"Boomer and GIO on the fan and the CBS sports network. Verbiage. Investors Bank studio over size in Greg, gene Audie, boomer and geo on the fan simulcast across the country on CBS sports network. Good Monday morning. Four with day off Jerry in for him. It's already chaos here and he's got a new computer system. The lights were off and Jerry just wrestled with his chair, because his headset was stuck inside of me, but I won you did. And all I heard was. Laughing at good morning, Jerry, our you. Oh, wonderful. How about yourself? I'm doing all right. Quiet morning for us. Yeah. I know so far crazy. But it was a really fun weekend after admit it was like the first real summer feeling weekend that we have had Memorial Day was nice, but this was absolutely perfect. Everybody got out in the sun and enjoy yourself and do all the things were supposed to do this time of year. But of course this morning as the Mets always seemed to do. They can't just fail. Normally they have to fail on a spectacular level, and they were on their way to winning four against the cubs. He said that my son yesterday morning who's all into the Mets still God bless him. Yeah, I said, you know, we're getting out my other son at a baseball game. I say you got degrom going today. Yeah. I said, we were basically mocking this team on fr. Friday after starting there. This horrid is daunting road trim having lost. Whatever it was where they won in three at that point. And we were killing them and you got the new the new pitching coach and everything's going terribly in here. You are you got degrom this afternoon. And if they figured out a way to win today, this team would be four and three on this daunting road trip with the absolute dying Phillies up next a couple of games under five hundred. You feel like that's striking and you six outs away for getting it done, and employment and more than just that, right? So we've seen them blow, how many games alright is year. So we've already seen that. So you kinda used to that because that is the Mets brand. I mean they were very on brand in blowing this game. But then afterwards you have in the clubhouse, Mickey Callaway, who we have been asking to be more fiery. We've asked to have more edge, but not in this way where. He is now getting in the face of reporters cursing them out. And then Jason Vargas coming to his managers defense utters, the words, I will knock you the bleep out, bro to Healy of Newsday. That's not the fire we were looking for. No looking for a little more professional fire out there on the baseball field, not the fire. I'm gonna go fight this reporter because apparently the way he said, I'll see you tomorrow. Mickey was unsatisfied. I wish I was there though. I really wish I was there to see this to see the facial expressions to see how it was said, what was said, because I actually went through the entire five and a half minutes. I know there was only a minute and fifty three seconds put online, but he spoke for five and a half minutes. I went through the entire thing, and I transcribed the questions the answers, and you're right. And let me be very clear about this because I don't want this to come off, that I think Micky Calloway's, saving his job, or should save his making Calloway's gonna end up getting fired. And this is not going to end. Well, I get it. This has been a mess for the last year and a half for a variety of reasons. But this notion that mismanaged the bullpen yesterday is comical, number one number two, I wish I could have heard the questions and seen them and seen what set him off. I don't know the Vargas thing. But in terms of Calloway seat tomorrow on paper looks like nothing but was it? How see you tomorrow, the inflection I don't know what was it? How is it? Let me read you a couple of questions though, you want to know why a manager gets ticked off and boomer has been on this for years and years, and years and years baseball managers talk wage much right before after all hell sometimes during the game from the dugout if it's ESPN and a national event. All right. So just a couple of questions for you. He's asked quickly. What was the overriding factor for leaving Lugo in the game? He's our best reliever. Okay. Do you argue that fact he has been absolutely? He goes been spectacular in the he has been by far. Their best reliever wasn't yesterday though. He wasn't even in the that's fine. You got three outs. Let's do that where else you gone go. Well, I mean, I think that everybody's gonna tell you, when oh, no no, no no, no no, no buddy will say that because twelve pitches in the last eight days. And if opposed to be this spectacular liberal pitch in the last eight days. Well, it was even less with right around the same number he right right around the same number. So that argument throw it out the window, but he was bad, though. That's the thing he got through the seventh. And he's got an oath to pitch on havi bias. Right. Wasn't good. I got it. But let's let's play devil's advocate. Take him out put Edwin windy as it gives up the home run still. But that's, that's your closer. But in the way, hold on a second go, you could tell was terrible, but it's still your best option got changing that bad when he's bitching that poorly. And you could tell these pitching that porn. Come on, man, you're, you're double play ball away from getting out of the Indian welts. When you're Mickey Callaway, who has by the way, last thing, I wanted to see was Edwin D as in that game in the thing tonight. You didn't see him and then they lost. So, but. His yes, hold on. Yes, DS has been a fraud, but the not one of the biggest criticism. Mickey Callaway, so far, especially this year has been that he does not have a feel for when to take guys out of the game who to go to how long to leave the starter in. So this is why people were freaking out are watching Seth Lugo, just not have it set. Lugo himself said at a forty orgy. Arguing them were good. Absolutely. And that point. Yes, there is better option. But I'm sorry. Day in this particular day, d d could have been a better option. And we never goes out there and sucks. Again. Okay. Again, but, but okay, either way, you know, the Lugo was going to blow it or maybe Diaz was going to blow it. But to me, if you have a feel for your team. And yes, d- has not been great. But if you have a feel and you're seeing Seth Lugo, who said that he stunk, and then you're in Mickey's, like I thought he had good stuff. He didn't. That is the problem. It's just another example of the manager. Not having his finger on the poorest, another example of the manager, and I haven't been able to go to that, too, but this, but this time you had you had the he can get five outs for once he could one reporter actually asked him if he's only good for three outs. Could you brought D as in there and then taking them out with two outs in the ninth to bringing his own there? I mean, come on. Yeah. But this is what we're this is what we're dealing with. You're looking at Chris flexing, Stephen guk stack. Pounders Wilmer font. Ngong sick. Whoever but I gotta mighty if you bring it windy as in that spot. He blows another game. You took your best reliever out and you know what it started right in the beginning of the eighth inning with Gary Cohn. I can't believe it windy as is not up, okay? I could because I'll tell you what I said to my son watching the game. If I see India's in this game before the ninth inning, I'm gonna throw something at the TV, I don't want him anywhere near this game in the eighth inning. He's been horrific. Yes. Especially when he comes in those other times too, that you have seen them in the eighth. It hasn't worked out. Well, listen, I understand that point. But I just I think that it's, it's the overarching theme. You're looking specifically this instance, I think what has a big problem with Callaway, is it just was another example. This guy doesn't have it. Why aren't you going to this guy that we've been sold is going to be an all star closer for you for a decade even though he's been bad. And you didn't go to them, and it's also annoying when you have heard them flip flop a million times on what would is beginning of the season. It was only three hours. It's only the night, then it was all we're going to put them in other situations. And then this seemed like a time that you would do that. And he didn't. So that's why people freak out. Yeah. There's always gonna be stupid questions. But I mean, to just rip into a guide to the point where the owner has to call him apologize, that just shows you how they feel about it. And the, the Mets side of this, their boss had to call him Healy, and apologize for this. I mean that's not an I don't know what, what see you tomorrow, would set somebody off in that way, you said, I wish I heard, you know what it was. Like wh what is the inflection of this? I do not know that's why I said, I would've loved to there and I think there's gotta be something more to it than that. But let's just theorize second-leg. Is it like the say in the morning? Like like it was like, all right. See you tomorrow Maki like, oh, we're going to do this crap all over again tomorrow, because is like his Dan, is that the one that's going to light his ass on. He's fighting I think you've got a manager, that's overstressed. I think he knows. And there's been a lot of people out there that are. Theorizing that he's trying to get him. So I don't want that at all. But there's been a lot of people that have said that. I don't know. There was one question he was asked about, is it an organizational decision that, you know, isn't going to go more than four outs. And he says, yeah, pretty much. That's right. And then the follow up was are you even allowed to use them for five outs? Like that's obnoxious. I do. Much. Wait a second. I think it's something that okay? The we're trying to figure out who's in control here. And if Mickey Callaway is gonna get crushed for this, and he's not even allowed to do it. It's a fair question in my mind. How about how many times we talked about how the, the general manager and everybody is making these decisions. But I but if you're telling me that he's not allowed to stretch it an extra out. I don't believe that I think it's, it's a guideline. They use he's not gonna go more than four unless he absolutely thinks it's necessary. He's trying to protect the crap that he's also gotten the bullpen. Yeah. At the end of the day. What this whole season comes down to, and you can blame anybody you want, and I'll say it again. And I'll say it six hundred times this morning. I'm sure someone or more people call up, and so you'll you defending, I'm not Nikki Calloway will end up getting fired because this is not worked out. Totally get it. And he's made enough mistakes to warrant that not arguing that point at all. But at the end of the day, this season has an will go down in flames because the bullpen is horrendous. Yeah. That is it. There's another game yesterday where Jacob degrom fought his way through six innings leaves with a lead doesn't get a win because the bullpen falters. And in this case, the bullpen falters, because there's no one else to go to. It's that simple. I didn't wanna see zooming in the game. I don't wanna see any of these other guys in the game. Seth Lugo in his last, it's amazing if you look at what he is done should be the only guy that he trust in there. I mean, he should and that's the point. Right. That is the point. You wanna tell me there's no feel? I'll take it the other way. I think he figured set Lugo at sixty percent is better than any other damn option. I've gotten this game. Also that, but the whole thing just makes you more and more nuts. Right. Because Diaz is I know. But that's this is what I'm saying. It's like you go back to this trade, and you were able to accept the corpse of Robbie canot, because you were getting Edwin agreed Lii, and he's under performed an in a spotlight this, where you feel like maybe because as your season, he's not for whatever he's not in the game theory, white people are screaming about it. I mean but sometimes what looks right on paper isn't right. And he's made enough mistakes in that way, that to me would have been a mistake to bring him in that game yesterday, just would've I know the result I get it eighteen of his ninth last nineteen outings at Lugo has given up zero runs. He's thrown two innings four times, and he threw three innings unless you were watching man. You know, the difference guys getting out and guy tuning out after he's. Getting crushed when he doesn't have it. But I I look at the bullpen and there was for me. There was no other option. Yeah. None. I was even get nuts the notion that he said, if he got Byas out. He was taking them out of the game. Why? I don't want zone for anybody, especially gazelle, man. Yeah. You're talking about coming in at that point, you can make the case, even know you're right. He has been bad. But gazelle men, no, not not anymore higher. Leverage its situation, if you could avoid it, but the problem is Mickey Callaway can't avoid that now we get to the point of where they go from here with this situation. I'd been saying now for months about Mickey Callaway, if you're going to fire him in just put Jim Riggleman there, then there's no point in my mind. Jim Riggleman has been like the world's intern manager. It never works out a guy gets fired Riggleman takes over the team still goes in the tank. What is the point about it? If you're gonna fire Mickey Callaway gotta bring in somebody else season, which is a weird thing you know, it doesn't happen all the time. But now after seeing this he's just. It's not he's not cut out for this. He's in over his head and now we're talking about a year and a half in where he's melting down in this way. I mean there isn't a thing and I understand he's got no weapons in the bullpen. I'm not even blaming him for that. But it's just the stuff after the games that he saying the fact that is born brings up all the time his approach this clubhouse, although they may love him. He's not getting the best out of most of this team. And then on top of it now, you have him breaking down in his unprofessional manner making a mockery of an organization doesn't need to be mocked more. He's now I would pull the ball and now and I won't argue that point, but I will ask you this. He's not getting the best of most of the team, you just said who he you're having pita Lonzo is having the case is the deal the rotation. This is why he was supposed to be here and there has the rotation. Not started to straighten out still they've been under performing for the longest time did. But at the end of the day the bullpen Dench job. Eighty percent of the time seventy five percent time. This is a different season. It just is you got Jeff McNeil three forty you got people have been great. Great guys have been great. But that's that's, that's reason Davis is performed when he's been a reason even more to get rid of them, because the pitching has been so frigging bad, and now you're wasting great seasons from homegrown position players, which you never get which makes us even agree. Even more culprit has been the bullpen that they can't figure out. But these are also guys in that bullpen, by the way like gazelle, and this is I've said this in defensive Brody at a miserable offseason. But I'm not gonna go back and change, my opinion on that. I thought he built a good bullpen. So he got Justin Wilson and we disagreed on the familiar thing, but I thought famo- is going to be okay if he wasn't the closer. And then Edwin on top of that in the fact that you had Lugo and gazelle back in the bullpen and not a part of the rotation. I thought they were going to have a good luego has been that the is no one else has. And I didn't we've talked about one hundred times. I didn't like the familiar thing that's for sure. There's no doubt, but it hasn't worked. They thing which I thought was the canot part of it. Terni another. He does he doesn't care anymore. He's dying me that double play ball. I understand. He wasn't gonna beat it out. Anyway, she one well on assisted one actually give it he he's just don't even blame him anymore. Like just, you know. Just. See I pulled my quad the softball game on Saturday. So now I totally where he's coming from what he's out of the box. But yeah I mean Robbie can. No, it's just it's so him now thinking about the rest of that contract, and how potato how he's going to get worse than this. I thought and I think some agree. I really did believe that was going to be so good that it warranted at least bringing him on the money's a different issue forget that. But just his presence here. And then you'd be this bad, even if he was average, and you've got the Diaz closure you thought you were getting it all made sense, is all gone up in flames and. God. I mean the bullpen is just atrocious and worst I've ever seen their gone Philly. Who cake it out of their own way they spent gazillions of dollars and there are a five hundred team all of a sudden. Yeah. And they've lost seven or eight straight games God if they win yesterday you'd be running into Philly on a high with a chance to do something. And now instead, we're talking about a team that I think if you were going to make a move you make it right after the final game before the all-star break. And I guess it's I don't know. I guess it's possible eats. The morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo. Forgiving away. Yankee tickets every hour this morning Yankees Orioles ticket. So stay tune for that. Also, Jack Hughes will be joining us in studio. Nine AM first overall pick in the NHL draft to the New Jersey Devils Jack Hughes out us joining us. And I'm kind of thinking that we've been saying capital, Cocteau's name wrong this entire time. I think it's Cafo Kako. That's what I think it is. I heard Minka calling them Cocco. Settles it but a bunch of fans that greeted him Rangers fans it showed up at the airport to greet him. You figure those are the guys who are going to know how to pronounce his name. They were doing a chant and they said, Capito, Kako. They were cap. Oh, Kako commence confusing. I know. I know. Did not Friday night. We were out softball game. I did not see him get selected and I didn't see the highlight. I don't know how to pronounce it, but you can't trust the guys because with the NHL Jeff Gordon stepped up and made the announcement. And these guys the NHL executives like they wanna get out of there. We want wanna be up there on stage. Right. They're not looking for any camera time. Sure, I wouldn't I wouldn't necessarily go by that. We got to settle this thing you saw the videos with him yesterday. Oh, yeah. Parade around New York. I feel bad for the gave me looks very well. I mean it's eighteen years old, right? Get into this whole thing, what a what a nice city. So we have the, the announcement of pick. What does this one, do you have we have some of the interviews just talking about New York City? Okay. All right. Let's listen to him. Just arriving New York while it's a nice eating. Just arrive in New York while it's a nice city. That was two different times. He said that actually. This is wonder if he was kicked in the face on the subway. By grandmother twist of irony retro shorts. These wild rats are wonderful. I'm this amazing the habitat that they have your great. I would like one as a pet. Puts the puck in the net. I'll be fun. No. Of course. I actually I had the same reaction as you did like this guy. That's too much camera. Timeframe mainly getting over well now you know, because all just spotlight from the second that he got here, different than RJ Barrett MSG with the suit on. He's up. There guy play. These do, he's on national TV a million times last year is a little bit different. All right. Ceelo is here with his update. What's going on? Chris brought to you by Buick GMC of Ma visit Buick GMC of Malwa dot com. Let us try and unpack this Mets disaster in order. So we begin Sunday Wrigley field. Bottom of the eighth Mets lead the cups three two. You get two on one out and a laboring. Seth Lugo facing havi or by with an oath to count the pitch. Breaking ball line, the air to right. It's could fought back this go. Let's go. The bleachers at right field three road Hct for hobby, as how he rose eighty. And you had both broadcast radio and TV kind of questioning it before it even happened those if they could see it coming, forty second and final pitch thrown. By Lugo, we only got four the six outs Mickey Callaway was looking for three to lead turns into a five three loss and a four-game split in Chicago. But the fireworks, of course we're just beginning set off by testy post game media gathering with the manager, who was grilled about his bullpen usage and trying to squeeze two innings out of Lugo on a day where he didn't appear to have best reliever up one run. You know, we know that when he has the opportunity to go the seventh in the eight. He's going to do except in this case he didn't. And there were plenty of first guesses about not going to Edwin Diaz for an extended saying for five out. He would have thrown the ninth of we will get into. Maybe I didn't we didn't get that. I wish you wanna said that. Yeah, that's what I wish you wouldn't have said because he wasn't even wasn't and he was not going to be available for four outs. And it was going to be Zelma and just one thing on Diaz because I wrote this down to I told you how good Lugo has been nine nine teen outings, giving up nothing, basically, what one run since mid-april before. It's ridiculous. How good he's been Diaz. Last seven outing so far fewer he's given up in three of those games. One run three runs in four hours. Yeah. Let's go to him, please. It's tricky options here was one more about Mickey just really not having any intention of using D as in the Lugo was gonna face by as either way. So, you know, and Cassoma it was going to step up if he didn't get bias. We didn't get the we didn't get by out. They just don't have they had guys and Lugo, didn't have it, which is going to happen when you like you said he's been great since mid April. I mean every now and then there's going to be one where they just they don't have it. Here was the sequence though. We're things really seemed. Get ten it's a little extended, but you have the questions and the answers in the back and forth, here with the media and Callaway. These days is a situation where you're willing to go five when he's been that lately again. No, we're not gonna use them for five outs. I know I know you guys keep on asking, but my answer is going to stay the same. You burning bowl talked about as an organizational decision that four ounces kind of the max there. That's exactly right. If you wanted to use DS for five when you out to the game in the moment, of course. I mean, does that need to be a plan, you guys rediscussing valuable about using him for four verses five? No. I mean just because you think so absolutely not. We have a very good plan. We know what we're doing and we're gonna stick to now. Good points. Jerry had said, you know, you don't know, Tim Healy's voice that is Matt e hall. They're asking that last question the other voices. I'm not sure I don't know. I don't know to Mealey's voice myself either. So I don't know if he was part of the questioning that led to what happened after the fact in the clubhouse, or if Maki, which is ready to snap at whoever said that won't point he's smiling, like he's trying to be polite and just got the best early. It was the, the ill phrased. See you tomorrow. Well, yes. At set them off was he tomorrow? Mickey like how are you in the morning? Like, how do you think like, give me the see you tomorrow? How can we go on the boat Friday? What do you mean? It was raining. So, like, could you have envisioned a scenario we would want on the boat. Could I envision are you going to do this thing? I don't wanna participate in this. I want to do something more fun than that. All right. So you get the point. Yes. So we'll you answered the question. But here's times they keep asking it. Okay. But you're a manager. This is what you do. I'm sorry. Right. And then, you know, you're going to be right. Daughter after awhile with it. You're good. No, you're not. Time for that. I wanna see fire now you don't do full of crap r-. I know you well enough now at your full of crap. If I had said the opposite, you would have said the opposite true. I'm telling you, right. You cannot condone any part of that behavior in the clubhouse, you buy shoes, instead of best, the media's undefeated, and they will continue to be undefeated. So Mickey's on his way out get your shots in. Well, I mean, seriously, what you gotta say. But what see you tomorrow would set? I that's all it was what everybody was saying. Alad done that. So I wanna know if there was more there, I think it was just like the questioning was done for today in his tomorrow is like all be back here tomorrow with these same exact questions. Completely. What did you think none of? That's why we. Tim Healy meant this. In fact, everyone all the other beat reporters have come to his defense. In fact, he answered questions himself to Newsday. See you tomorrow if, if, if he said, it's are cast as in hey, you, you may not be here. Maybe losing your job because of what happened today. You know what I mean, there's a lot that could could have happened and we know Mickey, obviously, was fired up a little bit smarter. Right. Smartest way said something else. Maybe, maybe you're right on the surface hemming Tamara pal it just like that. There had to been this guy has been too nice for to saying it's the tone that apparently set him off, and I want to know what tone is so bad with a see you tomorrow. Go on your mother Ephron the guy to death and the clubhouse. I mean I don't think that there's a seat tomorrow possible. Like if that's all that was. But I mean this thing was so, heavily reported on, we wouldn't have missed fill in a couple of the blanks, not that we were there, have the audio the seat. Tomorrow prompted the don't be a smart ass comment. But then the version of the events is Mickey walked away circled back a couple of minutes later. And then he'll he tried to say, listen you know, I didn't I didn't mean anything by that. And that's he just wanted. No part of hearing any explanation. And that's where he really got worked up and hit him with the mother effort got the PR staff. Get this mother f or out of here, you know that there wasn't wasn't like it all happened in one quick sequel. Few minutes. And then the Vargas thing had been right? Years thing, I'd like to know what the hell is all about last guy. After right after Mickey tore into Healy, and then walked away, right? Vargas was giving them the stairs. Now seconds was there down. And then Healy said the have something to say to me, and then he did, which was knock you the bleep out. Carlos Gomez holding them back. I mean that just picture that Lassus and the long hair, of course. I mean, when you say the last guy in the roster, you really is the last time, I would think would say, I will knock you the blackout. He's feeling his oats guy wasn't good the other day, but he's been good. It must have been tough for Healy to, to not accept that challenge. Vargas. Looks like a crazy. Yeah. Strange does see some of the shifts that are on. He looks like you so high. Doc, somebody out. Yeah. But there's like that look about him that he just looks that I would say it. Let me play you one more. We have plenty to get to audio from the Mets this morning. But we mentioned mad he hauled who has that last question to Mickey that prompted the just because you'd think so, so he's with the record and he was with lower here on the fan last night, kind of corroborating Tim Healy in the fact that there was no ill intent with what he said, initially with the tomorrow that there was something malicious behind which there was not. I you know, Tim work with them. Everyday break Chit chat would not like Mark Dickey link. That's just not at all. What would happen? And then my Puma was on with Chris. He said something. It's amazing. We have like eight cuts from beat writers colder here. Just tell you all you need to know about the situation but Puma and I'll play this for you later. His opinion, obviously not based on fact things that make trying to get himself. I told you that's what these people, I know I heard this trust, and that Mickey has basically no say over anything. That's happening right now with the team whether it's lineups bullpen usage, he's being told what to say to the media now again, that's his opinion based on everything that he's gathered, but a weird way to try to get far and a half left on his contract. If obviously if he resigned doesn't hade, right. Give fired. Get paid pitching. Doug, I with no pants. Or make his own lineup. Maybe. What how dare you write the lineup? You're the manager. You don't do such things. Stupid. This day. Really is speaking of Brodie he's apparently going to be in Philadelphia now. I mean, maybe he was anyway. But now they're definitely sending him today, and he's supposed to address the situation at some point later on before they played a Phillies who have their own issues. They've lost seven in a row. Gape Kappler was a little testy. I'm sure it was game Prescott guy. He said, I will knock you the bleep would start. Fascinating series man. I'm not even I'm sorry. They were five outs away from taking three or four what we're talking about traits them the regression to the mean. Right. Dr team is what it is. You know, you can only go so. Before you have to go back at one point they said something along the lines of you know how do you even look at this team right now? And he said, we are we are we can't we can't get any traction we win five. We lose five and five every ten and it's like, we just kinda stuck between three under a couple over three under couple over and they can't seem to figure it out. And just to be fair to the Mets. They did release the apology statement, last night, and Jeff wilpon personally called Tim Healy to apologize. Let him know it is one of two feel uncomfortable doing his job moving forward. You got Stephen Matt's opposed by Zach eflin 705 tonight coverage on WCBS eighty now. Ask a question. If Tim Healy today. Yes, you have to do. Ballsy I think right after Gelb Zack's is first to you're the first question guilds. He's true. He's got the paternity. Yes. Yeah. At the stadium, seventy third old timers day festivities put everyone in a good mood, especially with Marian Rivera, stealing the show, but then J half took the mount against the Astros, and right away, all Juba. It's about it. It's that is God in the second deck. What a home ruined by Jose L to. And just like that. The Astros take a one nothing lead. John sterling air, on the fan, first of three long, Longbow served up by half on the day including Tyler whites grand slam in the fourth hap- tag for eight runs on eleven hits both matching career highs over four plus Houston built a nine nothing lead. It ended up nine four victory to snap their seven-game skid and the keys winning streak at eight hap- serving of homers at an alarming rate, especially at home. Here's Aaron Boone on his struggling left-handers fly balls can hurt you, when you make mistakes with I think just enough mistakes. I think he's been hurt a little bit by some balls here that have just got. Now, Don Alvarez also took him deep. How about that Homer? Sixteen RBI's in his first twelve big league games. He's betting three thirty three for Houston. Plug in one of their injury holes as for hap- says he's not going to dwell on this one for too long. There was a game you know, possibly try to flush you know, we had a good series and say opening pets we certainly cushioned by having won the first three and still six and one homestand just in. Orlando pretty much on cruise control. He did allow three run home and a DJ LeMay. Hugh in the fifth twenty six straight game with a home run for the new franchise record. One off matching the major league record set by the Rangers that in two thousand two Lamaze you finish three for four three RBI's to runs scored Giancarlo Stanton had the day off Aaron judge owed for ten four strikeouts. Since returning from the L, Colton long. Yeah. I think so. You see the play he might. You're kidding. Did you see for an Endo teach June? I hang up on a pop up to second right behind second God. And the guy like double double, and they call them out, and they went to show. So. Cameron made into the I L now. He's got the strain left calf expected to miss six weeks. So that kind of took care of itself, pretty quickly, Yanks host the Blue Jays for three before heading off to London. You've got about all throwing sensuous tonight's opener. Pre game on the fan. Six twenty five. Six games, two hundred did beat the Red Sox yesterday, six to one, Mark Stroman pitched very well, it's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo. From the investors Bank. Studio, it is geo Jerry in four boomer this morning. He will be back tomorrow, on the fan CBS sports network Hopi at a wonderful summer weekend. It was sunny it was beautiful. It was everything that we wanted except if you're a Mets fan who had to deal with that nonsense yesterday. Tim Healy did of Newsday was involved in this directly did decline politely declined to come on the show this morning. So he said, he's, he'll let the David Lennon article speak for it self that David Lennon wrote about the exchange. What's that Lennon him? I don't know. I didn't I didn't see he should have. Right. It means school, right? I guess so. The tape recorder of making now can I get you? I know. Hey, he's not talking anybody else Newsday should definitely made an exclusive in done something about it. But I know one guy had headed up on the board and it and bring it up when you went to the call. The fact that no-one captured any video of this thing about all the cameras that are usually out in rolling. Yeah. Really surprising that no one caught it. Yeah. I mean I, I do think that there is a chance that someone did catch it and the Mets today. What can we do to make sure that this doesn't get out there type of thing and could like let's say it was an SM y camera is an S N Y Cam, we're going to put that out. That's not what I mean though. I think more so all the local TV news cameras that are roaming around the hallways, and the and the clubhouse, at the at the end of the game, the phone video, just whatever. Sure it just seems like everything gets caught these days. Yeah. No, I, I agree. And then maybe there is video. We just don't know. Is there video of Vargas charging like a raging bull and being held back by I hope so. I did see that either. I did see out, re tweet someone who wrote to our Twitter account that he's just waiting for the news that Syndergaard pulled his hamstring holding Vargas back. Yeah. I mean I do think that there's a chance still because there's sometimes there's delayed videos, just happened in someone might have it now and might be shopping at around type of thing, too. That's a possibility possible. But you be that is that is the prime place for that to be caught. Everybody's got their phones in their calves phones. Everything surprising that there's nothing. Yeah. And it's you know it's what twelve four fourteen hours ago. At this point this surprising, I just, you know, when you when you hear about this, like the game was bad enough. Right. So, so people can can understand when you do this job you, especially on a Sunday night. You've had a weekend you start thinking about on Sunday, what the show is going to be amount. So then as I'm watching all of this unfold with the Mets bullpen, I'm like, okay, here we go. Again, it's the same type of stuff. But this is going to be the story. Same story ending. Right. Right. So I said, we'll spend some time on it, but it's just tiresome some now the whole bullpen. Thing and they'll be some arguments calls on Diaz. Vs Lugo and then you start looking at Twitter as a bam, bam Vargas getting held back. Mickey says mother bleeper Tim Healy says see Amaro Mickey incites riot on like you've gotta be kidding me. Like how does this happen, just especially with Mickey Calloway? If you would've told me of all the crazy things that would have gone on with this team that it would have been Mickey Callaway and Jason Vargas. Who snapped again, Vargas? Any of the players doesn't surprise me. Vargas. Calloway's persona doesn't seem to be that type of guy. But I guess everybody's got their breaking point whatever it was. And again, I don't necessarily know think we know exactly what happened. But according to the, it is surprising that if that's what set him off. It's weird. Yeah. Very weird degrom finally losing it, Syndergaard losing. It wears on you after awhile. You even look at the weekend and. Again. We mocked them on Friday morning for that start on Thursday with the way things wound up. And then here we go you come back in, you win Friday you win Saturday. And one of the winds and resounding fashion where they're blowing them out and they're feeling real good about themselves. And, you know, maybe offensively they didn't have the best day yesterday. But you got to grab on the mound. You've got a lead. You're in the late innings and again it happens. They're human at some point. These other guys gotta be like it's almost like never Peyton Manning. With the look it up kicker. Mike Jack right. At some point you sit there and save your football team. And you've played this amazing football game or this really tough fought game. All these guys are killing each other, and then the kicker misses a twenty eight yard field goal to win it time after time after time. He said, they're like, what are we doing? Yeah, I know any similar. And I do I do try to during these meltdowns give someone the benefit of the doubt. Because we've all had meltdowns it happens all the time. Now, I, I don't melt them. Yeah. Okay. So I try to keep that in perspective. But I just this, like, I don't, there's nothing compares like in my life to what the major league manager has to deal with. There's nothing really read like to have to answer the questions constant stress the only can compare it to is. It doesn't happen a lot where you have a manager and a player getting in the face of reporter and not in the player wanting to fight the got how McCray y'all? Yes, I was agreeing. That was that was sorta. Yeah. Paldon your boy. That's right. Absolutely. I mean, this great manager meltdowns but it's not always two ways specific media member. Right. We've talked very might have been though. Yeah. That the phone Adam right. Yeah. That was that was definitely, John. Join the cubs went off on the attendance. That was that was the porter greatest rant baseball rant ever, Leo, you. Right. Which we played with nine thousand incident that I mean that and he was fired, right? After that obvious. There's your blueprint, by the way, Mickley trying to get yourself. Yes. So if people don't know this go to YouTube type in Lille year rant and just don't have any children around. It is amazing. And he just rips the cub fans they don't work in. They call them all sorts of names, everything that showed up. Right. So Mickey if you wanna get fired you go. You listen to Leah rant and then you go and you try to recreate that like crush all the Mets fans. Crushed. The seven line cross Darren from the seven line cross s and what just go after all that. And then boom, next day will be gone. What do you think the conversations like pre-game between Gabe Kappler and Mickey Callaway? What the hell we doing here game? This is crazy. I'm drawing. Get my aunt's fired Cape. Gabe kaplan. It's guy does not wanna get fired. Gabe caddo not at all. But I mean he's under pressure to Dave law seven or eight in a row. I forget what it is. And there a five hundred team and all of a sudden you've gotten out of the Braves have the greatest of weekends. But they're chasing Atlanta now. Yeah. You know what's funny about Kappler is remember when Bryce Harper was looking around, who's gonna sign with and one of the things that apparently had tipped the scales Bryce Harper, Philadelphia was how him and Gabe Kappler, it hit off out in Vegas. And that was one of the reasons this is a guy could play for him. Yeah. And now mid mid way through his first season as a Philly he's on the hot seat game. Kevin Bryce Harper for season. Gabe Kaplan on the hot seat. So it's like it just what the hell's the point right? Develop a, a relationship with your manager. It doesn't matter the reasons on the hot seat is because Bryce Harper sitting to forty sure I know they put him in the lead off. Spot the other day, nothing works. Yeah. I mean when they were winning is the thirty million dollars a year for nobody was really talking about it. And now I mean base AB had his worst year as a pro last year. I know that that was always the point. And you can't have bad years when you're making that kind of money it's the same thing that and Giancarlo Stanton was good this weekend for sure. But it's kind of what we were talking about with him when you make that kind of money. You're not allowed to go on an ogre Twenty-one. Yeah. You can't bet to twenty strikeout two hundred and thirty five time, especially in Philadelphia and New York. Right. Those are the places that are not going to let you get away with it unless you are in judge who was over ten since coming back from injury. And he's the chosen one scores. But if it was John Carlos then down from injury, making no money. Right. That, that is another big part of it. But if that were that were standing who came back over demand Machado combat to what does he baton to nine to ninety with the Padres having an okay season. But as he lived up to thirty million dollars a year, I would say. He's not absolutely not even close. Pita loans got ten more home runs than than shadow has. But he's in San Diego little different. He can survive. Just find out there is a shame that this pita Lonzo season has been overshadowed by dude. Yeah. Well, Pete Alonzo's breaking records McNeil should be an all star hope he should be. You know, I hate the words coming out of my mouth actually just annoyed me. Because now I'm back to doing this thing that we have to do as Mets fans during the season is root for these little meaningless things to make us feel better, that me nothing. I was just about to say, I hope McNeil is an all star. At least we'll have that or whatever. And then I remembered to last year. I hope that a degrom wins the Cy Young team sucks. At least we have something I will say this to that, though, you're, you're not wrong and they're four games under five hundred. Absolutely. But I will say this before I'm going to and I said before this road trip, I wasn't saying the season was over yet. You look at what they have now you've got these four with Philadelphia. No. Seriously? I know the Phillies are in the tank right now. Would you not agreeing? They are terrible ripe for the picking you've got four and Philly. And then you come home against Atlanta and you right before the all-star break. This is it right here. So before you throw in the towel because I think a lot of people throw in the towel because they were gonna get smoked in Atlanta and Chicago and they should be four and three the three and four fine. Fair enough, go take three out of four here. And let's see where you're at the all-star break before you have to just route for little thing, you're not that you're close. You're not there just yet. You're not I you make a lotta sense. You make a lot of sense. It's just it's I have I have very little faith in things starting to van with this current roster. They wanna tell me go out and swing a deal to head to more guys that bullpen. Okay, let's talk, but things have worked out with the roster. That's what needs to be fixed. And that's and I saw I guess they had conversation with them. Why not bring Cody Alan, and yeah. Right. You know, they got beat on him to. Sure, right. I, I mean there are things they. You can still do I will say from a positive standpoint. There's not a lot, but from a positive standpoint, this is the first time in a very long time that they have a young position player core that has for the most part state healthy. I mean, you think all the way back to write and race. And how their careers got derailed by certain injuries. I mean, the fact that you can look and say, you know, yet Conforto as underachieved a little bit expected more out of him, but still same thing with resort, but I'm not ready to give up on those guys. But the fact that McNeil Alonzo Conforto Rosario I mean, that is that's better than they've had Dom Smith show. Absolutely. I wish you could play morning at a natural position out there that made sense for him. But, but yeah, I mean the fact that they've got that I feel like it's been forever since you could say that they're building around a core of their own guys that they have cultivated, pita, Lonzo already breaking the rookie homerun record for the Mets of Dow strawberry already before, if you look at that list of guys who have had twenty seven home run. Or more before July. I, I it's, it's unbelievable. I mean he is in some incredible company. He's in he's gotten to the police for me. My son watch these games. It's like strawberry back in the day, when he's up you want mission. You can't match wanna see how far is gonna hit the ball. Yeah. He does not miss mistakes, either, you can see the frustration on these pitchers faces when he's hitting these balls out. Because there and at this point, you would've thought that if the league was going to catch up with him and learn how to pitch him and gain that advantage back that he might have had the beginning of the season that it would've happened by, right? Because all the data that is out. And I just think at this point just better than everybody. He he just he's proven that hard to argue. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Greg nutty, boomer and geo. It is rumored GO on the fan. CBS sports network. More Yankee tickets, this hours on the next thirty five minutes or less. We'll be giving them away. Yankees Orioles tickets, you don't wanna miss that. We've got ceelo back with us to detail the nonsense happened out in Chicago with the Mets. And Mickey Callaway Jason Vargas. Unfortunately, we don't have audio of this, nor video of any of it, because it would sounds like it would have been the greatest thing ever. I'm with Jerry. I'm very surprised. No one had anything, whether it was a tape recorder rolling who uses tape recorders anymore. You know phone, digital recorder TV cameras in the middle the clubhouse. Yeah. Someone might have it, and it just hasn't been released yet. The Mets are in bar going it. T- TMZ sports will drop it at some point today. Probably wouldn't surprise me. Sounds like it's you'd imagine a pretty cramped clubhouse there at Wrigley as well. Small, that's what they said. The reason why everybody heard this is because like one end of the clubhouse the others spitting distance, so you really can't miss anything in that. Someone's gotta have it then. Yeah, you would think. What, what part of a do you wanna you're the most to me? It's the Jason Vargas without question. Even more than the Mickey lose his mind, then I just I'd love to hear the Jason of ARGUS. I will knock you the bleep out, bro. All right. So what do you got brought to you by ultra hair surged shampoo? It's surge, my hair dot com, S and why boots had come and they talked about it before. And after wasn't set lugos day go up in the count for we're time today. Bias beep to right back. Goes Conforto near the wall. Bias with his one hundred career home broad three one shot to give the cubs the lead in the eighth inning, Gary Cohen, and why he keep and run all openly questioning the decision to Lugo in the game for a second inning of work by us hits. The home run the Mets lose five to three settling four split of the four-game series with the cubs Aluko appear to be laboring his way through this particular outing twenty pitches in the seventh out of it with a double play ground ball, single, and a walk sandwiched around a fly out in the eighth before bias took him, deep forty two pitches, and all his worse, adding since mid-april. He knew he was a little off. And I think of through probably two or three pitches, I was happy with out of thirty so no stuff, just when they're today to the two prior to the home run to prior to two inches run to best pitches, which Mickey said we executed two pitches to county hangs a slider. And there you go. Mickey Callaway, though, asked about lugos performance hit good stuff. You would have gotten through it. We just didn't execute one pitch disconnect. There is that Lugo felty had nothing. Whereas Mickey said he thought he had good stuff. Take that for what it is, as we mentioned the hanging slider by as he takes it the other way, literally just after s and why it showed a graphic about how biases numbers against breaking balls had improved drastically over the course of the last couple of seasons not to say you're never gonna throw him a breaking ball, but they literally flash that on the screen next pitches in the seats for the go ahead. Three run Homer, the easy, second, guess or for many. I guess, why not go to Edwin d as for what would have been a five outside. We've said all along that deals are closer and we we're going to make sure that he stays in that in that comfort zone. They have said he could be used for more than three outs. He never picked up a baseball, the warm up in the eighth inning yesterday, talking about having a plan in deviate away from it, there had to be a really good reason is this fall under that category. No, no. It does it. We have other relievers that can get outs and can get the job really. This time around. Didn't help the Jacob degrom only got through six ninety seven pitches. He'd been above one ten in each. On his foot. He said something happens. He gets a callous based on the mound and the rubber depending on where they play, I guess the push off foot presumably, so I know some people saw him flexing his arm at one point they were concerned that he was dealing with pain there. But he actually said afterwards his foot was bothering a little bit and outside of that Calloway said he really had nothing left. He's got worn out came in. He's been working hard, as last few starts, and he was just gassed. Now we've heard all about when went down in the clubhouse after Calloway's media availability came to an end. The confrontation with Tim Healy of Newsday Calloway cursing him out after Healy said see tomorrow, Mickey. PR to remove him from the clubhouse Jason Vargas than challenging Healy to a fight. He had to be restrained quite the sequence of events, the Mets since apologize. Both publicly and privately to Healy, got a phone call from Jeff wilpon last night. Fellow beat reporter my Puma of the New York Post join Chris more here on the fan at last night. He's got a theory on why Cadillac suddenly snapped Mickey Callaway might be at the end of his rope here. He's getting coached in every direction, how to deal with the media, who should be in his lineup. When do us relievers. I mean he is not his own man there. He maybe at the point now where he's just like the heck with it thinks he could be looking at himself, fired also paints a bleak picture of the disconnect between the front office and the club, it was described that the distrust between the two levels that a high point in recent years, even worse than last year when it was, was pretty bad, which is concerning considering got a first year GM and, you know, they were here. In the off season. The two of them came together. With, with Mike and everything seemed Koumba, always well, brody's positive and Mickey's Pozo. He's talking about the Mickey Brody relationship, not, not the entire office in general. Yeah. Coaches plural. Dave islands has got himself fired, and I found it. I mean, this could mean nothing but I found it interesting watching the optics of when van wagon and met with the media after the island standing right next. It was weird. I know Mickey eventually stepped in and spoke. But he it was like he was sitting there essentially being told to heal, you know, like just standing next to him silent or two guys, I felt bad for in the similar situation. Mickey standing next to Brody yeah. For that. And when they had bras day gets next to RJ. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Press conference the other day because no one's issues talking to you. It was all about. Barrett, of course. Yeah, I caught this yesterday as well. Which could mean nothing, Ed Randall, who does the talking baseball show here. Sunday mornings, usually very, you know, middle of the road, he's gonna have guys on. They're gonna doll positively and he had repeaters on former met pitching coaches to talk about the dynamic of you. Fire, the pitching coaches and actually do anything's mean, anything and ED's said he had an impeccable source. Use the word impeccable that said island flew with the team to Chicago was summoned to Brody suite on off he meant at the hotel or at the game. And that when he was brought in to get the news that he was being fired. Mickey was there never said a word the entire meeting Nikki's didn't say, I said a word which again, brings me back to him having to stand next to Brody when they announced the firing to the media, and nothing while Brody speech, just I don't know. Hearing. No, no, I'm not getting on Mickey. I'm just saying you wonder what he's even being allowed to say it was my point. He's reached his breaking the blame him as someone annoys me. I'm gonna say someone annoys me. Yeah. So it's, it's a strange I'm starting to turn on this. Mickey getting himself fired thing. Like, I'm starting to think that there might be something to -sarily. Here's what I would say to that. I don't think he is on purpose trying to get himself removed as as much as he might be saying to himself. You know what the hell with this? I'm just going to do it, my way if it gets me fired. So when I'm at least going to be more of myself. Yeah. What you can't be a manager in baseball. These days, your guy, you don't know. No chance with Mike. Just think about the dynamic of what we're talking about picture that's being painted. I'm joking. I mean it sounds been what I know sounds worse than what Girardi was dealing with with Brian Cashman at the end. Maybe even much worse. Brian Cashman has a track. And a champion at least how many manage you managers. Do you think are still allowed to be a manager? Like Joe Madden. You have to assume still as in him lay off season about dealing with millennial dummies. But do you think that even he is not allowed to make up the lineup? See, I don't think I I don't think it goes that far with him. I think he gets in chore, right? Type bay general manager. There is a lot of success. Yeah. Resident there's a GM under him to jed Hoyer. Yes. So I think that there's a chance that he gets gets the line sent to them to do you really. I do. Yes. Especially thank you should do today, wink, wink. I really do believe that because just because of this past off season. He had to change everything because of their disappointment LA. I mean, they've had a lot of success right there. Thinking eighties. Nothing's giants now right that, right? Bruce Bochy probably I would think is allowed to make up the lineup. He would tremendous success in San Francisco. Right, old school guy. He probably wouldn't stay in that job. If he wasn't allowed to at least read. So how do you think that there's more than five allowed to do it? I don't think they're not even be that high. Who knows? Why would you take one of those jobs and they're basically what the job is now? And you make a lot of money. You don't make as much money as you used to the other way. It's not available. Right. I mean, I guess if you're if you're someone who has got good skills in dealing with a clubhouse. That's all you need to have. Now, when you have good skills, dealing with the medium, you'll that to write, of course, because then they'll chew up in some places in other places. They don't care. But in, in other places, I mean like here in Philadelphia, if you don't handle it correctly, you're just going to get pounded to death like Mickey Callaway, you'll most need a guy like Brody the manager because he always says the right thing you feel. Shea was, but it doesn't fly in a place like this though. No. But I don't necessarily mean him. I just mean, someone that is just very well spoken to the press and knows what to say when to say it, even when he selling you a Bill of goods. Yeah. Like Gabe Kaplan, was supposed to be the key so put Brody and Mickey shoes as you pointed out in boomer. Always points out, you have to speak multiple every day. Do you think that would hold up with Brody over the he he parachutes in when he wants to say something right? He's he was front and center for a while. Then all of a sudden he wasn't hear from him later today. We kill them when he first got the job. But Aaron Boone seems to do a decent job with the media, he does he does right now, does things are going. Well, there was an instance earlier in the season where they were struggling, and you started to hear a little a little. I heard from somebody that at that time, there was a little bit of bristling. All right now again when you win games and things are going. Well, when you win that was the case for me Girardi was that way too. So I mean it is what it is. Giradi was fine. Yeah. Aaron Boone did bristle in that very seat when we played the master of puppets thing for him. Retold him that whole deal about how he gets the what everything to say in his earpiece from Brian Cashman he didn't love that. I want to. I wonder why would you right? At least we did. At least we told them Ron stripe. And by the way, Brodie, I don't think would hold up. You mentioned. Would he over a long period time? Let's not forget his first four Ray. Right after the press conference in talking to Mike. He got that like fighter thing coming out, and he started punching back with the name me, the are we better than the Braves. He has for better than the Braves. Yes. We're going to be favorite so heat like him in that spot would absolutely start to ramp up and probably challenge the media way more than Mickey Callaway day. Right after a loss you getting grilled about your decision making, you know, it's, it's I would say naturally get frustrated in spots for for most people, right? Yeah. It's a tough spot, the Yankees just quickly Phillies tonight in in Philadelphia. It'd be interesting series because the Phillies are dealing with their own struggles members of the Astros came out to watch the old timers ceremonies at the stadium yesterday. And then they played homerun derby with Jay hap- to snap their seven game losing visits. Swing on. The right a deep judge back on track the wall, she's gone. It's a grid slim. White Tyler white draws wound or right and out as a grand slut and the Astros take a six nothing lead. John, of course, here on the man. Yeah, pretty much the dagger as Houston built a nine nothing advantage ended up nine four victory to snap the Yanks winning streak at aid. It was a tough game all around even for John himself and the two swan hunter the bright, it is high. As far as. Our gang is not great broadcast booth. Jazz on the first base out of home play. I was surprised to even watching on TV. I thought it was a home run to so they go well not John's fault. A tough one Yanks fence. Didn't have much cooking against Justin Verlander, even DJ. Lemay Hughes, three run Homer in the fifth to right field, just snuck into the first couple of rows hap- meantime, roughed up for eight runs on the Levin hits over four pluses ERA now above five. How can he turn it around for Aaron Boone key for him being precise, and what he's been in good at throughout his career when he's been good for us this year to he's got to stop giving up the long ball deal you try to limit those to the solo shots and should be okay? Today wasn't that was a solo shot for Jose altuve as leading off the game? You're on Alvarez also took him deep. The olds got seven homers guys, six looks like it. Nineteen twenty one game leave Twenty-one. They call them the, the main baby or something child, or whatever something like that. But he's minor league numbers ridiculous, too. So he's, you know, you can see it's carrying over twenty one he will be twenty two this week, June twenty-seventh very happy birth LeMay. You finish three four three RBI's to run scored his Homer. Did make it twenty six straight with a long ball for the Yanks? New franchise record. Their one matching the major league record Cameron. Maybe lands on the I L strain left calf expected. Miss six weeks. Yanks the Blue Jays for three before heading off to London for that to game set at the Red Sox you cease about the Aaron Sanchez tonight's opener pre game on the fan. Six twenty five as for old, timers day, Marianna was the star making his first appearance he pitched he threw guests he played center field could sign him. Yeah. He I mean, I'm not even kidding. I don't know if you watched it, he got to be. So we so is in the box mid that most one I mean. Was no radar gun but it looked like SoHo might have needed. A little change of his underwear. Yeah. And then Marianna comes up with the bat and promptly hits the first pitch into the gap inside the park home run. So it was a lot of fun. Here's how he re-getting. Of the first time I'm. Old timer is amazing. Enjoy out of great time today. It'll be fifty in November, and he was still moving around the basis. Pretty well, says he's still working on his speech for next month hall of fame ceremony up in Cooperstown. Give you one other thing from out of town action. First place dodgers with their third straight, walk off win of the Rockies, even Charley Steiner by surprise. Better. Drifting on back. Pairing. Out dodgers win again on a walk off Busey dodgers radio network to that point. A couple of things there, a clay bell claim, Cody Bellinger. It's the foul ball that it's the woman in the front, or I guess, row four or something she went to the hospital, but to the point of the home run, did you see Todd Frazier his home run the other day, which, which twenty hits the home run, and he slams that bat down because opted on C and it went out to check his goal in someone's gotta check. He's not surprised. He says, yeah, it didn't look did. But this happened with, but this one to Jerry's point, at least he reacted as if he didn't think it was going out in a couple of weeks ago, or whatever it was. We're none of us thought it was going out. He said he got the barrel on that, right? This one he throws the bat down in anger, as if that he'd just popped up. And next thing you know the balls out, and he's just barely getting the first base, because he clues trotting because the Papa the balls are flying for Sherry, see the guy in Texas the other night he had a five hundred home. I thought there dick jeeze wasn't gala wasn't. No. It was. I did see it, though. I keep away. Just Google it on the upper deck, right field. That was rookie Will Smith by the way, the dodgers pinch to out game winning three run Homer bottom. Nine as the dodgers stunned Colorado six three all three walk-offs came with a rookie delivering the winning blow which is the first time that's ever happened in major league history. So the dodgers are doing quite well for themselves in the NFL west raise one Red Sox loss to the Blue Jays, the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo. From the investors Bank. Studio, it is over in GO on the fan across the country on CBS sports network talking about the Mets and dysfunction going on them. And the fighting of reporters and Jason Vargas, getting into face and trying to fight Tim Healy of news days. Same thing with Mickey Calloway, calling them more bleeper, after another bullpen meltdown, better news. We had a fantastic game against the wounded warriors on Friday night. The wounded warrior amputee team the game had to be moved because of field conditions and we thank everybody. They got the worry out including Mike who said it a couple of times on the air, which really helped a lot of listeners, get to the game in the proper location. Because it got changed at, like, four fifteen. So we were bombed that we couldn't play in the original field, but enough people still came out and that was off. Awesome. And those guys are just amazing. They are the most inspirational bunch. I ever been around Greg Reynolds who we had in studio with us to promote the game a little while ago. Watching him out on the field is incredible. He plays in right field. And he of course, had lost his entire arm and shoulder. So he keeps the glove on his hand and then catches the ball drops the glove picks it up with his hand and throws the ball in. And by the way, he hit from both sides of the plate because we put a shift on them or boom, but she Donham rather, and he got up with is switch. He was mainly lefty. Then gets up the right side of the plane gets a hit there, too. And he's just one of many guys out there all the entire team, and it's a bit pageantry is off the charts. They come out of the bagpipes it is just it was. That was incredible. Absolutely incredible. And we thank all of them for allowing us to participate. There was a bad ceelo throw their we just we just saw. But for the most part, we played we played pretty well Jerry, I mean, I know you sent out some stuff on, on Facebook and on social media from this game just sitting there and watching this, you could do nothing but being all of their athleticism. Yeah. And there's, there's such an inspiration for everything you want to do, because they do it, and God, what they're dealing with. And watching each batter, come up to the plate, one after the other and see how they live their life. And the fact that they don't let anything stop them is inspiring. It's the only word that I can come up with. And I was starting to write one, because I posted a couple of Dios, and I was starting to write one, you know, and I stopped for no reason other than they thought it was enough. I put a couple there's ever a time in your life. When you say you can't do something or I just don't feel like it. I mean shame on you. Shame on us because watching these guys do, I don't think that thought process, even enters their mind because if it did. They wouldn't be out here. You're talking about double EMT's the gentleman. You're talking about playing right field catching the ball thrown it up to himself and getting it. I mean it's just ridiculous. And very inspiring really was nothing else to say was as I opening as it is every time I coulda used some of that mentality when I pulled my clod on Saturday and the game against the ocean bay area. Yeah. I mean I just I got so bummed out. I gotta be honest with you. How are you today? It's can't run. But I definitely it just, you know what it is, is this? Why got so frustrated. Is I get in shape, I lose all this weight, and I'm still pulling mussels slow, but you're not in that type of shape they're either. I mean in fairness, and then admittedly, you don't wanna do anything. Let I don't. I don't fitness. I don't I mean well, no competitive athlete account though. Now I do. Now I do get on a bike and stuff. I enjoy. I enjoy. Okay in the summertime and everything and the bike that I did, the, the bike, Tori. And I love getting on that. I mean that's fun for. I'm talking about competing. I can't compete him. I don't have it in me. Right. I serious. I can't. I just I'm not good enough. I'm not I'm just I I'm not any good at it. So then when I'm out there, limping around throw the ball away and playing I ground ball. It was a runner on first, I go to second to try to get the lead runner, of course. But throw the ball into the outfield dragging because of this quad. And I just at that point, I was I was so. Was so disgusted with myself ruin your weekend. No, no, no, no. It didn't it didn't. Because I said, I can't. I mean listen. I had my, my little pity party for myself because I was like, I can't believe this is happening. I should be healthy. Thirty seven years old. I should they should be able to deal with. I mean just that's why I'm, I'm so inspired by the wounded warriors team because they don't think about any of that stuff in here. I am the next day complaining about it. Feel like an eighty well in fairness to games in two days. After night. No, I'm serious. Your body's not used to it. It's one thing, the play once and the play twelve hours later, I know actually wasn't being that was being serious. Yeah. I mean I just I think it's the whole beating myself up thing is that thing I was I was really doing because I'm look like even seeing these highlights now guys. No excuses, and then me out. But you know, I still played boomer. Did appreciate the fact that I that I got it out like you're gutting it out? Did you win Saturday? No. We lost. We lost. It was it wasn't Barrasso score. Nine two four. That's so bad nineteen to Ford embarrassing. Yeah. They're showing CBS Greg Ronaldson is just incredible. They'll show it at some point Greg did an interview with off at the end we interviewed him. And CBS sports our cats if they'll show today or tomorrow, but, but he is. You heard him on the air. If you're listening that they he is so great on the air. He is. So he's like the perfect ambassador for that team. So it was really, it was interesting about him was I mean, he talked about his dark times to, you know, he wasn't just like, oh well, I had a choice, and I took the took the positive I e talked about Dana months of struggling after his accident. Why think too for most people, I would think you've got to really find something that you're passionate about that. You're interested about to kinda look forward to and I'm not saying softball is it for them? Maybe it is. Maybe it's not. But I think in a. As a small example, at least something like that, when you put the games on the calendar. I'm sure there's a lot of depression. We're not stupid. We see what they go through. But at least if they have something to look forward to anything for most people in life if you just got to float through life. It's just like, but if you have something right? You would think that there's something that you I don't know. You wanna be at you wanna be a part of and for them, they're part of a team and you could tell they get along, they have fun together. They play a lot together. So it was it really was. It was something to sing so that a raffle with baskets that were out there for certain things. So, you know, my, my whole family came, so, my, my dad comes my mom comes might my wife is there. So my dad, I see him, he wants to contribute to the to the cause, and the wounded warrior fund, and he goes over, and I see him putting a thing in a basket to win a basket because you have to go and you have to do that. So then at the end I hit one the basket, you know the raffle tonight's. So then he brings it over to me at the end of the game. I said, well, what, what? Did you win? He goes, I didn't realize what I was putting it in, but my ticket into and I won a tattoo. Parlor, very cool. Very cool. He's not going to be he's not gonna get to know. You have get another one. No, I'm not gonna get another pet. You have one, and then I was talking to your dad about this. He said, why wouldn't know what to get I go? What about a boomer and GIO logo? I think he's thinking about it. No way. Seventies never touch. Buring geo tattoo saying that if he hasn't willingly gotten a tattoo, and his life in the first seventy years, he's been on the planet. He's not gonna make a left turn at one, one before the so, so we tried to give it to Matt Martin because we figured, hey, one of your teammates has to be a tattoo guy. Right. One of your teammates gift it to one of them. Right. And then so he looks deeper into this basket. He pulls out the gift certificate goes to be fair. I don't know how good of a tattoo, you're going to get for thirty dollars is the kids. Is that not what they go for? I don't know. It's, it's I guess it's hundreds, yeah. Sure. The one Bob Dwyer has that's wrapped around. His stomach is probably one hundred hundreds of dollars. But I just generic tattoo to, to, to, to just generic to, to, to boomer and GIO logo. You think that's more than thirty or four percent? Yeah, it's definitely won't know. Yes. So I don't know. Hundreds, hundreds. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. I don't know who the hell we're going to how much does it cost? Millions of Alexis going offer. Thousands of them right now. I don't like about these charity, games, everything. Just tell me if you feel pressure this, when they do a fifty fifty. Yeah. At any charitable event like fifty fifty fifty fifty. If you win. They gotta give the money back that so much pressure to give them give the your winnings to donate. Yeah. Well, I don't know. But just making a donation yet. I don't think it's a impression. Do it. I just that he gets past the pressure. You just know going in. That's what was happening going in if you do a fifty fifty you're giving the your winnings. Well, how about I seed that striped bass fishing tournament, which was for a charity the hospice care network? So the winters would get thousands of dollars for the fish that they caught. But I had to basically tell them. Hey, some of the money that you give who'd be nice if he gave to the charity. So I up there with the microphone. This is the reason why we're here, just remember that we're doing it for the kids. And so I felt like that. I was putting pressure on them because also when you go up there and your hands buddy, envelope with two thousand dollars in it for the fishing tournament. You'd think you'd have to peel off a couple of hundred charity. Right. Thank yes. I would think so. Yeah. Average artists, forty two eighty dollars for a small tattoo to tattoo a form sleep three grand experience are popular artists eighty dollars. Yes. But we're talking about average, I would think, so you're out verge give it a three inch tattoo three to seven. I mean that's nothing. Right. If he if he got a tattoo, my dad tattooed it'd be the funniest thing in the world. Shift. So I think very good idea the boomer and GIO logo because even if boomer retired a few years, no matter what happens still as part of your this is part of your life. Yeah. I'm just he's not a tattoo guy geo Jones GIO and chill stats. Fun. We did have a logo. I'm sure you did. We did have a logo. I like the I bet you, your dad could get the tattoo for fifty bucks, boomer and geo. You'd have to pay twenty whatever. The tip was that really. It's art. But it's not like drawing a picture. It's letters. And whatever where's he going to get it, though? That's the gift certificate. No, I'm saying towards his body. Whereas you gotta get it shoulder shoulder like I've got my Viking statue. Yeah. You'll it's crazy. I don't even sometimes I forget what arm. It's on lie derail. Yeah. Like on Friday night. So I was talking about the Vikings tattoo that I've regrettably have. And I was talking to, to Matt about it Matt Morton. And he goes, oh, let me see. I pulled up the wrong arm. That's how much I forget that. It's a part of me. I said, oh, it's over here. Sorry, it's my bed. I got something's gotta happen. Always a good place for you dead, the forum then. He's shown. No. How about oh, you know where popular places now side of the neck, neck tattoo? Gotta be nuts. Yeah. I mean, it's got me, you'll do the tramp stamp. No, no, let's not do that. Nobody will see unless he's going in the poor. I do like the tattoo. I'm not never gotten one. I don't anticipate ever getting one. But you never know. I do like though the tattoo on the back of the neck. I do. I think it looks cool you would get a tattoo bag. You said I don't ever N -ticipant getting to like the look. And I don't mean like a bird. I mean like a cool logo. I like the idea to on the back of the neck do I think it looks cool. I can't see you. It's kind of like out of sight. But there when you turn around. Okay. I think that's cool. I gotta get this thing removed or turned into something. But I hear it hurts like a bitch to get a tattoo remove I y you're gonna get it removed 'cause I don't want the Viking logo on my arm issue thought of that fifteen years ago when you did. It was more than that it was actually it's going to be twenty years nineteen years ago. So do you think Greg at seventy one seventy two is going to look at that. That I do a grid thirty seven. Greg. It's thirty five. Did you so like Al when he buys buys anything he analyzes looks into it? Contemplates buys regrets. What point did you start regretting? It wasn't right after you walk out now. I mean it used to I was so proud of my phantom at that point, like I used to for whatever reason, want to challenge, everybody who a bigger fan wasn't I had a whole like resume stuff. It's like I would fly to main Kato for training camp. I this this this this game. And this was the clincher boom bigger fan than you. I've got. And this is what I was saying at eighteen nineteen twenty years old. So I think probably I don't know like twenty-five I said enough, it really took. So it's been about twelve years that I now wish I didn't have the it's just. Still. It's like you know it's a child's thing I get it. But at eighteen I thought I'm never not going to care about the Vikings more than anything else in my life. Right. Because that's what I thought I was like, I'm just going to be the Vikings fan in the world. Time another place for it. But I guess interest, analyzed purchase regret. That's l want to take one quick one before the break issue. Stephen West, Islip, basely. What's up? Oh man. So, right. Last night, we had a fundraiser in west of break. Sixteen year old girl who needs a kidney transplant. They have a fifty fifty as part of the raffles stuff, and the winning was five hundred thousand dollars for the fifty fifty you get five hundred read out the numbers. Everybody's got a lot of numbers by wife goes. We want we want we go. She goes but put it back, give it back to the charity, like, oh, big round of applause places back. Big round of applaud, you got that one, a wonderful thing to do about fifteen minutes later, one of the moms comes over goes, I think you got it wrong I actually won the fifty fifty. We like my white reversal after numbers in her head. She goes, you're right. Let's tell them this woman going to do now. Say no take. Seriously? Right. Didn't matter at that point. Why haven't pulled the number? That's, that's a no win situation. Yeah. You don't even pull the numbers just making a donation enough of this. Right. But like. Smells like a curb your enthusiasm episode rightly Larry wins it because he as like something to his car or whatever, and he needs the money, and he's pro for whatever reason where he has to pay a debt off and that everybody booing them leaves with the fifty fifty money, instead of the children, right? Yeah, man. I just love how started that stories. You know what I hate about these charity games? Only you could that your entry point into a conversation. All right. Boomer and geo on the fan. CBS sports network. Hey devils fans this Saturday is devils day and investors Bank brick branch PK, sue ban. Yes. That move. The boomers told us what happened and it happened over the weekend. Jack Hughes as well. Joining us in forty minutes from now, celebrate the, by the way, Jack use the same age right now as I was when I got that Vikings that maybe he's going to get a devils. Give him the coupon. Seriously? Pete's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti boomer and geo. On the fan across country on CBS sports network that are game on Friday night, met a couple of frequent callers. Eric in wrong Concha rob from lake success. Bob and Smith down. And Eric is on the line right now. What's happening? Eric. Good morning. Hey guys. How're you doing? Good man. We got force today. I just wanna say the pleasure meeting. You guys the other day, you know, the, you know, it's always always interesting. You know, putting the faces the voices and everything although you guys are on TV so it's easy. Pledge eric. And by the way, it's the same thing with us. When I see a frequent caller, I have in my mind what you guys look like. And then to see you now at least I have that, that visual that is correct kind of scare it. No, no, no. I actually had youngest it right? It's the exact opposite. I thought you looked much different in a worse way than you, actually look. I don't know if that's a complimentary. But I'm gonna say you gotta so right. That was such a inspiring game to watch on all levels. I mean I couldn't believe you know, the things I was seeing on there. It's just it's, it's a real tribute to everybody, you know that that was there. You know. So I gotta say I mean I'm hoping you guys having more games out. You know my way which you know that's possibility down the road. But yeah, that was a that was a pleasurable experience. So thank throw preciado it, and thanks for being there and introducing yourself and he came up to me. I know he's a big vendors fan. He had his adventures t shirt on. He said, hey, why, and I knew right away that Derek and Ronkonkoma. That's my guy. I know all about him from listening to his overnight calls to make Eric happy and eight-game Long Island package. Fine with me bad for you. What's coach to Bob and Babylon's going on? Hey, bob. Yeah. Listen. I tell you exactly what to do with your tattoo. All right. Flying. Nice honest, you know, little homework. Okay. And get a cover up funny guy that I can do it. Nice. 'cause a nice little portrait of I don't know how big it, that's always likes poetry is or your daughter's name, and some flowers in there and everything, and you'll pay mob. And listen. That's a good idea. If I knew that was possible. But to turn a Viking head into my daughter's is going to be very difficult. You know, gun, I've got Ragnar on my arm and determine that into a baby's face is going to be extremely difficult. I would agree. So I mean, I don't know how they do it unless they can cover it with a certain ink and then start over. Right from it, as opposed to the whole racing, like that which is there. Daddy. Why do I have a big blond moustache? That's well, when your father was young was an idiot David Riverdale. It's going on. David. Morning guys. I had a story about a fifty fifty one about five years ago. It was like four hundred fifty bucks the person that I am. I had no thoughts about giving any of it back to the charity. Then the next day, literally, the next day getting off that she w getting onto the cross Bronx cuts be on. I store of into the other lane to avoid him rear end this woman, and I negotiated to give her four hundred fifty bucks just to go, like keep that of insurance. So David karma, I broke even on this fifty unbelievable. Perfect. But yeah, that is what goes around comes in deal. Right. It's your four fifty remove right along. All right, moving, right. Along is ceelo's catchphrase ever going to get attack. It would probably be that somewhere. Maybe on his in his oblique area of you're on the side moving leaks anymore. Certainly can see your feel them better. He's got update. Fours. What's going on ceelo? Brought to you by the Reagan. Tina auto group see the redesigned, twenty twenty Range Rover evoque at Land Rover Edison and Land Rover. Marv are well, Micky Calloway's is he had his most trusted reliever on the mound with the lead couple pitches away from getting him. Six outs and handing the ball off to closer Edwin as with the chance to take three or four from the cubs to count, the how the your bias in the eighth set Lugo serves up, the go ahead and eventual game winning three run home. We had the got it at the home road to. Well, we executed to really good pitches to them and then we just hung slider. Their lugos is the eyes of many others. He was struggling neva's best stuff on the. Day. Didn't execute the to pitch to buy extra this letter, the plate now kind of got under in backed up and didn't really break very much said retinas both path didn't feel. It's good stuff for any of the outing trying to pinpoint wise comes humid, but I mean, it was, you know that's not an excuse at all. You know. You know, I was. I don't know. I just wouldn't execute pitches. Those kind of a little out front end up a five three loss for the Mets four games split in Chicago. But it was the repeated questioning of Calloway's bullpen management that led to an ugly incident postgame done with his media session. He was walking through the clubhouse, when Newsday's Tim Healy said him see tomorrow, Calloway responded by telling Healy, not to be a smart ass before walking away into another room, fellow reporter, many hold of the record picks up the story from that comes back and Tim there. And they start talking about what Tim said now Tim is trying to explain to them, like I didn't mean anything I'm just saying the seat of our Mickey was not having any of any starts cursing him out, as Mets PR to remove Healy from the clubhouse this has happened. I say the room by saying, get his mother bleeper. Right. It wasn't like politely saying, can you get this guy drink? Right. There was more cursing, and all the while Jason Vargas is apparently staring Haley down from his locker for about forty five seconds. Healy takes notice Vargas, if there's a problem or some. Thing he wants to say August just loft that he screaming at him and then basically challenged him to a fight and then says to him the the line, which everybody knows I'll knock you. The belief out, bro. Then tells me something else had to have happened because why would Vargas who didn't pitch? Why is he going after this kid because he saw how angry Mickey was at him? And then he wanted to defend his manager, he didn't know maybe didn't know all the details about why he was upset. So now, I don't know the ins and outs of Wrigley field. I would think, and I'm gonna be wrong. I don't know. Where did Mickey do this from his press conference? Does it wasn't? He was certainly wasn't that a podium or anything like that. It seemed like the clubhouse or something like that. He was visiting manager's office I did not appear. He was certainly not sitting down. Standing up. It looked like maybe just again outside of a room around, I've been just watching from afar. But that's the, the Mickey's ended then the media went into the clubhouse to go and get ready to speak to the team at their, their lockers. And Mickey was walking through the clubhouse so Vargas suicide of the straight, you're telling me the Vargas thing, actually happened before the Callaway thing. No answer Maki had his his post game which you said you listen to the fire and a half minutes, or whatever it ends fright. They go in than than the media goes into the clubhouse. That's what I'm saying. And that's when Vargas goes after came in the media's I guess, maybe standing in the middle of the clubhouse, maybe they're waiting to speak to a certain player, and I guess Mickey walked across the room presumably, maybe to go back to the manager's office. And that's when Healy apparently said see tomorrow got it Calloway responded. Don't be smart. Then he walked away, went to some other room came back out a couple of minutes later, and then there was another conversation where Healy was trying to say, listen, I didn't mean anything by. It. And then Mickey got upset that was the, you know the mother effort and that was happening in the middle of the clubhouse, ARGUS was watching watching from his locker getting dressed, he staring down hilly, and then Healey's turns Vargas, you guys on the say, so I'm understood the whole time I read this thing I thought it was outside of the locker room and then it kind of found its way in with keys Scott elderly was not in the middle of the clubhouse outside the hallway or in whatever manages office. There is like we said it's tight confines, there at an old an old ballpark, so ugly situation, a matter, how you slice it up, e hauled, by the way of Louis Rubinsohn here on the fan last night, Mets of since the polish is to Healy, publicly and privately says he got a call from Jeff wilpon. So there is some drama as the Mets head to Philadelphia for three game series of with the Phillies lost in the shuffle. It another no decision for Jacob degrom seven straight start in which he's allowed to earned runs or less. He was lifted after six innings in ninety seven pitches. Find like this thing. I foot where hits the mound and every once in a while, just clips at their own way. But everything else feels fine. Callous says he later called it also. We haven't mentioned this. I haven't bad job. Pete Alonzo his twenty-seventh Homer. Breaking strawberries franchise record for home runs by a rookie, obviously, he gets it done before the all-star break, even arrives Brodie van wagon is expected to beat the media in Philadelphia. At some point today before the Mets begin a three-game series with the Phillies Stephen Matt's. Zach eflin the starters 705 coverage on WCBS eight eighty fills dealing with their own issues seven straight losses. They phone six and a half back in the first place. Braves swept by the Marlins over the weekend at home manager, Gabe Kappler, of course, intense not one thing in particular. Sometimes it's lack of execution. Sometimes it's lack of perfect sequencing. Sometimes the hitter are s and its combination of all those things right now. And to get better, I'll give you one more. He doesn't wanna hear about potential staff a roster changes based on one bed. We'd do this group as a unit when we win we. Celebrate the guys who did really good work when we lose we go back to work on the guys that need some help. We don't quit on anybody ever ever he was. I don't know who he was staring at, but maybe whoever the questions news. Right. It was very intensive podium, seven hundred yesterday matches worse start of the year. The ten runs right. That was in Philly wasn't. It wasn't good. Okay. Okay. That should be fun time. There you go. Those the glass half full approach at the stadium. Seventy third old timers day celebration went great as did Mary of Rivera's first appearance. He did a little bit of everything could inside the park home run in his lone Sweeney call that he was all into it. Yes, he was some of the guys that play in that game though. Yeah. It's Homer Bush know. Bush's. Ever. I know Jerry you're debuted yesterday how how many days did he play with the Yankees season on the nine championship team? Come does. Analysis for the dodgers yet. But he missed the Yankee gold timer. Listen, you put the pinch rice on once? You're an old. Hey listen, guys, they bring back. You know, Jason Grimsley was there yesterday. Not kidding. He through a nasty to seamer to strike out David Wells like he wasn't just loving it in there. He started on, like David Wells ranted into, like wells went up thinking, I am a pitcher takes him hacks, and he turned, he was mad you could tell he was he was ticked off embarrassed. A little little intense on that one. Anyway, they cleared the field for the real game. And the Astros made use of the traditional Homer, wound, one of his Lana. Right. If it's fair. It's gun. Is there it's gone second day to that kid of swing what? You're done. Alvarez. He is big big big big time hits. John, sterling here on the fan of one. Jay hap- Jose altuve. Eight took him deep leading off the game entirely white blew it open with a grand slam in the fourth nine nothing Astros Lee turned into a nine four victories. They stepped their seven-game skid hap- tag for eight runs on eleven hits over four pluses, areas up to five and a quarter almost ready allow twenty home runs and half a season. No panic though. I think tendencies, you know, maybe they could to change something radically. But I don't think that's the case. I think it's stay the course approach for Aaron judge over ten four strikeouts. Since returning from the I L, here's an unconcerned Aaron judge is about the last guy worry about, you know, it's, it's truly a matter of time when, when he locks it in real good. You know, it's gonna be on base and power itself assignment against Justin Verlander. He was solid DJ three run Homer in the fifth twenty six straight game. The Yanks have gone to do franchise record. They take three or four from Houston regular season series over with them. But maybe not the last time they'll play in two thousand nineteen obviously. Great team. And you know we we Megan cross pass, you know, playing for a lot more six in one home stand for Boone's club. They're still four and a half games up on the raise atop the AL east. They did put Cameron. Maybe on the I L strain left. Kathy's expected to miss six weeks next in the Blue Jays for three before the head off to London for the two games sip Red Sox cease about the against Aaron Sanchez in tonight's open. Pre game coverage on the fan six twenty five being an Oriole phone no to they want, how many games fifty six or something or whatever it was even that. Hi forties. They've played almost half their season, issuing a twenty two wins into worse. They're going to pride than last year. And last year at this, right? Yeah. Which is remarkable. The Marlins after we thought they were going to be abysmal of actually played new well for only six games, United Mets now g forty seven seven right there below their behind their pace but it probably right on it. Right. Because we're not at the halfway what? Let's see, I'll find this. So today's date is June twenty fourth. So hit the schedule and results thing here. Of course, every time I need this computer doesn't work because I'm live on the air. It doesn't do it, folks. We get this fixed blue. I'll get it for you. What are you looking for projections? There's all right. So I got it today's June, what again twenty-fourth they were twenty three in fifty three last year. I see what you twenty-fourth, right? But they played fewer games. All right there. Right in the ballpark. How many games do you need? How many games I'll tell you the played seventy eight so far seventy eight seventy eight games last year twenty three and fifty five. Okay. So they were there behind pace this year. They're worse, how you could be worse. They're worse. Damn forty seven wins disgrace quick have right now. The twins fifty wins. Quickly Jez review on the travelers championship up in Connecticut.

I think it's all really exciting and I mean not as possible without hockey. So I mean, that's where it all starts from. I think this is all really exciting. Now. When you're eighteen years old, you don't realize that you're eighteen years old. This is the advice I can give you because you're like eighteen accomplished. All this look, I'm the number one overall pick. And you this all, you know. But when I in Jerry, and I look at you were like, well, you got this. You got a bunch of people following you around going everywhere. We got the jersey here on TV there's going to be pressure. People are already talking about a rivalry between you and Campo Cocco. All this happens. Boom, you're right there. But you seem like this is it, this is fine. I'm good. Did you learn to deal with these things? Where where does that come from that calmness? Well, I think for me, I'm kinda living a dream so far. I mean this is. I mean, what else do you want you drafted by any team, or you're kind of living the good life? So I mean for me. It's all awesome. I think I'm a confident can trying to enjoy this and enjoy every moment with you. Don't just get drafted the number one pick. And I know you're a hockey family from what I read like even your mom played right? And your dad your brothers in the league or at least was drafted your younger brother plays. Well how about growing up in a family like that? How did they split the kids, what games you're going to, you guys must been all over the place? He goes insane. I mean, thankfully, we had a lot of lot of other families. Help us out for a lot of years, especially with my dad coaching pro hockey. So he was he was on the road a lot, too. So I mean, I'm mom and dad always run us around spots. Spy me, I can remember them bringing my little brother game pretending like they're at the game, and they weren't even there. I mean just telling them because they're so busy with us. I mean, there are unbelievable grownup oppose who's always really busy. Always a lot of fun to, to have the three of us going, how many games a year, would you say you played, you know, I don't mean last year. I mean when you're in the middle of the youth, hockey and your brother's still playing youth hockey were you guys playing fifty sixty games a year. More or less more than that. I mean, more than eighty probably we're really young like twelve thirteen play more than more than five terminates probably ninety. And then on top of that spring hockey, I can remember my dad. He was coaching all three of us and spring hockey's. I mean he he coach twenty one twenty one games and probably three or four days, just with the three of us. So we were always really busy talking to Jackie is on the fans BS sports network. The number one overall pick in the NHL draft to the New Jersey Devils. Now, already people are saying rivalry between you cap. Oh, Cocco, obviously, you've got the devils and the Rangers, and it's sort of perfect one, too. I mean, do you look at it as a rivalry or is that something that other people are sort of drumming up? I mean obviously, it's really unique to have the first and second pick in the same area. If the devils and him with the ranger, so I think that's a pretty unique in itself. But I mean for me. I don't think it's much over ivory. Obviously, the media will make it out to being. I'm sure over the next couple of years, it'll intensified a little bit with the devils and Rangers. Trying to heat up really teams here. So I mean, that would be a lot of fun of a Tele ranger rivalry was kind of heat it up again. It will be your first game. It's not gonna take you long to realize you've gotta rivalry because of the one thing you'll learn about first of all the garden is in incredible place to play. And you'll see that the minute you skate in that place for the first time, but the rock is tremendous to great building for hockey. I love going. There we go. We try to go to six seventy games a year and you get fans from everywhere when the Rangers come in, it's the screaming the yelling you'll notice from the moment you're on the ice. So you might be a tell yourself, there's no rivalry just me the whole time you play them. You'll realize you're right in the middle of it. It's pretty cool. It really it's a great area to play hockey. And especially with the islanders they're on the up now. So you should have a lot of fun. Are there any guys in the devils that, you know, or you walk into this blind? I know I know Taylor hall, little bit and train with them. I know course Tyner from world championships. The men's he was he was awesome with me, and then I know Mike, McLeod a little bit who's been up and down right off spec. So I know those ties Smith the first round pick from lash also. I know it's a, a really exciting group and it's team that's right on right on the break. I think PK sue ban, right? Yeah. Exciting. That's pretty neat right? Reading about you is that you're looked upon as a leader when you're on the ice, very vocal. And you try to take take charge as an eighteen year old can you do that? I think in certain scenarios, for sure. But I mean, I'm I'm going to be eighteen year old wanna step on anyone's toes. But I mean, I'm confident kid. I wanna I wanna be a kid that was kind of drives the bus doesn't just to be a passenger expecting. All they're gonna do something I want to be qigong team like that. And I think that's, that's what makes me go to him. I want wanna be a full hands on deck and ready to go talking to Jackie is on the fan. CBS sports network. Would you wanna be when you were growing up? What was the hockey player that was the person that you were emulating? Is that guy? Still in the league, right? Yeah. Yeah. I mean you go through phases. But the guy that was pretty constant was Patty Cain. Yeah. That's a, that's a guy wanted to play like a means. So fun to watch really exciting player. So I mean, have you had have you had a chance to meet him yet. Yeah. Yeah. I got an own pretty well actually from the men's worlds. Yeah. So he was awesome. With me took me out to enter great saps. I'm in the locker room. So he's a really, really good guy. How do you balance like the I'm one of these guys. But I'm also still on my way up to one of those. Like you have to think about like, all right? My goal is to be Patrick Kane, and I wanna be that. And a lot of people think I can be that, but I'm not there yet. So I have to act accordingly. That's got to be a little bit of a tough balance fee with expectations on you. I think the drafts is a really good stepping stone. I mean, it's something my whole life. I've worked up to I mean it comes and goes now it's back to the work. I got to have a really good summer sewing, how really good year next year. I mean obviously going first overall crepe, but it doesn't buy you anything, it doesn't guarantee you anything. So there's going to be a lot of work left to do. And I'm really excited for the challenge. Did you know the devils, we're taking you or did you think a high been them or New York? I mean. I was I was confident that it'd be the devils, but the management tip their hand at all. So we are going in blind own. When I find found out, it was really exciting. It was bro door to call your name, right. Yeah. Yeah. So do you do you get a call just prior to that, or when he goes up to the podium in calls your name? That's the first time you hear. No, that's the first time. I mean my agent was trying to figure something out. See see what was going on. But I think like a lot of people we hadn't ideas either me or Kako. And I'm once they called my name, I was just. I was so happy and so, so pumped up to be a devil. That's cool. I'm probably relieved that it's over to kind of move onto the next phase, which you knew was coming. Anyway. Yeah. I think so. Many emotions fall into that moment. You just you're so fired up. And once you hear name called it's a. You're, you're just really excited to go to the organization. Is it? It's interesting because I on Williamson went number one last week to the pellets, everybody, there brother grandmother, dead people knew he was going to be number one of the pelicans, you had an idea that you might go. One is it? I guess the question I wonder is he's he was over over one with a motion. Is that real? I mean, because, you know you're going to be the one or the two pick, right? Yeah. I think it's I think his was, so, genuine. I think it was awesome, awesome for the support because it kinda shows how you work your whole life for that moment. And I got like that he knows. It's coming. You still see them ocean out of it. So I mean for me, personally, I knew as I know is going to be either doubles the Rangers. And I mean still just a such a Joyce moment. And I mean you dream your whole life. You can't put it into words. It happens talking, Jack Hughes on the fan CBS sports, that were just got a very cool note. So Jack's grandfather was a new York Fire Department battalion chief. So you've got some New York roots in the family gets he loves it. He's, he's been falling for a lot of years now. So he's really excited them with the devils. Now, I know you talk about your, your confidence, and how you were sort of this. Everything is part of this deal and you're prepared for it. Is there anything that you're nervous about when you start this journey? Is there one thing you think about like, man, I just need to? That's the one thing I'm a little bit concerned about. No. I mean, I'm not a blitz to the fact that I'm going to be playing in the NHL next German. It's the it's the best league in the world for a reason. So I know it's going to happen. I know it's going to be a challenge. I know it's going to be a little difficult, but I'm really excited for that. And I'm the competitive part of me is really pumped up to play in the NHL. You obviously have excelled at every level you've played it. How much harder do you expect it to be, how much of an adjustment period? You think you need to give yourself? Yeah. It's, it's the best league in the world with the best players in the world. I think I got a little bit of a taste for the men's worlds, but on, I mean, the NHL hold different animals. So I I'm really excited, I one of big summer so I can kind of come in there and contribute right off the bat when you win your first MVP don't get too big for us. All right. We're going to have to have you on the show. All right. Sounds good. Guys watching him. Thank you Jack use of the New Jersey Devils the number one overall pick best of luck. Jack the morning show with boomer. Maura Sayas in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo. From the investors Bank. Studio is boomer and geo on the fan across the country on CBS sports network. Don't forget, no, the pair, Yankee tickets this hour before ten o'clock. We're giving away every hour today. The fan field level tickets, the Yankees and the Orioles early is incredible. When you talk to an eighteen year old kid who's going to be a superstar in the NHL and eases, calm, cool, and collected his Jack uses how about this, like legitimately LSD and myself like we could all his grandfather, no should we could. How do you figure? There's no way eighteen. All right. You have to be very young, but it's not crazy. Yet is Eddie is the closest how old are you now Eddie fifty to fifty two so eighteen thirty Mason logically, fiftieth, like it's, it's possible but it's a little little bit of I'd say it wasn't a reach. I'm just saying that's how much younger he is than maybe not me. But Eddie for sure. Yeah. No. Like I said, it's as ING nineteen years for me. Right. That's an I'm the youngest in two thousand one. He'd better be lightning-quick is he is not big no supposedly. He's a hell of a skater all the things. I was reading about him that he will make an impact quickly because he's just he's elusiveness and his skating. Ability is just second just thinking of somebody light hitting him. Sure. Sure. Or kid is much bigger. Right. Much bigger. By the way, it is Kako. It's gotta be khaki. He said, Kengo everybody's saying capital Kako. Yeah. It's Capela Kako does not, not. It's not Cocco. So boomer was wrong. This whole time the Cocco right, exactly. This whole time we were going Cocco, double entendre all day long, but he got his guy in the end. So, so now we're happy. Right. Actually got the jersey made up before the pig cap, isn't it? I thought that was interesting that he had zero notion that they were taking them. Well, you believe that? Nor did sports minutes before the draft saying, Jackie is two doubles. But the fact that he said they never tipped their hand ever. I'm not believe, but by the way, if you look back on the devils official Twitter account, they were tweeting out, Jackie videos weeks before they really is the second that Kako the nothing on one. I don't think I didn't see anything I could be wrong, but I saw Jack use stuff like him doing. Whatever. Jack us. Look at what Jackie did something, of course and played like the fact that they, they don't want everybody to know what's going on. They want a little bit intrigue me. No, everybody knows. So I'm sure he was told, hey, if anybody asks, you, you didn't know because we don't wanna ruin the draft. Right. I guess. Yeah. But he's got a he's going to really fun year ahead of them. That's for sure. If I if I were him I'd be scared to death. That's why I'm just I don't have the same like mentality as a professional athlete. I would I asked him. What are you nervous has got to be nervous about? I don't seem like it. He's not not nervous about anything. My guess is he's the he's been the best at every level play. So he's used to it and know it's the NHL but if you go from youth hockey too high school hockey to this developmental league hockey's world championship teams. I mean he's playing with great players. Be still the best one out there. You know what me and you can't relate to that? You might have been a decent offense. Lineman in highschool. Probably the best lineman house. Bet he's been the bad. He's been the best at every level that he's played. So that is something else. By the way. Do we hear from Brad Heller? Did you reach out to the great? Brad Heller did and did not hear back from Heller Lewis. I can't even book Brad Miller on this show is ridiculous. No. If you have no idea Brad Heller is Brad Heller is the guy who fills in for Coleman now on the Mets radio network, which is the WCBS eighty Mets radio network. That's right. And Brad Heller was out doing the duties that we need to do on the air. We thought maybe he had been there in the clubhouse when this fight went down because, hey, we'll go to our guy. Right. We have gone even sure if he was in Chicago. He wasn't Chicago know, he was in Chicago, that I know for a fact and he tweeted a picture out what ceelo, ceelo you can't come in, and then go out again. What the hell was that you walked in the studio. He waved could've just told how he was one hundred percent there because he sent us. We have audio files from him, then he said he was definitely there. But would he have been did he have other lives in no resent the clubhouse? All right. So he was there. He wasn't if he wasn't. He's getting all this Heller. No. I feel like they're certain guys that one controversy arises. They don't want any part of it. And yeah, they hide they think he's I'd or he could be in flight to fill. It wasn't traveled. That's right now, they had to he'd be he was plus he'd probably get that in-flight texting thing where he could at least text me back. He probably would have you know what he's gonna say. I was asleep. I'm sorry. I got the way definitely I will get the ten a one. Oh, sorry. Just saw this monument. Yeah. You know what I'm gonna text the word team a little bit now. I'm gonna call him right now home until you got that other guy to call unless week, Larry. There's a problem with teams working in the media like this is weird. Yeah. No here. Yeah. We'll see if you actually picks up. Because this way at least wake up in the hotel. Assuming he's in and his phone's off because it didn't go right voicemail. So now we know he's ducking us, if he doesn't pick out onto you. Yes, it was a bad one, or he doesn't respect me as a producer. Wow. Totally blown off by Brad Heller. He's staring at that GIO bringing do. I don't. Oh, jeez. Not there. Here's what could have happened. Eddie might be back on for the Phillies. Here is. So Brad may have come home yesterday. And he may just be catching up on sleep right now with the team Clarke's ducking. Hey. Yeah. I think he's that guy never sleep. I mean his his hours are insane. So he gets a chance to catch up. You just said he'd never sleeps. So he's probably not sleeping now would be the chance to do it if he's no longer on the trot. Tell you what this is. And I'm going to speak for Brad here. I think that Brad just got this gig. It's been portent thing for him. He's doing a great job doing it and he wants. No part of this controversy that's going to put him in a tough spot with the rightsholder right agreed. So same reason Tim Hillary doesn't wanna come on the show. Yeah, the Tim Healy thing, though. It's more of a journalistic. I'm not gonna make it about me thing. You know. They like that the beat right? Don't wanna make the story about me, right? Defer anti Al. Deferred to the David Lennon story and his newspaper. Sorry on that I respect kidding aside. Our would send out an Email to all radio stations to talk available. Out and try to set up a satellite tour. Here's my Skype account. I mean with stuff that would happen here, though. Like, what you would you wouldn't go on another radio? Here, though the only time people wanna talk to you is what it's kind of you could get in trouble for talking Neil best though, I guess, but I would have to get permission. I couldn't just ran off stuff to kneel, Ben. If you if Neil best was interviewing you about a show about the show and you guys got into it a little bit. No one's coming to you, like no one's going to Calloway right now. They'd be going to kneel right? Right. He wouldn't talk why not now. Now, I think they would they would act they would go to to, I think. Right. But we can't get to Mickey just like I'm trying to make it we wouldn't be the Al right? Right. Right. The person in question. We're trying to get his Tim Healy who's the writer in this case would be Neil bright. I got you now and we're getting blown off by everybody. Correct. Can't get it actually score the score in Chicago, which is our sister stations. In Chicago, had Mickey intimidating. They asked me to come on to talk Yankees White Sox. When did this this is like last week? So I'm like this is not what they wanna talk to me about. Right. So of course when I got on there it's all about the radio station. The whole interviews radio station would care out there about WFAN. It's crazy. I don't know what it is New Yorkers. They just I think they play a lot of the mic clips on their show. And then then they played me. I don't know some the Mike with the horse thing member that whole deal. So they played that and they got into it, it was like a talking point. And they said, well, what do you think what do you think about this being a talking point on afternoons in Chicago? It's crazy. And then at the end they wanted to know about Louis Sesa not a single question about the Yang for real, not a single question. So they lied to you is what you're saying. Yeah. One of the hosts had reached out to me right before the interview and said, listen, I just wanna be up front with you. We care about the Yankees now. Now that you've committed to coming on the air. Here's we'll talk exactly which appreciate respect. I appreciate they were very very, very complimentary. Big fans of the show. We watch on CBS sports network. We love it all that stuff. But like w e obsessed with all the stuff that happens here too. I don't know what it is like they're more interested in than we are. Thank God keeps us in business. I guess, so I guess not stop with the impersonation enough already got by the way, I have to thank him again. I did once after thank him again, that was very, very nice as much as he dislikes us. And some people say, for good reason he did put out several times on the air that are wounded warrior saw. That hell has a bunch of fans said, they'd heard, Mike dude, and that parking lot was full. Yeah. One hundred percent it helped because several people came up said, I was on my way to the other field. I had the fan on Mike said I turned around went to this field. So I have to thank you for that. Yeah. It was very very good. And one of the thing on that just quickly while we're mentioning it. The guys that got the field. Ready fingle? I send you the picture of where we were supposed to be at noon. And I told you there's no way we're playing here and it turned out, we weren't and even by four o'clock you could tell we play there. I could not believe how dry they got field time rain we had. All they have a tarp on that field know that they have a drain these. They spread the speedy dry down. They kept kept dragging it to air it out. And at the end they had it perfect. It was and even the outfield right? Yeah. You're right. They did a great job on that field for us. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo fan. Jio on the pants EVS sports network. Brad Heller was the guy working for us in the clubhouse yesterday. You can't even tracked a guy down currently we've been ruining little family trips for big celebrity now. He's got a lot of things to do. You know, I guess bunches family foot the meet him in Chicago a couple of days. All that's what I hear my has been time in Chicago and we can't even get older ago. Eddie seeming tile the in Philadelphia to cover the, the mess. That is the Mets now. Philadelphia really. Glad it miss one. He's probably is just see him laughing. His ass off reading all these stories about this. You know. Oh man. Yeah. I, I called them. I texted. Oh mckay. We can't get an answer. He's ignoring you. He definitely. Now you agree. He's definitely he wants no part of this. He wants. He doesn't wanna come close to this story because what does he gained out of it? Seriously? There's no right McCain. We're scream ward. There's no reward other than being famous for being on the spoken, but a big risk. Yeah, Brad loves show tunes. Maybe we can have come out in sing some show tunes. He's a big musical guy. Yes. Loves music school. Yeah. So that's is maybe they're gonna see a musical tonight in Chicago, Chicago. All right. Ceelo is here. He's a guy always answers are calls. What's going on all? Yes, all the time brought to you by winters broS waste systems, creating a cleaner and greener, Long Island. To learn more, visit winters Broza dot com. And let's reset this Mets disaster for you. One more time leading the cups three to bottom of the eighth yesterday at Wrigley field to on one out and Seth Lugo on the mound facing havi by as with an oath to count on the pitch. Breaking ball line air to write could fought back this go. The right field. Three run over for hobby, rose. WCBS eight eighty forty second and final pitch thrown by Lugo day. Especially yesterday pretty much, especially since both broadcasts were questioning lugos staying in the game before the home run, and then certainly after it. He only got four the six outs, Mickey Callaway was looking for three to lead turns into a five three loss and instead of taking three of four and Chicago with four games split fireworks. Of course, though, just beginning set off by a testy post game media gathering with the manager who was grilled about his bullpen usage. Try to squeeze two innings at Lugo on a day where he did not appear to have his Orbis reliever. We were up one run. You know, we know that when he has the opportunity to go the seventh in the eight. He's going to do it now, it might have interpret that when he says he's our best reliever. He's excluding from that conversation because he's the closer right? When he says that he actually believe logos. Lugo is his best to be saying, yeah, I didn't get, including Edwin. I thought the same thing because you can't argue it agree. I'm just trying to take his Bill our best and vice far reliever no doubt about that. This was what this only the second game lead, and earn running since mid April eighteen outings, not one run. Yeah. Well it didn't go well for him yesterday. And there were plenty of I guess is about not going Edwin Diaz for an extended safe fair. We're not for five out. He would have thrown the ninth of we will get into. Maybe. But we didn't we didn't get that for was that hesitation wish. She would've said next question. Correct. Or, or no? Because he wasn't warming up. So we weren't gonna use in the eighth and ninth inning Ida close the game today. Correct. One more on that Lugo was gonna face by as either way. So, you know, and Cassoma was going to step up if he didn't get bias, but we didn't get the we didn't get by, and then really is amazing that Mickey answering the questions calmly there you know ended on just a little bit later flipping his it was like a crescendo because that was before we got to that the exchange that I play for you one more time where he did kind of snap back at a reporter at the end. And at the end though. That's what I'm saying prior to that, though, you talk about them on keeping his cool. The ones you're playing. There are sort of in the beginning. Yeah, if you go to the middle the question is he's only thrown in this is right here has you wanna hear my point was he smiles through it. Like he is really keeping his cool here. Yeah. You can play it. But when you he's, but do you sense that the smiling is kinda? Just lied. No. It seem like yes. Seemed like every Mickey like you know, I'm going to have fun with this, and I'm not going to be Jack is the no, we're not gonna use them for five outs. I know you guys keep me. But my answer is not going to change. He really didn't get annoyed until there was like a here. Let's just play. It's like three questions sequence. And by the end of it, I think the one that got him annoyed was said, are you allowed okay in from follow up where he kind of snap back, anyway, here, it is for you. These days is situation where you're willing to go five points that lately used again. No, we're not gonna use it for five outs. I know I know you guys keep on asking, but my answer is going to stay says mile. You talked about as an organizational decision that four ounces kind of the max there. That's exactly right. If you wanted to use DS for five and you'd be allowed to the game in the moment, of course. I mean, does that need to be plan? You guys read discussing the mental about using it for four versus. No. I mean just because you think so absolutely not. We have a very good plan. We know what we're doing and stick to it. That was the tart right right there now. 'cause you think so to Jerry's point though the question about would you have been allowed? So I told you that last question where he said, just because you think so that I know is mad e hall from the record. I don't recognize the voice asking him would you have been allowed to perhaps? That's Tim Healy. I don't know. Maybe that's where it was. It was set. And then as e hall end might pull a bolt said when they came on the fan last night, it was almost as, if whatever was going to be said to make afterwards. He was ready to just to give someone the business. So what you want about it. And I understand how we all think in probably the way it is. It's one thing to have an organizational theory, or plan. It's another thing to chat. I don't know that when I say it's obnoxious question I, I understand what you're saying, but it's. Almost like your, your hourly just questioning his authority and Olmos mocking the manager position. And I know we all do it because of the way it's become but to sit I he just lost a brutal game. Yeah. And you're basically saying does the GM even allow you to make decisions. But the way he prefaced it. I thought made it a legitimate question. You have talked about how the organization arrests it. So how I is that organisms decision go now put yourself in his shoes? Yeah. I got this little puke, who's probably a nice guy. I don't mean it that way. But you're saying the way these athletes, and coaches and managers probably look at us. And I'm putting myself in that sedonia, because we've asked the questions and you feel like a little puke asking them, you know, my allow who were you, right? But he also might have been annoyed by that. Because he understands that some of that perception is true. There are who get angrier. Absolute seems like wow, look at this. These guys think I've got north already, and I don't in this. And I gotta take it out on some level of self respect where you almost feel like you're being mocked right in front of your face. Even if that wasn't the intent and then he tried to get himself, fired, according to my point, and he painted the picture of what you just said that, you know, he doesn't really have say a lot of what's going on. He's being pulled in a million different directions. And that there's a there's a major distrust was the word he used between said the two different. So he was taking the front office, which I believe included Brody, and then Mickey his staff, and the players in the clubhouse there couple of God, I mean can the bullpen coach and he can the pitching coach? And then he brought in a pitching strategist. I mean it's like which, by the way could be a factor. And all this that came out as well. We wonder what the heck happened with Vargas. I don't know if you heard him speak. He was very close with Dave island. Yeah. So who knows maybe he read a story, one of these guys wrote? I mean anything's possible he worked together in Kansas City, right? A bunch of the pitchers where like not only surprised and caught off guard about the move, but didn't necessarily seem to agree with it. So there's a lot going on. With them right now. And this was just seeing this heart. It shouldn't but I mean a really losing baseball games in New York in the pressure on it to do their job to job. They'd be in a different such. It's you last week, the one day to the show, what point do we stop blaming everybody except the guys that suck on the field? They get their fair share criticism to. There's no doubt about it. I mean these guys that have been bad. I mean d has been crushed familiar has been crushing elements. Been crushed. Could. No, there is enough of that. But it's also guys that make these, I think most met fans know that Mickey Callaway can only do so much, but it's just the way handles other stuff. Like, what's the point of even having just get somebody else in there because this guy can't handle it? If that's the case, we're gonna do with them. I never read, I never agreed with that until yesterday. I really I thought it was useless to put Riggleman in there. So the rest of the season. But now he just seems like it's just seems like it's over. But don't you think what would have been different yesterday? What do you mean? What would have been? Different different what part of the game or the ghost game stuff. Because if you listen to everything they've ever said he and Jim Riggleman sit there and they decide together, what going to trust me. That was my point the entire time nothing would have been different. It's just that when you have a guy who apparently is twisting in the wind and being pulled in a million different directions and can't even be himself and his now melting down, even though he can't get any more. Maybe maybe can't get any more out of this team than anybody else. I still think it's time it's just we have said from the beginning that he seemed like he was in over his head now. Here we are again, with another embarrassing incident where he finally lost it. It just seems like it's if he's going to get fired. Eventually now I've changed my opinion on. It doesn't throw Riggleman in there. And I don't think the team's gonna get better. I just think it's like basically get putting Mickey Callaway out of his misery at this point. That's what it seems like we do this every season, the time now it's true teams have been terrible do around here. But awful haven't they I mean it's not it's not. Oss what they've given us, we had a really bad stretch of sports in New York bed. Teams really bad teams. And this is what happens with bad teams in a pressurized atmosphere. So the Mets released the apology statement, Jeff wilpon, call Tim Healy. And apparently, I don't know if he was supposed to be there to begin with. But it made it seem like forties been summoned to Philadelphia essentially tonight. So do you expect? Mickey Callaway to be managing. Tonight's Syrian opener with the Phillies. I mean, apparently from all reports Jeff is a big Mickey Callaway guy, and he would have to make a complete one eighty turn on Mickey Callaway after this incident. I don't know that he will do that. I still think finish out to the all star break. And then see what's happening in this next stretch, and they'd better play. Well in Philly, I believe when they come back home Phillies are playing lousy chance to turn it back around quickly. It'll be Stephen bats opposed by Zach F one at seven oh. Five coverage on WCBS eight. Eighty we never even got into the whole decision to maybe you guys did. But we have in here for McNeil end Conforto to both be out of the starting lineup yesterday where he says, it's matchup related against a lefty and Cole hamels yet Kono's in their McNeil's is hot as you can be. And then he double switches into the game late, and he never even gets an at that, and then they were asking about that, too. And then you had Ahmed resign before the game Calloway, and resolve your warrant on the same page about him taking some fly balls and centerfield, and maybe playing out there. They didn't have their timelines matched up. So it's. I don't know what you're writing. Halloway pre-game said we had takes shacks and flood center. We may consider him out there for versatility. They media then went to resign, and he said, well, make quickey said Saturday. Right. And made it sound like I've been out there kinda just for my own just forcing around. Take IB open to it, but he didn't agree with the timeline of how Calloway presented it to the meeting, so not a big deal. But again, it's he's presenting it one way. And then when they go to the players if you wanna presented that's way that's fine. Leave too, though. At least let the player know like, hey, here's what I said. It'd be on the same page kind of thing, we're going to transition Wilson romo's to shortstop right? Actually at the stadium J hap- had a, rough day against the Astros, Juba. It's about it. It's that is that has gone in the second dick. A home run by Jose, Al to and just like that. The Astros take a one nothing lead. Yeah. That was a bummer Stirling here on the fan, first of three long balls served up by half on the day including other whites grand slam in the fourth hap- tag for eight runs on eleven hits both matching career highs over four plus Houston built a nine nothing lead ended up with a nine four victory to snap their seven-game skid and the Yankees winning streak at eight and have given up twenty homers and basically half a season. These really struggling at home specifically. Here's Aaron Boone on his struggling left-handers fly balls can hurt you, when you make mistakes with I think, just enough mistake. I think he's been heard a little bit by some balls here that have just got now certainly say the same for opposing pitchers against the Yankee lineup. You're done Alvarez took have deep. He's got seven home runs. Sixteen RBI's in his first twelve big league games the Yanks, though, take three or four in the series. It's a six in one homes, Dan. So one loss, really not all that much to get set about Justin. Orlando got the win he did allow three run home and a DJ LeMay. You in the fifth twenty six straight game with home run for the new franchise record. They will try to match the major league record set by the two thousand two Rangers tonight when they begin three-game series with the Blue Jays cease about the Aaron Sanchez and the opener pre game coverage on the fan at six twenty five. He had old timers day Marietta. Rivera was the star, including an inside the park home run in his loan that did some work on the mound. He played a little centerfield as well said, he's still working on his speech for next month hall of fame ceremony up in Cooperstown couple of notables from Sunday outta town. First place dodgers where their third straight, walk off win of the Rockies. Rookie Will Smith had the pinch hit two out game winning three run Homer in the bottom of the ninth as LA stunned. Colorado, six to three Dhamma backs walked off. The giants three to snap a six game skid. The pirates outlasted the Padres eleven to ten with a base wash in the pot of the eleventh. There've been some wild games this year for sure we mentioned the Phillies struggles seven in a row. They've dropped swept by the Marlins a six four final in Sunday's finale raise. The as aid to the anx are four and a half up on Tampa Bay top the Blue Jays over the Red Sox, six to one.

