House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot
"Democrats are moving forward with the plan to impeach President Trump for a second time. President has just nine days left in office, and Democrats say this week they plan to file an impeachment resolution. This follows Trump's incitement of his supporters last Wednesday, hundreds of whom descended on the U. S Capitol. The violent scene left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is here with us this morning with the latest take healthy. Good morning. How will this impeachment proceeding work? Well, it will start today when Democrats plan to bring up a resolution that would call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment. Democrats will try to pass that unanimously, but Republicans could and probably will block it with just one objection. After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is basically giving Pence 24 hours. I kind of ultimatum to decide if he's going to invoke the 25th amendment. If he doesn't she plans to bring the process you know to Ah, hold of bring together the process to hold a vote on impeachment. Which could happen as early as Wednesday. Now on the question of impeachment, it's currently just one article referring to incitement to insurrection. It's based on Trump's address to the crowd before the riots began, and his attempts to overturn the election in 2020 more than 200. Democrats have signed on, and I'm told that they expect some Republicans will support it, too. You know, Democrats are pretty unified and saying what happened? The capital cannot be swept under the rug. Is that Trump can't be allowed to simply leave office without any consequences, And they want to make sure that the Senate has the opportunity to vote to convict so that it can bar trump from holding future federal office. Okay, Kelsey. This actually brings me to the question of Republicans. We heard a few of them say over the last few days, they want Trump out of office. How widespread? Is that feeling within the GOP, you know, some of that is kind of hard to gauge because most of them have been quiet. We know that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first to say that Trump should resign, but she's been joined by retiring Senator Pat Toomey. He was asked about this yesterday on CNN. I think at this point with just a few days left, it's the best half forward. Now there are a few others that agree. But some others, like Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, who's part of Republican leadership, says he basically wants Trump to be quiet for 10 days and just leave. You know, House Republican leaders have also mostly been silent, except for Liz Cheney, who has often broken with the rest of House Republican leadership when it comes to Trump Okay. This process the house wants to do is is really quick. But there's still the Senate, right? And you know, that is really the wild card here because Republicans will control the Senate until the Georgia elections are certified. And then the Senate has to meet and do some required organizing work. So that means that Mitch McConnell would control the timing and the Senate is out of session. So what would need to happen is they would have to bring them back into session. They would start a trial basically around Inauguration Day. Once an impeachment trial is triggered in the Senate, it stops everything else from happening. It forces senators to come to the Senate floor stick down six days a week until the trial concludes, and that could take weeks. House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn floated a proposal that he says could solve it. Here He is yesterday on CNN President Look Bad 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe we'll send you the articles. Sometimes after that, Ah, 100 Days is a really long time And that could be well after Trump leaves office And you know, Democrats want to proceed for all the reasons I've mentioned before, but this creates a really complicating political moment for Biden as he tries to, you know, move forward and move the country ahead. And this is all happening. I 30 seconds with you as we prepare for Joe Biden's inauguration. What are the concerns about safety? Yeah, they're still concerns the capitals a little bit like a fortress right now, with fences and National Guard troops and there. There's a process of a review right now. But there are serious concerns about whether or not the capital but will be fully safe for the bite. Administration were told that there are really efforts right now trying to Trying to beef up security and take every precaution. Possible.

"Move into center field like it's not going to happen though. It's not happening. stop it now. I will say this about fernando tatis junior this helps keep fernando tatis junior in the padres padres uniform for the long term. And you say how because fernando tatis junior wants to be on a winning team and when you go out and make moves like the move that aj preller has made the last twenty four hours for blake snell for cam potentially for yu darvish as well. That's what is gonna watch him. It's not gonna come down to solely dollars and cents. He's going to be well set regardless he's going to want the dollars and cents and he's gonna wanna win and the padres have done nothing but win and they've made nothing but moves to help win in the future. So i would think this only bodes well for a long term extension fernando tatis juniors well down the road and you know who else it helps mainly machado you. We forget manny machado. Yes signed a ten year contract. He has an opt out after five years. You know so you got to keep him happy as well so you get him for that. Full ten year contract. Because if he's not happy he could easily opt out of after five years and looked to play somewhere else to try to win a world series. You need to keep him happy to. It's not just about fernando tatis junior it's about totti's and machado in my opinion are the padres closer to the dodgers today than they were yesterday. That is unequivocally yes the answer to that question. But that's the thing is aj preller. Does all these moves he he. He creates a atmosphere where half the team could be turned over in a matter of hours. It's a it's it's getting that team to click and to match up with the dodgers when he turns over half the team now. It's good this time because it's in the off season last last year. They did do well. you know. But it's still. He turned over a third of the team with thirty games left..

"Get those opportunities by being able to throw ninety pitches or one hundred pitches or one hundred ten pitches. He wasn't even given that opportunity in game. Six busy through. Just seventy seventy three pitches in that attic. Do you want some breaking news. Yeah all right According to dennis lynn padres have reached agreement with hodgson kim. So there you go. This is is. The craziest is not the craziest day. It's one of i link it to. The trade deadline has past year when he just made a million trades and they were all. I think for pretty good players out. Some of them didn't pan out but still it's to me. It's one of those days again were. Aj preller. he doesn't just make one when he makes one big move. You can expect multiple moves to follow him. What did he make eight trades at the deadline. Eight trades at the deadline You know. I think that the big trades in twenty fifteen was whenever it was like all those winners meeting deals and when he has you know enough bullets in his in his gun so to say he's going to unload the clip and he's been waiting to do this for years for years now. He has been accumulating prospects gaining prospects and this is his time essentially to shine and go out and get whatever he wont remember. They said well he can. He can acquire a system right like he can build a farm system but can he turn it into a winning product at the major league level. And i think he proved that in twenty twenty. Yes was a sure year but now he's proved over and over again from the trade deadline which removes to help that twenty two to the off season which are moves to help your window of time. Twenty twenty one twenty twenty two twenty twenty three the players. The padres have under contract now. Jim through twenty twenty three. It is an unbelievable collection. Fernando tatis junior machado snell lumet grisham krona. Worth nola austin nola mckenzie gore. Chris paddack there is a collection of guys not to mention clever through two thousand twenty two hosmer through twenty twenty. Two we'll myers right now is signed through two thousand twenty three and then you add a player like costs on kim who last year had no in korea as a twenty four year. Old of nine twenty one the year before twenty three year old and no eighty. I mean that's real power. Hit thirty home runs. Had one hundred nine. Rbi's in one hundred thirty eight games. He's been one hundred plus. Rbi guy three times already in the k b o and like you said earlier like i said earlier. It's not the same league but if you can have any type of production that's comparible you're going to be a productive major league player and that's what the padres their scouting department and. Aj preller are banking up and the biggest thing with him last year that i look at six hundred and twenty two plate appearances in a hundred and thirty eight games. He struck out sixty eight times. He had seventy five walks. He hasn't had more than eighty one strikeouts in a full season since his age. Nineteen year fits the mold of what the padres wanna do exactly. He's he's an opiate. S guide doesn't strike out a lot He can steal some basis at twenty three stolen bases last year at thirty three stolen bases in.

