It's the way it was the one day because like you know so it's wednesday. You know where this is. Our one of our only two weeks really awesome work july fourth other one so i was like okay wednesday going to sleep in a little bit half still do some work. Obviously but Woke up at like noon. Twelve thirty and got cut the fucking ken. Rosenthal tweet sent to me. That town mckinley signed with the dodgers. And i know we're all on pins and needles here about digital mayhew. But that's just a fucking i mean. Sure he's gonna miss the whole year anyways but it's just a gut punch to see tommy canley signs and it's not the yankees and that guy going to grow. His beard out is mullet. He's going crazy his hair and it's going to be for the l. A. dodgers not the yankees and that just fucking broke my heart this morning. Yeah sucks. I mean you sent the a tax than our short group chat saying i want a di- you jay news. I thought it was gonna be something much worse than that. I mean good socks tommy. John was a fun part of the team but to me like real heartbreak without got tommy. John's out this year anyway. So yes sucks. That in twenty twenty two will be on. A different team won't be a part of this year. But i don't know i i feel like the tough news with him. Sort of has already happened this. This was maybe a little bit more of kicking the nuts. But i kind of wasn't expecting anyone that is true. Two thousand twenty two problems as worry about that yet. Look at you with a real mike. What the fuck is that like. That sounds nice Holy molar your podcast. And now jesus yeah. You're you're on other story to me. It's very nice and doesn't give me any promised me a new laptop of the year. Guess what the end of the year fucking scumbag replace right now. Basically like that's how bad it is. That's always be charged. But the to no surprise. Tommy's not gonna feel like that heartbroken mckinley leaving you know he's going to downplay and all that i don't know maybe i was just a really really big family guy from the start and then finally get him on. The podcast was so dope. And yeah i mean like i don't know it just sticks like britain's tweet zach. Britton was like really sad like that relationship has gone now. Tommy canley. that's hurts. Ma'am hurts a little bit more than it. Should it hurts. I think the overall like culture of the yankees and stuff but understand we gotta save. I wanna die tweets for if the gentlemen that i'm just dishes known positive news everything's bad. There's no positive news. Say i'm getting sick of the new york yankees. I am getting real sick. We're sitting around the entire time. And i see nothing being done. Yeah and like so. We avoided complete disaster. Because if i woke up to tommy canley signs for the red sox. Today i would have. We would do pockets. 'cause that'd be dead. Apparently they were the runner up here and had a competitive offer that would have been. I know i could not just that would have been impossible. Perfect oh four sock to personality definitely definitely gets him and millar would have been like the palace no doubt his his contract. That's like five or fifty five hundred fifty thousand dollars. Bonus seven fifteen. Two thousand twenty one three point five in two thousand twenty two which is expected to come back with more bonuses. Whatever matches nothing to five million dollars like you can't just fuck that man if they don't do if he god help he's if they don't bring back digital may who like this would be the worst season ever be unbelievable. I don't know what their plan is. I truly just don't know what the yankees plan is right now. It's not. I don't think it's going to end up. Well i have no. I have no reason to believe they're going to figure this out the right way. Yeah i have no hope anchor becoming franchise that up losing all their like like you lost Dd last year. You'll lose keenly role mine role mine. Yeah i feel like i mean. Cc retired obviously. But i just feel like they've lost so many of those character guides gardner again. He's a high he's a high clubhouse guy but so much what made the yankees fund. The past few years. I feel like is is going away so i better start fucking winning. Because we're going to be a nap on team. That doesn't win i think. Those boring stiffs on the planet. If they're gonna win they're gonna win a world series and i don't care but it's like being like the next move honestly like if we're just going down this path of misery where like the endpoint is dj signing with somebody else. The next point is like trading void. Like how much you wanna break my soul. I'm really wanna like. How defeated do you want me to look look void. Being traded would be the next step if we're just going down that path if he's don't resigned dj. I really think fans. We all need to look at ourselves in the mirror and consider making a statement to this franchise we need. I know. i don't know how. What does tommy smokes. Do to make this statement not buy tickets next year. I mean i know there might not be fans but whenever whenever there are fans again. We don't buy tickets. We don't buy any merchandise. we like. they don't signed it. There is no excuse for not signing. Dj if they don't sign dj were were like swapping with the white sox like white softer trying to make big moves. They were the joke franchise. And now it's like the the fucking yankees are doing. Nothing i just. Don't get how nothing's been done. He was on our team. He wants to be there fucking figure it out. Well the good news is they just want to all series and eleven and the report now a deejays. It's five for one twenty five and he's not budge. That's a little different from five for one hundred and the yankees were like four for seventy five. It's no he was five for one twenty five. That's a big difference to me. The big ask but meet in the middle. She'll do it in a heartbeat. But i'm just saying like how far off they are people like. Oh it's just a little bit of money. He's like that's a lot of money. I don't know that's a lot of money. They're often A name that's come up. Which i have been interested in for a while and seems like this team is really just getting ready to everyone louise kathy on the reds is named popped up on the yankees have interest. Whatever and the you know the report would take ton. Now that's a guy you can slide in as the number two and you feel really good you know everything else. You'll cole could steal and everything else. After that falls in the place that would be a guy. Now it costs a ton. Maybe it would cost medina medina by the way down in dominican as twenty five strikeouts in eleven innings easel fucking electric factory. That guy gets up easily. Just re shoring up the ranks. That guy needs to be here quickly But yeah i would. I would love lewis kathy. I don't know what exactly would cost. You know it's not causing jason to stop throwing around. They're not trading jason for anything but we still be my opinion. You're the number louise. Pistachio superfan always had made that. No right like. I think a half way i would be down to him. He's the best changeups in baseball from the starting pitcher. It just falls off the table. And he's young. He's under control. I'm all about him but it would cost a ton. Think the red just don't wanna win They made the playoffs. Now again. we enough of this. Let's just blow it up. So i love to take their straps literally any pitcher right now. You even said it right there like oh we got coal casteel and then like whatever else we have nothing else right now. It's just coal and whatever else. The rotation is really scary. It's really really bad way. It really bad way. We years in our our. We're going to go through this. Thank you just got to add a couple arms. Like i thought after adding you're We got our horse now. It's like the it's like the opposite of how was like for so many years with danke had like the middle on the back end. They just didn't have that east now. They have the ace and they have nothing else. Thank god them. Imagine they just didn't get cold. Yeah like what we. We'll be doing here. We have a little bit more to talk about here. Knocking me longest show in the world but we are the doctor talk about. Those are good and one other thing. Quick before against that though. We'll talk to is about hooters. Hooters just physio they. They were all around with the the barstools could with where the place was in america the philly sports because we were there all throughout the playoffs You know that will be cooking back up. Probably when we get back on the swing of things once break is over but you know who has been there For barstool pretty much. All twenty and hooters calendar is now out for twenty twenty one. You can buy the counter local hooters. One dollar donation from every purchase goes towards. Give a hoot and you also get your countersigned. Signed by the hooters girls themselves. Just go to hooters dot com slash tour to find out where they will be. And when marty like to. You just have all the hooters girls numbers and your phone at this point like he didn't eat in was the The cover this year. She won unbelievable honest. We can get those hooters calendars for good christmas gift to if you want. Did you have any say in who won no. I was on the committee. I actually in. If corona didn't happen. I was going to go down and judge a contest. Wow have been. That's a that's every man's dream. I don't think it gets better known. Fucking corona guy so go to hooters dot com order all your favorites from their menu. You can also ordering the hooters app as well use code stool for ten dollars off any over thirty dollars. Odds are you're making order from hooters trying to get some wings of your your drinking similar lights on the side as well orders me over thirty dollars you might be might as well use this coach. Stool ten dollars off only thirty. It's interesting no greater and go check the calendar as well one dollars nation. Every purchase goes towards give who Check out hooters. There personal fund. I don't think we talked about this in the last show. I don't know if it was created a day. After would you say. It wasn't announced okay but boston fund Dave is spearheading this With the marcus lemonis And they are raising a ton of money a ton of money for small businesses All around Not even just new york city but you know. The restaurants bars are really getting destroyed With this new shutdown and places that have been open for twenty thirty years are debating having to close their doors and borstal barstool fund is going to do. Its best to make sure that doesn't happen and these guys stay open The videos are legitimately like tom. You tweeted yesterday with the every single one of these videos. Were dave call. Somebody and saves the restaurant is the best thing you'll watch all day. Where like even dave like a person who we know leasing abortion not the most emotional person in the world but like you could see it even like he's like touched by it a little bit so parcel fund is fucking awesome to is like i hate talking on the phone but like i love doing these calls. I mean how cannot yet the us i mean there was really no nothing helping small businesses like the government. We what one stimulus package in march. Maybe another at some point but really nothing like you know. They're dying and for a company like barfoed. Use all our resources for this and hopefully be able to save as many of them as possible is. That's what it's all about a love that dave is like so into as well because when dave's into something it's going to go off like he's just calling outwit like a twenty five k boom done. Ripoll white red dana white hundred grand. Yeah and then we got that polka guys given twenty five grand. Now it's it's just a fucking ripple really cool to see. Yeah i would really like for the yankees to get more involved here They had this tweet about So many words. I don't see graphics. Whatever they put out they don't need to. I think it's gonna be ten. Businesses like get five k. each around the bronx whatever. Just nice. I just. You're the yankees. They know. it's so tough to like. Yeah you know. It's tough to do it with charity but if porno giving five hundred fucking thousand dollars. I've always thought it's hard to donation. Shame rate because a lot of times. Jeff bezos will do something and they'll be point zero zero zero one his net worth and shit right but like this is different where the could very clearly given like. Yeah sure they're giving fifty thousand more than a lot of people in other teams but you're gonna go through making a fucking eight tweet. Graphic seemed like and like be like. Oh where you know doing this reopen you gotta do more to you. Have their one one. And a half. Two billion dollar franchise like five five billion. Oh okay five. Billion for period. Like if you're going to like i. George steinbrenner has like a famous quote where he says if you do if you donate or do something nice for someone in more than two people know about it. You did it for the wrong reasons. So the yankees like tweeting about. It is very clear not hauling that. We're going to tweet about it. Just better be more than fifty k. Scarlett be like half a million or like. I'm like did they you out. That was such a move where it was like the yankees franchise who used to do things right all the time. This is like another step idiots. Yeah the ben. Heller had a tweet pitcher for the yankees. While i'm definitely not. It was coinciding. Dave 'cause he was reaching out to kevin kevin hayes. All those guys and heller said well. I'm definitely not rich but my favorite part of new york is all local restaurants and bars. So many do my small part and help. How can new york shows. Lots of love for the yankees. So it's time for us to love them back hash day. Barstool fun hashtag new york. And then he put the link for the barstool fund. Beautiful awesome ship. That heller from a clouds Really like that. He's a big stool. Everything he he's he's tweeted at the before. Yeah like about the strikeout challenge or something. I could see that with. Kevin hayes given twenty five k. And and the yankees are giving. Fifty is not look didn't win. They've won with fifty. What gave you did get fifty right. Wigan whitney whitney the yankees only gave ten times more than gats is like they give it that way and corrobos jerry and fucking jared. It's bad So i really hope they answer the bell. I'll buy part of a break to reach out to some people because we. I wanna get anybody who we've come. We've come cockpits with some nice peop- you know some fairly decent names. I think a lot of people love obviously love new york city and play for the yankees and all that they want to get back to these. Everyone loves the bars and restaurants in new york city. Don't want them going away. They've done so much for us over the years. So i definitely want to do my part and help out as much as i can so hopefully spread the word. You can't listen to this. You know some people you know this is the time to give yourself even like if you got twenty five bucks or whatever to give you know every little dollar calico i. It would be so cool. One day for one of us to come through ten k. Like obviously. I don't think any of us that might edition but if i had a layover break shirts for my whole family goes rallies they got awesome shirt. Do what you can. Obviously everybody's limits are different But you know anything you can afford to give Doing spread the word. Yeah it's sucks to see like gaz give five can use like i'm a poor. Fuck is i mean. He was a millionaire. No it's great. Yeah go on the bar. So the link for the fund is on the short porch instagram link. You just click that you go right so It's all over twitter twitter. Find the link. Google barstool fond dance. yeah And then if you go to the store we have certain shirts review by pretty all the net proceeds go right to the barstool fund Then you know and there's a fire merch out. There loved an office. things eliminate. it's all good So go check that out. And let's pressure the yankees to fucking get more involved here. Because i think they they should they really should and oh and lastly The documentary came out I thought it was really good. I'm some. I'm critical of these documentaries. Like remember sosa mcgwire one. That came out with espn. That was horrible. I didn't learn a single thing with this documentary. I learned a lot. Like i was always tense. The last half hour of that when they talk about their i wrote down a ton of notes But my biggest takeaway Was finding out the real story of when he stepped away from the yankees the end of the twentieth. Fifteen season right before the playoffs. Because i remember my gut reaction. And i was like fuck guy this is. How can you just leave this team or this is me. I've been. I'm in college so obviously an idiot but i'm just like you know they're play the astros. Whatever in the wild card. And i'm like how is he not here. What's going on like this is bullshit the real story and it's like the motherfucker was too drunk to throw a bullpen in baltimore. So then he came. He went to cashman. Said like i gotta take care of myself like okay do your thing. And then he took a ride back to the city from baltimore and before he got in the this is to go to rehab. He stopped the liquor store and grabbed two bottles of hennessy and finish them on the car. Ride home to new york. That's like this guy had a gigantic drinking problem. A titanic. tricky problem fucking credit for getting around it but that was. I didn't know idea it was that bad. Yeah though that was the most interesting. Yeah i kind of remember the same thing twenty over the news came out almost like whatever suck this year anyway. Right right every sucked anyway alabama. Could it be like you know like he's appropriate. Or how bad could it be because as they showed in the in the documentary like he pretty much had to drink problems throughout even you know oh nine through twenty one and twenty games a year. It was the same one of my takeaways. Was like good on him for detoxing the day before a game in the date like i wanna go three straight days been drinking than to be like all right all together now like glad. He was able to do that for four years. But yeah i mean you think about it and those three years were really bad from thirteen. Fourteen fifteen injuries but yeah it was probably mixed and getting older but also like he was a raging alcoholic. That was drinking three days a week. I'm sure it probably all caught up to him was really interesting. Look like behind the curtain with a lot of stuff. You didn't know you. And i when i saw that it was like i lewis said myself. Shit 'cause i remember tweeting the going absolutely nuts. Being like my good i mean. He just backed out because he sucked. That's the only reason why he's doing. He's not an alcoholic. There's no way the day before a playoff game is like. Oh i just found out on alcohol. You could have done it. A one-two right right now. That was actually what a convenient time like. No one just finds out the day before but then see like how crazy it actually was was not cool but it was like at least like it's cool to see someone actually open up about that and like talk about their problems. I actual reaction was. Couldn't you just fucking rehab in a month. That was that was my that was my idiotic ticket. That's what that's exactly. I was trying to figure it out was going back into my brain and it was like come on man fucking one month and then go to rehab and that's idiot me but it's good for doing it when you did because who knows what would have turned into and you tell me you mentioned it. So he his scheduled wrote it. Down was basically. He'd pitching a game. And the moment he gets the clubhouse they had a crown of with the sprite. Crowd is crown. Sprite win firm or something like that. He joked that and then he gets blackout that night he get black the next night black on the night after and then his detox we just shutting down all water basically and like gatorade for two days and then he and he just did that for like a full year two crazy fully. I think it was more than that. There's three years right three years. Yeah it was also. Thinking is a an all time. Butterfly effect thing is because he said so twenty fifteen. They clinched the playoffs. And then that night. He didn't drink at all while they were celebrating. And then when they were on the bus to baltimore baltimore someone handed him hennessy to drink official like think about if he never gets handed that bottle of hennessy. Like you're like. Wow that god crawley of handed but no we should up. Because if he doesn't start that been drinking that week. Any probably never comes to that moment of clarity. Where realizes like he has to get his life together. Yeah and that all spiraled out of the the the fight in the fight in toronto because he had to fight to the club in toronto. I honestly don't remember that too much. I remember it a little bit. And then he stopped drinking completely and then yeah the celebrations. You notice in the video of them celebrating. He's getting champagne poured on them. Who comes up them and says yeah feel so good. Did you notice. It was john ryan murphy. All i remember that. Yeah yeah people get going fucking john my in murphy member that which was jaromir feel like weren't there a bunch of yeah blackout. I wrote down like eat. Quick hitting notes. Do you go throw. Yeah sure one. Quick thing for me is There was a moment where they were playing radio. Callers bashing him and john jastremski people pass your this guy's up so i had his wife almost with an all time old takes exposed like in the very beginning which is like cece kept telling me he was having a heart attack and i was like no. You're not like he has like the pulmonary like a legitimate heart. Problems like that could have been bad. pl- footage of playoffs at the stadium. Made me miss inky stadium. I don't know what it was about like the his last game. Whatever camera fucking whatever thing. They were using the stadium. Look so cool Footage of him as a rookie. You just looks exactly like it. Pitching rotation didn't change at all. He has motion was the same. No matter what the way he steps off the mound and like tugs at a shirt like shrugged his shoulders brewers that was just a reminder of how awesome that was our member Remember not the mets on the playoffs. Wheat and i remember like as in the basement with my dad Watching that last game on my mom. Who's a mets fan. Is upstairs unlike hearing her. Cheer for cement stuff austere for like any positive Up and then the brewers won. And i rode my bike to my friend. James's house chanting mets off. They're out of the playoffs or whatever so thankfully so. We just found out that tommy's hates his mom. Yeah that's other a rivalry of how much you hate the mets as us. Hate your mom. Now i love my mom. I don't like the mets fan side of her and she certainly would rub that in a lot. I think in my childhood my mic. That was art of it like got that we were house. Divide so if the yankees had like a devastating loss. She wouldn't comfort. You know she she she. She was very. she'd be more supportive. Okay news each. It was not a two way street. She was supportive of us. Like google and yankee road trip and like shoot. Wear a metro outright root against the yankees. Like if we went on to see the mets. Like we're absolutely okay. Not to a street. I would have liked more about free agency like the all. They really said yeah. He didn't really want to be yankee at first. And then signs that biggest deal. I would have liked to hear more about that courting process. Yeah i wanna know why. He didn't want to be a yankee like why. Don't you want to come to new york. And then they go to cashman and how about that fucking punched in the face like yeah like day one. We were not letting anyone else signed him. Wish the fucking same same rationale. Currently brian overhead had it last year for cold. I'd like it every year. Cameron may been forgot he existed. Yuck him he was a fun guy last year. Completely awesome about a guy like lou fun and they lost cameron raven old-timer day. They showed that. I feel like i feel like the next old timers day. Probably won't be this year just because that's like a superspreader event and there's literally so many old people it's the whole fucking tireless. Old people could probably the worst idea ever to do. Alzheimer's they right now. And i hope it's like all out like cc's back jeter. I don't think he's ever come back for old timers day right. Marrano came back last year but that was his first. I want to. I want everybody back. I want everybody living up along. Clemens there yeah i want. Everybody like won't go back until now i was going to be such a cock something. I don't think he'll go to baseball. Is the owner of the marlins. Was that fucking matter. Doesn't matter at all he's not like managing the marlins where he can't get a day off always. Tj are you could. I mean you were. You were confident. But i mean rutgers is absolutely routing house yeah. This is fun to watch i. I'm the i'm the only one screaming about russia's no one respects them. I got some clips talking shit about rutgers in the past. I'm ready to break out if it's amazing file. I'm very particular about my ruckers phantom. If you don't support rutgers early get the foot line. Dm's with hubs from the borstal ruckers account from like four years ago where he talked about rutgers one time and i tweeted about it. I'm not a rutgers fan. I'm a circuit. I know i know i forget what i tweeted. From the mersal rutgers account i bet them against illinois that was dope they were they were so easing illinois these dams i mean baker. Still on this fucking team. Gio baker still. They're the tj. Like t. j has like the ruckers terrible basketball team just till recent a who is the guy that used to have. Yeah corey sanders. Where's that guy or is he alive. I believe he's in poland or guy was you just. Don't fuck record sanders. That guy was electric. You guys suck besides him. But september twenty eighteen. I said great gangs coverage big short. Porch guy says yeah. After i had tweeted something mean about you saying something about rutgers on twitter. Oh c. k. C. realized not actually mad just mad at rutgers so i guess they must have lost that day because it was september and then i said keep up the great yankees coverage big short porch guy the respond s i also suggested a void shirt and he said sorry. Only one voice shirt at a time at the moment. Yeah that was back when like we literally like. We couldn't make many shirts. I wanted to leave for thing to do. Track someone publicly and it'd be like all just jokes brother and look where we are now to get hired by hubs exact like as an internship right now. But we're here there were you. Oh tommy to add your list loud funny when getting his yoga iota make just driving. They didn't they didn't like address. What happened from the start. I was like what is happening. I was like what he's just driving is yona what's going on. Oh it's star wars. They make sense. But here's just make done in his house and driving his. Yoda fucking freaked out. If i was just like driving next on the road. I just see yoda giant iota. His son i don't his sons. Just gotta be good baseball right. I was wondering the same thing. I was wondering how good he is he. Look it looks like the angelo russell peck. He's got a little de ngelo russell to him. I don't know why. I just assume that he's good very athletic. What else do we have here. The whole thing is dad was crazy. you know hiv and then the cancer and then you know he is. Basically wife had the tell mike. Yeah like he In riga yeah like. He's he's rehab. he's not yeah so that was crazy. he finds out he made the all his first all star team the same time as he finds as data's weeks to live with just crushing. So yeah he he. Basically the whole documentary was like anything. Good that happens in his life usually followed by something horrible that kind of like narrative continued throughout like pretty much the whole documentary but oh and then the whole thing where he was supposed to take that an abused pill whatever twenty thirteen. It would make him sick when he drank a just fucking spitting it out just like prove more like the alcoholism shit it's deep and it's heavy it's not gonna make you laugh the but you learn a fucking lot and i think those are rare with documentaries these days and you appreciate c. Forty was and how good of a pitcher he was boat with anybody who's good and has fame and all that you know it's not all sunshine rainbows behind the fucking curtains. You know there's always some bad shit going on so i'm happy in. He's he's he's also show ripped out. It's crazy though. Like the video of walking at the ends as they're like closing up doc. He's like a ufc fighter. Now like a straight up fighter. I'm forgot how fat he was there. The highlight of him on the tampa bay. Rays shutout was like that summer day. Yeah look for hit shutout like he looked so fat even the best when he was fat i know he was. I wish they did my only wishes. They did have nothing to do with the alcoholism but they did five minutes on this. How much he hates the raise just randomly just in the middle of the documentary. Just start ripping on all because he hated him through his whole career. Especially obviously you know this twenty nine thousand nine thousand eighteen version or whatever but i wish they did something the race would have nothing to do with it but overall i really enjoyed it. Hbo max joe check it out And yeah i've got nothing else here. Obviously just hope they hope police. I'd dj love god. We've got some time off here which is nice and if dj does sign at any moment you will hear from us in the same fashion. You heard us like with coal. You know that we're not gonna wait. Whatever we'll do. Emergency pod came to. I think it's ten or What year is it. Twelve year anniversary of the yankee signing mark to share pretty dang december twenty third when it got announced. I was in the basement with my friends after school last day before break and just go nuts being holding like the guy that same ben friend over and i was like holding like a mistletoe over like my ass or deck and be like. Oh that was good. Wow what would you hold it over your s. What we wanted to kiss your like actually like kiss you dick. I probably what the fuck just happened. Like just my ass kiss my ass okay. Friends yeah i as- whatever you want teacher just my ass. I got no problem with you. Do your thing man. you a f- guy. Oh yeah well so even door. That's that was probably. Because obviously i wasn't really a college basketball fan with mellow like i don't think i was into it. Then but david door. Those teams were like they hooked me big time.

Long Law it was just so nice out in the city which was good but it also was oppressing. 'cause it's like reverse. We should be out here like going fucking Brunch or watching a baseball game going to the bars like doing shit and it's like we can't. It just sucks. Where Lily Literally just aren't able to do anything and I hate it. It's not it's just I don't know man talk about. Asu got really depressed yesterday writing a blog and I forget what blog it was but by the end of the blog I I realized through at the end as a PS Mike Memorial Day. Weekends out like. We're just not going to have a moral memorial weekend is it felt fuck definitely out definitely out. I mean there's a state of the state. Homeowner in New York is through fifteen so memorial. Day's what ten days after out? There's no way it's going to be like a typical Memorial Day. We even if a miracle happened. It still wouldn't be the same. Well that's still not happening when you're going to be inside the Memorial Day weekend with nothing to watch a depressing. Start to the PODCAST. This isn't quite but we're going to build their way up because we do have luke void coming up which has been detached sit down. It's about an hour long shooting the Shit we talk. Nfl draft. We talk his injury. We talk How he's spending quarantine what he's watching great interview but On fact about was should've brought up to him axel was fake guests produced the first time he came to the office when I wasn't on. Yeah you were just the one I was like teaches. Pretend on the produce. A real quick. Let me listen abusive. Nothing much has his Mush Madison. It's ridiculous and we talk about it on the Pod if you're listening to this hopefully by now he's finished. I was GonNa say I feel like people? Listening right now are still going to be watching each something and this comes out on a Wednesday Thursday. And he's still going. I texted mushroom before something. Hey we should try and get luke like to watch tonight or something like that and the moment. He joins our zoom. He's like he just looks at Martin he goes like Mr. What was it. Three eighty four whenever Mr Three thirty three. Yeah he's been watching that athletes are at you'll like we're all like Scotman Pelt Jared Goff Luke Floyd. They're all tuning in the March Madness. Because that's all the sports. We got hit so sad sad whether they have to go through this. I can't let Tommy. I might have to just mail. You are because I can't look at your wall anymore dude right now. In New York City apartment should be we fucking for. I'm looking for a new apartment that they should be given. These should away like hotcakes. New apartment June first. So he's running back now. I want to get someone new this time to switch apartments. Are you guys all Lewis? You say let's see what could be a good time. Are you doing which spider and your other roommate? I don't know what spiders spiders always like might move to Jersey so I can gamble. He's always making up his he. Does I never know what's going to do? But at least be me and my other roommate and hopefully spider to spiders like with Dave every second of the day I feel. He can't live in Jersey. Yes he's going to be like Dave's Dave calls upon him. He's gotTa be there in ten minutes. If you can't do that for a couple out who knows. I don't think my leashes up till the end of the beginning of that time to move for sure but also like open. Get some good real estate deals. Yeah due to Europe trying to escape as well yeah. You're you're getting fucked by this. Yeah you're trying to really get out planning on June first moving somewhere right obviously has taken over every ASCA But yeah so I mean. There's little authors talk around the pot of how Manfred came out today and said that before too Speights baseball we talked about that on the planet. He has his own ideas. A little bit A little interesting take on it because like he doesn't think there's going to be a season he think it's going to be. He thinks is going to Florida and Arizona and I feel like a lot of it was good to hear a player like like I feel like candy was. Let's do whatever it is. The same thing looks just like yeah. I don't think that's going to happen to me this way. So that was just a little little spin on everything going on On on that we watched the Jordan. Doc would you think Jordan Duck? I mean for me like I mean for all of us obviously like Michael Jordan sort of like a more of like a folk figure than anything else that you don't. Obviously we don't remember playing or watching him. Play and awful took our us. What is a wizards players player to US right? Like I don't even remember that at all but like it took me two hours to be like Jordan. Probably was better than liberal like that. That's a debate like we can never way on really like opposite. We've only seen Lebron play but like just to see like the second year we dropped sixty points or whatever against the Celtics have playoff aimed like okay like this guy. You know pretty good. It was a battle. He agreed with the documentary. The day after Libron one is Championship in Cleveland. That's when he said would document. That's why I wrote that blog. Yeah so. Espn dropped at story of how he only agreed to the documentary because Adam Silver was the director of MBA entertainment time. Basically like the guy who would try and spice up the NBA with like behind the scene stuff and they knew this is going to be his last year in Chicago and they were on the NBA. No one thought he would come back and he got Phil. Jackson agree as long as like they could have some closed-door things every now and then Jordan only agreed if Jordan had full power on when the documentary came out and for just twenty years Jordan said no spike. Lee asked to do it during the fuck Outta here. Danny Devito didn't even he didn't take meetings with these people. Never mind sit down with them and then all of a sudden this guy I think his name is Mike Tomlin and he's been behind coach Carter and of Varsity Blues a few other things he he security meeting behind the scenes with Jordan's People Jordan. Other meeting was happening. He kind of just showed up in the middle of a draft draft prep whatever and sat down with him the his important people Jordan. They knew this had to happen. Like the doctor had to come out and it happened to be the day of the Lebron created with Cleveland. So like you could tell Jordan was feeling a little like you know like out of the picture a little bit and we'll come back and just very thing that sold him was the he was like big booklet of the planet. All that last page is all things. He's been accredited for this. Drug is producer and The Iverson documentaries one of them Jordan stopping stress goes you did this and basically Jordan. I cried darkness. I watched it three times and he'd basically went over to ramp. That shook his hand. He said let's do it. That's pretty cool. The whole like backstories bury. That's stuff fascinates me that like you don't know you never hear about that. It's also pretty hard to mess up Michael Jordan Documentary Kazaa fucking goodies. There's one like sixty second montage of him playing and it's just like make believe what he was doing like. He hangs in the air for like one of the perfect. Yeah like the Dunkin Shit when he hit his head on the backboard while his neck on the bachelor. Jackie wasn't even his head his neck. Fucking insane I mean you went to a shitty school but besides that it's pretty cool Yeah so I guess that's forward to every Sunday with two hours. That but Right now you're GONNA have Luke Boycott Documentary Luke. Boyd interview He's at Dallas the second time on the show always good here in front of them. We shoot the shit with him So right now go check out boy entrepreneur. We lock him in the starting first Baseman for the New York. Yankees number fifty nine voight Lucozzi gone wrong.

I hope to God because I'll lose it if they do. Take Herbert because we just got one by hope. They're just saying it's so like somebody before the X. Alliance hoping like the Lions think like I don't know I just if they'd take Herbert. I'M GONNA lose my mind. There's no other I mean. They've got him in his stupid but I don't think he's I think Herbert's like atrocious. Like I don't want any part of him at all at any like I wouldn't take him. In the first three rounds like quiche chose me nothing same. What Jalen hurts. I hear way too much. Jalen hurts Jalen hurts is just not good Corbett Bro he. I don't even think receiver in the NFL.

You can probably use him in like goal-line packages like to take take the ball. Enough like wildcats shirt. I could see that working. He's not fucking starting quarterback and people talk about him going in the first round. Yeah you saw it on the Clemson game. He was off on the Clemson game. And in that Clemson defense by six guys get drafted on it right so Roost but you gotta learn to get a read coverage demanded quarterback especially in the NFL.

If you had to pick a team to be stuck in quarantine with who you choose Dhabi. Gambling is never a dull moment. We finally got heat. That guy doesn't have any social media and God bless them for that. We finally got him on the pond and was just everything you could ever ask for more craziest parts of me. Though is that he streams he was streaming on twitch with like judge and Wade and Britain for like five people. Five people watching him he just streaming that's time Catalina nutshell loves it. He literally is obsessed with Games. He loves it and he like. I had a problem with my place nations He walked me like through the whole process. What had to do customer support? I mean he's so with it he's like he just he's a he's like a six thick-headed I am. He's like when it comes to video games. Like if you fuck with this video game or even like talk shit about his video games up your ass I will fucking like feature s because he like obsessed with him. I walked off on him and he was pitching themselves so that was cool. He was not happy about that moment but he sent me a friend request. Let's fucking go. What kind of games are you into? I think what are they? Your big man obviously right. I'm fucking terrible though. I'm outside of me being a computer. I haven't beat any of the ONATE for Ciller placards. Did you jump events? We're talking shit that you're not the meeting yesterday. Did you not show up? I showed up. I mixed up the Times. I had forgot who was like central time reducing time I would ever Gotcha got there. I lost my first two. I had three first draft accentuated. Tommy McCaffrey to what did you turn the lights off. Did you see the Fox going on? It would be the drafts. There's life behind you goal power. I think that there's like a fucking hurricane outside. I don't shut off yeah. There was no lights on the outside life. Oh I don't like got so you're you're going to die? I'm just as well. Yeah when you try to McCaffrey for like nothing because the what Canley said you just throw the ball right? Yeah I am I I. Six Games had twenty nine six years. Coma God you have. All the bad in is so hard you want like. I'll have Sammy Watkins and Emmanuel Sanders. And I'll throw this ball is somehow to get deflected free times inaugural ticket and I'll throw a one on one and in the DB one hands it and fucking pick six. Is it like I? Don't get it to me walking shit. It's impossible to throw deep. He has to be wide open. No wide receiver. Madame has ever won a one on one battle for a ball. No you're right. Open five guys. Tackle you within like your first half after you catch the ball to joke. It is so hard while I'm talking shipped likely to selling Sammy. Watkins can't get shit. I Love Matt Employees. You played football like are you able to read the defenses and all that I'm trying to is like is like when I see like like the routes are Out there and like I kinda hot route one like I know which one I got it too and I'm like Oh Shit Oh shit. He's got three guys on that. I panic approach. Someone else at six. I'm trying I'm trying to get better at it. Pretty good but yeah. That would that should help. Have you placed Turnovers have you. Have you played the show? No I haven't You're pretty they made you pretty shoot up in that game like almost any time surprise humps. No enticing him to get better than baseball just trying to get me I on the chopping block here now but I would say anytime. Canley uses you in the show. He hits a home run like almost every time. It's a said he sent me an Hicks. He kills it with like a hundred with Labor. He can't he's like thinking about moving glacier to like the seven whole or something he just can't do anything he doesn't want to insult glacier but like is nothing you can do at that point. That's me. Giancarlo Giancarlo crabs the plate. You just can't anything you throw junk realm you cannot say I have been in our league for Borstal. I hit Giancarlo seven. Just do it. I don't care I hurt hurt. His feelings whatever. GotTa do it. Hey you gotta do what you want. So you said your favorite player which are what time you go. I I was GonNa say who's your. Who would be your least favorite person to be stuck in quarantine with you said? Your favorite would be Tommy Canley. Who'd be someone you dread with? Come on Canley said what? Clint right out of enough said Canley would be his least favourite. Right drought crazy. Yeah I don't know that's a good thing because everyone has had a lot so that's a big thing and you all like each other very good all boy so all right there you go. We don't want any trouble here. You did see the quarantine house though that you were stuck in with For a short porch we had you with Ford Swisher holder in. Paxton that at my best of all time. That's as good as it gets. If you let it would have been like a Frat House. So who would you guys just make Ford the bitch though and like go get the groceries? Because he's the youngest. Just make sure the beer in the fridge. That's got to kind of be like your pledge of some sort So Garrett Cole. How mad were you with the Yankees? Go Out and sign him. So you can't hit home runs off anymore. Held that against me right when he called me about changing the number now. Oh Yeah Oh no. What was that conversation like? I just smiled. That's why you can't do you. Garrick Ball Kalsi. What what's that like? Like what what happens there while here is going to happen because you now he's got. He's been forty. Fives is Pittsburgh and you know. He's got a bunch of time and I didn't have forty five in my locker and I showed up when he got traded from the cardinals. So I was cool. You know just did my own bargaining and got myself some quantities. So you're not revealing. Its own dog. We kept each other some cool expert. Good enough I will say that Homerun did we money. I had yes runs Yankees in the first inning and that was like two accidents in it was just on the center. I always remember the homerun little moment there. That was six years ago. There's no baseball anymore. Sierra G so I feel like there is a little optimism. Small Manfred came out today and said he fully anticipates them playing. I guess that would mean Arizona. What are your initial thoughts about? Abiodun season in Arizona. I don't think it'll be really. Yeah I there's been there's I mean literally could save something it could be the opposite thing so I feel like I've heard from really good source like six different things so I think I would say the truth part of it is I think once the end of May hits. I think we'll start a spring training game now and I think it'll be in Tampa but I don't know I mean I can't see that's true or not because I have no. It happened with it but I would i. Hopefully we're back down at Tampa and hopefully plan by sometime this summer. Do you think it'll be at like Anki stadium and stuff are in Florida or I don't think I don't think it'll be the city hall are until you just don't know what this thing because we've never experienced before so it just depends on how New York recovers Places in the house right now so you know and there's just so many people up there so they have to. They have to keep us contain. You know now they said this thing doesn't like warm weather so obviously would be better to plan or states until we get it figured out right. Also confident won't be Arizona. No I'm not saying it will. I think it'll be all this other states. I might be like Grapefruit League in Catholic thing just like go to your spring training sites time. I'm like if they had said like the season starts in two weeks. How much time does it usually like for you as a hitter to get like like back in midseason form almost like when? I when I play it you you don't even feel like he played baseball before. I the first week of bad since. Like wow as. I think most guys like between like thirty or forty at bats. And that's really easy to get. It's not really us because everybody is going to be ready to go once. It has just like you said we're includes again hitting the double running the ball out. Kinda thing It's just the starting interest man and you know you know because it sucks because I know like hamper and coal and The starters are like almost ready for like you know. Eighty one hundred inches which is kind of what you want your started to go into opening day so I know those guys are saying ready to go. And they're still don't during the throne programs in touch with that Blake so it just depends You know 'cause they'd have to let us know they can't just hey. You got shot Friday right like they had set heads up for when this is GonNa happen you know. Obviously we need a spring training again so when and where and hopefully hopefully hopefully it's in two weeks but you know I don't know the way I the way I read tea. Leaves like with the man for today on that? It sounds the same thing you're saying. Where end of May Memorial Day weekend you guys released reporting or we know when you're reporting like there's going to be in the next month we're going to know everything that's going to happen if you like. I agree unless something crazy happens but yeah I think allow the states now are starting to open up a restaurants and stuff like Misao. So we'll see how that goes and How no man socks hate it? A lot of people are losing money and losing jobs so hopelessly turns around men and people are losing shitty situation. Yes it's horrible. So there's like a bunch of like crazy rule that they could experiment with you. Know whether it's you guys sitting in the stands not the dugout and six feet away from each other or not going to happen. You don't out the window okay. Problem with US starting to is like because they're gonNA have to obviously test us all right all been all over the country wherever we live in and then like you know. Hopefully no one has it. But I'm sure someone's GonNa have it because we're going to have all the forty man in the non regards to you could have waves and not put us on a towel or I don't know for living places like there's just so many obstacles to this so but that's not going to happen. I mean for all fine than we should all be able to sit down and play got some he literally when the Lacombe together? We're in the top of the other. You know or in the training room together in the waiver together. Like it's touching everything like it's impossible to clean everything we use every time you use it you know. How much of be? If there's only so much you can do to. Just stay away from it like it's just like together. It's nothing you can stop at that point because seasons. I mean we're GONNA have meetings and stuff too I mean. What are we all going to have to like? My question was going to be. What do you do with minor leaguers? Because he I I'm sure they would expand rosters to forty and all that for the whole year but last year there were thirty handke's on the I L. And you're never gonNA happen so hopefully hopefully crises working his magic there but like. I don't even know. How do you keep minor leaguers fresh and all that is not gonna be Minor League season? There's no way so there's a lot. There's a lot of questions that happen. But it seem like it's trending towards some sort of because the alternative is you guys. Don't lie and obviously money is involved there so everyone wants to play at some point. And I feel like there's GonNa be some sort of compromise assuming everything medically deaf trends. And that's why they're saying. Go Your Spring Training Sites. 'cause all the minorities had backfield so so you can keep you know all those guys shave because I mean think. About how much money do the Yankees spent like in you know overseas in the in the draft? And all that stuff. You can't just throw that money away Ryan throw away is you have to keep ready And that's I don't know what's going to happen. Amelia's a little bit. So yeah that in my manage sucks speaker that has gotten a chance to feature is on Jason Dominguez yet. No no I I mean. Once he sixteen but he was on the Marley side of the time he's young. They're not going to bring him over here now. That's like I feel like you. You'll see him. Maybe two years or something like that. Maybe you'd snip him but he's like two dogs even player at this point. He's like seventy. Yeah Kazan when I was in. Saint Louis now is on the Marley site to allow. Those guys don't shop till the end Mike for extended stuff because of sixty and I can't imagine claim pro bowl when sixteen so not saying he's not talented but like she got let you know. Yeah I get scared with his height machine. It's like too much like Mickey Mantle and Mike Trout like. Let's let's dial back. Let him play high. I don't see how he does it. Matured one hundred percent So we talked a little about the injury So we had you on last year like mid June and then go to London at the end of the month. And that's when you know it really got exposed but were you hurt before that moment like the way you starting to feel it a little bit before that. Maybe playing through Yes at that point to the mid season. You're Kinda just crying into everything but you know I was having a lot of back issues like because I think overcompensating because I think you know those other certain other muscles were already torn and then it was kind of missed last threat in that. Ten is muscle that I tore in that. You know 'cause the whole thing so I I don't know I don't want to blame it on that. I don't really remember if I was feeling it then. it's just. I didn't realize how bad it was and I was trying to come back and I didn't realize how bad is actually hurt and how much I like. It's not one hundred percent in chocolate baseball. It's IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. Especially being a pitcher ca powerful hitter when I need my legs impropriety to be connected in. I was frustrating but now it's competitor and I wanted to play boys especially postseason coming up in the snow September race So I learned a lot about myself last year and it's frustrating. But you know like Ado be there for my boys and then you know obviously fixed up ready to go twenty twenty even though it's a shift near so far so yeah I feel that. How hard was it to just sit back during that October? Run like that and just kind of like a help. It's like it's got to be the worst feeling in the world sort woman but I'm not going to be a bad team. May Be there so I traveled a team in the you know they know it sucks not being a part of it. But it's even worse when you when you see all these guys you know grinding grinding and you want to get to the world series in they lose. It's just just heartbreaking as you're with them all year it's this games harm any hundred sixty two games and your chances are slim to win the world series and then when you get so close and then you lose its. It sucks man's frustration. I didn't want that I we. I just took this interview towards a downturn That was my fault. I didn't mean to do that But I on question I was GonNa say before asking everyone this You mentioned how keenly always annoys. Ought BEANO. He told us this we asked about. What's Your What do you like on the team plane? What do you like to earn a long plane? Ride maybe to Seattle more on the West Coast. What are you usually doing on the team plane? And what's the Bible in General Tommy Canley knowing everybody Kayla usually play video games Non playing cards? There's like five or six guys. I played cards with point. Cards like literally level gun. Who's the Nacro have a couple of cocktails cars man? That sounds fantastic. But now against what's article over to play with yeah we had a revolving door last year. Is Somebody got hurt? But it was like Hicks Way Gary Romaine Who wants to play? Ej got to be in that group right. Now there's a there's another table that plays cards to on out the money to play at that table. Are you pretty good? Would you say you're pretty good carpenter? I'm okay I'm okay so you know it's cards meant sometimes it goes away. Sometimes you want. Your car is out the window but most time. It doesn't go on my way. Not Great The the nickname meet I feel like has kind of surfaced more than it has in the past. Is that a new nickname or have you always have that? Because that's the time he calls me. So Tommy stuff yeah Jonah. Okay he because he when you're up at the play it'll be the show he just says meet like a hundred thousand times so that's just a. Tommy originated nickname like an art group chat. It's like he'll be like hey. Dj Clint meet in letter. Play Games like it's never. Luke is meeting all very soclean. Luke. You like it or hate it. I don't mind it because everybody calls me. Everybody thinks I would be like the perfect cut meat if they if the person you had to eat so I gotta eat. Hit that Yeah we'll wrap it up with with this unless you guys have anything else. You became an author recently Guyana bloop. That's pretty good thing to throw on your resume. Their the the Children's book called Luke's Baseball Story. Tell us a little about a little bit about that. Yes so last year I went up to When I was in the Bronx on school hurt and I got to run around to kids in you know whereas like amount and a half from stadium and they had never had the got the principles Air Flight. Twenty eight years. My Daddy said he has not been a player there when pilots. That's crazy So I thought this year when I go back I set up like a tour like three or four schools. I was going to go to the Bronx Area. Count Stadium and we thought it'd be good to know kind of have a book to take the kids and you know I was. I talked about you know working hard and making sure you're listening to your teachers and you know You know the ways I got to the big leagues and stuff like that. It's like it's some gym class with but I thought this time I could bring my book. Share my book with these kids and you know. Kinda put another face in front of him. Because when I was younger and I saw Mark Maguire for the first time it struck with me for the rest of my life. And that's something. I always remember so I thought it'd be cool to to go show these kids. What's up you know? Because I don't know if a lot of go Yankees Games in you know. Sit Down for thirty minutes to an hour and hang out with them. No Show my book you know you know. Have some inspiration for them. That's pretty good so it's on. Is it you combine anywhere Amazon. All that this whole thing messed it up dude. It's not out yet. It's been published. I think that shipping all shut down because John Destroying again. It's just ruining everything but there are a lot of pictures. I if I can read you can read it. Marty until this pitches literate. I think the last story I read willingly was like in fourth grade so I will buy this. Maybe I'll get through it in in one sitting that'd be nice. I hope hopefully it will fade out.

Episode 109: The Avengers Have Assembled

"The. I'd say Todd at five as go the Bosnian love these Aaron Boone, the leader, his first batter. The. He's. Just to the I would. Portrait right. Lots of what's out and welcome to another edition of the shore force, presented by Barcelo sports. I'm your host hubs hopefully about a list. Michael is Tommy spokes. Tom Scully eastern army stupid. What's going, but what's up? I'm hoping that you do have a less by me, Joyon life. Any episode where it sounds like you have a speech impediment is good episode of book. So I have it's Sunday night, me and my friends, we decided to start drinking five o'clock today when you're next to Margaritas spot, right by our place, my future plays them up there yet. So we're kind of winging at this point I didn't wanna go home. So here I, I don't have a less. I just don't. Every we ask it another Assode where you were like very drunk, which not that you are right now. But the one time you were very drunk, you came through with quite a less. And you had one, you didn't know I had it correct. I didn't know I had it while we were recording, but in post production, I'm listening. Throw it was like, okay he definitely has a list and we're going to tell it was because you were neabry aided or because you are on your phone like walk in the street. So he wasn't. We weren't sure what the connection was. But it wasn't there. Another instance after that of you also sort of having less, I can't tell our fucking listeners fucking with me or not. So I don't know is a chance. They were but in my like the people I was with that night. We were in Cleveland. I think the extra playing the Red Sox excuse me, and they, they told me I didn't listen they woke next morning. We're listening to a new you hear yourself on the gas when like no. And then I. Literally listen, do I was on the shitter and this apposite like throw my brains at the same time, and they were like you the Silas, don't it sound like I had a problem, little speech problem. So. I'm already I'm Ernie giving these -iety than like it's coming through 'cause I don't have a list. But like I might you don't. You definitely. I hate you so much. All right. Good news, the Yankees and not only beat the rays and the Astros this week, they went six in one, they, I guess, the, the raising of the did end up winning. So we I don't know. Exactly. True. But going into Sunday, English the largest lead in ale east it for them. Yeah. Two thousand fifteen which is crazy to me, a five hundred twenty eight that's one and they blew that lead twenty fifteen that's when the blue got price and they got hot down, ratchet feels good to have dominance in east again. I mean it now haven't won. It's twenty twelve but we're going to take back these by shirt were taken back east and you know, it feels good to be the kings, for at least right now. Yeah, it's nice to lose a game on Sunday like we did. And we really weren't close to winning and it's like, all right, we're okay. We're still. Okay. Like it's fine like the Red Sox losing a fun. Sacra acquire for the podcast. I know crops is in here, but Matha Jerry. The Red Sox are below five hundred homeless year. Not great. I don't think that's a stat you want socio relation to be below five hundred. They stink. They lost to to illustrate or three to Blue Jays. They fuck it suck. We're gonna get into Stroman later. He's become my favorite person. Maybe baseball not associated the Yankees right now. I Marcus Stroman, but the Red Sox stink. But yeah, just say the raise the raise one today show gets a four and a half Nelson five and a half. But I mean it just it just feels like this is a team that this is this is a good. This is the team that you want where they can just be so dominant like they feel like they are the Dow. Team daily straight American League American League in whole like even the Astros, obviously, don't them Springer right now or Korea and altuve Ega, stay showed up, but not playing his best. So it's not like. When we went to Houston early in the year we weren't. At full strength at all. And then when Houston comes we're not they're not a full string. So it's kind of unfair to judge where they are. But you can kinda you gotta see we all Mexicans numerically like yeah. I don't I don't we? I know we both don't consider Minnesota threat. Minnesota tweet out Saturday night. I was like, Yankees are better than whatever team you root for and I could see maybe dodger fans having a great with that. I mean these adorable little Minnesota Twins fans come in through be like oh, we have better records as if we didn't take two out of three from the twins with, you know, nobody in our lineup but couple months ago also the twins. I mean, the just let's wins six last time. The twins have been in the playoffs. Innings of knocked him out five of those times. Do not scare me. So like for them and I love to have a little bit of confidence. Now, it's cute. It really is that they think they're like a, an actual threat really, really on at the end of the day. They're the Minnesota Twins and they pose. No threat to the juggernaut. So I would agree. I mean the Red Sox the raise the twins. You know, they'll be all right. I think tank, he's an Astros are the two most talented ball clubs of -ly. Yeah. I mean they have they have the best run differential in baseball the twins. But when you look at the rotation aside from Berrios Easter of I mean, let's be real. I mean we've been really here like no, no, I'm not scared twins whatsoever. In this could be played over whatever pockets, you want in four months. And you never know they not going out move. It's making a lot of boys. Putting it down no longer in front of my lab. So you're being a lot of your log complaints here. But anyways. A lot to complain about. No, not not scared wins. Never had been, but I think the Astros are better than what we saw this weekend. I think that's a fair statements make they'll, they'll get crab craze fucking stud Springer killed us all the time. I thought his best ever gonna come against the Yankees. So you know, I am. We also skip Garrett Cole. Let's let's you know let's talk about that too, and Verlaine there. I mean we get through off them. Sure. But yeah, it wasn't. It's very similar to when we when there and used didn't have our guys. So there's not much you can take begin. Granted still six seven is the raisin Astros coming into the week where we are kinda struggling a bit. Unbelievable. You know, you take that every fucking single day. I, I actually he's only five and two. Great, great, six. What is even better than great? So I'm I'm feeling great right now. I guess we're gonna go through every game on Paxton was good. That's what we need for five in L. Filings. You want more than five. Sure. But if I'm gonna filings one seven case. Really discussed Thursday from the last episode, but I mean that was just really a thorough. Shellacking not a ton to say, oh, I'm sorry. Actually, I had tried to tabs open a laptop to every game. I actually skip one apologies. Chat green. Let's check real quick back one hundred percent back. Right. So back. Yes. I I've been hesitant to say for a while. But I think at this point that he is. He's back. Yeah. Should they claim? It's with his is, is glove adjustment where it's higher to where his neck is rather than by waste apparently gets does motion more, whatever you fucking want. Great sounds good Chanterie's, a different guy in the last seven appearances we've seen him after that Nestor court comes in did is usual Corp, the stuff gave a few runs, but he is the God against acts for judge. I know you're devastated, but it made the most sense, interesting. He has options. Holder was the other guy who is options. You weren't gonna use Nestor courts asking you through what sixty pitches on Thursdays? You knew we're gonna use next couple days. So it just made sense mathematically to send him down. I think we'll definitely see nest a court the rest of the year even before, September we go to forty men, I think he'll be out before that. I just think in the sense of the moment where he through a lot of inches. Made the most sundown. I know you're devastated, so give me your. I love Nestor. I'll always being number when Nestor fan, but it did make sense as the way things, you know, sort of did shake out where it was able to pitch for you know, half the week or five days at ever anyway. So it made sense needs to be done. He didn't wanna lose. Maybe even though obviously up sending him to the I L a day later anyway. But I understood the move, I don't think we've seen the last of Nesta Cortez, though. I actually forgot so the last today's middle blur, which will get into a moment. But I forgot about mavens injuring and it's actually making me Saturday now because apparently is captured pop. Which is not a good thing to hear boom is likes to me, a while. Which makes things at least a grade. Shoe, pop rates, you train sorry. So we won't see him so August, maybe September holding onto that just suck because maybe. Is not the last guy, you want to happen to grab as you like, in that in that lessons. Judge Stanton glacier, all those people, but maybe just brought such energy to this team and other they can't recreate that, but it just sucks. The see him go down because we advocated so much for him to be the four men bench. And then he seemed to go down that sucks dislikes. Yeah. It it sucks to have a guy who comes through examining somewhat of the career year and improving everyone wrong. And, you know, just goes down to something you can't control. We've always said, you know, how are they gonna juggle everyone when everyone gets back? Well, injuries have a funny way of working themselves out, and this just sort of worked itself out, just in fortunate, wet and Sasha's is like nine games use hitting four fifty whatever I mean talking to derail team, I just would like him aiming to be team for a little bit at least the next week or two until they go to London thing after London things would have done trickier. But with by London you could you get the. Extra mandate. You twenty minutes in the roster. I'm pretty sure. So you could made it work roster wise. Now, I guess it is easier but I don't care may be five out. There doesn't make a ton of sense, usually, so you know, that sense. It's fine. But hopefully we'll see him again. August-september admit hopefully an actual be September. We'll see him again on the forty man they can make a work, obviously. But the rest of the game, I mean just absolute shellacking of the Astros, especially coming off the raise sweet. Yeah. You kill this guy vowed I've never even heard of before Gary hits non fucking bomb. Glazer has three run Homer, LeMay. Hugh, lemay. You start to find some power, which is kinda cool. You thought that was gonna come. He had so much. Oppo power Robbo just success in Colorado. He knew that was gonna happen in New York time haven't yet feel like that's coming lately, which could be, you know, maybe he'll get twenty homers, which should be pretty cool. But yeah. Thursday was very easy. And then although I did get a little tricky, I guess later on helmet. A little little annoying champion comment which annoyed me. But it didn't end up being Dodson for the rest of the week. But Thursday was very nice. Yeah. He hates us Chapman in that situation. But as only seven pitches and yeah, I was a big win. I winning the Astros this year, sort of a monkey off the back to. Yeah. Friday kinda same offensively Shange homers glacier homes, both to Rome shots. That was their second straight game of the weekend. With home runs kind of cool because Trump's had that little, he tried to punch it his numbers machine with math in Jerry that glacier, Gary only Homer, gets the Orioles, which is very incorrect. The indicating three SRI kimes. The Homer had Sunday off put. Yeah. I don't think the only team that Homer against the Orioles. That was a really stupid of reach for him. I thought he's better than that usually with his numbers, crunching them, and making him skew towards the Red Sox. Miserable base foreigners Dacian. But that was not a smart one of my. Yeah. I agree. Great. What now sorry. Throat. Now you lost me. I was just saying that it's very stupid that crop has picked glacier in Gary homering. It's the oriented like thing that's a student right now. I mean they've been tearing it up. I labor people saying he's not gonna have power is going to forty months this year. Maybe. Thirty nine is go. No. I mean look, do they mash up on the Orioles. Yeah. Because the Orioles stink but they beat up on every other pitching in baseball too, so you don't want to single out. It's a bad. It's bad. Look, when the chew guy, you single out one guy might eat nut nine in might probably if he says, healthy is going to break a single season catchers from home runs. And the other guy is going to come close to forty those guys you single out the head against one team and they're like going to be. I think all sorts, I guess, we'll talk whether or now so hats off to us to the cap Gus all the officers that were hoping for the us. Have made it the next round, which believe starts Wednesday Democrats, but Glazer DJ Luke, Gary. G. O N N, shunned even made it to. So they're on the next round tip accounts, us good job. I ask goes to job. Everybody in the short porch camly doing that now we gotta really put our hard, hats on and do it again next week. But we did our jobs of. Yeah. I want to. I always did mad when other teams stuff the ballot boxes I want to do that. I wanna be the team that stuff's the ballot box. I think Aaron judge somehow gets in the all star game starting that would be hilarious. So let's get it. I really would love to see geo starting to obviously DJ Gary void. So let's, let's focus up. I mean Wednesday to Wednesday noon to Thursday at four o'clock like twenty eight hours. Yeah. We are. Right. Why is it such a weird number twenty or but where we all you fans? I know we have jobs, unlike other franchise fans, but we gotta just be all over it and stuff. In those ballot boxes. Yeah. I mean I can admit a judge being there would be obviously weird. Do you think judge even accept it? You think he's like noble enough to non accepted all star vote. He got it. I don't know. I mean, just because of bonuses and stuff. I don't see how you kitten, however, that works. I'm sure you get more for being all star. So why would he say no show weird agent being played twenty games here, like by the touch timing? Well, actually take the back, Czyz mid-july, she's finding a couple of weeks. So you have more than twenty games, but up until this point. I mean is the mush feet all-star? I didn't it was funny to Bogor end Evers didn't get it. That's laris cause Denver's I think is leaving league in hits. Pretty close to it and geo just got over which Larry's your family's is better than Boston's in Bogart showing people were bitching ammonium. Bogaerts making it. And they're like, oh glacier, should make talking about renaming labor shouldn't have made the all star final vote of the top three. What are you talking about? Do you watch baseball glaciers this year? Guzman amazing his muscle. I mean that's just that's insane to me that I get ever scattered in GIO. Sure a over and. Bogaerts look very similar years, so. Yeah, no, I mean, Janke San showed up on Red Sox. Thin basically, what that boils down to. Right. Exactly. So. Yeah. Recipe, she'll obviously three or four the blemish, obviously comes in Sunday, where hap- sucks puts his whole mmediately, and people throughout the stats like oh he's. Nice view hubs, his like little stomach there on the Google hangouts. You could see it at home. But until ninety. Got body actually lost weight recently I was no big deal. But I went to the gym today. Yeah. You only interest three times that's twice others. No reason ago. For not gonna tell him about it. Show much. I actually I met one fifty two right now. I feel like one sixty five so completely different where thought it was gonna be back to Yankees quick hap- stinks. People throwing the stats where he's he seven wagons. The alias four four four four games. Everybody else's year team record. I mean, let's be real at Jay Haas of worst pitcher by far. We not look at these records stupid. I mean when have is again, for that we have legitimate, the fact that we are only plus ten dog entering Sunday was hilarious. We should have been pulsating my pin. Yeah. I, I have so little faith in J half right now where he will show those flashes sometimes. It's like oh, he could be that reliable lefty that he was down the stretch last year. But I don't know. He's just is not good. It's not a very good pitcher. And he will have those hill. We'll have those good games. I don't expect from throat, a stinker every single time he takes the van, but I don't have a ton of confidence whenever especially against the Astros of his never going to have a ton of confidence. He is not a guy can trust in a playoff game at all ever of the rule in easy. Next coming years, just won't do we must tell him money in him. I will never trust him in a playoff game, and it sucks. I mean everyone rotation when you're this good this record. Yeah. This division lead you trust. Everyone rotation. I will never trust happened last game just won't happen 'cause this ship. I mean this is terrible. Demonstrate down Sunday. I mean it was a house money game where like yeah. We went Semenov, as we are you kidding me? So six like, I will Blake Alabama Nyland's. Okay. Stuck as they did. Eventually gets really a little bit LeMay. You it's through and Homer because he hits everybody and they did make it three runs at six AM and you told me we have three runs for the sixth innings Burland. They're great win that game. We're gonna have a very good chance winning come close because of hat, he's, he's put us out of game mealy that sucks. I don't know. That's Ed is bothers me a lot. Sherry, like overalls. Yankees had good numbers can trust them. We'll talk about. Yes. All right. What did you say? Like you said, say was house money, but at the same time you have old timers day you have the chance to go for sweep you have, you know, superstorm lineup notes Goro. But Closys, I guess, to the death lineup that we've had so far. Nice that step on their throats had to complete a week to make a plea to week where you win seven at all. Seven games at home against two division two top teams in the AL. But, you know, it is what it is. We still can't be disappointed. But jay. He did kind of pooh-poohed the party a little bit. Right. I guess we'll talk about all day a little bit have the redoubt along. But marianne. Oh, so the show. I, I am convinced. He could still throw ninety two miles an hour and a cutter fastball. And just absolutely history baseball bats. He looked he's first pitch. Louise show today he legitimate Louis. So in you had no change the referral. Full speed, everything has got s few years. He was awesome down the whole. I'm convinced that trout does even get that ball. That's barbara. No matter what center. Fielder is. But Rivera chal the show by far he I mean he is an unbelievable athlete. And people always said that, that whenever you say who's on the keys, but always be Mariana marrano, I think he still might be the best athlete on the car. Blair, he he's he just does everything. It's, it's crazy. I'd still rather have him in the bullpen the Jonathan holder Louise Sesa. Yeah. So sign up for after over. You know, we feel like we need someone I feel like auto could still be an affective pitcher in the playoffs this year. I'm offering Marietto twelve million dollars a year. If I'm if I'm Brian Cashman just gonna do I do. Yeah. I would not ninth that he's better. John, Bentley Sesa. He's better. Nestor courtesan for being real. We don't want to be one of hurting feelings, but he's better Nisa quarters, David Hale. She's been four of the relievers. We have right now by Thuc nine question. He's battles people, and I would offer twelve million dollars even you said, he's an athlete and never issue that for some reason, my mind goes rightly to his him tort Terry's field, but he did make catching outfield today. But which like kind of vinegar himself a little bit, but doesn't get the base. It runs basis. He was rolling. Once he kind of you wash it. He just a second, and then he's like, oh, no one's even call the ball going to score. And he just wrecks China jets really. Billy hamlets had around the base. He was rounding second third Maryland, still has a hundred. A mom weeble athlete. And I said, just one back my life. Do you think jeeter will ever do it? I think he will eventually I mean obviously, it's a little weird right now at the Marlins. And I mean, this is mariota's first time back. And so, you know, jeeter would have an extra year on him. Just because you're tired when air later so it make the argument that it's not weird yet, and he hasn't been back. But I don't know. There's, there's something weird about geeder where he, he has that element waiter. I would be shocked doesn't come back full-time sound on the life. You just thinks he's too good for it kind of. But then again, he does love all the tradition and stuff. I'm not sure I think he'll be back, eventually, I don't know if it'll be anytime soon. If I were to put over on their of twenty twenty two would you say? I'm over. I'll take the under I'm gonna say twenty twenty two might be the hero tarts. Thing it's unsealing town. Ownership business, which might not be for at least three or four years. If he really just like all this model seems never gonna win thought this. Yeah. I don't I it's I I was thinking about it today. I don't know jeeter ever shows up here, at least in the next few years. It's it's it is an overall weird situation. Let's get into Saturday. Obviously Barsha the ball park. Everyone listening chew who showed up guys. It was probably the best turnout. We've gotten at Barcelo ballpark in the history of doing it at Yankee Stadium, probably for a few years. Knowing was awesome. I was kinda like by so start at five o'clock and by five thirty I was like holy shit. There's a lot of people here. It was awesome. Every great time on the beer actually worked time. Whereas, I think the first Red Sox won it was just phone coming out. It was kind of a botch. But this when they made him work, very funny. When we go to the bar to get our first drinks, they said, we only eighteen year old response. We are lafley, not if you saw Dr. Yeah, I'm in my. Mid twenties, and was in a Harrison, ammos, Emma show, the guys like you, you, you think I'm eighteen ammos, took a Mahamdou like look at my hair. Are you kidding me? You think I'm eighteen losing hair like this. That's ridiculous. But a role great time grazing. Everybody the game itself was insane. But I love every part of it. Yeah. Thanks. Everyone. Came out all the support. Everyone saying you listen to the podcast. Thanks for listen. Keep listening. I hope he is enjoy it. And yeah, I mean, we got a couple more this summer coming up, and should be fun, a big the win is we don't want it. We, we lost the Red Sox won a couple of weeks. So you don't wanna go onto to start the bar salt, the ballpark. So running back the five hundred. Yeah, it was a fun time to Saturday night at seven o'clock is such a perfect time. So, yeah, thanks come out. I really think that is the perfect time to do Barsha will you can drink as much you want. You know, the next day day off of work, and you tend to get down to the stadium you drink Billy's for a little bit. Whatever church of the game. I ended whenever we go to game a lot. Then every possible say the Yankees I five innings Yankees score. First Yankees money'll Yankees running align all four hit GIO shell hits. Run Homer in the fifth, we're getting no hit point, which is bizarre. But we'd Miley is we're all the good numbers this year, but GIO shell to run bond because he knows where the audience. Yankees give the brunt delete back right away to, to Stanton. Big knife, or stem big big two hits. Now they weren't like SRI mors rockets the field. It both went punt shortstop, but still were hit on the screws and were hard to feel an entity still was four base for the big man. So I'll take a big knife percent. Yeah. You know it's big for him when ever gonna have a big night without the home run. And people always wonder, oh, how's he going to come up with runners scoring position is they had done that so? Well, he's got usually strike out in those situations. So to come up with singles have before be is very big night. Very big night for him. Wasn't totally hot coming off the I L, but it big for him to have big kids in big moments against a really good team was was great for him. Yeah. Zach Britton made it very touchy late this three walks in the ninth inning. Chat apparently was unavailable. Just get around it. But I was legitimate terrified when Brin camp on Jilin any reliever tampon zone for that matter. Terrified autumn, Pino had a little discrepancy with the homeland empire. Ends of saying fuck you to him and gain the strike at our after that, but. Yeah. Britain, Brin puff fitting. I was not feeling great winning the game. Thank god. So I guess I guess all fine. Holder obviously earlier in the game fucks of the entire game mix. I mean, we we went from winning losing, just like in the blink of an eye. He is legitimate the worst. And they kind of feels like forcing him into games now where he he's clearly isn't good enough to pitch in these games, but never just forcing him and it just so stupid. Why are we doing this junk blur par lifestyle? It made it was confusing decision as I can remember. I mean having come into a four two game in the seventh inning just now Jonathan holder Kirkorian not when he's supposed to be pitching. And like I said, I think aren't boom, maybe just forgot the Jonathan holder is bad. Whatever whenever it was hours stunning. I mean you know luckily they did win the aim, but we have to stop pitch any situation where they chance to with. It's, it's just like I said, it's like they're forcing like like in Negros trying to make fetch happened. There were just trying to John Laura happen. It's just not gonna work. This is the Ben pitcher stakes is options my league send the fuck down. I don't eat John hollered back my lifestyle descending. The fuck damn. Little. They're so stupid. It was nights. We had his Ron, where he was pretty good. But at this point. Yeah, I'm has taken Donald Johnston holder. Maybe I think retirements dacas will move on the did set their franchise record twenty six games. The home run. It's pretty cool. I don't think of it. I don't know if it's like it's gonna brag about on Twitter about, but it's kind of a cool thing, which is that good at home runs with twenty street. I don't know the last time they did that the last two times, they did that they won the World Series, not trying to jinx it, but here jank sauce. And to have good stats. So they wanna. I'm gonna stay Yankees are winning the World Series this year just out. Got that feeling I'm ready to put it ready to put it out there into universe. Matt Brown is works on second third four. Now, he's second floor. He he's like y'all was this content is now may World Series champion, you may twenty nine and we figure thirty after that it's like all you people series. I the ship in talk about it. I don't wanna say we're gonna win the World Series that never works out for anyone. No one is ever conflict that you don't wanna championship works out. Just has an avid, not happen. That Oneida had that feeling all season long. And it worked out every fan had up it, they just feel different this year. Phil Hughes talked about that, too. How nine they were just good from start to finish but that's not this team is different. Seems different way, different. We were who have sixteen guys start the year. The first day with sixteen guys. It's the same thing it's a different year. I hate you people people's they win win the World Series right now. Like it's fucking June, July, July. Tommy, I look when I feel it I say that I feel it some saying fine pretty World Series from confident. So I guess we'll see this at the bottom of our spreadsheet here. We talk about will result, but we need. The pitcher is the guy who pitching us, the Red Sox and Sunday, EM, six sheddings, and in impart of that struck out sender Bogart's it might have been Kruschev Acas, ever, forget off the time ahead phoney strikes out. He just started screaming in that dug out of the Boston Red Sox in Federal Way. And that was Marcus Stroman, I happen to quote tweet one of his things that, that video exactly said, we need market, showman, in the Bronx in Marcus Stroman, happened to like that tweet gone all in a market Stroman. What are we thinking? Like I said, I, I like Marcus Roman a lot. I love him like a person. I think he's electric and he's got that big market mentality. I think it'd be a big additional rotation, but I do think the little bit of an issue with him is, you know, is he that workforce eight I feel like he just gonna come with question marks to in? He's have so many question marks in the rotation. So I don't know if he's just gonna be another guy with more question marks, but I do love everything that he brings terms of his attitude and his demeanor in rents. I forget. Two why? Is it any? No. He wants to be key to. Yes. You can tell you once again Toronto wants me for winning franchise. I, I have a very, very similar feelings at him than I did with Garrett Cole a couple years ago. And I forget if his pockets was even round when we were pitching for that could be I think it was be honest. But I wanna Gary cole- impinge drives badly aligned people have no give Clint give a few of the pitchers shore blog about it. I think it's you want closer hating me, we're all best at now, but I want cold badly when he was available and the Houston, and he was good. He's been good on Houston. Very, very good. I had a very similar feeling with Stroman complete different pitchers. I just have very good feeling Stroman. I think you'd be very good New York thrive. The audi- of fan base, I think he would he thriving immigra- lease. He Sean pigeon Fenway. So. I'm all Stroman. It can happen. So can happen now. Maybe that shit not the only trade we make do we need Stroman, and somebody else with rotation. That, that could be true. But I do want Stroman at some point. So I, I would definitely like, but with Amy want to get my head off max Scherzer. I have to do, but I'm gonna open my heart up to someone else. But right now it's still stuck on her. Now, the Shergar thing, the recent development obviously, there was a I think it was a daily news article written about him saying Kashmir will do whatever it takes. I know our producer Avery of Chaz on the guy, let's go TJ two. And then you dig deeper into it. It's like it's just a headline grabbing anything. I don't thing ending. It was one of the Yankee source which can mean anything. And it was basically saying the nationals owners are so all that they will never trigger and it's pretty peninsular pipeline would sucks because it's gosh, fiber Kashmir which to this podcast. Do anything takes to metro team, but it does sound the nationals. They're gonna hold try to launch him. Soft schedule coming up. It's your vibe this weekend to the whole week it competing more. I don't think Trump is gonna happen. It's early to either. So that's I said like the more we talk about other guys on the half to get out of my head, but he's just so goddamn good. But. Yeah. I don't think it can happen, especially with them sweeping and everything, I think will where we're going to have to come off shore Zor and going to new target him pitching. I think it was on Thursday or Wednesday. Kitchen with his broken nose and just fucking dominated Phillies now as electric, I could. I would just like watch them you like, oh my God, you mind. This New York gonna have him, probably it sucks. So whatever move on Mon and Stroman been on our. I just see what Shingo Bauer and Strom now be dream situation, moving on the raise of one, again the Trump and they wanna play in months over half the year doling it's actually happen. But the idea that is hilarious just makes no sense whatsoever. I don't have anyone would sign with the raise doing this. Like oh, yeah. Your son for having to families. Basically, Trent settle you should have a cave family. United States family. I don't hate that idea. I guess, but does the idea the race playing into countries, I guess it gets up the Antes playing half the season in the Trump, which is fine. But when I saw that come across my desk this week I laugh a lot, it would think it was from the or something. Yeah. It's crazy. Don't mainland up just move the whole team. Montreal. Right. If you're gonna go that route, it would be kinda cool. I guess, to have team through city to see how that happens and what it is too much, because like you said, it would just mean less days of the Trump, which is a positive, but I don't think they'll of the happening, but the fact that it's even an actual possibility is insane. I think threat said it, it's an idea coming from a bunch of people that have run out of ideas of how to fix the raise enteric may. Yeah, I didn't even play to playing Saint Pete. So the, the best idea, probably just moved into the city of Tampa Bay with his fans and build a Bill better Rena Bill better stadium where there's those no catwalks everywhere. So that would probably my best bet, but I've no problem with Montreal. Also granted people forget Montreal had a bad fan bitch towards the end of their years, where the heavily twenty games in Puerto Rico at the very end of their run it forget that. So it's not as big of the famous as you think it's a better fan base in Tampa in Saint Pete, but it's not as crazy as but still the of a dual country team where they be called, like, I mean, people thrown out the rays, which is electric, but if they were to call them like the Montreal rays of Tampa Bay. That's just Larry. I mean that's just I mean that for the hilarious of that little sentiment. So there's no way what they may. Maybe they would just. Like the rays with Montreal N Tampa Bay. I don't know how how you do it. But I am I kinda want want it to happen. Just we could see the chaos of it, right? Quick met story. There's too many stories, actually, so the first one the Mets fire Dave islands. It gets coach. And they promoted in eighty two rules was going to be a pitch coach at don't know how he's against them out in the back every day with a heart attack. David eighty chill pitching coach is hilarious. So when he made the made his debut, ammo being, I think it was nineteen sixty is manager at the time was born in eighteen ninety six that's how old the physical. I saw that on Twitter. But I mean that's just say that's impossible. That's impossible. It's nuts. That's that's insane. How, how is that? God. No. The modern era of pitcher would last fifteen years is way the guys any idea what he's doing. It's so hard to do anything at eighty two but especially like on the team that decision. It's just another another notch in that long line by grandparents die when they're in their eighties. They couldn't drive by them. I have no idea how they'd be able to manage pitching staff. Eighty eighty this is no way. Abba, obviously would not be imagined. The next chef the debated to this isn't what no what and that guys around the holocaust, this is no way that we will do that. So I don't know. God bless them the other Mets story made even better. I didn't think anything top this eight year old story. But Jason Vargas post game that I a guy from I think is daily news. Correct me if it's a different outlet. Buntings daily news of I guess it wa thought it was news, Newsday. Okay. If this news day, whatever I Don the name Thom ahead, but basically, he's in a tag of the ANC of the Mets. He goes Adam all time and Jason Vargas. Bases go fuck himself thread, the fight him is opposed cla best today, which is fucking, funny, and Kelly was going out onto, and they're just trying to fight reporters and they. Get more fights reports. Do actual Ponant in just so Mets. It's both Mets thing ever. I can't with defined cabinet on Monday in talking about it. He was his mind, but just the match being the medicine, the most Mets, whatever if there was a TV show about the most incompetent franchise in sports. They want an even manage to come up with some of the storylines that the Mets just do, actually it's, it's oh, great pinky fan. I it really. I mean, just look across town and to compare yourselves to them in zoo, the difference. It's so drastic shocking, it's just incredible that their major league franchise. It really you really take for granted how good the Yankees are on your organization and how well well we'll machine. They are when you see this shit happen over the weekend, it really is. You have to take a step back and realize how how fortunate we are to be fan of fucking historic franchise than this team with a trying to flight reporters and they're trying at high eighty two zero pitching coaches. It is true. You really take set back with you have the homeowners will be like, wow, like we're really blessed. It'd be in this organization and the Mets have this and they're not even good. They're not even even five hundred dollars. They are. And it's like it's it's you is really a blessing. It is a blessing to be New York fan. I don't want salad. Liz Gonzales Alison wanna throw it and then it mentioned was name, this is the game on Sunday was Gonzalves Mabel. What's the reason we lost throw that out there nine a lot of people saying that, but I've a feeling that might be it? We have to prevent listens Golden Gate know we lose a game where we were six. Of the rest of the week at one game. I'm going to point fingers pointing the finger Gonzales, it's just me swim doing so. Yeah. I'm Kazmi scapegoat now if you're looking to adopt a dog head on pig beach endless dot for dogs rape. Great situations got going there might prefer to stay from the Yankees in the organization. Stay with me stadiums crate to the Yankee on shore. But if you are the reason for my list this week with have been a perfect seven gonna blame. You know, problem I've no prompt when the singer big singer guy from not involved other than that, quick question. Do you think Tommy Canley would better, if he was named Tom Kelly? No. I think for the guy he is he's, you know, he's like this fun loving energetic, dude. He's gotta be he's gotta be topic. How Canley is like a if starter. I feel like. Yeah, Tom Canley is starting rotation. He's like a fifth guy in the Marlins now now might be. 'cause there's a guy named Tom Koehler starter. A very, very well might be the case. But Tommy Canley is the energies six or seven eighth guy and no doubt, again mega quick question. I write down shit as the week goes case. Can I forget a lotta shit at the worst memory loss in the world? So Tomcat only Tom Kelly down here, we talk about the Red Sox five hundred credits everyone Barsha logo next one's in July these date my head, but it's the Blue Jays one call game on Saturday. And the final one is Sunday. First weekend of August. Sunday baseball Yankees Red Sox might have a chance to just kick the Red Sox out of the vision by then they relegate him to another division into central play the central at be kind of cool. Other than that. I've got nothing else. Timing before we go into DM's. No hobbs. Did you mention Gary inches wristband thread? Yeah. I did not while we have a producer now who keep us on track with these things shout Avery. So guarantee inches responds critic labor, great falon Twitter. He got a little viral here he focuses on special. Thanks to Gary goes. Boom. Apparently also here. So Gary has a wristband for every single pitcher, apparently, and it's wild. I mean crazy while but it's just like the funny things the asked who is respond Ed before opens it, too has his. Fuck the squid. What is it? Cracking, sir cracking, it looks like a split and then with with the with the crack in emoji. He has someone else in my tax in. He has a kid maple flag with, with CC has black Santa, which is hilarious. Hap has darts don't know v should have darts anymore. That's not actually accurate Tanakh Japanese flag. That's fine damigella her. Mom, is German flag. That's funny. Sit Evie is just a picture of sevi-, the still actual creativity. The picture Severino. Johnny was on, you is cheese. Tommy type pants is the eagles of logo. Zach Britton is a bowling ball is singer is a bowling ball which I like that. That's created Chapman is fire those gas Batanes. This is a giraffe don't really know how that correlates whatsoever movies tall. Holder is the Mississippi State logo. What else we got here? Joe Harvey appears to be an angry guy with glasses. Lewis says New Mexico annoy Viva Mexico. Not New Mexico. Horta's appears to be some. I don't nasty Nestor courses high school, right outside of Mexico. Oh, it's his Miami Viva. I guess. Okay. Cool. Interesting Sheffield was a chef is about whether it's I just didn't think the garish carrots, have this creativity with his with his Wisden's, those very interesting. Yeah. No. It, it is interesting. I never like really seen a heard that before. But it's almost like the new Diddy tweets we don't get Didi tweets anymore post game win tweet. So now guys were spent. I guess what do you think about that now? No tweets. It would have been cool to have back by in. I guess nothing lasts forever. Yeah. Maybe it was like just a twenty twenty two twenty seventeen he's gonna for years. I'm pretty sure yeah, from at least more than once season, maybe he's going through some shit like, personally, I don't know. And he just sat and he just wanted to tweets I mean he hasn't had like the best need to sort of hot. I guess lately cooled off a little bit. But yet, no. He should bring those back if we were gonna slide maybe that's the thing we can go to our back pocket. Like, hey, let's just TD tweets again, we can get wrong though. Okay, cool. This week's the M's brought to you by loca. Now, if you don't know a local, as it's so comes to respond, and it has you highs lows of your life basically and everything can come through in the world. Now I'm gonna take fault for Sunday's loss. Annoy blamed on Liz until the blame around. But I did not wear my loci bracelet on Sunday. I did on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we want Bronco juju. So it's got the Hines from Mount Everest in the lowest from the mud to start from the dead seat of the month. And when you have it, it just brings you some semblance, your life than just, you know, the highs and lows basically. So he is regarded right now. Loci is offering you short porch listeners, an exclusive discount twenty percent of all gain day game day collect. Bracelets. So if you like their message, and you're thinking about getting one yourself, you're gonna loci dot com. L O, K, A, I dot COM, and use promo code porch. P O. R C H take advantage of the promo highs. So the highs of lewd, void being first baseman and lows of Greg bird beaner first baseman, he take him all you Bottomley gather that just represents the Yankees in your local libraries. So I think it's a no-brainer everyone should have on. So once again, twenty percent off, get a loci dot com. Enter promo code porch, and it will geisha L, O, K, A dot COM and from porch, PR C H that you're twenty percent of Avery what the ends we got. All right. So this one's from Colin. He just had a question about Clint Frazier. Do you guys think maven getting hurt and the Yankees, calling up Cortez, instead of Frazier is in foreshore sign that the Angie's are going to trade him? Well, I guess we're gonna see what that I am a feeling maybe Quinn comes back this week. Just maybe I just think it's a bad sign that they wanted to form bench with Mabon and not Clint. Because Clinton is by far the better player. But they wanna get Clint everyday at bats in the minors, prepping him for maybe to get his value higher. So I don't know. It's a weird thing either way because, you know, it's better than Mabon, but you wanna get every at bats, keep his value up. So I don't know time would EJ. Yeah. It's weird because like you said you is trade value, is true value. Better playing a little bit of major league pitching. Or is it better getting everyday reps mashing in triple? I am not sure. I think they ultimately wanted to go with a three man, Ben regardless, but they knew they couldn't in good conscience, do it with Noel Mabon was playing so I think him getting hurt sort of just made it easier for them to go to the three-man bench, and that at one of the force Frazier backup Agri with that. I think it makes easier them consciously because I think the fan base revolted, if he did send cut me been. I guess Clinton have options. It makes it easier that way. BF three managed definitely what they wanted to 'cause they wanna rely on bullpen Bosley. Alcee I still think click treated to honest. This one is from Brando, he asked would you rather? Have Bob Sheppard John sterling, or Morgan Freeman Morgan Freeman narrate a documentary about your life. One of the best gushes out in the short Porsche, I'm gonna destroy. Cancel this. Sterling. Cancer. My back reality. Who's the third one? Sterling shepherd and hope Morgan Freeman. Anthem for fuck Friedman. If you through Scully in there, I consider it, I think VIN Scully would be held in tro. I also would I have a sauce for like Kevin Kassir Bradley Cooper did it. I remember we're only doing these three these three sterling ones. If our I I, I we're look is a short porch guest, and we are loyal, John sterling lovers. This one's from Andrew he asked. You guys think that are all the Chapman will eventually be a hall of Famer. I think he will be I think his numbers are going to be really good. And, you know, he's got you know, coming out coming out of Cuba. Lefty flame thrower, has some of the hardest pitches in MLB history. I you know, it's different now with relievers, they pitched less stuff, but I do think he'll be hall of Famer Asia won the World Series. She wins another one of the keys this year, another one next year that we three snaps good just as a, stay out of the warring shots of domestic violence all that. No more domestic violence. And then I think he's had a clear shot. Yep. Agreed. Yep. That's it. All right. So that was going to be short porch in the six one highest, maybe not highs visually more, but going to Sunday with highs lead was four years. Very good, Saturday, probably loot ruined relationships that I had ruined. Maybe on Saturdays answer drunk, so to the caps me, I guess, and then yeah. So we have the Blue Jays coming up. We got the little break in stupid fucking London series to think I'm doing a live thing with corrobos four on Saturday Sunday, which would be worst thing in the world. But holy very them when I'll be in London. This going with my dad and cousin. Yeah. Personal originally thought we'd probably going barstool deadline that's going to happen. So I'll try to do some stuff on there. Just report will have some representations. There are you going to the games? You are right. Wong on. Yep. Heading. How's that were going to London to just during that weekend? I'm not going to the games that could very well be a situation. We just go to London with your dad and hang out a very, it just be coincidence. Now where I'm going for both the prices are ridiculous. Her minimum get in is like six dollars or something. It's enough for tickets. Weren't that much like airfare elsewhere or crazy? Maybe now it is you probably got him ahead of time. But I know our expensive. But if you need see key go hip seek from coach your ten percent off your first purchase. That's show. We'll see you back here on Thursday. And yet. Right. Let this John sterling, you've been listening to short porch byproduct of barstool sports. Don't get what? Never movies, mechanic. Fatty to see. Is so predictable about me. Credit. Guess we just. And you say you're making. He. Shoot. Switched up rose. They won't be tech, tough nexus nose toes. Chess. Movie.

