That's why I'm calling So Lewis are collectors is buried in the knobs card burial grounds up in Maine. And he he passed away. I think in his forties Because he liked his beer. All right, but whatever happened The fact that they named the Indians essentially Kind of honorary thing, because Luis are collectors. I think at the time was the only Native American playing in the league. Well, he he was the first he was the first. Yeah. Recognized Native American to play Major League baseball. Right, right, denies with a plaque at progressive field he's recognized in the team's media guide, and I suspect Uh, You know, whatever nickname the team goes to. It's not going to a race over 100 years of the franchise being known as the Cleveland Indians just isn't as and race the History of the Cleveland naps when the team was named after an Apple Asia way. And I think sock. Alexis will continue to get recognition from the franchise and at the ballpark, you know, everybody seems to think it's such a bad name. I always thought it was a good name, and I was I grew up. I've been in Boston here for Guess, 70 years now, but I grew up in the 100 miles from the old Cleveland Stadium, and I was there in 1948. Uh, and watched the satchel Paige break in is a 42 year old rookie. Our Larry Doby, the first American League Black Plague Center field and also relative that Bob Hope Don't know how many people know it. But Bob Hope was a prizefighter in Cleveland under the name of package East. About that. See, I just proved to you. I knew what I was 14 years old. And, uh, Cleveland Stadium, and it's 72,000 people there that day for C Satchel Paige sit down. The New York Yankees for three or three were three innings of relief. I just couldn't figure out why. They're making. Ah, Anant. I Native American Name. And most people don't even know who Lewis Clark. Alexis is that has happened to Ever ready about him years ago, but I just wanted Throw that out there. Uh, the fact that there is a reason that they were named the Indians of the time and it was nothing bad it was. You know, that's my end of my speech. Well, you're right. And you know, you mentioned Satchel Paige. And you know there was criticism when the Indian science Satchel Paige and Bill effect signed him in 1948, and some people thought that was a publicity stunt. But the actual page 16 games and without every one of those winds, the Indians would not have gone into the playoff against the Red Sox won the playoff game. It's Fenway Park. On into the world Syriza against the phrase and beat the Boston Braves Give Cleveland it's last World Syriza victory, but hopefully that last only temporary And I also liked it like the fact that one of my favorite players Uh, Ended up eventually with the Boston Red Sox. And who was it? You got to tell us. We don't know your favorite. Okay, I'll tell you Itwas He was the manager of the Cleveland Indians. Both girls. Lou Boudreau, who's now honor with a tattoo outside of Aggressive field. New boot Lou Boudreau. With the manager, and he was the youngest Youngest manager in the leg, and he Played Sure its value stock also And then the end of his career where I became a Cleveland er. Boston Red Sox with short stock. So whenever I guess I'm a Not running out of ideas to talk about here, but we'll think me just just want to throw all that stuff out there. Thank you. Thank you. All right. Not many people know Bob hopes boxing name. I mean, I knew it because I said this time, he said it. That's why you're getting a big buck. And that's why I'm not sharing anything with either of you, Morris. There are two things you have to do before you leave. And that is yes. I'm curious of where the Cleveland team played before League Park. Ah, there were several ballparks before league Park and I can tell you. It was a spot in Closer. To downtown Cleveland. And and as I recall, it got hit by lightning or there was a fire and then Uh, over send the the owner moved the team out to 66 Lexington to give you Ah, more definitive answer.

Um There are a couple of trailers that you can find that apple podcasts and Spotify and you could subscribe there. We are expecting to launch in May And with every show there will be a little bit of baseball, but instead of, you know, making baseball the big part of the story I'm finding people like Corwin like Charles Einstein like Rod Serling, who you might not initially connect with baseball, but you know, you take a ride Serling.

