"We pay tribute to Joe Morgan, Whitey Ford and Jimmie Lee Solomon. And there's a great story in there that week. I can't really expand too much on this segment. But I was convinced for five years, but Jimmie Lee Solomon was going to be the next commissioner of baseball. And I go. It's a grand detail on how this sport would have been so much better. And in 2002. I met Rob Manfred and I never would have considered him for for for commitment. It's wild, and it's a It's a really interesting story Has Azaz Rob Manford done a good job with what baseball has accomplished this year? With what they've accomplished? Yes, No, because he has a labour issue coming and he hasn't addressed it in the slightest. And insiders tell me that that was never on the table. If you compare it to hockey, he created that bubble up in Canada, and they extended their CBS for years with don fear as the head of the players exactly. December 1st December, 1st 2021 his arm again, right? December 1st 2021 that day a little sooner. But yeah, that's when the C B a lock it down and they and the owners are going to lock things down and it's going to be it's going to be a civil war thought people were mad. During the summer. When you know it was owners versus Player's Imagine when we're finally getting back on our feet. We've got live sports back. We've got full arenas and everything so positive. And then we're gonna have a word. I just think that they could have gas this entire 2020 season and fix their sport and they would finish up in a better position. Then had they played this season and have the problems they have coming forward explained to me how the Tampa Bay Rays spend pennies on the dollar tow other organizations in Major League Baseball. And LAPD, um, consistently in being able to develop Ah contending type organization. Well, the neatest thing about the races you have to understand that their entire front office are the disciples of Andrew Friedman. And Andrew Friedman, who's running the Dodgers. And if you don't people with short memories, understand, Andrew Friedman set a culture down there, and I want to also give their owner Stuart Sternberg. A lot of credit. He's been a very, very committed owner. I don't have any money and he doesn't have any revenue coming in. But he's been a very committed owner to that baseball team, and they have the right people and when they came in And Kevin Cashes the right temperament for that ball club. I like them, and I like them when it was 162 game season. You know, when we were having this conversation, I like them. I didn't say that they were going to be the best team in American League or win the American League pennant. Because it was so long ago, But in this hodgepodge season, they have done very well and I think there are a lot of fun. You know they're not going to join the ratings. But you you know, baseball will get criticized for that. But that's not their fault. Now the Dodgers in the Braves in a Siri's, where Mo mentum is meant nothing. I keep hearing talk of momentum, but there has been no momentum in this serious because every time we think some team has it, they don't so going into Game seven tonight. What do you think he can take away from what you've seen through games. 11 through six. I'm done getting because I was convinced 11 in the fifth inning of Game four. I was convinced the serious going seven Don't forget the Braves won that game and it was 31 and I said, Wait a second. This whole thing seems to have backfired. And I wondered if leaving Kershaw and too long was going to come back and bite Dave Roberts. When I did Dave Roberts? Yes, the whole organization. Not just Dave Roberts wasn't he's not greatly little sitting on an island thinking about Pedro Martinez. Okay, he but that was all by script. And, you know, I just thought that the Dodgers window closed in Game four. I really did. And I was convinced, and even when they won in dramatic fashion in Game five, I was still convinced the Braves with women six. But now I guess I'll go back to the original project projection. That's my projections. In short, Siri's or funny because you got to the game seven. I just didn't think we'd get there this way. I am so impressed with what the Braves have done, though. And the way I look at it is this like these air two teams sort of at a crossroads because I think this is the Braves just again. This offseason was the launching off point. I had breakfast with Alex Anthopoulos before the season. Well, what can I do? It was on the show last week. Any joined us right before it and I said what he said. What did the fans need in the town this year? I said the fans need youto win a postseason. Siri's. It's got to be And you got to show up in the NLCS and you have to look like you belong. That's what the fans are going to demand from this young team. They've shown they belonged, and now they're in a game seven. I mean, it's it's I like their chances tonight a lot. I do, too. And you know the thing about the last time they were in the NLCS. It was 2000 won. Because we have these massive national tragedies and the Braves have success in this century. Very, very strange for you know, random power Parallel. I mean, look, this is a pickup game. You know, I'm not going to. You know one thing. I'll never be lonely with you and say I have a reason to think. Atlanta or or Ella. You know, the neutral site has kind of wiped that all out. There has not been an off day and both bullpens our guest, but baseball reinstituted be off days in the World Series. So you'll have an opportunity. If you win tonight. You have an off day Monday before you start up Tuesday. But then there's an off day between games too. And three. That's vital because don't forget they originally had changed that plan and took the off days out. After the train deadline. So you you knew that all the teams and you didn't allow them a chance to stock up on arms..

