Oh absolutely governor. Whatever we gotta get to a couple of other things. I want to get to this trying to get to it all week but and then we'll get to your new feud which i'm enjoying so far off. Did you see what terry francona son nick francona. Who's a ex marine. And he's worked in baseball for a number of organizations. He's kind of a candidate guy. He's kind of a truth teller he got. He's the one that talked about alex. Birsh do go the scumbag. Red sox the guy they traded. Mookie betts for he was in arizona when when was involved in that Deal with a young runaway girl got beaten up and they took pictures and anyway he was the one that told the truth. Who kind of. Let the cat out of the bag. The gave was covering it up. And i respect. The guy don't know him but he sounds like a guy who doesn't can't stand can't tolerate a cover up aurelie. The latest story in cleveland is that they allowed mickey callaway when he was a pitching coach for terry francona. To a sexually harassed. Lots of women you know he is thing was sending don pictures which you know that sexual harassment. Is it welcomed dong pictures before and the re one. The reason we got in trouble is the wa- husband of a woman. He said don pictures to confronted him or confronted the indians and according to nick francona terry francona tito beloved. Tito knowing in boston covered it up or allowed to happen. Then mickey callaway. The jig is up. everyone knows. he's a dirt bag. There's all kinds of women coming forward. But he puts a statement out. Nick francona which i couldn't believe and he just throws dad to the wolves. He says you know his father. A story broken. The athletic which is a problem. Lots of people didn't read. Sartre excerpted it was a great story. On how calloway's arrest all kinds of women and he. So he's sending out without asking. I like can i send you one A good question. I don't know if anyone asked them if permission but he said i confronted my father and it's clear he simply doesn't get it. I'm hesitant to get into personal details of my family situation. But my father and i do not have a particularly close relationship largely as a result of disagreements about his conduct some of which has been reported over the years and some of which has not. Now he's talking about. I assume when he left the red sox and the red sox smear campaign was that he was taking drugs so he was. You know living in a hotel. He was banging everything. I mean he was out of control and we all at least i did. I kind of like frank. Kona did necessary like the ownership. Just said it was kind of despicable that they that they lodged this Started this Smear campaign on his way out the door it seemed kind of sleazy well apparently Mick francona his son the marine.

And everybody's cool with it because everybody knows that like obviously this guy's not in charge he doesn't know what the hell is doing and eighty million. People allegedly voted for. Oh i shouldn't say that. Eddie definitely definitely voted for eighty million definitely voted for him and there was no foul play at all. It was one hundred percent legit and he earned it. Deserved an all eighty million of very very happy with the choice I i i i mean we got to be carefully. We've been flagged for cunanan support. So let me just say that. I think he's completely lucid and coherent. And he's going to be one of the great presidents of all time and if he if he isn't. I trust every i trust nance with all my heart. Everything about auto is he's gymnasts because gymnasts i mean obviously does golf. He does football. I mean he's a big star. Gymnasts we now know is running the country. That is scary. Yeah let's see you. Thank you and i'm happy to take questions of as you. I'm supposed to do nance whatever you want me to do. Didn't take questions you got that is. It's one thing to say. No mr president we got. We got an appointment. We gotta go somewhere. We don't have time. we're out of time. They just bring the curtain down on this poor old man they just i mean that's not really his fault he's at. I'm happy to take questions so he was willing to take questions. And you know they can Arrange it so only friendly questions are asked and he doesn't have to risk barrasso but they decided a better thing to do. Just flip the switch and bring the curtain down that is million the way you know her name is gonna last year is gonna last four years. I guess was eighteen months. Initially that was the over. Under you. And i talk about it before the over under eighteen months. I'm going way under now because there's why chain like it's working fine. They have this idiot. Upfront friendly guy that you know. Joe miracle likes joe and he has no clue. Brilliant when you think about it he just isn't running anything. There's somebody behind the scenes pulling everything. Whoever's behind the scenes america wouldn't like so the just throw joe up there and you pull the strings and he says what the behind the strings are thinking and it works out well. I was wondering we checked. Like the nancy actually said take everything. I said nancy. Nancy pelosi. i don't know why we didn't pick up on that one. yeah yeah. He was speaking to the Democratic for the house democrats. He's so nancy. Nancy pelosi who older than he is is putting the curtain down to prevent him from answering any questions Well i'll tell you why. And i think it was Dana perino used to be a press secretary Press spokesman