Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical

U.K. Grants Emergency Authorization For Covid-19 Vaccine
"As we told you earlier. Britain is the first nation in the west to grant emergency use authorization for a covid nineteen vaccine ahead of the us and the eu clearing a shot jointly developed by pfizer the us and biontech of germany. It's expected to be distributed in limited numbers within days. The decision is of interest far beyond its borders. Let's bring in london based reporter. Jenny strasbourg jenny. Good morning good morning. Thank you mark jennings. Let's break down the news itself. What does authorization by the uk. Government mean and. How does this compare to. It's currently happening in the united states so the uk and it's pretty brexit transition period has taken the power it has to basically say look. We authorize this for emergency use. There's a pandemic we don't need to wait for the eu medicines regulator. We're going to do this ourselves. And we're not gonna wait for the european regulators to decide so this is not going to be the last authorization we're going to hear about. We're likely there's a lot happening in the in the us. With the fda in europe with the european medicines agency that oversees similar authorizations of medicines across europe. They've got hearings public hearings in the us and in europe coming up in december to discuss this and we could see more of these such decisions before the end of the year with that said distribution will begin immediately correct. The uk government is saying this morning that they expect to start putting shots in arms next week and so the uk has prioritised people. You know this is a bit morbid. But it make sense. According to essentially their vulnerability to dying so they've said look people in care homes the people who care for them who also could carry the virus to the folks in care homes. They'll be first and then you've got frontline. Healthcare workers the nhl of the uk. A the people who are caring for people on hospitals and then people over eighty nine groups that the work through. And you know there's only going to be so much vaccine to go around but they are going to move. You can be sure that the uk will move as quickly as possible. Will this decision influence or even perhaps speed up the process in the united states. You know our headline is uk. I right this is the first time. A western nation has granted emergency use. The uk government is saying eight hundred. Thousand shots will start rolling out next week. There's going to be major coverage of people in uk care homes and you know the workers caring for people the most vulnerable getting shots. You can imagine that's going to have an impact on a world devastated by this pandemic but you know in fairness like the regulators in the us and in europe have been moving very quickly. Like i don't want to portray this as like a competition among regulators. I think we need to keep in mind that they're all trying to uphold the standards of safety. Make sure this vaccine is effective. Make sure that manufacturing is up to quality standards and keep in mind. There's different manufacturing happening around the world. It's not a simple thing to make. A messenger are a vaccine. It's actually quite difficult task. And finally jenny. You've covered a lot of this from the start. What are the unknowns. What are the questions that you're still asking. You know how long until vaccines will will bring some greater sense of normalcy to our world and you know this is just the start. I think people need to keep in mind that we're not gonna just immediately stop wearing masks and needing to distance needing to take care of each other. This is just the start of a long process. The you know there are a lot of questions about like how long immunity lasts and how long the impact on the human immune system lasts from a vaccine. I think all of us wanna know the whole herd immunity. Will this help us be able to hug each other. What mean that people can see their loved. Ones can get on planes. Feel a little safer. It's gonna take time and also frankly developing nations and poor countries. I mean this. This is a complicated vaccine to store it. Long periods of time the requires very cold temperatures. You know the hope is that there won't be a division between rich and poor countries and that we can take care of the entire world and not just the was countries
The History Of Martin Micronius
"On this episode, five minutes in Church history. We are returning to the reformation and talking about a reformer that you might have never heard of before Martin Micronesia's he was born in fifteen, twenty, three engagement and Flanders when I hear the word gant or the place can't always think of the altarpiece that beautiful painting. So Martin Mike Kronius is Dutch. It appears that he was a medical doctor and studied medicine, and there's even testimony that he published medical works. But then he got intrigued by the reformation and became a reformer he studied at Basel at Strasbourg, and then in fifteen forty nine, he went to London there in London he became associated with John Alaska this was the Polish reformer who also ended up in London And he and Martin my Kronius and a few others were intent on establishing a little Geneva in London. This would be a place for a European reformers to be in. London, they were not Lutherans. Anglicans they were reformed and they were trying to carve out a place for themselves. Well, he lasco published a few works to help for the liturgy and in the work by Martin. Is was published in London in fifteen, fifty four. He says this on the Ministry of the word. No church gathering is ever held among us in which the church is not taught to some extent from God's word in order for it to be edified, admonished and comforted, and for very good reasons, the scriptures are not expounded in sermons on is located parentheses as in the practice among the papists. Instead we take some book of the Bible either from the old or the New Testament, and we expound it from the beginning to the end in all sermons. We successfully read from this book as much as can be edifying, -Ly and properly expounded and explained within one hour. If necessary the ministers of the word are also admonished not to go too much beyond the scope of their text in their preaching rather they should as much as possible take all their teaching admonishment exhortation rebuke in comfort from the present text. So there you have it, you stick with the text, but you also see that this sermon was an hour long. So these Dutch as we know are tough the service that he also was trying to get established. There at this church in London, we not only have the sermon. In fact, it would start off with a prayer prayer for elimination. Then there'd be the Lord's prayer. Then they'd read a psalm. Then they'd read a scripture that the sermon was from and then you'd have the sermon the hour long sermon. Then they would pray for strength and by that, they mean to live out the meaning of that sermon and to live out the application of that sermon. then. They would read the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments. Yes. Every Sunday reading through the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a brief admonishment related to the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a confession of sin than there would be a prayer of forgiveness and then there would be a warning to the impertinent those that were not willing to confess their sins. Then, they'd recite the apostles creed than there would be prayers for intercession of the congregation than the Lord's prayer. Then another psalm, then a- benediction and that was the service that Martin my Kronius was trying to establish there in. London. Well, all of these efforts came to a halt when Edward the six died and he was replaced by his half sister. Mary. And you know this is the time of Marian exiles and One of those exiles was Martin my Kronius he ended up in Norton in Germany, which is on the North Sea. while. He was there. He held some debates with Meno Simon's yes of the Mennonites and he also published his catechism in fifteen, fifty five in Dutch and it was there in Norton that he died fifteen, fifty nine well, that is Martin, my Kronius, the Dutch reformer in London.