"Lineup like is blake's now you tweeted this out. Last night is blake snell to some extent dodgers killer as a lefty with that lefty dominant lineup right. I mean that's first of all righty struggles against lefties. Bellinger muncie seager. These guys are left handed. Bats if you can bring left handed starting pitching. And i'm not just talking about like random. Generic left handed starting pitching. I'm talking about cy. Young caliber left handed. Starting pitching like blake snell. What does that do from a head to head perspective. I still don't think we it's easy to say. The dodgers were head shoulders above the padres last year. Because of what happened in the postseason but we didn't see the patriots. Jim with either cleven jer. Orla met so. It's an unfair argument to say well. The dodgers the dodgers are world champs to take nothing away from that. I understand that. But that doesn't mean anything heading into twenty twenty one if you add blake snell and you darvish to rotation in terms of finding a way to overcome with the dodgers did a year ago you know. They still are behind the dodgers until they overtake them You still have questions in your bullpen. What what's gonna happen with trevor. Rosenthal kirby yates You know how is that. Going to pan out. So there's still a lot of question marks on this team. But we heard what peter seidler said with darren last week like their main priority right now and we we see it is starting pitching. They need to get starters. We saw what happened in the postseason last year. That can't happen again. like that. just can't happen where they make a postseason run. And then you lose a couple starters and you're like what do we do with the bullpen games. Every game we give yourself no shot none and so seen what. Aj preller is doing now. And this is what i love about. Preller is. he's just like we need something. I'm gonna go get it. And i've said this for years. Whatever aj preller wants to get he can go get. He has enough resources to go get anybody he wants. Essentially pretty much. Anybody traded for cleven jer and for snell without giving up his top. Two prospects right mackenzie gore. Cj abram and he's possibly going to get you darvish probably not for any top prospects either because yu darvish taken on money on money so for aj pro or he can do whatever he wants he can get whoever he wants and he's a type of guy who seemingly when he wants somebody really bad he's going to go get them and that's what i love about preller. Now the issue with blake snow in the one thing that we've talked about You know is is can this guy be more than just a five any pitcher. you know. it's interesting when you phrase it that way and he wanted to be more than five inning pitcher in game six the world series and when he was taken off the mound by kevin cash in that spot and they lost the world series. You basically knew he wasn't coming back right like yeah..

"In seventy six innings. Career numbers are really good. Aj preller has ties to the texas rangers ties to darvish from perspective. It makes sense. You say we'll does make sense bringing on salary. Will maybe if you're dumping salary at the same time with someone. Like a wil myers and ac reported today that The padres have engaged in talks that would result in unloading salaries. So i think if they get this you darvish deal done in. My is already done like i. I'm already putting yu darvish on this team. They're gonna unload. You're really putting yu darvish on this team right now. I don't know if we can go there. But i'll do it. I'll do it from the hypothetical where there's smoke there's fire and there's enough smoke here to to make a big fire. We talk about the twenty twenty one rotation again then sure if they lend you darvish. It looks like this. And i don't know about the order but lament coming off the injury maybe a slot them down. Maybe you go blake's now you darvish to nelson lament and then you go zach davies. Chris paddack i'm on board with that rotation and that rotation gives you a chance to have success in the postseason as well also gives you time to work out whatever kinks there were with mackenzie gore down in the minors thinking about twenty twenty two for second. Yeah it's insane. The twenty twenty two rotation if they pull this off if clever healthy and if cleansers healthy snell darvish cleven jer. Lament gore right. I it's just yeah exact- davies. They might unload his contract. Do i think ten million dollars this upcoming year. Maybe a little bit more. Is there an option on that. Don't have it in front of me. But that could be a guy that could be a guy that they unload to bring over darvish. you know replacing darvish for with with me placing davies with darvish. And then you still have ager more. Hone possible like you have mackenzie gore ryan. Weather's i don't think is ready yet. But still you have joy lucchessi still and he's unrestricted so davies after twenty twenty one home eight and a half is unrestricted. Okay so there's no ties to davis beyond two hundred twenty one. But if that if that trade.

I texted you and you text me back like five minutes later. Saying i was actually cooking when i got the news. You know when you we all do the trait scenarios like right like oh if they traded this guy for this guy and a lot of times. They're all pipedreams fantasy. This to me felt like something we talked about the second. This offseason happened. Yeah and the rumors started happening where blake snell was going to become available and the first thing in my mind. I'm your mind and a lot of padres minds whereas oh blackstone the padres. It's going to happen. That's got to happen and it did happen. In what i what i love about is look the padres have got all these prospects and while louise patino is a nice prospect and top prospect in baseball guys not proven yet. What he did last year to me he kind of underperformed maybe he was brought up too soon in my eyes because with no minor leagues. You needed to get this guy. Some work in probably brought up wheel too soon. The other guys gave away co wilcox. He was a third round draft pick. He was signed for first round draft. Pick money to three million bucks. Three million bucks up. He's obviously unproven francisco. Mahia huge disappointment since coming over here. I didn't think you had any value whatsoever. And then the other catcher forget his name hunt they also try to blake hunt. Blake hunt. I never heard of his name before in my life so to me getting a guy like blake snell who is a cy young award winner. Saw what he did in the world series on the biggest stage last year against the dodgers. There are some concerns with him. Get into those amid here but just getting a a proven starter. Right that can go out there and give you five innings but a proven star that this team literally did not have at the end of last year is a huge upgrade. The you can only look at it..

