We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades.

Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US.

If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become.

Indians rally but fall to Red Sox in extra innings
"More late game dramatic for the Cleveland Indians and they did force the game against the red Sox into extras however with the Jackie Bradley junior home run in the tenth inning that provided the final advantage on a night when Chris sale crosses the two thousand strikeout threshold quickest in Major League Baseball history Tom Hamilton with a call from the ninth inning at progressive field on the Indians radio network and despite the loss and with the twins when actually the Indians have fallen I have came back in the AL central standings despite all of that it's mostly good news forty three in eighteen are the windy ends going back to the first week in June best record in majors the majors over that span it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio really excited to welcome James repeating from our affiliate in Cleveland ninety two three the Fannie covers the Indians and the Cavaliers since it they're not a disease James thanks so much for a couple minutes what's been the major driving force between this incredible rally by the Indians going back to the beginning of June it's hard to say one thing because it's it's been such a variety of factors it and almost everyone should begin from the the stars on the team like Francisco ling door Carlos Santana the young players that no one ever heard of a few months ago exactly sat who's done great as a starting pitcher so it's it sounds really cliche but a complete team effort but but I will say it you got it starts with with Francisco Lindores starts with that my claim injures returned Shane beeper has been wonderful for that the Indian for this year so that by hiring to push hard guy that America over the past couple of months that have been great and then another guy and I could just keep listing I thank god but Oscar marcato really since he got brought up in in late may I kind of stabilized at about field in and help them in that second spotter there that out in the two all because that that was a revolving door before my kind of got promoted so it's it's been a complete team effort but it's certainly been something that's gotten Cleveland excited for something other than the Browns which I think it's hard to do you mentioned Jamie Byrne I was gonna ask about him specifically because he's now twelve and four with an ERA of about three point two five and leads the team in strikeouts how much of a surprise is his second year in the majors I think a huge surprise not not that anyone expected him to be bad I think people thought he was going to be gone he was their team's victory was the Indians have started going into the year I mean they they felt great about him as that type of Connie but now you look and is arguably their eight worst case their second best pitcher and he's been as low liable as anyone in that rotation and it's a pretty complete games this year or obviously an all star and all star game MVP so it's been a pretty it's a real thing this season so far even the thing with him at acting stands out above anything else is how even keeled he is he's the same guy I thought on opening day on Clevenger same guy I saw one thing in it you know it it might all star game affect any of them have let let the team's success impact them and I think those around him were surprised at that a little bit Indians not so much but yeah he's been pay a shining a shiny starts toward you I've got many health and big this year same number of winds as the twins just one more in the loss column so I have came back now what's the latest on Corey Kluber when might the Indian feed him again in the starting rotation I could see him coming back later this month he he's progressing well is work out thirteen as intense as anyone we haven't from a a broken form like he has he made his second rehab start for double A. Akron tonight it's for ending allowed one run with perfect three three so things that things seem to be Kerr progressing well he three sixty pitches tonight I would expect at least one more we had to start and then if you back later this month that I would be shocked at all I think that was our goal all along is to get him back at some point in August but it looks like he's on track to do just that one of my favorite moments from the all star break there at progressive field in Cleveland was that the year stand up to cancer and Carlos Carrasco with all of his teammates and he's been vocal about what he's gone through as he has battled leukemia what's his status yeah it's it's kind of crazy because as scary as it leukemia sounds in an obviously is there's a real chance that at some point this year he could take them out again occurring in here well the wrong guy it's insane to think but I I really think that there granting them up so to speak in in not putting expectations on them but but they're they're certainly trying to see if he can do that in in he certainly open to it he's he's gone for the better part of a month he threw a bull pen on Tuesday afternoon and then cut ground balls off the mound and ran sprints even after the threat