Researchers Throw Cold Water on the Panic Around COVID-19’s Alleged Short-Lived Immunity
"There was a study put out by King's College in London a few weeks ago, which found that covid nineteen antibodies in people who had been infected largely disappeared after two months. The headlines about covid nineteen immunity being temporary were all over the place with more than a few implying that this means will never have a truly effective vaccine and never truly defeat the coronavirus. It's all terrifying so I wanted to share some insight from Derek. Thompson over at the Atlantic spoke with a number of experts to get a deeper understanding of the study and inject some good news into all of the headline fearmongering. Now I'm not going to tell you that. The study was totally wrong and that we're all going to be completely fine nothing about covid nineteen is completely good news, but as Shane Crotty of urologist at the La Hoya Institute for -Nology told the Atlantic actually looking at the data. I feel okay about it. Quoting further from the Atlantic acquired immunity is. Memory when our bodies fight off infection, we want our immune systems to remember how to defeat it again like a person who, after solving a big jigsaw puzzle recognizes and remembers how to set the pieces the next time. The whole point of vaccination is to teach the immune system those same puzzle solving lessons without exposing it to the full virus. This is why Casey L. study initially seemed so dreadful it. It found that the number of certain active antibodies called neutralizing antibodies declined significantly between tests especially in patients with mild or no symptoms. Antibody levels are one proxy for the Immune System's memory. If they plunged quickly, that might mean that our immune system can't remember how to solve covid nineteen for more than a few months at a time do minus to start from square one with each new exposure end quotes. Now while those findings from the King's college study are definitely concerning, there are three main reasons to be skeptical about the study and therefore hopeful for futures. I, the study only looked at one part of our immune system, our vast mysterious immune system about which there remain many unknowns quoting again when a new pathogen enters, the body are adaptive immune system calls up a team of BCL's with produce antibodies and t cells to over simplify the B. Cells antibodies intercept and bind to invading molecules and the killer t cells seek and destroy infected cells, Evaluating Immune Response Without A. T cells is like inventory, national air force, but leaving out the bomber jets, and in the case of covid nineteen, those bomber jets could make the biggest difference. A growing collection of evidence suggests that t cells provide the strongest and longest lasting immunity cove in nineteen, but this study didn't measure them at all end quote, further study and a Francis Strasbourg university hospital found that patients recovering from covid nineteen had strong t cell responses, despite not having any detectable antibodies. Now second decline in antibodies that unusual Shane Crotty the Varela gist from the Loy. Institute for Immunology. said quote it unusual to have feeding antibody response after several months the off. Isn't that surprising when you look at something like the smallpox vaccine easy the antibody responses down about seventy five percent after six months, but that's a vaccine that works for decades. We need a study like this to look at Cova patients six months after infection to really know what we're dealing with and quote. And third, and finally it's possible that even these low levels of antibodies could trigger a larger immune response in the future like if the individual is exposed to SARS Cov to again, this goes back to the immunological memory. It's like the memories and that strong when it's not confronted, but win the trigger of the virus returns, so does the memory. Even beyond the critiques of this one study that caused so much panic in the news, there remain many other reasons to be hopeful. Vaccine Research continues to steamroll along at an unprecedented pace. Several studies on monkeys have shown strong long lasting immune response and a new study shows that patients who recovered from SARS East Asia indeed have long lasting t cell immunity. Plus Journalists Noah. Smith shared on twitter, pointing to research from immunologist professor. Akiko, it was sake. This news about antibodies doesn't necessarily mean the vaccine would be ineffective because quoting Sake, vaccines can elicit stronger immune response than natural. Those covid nineteen vaccines can and should induce more robust and durable protection than natural infection end quote. As no Smith sums it all up quote. One antimony bunnies aren't the only thing that can give you. Immunity to your body can probably remember how to make new antibodies and three vaccines can potentially give you longer lasting immunity than you'd get from actually getting covid end quote.
Big East Cancels Non-Conference Games For Fall Sports
"Will be different in Georgetown and non existent Howard this year, the Big East, announcing that fall sports will only play conference games in 2020 and the MEAC has cancelled all fall sports Baseball. The Nationals Post one of the better starting rotations in the majors, and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Last night when Stephen Strasbourg pitched the interest Squad game, Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Anibal Sanchez got together in a socially distant wayto watch. Manager Davey Martinez. Those guys, they're all pretty close, you know, starting pitchers, so every time Strasbourg Max throws our orbit, essentially, those guys are going to sit up there and watch each other pitch.

