"There's a wildcard game going on right now. We're taping this Tuesday night and let me see. Oh my God three nothing brewers I went nats run line and I went this is great I went nats or online and I bet under four and a half home runs in the game which was even and the bruise to its great grand. AL homered good job by sure about. That's another first extending homerun style. Did he really yeah as I five. I thought he had a good first five or something I was like. He hasn't really been good in September but he's shut down. The Moore's a mess. I'M GONNA lose this all right but there's other games than there's the raise AIDS tomorrow. Then the established series Atlanta's Saint Louis later in the week the Yankees twins then dodgers will play the winner of the National League Wild Card and the Astros win of the American League wild-card now. These astros are a two two one favourite to win it. All that's as low as it gets right guys entering the playoffs but said one hundred seven wins they they really do seem like they have the arms. They have that one stat with balls and play which is lower than anyone the lead in the last decade or something. It's crazy I'm GonNa give you you guys a chance who he got the best bet you can go to Beaune. Go World Series. You can go nationally American league. You can go series and one of these established matchups. Let's start with you. Paulie kit well. I'M NOT GONNA play around here sal and for as much as I would love to see he my Yankees and brother Bras the Yankees advanced to the world series. I just don't think they can get by the Astros so I'm taking the Astros and dodgers as the world series matchup at plus two seven kind of an interesting number right there but yeah I mean I I think so look. I'll give you the reasons for not taking the Yankees because I'm a Yankee Fan but Brian knows this if they're fortunate enough to get through the first round which I think they they will defeat the twins and I think the ash will take care of business on there and Yankees just have too many holes in their line up in terms of strikeouts and what these power arms is that the Astros are going to throw out you. They're just the most well rounded team right now the Yankees if I too many injuries to overcome they just lost their You know her mind and they're winning pitcher this year. Due to the domestic violence issue which obviously well-deserved on his part to be suspended I and and they bullpen is tiring right now for the Yankees this ashes team has they have they've gone through any type of Haven't they've been peaking. I think towards yeah the Yankees I think a little getting a little tired I think with all the injuries catching up this asa team is still surging so burland go Co Cranky this pitching staff I and batting average against third and they are a second whip and look at the same formula for the dodgers with their pitching staff the second in batting average against I in whip second in the IRA to great staffs. This is what it comes down to the the playoffs both these teams kind of on a mission to make it this year to the world series plus two. Oh seven still like the fact that I'm getting some some decent odds there. I I think this is the match up. Let's take all right. That's interesting because it's a almost the same odds as the Astros just to win the world series so you could take the astros hope I hope they get by the NFL team and not have to worry if the dodgers get upset but on the other hand you think dodgers could maybe beat them in the world series right. Is that why you would take that. I think I think they're the one team because they can match up with the arms. You know their arms can match up. I still think the Astros would be the favourite in that world series. That's for sure but there's anything that can go with the dodgers right Harry. You tried to take the nationals today. Eh and I was like no don't do stupid. We're going to be doing a podcast during that game. They might not be around and you're not going to get eight to one odds anyway. Anyone who's listening because the Jim Cunningham is GonNa put this up later tonight and all right but I'm telling you now. They're down three nothing anyway it doesn't it doesn't really matter then you switch gears. You went back to your old roots. The Atlanta braves aged yeah. The Atlanta braves four to one to win the National League pennant. I'm last year. Brave did get a taste of the post season. Listen three games to one of the division service to Los Angeles they only batted one fifty four team then they only had two home run now to get to the dodgers in the National League Championship series area something the braves can do a lot. This year is a lot of home runs remain at thirty eight hundred twenty one are easing the Kunia junior at forty one Donaldson Jonathan at thirty seven and I love this matchup against the cards. The cards were twenty four in the majors and Homerun while the braves were eighth. cardinals twenty third in the average when the braves were at nine and the bridge also seventh in runs scored cardinals nineteenth. I think this is the sweep of the braves against the cards and then when they get the dodgers if it turns into defense at the dodgers at twenty five more errors in the braves did and I know it's a long shot because the dodgers I just are rolling everywhere except maybe if you can keep it close and get a couple of home runs these games close killys. He'll for the dodgers really is closer. Oser Count Kenley Jansen I mean I don't know if he's GonNa. He's no guaranteed so do you go to Medina instead. You know what that certain juncture in the eighth or ninth inning because Janssen. There's no guarantee right all right. Br You hate this. Pick you hate this braves. Pick we were all over the cardinals ride around mid season right we had them the win the division and and whether I would would we love them the win division right well to make the playoffs there. I think midway through the season they were forty four and forty four. They finished up the cardinals finished. It's a forty seven hundred twenty seven the second half but there were like three to one to make the playoffs at that point in time. I'm not even I can't even remember what they were to win. The division was probably like five to one five or six but can I say what is it with Harry between it's like I know you say he has quirks in terms of what he picks between like upstate New York Arizona or Atlanta you. I knew as soon as you told him he couldn't pick the national tonight. I knew it was gonna be the break. It's just something about Atlanta. Yeah you know what I know. You're right. I should just let them take the nationals and then he talked his way out of it. He would have had a hype up the nationals who were down on three nothing now and that would have been the way to go to the watching the dodgers. Aren't we bored of it. Come on let's get somebody flushing there. By by the way the braves also at the same record on the road of the dodgers so they won't be afraid to go to Shabazz Rabin steal a game like the cardinals you can find them to find the cardinals against Atlanta. That is in this year so you can find them. I was looking for value. I didn't really love value in any of the first round matches. I thought this this is the only one that gives you a little bit of value anywhere from Plus One plus one thirty like we said second after year they've they've played great forty seven and twenty seven they had they were the top five year eight for starters and relievers this year which is going to be key in the playoffs. Um especially with the League relievers. They get clarity for two of the five starts and he's been one of the best pitchers in baseball so far. I just think they're veteran bats while they have been so inconsistent. Throughout the year I think between Goldschmidt Uzun ah some some of those guys are going to get some key hits in this series and I said the cardinals Wenden five and Brian I saw the cardinals at seven to one to win the National League and it's not bad because they they played tough they played the dodgers toughest Chavez Ravine and at the swap them when they went to Saint Louis. I'm pretty sure that was the case so they're going to be. I I think they're gonNA be around the knee and now parlay kid. You did something I don't know if you meant to do this but you put the Yankees in the Al Cs against the Astros that I'd say not so fast yeah I know they won four six against the twins dad. That was a crazy series in July fifty-seven combined twenty home runs but I I think that this is being played in the first week October before it gets cold and the bats die at that favors the twins a little severino played this team start against them in the wildcard twenty seventeen. He got one out and he was out. I just can't believe the home runs. I know it doesn't matter late October but it might still got Nelson Cruz cruise Kepler Encino. There's one hundred resign another thirty one. I think like eight players hit twenty or more home runs you can have happened. Sobat the could end up in the bullpen they have trouble against righties you brought up all the problems with Paxton and can RCA on what's going to be with these guys. I think there's going to be a million pitchers used in the series. It's GonNa be a crap absolute. I'd rather have the plus one forty five you little you have to be a little nervous about this twin steam rights yeah. I'm very nervous. I think you know the Yankees. It's hard ought to say when the Yankees overachieved you know sell like because nobody wants to hear that there's still a team with a big payroll and but I really do think they overachieved this this year the twin remarkable. Nobody wants to hear that with the twins. The twins of have had a remarkable year for themselves. I think anything less than the Yankees wanted to get bounced out of this around. against the twins. I think it would be be termed the disappointment for the Yankees. I think they'll just find a way to get through this. Here's I don't buy like well how the Yankees have owned the twins and the playoffs. This is team has nothing to do with any teams that have beaten the twins teams over the years really and vice versa for the twins teams as different. Work Ball Delis done a great job job as their manager over there for the twins yeah I'm worried about it and I do believe that season Kinda turn be a bust for the Yankees to not get through this round. I you know what was it you or was it..