Celebrate Response Leave Miller Brewing Company Walkie Constan Ninety six calories and three point two cars per twelve ounces joint here with Mari. Mush Tovey smokes. Tj the ones the twos fellows. We opened the show with some pretty sad really shocking news to me at least Hank Steinbrenner Cohen or the Yankees Chairman of the of the board. He passed away at the age of sixty three this morning. Reporting on a Today's Tuesday Pass Away Not Corona virus related. He had a long term illness that kind of makes a little more sense anything about because he stepped away from public viewing for what how really became the face of the organization over the last like four years. I WANNA say but Yeah Hank had. He's been battling some illness. Some people are saying it's liver related passes away the age of sixty three truly shocking terrible. Like my jaw legitimately dropped opened up. Saw The tweet from the New York Post devastating stuff. Obviously you click on it and and nowadays you're automatically assuming own help corona or whatever turns out not growing related at all. Yeah like you said definitely makes sense because there was a time I feel like in the late too late. Two thousands like that first decade where he was like you know very like much the face in the voice and like going to be the new George or whatever saying a lot of stuff and yeah then turns out he had this illness and miserable or thoughts and prayers the entire Steinbruck family Yeah really shed This is the worst part like is right. Now it's probably. They're not going to have like a really ceremony sharing yeah. I didn't even think about that. Fuck like funerals and all that at sucks virtual on stuff out of the how you doing. He supplement would have a huge turnout. Obviously yeah for sure. Yeah at you put it perfectly like kind of like the late. Two thousand two hundred eight. He really became like that face of the like you know he was. He was the next George like he would say like he kind of just didn't give a fuck what he said like albums more reserved and calculated. How and Hank would just come out there and be like you know He. He has quote about the Red Sox. it's alway going anywhere in America. And you won't see go anywhere in. America. You won't see Red Sox hats jackets. You'll see Yankee hats jackets. This is a Yankee country. I got just like he said those types of things he was kind of like a quote Karl a time This is a really sad. I I WANNA say the did you see John. Hayman's tweet now. That was weird. He he tweets you know how like when a trade happens like a big signing and like he gives credit to people he tweeted. I report on Hank. Steinbrenner passing Joel Sherman. That's a weird. That's like a toned our entire tweet the entire tweet. That's so fucking weird. That's odd like yeah. He does do which like all right. Fine you give credit for a big scoop traders or something. That's not something where like Joel Sherman was. Hey I need credit for this. No no Oh my God. Yeah and he does that a lot. It's almost like he doesn't even break news anymore. He kind of just feeds. Boris quotes. Like out to the world could Borcelino his guy and then he'll be like. Oh Yeah. Buster only reported this three hours ago. Just catching up on credit. That's his John Hayman's I kind of love. That's kind of a sick job. He does nothing. It's amazing he's easiest. Job in the world dislike report. The news that you heard from a friend hours later too. It's like Oh just catching up. You're just catching all the time. Just catching up your on this date. but yeah very sad news. Our thoughts are with the steinbrenners. Robert Malloy obviously Friend of the program and all that Can't imagine having to go through this you know during the quarantine all that just awful Another death unfortunately. We had to talk about real. Quick is Anthony Causey. He was a famous near New York City sports photographer for the Post. And it is crazy. You go through this guy's instagram. And what he is responsible for taking pictures like he has he has the Derrick. Jeeter the most one more economy pictures INC Yankee history. Where he's through this the depths of the Yankees of old Yankee Stadium and he hits a sign that says you know. Thank God. Make me Yankee. It's just like He. He was there for all of these moments and Yeah he he passed away with Corona virus. This was two nights ago And you the sports world everywhere just coming out with their tributes perspective on NBC. The other night I think syndergaard had one Pretty much every beaten beat writer out there. A lot of New York athletes were like touched by this guy. Very Sad He seemed like a legitimate good. Do this one actual picture of This couple in central park random couple who The Guy Proposer and causing just walking through central parking photograph. The whole thing came up afterwards. It was like Hey I took these professional shots. You guys like you want me to send it to you and just did that. That's the kind of guy. He was pretty cool last picture on instagram. To is so heartbreaking. Oh yeah his candidate in the hospital bed with the mask on say never thought I'd get something like thought it was indestructible by. Do make out here. I promise you this world's not gonNA hit Was March twenty second just devastating fucking diseases real viruses real taken seriously. You could feel like never going to beat it. Just stay inside. You gotta go outside. Wear a mask wear gloves. You can never be too careful. It's just like hits you everywhere. The numbers starting elite level off a little bit looks like in the city. But it's not you know we gotta keep going keep pushing because otherwise it's going to go back so we got to really hammer sir. Really sad news in the empty causing thing for sure Switching gears a little bit lighter note Obviously you're listening to this Tommy Canley is coming up Long-awaited interview We finally got him. It's about an hour long and it's fantastic of for against that Canley has been doing Streaming he talks about this on the shop How economy has been running a twitch stream to the audience of like five people up until a few days ago which is crazy because he doesn't have twitter instagram nothing. There's nothing last this information to so he's just been streaming and doing this thing. He was playing with weight and judge the other night. They're in. They're playing call duty and then he will show. I hopped on the show with him. We played a few games I guess it was a bad sign when I beat him With and he was pitching himself That was the bad omen for things to come later because he does play. He plays in the show. He played it on Monday. Night am when owned four and it was not great so People were not a little bit for sucking on the show. It's it's a tough game. This game is very hard glitch. Ian Shit so really. Wasn't that good right. Yes he's gotten there he thought he. I mean I stake so I guess. I'm not a good barometer for anything. But he looked like he he can recognize pitches. Hit he just. Can't he pitches with I don't know how many times because play video games but He uses the camera angle behind the pitcher when he pitches. I always like to hit like the the the catchers you and all that he pitches behind whatever I would do games. I always if I was pitching I. I would have that year that he does. I can't do all right. Yeah I just. I don't know that's just not. That's not how a lot of people don't very few people do that way so two. Can't we stick an shots? Okay I think MATT IN HIS GAME. I watched him play in the madame playoffs. He Played Wade. I mean it was because he talks about in this interview. How like one point? He rattled off forty guys on his mat and roster. And it's crazy it's like I don't even know that many people like on a normal roster like the packers I feel like a lot of people know and he just rattle off like fifty names on his fantasy drafted Madman League roster of but he's he he might actually get hired after like he's done playing baseball to be like an NFL coach because he reads defenses. He literally calls out what he's about to do. And he's just destroys people. Wade had weightlossforlife forty deaths. And like you probably have been more commonly says he lets up on people so Ganley's Gallison must watch. Bso We have the interview coming up for you now And it's about an hour long. Tommy he was able to join us. the full video up on Youtube. I think in like a day or two to go. Check that out After this so you to give us to use their But yeah. I mean you can't leave was great guy saw about the interview about the. I thought it was everything we could ask for. You know he's knee is advertised. We've basically talked about him on every single episode Till now or finally able to get him instead of asking people questions about McKinley. We're like hey we could just ask them ask them ask them to him ourselves He's amuses Dawson. Yeah I literally thought I was interviewing myself the entire. Yeah you guys scream brain or he just doesn't care and like he just is really good at baseball. Yeah the whole the whole drive yourself doesn't care and is really good at baseball. That's exactly how I describe. No He's he's in type of personality that baseball needs to hone in on and like get out there for the world. So we're doing our part here by getting on the show here Baseball really needs to make toffee county like a superstar because his personality can make the sport popular like instead of having announcers complain about. How Long Games are Jessica Mendoza? And all that we can have people. Just talk about Tommy Canley. And he will like that so So we'll get into the interview now for that. I WANNA talk about Hawthorne. Honestly while we're in a situation where I don't really want to go to the grocery too much or you know get supplies you wanna stay inside as much as possible. Hoffman. Hook us up and it is one of the best things I feel like. This ever happened to me. They sent me Deodorant deodorants all time. I actually but the moment they sent me. Children ran out. I've got shampoo for them. I got conditioner I said that really. We're conditioner condition. They've got face lotion. They've got handle. It's just when everything you need to.

He Canley Tommy. How's it going man? Good man doing great hanging out here. Great stuff what has quarantine life been like for you. How close is your wife?

The only time relieve is to go outside or something that's about it but yes I feel like she's ready to just probably choke me by now with all the video games at playing What kind of video games do you play playing a lot of madden lately and I have dabbled into the show a little bit? But I'm pretty. I'm pretty terrible. Show I did once and it was pretty cool. I couldn't throw strike. Oh you're you're easily my favorite guy us you over Chapman. Your is pretty show. I don't know if you know that read. I was eventually I got to a point. I was just started showing up every time I came fast offers strike miserable.

I play a lot of cod with brick. So we're on their murder and a lot of people. It's fun you played zone so we not the war zone though other one. I think it's blood money now was playing right for. Yeah for some reason. Last night I had a game. I'd like twenty four kills. Going fucking shit overnight. Call Duty Player on the team or is there someone that gives you run for your money?

I think that's sick dagger or regeneration you'll have to be an asshole. Big Ailing also buck line regeneration regeneration. That's that's the big. Yeah that's true. That's pretty sick. Most on the map. What do you got? What do you think would help you most on the mound like flying not do shit right? That's it it's gotta be super straight man strikes hundred percent. I will say though. If you flew out to the mound. That's like fuck like got the flames and all that. But if Tommy's flying out to the mound I mean what are we doing here? Also you could watch like any deep fly balls. Just take off and flight. Maybe that is the answer would never give a whole. That's like a jump up flycatcher. Walberg back your good switching gears a little bit of quarantine life. We're all all our eating sleeping. Schedules are so off. I don't know yours are. But what's your go-to late night? Desert at like one in the morning these days I eat late to be honest. Yeah so like I cut it off. Probably rounds. I'd say eight. Eight thirty is the latest. I'll eat something but it's ice cream. Hundred percent okay. I get those little pints of ice cream snatch gone. Sega Smash Flavor Usually birthday cake. That's my shit terrible. Another big chocolate dark chocolate guy. I don't like I don't fuck with dark chocolate but I'll take like chocolate chips and stuff for sure. Take people people think? I'm weird when I tell them. I don't like something but I love. I Love Candy so I'll I'll eat a snickers bar that's trumpet. Uh-huh it's different in their cabinets. Exactly who recently that? You'll just go through a whole bag of gummy worms. Like out in Penn. Oh I yeah it used to be terrible like I was bad back Raleigh Shits since twenty sixteen. I finally kicked that I used to eat literally like two pound bag of Sour Patch. Kids smashing it during the game. I was obsessed. I mean I went today to target like one of the time to get out of the House and go get food and stuff and I must have bought shit five six bags of Sour Patch. Kids gummy worms. I don't even know what else acts everything I stacked up for the next like three weeks so I never have to leave the house. You'RE GONNA finish that by the end of the weekend right. So who is the Cook in the House these days? Are you cooking yourself or his wife handling that off? She she does she. Does the dinner stop so like? I'll offense for myself for breakfast and Lunch. But she's got me she's got me for dinner. She's good what's best thing. Shit I don't even know the honest everything. The only thing I ever cook at night is usually like burgers and that's about it. Baranov burgers could on the grill is about it but she does like the steak chicken all that pretty solid You talked about us. Are you go? Yeah you got your job you were saying about like your old died of like going through like crazy things you had this crazy red bull coffee thing. Talk about that for a little bit. Yes for a good while man. I was just as I think. I had like a really good outings after I had like three rebels. One day. It probably just made me super lock. Had No idea so there. I was like I have to do this every gate next thing you know. I'm doing three every game for like months. Next thing that year goes live next year. I'm up to like four. This is probably doesn't sixteen by drinking like three or four day than seventeen came and upward six. Just getting insane. Those was year. I felt I was so locked in a it was outrageous that in eighteen. I kept doing the same thing I was like. Oh I gotta do the safe thing. It'll work now with downhill new. Bring over to the Yankees. Is that everyone like what the fuck you do that for. I mean I like what the fuck this guy do a little bit. I did you guys before. Like coming back so like they kind of give a heads up like hey. This guy is pretty fucking nuts. The like it's eventually everybody come to love it and then just that's how it is you have to do it. Works like what I always mentioned. I played college. I jerk off once before a game. I went Oso right for doubleheader jerk off against long superstition in baseball. It's ridiculous well. We tried to play off thing with your magritte-like member that you got a bad with those Nami was was wearing. Burchett chewed on by a bird before like game one of the Al this year when you guys beat the twins the twins get the astros is wearing a short with Burchett on it for like two straight weeks. I the same thing. Look if you guys won the world series. I was ready to send that to cooperstown. That's amazing I do shit for the eagles like if If they if they lose. I won't wear plugging single thing. The rest of the week till Sunday or if they win I won't I won't watch basically anything I wore the week before. Yeah you gotta so. Eagles be your number one fan. Yes hundred percent. You got some weird shit though. What what is your magic fan. You're what are you? What is that? So growing up The Eagles I start like when I was like four years old. I remember watching the Eagles jets game of course like sit in front of the TV with my POPs. Next thing is like coach green but like eagles because it was sick so I was like I. That's why I'm with next radio. I like Randall. Cunningham. Just spirals in their Orlando. It's because of a Penny Hardaway Just loved the guy couldn't couldn't get enough and who else like Carolina Basketball Eight. Hardly great this is a great year so that not tournament so resigned like them was eight point. Jamison not even not even Michael Jordan dismantling J. I respect that Irish infringes and abusive Michael Jordan. It's like no no not even that and then people hate Ri- sale minority football fantasy low that I got for my thoughts. I can't Oh. Yeah that's that's that's a different story but you can't sabres. Yeah big saver said you are so all over the All New York Dima like that's it like people give me shit all the time about your another planet with that but you have a pretty good reasons. I feel like I didn't expect those reasons I expect. There's there's a reason there's always a reason that's the something I got going on. Yeah okay enough. you You like to mess with a lot of people as everyone saw with the the behind the scenes videos which were so good hopefully can continue those as the season progresses and all that but everyone was kinda demanding to the Tommy. Canley one and moving. It was it did. It did not disappoint. Who would you say is your favorite person? Thought with a man Scotty Brit. I'd say Brenner Chad. I can't I don't know if I am point. One but Suka is totally different. Like Chad's really quiet doesn't like to like kind of be outspoken. Ever bric Brit will be like come at you with something back. It's it's pretty fun like going after those. You have a favorite prank or like something that you ever pulled on me. I don't think I've never really old any pranks they do. They do that shit to me all the time. That's the thing I'm the one that gets all that stuff like every every every gain cy. I usually go down like an inning or two before Britain and so every time I go in I'll get like a couple of seeds and I'll put it up on the door so like when they opened the door to console over. I tried to do that every game. Never been the victim of Gartner Prac- all he loves dude. It's me what what is so. One of them was What year was it was an eighteen in camp? Spring Camp He told literally the first day Russell showed up. He goes up to him and tells them. Hey that guy you gotta you gotTa do something by the time. He leaves here. What he ended up doing was so last day. Russell Stair steps He's always there. He's air super early everyday. So I came in coming my locker all my eagles jerseys got DOT C. It didn't know where they were. My helmet was like Kinda this year at the when the Super Bowl so the helmet dumping thing I get closer. I look at it. It looks like it signed by run someone S. I'm like what the fuck this guy decided. Eagles like this guy. Give me next year. I kind of look again. It's early sounds like all still hired chip could see next. I'm like Oh let's take the group that obviously the next thing you know there's a there's a Jersey of Russ just hanging in there and it's like hope He's like don't need these eagles jerseys anymore. Oba Hope. This one's good for you go hawks. They signed that news but basically he liked him somewhere and put that pull the program and everything but it was all because of garden elaborate plan rest guarded by hand through the whole thing to everyone came up goals so far every single player. We've talked to. Have you ever been the victim of garnered prank? Like no the Tommy every single time. So Oh yeah so his name I think like at least it's gotta be at least ten by now without a doubt. I bet you some. I don't even realize that he does. He's probably show mad. He's like how did he not realize what just happened? You just keep going. He likes to get everybody with the The salt in the drinks. It's the worst. Yeah Oh yeah sometimes you wanted to put it in there but like sprinkled all around the drink like like he did put it in is the worst I have. I have a feeling that might Karki has gotten you a few times. But the whole thing Faking that you're going in He He's got a quite a few times. I know you always does the everybody the first time you're there. He does it to a rookie every time the first first game there gets them up nate. Y'All doubt and sit show ass down. But he got he does get like if you Kinda Mesler He'll try to fuck back with you doing that. Then you get. It's like patch. Get your heart rate and next suit show. As that's incredible I listened to their On our to Ruko podcast with CC. Him buner like these huge bachelor fence which I just had no idea about. And they're like they were telling the story of how they would watch it on the IPAD with a glass of wine on the bus and they refused to get off until there's a commercial and that's because I never would expect hockey and boon to be those guys but I'm telling you right now there's probably at least ten guys that watch that show and dancing players players rat him out alumni out right now. I know it's great. Greenie is one montgomery. I remember in spring monk. Montgomery ingredient like a series finale. Like big like party like set it up like made like a cheese red meat scranton. My come what do we do these? Boy I know like you said like art watches it. Buni try to like I know points more. I just can't even pinpoint him right now. I like it see. Montgomery do a nice little cheese picture. Montgomery sharing a glass of red wine. Greenie his wife in Mani they'll have like little like big watch. The Watch the series this spray. I was like guys. What are we doing this whole time? I'm trying to picture you explaining to. Dj Lemay who what the Bachelor isn't him just like not competing with any of that is because like I wouldn't be surprised if he watches it with his wife. Sarah Yeah Fair Enough Dj. Who usually. Because I feel like so hyper and everything and Dj just so locked in like can't figure out anything but baseball like do you ever do. Try to mess with them sometimes So I yeah so. I've known DJ for Awhile so like He's probably one of the few guys I can. I'm one of the few guys get more album than most people so I think it's pretty funny. 'cause he'll even come out of his way to talk to me about like Shit and it's pretty funny because he doesn't do that most people but I can get him laughing and shit he loves it because I'm pretty out of control so but he loves to talk about like hockey. That's his thing he loves. I always mess with them with fantasy football and madden anything like gaming wise so like stuff like that. He's really interested in so you can get them going. All the time that but is for the most part will be quiet. He gives you like little smirks and stuff when he finds it funny. But it's just now is the Silence assassin that. Yeah I mean gotTa love what he brought to the table. Last year hopefully can do it again. This year So obviously the reason you're at home right now and no playing is this whole quarantine thing and we're all doing our part here and just recently. A few days ago they came out with this proposed plan of basically a bio dome in Arizona. And all these all these rules. What early thoughts on that? So I I WANNA play. That's the one thing I want to play. I don't care what what happens. I could care less days. I just want to play baseball again. I'm stuck here doing nothing. So I mean what in terms of Arizona? I'm not a big fan of Arizona so I wish it was somewhere else but I mean if that's the last case resort we gotta go to. I'm all for it but like I've always told everybody. Arizona's not pitchers friendly place especially those spring training sites. Those those places are wild. I mean I would mind if he played in the Dome but it could get interesting if we play it all these outside places. Okay so I it's not has something to do with Arizona like the people or anything. It's just like the air in all air quality. Off-line is not fat. Yeah there's no grass no trees. It's it's not one of my spots. Come UP HERE UPSTATE. New York and get away. It's great. It's what did he what was part of the proposal. Is the strike zone like electronic strike zone the fastest year? Like all that stuff like sit next like how would it be for you? You're always like talking everybody. You're going to have to be six feet. Apart for everyone in the stands that can be a doug. I thought about that like yellow. I'm literally like just probably be yell at people like sixty bar just yellen because there's nobody in the stands besides just us so it's going to be like what the this weird Allo. They won't even need the Mike. You guys you can just hear you in the background like screaming. Hey Brian Hey Brian you see that. There's a good chance you're going to be here in mid inning and shit like that. It's Oh man it's interesting the electronic strike zone. I don't know how that's GonNa work. Because that's what to me three or four years away from like they were just starting out in the Atlantic where they're just testing it out and now we're just going to throw that into the majors like that could be. I don't know I think that'd be. I left the whole six foot thing is going to be interesting either. GonNa do August. Would you now feel like pitchers might Kinda like that? There would be no more mound visits. 'cause you guys don't like getting bothered on Mount? Sometimes that affects you a so the I I think it could affect some guys like I know I. I'm not a big fan of mound visits but I mean it does give you a breather every once in a while especially if you throw in like fifteen twenty pitches. I'm out there. Dass like just like I need a break right now right. I think it could. It could affect some guys for sure and guys that basically feed off what the like. They need kind of some kind of feedback mid game. Maybe I know I know some guys like that. I might need that but it could. I think that could be a problem. If there are none you come off to me. Is someone who really loves like the feed off the energy a fan. You saw it right away in the twenty seven playoffs like those are some of my best like late at night. Go on Youtube you go watch the Tanaka Canley game like you bail and everybody out go fucking crazy and then so now. We wouldn't have that it'd be it'd be a huge strikeout the bases-loaded everybody out and just be like golf clubs like whatever. I feel that would mess with you. All I mean to be honest probably will a little bit just because I do feed off the fans even though that could be a problem sometimes but I get to jacked up. Sometimes I don't make pitches but the energy is like a big thing when I'm pitching I love it and Cook it weird. If there's nobody in the stands beside just your teammates y'all I mean it was just like planning college against me to be honest. Sharona like twenty fans anyways so it was like cares. Yeah I was trying to think how a walk on with working with like Shit. Can't go near each other now. Walk off we're good quality to watch us go nuts. When no one's doing anything there is a good chance I'll still be going nuts when there's nobody stance talking shift to the robot empire or something going to happen. Oh yeah what's the most foul balls who catches the most home runs you'll know competitve fan's stance exactly. It's going to be so strange. We're going to get rid of US going to get the ball that's going to be pinching solid. That's what we do is like one guy was always designated will get the foul. Morgan was the worst team in high school. Last whoever gets out with your the good rushton room man brutal so on like a plane. We always talk about like how. Dj So quiet. You always Kinda see him in these pictures on planes to sitting like his head turned away from everybody like looking at film. What's your like activity on the plane like? Are you literally jumping around from like Rotorua? Like fathering people I am. I am the loud on the plane. That's that's that's definitely for sure. I mean there's Times or hurt we take us that I'm trying to serve the. I'll try to serve for like ski. Like this is what it is like talking to myself right now. I do a Lotta dumps it on the plate so oh man I gotta keep it keep you live though. Yeah there's always guys I try not let sleep. It's our trainers. So if I see him sleep bloke over like play with their hair like flick their ears. Something they get this house. My next question is like who is like the worst flyer who is there. Somebody who's like always like there's a little. Bit of turbulence you freaked. Oh everyone's great. I'm the only one I yell. At some of the words though some of the worst is is one. I O every time that happens. I look and I go. I know I know he's like shut up. Eight eight hundred but I think brick. It's pretty freaked out with it and then I green actually next to me saw like I'll hit him on his leg lock regard. It's great by guys. You're going to be fine. There was There was a few few people at work this year. Who were flying flying private for the first time. Yeah one of the guys at work. He literally just sent them an article like the amount of plane crashes per year. It's like it's GonNa go find. It was big cat to like Trent. It was like why are you doing absolutely you sat there staring straight ahead like Oh my God this is over so I can kind of the same way with that which he freaks out man. I you should see their faces. Everybody's like Oh shit it's out of you know I have. You know you just so smart where he'd be like well typically speaking like or very likely down right now. That's the one thing that gets. Yeah it's crazy. I agree with you. One thing you'd like come on. What are the chances I actually like go down here? He's he's he's very intelligent. That's definitely one thing that's fantastic. We always like to ask Pitcher Catcher What is your coaching? Move in a brawl like you feel it coming. What are you a glove thriller? What's what's your move. There gotta be the spirit and then then granted Pam. Yeah you take on route or something. It's the goldbergs sphere and then granted. That's fantastic that's the farthest it's the Farnsworth basically or the Farnsworth. Yeah that's awesome. Yeah because you you were involved with that whole tigers that I was actually. I wasn't there so we'll know you were in like you were youth what you hit more or less started it. Actually I mean like time I was already I was already in the clubhouse. It sucks like everything. Everything accumulated by the time. I was already gone I didn't it was it was knee Warren. And somebody else were already up upstairs like and we couldn't you can't go back out on the field or else it's like some crazy fine. So Yeah Joe Joe in Warren and Joseph. You're not going there. He's like stay like you like I saw on TV. I don't I started sprinting. Just like no I was like Oh shit all right now would have been really funny if everything was dying down and all of a sudden come out like a bullet and restarts everything you got sick. Hey maybe who knows? Maybe this year next year we something else. Few Things Bruin here but Funny Draft Store View is where you were when you got drafted by the Yankees. You're on a Taco Bell drive-thru. Oh yeah that's that's very true so you just do not expect it to happen then or hostess hungry I mean I I was at my like old teams place so I was like.

I'm probably one of the few people in the world that actually eat filet of fish for McDonald's. I think they're fantastic. Wow my testing. Yeah Oh yeah. I should say craziest thing you said by Clark Hall Friday during lent meal and I was a kid. I'd love to hit a filet of fish for vice too long John Silver. That's the best I don't know if I all never had made you got to track down. He's actually talking belly long. John Silvers to get to. Yeah unbelievable you can't find value. They don't even exist anymore. Housing to say I have ever seen in New Jersey New York. All the time a we'll ask what I saw was in Scranton. Ta when I was there the last one I saw what a shame. I should have went. I didn't even go so mad. Never GonNa see it again. Never We talk about video games before lose. Obviously the very competitive Madden League Elliott Norman. At one point you're just playing for people. They beat the computer for them so we could just get into the playoffs. Oh no no no. I was playing for him. So in the as a commissioner you can go in and you can send them w or you can send him a loss of just they if they play. I could see I could see how many play so like some guys playing games econ sounds like you get the win. Whatever will get onto the next week that way. Everybody could make the playoffs and could be kind of fun so the first season I did that and we had five guys make it from the AFC. Because I didn't realize we had two guys in the AFC EAST. We had two or three guys in the AFC West so we had no AFC north team or no AFC south team though is basically like got your Shit Outta luck. Sorry and it ended up. Being voided was the one that didn't get it. Yeah of course and now he's GonNa be the one again. That doesn't make playoffs again this year. So I'm on the second season now. you got it where. I can see you being like. She wants to. What Heller in the finals unreal? I have the twitch of the game is on A. It's on my channel. Okay might have to go back and listen to that. I could see you like being not talking to your wife for a full day. It wasn't that bad. I take it that bad. I had it all set. You'll see how I lost. I basically looked it up. I had the win at. What's your go-to Mattis drowsier? You like somebody. Who are you gonNa you know punt on fourth down kneel at the end of the game are you just gonNa run the football to set up play action or you just balls to the wall Definitely the first part for sure. I mean it's four down in your in your own territory you punt the ball. Let's what are we doing here? This is like we're playing like arcade rules or something love. There's what there's only like one guy that does that frazier of course of course and then Like if most of the time basically killing all these guys anyways I just I want you to know I'll start running the ball on chewing clock in the third quarter. Just like keep the score down and let the game run. I'd try to like help them in stuff during the game like tips but a this season actually played more guys. So it was. It's been a bloodbath deed. So the the two games dj before when he beat me by two and then. I beat him the game. I beat him in the. Nfc Championship game was crazy. I got out to twenty nine two six lead and then I blew it. And he came back and took thirty to nine with like two something. I didn't convert. He got the ball. Bax and He decided to throw the ball twice and the the second time he threw it was third down. Take them off. Ran It. Back for a touchdown they went to the superbowl. That's how I played. Elrick is simple. Jesus Heller eller almost screwed it up and ship game against King ended up a scoring with like shit. I think like twenty seconds left king had them the whole game. Goddamn are you undefeated right now. The new season no. I lost the first week of the season. Computer allows pretty trump bar game. It's like whatever yeah. It was bad like this sucks then the next loss was basically me and older could flare game so I told him I'll just straight seven send it and of course team ends up way. I'm just like come on now. What was this a two losses? But basically I've the the third the rubber match between me and DJ. I beat them. Forty one to six basically. I figured out his how he plays. Now he's done it again on Ozzie. Played a beata. I've taken it softly. Last Guy Superbeet judgy yesterday. Thirty four to seven a beat a who was at before him away. I think waivers like forty one to seven actually forty eight fourteen. Somebody I beat floored like forty one to six. Oh my by those games. Don't I'd like stop. I just stopped. It was like first quarter. I'm up twenty eight. Nothing I'm like. I'm just GONNA slow down Heller on the other hand. He's the guy that will try to run it down the road so he talked about the other like a couple days ago. Eighty four to fifth or I was like I really. We don't hear I could do the same thing if I wanted. Roofless ruthless is completely ruthless. I couldn't believe it when he when I saw it. Now these are your drafting these teams. Right so what is your tier two? So actually this year. I made a lot of changes trades and stuff so I Right now I have a defense. I have on my defensive line. It's clear Max deal hunter. A hand is a superstar and Chris Jones and then at linebacker I have a Jalen. Smith drew tranquil. And so we did the dress. So I have a Levine. Chase the kid from lsu. Yeah Yeah. So who's your before like Mac blades at outside linebacker got it? What's your offense locally So we're ahead. I eventually figured out how to trade for once I got once Void TRADED NEED. Mccaffrey for like two first round picks. And something else I like number two loves bundle right. Voi-voice is does run the ball. So I was like what's the point he can happen here? I got them traded for Juju cooks have Isabela. Who's a superstar? Might tight end is a a changed chase? Klay Pools Titan wives good. I could buy spit it out but I think it's like Villanova elston Jenkins Travis Frederick. I'll talk to you. Remember your whole I just remember. I just I just like this. My my secondary growth sue. I mean I got a was it. A traded for Justin Simmons. My strong safety. I traded for Adrian Amos. Mike Corners are Byron Jones Jeff Okuda and Nickel of eight people and I won't remember half of them. You will all ribbons by the fifty three man roster if I could Brian Castle at some of these trains like ripping people. Oh Yeah well I was somehow trade. I basically figured out like the trae now is telling all the other guys and they were doing it. We're getting first round. Picks freedom to other teams like their star players but I kept going after Gilmore and Jalen Ramsey impossible can't get them. Can you cannot get them. I tried a million different things. That's pretty crazy. Yeah I I I love how I wish like. The mattingly was more like now. You're twitch dreamlike public. I'm sure people will be chiming in and watching that stuff by. Oh you people need sports these days. I'm watching like our boss is like opening packages and it's awesome random things and he got like Samurai swords and axes. You gotta go. That's sports to US right now. So we need. We might need to chime in on the Yankees Madame League. Happy Sports at set lines and just go from there because we got right now. I mean that's what we're trying to do is Brit was trying to set up a whole like twitch thing with the. We're actually talking to someone of the gaming companies and it ended up through because Britain basically didn't big like these guys I would say I mean he's right. There's probably four or five of us. That would probably ideally do what they wanted us to do. So I mean what I'm GonNa do it on my own will be A few more things will wrap up you. Had you thank you for your time? And all that but conspiracies. We always talk about conspiracies. Do you have a conspiracy theory that you'd like held onto that? You always think about big. He's alive man real one hundred percent. I guys real. Are you like a hunter? No IRA for some reason. Every time I would watch them I guess things real another whereas real last summer I was going away with some friends and one of my friends girlfriends and she was like bringing her friend and they were like. Hey like there's just one thing you should know about her like don't make fun of a little off and I was like okay. Like what do you mean? And she's like yeah like big foot hunter like see like sheep creek conventions like bigfoot hot with like what you doin. Bigfoot podcast like. How much weekly news is there to be breaking down every bigfoot merch so if you WANNA get into bigfoot game that's where you start yeah right yeah like I I firmly believe? There's there's an alien thing like the government's covered up under percent. They've already been here for. Who knows how long. I love that. I'm a hundred percent like Denver. All those like crazy documentaries on netflix about it. I loved it. Yeah the whole the whole Denver. Airport thing to me is just insane. Not only for conspiracy to go online right. The biggest thing I've been thinking about lately I remember I was watching some show and these people started fucking ripping off like seven different languages. How do you think we got mad languages? You think it was just people all started speaking English one guy. Hey got another person he said. Fuck you I'M GONNA learn Spanish and then it just came from just came from way out there man pillar just giving us weird languages Just throwing it all out there now. I think so. I didn't like you channeling. I'm wearing my own language to talk to you. What were you like in school where you just the problem? Trial like always in the principal's office. No not really. I was really quite yet well so if I didn't have any friends in the classroom super quiet just fall asleep. Didn't care didn't pay attention. Okay Yeah and then my friends are in the class. I was out of control. The teachers will have to tell me to shut up all the jets. That's pretty able quite then. 'cause I hated school I never wanted to be there. Aided yes I just wanted to leave. Go play sports outside. You'll do something. Sports related issue. This is just bad research. Did you go to college? Yeah where'd you go to college on the Lynn University? Okay so you're there. Are you just like schools? Why am I? Why am I doing that so I just WanNa pitch basically like so the first semester I I basically didn't do so well in our school policy is like you have to have two hours freshman or you can't play yeah ahead. Under that couldn't play. They were pretty furious that I was GONNA. I was GONNA end up being one of the I think I was going to be the mid week starter at the time but I mean whatever ended up working out. Start throwing like ninety five. That's spring everybody's saying Holy Shit. What happened the Guy who get two point? Oh but he's still a ninety five percent bad days just like fuck all right well I started lifting weights and stuff so I was like all right not saying the same thing with same. Exactly Didn't have a two point my first semester so I couldn't rush the second semester for Frat so didn't do a Frat so basically yeah. Did you say ninety five came out of nowhere just like one day? I was brought me throw live my. I live in the spring. Wam Ninety five. They're all like they like check the times. I didn't know what I came off the field. Probably you good name you know. Don't like ninety nine ninety five John It. Where were you before that in the fall? I was just like like ninety one. Sit Eighty nine. That doesn't satellite to people but ninety one ninety five is in Sync Leo because the fall when we like really like started like working out and stuff and like Nah I started once I was ruled eligible. I basically just long tossed shit out of the ball and just kept lifting and then by the time I got my I live. It was popped out all right. We're good was that in I point. You're just like okay. I can be in the big leagues like this is. This is real now. They might be able to get drafted now. More or less cool. Did he lived so again? If it happens it happens. I guess maybe I could. Yeah I would. I would the school just to play baseball in Florida. Act Cool sick on the workout. She you're coming from You came from the White Sox and you were the rockies before that first of all the white Sox I hate that. Stand the whites onto the worst team in the MLB. Should I honestly think they should be demoted to the minorities? It native White SOx stadium. That's fucking hate the whites but talk about like the except like I know coming over the Yankees. It seems like there's not really a big like oh like who's that guy the outside and all that kind of like accepted welcomed in. No problem is how different is that. What the White Sox rockies and how great was it with the Amine? It's definitely different like being accepted wise. I feel like the Yankees definitely. They do a great job with everybody like new. That comes in so then when I left I was the white sox like my first Sprang It was tough like really not know what I think I do. Like three people that from previous teams that played with So I just talked time and then eventually like people do like warm up to but it it takes a little bit. It's it's I would say. The veterans are usually different from team to team. So it depends on that but it felt like soon as I showed up in New York. They were like all right. Let's go. They're ready to It really they accepted it. They're like whatever pitching. Get Out. Stoneleigh fucking matter what you do. I will say like I had a great time with Chicago.

I One more thing I gotta bring up here. It's been debated Hatami Group chat pretty much all week and it's not WanNa Grin. If there was one age you can go back to relive one year and then you go back to being twenty five twenty six yard but you can just take a one year hiatus real quick and then go back to this exact point. What age would you go back to is it? Are you going to live the same life that you live Yeah I go back to where I am right now. Yeah you don't lose any time in your life senior college so that was easy answer. So let's say take out. College Casino is is the correct answer. Yeah you know Senior College. I build back here. Well you should Tommy. Actually I was GonNa say junior college from chain college. Don't pick out no college all. Yeah let's say let's say you don't have to you. You can choose to relive it exactly how you did it where you can change things up a little bit in that. World Tenth Grade. That's sophomore in high school. Why I fucking like my balls dropped. I didn't sound like Mickey Mouse Anymore. And I when I when I was like really really drinking and it was like the rush of drinking and you're not supposed to unbelievable. I don't condone it. But it was unbelievable. I have two choices I was GONNA say just first year out of college like working are stolen stuff about your childhood not like horribly answering this fucking you're going to be. You did not make that clear. You told every answer we're giving like no you can't choose out talking childhood question. I'm going. I'll say second grade. That was my pretty much like peak like I was Charlie Brown in the school play. Charlie Brown Valentine's Day I twenty five lines be also more than like six Like the ladies man at the class in third grade. Actually here's a fun. Little Story There was a my teacher said. I never smiled but still there's one picture me smiling. She liked hung up at the front of the class and saw like literally my classroom. Just one picture me smile. Nobody else had their picture up there and one day Thursday. We were changing seats and Miss Sucrose. My teacher she was like I get my seat set and she was like it was like you have to sit across from a girl or a boy and girl in the class wants to sit next to palm is. Every single. Girl's hands went up except the one. I was literally fucking Leonardo di Caprio back. Who is the one girl who didn't raise your hand? Oddly enough a girl that I ended up quote unquote dating for ten minutes in sixth grade. so she says she was trying to like play hard to get. Yeah Yeah my answer was when I was twelve which is I guess fifth grade. I really just WanNa play literally again literally was so much fun like getting grade. I was pretty good back then. Like literally was like when you were like de sit and like everyone was competitive second. It's too young when you're in second grade but fifth grade talk competitive like I will look forward all week to whenever my weekday literally Amos and then Saturday. We play that she was awesome and in the summer you look at it like Halo three years of war. I would be cooking with you. Don't even know what was going on the outside world besides like when you're like the Yankees replying or whatever but like there was enough to worry about money. No insurance health right now like I. I woke up your day with severe chest pain in my left side. I was like wow. I'm just GonNa Die Right now. This is it and it just went away but back then you. You feel immortal when you're like twelve years old playing little league you're just kind of starting to like figure out what girls are like. Oh like they're pretty attractive. Like cool you like chasing them around. Even though it's not working but like it's just like fun I think. Twelve is the perfect time to go back. I I wish I could relive well. I think you're right because you're right like a one text message from a girl. Holy Shit I'm talking to a girl while my your razor some shit or like when you leave your aim message up like hey baby. Emma texts me. Yeah no they're also Do you guys have bbn? Now I'd be my first phone was in Envi- to the verizon envy to envy was fire Ayob Bmw Ping Do fucking I have ABM? I also my first one was did. Lg View was screen phone. That shit was also was like the first iphone kind of Ida t mobile sidekick which they hadn't Zoe Wanna one so I felt. I never had a razor. Never had a razor guys remember the voyager I wanted to voyager so bad I never got it but it was like before then remember. That was a fun time when everyone had their own different phones. And that's the envy kidnapped. The sidekicks twelve years old. Though that was when we were like twenty five ten for me which would be twelve which yeah yeah it was also twelve is on the cost. I met was five. I was yeah Novas twelve is also on the customer like Bar Mitzvahs and Shit. I remember I went to one who is spoken sick. Yeah and so. There's like a decent amount of like Jewish kids around your so like all my friends were Jewish. I had a bar Mitzvah that But when I had one yeah why have you Passover? Belated should we read that text exchange? Yeah Real Quick Mart. He's got to go to so we gotta we gotta go quick but now it's funny easier and reluctant so so you know it's the three of us. Tj Avery. He's an attorney helped us out with production posting editing social stuff like that last whenever Passover was. I don't know Thursday or something he. He texted in our short pappy. Passover Tommy out of out of nowhere out of left field like let me remind. Everyone a Tommy's last name is skip belly. I look you get sold all the time. I look Jewish. Okay like that makes sense but usually if like you know my last name like you can figure out Italian usually Italians or Catholics or whatever. Uh So he's happy. Passover Tommy hubs. Tommy is not Jewish. I just said what and then avery sends the Stephen A. Yet for it's like we've been hoodwinked. Bamboozles led astray hubs is says. My last name is human. I said my last Amos the belly he's like I'm Jewish. I went this whole time thinking. Tommy was Jewish shaking my head again. I guess I look Jewish. But my my name's in a giveaway and then Hayward said young Tommy Looks Very Jewish and I was like. Are you going to wish up over instead? I am Jewish Passover. Where cows over hub? I'm sorry religious. Don't celebrate it and then I was like at that point. I'm like basically this is like Michael Scott. Calling David laws for his birthday like this. Is Avery wanting happy? Passover ratio where like Abbie Passover Avery and that's pretty much how it And he was like from my recollection. I could have sworn he was Jewish so that was just a bazaar little little ten minutes of also five minutes after we all followed and got followed by the Bantu friends. Well Grachev moment. There were those. There's no like I just don't know why he had say like no result in you know what not to say happy and like I would never say that unless I was one thousand percent sure like yeah I do not have any clue.

Cool now what did i get. Now what are we to play with. And and elsa castle from frozen fisher price. I believe it is the little people series as a elsa castle that make some noise in does a few other things that was certainly a big hit in the house as well as a piano. You know one of those you run around and it makes noise that one's gonna you know certainly be on a time limit for the sanity of myself but was a lot of fun to see her. Enjoy the holidays so hopefully you guys out. There had similar experiences had positive experiences over the past week here. But we're going to only have one episode for myself this week once again normally. Come into you guys. Monday thursday thursday in the new year's holiday. This'll be the only show for myself this week. And then next week once twenty. Twenty one commences. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming but here for today's episode. I wanted to have a bit of fun. Kenneth stay on the holiday theme. And because of this i put together a wish list or a christmas list for all the teams out there and basically what they should've asked santa for this past week to deliver them in accordance to have a particularly salad. Twenty twenty one. So we'll go around the league here briefly some of these players some of them. Are you know things. I made up of summer. You know lay movie references. But we're gonna have a good time here and you guys will certainly understand as we get rolling but starting out in the american league east the toronto blue jays. I put down a corner infielder for them. Of course they need somebody to pair with vlad. Guerrero junior They try to matt. Third base doesn't look like it's gonna work long term self if santa could drop them a third baseman they would certainly like that next. We have the baltimore orioles to ask santa for time machine because they pretty much have to fast forward the next couple of years until they're getting anywhere close to relevance because yeah they're in the middle of a rebuild and hopefully not like the phillies and struggled through and more so the white sox padres in the likes who have done it successfully. But if you're an orioles fan you're to want to a time travel device to just hop into twenty twenty two when your club may have a shot at contending the tampa bay race. I asked for offensive depth. I mean i watched the world series in his. Anybody gonna help. Randy arose arena. I mean if there's any offensive ability beyond that one they may win that series so somebody to help out a rose arena is on the wishlist for the boston red sox i have two thousand eighteen championship gear because unfortunately things are now looking up in boston anytime soon. In my opinion. So if you're fan or if you're on the team you're gonna wanna take a trip down memory lane and Relive that twenty eighteen season by adding new gear to the collection for the house. The new york yankees. It's dj lemay. Hugh you know you're gonna wanna bring him back. He's one of the biggest free agents. He was good for them. So i'd no fun and games there for the al with the yankees but Bring them back. Dj lemay santa claus and all yankees fans will be happy out there next for you indians. Fans we got to starters to relievers in to prospects for francisco lynn door. That's right of course. All the experts say he is going to be moved this off season so why not ask for the world. Give me a couple of starters couple of relievers couple of prospects and yeah. We're good to go so of course. Santa may not always deliver. Exactly what you're asking for. You know you don't always get what you want but you get what you need according to the rolling stones so be wary of that. You indians fans next step. We got the royal cy put together a two thousand and fifteen montage of the best of the best from that season. That was the last season they won the series of course and now it's going to be a long summer once again in kansas city. And i don't see them turning around really anytime sooner than later here. We have the detroit tigers. I asked for an entire new lineup. I'm sorry that offense up. They're not a ton of professional hitters. I mean the pitching is coming. They've drafted they. Did bats early in the draft spencer torkelsson so the cavalry is on the way. But it's gonna take some time and They're going to need professional hitters professional at bats. Certainly between now. And that for the minnesota twins. I have pixie health dust. I mean. these guys can't stay healthy up there in minnesota health for josh donaldson byron buxton. Those guys are always down. Who knows with some free agents in the markets you know. They really couldn't afford to lose those guys. If cruz or zoro both end up walking. So they're going to need some fairy tale pixie health dust to sprinkle into everybody's water this year to make sure everybody stays healthy The chicago white sox. They just need a good vibes machine. I mean they got a new manager traded for lance lynn. Got good ball club. Coming back should take the nep step but certainly Make it all come together right. I mean a lot of teams out there that we've seen have the pieces but aren't to put it all together so you know there in chicago tony. Larussa of course out of retirement. We talked about that a few episodes back. If you guys want to listen to it just kind of scroll there to the pre logged episodes but if we can get that good vibes machine going keep the good times roll in chicago. I don't see why this team up there couldn't win. One hundred games and contend to potentially be the best team in the american league this year so out to the al west for the angels. I got urgency pills. I want to do my best mugabe to from zoo lander right. I feel like i'm taking crazy pills. Well i feel like everybody in. The angels organization needs to take some urgency pills because mike drought still in his prime getting older year by year. Here right that's you know not news to anybody. But they haven't won a playoff game during his time there in anaheim and of course he has years in millions left on that contract. But hey can i get it from you guys because the best player potentially arguably in the history of baseball is how many years into his career now and hasn't You know tasted the sweet success of the playoffs and i myself as a biased east coast fan. Who doesn't get to see a ton of angels games during the regular season. I want to see this guy so if we could please make the playoffs and allow him prime time to get the attention he deserves. Let's get some urgency pills up here in anaheim so for the oakland a.'s. It's health for matt chapman. I mean he. He lost a good portion of his twenty twenty season. So you know really for them and you know maybe some economic restructuring out there in oakland but sadly healthy. It's going to be the biggest thing for them for the houston astros so i have a copy of the last dance. Dvd set because this year's pretty much going to be the last ride for them. I mean you know. After this year losing springer it seems to be next year. It's into correja out too but the band is slowly. Dispersing down there from houston so one last dance. Dvd set could be the theme of their year. Here in twenty twenty one for the seattle mariners. Excitement alarms. I mean. Fans needed to get alarms. You guys you know. You need to be aware kyle lewis other some good things happening up there in the northwest. So you east coast fans who aren't paying a ton of attention to the mariners. Good things are happening last. We have the texas rangers. They need joey gallo to essentially be the. Mvp this year. So i have. Mvp juice for joey. Gallo come into texas because certainly them rebuilding. That's going to be the only way that crews forward here so moving over to the national league debris science them getting the reality stone for marvel's endgame from fan house. You know that way they can manipulate the reality of the three two one series lead. They blew to the dodgers last year and the nfl cs can manipulate that into whatever they'd like in order to ultimately get another shot at the dodgers. Here coming up in twenty twenty one for the marlins we got a big bat side. They need somebody offensively in that lineup. That rotation solid but they need an offensive weapon to help kinda take that next. Step for the mets here. We have all of the free agents. I mean unloaded. Money unloaded enthusiasm. They have everybody. Can they get bored. And they get springer. Who else are they in the market. For so i think all of the free agents is pretty much what their fans are writing down for their goals to santa here. So let's see the philadelphia phillies. I have surprised seasons from people. They don't see coming because the writing on the wall. Yes even if they bring. Jt rio mutsu back. I see him as more of a number three when it comes to offensive prowess. And i don't know if they have a number two right now so some surprise offensive juggernaut seasons from some guys. You didn't see coming is basically what the phillies are asking for. The nationals are looking for some arm health right. they're looking for you. Know some massage. Oil in the form of health for the right handed arms of trouser and shirt strasbourg and shares. Irv to give them a chance here. In twenty twenty one to ultimately make a push back to the world series now the national essential they need. let's see memory array spill so or better yet that flasher from men in black right and they gotta get those two christian yelich as soon as possible because he needs to wash twenty twenty from his memory and jump back into and remember the fact that. Hey i'm an mvp candidate. i'm christian. Yelich i pretty much dominate and crush. Baseball's so if they could just get that flasher for men in black senate to one year give yell at a nice little picture. He'll be good to go to bounce back the cardinals there. The you know the return of the jedi right. The return of the free agents. They got one adam wainwright and yati molina to eventually come back and give it one more shot in saint louis. So they're asking for the return of the jedi. Dvd set to get those two guys back. Hopefully for twenty twenty one the cubbies. What are they looking for. They want some clarity water. They need to know what's going on in the future. I mean they got some decisions coming on some pretty big free agents. Of course they already made the one decision on schwarzer But a few more of those coming down the pike here so they need some clarity water for all the fans to kind of see. What the heck this team is ultimately looking to do moving forward next week got the pittsburgh. Pirates and they need themselves maturation oils right like they. They got a bunch of kids. They just made another trade for a few additional prospects. We're gonna talk about here in the next segment of first baseman josh bell. Moving on here. So they're banking on these kids and they need some maturation oils to continue to progress in. Continue to develop and give the pirates next window a pretty big shot here so wrapping up the central we got the cincinnati reds and man they need to add wino- swore s to pretty much bounced back right so they need the return of all of their lost souls offense if they had a couple of guys start out hot dip down like castellanos swore struggled the whole year so it's certainly a tall task for cincinnati aired twenty twenty one but Wrap it up things. Now go into the nfl west. We got the diamond backs. They're looking for market increases. They need better returns on their investments. I mean madison bumgarner signing him last off season to a five year deal he he struggled so basically. They're looking for better return. They're praying for a solid market. Roi this year to finally get back to where they think they should be. The dodgers looking at twenty twenty reruns. I mean a run it back. Why not right so. Dvd television reruns. That's cool with la. They're looking to just run things back one more time. Hey let's go. let's do it again. The san francisco giants let see the return of buster posey. I mean you know the the giants they had a nice year and twenty twenty almost made the playoffs there as the the last team with the expanded playoffs. Joey bark coming up here as well. But getting buster posey back certainly going to be a huge deal. If you're a giants fan the san diego padres. They wanna a copy of quantum leap because ultimately that's what they're looking to take this next year. They did that this past off season having the second best record in the national league but if they can take one more quantum leap they're going to be at the top of the national league and arguably challenging the dodgers. First premacy there. So the last team on it is the colorado rockies and they're just looking for closure i mean they wanna know what's going on with nolan era. Nado his he stay in here. Is he staying here. Forever is the opting out are we traded him. What's going on. So rockies fans are just looking for closure this christmas season to try to figure out ultimately what the future holds here but that was the wishlist for all the teams in major league baseball. I thought that'd be a fun activity with the holidays coming up here whether it was an actual play our or some health pixie dust you know whatever it may be i love going through that segment with you guys but that'll do it here for the first segment we'll do now is we will step aside for a word from one of our sponsors and one of our sisters shows but when we come back here we'll get into news notes rumors all the transactions that taken place a couple of trades and signees over the past couple of days here so we'll discuss those and get into it but i'm your host kevin mahalick.

So please rate and review. The podcast gives five stars. Share with your friends that continues to help us grow and spread the word for s. Mc as we push forward to a better twenty twenty one for all here but diving in this segment. We're gonna talk about news notes rumors everything going on here across major league baseball as we are getting close to transitioning the calendar year into twenty twenty one but an interesting signing was made by the dodgers and honestly this is the sign of a well run franchise right when you look at certain things like this where they signed pitcher tommy canley to a two year four point two million dollar guaranteed deal and for those of you out there. Listening to that you may think is in canley hurts he. He's gonna miss this entire season. Well that's exactly what's taking place here. Is that the dodgers. No he will spend twenty twenty one recovering from tommy john surgery he only faced six hitters in two thousand and twenty one before his arm gave but if they get the twenty nineteen version of tommy canley they get themselves very good relief pitcher back right because i mean this guy has had an interesting story. Canley he was a rural five. Pick who you know struggled at the big league level. Then he turned into a breakout arm and twenty. Seventeen with the white sox. He ended up with the yankees where he was known as dominant reliever will all of a sudden and twenty eighteen. He couldn't throw strikes again. Had trouble with his velocity. Weli figure things out in two thousand nineteen he was a very good reliever again for the yankees and then like we said in two thousand and twenty only face six hitters before ultimately needing tommy john surgery so this is a good bet. This is a good use of resources. This is a good use of assets. I if you're the dodgers because looking at tommy tommy canley and twenty nineteen. He had a forty nine percent swing and miss rate on his changeup generated over sixty seven strikeouts with that a lot of his percentages. You know fifty second percentile hard. Hit fifty six exit velocity so ex w oba way up there. Era batting average velocity whiff rate like the guy has fantastic. Numbers comes to a lot of these secondary sabermetrics. But is he going to be able to come back from tommy john. I mean. that's certainly a risky bet. But i think it's a good use of four million dollars if you're the dodgers to take a chance on this guy bouncing back for you here in twenty twenty two so we'll wait and see but two years essentially saying. Hey come rehab with us. We think you bounce back. We think you'll be just fine. Another move that was made the pirates traded josh bell to the washington nationals. The national is looking for an upgrade at the first base position. Last year that was a position had really struggled for that and honestly looking at their roster it looks like Five of the guys who played first base at what point are now free agents or have decided on retirement. Such as howie kendrick. So you know they got one soto in that lineup. They got Trai turner in that lineup but outside of those guys last year there really wasn't a ton of depth offensively for washington so them adding josh bell. certainly makes a ton of sense now. Bell of course had a fantastic twenty nineteen. He had thirty seven home runs. I was in the home run. Derby here fantastic first half to essentially you know bouncing into the all star game so he followed that up and twenty twenty with a below average season to twenty six with a three zero five on base percentage which is below average here. So you know. What is josh bell. He's probably somewhere in between the two now. I don't think he's a forty home. Run guy or or close to it. What you got and twenty nineteen. But i don't think he's a two twenty six hitter. Either you know i. I don't think he's that low so you're looking at a guy probably to fifty to sixty s giving twenty to thirty home runs eighty. Rbi's and diff- offensively they get that in out of the first base position. That's going gonna be a huge upgrade to what they got in twenty nineteen. I mean even if he is average like the fifteenth best first baseman. That's a big step up from where the nationals were last year so the nationals of course with strasbourg and sherzer getting up there. Shire's deal coming to an end. Each one of them getting older there in win now modes and they're not looking for that next window and a couple of years. They're looking to win now. And that's certainly aligns with adding josh bell for him to come in and improve that offense here now. it's also been stated. Does this does this trade affect Zimmerman when it comes to the first base spot ryan zimmerman look into comeback for the nationals. The ownership came out and said this does not completely close the door on. What's going on with zimmerman. He could still be back but you know he's not going to be the everyday first baseman if that's the case so we certainly see that josh bell will be taking over that role for them moving forward but who did the pirates get back in return. They received pitcher will crow. Who is a a major league level pitcher. He turned twenty seven this past year but You know he's only pitched all of eight hundred in the major leagues and you know he's untested. Nobody knows what you're gonna get the league level arm for the pittsburgh pirates. They're not going to turn that down as they're essentially looking to get as many lottery tickets as they can totally see who is going to stick around but they also got minor league pitcher. Eddie yien y. a. n. is his last name and he is. He's the one who's essentially the prize of the deal. If you're pittsburgh. I mean he's a well regarded prospect pitching prospect. He's now number seven overall in the pirates. Top thirty when it comes to major league baseball his eta is. Let's see here twenty twenty three so we'll just have to wait and see is only one thousand nine years old so it looks like he's a few years away but yien is the price here for pittsburgh for bell so who knows i like it for washington and we'll have to wait and see from pittsburgh side but you know you're certainly not winning anything with the bell as your first baseman in this current window. So you might as well take a shot at a few more lottery tickets moving forward here but let's see. The rangers signed pitcher. Cohe are yara for two years. Six point two million dollar deal now. This is an interesting deal because certainly in twenty twenty one. The rangers are not looking to be contenders and they have some questions on. You know what they're looking to do moving forward ultimately you know who is going to be here long term. But they've made some nice moves you know below the surface they traded lance lynn. Got some prospects back for him. They named chris young general manager. They signed outfielder david doll. They traded for first baseman. Nate low they also traded reliever rafael montero to seattle. So they've made a ton of moves this offseason. But the edition of ari hara. Who is a twenty eight year old pitcher. He spent the last six seasons with the ito. Nippon ham fighters he threw at least one hundred and twenty innings in each of those six seasons. And that's pretty much. What what the rangers are looking for. You know lynn. He was in innings eater in that rotation and without him. Things are a bit thin. Kyle gibson still down there. But he struggled last year with a five plus era. Let's see here are ara velocity. Reportedly is right at about ninety two He works with about seven different pitches according to the scouting report. So it'll be interesting to see. He's not going to overwhelm anybody with his velocity. But the ability to manipulate different pitches. And i believe it was recently pitching in john. Twitter spoke about how you darvish through. Eleven different pitches this past offseason or this past season when it came to the entire season. So the use of seven pitches for ara not out of the realm of possibilities when it comes to next year but that's it for the actual transactions so. Let's talk now some rumors here. Let's see what's going on across the holiday season with baseball One of the reasons that came out that was interesting was that the dodgers are in the Trevor bauer in dj lemay hugh sweepstakes. I mean trevor. Bauer has talked about that. He is not opposed to a short term deal compared to a long term deal. He's looking at best fits. Ultimately you know big time picture type stuff so again short term deal out in la with the dodgers would certainly align with bowers needs. It's just a matter of what he fit out in that locker room. Would people welcome him kind of what the deal is ultimately but i do think bauer to. The dodgers would be fascinating. I don't see it happening. But i do think the dodgers are playing a bit of cat and mouse. Potentially with the likes of the mets to drive up the price of bauer to continue to you know years terms and play that game to get him on the east coast and out of the national league west as well but Dj lemay hugh potentially going to the dodgers. That would be fascinating of course because these guys are going to get about this same average annual value in my opinion bauer may be a bit above the mayhew since arms tend to get a bit more than bats but give or take twenty million. Potentially on both these guys per year moving forward. So what would the dodgers do with lemay. Hugh well lemay. Who could play third base justin turner or they could put him at second base and move gavin lux into a bit of a utility role. So lemay who you know. He likes the professional environment the winning environment. He liked this time in new york. Well he would certainly get that again out in. La it's a great run organization so They're gonna get positive experiences there. If that's the way he wants to go next step we have. The red sox throwing quote strong interest in enrica hernandez a free agent utility man. Boston has three guys already penciled in to see who's going to win the second base job hernandez could you know. Come right in there and win that position. He's been linked to the twins as well would be their primary second baseman so he could play a bit of outfield hernandez career slash line of to forty over seven seasons six of which came with the dodgers kiki hernandez So the boston red sox looking to potentially add world series champion kiki hernandez And make a move here. So he played for alex cora. Who is the manager of the puerto rico team for the two thousand and seventeen world baseball classic so he's played for alexkor before has that connection and if he enjoyed his time plan for cora i certainly see that as a benefit to potentially bring him back and see what the move is so Let's see here kim. Oh here's a good one. Hei song kim who we talked about the free agent shortstop from korea is fielding multiple five year offers according to espn k. B o insider daniel kim. So hey song. Kim has multiple five plus years. That would be certainly at the top end of the international market for an offensive guy. But kim could potentially be it. We did a segment on him. A few episodes back again. If you guys are new check those out. We dove into some projections From zips ultimately which way they think he could play out here over the course of his major league career and they think he's going to be an above average shortstop so his career batting average three. Oh six thirty home runs. Twenty three stolen bases in one hundred nine. Rb is our his averages per year so we shall see a man. I don't know where he's going to end up. A lot of people are talking about the west coast the san francisco giants but an outside chance. He ends up down there with the rangers as well. Could it be the blue jays the reds the car. No sir a lot of people are talking about some mystery teams but we have until january first until the post st clears to find out ultimately which way kim's go next up we have darvish. He's recently emerged as a potential trade candidate. He's coming off obviously a second place. Finish for the cy young award. And i don't know the padres seemed to be identified as a potential spot. Aj preller knows darvish well from their time together with the rangers says san diego has high end prospects that the cubs could be looking for in return for darvish. So man i it would be interesting to see. Obviously san diego lost clever jer to an injury. This year. Denilson lament chris. Paddock zach davies. Several la dealt with injuries during their career so lance lynn. Being off the board the padres may turn their attention to yu darvish and that would certainly be a surprise when it comes to the off season but last thing here the phillies have extended an offer to jt. Real mutel according to mlb network insider. John hayman he also states that. Jt has received offers from other unknown baseball teams as well so the phillies are not the only team to have an offering theriault mutel but it is nice to see that they at least put an offer end and dr trying to make this work after giving up sixto sanchez to bring real mutoko to town. But that'll do it here for the second segment you know. Not a ton of news and notes going on across major league baseball. Few signings one trade to discuss their so. I certainly appreciate you guys tuning in. But we'll step aside here one more time for word from one our sponsors and a word from our sister show but when we come back we'll give you guys an update on how the hall of fame ballots are going and we're going to have a bit of fun talking.

I certainly look forward to you. Guys checking us out there jumping into segment number three here. What are we talking about. Well i'm staying with the holiday vibes here. I'm staying with christmas theme and honestly i'm going to go a little bit of an ugly sweater vibe here in segment number three because i did some research checking out the wacky worst uniforms of all time and there are quite a few out there. That are certainly interesting to discuss. And for those of you listening on the phone. Now you're certainly going to want to bring out that Internet browser so you can type in some of these two google and check them out. Because i i'm going to start independently ball. They'd kind of work my way up to the league level and then of course major league baseball but we all know indie ball and minor league ball can get a little bit wacky when it comes to the uniforms here but the worst of the worst this would has to go and starting now with indie ball of course but the florence freedom they wrapped a dad bod jersey. In honor of father's day handful of years back where literally the jersey. They did have the gray pants so standard baseball pants. Which is a win when it comes to some of these jerseys then i'm going to be talking about us. I'm going to try to describe them to you guys so you can see them. And if you wanna google like. I said police do but The dad bod'ed jersey is essentially a topless male with a bigger belly and a hairy chest. Those beach t shirts where people wear over the bathing suits where it shows you know the chisel chest or the or the nice female physique underneath well. These are the other side right. These are essentially. Dad bods worst of the worst year when it comes to the jersey here so the florence freedom through this out in honor of father's day. I believe it was twenty. Nineteen this one took place so not even long ago but the florence freedom. Wow you guys you guys take the cake when it comes to ugly ugly baseball sweaters. We'll call them here so talking about the minor league system here now. These are a little bit all over the place but certainly fascinating one of the worst ones. I've seen and this one in regards to the pants more so than the jersey. But the eugene emeralds minor league team in the northwest league south for the minor league system. They put together basically a flannel shirt or a on jersey with a rudolph on the top of it so or reindeer for lack of a better term here when it comes to the christmas themes and the pants themselves though. We're gene pants on baseball pants right so they were actually baseball. Pant material but they looked like jeans and had waves and curves in fits and buttons all on the patriots. So it looked like these guys weren't wearing a flannel shirt and jeans to play in this baseball game so again check out. Let's see here. Just so i get it right. The eugene emeralds. We're going to wear these jerseys. I believe in twenty fifteen. So check that out on google. If you're looking to catch a glimpse of that because man. These pants may be the worst. I think i've seen in the history of baseball and there have been so bad ones. I mean i wore red pants with a black stripe down the side of for my legion baseball team back in high school. And i think these pants somehow are worse than knows. Even those as well had the fake buttons at the top or the fake belt. You know around it but you had the the string inside and then the fake belts stitched into the outside. Didn't even have the loops for bell to yourself. I think this baseball uniform does keep the loop so it looks like you're wearing a belt in your genes for eugene out there but oh my goodness what a fascinating jersey for them continuing down now the fresh prince jersey. that was run out by the state. College spikes i don't know state college is going to be around with this. Minor league reorganize everything going on. But they ran out eight fresh prince of bel air theme jersey for the spikes in man. It's just it is allowed and in your face and out there so that's certainly one you're going to want to take a look at but we have the johnson city cardinals who threw out a jurassic world jersey. They were the jurassic city cardinals for a day and their top. Their jersey top essentially looks very similar to the famous drastic park shirt. Where the Dinosaur is coming through breaking through and making his presence known well in this jersey. that's exactly what he's doing. It's a gray and white background. And then a big t. Rex come in through with jurassic city cardinals on the front of it. So this one certainly looks like comic book style cartoon style so at least it's like hey minor leagues trying to make a move and not where literally a flannel in jeans. And you're trying to disguise the fact that you're in a baseball jersey and not going to the bar here on friday night but we have the richmond flying squirrels who a jaws theme jersey. That's right jaws the shark. He is flying up on the top of the jersey from the belt area but it says squirrels with a bite. Mark out of it instead of jaws so the richmond. Squirrels went with the jaws theme. I'm not exactly sure why they did that. I guess of course. The jaws theme night at the minor league park. Why would you need any other reason to avid jaws theme jersey. But who do we have here. We have the fresno grizzlies who had a growl for nia jersey where they fresno grizzlies had a state flag representing california kind of manifesting itself with grizzly bear on it. But he is not so pleased. So that's why it is growl a -fornia he he's angry. He's got a negative look on them coming at you here. Actually don't hate this as kind of a tv or excuse me a t shirt logo or theme but certainly on a baseball jersey. Not exactly what you're looking for here. But if i could get one of these in a t i wouldn't hate that moving forward a couple more here is we continue down having some fun. The arkansas travelers turned into the. Us eagle jersey. They got a picture of an eagles face front center right on the chest you know the two is would be on the pecs out of thing and the beat coming right down the middle stars on one side stripes on the other so the american eagle jersey. Certainly one for the arkansas travelers. we also had. Who is this. When i don't know who it was but they had the landau caribbean jersey. So landau from star wars. I believe it was here. You guys gonna hate me if i just screwed that one up but landale got himself on a nationals jersey. That is just fascinating as well. This this from two thousand fifteen as well. So two thousand and fifteen certainly decided to have some fun here when it comes to the jerseys and ultimately a man that's just that is good stuff but that does it for the minor leagues next step. We have a jersey infamous jersey. That i didn't know a lot about until i was doing some research but the mercury mets jersey. There's an article out there. Was it the best or worst jersey ever. I mean you had cap sleeves. Mercury mets going down the chest of course a mercury logo planet graphic. I was silver and black made by russell earl hershiser you know has some pictures in it and you know people didn't know if they were being serious but it was part of the turn ahead. The clock not throwback but throw forward. They did this once in the nineties. It was the mets as well. As it looks like this seattle mariners. You know there's pictures on here. That i was able to find of alex. Rodriguez and ken griffey junior wearing jerseys with just a huge mariners logo on the chest The names were underneath the numbers on the background and the helmets where we're gonna sci fi futuristic and of course you know let's see here twenty two years later jerseys look nothing like that but man. The mariners set a futuristic jersey. That they went with the pittsburgh. Pirates had a futuristic jersey with just a huge logo of the pirate head on the chest. Of course you get the pirates across the chest but this was just the head logo screaming at your front and center that they tried to use this spring forward and it says on here during the mercury mets game now. They displayed players on the video board as aliens. Mike piazza robin ventura. Green faces horns wacky haircut so Certainly an interesting sight to see. And i did not know a lot about the mercury mets in the uniform here until i did some research. But throw that into google. You'll find yourself having some fun for about five minutes. Tried to check out. These uniforms here but Looking at major league level uniform that were certainly wacky and weird. You have the oakland a.'s. They're all yellows that they rocked throwbacks. It looks like they ataman twenty thirteen straight yellow top bottom green long sleeve undershirts looking like elf from the christmas holiday. Coming down here of course they had all greens as well to go against the all yellow so they had a couple of interesting once. I looks like here. The denver bears at one point. They were infamous Looking at some in museums they had a strike zone uniform. Meaning that the top was white up until right through the letters and then the rest of it was blue and very similar on the waist down so it basically showed the empire. Hey here's the strike zone right in the middle of the letters to right above the knee and we're gonna make our uniforms different colors so we can see when that white baseball crosses through the strike zone against that blue top. We're going to know that that should have been called the ball and not a strike by yourself and you just missed one going on there. So that's a fascinating jersey to think about as well. You have the dodgers who rock day satin blue uniform. Some throwbacks for them. It looks like they are in pajamas. Essentially in these uniforms they They go way back. But there's a picture on twitter. I found from twenty fourteen that shows them and quality very good quality. But the one guy here made a joke. Elton john would have looked good in these. Because harry styles wore a costume very similar Before game three and got some publicity for post videos similar to what. Elton did way back when so. It looked very similar to elton and airy styles. Rocking the pastel with the swayed here in the sat and blue for the dodgers the san francisco giants they rocked purple checks one back here orange and purple because the manager. This is back when they were in. New york wanted to The colors of nyu which is violet in white so they wanted to honor them for a day and they ended up wearing purple. And apparently it's a bit much because there's some drawings here with the purple shorts checkered jersey. Some purple going on. It is just a lot for new york. And what you're looking at here. Let's see minor league level here again. The grizzlies they went with the tacos for one day the fresno tacos they got six different versions of that jersey here. That is just fascinating. Of course the lehigh valley iron pigs. They have their bacon jersey. I myself have a bacon hats for the pigs. I think it's absolutely fantastic. Says iron pigs in the middle of the bacon that you can't see until you kinda dive in their deep and check things out but that one's you know certainly a stretch but all uniforms let's see here alternate green for notre dame the all green uniforms the all orange uniforms for the orioles back in the seventies that they recently rocked certainly a lot going on there. The phillies throwbacks powder. Blues the allred's the pirates all yellows the conductor hats. I like to call them. In the throwbacks. I can only imagine watching a throwback game pirates all yellow orioles all orange and conductor hats going back and forth. It would just be man. My eyes wouldn't even know how to handle that so a lot going on there when it comes to that but Google some of these you know best jerseys out there you're going to see quite a few from The cubbies as well showing up here looks like a tucson toros jersey from nineteen eighty certainly fantastic. It's got some orange and green some read some brown some gray all of that just in the jersey itself so there's a lot of fun things happening out there but i know myself iraq to my ugly christmas sweater during the holiday season i had it on. Even though we weren't getting together with a lot of people. I decided to just have some fun. Bring some joy and rock and ugly christmas sweater. So hopefully you guys did the same out there You guys enjoyed this conversation about some of the worst uniforms in the history of baseball. But you're certainly gonna want to check out google and see some of these images for yourself but That wraps things up here for segment number. Three of the mcc baseball podcast. We'll step aside here one last time for a word from one of our sponsors and a word from our sister shows but when we come back we'll wrap things up we'll touch base. We'll conclude today's episode talking a bit about the hall of fame where we're at when it comes to that tracker and the updates as well as touch on baseball and hawaii and a few other odds and ends things so stick around everyone will be right back. Want to know the latest and soccer that listen to the golden state media concept soccer podcasts from l. s. the world premier. Li got you covered the latest update hottest matches news on the league's top players. It's the golden state media concept soccer. Podcasts listen down. Stopped back to the fourth and final segment of the gsm. See baseball podcast brought to you by the gmc. Podcast network ios kevin mahalick. Thanks for listening. Everyone brief change here for segment number. Four i wanna talk to you guys. I wanna give you an update on the minor league system. I know i talked to you. Guys a few weeks back a few episodes back kind of bigger. What was happening. What was going on since that time. It's actually become a public information where everybody is going to be in regards to their minor league affiliates and this came out a couple of weeks back but i feel like it got missed kind of in the shuffle of the world or in translation so i just wanted to kind of read all of the new affiliates because even as a phillies fan. There was some slight changes that i was not aware of. So what i'm going to do here is i'm gonna go through the teams and read you guys aaa aa. But i'm not going to read you. The changes like for baltimore high will now be aberdeen maryland. Which is up from short season. A and things like that. So i'm just going to tell you it's aberdeen and orioles fans listening out there. You guys will obviously be aware of the change. That's taken place within your own organization so for each fan group out there. I do wanna make you guys aware of kind of what's going on. But i'm not going to water down the segment for everybody else when it comes to kind of the changes and who went up. Who went down. But there were a handful of changes. There are quite a few teams that were in affiliation that are no longer affiliated. There were some changes in regards to moving up or down the chain of command. A few independent teams will now be triple a. organizations right there and minnesota's saint. Paul is now the triple team for the twins in rochester. Is now the aaa team for the nationals. So there's a lot of changes going on. So i'm just going to read the list and you guys is fans of your teams out. There can kind of connect the dots and figure out ultimately what those changes were but baltimore. You will have triple a norfolk double a bowie high. A. aberdeen and low a. Delmarva for your four affiliations. The red sox will have triple a. Chester let's see double a portland. High greenville south carolina in low a salem virginia for the red sox so there are still a little bit all over the place in regards to south carolina and virginia little spread out for them. This is going through american league and the national league here as well alphabetically so just wanted to clarify that but the white sox triple a charlotte. Double a birmingham high winston. Salem north carolina and low a. can napa north carolina so the white socks go into alabama and north carolina for their affiliations. The indians aaa columbus double a akron high. A lake county. Ohio and low a lynchburg virginia for them for the indian so they stay mainly in ohio there when it comes to their affiliations. The tigers aaa toledo aa erie. Pennsylvania high west michigan and low a. Lakeland florida for the detroit tigers and therefore of course lake wind was there Home down in florida for quite some time so that certainly makes sense for them. We have the houston astros aaa sugarland texas. That's the one that went from independent ball to aaa aa corpus. Christi high asheville in north carolina and low a. fayetteville in north carolina for the astros next step. We have the royals triple a omaha. Double a northwest arkansas high. A quad cities iowa and low a. columbia south carolina. So the royals abid all over the place there as well. You have the angels aaa salt lake city. Aa rocket city alabama. That's a long way from alabama to la. You have high a tri city which is in washington and low a. Inland empire which is in california as well so they stay relatively local except for the aa program for the angels for the twins. We have aaa saint paul. That's the other one from independent ball. Double a wichita. Kansas high a cedar rapids iowa and low a fort meyers florida. Which is where their spring training facilities the new york yankees they will go aaa scranton wilkes-barre aa somerset new jersey. Which was a previous independent ball league. High hudson valley and low a. Tampa so it does seem to be that low a. Will now be the spring training facilities as opposed to what used to be the high a level of spring training facilities the oakland athletics aaa las vegas aa midland texas high lansing michigan and low. Ace stockton we have down there. So they're going vegas texas michigan so those guys still bouncing all around. If you're the oakland athletics are coming up. In that organization the seattle mariners go aaa tacoma. Double a arkansas. Hi a everett. Washington and low modesto for the locations. Tampa bay triple a durham. Aa montgomery high a bowling green and low h charleston south carolina so tampa bay kind of keeping things local there. I enjoy that carolina kentucky. A nice little kind of corridor there for the race. The texas rangers. They go triple a round rock aa frisco high hickory north carolina and low a. down east north carolina for the rangers. The toronto blue jays there aaa is buffalo. Double a new hampshire high vancouver british columbia and low a. Dondon florida which is where their facility is down there now. Transitioning here over to the national league the arizona diamondbacks aaa reno double amarillo. High hillsborough oregon and low a. Visalia california so let's see here going from kelley to oregon to texas. If you're coming up through the diamondbacks organization the atlanta braves have triple a gwinnett county georgia aa mississippi high rome georgia and low augusta georgia so atlanta braves organization very Very centered in the state of georgia. Down there which is very well done for them. The chicago cubs go to aaa iowa. Aa tennessee hi a south bend indiana and low a. Myrtle beach so the cubbies a little bit all over the place when it comes to their affiliations in the future as cincinnati reds triple a louisville aa chattanooga high a dayton ohio and low a. daytona florida so those guys bouncing all around for cincinnati. Certainly trying to connect the dots here. The rockies triple a albuquerque aa hartford high spokane washington and low a. fresno california now fresno could potentially not accept this bid because fresno was previously a triple a level program and has since been replaced due to the two independent ball teams getting invite. So it is tb d. as to whether or not fresno will accept their demotion or they think that they will be able to kind of get more money on the independent ball circuit side of things the la dodgers aaa oklahoma city double a tulsa high great lakes michigan and. Low a rancho cucamonga california. So the dodgers low a team is local but the rest of the guys are all over the place so very fascinating to kind of see the dodgers in. What's going on there. The miami marlins triple a. jacksonville. Aa pensacola high. A beloit washington. Or excuse me. Wisconsin and low a. jupiter. Florida so jacksonville pensacola. And then randomly. High up in wisconsin. After loa was back down in florida. So miami in the marlins gonna take things all over the place. The brewers they go triple a nashville. Double a boxy. Mississippi high wisconsin and low a. Carolina as what we have here. So milwaukee going from mississippi to nashville to milwaukee the new york mets triple a syracuse sets. Rochester new york. They took that one from the twins. they recently had las vegas for the mets so they will now be syracuse. Which certainly makes a ton of sense aa binghamton new york. Hi brooklyn new york and low. A saint lucci florida so low as where spring training. The rest of your program is in the state of new york and things certainly make more sense here. If you're a mets fan moving. Forward the philadelphia phillies. They kept aaa lehigh valley. They have double a. And reading pennsylvania high is now the jersey shore which i believe was their low a affiliate a year ago and low a. is now clear water which was previously high so they were one of the few teams that actually had their pillar kinda set up for success prior to this rearrangement or read. Greements here So the phillies kinda. Stay with the status quo. The pittsburgh pirates aaa indianapolis aa altoona pennsylvania. Hi a greensboro. North carolina and low a. Bradenton florida so the pirates stick with indianapolis altoona going down there. Minor league path here. Few more teams here. Let's go as we finish things up. The padres aaa el paso texas aa san antonio texas high a fort wayne indiana and low. A lake elsinore california. So the padres starting california. Then go to fort wayne indiana then down to texas before you hop on over back to san diego to get your chance up here in the shell rounding up the league. Let's see the giants aaa sacramento double a. Richmond virginia and high. A eugene oregon. Low a san jose california so aa richmond must have been one of the lower tier guys picked here because san jose organ sacramento and then double a. richmond so if you're in the giants organization you're going to want to get out of that aa level as quick as possible and get to triple a. because being called up from aa isn't gonna make much logistical sense coming from virginia. All the way over to san francisco the saint louis cardinals. They have aaa memphis aa springfield missouri. High ap oria illinois and low a palm beach. Florida that is where their spring training facility is and then the washington nationals. Oh excuse me they triple a rochester. So the nationals took the twins aaa rochester aaa syracuse for the mets. That's always been there. Aaa so i apologize for mistaken that one but the nationals took rochester from the twin sir they also stayed with double a harrisburg pennsylvania. High a team in wilmington delaware in low a team in fredericksburg virginia. So of course there are upwards of forty almost fifty teams that don't find themselves currently with affiliated baseball or twenty five teams find themselves with any sort of baseball affiliation because there have been two to three kinds of smaller independent leagues that have manifested themselves one of them locally up here kind of in the jersey new york philadelphia delaware area where a lot of local teams who no longer have affiliation or putting together like a wooden bat league so to speak to kind of keep things going and continue to make money. But it'll be fascinating to see ultimately how these things work out. But i do think for the most part ninety five percent certain these are set in stone with only a handful of changes yet to be made to the entire minor league of structure organization there. But that does it for a minor league. Talk here for the last couple of minutes. I wanna give you guys updates on the hall of fame ballots. You know here. We are as of december twenty seventh time of recording. We're up to only eighteen percent of ballots known. I know that as an increase since we last spoke but it's upwards of Just about sixty three ballots that are now public unknown out there and curt schilling currently at seventy four point six percent. You guys know out there. You need seventy five to reach the hall. So i do think he has a good chance here to ultimately eclipse that marking. Get in like we spoke about in detail in the previous episode and then bonds and clemens continued to remain steady at sixty eight point. Seven which i think is Continued increase over their past and a projection into the right direction. Where ultimately i think those to do get in when it comes to their tenth and final ballot and the voters are just going to make them sweat it out for their full possible waiting time. But that'll do it for this episode of the mc baseball podcast. Once again. I just want to thank you guys for listening december twenty eighth year. The christmas holiday was last week. A lot of people are celebrating a ton of different ways. So i just wanna give a shout out to the kids out there who maybe couldn't celebrate christmas morning. You celebrate later in the day if you're traveling and family or if you celebrate the twenty eighth or twenty ninth my family. We lived in texas for a few years. We would always come back to pennsylvania and spend christmas and christmas eve with family since we were kind of the only ones not in the area because of that as an eight year old kid that meant. I had to wait to get my christmas morning until the twenty seventh when we would travel back after seeing all of our friends family. So i know there's kids out there. I know there's family situations where maybe you have an open your gifts yet and you're going to hear in the next day or two whether you went to disneyworld or you're on vacation. Whatever the circumstances you know. Merry christmas to everybody listening out there happy holidays. Of course. I wish everybody a happy new year like i said there will not be an episode.