Ligue 1 season cancelled: French government announce no football until September
"Was meeting today talking about when football would resume the government making the announcement as we welcome in Franklin Franklin saying that there will be no football bit behind closed doors or anything until September. This is a big surprise is an ant. It is done. It is and We are shocked about that decision because supposedly the government took the decision on its own. Meaning that Didn't talk to the bottom of the League. Want to the twenty chairman of The League one and took this season where they could have been Do you know what time where you can think about. How the the the virus and all the pandemic goes on and maybe a little bit later in June or end of June the championship in Phoenix. This season the to the decision. It's surprising because now we don't know what's going to happen was going to be champion. Who's going to be qualified for? The Champions League was going to be relegated. Who's going to be promoted those questions? We don't have answers. We have to wait for for the now. The board of the League one to decide whether they're going to stop at the day twenty eight of the day twenty seven because he didn't play against Strasbourg last day or maybe just the the first eighteen games of the season and he didn't come the return games so we don't have all in tears and again. We're very surprised because because it's going to be very hard for some clubs I think about Amir was nineteen now with only three or four points behind Neem and the and could have hoped for a continuation of the championship and be saved. Because you have thirty points in Games in game. So it's it's a hard decision that the government took socially as well because we know the people in France love football and want to see football. But they're not going to see football and soccer before September Frank. A lot of people asked me to ask you what's going to happen with the champion sleep. Espn Leon of course. Still involved the plan from UEFA from what we've discussed and what we understand is that it could be played over that twenty day period in August. If you can have football in France. What's going to happen? It's going to be complicated for for man. A friend of mine took to necessarily Halley party chairman. Who say that. He's going to follow what the government says but he's GonNa fall all sold. What the Earth you f says and meaning that the if the Champions League is held in July August and they have to finish it they're going to finish it. They're going to go abroad to play. Some maybe friendly games to prepare all the game they have to play in the Champions League starting from the quarterfinal because they got qualified against Gort shut moon and they WANNA finish it. It's a big opportunity for percents. I'm going to be a champion of the Champions League this season but if they don't play the regular season of the League one I don't know how it can be fit and competitive in the league
"strasbourg" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Why you know you look at Strasbourg you look at gong teachers are the changes in the difference maker with these guys that's a huge difference maker for you know beat because when you look at how you can attack a hitter and going back to location changes speeds movement in the last three if you can change the the locator you're coming hitting is timing pitching is sawing off respond until mediators here hitters Michael I got you got to get his foot down on time well maybe you need to get it up sooner this yeah he didn't down late in my opinion solution the baby get up a little he gets to be get up earlier in the year throwing changeups he's more vulnerable to something off speed you know so that whole back and forth in reply to one for me I think that's fans are are very interested in this and obviously wants it and and when if baseball comes back there's going to be a lot of focus on it with D. as you know it if you had a chance to talk with D. as you know assess D. as would you be confident that he could turn things around this year or you know or would you be less confident looking at his deliveries we can't accept such well in my opinion look at last year you definitely need to maybe make an adjustment with his delivery and so I mean it is the ideal model that we tried to follow it if you can get a biomechanical analysis of the picture prior to spring training every year not now you have you know you you have a yeah and if you can if you have the technology which I think something's do now or you might be able to get one or two analysis during the course of the year you just just to make sure that you know everything is the way that you wanted to be plus the fact I think that I think New York was a factor for him I think that was a big factor not everybody can play in New York they can't hear not everybody can handle that kind of scrutiny and you know have a rough game and you know how to turn on the radio on here you guys you know talk about how bad they were the night before right and you know which is that's that's part of New York you know we all we all get it if you can do that's why thanks a lot to say new New York do any place yeah it is and I think the other big thing would be as effective he really struggled with the ball the ball was really understated last year and I don't think people really didn't want to talk about a lock if you want to just complain about it there's not a good look digitally but I can tell you right now pitchers really struggle with dealing with the ball consistently rejected because huge thing in everybody's got different ways and different things that they can use to you know to get a good feel for the ball and and I think also the fact that you know I don't think pitchers were used in the ball being used like it was last year you know I mean it was obvious that balls are flying further than they ever have the user making the bonds for play there's a triple a home run numbers were staggering yeah yeah I mean so you can say whatever you want about the ball all did just take a look at what happened do you think the all the same players are involved we think the same baseball further you know and it'll be interesting to see what the walls like this year and nobody really talked about all spring I was really curious about that Eric we can't thank you enough thanks sure your perspective cut out some time stay safe you in the family and and we appreciate it yep all players go out to everybody do the right thing do the right thing for everybody else's needs my message to everyone thanks for being on you got a college right thank you Rick Preciado a safer yeah stay home basically that's what they can do right by everybody else interesting comments we talked about you know and and and Maggie kind of got into a you know a little bit discussion about you know verbiage but in essence Noah Syndergaard does you know you want to talk about whether it be changing your style or adjusting that Syndergaard when he does come back needs to adjust what he does as a pitcher they are the comments in the in the thoughts repeaters yeah I know what I get it listed he is studying this and he is a student of all of this on such a micro level that gets the difference between a change and it just made it for him is massive the one for me talking about it not as much but I get his point right now he doesn't need wholesale changes but he does need adjustments and you know the one thing about Noah Syndergaard as big of a fan is of his as I am it used to bother me when he used to try to for a hundred spring training it was like dude what are you doing now why do we need to have the user could say what he trying to win stuffed animals I mean at this point it's like they don't just do it for the flash you know let's save all that for the regular season but he might have to you know finally learned really how to pitch and it's not just going to be getting getting past you know trying to blow guys away at a hundred and one it's going to have to be a little bit of adjustment there but I I really appreciate Rick's approach you know I did my job and he we came on both sides of our arguments on potential ride he loves Syndergaard as a prospect right but more the mental game anybody else so we always today baggy isn't that a happy ending the fans as well eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six the Mets conversation is going to continue all of this is a segment that we had planned long before we heard anything about Noah Syndergaard injury but Bobby Jones is gonna join us we're gonna dive back in a little of that's history and talk with the Mets righty that's the one we're talking to the right E. from California Twitter last night really which Bobby sock it to we're not going to the writing from California about the Bobby Jones from Jersey but we will do that next looking forward to talking with him don't go anywhere it's a very busy Wednesday show glad you're along for the ride of a long with along for the ride with us did I get that right there you go great jump on board lucid Maggie the transport out of the station don't wait we're back in a bit let's face it credit cards are pretty much a necessity new tires for the car here's my card I take my daughter to college friends out for sushi here's my card and most of us just accept.