"Seven twelve and no news at the top of the hour. All right. Let's go to curtain Frazier. You're on sports talk hurt. How you doing Ron? I'm hanging in there. What's up number forty four on Halloween number forty four Mr. skit stretch McCovey? Yeah. He'd been he'd been in a wheelchair for several years. He was eight years old. How long was in a wheelchair? He was in a wheelchair for five years. I think only five years I thought it was longer. Now. What would he came up? He was one of the most fear hitters was only twenty one years old and he won the nineteen Fifty-eight rookie of the year. It come up at twenty one. And then of course, he was in the nineteenth semi Kobe mckearney. Cubby? Mccovey cove and it got for me with McCovey cove. Yeah. He he was in a wheelchair. Oh, I thought it said long before that nine two thousand ten. Eight years. Of course in nineteen sixty two he made the last out in a one nothing game seven of the World Series where Ralph Terry shutout Jack Stanford and a line drive. Bobby Richardson as I'm second and. There was a guy on third and second could have won the game with a single and Bobby rich his Abdo ball. And it went right in his glove a line shot. It looked like it shouldn't do you? Remember, what happened before that Kurt? Not the game that game. No, no. Or they have about three rain outs in a row. Doc. Look at the back that's here World Series and see if they had to at least story announcing her I remember that day. Everybody's waiting for the game seven. But it wasn't a game seven. It was after game five will wait on October that tent they didn't play game six until October the fifteen so there was five days between game five in game six you're right. They went to San Francisco, and it started raining and it couldn't play for three days. But then he did play five two to the giants won game five but they lost game game six. They lost game seven hundred. I think Ralph Terry shuts out the giants won around Terry Lee. What around Terry do after he left baseball. I don't know pro golfer. Looking Ralph Terry. Uh-huh. Yeah. Ralph Terry PGA tour. I didn't know that the baseball stance. But what about golf stats? But think about this lineup. They had Willie Mays Willie McCovey okay in Orlando Cepeda up there. It's right there at the top. Okay. Here we blew the former manager who was the leadoff batter. And that team Bolivia Lou. I don't want to play golf stats mailing McCovey subpoena, Jim, Davenport, and Jose guy. Pretty good players there too. Then in nineteen golfer. That's what I wanna know. I don't care about the birdie averages, I don't care about the little birdies. He started. I event was in nineteen eighty nine. No, it's his eighty one eighty two others this. Eighty one eighty two and it goes to eighty nine. I have no idea what that means. Five hundred twenty one career home runs. Here's another one pass away. Ryan Bill Fisher former tiger pitcher. Do you? Remember Bill Fisher? He was traded by the Chicago White Sox with Tito Francona to the Tigers in nineteen fifty eight beret booed and Bob Shaw. One of the first Boone drove in one hundred runs with the tiger third base. Very underrated play this kid could play not a kid play. He's no longer with us. He could play third base. He drove in runs yet. Power reboost heck of a heck of a ballplayer. Well, the Tigers weren't very happy with Bill Fisher. So they they let them go on waivers, and he was picked up by Washington. And then later Washington traded him back to the Tigers for time. Morgan tigers. Remember, my Dinu time one big right handed pitcher, Tom Morgan. Yup. And he didn't do so well for the Tigers the second time either. So finally the Tigers traded him in nineteen sixty one with Ozzie Virgil the first black player. The Tigers head to the Kansas City athletics for Reno Batory and Gerry Staley. Remember, Jerry Reno Pretoria was a friend of mine from Windsor. It was eighty eight years old he passed away October the thirtieth Bill Fisher from Wisconsin. He died in council bluffs, Iowa who's refinisher ill Fisher billfish who was Michigan pitcher Fischer Fritz Fisher was there. Hang fisher. No, not hang Fisher. What Bill Fisher was from right in right handed reliever. I think it's best years were with Kansas City. You might remember them pitch for anybody. Anybody was only four and twelve one year in sixty two. And he he pitch briefly with. Washington. I thought he pitched with Minnesota. But I don't think he ever got any games with Minnesota who am I gonna I'm reading the Ralph Terry Brown Terry will teed up with the likes of Sam Snead Joetta Clark wherever you Doug for Jerry barber kill Nagel and Tommy bolt in the in the senior tour and he won. I can't go further. I can't understand all that. Well, and nothing else. Okay. Did he ever win any money on the PJ ter-? We're just looking at that too. I guess he would have been on the Minnesota Twins Bill Fisher. By the way, he was with watching him when he switched over to the Minnesota Twins. And then he was dealt to Detroit. Remember under Bill billfish? I'm talking about Terry route terriers a golf right on. I've never knew he was gone. Yeah. You know, you, you know, with the year he had with the Yankees and sixty two. Yeah. Twenty three and twelve. I didn't every year that was the Yankees were. But I didn't think Ralph Terry one twenty three games. Keep going down. If we get more golf. He had no trouble. Then keep going at that Exon of their out of their game seven or the World Series shut up bashing that something the senior tour started in one thousand nine hundred eighty and he went on that. He was twice a champion of the midwest section the PGA and played the several PGA tour events. It was also sixteen in three year before nineteen sixty one. He's going to get eight forty two winning percentage. Right curtis. He was a good pitcher Ralph Terry or two years he was thirty nine and fifteen and a two year span you said you mentioned Jack Sanford, India. He pitched against them. Science Jack, Sanford, number Jack, Sanford was considered. Tougher. Pitchers like to be interviewed David pitcher talk to they see Jack Sanford would be a nut. If you ever went up and talk to him when he was in San Francisco, he would just get the locker look straight ahead and glare anybody. That'll even look at them. So he had a reputation, but he was a good guy. And when you have a four days off in the middle of a