"Why the investors Bank studio. Guber sizing, Greg Jian ATI, boomer and geo on the fan simulcast across the country on CBS sports network. Good Friday morning. Hey, no. Their summer Friday, beautiful weather. It's been the last couple of days today. Also looks great Jerry in four boomer this morning, boomer will be back on Monday morning. It's going to be plenty of NBA free agency talk then and we'll have plenty of it today as well. But I have to start as this week comes full circle with an apology of my own. So this week is bit about Mets apologies, right? How Jason Vargas should have apologized. But didn't how Mickey Calloway did apologize after being called out a second time from the media. How Brodie van wagon apologized for the way that he's team acted. Have Jeff wilpon had apologized to team Healy and the members of the media after that dust up Monday. Jerry's sat to my right, and we had a discussion about going to Edwin d as when Seth Lugo look like he didn't have it. He was up around forty pitches blows the game at windy as thrown twelve pitches in eight days. Use closers your big acquisition and Jerry said, Edwin stinks. You can't go to Edwin Diaz. And I said, yeah, I know you hasn't been good. But still, go ahead. Wendy s. Well, I have to apologize, Jerry use Edwin as he does stink. He is awful and could be part of what might end up being the worst trade in the history of the Mets, if chase ball if Jared Kalmyk turns into a really good player, this could be the worst trade in the history of the Mets or baseball as you say as yesterday, the comical, becomes even more ridiculous as that kit a three one lead. Todd Frazier home run to take the lead. They tack on with the resort infield single at first and third and one out and here comes as now if the Mets won this game, it wouldn't really mattered right because they're still completely out of it. The team isn't any good. But they would have come home on a positive note going into this nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine anniversary weekend would have been a nice little thing. They heat would have been off them for a day. Instead worst possible scenario with the worst possible guy blowing it and Brodie van wagon and once again with every time that Robertson Cano steps up to the plate. And every time had been Edwin takes the mound. He looks more and more foolish. Good morning, Jerry. How are you? I'm sorry apology accepted. Okay. They suck. So. So you know what it is? We continue to say how bad they are, and all this, and I get it that's fine. And whether it's twenty or twenty one I can't figure out what the right numbers with these blown saves if you're a member of this team if you're Todd Frazier. You come up yesterday in the midst, they can't buy a hit the only base that they have, I think was the pitcher. Right. So then they're doing nothing offensively. And think my God, they're going to be swept in a four-game series. And I love to know what the stats are in four games. Alice's every double header is usually a split. Not true. Most four game sweeps or series do not end in sweeps. Most I'd love to know how many are because the fact that they got swept this week in games that they lead every time and couldn't hold a lead is remarkable. And if you're Todd Frazier yesterday, or your anybody that was in the infield or in the Alfie Dominic Smith at first base, whatever it might be in the ninth inning. You've got to be thinking, what are we doing out here because they had nothing going for eight innings. They put up a few they get it to three one. They've got. Lead for God's sakes, and for Edwin d as to come in. I mean just gave you. Here's what I learned at least yesterday. And I'm not saying this is the case for all season. But yesterday he's got no swing emits MS pitch. You know, the Michael Francke homerun, it's an oath to pitch. How about what's even worse? Look at the Sean Rodriguez at bat that he walks them. I mean fells off he can't strike out, Sean Rigas. Lift e seven saves last year. I don't know. I don't know who this guy is. I don't know what guy the Mets got. And you're right. And I have to give credit to Dara's Allen, who said this on after one of his overnight updates and I guess Todd zeal said this on the post game which I did not watch after this one, but Mike health Franco has three home runs in the series, right? The other two home runs in this series came in a pitch. The exact same location fastball about letter high. So what on an ode to pitch? Lee is throw this guy who dominates the Mets and his hit two runs on exact same pitch. Some fastball letter high Bom looks like a fly. And by the way, here's the story of the two thousand nineteen minutes, you get the home run that wasn't for them by inches. And this thing which they review is a home run by inches the other way. Yeah. Right. And then those are the breaks when you're going this way, but Edwin de as is not a great closer anymore. And I don't know if he's going to get it back. I don't know. We weren't watching every mariner save last year. I don't know if this is lock I don't know if he's losses competent. I don't know if he's hurt. I don't know if they're going to put him on the I L with Bennett lesion, like they did. Jerry's familiar just because he's things. I don't know. I don't know the answer. But if you're Mickey Callaway and you now can't go to him with any sort of confidence in the entire bullpen now. It Lugo hasn't been good to Adams. Either is infected. You're. Entire bullpen is infected. And this guy you would think just one time after I had many blown saves. They had to win one game out of these four and Philadelphia who have lost seven in a row coming into the series, just one time to take the heat off, then so they have a nice week if forty one Seaver way happens. They have that ceremony. The sixty nine Mets are going to be celebrated this weekend. At city field just to take the heat off. And this is why for everybody that says no fire Mickey Callaway, do something cut this guy trade that guy, they're probably not going to do it because that will take tension away from what they're trying to do at city field this weekend. I don't think it'll happen in the next couple of days. I don't think in two hours. We look down at Twitter and Mike Pompeo tweets out the Mickey Callaway on. I mean, I would be shocked if it happened now but every day that passes though with this same stuff going on. And by the way, when people say, you know what can Mickey Callaway do what? Can the new eighty two year old pitching coach do have out tell your closer not to throw a letter high fastball to a guy who mashes against you who is already hit two home runs with against the same exact pitch? So what could he do? What could he do better scouting more communication? I mean, maybe that wasn't where the pitch was supposed to be. But it's an to fastball to a guy right down the art of the notion festivals fine if it's off the plate. Can't don't right down the middle which tells me obviously missed a spot because he's not good right now. He's just not. And you know what's scary and sad about what you said, if you go back about sixty seconds. If you rewind that whole little thing you said, you said windy as is not a good closer anymore. He's twenty five. Yeah. He's not thirty five to where he shot. He's twenty five may get it back. But I mean right now. He's not he's not anything. He's not. He's not special night. Anything he seven games. We, we have to totally forget about that. It's not the guy or of his last eight. That's not the guy who the Mets got. I don't want to close the blows four games in a season. You are you're going to wipe out all last year. You do. I know you do this point, it's over. You can't keep going him like he something because he's not he's just he's just like everybody on worse. Yeah. Cases and I know he had a couple of decent outings. Evan was on that yesterday. Well, you know, when if you really look, he's kinda gotten better, you know what I'm looking at the totality of the season. I have zero confidence when he comes into close a game zero zilch NADA. That's a two run lead yesterday. You wanna tell me it's a one run game one swing? All right, fine. You're going to be a little leery there by two runs. He still can't close it. Walk in people sharp line drives off Todd Frazier. Woke another guy can't strike out a journeyman and showing Rodriguez and then gene girl, by the way, one to pitch. Yup. Come on. Yeah, you're right about the finishing move is lacking. Red Wendy Guay. Yeah. So, so the. Mets now are just a dead dead total free fall, and they have been dead for days. And now it's essentially to even more in this, this deal now, throat van wagon was going to be defined by the windy as Robinson odeal. There was no doubt about it. We knew it at the time that this was going to be his defining move more than others in this off season. And it really when you say it could not if both of these guys weren't on the field, they better if. Yeah. If these if canot India's were jet Lowry and hadn't played a game this year. It'd be better than what we've gotten from these two guys already Robertson could all by the way, he's up there runners on swings swings through a hanging slider. Like he's got a train the catch a he is every time he steps up to the plate. It's just as slog of ineptitude and Edwin on top of it, you could not have SCR. Shifted a worst first half for those two guys, if you try and know the problem is for me to sit here and bash Brody for the moves. I like them. I didn't like the canot part of it. But I love the fact that they got it windy as I like the jet Lowry signing. I sit here I really can't in good conscience, sit here and destroy him now because it hasn't worked when I set her and said, you know what I was on board with the move. I thought it was out of the box. I kind of liked it. I thought it was different there might have been a better candidate for sure and bloom. And I get that. But I was I liked that they didn't go retread. They didn't go old school. They had a different vision for this team. I thought it was kind of cool. I did the comments after the hiring, find ticket for what it's worth. It's much nonsense. It's hype leave that alone, but then he made the moves he made them like you know what I like this team. I really do. And if you know if pita Lonzo becomes anything they got something here. And if joke McNeil that wasn't a charade last year. They've got something here and now to sit here I I can't good. Conscious just bury the guy for moves that one hundred percent. Agreed with. Yeah, I didn't love the canot one once I found out that they were paying as much as they were n gave parts for sure. I'm with you on that. I did. And I've said many times, I've really and this is embarrassing for me to admit five times a week now because we talk about this Mets bullpen so much that I thought he built a good bullpen. So did I really did. I thought that regardless of how I felt about the Conoco deal in totality, that everyone was at the back end of that bullpen, and I didn't hate Jerry's familiar coming back to be a set one. I didn't love we disagree on that. But that's fine. I, I really like I saw when I work those five years in Pittsburgh. So Justin Wilson be a really good lead hander on good teams. And I said that is a great signing. I said Lugo in and gazelle mean coming back and not using either one of those guys in the rotation. Easy great thing for that bullpen. I thought he built a good bullpen. I thought he'd I really did think now I thought there were other moves that could have been made in one of the conversations I remember having with Evan. In terms of rebuilding this team was it was the Lowery, LeMay. Hugh argument, and I was on, I really wanted to Mayhew just because dork alert just from all the fantasy baseball just watching him from afar. Everyday in Colorado, and people would say you have it was Colorado. I just liked him as a player, and I thought great versatility. And he just good hitter. So I would have preferred them go that route, but I had no issue at Larry at all. And I'm with you. I thought he did what needed to be done with the bullpen and it could not have gone were. I mean you're talking about the worst bullpen in baseball right now. We're muck and the nationals in April their mock in the midst now. And so is the rest of there's not a lead big enough now that I think you're comfortable with any game you can't watch it anymore. You really can't I mean it's gotten to that point now where they hand over a lead to the bullpen don't wanna see it again because it's sickening. And I don't know about you. But I'm watching this game yesterday, and I was ballooning to more than I was watching it because I was doing some stuff. I wasn't around yesterday in the car in the back yard had to go out for something in the evening and you're looking at the game. You're listening to the game. And my thought is good. They're just gonna lose one nothing. We don't even have to discuss this tomorrow. We'll mention it and move on. And then it's like all right. They came back. In one, we can actually have a little positive start. I'm sure we'll get right to the NBA and then the unthinkable happens, and it's almost like they suck you back in, because they infuriate you with the way think about the way they're losing these games. I said it is a joke and one report yesterday. The Mets are finding new ways to lose each day. They're legitimately finding new ways lose each. It's like that caller said the other day when I was driving, and it was actually genius. It's Mets clo- and yesterday was a Goro with a home run in the ninth that's was if you had that you wanna game you want the game for me. So, you know watching the game then we have plans to go out on the water with another couple get some dinner at a restaurant. So I'm at the at the marina, and I look. I see. All look mex- took delete. So that's great. Look at this good for them. You know, good for them. Tell my friend, good for them. They might win a game before they come back. Take the pulled over to where we go. I doc, right? I get the boat. I head toward the bar restaurant and I guess he took. Cheats, heist. Basis in their throat everything up, and there's gator. L to grow. Does the scored five rugs? Thinning over DNC unbelievable. And then I just thought here we go again. And I'm gonna and then I just, of course, thinking I'm supposed to have a great night out dinner and everything. I'm just thinking of you on Monday. View, as I said, go to ads. Sunday. Luckily the one and we could see I told you so. But I mean, this is exactly what you feared and Mugo it and do the job didn't do the job a second time in a row. I get it. But that's this is exactly why I would not have done, what people wanted them to do on Sunday in Chicago to me. No, it made no sense because there is nothing that told me he was gonna come in, in a tight spot in that game. Especially if there was a guy on the one thing you did like yesterday was that he got a clean inning? He comes in in the night. He starts tonight these good for three hours the night before, right? He gave you three an easy was at the ninety pitched in the tiger the night before if a little bit better. That's fine. But it's full gold leadoff walk. We're the polls here we guess we thought that's the other thing, Kenya, not walk the damn leadoff better. I'd rather give up a solo home run there then walk saying stupid. But actually Mickey said the exact same thing. He said the exact same after the game. Just I mean, there aren't enough words to. Scribe it. And you know what people have phone with Mike all the time. Mike was spot on yesterday. This belief is just unreal. Every every body was thinking it when he came into the game. I how is he gonna blow this this and he Dinnie any did their good players on this team? This is not a new have fun with it all the time go for it. They're seven eight games under five hundred now. They suck. I get it. They're not a bad baseball team. They don't have anyone to close a game. And I'll tell you know, the thing because I was in the news at take a break, I was in the newsroom yesterday when the guy made the call yesterday, and you guys got ahead fought with him. You know what, not so stupid Noah and Steven you got this game. Jacob vargas. You got this game. Can it be worse? Well, no. That wasn't the argument against it. The caller said, don't use a bullpen at all except for one day a week. He's a bullpen game and then use to starters every day and just rotate them. I'm joking of course. But you get the that's the level of absurdity. We've gone with this people. Try to invent new ways to play baseball just to avoid the Mets pen because it's the. The worst. And I know flexing was okay yesterday and Brooks. Pounders. Okay. I said he has I said, again, I would cut them all. I know I can't cut mom, I wouldn't cut the as yet. I wouldn't do that. And I know I can't do anything with me, because he's quote unquote injured. Everybody in the bullpen get out. And I'll bring up guys from AAA because you tell me can it be worse? No, it can't. Absolutely. All we can do is improve. It can't be worse. Absolutely. Seth Lugo Robert zooming go somewhere else, and they perform great. Oh, so you get your weight. And as soon as it comes back DFA. You can't get rid of Lugo. Now give it all for Diaz. Wait. He did. He has only twenty five. I gotta give him a chance. I can't give it a Lugo yet I can't he's had him. He was like the only guys put together a couple of decent outings. Save Lugo save D as and everybody everybody else goes into make statement. Because you know what that would do. And I know it's it's not going to happen. I get it. Don't call and yell at me. But you know what it would do? It would show everybody on the team. You know what you guys you guys have put run. You've given us leads. We've got your back. These guys suck get them out. Yeah. Right. Find someone that can do the job. It's sort of, like that, that old NFL thing in the locker room where there's contentious stuff happening because the defense is really is terrible or vice versa. I mean that's basically what's going on. Now with with the bullpen and rest of the team if you were on the field. How would you feel like the night in and night out? This apt totally mind numbing frustration. I born geo at Gerry in four boomer this morning. Mets Yankees in NBA free agency. We'll get into all. Call eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six number to call. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo Mets to the same thing. Again this time windy as just a spectacle of a meltdown in Philadelphia. It's so frustrating because it's the Phillies they were in their own downward spiral, and you're thinking that this whole off season for them, which I thought was a great offseason, for the Phillies is going to blow up in their face. And that would at least gave us some satisfaction as Mets fans to see them struggle, as well of this season was going to go that way. And now the Mets might have just resurrected their entire season by rolling in there and playing the way that they are so bamboo, whatever it's the Mets that were able to get the Phillies healthy is no doubt about that. And running around and throwback uniforms and that home. When that Segovia homerun went out there, and all the Phillies fans just going crazy. It was just it just. It's just makes you sick. I was very disappointed. Jimmy Rollins was not on the test, too. I went and checked for you to did you hear that stuff? She low yesterday. I did not know my goodness, Jimmy Rollins. I guess does a select few Phillies games on TV now. Okay. And he has taken the cake for talking over the play by play guy being the Coles worse than you've ever heard. So I was thinking one of the first things I thought after my anger went away with Jimmy Rollins was probably screaming all over Tom McCarthy, but he had the day off, just like boomer does. That's why ceelo is here. Jerry's in for him. So we've got a ceelo update happening right now. Good morning. Chris, I brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town fair tire. Nobody everyone though. Of course, beating the Mets these days, especially the Phillies watches deep. Deep. Dary y there you go Zork and in the bamboo, four-game sweep as this team blows another lead five runs in the ninth of Edwin served homers to cigar, and Michael Franck. Oh. And here's the finish sounded right here on the fan. Gora hits shot homerun. Unbelievable. Yeah. Mike was in rare form yesterday. It was it was tremendous, especially the video, if you get a chance to check it out and other total meltdown for the Mets. Bullpen fifth straight game in which they blew a multi run lead. It's the first time that's happened in major league baseball since twenty eleven on a take guests who the last team to do. It was. There you go. So we get to the post game with Mickey Calloway, and it's just more of the same nonsense. This is blowing four of his last eight save opportunities. How do you assess what you're seeing from him right now last night, it was electric on. Also, God Mickey referencing that twelve pitching in a non save situation from Wednesday with the Mets ended up losing anyway in this one, they had one hit through eight. It came from Zack Wheeler of all people, they're down one nothing in the ninth. Todd Frazier hits the go ahead. Two run Homer of Hector Narus insurance run. They got a two run lead. They Hannibal the as you get six seventy do up for the Phillies and can't get them home, as these rallies often do it all started with a free pass thing that hurt us of the walks more than anything legal walk, you got a two two run lead. It's tough to walk a guy, you know that away if they hit a solo Homer, you're still ahead and it was a three two slider. No less. Right. I mean you're, you're basically nibbling against the leadoff guy with two run. They're just all in the night. It doesn't make a lot of sense Mets fall. Eight games under five hundred Mickey says it's just not fair. Been way too close to, to have this many loss. And that's how bad their bullpen. I mean he is. But he's right. His team and they had no I'm sorry. Not his bullpen heating constructive open. No, I'm not saying. I mean, they're all they all share some responsibility. I think they also use your future score for tonight on the Lonzo. Did you? All right. So tonight you've got Jerry decided to come up with a box score for tonight's game that has not happened yet. Of course. So he's got the Mets leading eight nothing going into the ninth and the brave score. Eleven eleven eight. Yeah. Not, not off the table. That's how about the fact that a week ago, we actually sat here and decided to bet the Mets win and shutout right? To do it again tonight. But unless he's going nine it's the it's not happening, but that was the whole point. I know but he hasn't this year. I don't think they're all going to have to start I guess their arms. Seventy five. The, the line would be eleven eight Braves. Yes. All right. I'll look that we have to we have to do. We have to put another. A little leftover. Here's Diaz through his translator says they got the best of those trying to go the best, which is that I could seem they were just like prepared for every pitch. Just so bad day for me and home runs came around. We lost the game now again it's through the translator. So for second right after the trade, he did not talk to translator. He was true. Yes. He was on high heat with dog think about that. Yeah, if you're able to understand him, you stand all sorts. Right. So now all of a sudden he's blowing saves against. Here's what I think I remember that. And I think it was it was tough. It was tough, gene. Here's an examples GIO or shell came on with Mike no translator yet he'll use one. I think they're in those right after the game when you're answering for things that happened on the field and those immediate moments think they wanna make sure there's no confusion and sometimes they're shallow like the translators there, if he understands the question of feels comfortable answering in English he will other times, he'll look to the translator and get some assistant. So. You know, it's, it's sort of like a case by case basis. And we know with all the beat reporters and writers, standing there and the tape recorder's going, the TV cameras, going, you don't wanna come across the wrong way. So I get it from that standpoint. But for that answer specifically that I just played it's through the translator. You wonder how exacted is when he said I feel like I was making good pitches. Then you go back and you look at the pitch girl hits. I mean he missed his spot by complete with of the plate. So it's hard. It's hard to say that it was a he made a good pitch because he didn't I wanna go back member. He when he blew the first save I wanna say he said that point it'll never happen again. Effort that he wrote, I'm glad to get it out of the way, remember that to ever happen again. Yeah. Check that out numerous times. So the Phillies were a mess coming into this series and they of course, rip off four straight after utility, man, Brad Miller, brought that bamboo plant into the clubhouse as a good luck charm, perhaps, the Mets can try something similar when they returned to Citi field tonight. It's off three and eight road trip. They've got the Braves for three the Yankees for to Billy's again. That's right. Voodoo patriots. Toronto to get Jabbour in their Joe boo. Anything we sacrifice a live chicken like it was at Durham, okay? Okay. I cannot get the, the runs eleven eights not available. It's not just for this game. Not yet, at least maybe a little bit later. We did it in the nine o'clock hour. I believe less. Yes. We did. Now he's towards the end of the show. You think that the Braves are going to win the game. Do you think that the sun coming up? So you think the Braves are gonna win the game. Now saroka going for you can get them for the home run. I know Alex these because with his parlays did this, which the match double okay guy hits a home run for the team in the team wins any guy or you got to pick the guy. That's dude. Well, that's where you get the better on. You. Donaldson hits a home run in the Braves wings, it plus six hundred plus six fifty. Yeah. See there you go. That's what we might have to. That was a great bet in the football season. If you picked the quarterback to score a touchdown the rushing scores a big fan of the rushing score for love the rushing. Yeah. Case dollars FREDDY Freeman homering FREDDY Freeman and a Braves win is plus six hundred Dan's be Swanson. Danby. Plus, eight hundred. Yes. I like that. How about a kunia and Albee's nine fifty for Albee's and six hundred for a kunia. Now, if you feel good about the Mets, you can get great odds on their well because because of the wind fact, that's probably why they do play while they're into grams pitching. I understand. But the bullpen I'm pitches. Eastone Resor a- homers in wind, plus eleven yeah. This is stuff you have to do to get yourself interested. Cool. Okay. What about one more? How about a. What about Alonzo? See Alana's, actually, everybody your course. Plus four million home ri-. You can hope we also tag on window it. That's what I just said. You gave me grams pitching Canoas, plus eight fifty. It should be plus eight thousand but it's plus v. By the way, we gotta get to that make you know, he's swinging the bed. He went over five. You gave him the day off he pinch hit and he struck out. I mean come on, man. We're not morons. I understand what you're trying to do. But no one, it's. Choice in it. Do you think Brody says you need to say this about this player in most gaining key saying you need to play Keno is one thing, but then talking him opposite. He's turns sort of corners, embarrassing. It's true. You're not fooling anybody. But I think that's who who Mickey is though. I think that, that is just he wants to find the best in everything, I guess, man, so degrom saroka tonight, seven ten coverage on WCBS eighty. And by the way, city field address is now officially forty-one Seaver way following Thursday's ceremony to honor the hall of Famer organization has also commissioned. A senior statue finally which at some point will be displayed in front of the building. The happiest guy in New York was yesterday how he rose because they kept him home. Watch that crap yesterday. I just said to Harris I wish he would have been in Philadelphia. So I could have heard his call there in the ninth inning. Join you call was tremendous wasn't Eddie. No is Wayne, no fence to Wayne. Just Gary had the bamboo. We'll hear we'll definitely get to Wayne's call at some point later this morning. Meantime, across the pond. Yankees getting acclimated to London life before their two-game set with the Red Sox, beginning Saturday afternoon, as you know, Giancarlo Stanton, not on the trip. He's got what Brian Cashman described as a strain in the right knee. This is amazing. What kind of fraternity timeframe? Are we looking at here, reels up going this way? So we'll get a better feel in the coming weeks about timeframe, rather put a timeframe they get busted if I get it rolling. So then the follow up can't he was asked if sometime in July might be realistic. I would say it safer to look into August. I wouldn't. I don't want to say it's unlikely July, but sweet spot would be August in terms of not getting burned. So he's going to be down for a while. So I don't wanna give it time line because it wouldn't be fair because where we are in London and everything. So what about your life won't be July August? I was really hard to get to the bottom. The forty games this year. Basically played nine already comes back August. He's got to see who could play fifty or sixty. I came. I mean look, not that I'm trying to keep him even came back in September. You've them a whole month to ramp himself up there. Fortunately in a position where they can do that because they have all these other guys contributing, right? They're not dying without him. Who says he's gonna come back and stay healthy though. Yeah. You gotta remember that first injury. He had turned into six of the injured I could happen in August two who they came back at another injury. A different one Asli I'd be much more concerned about me, judge has done a great job of staying healthy not. I mean not criticizing him. That's the one I have more concern about obviously Michael Brantley got more votes than he did the all star. While judge is he missed such a large chunk. I it was Aaron. Less than one percentage point on the final vote got the final spot. I hear. That's fair. Mytalk men brought on the trip. Not Clint Frazier. But Cashman said that was more about positional versatility and defensive ability, more so than anything else that could change. Once they get back to the states, Frazier, by the way since being sent down to AAA four for twenty eight three doubles a home or eight strikeouts. He's not exactly tearing the cover off the ball, you'd have to imagine the motivation isn't exactly there at the moment, also would Scranton. He's D F is one hundred percent. Definitely speaking of button. It's not speaking, but I forgot to mention this did you see what happened with? No Syndergaard after yesterday's did not see. No. Okay. So I, I should have the exact tweet and what it said. But it was something along the lines of, you know, Mickey Callaway, most have so much dirt on Bernie van wagon or something along those lines and Noah liked it. And then, of course, after the fact came out and said it was an accidental like everybody calm down, but Twitter. Someone else tweeted into liked the tweet which is about Mickey having dirt on Brody, and that's the outright. There you go. Fliegelman gave me the line. He must have some great blackmail material on Brodie van wagon. And that's why still has his job essentially like tweets. And then as again, maybe, maybe it was accidental but we've seen that act before where the athlete to save face after the facts as I was an accident. I didn't realize my bed, right? But of course, it sends specific thing like it couldn't have been, you know, tweet about knock, you tweet about something. God, I think it was done on purpose. And each is dumb. Probably. I mean. He knows what he's doing. He's a big social media guy. Right. So dumb, whatever but yeah, I would agree not by accident. That's bad. And he's do back from the island this next turn through the rotation. So keep an eye on that house Steinbrenner briefly with the media out in London yesterday willing to take on salary to improve the Yankee pitching staff in advance of the trade deadline. As always, we're going to be we're going to be looking at everything in July. And whatever news, come up we're gonna we're gonna consider him. You did say more concerned about the level of prospect, they'd have to give up as opposed to going over the third luxury tax level, quote, what am I losing, what is the future? I'm giving up. So it sounds like they are willing to open up the checkbook as you would expect coming from the Yankee starters for next month's all-star game announced. The Astros leading all teams with three representatives. Jerry already gave you. Michael brantley. You've also got Alex bregman, George Springer. And there are two Yankees in the starting line of Gary Sanchez DJ LeMay. The Mets, of course, get shut out, because Alonzo didn't make it to that final vote for the first base position. We'll see about the reserves which, I believe, Sunday, you would think he's right. And what he's he's gotta be Alonzo. I would certainly going to be on the roster. Just he's not. He's not going as starter, right? There's no ways left. You don't think he's on all star team. I don't know. I don't know good options. So I'd, I know that I know they have. I think he's going to be in the home run derby. So he's going to be a part of the festivities. Anyway, I don't know. I don't even though it's a deep position nationally. I know I don't know, for sure. That's fast quickly some notable outta town scores. Dodgers out slugged the Rockies twelve to eight twelve straight win over Colorado, Craig kimbrel, earn the saving his cubs debut and of course, got it against his former team. Cubs beat the Braves nine seven pirates pounded the Astros ten nothing. They outscored Houston twenty four to two across the final two games of that series and the raise survived the twins in eighteen innings five to two. They used eight relievers to get it done. They're still six and a half. It was started with the one hundred percent. Sure. Because eighteen innings if they had an opener eight pitchers across eighteen innings on top of it. They did was it. Ryan Stanic that's one of their goats. It's usually. I went the first two innings so that's actually not bad. Eighteen innings with an opener and they only use eight guys, right? Budget went three. That's why the Mets would opener the if they played a game seven six Brooks pounders longest game in history baseball, which is going to resort. It would be pitching the end they wouldn't get through that, right? Couple NBA before we go. So the Lakers unloading these three contracts, quite honestly three guys. I personally never heard of. I'm not the biggest NBA guy, but they opened up thirty two million dollars worth of cap space battle. Because I can literally not heard them. Always like, I'm not gonna even go there because I don't know. I can't tell you anything about these guys, so the combo of the three contracts and Anthony Davis waving. His four million dollar trade bonus gives them another MAC celery slot. Also, the bronze apparently given up his number twenty three to switch to number six by the Sixers and yeah. That is true. I didn't think about the personal even the names, Jeff Wagner, Wagner. Heck is mowing mom. You don't remember him from again. Very good players. I, I don't I don't have the name does not Belga. Belga jones. Yeah. Okay. But you should you should know fine. I mean, what's he done in the NBA? Well, nothing. But I mean yet somehow these three guys in something we've got thirty two mil worth the cap space, which tells me these no names were making multi million dollars. Which is absurd. You remember jimmer for debt. Of course. I do remember those guys MO Wagner, though, does not on me. That's fine. I'll wear it and co is going to give the raptors the final meeting. Yeah. Out in LA, and they're on the Knicks are still pantley work into set up with offer. Okay. Stephen a Smith. Basically, continuing to say these two are going to Brooklyn. Yeah. He said it yesterday. I guess, on his show up his show and said, yeah, basically, that, that it's done. So, and then you have others guy, yahu inside a Kris Haines, who was saying that it was the Knicks. So true. Yeah, he said, it's going to the Knicks over the nets. So I I mean I don't know what the hell the same. Jalen Rose's, the Knicks other people's aids. The nets. I still think they're saying the clippers. And by the way, people's fascination with Colli Leonard's vacation and the stuff that he's done post have you seen the latest thing now. It's like it's a picture of him on, on a tube. Getting dragged behind a boat like kind of looking like he's having fun. And now that is for him. That's probably having a blast. Yeah. They kind of looks like he's having time. Half a smile like almost fun. And now that's all over the place him sitting at VIP table at a pool party. That was a me to do. He does. Well, he's, he's a name do you expect Durant? I saw this yesterday that he was sold. His home in LA. Yeah. In Mel of teen million dollars. We got a he's got rid of adding fat, and there was a pick with him and Charles Oakley, which is the worst thing for the Knicks. Like you would think that, that would be a good thing, all with the Knicks legend. It's gonna come to the next Charles Oakley said, every bad word about that organization down order to Kevin Durant while they were talking as my guests. And if I'm Charles locally at prior would have done the same. Exactly. Not shouldn't treat me. Right. Exactly. But anybody who thought, oh, this is a sign to know why at Oakley Stokely also said, if anybody's considering going coming to New York, you need to talk to me, because I'll tell you, everything you need to know those things own meetings free agents coming to him, tell you everything means trashing all. The dirt real quick women's World Cup. US France today, quarterfinals, three eastern for the soccer fans out. There are very good. Thank you. See. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti boomer and geo rumor off today. You will be back Monday for the NBA free agency extravaganza that will start really Sunday June thirtieth at six PM in the rumors are everywhere. We will talk about that coming up right after seven o'clock we have who tickets before seven o'clock, so you want to win some tickets at MSG. We'll give you that opportunity in twelve minutes or less, but of course, we opened up with another Mets loss. I really did think that today would be NBA free agency. Talk. It wouldn't be so much about the Mets disaster. But they just it's like they wanna get talked about negativity. They do stuff on the field and off the field as if they are trying to acquire negative press, even when you want to avoid the conversation about how bad they've been. In you can't you can't do it. Mets fans. Don't wanna hear it anymore. We don't wanna talk about it anymore, but you have to because the level of negativity and dysfunction, that has permeated itself into this organization. You cannot ignore these losses of spectacular definition. Yes. It's not just a random. Oh, they lost three one. They played okay? They just didn't win halo six to. No, no. They take you all the way to the ninth inning. And then just rip your guts out sin, then show them to you. Right. Let's go to Tim in Long Beach going on him going on. Listen. Persons for the Mets. Pitchers can now hold anyone is on base. They can't haven't been able to for years. It's impossible. Guys on the second one out. They always school the metal what they always come in number two. Canot familiar and a lorry take loss. Eat the money, which I doubt the will, of course, I'd also brody's going to have to admit fault on that, and it wouldn't make him. Look any good. If he makes all these brash moves and then pulls the plug on those guys after a half a season. It's like what the cardinals did Steve time out there in Arizona with cardinals where you'd get a head coach head coach draft a quarterback in the first round and the next year you've got another New Haven traffic quarterback. I overall I mean it makes you it really puts a spotlight on how bad you did at your job. Well. Like Incheon canno-, I think, has a most double plays was one is in, in the awful, awful first and second can comes up to outs. Term. What do you think? Let me ask you this multi whatever the hell you think has happened to them. And I don't want to just hear about steroids and all that because it's, it's more than that, because he wasn't like this, at the end of last year, and the notion and Obama had some fun with it saying, well, maybe the it was still an assistant. He was banned most of the season. It wasn't still in a system like one guys like by who what saying age saying he didn't turn forty feet overnight. Well, okay. That could be the answer. I guess he's a lazy best. He still has that good in swing. It just it's not what happened by Erica. We talk about alum example, and you and here's the thing about those two as opposed to this one, which is why never thought this would happen. He played here and excelled teary knew the market. He's gone through slum sear and had, it was fine getting through them. This has been all season. The scarier want to me because I think everybody projected a stark declined from canot at some point, it happened sooner than we thought is, Edwin s that's the one that's greed, because this guy is young and in his prime and was supposed to dominate. And by the way, if he had dominated the Mets might actually be in season or wildcard right now. That's the one that scares me Robinson could break down. All right. Whatever mean you knew you were going to be on the hook for this guy being in his late thirties, making a whole bunch of money and probably not producing. Could happen sooner than we expected. But you've gotta Lonzo you've got McNeill, you've got confided. If you've got resolve these guys have been producing the offense has been okay offense has been fine said, when that's the issue Mike in Brooklyn. What's going on? Mike Mona God moaning. What's not wanna know. You guys have a lot of restore cutting. Somebody look on YouTube and see, like how it wouldn't be as all these fifty seven phase last year. Like did it look like this or was he may? I don't know what it is. But I remember he had some somewhere around at amount of save and you see what he turned into. Yeah. If you want all get back to ten. Yeah, we'll just we'll sit here in silence. From now until the end of the show and just go through all of those guys have a lot of resources YouTube, like everybody's got that go look at Fifty-seven saves on YouTube. Listen. I understand what Mike saying I mean the larger point is that he was a different pitcher last year. And now he's not any good. I like to talk to one of the analytics guys he's twenty five so it's not like you got older. He aged right? I would think the analytics told you at twenty four eight fifty seven saves and was a lockdown no doubt about her closer yet. So what are they saying? Right now. Bullpens are fickle relievers or up and down year to year. We've seen that. However, there's a couple of guys every year that are above that, and have some consistency and Edwin as was supposed to be that guy. He was supposed to be the guy that was above that above the roller coaster that is a bullpen from year to year. And it's just been an atrocity. Now, I also think that, you know, in July August September D as they might be better. I mean, they have the capability of being better. They better be better. But the probably my. At the end of the year saying, oh man, if we had the af. Like this, then what would happen? Let me ask you, then we're going to be sitting there saying it's full gold like what are they? And I guess Diaz you'd feel better about again, because he's twenty five if he gave you something the last three months of the season. But with canot you just don't know on basically given up on on. I don't think he's what do you do with this albatross? Then create injuries and sit him down is long as well. Yeah. Create injuries yet do the Jacoby ellsbury. No. As long as brody's here. He's going to give Robbins and every opportunity to try to right himself at risk of ruining his own career. I think GM I think so because here's the thing, what else do you do with them, because injuries and sit them and send them to port Saint Lucie, because the one thing about Brody van wagon and here's what we know for four years. Well, how's it going for ellsbury? It's been find that hotel. You were talking about putting together. With van wagon you brought this point up a couple of weeks ago or so he's a very confident guy. He wants to succeed for his reputation. Let me put me paint this picture for you. Is it the worst thing in the world? That Robinson can sort of disappeared and the Mets became good. No. I think that's great. I, I am with you. If there's a way that we could make him a vapid rate. I'm ready to sign however va- vapid. However, here's the problem episode of charm. It's. Old because one, now you're asking the wilpon eat this contract. Right. And never going to do that. They already get now because he's making them. Eat it by strike out every time it goes up. He's still playing I do. But to the incomes back to this situation, I'm talking about with for Milia. You pay guy ten million dollars to go out there and just fail. Miserably or debate guy ten million dollars to go away, pay someone five hundred thousand dollars to do as bad or a little bit better of a job, feigned make sense. But there's just been a long history in baseball where these guys can walk they can swing and they can breathe, that they're going to get an opportunity 'cause they're making all that money. Then it's just it's hard. It's awful. It's horrible awful. But we're going to have to live with it to end. Imagine if the ratings we came in twelfth, but you know what they're making a lot of money doing anything with them, right? It really is. Like the only know said, I know, but it's only for a finite amount of time, you know, they'll give you an opera. Tunic eventually, it's enough. But let me look at Chris Davis in Baltimore. Think about nuts. I'm aware think about that contract. He's out there every day isn't he? You know what I have not watched the Orioles, that ridiculous streak ended? So I don't know if he's playing every day. But you're right. He's making a fortune in doing nothing on a team that's gonna win forty five games these worse than Robertson Cano by a landslide and your correct. But at least he did something for that organization. At least Orioles fan, you can probably still walk in the Camden Yards wearing Chris Davis jersey. And if someone says something a jackass hit fifty home runs a couple of years ago, he did something for the Orioles Robins. You know, is a Yankee still in the eyes of met fans until he does something he's done nothing for opening day in Washington. You know, it is amazing all the people of called up and made the by air gun Alamar comparisons. And we said, no, no, no. It's going to be different and came back after the suspension, it's been exactly that exactly that and worse. And I was I remember when they got Robbie Alamar, and I was thrilled because he was so damn good in Cleveland that year before. I mean, he always locked for the hall of fame. And that's what the Mets. And I was he just was. And I know you had the incident with the spitting in the face, but he was a guy that I knew of the pirate that I knew was clubhouse guy beloved. He was just going to be someone that was going to be great for the team and just a mess. Yup. Total mess. All right. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo live from the investors Bank. Studio is in geo Jerry in for bloomer this morning. Yes, we will continue to talk Mets in aptitude, if you want to get it off your chest at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six, but wanna talk some MBA before we get into all the latest rumors and what's going on? There is something that has happened where people have g sunk their teeth into this idea of Cairo Irving being the worst human on earth like it seems like kyri Irving has turned into like this villain. This cancer in the locker room. This guy was going to torpedo your franchise, and it's crazy. And I was just saying this to Jerry when we're about to talk about this whole NBA deal and kyri going to the nets and everything else about how I've actually been a kyri Irving support through even his worst moments. Like, in thing in Boston is tough to defend but at the same time, I really don't think he's going to be bad personality wise, if he ends up in Brooklyn or elsewhere when he wanted out of Cleveland and think that was a big deal. I don't think the guy with the whole flatter thing. I think it was sort of messing around half the time. I mean, the guy everybody in the NBA got some sort of personality flaw seems like right every week and nitpick everything. So as we're talking about this, and I'm talking about defending Kyrie. I hear the CBS sports minute Bill writer, who's in for boomer today and I had get fliegelman out to, to pull this to make sure that I heard this correct. So, so play guys, if you have a choice to engage in some twisted turn of fate between carrier Ving and Kemba Walker the decision, simply kyri, go to hell Kemba locked into Boston. So he's a fan. It's wanting to be like, I would take Kimball walk over Cairo. Kyri sia. Thanks for your coda hell extreme wouldn't like is he a die hard Celtic fan. I don't know. I would think because that sounds like someone who is all in on the west coast guy. Bill writer Irene go to hell. Go to hell is a bit much kyri go to hell even Evan, if he comes here and torpedoes the nets wouldn't say that, right? Kyri go f yourself. You jerk what's going on? I think he's a Celtic fan. I don't know. He he may be you can't say that if you're not I think he did. I think he did. I'm not sure we'll try to figure out if he is a Celtics fan or not. But I, I really it pains me to have to defend Kyrie Irving, because he inevitably it seems like he's going to sign with the nets not going to be able to like him any longer. It's going to be frustrating because the Knicks should've been the team that, that he had chosen. But I don't think it's the worst thing in the world of a Durant, Kyrie Irving thing. Now if those guys are teaming up with this Durant injury. I think that would still be foolish for the Knicks to do that. But I mean, this is it's not it's taken on a life of its own. Yeah. Very much. So and to the point where you've got guys like Bill Ryder telling him to hell. The one thing I would say because the whole Kirita Brooklyn thing, I've been torn on because I like what the Angelo Russell's become, then I read a very in-depth articles. Michael about the pluses and minuses to keeping Russell as opposed to kyri and has Russell hit his peak already, even though he's only twenty three is he worth kyri worth the extra money? And then the read the article, it's basically the stats will show the for Russell gets a kyri. It is worth the extra money. The thing that concerns me about Kyrie Irving, and it's been the same for me for months now thinking about it is more about him saying, healthy, and I do want to know what the hell happened in boss. I don't care about him asking at Cleveland at all. But I do want to know what was the deal in Boston. Did he just I heard Brian scall- brainy Joan Evan yesterday the day before whatever it was? And, you know, he was he pretty much came to Cairo Irving's defense just saying that Irving, his probably much more comfortable in New York, then he wasn't Boston. He's like you guys don't know Boston. It's a different place. So we don't know the ins and the outs. But I would love to know why when Seoul bad in Boston for him with that team. Well, I think it was it was a personality conflict with the younger players. Air with Tatum. Jalen Brown where his personality and style of play and his intensity did not match theirs. And that's why there were stories during the year that Cairo Irving had reached down to LeBron James and apologized for the way that he acted when he was younger player because now when he was a veteran and he saw these younger players acting like he did how frustrated he was sure. I get it. But at the same time, how do I know that won't happen here? Yeah I very young team. Sure. But there's also not like I really can't say the Tatum, Jalen Brown like big personalities, though. You know what I'm saying? I don't think so. Yes. So I but the nets are very they're very even keeled these guys. There's, there's nobody who's like someone who's going to be offended. Sure. That kyri is coming through superstar thing. I mean but like really think that Spencer Dinwiddie and. Karras lavars domes guys. I don't. But would you have thought the same thing when he went to Boston? You just said there were mass. Personalities. I agree with that. Yeah, you had a head coach who was thought of as next great up and coming coach and still is. So he was in control of the team. It didn't go well, I kind of feel like Kenny Atkinson has a good feel for this team. They listened to them. They play hard for them. But why is it going to be different? And I'm not saying Willer I don't know. That's my only concern. Yeah. Kyri if kyri stays healthy through this max deal that he gets. He is going to be great for whatever teams on. I agree. I think I don't I don't believe that he's gonna fracture another locker room and I think he's going to be great, if that's the case, then do it, and bring Durant. And I'm on board with it. Then then then you are. I am for a while. I don't know. I'm bored with it. Because Daniel Russell funny player watching them last year. If you watch them the first part of the season, he was a big fat, nothing. He really didn't give you a whole lot for the type of player that you thought he would be. And he was coming off the but he wasn't even starting. He wasn't in the game in the fourth quarter. And there was a few games heat even step foot in the final ten minutes of an important close game that concerns you then all of a sudden some din when he gets hurt things kind of change. And he became the player, you think he can be. He seems like he's a little fragile. I'm all in Goget Durant, and bringing kyri. And let's do it. Yeah. The thing that would scare me about those two, and this is the same thing that would scare me if it were the Knicks, there's no doubt about it, and that's why the Durant injury and signed into a max deal like that. I think it's just it's just something I wouldn't do I would I would be patient about it. But I- kyri Irving's knees or a major problem. And now you're adding that factor to Kevin Durant coming off of this injury. It's a scary proposition now. Is it a risk worth taking? If you're the have been building and building and building and building, and you've got this opportunity to, to take some of that spotlight away from the Knicks in the same town. I think I think you have to know why. They're still good. Well, right. They're good, right? Now. I mean they're at the point where they made the playoffs, and then you're thinking, you add Kyrie maybe you go deeper into the playoffs in the year after that maybe you've got a team that's that's ready to compete for a championship whereas the Knicks now and also Kevin Durant goes into that it's similar to the warriors, but obviously the talent differential is still large. But if you're Kevin Durant, and you're saying, all right. I wanna go into a place where it's not all going to be knee saving this franchise. I've got this guy that guy in this guy, and I can take my time and make sure that I come back into a ready made team that's, that's going to compete as opposed to the Knicks where we have. No idea is going to be on this team. We don't know if, if Kevin Durant signed with the Knicks on Sunday night. He won't know who he's playing correct. No idea. I mean, that is a problem. Yes. Whereas, you know with the nets in the warriors hill know when he comes back, he's playing the biggest thing to. And I've said this and you guys more, boomer, the new guys Ma. Wanna kept saying, Kevin Durant to Brooklyn if he wants New York, you can have New York and not have the glitz and the glamour immediately because the nets I love the nets you guys don't. I'm in that fan. I'm one of few that are here that actually enjoy watching the team play. Yes there in New York. Yes, they'll get the media coverage, but it's not the Knicks but they, he has an opportunity to come here live the New York, life have his offices here. Do everything he wants to do in New York, and I don't want us to have the pressure, because that's not, that's not fair. You're so the pressure. But it's not the same thing. But he can turn it into that, if he came to Brooklyn and succeeded, he can make the nets more relevant than the Knicks. In the eyes of many now, basketball wise, they are immediately as soon as he comes here. But in terms of the viewership and the phantom in the ratings and all that he has the opportunity to make the nets more relevant the Neg, then the next and can do it for years to come in all those years with Jason Kidd, Kerry, Kittles Kenyon, Martin, Richard Jefferson. They were the better basketball team. They played in jersey. And it just Brooklyn's got a feel to it. And if you bring in that personality and I know he's not playing for the first year. But if you bring him in with the Kyrie Irving knowing that he's coming next year, and I do believe we'll be okay. Tough injury. But I also think he's a different type of guy and you still have the team intact, minus Russell. It's a good team with nothing. But I'd because let me ask you this. What's the worst? It doesn't work. They don't win. Okay. Then it's been their history yet. Sure. But I wouldn't say nothing but up side. I mean there is a chance that things go south because of all the factors we talked about trade it a win trade away some picks now. Correct. Which you didn't wanna do that. There were so diligent in new in rebuilding the team to create more cap space. You'd be saying goodbye to guy, the ngelo. Russell finally showed superstar capabilities. It's not like it's all upside, if they to me it is because I, I don't see the downside that they don't win. They've never won. So it's not like while, you know, this is the Lakers. They won in the seventies, they won in the eighties. They one of the nineties, they went and they gotta win. This is not a franchise. That is dying for a championship. They came really close with one group and didn't get there. And like I said, the chorus still young, it's not like you're blowing it up sign these two guys there's a difference where they got rid of a couple of contracts, but to me insignificant. It's not like if you look at the Lakers prior to the LeBron signing it was all youth, and they were trying to figure it out and they didn't know what the hell they were doing. They basically blue this thing up now with Anthony Davis and LeBron if that doesn't work out, for whatever reason if that doesn't work out in LA. Let's say all of a sudden the injury that LeBron had last year. Maybe it was more serious than we thought and it becomes a little bit more chronic and he's never the player. He was again, Anthony Davis had his injury problems, too. He's got issues and these don't stay on the court and the Lakers perennially become a very average basketball team. That's eight seven seed was. Blowing up the entire youth for that franchise worth. It to me. I'd say, no, but here's the difference, though with the nets and the Lakers the Lakers in that core. Last year. They were bad. They missed the playoffs the nets with the core. That they're building now this way has worked, but it's still there. But I know it's still there. But you're getting rid of at least the Andro Russell you would think and now also the draft picks at your trading away, and you're going for two guys who who have question marks around him. So it's you're skipping ahead. And selecting two guys that could also not work how this, I'm not sold on diangelo Russel yet. Okay. That's fine. That's fine. I mean, but that is a factor end effect on Spencer, Dinwiddie, and Karras Lavertu if he's at one hundred percent I mean these were guys before charissa awards at Minnesota, where he got hurt with a dislocated ankle before that he was on a run that all of a sudden we were looking at him as being the next great knit superstar. We really were. If you're watching him he was playing spectacular bass. Ball Spencer Dinwiddie has had. And you sit there. There's a reason they lock them up last year. He was that good. I don't sit there and laugh. I mean listen doors. I don't like the nets. I don't think they're ever going to be more popular than the Knicks. I get annoyed with the fact that the players that I wanted or looking at the nets better destination. My team all of that is out there, but I mean I've great respect for what they did last year. There's no doubt about a me. We sat here and talked about them a lot during their great run to the postseason. But of course, it's annoying hell, but at this point, though, because I am conflicted, and it's, it's I still to this day as I sit here is about their free agency in two days, I'm still conflicted, because Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving going to the nets annoys me, but I don't think that Kevin Durant coming to the Knicks is smart. I just don't think that it is where they are this organism assist. The Knicks anybody. Meet anybody. Meaning needed nothing is no. I don't think they are if Kevin Durant says, no Kyrie irvings going to the nets. We know that this Kevin. Durant went believe that, yes. This Kevin Durant to join him there or not now. So I actually think it'd be better off at this juncture in less. You're telling me, the Kemba Walker somehow wants to join this team or Jewish Valance. Join team right? Go to go to hell kyri, but no, I don't I don't think that they are and quite honestly after the Durant injury. I don't know if that's the worst thing. I mean, that's what I said the morning after you did I said, now that dream is over, and you gotta build with the young guys, it's gonna take longer. It's going to be another twenty win season and you're going to have to suck it up. And you gotta hope that RJ Barrett to do a superstar lot of suck it up. Yeah, I know. But I mean do you disagree with Sixers disagree? With that path now though disagreeing there is no other path. Well like anybody's coming here. But if there, I still think there's a chance I still think I mean from. What you hear there's a greater chance at Durant goes to Brooklyn, then the Knicks? But I still think there's a chance that he wants to the Nick, I think, if the Knicks round up with Kevin Durant. I don't think it's the worst thing in the world because especially with him not playing this year, you get another year of growth and all of a sudden, you've got a, you know, you gotta Mitchell Robinson. Kevin knox. RJ Barrett with another year and for his first year under his belt, and then you all of a sudden ad assuming Durant healthy. And again, I'm going on the basis that I think he's a tireless worker I do think of anybody's going gonna come back from this. It'd be someone like him you at him to the mix, you got something, I think if they signed Kevin Durant. I don't think you're going to come in upset. I didn't come in feeling a little weird about it. But I think you'll be very happy that it's smart, but I would find a way to get excited about and you should I would. But it's that sorta hypocritical, isn't it? I don't I don't normally feel this way about something. But this is just such a weird thing. I mean as you. Ever been in this spot before a guy who I desperately wanted, you know, more than Zion Williamson or winning the lottery was all about. Kevin Durant for me. Right. That was it. He was the guy. And now here I am saying I don't think it's smart design. But then if he signs with I'm going to find a way to get excited injury related though. Yeah. No. I know it's strange. Ms gives you got seventy five eighty percent of the rent, you happy still a hell of a player and I don't hear about the maxima the money who cares. You're going to get a damn good player still. Yeah. But I mean there is the chance that this is the beginning of his breakdown that he's going to be thirty two when he comes right? But you can still get a couple of really good years out of him. And if you do you've got a chance to win a championship in those two years. But who else has got? Yeah. It's wish could fast forward to see what type of player RJ Barrett is wish I could. Because then that would, if you're telling me, the RJ Barrett's superstar and wins rookie of the year, and this guy's a man, then bringing Kevin Durant. Let's go. But if you would have a chance for that, if you're telling me that, that, you know, he's going to have a Kevin Knox year, then the Knicks aren't. Ready for Kevin Durant at seventy five is nothing better on a better team though. I don't know. We don't know. I don't terrible last year. But there's been good players on bad teams. Have he's three of the I mean you remember David lease numbers on those bed. Knicks team guy was unbelievable. I mean, that's a different type of example. But I just just watching them. I just wasn't impressed couple games sort of the end of the year where he was impressive. But it just seemed like he has a lot of maturity ahead of them. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason. Gregg giannotti boomer and geo whom are out today. We back on the Monday to talk some MBA free agency. And of course, NHL free agency because he'll be wanting to talk about that more than just about anything to hell with Colli, Leonard says, boom, it's all about Pinera. That's what's going bread. Man. Yes. Of course, ceelo is with us, and he's gotten update was going on ceelo brought to you by all tracks hair. Surge shampoo. Is it surge? My hair dot. Continental that'll three of us rock and black T shirts that it's almost as if that on purpose to boomer and geo. That's right. The very end of the the wash laundry cycle. It's not because I don't like the t shirt but because it's a little snug on me. These days kind of looks like schmead him. You know probably from a distance. No looks good on you. Well, especially because when we sit here and this has benefit to all of us, and you get your lower-half cut off at the death that helps. Your the love handles situation. All of that is great because when I walked in, and I our when Jerry was in here for the warm up showed. The seat is all the way down low, but he was standing with Al. Is that what you were doing because the mic was way apply ending during the warm-up show, the second part of it. Yes. Okay. So I don't know. Maybe next hour, I'll do a standing up. It looks good on you. Don't be so self conscious their enough as promised the radio. Call of the latest Mets. Bullpen disaster strikes. Pitch swing ally. Drive toward left, McNeil backs up it sales over Ted. It's gone homerun walk off, or change Cica, Edwin gets five with a bottle that I weighed Randazzo WCBS eighty three run shot fumbling. Michael Franco's game-tying, two run blast earlier in the inning Phillies end up with a six three victory to complete a four-game sweep done at citizens Bank park. It's three and eight road trip of five game losing streak in which the Mets blue lead of at least two runs in each of those games. And. This one live on the fan. Certainly seemed to affect Mike's blood pressure instead of coming north on turnpike. Send it south let sixty sixty-nine Mets suit up tomorrow night. This is a disgrace, I can't even believe. It was very worried. He's right. Worked up very right? I heard distress good come in before I picked up aller and talk about how Justin warn ward has been filling in for Gelb. Yeah. Gives us on paternity leave and she started with the carnal series. So here's what she is seeing as she gets do the post in the locker room loss win loss loss win loss loss a couple of wins. Fine, then the brutal loss to the cubs. And then this four-game series with the Phillies. I mean you talk about just a disastrous stretch for her in, by the way, those two wins against the cubs. She was not working those games. Yeah. So one of FOX game the know that she was at a wedding. I think is one real. That's right. Eamon ain't aim manakin. He was covering those. How about that? Over getting it was schedules. The bed look. Good point. However you want. That's good. A two just because it hit me by gone thinking, is it possible? What are we talked about all year with major league baseball this year? What's been a big topic home runs? So my thought is, whether it's the balls being juice. Something on in the atmosphere. The balls are flying out or something up with what the bats. Boomer said brands. All right. Maybe we're seeing this wrong, maybe it's not at win the as fall. Maybe he is by design for the glorious few years of his career. Maybe he's a fly ball pitcher. And he's a victim of the circumstances of whatever going on in baseball pitchers park in Seattle. That what you're saying. Maybe. Yeah. Yeah. Because he's giving up less fly balls than most. I mean he in two thousand seventeen forty six percent of his outward fly balls. So you can't even blame it on that, like, none of his seventeen to year last year. What he's six with is in two thousand seventeen forty six percent of his ball, so you could say, all right. Well, maybe something. But last year was only thirty five what is it this year, thirty nine so it's, it's everything's pretty in line. It's not like he's sixty percent fly ball pitcher. And he's just a victim of the circumstance where we are with the bats in the balls. It's not. But just luck. Every time he gets raked against just look at where these pitches are. He's just middle out over the plate location is unbelievably hit -able. There's nothing about him. That's deceiving. He hangs slider. Throws his fastball at ninety six ninety seven right over the middle of the plate. It's got no movement. If anything goes up into the zone right when you don't want it to. I mean he's just to me with him. It's location and stuff. It hasn't been all that great. Jerry's it. He has. No strikeout pitch. None. So. So I not. Watch the Sean Rodriguez about yesterday if you want to see that so obviously an ugly week for the team all around starting with Sunday's locker room embarrassment in Chicago. But for Mickey Callaway, it goes beyond that, just these four. It was about seven on his road trip that we could've easily won. Then he takes us back even further not just this road. Triffid back into our last home stand and even the road trip before that. So it's a mess. Todd frazier. Who delivered the go ahead? Two run Homer in the top of the nine two seemingly bring the Mets back from the dead instead left to answer for another crushing loss. Still supporting a struggling team feel for everyone. We love him to death. But at the end of the day. Now we lost so. We're gonna keep having his back. He's gonna have each other's back far cry from when he joined the Yankees and they were writing the upswing for the second half. I think you'll get trained. Yeah, you should be first guy to go. I would think him in Zack Wheeler half to get dealt at the deadline or prior to it. I mean, because it's it's time to start thinking about that. I mean, forgive forget about the uphill battle scratch and claw. And we're still if they're serious about anything, it's gotta start today and literally, they have until the all star break, if they don't do anything in the next week, then you're exactly right. Let's start making moves as for Diaz. The numbers aren't good, but he doesn't quite see it that way them, which of a difference last year, I blew four games and this year's kind of in the same problem is four on June twenty knots, crap. You gave up two home runs. All of last year's seven and June twenty four blown saves twenty opportunity really say, well, his translated, which brings me back to what it's much of a difference last year I blew four games and this year's kind of in the same. He was like, well, my raise a little higher, but I'm hoping to work on that. Right. Four nine four three more months of baseball had four blown saves last year across sixty one chances in seventy three appearances this year. It's four blown saves in twenty clarity. ERA is almost five right now for a one point nine six and the wiz sports network. My punch me if I if he comes back, which they're important, but CBS sports over just put up the stat of last year's first-half to this year's for staff and a first half. And it is nine mar here, here it is so last year. First half at twenty nine hundred that was the first I'm sorry, thirty six saves in the first half. Thirty six out of thirty nine with the two five. Yeah. This year. He's sixteen out of twenty with a four nine four and as you said, seven home runs allowed already. So I guess. Well, he did blow. He did blow three saves though, in the but then he blew one the rest of the way. So we'll see what happens. And maybe see his point he's saying he blew three in the first half last year four in the first half year razor, almost it's more than double that, that you can punch me in the face for totally get it Al might hit me when I walk out the studio, and that's fine. But I do like the stat, and I'm not gonna save name Bip. Yes. Belly to really is a good staff. You know the, the batting average for balls and play against him over four fifty right now. Chest. Now that would suggest that, that he's due for some better luck in the second half. That's what that would these terrible. That's very high. Yes. Because they guy puts the bat on the ball in the same. When you're talking about a hitter if he's a historically good hitter and trying to figure out why have an off year. You look at that stat, and you compare it to how hard he's hitting the ball wearing. I'm just saying how many home runs is giving up seven seven home run. Yeah. A closer in the first half, of course that stat is where it is. Yeah. Right. Because of well unless the ball run. Run you wondered about what he had said that it was actually his technically his second blown, say. But the game you're remembering was the meltdown LA against the dodgers, where he gave more runs on five hits that was only that long. Those may twenty-ninth. So I did go back and pull one of the clips. And what he had to say after that instance, today was easily the worst the worst of my career the worst game of my career game of the season for me. I thought through through excellent pitches through strikes during the bowler where I wanted to, and they got me. So very similar to the last hour by through the pitches. I wanted they hit them, but if we're watching it does do the next morning. And if I remember correctly, it was not balls down the middle of the plate. They did hit some. I, I actually had no issue with that. When I remember that, yeah. Still can't happen. We were giving the dodgers credit remember a little bit. And they hit a million home runs this general this one was as bad as a cat now. I looked to see not just in the audio, but I. Went back in the stories to see if he said, like, oh, I got it out of my system. I should be good to go. I didn't see anything like that. Just that it was the worst of his career kind of the dubs. The headline take soon. Yeah, you're a long way to go win. That's right. And they do come back home to host the Braves for three than the Yankees for two, and then these Phillies leading right into the all star break. You got Jacob degrom opposed by Mike sarokin tonight, seven ten first pitch coverage on WCBS eighty did have the city field ceremony yesterday with Jeff wilpon and how he rose in the like about renaming the city field address to forty one Seaver way, of course, in honor of Tom Seaver, and the organization has also commissioned finally a senior statue, which at some point will be displayed out in front of the building the Yankees in London prepping for the Red Sox two game series beginning Saturday afternoon. Giancarlo Stanton, as we know deduct make the trip. He's on the I L again with Brian Cashman is calling a strain in the right knee. He was asked how long Stanton will be out this time I won't say, how long it's going to be without set, but it's, it's going to be more. More than more than two weeks. Course he'd later that August is a good safe landing spot for one Stanton could return. Is that look like a slide you get hurt on? No, I was thinking the same thing I need pops right up doesn't pain. Grab is leg. Nothing strange very strange and then, but also it's a strain in a ligament. Right. The Yankees though. Trauma injure after the game Wednesday? When their Twitter account put out the release the news about that he was going on the it said sprain. And then I guess there was some clarification and Cashman saying, PCL's strain. I mean I'm kind of splitting hairs but it just doesn't look like right. Exactly. It's I guess you never know. But that's a weird to be out another month because of that slide. Yanks chose to replace him with my talk men on this trip. Not Clint Frazier. Here's Cashman's explanation for why this ballpark is a lot of territory. I haven't personally seen it yet. We also build the corners. We'd be best served as having somebody that really can go get the ball did see some still images of the setup today. It is quite expanded, remind you of Oakland. A little bit more. Greg's right. It is little more than Oakland. At least it looks like it from the images. The weirdest injury over got weirdest. Yeah. Like he just strained. His PCL sliding into third. Base too professional baseball player. Like I ran into a pole ones and broke my knee your knee fractured. Oh, gee. Well, my son my senior year of baseball I had back to back. So the first day of practice for the infield on at third base first base and throws the ball across the diamond. It's in the sun. I like an idiot. Put my hand up because I lost thing broke my middle wearing it in the face. Yeah, I guess, but I could've put up the glove hand or. That's the bear reacted broke the finger. So then I got this giant rap on my finger for weeks and weeks, the first day allowed back to practice. We're inside in the gym, because it's pouring outside our coaches hit, and fungoides on the ground in the gym and acting like a jerk, and I'm cutting them off from 'cause I was just happy to be out there, so it was sprinting, and cutting off the ground balls, like jumping up and doing like jeeter stuff. So one guy decides to charge the ground ball is I'm doing this. I don't see him. I run into him in dislocate my shoulder, the first day back and then set there in a sling for the rest of the season doing the book while I did win the coaches award though. Really won the coaches award a big big trophy. That's still in my parents season. Though, Bill, I was I was it was a tough seas. I was right there for the team. And I guess that would be the weirdest injury. I got a which isn't really that weird. It's just unfortunate. Yeah. I mean I try to avoid. Situations. You know, like right now with the softball team. Right. You need. You need a serious injuries. You can just step aside and do the book and get the coaches award from boomer. None of you heard this week. It sounds like I did. That's why we're not gonna play anymore. Now, didn't you tell me the other day that your high school coach came to watch, right? And he said something along the lines of like what was the line? You gave me about you're going to see if you're any better than you weren't right now. You're shedding more light on. And you know what went down? I mean he to these injuries that could have been voided. He didn't have to rely upon. But yet you still won the coaches award and got a trophy. Yeah. I know. Well, he, he knew he knew I was there with moral support interesting. Another one from how Steinbrenner with the media in London yesterday. He knows they've got to address their pitching staff between now and October, even though they already tried to do that during the offseason. I can't tell you how many times I mean starting pitching, I still concerned about it. I was concerned about in the off season. And that's why we through the vast majority of our money towards that and made a good trade treat for James Paxton who obviously, he's been mediocre at best, those far Steinbrenner said they are willing to take on more salary to improve the pitching in advance of the trade deadline starters for next month's all star game announced the Astros lead the way with three Alex bregman, George Springer. Michael brantley. The ladder edging out Aaron judge by less than one percentage point for the final ale outfield spot. That was the tightest race in the voting the Yanks, Gary Sanchez and Jalen, you in the starting lineup a couple of scores. So the rest of the starters, get picked by the manager. It's not a fan vote anymore, right? Roster and the rest of the roster. The reserves now get picked by the coach believe there's a player got to the final Rangpur position. I've read, there's a player vote involved and the Commissioner's office, I believe, has a sane into a serious question because Aaron judge is not played much this year, right? Is the all star? No, you shouldn't be. He's like one of the faces you can't not this year can't hurt which is why you come back to shame. He didn't win it. Because if you want your stars out there, they got plenty of stars. They do. But I mean he's one of the biggest ones out there. That's fair trout will be there, obviously, but the for the, the problem is if it's on merit, and there's also contract, bonuses and stuff for guys who make it. It's just because Aaron judge's face of baseball shouldn't be a good enough reason for him to be there. You know, someone else who aren't at this year, I guess, by the way, the nationally outfield yellow ch-, Bellinger, and kunia is the youngest outfield. An all-star game since I believe nineteen fifty seven when you had Aaron maze and Frank Robinson. That's pretty cool. Little story line to watch art. The all star game rolls around NBA free agency begins Sunday, the Lakers making moves to properly position themselves. They unloaded those three contracts yesterday plus a little help from Anthony Davis with his trade bonus that he is essentially forgoing. So they create a MAC salary slot of thirty two million bucks, so they can sign a max player or spread that over the course of multiple contracts, and LeBron James is giving up that number twenty three Davis who's worn it for his entire career. So you have LeBron Sposato back in the number six he wore in the Olympics and then with the heat, and he's also wearing it for the Space Jam to that. They've started coming. They've started fell Zalm tweeted the pictures of Klay Thompson. Yeah. Klay Thompson was there at the filming in the gym in crutches. That was the joke owner on yesterday was Anthony Davis wave the four million dollars in that, you know, LeBron's production company pregame, a bonus. Yeah. So weird thing you help me kind of do. Jura sat still probably goes on more than you, you would certainly with these guys brands and they're Cummings and stuff. Because there's different ways you can funnel the money and how right talking about that with Tom Brady for years. Right. Did he probably own Gillette at this point? It's definitely going on there for a million dollars forty percent Gillette. Don't tell anybody absolutely women's World Cup the United States against France. Quarterfinals today three eastern star. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti boomer and geo and be free agency this weekend. And the Mets limping home for this. Celebrate Tori weekend. It really is a shame right? I mean it's just it's just a shame. Go sweep 'em what the Braves talking about the Braves sweep in a Mets that, you know, the Mets op we stop with that. Oh my God. What it was about that we landed on. What we decide where did we not lead it and decide yet? So we have June. I find it hard to bet against I shouldn't, but when the grand pitches to meet some stupid, but the other team. Yeah, no, I totally understand in the last time we did that even though we didn't land on the correct score we did end up landing. At least they did win that game. They did. We were right about that. All right. Let's go back to see if there's more lines for this what we have to do to make to make these games. Interesting degrom. Start you still. Here we go. Correct score. We have the let's see first inning. Correct score. Correct score. Here we go. They're finally up there. The lines, we've got the correct scorelines, which one did you want eleven eight Atlanta. Not it's not there a little unusual. The highest they've got eight seven okay I could live with eight seven. Not we picked, but I could say seven is plus ten thousand. This. Timeout. So you're telling me, I put fifty dollars down. We win fifty grand. No. That's not right. No, no, no, no. Ten thousand was. I mean you've been five thousand if you put fifty dollars down you'd win if you put one hundred dollars down you'd win ten thousand. I got I got it. It's one hundred. Okay. Yeah. The back to one and a grand each right. The highest line. There is plus ten thousand from on any of these. That's what we did last. I see I don't I don't like these could be dead immediately. That's the problem that we picked eight seven. You got some room to figure it out. But like the when we picked four nothing even when landed on four nothing at one point. Right. It could've you know if whatever the hell they were playing Dave scored I it could have been right. Right. Quickly, by the way guy into it hundred great idea Mets change their philosophy. They change baseball the closer is now the starter the bullpen starts every game. And then you your starter in the third inning of like. Kind of like. I'm with you. Why the hell not it's extreme going with starters per game. But this is the issue we talk about all the time like when you're a bad team like this, and you're roster. Is this flawed at this point of the year? It's very hard to overturn everything. There's too many obstacles. I know that you want, everybody cotton, and sent out of town or whatever. But like in reality, it's difficult to do that. That's why you know, brody's answer to all of this was was Brooks pounders. We had the and Wilmer font. Right. Had to comb through other organizations. See if there was a guy who could be available that maybe could come here and based on whatever analytics, they were looking at could be better in a Mets uniform than in a raise uniform for funt or whatever the hell Brooks pounders, he was in the minors, actually for another organization, and they traded for that's basically what you. Unless you want to swing some sort of big deal for a for a big time reliever, but that's like an happen either worked. No, you're not gonna do it for the Mets, if you're the Mets now this far out of it anyway. And they just December. Yeah. They did in the guy that got his terrible. He's not good. But it's not reliable. That's what he is compared to what he was supposed to be about as bad as it gets. What what we were expecting to what we have is terrible. Not even close. Right. And I don't like where's where's the path to greatness again, with him because I haven't seen it starts with one, good one good relief appearance. Make it to make it make it eight. That's that's the path. But you, but you said it he when you watch him pay. No, he's not any good. I know. Well doesn't have out pitch. He hangs his breaking ball. Phil Regan's job now. Right. And he's, he's fast ball is on a tee shirt. Looks like it and I'm pretty sure they. Had fond warming up before you give up that home run. My thought is like, that's the next guy now because at three three years, you know, it's going to be one inning out for Diaz Mike, my God. This is what's next. I mean prior to Woolmer fawns last outing, he had strung together, eight actually been it's just the point. That's what we're looking at and the fun disrespect to Wilmer font. I'm sure he's a lovely guy Nuxalk negotiating. Oh, sick and. I mean my God. Yeah, it's, it's an atrocity. So you have this weekend, and there's, there's nothing that's going to happen drastically. I put it this way. I would be very surprised if the if the Mets made a conscious decision to put a negative story over a positive story this weekend. I don't think you're going to see something like Mickey Calloway fired or some guy DFA right before the sixty nine ceremony. And I know that sounds ridiculous. And I know it's all it's about winning. Why would you do this cares about the ceremony? That's the way these teams thing, the PR conscious teams are not going to do something like that could it could there be Mickey Callaway firing after the weekend or at the all star break short. There might be it's not going to happen this weekend. But you know, as far as the changes that, that, that they can make this season. I think it's forget about improving the team now what you have to do is you gotta get rid of the manager and start early on that. And then you gotta stop. Getting rid of guys aren't going to be here and try to build your team up your organization up with deadline deals as sellers, those are the things. Now you have to think about going another law summer really is. It's a luck is now you're now, you're looking at what's the returning on Wheeler. That's what the conversation wanted inches. That's exactly what it is. So, you know, with people call up, we've been talking about what you do to fix it. What it's not it's now it's not fixable. Shame is to if they stayed relevant, you're starting to get. No match was bad the last time out again in Philadelphia. That's fine. But wheelers again seems like he's coming back to where he was last year. And the gras has started again to look a little bit more like last year and. But they're just not relevant. Yep. That's right. Yeah. And Jack Wheeler was very, very good yesterday which to me instead of saying, wow. That's great Zack. Wheeler starting to pitch was grace, but it was good pitch better. So you can get more back for you at a deadline to Graham gives you eight innings tonight, two hits and the Mets take to nothing lead into the ninth you feel comfortable, they're going to win it, though. No. Of course, not Ono. Let's go to Erica on Long Island has happened and Eric morning. You guys doing. Good. Eric, what's up man? My Mets point I wanna just I know you're into the voices and first nations, I think outdo, actually Ambuhl. Them caught some bone telling you, you're saying, okay, we will look into that. I don't think errands quirky is Al he's not. But the same type of voice I can hear it a little bit. Okay. I think I could fix the problems in the Mets bullpen I simply yesterday. I took my boys down to the game. When on a couple of our drive. And they I don't know if you've ever been there by the bullpen in out there in the outfield, you could actually stand right. By the bullpen watch the players warm up you're right before he was the one of next. So there is throwing balls to all the kids. From the bullpen that we're watching one Philly's fan after the next after the, my voice is sitting there and let jerseys no-one getting a single I, I really think we to check out the vision of some of these relive can't Steve strike? Maybe they just growing, maybe they think you know, catches lining up, and they've couple of feet off every Phillies fan, every Phillies jersey, getting stuff. My mentioned. Check the eyesight. I love that. That's always get one of those guys like going through a slump. You get a call her calling up, right? Your vision. Okay. So yeah, it's always an older caller. And you I noticed that you went right to the old man voice, that's exactly what happened. He might need glasses. I remember this is what we're doing. Nineteen Forty-five stinky Schwartz was over twenty one and then all of a sudden they got him by focus, and he went on a ten, but it's more than bifocals and their bullpen. Go to Theresa and mayo pack what's going on to resear- been willing? Down then a pleasure and speak with you today. Yes. Of course, a pleasures all ours. What do you have for us? I'm diehard Mets fan. Born in eighty six my entire life. What really bothers me. It's not the losing season, we survive losing seasons and the fashion of the losing awful. But what's really getting to me as a met fans, where is the sense of urgency from our franchise long season. Theresa. Well, Mickey comes out every day and so nonchalant and co on where we're grinding grinding and Brodie. I have confidence where is the this is unacceptable? We're gonna fix it. Want to win. He said, win now he said, come Gedeh, where's the sense of urgency? The Yankees would never tolerate this. We want our franchise to be as we are. That's all we were asking for. We want them to I totally understand what you're saying, but Brody van wagon, there's no way in his personality and all the other things that he said Theresa, thanks to the other things that he said, in those introductory press conferences around the come get us, and we're going to be favorites are there's been a lot of negativity around here, the last couple of years. And we need to turn that around. Right. So if Brody van wagging now comes out go, we suck this. All of a sudden he's super contradicted himself. Also with Mickey Callaway, I really believe that that, that's who he is. Like the well the whole poor trying to put a positive spin on. It thing is who he is. And then also there's a lot of stuff that he's being told to say as well. It seems like that he's not his own man. And he's really tough spot. I mean it send you take the job you accept the job. And I'm sure he knew the job he was he was signing up for. But some of this stuff is just I'm with Theresa. You want to see him not go out after a reporter, but one time slam and we heard a couple of clip number last week, we played a couple of clips where even we were knowledge that he seemed like he was a little more angry and a little more annoyed. And it was like the angriest we had actually kind of the, the angriest tone. We had heard from him. So I think he's gotten to that point I think after a game like yesterday, and I was curious. I went to the video. I went to Twitter put his name, I wanted to see the press conference. And see how I think your shellshocked new Cape in mind guys, you know, these press conferences, especially with the managers can sometimes be within ten. Twelve minutes of the game ending fifteen minutes after the game's ending sometime sooner than that, if they come right out. And if you're Mickey Callaway, if you're Mickey Callaway, yesterday, you just watched Zack, Wheeler pitchy, wonderful ballgame. You saw the offense struggled, but they were facing a good pitcher too. And then when push came to shove, you got a guy on bass and you got a big hit from Todd Frazier, and they even tacked on a run. So they did what you needed to do. You got a three one lead you go right to the closer now. Because you already had a couple of decent relief appearances from a couple of guys out of the bullpen and within literally what thirty seven pitches that might have taken ten minutes of time. You went from up three one and here's the one thing we don't even mention about it windy as he gave up five runs in the ninth inning. He only got one third of aiding. So now you're making Cal. And they're saying we did everything right today could hit a little bit more. That's fine. It in score twelve runs. I get it but they have a two run lead in the ninth. What else do you want? Well, I also stunned right in to think that if Mickey Callaway or voting van wagon were angry or would make you feel better. I also think is a farce because I also think that ninety percent of the fans aren't paying attention to what Mickey Callaway has to say not game. Probably people hung around a lot of people hung around for that post game eighty degrees and sunny yesterday probably shut that thing off. And that was the end of it. So I mean, I know that you might want to see that. But it's not gonna make you feel better. It doesn't do it. You need results. That's what you need. Exact guys to close games out. That's what you need boomer and geo Jereon for booming this morning on the fancy Bs sports network. It's the mooning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo pudgy ceelo is with us. Those are his words. He said pudgy more pudgy. No, you're less pudgy. Then what? What are we comparing it to you? Even I wear hooded sweatshirts you a couple of weeks ago. You've done it. You've done a better job of drop it a couple. I if I did. It was not a conscious effort might just be because I haven't had time to stuff my face with food. What's the heaviest you've ever wage yourself over two bills? Really? Yeah. I might as I've might be right around there right now. I think I told you guys that recently and you couldn't believe it. I haven't stepped on a month because I'm just too afraid of what the number would being. Yeah, I was like that. But for sure when I graduated college I balloon to about two bills and I'm five twenty two. I'm telling was ready. I was working nights and overnight weekends here, driving back and forth to Quinnipiac, in Connecticut eating crappy college food, not exercising. Yeah. Good times, the best thing that you can do is get on the scale I've decided that in my trying to not gain the weight back. You gotta get on the scale it tells you exactly where you're at. And then if all right, got a bad couple days on their two pounds of you have like a range for yourself. Now I got a couple of good days. It keeps you because if you, if you just tell yourself fine. It's probably a few pounds. I don't think then all of a sudden it's like then getting new clothes and stuff. That's the scale is that depending upon what time of day on it. It's a different you have to be consistent with when you wake I myself two times a week at the same time in the morning when I get up and that's how I do it. See, but again, set schedule routine for me, I'm working all different shifts and hours eaten at different times, waking up at different times. So I don't have any sort of normality only way myself after a bowel movement. That's right. Yeah. He'll bit about yourself as if you really need to be lighter. I mean she's by having I have done that before, like those get on. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Okay. But I if I don't like the number in the morning, and then I come home, and, and go, I'll get back on to see better number. That's clear. That's what on that. Best in the morning, if you have an anything, and you use the bathroom, and you're like, wow, I have nothing in my system. All right. Yeah. Gives me this out a good good reading. Yes. Have you ever actually fought the way the body breaks down food? I've really fascinated about to go. We're not we're not. But we're in the summertime. Now we have all these barbecues. And you see people like it's a hamburger and a hotdog and the macaroni salad. Oh. When you've got that will take some of that get. All right. And everybody's breaking out the ice cream. And you think about the amount of food, you consume where does it go? I think about that, when it's time, I'll go like four days in between what is happening way. Or is this, right? He's had that is that what I have to look forward to get a little older four days. That's insane. You magin I know it stays in your digest. And then deposits fat in different areas. You definitely don't get on a scale of it's been four days. No way what he said in the podcast yesterday talking about the body. He he actually believes he could be a dentist if he just worked with worked with a dentist for a few weeks. Couple became an on the job training. If somebody trains you GO to fill of filling and really was detailed to view for a couple of weeks. You probably do it. I would say a month, I need a month here. Come the dentist calls. Me just need the money to something you little, you know, you don't know what he's guy there is he there. He's there for the faint month. But then you're on your own for one filling. There's a lot of customer his Kramer in him. I would not want to be the I always think about that. There's always someone's absoulutely heart surgery. No question. We ask the doc how nervous or you that I heart surgery to, and how do you like, how do you break through because nobody's going to say, okay, fine. I'll be I'll be the guy, right? It's like anything you do for the first time, you know, he's got a son like anything you do because it's heart surgery could kill the person. I'm sure they have I'm sure they have ways to, you know, put your through simulation or the I mean, where they know okay, you've got everything down, Pat. And then yeah, maybe there's someone observing you that could step in if things go wrong. But what would you do if you're the purse red heart surgery, even if it's a foot surgeon? It doesn't matter. You're in the hospital you're going in for surgery. It's got like those commercials, and they say, well, okay, she's not. Okay. So docu done this before I won. Give me the hell out. I'll do it myself. I'll see myself, I'm telling you as market for this the surgeon analytics, we should. Surgery, reference dot com, and then these it has how many breeze how many deaths how many successful things how long have you been? Racking success rate. Yeah. Yeah. Reviews think about that. Right. Because who in the got it if I if I got forbid need heart surgery at any point, I'm going to ask that doctor, how many surgeries have you done, and how many people have died, I you really think that doctors are going to give you the honest, answer better heels, even allow to why wouldn't I mean, not getting into the specifics of the doctor patient, confidentiality stats, I guess, on a specific patient. Imagine internally, there's some sort of review that goes on where they, they ever strings. Better be better than four hundred. You also have to think about things like that he just come from home and have a big fight with the wife. He's got nothing to lose today night's sleep much. And that's another thing I don't understand a lot of these emergency room doctors, don't they work? Twenty four hour shifts. They work twelve hour. It's, it's twelve on him sometime. I think it's than that, and they take they go, and they take naps on cots Grayton just like you how you live. I'm not operating on somebody though. I'm aware. I don't know. Temperamental, we are from day to day with the schedule. If you're an emergency room doctor six hour shift, max, go get your best. Well, no. Yeah. Yeah. I, I mean I, I think it's twelve to. It's twenty four hours twenty hours. Keeping a guy up doing surgeries for twenty four hours that's asking for Chauvel. I mean, the pilots have an easier schedule, and that they're not allowed to be flying that much. Yeah. That many people needing surgery that need to be on the clock for twenty four hours, a k magic just have. Imagine just have line. Surge. If you're an emergency room, doctor, right? Well, he said searching but yes, I had my gallbladder out I asked the guy how many gallbladder surgeries he did even know is minor surgery. And he said he's done seven today. Seven today on the seven it was great. But then but he also he does like twelve hundred a year is brushing. His teeth pretty much. It's too. Laproscopy. So they don't really cut you open. They just go in with the three things and pull it out the three things, and that's it. That's all right. Yeah. That used to be back in the day to slice all way, open. But now it's just three like Kong's or whatever the pop pop, right? Out here come, let's go to a will Long Beach. What's happening will good morning guys. Our you. Good. What's going on? So I was in Nashville in November, and I ended up getting stitches in my fate. And I'm in the emergency room, and the guy's like, oh, man, I've done stitches since like medical. It was it was three six. It was a small incision, but he was like shaking while doing it stop and be like listen guy can you be confident for, like five minutes? And now it's fine like I don't have a scar or anything like he did a good job. It was it was never acting for both of us men. I would in that in that spot. I would get me somebody. Right your time out. If you need you need a one of these doctors in a foreign country or something like David Ortiz. So I mean I was for me close. Close to a foreign country where I was down there. I had the goal butter attack at the at the bowl game. Yeah, you had to done down there like didn't. Okay. So that was they wanted me to and the in the pit football team. Doctors were calling me as I was in the hospital, whatever you do get out of. The surgery get you back to Pittsburgh, and you're going to be okay. Thank God the doctor it was he, he rolled up to the bed. And after realize that I had to horrible, gallstones, and everything and the football game, it was old miss and hit at the whatever the B B C compass bowl. Right. And he's watching the game as he's giving me the diagnosis, and he would like he'd get distracted by the game. So we got the results back old test. We did and what without was. My that kid. So you freshman feel my and he's got a he's gone a future on him anyway. So what we're going to have to do is all it is. I don't mind you tell me what the hell's wrong with my wife had my second son. It was the day film won the master's and doctor was into the golf as much as I was, and you're in the hospital room for a long time, so we had it on. And at one point my wife hadn't had the head Nedim yet. She's like, guys can we focus on the kids? Oh man. And then as has walking out of that hospital. There's so many great stories from this experience as a mocking out of the hospital. Someone's coming into the emergency room and the security guard says to the guy just so you know, we got new policy now. No guns. And the guy goes this is true story. Guy goes oh really change oppose it. Thanks for letting me know. Paints, walks vacuums. Call. At some point, you are allowing guns in the emergency room. He's like, yeah. No new policies sucks for everybody. Different world. I never been down there. Maybe I'll never go. I my mind was totally blown on all sorts of pain meds. So this was just like fantasy world. That was happening. We get this cleared up real quick. Yeah. Georgia, New Jersey. What's up man? Hey, what's up guy? Fan my name's George robotic journal surgeon at Hackensack valley hospital, north jersey. Okay. Guys every day. I'm away into work, and I've seen we take twenty four hours ER, call ships told you for, for general surgery, you're not operating consistently over. Let's twenty four hours, but you are on call and you could be called in any minute, especially at a busy off like Hackensack, but you are dodgers take twelve hour shifts, it's just basically a you know, based on the money game, doctors pretty expensive the pace have shorter shift. You gotta hire more doctors to cover those hours. Interesting take around ender is also take twelve hour shifts as well my sister's nurse. So no, so pretty grueling hours nonstop and you get a half an hour breaking between for them. So it's pretty tough. You know, a lot of burnout those areas. So when do you have you ever had to perform, a very serious surgery, where you're just on fumes and you feel like man, I am not at my best, but I have to do this, that's you know, so we do five years of residency and one year or two years of. Fellowship training, some specialty. So we're trained operate more that tired as a resident you work eighty hours a week max by law. You do go over that off the record many times. It's just something that, you know you get trained for because you have to be able to operate on somebody a high risk situation at any minute of the day, you know, this is somebody's life in your hands. The adrenaline kicks in into so what is your twelve hours on twelve hours on call? Yeah. Well, that's where we are. Just rush journal, surgeons, we take emergency room. Call around three three days a month. And when you're on call y'all call for seven AM to seventy and the next day, I think what he's saying he's not there. You're not physically there. You're on call if you're doing. Doctors were there for twenty four hours. So if they're trauma surgeon, obviously, you have to stay in the hospital because somebody comes in bid, massive hemorrhage. You have a few seconds to say, what would your Giro cert- general surgeons like goal bladders app appendectomies? You know, the owner takes an hour to get set up anyway. So we're all within twenty minutes away. You get called Damian where there within twenty minutes, what, what was your first surgery? And did you tell the guy who you are offering ally? This is my surgery. Well, you know, it's funny, so in residency us over a thousand surgeries you graduate with a minimum of seven fifty. You don't get seven fifty. You can get certified, you don't you don't get certified to be general surgeon. So I use those numbers beginning thing. Hey, listen. I just graduated residency. My first cases an appendectomy. Thank God, the easiest case over for general surgeon, but I was the most nervous you can be, you know, even though I done this surgery around two hundred times my residency in is, you know it's just because you're trained. Up until that moment. There's so many in the room watching you and helping you and attending, you're never by yourself as resident, but when you're by yourself, the first time it really is you really get to see what person you are. And it's scary. It really is. Sure. That's what you do five years of residency, and fellowship. And you graduate with, you know, sixteen hundred surgeries under your bell, and, and, you know, and if you're not good, you don't graduate, you know, people do get fire for residency. Exactly. Did you tell that person afterwards like my hoof got my first one? Sometimes I end all third and YouTube last night joke, you know. You know, I'm thirty five years old. I looked pretty young for my age to the most common question. Get is like you said GIO. I mean, these have you done, you know, and I get a little insulted is. Okay. I'm here. You can see me. You know, I'm board certified, but I agree with them. You know, I would be scared to there's a lot of like any other field. There's good people. Good. What they do people battle with do. And it's tough for a patient to know if you're good or bad. If you don't have somebody telling them like a referral or something. Hey, this surgeons good that surgeons ban. Is there someone in the hospital, that's known as the worst surgeon? And when you see a patient go to that guy's room, you know, is there like you guys talk amongst don't answer that question. I'm gonna plead the fifth on ROY. Yes. Then. At the new radio station. Other people that suck. You'll this is what I'm saying. Plot. I like I like to apply every day office dynamics to this high risk life, thing like that to me is interesting, right? Like, like, like Dr Ted's going to do another appendectomy, remember the land that you don't like I'm sure that you guys talk like that in the break room, and I would assume actually do talk to each other. You know, we don't like to gossip behind the backs of their likelihood. But there is every week we do a conference. Call mortality immobility conference, basically, all the complications, the mole the surgeries and a hospital that week are reviewed be picked the top three and, and we go over the complication, and why did it happen? What did wrong what he's gonna do wrong? You know, and it's not like a blink game has been a learning experience, and that is a quality quality control thing. So. Jordan was a great call. It was a great cool. He ended all Jerry's question. God's stressed out to axe though man that job. Gosh, they don't know what's going to happen any day. You imagine doing something sixteen hundred times and still being nervous. Ten Bennell allowed to do it on your own yet. Right. Right. And, and rightfully so. Like you said, you wanna make sure that that person is, you know, there's very few questions. I could not imagine in my wildest dream, of course, not the equivalent would be doing sixteen hundred shows with boomer. And then all of a sudden a solo show. Yeah. Someone's life doesn't someone's life. When my takes. That's my point. You would think you're an expert in anything you do. But this is so much more high risk, right? It's different. Should we should we bring ceelo back for some stuff next segment? We'll do that. I'm going to read my sponsor, real quick going anywhere. It doesn't matter. You're just gonna do the update come next hour segment. Okay. Next. We'll hang out. We'll tease the sponsor. A weird. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo Jerry in four boomer this morning. So see was talking about this London trip for the Yankees and Red Sox and mention Decky Matsui was on the trip and popped in my head this thing from like eleven years ago, where Decky Matsui announced he was getting married and he drew a picture of his fiancee to show, the press. I thought that that was very hard warming that he would do that. Not just show a picture of her, but actually draw picture with his artistic abilities that very charming. So I thought, why don't we do that for our significant others? Wanna we draw a picture for them? I'm sure that they would appreciate it. So we we've gone ahead and, and done that. So we will tweet these out for the radio audience as well. But just for CBS sports network, we will unveil them a Jerry. Why don't you go first your lovely wife? Kim. The here is the picture that you drew, you probably can't see now they will those zoom in on it on CBS sports network. They will. Or zoom out out. One, they will figure that out. But yours looks like so if I could describe it, it's a, it's a stick figure. You really did draw stick figure a tiny stick, and draw they're trying to trying to in here. They're trying to get it is there, there is no, no movie. He's got two strands of hair a stick figure and a smile. Always very thin. So. Yeah. When stick figure all right, right. Very thin. Right. Very very much in shape. All right. So here is here, is my, my wife, Jean that I've done. I've drawn for hope she appreciates this. So it's up there. How would you describe this, Jerry? What do described described yours? So not like your wife. That's how it would just cry that. So they hope having met her now. That's not. It looks like something in a book, a cartoon book could try and, and Al. Let's see. Let's see your Gino. Would you have? That say. True like a close up almost like a, what would be a high school yearbook photo. I drew. She's not gonna be happy I hadn't hoped. She doesn't have this on right does look like a female. Thank you say that. Yeah. But we're knows is anything like that. No, I would not come up with that. I'm not sure. A second drawing where I gave her teeth and it just did not go, so do not go. Well. I will say, even all looks nothing like Gina, your genome. None of us do. But, but that that's the best drawing of the three, I would have to admit, right? Well, it's, it's a good attempt yet all the. I don't know what that is. Fliegelman did one as well. But I think he just copied my drawing really. I stole some idea, I didn't know we were allowed to stick figures. I learned in school was how to draw a humid face. So if I had to draw GO, or Jerry or Al, it would look exactly like this minus to hammer. They're put it up. You could see how the faces as generic as it gets, and I added hair paid tiller and how to draw then. No, I mean like in schools you paid for school public school. Oh, hey for school college. Yeah. You pay for. Oh, baby. I got a lot more got a lot more respect for Duckie Matsui today than I ever did before because his drawing was really nice like in, you know, that looks exactly like his wife held by of police sketch, if you were looking for that woman based on might picture, you would find her. Yeah, that's one thing I had I had zero talent for is drawing. Hitting the cops would never pick up Geos wife with that. You're on the pick up a clown. Lips are gigantic. The noses gigantic eyelashes are straight up and down. Air sprouting out of the middle. Some part. Let's like Melissa rivers. Jio. You think you're bad. I want had an art teacher in the fourth grade. Tried to fail me because she didn't believe any kid could be that bad at drawing. I'm there, mentally there, I. Oh my goodness. All right. So we will we tweet those out for people who are if you could just draw underneath there, who who it is. Okay. Jerry you as well. So then I can put them all in one tweet on just put geo on marks. You know. All right. Very good. And yes, our significant others do not look, anything all just so you don't you're gonna present that to her when, you know, I think she'd appreciate you think she, you know, it's a nice little gesture, I've received zero tech. So I'm in the clear. Yeah, I haven't gotten any either, but that doesn't mean that she's not stewing there could still be a still that's happening, right? I'll get it later. All right. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six number to join the show NBA free agency all the rumors are. So this is where guys are expected to end up. All right. This is where they are expected to land as we sit here right now. Kemba Walker to the Celtics. That's the hot rumor Cairo Irving, of course, still to the nets Kevin Durant, most likely the odds on favourite still the nets there. Jimmy Butler sign and trade to the Houston Rockets that's going to happen. I think that's could be the most. That's the thing I've heard the most right? Has it? I mean, I saw that the other day. I've seen nothing since that with the rockets trying to shop cappella, and Gordon, who's a PJ Tucker. I guess the other one, but I've seen nothing since I don't know, I suppose I don't know if you've seen anything progress on that. So I guess, I guess rockets Sixers for four fair. So those are are the big. One's leonard. I still think two year deal to the Toronto Raptors. However, the Lakers and the clippers are involved, the Knicks are not involved, so they're not even gonna meet with him doesn't they're trying to. But I mean, I think that he's like, don't even waste your time a waste. My time he's meeting three teams out now lay. So he's meeting the Lakers, the clippers end Toronto. I guess out all out now LA, but there's another example, too, though, with everything you're saying when we discuss coming to the Knicks playing at the garden and the mecca and all that it doesn't have the same cafe at it just doesn't because if you're telling me, the Knicks can't even get a meeting, none of means anything anymore. It's about the dollars. And can they win? And who they can bring. I don't think it matters where they play to a point. I mean, I'm not gonna go in a lot of cases. You've probably going to Memphis, but I'm saying if it's a decent market. Good building, and you got a good team there in and you can pay them. Yeah. Just got a text. Okay. Just you. You too. Damn it. She goes, I just got in a car and heard the drawing. You gotta send it to me. No, no. You don't. Yeah. Well, if we put all of them up together, maybe then, then she'll see how everybody's terrible and maybe. That's what I'll do. That's the wheel do. Yeah. And as far as the Nixon, the cash eighth thing, if they had a better roster if they were further along in there rebuild, then I think they would have had an advantage. But the problem is they're so far behind an advantage, though. You think I know the nets they would have. I don't. Yeah. I don't see I think that if the Knicks the nets had the exact same year similar roster build that they would have the advantage of signing free agents. That's no. That's different though. That's different. Now, you're now you're talking about if they're in if they're good. Well, that's what I'm saying that you mentioned, if they are where they are, and they could be. Misunderstood? Yeah. I but because they're so far behind these other teams in their builds. Yeah. Even considering what if you bring to max players over with RJ, Barrett and Kevin Knox? And Mitchell Robbins, aren't they automatically fifty? Sixty one team man, I don't know. I would hope. First of all, I mean fifty chore sixties crazy. I there I mean it didn't Carmelo. They win fifty five games with Carmelo. Sure. But if I think about this, we haven't seen RJ Barry play in the NBA my know that. But I am disappointing year. And Mitchell Robinson had had a good rookie taking the leap of faith that RJ baritone to be great because I really do think he's going to be, but you also have to remember to that Derain injury changed all of this, because Durant, not coming over here. Healthy, I get it. But no one else is interested in a meeting. Well, you know why? You don't think of Leonard was interested in signing with the Knicks. He couldn't get another top tier guy to come with them. But want. But here's the co every you gotta take every case individually, why would Leonard ever touch the Knicks because he makes them great quickly. But he can do that anywhere. He wants it. Exactly. My point. So if the mecca and the garden and the Knicks are this big draw. No, no that they're not because they're so. Right. That stuff. Doesn't matter to these guys at that stage of my point, though. I know but I think we're agreeing. But we're arguing for some reason if the Knicks were in the Knicks were in a better place. I do think they'd be more attractive in those things would count. But those things don't count when their question doesn't Kowa Leonard, and another top tier guy put them there, if not, what the hell is this about them? But there's, but there's still better rosters out there already where they could be better than the Knicks would that. In that went there. Hey, healthy. Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving come to the Knicks right now as constituted are they any worse than anybody else in this league? They jump right to the top Eastern Conference as the team to beat yet, but they could be a better basketball team if they went in several different places. And that's, that's my point is that, that, that they could they look at the current roster and where the team is. And they could be better than they would be if they went to the Knicks. What roster? What roster are you going to go to if you are again, I'm coming back to the argument because this was the conversation before the injury, healthy, Kevin Durant, with Kyrie Irving Goto, the Knicks with the roster as constituted because they had all these teams got to clear cap space to be able to bring on these max contracts, right? What difference does it make if kyri and a healthy Durant, make the Knicks the top team in the east automats? What the hell see what the difference is that you could join a team that went to the talking strictly basketball you could join a team that went to the playoffs last year with their core. Or you could join a team that won seventeen games core. The nets went to the playoffs last year. I understand that my point is doesn't the notion that the garden puts thing Knicks over the top all, but not. But I'd like to see it on a more of an even playing field is all I'm saying. I do think that, that where they are right now is, is scary to free agents as opposed to teams that, that won't completely be relying on them to, to save them. They've already got a coal even a free agents know, like the whole world knows they tanked in just to get into a proper position to make these moves. Yeah. Listen. I don't think it's much of a draws. I'd like it to be. But I do believe I stand by the fact that I do believe if this were if we had like a year, RJ Barrett as a superstar, and they were competitive team. And they put together really good year they'd be they would be more attractive than it is right now. I. That's what I believe, because I think that they there has to be some sort of something like the garden and all that stuff can't supersede how barren the Knicks roster is. Now, if you put every roster on an even playing field might be a little bit more of a draw than other. Right. But again, that's the point they did this so that they could go out and get two or three of these guys. Yeah. So why are they not lining up to come sign here because? Because you can't have both. Yeah, I know. But this, this is not that now they're clearly not ready clearly, not ready for this and they should have been and maybe Durant, if he were healthy would change some things, I don't know 'cause you gotta remember to now Durant hit the injury and him rehabbing. I think those have a factor on this if he had come over healthy next year with Kyrie Irving. Yeah, but now at least he's going to have some time if he stays with Golden State or goes to the nets, where that team can compete without him. And when he joins them that there could be pretty good. He can put him over the top. This is stuff we talking about, as opposed to the Knicks where they're really bad, and then he joins him. And he's gotta be the savior. So I think the injury factored into this as well. You wanna go to strong of a roster as you can. If you're Kevin richest seems like no one wants to team up and play in New York. Yeah. For the Knicks. I'm saying, yeah. I would agree with that. The only shot the jihad was Durant, because Durant for some crazy reason wanted to come. Early. Right. That was the only shot that you had supposedly. I don't even know what I believe any more. There must have been some conversations, 'cause his, his business guy, an age in rich climate. He's in New York. I in a big Knicks fan to the had to be something there. Oh, I'm sure there was. But I do think, as we have said many a time that I think Kevin Durant's thoughts change daily. Yeah. Yeah. He is. Someone who he's vacillated, as they say, it's the morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo summer Friday, big weekend. Ed ninety degrees in the city today, which is tremendous hopefully getting out of the city somewhere where there's water and beaches and sand and all that great stuff. We know you will. Oh, yes. Of course was out there yesterday. You look in very tan. That's for sure. Gotta be men this time of year. Got to be out there. Zayn Terry looks very ten to. He's always. He's been tainted came back from the Bahamas. Oh, that's what it was not being right. To base. Hat coach, most of everything faces very ten most of the time out there. I mean, everyday this, now you're going to be a bring the newborn to the beach type of guy or is that too much the newborn now? Yeah. You know, my, my parents specifically my dad are huge beach people. So I was by association, a beach person growing hours, but it for whatever reason it's not my favorite place. I don't know something about the crowds and I don't like the STAN when I'm when it's wet when I get wet with this. So, so bottom line is my son, though. My three year old loves it. He goes with my parents. All my dad loves taking him. So he'll definitely take them a lot this summer. But the infant, not a shot hit his lock. We drove to Florida when my little guy was two months old, and we thought we were nuts, and it could not have been easier. It was not. They sleep the whole. Yeah. It was not hard story, Jerry tells about raising your kids is the simplest thing easy. You got the easy lot hit the mother. But he was his new. Well, his first year, he didn't sleep at all that he's not sleater but I mean, my wife was a zombie for a year. Right. That is right. You have mentioned that, but outside of that you're like oh, yeah. We did this great. We flew here that no trouble kids. We both parents, we kicked it around for awhile do we, it's kind of more onic, actually, and the hell with it if it's no good. We'll turn on home. Yeah. And was a piece of cake, you know what that, that is? Of course, you have to be safe and cautious plan everything out. But the more and more, I'm realizing this to hell with it is the best way to try. Let's start right? What are we were worse? They can happen. It doesn't go. We go home to hell with it. Let's go. But what if you get all the way to like North Carolina before it goes bed, while so okay funny? Since we drove and we had him with us. And he was only two months old at the time we weren't gonna go anytime I've driven the Florida generally straight through let's leave it through leave at three thirty in the morning and get there by six thirty night. Good to go, perhaps, but once you're there, it's fine. Oh, well, yeah, but I mean, I understand you're stopping for bathroom break, but you're not sleeping go the bathroom when you stop for guests I get it sleeping unless you're switching with your wife, and she's driving some and you're driving this case, we knew we had to stop because of him fine. And it will break out anew pack and play. I've never put together right before the first five hotels we stop at Novi consi. We end up at just a dumpy hotel somewhere in South Carolina. I want to say he was great. And all of a sudden, now, he's fidgeting wants to go to sleep, and I can't put the stamp that of the box, right? No good to have the instruction manual. Yeah. Still wasn't helping. I mean, they're they are finicky those things, but you can once you. Learn figured out there easy. I wouldn't the hell. And then, breaking it back down very strange. It's Ken be. But now that was that was the biggest issue we had and woke up the next day we were fine. Yeah. Yeah. Must be nice. Jerry everything worked out for, you know, everything's. All right. See what's going on. I brought to you by the Ray Katina auto group test drive, the new twenty nineteen mini Cooper, countryman, all four at many mom and many of Westchester where resetting the latest Mets bullpen disaster. Phillies. Gary cohn. Wia four-game sweep five runs in the ninth of Edwin d as you served up homers to cigar and Michael Franco he's done. He's shot bullpen shot team shot manages shot. The pitching strategist who the hell knows what he doesn't inverse place. I know I played a lot today. But I mean so much, good stifle that, that's one thing about doing shows at that time is the instant reaction. You know, I always thought beningo at night would be great. Well, yeah. Well, he there was a few times, he'd get that opportunity on the over. I meant when you come on at ten thirty. Right, right. Rush off the game. Yeah. And Mike's had them over the years. I the Saint John's blown call on the biggies tournament over that one. We against Rutgers. I think it was right. Wasn't it Rutgers and Saint John's, I think with the referee. And yeah, that was an epic one. There's been some met rance over the years. I mean, there's just it's like you said the instant reaction is great. And then we did hear this one earlier, but one more time didn't care for one of Micky Calloway's postgame answers either blown four of his last eight save opportunities. How do you assess what you're seeing from him right now? Well, you know last night, it was electric on. So remember Joe and Evan came on right after that opt in disaster in twenty fifteen with Tara on. I was at that game I left and got home and saw the end of it. And they came on after that. And that was a total and utter on during two. That's right. Because the laze. Yes, that is. Think about all this. Right. Because they were on the other radio station at time. Right. They weren't. Yes, it was. So they were watching it while they were on the air, and that I remember that probably ended five six o'clock as their shift was probably ending 'cause again game and it was brutal. And the fact that it was the Padres wasn't it? Yeah. They play. Terrible. So often the Maki cod, and Mike's reaction to that. There was a little bit more. You can't lose this game. They're games. You cannot lose as a team there will games. You can not lose. This was absolutely one of them. I've never seen him talk for so long without the glasses on because the glasses came off early in the ran, he's holding them. And then by the time he gets the end of it. He clearly throws them at the at the television, which was was a pretty cool seeing. So another meltdown for the Mets. Bullpen fifth straight game, which they've blown a multi run leads the first time it's happened in the big league since twenty eleven of course, the Mets were the last team to do it as well. They had one hit through. Eight innings it came from Zack Wheeler, they're down one nothing in the nine. Todd Frazier hits the go ahead to run Homer insurance run as well. So they got to run lead. They hand the ball, the as yet six seven do up for the Phillies, and he couldn't get it done as these rallies often do it started with a wall, trying to go the best, which is that I could seem that they were just like prepared for every pitch. Just a bad day for me. And. It's a home runs came around, we lost through his interpreter and the final pitch to cigar supposed to be outside. He misses over the inner the inner half at the plate. And you just hit a line drive missile into the left-field seats. So it's a three and eight road trip. They've got the Braves in for three then the Yankees for two. And then the Phillies again leading right into the all star break last one here from Mike and apparent wind goes to a crushing law was going to propel them at least to have a have a hot beast. They come home now for this sixty nine reunion. The sixty-nine teams got a better chance than they do. They are a dead caucus. So there you go. You can check out the dead carcass tonight. They do. At least Jacob degrom has the bone handedly six or seven innings, you hope shirt, Friday. Hey, you go Mike zero could gets the ball for Atlanta. Seven ten first pitch coverage on WCBS eight eighty it is the sixty nine championship weekend. Yet, the Tom Seaver ceremony yesterday city field address, now, officially renamed to forty one Seaver way, and the organization has commissioned that safer statue that we've been talking about seemingly for years, point soon, time frame fort, they did not offer a timeframe, but it is in the works, and there was sort of a, I guess, a preview of what it's going to look like and it did actually look pretty cool legit, this more finished product time in September. When there's no one going to the ball, more people out there. Good point mentioned that they've got the Yankees on this home stand right now. The Yanks are in London getting set for this special two game series with the Red Sox, which begins Saturday afternoon as we know Giancarlo Stanton, not part of the trip. He's back on the injured list. It's a strain in the right knee Brian Cashman with the media yesterday over there. In london. What kind of return timeframe? Are we looking? We're wheels up going this way. So I think we'll get a better feel in the coming weeks, about timeframe, rather not put a time line. They get busted if I get it wrong. So then one of the reporters followed up asked if there's any time in July that return could be realistic. I would say it's safer to look into August. I wouldn't. I don't want to say it's unlikely July, but sweet spot would be August, is in terms of not getting birth or you're not gonna see him for a while. Pretty much Mike talk is on this trip. Right. That's what I mean. Yeah. Right. Last year they needed him at for a while because judge was out and he did he carry them in the middle of the season. If you remember former MVP in his prime home runs and hundred and twenty-five now with that line of glacier towards is betting eighth. So Clint Frazier is not on the trip Cashman talked about the dynamics of the field. The dimensions there's a lot of foul territory. They wanted the guy who could play all three outfield spots and run around a little bit more than Frazier does, we know he has some defensive liabilities so he continues to work for AAA grant where he's just four for twenty eight since he was sent down how Steinbrenner briefly with the media yesterday willing to take on more salary to improve the pitching staff in advance at the trade deadline is always we're going to be we're going to be looking at everything in July and whatever. We're going to consider more. Can you do a house time runner talks? High up talk of. Yeah. I haven't tried very, very quick. He doesn't he didn't speak enough for me to be able to. All right. Latch onto it so much different than his brother was, when new one hang used to be in front of his. Detaining it was a little strange just one more time with the all star game just because there are couple Yankees involve the starters announced for next month whereas in Cleveland right around Cleveland. Yeah, got Gary Sanchez and DJ LeMay for the Yanks in the starting lineup. Aaron judge just missed out. He finished less than one percentage point short of Michael Brantley who claimed the final outfield spot for the American League. He's one of three Astros who will start in that game. Alex bregman and George Springer the others the Mets have no starters. We'll see about the reserves when they get released over the weekend. NBA free agency coming up son wanted to ask you guys you may have said this. I know you were breaking down the different guys where they may end up. Do you think right away Sunday at six somebody's gonna have right out of the gate? So you expect any initial minutes that's going to be, that's done, which tells you that there's obviously tampering that goes on all the time. I mean, everybody thought that I think it's everybody's saying, I can only trust the wo- ges in the Stephen, as in the sham then surely. Right. But I'm saying right as it opens the whatever they call it moratorium, or, you know, I think that there is, of course, there's been all go. What from what do you mean? Diary, shawn. You good. Good, basically. Yeah. Well, I think that some of these moves that the nets have made it's because they've gotten some sort of verbal commitment for agent. Yeah. So I, I think that there's a chance that he gets drawn to the Lakers and maybe LeBron says, hey, we could do this again with another champion, they opened up that others max lot to how much these guys talk amongst one. Another more has nothing to do with the or the team. It's LeBron possibly just texting with Kyrie. Who knows that would be the one thing if he wants to nother. Go round, because he felt like there was unfinished business. They were LeBron. And he laughed prematurely. And now it's LA it's the Lakers. Anthony davis. Maybe but I don't think so. I think that this nets thing is he made up his mind. I mean there is so much talk about him. Joining the nets it just it can't be lives. It can't be smoke smoke to fire. I guess my question was using, it's it is a seems like you believe, not uniting. I dunno. I think so. I mean, have you heard otherwise I have no. But who knows. I mean who knows how real people who claim to know what Kawais gonna deal case? The two of us one of these other organizations. What the hell is the point? I know that a lot. NBA. Let's young team the second. No one wants to go there. Right. Right. I mean, does anybody wanna go to Memphis does anybody wanna go sign and plane Minnesota Charlotte? Well, Minnesota, I mean they put together some, some talent out there didn't work out to capitalize draft them in their young and they're under control. Only way this saying when these free eight when these big players become free agents. There's a handful of places they wanna go. And that's what the pelicans are being wanna go sign in Sacramento. Or you get traded. There were drafted there. Right. I mean, if you're one of those organizations, you have to do with the warriors, why it's the only way which you said in state, you know years ago, and now you get enough guys in there. And then you have to capitalize on while they're in their prime and you have them under contract. So and this by the way you brought up just look at the moves the nets have made. And this is where the NBA confuses me because these trades that we all talk about that are done. Technically aren't until whatever jarring fifth or six so and crap goes and gets a reservoir. D y right. Does that affect the? Deal at all. I don't know. Can't can't guarantee me feeling heavily not official yet, but I think that that's, that's a trade that's made and paperwork submitted Jenny at general submitting the league doesn't doesn't doesn't recognize it as a fishing. But you can't go back in and I don't know very question. I don't know either. But I think we would have heard by night. I was assuming that, that trade is done. Okay. You all right though in one story. I did see us did say nets Brooklyn's, Allan crab. And then it said soon to be of the hawks Atlanta. Right. Rate or something. Yeah. Complicated women's World Cup today. You got the United States against France in the quarter-finals a match that begins at three eastern now. We get to moment of the day brought to you by Resorts World casino in queens for six thousand games. This is how NYC roles. Our big surgeon talk earlier. We heard from what was his name, George, I believe on the line for a while. But we learned from jeez, that the general surgeons down in Alabama, maybe not the most professional individuals the doctor it was where he, he rolled up to the bed. And after realized that I had to horrible, gallstones, and everything and the football game, it was old miss and fit at the whatever the B, B BB compass bowl. Right. And he's watching the game as he's giving me the diagnosis, and he would like he'd get distracted by the game. He's ex. So we got the results back old test. We did and what without was. My look at that kid, so you freshman. He's got a he's got a future on him anyway. So what we're going to have to do is all areas. Damn might. And I'm like you tell me what the hell's wrong with certain parts of this country that I've never experienced and it's like a whole a whole different country stories like that. I've told you to riverbottom dirt part of that story, right? No, I never really knew that you had experienced in Alabama. This is the first time I heard about. I mean, I've heard of the goal gallbladder. I don't know what you're doing home back on me man that VIN Scully story from a couple of weeks ago. I'd never heard if I'm repeating myself, sometimes I, I don't know if I'm repeating myself. I apologize to those who have heard this before Jerry works here, every he would remember, if you've told it all right. So I go down have his unbelievable steak dinner at Shula's down there in Birmingham middle of the night. I'm just it's horrible. The feeling that I have stabbed in the stomach minimum, like, all right? Something's, it'll be fine. Whatever I might need some next day. I wake up on the way to the stadium in this, like rickety hotel shuttle, and it's getting worse and worse and worse. And I'm trying to tough through it. It'll be fine. It'll go away. And finally, when I get to the stadium, I'm doubling. Over. And I'm thinking that I'm having a heart attack the way to feels. Right. So we've got an eighty five year old engineer all right on these broadcasts. So I go, I said, someone's gotta call down and say that I need I need an ambulance guide something's going on. It's not it's not getting better. So the team doctors here, this that someone in the radio booth needed an ambulance. So the guy's name was Mel check the engineers, six doctors run-up trainers ago. Now Mel Mel sitting there hoc installed on what. The problem. Then they we'll me added there on a stretcher while into like through the parking lot outside of the stadium and everything and stretcher into the ambulance. So I get into the and the EMT's just sitting there looking at me as abso- on a stretcher, and he goes stomach problem. Yes. Ever drink. Riverbottom dirt. I said, what? Those, my mama when she had stomach problems. She goes scoop up glass, or riverbottom dirt, and drink it and she'd be. Okay. So riverbottom dirt. I said, what is that? Some sort of alcoholic drink a concoction goes notes mode. So I looked at him and I said, I swear to God if you give me a glass of mud right now in this, ambulance, I'm going to kill you. Okay. All right. I mean I don't know. You were living my cousin Vinny. This is the tires Alabama mood. Yeah. So that was tell you how old are you? I'm thirty seven. Well, you've got gout. I know I had a goal. In alabama. I'm good. Now, though, I said, you've lived some interesting circumcise retiring from softball because you got hurt again. Two years. Right now, though I'm healthy melt, or now that I've been, I just don't know more physical, active. That's the end of that. Okay.