whatever for bush. She said this one thing that will upset the media the media obviously totally completely in the tank for the man but they will not like the fact that he never faces them never takes questions never stamps. Before them and make state. I mean they will not like the fact that he is being protected shielded from them. Even is amazing when you consider a guy like trump faces the media. The first question is why you lie so much and everything is hostile. Everything is is negative. He knows if he goes before the media or wife i was leading around by the elbow knows if he goes for the media. They'll say gee what is enchanted you the most about being in the white house. What's is vanilla. Still your favourite milkshake. I mean they will absolutely slurp him up but he still won't take the risk. What does that tell you. Do about joe about joe that he that he won't go before the media when he knows the media is there for one reason only to rub his feet and make him feel good and make him look good. They're part of the same team. Any still won't go before them and take biden is no longer the vegas odds on favourite and looking at it right now to win the democratic nomination kamala is. She's plus two hundred joe's plus two twenty five then is elizabeth warren. No but do you know who. The overwhelming on the republican side is overwhelming. It's trump but trump. i take you won't when they took when they took him out. one poll had donald trump. Junior's the favorite of christ and the power the trump gins. But i think this in a long way to go to santa says doing great easy meetings like third or fourth on that list pence's on that list. Ted cruz is on that list. But i think among actual republicans who are paying attention. I think to santa's is now the favourite. I've known different. Florida would ban if that drugged out socialist one an talk about talk about minimum avoiding a disaster. I saw someone tweet that out the other day. He is what almost happened. They show him passed out naked with the with the hooker. And he's a truck like applied or whatever drug paraphernalia. That goes almost governor of florida. And right now if he were governor. It'd be shut down and It'd be if the whole thing it'd be does that. They'd be unemployment and businesses going under and everything else they. They dodged a bullet and they like our tweeden. Jerry it is the control group it is the oasis of freedom like people are literally fleeing to i. I've never met so many people that are going to florida all the time. Now it's like it's literally a different country down. It's free america in. I say this all the time because people When they tweet a reuter talk about restaurants going under or whatever any business gyms they say because of the pandemic. this restaurant is closing. And i do this. And i know it's tedious but i'm going to continue doing us a correction. It is not because of the pandemic that restaurant would be alive. And well if it were in orlando or tampa jacksonville. If that same restaurant that you know is near. Boston gardner fenway. It's gone or in florida. It would be doing fine so thus it's not the pandemic it's the governor in our case we have a crazy liberal tie-in tyrant charlie baker. Who's not going to be happy till he destroys every restaurant. And i said the stay shattuck and i talked about it and i know you'll enjoy turtaboi. This is gonna be fun watching. All the states. Open up watching liberals lose their mind. Texas opens up for business. Which kinda surprising that had already opened. gets rid of the mask mandate and immediately all these limousine liberals these elitist pompous holes like like gregg popovich and baidoa rock. That half a moron says That greg. Abbott signed a death warrant for the state of texas and the republicans are death cult. That wants to kill people. They don't care president call them neanderthals jerry. The true neanderthal. Thinking is to open up your konami by the way you wanna talk you. If you want to know just what phonies these people are. And i i. I'm i'm hesitant to call baidoa phony. Because he's too stupid to be a phone you know. He can't he doesn't understand he's a phony it's what he's doing. Don't i totally underestimated. I think he looks like a kennedy and he's dumb like kennedy. I mean in. If he didn't look like kennedy he'd be it'd be working at a car wash. But anyway this i want to get to this item before we get to a couple of things In in cuomo gov performance yesterday finally cuomo earned his emmy yesterday crying on cue But it ain't gonna work. But but this to me should infuriate everybody. And i i understand for some reason. We're so partisan and you know the the biden people hate the trump people in the democrats and republicans in the cnn. People hate fox people. But shouldn't we all agree that this story while we are you know. People like o'rourke organ popovich. You're saying must remain in lockdown while we have governors like baker and whitmer newsom still locked us still keeping kids out of school still destroy businesses in the name of science. Should we all agree. It's insane that they released the number one hundred eight illegal aliens in texas at the border were released into this country. After testing positive for covid. They got on buses. They went to north carolina. Virginia new jersey among other places. Good they were just the fact the fact that a country be let them get on a bus..

