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. We're GONNA hit a three run at home this morning so we don't have to do all the other things so. Let's get all of this out of the way right. Now Tim Cook while you're here with me. Yankees twins you. Have you have one in that series. I've got the Yankees over the twin yes with the warning. I say it again. 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. They've already use sure they're they've already Strasbourg people. They can get them back in time. I just don't think they held it too. I was worried shows a look tied at the floor four. Oh five in his last night I mean fifteen and won his last pitch and fit then it was I think it was at seventy seven pitches and he looked absolutely gassed. What does that about yeah? He's he's he's been hurt for portions of the year and he's had a little trouble getting that rhythm back in September and now in October and he is so max effort for on every single pitch when everything isn't working properly even he can get in trouble because almost nobody's better than him.

And what was that last night Tim Kirch in? How would you describe it? Using your veteran words men. Ills. How would you describe what happened between the bucks and the Sixers last night? I've heard on your words, I think it was thinking no nobody to hang in is a bigger than that smaller than that take it slightly smaller than a frac fracking. Oh, come on. It's a Frankish. A freaking gets fracas. Let's go ahead and play the sound from ninety seven point five the fanatic. Joel. So he's just with the phone. Oh by he just fired a bowl poodles are his face of Eric Bledsoe.

We gotta win like Armageddon that what is that sounds like malice at the palace the highest form of rage. You'll will be. The. Oh. Who goes her face? Eric. So he's got to be tossed on it here. Are you kidding me? Believable. I have not seen a violent act like that year. God. All right said you wanna change your answer, Tim Kirch and based on that call from ninety seven point five, the fanatic. I think my favorite part was there's that blitz. Oh. Mine is just Heathrow's allows boot and older. No. But there was in the middle of it. But there's that Bledsoe. With the ball. Here's the fire pole poodles. I so change your answer. Tim, what was it based on that call like if you didn't see it? Right. Just call. You heard the call right that that's a broom it is. Thank the way. We. Everyone is a practice. It was a brouhaha hide escalated to a brouhaha then you're on with Tim Kirk. Go ahead. Ben. The going guys the Kansas City Royals are tightening alert than being I wondering what you think. Ten row mandis kid with the royals. Yeah. He's really good young player. He can really run the at an inside the park, home or the other night. We're hanging around the basis in about fifteen seconds. He's going to be really good. And he's just gotta be with a better team. So we can all see our really good. He's going to be Abraham you're on with coach. Go ahead. Abraham. Hey, Tom, jelly, hanger, PB and J strawberry. Grape also smooth or crunchy peanut butter. Great love peanut butter, smooth for sure and definitely strawberry. Over grape. It spreads a little easier. 'cause it's a little bit thicker that wait a minute. That shocking on the second at lebatardshow put them both on the poll. Plays crunchy or smooth peanut butter and also strawberry a great. I think you've gotta go grape. There. Don't you? America would go grape there. No, I I don't understand what you hear his reasoning because a lot easier to spread over the peanut butter. Grape is is yummy defend your choice Kirch in. No, I when you put the grape on which I really liked by the way, sometimes it can spill out the side of the sandwich and end up on your pants. But when you put the strawberry on their it connects to the peanut butter a little bit better. And you have a cleaner lunch in front of you. I mean, that's solid analysis..