hitters this week so it's double that that that's usually the step right before we have to start you know so it's it's good to see you will see if it continues you never know with something like this I don't think anyone in the organization really quick expectations on it there certainly isn't a timetable but I wouldn't be shocked at all if at some point this year even if it's a couple and roll Carlos Carrasco rejoins the Indians and contribute to the big league club game thirteen of our Cleveland affiliate ninety two three the fan talking about the Indians best record and made in the majors going back a nine weeks or so it's after hours here on CBS sports radio how much of an inspiration has he bit the fact that he's even participating in any baseball activities after what he's been through well you said the best record since four we went on an interpreter on June fifth the team found out about his diagnosis on June fourth from what I know so it sounds like it's it's it came right back and you know it is the car's inspiration and I will say if storybook as that sounds crazy that sounds I do think that there was a change in the clubhouse now that that mean it translated to success on the field no but I think it put baseball perspective because a lot of those guys were struggling a lot of the role players that stepped up over the past few months where we're struggling and and having issues at the plate having issues in the field Jose Ramirez was it was not the guy that he's been over the past six weeks or so so I think that that was resting it was kind of put things in perspective and help out help everyone reset and rally not only around him but but rally together in IT help them during this run for sure and not just the inspiration but just the the joy that seems to be so contagious with fifteen as they've managed to go from being you know a team a barely have the polls to a team it's now challenging for a division title and I think they're having a blast right now I mean even tonight they lose to the red Sox and it's it's six the one and it just seems like it's that they're going to go out with a whimper and and try to win the series tomorrow instead they they take it the actress they find a way to rally and it's it's one of those things were right now they're playing in expecting to win every single game they they don't think they're out of any game and and we've seen it over the past couple of months so yeah I I think they're having a blast I think the young guys have certainly contributed to that and I have just jump right in well without really missing a beat I mean errant's of Ali has three starts and he had to do it in critical critical times it has a lot to run the restart so it it there's just a handful of guys that have contributed to that no one would have expected and I I really do you're right that they're having a ton of fun doing it having the best record in baseball for the past couple of months what was that the main reason for the trade of Trevor Bauer to Cincinnati I think the main thing was was baseball now that there were certainly some contributing factors but I think baseball live in your work that his contract and you have one year left of arbitration next year he's made it very clear he wants to do one year deals one twenty twenty one and moving forward is not confined in a long term extension because you want to maximize value I think they need to look at that they look at their the young pitchers they have that my competition deeper no list really goes on and on there and they said alright well this is a guy that at some point we're gonna have to move on from I don't think that they had to move on from him at the deadline and I think they were only looking for a deal that they got which was a deal that not only help them this year but in the future and so that's that's why they made the move but I certainly think that his act had worn thin on some of the guys in the clubhouse for sure especially that you know the coach is that you know if you're technically not less than you want to do is be answering questions about cover about when the ball is in a field wall fella I think that that that is active warrant been a bad but that you took the right deal to get it done and and that's why he's in Cincinnati James are being of ninety two three the fan in Cleveland our affiliate with us after hours on CBS sports radio okay you mention active though yeah I feel we've been known to have it every now and then so how is the fitting in with the Indy and so far he's sitting in extremely well in and I think that that was one of the major concerns when you talk about week is how's he going to fit with this team that is built searching at the deadline will be transformed itself from the seller to a buyer you know when to bring someone in to disrupt that and he's coming right away and he knew Francisco indoor Carlos Santana a little bit but he's come in and and a level and if it helps any sitting around three fifteen and eleven games for the Indians but but though he's playing well but but it's it's one of those things where he's come in right away welcome naturally he's one of the stars in baseball but he's also in well with what Terry Francona preaches in one thing that stands out to me here maybe a week