World Series, you can rest all your pictures upright. So these guys who are well rested going into this World Series, Jack Sanford in nineteen sixty two he wasn't twenty four ballgames US twenty four seven he was no slouch. You know, Jerry one's sixteen ballgames and sixty three I don't know why the giants never got to the World Series. Again. You know, they were such a good team Willie Mays and McCovey, and they never got the dodgers beat him up for a few years in a row. And then of course, later on in Cincinnati. Is a big red machine was built up in the seventies. But the giants just never accomplish what they should've. They never had enough pitching best one. Marcel. You know, they had water Marchelle in Gaylord Perry, but they didn't really get good third and fourth starters ever get back to the World Series. You can you hit the nail on the head? Just like the Tigers. When will they get a good pitching staff again like they had. But I'm sure glad. Pictures developed. That's all you do. You're not going to do you're going to go and get a veterinary. So that could last year that's all you're going to do on that similar to what they did last year. With the guy that got from from Houston who did a good job over. That's what you gotta go. Get in the movement the end of the year and get a prospect and just let the pitchers develop in the minor leagues. And when they're ready bring him up and look out it looks like the dodgers got a sweet deal. They're keeping Clayton Kershaw or the price of only twenty eight million dollars only twenty. That's real the real special price. Some incentives, but they got a bargain price for him. Of course, maybe like stick playing for the badgers. It's an ex out there in Los Angeles. Nice weather look at his numbers, Kurt. We're going to look up as numbers in the playoffs because they're not pretty pose the name again Clayton Kershaw. Yeah. All right. Well, remember what daddy MacLean says it's not so easy playing in the play offs. The best players are playing against you. Don't always have the best numbers. Look at all the guys that you should be considered the best pitcher then. Well, he's the best pitcher in the regular season. But we're talking about the regular season tired. Post-season ever go. Postseason. What do you got for him? Oh my goodness in several several ones to starting in two thousand eight. Nine and ten with a four point seven four ERA. How many people get nineteen decisions in playoffs? That's a lot. The dodgers. Get there year after year after year six seasons in a row now, they're not paying attention. Now. Let me tell you another stat Ted. Eight hundred. I just told you. Four point. Oh, wait a minute. Hold on. Four point three two that was this percentage. I don't need. That's worse Jack area and regular so. Yeah. Yeah. And here's the deal in one hundred and fifty two innings in nominee years twelve years something like that. He's given up twenty two home runs. That's not. You got him many gets to the playoffs. Crate regular season. What does regular season stats whose regular seasons? Heads are much better than them. And some. Yup. One fifty three and sixty nine with a two point three era. Hold on. Sound on a second. Hold on. Three years. I looking right on this three years. Yeah. Era. One point three one point seven seven and one point six nine. That's unbelievable in this era. You don't see that in this era? But no, you don't stadium is a great. It's a great pitching ballpark. And it wasn't before when they first moved Shabazz Rabin. I think they called it when they first moved to Los Angeles. Nobody liked playing at Wrigley field out there Wrigley field Wrigley field. It was a bowl shaped. It was only two hundred and fifty feet to left field. You don't shine back then. And I thought he should have been a better player was with the Tigers. But his home run power was to centerfield Steve bilko said all sorts of records out there. Steve don't go KO. His stance moved to that. Go ahead. We're we're looking at Steve bilko stats. Could he swing that bath? He had power. The I l L o not belco. Bill Steve bilko. Yeah there. It is right here. Yeah. Whenever they moved to when the Dodger Stadium on a pitchers loved that. Okay. Let's look at here. Kovacs was there. Well, you're looking at Kovac total process. Not this wait a minute here. Sandy Kovacs of our era. They said the best left handed pitcher in baseball ten years pro stats, not big league stats. That's what he played in Wrigley field. Bandbox over there. Saint Louis cubs. Dodgers Tigra staffs. Not major league stats when he was in the minor leagues. That's what I want to see. Oh, minor league said pro stats. That's a minor league is pro then you're going to see some numbers up their, holy moly. Oh area. Okay. Let's see we got. Okay. This look at KiKi Kuna. Listen the Pacific coast league. In seven hundred nine times up. Holy macro. Fifty five homers one hundred sixty four Rb is the next year with. He had fifty six homers one hundred and forty RBI's boy. Yeah. Like four hundred RBI three years span there in the Pacific coast league in that. That's what you're talking about Wrigley field. Right. He only played part of one year in Detroit. I remember Hennion breakfast with him one time and not one thousand nine hundred sixty six nine thousand nine hundred sixty I remember sitting in the who Robinson's across the screen Steve bilko is in there. We we sat and talked for a while. But you don't depend with Steve bilko was. What the problem he had his he was his power was in centerfield, and he had probably twenty balls at tiger stadium that were caught in nets four forty to eighty like it was in LA four forty and Tigers. So you know, he went he went to the angels after he played for the Tigers. And he twenty home runs after he only at nine with the Tigers. So you did have some power, you know? I just the power fifty five and fifty six homers and then ballpark in two years. The trouble trouble as he didn't get to the major leagues tell he was thirty one years old by then he was worn out old, man. He's worn out. I don't know if he was worn out. That guy had signed her leaks when he was in his late twenties. The major leagues like twenty. Homerun? So let me you who probably maybe missing somebody here. But who I thought had besides him had the most power to center field with the Tigers. Besides Steve bilko. Earl wilson. Oh, I remember off the.