Body Moshe Tommy spokes teacher and the ones and twos boys. Aaron, Judge. Is I said he was in God mode when he hit the home run to make five in a row in the game. But I, he's I think God is jealous of Aaron Judge Right. Now, I've never this is crazy. What he's doing right now, you just can't get the fucking guy out you just you either gotta walk 'em treating like Barry bonds or accept the consequences of giving up a four hundred and sixty foot plus homerun to lose the game, which is what Matt Barnes Tonight, how we feel and everybody. Real. Good. There's like those two thousand seventeen streaks. He'd go on, but even better. I, don't think he ever did this in two, thousand, seventeen, I read. streaks around this. Good. But yeah, this does feel like this feels different. Through eight hundred, he gets up, it's like I, think it's going to be a home I. Almost I'm getting like spoiled. Now, because I go, he's gotTa, hit a home run here. He's pretty much. And I WANNA. Fucking Hump his leg today walking the Yankees mice one a half to down basically all game. Easy Dude I. don't even have to watch the games MOCO. They're going to win the Yankees. The Yankees are not going to lose again. I, don't know I. Really Don't well as fun as this season has been so far. I've only been games. It's making me like a little mad of like imagine how much fun we would have had one, hundred, sixty, two game season. The imagine the summer of them. Just bashing a baseballs all summer long probably winning one, hundred, twenty games like we'll take what we can get, but it is like a little bit like God damn. Finish the sixty games on pace to break Barry Bonds homerun record. Papa, yeah, he's GonNa. Road. He he's going to finish it down pit twenty seven or so. His over under for the year was thirteen and a half. That's what it's half way. there. Would eight games I can count on my hands, how many games have been, and he's already basically at the point of halfway through. It's crazy. It's so nice. So it's like fi like even if I'm pitching sucks for the day, we the score ten runs were good. It's either way we have it. We're always make up for it. I don't WanNA stop talking about judge because we're with so much I just. I'm like gushing over him right now, but the way they beat Boston, this weekend was so mean, Friday, just having Montgomery out there. His first start in two years looks great. We'll dive into that in the show Saturday. They. Just they be what Lewis Avalon. Nelson's majorly debut and hailstorm. They just beat him like that, and then Sunday, they give him the belief that Oh wait. You could win a game. Good job. You guys can go to sleep. The weekend. Sure. He lost the series seasons very over you guys stink. But like Hey beat the Yankees one game and you can always hold that and no, no Aaron judge just ripped out soul and just pissed. So. Mean those corrobos probably had like eighteen tweets. He had to delete from his drafts type W ready to go. Just thinking things. WE'RE GONNA go their way today and it just at the end of the game and it's just gone. It was beautiful I. Mean It's fucking team so much fun, and you're right sixty games like it's a little. It sucks a little bit, but it's still so much fun I. Think Dave Dave sent out that tweet I like sports tweet I. Think he's had in what like almost a year? It seems like because he's obviously been so consumer the stocks, but he was like, how does anyone like take joy which sportsman, but that's just that's just I mean he was he was going to sit on the Yankees Tonight Antigen that just got taken away from, which is very, very full. We think you know a guy fucking doesn't wanNA gamble anymore, I can't have that Dave in my life. No. No? No. Not especially with like I mean. The NBA. Full the NBA. So fucking fun to watch right now and Everything's like looks like a video game. It just feels like I'm watching. Games now I on Saturday the Yankee game when they have like the virtual fans and Fox I forgot they did that. So when I turned it on and I saw fly, it was like the top of the I. I forgot who it was on the red socks or fly ball to right field, and they showed the virtual I like almost I almost started screaming in my liver was Oh my God like there's people in the stands like what is happening I completely forgot they were doing that and it looked so real like my heart I froze froze like that, I don't know how long as what is happening. But I have to say about the Yankees. So I've been pretty anti-noise like a big crowd noise. I don't know I. Don't think it's bias. I think the Yankees have had like by far the best crowd. Like, control guy like he has it down. So well, we're like everything makes a Lotta sense that you're good amount of noise. I've been really impressed with everyone was complimenting Fox on Saturday and not realizing that Fox has nothing to do with Let's just what the players are hearing. It is the Yankees controlling that I said this when they did the exhibition games with the mets. The mets when they went to city for the first game, the the volume was turned to like three and it was like the quickest like cut off of like music ever, and then went to the Yankee Stadium. I was like this is so much better and it's gotten way better since and obviously get used to things and whatever. But I'm yeah, it was really good I. Thought I think the sound even like. Bad calls. Almost I could feel like they have like the perfect sound for that. The perfect for like a fly ball, like pretty average fly bottle after the crowd goes. And then like like when it gets lot like you have down, is like incredible I. Liked it much. But I liked it this weekend. The one thing that I was annoyed with the fans this weekend to things so I think. Any judge home runs this weekend. I couldn't tell where they were landing on for Fox. Game? I. Couldn't tell where where landed I had no idea and I wanted to know because it was a fucking Bob, and I just had zero clue where the ball ended. So 'cause just fake fans out there and they just get away and to Sunday night this type of game back and forth. Back. And forth, slugfest I wanted like the atmosphere like I. This is the first night where I missed live action. Fans because I mean, could you imagine how stayed stadium would be shaking on charges were judges winning on shaking? So that's where that's the first time in any sport so far that I've truly missed fence, but I'll get over because this is so much. fucking fun to watch and quick quick sat here. The Yankees are seventeen and five against the Boston. Red? SOx. No less twenty, two games played. That's Kinda Fun, not bad like that. But? Yeah. I mean Aaron Judge. I. This is. This is a lot of fucking fun to watch. He's at a point where you either just have to walk into this point or he's going to beat you and it's it's just I. You throw in Glaciers Kinda struggling right now. And I think you're probably GONNA see a lot more walks and they're going to cry probably trying like dare to beat them Lipton. Carlo Labor right? You could see that and eventually like. Labour's couldn't care a lot better, and then this lineup will just be ridiculous. Absolutely. Stupid One thing I did want to note though that will be getting slept on and. Scaring toward a little bit 'cause, my heart stopped in the home run and I was panicking and all that I? Mean I was freaking out because it was crazy but Mike Talk Man Soul, and base in that inning with two outs. First, he gets on, you know just any your professional that and he just he steals steals it pretty easy to talk when just as wheels all of a sudden he stole, he's tied for the League and Major League baseball stone with two. Yeah. But last year, only six I think in like any played a good amount to only have six. You'd think if he has the speed with fuck was that. So I guess the running more, they'd be more aggressive. But I love that call and then he comes through honestly. I, I don't know what happened. But when Dj hit I, forgot talking of on second wait we're tied. He's like Oh you're talking about scoring easily without a throw and the Yankees just like, wow, that was awesome like you much money on I run light. So this was a fantastic night and then Dj Obviously. We're Ryan's at score position. Just, it's legitimate automatic at this point like you don't even have to think about your worry late in the game guy on second guy at third, he gets the job done every. That's what the Yankees ever gets extra innings and he's do like there's going to score because he's got second base to start the inning by the way. I do love the I. I'm all in on these these extra inning things, it's fun to watch it. Out of. Our though lay of your team. Like you're up at the top of the tenth Don't store that run. It's just like this kind of embarrassing. Yeah. I was watching This is pathetic to admit, but I was I was born. I, was watching Grey's oils last night and I went extra innings and the raise did not score the top of the inning and the Orioles. One, on a bloop single orioles by the way sweep, the raise they shoot news. Day took two or three from Boston, and they play us into get destroyed a five in one when they don't play the Yankees Crate I. Mean. Now those wins against the orioles are like very impressive wins. Almost. Just lost on. Thursday right. Before the season was like I will what I was convicting for a to nineteen and our own like. Like. The not going to be Oreos in red sox time like no I. Think they really will. I think they're I honestly think they'll lose maybe one game to combine both of them. I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit here. Much. You'd said at the Orioles. And Red Sox we battling themselves. Well, you're a little like you didn't. You didn't have enough faith in yourself because the orioles. Just, way better team to the Boston red. SOX are like it's going to be Toronto and Boston. Battling for less, it's not going to be the orioles or is. A little bit. I mean right now, the royals are in the playoffs I. Know I know we're only eight games in. Ten the play games, but that's a six of the season. The Orioles are in the playoffs. People actually take seriously and they have I mean, they have Allie Richmond in the day could call up that a Godchild. I don't think they're going to service diamond bullshit like that. But. They might be like kind of good. Hope. He's end up somehow getting to play them in the first round of the Gosh. Do. They get to play the Orioles and twin somehow just too. I mean, I know the twins are starting at just automatic buys. Care, against, John Means in the game, one of the. Once I care and it's like Yankees minus three, ninety at home game. One of. This. Man This is this is the best record tied for the best record they've had in franchise history through eight games. Seven one. That's pretty fucking cool. which actually I mean unless they start undefeated where you're so I, guess this is not the craziest APP, but it's just nice 'cause. It's kind of a pretty now. I think about a further. It's like now. I mean. It's not as good as you can be. Yeah. But we all thought. I think every thought that they were going to start slow. Because just like felt like, of course, like they'll start five and five. Seven. One out of the gate and I was reminding my roommate's like their second schedule is the Marlins, the orioles, and like the mets who are disaster train wrecks. I mean I assume the oils water will find its level with them, but maybe not, but who knows? Bridge will cross. We got there. But that second the schedule Parlay that with this kind of start and you're talking about forty, five, forty, five, fifty minutes. Thing. I. Said just insane. It's crazy. Eight wins. Yeah. Totally. We can't go too much further into the show continuing to bury the lead of the night here, which was era joining the Pantheon of great sports broadcasting calls on Aaron. Judge. Home run I mean just a breathtaking moment. Let's play that right now. Tiger Woods Lebron James Michael Jordan airing. I was freaking out over Aaron, Judge, home run and and I completely forgot what was happening when he I mean, that's just a are getting super excited, and just being like here's a bunch of great athletes that I really like and then not even trying to land the plane I didn't even try to offer an explanation as to why he as to why? Through those names out there and I thought maybe you know we'd be like Oh. This just know he just threw that out there. They just went on with their day and it was incredible. It. was such a random high to light it was it was after he scored like it wasn't like right off the only shootings in the moment in scores silent for a little bit, and unlike just went with it, I can't believe he just throw all those names out there like nothing about it make sense like I, I've been trying to draw like they're all. All really good athletes. That's all I can have, but it's not even like a passing the torch because of the order it's out of order chronologically like tiger would be, it'd be Jordan Tiger Lebron IVC, I need to add something real quick. The fact that he just did chew basketball players and he didn't do Wayne. Gretzky or something is another lane another one. Or like no baseball players in there to be like all great based just. Truly nothing about it made sense. Then like. Trying to figure out like are they don't even all like athletes from the same company like Nike athletes or whatever like. Just, not not a thing about it made sense it was dropping, but it was incredible. He just didn't go back on the comment like since that point, right? He just forgot about it. nope. Just Dr- he dropped that bomb and he just kept walking along with his day. I feel like risk aversion, it's eleven thirty eight. Hour. Removing the game I. Feel like he's still thinking like what the fuck was that you know I think fucking thinks he nailed no scourge, not a-rod. Okay I think like he's like he's. He's he ignored it because he's like what I think almost. After, the home run that early in a game. That gave him. Five five games with a home run I almost think like someone texted a-rod reaction swimming and he's like what this is good and he just saved it, and then he's like the next time you home I'm GonNa use this that he just like, Yep. Sure this work even think of it on his own. He's like, Oh, I think I think it was I. I, think it was the opposite. I. Think it was pure spontaneous. I just think he got so excited and it was like who are all great athletes and he just started listing them out in no particular order for no reason, and he just ended on Aaron Judge and and that's it. We'll never hear about that moment again. Yeah. It was all time. Version. I mean I like it because you fan but red sock fan like chill out do especially. Now because it's no fans Yankees, red sox Sunday baseball. You gotta you gotTA revamped up for the go ahead home run. But for the first home run, if I was a red sox fan, I'd be like Jesus Christ Dick. Chilton. was like going nuts for timeline five straight games of the homers. Pretty fucking. Rare I said I like it, but I'm just trying to put myself in like if if if like Bogor. Talking about mad about how you doubt playing Aaron Judge Home Run call I I. Honestly, I think I just don't like that. Ever since the Francisco Door, Grand Slam. That's still game. Two of the two, thousand, seventeen LDS's accent, the money I just hate him members. That's his. That's his. His vintage like go. He did that one judge at the home run in the eighth in it and know I hate him for that? I do. He does he gets a Lotta Shit. But those he nailed tonight I didn't really kind of like to Denver bomb. But I assume he went nuts for that too because apple has destroyed. Denver so much what he's on steroids become like the registered basement of all. Yeah. When did he become Manny Machado when? I thought he was. Out there, that is rolls over. Like? He's really good but fucking. He's going to get caught for steroids in the next twelve months. That's my. Market, down, he's the next. Great like big steroids on baseball as Devos's GonNa like winning MVP or something, and then immediately get caught for steroids. I'm very confident on. Steroids. Taste definitely thinking like during Koren's, they're only test for the road that test for steroids let's take announced. I. Up, I will say entering tonight, he had zero. Zero Arby's on the year. That Saw Perfect. Argument. Right right. TJ's argument. Here. He's been A. While through seven games tonight, he was good but. The defense is my pro well I mean, that's just. That used to throw the ball into the twentieth row. He was like the worst effect. He's like Antar him early similar and. I don't know that was that was bullshit. He robbed Judge Peter out there for and do hard just that one plane agree. Yeah. How was bad? I wasn't good at all. They're just too weird. We're night Hicks versus the sky was a battle. The whole night he had to have been I. Don't know what unless he was drunk, but like like he anytime a bog ahead in the it kind of us an adventure like we'll hick see this ball or they're saying to invest version was saying like it. There are members bus only, but they were like how basically now with? No fans. Like. Alpha. Those are almost like the kids. The little leaguers like out there picking the grass in the outfield like nobody around them to like keep them into the game or whatever. Just like kind of drifting out on their own. Maybe that's part of it now. I think he's really bad defense. You Hicks. His bad defender. Oh. Man Squads still thinking about Andrew. Okay. All right. Okay. Follow is I didn't listen to guy. said I totally ignored whitten said Hicks just. Had A tough time out there, and we're trying to figure out why give him give him the benefit of doubt whatever and. All. Right. Yeah, and Har. I, mean, that was to his credit. Since like basically, the first spring training game like back in March or February, back in February, that was like the first time I've seen him really fucked up in the outfield just happened to happen on ESPN Sunday night baseball. So it's going to get like. Blown up, that wasn't great they. Look as a terrible optic and also very avoidable error too. Yeah. Let's run and then another run because what like the runs scored on that play and then the guy got third, he came home on the hit. It was a it was just a parlay of absolute dog shit but. The point I want to make an talk. We, talk about before stealing, he needs to be the everyday left fielder Mike talk until unless clint freighters up here, and you can split those to mytalk man. Is a starting baseball player that needs to be a every time. He had three hits on Saturday, obviously bench on Sunday, whatever we're trying to the Enron thing, but he's an a plus defender. Has a pretty good arm as we've seen when he was out in Centerfield he he can throw people out and he gives you quality about hits lefthanders to I'd be mytalk when he's starting fielder moving forward unless you're calling up couldn't frazier. A different discussion because that is just another story here, but and he's mashing by the way down the alternate side. Someone sent me a video. Of Him, just going ham against whatever pitcher you're throwing them, but it's mytalk when to be starting starting left fielder I've seen enough at this point I. Agree. I. Think, it's his. His job, a like. Put them in there. Let them fucking get every day of Batson. See what happens. He's definitely our best option right there. Good for Brett, Gardner for hitting a home run. Well. No. No. No nicer bike, it's against the red SOx pitching I. don't even know who the fuck gave that up like these people were imaginary coming in this weekend. So I'm not like Oh you see Gardy homer Mike. Yeah. I mean that might have been just on a T. ball might as well. Just. Meaningless Homerun. His just fucking. He's always the always does that making stadium polls. I mean, we've seen that. So many times I still don't want him in my life. No, no, no Mike. Is I think the clear front runner just to be starting left fielder right now for this team I, mean just everything you need and and he's a good a good to have in the bottom newer. Let's talk a little bad, and we're GONNA get really sad. But really little bad. From today's Game James. Paxton. Stinks I don't know. I don't know what's going on man. He's not throwing hard by way. Quick thing on a rod would paxton first inning. I don't guess this. Is Probably the third batter. And his veto is not there. He throws ninety, five, ninety, six comfortably gets up to ninety, eight sometimes and. This Gershon Sarah After. PITCHY goes. Have you seen him above ninety two yet and he goes no. The fastest I've seen. Him was ninety three, it's like. So. Slow. I think there's something about that humps. What? When? You say north of. It's like people have a different meaning of it. I think you're you're, yes. I swear to God by Oberg, the state like north of is like. A hundred? What? No, he said north of ninety two. He said specifically I know TJ. Do you know what I'm talking about is like there's some weird line in the sand where some people think north of means more than, and some people think north of means that is the furthest north. Yes. It's like if you say north of ninety two, some people think you're talking about only things above ninety two and some people think you're talking about everything and the ninety two is the highest. So. There's a couple of things that are like airings about. There's a couple of arguments that are like that where it's like, obviously, it means this. But some crazy people think it means something. But how does any of what you just said back up that he didn't like I'm. Like. Some people say like I've probably watched. I've probably watched like north of thirty episodes of this I. Know, but that's like that's people sometimes I. Think it's like twenty eight episodes. That's Gillette's not. Could, work I. You're talking about I. had this fight. There's no and just to be clear everybody I am on your side, which is shocking. I think that's shocking that you're on here. I think the north of ninety two, just like ninety three. Well, like people say I probably watch north of thirty episodes that can mean twenty eight now that can't that's row rather says that this is dumb and wrong and incorrect, there's not a different, nor let's put you know numbers on a on a scale of vertical scale. If you go north of it, that's higher. I think era just made a slip of the tongue i. don't think he was. He thinks. Scale. Thinking quo, I? Think he misheard version and thought he said, have you seen him at ninety, five, ninety six and he goes? No. The highest I've seen is ninety three. That's the only explanation for him. Mishearing Gershon. Not This what. North. More than. Urinate I think right now. We should, we should put out a poll of people what they think. I guarantee it's going to be controversial I. Think it will be the most lopsided Paul I. Think it'd be one, hundred, ten percent on guaranteed controversy. So how do we for? Jake? You pull up the short porch account. Let's dual live. tweet. Does north of. Say. If I say north of ninety two, what number do you don't you too because that's not related to the game? Let's say like. Okay. So say. Do a situation of. Advice I. watched north of thirty episodes. What does that Mean Live Paul Wall we are recording? is like if I say. Yeah. If I say I've watched. North I mean this isn't even like a controversial. I don't understand thirty is this like one of those memes where like you see blue or yellow or whole yearling one was this week to I've seen that one? And the quotes and then say how many of I watched and do. And do a poll more than thirty or less than thirty. I. If anybody votes less than thirty, they should off themselves telling you. It's going to be more controversial in the US. There's there people might I actually worry that we're GONNA. Lose our twitter account because of how? Live poor recording if I say, I've watched more than. If. I say. Worth thirty episodes. How many have? I watched more than thirty or less than thirty. where? I say quote I've watched north of thirty episodes. End Quote how many? Don't. Don't do. The second option is less than thirty. Do it like around thirty? Say Like around thirty? Thirty I thought. No CEO. Around. North North when they're saying north of its. Brian. Around thirty because I think that for that definitively nails it because it's clearly more. But some people might say around I. Guess Not Saying no one is saying that north of means less Mardi. twenty-eight could mean thirty. Yes. But that's they did I mean it's less. It's around thirty like when they say north of thirty, they think it's around third currently solve I'm very I. Know I just can't wait to show you that it's. It's I, remember have this conversation people like very lafley three options. No just to north of more than thirty or around. I think that's the accurate way of explaining what we're going right now. I'm certain. Fierce. Okay. Let's let's let's let's real back in somehow. I. All right. Okay. Chase. Packs that we've talked about him. Sure. Could sucks and I think he's our worst pitcher. I, think he's the worst pitcher on the team. Is that crazy to say. No? Roe Confidence with that guy on the MT zero. I think. Jay. Source. I don't even consider him like a real person. I do the same exact. I. I. Kind of our I know. Packs, it sucks. Here's. Here's what it is to me I. Think you call them into the office tomorrow, right? You sit him down. So three distance and you say, Hey, man. Are you capable of throwing ninety six miles an hour like right now, and you're just not. And if the answer is no, we're putting you on the injured list because that seems to be youth rowing five miles an hour on average, a five or less than you do. Is just not. Okay right now, that's not you're not to win baseball games doing that. So we're GONNA, put you in the. I. As long as you don't say you've been like pulling a prank on us and we're GONNA call Clark Schmidt. That's that's the conversation. You have a Monday morning, and then you call question because he's not gonna say is pulling a prank. He just can't throw it hard right now, and he's probably dead arm or something. He's not saying you call Glucksman. Hurt. Spring training to like you know could be lingering, but that's nothing to do with the arm. Yeah, but. Yeah. True. I don't know just related to like training and getting. That's a problem that he can't throw ninety six right now, ninety, five, ninety, six jets, his average festival. A number of times like early last year was he hidden high nineties from from jumps? Yes. Yes. So it's not even like it takes them like remember seems to take a while to warm up throughout the year. Now, he no I I. Remember his first Star we've been like throws very hard. This is like. A. Lot of good stuff here that if you put together and stays healthy, we'd be looking very good pitcher and that guy is not there. So. He doesn't even locate when he does. I mean, he got, he got kind of dictate the Knicks missed play in his final inning, which lets more runs, but he's still getting smacked around before that gave the home to Bogart's. It was just red hot tonight. No one could get him out. I. Don't know why they continue to pitch the only going to get hit right now. And? You know packs needs to go. Mike. King a nice job of filling in for him again. Gets dicked with the final homerun. The second home run ball. I don't think he should have been out there for the fourth inning. But then again, you think about it, it felt like a sample lasagna out there on Thursday where he went one extra inning but. With, the state of the bullpen right now, I'd actually don't know who they would thrown in that fourth in it like maybe out of Ian you ask get like four or five hours from him, but they basically had off Vino and Britain is the only good pitchers, available tonight, and the other guy gets was job than older. So when you take it I, guess you take four of king rather than go into holder and I. Guess I. Completely. Argue with you there, Boone's hand kind of tied, but the bullpens in a state of flux right now. But the bottom was passing into pitch better. You looked really good tonight. King Midas the homeless like He. His the movement on his pitches were filth that to seem is breaking ball I was super like impr-. We like my guy but. He was he was filthy. He's got. He's got a lot of little AJ. Brunette him. His rotation is wind up and the movement. He had a lot of good movement office like to seamer and Shit big fan of him and like good good that he's getting I was a little worried after his. His appearance gets the nationals through like four innings. Whatever I was worried. He was sent down like burned his arm, whatever they seem to like him, and they just want to keep using it, which is good, and I think they were talking to boone tonight, and he's like they were like, can you just give us a give introduction about Mike and like what he's about and boom raving about, and he's like he was used banged a little bit with the injuries obviously last year cows back. Impressed us, and now he's here and he's to say, okay, good. Good good for our boy because he's been on the show twice. Just like stuff. So I'm very happy. He got in there and he looked good tonight any kind of that lens kind of. What I'm kind of just mumbling, it's so fucking hot here. I. It's reached like a ninety five degrees in this room. So like I'm kind of just losing my mind I'm in the SIM. I'm in my basement I'm home and my Internet my room with a zone. I'm having hubs obsolete game too little update to our twitter poll eighty, seven percent more than thirty and coli responded don't know the context, but MOESHA's is. The comparison I was thinking of is there is an argument on twitter like a month ago about meeting. So if your boss said, the meeting has been moved forward two hours, we're not doing that. That's that's what I was thinking of. Two hours earlier. That's different than saying you're north of something. Hours antle. Now you're an idiot they. We move forward two hours. It's been moved if our if our two PM meeting has been moved forward two hours, it's That'll be back forward. Forward is. To you fucking are you guys like playing a prank on me right now? If you take the clock and it's two o'clock and you move forward, you know time. Doesn't matter that I. If you say we're moving a meeting forward. That means they're it earlier. A. Fucking asshole there at twelve months before. Stop sect me opposite of forward. What would you think and if you were moving it earlier, we moved it. So. So if you're moving in. Two PM, to twelve PM you're moving it back. I don't know about that one. CanNot say that that would also be PM. Yeah. No Shit because. Time this is so much different than the time thing. This is. I. Think this is even crazier arguing. No, no. Both of these are crazy to say that moving in a meaningful were two hours means you're moving it later in the day is just as saying north of means less than. It's common said north of means more than, but close to thirty. Thirty five, what does that? Guy. arrested. Arrest Him right now. He just voted for both I think. Someone's making their own rules. All, right. TJ Do another twitter poll just so you could tell. About forward. No, that's been done arrayed. That was a conversation like three weeks ago. Wasn't it? I know. Yeah. That was take Casey radio thing. I, believe I'm just badly on. All right. Let's move on the reason a bullpen strapped. Let's get really sad right now. I mean, it's fucking ruined my night on Saturday absolutely. Ruined it. The judge homers tonight are helping me cope with it a little bit. But Tommy Canley. Had, tours, UCSF, Tommy John, and I'm legit like devastated I. got that baseball is so much less fun without Tommy Canley coming in the game. Striking people out with his change up and just screaming at people. This sucks I'm like obviously is a big part of the I'm more devastated from like just a human perspective. Yeah. It's such a good guy. We had him on. On the show a few months ago, he's just like a ball of energy. I know still probably be around the around the locker room and stuff, but it's just not. He will with touch which I think kinda sucks sued just 'cause it's great. pitcher yacht sucks as good person for clubhouse to, and I don't know I just hope things trash. You don't think around. Not. Because of the but I, don't think he'll be around. Somewhere else. Yes. Because they don't like they're trying to minimize the amount of people like they're yeah. Maybe, they can have them on like facetime. The whole time you can hear him sleep. Or like no. No. Tommy, just like is maybe make make him like this. The fans like the sound is just Tommy Canley watching the game from home and just Kind of all in. Like. That would be pretty genius Tommy. Canley screams need to be around the see moving forward and I will not accept a result of that because I mean, this is yeah. I, agree like they'll figure out the bullpen. Chapman's Chapman's coming. He's grown. It's free and he'll probably be your next weekend I would think and Britain. I. What the Hell is going on I, mean he he? Wasn't available on Saturday for some reason and. We'll talk when Nick Nelson second might be a big role. Soon, I think the bullpen, they'll be fine, but it's a, it's a blow, but it's not like a huge blow where we're fucking. still say you know, but but just like from like a happiness. Also it. Now I WANNA, throw up with him about to say, but it's not out of the question that you never see him on the Yankees. Again. After next season right free agent after next year like it's not completely out of the like. What is he command now? There he is in new. York, I grew up a Yankee fan so like and obviously theme coming back on a one year like prove deal with the Yankees kind of like Adele and thing except he didn't do that. What do you mean except like Dell? And did not come back to the? No. But I'm saying like what we're like, you know what Dell and indeed took from other teams is what he would take from the Yankees like twelve months from that fifty. I hope for that because. Having any other team, see fun would fucking short me not rendering fuck that like he is. Now that's that sucks We mentioned Chavan comebacks. That's good. Yeah. Moving forward. He's GonNa Suck Let's talk Saturday real quick I mentioned before. Tanakh so? Tanaka. debuts. I thought he actually pretty good until he gave the homer, but I mean, the the villa was there was a ninety five splitter was splitting. Very well, thought of Control was there. He looked at Boston. It was nice to see Moscow just spec out there. Dude. fucking lasted a month removed from taking hundred and twelve to the skull if that happens to me. Like. I never. Watch baseball. Never mind, play it. Never mind pick up a ball I hide in my room. He's been paid a good amount of money at this point a lot a lot of money at this point I take my money I go hide in room for like five years of total darkness and I never even come out if I hear the sound of a ball hitting that I'll start crying. This guy just comes back on the mound in a month. That's fucking. fucking crazy to me. It's just like I. Just Baseball Players Athlete Professional Athlete wired differently, and the I just cannot imagine like coming back like that. No problem smiling the dancing I hidden skull and he was good to go and he looked good. So hopefully, he'll get stretched out. People always hurt, no. No, like he just like fifty pitches was limit probably go sixty seventy next, and then he'll build his way up there, but overall, just really happy to see. Masa back there. Yeah it looked like you said, I think he looked really good especially, if you the first couple innings not stretched out obviously, but you know people are like now the net because Paxton struggle, the narrative is GonNa is already becoming like what is the Yankees rotational click behind Coal Yada Yada Yada Tanaka is going to be fine like once he stretched out, he's a really good pitcher. He's great in the playoffs. Jordan. Montgomery is awesome like he's just a really good starting pitcher showed a Friday night and then yeah, happened and Paxton have struggled I. Think it's a little overblown like all the Yankees pitching besides Garrett Cole. Like macierewicz is is here and he's legit war. Say the Yankees don't have good. Pitching is just a tired. Lazy. Narrative. I, think. and. No one will ever credit Masa for what he doesn't play like outside the Yankees and no one is going to credit. Jordan Montgomery for being a good pitcher like they just stay here that name like number five patrol that George Montgomery. Clark Schmidt. Garrett. Cole and Mike King are realistically the future of this starting rotation for the next five to ten years like all those guys are young and Kohl's in his prime and all that Montgomery his rookie year. He had like a sub four year a he had over. He had about one hundred and sixty innings. He was just good at pitching out of trouble which he did on Friday night. He had a few really like well, time double plays. The guy just pitches got some good swings and misses he was on pitching injure for a few a few of his his swing. He he's people look look silly out there. Montgomery was big, but it was and it was nice. But Tanaka obviously shorten because the not stretched out that left the Yankees. Now, we already talked about the bullpen big shorthanded Saturday. It was the most oriented ever seen it. They had to go to Louis Avalon who I just no idea. Why is on this roster? He was met and he's he's just not a good picture. Look Pretty Good Greenwich. The Red Sox I. Mean he did his job and then they go to Nick Nelson. Who was one of the human? Human Brooks ski recalled up for Clint and? And, not enough people know about these guys and you know Nick Nells Emmys a fourth round pick from from twenty sixteen. Good stuff. He looked fucking incredible on Saturday. I mean real like really really president, his first batter strikes, three pitches. I was like okay, Hello Dick Nelson, you throw the easiest ninety at I've seen a long time i. you see Nick Nelson and you. Get by ninety mile. An hour fastball uses like off speed pitches to like make it work. Do Ninety, eight. Just I just was stunned I like this probably on me for not knowing about the guy I haven't seen him pitcher. Obviously, no. One's seen a pitch, a major league setting, but the ninety eight jumped out of me. It was like, Oh, I'm Tom. Tom, you want to say something about neck. You fallen in love with a man and his name is Nick Nelson I. Mean. This isn't even like Tyler Lyons Tony Zik or it's like a little bit tongue in cheek I logistic nickname I. I don't know why. But so Saturdays Watch the game. He threw one pitch Nick Nelson I. Think his first pitch. Pitch what seven miles per hour, ninety, eight miles per hour, I, just turned to my dad. I was like this. Guy's going to have an unbelievable career and I thought to myself about tweeting and out a tweet this out after one pitch I've seen enough and I didn't I didn't do it and I'm GonNa. Regret that forever because that could have been like. Like that tweet where when he's in the Hall of Fame Twenty Years From now, look this guy called it after one pitch what? I. Mean. He just kept proving me more right over the three innings like He. I mean, Tommy Lee goes down and nick. Nelson rises like a Phoenix from the ashes I. Where did the Hell? Is this guy come from? Ninety seven ninety eight easy out of the pen with like. Good. Movement. Not. Even like exaggerate on, keep could be a huge. I saw your tweet like. No we need to be really you want. Yes I watch him, but I did like. fucking. Ninety eight gets me hotter than nobody else. But this is you guys are acting like he's one of those unbelievable human beings in the world and I want. To be. opened. I've I've talked about before in the show in twenty eleven around got into irrational confidence in von. Nova where I said I would take him against any starting pitcher in a must-win game. By needed three outs right now against Mike Trout, I might take Nick Nelson. fucking in saying dude I I'm all in for I, wanted to be great. We're playing the fucking red sox. Huge. Huge piece to a bullpen. Look. I, don't Mario. The numbers I look with my eyes and I saw What I saw from scouts I was a is going to have a long illustrious career in this. In this league, Tommy, let me let me tell you this a note. Thank God Tomsk bellies ballistic the being the fucking thing I'm not gonna I'm, not, GONNA lie. If Zach Britton was unavailable again because he wasn't available. Saturday. Because of workload whatever he warmed up too many times this week with a weird thing for Buna, US, can close out a game but. If he wasn't available, I was going to look for the bullpens like Nick Nelson grab without balls. He's probably. He's like a clear fourth in the bullpen trick. You have. You have Britain out of a green or whoever you want, and then I really think Nick Nelson its fourth. That's not even a joke like with Kane down now way. On on. What starts to one because we haven't done yet. Let's stay. Let's bullpen. Who'd we fucking trusted so. Number one for me, we can't have Chapman. Right? Let's take him out of the. Only guys. We've seen chattering green clear cut number one for me as absolute. Look. The best like. Blowing people away and laughing in their faces, they walk away number two. I'm actually GONNA put Britain. One Brit. Know. Britain I don't know. He just seemed so solid in his role. If I need three outs, I just feel like Chad. Green. He's more susceptible to have real bad inning. Like Zachary Zach Britton A. Britain green out of you know nick. Nelson. Britain green on Via. Nelson? No I'm going. No. I'm going Green Brin. Avi, no. No I did that role. Chad, green, off Vino. Britain. Nick Nelson. I Trust I. Trust out of you know more than Britain right now. Out of I mean I've had no problems out of you. Know you know he's still just. Out. But the playoffs are still in the back of your head a little I think. Of. The regular season. So we're talking we're talking about right now. But then, Nicholas. Nicholson most who do you have about nickname? Passionate Nelson folk in a second inning. How about we give wealthy? Pitched three innings, Martin I'm saying the second the second game. Right now, who have above them, do you want get three? Ayalon above buffing because if you I'm GonNa fucking murder, you got Mike we came. All right. Okay. Okay. You picked a good one. Okay. You actually answered that correct like well, mannered way. Asked at the last second you. talked to you this during this episode Oh, my King Okay. Cool, and you know. But you know that I'm nothing nothing fires me up more than a good exaggeration about a guy that not the about. I want you know that I'm trying to be the realistic, but this isn't even an exaggeration like I'm not saying, he's the best. Really patrol time, he might. He might be on his way under saying that he was really impressive and that right now, I would I think he's going to have a big did did any of you listening? You probably didn't, but I was on a laptop like four months legis scouring. Youtube. You, listen to Nick Nelson's post game press conference. By any chance. It is very funny. I don't know who the report it is. I gotta find out. A. So, congratulations, he gets the win to I. First Time. A Yankee. Made a debut got the, which is like twenty eleven, Hector. Y Z whatever. But the reporter was like I. Think he asked to out if there were fans allowed in the stands who would have been here to share this with you and you've been like my wife. My daughter by the way, pinned on his twitter as him finding out whose daughter, it's very nice. Video But my wife, my daughter, and like my parents whatever and my sister whatever. The reporter asked him for everyone's name and how to spell it. Every like Oh, what's what is your girlfriend's name and he has to spell it out. It's like Maria. Whatever. So weird spelling. What is your daughter's name abby and he goes how do you spell abby goes Api and then he asked what is your? What's your? What's what is your? What's your mom state? Every it was like the books was our press conference ever watch. He asked everyone everyone was families names. I was just like taking a look that this just pitched three innings of amazing baseball, the Yankees a spill out. It's like family trees name to this random reporter. Very I, don't know book I don't. Watch it. It's so funny. It's I. Don't know he was really taken aback by it. Because like he's going to treat the media, well, its debut. This is just what happens after every game. But he I think he spelled like six people's names during the press conference for this guy, it was this guy is like writing a book, the Nick. Nelson debut book. Or whatever, and he's GonNa like. Obsessed, the mkx Nelson that, us. It was weird. I'm going to find out who asked I didn't recognize the voice. It wasn't like anyone like hoke or or Klapisch, but it was very this guy was writing Nick Nelson's autobiography with without his permission. I don't know very weird but that's often Nick Nelson. And the David Hill comes in shuts door. It's just. is just like, Hey, red sox. You can try and win this game. We'll give you the best chance possible by throwing Luiz, albion, nick, Nelson, and David Halley for eight innings, seven innings, and you still could beat us you schmucks, and then we gave them the lead late, it's just a terrible team we talked to NOCCO Talk Montgomery. Friday though. Susan Waldman with the pipes. Singing the national anthem. Awesome moment. To, open up the stadium for the year and you get you hear this back story. Which I didn't know if I don't know. I. Don't know if this is public knowledge like for a while I. Don't know if it has but. Basically eight years ago, the Yankees are playing. The pirates isn't going to spring training game, and Garrett Cole was just having a conversation with Susan. Gear Kohl's obviously grew up Yankee. Fan. Waldman is and she's a legend of of just broadcasting all that and she's the she's the only the first and only female full-time baseball analyst, all baseball, which is. Very. Impressive, and kind of sad at the same time that does not more of that. But but Susan's a pioneer. But he was asking her how she got started and she said, Broadway, she was in musical theater for a long time and she basically told him. He would make the perfect. Yankee? And that if he ever signed when he's a free agent. She'll sing the national anthem forum well, Yankees Hope. He's how opener Gary Calls and the Yankees Susan Waldman sing the national anthem four, and then as she finishes Garrett Cole up to her and takes his hat off and like tips it to her and I was just like a puddle like that was so fucking cool, and like my heart was just like my heart's been so cold for months with like no sports all that. But I, just such a fucking awesome moment. So awesome. Awesome. Just Gary Calls the Best Person Alive for even acknowledging all that, and then Susan Waldman with the pipes absolutely crushing. It was just a great moment. Obviously, the Yankees went on to win the game. Yeah, just like a one of just such a great sports story, just such a wholesome like. Well, small world comes back. Just and the pipes on sued I. Mean. I always say John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. I think they're both hall of famous best broadcast booth around and I mean, Susan she can officially do everything. that. WE SAY VOICES SPIN On your percent I. The only thing that me was sterling wasn't there like, of course, sterling sick this weekend and could it be that up seeing that? Instead. They had like the he's like the Spanish. Announcer, right. This guy who's been doing. I was listening to a little bit of it. I was basically just watching TV all weekend but. As a little bit. It was weird. He's just. Like now Ryan Rupert I. Heard he was good. But I do it myself. But a tired after his debut had no chemistry with her whatsoever. But maybe the changed breakfast. Regime regimes. No. Rugged, some nail for the episode thing. Please don't do that. What was I gonNa say, Oh, we'll talk a little mets at this point. I. Mean. It's it was the story of the day and it's the most mets thing maybe of all time and I think KFC put a with there's been so many fans that come on the mets, but never has a player. On the mets just cancelled and. Yoann assessment is just doesn't show up to the stadium today on Sunday. For the game He basically just ops out and doesn't tell a soul takes his stuff and just leaves Atlanta just an unbelievably wild move and. Just Go so Matt's why. was everyone like. Everyone make sure he's okay. I. Don't I hate those people right away. Your first name should not be like he's dead. It's like what he probably just didn't like the fucking. Mets, would it was like every other jokes? It's like what I was not everything us. Yeah. It makes you so bad. Everyone's going to be the hero. It's like dude. It's the mets. Settlements has been known to do this. He's not like do I. Hope we'll ankles wrestling a bore some shit on his form. No, He fell off a horse whatever it was. Like. Regardless. No matter. What though the mets amaze me just like how do you put out a statement that we just don't know areas? You. Don't put just. To the mets and all that they can just lie. Stay silent until you have definitive answers, well, thanks I. Think they were trying to make him look bad i. think it was like, Oh, definitely. Definitely. That's why they did it. But in the process in a very way just really made themselves look just as. We don't know where are. Star or judge disappears from the Yankees. That's what it's like Oh shit. Something is wrong. If y'all want this disappears from like the most dysfunctional franchise, maybe in sports and he's like a lunatic to begin with I. Think we're pretty safe to say, he's okay. Just like a you everyone's GonNa. Be fucking hero on twitter like, Hey, relax. Okay. He's fine. He's like just fucking doesn't the mets thinking less Kinda, love it. KFC. Did have the perfect tweet about that? Specifically, it was like it is. So mess that player goes missing and it's either. He opted out or he was murdered and there's nothing in between like he's just that's it like the campy. Any other explanation? Like that's just the mets fans thinking is like he's dead like this is just this is the new mets here. We're GONNA out. Mets ourselves here and players dead as the mets thinking I don't blame them for leaving the mets stick wife. Why? I. Think, it's funny that he left, but I think it's a stupid decision when it's free agent at the end of the year. When you factor in that I thought he was going to stay and actually have like a pretty productive year being able to d h and knowing that he was going to get a new contract. He's right on track years like I, don't I don't get lie. He dipped out. Ship duty is like he doesn't like baseball. Did you see the four year totals? Well he got paid what was one time for the contract? One, hundred, ten, million is. Let me. Let, me find it exactly and there was. This is you're going to get for mets fans defending like that contract is that they're run in two thousand fifteen. was all worth it because like the. The production, he put that year and in the playoffs was all worth it and the rest of the that wasn't on the contract. Was it buying the contract before they traded for him in the middle of two, thousand, fifteen, he they he signed his deal before twenty seventy. So the here is from Jay on radio on twitter UN. Assessment is final totals of his four year, one, hundred, ten, million dollar deal from twenty, seventeen through twenty twenty. By the way, this was negotiated with Brody van wagon as his agent. In Four Years One hundred twenty seven games twenty, eight. homers seventy, five RBI. Gotti. Five RBI's in four years, twenty, eight home runs one, hundred, twenty, seven games. That's gotTA. Be The worst contra under the radar of the worst contracts in sports history. Holy Moly. Luckily. And the guy just left and didn't tell anyone on the team. You could tell the mets are clearly like they got a big camaraderie, they all they're all there for each other. If one, the players is leaving and not telling anyone else on the team that he's leaving by the way. About like the people were claiming Peter Lonzo is King of New York like two months. Now you know what they're doing though is they're going back and deleting tweets and or saying that they never said that meanwhile, these are the same people who could afford was better than judge, an actress didn't work I told people. This is a bad idea to do these guys last for fucking half a year. They have a good half, a year, Aaron judge. US anytime, he's healthy. He's just the best place. He's probably the best player in baseball when he's healthy, that's how good he is, and these guys think Peter. Lonzo. Thinks he's a polar bear and he and he just hits home runs and he's the best like get the fuck out of your get out honestly do no joke. Aaron judge the Second Best Player in baseball when he's healthy, no matter like not not much of a question. I know who else you put over him. Crowd Mookie, Mike? Trust one trucks, one like I'm not going to be dumb here. But. I think he's better the mood. The debate. Yeah and then you could say, yell, did you see by the way? How Bad Yelich? Now, he's off to a slow start. He was one I I twenty seven. Good and I don't know what the last two days in a bellinger, hit a home run. But he's off to a slow start to lot of slow starts Aaron judge just like I'm GonNa. Break. Barry Bonds Record and sixty games. So yeah. But Pete Pete looks really bad. Looks lost the Puerto Bench. It like I think he's hurting the team. That's how bad. He looks the lineup had when he he can't pick like people. People want to Luke, foot playing first base. Peel. Very below average first baseman from what I've seen like just doesn't. He's like also like super. He's not eloquent like when he's feeling Bali dives and he just looks terrible. I. Don't know he's a bad bishop. Funky Lonzo fucked fucked. That's that's just mean to. mean. What did he do? Oh. No. No. No. Not a great visual of me, but I don't care. Everyone's going to be looking at hubs. You look fine. I think I mean this is GonNa be. This is GonNa be the? I don't sweat much. That's just how hot it is in here. I don't like if you look at my chest, this is just from me wet my face. I have no sweat chest. It's crazy. Wondering. Is always the enhanced. Know. But I am still like I'm. Flat. Fuck you guys. Steady podcast game gotta respect that Oh well before I. Forget. We'll go back to baseball right after. Yeah. So I came home today to repackage. And, fucking. No note, no nothing. It's called daddy the. It's like a sperm soul wants. We'd be there baby Daddy. taught. What? Look at this thing do during. No. No. This is what it says. I'll Redo. It said like logging to Daddy skin free ads I. Mean. That's if you want the spoke nets. I. Don't think we have any other competitors. Sector like advertising on Barstool registered kit using nine digit code number to collect masturbate in the bottom of the cup, do not use lubricants.

Gave me great cultures though so that wasn't this good golf shoes. Okay. Okay. Great. Fantastic. She's Christ. Okay before voicemails. We should I. Mean. This is awesome. I just hope they keep baseball this because everything else is a lot scary and it really sucks because the Yankees take corona associated. Asli. And they've followed all the protocols to T- if not even further above and beyond, and you've got teams like a fucking Marlins who in Atlanta they? Basically I think they went to a strip club, right or something they went to. I think they went to the bars, whatever it was investigation don which is what caused Manfred to come out and say like, Hey, like I've just cancelled fucking season here have manfred comes out and says, I will I will cancel season was things get better than the next day he goes. I. Am not a quitter. I'm hero. We will keep playing baseball. It's like. It's like rob. No one asked you if you were cast. There were murmurs but like, oh, cancel cancel Everest, cancel it. But he just said the blue and the next thing he goes, you know what? No real keep playing baseball hero the best in the World Rob. Rob. So. For is Thomson, belly? Panders to whatever crowd he leaves. I. would be a hero for the people today, but the other table four, I'm GONNA catch. That's fair. Assessment I hate the move either. Tell your pay down your book. The worst in the GOP, gets voted I was commissioner. Honestly. Is like if there was like a comedy like a Sitcom about the baseball front office, that's how you'd right the? Commissioner, he's. He's just Michael Scott. Yeah. He's a Michael, Scott got the job of running baseball. How? He's kind of like white sox Dave like white socks. They get to the. It's like you know what I got. I got notified Dave about this. This is what take this serious someone. Else's like, well, don't quit. You know you're right. It's just like it takes anything probably DM's with by the way. Does she just not why talks games. When she went a bar with him, and he just wasn't watching white talk ships. Look away way it was a bad look for. Roy, like they're all upset. They're all happy that they'd beat the fucking. Royals get the fuck out of here. Yeah you? Ideally you go there for sweet. Why are you there? Oh to the casinos, right? No. No. I'm doing a documentary with Eddie. Oh that's more rational and expected usually documentary. Yeah. I'm doing documentary. It's GonNa. Be a while fucking scary. Is that all you can give us. A? Documentary on traps chimpanzee. And we went to fucking like we went to where was born. It's fucking scary. Whereas he, board, why is it? Wasn't. Do, it's literally like a lady's backyard who just has a bunch of cages with chimpanzees tiger, King of chimpanzees. Basically, she's CAL basketball. I like last week got loose and we're talking to deal with the gas. It's be a great documentary, but it is something. Is it done you have to? Just like Lil first story, 'cause anyone to Connecticut. Travis lived in Connecticut to. Wow, okay did not expect that to be the reason you went out to Chicago or the unbelievable because sports are happening, I gotta get to start going. On busiest fuck votes. That's fair I mean, this episode could be for nothing I. Mean we could wake up tomorrow and basically could just be naff rd could pull the plug but. Then, link that would be so funny. Manfred says gonNA pull the plug. Then he goes I'm not a quitter, and then he just pulls the plug that would be kind of like that kind of like how we're going to do this, but I really hope we don't wake up tomorrow like I know the cardinals have more cases today where like one more case fucking cardinals they were. They were doing bullshit to the two teams that are really that outbreaks. I. Guess You can call Carl's outbreak are the teams that have been fucking around taking. The should seriously all the other teams that twenty teams I'll taken everything. seriously. The poor phillies just hosted a game they got fucked. So like do tweets of like how it's like the cardinals are. Expecting. Bad News Mall. Oh i. didn't see that. No. Yes. I saw the like they're expecting more positive results that came out today that like. That's it. That's the same thing that I'm talking about. Yeah It's regardless what Kinda fucked. I don't know. Will. The positives. Here's a positive. Here's the positive phillies are back to playing. We're playing the phillies on Monday. Yankees are playing phillies and there's no more cases. That's great. The marlins also have no more new case. So they are I mean like it's bad and I think that's he. By the way I. Don't know what their lines are going to be moving forward. But they have eleven active people on the roster and the restaurants can be minor leaguers, random people that were traded them. So like I don't know that's not a bad. That's me bat like whoever playing forward the next couple of weeks. A. Train Wreck What if like I've a couple avenues here, the marlins back, the orioles per se a bad team that starts off good. What if they disinfect themselves with Kobe to like keep their games down their keep their winning percentage time they sneak in the playoffs. About the Orioles, they win enough games now like, okay. Let's get corona now. Yeah Yeah Did. You say, Orioles I'm sorry, Oh, you're saying the MARLINS. Marlins or like the Orioles up. Sorry. Yeah. I mean it's strategy. Also. This made me think of another thing is I'm afraid that I'm sure for the Red Sox late in the season, the red sox are gonNA. Go get infected on purpose and try to give to the Yankees or for the playoffs. Put that idea out and it's like the public war. GonNa lose you playing baseball. So I I, you know they took it away like in the next week I don't think I'd recover mentally. Why. But I agree. But I would rather than take it away next week then like mid-september. Not, after. This start. Seven and one dream. Star Aaron Judge Just on like this is unbelievable. Kalo hitting the baseball like cans pitching warnings coming better by mid-september. You'RE GONNA, be like fucking thirty three and nine and like at. We're going to be so close to the playoffs and to have it pulled from our feet that close than could be even worse. I. Truly like the worst version of myself would come out if they pull the plug like I I don't know where I would spiral to. It would be very bad I. If you pull this out for me after giving me a little taste. It'd be really bad by the way, the the Yankees over for wins. If you took that as long as they go sixty games, I, message heading. That's the easiest local seven. This point. Second Half Joke. Man. I don't WanNa. Think about it and I just hope that there's a little bit of hope they just keep playing. Just keep playing. Please want them to be safe and protocols need to be Allah dodgers were team that like. The. Dodgers up to proceed. You have to wear masks in the DUGOUT. No matter what, and then I believe if you're not. Pitching. You can't be in the dugout and at the pitching coach can't even be in the dugout when the offense is over, feel teachers can't even watch that which kind of makes no sense of you're in the Dugout for pitching and like you leaving the offense isn't going to like prevent much, but they're taking it very seriously. The all teams can do that. We're fucking masks hard where masks. You'll have to wear in the field. It's nice of you do you don't have to wear in the dugout. It's very hard to do that. So. I, don't know I'm just. I, just feel really sad if they pulled it Well, it's so while at the NHL. They're in the playoffs. That's legit playoff often, and it's Not Though it is like the Rangers was playoffs like there's other teams that are doing round robin the Rangers. Playoff Rangers. Get. In. Isn't. It. The Best of five series now, I know, but it's called a qualifying round. Right. I guess I guess to county it isn't, but it is kind of the playoffs. Yeah. You're right. That's. fucking twelve three tomorrow. That's can be bananas hockey doing that every, it's twelve thirty to thirty. Five. Like Monday, during the work day and it's just playoff hockey on. Fantastic but like. Like I'm not gonNA. Be Any like frame of mind that not the biggest ranger fan. But I, was I woke up like early for that game on Saturday. I was getting I was very excited for hockey on Saturday. For Rangers said granted, they look fucking dog shit hopefully e. I don't know the. US. Care about hockey bucket lundquist should be the goal nail terrible plant would grow. Mba, shout them fucking. Do it right? It looks amazing. Do an opening night couldn't have worked out better that Clippers Lakers game was fucking. Awesome. Awesome. and. Today did you watch Celtics Blazers? Damian Lillard dislike. And I don't know how to how they ever lose one single game. Those guys all hit all hit every shot. Crypt of betting. Let's think I'll wait. They have they Lillard Makola. Gary Trent. Seven three Nurkic just fully healthy and they just they still lost and they were getting blown out in the first fs crazy. We have all of it's really good. I. Wasn't really following I took the fucking Kingston. I. So did you right? That's I mean that's the worst team I think in the whole thing they're. Bad. There's so many guys that you remember in college. That was good lands. It's like. Buddy he'll listen even like good, right? No. He comes off the bench. Don't pay much shit. TON OF MONEY I. Don't get that. Okay. So we did that. Let's do voicemails granted habit run through these I. They were Kinda just going to pick on the fly here before we divorced knows we're talking about the barstools store the weather's getting warmer. As you can see me just dripping sweat here. The days are getting longer summers official here. The barstool sports tours filled with everything you need to enjoy the monster sunshine ahead is bright tied tied tease comfy. Classic tax revenue hats a face cover to make for styles and save summer. Go to store dot parcel sports, DOT COM to shop. Now, we've got our gear cultured out there. He managed to know I. Believe he's pitching on Tuesday if I remember correctly here. And I will probably forget once again. To. Put you on. Monday he's. Yeah. Pitching on Monday, and I'll probably wants to forget to promote are awesome. Garrett Cole Shirt because I get lost in the moment and watch Gary Pitch instead of doing that I'm going to try and set myself reminder, but it is a fire shirts pinned to my twitter. You WanNa, go buy it at stored up sports dot com. Okay. Let's do a few voicemails. Versed before we get the voicemail, did you see what Judd said during his post game press conference? What I could play the clip. Here you go. ooh like. When you're locked in. Not Locked in, yet I'm still trying to find that's that's the daily grind of baseball you know searching for that. You know. The locked in feeling. Like what the fuck is locked in judge look like talk. To. Dr During the interview with the piano, the fourth inning boone was, he's actually not. So to me, it's like it's not even judge being humble like maybe like actually isn't locked in. What is locked in? Every at Bat. He's GonNa hit a homeland such me three homers. A game is. Pretty. Much. To to run for bag game. Yeah, he gets furious to be a hallmark. Did it I see four at Baddeck grounded out is just terrible. Forget the five, hundred former in the first inning I. Mean, that's I. Mean That's just horrify I think there's a chance that every pitcher ops out on the morning after seeing Sunday night and I just don't want to face this guy like most opt out like for the day, they're supposed to face the Yankees. Then the next day like I'll back back is fine. Just getting. If you're a pitcher facing, Aaron Judge Moon Forward I. Don't the Philly's got I. Don't get anyone good like it's what Aaron Nola and a bunch of people who think they can pitch. So Vincent Alaska's fast that last of LASCO's face judge was in the exhibition game, it was trying to get an extra out. Work judges took deep go figure. You don't WanNa face. Aaron. Judge, right now I'm just I'm kidding I'm Giddy to wake up tomorrow. Not only. Do we get to see Garrett Cole? Pitch. Gets vilis. Aaron Judge Play Baseball, and that is a lot fun because that man I missed I missed watching this version of. Schwab, they cancel it after that I'll couch. Okay. Here's the first one. Up in November and. He's pulled out this stuff. Real quick turn on my mind. Tonight is how do I mean, the balls are absolutely just anybody that thinks that the N. B. would choose the balls to these viewers. Terms quarantine restart out of their mind. love to hear y'all takes. I would agree, but judges homers tonight. When like four, hundred, sixty feet each so. I also think a lot of it is like the hot weather like the season never starts in the site roll balls fly in the heat they fly in the summer more. So it may seem like, wow, the start to the season must be new, but it's kind of just like the middle of the regular season where there's probably more home runs being hit anyway. But I'm sure they're juice like they were like I'm sure they're equally as juices. They were last year, but you know starting in the Heat I. Think you know was another Lego I. Think it's a combination of everything because. Coming back trying to steal headlines in sports, sheet runs. Do that long home runs? Certainly do that? You know a judge homer tonight, it's going to going to steal probably sportscenter tonight despite the NBA Nhl feel people were talking about the judge homer in the eighth The long ball always plays sure they're gonNA juice runs, but should use the balls. But I mean judges get out whatever ball you're using. Aaron. Judge's swings tonight produce so. That Jerry Robinson's complaining about the commentary of the Yankee. Compared to the Red Sox home runs, that's when that's is. That We. SOCK fan. He said, this was absolutely fucking smoked, but felt like I was watching. Yes. Science ESPN booth having full blonde. Hair we go along. I have the perfect for that and that will be Joe Kelley. Let's find that real quick air we go and wait. Somebody. Did make a funny point when Vesco gene called the eighth inning home, run his mic like peak because I. Guess He's at home and like his home setup and they said, it sounded like he was in a xbox lobby in two, thousand, nine or something. I'll loud. That's Hilarious I. Love it though. Okay. What else? This is from Giancarlo Stanton Fan. Hey guys. Talk Show. Hey, guess Joe. From Rochester. New. York. Just one of them. Short. Colo.. Dolphins. He's really giving me a boner this year. Oh? My God. I think if he hits twenty home runs don't make. Myself Holy. Shit, this might be the year guys. This might be the year. All right, Mardi, we might see it the world series. Let's go guys Yankees all day. I'd Miss Love Picture in that guys. Do He went downstairs based? Handsomely does it. Pick a picture of looking in the mirror in the bathroom or something. Do. You think he did look at yourself in the mirror when you're saying that leaving that voice mail. How many? So. Yeah, it's one take. One take. I, one hundred, I think it's one hundred videos on his phone of that. I mean they can't be. The, you leave the voicemail, we get all the bad. voicemail. Keep Forget. Yeah. I, just totally. Misunderstood the. voicemails their. Kids do that. All Right Did he give a name? And from Rochester Johnson I do jingles from that guy all year. Every single one as much as. Just him saying he wants to Suction Carlos? Dixie. Yeah. Just professors love Okay. Well, we it's not the fall that will sell fellas John from. Queens. Crate weekend baseball. Great. When you know when Dj came up with Kaufman on base Andrews combing through time the game and I had no doubt in my mind judges shopping. At that you know I I. Think I think just sixty games finally got going probably the best thing you could probably have for this team. got. Our. Guys like judge, Stan even Gary. If he stamps out of it, you guys are these guys are when they get hot they, they get high it. Happens quick for quick fix the game sprint. I think this could be a really. Repeal or honorable sleep. Offensive team is seen the past few years come inky. Let's go Yankees. Red Sox Suck crosses a her I'm out. What a great call? Positive. Positive guy speaks only facts. and. Yeah. Hard to argue that this team is built for sixty games when they start the year seven, one like they have. We talked Gary, it is August and it's just like clockwork. He's just like a better hitter I, don't really get it. He was so bad in the first few games in the end of July, and then all of a sudden August, it's gets a hit right away as double tonight to seeing the ball better. Not Not going down to three pitches. I don't. It's a scary. It's just August Gary. Everyone everyone's style relax with. Gary. Edges, it'll be fine. Gardeners Lost Cost Gary. Sanchez will be totally fine. Now, there's the argument and we haven't talked, but Jewish shell tonight, jere show. It's just so much fun to watch play baseball. It's just such a good baseball player. All around. Like. The, or how does it? How does the Indians Jay's just like not get this? Understand that. He's an all-star. He's he. He has all star potential the way like there's never a fear in. Is there a doubt in your mind that he's GonNa? Miss play a ball third balls at the third vacuum. It's announced. They'll play. Is GonNa? Make me turn a triple play when you think it's possible and then tonight he has three hits just looks really comfortable at the plate. All the time hits the Grand Slam on Saturday or Friday Friday or Saturday, one of those. It just really baseball player and he's not a fluke at all. I'm really happy is not a fluke ensure. That was like a little bit of a doubt coming into this year like any do it again, and he just is. He's a good baseball player, very enjoyable, very enjoyable player to watch. And, he should probably be hitting over Gary, right, now I think moving forward. He's the hotter hitter at that. You just play the hotter hand that's told Gary gets really go Okay. Should we do one more voicemail? Let's get Outta here. Yeah. Sure I guys is John. From Long Island and I just had a random thought that I don't know be interesting question for you. Guys answer if there was one player in the league and you have to include everything, which is like contract than. Future break how they look to be in the future and everything one player in the League that you could take on the Yankees just like you just can just sign and or you just get magically who would it be for me I? Think it would be Walker beware and I know probably the obviously that your is like my child and all nor and I. Just. I don't know walkability. You get the contract and. Basically another ace for. Who knows how long but? I don't know I mean here. Would you guys got say the? Keeping good work. The answers, my drought. Let's talk him out more on. Let's take. Let's take ballinger trout yelling. Okay. Make It. A little harder would like new. York Yankees. I'll pay fucking Mike Trout. Seven, billion dollars of Monty. But. Take. That answer. No, it's not. I think based off the way. The team is you have to choose a pitcher because it only makes because I think they're totally fine with everything. They have won five like I want to nine, the the problem that would be the rotation viewpoint a problem. Viewers, certainly, not a bad option especially because he's so young and like he stole under control Just. The mets. I think the answer is the grow. When you consider the double, army of taking all those sewer rats have from them and just wiping it from them and giving them to the Yankees I. think it might be him. Pulling. The staffer, my head, and I think it's like in the remote of being like spot on I. Think he started like one hundred, forty games in his career degrom, and like eighty of them, he's allowed one run or less. So. That's the guy you probably want. Pitching for your team, but if you go cost effective, Walker Bueller. Question, it's not related to this. Do you think show bowers when you're like hunch and face? That I mostly, Trevor Bauer I think doing the McGregor Strut was a little crush. If, he struck me out and do the McGregor. I, would I would try lay him the fucking. Telling. What history between Nike showed them up on like a home run or some shit. It's the second time. He started the she like the way he walked up I'd fucking shoved my fuck and had I was gonNA. Say My hand up his ass. But that was the head of corporate. Stern sugar. was in hand black said, it was a bad was a terrible one. But no matter what I liked him I. I liked players speaking up, but he he's a little too much. Yeah. He's kind of an asshole. Sometimes who's a hitter? You think that would have a real problem with that. Luke wait. I don't. Work. With Rob beat the shit out of. The way tonight he was either going to strike out every time he was up like swing is already good or. Of A fucking missile, but he was on a mission to just hit the ball as hard as humanly possible until he actually he was sweet so far I usually I thought it was gonNA swing out of his shoes at one point. I have the answer for the hitter that would have the most problem who he got, Brian? McCann. I don't think he's even still in the league anymore, but he's the unofficial commissioner of of the unwritten rules baseball. He'd go out there and literally murderer him with a gun. Or a stern talking to him. Yeah. That's funny yeah. I'm looking at now. Yeah. The guy he struck out was like a complete nobody I. think this is like this random guy, the Tigers. Having like a problem like another cocky counter, Dude. I'm good with the motion of good with like I knocked. Christie's Mike Golic Stroman Shimmy I. Think is actually not babble like once you start. Theatrics fucking book and doing McGregor that's insane. Yeah, also that that was a seven double header. saw that it was seven innings that was weird i. assumed. It was rained I. saw he. No I. Let me. Let's. Let's make sure I. saw he. He pitched shutout and I went to look at his line, and it just said, no, yeah, both games went seven. Seven, it was seventy. Seven innings, Sean I. Mean Kohl's is going to have like a ton of those whenever he pitches and double headers Okay. That's the show. Aaron judge's US on another planet. Apparently, this isn't even peak judge I. don't even know what to expect going forward, but we've got the phillies coming up for what four and then the weekend the race. Race. Okay. Double header. All right. Oh, yeah. Right. So double is. Save eight games this week. Fuck. All, right? Well, let's with a with a fucking shorthanded bullpen. Oldest, isn't going to be back to probably the weekend. called. It says not hard. Just do it. So he he's done his service time. Everyone's done it. CALL HIM UP. I think you see question at this week. That's my prediction. I think congressman is a Yankee. In the major leagues this week. So we'll see. That's reports. We'll see back here on Thursday. I've later more things our. Okay, just. One.

Episode 214 - ALDS GAME 5 REACTION: The Yankees Lost. The Season is Over.

"Six. Time to. One. where? You're. Back. Just. Today. What's up? What's happening? Welcome to another edition of the short porch presented by Sports Miller lite not that long ago going out with friends was a little too complicated used to worry about where you go what you look like who you'd invite now getting together for a beer, your closest friends isn't so complicated in these days it actually feels more like it should. You can just be yourself with your friends and maybe that's the way it always should be, and as the original light Beer Maryland has always believed in this, and that's what time is all about the good times and the bad. Miller lite was with us all season long. We thank them. We appreciate them. It ends today the season is over. We were get into all of it, but you know we enjoyed ourselves similar lights to get through the pain of that that game and the stress, and it was nice to sit back and relax a little bit. have towards just cool down because I was not happy. But our friends at mineral I've always had are back great tation only on ninety six calories and three point two carbs however you and your friends are enjoying Miller time. You can have the original light beer delivered by going to Miller lite dot com forward slash port and find the delivery options near you as always folks celebrate responsibly Miller Brewing Company walking constant ninety six calories and three point two carbs per twelve ounces. Joined here the eulogy. The reactionary. You'll you're going to have a full one. Later this week or early next week. Monday Sunday. Yeah. But This season is over the Yankees, lose to the raise two to one. The offense was silent Garrett. Cole was magnificent, but you gotTA score score more than one that's the game. In fact, the race proved you have scored to. Sucks another year. Chapman. Just gives up the game winning home run. To. Decide fucking sick and tired of seeing the be honest with you There's GONNA be some changes with the team for sure there has to be. But. New Sees new New Year same season same fucking in the same fucking miserable ending. What's going on guys this sucks. Sucks S- another felt failure of a season. Valor of an organization which is high hopes. Just frustrating it's like. They weren't that good this year. We shouldn't have got our hopes up. But we were I know no, they wanted in the Paper they were very. Lineup to so the Yankee I've talked about the Yankees. What it comes down to is this underachieving with all the talent? I. Mean. That's what that's what it is paper talented underachieve. Ever you think about the last three or Shelat didn't did not hit fucking I mean a lot of people didn't come you know what's of knowing. The raise right raised what they did today glass now. Two innings everyone went like exactly how long they should. They didn't see the lineup twice it was like, wow, I kinda fucking makes sense and then we're fucking putting Chapman seventh-inning. To be honest we did not realize. How big a loss Tommy. Canley was going to be when he went down with Tommy John. But that was a guy pretty much all year long they had their bullpen problems most of the year and that was the guy where they really just couldn't replace him and that was the one thing cashman really had to go out and get was an archie Bradley Type Guy. He was available. They could have gone a few other people just just overspending go get a fucking middle reliever can get you out in the seventh inning when you've used guys like Chad green few days in a row and he doesn't have his best and you know instead of having to get like, I, guess the plan tonight was the fucking get seven outs from Chapman. Which is just wearing the analytics bullshit does it say to get seven out from your closer? Like that's not like that doesn't work. Does work especially pulling them after pulling Britain to go to him when you're facing a lefty. Yeah, there's no reason. He ends up getting. Waste of bullets. Hitches. Yeah. Yeah. And he had thrown last night now I mean he doesn't thrown before that for basically a week. But seven outs from close just isn't realistic like you just can't do that. You want you want to get seven outs from Nick Anderson. Type. Guy Or fairbanks whatever on the raise yeah. Those guys used to that. Chapman's on use the seven out a guy who's been blowing it every single year in the playoff. Yeah. That's back to back. It sucks but at the end, the day pitching was not the reason he lost his game shirt chapman goes up strong should get some Yankee fans. How can you blame Chapman because? Dave up the game winning home run and I get you know the offense should hit but chairman gets louder blaming but. The. Three hits they didn't have a threat after a voice struck out with two men on the sixth after that they literally didn't have one single threat. They're only offenses, judges, home run. had a feeling he was gonNA come through tonight. It's the big home on the them on the board. For a little bit you just I mean it was one nothing for a while and you're like they gotta get more than one. They just one run is not winning this game and cold it as best call hats off the Garrett Cole. It's going to be forgettable start for sure. But like that man, he's never pitched three days rest before and he had a fucking no-hitter coming and fucking. Willie. Cologne man. Oh Jeez. I Love Willie but. What was the tweet? It was That's week, which is like I. Know He has a no hitter going but I don't like what's about to happen. What do you mean? Yeah I know og Kohl's a no hitter gone pal feel good about this and incoming packing. Hashtag D. and then boom homerun. Not. Even. Meadows. And says thaw. One never gonna cut it but a coal pitches s off nine case five and a third, just the one hit. Two walks ninety four pitches and threes rest he was awesome. But. It's not good enough and it will be by the way you said. It's not a failure season until I don't know if you've seen quotes after the game I don't like real quick. Yes or it in the second before that. About, our friends buffalo wild, wings, the baseball season is over but football's. In stride here I think is I mean people playing on Tuesday Monday the moving games. That's you could just get buffalo wild wings everyday. Yes. Football everyday. Yeah. But Buffalo Wild Wings here. And if it isn't a wing Tuesday, who cares if it is buffalo wings now open for dining So come get buy one, get one free traditional wings served hot to your table or to go with takeout and delivery. Buy One get one free of. Of Value Free available at participating locations, size exclusions may apply not vowed with any other offer. Available Failed Dinan varies by location and delivery subject to availability and fees may apply. They've also got boneless. There's the I'm personally a boneless wings. Boneless Wings whenever I can always gonNA choose boneless over bone and Buffalo. Wings has that for you. Obviously sports you're back are fucking season's over there are still sports cooking. And there's no better place to watch and then the sports bar. So get to buffalo wild wings where the beer is called the wings come in twenty four sauces seasonings the stand the stand's empty hot wings, cold beer and the wall. TV. Buffalo calling please drink responsibly Ambu, said, this season isn't a failure and that's just fucking infuriating and maybe Those are the last words of him as the manager of the Yankees because. You thinking about radical changes could certainly see them moving off Mayor Boone. Hope so Yeah I officially hope. So I mean like I get you could say you can't blame all decisions on them because it's from the front office but. I don't like his mentality I think he's made bad decisions and ultimately he is the manager. So it has to somewhat come on him I don't like his mentality of our rather our. Bullshit. This wasn't a failure of a season. He's too inexperienced. Get get buck showalter in their get somebody like the Yankees were not that good this year. The during the right season, they disappointed I gave Aaron Boone a fucking longtime. He's not that bad and they just every little thing starting to Piss me off my fucking. He's calm I mean, let's not forget about game to changing everything. Now they had a ton of injuries but everyone's interests the reason, a ton of injuries. This year they battled through their pigeonhole pitching staff was basically hurt the whole year they battled through. So injuries aren't excuse. Yeah I mean they just try I don't know man I'm going to ramble here but no one came up big. It's. Like Aaron Judge yes and then DJ was offer fucking weird series from. Yeah Good Labor. Nothing. Void was very hard. On himself half game you said, I feel like I let my team down at a horrible five games against those guys I hate this feeling it sucks. It's the third year in a row going threat. At. least is from Lugovoi. He's GonNa Cowboy lawyer probably won't here you know he he talks he likes to he says he basically guaranteed to win but not really it was kind of taken out of context you're saying like, yeah, obviously we feel like we're GONNA win. And I'm sure like any Yankee Hater is going to take those and run with it but. That guy was Iraq all year long led the League in home runs led the fucking league in home runs and hit a big one in game four. Didn't come through in the sixth inning when it felt like there was a moment building there for Luke just get a base it and get that. He failed tonight Giancarlo failed tonight great postseason. But he left his bat on the shoulder like you said big it matter most. Shoulder looking for fastball failed this year everybody felt everybody felt G- Labor was pretty good. I guess but GIO went cold. This series makes the that it matter but makes uncharacteristic error. Everybody felt topped about the same thing every year they found the postseason because they have big home nothing nothing with boone that was just weird. It didn't end up affecting the game really but pinch hitting Ford for Hagey. Made. No sense whatsoever Ford at-bat I don't think since August the funny thing is that I liked. Pinch hitting forum they're kind of, but not for. Clint Frazier Yeah like I don't understand why you putting forward their I'm okay. With the pinch it would change something out but not for. Just like what are we? So Ford's last that he did he in the postseason. One. Someone someone sent me a to a okay. Yeah. He had two at bats. Total. So he had the one in Game Three Yeah. Then you're sending him in that spots doesn't make a lot of sense and then you're bringing Gary I feel like if you're going to bring in Gary You my his suppose just pinch Garin trying to get that swing that one swing the Homerun just run into a ball or whatever. But grade that didn't make a lot of sense. and. Then you're putting Garin but Yeah. I guess the one guy you can't blame frazier fucking ass off all your long. Yeah. I mean this you can't blame Dj he wasn't in the post season but these guys were they go rocks all year long they just didn't come through in the postseason and to be honest here I don't know what you change. What can you change? Say I WANNA whole organizational change not in terms of rebuilding but like philosophy strategy another starting pitcher like I'm tired of the analytics bullshit I'm ready to become a full on dinosaur rahm ready to be like Kansas city royals beat writer who's five years old screaming for the sack bond with you Don't want analyst at all done whatever analytic say that you should take out Debbie Garcia after one inning and bringing J hop who sucks abandoning Analytics is it just becomes a cop out right? Bad decision like well, the numbers told numbers. Yeah. This is just a cop out watch a game with your eyes makes. Neil after the game, can we get rid of some of the analytics and just play baseball? Thank you. Paul. Fat this. I feel like we said the same exact should after last season going crazy no I think we did. But you're right when you pitcher like Severino, we have no idea what the Fox everyone's GonNa be eight or reliever no. Also, when did I lose track of covert and everything? When did he have surgery savvy? Who knows I think it was like April. So you got hurt spring training you're not getting him until fucking. He'll probably come back next year like the way he came back last year. Let's see. When did he February so he didn't have surgery coverage so you're not getting him back until fucking midseason next year and that's if they play a full fucking also. Kobe. So. Yeah. I. Mean. They probably did you see Trevor Bowers tweet by the way Out. To Second Gear Kohl's Dick Basically and everyone's like, oh, trying to apologize to be trying to make whatever. No. Got To be, honest. Got It. I mean who would say? Think about it. Trevor. Will. I will lose my I mean I'll still maintain my on him. As pitcher and I'll still maintain my opinion of him off the field I will still hate. No you won't. No. You won't Tony plays a full season as a to Vr you will not hate him I, don't. Yankees. Aren't signing I think it's a moot point I think he's going to San regardless think he's are making a big splash this off season. I think their big splash there. I have to do before you even think anything is resigned each lemay here. What ever you have to do nothing right this whole season sucked make like at least. Okay. Don't let me don't let this season happened and also let me see Jamaica another uniform next year never mind like fucking mets or some is GonNa. Say You know Steve Cohen GonNa make slush to like you know. Someone needs to tell rawls chapman that not everyone's scared of his fastball anymore. I feel like he still thinks that like oh wait. Three. On in on the rays bullpen throws a hundred miles an hour and that at bat he kinda lost kept throwing fastballs kept going fast right down the middle and he's GonNa fucking get one homer gives up his right down the. He thinks that he could fuck and keep challenging level. All they're gonNA didn't even full swing if you look at it just kind of this. Narrow find the barrel to the ball. With all the fucking people the fact that this series years long like rivalry comes to a head with the raised tonight Brazil who got hit by or almost at by. Chapman. Take him deep thousand raise fan. I'd be like this is such course part of it. All it's over they want the raise one this rivalry battle. ANNIHILATES US this year eight out of ten. Win beating the postseason get the big kid off the guys that were battling day went the fucking Tampa Bay judge us a fucking handed us the wall. Head on the wall what's up with that? fucking. Hand. Is that built like the fifth game? Just fucking put your hand out. He could he? Not saying he could have caught US obviously very tough players just of tough luck. Yeah Guardia Mixed Up Gardy fucking robbed the Homerun here that cold. Out He basically looked away and asked for new ball and. We didn't. Put together innings we didn't even know rallies. We get the second twice this. Relaxed I, the only real chance they had was first and second. In the sixth struck out, which is like, yeah, you just have one opportunity for that. Rely on a home run somebody every time the raise did did a bullpen game executed it perfectly I hate sounding show defeated but like they fucked I, mean we have to know I'm saying like like kissing the raise Sr but like booking you fucking just pete us. Like the, you know they tried to play their games a little bit. Okay as we continue here. Want to talk to you is what served pro as well. There have been along with this podcast. All Year Long.

Want to win and go to the s now I will say the flipside. raz-raza raise I would thought it the needle the Yankees, don't more. Now Yeah, I. Did you see what they did the game on the New York New York? Yeah. Got Her state of mind cigars drinking all that. I mean that's just like when the red sox the Yankees I got tip my. It. Made sense because drudge pleaded like walking out of fenway Tampa Bay rays be original you minor league Bush. Yeah scumbag. A. Yeah. For sure I'm with you there This sucks I will say. The next Yankees World Series I. Want it to be from a fans. Like curry fix season fake season. I'm not. Let's start that narrative. It's sixty games guys. I don't. Sixteen teams make the playoffs in a bubble. No fans. That's all real season. Imagine hanging up ed or no I would never want you know. We all know that we all know it hasn't Asterix hundred. To be honest like all season, it was a worry of mine that the well not that it was worried but I just saw thanks winning the world series and US fighting red sock met fans about how how it was legitimate. I'm glad we don't have to do that. I. Would like to be in that. Literally the one positive that I'll give you. You're right. Could good positive. Yeah. Decision we fans next year. Outage. Twenty, twenty six Er. Fans that the dodgers braves. Yeah the annals CSI stolen understand how they're doing fans in the NFL not the I, mean the dodgers are going to. Wipe I said so I said this morning when like a few weeks ago I'm pulling like I said if the obviously the. World Series Porn for the Yankees but I want Clayton Kershaw ring at Guy Deserves fucking world series ring and also they the way they just dismantled. The PADRAS like they are a fucking what machine they're unbelievable. I. It looked like I was like really Maurice Phone, but I was just staring into the distance but I mean I was looking at, is the the most watchable series for Yankee family maybe ever? I, honestly don't want to. Raise Astros like I guess we have. We have for the you pull I. Pull for the raise and then you pray the dodgers, ship them, which they probably would I still think the fucking. Honestly. Like The raise. I want them to lose to the dodgers like hate them as much when they're not playing the Yankees if that makes any sense like the the beat to me like the beat, the Yankees like that rivalry is like over already I'm not over but you know what I mean like they won that chapter were like I don't want them to win the world series, but I hate Usta no matter what. Right. Yeah I don't get too much recess faction moving Flint Yankees are out the meat on debt inside nothing hurry more there. So like the race continue to win. Okay whatever. But if the Astros win lack just can't the world can't let that happen I. Really. Make the world series I don't think they're gonNA. Let me honestly it would be a good story line if it's astros dodgers and the doubters. Like final revenge, but that would be. Why do we want the fucking world series? Still. The ASHTROS lose if you're Yankee. Fan. This week you rooting for the rays it sucks it sucks to say because of this robbery and all that. But yeah, to watch although I'm definitely. GonNa Watch especially, the NBA's got to be over and it just and who knows what the NFL But. The dodgers win the whole whole thing. That's how you do it. That's the game plan move forward. This shoots trash pinstripes Dan. pinstripes off is the biggest `Nigma. In the war in fact, we made A, we made a pump video for him and then uses trucking. said. When he said don't worry guys game six tomorrow I wanted to put my head through the TV. It was funny. The only it was very funny I laughed the only guy we got short porch re tweets. Yeah.