Interview With Shane Balkowitsch
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today we are going old school and we are going deep into a really really wonderful type of photography. That's not practice very much anymore and really frankly when you see it. It's going to knock your socks off. We're talking with shane belkevich. Shane happens to live just a couple hours. West of me out here on the great plains of north america up north dakota chain that afternoon. How's everything out in the middle part of the state. good scott. thanks for having me on. We've got a little snow last night. Which was a very welcomed. Got a little snow over here. It's cold it's january is imagine about winner on the american that should be asked should be. You're absolutely right shane. You are just absolutely mesmerizing with the work. You're doing you do wet plate colin on photography. You do when one of the earliest styles of photography and admit you know. When i first heard about it i thought why in the world would anyone want to go through that amount of work for an image that i can do in my mirrorless. Dsl are very quickly. And then i realized how wrong. I was can't do that image and i certainly can't come up with a product that you've come up with so first question for people that that are familiar with the process. What is wet plate photography. What is the whole call it on process. Yeah so a wet plate clothing. Photography's invented by frederick scott archer in. He started working on about eighteen. Forty eight we believe in eighteen fifty one. He came out with a journal article in a scientific journal and presented it to the world. So what we're doing. I'm sure many of your listeners. Know about daguerreotype process which was invented by the declare. The frenchman About ten years. Before what plaguing frederick scott archer wanted to improve on that and This is what he came up with and the final product. And what your comment about why. You can't capture wet played in a modern a digital camera. Is that this is completely analog and the final images the images that i make. I an amber typist. That means i make my photographs on glass specifically for me black glass and these images are made out a pure silver on glass. And what's about silver silver does not degrade so these images that i have Have made over the last eight years of made a three eight hundred of them all by ten most most eight by ten black last amber types of they'll be here thousand years from now broken which which is not something you can save for princeton pigments in paintings and other things like that so the these are very archival images and i. it's just a very very romantic process. i was never photographer before. A two thousand twelve took my first exposure on october. Fourth never owned a camera. And i just find myself chasing this this historic process. It is really really interesting and we need to tell people that there is a movie out. There is called belkevich b. a. l. k. o. w. i t. s. c. h. on video. It's on amazon. Prime it is a documentary about you and your work and folks. You need to go there. You need to watch this film if you are in the any kind of photography. You need to do this but shane one of the things. That really intrigued me. Watching the film is that most of us that are in the photography files were making digital files. Or you know. We're coming up even if we're still dealing with old thirty five millimeter film or that kind of stuff Medium format film. You know we come up with a negative but then you know actual print is a temporary thing. You much more like a sculptor are making an object's this glass plate and it's not revisable you can't go back and tweak the highlights you can't go back and ask grain if you want. What is the appeal of making that object versus a kind of idea. We have to understand most web play. Cloudy and artists There was one here in bismarck. North dakota orlando scott gough. When he he was known for capturing the first ever photograph of sitting. Bull here bismarck. In the in this process that i practice and i i happen to capture ernie lapointe the great grandson. The city hundred thirty five years later in the same town in the same process but goth would have made a negative like you had said he would make a glass of so instead of putting his images onto black glass which you cannot contact with. He would have used clear glass. Clear glass as you insinuated. You can make multiple copies and you can enter. The final product in that scenario is a print. Because you want to be able to sell you know apprentice shayna print scott where wants to print you can make as many prints of these want is your business and it. Did you know good to have a one off plate because you and you know when you're talking about eighteen fifty one is no way of duplicate and they didn't have scanners and we couldn't do anything like that so you know. I think there's something very special about the the fact that these images are one offs and they can never be duplicated in they can never be replicated. When i make one of these images. I've for instance. I've dropped an image once and tried to go five minutes later. Ten minutes later tried to make this image with the same sitter the same camera. The same lenses saint chemistry. And i can never get back to that so if you look at this romantically. I'm not actually taking snapshots people actually making ten second movies. I'm still life movies. Because my exposures in my natural studio that i built here in bismarck. It's called nostalgic glassware plate studio the first one in in the country bill of the ground up and over a hundred years. I'm making ten second exposure. So there's heartbeats and there's blood flowing through the person there's a couple. Maybe a blinker to and what. I really love about this is. Maybe there's a thought so. I'm capturing thought on that piece of glass pure silver. That'll be here on.
Fresh "Sox" from Tom Moore
"Oh, First thing I want to talk about is the stimulus package that $91.9 trillion relief package, which is more than twice of what the Obama package was in 2000 and nine It's a lot a lot of money. My first of all, I think it Z. There is a need for stimulus package in spite of the good economics date of this came out last couple of days. There is a need for that. There is a need for for more money for the in money to folks that $1400 number. We'll get into that in a minute. There is need for unemployment support. There is need for rent support. There is need for money for that, For a fact seen all of that is very for unemployed. All of that's really important. My problem with it. Is that the dollar amount that's going to individuals. Is really, really too high. You know what if someone's making 80 under $80,000 an individual they're going to get a check for $1400 if they have a wife. And they're making. Let's say $180,000. They're gonna get $2800. If they've got four kids they're going to get they're going to get over $8000 in stimulus checks. A friend of mine who's who lives in Colorado was stalking him today, and he has four kids, he says, Listen, this is great. He makes out of $90,000 in the college professor at at some school. Anyway, he says This is really good. I'm going to get 90 $8200. On top of my with called $95,000 salary because he's got four kids. That's too much. I mean, I think there's lots of folks in need it. But those kind of numbers they're just off the charts in my judgment. Anyway, we want to talk about that the good stuff in it and some of the what seems to be Democratic. I'm going to use the word pork. But certainly things for the Democrats wanted push. But on the flip side, we clear we still have the acts of the vaccine. I saw a number tonight that almost three million doses of the vaccine. We're putting people's right arms. Today. Almost three million Member what? But Biden had said he had promised 100 million within the hunt. 1st 100 days. He'll get to the hunter. There. Don't 80 some 1087 million. Now he'll get to the 100 million Before his 60th day in office, Clearly a phenomenal success. The flip side is a lot of particular. Southern states are opening at full capacity, which probably is going to be a super spreader, and we're gonna be back in the same situation. Point number. One is Florida, which is opening up almost 100% and for spring break, And that's important. The tourism and spring break is really important. This Florida I know that, but it's also a super spreader opportunity. Let's go to that particular with some of these new various anyway, want to talk about all of that? Also want to talk about the fact that the last Saturday night Trump spoke of the CPAC conference and he said more of the same big live we've been hearing for. Well from the election that it was stolen from him. And of course that led to all of the other things, including the riots, son on January 6th and everyone, you know, talk about all those things, but before we do that, we want to check sports for a minute. We want to talk to mark About the ball. Baltimore Orioles Mark Welcome to the show. Yes. Good evening should vote up before I get to my main topic. I actually want to make mention tomorrow. It's a special day My family tamal happens to be my mom's birthday. That's good. Be turning 81 years of age long if you're listening tonight, Monster when your birthday tomorrow. Hope it's nice and sweet. Okay, good. Absolutely to your mother. Happy birthday one day early. Thank you. Well, the Oh, I'm gonna tell you in 1983. Which was the last year to the bottle Oil seven Waterworld. Seriously, That was the year and maybe 83. I graduated from the American University with a undergraduate degree from the college board concerned, Okay, there was a marriage your name. Down after Billy who led the team? Yes, will Serie championship and five games against Philadelphia. Effective, different deciding game was played in Philadelphia in the late afternoon, and the oils took the bus to and from Philly. They got back late. About 11 o'clock that evening. The following the capture the real seriously. Yeah. Joe Billy just died. I think this last week if I'm not mistaken. That is correct. And he had because he was one of the few managers who fulfilled this legacy of actually winning a world serious 14, which is still I'm hoping still with hope. One of these days will reclaim its former glory. But that was very bad, Big banner year. And a story I graduated from university and later on a few more later. They're yours, made it to the World Series and played against the brotherly love city of Philadelphia. Using bus is this is a better plan that's are still clearly remember from way back Web But it was not just, you know, And so most people think of Earl Weaver, and that's true. He won that. But the last world serious which counts is back in the 1983 on that is almost a long time ago. A long time. Yes, well, you know something? The sad part is it's gonna be a long, long time before the Orioles are back. Because well, I think so. I really do. I just don't like me. How can they compete with these really deep pocket teams, you know, like the you know, look at, you know, the supposedly the richest owner in baseball. Is the owner of the Boston Red Sox. Uh, how can I mean he's worth billions of dollars? Up so any and you know there's no salary cap in baseball, so anybody that we would want that he that he wants he gets Look at the kind of money that some of these other l A to the L. A Dodgers. You know, they've got so much money, and there's no salary cap. So you know, we I don't think we'll ever be able to get the quote the quality of players. And keep them long enough to compete against the Red Sox against the Yankees against a couple of other teams, So I just I mean, I hope they do. Trust me. I do. But one more quickly. But you mentioned the red stuff in the oils, The oils and Red Sox play start the regular season off on April 1st No fooling up in Boston to 10 Start and then the oil first home game. Open up the season will be the following first a April 8 PM Bono against ST West Socks and three Oh five, you know, would be happy with what I hope I hope is by then that we've got to the point where Uh, pick a number. 25% 35% capacity would be permitted. So we get some fans understand postcards. They didn't make sense, You know, Keep looking game after game. It's like, well, yeah, I would. I hope they do mean that the management of the team is good. I think that that Hyde is an excellent manager. And all of that, and Mike Elias is is a good GM. But I think they've They're hampered by the by two things number one by the, uh, ownership, which I think is kind of frugal. Because they don't have the bucks and I don't think they want to spend them. And secondly, just because the competition so, man, I truly want them. I love the Orioles. I really do. Let me just say quickly. I just want to see again. Uh, before Joe out to Billie is May he rest in peace? I have the show. Almost what we see in Hebrew and again, Mom, if you're listening my stove on your birthday come all hope it goes. Well, listen, Thank you so much, and I will show shallow. Absolutely. Just for that go. Absolutely in a matter of fact, Joe, all to build his daughter was in one of my classes at Towson One semester. Remember her very don't remember her. Well, that I remember something that she was in my class anyway. But yes, I he, uh way Certainly wish you know the best for the Altobelli family. The death of Joe Altobelli editorials, But we shall see what where they go anyway. Let's Let's now go toe to talk about the house Bill number.