Discussions Drag On For Another Coronavirus Relief Bill
"So when are millions of struggling americans going to get another round of financial aid that answer not likely before the holidays. Lawmakers on capitol hill are struggling to find an agreement and there is so much at stake here because a lot of the additional financial relief. Americans are receiving will expire this month. We've npr congressional correspondent. Kelsey snell kelsey. I feel like a lot of people who might face fiction or who have been out of work for all. This time are justified in wondering what's happening on capitol hill Can you tell us yes. Oh the state of play. This week was that they started out with house speaker. Nancy pelosi and senate minority leader. Chuck schumer working with bipartisan group. An kind of negotiating starting point nine hundred billion dollars and that really seemed to be steam That would have stopped the expiration of several programs that are supposed to end at the end of this month but then sent majority leader mitch. Mcconnell said that he wanted to remove some major sticking points to pave the way for a deal but things he wanted to take away. One of them was money. For state and local governments said it was an exchange for getting rid of liability protections that republicans favor but democrats said it was just not negotiable for them to get rid of that state and local money because they said layoffs were at stake. That governments needed that money. In order to keep people on the job and then the white house made even more confusing and complicated with their own offer that included six hundred dollars in relief checks but not unemployment insurance that was in the version that congress had been talking about you know. It has been a chaotic week. And this is something that often happens in in congress when they're trying to get to a deal. There is a little bit of chaos but is particularly chaotic. And at a time when a lot is at stake especially chaotic indicate in an already chaotic place what lawmakers it sounds like a centrally giving themselves like one more week to cut some sort of deal. What is it like a self deadline. Doing some of that is just that they are trying to tie this to spending bills that are working their way through congress right now they have to pass a spending bills to avoid a government shutdown. And the do not want to shut down the government before the holidays you know and also congress just works well. Dad lines and the holidays are clear deadline and so are the widespread fears about what will happen to the economy into people fired for. We'll say house speaker policy did not rule out working between christmas and new years. If they can't get a deal done on the timeline that they've set up for themselves. Also say that there's now a push from progressives like alexandria ocasio cortez and bernie sanders who say that. They're frustrated with the aid packages under discussion and they want to include stimulus payments to help people who might be protected by fiction fans that are set to expire people who were behind on rent and bills who need extra cash right now just what happens to to them into so many other people with lawmakers can't find agreement. Yeah i mentioned that. The programs will expire and that includes unemployment insurance for gig workers and people who already exhausted traditional unemployment benefits The federal eviction ban would expire so would a pause on federal student loan payments and business. Deductions that were intended to keep these businesses hiring and to keep their employees on despite the pandemic plus a number of other elements that people may be starting to feel at home any expectation. That different president will will change the climate on the hill. That is the expectation for democrats. But you know no matter what happens. Things are being very tight in the senate and you know. I'm not sure that it'll be actually a lot. Easier to start getting bipartisan agreement. They've been in a staring contest in july. And each side. Fundamentally believe the other is wrong. About what the country needs and a lot of that would have to change for deals to be done in a simpler clearer fashion

"Remained at an impasse over a short term coronavirus relief package as NPR's Kelsey Snell reports they hope to reach deal before several major programs expire at the end of the month.

But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says without the money and local governments could be forced to lay off workers, adding toe already troubling jobs numbers.

"They won with a powerful lineup. But did they risk turning the world Siri's into a corona virus super spreader into a super spreader event? It Let's let's talk about the good things for a Shall we then Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series first time since 1988 and had been a long time coming in a lot of failed a lot of false starts at the beginning of this decade in terms of winning So many division titles and just sputtering in the playoffs, losing to the infamous Houston Astros in the 2017 world, serious getting beaten by the Red Sox in 2018, and this time they were great. They were fantastic. Even Clayton Kershaw that everyone talked about couldn't get the monkey off of his back. He comes out and wins. Two games in the series, and it was great for them. I think that they they did it the way that great teams are supposed to. They scored more than half of their runs with two outs. Everyone's looking for all that clutch. All those clutch performances and the Dodgers really did come through. They were They were fantastic. Even with the crazy game for 87 collapse that we thought was going to turn the Siri's around in a different direction tied it, too. But at the very At the next turn, The Dodgers come back and they never look back. They are champions, and they very much deserved it. Even though it was an eight game season. It was very much Before playoffs and everything else. Yeah, it's it's a legit championship. But but but but but Justin Turner removed from the game because it was positive for Corona virus. He returned for a celebration often mask lists hugging people. He sat next to Dave Roberts, the manager who is a cancer survivor, and therefore more at risk. How How do you finish that sentence? How do we characterize this? Well, he characterizes as a massive massive Hey, irresponsibility on the part of Justin Turner on the part of the Dodgers and certainly on the part of Major League baseball, even though Major League Baseball has tried to get out in front of this by laying the blame at the feet of Justin Turner, and it is his responsibility. However, I have a hard time believing that that he was allowed to play with an inconclusive test, so they took him off of the field after the test was Was found to be positive. But if you have an inconclusive test, how do you let him play in the first place? And so everyone's going to take responsibility for this, But this is what we're seeing across the board were seeing this at the University of Florida with all of their positive test. We're seeing it with the big 10 as well on the Big 10 had made the decision earlier not to play, and then they got bullied by the president into playing, and now they're canceling games. This is the thing Scott we talked about this months ago. Everyone saw this coming, but this country has just made a decision not to care about it. And, of course, the discussion of the weak. Ah, Kevin Cash, the Tampa manager, pulling Blake smell Blake Snell, Tampa Cy Young Award winning pitcher after he struck out nine after just 5.5 innings because of analytics. Tampa lost with almost the next pitch as this decision become emblematic of these over analysed times. Well, absolutely. But I had a revelation during this world serious guy and I think I've always known it, but it it wasn't crystallized until watching this. I don't watch baseball or I don't watch sports for wins and losses. I watch sports for competition. And this this thing they did not let Blake smell compete. And this happened at a time. When look at who we lost during this baseball season where you've lost the great picture, Whitey Ford, you lost the great competitor, Bob Gibson. And these players, they're legends come from competition, and if you're not going to let a player compete, what is the purpose of being a Cy Young Award winner? You're not even going to be allowed to have these classic championship moments. If they pull you out of the game. This is why we watch in baseball. At least the Tampa Bay Rays took that away from us. Howard Bryant of ESPN Well said, Thanks so much. Thank you.