5 Reformers on the Psalms
"This episode. Let's explore five reformers on the soames will start and end with very familiar reformers and in between who knows. Maybe we'll talk about someone you don't know I is. Martin Luther Luther like all of these reformers loved the psalms. Luther set up habit of reading the psalms through in about three weeks and that was a habit. He kept up all of his adult life early on in his career. As a reformer he published his work on the psalms in fifteen eighteen and again in fifteen nineteen and that set a trajectory for the reformers to publish commentaries on the Psalms. So first pride of place goes to Martin. Luther next up is Lutheran Pastor Yohannes Buchen Haagen in fifteen twenty four. He published a Latin commentary on the Psalms. This was a massive work and set the stage for many of the commentaries. That would follow in fact. It was so influential in its Latin texts. That a publisher convinced. Martin Boozer and now. Here's our third reformer on the psalms convinced Martin Bucer to translate this Latin commentary into the German and he did well before we leave. Bougie Haugen talk about boots. Or however let's hear what Bogin Haagen has to say about just psalm one he says therefore in this psalm you have all of the scope of all of holy scripture. He goes on to say every song is about Christ and ultimately every song has something to say directly to the church. Well that's Bougie Haagen as we already mentioned boots are translated. Buchen Huggins commentary into the German. Fifteen twenty five. There's an old Latin expression translator trader. And that's exactly what Buchen Huggins thought of Martin bucer translation. It was not just a translation he he took many liberties and an essence was publishing his own commentary. Well that led to boots or publishing was in fact his own original commentary in fifteen twenty nine and curiously. He published it in Latin. It was a huge volume but despite its heft it went through five editions in the Latin. It went through two editions in French and it even made it into the English. So influential was bouterse commentary on the Psalms that it actually impacted the French Salter and the English psalter which then went into the English Bible. Curiously enough boots are published it under a false name presenting himself as a French humanist scholar from Leon well harassment's great human scholar. Erasmus discovered. It was actually bucer and the JIG was up. Well that's three out of four next comes. A reformer you might not have heard before we'll famous Musculus. He was a reformer and scholastic tradition. He was a benedictine monk in fifteen eighteen reading luther. He was converted. He then went to Strasbourg. Studied under Martin boots or he was dispatched to Augsburg. He wrote many books. Among his books are eight commentaries on the Old Testament including his commentary on the Psalms Musculus. Well that leads us to our fifth and final reformer that is Calvin. He published his commentary on the Psalms in fifteen fifty seven and among other things. He says in his preface to the psalms. He extols the virtues of the psalms. Here's what Calvin has to say. There is no other book in which there is to be found more express and magnificent commendations both of the unparalleled liberality of God towards his church and of all of God's Works. There is no other book in which there is recorded so many deliverance -is nor one in which the evidences and experiences of the fatherly providence and solicitude which God exercises towards us are celebrated with such splendor of diction and yet with strict adherence to truth short. There is no other book in which we are more perfectly taught the right manner of praising God. Well that's Calvin one of five reformers on the

Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's
Travel to the Alsace Region of France
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Brady read from a world vegan TRAVEL DOT com. Who has come to talk to us about the all sauce Brady? Welcome to the show It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you so much for having me and I've already learned something because I was the first thing I came out of my mouth when we started talking. I was saying it wrong about who you want to put it on a map force. Yeah absolutely so the else. Region of France is in the east of France its shares but if a border with Switzerland and also Germany. So it's really in the east central part of France and there's some things that are unusual about this area which will get into. But why should someone go to the all Saas Festival frats just generally speaking is of course a very very popular destination? One of the reasons why. I think France is so appealing. Is that each of the regions So different and also is particularly interesting. In my opinion for a number of reasons so festival is a little bit of like a cultural exception to France and what I mean by that is had a huge influence from Germany over its history and indeed. Alsace has actually been part of Germany and part of France and has it flopped many times over the past hundred years and I believe that before the first world war it was part of Germany for a while and then it went back to France after nine. One thousand nine hundred eighteen when lost the war and then of course it went back to Germany during the Second World War and then went back to France after the war ended so because of this it has a huge amount of German influence in terms of the architect jar in terms of some of the cultural aspects. It even has its own dialect. Which maybe isn't so surprising because actually have quite a number of dialects there but Alsatian is actually quite similar to Swiss German. Actually and actually little trivia there. The USA foundation was actually banned in nineteen forty five however raising white was banned was because they didn't France after the war they didn't want any German influenced in the languages. I believe and when they realized that this was probably wasn't a good idea to ban language like this they actually made it sort of officially able to be used again and now it's the second largest dialect in France although not so many people speak it now and it really is a mixture of all German and French so there are so many reasons but I'll start off