Fresh update on "sox" discussed on Retirement Road Map
"Know One. You may know Dixie's here. And that Um Schieber. How do you like Morgan? All right, Tom. Well, let me introduce both of you to a gentleman named David from Weymouth and David. You called in to speak to these guys. Here they are for you. Yes. Thank you very much. I just say good evening to all three gentlemen. But my time by question was for Tom. Cheaper, is it? I'm sorry, but I just was wondering in the Hall of Fame. Do you have an all time favorite Red Sox player and also favored exhibit? In the Hall of Fame. For the Red Sox. So, uh, as far as an all time Red Sox. Uh, player is a zoo fan, um You know my fault all time. Red look, favorite players is Fred Land. It's not even close. Um, you know, I really Really did. Cut my teeth on the 75 Red Sox, even though I'm from ST Louis on the cardinal fans, But it seems like in 75, the Red Sox seem to always be there Saturday. Game of the week. I have to research that at some point, it just means That's all a lot of this, like games and I found little spread land so easily prevalence. Like every Red Sox player in terms of exhibits. There's you know, we have lots of exhibit 60 spending the museum tons of times. And he can attest to the fact that the rest of us are spread out throughout the museum. So if you want to come in, we have doesn't exhibit on the third floor about baseball records full of rats is that included on the second floor called Whole New Ball game about baseball from the seventies on up Full of red's okay, but sort of wherever you go, you go.

I was on my way into work, and I had heard it And my son is a huge Red Sox fan is well, he and his Children, of course as well. So, so it's kind of Ah..
How To Clean Up Your Goals
"So with this often looks like for teams is having some kind of metrics. We've talked about this surely hundreds of times on this show before the idea of an objective and a key result. That's the same thing as saying Some kind of goal Some kind of intention and proof that you've met that intention or in some ways the The key results is the definition of success on that pathway towards that goal and so most teams set these most teams. And when i say most teams set these i mean that most teams have have some kind of way of evaluating success. But most of the time. They're not doing it in a way. That's measurable what i mean by this. Most teams will have. Let's say quarterly reviews. I most teams are going to have some kind of where the rubber meets the road moment. But the backwards thing is that most teams are not explicitly defining these these are sometimes softer metrics and often. They're not optimized or measurable in any meaningful way so you probably are measuring it but you're probably not measuring the same way that someone else says and so success means different things to different people on the same team. This is most critically important when you have a difference in your definition of success. And some stakeholder or Someone who is responsible for financing team or financing your job. Someone who is going to decide whether or not you're going to continue working in this capacity if you have different definitions of success between those layers you can come into some really damaging problems for teams and this creates a lot of miscommunication. Not to mention that you're probably not going to meet your goals as team as a company. So what i want to talk about today is fixing this problem. I starting by actually measuring something that you can both agree on. But then i want to go upstream and we'll talk about that upstream part in just a moment but first sock about what it means to have a shared. Measurable goal shared measurable goal. Means that if i as an outsider and given the proper measurement tools i can have the same measurement as an insider would have in other words. The measurement should be observable. It should be a concrete measurements. Something that is definitive and available a good example of this might be percent change in some particular number. Another good example might be a particular rate Of of a particular event occurring other examples include a reducing a number from some Magnitude to another magnitude sometimes even two zero and there are even good measurements that are binary where we can say. True or false. This thing For example did we publish the thing that we set out to publish right. That's a that's a good example of a binary key result will stick with terminology. So it's just as important though since we've kind of given a definition for what a good key result might look like we need to talk about. What a good key result doesn't look like or more specifically what bad key results might be so remember. The definition here is that anyone given the proper tools and access could come up with the same measurement And these are outsiders right. These are people who don't need context. A bad key result then would be something that requires context or requires some kind of institutional or cultural knowledge to be able to measure. Now this once again. We're not talking about access or you know how to how to filter that data or something like that. We're talking about measures that are based in someone's state of mind or opinion or in some collective since of of satisfaction.

"Sox pitcher Garrett Richards, his first spring training start, was bailed out by the new mercy. See rule the new rule of mercy rule in spring training that has allowed this year, so he got only one out during his first start, loading the bases and walking in a run through 23 pitches in the first inning. You're allowed to now pull a picture this spring after he has thrown 20 pitches regardless of how many outs or runners on base. There are also it was bailed out. Then he went back out, of course and tossed a 123 2nd inning. But Go out there after the manager sees you through a lot, and it's kind of a probably nice feeling. Probably got a lot of guys probably wish that could happen during the regular season. You know it as well. George Wallace Wtlv Sports