Can you defend what cash did? No And I don't WanNa hear anybody else tried defended either because some things are just indefensible and this is one of them Tony I I'm offended by what I saw last night just somebody who grew up on baseball whose I love and sport was baseball played baseball pitch and just offensive. So numbers are so important to you Kevin cash that you can't use your eyes which is supposed to be professionally trained and steeled, and you've been benched coach and manager then all these days and you don't know when you need to leave the guy alone you. WanNa, take the game away from the players take the game away from a starting pitcher whose lights out who the other team is. Now, not afraid of going Oh my God is shaking their heads and you don't have the baseball since in you to leave him alone and ride your good fortune to have this guy going this. Well, totally I was in contact via text with a couple of former recent former notable major league baseball players, and they were as startled about this development as I was and I just couldn't. No. There's no defending it. Yeah I'M GONNA. Give it a shot at defending human I'm going to preface it by saying if we don't learn from history, we're always going to be doomed to repeat it Kevin. Cash. Has Seen Blake Snell. He has managed Blake Snell for years. Now he's seen them all year. He hasn't gone through the sixth all year I'm going to read from my notes Ziara in these playoffs in the first four innings where he's been great as one point three, five from then on it's twelve point five, six last week Snell no hit the dodgers for four and two thirds and Then, in rapid order walk homer walk single and cash has seen all of this the last guy up before he gave him, the Hook was the ninth patron, the order, and he hit a rope to center field, and now at this point you've got bets and you've got SEGER coming up for a third time. The mistake isn't Yanking Snell to me the mistake is putting in Anderson Innocence the wrong guy in the regular season he's lights out but in the playoffs is over five and Mike and his last six appearances, he's allowed to run I I I understand that Kevin? Is. An. Easy target and a totally legitimate target. I just think in this case, he had seen Snell all year and the hulk wasn't as bad as what he did home. You're not playing lifetime achievement. You're playing the damn game tonight right? You is your sense of everything. This is your livelihood I don't care what he did last week. This guy has given up one hard hit ball maybe a second heart. It Ball. Alright. So yes, you got what you're saying about bringing a guy in who's been lit up lately I don't WanNa go that far I don't care who he had going warmed up. You have got a guy on the mound that has the other people in the other Doug. If you're a manager the time we know you're watching them to and they are shaking their heads when they walk back to. The dugout he has stymied them. If you're not smart if all you're doing is playing probability Tony, then go work at the win in Vegas I don't WanNa see you near a baseball diamond. So let me go back into this for a second because it's something we'll have to live with if he never wins forever in the way that great little does the way the Darryl bevill does. Making these what appear to be bonehead calls but I would tell you Dave Roberts said the same thing with Clayton Kershaw he let him pitched to two batters in the sixth inning whenever it was and he knew that Ziara after a certain point was bad and he took them out to protect him and to make sure the dodgers won that game I think managers do this I don't. You know I'm not crazy about analytics I don't WanNa take an anti intellectual viewpoint here that I think that certain people it's absurd managers rely too much on numbers and not enough on you but I think the mistake was who he put in not what we took out. One of the guys I was texting with last night we might be said half the front office is in baseball would have done this and it's not just a managers front office last night was bad night for Baseball Tony. You could say baseball's we at five. We know better than somebody even most cases who's twenty five years old. It's a sad night for baseball that a guy pitching a masterpiece. What are you take? You defendant Kevin Casting Colfax or Gibson? That's the kind of performance. This guy was spinning last night and he took them out and it's a sad night. It's a sad night for baseball I don't care how anybody who wants to defend it or painted even Kevin cast I don't care what he has to say.

House Democrats pass partisan COVID bill; relief talks drag
"Hours before the news broke that President Trump had tested positive for the Corona virus. The House of Representatives approved a new stimulus bill mostly along party lines. The $2.2 trillion bill is the latest bid by House Democrats who want an aid package passed before the election. Congress is still negotiating with the White House. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says now those talks may have shifted. This kind of changes the dynamic because Here. They see the reality of what we have been saying all along. The inability of Congress in the Trump Administration to reach bipartisan deal comes as companies are announcing mass layoffs and markets are responding to the news of Trump's diagnosis. We've got NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snow with us. Hi, Kelsey. Hi, there. What else did Speaker Pelosi say this morning while she was speaking on MSNBC, and she says she is praying for the president his family and that the line of succession is intact. We shouldn't remember that she is second in line behind vice president Pence in that line of succession. If something were to happen to the president But, you know, she also said that while it is tragic that the president was diagnosed with Krone virus spreading this disease is preventable. Going into crowds unmasked and all the rest was sort of. Ah, brazen invitation for something like this to happen, said that it did. But nonetheless hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about. Just for some context, I think it's pretty notable that Congress has no testing regime of any kind. Pelosi herself has been tested and is awaiting her result. And several top White House aides have been in contact with senior Senate Republicans in recent days who also don't have a testing regime. They were shepherding trumps nominee for the Supreme Court, Amy Cockney Barrett through her meetings on Capitol Hill. So there's a question about how why the impact could be in Washington right so and in Washington next week. Judge Amy Kuney. Barrett is expected to have her confirmation hearing. I mean, do we have any idea how the president's positive Corona virus test and the contact tracing that will emerge from that how that's going to affect the hearing? Well, we should say that we know that Barrett has been tested and she tested negative She's tested daily. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had an interview this morning where, he said this nomination process is moving ahead, and Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham says everything is on track for the hearings to begin on October 12th. No, it's it's a situation where they're talking about having her nomination come out of committee by October 22nd and she still has a lot of meetings to do, and there is a question of how these hearings would actually happen. Majority leader McConnell suggested that perhaps this would be a more virtual hearing than we saw in previous confirmation process is so ah, lot is still up in the air, but they do expect to have a vote on the Senate floor, though McConnell still will not commit to exactly when that will happen. So let's get back to the Corona virus Financial relief bill. I mean the speaker, Pelosi said the dynamics of the negotiations might change. I mean, how does the president's diagnosis really make it more likely that there's bipartisan agreement here? Well, we don't really know exactly because the president hasn't been particularly involved in these conversations. In fact, he's been not involved at all. He has left it to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to continue talks with Speaker Pelosi and included an in person meeting this week. Now they this is a situation where if President Trump decided to endorse a Billy would have considerable sway with Republicans. On DH. Obviously, there's going to be political blowback from for both parties. If they can get something done, right? Absolutely, You know, this is a situation where they There is a strong feeling that Congress needs to be able to get something passed before the election because this has become a nationwide problem and both in the economy and as a public health crisis. Impairs. Kelsey Snell. Thank you. Thank you.
Blue Jays face Rays as underdogs in wild card playoff series
"Playoffs start tomorrow maybe even today even yesterday as you're listening to this, we're going to go. I mean ordinarily take quite a bit of time and Karen previewing each series. But we don't have that kind of time because there are eight playoff series and they are best of three which is going to lend itself to all kinds of chaos and so we're GonNa go through each of these series intern. We're going to turn hit the high notes and then at the very end deliver, our world series picks So let's start with the top series in the American league the Tampa Bay rays versus the Toronto Slash Buffalo Bluejays. The first bullet point I have in my notes here is with because the Toronto Blue Jays with with Vladimir Guerrero junior and hundred. View. A Hundred Kirk. This is a wide team and I love and as much as as high as I am on the radio. I'm very excited. See the Blue Jays in the playoffs this help them or hurt them here I think dot you've seen all hundred kirk hit I. Think how can you? How can you say anything other than than the with helps them yeah. I like the idea that maybe Vlad as just gonNA break out suddenly in the playoffs because he's looked really good the last couple of weeks or so and it would. Be Wonderful if he just figured out how to hit the ball in the air and really had a great October and it'd be really fun if Nate Pearson came back from injury and turned into a bullpen weapon this month but I just personally don't see a great case for the Jays over the race I think they're both good teams. I. Think The an exciting team with a bright future but the race are really good and I think beyond review who is not even starting game one for the Jays I just don't have A. Lot of faith in most of that trump rotation or bullpen frankly and other than the game restarts it seems to me that Tampa Bay has the pitching edge both in the bullpen and the rotation and offensively maybe it's a wash, but it just seems to me that the the pitching edge is firmly in Tampa Bay side. So I think the Toronto Bullpen and this is going to be the kind of thing that gets said right before they give up nine runs in the seventh inning eight-game one I think it's better than baby. You think maybe they get given credit for I could see a path with this pitching because what they what they're going to try to do apparently is is bullpen game it with a match shoemaker taking up a little bit of load on the front of the maybe we get Pearson in the end of game one we haven't seen blake Snell pitched that deep in games in the postseason in the past, and then game too. I think you could make an argument that we use the best pitcher in the series. So if that happens. If. The blue, Jays do need to shoot the moon but I could see how they get it how they get it done with that said, this raise team just has so much depth in the lineup. There are good defensively they have so many pitchers not just the scary. Snell Morton tile glass now types just the I mean we saw this in the unfortunately in the for for me in the last weekend of the of the regular season where they shut down the phillies like even down to bespectacled Wade Miley who was lights out in the last game of the season yeah. The razor they've just got too much pitching I. Think as much as funny. It would be to see the the Blue Jays fight I think the the rates are going to take this one pretty handling.