"The board I feel like we talk about this race ballpark issue a lot really do but there is new information because the owner had new things to say yesterday so let me run through it all up up the phone lines eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two is the number to get your reaction race principal owner Stuart Sternberg said yesterday that splitting future seasons in Montreal remains the most likely and probably the only way to keep the team in the Tampa Bay area Tampa Bay times reported that despite their time table for sharing games being pushed back to twenty twenty eight with C. P. mayores Christman's refusal to allow move before the end of their Tropicana field use agreement Sternberg said the race will continue to push hard for the Montreal plan the plants not gonna work it's a bad plan I was that emoji the clapper mochi like this is a bad idea perfect to use for it either it's too little in these situations is like top dog the owner of the man like the higher ground they're they're battling back and forth but the whole thing's a mass he said something we would all like to have happen in twenty twenty four twenty twenty five will happen in twenty twenty eight everything's getting pushed back okay what they'll work on now is determining the viability of a planned the calls for a new open air stadium to be built in both markets because he said they need to know in the next twelve months or so whether it'll work as well as they expect and either way they need to know by twenty twenty two or twenty twenty three at the latest where they're gonna be playing the twenty twenty eight twenty twenty eight sounds like a long ways away a long way away but when you're talking about ball parks and in building stadiums and all of that it's it's really not yes it is time is running out here if this sharing plan can't be worked out Sternberg said he would either then start looking for a new home elsewhere or more likely sell the team to someone who would move it but staying full time in the Tampa Bay area in Pinellas or Hillsborough remains the least likely option he said he never say never but I can envision it it's less than highly unlikely he's basically saying there's there's essentially is zero but highly unlikely the balance was zero is you're gonna get if they were to consider it he said I Hillsborough site would no doubt be the choice over Saint Pete but Hillsborough options don't seem to be viable enough either here's the thing Hillsborough is viable it can be done but Starbird has to put up half it's kind of like when there's a divorce in the woman says I want tax that's Hillsborough County we need a half if you could do a half you can keep the team here attendance will and pearls it'll be a great set up anymore city but they don't want Starbird and ownership for the race they don't want to put up the amount of money needed to move the race across the bay that's what this comes down to now from a business standpoint can you blame them not necessarily if they think they can get a better deal elsewhere then from a business standpoint maybe that's the better decision but don't make it like all we we really want to keep the team here in Tampa Bay after only a way to keep them here we we we totally stable there is a way it is set to pony up a little bit more money it's not like these guys don't have to come all right he's been kind of a baby about it he's like it's his way or the highway we have to do this candidate thing because I had this phenomenal idea that is perfect and if this doesn't work out then I'll just sell it the Montreal splits is gone forever it's such nonsense it's such a waste of time and energy Starbird also said they're not looking to break their lease at the trop to leave before the end of the twenty twenty season he said potential reason they might was if they have the sharing plan in place and agreed with the mayor who replaces price men that it made sense to move the date out he said with the Montreal sharing plan regardless of whether the new ballpark as infidels or Hillsborough they project averaging twenty five thousand fans in each market that is such be yes yeah you're going to spoil a season so the rays are gonna be playing here full time we've taken the calls we've heard yes fan I don't think one person has been in favor now nobody has you're going to split the season and you expect there to be I mean that's a significant yeah in attendance over what they're getting now even when it's here all the time people can be passionate about a team for a full see exactly even if you move the ball park to Tampa a better location where you might get a bigger draw the way I see it any potential increase you would get from doing that is wiped out yeah because of the split season idea and people are going to be into the team anymore general where they're getting twenty five thousand fans for the Tampa Bay half of the season if the sharing plan doesn't prove viable Sternberg said he would not look to move the team to Montreal full time since he didn't think that would work so essentially you've got a city in Montreal where the team would work full time you've got Hillsborough Pinellas where he doesn't think the team would necessarily work full time three dealing with two cities neither one that can support team full time at me he he's a wealthy guy this is a smart guy I don't know why when it comes to this