I'll Peanut Jam Your Brain
"Okay so earlier. I did this thing. That probably sounded weird to you. Emily your sentence. It didn't make any sense but you know another day. Another dollar alright. Okay well well so when someone does something unexpected like that when they're talking to you or get this even when you're reading something that doesn't follow the standard conventions of the language. Something kind of cool happens in your brain l. So they can actually measure this right so when we studied brain one of the ways that we can study. Brain activity is by measuring electrical current. That is flowing through your cortex rates so the surface of your brain for the cells to talk to each other. They released electrical current. This is sarah phillips our expert i mentioned earlier. I am a rising fourth year. Phd student in the linguistics department at new york university and also a member of the neuro linguistic slab very cool. She studies bilingualism and code switching which we will touch on in a future episode because it is objectively but for today. She's helping me out as explain. These things called n. Four hundred and p six hundred. He's are measurable responses. That happen your brain as you process language okay so little electrical signals that your brain is always giving off right but these are different from your normal brain buzzing. That would happen. If you're listening to like a quote normal sentence got it basically these phenomena are your brain saying like hey hold up something weird happening here okay so like when i peanut jam your brain that an example of one that can spark some. You know chemistry for you. Oh yeah yeah. I felt wrong and a lot of ways so as i peanut. Jam your brain. That's a good one anyways. Yes in nineteen eighty two psychologists. Marta kunas and steven hilliard published a paper showing that among these electrical signals. There was this big response about four hundred milliseconds person. Reading a sentence came across a word that was like semantic league confusing or the meaning was wrong. Okay so it's like a linguistic oddball sentences thrown your way your brain will produce a end. Four hundred response four hundred milliseconds after you heard peanut gem in that benefits. I peanut jam. Your brain your brain was like whoa. What's that doesn't make any sense. Exactly yeah and your brain. Does this kwong in less than half a second. Which is wild. So sir philip's art linguist from earlier explained. It happens in other scenarios like garden path sentences. So you start to hear a sentence and you think you know what's going to happen next but then something goes wrong okay and so when something goes wrong your brain has to go wait what. I don't think i interpreted this how it was supposed to be. I've got a restart which sarah says can happen with the sentence as simple as he spread the warm bread with socks yummy. This is fun. I like this okay. So how does this compare to. The p six hundred you were mentioning earlier is different than and four hundred the big differences just that they go in opposite directions and they happen at different points so when she says opposite directions. She's talking about how they kind of show up on these science graphs. You've them sure one one shows up in the positive and the other shows up as negative and and okay but for me the easiest thing to hang onto is that they happen at different times so the four hundred happens four hundred milliseconds after the wuxi. The p six hundred. The brain gives off slightly later. That response peaks roughly six hundred milliseconds after the woopsie. That's really it and we're trying to understand when we see this type of fact. What could this affect represent. What is this affect characterizing. What's happening in the brain in. Initially researchers thought that the answers to these questions was that the end four hundred was happening because of semantic errors so involving the meaning of words right and that the p six hundred was showing up because of grammatical errors which not to brag. But i make all this and we've met you for that. Yeah yeah sure okay but but it turns out as research into all this has gone on these effects might be more generalized kind of than researchers previously thought it might just have to do with how your brain processes complex language and this just shows that when we think about language and how we process language. They're actually a lot of steps involved. Starting from recognizing that the sound that you hear is a sound of the language that you speak and how those sounds then combined to form some parts of words.
Milton hot sauce maker nabs spot in Boston Red Sox lineup
"Park's Gonna have a new official hot sauce this season comes from a curious Caribbean native chef who grew up just south of Boston. Kamal Jared was born in Jamaica grew up in Milton, saying his family's background got him started in cooking. And then it took off from there. Lot of my cooking and experimentation had to deal with kind of blending those two cultures. He's now the creator of Hillside Harvest Hot Sauce, which is made in Dorchester and now the official hot sauce of the Red Sox. Partnership. He couldn't be happier about having the opportunity to try us within within the confines of something that they love doing like going to a Red Sox game, And even as fans slowly get back to Fenway Hillside harvest will be ready for that new normal that the ballpark going forward. There's gonna be a lot more single serving, and so if you think of like ketchup packets or hot sauce packets or things like that, and that's how you'll find hillside harvest soon enough at Fenway.

A an interesting wrinkle a very interesting twist that has all kinds of implications show. What did you. How did you react to that that big moment at the end of episode five. Yeah it was wild. I mean like when the doorbell rings or the can't remember. I got really excited. All who is this like is this going to be atro- and it was and it just gave me the sense that like it. It's all fair game like any marvel cinema now. It feels like we could. We could see reference. Which i love. I love the idea of the acknowledging all that history and from a business point of view it makes a lot of sense to get people to watch all those x.

