"And you'll see some amazing gambling opportunities if you have a ticket you go you know what that tickets close to cashing put up a proper shopping get paid now let's go to the phones so we're gonna go out west because this guy why he calls an a Lister line I don't know because he's got the studio line but I love that he calls him as a man of the people on the listener line he got up early shockingly his name is Nick free dell he's in San Francisco and we love him dearly Matt good so baby the gentleman for you only for you hello I am good I'm good I'm calling it the answer is no he's not coming on I've tried all of you okay the end and we can get to that because many of my questions that I have watched you might relate to the old Tom rickets but first of all I have to tell you that I'm proud because you have completely one eighty from your staff from a few years ago and Sammy isn't getting back with the cubs unless he has your support in some form or fashion so I am proud of you because you're using the radio show and the TV show took the horse for some kind of relationship with the deal so that is correct but as I'm watching last night and you know I I I was really bored to tell you the truth but I I wrote down a few questions that I was hoping you could help me with yeah first and foremost why does this topic matter so much to the rickets I don't know that's why I had said to you Nick and I said it this morning that if he was in the running to be the new third base coach or the legal code nobody thought that no but no fan was sitting there going you know what you know what I don't want that job yeah two years ago that was the talk that he did from who who said that there were people in the organization that if they could very this thing together and clear the air that he would go back to working for the cubs okay but that has made it clear to me yeah he said let me look me in the eye goes I got a home business where we build pre fab homes in the Dominican that's doing really well I've got this diabetic company I'm doing really well there I don't need their money right and it made it very clear okay so that leads me to the second part of this yep so if Sammy says I don't want a job I just want to be welcome back I want to throw a pitch out of things stretch whatever come to a game again why won't won't Tom Ricketts talked about this why is it this one great statement Sammy Sosa knows what he needs to do and that's it no follow ups no nothing all these years later the only thing Tom Ricketts will say is the same regurgitated crap regarding a reunion with Sammy so why won't he talk about this on the record I don't know I've asked him and I have a very good relationship working with Tom yes you do you do I've interviewed him a billion times I like the guys very much and he brought a World Series to our favorite team any stay Wrigley Field and all of that but I cannot I've tried I'm one of my goals before I ride off into the sunset Nick is I want to be there that day and it helped to facilitate putting these two sides back together again not for say me to be the manager of the team president or the head of business operations are the ticket manager I just want to see him walk on that field have tears in his eyes and have ninety seven percent of the crowd there cheer him recap this is what makes no sense reduce wasn't even there and Danny is mentioned this many times over the years right you're telling me that in all those highlights last night in rewatching ninety eight and all the other years the Congress wasn't once for Sammy Sosa well it's funny that you said that because Tom has always said and I remember interviewing we did inside look on TV this got to be seven eight right after he bought the team alright maybe right after he hired field that's still a long time ago I member him saying I set the bleachers all the time because I was in school at university of Chicago and I met my wife in the bleachers I last night I wanted to see if all my god can you imagine if there was a shot of Tom cheering in the bleachers as the ball flew out there a young Tom like but doubt that that's the problem that's why I'm so frustrated because now this documentary got some publicity Sam is that on a few shows and it's very obvious you don't want to answer the only question anybody wants especially from a health perspective he doesn't want to discuss what the Cup to turn their back on which drives me completely crazy and I'm watching Twitter last night and I mean part of my close friends teddy is revealing and I've talked to about it David was a jerk the media times and I know Sally had some audience with them and our friends went great she was asking if he wasn't a great guy I hate that the organization has turned its back completely on him given all the other people that we know or suspect we're doing something so that leads me to another question which teammates were upset with him who's leading that charge we won't let Sami back to Wrigley we're telling the record won't let them back to Wrigley until he apologized because he was such a jerk what teammates are out there well what has come around and said look we had our differences at times but he said it's beyond time to bring him back Kerry's done that so I know in the organization well I can tell you that it's Richter okay that I don't know I can tell you without a doubt that I asked Joe Girardi who full disclosure is one of my closer friends in my life and your clothes.