with that. It's very different to the rest of France Sir and you mentioned that it was German at the beginning of World War One and became German after the Franco Prussian war in eighteen. Seventy that was when it was acquired by Germany which is shortly really after Germany becomes Germany at that point in terms of Germany becoming got country. So excellent will. What kind of are you going to recommend for us? Well I mean L. S. Is just such a fantastic destination? Because it's really sort of small enough that you can get a really good sense. Some feel of the place and see a wide range of different things in a short amount of time so first of all. I'd love to chat about like getting there because this is really changed in just the past few years so the first time. I went to Alsace which was twenty years ago. Now it required. I mean we know that French trains are extremely efficient but they didn't have any TGV's at all and certainly not the fast tracks until just two thousand sixteen. I think it was so it went from being able to get there in five six hours from Paris to being in central Paris to Strasbourg. Lose in just two hours so it's really really accessible now any for French people but those people coming into France or maybe even want to just add a little. Stay IN AL's Asif that bison themselves in Paris I mean you can even come down for the day. Is that a train that is running from the guard. Dalil I believe so yes yes. It is so young in there so many wonderful things that you can do like I said. There's a real mixture between towns and villages and Cities Festival Strasbourg. That is a really great place to include on your itinerary and I can certainly talk more about what travelers can experience there and this beautiful towns of Karma which is much smaller. You also have the incredible voege mountains to the west of Al Sas and then just across the border into Germany. You have the Black Forest Mountain. They're back forest mountains. Which really beautiful. You had the wine route as well which is beautiful scenic road a scenic road. Where not only do you get to stop off in villages where you can taste wines which very scenic and beautiful but also the countryside? There is just so stunning as well. But it's also really good point to jump over and get three countries for one so to speak by going over the border in Germany. There are some really lovely towns just across the border in baden-baden Okara through and also Basel in Switzerland is a really cool destination as well. So yeah that's kind of a very brief overview. Well where are we going to start? Well I guess because stop in Strasbourg if you like. It seems like a good place to start stress. Book is I think I believe. It's the tenth largest city in France and it is quite an international city because the European Parliament is there so it's love Europeans that are living there who are involved in European politics. And not only is stressful. Like the capital of Alsace and have this focus as being the head of the European Parliament. It's also extremely scenic and the Cathedral itself is absolutely studying. It's widely considered to be one of the best and it's like the Second Tulips Cathedral in the whole of France. And it's considered to be just an incredible example of romanesque architecture and Lepetit class which is like a little region very small area in the center of Strasbourg is actually UNESCO. World Heritage as France has so many UNESCO heritage sites lepetit. Floss is is one of them and that's really famous because it has some beautiful half Timoteo houses and beautiful little couple straits. There's a little sort of canal system that runs through it and you can take a little boat and go through the Loxton and get a bit of a tool there and of course it's particularly magical like the rest of us is at Christmas Time. Where of course you have all of the Christmas markets and there's also the Palais COA which is a beautiful building and real sort of palace kind of setup and has a lot of museums in. That's so stressful is a definite must see. I would definitely recommend heading there for at least a day so if you would just going to stay in the town of stressful then. I think it is absolutely worthwhile and it's something that we do when we are there is too. You can of course find a free walking tour and these are very very popular in France. We have a guide that we use and she's absolutely fantastic with any tool off. The town is going to be so helpful because there is just so much hidden in plain view that you just would not do unless you had somebody explaining to you and professional guides just this incredible source of information in this area
PSG-Strasbourg Ligue 1 match is latest victim of coronavirus
"The PS cheap Russia Dortmund match. Remember Dortmund with a two one lead in the first leg going into that second leg in Paris. Who has the advantage going into this game? Given that there will be no home support. I have to imagine as producer. Dorman not only do they have the advantage and the score but now they're going to play a game. That is not really an away game. It's more of a neutral site game if you will because you don't have the environment of the stadium now. Be G can argue so you know what this. Our stadium is a locker room. It's our surroundings but it's a really run. This is not what you're used to is not getting the feedback from your crowd from your supporters understanding that your performance urine estate and that you're going to get that immediate feedback generated from your supporters. Now you could also argue. If you WANNA make this point that you're not going to get the anxiety offense that no you have to score goals then no you're trailing in the scoreboard and that may be pushed you to do silly things out on the field because they get desperate. You'll also get desperate as well if you're up to missed four G. and Europe player that it's trying to deal with this mentally. Maybe that's the way you portrayed and you tell you you tell yourself in your mind you know what we just going to go out and play. And we're a better team. We have better players will execute on the day and regardless of what's happening or not happening to save for that matter. We're going to be able to deliver the results that we need.
What Was the First Cat in Space?