Episode 211 - ALDS GAME 2 REACTION: One of the Worst Plans Ever + The Worst Umpiring Job In Baseball History

"Six. Time to. One. where? You're. Back. Just seventy seventy today. Ooh, what's up? What's happening? Welcome to another edition of the short? Porch present by Barstool, sports and our friends at Miller lite not that long ago going out with friends was a little too. Used to worry about where you go what you look like who you invite but now getting together for a beer with your closest friends isn't so complicated these days it actually feels more like it should. You just can't be yourself with your friends are you can. You can just be with your you can just be yourself with your friends. Maybe that's the way it should be as the original light Beer Miller lite has always believed in this, and that's what Miller time is all about Noah time is there for the good times and the bad times it's getting through the season it's getting us through all the good times and the. And what we just went through tonight I was having a few great tasting. Tasting, less filling middle lights to get me through CB buckner and Aaron Boone and J HAP-. Holy Fuck. This is going to be a frustrating episode but Miller lite is going to get us through his great taste only ninety six hours and three point guards. However, you and your friends are enjoying Miller time. You can have originally delivered by going to Miller lite dot com forward slash porch and find the delivery options near you as always folks celebrate responsibly Miller Brewing Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Ninety six calories and three point carbs for twelve ounces. Joined here, Noma, cast and crew in. Philadelphia Barstool. Gambling House. The Yankees tried to outsmart the raise and be the raised tonight with some gimmicky smart genius plan that just couldn't be dumber they out thought themselves. They go Debbie Garcia for one inning then Jay. fucking HAP and then we deal with C. Buckner and Gary Sanchez swinging missing they struck out eighteen times as a team and right now we've got a series of the best of three the rest of the way it's one one. Thank God. They won't game one what's going US Out Great Nope the bat like just bad night. All around Yep. So let's start with. Let's start with. With the decision. Table just. Said we didn't like it when it happened. So it was like it just because they have was we liked starting debbie game to. Shewn. Flashes of brilliance this year he's a rookie, but it's not the most pressure because there's no fans and shit in you're up one zero. See what Debbie's got. Any pigeon pitch. Great. In the first day we didn't pitch bad. I would have liked to see you know. Scrap through four, five, seven pitches. So that was the I guess the along the. But like you said. Do you think there's one fan on earth that watches the Yankees like every game or mostly games and saw Jay hat movement was like. Yep. This may this makes perfect sense. It's like who is like Holy Shit I just got tricked Jay Hopson again, we're fucked like my line is not good for Jay. Do any lot of they had wouldn't have mattered for J. Hap- like nine lefties in the lineup and especially like all right Debbie what I to outy got, and then he got he. A bit and I I mean He. Two strikes on on Arroz arena. WHO's fucking Mike. Trout that is ridiculous and he has a I mean listen it was a up fastball zone a little away wasn't the easiest pitch the head out it was just a good piece of heading there but. That he didn't look horrible. He was walk into macy's loaded and and stand hit the home run the next inning so is tied but boone was like Oh. We had a shortly sean him anyway we know you knew half was coming out second inning no matter what I think no matter what he's. He's one. Second. Don't say that you fucking don't like you didn't know it just makes no sense. It was one one. If let them go another inning and then bring them if you want to do that lead that's a short leash like a shortly not just because he give one run and it's tied up right now I don't get that. I just don't know what Hap- showed the season that boone was like. Oh, like this is a this is like the head and weapon like this, what we're going to do like his. Outrage with or just like he wasn't like he was, he was bad this year. Happens like right? Yeah. He's like the veterans put pitch into rookie but did start 'em like what the? And he was the most deceptively low. We already this year like I know we had a couple good start but. It. It was like look at J. Happy. You don't think this is a guy trust got hit hard a lot. You don't. You don't do this for J. Happy. Do It for like Garrett Cole Like if they did this did this. In game five well, I still wouldn't like it but like I could get you like, okay. One inning with Debbie and then here's coal fuck let's just go quickly. Don't love with Debbie. Let's go to Garrett Cole. James. Fits Kate. Not Garrett Cole pitcher than Jay Harry Not J. Hap. It, was I. Know People like Oh because I was saying blame boon. Boon doesn't have all the decision-making elephant offs evolve. But today he is the Matt like he's very involved in it up. Sure had input like he decides went to pull them officially. So blame him blame cashman blamed J. for sucking, but it was like. A terrible. Plant. Arable Heroin It was getting way to Q. as much. Said like the moment they bring happen it's like they probably sell the let's fucking. Russia the already metrics are not everything. Yeah. I also don't like when people are like don't blame boone it's like the it's the organs so. Never, mentioned any. There for us to blame, that's the coach's job is like it's his no matter what you're gonNA have to blame like hate that Shit I hate I just at the moment that move was made because right you stay in ties. And it's like Oh, okay. That's okay. We got some life year and all of a sudden it's out the way when you when just Jay has pitching and he just given up homer after homer and it's just such a momentum shifter. Yeah, and it gets to five one. No is that correct? Yeah. Five one. And it was just the momentum was gone. The momentum comes back when Giancarlo Stanton hits a fucking other homer, his third homeowners as many at bats which tied I believe Reggie Jackson, the Yankee Record This ball was this is like the one positive of the night this ball was it said four fifty, eight, I believe I believe. It might have been in yards. I. Mean this ball had to go and five fifty. I've never seen a ball hit like that especially in like Petco Park although the ball keeps flying a puck bark anywhere anytime Tommy thinks is a home and every time there's a fly ball do and it's almost kinda warranted because. The ball just keeps carrying every single time even off the end of the bat but John Carlos was blasted. He's so locked in five homers in the first four games the postseason. So you know this is like kind of this Miami Marlin stand when it's nice to see the bad part is that. Everyone else lineup was pretty much terrible today judge bad game. Dj until the last inning had horrible at that's. The most lost. They've ever plus they've ever seen him. Look bad tonight. With an offer Gary was terrible. Gary came up at so many spots and was just terrible. He can't. I don't know how he starts tomorrow. TJ By the way just semi Debbie Orsi. As quote after the game they explained to me that it was going to be a short outing. I'm really I feel really good and healthy I've got to see but I could probably be ready to pitch tomorrow Thursday Debbie Garcia looks like he's Sixteen He looks like he's in first grade in this church like he's. Crazy. Yeah Third Grade Picture. It looks like it's going to Catholic school, yeah wow. That's crazy but yeah, I mean. What more he said like yeah. Of course this was absolutely you said it's a plan. This was a thing. pull him. But Gary I mean, Gary you he had so many chances tonight to really like okay. We can't say a bad word about him. If he if he gets ahead here, it's a home run here and he just could not catch up too fast balls. The whole team shook up eighteen times eighteen fucking times Jesus Christ. And the shittiest part is obviously they score the five runs they hit. Glasgow. Like they hit him he they got him at five innings. You told me tonight going tonight five innings four runs from Glasgow. Now, we're winning this game probably if you told me, they were doing the Debbie Garcia j plan. I would have said otherwise sure. That would be the counter to that but I mean. Glasnost still was good. It wasn't bad at ten strikeouts. The St Sick even mushrooms like he's fun to watch even if. We thought it Sunday the the raise bullpens a problem. Yeah Nick. Anderson Nick Edison's he's. A. Great for one inning. He's got a couple of hundred on fairbanks. Look look though. Yeah. Scared like I think we'll be. I think he looks like a maniac. Crazy person but so take away. All J.. fucking umpires trash. We two innings first and second nobody out. Knowing got the third. That was the night, the night, and that's like the last game. If we put a ball what may scored the run in the nine oh whatever. Before that they had the same and they all struck. It was three strike as. Clint Gary. No that was like the six then. Chances when Anderson came in Easter three in a row. The. Who knows about? Bad and. Yeah Auto. Was Sleeping again I told her. It was so funny is there I didn't even notice. That's Today. Honestly. I thought they had. I thought it was destined to win this game when Clinton made that play and left and the winning where that ball is that still image of of Evan Mush, you guys are just like in dismay he literally had to pull like an Odell make catch. But I thought you make that play. It's like, okay we're GONNA win this game guests not the. LASAGNA. He should be better. Yeah his fastballs two straight. He I do feel like I said weirdly confident with them because his stuff always does look good but it's always in the zone. Always in his own, it gets teed off on. The one run but I'm John Holder. I. Guess Another Bright Spot probably pitch one of the best innings ever seen ever and in history bicknell Nick Nick. Nelson now, I mean the game is Ought to be Noah. was. Luck Great. Not Great. He gets out of the he does get the fly ball to get out of the initial inning and then it kind of goes to shit he gives up A. Garonne on a walk I don't know but. His bad just a terrible just. That's an infamous Yankee game. You'll look back at that game. Oh excuse. Series back and I came four ever forever ever forever and it will be on Aaron Boone's that's Aaron. Boone's like legacy with the Yankees, like this was one of the I mean listen sears so far from over its a three games here the one thing. The Guy who glare on twitter pulled out, put it this way like it's a three-game series right now it's basically wildcard series, right but Gary Cole and pitched the first two games. Against Tampa, Bay I mean having playoff Tanaka huge. He has to shuts crazy as this obviously loves to win the next two. But in a way I, wonder if it's a minor thing when one of the next two and we got Garrett Cole Game Five, which I know was on short rest but. He won't have a problem with you know. Think. He is pitching no matter what you know what I'm saying, right but even but eh th- flashbacks to last year Houston didn't use him in the world series and he was warming up and he would have been on short rest like he's he's like he's ready to go for game five. No doubt like to throw his fucking. I can looking five. I game for the worst part of a losing tonight is it guarantees a game four will happen which means the white sox. He's GonNa be here tomorrow which I don't really care too much about it. I mean, he's just if he says anything it's like your team's a fucking joke their homes definitely going to try to do the crop is troll. Yeah. He's GONNA tries best won't work I I actually I. Get a little like a set of. Keys bad luck to himself. He's come here. We'll probably twenty runs thing. He literally flew to New York City to do something for us and he got sent Tony Allowed in the building he flew to. Control the Yankees in that in the game where we fucked up and yeah and. So. This seems like a I'm almost a little I actually I don't even care and I know we're worried about Thursday. The bucks bear stream everybody's here. None of that gets in my head the game gets like. The game I have good tunnel this year the only way I mean. Everyone gets in your out during. The little gets you had. Cable. Cheering. Hours. Good luck I'm excited to have. GotTa was. Yeah. Yeah. So if he has no Thursday. It's bears. Bucks. So it's folds brady the rematch. So Dave will be here. Bay will be here everyone that lives in Chicago will be here like probably not even non bar people that that whole room that whole room with like they had their one TV and feel like they're all going to be in the room. It's absolute chaos people screaming left and right Stephen J. I I don't know how we're all GONNA fit frame. Body it's going to ridiculous image. People in the back. But This sucks at the series. It was never going to be listening to sweep would have been awesome. But like these are the raise and they are good team. So it just sucks for it to happen like this. But I also said this started broadcast. Could you imagine? If they had this plan. This is certainly a plan. This didn't happen. Could you imagine if they lost Game One? No pull this shit and they're down to. Actually kill. You can't you can't do that to someone. So now what happens game for? Debbie I guess with Montgomery. Ready to roll. And by the way we haven't touched on CB buckner yet. Somehow, we haven't talked about up like. I'm judge needs figured out. He's got to win. I, don't. But like today was like, that's he came up a lot of big situations over five three Shrek. He's getting a hundred during the post. Didn't we check out like eight, hundred, eighteen times? That's all. Dj and judge combined one for ten with five strikeouts. You're not GonNa Win Games when that's the case yeah. Those guys get set the table and if you WANNA combine gary some nine, one two we're looking at one for fourteen. Weightless drinks to avoid look loss. But I'M NOT GONNA was bad today. Clinton was bad that he does like the one that was nice. But I mean one play that he should have made should he ran a long way I will say. He did slip. She's Christ I turn you guys like maybe for Guardian for defensive one plant in the world but. CB buckner. Worst person on his job in the world yeah, he makes. A. Blackout his name what's the UPS name? Angel he makes his competent I mean I don't think he's ever had a game. This was crazy every ball high and away was a strike to both teams to live. Was it felt like it was worse against the Yankees to be but I felt it was that Gary Getting every pitch that Gary catch that he didn't catch in Atlanta other dugout and each call the strike but I mean that glacier three now. Walk Yeah he ended up walking but three one pitch was one of these in might have been the single worst officiated call and sports stir. Crazy it who's like not not even framed all that well, no Donald Awesome frame it's it's a foot outside and that shit someone says, it affects the rest of the batter they're like you. Well, we gotTA swing up because this is the clint. Frazier. This is the pitch that was called the strike, what the green for no. Yes are you sure know sure cy five Degrees below green green means ball. Spot but I mean, it's still it's still add. This, and almost that doesn't mean I wanNA see the size of the zone because that doesn't. It looked so much worse on TV. He that affects everything. If you bought that can being consistently called there which it was, but you just can't swim. It's a bad swing kid sweep at that pitch. It's so far outside and high. It's like come on. Man. Gary missed a fucking ton of those gary missed a ton of. Ma'am Bush pitches that he just needs to capitalize on who who, who do you think. I guess Tanakh is thrown into a well in the playoffs before. I go. I go Hegi Manhattan. Not, he he It's man he hits a wall like I was thinking like Oh. One one swing you know but I almost. More like about one swing at this point. I think you have to go hagi. Now the scariest part is I don't believe Hickey caught him all year. He cats isn't Gary usually Tanakh guys. Yes that's scary but. I think he can figure it out. If he could catch that cross Ono. No. We can't just figure it out. Well. I don't have faith and Gary I don't either but I know, I'd rather Tanaka be comfortable than having he fired killing. I'd be surprised. Let me confirm me too. I think they will go Gary Really You can't just change that off. He's an automatic outright now automatic. How could you I mean? No I guess, no, I mean I guess I refu- utter refusal I was surprised that they went with Clinton I mean I guess you never know but. By catcher Hagi, caught him one time six innings to runs. Sort of. Story Gary was seven Gary Seven Times thirty one innings four to six Sierra Kratz caught him twice once before. Kratz fucking. Better area to. Tanaka pitched three times. Let's pull up what he did against. Pretty good against stories this year just off the top of my head Good Friday night start at the trump i. think he had two good ones in one bed one. Let's see. Tampa five innings one hit five KS in trump. August. Seventh. Four innings six runs eight hits was bad that was at the stadium August eighteenth, and then once more six innings to run seven case at that I think might that negotiate? Game so so this precedent. That wasn't Ashoka game. You know who's looked. Gosh. Yoga. Knicks Yeah Yeah only got I only got enough strikeouts in it. Plus. B I. Canadian so that was a little disappointing. Lot of lot of good at bats, just fall off pitches and conversely singles he's can't get when he's got. Sanchez. Lemay he would draw one for fourteen hours by far the best at bats and the team he's gotten so much shit this year for like all that's the three hit whatever he's put. Every single bat is seems like it's a full count he's field in this position well. Yeah that's the guy I feel coveted right now go figure the postseason. I wasn't great either now said he lost. You have to wonder like if the foot is becoming an issue finally is not being able to play through it but whenever people start to doubt Luke. He tends to answer I'm not like. WORRIED ABOUT A. Much more worried about judge judges mural right now judge problem Dj of no worries with Stan. Get the guy up with the mental. Sends notarial. Yeah. How can you? Yes say word bounce one. Great. No one. No one. and. Yeah crazy just can't hit a single. Daughter refusal to single five home runs this five or five home runs. At Balls Fuck fucking smoked I. Wish I wish they want. So I could look at that more in a positive light but. I liked this quarter after the game to they asked him what felt like? How hold the record Reggie Jackson goes that sounds Nice. That's something you look at the season he's locked in now. So good for you Giancarlo but horrible one of the worst plans in the history of plans Aber in war life in sports just the worst plans ever fuck. CB buckner is a joke that guy should that guy should wake up and not have a job and I think it's I don't like saying guys should be fired that guy. He right. Ruko. Put it very very well on twitter. He goes him calling a three one pitcher strike is equivalent to me like cursing on there you just can. You just cannot do that just it's not like. Oh No. No No, you can't. Do. This shit Aaron Boone is lying in the Post Games for Mandy Martino Boone said, the plan was not to remove Garcia after one inning was an opener piggyback situation but he also made that quick decision based on what he saw from dougherty. Debbie was the strategy to bring them in early it wasn't predetermined Tehema w disputed. Martina said this was the exchange me just to make sure I understand answer before unique go into those knowing was going to be one for Debbie a little bit of feel out and see what stuff look like boon. Yeah exactly. Exactly. That's bullshit because half was warming up. After one batter which he got out has anyone ever in a playoff game fired their head coach and let a pitcher go 'cause I if that would have been all time move Aaron Boone just gets fire and half gets cut. And then HAP saying it isn't true on he would go in why the season opener I'll let Aaron talk about that. He's definitely pest that he didn't start the game I know. Yeah. What I'll give that to happen to like I know where shitting on him he wants like why would you? Know Sense. I know it's I'm not like giving them like a an out now but you still want to start to gain Wanna come in one one and second thing for no reason. Yeah I agree it's a little bit of a different mindset and I was saying this to during the Stream, like how secretive can you possibly be? How can you keep this all that under wraps because like a Guy I guess you can pitch under the tunnels and Shit Underneath the stadium I don't know what Petco Park built like but. It's pretty obvious feel like at some point. When they pant to him. My heart was like we were like water. He's bored and playing catch. The second batter is up nine pitches in one out. Don't need to do just pitched. Tanaka if you do this shit and thank God they want. Good Line. Good good silver lining up. Tonight. Didn't use any good relievers like the big three of green holder Chat Miller's Marianna. Chapman and Britain not used. So they could all pitch three straight games down down the street at Chapman has not been used. Yeah fucking Aaron, Boone Blewett you, Motherfucker CB, buckner this bullshit man had so much momentum. Why do you have to be cute what the trying out outraged the race play baseball how normal rotation? By the way they missed Tommy Canley. They continually like cashman not making a move at the deadline to get Tom Canley type lever to replace him. Could end up doing this team in hopefully not but they desperately need like a guy who's coming in instead win lasagna's coming in like that's. Spot, and he was so good in it and they are missing that show fucking badly let's let's take a positive. Okay. Give me some positive. The negative. We kind of expected to lose this game in a weird way was glass now. This way I know it's not this way the way the way it happened sucks, but we knew we need game one. We got game one call. Do you see Debbie glass now? It's like all right. You know what they can have that was. To knock it's Game three fucking to one, and then we have. Fourth Games of fucking tossup. I need playoff Masa. So I think he's he's pissed after that first bad star and he's no Hurricane San Diego herff pristine condition or several hurricanes would've splitters one twenty I like that my one twenty, seven tomorrow. Yeah it's seven Mar okay. Come I needed that line I didn't need it reverse I needed that long. Okay. Okay. Okay. Plath Tanaka I need a man to be magnificent I needed hair to be perfect. I mean that's literally split. The split in half I need a baseball to literally split in half I needed sinking into the ground. And then the bats will come alive and well keeping. You didn't win pinstripes. That's what they're talking about. The broadcast I would what are they going into spring training would wear spring training blue tops with fits strives. Satellite that says so weird I'd wear the pinstripes. I know we're not inky stadium. I would love from the where the spring training. Because it's A striped pants with the blue top. Their fire I love that I. Love that uniform. I'm want to wear the pinstripes I know same Nike Stadium, but you can't go home playoff without wearing the pinstripes like putting them on just different vibe. You feel like the home team you feel like the favorites put them on put on and you don't have a lump you. What's your life you need to get yourself fucking someone being me in the middle of the girl was hey. So Watch the group chat this morning the snap snap show on, and they were like look see a lump on your neck. And that freaked me out because that's understandable and I've been feeling around I looked at might even the lighting and I did look it was weird lightning in my hotel room which does explain it I center more pictures and videos that you didn't really see it. Okay. Does anyone else? fucking touching Karachi. Big Have Lumps now scary. Scary. Word teacher don't even joke. and Alex Taylor Arrow got one hundred hundred. Zero. That is the show positive going into tomorrow playoff. Tanaka, he's gotTa be playoffs Tanaka. Boone fuck this one. C.

Todd as five as go the Bosnian love these Aaron Boone the leader his first. The. He's. Speaks to the forest. The portrait ROY. What's up? What's happened? Welcome to another dishing of the short porch. I'm your host hubs along Sammy on the laptop Mike goes might come Padre, the colossus cloud. Tommy, smokes Thomas Kelly. What's happening? What's up just finished? My game of thrones rewatch today, some little depressed because that was taking up a lot of time for the past couple months. And now until baseball season really starts from you have spring training. But until regular season starts March madness. There's less stuff for me to do. Are you not like a fan of the vendors that? I am kind of like next Friday. I'm just prime behind. So I actually just finished watching guardians of the galaxy to the good, and I still have to watch Thor ragnarok, and then the last one of the best ones they made, and I'm gonna watch avengers. I still haven't seen the latest vendors Jesus. Well, there's your stuff. That's we gotta do. I mean. Yeah. Which is in in three seconds. We just saw what you have to do and what they're to be so bored. But yeah, I have not rewatch him. Thrones. Yet. I don't know if I'm going to probably do like the last couple of seasons especially the last season. But I'm do six and seven probably hell on drag Ellen. Did it take you couple of months, but I was watching my down and never seen it before. So I was watching it with him too. So I when I originally watched it on my own at you could knock out like a month three weeks. But gotcha. Yet. I went to Chelsea color concert Friday, my favorite artist. She's unbelievable stronger. Commence everybody does a few short porch people there, and that was kinda like wild because it's just a ninety percent like girls, then 'cause she's just a cheese big with like, you know, younger girls, whatever. But I love for music. So I was there. It was. It was awesome Jong in the Yankee news here Aaron Hicks. We're gonna leave a lot to talk about guys where we're gonna be here for a while all longtime, but Aaron EQ seven year seventy million dollar contracts that kinda came out of the blue. I mean, I'd I didn't expect when I show seven years a kind of like jumped and seventy million. I'm like, well, that's amazing ten years out ten ten million a year. I'll take that in a heartbeat. You don't I think the seven years is sort of misleading because if the extension was five year, seventy two million. I think everyone would be like, oh, yeah. Like, no one even bat ni- in would be fourteen million a year. I think people just see that seven. And they all scared, but it's almost better to have it seven and five because lowers the annual now, you've only, you know, ten or so million ear, so I mean, it's really good extension. It's a bargain for I think it's an investment more in what he can be a little bit. What he is. But also what he can be staying healthy. And being the player was the last couple seasons is really no reason to to not like it. Yeah. If if we know the Yankees weren't gonna get much out on Harper. But their plan was to add the people they did. But they're also being very very very smart locking up their own. That's then I'm pretty much all all board this this plan because Aaron Hicks of antacid baseball player when he's healthy. He played a career high hundred thirty seven games last year changed his diet going into that year. So there's no reason to believe he can't do that. Again. He is known for his like, you know, frequent muscle polls. He loves like pulling his inner coastal muscle. And like, I know whether it is, but he loves doing it. I thought there was a chance you just made that up. Yeah. Exac. Like when you see intercoastal. I don't have it in my body. But inter he's essentially a true five tool threat. He does everything there's nothing he doesn't do poorly. This also probably nothing. He does exceptionally a great fielder. But the he's not like superstar anything, but he's good at everything. He's a kind of five tool threat is that right, right? He saw that. That's what I was in good enough in in each five to get that nod. But he's not, you know, excellent at all of them. Yeah. But good guy having centerfield. You know, I always like how when there's a ball hit to him. He's camped under it, and he almost looked so bored out there when he catches it. He's almost like pissed off the ball in challenge more. He just stares up at the sky and kinda has his hand out. He's so casual with it. But he got the ball. Every time six weird routes, the balls as a canon for an arm at a career high twenty seven homers last year. Like, I said. Kind of games for the first time really ever. He only played like upwards of eighty or ninety before that. So it's a good good deal. I don't think there's any reason to hate on it because let's say you get four to five good years out of him. You you're like another, you know, three or two to three left wants ten million a year, you can eat, you know, get rid of him or trade and not that we want that we want all seven years to be great. But like, you know, there's always these poison pill contracts. They backload last couple years on some deals does nothing with this. This is just a good old fashioned good deal on both sides Hicks gets his longevity. I mean a couple years ago an extra trae for John Ryan Murphy. Now, the guy got a seven year seventy million dollar contract. He's ecstatic and the Yankees, you know, they're betting Cashman had a quote, and he said, I'm betting on you. He told Aaron Hicks based on you know, they they love his work ethic is played discipline is defensive ability for think, it was Lindsay Adler said she had a conversation with him like last year and. And it was all about because he's big on opiates and on bass percent. You know, Aaron hill hit three thirty four you. But I will say on on. I'm not expecting three thirty. I'd like him to hit forbid a higher than average. I'd like to flirt with two seventy. Maybe I'd even take two that's gonna be one thing. I want to harp on this year is higher average. I know on base percentage is important and a single or a walk as good as a single yada yada, yada. I know I sound like an old man yelling at a cloud. But I want their averages to be a little bit higher. And the reason is I look at the Red Sox from last season right in a bunch of guys that I mean putting the ball in play is big the royals contact from a few years ago. You put the ball in play you get hit. So. Yeah, you know, three seventy will be is really nice. But I'd love to see him get that average up a little bit to you know, to seventy or so right. I didn't realize he got MVP votes last year. He finished twenty second the MVP. He's starting probably was a agree. Average looks cool. It looks like a guys into for what? Ever like rather him into seventy five. But I mean, I'm local guy, and I look at three sixty six will be peace fantastic. I'll take you know, and it can get better three seventy two the year before that he's a percent of the conversation. I think it was Lindsay aller. And he told her that a strikeout is like the lease of like he base was indefens-. He was defending people striking out, then you'll have people shit on all junk, all stay right? But he's just like it's the heart most harmless out you can make because you can't get into play or any of that shit. So the least productive out you can obviously. So there's this too it. But she just said his approach to the game is super analytical. He's a big, you know, he's big research and numbers, and you know, he likes his VP highs. Oh, PS high and all that. So he's a good guy. Definitely got lockup KFC was Turpin. He was like, oh, the evil empire is now truly officially dead the sea stun in the dirt Machado Harper Vale when you get Aaron Hicks until he's thirty seven sues. It was just the most like. Uninformed tweet. I think I've ever seen on Twitter. I knew it to think he was very thing. He was trolling. But at the same time not play. I mean, this is I comment on those like you would die for a player like Aaron Hicks on the Mets. They have anyone like that. There was twenty years ago. The inky is locked up. A switch hitting center fielder to a seven year extension in Bernie Williams. And I think that you know, there you could draw similarities between their games patient hitters. Switch hitters, obviously. I come out. I think. Yeah. So definitely the right move. Yeah. Like, you said, maybe when he's thirty five or whatever you might not be worth it. But it's ten million dollars a year. So I look rice Harper would have been lovely. But you know, locking up our Knicks long as you stay healthy, really confident him. It is crazy thinking about twenty sixteen when he hit two seventeen. I mean, he was he was getting a level of. Hey, you know, he was in not quite Stephen drew territory, but he was up there with. How much people were hitting him. Also got hurt. He would get her to on top. Yeah. Who would have thought just a few? You know couple years later leadoff guy. People were elated with this contract. Yeah. We spent a lot of times I'll wrap it up real quick. But Charlie whisk. Oh, I think he's now Charlie freer, whatever the hell is last name is on Twitter. He had a very tweet so player a four hundred eighty at bats a four point seven war to forty eight batting average ninety ninety runs scored seventy seventy nine RBI's. I think we all that's Aaron Hicks player beat five hundred fifty at bats a one point three war to forty nine. Batting average one hundred three runs scored hundred RV is do you think that guy's spice Harper harbor. He's getting twenty million twenty five more million a year than those. I find those things interesting sometimes but same time, we all know, boys. Harper is with force. But I'm just saying like, yeah. Value. These daytime value real some other guys if you like war than Aaron Hicks is your guy like he's he's number. He was second in the last two years combined in war, Ben center, fielders, Mike, trout's, only only guy above him. Oh, sorry. He's third Tom. Tommy fans ahead of them at ten point one Hicks at eight point two trout, sixteen point seven will he's an alien account. Yes. So overall, the don't hate it all and if you get really analytical Devon Finks at Aaron Hicks would only need to be worth a seven point five were over the next seven seasons in order to pay off his contract. And I mean, it I just told you that he has a combined point to his last two years so easily do that in you know, season in the half for sure. So a big time deal we mentioned Harper. So we'll get into that real quick. I guess, you know, he side of the Phillies. Good for good for guys money weird. Contract. No outs. Thirteen years. No opt-outs in Philly. I don't a he said he wanted. I mean the way he described it was that. It's a statement that he's there forever. He's gonna fish career there any wants people come to him and know that he's not gonna ever opt out and leave. So from that standpoint lecture. But that's again, I mean thirteen years stuck in the same place. Vital Burt made a funny Joe he's like I would never agree to anything for thirteen years. I would never go be someone's friend for thirteen years. That's so long. And then some are Johnny Damon signed his he became a Yankee thirteen years ago. Johnny came Yankee thirteen years ago that is I'm surprised Philippine radio. But I'm surprised he. I'm surprised for both sides that it was thirteen years. Just yet. Because for Bryce I mean, if you go say, let's even to say Levin three thirty you're getting a higher annual value each year in your hitting free agency, two years younger. I mean, he would hit freight until like thirty seven down the road where he committee play for another couple years still make some more money to add onto that three. Maybe is earnings and three sixty three seventy and for the Phillies. I'm surprised, you know, they didn't they want. Also agree that out because I know the average annual value would be a bit higher. But you also are not paying thirty eight year old or whatever. But, you know, whatever for whatever reason they agreed thirteen three thirty obviously very similar Carlos Stanton's contract except for the opt out or lack thereof in Bryce Harper's case. I'm still surprised. I mean, if you look at the quotes after from Cashman Boris, basically, the keys were never on ever an for which I think is still crazy. I think three years from now. You know, Bryce Harper's winning the World Series in Philly and he's hitting forty five home runs a year. He's the clear face baseball winning MVP. The Yankees are gonna regret. I really do. I think that the fact that they didn't even seem to kick the tires and really do their due diligence. Right is shocking. And I do think they will regret it one day. And I'm upset just as a fan. I think would have been cool to have price Harper past six years. We've been talking about it. But I don't think he he loves Mickey Mantle you'll be and the fact that it is never even was sort of an option is bizarre to me. Yeah. It's if you told me couple years ago that I would fucking light you on fire. I mean, we have to deal with it that there's to move on. So like, I'm going to be content with what we got. I'm more than content. We got one hundred nineteen and improved whatever. But you're right. The fact that they didn't sit down with him is frustrating, especially when you like what if they what do you think if we made the dodgers offer because the dodgers apparently offered forty five million a year for four years. He'll get the Yankees offer that. The whole. I dunno feel any maybe I mean, I think he clearly wanted a long-term deal. So yeah, you never know exerting to look at him as like the girl the girl they never asked out. And you know, she went married some other guy. Maybe they'll regret at one day. Just gotta hope to grow got real gets really ugly. I guess is. Yeah, there's the miss at. The bottom line Gill. This guy's the best. He he was the guy who I mean, he he's wrong everything he does pull up how wrong he was. He he's the guy basically column ary decide who's gonna play football. And he he chew after Murray decided to play football on Twitter announced that Nightingale published an article saying how he's he's considering baseball again just so wrong about it. So now now Bob's back is electric. I'm just so I came when I came ARCO in on a baseball store, you know, it's legit. You know, it's like funny, and he's interested. He's obsessive about Nightingale because of me because Bobby I call Bobby lightning now. And so the morning Harper the more the Harper Harper nounce, like probably two o'clock, so at ten thirty seven the morning Nightingale publishes a story. Bryce, Harper's free agency reaches final stages, and the Phillies might no longer be favorites as dodgers make aggressive bit. So of. He did that. Then when Harper the deal get announce Nightingale tweets rice, hopper gets ten years three hundred thirty million with an opt-out believed after three years. He was just wrong about everything in that tweet everything besides you got three thirty nailed that. But the thirteen year deal, and there's no opt-out. So Bob is wrong about he's how does he trust his sources, I will say it's almost being wrong that much is almost really impressive as being right of that much. Right. You would think just typically speaking he'd he'd he'd get a few right here. And there that much is its own skill. It's like when you lose twenty bets in a row is like, right. It's like, yeah. It's like going to the roulette table in, you know, betting color in losing twenty times in a row or whatever. It's statistically is impressive is winning twenty. Unbelievable. The last part about a Harper interaction Gardner bird garner. When he heard about the deal. That's a long time. I won't still be playing for thirteen more years. I know that Greg bird goes Siri. Gardner goes. Yeah. Maybe two or three bird Dannatt. I don't know what burden actually believe that. I think he was pretty sure he was in on the joke. I know we date him. But I would think he's joking is weird probably thinks he's four thousand chances for the spoke of play forever. But fifty years Greg bird moving on. Now. We'll get more Yankee shed we hadn't Harper, and we could just we did one ignore it. But we have to talk about it. There's the battle going on in Tampa, Florida these days, I mean, you can throw like any giant war even been in. You know, like us versus Britain, the revolutionary war everything that they stack up with Greg bird versus Luke Floyd down in Tampa. I mean, it is back and forth. It is just a battle of tight spring. Training titans. I'm navarine, but every tweet got notifications tournament phone, no one day bird hits a dull bird has like four extra base hits. Look Voight responds with homerun answers back and forth back and forth. I don't even know if these you think they walk by other in the hallway. They just like is it awkward stare each other down or so I envision maybe knock something because hands whichever one like everyone's holding something I know. I mean, look, I'll just say this. I hope that whoever wins the job continues this pace when the game starts actually matter. I feel like that's not going to be the case. I I'm afraid that basically one person, you know, one person in the job be bad in the majors. The person that get sent the triple eight will tear up in the minors will then switch and they will switch back again or the person the majors goes cold person in the minors goes on hot streak could be all year flipping back and forth and just getting the cold streaks of the people in the majors. That's what I'm afraid of. I I I have a feeling I mean injury. What someone's going to get hurt? And then that will just clear the way. I don't train those two. Yeah. I have a feeling I've really bad feeling that's going to happen. So far now Greg were to six thirteen with three doubles. And three RBI's and one home run. Look Voight is three for ten with two runs in five RBI's both having good springs. No one's really made any bad place in the field from what I've seen. It's neck and neck. I mean, the the question we've got a lot of DM's about it. Do you think we can carry both because buono kinda like hold backings? Like, maybe there's a situation where you both these guys make the team. Yeah. I was thinking about this earlier. You know, initial thought was no. I still don't think that they should. But there is a way if I mean Giancarlo has to start playing left field. Right. If you do that it's possible because then you would have unnecessary. You don't need to do. Right. You have Stanton Hicks in judge in the outfield garner as your fourth outfielder than you know, you have to locally Rando har-. And then you could have. Bird and voi-, you know, one at first, and maybe one D H is some days garnered play any put you in Carlow in lefty have on the bench of role. Mine who and Gardner were the first basement that's not playing. So it is possible. I think it gives you a little less flexibility. I think carrying a guy like Tyler Wade over one of them is better for defensive purposes because he can play more positions. But from an offensive standpoint, if they're both hitting so hot than it is possible that you know, one place I based on the is most of the time. I will say I will hate Greg bird less if that's the case because I just my whole I just want Moog. Void the play and get a chance because I think he deserves it for the end of the year he had and he still hidden in the playoffs the mentality. He brings chip on the shoulder. He brings in how big of a workout horsey is. I just really want that guy getting shot in the reason I resent Burge because I feel he's gotten plenty of chances. That's what it comes down to nothing against the guy. I think he's gotten too many chances any really hasn't done much with it aside from you know, his twenty fifteen September and his twenty seventeen playoff run. They were all good other than that. Those two little pieces of his short short career. He's pretty much been hurt were a one hundred hitter. So I just want Luke Voight have his checks. I think it's fair. I think it's I think he's he's earned it. I think the organization thinks that I think everyone around him like some a lot. I just want my man to get a shot. If he if he gets. Shot and struggling not the same guy. Then we can fuck around Greg road again fine. But I won't move as my starting first baseman on opening day March twenty eighth because I think he just deserves it. I think the American dream. We're going like that that route he deserves it and we're going second chances will birds six kids. So I think. Just it's not really fair about the American dream. I just think Luke Florida's better like to see him be the first basement that works. But yes, we'll see there from pretty much there. Alternate anything every day who's who's playing who's not split squads in times of the play the same time. It's just a very interesting thing. We haven't had something like this in a while like a back and forth race with position battle. So it's we talk about basically like watching hard knocks. You know, like you they give relationship we have our own storylines, basically. So the most surprising thing in most entertaining thing uh, spring training, so far, and there's been a lot has been Troy to Lewinsky. Now, we got this guy. You know, basically the biggest high reward low risk. You can get you know, we're paying five hundred thousand dollars the league minimum loser. Paying twenty million dollars this year next em? We're just gonna see what he's got. He can fill in for D until dis back around August. Hopefully bar no setbacks and all this guy's in spring training and people people will be like, oh, you can so fired up. His returning will know, it was our cast at the start and now is really cool. 'cause dul he'll surgery very difficult. Come back from that. It's a very very serious injury. And he plays shortstop still it's very mobile position. And so far so good. I mean, the guy let me see let me find this quote. From Boone is I'm probably more excited about how. Well, he's moving in the field in attacking the ball just playing for easy. He looks really let it got there. People are basically yo piggybacking off that and saying just he looks vintage Tula. I mean, he hits the home run against the Bluejays. It seems like it was a year ago. And we talked about that because it happened on Monday. So it's been a full week since the Blue Jays run, but he goes off taco, and he's rounding first base. He stares into the Blue Jays dugout starts like fucking cursing them off. Let's fucking go and his head. He's you shouldn't have fucking cut me you sons of bitches east outta chip on a shoulder. He's co pet I fucking love it. I was I mean outlet save a little bit of passion for the regular season. Troy, but yeah, I mean, I can't knock him for that. I think the vibe I'm getting to Lewinsky is going to be one of those players. Matt Holliday Khanna comes to mind from two years ago where he has a hot start to the season. And then maybe starts to Taylor off a little bit with injuries or slump. But I think I'd probably take that dude. I'll be gives us some home run is like the right if he gets us in an awesome first couple of months of the season where not even vintage too low. But you know, Dr good production. He's immediately worth the contract. Yeah. I mean, it's five thousand dollars. It says. Yeah. Every this is almost like more than worth it. 'cause we got like a little store talking about from him. Like, that's that's almost enough in itself. So I hope to God he keeps it up. I hope he stays healthy. He looks finally, you know, like Boone said playing free and easy. That's what you want. He's he's a treat to watch a short when he makes when he charged the ball and throws out like cross body. It's it's beautiful. He throws the ball. Effortlessly the first not after it looks that putting a lot of effort. He throws. He use your all force. But it's just it's an absolute fucking missile the first base. And he's got good range still it appears and. Yeah, I mean, this is this is great news. And it'd be great to all the Red Sox. Our like, oh, he'll get hurt in three days in like are Willie might be right? But also if we could stick in some a little bit that'd be nice. If even better if he homers against the Blue Jays in the regular season. Because I did so corrobos quoted me forgot what he said something probably the O two. They have a thing on section town. Oh too low, bro. Too low. I don't know all the second ten people tweet at me fucking losers. But he quoted me something about to Lewis, he anti Tilleke. And who do you think like that tweet? Four Mark Roman former player former player. Yeah. We'll sue me. From the Blue Jays, right? He's not doesn't play baseball anymore. All he does. He's on a team. Oh, he's on. What's? I would give it away USA. Guess. I don't know. I was giving the team ever. Donaldson liked it. I was thinking him. So clearly, they're they're not, you know peas in pod, they they didn't really get. I he plays a lot of fire maybe rooms donelson those. I feel like they would like each other. But whatever, but what a jarred tweet to sink below bro. Now, something just like getting excited for spring training home runs or slow some like that. I I can't believe it was a couple of days ago little while final Twitter. But it was it was anti Lewinsky something about, you know, getting cypher screen transfer. Oh, how much he's a loser for, you know, getting fired up that's pretty gutter and Danzig like that looking Donald it'll be like the same way. Please riding fire out get that. But no big fan too, low, whatever it sounds like the plan is due. Glacier, LeMay who in him and rotate so that should take winter really should not be in the rotation. I we've talked to this. I agree. But that's that's what they're gonna do. Maybe there. Something what maybe you know, he's off one day a week or something? But not he should not be sitting once every three days, which I don't think you'll like it is going to be like that. It's gonna he's in. I feel like he's mailing me the second baseman. Yeah. I do too. And then what was that knows? Right. He's mainly shortstop and LeMay who might merely be the second basement and the tool is gonna play early. I think to start off it's going to be too low like nonstop at short, not not stop. But I don't know. Yeah. I don't know. Actually, it's tough to see it's predict right now. I mean, we're twenty five years away from opening day a lot like there's a very good chance. What would you put the odds that swear this with Ellsberg loss? But what would you the odds Tula doesn't get hurt in spring training? Hurt at all or her ex out for opening day. What are that? He's healthy. Come opening, right? Yeah. He is your is eighty five percent seventy five percents. He's healthy on opening day. Okay. Yeah. I'll take that. Take those outs. So that would be like a minus two hundred bet doesn't seem right. Oh. One thirty five closer even than have a big favourite seven percent. I dunno. He's tough. He's a tough injured history. I don't know. I we injuries confident. Maybe it's a gut feeling too. I am too. And I tweeted that I know I'm going to get hurt because I'm falling in love with him and FireEye final response. This grace is more for me. And then he was just like cut by July, and it was just deputy. Philip forgetting sucked in but what really size. I loved him. He was an awesome player. You like, I don't know. He killed the Yankees when he's including I didn't like them as a you know, I didn't like him because I was liked his game. He would make very very awesome plays in the he was constantly on web webcams. Speaking of injuries were run through milk with nothing. Crazy. Clint guy hit on the wrist today or hand we'll scary. He's completely fine. Those he said so that God, I knew it was fun. I saw posted a picture on Instagram with with tool, actually, I believe right. Like a little after. So I figured hey, you know, what he would if he was really upset and hurt he was probably post on Instagram Clinton. You wanna get us to low in the pod w Khanna's sick lease. Brett Gardner today. Very funny. Little thing very Gardner esque. Very state trooper Gardner, very hard. Oh gardner. Lindsey. Our tweets baseball such an odd sport garner reach base today on a hit by pitch after a curveball down five feet in front of the plate in bounce hit him in the wrist. He has a Mark from it, but declined to wrap it overnight. Is is care. That's hard Ogori sign of weakness. If you wrap it from injuries is that's classic garner. He's in midseason form ready. An Aaron Hicks has a stiff back. It sounds like just being very precautious, and they're not very concerned all and he'll be back to a few days he'll be back to normal. But you know, all your you will get Yankee sweater overreacting this seven year contract because he has a stiff back on March third. So they'll be those Suva people out there some highlights Aaron judge they had a lot of fucking. I was very hung over title at a very long night last night funding and. The eggs a lot of home hormones will cure high hangover help it because it seemed like every five minutes they were hitting a ball out gardener leads off of one Garnett today. Judge hit to his second one. They both opposite field. His second one went through a right, fielders gloves and just bounced over the steps it was hit. So fucking hard went through the glove. Grevy was mean, I was a as watching the first inning. And I was on, you know, you know, always like nice to see when the keys are putting out a cell lineup. I training game. Right. First two at bats. It's like homerun homers. Oh, I this is just great to say garnered his shot too. Yeah. In the Aaron judge said that in the dugout a garner was like bragging about his home, run or whatever. And then judge was like well going up is harder. And to bragging about his his shot outright field. Judge is going to have a monster season. I mean, he always does if he's healthy. But he is mad. I think still about being hurt last year. Are these going to put up twenty seventeen numbers? Yes. So I guess we can talk about now. He will. He did a New York Post, interview and shocking. He didn't do a partial sports. I mean, I thought for sure we'd have that scoop. But he didn't interview any said he does not regret the New York New York thing, which I love then we have to set. Yeah. I really like that. I don't know what like I people people to bring up my own comments when it happened back that, and you know, we all were like fuck it wishy didn't do that. But looking do that now, I wouldn't do it. I would do whatever single time. Tim saying he would still do it. He kind of has to say that. Oh, I do it again. But yeah, I can say I still wish you hadn't done that. But it's not like he's single the Red Sox out. He does that for every single time. They leave stadium every time. They get a win on getaway day on the road. He doesn't it's non-eu Red Sox. It's still it was such an oath sold under five facts. I just wish to your big on the butterfly if he doesn't do it. Maybe there attacks win the World Series. Maybe I I think the damage quote was way way more impactful than that. Damage is like they're fucking slogan all year long. I don't really rushed than the playoffs. Barsial probably try to make it seem like the speaker was a big deal. I don't think the players were affected by it. I think they were. No, I think the Red Sox you lot of the ankles are affected, but I think that Red Sox. He was very good. Like you mentioned with downs. They're very good at built aboard material loss in Boston. It's thrives in chip. They weren't know. Alex Cora wasn't ended up being like, well, you guys aren't does doubt at every getaway day where he plays. They're they're like. Fuck disrespecting us. So I are them up a little bit. I still think that you agree, though, the damage quote from Kashmir was way worse. Overall. Yeah. I mean at the time I think, but I mean to put that on their playoff what he's right. Yeah. So that's probably worse as show much worse. And then it let's four-game. I love the song New York, New York. And I hate that gave it to them for that hit them still ours were taken aback, even we don't even have to still are still gonna play it. It's nine oh anymore. No. I agree. It just it's in Amy coli think pretty much Aaron judge will never win another playoff game again. Because of that. It's just dumbest thing it's ridiculous. That's just a coli little thing. Thing. Oh, here's a. Just quote about the home run that it was hilarious. He said he was just really trying to dunk a ball over the second basements head. I was able to get the barrel on it. I was just trying to save those for the season. But I'll take them right now. I guess so he was just trying to hit a little bloop single. Right. And it just went out for home run. That's the mass. What happens when you're six seven two hundred eighty. That's that's what happens when you the power of Dodd and yell when else can match you fucking unbelievable. And we don't really I don't give a fuck every two months that he's like that's not a guy on spring training. Just just stay healthy. You know, has some I would I would sign up for him basically going for thirty than over spring training healthy for opening day. But then it starts storylines shit. I don't want that. Well, yeah. All right. Three for thirty. That's that did not make it any better. I just wanted to healthy is what I'm trying to say three hundred thirty is of one hundred batting average. It's bad. But I wanted healthy. 'cause I know it will be okay that. Yeah. I totally agree with sentiments though. For sure. Brett Gardner and judge agreed that the team's going to break their own home run record. I think they're going to shatter considering Giancarlo kinda had a lesser slippery in homers, but he can do more than that. And judgments, two months. Yeah, I feel like a Gary had such a disaster year gallery hit a fucking homerun today. I think off the bat of Erica yard upset miles per hour. Rated it three hundred miles an hour. I add that one central yet fizzle. But I think they're gonna shatter the record if they want they broke last year, given shatter it shatters tough. I think sixty seven home runs a lot, and you have to remember that e you know, games missed by drugs. Sanchez other guys are games. Played by replacement players. Don't have the same power books. Bill if they were still hitting some home runs Robinson while not just Jane Robinson. But you know, all the ball his face today. Gee, I mean, that's true. That's like Shane Robinson update. It was the most Shane Robinson thing of all time just square in his face. He's I agree that, you know, Gary should hit more home runs this year. Judge shouldn't moment this year, Carlo probably. But there is there could be regression in other air. I again, I just think two hundred six seven dollars is a lot. I think they'll be right around there again. But I'm not gonna confidently say they'll shatter it. I think they will. But that's whatever teacher on Danny Farquaad. We haven't really talked a lot about him. So I mean, I think you know, by now of but he it in twenty teen first month and season last year the guy collapsed in the dugout for he was on the White Sox. He claps in the dugout against the Astros. He lost consciousness. He was throwing up. He was taken to the ambulance. He had a brain hemorrhage which caused a ruptured brain aneurysm. I mean, you throw those words around and I get like like he he was at the point where in June when he threw out the first pitch for them that was a humongous deal. It was like he's walking. Again. He throw a pitch. Now's guys like back playing baseball, which is even more improbable. So yang. He's gave a minor league contract and he's wearing a special helmet slash hat. You know, it's weird protective thing. But the guy that got to do it and yet he pitched day he fucking rocks. But it's okay. Five runs. Got the loss zero one hundred thirty five it's fine. But he was quite he's from everything I've seen he's like the happiest men in the world. Like, he's just he's just seems to really love being a Yankee to being alive. I think. Yeah. Like, he just like a big fan of Bing live, which is good. That's fair. I like my players being happy there live. But his quote was obviously the results were in great. But I call good day. I've never been high fives so much giving five runs in my career. Just funny. But yeah, it's a good, you know, June. He's probably not totally. Oh, thank God. He's alive. It's like you stink like duty fucking game. No. He wasn't good pitcher like he's he's a tenth round pick back into dozen eight. He put fucking really good numbers the minor leagues. He has good stuff. I mean, obviously he had quite the setback. But the dude is these thirty two maybe you could give some stuff in the minors in crack, the big. I don't think he's going to be making the big league roster. I think it would be impossible on opening day. But who knows maybe I I think he'll he'll make an appearance in the Bronx. I mean, you think about the Skype shuttle often make shoveled pitcher out and shitty guiding five runs fine. But like assuming he can get back to his or get close to where he was before this. There's no reason he can he can pitch a little bit in the Bronx. So we're ruined for a show. There was a funny story with pretentious, right? You said it. I thought you brought it up in pre show, whatever. But you had you had put it on the up. I was just teeing you up to talk about the story. But well, you take it. Okay. You've lost your pillages, Danny Farquaad and Delon of roommates briefly AA Farquaad said he greeted Matanzas in Spanish, and then had a good conversation. It wasn't until an hour later Batanes revealed. He spoke perfect English. I like that that classic white guy. Trying to, you know, be let me embrace his culture. Try trying to not be racist than ends up being more racist than anything. Scars. This is like I I hope that when they finally broke. He I always first words in English were born in the fucking Bronx. Misconception with him. I think everyone thinks he's like a Dominican Republic guy is just born. Have you held in Kumar one time obey? I don't I seen some of those movies. I don't think. Fucking hilarious. You should see if you haven't. But there's a scene where? The Chinese guy so bad with names. Harold guys herald up so stupid. It's in the title Tara. It was weird. Herald is he's a American Chinese guy. And he's wanted for by the CIA FBI for whatever something you've seen the movie, but they're interviewing his parents as sitting down in like an interrogation like almost like Jack Bauer and twenty four situation, and they have an helmsmen from the hangover, and he's the tease the translator, and they just think Chinese people, and he's trying enunciate his words so slowly. And then try to translate it back to the FBI guy, and they just speak perfect English and goes on for like, two minutes. He just can't understand what they're said. He keeps saying like the dial the style at they've never seen before. I have no idea what they're saying. And they're speaking fluent English holes. I'm like, why won't you understand us? We are sonny's innocent. Like we. Darkens, and he's like, this is crazy shit. I've never before with daddy Farquaad. Yeah. Funny, sir. And then I found twenty dollars because I told the story terribly tell what what you've found twenty dollars. I say that when it's when I tell a story that's going on too long. It's bad story. You just you found twenty dollars to make it exciting. I don't think that makes any more exciting. Okay. Forget it. Tommy Canley haven't heard from him in a little bit of love to have him back from twenty seventeen form you striking everybody out. He had his spring training debut. He struck out. Everybody faced the struck out the side, which is good in my opinion. That's a good strategy. He was seen throwing ninety seven miles an hour. That's Tommy Canley. We know we don't wanna see ninety to Kaley. We'll see ninety seven gambling. So they said he was regularly ninety five ninety six ninety seven. I'm gonna put Tommy keenly as one of the most under the radar important Yankees. This year. Well, I did make sure bulletin that much better. Yeah. Right. But not like not even that. I mean, I think even the elite as the top five in the bullpen. You're right. You have to assume there there could be injuries, and you know, relievers sometimes go through cold streaks. And you know, the back end you still need you need as many good relievers as possible, and I think Tommy kingly he could return to twenty seventeen form. That'd be absolutely. I mean, they're both pay grade. Yeah. You can never have too many relief pitchers. Exactly. Because there is relief pitchers. I feel like it's rare to have them all clicking at the same time. I feel like even when you have the most elite bullpens usually one reliever that's going through a bit of a rut or something I put they're pretty prone to cold streaks. But you know, so the more you have the better, I think Tommy Kane -ly, let's forget the Incas gave up a. Pretty big package headlined by Blake Rutherford for him in Todd Frazier. But really a lot him Robertson. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Forgot Roberts Canley what cable. Kayla was a big piece in it was the big he was like they said like that we gave up the extra amount for Tenley. So he, you know, you wanna make that deal worth it. And I think he could have a big season for shaving without the red bull and coffee. She Chris I think drunkenly said last night that I'm gonna try to game. Once I'm not trying to six rebels into office nine his die. That's right. I mean, I'm not gonna survive that you didn't do it in three hours. Right. He would do it during throughout the right? But like it'll be like a strikeout challenge. But instead you like them die will action would actually would die. Six rebuilding your heart would be going. So yeah, you might die. What if it was six rebel Bacchus? So it's like not as much rebel. It was just out. Call. I think probably done that before not in three I've probably at one point three while like. Yeah. But you're thrown to coffees in the mix. And again, he's never tell me. A red bull cry. I don't know we did that don't be a while challenge. Like, a is the camera the whole time, my heart just exploded. We didn't really we didn't have his Neil Albert through today that guy has filthy slut and stuff. He throws curveball drops from the sky. We won't you know, this is a very very short topic. But Albert Ray will be awesome. Another arm to crack the relievers. He could also that's another name really not talking about that could be a big impact in the in. You know? Hope for him. You know, a starter to have there's no real role for him this year with that. He can I can see him being a like, the Domingo her mom of this year on you and your mind. I guess he's the first option. But I mean, you can never have enough starting pitching because the way people go down you have doubleheader games. And you know, I think that I would think Brady will probably make start for the year. Okay. That's just pretty solid prediction. We have a new segment on the show. It's not what we've been doing. But we haven't called anything. It's called is Jacoby ellsbury alive. If anyone wants to sponsored out there godspeed. I don't know if that's gonna be the best thing. I feel like that's just going to ruin your company if you do sponsor that segment, but he was once again seen reportedly is no video nothing. Nothing. Actual no evidence beside the tweet that he's running on flat ground. So we're, you know, it's it's news that professional athletes was running on flat ground. It's news. Over in a nutshell. I mean, this is all he's they're acting like he's Ryan shazier coming back four call right? Like, he got paralyzed or something. He's just very brittle and injury prone. He manning on flat. Ground should not be news Boone said that the keys will decide soon if he's ready to come to Tampa for baseball Timothy's. There's decide if you're gonna play is is is he a lot. I don't think. So what do you think the next the next elbow news is so they they a couple of days they're going to decide between a so she's gonna be I think it's gonna be Ellsberg shutout. Yeah. I think so too. I mean, let's put odds on it. Like, what's rank them? So let's go. Let's go. He'll what do you think? Odds are report like they said, he's good to go is coming back plus seven hundred. Yeah. That they're high maybe plus five hundred I'm thinking like coming back. What? No, let's say like they said he's report like that would be that would be. That's we like or plus four hundred. Okay. Plus four hundred how about. Had a setback shutdown will be no report following this like he's outed. Definitely that's gonna be minus two hundred probably and then. What else is there dead? They died. That's gonna be like plus three three hundred. I'd say plus twelve hundred but it's weird that it's listed weird enough that it's listed where it makes you double takes go. Maybe he's not not a part of the field. It's just it's all right. Yeah. The fact that they're offering this makes me wonder I am very excited for the next tweet. They're gonna come Orage, you think. Okay. So how about a new injury that he just something else? Happened is elbows shorts. Gotta be plus one fifty. Yeah. That might be the favorite. He's while running ellsbury encounter. The wind is. No longer run on flat ground. Such a pathetic person flat ground tweet L never get up. Never get enough of flat ground, teacher pro athletes. Love it. Okay. This is gonna piss me off the segment Colin coward. What's your opinion coward? You like him. Kana torn. I mean, he has this weird thing with barstool where he kind of doesn't acknowledge that we this. When I feel like it's tongue in cheek where he'll be like, oh, what are the names the bar hilt? I don't have. I don't hate him. I definitely don't hate them. I don't like listen to show or anything. I think he's intrigues may sometimes I mean, he's like every other talking headed ESPN Fox Sports world where they just say ridiculous things to try and people like me and Colin coward. Did it? Thanks a little better than than others. He's better than max Kellerman or somebody. Yeah. Like, a real person might pin? He's such a ridiculous even being the. Yeah. Cobb yet. I put out ahead of him. But yet Rana show. Call early early last week and. Coward cowed is big on football. Any Nelson basketball. He's not a baseball guy. I've never really heard him talk about baseball before just not this is a tough time for him. Mark madison's. You know, it's coming couple of weeks, but not here yet, the NBA's, you know, just in the second half of the year. Nothing crazy going on there. The NFL's dead is going on there. The draft isn't right now draft is in a little while. So he's gotta talk about baseball. So we had a are on a show. And there was McCollum already start. Eventually get the Yankees in. We'll play the Cup. Now. Do you read all about the Yankees lot of money? Aaron judge John Carlos STAN, it's a lot of Broadway. Do they have like you call it the the humanity? Do they have the guy that sacrifices like when I look at the Yankees. And I look at the Red Sox. I think the Red Sox have a perfect combination of grinders and David price and Mookie Betts rising star. Our star grinder to the Yankees have that everything's about balance. Right. And if I have Tom Brady, I can't bring in Dan Marino. Right. If I have magic I can't bring in Stockton. I need Kareem. Right. And you need a assets that complement each other exactly guild Yankees have that while I think it was interesting when you have judge and they bring in Stanton is almost like the same player. Exactly one is making over three hundred million dollars. Even though the Yankees only inherited only two hundred sixty million. You have a guy like Aaron judge who is just as good making half a million dollars. Right. I mean is on about capital allocation, and how do you deploy your capital and how to use your resources? You know, it's just like building a house, and if you have a five thousand square foot house, you can't have twelve garages. Right. And if you have it's all about complementary and what the Yankees that. So well for so long was having the complement to replay the comfortable with that. Yeah. They could have you in jeeter Bernie, but they had to have three starters. And I just I watched the Red Sox closer. Well. Yeah, they have to have a number three starter closer. But what I watched the Yankees the greatest Yankee teams that you were part of they always had complementary players. I thought Boston a great job with that last year. And I just don't know if the Yankees happening. I mean. One. What is Iran doing here? I love era, we will big with a number one era podcast. Besides the only one the one he has where you know, the Corp he's he's on. But we defend their of everything. But like, how do you just sit there and say like the Yankees don't have any complementary players we talking what is covered. It's almost like he has never isn't always on the roster. He's ever watched a game. I think I'd theory that I think he just only watch the playoff series in the AL DS. He just judging that the entire offseason was basically spent compiling complimentary player. Yeah. And also Aaron judge miss two months last year. Gary Sanchez of the worst year was life. San was. Okay. And they one hundred games. Well, wouldn't that imply the comforter players helped carry them that way about the two guys who finished in the top three of the rookie of the year voting Magellan gleyber Torres they've commented players who don't care about the spotlight. I think the definition of that what about gore? I think he's a pretty good player. Our Knicks air Knicks as pretty good Voight, the forgotten men. Yeah. I think that's a guy who doesn't give a shit about the spotlight. He just wants to play baseball. And he's a good player. I think points there. I mean, we can go down the list here. I just record. He said we only grinders which what the fuck is Brett Gardner, that's brick has made entire career to being a grinder. When you go into the dictionary next to grinder brick on his bald head pops up brick on beat the Indians into dozen seventeen the AL DS on thirteen pitch bet. I call. Is actually in in the dictionary. Video of that that is a dictionary. Like, we we talking about what do you mean? We don't have complementary players the tea we already have the most complimentary players. It was such a -rageous thing. I know it's meant to stir people up like me like we had eight road sit there. He works out with these. He's an employee. He's a special adviser as he could have body he could buried coward. They're buried listen. Eight got eight comedy players, just I'm sure has a good reason. He didn't wanna be disrespectful. He's era. Just a man respect. Okay. On his own show. I have no concerns about his loyalties. No, I'm not. I'm just a wish he he had an opportunity to destroy cower there. He couldn't any gaining out of respect. Okay. We we work with that since then, I guess. I don't know, man. It was just a announcement star people up in whatever. But I I didn't like that you one hundred games, you know. You know, it takes a full fucking Tina brick home run record. It's not just one guy can do at such. She hasn't actually should have been the biggest point of. I mean, the two hundred sixty seven home runs a nobody hit more than thirty eight. Right. Like statistically, we have to have other player that unto. Well. They like I think they're the team with the most players hit twenty or more home run say, I feel like I'm gonna I'm not an idiot here. Right. Nobody besides Carl even thirty right Hicks at twenty seven what judge finished with. I believe twenty seven as well. Okay. Yeah. Then. No, no ever. We had the most people in baseball. I think twenty seven. Yeah. What a stupid comment just we're Diculeng hoping. Crazy if I broke the home run record with no forty homerun hitters in one thirty home run hitter. And saint. It shows deep forgot who also morosi tweeted like in last decade. This is the deepest Yankee team have ever had like they are so fucking deep. So it's a little exciting to their are gonna bring everyone down here. Feeling good whatever. Louis Sessa has a real opportunity. Make the roster's Loman. Thoughts. Crazy. He's like we said he's the last guy we have to get out of our lives, and we can't get rid of him. He I thought there was no way he was going to be fun of our lives this year. I would have bet the house at the end of last season that he was gone in some former fashion through five innings at one point eight year of giving up just four hits and one run striking out six, and he'll he'll be he'll tear it up in spring training will be good in triple A. He's not a bad reliever. He's a terrible starter. Yeah. He, but he's not really a good relief. I mean, he's a starter. He's given you three and a third innings four hits three runs. Like that's the classic Louis Sesa start. I mean, could he be there maybe eleventh starter, sir? But I do not like the idea of him just having a role again whenever he's in the game is for two reasons. One were down fifteen nothing, and we just wanna get to tomorrow or two. It's the nineteen fitting, and we have used every single pitcher we have and it's a tie ballgame. He's pitching the hardy orders the only relationship she will be Sesa or it's a double header in the seven had a day off in like three weeks. Right. So whenever you see Sesa have the ball. It's exciting times. Nothing's good. Something really bad happening unless we're winning twenty nothing. We're trying to save. You know, there's no reason to toss anyone. But ninety percent of time says the ball, it's really bad news. Worst case scenario news. So I mean, I would rather any makes it worse usually. Oh, yeah. Yeah. In terms of like other options, what about Johnny lasagna? What about Michael king? I know kings rehabbing his injury. Now. I think he's gonna be okay. What about what about those? What about David Hale? I love David Hale. I'm David Hale guy. I don't know why. But air weirdly obsessed with Davis good any comes in these good, and they just send Japan when he's every like five shutout innings. They option down just goes Japan. But what David hills perfect for that? Why with the thing again, what is the what is the obsession? Louis us. Do not understand. I don't know that it's gone. It's almost like he's Greg bird like but worse what about gambling gambling on sesame start this year? I'll say that. He does make a start has to be. Yes. Minus one twenty five pretty close to pick him. I would even say minus two hired just because he's still got Johnny lasagna and he's Atta minor league options. So he has to stay here. Oh, oh, yeah. I'd much of that. Yeah. He basically gone gone forever on the team. So. While seventy five or close for him gone forever. So close to him just impacting baseball games again. So. Not good bring in spirits backup. Russell's. They're not sure if he's report. So that's great. I think probably because the whole he's involve a trades in trading. Rumors. I think that's the reasoning like he's a distraction of some sort in want the media with him. I'm actually just making that up. I really have no idea. But it's good news. I get away from this team. I like Russell Wilson. I said that I didn't mind when he came I lifted the spirits up. He's go away the next giants quarterback. But that's not gonna happen. Yeah. I think we talked about that. And you you don't think it's happening. So. Oh. Back next year. Yeah. Yeah. It's look I love Eli. But I mean, come on what you have four six six. I think they got a trade up and get Haskins yielding Hazan's will fall. No, I think who's take. No, collars, go between us. That someone's going to I think someone will trade up like try to jump the giants. I think collars, go one. I think caller go onto POWs gonna go one if his if all goes, well is pro. And I think the jets are gonna trade that pick because the raiders pick a four and the raiders wanna quarterback and everyone's gonna want to jump them to get southern a trip to the jets the jets to make out like bandits get huge load was interesting. I wonder if the giants jets would would you trade would deal. Yeah. Very interesting while that was football on this report. It's pretty good. We had lower selves will. No syndergaard. What was his Instagram? You freaked out will what was one he said to insufferable. I go off go up. Let me pull it off pulled on. So we talked about the the catch one. There's plenty of the fishing this looking for my trophy, but four days ago, he posted just a picture of himself with a hoodie on sunglasses and just goes I'll be back like we're quoting determinator twenty nineteen using like, oh, that's hilarious. I'll be back with like that. That's Noah Syndergaard comedy is. I'll be back. It's the it's the lowest orm of human comedy, maybe. And then today he posts a picture of him just like a Tim pitching. And it goes we want to bring home a title to DC dot dot dot, oops, dot dot, I'm in queens. Exclamation point. I mean, again, just very Noah Syndergaard to take the, you know, a popular joke going on right now with Bryce Harper fucked up yesterday. Well, maybe fuck up. He may have read our team Portland brush release. It may have been on purpose. Meaning that you know, we're gonna want road series. Rub. It back in DC face a White House. Visit us, oh, it's very possible that that was not a mistake. All but Syndergaard of courses inserts himself in it, and you know, tries to make joke painfully unfunny infringing Exo Syndergaard. That's no Syndergaard teak something that's either a twenty year old joke and be like, this is gonna be hilarious or take a current joke. Rennet that's the Noah Syndergaard print def-, you comment as Instagram's I've started to. I've only commented on I believe only commented on one I commented on the the no the Terminator said very funny Noah random, Terminator jokes are so relevant twenty nineteen. I. The search comments people. Isn't it weird? You can't do that. Like, I go, you're usually you. If you follow people they'll come at the top. I think usually right. But just in general, maybe I don't like I just wanna see with Tomsk belly. You know, comments villes should be less a little I don't know that seems like a no brainer on the line that, but there's a lot of features in Graham needs to incorporate as. Okay. Nothing. Really we hit a lot of shit. So let's go to some gems we're gonna do GM's permanently now on the short porch Instagram account, which I started after year after our creation of this podcast because I just don't have brain. I totally forgot to do that. So follow reports were the underscore short on his report is the short porch. Obviously short porch weren't available. So the underscore short on his four porch. You know, we're both running. We'll be on it as season goes on the it's a good way interact where you've got so we're doing DM's here. Getting we have that now to keep forgetting keep kinda we done anything with it so far. But yeah, that's a it's cool. So DM here is from Brandon Becker, assuming the Anki pursue another starting pitcher at the trade deadline who do you think the top through options would be that you would want. I'm gonna say Cougars definitely available. Bumgarner will be the probably the top name valuable. In the third. I think there is. I don't think this will happen. But I think people should there is an outside. I mean, we talked about I think last week that Houston Astros, only like what two starting pitchers and she's starting pitcher if the Astros end up being bed likely, but you don't happen. But if in some bizarre scenario, the Astros end up bed are not surprised if they shopped us Burland or because he he's going to be free agent after this year. So as Garrett Cole on chop him. But I don't think that's happening. But I'm just saying in some in some, you know, foreign world with the Astros things fall apart for them. Maybe Verlinden becomes available. They to restock the farms that's going to happen. But I was just looking at the twenty twenty eight on that. If we traded for Varinder, it would go to shit real quick like he would revert back to like aging, you know, mid thirties for lender. It wouldn't be what we wanna 'cause we missed out the last time we were in on him. We were intrigued, and we didn't do it. That would be. Faster. I guess third. Name the Blue Jays Stroman. Maybe I don't know. He's always interesting not necessarily someone I'd want. But I think it'd be available on that. It's always tough to like think like because it really depends on their performing. And you know, who's gonna Wheeler? Maybe I mean Zack Wheeler if the Mets give Lucas Duda. They wouldn't give us Achuar tell. Yeah. Fair fair. Not never happen. Trying to think of other team. It's tough annot. Like what teams are going to be sellers out like you hard to our? But why earlier? Mentioned engine this earlier the Aaron Hicks extension. I think almost guarantees Floreal is going to be moved for starting pitcher that is that is the under wall underlying themes that annoy messages that foil is definitely expendable this point. And the only the only way Floro gets moved is like Madison Bumgarner type guy like foil won't be in a little trade. It's a big red. We're getting a big guy if we give foils I mean, he's I'd love Corey kluber. But I mean Indians are going to. I mean, I think this wins are going to be good. But the Indians are things. I yeah. I think it says last August I really liked the twins to like sneak out of there with the title with the division title. I think like I think they're going to be good too. But it's like they're not gonna be so much better than the Indians were the are going to be selling at the deadline. Right. Right. Right. Yes. It's going to be a weird spot for the insta- decide to give up kluber 'cause the lead the right likely be in a good spot, the playoff give it one more. Shot with them Bumgarner. I think for sure is going to be dealt. This is this is the time this trade deadline. This year will be the time assume the giants I mean, they really didn't do much to improve in really do anything. So they're gonna be good again unless. But the tried right? The they sat down Harper. I thought there was a point like last week where I thought Harper was going to be giant. It's all things were going really well with them, but didn't work out. But definitely Bumgarner would be the top name. I'd want. He would be electric in New York on. I have no idea. How handle it like we? I think we've talked about this. How everyone be like Ghana club one night, and he just go hunting in central park. Yeah. He'd have to be told you can't just kill random. Badgley teams E like break. Nazzal kills a deer. And that's that's. Just being mad with can't candidate Michael Scanlon. What kind of contracts? Do you guys like Judd Sanchez? Every would have commanded on the free market this off season. How many years in dollars for each? It's tough to say judge. I mean a career. Yes. Like the Harper Machado signings. You'd think you know, what is judge gonna be worth? I would love them to lock him up like now. Yeah. Me too. If I think next off season, they'll really consider it when he's finally arbitration-eligible. Right. Right. Right. But he was a free agent. Three hundred more would he get more than Harper think? So. I mean the same age. So you'll remember that if he's better. Yeah. I mean, like people will still think Harper is. You know, they'll say he's been around more in another Harper deal was weird for the Phillies is because with the no opt-out thing. There's no I mean, they must think they must have. I mean, they're right that the come into the National League because Harper for thirteen years. No D H is like his knees are going to be shot at some point playing the outfield probably move to first base. But I feel like in the next three years. They are like when the when the strike that by the time. That's a problem. You'll have the. If there's five years, it'll be shocked university, definitely thirteen. So what would judge yet? Frisian right now you see the angels were like thinking of offering trout attend three fifty extension lift to better than that. If you know he's better than Harper has to get forty million a year. Let's trout Travers better than all of them right now. I'm just saying it's probably right around that. It's probably not that crazy. He's probably in that Machado. Harper rains envy. Ten for three hundred fifty million something like that. Gary Sanchez is an interesting one coming off a bad year. Almost what else would be smart. He's themes you believe they don't have faith in him because it would make so much the lock up right now or Gary betting on himself. He knows you be better. That'd be smart when Gary part to not do an extension now. But I think it would make sense for both after the season because Yankees want to be sure that he's gonna be alright and earned it and Gary to Nosal who got a nice bump if he does have a good season. Right, right. Yeah. You don't you? Don't wanna take the chance of Garrett gonna be actually this bad all the time. Now, you're stuck with a contract. He's right. But now, it's Severino. Interesting to he's a question, Mark. I'm able he I mean, he did it extended. But it's it's different. I mean, he was infant than if he hit the freed more, right? All right. So what according get Corbin got one forty right something like that. So right around that I would guess based off this probably some like some like how tough to say because no one hits the free agent market after two or three years in the major leagues. So that's why it's really tough to project, but it is imperative they lock judge and shin in not even get close to freeze eggs deal with that exiled another guy who's out there. They're so free in south there. Craig Kimble's, one of them prang is Red Sox. Then we're talking about Barnes. They're closer. So please give me that. But at the same like, I agree because it would make them worse. This year, not half him, but them DEM giving him a massive six year contract would be also hilarious would hurt him down the road. But there's more worried about this year, right? So Scott Graham, ask how much consideration to you put in the sun in kaikal? This point a doubt decent. Kyko is better than at least CC in at least one or two pitchers. Gonna go down Tessie out of the pen have Kyko in the five spot. Barry, very unlikely. I would say I like cockles game because he's a ground ball pitcher. And he's he kinda revamped his game. So he's gonna try. He's gonna age. Well, he's already up. He's up there in his thirties. But he's gonna be fine for two three years. Like he would survive in Yankee Stadium. I think he'd be okay. How much would give them? I give him a two year deal can get out of there with thirty million. Yeah. I think something similar hap-. Right thirty. I think we could. I mean, would you have? No, I don't think I mean, we're like automatically then, you know, soon. There's no injuries in spring training who's out of the rotation. Right. I mean, see see like I'm out of sleep. But I don't want that. But I think if they were more concerned with his heart. I think he's good now through us interest simulated game believe it was both simulated and all went well. I think if they were more concerned with his health than they would have pursued cycle they still coat he still out there. But I don't think it's as big of a deal. I do not see the happening. And the last one is from MAC Steinberg. We always he's got some good DM's that we think max timer glut. We probably have sent him assured at some point can you guys name a list of former Yankees that you were going to roof that you guys are rooting for some former Yankees that you don't want to do. Well, I'm putting on my list of players. I wanna play terrible and Fowler and Sheffield. I want to do. Well. Yeah. We've always said ruined a dozen Fowler. Chef obviously, you know came on the show. We definitely want him to do. Well, he had a pretty good spring training start. He looked very very good who don't want to do. Well, I don't know. Yeah. Means a met canot. So right. Yeah. Do one in the failed. August is been on spring training will begin just refund won't not for fun. But we took the Mets and in in midseason form. So they hit grand slam at tied to take the lead in six innings electric and they're down to in the night. They scored a run ready to cut the one and is a man on first and second one out ramble has the second baseman Raja. Davis has pinch running. He's he pitch it to he's running the second. And he goes the slides slides out of baseball. And so the throat the double play throw to end the game goes wild and the run scores title game. We were going nuts. They called interference in the game. End the date seven classic dislike. We're back the mobile. This is baseball betting. Go already canot and Justin Wilson 'cause they're both Matt's. He got killed Walsum. He looked terrible. I don't I I don't know. I'm I'm trying to think of former Yankees around the league drawing a blank. Yeah. Refer fowler. Swells is out there. I don't know getting think sunny great Andrew mccutchen short Sony guide. I want to do. Well. Yeah. I mean that will they'll be disaster. If he though if you went to sell young, very bad yet. But mccutchen for sure I'll always from cousin almost he's always on the Red Sox. But these are Phillies do well. I like Bryce Harper team Portnoy guy, and I always root against the Mets and the Phillies are good fucking team. That's divisions that divisions going to be David. Are you Dave Robertson Yemi ended? He ended terms weird with that whole dividing the locker room with the whole range, and so really him a little less and also kind of like they they chose to being over him. The right decision. But he did so much for us that like, I know you can't against Iraq. But from but not going to be, you know, giving up a home run gonna smile or not. Not I I'll do whatever if Sonny Greg is a grand slam probably gonna last like exactly what about Shane Robinson you run from. Yeah. I hope he becomes an MVP of funny of believable, she robs. Campbell you hid himself in the face. Like, not even like a glance. It was a line drive off his bat into his face. It was incredible. Sugarcane baby. He's electric sugar shape. Who else is there really trying to reliever probably missing someone super obvious, obviously. Oh, Todd Frazier met mountain. After Neil Walker will only Walker. Yeah. Where'd he end up? Why don't wanna say pirates? No. He was from the while. I was in Tampa Neil Walker which is also refer him no matter where on the Marlins. He's harmless. Yeah. From him becoming of the gopher stolen Castro. I was lying. I always refer them. I think I mistakenly said he's gonna have three thousand heads a couple years ago. He's on pace he was on pace for it star cash having three things wrong enough. Yeah. If it's a long Jebby stamp question. This point until you stay if he plays long. He's productive enough. Does do enough Curtis Granderson? She's applying. Yeah. Think is I regretted. He's on. That's are you sure you still playing. I'm almost certain he signed deal brewers. Oh, yeah. Over for. Yeah. That's the Marlins now he's others. Knows the Marlins right pup. The Marlins really aren't as the keys of south jeeter Passat a cow. We didn't talk about Pettit. Coming choosing the inky over the Marlins. I made a joke initially when they said that was like jeeter must be so mad. He actually did reach out and try to get some of. Gonna get Clements Matsui. He takes sue piss all we can't take Maddie's. He won't do it. He already like an adviser. He works out some of the guys. But yeah, pet having petted is great as paxton's going to paxton's the idol in the guy. He liked craft his game. After is Andy that so I think I think they talked the when he signed or before you sign. Sounds cool. Yeah. Paddock a gut had. We'll pick off everybody. The number one pick off. They're not opposed to it. Other news notes, we're down spring training. Sick. We've said this before but yet with their if you're down there to hit us up slotted it ever will will tell you where rats we can grab or something like that. But it will be down. There. Friday will get in their late Thursday night, very late. And then we're going to work fries or Sunday doing as much as we can player in of us, whatever, you know. I think I came up the idea we're have gopro with us. We'll do like some sort of four minute five minute video to recap it all I'm sure you're gonna try and get you driving on the highway. Now, we're not trying that rental car. You fucking nuts. People don't know Tommy's never driven on the highway. Do you want? Explain. I think that's really it. Will right? You're wise your fear of it. Yeah. Well, I'm not really could've driver. I get distracted easily. I think my ankle gets tired from down the gas pedal for too long. I've just never really needed to. So I've just never done on a highway in driver's, Ed. The day was supposed to learn it was snowing then just didn't and how old older. Twenty two unbelievable. If you down Tampa, head us up. We'll hang out it'd be awesome a few redone. That's that's cool. But dick fucking week pretty much not to like hype it up pride big as we have my. I mean, not you've done you've done some really cool ship, but I never down the drain before in like, we're working at now. So like probably big as weekend my life coming up like I'm pretty fucking. I'm very that just made me feel pressure. I mean, I just really haven't done much like this is very very cool. Fact, I'm working like we're going for training like not for fun. But I mean, it isn't like we're working. It's very very cool. So that's Showtime can't drive on the highway will about peer pressure. The problem work that. Okay. That's shelf.