"We detailed some of your conversation with Tom Ricketts What else did you learn? Well I actually. Leave him what he says. They don't have a lot of cash on. I believe him when he says that. At least about the Chicago cubs, the one thing he can push back on Scott Boras leaked email from a week ago is look I renovated. Wrigley field not just my sky box. It's a great experience for the whole place, and I have a top pie payroll. Now that's A. A good argument for Tom Ricketts to make right now a decade ago when he was rebuilding, and he didn't have a top roll different story, so he has a leg to stand on, and and so I think that's part of the reason why he he went public to push back on on Scott. Boris claims look. You can say whatever you want, but I'm putting back into my team. We are we have seen many other businesses as a cash problem. The airline business right. And and some of them have asked for bail outs, and some get it and some some don't of course. Baseball would never would never get it, so it's that it's that disconnect buster between franchise value and cash on hand at the end of the day. The players whether they believe the owners are not don't care look, you may not have cash. That's your problem. You didn't save for a rainy day. That's your problem so I believe it when he says he doesn't have it, but I'm not sure that means the players should bail the owners out. Out they've gotTA. figure out a way to pay you know pay for their costs and pay the salaries and you do that by loans and selling equity and all different ways, but you don't do it by asking us to take a cut meeting. The players I ask people a management side all the time as we talk about the the cash flow issue in teams that might be more stressed at the moment than others, and you hear the some of the teams that you would absolutely expect for example, the Miami Marlins who rely on revenue sharing. To any revenue sharing this year. Like? They're in a difficult spot. folks with other teams are wondering about the Cleveland Indians. Small market team, and the cubs are always brought up as You know the perception in the sport that they are especially in trouble. How cute was your sense? A word what their situation is given all the improvements around the ballpark investments around the ballpark that they've made in recent years now I it's it's very cute. Part of it is the fact they have no local TV money. Necessarily I mean they're just starting. Starting their own network, right, they don't have a deal with the largest cable provider comcast. They haven't played a game yet. On that network the. They're not gonNA. Realize those revenues probably for a year or two. There's little lapse time on that so think about the Yankees and the dodgers and other big market teams. How much money they're making off a local TV, cubs are just starting up that revenue train, so everything is seventy percent. They say look. The Atlanta braves are at sixty three percent, and that's public. Public, we know that talking about game day revenue the cubs, either at seventy percents. That's not too far off of a of another team that we know we can look at, and that is the braves, because they're publicly traded liberty media, so yeah, it's a cute for that reason. They don't have that local money. They just finished a major renovation and Yeah look you bought the park. You renovated the park. You bought the bars around it, so it's on you to figure it out. That's the argument against, but definitely it's a cute. There's no doubt about it. What's your sense? It's it's funny when when owners come out, and they talk about their cash flow problem I know, and you know there are a lot of fans rolling their eyes and say yeah, whatever what? How is it? GonNa Affect the team going forward I. Don't know if you've got a sense of that. Because they obviously have these enormous decisions looming Kris Bryant potentially free agent after two thousand and twenty, one hobby or Baya's Anthony Rizzo with an option for next year. They have to fill in the gaps in their starting pitching What's your sense of what the current situation? How that's GONNA affect the decisions they're going to be making. And don't forget you up. Steam contracts all right. A couple of years as well coincides with all those guys, and he's making good bucket. Also It's going to affect I mean. He is taking a bath this year. That's the point he was trying to make me look. The the choices are we lose biblical money at the mention, my article and that's the that's the phrase. Everybody Chicago's jumping on. That were biblical It's such an aggressive word. Right where they who's biblical money, or they lose just a lot of money right Says it's going to. It's going to be one hundred fifty million. Give or take. A little bit I, it's going to the future I. Mean you mentioned Hobby by while I? I I was at spring training with buyers the day that they the announced. What's the game? The game he was on the cover of okay I went to the opening show played the night. Yeah I played the game against him, and they were days away from potentially signing a deal, there were days away from signing a long term deal. Now they had to drop the negotiations and pick it up again on the other side of this. What's that going to look like? So? It is not a remmel possibility. There's a there's a rebuild another rebuild in the future for the Chicago cubs, but like as you know buster. It's not that easy to dump. It's not going to be that easy to dump contracts right now. I mean I who's GonNa take on these contracts. These other teams are are hurting now. Few teams will be okay, but it's not like they're just going to have buyers all over the place, so it's going to be interesting how this all plays out one more thing in talking to time and other people around the league executives. They are really worried about. About Twenty twenty, one and some people are pushing I'm talking about revenues and how the game's going to be. Some people are pushing to negotiate a deal a two year deal this year next year leading into the new CBA, let's combine this thing, but the majority of people involved in this are like we can't figure out twenty twenty. How are we gonNA figure out this year and next year, so there's really an eighteen month problems here for baseball looming. Now. Tom Ricketts wasn't the only one on management side. He spoke out.