"Trying to put five in on twitter. You can tweet me at Jason. It's okay it's a pandemic. I'm just worried about all of us. That are tweeting in here. That are also helping. Educate our children at this point at home so going to be very confusing when we try and figure out. Mount Rushmore is moving forward but four names. That's all you get triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven six. We'll take more your take but first let's start with some straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless as the debate started with Stephen. Am Max reacting remember. Espn DOT COM did ranking of the top horrid NBA players from that. They came out with their top four. That essentially became the Mount Rushmore. So the question is who should be on the route? Mount Rushmore players. Who are not already on it. That's what Stephen Max started with today on I take. I think it would be magic. Johnson the reason why is because I'm not looking at necessarily his stats. Although he led the League in assists about four five times he led the League steals twice. If I remember correctly he's a five time champion. We get all of that on the average about nineteen and a half a game shot fifty two percent from the field for his career day. But here's the thing. Tell me a better show in the history of basketball showtime we can make that argument. But they're in the discussion top two as a show all all-time know Jamaal Wilkes was special. Norm Nixon was special people. Forget about that norm. Nixon was special. Jamaal Wilkes special. We know about Michael Cooper we know about Michael Thomson of course Kareem abdul-jabbar Kurt Rambis Byron. Scott that came later with James Worthy. Of course we get all of that. But who was the orchestrator we talk about? Show Tom just think about this. Kp for second here wanted raiders shows coming up in the eighties. Was watching anybody for the Lakers. Rebound the basketball. The first thing is the minute you magic hands all of a sudden you sort do sprint. Because it was somebody on one wing it was probably worthy. It was somebody on the other wing was probably Barbara's guy. It was Michael Cooper trail in that kind of stuff. So what I'm talking about. Is this certain things when we talk about team basketball. And you look at a guy that is literally the floor general. He's the personification of a floor general. He's an architect. He's an orchestrator. And this dude is pushing a ball up to four and universally recognized as as arguably the greatest passer of the basketball we have ever seen even though being six nine certainly helped him because he was usually looking over. Defenders in the end is ability to push the ball up the floor to run an offense to make so many other people better. I can't say enough. Michael Jordan told me magic. Johnson is the greatest point guard. He's ever seen in the history of Basketball Kareem. Abdul-jabbar has six rings. I think four or five I think five of them came with magic five grieve and one before he got matching. This is so special man. That's up their first of all. Let me say this thing. The Mount Rushmore Right. They got it. They got it right. Those are the four guys who belong there. Michael Jordan Kareem Lebron and Bill Russell. That's Mount Rushmore. I think actually wilt Chamberlain probably has the best argument. But because you brought up magic. I'M GONNA make the case for Larry Bird. The fact is Larry. Bird was better than Magic Johnson and observers at the time knew it in fact magic as great as he was. He's the greatest point guard of all time. Larry Bird's not the great small forward power forward of all time right. That would be Lebron James so birds been surpassed in a way. That magic has not magic outlasted. Larry Bird even when he tacked contract is illness. Larry Bird's back already given out but guys. I value the peak performance. The prime more than longevity. That's why I have Jordan ahead of Lebron. I think that's what we're really talking. How good did you get if you sustained it for a reasonable period of time magic? One more chips magic beat them in college but magic was also on better teams per wasn't on great teams but we all acknowledge magic was on better teams when Larry Bird showed up in the NBA. Celtics had the Celtics had. Twenty-nine wins the year. Before the added Larry Bird they had sixty one wins the next year. Let me tell you Larry. Bird's MVP finishes until he got hurt force his rookie year. Second Second Second I I I third second that he got hurt. Magic's not like that man and at the time we all knew it burglar three consecutive. Mvp A winner and those three years. He won the championship. Two out of three times magic reach those heights of winning the MVP or coming and said it'd be after bird slowed down so while magic's.

Okay he went on also to point out that by the time he takes a pay cut and gets taxed is even going to be worth getting on the field to play. This is going to be an ugly debate. Moving forward as Major League Baseball and Major League baseball players will have to decide what everyone's comfortable with in world war? I want athletes to be comfortable getting out on the field and they deserve the same rights as everybody else to express their comfort with that. It's still becomes a very ugly debate when you have rich people arguing with rich people about.

The finale of last dance on Sunday night talking about the impact the quake Michael Jordan had and continues to have. That's Monday right here on. Espn BACK ON. Get up. And when I woke up this morning the name Blake Snell was trending and I wondered why so I clicked on this video in which he talks about how he will not play this season for a reduced salary. Here's what was posted to because y'all gonna be like proudly played for the love of the again man. What's wrong with you bro? Money should not be a thing bro. I'm risking my life. What do you mean should I be a thing in a hundred essentially thing? If I'M GONNA play we had the money I signed to begin paid. I gotta get my money. I'm not playing. I get mine okay and does just the way it is for me to that was Blake snell yesterday. This is Jeff. Passan our baseball insider. How should we react to that? Jeff Greenie Blake. Snell is making public. What a lot of players are saying behind the scenes now. Certainly part of this is players efforts to try and Cajole the owners and make them know that money is important to us and we are willing to potentially miss this season because of it but listen. We're still in the posturing phase. I've been saying this from the start. This week's going to be ugly. You're going to hear things about money. You'RE GONNA get angry because it's millionaires and billionaires fighting. That's just the reality of the situation this early on in the process the big question is are they willing most literally to put their money where their mouth is because if Blake Snell is threatening to sit out if he doesn't get his money and they don't get their money? Is he actually going to sit out the season or the players actually going to miss the season? I still have a really hard time believing that in the end of the twelve hundred guys in the major league baseball players sociation throw away season over a cut of money. I get it but there have to be some players who won't want to play right who won't fit. Maybe some who were completely financially secure and all the rest of that a too early to know how that will be handled if out of those twelve hundred players one hundred of them say know what. I'm not coming back and doing it. I think one hundred honestly is on the high side. It's interesting though. Blake SNELL's pitcher. Remember and pictures have not been ramped up or warmed up like they normally are pitchers are far more prone to injury risk than than position players are and pictures of the ones who potentially could be suffering the most in terms of long-term damaging consequences. So it's interesting to hear this pitcher. Trevor Bauer said something similar yesterday. He is a pitcher as well. Something else to keep an eye on. Greenie low salary is if they're getting half of what they're supposed to be say like three hundred thousand which is half of the minimum you take taxes out your at one hundred eighty thousand. It's a great salary for any American to be making one hundred eighty thousand dollars right now and yet when you compare it to the risks going forward it might make it difficult for some of those younger guys to want to come back. I will say Jeff Passan well done. Thank you my man. Good to see you and we'll continue again. I woke up this morning and the name Blake. Snell was trending and I wanted to see why. And that's what it is. Look there's never been a time. I can remember where I think. There was less of an appetite on the part of fans to hear people talking about money.