after you got here I walk into the clubhouse any sitting there were critical and or Carlos Santana friend all right yes you know just talking like they've been teammates all year it's been a good acquisition so far for the track tell the truth so that fifty fifty Indians Browns what is it I mean it it we print excited about Baker may feel Odell Beckham junior it's better you know I mean in the Browns are exciting I think part of it you know the fans out of Cleveland Indians fans plants and they seem Ian there well and when the president and he would go to the World Series a few years ago in a brown paper bag for twenty years so this is this is new uncharted waters for a lot of Browns fans so I I think they're extremely excited but certainly paying attention to the Indians and the run here in an excited to see if they can do something in October that's October is just around the corner yeah looking looking forward to seeing how the city in the the fan base respond to both of those teams are doing well in the same month that would be kind of cool to see on the shores of

The Indians beat them last year, the ASTRO's beat them, but he seemed to have lost control of the clubhouse after with this whole story of David price kind of calling out Dennis Eckersley on a team flight because Eckersley criticized another Red Sox player in price decided he was going to stand up and John Farrell didn't handle that. Well, I think if that had happened this year, Alex Cora would handle it much better foot Farrell, kind of gave a sense of being very aloof. Whereas Alexkor seems like someone who's not afraid to maybe even get an employer space Berkeley's or be there be one of the guys. But still everyone understands he's in control. And he's going to call you out Farrell Farrel kind of didn't want. Well, it almost felt like a Senator. He actually looks like a US Senator right now. Yeah. Okay. He's a little bit to curl for me. Exactly. Yeah. He's a handsome, man. John farrell. Okay. He's symmetrical definitely symmetric. He's tall. He's like six four. He's got a presence about him. But scores more Hillary's type, no. Parents. I liked the Terry Francona. Oh my God. Yes. The all the all the ladies like the bad. Boy, Terry Francona. Yes. I like territory Bobby Valentine, not so much. Well, I I mean, it's hard to get over the mess. Here. He actually actually Bobby Valentine close friend in support of Donald Trump was interested in becoming embassador Japan. God. Yes. That would have been an interesting, but actually Bobby Valentine is loved in Japan. He was a very successful manager. Johnny Ashwell Leakey's loves baseball. Speak speaks fluent Japanese when it comes to. I mean, his looks weren't all that bad. No, no sixties late sixties. He's a great athlete at USC his young days. He was considered kind of like a sexy baseball player. I mean, I think yeah. It's it's tough sometimes to separate the manager from from how the team does terms of their looks. It's just a weird, you know when you're winning World Series. You look very very good. You look very handsome when you spend one year here, they cluster, you know, why? So good. I know the feeling Hillary. I don't think anyone expected. I mean, the the Red Sox were juggernaut whatever with the lineup, whatever. But I don't think anyone expected Alex Cora one hundred and eight games in his first season Gracie run away with the division and now in the playoffs seven and two. So I don't think anybody expected it to be this, easy or or two an earlier just everything he touches turns to gold. It's amazing is correct. I had to choose in. This is very this is going to sound weird. But if I had to choose based on looks alone, not any managers now. Go with the last four, okay. This is. This is just between feral and Cora. Okay. If I had to choose between them, I would actually go and Cora. Okay. Has Farrell seems like to a news anchor doesn't he? Well, a TV news. I got the sense first of all that he doesn't want to spend any time with me apart from well. Right. This is going to be with the boys like heavy with other girls. Oh, yes. I'm not saying he doesn't like the ladies. I think that the idea would be there would be nothing there as apart from sex. Right. So it's like if that's all I wanted. I guess, but that's not the person. I feel like we could have time with exactly I can start dating reporter. She had job. Yep. Jess moran. Ran. She was at Comcast sports net. She was covering the Red Sox narrowly bring her it was an Aaron Andrews follow up. I guess wait. Was she wasn't Erin Andrews. It was just I know it wasn't the same horse Hazel may he's rumored to be. I shouldn't even say this. I won't. But so no there wasn't. Reporter who came out and actually dating a Red Sox person was Heidi always Cutty outy Watney with Jason Varitek. Thank you. Yes. And there were rumors of Terry Francona Hazel may Erin Andrews forgive me. That was actually she was very solid. Reporter did a great job. And she actually she sued a hotel because they didn't provide proper security, and she was you know. Wasn't sexually assaulted but breached radio tape from people like Gary. Yeah. Herald, I believe she dates a hockey player. She married him. I believe now. Okay. Yeah. Forgive me with that name. But I'm Jay Z here this morning, but