"Good, making the right up to Grand Rapids kid, see cousin bulb onerous dairy money in the Bank. Yeah race. Tonight twenty thousand dollars goes to the winner. Tell cousin Bobo good law. And I'll send the kindest regards from the city of Chicago fill in the greater metropolitan area would be racing tonight in Iran Rapids. Robin is racing that Monte pool is a reporter for 'em BBC sports bay area. Monty Monty warriors insider. He tweeted this about thirty minutes ago, though the warriors are saying, Kevin Durant is a game time decision for game five Monday night, he's expected to be a full go, according to multiple league sources anybody else picked up on that reporting anything similar is he kind of the only one right? The only one at the moment, okay? It's okay to be the only one at the moment, I'm things because last week, somebody was the only one on something, and he added down, Pat. Is that right? Who is the only guy that had the kimbrel move? Oh cameras. The only guy nobody else can do anything on added. He stuck with it. He got run on that in a moment, might be go tonight line change. It. I'll go ahead. No. I was gonna save Durant comes out, and they win the next three silly to be right. He could win the MVP, right? If he has three games, I suppose. Commentator question the line has yet to change it still plus one and a half hours. Okay. Because you wonder like if more and more people pick up on that is that going to change things. So anyway, changes that line is a bunch of. The drug dealers coming in with the big two million dollar wagers coming in on that going, plus the one and a half. Then all of a sudden, that things are gonna change. Yeah. Special. What? About to be illegal in this state. But it's only the drug dealers coming in with the big money. That's what I'm saying is they have the liquid cash to make that kind of move, right? You've got to look at areas in businesses where there's a lot of cash on hand and the drug dealing business does provide that opportunity as we get closer if word comes out that he is ago. I mean that lines gonna move a little I know when they announced before game three that clay was going to miss in that short time, the line moved, and that that's Klay Thompson, who's terrific. Don't get me wrong. But that line moved in and the raptors of course won that game. Anyway, they were getting a few points that night but I would think that there's gonna be a shift if we find out definitively that Kevin Durant is going to play. But for what it's worth Monte pool of NBC sports bay area who covers the warriors. He's saying from his leak sources that it is expected that Kevin Durant will be full go in game. Five tonight, eight o'clock is the tip. You'll catch the game right here on ESPN one thousand we'll talk to Nick. Dolon about thirty minutes now, you also mentioned Craig kimbrel when last I was with you on Wednesday. That story was just sort of starting to develop when signing happened was Thursday, Friday, I can't remember now maybe Thursday, whenever it was. The comes got their man. They got Craig kimbrel. What's the time line boys that I realize it was after the drafts of the draft was what onto staying Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday right after the draft Wednesday. So it looked like it was Wednesday. We win Friday was the press conference. And then the time line is he's going to do. Triple eight four. How long, what's the Senate AAA looking at about thirty days? Thirty days, I think it was thirty days, some have speculated could be as, as less as twenty one. I got to get him out to Arizona, get up to speed there. Right. Then he's gonna go triple A. And then he'll be with the big league club in all told them might be somewhere around thirty page rest pitch. Rest pitch pitch feels. Yeah. Until then, they'll still have to play rotating closer because they try to get Carl Edwards junior to get it done last night. And then they had to go to patriot Strobe anyway. So they still have some issues at the back end there. Jed Hoyer was on with cap and a Pat Boyle earlier today. And if you'd like to hear the entire interview, check out the podcast page at ESPN Chicago dot com. But here's jed Hoyer when he was asked if zobrist was still with the cubs would kimbrel not be a Cup. A lot of things change over the course of the first couple of months. And, you know, I think that ownership in the business I give. Sense of attendance. And, you know, people in the ballpark and, and, and just get a sense of what the Reverend are going to be making projections in the winter. But, you know, when you get point of the season, those projections of really a reality, they