"It's a good call by you, try I love hash Browns. But if I can only have one weird world where I could only have one. Oh, mike. I can't believe we're making me say this. I'm gonna take bacon. Bacon while done well done. I wish was so convicted in two minutes. You're so convicted boy that lasted all of two minutes. That's how quickly Golkar anyone get really Jade opinion on any. You are like that the dog in the movie up, squirrel. Line of sight, suddenly go somewhere else. All right. Let's start here. Because we've been having this conversation based on what happened yesterday at Shabazz Rabin Clayton Kershaw seven strong innings three hits one run nine strikeouts. He gets another dominant performance. He's got two of them. This post-season. We added Duardo Perez on earlier who basically said the Clayton Kershaw. Can't do it in the postseason has been put to bed. Your thoughts. I has not been put to bed. Listen, we all know that Clayton Kershaw is one of the greatest pitchers that ever page in major league baseball history. We all know that we can all agree on that. But you are defined the just about any sport on what you do on the postseason, and what your team does in the postseason. I hurt. Mike Golic talking about this a little bit on my way in and Mike. I know it's it's over for you. But as a team his teams with him being the best pitcher, maybe the best pitcher ever has not won a World Series. So Clayton Kershaw was great yesterday, but Clayton Kershaw day with Clayton Kershaw was supposed to do yesterday. That's what an ace is supposed to do. Clayton Kershaw doesn't do it all the time in the postseason. In fact, try I would tell you. He may be does it half the time the ER a right now is four point one one career for the postseason. He's nine and eight in the postseason trade. Let me do it this way in a world where I tell you a guy is pitching a game and your life depends on the outcome of him winning. That game and his team winning that game. Are you your Yankee fans? Right. David Wells, David Cone, L Duquet named Andy Pettitte, are you taking Clayton Kershaw over any of those pictures trade that I've just named in a one game scenario. Probably not you're not no. But here, but that's still hold on. Hold on those are in my opinion. Just so, you know, those are two separate arguments because I do love you, you cannot Tim courage and BUSTER only you cannot say that Clayton Kershaw is the greatest pitcher of all time yet he has that postseason record at his team has never won a World Series. I agree with that Marino. No, one can tell me that. There was a better quarterback. Dan Marino on the planet ever physically the gift that he had the arm that he had. But how do we define quarterbacks? Dan, Marino wives. He never mentioned with Joe Montana. Didn't win a SuperBowl. Stuck in the post season. And he never wanted to. I agree with that. There's a lot to get into there. And I know you do the rings thing. Just so, you know, I don't know a lot of people do but an individual excellence, I don't do the rings thing. Because that is that is a team effort that is a team with Clayton Kershaw could be as good as he is for three starts in any postseason game seven and they still have to win another game. So the rings thing. I don't I I don't I do not do that. I know you do in a lot of people. Do I don't be like, for example, a lot of people flip the script on Peyton Manning because he won a second Super Bowl win that second Super Bowl. He was on the all hanging around team for that second Super Bowl. They should have won by thirty if he had played better. But he didn't. So to me, I don't do the rings thing. But I do understand what you're saying. The ERA is not great. But if you take out one team specifically that area drops dramatically, and that's the struggles he added against the Saint Louis cardinals in several postseason appearances. It's never gonna be completely put to bed because a lot of people like you do do the ring thing. But to me it's about. Are you good enough in that spot? And I do love we started this discussion with the idea of what you just said. He did wasn't what an ace was supposed to do last night. That's right. He did exactly what he had to do. Right. And so that's all he did. He did what he was supposed to do last night last game. He did not. And so now everyone's going to Russia was defense. Clayton Kershaw supporters that listen I realize how great of a pitcher. He is. I'm just saying he needs to be better than the postseason. If you look at Derek Jeter, Derek Jeter, essentially played an entire regular season in the postseason radio like six hundred at bats and something that's how many times they made the postseason and Derek Jeter's numbers translates to what it is. He would do if he played one hundred sixty two George Springer is way above that. Like what he's done in the postseason is way above normal. Average is is why people say he's a great postseason plyer, Madison. Bumgarner is the guy I trust more than Clayton Kershaw his numbers as good as Manson is the regular season his numbers, go up in the postseason, and that just hasn't been the case for Clayton Kershaw. That's right. You can go away. Yup. If he pitches well again here in the World Series and they go on to win the World Series. Yes. Some of this talk like I'll stop saying it. But until he does that no I'm going to sit here and tell you what Clayton Kershaw did yesterday was simply what Clayton Kershaw is supposed to do just about every store in the postseason. And again, I think what you're saying. There are two different things he can pitch well, and they can still not win the World Series. So to me if he goes out, and let's say two or three great starts in the World Series. That to me would be enough. I know I realize it wouldn't be for a lot of people. I look at the team teams win championships too many people count rings, which I definitely think as a mistakes joining us, Dan lebatardshow was to God's got a lot of topics. We want to get to a lot of different things to the NBA season opened up on Tuesday, your nicks one so you can have a moment on that. If you'd like, but you've already you've already crowned a team after opening night. Is that true? I yeah. I did listen I'm going to get out ahead on this one because everyone's gonna pick Golden State, and that's the easy place to go. And I don't blame. Everyone for pick them Golden State because I think it was weird. We talked about this last year. If you remember the injury to Gordon Hayward the injury to Kyrie Irving for the Boston, Celtics. I it was kind of a blessing in disguise because it allowed guys like Terry Rozier and Marcus smart at Jason Tatum. Jason Tatum built this copy. It's big Todd in that postseason. Jalen brown. It allowed those guys to get time in big time games in crucial minutes that they wouldn't normally get if Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving or there so that team in the Eastern Conference finals. And now you bring Gordon and Kyrie back into the man's at Jason Tatum is one year better. Jalen Brown is one year better. They had veteran guys like Al Horford. So I think clearly in the east the Celtics are the best team. And I think the Celtics play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals. And I do think that's going to happen. I think the Celtics are going to beat the Golden State Warriors. I really do. I think that good and that deep their that talent early take I was about to say coming out of the gate strong game one. Of eighty two the disarming. Listen, I I I respect it. I do I I did not. I gotta say I did not see that coming. Lonzo. Absolutely love it. But I do I do have a question for you guys. You guys more, Dan? And I were talking about this yesterday. Are you guys more intrigued by the upcoming NBA season or what? Kevin Durant is gonna do next offseason anymore. Draper. Forget even Kevin Durant. What's going to happen, the amount of free agents and or possible trades that may on next summer? I think are amazing. And I know you are one that has a problem with Kevin Durant going. I zero problem dude, go wherever you want. Don't care fine by me. But yeah. Next summer. Listen, we know