Episode 78: The Games Have Begun

"The. Tied at five as go the Bosnian love this. Aaron Boone the leader his person. Out of the. These. The first double. Portrait roy? What's up? What's happening? Welcome tradition of the short porch. I'm your host alongside me on the other side of the laptop my co-host, my compadres. Tommy smokes, Tom Kelly. What's going on? It's up our. We're back. Baseball's back. It's back. The games have begun. We are rocking and rolling. I promised myself. I wouldn't overreact. That's that's out the door where we're aware weapon this team. This team's going to be incredible. We hurting everything every pitching left handed pitchers right handed pitcher in opposite field. We're in the center in left Yohannan over the fence minute before the fence, we're doing everything we're doing everything we need to do. They I mean, they took they took tabby raise the cleaner, and they want they won't eight five day. The Yankees are back. I mean, we I feel alive for the first time in months, it's not even like they want like actually who gives a shit, but dislike seeing games and like seeing tweets about players, and and what? Just I feel back. It does it feel. It is. This is true. New year misses the true new year. I think growing up I would always think that September was the true near when you go back to school. But I mean, that's not really the case anymore since fulltime jobs. Now, the new year is marked it is when baseball against right? Yeah. Quick apology to the pockets. We're gonna be all over the place that I I mean, I'm gonna say at the end the puck while like I'm sound like jittery freaking out ahead. A whole thing this weekend. It's aircrews while weekend, but we have show much fucking shit to talk about we're trying to list we could do this for three hours. And we might I mean who knows we're gonna see how this goes. But we all talk about first one got talk about Manny Machado with finally signed Padres three hundred million dollars ten years. He's got an that. After five years. He's got a semi no-trade clause. He's getting a lot of signing bonus. He got he's agent Lozano should get the biggest reason the world this guy came. Through. I mean, they waited they waited no one thought he didn't get his money. And then you know, we're talking about baseball's ruined. Because no one's the painting one and income the Padres three hundred million dollars ten years done deal. Unbelievable as USA for everybody and myself in ourselves included, you know, saying this is going to be, you know, says this off scene is a major black guy for baseball. Our to twenty-six generational superstars not getting paid as they deserve. What's taking so long? This can lead to a strike ideology. Well, Machado got in. Awesome. The I mean, the biggest free agent he'll ever history or Kia, right? And it's out right? Because of Giancarlo. But since he was technically in whatever in early on it. But yeah, I mean huge deal. Sort of the case way are you know, for the keys. I don't blame him for not going up to ten years through you know, that kind of money is right, especially for Charro. I would give that to Harper. But if Machado got that then Harper's probably going to be looking at like three fifty to three seventy range. So, you know, for the inky is I get it. I mean, he would have been nice to have for sure. But it's such an outrage. It's a such a large deal where I'm not mad and then for Machado. I know we wanted to be Yankee. But you know, you get to go live in San Diego for three hundred million dollars years. Not too bad of a deal for hundred million dollars. Not to better deal. Either couple things shocking shocking that Manny Machado chose to play in San Diego over the south side of Chicago shocking. Truly stunning that he thought who thought he wouldn't use the sixty to win White Sox who have no future whatsoever, contrary to what their fans will tell you shocking. He. I didn't choose to live there people like oh it beautiful summer Kogyo. A what a great place love. He wouldn't live there in the offseason. What's the weather like right now in Chicago because you're a month away from baseball in? It's like five degrees outside San Diego's courts. I mean is Louie p people are like, oh, no hubs. I hate that. But. Corrobos wannabes and whatever. But the go no hopes you missed out a Machado, buddy. I I mean, we accepted we weren't getting Machado about a month and a half ago. I mean like two weeks into the new year when he wouldn't hear thing. And there was no we were like, all right? We'll Don wearing lemonade who to Lewinsky like come on. This wasn't a shock at all. I mean, it was shocking that he went to the Padres. I mean, we didn't think they were you on the map like couple weeks ago. They kind of just came in last second. But. In terms of like, my disappointing my shocked. No, I I also, you know, I'm up in arms either. Because three hundred million is a number. I didn't wanna touch, you know, if the Yankees doing it and be like, okay, let's cook. But like, I'm totally content with not giving him three hundred million. Because my whole thing was when that first report can't with BUSTER only wear Lozano had to come out and deny it who knows what was gone with their where they said his only offer on the table was the White Sox seven years one seventy five. I that was that was where I was like they don't marry that and go to twenty whatever that's that's grounds for a strike or like a riot. You know, like we have to we have to do something about that. But the rumors are now that the number float around during the meeting was to thirty to twenty to thirty. That's fine. If they were willing to do that, then they did their job because that's at least we were. We were in the game playing the game. They just didn't want to do three dollars. I'm totally with that. I I'm very at peace with that. If he ended up going to the White Sox. Ox for like eight to forty eight to fifty that. I would have been meant because it could have definitely matched that or got close enough where he would have accepted it. But ten three hundred is you know, they weren't getting they weren't getting close enough to that. We're even if you were going to go to the argument that he would have taken a little bit less to be key, which I don't even think is necessarily true. But even if that is true, I don't think they would have got close enough to to make it worth it from Saudi to has a Robertson canal type field. I mean, other people have said that. But he got just took the biggest deal was offered Dona west coast. It'll probably just fade into oblivion. I mean, I think fights was on said he's like why didn't we see this coming million miles away? Like, obviously he's going to the Padres. Where he just doesn't give a fuck about winning and all that, and he gets to count his money, their whatever I will also say, I'm not mad at many at all at all you get offered three hundred million dollars to go play in San Diego for the next ten years. You do that every single time. Like, no. I mean, you know, maybe winning isn't the number one thing on his mind. And who knows to be honest because the Padres have the number one farm system baseball. Eric hosmer. They got the hedges guy. They have decent pitching. Like that division isn't crazy like they could very easily. They look Harper's go make the playoffs while he's there. I think. Yeah. There probably have at least one like one like funnier at least. But like. You like the White Sox have no future whatsoever. I think the Padres have a better future than the whites business shitty. But the White Sox to have somewhat of a future hoping Tommy John, you have no idea what he's going to be like, they're basically their whole franchise relies upon Eloi Jimenez to live up to the height because everyone out yeoman Cada absolute tragedy. He's one of the bigger busts like ever. They have a few other pieces. But like I mean, they're nowhere near competing nowhere near the pod. That could have MLB players on their team. That's the Padres could win like eighty seven games this year. Second wildcard. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, they won't do it. They'll never win a title never win a title in San Diego. But. Yeah. Just fuck. The White Sox. Fuck White Sox. Dave he's a little coward. Why? Why wouldn't you? It's been so long. We've talked about as to why wouldn't you just fucking chain yourself to that would have been ho-. Larry's. Radio. He his it was such an easy out to he could have just chained himself. So Sofres doesn't l White Sox. Dave is a borstal White Sox blogger said that if you think Dave porno getting arrested for Vail was bad. Well, if the or the NFL, whatever is bad way to see what happens I'm gonna chain myself to a statue outside the White Sox stadium. If Chicago doesn't sign Manny Machado while they do not Manny Machado in your fused to chain himself to the statue outside. But he never put a time chained himself there for five minutes, and is Don dummy, even if a cop came by and saw I'm be like, hey, man, can just like unchain yourself, and he was okay. I it's like it's like he just doesn't understand like what we're doing here. Like, it was just a it was eight honestly like him not doing that. Like confused the fuck out of my brain for the entire week. I'm still wondering why he didn't do it. It was just crazy. It's like, that's your you just joined barstool, and you're gonna you know that that's how your head waves. That's how you get on the map here. It's a big deal. And I I just like I compare it a little bit to my whole life dumps tour thing like, it's embarrassing and shit. But like it helped you in the helps in the long run like gained notoriety here, and you just go within you make you laugh at yourself. I don't know man, we're going to too much into it. But just it makes sense to me. It was where move but the end of the day. Fuck the White Sox and good for Manny Machado moving on Yankees baseball. You know, we're we're we like we're still hype Yankees your back, and we just didn't top of the key to the first fifteen minutes, but you know, the Machado Newsweek that has been legitimately atoll. Of discussion on the show for the last like three shows. So we had the. In terms of Yankees playing baseball. Our God his basically fan Ohs. Luke Voight hit a ball six hundred and fifty feet today. It was quite for. It was crazy. I mean, it was like Babe Ruth hit. It was the same e sells a hop. Couldn't be more back. He just got left center. I I got hard. I got erection from it. I was I was so I was on the way back from Syracuse on the train. And I I've practically like stop the train till I tell her what it happened. It was unbelievable Luke voice. Wean between him and Greg birthday because they're gonna have the most lethal force base combo baseball history. Greg birds gonna hit like gray hit three fifty. He's got the sweetest lefty swing since Don Mattingly that I've ever seen. Luke Floyd gonna hit forty five home runs their they're each only play like eighty one games. They're going to each put up monster numbers. I what are you doing? It's a to head to head some back on Greg bird. We are. We were pre game to go out on Saturday. And the hotel would say I said, I'm being relatively Sarka. I know I know what you're doing. But. We were pre game to go out on Saturday cues for the whole Duke game. We're going to bars and the. Yeah. We like really high high seats because it was like completely sold out. But. We're gonna talk at the end because there was a whole crazy fucking thing. And it self still recovered from. And so basically we're preaching to go out. And obviously the Yankees are playing one o'clock streamed. It unfortunate though, the yes network can cover him as Nessin. I kinda just muted care about listening to their broadcast but fucking obviously he comes up, and I go to periscope it his, and I was like I'm pretty drunk at this point. And I was actively rooting against them screamingly. A lot of heat on Yankees Twitter. I saw fear for one year tweets and a little bit. 'cause I I was upset that he hit a double. But like, it's. And I ended up retracting it because it is in hindsight. Like, we're not listen, I dislike Greg bird a lot. But I don't root against New York Yankees. Like, I want us to be the best. We can. So that was that was silly my part and up and totally retract. I'll totally back down. You'll see let me just finish the point. But I am rooting for the best of this team. If I root for the better things to happen and Luke voi- winning that job and not being interrupted by bird and bird going down. A AAA is the best for this team. I know that for fact, and we know the whole birth thing. We've I mean we've been hearing back and we've done that twenty five times as a carousel of ridiculousness. So I'm just saving everyone. I'm smarter than everyone else. I'm saving you all from that pain that we're going to suffer when he breaks his foot the end of April after hitting one fifty he can't see the ball because he can't hit a curveball. So I'm just saving us from that good for Greg birdie, hit a double off the wall. And then he had a single later. But whatever I don't want to root against him. But I am rooting for Luke voice. So by default, I'm rooting against redbird. I don't think that's a crazy thing to set. Well, and also if this was the regular season, you cannot root against. No, no, no, this is spring training. And like you said, it's probably we've been down this road before with Greg bird is a great spring training. And then he gets out of the gate sitting like one hundred and hurts his flood or something, and that's it. So you're not rooting against Greg. Burt yet rooting against the ANC. He's performance because obviously the wins and losses don't matter in March. Right. You're rooting against Greg bird having a good enough spring where dinky than fall forward and ends up costing the Ke's, right? Really for one. That actually Maddox comes out new. Yes me who I want to win the first base job. It's Luke voiding a landslide by default. I'm going to be rooting for route Luke void to win that job. But and that means I won't I don't want Greg bird to do as well as as Luke fly. And that's what comes out so on that retracting that soft. I just you know, I do and, you know credits for realizing that someone, you know, few people were crediting me for apologizing. So I like be a lot. But but go look Voight, he he's absolute machine. He. RBI single early in the game. And then home run I love everything about him. He had these quotes afterwards that are just fucking stuff that makes you which wanna drop whatever you're doing and run through the nearest wall. So this is boon on voi- Luke wants to be really good at this game. Like that. That's a good start think we all saw him kind of really fall. I think we all saw him really kind of fall in love with being a Yankee. And I think he went home on a mission to make sure he comes in prepared and wanting to show the world that he's the guy we saw last year. Then Luke void steps in my goal. This year's obviously to win a World Series. But to make my defense night and day. I wanna win a go glove. That's kind of my mindset more of more weight. I this is from Eric bowl. And he's a great volunteer. If you ever if you need a foul from a good source for Yankee stuff, I feel like everyone thinks last year was a fluke, but I'm not going to let anyone else control. What I think of myself, obviously, I'm going to do what I can get the job done empty the first. Basement of New York Nike's. I mean, come on. But he gets you just he says the right things he says the things that make people wanna run through walls. I think Aaron Boone really hit the nail at is that Luke Foyt there's all talk in. And there's no action. Luke Foyt was he's all talking all show. He talked last fall about how much he loved being Anke. How much it meant to him to wear the constraints and he had a hot hot month, or so, but there's a lot of guys that would have just you know, sort of been content with that. And then gone to the off season. We'll fat and happy came back. And then, you know, you're not the same player you are just sort of hot streak, but Luke void he tasted. What it was like that greatness of being Anki, and he made it his goal this off season to come back and make sure that he could continue that and keep wearing those pipes. Now, if you not work, you know, maybe the talent just isn't there? Now, it is there. He's the best. We'll see. But it's at least the the hard work that occasion. To you know, fourth to continue is definitely there. Yeah. He's he's the best player of ever see my life. I can say sacked after watching one spring training game. And last year. He's no fluke. I just love. It makes that quote from Boone. He he talks about like that. And he doesn't give fuck about bird. Like, there's no bird quote like that he voiced. Void is like head and shoulders the leader in the called house for this job nine close. I think that he has to read about in my opinion. Yeah. I know they know what's going on. Right. I mean, but there were talking club. I think in the front I think there's a part of the front office Cashman that really wants bird to win it because you know, bird has been there guy for I don't think so. And they want that lefty bat, I think that's the biggest thing is they want the left Yvette in. They give a fuck. I don't I don't think that's such a if it was they wouldn't have they would have gotten Murphy into the LeMay who they that was a big deal. They don't give think I think in their ideal world, though, it's it's bird dryers. Maybe it's just because the left Yvette and because the analytics backup not the analytics back of Voight not bird. No, I'm not saying I'm not saying who is gonna get it who's I'm just saying that if you're telling them who's gonna win the job. And who would they rather have be performing? I think they'd rather it be bird just because the left E bet. Okay. But I think the face. Eighth their faith right now is in void way. More for the. For the next the analytics in the mile per hour off the bat, they back up everything everything with him. No, I agree with that. But I'm just saying it's like if they could reverse it and have that expel. Expel K, saying it would okay. But those are unbelievable quotes not no one had a better quote though over the weekend, then Aaron Hicks. Did you see this one? Yeah. This is unbelievable. I like I just wanna go hug him and like him a high five and just go to war when going to fight with Aaron Hicks. Someone asked him how long did it take you? I think it was coli Harvey. They asked him I could be very wrong. Sorry coli if you're listening, but. He said how long did it take you to get over the ale? DS referring to the Red Sox taking us out four Hicks. I'm still not over it. I'm not over it until we win. I want to win a World Series. I'm tired of losing. We've come so close. But I'm tired of saying we came close. Let's fucking goal. Let's call. It gets that times when I was younger. I would have a pretend Yankee player in my head which was be myself, and those type of quotes I'd give those that, you know, the right ones were, you know, we don't wanna be you know, you can only what's the quote, I'm fucking come. So Florida come so far some shit like that. We're gonna come this far just to come this far. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Something like that. But yeah, I mean, you know, they they've seen it the past two years. They've been so close they've had that tastes. They watched the Red Sox win it. And they're not gonna sell for anything else. That's the way being near KiKi should be every year's World Series or bus that want to hear anything else. And I do like that seemingly me know Voy Hicks. I mean, it seems like everybody has come into the season with that mindset of what last year, Sherry one hundred games. But it sucked because we got knocked out by the Red Sox and watch them when the World Series and this year we're coming back with the goddamn vengeance. Yeah. I also like because they very easily could have said like, you know, we're not thinking about that which worried about our own. I liked that. They're tracking about it. I liked that. Last year was a disaster with quotes Cashman, you know, every whatever we said relating to that series and shit. Giancarlo. Whatever, you know, we want Boston all the backfire. That's a quote, that's like that's what we want. Those are the quote one out there. I wanna win World Series. I'm tired of losing. We've come. So close, but I'm tired of saying we came close. Like, let's I'm I have chills right now. If you don't show listening like throw water on your face. Let's figure this out because we got all be on the same page here. And we're coming for Boston. Like that. Is it almost makes me think that quote, I wish when I the video I made last week, which is the lesser pinned it to my Twitter, if you haven't seen it, but it's a little competition little ventures and game mixed with, you know, Yankee highlights instant amazingness. But I wish like that quote that he saying that could be overplayed that could be played over in that video because it says there's no audio right? I don't think so I didn't see I'm not sure I don't I wouldn't. I would either for everything. I haven't heard it though. We're seeing all the cool list, but Aaron Hicks big hopefully, having the pod soon. Say right now. So we're going on at Tampa. We can say that. But yeah, we're we're we're doing spring training dente Florida March eighth to March tenth if you're down there hit us up. We'll hang out. We'll we'll do it big. But we're doing it. We're trying to get as many we're trying to build as much contest. We can't down there short porch. So if you are down, Tampa, you know, hit us up whatever we're trying to do as many as we can got a few lined up right now. Hopefully, they don't they don't fall through. But which on a really pump shit out there. So I would love the Aaron Hixon there and just have them just say this quote forty times in a row. All right. The actual audio of it. Yes. That's a good idea actually Clough shit. We just we may have nobody else. Steal us idea. Yeah. They just keep yourself. He trust trust. Rethink just us. You guys. Moving on Clint Frazier. He's he looks great rip rip ripping hits left. And right. I mean, just that speed. I mean, we I tracked it on. My is I'm really good at this. I had four hundred miles an hour on his at four hundred. I mean, I mean not I mean it was over four today. But he did have the big hit yesterday. No taken count taking one for three on Saturday. Absolutely, scorched. A scorched the decimal these confers? We is the the lightning backs lightning that speed in line drives left and right. So that's great actually damn Clint after the job, they he said back. We're yeah. We're friends. We're all friends now he likes us. He never followed. You back though. Now, we're getting there. Never back. Yeah. No. I like how he's playing are get our status. Tyler wade. He's Pete Rose. He's he's he's actually the best player ever seen Tyler Wade. He's he is. I mean, there is I don't mean this as an insult to Tyler Wade. But there is some Greg bird to him where he has unbelievable spring trainings. Tears up AAA, but we sell to see him make that next step. Tyler read, I'm way, more pro-tolerance than amd, Greg bird. But I hope tolerate his great spring training. But I think we're at the point with him where a good spring training. That's great. But we need to see it in April. Yeah. I get that. He's best player. He's he's an eight hundred and two games today to doubles refuses to hit anything. But doubles. I respect a lot. It's a good strategy moving forward. It would be awesome. If he does this in a regular season. Awesome. Because he's he's our zobrist. I mean, we always say, but like he played fucking left field today. Tomorrow he'd be playing second base for all. We know. He's the fastest man alive. He's the most good-looking most handsome guy ever met. I haven't that most hands I've ever encountered through social media. Whatever seeing on TV he's breathtakingly gorgeous. And any hits baseball's in in March. And February anyone in the world. Tyler would Pete Rose. Yeah. He the keys I think want him to be on the team. He fast could be pinch-runner could be defensive replacement all over the field as long as he can. That's that's what's going to come down to. He is he going to be able to hit bigly pitching in the regular season. Yeah. He's so dangerous. Yeah. He is somebody that he could be me talk about under the radar potential keys to the Yankee season. He is somebody that is definitely at the top list. Definitely. He's going to be very close to making the feel. He's he's on the very he's on the bubble of the roster making the twenty twenty five man roster. Start the year. It's right. It's basically going to be him or bird. I think which well I thought it's been pretty much said that, you know, loser goes to AAA right? But some people disagree. But I yeah, I would think him bird is there anyone L Clint. So it's him burger clinic feel like one of them stays. I I was doing this the other day my head. So apparently, they are they're going to carry thirteen pitchers, which I think is a mistake. So that means that I don't know how these three spots are going to remind gets one of them. So you have you know, the four. I don't know somebody's gonna get screwed out somewhere way way. So I'm not good at math. So thirteen pitchers leaves us with twelve hitting spots right with three guys on the bench. So I put the runner in left because even Frazier garner is making the team for sure even Frazier out her honor. Honors on the team. So you have garner Hicks judge Stanton. That's four. Then you got Andrew Harr to Lewinsky Torres LeMay, Hugh Boyd flash birds. The winner of that first base job. Right. That's. Shit. Account somewhere for four that's eight. Gary is nine Austin role. Mine is ten four. That's I have eleven players listed the four outfielders garner Hicks. This is ridiculous. The four. Arnor Hicks judge STAN the five infielders put it as Voight LeMay who tore as Tula with key and do heart the two catchers Garrity enroll my that's eleven spots taken which means that they're only going to carry twelve hitters. I means only one spot open for either Frazier. Tyler Wade or potential backup first base in which I don't think they'll do because it will be. Yeah. Right. It could be freezer or weight or eating for spot, which is kind of you know, our onyx their best friends Dannon is fuck. Perry. Carry thirteen people thirteen headers twelve pitchers don't need eight guys in the bullpen. I think that's ridiculous fresh with how good the bullpen supposed to be. Yeah. And Tarpley has I mean that implies Tarpley's making team, right? Oh, yeah. Definitely helps us chances gives them another open spot while I mean, I feel he would be the guy you'll also have this weekend. David Hale, he's back from Japan this guy. I don't understand why he was cut when he was all this guy does is get people out and and shut teams out David Hill. So many what like four four inning long relief appearances where he doesn't get touched at all. He's he pitched. He threw two hundred thirty shut up. All let's see last year. He had was it last year the year before he was really good in my own. You know, what it was in the minors? Right. It wasn't in the majors. He had two five three era with the Yankees last year in ten innings three earned runs. He's a good like sixth sixth starter a good like emergency got. That's the I want him not Sesa this year as our emergency Slyke guy. I cannot believe Louise us still it's almost writting like the the really really ugly people from his team like the that. He will make us make our learning miserable and make me lose more hair everyday. But we says like still a kind of a king. He's gotta go. I don't get it. Apparently, the nice guy, but I don't know Shane round. This was a nice guy too. No, more LUSA. I I wanna cut my hair. Oh, gleyber Torres. He hit a ball. I mean talk about starting shit off like first inning Red Sox dead center bomb. I was very excited about that. Now, we just need to do something. I feel like everyone else has gotten involved Giancarlo. And judge applying for the first time Monday Paxton starting tomorrow, I believe and then Tanaka Tuesday believe how the correct so we're getting some whereas everybody playing and hey, nothing better you if you played it perfectly. You're listening to this as the games rolling around tomorrow, one o'clock for for training home. What do you care about more in spring training? Do you care like early spring training or really anytime spring training do care more about how hitters or pitchers look? Good question. Thank you. You're welcome. I don't give a fuck with Aaron judge looks like I know like I don't need Cholistan hitting like, I don't need that. There are certain people care. What Berg does carrot Voight does. But like in terms of start like, I don't care Severino. I actually well this year starting this year. I care about pitching war because I wanna see what next we're talking about. Oughta be no I wanna see what he looks like it's live hitting. I mean, he faced four Yankees in a sim game and struck everybody out, including tolerate who Strang Tyler weighed in February twice impossible is legitimately impossible. I mean, it's like facing Tony Gwynn. So the fact he got him twice. Liz like. Yep. Big time like ought to stay obviously, we care about Severino in the tipping pitches thing if you figure that out Phillip, he didn't it's very hard thing to just get rid of like involuntarily changing. How you throw a baseball like to home plate without even knowing like what you're doing wrong. I don't know how you do that. Have you changed that off season? Don't care about. Yeah. Don't care Tanaka care Paxton. But more Paxton, I don't wanna get hurt. So I kind actually packs on the mount like, I let's just throw a few baseballs have some fun and then call it. I can't more about pitching. I think for sure I'm more. I get more excited to see hitters. Just more exciting. But I care more and worry more about a pitcher has a bad spring. I'll be way more worried than if a hitter bats because hitters go through slumps is what it is you work through your swing? But a pitcher comes out and has a bad swing in their mechanics are off for their stuff is different. That would worry me way more than hither Tanaka, generally terrible. Yeah. He is really the like Tanaka. You know, he'll be you know, pretty good once the regular season rolls around spring training attainments like, let's just hope that ticking time bomb doesn't finally explode. We're still like sitting on that LOKI. People don't bring it up like his his arm is hang on the threat as just like threat. I will say about you know, what kind of makes sense because important threat, very important thread. I will say what it does make sense. He sucks so much in February March because out of everyone on our staff reliever starters. He's our biggest big time. Clutch pitcher, we have playoff game game season on the one you want him pitching. So he knows when the Tryon not try it. So it does makes he knows you fuck about this all three hormone say great. I'm gonna go golf. I don't even know if he golfs, but we'll see. That's a good question at the end of day probably pitching because I'm just so concerned about Severino is wanna see him figure it out. I'm more concerned my hand than anybody else. Moving on Aaron judge had a ball of the stadium in batting practice. Doesn't really like like a heater out of the complex not just the fence. Like, it just kept it might still be going. That was cool. That's all I need to see for judge. He could sit out. I don't speaking of funny. Quote, you see his one about what he learned last year. I don't know. If I did what he says. I was like what what is your? What was your biggest takeaway, or what did you learn twenty eighteen and he said to not get hit in the wrist great tragedy shadow to what the hell is the guy's name. Did it on the royals is with a J right jet. Yeah. Yeah. Fuck. Yeah. Joking in no J chip. Maybe Jay, you know, what he doesn't even desert you mentioned. But I do know he's he's basically Hiller. Rate. Once you said, I'm going to be like, oh, we have for months. Focuses guys name. What are you looking up to ninety? I typed Aaron judge hit on the wrist. I probably cooked on the wrong one. No, I may have clicked on article. I we're gonna move on is going to keep looking. So we don't bore the listeners here. Timbale Craig kimbrel decided that he's gonna sit out the year. If he doesn't get the six year hundred million dollar deal thoughts. Soup. What a moron. I mean. If he doesn't get Junius there. It is Jacob genus Eunice Junius fuck that guy. Jacob Tunis was at the game. Yeah. I saw him. I the best vision the world we were sitting third base side. And I could see into the dugout from like left field. Judge like go into the tunnel. Like out of I ball's. And that's where we the visual the whole into the Canelo. As big night. What some news outlet Colmey like took me dead seriously about the candlelight vigil whose whole funniest thing. I've ever been a part of why why SM y took my quotes like dead seriously. It was great. It was almost an onion article. What we talked Craig Kimball. Six years hundred million you want great, good luck with that man. If he doesn't it's like, oh, yeah. I'm not worth six years hundred million this off season. Well, if I just don't play baseball for year, then I'll then I'll show mental really worth that much money a year older, they're year older, just rusty. I mean, I I get being frustrated to a degree. I mean, you know, Machado got his money. Harper looks like he's going to get his money. Maybe from the keys. Let's still hold out a little bit of hope there seems like he's pretty much definitely going to Phillies. Right. But they're still Dallas Heikal is unsigned Marlin Consol. You see that the Morgan's Allsteel food twins two years twenty million. That's nothing. I would have loved anxious to scoop him up or something like that. So there are still some of those veteran guys out there who are unsigned and who do have a right to have a little bit of a gripe because they've sort of been held up by the slow moving Machado at Harper market. I will say. I don't sleep on the twins this year. I was talking to morning mush about this. I a future on them when the central they had also the ad. I'm looking up now. It some good decent beam coming into twenty nineteen four. I think it might have been two or three years ago. They were my hot hot sleeper picks like navy or the World Series. They did not. But they have match hepler. Lucas duda. Minute didn't make the playoffs two years ago. The beat them, right? Who else did they get par? Buxton's been on L Nelson Cruz right Nelson Cruz who low key as the most home runs in baseball. It's like five years. We'll talk about that on marching Perez. He's like shooting. They ask these pieces. They can be scrappy. I don't know. I don't see my twins and my find their future. I never future before it might take it moving on. Did you see what Stevens? Hey, Steven to this week. I mean, it's crazy. Did you see the little segment? I did I'm drawing a blank don't tell me. What is something CC Sobat thea? Yeah. I saw you blocked it. We'll play on. I can't remember let's play right now for everybody listening. Keep CC Sobat. A crunch berries not off of it on it. Keep on the berries. Sees a bath is like the male version of Oprah. They're better when thick I want to wait going keep it. Oh, I challenge. All right. Stay off. Stay on the crunch berries. I must up. That's that's a stay on the crunch berries. Stay on him CCC about the is like the male version of Oprah. They're better when they're thick. Oh, yes. Yes. All right now line from Stephen a Smith. I mean, he's he's relatively joke. At this point. I think Stephen Smith like people people kinda like deal with him like do with francesa anything he says is idiotic and ridiculous. But he's also so he's like the last entertaining personality left at has assure. Oh, he's impel belts a little more. You know? 'and up. Yeah. Right. Stephen Smith is no there's routinely clippers another one the other day. Oh, I don't know. If you tell the clip of him saying hell EON bell should go. Do the Panthers and Victor Cruz and someone else will on the set looking at him. Like he was crazy because they're like they have Christian McCaffrey receivers. You know, they need receivers Vickers is facing very funny. He catches ten balls game. He's basically one receiver in the win the NFL. And he's a Ryan back is he has no idea. But he does have a point Stephen. I it's now it's in bad taste. So let's just make it out that we're not doing this invents as so that way, you can't say that because I stopped you. But right had to get that out there. But I mean, see sucks when he's skinny he does. The worst two year stretch of his career back in twenty thirteen twenty fourteen hit a four eight seventy array combine those two years, and that was when he he cut out captain crunch which used to eat a box at a time. Which is such an outrageous thing to do a box of cereal at a time do that. I don't even really like I can't even finish a bowl of cereal on its don't know how you do a full full box. But I see. Yes, it's true. The cici's I can't speak to Oprah. I don't know about Oprah being better when she's happy how how he doesn't get any flack for that. So many other people would would he's just like grandfather into being episode everyone. If KFC said that like on Marshall radio. There will be a deadspin article written thirty seconds before he even said it had to be desperate article. And no one says anything but EBay go on sorry. But with C C, N sure, we've set it forever that he's better when he's fat these jokes. Do you know they're a little harder to say, no this heart shoes. But it's they're still true. Serena Williams, just walked on the fuck and stage at the Oscars. I hate her so much moving on. No. But he like it's in bad taste because he almost died a few months ago heart situation, but he's not wrong. I mean, did you see that picture of him golfing with Hicks? Don't think. So it is clear as e how skinny. Often have in the blog. But I definitely tweeted it. I mean, so could find it for all senate's you? But it is. I mean Hicks kind of looks fat. What's going ex, but he Kiko pounds. Maybe Hicks thick at this point. And thick the I t h so, you know, it's all ungracefully in that part. But. Yeah. I'm a little concerned about losing losing that much weight. I mean, he looks like I just found it. He looks like he lost two hundred pounds. No exaggeration. So. Hold on. I'm saying to you. Now, we're gonna get your live reaction to this. Where are you? And you should have received that on your phone. Okay. I got it. Oh, yeah. Wow. And that is. Yeah. It looks it like a drug problem, basically, say shit on cocaine and Hicks. I mean Hicks. I mean that Hicks data. Yeah. I mean, but its stomach does look a little bigger. But he's a dad dad looks bigger than. I know it's astonishing. Hey, I don't like that. I don't like that at all. But I'm like fifteen more pounds and you'll be fine. Did you see the Yankees with whole wigs thing? Yes. I mean, we're just wearing way. They're doing photo shoots with wigs or something Brett Gardner. One. Was absolutely terrifying. Frankie came over to. Yeah. I ruined his day. Or whatever literally ruined. I mean, he does not like pick on. But I was tough your boy Noah Syndergaard back in the news. You see that one tweet. I feel about that one. Then you, quote, I mean, I'm blocked from send someone send it to you like how to screen up bubble gum on. Yeah. Yeah. So that I no I was on somebody Instagram explore page in popped up. When he goes, I've come here to come here to bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of problem. He posted it on his Instagram with the picture. I tweeted I was like this can't be real quote Canet. No human being can be that insufferable everyone immediately. At me, all this is from days uses from dazed confused, blah, blah, blah to movie quote while. Okay. So it's right. Then it wasn't like a real quote to it wasn't original row. Quote, the no proo kind of did prove my tweak wreck. But regardless he still insufferable unfunny deuce bag for quoting that and thinking that it's fun. I've never seen days and confused so hand up so I either so, but I I have like I'm pretty sure it's even allow Sean things when he was on the prices, right? That slogan. I've heard this logo before I've come here to do X. Yes. All out of X. Yes. I have heard that before. But. You know, it didn't click immediately. But it doesn't matter. It doesn't. I don't care. You know that it's where movie or not it's still makes him insufferable. The fact that he thought that was funny to put on with the caption like all of it just very classic Nossa. That's also like when baseball's back. It's like when we're making fun of no Syndergaard again, like we're actually back like at something else to someone tweeted at all the rain, the rain things thrown in the rain. And and he was just he. There was something else too. With. Something with like a catch. No way falls me. Let's see. Don't try to raise. No because he will hear it as I got it. So he put up a picture of him, obviously shirtless fishing on a boat. And it goes he says his cash, and they say, there's plenty of fish in the sea dot dot dot just looking for my trophy. What Frist is that another movie quota? I don't. May four. It's definitely definitely movie, quote, just look. He is crazy is the worst person on this planet the single worst. Thank god. He's on a Yankee magin that shit show shit show. All is Instagram's 'cause cer- Graham. But whatever he's something else. Thank god. Imagine if he came over to the Yankees like how we'd have to spins on that. It'd be real tough. It'd be like, oh, no Syndergaard stopped reminding me kick your ass. I hope he does. I hope no cigar comes in the office. Punches me in the face of great publicity, easy lawsuit. Hope easiest lawsuit ever could retire off if he'd probably be suspended, it'd be it'd be awesome. Incredible people. Yeah. Someone said that to to make because he actually threatened to do that to me. Yeah. Be great. The unbelievable. I welcome come to my office. Take out take us both out. With one punch. You won't Posey. Yankees hypnotize tonight at a team bonding activity they were hypnotized how do you feel about that? So we were talking about this on borstal radio a couple of weeks ago about hypnosis and stuff. I would like to try to be hypnotized, but I'd like to I'd like to consider myself to mentally strong to be hypnotized. Okay. I don't want. I don't wanna try just in case. I do actually get I will say I feel like Brett Gardner is a similar way. And he was asleep. Like if this would refuse it and be like magic magic as a real estate troop cop. It's not even being a hard. Oh and saying you don't believe in it. I'm saying like, your your mind is too strong. Where you can't let someone else infiltrate it Gardner refuses to strike out in the playoffs. But he's fifteen pitch at best. There's no, Mike. You could argue there's no more mentally strong guy on the team then Brett Gardner like the guys there. He's dealt with New York for longer than anybody's the longest tenure guy here. So the fact that he fell asleep is alarming and magic might be real. I will say years ago probably five years ago. I went to some sort of carnival state fair type deal with my cousin. And he was with his his his now wife, and she got put on sage during hypnosis thing. And she got hypnotized that he slapped her that my cousin slapped her ass in like a sec kneeling not in a good way. And they got they. Going to fight an hour long fight because of it. Real it was it was the real thing possible. If people are calling off talking about it their experiences. I mean, even America's got talent on your watch. But Howie Mandel gets hypnotized shake someone's hand, and he's a huge germaphobe. So to be honest, like I've always been somewhat sceptical of it where it's like, oh, I think these people are in on it. You know, it's an act there just ain't on it. But I don't know seems like firstly recently hypnosis is just more and more entering my. You know, my orbit my world end. I do not want to be apart. Yeah. I don't know when we're down in Tampa. Let's ask you about that that will be like a daily will asked every single interview that real or did you fake this and get thoughts because magic crazy man, but over there hypnotize winning World Series? What if what if Greg Berga hypnotized into becoming like Barry Bonds? Yeah. I wouldn't mind. I would be. That's a great strategy. Hypnotize Severino to not give up home runs walked people. I like that. I remember I once had an idea this was a few years ago when the inky is one of the one of the years that didn't make the playoffs. And I thought they knew the spark, and I said the inky should have gone to a a psychic medium someone talks to the dead. Have you ever had? Yes. And just had George Steinbrenner yell at the team just like bring back the goes to George to yell yell and everyone like he would have back in the day. What was your experience like doing that? I want to my dad my dad had gone a while my dad gone probably twenty years ago. And he said it was like really like powerful right after his dad died anti said the lady just kept saying something about lemons like your dad really wants you to know something about lemons. And he's like all right. Like, I don't know what that's about. And then like a few days later was Kentucky to some horse race. And there was a I think a horse called the lemon drop kid or something bet on it and at one and so at once I heard that as I try so anything that could you know, it's gonna get me money from the dead. I don't wanna try it. So I went my dad little bit after my grandma died, and yeah, it was I mean, it it's tough to tell. How real is. When my dad walked in the room, the medium was like your dad walked right in with you, which like keys, such it's not that hard to guess that. My dad would have it the dad, but to do that right off the bat like he could just be alive. You know what I mean? And then the thing screwed so it was on and off there's some general things I felt like all right? This just some general. And there are some things that he would hit on. So I would like to go to I go to a different one probably had a curiosity. But it is. It's fascinating. You wanna try? It. Would you maybe try one down in Tampa? Tampa medium just tell us the future of the Antes. Let's different there's psychics and mediums. Are there's like the future. And then there's the talking to the debt. Oh, okay. Okay. Okay. What so medium is the death one, right? Yes. Let's ask about Jacoby ellsbury. What's he doing? What's he doing? Is he dead? Like. Yeah. Like, what's he doing now that he's dead? I should've talked about Syracuse. We can was pretty wild figure saves the end, but let's DM's real quick. By the way, follow us on Instagram. We finally create a short porch Instagram account for us because we've been doing this for a year and just forgot to do that and instruments the most popular like social media out there right now. So I in classic fashion forgot to do that for a year. So we're back. We it's called the underscore short underscore porch. 'cause short wasn't available. But yeah, I tweeted out we have a resounding two hundred seventy six followers, so far, which is great. Let's increase that as we go. So I said we'll do DM's from there. So the first one I think screen Sean on for two good one. Actually, they came in very hot. I'm hitting all the wrong buttons right now. Okay. First question here from John Smolen? Question for the next report. How do I get my friend finally realized Greg bird is the worst? He's already sent me his spring training stats. He's been like this for years. Please help I responded my Twitter. I think that's the easiest way to his real that he is for every spring training. Stati sends you some back regular season set. Yeah. Exactly. And we're just like do the men in black flashy thing with your face every time like spring training. You just forget it. And you only watch maybe don't watch spring training. That's you do it convince him watching the regular season. And that's been training. Like, we do with everything. Besides tell Tyler Wade next one. This is a good hypothetical send more of these. Because he's a very good. This is from Nick Teerlinck. Hypothetical primarily for because I'm more of a Knicks fan, but we can spin it to you in some way. But Greg bird not on the opening day roster and the Knicks don't get Zion or Greg bird on the opening day roster and the Knicks geds I on. Tough that I think it's I am like a casual Knicks fan. I don't you're probably bigger Knicks fan. You are extent than I am. I like them to win and watch the games. And even I'm gonna say Greg bird on the roster next gets probably but fuck I like like so much on. But my thinking is if Greg bird makes Ross was probably, you know, we had a good spring training, and it just a hoodwink that means we got hoodwinked again. But it just as opening day roster. So could last two weeks, and then you know, comes right back Nick still Zion affects twenty years. Okay. Fair fair. How would you spend on the giant? So you want Russell Wilson. Do you want that trade ourselves? Rumors. You want him? I mean, I'm not even paying attention to those because I know that's happened. Eating garbage. I don't think. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think. That's I don't think I saw this weekend. Like was jaw-dropping. Wow. Debbie wild. I would do it with like two next year. Probably. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I would still want to. Yeah. That's fair. That's fair. All right. I only selected to. So let's do we'll do two more gonna pick. Right. Only right now. So this should go smoothly. Let's see. I was looking at my name's I've I've a pretty decent one. Maybe one we could have put more thought into. But we'll just do it on the fly from at metaphors Hauer, power lines and metaphors is good. He's going to powering the Harto's on the roster. The which hate if they were on the Red Sox. So he said like void Gardy. Clint Frazier like basically who on the Ke's would we hate if they were on a rival team. I think Luke Voight is a good example. I mean, we love him because he's the Anki. But you look at the other teams they hate him. Our judge not someone you probably hate, you know, he's got that jeeter sorta quality to him Clinton Frazier. I could definitely see us heyday. I mean, we love him. But because he is not lightning. Rod if he was on another team. I mean, even Anki fancied him, which is crazy. But anyone with basically the way I'm thinking of it is anybody with a personality if they're on another team, I would hate them. So it's almost a compliment to say that we would hate you on another team is sort of a compliment. Okay. Yeah. I guess. Yeah. You wouldn't hate Miguel into hard on their team? Like, right. He's doesn't do say anything gleyber Torres. Same way on got Gary Sanchez. I almost hate when he's on the I don't know how I feel if he was on another team probably fundable. Yeah. Would you hate Gardner? Do you hate Dustin Pedroia, right? So I guess it's the same thing. I guess not. He shaved his face. She looks czar. Like, I wanna hate Petrolia, but I respect his grit and hustle to degree which I feel like is similar to garner. Jury has had a better career than Gardner voice. Probably the answer because they would suck his dick in Boston. They would love him. They would eat everything. He does. That would be he'd be like there'd be. Yeah. That would definitely be the number one. I do love. How Red Sox sheds hate him? And think he's like a Gaba. Goo, and you know, he wears jersey half button. That almost makes it it makes you love me more. How much the Red Sox despise him? And how good he isn't how they just can't shut him down. Yeah. It's great to have a player. Like, I like we said the Red Sox always sort of have guys like that Anke. Have key is a great personnel. And he is everything he is what people associated juice bagging. Yep. This is the forty s underscore Patrick. If you had to choose one who would you want Jacoby ellsbury starting lineup. Greg burn the lineup for the whole season. One hundred percents healthy. Greg bird. Yeah. Probably. Well, actually, so they're healthy. Doesn't mean they're, but they're healthy. Right. He can't get rid of them. Yeah. And they can't be sent out dealing with whatever they're doing. The problem with a healthy bird is even if he's healthy doesn't mean he's seen him be healthy and not be good. But the thing is if Elvis we in the lineup every day the outfield is crowded enough already where garner Frazier than sitting every and Frazier sitting everyday, so I guess I'll take I guess I'll take Greg bird. I don't say Berg because like you said before it adds, the left eve opponents ellsbury lefty too, but but he's not real person. Yeah. He's not the power bat. That's power bird. Okay. Let's do one more. The quick story. Everyone always asked you think we're making trays the deadline. Really depends. How the rotation is gonna go is tolerated. Just giving us blue balls all again, or is he legit this time. That's from Sam Spicer. If you actually were to say, you're asking right now, I do think I'm hopeful. So I am hope he's so important to the team. Like, we said that I am just very hopeful that that he's going to be better. I mean, it's almost he knows he's you know, this is a huge year for him. He knows he's not lived up to you know, what he's capable of. I'm hoping for the best. I hope he does. Oh, yeah. He looks his swing looks good. What rocks? So I'm very I do think I think he's going to make the team. I have I have some faith. I think they want to believe in him. They they like we said that. So I like to say that he's legit and me, otherwise, let's go sorry. So now, we're gonna do real quick Syracuse. I was in Syracuse this weekend. For the game. I managed to get drugged Friday night Xanax, and I don't do drugs. Really? But I. Zanex three. What do you mean? You got Salix Sola. After after the bars, we went to a frat invite us over like, you know, drink whatever play pong like why not Friday night like nothing else to do. We're here for reason. Like, you know. You know, very I stay hotel Sheridan Sheridan like there. They gave us a suite upgrade sweet for like, no extra money. It was unbelievable. We had like two sweets was great like eight of us. But we went to this frat they were playing beer pong with jungle juice, and I just kept drinking. It all of a sudden like my brain shut off. And I just woke up the next morning. It was ten in the morning. I was in bed. So I have no recollection of what happened. And I and like I mean fraternities, you know, they put whatever the hell they want in in in jungle juice. You know, I used to date a girl in a sorority. She she would say that lot and just continually drink it, which was crazy. But yeah, I got Xanax one hundred percent. So this is quite a leap to say that you got Saddik. You don't know that it was annex jungle juice in a frat. I would say like ninety percent sure there's some something some some crazy shit in there. We're playing idiot. We shouldn't have been blamed beer pong with it. But that was scary feeling. I said no I do anyone else. Get everyone was drinking beer. You're the only one drinking Deng. That's what I was told. I don't know really stupid and then Saturday. We after the game we have lost to Duke, and you know, the campuses dead. No one's going out. Really? So we were all sitting around the game is at six on ended like eight and Welson around. We're deciding you wanna go out and make it to the bars. Do whatever I was down. And my buddy he had these energy pills that are being pharmaceutically tested. And like, I don't know if they ref the approved or any of that how does he have his let's let's just say without giving too much detail like is companies just working with them to like advertise, basically and like make commercials for them. And and I took and he just like, yeah. There is basically rebel. And I took it and my heart was racing like three thousand miles an hour. And I was I was honestly like sweating freaking out. We either gonna walk around campus to like cool down. Then we went to the bar. I woke up. The next morning. I woke up today, and it's almost like an even go to sleep. My heart was still racing. I thought it was going to die in the car ride home. It was I was freaking out my heart. I have I end like no one else took the I think my other buddy took it. And he gets like a weird reaction when he drinks like vodka like allergic reaction, his face red and shit. So that was happening along with the energy pill. He was under the world. So we end up driving home in like, I thought I was dying. I thought it was having a heart attack. It was it was a crazy feeling. I didn't know what to do. So, but I'm still alive. I'm now completely back to normal. But it took like twenty hours to get back to normal this fucking energy pill. It looks like it's an aquarium when you look at it. It's like it's like blue water. I don't know. I don't wanna fuck it. I'm that's people always say I've always heard like for from high school and stuff that when someone offers you a random pill. That's off the market is that you should take it. Definitely one hundred percent. That's the way that's the way to live life on top of that in the morning starting my day with a coffee, which I don't really drink. But I'm getting into it and a red bull and that made me think of Tommy Canley. Did you see this? Tommy Canley story of what he used to do straight years. He would have six rebels and two coffees every day for six years. I mean, he will die young age. It's a shocker diary. That is crazy. I had one rebel one coffee. I was running through a wall. I was I was most active, hyper person in the world, all the bars and tailgates freaking out. And then I did the energy later on top of it. But I if I shit. Oh, yeah. Today was actually the buckle at that. Is we had a four hour car ride? It was tough anyone involved. There was listening to the show that was in the car. I'm sorry. But I was shit your pants in the car. No, let's say the farts weren't like the best smelling the world it was as a four hour car ride. I felt like I trapped my friends in a car like in a prison. They said, no scape. But whatever where we're still alive. You other things shadow calling the bartender at Syracuse guys. The man big big short porch guy. He's actually involved with the big brain thing. We're doing, you know, the big thing like hit shit. Yeah. He's pitching to he's got. He's got a bourbon company or something like that or a whisky company. So pretty legit. His business card was wooded. Crazy nuts, dick. I've never seen that mean either. But I would be hooked. If I if someone had to be a wouldn't business card. I would hire I almost got splinter from it was like Saint it's still have it. Let me show. It's a now, I'm just also I'll I'll talk about real quick. I also went sort sorta left. I went to back. I went back to Fordham yesterday. But instead of Syracuse Duke, it was a Fordham Saint off incher forum loss by twenty points. Oh my God. With the three right? You only count by threes only count by threes, baby. Here's the thing. Can you see it? Yeah. Look at it's cool. Thick it is too crazy. This is great radio. Yeah. This it looks cool for everyone that can't say, which is everyone. It does. Look what else we got here about a really terrible hat had the return out of embarrassment because my friends basically bullied me because I it was the worst looking hat in the world that was tough tough weekend. And then the guy in front of me. So everyone's going nuts at the Duke game. And this guy was wearing a Syracuse hoodie, and he was Duke fan. He basically was rooting for the team was winning the entire game. Like, whoever had the lead. He was just rooting for them. I don't know he was mostly insufferable human being ever. And then at one point when the when Duke. Like a big three whatever he so like we're in the upper deck. So every I mean, it's like sitting in every every over the, you know, it's very confined not spacious at all. And he took a step and he missed the seat and miss me. Missed what we were standing on. He stepped in nothing, and he just fell down a row of seats at just absolutely bodied a little kid like a six year old kid just got destroyed by this guy. And he also said Cameron who's the number one player in the country. This guy's just delusional person. But he felt that a kid I probably did by chance because that's what do people do. Terrible people. So fuck Duke. And that's really I mean, no one really cares about my weekend. I just had to kinda just say that loud about the whole me being drunk thing. I'm just going to stay away from those being drugged in you. I would say, you stupidly drank oughta jungle, juice and involuntarily took a sketchy pill, and it's the same thing. Same thing. But that's show. We're back. Baseball's back that was honestly like in vigor. I just felt like I was alive that entire like hour. So because it just feels great delight talk about actual things on the field and not like hypotheticals or with the roster going to be looking like, which we will talk about. But now we have actual baseball talk about Aaron judge on call center in the lineup. That's the Blue Jays one o'clock on. Yes. On monday. So we have stuff to get us through work, which is even better. Holy shit. We're going on Tampa, Florida Marquette be there be square hope the running you. And and that's it take this fucking shits in the moon. What he got? What? Do you have any else adds to the show way you phrase that? I didn't know what I take us to the moon. What he is. Not the weird. I'm nothing else. Okay. Well show that take electric. Oh, we'll quick Jacoby ellsbury update. That's up date. Thank you for listening to this short porch. We'll be back. I might. Squad. Got a rope who come through. Katrine maybe because they show and say this. This book. Bitches like him. Like, you just don't know. My right now. Right now being backstroke. Right now. Go up right now. Got taste coming. And they do it. Scheme in this game. We steaming for.

Thomas karen auntie as always but heading any sox at fenway this weekend for the first time since last september and for the first time with fans in the ball yard in a much longer period of time. I can't calculate do month. Math on the fly probably should've prepared that I think it was two twenty. Nineteen i don't know but it's it's been a long time. We are ready to be. Welcome back to fenway. By the fenway faithful. And so we've got one of them alongside us today. Four the pod new fan sided editor on the phillies site. But she is a die. Hard red sox fan and he founder of girl the game gabrielle star gabrielle. Thanks for joining us. Today tells a little bit about how you got here. How you came to be here on the pod with us. We're excited to talk with you. And probably get ruthlessly mocked by you because that's that's sort of how it goes i mean i'm expert vinegar ruthlessly mocked by you guys too but that start was really really nice so thank you I you know what you when you said fans have been in the stands real quick of since sox yankees in pretty sure that the last time fans were in stands at fenway the rivalry with sunday night baseball in september twenty nineteen when they fired dave dombrowski during the game. They're at. I found out about it and it was like they're really. They're really like i don't know if they want her loss. But they fired dave dombrowski during sunday. Baseball and it was red sox. Jesus was pretty close to the end of the season. So i'm gonna safely surmise. That was then fans in the stands. thank you so much for having me. I don't really know what to say. Yeah i got into sports as a blogger in two thousand seventeen. I was doing writing freelance But in the beauty industry while working full time at a start up in boston. And i just wasn't feeling filled like i knew that i liked writing but i just i found it very easy and kind of monotonous to just be like at this skin. Care product has x. amount of vitamin c. And as we all know league wasn't it wasn't filling my cup At a friend of mine was like well. You're crazy psychotic. Red sox fan like you're a good writer. Why don't you try writing about that and Since he was somebody in the red sox organization very high level. I was like it was like a family friend. I was like okay. Like if you think that i could you know And so i just started doing it for fun. And i was doing it for another site. That was kind of like wannabe barstool. But like not as heavy and then i on a whim started girl at the game one day and i remember sitting there on my bed making a wordpress website just for fun. There's like what am i going to call it. I like alliteration. Why don't i call it gabrielle. At the game But then like you know at the end of the day though. I'm just a girl at the game like it's on gabrielli. Gets you know all women. Anyone who identifies as a woman who loves sports in our passionate about sports and have opinions in the have memories and takes and want a place to put them on and so people responded to it. Really well and i started adding contributors. We have a podcast now. And then i was also hosting locked on red sox and i was doing social for. Mlb on lockdown red sox all of their mlb podcast which was thirty three podcasts during the central for them myself and and then fans cited came calling and it was the perfect fit because i liked to write about things that i would like to read and a lot of kind of the old world media. You know. it's no disrespect to them. It's just a different kind of world. Now and bloggers and fans can give their takes and be taken seriously as oh you can care about the sport but you can also be objective about it. And that's something. I pride myself on. Is you know. I love the red sox but when push comes to shove if bullpens being garbage i'm gonna call them on it if they're hiring domestic abuse or i'm gonna call him on it. I'm not a blind fan. And i think that that's important to have people like that. I wish that teams hired people like that to help. Give them more of the fan side. I did not do that. On purposely swear but You know if if each team had kind of like a fan representative to be like. Hey this is what fans actually want. This is what fans actually care about. I think baseball would be a lot better place That was a lot but yeah so it'd be nice if the yankees had that i mean we. Sometimes we were convinced brian. Cashman's listening to what we're saying because we're we're coming up with we. Just we come up with trae candidates. Every single day doesn't matter who it is. We're talking about how bad they been. And how. They need to be held accountable. So we know where you're coming from from that angle and baseball's been super crazy this year so fans have had a loud voice and everything that's been going on but what time for you to come onto the scene in twenty seventeen you said. Red sox win the world series in two thousand eighteen. Then you have that little flop of the season in twenty nineteen then. Mookie betts get straighted and then twenty twenty a so the first thing i wanted to ask you at the top. We're not gonna talk about last night where you guys blue blue that game. Richard zabel bit of a no hitter going. We get a little while. Garrett could literally never be garbage got ross. So what top here. I wanted to ask a red sox. Fan who is very level headed. I think in you. And wanna know if if you guys have come to terms with the mookie betts raid or what the healing process has been. Because i've been watching. A lot of alex perdue go this year. And it's not it's not a good straight up trade but alex for dugo is frigging pretty good and he fits the identity of your team. I think perfectly. So what's what's it been like over the last year yourself. You know. Alex purdue go first of a wasn't the only part of that trade so i mean we got connor wong also who actually is at the big league club this week. Because kevin blackie is hurt. So he's You know it's his debut time now But that was really not eloquent. I'm sorry i have not had any caffeine today. Alex redo actually has the third highest batting average among like the typical starters in the lineup for the red sox apologized. I live in the city and it's very loud. He's hitting to eighty two on the season. And you know he is. He has been very impressive in the outfield. Obviously there was never going to be a straight up trade. That really satisfied anyone. I william. Maybe if they were like years walker bueller and eight hundred million dollars like okay then we can talk. Maybe but i think the thing with. Mookie is they they low balled him from the star. I think he felt insulted. He i think part of him did wanna stay here for his entire career. You know. he's the rare homegrown guy that we have here in boston but at the end of the day they him a really low amount for what he deserved literally right after the world series when he's the ale mvp and he's the batting champion. He gold glove silver slugger. You know all of these accolades. He literally leads them to world series and they like give him much less than he deserves. And i think he kind of was like. Wow if this is like everything. I've done like the confettis literally still on boylston street right now and you're offering me like seven years. Two hundred twenty million. Like i'm at least gonna try free agency and i don't think that means that if the red sox had given him a competitive offer if if we had reached his free agency this year that he wouldn't have stayed. But i think that you know between that and then debrosse keesing ra. So he's not gonna take it. I'm to go out and give all this money to evolve in sale. It just was setting the stage for as dombrowski loves to do bad financial decisions overspending over budget and then john henry being like actually we would like you to stop spending down to brodsky's like add on how to do that so i guess i'm just not gonna make any moves for the entire twenty nineteen season and you see that because craig kimbrel joe. Kelley walked after two thousand eighteen and the only person he added to the team was colin. Brewer factually perennially mediocre. And like doesn't add anything to this team so with mckee. I think. I don't know it was like i was expecting it. Because now we've been over a year says the actual trade in extension. But like it sucked. It really sucked honestly. At that point you know it was the twentieth. Nineteen twenty eight twenty. Offseason was like mookie saying you know like the cheating investigation You know the pandemic like it was just such. A cluster bleep. I don't know here's swear on this. Podcast it was like it was down and you know it kind of got to the point. Where like it just seemed like a fever. Dream of even having mookie betts and then you know i think most red sox fans were heartbroken. They didn't blame him because a it wasn't up to him if he was traded or not but people were mad at the red sox 'cause they made bad financial decisions. You building your team around him. He's the other. Mike trout basically in this conversation and instead of building around him you treated him and basically paid. The dodgers take david price. You had a skeleton starting rotation. Your team was embarrassingly. Bad literally two years after world series in stop may few seen that before about. We've won four world series. Fifteen years of menu are in the bottom of the barrel. Like two years later like this is this is like the pendulum. The see-saw that i cannot get off of But i think everyone here was happy for mookie. You know to win the world series like everyone here that i've seen unless you're like really one of those ships had sports fan. That just isn't a real fan most of us when he won like i was like i'm happy for him. He deserves it. He's a great player. He's a great athlete. He's great for just great things in his community. he is super philanthropic. He's wonderful like during the twentieth eighteen. Postseason he was feeding the homeless after games in boston. He was like literally bringing trays of food to homeless people in downtown boston. While trying to win a series. That's just the kind of guy he is. I don't think anyone here. Begrudges him that success. I think it is hard but go has been good We'll see what happens with. Connor wong and You know. I think the biggest thing was we didn't get any pitching prospects in this deal and we desperately need those As you guys. But then we got gary wheelock from us. The thank you you know that. Yeah all right yeah. I mean with mickey. There were times where it was frustrating during this whole year and a half because they drew it out like all twenty nineteen it was like is he gonna be treated during the season is he gonna be you know. Is he gonna sign the extension like he said at the beginning of the twentieth nineteen season. I just wanna focus on the season. I'm going to free agency. Like he kept saying that. And so i think a lot of fans myself included as on the fan lino aspect of my life. We're kind of like this sucks dude like i get that you want to focus on the season but like do you want to be here or not. It was kind of hard because you know he kept just saying. I intend to test free agency and then the i think the thing that stung a little bit was that he was always so adamant when he was here about going to free agency and then like within months of going to the dodgers he signs this megadeal and so i think that part was i of lake that was a little bit of a slap in the face but again that was during the pandemic his priorities shifted. Jd martinez was asked last fall. If he was gonna opt out before this season he's like our. Don't want to be a fridge right now. He's like what i mean. No like murky did what was best for him. I respect one hundred percent. I still root for him as long as he's not playing the red sox and you know i he's one of the greatest like he will be in. The hall of fame on satellite will probably be in a dodger scout. But that was. That's what we wanted to ask you for that trade. That was just one of those moments. Where and i have one thing you know about me. I sort of have a six cents for when the red sox are going to be annoying like you're right that it is a roller coaster right. You are totally right that you you ping pong from being like one hundred win behemoth world chamie to being like a last placed issue strange team but i always sort of no i get the vibe when the comebacks about to start and so it's annoying you've got to admit it's annoying for fans like us on the yankees side who were sort of like we know high and blooms doing we understand that like the team's not going to be a the twenty nineteen and twenty twenty red sox forever. You're not always going to be running kevin pillar and jonathan. Who's out there or whatever like there's gotta be pitching there's gotta be a plan etc etc but this off season. I started to get the vibe. Like they are going to be better sooner than why are they going to be better like. It's partially the alex thing but it's also partially just like they're signing these like three million dollar in dudes who just like as if i don't know if you have the same perception and clearly you kind of do but as fans like you see the red sox signing marlin gonzales and kiki hernandez and the rest of baseball is like those guys suck. And i'm like no no no like renfrew renfrew throw these frigging dudes are gonna be ingredients on the next annoying red sox team. That's going to be a little bit better than you think. It is like and i always hesitate to make fun of the red sox. Because they've got the last laugh on us for what fifteen years now like. Two thousand nine was the last time the agee fans like they went over in the first half. They didn't beat boston once. They one zero games against the boston. Red sox and then the second half. They ate rat a boston's lunch and they propelled it into a world series win but since then there's always been like a red sox fan snickering at the end of the rainbow. Like rehiring alex or even like we got to celebrate al gore being gone for a month and a half and then he took a little six game and then he came back the game. You mentioned. we're dave dombrowski gets fired in the middle of the game and david ortiz comes out like does some weird little waving to the stands for some reason like he gets honored mike after his shooting when he came back to yes and they basically. That wasn't the same night. I don't know i feel like it was that we know 'cause because poppy I was there. Because i if you think that i'm missing. David ortiz's return because like he got shot out a weekend after my birthday is my favorite player of all time and i literally was in my apartment in la crying into a david ortiz pillow. Refreshing my twitter feed for about whether or not he was okay so and then. I moved back to boston like a month late at less than a month later. and i was like if you think that i'm missing. David ortiz. returning offend fenway. When he almost died like no no me at all. And i was there and i was like sobbing hysterically behind home plate. Like was i mean it was very emotional but that i'm ninety nine percent sure that was a week night but it was around the same time pretty germs weeknight. Because it was kind of like a random like a tuesday or something. Okay good. I will recant that statement. He's like sitting next to the dugout just like eating sunflower seeds. Of course he just go down there and like suit up and maybe we're really bad this year. Can you just hit some bombs like no. I just remember that. I remember that last night game though because mike talk men is a key piece of that twenty nine hundred team got her in the middle of field for no reason like just running around heard is quad and then in the playoffs. No stanton somehow and then. They have no outfield depth. And it's like all right threat like we're supposed to go on this playoff run this year and the red sox are laughing at us again. Injuring our last outfield hope in their stadium. We're gonna take a quick quick break. Don't wanna kill momentum when we come back we're gonna be talking this weekend series what we can expect. Stick around. Welcome back to the yard podcast with gabrielle star. Red sox fan extraordinaire. No better timing this. So let's let's talk about the comeback. Twenty twenty one red sox and it's it's been a weird year for everyone. I think a lot of people expected not this. Although like i said i did and you said you did too. Why is alex quarterback. Why is this happening to me. Personally i feel like i see a lot of yankees fans on twitter like obviously they don't like corre because kazlo the cheating thing i get that one hundred percent. I'm not a fan of cheating either. Just gonna put that out there. Right now The first thing. I said when the allegations against the red sox came out was i don't want anything that wasn't one fair and square. Obviously that's a bold thing to say. Considering there has been cheating in baseball for one hundred fifty years but i mean like astros level cheating at a want. I don't want it putting another But yeah i see yankees fans like. I hate alex. Cora but i hate aaron boone. 'cause like dude congratulations. Your team hired a guy because he hit one walk off home. Run like literally i. I will never understand that like so many qualified people. And you hit the you like you hire the guy literally to troll the red sox and that doesn't even work because we told you right back. It's it's kind of insane. I'm cory for one thing just like connects with the players. So while you guys like divers in bogart's really struggled without msn actually denver's because he's basically a twelve year old ignore the fact. He has two children of his own. Didn't know that did not know that these guys they just core and knows how to work with them. In a way that ron reynecke just wasn't going to get done last year and you knew that from the second that they announced that they perfect scapegoat. He was interim escaped. He was they were like a great. Forget degrade great filler. When we fire them at the end of the year. Nobody's say a word. Nobody's gonna care. I mean look. He came to boston to be chorus coach. That's what he wanted to do. He didn't wanna manage this team. He stepped in. And you knew that. Barring some kind of crazy amazing managerial candidate. Coming out of the work. That the reason it was. Cora i mean the reason that was reinecke was because corner would be coming back because otherwise you just hire somebody new. 'cause you're not i mean while yes. The red sox have fired people in various short times. I mean time the cashman's been your gm. We've had like seven gentlemen interest but you don't you don't hire reynecke you don't you don't assign reinecke to the role if you're gonna just actually hire someone for real so cora coming back i mean for starters. It's just like it's i hate to say it but it's a vibe thing. He knows how to deal with his players. He knows how to get the best out of them. Got getting guys like in marlin. Those guys at cora has coached before in houston and in for team. Puerto rico with key there guys that he knows what they can do and maybe the teams that they were currently that they were previously on. Weren't getting the most out of them but coronado's how to get something out of them. And i think that's something that he heim bloom having common. Is they kind of see the diamond in the rough in all situations. I mean look at nick. Pa- vada prevented last night. Six in two-thirds scoreless hitless innings with only two walks. This is a guy who had fifteen eray for philadelphia last year before getting traded. This is a guy who's the was never under four with the phillies in like three and a half seasons with them. This guy that they had given up on who find bloom for whatever reason had been targeting since he was with the rays. And you look at that and you're like what does this guy know about these ranchos that we don't know but you know a lot of them have worked out pretty well. So far and even garrett richards garrett richards like lord campbell. There's so many better things you can spend ten million dollars on garrett richards but i'm sure you guys can relate to this because you know the sticky stuff has impacted like a lot of pictures including pictures on your team course. I don't think that garrett richards anticipated that in the middle of the season he everybody else would have to go cold turkey on sticky stuff and he he basically has admitted that he has been a pitcher who's been using this stuff for his entire career. That's basically what you can infer pretty plainly from what he's been saying Over the last week kind of embarrassing for him though because he wasn't even that good when he was using a sticky stuff but that might be one high blooms rare els just based on how things have changed in the league. But yeah. I think coaching though so like i can't even fault. I wouldn't fault him for that and you guys were in on kluber too. So you're saying why we didn't go for cleveland. I understand it kind of a tongue in cheek by bloomer. He was like we already have enough players. Capitulate coming back from elbow injuries. Like i get it you know. We're like all of our hopes. Are all of our eggs in the chris. Sale basket right. Now but yeah. Gary richards aguirre. Richardson matt andries. Just an austin brace bryce in new but He's terrible so you know we look. It's kind of funny. Because i think a lot of people thought this division would be a lot more hotly contested than it is and we kind of just have like a lot of like spiderman vs spiderman of teams go on tear and then they actually completely fall apart I haven't really kept an eye on like if your team's gone on any tears but like you know the raise. The jays the socks look. We lost the three games in a row at the beginning of the season to the orioles. So it's all it's a giant roller every year. It's rollercoaster yankees went on a twenty three. They start at six and eleven twenty three and nine five and thirteen now. What adam six seven and six to seven and two and look at. I think that the roller coaster does have to do with the manager. We're talking about alex. Cora i think he. Aaron boone is the antithesis about alex. Talk about all the time you look at the yankees rosser. It could like adamant i could. He could be manager. And i could be bench coach in the yankees would probably win ninety games like it's an autopilot roster. There's not many decisions you can make to kinda screw things up that aaron boone. Kinda does that more often than not and he is not a motive he well i don't i don't know not i know it's your podcast but can i ask. You is seriously because i need to know how the hell is aaron. Boone still managing this team. Like i said it's autopilot. They don't want they're not gonna create any midseason sir and like we said it's an autopilot rosser. As long as things aren't happening like they were during the the the six and eleven in the five and thirteen stretch. It doesn't matter. This team is supposed to hit. The team is supposed to have oak the bullpen. Supposed to be nails. Starting rotations actually solid so very few mistakes you can make but comparing him to corre corre does get every ounce of skill and and passionate as players in aaron. Boone does not do that and just look human wet blanket. He's a bit. yeah he's a puppet for the front office too but you know and now being a puppet i know no. I'm not even saying this to troll. I'm saying because you know. I follow you guys on twitter and i follow quite a few yankees fans. And i'm friends with the lockdown years host. Stacey and i just so i see the tweets coming out. And it's like i mean they'll be upset. Looked yankee fans will be upset regardless but this is in the industry leading like this and it's like questionable decision by boone. And i mean look. I don't want the yankees to win. You know i'm a red sox. But what i do like is when both of our teams are good. Because it's not fun i mean. Look it's always good to win a game. But it's not fun in my opinion when one team is just mercilessly beating up on the other team because one team is really good and the other team like. I don't consider that the rivalry. I consider the rival relate two thousand three two thousand four like even two twenty eighteen but like when the yankees are just so good on. The red sox are aesthetic like. That's not fun literally like not even as a fan like nine innings of just getting our asses handed to us. That's not fun. And i think you guys can agree like when the yankees are bad like. It's not it's not. That's not a rivalry that's just well like last year. When what we we went to eight or nine one nine and one on yeah. It was like i was like. I don't wanna play this game. I wanna play legit. Yeah i was more excited to play the blue jays because the games i mean we are asked a bunch of times but we knew the competitive edge. Was there me new. It'd be a fun game to watch and kind of go parlaying into this year and how. It's been very different. We are always talking your guys roster and we're rooting for guys to suck not like you know not to a level where they're gonna get demoted. But like i would love to see jd. Martinez not doing what he's doing. I enjoyed last year talking with no video room access. It was amazing but now the script is flipped you guys have so many players dominating and exceeding expectations and the yankees have everyone underwhelming. To everyone. Like to a degree that is unimaginable. Unless you watch we watch team every night and we're like we can't believe this. I want to know from a sox fan perspective. What players are you most surprised about on the yankees who have taken a gigantic setback. Reva regressed like beyond your wildest dreams who have sox fans like been taking pleasure and who have been terrible you know. I don't know if it's just that like i'm older and i'm more busy and this isn't going to be a fun to answer like this isn't going to be like one of those like crazy. Red sox beyond answers on. I don't know. I like. I don't know if it's just like you know being busy with work or just like kind of evolving is like. Why do i care so much about your team like. I should be focused on my team. I used to yankees fans come. Into my mentioned. I literally saw yankees fan last night like at one in the morning. Be like ha ha. The red sox awesome. Yeah like four hours ago. What are they keeping you up at night. Like what the hell man i you know. I'm a lot more concerned with my team than yours. But i will say. The ongoing thing that baffles me about the yankees is how guys seemed to just get injured. Like living. Life like stan judge. You mentioned my tag men like i. I don't know what's going on with. Luke voi- i just. I know that you guys have like a ton of injuries and people keep going on and offer like sitting for a couple of games. But they're not on the injured list. You know what do they just like. They don't stretch ever to just go in with leg lift weights unlike chug way protein. Like what's the deal with your training methods because these h. bar with term from tom brady. But there's no klay ability on your team like play the outfield anymore. He gets hurt by running. Wind sprints at tropicana field and then he's like oh man like actually takes five steps outside and everything hurts. I'm dying and i'm like okay. Well you actually. I mean it's more legitimately i. It's kind of interesting to see fan to see athletes. You realize the athletes on the one hand they are like the epitome of the human body like physical health. You know they are like the paragon of light. It's like you know seeing hercules in real life and then on the same side their achilles heel on you're you're done God forbid. I just don't understand how at this point when you've had the same players standing judge for example When you've had players get similar injuries or the same kind of injuries like obviously judge had like that broken bone in his hand in like what twenty nineteen or something but yes. I only remember that because it was during the four. Because he was he was hurt in the four-game sweep series. An era was on the call and he couldn't stop talking about judge who hadn't played in weeks as like my dude do you. Do you want to stop your national televised. Love letter and talk about someone who's actually in in the game or are we just going to listen to you. Expound on how beautiful. Aaron judge for another thirty five minutes. How are they have. They shifted their training methods like or healthier this year. They hired an all new strand coach last year. Which is why with getting back to something we briefly touched on. That's why the yankees have corey kluber. Mainly 'cause we hired his guy as co so we like him. We don't have an issue with corey. Kluber in terms of why the red sox veered toge- richards or whatever we have his strength coach. We worked out with in private. So i'm sure the dude was like you guys. Should you got the leg up or whatever It's funny that it's funny here. You'd be so annoyed at a ride in the booth. We're obviously not a rod defenders. We don't care he's you know he is what he is. He was the blight on our fandom for a decade. But the fact that. Espn doesn't seem to be able to balance their booth. Ever your upset that arabs in the talking to the yankees too much and then like five years prior they used to do as red sox sunday night with dan shulman nomar garciaparra and curt schilling. Who's that booth like very clear who that booth is for. You said curt schilling. And i just gagged little a-rod but it's like maybe a little bit worse like a-rod but we got it like give credit where credit's due i mean shillings like a nazi fan. Boy like me literally. Like you're spending your mlb. Paychecks buying things that were worn by people who murdered my ancestors. I'm gonna call you out like i'm surprised. That guy hasn't blocked me up. Because i genuinely go off on acai accurately so i'm not like you know he. You know murders dogs in the street. Like i'm saying has based albums of his nazi artifacts that he has spent at least thousands of dollars if not tens of thousands of dollars buying and like so. It's so appalling. Not to mention he like stole millions of dollars from the state of rhode island and is spreading vaccine misinformation in like. I wrote something about lenny. Dykstra for that balls outta here last week. It was the anniversary of the mets trading him and then he followed me on twitter. Started re tweeting on my articles. And i thought it was kind of funny because one of my pieces. I wrote two things about him and one of them. I said that in retirement post imprisonment dykstra spent his days tweeting vaccine misinformation and tagging curt schilling in aubrey huff in tweets. In hopes that he can join. They're conservative conservative. Retired baseball club and here dykstra was like i. Guess maybe he didn't care or Read it closely. Or he's just a kook But he was re tweeting all of my stuff that i had written and being like the lovely debris al growth this about me and i'm like i literally wrote the east i mean it's it's true but you spread vaccine information misinformation On twitter so. Yeah i don't like curt schilling group ago take a rod over curt schilling in the booth. Any day i think most normal people would cause there's a difference between just being kind of a dink. Unlike a that is a rod and being like a terrible human being. And i don't think era. I mean look era that guy like you can just tell that he wants the yankees to love him so so badly and the yankees are just like no like. You're that guy that we paid. Tens of millions of dollars hundreds of millions of dollars to like we got one world series out of you. The first ever full season suspension for performance enhancing drugs and then at the end of the i was his last fenway game of his career and he was hitting like one thirty maybe and he gets up to bat and everyone's doing him and he was so cocky and you're not even good anymore and we've won like at that point. They'd won three world series. I guess and because what he retiring twenty sixteen hours before they forced him out like he. It was because it was. It wasn't supposed to be his last game but then they forced him out for the season ended. But he's like he's like walking up there you know i'm like at the game. I guess like twenty sixteen. He's like he's like. I can't hear you when people were booing him. And it's like you struck out every single game this weekend. Like why are you so kagi like you're not even like i just like he like i think he he wanted to be the he didn't want to be the villain by think. Once he became the villain he was gonna a lean into this. Because it you know it got him noticed. Got him buzz. You know he probably got more out of it. In terms of like financial style you know lucrative sponsorships of like this. You know this is era. This is like the cocky dude on the yankees like. If you're on field at that point he just trying to like market himself is just kinda that guy but Yeah i i would take him in the booth any day. And i don't like him in the booth. Rod was a rod was the dude Like like it will. He would have been the dude Using his flip phone to take selfies and then making it his facebook profile picture at mean. Only the wraparound sunglasses was vibe for him for a saw mean you look at those pictures of him in jeeter from like the all star game. And they're both like the wraparound sunny is like oversize football. Jerseys unlike sweat shorts down to the knee The nineties were quite time now rennes forever friends forever until they actually got here and then they were not friends river at all she. We go around and do little predictions for this weekend I'm not sure how we're all very differently. I think thomson. I are both very cautious. Considering we just lived through getting swept at home by y'all in our first battle of the year some sunday night game the friday game was my birthday. And i was like i just wanted them to win on my birthday. I don't really care. And then they swept. And i was like oh. This is nice embarrassing. Losses were embarrassing as we. We're having a bad time overall. Let's let's do yankees red sox sandwich. I'll go thomas. I how you feel about this weekend. Where are you mentally mentally. I like where where. The resiliency has. Kind of kicked in for the yankees. The last two. I know it was against the royals but the first game of the series should have one. You could tell. Luke voids kind of changing the complexity of the lineup. They come back. They have that dramatic win in game two that they should have won anyway but they caught it up twice. Then yesterday they blow the doors off and score some runs. So i think that's putting us in a very good spot. We have our three best pitchers going. I know it's not saying much. But kohl's in the finale on sunday which which. I'm happy about so we get two of these. What we get one of these wins. I think we're in a very good position for coal to take down in water. Rodriguez Lefty going up against the heavy right handed yankees lineup and Socks might be a little bit tired that you guys are very very grueling series with ray so that might that might play a little bit into it but still going to be cautiously optimistic. Because i also wouldn't be surprised if we lose the first games of the series. And then baxter against the wall and cole has to get the win. One hundred percent gabrielle. Where are you on this. Are you still off the sweep or are you a little more depressed after this race series at. What's the overall situation. I'm i'm one of the kids down. I'm not. I'm not feeling good My thing with this team is it's so all or nothing you know like they're either going to score literally fifteen runs or they are going to be what they were last night and just totally ruin. Nick peta's gorgeous. Start by not giving a damn thing with their bats. I you know i know. They're tired They had a bad series against the royals last weekend. They lost to three and in very embarrassing fashion too. Because the royals are not good I'm not. I'm not looking forward to it mostly just because i never. I don't know if it's like the the like ingrain trauma of growing up in a boston household before two thousand four. But like i never look forward never confident going into a yankees series like my thing is like i don't wanna get slapped and i'm not saying that as like literally like i just never want them to get swept so going into this series like that is. I'm sorry but that's my low expectation just because our bullpen has been struggling Our lineup has been struggling. I mean bobby dall back is on pace for like two hundred and thirty strikeouts and like the only reason he's still up here is because we don't have better options than that We have guys who are on by christian. Arroyo has been really great for us. Unlike he like he. He hit a grand slam last week in like three home runs but he just went on the injured less Kevin on the injured. The injuries are starting to get to us. We don't have a lot of good options at triple. Eight of that are ready to come up. And i think people forget that. There's a clear distinction between a guy who is ready like waterfront. Go for example. He's been ready like the rays have been holding down because they don't to pay him. They want to manipulate service. Time like that kid's been ready and a lot of times. You know what. I'm sure you have seen a to with your team is the red sox. Denver's he wasn't ready. They called them up because they were last in. The american league in home runs twenty seventeen. They had no bats because the david ortiz retired. And really this is fine. We don't need him and it's really you sure so. They called observers and you see him make routine errors in at third base because he wasn't ready and four years later here we are. So i'm i don't wanna get swept up but i'm optimistic. It's funny like if you pitch shifted what you just said and change the name system yankees like you. I also feel. I mean i had you have pre two thousand four like nervous anxiety. I post you four nervous anxiety disorder. I don't enjoy these games. Ever you were very connected all the time yes. It's knocking skittish constantly. I can't imagine attending one of these. Like that's also where i'm at someone's like you want to go to yankees jesus christ now. Of course i don't Definitely not at fenway. I promised you before. My i did promise you to tell you. The story of the time. I was chasing new fenway bathroom. The censored version is in two thousand twelve and the red sox were really not good and john lackey was mid tommy john rehab and was reviled player and not like a fan favorite. I bought a john. Lackey t shirt at the door for five dollars and wore it as my halloween costume. I was the chicken and beer. Red sox and then i wore it to a game at fenway that year and everything's going fine i don- people notice. I guess and then i was walking the aisles and some dude came up behind me and went john lackey and i just ignored kept walking and he goes john fucking lackey. Haw and i'm like all right. Alright writer and i went into the bathroom. And he's screaming and he's like john lackey and then you go in the bathroom standing on a toilet and also he not he goes john. Lackey wanted you my wife and then he left. I don't know what that means to this day. I don't know if you had a personal vendetta. Maybe john lackey like did try. I don't know situation was the most confusing moment. I've had it a ballpark. So you've asked me in the past like do you like i love anyway not that day. But i love fenway. i would never in my life. Ten yankee sox at fenway. And if you're wants to do that. God bless i don't really like attending oxy stadium. Either to be honest. I went to a game in two thousand nine hundred. That turned out well. Before that i went to the earliest sham endeavors. Game was the most recent yankee socks game. I went to the yankee stadium and i switched positions. I switched positions between the eighth and ninth inning. So i did that. I fully did that. That's my fault but yeah going into the series. You don't wanna get swept. I don't wanna get swept as long as the get swept. I will leave satisfied in the interim though like it's so basically we both want our teams to just win at least one game in the series of. That's that's what we wanted in the last series. Yes were sitting around the house. Just win one. I don't care what it is. Don't care when it happens win. One all i want to know. I'm getting greedy now though i want to. There's no reason game stadium in my life. it was may twenty nineteen. It was remember when andrew benintendi was the red sox leadoff hitter no legitimate reason for a solid two and a half months So i was at the game the first game back that mookie was leadoff man when core finally accepted what every fan had seen for the first two and a half months like this. I shouldn't be batting leadoff. It was like the beginning of benintendi collapsed. I take no pleasure in that. Like i felt so bad for him but it was like power. We still doing this. So i was at that game and i will say my in my experience was not as the i and get chased or anything but i will say on twitter leading up to that series. I had yankees fans like if we see you at fenway. We will be your head in. And i was like this seems really excessive. Like it's a sport. It's not like you're taking this really seriously. Nothing happened at the game. Obviously and your food is really good. But the one thing that i thought was really funny and i literally pulled up. The tweet is i had yankees fan. Sitting in front of us is june. I nineteen i tweeted. I wish you all hear the yankee fan sitting behind me. Moaning about tommy canley. Because the guy was shouting he sucks. He fucking sucks. I hate him. He belongs in aaa. Most gimme chapman. Fuck this guy. And i was like tom. Mckinley has a one point. Five seventy era and everybody yeah. Everybody misses now that he's gone. Yeah and i was just like i know the red sox like the red sox bullpen was so bad in twenty nineteen because they were overworked. Because starters were like dead but to sit there and having against you and be like this guy. Sucked me chapman. I'm sure you know how i feel about that guy. when can lazier was under two well under two. I was like there's your there's there's come at the bottom of the famous no doubt. Oh yeah the three of us are entering weekend. Set huge one and all of us. Just don't wanna get swept. So i guess that's the vibe of we're all sitting here. All of us are nervous. None of us are happy. Like take the rivalry so intense. It's so awesome. And it's like honestly. These games are just stressful. Like it's fun to look back on four for me now and i'm sure three for guys. it in real time because there's just so much wrapped up in it. I don't think it's fun you know. it's it's just. It's just stressful. I don't think it's fun and two thousand and three. I don't even look back on fondly because it gave us our manager of their goal of that.