I agree with what you did. I agree with what you did. Take in stephen matt's. It's out when you did now. I like the fact that he hit for himself but then he was taken out no but with the combination of the inning before where it was three hard hit balls to factor all the right he's coming up. He did run the bases and lugo with the lead who has been fun nominal old for the mets this year. I didn't have a problem with it and guess what set lugo finally spit up on himself. It's going to happen to all the relievers so salvage it today for crying out loud salvage with marcus stroman. This is why you got the guy big one down there. Do not get swept in atlanta good morning any boomer how are you. I'm doing all right little down because of that performance last night but i'm right with you bro. I don't want to hear anybody conan here in shuttle stephen mats and the only through seventy nine pitches. I mean if you are watching that game last night. I just kinda felt like stephen. Mattis was just hanging on hanging on hanging on and i know we only throw seventy nine pitches because they were swinging swinging atom sure we're hitting them. Hard and donaldson was coming up so i any person that calls in this morning plenty of them i don't care. I don't want to hear for it yep. <hes> he was protecting matt's he was trying to protect this team. He wanted to win and he shot any basically shot his gun immediately. Put lugo in a high leverage situation at lugo pooped the bed. Although he wasn't even hit that hard it was it was it was just it was the walk he basically did not. I want to give donaldson anything. They hit me walks next thing the whole thing kind of unravels onset logan. He's been great for us so i'm not i swear to god and i even said this out the bullpen this morning when i came minia as if i hear anybody in here talking about how they should've left stephen madsen after all thrown seventy nine pitches you morons are not watching again. We're not watching because you're going to be plenty of people. Call this morning and on top of all of that. You don't know who the pitcher on the mound is stephen match. The fact that let's not gave you last night was great. That's not jacob degrom. That's not noah syndergaard zach. We're in. That's not marcus stroman this. This is like when he pitches which is a home. He's a little bit different of a pitcher. There's no question about it. Maybe it's a little bit more locked. Maybe a couple of calls that it would not get on the road but last night i just sitting there like like oh my god there was the second inning. I'm thinking is he going to get out of this right and luckily he did and and really the difference between these two teams. I hate to say it even even though the braves at the end of the game almost blew the game <hes> because of mistakes and a narrow kierra that loaded the bases but you know if you don't have your guys conforto and alonzo rakia the ball like they were in the midst of that fifteen out of seventeen. You're going to have the team that we saw last night and quite frankly you know. They got ruben too hot at second base. They can't even turn a basic devil. Play and ronnie was talking about last night so those are the place to have to make against the good teams and i. I don't think it's ruben to hottest faltas more. What's his name. Rosario is fault where he throws the ball behind them a little bit and rubens just trying to make a play but the point being is that they cut career because they didn't want to give them a million dollars right and he was good defensively and says they didn't want to give them a million dollars. That bothers me but i'm not going to sit here. Look i know i am i knew and i felt this way that you know sunday's game with jacob degrom was important to win. They needed to win that game at home. They needed to sweep the nationals to me. That was the key game because going to atlanta was not going to be. It's never easy for the mets down. There and why do think that it's going to be any easier. Now is beyond me so i i think your take on most of it is right and today with stroman. This is why he trade for him because you got to win this game today. You have to win this game today and i know all those people i called in yesterday today. The mets going down. I'm not giving up on this thing. You know you can't just point after so really i mean i i look at what happened. The last two days you kind of separate a little bit from sunday sunday because sunday was a part of that home stand and was still six in one home stand for crying out loud and then they went on this trip for six games where they come back home to to play the indian so so so far yeah you're on the road trip but if you salvage the game tonight which is so damn important and then you do some damage against a terrible team in the kansas city royals and the mets have been beaten up on bad teams and they should be able to do that again regardless. If it's in kansas city or not then you're all right you can still come back three and three four and two if things worked out well for you so i mean i i really i now is not the time to give up for sure however there's no doubt that the way things were going at home home friday saturday for the mets it just feels different couldn't get the big hit in the ninth inning when they were given a break in the bases are loaded and you have a couple of strikeouts. Jerry blevins comes in strikes out michael conforto for the fourth time last night. I mean it. Just you know these spots were conforto and alonzo. If they're gonna go for it's it's going to cost the team and and you know and it's from the offense of standpoint the defensive standpoint you know i don't know what to say about that. I mean i think they're okay. <hes> you know but the the the lack of being able to turn a double play in the second inning that kinda hurts. It just shows you that you know they're not there yet. They're they're they're young team and they're going to go through this and right now they want from the highest pies rippin conforto shirt off to going on foreign striking out with the bases loaded on the top of the night basically right but but winning tonight and then facing another bad team for three. I mean you're you're right. You're right back in. You're you're you're right there and and i know it's everybody's going to be scoreboard watching. They're going to be watched the phillies he's winning. They're going to be watching the nationals winning. I mean right. I get it. You're still you're still within striking distance where you'll learn a few weeks ago and the fact that you've got one more game against atlanta and in three bad team then you're back at city field or you've been really really good for the first time in a long time. All those things are still positive but there's there's just there's also these holes that you feel on this team now with which juries which some injuries to inject mcneil guys on the d. the i l. for hopefully hopefully only ten days mild hamstring strain but that's a killer i mean that is an absolute killer. The lineup gets exponentially worse when he's not in it and then when you have guys like old hair to hotta and g orme who were getting this significant playing time it's not like tuchman or shelhah and cameron may hey been who somehow turn into all stars with the yankees when they get their opportunities. It's just not that way now. You only got another hit last night. He had a big home run and might have been the greatest moment of his life when he hit that home run but the fact of the matter is that these guys are big players that probably shouldn't be in the major leagues for an extended period of time and now they're thrown into these situations with the mets in the highest leverage situation of all right. Let's go to nick in c- per nicky. What do you want <hes> good morning guys yeah. Usually i usually agree green with <hes> a lot of what you guys say especially with the mets i respectfully disagree and here's why if you're gonna take matt's out. Why is he batted. And what did he do when he batted. Gotta hit all right. Well there you go. You know why you know why i'll tell you why because he's a better hitter than the guy sitting on the bench. That's why well okay okay all right so he lets them hit why we caught. You're you're the first one to say we coddle these guys too much and you're like he's trying to protect matt's. Why are we protecting that so what they hit the ball hard. Maybe maybe we say that he had had a lot of atoms. I think nikki i love you. I don't agree with it. I i i agree with taking him out of the game. I even said this. Yesterday i said man. I'm going into this game with matt's. He needs to give us a good performance. He's not been great on the road <hes> he wasn't great in his last outing and look. They know that they're with him every day so they're trying to help him every which way they can so they get the league. He actually gets hit the top of the seven. That's why what did i tell you yesterday. I don't know if i said it on the air off the air. I'm so why do they send up all tear up there right now. I know i can put up their pitching. Yeah i mean better hitter than all these guys and stephen matt's gave you sixth grade innings and maguire calloway great well did for him. Yes he did down in atlanta right. He was getting gotten ahead in the last. Listen i saw that inning as well and that's why i was part of my point where he had the top of the order and a kuna albee's they would smoke the ball freddy. Freddie freeman smoke the ball in the sixth inning. I saw however i'm not gonna say it and give you sixth grade innings. He did down in atlanta in that situation pressure on on him. He gave you sixth grade innings and that's what you wanted. That's what you asked for and then mickey. Callaway goes to the guy who is relied on more than anybody this year era calm in and get the victory. Give you probably too winnings and god knows what he would have done to that. Maybe he might have pitched three for crying. Alowed mascots gets on base and he's running and he's out there. That's the other aspect of it. All who knows what that impact is fine and you're going to save that of course horse. He's going to act as if he wanted to stay in there because that's what he should be saying. Mickey did the right thing man. I don't care what i don't care what anybody says watching that game knowing the pitcher involved and knowing the situation and knowing who the reliever is coming in make you did the right thing right. It's not a pitch count. If people want to say oh. It's a pitch count. It's just so funny to me how third time right and how everybody hates the pitch count stuff until it comes up in a situation like this to support their argument well. You only had seventy eight something pitches. It doesn't matter micky calloway's and worried about stephen matches pitch counties worried about winning a frigging game and what he saw in that situation was wow wow we probably got everything we could have possibly gotten into stephen match tonight and now i'm gonna go to a great reliever in seth lugo in critical game yeah by the way you know it's one hundred degrees agrees down there right joe thing on the basis got two hits last night. I mean he didn't go to d. as he didn't go to. The gazelle gazelle men was probably gonna want best reliever. I bet you he was probably going to go. I would assume if everything worked out right. He would have went to lugo for two innings yeah right and then and then comes the interesting decision. You know maybe maybe because i i would. I was thinking that flow would have went to who is he going to go to. I thought if i had if they would've gotten to the bottom of the night i swear to god. I think it was going to be familiar about. Maybe i mean i was really really good. Appears last night was yeah. I mean i you know i really do think that if lugo had gotten through to winnings crisply as aaron boone likes the say but if you got it through a crisply that he might have pitched a third i'm serious. They might have sent him if he'd like guidebook so he might have. I mean that's what we trust the most and the reason i say that is because you may they need them again today. Oh god imagine but that yeah right now. I i understand but now all of a sudden pech pitch back-back nights easy you know he's not as durable as you'd like seth lugo but if he would've gone to d- as deep blue that save that would have been a mess as well. If we're gone too familiar instead of lugo in the seventy would have been pissed off about that. I don't know i i mean i really our problem with problem to pitch to winnings. He couldn't even get out get out. I mean he was he. Was that bad. So can i ask you a question. Yes so if you got pulled over over and cops had guns pulled out and pointed that you sure what what would you say like this. All is going to be caught on video by the way i would not. I i know where he's gone with this because the the brian cashman video was released of him with the guns drawn screaming get out of the car walk backwards towards me. I watched it this morning. You know i wouldn't i can say anything unless i was asked to direct question and then when i was asked a direct question i would answer it truthfully. That's what i would do. Innocent flight brian cashman was in so yeah so if you're in the same kind of done the same thing i'm like hey bad on boomer boomer and geo guys remember me yeah yeah. No i mean i i would. I would wait for them to ask for my i._d. Or whatever it's an amazing story though that they they found his jeep and the n._y._p._d. Didn't didn't clear it. You know what i'm saying. Well yeah i guess and also on top of that which made it crazier. Someone in a similar jeep had just robbed the doctor's office or something in darien rianne connecticut tied together. I know i know it's not i know i mean that video was out there. I recommend you watch it and it is it is funny. Is one of the cops goes to brian cashman. You look really familiar and he goes down. The general manager of the new york yankees is like oh yeah that's right yeah. I used to go on the same bagel places you start talking. They got some tickets to get out of car towards me. Shot up to brian cashman's credit. He basically said everybody was professional that they were doing their job. They did the right thing one hundred percent and so. I mean you know that situation. Thankfully nothing happened there right. No nothing did happen what does happen. Is that the thank you. Just keep scoring runs. You just keep beating baltimore orioles. Thankfully that series is now seventeen to. I've never seen something as bad as this. I cannot stand yankees. He's orioles. I mean last night on our softball felt like yankees orioles. We got such a big leader. You guys got such a big lead up on that parameter team. I mean it's just it was the the mercy rule last night like if they had any more games left. I would think that major league baseball what i had to step in and say we're not getting our softball game no well that too but but i mean the with the yankees and the oriels there anymore games left on the schedule rob manfred what i had to step in and say we're not playing these games. It's too embarrassing for everybody. Just give the yankees made a game movie yesterday yeah sure and there was only one home. Run did predict gary. Sanchez is one of the four home runs that i thought would happen and it was only one home run and it was gary sanchez and jay was was is okay so as sessa comes in was not good as he's been a little bit of an achilles. What a gleyber torres. Do this year the orioles i mean it's thirteen home runs. That's right home runs almost four hundred twenty r._b._i. I mean it's orange who runs all time stuff like like like lou. Gehrig eric like some of these other gleyber torres against the orioles. It's like the second best season anybody ever had in the history of baseball <hes> against anyone opponent so it's not just a modern ear no no history of baseball right so what has gone on that's how good the yankees have been and that's how bad the orioles event i so now the indians come in for basically what is it was. What is a week long series here in new york yankees and the mets. It's it's the chernoff series. That's right yes. This is where there's mark. Chernoff gets an extended time with the family as <hes> his son. Mike is in town not only two first team to take on the yankees within the mets back-back back so marquette a little show and tell with me this morning did he walked in and he had to gloves into baseball's that he goes. I'm going to have a catch with my son. Mike you today oh he's going to do that. Why do you have to gloves because glove. He's a general manager for frigging major. League baseball team described one of their clubs to grab anybody's growing new. You're you're the guy that sign contracts attract. Some sure. Everybody loves you without a doubt i mean. I don't think he's gotta get past the bulls. Why why can't the walls well. It's because you know he's been the guy who's had the balls else for a long time so but this is something about like like you're the g._m. Of a major league baseball team tickets may balls as you want yeah. Of course you'd have a ball the malls whatever you could bring a player with him if he wanted to to throw with his dad instead takes bringing a corey kluber. He's working catch with corey sure but this the thing that is done since they were a big deal. He has to have a catch with the sun. I know that that's their thing and i love that that's great. It's like i take honor to war pictures uh-huh and he has a catch with his son as wonderful right so <hes> you know the whole thing no bringing in a glove loves and he's proud. He's showing showing it to you now. I will have to say that not everything went totally perfect at our our softball game yesterday paramus first of all thank you to the folks of parameters for allowing us to be a part part of what i think is a very close knit community trying to come together around a tragedy of just unimaginable consequences so <hes> we say thank you to them for that <hes> not everything went smoothly for us. Either we had a second baseman ran out the second base without her glove. <hes> <hes> we have <hes> a catcher who leaves his glove behind and leaves the building <hes> <hes> we have our our director steven <hes> who leaves his notebook behind oh i mean it was just it's like what is wrong with these people. We had the pitcher who not once but twice was about a minute and a half late getting out to the mound. Oh 'cause i was signing autographs and taking pictures when you tell us sign up after again ah i will say this. This ambassador role for you. Yeah is working really well. I told you and whatever you said to me when you came out to the mound when we were they were in the midst of a rally in the bottom. Some of the seventh inning it worked yeah. No i know what you said to me but whatever it was it worked right and gave you a little pat on the fanny and then you got the next out boom done right they scored five live straight runs and then my little pep talk out of the game so it was it was great. I told you we always talk about this. Is it right here on c._b._s. Sports network as i did the old cover up the mouth mouth so so people don't know what i'm saying right and then and then right after this i mean it was basically like the next pitch. Yes i mean we won the game so i love that i love you. Pat me on the ass. I like that you look at your charge. Well yeah this is we always talk about self awareness and what we're good at what we're not good at and this is something i take pride now. There is one of the thing that i saw you doing last night and i i think it's kind of cute yeah and i just i'm not making fun of you please. I'm making fun of you because vision because it involves your beautiful little daughter sabrina right so you came in yesterday. You were so proud of sabrina watching us on tv yeah and she was going that dad bad and you had a show. The video of i did show you that video. How many times did you show that video two moms with babies last night. There were several yes yeah how many times i mean i'd say four or five at least four four five zero like a mom's liaison. I'm so there were parents. It was moms and dads look at look at my baby. Late day brought brought their babies over and they started asking because their listeners they started asking about sabrina how she doing and then i said well. This just happened today where she recognizes me on t._v. So i showed him the value that that and they loved it. They loved these seem to like it but i'm just saying like that's the kind of involvement that i think that you're good at yeah tall. There's g oh. He's so cute well. That's what i do is. That's what i do is an ambassador. I mean listen. I know what to do is ambassador bright. This is one of those things i don't tell oh. You had to play quarterback. You don't tell me being ambassador i think i know i'm doing all the things i need. I went over before the game. I met everybody on the other team. You got our grounds rules. Yeah i did do that. Yep absolutely your charge. Look you look like mickey callaway that here too nice trimmed up and everything as the blue sunglasses yeah. I know awaits he's he. Does that just ferment stuff. I haven't gone to that yet but <hes> but i but i will eventually with all this great. It's in the beer but you're not felt. I felt good. Here's me and eddie hanging out by the fence and a microphone with some insults and he may have had his best game yesterday. Daddy dabs his best game two for three three or four. What were you <hes> to for four to four yeah. That was pretty good but those guys were great. I mean parameter wreck team was was awesome and in those guys couldn't have been nicer. The field is a beautiful field there and parameters so we add we had a great time and it was a big victory for for the team without a doubt doing well doing well eighteen. The seventy eight or something like that was like h._d. Two right but well wood estate eighteen to to had we not had a few arizona last inning. He didn't give up homerun. Two guys miss playing balls w women to do gave a bomb guy hit a bomb off you in the senate and other bomb that was called back. There was one the way you said you told me the ground rule ground the one thing that i heard that i had never heard pitch and i'm sure that other in softball leagues actually play. This role is what the illegal pitch. What is the illegal illegal pitches. If it's like they've on pires told me it's like eight feet up in the air right or higher that no matter what happens with that page if you hit a home run. It's just a ball. Don't bother swinging anything that hot so so so we have what i think is their best player up and we have two men on so. I'm illegal pitching my ass off because i'm gonna put him on base yeah because i don't want him hit a home run on right and i think he recognizes that i'm doing that to him so he tomahawks one of course yes but apart immediately calls illegal pitch but nobody can hear it because the dan music's six point and they're all run around basis and everybody's high five and i'm like i'm just going at. That's not a homerun legal pitch. This is what you told me before. The guy did tell you and you use. He's the tier advantage and then i had a really illegal pitch them onto you know first base and then i got the next guy out folks the score. That point was seventeen. Nothing nothing right w._f._a._n. Let it they would appreciate that and then of course job rarefied right. Joe knows fish are catcher yeah and he's telling you empire you. You know that really wasn't eight feet. It was more like six. What are you telling him that for because we wanted to give them some runs that nobody wants anything given they wanted. They wanna earn it. The guy hit a home homerun crying out running in legal pitch which is illegal. That's why they call it a legal pitch what why do we when when when we say nothing nothing dude when they say illegal they mean freaking legal nothing a charity softball game that when they say legal pitch it means illegal with them why you throwing. I wanted to see legal if you know it's illegal because i'm trying to walk them maybe shouldn't be a._p. Shouldn't intentionally throw something illegal. I'm a little disappointed in you. Right should have been you that. Didn't that bronchitis swinging at the ball. That's why that's why he went to illegal measures. I like you. I was playing within the rules. It was a loophole in a rule. I was playing within the rules us just because that guy tomahawk that it's my job and then my catcher turn around the empire. You know that wasn't really eight feet sponsor the uniform so we have to let everything go with joji right. He could do whatever he wants and then you're yelling me to announce on the microphone that it's an illegal pitch to send everybody back and i was like i can't do this. I was like like i gave the mike somebody else i can't do this. It was seventeen nothing. You're part of our t._i._a._a. Announcement clear and concise like you gave us. The ground rules is after. You've got them yeah well. Luckily would've been what's eighteen to eleven. If we let that let that goes. Maybe would have been a little bit tighten at three run home run right now. It would have been eighteen eleven instead eighteen center.

Just When You Thought It Couldnt Get Any Worse For The Mets

"Why the investors Bank studio. Guber sizing, Greg Jian ATI, boomer and geo on the fan simulcast across the country on CBS sports network. Good Friday morning. Hey, no. Their summer Friday, beautiful weather. It's been the last couple of days today. Also looks great Jerry in four boomer this morning, boomer will be back on Monday morning. It's going to be plenty of NBA free agency talk then and we'll have plenty of it today as well. But I have to start as this week comes full circle with an apology of my own. So this week is bit about Mets apologies, right? How Jason Vargas should have apologized. But didn't how Mickey Calloway did apologize after being called out a second time from the media. How Brodie van wagon apologized for the way that he's team acted. Have Jeff wilpon had apologized to team Healy and the members of the media after that dust up Monday. Jerry's sat to my right, and we had a discussion about going to Edwin d as when Seth Lugo look like he didn't have it. He was up around forty pitches blows the game at windy as thrown twelve pitches in eight days. Use closers your big acquisition and Jerry said, Edwin stinks. You can't go to Edwin Diaz. And I said, yeah, I know you hasn't been good. But still, go ahead. Wendy s. Well, I have to apologize, Jerry use Edwin as he does stink. He is awful and could be part of what might end up being the worst trade in the history of the Mets, if chase ball if Jared Kalmyk turns into a really good player, this could be the worst trade in the history of the Mets or baseball as you say as yesterday, the comical, becomes even more ridiculous as that kit a three one lead. Todd Frazier home run to take the lead. They tack on with the resort infield single at first and third and one out and here comes as now if the Mets won this game, it wouldn't really mattered right because they're still completely out of it. The team isn't any good. But they would have come home on a positive note going into this nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine anniversary weekend would have been a nice little thing. They heat would have been off them for a day. Instead worst possible scenario with the worst possible guy blowing it and Brodie van wagon and once again with every time that Robertson Cano steps up to the plate. And every time had been Edwin takes the mound. He looks more and more foolish. Good morning, Jerry. How are you? I'm sorry apology accepted. Okay. They suck. So. So you know what it is? We continue to say how bad they are, and all this, and I get it that's fine. And whether it's twenty or twenty one I can't figure out what the right numbers with these blown saves if you're a member of this team if you're Todd Frazier. You come up yesterday in the midst, they can't buy a hit the only base that they have, I think was the pitcher. Right. So then they're doing nothing offensively. And think my God, they're going to be swept in a four-game series. And I love to know what the stats are in four games. Alice's every double header is usually a split. Not true. Most four game sweeps or series do not end in sweeps. Most I'd love to know how many are because the fact that they got swept this week in games that they lead every time and couldn't hold a lead is remarkable. And if you're Todd Frazier yesterday, or your anybody that was in the infield or in the Alfie Dominic Smith at first base, whatever it might be in the ninth inning. You've got to be thinking, what are we doing out here because they had nothing going for eight innings. They put up a few they get it to three one. They've got. Lead for God's sakes, and for Edwin d as to come in. I mean just gave you. Here's what I learned at least yesterday. And I'm not saying this is the case for all season. But yesterday he's got no swing emits MS pitch. You know, the Michael Francke homerun, it's an oath to pitch. How about what's even worse? Look at the Sean Rodriguez at bat that he walks them. I mean fells off he can't strike out, Sean Rigas. Lift e seven saves last year. I don't know. I don't know who this guy is. I don't know what guy the Mets got. And you're right. And I have to give credit to Dara's Allen, who said this on after one of his overnight updates and I guess Todd zeal said this on the post game which I did not watch after this one, but Mike health Franco has three home runs in the series, right? The other two home runs in this series came in a pitch. The exact same location fastball about letter high. So what on an ode to pitch? Lee is throw this guy who dominates the Mets and his hit two runs on exact same pitch. Some fastball letter high Bom looks like a fly. And by the way, here's the story of the two thousand nineteen minutes, you get the home run that wasn't for them by inches. And this thing which they review is a home run by inches the other way. Yeah. Right. And then those are the breaks when you're going this way, but Edwin de as is not a great closer anymore. And I don't know if he's going to get it back. I don't know. We weren't watching every mariner save last year. I don't know if this is lock I don't know if he's losses competent. I don't know if he's hurt. I don't know if they're going to put him on the I L with Bennett lesion, like they did. Jerry's familiar just because he's things. I don't know. I don't know the answer. But if you're Mickey Callaway and you now can't go to him with any sort of confidence in the entire bullpen now. It Lugo hasn't been good to Adams. Either is infected. You're. Entire bullpen is infected. And this guy you would think just one time after I had many blown saves. They had to win one game out of these four and Philadelphia who have lost seven in a row coming into the series, just one time to take the heat off, then so they have a nice week if forty one Seaver way happens. They have that ceremony. The sixty nine Mets are going to be celebrated this weekend. At city field just to take the heat off. And this is why for everybody that says no fire Mickey Callaway, do something cut this guy trade that guy, they're probably not going to do it because that will take tension away from what they're trying to do at city field this weekend. I don't think it'll happen in the next couple of days. I don't think in two hours. We look down at Twitter and Mike Pompeo tweets out the Mickey Callaway on. I mean, I would be shocked if it happened now but every day that passes though with this same stuff going on. And by the way, when people say, you know what can Mickey Callaway do what? Can the new eighty two year old pitching coach do have out tell your closer not to throw a letter high fastball to a guy who mashes against you who is already hit two home runs with against the same exact pitch? So what could he do? What could he do better scouting more communication? I mean, maybe that wasn't where the pitch was supposed to be. But it's an to fastball to a guy right down the art of the notion festivals fine if it's off the plate. Can't don't right down the middle which tells me obviously missed a spot because he's not good right now. He's just not. And you know what's scary and sad about what you said, if you go back about sixty seconds. If you rewind that whole little thing you said, you said windy as is not a good closer anymore. He's twenty five. Yeah. He's not thirty five to where he shot. He's twenty five may get it back. But I mean right now. He's not he's not anything. He's not. He's not special night. Anything he seven games. We, we have to totally forget about that. It's not the guy or of his last eight. That's not the guy who the Mets got. I don't want to close the blows four games in a season. You are you're going to wipe out all last year. You do. I know you do this point, it's over. You can't keep going him like he something because he's not he's just he's just like everybody on worse. Yeah. Cases and I know he had a couple of decent outings. Evan was on that yesterday. Well, you know, when if you really look, he's kinda gotten better, you know what I'm looking at the totality of the season. I have zero confidence when he comes into close a game zero zilch NADA. That's a two run lead yesterday. You wanna tell me it's a one run game one swing? All right, fine. You're going to be a little leery there by two runs. He still can't close it. Walk in people sharp line drives off Todd Frazier. Woke another guy can't strike out a journeyman and showing Rodriguez and then gene girl, by the way, one to pitch. Yup. Come on. Yeah, you're right about the finishing move is lacking. Red Wendy Guay. Yeah. So, so the. Mets now are just a dead dead total free fall, and they have been dead for days. And now it's essentially to even more in this, this deal now, throat van wagon was going to be defined by the windy as Robinson odeal. There was no doubt about it. We knew it at the time that this was going to be his defining move more than others in this off season. And it really when you say it could not if both of these guys weren't on the field, they better if. Yeah. If these if canot India's were jet Lowry and hadn't played a game this year. It'd be better than what we've gotten from these two guys already Robertson could all by the way, he's up there runners on swings swings through a hanging slider. Like he's got a train the catch a he is every time he steps up to the plate. It's just as slog of ineptitude and Edwin on top of it, you could not have SCR. Shifted a worst first half for those two guys, if you try and know the problem is for me to sit here and bash Brody for the moves. I like them. I didn't like the canot part of it. But I love the fact that they got it windy as I like the jet Lowry signing. I sit here I really can't in good conscience, sit here and destroy him now because it hasn't worked when I set her and said, you know what I was on board with the move. I thought it was out of the box. I kind of liked it. I thought it was different there might have been a better candidate for sure and bloom. And I get that. But I was I liked that they didn't go retread. They didn't go old school. They had a different vision for this team. I thought it was kind of cool. I did the comments after the hiring, find ticket for what it's worth. It's much nonsense. It's hype leave that alone, but then he made the moves he made them like you know what I like this team. I really do. And if you know if pita Lonzo becomes anything they got something here. And if joke McNeil that wasn't a charade last year. They've got something here and now to sit here I I can't good. Conscious just bury the guy for moves that one hundred percent. Agreed with. Yeah, I didn't love the canot one once I found out that they were paying as much as they were n gave parts for sure. I'm with you on that. I did. And I've said many times, I've really and this is embarrassing for me to admit five times a week now because we talk about this Mets bullpen so much that I thought he built a good bullpen. So did I really did. I thought that regardless of how I felt about the Conoco deal in totality, that everyone was at the back end of that bullpen, and I didn't hate Jerry's familiar coming back to be a set one. I didn't love we disagree on that. But that's fine. I, I really like I saw when I work those five years in Pittsburgh. So Justin Wilson be a really good lead hander on good teams. And I said that is a great signing. I said Lugo in and gazelle mean coming back and not using either one of those guys in the rotation. Easy great thing for that bullpen. I thought he built a good bullpen. I thought he'd I really did think now I thought there were other moves that could have been made in one of the conversations I remember having with Evan. In terms of rebuilding this team was it was the Lowery, LeMay. Hugh argument, and I was on, I really wanted to Mayhew just because dork alert just from all the fantasy baseball just watching him from afar. Everyday in Colorado, and people would say you have it was Colorado. I just liked him as a player, and I thought great versatility. And he just good hitter. So I would have preferred them go that route, but I had no issue at Larry at all. And I'm with you. I thought he did what needed to be done with the bullpen and it could not have gone were. I mean you're talking about the worst bullpen in baseball right now. We're muck and the nationals in April their mock in the midst now. And so is the rest of there's not a lead big enough now that I think you're comfortable with any game you can't watch it anymore. You really can't I mean it's gotten to that point now where they hand over a lead to the bullpen don't wanna see it again because it's sickening. And I don't know about you. But I'm watching this game yesterday, and I was ballooning to more than I was watching it because I was doing some stuff. I wasn't around yesterday in the car in the back yard had to go out for something in the evening and you're looking at the game. You're listening to the game. And my thought is good. They're just gonna lose one nothing. We don't even have to discuss this tomorrow. We'll mention it and move on. And then it's like all right. They came back. In one, we can actually have a little positive start. I'm sure we'll get right to the NBA and then the unthinkable happens, and it's almost like they suck you back in, because they infuriate you with the way think about the way they're losing these games. I said it is a joke and one report yesterday. The Mets are finding new ways to lose each day. They're legitimately finding new ways lose each. It's like that caller said the other day when I was driving, and it was actually genius. It's Mets clo- and yesterday was a Goro with a home run in the ninth that's was if you had that you wanna game you want the game for me. So, you know watching the game then we have plans to go out on the water with another couple get some dinner at a restaurant. So I'm at the at the marina, and I look. I see. All look mex- took delete. So that's great. Look at this good for them. You know, good for them. Tell my friend, good for them. They might win a game before they come back. Take the pulled over to where we go. I doc, right? I get the boat. I head toward the bar restaurant and I guess he took. Cheats, heist. Basis in their throat everything up, and there's gator. L to grow. Does the scored five rugs? Thinning over DNC unbelievable. And then I just thought here we go again. And I'm gonna and then I just, of course, thinking I'm supposed to have a great night out dinner and everything. I'm just thinking of you on Monday. View, as I said, go to ads. Sunday. Luckily the one and we could see I told you so. But I mean, this is exactly what you feared and Mugo it and do the job didn't do the job a second time in a row. I get it. But that's this is exactly why I would not have done, what people wanted them to do on Sunday in Chicago to me. No, it made no sense because there is nothing that told me he was gonna come in, in a tight spot in that game. Especially if there was a guy on the one thing you did like yesterday was that he got a clean inning? He comes in in the night. He starts tonight these good for three hours the night before, right? He gave you three an easy was at the ninety pitched in the tiger the night before if a little bit better. That's fine. But it's full gold leadoff walk. We're the polls here we guess we thought that's the other thing, Kenya, not walk the damn leadoff better. I'd rather give up a solo home run there then walk saying stupid. But actually Mickey said the exact same thing. He said the exact same after the game. Just I mean, there aren't enough words to. Scribe it. And you know what people have phone with Mike all the time. Mike was spot on yesterday. This belief is just unreal. Every every body was thinking it when he came into the game. I how is he gonna blow this this and he Dinnie any did their good players on this team? This is not a new have fun with it all the time go for it. They're seven eight games under five hundred now. They suck. I get it. They're not a bad baseball team. They don't have anyone to close a game. And I'll tell you know, the thing because I was in the news at take a break, I was in the newsroom yesterday when the guy made the call yesterday, and you guys got ahead fought with him. You know what, not so stupid Noah and Steven you got this game. Jacob vargas. You got this game. Can it be worse? Well, no. That wasn't the argument against it. The caller said, don't use a bullpen at all except for one day a week. He's a bullpen game and then use to starters every day and just rotate them. I'm joking of course. But you get the that's the level of absurdity. We've gone with this people. Try to invent new ways to play baseball just to avoid the Mets pen because it's the. The worst. And I know flexing was okay yesterday and Brooks. Pounders. Okay. I said he has I said, again, I would cut them all. I know I can't cut mom, I wouldn't cut the as yet. I wouldn't do that. And I know I can't do anything with me, because he's quote unquote injured. Everybody in the bullpen get out. And I'll bring up guys from AAA because you tell me can it be worse? No, it can't. Absolutely. All we can do is improve. It can't be worse. Absolutely. Seth Lugo Robert zooming go somewhere else, and they perform great. Oh, so you get your weight. And as soon as it comes back DFA. You can't get rid of Lugo. Now give it all for Diaz. Wait. He did. He has only twenty five. I gotta give him a chance. I can't give it a Lugo yet I can't he's had him. He was like the only guys put together a couple of decent outings. Save Lugo save D as and everybody everybody else goes into make statement. Because you know what that would do. And I know it's it's not going to happen. I get it. Don't call and yell at me. But you know what it would do? It would show everybody on the team. You know what you guys you guys have put run. You've given us leads. We've got your back. These guys suck get them out. Yeah. Right. Find someone that can do the job. It's sort of, like that, that old NFL thing in the locker room where there's contentious stuff happening because the defense is really is terrible or vice versa. I mean that's basically what's going on. Now with with the bullpen and rest of the team if you were on the field. How would you feel like the night in and night out? This apt totally mind numbing frustration. I born geo at Gerry in four boomer this morning. Mets Yankees in NBA free agency. We'll get into all.

Chris Loprestis Monday Morning Update

"Forgiving away. Yankee tickets every hour this morning Yankees Orioles ticket. So stay tuned for that. Also, Jack Hughes will be joining us in studio. Nine AM first overall pick in the NHL draft to the New Jersey Devils Jack Hughes out us joining us. And I'm kind of thinking that we've been saying capital, Cocteau's name wrong this entire time. I think it's Cafo tackle. That's what I think it is. I heard Miko calling Geico. Settles it but a bunch of fans that greeted him. Rangers fans showed up at the airport to greet him figure, those are the guys who are going to know how to pronounce his name. They were doing a chant and they said Capito, Kako Capito. Kako commence confusing. I know. Did not Friday night. We were out softball game. I did not see him get selected and I didn't see the highlight. I don't know how to pronounce it. But you can't trust the guys because the with the NHL Jeff Gordon stepped up and made the announcement. And these guys the NHL executives like they wanna get out of there, you want to be up there on stage. Right. They're not looking for any camera time. Sure, I wouldn't I wouldn't necessarily go by that. We got to settle this thing you saw the videos with yesterday. Oh, yeah. Prayed around New York. I feel bad for gave me looks very uncommon. Well, I mean, it sees eighteen years old. Into this whole thing. What a nice city. So we have the, the announcement of the pick. What does this one? Do you have have some of the interviews just talking about New York City? Okay. All right. Let's listen to him. Just arriving New York, while it's a nice city. I just arriving New York while it's a nice eating. That was two different times. He said that actually. This is one that kicked in the face on the subway. By grandmother twist of iron, retro shorts these wild threats are wonderful. I'm amazing, the habit that that they have your grace. I would like one as a pet. Puts the puck in the net. I'll be funny. No. Of course, I actually I had the same reaction as you did like this guy, too much camera timeframe mainly getting over. Well now you know, I mean because all just spotlight from the second that he got here, different than our j Barrett MSG with a suit on. He's up there guy plays do, he's on national TV million times last is a little bit different. All right. Ceelo is here with his update. What's going on? Chris brought to you by Buick GMC of Ma visit Buick GMC of Mewa dot com. Let us try and unpack this Mets disaster in order. So we begin Sunday Wrigley field. Bottom of the eighth Mets lead the cubs three two. You get two on one out and a laboring. Seth Lugo facing havi, or by with an to count the pitch raking ball line air, right? It's deep could fought back this go. The right field. Three run over for by as how he rose. Eighty and you had both broadcast radio and TV kind of questioning it before it even happened, those that they could see it coming, forty second and final pitch thrown. By Lugo, we only got four the six outs Mickey Callaway was looking for a three two lead turns into a five three loss and a four game split in Chicago. But the fireworks, of course we're just beginning set off by testy post game media gathering with the manager, who was grilled about his bullpen usage and trying to squeeze two innings out of Lugo on a day where he didn't appear to have best reliever up one run. You know, we know that when he has the opportunity to go. The seventy eight. He's going to do except in this case he didn't. And there were plenty of first guesses about not going to Edwin Diaz for an extended saying for five outs, he would have thrown the ninth of we will get into. Maybe I didn't we didn't get that I wish you wanna said that. That's what I wish you wouldn't have said because he wasn't even warm. He wasn't and he was not going to be available for four outs. It was going to be gazelle man and just one thing on because I wrote this down to I told you how good Lugo has been ninety nine teen outings, giving up nothing. Basically, what one run since mid April is ridiculous. How good he's been d- as last seven outing so far fewer he's given up three of those games one run three runs in four hours. Yeah. Let's go to him. Please. It's tricky. I options here was one more about Mickey just really not having any intention of using D as in the new go was gonna face by as either way. So, you know, and, and Cassoma was going to step up if he didn't get biased. But we didn't get we didn't get his out. They just don't have they had guys. Yeah. And Lugo didn't have it, which is going to happen when you like you said he's been great since mid April. I mean every now and then there's going to be one where they just they don't have it. Here was the sequence, though where things really seem to get tens, it's a little extended. But you have the questions and the answers in the back and forth, here with the media and Callaway thrown pitches days is situated willing to go. Lately used any didn't know we're not gonna use them for five outs. I know I know you guys keep on asking, but my answer is going to stay the same. You about. Organizational decision that four ounces kind of the max there. That's exactly right. If you wanted to use DS for five and you'd be allowed to the game in the moment, of course. I mean, does that need to be a plan? You guys read discussing the mental about using it for four versus five. No. I mean just because you think so absolutely not. We have a very good plan. We know what we're doing and we're gonna stick to it. Good point. Jerry had said, you know, you don't know Tim Hilly's voice that is Matt e hall. They're asking that last question the other voices. I'm not sure I don't know not Mealey's voice myself either. So I don't know if he was part of the questioning that led to what happened after the fact in the clubhouse, or if Mickey which is ready to snap whoever sets that won't point. He's smiling like he's trying to be polite. And just got the best. It was the, the ill phrased see you tomorrow. Well, yes. At set them off tomorrow. Mickey like how's he in the morning? Like, how do you think like gimme the see you tomorrow? How can we didn't go on the boat Friday? What do you mean? It was raining. So, like, could you have envisioned a scenario we would want on the boat. Could I envision a scenario you're going do this thing? I don't want to participate in this. I want to do something more fun than that. All right. So you get the point. Yes. So we answered the question. But here's times they keep asking it. Okay. But you're a manager. This is what you do. I'm sorry. Right. And then you go daughter after a while you're no you're not. Op for that. I wanna see fire. Now you don't do full of crap. I r- I know you well enough now at your full of crap via had said the opposite, you would have said the opposite. I'm telling you, right. You cannot condone any part of that behavior in the clubhouse shoes and said it best the media's undefeated and they will continue to be undefeated. So Mickey is on his way out. Get your shots well serious. What you gotta say. But, like, what see you tomorrow would set him? That's all it was. Alad done that the Magus. I wanna know if there was more there. I think it was just like the questioning was done for today in his see you tomorrow is like, I'll be back here tomorrow with these same exact questions. Completely could be what did you? What did you think none of? That's why. That's why we. Healy meant this. In fact, everyone all the other beat reporters have come to his defense. In fact, he answered questions himself to Newsday see tomorrow if, if, if he said, it's are cast as in hey you here. Maybe losing your job because of what happened today. You know what I mean? There's a lot that could could have happened and we don't know Mickey, obviously, was fired up a little bit smarter. Right. He said something else. Maybe maybe you're right on the surface. Haymaker ac- Tamara pal. Zulus it just like that. There had to been this guy has been too nice to zoom saying it's the tone that apparently set him off. And I wanna know what tone is so bad with a C tomorrow that you go, your mother Ephron the guy to death in the clubhouse. I mean I don't think that there's a seat tomorrow possible. Like if that's all that's all it was. But I mean this thing was so, heavily reported on, we wouldn't have missed fill in a couple of the blanks, not that we were there, have the audio the seat, Amaro prompted the don't be a smart ass comment. But then the version of the events is Mickey walked away. Circled back a couple minutes later. And then he'll he tried to say, listen you know, I didn't I didn't mean anything by that. And then that's just wanted no part of hearing any explanation. And that's where he really got worked up and hit him with the mother effort got the PR staff involved get this mother effort out of here. There wasn't wasn't like it all happened in one quick. Sequent. There were few minutes and then the Vargas thing happened right thing. I'd like to know what the heck is all about last guy apparently after right after Mickey tore into Healy, and then walked away, Vargas was giving them the stair now seconds was there down. And then he'll he said, the have something to say to me, and then he did. Knock you the bleep out. Yeah. Carlos Gomez holding them back. I mean that just picture that. Lassus and the long hair, of course. I mean, when you say the last guy in the roster, you really is the last guy, I would think would say, I will knock you the blimp out. He's feeling his oats guy wasn't good the other day, but he's been good. It must have been tough for Healy to not accept that challenge. Vargas. Crazy. Yeah. Strain he does see some of the shifts that are on. Looks like he's so high. Right. Knock somebody out. Yeah. But there's like that look about him that he just looks. Oh, well that I would I could say it. Let me play you one more. We have plenty to get to audio wise for the Mets this morning. But we mentioned mad, he halt, who has that last question to Mickey that prompted the just because you'd think so, so he's with the record. He was with lower here on the fan last night, kind of corroborating Tim Healy in the fact that there was no ill intent with what he said initially with the seat tomorrow. Malicious behind which there was not. I you know, Tim work with them everyday. He's great guy. Kim would not like mock. That's just not at all. What would happen? And then my Puma was on with Chris, Maury said something it's amazing. We have cuts from beat writers colder here. Just tell you all you need to know about the situation but Puma and I'll play this for you later. His opinion, obviously not based on fact thinks that make trying to get himself told you. That's what these people, you know, I heard this trust in that Mickey has basically no say, over anything that's happening right now with the team, whether it's lineups bullpen usage, he's being told what to say to the media now again, that's his opinion based on everything that he's gathered. But. A weird way to try to get. And a half left on his contract, if obviously, if he resigned hade, right? You're fired get paid pitching. Doug, with no pants. Or may own lineup. Maybe. Did what how dare you write the lineup? You're the manager, you don't do such things stupid this day and age, isn't it? It really is. Speaking of Brodie, he's apparently going to be in Philadelphia now. I mean, maybe he was anyway. But now they're definitely sending him today, and he's supposed to address the situation at some point later on before they played a Phillies who have their own issues. They've lost seven in a row. Gabe Kappler was little testy. I'm sure it was game Prescott guy knock you the bleep would start. Fascinating series man. They were not even I'm sorry. They were five away from taking three or four what we're talking about. Regression to the mean. Right. Dr. Team is what it is. You know, you can only go so he before you have to go back at one point, they said something along the lines of you know how do you even look at this team right now? And he said, we are we are we can't, we can't gain any traction we win five. We lose five five and five every ten and it's like, we just kinda stuck between three under a couple over three under couple over and they can't seem to figure it out. And just to be fair to the Mets. They did release the apology statement, last night, and Jeff wilpon personally called Tim Healy to apologize. Let him know it as one of two feel uncomfortable doing his job moving forward. You got Stephen mad supposed by Zach eflin 705 tonight coverage on WCBS eight eighty now. Ask a question if Tim Healy today. Yes, you have to do. I think you're ballsy, I think right after Gelb Zesco has I to you're the first question Gallup's. He's true. He's got the, the paternity. Yes. Yeah. At the stadium, seventy third old timers day festivities put everyone in a good mood, especially with Marian Rivera stealing. The show within Jay half took the mount against the Astros and right away. Juba forget about it. It's that is God in the second deck. What a home run by Jose, Al to and just like that, the Astros Tako one nothing lead. John sterling air on the fan, first of three long both served up by half on the day including Tyler whites grand slam. The fourth hap- tag for eight runs on eleven hits both matching career highs over four plus Houston built a nine nothing lead. It ended up a nine four victory to snap their seven-game skid and the winning streak at eight hap- servant homers at an alarming rate, especially at home. Here's Aaron Boone on his struggling left-handers fly balls can hurt you, when you make mistakes with just, you know enough mistake, I think he's been hurt a little bit by some balls here that have just got now, Alvarez also took him deep have out that didn't Homer, sixteen RBI's in his first twelve. Bigly games. He's betting three thirty three for Houston. Plug in one of their injury holes as for hap- says he's not going to dwell on this one for too long. There was a game. You know, if possibly try to flush, you know, we had a good series and we say opening sweep. Cushioned by having won the first three and still a six and one homestand. Justin Verlander pretty much on cruise control. He did. Allow three run home at a DJ LeMay. Hugh in the fifth twenty six straight game with a home run for the anx new franchise record. One off matching the major league record set by the Rangers back in two thousand two Lamaze you finish three for four three RBI's to run scored Giancarlo Stanton. Had the day off Aaron judge for ten four strikeouts. Since returning from the Colton long. Yeah. I think so. You see the play he might be. Kidding. Did you see for Nando tat teach June? Hey, up on a pop up to second right behind second Bank God. And the guy like double double, and they called him out. And they went to show. Yep. Cameron made into the I L now. He's got the strain left calf expected to miss six weeks. So that kind of took care of itself. Pretty quickly Yanks host the Blue Jays for three before heading off to London. Got about all three. Tonight's opener pre game on the fan. Six twenty six games, did beat the Red Sox yesterday, six to one Marcus Stroman pitched very well in that game.