"tim kirk" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"Next pain in Spain and Fitz beta fit, Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz with you on ESPN radio the espionage up and Sirius XM channel eighty when we get back to the baseball stuff because Tim Kirk cousins gonna enlighten us on many things but getting back to football for a minute. Sometimes like, for instance, when the official pro shop for the chargers sends out an Email that says get your ficials San Diego Chargers merchandise, even though they're now the LA chargers, sometimes it takes a while to adjust to a team moving or maybe it takes a while to understand the nuances and intricacies of a fan base who lost their team to another city and really get a feel for whether or not they're in the mood for a joke and bring this up here on Spain and fits because Southwest Airlines thought they were being clever, and maybe appealing to fans of of a variety of cities of, but maybe they have a little. Something to learn about NFL relocation because they sent out a what they thought was a clever tweet that said is your team headed to the big game. We've added extra flights between the home cities and AT L parentheses that includes us Saint Louis, and it did not go well, actually deleted it. Because that's how much there was outcry from Saint Louis fans as many fans as might still be sticking with the Rams despite them leaving fits a whole lot of Rams fans that they'd rather watch paint dry. Well, and I gotta feel like sightless I feel like southwest was being opened. They're like, hey, then glued you everybody. Come one, come all. Like that's one of those moments where you feel like ROY. They said specifically we've added extra flights between the home cities and AT L. That includes you Saint Louis, not, you know, I get this. I just feel like whoever runs the social media. There might not be a big football fan might not understand what it means to lose a franchise. Because again for south west, it's either that or it was just really like an awful awful awful joke because Saint Louis is rightfully, you know, they're angry, and I can't blame them. I mean, it's it's hard when you've spent your entire life. You know for so many people rooting for team. And then the team has just taken away from you. And look we have the argument all day long about. Why teams relocate and and what they're looking for? And what's not being provided, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But at the end of the day, what you have a lot of fans that have spent money time energy and fandom rooting for the the Rams in Saint Louis that are now watching this saying, what might have been what could have been and they're watching this team and as much as they may have seen this coming doesn't make it hurt any less if you live in Saint Louis, and you were Rams fan. Yeah. I remember feeling bad for a specifically Chris long because he had been on the Rams for a while during the lean years and living in Saint Louis, and then he's off the team when they moved to L A and start winning and I wasn't poor guy. But he went to the eagles. He won a Super Bowl. I was fine. The fans on the other hand are stuck in St Louis without a team. And it does sound like there are certainly a handful of Saint louisianans sate loosens losing Louis ins people from the St Louis we'll be watching the game. But a lot of them. Mm are saying. They would literally rather watch paint dry anything but the game. And I guess let's put it out on the one eight.

"You. JD Martinez with ESPN's Tim Kirk to your point India, scored meaning the Red Sox thirty six of their sixty eight months scored this postseason have been with two outs including nine of twelve in the World Series and all four there. Runs were scored with two outs in game two clutch, man. And it's not just at the plate. It's also in the field the Benintendi again. Leaping acrobatic ballerina type grab in front of the green monster. You couple that with the the diving stabby had that if you've got a lefty. You're not making that catch in Houston with the bases loaded. Maybe still playing right? All three months would have scored a different series. No doubt. And they find ways in that clutch moment to get a big play in the field a big punch out or timely hit. And you wonder why they have one hundred eight wins most of any team in the bigs. They find ways to get the timely punch out make big time play in the field or get a timely hit in a timely hits the post season coming with two outs. I wonder I wonder we're going gonna see that from the dodgers. Would that pressure being down to nothing because it's easy to say? We're going home everything should be fine. But that team and the other side they've been road warriors. Without Mel Gibson without Tina, turn on AM babe are undefeated on the road in the postseason so far there clearly to me smelling blood knowing they may we get this game three those guys over they will give it up. They may not even get a game off of us. And this could be a sweet I want not seeing this. Should be on the minds of the dodger players, but that sense of urgency has to be there more than ever before. And that's not to say wasn't there in the first two games in Boston. I clearly believe that was the case with the dodgers. The Boston Red Sox have been a better baseball team in those clouds moments the two series lead justifies that. But now the Boston Red Sox to meet really don't have any pressure. They know the cable up when they go on the road because they've done so far this year. The Boston Red Sox not dodge not played a team of their caliber, all you like the right size have done this already. The Astros are better