Episode 157: Domingo Suspended, Eric Cressey Hired, The Red Sox Cheated, And More

"Komo the time Marine One it feels It just happens is at the end of the day. What's what's happening? Welcome to another edition in other short porch presented by Barstools. I'm your host hubs sitting alongside me in studio the Vape God himself the classic cloud. He's spotted stool stool team six now. Is that what it's called timing smoke fix with this thing new hottest squad out on the street and now he's pals flocks team ten. The all better watch out. We've got to record it seven in the morning now because UFO Eleven you take three hours and work for like two or three hours three hours now every day. And that's right when we records now you also so. I think I'm a little less than last week. I can't just I more. Needless fuck you. Well we recorded via skype so it's not like I got you sick but yeah I don't know like I said it's six season but ready ready to talk to me. I've scheduled my first doctor's appointment in five years types of doctor will be next Wednesday. I'm just getting a full. Let me know let me know. I'm always scared like I don't want to know what it is because I eat so poorly and like I live my life my lifestyle. It's just not it's not good. It's not conducive to a twenty six new newly twenty six year old. But I need to know what's going on because I don't feel great and I know something's wrong so get some blood work done. Yeah I'm GonNa have it all everything. Just give me the whole the whole the whole run through and then hopefully maybe a week. You'll find that if I'm undying or not if I'm going to be your death. Fueled a world series Yankees. Ron would be as we said the willing to sacrifice you for that. I'd also be willing. You Know Shit my sister trough whatever whatever it takes you know what whatever it is as you cough Well I'M GONNA try to conceal it. Okay very nice. We've got some. We've got a lot to talk about actually A lot of come through The first we're GONNA get to we. Finally it took way too long. I mean not way too long is that they understood the whole investigate they. They went through the whole investigation and they got all the facts. It seems like Deming Armand finally suspended at that's eighty one games. Eighteen of those retroactive to when he sat at the end of the twentieth nineteen season and then he sat out the playoffs. They don't count those But he'll be out for the first sixty three games of twenty nine thousand nine. He's not appealing You know the Yankees. They're all agreements. Seemed like something really bad happened here. The the alleged rumors that he slapped because his girlfriend or wife girlfriend his girlfriend after this. It was the night of the C. Z.. Gala whatever they believe it was after a lot. It's a lot of people saw it still. No charges filed which is very interesting. And that's where like I was. I agree with like I think domestic violence. I have no tolerance that shit like. That's there's no room for that anywhere so you know it needs needs to be severe it just crazy. There's no charges filed here. That's just something that like. You come down to eighty one game suspension. I mean it's very clear something happens. Just no no one knows what happened. Actually yes weird. I mean if you're just making the suspension based on how terrible of active is and how should he was a person that moment so you think it should be longer than that but I mean look fans were like Oh this long enough. They didn't do as much time investing as the MLB did so they looked into it. They compared to them sure. To pass cases they looked at the fact that there were no charges filed. And I'm sure you know this wasn't just pick out of a hat eighty-one right sixty three without thing but I mean they looked through witten decided that this was what the punishment should be And you know that that's what it is. I mean we judge them for it but that was suspension is and. Yeah so he'll he would have been now talked to baseball side because this is a baseball. PODCAST he would he was probably GonNa be the fifth starter. And if you put them through adding Garrett Cole helps because he was one of the best pitchers last year by far I mean he wins on the staff and and wins. This wasn't like Oh we have winds can be right but no legit. He was great. He was fantastic. One point I wanted to start the all star game. He was that good that you tell. He got hurt and then he came back and he was better after that but they can survive without him without question. I mean you're going to probably have a guy like Jordan. Montgomery step up ideal. He he steps up you know and he showed a lot of flashes during his rookie season. And he's like he's an innings eater and I think he's he's in a comeback motivated and he's he's ready to go and he sat out all last year up until the very very very end So He's pretty much going to be in line here for that fifth fifth spot. So is Mike King. He'll have his chance maybe Clark Schmidt Susan on the forty man yet but I mean that's the guy's GonNa be ready to go real really soon Debbie Garcia waiting in the wings. Yeah less writing them. I think those other guys obviously but but I'm starting to get really worried about him. What you keep saying that as if things have happened it's just been the offseason every every day? That passes them just like go to sleep and I think like many teachers can reliever like I don't know maybe I'll wait. What his deal is like is he another Floreal where we just hype him up too much and he just isn't that good? I mean he did rise through the ranks better than for Floreal definitely Floreal had trouble progressing for sure w was just flying through and the potential Debbie if he actually is a bona fide starter is like and we have a number one and number two waiting So it remains. You're seeing but Debbie will have a shot as well and J hop residue on this. We should have a segment like is Jay HAP- stilling Yankee. And the answer is yes. I think Nike's need like I think some people were saying the Yankees could add another starter. I don't think they you need one. I think this reminds who says that. I don't think nothing really people can like. Oh maybe they add another. Starting pitcher wily necessary is going to say I think it is too especially Ashley with the hormone suspension. Isn't that long. I mean it's two months sixty three games so yeah I think in the meantime you definitely have enough arms to do it but fully on Gumri smidt bigger shift closing here. You need that so I think this I mean they're. They're like eight deep. Yeah if they they went from like nothing to having everything just the difference of one guy that how good that one guy is straight down bumps everyone down all of a sudden savvy to pack your three Tanakh as your. It's like wow. I think this is awesome. I will say also her mom last year came into a little promise innings innings limit. All that right. That's not really GonNa be an issue now. Now he's going to miss in sixty three games. He's Cook Fish and more than one hundred twenty eight hundred thirty right so like he's going to be. I mean you know this is bad and you want to have the whole year but like when he comes back you know there's really not innings limit issue with him and that always runs into with young guys so that's I guess the silver the little silver lining here is like there won't be an inning something with him obviously very bad. I really hope that Joe World there was gonNA suspension and no. It's also like yeah. He's out sixty three games. But it could. I'd be more than that like if he needs Rehab. Whatever it is man like take your time Figures off that because clearly. You weren't in the right state of mind when you did what you did and I have a weird feeling like if you did that and if you do something public right you can only imagine only imagine what's happening behind closed doors. I WANNA get intense speculate but I just hope he gets yourself right. Use It dumps stupid thing to do horrible thing to do to never never put your hands on like that. So hopefully himself out and gets himself right and he takes his time seriously and then we get to bring her mom back and you know everything's good from they're moving on so this whole this whole Yankees. All season has pretty much. been a dream for defense if you go into this offseason. You'd say what you'd say. Well we need our coal when he Garrett Cole Sangare call come forever Larry Raja. He stinks guile go. Guess what he's gone. They brought him map lake whose future of pitching. He's pitching of the future of like the Yankees pitching. He's the future pitching. Everyone will follow what he does from here on guys just be called like Blakey one. Yeah Blah map. Lake walks into a room. The smartest man there without question everyone stops they start Merman. She'll like Oh fuck. That's the guy yes. He knows how to pitch. He knows he knows how to tell people how to pitch. He knows that he can whisper. He's a pitching whisperer. That's what he should be. The pitching whisper expert which is called an addition whisper families. So we got map lake dream. Come true there the first Garrett Cole Fire Rotschild Guys Better Watch out who does analytics knows everything. Bingo Bongo ago. Perfect then the training staff next part just what we have too many injuries and then one hundred three games so crazy one hundred three games games. You don't WanNa like no one's going to give the Yankees credit for winning hundreds of games so many injuries they had but like was it was one of the greatest. I know Aaron Boone. Not when he managed the ears. Yeah absolutely same but They didn't win the world series so no one gives a fuck at the end of the day but if you want to take just a regular one hundred three games division that by that much one of the greatest compliment compliments in baseball history. It is sure any team I think with that many injuries finished third fourth. It shows how deep crazy crazy but don't want to do that again. It was nice and fun. Let's let's actually have the guys at the whole year. What's up? Luis Severino the entire season. Let's have John Carlson the entire season. Let's Aaron judge the entire season to match those guys to say if there's any silver lining to how bad last year roads. It's like my expectations or Solo Solo. Now like having our favorite players for like two months out of the year is almost like the expectation. It's crazy like if any of these guys are most of these guys play hundred forty one hundred fifty games. It'll be unbelievable right and all we kept saying we. We always like to tie the offenders in here because that shit but oh you really like doing that more than me. But Fair okay. I may have roped layered Majok. Yeah you're a big jock then you cry yesterday. During something I was filming I was in character. First team six got oh so only intact with remote. Fuck you But I said it was like a soul stone anytime some would come back off the isle. We'd we have to sacrifice someone that go on the it was just we can never just get someone back and be happy about. It will always be like Oh holy Shit. Aaron Hicks Back. No He's dead now stands unstuck back and forth back and forth. It'd be insane so we have overhauled the strength to get the best possible who. I didn't even think like when it happened when if you have to be this. This is awesome Erik crazy. The Guy Cruzi sports who we have this mystical place that we interviewed interviewed people who had gone there it was it was awkward. Or Yeah like what goes on in this place and now the Yankees has hired back guy just to over there like we've had enough of this bullshit. Let's just take the best possible. He's working Max Scherzer. He's worker Corey. Kluber map. Lake came from there. Some sure map lake when he came over he was like listen guys. You got me now the next part you gotta do. You gotta go get Eric. Because he is just this guy who knows everything he knows how to work your body ready in the right ways. It's the perfect. Hire A. He's taking over. They only they only fired one guy from the the whole department and and it was this Guy Matt Krause. He was the head strength coach. He's he was like Oh and December the only guys fired Steve Donoghue the longtime head trainer. He's been reassigned so he's not fired so it's nice. He's he's been on the organization forever. That seventy eight or something. He's going around seventy nine seventy nine a start in the minor leagues is promoted. The major league staff and eighty six and he's obviously succeeded Gene Monahan in two thousand twelve. He and he won a most distinguished athletic trainer here by the National Athletic Trainers Association. Seems like the the best awards you can get in his apartment. I remember when I was younger. Like I'm a seven or eight. I always thought he was the older one. The Jean Monnet could never just because he was. I'd also get their names wrong. I would say that's that's no idea But that was just obviously when I was very young but they they broke Christie and I mean they. This is as good of a higher. You could possibly make an department. He knows was the way like he the whale. You're talking to Cameron Zilly. WHO's a pitcher who trained over the map lake and he'd just like the the real the tecoma with that interview was how he said he'll put your like it's not like He? He knows how to throw the ball differently. It's that they just they train you in a way A to maximize your physical abilities like they end to not get her and to be safe like Giancarlo Stanton like that guy feel like trains to heart right. I feel that we're talking to Bob Topics about that. He was like. There's almost too much muscle on his body like he has no body fat so it's just like muscle and bone right and that's I think thank. You just doesn't know how to train himself. He tried to go too hard. I think Christie is going to see him be like Yemen just to this Larry. McDonald's it's I don't know if he's going to say that tonight but he's just the way he it just seems everything that's obviously. We don't know the specifics of what he's going to do. And it seems like in this first year the plan is for him to not be crazy hands on so in the Athletic Article Says Christie will plan to spend the year evaluating the current staff and building out the training and strengthening addition departments Which makes me think that he's going to be more of behind the scenes? Just kind of observing everything that's going on here and be like well. That's don't do that that. What are you doing here? Put that down as not going to be like in the dugout every day. I think that's going to be at twenty twenty one thing. It seems like that's that's his plan. Because because you still work with other other people apple to this point right and how yeah. He's also allowed to still work with other. That's very interesting. I don't know how that's actually work. Yeah I don't want I would want him to sabotage apple. Oh you working jd. Martinez today tell them. Oh bleak injury that stinks but I. I'm big fan of higher as good as it's going to get he's like he's basically the the cutting age he's just like cutting edge methods and all that when there was an actual word here bio he focused on and kinesiology Kinsey algae and bio-mechanics Great. I don't know what it means. Those things sound awesome. That's just bring those in and the thing that really shocking to hear the Yankees Twenty nineteen only employed to strength and conditioning coaches which is like probably problem or one that seems like an issue like especially when you have thirty guys hurt like they each have fifteen pliers assigned to them. It's just like we would. We would sit here every what's going on now every every month but what is happening. How maybe some injuries and it was just a coincidence? Well not really only at two straight commission coaches and don't give a fuck like yeah probably the only department want to care about his his health. I would say so. It looks like we're on the right track there. It's a great hire so in terms of Garrett Cole leading Rotschild go bring him out Blake and Air Chrissy. How can you not love this Yankees offseason? Yeah I mean it's gone. I mean aside from losing like Delon indeedy Rome side from losing guys were picked parts the locker room and stuff off. Excuse me it's gone really as well as possible and I'll add now the next part of this of and couldn't be better not all the astros. The Astros investigation is coming to a close will. Probably no I think in two weeks with the. I can't wait for that same. I'm hoping I should be like appointment he should do. I don't know how to be announced but that should be like a live press conference presidential state of the Union work goes on every single channel. ABC NBC knocks. Fox interrupts things right. Exactly so we're they sing lengthy suspensions no players involved which fuck with yeah you. You didn't know players involved. Well that's that's not that's according to players who were interviewed that no players are involved so they could be slow loop. I think they're going to decide. I don't think they they know what they're what the punishment is going to be right now. I think they're taking the think. The investigation is over. The next two weeks is going to be deciding. Okay what can we actually do here. So that would mean I think henches gone the Astros. GM those guys you've gone like why would hope he's gone forever. He doesn't deserve lifetime man. Yeah Guy Unbeliev- Aj hinch got a lifetime man. What I don't want to ever met at the medicine his mug little fucking feace unbelievable? Oh my God it's talking. I don't want to get my hopes up. I'M GONNA expect a one year suspension so that that's what I send the blog is. I'm hoping for lifetime ban but I expect a one year EXPEC. 'cause it has to be so severe. That teams won't think about doing this again because you've got to make an example of the red sox now the next part of this is the red sox obviously other Apple Watch scandal thing in in two thousand seventeen and basically said I think Manfred even I am assurances from the organization and this will never happen again. Guess what they did it the next fucking year to clearly. That didn't work so I think there are. The Red Sox are involved with his new with lettuce article by Evan. drellich crops. bitching moaning about because Drellich used to write for the Red Sox and he thinks his bad blood or whatever their crops trial challenging challenging him the rough and rowdy me. Will I mean it makes a good point here. SAY THAT THE RED SOX basically ignored mobis warning to stop doing this. And everyone's like oh the Yankees turned vaulted. They're cheating. They're not they're not involved. They're not being investigated whose team being investigated using video room and what fifteen sixteen seventeen when there were. There weren't like specific rules right. We're told to style so they did. They stop the stop all the rules. Classy Organization the Red Sox did not stop and the Astros distorted the effort because what they were doing thing is way more advanced worse than what any of the Yankees Red Sox were doing. But it's like the fact fans don't understand that is crazy. This is what happens anytime the red sox get involved. They they get in trouble. They point the finger at the Yankees. Do Right to so what apple watches watches right. They you know they were cheating with Apple. Watch science dealing with watches. You can't fuck and do that using technology and it'll be said don't fuck. Do I believe it's just a fine. That happened I don't think anything else. Crazy crazy half of the punishment there but also they were like Oh Yankees doing it to this. Yes Network Cameron Centerfield now and we'll be investigative. Nothing going on there is it's completely okay. And then they ended up finding us because of improper use of a prior season with a dugout phone where there was nothing bad spoken on the phone. They they just use the phone and you're not allowed to use the phone by accident okay. Don't do that so what we do. We donated money to a charity. That's actually what happened. So and people like oh the Yankees cheated they sign still. No you know then we the fucking story into fucking Shit Yeah. The Red Sox used Apple Watch. Let's let's let's get the facts straight here the Yankees who's he's also the. MLB is not biased. Like you could say whatever people WANNA Lower Evan. Drellich destroyed him. This the investigation on the Red Sox like they would investigate at the Yankees if there was something wrong. It's like you know pro Yankees Anti Red Sox. The Red Sox did something wrong. That's why they're the ones under investigation like it's really not not that hard to comprehend. MLB Says Anti Yankees as possible if they want US investigation. We'd be under investigation. I promise you that if an inkling I'm going to say that I'm going to say they're anti Yankees I'm not saying they're anti anybody pro. Anybody I think if we just look at them as a neutral Fair unbiased party. They're just going to investigate teams. Did something wrong. Talks getting the Yankees art and then like people in the article also Brandon Todman the Assistant Jim who is fire by the Astros apparently in May of two thousand eighteen he he believed the Yankees reaching a camera to zoom on catcher signs. And that was just completely throwing. They're really no nearer allowed us that they were doing. Yeah that's exactly what that's like. Accuse idiot he kind of gave him the like. Oh maybe we investigators with other teams. Well looks like the Astro is doing this but the red sox are under investigation. I don't don't what they're doing. They broke the rules. It's like it's like they. I think it might have been jake store. He's analogy but it was they. It's like they robbed a convenience store and then the astros murdered someone both against law ozzy different severity of breaking the law but both against the law like the the red sox were not doing something. We're doing some. You're not supposed to do so. I don't know we'll see what happens. I don't think anything allergy aura. Just cheating scumbag I mean and I know people are like. Oh the red sox didn't they couldn't use them in the playoffs. Or whatever Blah Blah Blah they wanNA hundred fucking eight games twenty eight like. That's a huge huge advantage of using uh-huh entire regular season able to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs like that matters and that whole twentieth. Wow how are they never make so much contact. They don't start out. Jd Martinez so they know unbelievable. It's like they never that team. Never hit a lull. They hit so good with underscoring position which is makes sense because that's that's how they were relaying when people were amazed but They never suffered any is like what went wrong in that season that everyone kept saying. When is something go wrong in this red sox two thousand eighteen season well wonder why yeah the same with smoke? There's fire might want to dig a little deeper into this investigation. Maybe they were worse than the Astros Astros. Maybe they should be maybe should go to jail. That'd be something matching that maybe even every team I baseball besides the maybe that's why they haven't signed anyone because they just know they're gonNA get fucked they. I think they just are cheap. How about Abbott? What was it yesterday? see Shak Red Sox reliever so badly they have. They've refused to sign a reliever even the last year. They need a really were. They were like not kick seasick. Steve always thought it was just kick idiot but he rose for six dollars. The white sox. The Red Sox can't do that too much money he can't do much for trade movie Erin. Talks with the dodgers. I mean there's nothing uh I mean I think since our last podcast this report came out but it would be price. mookie going to the dodgers and they get like that Syndergaard guy back. That's much then like yeah. I know people like Oh last time the red sox did this they unload is about contracts and one world series the next year. That's the way different. They got fucking Carl Crawford. Josh Beckett that time like this your training trading away a top three player in baseball and mookie Betts and also David price who still a solid pitcher innings eater. And all that I mean you know. Face the Jackie's crumbles but look like planet the rotation action it's what sale with a noodle arm who knows at that. I will ever return to what he can. you've already coming off alost year. You have no idea what that guy is going to be like arm shot. And I don't even know who their number Iran and WHO's the four. Who's your Ford Five? I've legitimately no. Why do you know they have? They have no farm system that's Gong Nebraska. He loves to leave Barron when he gets out of town. So yeah everything's great. I mean this cannot have been a better off-season reason for the New York Yankees they got Garrett Cole rouch Larry Rotschild go new pitching coach. They got a new strengthened. Dishing their overhauling the strength coach department and the Red Sox and Astros are just getting caught cheating last three world series or just tainted twelve to two start last two world series are two of the last two so not too bad. The Yankees and dodgers should just play this off season like a seven game series as for the world series titles of two thousand eighteen and twenty nine hundred. Whoever wins gets both yeah I wonder how like two days off would work if there will be a break in between how it affects normal two route three to one between the series? What do you mean you? I wish there should be multiple serious. What do you say I would just say? One one both series for bowl title. Oh Oh I was going to series one for all the more I mean. We're talking about ratings and how to win baseball back. Maybe doing July instead of the All star break to say fuck the All star working fucked homered. Here's what these guys week and a half off and we're having a the actual midsummer classic like that now randomly distinct bring back to Eric how Man Must Greg Bird be the guy. He just always gets her well. Jacoby thank God I would have got me back on the field I would. It had it would have been the greatest. They should've kept a Koby Ellsbury just to see how good this guy was like. If you could get your Koby Ellsbury pack on the field like God. He's like like that but like what do we want that. No but like it would just it would have just shown how good yeah. Yeah for. Sure but Greg Birds Gabby nearly all fuck one guy who could have helped. Gene stopped getting hurt with every single piece of. What is Greg Bird status? I just feel he posted on his instagram. Someone said that's me a couple of days ago just hitting the ball and like it was like like a winky Emoji or whatever it's like all right cool and I think the second he took two swings out of the cage is this first one look like solid contact. The second was definitely thoubal. It's like without question I would not be shocked if he goes more productive year. Greg bird like the royals. Yeah that was the exact team. Yeah he's he's a perfect royal. I can't see him actually anywhere else. Red Sox I mean interesting Another thing with like this whole cheese gallon pugh pointed everyone. Dave starts to run down yesterday with The the Yankees cheated US classic Dave playing into us. Well you didn't speak up. I the scream from like he jen. I actually don't even know what some trolling I think. He genuinely thought that was the case lighting literally just ride crops headline could see that he also said you'll he knows about this because of my blog so like right now Biennale Yeah No red SOx fans I mean. They're not going to have much this year. Murder them nothing this year and I were shooting scandal. Yeah I also love anyone. WHO's like the Yankees go to go? Look at any of our swings on sliders. The last three years like look at look at you and Carlos. Stan look Gary Sanchez located Aaron Judge. They have no fucking idea. What's coming? None they miss balls by ten feet. Ed Win The looked like he did no idea to play baseball. We're the most innocent people in the world. We play the game the fair right way. We're just down to needs to investigation. They know one Gary Sanchez up. They're like no. We don't know these no idea what's coming. It's just like move on. We play the game the right way. We're GONNA play the rest of the way the right way to one hundred and fifteen games on our own next coming up ear and to me hilarious and the Astros in red sox beginning punished but draft picks and suspensions and all that man. It'd would be great if Alex Cora got suspended out. Fuck that'd be he's a smug kind of as Aj hinch such a Dick. What was his fucking? What's one line about Louis? Staffer Quality Start Start.

Maybe he's figuring the defense out out this off season. I'm just not ready to give up on. I also him and glacier so tight like I think he makes he makes Kleber happier and I just want to be like the new member Milkin Canal. Oh how close they were like. Just young guys like milky was like nowhere near as good as these not I love my favorite Yankee vaults very clutch but talent how it was nowhere near Cassino. No nobody Lebron fucking or is it really as close to glacier is because is an flavors are so fucking good but I love. I love seeing out there throwing hand. I feel like he's he's GonNa try and refuse to be wally pipped. And that'll be great. 'CAUSE GIO is really good and he's really good and we'll see we'll see a battle that's GonNa be a fun spring training battle if as long as they are still here. That's GonNa be the one. Because last year it was bird versed Voi- very seriously like voight one out and that's what we're focused on. What's Kinda got to get his at bats? But they're both GonNa make the roster right. There's no saving to harm herself right. But it's just GonNa be interesting this if Anna comes out here and just to cover off the baseball right holy Shit like here we go and honestly who knows that could boosts trade value may be treated Gio. Here's value is moving around the Infield more selden Andrew Harding so I I think it'll it'll work. I hope so. I hope so. I Swan One more reliever. I don't know who that reliever is but I just want one more and I was kind of Dan Hudson goes back through nationals would love Dan Hudson That didn't work out. Nestle signed everyone fucking insane. Who they are? They're dame's and fucking every other they'll be back. Also Joe Girardi sees rarely they just painted. They're just such an asshole like we get it man. You like the guys on the team. When when you coached Yankee Signs Ryan Toria so minor league deal with Major League? Invite a come on man come on Dick Already Got Didi and who did get anywhere else. D- they were talking to talking to Romani. Matanzas Puts Click Ronnie. Take our whole heart. Come on trying to think of who else there is out there that they could that he could grab that would even hell. That would hurt me. David David Helfgott EH trade for now. Oh my God. If he traded for free well he didn't have a thing with us right right right they never overlapped. Imagine they get bird. Let him have him bird bird Chris Byrd with him and he had the Andrew Miller Homerun God damn it. Yeah please go there There's one more thing. Oh this city zips projections are as accurate as can be. There's value as a worm talking about as a respected as can be and they did a little zips projections. This is this guy. I'm never going to pronounce his last name. Dan Size Szymborska. Let's pretend that's exactly how it was. But he projected glazed over the next five years and these aren't just. These aren't predictions. There are like oh like if the fences moving one hundred feet this. What's going to happen? This is is just right now. How good he is the trash on? So twenty twenty cooking at forty one homers and a nine five S. Take it okay. That's my much shortstop. Twenty twenty one forty four homers. Nine forty-five opiates take it. Twenty twenty to forty four homers. Nine forty three Oh. PM Take it. Twenty twenty three forty seven homers nine sixty one opium ticket and twenty twenty four forty seven homers nine sixty one zero PS ticket. I mean what are we. That's over two hundred home. I don't like as much as I love Kleber. Those are like absurd protection oser in saint four seven home runs. I don't know I mean I mean he hit what thirty eight this year ended up with this year. He's getting better. He gets better every year. He's you know he's only going to get more powerful and he's GonNa Find fine-tune his body more and maybe if has any work with him he he's like Oh yeah you could also add this to your body bigger better more yet. Thirty Shing yet. Thirty eight ninety with a Eight eight seventy one opium. So He's right there in the opium right there in the department. I mean you have to believe that he's done being the Yankees like seven or eight hitter. Yeah he needs to be the three-hitter or the to kind of could be done with judges the two hitter. I think you keep what who is. He has to be the Louis Elite officer this year. Dj Dj oh. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's not moving true. J I just why do they have. Why is Aaron Judge? Judge Half hitter. I just think because I know he's gets on base Kleber towards the twitter you Aaron judge drives in Dj Labor. What seems pretty easy to me? Yeah I guess it doesn't. It doesn't really matter. I I don't know I could. I could see Joel. Judge gets on Bee's more than gleyber but you also got the power drive jingle. Yeah I mean Aaron Judge Ideally would have more power labor tours fair. Yeah I don't know I wish I would. Each judge. Guber is such a fucking ridiculous top three in the lineup and then all of their. If they're in there top forms and then thrown voight a healthy people. Forget how good Luke. Voight wasn't the first half now. I want you to forget. But that man wasn't he was starting first baseman. In the offline. Like London series. He was was a monster. He was unbelievable. Goddamn and he'll be back back and better than ever one more thing before the DM's feel like there's a few packer fans. Who are Yankee fans across over this podcast? Probably like five of you. Because it's just weird crossover packers play the seahawks this Sunday in the NFC the Divisional round there believes the six forty. Start Sunday's weird usually in the divisional round is always one in four thirty. I agree when I saw six forty and Sunday. They'd already usually do that for the conference. Champion I said that to my friends and no one sending them back to me so I assumed I was wrong but I'm glad you said it always always wanted for. Yeah Yeah but anyways Six forty start. We're do electric chair in the in the I can't think right now in the office I was I. I thought you were going to say something. I don't know it was such a simple thing. I just couldn't forget the rest symbols wanting to see a doctor. So it's me Liz Wipe E. and they'll be believe special guest. I don't want to announce it on the show because I don't know when we're officially announcing so I don't WanNa do that. Put a foot amount. There'll be a special guest who does not work at parcel sports. I believe there which would because But yeah tune in sports bets livestream Barstool sports livestream You'll get to see me. Dis Russell Wilson probably stabbed me in the fucking heart. Because I can't escape this fucking guy people were like. Why do you hate Russell Wilson? He's a Yankee. No yes would be. That guy is responsible for so much of my misery. Packer the Packer Fan. She's only in the playoffs. Once it was that was the brandon bostick. Don't remind me of that. Twenty Four. That's one of the worst nights of my life I got oh God that was they. Were up twelve with five minutes to go in the ball thing to end the superbowls. They're I like Russell Russell Wilson but I I have on the packers. I have a pet with smitty. Yeah I made it before. The season started. I disliked him this year. Packers to make the super bowl full seven and a half to one seven hundred seven hundred fifty dollars if they make the Super Bowl I give him a hundred if they don't and then I have a future on my book thirty to win. Four fifty for them to verbal Holy Shit. Yeah but I'm thinking about hedging with so right now the forty niners minus one twenty on On you know wherever they go betting has done So that's what I'm thinking if I put one hundred twenty on the I think it's either on me the niners packer to the Super Bowl. They don't see the Vikings are hawks. I think he's going to give them a game. I didn't think show originally put. That team is rolling. They're gonNA have on here so I think if I put like a hundred we just twenty to win a hundred than I could cover myself with. s- MINNIE's bed. Okay and I'd still win over six. I don't hate that. I mean I don't do. I think they're going to go into San Francisco and win. No I don't think get blown out like the last thing it'd be much. They were like that game this year. I mean th the game over two three three two eight or was it was it was. He's insane it was on the less. The other went out. West was the chargers that was one of the worst games to ideally air. Raj in the playoffs. He I realized that it seems like the last time Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs. You guess when it was let me think was it. Was it the game. They played against the cardinals roles. No no those. We're in culture that well let's think they weren't in the past couple of years right so the twenty sixteen season. Seventeen so two thousand seventeen. It was the falcons the twentieth. Your team they got blown out right they all say like twenty four hours. They play the cardinals finals the week before. That was the cowboys. The Jared Cook. Catch a crazy gotcha on. Hr Cook Catholic. who was the the receiver he threw the pass to? I gave Carnegie Janice Right Jeff Janice Yeah it was. There was to help beers in the drive right right from the wall. Street ended. Larry fitness steals my heart car. But Yeah it's that Falcons game seems like he was ten years ago. But you have to remember it. Aaron Rodgers turns do different guy so I'm excited packers CEO breaking. That's GONNA be easily. I think the best game of the forty inch. Yeah I think the chiefs chiefs Texans GonNa be. I could destroy the Texans. The Texans beat Kansas City city in Kansas City. This year. It's a different. I know they weren't rolling right now. Kansas City and then I think Baltimore is going to destroy Tennessee although shadow anthony from an Alpine for single gladly ending the Patriots Dynasty harbor boy. And then what's the other game I think the niners fighting's will actually be better than people think so to will be good but clearly the packers seahawks is going to be war. Russell said never one in Lambo before Owen. Three did not believe that you could tell me seven. Oh okay yeah sure does that means do probably okay. Let's go to DMT before we go. DM's TJ your two minutes of Rucker's. You can talk about. Yeah I wanted to shout to Andhra the hammer who responded to our request for DMZ tweet which is ranked rutgers was a big night last night. Big Birthday Week for me. My birthday's tomorrow. Oh happy birthday birth. Yeah hit a ten point shot in the league. Twenty three okay Jordan near laboratory correct. We'll be the same age helps as the Dow to the PODCAST. Yep He's twenty before Harrison extensive But yeah it was a big week for rutgers and we're here gives me wreck if we'd Illinois on Saturday we'll be ranked on the others relative among votes last week now I mean if they beat Illinois Yoko from Novo to being ranked Illinois powerhouse like they have an okay year right. They're like they're they're a team as well. We're tied for second in the big ten right now. which is something that we have never been able to say? Well how many games there were three one. They're they're decent. I actually was wondering last night where Corey Sanders was. I thought he for sure He. He's in the G. League. I couldn't believe who has a very recently. He's back in the West playing in the. The country of Georgia wants to the big ten tournament like two years ago leave yet. MSG They they play purdue they lost right but they gave him like a good game sanders. WHO's the other guy they had gio baker was there he was hurt in this Gabriel? Yeah he's I watch. I took rockers records. Eight years is a good second half Yeah Syracuse. I don't they were five point favorite last night. I have no idea why they should be. They were they. were up a little bit in the game. A and they wind up losing belly. A their fucking awful fact. He was in Virginia Tech. They've they played eight teams. I believe in the top one hundred drew like VPI. It's both of you guys can shut the fuck up because after route for foreign basketball which is worse program in the company records last year. Yeah that's fair all right. Let's let's go to DMZ okay before we wrap on the other team. I adopt though. Grew up right there. And they're actually legit. You have three teams. The three schools applied to for college. Syracuse Rutgers Saint. John's I cho- circuses. Didn't even visit circuses. Chose it it. It I D M from Brad case at Brad underscore CASO He said Fuck Mary. kissel red SOx Astra's mets. Who married to any of these teams will fucking hurt me I I i? I'm just not doing this. I'm just refusing cheaters. So you probably don't WanNa marry either of them. I don't know what to say killing Red Sox I'm I'm GonNa Answer 'cause I'm not a pussy killing the red sox you just can't do any other situations with the reds marrying fucking. The Red Sox killing the Red Sox I don't give a F- I don't hate the mets as much as you. Because they're so relevant eleven and there's such like a piss ant organization like I just step on them so I guess I'll marry the mets and I'm fucking the Astros because it means I'll have to be with the least amount of time. I think that's the only answer I think. That's I think that's at least that they they make garrick So now Gary Cole- scope with us in. Thanks I guess but fuck you you also L.. Hate fuck them. That's going to do a hate. Fuck the Astros Yup. I can't do it. That's the only way to answer that those three ways that there's no other way around if you answer a different way wrong. The next one's from Adam chip he said in the ninth season of Kohl's contract. What do you think are starting rotation will be? We'll have eight rings that'd be Cool Coal Severino Right. 'cause I mean well. He is seven years six years left this towel over nine years nine years. So so twenty. Twenty nine King Clark Schmidt Debbie the odds of them all stopping their small but one hundred. Would we supposed to pick fucking like fifteen year olds whose names we. I don't see Sabathia Sun maybe That'd be something or map. Lake Lake just like concocts like an allied assigning organization somewhere. Somebody's son they drafted somebody nephew or some shit like last more than nephew all did L.. Let her son is. I don't believe I think he's a top top prospect. It would just be awesome if like the next generation of Yankees was like a couple of familiar last names or I in the organization so yeah hundred percent Next One's from Evan Done Tov. He said over under point five if player acquisitions that will be on the final twenty six between now and opening day twenty six. I always forget BIC Jacqueline later. Nineteen by the way it was right. He's not they have to worry about a three person bench. Although say how many new people will be acquired that right over under a half. A player acquired wired between now and opening over. We're gotTA reliever. Yeah they're gonNA get a really. I think the real often be one and a half do they. Add like another middle infielder right. That was I was GONNA. I say I'm going to say it's what I think they get a reliever then everything else before from within. Do you think it's hater or nothing. I think it's a name we're not thinking of. I think you hate or go somewhere. It's the Yankees. I don't seem going anywhere else. Does Not giving up. And I don't know why. Why the brewers one I mean I know they do because obviously the the offense but they have he has put a film? It's like he needs to be at the age of feel like anywhere. It goes I'm going to take the I'm going to start the new around under one and a half and I'll go the over. I think they get a middle infielder. Summer I'm going to take the under Tolan half I'll take the over if it's a half last one this one's from T- silver one-two-three said with bullpen arms. Being so much like kickers in the NFL one good year one bad year do you expect anyone in our bullpen to regress this year. If so who do you think I'm worried. It might be out of. He had a really bad ending to last year. That would be the leading candidate. I feel like though like is going to work with him to figure out all this shit he was great return. The regular season was just a playoffs. and He's kind of had playoff issues before when Colorado so maybe it's just a thing with him but like green regressed to start this year but seems like he could it be keenly shooting up though soak up I mean he he had in the past. I mean the answer do Chapman you but I don't see him regressing till like where he's bad we'll we say that's it had to be that type of that sort of but I was just like a power pitcher like him. Every year he gets older earlier. Yeah no that's fair. Possibility of regressing gets higher and higher. Because the guy rely so much on his fastball like it his fastball is average festival drops to fucking ninety seven miles on our. That's not the same pitcher he's GonNa regress that way and he's not gonna be able to get people out as much I feel like he's the highest candidate and I'm easily most concerned with him because I would have. I could've walked well I could have been convinced to walk away with him. This off season Weight from him. But so I'M GONNA go. Chapman I hope not. I think Hanley's good to go make. Britain will be fine. It's going to be Britain's Britain's get better I feel like every year now Out of you know it'll be fine. Green will be fine and my recipe goes to the big five and no Delon Alan. Right Right Yeah so my could be cabin if I have the pick one hopefully not. Hopefully that's like two years from now I'll say I I guess my final answer would be between green or keenly. I'll say Tommy Canley. Okay all right. I Love Them. But it's just like we have seen that regression with him before are refuse to Saco Tummy Kelly's ever regress By the way I said this during the Eagles game I would pay to see a live feed of him watching that game the eagles game because he's such and also probably would have been ready to fucking killed. Cloudy though. Yeah Aaron booms at Xfinity also which is like the big Bar Out In philly decks head to Toe Eagles Gear Joe. It was a weird thing to see him. And you ask you about. He is a huge eagles fan. But yeah that's it for the show hopefully next time you hear from us The Astros are in jail and and red SOx jail worker. The Go 'cause we can't hit slaughter so I can't really Really gets there. This report should see your next week. John Sterling you've been listening to short porch byproduct of Barstool sports five.

Episode 83: With Tyler Wade Who Should Be On The Big League Roster

"The. Our Todd five to go the Bosnian love these Aaron Boone the leader his first of the game. He's. Just to the first what's up? What's happened? Welcome to another mission of the short porch presented by Marshall's sports. I'm your host alongside me on the other side of the laptop Mike goes, the clauses, the cloud. Tommy smokes stops Kelly. What's going on? What's up? You can now add sixty minutes news correspondent the tagline of things introduced me as as wild expect that now I knew I actually watching the games earlier in the day in. So that thing my dad was I wonder if you'll be on. Now, there's no way in filming. No. Well that one you're the one the main one they showed was from September must've just took an old video. And then there was a brief shot. Now. I didn't see them filming the no one. The happened though is nice watch the Mets great. I this is the worst physically I've felt in my entire life right now. I don't know what's going on. I I drink gin last night. I really don't do that ever. So maybe it has as a partner parliament. But my right knee hurts so much. I don't know what the hell. I would that. I might just be just a combination of being drained from this college basketball weekend watching like every game set your bird making those noises. From like five rooms away. You heard that I'm here. Yeah. A fucking year. That's all I was. Is it that bothering Shaikh close the door? I would close it. Yeah. Fuck I think people want to listen to your bird entire podcast. Okay. But yeah, I feel terrible. So this is a true Jordan flew game. So we're rolling Florida or not win guys. We're following that I had a chance to go to Vegas this weekend. Probably for the best that it didn't go since my head is like this. Andy Anki started Thursday salad kind of that would really been. I would have been that guy. You know, like streaming the Yankees at a Vegas Cabada will and not care about like really hot girls around us in alcohol over the place. I would just be streaming Yankee. So I would have been a miserable person to be on that trip with urban cool have the short porch tandem there, but you'll have to carry the load. Yeah. Was written for you. Well, actually, I was kinda room for it. But I also had Michigan minus five and a half. So I wasn't that hard for my own mama's Michigan in the funnels. And she was like, yeah. This room for my bracket. I had buffalo to the final four. So today was a massive hit. Nice nice on they came close. Yeah. Yeah. Those those tight do game was wild. I saw that. My brackets in pretty good shape. I have UNC being do. And then I think if UVA also in there some and and Virginia winning so for junior wins. I could still be in decent shape because they don't think too. Many people have them winning when more people have Dukhan UNC, my player pool looks great. I'm related see mine on the third, but I have seven of my guys to left, and if Irvine winds tonight, I'll be massive. But I had Brennan Clark at thirty six points. That was unreal. But yes, so let's get we're really wasn't much talk about until like today today a lot of should happen. So. Elfin the room Tyler Wade's our guest on the show we recorded it in spring training in a barbershop. And I mean, he was a fucking luck to make the team stone cold lock just he's having a great spring. Everyone was raving about him. And then he other day then on Saturday. We require we acquire this. Mike talk men guy who hand up here. I got no fucking idea who this guy is. No did. Yeah. I mean like it's like, oh, you'll fall baseball. You'll fall dude that I've never heard this personally suppose the outfield. He's really had minimal at bats. They're kinda just trying to see if it can find the void magic again with an outfielder. And I think Hicks being out for what looks like it will be longer than just the Detroit. You know, he won't be back in the Detroit series isn't played in any games. So they think that will be that'd be longer. So they wanna real outfielder out there ellsbury won't be ready. They don't really I don't why they won't go with Clinton Clinton the guy here, but maybe clinch Clinton pay fueled. He's just a left fielder. But this guy talk when since third season he's got a career ninety four batting average. You know, nothing nothing. Good is mine numbers are really good. It's three twenty hitter. Twenty homers, also vases last year gets a speed. So I don't know they're trying they got this guy over and. I don't know two point. Oh, yeah. But I mean, it sucks. It really sucks your weight. I mean, dude is a lock the roster literally got announced today. And is that's just the big shell shock that. And you'll you'll hear how he talks. I mean, you know, we it's like the interviews. You know, everything he says it's about spring training. How good it? You know, how good he's feeling, you know, with the vibe of the team is like as that will tell you how much Schalke's in today because you'll you'll hear how big he was. And it's just crazy. I mean, just doesn't make any sense to sucks. I'll we're we're big tolerate guys. Obviously he's and he's so good looking and you'll hear how I said that know staring at times during interview. But as weird I mean, nothing that's my talking. Whatever. But wait should be. I agree in a people are gonna maybe say, oh, this is the fourth port curse. I don't like to think that way, you know, outta motive knows doing doing well, drums Burling oughta vino if out of, you know, some Hamm's them, we must cancel podcast. Yeah. That would be tough. But no, I mean, I think tolerate if you're looking for one guy to blame. And I use the word blame kind of loosely because you can't prevent an injury. But it's out Hicks. Just basically his injury. A weird way did sort of lead to tolerate on making a team because him hurt you need another true center fielder. You have Gardner out there. But we wanna play judge or Stanton out there. So this guy talked however, you say is name is the reason, you know, they wanna have him. It's our feel they feel more comfortable him his experience in center field in Wade. He doesn't really have any experience center field. So I sort of get it from that perspective. But it just does suck that. That you know, Wade is the victim of something that really was out of his control. He did really well spring. I don't know what to do at this point right injury to another guy doesn't open up spot for him. But actually takes away in a weird way. So just sucks while we're his you have quotes up their review 'em. He was not happy. He let people know it now. So these are all from Eric Boland on Twitter tolerates that he was blindsided by the news is being sent down just the perform this bring did everything they asked me to do. I played. Well, I made the judgment offensively. Now. It's my defense. That's not good enough. I wouldn't use the word on fair. I'm just as appointed. I did everything I could possibly do the show. I belong to the big leagues to help this team. I just know Mabel to play the outfield I've done this for three years now. So if that's the issue, I don't know what the problem is. Then he said someone said doesn't make it feel any better that Boone says we'd will likely be in the big league at some point this season. He said anything to make me feel better right now to be honest with you also said that told after today's. Game. He still sounded. He was still sound the summit said after the game. Oh, you still sound pissed and Wade replied, very one more from Wade. It just blindsided me. I didn't know what to say. I wasn't expecting whatsoever as very excited to get up there in New York, and do whatever I could help this team when just disappointed that's all. I like candy is ID frustrating to especially like, you know, like like I said what else can he possibly do? I guess the analytics team just thought talking guys got a better potential. You know, the love their Stephen all that. So it sucks Phil deal. I don't have announced last name. He was in a trade. He wants the Rockies. And he said he thought the trade was a prank because he cut CC in the line for haircut in the morning, and he had to ask if this was for real. I didn't see that. Did why did cut Cici? Good. I'm glad he's straight. He can't be cutting CeCe. He's he's in high end AA K like combined two five year decent pitcher. But yeah, he was the guy the trade. So here's what they say about talk men should his struggles the play continue to Diglis. He still offers a position fuck. Flexibility remain viable backup in crowded outfield. Yes. I mean, they really just like his defense. I guess that's pretty much. What comes down to so? Sucks. I mean, we're seeing tolerate soon. I'm sure, you know, maybe don't blame. We'd for nut reaction. I mean, there's some people on Twitter being like, oh, this is immature. Whatever else. I mean, come on. This is what you'd expect? I want a guy who wants to be up there. I want a guy who wants to be up there and winning. I'm sure tomorrow once he has time to settle down. Probably, you know, be more levelheaded walked back a few of the things not walked back. But he just won't be probably as candid. But I mean in heat of the moment. Yeah. That's what I want. I want a guy who's passionate about wanting to be playing in winning. Yeah. Sucks Boone at the Tele. Because you know, they're probably wasn't his decision. No that that's a that's upper managing. That's the only analytics team, you know, that's not easy to. I mean, that's Boone's job Boone religion do much each time. Just a face behind all the moves so communicator right with that we pretty much have set roster. So we're looking at Tanaka Paxton hap- her mind and probably see I think they said they're gonna start CC. On the roster. So he can have his five five suspension kinda, you know, just go away quick. And then it looks like her mind is going to be. So her mom is going to be that starter the takeover for Chevy. There's any could be sort of an opener, which I mean, I don't understand what that means. Really? When you're talking about a guy like her mom, I mean, he's only going to be an opener if he's bad they taken out early. You know what I mean? I don't know. Yeah. Her mom was reportedly beaming when he walked out of Boone's office on Saturday said today that is improved. Curveball made all the difference sharper. Now has big bite the way in twenty seventeen. So he said so good for him on. We know he has potential to be pretty fun. Good. I think he has he has a lot of tools to be an exceptional pitcher. So I like that really good last year. We forget that sometimes, but he showed some real flashes of brilliance last year and I'm excited to finish humorless. Got lost in the shuffle a little bit in the off season. But I'm excited to have him back in the he could have a big year. Yeah. He he was in a way like kind of forced into his role as you know, he he was probably not ready when he was called upon. So maybe like a full offseason your belt yet, you're experiencing guy. Good spring. So that can factor. There's a lot of potential her mom for sure that's probably good news for sesame people looks like he won't be a starter for Sesa haters because he probably won't be a starter. It looks like it'll be. Along man, maybe Sesic could be involved in some sort of opener situation. But the rest of the roster Chapman Britain green holder Canley ought to be no Tarpley in Sessa. Good for Todd Tarpley and give up a run in spring. So he impressed people and good to see time. Mccamley. I mean, that's I love Kevin Kelly's like job reincarnate in terms of like the fire. He brings in his festival up the ninety eight big things expected for gatlin very excited for that Sanchez enroll mine and Har bird LeMay who Torahs to ski voice so bird envoy that looks like they're both getting on with the whole hick situation, at least for now that could be who knows how long that's gonna be an around out gardener judged in and talk, man. Pretty much. What you expected minus, you know, no way. But I think otherwise, no total surprises. I mean, we'll see so CC's going to start on the he'll start suspended and then off to go to the DL. Right. And they'll probably bring up I think Johnny lasagna. They've said us we'll see how they end up Canadian that. But otherwise, I mean. Yeah. Wade is the big surprise crazier. I think we pretty much knew for awhile wasn't gonna end up making it a bad spring. Yeah. He's got. Yeah. So we'll see what happens when Hicks comes Hicks. Coming back may. I don't know the Hicks coming back bring wait along with them somehow. While you're probably going to send down void or bird that right, right? So this this competition is over yet. It's getting continue. So now, we'll really see bird was fucking with us. Because now is competition extends into the real season. This is when he's really sucks April. He hates April. So yeah, I guess I. I don't know if Wade surly it would make sense. I mean, maybe talk depends what talk does. But who knows how many at bats were she'd get low on six gets back talk when get sent down. But I'm wondering if you know Hicks will be activated for talk men. But I'm wondering if that if Wade then finds himself a place on the roster. They feel keys more if they feel like with Hicks back we provide more value to the team than say, Greg bird. We'll say this is what happens when you too many outfielders Cashman. He on right after we've so meals feelers. But yes, so on pump for pumper Tarpley and Canley 'cause I don't know. Tarpley wasn't a lock to make the make the bullpen. But I mean the God pitches ass off in spring over continues. Nice lefty arm. I like his stuff a lot. I'm big Tarpley guy and Canley. Yeah. Like, I said very happy for him. So that's the roster. Anything else crazy long with that note? Yes away. Right. Sorry. I'm trying to just like thickening loud here because my head is fucking splitting. Although the Advil is helping so that's positive. Yeah. Like you said is going to join the rotation. So let's get into this. This kind of I saw this on the tweets came out on March twenty first I didn't see them then because it's from a smaller account, but the guy who wrote the book classic, you know, about their Jeter and all that it's clock hours at Aetna idea. He was on the Michael case show. He drops them. Fucking knowledge man drops shit. This is all real I'm we're gonna go through him as a whole thread. So I guess we can will both like the end of everyone will say real or not real. Because some of these things are crazy. The first one Girardi was fired because he didn't push eating communicate. Well and had some back pushback against analysts. I think that's very true thing. That's. That's seven. Bone rarely makes any decisions as the analytics team set up right in the dugout tunnel. True true too. That's true. I didn't realize they write in the tunnel. That's pretty yet. I didn't know either. It's almost like we would almost wonder that like how does he make in game decisions? You know, like, but I that's how I mean if they're literally right there. He probably just goes tunnel tells exactly what to do pretty well. He's just a puppet he's a puppet to a house puppeteer number three Steinbrenner wanted to move the Yankees out of the Bronx to the Upper West side. That's where he wanted the new stadium built. I mean that's fucking wild. Yeah. That's I believe that too. I mean, I think. That crazy to think about like, the Bronx bombers would be what the upper Upper West side bombers, but ended up saying we were that were we were they play where you all you building stadium. The upper side is the area the city. I'm least familiar with same. I mean, I'm kind of honestly re-sent west to me or everything's everything's all the most you you tell me like is. I have a few friends that live up race affect here about the three side. I think Upper West side is very insecure rich people with their kids. I still struggle with. What is on the west any like, what is the east and west side, again just have. No, I know it's park right about. Oh, just in the city. I think Minna general you have trouble with west. No, no, no. I don't use them. What some in the city. I mean the park. Yeah. Right. It's like the park west the parka is the worst thing that I figured that out. But he wanted to see built in the in the Upper West side together Bronx he said, he didn't he didn't feel safe in the Bronx. Yes. This is probably the craziest one of anything George almost sold the Yankees to the fucking dollas. Are you kidding? He almost ran. That was known. I think really. Yeah. I think that was like a while not to known. But like, I think fifteen or so years ago people remembered the discussions, but yeah, I don't I don't know. People knew how the details. Everything George Steinbrenner does running New York sports with the Knicks Rangers and Yankees. Yeah. As part of the deal, he would have control all those teams, which is insane. Glad that did not happen thinking about how different the Knicks would be. I mean. Yeah, they'd probably be. Good. The probably won't be. Let's see the author's the book knew that the Yankees weren't signing. Harper Machado back in October when they view the front office. I think that's a little bullshit. The certain I I think they offered Chano money. He just didn't take it. I mean, they had no idea not Tober who they were getting. Probably just means that when they were talking their plans about the off season the front office probably said, yeah will will kick the tires, but they're not playing planning. Yeah. That's probably true. That's fair. Numbers seven the key part of booths funny. The key part of Boone's interview for the managerial job was to correctly put together the analytics team the team the analysts wanted plainly just looking at the numbers without any names tests. At some even angel earth for make up what? Said I believe it 'cause it's too sir to make up. Yeah. That sounds like it's almost like a a math problem or something. I mean, like something on the SAT, ACT, whatever. And it's just like, oh, look at these numbers put them in the order that works dust, and that's what Boone did to get to coach the. Yeah. That's fucking crazy. I don't know. I guess. Yeah. You have to get like who mix it up. You're right. Giancarl San suffered major nerve damage in his face and had major psychological issues if they're getting hit in the face of Miami. He says that every hitter loses the ball in the final eight feet of flight when that happens, you have no idea. What's go? I believe that. Yeah. About the eight feet losing the ball of. Yeah. Explains. Why the slaughter every time? But the nerve damage and psychological issues. I see that like you get hit like that you almost like die. I would like have nightmares of like pitches. Going by my face. I would hate that. That was one of my biggest one of the biggest reasons I wasn't like a better baseball players to free to get hit by the ball. So fide actually got hit in the face or something probably would even more of a policy. I would go through like weird phases. Where? What's the word? Involuntary out. Involuntary action reactions were I would like my front foot with step out. Like, I would just it would Ranya happen. Like, I would get hit in Ramle. I would like have my foot in the bucket, which is so bad as a hitter eventually get let it would just shit. They're like, I couldn't shake sometimes George Steinbrenner agreement with David Johnson to manage the Anki doesn't to he also wanted to fire Tori, again after four I could see that. I feel like each one the fire tour after every time they lost the game. Number all twenty seventies. Yeah. I'm going through quick. All okay. The cash Lopes the shop discount band. I could see that. Cashman saved towards multiple times in fell absolutely betrayed by Tori. After Tory wrote his book the Yankee years, I see that. That's that's definitely true. Cashman is most powerful man in baseball. The Yankees have the biggest team analytical team by far analysts just has much say in trade discussions as Cashman K. This this book seems like it's main like there's a lot of cash ran stuff at that's what I'm taking away. One of my main takeaways? Yeah. For sure they think judging the face the Yankees he'll be Yankee for life. Absolute will be the next cap. The next years organization love with him. He loves New York good Cashman decided the fire Girardi after Sanchez was benched in their feud reached the media after his benching nothing was gonna save. Joe? Interesting. Was the Cleveland series? They must be referring to the the regular season. Not the playoffs. Right. The one where he didn't hustle at the dope label. Yeah. Ten game. This is the one that made me feel sad Girardi was absolutely shocked by his firing after being eliminated by Houston. Joe Cain the cash with ideas, the twenty eighteen season Cashman, cut him off fired him on the spot Girardi called Hal in tears house said I stand by catchments. That is so sad. That's so sad like poor Joe nicest guy in the world just like we should time. This guy this guy. We're gonna put him here note your fire before you can fish the sentence. That sucks that. But as we'll see from the later point. I think it was the right decision. Right. Any? Skipped few year unsafe someplace started the two Gerardi out and felt like they didn't connect the teen feeling start is back as far back as twenty eleven. His message quickly grew stale could see that's going to naked see that. Selling parking lot. That's relevant. So part of the dole in the Georgia sold eighty percent of the Yankees to the dolans return. He become the managing general partner of all three Yankees next Rangers. You're staying. Cashman did not plan on trading for Stanton and took great joy having all leverage over jeeter cash. Jeeter. Just luck hate each other. It's very obvious Stanfield fell Rienzi. He's lab yet. Something surprising. Chase Headley was originally in the stand deal. But then they get cash because I knew that glacier in the wings. He was the guy that care about Castro. Boone has the right to go rogue and go with his against the analytics, but he better be right or else he'll be on the island by the front office. It's incredibly whether he ever goes, his gut. Staying knots. Very inter-. I wonder what I wonder what decisions he went with that were Scott last year. If there were any, right? Yeah. What would make him decide to say? I'm going with my gut. Right. I have no idea. The Yankees pay full college education for every that signs them knowing that ninety percent of them will never reach the majors whether the classes franchisee sports yet we look out. We just want everyone to be educated had that college degree. You know, things are some things are bigger than sports. These days. Cashman has major PTSD from went Shortridge around. Oftentimes, George would call him first thing in the morning to scream at him about something Cashman does not seek headlines like George in wind Girardi guaranteed feud made headlines it was the final straw for Joe. And last thing we knew this the main job of the managers in the face of the game of to be the face for the in game decisions at the analytics determine Boone's main job is to the good with the media in present the reasons for the decisions that are made. So he's just a giant PR person. These shogun like the are you familiar with Japanese history. No, do I look like somebody's later with Japanese sister. I might be a term wrong. But I remember in school. It's like the person who is looks like they have the power, but is really just a face for the actual decision makers. Okay. Well, if you felt that anybody with that, you know, didn't Japanese apologize Tommy's, probably probably. Yes. This are that was I was just run through those found those barrier. Fastening reading through them. Some good news before we get to Wade, Severino. Played catch on Sunday big step from ninety feet next one hundred twenty feet Boone's. Encourage said the right direction say was a day. Kashmir had said on an interview that main might might be might may just target. But he could be back in April. If things like progress the way they should. So this is good. I mean, we haven't heard pain from him in a little bit. I think we're almost worried about Hicks Severino. This plant. Yeah. Probably more important as Severino. But I think injury wise. His a back injury is just. Yeah. That should that should could just linger linger liquor, and he really hasn't gotten better. So that's not good. That being said that we got Nick green from dieback zero five graph don't really know much about him. And yeah, we'll get into way right now. So we are in the barbershop Tommy massively fucked up the debt, I kill it. But before and now, he's very cool cut it down. So I'm not good at that. Settle before. It's very difficult. I never know which way to go. It the release Wendy released. You do the back, Pat. It's there to complicate. I like I like an ice and shake. It's a lot of improv. And you're not very good at it. So exactly we should almost do their next viral video should be the the art of the death. Yeah. Maybe. But yes, so let's get Tyler Wade. You know is what it is should happens. You know when you do this spring. I mean, I thought for if you told me back then two weeks ago like weights contains like what what happened or what do you mean? So should happen. He'll be back soon very positive upbeat guy. I think you'll enjoy the interview and here is Tyler Wade. All right. We're here. Now live with in a barbershop with the most handsome man to major league baseball tolerate tolerate. What's going on? But was that. So we live right now. We're live. Well, live on the show. All I got life is life. Full-swing and spring training right now. So it feels good to be back with the boys for sure. So you just came from like the Dame. Basically how has that? How is like your day work off Asian and shit? Like that just explain like what what today was like. Yeah. I mean the day off today so a little bit more more of a hectic day for me out a lot of work to do. Obviously, I'm playing a lot of missions outside been working at all my days off, I'm basically touch about every single position. So I stayed Chris tomorrow plant second side, more one more workers. I second today. But no, spring training is kind of a grind, man. You know, we're up early today was a night game. Thank god. But even even the night game. I got my my body time. So wicketless six o'clock. It's still a grind. But it's a it's almost something dad. So I'm excited. How is how is your off season? Like, did you attack it any differently than previous ones? No, just making yourself better. Chain your swing up any like, I mean, I mean the only thing I really did differently. This year was just understanding how my body worked. And what worked for me? Swing wise. I feel like when I came out the second half out here. I really understand who I was hitter. And what I needed to do. So I kind of just wanted to pee more consistent this year. And I just find to find them things. And right now, I'm pretty good. How do you feel that spring training's going so far you like your chances making the team? Going out there playing hard every day and doing anything handheld team cliche answer. It's kinda how I holler. Go about things. I feel like things will happen after that people said like people in media. The pop off your bat is different this off this spring training. So far have you started courting your best maybe a little? I would have said this offseason. I I have a little bit more body awareness, and I'm able to use my body in different ways where I wasn't last year trying to muscle everything on trying to be more fluid now. And obviously if you're falling anything about hitting nowadays, it's all about food witty and being loose. And that's kind of understanding how my body works. And it's transitioning really. What we're trying to awkwardly make can motions to you. But I'll just say could you move the mic little close. I'm trying to watch the watch the levels here. No. It's all good. It's all good. I was waiting for the right time to ask just hop in and ask but you've had a ton of success in in spring training and AAA obviously the majors as different animal. What do you think? The toughest adjustment has been going from triple eight of the bigs. You know, triple a plan every day. And when I get to the big leagues, it's it's more sporadic. So that you don't even know what position you're going to play. Exactly. So I think it just kind of finding a routine gets me. Able to be. So what I'm looking for have the most success and limited playing time. So that's that's the big thing for me. That's kind of where I'm at right now. And I'm kind of tailored my game that way this past offseason. So. The season for sure when when people talk about your game then's over comes up almost every single time positions versatile Swiss army knife is that someone you like patent your game after or is that just like happened by chance or you see out there. I think that happened by chance man. I mean, I think growing up I watched Derek. And I think also I think with away games chaining now at being labelled as until it got back in the day almost like a knock on. I think being labeled as utility guy. Now on today's game is more of kind of a Pat on the back. You're able to do more things rath- let it and especially with all the different shifts now like you're not really playing straight up shortstop anymore. Playing second base. So being able to be familiar with both sides of the field even in the outfield. I think it's it brings a lot of help to different different teams and a lot of flexibility that can help guys out. What is it like being able to adjust to new positions? How hard is it to learn a new position or I mean? Having the coaches that we have it's been really easy for me. I've been blessed with that. But man, it's it's grind. It's a lot of hard work. A lot of a lot of sweat and tears relit spoken hard. I mean, I don't know. No, no. You can't. It's tough. But you know, it's it's grind. And I love ever been bit. Do you? You see yourself as like an analytics guy 'cause I think some game of baseball changing in that sense. Or you more of a field. A more of a field guy, man. I mean, I think. Just I I'm a big on using your is just being having body awareness. And how you're feeling today is monitoring things that way. So I mean, you can look in an Olympic sponsor things. But for me is just them is. So I saw you've been a lifelong Anki fancy or eleven years old getting a carry out your dream came to play Anke stadium. Right. What was that experience? Right. Yeah. So I did that we came to a Yankee game. I took a tour of the old stadium watched the game. And I kind of fell in love with the city and atmospheres everything man, and it was been a dream come true. Awesome. So cheaters you're for sure for sure you want to be the short of the Yankees, just what about him back about, you know, gravitate yourself towards. Every every place. He was making the clutch hits especially in the playoffs. Math. That's the that's the thing. People about their because I'll clutch wasn't over in November. I mean even in the regular season. But I think just the way he went about his business every single day. He was never to hide never too low. He was this guy, man. What do you think you're like number one? It's a is it impossible hitting me on the spot. For me to remember. That's a long time ago. Man. I'm just gonna go from the first thing I saw person I remember walking into the nosebleeds. I remember looking down the very first place do jump through. And so I think that's the first Essex out in mind for me. You know, then I go home playing ball with my boys. And that's what I'm trying to emulate, man. So I think that's that's one of the moments sit out. I remember trying that little leak and throw it so far it's hard. I still try to do it. I'm not that good at it. Oh, gee jeeter's over eight. If know there's no way you could say over it field when he's making plays like that. Let us I think he had six years for six. I think for the last three years, I don't know the numbers. But I think it was below. Stupid. So this is going to sound a hope this doesn't come off as stock rush. But we go through. I know you had a scary face. And we go to people's Twitter's before interview them for two reasons while we ought to find good content ask them about. And then we also want to make sure I mean, you see all these players getting exposed for pet tweets. They have in the past wanna make sure they got nothing. I saw this. This is a good one. This is a good one February twenty first twenty fifteen you tweeted that you were at dinner with Derek Jeter wanted to know what that experience was like. Before that dinner that was more like a captain's camping lost come up to the minor leagues. And he was able to kinda meant to us. I think judgy was there Greg bird. I don't know if you remember Matteo he was there ghost Gaito. Was there all the young guys coming up, and you're able to mentor us, and what to expect when we get to New York and Manny was spot on. It was crazy. But just a completely different guy than the media. Sees is because he's so close to the media. And like, you guys must be awesome from actually open up. Yeah. But at the same time, he's just he's trying to help us trying to warn us. What's now warrants? I think warrants kind of harsh, but just kind of prepare us for what's going to happen because you know, New York's a different animal when it comes to media different people, attacking you and pulling you in different directions. Whether it's needed to go interview here, it's just a lot of different distraction. So barbershop interviews they. Do you? Do you get nervous? Like, what was he just period of attack in the New York man, not attacking handling the New York media because it can be tough. I mean, really really tough. It's not like any place else pretty much, you know. You know? It's tough. I feel like. Jason Zillow our PR guy did a really good job of helping us when we first got there and not kind of. Saying the right things and make every make sure everything's not about you. Jeeter help cheer. Exactly. And so that would just kind of ingrained in us. It really hasn't been that bad. But I think it's different for all. I know for for guys coming from different teams. It might be a little bit shocking to them. But for me, it's it's normal for me. Like, I'm used to it. Like, I see forty guys gawk edgy normal day. But. Ago. It might be a little. Right right for sure. And like. You said you loved and all this another guy who loves eater guy. Yeah. Just Instagram than the o'day. You guys seem like you have some sort of relationship talk to me about him. And just what he's been like in the quickest. We saw him against the Blue Jays spring training game hits the home run stairs writings fucking out. He's screaming as ground. Second base. Awesome. He's a loser. Get out of here. That's bring that fire spring training. Let's go. I mean, you got to think about this, man. He he was aboard line hall of Famer at one point spirit. He was he was doing some pretty amazing things. And then for a guy that's pretty much in the premise career, then couldn't play anymore though. He's injured or happening. And then he comes out and he worked his butt off, man. He's one of the hardest working guys. I know. And then it's kind of ironic team that released them on me. It's a homework one of the races. It's just a competitive fire that he has and how much work a lot of people over how much work goes behind the scenes, and I'm with them every single day in this guy is one of the hardest working dudes I've ever met, man. Like, he's in the. Weight room. And I like to be in the way, we're before anyone else. As almost beat me in there to see a guy that's ten years older than me still love in the game. And he's still join him in its special think we're gonna get a different tool. Oh, like just everything the Blue Jays. It didn't work out that way. There's a lot of injuries. He has the dual he'll surgery and all that you think we're gonna get away different too. Oh, yeah. To those ready men. He's going to be big for us this year on the side. We got him. Awesome. Who who are you mentioned the weight room who are the earliest guys in the weight room mate, or they're just judge Carlo invoice, just like bench press and five hundred pounds. Now, they're always in their man. I I think everyone's got their own little routine. Basically everyone's in their man, I have is. Oh after like every time I look for my shoulder in their Guinness worked on seventies. Always in their CC. I think is that really one guy that's really slacking off. I think that's why we're so special. So a little siphon baseball. I've w on this podcast, multiple times, the most handsome man and major league baseball. What is it like just being hot? You go out with the guys and like Clinton Minna this like the girls was gravitate towards you. Like, what's that? What's that my mom and dad? In the barbershop real. So when we had Clinton he actually said that your game is better in the DMZ than in person. Do you want to refute that at all you agree? Goes down. I'm a little bit more of a subtle guy than he is. Man, you gotta put me on the spot right now. It's all good. But like what is it like going out in in New York City? I mean, you guys, you know, young guys Yankees. What's typical night outlook like for you, Erin and other guys? This may be hard to believe. But I don't really go out that much man. I'm more of a low key guy. Don't. Yeah. No. I don't know what you just from us talking. Get the hell out. Pick up line. If I do go nine out for me man is just like I'm gonna go out, and I'm gonna go get dinner, maybe like cash or something like trendy place and get some drinks. But nothing I don't go. I'm clubs aren't my thing. Man. I I like to I'm gonna go out maybe keeping low key have a bottle of wine come back to the cribs chill. I promise you. I'm not trying to fuck you here. But along with being handsome, your your. You're extremely fast. So what is it like being extremely handsome and extremely fence. Growing up the handsome fast kid, just dominates the world. And you have your always the fastest guy in every room you walk into. And these are complex. I'd love to go somewhere and just have become laments. Is not easy men. It's hard work, man. I got good genes from my parents. But I mean fast things cool, though, everyone. Yeah. Everyone wants to hit five hundred too. So hey, that's why I'm saying. Exactly, exactly. But I mean, it's just hard work. That's all that is. What was so we're talking a little bit about your opposite close with Aaron judge. What is he you know, the media is a very different portrayal of him. He seems reserved self behind closed door to see loosen up. And he's more of a character in the clubhouse. He's a very humble guy. He he loves to be around his family's friends, and he kept he keeps us circle type, but I've known him for manifield like twenty years now. But it's it's since two thousand thirteen he's he's like a big brother to me. I think I think he's I what you've seen the media's pretty much what you give you an close doors. He's very very humble on cares about others. He's always getting credit to others, and he just wants the best and looks out for other people went to like seeing his BP all those guys. I mean voi- Carlo. Gary's going Carl Giancarlo that home on the day, dick use. I don't even I don't even wanna hit behind them. Shit, man. It's crazy. It's crazy. We got some got some dumped in the lineup. That's how good the one hit fifty homers combined with. I mean, it's it's crazy. Actually, it's funny. We were talking to today was reminders remind where he's like management and ninth right now. I'm like micro look at our lineup all star and BP MVP MVP MVP all-star all star could be lever hit nine year. Unbelievable. It's unbelievable, man. So the talent we got. The silver slugger, man. Title. Yeah. It's crazy. So the depth and we got his at stupid. And obviously as we mentioned before ton of big guys on the team. I'm one are. You wrestling idle? Yeah, I'm not either. But I watched Royal rumble once like a month ago, if the clubhouse broke out into like a Royal rumble just one big fight who's the last man standing. I think that that answers pretty obvious, man. Actually, wait, hold up. There's a few can make the case for. Yeah. I think I think Tommy Canley is a psycho. Psycho and red bull L is real. It's a real thing. But I definitely think it might be between Tommy judgy and Giancarlo and I'm gonna throw boy in that mix too. But. Cici delon. Hey, I'm gonna throw myself in the mixon, I'm gonna I'm gonna lay in the back. I'm quick. But but a rope a dope with the moment. I got a face up against those guys. I'm out. That's the best. We're the best ball team. If anyone wants to fuck with us. You just look at judge. Stan. Oh, okay. Well, the stands right now. That's how you're not lying. I've been I've been in if you count if you come the Troy as three separate bras, I've been in four balls in two years, and they're those dudes are no joke, man. So. Back to judge lesson on him his photo shoot that he did Bloomingdale's couple days ago. You guys give way. What are you talking about came out a whole photo shoot where a pull it up? I've no idea about this. But I'm so glad you did. Yes. It was like a fashion photo shoot. He was modern with his classes on and. Well. This great. This is great radio right now where judge. I can't wait to see this shit. I call men rocket. He hubs just hits on all the Yankee players if that's not obvious by now. Come on. Okay. We'll get back. We'll get back to that. When spring. I'll I'll go something. So what is one thing? Something would be some people would be surprised to know about you. What's like a little hidden fact about yourself? I think the whole thing would be one. Yeah. But other than that. Man. That's a good one to a hidden fact about me, a love sneakers, I think. I think. I'm a I'm slowly starting again, a fashion. So I think that's one thing that I'm passionate about outside of the field. I would say that man. I I love I think that's the way to express yourself. This is a polled though. I like the colors on your shirt dot can't pull that. I don't have the confidence to do. I guess. Shoes. On your phone sprint. I'll try to look up. What about what are few of your pet peeves a few things that has really bothered late being late. You ask anybody? I guarantee you if you have to anybody never. Always fifteen minutes, or whatever it maybe we showed up run on right as you're walking into. And I don't think it was before. I think I told you fifteen I think here. Eight ten I'm always I'm always a little early your big Lakers fan. Oh, huge. Like how? How? Ruin the franchise. A he's easy easy. I don't think he ruined it. But I, you know, there's a lot of injuries this year, so bearing that I think, you know, next year the year Thomas the picture, I have if you want to scroll through. Glasses. You're looking girl. She's what the fuck with the fuck with the out. Killing it, man. He's killing it. You got it. Yeah. I'm gonna bring it up tomorrow. He says, I'm gonna pack them out this. I would too. He's on top of the. I would be whatever wanted I'm shocked. He he's very reserved and like, I get it. And he's trying to fall jeeter like path. And I mean, that's the way do. New York City, you get mob people who work like our company like not us. But like sub you're sure they go for lunch, and they get like, so you're Aaron judge it's like walking with the president. As we wrap up here. So last year ended on a pretty much a horrible. No, the Red Sox in the World Series is the worst thing in the world. But like how much more of a fire does that drive into everybody? No oppor-. Amen. There's there's a we're ready. We're some dog getting whip best way to put it where some dogs we're hungry ready to eat. We're ready to go out there and kick some asses your, man. I know it's cliche answer. That's we'll be one where we're ready row. I think we got I think the intensity and like the vibe we got spring training low bit different this year. And it's last I've been with organizations joke thirteen I can just feel it a bit of a some extra shit behind the way, we work. I feel like like you can tell like this. Yeah. I mean, take back east. I think is know that guy look around the room, and they're like, okay. There are some dogs. Like here, we go go. So no, I'm glad and it's an awesome way to wrap it up where I feel like you wanna get your haircut. I'm looking little. Appreciate it. Good luck the season. And yeah, hopefully talked against. Absolutely. All right. Good talking to Tyler obviously, we wish him on the luck in Scranton. Hopefully kills it out. There keeps killing it. You know, gives them some motivation along motivation. I mean that guys have played very angry, and you know, hopefully up soon just shitty ton with the initiatives time. I remember hearing the way news, I just text you like you up before kidding. Or maybe you text me that. But I think you. Yeah. Out of that, whatever we each other. We're just like shit. So the worst possible time because we knew tomorrow was the way way up to and. Yeah to it any other time. No. So skull abrasion tolerate makes the team we have a mon- awhile. So the good news is the season starts on Thursday. I'm actually going on Saturday now that I'm not in Vegas, that's kind of cool tickets lined up. So go to that Paxton is that's his starts. I because see in person. It probably Saturday with up, and we will have a full season preview on Thursday with we hope a special guest, you know, I never want a guarantee things because with my luck shitsus doesn't have him. But we're looking pretty good guests help us previous season on Thursday send in questions on the short porch Instagram at the underscore short underscore porch. Just anything you're looking forward to the season. We'll do predictions. I'm sure they'll be old takes exposed. But whatever we all die the day. Everyone dies. So it's whatever predictions dirtier. That's just the way I'm living. Some other good news. My headache. It's clearing up. So looks like three adult into the trick will probably take two more Adrain for headaches. My my mom does that she's migrants, but they're they're they are very effective. They like extra shrank like at. I mean, they're not like, they're they're strong. They're not, you know, hard core.

"The. Say. Todd five as go the Bosnian love these Aaron Boone the leader his first of the. Piggies? Just to the first. The porch. It roy. What's up? What's happening? Welcome to another dish of the short porch. Presented by barstool sports. I'm your host hubs along sat me on the other side of the laptop the vacant and stuff the club sa- cloud. Tommy, smokes Thomas Kelly. What's going on? What's up? I'm pretty hyped up right now. Just absolutely electric episode of survivor. Unreal tribal council. Don't want to spoil anything in case we need to be caught up, but best show on TV just keeps giving I mean, how electric could a tribal council. Smoking spoken like a true true small-minded before. But I've watched survivor like I've seen cool network canyon. Again. I don't want to spoil. It was electric some great theater as in someone pull out a gun and shoot Jeff props like that would be pulled something out, and it was incredible. Like a deck. I know how that made. It seem not why this is thirty eight right now. And you're still shocked by things I mean, what is great television permit. What could possibly have happened in season thirty eight of survivor that drops your jaw like show. Many do not think the game can evolve can happen in the year twenty nineteen ninety or they've been around forever. That is so different. There's new players every year. Thanks. Okay. Great. So okay. That don't change a little a little it's the same shit. I bet you turn on a random up. I don't want to trash belts. I used. So to your three arguments are that different players different results. You basically the new Madden game every year. Oh, it's different as promise. It's real exports every year. It's unpredictable. You actually did exactly disrupt. The new Madden like me. Like if my dad were to ask me like. Oh, what's different from? This year's always asked me. Why are you by the new man? Can you just play the old one? And just as the new players is changed. The change the rules were they do hit stick does this that now, that's it. Like, that's what survivors I feel like now very different because you're on an emotional roller coaster for forget it. I can't even bother with an I can't argue with a brain peasant with a mind peasant. Go watch the change of again, great movie. It's lean to. It's the survivor of movies. I like the change of some enough that the two favorite actors. Jersey. Achey news, very bluff forgettable, two losses in Arizona. We're pretty much very acceptable with the six and three obviously could have been better we come into this. This two-game set six in one on the west coast trip finished six three two losses. Could have won didn't win offenses pretty sleepy. That's going to happen when you have replacement players out there. You know, the Mike talk wins of the world are coming back down to earth a little bit LeMay Hugh being out or shallow being out in game. One will make you apple days. Hopefully, getting him back on Friday. Lisa expected thing very expected. The see this kind of result. I'm not mad about the losses at all. In the National League is weird and all that shit with the double switches, whatever find no more west coast baseball for a little bit. You know, I got to go back to normal sleeping schedule. And you know, hopefully, we get a few guys back on Friday, which me nice, and then we can get rolling. I mean, this is kind of what we expected from the replacement Yankees. And there was a nice magical little run last week with the angels, San Francisco and royals for a few games to fundament- the end of the day. These guys are, you know, they're replacement level players for a reason they overmatched by means at cranky just pitched great on Tuesday night and dieback good team. Now, it is people start saying key seven beat a team all year with a winning record, blah, blah, blah, blah in our five. Yeah. Whatever I, you know, don't five isn't the biggest apple size and banged up or whatever I'm not concerned like six if you told us last Sunday night, we're gonna go six and three in the road trip was a heartbeat. We probably set it on the podcast that we signed up. That was like are are we reaching for six three and we'd be like? Okay. Five and four five and four. Yeah. I think we've probably had four and five when pe- the absolute end of the world, given all the injuries. So six three you'll take it. Get home got a couple tough tasked with twins. And mariners. The teams that are performing so far this year. But we do seem to always beat up on the twins. But we'll see I mean six three overall in better spot the star of the road trip better record and more guys coming back to be healthy. And like it does sound a little bit like oh, thanks for replacement players. But like SIA like we're moving on not the case at all at all. I was listening to Evan. Robert Evan Roberts in beningo earlier this week avenue since to the show so with Evan. But I had a caller forgot might be like a Wednesday and the guy with weren't on Oktay's Wednesday. Isn't it today? One. Yeah. So it wasn't. So it was like Monday Tuesday. And the caller was saying how we can't get rid of these guys. These are these replacement players like a half the start like they were like we have to move off on the starters. And it was like all right. We'll give me some examples and the guy just kept repeating himself and just would not give an answer and Evan was about to strangle the guy on the phone. He was so this went on for like four minutes. He just kept ranting and stuttering anyone out names, eventually give or shallow and Evan already said. Like, I get it. I want or shell it deserves to have a role on the steam we've already stated that he deserves to be on the twenty five in roster for the foreseeable future. And then he was like who else, and he just couldn't really name anybody else. He said he might have said. Doc men like I love Mike talk on the sock, ma'am when everybody's health. Like, you're not playing Mike talk over Aaron Hicks play. Mike talk with Clint Frazier. You know, it's that's not happening. And just and after that, it's like you don't have an answer. I think there might be a case for camera. Maybe I don't really consider him a replacement player. Like he's been in the league for so long still speak compla- all out three alpha positions until Foley healthy in the outfield. He can find a role on the team. But guys like Tyler wait when we get an fully fill back. We love Tyler Wade. But when we get a fulling full, you know, he's not going to have much playing time. Talknet. Same thing. Strada? I think is just not the caller dimension. Astrada don't think in the future for sure right now. He's just a good guy to have on the bench. If you have room on the bench, if not then you know, you move on. I think there could be a case for Mike Ford because the backup first baseman thing, you know, he might be a little bit better defensively at for it depends what the whole situation like, but he's not a bad bath have of the bench came up today. He had a weird west coast trip because with the whole no D H. He's really obsolete because you know, voice not going to be sad, especially during the streak. So he's really reserved to a pitch hitting role. Did get up today which men on and worked nut. Heaves felt out to meet Lii. And then worked good walk every about he has very solid. So I could see a role from Mike Ford for sure for a little bit. But everyone else like come on. Let's not kid ourselves. Here. We want the guys back. Hey, Mike Ford's a guy that we can see have a role longer because the injured guy. He replaced Greg bird and of all the injured guys. Greg bird is probably the least likely to come back at anytime soon. No one could see right. I don't even count him person. So yeah, I mean, I think Estrada we talk men those will be sort of the first victims as these guys start to get healthy that will see get either setback down play or just have less playing time. They it's kind of a case look like I said last week. We had a nice little fling with these guys. Nice little fling. It was fun one nine and a ten games but to degree distance does make the heart grow fonder. And you know, as we get used to play more and more sorta get exposed by big league pitching were now ready to get back. You know, the guys we expect to tab at the start of the season shell is legitimate. I mean, he I'm not even counting him. Yeah. He is. He's like a regular plan point. He came in today. I start heating play on Monday. And he comes back. Today. Just rips doubled online gets the third on on on narrow on the throw or bobble. He he's legit. I I mean, it's crazy that we just found lightning in a ball of him. But he's gonna stay for no one when ender har- looks like and horseback Friday, they haven't announced anything yet. But everything's gone. Well. I would think he's going to be. And that would mean or Shelby or third baseman. I think that's the plan moving forward. I hope that's the plank is both guys should play too low had a setback with calf thing he had hit their hit in the leg. And not not great. Not good news too low. Great. And we don't need him the second like that's not. Yeah. I think we could live without him for a little bit. Other injuries think Stanton's progressing little bit hick. Sounds like it's progressing more everything else pretty pretty much status quo. Judge though, I said very interesting role near times say really, I don't know anything. Yeah. I don't think we're gonna know any any real news for about few weeks, whatever until he like, he's not doing quiche completely shut down for a couple more weeks. Maybe even more which not great. But hopefully, they can get stand back. And Clint Clint sounds like he's close to it. Appears he's been running in the outfield on flat ground Ellsberg couldn't do that ever. So maybe we get Clint back in a week is ten days from the counter. My head seemed to be coming up close to be done, but we will be out there. Yeah. So but judge has had this. So basically when you get hurt like the way judges, and it's gonna be long term. You have the option of going down the Tampa and rehabbing down there or you can stay with the team. It's really left up to you case by case basis. Apparently when George was the owner and the live he didn't want he felt gives the distraction to both the players who were hurt and and the players who were healthy. And he wanted you to just go right on the Tampa just handle your business down there. Now, it's more lenient says this article and judges opted to stay travel with the team, and he's basically become the hitting coach, which is good news. Our normal hitting coach Mark stems is completely incompetent. I definitely like Aaron judge teaching these guys that hit the market stems. You have to wonder what Marcus SIMS has been doing this. I mean, how badly did he get shown up one like our judges showed up and showed everyone had hit. I mean these bats were during. Well, I all these guys who were, you know, really lifelong minor leaguers or journeymen are the hitting solo. So they just they just got hitting coach Aaron judge. I mean, how a masculine is markets tenants where he just doesn't do anything general shows up. And it's like, hey, like, you're gonna teach them anything. And then he just now the hitting coach. Yeah. Voight said it's kind of nice to have that guy you can kind of lean on task those questions about because video can only do so much pretty much exactly hitting coach should be. They just have a real that hidden coach it's nice to have a real hitting coach. Marcus. Tim's a judge. Yeah. It really I mean, he's going to be the captain at some point just a matter. When maybe it's like he is someone or World Series. I or whatever. But I mean, he does all the things that a captain should do. He just needs. You know, he has like the unofficial St. basically honors as your as nice nice update from him in that. He's contributing that way, you know, I feel like I would wanna do the same thing. I I would hate to be separated from the team I would wanna travel and be with these guys and try to especially if you have the status of Aaron judge, and you know, you can impact young guys like this like a Mike Ford and stuff like well Ford is actually probably either older or just. Yeah, he's probably will. But like, experience wise judge has it on them. So, you know, guys like your shelhah thyroid Strada, client, whatever so nice to see that from judge good. Good stuff with that. Everything else. Eject Nelson called his first game. I noticed pretty good to be honest. I enjoy the little breath of fresh air from him. He's kind of funny. He he's pretty smooth that he called the game in spring. I guess I did not hear that game. I didn't listen every game. I would watch my phone on mute sometimes. But I thought Nelson was pretty solid. What time do I did like have he immediately yesterday Tuesday night in the first inning trash, the I'll Germany we got a call it the injured list now used to be the disabled list. So that I automatically. I was like all right. I like this guy. Yeah. He's fun. Fact, I met jail. Well, I don't know if I know I just saw him on an airplane. Once see didn't meet him. That's really there's really nothing fun about that. I just saw Jeff Nelson. He was getting his bag from the overhead. Okay. Now, the big news. Basically is that she's Matthew history thousand strikeout I mean that was the biggest news of the week for this team. Obviously like in terms of the actual games. Pretty slow CC becomes the third left evil time in history baseball hit three hundred strikeouts. And then he is the seventeenth ever to do it. Which may be realized this milestone is pretty much the most allusive out there, you know, less people have this than three thousand hits less people. Have this them five hundred home runs, obviously less people had this in three hundred wins. It's pretty much the most elusive one out there. I'm concerned. It's the most allusive one that people still get that. That makes any sense, right? Like seven hundred home runs is more lucid. But it's obviously smaller club. Yeah. I mean, I I don't know pitching milestones to me. Aren't as excited? I think to most fans ish aren't as exciting or sexy maybe as hitting milestones. But it's equally impressive or more. Impressive in a lot of cases. Remember Roger Clements hitting his three thousand four thousand. I remember that was thing. It was like a Sunday night game against the cardinals Ave was school. I mean, it is weird to think that not that many people. I mean to be only the third lefty to do it is crazy. But I think if there are any doubts about CC being a hall of Famer, which I don't think there should be. I mean, it's not like this really puts in perspective that he is in get two hundred fifty wins, which is basically the new three hundred gala World Series. Gotta Cy Young been a workhorses entire career. He is I think a hall of Famer in every aspect of what it means to be hall of Famer. Yeah, he's gonna hit thirty five hundred innings. Two hundred wins said six time all star. He won the Cy Young. He's one of AOL CS VP and a World Series ring. I think he's a shoe into Bohol famous. Only question he gets in his first ballot. First time. I don't know that might happen depends. If like just the floodgates opened with that after Maryono, I don't really know. But I think he's a hall of Famer my mind without a doubt. He's only the second Yang. I mean, there's only seventeen players ever. He's the second Yankee to hit three thousand as a Anki Phil Niekro did it like in his two years with Yankees. They could just so happen to be then you wouldn't think Phil Niekro Yankee. But. Yeah. I mean, pretty fun. Crazy these hell career we figure we'll use this podcast is kind of not. It's basically like a tribute. Thank you to see just like what he's done pretty much been one of the better Yankees of all time like in terms of his tenure with you know, like if you think like who's been with the team for bitching, pitching wise. I mean, we weren't hand up to us. We weren't alive for Whitey Ford. Like didn't seem like in terms of our lifetime. He's number one. I think is a start shirt. Yeah. I I mean, you put I fact checked myself there with Roger Clemens I knew it was something with the cardinals. How about this night for Audrey Clemens? I now remember this so June thirteenth two thousand three against the cardinals. As Yankee Roger Clements on the same night. One is three hundred game. I got his four thousand strikeout. Jesus. What remember that? Now. That is quite that is insane. Yeah. Nolan. Ryan having five thousand strikeouts is preposterous. It's crazy that three thousand is such an elusive and important number that only seventeen people have done, and the guy was the most of all time has double that base. Gretzky ship insane. It's yeah. It's like you take away. Oh, by the way, we were talking crazy stats Barry Bonds. I mean, there's a million Barry Bonds stats out there. That are weird. Did you see this one? I tweet about yesterday. Barry Bonds has more intentional walks in his career in the entire Tampa Bay rays have as a franchise in their history. It's seed. The other one someone like replied to that tweet and said if if somebody are so from two thousand one until his retirement bonds walked one thousand sixty eight times in that same period. He swung and missed six hundred eighty six times at in. This one was really crazy. If someone for a full baseball season went two for five with a home run every night the end of the air that have four hundred average a hundred sixty two home runs and their PS would still not be as good as bonds as wasn't for what was zone arrest. I know this the CC podcast. But if we're talking crazy stats I had to give those to shout out because those draw dropping what was his opiates that you're fourteen twenty two. Oh my God. Obviously steroids got to Barry in that. That's the whole blemish. But what if Barry's using a different product, Tommy? Well, he was using CBD. He wouldn't be suspended. I I don't think you know, you wanna be vilified CBD is something that you know, we should all be looking at. You're not gonna get vilified for using CBD just gonna help you. It's gonna make you feel better. It's the new hot thing everyone's doing it. And where do you wanna get your CBD from extract laps?