Jerry Recco's Tuesday Morning Update

"Matt said a Nice Mets Formula Type Win Jacob degrom on the Mound Alonzo Hidden. Some home runs Seth Lugo coming in that's what you want and that's what you can hopefully get the rest series against the diamondbacks as that's a team that they are chasing there was some controversy though a New York Post report about Noah syndergaard going management in saying don't want this Wilson Romo's anymore. I've told you this before look at my numbers for crying out loud I've got it almost six. Era with Wilson Romo's and I've got an under two five era with these other guys what's going on then it becomes public and then everybody runs to Maki and runs to brody and runs to Noah syndergaard and runs the Wilson Romo's GonNa becomes a thing when it should become a thing you know something. That's going to get lost in this is this is another another mets leak that has gone on with some sensitive inside information that probably shouldn't be public that now could potentially be a distraction for a team that is still chasing a wild card so do you guys think leaked icon benefits from the League because I'll tell you it's a bad look on Noah syndergaard. I I think but it also kind of goes against all the like I think internal analytics when it comes to offensive prowess so Wilson Ramos is one of the mets best hitters you want him in the lineup. You can't bury him as a D. H. In the National League you have to plan behind the plate. He doesn't play anywhere else. He doesn't play first base. I don't think thank so he's your catcher but the other problem here is that all the numbers tell you that when Noah syndergaard is pitching Thomas Neto. He's a different pitcher. So are you going to placate your pitcher or you can try to get your catcher on the field to put him in a lineup so he extends the lineup line up and they put up some runs yeah. I think you do whatever you can DAB. Noah syndergaard and Wilson Romo's worked better together and I think that Noah syndergaard has to figure it out like Ron Darling said in the broadcast last night he said it's up to the picture to figure out how to make it work with Wilson Ramos. When Wilson Ramos is the best offensive option that you have there at catcher well then then then then Ronnie saying saying that Ronnie has been there Rodney's walk the mile and that man shoes he knows that he has the credibility to say that I would say Noah syndergaard's gotTa Grow Up Yeah I would also say that the leak maybe came from his side because he's trying to explain why he's had to really bad outings out of the last three outings that he's had sure when they needed needed needed it the most he gave up or had two of his worst outings so he's probably hearing I you know I think all of these people respond to social media sure right so I think a lot of these players get frustrated and then they then that the frustration manifests itself in different ways and this may be what is spiking this whole thing yeah and we will see how the mets handle it from here on out with Noah syndergaard but I gave Mickey Mickey in Brody Credit for saying listen to this I filled lineup outward expected nowhere to go out there and compete with the guys that are in the lineup? That's what it is and taking a hardline stance when we know at this clubhouse has been very player friendly ever since Mickey callaway so this is a weird deal man. This is obviously when you listen to what Brody Van Wagon and saying here when Mickey callaway saying here they're all frustrated with Noah syndergaard but I also have to look at it from the other side that Noah syndergaard is a better pitcher with Thomas Nino as his catcher sure. There's no question about it. The numbers tell you that if you're an analytic sky and you want the best out of your pitcher wouldn't wouldn't you make the decision that all right. I WANNA get seven innings out of this guy yeah. They're not gonNA put Wilson almost late in the game the baby get a couple of maybe get a couple of a bad slayton games taking a crucial bat out of the lineup though and that's something that the mets can't afford to do right now are Jerry's here in a ton happened last night so let's get to Jerry Good Morning Jerry morning brought to you by the rating auto group schedule an appointment today at a rate Katina service center our First Class Service at affordable prices. Who's going to start with the football but since you doing the mets I'll just give you the sounds from their game last night how we end? WCBS eight eighty they l. one hit high in the air. The Left Center pretty deep. It's on its way and it is God Pete Alonzo he hits the per- forty six eminem sweet seats beyond the three seventy mark forty secs off runs for the rookie Pete Alonzo. They'll met Sarah lead by a store more of what that's how he rose. WCBS eight eighty Alonzo road at East spanked that he did and then they would spank it again and he would have forty seven home runs a major league leading forty seven and the mets defeated the diamondbacks three one zero in the middle of that an RBI single and Jacob degrom seventy three ball eleven strikeouts he gets the Wind Seth Lugo the eighth and the ninth to wrap it up. Here's Mickey callaway Alonzo such a good header. If you make a big mistake doesn't even have to be a big mistake in that second homer that pitch wasn't that bad of pitchy just went down and got it. He's GonNa make you pay and he did in terms of what he's done. Just simply tremendous fastball pinpoint join at times can elevate when he needs to execute the change get the slider down and away just just dominant and degrom appreciative of the offense and Alonzo zone what he's doing anytime. They're putting on the board. It's it's fun to watch but you know he's had a had a great season and it's been a fun to be a part of like rahm almost a tremendous night. Almost it was perfect in terms of not giving up run. He did give up one a home run to one guy. I guess I might I probably would have picked floor air flora's flow. It's a little frustrating rushing former flora's with the home run got a Standing Ovation Zeke Ryan took him he could have afterwards. I'm not seeing that but it's certainly possible. Here's that Lugo had to have this one. It's big especially after last couple of days. you know we we definitely need a you know that one but you know like I said every game important at this point so it's over with folks tomorrow mets now seventy three and seventy remaining four games behind the cubs for the second wildcard spot in terms of the Syndergaard Wilson Romo nonsense here was the roadster pre-game thoughts on syndergaard not wanting Ramos well. I wouldn't call it an incident. Noah and I met we've had ongoing dialogue with many players over the course of the season says he wants them happy and comfortable. It's going dialog comfort ability whether it be a text message email or face to face we have engaged on numerous occasions to have this ongoing dialogue dialogue and dialogue dialogue he did admit to talking with no and we had dialogue going back to earlier in the season where we had an opportunity to hear his thoughts we were able to share information for God and stop the whole thing. If you go to Stanford do use words like dialogue dialogue. You don't say you talk to each other like you and I would say hey we have conversation shooting the breeze about you. I use the word vile I yeah we had some ongoing dialogue expressed his feelings on the matter and then I in a very healthy way expressed mine and we laughed apt productive place and we went and got a smooth the yes we did and a week crash shot okay so that is the end of this particular dialogue whatever he does to his hair are though I know she's got good head of hair man. He's looking man man I if I could take brody's head of hair and Mickey's beard I would those guys are very very well-groomed can you can you mash them together. In some sort of APP probably do that out. That's right up your alley. There's a guy hi. Who does these photo shops all the time right for us? That seems to be listening to four hours of the show. Every day sounds good. If there's a there's a couple of guys out there that have that EH technology please do that the brody hair and the Mickey Beard and on you on me which would seem very difficult but CV could pull it off cubs beat the padres tend to rookie shortstop Nicole Horner three hits four B is in his big league debut which is why the mistake four back in terms of the Yankees they sign are to the red sox socks in terms of the Division as New York Shuts Out Boston swung on the air to deep left field that ball is high as far as gone Jio Al Shelhah hits over the high wall into the Monster Seats G. O. R. Shalah most happy Fella. Oh Oh he's the most happy he homers the deep left and the Yankees take a to nothing nothing would be the final score John Sterling on on the Fan Austin remind homer in the fifth snapping a scoreless game they would Romanova yeah behind by seven the DJ La- Mayhew with an RBI single gleyber torres a sac fly James Paxton tremendous manager Aaron Boone on yes any extra satisfaction to be the team to eliminate Boston from the division race not that it was a secret. Let me guess play just happy to win. No because we want to win the division Asian closed off you pretty close though you could've edited out cough though there might have been there. Bob Usually leaves that in okay I don't do do that. here's Aaron Judge Roy Mind snapping that scoreless game Arosa Homerun to give us an early lead on guess Rodriguez who was lights out to you know he's dealing to Duardo Rodriguez. James Paxton things are lining up for me until I have a good process going in a good spot and drama and did a great job and I mix it up. Guys are making plays behind me. Paxton two-thirds Salsa Club evacuated. I would have to abide ride ninety five one hundred ninety five and the Yankees the only team that's hanging with them or the astros so remember talking about their win over the mariners they won twenty one to one well they put up. I think it was eleven runs in the first two innings last night and they wound up shutting out the someone fifteen nothing the as they beat fifteen nothing you're done Alvarez and I believe leave it was Robinson. CHARLEENA's both homered twice in the first two winning now when you say that with the way that the astros have like just drilled the as here that will give you a little concern because of the way he's played the as there's one game and the game no not at all it was in Houston wasn't in Oakland Okay so now is what I'm saying. That's why you WanNa have home field advantage. You don't WanNA play game. Seven and used won't homefield advantage is because of how winning Houston a couple of years. I guess you don't want to game seven evident use that I keep saying that David Ortiz did throw out the first pitch of the season tonight. The Yankees are in Detroit coverage on the fan at six. We have to go through that again man. That's going to be ridiculous awesome. It's going to be yeah. WE'LL BE AWESOME GO HOUSTON. Oh Yeah don't do that if you're in the AFC against usually game seven right yeah sure confines of the Stadium Stadion Right. That's where you want Monday night. Football the opener of the double header was the saints in Texans from the Superdome and this was back and forth in the fourth quarter in the end it was will lutts lining up from far far away fifty eight yard yard attempt for the Wind Bedrick snap waisman locks leans into it that is the great irony goal was one on the fan they did win thirty two twenty eight a fifty eight yard with time expiring for a will Lutts New Orleans island's Victoria's drew brees threw for three seventy and a couple of touchdowns Sean Payton. Did you really think he would make that kick well. We're running out with a fifty eight yard with two seconds so yeah the way he's kicking yeah but you know part of it is just trying to manage the clock with the last time out and as opposed to what happened as you guys already talked about in the second quarter with the official Sean drew brees. That's what I think forty nine fourth quarter comebacks which I think is the second most since the merger wow terrible man that was like that was like perfect deshaun Watson thirty to sixty eight in the last three touchdowns including the short lived. Go ahead lead and touchdown Kenny stills in the game's final minute in the end New Orleans comes up with the victory of the laid game saw the raiders. Take on the Broncos now Antonio Brown's in New England. He's Yuck got up with Tom. Brady and you would think that the raiders were going to come out flat and not play well well. If that's what you thought you were sorely mistaken because Jon Gruden had his team are ready to go. I go at the four-car to center. Ice Formation Spins off Jacob over the site digging turning. He's in for the touchdown. I don't know how old I don't Know Oh how we submarine but somehow sneaks into the end zone touchdown run four and the raiders extend their lead early in the fourth quarter over Denver who burrowed and submarine yeah haven't Harlan was guys. Yes you like it. They're playing on dirt and Oakland Yeah of course it the Ryen Greasy talking about last night saying Oh you know they got to use them like man. I'll be played on that crap about my whole career in Cleveland Miami Oakland and then like that original astroturf was in Philadelphia in Cincinnati in Houston. trying to think of meadowlands wasn't that great the plan either Houston was the worst though 'cause you you would actually run on the carpet to the sideline and you you would slip slip because the carpet would slip and then it would would move off of the cement pad that it was like us that Astro Houston Houston astrodome the way they did it was the absolute worst and it was like playing on the street out front. Pittsburgh was bad too. I actually I love playing in Cleveland because it was the big municipal stadium there and the sideline of the visiting team it was like a whole `nother football field behind us because because of the way the the stadium was configured baseball so we really didn't have any objects thrown at us. Nobody heckling you know but when you were down in the end zone where the dog pound was us all man I mean is keep your Chin Strap and look out look into the batteries and all sorts of stuff would be from twenty twenty four sixteen. The raiders beat the Broncos last night all right so some of the local stuff Pat Shurmur with Mike yesterday after the loss in Dallas in one and you know we're going to do what we can get to one and one and I think that's that's sort of where we're at and giants and bills on Sunday Okay Yep right ooh got it sterling shepard in the NFL's concussion protocol not sure if he will play or not against Buffalo Monday night. You've got the jets and the browns here's Adam gase. He did a conference call with reporters. Team didn't play a clean game. We made some mistakes and they were there fatal for us. You know we're GonNa take advantage of opportunities opportunity if we would have we would have different outcomes. That's every game Vick we as we know missed the extra point and MR field goal so he was asked about the kicking spot gave. You weren't around our free agency however you work. You regret not bringing back Myers a long time ago. I don't even remember wanted discussion was even back. I mean I might remember. I just WanNa tell you darn so so here we go here. We go this is this is clearly doesn't like Michelle Ready Yeah. This is great this is you could see this the guy that was data Miami now. We didn't see this as much because obviously we weren't as focused in on him as we are. Now Hill that guy talking about this. I thought Sam Darnold played a better game than you thought and then he kind of threw his receivers everybody actually every torch this whole team was conference. It's cold there was a lot going on in this to be interesting. Great Knowledge that the game change when Moseley left. We lost her middle linebacker linebacker Bert well. Now you have a couple of things here. Moseley's got the Groin Injury Quentin Williams a sprained ankle. It's not clear if either or both or neither will play Sunday Sunday or other Monday nights Sunday night eagles

Great to have you with us. I am in the studio. boomer is home and you've got Chris Lopresti essentially on vacation working vacation good for him as he is down the Jersey shore yesterday, he was outside on his deck, overlooking the road as the milk trucks were going by today. We as the image comes up Yep same spot. Chris. How are you good morning? I'm great. Yeah, there's not really a whole lot. I can do as far as bouncing around to different locations here. I've got to be close to the Internet router so lucky for me. This balcony is very close to where that is. Which looks balcony spot? I like that second floor. Yes, second floor, so a little elevated look of the road here as the sun's coming up over the house behind me, so my mom and my niece watch the sunset or the sunrise on the beach yesterday, so it's all. All good another Nice Day here. It should be excellent. We hope you have a nice day with the Yankees and Phillies what you got. Yes, so obviously, no. Yankees phillies last night, due to the MARLINS, covid nineteen outbreak in Philadelphia Tonight's game is still on a scheduled for now as of Eight. o'clock last night, the report was the yanks were still at their team hotel in Philly, expecting to play tonight. The phillies we're going through their own round of testing. They were still awaiting results there. If they play the scheduled starters, Garrett Cole and Zach effluence. Jay Is it. See Now all right. And Al Show Sheet we had Garrett Cole I assume they would wanNA. Keep him on his regular turn Yankee. Website has happened now that the film. They were going to start what Arrietta last night. Right so I guess they'd still go with him. Then they just amazing thing. Is You go to these websites? How many times they're wrong? Yeah, we learned that. We did your well. That's that was pro hockey. Talk or whatever this was. The Yankees website correct? Yes, so I will check the phillies website to see because I saw the Yankees website had half an Eflin. They had had no one else because he's on puts a show sheet together. So who knows what website? He's checked? MLB DOT COM. That's where it was. He is correct on that projected starter so so. WanNa keep coal on on his regular turn, but maybe not so I guess we'll. We'll find out if and when we learn. If this games actually going to be played. In the Aaron, Boone we've meets with the media and all that good philly site has happened Ariana. which was yes, fish match? Okay well. Go, we'll. We'll play guessing check on that all morning. And then hopefully we'll get some some clarity on that. In in short order now up at Fenway Park. The mets offense did break out with the home run ball. Don Cracks toward right center field back in the gap goes Berdugo, and that balls Outta here. Dom Smith gloves a three run homer. The mets of hit home runs in the last three innings. Conforto Lonzo and now Smith and the mets have built a seven nothing lead needed. It s ny say that again. They needed all of it. That's right, so they had the comfortable seven. Nothing came through me and now. Who should be the closer? We right! He came in not only to close the game the night, but he comes in 'cause familiar stinks in the eighth inning and he's got to come bail him out. You Got Chason. Shreve can't get through without giving up a home run. Good Lord I mean he's still. He's still got through two innings. It's OK that seven-run lead. The good news is is that Seth Lugo two times out to time shuts the door. That's what you say Michael. Walk I had a good night last night we did findings of one run ball for the wind in his mets debut. As you mentioned the bullpen, a little shaky other than Lugo, but they get the seven four victory unimportant wants this Peter Lonzo. Getting this is really nice. Bounce back win and. Whatever happened I. Guess the braves. It's just I mean. You can't change it now. It's two run homer rocket down the left field line just over the green monster in the third, also to run shot from Michael Conforto in the second. His looked more like what Luiz. Expected disguise offensive team. We we feel that. Or the type of team that can definitely produce. Their practice base running that'd be good to just I'm just saying first inning. During the I mean maybe not so much on the base running without the defense was going to be a point of emphasis and I feel like that's been. A little was awful on Sunday night. Yeah, they play Ozzy Sunday night, and they're as running. You know the funny thing about the base running is mcneal gets picked off left. e. e. see that happened a lot fine the Rosario one. Looks bad because you wind up getting thrown out after the video replay, but you get what he was trying to do with the. The unmanned base and third it just. You don't WanNa. Get thrown out there now that's. Good they they scored some runs. They won the game, but again a lot not to like last night a lot of room for improvement right? Yes, then I would say so. Yeah, absolutely. No question, the numbers on walk of five innings, five fits solo homer one walk four case admits that he a bit as the game went along, I was definitely getting a little bit tired there in the fifth inning. Just getting a little bit tired. shoulder and everything was still holding up but is. Probably my last inning, so we're already guessing on the Yankees phillies starters for tonight. The mets also have not officially decided on a starter for tonight's Game David Peterson apparently seems to be the likely choice right Boston going with Matte Hall first-pitch again seven thirty five. Oh No. No, no, you might be right I. I thought it was seven zero five. I'm sure you're right now. The end by the way I should've mentioned the Yankees. It's supposed to be six. Oh, five first pitch! If it's played so for those of you looking for the pre-game, that'll be five twenty five here on the fan this evening, so stay tuned on the scheduling there. You had reaction pouring in the marlins corona virus situation, the additional positive test. We learned about yesterday morning off their weekend with the Phillies so their home opener as well as tonight's game with the Orioles postponed as the marlins go through some additional testing themselves. themselves. Here's Commissioner Rob Manfred on the whole situation. I don't put this in the nightmare category I mean. Obviously we don't want any player to get exposed. It's not a positive thing, but I don't see as a nightmare to the point where he would go ahead and shut down the season right away. He does have that power. Though what would he do if and when they encounter a full on outbreak amongst multiple teams, whether that was shutting down a part of the season, the whole season that depends on the circumstances, same thing with respect to league-wide. league-wide where it does become a health threat, and we certainly would shut down, you think. Do you think they've sat in a conference room? And they basically put up a hundred different scenarios on the Whiteboard I would like. I would like to think that you have to have contingency plans for everything and you know. Go makes fun of me because I always tell him about the ways that worst case scenario like so he's going on vacation. I'm like a look, Gio. It's going to be one hundred freakin degrees. Go Get yourself an air conditioner trace Richard and be smart about it you're. You're is the worst case scenario. Yeah, it is you know that's how you have to do it, so I would say yes. Scenario! The sharks ending up on fire island that we're at Lido beach yesterday. Yeah, but he's for further East I. Worst case scenario would be the sharks swimming and. He's not going to be not so much. The heat in the breeze coming. There's an ocean breeze coming right through A. Thirty the water, he'll be fine, I guess so, but he did. Bring the air conditioning which was smart. Have you talked to him? I? Have I'm leaving them alone. Wonder, if he was able to hook it up or not, he looks. Checkout door checkout, but his phones not. boomers by Shark Cage. Chris, that was Manfred. Network and they did have A. They had a prescheduled call actually with all thirty owners yesterday afternoon I. Don't know what that was originally supposed to be about, but I'm sure most of the discussion centered around the coronavirus situation after what went on with the Marlins. Here is the honest response from nationals manager David Martinez Bouma reference to the open. He does have a pre existing heart condition and he is admittedly concerned. I'm scared. I really? Am You know so I go from here? Back here every day. That's all I do. Wash my hands. From forty seven times a day to probably ninety nine times a day. Out of uniform I agree with you should be kicked out of his hands the ownership. Step in and tell him sit this year out. You just won the championship. We're good. Just Watch, but I I don't know I. You know I know the I know the mentality I. Understand because we're going to see NFL coaches going through the same thing that are going to be you know somewhat in the same age group some we'll have some pre existing conditions and all that other stuff yet. They'll still show up because they're. They're football coaches, and that's what they do, and that's all they know so. I think when I hear him say that if I were the owners of the nationals, I would say you're done. You're done. You know what we're going to protect you. We know you're uncomfortable. And this is just not a good situation to be in, and by the way I think it also puts an added level of an added level or A responsibility to the players now because they do have somebody who is talking out loud about being afraid hundred percent, I agree I was just looking at their coaching staff just to see who's on. Who's the bench coach Tim Bogart? Who's been around quite a bit? He's worked under some pretty good managers and didn't many for the to did. Yeah, yeah, he's worked for. He's worked under Joel Madden. He's under Bobby, Valentine and Terry Francona so. He's he's definitely got some experience so on the nats though are off to a one and three start. They lost the Blue Jays last night four to one. We'll get you. Some of the other out of town results later on just wanted to mention Corey KLUBER member. Yesterday we played Chris Woodward. Saying things were not normal for him. They lifted him after one inning of his Rangers debut over the weekend, so turns out. He's got a grey to tear of the terrorists major muscle on the back of his throwing shoulder. That's the problem he'll be. Shut down for Harris Major Minimum four weeks no throwing for him, so there's half the season big-name pitchers that have not gotten off to good starts as far as their health goes jets. Gm Joe Douglas on conference. Call yesterday dressing the Jamal Adams trait of course, and before he even took questions wanted to clear the air on the Daily News Story from a few days ago. Where Adams claimed Douglas, it promised his camp contract extension. Offer this off season I just WanNa, make it clear. That I never I never promised an offer to Jamal or his agent nor was I ever dishonest or ambiguous in any communications with their camp. One hundred percent in this whole thing was fabricated by Jamal Adams in his brain and. Made Them Schmidt was an easy mark to to write a inaccurate article, and basically that's what happened. He got the opinions of one player without really knowing what what the truth was I. totally believe Joe Douglas Totally one hundred percent. And this Jamal Adams created this whole fiasco and good for the jets to get what they got in return for you know it's hard not to believe. Joe Douglas when he has been quiet. The whole time and Adams has been the one shouting from the mountaintops about wanting not to be here or wanting the contracts, and I'm with you. I agree yeah, totally great, Jerry. To is is that he's going to Seattle and he told Seattle that he's not. GonNa, hold out because he wants contract. He basically screwed the jets. Yes, hundred. The Royal, that's why yesterday I'm, take the jets, because of the fact that he would go play there with no long term agreement, and so you just of your jet Fan, you hope that the to draft picks. They got turned into big time players, or they can take one of those and make a move for a big time player and replace him. As. You have said many times. They have on a whole hell of a lot Jamal Adams here right he'd be. They'll do better with him. Gone now as good as he is, and no one's questioning talent. We know that. In what he does. What he, what his specific talent is is to be around the line of scrimmage and make tackles, and the way that p Carroll likes to play. Defense doesn't ask. Those guys do a lot of covering. Unless of course, somebody comes into their zone, and then they have to cover, but he wants those guys around the line of scrimmage making tackles, and that's something that Kam Chancellor did. That's something that Earl Thomas did when the Seattle seahawks had the number one defense in football. Football? That's why he wants. Jamal Adams and that's why it makes sense especially in the NFC west. You got yourself a hall of fame quarterback playing there. Go get somebody like him. The play on that team. He'll be happy he'll be motivated. He'll try to make sure that everybody realizes he. You know. He's the best safety in football although I'm sure Jordan of the buffalo bills would argue with that although he knows who he is because he hasn't bitch and complain all the time on twitter. But he himself is a very damn good football amazing, the louder you get, the more notoriety you think about. Who we think of as the best players in football whether it's you know, Odell Beckham Junior, whether it's Josh Norman whether Jamal at and they are I'm not saying they're not, but we think of them immediately more so because there in our face for that stuff as opposed to how good they are in the field. Really, is interesting. This one's a hard one because he is a good player in feel, but he's player he also he had. He wants scorched earth. He went oh Bj. He just went nuts on the jets and wasn't as popular in the locker room as everybody thought he was right. That was also pointed out by Brian Costello. Yes, which was accurate reporting and his colleague Mark, Cannizzaro, from the post echoed something similar on twitter after the trade just talking about how all they heard about when Adams was drafted. What a great leader! You know! Motion leader, what until on and so forth, and that's not the way it played out as far as the locker I guess. He was screaming at his teammates down against Jacksonville or something on the sideline and. It's easy to say look. I'm a winner I'm a winner. I don't WanNa. Lose I'm sick of losing I'm sick of losing. You know I'm I'm the best. There is I mean after a while the other guys on team. Roll their eyes and get sick of it. So what is the difference then when a guy like Tom Brady screaming? Is it because he's one so much? You're afforded that. You. Know that that that behavior because you really get that to from a guy like that. Who is on fire sometimes on the sidelines? I actually think when I see him on the sideline on fire. I think what he is doing is he is trying to amp himself up. He's trying to get himself into the game emotionally, and yeah, you know he may yellow team or something, or may yell at Josh, mcdaniels, and then the back, each other and everything's fine. But there are certain players that can't take that. They can yell at everybody else, but if you yell back at them, and then now you hurt their feelings, but there does have dealings, and and supposedly some team is trying to trade for you and you didn't know about this and you know you really get to wear. Jamal gotten where he got was. The point of no return, but there is something to be said for a guy that's won so often that it's a little different coming from him as opposed to. Just noise he can. Also the fourth quarter comebacks, the great place rose a super bowl victories, the MVP's super bowl and in the regular season. I would say so, and he has fun on social media. He's not. In your face on social media calling people out and wanted in complain about anything, so it's a little. Douglas also said it wasn't personal. They didn't rush to pull the trigger after Adams spoke out publicly in recent weeks, and he offered unprompted support for Adam gas in his leadership ability, after Adams called gas out in that article as well On the other side of this deal Pete. Carroll thrilled to add someone like atoms. How could we ever get a player of this name donor team where we've been drafted? You know in the low twenties and thirties or something ever in in that pick never allowed us that kind of opportunities myself humble brand. Wait a minute now. You Know Earl Thomas in Kam Chancellor late. Richard Sherman was a late draft choice I believe. Yeah may maybe been an undrafted free agent. Sixth Rounder for whatever reason that jumps out to me. I understand he has to say all that because of what they gave up, so he's got to make it look. In the I, guess the public domain and the public opinion polls that he's in love with this player, so we'll see how much in love they are with him next year when they go to give him a new contract, and we're also Wilson was picked seventy fifth, yeah. They've had some some. You know value. Liars Richard Sherman was fifth and Earl. Thomas was the first rounder. Say something like that then. You've got guys that are across the country that can pick out three players in two seconds. You did very well with the later on in the drift. Why would you say something like that? Even, even the. Crew or apparent that what you gave up to get this player a was okay. First round picks right, but but he's wrong because they've done very well. That's my point. It's not like they needed that. Top Ten pick to get really good players. They've done it over and over again. I think I. Guess What he's saying is aware. Adams went in the draft, compared to where they were selecting what they would have had to give it up to move up to select him at whatever it was number five number six. Rb hit on guys and develop guys obviously late in the draft. What what I remember most about when they first started there in Seattle, he John Schneider Up Caroline John Snyder with the amount of transactions. They had going on the amount of guys. They would just bring in an to try to find people from drafts, two undrafted free agents to. Veteran free agents. That were I mean they were bringing in puns and tons of is churning. Xactly, Carol yesterday courtesy of Sirius Xm now boomer. We talked about the Andre wondering about his whole situation with the giants and the exempt list, and what not he and Quinton Dunbar were placed on the exemplified yesterday with the criminal charges pending so with players reporting today Saas particularly for the giants. You're obviously not going to be seeing him though I guess it sounds like he and Dunbar were both going to. Appeal the placement on the list. So the one thing I read this morning was the Dunbar's attorney says they were informed. They were being put on the list because they were formally charged with I haven't been yeah, so that was part of why he felt they were going to put. The appeal felt they had a case Andre Baker's lawyer I. Think back on June fourth said I. Expect this thing to be no excuse him in about a week. This is a bizarre case I. mean this has been right from the start and continues to be as we start flers bizarre well. They're just. Could you do a job like that? What could you do job like that like? If you defended a guy, you know he was guilty, but yet it's your job to defend him, and then let's see. I think that he's guilty and there is. No that he's in some cases. You know he's guilty. Could you then more we? Do you have that in your I'd do that right when you're going through the evidence to defend the guy you know, he's guilty. And you. Want to get him set free. Yeah, well right exactly. Well that's. Why I played quarterback instead of became. Very true! so yeah. Jets and giants are reporting today. I've got the jets. Here so Adam. Gates will speak at two o'clock Darnold to twenty. Obviously, all that will be done virtually all those I d channel things you watch. Do they ever interview the Defense Attorney about that? No Day say. That they all pretend like they believe that the guys innocent well, they also always. Attorney client privilege. Now you go to bed at night leading guy off on murder that you know murdered somebody defense attorney doesn't have to be on the record for a specific case to sit there and say there have been cases where I've known. The Guy was guilty. Russian what is worse. Defense attorney kind of knowing that his client is guilty and then get them off or to a prosecutor, not really sure about somebody. Guilt and they put them away. Years later the ladder. They put the wrong guy in I. Guess both bad once. Yeah. The families of the victims might say the first, but I would think in a general statement. You would say the latter. That's tough one. That's me. I would never WANNA. Be In that position, not fun lastly Alex Smith was placed on pup Bob by the Washington football team at the start of camp, so I know he had the quotes in the interview the other day that he's been cleared all good, but the The team's GonNa take the cautious approach. They put him. Him, on, pop to start camp this way, they can leave him on pup when the season begins, so he's not going to be doing any team. Practices or individual team put out on twitter on its on its official twitter account that Alex Smith passed its physical. Yeah, I saw that dummies, and then you don't put somebody on popped if they passed their physical. So they gave away. Their own bluff is what you're saying. What that team needs like they've got a good coach. They got a good guy. Got The right guy at the right time. You know he's pretty straight up. You know all of us who know Ron Rivera covered Ron Rivera played against Ron Rivera, admire him, and that the Redskins got the right guy in there at the right moment. Now I say the Redskins I should say Washington football club. So. They needed GM though do not have general manager. At important. I think it is just a tad. Pretty much nets lost their scrimmage. They've got one hundred and seven points. Last, one, and now they've got their plans. Friday right wildfire game, or whatever the outgoing them diverted twenty-three Jared Allen of the double double all right so from our house. Best Friend, Jacques. Von later in the show. About knows who he is. So did the network Michael K instead of the nets broadcast that they went on tape delays. They did they did which? Happiest. Scrimmage of please I think the Yankees are slightly more popular than the nets. Fair right, thank you think that the nets will win a real game. Yes, I do. Here they've got the magic. The Wizards, the Bucks Celtics Kings Clippers magic again and the trailblazer. Tell me a kid like Lavar is incapable of putting up forty five points in the morning a game. And when I get the wizards, the wizard bell's not there yet. They could win. Win A game or to. Go Kings. Perhaps yes, they're not like they have to go out to the west coast or anything. They're playing in Orlando. It'd be fine exactly so there. You have thanks very much.

We Hear You C-Lo

"I would've told you that. The rays beat the Yankees last night in the Garrett Cole Start and Edwin as came in and walked in the tying run in the eighth inning and the mets somehow came back and won that game. If I told you that yesterday I was nuts. That's exactly what happened last night in baseball and CEELO's got some sound and some details Oh and by the way of also would have told you that Aaron Boone was singing Sweeney Murray's name for the came to you would've thought that I was nuts and then Ceelo just disappeared. That's one thing that was with CEELO's camera disappearing this other stuff not so predict during the whole first segment when you jerry were talking I was looking at the Monitor. SCREEN WITH FLASH IN THE ENTIRE TIME IT was like silver normal paranormal activity. It was like an apparition behind him. This is read most sensitive usb connection that's ever existed. Glad that you have it I should. Show. delay it'll. It'll be back. Don't worry. All right. Very good. All right. So you mentioned. The boone singing thing there and as far as our family bet on the Yankees went last night we should have known we were screwed when Boone did this during his pre game press conference is we were T- you're on the screen. I have no idea what the hell that was all about but it was a part one of a rough night for Boone, which eventually included his bullpen management as well when another loss to the raise here's the to. Line the Middle Is Basit Centerfield Lau turns third and scores and Tampa now takes a two one leaves abrazos comes through John Sterling eighth-inning call here on the turn terrible terrible term. Yes. It was boone stayed with Zach Britton instead of going Adamant Avino the raise their branch or so with the go ahead, pinch at RBI single the raise would add another before closing out a four two victory so. That's five out of six now against the Yanks and it snaps their streak of unbeaten home series at twenty-seven Garrett Cole did serve a couple of Solo homers than that though he was pretty dominant and did not appreciate being lifted with two outs in the seventh inning. US pretty frustrated when you were taken out, was that just a matter of you wanting to finish things off or what was that? Kind of that when you came out there. Yeah I WANNA defend I mean I was in a good position finish it. So he was very very careful with his words post game. You could sense the frustration and we certainly saw it on the screen when Boone came out to get him in that seventh inning when Boone comes out there do you say that to him or does he just say you're done? That's it for you. He made the move before even out there. So it didn't really matter whatever I said to him on the mound and whatever I said to him in my glove will just Will will it at that and Geo referenced before he said anything in his glove you had the expletive that was definitely caught on camera when he first turned around and saw boon coming out to the mound so not happy and to his credit boone not exactly surprised. I think that's just the competitor it I'm you know he's he's an AC wants the ball. You know I talked to him a little bit after the six when he was at ninety nine when I was considering making a move and he wanted the ball. So back out he went also you'd rather that than the guy that wants to come out a hundred percent and I even when he gets to the Dugout, he's still John and yelling about something that somebody is he goes down into the tunnel. So yeah, he was hot last night for sure. You had some odd pinch hit decisions by boone in this one is well Mike Talk for Clinton Frazier, instead of tyrod Strada and then in the ninth metro do hard for talk men instead of Estrada and not and do our promptly takes a couple of strikes and then Abed with three pitch at Bat. Really get nothing done there and nothing worked for the Yankees. Fourteen. strikeouts against only four hits in this one, they'll try again this afternoon. Siri Alley. Yes. It's rare that especially we we talked about any first time. He ever rooted for the Yankees in his life as he put some money on that I wouldn't necessarily say that I rooted for them. He wants to make an extra twenty bucks today. That's all even root for the many sleeping. Okay. Well, in your dreams I hope you're hoping to wake up to some good news as far as your wallet when I saw it, I actually laughed out. Loud. Now, we see. So people were calling they were calling Geo the Mush they're calling Jerry Moshe last really Eddie that's what it comes down to. Just rooting against it pretty much. But we we sit here we watch the Yankees all the time we watched them dominate a ton of home runs. They're great, and then when we put the money on and they're sitting there striking out fourteen times. G. Man Choi's just laughing at us as fast as rounding the base. It's just really is remarkable. I should have known getting in bed with a bunch of met fans on this hour. Don't really root for the Yankees, but it is what it is James Fan. Yes. That's one hundred percent why they lost James Paxton opposed by John Curtis it's I gotTa Start Watching More Baseball I. Guess I feel like I do but a lot of these opposing pitchers for both the Yankees and the mets I don't know any of these guys and I. Just I know the rays bullpen guys who has anyone of her to John. Curtis Snow Jerry Okay pre-game Twelve twenty five today Oh, by the way, Britain may have injured his hamstring in the eighth. Seen grabbing does he came off the mound and afterwards Boone said they were checking on him. We'll see about his status later on today it looked like we were headed for another double whammy is Dylan pretentious and Edwin. D As spit the bit in the eighth down in Miami but Michael Conforto saved it for the mets and the ninth. Could foretell cracks. went out to center field. Back. Goes. VR. Michael Conforto Putz the beds back in fraud. Big Clutch to run ninth today home on from Michael Conforto Gary Cohn and s n y a timely long ball to send the mets past the marlins five to three. Then struck out the side and the bottom of the ninth recovering from the bases loaded walk he had issued any eight which forced in the tying run here's Conforto on his big swing. Let's get one. Over the wall and just. Win The series right now. With this game that's three in a row. Now, of course, Jacob degrom left with yet another no decision despite six innings of four hit shutout doll definitely felt the effects of a layoff though don't pretty good You know not itching in ten days a little rusty. Got Tired quicker than I would have liked wouldn't have really noticed otherwise no walks seven strikeouts on ninety-one pitches and you could tell the mets were trying to stay away from Seth Lugo, in this one now, we know why he will come out of the bullpen to start this evening's series finale. Here's manager of the we throw Haas today we just committed to it before the game and Just had a conversation with math which was it'll be we avello for. US. So. There's your move. Lugo into the rotation not a one time conversation with Matt some of your Stephen Match you gotta expect don't you? Even when you know you've been that bad. Having the manager come to you the day before you're scheduled start and tell you that we're not starting you. You've been so bad. Come off. That's pretty much better. Nicer it I'm not. I'm not saying that he doesn't deserve it or any of that. You saw him the comments he made after last start he was as depressed as I'd seen a baseball player in a long time he was down he couldn't figure it out. It was awful. Now just having that conversation. Exactly regardless of how much you've sucked. It's it can't be fun May Stephen. Safe. Fun, I said it's expected. You've been so bad that we're going to pull this best arm out of the bullpen to start. With. Everybody talks the world sucks. So we're GONNA make our bullpen weaker because you've been so bad for us that we can't watch you anymore. So all right go and get them go against that side session going. Bud. No Good Daniel Costano starts for Miami. They'll try to avoid the sweep that is a six ten first pitch last night on the latest on the mets sale courtesy of the athletic. Steve Cohen remains the favourite a source hold on hold on I thought Jay I thought a rod and J. Lo were now the clear cut. See that's. Stupid somebody I yesterday the quote was the a source close to the era J. LO group said if Cohen wants this is his. So better. Be His i. told you man a better be? There's just absolutely no way can go any other direction. That's the only thing. I. Want You could would you sacrifice There's no like met fan here. That's Jerry's not gonNA see low channel I touch it. I bet you yeah. I bet you mets fans would sign for Steve Cohen absolutely being the owner if it meant that we had no NFL season. I bet you. They would make that trade. Forever I'd like to hear that's how important it is to the franchise that Steve Cohen be the owner for this one NFL season with corona. The whole thing I would I would sign for that. Yeah. I mean it would be one of the hardest things ever to not have football means by far my favorite sport but I think I would actually knowing what the future could be in wanting an owner like this knowing the alternative. J. Rod. Absolutely, I probably would make that deal. The other thing I read in that story was I guess Cohen after getting a look at the finances, which was the next part of this and the finances as expected were apparently not good it. I guess furthered his interest and that he's definitely GonNa make a big second bid and those bids are due by August thirty. What he did is you looked at the finances. Like how in the Hell Idiots lose this much money his team and that's what he said. Right? I can come clean this in the second. Yeah. No problem come on. There's like I've got a brain I've got the resources. Let's get these guys out of here. Let me step right in. Let's go. It is funny though it's literally three days after we were talking about the other two being the front runners it. Back and It just it goes to show. We were talking about until the bids arena. Why would you even write something like that? I honestly. Emma the this was on news channels and New York like CBS put on. NBC. Put It on the mets ownership Jira Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez the clear-cut favorites I mean come on at least the two days. Well I think a lot of it had to do with the fact of the things that boomer was talking about that. There's these leaks that happen and someone who is a reliable source to a guy like Bob Nightingale might be getting some information from somebody who is in the Reid group that wants to get Steve Kerr in with the wilpon rather wants to get Steve Cohen's bid up. So if Steve Cohen sees this, he's probably these guys is watching all the channels reading everything and he sees this what they're the favorites. Here's another billion. That's probably what was going on back channel sleaziness you know. Little. Back Channel Sleaze. was what. Nobody knows. Got To address the very bad moment for Thom Brennaman, last night reds veteran play by play men using a homophobic slur into an open mic on the TV broadcast. Last night coming back from a break which actually turns out. I. Read Wasn't even on the local broadcast I. Guess it went across MLB DOT TV because they have access to the local feeds and I guess they don't have the same commercial coverage nonetheless. It was said and it spread like wildfire on social media. We're not gonNA play what he said, but we can play for you is before the game even ended he addressed the incident on the air on I. Cut this down the only thing I cut out with some of the you know the Brett's and the dead air between didn't take any of his words about a minute long, and here's what he had to say. Earlier tonight. I guess. When out over the year that I am deeply Ashamed of. If I heard anyone out there. I can't tell you how much I safe from the bottom of my heart. I'm so very very. I pride myself and think of myself as A. A man fate. As a drive in a deeply fueled by Kosta Janos. And so that'll make it a four nothing ballgame. I. Don't know if I'd be putting on the set set again. I don't know if it's GonNa be for the reds. I don't. If it's GONNA be from my boss' at Fox apologized for the people who signed my paycheck. For the reds for Fox, Sports Ohio, for the people I work with. For anybody that I've attended here tonight. I can't begin to tell you how deeply sorry I am. That is not who I am. And never has been. And I'd like to thank maybe could have some people that Could. Back. That up. I am very, very sorry and I beg for Your forgiveness. Jim Dale take you the rest of the way home and that's the way that ended and the reds released a statement last night he's been suspended from reds broadcast effective immediately, and we'll see where it goes from here. Yeah. So a couple of things. One person who backed it up right away. It was curt schilling on twitter. He was he was probably like, no, no, no, no no. Never mind. No, it's fine but are a couple of things that went through my head right away was what is the conversation that leads up to that? No what is that? I like, I'm sorry. My brain works in a different way like people just focus on how horrible the word is that he used, and that's right. He's GonNa pay for that, and he's GonNa have to deal with that the rest of his life the. Fact that it gets on the air is another thing he's probably thinking about and I didn't even know that. MLB. Dot TV what's the conversation leads up to that and then also when did he find out? That this was everywhere and then to sit there and be calling the game and then someone says, oh, by the way that horrible thing you said, made it on the air and your life is over like. He's sitting there calling the game. The other thing I thought about is like what if like his wife or family was added a loop on this thing and then he has to like coal them afterwards and be like, oh? Yeah. By the way it isn't the game still on Tom Going on. Oh Yeah. Well, used a homophobic slur on the broadcast, and now my life is over I mean just. Totally, inexcusable that goes without saying but just to. Really just think about how this I mean this guy in by the way this isn't John Focke, the radio announcement for the Hornets Thom Brennaman is the son of a legendary broadcaster he's the TV. Of A baseball team that's been in his family for years and years, he's the number three Fox nfl football play by play guy. It's all. That's it gone. It's called Yene really off games in the past. Yeah. Well that to Fox baseball as well on top of it. so He's been right when when bucks doing football, that's where he is right except the baseball games. Yeah. I mean that he had built a tremendous career in the industry and it is all up in flames now because of some conversation that he had off the air where he decided to go in a dark direction. So I mean. I don't know there's really not much else. You can say about it and he knew right away and. I'll give him credit for not trying to well, it was not what I was saying it wasn't me I don't know I was a taped I. Don't know like he didn't. He just was like. What can I do? I'm Don. Thing is nothing again do you say? What happens that's I'm absolutely done. So I don't know is is that a guy he can project in the future gets another chance or not? Well. He's fifty I think he's fifty five now and you gonNA. Tell me in a few years. He's not horrible again I don't know. I don't know. I don't think he's calling NFL games this year then that's pretty clear. I wouldn't think I mean as been hasn't been fired and it was suspended. But I think he'll be back. I. Saw the reds released a statement I red. Fox. was planning to release one last night. I didn't see anything on I didn't either sheriff during the break I didn't see one other check that out. So that was the beginning of game two of a doubleheader which the reds and the royals did split and just on a much lighter note, the reds won the nightcap five nothing trevor. Bauer, in that game and of course, seven inning doubleheaders. So he goes complete game one, hit shutout three now zero point six, eight era in he's got this whole troll in the astros things going and he's got beef with rob Manfred again because he had he was. Planning to wear these cleats last night that said Free Joe Kelley and the MLB got into that and they shut it down and he had a bunch of tweets about that after the game which one sorry go ahead. No, I thought you were done which ended Matt Harvey Do is the Second One? Yeah. So he yeah, they lost five nothing is three innings, four hits, three runs. So kind of more of what we've seen for him in recent years not a lot of length couple of home runs allowed couple of walks and not all that effective but he did pitch that came for Kansas City and just to finish up on the Bauer notes. So he tweets that Carlos Correa Since he didn't to use the goes, Hey, at team CJ career. If you want these hit me with a shipping address, I got you. So he continues to have some fun with that whole situation there. Quickly NBA wise the nets losing they played a much better game tighter game with the magic they were in late there were winning into the fourth quarter. Yes. They were where they got out scored thirty, two nineteen, and then blew a chance late to tie it up temple side twenty-eight. Football. bounces it into Harrison top lose right hope fake lowry all over his temple office leg dives near the midcourt line couldn't save it. Pal comes up with it hunt contested a slave for Toronto. Chris Career. Fan Yeah bad hand off there, and that was pretty much shot as they ended up losing by five here was temple afterwards talking about that exchange with Harris. Complete handle. Saunder is to You know I'd say, lame on that if you ask Joe, he'll say he'd take. Takes two. He was all hot and bothered with the reps at the end there when the game is really out of hand he felt shoved when they were down five in the last couple of seconds even if it's a foul there and he hits all three free throws they're down to with what a second or two left. So he said there was really about the hand. Off that's what costs them the game they're down to Oh game three tomorrow at one thirty making matters worse Harris left the Orlando Bubble afterwards due to a non medical personal matters. So unclear if he'll be but I don't think it matters right if he left even if he comes back, there's no way he'd be ready to play tomorrow because if they would not be. Right. So they're they're in bad shape. They played competitive first couple of games, but they're down to I would give you the rest of the scores but I'm way late. So we'll get to more NBA NHL later on coming up next hour. All right, very good ceelo little did I know when I joined permanente that it would be on my top ten list for what has made this year great I can see my physician I can be referred to the lab I can be referred to the pharmacy on same building you you've got it all I mean it's it's quality of care it's compassionate care it's convenience of Care Mr. Every medical cases unique concert penalties.

"This you know in twenty, eighteen, thirty, four percent of fatal crashes involved alcohol. Did you know in twenty, sixteen, Forty, four percent of fatal crashes involved drug impaired drivers. Did. You know that being under the influence of any drug is drug impaired driving. Call a CAP, order a ride service or ask a sober friend Dr if you're under the influence of any drug visit, Chesterfield's safe dot org for more information. I talked so much Dan allender hockey prior to this game. So many people out here into the islanders already GONNA, wind? Geo Are they gonNA win and I said his brain point play and I need to know that I think they're going to win. Should I bet him I'm not telling you to bet anything just sit back enjoy the game I know they'll play hard for ya they did. But of course, it didn't get done. Yeah Good Morning I'm exhausted I the the amount of sports I had. Yesterday was insane because I went back and I watched the US. Open all afternoon. Great to have. NBC have the US Open back in here Dan Hicks talking about wing foot and the history and everything else that was unbelievable. Then I take a break have a little dinner. Then the mets and the Yankees start in the middle of all of that you have homerun barrages all over the place for the Phillies who I thought would just gonNA knock set Lugo out of the building. Let. Alone his his his pitches. The Yankees had the barrage. You got the football game where Joe Borough attempts sixty one pass temps. He completes thirty seven passes both the rookie records no interceptions, and it's a pretty much entertaining game between he Baker Mayfield the. Bengals and there were some fans obviously. At Cleveland Stadium. So that was an insane game, and then of course you have the heat and the Celtics and you have the heat going up to o on the celtics coming back from seventeen point this time and the Celtics have a brawl on brawl a verbal brawl after the game and their locker room people go nuts all over the place the pandemic is having. Quite, the effect on everybody we need mental health in sports I can tell you that right now, and then of course, you have the islanders going into overtime last night and I had no idea that Adam Pellerin was hurt i. knew that they were going to be missing Casey's Ezekiel's no dominated filled an admirable yet a couple of bad shifts at the end of the day. You know what in order to beat a very, highly skilled team with a great great goaltender. In, Andrei Vasilevskiy, you've gotTa have all your pieces and unfortunately. The this NHL and trying to win the Stanley Cup. It is a war of attrition and everybody knows it, and this is why it is really I to me. It's the hardest trophy to win because you have to wait you have to win the most games you gotta be physical and all those games you get hit with Pakshi get hit with sticks you get hit with penalties. You got you got a shortened bench guys out there diving trying to block pox on both teams by the way not just the islanders but I think the loss of Adam Pelican Casey's Zico. So's to really really really hurt the islanders, their depth, their physicality, their speed and All could say is that you know the is really I mean they showed they showed a lot of what their general managers all about, and by the way he did win the general manager of the year for the NHL, which is not surprising because l'amiral even at the age of seventy seven or seventy eight still got all his moral still understands what it takes to win on the ice and put a team together and and he unburied Trotsky, did that. So I know for my son in law they're extremely up there said, they're really sad but they have nothing hang their head about I mean they played their asses off they gave their fans and they gave me. Hockey that meant something and to be able to watch it so. I can tell you. Wouldn't Brock Nelson had the breakdown God well yeah. Sure. Handed opportunity to. Run a great architect, what a what a great steel and unfortunately brought couldn't bury it. But again, you're going against the world's best goaltender and. Try to do though it was like an over. Thank of now listen you know hockey hell of a lot more than I do and I talked about it at town in Pittsburgh I haven't talked about it as much when I say this I don't want to seem like, I'm some sort of hockey expert but it seemed to me like you know Vassil Leschi Kinda choked off that one side of the net and left the other side open and brock decided to go to the side that had choked off and the whole. Even the color commentator had mentioned is to that whole. He was a lot of space and you know check your. God I just I don't second guess. It's one of those things that I'll never be in that situation in my life to be able to win a game the game seven in eastern conference final with the puck on my steak with a breakaway. Yeah. But seeing that in slow motion and knowing that could've been the game winner was excruciating excruciating even more excruciating is the game winner. fanlight. Somebody was Lazy on defense and didn't get back and should have been a lower net would have been matthew bars who had a tough series. I mean, you know he's a great player. We could all see. He's a young kid. He'll learn he's gotta learn to use his teammates has got to learn the pass a little bit more last night was one of those nights where he was trying to do it all and I would never ever take anything away from his overall effort. It was it was amazing. He's going to be an amazing where you could say it the puck sticks to his stick. Like no other. He's basically like he could win probably the gold medal in the. Olympic. Figure Skating. Final Sir I think that's how great of a skater he is. He does have a sense of where he is and who he is as a player I think last night probably try to do a little bit too much especially on the power play but you know at the end of the day if you said to bury trots look, we're GONNA take the game into overtime. We're GONNA give you a heart attack by taking a four minute penalty at the regulation again and I do believe. I I saw Anders Lee and Matt talking to the officials after that period was over and I think they were saying to the officials Kucherov made himself bleed to get the four minutes I think they were very upset by that and of course, Andy Green much like Anthony Beauvilliers the game before takes that penalty but. Things happen man you know it's just they're highly skilled team. Got Grit versus skill. What what I, what I saw in this series and when you lose Adam Pelican cases, Zeke is to or you're really more important grit grinded out physical guys You know the chances of winning down significantly but the credit give semyon Varlamov a ton of credit he made I would say probably between twelve and fifteen ridiculous game saving saves until that last shot on goal your I mean, and also the first goal and I'm not nitpicking here it's just you have to point out I mean the First, one, he gave up a really big juicy rebound and it was right after the islanders took the lead and Kinda sucked the momentum right out of him. But other than that, I mean he was facing shot after shot after shot was one point I looked up and what was it like twenty, four, six in the middle of the second period the shot differential from the lightning to the islanders and I said you know Varlamov actor look like he was getting better more shots he was facing. But. Yeah. Yeah. He needed to play the game of his life again and he almost did he really almost did a he actually did he did play the game his life is the islanders could have gotten a break here there of Brock, Nelson could've buried it. It would have been totally a different thing and he would have been sliding on the ice again I keep did after game five but. It was an improbable run their team came together. You know one of the reasons they got to where they got to through this situation was because they came back. Totally healthy. That was the thing they had lost so many guys during the season and. One of my own son-in-law running into an open door in Ottawa to Casey Zeke and CALC Lauterbach slice in his wrist I. Think it was against pit against Philadelphia or whatever, and then they all came back and then unfortunately the injuries hit them again much like they hit the Tampa Bay lightning I it's a war of attrition but man It was intense. It was everything that you know a lamour alot team has always. Possessed when he was with the devils, the same thing if he would have been able to control the Toronto Maple leafs maybe the best thing that happened to everybody is that if he were up there running the maple leafs and you know the way that he would have wanted to run it. They may be a dynasty for the next five or six years. So the fact that he left and he came to the islanders and gave them Jin missy culture took garth snows, players added some of his own players made some. Key Trade for the J G Patio, trade, and of course, bringing, send me on Varlamov on a four year deal. All significant even knowing that they do have a young Russian goal that's coming over here. So. It was a sad ending but man what what a what a run they had and gave me a lot. I do and I do appreciate the game that Mike Emmer called last night, and at the end of the game as they were in the handshakes, he mentioned Matt and you know seven or ten days after. Daughter was born winning. You know he hasn't seen her for over two months and highlights highlights. Truly. The sacrifice it all the players are making. The NHL had no families around I. Think the NBA does have some families around town and the bubble way are now. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But the NFL has nobody. These guys have been on their own now for the last two months and they've sacrificed and like I told you, I think you know the country of Canada was not going to allow. The American families to come and see. Their their their family members playing in the Stanley Cup final. So that means the Tampa Bay lightning in the Dallas. Stars, families cannot go to. Edmonton. So those guys are on their own as they move forward and. I went from being fully invested in this and really enjoying this run because we haven't had a lot of deep playoff runs in New York sports. The last couple of years to now being completely out of the Stanley Cup final I could not be more out of lightning stars. I mean this this is going to be I will learn about what happens with lightning stars. Ryan Jerry tells me about it. That's when I will find out about. Especially, with that lightning team in Michigan and everything else I mean I hope I'll be rooting for Dallas just for that reason alone but I mean I know you're a hockey junkie and you're gonNa tell me how these two great teams is going to be a battle and all of this I mean I'm sorry for a guy like me that surrounded by islander fans out here at every turn and got into this and. Enjoyed it, and then that connection with you when we talked about it to now having them out and then actually going to with everything else going on in sports with the NFL starting if I'm GonNa take one look at that lightning star series I got something wrong with me well do is they're going to restart in about six weeks. So whoever does win the Stanley? Cup there's not going to be a lot of time. To be celebrating it because the season's start in. December and you know here we are in September and we got football. We got everything else going on and by the the US Open yesterday NBC does a great job with it and wing foot play a little bit easier than everybody expected Justin Thomas shot a five under yesterday. Amazing. Amazing around there were two hole in ones yesterday. Which is amazing to Patrick. Reid had a hole in one and. The other guy who had the home on but. It was it was an amazing. Display of just awesome. Awesome golf yesterday because this golf course was supposed to be really really tough now I think they'll toughen it up here the next three days they're they're they're just where the pin placements were. Most of the time yesterday were very approachable and you saw some unbelievable golf was great to hear Dan Hicks and the doing it Mike Tirico. Doing. It just sounds more comfortable and then comes the football game last night and you got Joe Buck and troy. Aikman doing that game and then of course, you have what's going on with the Yankees just barrage home runs all over the place of Luke voight. By the way I mean he's gotta be like one or two or three in terms of MVP. I mentioned that the other day I mean it's it's really an especially with the injuries. The Yankees have dealt with and he was the guy that carried him through that to me is the definition of an MVP. We talked about some of these other guys in Bray you with the White Sox, in the season that he is having and we are very Yankee focus but yeah, I mean Luke void for sure he's a guy that has that he's going. To, get a lot of MVP votes, and that'll be interesting and I know that I've said many times individual awards don't mean as much but you can't tell me that a guy like luke void winning the MVP and the American League wouldn't be really really a great thing and also I was thinking this extended playoff that they said they were trying to consider they were going to consider you wait to joy to make the awards after watching the playoffs. They won't do that. Because not yet, they won't. But. I was. With the here's what I was thinking. So you've got the mets. Right. Well. They came back last night I know I know but here's the point right so I, think that this team is not any good and here they are still two games in the loss out of a playoff spot. Now, there's an article written I. Think it was Joel Sherman. This morning he's talking about see you know this dramatic comeback and the mets being who they are and still having giant. The playoffs is exactly why Major League Baseball wants to continue the extended play offs and I understand that side of it where it's like, all right more markets are involved. A Fan base is involved in the team normally wouldn't be and that's exciting but also the flip side of that is. They don't deserve this. They don't deserve to be in a playoff conversation or not. Well, you know like just remember it's only a sixty game season when we get to one hundred, sixty, two game season again. Then what I mean like they told me that they were going to. Chop off a quarter of the regular season and then expanded playoffs IB. Cool with that. But if we're going one hundred, sixty, two games with all these teams, it's a war of attrition right now. For these pitching staffs. Teams. Don't even have pitching staffs. Sixty game season of why do you think these records being broken home runs and you say every time you look up is a nineteen to two game or twenty five or something ridiculous. I don't know at first glance I don't like it and I understand getting more markets involved why you want to do that and it's such a regional game these days it's not the national pastime like it was I mean I can't argue that side. Of It, but I just there's something about teams that don't deserve to be in the playoffs they get into the playoffs that is annoying it just is, and generally those teams don't do much I mean you you see it from time to time with the division winner in the NFL at seven and nine or eight and eight. I remember that Hasselback team with the Seahawks I think that they were seven and nine, they won a division at. The cowboys Tony Romo flubbed the extra point. Yeah I. Think. So and in the next week was the or would that was that the team racing we're going to get the ball and we're GonNa win against the. was was that was that a playoff game or is that what off game on the road in in Green? Bay after they had beaten the cowboys that was the same year accuracy lunatic anyway This is like, would you look at like for instance, you look at the? The Toronto Blue Jays They lost eighteen to one to the mets. They lost twenty six to the Yankees Thirteen to two Yankees and they gave up Thirty three they gave up forty three runs and three games and keeps it Yankee. Stadium. I if you gotta be. You gotta be walking around talking to yourself you know. Think about it is is that this is just like Could see the Yankees again up in buffalo for four games after they I guess Philadelphia, and then they got the Yankees and then ended up with Baltimore. Just forty three runs forty, four hits nineteen home runs. Yeah. I writers it's unbelievable and then I tell you between that and what happened to go last night and then the mets somehow claw their way back into that game. And then Flipping over to the football game and watching may may feel than Joe Borough, go out it re. Reminiscing of me and Bernie back in the days in the mid eighties. But we didn't. We never had games like that I can tell you this. There was no defense last night the defense now horrific. Yeah. I mean in the browns are feeling themselves now and watch they're going to get too cocky and I know Kevin's too fancy talked about we're not gonNA ride the roller coaster but these guys I mean they got a little taste of winning last night and you know they're gonNa go the defending Odell actually had a decent game and caught that long touchdown pass ended up. Being reviewed and they gave it to him. Still we're still thought that he was little short of the goal line but whatever. But now watch them get all cocky and Baker. Mayfield and Odell are going to start yapping and Jarvis Landry it'll. It'll melt down at some point and the Bengals were in this game. They never wasn't like a situation where you felt like they the browns at completely pulled away the bengals were always there in the last touchdown was garbage touchdown and make it look a little closer but. Joe Borough. Cloud he's unbelievable right? Games, you know social barrel. Deal man it looks great. Told you when when we met him. After. He won that Heisman I said, you know this kid's a hell of a lot mature than he looks he looks really young but he's not he's He's twenty three. He's basically Sam Darnold sage but you know he already has what I want. Sam Darnold to get. I mean those yeah, well. But I also think he's probably got a little bit better supporting cast around and offensive line is terrible. I mean as offense horrendous the amount of hits he has taken the last two weeks and the fact that he's running with the ball and everything but he's sixty of ninety, seven, five, hundred, nine yards and three touchdowns in two games. That's a rookie man. He's making it look too easy. He's got. He's been sacked three times. He's probably been hit about twenty times. So I, I WANNA. See Sam Darnold act like him on the field or at least looked like him on the field or look like Dan Daniel Jones the pill. That's how Daniel Jones look the other night. Now did Dana Jones is planning much tougher defense a much more. Difficult to decipher defense. In Pittsburgh than you know the browns play four three and it's easy to see who's coming in the blitzes and most of that stuff is a little bit easier playing that from a pass protection standpoint. But I, do think Joe Borrow has better skill players around him not higgins looked pretty good last night AJ Gringa banged up again and dropped a few balls. They do have Tyler Boyd and John Ross Oh the Joe Mixing Giovani. Bernard. So they they have some players that can actually help him as opposed to Sam Darnold who's I feel like going out there sometimes by himself. Right and that's why I said during that whole time with Ravi Anderson. Contracting Tried to keep him and I know that they went and they drafted Denzel mims. Bouchard Perriman but it's just like another year he's trying to learn who these guys are. It's tough. He's not GonNa Have Levy on Belleville even matter I mean I. Think we both on the same page could be a positive thing because even levy on Belco is more of a versatile back than what Frank Gore is. At this point I mean having Frank Gore be your lead back and get most of the carries might settle down that offense in the huddle. It just provides a little bit of professionalism in there because you know he's not going to be doing anything goofy. But. Yeah, I mean. They don't have any weapons. They don't have any weapons and their defense really any good in they're just sort of a mess. You just hope that the offensive line can hold up enough to make them respectable because that was the point of emphasis in the off season for Joe Douglas, and then you hear MCI Becton who's doesn't seem serious but he's dealing with a knee thing already got your rookie left. Tackle with a banged up knee going against Joey Bosa. Okay. That should be fun but yeah, I don't know it's it's a it's a mess for them. I could see them playing better and not being down twenty one nothing in this game. But the question is, will they have enough to win with their schedule which is not quite as hard as the giants but t to win six or seven games that even possible. Roster that can do that and my answer to that is no well, I would say this is so you watch the Bingo game is not your Bengal Fan just like if you watch the giant game on Monday night and your giant fan you come out of those games saying men are defense stinks but our quarterbacks going to be really good. So you have the most important question answered and for Jet Fans, they don't have even that question answered right now they are wondering about their quarterback that's the problem you you're starting to hear more. Of that, now, obviously, the writers are writing that and when you have a bad game, you have to deal with the entire week of that. But Sam Darnold has been pretty resilient in his career and after a bag, you know yet that goes game last year and then one in six out of their last eight games I. A-. After those comments and how we all reacted to those comments that could have put the kid into into a coma but but it never did he actually fought through it. So that's part of the personality trait. That you WANNA be able to see I just WanNa see him be more relaxed man I want. And it's hard. It's hard to be relaxed when you're playing against buffalo in buffalo because they have a good pass rush and now you've Got San Francisco who's bringing a good pass rush but I would just say you know Pittsburgh wrote a good pass Russian. Daniel Jones, handled it fine. Made a couple. You know interceptions and made that really bad decision down on the goal line. But for the most part he handled it and that was Joe Burlap on even again even comparing Joe Borough to Baker Mayfield last night Baker Mayfield still running around like a maniac at times. Joe Borough, never did that he never lost his cool. He looks like he has belonged since day one is one of the reasons why Zach Taylor and the Bengals have been speaking. So highly of him and why a rookie quarterback was named captain. Does that what was the last time that happened? Never happened. Yeah. I I don't know. But yeah, I mean he has that winning attitude. He's got that maturity already and right now it looks like he's a star in the making after a couple of games. I know that it's very very early but that's the way it looks and that team is a team even though they don't win a lot of games, the bengals they're going to be a tough out there. The point though you have your jet Fan, that's you could live with that last night. Sure. Of what you saw from the giants on a Monday night it's called competitiveness. Sure. It's called getting after it and it's called your quarterback show employees and I don't think Zach Taylor ever thought that they were GonNa throw sixty one times going into the game but their offense of line is so bad. In certain spots and Troy Aikman pointed out a couple of times. There right guard is a is a mess in in Cincinnati but now the Yankees Their next seven games or away from home three in Boston four up in Buffalo Against Toronto and then they finish at home versus the Miami Marlins does the home run barrage continued tonight. Sure. I got no reason to say, no other than odds of this happening is pretty slim, but I didn't think they were GonNa do it again last night and you five home runs in an inning for crying out loud. So somebody I don't know what was more believable watching. What happens Lugo Watch Janke just. Think. Five home runs in an inning and doing it again and and having this type of offense. It's the most runs scored in any regular season or any series period of any length. One team against. Think about that, it's just insanity what they did to the Toronto Blue Jays. So and everything's rounded into shape for them at the exact right time. So should be a nice playoff run for the Yankees that we all expect. It even know that was in doubt on not that long ago. All right boomer and Geo and a football Friday on the fan and CBS sports. Network just getting started jobs about a lot more than a paycheck. It's about your dignity and in my plant fifty percent of emergency small business relief would be reserved for the smallest businesses to recover from the economic mess were in and to rebuild the economic future. Our country deserves building wealth for families of color building a future worthy of their courage and our ambition just imagine. Could truly unleash their full potential. I'm Joe Biden candidates for president and I approve this message paid for by buying for president each the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo Capita Jerry back today on this football Friday with everything else jerry good morning what's happening over there? I J Good morning brought to you by while our painting designed Benjamin Moore's largest paint dealer in Westchester Putnam and Rockland County have to start with the islanders because their season to come to an end last night, and I can play other calls for you throughout the morning. When there's only one call that you need to hear. Then that would be the game winning goal. Now, there's a couple of options here. We could go the Tampa call I spare you of that or you go NBC Sports Network Call. So I've heard all of them. I've actually I watched the one last night obviously on the and then this morning, the Michigan call found me. Well, let's hear young. Parkway. Rally shoot. Scott. The. Line. Do. Can't stand it and it Phil Esposito that's a touchdown. No thank God. Touchdown. Man It was pretty bad to one the forbade call it boomers out of hand call bad call come on by have to put me in this situation. Doesn't have a great voice that's all you know. He doesn't have the DOC Emrick high pitch and everything else they're thinking. Does that whole thing I was sounds like a fake ghost. Targeting hang outside of your house during Halloween. The. Opposite of Chris King Chris King is high pitched. Screaming, and yelling his calling the game winner. The other night for Jordan narrowly was unbelievable. Ridiculous how good it was but I I was just thinking last night as I'm watching the hockey game, I'm listening to DOC emrick going up and down it's like go into a Broadway play just listening to him describe what's happening I wish they would put him in the NBC Golf Booth just for like one day and when guys hit home and ones like we saw yesterday winged foot have him call those I wonder what those would sound like if you do it like he would do it as a hockey announcer. So I have to ask this because Chris King Cole we do have but I'm not sure we're allowed to play that you. Call from last night nine not from the other night. Okay well. There you go I. Do not believe we are. Which is why we didn't end just set me up with that. You all a little tired this morning I would say eighties taking advantage of. Totally. Schmuck I'm like I. Don't know what you're can't replay it is only allowed in the has is the Mr Bill Drama Oh, man anyway. So we did Dave Michigan there on lightning radio to on the final overtime Anthony's Torelli the game winner on Raza Levski with twenty six saves buried Trot says his team showed a lot team is just as I said to him this is one of the most resilient teams I've I've coached and coach for a long time. So I'M Real proud of what we. We've done at the end of the day they came up short still a lot in front of it again until you you climbed that mountain, we got We got fairly close but. You. Know we can see the mountain top, but we never go to the mountaintop and yeah, and then one from Lee I wanted did the team show everyone a lot of pride. Character. Resiliency a special group in in our room. and. To that very last minute and that's just. Every single one of us believe than any other can hear the disappointment in his voice same Orlov with forty six saves in the loss Tampa advances to the Stanley Cup finals control take on Dallas. All right to the baseball and the Yankees hit well a lot of home runs matter of fact, a five homer barrage really incredible. In the fourth inning I'll give you the back to back to back and belly to belly to belly want then Anderson deals swung on and line deep right center field hit his high. Far. Has Gone into the Yankee Bullpen. Let the GARDY party begin. All right. So THAT'S THE FIRST NEXT PITCH MOVE DJ These swings as fly ball down the right field line that ball is gone over the wall boy does he had that stroke down inside out stroke to right field? David John Makes Gone I don't know what that was there, but it's usually. Might have stumbled on that and then the next pitch here's luke void. and. He swings and drills one the deep right center field that ball is high that is far. Gone. Into the Yankee Bullpen in right-center. Boy Hits One tuna troy. Here is cool hand Luke with his Major, League leading twentieth home run of the year. Really amazing back to back tobacco. Bell yeah and then after Aaron strikes out what happens back back home runs from Stanton and Torres the Yankees hit just a boatload of home runs beat the blue ten to seven here as Aaron Boone as they sweep the series that's impressive series right there. Yeah asked about the way. Major League Baseball history with six home runs in three straight games. War Stanton. Four for five last. Starting more like himself here was stanton says he's feeling that really my my balance and timing felt much better today. Than the first game I played and I always liked this one. Yeah. What what should we do with staying here said date when he's going to get hurt again or should we do muscles again what I'll tell you what I'm GonNa take he plays the rest of the way. Including the playoffs? Yes. No injuries. All right. There's there's not going to happen right Jerry can take that. If you want because I, I'll take in that. I I will say, let me take a look at the calendar quickly here two more games left. So they're gonNA. Pick a date though. When I want to pick it because I don't know like the playoffs now it's going to work where to go and everything I will say. Symptom. Temper twenty-ninth. It'll. It'll happen before he will not play after September twenty. So you think he's not gonNA be around for the postseason. That's right. Yes. September twenty ninth is where Giancarlo Stanton, that'll be either his last game, but he will not anything after September thirtieth you won't see now are boomer this this season ends one, twenty, seven, th G. The twenty, let's see. Their last game is to he will not be in the postseason basis what I'm saying. Their last game is schedule pop up their last game is the twenty seventh year. You'll make it into that first around. it's a pick a game so he'll make it into the first round against the twins if that's who they end up playing because that's who right now they're scheduled to play with that could change the way that they're playing right now in ten games to go if they finish up eight and to who knows where they'll end up. You know I I see we're going with this like all right. They're gonNA. Make it to the playoffs and they're gonNA play a three round series and he's going to get hurt in the first game. He's going to be out for the rest of the playoffs I say no. I'm with Jerry I'm saying that. Whatever it takes to keep him on the field I don't care if tape it's aspirin its shots whatever it is. He's GonNa do whatever he can to make it all the way through wherever they end up. Okay. I say he will not play in a playoff game. I don't think he'll be in the lineup for a playoff game l. what do you want to take? Do you WanNa take the actually play in? A playoff game, he plays in two playoff games. Okay. All right. So we'll see but boomer and Jerry on the same page. So it's Kinda tough to make a wager on this, but we can just keep track of it and see see who's right bill. It's hard. It's hard to feel bad guy that's three hundred billion dollars and everything else but you know as a former I just WANNA. See The guy play. Giancarlo. I WanNa see him play and I wanNA see him kind of make it through. She's the last two years have been unbelievable Masahiro Tanaka seven innings for the win eight straight for the Yankees who go to Boston tonight. Jordan. Montgomery. The start on the FAN and WFAN DOT COM MED stop the phillies ten, six, Brandon game-tying two run triple in the sixth go ahead home run in the night. Dominic Smith big game a homered, and the first RBI triple in the ninth Robbie can singled and homer. This was a game the mets trailed six to three and they score the final Final seven runs, and this was also a game or seth. Lugo had nothing in the bullpen went the rest of the way allowing just one hit here was Lewis Ross the bullpens been outstanding. One of the things that is outward will Years and he went the first two in a third followed by shreve familiar Wilson who got the win and Wendy as through the last inning tonight the mets, the Braves Stephen Matt's is back. He will face Max read freed six zero on the season Matt's looking for his first win. Also, the White Sox beat the twins four three become the first American league team. To clinch a playoff spot quickly because I know we're running out of time already, the Browns beat the bengals thirty five to thirty Baker Mayfield to nineteen couple of touchdowns one. The Beckham Nick Show Buck Twenty four and two scores in the loss Joe Borough three, sixteen, three touchdowns no picks did have a straps a strip sack where he fumbled. Script borough This losing thing stinks. Time in my sporting career that I've lost two games in a row doesn't feel very good. So good attitude by the rookie there once better Sunday the giants are in Chicago to play the bears quickly I'll give you saquon Barkley and his response to tiki critique. Obviously, he's a legend the a lot of great things for for this franchise. So you know I'm not gonNA, look at it as disrespect I'm as a challenge but same thing with him like everyone else I don't care about side pins. Only, folks about depends on his in this building and. I'm like kind of like yet a fumbling problem everybody knew it and then he did something about it. So I have a pass blocking problem I, everybody knows it and do something about it. Right? That would have been a good answer. Yes. Very true. I jets niners on Sunday Bucks to the Panthers Tom Brady asked about all the stuff with Bruce Arians. Working for all time out of Second Hera's you think there's a perception that you haven't taken a lot of criticism from your coaches before I don't think this is something that surprised me this week is. Also is question. Just just with you're surprised at all to hear Bruce speaking publicly about the picks and being critical of the issue was. He's coach so. Player. Just trying to game. There you go. New. surprised. How surprised were you were? You surprised? Did it surprise you? Oh, my God he's there's nothing you can throw at him or bill belichick that they're not going to be able to sidestep with extreme skill. No matter how hard you try now. Is the. Big differences between the two of them is that bowel check doesn't have an instagram account and Tom. Brady does. So he can you know post sayings and Things of that nature and get. Quote. Unquote. What expect him to throw five for five hundred yards this week chargers center Mike Pouncey hip surgery will miss the rest of the season heat beat the Celtics one, zero six, one, zero, one ticket to lead eastern conference finals the outscored Boston. Fifty nine, forty one in the second half I game Western Conference finals, Lakers and nuggets and first round of the US Open Justin Thomas Nice. Low score a minus five showed sixty five one-shot lead on Patrick Read Matthew Wolf and Thomas. Peters all I could think about was the guy who bet forty five thousand dollars Phil Mickelson to win this thing anyway. Way. Plus, five thousand dollars it's gone just like that. Don't make one looks like me yesterday playing wing foot. And kept hitting the ball left as it has a righty. You know you just get so frustrated and they actually had him. They caught him on the course saying I'm so sick of this. And I'm like, I know exactly what he's sick up because that's exactly what my game looks like. Scramble like he can normally I would take three swings at a frigging. And Did it just not cut the lawn over there? All purpose? Is supposed to be nicely groomed the nicely it is. In the right spots man, he hit the ball and some weird spot yesterday. All right boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network live from the built Ford tough studios each morning show with boomer esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer, and Geo heavy kept up with what's going on with the Pittsburgh steelers over the last couple of days because my timeline is still filled with old buddies from Pittsburgh who this has been their topic this week I've been holidays then. They have been talking about because of course, it is controversial and there's lots of stuff going on. All right if you just a quick synopsis if you haven't seen it. I. There was a decision made by somebody which I guess is unclear at this moment whether it was the front office or the ownership or a coach or something. But somebody made the decision in the steelers organization to put the name of a kid black young man sixteen years old shot to death was antoine. Rose Junior was his name. He was shot to death by East Pittsburgh Police. However, he was wanted in a drive-by shooting. And then he ran from the cops that was part of the story as well. And apparently Markey's pouncey didn't know that part of the story and he works with police officers allot in trying to help out with community policing and making sure that things don't get out of hand and that's spin something he has done behind the scenes for years down in Florida and also in Pittsburgh and then when he heard the other side of the story, he decided to cover up the name on the back of his helmet. Now, that's the second part of it the first part of it was Alejandro Villanueva the steelers tackle. Left tackle who is an army guy and we've known this we've talked about him. He is someone who has fought overseas. He is someone who has talked the talk walk the walk his these not just guy who Played football and you know hung around West Point. He did everything you know as all those guys do and plus you go back last year they had a disjointed. You know National Anthem Situation Chicago when they were playing the bears and he went out of the locker room and stood for the national anthem and member Ben Rothlisberger said after the game that he regretted that he did not go out right with Alejandro to stand there for the national anthem right and believe that was a couple years ago I don't think it was last year there was a year prior art to that and he during the game took. The name offer at least put something over it and put the name all win cash on their who was a fellow soldier who had perished in battle who was also an African American and he wanted to honor his name over the name that was on helmet, and now there's this back and forth within the locker room about whose name should be and how they're going to do this. So now you've got two steelers that have gone away from everybody else. That has had it on their helmet, and here we go again and this is where you know it's not just clear. These things aren't clear. You know people and this is why when you say things about a NFL locker room and everybody coming together and you wish that the world was like an NFL locker room that is that is true I mean a lot of these guys come together from different backgrounds. But also there's a lot of guys with different opinions in there and when one side of. The story or something is just sent down from above and then all the guys are doing this, and then maybe they don't have all the information not comfortable with that that put certain guys in a tough spot because it's not just about honoring and name. It's also these are political statements that are being made to that come charged with that. So I just found this to be one of the more interesting ones that have gone on in the NFL where you've got a discord now in a locker room. Team like the steelers, which is one of the most recognized names in football and had supposed to have a great year and now they've been dealing with this all week it's it's it truly is fascinating while this is going to be interesting for Mike Tomlin. Because you know. Look he's had to deal with a lot of stuff over the years you know from mercurial personalities to the anthem protests situation with. Our hundred Villanueva and by the way. You know. He's GonNa keep it honest for himself. Nobody's going to tell him what the do had to do it especially when you have the background of him and the sacrifices that he's made. But Cam Hayward had had an issue with pouncey also have an issue with Villanova and Cam Hayward's one more popular players on that team and you know I I don't know who decided to use the name I, don't know. What the story behind it all is. All I know is that from my experiences in the locker room. It's true I mean we all come together you know. It's not in the NFL certainly, not a homogeneous locker room. It's it's all sorts of socio economic backgrounds and diversity in music choices, and you name it from clothing choices to music choices A. Sexual, preference it's. Just, a hodgepodge of everything and the coach really tried very hard to keep the everybody centrally focused on what is really the most important thing for all of them collectively, Addis to win football games and to prepare football that's their jobs, and you know some coaches handled with different than others but you know Thomas will have his hands full I. Don't I. Don't know if it makes a difference that he's a black head coach as opposed to a white head coach maybe it does I don't think I think it does. I can't tell you. All I know is that every coach I've ever had black white running back coach defensive line coach head coach I mean we all came together for a common goal. Sometimes, it works sometimes, it doesn't but. I don't know what to tell you. This is what happens when politics and outside influence start permeating the locker room for any sport for that matter I'm sure there are NBA players that don't agree with everything that's going on, but you gotta go along to get along. Yeah and to me this is why you can't have someone make a single decision for. An entire team he can't do that. Now what the NBA did you know you could put this or that on the back your Jersey. If you don't want to put anything on the back of Your Jersey just your name, you could do that whatever. But to say like the entire team has the honor this guy or this 'cause I, mean, we're talking about. Fifty three guys in a practice squad all from different backgrounds, all with different ideas and all of that stuff. Generally, there isn't like one thing that people are going to agree on, and by the way the FE alley hundred billion waiver should not get a single bit of criticism because if you look at his background and the person by the way that he honored, I, mean, these guys were fighting for us in our freedoms and just because he wanted to put the name of that guy who none of us knew who died in battle, who probably wasn't talked about one time after was fighting for America and he wanted. To honor that I mean and we're going to disrespect that and Alejandra villain that to me is insane I'm sorry. Well, sometimes, you also feel like it's a setup like if you don't go along with what we say we want to do then obviously you have to be opposite that what the message we're trying to carry. So that's the other part of it that like the NBA says, you could do this on the back of your Jersey but if somebody doesn't do that on the back of their jerseys so they don't believe in what you're trying to. You know force the issue that you're trying to force I just. One action leads to another reaction, which is what's happening to the Pittsburgh steelers right now. Yeah. Right. Exactly and that's something that we've talked about a lot during these charged times. If you will emotionally charged times is that just because you say one thing it doesn't make you believe the other thing one, hundred percent I mean and that's why everybody assumed that. Oh, now Alejandro Villanueva does not want racial equality now has nothing to do with that all when cash is a black guy was a black guy who fought for us and died. In, combat there's nothing to do with racial inequality has to do with wanting to honor someone that was important to him, and he did it and honestly you know it's extremists on both sides and I. I don't know what the percentages are. Let's let's call ten percent five percent for one way five percent for the other way, and then the ninety percent of the population in the middle who once good for everybody is stuck fighting these battles and getting put into these conversations because of the constant media attention that is thrown down our throats. And just after a while it's just enough is enough already you know I have to say as a sports fan watching everything I did yesterday literally from eleven o'clock in the morning until twelve thirty last night. It was actually great watching the competition at every level in every sport from golf and Justin. Thomas doing what he did yesterday at an impossible golf course. To watching what happened is Seth Lugo and the mets battling back to. Eventually win the game to the Yankees hitting a home run barrage and setting records like ridiculous to overtime game. In the NHL, to an unbelievable comeback a second comeback by the way by the Miami Heat against the Boston Celtics to the celtics melting down in the locker room after the game I mean the sports entertainment for me yesterday was just it was amazing. It was it was A. Finish, and then we come in here this morning and we're talking about. Whatever's going on in the Pittsburgh Lock Room tied to everything else that's going on outside of those locker rooms sure and that's going to be a conversation. Now in sports because sports, it's the intersection is, is there now I, mean, the lines have been blurred in a major way and most of the time we're going to be enjoying sports. There's a lot of this that's going to continue to happen especially now until the election, these things are going to crop up and I I mean if you know Cam, Hayward wanted to put Antoine Rose Juniors name on his helmet. Okay. If all of Illinois wave wants to put all when caches name on his Helmet Okay That's that's the point we gotta get to you know and not chastising people for what they believe in honoring someone who has passed away that is important to them and. It's Pouncey has been a big supporter of the Pittsburgh police local police they're trying, as you said, trying to create the community policing and bring the communities together and all that stuff, which is good which is exactly what Commissioner O.`Neil was doing here before he ended up stepping down. And that was a big success, a successful program you and I both know that because we've seen it up of close and personal. But he also back home in Florida is very involved with the floor police down in his hometown. I mentioned that yeah. I know. So that's what he's been doing. He's been. He's been a part of that. He's been doing stuff to help and trying to show that there can be better relationships in you know some of the the neighborhoods that have had a bad history between the police and the community. So I mean you have to you have to respect. You have to respect it, but you know the thing is, is that. He is a player that actually is trying to do something. Everybody keeps saying, okay, we have all these things going on. We have all these sayings we have these boycotts got these protests. We got this we got that we need change. We gotta have all these different things happening and he is a player that his used his own platform to go and try to do these things. He's literally living what everybody's saying we should be doing so. I don't necessarily know that I can question him in regards to this right right and then he has done some good thing at the beginning of a few years back. He was defending Aaron Hernandez a little bit too much I didn't like that. But. He seemed to have matured pretty much in these last few years and done some really good things. So you have to respect it and you I mean that you're talking about bouncing what about Al Villain away his life and career and what he's don how could anybody challenge that doubt that I mean my goodness? How can they I would feel like? If you're GONNA say you can't question somebody kneeing for the national anthem. How anybody in their right mind question? Villanova wanting to stand for the national anthem and wanting to put the name of a fallen hero who he feels has been forgotten on the back of his helmet someone who died trying to defend the country and our freedoms. That's what we're going to go after. I mean, let's come. We WanNA listen but then again, everybody else has to listen to. Right so I mean. All right. So exciting. So there you go. There's our political upheaval in the NFL and we're we into week two. Very, good. All right. We'll get back to the sports and the hockey and football and the baseball and all these things that are happening right after this it is boomer and Geo on the fan CBS sports network in radio. Dot Com each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg now, the boomer and Geo here has been so much of this jet bashing that has gone on and I have been sponsor for a lot. Of It this week that it almost makes me feel like they will go out and play almost almost go out and play a lot better in this game against the forty niners and then you throw in the fact Richard Sherman injury and the George kittle injury, and then I know that the jets have their issues as well. There's not going to be any Denzel mims again no levy on bell MCI Becton's got his knee situation. So. I just I can't imagine. This is how we're GONNA. Know things are off the rails. This is how we will know. If the jets come out after all this criticism, the owner has to come out after week one and give the vote of confidence to the quarterback and the head coach, and they're down twenty one nothing in the first quarter again then we know this team is the worst team in football, and there's no turning back because there has to be some sort of pride here there has to be and you're right about it being week one and people freaking out, but if it happens again and they. Come out and Sam's doing the happy feet and he's missing guys and the offensive line can't block this pass rusher, the forty niners and Jimmy Garoppolo who has struggled mightily in recent times even though they went to the Super Bowl last year looks like he's on fire and he throws four touchdown passes. Then this team officially will be the worst team in the game that will have the number one overall pick. That's the way I feel about I feel like we will not. We will know after this. Well without if George Kill does employ a big hole in their offense, obviously because they're wide receiver core is extremely thin much like the jets by that's why they went and signed Muhammad's to knew who I don't think will play on Sunday either Richard Germans a big big part of their defense. You know and they they moved him around for the first time in a long. In the secondary last week they lost last week because Kyle. Murray was running all over the place culinary ran for ninety one yards through you through fourteen completions the de'andre. Hopkins. What they were one of the kind of sexy pics to be a vastly improved this year because everybody figured Colin Murray would take the next step in his second year. In the first week of the season. He did I guess a very good defense that was exhausted and reading the articles about that game and then just watching some of the tape of the game. There was no energy on the sideline of the forty niners and most of the players kind of blamed on the lack of fans. But then again, every other team is almost in the same situation and if they are fans there may be like six, seven, hundred, maybe maybe fifteen thousand, maybe fifteen thousand fans at some of these games that really don't make a difference so. I don't know they'll. They'll be pissed off coming in here. There's no question about it and by the way was it Jimmy Garoppolo? I didn't think it wasn't his fault. They lost last week. It was the fact that Colin Murray was running all over the place making those crazy plays that you can't design yet but Garoppolos in that world right now you know it where the forty niners. Saw, their team lose a super bowl to a superior quarterback. They had a lead. They're not confident in him that he is of that level. They feel like they've got all the pieces around him and he's just in that world where he needs to play his ass off every single week to regain the trust of the fan base. You know he sorta like in that Kirk cousins world where Exactly is not good enough and the team around him is good and everybody feels like he's the reason why they're not winning. Well, he's not Patrick. Mahomes. Let's face it nobody in but then again, he's not Calamar either he's not. Lamar Jackson. That's for sure. One of the more interesting games this week again, just like it was an interesting game. Last week is GonNa be New England Seattle coach ballot check losses Mama's nine-year-old mom passed away this week and. He actually showed his human side talking about her. which was somewhat refreshing when you think ninety eight years old and you think sharp is attack and he talked about all of his. Recollections, and memories of her and I'm sure that made him feel a lot better because I know did when my dad passed away that's how I always felt I always felt about the memories that we shared together that brought a to my face that help you get through the pain of losing someone so close and so dear to you and. You know and listening to bell kind of talk about his mom and stuff like that showed you that there is an actual human being. The. Cut off sleeves of the Hoodie. which which I which I know is. It's difficult but then again, he goes back to work and he's got Cam Newton and they're gonNA go out and see Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson on Sunday night football and it's GonNa be really interesting watching Cam and this offense now play against that defense a lot of interesting story lines going into week two of the NFL as well. Let's go to anthony was on Long Island. What's Happen Anthony was. Gone. Hey. All right. Brother. I love you guys obviously have to point. Let me get to the second one after I go to jail for a little bit short. I. Turned the key in my car open up the radio and the first thing he says, you can bet someone's things going to get hurt again. Four five the first thing he's done in like thirty seven years. and. All of a sudden when you get hurt again I yeah. Well, that's that's his reputation Anthony Right now here you got to remember if you go back to last year if you were listening before the playoffs I was so confident about him. When he came back I said he's GonNa come back. He's GonNa hit he's GonNa shut everybody up, but he's going to be great and then I saw him play a game and then they'll sit back and then he had another injury and then he didn't play in the playoffs and I said now I'm just done with him. Then he came back this year look good lost some weight did different things would stretch in. Got Hurt again so more he needs to do more than just a four for five anthony for me to believe this is going to stay healthy and contribute. Hundred percent, but you gotta give them a chance. We gave them a chance given him a chance now anthony we've given them a chance. I mean. Yeah, you are the beloit. Gary Sanchez at home run, right? Yeah. Well, yeah. That guy is a miracle. Far Beyond repair. Okay. So what else you got? Anthony. Knowing that he said. That's all anthony hat but yeah, I mean I. I don't know like I wanted to be positive about stanton I still would like to be positive about him, but it's just. How could you have any faith in the guy just by seeing him look okay. Last night I mean he's just he's a muscle pull weight and a half it. It's a joke a bunch. You GotTa admit though you wish you were built like him. Oh. Yeah. Without a doubt. Wa You. Let's. You know. Let's not lose sight of the fact that in our first ever softball game you did muscle. Well, that's what's so. You don't have any muscles right I don which is amazing. I don't know how my body was able to find pull but it did. But. Yeah, this is what makes it. So inverting I'm the guy who should be pulling muscles like the late thirties still trying to run fast out of shape doesn't exercise a lot guy that's the guy. Should we pull pulling muscles and softball games on his way down the first base after he grounds out the third for the four hundred time in a row that's the guys pull Paloma Giancarlo Stanton should be out there playing every single day looking like the Adana that he is and we shouldn't have to worry about his overall health Let's go down Houston and talk to Donnie what's going on donning? A. Yes. The absurdity of the pitch situation is ridiculous. We can't order a person that dies in battle, but we can honor a person from police. So. These slogan should be Sir. Certain black lives matter because. You're only credibility is when you get shot by a policeman if you get killed in battle defending her country. We could care less about. Well. I would say, well, let's. Say. Week careless About that. I mean this this is an internal thing between the steelers in their players. You know you try to explain what a locker rooms about and anybody who's ever been in a locker room understands. The mechanisms and relationships and how they get pushed impressed. Especially when your team's losing and you have an outside influence that's coming in and Tomlin's going to. Handle this so. I think I would I would. I would venture to say that every single player on that team. Loves and respects one hundred Villanova and understands the sacrifice that he made I. I would I would tell you that that's almost one hundred percent. I would hope so I really would I always assumed that before this situation and I really hope that day. I. Mean How could you just by the way you know he went to Mike Tomlin and say Mike Look I'm not putting this name on the back of my helmet. This is the name that I want to put on the back of my helmet Mike said. Okay. I how could you not say okay if you really think about what he wanted to do I, mean my goodness I mean got boxed into a corner. That's that's the that's the politics of all of this but come on, let's let's let's think about the facts here too. It's a soldier wanting to onerous soldier. You'RE GONNA. Tell you now I know. I'm I'm with you bro I'm just telling you this. I don't care. I mean you can't. If you're Mike Tomlin if you bill bell check if you JOE judge a soldier walks into your office says, I. Want to honor a soldier fallen soldier. You could tell them. No, I don't think that's a good time you. Know but what's interesting is that Mike Tomlin and hundred never said anything to anybody else? Yeah. Was it until I you know I'm sure a couple of players saw it during the game on on some Monday night but I'm not. You know is the media that all of a sudden was going around and asking people about that you know. So then that created. An intensity to it? Sure. Of course, as always toss fight, it is boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Body boomer and Geo. Yard as a football Friday morning, and we were just talking about a hundred villain away about the left tackle for the Pittsburgh steelers you know he played at West Point and played a dummy. And armies game this weekend would Byu. Has Been canceled because Byu has a number of players that have come down and have tested positive for cove nineteen. Now, a lot of these players according to their head coach are a symptomatic. So and you know it was interesting listening to him and reading his comments, and basically what he is saying is kind of like what everybody else should be saying out there you know this is a prudent thing to do. We're got to take the right step. We'll try to reschedule with army later in November hopefully, army and Byu will be able to play at mikey stadium. Hopefully, that will be the case but because we do have a couple a symptomatic. Players you know we have to get through it. He goes. Here's what I'm really worried about as the coach goes says I'm worried about their mental health I'm worried about their physical health you know these guys their spring ball was interrupted. They need to get back to normal. See we have to take every step. We possibly can to try to make this happen, and then you listen to some of the players talk there and some of their players are older. because. They go on missions and stuff. So a couple of the older players were basically saying, Hey, look man. It's a roller coaster every year, it's a wild ride were on and whatever we need to do to practice correctly. So we don't infect each other. You know we need to do. We need to make those sacrifices so we can play the game that we love. That's that's a practical legitimate. Looking, at it and I see what the coaches saying I appreciate what all coaches are dealing with because it is about mental health as as well as physical health. So unfortunately, the Army Byu game was postponed. So hopefully, they'll be able to replay it in November at some time but I think it was a very practical thing for Byu to do to call army and say look we got a couple of ASEM thematic guys that tested positive. We're not seeing any sort of symptoms. or any of that stuff, but we just WANNA be abundantly careful not to put anybody else in a bad situation and I appreciate that because that's the way it should be handled. Yeah and we are seeing more and more of the a symptomatic cases. The ones that aren't ending up in the hospital aren't ending up in ICU it's not as deadly as it was back in March and April, which are all very very again. Signs look at the just just please everybody out there. Just needs to look at the facts and understand you know who this is most adversely affecting, and then take a look at the facts at as to what it's doing to younger people and I understand there's relationships and people at home and you don't WanNa bring home and all that other stuff. That's why you have to be practical. That's why you have to be prudent but that doesn't mean you shut everything down and keep people from living a life making money and being able to support their families. And overreact everything that we're at. We're past all that. Sure. We, Think We're past that. No. All right. It is around here. It's everywhere. It's still here. It's still everywhere in the world. It's just we're doing a much better job of understanding of how to try to contain it. But. That doesn't mean you gotTa shut everything down you gotta let people go to work. They gotta get out. Right? We are raising basically now is what we eight months into this. Media and. I guess you WanNa talk about when we weren't six months right since we didn't since we haven't been the studios, I the six months that has has affected us but in a little bit longer affecting pretty much the economy and everybody else with shutdowns and all that other stuff. and. Then of course, the insidious deaths that take took place in all the senior homes and all the hospital, the older. Co. Morbidity patients that died and it's sad. It's really sad and it's significant. It's over two hundred thousand people died in this country alone but. you know. What we are doing by shutting everything down is creating other problems that are just as big if not bigger or going to be bigger and more longer lasting. Then this when you think about just the significant mental health impact that it has had on our entire society, let me tell you yesterday I know it's such a small thing and this is not an economic thing and it's different conversation but I was so. Happy to see that this annual golf tournament I know you're GonNa to have your golf tournament too. But this this thing went off as scheduled. Yeah because it was it was great and they did it. You know there was nothing inside everything was outside people were golfing or having a good time everything was done safely in protocols and people are having a great time and just loved it and as of like a month. Or two ago the the thing was going to be shut down. They went forward with it. I know you're going for with yours and they try to go along with hours in October I was watching US Open yesterday and what I saw was what looked to me like a charitable golf tournament with people all over the place and they can run it and they're smart and my foundation is going to be really SMART. The place where we hold the golf tournament is going to be really smart. We're all going to be careful and we're GONNA rely on people who come to this thing doing the right thing just like the people who went to the US Open we're doing the right thing yesterday they were socially distant how to be able to went to the browns game last night. Yeah and we're GONNA have more fans now starting. In the NFL we'll start seeing a few more fans starting to show up. You know I don't know if that's going to happen ever at the meadowlands we'll see. All right Jerry's here with the update what's going on? Jerry brought to you by Security Dodge Amityville shop twenty, four, seven online at security dodge dot com since you mentioned the browns game last night, six, thousand fans were there. So we can start their week to kicking off Thursday night football a game I. Think Fair to say the browns had to have going up against a rookie quarterback and one that played really well but in the end, Cleveland. Did come away with the victory Harrison Bryant motions back into the backfield offset to the right field on I out and he's going to bootleg it out near side looking. He's GonNa go long and deep Beckham's out there. Own. Jd Jim Donovan on Browns radio touchdown. That was part of thirty, five, thirty win for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield at a couple of touchdown passes. They really did a good job on the ground though Nick Chevron for honor and twenty four yards couple of touchdowns Kareem. Hunt. eighty-six yards rushing. Touchdown on the ground one receiving as well. He was Mayfield. It's a good win more importantly they get one for their new head coach Kevin's defence. Adams is when He works extremely hard. and. A, good team us now Stefanski says good. Background. I don't know what's going on they're. The bengals had thirty first downs. They ran eighty eight plays. And you ask your rookie quarterback to make sixty one decisions. To. Most by a rookie believe since Chris winky that he had sixty two or something. But the moment he wasn't a rookie for thirty forty Chris winky. Observe but he was. He was not a young rookie, but he was a rookie. Borough thirty seven of sixty, one for three sixteen, three touchdowns. No pigs did lose a fumble Cleveland one in one Cincinnati now oh, two on the Air Sunday the giants in Chicago. Last hour we heard from Saquon Barkley. TV's criticism of his inability to pass protect. Here was Jason Garrett their coordinator. He was asked about it a great respect for Tiki first of all a team mate of mine and. I've known for a long time and I really. Respect him as a person and as a player and then went on and on and on about him and then talked about Barkley getting better. You can approve and all areas, and that's something that we like so much about him his desire to come in and get better and strive to be a complete back and so there you go pretty non answer answer from Garrett who did very well doing that Dallas last twelve years judge. His offensive game plan though I mean at least they realized sure run against that steeler defense. So they threw it and he I love I love his short yardage game plan. You know slamming up there in the middle I I always say I still say this coach cower. By coach, it's fourth in like three inches and you try you handed to the fullback up the middle or the toss sweep where they're gonNA. You toss back five yards to gain three inches and I my coach crap never works. You guys spend sixteen hours, your goddamn offices doing what you need to have a play on that situation and you gotta recognize who you're planning about the whole thing and I liked what Jason Garrett did on short yardage plays a lot of play action throw the ball down the field put the. Ball and Daniel Jones's hands and let him go play because that's what the NFL is. Today that quarterbacks got to make the decisions. He's got to make the plays and you've got to have confidence in them, and certainly they seem like they have that. You know it's interesting. You bring up the play like that on the fourth and short, and you give it to the fullback Matt ruled that with Carolina this past weekend and a big fourth or one and the full-back got stuffed and you got Christian McCaffrey sitting there you know. Ju We're good. This is Matt Rule. You know the he's the up and coming college coach coming from Baylor running the spread and everything else always finding out. You could try to do that the NFL but you know how about doing that in the NFL instead it added to the full backup the mental speaking of McCaffrey you guys catch his G. Q. Photos. This is one of those things that his teammates are going to tear him apart. Guy Listened to it. Looks Great. He's an amazing shape but like. Pros are a little much and one way. It's just it's over the top sexy like over the top like it could be playgirl that he's wow he's barely in any close he's just laying each. One of the things I learned from this is going outside my comfort zone so. What happened is he got hooked up with that model of you Cope Oh and he is now gone straight like mainstream fashion and he's the guy. That's mainstream cues not mainstream jeep one, hundred percents. Anybody. I we're mainstream. Mainstream that's. That's like upper echelon. That's a leap man. That's okay. All right. Fine. If you had a body like until you be throwing it around out there I'm sure I would. I'm just telling you right now I would also catch crap for God I'm wild. Yes home. My God have you even seen him boomer before you make such a strong opinion about this? Imagine what it is his his girlfriend is having a significant influence on his life and she's making him do crap like Giselle May Tom Brady? Do? No No, no, no no no. No I have to see it. You do see it. Tom Brady didn't take pictures like this no, no, no no no. No. No. I mean how about the Cowboy Hat Yai? How did you see the one in the chair? This, that's the one. If I want to couch.