have a pretty good sense of where we're going to be, so there's a lot of things have changed from where we were this winter two now so that narrative that entirely based on fan. I, I don't think it's fair to connect those things ultimately, I really comes down to ownership, you know, saying that, you know, let let's do this, the right move and, and blessing. That's really what it comes down to, you know, if kimbrel zobrist were together right now on the team and Kimball was active. It would probably push you guys into that second threshold of the luxury tax. The fact that it's not was that part of the process as far as staying away from the that, that second threshold level in the luxury tax that play a role in what you were able to do. And when you. You were able to do it everything in the factor, we're always, really wary of talking about payroll details. It doesn't really help our help us competitively. But obviously you I think we're aware of, of where we are at all times. And, you know, we want, you know, we, we want to be careful the owners owners money as possible. So. Yeah, those are things were aware of, but as far as well. We will won't do, I think we're always of wary of giving away too much detail. It's a little bit of jet Hoyer. And he mentioned there that things change. It's not just as cut and dry. Zobrist is gone, and you might not come back. They get relief there. And they'll take his money and pay kimbrel, even mentioned a tendency said sometimes things happen in a season. All of a sudden owner realizes, there are revenue streams in there is more money. And like I said, Wednesday if they had even zobrist were still on the team had. They gone to Tom Ricketts once the draft is over once no more competition was tied into him and made their pitch. And he was unwilling to give them money to me that would be a little bit surprising immediate did requires overs to be gone to allow Tom Ricketts, assign often as I don't really know. But it'd be surprising to me all the faith he's put in THEO and Jen what they've helped Tom Ricketts achieve one of his stated goals of winning a World Series. It's happened. They've been one of baseball's most competitive teams and they're still in a championship window had Tom Ricketts a couple of months in said, no, I told you guys Rhonda money. That's. Ridiculous. And I know what it's like to talk about an owner that doesn't want to spend it can be extremely frustrating as a fan and companies would have had every right to be upset. If they continued to tell the jet. Nope. We just simply don't have the money for it. When you're in a window like this, you better find the money in the cubs have plenty of money, and they make plenty of money. And they've generated puns of new revenue streams, the number this year is two hundred six million before you go into your luxury tax. You'd have to find out where the cubs to that number. And I don't think the cubs I've ever been in luxury tax have they, they were I think a couple years ago weren't they I mean, they reset they're not. You wouldn't even be worried about a repeater panel banished Dan. Yeah. They reset, they were under they're no longer under that jurisdiction whatsoever. Right. The point is, is it or is it not that rickets gives them the budget? And that's the way it's going to be now especially after they won the World Series. They've got that one under the belt. It's helped kick everything off, that they've got going on over there. Right. Everybody's happy. Nobody cares about signing. Nobody cares about this. They muscled every one of the, the, the owners that own those things they muscled them out. And got everything they wanted. You know, they're, they're, they're talking to the city all the time trying to get whatever nuances they want. Some ordinances changed here there. They got everything. They wanted predicated on a twenty sixteen victory in the World Series came. They have what they want for one reason or another. They do not go over that budget. And there's a lot of debt service that still there. And even though you're values three hundred whatever it's supposed to be three billion three billion dollars, whatever it is. And you bought the team for nine hundred million round numbers, karma. I don't want to be exact right, so yes, your value has shot up over two hundred and twenty-five percent triple. Yes. Well, twenty five yeah, yeah, so good for you. Good for the cops, but until you sell a portion of that team that's not actual cash. That's not liquid capital coming into your pocket right now. You can borrow more money, and how much you borrowed against how much valued is a whole lot less now. And