"In the nineteen fifties and sixties scientists around. The world launched a veritable menagerie of creatures into space. The idea was to gauge. The effects of spaceflight on living creatures in the hopes that humans could follow. The Soviet Union sent a stray dog from Moscow named Leica into space and subsequently the Pooch was honored as a national hero and Ham. The chimpanzee was famously buried at the International Space Hall of fame in New Mexico following his contributions to the US space program and then there was France which sent the first and so far only kept into space. She was in nobly forgotten until just a few years ago. So who was this hero? Cat Villi set was one of fourteen cats summoned to the French space program each cat electrodes implanted into their brain and all were subjected to many of the same activities included in human astronaut training. A French scientists decided to use cats as they already had a lot of neurological data on them at the conclusion of training. Philly set a petite. Tuxedo got the green light in part because she had such a calm demeanor and possibly because other cats got to Chubby during training though phillies that herself was a little bit of a Lo Fi chunk on October. Eighteenth of nineteen sixty three phillies set. Who was officially known as C? Three forty one was strapped into a Veronica rocket and blasted from Algeria. To nearly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty kilometers above the earth she experienced about five minutes of weightlessness followed by the terror of turbulent spinning descent by Parachute. Just fifteen minutes later. The flight was complete helicopter. Crew dashed to the landing site through. Open the cabin and found really set alive and well two months later scientists rewarded her heroism with Ethan Asia. They wanted to examine her body to observe the effects of spaceflight. Then feel that was all but forgotten. France was the third nation to establish a civilian space agency and likely set is often regarded as an afterthought in the feverish space race between the US and the Soviet Union so much an afterthought that in the nineteen nineties when three former French colonies celebrated her story by issuing stamps with the cats likeness. They mistakenly turned her into a him by using the wrong name. Felix but thanks to a clever kickstarter campaign. The stories finally been set straight Londoner Matt Guy Stumbled upon the tale of really set and was shocked that she wasn't already properly recognized for her accomplishments. Guy wrote on kickstarter in two thousand seventeen. She deserves a proper memorial. His online. Please netted around fifty seven thousand dollars enough to fund a five foot tall bronze statue. That's about one and a half meters. On December eighteenth of twenty nineteen. The statue was finally unveiled at the International Space University in Strasbourg France. Philly sets bronze like this purchase. A top small globe of the Earth. Her Keen Kitty is fixed upward and outward or she wants sort higher than any cat in world history.

But here's the thing the thing I'll tell you thank you. One of those stories is true and the other one is a bunch of lives and it's the job of two human children to figure out which one is which and with us to referee. Khakis is our Academy Award nominated producer for best editing of a kids game. Show podcast. No Eleven Cen Lisa. I didn't know that was your last night that I was nominated for awards congrats dude. I nominated you really. That means the world to me that I win. Well you could win for a price so let me get this straight. You're asking me to bribe you for favourable consideration for an award that you made up. That's right we'll think about it. Let's talk after the show. I'm GonNa be rich so now. What are we lying about on Wacky Khakis this week? Our theme this week is mass movements stories of a bunch of people. Doing the same thing at the same time. Lisa would you please introduce this week's contestants? Today's human child contestants archery episode and her brother Brandon from being her brother. Hey She Lebron guys welcome. We're so glad you're both here. Yeah good you guys are on the same team today and Wacky Khakis. Do you guys have good teamwork together as brother and sister now I guess. Oh No really why. Why don't you guys make a good team? We fight a lot. What do you? What do you typically fight over? Everything Sheila's at correct and mostly. Oh well so you're not fighting over the fact that you fight. Yeah you agree on that. Yeah well okay. As you heard our topic today is mass movements so Have either of you guys have participated in a mass movement of any kind now? Did either of you get on an iceberg with a penguin and then become best friends who did and travel around the world? Now that would that would qualify as a mass movement. When qualified I had it was on a question. I was wondering. Okay well look. It's time to play Wacky Khakis. If you've been with us before you'll know Deborah and Lisa will each have a minute and changed. Tell their stories. Okay Deborah Lisa. I'm thinking of a number. Whoever guesses closest gets to go first nine at least do you mean pie. The number or Pie Dessert Wahdan Ball. I see a. Can you please stop eating more monitoring your report okay? Well these I.