than the Los Angeles. Dodgers they showed that in the regular season. I know the stakes are higher in the World Series. But they already rented that kind of team the dodge I've not run into this kind of team that no matter what they do. The Red Sox seen heavy solution any problems the dodgers able to throw it them. Operas back to starting pitching coming up in game three. That's it. It's that simple. So get ready, man. I mean, what what are you twenty three starts eight and five sub three Yara? It's on your shoulders, baby. What are you got? Because he's going to have to be a horse game three for the dodgers and tend to your point about as far as pressure and whatnot. And this this squad. They have a great combination of youth and veterans David phrase. He's been there, man. I mean, he won the World Series. He got the timely hits in two thousand eleven against the Texas Rangers. I mean you bring up games game six to a ranger fan. And they're going bleeping freeze. So they don't believe in care about with David free. Does my point is you have guys that have been tested. And when the moment is big they have delivered. And they have just, you know, just just naive youth also out there. So there's some guys out there that that this naive enough to say, you know, what we're good. I'm not buying. I look I do that squad. And then you got great great stories like Matt camp. Who was the old has been the ultimate pro. I mean, he was a cast off. He ends up being an all star to me L I R you sound like, you're right. The dodgers off. I'm not yet. I think they win game three. I really do. You have more faith in them. And the guys who have not producing a situation like this more than I do. I've seen that other team has done in the other side. Cosby this season going on the road and winning all five games? So far in the postseason. The Boston Red Sox have more faith in that team going winning a game three than the dodgers have more faith enough stories notwithstanding. I just to me it's all about your next starting pitcher. And I like the dodgers they're throwing out there on the hill over a volley for the Red Sox. So. It's that's just my opinion. Again, I'm a guy who's been on the road watching football for the last, college and pro football news. For the last nine weeks. But that's just a big old gut feeling, and it's a big old gut. I'm all about your next starting pitcher. And I think these guys are enough. Have enough that's enough youth and I'll take report seller. Walker bueller because on the road with Walker Beulah. I'll take my chances with Portillo's not going against Baylor. I think four is pitching matchup on Friday. On the other side game three match up on Friday, still take. I'll still take Walker you hesitate a little bit after hearing about. North of four. Either way. Walker? Bueller by chance look better better now and gave steak dinner on just game three alone. I think I picked the Red Sox to win the World Series. And once it does this match up was set and done, right. But I think we're going to get a series dodgers bunch isn't going to fold chances in game. Three hope. You're right. I trust the Red Sox more going to gain three than I do the dodgers real quick. Although the ratings were game one in look too. Good lowest viewership for a World Series game one since two thousand fourteen. And imagine that they wanted a major league baseball. Now that one that is that that that goes to show you rob Manfred Commissioner of major league baseball. What kind of a problem you have right now, you get the to the biggest markets in the country. To fan base that love baseball. At least one definitely the. Two brands and yet lowest viewership for a World Series game one since two thousand fourteen. Wow, no football on and no football on anywhere. The quality. And how that word has taken on new meaning evolving, David price. The Boston Red Sox and the state of baseball. That's next on ESPN radio. The Red.

"Radio and that that crack of the bat came five hours in fifteen minutes after the start of the game insert comment about the length of baseball games. But in the postseason, we kinda throw that out it becomes endearing when you get to this time of year, the second longest postseason game in dodger history. Only behind the five hour and seventeen game five hundred seventeen minute game of game five of the World Series from last season. So in good company, but it took extras to decide the winner here and extra is probably going to be the theme of the night. Because when you look at that the dodgers taking a lot of extra swings. And even more extra misses I heard Tim Kirk in and the rest of our baseball Sunday night. Baseball crew in the baseball the night guy say Sunday, the baseball the night crew talking about sort of lamenting, but you can see begrudgingly giving way the same way. My father talks begrudgingly about the NFL giving way successfully to rule changes the benefit offense, so too. Do you hear these guys sort of big grudgingly acknowledged that the way of the world right now in major league baseball, look something like this? The dodgers. Set a franchise record for most strikeouts in a postseason game for the second consecutive game. Now the dodgers struck out seventeen times in game four besting the previous record of fourteen set in game three. Which is just remarkable. How remarkable the dodgers have played two hundred and twenty six postseason games and three of their five highest strikeout totals have come in this series been incredible. Now, one guy out there swinging and missing and helping his team. Their midseason acquisition. Manny machado. After the game. Spoke with our own Pedro Gomez many tried to describe the.