stuff he seems so not smart he said he hasn't even scratched the surface on other locations to move the team full time like Las Vegas Nashville Portland Charlotte and Orlando at of all of them I gotta be honest with you where are we talked about the mock up ball park in Nashville that they put together it was locked up in Nasser yeah there was a there was a mock up that they did for what the ball park set up would look like in Nashville similar to like the mock up that they did more city and the Nashville ballpark blew away what we put together free bar city there like a concert venue next to it and just the what I remember an amber yeah I mean I would be a good buy amounts to Sternberg and and I'm serious about moving the team Nashville is a city I'm looking at because I think the money is there I I think they could probably pull a decent crowd there and they can get what was proposed that's a hell of a ball park seven Sternberg added on to do everything I can to keep baseball here for generations there is one thread and this is the thread it's my commitment to myself to get something done to ensure that MLB baseball is being played in Tampa Bay in twenty fifty and a team that can be relatively successful see why that again is B. S. is because if he wanted to keep the team here I don't how many times we talked about the finances we've had no plans got a much time talk about the finances I've talked to people privately about the situation and the finances you could probably get Tampa and Hillsborough to get call if you've got an eight hundred million dollar ballpark Michael was proposed in the mock up in the renderings free more city you could probably get Hillsborough County close to four hundred million dark you would need half from Stu Sternberg ownership that's how you keep the team in Tampa so if your true interest is keeping the team in Tampa then you have to pony up if it's not really that important and this is strictly a business decision you're making that don't make it like you know keep in team Tampa is top priority finally Starbird has no interest in selling the team and he said no conversations with lightning owner Jeff Vinik about the team but would consider doing self relocating to another market was the only option took convicts will be in and save the day navy can you imagine well to me I've always felt like the the evil or city raise ball park set up could really yeah play into what Vinik's doing downtown you you start to connect the two with different types of transportation all of that and it could make for a hell of a set up but then you will have a a monopoly on all six fuel basically Tampa it will be Tampa Bay brought to you by Jeff Vinik yeah on another race related no top baseball agent Scott Boras who haven't paying attention to the off season and the deals being made and all of that he's doing like a tremendous job I he had this to say about the ongoing race ballpark issues quote it's a good product in a place that has proven to be appreciative of what baseball offers in Tampa Bay so I'm not sure that we have a fit and it's something that screams for attention I wouldn't necessarily say that the people here unappreciative of base now I think it's very difficult yeah where the stadium is that there's many many problems there's a lot of complications so a couple of questions number one again if you want to spend any of what I've laid out based on what race principal owner Stuart Sternberg said yesterday feel free to call us at eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two and also at this point are we getting to the point where and I'm certainly starting to get there just plus find another city sure yeah it's not like it's getting to the point how much longer are you going to drag the people of the Tampa Bay area along when it seems like you don't want to do what it would take to keep the team here and again from a business standpoint that can be understandable but don't make it like you really really want to keep the team in Tampa Bay because could if you wanted to so if that's the case then just start looking for a place to move the team so we can all move on and get prepared for what's next here in Tampa Bay post race eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two again eight hundred nine six nine ninety three fifty two I'm gonna robin Wesley chapel rob how are you yeah I'm doing good thanks for the call well are you know I deal with contract all day long and you know my opinion is there's a contract in place Starbird should live by the contract he bought the team going what was then played got to you can either penalty and a leash yeah or live with the contract that's right she does not have to talk now about this at all it's ridiculous the all of the professional team owners want somebody else yeah girl and it's ridiculous and that's fine look from a business standpoint if I'm a business guy likes to Sternberg maybe I would be looking for the best bottom line deal and maybe that wouldn't be here in the Tampa Bay area but then don't in the same brass say that you're doing everything you can to keep the race here through twenty fifty do you want baseball to work in Tampa Bay because you're you're essentially speaking out of both sides of your mouth exactly okay it's one eight chair he is what he wanted right right and thank you for the call rob pre sheet eight hundred nine six nine.