You're going to go first so you know. Just swallow it ready all right. Listen very carefully Shayla and Brandon Lisa. Your timer will begin now the Charleston running man and most recently the stands were all dance. Fevers that took the world by storm. The robot was one too. I mean just. We don't move like that at all but anyway you get the idea dance fever but did you know that there's an actual dance fever that got people sick from between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. It's called dancing. Mania and there are several reported cases of it throughout history. What happens is that one person starts dancing somewhere out in public no music and then one by one other people start joining them in the street. You get kind of called the original flash mob accept. These dances were completely unreversed and they went on for days weeks and even months at a time by all accounts the dancers appeared totally powerless to stop many literally danced until they dropped. Ed One famous case a woman in Strasbourg. France began dancing in the street for hours on end and within a week thirty people had joined her. The one month later there were over two hundred people dancing nonstop in the city centre town officials try different strategies to cure the dancing mania and even brought in musicians and professional dancers to perform alongside the mob. Hoping that they simply needed to dance it out not so in fact. The music only made more people join in. Historians have long struggled to explain the cause of dancing mania. Some theories include religious fervor poisoning Tarantula stress and a curse sent down from Saint Vitus. The patron saint of Dancers. None have been proven definitively. None Time Nice work. Lisa thank you thank you brandon. What did you think of? That story LIES HUNG IN CHURCHES BELIEVABLE. But it may be believable because some things that are crazy are trail interesting to let. I am telling the truth than I am trustworthy. Well before we go accusing Deborah of being a liar. Let's at least hear her story. I yeah my true story. Shayla Brandon listen up carefully. Deborah your timer will begin. Halloween is many people's favourite holiday. And for good reason. Free Candy silly costumes and let's face it. You don't really do anything in school that day. Some of US wish every day could be Halloween well in Carthage Missouri in Nineteen Ninety. Four One. Ten year old kid. Try to make it so that year for Halloween for niece lyles dressed as traffic on Aka the Yellow Ranger from the TV. Show mighty morphin power rangers who in November? I rolled around and Oliver classmates returned to school in their regular clothes. Bernice came still dressed as a power ranger when her teachers told her to change. She pointed to a clause in the school handbook. That said that students could wear whatever they liked as long as it didn't display bad words or anti-establishment propaganda on her walk home from school. She figured people would still have some leftover treats so Bernice wet trick or treating for a second time. I got more candy in one hour. Then she'd gotten the entire night before inspired by for example. Five classmates wore their Halloween costumes to school the next day and much to the dismay of school administrators twenty-seven more kids did so the next week as Bernice campaign dubbed the Halloween Forever Movement gained national attention for TV news program. Sixty minutes came to carthage to interview. The kids refused to take off their costumes. What Costume Bernice shot back at the interviewer? I really am a power ranger. You're the one who's in a costume boring reporter guide here. Having Pizza Candy in early December Carthage Middle School changed. Its official rules to ban costumes except on October. Thirty FIRST AT EACH YEAR. Bernice now has a plaque dedicated to her in the National Halloween Museum in Washington. Dc hand time. Good Work Deborah. Yes thank you Brandon Shale. What did you think of that story? Would you want to join the Halloween forever movement? Probably NOT YEAH. Because some like costumes can be uncuffed knowing I Dressed as link from Russell wild cool and the pants were so short. Cut off the circulation of my feet out. So you don't think you'd WanNa wear that to school for a whole month. No okay. It is decision time now. Our contestants must decide who story has mass appeal. Do you believe in Lisa's tale of dancing mania. The Mijo mysterious disease that causes hundreds of people dance uncontrollably for weeks on end or Deborah's tale of the Halloween forever movement. I do and the kid who convinced her whole middle school to wear their costumes for a
In This World Series, It Was All About Home-Field Disadvantage
"Well how I can't recall that a go ahead two run Homer off will Harris in the seventh inning the Washington nationals with a six to win at Houston in game seven of the World Series and asks first World Series title pitchers David Strasbourg happy to bring the trophy back to the nation's capital a long way he sees like home now and there is just unbelievable for the first time in series history the visiting team what each game in a seven

A look at all 16 possible World Series matchups
"Allow with us right now is is EMMA LB Major League baseball analyst insider extraordinaire the great one himself the one and only Kirk Chin who will be in attendance for tonight's Oakland a's Tampa Bay rays one game divisional playoff game. What's going on man? How are you how's everything I'm great Stephen? Even a I'm at a playoff game. It's a winner. Take all situation on October the second this is pretty good stuff. You really really liked this one game stuff don't you. You really liked him. Well what I think it does Stephen Obviously it brings a game seven half. Let's fear to the beginning of October that that game last night was a really good game but it was even better because the poor brewers had to go home after losing and granted. It's really unfair that one of these teams tonight both worked on ninety five or more games going to have to go home after one but it does bring increased integrity to the regular killer season. It makes those hundred sixty two games so important so you don't have to play in this game but the fact that the loser goes home home makes it. It has a level even high. I gotTA admit him. I'm very shocked by that position that you take because you are one of the most fair minded people I've ever known on and to go to a hundred and sixty two game season and it to come down told one game. It's it almost seems grew. It really does well. It is cruel stephen a but this is a cool sport and I was not in favor of this but here is the option if we were gonNA play a best best of three. Let's say and you are the New York Yankees. Let's say you want your division and you get to host the next round and we have ties leading into the wild card situation and then you play best of three it's possible the Yankees can win a hundred and ten game name say in a season and then take eight days off before they play a playoff game. That isn't fair you need to you need to really welcome the teams teams that won their division and put them in the best possible spot but if you make them wait a week before they get to play. I don't think that's fair. Wow Turkey right here with steven a radio. ESPN news fair enough. That game was something special last night at least the last couple of innings of soda to to to to Gino's keynote hit it to right field identify Grisham to commit that era. I gotTa tell you it was great to see how electric atmosphere was. How much did baseball Paul need particularly when we have just heard reports come down to