One more Barry thing, it's wild that the year he broke the home run record. He was walked two hundred times. So like in actuality if he people actually through to him he might have had one hundred home runs. Yeah. Cr- his if you ever get door just go look at Barry bounces baseball reference page from two thousand one through two decades legitimate last favorite things to do or just a YouTube compilation video of him hitting home runs. The one. He hit old Yankee Stadium is preposterous makes her remember, no sense. Assisi's career. I mean, I think it's one of the more. It's probably the biggest reclamation products project like in recent memory, at least in as far as as long as I'm watching baseball. I mean, the guy goes from power pitcher to just completely losing it. And for those few years from twenty thirteen twenty fifteen. Bet. He wasn't good four eight one era, and this is after finishing in the top five in the Cy Young five out of six years. And and then he and he wanted one of those years, and then he obviously has he'll alcohol problem. He goes through his way to shoes and he has to reinvent himself. And he develops this cut fastball. He starts pitching backwards. You know, these, you know, starting the first pitch at bats backdoor slider and just like he had the reinvent himself and be just a crafty left instead of this power guy, you know, who had foreseen fast foods blow it by you and it worked. I mean is the IRA the last four years has been below four, and he's become this, reliable stopper. And it's honestly just so fucking impressive like a work ethic that he had to just you know, he could easily just hung up a couple years ago. I honestly don't 2016 he'd be done. And it was. Yeah. These knee injuries year after year. And the do just kept on fucking truck and around and he's still here pitching in twenty nineteen and woodsy area blow three to start the year. So impressive. Yeah. We see. I mean, I remember in nine, you know, before then we really hadn't seen in a while eastern. Our lifetimes, true Yankees ace. I mean Clemens little bit. You know, earlier Messina would have the year. He won twenty games. But news consistent more like a two or three really pet. It was always kinda more to never that dominant ace and CC came along. And you know, we knew we needed someone and he wants for those four years own I through twenty twelve especially the first three, but really all four years. He was as good as anyone in baseball. You could set your clock to it. He'd start off the season a little bit slow. And then I just remember summer days summer day games on the weekend sees pump in ninety eight ninety nine you knew you were getting seven eight innings of shutout baseball one run. Maybe two runs. It was just dominant. He was. As reliable and dependable as they come true workhorse. You could pencil meant for two hundred innings every single year. Big game pitcher guy on the mount had agree postseason nine big moments. After that to like, I said he took a downturn. But to see the way he's reinvented himself. Now, we've seen always seen him as the dominant flame throwing lefty who just relies on stuff. We saw him be bad always seem to be the crafty veteran lefty that we always hear about it's been fun to watch eleven years. He's the greatest Yankee starting pitcher in of our lifetimes. Yeah. For those times as you said you could win for two hundred thirty innings, and he was in the area blow three five and that just doesn't happen anymore. Not gonna see that. No one will ever. I mean, not many, you know, maybe max sure something, but people who even clips two hundred anymore, and I even go back to pre Yankees with him. Which is what was what was your? Oh, eight. Eight. Yeah. I wanna look at this game. Log his oh eight with the brewers. I mean. About it. He would pitch every day. I'm he pitched every single day. He pitched from from July eighth to September twenty eighth clicked on the wrong. Fucking thing. He made seventeen starts and then the team went fourteen and three and those starts with an he had a one six five year reign, though, seventeen starts any literally will that into the plus eight impeach well fairly well in the playoffs. But I mean, he was fucking good. And he great to get in that point. And that's where we signed. We saw that we want that guy where he gave him a lot of fucking money. I will never forget Sunday September twenty eighth two thousand eight the Mets the year before had had that epic collapse. Seven and a half games or seven and a half game lead in seventeen games against the Phillies the collapsed, they had a minor claps away too. I mean, they were up a few games in the wildcard I may three and a half or something lost that to the brewers. I remember that Sunday sees at the on the mound watching the game in my me. And my dad watching the game in my basement watching C C, they're playing the cubs throw a complete. Game knowing how to win that Sunday. Knock the Mets out of the playoffs. My mom who's a methane upstairs. Just hearing her like cry, and we're rubbing it in cheering down after every strikeout. CC were get that game. I wrote my bike over to my met fans friend's house and just yelled his window been leg Mets up. Go CC cici's about the even before he was providing us with great Yankee moments. He provided me in awesome moment when he was a route brewer are knocking the Mets up Lyles. Yeah. And I'm looking back in the game. Log starting September sixteenth. He went four straight starts three days. Rest. Jeff out was crane net. Think about that happening today. Never you go once three days rest, it's like all right buddy chill out. You're gonna get Tommy John. He's fucked. Now. I mean, yeah. Did he tire on the playoffs? And that you're fine, whatever. But I mean, you know, delicate ruined his career in fried. We started and you know, less to World Series does nine one forests. I mean, he was I mean, we're talking like he's dead. He's still got a whole year to go. And I think it would be fitting for him to get one more playoff chance because you know, the one against the Red Sox last year didn't go his way. And you know, that's for number reasons whatever, but I think the guys more than capable of maybe starting one more playoff game. I don't know, you know, maybe we don't want that. Because with our starting rotation ideal. You have would have Severino, but he could be a four. Maybe we're not confident what hap- at the mo- to going in. And we're more comfortable Cici could be the four, but obviously would want Severino. Paxton and Tanaka now does that mean are is getting about side to Mingo fuck forget forget about sometimes. But I mean, there could very well be several not coming back this year which could put him right next. Did you see? See what happens after three thousand strikeout with the whole the sheriff droplets. Yeah. Isn't sate. So this is the treat odd sight this morning when two in uniform officers from the Maricopa County sheriff's office strolled into the Yankees clubhouse canine dog in tow to get autographs from Sobat and attempted to get signature from judge before set officers were runoff by club security. This is a strange seat site. See until this week don't think he'd have anyone's ever seen uniform officers with a canine Andrew clubhouse locker to get a fucking autograph. I mean, he was just that's how good CC is though. And judge. Yeah. I mean, a little unprofessional there as a journalists that I hate to see that to taken advantage of of passes locker room access past never saw me walking around with the ball asking for an autograph. So it show a little bit respect there about the whole John. Ryan Murphy thing, I mean, it's everywhere. So he called of everything do you? Call twenty fit he caught strike on twenty five hundred he was strike three thousand and he was whole Rivera thing. He caught Rivera's pot Rivera's last pitch or whatever last appearance, and there's that famous seen him on the mound when jeeter up to take him out and Rivera's crying his eyes out into pet. It's arms, Jerry Murphy. Just standing off to the side, you know, baby face looking like a twelve year old just in all with his mouth open of what was happening around him. What a bizarre, and he's the guy we got. He we traded for Aaron Hicks. Yeah. I mean, this guy's charmer. Murphy. He's like etched in stone with Yankee history. He just can't escape it. It's fucking guy. Weird for a guy who's a relative backup in this league. So we figured we would give you top five moments that we had I figured we're gonna have a few that are similar maybe different spots. But this will be the first ever short porch top five and for that. It is brought to you by quip. It's time for spring cleaning and quips got an easy way to start with. You're brushing habits. Just two minutes. Twice a day can help pave the way to a healthier mouth in mind. And now, the whole family can get refreshed with quip, the new kids quip as the same two minute timer, which is awesome. And it keeps you right on track with all the regions you need to go. And how long you need to do it which I was lost for the first twenty four twenty five. Yeah. Forget how old I am twenty five years of my life. Now, I'm now I'm getting guided by quip, it's guiding pulses and the whole thing is now the kids are involved. So the new brushes the same as the original version just tweaked for size down mouths kids are inspired to brush better and more often oral care that looks and feels like a proxy adults. Lou us in real life. All you wanna do as a kid is sit at the adult table and feel like an adult and quip now gives the kids that opportunity with brushing your teeth, which I would love that Rickett. So that's got the built in timer. Too many time every thirty seconds to remind you switch sides and help you clean your whole mouth. And it helps you cover more of your mouth and instead of just leaning on the one side from ninety percent of the time. And and ten percent. You know, you're not doing the job. So it helps you do that. So he's going to quit starts at just twenty five dollars. If you go to get quip dot com slash ports. G E T Q U, I dot COM such P O P O R C H right now. Get your first refill pack four free. So just twenty five dollars. Get quip dot. Dot com slash porch, and your your I refill pack four. All right. Let's get into tough. I've see moments. You will I'll go five. I'll go one you go on. And we'll we'll go off. So what we start thought? I'm starting at the bottom animal. So number five for me is. This is last year CC versus angel Hernandez. He hated he hated angel Hernandez more than anyone on this planet. I mean fucking despise the sky, and he gets he gets out of he didn't get a strike call. Let's try strike out. Looking call eventually gets the guy out in the next pitch. This is in Anaheim. And as he's walking to the dugout Asia. Nestle isn't the Tories Astle as Muslims are. And as he he's basically staring down CeCe. And he's talking shit, Tennessee. She's talking shit shit back to him after they've given each other stairs during the inning and Hernandez like tries to him on which is not what an empire should be doing. You're just out of your life. This not when your job is don't fucking to stare. Do your job. Go get exchange balls. Whatever you gotta do in between ings don't stare my pitcher and just stares back image screams. Don't fuck and talk to me. It's very obvious. What he says? And then goon comes out. I believe gets checked. It might have been. I don't know if this Boone's first ojection, but he screamed right back out of them. And it's just so perfect and boon boon starts getting into it too. But I just love CC. He had no problem showing up and yelling and this. Just awesome. You're so clearly caught on camera. I love it. Yeah. I have another classic see attitude. My five moment is similar to yours where it's more CC being than is actual formats. But that's for you bitch. We all remember that from last September when he store at the raise sticking up for Austin remind gets thrown out cost himself. The bonus looked into the dugout and says that's for you betcha. Tampa Bay two shows what TC as leader guy's gonna stick up for his teammates cares. More about winning and protecting his teammates than a bonus. Yeah. And he ended up getting a bonus. They give it to him. Which I didn't think they were going to 'cause they're relatively cheap these days. But yeah, it was great moment. You know, fuck the raise, and I love I mean, just showing you how good that feels teammate for somebody's stand up for you. Like that especially veteran. Awesome. Forget who the hitter was do, you know, he was standing up for was it gosh, yoga Austin, Roma role mind. Okay. It was a catcher. Yeah. Okay. Number four this is random, but it was just going to the YouTube archives and shit. August six twenty fifteen. He struck out big potty with the basis loaded, and it was just like a big battle back and forth, and he gets them. And he just he looks into the Red Sox dugout is he's walking off the fuck outta here. And she's so like New York ish. So CeCe isn't great. Like, I Don, I if you go back and look at it on YouTube Yankee Stadium is fucking rocking. There's an August game against the Yankees and socks. See those are big. And I just love the emotion Hebron that if you bring a motion I'm going to be a fan of you know, every time. They're also wasn't that similar that was a different time. When remember the Red Sox kept wanting on him? He's just getting so pissed off. Jackie bradley. Yeah. That's different. You hated. Jackie bradley. Yeah. I don't I don't have that on there. But that's also I we saw Tuesday night him just refusing to cover first base could be annoying sometimes. But I respect the hell out of it. He just won't he did in the playoffs to last year. And it's like you can't get AMIS fucked. I'm not witness. I'm too old for this shit like that. All right. My four I have ale DS game five inning. Gene. That's my numbers. We're gonna have repeats. Oh, wait twenty seventeen. Yeah. Okay. Okay. You're not sure. Against the Cleveland, Indians wasn't the greatest start in the world. I mean, only went four and a third innings gave up two runs. No walks nine strikeouts. Though. It was when you know the ankles were coming back in that series from down to oh. And we just needed him to have you know, a solid star. I dunno. I just love that that postseason. Just so many good memories. Even though they ended up get- getting eliminated. Yummy LCS. I wanted to include that somehow because I had a good post-season six innings against the Astros is next coming up big in that game five just keeping the keys in the game until the fifth inning. And be able to set up, you know, them taking the lead a tip tip my calcium. They're a gamer. I really didn't think we're gonna have a chance in you know, you just go to Cleveland where they beat us twice and glue Bor kluber where you figure you have one run the play with maybe two, and then you know, Egypt CCC also playoffs. I didn't have this on. Do. You have any piles twenty seventeen. Yeah. Now. Okay. Honorable mention his start in game three against the the Astros down to baller. Like that was. I mean, you lose that series is completely granted they did lose the series in seven games. That's the six innings on right? Okay. Yeah. Or he might giving up one run. But it was just that I'm looking at. Okay. But that was the start he needed the team needed to even have a chance on series, and you know, one game from the World Series of ice still think about this day. Number three for me is twenty twelve this worth thought we had the same thing. LDS game five against the Orioles. She goes nine innings one run nine ks one hundred twenty one pitches. First complete game by yanking apply off since Clements in two thousand gets the Yankees to the AL CS just a fucking vintage CeCe. You're not hitting me not coming out of this game. I don't care if my arm falls off my arm isn't gonna fall because I'm strongman and he just bitched the Orioles. I think they won three to one in that game. Yeah. I so that wasn't my. So I'll just get my next to now because that's actually my number two. Okay. And I gave heavy consideration to making that number one that game five against the Orioles. I mean, I know it's not your they won the World Series. But I mean that game that was the Anki is needed an ace and OMON was he in as I remember that game five urban at my aunt's house for it. I mean like set complete game. Nine innings just came up big. I mean, not in not just the most vivid memory. I have of an ace is being a when he needs to be. And you know, going the distance is always awesome. I have that as my number two, my number three moment. So this is kind of a top. So I'll put it as this one. But I have two thousand nine actually the regular season. It wasn't me. Get the exact date may eighth at Baltimore. It was a Friday night nine inning complete game shutout eight strikeouts. One walk. It was the night that a-rod made his return and hit a home run in his first at bat. It was it was just, you know, a first complete game first shutout as Hanky, and for some reason, maybe it's just more of a personal memory. 'cause I know it was my I had my birthday party that day with all my friends. I remember watching the game for that day. We saw wolverine that night that just always sticks out to me as just an awesome performance. It was like all right. We got in a suite. Ace we've been looking for an AC, you know, struggle bit April CC and since that will may them through the rest of the season. He was an absolute dominant baller. And then as I'm Francisco survey catching that game. It was his first really dominant dominant start as Anki if I to go like a subset of that would be his second ever start in online with the Anki was against the Royal seven to third shutout innings on a Saturday night. I was bowling with my friends that night. So just those early great stars of him and own. I was like oh my God. We have an awesome ace on our team. Just really stick out to me. And I was talking bar radio today about it his first ever star. Also remember vividly against the Orioles on opening day in Camden, Yards six runs and four and a third innings. He was just awful that day. He walked five people. And I remember I think game I start at four o'clock. I remember calling my dad's. He was on his way home from work. And I was like dad we all problem like CC Sobat. Theo stinks. I ever start. Listen, I've been watching the game today. And every time he throws a slider. They just don't swing at it all the time. So it's was like the next seven years. He just gonna be throwing walls all the time because he can't throw a strike if they just don't swing it as pitches, you're gonna walk everyone. We're screwed is the worst contract ever really freaking out about that. And then that next start against Kansas City sort of calming me. And then the Baltimore start, especially sticks out. So that's number three's early. Great starts no nine but to make it one. Make it easy say that child against the Orioles with number two being ale- DS. You talked about good. Then you weren't like blogging back then game one game on completely write him off. Like, this is awful the wars contract ever. You would have been the quickest old takes expose the all time. My number two is that that's for you bitch. Maybe just recently by just always such a fucking awesome moment. And I remember blogging in. And it was just great and stick if your team a love that. So I'll jump to number one, and I couldn't really pick one out here. But this the whole twenty two thousand nine playoff run. I mean, he was just unbelievable. He was he piggyback off of you. You know, where we have our as well, this was the cement of that. It's like we have our he just want us a fucking World Series. So he goes five starts in the in the World Series and you'll nine playoffs. One nine eight era thirty six innings. I mean, he was just on absolute warrior thirty six comes out to just suggest over seven innings per start. He's just he's so good. He was unbelievably they all see us. And they believe he was the MVP. He made to stock people. Hank should've want it though. But baseball didn't wanna give it to. Yeah. I mean wouldn't have batter knife wrong. Either way. Yeah. I mean, but two of CCC starts the to start. He made the eight innings one run in both starts. I mean, he was just great World Series. You know, he was they did lose game one. He does come back and pitch game for and and gets the win while he can get the win. But the team wants him for. So he finishes that with a what would I say it was a one nine eight year? I I mean, just so so so good. And after that, and I see in my mind didn't matter what we paid him. Like, it's kind of like similar with the Red Sox and price even the contract William. Yeah. Similar price like up until this past playoffs. Like that concert was terrible. Now that he won your World Series. Like who gives a fuck what we paid him? He got us our World Series. That was see to me, obviously. A Yankee fan you want more than one World Series. But for me the fact that he did that in five starts he's in his first year, New York, just embrace the entire environment of the Bronx. And yeah, I mean, he was just unbelievable. Yeah. So my number one sort of similar I had own on AOL CS dependent down a little bit more the two eight inning. One run starts against the angels about how to really pin down. I tell you the game one. I think Saturday night, I'm pretty sure and he was just dominant. We had a couple of classic see fist pumps. I believe in that game. But yeah, I mean just incredible run for him up into that point. He hadn't been the the most reliable postseason performer with the brewers Indians right to see him put it all behind him and just really become dominate during that run as I fail. C S win the MVP. I have you know, I don't wanna repeat too much. What you just said. But I had. Yeah. If I had it make it a specific game. I say game one of the two thousand miles, but over autograph just say, you know, the nine playoff run. Yeah. Evie? We talk about for hours this shit him. He's he's the best starting pitcher that Cashman's ever signed. In Kashmir has a history of not doing well in that department trading and signing pitchers not his forte as the great track record that C C's been been incredible. In fact, he's still doing it. This stays insane. So now, hopefully, he gets another place star. You know, he stays healthy. Just crazy. How the dude I mean, I it was very dramatic in my tweet from death's doorstep to immortality. But honestly, like do the guy on we've talked about this podcast if the guy gets on the plane with Jackie Bradley to go to London during the off season to promote the London series. The doctor said he would not have come back. He would have died. So that's just insane. And the fact that he's pitching he's pitching. Well, he's happy. He's doing his little ESPN gigs. And you know, he wants that his podcast is great RTC to it. Ryan ruko. Shoutout a short porch Allom, and I mean, yeah. Can't be nothing. But happiness for the guy he deserves everything and more and hopefully. His knee holds up the rest of the year. And he's able to finish out his career the Aki it going to Cooperstown. As the Yankee, do you believe will retire fifty two? I think we will. I don't know. You don't think I think we're a plaque in for sure in monument park out of retired. I think I don't know. I would lean no on a really not that. I don't think it should. But. I don't know the number. I've always thought the number tyrant should really be reserved for lifelong Anki. And I mean, they haven't done that. Because Reggie Jackson had it. He was Yankee for what five years. I think given how many numbers they do retire. He deserves it. But I wanna be surprised if I want peace prize, not retired. If they win this year. It's a look like if they win the World Series this year, and he's a two-time chantey crimes walk. I still give it to him. But I unlike lenient with that shit. I like that shit. I like, you know, deserves in my opinion. He's been a Yankee way long. He's next to Gardner, the longest tenure guy, right? He's a second. Tenure guy garner is up for leave like a Cup of coffee L eight. I think yeah. You had it. He hasn't by few games. Yeah. Shadowed see? So thank you. Thank you for giving us up to talk about on this podcast because it was pretty light without boring. The two games we're in Arizona. Things are going to heat up now. Hopefully, get back on Friday don't know deals there. Too low. Obviously setback not great. They're Clint sounds like he's not too far away. Hopefully, Giancarlo thing. Hopefully LeMay, Hugh is okay. Little school weird. He wasn't. He didn't pinch it in the Wednesday game. Sterling was very irked by it. He thought for sure like LeMay Hewitt's a massive setback, basically because he wasn't pitching. But yeah. Hopefully, we get healthy. We've got the twins twins this weekend. They're legit. I said it I don't know if this podcast, but I wanted to bet on the twins to win the central because they just thought they had approved. So well, so so nicely all season and the centrally hadn't I just got an update Corey kluber, broken only bone. I don't know what that means. I don't where he got hit today. You got hit comebacker and lead the game broke something. So that doesn't sound good. The Indians are gonna have some trouble there. I we were talking today on radio about some bet since two I haven't met in a while. At least since March man is probably before that. But I was looking at the lines in the Indian say were minus one thirty five against the Marlins with kluber on the mound to I know hasn't been as good this season. But I still would just like how do you have clue? My only minus one thirty five minutes. The Marlins took that looks like they are yet. They long lost. I also took Shaer's minus one fifty they're about to lose to the cardinals. And I cook the Padres against the Braves and they lost to. So just went quick Owen three in my return. And this is why I'm just gonna again knock Campbell for a while. I got Baid into the Frankie Borelli sickness, and I took the Allender. I almost bet the hurricane just to be dick. I wish I did. I don't know why the moment put an in. I was like the hurricanes. Don't lose at home. They just they've routed everyone at home. Like a destroyed the capitals at home on a lie. Didn't take even the plus one and a half which was like minus a ton Scott swept in that that suck. And I have Denver and they're getting mop right now. This is a terrible Wednesday. Yeah. Do you have anything else for the show Thomas? Tommy Canley if I'm gonna talk about this this weekend the two-game series. He just proven day after day that he's just so back. He's disease down the one five four now easily my most trusted guy the pen. Just eight. Yeah. I think he's number one. I know I still go Vena. Out of those two very solid tube. But you never know sometimes out of you know, can have that control issue that was considered a little bit awesome. He's been you know, really better like twenty seventeen version better. Sesa had a good bounce back on Wednesday to shut Eddings three strikeouts. He needed that. After was it Monday. Yeah. No, no Sunday. He was terrible. But Saturday this added I lose track of the days, whatever whether day he tried to hit a home on five hundred feet and failed also shot a Luke void forty one consecutive games on base. He just passed Jiri believe. Who had forty and he's one behind Scherer from just gone my head Zeki human up the heat a fucking laser homerun today. He's just he's locked in men. He's locked in. So over that continues against Minnesota. We get a little will home series. I'll be nice get some guys back and we'll be back here on Monday. So later, this is John sterling you've been listening to short porch. Byproduct of barstools.

Episode 93: Luke Voit - King In The West

"The. Say. Our Todd as five as go the Bosnian love these Aaron Boone the leader his first of the game. Piggies? Just to the first. Porch. It roy. What's up? What's happening? Welcome to another dishing of the short porch presented by barstool sports. I'm your host hubs alongside me on the other side of the laptop my co-host vape got himself, the costs the cloud Tom smoke stops belly. What's going on? What's up just having one of the best entertainment days of the year? Earlier this afternoon. I saw vendors getting ready for battle of winter fell tonight Yankee win in between all that. You can't really beat that. Yeah. I mean, this was an incredible week thrown the NFL draft to west coast. Baseball shots. Everybody will know don't throw in the NFL draft cause you to gain Jones do quarterback we take him robbing the fourth round. Let's not throw that in there. And then the new draft somebody else that got shot today on this podcast will be I will be refraining from any giants talk. But yes, we did do that. Not as faulty got shot, though, have a little compassion Huber, man. Tough tough star for gentleman that guys. Absolutely. But shadow. To everybody who stayed up on Twitter, west coast reading the blogs that you know, pumping out there. It's three in the morning. No big deal. But it was fun. I mean when you're winning like this like do these games could start at five in the morning. I don't give a fuck like this is just too much this team the vied that were get like just everybody's having so much fun. Everybody's putting the ball in play. No one's tracking out. It doesn't matter who the hell is playing any position whatsoever. We're pitching great. I mean, it's just also the only game that really didn't watch in full was Thursday night. And they lost that game. So I think I might have had a plan that so sorry, we don't have a perfect seven or west coast trip at six one right now that's on me. But all in all this is a lot of fun. It's crazy how much of a different spot wherein even from just let's say a week ago and change remember how revealing Sunday afternoon Anki royals. Imagine that feeling we had when the Anki were down six five. We had a five nothing lead Blewett to go down six five with that point. I record was what I believed hen and ten ten point with had just lost. Judge the day before had all these other injuries were just blown a five nothing lead. It was as Lova point we'd won the two days before, but it was just such a low point. And to think where we are a week later. One six out of six of seven on the trip nine out of ten overall guys are starting to get healthier. Everything is just fantastic seventeen. Eleven is nice clean records. Look at. You cannot ask for a better start to this season than this considering what we've had to go through it is simply impossible that they're doing this right now it is impossible with the amount of injuries. If any team this happens any team, they're like what's record seventeen and ten is always seventeen in eleven are any team has happened to their five and twenty three this. That's not an exaggeration. This happens to the meta five and twenty three. This habits the Red Sox? They're five and twenty three. There is no team that has this much death. And we don't give the credits organization of credit, but the guys that just come next man up and even get a camera means next next next man up. Yeah. It just comes in here. He's fucking Tony Gwynn out there. He puts house came even out there, by the way in the free agency makes no sense to me. I mean Howard Dallas Heikal and Craig kimbrel still out there. I think the case can be made the Cam. Maven was secretly the biggest name out there that just no one noticed because this guy just put its he plays all outfield positions. He's fast. He's beaten out infield choppers. He puts the ball all times. I'm yellow care is great. I don't know how how long he plans on being on this team. You know, what you know, what injury would interplay? We get back, and you know, what his role is. But nice gun have off the bench care. Maybe for sure, you know, you got guys like thyroid Estrada coming up here. He's hitting like four sixty in his short stir stint up here feeling the hell out of the ball. I will say. I may stretch out of it. It is refreshing to have a defense on this team. Yes. Very refreshing here. This is entering today. Lemay human or shallow our AP? Although it sounds like, hopefully, they're they're okay. But this is a tweet from Sweeney Murdy LeMay human or shell are having a huge impact in the Yankees infield. And it's less about someone's we tackle place more about turning grounded into outs. The Yankees were thirtieth in double plays turn last year. They're currently tied for thirteenth. The defense is great like any. I have. It's just refreshing to see a up the mental glacier thyroid Estrada's, just very smooth are shelhah. He makes plays left. And right. He made a play at H coming in barehanded. I needn't blink. It was an amazing play because I just expect that from him that play he makes Saturday night where he's diving not really diving but leaning over running a long way into the netting making the catch the giant. I was listening to giants broadcast news like, yeah. Of course, of course voice, by the way. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Sure. It's so reminds me just throws me back to John Miller. Joe Morgan summer Sunday night baseball Yankees Red Sox at Fenway. Nice AC on in my house. I'm just takes me back there there. I don't think it's a stretch or even hyperbole to say, the Giovanni are shelhah and limited time is the best defender I've ever seen the half. Yeah. I can't think of anybody better. No way ODI off the top my head where just told especially, you know, an infielder just total confidence that they're gonna make every single play. And then some it's crazy. And I mean, honestly, we're getting we're getting a good taste of what it was what it would be like if we had Manny Machado. I when he signed when he went to the Padres that'd be like damn it would just be fun to see like him playing third in these ridiculous plays where we got him for three hundred million less. It's crazy any hits the ball. He puts contact every time. He's up. Here's the bowl play. It's crazy Jewish shelhah. Could you imagine in March me telling you, hey, man, or to be holding our fucking breath like our Eric like Aaron judge is like at on obviously hurt. But as if we're waiting Mariah results for Aaron judge. That's what I felt like for GIO or shell today. When we're hearing we're waiting the x rays which were negative, by the way. But it's crazy that we are so invested in this guy, and it's not in a joking matter. I mean, very important to this baseball team right now when McGill harkens back I expect or shell to stay in the lineup. Playing third base tweeted before imagine being told a month ago that an injury to Jeevani or Shelby be a legitimate problem for the drippy that'd be a legitimate issue. Like Aaron judge like we we have to make sure Giovanni or shell is healthy. It's crazy that this is what it's but. Yeah, he's he's plead his way on this. Almost reminds me a little bit of. Theresa couple years ago are few years ago when he made the team sort of unexpectedly just lasted forever, except is actually better than to rice. Well, yeah. But still I think he's gonna last for a while he has to be on this team and orca comeback in DA to sign up gang. He's having a bundle of pliers right now. We need someone to get into the age spot. Even when Stanton comes back. He could go play right field because nobody to play out there. So I I mean, do you run a show in my mind? He should be above being worried roster spot at this point. Yeah, for sure and they were talking about the broadcast today. How when they're backing. And let's say Stanton his back, and he's gonna be the aging and whatnot. You're gonna see a situation maybe where n Horace playing six innings and geo comes in for the final three the more important out to be that lockdown defender. But right now, we have some very positive end heart sounds like he might even be back for the Arizona trip if they decide to pull the trigger but at it sounds like next weekend McGahan horseback in the lineup. So in that. Case I mean geo needs to be playing third and Honey there's no prime. No problem with that whatsoever. I I need we almost need to right. If that doesn't happen. I would I mean, depending on what happens with the Mayhew and or shell assuming the well, we shouldn't assume anything hoping they don't miss anytime. I don't see a reason to bring into our backfires on rather. Just wait till we get back to New York. But I mean, we'll see I I just can't believe I mean, I was looking at the forty minute roster before recording. There is literally nobody left a weaken not de we cannot put LeMay who or or chill on the deal and not there's nobody on the current forty-eight roster. We can call up when geo and down I entitled had to play third, and they sent may out to left. My I the Yankee group chat, and my buddy, John rodent. Tommy Canley the emergency third baseman. And he was completely kidding. But I had all the reason to believe because I don't I don't know who else is left to play the infield on this team. When you said that right now, I thought you were gonna say that he knew that somehow like that's where we're at a point say were Pinchitting J hap was a savvy move. One of the smartest decisions. He's made as a manager. He's a better hitter than fucking Steve Pearson. Jackie Bradley, jR. Yeah. Not even I mean. Yeah. Not even that just like you can't afford to waste Rome on there weren't row or Ford of four wherever you can't afford to waste who's ever left at that point. And you're up a good amount of runs. Nobody on base. Two outs. You don't wanna you don't really need a big up out there. So it's crazy. It's insane. Do you have anything give any tips for how we can stay healthy anything. And I mean, we've thrown everything out there. I feel like I the only thing I can possibly think of CBD. I mean, I don't know look, what's legal, and what's not out there. But I do know that CBD basically seems to work in a lot of ways and can help you in a lot of different ways and extract labs is the way to go. If you're on the CD road. It is a combat veteran owned CBD company out of Boulder, Colorado. They make some of the highest quality CD products on the market, and they have. A huge selection everything from CBD muscle cream. I know they can use that muscle cream. We got sore muscles out there to see the oil tinctures and capture capsules they have something for everyone. They can legally ship these products directly to your doorstep. They offer free shipping in all fifty states to extract labs is the real deal. They're owned by US army combat veteran. They have extremely high quality products that really work. Plus, they have some of the most affordable prices on the market one of the reasons why they're able to do all that is that they produce everything in house in their lab.

Make sure you follow at extract labs on all social media channels for more awesome deals giveaways, and tell them are still sent you. See I did that ad read on Friday for are still radio. And I was really struggling with word extract the entire time. I think I did better. There could be a bit of a tongue twister though. Oh that was smooth and set you up perfectly half to their little assist in dunk action. Yep. A guy that needs to be using a lot of CBD assuming it's legal in the MLB is look Voight. We cannot afford to lose Lou Voight whatsoever. Did I tell you all of you? People listening on the last pockets of the short porch presented by barstool sports that Luke Foyt was going to heat up in the west coast. I actually let you guys down I under sold it. He's not just heating up. He's at super saying mode. He's doing the shit from dragging ballsy. You cannot get him out. He is back to destroying major league baseball than Cushing all opponents that come in his way in L A and San Fran in seven games. He slashed four thirty three with a five twenty eight hundred base percentage slugging eight sixty seven with four homers in ten Rb is my friends. It is no longer. A question if this man is a fluke. The only question now is who is going to compete with him for the MVP. He's only be you're starting first baseman at the all star game in Cleveland. I'm telling you. He's unbelievable. Luke Voight is the most real deal thing. You can come across in your life. He is unstoppable. I fucking love. Luke Foyt dare I say, Luke is no fluke. How's that? But yeah, it's real regional. It's a good romp eight. Yeah. I there's no questions left at this point. I mean, you know, spring training and stuff coming into this season. There were no you're you've been number one fan. But I am sure. A lot of Yankee fans. There was in the back of our heads like, okay? He was great last year. But is he going to be that good? Again. We did get this guy for can chase intrigue for God's sakes. Tayfun? Answered those doubts innocence. You know, a month of great production gang of NIA them to step up. He sitting third seemingly all the time. Second whatever and her now second now, riveting and ease performing way above expectations MVP candidate is not a joke because when you consider what he's doing right now when the Ke's need it most twenty five RBI's saw games. I saw that number today. And I like gasp I thought like what's he at eighteen nineteen twenty five that puts on pace for one hundred fifty RBI's or something ridiculous in that territory fucking team. And that's with so many is outlawed. You would think as more people get healthy more RBI opportunities. It's crazy stepping up big. When the most he's now, what thirty eight games, I believe is on base streak is at now thirty nine thirty nine. It's you. Speech. He leaves us speechless. There. The fact that Brian Cashman saw something in him gave up tree shreve and Giovanni Gago to get him is nothing short of incredible. He's three games shy of Mark to Shehri's record lead record. But number which would the forty two consecutive games on pace, which he had no five that's the longest since. Oh five. So we're a couple games where anyone know as Yankee Yankees since oh fuss longest consecutive history. Okay. Confusing because. Yeah, sorry, I didn't say that correctly. But I mean, he is simply incredible. He hits the ball. So fucking hard. He doesn't give you any free at bats. I feel like he's to every single count, you know, he might start to. But he does you know, you're not getting him that quickly. He works counts. And he waits to see his pitch. You can't even beat him inside anymore is that it's after struggling for about a weaker to start the season. I mean, he's great. I've now made it my mission on this earth until I rest on this planet. My final heart heartbe gives out that I will find every single Greg bird apologists who badmouthed Luke Voight at some point in the last few months, I will find you, and I will spos- you to the earth expose you to the planet for how stupid a human being you were. And hopefully, you can just learn from your mistake. But that is my mission on this planet, and I will do it until I die. If you had here's a topical top coach. Reference if you had the Infinity gauntlet with all the Infinity stones and you could snap your fingers and get rid of any group of people. Would it be the Greg bird apologised? Just just like that. And they just like. Would probably just found what four people at this point. You'd be surprised and birds immediate family. You'd be surprised how many people there are out there. When you Twitter search, Luke void, Greg bird. And you go back a few months not now, you know, I'm talking about current ones. Oh current. I mean you need to fan. Yeah. Birds immediate fan. I even at we're at the stage where Greg birds first cousins or even like yet, Luke Voight, man, he's the real deal. I we don't need you to come back. 'cause do I feel like no one even has Greg birds number left in their phones. Like, if you're a family member friend, you like is hopefully goes to Kansas City and has a decent crew there. But. Yeah. I mean, look void. He's just I listen I've been wrong about some things in my life. And you know, I get exposed here and there, but the sunny gray thing for sure, but I've been dead on about Luke. Void I told you guys from the start. This guy's just fucking special sit back and enjoy the right? He's he's gonna take us to to the promise land, another guy who is really risen to the occasion this year with a starting rotation have been very good. They're good probably strength has been starting rotation but subbing in for Severino was dinner Herrmann. He pitched on Sunday. He was good for five or six innings. I think the six inning. He lost a little maybe got a little tired. Maybe he, oh, he ain't nothing leading kind of relaxed on it gave up a few runs, whatever. But for those first five innings when the game was in hand not in hand, he was absolutely filthy. And I mean now he improved his fifth win on the season. He's he's fantastic. Yeah. He I mean five wins for thing. Talk about guys stepping up when it's needed to mingle Vermont in that category. Two five you told me to have five wins in April. That's another one of those. If you told me things it does stink little bit that he gave up those four runs and a six inning. Because I was getting ready to get ready to send out tweets and every left the game. Like man the Mets were killed. I have a guy like Mingo her on on starring rotation which is still true. But Harry, Trump do that. But it's tougher the tooth out after gives up four rounds. But his he was I think it was down to guy checked after five innings, and it was down to one point four seven at two point five six. But whatever he's been he like I said on the last episode he's on his way to becoming my most trusted starter on all the on Ella baseball. He would be the best pitcher right now on the Boston Red Sox or the New York Metropolitans. He would right now by far. I mean, they stink. Both those teams. Absolutely. Think starting rotations are abysmal fucking sin. Gore. Get him in a little bit. He's the biggest fraud in the planet. He got what was coming to him this weekend, which is nice to see. But to her mom, especially Domingo on a Sunday. Where Domingo's literally Sunday in Spanish, you're not beating them eagle hormone asunder. You have legitimately no chance of doing that. So yeah. I mean, he's part of the next man next man up. Fuck you baseball God's mentality. Where it don't matter who were thrown out there hit don't matter. Who's at the plate the Enke's winning baseball games. They won eleven of thirteen which is the best record in major league baseball in that span, which is remarkable that they will do that with this team where we Mike talk men out there. You know, IRO Astrada yet guys just did not expect to be on this roster right now. And they're the ones who were coming through the most playing similar to what the royals did when they made their. We're just seeing what contact is like, you know, when you put the ball in play things happen. But you also on the flip side are also getting your dose of power. We got that this weekend for mister Gary Sanchez. Welcome back. We actually got off of the eye. L that was a nice little surprise. He has responded. He's a little slow. His first few games striking out a little bit on Saturday. He hit a ball that. I did not think was gonna get topped they measured at four sixty seven. It was the second furthest homerun at oracle park used to be AT and T park. And and today. I don't know what the hell stack has doing. I respect computers. I'm gonna let I'm going to say right now if I could be Frank the computers were wrong. Gary Sanchez home run today that cleared the left field. Bleachers was not four hundred thirty feet, but it might have been formed thirty yards. It was a fucking bomb and yesterday's two would seem like four sixty seven was I still this is something we agree on. We've talked about before there has to be a better way to track homerun distance because those balls just would go further than that are used to believe that that's how it works. I don't know how they do it. But I'm convinced that there's a better way to do it. I'm Vincent are judges home runs of seven hundred feet. Gary Sanchez to know how it some. But you did mention whatever oracle park ATP. I want to say, I don't know about you. But AT and T part I have been there. And it's one of the most beautiful parks visit their TV or I think of watching baseball when I'm younger eighteen park is one of the ballparks. Always think of and I'm not sure why I think I know it's because the Anki that ain't might because of Barry Bonds, just constant Barry Bonds highlight. Yeah. But I just always think of, you know, balls flying into McCovey cove, the big love out in left field. I know I just to me. It's one of the I don't know. It's one of the ballpark's always think of when I think of baseball, and I think it just because as a kid Barry Bonds was so good. So we'd always see in place much. But I doubt just having that went through my mind. And it was cool watching them play. They're all weekend. Is it me? What's going on with that? I love it, by the way been there. Many many times they should date a girl out there. We literally are dates out in San Francisco. We're just to go see the giants play. So it's kinda cool. Got the best of all worlds out there. It's right on the water to it's very sneakily cold because of on the water. Yep. San Francisco the whole Palo Alto San Mateo area. It's so bizarre because you can go ten minutes north, and you need a fucking winter jacket, you go ten minutes south, and you need a tank top like at the weather differences are show drastic compared to what you east coast. You just don't see that happen. But San Francisco very very beautiful on the water. Awesome ballpark. You haven't checked it out at? It's your listen do it immediately because it's great. I will say that number one of. It is number one. It's not one bit. I like Kansas City to also really nice. I haven't been to that many. I need to go to Baltimore this summer. I have not been the Baltimore. And I've been there. I was younger. It's nice. I think it might be a little bit over hyped. But it's it's nice. Okay. I like new ballpark like they're all redone, and they've sort of followed that Camden Yards model. But I don't think it was. I mean, it's nice and the area around. It is really nice to baseball feels like baseball. But I think there are other nice one just statically real Sino. Te Gary Sanchez, having eight home runs thirteen hits his hilarious. That is insane back to oracle park AT park. I'm shocked. I really haven't messed that up yet. But is it what's going on with that centerfield 'cause it's only three ninety nine what it might as well be five hundred like sticks occur ninety nine even make whatever. Whatever. Whatever high H I feels like five hundred like when. Gary full out Saturday night, which I thought was going to be a second. I thought that ball was ticketed for like LA, and it got caught the wall. It see. What is is it a visual thing because I don't know what's going on. It seems like it's show thought a dead center, and it's not Yankee stadium's further. Yeah. As I saying, it's three ninety nine just fact checked B. I'm not sure if it's just something with the way, it's like the air the wind on the covert, whatever makes it tough to hit a ball out there. But yeah, I agree. It's relatively shallow. You rarely see centerfield under four hundred feet. Yeah. I agree. I don't know. So we're. Yes. So I mean just overall this team is playing off the charts. I will say weird thing Saturday night. Louis Sesa comes up to the plate. He pitched he's swinging like fucking trying to five hundred foot home run. And they said on the broadcast the Yankees were not happy with that. Especially with the injuries. We have and how we had pitchers in the past get hurt while trying to swing in run the base and all this says up you're trying to sixty six hundred foot home run. And as a result. He kind of like tired himself out, and he came out there for the second inning and got shelled, and and force the keys Shabina nine thousand weird thing would you notice with that? I mean, there's part of me that thinks if I'm in that situation, you know, I wanna get up there. I wanna take my hacks. I wanna hit a home run. But you gotta be better. I mean as far as whenever I see key at the plate at in L bar in an in an L ballpark. I'm rooting for three strikes. No is Matt's not office shoulder. I guess four would be ideal. But gotta deal with running the bases. It's so stupid that the NFL still hasn't used the D H. I think it will change soon. These people is NFL fans were like, oh, this is real baseball. No, it's not your idiots hate people. It's just awful. It's it's makes it a worst product for baseball teams will be better with the D H and the double stole Maris to switch and create its strategy. It's not just makes things more difficult. I think at this day and age, it doesn't make sense anymore or anything I think that if these NFL dinosaurs are so insistent on keeping the h that's are not age. That's fine. But if in AOL. Team is in a game. It has at the even tonight park. That's what I think should happen. I just don't I hate seeing Pinter's at the plate. I say chin Wong still. Yeah. For sure I mean, I felt that would Domingo's today when he's up there trying to bump the guys over and just like I'm getting terrified here, and he takes a full full hack with two strikes. Jesus man. I think those intercoastal muscles and all those oblique you could. You could see maybe that won't happen. Real quick labor. Tours was struggling a little bit six game hitting streak now hitting three forty six in that span. Three multi hit games five RBI's three extra base hits. And that's been. So he's he's back to hitting the ball the way we thought which we weren't concerned at all. I mean, he was he started the red hot. He just had a little bit of slump. But he's he's back home, which is nice because really the three mainstays have been glaze over vote labour. Void in Gardner is there to right? And but right. He's technically a starter at the start of the year. I'm a little worried LeMay, Hugh. I well, actually, I'm working with both guys. Although they did say when he was walking to the clubhouse, and he seemed okay, I just don't like that. I don't like that whole situation where he I don't know if these are any indication they're both going to be out months. Right. I think this is now the most I don't know how you would prove it's the typically just on the eye test. The feeling this has to be the most injuries. He was ever had to endure in any sport. It has to be. Yeah. Especially early. Yeah. For sure. Injury update Jacoby ellsbury. He's not that far along a lot of continue to pop up. Just like we said there. There's no more excuse. There's no more actual injuries. Is this the creating up is this the greatest insurance fraud case that's ever happened in American history without a doubt. But the thing is who I guess the insurance companies the only people that would be pissed imaginative ellsbury doesn't care. Could you imagine? They took the Yankees to court. And there's like, yeah, he wasn't hurt this whole time and just gets exposed. Yeah. Jacoby ellsbury on the stand. Like, yes. Just Rodney buffet. Hey, look, you can run Jacoby can run is the swing of batch. They a treadmill. I they're like, okay. Can you around? And then they're like now, it's time for the dreaded flat ground. Can you can you run on the flat ground? He's still can't I don't I don't know. What's going on with? It's not kits. The disaster. Good this Astor. We don't deal with them. No, Syndergaard Saturday night, the Mets tweet out send a raven or just reach week for your chance to win a Noah Syndergaard game of thrones bobblehead. That's just him sitting on the throne gag. I mean, we're putting raven puke where putting pitchers with a five nine year. I on the throne actually, it's way higher. Now. He got shelling. Yeah. You he got shell on Saturday with six point one nine if my memory serves me correctly, but is double check. Nice we go. No. You're just awesome. Sure. Mets fans love you fucking loser. Six point three five. Oh, I overvalue them a little too much. So that's the guy finally stymying we've known forever that he's the worst person ever lived one of the worst people ever live. He's a fraud. He's a Harto. He's an asshole. But now, but in the back for head would always be like well guys at damn good pitcher. Ninety nine moves across the plate. And it's kind of we don't even have to make concessions anymore. You just the bad pitcher a bad person? I hate him. We want we win. He's the guy that called himself floor himself for Jesus Christ. I will say we both seen avengers. We're not really spoiling much. I think you've seen. I know what you're going to say don't even say, I think you're gonna say, okay. Funny. Funny, reveal whatever if you okay. I think I've said enough though that if you seen vendors, you know, what I was going to say yes that is just what's happening current Noah Syndergaard. Okay. Okay. Actually, I think that that was perfect. We didn't split on thing. But if you've seen it, you understood what we're. In the Boston Red Sox, really stink. They nobody knows children in Boston eight this weekend because Friday night, the Red Sox decided according to Jack rob is the Boston Red Sox guy. They wanted to watch Guerrero hit instead of play baseball. He said that not my words hits. So they just didn't play the game children. Do not eat that night. Saturday lose Sunday lose Chris sale sale day stinks. Jackie round junior. Apparently, the best center fielder ever live cadged everything whiffed on a ball. He stinks. I will never understand the narrative that Aaron Hicks is worst field in that guy. Just don't get it. I sure he makes them cool plays. He also makes them horrendous place in centerfield Nottage, and he hits a hundred tobacco that he thinks. He's getting outed out of Boston for sure. Yeah. I remember when the Anki is compared Aaron Hicks to him and people laugh that aren't Hicks could be compared to Jackie, Bradley, jR, jacked rather junior so much better. Now, we laughed I know Hicks hurts us is tough to say at this point. But when he's healthy, very good. Now, we laugh at people who try to compare Jackie, Bradley. They're hicks. Yeah. Very bizarre narrative. Moroccan itch. This whole thing she was in a kayak on Saturday. I don't know if she was dead and see if she was there today, but something I just didn't I didn't need. It was just like imagine planning this out and not thinking that the bay was going to be windy, and you couldn't hear a word. She was going to say she was to realize that either no any real little, and she's just paddling away out there. And I mean, she was just not I don't wanna be a knock on her. But I mean like you just couldn't use mayor democracy during the game because like some some idiot in terms that would be granted if we put her on the bay, and then we just lost Meredith the whole game. Basically she can't provide any insight. 'cause we can't hear because the wind is just howling a tornado. What did you think of by the way, speaking of things, the I mean, I didn't see it adds it? We didn't see the until like the tribute. But what did you think of the C Sebastian thing Friday night? I didn't see it. I'm actually see what they gave him. I think it was in between. Let me look up the exact details. I know is in between innings, but they gave him a a I guess a little tribute on the scoreboard since he's from northern California. Oh, kinda got a standing ovation. The crowd and stuff any knowledged though. It's pretty cool. But also a little odd into does have really no ties to the giants. But I guess just growing up area. Although it was cool. I thought I didn't expect it. But I think it was cool confirm. He deserves deserves although more Saturday streaming the game. And when you streaming game like on MLB streams, whatever the chat is always just so bizarre. I think that's one of the least talked about things in the world because we all use read it for streaming. NBA games are an OB games. Whenever you know. You wanna watch? Someone, you know, you're not funny your TV, but you wanna watch game whatever the chats in those things are absolutely off the roll like the rails. I have no idea how you keep a conversation with those people because thing is going mile million miles a minute. Just insane off you've ever experienced that. But I came across a comment, and it was from this guy. Mr. T, I tweeted this out he asked always watching the Red Sox, humid thing or know what it was. But he says who is going to be better once they hit their prime Raphael Denver's or Vlad junior. It's maybe the worst question ever asked. It's gotta be a true. I don't know. Because I pretty sure he's backing it up after that idiot or at Red Sox fan same thing. I mean that is a grazie crazy crazy thing to say, I mean, Denver stinks. That one home run that one time how many times you think we're gonna see that highlight about homerun off Chapman. I've already raised it from my brain, by the way that highlight gets shown so much. I was there for it was the first bar. So the ballpark that was tough corrobos knows the shutout guy. Jos MC fly. I was his sort of come like coming out party. Oh, yeah. That's right. By someone did reply to my tweet of that that question with Evers asshole. Steve on Twitter, Steve g whatever. And he just by Denver's is twenty two years old who was a top ten prospect in baseball. This is not a silly question at all she likes those people that just need to get snapped off the planet like Thanos just to snap away. And then you're gone. E thing else year trying to be a bucks fan today against the Celtics that did not go. Well, the Celtics actually destroyed them. So that wasn't great. Oh, the raise started using the don't eat thing. And the children are starving. Tweet kinda funny now what is it? I don't what the children starving thing is. I didn't see the race connection the raise. Let me see. Yeah. Yesterday tweeted, the kids will not eat free today. Hashtag raise win pretty funny. And then today, they tweeted let's go eat after they they beat the Red Sox. It's just very very tip of the caps. The raise alva- job there. How much longer do? You think the Red Sox will keep putting that up? They gotta stop right. If you think. The baseball team. What you wanted to tell you? It's crazy that they have no injuries. Really, the they stink. Chris sale is just bad. I was so mad. I was checking the. Like score mobile app. Just checking the pox gore. And I saw was two nothing after the first and his his era went up to seven point seven seven or something for nothing in the second. Seal height is now they're unearned runs because Jackie Bradley, jR, being idiot. But I was just a little bit. We're at the point now where they're so bad that Chris sales is pitching so bad that you know, we're rooting for him. Just give up every like don't even care these giving up on our runs. You know what I mean? I want them to be earned runs that your aid keep going dance all the way down to six point three. Oh after today at one point two you start worrying about the raise like as a legitimate. Like, we're gonna be battling with these guys. The this is this is last year's Red Sox. And we don't worry about the Red Sox. Now, I'm on my radar. They're on my radar for sure I was still. So I saw someone tweeted at us at what point do we start rooting for the Red Sox in these right socks? I race series. I was still other for the race this weekend. 'cause I know there are cloaked your, but I mean, I want to bury the right stuff only. Make sure the Red Sox are twenty feet on there. And then folks are tension to the raise. I mean, I'm you know, quote, unquote worried right now the threes will be a good team all season. Yeah. But I still think I mean the thing is only a game and a half tap with all these injuries. I think right now view, you know, give me even on both sides of the Yankees are definitely the favourite win division over the race. Now, the raise aren't like, they're not untouchable. I mean, the Red Sox swept them in Tampa. So that there is hope also. I mean, I know they have all these weird strategies chip, they're not that good. I know the one ninety games last year. I know they have I don't know. They just can't be glides now kids really really good, really good. They're gonna give us problems for sure they're gonna give us a lot of problems. The law. I'm so mad at myself for not taking it. I haven't been betting recently. I don't really bet baseball. I don't want. I know one that will get me into the cycle. But the Red Sox were minus one fifty I thought about pounding the raise I mean. Yeah. But I mean, cell stinks. Last knows as like sub to on the razors better than the Red Sox on bras by that line sale at homes always gonna be that number. I kinda surprise it was that low. I thought it'd be one ninety. I don't know plasma is. I forget the Glasgow was the posing pitcher. Yeah. I mean at this point. Yeah. It's bad line. They didn't really have much chance today. So it was a it was a great week for us six six one west coast so far with two games left. And we were thinking like, hey, like six and three best case scenario like where already six months great. I stay my buddies place this weekend and watch the games. And then we went out, and I was a little concerned that like mine editor my whole routine of the day is brushing, my, I know, it's brush brush my teeth all the time. But when I brush my teeth with quips it is like a whole different ballgame. And like, I keeping going the way it is the routine is perfect. So this quips dot com. You guys get on the ship. It's time for spring cleaning and quips has got easy way to start. Would you brushing habits in just two minutes? Twice a day. It can help pave the way to a healthier mouth and mind and now the whole family can get refreshed with quip, the new kids quip as the same two minute timer, which is awesome. I love this time. And it just tells me wanna do my each side when the switch. It's tastic the two minute timer and guiding pulses as their original version with no childish, image gimmicks. So they can brush just like a grownup. We'll feel like when you were a kid. You love feeling like you were part of the grownup circle. You know, you you want to sit. Right. So this makes kids join the club, easy like that. While you're brushing your teeth, which is great. So the new brush is the same as the original just tweaked for sized size down mounts. Kids are inspired the rush better and more often with oral care that looks and feels like the products the adults in real life us and proud to use quip, and they helped develop a grown grown up routine with without childish gimmicks. So as we been through before on this podcast, you got the two minute timer, which pulses every thirty seconds to switch sides. It's fantastic. They also, and I love this little thing where it comes where the holder, and you stick the holder on a wall, and you like you don't have to put in your own little toothbrush holder its own shoulder, which is just awesome. I don't like my toothbrush hanging around with other two brushes. I like to be singular and alone from all the other gyms don't need that. So here's what do folks you'll love quips. I love quips. We all love quips over a million people are happy with quips. You gotta join those people so quips starts at just twenty five dollars. And if you go to get quip dot com slash portrait. Now, you get your first refill pack, free F R E E. She got a go. Go get you. To get quip doc on the G E T Q U, I T dot COM slash PO, RC H right now and get your free refill pack, and then the deal starts twenty five dollars is that unbelievable. Quips quips quips. Anything else we got here. Tommy anything else. Michael pay isn't calling the game on Tuesday. It's. Fuck who is it? Jeff nelson. Jeff knelt, not the former Yankee. Yeah. He's doing play by play. Yeah. With kenny. I couldn't believe it must be doing play by play. Well, okay. Whatever the cans doing play by play and jelly. I have you ever Jeff Nelson call game. He's never done for the ANC. He's forgetting something that's can be a little wild ride there. So that's on Tuesday CC. He's what three away from three K. Yes. So that so you would think I was happy. He didn't get in his last start because you want him to do it in a winning effort and pitching well e o wanting to get it in garbage time when on five nothing what not don't eat that. So hopefully, it gets a good start going on Tuesday. And then Wednesday thing is a day game. That's nice little day game Wednesday, and then we get home, but should be nice. We've been on the road for a little bit with dominating the west coast vanquishing are opponents the king of the west. So I mean, everything's good man feeling good. Come back home got Minnesota and Seattle which are a couple of tough teams. And you know, we're gonna keep learning a lot about this team get some guys back, but. Good to be Enki fan right now. I want to say a lot of getaway shit. The guy's been playing a lot better lately. Always last like five or six games. He's hitting over like three thirty getting on base. Whenever you get some Basie steals like any basically, Billy Hamilton, still seconds. Those third comes. He basically creates his own runs, which is just a huge. Plus and he plays a good defensive position. We're gonna need them especially for shell is down for a few days. So tell back a little bit the guys actually playing he's actually proven his own will that right now? So good for China. Wait. We're happy for him short porch alum so shot at the Elliott who wrote a blog about hot baseball guys include Tyler Wade, and then a girl DM Ellie, and to that she knows Tyler from home sent him the set in the blog and ever since that point. I think he's been on so credit Ellie Schnitt for tala Wade's recent success didn't think I'd ever say that or credit us for interviewing that, and we actually told her to include Tyler Wade, so actually credit all of us. Tip. The cackle all of us. We're doing a good job over here. I do want to say before we go. Oh, eight. So you saw vendors. I guess we won't talk. We to spoil anything game of thrones game of thrones in half an hour. I mean, I don't know what to expect. I'm already kind of sweating. I'm already also feeling it might be a little bit let down, but I don't believe it because it's gonna be forty minute battle. And it's tough to really fuck that up, but a lot of shit's down. I'm someone who I don't necessarily care about the the battle scenes to me or not as fun as like the politicking in the backstabbing, and the strategy that to me is always more interesting. The big reveals care. I care who's going to die. I do care is going to die. I will say this. Here's a semi hawk game of thrones take is that I feel like character deaths now will somehow sting kind of sting less because there's only threats. What does like three weeks? Now, we're never gonna see these characters again. Anyway. So losing them. Now does stink. But I read lose the character now than you know, deaths were harder swallowing like season three or season four. I think I felt a similar way with ventures because this was well, yeah, don't say what I'm not really not smart. I mean, you know, this is coaching the book on face three. They're going to move on with a set of new characters the newer characters, and some, you know, the older people some people had just didn't die. Probably just won't see like again, you know, like, it's just the way it is. So like that's the dead. But I told to get what you're saying with that. I'm very very much in agreement that being said, I hope I become anti brand guy. I think too many people like her and the whole ninety situation was so used useless. And I'm so with you I didn't need I didn't need any of that. I honestly don't give a fuck about pre-and. Shit that brand became a night that who cares? Who cares about Brienne who they're always such a great? You're such a great scene. Like, not really to me the problem with game of thrones. To the first two personas has been they've been doing a little too much fancied service. Yeah. Even forcing they become too self self-aware like they're trying to force the brand torment thing. Little bit too much trying to they're trying to be in on it too much. And that's what makes him thrones. Great Blair, fellas. I hope she gets killed immediately. Because of the trailer look like she's on the front line. Hope. She dies immediately becomes a white. Walker torment has the killer, and he just fucking rips her head offer something now, it'd be go. You know, that's going to happen. She's Netflix dying in either Jamie or torment is gonna kill her hundred percent now. It'd be good. Yeah. Fuck brand have your agreement. I was Fran basically called me a misogynous because I didn't like the brand ninety situation. Get the fuck outta ridiculous. That's insane. I think she was serious crazy crazy people in this world before we go before we go one to give a little shout out to one of our dedicate. Listeners big story. Taylor Jackson Taylor hit me up over the weekend. I'm going to paraphrase here, but base he's been going through to secular cancer. Which is you know, that's hard. That's big deal. He said C T skin came back normal. He's not a hundred percent of the woods, but things are looking up. And then he's been in touch with an organization called stickler Cancer Society.

"The. Our tied at five as go the body. Love these Aaron Boone the leader his person out of the. Out of the game. Three. These. Just to the first. The fortune ROY. What's up? What's happened? Welcome to another dish of the short porch. I'm your host hubs alongside on the other side of the laptop gummy smokes dumpster by the classic cloud. What's happening? What's up? No. Are I didn't leave my room all weekends this? This is like this was as quiet week as I possibly ever had. I just didn't do a single thing. I slept. Most of that Saturday is taking naps. It was great. I love it. I've been having I had been having a lot of those weekends yesterday. I was I was out of my house a lot. I went back to Fordham saw basketball game. We're really poor in your court set. Right. I mean, I want I don't know if there's such thing as courtside at Rosehill, like, I know a manager on the team like you gotta tickets, and he was like, yeah. Like we had front row seats. But like it's not like that pristine, there's not. Oh my God. There courtside like we were like there. What do they call it? Knicks game's celebrity row celebrity. Yeah. Roar whatever. Did they went it wasn't now? So they were up eighteen at half. They're up twenty with like eighteen minutes to go. I bet them plus two and a half like all and all my friends, we've been better plus to have money. You have here. We're counting our money at halftime. And then Duquesne went on like a forty four to eighteen run like twenty four to four on at one point. And for them lost by eight no way. Yeah. Classic Fordham basketball, you live in when you can't buy threes. Right. Hey, live by the three die by the. I love that. We kept by threes. As a good shirt. That's awesome. But the warriors sell that that would be. Yeah. That'd be the fuck. You like shirt to the world. Like, yeah, we three oh my idiots. So we're still here. It is beverage have recording. This. Pitchers and catchers reporting this week thank fucking God. Like, we some look forward to. We're gonna have real people on a baseball field. Throwing the ball around hidden doing all that stuff. Great. And no one is still signed. I mean, there's like a hundred still free agents. It's the same story every week. It's just it's just crazy and crazy as as we get past football season, and you know, marches around the corner before you know, it's March madness. And who knows if Bryce r-maine Machado Dallas cycle. All these guys are gonna be on the team. It's fucking insane. Something's gotta give. I mean, it is. Domino hostile fall. I think once Manny or Bryce sign the other one will sign right? No one's gonna sign until the other one signs. So we might forever. Yeah. It's just a game of chicken. It's it's it's been one of the worst. This will go down as I think, you know, this offseason. We'll get out major black guy for baseball. I if we if we do have a strike a couple year a couple years from now that will look back this offseason as a major reason why I don't know if you show a voice on the Michael can show. But k we charity that in. Void was there. And they asked him about this. And he he such a happy go lucky guy so positive and in the moment, they asked him about Machado Harper, which hopefully in the next month, we will be last him in person. No, maybe one of what do you think about your new team price? What we can ask him anything about you new teammate, Bryce, right, right? That will be hopefully the question we ask him. But that chaos about it, and he just became so melancholy in. So down. He was like, it sucks, man. He and he and you could tell and it really does suck for a guy like him. 'cause you know, he's in his upper twenties. He he didn't really come onto the scene until now. So he didn't have the he's not gonna get a big contract for years. And if there is a strike into years. That's really fuck him. You know, like a guy, especially if he is no fluke. Yeah. I don't think we don't think he is. You know, he's still don't get a contract like a good. He's still unlike his rookie contract and shit like that. So he's really fucked. If there's if there's a strike for any any sort of time that just takes him out of baseball. You know that just takes away his years before you know, what he's thirty. He screwed. You could see how downing was. He's like he's like, man. Like, I I can't speak from you know, exactly what he said. He was just like, man. Like if it just trying out is like, it's can be really bad. He was just you could tell he was seeing the future, and it's not good. Yeah. I mean think about it for his perspective like. He won't I hit free agency to lease in his thirties. Feel like thirty one thirty two he's not going to be anywhere knee. Or obviously, the free agent that Machado or Harper is now, even if he you know is just average over the next five or six seasons, which is still, you know, I don't I'm not sold that he'll even be that. But let's just say that is average over the next five six seasons. It's free agency. He's looking at two generational superstars who are twenty six years old, nobody signing them. He's going to be a thirty two year old like average like first baseman eased thinking, oh, man. I'm really screwed a half. It's like, and it's not his fault late. It's now it's also the that's the problem with baseball hall this arbitration shit and how if the wait so many years to get to to be at under strict free agent. And I don't know. I mean, you like the anchors should be night. Like, let's say he is no fluke. Yeah. He continues his since the twenty nineteen season. You would not. We like to think that they make him feel good in the game a little contract. But this is also the same team. That's Severino arbitration court over like five thousand dollars. So I don't know. I know these are the Anki is are not like that at all. I don't think with their players where it's like, oh, we'll be a good sport. I mean, it's a cutthroat industry, and they they're they're cut throat as it gets. But the reason the the Reese there hasn't been a lot of news with any of this shit. But the little news is a rumor a lot of rumor report came from Jimmy cat. He's on MLB network over the weekend. And he said this is the first really her dollars in years attached to many Machado and Yankees. And he said the initial offers would slash rumored offer back in December was to earn twenty million for seven or eight years. So if it's for eight years, you're talking like somewhere around twenty seven point five million a year average annual and then if it was a seven year deal, it's like thirty one. Both that's contract you sign up for if you're Yankee fan like, and you know, going into this offseason. You know, you're throw in the three hundred million dollar number around Machado. And if you told me back, then you're gonna get to twenty what that's sane. But the that's even back in December that Concer here's what I think actually happened. So I think that contract was floated around during their dinner they sat down like they even not an official contract offer. But that was like the framework of the starting point and Manny at that time. It's you know, it's mid December. He thought he'd get three hundred million dollars. And he said he said, I'm gonna see whatever else says any walked away from that contract that in that offer the Yankees set of Whitman for no, I mean, there's no way you could affor- seen right? Come in the next month and a half, no wet. So after that, the Antes decided, okay, we're gonna get to low here on the cheap for five hundred K, you know, the most like, you know, low low risk high reward contracting possibly give someone and and then a few weeks passed after. Okay. Well, we're gonna get digital menu. And we're gonna pretty much move on. And now manny's kind of sitting there, and I feel like manny's regretting take turn down that two hundred twenty million dollar for because pretty much when it's all said and done if feel like he's not gonna get much more than that. If he gets more. No, yeah. It'll be with the team that he probably wants to sign with less than the inky. First of all, you know, like, I don't I'm not sold that this is true necessarily believe it, I believe it. They were big. They were. Yeah. I mean, I don't I don't know that a truce. I don't want just treat it take. It totally at face value and act like it's gospel. When we don't know that a true, okay? If it is true. I kind of agree. That's probably how it went down. And like, I don't think you could lame either side if that's the case 'cause Machado seven to twenty. I mean, you know, it's easy to say all of course, you take that. But you know, he looks at other contracts that big free agents have gotten throughout history. And he look he says, look I'm twenty six I'm five years younger than our pool halls are era. Whatever you not to be able John Carlos Stanton has thirteen three twenty five by the guy get longer years. And you know, just he said I'll see what else I could get the keys weren't going to be held hostage team. So they made other move. So if that is the case, then yeah, I mean that just sort of unfortunate for both sides. But. I don't know. I mean who knows it is if it is true health. I mean, he's talked to Bryce Harper. Right. So that's an extra point. Which move Harper has met with the giants. Apparently the meeting went twice as long as they expected it to win. So well that all their big guns at the table. And the report the rumors reports are that the giants are offering a deal, which is what we've both said you should offer to what these guys is is shorter years bigger average annual value. I actually disagree. I don't. Yes, I'll go warmonger and less only with them specifically because they are twenty six. See if this was like a thirty year old hitting the market then. Yeah, I'd say totally let's get him for years one hundred fifty million dollars or something because we'll get him in their prime years and for a ton of money, but they are twenty. I know it seems like nobody in baseball like understands that they're so you'll like you're going to get them for their pro. I think everyone's like, oh, all these other free agent contracts haven't worked out Josh Hamilton Alber pool halls era, you could say towards the end, obviously didn't work out. It's like they were all thirty. They're all in their thirties. They're twenty six you're paying for their prime years. You could give them you could give them ten years, and you would have them for their entire prime. And like when they're thirty four thirty five. That's not like, they're exactly old washed up someone on Twitter this weekend in a little back and forth. I was doing with them. They call Manny Machado, Bryce, Harper aging veterans. I mean raising. I mean you Eddie. Idea what that means to work aging or vet like, no, they're twenty six and it's not with Harper. It's but both guys it's not like they Harper isn't going to be twenty seven until next October. This is wanting sixties. It's all yeah. He's technically twenty seventy turns in in a month, though. He just turned twenty six this is crazy. And I don't know. I I just think that I I know just based off overseeing the Yankees don't wanna give an eight year contract after these these players, regardless our age, whatever so am I saying if you are so against giving that contract out, then why don't you do three you're deal? That means you get him for age twenty six season is twenty seventies in his twenty eight at the do is a free. He's fucking about twenty nine twenty eight and you're twenty nine and you're you know, just give him a bunch of money. You know, what you're going to get? You're you're gonna throw a left hand in Bryce Harper in the middle of Aaron judge Carlson. What do you think is going to happen in the next three years? You can do that. You're gonna have the best offense of baseball. No doubt about it. That is impossible to three four to fix you. And then you have to deal with Luke void then you have to deal garish hinges Miguel heart glacier tours, we've been Aaron hitch even gun those guys yet. So I just giving like I mean, it's not my money. So this fight fight over always says this it's not my money. So who gives a fuck how much paying these people and he he's not wrong. Yeah. I don't always agree with that mindset. Just because it's like, yeah. It's on our money. But it does impact how future spending of the team works shirt. But you're gonna tell me, but I think it's I saying like, and I think that while I do would not have a problem with eight nine year deal for these guys because they are so young. I the flip side of that is that if one of the mindsets out of the Anki is we don't wanna pay Bryce or Manny too long too much because in a few years our in judge. Glazer tour media even sooner gallery, we're gonna have to pay all our own guys. We don't wanna have to have, you know, six mega contracts on the books will then that is when a three year deal or something would make sense. So that you get you know, you get Bryce safe for forty million year over the next two years, while judge Gehring labor are relatively cheap. Right. Then they usually are here. Right. Yeah. You can send Harper on his way to sign her own agent. So in that in that sense. Yeah. That does make sense. And maybe they'll do it. Yeah. It's like tell me three year deal for thirty five million dollars or forty million dollars. Like, yes. A lot of money when you think about like one hundred twenty three years Jesus Christ. But you can't tell me that contract doesn't mention specifically Harper here because I'm thinking the whole left handed hitter. You know, he can play I possibly of it is there's outfield role. You can play him a lot of spots. There's there's room for by stop on the for both for I just think the left handed. That that the Enke's ever so desperately need in this lineup. You know, Greg burning given it to you Aaron exist which like that's really at. It's like that's what we're we're would lefty so youth or Bryce Harper in. There's a lefty in it's so valuable Yankee Stadium. I'm he's going to have the best offense of years of his career in those three years. That's just a fact he's going to and I hate the people are like Bryce Harper is in work that money as he is talking about he had like no protection in Washington. Did you realize that he never had production? You know, they did they give shittiest pitches hit or they'd walk him. His on base percentage is always high. Always will you know, what when you smack him in between judge standing, Gary he's gonna get those bitches the hit and he's gonna have the best offense of years life. I just feel so stupid there. So. This of it is it's just like, it's flabbergasting. Like, I I don't I don't get it. I mean, it's like, you know, these guys are paying for, you know, the sins of these old contracts that were given too much older players. I I don't know it it it really doesn't make sense. I mean, it bring up your Sports Illustrated article now is into everything. Yeah. So there was an article in Sports Illustrated is in the paper back is whatever the physical in this way, it came on the website a little before. But you're the only person still get said that. Yeah, I used to get a Sports Illustrated for kids and the kids that'd be so pumped the kids on. Yeah. They were like, really good. And then just twitches for those around that we just never stopped never stopped it. So I still get just like to my home. But yeah, Tom produc- road things. It's called like the gig economy of baseball. Which is I'd say in the industry, we call it a good read. Said always read it. Maybe we could talk about it was just like talk about house before we went on. So I yeah. How a lot of teams are, you know, going to this method, and he's the toddlers as an example of basically, you know, kinda spreading the wealth where it's more like part time employment at a lesser Radi. Likened it to, you know, over drivers or post mates or delivery people like that. And you know, that the, you know, paying for one big guy isn't the way to go anymore. It's funny to spread it out because you know, you have more platoons now, and you could almost you know, make a better player by combining two players. And he was saying that that is hurting he used examples Brian dosier DJ LeMay, Hugh, Dallas, it does make sense. Why it's hurting those guys and make sense why nobody wants to give you know, Dallas goal or Bryant dosier or anybody like that who's in their low thirties a longer bigger contract when they'd rather, you know, have. Flexibility with younger players who are still under team control. But the my only thing with that whole thing is it doesn't apply to don't think. Harper Machado because of the difference because hopper Machado or so much younger. Right. It was they was they were thirty years old if they're thirty make sense. But it was interesting. And I think, you know, kind of applied to the keys with signing DJ Mayhew, he was a guy where you know, they feel like he could play a multitude of positions. And you know, Jay half was like a lower. You know, that goes spend a lot of money on Patrick Corbin or something. So I think it was it was the first time I'd really seen this year's free agency explained in that way. And we're back to go job as explaining it. As like, you would just reading it. But it was just interesting explanation. I think it's sort of partly explains the Anki strategy this off season bunch of team strategy this. Yeah, I think the the whole article essentially gives credit to the dodgers and how they've revolution as this aspect of. Of of baseball. And the very end was very reaggravated him what they have done obvious. You're referring to the dodgers is to tap into a grown supply of players to divide up the work, especially by leveraging the ten day L to rotate players only six teams in dodgers history used more than fifty players to get the recession. Four of those six teams have occurred in the past four years all four seasons under Friedman. They're they're, you know, GM their wizard GM this kid just runs everything. Right. And each of these past four seasons. The dodgers won the analyst Andrew more than three point seven million people. And he basically said no one has yet. No player for them has started more than one hundred forty games in the last two seasons. Which is crazy. Even think about like, you know, people used to get credit that people could six new games now. It's like, okay, we really don't need you to cause so many people and the the articles credits just how good development has gotten player development whether show many good baseball players now that enough. I need one guy to do a job. You can do you know, you can give guys like X amounts that have a big amount. And you can get the job done that way. So it was just very interesting article a good read as you said. So I've read I yeah. I check it out find it online. And like I said it explain somewhat of the mentality this off season. But I still don't think it explains why Machado in Harper are on site. Now, they did also explain why cut KYW goes really sucked here because he used to be right. He's innings eater guy. Who always it's two hundred now major base closing Faulk about that idiot. Gotten now than the barometer now is throw hundred fifty innings you had a pretty good season. Like, you you made it through your healthy. Great season two hundred innings doesn't matter anymore. So Keiko's really fucked in that sense. I don't know what his contract situation will look like he really isn't having takers this point it looks like really sad. Yeah. Face baseball. You'd rather have with how dominant, you know, super pens. Are you dry? Have five really good innings or good innings than you know, six or seven average innings your. Yeah. I I was on some pockets today and the young kid is fun times like half an hour, whatever. But we talked about what changes are gonna happen in baseball next. Couple of years. I really think one that's coming. Not a rule will yet is rules change. But I think we're gonna go to forty man rosters for the whole year. And it's gonna kill starting pitching. Starting this forty man rosters yet. Because everyone's going to go to the bullpen this bullpen an idea. Exce- floor living priest and twenty five men roster. There's rob saying they're gonna increase it. I yeah. Yeah. I agree with that. I think they're gonna go like twenty six that's been discussing Dame. I go like thirty. You think they're gonna travel with forty people. Let's say thirty thirty. That'd be I think that's still too. I I just think which someone with the need for so many relievers these days instead of just like, you know, one guy throws a few innings. He send down to AAA. And then you bring somebody else back up in like, you manipulate rules that weather. It's okay. Will here's five spots. You don't have to do that. Yeah. Any maybe you'll have something where it's like, you have a you carry twenty eight on your club, and you only can activate twenty six for that day something like that right way. You could throw away a couple of you know, the starting pitcher from yesterday for reliever from yesterday. Maybe that I don't think there will expand too much even adding one or two spots though in an offering a little more flexibility would get the job done. Yeah. It's moved on. We spent a long time on that Severino was on the Mike. Okay show. He he had a few guys on Ian, minted that his he was tipping pitches in the second half a season. And he couldn't really figure it out. And e the only reason I trust Louis Severino in this interview and future. Did you see what this guy looked like on the interview? Did you get a chance to see it? Yeah. He was like swag doubt. I mean, he looked unbelievably confident in his abilities to throw a baseball pass. You e was he's got the sunglasses which I've been trying to. Find online they just they just looked so amazing. He's got a little beard going. He's got a white drescher with the buttons are opened up. He's got a gold chain his his suit jacket is like camouflaged. It's just fire. He looks like the most mental planet. It's almost like he didn't he like he did like the men in black flashy thing. And just forgot the second half of the season. He's like. Yep. Humpback of starting the all star game. Let's go ended like July first in his mind. Yeah. He just which is unfortunate for everyone. But as long as you move pass it that's fine. By me. I did financing that he did amidst the tipping pitches, and he was explaining it to like pretty, you know, indepth than he said anytime he would kinda like motion to third key was throwing a slider anytime. He didn't. He was coming fast fall. He broke it down. He it's so hard to fix that. Because it's not something you notice until someone just. Got you. It's just like an involuntary action and stupid, Larry Rotschild. Obviously had no ability to say this was Pedro, right? What didn't Pedro help him? I'm sure he meant she talked to Pedro he talked about Pedro. And how yet he's Hillary likes. What are you doing it? You just twiddling your thumbs? Like on the dugout in the dugout. Did you see this near? I tweeted out right before we went on. It was the New York Post did a thing on Larry. And they asked the number one question for the Yankees rotation. It's Larry the title is Larry Rotschild knows biggest question of Yankees rotation and coach we like is it himself. I mean, he's he's the problem. He's the problem forever. People. Someone defend him vote. Someone defended him in. I dunno. I you going at me when every other person that liked and re tweeted in comments on it was like, yeah. Larry fucking sucks. And I think it was Larry's like for. I think he was coming on. But I've just had such I've had enough. Larry. He I always go back sent him all times on here. When Sonny gray was struggling. They asked him when he got taken out of the rotation. They asked them as Larry been working with you and giving advice he goes, no. Mentioned coach just that's that's his job. But he wasn't doing that. Someone also said Pineda said like similar things. Larry was guy. Do I I don't know. It's absolutely how he didn't spot. This like whenever there was as your job to do, man. Your Trump to do. But we're gonna talk about spring training storylines Severino's obviously involved in that heavily another minor thing that happened this week. Zach Britton changed his first name in one of the weirder things ever he went, but he was going by Z ACH now Z A C K and his birth name. And he just has let everybody misspell his name for his whole life. Very bizarre. It reminded me of when JR Murphy said call me John Ryan, I remember that like he came. It was like I'm not there. Murphy anymore. Ryan. Hey, my full name like that except counting. But it was. Yeah. Yeah. I dunno weird. I mean to just find it like to finally be like I'd had enough. But I don't know. I mean, I guess I don't blame them. Like, I I would want my name to be right to. That's how wants it Jamaican going that long with your name being sold. Speed totally okay. With it when some wet sometimes like, a friend of mine will accidentally say 'cause like spell check autocorrect whatever on felons when they say hubs ill be with one B, which makes sense because my last name is with one able to beezus like pleasing to the eyes. So when I when my nickname became a thing like years ago, I just want to these for whatever reason, but people will spell it. Sometimes one being just pisses me off just on that the correct them every time, I just cannot imagine having people misspell your first name your whole life. Interesting. Okay. And just all of a sudden you wake up one day and use like, yeah, I want my name spoke correctly. I don't know how Dr. In tweet conversation. He eats he announces via Twitter and someone responded. We said breaking news. I will be going by my legal name Zach instead of stage names at everyone continued to breathe normally hashtag been living ally. Hashtag birth search fell and some responded. I don't care which way you spell it. As long as ends up on the jersey, and it was Zack written twenty fifteen postseason jersey with his signature on it. And then someone said is that game used because that was when they're in the postseason the wild game and Britain responded short answer. No. So that's that's in reference to him not being used in the wildcard game the late innings in a game. Despite having one of the better reliever seasons in baseball history. Buck shoulders like now, we all need to sky right now they lost that game. He's I'm too little. That I respect good. Yeah. For sure I would I would never talk to Buck Showalter ever again after that just a ruining. Just as pretty Meyer. Another kind of Meyer thing the Oakland A's. This was bizarre. Did you see this is a local is thing? I saw your tweet about it. I didn't or like your blog it too. Yeah. I bog. So I didn't see the details. So on February fourth they and this tweak such little engagement from the Oakland A's Mehta couches five hundred thousand dollars something like that. And it had like fifteen likes, but someone sent to me and it said forty four hundred ninety four combined home runs one hundred ninety seven wins. One. Fierce rivalry grab your tickets athletics dot com, and it was the Yankees. And as like video montage a fierce robbery to in the east at his bizarre. I mean that is it had to hit a to reach wheats in fifteen likes. When I got hold of it. And I bumped those numbers I got him the forty five likes. So the fate. I helped them sell. A bit of a ticket suck because people realize that tweet existed, but one of the destr- when you think robbery in baseball. I mean, doesn't your mind Goto Yenkey as like what does that? So this is last year four hundred ninety four combined home runs on ninety seven wins. Yeah, I'm guessing. Yeah. I mean regar- I reference in the blog like I get the trying to draw fans in because last year I blog that they had a game against the Rangers. In April the beginning of the season when everyone has hoped, you know, when people come out and youthful baseball, weather, they seven thousand four hundred sixteen people to arranger scam. So obviously, they want as many people as possible. But like I mean to say the Yankees as have robbery I'm thinking like, there's at least ten teams come to mind before I think of the as is a rival at least. And are we talking you still mad about the jeeter flip you man, like, maybe moneyball or whatever? Looking at the ankles even in the movie moneyball, they'd always talk about the Yankees. But I don't know to to be a rival like I it's got to be a little more to sided. You. Gotta beat us like, yeah. Sometimes in the playoffs. Like, at least once is never have done that. I mean, you they talked the big game to asprin talk the big game. How they're they're Volkan was Super Bowl pen. And they wanna shut us down. They had they had the best road hitting sats in baseball. And then we just destroyed. So I mean, that's I got a kick. My weekend was made when I saw that suite that just that just brought a nice moment to my weekend. I enjoyed that. All right. So that's and that's pretty much. What happens with the aggies this week? I mean, we're talking about Zakhari and changing his name and the Oakland A's calling us a rival. So that's that's fine. We're getting but the good news is we have pitchers and catchers reporting this week. I've been waiting awhile for this. I mean, we're I'm trying to watch this alliance for bullying. It's it's okay. I mean is called basil. Tried it. Really? It's okay. I mean, Trent Richardson score touched on today. Good for him. But in Christian hackenberg can throw football no matter who's the defenders. But I mean despu wrote a tough moment. This is the worst college basketball has been in a while zion's awesome. But I I just can't it's there's been better years. I don't know what it is the I know I agree to usually get pretty heavy into college basketball every this year haven't just haven't been drawn in. I don't know. What's because it should be good with Zion everyone, but says not the yeah. Yeah. Don't get it. Oh by juicy my. Zayn on tweet. Yeah. The numbers L is wild. Where did you get that gif some someone tweet someone tweeted, so I did the video slash one thing if. Yeah that guy. Yeah. I mean, yeah. Has a few likes on it. I was like this looks cool. Didn't I put down my phone? I went to shower came back had good amount of likes Nelson. Bill Simmons tweets it psych. That was going. I'm the bridge to Bill Simmons in Barcelo. I was yeah. The wild little contact has been made. And then then tweet about Zion Williamson default Daiquan guy in Instagram. No. He's like twelve million followers. He always tweets funny. Memes in he used my tweet end. Unlike referenced me, it was just very very bizarre. But what I'm getting at is that there's not a lot going when Rini we need spring training, really really really badly. So we thought we would break down some storylines preliminary storylines heading. In. So do you wanna go first we're gonna do? We'll just go back and forth here. I've got a few listed here. We can just talk about him. Yeah. All right. How will Bryce Harper's late signing impact is fracturing? Do. You think you'll be able to move to New York City? She was bringing this up with forget if it was coli or whoever who is. But like you need time to move into a new city. Yeah. Like just in general like I understand call STAN was was acquired in December. And he and move in full into his apartment till April. And I mean you Bryce Harper shot, whoever you're signing two. You're going directly down the tap your or wherever you go. You have to report right away. I mean training start you're already behind, and I know they're training whatever, but you got to join the team and a few days like this is crazy in the fact that they're just gonna there's no way who can eat just right away. There's no way you can't no. It's that's why I'm wondering how like Brice will handle at Hamco. I had only fit in the clubhouse like Willie play. I will play left like Willie shea. He's clean shaven. Like will keep that clean-shaven. What number will pick? All that. All that stuff is one of the things I'm gonna keep an eye on elegant storyline. I guess we could do the same. Manny Machado who who will will they be able to share share share apartment together. Manny Machado Bryce Harper as they live together. That would actually be hilarious. We signed them both live together because they couldn't find a place in time. And they just be remanded that happening, but does sound like a weird like comedy. I I could I could be part of that. I I would watch that show out wants to show hundred percent mushroom spring training storyline. When Luke wins the job three days in will Greg. Burgess like quit, the sport. So I had one of my storylines was will Greg bird again. Look like, Don mattingley battering. This is actually his Todd shot. You're actually right every spring training, Greg bird. It's Greg bird. It's like three fifty and it's like all that lefty sweet swing. He's gonna hit thirty home runs in the stadium. This Yardena lefty swing this good since Tom Mattingly. I mean, it's been like four straight spring training chillier. I think he hit like eleven home runs. Going. They were going there bombs. They weren't even like short short ones. They were hit out of the out of the stadium. It's like the highway and then he just brakes foot. Yeah. So that's yeah. That's one thing. But like seriously that it will be like they've said its job to lose. But I could see Greg bird how a huge spring training. And I just I I hope they don't fall for the trap again. It'll be the worst news. And you know, it's coming it's going to. And I wonder if he feels any motivation, he such a carefree, California guy. Like you wanna features like coming in will sing got six thousand more chances. Right five thousand nine hundred twenty chances love these. We'll see goes whatever they voids. Void couldn't be going hard. But we has it's just such a it's wild. How different these guys are you like did. There may up is void is the gym rat. He couldn't be more motivated. He's getting up there, and you he's still young. But he's getting up there in, you know, he's still on his high twenties and. You know, he just came off his monster second half he has this opportunity that he has never been given before. And he couldn't be more locked in and loaded every interview he does he's just like I on the prize the prize mcgregor's like, yeah. Whatever time the game guys. Either of either soon promise where my eighth. So. My my next one was speaking like position battles house. Our guy Clint gonna do out there in left against brek. Aren't if thank you don't have Bryce Harper as their starting left fielder in what will Clin Frazier. Take wreck Garner's Dobley he said that he wants to do as wanna see Clint basically back on the field. I mean, he was badly. All the concussions some succeeded to see him planning. Yeah. I mean, we're definitely invested in that because you know, he's our friend. Now, we're both. We didn't eating a follow. Right. I didn't get now still waiting someone actually tweeted at DM. Yo you got the follow it. I'm like, I think I would have known it got the follow. And the guys didn't know how to work Twitter. He was looking at who. Clint Frazier was who followed Clint Frazier on Twitter as like come on. You gotta be better. Not or he was just like just wanna pull one over on you that wanna get your hopes up for like a minute. A definitely worked for like, thirty seconds. So I checked it yours. Knock correct. But yeah, that's definitely top storyline. Clint Frazier, please void walls or any type of hard surfaces. Don't dive, please don't dive don't dive in the head. I don't get. Magic garner. Tries to bait. Him in the first base. Like sliding headfirst is again, this is the way to do it. Sabotages cliff now, I don't think that allow. Clinton said they seem to have a good. Of course. I'm only getting. But definitely one of the top wants to look forward to position balancer. Great and field. We even had a few in a what you know like, especially these last. Yeah. Last year is really birds once position valley really had you think L E our last year and our last year definitely and kill young training. And they were always start. I said starving. Sorry. Sorry for them. They want. All right. And it was juror. Anna's? Also, kind of gleyber in you know, at second. But any rhyming more like spits refine in specific. Yeah, we first base and left field. You guys go at it. I like that that that that makes spring spring training like for the most part is very over heights. And you know, you react to certain things you overreact. Because we haven't been had the Sportin months, but this is going to be very very very fascinating every day. What did Clinton as you? What break on do. You know, what advice would due to me? I like that a lot. It's kinda like football the bunch of these. Every year baseball, not so much. I like this. We're very interesting spring training. Is your gym? You're okay can Gill and Har field of -aseball. Not not that renowned. If I had any play defense. Yeah. Have we any improvement? We've you know, we've been away from for the game. The better part four to five months. Have you improved? Your foot work at all you still backing up in every ground ball hits you every in-between hawk you're catching in the worst ways. Possible not saying your feet. It's crazy. How many things he does wrong playing field? Lakes is one thing he can fix ago. He'll work. I mean, he's got work on like five six six. He's gotta get better. Yeah. God my next one. And we kind of touched on this earlier. But is Luis Severino. Good again like he was really bad in the second half. We're gonna wanna see him improve obviously spring training. I mean if he is getting hit hard again in spring training. Then we're gonna have an issue like he needs to be the the season, obviously won't have to wait till the regular season to be able to really tell. But it'd be great if he has a nice spring training. And you know, that thought in the back of our minds can sort of go away. We're not gonna win the World Series unless. Style right now, we everything works everything fits perfectly with the starting rotation. I think if he's our ase coz you can make I've said this before Paxton is you can make paxton's as if he's healthy. So he'd be on number two than your Tanaka za to really will. He be three hats, really three. Will he be our four? So it all just like we were pretty good starting rotation. And then see see you mix match you'll Johnny lasagna and all that. But the ones therefore be rock-solid Severino's as good as we know him to be if he's a second like that would be the worst if the second half if those extreme train starts on he just getting shelled and he's lost his confidence like two weeks in. We haven't even hit March. And he's lost confidence. That will be really bad heavy into their have would be maybe the war like you can tell me Voy. Void isn't voice a bit of a fluke, and, you know, Greg, grocery the guy you can tell me, you know, garner wins the position that we can all be okay with that stuff. But. Severino has to be good. There's no way we win anything this year. He's bad. It's the fact we can survive the other two we've seen that last year. We can survive out those two hundred as of those, you know, for the most part, we never wait till very, but Severino has to be a nice. You just has to be. There's no other way around it. I think he knows that and based off his outfit. I'm I he has my vote of confidence. So. I guess back to me this one you have on your list, it's very small, but he's one of my guys onus. Tommy Hanley's velocity back. Guy pump ninety eight again, you know, being like, he just remind me a Java Chamberlain so much when he was good in that twenty seventeen playoff run that. I would it would be such a boost to the bullpen. That's already show good. If you had Tommy Canley vintage Canley back to that game. So I wanna see what can lead in the off season to get over that dead arm slash fatigue issue that we never really knew exactly what it was so bizarre. But I'd like to see Canley of Los ni back in being the pitcher. We don't. I agree. I mean, he's not really getting mentioned as part of, you know, the Super Bowl pen or anything. But with injuries and stuff he could become a nice piece in the bullpen. If he returns, especially the twenty seventeen four up another one just Gary Sanchez like how's he gonna bounce back after in awful awful awful season. I he's another one where it's like, even if he has a good spring training. I wanna see it in the regular season. Like, I wanna make sure he's able to hit you know, when it actually matters. But you know, defensively has improved at all in, you know, offense of Lee, you know, did he did he take? It's here's his office into the work hard to get better. And he's gonna come back, you know, on a on a tear, and you know, trying to avenge how awfully was in twenty eight. Yeah, he was one of the group of guys headed down early last week passed in. I think Chevron was part of it, you know, but Voigt bird Clint lot of guys good group headed early which is a great sign. The guys that really need to get the work in are. They already Gary included. And I believe Yvonne tiered to catch tax for two packs, which is good. You know, you got those guys can be gather all year. So you gotta get an in a good chemistry there. I made a joke that if obvio- decided to throw in Gary, you wanna catch me, Gary would, you know, all of a sudden changes mind have plants 'cause I don't know Gary catch ought to be that's going to be an absolute shift show to watch regardless vs improve it or not. But yeah, as we get closer to the season, I'm going to start getting more more hyped up. I'm expecting like destroy or Gary to come back. I don't think twenty teen. I've long said this. I probably been one of the biggest supporters. I I just don't see twenty twenty team such a blip on the radar. I think he's more of twenty seventeen hundred percent like someone I guess we'll get into someone s in DMZ predictions for we'll get into that. Then we could say that question. But the Gary is I really we need to see something I Gary, and we actually we see a lot. I keep know. No nothing else to say, your your your story. Okay. I've got two more. One the both similar, but okay, we'll Troy till whiskey survive spring training without injury. Yeah. That's a good one. Yeah. I like what about almost anyone? But especially him. Yeah. I mean, the the other one had will. I wanna steal ellsbury it will how will he get her? Honestly, I almost forgot about him. Right. Like, what is going to have what you Coby on this team. Is he still going to be ghosting? She's going to be ghosted. I love how last year he was just sitting at home like all year and then randomly in like, July. He had surgery. You couldn't have had like what happened from now. Until that you weren't you were shut down from baseball titties. All you now. Now, any my later labor surgery. Sorry, guys. In be. I'm excited to see how they I don't think there's any way he's going to be on the opening day roster. How do they avoid that? Yeah. Like, how do they avoid that? What quote unquote injury. Will he have to avoid the or do? They just come to. They just say whatever, I don't know why they haven't done it yet. It doesn't. Why haven't they done? What state? The Blue Jays. Did with Tula is understand that. I don't know it doesn't make if we ever because I guess they were able to get the insurance money last year. But if if he's just healthy this year than you can't keep them that might be if he's actually healthy. They'll just actually then then they'll then they'll cut him. Maybe that's it. Yeah. They're basically bringing a spring training. Hope he like falls down a flight of stairs or something in the collect insurance money. Otherwise, there's gonna come. I could see Randy LeVine like sneaking like he has the whole facility on surveillance cameras. He knows where Ellsberg is at certain points in the day. And he. Walks around like a snivelling little rat with like a a giant box of tax and banana peels. He just tries to trip ellsbury like right away. All that's it. Unsure as money, we got it could be like that could be a meet those could be major meetings right now in for an office right guys out of Tampa. How do we hurt to Coby ellsbury this spring training like we need to get that insurance money? What are we gonna do would be that could be a TV show? How did he just? And every day. They mean earning Kobe yet and every day every day at the end, they meet like fuck we almost had him. God danya. But so we're both gambling is what would you say? The odds are that both too low and ellsbury survive March without February March for that injury. Like define injury. Like an injury. It's going to keep them out for the start of the season under his can keep him out for a few days. Now a few days. Let's let's say anything oh zero percent that they both. Like if I guess five to ten percent I'd say plus fifteen hundred that both survives February March. I think it'd be eating higher. Yeah. Plus three thousand you're telling me like not even like a little like tweaked, his, you know, took out a little tweak in something that is voided. The bet is ruled upon if like Jack hurry tweets out like oh ellsbury was an didn't work out today at an oblique, you know, had a tightness. Hopefully like, that's it done. Yeah. I I I'm plus because you know, that's gonna. Yeah. Plus three thousand and then you have to bet minus five thousand for to guarantee to say, we'll get her. Okay. That's an interesting pet Javed anything else. I am a out of stuff nothing like concrete, no prospects that we've had a, you know, all the prospects. They're graduated basically or been shipped off. So I'm gonna look at like some some of the other guy, you know, Albert Abreu estimate. Floreal that base is there is there going to be a breakout guy that we're not talking about right now. But, you know, come April first, but they go. All right. That's gonna be prospect to watch this year right fan grabs actually came out with yesterday Ohno. Yes. Nine days ago article, but re ranked our top prospects foil number one Johnny lasagna to think he's a guy to look out for who's number one floor a floor. Lasagna is a good guy LeGras for in terms of not coming for the fifth spot in rotation. But I think he's gonna solidify himself as the guy who takes over. If C C is hurt like you on that go to lasagna. I think he's gonna. I love I feel he has to twenty four. Do you think he makes the opening roster? There is a question about this in in our DNA, not if there is no injuries on a Hollywood this serves to though he he shouldn't be stuck in triple. But they also have got Debbie. I don't have L never pronounce this guy's name DAV Garcia. He's third. But he's he's far away. He's still nineteen other album. Braille. Yeah. You did mention right. You said that. Yeah. Tight guys like him Clark Schmidt Medina via these guys are far away. Anthony, siegler, I look to see what we got out of him. You know, he's the guy would just talk in the first round the catcher who is the asshole does everything throws left hand right handed his shit. Whatever is do everything play every position. But yeah. So it will be fun to see those guys for sure floral, I think people are going to be climbing for Floreal will be like a September call this year, which which is a change from. Last year. I think he's gonna be on the team for good next year. But you might see September call this year with foil. So, you know, maybe I mean last year, I remember he he kinda like took the breath adamant mouth when he he went. I third the wild pitch something like that. Did you do that? We what how fast you faster than lightning. And he just does everything else. He's he's a very very interesting trade piece that you can get all shit on a four they've been very reluctant to put him in discussions. But if there's ever a big fish out there, we want trade value is he can he throw his name out there on. It's like everyone starts listening. That's how good for dinners the a rotation piece. They're in look to add over the deadline than floor floors have good first few months of the season in the minors for. Sure. Okay. So that doesn't for storylines. Let's go and system dams before we wrap the show. We got our first Yelm here is from is name is dog Chapman on Twitter, which is. Interesting. Voter Tommy in your thoughts on who breaks training gun with the big league club as almost twenty two spots of rocks who gets the last three spots out of char. So if these are the remaining guys for three spots, would you go with so were picking is once you re we've got seven here. So we're knocking floor off Tarpley Canley was Anya. Clint Frazier Jacoby bird, wait. So I guess he's he's three those guaranteeing voice on team. I think it's a really interesting. So birds still has service time there's a there's a chance they stash him down down in AAA for like a few months. I think it's very possible. Yeah. I also could see them wanting. But now, I say wanting I think DJ who could play first base than and Philo and don't need a bird a bullet. Right. So I'll say of those I think. Clint. Because you know, they need another outfielder they need even if he's not gonna start. They need a backup outfielder because you don't wanna have your fourth outfielder Deitch cry you, you wanna have more flexibility who were the other people listed Tarpley Canley was Anya clint's Jacoby bird weighed. I don't think was on you will make it. I think Clint will make it. I think we know the six relief pitchers are locked in. Right. You got big is order. I like Tarpley. I think it'll be I think Kate. I'm gonna say Cain Lee makes it over Tarpley, but they make if they go with eight pitchers they'll just add Tarpley in the I would rather them and a nother peace second Rago, Tyler wait. I guess it. Oh away. This is a big year as big of a spring training. This is for Frazier. Pretty big for weight because he's really not shown a lot. You know, these other guy where it's like even if he has a good spring. Training. We still need to see it in the majors. Right. He puts good AAA numbers. He gets here. He's just really quick. An EMMY he likes. He's I I can play a lot positions game play the outfield. But. If you're up to me, I think they do go with more pitchers. I think they'll go Tarpley in kenley. I think and and then Clinton will be the other guy while and then I just like how do you get rid of Jacoby like it almost makes you feel like they Jacoby thereby default, which sucks. You can't triple eight. You can't he's ill be cut or God. Prey gets cut. Next one. We got is from the kids Z with everyone giving up on bird, and they're being absolute zero expectations. Do you think it's possible? He has a monster year. He's healthy and facing fresh and facing pretty much zero pressure. I responded immediately and said no sent him to the sun distribution at one. Yeah. No. I mean, definitely monster your maybe he could come and hit a little, but I'm not letting myself get sucked in is. You know, what's going to happen? He'll have a good spring training hill. L maybe have one usually has one. He's good for one amazing week where he hits a walk off home run. And a game time homerun makes a few decent plays in the field. And then you know, what? Then you get the Jack curry update on Twitter that he has a sprained foot and the nets Dobro which are the surgery, and then he comes back in August. Would you the whole song and dance again in the same shit happens? I don't I won't get myself into the ship. No forever next one from New York net. Would you rather? Judge win an MVP Chevy win the Cy Young this year. I don't really care to be honest. Well, all about team success more than individuals successor. But I mean, if either we're gonna win that it's a good sign for the team. Oh, if you're looking at it out. Well, then I would take the Severino site. Yeah. I don't really care fair looking at it. Yeah. Yes. Everyone's incite young. We talk with us. He's the most important gotten team right because I'm more confident in judge to be invisible in the MVP to still be solid. Like, you know, the guarantee that Severin is to be when a Cy Young huge. Yeah. We've also see judge goat absolutely bananas in a season. And not when the facial greatly take those numbers with plus homers. No problem. So Severino for sure Andrew men Donka of what are the expectations for Sanchez this year, numbers wise if you have a successful season. What are you taking? I'll take assuming, you know, full health out take like batting average. I think to sixty five I'd be totally okay. With as two fifty almost take on a slice of last year. That's yeah. Sure. To fifty thirty homers, and you know, ninety RBI something like that. I'd love that at the best in Katrin baseball numbers, right know, catchers, topping that real Muto. I don't even think tops out he might have higher than average. But he'll do like into this repeat basically his exact twenty seventeen season, basically that that would be unbelievable. That would silence. A lot of haters play that much him in several Chevron the and he goes back to twenty seventeen. Daria think when a hundred and fifteen so twenty seventeen only played one hundred twenty two games, but he hit. To seventy eight thirty three homers ninety RBI's of something in that vicinity again. I'll be more than happy. Yeah. What will be this is from Mark of softy won't be the deal ellsbury during spring training will leave a chance to compete. It's Wiki talking about it. I just I it's can be he's like the kid. I don't even know how to phrase it. She's like the kid that nobody wants a round, but he has to be there. Like little brother kinda. Yeah. Yes. Stuff like that. He has to be there where he's really good friends with one of the guys and no one else in the front group likes him. He's all he's year, Billy relieves frontal shit. That's what else is this team as he has to be there. You know, 'cause he's getting really friend is just contract is really front as his agent who got address God damnit last one. I do like this. When I say this last it's a little bit hypothetical, which we love your if you have hypothetical sentiment. Those are my favorite DM's to go through the most interesting ones often Kyle Bekker if you could swap out one pitcher currently on the Yankees roster. This season for any of the all time Yankees pitchers. Besides Marian Rivera who would be what? Hm? Pitcher goes to my mind because I think we're all set with a bolt if you gotta go starting pitchers gets off out any pitcher any current pitcher. We've got for anyone in the past. Right. Well, if you have let's say you have to pop starter for a starter yoga now that makes them more fair so between you so you can't swap out for a version of I can't sought out twenty nineteen zero nine CC, right? Has to be no, it's also I touted CC I guess since he's probably the worst starter of the five I like to ship out like Stephen Tarpley, but three more faring safe. You're gonna ship out starters. You gotta get salsa ship out C C for Damola. Roger clements. I can't believe it in do your boy Sasha cone. Yeah. Thought about it. Whitey Ford like Andy Pettitte, I dunno like base headed in the editors prime Clemens in his prime. You're not hitting those guys like ever. It's seal later here. I go. I'm always Clements, my favorite growing up. So he's throw like vintage Clemens on this team. Like, let's go two thousand World Series Clemens like throwing throwing Piaf's bat me that on the steam says he c-. Yeah. I love this. This is just hypothetical suffered and you're the guy in the starting rotation. But damp Clements two thousand Clemens for he's he's all reut it up and he's just throw ninety nine in the knife. Inning. Yup. Andy Pettitte sought any pet is like basically Jay half like visa we want Jay half to be the season. Andy Pettitte would be all set though. He's not gonna that's true. That's true. Definitely better to. Right. Like Whitey Ford. I know we didn't see him. But I mean, why Ford right? I imagine. He was pretty good. Yeah. We we've seen highlights and shit. But thinking think the chairman of the board with pretty good job. I think he'd be just okay. But yeah, that's that's all we got this show. You are going to Daytona this week right now. Now now, I don't think I'm going. Oh that would be a surprise to me. Now. I don't think I have to go. I definitely saw your name on the list. What list I saw listed people are the Daytona? I'm pretty sure you're going. I don't know unless the video our video guy Tommy, but I'm. Let me let oh no Tom lay went up today tone. You. I don't know. I'm not I wouldn't be on. I don't know. We'll see anyone radio that you were going. Dave is like, I know airlines and Tommy like you're probably going to. But then like the next day. He even say that I was after he had more information. I'm not sure I need to go to Daytona. Okay. Yeah. Just look you might be going to. Well, finally, we have pitchers and catchers reporting, and I can talk in wait I need. I'm going to be the most overreacting guy on Twitter like any little thing. By on baseball flag. I think Luke void. There are few Hoke was tweeting out it looks so lovely in Florida, by the way, right now, just the weather's need that right now is it so cold out, but Nevada putting every ball over the fence as more of those videos, come in just on my Twitter, and I'm freaking out because that's that's the simple brain. I have all that's all. I see baseball's back of the stupid fake slowly anymore. College basketball, March madness still months away. That's get some baseball going. Let's get let's go back to Tampa Florida and bring in the good old days. Let's let's get the season cooking. Ready to rock. Yep. We'll see you guys actually. Kids. Shift. Have we just?