Some of them are fine. Some of them right Away G.. Cues. I don't know what you're looking at, but what I'm looking at the website, and so they have him sitting in the outdoor. Weird. One of those weird shares where up I don't know that he pulls the underwear off as well as I do. He he actually. But then underneath it goes Sports fantasy pick. Yeah. Exactly. I mean this is this is as close to porn. It is I'm telling you this like this right here the picture of him with the shirt off all. The like the BANDANNA around his neck cowboy hat cowboy hat. That's Chippendales man. That's it is great. Yes. That is chip, Adele? Yes it is. Blah without question. Christian McCaffrey who normally is under the radar kind of quiet. This is the influence of the girlfriend come on. Man Without I told you without a doubt I mean she got this in his head and he's a changed man i. tell you that Olivia culpable she's got spell over Christian McCaffrey and about the one like the sad one where he's leaning up against whatever that is like a dresser, it looks like he's in a bathrobe, the bathroom that's a bathroom sink yet bathroom sink like a toilet holder in the background and he's got his little like porcupine had on or you call that thing and he's just leaning with very upset. He's in touch with his feelings. About the one where in looking at his album collections playing pocket pool I think. The one of him in bed is a little weird hemming. Yeah. went to yeah where he's got bed and breakfast and on his raised in a weird way in a weird spot. which would you like to eat some toast and jam my crotch? See hadn't seen it. Now you see you got a million of it. I swear to God I would have every one of these photos. Blown up and I would have them in the locker. Talk. I would hang the one of him on that Hammock chair and just dangling from the ceiling. Handsome over here, I got to tell you that man. He's rocking the pack for sure Oh without a doubt board habit. It's getting out of the pool. That's pretty impressive. Go question. It. You had no balls in at a tight sprinter today we got lots coming out of the. Wow, what I MISS Yesterday oh boy lightning beat the islanders and overtime to one Anthony Sorelle with the game winning goal midway through the overtime. So that ends the I'll season they take it six games in the. Conference finals, and you've got now Tampa advancing the Dallas for the Stanley Cup finals. The Yankees hit so many home runs last night. How about the fact they had five and one inning and they beat the Blue Jays ten seven they went back to back to back Gardner, Lemay who invite, and then back to back in the same inning with Stanton and Gleyber Torres Yankees won eight straight there now twenty, nine and twenty one on the season Pretty impressive. Give you one from Stanton says we hit and we had a lot of some special. Some some fun to be a part of and Um, you know looking forward to it it's coming together at the perfect time, Yup And he's GonNa play the rest of the way straight through the playoffs had four last night. Tonight. The Yankees are in Boston Jordan Montgomery Martinez Perez the stories on the Fan. wfan DOT COM Goodwin for the Medicine Philadelphia because after jumping out to a three nothing lead the fills jumped all over Seth Lugo. took a six three lead chased him from the game. But the MED bullpen did the job the rest of the way and then the offense came to life late, Brandon. NIMMO. Dominic. Smith. Robbie. Canola bulk of that Peter Lonzo did homer along the way as well and the wind up winning ten six they get to twenty, three and twenty seven on the season. They still have a pulse still not likely. They. Make the playoffs. They have a pulse mets play the braves tonight. Stephen. Mats and Max freed are the starters white SOx beat the twins four three first. Ailton. clincher a playoffs spot. Also in that game you Josh Donaldson arguing with the umpire over balls and strikes and a check swing then hits a home run and then kicks dural over the plate Ghezzi jagged then comes back and kicks more dirt on the plate. So that was an interesting scene for shore, and then just quickly you've got the heat beat the Celtics one, zero, six, one, zero, one is they came from behind again to beat Boston Goran Dragic.

Butler fourteen points four steals so a two elite now for Miami on Boston, you've got the Lakers in the nuggets starting tonight and a couple of holes and one's hold ones holes, and one's holes always in one holes in one two of them. Yesterday, the first round of the US Open Patrick Reed who is one shot off the leader Justin Thomas he hit one, and then this fella will Zala Taurus had another one same hole I believe too and so pretty wild start to the US Open Tiger Woods plus three Phil Mickelson. Plus Three Plus One plus three, and Michael. He's nine. He had tough day. He was actually before the round I was reading he was. Trying to figure out which driver play with and you know if you show up to the US Open and you still don't know that's is going to be a real problem and the interesting thing about you know we talk about guys working out and guys getting pumped up and in the gym and everything else, and then you see, Justin Thomas he basically you know ways all of about one hundred and fifty pounds I bet you and then you got pudgy Patrick Reid. Bryson D Shambo is you know bench pressing the entire know the rack when he when he right before he starts playing but these guys you know they're help they look healthy but they're not like Jim. Rat guys you know what I mean. You're right at Matthew Wolf and Thomas Peters shop back to. All. Right. Very Good Jerry. Thank you. Talk to you next hour. It's boomer and Geo live from the built Ford tough studios jobs about a lot more than a paycheck.

Candidates for president and I approve this message paid for by buying for president each the morning show with boomer Esiason, and Greg Leonardi boomer NGO, the hockey season locally ended with the islanders last night in game six. Unfortunately it's. Fortunately it is. Jerry. It's too bad. And we wanted to see this continue we did desperately but it did not and the Tampa Bay lightning obvious who are worthy opponent and there were better they're just flat out better and if brayden point hadn't played down, just could've one brock Nelson could've scored there on the short handed opportunity. They. Could one enforced to game seven they didn't. They could one game two. After they had that miserable game on things could have been different but this was a series of what apps for the islanders out and they start up in like four more days. Soy feels that way. And then the question is will map morton beyond the islanders next year is gotta be come on. Their free agent so that'll be interesting to see what happens. Is you go out? You know there's a flat cap and there's a lot of people that need to get paid and you know you just never know what the collateral damage will bring him back to my. Office the harder that team fights everybody come on, let's go lou loves him brought him back from Toronto. What are you nuts? He's got to be on the team. The team that practices up Greenberg you're probably used by the way. The loss of Adam Pelican Casey's Zeke is certainly hurt them. There's no question about that but Varlamov play. Great. There's you know he just played out of his mind Matthew Bars L. probably learned a very valuable lesson last night that you can't do it all by yourself you can create space and you can dangle with the puck and everything else. But you know eventually you gotta get it to your teammates and it was a little frustrating watching him try to do everything last night but I will say one thing that kids tougher than I thought he was. A marked man he fought back you got hit in the I a couple of times and you know that one game he got hit with pucks and sticks and everything else and he came back and he skated great. So you know he's going to be a pain in the ASS to deal with for years and years and years for the owner so We gotta get our own guys going and hopefully law frontier. When we take him number, one will become. Our younger version of matthew bars. L.. It's amazing to me. How many people like were they cold here people ask me yesterday like so his Bouma ruined for the owners or not like how they can't understand how simple this whole thing is that you're always going to be a die hard ranger fan. But when your son in in the midst of a cup run in an affects your entire family, you want to see him do well like I don't understand how people had a real tough time trying to navigate through those two things happening. I, put my daughter for the whole thing. You know it's. Kinda. Put you in a tough spot. Impossible spot and you know and I have to deal with it and it's okay and you know the thing about it is is because as long island, you end up known a bunch of because I played golf with clutter, Buck and. A, bunch of the guys over over the sure softball with clutter buck. Yeah. Because he gets right Zeke is through. Yeah. Right. I mean those guys show up and all that other stuff. So it's not you know it's like I said, they're not the fliers. Flyers are like everybody like just everybody hates them everybody and that's just the way it is in always be that way for me. In this case you know, of course, I'm rooting for my granddaughter but my daughter put me an untenable situations, her fault and she knows it and now she could rectify the whole thing if she wants. Yeah. She could. We could use heavy heavy fisted. Winner on the Rangers now that we're ready to go ready to take the step, Matt doesn't need that you need that. Well, the criticism from you. If you put that Jersey on I mean, you'll just be all over his ass all the time. What are you talking about? What are you talking about? If he becomes a ranger, you know how much criticism he's GonNa it's one thing he's playing for a team that you don't root for right you WANNA. See Him do well if he turns the puck over in a key situation at least the game winning goal from home. Yeah I mean he's going to have to donald going to hear from the coach going to have to hear it from you and everything else it sounds like a nightmare for him. have. A couple of conversations without question. I mean. There's there's no doubt that he needs to stay right where he is. All right. Let's grab a cup of Kohl's here how Anthony and Sayerville what's going on Anthony? How's it going guys? All right. Nancy what happened? All right a boomer just I agree with you with what you said earlier this is what I'd be with because I'm a lifelong jet, Fan I'm also an Lsu. So I just see this kid last night and he's just all that hits. He took the kid is unflappable and and he when they say this kid has it he has it and that's all I wanna see from San when I look at Sam I see someone who looks like he needed to be rescued from the field or something. Online. Right now, riding a bike I, he probably have A. Commercial this weekend you know. WanNa see that you know your understand your troy two guys talking about last night. You know that this kids is serious kid you know he's not Baker Mayfield doing a million commercials and all that other stuff he wants to win football games and he said it last night after the game he's ever lost two games in a entire life until he got to the bengals but it's GonNa, take that personality that's going to have to overtake. that. Franchise and I, think we're seeing the beginnings of that and I agree that you know that that's what that's what you want Sam Darnold to look like on the field and believe it or not. I do think the bengals have better skill players than the jets do and it's about time for Sam to relax and get the poise and when you watch like Joe Borough last night and even last week against the chargers I saw. What you saw was a kid that has the intangible that you can't measure until you see it on the field and what it looks like, and that's exactly what they were talking about last that's the poise. That's the the ability to believe that you belong there and he's he already has that all ready at this age. What an evaluation from that last caller? Sam darnold looks like a guy who needs to be rescued from the field. Whistle. That's one of the things I wish. I thought of that is. Last week he was. There are other games where he's looked really good. You just need to get that more consistency out of him and let's face it this team regardless of whether we. Like it or not. The, the new general manager is going to a rebuild right now, it is a rebuild. This is where the forty niners were two and a half years ago. Unfortunately, this is where the jets were two and a half years ago to. Rebuilt doing another in another but if you keep changing. It just keeps happening over and over and over again and the new GM comes in and he looks at what the previous GM did and I don't care if it's mccaddon for. Or for Tanenbaum or tantamount for whoever it just basically, the next guy wants to put his name on the team and wants to fix the problems that he believes were created by his predecessor. That's just the way it is. Eddie in Bay. Ridge. Hey guys. This is a long long time jet Fan Sixty, seven years old last time. I saw that just when a super bowl with a sophomore. Okay Year in and year out the same crap year in year out this case. He's a disaster waiting to happen I don't want nothing hired him. The guy doesn't have a winning record now or never okay. GUYS GOTTA go. It's ridiculous one game into the season seventeen games into his tenure. He's gotta go. Okay. Yeah. That's that's that's the job Bingo. Yup Pied Piper resume that goes on. You know that's the that is a follower of Saint Beningo who was leading his troops into battle. There's no doubt about it but I don't want to hear about it. But I can't I will not ever criticize a jet Fan for being frustrated. I can't do it especially ones that weren't alive now this guy was so with show for their only super bowl I just so just let look at look at my career man three years three coaches a general manager who died of cancer in the middle of all of it. An owner that is getting older and and you decide to bring in an old friend try to fix things and if you keep going down the road trying to fix things trying to fix things trying to fix things, you keep breaking them and there is no sort of continuity at all and. I just like I'd like to think that the giants found their head coach and I, hope that they keep it together and I hope in some way shape or forms and maybe Jason Garrett probably not GonNa like this I hope he doesn't get into the head job or an opportunity to know the job I wanted to just be the offense coordinator like Josh mcdaniels had been for Tom Brady for twenty years. Well, he did he could take a break for three or four years the Broncos, but he ended up coming back. You know you want stability man every team needs stability. You can't always turn around and just think after one year you know it's time to start over again I mean Joe Douglas is trying to fix what he believes were the problems that the jets had prior to his arrival. That's why I've got a six year deal. That remember that like you know I did make all the wrong moves I. Don't think he made all the wrong moves. He made some wrong moves across he did he has a bad drafts horrible traffic, right but but so the not just fans. So the new GM wetherby Joe Douglas or anybody else when they come in, they survey the landscape and you don't hire a general manager to come in and sit pat. He's got a big decisions. But. We've set it to the jet Fan needs to see something that they feel like the building in the right direction. Now, last year at the end of the year, they had one six at eight that bengals loss was a bad one. But they looked okay and you felt like there was some momentum but the problem was the off season in the way it went and then week one in the way that they went that momentum came crashing to the ground. So they just need they need to have a reason to believe it Sam Darnold? And Adam Gates is the guy and haven't had enough of that. All right. So so Adam gays gets you know Levian Bell we all know he didn't want them. I don't know that personal. I just everything I read it. Just it just not working. It's just whatever it is. It's just not working. They also bring in CJ Moseley who's going to be great. It's going to be lewd depends he ops out on, you have to get hurt last year and then Jamal Adams manufacturers. This whole thing in his brain that somehow someway the jets are not treating him fairly and they're being mean to him and he wants to get out of here and he'll go somewhere else without being a pain in the neck about wanting a new contract. Yeah I, mean I. Is. That is that. Joe Douglas's Fault Nano. None of that is no it's really about it's about. Jobs. About a lot more than a paycheck, it's about your dignity under my plan fifty percent of emergency small business relief would be reserved for the smallest businesses to recover from the economic mess were in and to rebuild the economic future. Our country deserves building wealth for families of color building a future worthy of their courage and ambition. Just imagine we could truly unleashed her full potential jo by candidates for president and I approve this message paid for by buying for president minutes about Adam Gates. That's what this is about. Your should be about for jet fans is quarterback. So it's about. Making the decision to bring Adam Gates that's the one thing that Joe said that I will write with. Then you know I can understand why you don't have confidence in the owner making decision that he made especially bringing a coach who only had one playoff year in his previous spot. Mind you his quarterback was a rookie the first year and then was hurt every year after that significantly hurt where he missed significant amount of time. And then he went to a new team that was a much better team and he took that team to the AFC. Championship Game against the chiefs after he took over for an ineffective Marcus, Mariota. And it's a bounceback opportunity for Ryan Tannehill and everybody said, well, you know he had him as well. No, we didn't. He was hurt all the time. Yeah I just the jet Fan needs to see more from those guys. That's what's going to come down to I can't disagree. You can't disagree that both of them in these jobs so far you haven't seen enough and you get a lot of explanations out there. There's plenty of them but for a guy that they didn't want in the first place, he's never gonNA get the benefit of the doubt. So you can give all those reason you're right and the fact that you have a third string quarterback, the way the season went last year and this and that what happened off season fine. But you just show some fight. The crazy I press conference and you know and then it's like he's sitting on the bench and he's only word about the offense and he's not involved with the defense and meanwhile I'm telling you right now because of the lack of fans and all that other stuff to me the head coach. Assistant coaches, special teams, coaches, weightlifting coach whoever somebody has got to generate energy on the football team. Well. Yeah. They need right Jamal Adams did do that as much of a jerk as he was on his way out he did generate energy for that team. He did each the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti boomer Geo this week flu by I don't care what anybody says I'm telling you there some weeks that feel. Long some weeks feel short this fricken week flu by like crazy. I. Think it's because we were watching so much stuff and we were doing so much stop I think and what face are you making over there? Feel like it was a long way because I just had a conversation with Eddie and he asks me a question and he goes Oh, by the way I just got. Contacted by Toronto Radio Station and WanNa talk to you on Monday. Night football and hockey and everything and. I said I did the Browns Bengals pre-game show I did. A San Francisco hit yesterday I did the Chicago hit on Monday the W. e. hit on Monday sporting news interview for CBS Yeah I mean I my sinuses a quick week in the By now I don't think. So and now when you're busy, it goes faster double overtime hockey games. I had basketball games were guys are fighting in a lock room at a football game last night et twelve hours at CBS NFL today last Sunday. About ten to kill his during the week. My Bill. Ones. That's it only ten. Yeah but I mean I'm shot. You wouldn't want it any other way stop. Give me a break. You get you get you get. Paid for this I am but not all of it maybe a for Toronto then yeah. Well, you know I tell I totally I said look I got people reaching out the Natalie to Rosner to Chernoff to Eddie. To Al Dukes. Right Al Yeah. It's the same Toronto people keep reaching out to me as well. All right, and you just ignoring them. Do is ice them the boomer and I go right back. I said I sent this to boomer if he's interested, he'll be in touch. Now Al handles it pretty good. Puts it all on. What a Voice Tan LG call that a Says No he says no Rosner says add this to the twenty twenty, one calendar I mean. Yeah. So it's it's pretty hectic, but it's good. I'm not like. Guess, it does sound like complaining. Slap myself are now. Just. Punch myself in the face WHO'S THE TORONTO. Person Reaches out to you. I don't know I just see that the Toronto they're so polite because they're Canadian. A GAL named Danielle at the fan in Toronto is at the same resent not ringing about I get the fan in Toronto, but I don't know who sends it. So maybe it's two different people work at different angles but Buddy Eddie angles may hey, you could talk. Hockey. and talking to Canada to seeing right at the whole thing, get to Canadian thing I. Get it. And let me tell you boomer takes all these interviews very seriously. If I were you I probably wouldn't take them as seriously as you would. But you take these things very seriously. I've even seen you listen back to them. After it's over to see how it sounded the CV do better on other ones like for me. If you have always doing as many interview requests as you I mean I'd be like eating a bag of chips in the background be walking around yeah. Yeah whatever. Mitch Trubisky. Who can't. Aren't the amazing thing for me is though is all say the same things here that I say somewhere else. When for some reason when I say them somewhere else it makes headlines here just doesn't make headlines just kind of goes away. Like I, I'll come on Monday morning say saquon Barkley can't pass block he's awful pass blocking and you know and I'll be talking about this year and the next thing you know tiki barber not saying that he's stealing my stuff because he's not he's got his own personal view of things and I know because he is was Criticizing Eli Manning and he also now is criticizing and rightfully. So by the way saquon Barkley he's going to garner more attention you dome saying we'll also he's a giant running back criticizing. Came on today said that you know Joe Borough is a loser and these Owen Tube because he's is a big fat loser or something up Forma Bengals quarterback ripping current Bengals quarterback I mean that that would be the way that that happens and I think that in some of these different markets that you go on, it's a big deal when you're on there saying something about their team whereas people here don't care what you really have to say about their teams. Honestly. Right. But I just try to be I just tried to be as consistent. Here's I would be somewhere else. Chore Of, Course. Some other people have like. I don't know people who run the that social media world do a better job of getting that message out. Doing that. Going to go down, that road. When you say stuff here that the people work at Wfan in digital media, people don't get out the stuff God. I. Don't know what they're doing i. have no idea I. don't see anybody on hearing and I don't want to get another phone call from somebody saying we need to have a zoom called to discuss all this crap I don't really care. I I had to zoom call meeting yesterday about the social media that the whole company was on. Yeah. All, over it's going go tremendously. Did you did you got some good stuff out of that or no? I personally? I didn't. But okay. But. What? I think I think as we get into it, this is going to be like a monthly meeting that I will. Real at one yesterday, I think was more of an introduction which I am happy that I'm at that level or better already with it. So but as we move along in the process I'm sure we'll. We'll be some things that'll fit park for me a monthly social media ending. and. I'm going to be a guest in one of those meetings coming. Really. Like in what way? Here's how he runs the boomer and Geo twitter and he's got his own twitter. By five team parlay. Now he's gone and everything ask. Right. Here's our biggest horror on social media Al Dukes. This is how you promote yourself al please you've got the floor. All right. Interesting. We do have a zoom meeting today by the way got Chernoff one on. Summer Fridays enjoy. Forget that I. got a CBS NFL Today meeting. So forget though you're out maybe it'll get canceled. Look. He he calls him bothers me all the time anyway. So it doesn't matter. Yeah. I feel bad is yesterday I was out and then Jerry was out. So then rescheduled it for today and I said yeah, it's fine I do today so. He's scheduled for a Friday when I have my nfl stuff. You can make it work I can make it work. Hard, for my my my counter during the football season, he knows that it's busy and it's congested and he's got a he's got three can make time for all these radio stations you can time for our reason I make time for the radio stations because he's asking me the do them was if you can go on Chicago and talk to the score, you can be on the fan in Toronto. Game in Atlanta the beast in Texas wherever you. Can make room for Mark Chernoff. Okay. Came in San Francisco. Jerry Rice said what he said about the forty niners. Right Ninety five, seven game, and so if I were the jets, I'd play a lot of music because the forty nine or seem like the dance on the sideline. No. Yeah. That's Jerry Rice yes. Jerry Rice. Somebody. Definitely gotten his ear and told him. He had to criticize the team because last year probably was kissing the entire year because they were really really good. So this year his opportunity and he rip them and he'd probably said to like the coach and wrote to Kyle Shanahan he listen I just had to do this because I need to keep this paid gig. So don't worry it's still got your back. Well, I. Know One thing they're not going to be facing Murray running all over the place. No, they will not see that this week they'll see. Sam does move around a lot but they'll see a more stationary guy. As opposed to a guy runs like a four or five forty. So what other Games do you WANNA pick today other than the jets and giants I think we should definitely do about. Rams in eagles I like that one because that to me is a close a tough one. It's only a point and a half could be good teams I do like that one and then the Patriots think we've got picked that one. Yeah you okay. With those do that's fine and there's another we gotta pick another one in chargers. Pick that one. Okay that's fine. It's a big spread, but we could pick it all I. Mean Big Spreads Make It interesting, right? Yeah. No I know it does it does. Yeah. I just don't want to. The chiefs you know. See the problem with the chargers is that. You know again it's. They have tyrod Taylor's quarterback. So he he's fine. He's a professional player. Three Games, I can handle it. You Know Sixteen Games it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a rough season. If that's going to be the case, their defense is pretty damn good And they do have some really good top end skill players it just you know again, it's like it's like having that top winger, but you don't have anybody to play with them because you can't get them the puck you know it's like. That's where the charges are right now I would think that tyrod Taylor played better than he did last week against. Cincinnati. But I don't know if anybody can stop Patrick mahomes really. Honestly let's go to Mike in Menaul Pinkus atom on hold. So I felt bad for like three hours last time he called I don't WanNa do that to against Mike Good morning what's happening buddy? Are you?

Could truly unleash their full potential I'm Biden candidates for president and I approve this message paid for by buying for president. Morning Show with boomer Esiason and Greg. A boomer and Geo Jerry, recco back with us and he's got another update with a lot of sports news. What's happening Cherry Jews report brought to you by Warner Brothers waste systems creating cleaner and Greener Long Island to learn more visit winters. B. R.. O. S. DOT COM. The end of the road has found the islanders. Art. Scene. That is Mike Emmerick NBC's network. No not, Chris King, DOC Emrick to one the final score in overtime Anthony Sarah the game winner there as the lightning take the series in six Berry Trots, proud of how the team performed and what they dealt with is the biggest thing is how much adversity we had to go through the number of series. Different. People getting hurt the the strange events losing in double overtime losing late and Games winning late in Games having a grind through quite the stretch for this team devante scored the aisles lone goal Semyon Varlamov in the loss forty six saves Scott. Mayfield says the aisles are really raising expectations and that's a good thing. The bars always been set high i. think this shows maybe other people. How high we think it is. Up and downs there's been some tough times but you know with. The staff we have here the ownership we have here it's I think turned the corner. Now it's time for a Stanley Cup Championship how that? How about somebody saying he said? Consider where they've been, they've got a new building coming up in another year and a half I guess they're gonNA to play next year at the Nassau Coliseum looks like which is good for them and I think Madden. Brennan Immune GonNa make a nice combination on the fourth line for the Rangers. So that's the hockey story The baseball story were a lot of home runs at Yankee Stadium matter of fact, with the score tied to two in the Fourth Brett Gardner Dj Lemay Human Luke foyt went back to back to back and a belly to belly to belly, and then one better later it started again near Stanton Manny swings and hits a long drive to right center at his high but as far. As, gone the ball went the grandstand and up into the bleaches a stand Tony Ian Homerun. Giancarlo nosy wos follow. Yes. The home run part of his four day there was Labor Taurus the three to. Swung on and in the editing left center. That far. Is Gone. It's gone. He. Home is off the back commercial boards in the business bullpen had to go four, twenty five. All like a good Labor tauruses their act back in a belly to belly ten seven Yankees wanted beating the Blue Jays, John Sterling the call of the fan the Yankees at five home runs in that inning taught a major league record. They had six on the night nineteen for the series they wound up sweeping the series absolutely ridiculous. What they did here's Aaron Boone we mentioned Stanton with the four hits the home run any surprise that he has found his way no. I'M NOT GONNA put anything past Giancarlo and the one thing is for a couple of weeks. He's he's been working on now he's on the field. Boone asked about how they're scoring. I feel like we have to since like last year but like such thing as too many home runs you set a record for most of three game series three days. Not. Eight straight wins now for Boone's glove, obviously from a health standpoint getting a lot more whole and I feel like the guys. Are. Playing with a lot of continents. All of that to say they're playing with a lot of confidence. I didn't somebody call him last week and say they want a boon fired on probably. Of course. Again, you know it's an overreaction like so they would they lose like five out of eighteen. There were five at fifteen over twenty. Okay and now, and now the eight zero yeah. And they went from five hundred team to eight games over in a blink. Yup. This all because luke void called everybody out and said, you know nobody's afraid of US anymore well, be afraid of them. Now because they're hitting, it will Masahiro Tanaka by the way shouldn't lose sight of what he did seven innings for the win Yankees in. Boston Tonight George Montgomery the start on the Fan Wfan, dot com of not played much sound from the mets. They still do have a pulse less two wins pretty good yesterday they trailed six three came back and won. On the air, a deep right field forget that that has long gone. Wabi canot adds a two run homer and the mets scored four runs in the ninth inning Kono's eighth home run of the year, and it's ten to sixty or Mary Cohen that was a great trade by Brody Bandwagon and by the way. Outstanding. The mets now Jeremy only pinch hit last night. The mets have five guys in their line up including your may last night you're May. That are over three hundred batting average. Well, they lead the majors in average. It's unbelievable and they've got possible cy young award winner and a possible MVP candidate well, the twenty, twenty seven. Something possibly no but I will say this conforto how to make that catch in right field last night in the first inning. Game changes he had his eyes closed Yup. Here's a Brandon Nimmo not forget about him game-tying two run triple in the sixth go ahead home run in the ninth never die you know I mean. Talking to you guys. Know after they came back into the League and. You said well. We can only control we can control on US keep fighting well. That's pretty funny. Set lugos. Awful. He gave up a bunch of home runs. He didn't last long. Happy. The offense bail the mental age. You know it's really exciting. The way they came back when I got pitched after me I. Mean, that's that's eighteen women. That's that's big time, but he's your big problem. Here's a big problem now now they. Have ten games left. Yeah. Six are against you know Atlanta and Tampa Bay. We'll go beat them. You want to be a playoff team. Go in you gotta you're going to have to win eight of the ten. So figure it out they're not gonNA win eidos could. Figure it out said. No you're right I think they're going to do that. Stop Steven Steven, tonight, how mel what's the over under tonight two innings going? To. Teen runs. Know you never know just when you thought the mets had a chance Stephen Matt's comes back to vomit all over himself. I mean think about it this guy he is had like the worst season of his life and income and bag if he came back at pitch, well, tonight, I would be shocked and pitch it makes no sense free. It is having the CY young type of year matches been awful. Watched them win this game. Look what they did last night. You're right. Say Start out three three nothing and then they're down four three and then they come all the way back and they ended up hitting more. Than the phillies though that's exactly right. You know that's why they play the Games boomer. You never know it's baseball John Let's see. God's exactly where Susan. Jerry and everybody else. Exactly, Justin Wilson by the way got the win last night in Relief Browns, bengals on Thursday night football. The five touchdown browns. Baby evaded wait, that Cleveland, they've been talking about Mayfield and oath outback junior will they connect right there for forty two in the score? It's Dan Miller Westwood one thirty, five, thirty Brown's wind up beating Cincinnati. I mentioned hour warm-up show between five and six every morning they rated one by the way apparently. So Yeah Mike Brown had his consecutive game streak of being in person at eight hundred, twenty, four snap because of coronavirus. Yeah. This first regular season game he's Mrs Nineteen Sixty eight YEP. That's A. Lot of bad football. Well, he's also seen a lot of good football. But still I know you guys. I. Know It's a laughing stock and everything else but you know you went to the Super Bowl. A franchise that you know for the most part of has always had. Somebody back their quarterback has played over one hundred games. I, look the Bengals as a laughingstock. Likes to make fun of them. I mean they're not great franchise you tell me. This saying that they are but not from me. I had you in Carson Palmer sitting at Studio and trash that Franchisee you guys with two of the greatest players ever put on the uniform you guys pay on. In. Hey. Don't have a ring of honor their cheap. That's a different story that that part of me that's that's marketing and stuff like that. They still though I mean they're not a great franchisee. In. The Laws Joe. Borough of the not a great franchise thirty, seventy, six, megabyte, grave franchise you watch three, hundred, sixteen yards, three touchdowns no picks lost a fumble. How do you think you did on the night? You know I'm not sure might ask almost. We lost that's the only thing that matters and you know he's got to find a way to win games says first time in his athletic career he's lost two games in a row. I. Believe is what he said how about how about this? How about this happens for them but say, they end up with the worst record in football and they get the number one overall pick how valuable is that number one overall pick going into next year. Huge. Because Trevor Lawrence and they'd have to traded. Insane you'd have them. Tell you build your team. So now they have their quarterback, they have some pretty good young players already have a group of playmakers around him. There's no question about it won't have the worst record in football that's going to be the jets. I think that the Bengals at least win I think they could bengals can win five games I really do think I mean they played well in the first week should've won a game and their defense is just so porous man. So yes, I think that if you look at both units though the bengals offense is so much better than the jets offense and both defenses are horrible. So I still think it'll end up being. Jacksonville in two. Weeks. Man They got a Philadelphia Baltimore Indianapolis play Cleveland Tennessee Ain't easy. I got the giants think about the weapons that burrow has compared to what the jets. Yes, just think about, yes, I ask. John if the third wide receiver John Ross. Came over to the jets. He would be the most talented player that they've seen in three years on offense right? I mean that's how bad it is over there. All right. That's good. That rescue me face. Rescue me twice if you need to get out of here. Yeah, it's it's true I. Just hope that that offensive line keep them somewhat sane. That's the only thing you get home for glass half full for the jets Adam gays they played the niners another good defense like the bills were but different, this is more of his own team. So I think we'll be able to at least do some things to possibly make it where it's like a breather played for him and get him some completion saving get them in a rhythm. Really urging. Breather during the game giants in Chicago against the bears on Sunday the heat beat the Celtics. One. Oh, six, one Oh, one Goran Dragic twenty-five Bam at a twenty one and ten to lead now for. MIAMI. In the Eastern Conference finals, they have come back on the Celtics two times in a row tonight you got game on. Conference finals between the Lakers and the nuggets and US Open with the second round underway Justin Thomas minus five yesterday shuts sixty five, and there are a couple of holes in one as well as we have discussed, Patrick Reed who was a shot behind had one of the to Matthew Wolf Thomas Peters a shot back with them as well as second round play as soon has begun. In BC back on the US Open if it's if it can't CBS it's gotTa. Be. NBC Now agreed. Dan Hicks is a really good job and it just sounds sounds right it just you know they're not rushing as much as they used to, but they still go to Roger Lot they go to. A Matter, why let me just update you Thomas Peters I believe Birdie two of the first few holes. So He's jobs over Justin Thomas. So that means that this this golf courses still playing relatively easy. It's interesting 'cause I heard you ask the Prestige yesterday quickly g before we bore you to death I want you thought the winning score would be and I was with you I was stunned when I saw the scores yesterday to see you know peters now minus six already we'll sing be interesting weekend each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg boomer and Geo Garda's football Friday big sports weekend a lot of things going on and it's easy. Sometimes just miss certain things that happen every year and to all of our Jewish listeners and friends out there. We want to wish you a very happy New Year Rosh Hashanah starts tonight. Attorney in the show for thank you Eddie appreciate shoot. And he's actually playing this. With his mouth. So. We have to give him a second. So respected. It's a hidden talent of his. Yes. SARS.

Is Dove going in there by the way speaking of Russia I haven't seen news going in and coming well was very rare early. It was not until about mid July and then it. Happens. Twice a week now and we trade spots. Okay. are very good. I gotta send him an email that because the phone he's not so great with the phone and say say there's certain dove is a guy didn't think I'd ever Miss. But then when I hadn't seen him for six months, I miss seeing dove having a conversation with Dove Kramer? Well. cinematheque since happy New Year. That's what I'm going to do a mass. You'RE GONNA ball, send him in a long email and then checking on family and everything else. All right boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports. Now, let's go to Chris in Staten Island. It's happened. Chris Tell. Me You got two questions for K.. One. Boom I got a question fear about You know you guys go back and forth but ever look at Phil and just like this guy's got way too much both tax going on. And just you know one. Faces a little tight. Yeah. There's no question about. Two and thing too is. Aj Green He wasn't elite received, but he did have problems getting hurt a lot. I think paramount. One point to a Julio. Jones last night there was you know he had you know you drop all that. You know a few years ago easily catchable balls for you know Aj Yup. You see him just the climbing going downhill and you know it's time for like a boy to take over in you know elite receiver and I would say I would say going downhill is probably a little bit too too aggressive. I. Would say that definitely his skills are not what they once were at really at the top of his game when he and Andy Dalton we're playing together. And they were rolling. He was one of the best if not the best wide receiver in the NFL there for a couple years but there's no question. The injuries have really slowed them down. He broke his foot at at a practice at Dayton university last year and he just has not been the same and there's right. There are a couple balls that were thrown last night that normally he makes catches on. You ever think about. Using toxin any point. No Yeah. Should I neither? No, no no. No. I just I'm just asking you not not at all because my wife has said that you know at some point says to me some point later in a number of years I'm getting talks and I'm like. I don't know. I just feel like I'm worried about that whole thing I. Don't want WanNa, face the change and look like one of these fake people and then like she can't smile in you know she just as a permit perma smile face I, it fills us in both toxin. He does have a very stiff face got stiff every. Like one big stiff guy, I know. All right same from the head to toe. He's about a stiff as they get a guy from Kentucky, is not getting Bo talks not at all you know you're a long time. He's been over there. Net Franklin Lakes area you've got that big castle and everything he lives in. Sure. So I I don't know you never know what could be impacting him and who's making you know look what happened to Christian McCaffrey. Right. You know fill could be like one of those guys now because he's been around here for so long. So ridiculous it was one that I missed earlier where he was sitting on the bathtub and he had his white socks pulled up in an open shirt and it was that could have been the most ridiculous nothing can top that cowboy hat with that thing tied around his neck i. mean that is just it's ridiculous chippendales. Yeah. He looks like a guy that would show up at a Bachelorette party and would grind on a bright to be. That's what he looks like it's just it's hilarious. That you when you guys were living over there in A. Story you and Ernie and no, it was not miao whoever it was. Me Be Sal and Brian Monzo guys everything about becoming chippendales. No the miserable looking people still are we never get across the street to the Deli? Did I yeah for forty dollars and it was at that time there was a lot of money. So yeah, of course but that was also that's a little bit different. Because nobody that was a joke like look at the Chubby guy run naked across the street. As opposed to like being a sex symbol in some way. That's GonNa get somebody excited. I've never never been a number. Chubby. Guys running across the street around here naked. Let's go to Eddie and Rockland. County Eddie. What's happening? The captain boomer. What's Oh? Yeah. Hey Right, a couple of questions I. I've got a question for the captain captain you're on you're on the boat you got boomer, Jerry AL and Eddie. Two hours for rescue you gotTa throw somebody off every twenty minutes who's going first captain. Wow I mean that's just a horrible thing to do how about. If. We through the captain overboard. Yeah. Listen I. I'll do it this way and respectfully I think the Jerry could swim the longest. That's what I think. So I would say the put the life jacket on Jerry throw him overboard I. Think he could survive the longest. And then after that, I, think Eddie I'd have to keep Eddie on the boat as long as possible because I feel like Eddie is not a flotation type of guy. He's like me probably where you get in the water and you sink like a rock. So, Jerry would probably have to go off I but not because I don't want him there. I'M NOT GONNA pick who I liked the most of the crew I'm not going to do that, but I would keep I keep boomer on a boat for as long as possible to because I need his like quarterback instructions on how to handle things. So Go Jerry, then we go out because those guys are so close they hold hands in the water and then I'd have boomer hang for a while and then boomer eventually have to go then I would eventually have to go and then Eddie would be the last one saved by the helicopter because he couldn't swim like us. My pump is not a waterproof, right? So he would have to Eddie would have to be on the boat. Biggest as I'd be like, okay, you're going to run out of medicine MAS would just get rid of your right now. That's A. Sit here and watch you suffer without your medicine. Exactly. Yeah. That's the way I would. Do It really bad ever happens I'm dead in three days. Right and the thing about it is if now sudden, we start eating things and I would I don't know I think. There's not much meat there on. Al. So there's really nothing chew on that. We're not. We would die before we start eating each other. Let's get not on all of you. I am not no way no way I'm not in any you guys man I'm sorry as tragic as that would be, I could not eat the corpse of a friend of mine in order to stay alive in that spot I couldn't do it. Could you cut your arm off if you had to Yeah I probably could if I had the proper tools, I could probably do you know why would I need to do that? Too. In fact there's A some sort of avalanche or something, and they gotta cut themselves. Sure I mean that's pretty. That takes a lot but gee, would you do it to save your daughter's life? Yeah Yeah of course. You would do anything like that. Okay. Yeah. For that I do cannibals eat me I would. But I mean. The first test really for you would be like if you're out, you're away from home and you had Sabrina and you had you were just. Walking with her somewhere or or she wasn't feeling well, and all of a sudden she got really stuffed up and you'd have to suck the buggers out of her nose. So she could breathe you would do that. Yeah. Well, she's at what happens in our she she blows her own her own burgers. Do you have a friend that we had this conversation? Many Times. No, no no. Not The booker thing actually got. Lost at sea. For a number of days because his fishing guide screwed up and they had no communication remember this story we were on the boat and the guy was telling us he's gonNA write a book about it. Yes. That was the most F- up story and they were. At one point got capsized. And were floating in the water and they were like it was for a number of days. He thought that he was dead and then they got rescued by helicopter he he got rescued and everything worked out. Okay and I told him I said you should have written a book about it actually should be a movie maybe they did new movie I have no no. No He's going to write a book and then he might have the. Movie but I mean, that's the scariest thing in the world he was like somewhere in the Bahamas or something right and the and the boat like crapped out, and then they were lost in the middle of the ocean. He had no communication at all, and then a storm came through in sent the boat over anywhere in the water like a day with the life jacket that that was the guy that we took us out in his boat. Manhattan right right East River down the and we haven gourmet sandwiches on million dollar boat I was thinking is a lot different experience and he had a little fishing pole. One hundred miles an hour down the east. River I can tell you that. It was Speaking of like you know books and writing and everything else like this I saw yesterday on on. On Social Media that the credit card stories coming out and that they put the the teaser out there they put the trailer out there the trailer trailer and I noticed that is not. Our Yet Eddie and that trail. Jerry lot well, there was more there was more Eddie. Than, Jerry Eddie had the key word like boom boom. Oh. Yeah. I was channeling bt. POOP Abon. Yeah. Yeah. So. Yeah Al. upset about that, but I would be funny if you didn't even make the actual final cut right, I would actually pay a lot of money for that to happen. I mean Al knows Craig better than anybody yes he does. Known. Longest she'd get confirmation that I did make it into the document. Okay. Not The preview. Did you ask? A couple of others that didn't make it in either Governor Christie is in it but didn't make the okay. It Rosenberg also didn't make the trailer Oh. Wow, and he's actually in the thing. Well. What about Chernoff to get this guy to be right tackle if he's not in the trailer either Interview Yeah I would think you would be interviewed. Yeah I mean come on. Dude. Often trailer the architect was interviewed. I don't know. I mean the architect, the architect here again but the architect when we were when that was being done. Out Sort of Independent. Yeah. But I kind of think that Iran reach out to anybody that had anything to do with boomer and carton at the time but he was no heat Eddie. If you remember the time when he was still around that, it was after I don't know but I'm saying win the documentary while when the documentary was made when they were reaching out to people, he might have been out of pocket and. Camera Shy He had to be there he had to be in there had I. Don't know how he knows Craig longer than you do. Right? He does. Yeah. Yeah. So he had to be in it. Again. I don't know this for sure I and I'm assuming we'll end up having Craig on to talk about this. because. I think the thing is dropping October seventh. I tried vitamin the warm up show. He said I'll pass. Well. You told me got an eighteen shared. Oh. Yeah. I tried Selah body take the. Debate hassle he wants to come on here is you want to go on Michael K. He's going on with those two guys in Houston. Twitter bikes twitter feed, right? Yeah. Bob Looking forward to it but I would think that the people that did the documentary those the Nice but they were very nice and they did a good job at look good. I would think that they would reach out to everybody that was a part of boomer and carton and everybody that was a part of Craig's life personally right? Just text the architects stop he'll Ansi hoping he will maybe he's not listening. was. He was so much easier to get a hold of when he wasn't working for us again, you'll like this guy he would. He would call me like check in what was going on when he wasn't working for us. He was on that hiatus man he was out looking for stuff to do swamped. He's running fifty radio stations. He's got body calling them all the time. It's great to have him back, but it's also like a different world. Now it's like it's tough you. Nettie Eddie will and so Jerry I, mean you know you walk over by sales which used to be hustling and bustling and people all over the place and bells ringing and everything else I mean is a ghost town ghost town yeah and no reason to come back those guys there's no reason to what's the reason for the sales people ever come back I mean what's not to come back How long time you got I, know we gotta take a break and over here to Tennessee things they could you sit there? No, I mean New York City being the stone disaster would be the number one, and then also you could do all your work from home and you people sales people who would sit in the office. The people that would be in the office the most probably the worst sales people because you've got to be out and you gotta be meeting with people anyway right? You know what I'm saying yeah. I hear Hey, real quickly hold on John and Rockland what's happening quick John. Johnny Quick Bill Story. I met him a last year. Sometime we're at the winemaking place and he's able to couple of buddies have a good time. Tonight and then and he's got a couple of younger kids who are working there like Phil. We get some pictures you know and he's you know he's been great. He's take the pictures that get. Silje back eight Bouma when you're done, can I get a picture? Heating shout back. He's like F you. I'm sure like I told many many stories, people mistake me for him in the airport and I just tell those families ago screw I don't sign. Autographs for a little kids. That's great. Ruining his reputation one day at a time each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Naughty boomer and Geo talked a lot about the jets matchup up with the forty niners not so much about the giants and bears because we talked a ton about the giants Monday night football, and then after that. But I actually I really liked the giants in this game and we'll have our picks coming up right before the end of the show I. Don't particularly think that the bears are very good and I don't think. Mitch Trubisky. Even though he had a nice win, he needed it and we've talked about how important it was all the pressure that was on him. But that was alliance game to win, and if the Andrea Swift caught that ball Mitch trubisky would have been in the crosshairs again, just the way it is a winning cures all we know this it's been redundant for many many times. But I the way that the. Giants played on Monday night and knowing what I know about the Chicago bears being an average football team I. really do believe that they can go in there and they can win. Now it's a five and a half points spread. I'll probably end up picking giants to cover but I really do think that this team from what I saw defensively is going to be an issue, but they're not playing a great offense. You know they're not playing in the got some wide receivers I, get it now and Robinson can be very dangerous but they're not playing some kick ass offense in this game, which evens the playing field a little bit. You eliminate turnovers from Daniel Jones and I don't know the. Giants could be the better team in this football game I. don't think that's crazy to say I know you're you are a little higher on the bears and I am but this would be a great early season win in his health schedule for the giants. If they can get this one, it would make things not look as ugly over the next couple of weeks. Yeah. Early in Chicago fans, none of that stuff I mean is like scrimmage it's like a practice. So you know again whatever advantage the bears would have had on defense because the noise in soldier field is now nullified. Yes I agree that you know listen the giants play like they did against Pittsburgh steelers still win the game because. Mitch Trubisky's Ben. Rothlisberger Ben. Rothlisberger. And once he finally got into the game especially the two minute drill at the end of the first half. The game changed and he basically took it over and while the bears defense is a good defense and they'll put pressure on Daniel Jones. They're not nearly as good as the Pittsburgh steelers are they don't have the number of playmakers that the steelers have. So I could see why you would think that they would keep this game. Somewhat close in the fourth quarter and I think they should most likely cover the number yet I don't WanNa give up my Piccolo but later on but I you know I just I was very impressed with the way that they know Jones played and let's see if you can do it again. You know on the road against a reasonably good defense and the problem bears is they play in very very difficult division. You know that nine of that and they should've lost on Sunday and they caught a break and last year they never caught a break and they finally caught a break this year and that's the difference of being one hour in one. Yeah and I think the packers are. The packers last were an interesting team. So we're thirteen and three, but they really didn't look great during her teen in three hundred sounds crazy. You didn't have a lot of blowout games Aaron Rodgers kind of scuffle in the offense wasn't great. Defense was a hell of a lot better with the to Smith's. And they were just really solid team. This year Farah Rogers plays the way that he did against the Minnesota Vikings that he is that type of MVP. Player again, I mean that team is head and shoulders the best team in the division. So we'll see what happens against the lions this week you know the lions a lot of hype going into the year on the lions they were going to take that step forward and staffer being healthy was going to be the difference if they come out and get smoked by the packers are two with two division losses to start the year and he just going to be another long year four Detroit. Interesting game you're vikings at the colts. Yeah. I know I don't like them at all. That's an interesting game. You got the broncos at the steelers. I'm sure you know. Tampa. Bay Is GonNa come out flying this week. They will. They will come out flying this week better. Kinds of city at the chargers you know great pass rush athletes all over the place, but you know. I don't know mahomes against tyrod Taylor. `Bout Lamar. Jackson. against. HOUSTON. That game that that should be a more interesting game than than it is because of those two quarterbacks but again, you think about the Texans opening up with those two teams I mean my Lord. Dot. com schedule and have Monday night you got the saints at the at the Las Vegas Raiders New Orleans Las Vegas Yeah. The NFL sending a message or something or what? Yeah. I don't know I I do like Sean Payton Man Oh my goodness. got. Everybody. They're all the game I'm actually it's too bad. It's Sunday night football because Sunday football stinks to me in the best game time in the world is the four o'clock Sunday window. That's the best one recent down you settle into great game Sunday night I can't stand we got. We got the double header on CBS this week. So we have Kansas City at the chargers at four, twenty, five and Baltimore Houston four, twenty, five to one hundred percent of the country. So that's good. Big Names. I, the four twenty, five window be interesting to see what the the ratings look like. Hopefully could be good. But. I. Most intrigued by the Patriots and Seahawks this week is what I was gonNA. Say just hate the fact that it's Sunday night football because at that point. It's tough man it's tough. You have to watch all the football to be as interested. In that Nike let's go to. BILL IN SOUTH ORANGE GO ON, Bill going. To happen. And Help you guys have a good weekend just quick giants question because grow off your here. After Not. Getting, anything when I think they could have got their peak for Ingram. All I worry about the day we drafted Barklay has been blocking blocking blocking. do you see any possible move? They would be able to make to just. Up that offensive line a little more With that with these guys and they say have a great weekend. All right. Thanks man, you know number one nick. Gates. Had A rough night. Against Cam Ward, he's GONNA make everybody bad and that was not the easiest place to start your career at center. I can tell you that and then Cameron Fleming while a pro. That's exactly what he is a pro. You know he's not going to be lighting it up at tackle for you and I think. Both guys held up in pass, protection. Okay. But there were a lot of holes in the one thing I will say about Saquon. Barkley. He is an outside the guys slashing runner. He's not like I don't consider him a downhill runner. He's not Ezekiel Elliott. He's not derrick. Henry. He's not nick or or Kareem Hunt that you saw last night he's a slasher. He's you gotta get him the ball away from the line of scrimmage. Anyway you possibly can screens wide patterns a lineup up as a wide receiver. You minds me a lot of when I played with. James Brooks is a lot. Of other things he can do other than just always starting as an eye back nine. Oh, that's what he did at Penn State and he was great at it and you know if he gets a whole or just gets a little bit of a crack, he can make a huge Platt of it because of his speed and elusiveness but he is not a guy that you know I'm going to hand the ball fifteen times and ask them to go running through the tackles all the time. He's not Brandon Jacobs says that's not who he is. Yeah. But you know I'm fine with that. If you had a lot of big chunk plays, he had him catching balls out of the backfield. You had him contributing in this offense ways that we see a lot of these. You know the the Todd Gurley when he was healthy type of thing like if you see some of that, you know Christian McCaffrey for crying out. Loud. Yeah. I some of that. Has To be like you know he's got to be a little bit more those guys and Alvin Kamara. Another one. Alvin Kamara always had a guy there were there was mark Ingram Latavius Murray, who would do the dirty work they want to take. A sledgehammer right I in between the tackles, and unfortunately you know when you when you draft a gold jacket guy like saquon was described to us by Dave, gentleman, you to make sure that he could do it all and part of that, and a big part of that responsibility is Tiki was pointing out if you want to be an every down back. There are GonNa be times or you're going to be asked to pick up a blitz and you just have to do it. You can't you can't like get picked off by your tackle. You gotta you gotTa have a football sense about you to understand where where maybe the guy is coming from and look they played a very difficult defense I keep saying this in week one in a new offense of system. So that is going that would be part of the problem I think they'll get better as they go along as they get more comfortable in the system so he still has to. Adhere. To his responsibilities that's that's the point and by the way if it's on tape as Tiki. Accurately, said, if it's on tape, everybody out there sees it guess what you're going to see. You're going to see the same thing over and over and over again until you do something about it, and that's Jason Garrett, and that's up to the player himself each the morning show with boomer Esiason. Greg's Saudi boomer and Geo got a recco update and our picks was really really hoping I could go five with you guys starting one in four and that could have happened the giants. Cover but it didn't happen. So one in five or last week no, you went to in three. So what I was saying was that would have happened if the giants covered but it didn't. So instead you guys are two and three and four and one. So to gain lead after week, one can't complain see if we can build on that this week as defending champion as we mentioned before the pressure is all on boomer boomer is sort of like the Mitch, Trubisky of our picks. Sort of been there and he's been okay. But now the fan base has really starting to breathe down his neck because they need to see him perform Jerry one two years ago I won last year. He hasn't one thing. So this is it. We'll see if we'll pick up your third year option fourth year option whatever is on the picks you got to perform this year. So pressure is on appreciate support of course, always always Jerry's got the update what's happening? Well, the good news is with the islanders losing we get to hear more of this for another round of good row. Behind. Rally Jute. Scott. Cardinal. Anthony Sarah League the game winner. If you couldn't tell their Dave Michigan on lightning radio that ends the islanders season as the lightning wind up winning in overtime to one Andre Vasilevskiy with twenty six saves in the loss Varlamov and forty six for the aisles. But again comes in defeat had coach buried trots going forward still need to be better to again until you you climbed that mountain, we got We got fairly close but you know we can see the mountain top we never gotten to the mountaintop so I don't know if you'll know this or not. But did, Dave Michigan when the the lightning one cop did he was he the play by play announcer because if they win the Cup with him as the announcement I duNNo. If he's done one of these calls again. When they won the last cup but he he may spontaneously combust. Win The Stanley Cup. Light himself on fire. Fills. Dave's on fire so. He's burning if somebody wants to put them out. Here. Who? Foam you just inflames. Spitting fire. Yeah I just know more Michigan after this right I mean we're not going to go. The Stanley Cup, are you kidding me? I said before the only time that I'm going to find out what happened in the Stanley Cup finals and you tell me Jerry that's how much attention I'm GONNA pay to it lightning and stars with everything else that's going on stop with the I think but but I think in fairness I. Think we still give it at the end of the segment. Okay that's fine but I don't think we need Michigan. We do like the TV. No, we do. If they score and we do Michigan. Phil Esposito, wants this to continue or not at the point now I think he does. This thing I was I was just looking up Dave Michigan and the one lead into him as iconic radio commentator. Dave Michigan Calls the highlights of the bolts two one victory over the islanders. Conic. There's some lady Fan that posts all the highlights every day on Youtube. Yeah Rowdy goal I guess if he was your guy, you'd like them but. The rest of us are appalled. Rutgers fans feel about Jerry No. No no one is appalled by. Like all rutgers, Fans Love Jerry RECCO. RECCO suck it up to rutgers. Are Behind him look at that. Yeah. But you know that if someone hears a Jerry RECCO basketball call, they're saying all right. That's a professional play by play guy doing a good call and I think this is some clowns screaming at the top of his lungs sitting next to somebody who doesn't know what he's watching I might have had a clown call here or there, but not every game but. That was Columbia that was a football game that was a mistake error I call it too soon. Yes. Marmalade call to Oh that was awesome. That was the each year Oh. Yeah. EJ Guru or whatever the hell you did. Not, H. E. G. G. Jon. For Data. That's my favorite. What's your police reference? I also Google Dave Michigan he's been with the lightning. This is seventeen the year. Okay. So we called that cop back in. That's why he's iconic Y- seventeen seasons. God bless them how about that? Anyway. Bill advance don't play the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup final. Okay. Total, snooze. Stars and lightning. Oman, what can I tell you hockey fans love it. You don't that's fine I, but here's the hockey fans even love it like if you're someone who is a big fan of the islanders and they just got knocked down. Watching the Stanley go 'cause your team just lost, you're probably completely deflated I. Bet boomer watches these Games. Sure one hundred percent. With everything else that's going on up in.

You know which is a testament to them but then the Yankees are bombing home runs in the out of you know grinding it out. And then you have I'm telling you this. This heat Boston thing got really interesting because Boston after the game snapped in the locker room. Yes. That's all we hear since you mentioned that the final score of that game was one of six, one, zero one and they snapped because they gave up another double digit lead believe they're up by fourteen or fifteen in the second quarter and the heat wind up with the wind and the two series lead Goran Dragic with twenty five Bamut a bio had twenty one points, ten rebounds tonight you get Lakers Nuggets Game One of the Western Conference finals. The Yankees did win they beat the Blue Jays ten, seven, complete the sweep. They had five home runs in the inning alone back to back to back shots from Gardner, Lemay and Voight, and then back to back homers after a Hick strikeout by Stanton and Gleyber, Torres Stanton out himself on ice four hit night. Here's Boone. Aaron Boone on the team sweeping I mean that's an impressive series right there Yeah. Yeah. No doubt as far as stanton he says, this lineup is flat out scary when healthy that is a good word for scary is right To all of us in there once you know it's it's something special.

Indiana's go the final seven and a third of one hit baseball. They did walk a few is but one hit baseball there's got to strike outs in the ninth. He did do a lot of balls to associates question if Steve, Cohen, were the owner of the mets last year? Who would the manager of the mets be this year Joe? Girardi Casey Stengel. Somehow found a way to bring Gil Hodges back to life as what he would have maybe balked. May would've maybe popped but Joe Madden wouldn't. Him in New York fit I don't think. Do, you think Roti and Steve, or having Frappuccino. Maybe, this should be having frosty Chino's shoes. They should you're right? But seem to be Frappuccino type guys of course. Yeah.

Now you see you got a different opinion on it. I swear to God I would have every one of these photos. Blown up and I would have them in the locker room. There you go. Guys moment of the day and Jerry weekend. All right. You Too Jerry thank you. It is boomer and Geo. Thing back for the picks I am. Yes. That's right. That's right I. Forgot about. And we you're go. Right. That's still stands as an offer that we will accept. Each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Naughty boomer and Geo. All right last week. I did have a good week i. told you about it every single day because that's what I do and I have a good week as I gloat. I went four and one I am currently in first place and boomer and are tied for second or last depends on how you look at it with a two and three record. We've got our week two picks that are brought to you by. Odds trader dot com where the pros go to handicap and by Solo Stove smokeless portable firepit available at Solo Stove Dot Com. What's happening week to in the NFL Jerry Wreck we've got five games for you three outside the area to with the jets the giants game number one, the La Rams off their Sunday night win over the cowboys they opened up the brand new so-fi stadium, hit the road for Owen, one Philadelphia who choked like dogs in Washington, the Eagles a point and a half Acre. I really liked the rams I liked him going into the year I liked them against the cowboys I was one of the picks both you guys the cowboys I, the rams. This is going to be a theme for me throughout the year bounce back year for Sean McVeigh and the Rams I really hated the way the eagles blue that game against the Washington football team and that offense that should not be any good in Washington loved the rams in this one that spread is way too low Gimme La. Rams to even though they are coming off of a Sunday night. Game and they got to travel all the way to these coves and believe you me Doug Peterson and Carson Wentz have been here again Philadelphia. Adam gays and Sam Darnold Vin hearing it here. No last week Carson Wentz have one of the worst weeks in the NFL had thirteen poor throws and that was basically the worst of any quarterback that started for team that includes Sam darnold believe it or not. So I do I like the rams to I think Aaron Donald is a guy that you know if you watch his game against. Hours all you need to know about the rams I'm taking the rams pains me to say this but I think the eagles bounce back at the rams very impressive after that first drive last week I will take philly minus one and a half as mad that they beat your cowboys. Oh no no not at all the take an eagles yet your mind. Gain number, two chiefs in La against the chargers, the charges at home getting eight and a half. Sometimes it's simple. Sometimes, you have to look at the two quarterbacks and say there is no way that a tyrod Taylor led offense can keep up with the Kansas City chiefs. They add the extra time they're healthy. It's not that big of a trip to go out there to la they'd never played in that stadium the chargers fans, there's no advantage this'll get ugly and maybe a back door cover could purchase one but this is a twenty one point. Just destruction of the chargers in this I agree and Patrick Mahomes is. GonNa Light. Up that new stadium, he'll put up about three hundred and fifty yards this week although his backup quarterbacks Chad hetty and Matt Moore said that he played better last week and maybe his best game ever because he took all the check downs tyreek Hill has a big game here. I. Like the Kansas City chiefs to cover the number meets to I would take minus eighteen and a half. I had to gain number three New England at Seattle seahawks giving up four. Most intriguing game of the week for me and you know how much I love Cam Newton and the Patriots, and there's going to be the bill bell check storyline. was mother just passed away but I think the seahawks are a super bowl contender I think day offensively will be able to put up some pretty impressive numbers albeit that there was a great performance by the Patriots Defense in week one. I. Just think that the seahawks have too much firepower right now they're a better team, a better spot I like Seattle in this one. Not by a ton think Seattle covers a number of wins no twelve's meeting maybe one of the hardest places to play in the NFL, the fans are in the building. So like coach bowel check said last week and it's like a scrimmage. Now it's like a four way scrimmage which is going to go out there and just go play some football because we love the game of football nobody loves the game of football more than Bill Belichick. Russell Wilson is awesome. He is awesome Jamal. Adams is going to get into it with Cam Newton. John a lot of Chirpin going on I'm taking the Seattle Seahawks at home I will take the Patriots will be close game plus the four-game number four we bring it home and local the jets plus seven taking on the niners Greg stake in the niners boomer no, no, actually not believe it or now I don't think the jets will win but I'm actually going to take the jets the cover because there are so many injuries going on with the forty niners. So all right D-, Ford missed practice with a neck injury George kittles got that knee thing. That I don't think he's going to play Richard Sherman is out they've got issues here ivy I. Mean they really do plus the Super Bowl hangover thing for the loser to me is a real thing and Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't been great for an extended period of time. Now I, don't know I actually think the jets keep this close. If they've got any pride in any guts at all, they play hard in this game. After what they've heard this week, they won't win I don't think but I, think that they keep this close, maybe a four point gain. For All the aggravation that I've been through this week. Because the jets and because of trying to support them and trying I don't want to hear about it. That's it. I'm going with the jets. Just for that reason, I will take the jets as well. I think they keep it close a chance late, and then the giants in Chicago another one PM game, the giants getting five and a half soldier field. Maybe. I'm too bullish on the giants, but I'm I'm going with them. I think teams like the bears where defense to me is a little bit overrated. It's a good defense a little bit overrated. Teams like the bears were their offense is average or below average I think the giants matchup with them. Average below. APP. Average Zach type. A team I expect giants to beat is the Chicago bears I think Donald Deve covering this one but I think that they win the game you know the giants did lose by ten points on Monday night. You know that right? But you know how those don't even try to sell me this crap. They were up in a game. They could he threw a pick in the end zone and could have made it seventeen sixteen they played great against a really really good football teams don't give you the non-south. Okay. Lots Gray Pass rushers in this game as well for the other team and they do have a lot of good wide receivers versus suspect secondary. I'm digging the bears I'll give the points and take the bear to I. Buy the bears I'll take the giants with the five and a half as well. You're right.

"Why from the investors Bank studio Boris is Greg Jian Audie, boomer and geo on the fan simulcast across the country on CBS sports network to morning, more drama out of the Mets yesterday. They couldn't just meet the media and squash this thing and move on in had to get worse. Of course. It did I Mickey Callaway comes out and says a bunch of stuff seems contrite about it seems to apologize without really apologizing. And then after that Twitter gets a hold of everything. It says Galloway dozen apologize. Doesn't say, I'm sorry stopped short of saying, I'm sorry. So then, of course, everybody looks at Twitter in the Mets organization sees that reaction. So they send them back out there looking like a fool and saying, I just wanted to say that I'm. Sorry, I apologize for that just want. You think it's over. There's a report out there that Brody van wagon and his holing of members of the Mets. Stab down in the dugout during games to make decisions mainly. Jacob degrom. One point him out of a game because of that nip. Cram. So yesterday should have been a alright something bad happen. Now we've moved on, but instead because it's the Mets, it was something bad happened. But still some gasoline on. And then light it on fire bomber you back. Good morning. Good to see our you get morning GIO. And I'm glad you clarified it that Brody bandwagon as calling somebody on the staff. Now it's not the pitching coach, it's whoever it is. It's not the manager, it's probably somebody in either the training staff or somebody connected to the analytics department that may be traveling with the team. So that, that's who they're calling out. I've never heard of anything like this. I've never seen anything like this. But, you know, we actually made fun. A being a manager in today's major league baseball by because we believe that analytics guys are the ones that are sending down the lineups to the manager and saying this is who were playing today. This is who's off today. That's why didn't play on Sunday. You know, because he needs a rest and all this other crap and all this other analytics, now, I've lauded, Brodie van wagon for trying to ramp up the international scouting, led by Omar. And because that's where he probably is going to be most effective. I also said, hey, you know what he is trying to catch up to the Antes in the world of analytics, and sabermetrics and all that other stuff. And then applying that to the team on the field, but I have never heard of general manager basically calling out, you know a player and getting him off the field doing large part to an injury when he's sitting at home. So here's a couple of things that I just I sit here and I, I didn't. Unfortunately, wasn't what you guys just that I was doing something else, and I was thinking about finally Mickey Callaway showed some balls on Sunday night or Sunday and got after somebody. I know it was an a reporter and all that other stuff. He can say whatever you want about those relationships because they're on a daily basis. They see other. So I don't know what is driving the anx between the reporter and of course, the team, of course, the reporter all, you know, I didn't do anything. I was just trying to take a bio, see you tomorrow. You never know how those things are taking, especially after a tough loss Chicago that they needed to win on Sunday. They needed to win that game and take three out of four from the cubs that would have been really feel good story. And then maybe come back, and you win until Stephen Matt's goes, you know of Kuku for cocoa puffs on the mound last night. So I with all of this stuff, I'm just telling you, it's not surprising because it's a rookie general manager, you know that we've been talking about that a second year coach who basically want to hold onto his job. The manager wants to hold onto his job because the reason he got the job is because he was going to listen to the front office. And now there's somebody somebody one of these players is gone to Mike, Puma, and given could be one of the guys that got fired. Well could could be Dave island could be one of those guys as well. You're right. You're right. I didn't even think about that. So there's somebody that's disgruntled whether it be a player or somebody who's fired. And sounds to me men, you know, now that now that I think about it the way you said it may be Dave island is the guy that's giving or the bullpen. The bullpen coach to go somebody's somebody's giving intimate secrets to the media the show. How ridiculous the Mets are being run. And also to defend Mickey Callaway in a sense because Mickey right now is getting pulled in a million different directions. And he's also taking the brunt of the criticism. And maybe he shouldn't be. And if I'm Mickey Callaway, maybe it wasn't Tim Healy of Newsday that set me off. Maybe it's my general manager. Maybe it's my PR stabbed. Maybe it's all these people in. Maybe it's the owner these people that are pulling me in a million different directions. The same people that are trotting him back out there, again after face the music just to say, I'm sorry, I apologize. I mean that was that puppet written all over it, and the. That somebody looked at the Twitter reaction and said, oh, he didn't apologize. You have to apologize. Let's now call the reporters again. And you have to say, I'm sorry. I mean, this thing couldn't have looked worse. You know, the other thing is you made a really good point off the air. And I don't know if you've remember so bring it up if this were, let's say the jets Monique Mehta. Yeah. Would there be any of the reporters coming to manage made made his defense? Well, no. And this is why I think this is why believe that, you know, Tim Healy didn't really do anything wrong for a couple of reasons. One all these other beat reporters mobilized behind Tim Healy and had his back. And also Jeff ended up calling him personally to say we are sorry. And if Tim Healy was some sort of if thorn in the side of the Mets organization, I don't think any of that stuff would have happened, if people didn't have respect for him and on top of it, by the way, Tim Healy, did not. He declined. Our interview request he recalling all interview requests yesterday. Hey, didn't make it about himself. There's a couple of reasons. It makes me think this was more of a Mickey Callaway, Jason Vargas losing their mind in the moment, and maybe misplaced anger towards Tim Healy in that particular instance, more than anything I, maybe just maybe a watershed moment one way or the other one, meaning the team would have the back of their manager Mickey Callaway because that's what it looked like. Especially with the way, barcus reacted, or to this is going to be a free for all and become a circus. Thanks. Thank you all for sharing that, man. It was very nice. If you look at that see we work in concert here on like the Mets you've been doing curls again. How you look. And good. But so I so I think maybe watershed moment GIO that maybe they're fighting for their manager. Maybe they're not. And then last night, you know, you're only good as the next day starting pitcher who is by the way, tile lock. It today. Walker lock it. So the point being is that I we're now almost smack dab to where we were last year in June, where June basically is getting ready to come and go. And it's been a scuffling Mets. And it's been a disaster. At if you ask me now what now what, you know, to me, this is on Brody and this is like Robinson. Canot kion Brockton jed Lowrie Edwin d as Jerry's familiar Jerry's familiar bringing him back. Those five guys have been an absolute disaster. I mean disaster and the Mets about get blown seventeen or eighteen leads after having the lead in the seventh inning. I mean that reeks of a crappy bullpen rally. Together. Well back to the most significant parts brought into the most significant parts in familia. And let's not forget about Justin Wilson has been hurt too. Now. You can't control the injuries all the time, but it's another part of it. But then the other thing, the, the maybe the biggest embarrassment and the biggest disgrace on a baseball diamond has to be Robinson. He has to be, I'm sorry. You can't make that much money and perform at the level that he's performing at. And I know he's got an easy way about him the way fields the ball the way hits way, swing. I get all that because he's so good that he could act as, if he doesn't care doesn't look like he's putting a lot of effort into it, you know what when you are losing, and you're playing poorly as he is. And you and you get hurt because you actually do run, and then it's almost like you come back from that and drains like I'm not gonna run anymore because I don't want to get hurt. What are you doing? Why are we paying you twenty five million dollars? And why do you have four years left than that contrary? He's, he's numbers are embarrassing. We were going through it yesterday. He is. Is not gonna come close to anywhere where he's been in his career by we all thought, by the way, at least that first year this year, at least be okay? And now this is a pathetic year, and it's only gonna get worse from here at that same ridiculous number the marriage pulled a fast one on Brody bandwagon, and they completely took advantage. Well, there was there was money to be moved around, and then what gave it as wars act. They got rid of J BRUCE'S money. They brought in some money, the, the Mariners some extra money in there. So, you know, who knows there's, there's a reason why Brody van wagon went to Jeff wilpon and said we could do this deal. Save some money in the short term, and then maybe figure out something a couple years down the road because we have at least a reasonably good Robinson canot, but he just he is like dysfunction central what between him and Brodie van wagon. And, and then I know watching him on Sunday. An the guys on TV and I'm sure you guys went over this yesterday. So I'm sorry. I wasn't able to hear but. You know, everybody knew that Lugo had lost it. You could see it and because he had been pitching so much because his pitch count was webby that one I think is first at bat. There were ten pitches. He threw in a ball kept getting fouled off, Al Valda and it basically worked. He worked himself into a frenzy and gave up a home. The bison. Oh to pitch. Everybody wanted at that point. I'm like I wanna d- at that point. But do you have any competent windy, as this shouldn't now I still thought, because of how Lugo looked at that point, and Lugo, admitted that he didn't have anything? He couldn't really explain why just on. I'll maybe humidity. I don't know. But the fact that he didn't have anything a you least gotta give a shot because it was twelve pitches in eight days, whatever it was. But, you know, we went over that back and forth yesterday. I'm not saying that went has been great. It was just that moment, Lugo, who has been your best pitcher, if you put that under the microscope, in that one particular moment, he just he just didn't have it. So. You know, Mickey Callaway at this point, Jason Vargas. They get fined yesterday. They could not have looked worse. And maybe was Mike Vaccaro who tweeted out, but the Mets basically had twenty four hours to figure this whole PR thing out, twenty four hours to figure it out and essentially right around there and came up with that Mickey Callaway, having to come out twice because he didn't say, I'm sorry. And then Jason Vargas standing up there after this is a guy who said, I will knock you the bleep out. Bro threatening to knock out a reporter just because he looked at him in a different way or whatever the reason was the fact that he stood up there and said yes to bed, this is a distraction, so we got a game to play. I'll talk to you later, essentially what he had to say walked away without taking questions. How's that any accountability say, Mickey welcome to New York, and this is what managing New Yorkers like and welcome to New York Brody wagon the fluid to the top come get us. We're the best team in the league. I mean got on money. This is just sparring attic control, and it's only gonna worse. And I don't see it getting any better. I, I don't know what the answer is. You got a fire the general manager and the manager again and you're going to start over now. It's not going to have. I mean, he's not gonna have me Mickey's done at some point. I mean, I know that they said that he's actually feel bad from because because if it is, Dave island that is or, or the other pitching coach whatever the hell is name was given the info, Mike Puma and Puma putting it out there the way he has put it out there. It is a it is a major major stain on Brodie van wagon. I'm sorry. You can't I mean you come in, and you make all these boastful statements because you know what? Major league baseball. You don't make statements respect the game, respect the team, you're playing against you. Can't come in there and go like we're going to be the greatest thing ever. You got to kind of hold back. I would just say wanna be cautious and he was anything, but that this off season and now his biggest moves have all been absolute duds the guys that are actually playing well guys that were already here. Sure. Yeah. You know, you said you mentioned you feel bad for Mickey. I didn't until yesterday yesterday when he had to come back out, and he said, I got some feedback meaning that either Brody the piece, someone from the PR staff or Jeff told him to go back out there just to say the words, I apologize or I'm sorry at that very moment. I felt like he had just been his balls had been completely cut off. There was nothing left at that moment. That's exactly how I felt and I wish he would have said. No, I'm not going back out there. I just sat there for ten minutes answered all the questions adequately. And I told you I felt about it if I didn't want to apologize for it. I don't have to apologize for it now, you're going to send me out there disingenuously after clearly, we are just reacting to the other reaction to make me look like a full. No. If he would've stood up and told them. No, then maybe what a game. A little more respect. And maybe we'll receive another phone call from Brody van wagons beach. House telling him to take pitcher out. You know, when you hear the word communicator, these guys are good communicators chore. Aaron Boone, always. He gets good communicator. And then they also you hear he's good. He works with within a great collaboration of the front office. So I mean, all that means is that they do what they're told to do without any kickback whatsoever. That's what that means. That's why guys like you know Terry Francona Joe Madden. Girardi Joe Girardi are kind of all gone by the wayside because these front offices are taking over these games from building the lineups to tell you when somebody's should sit to this point, where general manager calls somebody on the staff. The medical staff Intel's that person go tell Mickey Callaway to get Jacob degrom out. And by the way, Jake, Jake up Graham has got hip problems foot problems. Where did all this stuff come from? Yeah. I mean it hasn't held them back all that much, though. We have to twice he's been taken out against because of these things. Yes. But it's and it's led to a leaky bullpen yet, but that that hip cramp thing to me. Well that was the one that we're talking about with Brody making. The ground was pissed off about taking out of that game. And I think what's happening is that he's not pissed off. Mickey's pissed off at somebody who's sitting in his beach house, making the call to get him out of the game. Right. And I have to give degrom credit because he actually stood up and said, I want to represent the team and talk about this to reporters, and he volunteered to do that. And he he sat there and answered questions, unlike Jason Vargas, who was a direct. Actor in this whatever you want word, you want to say he was responsible for a lot of this nonsense. And he didn't answer any questions and Jacob degrom stood up there. And he spoke to the press, Representative leader one's a leader one's player and who's actually having a reasonable good year. I don't think that Jason Vargas would be the other thing he wouldn't have done a last year because he was awful last year. And we talked about how awful, he was and even at the beginning of this year, we're saying, well vs your fifth star. You're gonna be you're gonna have a chance to win that fifth game or whatever. And he's turned out to be the Jason Vargas that they thought they signed two years ago, and he's actually been performing above average. Well above average well above expectations. On a pitching staff that has been nothing but short of expectations and has been frustrating, an inconsistent this supposed to be the strength of the team that I this, why I still always fall. My damn guys a good team. But they just keep blowing leads play. Right. They had saved half of their blown saves think about the situation, they'd be that's the point. So that's why I do point at the at the bullpen for that. But I also point at, you know, an inexperienced general manager and what that general manager was saying in the beginning. I think about six months ago when he took over all of us felt okay breath of fresh air, you know, different way of doing things convincing the owner to spend some money here and there, and maybe bringing India's and canot was camouflaged, like this is going to be our big splash. But you know what we're taking money from one other area and we're just replacing with what these guys in it's going to look good on paper, the perceptions going to be good. The problem is neither one of those guys have performed to the level that they were expected to. And I'm talking about canot India's. I mean, they have now is the signature move. They really have been bad, and I wait for them to turn it around you waiting for them to find because, you know it's the baseball season goes up and down. But what the problem with the Mets is right now is that there is a perception that they are falling back into this dysfunctional poorly run meddling organization. Exactly. And that's exactly what's been on display the last couple of days if you missed the audio from yesterday, or when you heard it the first time you were confused get another chance to hear. Jerry will be in just a little bit to detail. Those press conferences yesterday. Boomer and geo. Just getting started on the fan. CBS sports network eats. The mooning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti, boomer and geo Mets at their best yesterday making a bad situation worse, somehow, some way with the way that they addressed the screaming and yelling in the threats that happened in the clubhouse, Tim Healy of Newsday declining interview requests, taking the high road referencing the David Lennon article that was in Newsday saying, go to that if you want my account of things, and then the Mets go out. And try to do the right thing. But it doesn't work out. Is Mickey s to go out there twice? And then, of course, reports now that Brody van wagon is calling the dugout to speak to people to relate messages to Mickey Callaway to make in game decisions specifically removing Jacob degrom from the game that time he had the hip cramp, if you remember that from a couple of weeks ago, the Yankees continue to roll, however and Jerry's going to have all that stuff right now in his update. Good morning Jerry ago morning brought to you by Warner. Brothers way systems, long island's number one choice for your waste collection and recycling needs. Visit winters B R O, S dot com. We'll take it. We'll do the game first and then we'll get to all the off the field stuff. And yes, we will get to the Yankees who are a machine right now. Phillies Mets game goes back and forth, a this point we pick it up with the Mets in front by a running Michael Franko at the plate Edwards where he wants it so Matt's. Can't throw him a cookie here. The pitch swigging drives Tepes. Centerfield back. Goes conforto. It's gone. He got a cookie chewed. Every last bit it up. Sure. Did how he rose. Hi. I'm Howie rose eighty hi Howie Franck, go, the home, run their Jay Bruce within highlight of four run sixth inning. That broke the game wide open with a two run Homer. Phillies beat the Mets thirteen to seven Scott Kingery, and gene cigarroa combined seven for twelve in the one to spot in the batting order, all was good. Not good though, for Stephen Matt. See suffered the loss. Seven runs on tenants over just four and a third for Mickey Callaway. It was a tough one. You know, just leaving the ball up couldn't consistently get ahead. And when he tried to execute a pitch can lift it up and they, they swing the basketball did. Here's Matt's pretty much agreeing with the assessment the ball of his own today. And then maybe pay sure did Todd Frazier who had himself denied homered in this game. Also drove in a run earlier, as well as need to move on to keep trying to find ways we put voter for five six and. And. Could must w along with Frazier pen came in pounders got pounded. Yeah. Get rid of that guy to men, just I'm sorry. Brooks. Pounders just got here. Yeah. You know, I think it's I is I on for many. He threw behind the batter think in Chicago. I. Ago was but God, he's he's brutal. Dominic Smith Wilson romo's. Michael conforto. All hit home runs in the loss as well. You've got Walker. Lock it against Jake Arrieta tonight now in terms of the off the field stuff, so hair was Brodie van wagon. And this is the first time we heard from him what did you do after what happened Sunday with Mickey and Jason Vargas. And the reporter we have taken action, and we organization have decided to define both Mickey and Jason for their roles in the incident. And at this point, we're ready to move on. He says lesson learned for the mixed. I think that he understands that from a leadership position that we can't lose control. And, and he knows that that's not something that should have happened. And certainly not something that intends to avenue haven't again. So Mickey spoke as well and his first time through two times through here. We was the first time addressing it's something that happened. You live with it got to talk to Tim personally, were fine. Do you want to Apollo? Jobs publicly. Like I said, I can I can control my reactions better. Absolutely. And so he left he thought it was over. And, but it wasn't he had come back out and clarify everything I get some feedback that, you know. That wanted you to know that in my, my meeting with Tim, I apologize for my reaction shouldn't regret it. I regret the you know the distractions. It's calls to the team. It was just like it was like watching a pig on a spit, just get roasted yesterday. What was going on? That's what I felt when he had to go back out there. And he said, I've got I got some feedback. Yeah. And I just wanted you guys to know that in my meeting I apologized to him. I mean, that was a direct result of someone somewhere looking at all the reaction to Mickey's, first media session and say, and seeing the he didn't apologize and apologize. He didn't say, I'm sorry stop. Sure of saying, I'm sorry. And then they trotted his ass back out there again. I mean just embarrassing the I, I have not felt bad for Mickey Callaway up until that moment yesterday because he's not his own man as often. He's not his own men in this organization. Thing to deal with. Why did he was hired in the first place? I know but this is exceptionally bad. We all joke about Aaron Boone. I mean, this is like fifty times worse than that. The winning. That's really the difference between the two clubs and the managers. I think both managers are good. Really good baseball. Men. I think Mickey came out a little bit ridiculous with we're gonna love everybody more than I've ever been loved before. I mean that's a little bit over the top. But just kind of like Brodie van wagon was over the top when he said he had fluid to the top and come yet we're going to deliver a chance sheer and every year to come. Right. And you are your in your New York. This is why coming here is very difficult because once it starts to spiral, it goes hard to stop it. And it is you can't get the moment back and have yesterday code have stopped it yesterday. What they needed to do is win on Sunday and win yesterday. We wouldn't even be talking about any of this stuff, so important parcel of losing and mousetrap and being angry. I actually liked the fact that maybe it was it was generated in into the wrong direction, but actually like the fact that. Mickey Callaway showed me a little bit of who he is. I said that yesterday too. I agree just in the wrong spots. I mean that's the problem. We wanted to do that to Robinson canot when he didn't run out a ground ball, not to team Healy, because he said, I'll see you tomorrow and then you have this out. This Mike Puma article, and that my article is basically telling you what the entire roster already knows that Mickey is not in control by any of that, though, by what he he's not calling in from his from his sweet saying pinch hit him, you know, so, and so in the spy do agree, and I'll play air. So we Brody was asked about the reports that he's making calls during the game. Not true. You don't get involved with in game strategy with Mickey contact him in any way. No, no in game decisions or ever ever called down from the Doug. So he was asked about the June first game that was the game in Arizona were degrom came out. Yeah. So I'm not going to get into the specifics of one game or another. But I can tell you that we do communicate with the training staff and the training room when there's a player that suffers an injury. And that's where he came out shortly, but precaution for cautionary and Jacob degrom was ticked off for being taken wrecked. And Mickey would have never taken him out. But Mickey was told to take him out. Right. But that is the problem that I, I do get that the idea that he's being told pinch it so-and-so, bunt now do this, which him out. I don't believe. Pretty explicit very clear with how we felt about this whole thing. And it's not the way that you're characterizing we basically said he contacted the training staff. Right. Right. Yeah. Exactly an injured player making fortune. But then also said take them out of the game. Right. Which is which is a because of injury. But right. All right. So but he's not there. He doesn't know how say the trainer is their trainers telling him what the what they think it is. Okay. But lies in that communicate of the manager who's they're managing the game wise. It take a phone call from brody's house at the trainer that, but it seems like just talking to people in the newsroom, the idea is that why are those people Calloway say they should be on the air. Okay. Go, John, my point. Is it seems like we're making Mickey Callaway sound like there's a button Mickey push known Brody pushes. And he does what he says we're not making way we're not didn't say that in terms of the article and what's being portrayed right now. By you guys. But in general, that's why we've been accurate Saul out of the whole thing. Stinks is pretty much wanted to write. And that's that's the Mets. Then there are the Yankees and the inky is due at the Yankees do. And that is win a hell of a lot of boggy deals. On the left center. Oh, what a home run over the loading dug into the crown. Giancarlo hits his first home run of the year joint girl knows equals. Go boom. Three run home run. The Yankees ten to leave. John on the fan turned out. They need it all of it. They wound up holding off the Blue Jays ten eight four three runs in the fifth seven more in the six there was standing on. Yes. Homerun number one. It's good good good that I one finally but. Thing you never know how many we're going to need and tonight work out for us Hicks. The go ahead. Three run. Homer, luke. Foyt a two run. Double Yankees new record tying twenty seven game home run streak. Here was six the offense doing the job grace spot. Right scoring runs. We're doing it as a team, which is huge. Totta bomb is doing damage, and that's what we need about the six innings for the win allows just a couple of runs. Aaron boom think mechanically. He got really locked in in just really started command in the strike zone. And I thought it slider was really good tonight, the change of to in the cutter DJ LeMay. Hugh four for four couple runs. Scored continues. Guys doing what he does. Yeah. Yankees fifty and twenty eight now series. Does continue the evening. We will have it for you right here on the fan. Elsewhere Red Sox beat the White Sox. Six five. Marco Hernandez, the game winning RBI infield single rocky shutout. The giants to zip dodgers have their winning streak ended at six games lose to the Diamondbacks. Eight five cubs over the Braves eight to three Milwaukee's. Janas Cuco voted league MVP, courtesy of TNT, Eric calms. Buddy sword. I don't feel like playing I was going show up. And I was going to do that. Amazing about this. Very emotional time, Kuku.