"I came moneyball about Billy bean, and the Oakland A's, and now book is out concerning the Tampa Bay rays and their ownership group. Stuart Sternberg and Matthew Silverman, who came off of Wall Street took over the team and turned it into a winner against some very big powerhouse teams like the Boston Red Sox, and the New York Yankees. And finally, somebody has come along with portfolio that knows what they're talking about from a business standpoint and combined it with a sports view as well. And that's Jona Kerry who's written a great book called the extra two percent. How Wall Street strategies took a major league baseball team from the worst to the first Jonah. What was the reason for writing this book, other than the fact that it was offered to me, the reason was, basically, because the time, it comes this was a story that needed to be told. And when you talk about the Oakland A's and moneyball that was certainly great story. But the team went went better, they were lower than the as worth of start of their journey and they ended up higher than the as where at the end of their journey. They won the AL pain and actually got. The World Series, which is something that the Oakland A's of reasons inch were not able to do. And Furthermore, the eighth didn't have to shoot down the Yankees and the Red Sox in order to do it. You can make a case. It's Tampa Bay rays along with the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays face the toughest task in professional sports, to beat the two juggernauts in their division with the most resources with the best players. And with the largest fan base, let's put this story into perspective because there may be some people around the world, who aren't aware of how bad, this organization was so talk about its ownership prior to Sternberg and Silverman, taking it over, they rode, my gentleman named Vince, minimal even Cimoli was notorious owner, he rankled a lot of people he ruffled a lot of feathers. One of my favorite stories is he was very vigilant about outside food not coming into the stadium. How vigilant was he? There was an old folks home, and they had a bunch of people going to bus and go to the game and people show up in their walkers, wheelchairs, what have you and there's a husband and wife and the white. And the wheelchair and she's rather, infirm, and the husband is pushing along and they get to the front gate in the stadium and the other. You know, the ticket taker looks at them. And says we got your hand there. It's a bag full of cash the little ziplock bag, so, you know, maybe couple dozen cashews and you cannot have that in the stadium, and she says, well, I'm weak I needed for, you know, to keep my blood sugar up and I need to keep going. No, no, no, no, no. And there's an argument ensues with the eighty year old, husband and everything goes to the craziness and at the end of it, basically, they had to turn them back and kick them out of this poor old couple went and sat on the bus for four hours while everybody else from the old folks home watch the game and the slaughtering son. They sat in the bus instead of being the ballpark. These were the policies advanced the Mouly created, and that's part of what made the rain, not only a bad team. But really the laughing stock of all baseball. And what about from a performance standpoint on the field? It was terrible..