how attendance drop but so like a six year low or something like that right well baseball can use all the health can get right now? It's still for me at least the greatest game and yet things are starting to slip a little bit and big game like that starting out like that in a city. That's like the biggest game the nationals of one well biggest game. A team in Washington is one baseball nineteen thirty three for goodness sake. That's what made it so good. That's why that celebration was so good and I'll crom tonight. Stephen Ain't no matter what happens this is gonna be a great night for baseball 'cause weighty. Did you see the Oakland Coliseum tonight with fifty thousand people in your they don't have the most fans in the world but the fans they have our rate and they are loud and it should be a tremendous atmosphere so this is a great jump start to the postseason in baseball last night in Washington and no matter what happens tonight tonight tonight in Oakland who you have when you look at tonight's game just evaluate this this match up to me between the as and Tampa Bay talk to me about you know who's looking good in mismatch in what well I like both teams. I'm GONNA pick I like it matters. I'M GONNA pick the as because they're at home. I'M GONNA pick the as Ashok MNAYA WHO's four no with a one twenty-one year as it's coming off the list has been great. Their bullpen is pretty darn good and they can just ask Mash Stephen a more than any team in the history of the Oakland A.'s in the franchise so they can really pounded but they're going up against Charlie Morton who was one of the best pitchers in the game this year. I saw his last start against your Yankees Steven A. and he he threw six scoreless. Let's see was completely dominant and if you throws like that he's GonNa win tonight. That's how good he was so this is a toss up game. I'll just take the as 'cause they gotta pick. Somebody and I'll take 'cause they're at home. You brought up my Yankee so let's get right to it because you know that's what I really really care about. Tim Kirk Okay. I'm very concerned earn. I am not concerned about the Minnesota twins even donate three hundred and seven home runs this year. I just think they're allergic to prosperity whenever their face against the New York Yankees the Houston Houston Astros are an entirely different matter with Verlaine with Cole Whitt Cranky. I don't see anybody beating. These guys. Talk to me about my yankees prospects. The this postseason Tim Kirk well first off. Do not look pass the twins. Even though I'm with you I believe will win. This series do not look past the team that can swing it like that. Team can second I think the Astros are the best team not just in the American league but in both leagues and I'm not sure how any team to navigate through those friends for you guys in the rotation especially coal and Burland at the top and I'm also going to tell you it's even a there or is hope that the Yankees can win the world series that make you really happy a bunch of things have to happen of course after mash like they always do the bullpen has to be great great like it always has been but Luis Severino comes back and give them five dominant innings. Can we've seen him do and if James Paxton this good he's one ten starts in a row. If Tanaka can give them one really good start or a few really good starts I think they are good enough to win the world series with the team that they have now but I still have them as the third best team in baseball go in behind the Astros and the dodge transitioned to the Los Los Angeles dodgers. They've got to face these Washington nationals in the LDS. How do you see that matchup handicap that for me well? I liked the dodgers in that matchup with the understanding understanding that if Max Scherzer can return to being the great Max Scherzer which he has not been since he came off the injured list is not he wasn't that guy last night. He wasn't that Guy September. If he returns to the best he's ever been with him. In Strasbourg Patrick Corbin they can give the dodgers a really really hard time with with that starting rotation and that lineup is very potent these days. I just think the dodgers are more complete team. They hit the ball out of the Ballpark ballpark with anybody. Three stars in the rotation are really good. My key question with 'em is is their back end to the bullpen as good as it needs to be Kenley Kenley Jansen get the people out. He needs to get out if he can't. They're not going to win the world series. How wants faiths the dodgers fans having jetson? I know I don't have much. I like the guy personally early but I I I don't. I don't trust him. I don't trust them a big spots. I think he can be hit. Talk to me about him. For a second yeah his is down his cuddled. It doesn't have the same movement to better tad in the past and that gives fans of pause. They do have some other health back there there but I really thought they'd go get more help at the trade deadline and they didn't so they're gonNA hope starting pitching and power is going to carry them and they're hoping pinged Kenley Jansen his best but I seen him much much better than he's been this year. What should we make about the fact that you've got high payrolls dodgers Yankees you know old? I don't know the order in which is the highest payroll. You would know that at this particular juncture but I must ask you Tampa Bay is in the postseason obviously lowest payroll in major league baseball well. I do believe I know that I mean how do you explain the fact that teams like the as in the Tampa Bay rays notoriously alot payrolls manage to get this fall and sometimes further dentist with the highest payrolls talked about that for a quick second as a protest. Why baseball is so great even a is that Lebron doesn't touch it on every possession? Kevin Durant doesn't touch it on every possession it is so much more of a eighteen game in its own way because you could lose a superstar and still be really good you have to draft and develop properly like the as and the rays done you have to play the game in a better manner because you can't afford to make a mistake because you know either in free agency or trade because it could set that you back with a raise did they. They got Austin Meadows and tyler glass now in a deal for Chris Archer Saint the whole team now they've ninety games two years in a row they they are really good but they're really 'cause they play the game even a defense base running better than most teams do instead of just sitting back saying well.

Don't underestimate a team that hit over three hundred homers with the as as you picked as over the race tonight which means there as will go up against Houston obviously you pick in Houston to win that series assuming it comes down to that and the LDS correct yeah yeah but no cakewalk they're not against the as but I have the astros advancing against the how formidable on the Atlanta braves not mean I mean I mean at least in these parts. We talked enough about them. How good is this Atlanta braves team well? If Ronald Kunia junior and Freddy Freeman are completely healthy and they they want to finish the season they are the biggest threat to the dodgers in the National League for me. They're lying is absolutely relentless and with some of the pitching moves they made young and Old Dallas Cycle and the upgrades in their bullpen. I like that team. I don't like it as much as I like the dodgers but they can beat the dodgers with the team. They have right now so the nationals brightest moment was last night because you don't see them beating the dodgers correct I don't because they're going to start on the road.