Stu in radio what the summer's like, and you're looking for filler, and man, we're going to get really lucky with what's going to go on in the summertime. No doubt about that. You're you're right. It's amazing. What the NBA has done for us. The last four or five seasons. It's provided us God that where we would normally it back our bosses sometimes they don't take off in the summer anymore. Dirty little secret take off in the summer. Just baseball's going on. But no when you're talking about Kevin Durant won Blair could change the fortunes of an entire organization. That's going to be interesting. It's going to be there's going to be a lot of injury. And I'll tell you right now if he goes to the Knicks now, Kevin Durant. My personal record book has still not one NBA championship. But if he goes to the Knicks, and he wins one it will count as ten and so if he does that he'll have ten rings, subtract, the three that he went with Golden State. So have a total of seven ring. So is that all you is that all your knick fans are that's going to be buzzing around in your head Durant's not going to the Knicks. I mean, but that's really what did you all unit fans are gonna think next summer. Yeah. We're desperate desperate. I think that we will think that we thought about LeBron right up until Kevin Durant tells us is going. We do need to point out that a one time Golic, you're the guy that said there's no way LeBron's going to the Lakers. Yeah. I did say listen. I have no problem ever. Maybe I'm wrong ensures hell happens almost every day. All right. So that's that situation. Here's the other question. I have for you, Stu are you feeling better about the pick of Sam darnold now after another solid performance? The jets are suddenly a forty point juggernaut. Yes. Well, it was the colts. So let's be careful there. But and they gave up a lot of points. Those two games. I know I guess three games. Three three I'm inching closer to getting behind Sam darnold and picking a have a quarterback here for the next thing you it's so hard to read in the NFL. It really is. I don't know like the offense of line is so important having skill position players around that quarterback is so important. And so I don't know if we're not, you know, we're seeing the best Sam darnold fact, I'm guessing we're probably not like you could you could tell me better. I that. We're not seeing the best Sam darnold because I don't think that opens a line is very good skill position. Guys are very good as you know, the running backs it's is Ahah Copello belie Powell and their best wide receiver the last couple of weeks has been Anderson so Mike you tell me like the up and Sam darnold. What you think? Hey, there's a good offense of line there. And he has some skill boozing guys that this could be a good quarterback. I think it could be a good quarterback. I don't know if it's going to be a franchise changing. Quarterback news a turnover machine in college. And that doesn't just go away. Now, the better talent you have around him is going to help them. I do like him. I'd like what all these rookies have have brought to the strengths that they have. We're seeing some of those in the NFL, but they're still rookie so discount this year. Let's get to next year. Let's not have the Jared Goff moment. Let's let these guys get some talent around them. And then see what the you don't draft them for this year. You're drafting for ten years. So yeah, I'm fine. With the darnold thing right now. I want to get a couple of in on college before we get to your picks. The Nick bolster situation Nick Bosa surgery on his corps in September. His dad said he wasn't going to be back till December decides to withdraw from school and just get ready for the drop. You have any problem with any college athlete leaving his team really at any time. If he's looking to the future now because they're not paying them in college. I mean, and they are paying him. Listen, Nick Bose's thinking, hey, I don't need to be healthy for the Michigan game with the final.

"This was his last on his contract. So he's got a two year contract extension. I don't know people might be up in arms about that. I think the bar has been set higher. You know, miss the playoffs last couple of years, but we see the improvement. Now. Remember, it's the NBA, and there's only a handful of teams that really have a shot at winning this thing. And I just say that realistically. But I think the nuggets could do some damage in the season. Maybe get into the playoffs. Maybe you can get through that first series. But you got to play you gotta get yourself into the plants. You can't just be scraping your way in is an eight seed, that's no fun to go in against Golden State and just get swept out of there. Make some headway. Now, the now Michael Malone didn't have to worry about. He's got the contract extension players. Don't wonder what's going to happen after this season to start thinking you take that out of their minds. And now, you can just focus on basketball. And we'll see I think it's gonna be fun to watch him this year. We'll see. We'll see if the joker can step up that play and more man he was really good particularly down toward the back end of the season last year. It was fun to watch him. He keeps that to progression going. That's going to be something. So they'll tip off tonight at eight thirty mountain mountaintop. Welcome to the Western Conference in the nuggets. Nobody knows what to do with the nuggets. So so that's roller there. Back on the NFL real quick, the owners meetings, and it may have something to do with the nuggets and the avalanche and the Rapids and. The man. Stan Kroenke had to give up ownership of the nuggets in the apps because of an NFL rule that said you couldn't own another major sports franchise within the same city where there's other franchises competing in the NFL. Obviously stand has nothing to do with the Broncos. And so he had to give things up gave it to obviously to Josh crunchy. I don't know what it means. But the NFL has abolished that rule. So any one of the thirty two owners, and you may remember Paul and who passed yesterday. Owner of the Seahawks and the Portland trailblazers. And that was fine. There's no NFL team in Portland. But you see with somebody who has that kind of money able to spend that kind of money on players facilities and things like that. I think the NFL realized and really STAN cranky guy that could continues to within the family owned all of these things. I think that's probably a good thing. Maybe he comes back in. And I don't I don't know. Josh. I mean, obviously, I don't know STAN Kroenke that well either. But I do know what STAN Kroenke was able to build in the avalanche build in the nuggets, you know in years past. So maybe he'll have a little bit more influence. I know he's got a lot going on obviously they own arsenal in the Premier League as well. So they are spread saying you're going to have to have somebody that's paying attention to what's going on here. But I just wonder if that the changing of that rule take the rule barring any cross ownership sports franchises in different markets. We'll see the NFL talks in terms of boosting their league. But I've got to look more at the homegrown team or the home teams and seeing kind of how that's gonna work out anti-drug is on the other side of the glass and sitting and watching last night, the brewers and the dodgers and I see Manny Machado pull a stunt. The first thing I thought Anthony, I want to get your thoughts on this too. But the first thing I thought when it when it happened in in real time. I didn't realize it looks like he tripped over him. And that happens from time to time to first base when this close player, and you're hustling, you're you're just trying to get to the base. But man, he was out by a mile and I thought to myself, and that's like a beer league softball move with. You are trying to pick a fight. And it just didn't seem right. I I can't believe that somebody would do in that Bush league. No, it didn't look good. And and the thing that stood out to me once I was perusing twittering watching people's takes on the on. The matter is the eye contact that Machado made to