you feel a whole lot better. You know you buy the team for nine hundred year your financing. Seven hundred million of that, while, you're not quite as you're not feeling frisky. But you borrowed seven hundred now you're worth three point one billion or three billion now. You're feeling a little bit, okay? Now I can DP breathe easy now, you know, nice and deep. So, you know, I don't know why the cubs to want to spend more than they should I'd like to see the cubs. Go ahead make themselves the dedom- innate team in the National League for one reason or another. That's not the way they're doing business. And we've also seen teams that don't spend a lot of money. Also be competitive get into the playoffs and make things happen. So for them. It's let's take a look where we're going to be now after planning for the future. Why would you wanna be over this year? If you might have to be over next year or next year or be over in twenty twenty one some big salaries as it is next year. You're one problem kimbrel ideally, fixes, your one sort of major weakness probably your biggest weakness. You're trying to get back and winning nother one of these things. And it just it would be. Surprising if he continued to say to them. No, I gave you the budget. And that's it in jet really didn't wanna go there. He talked about the other circumstances that sometimes come into play and he didn't say today. Oh, yeah, that's why it's because Zober has gone. But who knows this was January? When asked are they preparing for zobrist to not return this season? I wouldn't say that we're in. We're in constant communication with him. And really just trying to be respectful, as we can to situation. But you I'm certainly hopeful that we've not seen the last avenge over in a uniform. You were we're hopeful that he has able to come back. So yeah, I'm not going to go into great detail. But that's certainly the hope of the clubhouse in the front office and all the coaches and there's no question when he does come back we'll get himself in great shape. He'll be ready to play and will be the professional that he is. So that's certainly I hope that, that he's in a couple of youthfulness some point, there's generally, if you want the whole interview, ESPN Chicago dot com. Check out the podcast page. What was the reaction like Thursday and Friday to the Kimbrell stuff? Yeah. People were overjoyed that they went. And they went with made the move then debate was would they have done it without Zober as being out? And that was debate does happening up and down. But they're, they're happy. So they wanna know how long a long are gonna take him to get into that. Right. Gotta remember these fiber types, to, they don't overreact. They don't go crazy. They don't do this emotional with too much emotions in it. They understand what the numbers are then seeing how to crunch the numbers if you had a baseball guy in there. And a baseball guys, making emotional decisions you know what I need this guy got to have this guy. Doesn't matter. These these guys know. Okay, this is where we're at. How can we get what can we work? Is there another angle, we can get at without going over while we don't need to do, what's the way, we could finagle this and still make it look like we're not spending, you know, inordinate amount of money or over whatever we have the spent Anthea might be mad at you Yale, I think for THEO not Harvey.

Started one in six people were going crazy. Absolutely nuts. They were blaming everybody. You got to get rid of this guy. You gotta get rid of him. Joe, man. Oh, you can lose them. Now, the pitching staff to old remember Prokhoda projections. They kept going down eighty to eighty one way to win seventy nine wins pagoda probably saying. Yep. That was us as the cubs went off to a one in six star. Now the cubs did get a win yesterday. They are to an six, but the blame goes everywhere. And that's what the oh has to say. But when it comes to allocating where the resources go feel put it right out himself. Tom Ricketts is not the problem. It's not a resource issue. He's another. Taking a lot of heat. It's it's not not the is not a resource problem with people have a problem with the allocation of resources than that's me, and it has been ever since I got here. So a lot of good and some bad, and it's. It's it's a team wide issue. And we know we have to the sorta like search for magic bullets. I don't think that's that's really productive understand it. But. No. All my responsibility. We play on the field. The talent that we have. The direction we're headed. So. And yet, I'm not in alone. Think really talented people have great players every trust.