The NBA find the Knicks fifty thousand dollars for violating the league's media rule by not giving. The daily news access to their post rap news conference on Friday. Then there was under would Allah, maybe this something to do with it. Maybe it doesn't who knows maybe just the perception of the Knicks. He was on. CBS NBC thing. Guess he was discussing Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant. And the injuries. They suffered in the finals when at the end, e snuck in just wish the best for both of those guys, they come back for string crushing the Knicks fan. Nobody's Nick sorry. Right. Nobody's going to the Knicks. From those from those guys, maybe with the exception of clay because he'll be back fast with the then Kevin would be back with a, you know. Yeah. I just he's, he's probably right. I bet you there. Those guys all set those locker rooms and laugh at every single story every single stupid. Nothing's happened yet. Right. And I think pre Durant injury. There was a better shot. I don't know if it would dollar would've said that after before the injury happened, blazers trait Evan turned into the hawks for Ken bays more women's World Cup US beat Spain two to one. All right. Thank you. Jerry eats. The morning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo Mets may bad situation worse violence and Phillies last night. And then completely screwing up the damage control of the day before. And now a new report is out there about Brody van wagon lease calling the dugout one time can speak to a medicine ploy e and then that employees relying message to Mickey Callaway to take Jacob degrom out of a game. Do I think is boomer think that Brody van wagons making phone calls directly to Mickey Callaway or texting him? Hey pinch it this guy here. No, it's not what's going on. But the fact that Brody van wagon from his how. House is making a decision to take a guy out of a game in any circumstance is a little bit alarming. And to see Mickey Callaway, half to get trotted out there again after his initial press conference to say the words. I'm sorry, shows you that this guy has absolutely no power. And Mike Puma of the post had said yesterday or the day before after the incident, Chicago, the Mickey Callaway might have been trying to get himself, fired because he doesn't want to be there anymore because as nominee power, and it's too much stress and he's just basically a puppet and now seeing all these things that I have seen the last couple of days, I thought that was an outrageous, take to begin with. But now I give it a little more credence because who the hell wants to being that situation? So here you are the manager of a major league baseball team who has no control over anything. But is blamed for just about everything that sounds horrible. And I know that he's got more time on his contract, and he wouldn't just resign, and that we look horrible and he wants to fight. Through it and he loves his players a million times. But this is not a fun situation of being whatsoever. And I think Brody van wagon and his ultra controlling nature is probably very, very, very difficult thing to deal with if you're Mickey Callaway brought he's not used to this. He's used to being the head of a department CA delegating. Everything telling everybody what to do. It's a different power structure, when your general manager, you can't just do whatever the hell you want whenever they all you want and, and make Kohl's in games. Two pitchers out, because you told a trainer to I mean it's just it's too much and this team right now as you said, the vulture are out, because this is something you have to you have to remember now that the Mets have gone after one of the reporters, the reporters now are going to have they've defending that guy, and they're going to try to pick apart, the stuff that's going on with the Mets more so than ever that stuff will happen. And it's starting to happen and is not a surprise that all of a sudden you get this story about Brody in the phone calls to the dugout coming out after this particular incident. So the Mets have survived it, somehow I cannot impress upon. You guys enough just what it's like to be in a lock room when you're losing around here, and I know this firsthand and I know the growing of the questions, I know what they're diving for know what they're looking for. They want to give the fans something that maybe they haven't heard maybe you know what this is what my poem is done here. You know, he went right to a disgruntled employee, whoever that employee is or ex employees for that matter. And, and got some dirt and throw it out there. And now and now of a sudden it's, it's, it's like wolves to lambs. It's here we go, and it's going to continue and it's only going to get worse unless they start winning and have Stephen Matt's what he did last when you go back to on the field, whether it be decision making by Macau. Away or decision making by Brody bandwagon. And his analytics department why you would sit Jeff McNeil and a game when you know swinging hot bat, and he's one of your best players beyond me. But I guess what they do in baseball. It's called load management, so they had to make sure guy gets a day offer to I think if you want to Jeff McKinney asked him eats out wanna play every single day every single inning. And I want to be the next Cal Ripken. That's the kind of guy it seems like he is. And let's play him in a wrong position again. So he misplayed another fly ball and it's not his fault that he should be at second base, but he's not there because we got one hundred million dollar guy over there that dog and it it's been just basically an anchor on the whole team. Your third place hitter in a lineup is basically not giving you anything. It's, it's mind boggling, that all of the guys that, that Brody van wagon have brought has brought here, maybe with the exception Wilson Ramos who has had moments who's been good sit here and say he's not been good. He's been buying this. You know, he's not gonna be an all star, but at the end of the day, he's better than what we had. So that, that position has been upgraded. Whether we'd like to think so or not it has been, but these other these other players have been nothing but really, I hate to say it just been they've been subpar. They've been banned into think about where the Mets were trying to close that game out in Chicago would've won three out of four would have gotten to two games under five hundred to go then travel to take on the Phillies who had lost seven in a row. And then blowing that game having this incident in the clubhouse having a damage control gone wrong yesterday and then losing to the Phillies thirteen seven last night back to a season low five games under five hundred just like that. Honestly you really needed Stephen Matt's to be good last night. You really need it. They needed it more than ever. You got to you got a guy. That's supposedly is having a you wanna say decent year whatever, but you have a chance to go against team. And I know it's baseball so anything can happen. I listen to John all the time. That's what he says, John stone. This but you, you want your guy Stephen Matt's. Go out there and win the freaking game for you. You know, when you need it the win one of these about today should they needed to win bolted these last two games and said they lost they lost it the one game because of mismanagement of the bullpen overused, Seth Lugo an underused Edwin d as another late game loss where you have the lead late night game. And then you come out with a stinker by one of your supposedly better pitchers. Yep. And it is now in that same spiral feeling when it looked like Dade stabilize themselves for a couple of days. We're back in that same spy feeling. And I, I just I know we always tend to dwell on the negative GIO because that's what sports talk radio does. But you know in the midst of all of this, the Yankees just can continue to win. You know, and they go off to a slow store last night and Stanton hits the ball harder than anybody in baseball for God's sake. Here's this guy know, before he came back was persona non grata in a Yankee uniform. And now of sudden you sit in balls one hundred eighteen miles an hour, Ellison. And he's been great. He's been great coming back and hitting the ball hard, of course planning about him now. Well, not, not right now in Aaron judge, of course with his with his oh for ten was not something that was great does not factor into it last night. Of course gets the night off. But the Yankees old the home runs I was shocked to see that game whatever was tend to, to that point I was thinking all right games over you. Wake up ten eight and then holder, of course who ends up getting optioned after the game a little bit of a scary scenario forum. But I mean they just they could hit themselves out of any bad situation. Amazing thing is camera may have been gone for six weeks. Now miraculously. He pulls a calf muscle and has gone for six weeks. Now, I yell for that actually have something happens if something happens to gar. Partner or something like that. And somebody else goes down. Does he make miraculously recovering come back within three weeks? I'll start to believe that there is a conspiracy theory if that exactly happens. But I mean if you think about on dude mean even even the Yankees injuries or strategic now. How good things exactly what they are. Oh, go to Mike in douglaston. What's happened in Mike? Hey, good morning. You know, more of like a sports, psychology focus. Like at the energy team. And the way you know, as far as focusing more on analysis, but looking at the Mets man, and just trying to enjoy this team as a lifelong fan with a frigate do stuck on my leg. This then teams just unenjoyable to watch. They seem to not be focused on winning at the heart of the team. There's some other motive I swear their preserving their investments on the pitching mound, and isn't a pitcher supposed to be an on field sort of chief and control the game and be the boss saying with the management was that a play the other day to pretend like you're tough guy 'cause at the very day it was talking to one of my neighbors about how they need like David Johnson ever, you need someone to go out there and just, just I mean, just changing tire personality at a met. Mets. I understand that Mike. And I think that, that's what they try to do two years ago. And that's what they tried to do last year. With the new general manager hire outside the box. The problem is, is Mickey came in and he said he was going to love everybody like they've never been loved before. I'm sorry, man. It just doesn't work. And usually when you have a hard ass in there, it lasts maybe two three years, and then you gotta move on from that because he's grinding on people. But right now, it's it's like a country club. It is like easy. You don't go out there. You don't play. Well, you know, he's not going to be although I will say the last couple of weeks. He's been a little bit more pointed in his criticisms. If you've noticed it hasn't been quite as soft as it was prior to that first meeting when they came back home after they lost those three games to Miami. Yeah. And think about these stories now right about Brody van wagon what manager that's got any self respect after Mickey gets fired whenever it is the beginning of the next year. Whatever it sometime in this season. What manager it's got any self respect is gonna take that job. Nobody anybody's got a track record and opinion anybody who thinks that they know baseball. We'll take the job of the general manager is on them. Like white on rice. Well, then, then, then, then I can hire manager like that this is what I'm saying. Brody is going to have to go in higher his his fraternity brother Chet to be the manager of his team. Like he's, he's going to have to go into the archives and dust off another acquaintance because no one else has taken his job, look, who the Mets of hired as their manager and their general manager last two years. And why is that man? Anything to do with ownership and being everything to do with ownersh. Okay. And and you know what? I, I tell you. I am so mad at myself, because I liked the fact that I can change my thoughts. Right. I I don't like that. It always stick with the particular thing, just goes, I thought that initially, and we sat here, and we hated the idea of Brodie van wagon being the general manager. And I said go and get that Higham bloom guy. That's the guy want and want the nerd guy. I want the sabermetrics guy that's the guy I want. But then I decided, oh, let's have an open mind here. Let's do that. And then Brody trots himself out. I mean he smelled good through the television. That's how presentable he is, is hair was perfect. His face was perfect everything he said was great. And he seemed to have this aura about him that mesmerized me to the point where I said, you know, what, this is going to be the guy that changes the wilpon thinking on spending money. He's the perfect guy. The Mets did something different. They. Did something outside of the box. I'm going to give them a chance. And I should have stuck to my original guns in hiring that high in bloom and the baseball nerd, who would have turned his organization around, as opposed to Brodie van wagon being the x Ray client magnet, and going out. And making sure that Robertson can always in a nice landing spot for the rest of his career. Well, I would just say that he is Brody van wagon and Mickey Callaway together are in the blender of hell right now, they are just getting chewed up spit out, and, and they are they're just basically being ground, down grind grind round down yet, ground down. Yeah. We are in the blender of hell yes, we will swirl to we are puree, who is there. Todd bowles. Mike McKenna with their different times. Four out of the blender a hell at different times. They were in there together. There you go down the list of teams and general managers and coaches in this city and you could find them every team got him. Every teams got a moment like this, maybe with the exception of the Antes in the last twenty years, but I would just say that they are right now in the thick of it. It's the mooning show with Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo at eight thirty this morning. We're going to have the reigning Super Bowl NBP in the studio with us Julian Ataman of the New England Patriots is gonna join us. You've had some real hated athletes in the New York area. Join us in studio, chase utley. Jillian, ataman? This is not going to go. Well the jets fans Julian Edelman is in the chase not, not not, but jets fans don't wanna hear from Julian Edelman, do they, I mean. As a one of the all time. Patriots won three Super Bowl Super Bowl MVP, it's just like a reminder of their greatness, maybe will run them by Joe B's office before he comes in into that dump waste onto. I think I think that Joe would probably have some respect for him though. Like Joe's like that, like it he loves Bella check to by the way, Joe he's still to this day loves Bella check. But I'm excited Joanna. My story is incredible. So this a Showtime documentary that's going to debut on Friday and I got a chance to watch the whole thing, and it's, it's very, very interesting. And just like the overcoming everything changing positions in the working out in the ACL. So we're excited. Talk to him at eight thirty. It's been mostly Mets though this morning, of course because that's what it has to be. And I just don't understand. Maybe it's what I do understand. It's the common theme of ownership. It's the common theme of this is how things are done here because it starts at the top, but. It just doesn't seem like the Mets can ever get a handle on a negative situation and be able to handle it properly. They just don't have the tools to do that or the knowledge to do that. And the fact that they botched this thing so poorly yesterday and made it worse than it was. And then it continued to get worse. Even after the press conferences prior to the game because they go out and lose. And then, of course, debris van wagon story comes out, too. So I mean this thing is a mess. There's one cure all and that's going on a hot streak before the all star break. And having a big second half. But how can they do that? When their bullpen is, as bad as it is impossible. I mean, unless you completely rework your bullpen or these guys wake up and turn into different pitchers. This team's going to be this bad. I mean, they're just spinning they this is what happens. They win a couple of games. You feel good about them. They're getting close to five hundred and they fall right back. I mean they would have been two games under. If they would've won that game in Chicago. Ready to go? Face a team that lost seven straight in the Phillies. But what happens they blow that game? They come back, big disaster, clubhouse blow up lucid a Phillies stories about micromanaging. It's crazy. I mean if you just think about Lugo on the mound with the lead to where we are now how did that happen in two days, three days in and it feels like it's only them. It's only then that this happens to it feels like that, but it's probably because we're hyper focused on them. And of course, the Anki is just continue to dominate. And when you just oppose the two it's just it's remarkable tale of two organizations going in different directions every single you have as season general manager, who is seat has been on fire this whole year. And that is Brian Cashman won. I mean by his his on fire. I mean he's been on fire making the sessions bringing guys in putting guys on I L bringing guys back trying to piecemeal together. Either. So it doesn't get out of control and ball. Tell you what, whatever, whatever their feeding their players over there is they need to get some of that in clubhouse. I don't know what it is. It's just it's amazing analysis and Stanton's hot and even though judge is not it's like camouflage because everybody else is still playing well, yeah. Absolutely. I you know, I still say, though, do raise the red flag when it comes to the Yankees for one simple reason and that was Sunday's game. And the reason I say that is because if they see the Astros in playoffs, they're going to see lender twice. And at this moment right now is it is a Tanaka that you're going to try to match up against him when they go face to face, or at somebody that's not on the team right now. I know they didn't even see Morton or get coal, Gary cole-. Yeah. I know. And that's that's what it's all going to come down to and Jay stinks right now. He faked that he can turn it around, because he did that much of a pro and he can get on these streaks, but he has been bad, right? Now. I mean it comes down to one guy. It's win the Madison Bumgarner sweepstakes at the trade deadline Bhiva team to get the big fish at the deadline that turns the tables, this time as opposed to the other teams in the last two years, you missed out on the guy who was the difference maker to the eventual World Series champion. The Astros are not totally healthy. But, you know, if you got a face, you know, coal, and you've got to phase for Lander that's going to be the money spot. And that's why LeMay us here, by the way, a menu is here because he's not a guy that relies on a homerun. He's a guy that gets hit with hits with rosters scoring position. Love the lineup. Love the bullpen. They're missing one start the top the rotation essentially guarantee them an opportunity to play for the world to play for a world chance. That means whoever you trade for soon, they are going to trade for somebody and sounds like they will Tanaka and Paxton will be your top three guys and then the question. Is you go hap-? Do you go about the or what happens if to mingle her, mom or Severino comes back? Well, that's I mean and this is why you'd love to see Severino. Get a couple of tarts before you have to make that decision but even a couple of starts isn't enough. I'd still make the deal. No matter. What is you can't have too many? Good starting pitchers. So what? But with the way the kids are playing GIO. Right. You could just give her mind and several until the middle of August, or give them until the middle of August. Another six weeks or seven weeks, the find out just how good they are. And that actually does impact Armand significantly because he obviously had the innings limit coming into the season. And now he's got this long break in the middle of the season, Suming, he is going to be able to re regain what he was the first eight or nine starts of the year. I mean it's just another just another thing that you have to kind of throw in the mix. And if you are the general manager, these are all the decisions that you have to make around this team and I don't. Not necessarily know that there's a general manager in baseball that has made more decisions than Brian Cashman has had to make through the first remains of the season because of all the injuries and easy every single button. He's pushed as been the right one so far, but the biggest one still hasn't been pushed and he has to do with the right way. Let's go to Jimmy Dix hills. It's happening Jimmy. Hey guys, great job thing about Calloway, where he came back out and said he got some feedback two points on that one. If you're Callaway, you have to realize that you probably this is it. I mean, maybe you make it throughout the year and you're not coming back. I mean you're not gonna you're not gonna last longer than a year. So I mean it's kinda gutless came back out and said, oh, I'm really sorry, this time like he should've told them starting. That's it. You're not going any further than this year. But it also come the problem because any other manager and we all we can all agree. It's going to be a new manager down the road. They see this, and they're saying, why would I ever work for the Mets? Got this guy calling out his guys why would now not only do have an capable manager now. But how will you ever gonna get a capable manager going forward? Yeah. And that's one of the first things I thought about when Mickey went out there that second, let me just clarify something Jimmy. Nobody is calling the dugout. Well, that's the that's the thought that, you know, brody's picking up his phone and calling Mickey in the dugout that is not happening is Brody talking to somebody on the training staff. When it comes to player injuries in game. Yes, I guarantee you the moment that a players injured brody's on the horn, or somebody from brody's offices on horn, with somebody in that training staff saying, okay, what happened? How bad is it because there's two reasons to this one is because I would think that Brody would want to give his opinion, which obviously is doing in two. If somebody is significantly injured, they have to start making preparations for who they bringing in are they going after somebody? Do they need to make a trade somebody going on? Term, I l what is the situation? So you try to get as much information as you possibly can as quickly as you possibly can. But he's not calling the dugout and I did reach out to the Mets this morning and asked for a clarification to make sure we got it. Exactly. Right. And this is what I got back. Brody has never dictated to a coach on an engaging move. If a player is injured or becomes injured dealing with something in game. It's common for GM and others to have conversations with the training staff. That's what I got that. And that's what I think is happened here. So he had a conversation with the training staff. The training staff went to the manager and said, look man, the GM wants out of the game. Don't don't put him back out there or take him out of the game. But the only question I have here, and that makes a hell lot more sense to me than calling down be like have resolve bunt here. But why where's the breakdown in communication between the trainer in the manager in game of Jacob degrom is her? Why does it take the general manager? From home to realize that there's something wrong with the pitcher, or is he overreacting because he just signed the guy to one hundred sixty million dollar deal, whatever it was. And he can't look like more of a fool if this guy ends up getting her. No what I'm saying. Right. And also this story comes from somebody, that's obviously, disgruntled either somebody that was initially fired or in the last couple of weeks. We all know who those guys are or somebody. That is a player that knows what's going on doesn't like what's going on? And they feel bad for Mickey. And they want the fan base and the media to know that there's more meddling going on behind the scenes than than we've in. No, so it came from somebody who's disgruntled and whether or not that let's say it's one of the former pitching coaches, okay? The bullpen coach or Dave island himself that then, you know, it's like is that their perception of how this whole thing went down? Yeah. Are they accurate in their assessment of what happened here? So I believe I. We're characterizing it the right way, that the general manager talks to the training staff. The training staff then talks at the manager. That's what I think. Yeah. I mean it was probably Brody sees something Kohl's down to the trainer. Hey, what's going on with the Graham? Oh, you mentioned a little something hit. But I think he's okay. What are you talking about? Get him out of the game could have been something like that. Right. And then the trainer says, listen, I know we didn't think it was a big deal with Jacob Brody saw something else. He wants them out of the game. And then Mickey takes him out of the game. So we've taken Jacob degrom out of the game because of a hip problem and because of a foot problem. Yeah. I mean, I mean, let's, let's hope it doesn't turn into an arm problem. It's all I could say, but don't don't hip and feet. Don't they turn into armed problems try to overcompensate? I know that's exactly what I said that hip in a foot problem and the foot problem is a recurring thing, that's gone on with didn't sound like a big deal. But, but he has said has gone on before I wonder I wonder when they were sitting down for negotiations was talking about the put problem. I've probably occurring. Let's go soon, Sean, in queens, Alosha on. Tuned, a half months. A little over two and a half months ago to sun was shining, and I called my favorite morning show, and I was excited because my Jeep is packed with Tito's and sausage, and remember your phone call showing I remember and now it's a gloomy day two and a half months later and I'm calling about this crap. Okay. This is what it's like to be a New York thing. But I have to I just give me a second, because I have ADHD double d ten, I'm trying here. But the New York media, and I wanna make one thinks you guys. I don't consider your media. I don't consider Gary Keith and run media, even though I know technically will are I'm talking about the scavengers and parasites that are in the rooms every day, and these guys have never held accountable. Okay. And I know going, even as a kid, I always said, what's to prevent these guys from lying every time because they never give up their sources. And they always say, reliable source. So it's, it's, you know. My point is the frustration of New York media is the reason why we don't get the superstars anymore with the with the social media and all the stuff with these guys playing another states. I it's so frustrating guys because Bouma. And I gotta defend you going back that far if you think it was bad in New York losing on, on the jets back, then, you know, now, can you imagine what these these internet guys and you got these podcasts? Got guys a scavenger is trying to make a buck and all they do nit pick. And you know what I'm glad Mickey mister very low behold. Really glad he turned around and twins. You know, untold amp and I mean, but we don't see here's the problem, no show. It's like this is a guy who showed no fire with his team. You've got guys. Dog, it left and right. And it just oh we've got his back or this guy was exhausted. That's why we took him out because he's run I too much. And then the one time he snapped some dude from Newsday because he said, I'll see you tomorrow like it would have been nice to see that fire in enganed situation where he was trying to motivate, the team not snapping on Tim Healy from Newsday in Kona mother effort. I mean that's the that's the most unprofessional thing in the world. And by the way, like you know, you call them, scavengers and parasites. What are these guys do, what did Tim Healy do don't know? That's the thing. We don't we have. No, I could could have been nothing. And by the way, they keep peppering. Mickey Callaway with the three out rule for Edwin d as I mean, they've asked him the same question for the last three months. And he's answered at the same way hasn't. That's see that's where you're wrong in the beginning. It was it was only the ninth inning. And then they came out after that team meeting. The first team meeting after the Marlins series that where they got swept, and they came out and said, no, we can use them for more than that. And then he was terrible. But then they came back to all we have a plan with him. And it's this and that. So you can't use them for five outs. But you can use them for four and then he goes, maybe. Yeah. So can I say something about just the whole thing in general? Is that every team goes through what I would consider a fluid situation? Things are changing left, and right, all the time from injuries to poor performance to the bed decisions, things change rapidly. And that's why say Brian Cashman deserves every Pat on the back that you can give him if you are Yankee fan because of everything that he has been able to do to keep this team together until the reinforcements came back another all back and look at them. It's ridiculous. So he deserves a lot of credit for the last six weeks prior to the return of a lot of their players. So it's always going to be a fluid situations. Always going to be something going on. And how you handle that. And how you get back to it. So that's why when they said, Edwin d as initially when the season started only three outs only three outs. Only one inning. Okay. Then all of a sudden the bullpen starts shaky right? So now, are you gonna use them more because he's supposedly your stuff at the back end of the bullpen. Yes, we need to and and presents itself. Yeah, we're going to consider it. Okay. So you're considering it now you throw them out there over the last four games by games. He has been horrendous. So the last thing you want to do now is put him back out there in a situation where it's going to be more than three three outs. So it always changes, nothing ever is steadfast or hard rule. I mean things happen all the time that are going to change things. I mean. I say it but you were a part of something this past weekend. Right. So we play against a wounded warriors on Friday night. And I am for people. Watch on CBS sports network. They gave bloomer night jersey. One of the jerseys, they wore and I am I'm wearing it right now. And also, they made custom shirts and Eddie's Zaree's got one for the particular game. And there's the wounded warrior patch right there. So, so yes, we have the, the USA patriots signed bat over here now and it will rest with us every single day that we're on the air. So, so here's the point. I'm making so Friday night. We play. We got a full squad. Everything's great. I saw the greatest catch that I've ever seen in game. It was pretty H O. He went around the pole and I was I've never seen a catch like this. It was ridiculous. It was it was better than the Willie Mays. Catch it was better than any great outfield or anything you get ever imagined BPH made an unbelievable. We were all like a breath. Take. Right. Was it not? So we win the game. All right. So obviously, now the next day we gotta go play over there at ocean bay park and Seaview, right. Yes. So we have a kind of a little bit of a skeleton team, and we have to get some replacements in, I bring in a replacement you bring into replacements and we put him out there, and the always happens when you bring in replacements, they get nervous. They want to do the best that they possibly can because they know they're going to be watched and they're going to be held accountable. Maybe right in the moment, and you guys are used to it. Some of these other guys aren't so my replacement who remain. Nameless goes the third base. I could play third base. Okay. You could play third base. Well, you got to catch the ball if you play third base. And you can't throw it over the first basements head or into the dirt because our first baseman doesn't move quite as well as some other first basement. But he solid. And I'm top of that he pulls a quad. Yes. So, so my point is things are fluid. You gotta you gotta change. Right. So I take the third baseman in middle of the game. And I put them out in right field. Guess what happens? He's laid. Well played well in right field. I take one of your replacement buddies. I put him at third base. How did he play played well? Third base. It again he hits did not of course. But in in pre game warm up practice he looks like Hank Aaron out there put something happens something happens when they get on the field. So even our own team suffers from the fluidity of the lunatics that we have on our roster that either show up or don't show up. I deal with that with my wasp hockey team. Yeah. I got guys playing defense at the wanna play defense. Sure. But to go back there because they think they can play defense because they want to help the team and sometimes it doesn't work out. Right. You know what I mean? I got this is the Mets. It's always fluid, and it's how you act. And how you and how you react to the fluidity and situation failed that the fluidity reaction. Instep Mickey snap after a game. I'm by the way, just so you know, if you haven't heard when you listen to make away, what is he more than anybody else? What is Mickey more than anybody else? I think he's more of a human being than anybody else. He's got feelings. He's not afraid to talk about us feelings. How much he's gonna love you and love his team and loved the fan base. Okay. And he had a and had a bad moment. He had a really bad moment. And it's okay to have a bad moment every now and again, it's okay. You know. You know, it's part of who we are as people, and they should have handled it better afterwards, and it wouldn't have been as big of a deal. But the fact that he went out there. Seventy said, then go out again. And then Vargas didn't answer any questions. They made it worse. We wouldn't have been talking about this today that botched the apologies Someth something about this writer from Newsday that has gotten skin. I don't know what haven't bought him I disagree. I disagree wouldn't know nat- already by now. I don't know. I think it was just wrong wrong time for him. Everybody came to his defense Jeff for us the going to pit five outs. How long has the he's asking? He's ready. I mean just become Jimmy him. And when I feel like it's, it's the right hand. That's what they're trying to get at. I don't know if he can use them when he wants to use them. Well, while that these are why zask in the questions. Holy crap. You know, when we were Friday night, for instance, we're playing with the hard balls with the wounded warriors, right? And I asked are starting third baseman. Would you like the play third base playing against the wounded warriors, and these harder softballs and our third basement said, you know, I don't think I could do it. You don't I appreciated the honesty. I really did. I said, that's, that's making me understand what I need, and I would love to be able to come up there. So I appreciate you being honest with me on Friday night. I didn't wanna get injured using those real hard ball. Right. You had the knee pads shin pads going on and everything. You're like catcher at third base. I saw you in pre-game game not very comfortable trying to get in front of those. You didn't like no I like the regular bowls with some give to the clincher balls bowl. By the way, by the way, the key to beating the wounded warriors is play with a fence. That's three hundred fifty feet away. Yeah. Because if you plan a normal softball field with over got it, they'd hit it all really good. Really, really good. It's really just amazing watching what, what an honor and what a privilege, it was to be with them eats. The morning show with Boomer Esiason in Gregg giannotti boomer and geo one hour. Join an-and and raining. You're going to join us in studio. Got a new Showtime documentary about his life in career coming out on Friday right now. Jerry Recco is in the chair. Jillian it'll be sitting in and he's got an update for us. What's going on, Jerry? Good morning. Greg. Brought to you by Cadillac of Malwa, visit Cadillac of Malwa dot com. Get through the game stuff first Phillies Mets last night. Susan's Bank ballpark. That's trying to come back after blowing that game in Chicago on Sunday and all the post-game shenanigans. But things while they went well for them for a time they did lead six five, it's certainly got away from them quickly. You guys were talking about the makeshift defense in the outfield like Jeff McNeil right at certainly got them here. We want pitch swing on a drive in the air at a right slicing, too. Back to the world. This store is Kingery Sigler at a second job there with a two base. It that went over the glove of Vic deal, the Phillies now have eight to six played at terribly high we WCBS eighty that added onto the lead Phillies wound up beating the Mets thirteen seven snapping their seven game losing streak. Jay Bruce islets four one six with a pinch. It two run Homer. Here's Mickey Callaway after the loss that outfield to get guys in the lineup. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it does. These guys haven't been out there, obviously a ton of time for the most part. They've done a pretty good job. It will couple miscues here. And they're like you said, what we have to live with to score seven runs. Maybe so you know it's part of it. We would just have to pitch better. And speaking of the pitching Stephen match really had nothing again. Why the struggles in Philly? Remember that last time he pitched there. He was pretty bad to my finger on this. It's a tough line up. They got me twice now here and I don't really have an answer for you. There just got just got to be better. Seven runs. Ten hits over just four and a third and. And he understood what was needed is the big series the line of showed up today. They did a great job often did a great job didn't get get my job done for the Phillies. Yeah. They certainly were last night. Who's been struggling at a couple of dolls, but they have their stopper Walker. Lock it tonight on Jake Arrieta. It's even worse when you think of it that way. But yeah. In the laws home runs to what match was talking about the offense from Frazier. Conforto romo's and Dominic Smith Mets now thirty seven and forty two Phillies forty and thirty eight. In terms of what happened in Chicago. The midst did find Mickey Callaway and Jason Vargas for their confrontation with the reporter Brodie van wagon we'll get the first here's I Mickey about the outburst. And I I couldn't hear the question. Listen to it six different times. All I can hear his outburst. And then the reporter kind of trails off Mickey's, obviously talking about what happened though Sunday and I well. Deli. Morton punch reported one time it's just part part of this game. He was just been kind of, like, I don't find that funny, but he's trying to be. I know. That's why played it with the laugh, and I just don't see responding to saw him right answer, and I was like, all right. He's just trying to be funny. You know, he's trying to make light of the situation, Casey Stangl, stab guy will happen back in the day. These things part of the game. You know. Billy Martin punched a report at one time. It's just part of part of this game. Danny Murtaza reporter on fire once. Long time ago. I mean this is just this. History. Make you. Yes. Do you think that going off on the reporter is going to be a watershed moment for your career? You know, I mean these things happen. I mean, I think I think I think Bobby Cox rob the reporters home, once I mean, these things he just walked around in their man trespassing all over the place. I mean these things happen. You know, and I'm sorry, by the way, someone told me to say, I'm sorry. So I'm sorry. I apologize. He says he simply got angry passionate guy about baseball, and I'm a tough competitor. And sometimes, you'll see it with the pyre sometimes we'll see what players. And, and, and the thing is you guys don't need to see it directed towards you guys. But in the meantime, go after self. Right. Bleeper. He did apologize sort of apologized after he didn't really apologize. I get some feedback that, you know, that wanted you to know that in my, my meeting with Tim, I apologize for my reaction. I shouldn't regret it. I regret the, you know the distraction. It's calls to the team. What is it with this friend this? We're gonna nation in regretting. Every time he says that it's really fun. And it just even the nicest, most well-spoken guys get tongue tied when they're speaking in regards to the Mets. I don't. I mean I regret saying you know what I'm saying. I mean I stand by the things that I say, but I, I don't regret. I regret saying in that forum that was not the proper form to say what we have a lot of forums and the Mets. The Mets, those forms, don't seem to work out and they all get a little bit nervous, when they have to kind of discuss the negatives. Here's here's the broad Stor. He find them because this was not acceptable. Of course, it was clear from, from everybody standpoint that the situation was regrettable hopefully standpoint, Mickey and the players and everybody else understand that this, this is this is not the type of behavior that you have when, when you're frustrated forum. Right. What, what we're going to run this like a yacht club. We're going to regret things better than anybody regrets things. We're going to regret this thing all the way to the top, we're going to regret it better than anybody in the NFL east. So come get us because we will be over here. Regretting things better than you. The broad stir also denied reports that he's involved with in game decisions but said, talking with training staff during games normal protocol certainly stemmed from the Jacob degrom game on June first and Zona, he would cli- clarify the conversation about players health. Anything that is health related to, to player status. We do communicate. With that. But as far as performance driven decisions in game. That's, that's Mickey's call. And he says he will not stop talking to trainers continue to do that. We don't make sure that players are you know if the training staff. And the, you know, in the health of the players, the player can't continue, then then that, that communication happens between Chinese definitely just picture Brody pacing around his place with his loafers. No socks with a spicy tuna roll and glasses. Sauvignon Blanc today on the bluetooth in the air. What the hell is going on with his hip out of the game. So can you just put that last part, one more time, Jerry Daikin, you'll have the whole thing. I'm sorry. But listen towards the last part of it, and how he kinda couches how the discussions happen. And this is why I believe that we are accurate assessment of how these discussions have happened with the Mets will continue to do that. We don't make sure the players are, you know, if the training staff and the health of the players, the player can't continue then than that. That, that communication happens between Chinese definitely coaches. All right. So here's the deal. Can't continue now. Jacob rum could continue. It was literally he will he did not want to come off the field, but Brody wanna take any chances. They just give them a big new contract, you know they wanna get him off the field. So an essence, he is telling you that he is discussing this with the training staff who then is going to discuss it with the merger in game that, that's what's happ-. That's how it's happening. So it's not like we've had a couple of calls this morning, Jerry call and say, you know, they're calling into the dugout the not really doing that. They're sending a messenger what they're doing lend into that saying here. We're not allowed to communicate with, with Mickey coaching staff, or the games that we're we're not doing their said it's going through the trainer. So. Yeah. So that's. He he's parsing words they are communicating. They're just don't throw an he was also trying to make it very clear that he's not calling into the dugout to make decisions about the game as opposed to the health of a player. It's sorta like when chernoff yells at Alto, yell at us, if we do something on the air, he doesn't like, right? Sure. Does happen occasionally. Yeah. More than you would think they'll come in and say, I told you guys and Alan are like they're right there. But then he won't come in to talk to kind of appreciate because it's during the show, and we don't wanna hear that during the show before after one in that it doesn't have four or after nothing gets come. Does he come in? Like, like why do you guys or does he like, yes, you guys use yelling? I'd say more one he perceives it as a wine, right? Perceive it as a. Yeah. Yes. I perceive it as he wanted to get it off his chest. But he doesn't want to really make a big deal. Yeah. Okay, never gets. So what do we care? Big time Yankees continue to win the beat up the ball. They were beating up the Blue Jays held on late. But along the way couple of big on the to swung driven that is far. Three run home run to give the Yankees, the lead Hicks bits wonder the Knicks a line drive home run to right. Then the Yankees bring to leave and has John. John on the fan. They also got homered from Giancarlo Stanton. Yankees beat the Blue Jays, ten eight the big seven-run sixth-inning here. DJ lemay. Hugh four four couple of runs. Scored two on double for Luke void. Here's Aaron Boone. That's twenty seven straight games of the homerun from his club now that it's happened with our group. Does it surprise me? No, he says Goodwood from LeMay. Hugh good flat that path through the zone. Good flatbed path through dissolve the bench stroke, nine remember, little black backpack. It almost sounds like that's the song he's singing. They're not bad. Here's Stanton on. Yes. Sarah things coming along. Yeah. Not a big stroke nine fan now not really stroke seven not hear them. Did you hear your call yesterday? My call. Yeah. You were in here, but you were here. I was the morning Brandon. What's up? Good morning, hate, boomer. If you're the number one ranger fan and under number two range of fan. How do we get writing Cowan hat? Helen Hoyt as the next audible Beck's coach pile hall. Buddy. Oh, hey, man. How are you? Hold on, boom. Boomers talk to you. I've been a fan since seventy one. Hey let boomer talk for a minute, boomer shut the F up. Okay. Did that to me today? Thank you. Norps are in control. Good. Well, what else we got the Red Sox beating the White Sox, six to five and Marco Hernandez, infield game, winning RBI single year. The Rockies beat the giants Tuesday dodgers have their winning streak snapped at six lose to the Diamondbacks. Eight five and Wilson trails homers drives three cubs over the Braves eight to three from the NBA, Milwaukee's Janas and denim, Kuko, a league MVP, my boot Yannis out that the Kuku of the year pool rookie of the year. The Knicks were fined fifty thousand dollars by the league violating the media rule for not giving the daily news boy, they really hate them access to their post conference on Friday round here. That's probably so, yes, I was thinking about that is so they hate us to write the garden. So doesn't can't date. You guys mean paying anything pain Haslam saying awesome saying, WFAN? All right. 'cause they're punishing. Well, they would MAG said and then that all of us got wrapped into they like you and Mike, I'm a paying customer. So I, I don't seem to have any problems seem to be able to talk and walk around over there just like Nord. Let me let me rephrase this. Yes. So the garden does it like WFAN Maggie. So. Spacer. She's pregnant. Now, I can't believe that they don't like a pregnant woman. It's a little bit. But let's say we sent Maggie over to cover the Knicks every day, and they wouldn't allow her we could get them fined fifty thousand dollars a day for the entire season when Abby something else because, you know, they wouldn't let her, and they would just be fine, fine, fine, fine, fine. And just be also see, I think they would let her do you think so? Yes, denied the daily news, what the daily news, this one, right? This one time his Frank. I used to work for them. Seriously mate, Frank men. So they're still holding the daily news consist my point about one person and in the whole group gets thrown intimate. Maybe the daily news to shake things up and said mini show there. The knicks. The also don't put a hit out on him. Hire the same guy that went into David tees. Oh my God. Yeah. That would be that would be unbelievable Monique was covering the Knicks nothing could be better than that. That series make that happen. Daily news, please women's World Cup US beat Spain two to one. There you go. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason. Gregg giannotti boomerang geo twenty five minutes from now doing raking Super Bowl, and the schedule to the studio, of course of the New England Patriots as they go after a another Super Bowl this year with Brady and Belle Jack before. It's all over for them at some point in the future, who the hell knows when that is, but it can't last for another ten years, that's for sure. Or maybe it could who knows. But they're going to be favorites again to win the division, probably come out of the AFC, especially with what's going on with the Kansas City Chiefs this off season, even the chiefs have the reigning MVP of the league. A lot has. Changed with that team since last year. So another shot, Julian Edelman is promoting his documentary on Showtime, that ad opportunity to watch, and this is a guy who has is overcome a lot who's a junior. College guy he was a quarterback. You can't state he was drafted in the two hundreds, he got on the field as a punt returner worked, his way up at number. Tune ity to develop a relationship with Tom Brady, and the rest is history with Jillian edleman. So in the guys live the best life possible. Now, you say so that you found the right spot, and he has the right coach and the coach saw something in him that very few people are able to say, and there's an inherent IQ there on the football field that I would literally say at his position, second and none. Yeah. Because the, the amount of plays that he makes under ten yards and the precision that it takes with him and Brady. And I'm sure Josh mcdaniels harping on an everyday in practice every day in the meetings, and they not only have taken it from. The meetings in practice, but they have taking into games and not only taking it. The gains in the biggest games of all. Did you see this videos out there? Cam Newton offering a guy fifteen hundred dollars cash for his first class seat. And the guy turn him down. I did. So this was a story yesterday, Jerry, I didn't end up getting to the they talked about on the warm up show. And now it comes out that the reason why Cam Newton had a coach seat on that flight. Because he missed his original flight reaction first class seats. So he was trying to upgrade via the old fashioned way an offer somebody fifteen hundred dollars. Now the reaction a lot of the reaction that I saw from this. How do you not take the fifteen hundred dollars in cash? And then just go sit back and coach and quite frankly, I'm not taking the K. Where was the plane going to it? I didn't I didn't see that part of it from France to was a nonstop coming back here coming back here in France. Yeah, that's a long time to be on a plane man. You don't understand. Airbags World Cup games. What was he doing who'd Al knows fashion week? So sort of fashion thing, they're going to a con go into that, first class c coming back from France, depending on when the guy bought it or whatever is probably somewhere between thirty five hundred and seven thousand bucks, depending on when he bought it could be. So, you know, do you need a little bit more than fifteen hundred. But, like, not only that, but if you're someone who is paying for a first class international ticket like you don't need the fifteen hundred what you want is the comfort like if you're going out of your way to pay that much to fly. It's because it's important to you the be in first class and someone just rolling up throwing cash edgy. I don't think it was a first class trade. I think it was just one of those bulkhead, you know the front of the coach areas. So it was just more legroom business class in business is doing business business class. Okay. So just a better see an extra day, catch a plane where there is a first class seat available. Yeah. About was he rushing back for OTA. The guy just being nice to the big felon, and giving him his seat and say, no keep the money, give it to cherry. He's not a wounded warrior walking on a plane him. Newton sake could buy the plane. Exactly. I mean what are you talking about? Being a nice guy. You had a shoulder surgery this off season. But I mean it's not like you know he's someone who's in peril fella. He's a good fella. Also old good fellas. Get what they want just because they tossed cash, he's a good weird Goodfellow someone came up to me and say, listen, you know, I would totally give him my if you already money, if you had a better seat than what he had, and you d with because he wanted to wait hold on at you. You were going to sit here. If you told me that you would do it for somebody that was handicapped or wounded warrior, somebody like that. I totally get or just just a returning soldier coming back from Iran, Afghanistan. I get all that fragment woman. Yeah. Yep. Pregnant woman. Been, there's certain things where I would buy that. But if Cam Newton came up to look, I wanna sit in your seat. You say, yes, I can have an autographing. With you. I would not have. He's a good fella. That's the reason you'd give up your seat. It seems like a quirky weird, dude. Not. But that that's not a good enough reason just to give up the seat that you bought. That's better than what he has. He's Cam Newton at maybe he didn't have, but fifteen hundred his pocket, you know, but maybe said, hey, I'll give you five grand for the seat that now talk. Yeah. I mean, that, that would be worth that could give me five grand now assuming that I didn't pay for my seat. Now if I paid for my seat, and you want to buy my seat from me. Then you have to give me the seat cost and then some. Right. I mean it's probably just give me the sea cost. Yeah, it's one of those things too. It's probably. That's what the cash that he had on him. He probably would've offered more, but then you gotta checks and then MOS and everything else, it doesn't want to go, but personal information, basically, fifteen hundred dollars cash or nothing else. I would never done that did never. At that point. If I've got a better seat, and I've got a fly from France back the Charlotte, I'm not going to, I think it was as I think wherever the hell it is even farther. I mean think about it, isn't it? It's farther hits. The debt is. I'm not giving up my better CPR anybody in less situa-. Two different story. But he's gotta pay me at least what I paid for the ticket, and then and up charge if you want my seat isn't that almost like the insulting thing to here? I'll just I could just pay myself into anything like in their part of that. Like like, like you can't just buy me dude. You know what I'm saying? Just because you're flashed around bunch of cash like you buy me how much time boomer Cise depends on how much cash, you wanna be flashing around. Right. Yeah. I mean, and if you need it or not to right. Like if you just if you're someone who doesn't need the cash, you're not like it'd be like, no, I would just say, hey, dude. How about just being on time and get unripe plane right about that. Yeah. About that, about that Cam. How about that? How did you get yourself on time you get on your regional plane in you'll have to get me out of my seat? How about that James and Clin rock? What's going on James? Good morning. Good morning. Hey, so, I was mentioning, hopefully you guys saw the holy moly TV show. It's about miniature golf and they have like. It's competitive, I've not seen this. Oh, it's produced by stuff curry, okay. You know him and it's just a good thing for professional athletes. You know, to get involved with something outside of maybe a sport the Rin on. I wanted to mention it because maybe some other professional athletes can get into stuff, you know, kinda like what boomer did, and it's a fun show. If you haven't seen it, I would definitely check it out. All right. Yeah. Holy moly. On only moly. Yeah. All right. I'm taking a look at it. Now, someone probably paid that guy to make that phone call his ANC thinking. There's no way that someone's got that strong of a holy moly, take and all those details. He's called me for a couple of weeks to benefit all the retired athletes network. Is it on? We're falling right into this guy's trail, right? Yeah. Do you wanna do this? I just like to hear what no I know James as a regular caller to the station. There's no way he's involved in trying to get a mention a real. Yeah, I believe he legitimately is like this is great for athletes. Okay. So it's on ABC is where it's on. Holy moly its premiere last Thursday, miniature golf themed reality TV show of mind numbing inanity Steph curry as a participant mind, numbing inanity. That's what the this is from golf magazine. And there, they are mind, numbing Nandy washing, this their crushing it. They're the summer's here long days. Hot nights, lots of idle hours and healthy brain cells to kill what would we do without network TV? Yeah. Says wait which premiered last Thursday and ABC belching out onto the airwaves, a miniature golf, the reality TV show of mind, numbing inanity. Like countless reality TV shows before holy moly, is structured as a looney competition populated by contestants with near boundless appetite for personal debasement. Jesus all the contestants ex athletes, or is it was the, the previous caller talking about the fact that Steph curry supposedly produced a show many, he put the money behind the show. He didn't like direct the show, wasn't his concept. Right. Whoever this writer is really listen to this line. This is a great line. It's venue is a ten hole. Technicolor miniature golf course that looks like something you might get if Mickey Mouse intern with Tom Faizy. Oh, than sat down at a drafting board while high on troops. Tom facia, I'll who's a course designer. Yes. Crazy. Who's the writer? Josh sins. SE NS. He's probably going to be like twenty seven years old. Right. That's pretty funny because I'm sure his generation hates TV competitors face plant on slides and CRA plunk into pulls a woman gets walloped not once but twice by spinning windmill blade. Imagine the love child of American ninja warrior, and the big break and make it three times more ridiculous than anything you thought possible, and you still haven't arrived in accurate mental picture of just how silly this. Dodge Justice Josh has written for a number of publications. Yeah. Guys pretty good. Yeah. Made me laugh with this review. So you're at both ends of it. You heard this guy call up and saves the greatest thing ever. And then you have heard the other side of it, where it's the most ridiculous thing. So do who do you. Who do you buy, probably this guy, Josh? Yeah. Josh I dunno. Sounds like my type of guy I coming up in fifteen minutes, Julian Edelman will be there or less. Oh, wow. He's going to be here sooner. Oh, look at that usually these guys are late. You know these big. Aw. Big flute in high athletes. He has made it through phase one of the security protocol, okay. Now he's gotta deal with our new elevator Bank. And they might get shot up to seventeen and stuck there. Like I was the other day. God when a mess. It's the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Greg nutty, boomer and geo. Over GIO van thoughts country on CBS sports network. Joining us right now in studio. Three time Super Bowl champion and reigning Super Bowl and the day of the New England Patriots Julian, it'll men who is the subject of a Showtime, sports documentary one hundred percent Julian ETA had an opportunity to watch this last night, and it is really cool. It is not your traditional walk you through documentary. It is awesome. The way this thing was told the story was told and what I thought was really cool was, how it was. You know, your rehab, and your life to stories going on at the same time. And we're being walked through it simultaneously. It is awesome. You have to check it out. It premiers Friday, June twenty eighth on Showtime. Jillian, thanks for being here. How are you doing logos? Thanks for having me. So the story couldn't have ended any better. So we're seeing you going through all these things the injury, the suspension. Coming back your darkest times, but in the end, it's more than storybook. You're the Super Bowl MVP your hoisting another Lombardi trophy, your third as a member of the patriots. I mean this story wrote itself. It's incredible. You know we definitely looked out with, with how a lot of things worked itself out. But, you know, the story kind of is a microcosm of my life, you know, he's having to battle, you never been the number one guy never been number one draft pick, the guy that everyone's looking at this, that having to go the long road dealing with some adversity and kinda just. Battle in yourself mentally, because that's, that's some of the hardest stuff when you're hurt his Nath leat and just putting one day in front of another or in about what you control and going out and trying to put out your best in scene, where the chips fall. And in the, you know, I've been fortunate enough and blessed enough that when I've done that, you know, things have gone. Well, you know, the thing is that you care about it. You care about your, your career you care about playing care about being on the field, your plan for a maniac that you always have to prove yourself every single day in the practice field, the meeting rooms and all that other stuff. I think back to when you and I were last together, it was the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, and you and I made an appearance together and everybody said, why is he so miserable? You would be miserable, too, if your team's getting ready to play for the Super Bowl and you're dealing with Andrea and trying to get through it, and how lonely you are now. I haven't seen this yet but I have read about it in GIO was tell me a little bit about it. How you talk about getting injured and how lonely it felt and. How you know distance from the team you felt and maybe that's why that night in Minneapolis other than it being thirty below zero. A little bit miserable. I don't know if I was miserable, but you're definitely. You're in that sense of lonely like you said are acted. You're definitely distracted. Because, you know you have so much on your mind your team's about to play in the game that you love like I've played in that game. And you know the magnitude of that game, and you're sitting in your watching, and you didn't get to participate this year, a whole year out of football. And then you in the other side you have how dealing with this injury. You know, like are about six five and a half months out. They feels. All right. Doesn't feel great. You know, you're just you're battling those types of things. Especially when you're heard as Nathlie it was. You know, it also lead you into decision making sometimes. And sometimes you make bad decisions. Yeah. And you felt like what it was like to make a bad decision and your dad, actually was as I understand a very disappointed with some of the decisions you made to get yourself back on the field. Well, yeah he. You know what happened with the spend my father, and I kinda when separate ways for for two and a half months because of. You know, legally all this stuff that we're dealing with, and this and that and he he didn't he he's got that old school mentality. And he didn't realize all the pieces to the puzzle and we didn't talk and you know, we, we actually captured that in this documentary were, you know, you see the -bility to, you know, the athletes life, not just from sports world. But how they deal with their family, their friends, their surroundings, the expectations the all those types of things that every person deals with in life pressure anxiety to things that could lead to bad things. But that's what you said you. That was that was the best part of the best part honest. And also, you guys coming together afterwards, so your father coaches you when you're younger and the unconventional way of coaching throw in towels in your face just making uncomfortable. And all these things that don't make any sense. But then when you're not allowed to be with the team after. For this time where you guys are apart. You come back together, and he can do the same things that he did when he was coaching you as a kid, and then to see you, too, that shot of U2. standing next to each other out on the practice field and him just smiling year to year because it gets to coach again everyone through the adversity. I mean that that gave me chill. So mean to see your family life. I mean, I know yes, the guys kicking the jets ass all the time. Right, and winning Super Bowl and BP's. But now I know you through your your father and your brother and your sister, and, and that must have been really fulfilling for you to watch that on film, your relationship progress with your father. You know. I was talking with boomer earlier that sometimes in life, you have so much on your plate that you don't get to appreciate certain things as much as you, you wish you, you would have, you know, in hindsight and through this process of making this, and you're sick of watching it. But like the first few times of going through it and seeing it, you know, you've already moved on from it, and you're already thinking about next year, and you already have, you know what your you wanna do better in this that and the other? So you don't always get to remember that watching it, it was kind of refreshing to see that, and, and, and, you know, I wouldn't be where I'm out without my father and the support of my family. And you know, it was it was it was a cool way to see that. And, and really appreciate that more IBA worry about, what coach Bela check would have thought about you doing something like this. During the did you go run a by them? You know, I. I didn't necessarily run it by them. But I, I know coaches rules and what he. I appreciated his boundaries through this whole thing. I didn't wanna I didn't do anything to jeopardize the team in any kind of way. I, I don't think you know, he's got a standard of what he thinks we should be doing in certain things with the media, and I feel like I tried to respect those two best my billion and not be distraction with with certain things. I love you're young. You're great player Super Bowl. You're popular view. You're out there on the scene if you will, when you're out there, people write about you, and everything else. So you get what's going on in the world. You get the Twitter's fear, you get the Instagram and all that other stuff. I are you as a maze, as I am that seems like nobody within the patriots organization ever violates those rules as opposed to other organizations were guys are out there like you know, let's say in Tonio Brown, let's say oh Beckham junior guys are always out there in the social media world yet, very rare. Is there a patriot player ever crossing that line? I mean, I think there's. There's clear expectations on how to handle those things, and our, our staff, with media, and in our coaches, explain those things thoroughly. So, you know, and you also learn from the older guys and what you can and can't do, and you kinda respected in new use social media to kind of shape, your personality completely away from football, nothing to really do with football scheme to schedule this, that and the other, you know. So I had a unique situation. I wasn't with the team. Yeah. You know, so there's a couple of loopholes air loopholes. One other part of, of this whole thing. And I'm sure he's in the in the documentary GIO mentioned it to me, the Alex Guerrero, angle here, and the controversy around him and everything else, and what has gone on there. Is it is a fair controversy surrounding him or is it? Or do you think it's I think I think it's a little blown out of proportion. I think it's unfair. You know, I think it's just the media trying to get a story with with whatever's going on between everything that goes on with everyone's speculations. You know, I don't think there is any controversy. I love Alex, he you know, I still work with him. He's got some of the best soft tissue techniques that I've ever had. And, you know, I believe in a lot of lot of what he's about and his system, you know, in his method of training and all that stuff is incorporated, with other training. So, you know, I don't think there's anything wrong with how we incorporated in the dock or I think I think those allegations of controversy are kinda ridiculous and the organization and. Him now. Everything's okay. There's not any real rift between Bella check and Guerrero and him being allowed to be are around anymore because that seemed like a big, big deal last year the year before you'd have to ask coach or Alex on that I see them here and there and, you know, I, I use them for what I need to use them with and, and his muscle coaches and his massage techniques and all that stuff. So, you know, I think they do wonderful job of what they do. And you know, it's, it's nice, you know how much like this he cost because it's not cheap. Right now. We played softball over the weekend on, you know, he pulled the quad I had a third baseman pull a hamstring. I got I got a third baseman in their, my producer doesn't want to the hard ball. Out on the softball for God's sake. I mean he's got Mr. Megan's, right? Yeah. It's a pull muscle at you're probably hydrated, right? You know, between you and Brady and ballot check, everybody's all in. I get it, you know, and which is great and it's really admirable to watch from from a far, but I actually had a guy my softball team this weekend. Basically say one of his teammates. I think I've lost the edge. I think I've lost the competitiveness that I once had my life. Yeah. That would be me. Oh, standing by that. Yes. I mean I give him some advice how to get the edge back. I don't want it back. You could save your words. I don't want. I'm not like you guys anymore. Here's the thing, see, you know, because you guys are professional athletes. Right. You can't make a professional athlete mentality out of a guy like mitt you can't do it. I played in high school. I'm only how many pounds of you lost. I lost sixty pounds. Packed and I'm still throwing the ball away. I'm done it does nothing. That can save me. It's like a pitcher either got the stuff or at all. Or you don't have the movement, bro. You know what is Julian Adeline is my witness, I am retiring than the team playing. I will be every game I will be there for the brand I will sign autographed take the pictures. I'm not playing anymore. Liveable. I love softball. Yeah. Shame. It is what happens when you're playing with. You know what that means? I, I kind of put it in non athletic regular exactly what I have any basically admitted on the bench on Saturday. Yes. I'm standing places fire island. Have you ever been have never been should go? But anyway, all places fire on. He says, I've lost my competitive spirits done. It's over could you imagine going to coach and saying that I don't think I'd be there, probably be your last conversation crybaby move on. Yeah. Well, it's different with the patriots and your softball team. But. As much as the athletes are different. This one part of the documentary talk about you get you get drafted. Right. And you're waiting for a phone call from from Tom Brady to work out, because you're out in California, and he's thinking Tom's gonna come out. He's going to call me at some point, so you don't hear from you don't hear from and finally on a Saturday morning, you get the phone call, and he says, hey, if you wanna meet me over here in a couple of hours, we'll go throw get some extra working, and you said you were blacked out from the night before drink. I wasn't true store. You know, you're young, you're twenty two twenty three years old in the off season. I don't necessarily know if I was blacked out, but it was kind of more of a joke, but to kinda show like I mean, bro. It's Saturday doing. Yeah. But, you know that Saturday turned into Super Bowl MVP, that's that Saturday turned into the start of, you know, you know, relationship that is, you know, that I cherish, and I think my veil ability to, to, to Tommy and doing whatever it took to get some time with him and him accepting me because I mean at the skies of three times winning champion this slap sloppy. A- second-year receiver exactly what you're, so, you know, I it was it was the beginning of something that I truly cherish and. It was funny. It was just funny because he called me like one time that year. Yeah. And then I, I moved out the next year. I moved to I've never really been to LA. I'm northern California kid I went to Disneyland when I was like twelve but other than that, you know, I moved completely down there started like a little life. And then, you know, the next year he called me a couple more times than by the year after that we were going three or four times a week. And you know then we started having lunch and he'd invited to the house. And, and that's, that's when we became a. Yeah. But now you guys like so insane. Co talked to GO here about the whole precision aspect your offense and everything else like that. And how you know I actually play with the guy your size then was wink. We're bet a rookie and Wayne was so dedicated into proving probably had the same attributes that you had where he just wanted to prove to everybody that he belonged and he was tough. I don't necessarily know that we had an offense coordinator, quite like you have in Josh, but I can't imagine the amount of time and effort goes into as precise as you are. And can you give are just eliminate the people, what must be like on a practice field in the meeting rooms with these guys, will, you know, in the meeting rooms. Our coaches, do phenomenal job of just delivering us information, you know, tendencies statistics and, and being able to teach them. And, and. Show them us. And then being able to, you know schedule out for like the newer type kid. I mean, it would they do so well as they evolve how they coach to the type players that we come across, because it's, it's, it's changed in my eleven years on how to do things, you know with, with the newer college and, and offenses and all this, and this is how they're starting to teach it in college. You know, we've kind of that way. And I think our coaches doing a believable job doing that being able to deliver the information and then use our strengths and, you know, I think that's, that's a huge part of lot what we do. And then practice is are many games. I mean everything's it's crazy. Everything's filmed like calisthenics drills so you can go. And you can actually watch how you're moving this that and the other and they just so critical in detail. Ary. Wanted in. It's, it's high pressure every day, like we don't go out there to Lofa practice. We harp that practice execution becomes game reality. So practice puts everything's about practice the weight room. I everything like those are all walk-throughs installation. Those are all cute and everything. But it all comes down to how do we practice so we can sleep at night on Friday? So we're talking about practice about practice. Right. We're talking about practice. That's the way it should be. You see what I'm saying? I hear you. Gronk officially done. He's not gonna burst through an appreciation game at a nowhere. Get dropped out of a helicopter. And then all of a sudden here he is. He's back. He couldn't stay away. I don't know. I don't think so. You know, but who knows my guy he's fuller. He's full full surprises. But, you know, if he does that'd be awesome. If he doesn't. I understand. I mean he he's played unbelievable career and I'm excited for him his next chapter in life. Whether it's whatever it is he but he's definitely going to be missed, you know, he's he was he was not just his athletic ability in what he does on the field, but how he is in the locker room. You know, I played nine years with the guy and, or ten years and to see him every day, and how he was as professional, you know, you never really had a bad day. Gronk always use always wrong. And you when you play a long time with someone you know, in and out, and he's just such a good human being great due to be around, like a big old teddy bear in those are the things you're gonna miss the most. Because you go into you know week four thirteen twelve it's been a grind. You're banged up. It's a long. We just had a long flight. We have short week and you go into the office. You know, sometimes it's not easy to have a great addict. You know what I mean? Look at groggy rocks over there and his locker room. Naked smiling. Yeah. That's just that's just gronk. And those are the things you're gonna miss. And obviously you're gonna miss his attributes absolutely out quickly. I do think you think I'm just trying to think who is Tom Brady, just thrown to the wide receiver from Weill, Gordon. You think he'll be back? I don't know. I, I mean, I've asked everyone and their mother are we getting this? Do we know any information? Do we know anything and I, I don't think anyone knows anything about that. You know, I can tell you. I hope he comes back as a teammate. I like him as a team and I can hope he can he can he can improve himself. You know not just in football with, with what's going on football. But that's like this is a life issue. And, you know, I'm pulling for him, you know, and, and if he ever needs anything, I've, let him know you can come to me, and, you know, I it's. It's it's, it's just a weird situation and you're pulling for guy like that because he's a great teammate works hard guys a baller. You know. But sometimes there's, there's other things in life that you have to deal with all these guys in the documentary, make cameos your friends like snoop Dogg. Dion Sanders, Michael Strahan. Mark walberg. Erin Andrews, a million cameos in this thing they all friendly with you. We're all pretty free. You know, I've, I've got to meet some cool people and b become friends with some of them in, and I could call all these people, my friends, you know, they've all helped me out with this, and have have helped me been in my corner, just like you know, I've done a lot of stuff with them. And, you know, they're just they're all pretty great people that, that I've had in here in getting Nome and learn. Learn OMB, and learn from them on a bunch of everything life matters. And. And it's just been it's been pretty cool. Experience in, you know, you pinch yourself sometimes under what, what's next in this world? I mean, is this what you're, you're setting yourself up for, or, you know, we'll we you know, my production company that I started with my partner, soft coast productions. You know this was our big launch to to the production company. I mean we did a little thing back with when me and Danny went to Mexico partner with NFL films. We, we co produced a documentary of us going over there and promoting the game of Mexico, but this was kind of our launched, or single thing in our partnership with Showtime has been unbelievable. And, you know, we definitely have some other things that we want to go out there and we have some stuff in the making, so you know, I'm I'm excited for that. But ultimately, you know, I leave that a lot of that too soft and my boy collar, he directed the film. And, you know, my mind still. On football better pay. Well, so it's, it's, it's right now is, is fun and games and promoting this, this is an awesome opportunity. But, you know, I gotta keep my mind. I gotta keep my mind. Let me tell you, I have added to my bucket list, going to the Kentucky Derby with you because there doesn't seem like a more fun thing on the planet to be doing. Then go into the Kentucky Derby with you. You have a blast that day, you know, it's after the season obviously is not a lot going on there. You got the suits. You got the mint juleps and everything. Is that like the best day of the year for you? It's a fun year to fund. It's a fun day. Feels like you're sometimes, but, you know. I, we have a group of guys that, that have gone, and it started with the older patriots, and we got some kind of the newer patriots. And some of the old like different team patriots. And you know Brady's been doing that for a while, and may weather pack Yale fight with them. We did that. That was go go from the Kentucky Derby to that, right? Yeah. That was that was pretty pretty cool that Tommy to cheeseburger, or anything during that trip or anything or not maybe couple chicken wings sucker for chicken wings. That's the thing that will get you hear that. The jets keeps sending wings. He's still playing at this age. You know, more intimately than anybody else. I mean you out and everything. I mean if it was a narped. Maybe yes, but, you know, knowing the guy and seen what he puts into this game, and what he puts into his craft and what he and how he takes care of his body. And, and how everything is predicated around football and his family. I mean it doesn't surprise me this documentary is awesome. You gotta check it out at premiers Friday, June twenty eighth on Showtime one hundred percent Julian Ataman, and it's got cameos from just about everybody in there. It's great underdog story. And, you know, the ending already ends in the Super Bowl championship, and a Super Bowl MVP, but watching you go through that is fascinating and all the people that it took to get you to where you are, especially you so congratulations on documentary, the Super Bowl and the championship and all this great stuff that you have going on and continued success. Appreciate it goes join join Ataman on the fan. It's the morning show with. Boomer Esiason and Gregg giannotti boomer and geo.

I don't know man. You gotta respect that, dude. Do something about it gotta respect that say, you know, zero. All right. Jerry is here with his update. What's going on Jerry morning? We're brought to you by the teen auto group test drive new twenty nineteen in fifty sixty at eighteen Infinity in Edison, and Bridgewater. We've started all morning with the Mets and understandably. So how about we give you some positive stuff. Finally, that would be the Yankees who hit the fifty win Mark last night and a victory over the Blue Jays. The third base it over. Bill corner. Extra-base Gardiner scored becomes the Mayhew. He's rounding third LeMay who will score. Two run double up the bad of Luke Boyd. The Yankees have broken the game open. They have taken a seven two lead. John sterling the audience winning ten eight because you'd get a monster home run from Giancarlo Stanton, three run shot is. I also Aaron Hicks. Yes. Him Aaron Hickson through and home are earlier in the game in the eighties now fifty and twenty eight with the win again. All good. See Sobat the a six innings for the victory. He says he was improving as the game continues. A lot better still struggled after like until about the third or fourth but the commanders has got better as a game. When we mentioned the home runs from Stanton and Hicks Yankees. Now they record tying twenty seven game. Home run streak is they've just played splendid baseball the Mets. They did not play splendid baseball. They made a mess of things at times, took the lead fell behind and one the losing along the way it's way too high chopper back towards the that's to get it fires high. First off the hit. Joe's through those. The runners up Hernandez goes to third way goes to second the bits grow around Phillies, take a three two. That was early in the game, a lot happened in between, but in the end thirteen seven Phillies win. They snapped a seven game losing streak. Jay Bruce Homer than this game. Bryce Harper had a couple of RBI, double Scott Kingery. Good, gene cigar. Good in the loss. Home runs for Rama's and Smith. Conforto and Frazier, not good with Stephen mats, and for some reason she's not pitching well away from city. Feel feel pretty good at home. And then on the road of theft of Thomas starting to bullpen today and not really sure it comes down to execute and pitches and he's not executing the pitches right now. You guys are talking about Robbie. No. He was asked about canot was Maki Calloway again last night. He says he is seeing signs of life. Take it for what it's worth results in the basis haven't come yet. But again, like I said this day, I think he's squaring, the ball up more and more. You're not gonna squared up every time that just hitting goes with the ones he square off. He's gonna hit and right at people right now you know what though he. Has no choice. They're telling him, you have the plan. They're saying he's got about third in the lineup. He's our guy. He's our big offseason acquisition. He's a former all star. He's a guy that supposedly, you know, one of the best hitters at his position of all time, wa blah, blah, blah, blah. Plus, we brought him here is a big trade. So he's gotta play. Not the alternative would be the play Jeff McNeil and sit him. Correct. But they're not going to do that their they wanna have both of them in the lineup when when, you know, the, the analytic say that they should be in a lineup and it's unfortunate because I think that there's a lot of heavy lifting. It goes on a round Robin, Keno, now from the just just the the impact in the locker room. You know, it's just the, the whole thing's negative around, I would think the analytics say he should not be in the lineup. You blow. The one big analytic is twenty five and that's twenty five million. The money, right? And general manager trade for him. Yeah. Exactly. And it's just it's amazing that the biggest obstacle Brodie van wagon to build a better roster is a contract that he negotiated. It's true. He brought here on the other side as an agent, and then he traded for thirty seven and forty two with the laws, you got Walker. Lockett Jake Arrieta going later tonight. And then just quickly on the whole confrontation stuff in Chicago with what's his name? Mickey callaway. And the reporter, of course, here was here was making this was his first time, addressing it from Sunday, get something that happened. You live with it. I got to talk to Tim personally, were find him as Tim Healy, the reporter, do you want to apologize publicly said, I can I can control my reactions better. Absolutely. And then about an hour before the game. He called the reporters back into his office feedback, that, you know, that wanted you to know that in my, my meeting with Tim, I apologize for my reaction. I shouldn't regret it. I regret the, you know, the distractions calls to the teen van wagon who spoke a couple of times too, because that's what we do. Now he talked about how they find Calloway and Vargas. But then he also had a talk to them again. Because then the story came out that, you know, he's doing things from his office to the team, blah, blah, blah with the dugout. So what about reports that you're making calls during the game? You don't get involved in game strategy with Mickey contact him in any way. No no in game decisions ever ever. Call down from the dugout when he did say was he does talk to the trainers when a player gets injured and on June first Jacob degrom got injured or had the cramp in Arizona came out of the game. And it certainly seems like decision in game was made somebody above the manager, which would obviously lead, you to believe that it was the general manager, who had discussions during the game with the trainers, and the trainers relaid those discussions to the manager, who then relaid his decision to the to the player a player was passed. Right. And Brody was not being I guess he wasn't denying totally apologetic for. And he's gonna keep doing it. Right. Exactly. When it comes to when it comes to injuries he is going to stay in contact with trainers. We have Jacob degrom who's now been shorted to stores, one because of a foot injury, the other one because of a hip injury right in the hip one, if I don't remember this. I remember it was. No, no, no. I know. But they were winning at the time in the bullpen blamed. Yeah. When he came out. Arizona's if this team's bullpen is at five hundred we have they blown only half of the CS that they blown in this team would be in wildcard contingent. Right. And might even be in the spot, but they're not. That's where they are. A Red Sox beat the White Sox. Six to five. You the cubs over the Braves eight three Diamondbacks down, the dodgers, eight five, snapping their six game winning streak from the NBA, Mike boot and holes or coach of the year. Yacht us and said, I'm Kupa league MVP Luca Danni named rookie of the year. What else what else what else blazers trade, Evan turn it to the hawks for Ken bays more and the US beat Spain at the World Cup women's World Cup two one, they'll play France Friday afternoon. Oh, I thought it was today. Wants to Connecticut. Yes, it looks like you might end up back in the. What happened to their football program? Do they go in days? See from where I heard what's that? They stay in. You're gonna stay. They'll, they'll be in the big east and everything. But football, okay, it's confusing, but the right move their basketball program because they got lost over there in the American eats the morning show with Boomer Esiason and Greg nutty, boomer and geo. It's been another Medicare morning as thought that it would be over, if they just stood up there. They meaning Mickey Callaway Jason Vargas, and said boy that was bad. That was regrettable. And it's not gonna happen again. I'm sorry. We've talked to the parties involved now ready to play baseball. But no, it's not the way it went Jason Vargas made some weird statement about. Yeah. This stinks. It's a distraction. Got some baseball to play. And thank you guys for being here. And we'll talk to you after the game and then walked away with no questions then. Mickey Callaway came out and said, well, I mean, Billy Martin punched gone face. Once he was a reporter, he and then walked away, and then I had to come out again and say that he apologized, so that's how we are that was. And then on top of that, you got the Brodie van wagon store. Ori- about him calling trainers. And the trainers having to tell me Coweta take Jacob degrom out of the game. Who that came from the hell knows, could be somebody got fire from the Mets or a guy was on the team now who was so frustrated with brody's over fishing nature that he wants to get these stories out there to protect Mickey Callaway but it's a mess again and they lose again last night to get their season low again of five games under five hundred against Phillies team that hadn't won in a week. So that your met synopsis of the day, and you just hope somehow someway, it gets better, how I don't know because this bullpen, I don't allow it does get any better. I don't know how it gets better without doing complete overhaul including the highest Paik is in there like Jerry's familiar and you know that's not happening. So this is what you got is day in day out. Maybe some good rotation. Rabies some good starts by the starters. Maybe some bad ones, like Steven Matt, but they'll blow the game of actually they got a decent star from ticket, but Rahm. Then Stephen mask him out and just. Had another really bad day in Philadelphia. I don't know what to tell you. Then you're always good as your next as starting pitcher. And that's the adage, the old adage in baseball. And if you're pitcher Stephen mats, and you've got gotta get better from him. You just do. I mean, there's just no two ways about it may need to look after what happened in Chicago. They needed the win yesterday. And then obviously, yes it was another fiasco. And then comes the story of Brody micromanaging from home when they're on the road. And you know that's coming from a disgruntled employees. He could take that for what it's worth, because you never know how it actually all went down. But that's the perception that somebody who worked underneath you has. It's not a good perception, have no absolutely the best. The best thing. You know how many meetings have they had now? He's like. He's like they've had like sixteen years in the last three weeks. So they do a lot of talking a lot of team meetings. And it's worked a couple of times a couple of times out of team, and they come out and played well the same thing was going to happen yesterday by they jumped out to, to nothing lead. But that was a surrender all those Pete Alonzo's having an unbelievable rookie year. We actually potentially have the NL rookie of the year sauce. I guys in makes me makes me mad that he didn't come up at the end of last year when he should have come up at the end of last year. But now he's here. And he's having an unbelievable season. And it's the season behold, something that we should all enjoy set the record for home runs runs already July ready. It's crazy. And you think about the mental lead the league in wasting great seasons last year. They had Jacob degrom put together the best season. You've seen a, a Mets pitcher have since doc Gooden in the eighties. And that was completely wasted with that horrendous season. And now you got Pete Alonzo season on the verge of being wasted. You can't say it's completely wasted yet, but five. Games under five hundred and this team. Spiraling downward probably will be wasted. Let's go to Peter in Wisconsin. Peter, what's happening brother? Hey, Wilbur doing good. I guys play softball. I it was out there. That's a, that's a great thing. I'm love hearing about it. But anyhow, the one thing criticize her Chris catcher, the, you're so high on the on the Yankees getting manager. But you know I it makes my teeth grind everytime, you bring it up because, you know, Christian yelich was available at the same time when it's all went down. And, you know, he, he spent two hundred million dollars more than he probably would have had to yet five to a player sitting there silver slugger winter and you had an injury prone. John collars, or the like that he. Giancarl and, and, and you know that, that one trade has caused the Yankees maybe two World Series in it. You know, they don't wanna go over their budget. They don't have they can't go out and get a stud pitcher because of that. And you got to injury prone outfielder sitting out there with judge and and Stanton. And, you know, it's, it's the money is overspent on him, and he had yellow just. It's going to be, so that's gonna affect them years down the road. It's not, you know, just Fisher great looking when you Peter, we'll see what happens by the end of this. You could cost him to World Series. Gotta Burt virtually has an star at every single position. He brings in LeMay. You analysis Stanton. I don't know if you've seen this Peter last three or four games is hitting the ball harder than anybody else in major league baseball. Judge judge will be fine eventually his time it will come back and he'll be fine. But with the mixing and matching and everything that Brian Cashman has had to do to keep this team float is what I'm talking about. And then the, you know all these guys are returning now he's got a lot of different. He's got so much depth in his organization. It's ridiculous. If there's one criticism as he hasn't pressed the right button at the trade deadline with a starting pitcher that has put him over the edge whereas competitors have the last two years. And the competitors that have beat them in the playoffs. Inver lander. And it was Nathan evolved in back to back years about the area, traded Miller and Chapman away and for Chapman, he got gleyber Torres rack next year. I know I mean so you could sit here and tell me that Brian Cashman doesn't know what he's doing. He knows what he's doing. No does he know what he's doing? But you have to understand as a Brody VIN wagon in his finding out right now. And Mickey Callaway finding out right now. He decided not to bring Joe Girardi back and he rolled a dice with Aaron Boone that, that in itself is a is taking a chance. Okay. And then he brings in glacier, tours. He has an hor was not even here anymore, heart, Severino and hormone who are not here. They're hurt is got judge Stanton Hicks who signed an extension a reasonable extension. Didi gregorius comes back after being hurt and moving towards back the second base, and then take them may use been unbelievable. As a free agent. Maybe one of the it might be one of the best free agent. Signings Yankees have ever had. Point depends out the season ends up his point well up to this point. Sure. But I mean, if championship and he keeps hitting like this was every team would scream to have a DJ LeMay. You plan for them. Why? Because the numbers are evident he can play three different positions in the in the field. And he is a money hitter when guys on base and exactly what the Yankees felt like they needed going into the offseason from last year. They needed more contact hitters and they figured that, probably into our tours would get better and better, pit selection, better hitters and things of that nature. But why not go out and Etta guy, like the we may you when he was signed, it was like, oh, well, they signed, Jalen, where's he going to play? Thank god. Thank god. He's here. That was the, you know, well, the film round in the infield all sorts of different places. You know, he'll get his at bats. But I mean it is incredible what he's been. He's been there MVP. I don't. So far without a doubt. I r- east meadow. What's going on IRA? Come on the morning show. Oh, well. A few points. First of all, they have to seventy nine games the Mets last year with thirty two and forty seven and this year thirty seven and forty two not much of a difference now. Okay. This the second point I wanted to make is that the experiment is over. It's time to get some people that know what baseball's all about you. Gotta do what the island is did. I mean they brought in lieu, and they brought in a coach, that's a winning coach that knows how to do things, and it's time that the Mets. Davis and my last point, I have met Tim, and he's great guy you met him. He'll you're talking about. Yes. Yeah. All right. Right guy. And I can't see him you know, do anything. Interviewing you every day in the locker room after losses. That's, that's the other brody's not getting fired after a year. He's not. He's just not. That's not gonna happen. I would be that'd be the shocker of all shockers after you know, he's hired a pitching strategists. We have all sorts of outside of visors, visor special advisers pitching strategists. We got new pitching. We got a million things going on here sleep unwind from all of that after six months. Yeah, I wonder what the sleep consultant had to say about this whole meltdown in the in the club house in Chicago. You know, we've got to sleep insult, Luke. Luke. It's been spring training would I need to sleep insul-? Yes. I don't know if they consult us on changing our hours. But yes. Definitely we could use one. Let's go to Brian in Manhattan. What's going on Brian, what's going on in that white Matt Ryan who said I got one for geo and I got one for geo. You know, I actually like you even it's not. And it's not because you Attala it's because you're actually a good guy. You're actually funny. You seem like a good guy. I hope you are. You know, but it you see, like a really good guy. I actually like you and your impression I never listened that more on at the GM of the Mets, ROY magazine. Yes. I listened to him yesterday. I if like I was listening to you. Spot on. I mean it was it was really good and Bouma. I like as you one quest. Yes, when you're sitting next to like a Super Bowl MVP a Super Bowl three times to win visit drive, you crazy like the note that you like you only got because Bo Jackson got hurt and I only reason why you actually got the Super Bowl. Does that bother? You Brian's the year that Bo Jackson got hurt. They actually beat us in the playoff so that wasn't the year. We went to the Super Bowl domino. We lost. We lost out. You got you gotta get it right. They're going to try to insult me at least accurate at least be accurate. Please. Right. You try to just you piss everybody off. That's what that's all he wants to do. So he just he pissed off his banned from that show. Now he gave me a compliment today, but in other times, he's talked about me, like all the time at the weight and clothes and everything else. He's funny. He is funny. He was our moment of the day. I don't. But now he's coming after you for God knows what race just be accurate. You know, just be, you know, Bo Jackson. Yes. Got hurt in our playoff game when we played out in the LA Coliseum the LA raiders, they had all their celebrities on the sideline. I had Ray combs. Right. That was it. We only had one celebrity and that was it. Okay. So I mean like in that game unfortunately Jackson hurt. His hip, Kevin Walker. Our linebacker tackled him actually right in front of me on the sideline and you could hear a little pop like a little boy. And here's one of the greatest athletes of our generation of careers over from that point on and but they'd be the second but so not lead into the loss of the Super Bowl. All right. It is boomer and geo on CBS sports network. Eats. The morning show with Boomer Esiason and Greg nutty, boomerang geo got a question for you guys, so. Yeah. Who dot com did a ranking of football fan bases yet. Yeah. Yahu Yahoo Yahoo. You say who I who I say, so I call it to, to. So they rated the fan bases the football fan bases on three different criteria. One would be really financial equity of the fans the social media equity of the fans and then the. The road presence of the fan base when a team is playing on the road. What about meathead equities that now there's no meat had equity just those three things. All right. So number one, obviously is your beloved Dallas Cowboys. Right. Right. So where do you think the giants and the jets rank on the list of thirty two teams when it comes to fan bases? I was to be, I would say it sounds really engaged fan base. I would say right in the middle. I would say between thirteen seventeen for both of them they right in every. Okay jail. I think that the giants going to be higher than the jets. I think the giants are going to be in the top five and I think that the jets are going to be about fifteen. The giants are number four overall with their fan base, and the Fens getting involved. And of course, the oldest team in a league or one of the oldest teams in the league. Right. And then you also have the New York Jets who have a miserable fan base, it seems like most of the time. If I go by the fan fans around here at the fan they ranked twentieth into team. Wow. Who's last the Jaguars the last the team is titans. The Rams ram interesting titans are second last. But the thirty first ranked team is shocking to me on this shot, oftens nano 'cause I think of this team that's number thirty one on this list as a team whose fan base is really in. Involved. Because when you watch their greater v when you watch their games on TV in their home building, you see nothing but everybody wearing their culture. Yes. Really? Interesting. I wouldn't have thought that, but maybe the equity is off the Kansas City. They don't travel. Well, that's probably the key. Yeah. That is a big part of Jerry's back. He's got an update for the fact that Al dukes last night made a guest appearance and my literally tournament baseball game. I know you're trying to get them to go. I just asked him since it was right around the corner from his house. He stayed for the entire game about the weeknight, one of the game at seven oh five. Okay. Wow. Did you enjoy yourself? Did I was very impressed. Normally when you see nine year old kids play. They're terrible growl at the third base doesn't get fielded gets thrown over the first baseman to these kids were on point one reflection of the Cote. Yeah. One nothing pitcher's duel. Wow. That's a reflection of the coach keeping things tight boys. Jerry's son up something that I that I could not relate to a bottom of the, the six, they only play six innings. They're down by a run. His kid wanted to bat like me. When I was that old. That'd be like IB counting head of being. Okay. These two guys get out. It's not up to thank goodness now. Yes. Yeah. I think there's something to be said about you taking yourself out of the play last week against the wounded ward. Yeah, they were playing with the legal balls, and I appreciate they also didn't have legs and arms and some cases. I mean, but I do appreciate your honesty in some cases like re Bruce shin, right? I don't think I don't really need to be out there for this one, especially after it took four hours to get out there. My legs are already weak field change, and everything else. You know what I'm saying? This is pussy feathers, steam was coming. I know I was thinking about this. I don't know. I don't know about how you guys I felt a little weird about this. That was great that they got a field. Yeah. Hell of a job to get ready. I'm not saying they didn't. But we're standing there and we're looking across all these wounded warriors and they're worried about a little mud in a baseball field is more than a little did. You see the pictures. I I understand that. But I just kinda juxtaposing the two of them together here, guys that were over in this, you know, enough ghanistan Iraq with bullets flying over the heads worrying about I e. These heaton. Having to come back from what they came back from all their injuries. And we're worried about, you know, a little mutt on the field. I just I was just I don't know. And then I'll told me I shouldn't do that. I was like, okay, you're probably right. So I was comparing everything I think there's a big difference between his field being soft and a field having lakes on it. That's right. We were there to play in front of a crowd. I just wasn't and I should say thanks to Mike francesa, and the F known because he did make a number of announcements because we had to change the field because of the, the poor field conditions on the one place that and as an off told me they had the greatest field being the greatest the ground crew ever in the history of baseball fields go, so well, because I was trying to get the thing cancelled before we left here. I was they were gonna change. Okay. Let me to his credit. Yes. He said, it's on the, it's on the calendar. We're going, but I swear to God if I get out there, and they cancel it because of the weather, which we all see. For the last four days has been like today, he just said before the trip out there. Let's make a decision. If there's a chance, they might cancel it. So I got out there at noon saw the field. So boy, this, I've done it long enough to know we ain't playing on this field, but we were out there are ready. And then when the call came in please, sir, sir, that's where the steam came from because everything he was worried about happened at four o'clock. So I was in that same traffic to I know but I just kept saying how just think about who were playing in why we're playing. I just try. Let's just try to keep that in the back of our minds. Let's try to be as flexible. We possibly can Mary every complaint ahead. Boomer would say, you know you have all of your limbs, I go. Well, we can't compare everything because otherwise, I'll never be able to complain the complaint. I said, well, in this case, we can use that as an example to other games. I understand it, you know, we may may not need to go down a Madeleine, or or somewhere else parameters or something. I get that. But in this case you do what you need to do. And it was ended up working out, I think even out would admit. Oh, yeah. Very surprised, always works and thank God we were playing on that field because we would have got smoked how we played on the other field because the other field that would have been hitting home runs left. And right. Yeah. Once I got there, and I saw that the light stanchions were inside the fence was about three hundred fifty feet for the other field, by the way, it was. Yeah. Same. How about that? Catch by DP tro, was at the most unbelievable the best I've ever seen. He had to go around the lights navigated the light pole, and then it ended up like the ice cream cone catch. We're just hanging on CBS sports video of that. They were there. That's really I think they do. Yeah. One of the most unbelievable catches I've ever seen of credit by the way at the game winner last night. Backhander. Yeah. All the game with a look at that. Yeah. Got a little a little test a little nasty last night. Did it with the other team? Resigned. They they're you know, gritty bunch of guys. Since you know, grindstone hacking at you. Yeah. Taking way too. Seriously? As a couple crosschecks guys man with a men's Hockey League game can everybody just calm down. But you bet a win. Well, we're brought to you by all tracks hair. Surge shampoo. Is it surge? My hair dot com. By the way, sergeant stark for Madeline to say Hello. Oh, they love us there, maybe next season. Phillies Mets last night. You for that on tape any, but now you know. And how I just said, Alberton view. I don't know if you're being serious knowledgeable we want there. We want. They're going there, again, the making up that parameter game, aren't we regarding a parameter believe? So and so we also have the ears Lord Hamilton game. There's the cat watching it on the latest. So yeah, they're pretty good. Catch was ridiculous. Aaron Boone with Mike five o'clock. He's being the Blue Jays last night, ten eight Giancarlo Stanton. Join Carlos Stanton with a home run. His first Aaron Hayes a three run Homer as well in Luke void a two run double. Yankee scoring in bunches when they did score twenty seven straight games at home run for Aaron Boone steam now that it's happened with our group. Does it surprise me? No, not with that lineup. He says he looks at his lineup the way they battle opposing pitchers guys. Do a good job again. Processing making you work for it, and in terms of the lineup and how things are coming along for Giancarlo Stanton. It was his first home run of the season. The obviously miss much of the year so far with injury, but Pancaro. Yes. Giancarlo my good. Good. He'll put together. We'll get the the whole game good at bat a couple of time that was Stanton on. Yes, the wind goes to see Sobat the a he win. Six allowed just two runs. He's now five and four air ages to shade over four DJ LeMay Hughes for four. Himselves Assisi's tremendous. Strikes off balance a lot of week contacts of that. See that's always been all your la- make you with Susan on the fan after the game in terms of tonight series, does continue who starts for the keys Aaron Boone, you name a starter yet. No, we'll talk through that. So we're still not sure who that will be. But the series does continue tonight coverage on the fan at six twenty five also Joe Girardi with Mike later this afternoon as well, in terms of the Mets, there will end up losing to the Phillies lines. This went over was Arias Ed and in the left center basic paint dashes for third netball goes all the way to the wall. Piggery touches up at third heads home relay throw this handled by was REO Kingery, scores standing up and Boyce. Harper with a bullet of double up the gap. It left center gives the Phillies apply. Four league New England as notable used to be as eighty the lead there. They would winning six runs. Thirteen seven the final Phillies would beat the Mets last night. My Cal Franco three for four. The two run. Homer, Jay, Bruce. Say home run in. The sixth inning Phillies scored four to pretty much put it away. Here was making Calloway in terms of baseball. Makeshift, Al field trying to get guys in the lineup doesn't really work. Sometimes these guys haven't been out there, obviously a ton of time for the most part. They've done a pretty good job. It'll couple miscues here. And they're like you said, what we have to live with to score seven runs. Maybe so you know it's part of it. We would just have to pitch one of the play they were talking about last night was Jeff McNeil who completely misread a line drive that went over his head for an RBI double, and that's kind of the way it went. Here's Stephen Matt's. He just continues to struggle in Philadelphia. Why my finger on this is tough lineup. They got me twice now here and I don't really have an answer for you there. Just got to be better seven runs. Ten hits over just four and a third match takes the loss tonight Walker. It opposes Jake Arrieta. One more time will run you the clips pre-game in terms of what happened in Chicago with Mickey Calloway, and Jason Vargas and the reporter and the confrontation calories saying he simply got angry passionate guy about baseball, and I'm a tough competitor. And sometimes, you'll see it with the pyre sometimes we'll see what the players and, and, and the thing is, is you guys don't need to see it directed towards you. Now, this was after he had already spoken didn't really apologize. We sort of apologized. So we had to come back out and talk to these guys here is Brody van wagon says he had the fine him and Vargas because wasn't acceptable behavior. It was clear from, from everybody standpoint that the situation was regrettable hopefully from from our standpoint, Mickey and the players. And everybody else understand that this, this is this is not the type. A behavior that you have when, when you're frustrated and Jacob degrom who claims see any of this, I guess he wasn't in the house. He did come out and speak for the team though. He did. He says we gotta move on. We don't anticipate it happening again. Main focus now is we know this is a big series. We're playing very important baseball right now and need to start winning that was pre game and they didn't win the first game. They need to go out and win today in terms of what van wagon does or doesn't do during a game with his communication. He says there are conversations with trainers about players health this in relation to the June. First game. Jacob degrom. Anything that is health related to, to player status. We do communicate that with that. But as far as performance driven decisions in game. That's that's Mickey's. Call the coaches desk. Call now in terms of stopping that he says, no, sir. We'll continue to do that. We don't make sure that players are, you know, if the training staff and the, the health of the players, the player can't continue then than that communication happens between Chinese definitely coaches anything this over now. What happens tomorrow? What do we talk about? Yeah. I mean, I thought it was going to be over after yesterday's press conferences. I really did. And then everything kept on Raveling. But I the I think it'll be quiet for a little bit. But if they continue to lose in the Mickey Callaway watch is gonna get you when that'll be the next thing, does he survived till the all star break. Does he come back after the all star break? All those questions will be out there on top of a twenty four hour period they lost the game that they were leading where they would have won a series three games. The four three or four from Chicago. They end up having the problem after the Scotto game. They wake up the next morning. They have this whole pre game thing then they lose to a team that has lost seven in a row. And his look totally disinterested, hip, and the Mets become the elixir for the Philadelphia Phillies. And they, they got they got to win these next games man, I don't know what's going to happen. They were five outs away from being foreign three on this daunting road trip and going to Philadelphia and said there now three and five on it. So meantime, Red Sox, white socks. The way this game ends layer. It calms swing. Grab all lift side, backhanded by Orson law. He. He. All the Red Sox, walk it all when, at six to five Marco her the game winning RBI infield single Red Sox radio with the call. Their Boston wins over Chicago by that six five score. David dollar to our home. Araki's beat the giants Tuesday Diamondbacks over the dodgers, eight to five cubs beat the Braves eight to three Janas and Tim Cuco the NBA's league MVP that the Kuku. The up our am. I do. Bruton halls are the coach of the year? Luca Danni of the Mavericks, the rookie of the year. Knicks did not win anything, but they were fined fifty thousand dollars for not allowing the daily news access to their poster news conference on Friday, trade with the blazers sending Evan Turner to the hawks for kin bays. More good read too. I think it was ESPN dot com about the nets and possibly looking to go out and get the Andre Jordan now as part of a Kyrie Irving and Kevin to deal. I'm telling you, the nets are gonna end up with these guys. It's really crazy which was a lot more exciting of weeks ago. Yeah. Of course. What kind of just shows me? Maybe the, the nets have not learned their lesson. You would've thought that they would learn g right, exactly. You know it's not Billy king in Provo anymore. Doing this whole thing, right? I don't know. I I'm in my, my, my whole thing with Kevin Durant. Is that this whole story about the sign and trade and Kevin getting his money because Golden State feels guilt? Over the fact that he blew out his achilles. So that means they're going to trade him to somebody, and that somebody is going to have to pay him for what he did for the warrior. Correct. Because why I don't think it would work. I'm like, man. You gotta be some kind of special stupid to do something like that. Yeah. I don't think that they will the warriors, you gotta be careful because you'd be assigned, if you've rip up this contractor, he doesn't opt in and give them a five-year, max contracts, or supermax wherever the hell it is, and team doesn't wanna trade for that contract. Now you're stuck with it. And the amazing is that we'll know whether he's opting in by what Saturday I guess sometime this week and also for any Joe free agency that tampering period has already started. Yeah, that's going on right now. So guys like Aaron who seems to be the number one guy on the list is taking his trips around the NHL to see which team he's going to sign with. And who's going to overpay him head guy? Greg James on joins us going on James. Hey, I wouldn't I was into the show yesterday. And I know you had on Jackie's from the devil, and I don't know if you're listening, then we weren't they. I mean cherry and you guys great man. I was like Molin teeth. I know he's only eighteen years old. But I was like check this guy for post. He's a kid on into this is why nobody watches hockey. No. No. No, it's not connection. Millions of people who watch hockey and as millions of people love hockey and millions of people who are going to love. Jack was I- lowest rated segment ever. I, I heard part of it last night, I went back and listen to it. It's just he's. He's just getting into it very comfortable saying that he's got a little edge Thome there. Yes. So question about, I think the devils that the right thing, and I think the Rangers benefited from it because if the Rangers got a great guy to. And by the way, for those that say with the whole hockey, the Rangers have over a million Twitter followers. Sure they do. That's most baseball team in mazing passionate fan. But good. Who did the Rangers take? Trying to set myself up. He's capo Cocco Buber going logo. On the ice hill base latching days. Boomer fell in love. Another verse play this yesterday. I just did it the sporting. Believe it took till nine forty two in the and set it up, I know the one day that you've got the Cocco. But there's too much just met nonsense going on right now. It just amazing proud of you, though. I gave alley over under the under of four and a half minutes into the show. You don't want I felt bad because I missed. Yes. And I knew that it was a day pass and all that other stuff. And what did I say to you on Friday, that the devils very well could make a trade for PK Suba? And what happened on Sunday texted me that the devils made a trade for PK? Soobhan. Right. Exact impressive. And there were all crazed around the league and like shocked, and I'm like, you know, not you only the uninformed or shocked, and that was not, you women's World Cup the US beat Spain by the score. One in what did I tell you what? I did tell, but I think it's great for the devils. Yes. Lease in your own words. I was right. Yes. Exactly. You sounds better coming from you sound like brag off-again told on just answer your own question already. What did I tell you moment of the day brought to you by Resorts World casino in queens, over six thousand games this how NYC roles? A lot of talk about the Mets Mickey Callaway and his issue with the reporter from Sunday in Chicago them. Billy Martin punch reported. One time it it's just part at part of this game. He was just being kind of, like, I don't find that funny, but he's trying to be I know. That's why played it with the left. And I just don't see responding to saw him, right? Answer and I was like, all right. He's just trying to be funny. You know, he's trying to make light of the situation, Casey Stangl, stab guy will happen back in the day things part of the game. You know. Billy Martin punched reported one time it's just part of part of this game. Danny Murtaugh set. A reporter on fire once. Long time ago. I mean this is just this. History. Moment. Hey, lethal weapon long time ago. Right. Anyway, have a great day. All right. Thank you, Jerry. You U2. high.