the to his foot as it's going across. That's a move where you can you can bring your leg up, especially if you're looking at you cross first base that the intention there. The fact that he dragged it that long as he's going across. I like you said out out out pretty clearly when he looks down and makes that I contact. That's what makes you wonder, you know, that looks like it was pretty pretty on purpose. So it didn't look good. And the more you watch especially we watch in slow MO as I said, you you see him look down. It's not a good play. And that's how you can get players are ne- never want. See that not as the Machado over the last the last week or so has has had a couple of times. He's he's had his character called into. Question. We had the the topic of him saying, he's not going to be Johnny hustle. I think what it was and things like that kind of make you wonder especially guy who's probably about to get paid a lot of money in the off season. Yeah. That's the thing. He's he's a free agent after this season. I mean, the dodgers may decide to resign him owning. I mean, they've got they've got a lot of money and the dodgers. I don't know if they care about the character issue, or whatever I didn't realize this about Manny Machado. And that's on me. I guess because I don't pay as much attention to the American League. I understand he's he's a phenomenal player. I didn't realize it and following along. Like you were on social media. There were people that were not surprised by this way, we signed not running out, you know, the play at first base, and and those comments, but this has dogged him through his career that he does stupid things like this. And I. It would make some teams question. Whether they would want to sign him, he's hurting himself by doing this exactly is this the kind of guy that we want to invest upwards of two three hundred million in. I mean, this is a guy who gonna be a face of your franchise. He was for a long time for Baltimore and the dodgers taken a chance, and hopefully they're hoping they can potentially resign him. But yeah, these are these are the kind of moves, especially when they're coming at the end of the year national delegation when everyone's paying attention not that these not the end of season stuff is really going to sway one team and the other if they're going to go after a guy think the teams that have Manny Machado in their sights are probably going to still go after him. And maybe have those discussions on, you know, at the at the discussion table about about what what's taken place, and I'm sure some GM's also know what kind of guy he is rumor spreads and and in discussion spreads throughout major league baseball. So, but it is troubling, especially when all eyes are on them. And these things are still taking place. It definitely doesn't look good for him. Guys, come out to make a lot of money. Looks like the brewers are going to have to get after it. Now, it's what is it? Three three to game. Six gonna go back to. No, I it's let's see they won yesterday. Dodgers got. Yeah. Three one. So brewers got to get a win as okay set to go back to Milwaukee here. I really Milwaukee being the hottest team going Clayton Kershaw looked like the ace that he is. I mean, it's phenomenal tonight. And again, it up going eight innings and only gave up one run they end up end up bringing in kenley Jansen to kind of close things out. But you know, that's the Kershaw everybody kind of sees during the regular season. And you realize he's done that, you know, less than less than two runs. I think less than four hits or something like that five times in the postseason. There's so many kind of tweeted it out there a numbers might be off a little bit. Nobody else has done that. So you take what the the bad outing city has sometimes in the playoffs which actually was a couple of games ago. And then he turns around and does what he does tonight. This is a key. And he and Buehler swapped roles. He's last couple starts. It's been cursed has been so dominant and Buehler who early on and in throughout the season been had been dominant. He's had some struggles in the last couple starts so Kershaw Kershaw getting the monkey off his back a little bit. Postseason play. We'll see if it continues for him. Yeah. Yeah. Interesting. So there you go dodgers up three one. They they ended up winning today at Shabazz Rabin goes back to Milwaukee for a game five. All right. Dr David Schneider is gonna join us when we return here, and we'll see maybe being over the phone lines up. I I know we've kind of bounced around a little bit. We are definitely gonna talk a little bit more about the Broncos. I just a little nervous about the game. But I love the attitude that bonds going in. I'm hoping the rest of the team has kind of attitude to we'll talk.

"On KOA NewsRadio. Here we go. Trying to. Look at the positive side of things. Milwaukee Brewers have won ten games and row the hottest team in September continues into October and the Rockies bats have gone absolutely cold as we have turned to October. Welcome in everybody. We're going to open the phone lines up here in just a little bit. We get a little post game from manager bud black. It's got some interesting things to say to the tough loss by the Rockies four to nothing. Cory lopez. I said last night. Maybe I should stop saying and try different things because we're got to get out of this funk here a little bit. But I'm calling you a glutton for punishment because here he is again morning show. Mike Christ comes back in here after doing I think Iraqis countdown. Although I mean, somebody's got honest in the newsroom, you know, about not having the rally kept Senator. I said, you know, what you only have rally caps on for so long. We've had rally caps on here. Yeah. It feels like for a week. Okay. We'll talk about this one here a little bit. I wanna get to first impressions. Oh. Just overall stepping back from him. And again, I'm doing kind of what you talked about last night by a little bit in that. I'm trying to just get a snapshot in my head and just kind of again, try to stay positive. But after two games, I see the Rockies hitting under two hundred and striking out since Monday forty times. It feels like the funk that we've seen them go through two or three times during the season. It's the worst possible time for it to happen and the saving grace is we saw after what happened at Shabazz Rabin, then they went to Phoenix. And they started to turn it around. They came back home. And then they won again that they are coming back home. That's my thought. Now, it comes down to really it clarifies everything when you're playing in an elimination game. There is no tomorrow. So you better let let it all hang out. That's my saving grace, my positively thinking that whatever mindset these guys had come in knowing that they had a best three out of five is now down to a best one. And then the next one and then the next one. Yeah. There's no question. I mean, this funk will try you mentally, and there's just no getting around that. And the Rockies are squarely. Up against the wall. And let's not kid ourselves. They have a massive hole to dig out of. And I don't think we need to sit here and go through all the numbers. I think would would you said it suffices. The only numbers. I would bring out is something I tweeted there at the end of the game, which is stats can say a lot of different things. You can spin them. You can use them for optimism. You can use them for pessimism. My my takeaway from this game is realism and in the past four games. The Rockies have played forty one innings and they've been outscored thirteen to six hashtag gotta hit. It really. Is that simple to me? And I'm not down this this club. Absolutely has the ability to turn things around starting on Sunday. As we've seen it time and time again. Realism they are playing the hottest team certainly in the National League. And maybe an all baseball right now. The Burs have won ten in a row they're doing it a little bit unorthodox in in a manner. That's a bit unorthodox in terms of their pitching. But it's supremely effective for whatever reasons. I mean she's seen couldn't throw a