"Your clock is running towards free agency teams aren't going to be worried about you developing in the minor leagues. They're gonna watch you. If you're a productive player, they're going to want you up on the major league roster as soon as possible at that point. Yeah. There's no doubt about it. They're not gonna make you wait your five or six years in the minor leagues. Let's grab another call before we hear more from Tom Ricketts and get to don't forget, Robert Flora's network. Joining us top of the park ridge. And Joe Joe, you're on ESPN one thousand what's happening. Good evening, John. This is really for a for a White Sox fan. And I'm sure you'd like to say Machado playing on the south side this year. Am I wrong? Yeah. It'd be great to see him playing. So now, wouldn't you say they, you know, whatever the money he wants they say, it is ten years three hundred million dollars couldn't they just give them that and just front loaded. I mean, pay forty million a year for the first five or six years, and then you know, him a lot less for you know, four or five years that way at least she's getting paid what he's worth I understand what you're saying. You're not overpaying and right now they're payroll so low, right. What's the difference? I mean, you know, and that's an extra ten million. Now, there's nothing because they're they're not not spend any money anyway. Yeah. Yeah. Joe you might as well spend it if if it's possible, I mean, you'd think that Machado's Asian will be fine with it. I mean, it's still getting the ten year three hundred. Millions. So he's getting the big. You know, the big number out there. Yeah. You can be as creative as you want Joey appreciate it. We'll talk about it. You could do that. I mean, you could say here you're going to get you're going to get your ten years three hundred million. But are you get forty each of the first three years? What you're you know. And now we're going to slowly, but surely reduce the amount of money, you're gonna make soul that when you're thirty four thirty five thirty three thirty four thirty five. We still have money to go out and get other people to help us. If in fact, you're not going to help. But the thing is I doubt players would go for that. Well, and the other thing is they they would want it out after they made the big Zack. Look Machado Harper. They're both going to receive opt-outs probably after multiple years now when the first one kicks in and knock I was going to be up for the fourth year after the fifth year. It's probably going to be they're going to have a player opt out, my guess would be after the fourth fifth sixth and seventh year. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they both receive opt-outs after after that length of time the question would be would it seemed like the White Sox want to give those opt-outs if they have heavily front loaded contracts and a likelihood right not necessarily because you know, why? If that were the case, they probably just say, then let's do a five year deal and. Right. What will it? There's no point in being front-loaded because we know you're going to opt out anyway. So it's completely understandable. As we talk about this, Freddie. We've got some interesting news of note from Ken Rosenthal, as he tweets out white sacs remained strong factor along with Padres in Machado, sweepstakes, sources tell the athletic, but shadow is said to be first choice of both front offices and preference of Phillies front office as well, though, ownerships in San Diego, and Philly might not see it as convincingly. That's fine. The White Sox take him. As I said earlier today, and I agreed with cap I thought myself agreeing with cap, and I had to tweet it out immediately. Because that doesn't happen very often. But he said he would not go beyond the eight years to fifty and I'm about the same place. I'm not going up above that. If all of a sudden Scott Boras comes and says, the Dan Lozano right Lozano comes and said, listen, we got a better offer US sweetener dealers said listen, we offered you. We got an offer of eight years two hundred and fifty and again, those we don't know if that's the numbers are not. But those are the the closest numbers anybody's out there. If actually listen I get offered you eight eight years to fifty that's where we are. We're not going any higher. I've got to move from that that number now. Now as as a SOX fan, though in you know, what I ever thought to respond to that. I'll do that on the other side of this break because I don't want to be. I don't want to cut it short.