"Steve when you had your piff Unie about Michael. That led you to write that. How aware were most people of the movements that he had made? Was there a lot of buzz around him? At that point in the season because banning average was around two hundred. And that's what people look at first right. If you saw that he was hitting one ninety eight you would think you would think he's a failure right. There are stories of other major leaguers who had terrible minor league seasons but clearly. They were showing talent in the team stuck weather. And maybe the case with Michael Jordan. So what happened next for hidden and his baseball career. What happened next was he went to the Arizona. Fall League which is a higher level baseball. Even the southern league any to fifty five. He was clearly tracking towards at least a promotion to triple A. And maybe a call up to Chicago in nineteen ninety five but has it happened. Baseball was in a work stoppage. For the first time in American history a union is about to go on strike even though its members make an average salary of a million dollars apiece and Michael didn't want any part of that. This labor crisis has the potential matching severity and longevity. The players walk out of eighteen ninety which lasted a full year. So when the strike hit Michael didn't even consider crossing the picket line to get his chance. No he was A. He was a player wrap himself. He was not about to go against the grain there so he decided to give up baseball. Tito Francona Mike Barnett. Maintain to this day. He could've made the major leagues. What about you do you think he would have made it and how good could have bit? I? I think he could have made the major leagues. I'm not sure he would have been a starting outfielder. You know I look. At the current landscape of baseball Michael Jordan would have been alike. Michael Taylor nationals outfielder. Michael Taylor a Grand Slam home. Run Fast and very grateful and has a little pop. Goes Taylor Paul's in left field? And he will score to one for the running wild nationals to see because of that strike and the timing of it all Michael went back to basketball and well. The rest is history agency and play out on the stance about you know his first full season back the Bulls set a record for the most wins in NBA history. They won the title ear. Spoiler alert the next two seasons after that as well when he initially retired in one. Thousand Nine Three. You mentioned. He did it in part largely. He was burned out. How did that season in baseball affect his mindset for coming back to the NBA? Did he get what he needed out of? It definitely definitely.

Probably won't get in, but he's going to have his regular season candidacy, which is you guys accurately noted falls, well short of the standards. It'll get a boost from some of this stuff, probably not enough. But, you know who really knows about the hall of fame anymore? When people like Jack Morris and Harold, Baines get in. It's just really hard. If John Lester finds himself on a committee, fifteen or twenty years from now where the, the committee's made up of a THEO Epstein, and Joe Madden question. Maybe Ranko David Ross and Tito Francona then, you know, maybe he's in the hall of fame. Why were there? No diving stops made by Dallas. Brayden is the ball. Boy, good question. I received I'm actually question the effort and commitment. It does I received exactly one bowl. One ball down there. One fucking ball. They have you ever heard. Have you ever heard the song lose yourself by Eminem? Yeah. I did what happens one moment. Yeah. You get one moment you're gonna capture just let it slip. I did. No, I captured it it was a forty six hop. Dribbler off the bat of Margaret Simeone hit the tarp and rolled to me and stopped directly at my feet. Charging. All right. He's going to say charge it. Now the guy's safe. I feel with a catcher's glove. We'll ask a lot of excuse me. The glove glove glove. Catcher's mitt now, your career is definitely going in the right way. Ballboy.

Please explain to him. How stupid he is. Thanks, boys. Love the podcast, all our fucking fantastic. That's a good way to get your question. Go ahead yet. So did he say? Walk off home run compared to buzzer beater. Just oh he he did not. Do he did not say that? I do think that's an important distinction because for as much as I love baseball. There's no way you can convince me that a regular grand slam. And like the fourth inning is more exciting than a game winning shot. It's yet. No, it's not as exciting, but I think also like the element of a grand slam anytime. The bases are loaded. You're like who's who's on day everyone? No, there's no other situation in baseball where everyone is thinking homerun, regardless of who's at the plate. The basis are loaded your mmediately thinking France pation breach. These two. And then when you get the pay off your like because game winning shot in basketball, we've got a strong idea of who's going to take that shot. Yeah. We know when it's going to happen because the clock is fucking telling us for baseball like Jared said, you've got the bags juiced and your -ticipant eating the entire at bat pitch. You're hanging on and it doesn't matter if it's GIO Urszula he of tin career homers stepping to the plate for the first time this season. Because you just never know. You just never know those fucking baseball's got more hop in their hind legs in kangaroo these days. So you just never know. And then you add in the element of walk-off game winner. Not even close. I would agree walk off grand slam over buzzer beater, ten times out of ten all day all day every day. I just don't know..