it was in sort of secession because after Heidi did Aaron come in or no, no, Erin Andrews never worked. Okay. Does Heidi Watney? And then it wasn't just Moran. Then they went to a guy at that point. Okay. Started having a couple of guys just to keep the the baseball players focused at that point. You just put the guy in the dugout great old from there. Yeah. Left her job and everything I think this together, I think live in Charlestown. So not like he was a fling. I guess, but yeah, no. It was definitely a story when it happened. Like, why is he did anybody and he's going to date a reporter? Yeah. That's not good. So he was just nuts. The black Mark on John fellows, like legacy here in people wanting to get rid of many, these very macho looking isn't John Farrell kinda get that. Yeah. Very macho about six foot four he's a big guy. We're scores like five ten maybe. But I could see what you think. Alex Corby, more fun to hang around even as a guy. Yeah. It'd be kind of like, you know. Good sense of humor. Yes. I get the sense. Even if you were if I was hanging out with John Farrell. He just looks at in the word the word that comes to me is reticent. Yes. Do anything fun. No senatorial, doesn't he? I know that's giving him too much cream fibers tend to be kind of boring. Don't they look? And I don't think he I think Alex Cora be good as a member of the house. I think John Farrell be. Yeah. I don't know. I can't I do agree with you. I think Alex Cora a better to hang out with have a beer with whatever hang out or whatever something like that. John. John Farrell seems like like he wants in anyway Pathak glass of wine with his meal. Yes. Something like. No he'd have a beer Dan Farrell. We may have he may have a beer, but I say he just doesn't look like you got you wanna hang out with right. Yeah. Yeah. The only there would be two things. Right. Putting me during some sort of Barbara. He's a big guy because he would absolutely protect. May from from anything scrapper or as a scrapper middle infielder. Once it comes down to actual threat. I don't care. It's your size. Why would rather go with a proven while shield? Start just hanging out with rob gronkowski at this point. Because no one's gonna I'm just going taking through the potentials. I said I said basically about this. All these different chilly. It's funny 'cause he's the whole package. He is a big guy six. Okay. Big like, a big guy. And I normally as a you know, I was when I was a kid. I had a crush on like, Michael J, FOX like the guy. Right. The boyish-looking. It was like, sir. I feel like it was an eighties thing. But I always had a crush on sorta the looking. Heartthrobs? But then like pony boy, I think I really liked from the outsiders see Thomas Sowell, huge crush on St. Thomas Howard. But Peter is the most like testosterone manly man, looking guy I've ever fallen for okay? Yeah. Yeah. He's. To some extent Chicago usually win for the more boyish looking guys against type was against surprise Ryan. But or she also is really cool to hang out with and really funny and all that stuff so total package as you said, exactly. So myself I refer to.

"If you are able to ex- not only understand and execute the vision that the front office is trying to pass along, but that you can sell that to the group of players and have them by it in kind of like their own idea where the coaching staff own idea, and it seems like the raise for you know, they do a lot of things well, but one of the things that it seems like they have now appropriately set up is a communication line between the front office and the coaching staff where the front office game plan is being implemented and it's being bought into by the by the roster's. Yes, and look here. Here's what, what a manager or staff member can represent in a clubhouse into players. Is there's a term we use called pipeline, and that means if we're sitting around the cage crops or we're doing soft offs, we're getting working and you're the hitting coach, and I'm venting to you about a lack of playing time, or I'm venting to you about my place in the order, my place in the lineup and did two days later. I have a conversation with the skipper about where I'm hitting in the lineup and how I I know that you're a fucking pipeline and I know that I can no longer trust you and I can't trust our time in the cage as a place of of solitude, and safety and security. I know look at you like you're pipeline to the puck and manager and your pipeline to the front office. Everything. I'm going to say you're just carrying water. So you're out buck you. Well, now given cash is somebody that these guys are like you. He does have the ear of the front office, but we also know he's a baseball guy. We also know he cares about us. So he's done a good job of. Creating the relationships that say, this is a father, son, big brother, big brother, uncle nephew, whatever relationship you wanna see this as I got your back row, I got your back. I'm not here to sell anybody out, and he's done a great job of speaking of the Terry Francona tree. I saw this on the walk over here. It's kind of like a developing story. David Ross might be interviewing for the opening twins managerial position. So, yeah. That would be interesting to say the least. I don't know why. I