Exploring And engaging autism With Doctor Todd Peter Levine.
"This is when this is the brand messaging podcast. Wait what really okay today. I'm here with todd. Peter levin he happens to not be a serial killer. Actually we can make it four words. It could be a doctor. Todd peter levin Like would you like fava beans with that. Now we're now we're really going. Its silence of the. Todd's thing in all seriousness. Though because we we are going to start joking. Not todd for a while. I didn't talk to him for a while. But dr todd. Peter levin is here with me today again. This is loren wise and the title of today's episode is exploring in engaging autism with dr todd. Peter levin todd tatas is. We're not doing this. Dr stuff are we know. Please don't please call todd. Thank thanks so much for having me. No i go by todd all over the place professionally and personally so i appreciate that. That's cool and it's a little bit more laid back okay. So we met. Let's just breaking the ice or breaking back the history here. We met nine thousand nine hundred eighty five correct. That can't camp frank a day in west. Brookfield massachusetts in a yeah. It was. That was the summer that we both turned. Eleven that we're both i. Would i remember it myself. Because i can't speak for you. Awkward lanky looking for socialization may be interested in girls and Stumbling miserably over ourselves but a great place to do that. I thought you know camping canoeing. Linda cabin it was awesome. I look back. And i found one of those photos that my wife saw it was like bothers is really short shorts. Unlike not only was it. An awkward timing was nineteen eighty five. Yeah and don't forget. Don't forget the tall socks socks pulled up to your knees with stripes. You know along the top part of it. That was a big move for me. Absolutely now i before we dig into him and and he's here for autism. He is a doctor. We're going to talk about the otherness. Podcast his podcast. It's in the process of production. But were you there and this is not a rumor. A boat blew up one summer. I was there when it happened. I didn't see it but lightning struck the lake and struck the boat and there was an explosion. Was that we in the same camp that year was that a year before a year later. Do you remember that it might know because that is definitely something i remember and my because you were there a few summers before me. And then i what happened was are overlapping. Ear was the first year. I was there in the last year. You were there. So there wasn't a boat explosion but was something almost as exciting. The you know the the fireworks on the fourth of july someone you know had a roman candle you know the the the basically the two that shoots balls at out and nailed someone in the face. Where the counselors. And i have no idea. Yeah that was. That was the excitement of eighty five. I think maybe was. I don't know if it was summer. But that was the most explosive in terms of flames. And and that sort of thing. I do remember. I hadn't picked up the drums at that point but there was a cabin. I think two or one up from ours and it was a guy with the way i remember. It was a white drum set and a whole bunch of us were inside and he was drumming. And i don't know again a month necessarily gonna say it was camp david. I remember just being in awe of this. This guy in this drum said and loud and rock and roll and i don't know maybe it was that summer camp and start for me. Yeah no i do remember it. It was yeah two cabins down. I guess it was empty and the guy had a drum set and he reminded me of sort of every eighties rocker. You would have any developing eighties rocker. I remember long blonde hair. You know terminator sunglasses. Some sort of cutoff t shirt. And he's a good guy too. So yeah i remember standing watching him and or hearing from like you know two hundred yards away or more because it was loud of course so and here's a little bit more of the irony. I'm always the one in most of my podcasts. When i talk to people about podcast say you know what dig in. Don't go into crazy stories too often. Don't talk about things that people can't necessarily relate to you. But i rarely have guests much less guests that i haven't really seen and the better part of thirty five years so i'm breaking my own rule here but the leading a little bit forward here we you added me on facebook and i guess i just accepted and didn't even put two and two together a little back before we connected in the fall right so that was going back a few years. I remember the name loren wiseman and you know as as we caught up you sort of picked up. I do remember quite a few things over the years. So i remembered hearing the name. See well reading the name seeing the photo in. Of course i wasn't gonna put two and two together and say that was definitely the kid i went to camp with but i said hey in the spirit of connectedness let's do it and then what transpired from there was reading about your work in authentic messaging brand messaging and sort of putting important things out there in ways that are about the about the authenticity authority. Not about kind of gone with the fads and stuff too. So that moment. are those your post. Plus my transition in life from where i was living in rhode island to cenex were important. Wants to and as podcast idea came to me with a group of friends from college a few months earlier i reached out and the results were
Boston Red Sox trade Benintendi to Kansas City Royals in three-team deal that includes New York Mets
"We did have a A trade godown wasn't a blockbuster. But i think certainly noteworthy is that. The red sox have been shopping. Andrew benintendi for quite a while. Now and i didn't understand why this guy was a top ten pick by the red sox not that long ago but here are the details in this three way trade between boston. The mets and kansas city. The red sox receive outfielder slash d. H. franci cordeiro Right handed pitcher josh win. Chaussee three players to be named later one from the mets to from the royals. The royals get outfielder. Andrew benintendi and the mets received outfielder khalil. ali now benintendi. As soon as he showed up last year he got hurt and he was offered a year. He only played like two weeks and batted one. Oh three he had a strained ribcage but coming into last season he was a career. Two seventy seven hitter and averages about eighteen home runs a game and he's due to make six point six million this year in his second. Rv'er so he has Another year. Sorry i know he has another two years after that. So i argue but the royals will now put benintendi in left field every day because if you think about with mary field i guess he's an outfielder our second baseman so a combination of him. Edward olive arison. Michael eight taylor. But the red sox for their part we'll get cordeiro which is a mix of alex dugo number. How highly regarded wasn't a dodger system. Hunter renfrow talked about yesterday as blooms gonna take a chance on him and that park but cordeiro as to thirty six hitter and he strikes out thirty five percent of his trips to the plate
Overcoming Conflict Dangerous Love Chad Ford - burst 13
"Let's do another one of these scenarios. Because i've had something recently come up again In terms of a scenario that i think is all too common. And i don't know it's hard for people to get past it but again it's it's a it's a relationship whether it be has been wife for living together situation. Whatever it may be. She's done something that he doesn't like and now he starts looking at her phone and digging into right now she feels like trust has been violated and then now he's angry right. He so angry in fact he says it's it's her fault it's her fault it's her fault it's her fault. Meanwhile sees now she's gone into avoidance right. She's not saying things she's claiming up right and he's and he's coming at her heart and he cannot. He cannot get there to see her as a vow or human because right now she's in it and he's fuming angry. How do we. How do we make that transition to get from fuming. Angry at that person so that we can get to the reconciliation. You no it's It's interesting when. I hear that you use the word angry a lot and certainly that can be an emotion but usually beyond the angry as we get deeper. There's a sense of betrayal and pain absolutely right right. The root of all. We're afraid of pain. When pain comes we i as human beings. We try to avoid pain. Even when pain is good for going into the gym and working out. Our muscles are supposed to be sore at the end to tells us we had a really good workout. You know we we avoid it and so on one end. You've got a wife. Who's at a lot of pain. Who feels that. Her trust has been violated and i don't know what he found on her phone. But maybe there's some stuff that that probably isn't good in a relationship didn't maybe it's happening on the phone but there's a lot of pain they're right on one hand so any an engagement now with my partner. Who's angry and furious. It's just going to be more paint. So what do i do i avoided. Run away you've got a you've got a partner who feels betray. Who is found stuff on the phone or whatever that that that that's been really hurtful to them but underneath all that anger is paying. I've been hurt by this. I've been hurt by this person right. And now you have two people that are hurting and you know we think about this. You know. I lived a little bit in the country for a while. You know what animals are in pain. What do they do. You know they move into the corner and you know if anybody sort of comes at them or whatever they lash out and talk to people that are in this immense amount of pain and what the other thing that's really interesting about pain is when pain becomes severe. It becomes all consuming. All i can think about is my pain. How about yours right. i can only about mine. That's all i could deal with right now is i'm deeply inward. We call the sort of mindset inward. Because what i'm thinking about is all my pain how you hurt me. How you didn't trust me. You did this and that story just tells me over and over again. You're in pain. It's the other person that's causing the pain. I've if the other person would change the pain would go away but i can't engage that other person matt anymore because it's just too dangerous to do now. Sounds like the the partners doing that the opposite way right. I'm going to keep pushing pushing pushing pushing to get this person. I'd change but i'm frustrated. Because the more i the more distant she becomes right right and and so it's really interesting. The solution for both of the parties the same even though their actions are really different. Which is a half the start thinking about. Why is the other person reacting. The way they're reacting right now what what is going on there. What are their challenges. Their pains their struggles that they're going through right now. What is that like is. That's a story that we don't tell ourselves typically when we're in conflict and then i have to ask myself even a second which will be painful. But it's the good kite type of pain. It's the sort of pain it's gonna get you to where you wanna go. Is there anything that i've done. Small medium large. The may have added to that pain right now. Right as they're suffering. Do they look at me and say that thing that i said that text that i said or whatever it was it's added on. And what could i do. Small medium large that could alleviate just a little bit of that pain and and if we just one of them by the way where to start thinking that way and just try one thing the start alleviating that pain everything that the dynamic of that relationship will start to change. Everything will start to get to a place where we can have the honest discussions that were probably going to have to have not to be able to talk about that true Mercy justice a pattern that we talked about before. And i just read this or i recently wrote this blog about. You know what you valentine's day. Valentine's day socks somebody. And you know but it's you know roses chocolates and all that sort of stuff and to me. Give them the gift of seeing them. Give them the gift of thinking about you. Know whoever that is that you want you want to reach out to an ask yourself this simple questions like what's hard for this person right now. What's really what sort of way to paint. Are they carrying around to this person right now and is there anything that i've done. Add to it in. What could i do to help just alleviate a little bit of that pete in that person nothing no candy. No roses no card. No romantic dinner. We'll have his deepa impact on on that person than just doing that sort of sympathy and if it if it's done that way it's it changes everything getting past that intensity though and i mean to me because like you know you when somebody's so you know how this is. I mean you bet you bet sports you know when somebody's got all their juices and intensity up there is no talking to them right and

"sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"Okay. So no one was above five for the ER a like that's not that bad of rotation buckles was pretty not good stretch of his career know it's not Joe Kelly still. It's still relevant Thursday and water and rigas. Everyone's telling me he's going to win twenty games again, which was crazy to think he's gonna win twenty games. Again Rick Porcello serviceable. I wish they brought him back this year at the price at Mets were paid him and Wade Miley home. Yeah, whatever. He's your Marty Perez Wade Miley actually after he left the Red Sox. He got better, but I'm still I mean like what's that? The five is the mark for being good place to park be good. Just like if you're under five that's not terrible, which is what we're seeing like there. There is a team right now is 616 I think like that's awful. Do you know what their run differential is wage differential is the worst in baseball by far its - 60. Okay, the Pirates have won ten games. I think I think it's thank you James. It's 11:00. Now, whatever. There's like - 4 or so, it's it's unbelievable. How much worse they are? I said, sometimes you gotta tank for Trevor Lawrence and that's what the Red Sox are doing. Apparently throw them out there. If Trevor Lawrence is a blame football game or get him on the mound use that use that Cannon because they would it be the most entertaining thing of this team this year again besides like Alex Verdugo is really I'm excited for that kids baseball future here. I think that job Actually got something going with especially cuz he was a Red Sox fan growing up. I think he's going to be a solid addition to this team baseball wise. I hope you're right. But hey, Tom. Thanks for coming on. Hey, thanks for having me man..
"sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"There's a dog You should definitely see moved on from the obviously traded Mitch Moreland. But Martinez might have been the one that I keyed on the most and said he's got someone some team out there is going to need him. He's going be of use to them the faith in National League. Now it kind of because they didn't trade him that tells me that but it didn't get as many offers for them. Then they get the market they wanted for him. So if you're on Bloomberg, I just move on from them to move on from when you could possibly trade him in the offseason if he opts in, you know what I mean? So I think maybe they kept their options open as far that goes. Maybe they move on from some of the other names because they said I will get a better Market in the off-season Cristian Vasquez being another one. And by the way Christian baskets the more I thought about that was that's a power-hitting catcher. Those guys are kind of hard to find. So unless slowly Back-up Plan change not just give these guys away. So that's why I kind of warmed up to the weekend too high in bloom had when I think if you asked me two weeks ago, if the players are just listed off for the only ones that they traded I would have been. I mean, yeah, and you're so J D Martinez obviously is the most important one that you that brought up and I think he's an end up saying here cuz I don't think the Market's going to be as big for him as he wants. Especially wage not taking over the d h, but they're not going to fold. Eh next year, right. They're going back to regular season. I'd be surprised. I mean, I think remember they are but like with the players are going to say give us the full-time DH it creates more jobs going to create, you know more opportunities for those guys. There's no reason to have pictures hip. I mean, that's the other thing too. Like with this code would be a sport some of these things are working right the national like DH Works. Yes. I mean like again, I'm just a temporary host right now for the show. But as of right now with this is an anti pitchers hitting podcast. I am so against that but it's good for the business for Red Sox because that means JD Martinez If he if the national league ads in that DH roll JD Martinez Opt out because there's going to be now an extra gaggle of teams that are going to need a d h and a lot of them don't have a guy like JD Martinez just waiting there in the rafters. So they're going to go after him and throw him. There is a growing up. So it's good for the Red Sox right now that the NL does not have that or at least in the long term and out doesn't have that but going back to my point about these guys who are still on the team and what it means. I think the Red Sox, I think that signifies that the Red Sox know that they are not entering a full-blown rebuild like a couple of years ago..

"He rips apart Farm systems poured Detroit is still a Barren Wasteland up there still a Barren Wasteland and this is what was going to happen. And I mean, so you brought up. In fact, there's one guy who I I worry cuz he's always been good but not great. But he's having a really good season this year and he's making a splash on social media and I'm a fan of him because he talks a lot of crap, but I am genuinely concerned that the Red Sox are going to go out this offseason and throw in overpriced amount of money at Trevor Bauer. I don't I don't think he's going to keep up what he's been doing. Yeah, I don't love Trevor Bauer. But again, you look around you're like, okay. Well if you don't look Trevor Bauer, what do you want? What do you want to do what he wants to guess you do it. Do you want him to go get three more Martine Perez's you know what? I mean? Don't get a guy who's going to have any outray between 5 and 6 maybe win 10 games in a regular thousand. Do you want three of those guys order to have something like Trevor Bauer who is a quality picture. He's also, you know throwing media standpoint. He's going to mix it up so he's good for business in that regard as well, you know, oh it into it for sure. Yeah, you know, so so why not I don't you love that idea. But sometimes you have to look around and say well it's the best available maybe go ahead and sign them. I'm not totally against it. Right and and especially when you look at the offense as a whole cuz and we talked about at the start of Season. Okay, if there's going to be one if the Red Sox are going to win games cuz it's 60 Game season Anything Can Happen. The Reds win games going to have be like thirteen to 2:13 to 12. The pitching isn't good. But the offense is really good really hasn't panned out that way especially when you have guys like Andrew benintendi who just aren't producing that the way that even close to what you anticipated the way that they would produce so the offense I don't think you have to do too too much too..