How the Expos can finally return to Montreal

"The Montreal Expos never went away. Expos take the field here at Olympic stadium in Montreal the second game before game series, the Expos left. They left Montreal. They became the Washington nationals. They went off to play baseball in DC while Olympic stadium. Their former home sat empty and decaying the teams famous mascot UP even went to work for the Montreal Canadians because even furry orange monsters gotta eat. The idea of the Expos of a major league team in the heart of Montreal the modern monument to a sport with deep history in the province that never entirely vanished. There were always a few people some of them loudly and most of them very quietly keeping the fires burning mostly they were dreaming. But sometimes they were planning for the Tim's eventual return, and somehow that return might happen. The sport of baseball has changed. The city of Montreal has changed the business of sport in general has changed an unbelievably as cities around North America. Celebrate baseball's opening day today. It is beginning to seem like the team that never really went away is suddenly very close to coming back. How did this happen? How real is it? What does baseball mean to Montreal to Quebec or to Canada? And we'll those fans who refused to abandon their team. Even after their team, abandoned them finally get their happy ending. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Jeff Blair is the host of the Jeff Blair show on sports net. Five ninety the fan. He is the co host of the lead podcast with Stephen Brent knows a lot about baseball in Montreal because he covered the Expos for the zette for about a decade and for the global mail after that so it's opening day to day. There's no baseball in Montreal today. Not yet. But Montrealers are very excited this week. Why is that? Well, I think they should be excited. I mean, I covered the Expos from eighty eight to ninety seven on a full-time basis. And I was there when when the team ended up leaving town part of a franchise swap that saw the Expos go to Washington and saw the ownership of the Boston Red Sox in my and Miami Marlins change as part of the process at that time. There was very little support from the local business community. There were there was a very small collection of minority partners who were in for maybe million two million dollars a year, very small. They had been effectively bought out in a leveraged buyout by Jeffrey Loria was a New York art dealer who came in and saw that I think at the end of the day ended up putting in about twenty five million US of his own money into that team and that up buying it. And then when he sold the Marlins that was for one point three billion any that's but at that time. Time when when the Expos left the Commissioner was committed at the time, but ceiling was committed to bringing baseball back to Washington. It was it was a legacy thing for him. The Expos has I mentioned had no local corporate support. There was no political support. I mean, they didn't have a political champion in the mayor's office. They they had no political champions provincially as a matter of fact, when you know, I think when you talk to people who are involved in sort of the post Charles Bronfman area era, the expo is one of the things they'll say is that they were affectively screwed by p q government. There was just there were there was there was there was no reason to keep the Expos and much there. There is a plan to build a new ballpark was completely stillborn. So there was absolutely no reason for the Expos to stay in town. And of course, attendance it had had decreased while fast forward. Now, you have a new Commissioner rob Manfred. Who also even though he's only been inter for few years. Just thinking of his legacy and his legacy is in. Internationalizing the game. You've seen baseball games. Played in Japan. Baseball will play a game at Lord's Cricket Ground. This year the Red Sox and the Yankees. And rob Manfred has said that he thinks Montreal is a viable baseball market. He also thinks Mexico City's viable baseball. Mark in Montreal itself. You have a really well-funded core ownership group, Stephen Bronfman of Claridge investments, the son of Charles Bronfman and Mitch Garber who's kind of a fascinating guy. Mitch when I first met him. He's a lawyer his uncle was a lawyer who represented a lot of Expos players in and around Montreal Tim Raines, he keeps kind of a fixer for them. And I I mean that in a positive way Mitch also hosted a radio show late night. I mean, he was a dabbler really talented guy. He is now president of Caesars acquisitions international, essentially lives in Monaco. And he's on the French CBC French language version of dragons. Dan. He's he's he's a very he is shaker and mover. He was I believe I don't know if he's still as he was CEO of Cirque du Soleil at one point he's got a lot of money scuttle resume. He's got and he's and he's and he's a billionaire. He and Stephen Bronfman both known each other for while that they have they've kept the dream of baseball in Montreal alive. They done it very quietly as is their manners people. They're both fairly quiet, quiet. People very quietly. They had Denny co dare when he was mayor of Montreal who is a huge baseball. I mean, he's an he's a nut. But he's a huge baseball fan. And he you know, he was show up at every baseball event. The all star game the World Series it show up at the Commissioner's office. He he'd go to the Expos or the Blue Jays games every