"A player. I'm not denying what Jalen is pointing to in terms of points in terms of production in terms of championships on the part of a Kareem abdul-jabbar Bill Russell Eleven Championships in thirteen years. We get all of that but I'm not just looking championships. Obviously I'm looking at all around ability. I think when you look at Magic Johnson. This phenomenal in great as he was and the orchestrator of show. Tom The greatest show. As far as I'm concerned that we have ever seen in history a basketball. The reality is that as an individual talent. Magic Johnson didn't compare to Lebron James in terms of individual talent. But JALEN. I WanNa say this to you because I want to give you an opportunity to diss crash and crush my world. I'm about to say something on get up. That is blasphemous that as sacrilegious but I just want to pose this question since we are going by championships. Jalen rose why is Wilt Chamberlain on this list? He played in the same. He's a career thirty point per game scorer or fifty four percent shooting. He's the dominant force. Most people I've ever seen in their lifetime. He was clearly conceived perceived as the most dominant force before shack and even ahead of shack in some people's eyes. Obviously but I ask a sincere question when Bill. Russell was winning all of those championships. Wasn't it supposed to be Wilt Chamberlain? That was standing in his way and if Wilt Chamberlain with Jerry West and others as teammates still forfeited all of those championships to Bill Russell. Why should wilt Chamberlain be in our top ten? It's just a question. I know it's blasphemous but I'm asking is definitely blasphemous and I don't go only by championships. If that's the case then Bill Russell number one I go by a couple of things number. One more spectacular. That's just an attests to me. That's Michael Jordan. The second thing is more dominant on defense. Nobody in the history of the game is more dominant than Bill Russell and then when you talk about achievement no players have achieved more than Kareem Russell. And then my next Guy Magic and then I'm going to get to your question. Now will say is the most dominant force that the game has seen. I know a lot of young fans. Feel that that Shaquille O'Neal but we'll change the average in two thousand five rebounds in a season and you know what else he did. In the season Stephen led the league in assists. He was going up against one of the greatest dynasties in the history of short with Jerry. West on his squad is true. I want to emphasize before we get off. The air. Greenie Jalen is that Jalen is absolutely right. I agree with you but the reason why pose. That question is because on too many occasions when we're the modern day play against them is what they did or did not Iraq or actually what they did it do in big moments particularly compared to great talent so as in other words. There's a hall of fame but there are certain rules certain floors that people belong on compared to others. We've done stuff like that but we've never done it with Wilt Chamberlain who religiously lost a Bill Russell. All I'm saying. Is that those kind of things Sunny Hill or somewhere in Philadelphia. WanNa throw water on me for crying. I love being so blast. What I'm saying I'm not I totally agree with you. I'm there I just felt the question needed to be asked because of how we judge the Modern Day play. If we're going to judge the modern day play it that way did it will come up short as dominant as he was. He only has two rinks Stephen a new for whoever's is Detroit just like you do and let me just tell you something. Yeah for a guy like Lebron James. He still has more to achieve to me. Greenie in order to be the second greatest player in the history of basketball. I just think it's shortsighted for people who have a wealth of knowledge to allow him to leap certain people that he has not achieve. What they've achieve has not been as dominant as they been. Dominating Stephen Singer say Oh God all star Games they all got their all NBA. They all got that. So here's what I say is different. When they were at their apex. How dominant were they amongst their peers? Right now if you look at Michael Jordan in the last dance you see all of these hall of fame players. He stopped from literally winning championships. In this era of basketball the broadening.

"Carpenter for those who don't know you host to sports radio talk show in Columbus. I'm sure you'd take a lot of calls. And I have a lot of conversations about the browns. What are the fans expectations for them? This year I think the fans are very optimistic. They really liked Kevin Stransky and what he was able to do in that Minnesota offense and get the most out of kirk cousins. The reason for the Baker Mayfield. Why it's so critical is. This is his fourth coach in his third season. And so if you look at it he's not gonna be able to get to a fifth coach if they end up moving on from Savannah key because they haven't had success a lot. Let's give a fall at the feet of Baker regular. Here's everything that he needs to be successful. And so this is his opportunity to become the franchise quarterback in Cleveland. If not he could be down the road of Alex Smith. Who's a great quarterback? Wait really well on his career. But if you look early on as might Nolan his Mike Single Terry Jim Tomasulo then Jim Harbaugh and they're ultimately trying to find a way to get rid of him and you don't ever get a chance to settle in and become that guy for the franchising so baker can't do that with Kevin Fancy this year. These probably never going to have that opportunity. Yeah I get it. But but bob what you say. The fans are optimistic. What exactly does that mean? What will they be? Satisfied of? This team isn't in the playoffs this year. Greeting the Cleveland veins exclusive for so long it was bound to turn at some point last year. I think it was a little bit too much. I think the right on the customer and this is a snide and seventeen. I don't know if they can get to ten six and the problem is like what he said. You have Lamar Jackson and fourteen to raise from last year in a ben is healthy. Pittsburgh is a real threat but that is another big concern. How good is Ben Rothlisberger? Going TO BE AFTER YEAR OFF high. We'll talk more about this as they continue. But I have to get to something here because there was some controversy last night in case you missed it in the UFC last night in Jacksonville Glover to share scored a fifth round T K over Anthony Smith. In the main event Smith suffered a broken nose a broken orbital loan and had two teeth not doubt our analysts Shell sonnen was not happy. That fight was not stopped earlier and he said so when he was on with aerial Halawani after the match. What is it corner? Therefore if you're not there to protect your guy to ten rounds in a row which by the way what three ten rounds in a row which has never been done in the history of the sport because it means you gotta get your guy out of there. I cannot believe that nobody saved him. He gave every clue that he was done. He had too much pride to get himself out of there. I think we appreciate that area. But he's giving every clue get me home. You don't stop the fight when you're when you're fighter can no longer move you. Stop the fight. When you're fire can no longer win. That was twelve minutes ago. If I may fighter and you ask me if I'm okay and I do not answer the question. I am giving you an answer hanging onto my pride..