"He's way better than the three that I mentioned, and I actually was wondering whether or not their decision to go out on their own and create their own television network of their own broadcast network, whether or not that was going to restrict their budget or give them issues with what they could spend I've been texting back and forth with somebody that would know. And I'm told that that does not have any material impact at all. It will. It's I thought it would be a larger fixed cost, but I'm told that that really shouldn't have any impact on them kind of long term so going out on their own, and creating hypothetically, the cubs network shouldn't be something that would have a negative impact on what they can afford, salary wise. Yeah. That's the only time when I hear about the renovation budget was too high or well, we gotta pay for this let you get more prophets too. When you're not sharing with you know, the city in the state. I mean, that's I just I don't think he ever cried poor because they are third payroll wise, but what I would want to know is did THEO in. I think a year ago, even though we're signing you Darvish we're still in for Harper. Or did they know at that time? Look, yes, you Darvish is a decent deal. Now considering where he thought he would be so we're going to jump at him. But we know then why would that time that we're not going to be in it for? Why would you spend your money on? Why would you take the chance of spending your money on Darvish knowing that? If you did that that you'd already been told that the likelihood of being able to pursue Harper would be out of the picture if you knew that ahead of time. Well because you lost Jake Arrieta. They needed pitching, correct? But as you just mentioned, if you have the capacity sign Harper, you're talking about as you mentioned a once in a generation type of player right now, you can mix and match you can do some other things, and I'm not minimizing the importance of starting pitching after losing Arrietta. But if you had to choose spending your money on Darvish or being allowed to spend your money either or on Harper. What would you choose? Now. It's probably an easy decision now because Darvish didn't give you anything in year one. And now, you don't have the capacity to go out and sign Harper. But if you had to choose either, or I don't know what you think. But I I would I wouldn't have thought that. They they knew signing chat would and Darvish would restrict their ability to pursue Harper in two thousand nineteen. Do you really think they would have gone ahead? And did what they did. Well, they're thinking was they were losing Arrietta of a Cy Young winner. They were losing John lackey a number five starter. So they went out, and they thought, hey, here's chat would who's gonna be way better than lackey at the back of the rotation. And here's Darvish who's maybe a little younger than Jake. And maybe we'll be better. And maybe we don't need Harper because we've got a half and others. And they're all right. But do you think it was never an either or situation? Again, we don't know the numbers the only number. We have is three hundred million that the nets put them in table for Harper. That's the only number we've seen publicly you Darvish got one hundred twenty six which was a lot less than probably people thought was gonna take. Yeah. I think everybody was kind of surprised when that was the final number that came down last year. In their head were they were they Banting in about and saying look or was Tom Ricketts saying three hundred million for Harper. That's or more. That's just not going to happen. And so if you wanna go make a big splash one hundred and twenty six we can do, but we're not about to go one hundred seventy four more next offseason. Specially when there's not a ton coming off the books. Right. I'm gonna get. Why is we said you're gonna get zobrist money off the books next year what? But that sound substantial it's thirteen fourteen million a year. Right. What else? He's coming off the books. We mentioned something else too. Is coming off. There's a well maybe mad and salary hamels. Cole hamels deal so twenty plus zobrist fifteen or sixteen whatever it is. That's thirty six million. Yeah. I again, maybe maybe Jetton THEO work nearly as high on the the the thought of signing Harper to this monster free agent, you believe that I would not to do you believe that I don't know. All I can do is look at the actions that they've shown you, and it just you're right because he's twenty six and everything we know about him. It doesn't seem and it seems like he would be more than happy to play in Chicago. At least it'd be one of the destinations. He would choose if they were in the in the mix, right? So so all I can work off of his the actions, they're showing us, and they're being about his explicit you without saying. I mean, they are few and jet having said it, but Tom said it and Joel Madden said it impossible. Yeah. I mean, look as well. If you were if you were jetting, THEO, and and Tom Ricketts came to you and