mean, I think he'd be great at it, but I mean, homeboy just retired. When out on top won a World Series with the cubs retired hero, he's got a nice gig doing his ESPN thing. You know, I don't know. Maybe just miss it. Maybe just missed the the one hundred sixty to the grind of the full season. Some guys, you know, they don't wanna get away from it, but I don't know. I, it's, it's interesting to say the least I would say. A love Rossi if I I wouldn't be. That's what's interesting is is he seemed to be ready for dad time. Yeah. Be ready to be to be a family man. Yeah. And, yeah, but you know, again, if your team is at home and you got your family with you, you're coming home to your family as opposed to just constantly being on the road. Look base book, man, dravis there's just this game when you truly are married to this game, and you know that this is what this is your lifeline? Yes. Is this is water, but he feel he can still quench the thirst by doing the ESPN gig. So here's here's how I feel about just beloved players becoming managers. So when Jason Varitek was rumored to be the next Red Sox manager, I was like, I don't wanna see it. I think he'd be a great manager. I don't wanna see it because it's the most scrutinized position in the whole entire city. So do I wanna come out Jason Varitek former captain two-time World Series champion to if he makes a bad decision, do I want to crush him for that? Fuck, no, no, I don't. Wanna do that. Thank. God, I got, Alex cora's my manager. He doesn't make bad decisions, but David Ross, these a lovable guy, do I want him in a position where maybe he fucks like look at Aaron, boo. Perfect example. Aaron Boone in as the Yankees manager, dude was a legend. Dude, was a legend now might my tire Twitter time is fuck Aaron, Boone ahead on firearm? Boone like, why would you like?.

"They get started in Houston Friday night game one of their American League division series. Leland skipper, Terry Francona discussing the Astros and how he's planning on using his pitching staff in the series when he met with the medium on Thursday. I don't ever manage another team hands full with this team. Go my own thing. I never evaluated or ever. I mean, the fact that they won and things didn't go necessarily corny playing like in the bullpen shows that they're not afraid to to deviate or whatever. But I never like I said, I got my hands full doing what I do here. Get some thoughts from you about Justin Verlander who boy he's one of the best. He's been one of the best. He's been doing it for for forever. You know, maybe about five or six years ago. It looked like he was starting to show some wear and tear away. Also. He's he's fun to face. And a Swiss reason, I say that because you think you're going to beat them around. But because he's so good as like the Astros. They present so many challenges, but they're fun to play. You know, they're they're really good as his ver- Lander. But if we want to get low we're going we're going to have to figure out a way to beat them. But they're fun to play. We're talking the other day about Trevor Shane Shannon game four, and it depends on what happens the first three. You said Andrew can throw fifty pitches. Like he like he did two years ago. Could be that guy. Could Trevor throw throw you fifty pitches in one game and come back the next night and be available. Again, if anybody could is probably him again he can throw Andrew control fifty pitches. I don't wanna do that as kind of my point took it. I don't know that we wanna do that with anybody. He'll sometimes things happen. You know in Canada. Did you can't recreate every single thing that happened a couple of years ago, but our job now is to take who we have now and get the best out of them. I guess a roundabout way of answering. Your question is if we get where we want my guess is that Trump is going to be used a ton. Indian skipper Terry Francona on Thursday Burland Johnston, Verlander sixteen wins nine losses. Two point five two ERA during the regular season did not go up against the Houston Astros. Corey kluber twenty game winner of victory in two starts against the Indians. During the regular season Astros skipper AJ Hinch also met with the media on Thursday this series of the more traditional. There's so many strong starters. Is that nice? Is that significant significant? How does that? Well, it's significant because you'll see the most, you know, the most starter innings, you know, if things play out as people expect and now that now that it's laid out that way, you probably won't and there'll be some starters that leave early. But I think it's just different. I think I've said this all year about the opener versus versus our rotation. We face all kinds of guys September created a whole new, you know, love affair with the with the opener idea in the had expanded rosters. Now you have short series. I think you just have to focus on getting the twenty-seven outs. How you get there? What's comfortable for people is when you have Justin Verlander and Corey kluber and carrasco's and Kohl's and these guys that that mostly get into the middle to latter parts of the game. But I think you have to play the game the way the way that you have to play it, and whether you're personnel fits that. You can't really have