"About where they are in the process. How far along the process if touching such happens as far stays opening schools backup? Schools are allowed to play. Or they're gonNA say you know. Clean Sweep of no schools that are going to be allowed to play or it's going to be regional. I need to know from the governing body who Emma Benchley at the player. I'm going to eventually have to deal with in order to be able to play in order to be able to transfer in order to be able to tap eligiblity. Let's use the word transfer here. Let me come back to you. Because in the notes and we were were considering the possibilities particularly out West in the PAC. Twelve where the CAL state school system has already announced that they will not have their students on campus. In the fall you used two words in the notes this morning as far as something. We could start to see with regard to players coming east. Yeah and this is something that the NCAA to John's point and that has been discussed around all of this would absolutely hate to see. It's the words that were told to me by a coach. Said Look we could see a mass exodus of players trying to just find an opportunity to play and it doesn't just apply to the PAC twelve. This could apply within a conference. Let's say that has eight. Schools can play the rest that can't because of state restrictions. So you may see some of these players look to transfer in that is being discussed right. Now it's a long way away from happening. I want to make that clear. But here's how it looks as far as transfer rules are in place right now for immediate eligibility. Because that's the key here. This doesn't make any sense unless you can be immediately eligible to play and you can see on there. I think the most important piece of these rules right now the. Ncaa has them is that you would have to receive some sort of way over from the school permission from the school that you are currently at in order to go to a different place and that just seems like it would be far fetched at this point for that to happen. I can't imagine that you just to use an example right here. That chip Kelly. Ucla'S GONNA say yeah sure my star players go and play you know somewhere in the ACC. They can go join Clemson at any time. That's something that just doesn't feel like it could happen. But as this continues to develop who knows and it has been brought up by many coaches on both sides of this thing. Wait a second. I don't WANNA lose to my players. And then some other coaches saying wait a second. What if we do see a scenario where some of our team gets infected with the virus and then we're looking at trying to still continue to play? Who knows what that would look like but would we see expanded rosters? How could transfers help at least in that capacity all of this is being thrown around? They're trying to keep safety as the foremost thing as we all know. Money is a big factor in this to Paul in so many different ways. I think a lot of us are coming to terms with just the enormity of the event that we are living through and sometimes you focus on the day to day impact having on your life and every now and again I find myself stepping back and saying wow this is going to have an impact on our lives going forward that I think I haven't fully considered how do you think what do you envision the impact of it on college football looking like I think you're a hundred percent correct greenie. We in debate. Which professional team or which show college football program should come back but this is a much bigger issue. This is an issue facing the entire world. And I think that's why this is such a difficult debate and I really don't think we're going to know for awhile. I know every time we talk to her conference commissioner or they say well mid-may now June. Now we need to know by middle of June. This could go on for a couple more months because I don't think they really know. Laura made a great point a minute ago. There's so many complications. I talked to a leading epidemiologists yesterday. And he said unless unless there are three or four criterium especially testing. It's almost impossible to get a college football team on on the field and that goes for every other sport as well John. Let me give you the final word here as you listen to this conversation you cover the sport. You played the sport your whole life. What are your thoughts as as you listen to all the things that are being thrown around right now you know I i WanNa see that the state of California and makes it better effort to try everything in their possible power to make sure that the athletes can play to make sure that schools can be open to make sure that there are public gathering. And I say that because there's so many other schools that are using this time grow twenty four seven to figure out all right what can happen. How can we make it happen? As opposed to just take the lazy round and thing all right you know what scratch it. We don't want anything to happen. And we're we're done with it you know. Try to get back to normalcy. That's what everyone's trying to do. So take some effort to do that and then if doesn't happen it doesn't happen. I guys thank you so much again. This is something that feels like. It changes every single day. We stay on top of it for you hear every morning as best we can. Meanwhile coming up on gap as we continue the. Nfl's a quarterback lead. You'll hear why Patrick Mahomes in the Mark Jackson are in position to dominate the position.