said, look I allowed you to purchase or to spend money on Jason Heyward. Word. I allowed you to spend the money last year on Darvish wide open up the checkbook, and we really didn't get a huge return on our investment. We didn't really get a motorist were rainy merkin theory. Wasn't it Merck who brought it up in the meeting would they have been able to spend all that money. And if they all turned if they were all good return on investments, I then they be allowed to spend on Harper this year. Or is it the fact that they were bad and they're saying, no more. I said upstairs I thought that had they gotten better return on their investment. I would think that they would have more payroll flexibility. But I say that with absolutely that's just speculation. Is there one more factor too? Is there are they looking ahead to Chris Brian wanting a potential three hundred million dollar deal. I'm not saying he necessarily will be worth it. But that's going to be a lot. Yeah. Rizzo's not happy with his deal. Resolves costs control luck. Hobby bias, what are you going to do with his deal? There are a lot of young players. That you will have to make tough decisions about named not been able to get any of them on these sweetheart deals that like Chris sale was able to get on a few years ago Rizzo and Castro were able to get on. No one's biting because they know even though free agencies come down a little bit. It will still pay off for them. So. It's gonna be interesting, and I want one more thing we have the'll on tomorrow. At this time. I'd like to play for him one thing. I wanna know I wanna play him his sound bite from the day after two days after whatever it was they were eliminated. And when he said, the offense is broke. And when he said that then did he envision not making any changes to the offense? The only thing they've changed as the hitting coach they have made no significant. So you you hear you have an offense. And we say, hey, it's the players like players like players laying. Well, you have a broke offense. And now you just expected to fix itself because you have a new hitting coach or you're going to have a healthy Kris Bryant or could traverse is going to have a better year was an anomaly, I don't judge said today jet set up with cap today that he thought last year in the second half was an outlier that they've come to that conclusion are they spending that because they can't correct it with getting Bryce Harper with that to me is the sales pitch to cubs fan. Is we didn't need to spend a ton of money this year because if Chris Brian is healthy for a full season. Could turn us is more. Like he was in two thousand seventeen than he was eighteen Moro's healthy and Darvish is healthy. We basically just got four new different players. Yes. Coming up next. We'll we'll shift to football as well. We've got a game coming up in a little bit. But I there was one member of the bears who was rewarded today. And one member of the bears who was robbed. We'll tell you about that coming up next. It's Waddle and Silvy after an hour and twenty minutes of commercial free fine on ESPN one thousand cubs owner, Tom.

"Mike Montgomery sort of like a swing guy that we see which Gaga with the cubs right now. So the idea that all of these guys are going to pan out. It's just not true. But if the White Sox can get two to three starting pitchers from their cash of prospects at this point and really turn that into rotation. Then I think they're going to be fantastic position going forward. Jimenez is going to be an absolute star. And if you compare him in the outfield with Bryce Harper you can put him in a lineup with Manny Machado. The American League central is not the best division in baseball right now. It is almost certainly the worst. The Tigers rebuilding the royals rebuilding. The Indians not seeming to want to spend much money to bolster their team. There's not a whole lot going on right now. The Minnesota Twins are just sort of lingering in that eighty to eighty five win territory there's opportunity to strike here for the White Sox. And I think they recognize that talking to Jeff passan it's Waddle and Silvy on ESPN one thousand let me ask you the million dollar question. Cubs fans wanna know do Jenin feel want Bryce Harper. But Tom Ricketts won't give them the money to get them. Or do. They strategically believed that the best way to go for baseball ops is to not spend on Bryce Harper. Well, I think any general manager out there would say in a vacuum. Of course, you want Bryce Harper in your lineup as you should this is a guy who in two thousand fifteen had an eleven hundred PS in sixteen seventeen eighteen was inconsistent. But if I can have a guy who's inconsistent and putting up a nine hundred opiates for me, I will take back inconsistency eight days a week at the same time from every sense that I've gotten talking with people inside the cubs organization and people who have taught with the cubs. The fact that they don't have any money to spend right now Israel now would it surprise me? If in the end, they.