overriding philosophy. I love starters. Why? Because I got good ones. And I think that's that's the easiest way to it's a fall in love with the rotation and have that mindset of I want my service, go deep in the game gathered good, but if not then I gotta have a contingency plan. And and it becomes a bolt. Dave very quickly. If if you if you fall behind or if the if the starter's not at his best Indians ninety one victories during the regular season. Never really challenged in the AL central during the second half of the season. Buster only on the baseball tonight podcast on the team that he likes in this series. I got Cleveland in this series. I it really is gonna come down as much. We're talking about bullpens stuff. It's kind of cool. It's gonna come down. I think to Corey kluber versus Justin Verlander to two Cy Young award winners who gets the best of them. I was looking at the numbers. And and granted some of these words generated at a time when Landers was that his low point with the Troy, but think about some of these numbers Josh Donaldson against Berliner six for eighteen Jose Ramirez. Eleven for twenty seven with five extra base hits five walks. One strikeout. Francisco Lynn door ten for twenty nine. Double a triple A Homer four walks to strikeouts. So some guy key guys in the Indians lineup was good success against Verlinde. All four division series in action on Friday, again, all four games will be heard on ESPN radio. Indians astros. Get things going also air on TBS television to five first pitch from Houston. It's sportscenter allnight on ESPN radio the SPN app. Siriusxm channel eighty first. Ten.

"terry francona" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"This is Dan Patrick meet Friday. It's our two. And in the danettes Dan, Patrick show spent some time with Dirk Novitsky circuses in Tom, Terry Francona joins us in twenty minutes, but Dirk, coming back for his twenty first season looks like he and Vince Carter will be a package deal when they decide to retire play one more year and feels like that'll be it for Dirk. Nowitzki pretty impressive career though. He says that his teammates are calling him seven now because LeBron's going gonna pass him on the all time scoring list. So he's going to be seven, seventh all-time, you know, you'd kill to be seven th on the all-time scoring list so I could take that kind of jab. That'd be pretty good. Hey, that's fine. Call me seven. Yeah. Pulling all his teammates combined. The Mavs are not seventh on the all time scoring list and all their careers together. All right. So Terry Francona will join us. We were debating the possibil-. Of the nationals. If they would trade Bryce Harper, I guess it's not out of the question. I guess it would take something monumental to have them consider doing something like that, but he's a free agent at the end of the year. This a team that is going to cap off a second straight month of sub five hundred baseball. Their third so far this season and. You got the GM Mike Rizzo who's got a really important. You know, this is what this means right now for the future of the nationals in what you do if you do anything, and then what the off season is going to be with ten free agents. The GM told Joel Sherman reporter out of New York that something extreme would have to happen for us to consider moving him. Now he didn't get into the hypothetical. He didn't. He didn't say, well, if somebody gave us five prospects, but extreme means whatever the dodgers gave up for Manny Machado, we would like more than that and the dodgers gave up five prospects for Manny Machado. But you know, do you trade Bryce Harper? What do you get for Bryce Harper? Plus, if you look at you got max Scherzer who's not a young guy would assures her thirty three. You Stephen Strasburg going on the DL. You got a manager who's on the hot seat? Yes. Mclovin. What if you had Bryce Harper in a potent lineup where you couldn't pitch around and he can't hit it all, but he's still leading the National League of walks. If he was between like Stanton and judge, you'd have to throw fastballs or if you had or the dodgers lineup or the, he could be really ridiculous in the second half if you had to pitch them. Okay. But you're picking the Yankees and the dodgers the Phillies with Hoskins? Well, I know, but, but you know, what are the Yankees have to give now they've been, they've been trained and they got Britain and hap. So they traded some prospects. The dodgers just gave up five to get Manny Machado. So who do you have left that those teams? I think the cubs could be the dark horse here where the own the cubs might be able to swing something. They picked up a Cole hamels here. Kris Bryant is on the ten day l. but you know, Chicago might might be the team to keep an eye out, but I don't think anything's going to happen here with Bryce Harper. Dan, your cats, rake labor Toya's. It's got to be, you can't glade glare breath. You can't trade glacier toys. A Yankee fans like. Thank you. Know we we, there's no way we can give up labor tours. Yes. I drive home today with just New York radio Keeble. They're going to say that they should get replace Aaron, judge. It's going to be like, well, we can get, you know, the biggest week at Bryce Harper for backup outfielder. You'd have.