"I guess again I guess it predated daring fireball because that was all I tunes came out in two thousand or two thousand and ten thousand. I came out right because the IPOD came out in two thousand and one all. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of dates. But I you know famously. Remember that because the ipod announcement was postponed and was low key because it was after in the aftermath of nine eleven which has been on my mind a lot lately because I keep thinking what we're going through right now. The only comparison I can think of in terms of just the general uncertainty that every single person is experiencing right. Now is only comparable to nine eleven. And I know it's different in a whole bunch of ways but in just in terms of general uncertainty boy I remember that anyway that was all before daring fireball but the thing I remember and boy I wish I had been writing during fireball so I could point to was how emblematic of the difference between windows and Mac the difference in the quality of those weird custom you is was between sound jam and Audie on on the Mac versus went amp and I forget which one it was if it was sound Jim or audience that eventually supported win format so that you think sound jam. Let you use amp skins actually. Yeah and that sort of made sense because even though sound jam is the one that apple acquired and turned into tunes And still lives on. Today is the in two ways I guess as both the The music APP on Catalina and the TV APP on Catalina are both sorta forks of I tunes which was apples rebranded single skinned of course Version of sound jam right but the you know no surprise and both technically excellent and I guess I should. It's time to put a Lincoln to cable. Sasser is right up of when apple reached out to panic to think about you know the Ravi. They apple at two choices of things to buy and they were both very good options. And you know apple considered buying panic just to get audience. But I at my recollection was that while both were technically excellent especially given the constraints of the classic Mac. Os is absolutely insane to have background. Mp three players and like invisible transparent windows stuff like that like there was no support us for transparent windows and somehow they made at work and they just did a They just blog post about finding all the faces of audience. All those customers things as part of the cause. Panic has a podcast. Now Right I've been on and yeah. And and KRISTA MERGEN is is producing it and they didn't episode about audience. And then they did a thing about how they had to dig up all of their old skins and find a way to make them display properly. Which is really fascinating to that. Decca spelunker through twenty year old stuff. I will link to that noted but anyway I my hunch my my gut feeling and I think most people would agree with that. The skins for audion were slightly more exquisitely designed ones for sound. Jim No surprised coming from panic whose forte exquisitely pixel perfect chefs. That is the state of the art in user interface. Design right now sort of work and in the win APP stuff was like it was pretty much like the Vegas Strip like the bad of it flashy for sure. Not necessarily what you'd call dutiful. Yep what else I got more. Follow up Look you yeah one more. We were talking about this story Gherman report about apple perhaps. Do you know and file this under non sarcastic finally Allowing third party default APPs on IOS. By which we mean. Let's say you use spark or you use a g mail the g mail APP as your main email client. You could though the idea would be. You could say this is my main email client and so if you click a male to link in any APP it would open g mail or spark or whatever it is that you've said this is my main email client as opposed to Apple Mail and you could say Chrome is my default web browser. And so you open a web link anywhere that opens in your browser would open and chrome. It's so forth the angle on here that I need to follow up was with regard to I said something. Effective apple doesn't really have a financial angle here. Whatever their their many reasons and I defended it in some ways that it's not as much of a no brainer as some people would think especially people who like us who use third party apps in a really you know right about them and enjoy hearing about them and know developers of them and are enthusiastic about New Third Party. Apps it's easy to get caught up in enthusiasts and think this is just totally frustrating. Bs that apple doesn't allow you to set these things. As your default for these handlers. But it's you know I it requires nuance to think about. Why Apple might not have done it? It's not quite just in. It's definitely not indifference and I don't think it spite but the one thing I said was something to the effect of that don't really have a financial interest in it. It's not like when you use Apple Mail instead of the g mail APP. That apple profits from that. The thing that I over looked and I knew about this. I've known about this for years. Ever since it started. Is that the Safari. Versus other browsers thing is There's a lot of money involved And the thing I got hung up on. Was that even with third-party browsers you have to use web kit as the rendering engine and so in some extent. Even if you're using chrome or you're using fire Fox if you're using it on IOS using this far rendering engine web kit under the hood the difference is and it is a lot of money is that Google is at pays apple a ton of money to be the default search engine in safari. So when you go up to the location bar and you type Corona virus symptoms and hit return and it goes to Google by default and return search engines. The most recent information I've found. Did you update this? I don't know if you know this is this. Is Your your link? The twelve billion estimated twelve billion dollar check rhythm from Google to apple in two thousand nineteen. Yeah so and you know I would presume shifting away things have gone that it's only gone up since then and nobody really knows. I don't believe this has been confirmed whether this was the sourcing on. This will reportedly pay pay this. According to business insider it's comes from Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall. Rod Hall is actually a very good analyst. Yeah he gets on the apple analyst calls so they don't think he's a a rogue element or anything you think about it it's like it's like having Amazon affiliate fees or something like their search engine. Affiliate relationship and apple gets paid by Google for all of those search referrals and I'm sure if they were duct go searches duct go would pay something to accept. They wouldn't and they'd go out of business or whatever. I'm sure Microsoft would pay with being right. It's it's a they're sending business google's way And and they get paid for it. Which is there's an argument to be made that maybe apple should use something like duck duck go or apple should buy duck duck go and have it as neutral search engine that isn't tracking people. But that would be not just a nice move for consumer as they would be turning their back on billions of dollars a year if they did that right. So if we take rob hall's number at an again you might imagine that this is the at negotiated at the very highest levels of apple and Google. I I would assume eddy. Cue and Tim Cook are directly involved. I don't even know you know I. I don't know who the equivalent would be at at Google but you know. Twelve billion dollars is even by apple standards is a lot of money And it you know I don't forget it but I think I often I don't. I don't know that I bring it up enough. It is it does sort of it. Is it worth even more than an asterisk? It is A. Don't forget. Raise your hand. Don't forget about like when Tim Cook. Talks about apple having different Priorities in terms of privacy and he has even mentioned Google by name as a company that has by apples from apple's perspective lesser places a Lesser Priority on privacy of customers at that Apple. Isn't you know when they're taking twelve two or plus billion dollars a year to keep google as the default search engine in safari on all of their platforms. They're they're they're getting a pretty nice piece of that Pie and they're you know I. I don't think they're absolve in the least from all of the privacy implications of that. I mean if you're taking the money then you're you're on the hook for all of all of that and even even if you're you know limiting your disclosure of what you know and personalized information on all of those things which they have rolled into safari in in the end. You're still sending them to a Google page. Google knows your Ip address unless you're using a VPN. They can build a profile. They are going to show you ads. All of those things are still a part of that experience. You could argue that. Google is still also the best search engine experience and that's part of the argument. I've been using duck duck. Go ON MY MAC FOR AWHILE. And you know what? It's okay but there are moments where I have to. Just go to Google to find something because duck DOJ just can't quite do it. Google is slicker. It's it's very it's a good product but it's also it's Google. We all know what that means. It's definitely you know a complicated decision. But you know and part of the reason I I've been using duck go for years now enough as my default for enough years and for most times IT I. I'm not doing it despite myself. It's not like I'm you know living in a shack out in the woods. You know cutting my own buttering my own animals that I've caught in a trap. Duck duck go is very good search. Engine and if Google didn't exist and duck duck go where the best search engine we had. Today we would still all be raving when we really honest about what a marvel you know one of the great marvels of the current of the modern world. This search engine is that we can type these things and get the result but there are times there are definitely more times than vice versa. By far that you might type X Y Z. Expect to get a certain result and duck duck..

"Now he just doesn't have the wins. He's not gonna finish number one of the player raider among starting pitchers because it doesn't have enough wins. It's not really his fault, but his era is fantastic. I mean the last time that great kidney era this little couple years ago he wanted to the youngest shouldn't matter how many wins you have, what team you're on. It really shouldn't. Anyway. I think the grime Snell Noah are all on my top ten starting pitchers next season along with sure Zor along with sale. Who does not deserve the Cy Young this year. I'm sorry. It was in there. I'm gonna throw you question though, because because you mentioned the gram, how high are you going to put him in your rankings next year? You know he, he could have the same exact season and win fourteen games that have eight, you know that he could have the same exact season and win nineteen games next year because Blake Snell's is good. An example as any of this people had had on paper, I would bet that most people had the raise winning no more games than the Mets. There were people who had a borderline walk wildcard contender. So there you go, Blake Snell the accomplished it, I don't draft for wins and I don't think you do either. Nope. Nope, neither for good innings and strikeouts. I want era whip and strikeouts and I presume that if Jake degrom next season, if they don't build on the offense around with their own fault, but even with the same offense, I still think that's a win fifteen more more games next season and smells a great example. Raisins score ton runs. I mean, where are they? Ranking? Runs scored. I, I don't think it's okay. That number. It's not. It's not automobile league. It's in the middle. It's the middle of the pack. You're right. I mean, if we're going to see it anyway, look, I think all these guys are top ten starting pitchers. I'm not sure who's going to miss it. I don't think I have fifteen in my top ten Kershaw to me is going to be there, but like seven, eight or nine like he's not going to be in the top five from me when he miss starts, I can't take the chance. I think he will be in mind. I think the Graham will be ahead of him, however, which is why I was acting asking the question about him that top tier has changed is what I guess my point the top tier right now to me is sure tsar and sale and kluber. That's it Kershaw out of that top tier two grams not going into the top tier, not yet. So you raise those top three. You raise the sail question now. I'll be clear here. I'm raising the question because I think it's important. It's not that I'm concerned about it, but after this injury and the time, is there any? Well, one of the things that I really liked about Chris sale was the durability year over year on the volume he gave you in by the way in the points..