spring spring training just to kind of fly the flag and lobby for and lobby for a team to return to Montreal and the provincial government, both the liberal government. And the new government are very the very comfortable with the idea of entertaining, some sort of public private partnership. So what we have now is. Commissioner who views internationalizing the game as an important part of his legacy. We have people in Montreal ton of money. What we don't have as a team revolt park. Obviously we have Olympic state, and we don't have a team or ballpark. Well, this is going on the tap. The Tampa Bay rays have been have been trying for twenty twenty-five years to get a ballpark built. They play at Tropicana field in Saint Pete. So horrible ballpark that, you know, their their attendance is routinely the worst in the league somewhat bizarrely. They have one of the best TV contracts in the league. But their attendance is generally pretty poor. They have attempted to build a ballpark in different parts of Tampa. The the providence Saint Pete right now is that Tampa's where the growth there is in the area east of Tampa north Tampa. That's where the growth is. Unfortunately to get the Saint Pete you base give a choice of two bridges. So during rush hour access to Saint Pete from Tampa is essentially it's the worst place you could imagine in the region right ballpark last year. There seemed to be finally at least for the people in Tampa. There seemed to be memento. Adam behind building a ballpark in ebor city, which is to to the eastern part of the city. It's an old old warehouse area. And I I hadn't been paying attention to it at baseball's winter meetings or something happened it collapsed. I don't know what I don't know the exact majority just collapsed. So the winter meetings in baseball where everybody in baseball gathers media general managers owners, it's it's kinda like a swap shop trades or made sometimes free agents or talked about and all that there was a news conference call by Stuart Sternberg with the owner of the race and his president, which if you've got something you wanna float as if you've got a trial balloon you wanna float in baseball. You do it at the winter meetings because everybody who writes talks thinks about baseball is there, right? They held a news conference. You know, blah, blah, blah stadium issue in Tampa. We still have a lease at Tropicana field the twenty twenty four twenty until twenty twenty-seven dot that up. But and this was was was very subtle. And I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been tipped off about this by a raise official the raise owner. Said listen, we're not getting a park built in tap. We do have a lease right now until twenty twenty seven Saint Petersburg prime real estate in terms of building condos mixed business residential area. I mean, it is a it is a gold mine for raising tax. If there's a crappy building city there's a crappy building sitting on it that we're going to be gone from an in in ten years. So what he did what Stuart Sternberg did was he kind of flipped it a bit. And said, here's the thing. Yeah. We could be here twenty twenty seven. But man, if you guys get an offer between now and then for this parcel a land who knows what the economy's going to look like in twenty twenty seven right? Could be better could be worse. So centrally what he said is. Hey, if you guys get a good offer for this. You know, I'd be willing to cut you deal here to to to help you finish this off. Please. Let me go, please. Let me go. So well that's going on, you know, the folks in Montreal again, very quietly quietly, very diligently. Claridge investments is involved in purchasing land in Griffin town part of Montreal. Which is. Near the peel basin. It's it's kind of an area that's undergoing gentrification. So you've got that. Now, you've got a Tampa Bay rays owner. Who knows he's not gonna stay there? Now, you've got people with money in Montreal in a ballpark. You've got a Commissioner who is committed to this one of the things the tappan though as well, as in addition to all that sort of falling in place, one of the things rob Manfred, the Commissioner says look I realized the reality of the situation now is I'm not going to ask you to build a ballpark. And then give you a team he cited Quebec, cities, and example, building an arena. No NHL team. You said not gonna do that. I just need see the plans. I didn't need the shovel in the ground show me the financing show me the plans haven't nailed down. And we'll try to get a team in. Montreal. Stuart Sternberg owns the raise lives in New York. So what kind of happened in the past couple of months? People started to realize well who says Stuart Sternberg has to sell the raise or Montreal has to get an expansion team. What a Stuart Sternberg said moved the race to Montreal. I live in New York. It's not a big flight. Maybe. I wanna be a majority partner. But maybe I want twenty percent. Maybe bell media comes in for twenty percent char or Stephen Bronfman and Mitch Garber have thirty percent each and away we go. So all these things have kind of have fallen in place if you'd asked me for years ago. I would've said there's no chance of baseball returning to much you're on my lifetime. Now, I'd be stunned. If there isn't a major league team in Montreal within the next six or seven years five years might be a little tight, but just sort of planning this thing out of that. I can see baseball back in Montreal in six seven years at the outside. I'll be surprised if it isn't