The Sleeper and the Bust Episode: 843 Players Were Wrong on So Far

"Hello and welcome to episode eight, forty, three of the sleeper and the bus. It's Thursday. August twentieth. I'm euros pulse four and I'm joined by Justin Mason Justin Morning Sir Good morning how you doing I'm doing pretty well. All Things considered got to watch Casey mayes pitched yesterday that was a lot of fun and you know. Pitching was a lot of pitching was great yesterday. There's a lot of good pitching we're going to get into a bunch of it. So yeah, I'm I'm doing all right how about yourself? Doing. Okay it's pretty smoky here. Got Fires on every side of us which is. a bit crazy You know almost like the new normal but. We're luckily far enough away from every one of them this time. So that's at least good. He had. That is good. You had to evacuate last time. Yeah. Last last year, we didn't have to evacuate teen we did but I mean, yeah, the last few times we've had fires they've been you know up and we had one that got within a mile of our house this time you know the closest ones about thirty miles away but it is literally looking like it is snowing in August in northern California right now so much at driving. We'll hopefully everybody. Was Listening who is near that stay safe. Yeah. No chance may keeping a close eye on it with her parents in California and thankfully they're out of the danger zone right now to. You don't know and so it's always it's always scary and hopefully everything goes. All right Yeah. These like you said new normal you know it just seems it's almost like it's it's there's fire season. Now you know not to mention I let my house on fire or at least my brother-in-law then. What happened there? You sent us the picture. What the literal hack happened there I don't know I was having a cigarette You know on the side of my house and you know there have been fires everywhere and so it's been smokey and Ashman falling but all of a sudden it looked really really smoky in my backyard. And I was like that's weird. I walked around and the barbecue he been making ribs on was engulfed in flames and it had gotten onto the house and so jumped in action, grabbed the hose, put it out Thankfully, you know it must've been something wrong with the you know the gas line. Because you know water didn't exacerbate like A. On a grease fire. And got it out and a little bit of damage to house. But nothing too bad just just very, very lucky that I'm a smoker mean smoking saved our lives you know. In a roundabout way it. Did. But I'M NOT GONNA. Let you use that as a reason to continue smoking. So. One. Off Positive checkmark but We're GONNA have to review all the negative check marks. The Smoking has anyway I'm not here to chastise you about that I. I'm glad that you were able to see that that was terrifying that picture really really shook me a bit like holy crap that could have been so much worse. I'm glad. That you got everything handled there. Let's talk some baseball man. Casey Mines, debut yesterday. So detained by the way, he was the prospect of some note nowhere near minds. But you know since he was facing the Tigers he was matching pitch for pitch because. Diners. Striking out left and right did you get to watch his debut? Yes I watched both these guys go out at both were very impressive. At times is definitely I think started just slow down after about the third or halfway through the third inning of pitching and probably was out there for a little bit longer than he should have been considering how he slowed down. But many guys young tigers were in a losing streak just let the guy go ike as unsafe. He can work his way out of it I was surprised he got seven strikeouts man that see how that's not something that necessarily I thought we part of his game at this point especially through only what four and a third See I mean both were very impressive and I'm looking forward to kind of seeing I. Think they both have to starts next week. So he's gotTa be that'd be fun for fantasy. The both have to starts and you know. It is interesting I know that's surprising. A lot of folks because he didn't have Gaudy strikeout rates coming up mayes didn't You know he didn't have super long stops but the three stops that that were at least I mean he had two innings at rookie ball who cares but then eleven two-thirds at high a twenty percent repeated high for thirty two thirds twenty eight percent that is pretty strong and then seventy eight, two thirds at W. Last year twenty, four percent. So it's not like he was strikeout deficient I think one of the things that there was a little bit of a disconnect. Between that strikeout that expected strikeout rate and what he was doing was that swing strike rate was always there in the you know sitting at Fourteen fifteen percent last year and I think that that should have been the indication that there's there's and miss to his game Even if the even if the raw strikeout total wasn't necessarily there and I know everyone was expecting, scoble treats Google to put up the big strikeouts he really struggled through his first downing. It was just a downing. You never know how these out debuts are going to go with the nerves and everything school. Definitely he was caught up in the moment. But I was saying we did watch party on twitch for them is debut. I was saying if you took a casual fan who knows baseball and all that but doesn't really know all the players and you just said, how long has this guy been pitching? There's no way anybody would have said that was my as debut. The Poise Command and control like his presence on the mound. Mike soft factors, but that was so impressive. He was certainly not consumed by the. and. You could definitely see it that splitter was beautiful. I thought the way he was working different zones. was really impressive. I. I was really really taken by the whole thing. Like you said, it started to wear down a bit at the end there you into going four and a third gives a few runs. But a thirty five percent strikeout rate. On the seven walk or on seven strikeouts excuse me and no, no walks. Like I said Dunning for his part tearing up the Tigers. It's one thing we need to take that into consideration there. Before you go bidding like crazy he's really a four, four five type, but he did register seven strikeouts himself informed the third. Only walked one gave up three runs, five heads, but he pitched pretty well to. Now now I, gotTa put to test here. We talked about this on Tuesday said after they debut. I'm GonNa ask you for figure now. Include schoolboy on this too because he had the outing. We'll see what he does against Cleveland. So I guess it'll still be hard to answer for him because he'll have that Sunday Sunday afternoon start against Cleveland that could change the price here. But what do you think Mayes Scoble in dunning are GonNa go for infringer bids this week in in fifteen and twelve team mixers let's start with is I think that. All these guys go for a lot of money I mean obviously. Mayes will. Go for the most considering he is the the premier prospect of the three and an had the best debut Well, I guess could argue I mean him and Dan Dunning had the same pretty much. Yeah so Yeah, I think the predatory. He's probably GONNA go for two hundred plus. So I mean, it's it's interesting because he does have the to start next week in its against the cubs and the twins like I don't want any part of that and so I don't think that I'm going to go in on either school or Mayes very, very heavy I'll put some bids in then are like you know keep them honest. Tight bids by the way dunning actually might not pitch next week. They only have five games they could feasibly skip him until the following week. If they want judo could get both starts Julius GonNa Pitch Tuesday. So he could get the to starts with Kyko Gio and cease going in the middle there so. Keep that in mind when you're bidding on him, maybe that keeps the bids down and you get an opportunity to get him at at discounted rate because you don't WanNa overpay based on this start again, the Tigers can make anybody look good with their swing and miss and Dane dining really does cut more of a four five type. Now I understand being about misers to step there and you don't really want to pay two hundred dollars to sit somebody. that that that doesn't seem like the best use of resources particularly with just five bidding periods left. But When you talk about keeping up, keep them on its bid. Are you still talking triple digits? No No. No. No. Triple digits. So I'm talking like thirty forty bucks. Type thing. Okay. I mean. Yeah exactly I'm not. I'm not going to get him even if it lines up that he pitches every fifth game his third start after the to start, it's GonNa get it. GO GETS MINNESOTA AGAIN TO. Like you're talking about, you start to get some. Minnesota one against Chicago when he probably has what six starts left. Yeah I just know I'm just not gonNA pay for it. I honestly I. Don't even know if I'll put a bit him. I mean, you should always put a bit in. Should you. If you'RE NOT GONNA use him for three of his Ghana's a forty dollars? There's no way that's bad. There's no way. That's bad. All right I mean. Here's here's a question for you. Then would you rather have? Mayes knowing that you're probably not going to use them for the next two weeks. I mean I feel like I I actually feel like I wouldn't use them next week you'd use them, you use them in the to start versus Chicago. Cubs. So impressed with what he did like you know he's not some must start type of guy but I on a two step I think actually would take the risk there I mean I'd have to look at like you know Mike Teams in evaluate. Share all the guy that's a case-by-case basis type thing but. I'm feeling like it's unlikely that I'm GonNa want to. Risk having my ratios blown up twice in a week. You with a guy who's unproven. Yeah I know. I hear you. But I mean he's top prospect for a reason. Pitched. A bit like the top prospect. So listen I understand some trepidation particularly with that with that to stop next week. But I think you have to put a bit like I I don't know that you do. Yeah I, don't I mean. Listen. Here's a situation I'm you know and if obviously we don't have also I'm stashing burland illegal I picked up for fifteen bucks last week. You know, and so I if I'm going to pick someone up and then not play them that really puts a strain on my roster flexibility that I've gotTa make sure you know pretty much got to start every other pitcher. Roster only paid fourteen bucks for him. I figured that was probably just for like one week to see if there's any progress in the news or not sure they're necessarily. was anything that that would make you wanNA keep them this week but I mean again. We've seen league where guys get. Players by by doing just a token bid and it can pan out so nicely. Yeah. You probably almost certainly will not get him. But what if you're entirely feels the way you do backs out you cannot tell me that getting him at thirty to fifty dollars would not be a positive like it's just not that big of an outlay. For somebody like Casey minds and and specifically mayes like school. You know it was rough in the debut and he has Minnesota next week. So I get having a little bit more trepidation with him. I totally understand that but I really think that I will never last. Chicago or sorry an Detroit's schedule for the last two weeks is pretty cake. You're talking Kansas from from the fifteenth to the Twenty Six Kansas City five times cleveland four times minute at Minnesota twice. If you can avoid those two at Minnesota like you're getting, you're getting to starts or maybe even three starts against you know can't city Cleveland. Kan City so I don't know it's definitely going to be a game time decision Haw, definitely write him up for my my fab article this week. you know and and Kinda give my thoughts out on that. So I'm sure if Jason and I are able to get together this week was camping this weekend but with with all the fires doesn't care like that sitting here at than something like that it's going to happen. So likely will record this weekend and maybe we'll talk about. This one more time. But right now, I'm feeling pretty pretty tentative on wanting to pick up either school or mice. School you know it's going to be very much token bid. Is. Put like a real bid and if I get him the I'm GonNa. Go. AHEAD AND BLEND I saw enough from him that makes me think that. Is probably not going to get blown out of both those games like the the poison in command of his stuff was enough there by the way dunning if he doesn't get one of the starts next week and they let Julian. Throw the two step which everyone in fantasy is certainly hoping for. against Pittsburgh. Casey are you kidding coming that? Be I need that for my IS IT S. Going to be a huge infusion of of numbers for Julia phobes. Dining would then be lined up for two step possibly again, they at that point, they could slaughtermen wherever they wanted but the trajectory here that wrote a wire has would put him at Minnesota at Casey. So one bad one But Yet Likely not pitching this upcoming week because they don't need a fifth starter. So here's a really interesting story that I did not expect that we would see. Stephen. is going to the bullpen. Wait that's not the story Seth Lugo is taking his spot in the rotation. And they WANNA. Stretch them out and keep them in the rotation indefinitely. Now Lugo was was in the rotation when his first coming up. And I remember like. He they hybrid. They did the hybrid role stuff his very first year, and he's one of those guys where you're like Oh my God if he gets. Five plus innings, he can do some things and that's exactly what he did when they put him in relation to end the season, his eight starts, he generated a to sixty eight era strikeouts went way down he had twenty nine and forty seven innings after striking out a bunch in the in the bullpen in these multi ending roles. Seventeen in seventeen innings. So strikeout printing. But. Then the following year he started pretty much fully eighteen starts one relief appearance put up a four, seventy, one era, a a one, thirty, eight, whip. Since then he's pretty much lived in the bullpen save a handful of starts in two thousand eighteen and I want to see if those were opens or like actual. Those are legit starts. He had six shutout innings five, hundred five to earn in five four shutout innings and then six runs only three earned in three. But that was at Colorado so you can excuse that one. So you know a modest success there in the twenty, eighteen five starts, but in the last last year full bullpen and so far this year fobel now he needs to get stretched out Lugo does but what do you think about this move here? Obviously, it's not particularly actionable for fantasy because. He was closing some people already have him in every league like he's not. He's not available in any league. Are you intrigued by this to the degree that you think it's going to be fantasy viable for Seth Lugo as starter. I am but not necessarily for twenty twenty. Yet because he I mean, he still has a stretch out only bad hitching I mean in his last four outings, it's been one one third and one So I mean that's largely because he's yeah he's been closing up in things like that because Diaz had struggled in. It's great for Dez. People who've got jazz rostered which I am one of those. Part he's come back around. You look at his numbers right now the only thing that would have pause with for Diaz is the four point two walks per nine he has five walks in his ten and two thirds twenty four strikeouts. And only the one homer that he gave up early and we all thought Oh boy here we go again but to his credit, he's really he's really settled down. So I think he is ready to reassume that role as the closers I'll be good for you and the folks who have him rostered. But yeah, like what can they possibly expect of Lugo right now like how are how long will it take him to get ramped up? You Think I think it's going to take at least three starts and then we're talking you know like I said if we've only got about six starts late in the season and maybe not that many for you know for some teams That's not going to be super beneficial for fantasy in two thousand twenty. However, if you're in a dynasty league, if you're in a keeper, League the person who may have him on their team right now may have been stoked about the saves and now kind of upset that he's moving into the radiation. Yeah and so you'd that you'd rather have him causing. Yeah. Oh, for sure for fantasy But that being said, I think this might be even like a Bilo opportunity especially after his first start which we can't imagine going to go longer than maybe three innings. Exactly. I don't really see that. So I would if you're not in a competing. Position Right now, or you're looking to go for twenty twenty one I might try to buy low on Lugo in a dynasty or keeper League And and then you can either try to flip them if he's good next year or you get to reap the rewards so I I've always liked Seth Lugo I was bombed when they took him out. Of the rotation of because they were stacked there. I mean there's always a chance that they do that again but I it seems like this is going to be his role moving forward. And I hope he's good. Yeah. Me Too. It'll be fun to see and you know maybe he can transition Aaron ramp up. Let me get three innings this and then by the second study, he's he's ready to go. But I it's hard to say hard to say. All right. Let's go ahead and talk about. Mr Brad Keller. You want guess how many runs he's giving up this year and seventeen and two thirds innings I. Know Exactly How many zero? It's very easy answering zero indeed Brad Keller got a slow start this year because of covid so he didn't get his first start 'til August sixth. But he's shut out the cubs for five scoreless and then since he back to back for six, six, two thirds so he's not he's not beating up on on clowns squads there. No since he isn't quite playing to their full potential, but they're they're not a bad offense at all and Chicago's a very good one. Any embarrassed them Brad Keller. Three and now. We are a point ninety one. strikeouts even up a little bit as fifteen and seventeen and two thirds. Still, walking guys but that's kind of part of his game. He doesn't give he'll walk somebody attack the next batter how do you feel about him right now? I mean I think there's obviously going to be some regression coming down I think better as he are. We'll get better book. he he's definitely gotten lucky in strand rate department in the Bab Department Do I think that this I do I think that he could keep it together a long enough where. If you've already rostered him for his first three starts that you're going to be pretty happy with your waiver wire, pick up a you know a few weeks ago at the end of the year. Yeah. I do that being said. I mean. The walk rate is a bit concerning. You know walking four per nine jour- right now but. Game now like I said. Won't give you won't give in like he'll walk somebody. Attack the next header which I kinda like because he's not a big strikeout and you feel the ground ball the next batter it can be dangerous in his bat outings go south. There's a lot of baserunners at that point when they hit star fallen but I don't mind Brad Keller's approach he's always going for that ground ball out and he figured hey, I can get a double play here I'm not just going to lay out in some meatball here on a pitch count on a hitter scout rather. Yeah I mean if he's available I gotTa winces where's this next? Start is the question. I mean, if he's available I, think you pick him up and you try to ride the kind of ride what he's doing right now. But. I don't think he's necessarily particularly safe. Start. At Saint Louis at the White Sox I'll take that. I mean Saint Louis has been decimated by covid there I mean Brad Miller has been their number five hitter. Hey, he's been killing it though, yes but still his bill Brad, Miller. So. Yeah, I think I would I think it would continue to write it for at least another week and then you can reevaluate. And that's I mean, that's pretty much what you have to do right now in in fantasy anyways is you know go on a week by week basis than reevaluate everything and then do it all over again for these last few weeks. But. Keller is been impressive in those starts and and I can't see anything that is like super alarming to me swinging strike rates up I mean. He's you know throwing a more in the zone, but he gets that you know those ground balls so that that's not necessarily super concerning to me either. So yeah. If you're if you're expectation for cower the rest of the way, something like a three, eighty, four, twenty era. I. Think you're in the right ballpark there, and if that's something that helps your your squad to have him with you know. Expect that and take anything else as as bonus. Because you didn't pitch out of his mind right now it's weird to say this about a guy who's thrown seventeen innings in three games not allowed to run, but he's like a high floor low ceiling guy. And know. Everybody, how we view him and I think everybody could use one of those guys how volatile pitching's in this year and how many injuries there are no doubt I, mean you know we were talking about this Our special section today is going to be on some of the guys that we missed and you were saying looking up and down the pitching ranks of the guys who just got hurt. You know when we're not taking on the guys got hurt there's plenty to go around for the guys who are still upright but just so many injuries which we knew were going to happen that's what made the Kobe. So scary is because you also have that in addition to all the standard injuries that we get So yeah, that's Brad Keller take a look, your ten teams seventy twelve. He's GonNa. Still be available and and you're going to want to take a look I? Think mostly ten teamers but I would pick them up for that to start for. Sure. Erin Volley. Rushed Pittsburgh last night with a complete game he didn't give up a run, but he's down to a two hundred, ninety one. Point. Ninety seven whip You talk about some guys. We got wrong. This certainly is not one of those. It is for me I was not in on Errands Volley and On Self I'm really I know I know you're just looking at the PAT yourself on. Yeah. But I mean I was very tepid on him my event partner in one of our main events like kept US volleys top guy and I kept like steering US away from him in You know that's my bad. You know I was I was wrong and I mean I was Willington minute after star to eat he just he's been so dominant, it's just been So impressive to see like how he mixes those pitches and just makes hitters look foolish at the plate so. I'm super pump for you and I know you have him on a lot of teams. So bummer for me but. No chances getting out of this rotation you know. They're missing too big pieces already and who knows what happens when with them when they come back? Yeah. For Real One thing that's been really interesting about. Four of five stars have been on the road. So he's he's going into other ballparks. Obviously they're not really hostile environments right now with no fans but you know he's got on the road dominating at Minnesota at the White, Sox at Detroit hilariously enough his worst start six innings, four runs, only three strikeouts, and then bounce back from that. You know mediocre start they're. Those Pesky Tigers but The funny thing is you know even with the runs you'd be okay get some runs but you'd expect some strikeouts. The only got three. That was the hilarious part wasn't that for my teams but it was it was kind of. And then he bounced back with the with the complete game yesterday at Pittsburgh nine innings one-run five heads, six strikeouts volley has been excellent. Um and just kind of wanted to acknowledge him a little bit because you know it has been really nice to watch him pitch well and. We saw police aspen good to obviously is off the field stuff is being punished duly. So but I think it's time to bring those guys back by the way like I don't know how much longer they're going to continue this. Apparently home. For ten days, it has not been ten I don't think it has. Yeah didn't they leave like? Last. Sunday, we just had the Sunday before that. Let's look at an. Can Judge by police acts last start his last start was on. The eighth. Yeah like so okay I guess if Monday counts the first day I, don't know if it's Sunday or Monday that's coming the first day I guess I think it's Monday. Okay and then I guess ten days is today. Okay. Then then it it just feels like it's been so long but Al the there was a report that said if police acquis down for eighteen days and clever jurors down for twenty days to get an extra service time, they're so stupid if they do that and I hope that they go on a huge losing streak if they do that. I mean they're doing well. I mean, there are only half game buying the twins for the division, but the White Sox, right there I, the way. They do that I really think they would get one of those two wild spots. Either way that we'll see you never know in to keep these two guys out for another. Eight to ten days. I mean I wouldn't but I could understand why they would. I cannot understand I. think that would be remarkably stupid in every possible way and I would want no offense to the guys filling in I hope they give up fifteen runs every time out. And I'm not even talking about the fantasy implications of it like. That part would be a bummer too but just. Using this to get service time manipulation now I. I'm so out on that and I would want them to get devastated every game that they play. Out on the outside looking in on the playoffs and make man you know you could use to like really strong arms there for for a week to ten days in the middle of the season. Yeah I would I would. I'll be rooting against them so hard if they leave them down this long. Yeah. Hundred percent hundred percent absolutely well, from revealed as sat by most folks this week myself included. I stand by the process when he went into coors field and said, hey, dummies, you should have played me. I'm awesome very, very impressive start there for from Valdez his areas down to one seventy, two on the air one, Oh nine, whip twenty, nine, strikeouts, thirty one and a third. He's been awesome. He seven two thirds, three runs only one of them earned seven hits a walk five strikeouts for from does in coors field. What do we think in based on this I mean, this is change your outlook on him. With regards to firmer Valdez what you expect from the rest of the way or is this just a great start in a difficult environment for Equality Pitcher? Like what like what does this do for you I? Know it's one start. So you want to be careful to not overweight it but does this establish him as like oh? Hey, I thought he was just this. You know. Play him at home and against weaker teams. But now you feel like maybe you could play him everywhere. I mean, let's be honest. It's not just one start. Hasn't been bad yet. It I mean if you take off that first outing that he had where he struggled, which you know obviously isn't fair to do but I'm just going to do it just to make my point because that's how I roll and also say this though it wasn't even that bad of an it was four hundred third. You give up all three runs in that fifth inning like he kind of ran out of gas there toward the end. Only, two strikeouts, I don't want to over eight it but against the dodgers. All in all, it wasn't that bad of an outing either and I remember watching that one on repay because I can't get Houston game. So I had to watch because I have frame evolved on multiple teams and I was like you know he pitched pretty well like he deserved a little bit of a better fate but ended up giving up those runs putting those runs on his record late. But since then he's been excellent I, think you're going to give us the the numbers in the four start sense. Then go ahead. Yeah. Twenty seven innings one. Strike strikeout you twenty seven strikeouts during that during the Only six walks I mean he's been absolutely phenomenal since then and yeah. So I mean I, there might have been people who said I Colorado Colorado's not been. You know world beaters necessarily this year and That yes. 'cause I didn't I for me again, I I stand by that process. But. It opened my eyes on guard like okay I see you man I see you. I think people were probably scared off of him by kind of the small sample of seventy innings. We saw last year at the majors were. really struggle. You know with walks really struggled with you know with home runs. I've been super impressed with him in. He's got that offense behind which is great in the bullpens a little bit of a mess but there are a lot bit of a mess. So but I mean he's Gotten You know he's he's. Getting it done without like in a super impressive swing strike rate I mean he's really just you know. Getting the contact in getting guys out and I'm I don't know if it's necessarily gonNA continue but I don't see a ton in there to think that he's just going to implode in defense is pretty decent behind him. So that fifty seven percent ground ball rate. will help him kind of get out of jams does get number right now he's not even getting in those so. I like him You know the lefty which is I. got a check was coming schedule is but I think he's at this point. A must art. Looks. Like he's winding up for a to start home angels and Oakland you know not neither team. Super Easy but that's an easy start. Angels Been. Super hit or miss this year exactly. So I'm Oakland Great but I'm still I'm still putting is out there. Yeah and then likely. Against, the angels again the following week so. Yeah I mean. And then let's see the Houston remaining schedule looks actually pretty decent towards the end is some games against Seattle a lot of games against. And Arizona. So like the kind of the end season schedules lines up really really nice for Houston. So I. I mean, I assume he's actually probably still available. In some leagues, which is a little bit. Insane. but. You know. I could see a scenario. Where he was made available this week because of the course star or somebody will send you. I can't hold them my bench out come back to him available in twenty-seven percent of leagues in CBS. Yeah and he's only on is available in forty two percent at ESPN. So shower leagues check your wire make sure. Make sure that he's on a squad. So that. You don't just leave Fram rebel does out there thinking, oh, he has to be on team somewhere because he might not be in. You don't want to make a bad decision there I added this guy late. So I'm kind of springing advert. For the cubs. Pitch. Pretty well in his season debut yesterday. and. You know he came up last year with a little bit of fanfare. He is. He is a prospect of some note and you could see the stuff like he threw twelve twelve and a third innings and I'm not gonNA overrate them if they were bad. But his first two outings he it was a four inning relief appearance to start. gave up one hit. Five strikeouts one run two walks and then a foreign two-thirds innings start we're give one hit one run for walks for strikeouts. And then got blitzed for seven against Pittsburgh and you know again, only twelve and a third one more inning after that. So there's not much to go off of, but he really did look sharp in those first two outings be willing. Hey Man, this might be somethin'. And and he really only got that Pittsburgh Start and it was done. Gets a good start here goes five innings, two heads, one unearned run a walk and six strikeouts against the cardinals. Who as you mentioned have been ravaged by Kovin but advert delay here is something that. We could see sticking or is this just a spot start because of the doubleheaders? Stop a spot start because the doubleheaders I know Alex Mills got beat up yesterday but I still think county jails. Sorry Alec. Mills. But I, I think he's GonNa. Get more chances rotation though if he keeps getting beat up, maybe they do make a permanent move. In Bring Alyssa, lay into the rotation fulltime but I'm pretty sure can taunt as you know, use the working his way back. Rotor has him in the rotation next week. Now they don't have embolden yet, which they don't usually start building names until. Friday Saturday Sunday anyway, which means folded means that it's locked and loaded but they do have cantata back on Tuesday at Detroit and so be mills can tunnel Lester Hendrix Darvish. Could be an interesting bullpen. They need bullpen now. Yeah and that's where I think he could really thrive is in the bullpen and a multi inning guy Chat Woods on the I l. and that's why he's GonNa end. Mills can both be in the because originally, it was gonNA be one of those two. There were some chatters some of my cubs fan friends were telling me that they were going to put Kentuckiana in the bullpen not. Mills So I don't know that that would necessarily happened but now they don't have to worry about it. So I think it is a one and done for but I'm kind of curious what you think about him. As a await, he went all. He went right back to the alternate site. That ends at wasted our time. Keep an eye on him in case he comes back up but right now. No Nothing to see here except a nice little spot start for the. For the double header. All right it's time. Time to make fun of you. I, just playing in an alternate site fantasy leagues. All your mouths Smith shares just got a real big boost if you are. Because he got option. And you know I got option. fireable. At Baseball. Look. We're not going to Belabor this too much. It's it's. It's a forty hour on Alex Smith and the disappointment that he is to me. Hey. Let's let's talk about it then because. You know one, thirty, three, one, seventy, one, seventy, eight and jokes. Aside this is exactly why I don't like these players because they are bad at baseball and they're they're hold on a major league roster is tenuous the difference between somebody Alex Smith and Billy Hamilton to is that he's not even good at defense. Hamilton always had that elite defense in a Prime Position Center field. There's another huge difference. Is that billy? Hamilton you had to pay a top fifty draft spot for them. True but then just make Billy Hamilton Algebra. Tomasi then. As. Those two. But with you upset if you're a MANDIS owner. yes he's. He's been studies. But he's all the. I'm upset because I have to keep playing because he has six steals I can't even justify taking him out of the rotation of the lineup yet like I took Malik Smith Out of my lineup's two weeks ago. So I didn't eat a lot of you know or a lot more of what had already eaten. In terms of in terms of you know what his batting average and lack of production was giving. But yeah, I mean with Manti, you're just eating. It right now and he's added. Zero Homerun homers zigzag and you expect some power he's not even supposed to be peer rabbit. You eat the crappy batting average or obt depending on what kind of leader and he's you know he's six pretend on the basis to. So are they going to like put a yellow white on him at any point Athenee As Weird I it's so twenty twenty two even be saying this but deny- has been making smart moves. What ifs. Now he says, you know what? You can't just go whenever you want. You'RE GONNA have to wait for our sign now because you clearly are not making the best decisions in, he hasn't batted above the eight SPA y'all. The eleven we've been covering that Did you mentioned it in a in a row? Right up all because I know that don't know if I did actually Jeff had it in the lineup piece and I had it in a tidbits piece so we've been on that about. Getting down the lineup which again, smart move by Mancini I feel like I feel like Saint. Louis Medina. 'cause he's traditional speedy. Speedy leadoff hitter Ned. Ned Yose would be loving putting him number one. And so yeah to see. Your questions valid about Ari disappointed by like I. said, my disappointment comes in that I can't even bench him because I feel like I have to take those steals where I can get them, but he has been brutal but hey. Don't. Don't shift the blame don't don't turn the attention. Alex Smith. Malik saw you on shares. Let's. Let's cut to the chase here. How many shares did you 'cause I know you there was a mean you know you of this and that but at the same time, I, don't think you were able to like really are not stable but I was trying to take advantage of you know the Robin Price. Yeah. How often did you take advantage of it advantage? I mean I. Definitely. Did I'm I'm I'm looking trying to look up real quick on an F. B. C.. How many How many NFC let's see so I had him on three of ten and if BC teams. Okay including one main the lower rate than I thought. But yeah, they got him on a main there now. Trusting him to be your full speed or do you have other speed around him particularly like in that main in that same that was the league where we had plenty of speed or not I wouldn't say plenty of speed, but we had a good amount of speed. And we still felt just a little shaky on the speed. So we took Alex unfortunately, not only did not work, but we also had marcado. We're going to talk about him and players have missed because that's a joint. Miss US right there. See. You know he gets optioned he's been rough obviously a Fulci And you know. Without being too bleak about it for him. I think his his career as a major league as as like a set major leaguer is in is in peril now he might be guy she. writes. Yup. Who again has the great defense whereas Smith does not what makes life even more difficult on him? This one surprise people more and I don't know neither of these really surprised me but Daniel Vogel got. Smith was just sent to the ultimate site Bobak axed. The thing of it is man this kind of reminds me of to make a basketball analogy. How like? Old School centers have been phased out. I think this Vogel Bach Player type has been phased out. and. It started actually a while ago with Chris Carter when he led the League in homers couldn't find a job the following year and played sixty two games with the Yankees before being done and hasn't been in the major sense. He had forty one homers leading the National League in. Two Thousand Sixteen. Sixty two games in two, thousand seventeen and his career is over. You know I mean this go ahead. Don't get me wrong like the thirty home runs were surprising but Vogel box never really been good. Exactly. That's why. You know. He can hit for some Bob but even the thirty homers came with you know to await average but a three forty-one bp, which is nice. Because the bases can't play any defense. I don't teams don't want that anymore they don't want. A true like. A hitter who can in that's all he can do unless you're transcendent like, Nelson Cruz. Jordan Alvarez that type INCR- Chris Davis before he kinda hit this road bump here starting last year unless you really really turning things offensively. You gotta be able to do more things especially because a lot of teams like to use the D. H., as a rotating day off a half day off. So Vogel Bach delayed. Do you think he he'll latch on somewhere I? Think But. I agree with you. It should have been that surprising because last year wasn't that great. But you know he made the All star team. Well. That's. Anybody else I know but that's still kind. I did not realize that he made the All star team. I think he was also hitting better than. He was to thirty, eight, three, seventy, five, five. Oh, five in the first half which you with twenty one hundred that's now that is pretty good. But. He could just go through those streets where he he's getting no hits outside of a home or here and there and you like the VP. But he can barely even use the obt when he gets on base because he's so slow. So He's obviously a cut even in Al only maybe. Maybe see where he lands but. I want. United. I think he's a cut if you need that roster spot. Yeah. I think he's a full cut. It's not like he's on the I l. so you can't even stash him. You've done exactly did him on your list exactly. All right. So let's talk about some players we missed on and you hinted at one of them. He's going to be second guy here these first to our joint mrs where old hands and we're Thelma and Louise off the cliff and how bad we were on these guys and You know it's a bummer to Nelson Lumet. Okay. I was saying. Fours era. You're going to get your strikeouts but his right handed Robbie Ray type here. What are you guys freaking out about? He's been amazing I mean. Not to not to not to blast you too hard but you ain't even a step further. You say he's GonNa be in the bullpen soon. Yeah. That was to be one of my bold predictions for the never wrote and. He's really turned it around against lefties to the point where his opiates against them's actually better for eighty-six versus five seven against righties and he he'd always had this platoon issue and I say always the only through twenty seventeen and then some evenings last year he had this lengthy track record, but he does have a one hundred eighty point platoon split I, even including this year's numbers. So you can imagine how severe it was coming into this year seven, sixty, eight, versus five, Eighty, eight. Four Denilson limit. The thing of it is and I don't say this to undercut him because what he's doing is working, but it's not like he's added a pitcher anything. Fade the fastball inside there peaking like they're both operating at the very best right now, and he's also throwing the cider the most ever from forty four percent up to fifty one percent and we've seen this with different guys is Kinda reminds me of like a Patrick Corbin type thing where he's just saying you know what? I've got this great slider let me dive headfirst into but what's really changed for lead is adding take on the fastball and that being a real pitch because. I was making the joke that he has one pitch justice slider fastball wasn't even that good but he's rocking to pitches right now he's killing it one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, one, whip thirty, two, percent strikeout seven percent walking even cut the walk rate. I was we were wrong on this one. Where do we go from here with Nelson Limit I'm going to start with the caveat that. Is going to get me in trouble but. We're also only a month into a season. If we're a month into a season, one, hundred, sixty, two games sample people you know obviously would be overreacting by you know giving. Turnarounds on players and stuff like that sure That being said. I will take leave the early L. on met with the. That I think that. I think there are going to be troubles bro. I some. You know you're you're you're you're owning that hey, he's been awesome. Undeniably. Awesome to the point. But I mean I think I think they're deathly is GONNA be trouble. Down the pike form because he is that to pitch guy and we've seen those guys you know end up struggling in very few be successful over long time in a short beers. I'm sure but. He gives up a lot of hard contact and he's done. A contact? Yeah. Yeah. I mean his exit velocity You know allowed in his heart hit percentage allow twenty third twenty-first percent all over on baseball savant. you know he gives up a ton of fly balls. It's a matter of time before some of those start leaving the park and you know one of the big things that I mean outside of him, not walking guys, which is great to see because at has always been a huge issue for and then he gives of the bomb and you know a multi homer instead of exactly. into the fact that he's not giving up is many walks is a really really encouraging sign. But the home run rate will come up at some point. Babbitt will come up at some point. And I think that's going to hurt. So if you're in a trade league I think this is now the time to go get like a fortune for limited especially because already you've already logged all these innings on your team and you're likely you know in a better pitching shape than a lot of other teams so. For a top twenty, five, top thirty enter. It doesn't say let's say you've also may be hit on some other guys like that if he's carrying rotation and you can't get rid of him. I, totally get that. But if if if Matt is in addition to you know volley and. I was GONNA say bring him on but with his back where we're a little bit nervous on where that's going, but he'd been great to that point. But you know, let's just say that the met isn't even your number one, you got three or four other guys who are clicking including some late round guys you picked up and you you have a pitching surplus. Then I'm one thousand percent trading of even if I don't think he's necessarily going to fall apart I would still be wanting to deal him. Now when you say trouble brewing, let's define the trouble that where where do you think what do you think has rest of season projections to be because To go off of the projections that we have, it ranges from three, sixty nine, which is nice from zips up to four ten from the Bat. With the whip ranging from one, twenty, two to one, twenty, seven, and they all obviously have a good strikeout rate from eleven plus straight which which I think you and I even had our worst on him. Agree he's a strikeout guy, a hundred percent. It's the era that concerns me. I I. Think I'm going to go further on my call though I think he's actually going to maintain a sub for the rest of the way. Are you pushing him over for? No I'm I think steamer kind of nails it. And Radio Three one, twenty, two. Yeah. I think that is still very good pitcher especially in this environment. So that's why you know I'm willing to take the L. Yeah. But I do think that that is probably more likely of a other outcome than. I don't think he's necessarily GONNA go right back to what he was in previous seasons but I do because I do think there is I mean the fact that he is not walking guys you know is is a change and like you said, the fastball does look does look better and it's helping you know kind of increase. The effectiveness of that devastating slider. So that's around keep my eye on though is making sure that that fastball. If you're if you have any trepidation about maybe you maybe you were with us that that he wasn't going to be that that great this year but you still wound up with them or you had him as keeper and he was too cheap to get rid of insight. You still have some nerves. Watch the fastball performance every time he goes out if you start to see that Wayne, that's when you can see some trouble brewing but until then hey, it's all systems go into Nelson lament. I was wrong. We we were both wrong. We're sorry we we're sorry on that one because. He he's making stupid every. This guy is to and. You know I'm GonNa give you a little I'm gonNA give you a little credit on this one credit back on Oscar Ricardo. We both were in on him. You started to put a little bit of trepidation out there and say Maybe I'm not going to dive as headfirst into him because he's batting eight and just that draw because we had perceived him as a one to guy in their lineup when they say are Nanas, it made a lot of sense why they were doing it and I was like you know what? He can still perform from down there at least it's not a skills drop. It's because they've added other guys who fit up at the top of the lineup turns out he should have been hitting the twelfth because he's Just a brutal brutal run here before being sent out one eleven one, sixty, seven, one eleven. Now, this also fits under the it's a month and in six months season I would be saying, Hey, got this one wrong. He got sent out triple A. But at the same time I'd be saying it's forty eight plate appearances. So I will take the L on it without a doubt because forty eight point appearances in this season is a big deal and now he's sent out and we don't know if he's going to get back up anytime soon you will. But for the long term, I, I'm still not I'm still not out on Makoto say that. So again, that's not to hedge or anything that's just to give the long-term advice versus the short term one, sixty, one, Bab I'm GonNa go crazy here and say I don't think that's GonNa hold. I don't even think that the twenty nine percent strikeout rate is particularly real because if you look the underlying skills. With that have not drastically changed and he had a seventeen percent strikeout rate last year and Ricardo never really struck out coming up through the minors. So I think things are just he's in a funk and it's really bad and I don't know that I can find a forty eight played apparent sample last year where he was this bad. But I can find one where he where he was crappy and so again I will. Eat The L. This year but I'm actually going to go knock on some doors dynasty if I'm in one and say, Hey, let me take them Ricardo share off your hands particularly if things haven't gone my way and I'm having embarcadero s season overall to where I can or I might have a little bit more of an eye on next year versus this year. How do you feel about our boy marcado flopping on us? I'm. Yeah I don't know that I. I mean he's only twenty five. I mean like in and like I think we mentioned in the episode where we talked about him being sent down that Cleveland outfield is. US The mass, and so like that's said, he will be back up like they just can't you know. They just can't afford not to have you know some sort of body. They're probably give them some things to work on his head right and he's good defensively you know. So it's not like you know at least he offers something for the team. I mean, the hard part is. Like there's things I really just don't like about the profile You know I mean his hard contact percentage way down. So you even when he was making contact, which was very often go like it was ofter contact. That's what's going well, right off we don't have to pretend that. L.. He has this factory is this factor? No you're betting on SPEC at this point of view go pick them up but I think price will reflect that I think for sure like I don't think anybody is going to be like. Well, I. Need Top one, fifty player career like. A. Lot of leagues. It'll just be on the waiver wire so. Especially, if you're not playing in like a super deep keeper a dynasty? I think you know maybe part of the issue was he was trying to be a little bit too passive. Got For first strike on him You know I think six or seven percent more you know and obviously small sample. But that's what I'm talking about what the strikeout rate firmer Kado not necessarily being some major skill degradation. But rather just the funk that he got in that he he couldn't escape and actually did find a sample relatively similar to this from last year forty to play appearances one, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, seven, two, hundred, and so you know a little bit better than than this one that we've seen but. We. We've seen him struggle for bounce back out of that put up a seven, eighty, five with six homers and six steals the rest of the way from that point forward. So it's like if they had the time to let them just play through it I think they probably would have given a longer a longer run here in a standard six month but right now their offense and if the rest of the offense was performing around him to, they might have also been able to let him work out in the majors but their offense is dreadful justin and that's part of why Makoto got sent down to is that they had to do something. Yeah, I think they. They had to make a move. It's unfortunate. For sue out among fantasy teams I think only. In one league unfortunately that mantle dent link So. Yeah. I think he'll be back at some point this year I I wouldn't mind because the price. Oh, cheap trying to buy low on him. But I'm also not like super pumped like I'm not like like really going to go push it You know I'm pretty much saying, Hey, here's the bottom guy my roster you wanNA trade. I agree I, agree I take a look at. COTTO. In dynasty size keeper. Only something like that and say Hey You WanNa make a trade. If they say Nah, I'm still asking pretty high prices. Okay. Good. Luck. I hope he does well, because I like him but I'm not going to overpay for. So McConnell, we got that one wrong. This one is I don't know where you stood on him. So I'm joining I'm putting this out as a solo, but you might join me here I don't know Louis Robber. I started to really peel back. Based on the fact that. It was a pretty pretty rough plate profile and I was worried that we can get the volatile negative end of that in the bigs and and he's going to not pan out as a top one hundred pick turns out. He's you know he's a strike out a bunch don't walk much share I can do that and still hit five homers steel four bases with a very capable. To seventy, six average he's been killing it and I. I really backed off on overdraft him because I was nervous based on the fact that he had twenty four percent strikeout and five percent walk in AAA. Last year he's at thirty, four percent and seven percent respectively this year in the majors. But like I said, it has not harmed him because he is so skilled up that. He's just out running the strike out and walk ratios, and this would be classified under the stuff that we're talking about with DVR and talk about on rates and barrels don't get too locked in on what somebody doesn't do and let it make you. Ignore what they are able to do, and you know you have to be mindful of it because I do think that this. Played skill profile will lead to some some cold stretches, but he's been killing it and I was I was backing off saying, don't take them as a top one hundred guy and he's been incredible. Yeah I mean I wasn't taking him as the top one. Hundred Guy I mean but I did acknowledge that the up this kind of upside was there. I just also acknowledged that there was. A ton of downside and I still believe that's their. Swinging outside zone almost fifty percent of the time only Toledo his swinging strike rate is twenty six point three percent is really bad. I I could see a scenario where I come around scare. Yeah. You'RE GONNA get home around trade forum and then he's going to hit to twenty yards. Say I come around and get a W. by the end. Yeah. At this juncture. I will eat the L. Because I was. I did I did have some pretty nervous about him but this is still a worrisome plate profile. Here's the thing in in redraft single-season here. Would you be looking to maybe trade Robert? Sure because I think you could get you whatever you want. Yeah I mean, I. Think in Dynasty to is like. Whatever you want in dynasty I think. Redraft, it can get a premium pitcher with a bat thrown in I mean, you know the stack cast numbers are crazy. I mean eighty third percentile x eighty, six percentile. In hard hit percentage, but then you go down eight percents ione strikeout. percentile in win percentage and I mean th, this is in some ways the outfield equivalent of Albert where he in a in in some samples, he is just GonNa light the world on fire all samples he could be scary bad I think the Nice thing that was one of the reasons I kind of tempered my expectations a little bit on Robert is the fact that he's running. You love already. Yeah. Because I was afraid the white sox were not a team that stole last year And I was afraid that they wouldn't let him run these four for six on the basepaths. Seems to be like a pretty decent day. steeler obviously does have speed quite a bit of speed in that profile. And so. I think even when things aren't going well in, there will be times where things don't go. You'll at least get that speed and the defense is pretty darn good as well. The. Good and his. His face on that just just twitter search. Jimenez Lewis Robert The clip will come up. It was so great. I, loved allies face he's just like okay. Okay that's fine. Wasn't even mad like he just looked like. Fine I mean I. IF THEY'RE GONNA be this generation is Andreessen Bell, trae. That's GonNa be really fun for a really long time. Totally agree totally we got two pairs like that a Kunia and. All. The way they the way they play and have fun I I love it. I love it. Yeah Jimenez his and Robert 'cause. Don't mistake for those that maybe aren't familiar with their relationship. The look on his face was just like. You're crazy. It was not in pissed off or anger it was just like you're insane. Lane. Being annoyed at your little brother Yes exactly. Like are you really over here right now I could caught that dude but find do your thing you waste your energy I'm I'm cool I'm telling. You mentioned you know this could be a little bit. Mon- DESI S Desi in if you will. But it could also be Tateishi Teasean. Yuccas again, that was the guy that dvr. Nino. We're bringing up that point through about saying don't get too hung up on on what he doesn't do, which is a make a ton of contact. Make It. Make It. Blind make you blind excuse me to the fact that of what he can do, which is the power speed excellent now to his credit. He's walking more he's swinging less. Swing. Strike rate was never as crazy as as Roberts and swinging less outside zone this year. So he has actually shown some improvement but. I won't take an Ellen Robert Right now. And I would be open to making those trades though because I do think you can get a meant and if your speed is taken care of and you're not desperate for his speed than maybe cash that in now we're mentioned in all those great pitching outings. Some people are probably wondering why why wouldn't you mention Trevor Bauer through a one a one hitter in seven innings, which was a complete game because it's part of a double header. With three three walks nine strikeouts and he's been amazing. Yes he has I was saving for the section because I got him. Wrong. And he's pitching a lot more like guy who was chasing down. A CY young before Ian Kinzler hit him with a batted ball a couple years ago. Then the guy last year who was hooking the ball over the center-field wall and. Pitching to a four, forty, eight era and one twenty, five whip including a six, thirty nine with Cincinnati. Now I didn't think he was going to be that Guy I. Think he's GonNa be trash but I called him right handed Robbie Ray like that was my douse my com stood by that. Robbie Ray had has never been this good. and. bowers been off the charts. He's leading baseball in so many different things era point sixty eight. So close to a perfect dra. Whip point five, seven hits per nine two point seven he's leading the National League in. Fourteen point Oh strikeout per nine. Yes. Forty one in twenty six and a third. He's been excellent. No two ways around it as two shutouts which again that seventy and he does count as a shutout. As part of the double header. I got her actually both of his shutouts are seven innings but hey, they count as the rules that were point under. He's been awesome and you know. I knew the town was there. I didn't trust the volatility. This is this is the nerve racking thing about him though is because it can bounce. So wildly from four, forty, eight era last year that he'd completely earned to appoint sixty this year that he's earning pretty much to not that not that that's going to maintain but I mean he's pitching brilliantly. So I got Bauer wrong I don't think this one's GonNa turn South I think he's going to continue to pitch well this year. How do you feel about Bauer and where were you on him coming into this? I can't quite remember I was kind of sitting on the fence with him. Okay. Then you don't have to take I'll eat this crow by myself. You use it off to the side there. On any team so I'm not benefiting from this whatsoever. But I just kinda faded in for other starters in his area. I mean. The COP I used for him was a pitcher version of BJ UPTON. Oh Yeah. Because he is not going to hit or COMP. Yeah. He he he's the guy that. He he figures out something it's going well, and then for no apparent reason can make it better changes. No I can make it better and it's like Trav- you got it already did no I. Can make it better. Hang on one second. Yeah exactly. And so for that reason alone like I don't know that this will continue because I don't trust him. At all. He is he is the fantasy baseball equivalent of the spouse who cheats on you. Like things are going well in that all of a sudden. It's like why why did you do that? It makes no sense I. Had to do it exactly. So I trust him zero. that. Being said I. Mean He has been I mean look at the P. Vows on his pitch and I just healthy like. Bill and he throws a million of them, and so it's so hard for the hitter guests. When he is on in, you know multiple pitches are working at the same time. So I think this was I. think there was you know a thought that obviously this was in outcome in you know in the range of possibilities but it cert- art for me was the range of the possibilities were just so wild and varied that. I wasn't willing to dive in a regret it a little bit. Will I regret it in a month I don't know. Yeah. I mean that he you summit up perfectly but I was vehemently telling people to chill and not go crazy. So because I was advocating against him whereas you just kind of sitting on the fence I will eat that Allen again I think this is what I'm going to be able to come back around on necessarily now. One thing in this isn't to undercut what he's doing. He's certainly increased his spin quite a bit and there's been all that you know from him all the talk about like. How all these astros increase their spin when we do some tests here and he was pretty open about. Showing that you can increase spin very very easily in one particular way. Now, all of a sudden, he's one hundred percent Thailand fastball spending ninetieth, and curve. Spin. I'm just saying it's working though, but here's the thing. Even if he is doing that even if he is using something to get that grip. Everyone does it. So it doesn't like and I'm not saying that to justify it I'm saying it because. That's that's the way. The League is though like these poop stains, these guys have on their hats of stuff that we just. Mary is his poop stain hat. It's fine. So it's like it's just the accepted thing anyway. So even if you even if that is what he's doing and and that's what's helped him. Jump to this level, it's not gonNA stop. And and frankly I mean whatever I, it's fun watching him pitch. I will say that I don't agree with everything. He does he does some some idiot stuff, but I don't throw out the entire. Bauer experience because there are some great stuff, some of the videos, the content that he's. Shoes were the free Joe Kelley shoes were. But the content that he's creating and the access that he's giving to players. To himself and some of his teammates and friends is incredible and. I think you can do both you can. You can push back on him on some of the stuff that you've vehemently disagree with him on often non baseball stuff that that he really gets people round up about. So you can push back on that without completely throwing him out I I don't know I haven't seen anything and maybe I'm missing something and if I am feel free to tweet me about it but I haven't seen anything that suggests to me that he's a bad person. Just that he can be. A. At times and he's done some you know. When when he went after that one person who was trolling him that girl who was trillium? Part of it is talking to get hit. But at the same time, he has a platform he has to understand that his platform is is too powerful to wield like that. And so but Can I acknowledge that that's Dushi but then still see, hey, there's also some cool stuff that he brings to the table I don't know I'm torn on him because I know you bring along and there's some people that are just like I'm out total piece of garbage I hate him I think he's the worst person ever and I'm like. I don't know. I. Don't I don't a lot of money to charity to. Yes. And that doesn't inherent. You know that doesn't make you a good person either Yeah, I. Mean I think when I think we need to chill a little bit on judging people's character. Their. Worst moments and yeah ever allowing people we don't know like it's you know he's never been hitting a woman or anything like that. It's not like he's one of these guys I, mean yeah. Is He do she at times sure but you know so so I. Yeah. I was just about to say that just I, mean it's like like drew jokes aside like Yeah I've done some some. Things myself in. It happens like I know I. I made law. Serie for some of our terms today. That's true. That's true. That's When I called somebody that was being troll in Chat Dill Don one time in my chat just lost in. So I've been using that one for a while let's behaving. Like or in in a Dildo ask sort of way you don't WanNa do that you don't want to be donning I will say that. next one. This is all you. This is all you because I was nowhere near this. In fact, I was trolling you on the mookie Betts I. Don't want to say, Hey, but the mookie betts cold water that you were trying to throw he's been amazing three, zero, six, three, seventy, six, fifty, three, nine homers. Speak. Speak. For yourself what do you have to say for yourself young man. I was wrong like art. I. It's hard burden. It's like, yeah like I I you know. Stupid for me to say, he wouldn't be a top twenty outfielder I did have concerns. I don't think that those concerns were necessarily that of a bad process but just that he is just one of these players that could hit on the moon. A monster like yeah. You know. Do I still think that you know he may not run to the degree that we've seen the past that have made him. You know one of the best players or the best player in fantasy at times shirt I mean you know he's only got two stolen bases onto attempts that also applies to trout though too I think. Off Is You know he is trout in some ways you know maybe not exactly trout but he is you know of that level of caliber of a hitter is trying a lot of the good ways and. That alone makes him just an elite fantasy player and that I think maybe that is the the flaw in in what I was saying yeah I mean I don't know much more what else I can really say I'm wrong on mookie betts faded him a hard a looked like a really great call after three games. And you were taking your victory laps. At badly dude I nailed. He didn't hit a home run till. August. Come on. A regular seasons of Bro you know. You know where you lost me was the was the top twenty outfielder. If you just Kinda done the like top ten, it probably would have. Or? The new guy getting the giant because he got the giant deal and set new place. That although. You'll actually made me a like kind of back off a little bit. Oh, because he had the certainty, he had this certainly locked in and so it was like, okay well, maybe he will steal now. because. They didn't have to worry about getting her yeah, exactly. Yeah. That's a good call. Yeah. still not stealing you know a tremendous amount. But. Sorry. That's what you were. I'm sorry. About. Said perfect. So yeah I mean you can't steal when you're jogging around the basis that's Joe they don't allow you it. is No that sweet that someone did the other day whereas I can't believe the padres? Machado three million dollars to watch mookie betts round third you. Delirious. Man I was gonNA bring up Machado. But I don't WANNA I. I WANNA, take a w on him and he's in two twenty. It does have six homers though in two steals, but he just never gave me the warm and fuzzies I just. Another guy like our for me where I was just tap it on him. Yeah. I was just an shortstops so deep than I, but this is about taking else. So I don't want to sit here and try to tell myself now Dylan Bundy is another one I got I gotTa let you fly solo here on this one is this was actually a point of contention between us that I was ready To buy in on the on the Discount Flyer and you had your concerns about Dylan. Bunny talk to us about the man with a to forty eight era points point eighty whip I'm sure you were Geek that his one bad start this year came against your squad. They did their best say like I made you know after that Seattle second Seattle start where he pitched a complete game struck out ten. People were all cycles. Okay. Let's let's talk about the level of competition. So finally goes up against a good team in my giants. Get slack a little bit. They get knocked around fours were wild for four innings foreheads four runs four walks it would have been funny begun. The fourth strikeout healing three gives up a couple of homers in his first bump in the road you talking about competition though to Seattle to Oakland opens. Awesome. So he has he has beat up a good team twice but San Francisco does get them a bit. But Hey, even with the foreign four, the numbers have been off the charts Are you fully one eight hundred on him or still nervous more like ninety degrees him? Okay. So turning but you're not totally sane like let me dive in headfirst. Yeah I mean I think there. Let's talk about the good for you know I say I don't know how much I believe that. Yet the pitch mix is just I mean he is pitching backwards a lot of the time you know fastball percentage under forty percent where it's always been to sixty percent through the course of his career and I mean I think what I think. Is really benefiting from the fantastic catching. That is happening. In Los Angeles both guys Astro Astro in Saucy a really really good framers really really good game callers. Annemie and I think that is really helped I also think the fat that There's an obvious organizational influence on how he's been pitching You know I mean the orioles you know told him to go out there and throw like a starting pitcher throws. You know hit him with the fastball and then use your offbeat stuff whereas the angels are are really saying, Hey, no, your fastball isn't good dude. It's mean was the home run yeah. Machine was was the fastball now we'll say. Maybe, if they had like the new regime in Baltimore, might be able to develop pitching and they may have you know I, if they had developed Bundy from the start might have been different shirt but this is another checkmark against the Orioles as a pitching development organization. I'm willing to give a little like a little leeway since it is the new regime we'll see how they do with the pictures that they have control of from day one but man, another guy who leaves the instantly becomes markedly better. That's a tough scene for them. I is obviously going to be some aggression certain equator. Guy Yeah the question is, is he amid threes guy is the a Low Forest Guy. Out of the homers yeah I think as exactly what it is is it comes down I mean not only the homers but I mean he's done a really good job of limiting walks. So, when he does give up home run, it's not as. impactful. But it you're right. It does it does come down to can he keep the ball in the yard? Seattle again, this week though. The schedule lines up. Oh well. So I mean. I. Know that I don't know that it's actionable I don't I I mean I don't. Know if you've got Dylan bundy writing at out. In hoping he continues with it but I don't think you can go buy him. No I wouldn't either because somebody's GonNa want a man. Yes. But, you can't pay it I mean if someone comes to you and says, listen I want Dylan Bundy, I need to in Bundy I'm GonNa give you a top twenty top twenty five hitter. Yeah, Slam Dunk City. But I just don't know that anybody's -arily going to do that unless their offense you just so loaded that they can afford to give up. Something like that. But. Ultimately I think you're just standing pat no matter what you're doing Dylan Bundy and hoping that it continues by donning was option and I think it's because of next week. So He's not GonNa Pitch and that should make him super cheap and NFC if you WANNA hold them for the week, you know throw a will be. Yeah you will be holding him for a Dead Week I. think that that settles at that. He's not gonNA pitch next week. With. The five games that they have all right two more Walker Bueller in Ross stripling on the same team. We're both eating something here now, buehler. Was Somebody that you had as your number one but then you did peel back on that because it was clear that he wasn't going to be ramped up and. Once Garrett Cole baby was born. We knew he wasn't going to miss time exactly, which was also part of part of your reasoning there but this is he still has a five, twenty one year. A is a one sixteen whip though and the home run rates through the roof wake their reasons to be fine, and this is your version of by the end of the new come back and be like I shouldn't have even taken that he's going to be fine but we are nineteen innings into a six months. Sixty game, season. And it isn't looking good. Where do you stand on? You'll right now knowing that a to forty, two point, four homer per nine will not stand but everything else is kind of it's kind of met right now. Yeah it is Kinda mad and it's brutal for. My main event team that's doing fairly well. And really all it needs is some strikeout. And he's not even doing at least doing that and and hadn't. It had the are you could live with that. But yeah, you're not even getting the KS right now Yeah. So I mean there are a few concerning things. The amount of ground balls he gets has gone down the fly balls are going up. which is not what you WANNA see special in Kinda this live ball era we have going on which in spite of the fact that secretly put humidors in places. The ball still. Yeah. The boss still flying he he's walking too many guys. I mean. On faith alone I think he's going to get it together. This year, right yeah. This year I tend to agree with you. You know the velocity is fine. The whip is fine like I. said I mean it's a one sixteen whip like he actually is giving you one positive aspect for fantasy and it is a good whip. But everything else is is man or worse I mean. The loss, he's fine. The the spin is great. You know ninetieth percentile and curve spin. percentile. In fastball spin. You know I think he's just making mistakes. and getting again, hit art on them and you know maybe this is kind of you know struggles of a a young pitcher and maybe we thought that he was going to just volt into this elite category and in stay there, and now he's coming back down to Earth a little bit. But ultimately I think may not be what you paid for germs of drafting him but I can't imagine I would I would project that he's A Like you know mid to low threes guy rest the way with twenty seven, twenty, eight, percent strikeout rate. That apply. Yeah. I think it'll be fine like what you'll do. You'll be bombed by the because you're hoping for sub three, you've already eight. Nine thousand nine hundred five year and no wins either. Dodger like that you're the one. One of the main things that you're expecting is to get some dubs. Here's one. Let's let's say the team needs matchup your speeds fine. Would you Lou Bob Forum? release Robert for Bieler. Yes. That's fair. I think I would do that too and I gotta be honest. You might be able to finagle a hitter on it to. An. Extra header for for a lesser pitcher with the two for two. And do something like that. But yeah, I'm not. I'm not overly concerned that viewers like. Garbage I. Think he's just working through things. It's unfortunate because it is such a big part of his season already with four starts but I think he'll finish fine. You know the projections have like a high threes. With that, one seventeen to one eighteen whip type, and then they have the strike outs getting back on track all of them have them with at least nine and a half strikeouts per nine ranging up to ten and a half for zips. So I think we'll see something like that I think the er a will be better I think there's reason to believe that bureau will get on track and be closer to like a three, four a and be fine but. I understand why you gotta kind take a now here because he was your guy for a while and even when you backed off, you're still. A BIG FAN and it hasn't panned out. And I'M GONNA I'm GonNa take fat on on stripling. You know it's to a lesser degree than that. Bueller? But I was I could shut up about him. I was so excited that he was getting a full time role and he hasn't been good. It's a five sixty, one era in a one thirty, three whip right now he started off. All right, but he really just hasn't been good now in in the last three starts the first two. The first one was excellent against the giants and then against the D. Backs it was solid I watched that he kinda survived and there was definitely a little bit like, okay. That wasn't great and then He's stolen away against the padres because they unloaded on Garrett Richards and he didn't have seven strikeouts, but it was five and two thirds, four runs, and then these last two against the padres and the Frick and mariners of all teams he's been blitzed and it's been five homers in those seven and two thirds that's doing a lot of the damage and right now the fastball command. that. We expect stripling isn't there. So I'm GonNa take an L. on him right now to the point where I'm concerned that he could lose his GIG. And they send them back to the bullpen if somebody returns Allies that he hasn't already especially the fact that they already sent gunslinger down t I was Gonna say either Gone Flynn or what's Alex Woods Situation? I mean perpetually Erg yeah I know that but I'm just saying is going to have one of his little blips of health here. Let's see latest news on him simulated game on Tuesday. We don't know how that went. It was slated for the news came out on early Tuesday. That he was gonNA throw simulated game that day we don't know what happened but yeah with Selena lurking. I'm nervous that another bad outing from strip is gonNa cost them that Gig and I gotta be honest I would understand. Because, like I said, the fastball just isn't there. He's not dominant guy throws like You know kind of like ninety, one, ninety four, but he usually puts it wherever you want and and can get whiffs on it because of that he gets Colorado at home this weekend I think that's a huge start for the future for the immediate future of Ross stripling and you know I. I need to see something here and You know he's still not walking guys but too many homers, not enough strikeouts and if you were invested him to the degree that I was, which is like everywhere my bad. But hopefully, you got savante Frankie montages Max freed to counterbalance because I I did hit on those guys you like I through in some of the hits that I had to. I'm taking it now, but I don't forget about my dubs to. He was a loss earl he has to to this point and I'm GONNA eat that and I hope it turns around but I'm I'm I'm nervous. I'm very nervous on this one I mean the the hard part and the beauty of this season is that It's such a small sample. We can be like you know, take the loss, but it can all turn around like we have these caveats exactly going to be. Nice for us, but also at the same time infuriating. Yup Yup without without a doubt and so. We're not trying to just. Fence it on all of these like Hey, well, we could also it's just acknowledging the reality of it. All is that some of these could change on a dime and we'd be like, oh remember when we took that L. whoops. But that's where we are right now on these guys some that we had joint wrongness on that we took on individually we'll revisit them at the end of the year but you know sometimes we get some Mrs maybe maybe next time we'll talk about some of the dubs and take some victory laps but. Just great talking with you stay safe from everything. Hopefully, nothing changes for the negative as far as the fire situation goes and again, everybody who is being threatened by those either very directly or on the cusp in in California area. Please be safe and we're hoping that everything turns out for you just have a great weekend man.

Podcast (7/23/20)