"Deadline hoping they could improve their bullpen without causing friction in their clubhouse the defending World Series champion Astros did acquire Roberto Osuna from. The Blue Jays can Giles, and a pair prospects go. The other way Osuna an all-star season ago finished with, thirty nine saves there's no doubt he as the talent. On the mound but he hasn't pitched in the majors since. May six he's been serving a seventy five day suspension, under major league baseball is domestic. Violence policy ESPN major league baseball insider Tim Kirk should earlier on sportscenter I'm a, little, confused by this and I'm a little uncomfortable with this also look the, Astros needed a closer and they acquired a young closer. Who has great stuff but that is, only part of the story here now they're gonna have. To sell everyone in Houston on how they can go. Acquire someone who's serving a seventy five games suspension. And it still is. You said not complete so this just speaks again to what, teams will do to win so here is at the crux of. That potential clubhouse issued the Astros have zero tolerance policy on domestic violence and released former prospect Dan Rae Vasquez in March after video. Leaked of him hitting his, girlfriend Houston pitchers Justin Verlander. And Lance mccullers used social media to voice their disgust, about Vasquez action and the video became public Astros as.

How deadline dominoes will fall following Machado deal
"Two hours, before the first pitch we. Go every Saturday. During the baseball, season we do it down on the. Farm reports and so were hitting them all and we're going to, cherry pick a couple of guys out clubbing yes Brendan Rogers we will talk about him We're going to hit all of the farm clubs and just to, a little half way were report essentially a midseason update on a few of, the guys that are down in the farm system and maybe some of these. Guys met Rogers going to be one of them we're going to. See, when they, expand the rosters to forty And is that ever going to go away Talks about it a lot last season The number got done with that that that won't, happen until the next collective bargaining agreement which. I believe is in twenty twenty one I get them confused with the NFL and the NBA NHL all the. Time to. The CBS's roll around here all right let's close the book on what has happened though in the, National League West and the, biggest story not only in the, division not only in the National League but in major league baseball and what could be probably one of the biggest traits that we have seen Midseason leading up to a trade deadline in, many years and that is, all star shortstop Manny Machado going, over to the dodgers egos get prospects and they weren't even really the absolute top prospects of the dodgers I think LA really made out, very very well ESPN's Tim Kirk and, talked about it, says, the dodgers pretty good and got better I think he's. A, huge difference maker I think he makes them the team to beat now in the nationally. The dodgers were pretty guard good anyway Kirk chin ads though that. The dodgers need to add to their pitching staff now whether, it's a starting rotation or in the bullpen they are. Going to need help, there Machado's, not the guy that's going to get them, over the top Machado is, a, guy that when the playoffs to roll around he's the guy that's gonna win. The game for. You he and Matt camp Justin Turner but to have a guy in the lineup let's go to get four five six ABC's, potentially in a playoff game and, the dodgers a play in game they are, wildcard Gabay, are looking at a seven game series and have a guy like Manny Machado in the lineup and was defense to. Boot that's pretty good adding one guy. When you're two games up doesn't mean you're going to sprint away from, everybody but it could happen. We watch, it happen with, the, Bax but this is the dodgers competence that they're going. To, make the playoffs and they needed that one more piece that one more bat to really. Put him over the top they were in the World Series last. Year three zero three seven one three eight five eight five, so that puts a rap on a five prospects from. The dodgers off the, Orioles the, dodgers look pretty darn good don't they coming, up for you we are, going, to go down on the farm and we will do that and we will. Talk about rotate. You have thoughts who should be the guy to start for the Rockies We head. Into the second half of the season tomorrow night what do you think Is. It just back to John gray great last Saturday and you go back up there it's just the way that we've been rolling what he's to Kyle Freeland up there or. Is it somebody else Okay yeah It could go just about. Any way so we'll do that here in just a little bit, three, zero, three, seven, one, three, eight, five eight five talked about in the all star game and how there were ten home runs and twenty five strikeouts in how at the mid point of the season overall, in baseball there are more strikeouts than there are hits or the Rockies are in that trend, quite yet but. They're. Close Season to date they've got eight hundred, twenty two strikeouts Trevor story leads away. He's got one hundred and two strikeouts Now the Rockies also again let's go to the power number's Iraqis have. Five guys that are. In double digits for home runs already Leading the way as Nollet Arnaut twenty three home runs Trump story has twenty Charlie Blackmon with nineteen Ian Desmond with eighteen and Carlos Gonzales with eleven you.