"Network league beasley topped the our terry francona next hour my thoughts on jay cutler coming up later on this hour but let's talk western commerce basketball from moment golden state warriors took a giant step a giant step closer to winning the twenty nineteen western conference finals yesterday now i'm not going to say we should just hand the trophy to them right now you know what screw would go ahead hand the trophy to them right now because barring a series of unforeseen and horrible injuries the golden state warriors or twenty nine thousand nine western conference champs go ahead hook 'em up right now with the hardware just do it and that's before i've seen boogie cousins in his return from the achilles injury i have no idea how he comes back i don't need to know it's also without waiting to see jonas drako and waiting to see that signing is official i don't need to wait for that either because as intriguing as those moves are and i liked them both it's got nothing to do with golden state it's all about the rockets might take all about the rockets the rockets are the reason that i'm willing to crown golden state the western conference champs right now next season because of the rockets or who the rockets were because last year's rockets had the best record in the west last year's rockets came within inches of knocking out the warriors and is every rockets fan will tell you if chris paul stays healthy that series might have ended differently there were up three games to two they were headed back home they had a chance to finish really two chances to finish the champs were on the ropes the champs rashly taking a standing eight but the rockets did not show them out and from the looks of things their window to win a title may have already slammed shut because this year's rockets team will not look very much like last year's rockets team yes they'll have james harden and chris paul and clint cappella you may not be happy now capellas looking for a fat stack good alvin that was tight looking for a fat stack he may not get that but he should be back however trevor aretha not so much he was introduced in phoenix last week luke a moutain also gone he signed with the clippers now listen you may look at these two moves and think they're not richter scale rocky moves but they're brutal losses for a team that was that close and the reason they are they're versatile guys with length who get after it on defense due to can stick which is anybody that you put them on on one end of the floor and then stretch the floor in drain of three at the other so losing a guy like that is bad losing to guys like that is brutal i'm gonna question or get into the question as to why didn't resign luke when it seemed like they would have had a break the bank to get him because there's something more troubling on the horizon rocket fans because here's a sentence from a tweet that's gonna keep off houston up at night and i quote houston is determined designed carmelo anthony once he becomes free and okay see sources tell espn that's not a wood farm that's something completely different that's actually a warning shot the sign of impending doom armageddon houston is determined designed carmelo anthony it's kind of like that colossal water in jurassic park which shakes is the t rex approaches now before i continue let me just stress this rockets gm daryl morey knows more about basketball and assembling a roster then pretty much anybody on the planet not named bob myers he's set a goal a beating the warriors this year that was his mission and he may have come through with that that may have happened if not for a tweaked hamstring this guy really is a certified genius and if anybody has ever earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to putting together a team it's daryl morey by this is carmelo anthony we're talking about thirty four year old carmelo anthony coming off a rough season okay see carmelo anthony guys now liability on one end of the floor in totally worthless on the other end a guy who's shell of his former self and seemingly incapable of accepting his role of who and what he's become if i'm looking replace a pair of three in guys komo anthony is not exactly on the.