fastball. He wanted to over ninety one miles per hour. And he was affective. We said last night if they get five innings out of him. They'd be elated. The brewers had to be elated. They not only got five innings. They got five scoreless innings the Rockies have to find a way to hit. I don't know how to do that. I don't know how they need to figure out how to do that. And I know that's like, you know, captain obvious Mike, but somebody tell me what else the story is. Because you could visibly see the frustration from a number of players Nolan I- Annetta others. Yes. Charlie at times who never shows any emotion. You could just see you can sense it in somehow they've. Got a workout day tomorrow. And they've got a game on Sunday and is going to be cold. And they got to find a way to dig out to me. It's it's absolutely that simple. We can break down. Well, this guy should have played that nobody offensively is doing the thing. And if somebody wants to get into the game who's not been playing than they need to show that they deserve to be in the game. Like did last night. Yeah. And dole had been slumping a little bit. So but makes the change in power gets a base it, but that's not nearly enough. Yeah. So we can break down any minute decision. But that to me is absolutely secondary. To the fact that they are just not hitting right now is a disappointing. No question is it frustrating. Supremely is guaranteed to continue. I would hope not we know for those who have followed this club that they can break out of it and scored eight runs twelve runs whatever it is on Sunday. But they got to go. Do it. We're going to see it happen. It's funny. It is baseball as but blackwoods say Secondly there into their spunk and turn around and look at the other side of things lost in all of this. Tyler interesting goes out throw six innings. Run couple of watts. Five strikeouts. Only gave up four hits couldn't ask for much more out of a guy in Tyler Anderson who just about a week and a half ago. You weren't sure what was going to happen with him. Suddenly his shoulder was so sore, and we didn't know it was going to happen. He comes out of the bullpen has done a nice job. How about Scott Oberg their basis loaded strikes out the side? Okay. Okay. They're giving you every opportunity here. They're keeping you in the game. And the bats just never ever came around as we said, we're going to hear from butt-black. This is Rockies. React. We'll hear from bud. Black green over the phone lines up at three zero three seven one three eight five eight five. Oh, you guys are great band. Already started calling here. I just clicked on the phones. Here we already get one person on there. So we appreciate it a Michael to here in just a few. We're going to hear from bud black. I want to throw this out here. And as we said. Gherardo par is a guy that. Jumped out there. He's hitting three for six now in the series. He was too poor here today. Excuse me one. Here we go. I had it right in front of me. Sudden yesterday I knew we had one hit was one for two yesterday. So yeah, he was to perform today. So there's an example pars hidden a little bit. Scratching him out. He's that kind of guy that can kind of be that spark yet. It didn't happen for the rest of the lineup today. Like we side happen there in the in the ninth inning yesterday. The fact is Cory the best players have to be the best players in the most important games. And this isn't to point the finger. I mean Nolan are now does a tremendous hitter. He's struggling right now. Trevor story is a tremendous hitter. Who's had a tremendous year? He's struggling right now. Carlos Gonzales has shown that while he scuffled at times this year. He's still had on balance. A pretty good year. He's scuffling right now. Charlie Blackmon is still a great hitter. He scuffling right now. TJ LeMay, Hugh is a great hitter. He scuffled the last two games. And really as a group this entire lineup as on balance has scuffled over the last four games. Again, the stat is the stat six runs in the last forty one innings and this. Run a pitching that the Rockies have gotten in critical games on the road for three of four. No, no kidding. Key. Adding that in the has been spectacular for though. I mean, I I was talking with some people today more than one who was were nervous about Taylor Anderson. I said I think he's gonna pitch really well he had one shaky inning. And he worked out of that. And I'm not I'm not including the inning where he gave up the back to back doubles. That was boom that was kind of the inning because then Perez got Peres got the third and they were able to kind of pick him off and all the rest. You could not ask for more. Think of this in playoff, either playoff games or playoff type games. The last four times out the Rockies. Venom thirteen runs in forty one innings. That's fabulous. And and yet it's been good enough to win one of three. So. It has been a collective effort offensively. And to me any singular. Decision or example. That's given. All this is what you'll hear me say over the course of the next hour. Plus, yeah. But it's everybody if you want to blame Nolan, okay? What about Trevor story, and then write your list, and it's unfortunate. It's really too bad that it has come to this. And the first two games the series isn't over it. It looks grim. Let's not sugar coated. It's possible for the Rockies to catch fire. They've got to go show at though again, it goes back to that. They've gotta go gotta go win one game. Whatever that means. However, they do it. And let's see if they you know, what happens when they roll the ball onto the pitching mound on Sunday, of course field. There was an early issue with hitting during the regular season. And everybody said, oh, no it will come around. There was an early issue about playing at home and all that will come around well in the last seven games of the regular season all of that went away because of the way that the Rockies played with the fills and the national. Coming in here. And then getting wins them swinging. The bats pudding runs up like they have to throw one Stanford is out there. And we talk about the big free, and that's Charlie Blackmon Nolan Arnaldo and Trevor story they are three twenty Twenty-three in this series. That's a that's a one thirty batting average. And we always go back and look at the big pre. Because usually one of them is hitting. That's great. When all three you're hitting. But one of them's hitting hitting, and it's just not coming around Trevor story, we talked about it you and I last night on Rockies react about how Trevor story looks like he's chasing pitches. Again. Suddenly he's swinging at pitches that are down in the dirty. It was what he was doing early on in the season certainly doing a lot last year. And all of a sudden somehow something has clicked in the head where it's playoff baseball and his approach at the plate has changed dramatically. I'm surprised to see him swinging at things that he is. So yeah. It's amazing. We've talked about when the spotlight is on. You can't describe it to somebody and tell them what it's going to be like you have to let them get the experience in this. And well, they've experienced two games where something's going to have to change. And the good news is coming home to Coors field. And that is what you have to hope for them. And you know, what here's the deal this one hurts right now this one hurts in the immediate aftermath. The great thing is they've got a plane ride home to think about it to dwell on it, and then at some point tonight or certainly early tomorrow morning when those guys wake up you turn the page and say, let's go get one game. Let's go play. Well and play the best. We can and see if that's good enough. The Rockies are capable of playing a game on Sunday. That's good enough to win on Sunday. And then we'll talk about the same thing on Monday. And if that happens then on Wednesday up at Miller park, and can they exercise the demons, but all it comes to now is you gotta find a way to win. Whether it's one to nothing or fifteen to fourteen or somewhere between them. And this one hurts. You know? I mean fans expected more the team expected more..