Ten homers and nine singles in this game welcome to baseball two thousand eighteen but I, did talk to scooter Janette after, the game and he said isn't this what people want isn't as what they want ten homers excitement like this so instead of the stars looking at it, like it shouldn't be a? Home run derby they're saying this was an exciting game extra inning game I, would answer that with yeah we like the homers but we want a lot of other things mixed in it's either Homer or strike I wouldn't mind seeing some position players making some. Plays every now, and then get a one that we saw. What's made when Joey Votto dropped the ball and and then.

"Greg cody of the miami herald in with us today as he is every tuesday chris andersen birdman anderson is going to be through here coming through the studio twelve thirty eastern i'm told the tim kirk shon stole the celebrity softball game and stole the night i'd like more details i didn't watch any of what happened yesterday timmy was he was fantastic i mean he's just listen he's a lovable guy he's a really funny guy and i think a lot of people learn by watching that softball game tim kurchatov the age of sixty one i believe he's always very good he's always been a good after he could scoop man he had some hard lookouts where he hit liners right at people he had a fielder's choice where he was on first base and then moved over to second base scored second to home on a ball that just got through the infield on telling you he sprinted around that guy has jet he curved base perfectly got hit by the ball on his way home and he i don't think he smiled once this was business for her chin yesterday in those cal ripken games they were legendary cal ripken games curtains five four and he would not just hold his own he would work those games that involve cal ripken and his celebrity and athlete front billions right this was a business trip for tim kirch and he took it very very seriously at here's the thing i found fascinating bill did you notice this everyone all the celebrities outside sports outside of espn they wanted to be around in kerch and everyone loves the guy oh yeah he was the star of the night and he was playing second base on defense tim knows all the rules no one's gonna cheat in these games and get by my ten with these cheating and technicalities there's a play at second base tim catches the ball turns to go to the tag guy slides into second base and there was like oh it's him you know he's like he was out he's like there's no sliding in this game what do they do they reviewed it which i didn't even know happened in celebrity all sorts saw softball games and they call the guy out at second base and then tim of course there's like i know that i knew he was out a slight either the gave him the hook kicked tossed about have you did yeah yeah timmy was furious van for sliding tim kirch gets furious about anything oh you haven't seen them play softball man i haven't heard him on here every week you'll hear him in and our he loses his temper all the time but there is a new i national embassador for an anti bullying organization in los angeles called boo two bullying and the first national investor is richie incognito that's a thing that's happened at right now last time you heard from richie incognito it sound like he was going crazy to jim throwing dumbbells until thirties game that's what that sound like he retired from the nfl and in retiring said look my body's breaking down my liver doesn't work my my organs don't work and so the richie incognito has been one of the funniest stories around here for many years and sometimes it's a funny story that comes with some sad it's very confusing it's hard to navigate because we spent a lot of time laughing for example at the original richie incognito controversy which came complete with a listener song we like to farm out some of our creativity here and so if you remember the original reason that perhaps you know the name richie incognito it's because he bullied a teammate jonathan martin but he did so out of love one of the strongest listener songs ever if you weren't a part of that journey with us it's when we joined espn it's when we became national the first story thrown on our lap was richie incognito and it became an unholy hell of coverage and there was a task force created yeah and the task force can we get that list of task force people please because they went and tried to get everyone in football with integrity and they found like eight people i know tony dungee and curtis martin we're on that for sure anytime you need integrity you just call up tony dungy don shula was on the list yep i believe jason taylor dan marino were they on the list yet oh yeah of course curtis martin rather inexplicably on the list he was.