"Good Morning, boomer! How're you, Meg? Gee, I wake up this morning obviously with the news to Marcus Stroman, thinking that the mets last year, and they're a little run there toward gender the season where they brought him in. Pretty Damn good because they had arm arm arm, taking the mound, and now out of all those guys from last year there are two of them left, and that's obviously Jacob. degrom and Steven Mats and this to go along with what I think. People are describing as a shaky bullpen. Hopefully it'll be better this year than it was last year, and really not the way you WanNa go into the season, and it's really unfortunate because it know all the things that were going on all the moves that were being made and everything else. Injuries store going to be a factor and the fact that. Marcus took a ball off the calf in his latest. Scrimmage game with the new. York mets, and now has a torn calf. Him I really don't know I don't know how bad it is i. don't know what kind of you know a grade tear. It is, but if it is somewhat significant. We see him for at least a month. By month is like four months in this. Sixty game season will missing. A month is like missing the season, and it's not as if the mets have the depth of the Yankees. There's no question about that so. That was a really that was. That was tough to take yesterday. Because you know we're all excited because we have a lot of really top end quality, young players, we all. It's a likeable team. It's a great team in terms of. How the fans took to them, especially towards the the bottom third of the year last year, and everybody was hoping that this would be their year to bounce back and now when you take a look at what their starting rotation, it looks like and you compare it to the teams that they are going to be playing because of this regional sports schedule on the fact that they're playing, AL teams I can make an argument if you took Jacob degrom. They would have the worst rotation of any team that they're going to play against now. Maybe maybe a couple of teams. Aren't quite as bad, but with Jake in their. You like to thank. Every fifth start is going to be a potential for a win, but after that I have no idea what to expect from Stephen Matt's Rick Portillo. Who knows Michael Walker? Who knows I mean this is? This is I can't even think of a worse situation right now than the mets find themselves in comes to their starting rotation, and we all know it is about pitching in this league that always has been about pitching in this league except of course when you have. The Yankees seem to hit five home runs every game every time. They're out, but this is. This is not good this. I'm a positive guy I'd like to think I'm a positive guy. When it comes to looking at these teams and can't waiting and can't wait to see the young players and see how they do, but man. This has the potential of a disastrous start and I hope that doesn't happen man. I don't WanNa be fifteen games into the season and have these guys I don't know. Four and eleven. You know five and ten something like that I don't i. don't WanNa. See that I'm afraid that that's what we are going to see. Yeah, I mean I don't also want to overreact to move stroman, not being there. It's not good I don't like the depth I don't like what's behind. These guys losing syndergaard end strowman sort of look at it like that, both those guys not being there and not just losing Marcus Stroman, but remember now marcus stroman was and an average pitcher when he came over for. For, the mets, last year wasn't great talk. They won every start that he was in, but the expectation for him this year was he was going to bounce back. You is going to be very good for them. He was going to fill that hole that was left by Zack Wheeler leaving, and of course Noah syndergaard being hurt and you're not going to see him. Have that opportunity, but you know this is not losing Jacob, degrom. I mean let's get real about it. I didn't know what to expect from Marcus Stroman. Big Of A and we talked about this just yesterday the day before there was as big a question mark on Marcus Stroman as there was any of these other guys going into the season whether it was Stephen Matt's Michael Waka Report Selah. We don't know so. That's the way to maybe look at it. Glass half full. If Jacob degrom back, situation turned into something really a few days ago, that would have been the death. Blow for this team I still think that they can overcome the loss of Stroman. The issue is bodies at this point. The back end of the rotation you felt like you had at least a professional pitcher being your fifth starter at some point when stroman was healthy. Now you don't know what the hell you're going to have. An and the question is Lugo. Take him out of the bullpen. Make him a starter again or not. Now you've got this where it's just so maddening to me that you can't count on these guys in the back end of the bullpen. If you could. It's a no brainer. Because Edwin has comes over the post closer in baseball, and then you've got Jerry's familiar coming over with the reputation that he has. If those guys, you could count on adding Betances as well. I'm fine taking Lugo out of there, but what? I remember last year is there's one guy in that bullpen that I could trust and that guy was Seth Lugo. Lugo and I am not mentally ready to pull him out of there and stick him in the rotation and leave it up to those guys so maddening about this. It should a no brainer and I don't know what they're gonNA. End Up doing I think they're gonNA end up leaving them in the bullpen. Well, you know and I know it's probably Is probably the right thing to do, but I also know just how important starting pitching is especially pitchers that can go into the sixth and seventh inning to get to those bullpens that. Are Lockdown bullpens like the Yankees have, but this is really I. Mean Look I don't know what to tell you. What? I heard it yesterday on Joe and Evan, and they were talking about it. I was like well. You know what here we go again. And this is really really unfortunate, and it's not like I expected mark to go out there and win the Cy Young, but I did expect him to be a legitimate starting pitcher who has had success in this league, and because of the regional nature of the sport this year, and because of the teams that we are playing in the American League East. He has. With those teams so I figured. At least maybe five hundred pitcher. At least he'll eat up the innings that that are that are required each and every time you go out, and at least he'll go out and compete now that he's not there, and because they they lost wheeler, and they, of course as you said loss syndergaard to injury. I mean it is just like you are going into this with. Even Steven Matt's is a question mark, I mean come on every single one of them. Other than Jake degrom is a question mark now, and you could make an argument that as it stands right now with the uncertainty of all of it that could be the worst rotation in the NL used maybe better than a Miami Mall. That's about it. Yeah I mean that that's about it. I I I'm facing a better pitcher every single day with the exception of one Jake degrom is out there and. Grandma. is going up against daughters. You know they're going to be at least close to what he is. Well sure shares are Cole. I mean guys like that. I mean that are going to be right exactly so for sure now I I will say that the low risk reward guys that were brought in by Brodie van wagon. There is a high reward still attached to them. You can't dismiss that especially in a six game season in a game of baseball where you know someone like Rick Portillo. Especially think about porcelain. It's bad year. Goodyear bad. You're good. Your last year was a bad year. He's going to the National League and he's someone I can see filling that void. It's no lock. There's no doubt about it, but let's not dismiss the fact that Portillo could put together a pretty damn good year for the mets this year, and I'm actually expecting him to and Steven. Matt's I've seen so much inconsistency from him. It's hard for me to be positive, but maybe this is it. Maybe this is the year Michael Walker. I. Got to see it. I mean I. Really do need to see that there is a you remember when brody. Funny. Why one of these things that he should have never said when he became general manager, like he said a lot of crazy stuff, mixed metaphors and he guaranteed things. There's just crazy one of the things that he said in the beginning. was you know we have to eliminate the if's? There's a lot of if's on this roster and we need to eliminate the he came in. And made more if than I've seen. The mets have. Now it's not all his fault. It isn't but when you lot of it is like Jed Lowrie was has been an if and then a no, are you bringing to guys who are as big ifs as you could possibly imagine in porcelain and walk now I. Know He didn't expect them to be in this position. He expected them to be depth starters fifth starters six start someone goes down. They ended up being in the rotation. But you know those are big IFS, Keeping Stephen Matt's around is a major. If I mean even Marcus, stroman turned into. More of an if then anything else you, an assessment is if Robinson, Cano, in if Dom Smith is iffy. Is He? GonNa play today. Where is he going? Play is just so many of these unanswered questions on the mets roster. You'd risked you just don't know how it's going to go, and you wouldn't be surprised if they ended up winning their division or ended up going the worst team in it. Our Commission has to be adjusted. has to be adjusted. There's no question about it, and my optimism is certainly adjusted downward I and I'm usually guy that. I! Think that the glass is half full. and. I want to fill it to the top. There's no question about it, but when you lose. Are syndergaard now stroman. That's three fifths of last year starting rotation that at the end of the year gave the mets a chance every time one of those guys stepped on the mound to win the ballgame, and the younger players starting to come around started to have exciting moments when they traded for Stroman. It was almost like a shot in the arm. Like Hey, we're still in this out of it and. and. We all know why he made the trade. He made the trade for Stroman because he knew he was going to lose. We are and they're. We're not GONNA pay him, so it was a moment in time where they had an opportunity. Unfortunately, it didn't work although it. The team was exciting, and it became very likable, but I'm telling you right now. With this starting rotation away, it looks and the history. There's one guy that you can count on, and that's why I would not be surprised if they put Lugo out of the bullpen. I don't think they will. I know he wants to be a starter I I'd feel more comfortable with him. Being Star I believe because right now. There are nothing but question marks those guys. No no request for Marco without a doubt, one hundred percent and those guys in the bullpen. There's a lot of question marks there as well. Let's not forget as much as I love delicate dance in that signing. He's coming off a major injury. Tear the Achilles, so you got to see him perform in a mets uniform, and it's not a lock him coming out of that Yankees bullpen and he's going to be great, but those guys have to be great. If the mets are going to have any success now because I'm not counting on the rotation now I it could end up being better than we think, but I'm not gonNA count on it if they're going to have any success. Success this year they've gotta hit the hell out of the ball pita. Lonzo's gotTA. Do the thing again you an assessment. This has to be a massive thorn in the side of opposing pitching staffs as a d. h. you're going to have to have Jeff McNeil. That spunky, almost hitting four hundred guy again all that stuff has to happen again and the bullpen has to be great now if you tell me that Edwin. Jerry's familiar in Batanes. Lugo great that I then then I'm feeling good about it, but that's that's the problem. I'm trying to create the scenario in which it could work, but there is no fate essentially blind faith that you're having I'm not saying that's going to happen, but that's how the mets can be good. Because right now when I look at the rotation pass Jake it's, it's it's rough. It is rough. Hey, today's July twenty third I'm telling. Telling you. It'll be the dodgers and the Yankees and the world series market down. We all know it. Both teams are loaded. Mookie Betts just got his new contract, and by the way, if you compare mookie Betts as contract, which is one hundred percent, all guaranteed by the way, and he got a sixty five million dollars signing bonus to that Patrick Mahomes Patrick Mahomes only got ten million dollar signing bonus and Patrick. Mahomes. It's about four hundred and fifty million dollar contract, and then there are certain things that he can do each and every year to get over five hundred million, the likelihood of him seeing the end of that contract is very unlikely given the history of the NFL mookie Betts is going to get every single three, hundred sixty five million dollars, and he got that sixty five million dollar contract in a year, in which is twenty seven million dollars contract has been whittled down to ten million, so he'll make seventy five million dollars this year in a sixty game season. And good for mookie Betts because of course the situation in Boston he should have never had to leave there now. Unfortunate now to the great organization in a city. That's going to be a lot of fun for him. He's a superstar in baseball. So I love to see that a second largest contract of course in major league baseball history only behind Mike Trout, but takes I was seeing yesterday really making me angry I the Oh and the baseball. Owners said they were poor. I saw a lot of that stuff. In multiple tweets first of all the dodgers are never going to be poor there. The dodgers you look at their TV deal. It is astronomical and they've been winning that. Nobody ever thought that the L.. A. Dodgers were going to have financial issues, and then also on top of it. They're not handing. mookie Betts three hundred sixty five million dollars tomorrow. I mean they're going to pay him sixty five million, okay, but not three hundred sixty five million dollars, and that's different, and you start to think about the health of the sport and the health of the franchise as we get back into more normal baseball seasons, and he's going to be worth every penny so. So, yeah! It was a Lotta money that he was handed. But it's the dodgers, and that's what we expect. We never thought when this thing was going on. Even though the Yankees have been taking hits, there's no doubt about everything's been taken a hit. We never thought the Yankees. We're going to go in the red. They weren't going to go under I. Mean they've been able to take care of their employees? For the most part as far as we know, they've done a great job through because the Yankees and the dodgers are are not that far behind where the Yankees are as far as the health of a franchise, so it just I don't know. When things crop up like that the residual effect from the players, association and Major League Baseball's fight when you see contracts like this. It's the fact. Still remain baseball players. Association would be happy about a contract is. Given, the the circumstances one hundred percent. It's like now now. Here's another interesting when you start talking about contracts and start talking about leverage. Start talking about you know. What does the team going to do with a particular player? Well? Our Guy Jamal Adams basically had something handed to him on a silver platter yesterday, so if he doesn't WanNA play for the New York jets and he wants to. Use, what is happening over Great Britain in regards to a? Investigation to ambassador Woody Johnson in comments that he's supposedly made which he is obviously come out tonight putting quarter, according to Jamal everything that Woody Johnson said or has been accused of saying, he said. Basically. He is just say yeah, he's guilty. We gotta get rid of them. This is like a thing that the jets did not want to have to deal with and especially under the current circumstances of the political landscape within sports and player as. Deemed as he sees himself as a running lot as a player so. You now have a `nother situation that the jets have got to deal with and whether or not. Bomb shows up for training camp. Who knows and when he does show up. It is going to be awfully awkward. Given his comments yesterday. Yeah, so a couple of things one. You're right. We these are these are allegations that were made against what he Johnson as we have found out before you know rushing to judgment on whether or not something happened or didn't happen isn't smart if he did say it, that's really bad. Everybody knows that that's not breaking news. We all know that everybody shares that opinion. If Forty Johnson indeed said those things. That's really. Really really bad, and you'll have to suffer the consequences of that now. As far as Jamal, Adams goes as Jamal Adams ever dealt with Woody Johnson, has ever even been around Johnson's been around. Okay, and who has been there Christopher Johnson has gone out of his way to make Jabali Adams comfortable every frigging turn and I know that to be a fact. Now you WANNA complain about Christopher. Johnson's ability to run a franchise and how the Johnsons on their tenures jets owner is not been great. Sure we can have that discussion, but as it pertains to. Jamal Adams I know for a fact that Christopher. Johnson has tried his best to make him as comfortable as possible to Nelson me appreciates him. All the time reached out during that trade deadline. Thing personally multiple times come up to my office. Let's talk. Let's figure this out. He has been there at every turn to make this guy feel wanted loved everything else because he does indeed care about him deeply wants him to be a jet. So that's the thing that pissed me off a lot about this now. What he Johnson will put that aside I. I think that's a totally different thing, but here's Jamal Adams acting as if like woody Johnson was around him, didn't care about him has been terrible owner for the jets Jamal Adams has been there when the reality is Jamal Adams and what he I don't even know if they've ever spoken to one another day, probably been I'm sure what he's been over there. At some point over the last two years, but really Christopher Johnson has been the guy who's been dealing with consent, and has been bending over backwards for a lot of different people and. Try to reveal the franchise and hopefully doing it the right way and getting the right people in there running including Joe. Douglas but you knew you knew that you knew the second. That story came out his twitter. Account what he said about it. Yeah, exactly yeah, and he just and. He probably I don't want. I shouldn't assume but I. Let's just say this. I, it's not far fetched to think that Jamal. Adams was pleased when he saw this story percents because it helped his cause. Now I'm not saying he's not offended by the things that were said in there and upset by that, but also I. It's not far fetched to think that he goes. Wow, this is just another thing that's going to help me get out of here. Because how could I possibly play for an organization? That's got a guy associated. It's going to say those things so I mean I don't know I. I'm not in any way defending woody Johnson of what he said was true, but it's just the reality is true. We don't know. He actually came out in either put out a statement, so so so did the jets. We also have to understand that. We are in a presidential election year. Woody Johnson happens to be one of the bigger supporters for Donald Trump financially. That's why he's got that job that he has right now. They they also. Were claiming last week that Woody Johnson supposedly putting pressure on the British government to force them or not, the not the force them, but try to direct them towards one of Donald Trump's golf courses over there in Britain, so they could have the open championship there, so all of that stuff is coming now because we're living in a sewer pit of a society that is just absolutely trying to take everybody down, and and it's it's all now coming together and Jamal Adams season opportunity to get the hell out of here again. Jet Fan Loves Jamal. Adams Jet Fan thinks that he's a great player Christopher Johnson who has not been accused of anything loves Jamal Adams Right. Joe Douglas and so does the Adam Gates. Jamaa Adams is manufactured this whole thing in his brain and to me. It's really unfortunate because the fan base loves them. The team actually does love him. He's playing under a certain financial circumstance that you know look when you're drafted high in the draft like he was. There are certain steps that you have to go through now. Here's the one thing I will say. Whether he is really truly committed to forcing the jets to trade him. You know we'll find out because I this also maybe a away for the jets just end up paying just. Just the perception of the whole thing. We're GONNA. Pay You. You're going to be the highest paid safety. We're all this guaranteed money, and you're going to be with the jets and Blah, blah. Blah Blah Blah and you know given what Jamal Adams said yesterday if he now signs a contract with the jets, just total fraud. Total Fraud Right Yep so yeah, I mean. Let's if this is about not playing for this organization. Let's see I. I don't know what the jets are GonNa do I don't know what the negotiations have been like, but I would love to see them put in front of him. The richest contract that a safety has ever seen the see if he sticks to his guns or not, that would be a great call of the bluff. It really would be going to be I mean if he signs it. He's going to get crushed by a lot of people because he's just full of Baloney I. Haven't said that in a long time. Baloney! I was thinking about this. And you know our our co worker, Joe Beningo, God love them. You have this what Johnson Jamal Adams thing now. You have the stroman injury syndergaard into injury, and it's the medicine, the jets and here we go, we want one's getting ready to start the season. The other one's getting ready to start training camp, and you have to major issues or a number of major issues for both teams that are negative that are going to impact these teams in in different ways. And I was just thinking the show yesterday thinking man, I'm telling you I'M A. A Fan, too, but I mean. How many more hits to the head can you take well if you're Joe Beningo and you are a dyed-in-the-wool jet and met fan well. At least he's got the knicks right. You can always fall. You always fall back on next week. I mean think about this get. We think about this just, can you? You're wordsmith. Is there any way that you could put into words like the last twenty four hours? In Jet Fan? freaking disaster, grow freaking disaster, eight, seven, seven, three, three, seven, sixty, six, sixty six. It is boomer and Geo on the fan. CBS Sports, network and radio DOT COM each the morning show with boomer Asya in Gregg Giannotti, boomer and Geo Jerry. RECCO is with us. They were not playing ball last night in new. Jersey, the literally game is Jerry was out there. Just Boston is asked man. You know like mowing lawns and. Fields and all of a sudden the skies opened up and that was that. The tractor. Still though man, you know you're doing the you're doing the work. No one else is doing the work. You're doing the work. Out from a lot of the dads yesterday I, got there really early and I was ready to rock, and then the monsoon yet right so hopefully it does not happen tonight with the Yankees and the nationals, because that would straight up suck, and I know that we've waited a long time, and what's one more day one more day to me? I wouldn't. I would not take that well tonight because I am prepared for baseball tonight and we'd better get it for crying out loud with coal and Sherzer and couches. Wondering. He should give the weather forecast. There's no way it is conceivable. That baseball could be played I, but the chance of thunderstorms fought to great. I believe there's GonNa be thunderstorms in the forecast. Every major American city will baseball. It's going to be played from now until the end of October. You may be able to and I. Stress may be able to squeeze in a game or two. All right so jerry is here with an update. What's going on, Jerry? We're brought to you by flagging anthem performance gear, visit, flag and anthem DOT COM. Yeah, the sixty games sprint opens tonight. Yankees nationals the fan. They'll be in Washington. DC, we're going to go glass half full and just assume that they're going to play. Because we got a great pitching matchup for you in Garrett Cole and Max Sherzer. Here is call anticipating this day for sure a lot. We're excited as a nice train ride. It's raining a little bit right now. We're getting settled and getting acclimated to kind of the new environment and I'm I'm stoked I'm so I'm already like I'm sleeping stove about that. Yes, having trouble sleeping now will be a different environment. We know this. We've seen it with the exhibition games that having been said he will be fired up. I'm sure it'll be there for a number of personal reasons, and you know just. What a wonderful opportunity to kind of lead the game into existence here in two thousand twenty, as a team were thrilled, and we're not honor and I know yesterday we were talking about some different mark, certain benchmarks in numbers for the season. You Use Fan Duel Greg I went on bed mgm today and I got a couple of numbers for you, so the over under for Wins Garrett Cole Jacob degrom. What do you think they are? I will say eight and a half. Low six and a half, okay. I thought that was really low and. boomer, you're asking about home runs yesterday, and so I went, and I looked for Pete Alonzo and Aaron Judge Aaron judge. When now this is a different number. It was the same for Colon degrom different number for judging Alonzo. WanNa Guess. Eighteen and a half. What do you think gee? I'm going. I'M GONNA. Say It's lower than that. I'm going to say it's sixteen and a half. You're right on its seventeen and a half for Alonzo only fifteen and a half for judge now, maybe taking into account his injury history, right? But so those are the numbers for the oval. UNDIS- that I looked at for this hour. They got a short porch over. Stadium that he can go opposite appeal all to. All Yeah. Up, Oh Babo and let's let's make it all happen. Here as Aaron Boone how about this coal and Sherzer opening night not bad I. think it'll be emotional for fans that are huge fans of each team, but I think it'd be emotional for sports, fans being able to see baseball return and see that kind of marquee matchup. YEA, absolutely! Emotionally allowed and put on a good Chil- you kidding me man when they play the national anthem, and those guys are standing out there, and there's no fans in the stands I. Do I do believe I don't know about crying but I'm Gonna I will be emotional. Yeah, I'm going. I will not be emotion. I will be fun you. I will actually be at the ball field actually again so I'll have this game on dvr. I will not. Be Cool to see no. No, it'll be cool to see but I feel like. I saw the other night. I watched a couple exhibition games I feel like we're back in the groove a little bit, so it's a little different also. Yes I watched some giants dodgers third day loser. Watch them the royals astros, so it's kind of like our. We've seen. The only emotion. I have right now depression when it comes to the mets. I understand I. Got I'll get to them in a second? Let me just get you Max. Shirley. No I more boon in terms of how far could call go? He could go to one hundred pitches. How about that? We'll see I mean we'll kinda. You know talk with him. You know tonight and tomorrow, and then obviously just kind of get a sense of where he's at that games unfolded. You know, try and really pay attention to to what we're seeing, but yeah, it's conceivable that he could be in that ninety two rancher and Edison's. They bring up the mets you. You can skip ahead to Luiz row Haas I'll take a second until you after the Yankees play the nationals you've got the giants and the dodgers and Yes, Clayton Kershaw Johnny. Cueto is the star of the starting pitchers tonight. An mookie Betts that twelve year extension there reported three hundred sixty five million dollars, not too shabby as for your meds. Yes, the news on Marcus Stroman not great I guess the good news from manager Luiz row. House will not have to go onto the knife I now. I heard a non surgical sources. Now he's A. He's a tear. Hasn't the on the left Cap. So now he's a week to week. Thing so that's that's the approach that we're taking a at my first thought. When I saw this here we go. These guys haven't been encamped. That long done a jogging. One story today says this happened after taking a line drive to the calf. And so it's a weird one for sure and row house even believes because even earlier yesterday. They said it was just tight from being hit I guess, and then it was later on in the days. Yeah, it's a little bit of a tear. He says he could actually go out there. The problem is movement this Detroit. Just moving where the challenge is getting off the mound and different things like that and you know it's just really important. These guys He's a fighter. Who wants to go and you know it's important that that you know he's not gonNA start in that rotation fraud in the in the season. All right now moving is is important. I never thought it was but moving something. I think he was meaning mobility, and you know feeling. The buns I feel like they think he could go out and pitch. He's going to be limited in what he can do off the mound, so it's whatever it's not a good sign. I, mean there are stories written might miss the whole season because of this here that I think you know what let's reevaluating two or three weeks and you never know. Maybe he could be back for the back half of the season. We'll see to you. Guys point about now. What would the rotation between him and Syndergaard? Here's row Haas on. The line, mentioning the name of Guys I've been stressed out. You know to be potential stars, so the guys that we have that can come in and do that and also all our relievers. We like our debt. Pigeon, dive and I. I think what we had having cap is. Definitely, can you know put us up there? From the competitive stuff stamp degrom Matt's Portillo will go the first three games of the season against the braves starting tomorrow Robert Gilman We'll start the season on the injured list with tightness in his tricep so more and more wonderful news there and angels outfielder. Mike Trout did tell the media Wednesday he will play His wife is due to give birth the first week in August. Not sure exactly how that's GonNa go when he leaves, and when he comes back, but he's going to at least start the season. You got the League in the Players Association discussing again now. Making the playoffs sixteen team. Yeah, ten, which is interesting, doesn't season start tight? Yes. The agreement the agreement has to be done before the first pitch tonight. I mean now. If, the game is rained out then. They obviously have until tomorrow. My sense of if they are talking about it. I believe that they will get it done well. That's all tomorrow because you got the dodgers and giants. So. Yes, they are. They're talking about it. They'll get it done some time today. But we will see so. That's up for discussion to and also for discussion is where the hell did the Blue Jays. Play, because Toronto is not allowed to have them. And now Pittsburgh said no after they had an agreement I guess the State Health Department, said sorry, that's not going to happen. They're supposedly talking to four other ballparks in the idea of just playing on the road the whole season, even as a home team is certainly a possibility, and they don't want to play in any Minor League Baseball stadiums right, that is been. Like it well, they didn't want buffalo the player. I shouldn't say that and training facility. They don't want either Dad's Dunedin in Florida and they also have one in Virginia that I was reading about, but I guess I. Don't I don't know. The players didn't want buffalo after they made that agreement. So I. Don't know I will say they might just play on the road. The whole time which would be interesting I mean play in another city. You're still on the road, but at least you have a home base. But how does that gotTa Change Competitive Balance Though, doesn't it? Because they're playing on the road the whole time, the teams that play the Blue Jays the most are going to have more home games than everybody else right aside from batting first instead of second. You're exactly right. They're still at home in their homes. While the interesting, the interesting thing is they start. Their season on the road at the Red Sox then they go to Tampa, and then they go to Washington yeah. That's what it looks like to me anyway. Yeah, they don't I. Don't think they have a home game. Hold on! The right they start the twenty four. Th at the raise is what it is three games at the raise three games at the nationals, and then their home versus the nationals the twenty ninth thirtieth. There you go wherever they're. Figuring out though I heard that they were going to be able to play if they play the Yankees, the red sox that they would just stay and play and they would be the home team in Yankee Stadium and Fenway What address asked her. This is ridiculous. I mean what happened. I, mean the Pittsburgh things sound like it was going to happen. Totally fell apart well. The the Pennsylvania Governor Knicks that. And the. Government overall the federal government up. There Knicks them staying there because they didn't want teams coming into Toronto I so there's they're having a hard time finding out where to play and Jerry's. Jerry's I think. Solution may be the way that they are on the road all the time, and when they're supposed to be the home team against the teams that they're playing, they will be the home team even though they're visiting their stadium. Man That's tough. I mean they're never going to be home. They're never gonNA see their families there in every. Oh, they weren't gonNA anyway though. Foot. No, I'm just saying in Toronto though I mean it's. It's one thing, but now you're going to be on the road, so but think about it. I mean if you lease had a home base, you can figure that out. It's a lot easier now. You're on the road every single game. About want to think about something so the hockey teams leave on Monday the twenty four to go to their respective bubble, so the Eastern Conference, Toronto the Western Conference go to Edmonton. Two teams are are going to these cities. And two teams are going to end up playing in the Stanley Cup. Those two teams will have left their home. Cities on July twenty fourth, and if the Stanley Cup finals go, seven games will not be back home until October tenth. Let's very similar to the NBA. Yeah I I'm saying but that that's what's going on in those respective sports. You know the Toronto Blue Jays is. They're not going to be staying at Nice places and everything, but if are, but we waited brings you this by being a home team in an away stadium. That's the way they're going to have to do if they don't make the playoffs at sixty days out, yeah, right and I get it, but it's also different when everybody's going to the same thing in the league. As opposed to your the only team going through that and everybody else you're playing gets the luxury of going back to their homes so weird. That's the thing. Yeah, just adds to it. You guys mentioned the Woody Johnson. Just a couple of other things from the NFL the League says if fans are allowed into stadiums, masks will be required and I know there's a lot of places and teams that have not made those decisions yet or I. Guess of Your Season Ticket holder in certain places. You still have no idea what's going on as we are now heading towards August Antonio, Brown wrote an instagram Wednesday. How much he wants to be back into the League yes, here's here's the quote This is to league. The quote is the fact that you refuse to provide a deadline and the reason for the fact you won't resolve. Your investigation is completely unacceptable. He continued I demands. You provide me clarity on the situation immediately. If you really care about my wellbeing, my legal team continues to ask, and you provide no answers. How is it that the leakages dragged its feet on any investigation chooses on players, and we just have to sit here in limbo. Be total pain in the ASS team they play for. Cell educate them and continue to placate them until we make them happy, so they can play make their millions. There's really nothing going on in football right now, and they spend eight hours staring at a whiteboard. PUT IT! How do you know they're not? How do you know they're not doing? How do you know that they're not make sure that they know everything that's gone on, and they know all the accusations, and they know all the the arrest warrant like he got arrested. I was just Robert Costing. What a moving moving guy or something or Young and those videos out there of him screaming at the cops and the horrible things he was saying and then yelling at the mother of his children in front of the children I mean. The Guy has been a a full blown masks. I mean the things he said to Mike Mayock I mean my Lord. You can go on and on and on by the way him or Kanye West Man, they are one and the same in my mind right now I mean really they are. They are right on the same plane. I think. Is probably in like the worst of it and Antonio Brown has seen the worst of it and so I think he's like in a commonplace Antonio and Congress is not but Antonio Brown also remember two days ago, said he was retired again in focusing on his rap career so two days ago, he was completely retired walking away from the game that was it and now he screaming at the NFL. Tell me I can play. Some people do change their mind about retirement. Greg, let's let's not be silly. The yeah I know The NBA held four scrimmages. Disney Wednesday. One of them was the new look nets and boy did they looked at what? They to smashed by the PELICANS. Sixty. Out Corona with coronavirus without. Without without. Virus? I did watch a lot of this. Sadly, very interesting. I did I do kind of enjoy it. It's not bad. It's a different type of NBA. But today you've got two more games. I'm sorry four more games including the Lakers and the Mavericks, the islanders reaching naming agreement for their new arena with UBS twenty year agreement. All right, thank you Jerry it is boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network is going to tell you to get slim and trim and all that good stuff and we'll come right back right after that. I will Leagues doesn't send earlier. All right each the morning. Show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo Yankees and nationals keeping an eye on the weather something that Brian cashman Aaron Boone have talked about. They know there is a chance that the game gets canceled tonight or postponed until tomorrow. We'll see how that works out I. Really Hope that isn't the case, but it is finally here after months and months of speculation on what the hell was going to happen with baseball. We are here getting ready for this game, and you get a shot to see Garrett Cole for the first time in a Yankee uniform in the fanfare of Garrett Cole starting opening day for the Yankees. pinstripes at Yankee Stadium. Of course that is something that you can't have and you're not going to see, and his first start is going to be in a sixty game season with no fans down in DC. But the season still count. It's GonNa. Be Different. The champion will be crowned at the end of it, and you still want to win it and that champion will not be compared to the others in major. League Baseball. Because this is different, but you know winning this year. Still everybody else had the same issues going into it. They're still be one team that stands above the rest, and you will be proud of that and every. Player, who was fighting for their? Rights in their contract and all that stuff that was going on for those months now, but they're. They're and they're ready to go they WANNA win. I can guarantee that immune paper. Maybe one or two WANNA. Be Eliminated so they can go home. I mean. There's a lot of players but I. doubt it now there with their teammates. Everybody wants to win on the Yankees have is good of a shot as anybody of course this year, so it'll be great to see and now that we've gone through. You know what baseball is going to look like right now with no fans we are. Are Going to get a glimpse at some digital fans out there as well now that we've gotten used to that, it's time to to focus on what actually happens in matters in these games, and I can't wait to actually have a result that counts as opposed to exhibition stuff, and whatever else, and it's all. It's all getting started for knew that with all the problems that baseball had that they would be the first ones back playing real games after all those horrendous negotiations, and all the back, and forth that we dealt with and talked about on an everyday basis for four hours. Well all I can tell you that I'm looking at the weather report on dark sky now ever since apple took over this APP for some reason is gone haywire, but they do say light rain from about four o'clock this afternoon until about eleven thirty tonight. Now whether that a that includes thunderstorms, which is you know pretty normal down there this time of year. That's a whole nother situation, but. If. It's light rain. Maybe they. They get the game in. The last thing you want, I think now is a rain out the start the season. Be Horrendous Yeah I looked at the weather earlier and I I can't trust doctors dark skies much anymore. They've been dead wrong. A lot of time I still have the APP on my phone, and sometimes if I don't get good weather channel forecast dark sky. This whole thing up. Maybe hawks involve or something. I don't know I. No idea it used to be the best forecast by far out of any of them were so accurate, and then and it just it just changed. Apple took it over the I. Know, but I don't know how I. Don't know. It doesn't make any sense so all right so the weather channel APP has if you go to hourly. Starting at seven start seven, GM. FIENNES DC why the channel you got temperature eighty three. Chance precipitation. Fifty five. Wins West southwest of power. And a forty percent chance nine at nine pm from the wing, forty five percent chance to win over five percent votes so forty forty at eight. Forty five at nine. And, once you get to ten then we'll get older more. lumo Dicey there folks as well up to now sixty percent chance and eleven sixty five so and a recap. Precipitation numbers stoning seven. Washington DC. Fifty five, forty, forty five. Sixty on the fan. So that could change and it's and it's like the thunder and lightning emojis that they have. Thunderstorms! No, it's not. It's not I actually look at that I. Look at that and I say that it could be or couldn't be because thunderstorms are hard to predict, and sometimes they just roll right through back right so Kayla answer me this question more. Susan and John With the team. I. Don't think so no! Do you know that I answer I don't I don't know? I don't think something that the F.. They don't update guy. You know I don't think he knows I think we. He's cutting tape right now, but he I don't believe that they are no I think that they will be there at the home games with the Road Games. They're going to be broadcasting with a dilemma feet. And where will they be doing you broadcast from? Are they going to be doing from the stadium? I I. Don't know you know. There are people that you get asked that actually know the answers to these questions. I don't know why. Chernoff right? Yeah, I mean you. If you really wanted to know I, mean you? You text him. And he would give you the answer. You know I don't know the answer. Where these these guys as long as I can listen to him. You know where John and Susan are going to beat tonight over honor fan calling again. That's what I'm talking about on the faith. Call on a fan calling the game. Speaking of the Yankees and people who would know the answer to this I saw. Have you ever seen rainy Levine's wikipedia page? It is unbelievable. And, he definitely rooted himself he had to have. It's the most unbelievable wikipedia page I wish. I had a wikipedia page, Toya. Why are you looking at Randy Levine Wikipedia? Page the reason. Why is it so ridiculous? Somebody tweeted it out I. Didn't go searching for all right. Someone tweeted out and go. Look how ridiculous rainy Levine's wikipedia page, so so, what does it say that makes it so ridiculous all right here we go. Okay Levin resides in Manhattan and also on his farm in polling New York with his wife Mindy Franklin, Levine and their seven. Dogs Zion Auto. Ziggy Perogie Miss Lucy. Jemma Maya Pearl v and on girl. He also has five horses, including two quarter Horses Hanukkah Harry and Olaf. The FORMER RUNAWAY NEW YORK! City Carriage Horse Oreo. Now named Orion, a Shire drought rescue named Fiona in a mule, rescued from a kill pen auction named Jitterbug. Levin also has rescue cows as well including two Charlotte Walk heifers. And a Hera, referred Angus Cross and two retired dairy, cows, Lucille and serene. Met Hereford I. Don't know man. What the hell do I, know from quarter horses and show cows, and whatever the hell else is going on, so you're in your your deadly. This deadly accurate at has to me. Either that or this person is the next Kurt Vonnegut who wrote this thing, okay? One of the two Levin also has a champion show dog Labrador. RETRIEVER NAME HEDGE LAWNS sharper. Image Aka Mitch. Levine is very active in animal rescue efforts and is a proponent of equine therapy for military veterans. Levin has a sandwich named after him at the palm restaurant on the upper west side. The ingredients include. Char Su pork and Italian fries to of Randy's favorite foods there you go. That's the personal I mean. It's ridiculous. You the names of his dog. Catch that I caught that yes. I mean Zairian Otto. Ziggy Perogie Miss Lucy. Jemma, Maya Pearl V and girl. And then to to quarter horses Hanukkah Harry and Olaf. That's amazing. Good for him man. That's tremendous. Stuff I mean is all I had it tough with the two dogs in the occasional mother-in-law dog in the house. This is I felt like I I couldn't get any chickens. Because of all the living things that I have to take care of all right, so who the hell knew Jesus here here's the here's the answer for John and Susan. There'll be Yankee stadium during the Games from there as will be the The s the guys. Okay so you can only I, guess you can only have your home announcers in your building. All right there you can. I was telling you. You remember. A lot of these teams obviously have their own regional sports networks. I'm assuming that. Yes did not send anybody down. There may be a technical person or whatever, but they'll be using the feed from the nationals I'm assuming. Okay! Yeah, that would make sense so there won't be two separate broadcast from a technical standpoint, but there will be two separate broadcast from the announcing standpoint with the New York Yankee announcers announcing the game from Nike Stadium. Okay very strange. Well, but then again that's what Ronnie keeping Gary. We're doing the other day right as long as I can watch it, and as long as I can listen to it right here on the fan. Yeah, if it gets done I'll be happy. And I think most fans will be pleased with that too, and it doesn't seem like it's going. It's something we're going to have to get used to. Not Everything's going to be perfect. I remember the first exhibition game at CITI. Citi field when the Yankee broadcast was calling the game, you know you could tell when balls were in the air that they had to wait a little bit longer to see if it was going to be a home run. If there's going to be caught because they're watching the TV monitor and they couldn't look at it. There is because they couldn't see the ball flight in the air. So stuff like that is going to be different, but they'll get it done. I'm not concerned just no rain tonight. Watch the game and listen to the game, and everything will be great each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Gregg analogy boomer and Geo G. I got sucked employer from your favorite owner in the NFL mark. Davis once again is back at it yesterday. He said I have lost Games Davis said. That's how I've learned to live my life. You lose on, Sunday, you're pissed about. Did I go to PF? changs on Monday have lunch, and then I'm out onto the next week. We got our ASS kicked in La, and when we went back to Oakland with our tails between our legs and then Scott mckibben backtracked and tripled our lease. Total disrespect it was like. How are we going to work with these people? Basically, he was saying his truck to Las. Vegas has been nothing but beneficial to the team to him, and how excited he is to be in Vegas, even though it looks like they will not have any fans in their brand new multi billion dollar stadium. I told you man told you about PF changs. Yep, that's the. That's the word. The word on the street Mark Davis is that guy. That's where all the big moving shake happens with Mark Davis. Meeting with him, it better be a PF changs right exactly. I should say congratulations to the islanders who do have an Jerry reported this earlier this morning, but for those people who did not here they do have a naming rights partner UBS for new. Belmont Stadium and that's great. Yeah! That's great yeah. said there's going to be baseball tonight. Between the Yankees and nationals, and then the dodgers and the giants, Jerry also said they played some basketball last night. You said a lot of things. He said a bunch of stuff. We're good. Yeah, I guess based no, give us the damn. It will give you yes I, give you some sound. Here's Aaron Boone talking about the Yankees and nationals opening up the season, and he says this is what we've gone through. This is a pretty cool moment. I know just my own personal longing for this and desperately wanting to get back at it, and knowing friends and people in the world. That Miss Sports so much, and I know a lot of people are going to be tuned in and looking forward to watching a meaningful game tomorrow night between you know what we think is too great teams, and of course he's got a new starting. Starting Pitcher Anew Ace and Garrett Cole can't wait them. We're looking forward to him. Being able to go out and hopefully go start impacting our team on the field in a huge way starting tomorrow, and I'm just excited for him. Because obviously it's been a long time coming for him to this day and I'm excited for him to to really begin his career now with the Yankees. Is Very excited for him him and him as excited to be playing, because who knew a couple of months ago, even six weeks off. This is going to happen a few months ago. We weren't quite sure if we were ever going to be in this position so definitely really fortunate to be here ready to deal with with whatever the season continues to throw our way and just you know I think all of us are excited to kick off the season and get back to baseball. Now, obviously the no fans in the stadium has been a big theme. Everybody's been asked about it. Here's call. He says really not a huge deal, and he will also talk about a couple of places that kind of mimic no fans in the stadiums I. Don't know if I can remember small crowd I remember being warned about Tampa. One of the first times we played. They're having to bring our own energy as well as Miami, but my focus isn't on the crowd as much as I love as much as I love the fans, and we all love performing for the fans are focuses is to take care of the baseball and clean game, but you got. If you play the MARLINS regime, it'd be like guys enough. Already we get it. Tigers Tiger's had fans at least when the Tigers are good, they do have fans the Marlin the raise one ninety games last year, and drew flies there with neither ninety three games I think last year. Where would you put the raise? Honestly if you had the move that team and by the way, Montreal, I don't like the fact that you have a team in Tampa. When you have the biggest sports team of all time having their spring training location right there in Tampa as well the Yankees. Where where did you say you would put them? I would have said before all this mess on Portland I. Thought would be a good city, Montreal or Charlotte under siege I. Just said all of this going on fireworks i. Got It. WHAT ABOUT NASHVILLE? Nasdaq feels good ones yeah. Dome there though. What about Mars now that we have four K. video of Mars. To be a lot of places, you could put a baseball. HOW ABOUT OKLAHOMA CITY? Now why not? Tony I was just GONNA say San Antonio Jerry. Boring. Vegas Las Vegas now that we got the Raiders Yeah Vegas Vegas Hernandez already cities man. Baseball yeah get drunk go to a game yellow. Go to bars gamble. That's what we want from our baseball guy out in Vegas yesterday. was out there doing some work and he goes, man is like. It is so sad. The while his the these are his words, not mine. Sad how half the casinos are open? Others aren't open. It's just like a ghost town right now. Yeah, I know, but Mark Davis was GONNA PF changs for lunch. What about Puerto Rico for a major league team? Yeah I like that was supported. Hell yeah, they would. Be An interesting choice. Here's Brian Cashman. He also very excited for Cole's debut. Yeah, it's been a long time. I was clearly Kohl's and exciting talent he's been focused, has really even relentless in terms of his preparation. Even when spring training stopped, he never has stopped. He's been. Preparing for this day for quite some time casual socks now. Now never good old. Friend does not suck well. You said I mean your words. You know I know lung and Cheek Brian Cashman's looks. That sets I'm mimicking Yankee fans who have called in and said he sucks me. You know he gets gregorious. He gets flavored Torres. And Get scared Cole. I mean come on. Aj Lemay, you I mean yeah, he sucks all right. Garrett Cole faces Max Sherzer. Scherzer's said glad baseball's back, but we can't stop here. We still have to be safe going forward. The challenges are only going to H-. Tougher as we now bring in travel in staying in hotels, buses and other things on the. It's GonNa. Keeps up and so you just gotta continue to keep patients. You mean it because if you don't, we don't have we don't have. All the action here on the fan. Stuff seven eight first pitch, pre game coverage, John and Susan Update Guy over here didn't know where they would be but non super bowl winning quarterback guy did find out that they will be Yankee Stadium doing the game. Remotely Oh come on. That's funny. As for the. I'm killing myself. You crack up I do I, do yes. Hit your head against your bookshelf. And I'm the Jamesy. Yes. Yeah! Okay! Thank you appreciate it. Twice in one time for good luck, three times exactly the mets open tomorrow against the braves. We know the Jacob degrom. Get Start Number one start number two will not be Marcus, stroman. Why is that well? He's got a tear in his calf. That's great. I. Here's Louis. Rojo's will set Lugo now be elevated to the starting rotation. We won't well once again. That's a great great asset tour bullpen and you know our communication preparation. We said to be to be. Going to be a great weapon for US starting the season, Strom will not require surgery. They consider it or they will evaluate him. I should say week to week. Robert Zalman. Wall start the season on the I. L. Tightness in his tricep. Here's Moreau. Haas. It doesn't seem to be that serious. Through the slope with the catcher standing yesterday and you know he's he's progressing again. You know there's supplanted game ramp up and you know, but there's. Something, that will keep your assassinated day with him. Always who is Malraux Haas? Say Mel. No I said I'm asking you. You said Malraux. US Louis Ross. Said more more more royal. Mo Row Haas No, here's more row, Haas or thirty seven loss. I didn't but I could see where you're going with that. Now I think you would like to hear this because this is Edwin, D as three translator, and this is a very mature answer when asked about his role in the bullpen. Does he have to be the closer? You right now the. Pitch in the ninth inning that then I'm GonNa do my thing, but at the moment I'm just I'm just here to help the team win. I don't care for being brought in six hundred eighty ninth inning at the end of the out here to get. My job gets three hours. That's already do all. He's missing as God willing. That's always missing. If you put that in front of it, it would have been the nuclear Louche answer of of our time. Perfect, and you know the thing is. That's how far his confidence is on. If he goes out, there gives up like a homerun Mike in the first. inning that he gets a chance to pitch for the New York mets. We're going to be right back where we were last year. You know what though you might be right. This non fan in the building thing might be a real good thing for him to clear his head, though he falters early because he's not going to get pelted with boos when he picks up the ball in the bullpen on his way out to the mound, and then when he starts pitching. If anybody can benefit, it might be him more than anybody. Good Point. Good Point I hope so man makes sense Jill right so I think the hometown booze. Be a part of the crowd. Knowing absolutely can't do your own player sure can. Do Jerry Yeah Not by not by pushing a button in the booth. No, that's true. I got yelled at from a guy sitting right behind revenge. That was a fan that's allowed. That's exactly right. Think about the WHO's GonNa? Hold Robinson accountable when he jogs the first base when he grounds a ball to the shortstop me, Oh, we will. Yeah okay fine. He's not gonNA listen to us. If you have booze stadium, you'll hear that. Remember last year he actually did try to bust it out of the box after he came back from her and got injuring injured again. Guys torn more muscles than as. Like you run. Your muscle here's the difference I. Don't get paid twenty million dollars a year to stay healthy. I understand I understand, but but you can. If there's anybody on our staff, that can totally relate to this. It's you. Yeah, that's fair. That is fair. The Yankees in Nashville. By the way, Yeah thirty eight. Right six six. Can Right around Your Age Jay? Something about you and your age group Porn Muscles I'm not really just Google it. He is after the game tonight. You've got the giants dodgers. Thirty seven. I right in the Middle Clayton. Kershaw takes on Johnny Cueto the news yesterday it was Mookie Betts, twelve year extension through the twenty thirty two season sounds ridiculous, three hundred sixty five million dollars, sixty five million dollars signing bonus. Team President Andrew Friedman says exactly what we planned on doing went out and got him when we made that trade, we did it with more than twenty twenty in mind. We appreciated the ristic tech that came with that, but we did it with our eyes wide open, and you know commitment. From all of us that we're going to do everything we could. To try to keep Mukhi here for the rest of his career. All the money that takes a lot of pressure off Steve Cohen now. That is very true. Don't have to go out and sign mookie Betts that is right. We'll skip the The beds Clip Eddie Mike Trout says he will play the season just not sure what he's going to do in and around the birth of his child, his wife is do the first week of August and the League in the Players Association said to be discussing expanded playoffs for this season from ten to sixteen teams. Earlier has to be done before the first pitch is thrown tonight whether that's in Washington or whether that's in California either way, let's. Let's get it done One thing you've. We've time here. We got Ron Darling at the top of the hour so I know. Shown up all over the place, so then I will tell you that the NBA had followed. Get more sound next hour than the NBA had four scrimmages on Wednesday One of those was the Pella beating the nets, ninety, nine, six, also sixty eight. Yeah, sixty terrible. I will say I. Sixty nine. The one. That is true. The one thing that seemed noticeable yesterday I g. I, think you watch a little bit of these games. The energy the players had defensively I felt like I was watching a college basketball game, because clearly they haven't played in a while, and they were actually playing defense. I saw a lot of the Orlando game and I saw a lot of the net game, so that was good and bowl. Bowl had sixteen points ten rebounds some. Nuggets beat. We gotta talk about that a little bit later. I mean he was unbelievable at seven feet two inches, he was running around there like a point guard, and he was Canaan threes block, and it was. It was incredible, so it's definitely an overreaction. Everybody's got him in the hall of fame now, but he looked great Yeah, you're right about. Ron Darling joins us at the top of the hour some. Don't five whatever he was on with Joe and Evan yesterday was on with us this. Yeah, I think so. That's what I was told. He wouldn't at least in the Promo. He was on, or he's going to be on with us this morning and also boosted Maggie right after. That's a lot of Ronnie. Lotte Ron. I mean we're Wfan. I! I know we can't ask them each morning. Show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Remember I was telling you yesterday how I was a kid and I would go to the drive in Movie Theater Yeah Sure Sunrise Drive in movie theater, right in the shadow of the south shore, mall, of course, and of course, a couple people on twitter were questioning as to You know the drive in movie theater that I was talking about so I googled it to see exactly. If if if I remembered a correctly and I did remember it correctly. It is the Bayshore Sunrise drive in movie theater that closed in one, thousand, nine, hundred ninety, but it opened in nineteen, nine, hundred, fifty five, and it was showing. Showing first run movies and always had a co feature, there was always a second movie that came along with it, so you got to movies for the price of one. Wow and had enough. How about this it had enough? I didn't realize it was this big. It had enough room for fifteen hundred cars. Wow, that seems insane. Now thinking about how you can't fit fifteen hundred cars anywhere on long island outside of the highways. Right that is that is insanity. Yeah I I've never I never went a drive in movie. Never once it sort of skip. My generation wasn't part of my childhood. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety I was eight. So that wasn't happening if I was a teenager I'm sure I would have a wound up at a drive in movie at some point so I'm Kinda pissed I missed out on that, but they're coming back in certain places and I remember what I remember. Vividly of it was the speaker because the speaker was hanging on a pole, you'd have to take the speaker off the pole and you'd have to put the speaker inside your car and hanging on a closed window because Hawk on it. And the speaker was awful. It was awful. And then as time went on the the the drive in movie theater, you could then get the soundtrack through your radio station at a certain frequency right? Yeah, which I always thought. That's the way it was done now. Was it any like all rated movies ever shown up there? Where like it was very loud and curse, words and goals. Yeah, no I, don't remember. Don't remember that guy ever. JETER boots I remember all the towns had we all had our own movie theaters in town, so we have the east movie theater which turned into a porn Dan Then we had the bayshore movie theater on major that she turned into a porn den. So, Porn was big back then in those particular movie theaters, but now at the drive in I don't remember an R. rated movie. I remember going there and seeing Kelly's heroes I think I. Remember going there and seeing the dirty dozen. You know movies like that. You take date there. Though, right? You don't like go with I. Never took a date I was younger. I was I was in office I would go with my neighbors all right all right Mike, you know. My mom passed away when I was seven and the neighbors, a couple of houses over the dad and a mom used to take their three boys and me, and we would go to the sunrise drive. Right, yes, speaking neighbors! This. If somebody miss delivered a package. Happens time right? What do you do with that? You take it if it's a neighbor. That's close to you. Take it you drop it off and. Thank you leave it on the porch. All right. Just make sure because we have one neighbor who happens to have our cell phone number that leaves. Less than the length of my driveway away from us, who when? This person gets package. Text us to come. Pick it up. Well I mean if it happens a lot. Of these three three three times in three years. Let's all right well. You know every time they get it. They should probably bring it just down to your driveway took a nice walk. It's a beautiful day out it on your porch when you do that. I have done that. That's the thing I ve reciprocated in those instances I even got a whole load of somebody's mail the whole thing. And I brought it over to the house. Knocked on the door, I to make sure that they would get it and let them know what was going on, and we had a nice conversation. I know that it. It's funny. You bring this up. Because today's goes is talking to Matt. My son in law and there was a delivery that was missed delivered, and he has its sitting in his truck, and he keeps meaning to bring. It keeps forgetting to bring it, so whatever's in that truck. If if it were, let's say I. Don't know a Hartford transplant. It's not working anymore. You know I was like you never know what's in that thing. You got somebody. So it's a neighbor, so you're telling me. It's a neighbor's package and he's sitting on it and and he's been sitting in sitting in his truck. You know he's got a million things going on Oh, and by the way let me show you what I received yesterday. Hang on, keep talking all right very good, so Chernoff sent me something yesterday. All that's great. That's awesome, so I'm assuming that a grandfather related things since he is now boom pond, boomer and getting all sorts of gifts and things like that and all. The old company edible arrangements basket. Basket, so I've been eating fruit for like the last. I'd say fourteen fifteen hours Yup. We've made a debt at Denton. Yeah I. Know You got to share that with somebody you can't do. You know what's funny is I. I saw you when we were doing the warm up show. It appeared that you were eating a pineapple off a stick and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was going on? And I was like Ottaway pop right. Yeah, well supposed to be a flower right? Yeah, that's what the look is supposed to be. And and I was like what the Hell! Why did he have oddly shaped pineapple on a stick? Now I got my answer there. You go our Boston. Edible arrangements, what did he send anything to Sydney and manages you got for. I don't. You know you would think you'd send it to the parents of the baby, but I mean. He knows me. As the GRANDPA as the Boom Pa. And he's a very proud GRANDPA himself. He'll tell you a thousand times over right that is very. He wanted he wanted to be. You know send me some. Very good well, enjoy that pineapple. Each the morning show with boomer excite you sit in Gregg Giannotti, boomer and Geo joining us right now of S. N. NY former met great world series champion the whole thing friend of the show. The Great Ron Darling wrong. Good Morning. Thanks for joining us our you. Doing well good morning, guys and Ronnie how are you feeling? How's everything going? your personal life and dealing with the whole cancer diagnosis and everything else. Thanks for everything for asking for that boomer, yeah! You know checked when I'm supposed to be checked and everything. is good so far one of those high risk people, but that's you know just taking care of my parents and my family as as we all are trying to. Do you know what I was thinking about the other night? You're a high risk guy yet. Your at City field doing the game. When it was being played in Yankee Stadium. You talk about high risk. You sit next to Keith. Hernandez Wrestler matter what the situation may be. What was that like? Well you know is it was surreal boomer because to be at the ballpark? one of the pitches to Gary Sanchez. He filed straight back and I winced and looked on feel figuring the ball was coming up to the booth, but there was no one out there, and then once the game gets passed. a certain time. city field was completely dark, so literally was the light from our to booze with the only lights are on the place completely dark, and when the game is over, walk downstairs to your car and the parking lot is completely dark and no fans. It was the most surreal. Something out of the last seen in beyond the planet of the aches or whatever I mean, it's just crazy. So of course as we adjust to all these different things here we are again in mets. Bad news world we know Noah Syndergaard is not going to be a part of the season now. We're finding out that Marcus. Stroman has the calf issue and we don't know how long he is going to be gone for, but. What do you see from the remaining members of this rotation outside of Jacob Degrom to make mets? Fans feel a little bit better this morning. Well I think you know protease commanded the two signings of walking for Selo have proved to be so important You don't know exactly what you're to get from. Walk up because of the injuries in the past, but you know you're talking about a guy when when he's healthy is going to get. was going to get. Get Out, and then of course, has always been the most consistent starter since he's been in the League, he's GonNa. Guys give you six or seven innings might give up a couple of runs here or there, but he's going to you know. Eat Up innings all the things that you're going to need now with with stroman and and of course syndergaard out You know I know there's talk for Lugo go in the rotation. You know I think he's better than the bullpen, but. He certainly can do that. you know I think. You know my estimation. The team that really is going to flourish as much as I can. During this Kobe. truncated season as the team that really concentrates on who they have not well. They don't have because every single day. teams are going to get news about illnesses or injuries are they're going to change their team on the fly and those that are just better are are going to be the better teams so luckily. The depth of walking Portillo does help you know there is some you know obviously bad news for the mets, but maybe because it is a truncated season, and maybe just because they are using the. During this season they get a little bit of a break here with Joanna. Is Not having to play left field What is your assessment watching him day in and day out now what we can expect from him? boomer I'm not totally on the high properly. Train I mean the great thing about calling. James is that you get to see how players perform, and then you make an assessment of whether they're doing that. Being said he sounds like he's one hundred percent. Behind what he's doing. He feels like he's one hundred percent other than you know. He's not gonna be running like he did before. But as far as the hitting is concerned I think it's GonNa. Be quite a test, I think it's very difficult to not play for two years and the jump in the middle of lineup and be what we imagine you. You NSS for this to be in. That is a game. Changer of guy can carry a team on his back. He certainly doesn't need to do that. The lineup is stronger than it's been I think since two thousand six, so if you get three quarters of what cesspit us has been in the past I think that'll be a great lift to the team. boomer and Geo with Ron Darling on the fan and CBS sports network of the idea of no fans, and of course it's one thing to be broadcasting that way. It's another thing to be playing that way. How quickly do you think that the players will get used to the fact that there aren't people cheering for them? Aren't people booing them? I know they've had a couple of exhibition games, but. Can you imagine being out there? And not playing with any atmosphere at all? Regardless of certain situations like Miami and Tampa were doesn't seem like there's a lot of fans you know is some fans to know fans narrow. That's a big difference there. The jail and You know I'll tell you. I've heard a lot of talk about well, you know baseball players don't play. Play in front of anyone until they get to the major leagues. Well. The reason you don't play in front of anyone is that by the time you get to the major leagues, you've got that extra kind of adrenaline or juice from the fans that keeps you going for one hundred and sixty two games, but you don't need that of course for the sixty game season. Season is the. Is the game going to change because there's no fans No. I think he's still going to have a guys recognized when it's the most important RBI or Jacob Grams GonNa know when he's got that out to get the win, but certainly being in the ballpark and broadcasting game being around the ballpark with nobody around You realize how important. Important fans are two just the fabric of any professional sport. I mean they make the world. Go Round. You know I know that. There's a lot of talk around call in the Yankees and the fact that he was with the Astros Murray's neck was with the Astros as well if you were a team made of his. Would you ask him about the Astros cheating scandal? I certainly would boomer. I'd like to know all about that kind of stuff You know being a former pitcher. Trying to disguise what you're doing out there, so no one has an unfair advantage. I certainly would You know you might not do it. in front of anyone. You might not do it on the bench in the in the locker room, but maybe you do it over a cold one or something sometime where you just talk about You know how it started why guys side to do it why they push the envelope all. All of those things I would be interested now. The Jake Nick to be a feel as though he wanted to talk about it or not talk about it, but I certainly would. would like to know I mean I I don't pitch anymore. That's the like to know what you do. You think there was anything to the fact that the royals plonked three astros when they played them in a exhibition game two days ago. You know I watched all three punking of boomer and and you know because you played the game, all three pitches, or from pitchers, who? Are Very Young don't have a lot of control. A two of them were breaking balls. not fastball. So you know every time I? Think an astro skit Most people are going to consider it a deliberate but I I'd be honestly I'd be very surprised way. The game is played now that there's going to be any out and out of. Going after, Houston hitters two reasons one because I don't think it's part of the game anymore and two I. Think even more importantly is because of this covert stuff and the rules against any kind of entanglement engagement, or whatever, with opposing players is going to be treated very very harshly and I'm talking about big suspensions. I think the astros players going to get more of a pass this year. Do you think that the two thousand seventeen astras are legitimate world, series, champion or not? you know I always look at it this way to. Is that okay? Answer the question, no I don't, but that being said whenever you look at champions down the list. It doesn't matter who they are. You know you think about the two thousand ten, twelve, fourteen of the giants you think of eleven of the cardinals did it without a starting pitching every time you come to the two thousand seventeen, you know who won the world series off the Astros. I mean every baseball fan is going to react that way every single time until hundred years from now so that in itself I think is a bit of punishment. Did the mets do the right thing separating themselves from Carlos Beltran? they did they did that was a that was a train going nowhere boomer You Know I. think that being afraid of the That, we're GONNA to come out, not only what the Houston. Deal but they have not ruled on Alex Cora and what has happened in Boston yet so I? Think you know they didn't. The mets didn't know what else was gonNA come out and I think it was time I just the right time, the two separate and move forward, and and who knows maybe In that decision you get maybe one of the better young managers in baseball release real. Hustle, see. And I'll ask you about this year's world series champion do believe that it will be legitimate or do. We have to look at it differently much differently than we would. The hundred and sixty two game season champion. Well, you'll definitely look at it differently but I. I think that that story hasn't been written yet. What if the sixty game season turns into just? kind of a magical mystery tour and we ended up with a couple of teams in the wild card that the probably don't belong there, but they get in any way if you have they redo it as a John Hayman reporting the sixteen teams is certainly going to have a four to sixteen that maybe. You didn't think going into the season. What being postseason so And then maybe if you have a magical world series, so I think you have to wait posts, all played out and then see what it looked like at the end, but certainly I mean. If you're a purist and a baseball annual, you'll always look at this season. Hopefully you'll look at it and say hey. They only played sixty games. They won the world series. You know what they brought a lot of something. to folks during the latter part of the summer. You know I'd love to see sixteen teams in the playoffs and the reason I say that is because. Because I'd want the eventual champion to have the gold a little bit more difficulty than they would normally have to go through. This is one of the reasons why I like what the NBA is doing trying to finish their season before they get to the playoffs, and the NHL is doing having teams that were close to making the playoffs. After eighty five percent of their games have been played, have a play in series to be able to get into the Stanley Cup and they are going to play four seven game series once they get to the Stanley Cup playoffs, although they are assuming all of this stuff is playoffs for hockey you know. I remember back in the beginning of all of this when they were deciding what they were going to do, and how they were going to do at the fighting, between the Union and everything else and Blake's now going on twitch, and say some of the dumbest things I've ever heard at the most inopportune time, and then out of all of this comes Mukhi bedside and a three hundred sixty five million dollar contract for twelve years with a sixty five million dollars signing bonus good for him, great guy, great dude. He deserves every penny, but I can't remember the last time baseball player got a signing bonus that big. Yeah, it'd be either, and I think a lot of it is protection against the CPA reopening Gomer. Happy the next season so I think he took more of the money upfront, and then his two salaries for the next two years, albeit a huge by any standards are less than he would usually get a just to protect him, so then the money that he's not getting salary. The next two seasons went into a signing bonus. So. That's why I think the bonus is is so high. You're right. There was a lot of stupid stuff, said and and baseball looked like he was gonNA. Shoot itself in the foot, but you know you're I love hockey. You love hockey of your bigger fan than I. Am and I think that one of the great things about the NHL at the you know when they get in the in the playoffs is that it is not only talent, but it also has perseverance and and being able to kind. Kind of last of through that process of of attrition and I'd like to see that in baseball, too, because I think too much in the past, and this is just my take on it too much in the past is that you have these days off that? Allow you to only use five or six year pitchers, not the whole staff, which is baseball season as like it'd be interesting to see where you can't use just five or six pictures that your whole team has got to play, and that war of attrition will will. Will reveal the champion like that better to well, you know I. I do like the fact that it's a sixty games season. Maybe you know we're. We're calling it a sprint because we're comparing it to a hundred and sixty two game season, which I think it is, which I think is going to give some teams that were not expecting much from an opportunity I love that the thing about the hockey and I also think for the basketball to these guys have been offered three and a half months. They've been trying to get their. Their legs back in shape. Almost all the teams are going to be getting back. Injured players might not have made it towards the end of the season, and into the beginning parts of the playoffs of their respective leagues I'm thinking I don't know how basketball is going to do. But I I'm thinking that we may see some of the best most competitive hockey that we have seen simply because of the health of the players, and how many players are coming back from injury, and that's you know for the Rangers in the islanders both. No. I one hundred percent agree I mean think of the they they start the season. April judge and Hicks would not been ready and taxed. And passed inside so that changes your team significantly I also think what's going to happen for baseball Is that at the end of September or let's say the you know the third week in September when you have pitchers of already thrown a hundred seventy. And are kind of on their last legs of the season just GonNa be grinding where they're happy area. Happy Zone is and they're gonNA. Be Pitching the best. You've ever seen them in the postseason. You might even be able to use some board than you used them in the past. When they when they're not starting in relief, a guy's going to have fresh legs. play every single day I. I agree with you I think we're going to see some of the most telling sports despite it being such a strange year for all of us have our viewer on the blue, Jays. How would you feel about that? Well you know I I can honestly understand why. We haven't as a country taking care of business as well as we could have my opinion, and why would Canada allow You know teams to go in and out of Toronto when they've done I think a better job. that being said You know the tough part I think for the Blue Jays. Is that I I? Always thought and I. Don't know even New York would allow this so I I'm sucking up. Prop my head, but I always thought that they New York would be a perfect place for them. A couple of reasons one. There's unlimited places to to live, but also you have the mets and the Yankees. And the mets are of town, they play there with the Yankees Outta town. They play over there. They're in the east. Everyone's playing the east, so they would almost have home games when they're facing. The mets wherever they're playing, and all the east teams will be going through there. There'd be less traveled for them and all that I don't know if they're governor Cuomo is Humboldt with that, but I always thought that would be more of a natural fit. Here's another one quickly for Ron Darling on the fan. When I hear, there's a thirty for thirty coming out on the eighty six, I get excited. I can't get enough of the stories in the everything. When you hear that having been a part of it, you've told the stories for the better part of your life. Do you still get excited about documentaries like this? In the making or you Kinda like I'm over at my My first inclination is to hang up when I hear someone calling about the thirty three I. Don't know what else there is to know about that team. I mean there's been so much reading so much talked about so much, said I don't know now I read as as you guys do that. They have a lot of new footage. That's never been seen before. That makes me a little afraid. Also interested and guess them what they're going to I. Don't know you know. The last dance was so exemplary. It was so good to watch, but the last dance was great, because you had a film crew with the team for twelve months and better, the team for twelve months certainly, if you had a crew embedded with the eighty six minutes, you would have a compelling story you didn't so I. I don't think it's GonNa be, you know certainly what I thought last dance was which is TV I couldn't shut up and say one thousand, nine hundred six mets, sex and drugs and rock. Pitcher. That should be. The should be the title by the way. I was reading that Peter. Lonzo is GONNA. Have a microphone on him and camera on him throughout this whole season. I, I believe. It's a project with Youtube. So. Good for him. Yeah. I think it's great for him, but I also think it's great for baseball. I think that you know other sports of hockey in particular. Have really done a lot of different things whether it's a manager. Interviews in game, or or whatever it is to the people that watch sports. They WANNA get. In between the lines, they didn't want to get on the field. They want to know what it feels like to have a ball hit at you on a line drive or how to hit the ball out of the park or how to score goal whatever it is, they want to hear the players you know, equate it to. It was Pretty Funny Brooks Koepka who I love his comments. He always has really biting comments, but you know it. Might the player Mike? The golfers and I guess Faldo was was talking whatever and I said well, you could hear it. Downstairs in the booth would just be quiet while I don't know if that's the right way to go, but I do know the fans want to hear more of the players more of the on fires, more the sounds of the game and and and I think it's great that Pete's going to be one of the first guys to do it. You know I talked to Mike Athenee last week. I interviewed him for game time and I said so. What are you hearing on the field? He goes well what I'm hearing on a field. I'm not so sure everybody else is going to want to hear simply because the players are always Turpin, each other or they're mad at themselves, and they will drop an F. bomb here or there much like rice and D Shambo that last last week on the golf course when Nick Faldo wasn't talking so. What was it like for the for the announcer and the piped in crowd noise? Yeah that was was surreal. I thought the the boomer was great. Take the din of stadium. kind of the rumbling of what goes on in the stadium. as backdrop kind of sound I thought was very good. I didn't like, and that's just how I felt I didn't like. After a strike out, there was kind of the cheering. That happened to beats after it should've you know when you watch a baseball game and I remember this there's been the same ever since. Ron guidry struck out all those angels that one night people they go to this game, and they have a strike pitcher on the mound with two strikes. They start to chant that two strikes is when they start getting excited, and that's the strike three happens. Happens there in full cheer literally as the ball goes best the hitter so to hear the cheering to beats after the players struck out to me, doesn't capture the essence of what happens at a baseball park, so those people in charge of the soundboards, and some are GonNa be better than others DJ sound guys. are GONNA have to maybe be people who kind of understand the game a little more if you WANNA have more authentic sound. It was great talking to you so happy. That baseball is back can't wait to hear you on Friday at four o'clock as the mets open up their season, and we'll watch the journey on S N with guys. Thanks, guys, I love you. Thanks for being honest entire time. All right thanks take it easy. Have a great day, man good. The thing about them. The other night would have never known that. They were city F- At city field. Had they not kept telling us that? We're at city field. That's how good they were right now. I know well. They've got the greatest chemistry of any booth in baseball. Not that I listened to all of them, but there was actually a poll that was conducted by the athletic, and they came out on top. That's another reason why they're just the best, so we know that even fans who aren't mets. Fans know that that's the best booth there. Just the greatest, so you could put them anywhere. You can put them up in space and have them call a game and they'd be off. Keith is in space. Yes space or SAG harbor the two places. And, we love the guy each the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo Jerry with us with an update. What's going on Jerry while you know what's going on? Baseball's going on guys. Weather, pending of course in Washington which is going to be a big part of this story because it looks like as you guys went through your weather apps earlier fifty fifty. Maybe that they get this thing in tonight. We certainly hope so. The Yankees are in DC to open up with the nats. We Got Garrett. Cole. Max Scherzer here's coal. It's been a while since we've seen baseball and he's very excited lots of anticipation. A lot were excited. It was a nice train ride. It's raining a little bit right now, but we're getting settled and getting acclimated to of the new environment. And Yeah I'm I'm stoked I'm stoked I'm already having trouble. Sleeping them soaks in should be sounds a little like Patrick mahomes. Isn't he a little? FROG. He's a throat. Yeah, mop thing going on Yeah Hey. It's works for those guys. Those are two rich dudes, rich and successful. They're doing alright and even though they'll be nobody there, he says the adrenaline will be flowing. I start first real start with the Yankees I'm sure it'll be there for a number of personal reasons, and you know just. What a wonderful opportunity to kind of lead the game into existence here in twenty twenty as a team. We're thrilled and we're not honor. WE'LL SKIP THE NEXT! Just mowed down. I can't wait to mow down a bunch mother bleepers. That's what I'm. GonNa do mome down down, embarrassed them. Up Your ass. That's what I do. I. Mean It's it's definitely a way over the top impersonation that I probably never be able to nail it, but that's I mean yeah, it's. It's just funny. A guy that dominant sounds like that right that's that's the thing. That's the funny part about when he crashed off. Voice he's got a muppet voice he does. Yes, he does. Anyway sit down, jerk. We'll skip the to boone ones Eddie. Let's get to Max. Scherzer his opposition. Who Says Opening Day always a thrill doesn't matter how many times I mean years been in this. Day and go on opening day. That's always special person. Lhasa, it's it's star baseball It's been too long without baseball so. It's pretty cool that we're the first ones ago. Question for the boys all right? This is your question to see what your answers are, and then we'll get the answer from Mike Fliegelman. Do you think fliegelman is a big baseball fan now? I know it's not the mets I understand that, and he's a met Fan, but it is opening day Yankees nationals, giants dodgers is Mike Fliegelman more excited for opening day tonight, or is he more excited for I believe at eight PM. The official release of Taylor Swift's eighth studio album swifty. He's all about Taylor's. One hundred one hundred percent Taylor swift. Mike, yes, especially with the mets, not playing. It's not even a contest. Not even a contest. Listen I'm not a Yankee Fan. It doesn't mean that much to make. This album's going to sound like any any good that she has any good music. Have you heard any of it yet? No and the NASMYTH was made less than an hour ago on instagram twitter very excited I'm working with you. Because otherwise doing the overnight, I'd be asleep. I'd wake up all this, but those able to follow the tweet and the instagram's as they came along live so big to hear your voice. Yeah! I know I remember the last time she released something he was all like all night long did not sleep because he had to listen to every one of the songs I won't. I was working with you guys. I woke up our earlier to listen before I had to come in here. Right yeah, so that's. WHAT SORTS OF EXPECTATIONS! My expectations are that it's going to be another great album. Why would I expect anything less? Seven for seven so far. I mean, are you? A Guy will call it like it is if it stinks or you're just gonNA, defend her. No matter what. No, I'm pretty sure I would call it like it is if it's thanks again, we haven't gone to point. Jump the shark yet. Anything y'all like so you're telling me that there isn't even a single or anything. She just kept this whole thing. Under wraps and then Bang. She's GonNa. release. The whole album, Walsh, even said in the post of twitter or Instagram I forget which one may be both that normally she'd spend a lot of time thinking leading up. You know how to plan this. What the perfect time to drop it all would be, but because of the ties we're living in. She worked on. It completed instead. Let me just put it out there. All right good hope. We get a couple of summer jams in there. Some say I texted somebody. I'll I won't complain about anything when we get this album tomorrow, but then at four o'clock if I see the mets and Robinson hitting third, then y'all start complaining about these. You're the only guy in the world that is that combination. Probably it'll be riding high off the Taylor swift album and his day's GonNa. Be ruined. Robertson Cano is hitting third in the lineup I love it. That combination I would say yes. Skip the next boone, one rather Sherzer, when Eddie Harris Brian Cashman, so are all Chapman has not been with the Yankees as he tested positive for Covid nineteen years Kashmir with the update. He's been quarantined at his residence here in new. York and the trainers stay in touch with them as well as the doctors. He's been getting repeated ten, and until he gets to negative tests. Come back in so far. Clearly, he's been. Testing positive since he's been diagnosed. The process were in so really. There's no timetable for his return. Until those two POD, negative tests come back, so that was interesting, because it feels even why feels like he's been away for a while now and still testing positive for him again. Yankees nationals on the fan tonight with John and Susan First Pitch Seven eight. The mets indeed tomorrow, but they're news. Marcus Stroman as we found out. He is a tyrannous calf muscle. The good news though from Louis. Row Haas is not going under the knife for this. Now I heard non none surgical now he's. Tear the here on the left Cap. So you know I, said now. He's a week to week. Thing so that's that's the approach that we're taking a, but it's not just stroman Robert. Gazelle men will start the season on the injured list with tightness in his triceps of the first three will be degrom mats and Poor Selo over the weekend opening day for the mets tomorrow for ten against Atlanta will skip the other two row houses enough any dodgers giants tonight the second part of Baseball's opening opening day doubleheader Clayton Kershaw Johnny Cueto, the pitchers there Mookie, Betts at twelve year extension through the twenty thirty two season. Just think this boom PA. Your granddaughter will be twelve when that contract is up holy-moly here's beds. High School. My daughter will be in high school. Kids are college age. Oh my God. Yeah, that's when they really gets interesting for you. Thanks boomer you. Could just let that go good you. You're enjoying your wonderful little daughter. We'll just wait. Tell.

Invincible. Especially in this time and day and age. But once they have their own baby boy. It changes. It changes for the best. I will tell you that I've decided to Eddie's a bad guy. decided. It's about time figured that out. As he says in my ear is like. Yes, you say when he will be twelve. Sabrina will be in highschool. Jerry's kids will be out of college and whimsy will be dead. By God. I. Got Say, that at ease. NBN A. Dog I two. It's just a bad guy. Oil through. The first thing he. Not now that I think about. If if what is out on L. is going to be inconsolable. Well. We've got put twelve years to think about it. Boy Looking at EH CBS sports now. So, proud of himself. The picture of Him Jiggling I. That's how you know. He made himself. Goals, I. Love it Oh Gosh. There's no question. and. GIGOLO. Boy Mike. Trout tells the media. He will play this year, so there's good news there and we're waiting to find out if there will be expanded playoffs or not from ten to sixteen. Amazing that we're talking about this hour's. Day, please what yes. I want expanded playoffs. They're the only thing I was thinking about. If they expand the playoffs, a sixteen teams and they want the season over by November I what the heck kind of format are we talking about? I'm not sure, but I hope that it's like you know best of A. Best of three or five to open it. You know just anything to make it more difficult for team to go all the way. That's that's Ron looking for? That's what that's. What expanding the playoffs does it extends your pitching staff at? You have to win type Games. Other teams usually have a top end pitcher that could shut a team down for one game. I mean I. Just I just wanted whatever it takes to make it harder to win a championship. That's it no. That would definitely make it harder for sure. A couple were here a couple of other things. You've got CNN the report on Woody Johnson under investigation by State Department watchdog following allegations that he made racist and. And sexist comments while serving as ambassador to the UK You have Jamal, Adams, hitting twitter I guess it's not a surprise. I suppose saying quote. We need the right people at the top right is right. Wrong is wrong if you don't think this is wrong, you're part of the problem, not the solution saying that all the allegations are true right right? That's what he is saying, so he is judge, jury and executioner in this case on twitter, yes? The. NFL says if fans are allowed in stadiums this season, assuming there is a season that masks will be required chase. YOUNG GETS FOUR YEARS OVER THIRTY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS FROM WASHINGTON ANTONIO.

You're on it, I have is an eight twenty six email. And you, don't you don't have you gotta get a new email address bar droid phone? Maybe it comes faster. You're shut the F. Up. So, that's no. Hold on. Let me just check somewhere else. Okay, boomer! It is. I have it I can read it. This galaxy Ben I got to tell you the email right in. No I think it's more a problem with Fliegelman Tis. How is that case? Because one you've got his and Jerry? I get everything I have no idea why. All right well we'll just get out of this quagmire, and I'll read this for you, and hopefully we'll try to get this fixed in the future each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Talk a lot of times about the wire situation that we have in our house. At all of them that have just been entangled in a million things to keep us on the air every day I, finally, experiencing like issues with the wires, though now this is now becoming becoming a problem as my my headset going in and out, there's all sorts of issues I just tripped over two wires. I mean it's it's gotten to the point. I I need. Some time off I've gotten it's this is now I am there? I almost fell flat on my face, as I got up and walked out of the room tripped over the wires now. My headset isn't working properly. I don't know what's going on. What picture you taking over the? Wires to send you a picture of my wire, so you could feel my pain as well and I have. I have a hundred and fifty foot ethernet wire. That goes all the way to the basement. I thought my fifty one was a big one. You've got one hundred fifty foot wire. We'll get that. Aren't you not that I need all one hundred and fifty feet. It's just that's what they sent. So, so it's like having like socks that are too big. That's why I work. CAIN eleven socks because they fit my feet perfectly, that's. Up at the toes, and they don't scrunched down at the heels, and my and my feet are comfortable. You see what I'm saying I have a hundred and fifty foot wire where I probably need. Sixty five feet. Yeah. So the fifty foot, one I have that goes downstairs goes down the stairs, and then it goes over to the Altea box and plugs in, and it's just it's right there. In the most high traffic area of the House and Sabrina has learned step over it, but in the beginning she was, she was tripping on it every time. The dogs didn't know what to do with that. She'd pick it up. She'd mess around with. It was like this is just GonNa be a disaster, but then she's. She's learned to live in it. Watch like many other things that we have to deal with during this time, but yeah. Yeah, it's I finally I. Almost took I almost got knocked out. That would have been that would have been something. I was just laying there unconscious on the ground after falling tripping over the wires, and then you sit near a busted mike jobs are being late to the segment, but there I am unconscious on my bedroom floor now all right well. You know I know. The wires are frustrating. The email situation is frustrating. I think I've handled the email situation I've gotten. Straighten out with fliegelman now and I already have the next live read in front of me open ready to rock and roll now. NO PROBLEM WOW! Talking about. You know ever since we were introduced to that Tick Tock Star. Yes, you! Were in that thing now I see her everywhere. She just got some endorsement deals. She was in the newspaper something with her sisters. She was on Xtra the show with. Joe, very, delightful person and she. What she's done for herself. She's a life for herself. She's made. I'm assuming millions, but billions maybe hundreds of thousands, but she's already figured it out. And then you got to have respect for that. Oh, yeah I, mean. Basically you know dancing on tick. Tock is turned into A. Career for her that you probably not have to worry about anything but rest of her life. She was in a super bowl commercial. For God's sake I know already I know already in I. Don't even know how old she is still. She was sixteen. Yeah, so already I guess her, and her sister got some big gene endorsement and everything else. I had never heard of until. Yeah, I never heard of her until at Super Bowl commercial and I obviously many people did I know that Bobby Dwyer's daughter had known about her idol of hers because she was big on Tiktok but yeah I I'm seeing now. Lots of people, my age on tiktok share their tick tock videos on instagram. They're gonNA. Run TIKTOK. And Yeah, now it's getting ruined. Just like facebook Guy Roux ruin very quickly i. mean you know facebook went from like the thing that you would connect with your college friends with to now it's just one large political bitch fest with the uncle that you never wanted to talk to pushing stuff. That makes you sick. Just remember that there's some guy in a basement in Beijing just monitoring all your talks. Engineering. He's probably in his least probably, not even hiding anymore that guy. He came up from the music. This lead lined four hundred foot deep basement. Right now, just just scouring. For All the information that he possibly can get on Americans. Like these people are morons. This is crazy. More and more people joining every day. This is awesome all right. We'll take a quick break. We'll get back to the Jamal Adams. Story coming up in just a couple of minutes. It is boomer and Geo on CBS sports network and radio DOT COM. All right beats the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg Naughty boomer and Geo. Some bad mets news we have talked about all morning long with Marcus Stroman and the Eh calf tear, and how long it's going to keep him out, and how the mets are going to have to deal with that and also Jamal Adams with the Woody Johnson report the allegations, the racist and sexist remarks. That are out there and how Jamal Adams basic quote tweeted it and said get. Oh, we need change at the top. You know this is why he wants out I. Mean I'm paraphrasing now, but he. He saw that as an opportunity to make his case again how he doesn't WanNa be a New York jet now. Don't get me wrong if it is proven. That woody Johnson said the things that he said. said that's horrible. Everybody agrees with that nobody can say those things and people are going to accept them. It's just not going to happen, and it's bad i. mean that the allegations are bed does not mean hundred percent true. We've been down this road before. We should be giving people the benefit of the doubt, especially in this news cycle world that we are living, but there's no doubt about it, but. You also have to understand that the thing that prior to these allegations that came out. Were allegations from CNN are somebody. That Ambassador Johnson was pressuring the English or the British government. To host the Open Championship at WanNa Donald Trump's golf courses in Ireland. So, I mean this comes on the heels of that. And like I said earlier, this is this is the political season. This is where these people just absolutely slice and dice, each other, left and right any which way that they possibly can on both sides. This is this is a this is an argument for both sides, and in the middle of all of this, as a pandemic in the middle of all, this is is the racial divide that some people want to continue to push and make it their narrative, so you have to understand the entire story in how all of this stuff is coming out, and why all of this stuff? Now all of a sudden coming out and I would say the same thing in regards to the other side that are taking. At the present the presidential candidate, Joe Biden It's the same thing, so it goes back and forth, and it's tit for tat so now this is the latest foray into the one of the biggest supporters for president trump, and that's obviously what he Johnson, and what he Johnson happens to be an NFL owner, so you have. A number of things going on here and let's make the accusations. Maybe the accusations are true I. Don't know, but let's make the accusations because there's going to be a sponsor. A response that is elicited from NFL players towards one of their owners because of the world. We're living in right now, and all the things that are happening around us. Sure I mean and there is a reason why news stories like this happen when they do doesn't mean that it's false doesn't mean that it's true. The allegations have been made, and they're not good allegations. Now Jamal Adams I believe saw these things, and said all right. This is another great check in the column of I WANNA. Get Out of here. This is perfect. Look what he Johnson. The man who owns the jets means the Johnson. Johnson family! They own the jets. If this is true, and he's basically the way that he's tweeting is just making the assumption is true. This is true. How can I possibly want play for this organization? I mean He. He could not wait to quote Tweet Dad and get that out there to say man. Look at this is terrible. You gotTA trade me. You gotTA. Get me out of here. I couldn't possibly play these people when meanwhile. Christopher. Johnson has been in charge of the jets since Jamal. Adams has been there and Christopher. Johnson is a guy who has had Jamal Adams back throughout all of this and wants. To remain jet prison tire career, so I mean it bothers me that the people who and forget about woody for a second, because it doesn't even really even factor into this right now as far as Jamal Adams is concerned. The guys who've had Jamal Adams back especially Christopher Johnson, who was trying his best com, Jamal, Adams down during that whole trade nonsense that he got into a lather over for no reason because Joe Douglas took a phone call about Jamal Adams at the trade deadline. He was acting completely out of line during that thing Jamal Adams and Christopher Johnson a pass tried to smooth it out had a long conversation with Jamal Adams I mean at. At, every turn he's had his back and given the benefit of the doubt and here's Jamal Adams. Basically say well I'm not getting what I want from a contract standpoint, so screw you guys and I can't play for this organization and turning his back on the people that have always had his, and that's the part that bothers me about this, and he's using the the world in which we are living in right now to get. What he wants, and what he wants is a brand, new big shiny contract, and he wants to go play for somebody else, and he is using it for those reasons, and we all know that we all everybody understands it. You'd have to be blind not to see it. And I just think that. Be Now now now if you're the jets, what do you do that? That's really the question. What do you do with a disgruntled player? Who basically calling your own are racist? Throwing the. The racist word out there just like it's an everyday word like there's the connotation of that and the meaning of that, and the accusation of that is extremely extremely Insulting. It is especially I don't know it's a when I. Don't even know if we're allowed to call them owners anymore, but when I think of NFL, owners paying players, you know a hundred million dollars a year, five hundred million dollars over the course of a lifetime contract. I. Don't I don't see how that's a bad world to be living in and playing, and eventually you know if you're a first round draft pick and you meet the standards and the expectations of your your draft status. You'll end up getting paid and making more money than anybody else. You've already made more money than you know. Day that you're drafted. You're slotted, so he slotted six overall with his position, and he's making his number six on the list, so he was six and his draft class in terms of the amount of money he's made, and he's angry, because like Freddie, Jackson, who got drafted in the second round, didn't make the money, and only had a four year contract and the. The bears did not have that option year at the end of it is got a new contract because of where he was drafted originally, and where his contract was when they gave him a new contract so I I don't know if you're the jets and you give them a huge contract and he stays then all of this today is a pile of poop. Know exactly system. He didn't really care about any of this. He just wanted his money and I wanna see that now. Basically he he can't sign a deal with the jets at this point, he can't. If he wants to be taken seriously and not looked at as a fraud. He can't sign a deal with the jets because. It's so bad it just so bad, and by the way the second that that story hit the Internet. Whatever the outcome of it is. It's going to be ugly because one. If it's true, it's ugly and to, if it's not true, and it was something that was floated out there for political gain in somebody's reputation cross, because then that's ugly to. See that happened to over the years. Plenty yeah, I mean it's it's. It's happened a lot, so it's happening way too much. That's why every time something like this comes down the pipe. You have to take with a grain of salt and where it's coming from, and why it's coming, and because that's all. Right still be true. It could be true, but there's been so many non truths. It's really have to be skeptical. Be Skeptical. Be Cynical. We are living in the world of hypocrisy. It's the era of hypocrisy. There was the enlightenment era there was. The Renaissance Industrial Area the renaissance era. We're in the the hypocrisy. So I listen I understand. I really hope it's not true. I understand. There is a possibility that it is true I getting it. But if you're Jamal Adams, you know, don't lose this for your own. Did. You can't say don't do it because he. He already has yet, and he's already he's. He's basically fried. The owner that you're it you're done. You're over with your racist. You're wrong and you can't be running this franchise and I want out of here. Now Christopher Johnson and you are Joe Douglas. What do you do? I think at this point. He's got to be traded. He has to be. You gotta give him what he wants. As much as that is tough to take because you've lost the battle, I think at this point. He played the game the way that he did. This story came out. He did what he did with that tweet and now i. think you gotTa Try to get the boast? The largest compensation possible for him in the trademark, it really sucks for the jet Fan though I really do I think the jet Fan loves the Kid I think they do the way he plays. They love his attitude on the field. I don't know about off the field I. Don't know what he's like. In the Locker Room I've no idea got loaded MVP. Mates last. Assuming that he's the leader of the team I don't know what kind of leader but. It doesn't seem like he wants to be the leader of the team. That's just want to be on the team. Yeah, it doesn't want to be on the town anymore. And that sucks jet fans. Because you know, they got a draft. Pick right, you know. They got it right. I told you. My Buddy Frank Reich, told me man I. I love the Kid. Maybe they ll. Everybody in the league loves the way he plays I. Don't ever want to take anything away from that part of his game. Because that's the most important part, and that's what he'll end up getting paid for, but just know this that you are going to be getting somebody that if he is not happy, he is not. He is not worried about pissing off anybody or separating himself or Engaging in some sort of controversy. Sure, if you trade for Jamal Adams, you got to sign him immediately because he's just going to be the biggest pain in the ass on earth, if you I mean, it has to be one of those deals where you make the trade, and you agree to terms because really a shame because I know with him and Sam. I mean you got two personalities two players that everybody. In the jet world likes and really respects, and unfortunately this I. This is like the straw that breaks the camel's back. Yeah right, but at the same time the way he is acted, see good riddance right. I mean. Do you when you look at the? Personality of Jamal Adams through this process I mean it's really showing you either. He's changed or his true colors, and there's been no patients. He has gone about this the exact wrong way. He's done over social media. He's he's gone to the Antonio. Brown School of getting himself traded. You want a guy like that on your team. You win with guys like that. I mean you one with Jamal Adams the last couple of years on the field that type of Jamaa Judy. With him on the field. Right I know but what I'm saying is that? With him on the field. They've been terrible. My point is to rephrase it. You can win with that Jamal Adams even though they have it I don't think you can win with this Jamal Adams if he's just going to be this much of a crybaby around every turn, and it's all because of the contract I get it, and maybe if he gets the contract he is. Is He. quiets down and and gets back to be in the great football player that he is and the leader that I thought he was, but it's too late now it's too late. He's gotTa go, and he's just another guy. In a long line of people who things aren't exactly perfect for them, so they have to act like a complete baby to get their way. Jalen Ramsey Dwight Howard. I'm forgetting. To Denver. Yeah, that was a while back. There's one I'm missing. Anthony Davis Antonio Brown I. Mean it just. It's on and on and on I. Mean You know there's certain guys like Khalil Mack? He ended up getting traded he will. He didn't act like this then so much publicly, but he ended up getting traded. He was a great. Forum? They cry autumn, and they were looking for something in return, and they got something Chicago that they felt was akin to try to replace. What co- Khalil Mack brought to the team the question like I think the jets have got to ask themselves and I know that Greg Williams loves the kid, because obviously he can utilize them in so many different ways because his is football. IQ On the field is ridiculous. You know there are certain players that you know that when they're on the feel on the ice on the court, they see the field they. They see the ice. They see the court. They make the passes. They make the plays they make the interceptions they make the tackles whatever it may be. He's in that upper one percent when it comes to football IQ on the field. There is no question about that then he is a terrific football player, but man I'll tell you what what he has done here to. The jets in the last twenty four hours is basically boxed them in the corner and has used this for his own gain and I think that that's exactly why he's using it. Oh Yeah I mean. He saw this as an opportunity, he wasn't. He could've been offended by it. He could have been upset by it, but he also saw it as an opportunity. There's there's no doubt about it. He said he said this. Is this great for my 'cause? You know just shows you get me out of here so it I to me. It's over now. This this to me sealed. Sealed it. I still thought that there was a chance that you know before I saw that tweet. There'd be able to work something out even with the Dallas. Cowboys are the Dallas Video. where he said he was trying to get to the cowboys. Even with all that stuff. I was like They still could be a chance now. Boys can't afford him and they don't have anything to trade. I mean you gotta? Look at teams that could afford him. You know could Jacksonville Jaguars. Afford send them there every the problem the problem is is that because he be has become this way in the way that he is reacting to a lot of these things. You know his agents going to say you know. We're not going to Jacksonville. We'll be a pain in the ASS, Jacksonville. We're not. We're not going there. No matter how much money they pay us. So that's that that's where the problem gets presented to Joe Douglas. You know right I mean. Joe The other part of this? It's so unfortunate is Joe Douglas basically just got here and he got embroiled in this thing that wasn't even his fault, and now he's got a clean up this mess. I mean he didn't even make a mistake, you know. I remember I remember when I first met Joe Douglas and And and obviously everybody who's ever worked with him in Philadelphia Chicago Baltimore, sings, its praises and rightfully, so I mean this is this is one of these guys that it's worked as way from basically scouting non drafted free agents all the way up to becoming a general manager in the NFL. This is what you want. This is how you want people to ascend to their jobs. And I remember talking to him. Say Man just better buckle up and just get ready because you know once something hits. Attends to get blown completely out of. Proportion because of. The team you're coming here to Ron and because the fan base and the social media and the people who cover the team. Let alone the players that play on the team. You know he didn't draft him all Adam, so he inherited him. And now he is finding out pretty quickly. What it means to be general manager of a New York sports team. Yup, I mean this is what everybody says. I mean. This is what people were telling them. Probably before we sign that big deal and left the eagles like you'd better really get some security there. You'd better get your money. Think about what you're doing franchises. Got Six years that it's kind of like white collar Shanahan and and. Gm John. Coach John Lynch got the six year deals they got, and then obviously Shannon took the team to the super bowl last year when everybody was healthy, but they were bad as first couple years, and they made the trade for Jimmy Garoppolo, he got hurt, and we're able to draft really well on the defensive line. And now he got a contract extension, so I think that Joe Douglas saw that took an opportunity, and said okay, as long as you give me the time to build the team, and you're not going to run me out of town, and I got my ask covered if you will for the next five years. I'll take the job. And? It wasn't a perfect time to get it, but all I know is he doesn't deserve this. He's done nothing here except except a phone call from the Guy Thumping Chum in the Water Jerry Jones Right Megan. Shopping Jamal Adams when he was not right? All right each morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg Leonardi boomer and Geo. What's happening this hour Kerry? All standing has been happening all hours, and that is got baseball tonight. We've got the Yankees the nationals from D. C.. Good weather. Night, because the forecast, not great garrod goal taking on Max Scherzer at the end of the day. It's a sixty game season today's day one and manager Aaron Boone, certainly one looking forward to it opening days been a Artemije life my entire life, it's all I know. It's one of the holidays of the year for me and my family, and it's privilege to be a part of a major league opening day. That'll be the case again tomorrow night in as unique. Circumstances I've ever experienced probably, and that is now tonight. Unique no fans in the stands dealing with a pandemic months and months ago. The Yankees got themselves Garrett Cole tonight. They see him for real for the first time in Boone fired up for. We're looking forward to him being able to go out and hopefully go start impacting our team on the field. Field in a huge way starting tomorrow and I'm just excited for him. Because obviously it's been a long time coming for him to this day and I'm excited for him to to really begin his career now with the Yankees very excited for him in numerous ways, here is Ham excited, even though they are dealing with weird circumstances, it still opening day. Day there are challenges. There are things that we're GONNA have to do to adjust our routines. And that's really GonNa be across the board from our staff to our players, and you know, but we're grateful for the opportunity to be here and we'll. We'll be able to find some excitement and some joy, because it's the game that we love no doubt and you can skip the next call one eighty Gimme Brian Cashman, talking about seeing his price signing from the off season. Yes, in a long time coming out of clearly Garrett Cole isn't exciting. Talent he's been focused has really even relentless in terms of his preparation. Even you know when spring training stopped. He never has stopped. He's been. Preparing for this day for quite some time you know, it sounds like it's what's I remember when the Yankees brought in Roger Clemens the first time. Sure that's what it feels like to me feels like the the missing piece here like they brought in an attitude and a guy that is going to make a profound difference in the locker, not that they didn't already have a good attitude in the Yankee dugout because they have, and that showed itself last year even with all the injuries. How talk men and or Shell, and all these guys and Mike Ford showed up and carried him to over one hundred win so I think that attitude was already. There was the expectations that were in the pinstripes where the Yankees were. The best and we're GONNA, go out there and we're GONNA. Prove it each and every day by adding a guy of this caliber with his work, ethic with his relentlessness is Brian. Cashman was just talking about is only GonNa make their team that much more. Formidable and much more difficult to beat. Not It's not just the fact that he's going to go out there and do it every day every game hopefully, but it's just the intangible aspect, and how it impacts the locker room. It's kind of like when go came to us. You know you just never know how a guy is going to impact you right and what he's going to do, and how he's going to make. You Feel Free Miller. Very very similar? Like that one geo sat in that chair, and then just became the power man that he's become except that I get paid more than Garrett Cole. Let's the only difference. Yankees and nationals tonight out the fan with John and Susan First Pitch at seven await with your Guy Dr Vouch throwing out that first pitch mets open tomorrow with the braves they had had a summer spring that was going really well until we found out torn left. torn calf muscle for Marcus. Stroman will not require surgery, according to Louise Rojo's, but he will be evaluated in a week to week basis, also of note, Robert Tightness in Tricep, so he'll start on the injured list. List degrom match Portillo. Go One two three this weekend. Giants dodgers tonight to wrap up the double header the opening day doubleheader Clayton. Kershaw Johnny Cueto the starting pitchers there. The News on Wednesday was that of beds monster contract, three hundred sixty five million dollars over twelve years at. AM sorry moving ahead to bed Sierra few cuts Obviously. He got me to La. He had one year left on his deal. And he says this is exactly what he was open for special day. Kind of what I've been working for for my whole life, my family. Has Been a part of this. My parents have been a part of this. Everybody's been part of this whole thing this day that we've been dreaming about and for it to come true deathly blessing super happy to be a part of this Organization for the rest of my career. Is this just a amazing amazing opportunity that I'll never forget sixty five million dollar signing bonus? That's not too shabby of a check. That seems like that would be fun. Mike Drought tells the media he will play the season his wife due to give birth the first week in August, and still waiting to find out about the expanded playoffs, Allnutt, or not should find out before the start of the first game, whichever one that is later tonight, the Blue Jays apparently according to some reports making some headway with playing their home games in Baltimore, so we will see we said that yesterday about Pittsburgh and that got nixed later in the day. So time will tell giants rookies reporting to I. Guess You'd call it camp today, but they're really reporting for covid testing then they'll have virtual meetings tomorrow and Saturday and physicals. physicals on Monday boy doesn't seem like training camp does it? But that's where we're at here's Anthony Munos boomers friend. He was on with the DA show on CBS sports radio and he was talking about Joe Borough pretty much in the same way. boomer has and how difficult this is. GonNa be the kid. There's GonNa. Be Some challenges challenges like the always for a rookie quarterback, but from what I hear what I understand. This young man is a smart young man, and he's all about getting done so hopefully he doesn't go through big adversities as a rookie, and hopefully we get the season going and see what he can do. Unlike the dope that we drafted back in Nineteen eighty-four, who didn't know what the Hell was going on? Stepped on an NFL football field and you had a training camp. Games I will say though my my first foray into the NFL came against the New York jets when I was a rookie in a preseason game. And I think I took over towards the end of the second quarter and played into the third quarter, and I think I throw a couple of touchdown passes, and I remember coming out I think it was believe it or not off the top of my head and Jerry. Maybe you could look this up. I think I was like nine for twelve for one hundred and. Forty five yards and forgave US owns. My first preseason good Lord so it has to be you know obviously August of Nineteen eighty-four, and it was at metlife stadium against the jets and I remember that man. This is going to be easy. This is nine to twelve hundred and forty five yards. Whatever a couple touchdowns man. This is going to be simple. and. It took me a whole year after that the finally figured out what the hell was going on because I had no idea. I. Remember Mitch Trubisky's first preseason game. The guy looked unbeatable. All world and the bear fans got all excited. We worked out well his rookie year. He played okay. You got them to the playoffs and everything and he said they don't miss a kick. They're going on. Yeah I know it is true last year you really really really struggled. Last year. Boy Wolf, their offensive line was brutal. There were so many mistakes and offensive line, and he was. He was playing her, too by the way. You guys be every and one that preseason. Have you found a game? No. But I did find out that you went three and one. That's what I'm trying to find for you. I'M GONNA. Find It. You guys talk okay, but yeah I remember you know. Mitch trubisky played with a I. Don't separated left last year. He came back after he took a hit and. Teams played him differently because they knew that he could run, and then all of a sudden his accuracy was off, and then as as the season wore on, and they weren't scoring points. The fans started coming down on them and everything else. The kid cares I'm just the question is. Is he going to be able to finally get to the next level? I? Think all these kids care. It's just a question of how they apply themselves and. And whether or not they have the right coaching staff to be able to do that with I would like to think they do in Chicago, but that's also a division where the Great Kirk cousins and Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers reside so not easy for him. The only thing I can find is that you beat them. Twenty one to fifteen on August fifth. Yeah, Nineteen eighty-four, but I can't box girl not pull up for some reason. Because there is not one here, so, but yeah twenty one fifteen years. We're winners maybe. And then lost the first five games of the regular season. I didn't play. That's true, but that's why you wound up playing right. I ended up. A couple of guys got hurt. Okay well that too This is some real talk. From Andrew Whitworth of the rams who is on serious. NFL Radio, talking about football and the coronavirus. Had a realistic view the fact that if I'm going to be a professional athlete, keep playing this game with this virus. Going on the chances that I would come across it or are really have to overcome it at some point or or pretty realistic. I mean for sports to happen It's almost I think we'll lose to think you're not going to run across the virus at some point. Pretty real right, there are no doubt about it, and then you had scrimmages across the NBA. There were four of them for more today. Nicola Yokich played in one for the nuggets and he not not worried about Kovin unthank- can be have a doctor supposed to do their job and. I love it. Veneta tabby hit. The. Team can provide us so. I'm on thirty awarded about. And the NBA testing has been pretty good since they've gotten to Orlando in that game for Denver as they beat Washington. My Seven Bowl Bowl had sixteen points ten rebounds. Six blocked shots. We talked about him a little bit earlier. The Nets lost big to the PELICANS. Ninety, nine, sixty, eight in their first time out as well and the islanders get A. A naming agreement with UBS for their new arena and Belmont. It is a twenty year agreement will find out the team. The name of the new Seattle Hockey team coming up later today as well time now. Four moment of the day brought to you. Buy Resorts World Casino NYC and resorts, world catskills for updates log on to play our W DOT, com. I think it was last hour. We were discussing the Times or the time when mookie Betts contractors up. We're looking at twenty thirty. Two in this weird conversation took place. I will tell you that I've decided that he's a bad guy. decided. It's about time to figure that out. He says in my ear. He's like yes, when he will be twelve, Sabrina will be in highschool. Jerry's kids will be out of college and whimsy will be dead. By God. Say. That at ease nbn a dog I to just a bad guy that it's not true. Never that's the first thing. You know. That I think about. If if what is out home is going to be inconsolable. Well we've got. Twelve years to think about it. Boy just looking at Eddie at CBS sports. Price so proud of himself. The picture of him jiggling. I.

Baseball Is Back, Stroman Is Out And Jamal Adams Rips The Jets

"Good Morning, boomer! How are you good morning i? Wake up this morning obviously with the news to Marcus, stroman thinking that the mets last year, and they're a little run there toward gender the season where they brought him in. Pretty Damn good because they had arm arm arm, taking the mound, and now out of all those guys from last year there are two of them left, and that's obviously Jacob degrom and Steven Mats and this to go along with what I think. People are describing as a shaky bullpen. Hopefully it'll be better this year than it was last year, and really not the way you want. Go into the season, and it's really unfortunate because it all the things that were going on all the moves that were being made and everything else. Injuries store going to be a factor and the fact that. Marcus took a ball off the calf in his latest. Scrimmage game with the New York mets, and now has a torn calf. Him I really don't know I. Don't know how bad it is i. don't know what kind of you know a grade tear. It is, but if it is somewhat significant, we might see him for at least a month. By month is like four months in this. Sixty game season will missing. A month is like missing the season, and it's not as if the mets have the depth of the Yankees. There's no question about that so. That was a really that was. That was tough to take yesterday. Because you know we're all excited because we have a lot of really top end quality, young players, we all. It's a likeable team. It's a great team in terms of. How the fans took to them, especially towards the the bottom third of the year last year, and everybody was hoping that this would be their year to bounce back and now when you take a look at what their starting rotation looks like, and you compare it to the teams that they are going to be playing because of this regional sports schedule on the fact that they're playing AL teams I can make an argument if you took Jacob degrom. They would have the worst rotation of any team that they're going to play against now. Maybe maybe a couple of teams. Aren't quite as bad, but with Jake in their. You like to thank. Every fifth start is going to be a potential for a win, but after that I have no idea what to expect from Stephen Matt's Rick Portillo, who knows Michael Walker? Who knows I mean this is? This is I can't even think of a worse situation right now than the mets find themselves in comes to their starting rotation, and we all know it is about pitching in this league that always has been about pitching in this league except of course when you have. The Yankees seem to hit five home runs every game every time. They're out, but this is. This is not good this. I'm a positive guy. I'd like to think I'm a positive guy when it comes to looking at these teams and can't waiting and can't wait to see the young players and see how they do, but man. This has the potential of a disastrous start and I hope that doesn't happen man. I don't WanNa be fifteen games into the season and have these guys I don't know. Four and eleven. You know five and ten something like that I don't I? Don't WanNA. See that I'm afraid that that's what we are going to see. Yeah, I mean I don't also want to overreact to Marcus Stroman, not being there. It's not good I don't like the depth I. Don't like what's behind. These guys losing syndergaard end strowman sort of look at it like that. Both those guys not being there and not just losing Marcus Stroman, but remember now marcus stroman was and an average pitcher when he came over for. For the mets, last year wasn't great talk, they won every start that he was in, but the expectation for him this year was he was going to bounce back. You is going to be very good for them. He was going to fill that hole that was left by Zack Wheeler leaving, and of course Noah syndergaard being hurt and you're not going to see him have that opportunity? But you know this is not losing Jacob Degrom I. Mean Let's get real about it I didn't know what to expect from Marcus Stroman. Big, of a and we talked about this just yesterday, the day before there was as big a question mark on Marcus, Stroman as there was any of these other guys going into the season whether it was Stephen Matt's Michael. WAKA report Selah. We don't know so. That's the way to maybe look at it. Glass half full if Jacob degrom back, situation turned into something really a few days ago, that would have been the death. Blow for this team. I still think that they can overcome the loss of. Of stroman. The issue is bodies at this point. Know the back end of the rotation. You felt like you had at least a professional pitcher being your fifth starter at some point when stroman was healthy. Now you don't know what the hell you're going to have. An and the question is Lugo. Take him out of the bullpen. Make him a starter again or not. Now you've got this where it's just so maddening to me that you can't count on these guys in the back end of the bullpen. Because if you could, it's a no brainer. Because Edwin D has comes over the post closer in baseball. And then you've got Jerry's familiar coming over with the reputation that he has. If those guys, you could count on adding Betances as well. I'm fine taking Lugo out of there, but what I remember last year is there's one guy in that bullpen that I could trust and that guy was Seth Lugo. Lugo and I am not mentally ready to pull him out of there and stick him in the rotation and leave it up to those guys so maddening about this. It should a no brainer and I don't know what they're gonNA end up doing I think they're gonNA end up leaving them in the bullpen. Well, you know and I know it's probably Is probably the right thing to do, but I also know just how important starting pitching is especially pitchers that can go into the sixth and seventh inning to get to those bullpens that. Are Lockdown bullpens like the Yankees have, but this is really I mean look. I don't know what to tell you. What I heard it yesterday on Joe and Evan and they were talking about it I was like well. You know what here we go again. And this is really really unfortunate, and it's not like I expected mark to go out there and win the Cy Young, but I did expect him to be a legitimate starting pitcher who has had success in this league, and because the regional nature of the sport this year, and because of the teams that we are playing in the American League East. He has. With those teams so I figured. At least maybe five hundred pitcher. At least he'll eat up the innings that that are that are required each and every time you go out, and at least he'll go out and compete now that he's not there, and because they they lost wheeler, and they, of course as you said loss syndergaard to injury I mean it is just like you are going into this with. Even Steven, Matt's is a question mark I mean come on every single one of them. Other than Jake degrom is a question mark now, and you could make an argument that as it stands right now with the uncertainty of all of it that could be the worst rotation in the NL used maybe better than a Miami Mall that's about it. Yeah I mean that that's about it I I I'm facing a better pitcher every single day with the exception of one Jake degrom is out there and. Grandma is going up against daughters. You know they're going to be at least close to what he is well sure shares are Cole I mean guys like that. I mean that are going to be right exactly, so for sure now I. I will say that the low risk. Cairo award guys that were brought in by Brodie van wagon. There is a high reward still attached to them. You can't dismiss that especially in a six game season in a game of baseball where you know someone like Rick Portillo especially think about Portillo's career. It's bad year. Goodyear bad. You're good. Your last year was a bad year. He's going to the National League and he's someone I can see filling that void now. It's no lock. There's no doubt about it, but let's not dismiss the fact that Portillo could put together a pretty damn good year for the mets this year and I'm actually expecting him to and Steven Matt's. I've seen so much inconsistency from him. It's hard for me to be positive, but maybe this is it. Maybe this is the year Michael Walker I got to see it. I mean I. Really do need to see that there is a you remember when brody. So. Funny, why one of these things that he should have never said when he became general manager, like he said a lot of crazy stuff, mixed metaphors and he guaranteed things. There's just crazy one of the things that he said in the beginning. was you know we have to eliminate the if's? There's a lot of if's on this roster and we need to eliminate the he came in. And made more if than I've seen. The mets have. Now, it's not all his fault. It isn't but when you lot of it is like Jed Lowrie was has been an if and then a no, are you bringing to guys who are as big ifs as you could possibly imagine in porcelain and walk now. I know. He didn't expect them to be in this position. He expected them to be depth starters fifth starters six start someone goes down. They ended up being in the rotation. But you know those are big. IFS Keeping, Stephen Stephen. Matt's around is a major. If I mean even Marcus. Stroman turned into more of an if then anything else you. An assessment is if Robinson Cano in if Dom Smith is iffy. IS HE GONNA play today? Where is he going? Play is just so many of these unanswered questions on the mets roster. You'd risked you just don't know how it's going to go, and you wouldn't be surprised if they ended up winning their division or ended up going the worst team in it. We can. Be Adjusted. Just has to be adjusted. There's no question about it and my optimism is certainly adjusted downward I and I'm usually guy that. I. Think that the glass is half full. And I want to fill it to the top. There's no question about it, but when you lose. Are syndergaard now stroman. That's three fifths of last year starting rotation that at the end of the year gave the mets a chance every time one of those guys stepped on the mound to win the ballgame, and the younger players starting to come around started to have exciting moments when they traded for Stroman. It was almost like a shot in the arm. Like Hey, we're still in this out of it and. And we all know why he made the trade. He made the trade for Stroman because he knew he was going to lose. We are and they're. We're not gonNA. Pay Him, so. It was a moment in time where they had an opportunity. Unfortunately, it didn't work, although did the team was exciting, and it became very likable but I'm telling you right now? With this starting rotation away, it looks and the history. There's one guy that you can count on, and that's why I would not be surprised if they put Lugo out of the bullpen I don't think they will. I know he wants to be a starter I. I'd feel more comfortable with him. Being Star, I believe because right now there are nothing but question marks those guys. No, no question mark without a doubt, one hundred percent and those guys in the bullpen. There's a lot of question marks there as well. Let's not forget as much as I love delicate dance in that signing. He's coming off a major injury. Tear the Achilles, so you got to see him perform in a mets uniform, and it's not a lock him coming out of that Yankees bullpen and he's going to be great, but those guys have to be great. If the mets are going to have any success now because I'm not counting on the rotation now, it could end up being better than we. We think but I'm not gonNA count on it. If they're going to have any success this year, they've gotta hit the hell out of the ball. Pita Lonzo's gotTA. Do the same thing again you an assessment. This has to be a massive thorn in the side of opposing pitching staffs as a d. h. you're going to have to have Jeff McNeil that. Key almost hitting four hundred guy again all that stuff has to happen again and the bullpen has to be great now. If you tell me that Edwin Jerry's familiar delon, pretentious and Seth Lugo are going to be great that I then then I'm feeling good about it, but that's that's the problem. I'm trying to create the scenario in which it could work, but there is no fate essentially blind faith that you're having. I'm not saying that's going to happen, but that's how the mets can be good because right now when I look. Look at the rotation pass Jake. It's it's it's rough. It is rough. Hey, today's July twenty third. I'm telling you. It'll be the dodgers and the Yankees and the world series market down. We all know it. Both teams are loaded. Mookie Betts just got his new contract and by the way. If you compare mookie Betts as contract, which is one hundred percent, all guaranteed by the way, and he got a sixty five million dollars signing bonus to that. Patrick Mahomes, Patrick Mahomes only got ten million dollar signing bonus and Patrick Mahomes. It's about four hundred and fifty million dollar contract, and then there are certain things that he can do each and every year to get over five hundred million, the likelihood of him seeing the end of that contract is very unlikely. Given the history of the NFL mookie Betts is going to get every single three, hundred sixty five million dollars, and he got that sixty five million dollar contract in a year, in which is twenty seven million dollars contract has been whittled down to ten million, so he'll make seventy five million dollars this year in a sixty game season. And good for Mookie Betts, because of course the situation in Boston, he should have never had to leave there now. Unfortunate now to the great organization in a city. That's going to be a lot of fun for him. He's a superstar in baseball so I. Love to see that a second largest contract of course in major league baseball history only behind Mike Trout, but takes I was seeing yesterday. Really making me angry I the Oh in the baseball owners, said they. They were poor. I saw a lot of that stuff yesterday. In multiple tweets. First of all the dodgers are never going to be poor there the dodgers you look at their TV deal. It is astronomical and they've been winning that. Nobody ever thought that the L.. A. Dodgers were going to have financial issues, and then also on top of it. They're not handing. mookie Betts three hundred sixty five million dollars tomorrow. I mean they're going to pay him sixty five. Five million, okay, but not three hundred sixty five million dollars, and that's different, and you start to think about the health of the sport and the health of the franchise as we get back into more normal baseball seasons, and he's going to be worth every penny, so yeah, it was a Lotta money that he was handed, but it's the dodgers, and that's what we expect. We never thought when this thing was going on. Even though the Yankees have been taking hits. Hits. There's no doubt about everything's been taken a hit. We never thought the Yankees. We're going to go in the red. They weren't going to go under. I mean they've been able to take care of their employees. For the most part as far as we know, they've done a great job through because the Yankees and the dodgers are are not that far behind where the Yankees are as far as the health of a franchise, so it just I don't know. When things crop up like that the residual effect from the Players Association and Major League Baseball's fight when you see contracts like this. It's the fact. Still remain baseball players. Association would be happy about a contract is. Given the the circumstances one hundred percent. It's like now now. Here's another interesting when you start talking about contracts and start talking about leverage. Start talking about you know. What does the team going to do with a particular player? Well our Guy Jamal Adams basically had something handed to him on a silver platter yesterday, so if he doesn't WanNA play for the New, York jets and he wants to. Use, what is happening over Great Britain in regards to A. Investigation to ambassador Woody Johnson in comments that he's supposedly made which he is obviously come out and denied putting quarter, according to Jamal everything that Woody Johnson said or has been accused of saying, he said. Basically, he is just say yeah, he's guilty. We gotta get rid of, them. This is like a thing that the jets did not want to have to deal with and especially under the current circumstances of the political landscape with in sports and player as. Deemed as he sees himself as a running lot as a player so. You now have a `nother situation that the jets have got the deal with and whether or not. Bomb shows up for training camp. Who knows and when he does show up. It is going to be awfully awkward. Given his comments yesterday. Yeah, so a couple of things one. You're right. We these are these are allegations that were made against what he Johnson as we have found out before you know rushing to judgment on whether or not something happened or didn't happen isn't smart if he did say it. Everybody knows that that's not breaking news. We all know that everybody shares that opinion. If Forty Johnson indeed said those things. That's really really bad, and you'll have to suffer the consequences of that now as far as Jamal Adams goes as Jamal. Adams ever dealt with Woody Johnson has ever even been around what he Johnson's been around, and who has been there Christopher. Johnson has gone out of his way to make Jabali Adams comfortable every frigging turn, and I know that to be a fact now you WanNa complain about Christopher Johnson's ability to run a franchise, and how the Johnsons on their tenures jets owner is not been great. Sure we can have that discussion, but as it pertains to. Jamal Adams. I know for a fact that Christopher. Johnson has tried his best to make him as comfortable as possible Nelson me appreciates him. All the time reached out during that trade deadline. Personally Multiple Times come up to my office. Let's talk. Let's figure this out. He has been there at every turn to make this guy feel wanted loved everything else because he does indeed care about him deeply wants him to be a jet. So that's the thing that pissed me off a lot about this now. What he? Johnson will put that aside I think that's. That's a totally different thing, but here's Jamal. Adams acting as if like woody Johnson was around him, didn't care about him has been terrible owner for the jets wall. Jamal Adams has been there when the reality is Jamal Adams, and what he I don't even know if they've ever spoken to one another day. Probably have been I'm sure what he's been over there. At some point over the last two years, but really Christopher Johnson has been the guy who's been dealing with consent, and has been bending over backwards for a lot of different people and. Try to reveal the franchise, and hopefully doing it the right way, and getting the right people in there running including Joe Douglas. But you knew you knew that you knew the second. That story came out his twitter. Account what he said about it. Yeah, exactly yeah, and he just and. He probably. I don't want. I shouldn't assume but I let's just say this. I! It's not far fetched to think that Jamal Adams was pleased when he saw this story percents because it helped his cause now. I'm not saying he's not offended by the things that were said in there and upset by that, but also I. It's not far fetched to think that he goes. Wow, this is just another thing that's going to help me get out of here. Because how could I possibly play for an organization? That's got a guy associated. It's going to say those things so I, mean I. Don't know I. I'm not in any way defending woody. Johnson of what he said was true, but it's just the reality is true. We don't know. He actually came out tonight. Every put out a statement, so so so did the jets. We also have to understand that we are in a presidential election year woody Johnson happens to be one of the bigger supporters for Donald Trump financially. That's why he's got that job that he has right now. They they also. Were claiming last week that Woody Johnson supposedly putting pressure on the British government to force them or not the not the force them, but try to direct them towards one of Donald. Trump's golf courses over there in Britain, so they could have the open championship there, so all of that stuff is coming now because we're living in a sewer pit of a society that is just absolutely trying to take everybody down, and and it's. It's all now coming together and Jamal Adams season opportunity to get the hell out of here again. Jet Fan Loves Jamal Adams Jet Fan thinks that he's a great player. Christopher Johnson, who has not been accused of anything loves Jamal Adams Right. Joe Douglas and so does the Adam Gates? Jamaa Adams is manufactured this whole thing in his brain and to me. It's really unfortunate because the fan base loves them. The team actually does love him. He's playing under a certain financial circumstance that you know look when you're drafted high in the draft like he was. There are certain steps that you have to go through now. Here's the one thing I will say. Whether he is really truly committed to forcing the jets to trade him. You know we'll find out because I this also maybe a away for the jets just end up paying just. Just the perception of the whole thing we're GonNa pay you. You're going to be the highest paid safety. We're all this guaranteed money and you're going to be with the jets and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah, and you know given what Jamal Adams said yesterday if he now signs a contract with the jets, just total fraud. Total. Fraud Right Yep, so yeah, I mean. Let's if this is about not playing for this organization. Let's see I. I don't know what the jets are. GonNa do I. Don't know what the negotiations have been like, but I would love to see them. Put in front of him. The richest contract that a safety has ever seen the see if he sticks to his guns or not, that would be a great call of the bluff. It really would be going to be I mean if he signs it. He's going to get crushed by a lot of people because he's just full of Baloney. I haven't said that in a long time. Baloney! Thinking about this and you know our our co worker Joe Beningo God love them. You have this what he? Johnson Jamal Adams thing now. You have the stroman injury syndergaard injury, and it's the medicine, the jets and here we go, we want one's getting ready to start the season. The other one's getting ready to start training camp, and you have to major issues or a number of major issues for both teams that are negative that are going to impact these teams in in different ways, and I was just thinking the show yesterday thinking man I'm telling you I'm a fan. Fan Too but I mean. How many more hits to the head. Can you take well if you're Joe Beningo and you are a dyed-in-the-wool jet and met fan well. At least he's got the knicks right. You can always fall. You always fall back on next week I mean think about this get. We think about this just, can you? You're wordsmith. Is there any way that you could put into words like the last twenty four hours? In Jet Fan. freaking disaster, grow freaking disaster, eight, seven, seven, three, three, seven, sixty, six, sixty six.