And again, I know doom and gloom here. It's a three game series. It's against divisional opponent out there at AT and T park and the Rockies got what they needed and that was to get a win kind of stop the bleeding a little bit. It felt like unable to score any runs barely be able to get any hits at anything. But they figured out a way to get it done coming up here. A little bit later on we mentioned, Tracy wrangles be. We are also going to be taking a look at what other teams are doing. And what they need to do here over the next. Why don't we get a dozen games essentially left for the Rockies and just a handful of series that are left to take a look at the other teams Rockies are facing a look at the road that they have at a down the road again Rockies on captured seven thirty it'll be the first a three-game series, the Rockies and the dodgers.

"In you there the pulled down find rockies you can find us some primetime sports as well talk about nolan arnott's comments big news today is two we understand the starting rotation you'll be broke up just a little bit is john gray has been sent down to aaa albuquerque to work a few things out here and that news coming down just before we hit the air here on rockies all access let's head out to shabazz rabin we'll talk with the guys in the know and then his voice the rockies jerry schimmel who joins us from dodger stadium where guarantee the weather is a little bit cooler still a dodger stadium than it is here in denver you guys got out of town at the perfect time jair you're right timing finally good i'm not usually known for that corey but yeah that that was i can't believe it was one hundred four what a couple of days ago we missed that in san francisco when it was literally forty degrees cooler than it was in denver wow in that something well the big news your reaction john gray's going to do a little work down and aaa not not shocked by don't think anybody is talking to some of the other media members and jack earlier today i it i don't think we're all surprised by totally but i think it's a it's a great move on a couple of fronts number one john gray needs to work on some things there's no question about that and and number two and they could send a message that you know what you might be in this rotation now but you you if you don't perform its performance based business then things need to change and you need to improve and so that's where john gray's at right now and i just got haunt she'll go down work on some things come back and be that much better at least that's hope for this team how does this set up who do they call up it did have any insights as to who he may pull up from aaa because as it turns out today i melt happy gets his opportunity here with the iraqi so you bring a bad up today because you don't beat a starter until next week correct yeah in but was asked a question didn't have an answer he said that we've got some thoughts about that i think a good guess would be antonio sends it tell because he is scheduled to start aaa on tuesday and that's when john gray's start comes around so you can put those two together and and probably make pretty educated guests it would be sent to tell he's met pitching well the pitched this last start very well with seven innings was very impressive and actually had a couple of hits i think in that ballgame too so i think that's probably the prime candidate right now would be sensitive coming up from the minors yeah walk to guy struck out for he's is he are a and i know that he had to go through some rehabs things like that but through a game to me three and one two point one five yeah i guess it would be censor get his opportunity what does that do for and here i started getting into the heads of the players here my thought was they would keep john gray around and they would just keep letting him work through it but it just got to a point where you had to do something right i feel like you were just at that breaking point where a fragile mindset you didn't want to screw him up mentally by sending them back down to triple a but if you just got to a point where he was so up and down it was time to make a move the rockies for the last team to have their starters on opening day make it all the way through this point yeah i think that's that's it it it came to a point where there was just so much inconsistency with john graham from one start the other to start to go dominant and then last time out in san francisco he got roughed up again felt back in the same old habits so i i think you're right you would like to to to have him work through it but there's only so much you can do korean bullpen sessions and so much you can get done in a film session i think you have to go out there and do it and you try to do it from one start to.

"On thursday you guys are playing shabazz rabin this this weekend it is interesting within the division the differences you know i am sure teams dread a little bit come into play at coors field because it is a little different game but the rockies have to deal with playing in san diego night and day playing at chase field when the roofs open and when it's not and now they've got a humidor and things like that this is a unique division within baseball where the adjustments for everybody from pitchers on down to hitters is pretty unique i think yeah especially the ballpark's right on the ocean i mean the sandiego it's basically pick up a baseball almost throw it in the ocean same thing with obviously with with san francisco and la is not now not quite there but it's not quite so different either in those you know those generally or pitchers parks i mean they're they're large parks at night like you mentioned the the ball usually doesn't carry especially the further you get into the nights on that marine layer kind of cassettes on the on the field and you know it's tough to to get the ball get the ball those ballparks and then he played day game until bit hotter and you know that marine layers in there and jumps a little bit as it as it did in san francisco no not last game and so you know it's just the way that the senate is i mean it it's the way that the baseball is it's it's a game of adjustments and and there are small judgments in this division that that are made in terms of how games were played on depending on depending on where you're at the game times and all that so it all but usually quality pitching no quality pitch making solves for a lot of those things and doesn't really matter where you are do you have a confidence pitchers who believe you know that they're gonna make pitchers and actually execute those pitches than the rest kind of takes her itself more often than not well we hope that you're able to get onto a bit of a hot streak here to finish out toward the allstar break the opportunities there and certainly in the back half the season the good news is you guys play most of your games at home a majority more so than you played in the first part of the season you know you're gonna spend a lotta time at coors field and things will get fixed there that the team's going start winning there yeah we need to turn that around you know if we if we don't turn that around at home or you know or seasonal be sunk i don't think there's any two ways about that and and it really doesn't you know it starts today right it starts today against against the dodgers and it starts with with taking care of business one pitch in one i bet and one game at a time and then really starting to get some beliefs going here it's been a rough mont june is has been it's been some brutal baseball for us and and with the way that we played i mean we've truly earned a whole lot of these losses that we've had and you know the nice thing is is that we've been through this before and we've rebounded past seasons other teams as well have done same arizona just this season had a similar type of may and and they've found a way to you know to rebound and play better baseball and that's what we're going to have to do take it upon ourselves and play good team baseball complete games that we two wins so hopefully that goes on as soon as possible while the rules of baseball say you're do so there is that i wish i wish it were that easy you know a lot of things about this game is there isn't anybody that that's gonna feel sorry for us and there aren't any any other teams or any other people that are gonna come to our rescue we've got to figure this out ourselves and talented group but we've got to start playing playing to our capabilities here and and do it quickly well here's to a good finish out in la before you guys get back here and make the stretch toward the all star break jeff thanks for taking the time to talk to us no problem thanks for having me appreciate it rockies general manager jeff bridage talking to each and.