"And so maybe that was the mistake by bloom in the Red Sox was giving me a million dollar contract to Bradley to begin with and now you're kind of stuck with that. I mean if they had traded Bradley and eovaldi that's 27 million off the books Mookie Betts. Twenty-seven million this year, so it's not that simple, but yep. Do wonder if that was a mistake and the other trades makes sense? I mean Brandon workman's a pending free agent you get something for him Kevin flowers pending free-agent. You get something from you know, he temporary had another year left of a like that returned. They packaged him with workmen. That's always smart to do Moreland has a three million dollar option for next year. So you like that but he's getting older and he's going to be thirty-six next year. He's got a lot of injury problems. You got them all back in Michael shave. It's the place and first base you want to see what they can do. They all the moves to be made sense. There is no movement was like, oh my God, what a brilliant move. The only question will one was not trading Bradley. But if you can't if can't get anything for him. So I got the Red Sox the Red Sox did find one. They didn't make and here's where baseball just plays with our emotions. I mean if I were to tell you, hey, the Red Sox did not sign an old guy who was three four Thirty this year you'd say big deal. Of course, they didn't but then I say that guy's fault, right and everybody kind of loses their mind. Hey, you could have bought black holes back and may God. Old City happy for a month blah blah blah. I'm glad block got a job. I really am as you know, he's such a great guy but no surprise the Red Sox just throw on the line, right? Yeah, you know, I was a little surprised they need players. They knew they were going to be making trades. Why not bring it back. It's like, you know, absolutely what's the point in keeping players who are not going to be free agents. Anyways when you are not going to make the playoffs so essentially why keep Bradley and he said it's important to have a positive environment here to have a club house that breeds winning that game he seems to really like Jackie and contributes to that even if Jackie's going to be a free agent just having him here for another month can be helpful to the overall atmosphere on the right side. Don't tell me having Brockville here for another month. When I took the same exact thing and wouldn't have cost them anything. He was released. It could have been a very easy move for them. I believe he passed through waivers and was just straight-up release and then signed by the national so Thursday. It seemed like an easy move that they could have made and didn't and I do Wonder because Bloom shows essentially chose Jose Peraza over Rock bolt in the off-season. We see this all the time. There's a lot of stubbornness with general managers in baseball when they when they make decisions. They want to stick to them and ride out and they don't want to ever admit that they screwed up and I think you bring it back. There is a could be a sense of who well terrazza didn't really pan out. You know, should we have kept hold? I don't know. I wonder about that. So here's what I'm wondering now, too. I was talking earlier about the rampant anonymity that suddenly has taken hold with the Red Sox..

"I don't know if Bobby dalbec is going to really be something speaking of big hulking guys who can hit him out on top of the monster but home bring in your first Big League game little tip of the hat to Daniel Nava her Kevin Youkilis or the great Sam and who by the way, I saw it as a Rochester Red Wing not too. Well. Actually it was a long time ago. I was going to say not too long ago, but we're talking about the freaking 1980s now, I think Jason mastrodonato of the herald also from Rochester, he does not remember Sam Horn because I'm old and he's not old but I once saw him against the Tidewater Tides with a 5 home run a doubleheader. It was just a remarkable thing to behold. I mean you guys know about Sam Horn better than I do. But other first home run games for the Red Sox not too many of them. Danny Shafer had one back in eighty-seven only nine ever. But anyway dalbec had one on a total golf shot just a little slice down the right-field line just inside the pesky pole. Nobody knew it was gone. It a 48-month Degree launch angle meaning just a towering pop up is all this was but that was a good day. Sunday was a good day. Kevin plawecki had never been on the field for a Red Sox win Owen eleven when he played and that's not fair. If you've actually had a pretty good year but Red Sox actually won the weekend series their unbeaten in their last 4 Series heading into what they've got with Atlanta right now and look at thier one and twelve against the Yankees and the Rays is here, but they got a winning record against everybody else. That's one way to to put that if we want to shine a nice light on it but back to dalbec I hope he's something the guy that comes to mind for me since I'm still dating myself and telling you how old I am or with every one of these Sam Horn Recollections. You guys remember creating gubanich. That's who that guy reminds me of the he was a big strong kind of Catcher slash infielder type late 1990s and went to Mike piazza's High School, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. And he was supposed to be something never was he had a home run maybe two or three games into his career. I'm looking it up right now. Hang on. Oh, yeah, here it is. This is an amazing game the Red Sox and 99th, which is such a fun team top to bottom. I know I'm viewing all over the place here, but the 1999 team think about it. I mean, it had Pedro's twenty three and four with a 2.07 313 Girl Scouts, which is still a record for the Red Sox. No more want to batting title hitting 357. You have the All-Star game at Fenway. David came up and got big hits Mike Stanley had a great year. They were down to nothing and it's just 5 in the playoffs outscored Cleveland 32 to 10:00 from that point on their rotation other than Pedro was an absolute hot mess who was Pat Rapp Mark Portugal. Jinho Cho San in Rose Wakefield was a closer perhaps the season That season was nuts. So the Creighton bubonic game the Red Sox behind a gubanich homerun took a seven. Nothing lead in Oakland, New Jersey. Early in the year and then they gave it all away..

Let's face it everybody an absolutely strange nine weeks. That's all this is. It's basically a nine week season. And I, it's a race to see not only who can get to that thirty six wind total like we discussed, but who can stay sane who can do the little things necessary to just kinda tune out the drumbeat of no drumbeat. There's not going to be real fans there. There's going to be fan noise, but was the psychology of that can be all about. There's still so much that a lot of people I mean. Certainly the players have to to get to here and think of this like an NFL season this year if you start out twelve eighteen. Dusty equivalent to being three and five if you're the Patriots and As. We know unless NFL team goes seven and one down the stretch after three and five. They are cooked at that point. So getting out to eastern start and having a lot of orioles on the early schedule here, that should help, but They cannot stumble like they did last year. Remember that terrible open road trip. That was my introduction of the Red Sox by the way. Hi, I'm your new announcer with Joe Castiglione? Oh, they're gonNA start to and eight I hate this guy and just to leave you with this. I know that drill pretty well. Because my one year with the cubs, they started out owen fourteen and everybody blamed the new guy. Anyway hope you've enjoyed this little run through the.

"So I know I'm no expert, but here's what I'm thinking as everything kicks off Friday night. Here's what I think is going to be. Red Sox lineup and we'll break down kind of guy by guy. Just I'm GonNa just talk extemporaneously about each one in left field number sixteen Andrew Benintendi. It was supposed to be the leadoff man last year. It never really took, but here we go again, and he never turned the corner at all last year I mean it every step very much like the entire club. He was grinding, trying to figure it out, but he was missing a lot of pitches. strikeouts last year. Obviously, that must improve third base number eleven game program Rafael, Devers boy where to restart more line drives off bad than anybody else in baseball last year, two hundred and thirty five of them say the Poindexter, with the slide rules the the most extra base hits in a season by red sox player ever last year Rafael Devers had ninety Ted Williams. Never had more than eighty six did that in his famous nineteen thirty nine season when he was just coming on. Nomar Garciaparra Ninety seven at eighty-five Ted Williams get the list in nineteen forty. mookie made the list not in two thousand eighteen, but in two thousand sixteen was seventy eight divers had ninety. Last year and some of the best hands in all of baseball, though as able to respond to pitches, the defense certainly has gotten much better. He really turned the corner after that costly ninth-inning error in Chicago early May last year. He talked to Adrian Beltre on the phone and somehow got his mind, right. Guy had no home runs three runs batted in his first twenty four games last year and ended up where he ended up all right batting third your shortstop number two. Zander Bogart's who actually finished last in some of the defensive metrics among big league shortstops last year, but is blossomed in one of the best players offensively in the game. He was on base more than two hundred and fifty times last year, fifty, two thirty three home runs seems like he's absorbed the same lesson. His Jose Altuve The walks have almost doubled the last four years now he's doing major major damage, and we talk about finding another face of the Red Sox and Boston sports, really because Brady's not here Gronk, snotty or Cetera et Cetera. Then Zander Bogart's is the guy that's already got a couple world series titles on his resume, and there's the personality because the type of guy that people should be drawn to. Your cleanup man. You're D. H. Number Twenty eight Jd. Martinez going to get back to the production of twenty eighteen. He always mashes lefties. He's going to do that again. At four four against lefties last year, two thousand eighteen was three thirty batting, average, forty three Homerun, hundred and thirty run batted in season. I mean obviously that's a lot to ask for even pro-rated, but I'm fascinated by JD Martinez who by the way still a has no walk off home runs. Can we get one of those? Charlie Culbertson has four. Of Twenty three total home and his career Martinez is no walk off on two hundred and thirty one home runs, but after he washed out with the Astros in two thousand thirteen. A great story because it was sending a lot of time in the trainer's room had bad wrist the ESPN feed..

Of the construction hiatus and rate of construction will be, and so you don't know yet when we're talking about time wise for the sunset on Pawsox baseball and the sunrise blue SOx baseball that we still have to see. On Baseball and by the way I can only imagine. The merchandise is already flying off the shelves internationally. Really, banding of there's Logo. All of the time of the heart I mean it's just fantastic so I know you have to ten percent. We have everything in the time to read I, mean it's almost makes it sound like we're insensitive. If we get excited about anything, but if you close your eyes and you know, here's a vaccine and ballpark is open. Give me a little taste of what you envision. A summer night in Worcester to be. Well. It has been A..
"sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"You look up tainted means that there's something sticking to it. Something in there is something there so. Let's be be grownups about it recognized that there was an issue there, and that's where we are. I think that's very well sad and you know if you go inside the numbers. Maybe it's coincidence, maybe not, but for what it's worth. The team Oh. PS with runners in scoring position in eighteen was eight seventy two when they had nobody on, it was about seven fifty, so whatever they were doing. It worked but but all in all I. is it fair to say? The socks skated a little bit I mean? If. They really didn't dive dear nearly as deep as the Aska was did it makes sense. Punishment was far less other than a video replay guy taking the fall Cora Front office. Everyone else comes off pretty clean here. Yeah and one of the things I've learned in which reading over the years is that? You can rip the team. If I. Read a call saying. Oh, the red sox in this the Red Sox, that and boo the Red Sox, and how dare they? I can walk into the clubhouse the next day and no one's going to bat an eyelash. When you, would you aim your your poison pen if you will? At individual players, coaches and In front office types, and so forth when out now it's the individual that's being called to the carpet, and that's when you walk in there the next day and you've got that player will come running up to you, Hey! Tom How dare you so forth, So with that in mind with that philosophy mine, of course, they skated. Because it's if you Google Boston Red Sox while you're going to get that stop, but you google individual players. They're not part of it. And so they can sleep well at night. Knowing that their individual reputations have not been a questioned. And, so if you look at it that way, yes, of course, they skate. You know I look back I. Guess was twelve years ago when the US housing market crashed, and how not a single top executives at any of the major banks went to jail, one loan banker somewhere that I think got thirty months because you can seal the tiny fraction of his company's losses, but that's kind of the comparison. Some people are making your the JT. Watkins is this one lone banker, and if you're to believe Major League, baseball, he acted alone in decoding and relaying signals and Dave Dombrowski didn't know John Henry didn't know the players didn't know, so. Let me have you put your intrepid journalist hat on again. Is that possible I mean it? Could that really be true? Could. It be true that it was Watkins alone doing all this question. Yeah, we'll know it's silly. Because he. He doesn't have that kind of power. he? He didn't move the video replay room to right behind the DUGOUT. And he didn't on his own and I don't know him well. I had a pleasant five minute conversation with him in Fort Myers back in February, walking down a hallway together and We have a couple mutual friends so when I say I know him, I I have a vague familiarity with him and nicest thing I can say he's a very pleasant young man. that doesn't mean I've done a you know exhausted investigation into the way he does his job. But. I find it hard to believe that this person. Who hopes to grow and prosper and have a career in baseball would all by himself. Gather this information and put it under. The is in front of the eyes of Big League ballplayers That just doesn't make sense to me I think that's that's being very naive..
"sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"Journal is going to join us in just a little bit. We're going to talk our way through the very latest around baseball. A little bit about the. Red Sox obviously best we can. Certainly talk about. If there's going to be baseball if there's the possibility of the red sox now being in this weird division with a bunch of great teams, if that happens, that could certainly put a little dark spot on the outside chances that they were in the beginning to make a playoff run in twenty twenty, but isn't going to be a twenty twenty We're GONNA. Get to that. That's going to be pretty much most of our conversation here today I, sure hope there's a two thousand twenty baseball season. I know you guys do, too because they for no other reason, the scarier and more uncertain things seem in our day to day. Lives think the more important it gets to have an anchor, and for so many people. Baseball is at anchor in their day to day lives sports and music are really the to Universals, and there are people out there. That aren't necessarily sports, fans or wondering. What's the big deal that there's no baseball? Baseball for a while and I always say imagine in an entire month, maybe several more with a moratorium on music. If you're stressed, you can't listen to your favorite song. There's nothing on in the background. Is he working your kitchen that concert? You were really looking forward to for months will now never happen and that's kind of how lonely it's been for baseball fans, and that's why it's so important to get back to them just as soon as it's safe, and that is the key word to me. I hope it is two guys to safe. Can the game be played without fans as question. We're hearing a lot right now, and it may have to be for a while to keep everyone safe. Lots of spring training. Games are played in front of very few fans, and there are be games on backfield's where there are no fans, so this is not unprecedented in any way. And in a strange way I keep thinking. Maybe baseball can model for every sport and every social event in the country. How to execute this slow roll back to normal. Keep it safe. Make some adjustments for now as need be. Keep looking forward to when things get back to how we've. Known them is the Arizona plan real or the Arizona Florida plan, real I get that one a lot too and I would say yes, and no, because until testing is scaled and accessible to everyone say very bad look to test only ballplayers in a bubble I think everyone agrees going forward. Even talking about all this, assuming the testing across the nation will be a reality before too long. I mean I don't mean to turn this into politics, but I I can't believe that's not the number one thing that's. been tried over the last several weeks..