Episode 80: Top Ten Yankee Prospect Michael King and Tampa Trip Recap

"The. Say. Todd five ago, the body love these Aaron Boone the leader his person out of the game. These. To the first. The fortune, ROY what's what's happening? Welcome to another addition of the short porch live from Tampa, Florida alongside MacOS. Tommy, smokes, Thomas, Billy what's going on. But I just want to say we are in right now. I think pretty perfect weather like this right now could die in this weather this. So we are at the game earlier. We'll talk about that in our trip that was way too hot. But right now, we are under an umbrella sitting at a table outside perfect amount of breeze Nath too hot this. If I could consistently have this weather with me at all times. I would be very pleased. This is absolutely incredible. The breezy is unbelievable right now. Florida's just the best didn't even rain this weekend rains, usually. Usually what have been the Florida passed a range twenty minutes beautiful out here was sunshine throughout unbelievably sing Florida's. The best could be a better story. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I mean, I'm pretty sure back home. It's like a disaster. Now, we're. Where's the damn aid? Sounds like it's going to be sounds like tough back there. So we're sorry. But we'll be we'll be dealing with. Although I pretty sure it's fifty degrees this week. Oh, all right. So it's just come back with us. All right. So the way we do show. We did a lot spring training. It was unbelievable. I'll probably call the most incredible weekend in my life. I was just awesome. Just the seal the Yankees and all this. So we're going to talk about some Yankee news start. Then we're gonna get into Michael king. Which is unbelievable. Not unbelievable. That's ridiculous words. But it was a great interview interview, and it was kind of short notice on the whim, and it was just an awesome, sit down guys awesome. Good pitcher, you're gonna love the interview. And then at the end, we'll talk about the trip. The whole Tampa trip and go through it. So let's get into it. The start we Severino. Our ase the guy we just gave a nice contract to for years forty million the guy we're relying on I've said that the season heavily relies upon him being being back to normal and being an ace. Well, it's a tough star ready because he's shut down for two weeks. Rotator cuff, inflammation, scary inflammation. Is a scary word because it's very vague word. It can mean a lot of things, you know. So he shut down for two weeks. So I guess he's that was this week. So I guess is probably a little more than we left of that before they can figure stuff out, but he's not starting opening day, which is not disaster. But it's problematic start the year. It's a long season. You know, if it's just if it's just this an income back, you know, midway through April the end of April fine like we can live with that. But for now, scary stuff. It's it's just about as the the words Luis Severino injuries just about as bad as any news. You. Have a spring training. Because I mean, our judge is the most important kind the team. I put Luis Severino second probably at this point. I mean, obviously, Tommy John or something would be much worse. Hopefully, I mean, it's shoulder elbow different. But it's not as L. That's the only worst thing. Hurt shoulder. Not great though, pitcher shoulder. That's like Naga reissues and shit. Yeah. So it's it's bad. I mean, it could be worse. Could definitely be worse. But he is so important to this team. We need him to be healthy. We need him to be good. And if he is, you know. One thing we need to be good. If he's I'm going to be healthy. That's quite an issue in itself. Yeah. It's I mean to see that I gasped when I and he I mean, just about five minutes is in. I mean, I know you're gonna look at, you know, Johnny lasagna, Domingo her mind, Dave L S, but David Hale between him and then see which will talk about it throw tation, which we felt really good about like a month ago is. It's dicey. I mean, you never wanna see race with any of that. Like, you said inflammation is kind of. They're just going to figure out. What's wrong with him in these after two weeks and got to figure out what is causing it to be inflamed. We're not out of the woods yet. I will say it not being the elbow. It gives me a nice I relief because that's disaster waiting to happen and a ticking time bomb, but is tough. I mean, this is not grace. It's an 'cause you're opening day starter fun. Totally fine back before paxon's. You're you're you're to now. Happens. You're three still good three the foreign five is where it gets tricky. Because. CC's? Not starting the year win the rotation doesn't sound like he's far behind, but he's not going to start. He'll probably miss for him. Probably too starts thinking what they're saying. Yeah. It seems like he might probably miss a couple of weeks. I remember he also has the five game suspend right too. So I I would like that. If he's missing it because of injury this suspension kind of work with that forget how that now. Well, so if he's on the deal that wouldn't count. No, no, no, it doesn't count. But the reason so if you have when you have them on the DL they're going to be able to have twenty five men film roster, and he suspended you can't playing short. But I still think it would be smart to towards the tail end of him getting healthy bring him back. Let them serve the suspension play short this ways around it where we can carry on the figure out like an off day or something I think they're going to be able to hopefully, they'll be able to manipulate it. So that the suspension sort of blur is in with the Tra now, it's not I mean, it's it's not even April. So we're not. It's the most desperate thing the world like the finagle, you know, his suspension exact they can get. I'm sure they'll be okay. So Jamaica, her mom and Johnny lasagna sound like they're going to be the guys to fill in for those two. I would pose David Hill is I'm David hell guy. I don't know. I always think he's been consistent. What he comes in for whatever reason Louisa is also name you're going to hear we we talked. It was last episode or two ago about will lose Sesa make start or it will be answered ready. Yes, now, minus thousand so not great people have pointed to Dallas kaikal and GIO Gonzalez still free agents. I would rule kaikal out of kind of mmediately unless Severino's is way worse. You know, it becomes we get news in two weeks. And it's really bad. I'll be honest. I I kind of want I think going for not the worst move in the world. And I think he's cost too much for that. But at this point still, I don't know it's about to be opening day sign yet, you'd think he's. Waiting for certain number. I guess contract. You know, he's not holding out till may he's gotta sign. So right. I might concern. He's a little similar to J, hops, sorting know lefty who doesn't have overpowering stuff amble pitcher, though. Right. But I I I'm not as confident Yankees rotation as maybe a lot of other people are I think that CC is going to be problem all year. I mean with lingering injuries heart stuff, he's a huge question. Mark severino. Who knows snapped? With this Paxton, his a-walking injury bug, basically Tanakh, you never know with his elbow issue. So I think ending a veteran like Donald kaikal. You're pretty confident is going to feed you innings eat up innings if they're going to get him at a not awful contract. I think it makes. What about yoga Zola's? Yeah. I mean GIO is thirty three. Crafty veteran left the not overpowering stuff Cashman his talked about it already saying that they've they've hit him up there. If it is lineup before even the Severino injury. I think probably Assisi and the certainties and all that. And you know, you you in Sergio Gonzalez. He's a good five. I feel Gonzalves out there for a few starts definitely wouldn't cost much. Let's see last last year. He was with the brewers and the nationals. Had some good starts for the brewers nationals. Not so much is very small sample size just twenty five innings. But I think he's a guy you can bring on cheap. I think he's probably the guy targeting because chief he is. And how you know, you don't really Dallas likely send Kyko. It's here rotation the whole year, right? Then what happens when everyone does get healthy. Well, that's right. But I'm saying the whole GOP would make Gonzales more fair. I just sending the when that's minds, but you can just call them. Sure. Wouldn't be a crazy amount of money. Or through the bullpen, whatever. But Dallas was more of a a major move Severino. Right. Really really hurt kaikal becomes more of a play for sure. And then but just the advocate. I understand all that about GIO Gonzalez. The argument for TAOs kaikal that it's just better. So sure they wanna let out and he's pitching the place before, you know, compared him big moments for sure and do you like the ground ball ability from him? I just find it unlikely that all five of their current starters including Louis and are going to be healthy all season long. I think I mean that's already out. Right. Exactly. But I mean, even even after you know, the first couple of weeks sees. I feel like there will always be like one guy who is maybe on the hour something it's like, right? Just rocky start there. I do think we're gonna be okay. I'm not I'm not even close to hitting the panic button. I'm not even in the same room where the panel is right now here, you're ace go down that's concerned Sern, we hit the concern button. We haven't hit the panic. I had my alerts on for the Yankee beat writers waiting to hear any seven a report. Like, we're at that level of like, okay? What's the next? What's the next report? We're going to hear from Severino. Hopefully, it's oh, he's fine. He's feeling good. I've weird feeling. It's not going to be that have nothing to back that up. That's just the gut feeling. There's more to this than he's the he could miss a month or whatever we'll see moving on cici's Tabatha is joining ESPN during the season. Very interesting move. Few people have done this in the past different sports. He's doing fifteen in-studio appearances on several shows like get up. Sportscenter baseball tonight. There was a couple other ones mixed in there. Some some of the lower to your shows. But what do you think that this is weird? Yeah. I mean, it's clear he's going to be in medium your tires, Dr C to podcast between this. He's always been sort of a good fund percent. Yeah. So I mean, I guess you just start a little early one foot out the door, which the way he kinda put it is. You know, it's like if he's not pitching that day. You know, why not if it's an off day for him. Like, you know, who are we to decide how he spends? It rang was different to be sitting on his couch or talking about you know, basketball, or football, whatever on ESPN. So I have a problem with it random Marshall to this. I think when he was on the jets and did not go great. Well, that's Brandon Marshall is his well eighteen different personalities different. Yeah. I mean, I guess if you're giving me an option now, you know, what? I don't care. Let them go for it. I wish he just did it for like postal sports. That'd be cool. That would be great as well. Or like any? Anybody SPN? There's that factor. But I mean as far as just do I think there's going to the biggest news of the entire week. Maybe the entire history of life came Saturday night. We were just we just come back from our whole day out and sit down, and I got a text Trent who was going to blog the story, but you know, very gracefully. It's it's the it's the code of bloggers, I blog Iran, a lot normally big story for sure, but you know, he isn't really blog as much anymore. I'm sure he was doing some of the things. But Iran pop the question of jaylo it happened. I sell show for me. And then I I saw you late. I yeah. I was like forty five minutes. I guess my mouth. I saw I saw the the tweet the picture my mouth dropped. And I was just happy. I was just so happy for the amount of time. I've written a blog about them and said like either why not? Shootout me, please dot me. And then after the phone like when is he popping the question? I said it all these ward shows the forget, I don't know. What exactly was he was the Emmys Grammys, whatever Espy's was the one where he's taking the pictures for the entire time and Jalen show agree. How did the the Grammys because she wanted to work, and she was she shouted him out. And it was like everyone who's near offended a fist pump. And she's like, Alex do it. Just pop the quest. She's going to say, yes, she right with you and follow. He did that that ring that rock. Listen, I'm twenty five not in a relationship. Not even close to being married to anybody. Although pretty much integral. He'll probably say probably married Amaro. I have no idea how much I look at a ring. Like, oh, that's cool. It looks nice ring. I have no idea. I know for fact that ring was nice that ring probably costs much, I'm gonna make my whole life. That ring. I mean, again, I don't really know how bring prices work, right? I'm assuming like five hundred thousand that's seems exorbitant. Maybe like it's supposedly what three months salary, right? That's for him. That would be what does even make. I mean, if you're killing we actually go your millions making thirty million a year over six months that's fifteen. He doesn't make that anymore. Right. But I'm saying if you're going back to what he was making that would be. Fifty probably unlikely. Now I couple of hundred. I'm rod spent on spent big on a nice expensive ring. And I'm sure it didn't dent is Bank account too much. I don't think he the one who checks his chase up fifteen minutes when he buys a drink at the bar like me. But I actually I don't give a shit about celebrity relationships years, though, like other people whatever I just focused attention other things I care about that. I was like very into that. You know, like how would celebrity couples and people like loves dead. I feel Chris Pratt affairs. When they when they ended like love is dead while this show back. Lomas never been more back. I'm just love is in the air. Like stroll that I think I did like a we're out any girl. I see. I was just like, yeah. Maybe he'll propose that girl on the women like just anyone's going. Yeah. He was like sure. And the last bit of news, sunny, gray. He didn't interview in the Fleck, and I'll pull it up here. It's very interesting and. He basically trashes the Yankees, and you can take to two ways that he's right? And the Yankees, you know, treated him like shit for the most part didn't help him at all when he was struggling or that. He's just like got this built up anger from the fan. Maker right. Exactly. Like, he never. He never wants to anything in media. He was very bad with the media. I think he you know, he would laugh it off and try shoulders shit. So it's like shit he'd say this. Now, I kind of just kept my mouth shut its bad look on his birthday come out like this. But some of the things he said it's just like when he was struggling this is this is an exact, quote, maybe the four CM park situation led to the homers. But why so many walks at home he nearly doubled. His walk rate at home gray said that's the question. It was insane. It wasn't like two or three starts either pretty large sample or with that drastic of split. And they said it caused a picture to go the coaching staff questions as he said, what do you think your members asking am? I nuts. You see a difference? What's the difference? They said, no, you've just been lucky. I was like that's bullshit seems like a Larry Rotschild thing. I mean, we're about his anti lower Rothschild as any podcast out there, and that sort of confirmed everything we've said is that Larisa doesn't do. He just he's early go out there today. And if nothing changes he does not if if you do bad it has nothing to change nothing to address that's enough. It's luck of the draw so sunny, grace centigrade is an excuse maker. But at the same time now people always say don't wanna make excuses. Don't make excuses. But sometimes excuses are valid so I mean, yeah, you know, the New York media stuff like that that's sort of bullshit excuse. But yeah, if you're struggling and you're pitching staff, you're pitching coaches post to help you just got unlucky today. There's nothing really we could do about excuse. And I remember talking about this probably on the show last year when he got taken out of the rotation. He was doing well in the bullpen or whatever. And people ask them like working with you. We said, no. The pitcher not working with was concerning of some more stuff from the article won't go to through it. But. He sunny was known for his twelve six curb curb drops out of the sky. It's Tomahawk curveball. I it was awesome. And oakland. And he said that the Yankees are just very obsessive with sliders. They love sliders. She's probably Whiteley sign not amount of you know, because he's believable slaughter. But he said that they basically forced him to throw the slider. And he said when he throws slider a lot just in his history. Going back to Vanderbilt college. We throw slaughter the shape of his curveball changes. Just like, I guess mental muscle memory and all that type of shit. But he said, that's what happened my curve all just went to absolute shit. And he said is exact quotes where. I don't have that type of slider Tanaka slider. His slider. The catch will catch it in the battle. Swing and miss. If I get a swing missed the catchers blocking the dirt when I throw when I try to throw sliders for strike. I get around it. And it's just a shitty spitting pitch. I don't know. How people throw sliders for strikes that are still tight. Good pitches. I'm at two oh, and I'm throwing a slider and either throwing shitty slider in the zone. That's going to get crushed or Yankee in the dirt. And it's three I'm screed away. I think we can we know a bunch of sliders dirty would yank and it'd be like what the fuck was efforts just pitches. They'd never had a chance to be in zone or even thought about swinging to he said that he would love he's he's going. He's with his old pitching coach had Vanderbilt there about and they always in Cincinnati. And he said he's going back to throwing scribble on the con-. It's not even so, I guess we gotta see. I mean, that's way. And sees thrown his cutter a lot more one. Last part was about the Red Sox last year. His last outing second last game of the season. I threw two innings out of the pen. As did all I did was cutters. I said fuck them all gonna do. Oh cutters today and he just ninety four monarch cutters. Six up six down four punch outs. And I thought maybe I'll make the postseason roster here. But I didn't seem. I think we know why the posters roster, but very interesting winnings was not going to change that. Yeah. So take it. You know, I think it's probably both ends how Sonny was definitely frustrating. This kind of a bitch move him. But at the same time like this probably a lot of truth to the lia- Rotschild thing. And how the sliders that everything we're going to get into now, our first interview, we did a bunch of stuff we're gonna get into after this interview of how we broke down. I guess we should say. Now, we are joining the barstools boots that were as buckets, very cool. We weren't on the we were just kinda on ourselves to build this up. We think we've done enough. We've got the green light green light. So we are officially a partial pockets as of March eighteenth our first show. I mean, I guess from today. I mean, I guess technically we're already kind of barstool fuck as speaking like nothing's really gonna change drastically. But yeah, we're here. We're here to stay. We're hopefully going to build this thing up section ten is a great Red Sox podcast for borstal sports. And we cut kind of trying trying to bring the same type of thing. Just for the Yankees that's deserving. A lot of people want that you know, less. Boston stuff. You know, we're Boston site by nature. So we're gonna try your best to do that. So last year, really, you know, started, you know, it was a heated rivalry between the red sock fans in the office with the playoff series and all that. And we're going to try to build off that will of other Yankee fans from the office on every now and Willie mardi mush, Frankie, Frankie for sure. Maybe we'll maybe Liz if she wants to on a crazy rent? We'll we'll build it up up New York. I Boston and starting with some some player interviews to. Yeah. We did a lot of great shit down here. I think we really like I was a little worried of what it was going to be like, and what what we're gonna get because he just never really know. But it really worked out couldn't have worked better. I think given our first time. Yeah. But like giving our where we all right now. This is great. I love you is Michael king. He's a top ten prospect in the system, if you don't know him, you should he was acquired in the kale. Smith Garrett Cooper trade from the Marlins. He is awesome. If you like baseball baseball porn. He breaks it down. Like he is. Honestly, we were just sitting there. And it was just a joy to hear him talk about the game baseball how to pitch and all that stuff. It's not and this isn't a nocco, Mike. Okay. And he knows it's not like the sexiest name to, you know, have on an interview because not in the majors yet. But he is really good. I mean unbelievable minor league season last year. And the interview itself is awesome. It's good as you're going to get with really any major league players and said the way you said the way he broke it down to really chill guy. Stolley awesome. Yep. So with our do, let's do Michaelson. All right here with Michael king top ten Yankees prospect. How you doing good? How are you? Good. I've been happy here. Little little rushing this. He came over a little short notice. But it it's all good for poolside. It's nice. A little worried about me getting a sunburn in the sun frying the equipment. But hopefully, it'll tan up real nice women to pretty doesn't fry. So I will how're you doing? I mean, you had the scary stress reaction in your elbow little few weeks ago, your shutdown people were freaking out. I think I actually hit you up. And I was like, oh, you good. Good them like this. But yes, how's everything going? It's good. I actually had a similar injury my freshman year college, and I was at three month shutdown. So that's how I was kind of afraid of. But they said it wasn't nearly as bad as I went to the doctor when I was a freshman as well. So he saw my elbow then. And so they said we're gonna take a month get another MRI reevaluate and that was on Wednesday. And they cleared me on Thursday. And I've been thrown for the last two days and everything's feeling good. So nowhere is we're kind of breaking news. Yeah. So when do you think you'll be back into, you know, full form or you there? No. So yeah, it'll be a decently slow progression. I'm trying to get them to move fast possible. See I wanna be out there. But I think right now they have me back live in a game on April eighteenth. But that's just one inning. And then I'll have to build up from there. But that'll be whatever. Four more starts from there to go one inning two three inning until I'll be able to get a five inning start. I mean, your your one of your top ten prospect in the system, and it's crazy because couple years ago. I mean, even to the point when we when you were in the Gary Cooper trade Kayla. Smith like not to insult your anything. But you are bit of throwing I guess like and been Cashman, his kind of emitted how like this. This just happens in trades were guys just fucking boom out of nowhere. And that's I mean, you I mean that's to your work. You probably the best Miley season of any minor league pitcher out there last year. Thank you. But yeah, I mean, I guess I kind of use it a little bit of motivation. Just because like I like. That the entire STAN. And in every article about the trade who was just like Yankees going after Otani their cleanup, forty manned space. And no one really said anything about me. So I mean, it's not like anything big. But I still wanna be noticed a little bit. You know? So it was it was definitely on the in the back of my mind. But I mean, the like I love the Marlins I love all the guys I met there. I love coaches over there. But I definitely had a little bit more freedom, and there's a little bit more knowledge with coaches in the in the leagues with the Yankees here. So that made me definitely develop a little bit faster even than I thought it was going to. Yeah. So I had the goals of like just getting the AA last year being a high star getting a AA and then going from there, but I change those a little bit just because I got fasttrack a little bit. What were the biggest adjustments? You made when you came over the keys that enabled this breakout. So I mean, my fastball command really increased step across my body with two or so it's really tough for me to get side. That's like in on lefties away. To righties and the Marlins had move all the way over to third base out of the rubber. So now, I was even further over there, and it was really tough for me to get to that side of the plate. So I was really pitching with only half the plate. And then the Yankee said not just do whatever's comfortable go back over there. All back to the first bayside and just felt like I had better command my fastball my Slatter side develop a little bit. And that was just me throwing it more and more. And then I'm just like a preparation type pitch. I love to watch video guys love to see sequences. I that's like that's like my crack Phil guy analytics with that. Yeah. Especially as I started moving up in levels. They had more access to that stuff. Definitely. Also, just the difference between the Marlins and the Anki the Yankees had that kind of stuff where when I I mean, I was only low with the Marlins, but in low aid, the only video I could see was when I was facing that team a month ago, or whatever it was. So I didn't see any video of of new guys that were coming in. Whether it was a guy that just got sent down or called up or traded, whatever I didn't get anything. And then I just had to kind of go after However, I would. Yeah. And then and then it just throughout the game. So definitely let me have a plan as I was going in to those games. And that's like what added to my success. Interesting. It's almost like the opposite of with sunny greatest, bashed the whole Yankee. Let article it's like it's almost like he he seemed like none of that was happening. And now we have proof that. Yes, it does. We care immensely about guys. I read that you have a new cutter that help help at the arsenal. Was that all with the Yankees to? They were just like it was kind of kind of a mix of both. I was flirting with it a little bit because I usually throw to change up and move the same direction. And I always struggled lefties, and it kinda like that too. Seems are two seem movement goes right into a bad path of a lefty. Right. And they can just drive to less than a gap. And I started getting trouble. If I would miss at all with that. We're if I missed with a with a righty up there. I knew I could get it under a barrel or on their fists or something have we contact. So I wanted something that was hard and going the other way originally it was a four seamer. But then I realized my four seamer still had some run it just didn't have the sink like my my two seamer. Did so I tried really getting on the side of it and rip in it. And in bullpens all throughout AA. I was throwing it. And then once I got AAA the opposite hitters are a little bit better. And I felt like I needed to do something and. I face Lehigh valley. And they had like seven left these in their lineup. And a lot of them were the big power left. He's really drive a Mets as up, and I threw it probably five or six times that day and a lot of it was just backed Orna where I throw it off the two seem throwing it where it runs away and that have left you kind of see that and then lay off it. And then I throw it starts on that same plane, but comes back and catches the outside corner. And I think through four or five home it had like three or four. Look looking punch outs. Just because that was just because it was a new pitch. So my thing is I don't want to get into the habit of throwing more cutters and be a cutter guy. I wanted to be where I can almost like shock somebody. I love how much of a student the game. You are. This is like a clinic say, you you have obviously great stuff. We also talked about wanting to watch the film. Yogi Berra has the famous quote. Baseball's ninety percent mental. The physical math is just incorrect. How would you break it down? How much do you think is physical mental on your end? I it's totally dependent on the player. There are a lot of guys that are out there that say like, I just can't think when I'm out there. I I don't I don't wanna be thinking. I just wanna attack hitters even like like, I read Chris sale at the Red Sox will not shake off the catcher, and it just because it puts doubt in both their minds at the call and the wrong the wrong pitch. But for me, I wanna be I wanna be throwing the piss I want to throw for sure the most confidence in. So for me. I like as much it. It's probably for me. It's ninety ten mental physical just because when I'm on the mound. I wanna know my plan of attack. I wanna know everything about that hitter. I want a study everything from when he first broken in a pros. And I got notes on guys faced when I was in the ACC that's still are playing in the pros. And it's just I wanna see their their progression. To then know where I can exploit them where they haven't changed anything. And then just. Their overall approach of the game. And I when I go watch game like I was sitting there watching judge yesterday. And I'm trying to like see what I would do to him. And it's just like little things that I play mind games with myself to like put me in that in that situation and see like all right based on his body language. It looks like he's taking first pitcher here. And then you see him. He takes first pitch. You like, okay. I'm trying to get these little cues a lot of it. I I know it's the Yankees here. I was watching like Pedro and Jason Verita short. And that was like he had so much faith in Varitek because Varitek was studying that hitter. And like how hard it was gripping the bat as he got into the box. No one he's going to be aggressive. And so as much as I can't really see that those are the kind of things I'd like to see it's really interesting. How you said that the the shaking offing how sales though, we just interviewed adamant, you know, and he was like I wanna call my pitches, I'll shake off until they kill. They make me step off the mound. It's like everyone's different like that. But I mean, I pitched like in high school and stuff. I I needed to shake off like when you're you wanna throw. Yes. High school fishing and in triple eight hundred percent the same thing. But. People rave about your control your walk rate last year was ridiculous. A four point four walk. I mean, that's preposterous. But the the haters will say that like, you know, the the people criticize you a little bit. We'll say that you out pitch. What's your response to that? I totally agree. I that's something. I need to develop. I think that a rotation has to have a lot of different pitchers. You can't have Severino's all five of them be ninety eight plus on top of his slider. You have to have a J hap- coming in there at ninety ninety three with sink in can can command. And then Tanaka comes in there with whatever eight different pitches. So it just keeps a lineup off balance throughout the whole rotation. So I just wanna say to my identity of getting quick outside almost sinker baller. So I'm not really trying to get swing and misses I'm trying to get quick ground. Ball outs, we contact. But I'm my sliders. Never been great. I definitely had great strides with it this year. She talked to add out of you know, about that. That's one. Yeah. He he went to northeastern. I talked a little bit. When we first got here. I I so I went to college we had a BC alumni weekend. It was right after he got signed and one of my buddies who's who played at BC when venos- at northeastern said, yes. From ABC boys didn't think anything else I played in northeastern. He might know some of them. And I guess he was dating a girl at BC. So he was there like all the time and hung out with all the BC. Boy. So I was trying to get into it. Because he's big that like analytic stuff of the slow MO cameras and all the like tunneling of pitches. So that's something. I definitely want to get into. I'm I've been messing around with little grip changes. And since I've been shut down. I just like holding the ball just like feel it. But I'm gonna see if a new grip I have has made it a little bit more. I just needed sharper because it's anywhere from like eighty to eighty six and throw in nineteen ninety six I want that to be higher up that wanted to be like eighty five eighty seven eighty eight in their sharpen and with quick by. But then again, I'm not gonna change my. Punchout pitcher. So I really don't care about having that knockout secondary as long as I'm still getting out early in the count. I take it. You're someone who'd rather have the Greg Matic's eighty five pitch gem or you out thunk everyone. Then like, you know, fifteen strikeouts. Overpower and people right. Yeah. It's definitely cool on a statute to see like ten punchout game. But those come few and far between. But yeah, I mean, I I wanna be the guy that just eats up innings. We were just talking about it with J P firehouses news in AAA with me and bullpen hates it. When like you get in trouble in the first inning. And now all of a sudden bullpens got back in the first. And now it's a bullpen game from the first to the ninth inning. And so my my role is just to get to that fifth sixth seventh inning. And especially in today's day and age where you got four bullpen guys that are hundred plus coming in there that can just close the door. It's valuable to save those arms and give a guy seven eight innings bullpen, seven eight innings. So they only have to cover that one or two such kind of pride myself off of and I think it's it it could be. Able in any rotation. Just because it saves marv's. Definitely you see you're from New York originally. I was born there. Right. You didn't grow up there. We moved on six months old, but my whole moms out of families from upstate New York. So I was born in Rochester. And then we moved to Minnesota for four years and then came into Rhode Island. Gotcha. That's that's on me. But I was gonna ask if you if you were a Yankee fan like your your life growing up say was. Now, this is actually a funny story. I I really don't really want this to be out there. But whatever so my dad's from Boston. I'm offering New York whole data families, Boston everything patriots. Celtics. Bruins Red Sox. Any raised me to be a Boston fan? Two hasn't three. I was. Seven when boon hit the walk off. Right. And my dad had tickets to like game three your game for whatever it was at Fenway. And he was a news anchor at the time. It was a Sunday night game. We go to the game. We're on the T gets rained out. Reschedule the Tuesday. He's gotta work the six o'clock in eleven o'clock news. So he can't go anymore. My mom like it's ails ES Red Sox Yankees. You gotta go and my mom's like just sell a ticket Celtics get so much money for it. She's he's like, no, you take them. It'll be a great experience, whatever. So I go as a Red Sox Yankees win my mom's pumped she's the biggest baseball fan I've ever met like knows everybody stands huge Mary honor of air fan. He closes it out. They win the game. My dad gave me twenty dollar Bill to get a souvenir, and I come home with the Yankee hat God and seven whatever just stand wagon fan. And then seeing my mom all happy. It just made me Yankee fan. And then when I came home, I turn around the corner, and I got a Yankee hat on. And that's my dad laying on the couch, and he's just like stabbing himself with an imaginary knife and. And he's because he was so pissed at me. Maybe wanna be more of a Yankee love that. And I was just like I now once I got like older and everything especially living in in Rhode Island. We only get Boston coverage. So like, I'm not like I'm not diehard Yankee. I hate the Red Sox. But I mean now that I'm a Yankee. It's getting the moment. You get traded to the Yankees. What is that life? All that was that was we I was actually lifting when it happened. And I got a call from the Yankees area scout, and he's been a good friend of mine. Matt hides his name really good, dude. I thought I was checking in on how my off-season was going that kind of thing. So I let go to voicemail com back after after my lift I'd give a lesson to a kid right after that. And he calls back, and I'm like something's going on. But like still I'm letting go to voicemail, and then I got a call from Jupiter area code, which is the Marlins spring training. And I'm like all right something's up. I gotta answer this call, and I just like jokingly said one of my buddies. I was at facility I was at like, I just got trader go into the office. I close the door. And there was another guy in there. And I said. Hey, don't let anybody in just cases important conversation answer. And it was when like jeeter just came in cleaned house. So the guy I didn't even know who was answered was a interim director player development until they find somebody. And he said, yeah. Like good news for the Yankees, bad news for us. We just traded you to them. And I was like, wait. What like what? And he is like, Yep. We have to be the first ones to tell you. And then you should get a phone call from the Yankee soon, and so I'm just sitting there like after I'm lifting, and I got this kid that said give me a second. I'm giving them a lesson. Just like that. I'm not giving. I figure this out. So I remember coming home. I was calling my mom all this stuff. And I thought it was really cool. Just because it's like a minor leaguers dream to get traded. It sounds weird. Is it? It sounds really weird. But like when when I was with the Marlins, it's like when we're in stretch lines and everything it's like, yeah. Get you traded deadline like maybe trade, and it just like put you on a map with the other team. You know that they like you because obviously they wouldn't ask for your name. And I was like all throughout the two thousand seventeen season one last year with the Marlins I was kind of like getting weird vibes. Like, I was part of trade deals are pitching coordinator came in. And he said something to me like you're in one of the trade offers. But we just climbed it and like casualty walk by me. And I'm like all right, whatever drought that and then obviously happens, and I didn't know anybody with the Marlins. So I didn't even know who to call like thanks for what thanks for. I don't know centimeter a better organization. But I mean, it was it was exciting time for me in my entire moms out of family. Going nuts. Just what what do you think seven year old? You would have said if you were told that Derek Jeter is going to trade you first baseball executive to the Yankee God, I have no idea. I got the first text, I got was actually from aircraft. See my strength strength to the season. And he goes what did you do to piss off? And so I love the guy. He was one of my he'd never met him never met. But I mean, I can't think of enough now thinking damn she hates me. But I mean after that I was like all right. He brought me to better organization we were just too 'cause like stay in the big big deal from the Marlins to the Yankees. And we're talking to somehow we were talking about that trade, and how jeeter got ridiculed for cleaning house with whatever ozone yelich, Gordon, all them real mute now. And I was like you guys are missing the point. They they got rid of their best attribute they're like Stanton. And I was like I was Marley jokin brand this podcast is interview with an early player. Derek Jeter traded from the Marlins kiss. I another one. I hope I'm not listen. But I was out at a bar probably like a a week after I got with a bunch of my boys. And so because it was week after there was like all these articles that were like my name would pop up. Yes, it was highlighting Otani and all them, but my name would still pop up on Google image. If air, Google, search and. It was like staying just comes over. And it was literally a week after I got trained get traded. And a lot of the girls are like so you got traded for Stanton like not really knowing. And I'm like, no, no, no. I was boys with staying on the Marlins traded over. And he just couldn't be without me. Wait, you actually know Giancarlo Stanton. All my a hookup your. Little STAN has no idea who I am. But right now. Like. See you're starting pitcher by trade. I have a feeling when you do get the call. You know, they do have know fully starting rotation. You're gonna be reliever thoughts on that, you know, different mindset. And all that you okay with it. I'm sure you're okay with it. They say you're gonna be hitching stadium reliever. But yeah, I actually disagree with you a little bit on that. Oh, that's oh. I like that. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, well like, I totally be reliever. But I think we had like ten starters last year throughout just like J have Catan foot mouth. Do you need very firm? So me communicate with front office that kind of stuff I feel like that'll be more my role this year as a sixth seventh starter type deal like better Louis Sessa lost. He's he's one of the best either, absolutely hilarious. But but he so he he's one of them like low icy good her mind for sure I was talking about agent about like those guys are all forty man guys. So if a guy goes down for start it's an easier paper move to just send a forty man guy over then it would be for me. We said don't expect that. But if something like hopefully doesn't happen drafting goes down for an extended period of time and you've proven yourself. Then. That's when you prob I love that mentality. I'm having disagreement there. That's that's like, that's that's a killer like professional mentality. You were talking about life in the minor leagues. Little before a lot of people say that, you know, the best part about reaching a goal is like the journey along the way or you enjoying the journey of being in the minor leagues. Or you just you ready for the bright lights? Yes. And no it's fun to have these stories to tell about like making no money and being on a bus for eleven hours. And all the all the guys you come across. But it's not fun. It's not easy. And that's why you got so many. There's so many of my good friends that retired even though they were young in and actually had a promising future. But it's just a grind. And fortunately, I love it. Unfortunately, a lot of guys that are in this organization love it. But I mean. I've always been known to be like results oriented, which actually isn't great, and you wanna be process oriented in wanna love that grind to then get there. But for me like I want to do is win. Like, I don't care if I give up ten runs as long as we put up eleven then like, I'm fine with it. And. The I when I was getting scouted in college and high school and everything I was just so into winning that it almost skewed my my numbers of my mentality, but say one seven nine area through every high level system. The miners you figured that that helps that helps. But I mean, like, you you just gotta do it. It's like you can't. I'll less you're one of those like really high high round picks that can skip levels and stuff and throws hundred in his own time. You gotta just get get through all of it. And it definitely bills you as a person, and then kind kinda prepares you for for what you're you're about to see at the big league level because I mean, I mean you've done it to guys like New York media is tough or not shall I try not to turning new leaf. Oh, yeah. He's pretty self. I guess. Like one player we want to win the business. It's it's tough. And so you got you gotta like gotta be thick skin. And you gotta you gotta be able to take the heat and as long as as long as they're parents Ford a little bit it makes it a little bit of an easier transition. So for sure you mentioned the bus rides. How do you pass that time of those those long ones? I mean got TV shows the watch, you know, what do you like I try to sleep a lot of us play cards. Sometimes it Gaza bring like four night on the bus, and you like connect your four point nine guy. Everybody wants no big deal wants whatever thirty times, percentage wise, I say percentage wise, I'm better than injure like I likely Senate wise win more than injured us. What's one for thirty three percent three percent? And my average finish hide in bushes. The whole time like I said before kind of a pussy, it's kind of like a survival strategy where I always come top ten sometimes top tube. And then just me and the other guy I can't shoot guy killing is. Now, not my thing. I just like lasting long coming top five. But to me like so my average finish is higher than injure. Probably. Gotcha. No big deal. You're like Matt Damon and saving private Ryan. You just sit on side and cry. No, you guys got this one. I'm gonna sit out this how clean up the scrabble. Not a big guy. I played once I finished fifth, and I retired any kills. Yeah. Killed. I remember killing two guys. And it was like a big deal. That's I wasn't sober. Who saw? No. I'm more of a up to Kane stuff like that that got as we wrap up. So the minor leagues you got a an even down spring training. You got to see like a bunch of former Yankees legends. And all that, I know Nick Swisher has a big impact. I see your face right now. I mean, he's he's a nutjob. We're going to have him on soon. Hopefully, just talk about like those guys in Iraq. Who has the biggest impact? So I had no idea. That's wish was even like retired. I felt like he was still playing get called to AA and I walk into the locker room, and we have a bad boy Tommy down singer kid. Cutest kid in the world love him. And he's got Swisher in a headlock on the ground as he's like playing WWE music just going nuts. And I'm like what the hell's going on? And like Switzer's w like I had no idea who's on his team. He's like his special assistant. Steinbrenner. But I'm telling you the man stories are unbelievable. You gotta get 'em on here. But he's just like he's an absolute nut. It's like he's on something at all times. And it's just like his blood now. That's just what he is. And I don't know kid hits a home run. And each is going nuts in the dugout like we're up. We're up six runs over the solo shot. He's going nuts. We I remember having lunch and he's telling stories about like, I'm telling you once you get them going good. I don't even want to spoil it because I can't I can't do we've been in contact with him. I think he's gonna come on. Oh my God. I mean, he's got stories about like JR Smith and his prime. What should we ask him about where we gotta get? No. You gotta JR Smith story that was it was right win. God who's a kid guy ball dude beard played on the Knicks like tours ACL coming down for a rebound along time ago. Not like a long time ten years ago channel now point guard. Aired Barron Davis Davis. Yeah. That Barron day their news. He like had a I don't know tore like everything is neat. Yeah. One day. And it was Swisher is good good friends with him. And he goes over you got on telling goes over to his house, and like the characters that David surrounded himself with and then JR Smith comes in. And it was I'm telling you, it's one of the best stories. You'll have you got assets. Amazing. Tommy have anything else there? What's? Yeah. Just one last thing. What is something about you that surprise people to now if you have anything top your head if people hear this? I wouldn't have expected that about Mike, okay? Spot. Good things. We'll say I mean, like it's not like that bad love cooking. I don't know if that's like some weird. Seamless? I don't know if it stayed in money on my minor league salary here. But I cook all the time for myself my grandma's like the best cook in the world. So she teaches me every now and then. Some weird. I don't know. I feel like I'm kind of kind of a normal, dude. This is like probably bad. I'm one of the fakest people in the world, if I hate you you never going to know like I'll I'll be nice in the world got a really good debt. Like right before this. I was like. Well, I wouldn't know though. Yeah. No. Like, I just I don't wanna like make enemies. I guess it's more being polite than anything. But like, I don't know if I like you. I'm more joking around with him not being nice to you that that's really guys in the minor leagues for listening to this. And be like this. Survivor that I think probably kill that show. You watch I into more into the bachelor. I know that sounds terrible juicy that fence Trump. I mean, one not eight feet high. I know it was like I in my head hand Shaw saying it's more like seven. Yeah. Yeah. 'cause he's not eight foot eighty but still I mean, just the just a prime show. And that's another thing survival of the fittest type thing. And as you do what you can to stay keep getting those roses. That's I do I make my friends. I would make my enemies. But I I'd get that final rose Michael can get to the mind pads it after the bat. On survivor. Do you? So last question to you, would you say you're going to be in Yankee Stadium pitching the? I mean, it's obviously the goal you gotta be coughing yourself. You're going to be there. You're going to be there. Yeah. Thank you. But yeah, I. I. It's just kind of a matter of one little setback, obviously with with this injury and spring training. But my original goal is be like early may they're playing the Mariners my boys. Justin dunno if you know him. Mets traded to the Mariners. They play the Mariners wants this year, and it's may tenth or something like that. So I wanted to be then, but I don't think it'll happen then now we're pushing for June June, June, July where I'm really trying to get their feeling refacing done quite a bit the rest of your career. So you'll have some ups. Don't we had a great plan? Sorry for going over land. Because he was my roommate in college like absolute boys, I live with them every offseason we work out Christian Jupiter every off season, and we hadn't planned where we're both going to be in New York. He's obviously for the Mets Yankees were gonna live in the same apartment as cool story like college roommates, then become roommates while they're in pro ball, and we were pissed when that first came out when the rumors were coming out, I was like pleased not go even though he's got an unbelievable paternity there going to be almost fasttrack because Mets have a great rotation. I don't know how long they're going to be able to keep all those guys. But. Mariners don't. And so they're building Sheffield's coming over there. Chef wanna going over? There are big. And I know Donny said he was gonna start in AA. But if Swann your chef breaks or gets up there quick he's going to be the next one that goes triple so he's like hoping that they that they really succeed southern I hope to hope to see you in the Bronx year, if you need a roommate I plan on moving in September. So that would be cool. It's done is out of the picture. It'd be great. But I pre she's so much for coming coming on and the whole short-notice thing. But I wish you all the luck in the world. We're all rooting for you. Thank you. I appreciate it. All right king. Everybody. And thanks again. The Michael king for coming on. It was kind of like an on the we we had some interviews lined up. And then and they were pushed back a little bits. We will squeeze Mun earlier than initial worked out full-size better. So we came earlier, and we kinda were just shooting the shit with him that whole time. Like, we didn't have a lot completely prepared as much as we did the other interviews terms of structure and all that. And it was great or sometimes like honestly is and Michael he's a just a bro big stolley went to BC. So it was it was very cool to have him on hope to see your best luck everything. And I guess we're breaking news with that that he's good to go helpless, which is great. So that's big throwing again Amara seems to come out. Good. And I mean, he is we're talking about Donna's Anya deeming Armand and whoever in the beginning of the show, Michael king. If he was healthy, I think he'd really be in the mix to start the season. And I think I think Michael king will make a start in. As the I really like how disag- he's like, I'm gonna disagree with you. And he he was when I disagree with two. I think his stuff plays better for being snow for sure I just didn't think there was going to be a spot. But then he broke he's like those injuries happening. Right. Completely. Right. I think for sure he suffered disorder and. Yes. So I really hope we get to see him in New York this year. I think we will especially at the at the minimum September, call and stuff. But I think before that you should you will see assuming, you know, health and everything he's good to go. And you know, he continues the same stuff. So we should nothing. Best hope to have him on again after cracks the roster and everything she'll have some funny stories. But yeah, Michael king was awesome. So it's getting the trip. We get down. Here had a few things lined up. Some things didn't work out terms of the universe. Do. But overall, the production guy unbelievable to break. It all down Tyler Wade. We got weighed in a barbershop you're gonna listen to that one in a probably done a few shows. Out of at out of Iino was incredible to see him today. You were downstairs passed out basically so hot. We're gonna go chronological order, but I got to see out of you know, today and his stuff we were sitting a couple rows behind on plate and his stuff in that angle is unbelievable. It's truly Ramar. And I was tweeting. Oh, it's spring training. Dude doesn't fucking matter at the scene. His his his whippable stuff in person is great. He's and we kind of touched on this in the interview with him. But he might be even better because he's out of Colorado. And he preview it a little bit. He was talking about how being in the air. They're takes away from his slaughter a little bit. And now he may never give up even contact. They weren't coming close to him today close. There's this great to see. So out of you know, we actually did poolside was kind of funny, and we were praying. Yeah. We didn't. We don't have an RV down. Here. We were kind of just doing everything at the hotel aside from one special guest and remember to go. We I went to go get out of it. He was in the lobby and you're saying by the pool, and it was quiet in the moment came back. The started started gusting little of the women's find Audio's. Great and kids started coming the pool. And I was like e text me like, you got fucking kidding me. The last thing these annoying little kids being jumper the pools. I thought it was gonna come back to like a nine on nine volleyball. Yeah. Somebody that. Luckily, pretty much all worked. Yeah. It was great. So that was a great interview. Then next was sterling, right? John fucking sterling will can't yet king between king between that. Right. And we were able to get hold of John sterling somehow pretty sure he only has a flip phone, and we really get a hold of him. And he was nothing like nothing short of unbelievable. He is what you'd expect? I mean, he he walks in. We tweet out the picture whatever type of shirt, he was wearing was was electric and have a when I walked into the lobby. Yeah. He said I knew you guys would be early. Yep. I knew it. He was talking to sell. He. Yeah. Came back down. And we're really looking for twenty minutes ended up going forty minutes. And then at the end of it. He gave us a very nice compliment. We ended up basically like boys now, John sterling, he was really impressed. It was I mean. You can't top that. It was the best moment of my life. It was I I'd met I've loved on forever. I met him as a fan twenty thirteen interviewed him with Fordham two years ago in the press box. Don't think your member me at all. But now getting getting to be as a fan at WF UV and now with Barcelona. It's awesome. He was incredible. So that will be our March eighteenth interview, it's forty minutes long. It is hid has I-. There's nothing we didn't talk about currency Yankees talked about his whole his whole life and everything history his stories. He's he is fantastic. Is a funny Joe bookstore in there. So that was unbelievable. I kind of like when he walked away took the picture. I did like a Tommy Canley fist-bump after I was so pumped up and then after him. That was with it was that is that. Trying to think my head. No last interview we did. We had some discussions with other players today. Didn't end up. Well, yeah, we should have a few phone interviews. Very very soon with some bigger bigger names. We hope people are giving Luke for shit because he did the starting nine podcast, which rightfully we're corrobos. Yeah. Yeah. For sure. I think he does that. But he will we hope to have him on the phone. He had family down, the whatever things I don't really blame it, but we will have him on soon. Hopefully and. I was just it was a great great weekend. Trying to re embarrassed myself all we can with taps just attempting to death. I'm pretty good at it mean. Wade was very smooth. That's so we we interviewed weighed in a barbershop. Yep. So the way very cool thing the do that at amount of you know, was telling us about was when they don't aren't scheduled to play or they're done playing for the game. They can just leave. Then they there that's different with a lot of teams in baseball. But it's very cool Yankees do that they let their guys have have the rest of the night off. And because they realize it's a grind all year hundred sixty two games. So you're down in Florida. You can do whatever you you your job. You get your stuff sitting the dugout watch a game. If you're not playing so I think that's very cool. So we were at the we went to the Friday night with pretty seats. We've got a great view of Stanton's homerun, which still might be going. Pretty sure he was still out in front of the pitch. And he's still hit it like over the score monster ridiculous this year market down. I'll take it. So we left early from the game. We we met up a weight his barbershop to kill two birds one stone. How just a very interesting situation. But your dad was horrible. You went to shook his hand, I'm old school. I like to shake someone's hand when I meet them. I think that's because there's so many different ways. It could go you go in for a hug half with a hand on the back. Do you just let it go? Like, how do you release? There's so many different are overthinking Yam thinking it's tough to so many different ways to go. And I just never know which one to do. So why am I so smooth? I'm awkward person. I figured it out. My that was like my number one full-time with weighed like I was so it was like. Hundred zero but the end of the weekend. I was addressing it as I was dancing people up. Look, I'm bad at this. Like down here. Let's not this is gonna be weird. Yes. I was recurring theme all weekend. You had a really weird and count. We were in Tampa Bay for five minutes. We're waiting for a bags at baggage claim in the airport, and what happens so we're standing away for bags and this girl like turns me, oh my God L. Hey, what's up? Jeez. I o or whatever boyfriend brother like our big fans. Thanks that was like pretty quick interaction. And then I go on Twitter that night. I get an at from caller daddy. And it just goes we have is everywhere. Tomsk belly knock it off with the khakis. And it's a screen shot of DM that this girl sent them saying just running to the airport in Tampa news in colored khakis just thought you should be made aware for anyone that doesn't l I wore khakis, I used to work having people are khakis. I I'd work khakis and call her daddy. That's one of their big things that your guy you can't wear khakis and one day they're on radio, and I was in the radio room doing social and they were trashing khakis. While I was in the corner. Trying to cover up the khakis. I did have on awkward. I flipped the curb music under it really haven't weren't khaki since the pants. I had on Thursday. I maintained we're not really caq. I mean, I guess I mean they were like three khaki when people talk pants the color. I mean, the they were I think that's I don't know. They were blue I guess khaki, chino material, whatever you wanna call it. But they weren't like Jake from show. They weren't Jake from state farm khakis. Okay. I'll give you that. Yeah. Like, the beige or whatever. That's yeah. Okay. I thought they were I I'm pretty sure I've even worn them in front of Colorado before and they said met, which take care about your khaki colored. Daddy is the scares people in the world. Daddy, gang is. It's the most intimidating group in the world. Why haven't we unleashed on ISIS? They could take on ISIS, forty hours. They could just end they could end every war the daddy gang attacks you over there. And they're everywhere we found that actually the minor leaguers love colored, by the way, people are saying that minor league. Baseball, everyone listens to call it that which is this week and the interests of people that call I know call her daddy everywhere. They're everywhere. God, dammit. They're scary. What else was there? Trying to think anything crazier have what you'll see got it. We're all fried where we're today. We were just I mean we were sitting in the heat today. And you know, me, and my we met up with Marty Moshi was here. Visit oh my. So we SC me mardi. We're gonna take the we we went into dugout club that we were in. It's a nice actually, see. But there are no seats in the dugout club. So it was like either get to sit down and rest your feet in the heat outside. Or do you go inside and get a C ultimately, mardi weren't just sitting on the floor. I mean, we felt like legit. I tweeted the pictures hilarious. You guys look children. Oh, and I mean, we had the crazy experience. Well, one of the weird experiences of our life. Oh my God. Okay with so before that we have to with the talk about the minor league show. So we got an invite comes the minor league complex couple blocks away more than a couple of blocks and all the guys down there. Big Shalit's, whatever Billie Fleming. Michael king were down there punch, weather guys. And they gave us a nice tour clubhouse manager, Michael was great shove the him. He did and the fucking which is where we're going to talk about now. But he gave us a nice nice little tour. And we have some some merch whatever, which was cool. We gave them some merchants. Nice little trade off and we're leaving. And we're leaving the complex to go to the game. And we have about an hour and twenty minutes. We were good on time. We're like, oh, he's a very close on the map. We didn't look, and we're like we walk Uber. And he goes, I don't know just walks a five minute walk. Okay. Cuco wish we got gifts directions or walking. Five minutes is this inception time or something because it was a half hour walk. I almost died so hot it was the hottest on, Hugh. Really, no reason. Yeah. So Saudi it was really I thought we we we got to the stairs. Huge flight of stairs. And me you and mushroom looked at each other. Or like this. This is at Boyce. This is not going to happen. So Michael, really? And the craziest part is he's never done the walk before he told you after your head. I was more than a five minute walk. I was like dude you really screwed us. I said a. Let's see I said laughably, not a five minute walk. He goes all shit, you straight? I never personally. Did it my bed? Cool. Look, I'm the biggest Uber guide. Not walk. No matter. How close always take an Uber. No shame. I regret this decision. I should've stayed true to my philosophy. Uber. Wherever you got to say, the course so, but we had this. We have you know, each of us had a bag of some merch. And we you know, you guys about this. Yes. So we get what I forgot why we're interviewing it. So we get to the the nice little lounge they got under home plate, and we have a few drinks. And we're getting some food. We put our bags below. No chairs being this place byways. Crazy. It's all standing maybe. We were just the biggest complainers. Can we just did a thirty minute walk the because of Michael complained about a Friday night to? Okay, I always complain. I wish my our next trip. Together. I'm missing have a no pet of complaints from you because it is crazy. I'm a complainer. And so we have our bags of merge. Below vs tables. That were standing we were standing leaning on. And some fella to starts rummaging through Tommy's back. Yeah. So we had the bag on the floor. And you know, we're at this high table he comes over he's bending down. Crawling like looking at the bags, and it was so stunning that. I almost thought we were in the wrong. It was crazy the way he was going through it. I was like, oh, you just can go through people fabric that the confidence. He did it with. Maybe I've been wrong my entire life. Just how society works. You're actually able to go to some strangers bag and rummaged through their bags because the confidence he did it with was jarring. And is also thinking all right. Maybe they were here before he left the bag real left something under the table. I kinda tapped, hey, also, like not not like the bags off to the side. They were. Really touch. You're touching very clearly our bags. I it was it was the most shocking moment in my entire life. And I was hey. But again, I was so shocked. It was a mixture of art, maybe he left a Bagri forgot his phone or something underneath. And then it was also just maybe you're just allowed to do this. Maybe you just can go free in the dugout was so drop a, sir, sir. Yeah. I Louis cert- him like, sir. What are you doing? And he's like, oh, these these your bags? Yeah. No shit and his son or whatever it is. I all sorry misunderstand misunderstanding. What kind of misunderstandings out? You're an idiot. You're an idiot. If you can either innate or just. No misunderstanding. I mean that was either you're the rudest person the world that you're just gonna steal veasley intimidate us into steel or you're just so goddamn stupid that you should. Yeah. This is. Okay. This is. Oh, yeah. They they they give out free Mercier in people's bags under their feet. Old. You can just do it. I think this was all they knew they could send over the the, you know, the old guy. And we'd this is the reason that thirty forty year old whatever didn't do it. Oh, you think they sent him over as like something? If we could just do this. We can do when you're old you shouldn't be allowed to make decisions when you're old like any decisions. Like, oh, should I go over there? You shouldn't be allowed to do that you should consult like five people when you're above the age of sixty to do anything. That's why I think I'm just if I ever get to that point just put a bolt in my head. I'm going to ninety three Ivo said that ninety three. Yeah. That seems way too long way toiling do anything. But other than that. So that we were sitting the seats nice seats, and you just wouldn't you couldn't do it? He got to your base heatstroke, you'll acid to mardi. It wasn't just me. I was. Yeah. Maybe it was it was a little harder thing of me. But I just really wanted to watch some baseball. We didn't really get to watch much on Friday. So we watch is able to see out of you know, strike out the side and all that clink on RBI single that was cool. But. You were just an absolute pussy and every since nobody's ever accused me of not being a policy. So you look like you. I mean, we were not we were out the night before doing all celebrating of nice weekend. We had and we were all kind of I wasn't hung over. But like we were all like little tired. Ain't they're probably oh people are looking at L rough night last night. Oh, yeah. Like, you know, like party like, no, I'm just incredibly weak person who couldn't take the. So that was our weekend nutshell. Basically, I don't know if we missed anything. But it was fantastic. You as you're gonna love the interviews. We did. I hope you love Michael king. If you didn't. I mean, you you definitely Michael king. And he is as cool like that wasn't just for the individual cool, dude. So have you really cool to see him grow? You know, be build up and become a big time guy because I'm big fan of his right now. But and that's it. So next week Fishawy on the barstool network very very cool goal of ours. Since we started this thing didn't really know how it's gonna turn out. So our next episode that is our next. So you'll hear Johnstone next week. It's just the way things had to go here. And then after that, we don't know the order, but oh we're also going to tweak coupon casts a week starting Sobe Monday and Thursday releases. We're going to try the beginning of the launch will be we're just gonna give you all the interviews because they're mostly about spring training and stuff we really can't hold onto them. And we don't wanna hold them from you guys. We just can't give you all once we can't just do six years and one sorry, but they're very good. So Thursday will get him until probably season starts and the way the structure will probably go with the show. Thursday will probably be the more interview oriented part of the podcast while I still talk about crazy things. But the time in between Monday and Thursday, it's not a lot you can lead to. So we're we're trying to do interviews much. We can release Thursdays Monday and stuff. You guys got ideas for us, send us everything. Got if you haven't followed the short porch on Instagram yet where we've been trying to build it up as much. We can it's at the underscore is the shore underscore the underscore. For port. Okay. Yes. A fall that makes you do follow us. And so, you know, smooth, really an easy one to find really. I mean, it was taken so traumatised, very cool. Very very very good weekend. Made some good connections to for that. Hopefully will help us pick time during the season. Aside from the interviews and making connections, players wise, we made some good connections otherwise. So I hope really like the interview, and we will see you next week with John sterling.

Hello, and welcome to the Ray or MLB show. My name is Michael, and I'm a staff writer at the ringer, if you want to get up to speed on any of today's podcast, topics, you can read about them on the ringer dot com. Zach wrote about the Yankees in the wake of the Edwin, Encarnacion trade. I wrote about what the Padres might do heading into the trade deadline, and Ben wrote about the evolution the next form of the aging Clayton Kershaw. And we're gonna talk about all these things on the pod in just a moment. Sorry, was that cram on the keys? Zach I wish I was talking to you under better circumstances. But we got to the finish line, and we choked lake the two thousand seven Mets. I don't think we choke that bad. No, it not that bad. So we came in fourth, we had our, our state trivia championships over the weekend. We drove all doctor of all the way to Kalamazoo, and then I drove all the way essentially to Detroit, and we were in second place after the first round and the six of our first seven questions in the second round came in fourth at thirty two teams. Defeat the one exception in that run in that run of MRs was we correctly, answered the baseball question. And we got it really quickly this week. Yeah. I well, we said, at the time the question was was something like Roger Connor, was the major league leader in what statistical category until mid nineteen twenty one and I was like, well, there's one thing I know about Roger Connor, he was the guy who held the career home runs homerun record before Babe Ruth, so until next year. Yeah, we we'll get him next time. One team that's going to get them right now is the first place New York Yankees about whom you wrote, they were in first place before DD gregorious came back. They were in first place before they traded for Edwin Encarnacion and possibly by the time you at home or listening to this podcast. They will have activated one or both of Aaron judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Which like it feels like your dad, catching you smoke in home runs. And he makes you smoke the entire pack of home runs to make you sick to get you to stop doing it, yet, the Yankees have the two highest homerun hitters in the American League, and Edwin Encarnacion, Gary Sanchez. So they have the two highest home run hitters in the American League. And neither one is John Carlos Stanton or Aaron judge, there's this a lot of power here. And as exploited my piece the inky is have a top ten offense this year, but it's not quite as good as it had been the last two. Seasons. When judge Sanchez and friends had propelled them on this current run they were first in the majors in home runs. Each to the last two years, they were second and runs. Now, they're in the five to ten range, and that still quite good. It's an impressive accomplishment, given all the time that they're stars of missed. But they're not up at the level of lake the Minnesota Twins. And now I think I would put this lineup up with any in baseball even the Minnesota Twins lineup. Wow. I mean I just wanna take a moment to say how absurd a statement that would have been ten weeks ago. Like you're saying it's a big thing that the Yankees are as good as the Minnesota Twins in terms of, of in home runs. And the of course that's fun. But it really is sort of a statement on the game in twenty nineteen. I'm not going to attribute the entire twins ofensive performance to the ball. But this Yankees lineup I think, regardless of what the ball is doing would look formidable. Because DJ LeMay Hugh might be the worst or DD gregorious might be the worst hitter, but you're going to have when this entire group is back in healthy someone like Encarnacion or Sanchez or looped, Voight, hitting seventh or eighth and that's absurd. They would be a cleanup hitter on some teams. So I think it's becoming maybe a little more single faceted than it had been earlier in the season. Because now it's just a lot of guys who hit home runs and move state. Into station when they're not, you know, jogging around the basis. But I think that, that's a good problem to have the homerun thing in Venezuela about this a little bit, it home seems sorta like three pointers in that. It's something that old crusty old folks. The truism was. Yeah. You can do it in the regular season. But can you do it in the playoffs? And it just turned out that that's just the best way to score in, in either sport regardless of the situation and the Yankees. I mean it's just wall to wall power now, I guess, LeMay Hughes was going to say LeMay Hughes, the only exception but he's already got eight home runs and that was a decent season for him like he made the all star team playing his home games in chorus field. One year and hit eight home runs the entire year. And he's already got eight this season. I think that the Reisen homerun says those of us who pay attention to statistics. No has sort of masked. The overall. Decline in offense of home runs weren't being hit at a record pace. We'd be talking about the scoring swoon in baseball. So I wonder once we get to October. Sure it might be harder to hit home runs off the top pitchers, but it's even harder than that. Just string three singles in a row, one of my favorite stats so far this season. Justin Verlander has allowed twenty eight runs this year, and he is allowed seventeen home runs. So, basically, the only way to square off, someone like ver- Lander is to hit a solo home run, or to get someone on base and hit a two run shot. It's hard to score and other ways now. And the idea that the Yankees might be in trouble for a variety of reasons with the roster is kind of silly right now. But number one is that you can never have too many runs I talked about this in my piece. But there's no penalty for winning eight to five instead of winning four to one and we'll talk. I'm sure about what they'll do with their starting pitching going forward, but they basically got Internacional for free. All they had to give up to get him with some money and. Tampa Bay and Seattle are paying part of Encarnacion his contract and they had to give up a prospect who wasn't even in their top thirty before the season. Now, he looks better than that in Seattle firm system. But it's not like New York is short on right handed arms who can throw hard in their farm system. So basically they added a forty home run hitter for free. Let's talk about the starting pitching right now. There's a lot of average ish. Euro Plus lines for some reason, this sort of feels disappointing. And I'm not sure why because on at their starting pitching. It's been pretty good. I guess, is it just paxton's had trouble staying healthy or the, the absence of, of Luis Severino resistance, like the one place they have left to improve the that this is the focus for them improving their rotation. I think that's more where it is. Because the bullpens been very good. The lineups been very good and all you have left is there a tation? I think also there's some angst if you start maybe. Early. But if you start lining up potential playoff matchups like, unless Severino comes back dominant, the Yankees probably would have the worst starter in wildcard game against either Blake snow, James Paxton. And then if you go beyond that, to a divisional series like the Astros would have the two best starters in a series and I don't think there's anyone who the case could possibly add between now and the rest of the season, who would be as good as Justin for Lander coal the exception being Severino. But I think that sort of the Inkster rises is if you start projecting forward. Yes, the bullpens great. Yes. The lineups great. But you have a lot of pitchers who just aren't necessarily as trustworthy, complained that I think that is a problem, but I also for as much as I joke about James Paxton being overrated. He can be that dominant guy if he's healthy at the right time. And I think there is a worry matching up against a team like Tampa Bay. If you get them in, in a short series, you know what happens if how do you match up against snow? Glass now and Morton. Or how, how do you match up against Salem, price or coal Orlando, and whoever the, the Astros pull out for their that third spot in the rotation? But you need like they've got we've seen Paxton put up those outrageous. One game performances we've seen Severino Tanaka do it in big playoff moments assuming that that Severino comes back in his and is is full or is at full strength. But that means that the floor is high enough for guys like hat for, you know, whoever else is coming up d- dimicco, her mind, you know, when when he comes back with would probably would walk right back in a rotation spot. If you're replacing those guys that's, that's not like the KAI. If you're trying to get a better pitcher j half, for instance, you're going to have to give up a lot, and I don't know how many of those pictures are on the market on teams that don't need those pictures themselves. Does that make sense? Did I just completely tie that in? Not rhetorically. No. I was going to make the same point that it would almost be easier. I we talked about Texas recently and Texas, they had to rotation spots with E as above nine is really easy to make a meaningful upgrade on that. Whereas the inky is have everyone's kind of average. And like Madison Bumgarner is maybe an upgrade given his history. But I don't know what he would look like moving from San Francisco's ballpark to the Bronx and it's just hard to make upgrades there, which makes me wonder first off white Brian Cashman it will end up doing with the rotation. I think Severino honestly plays a large role in that because he'd be the best upgrade available, but he isn't really throwing it. Now, the target date is mid July at the best. So it's going to be pushing up against the trade deadline if he's not ready. And remember, there's no August trade this season July thirty first is the ultimate deadline for all trades. And the second thing is maybe you go the alternate route, they already have a very good bullpen, but they could use another. Other spot potentially for an ace reliever. Delon Bahamas has been shut down. Again, I believe, just kind of on the Severino path where he just keeps finding new ailments, when he's already hurt, someone like Chad green has pitched a lot better since recuperating. The miners, Tommy Canley has been better this year. But remember, a couple years ago, the he's had a really good bullpen. And they decided to add Canley and David Robertson at the deadline. I wonder if Cashman looks at what essentially, you just said, is someone I add really going to be much of an upgrade on hap- or dimming her mind and instead just ads like I dunno Kirby eight or Ken Giles or something to help shorten games in the playoffs even further it's a possibility. I'm not sure really what the best route is. But I'm sure he'll make at least one or two moves before the deadline every year, the Yankees come into this coming into the postseason. I feel like I've been doing this for five years since grantland. I've I've said somewhere the Yankees had there. Best pitcher going into the postseason sma- Sierra Tanaka who's good. But it's not you know, he's not scary necessarily, and they have one or two other trustworthy, starting pitchers end like seven knockout relievers. And I'm like, why not just go to like a three man rotation and have everybody just have the starter pitch three or four innings. And then just go one inning down the line sequentially. And I mean, imagine that. So even in this day and age. That'd be so weird. You couldn't imagine the Yankees doing it. But part of me wonders if that's the best path for it for them you almost could given the office in the playoffs. And I think one of the most impressive team wide pitching performances of this sort of new bullpen era, was there wildcard game in two thousand seventeen Luis Severino was knocked around in the first inning Chad green came in than they had Robertson, they'd Canley, etc. Who pitched the entire game that wasn't bullpen ING by you know that? Oh, that was ball, pending by necessity, not pending by plan, like Oakland. Tried in the wild card game last year. But the Indies have the pictures to do that. Chad green has been used as an opener five times already this season. And the issues are five and Owen, those games, of course, that's way too small a sample to derive any true, meaning going forward from that. But the five bulk guys who have followed him. It's been a mix of David Hale chance atoms. And Nestor court has junior. What if you replace Nestor Cortez junior in the playoffs with someone like damigella on who could go three or four innings going all out? I think this is an option. They would potentially explorer, especially if Tampa or Boston catches them, and they end up in the wildcard game. It's kind of an interesting situation overall because a team like Houston at this point, basically only focus on their playoff roster. The have two teams that are trying to catch them now. So they need to think about the next three months before they can shift full focus to October. Do you think? I guess Boston's close enough to be scary by now. Obviously, the razor only what game and a half back right now. So that's that might as well be tie with this, this much runway for the rest of the season. Yeah, I guess, fallen back into the, the wild card is genuine concern at this point. I mean, the, the Yankees are what five and a half games up on Boston right now and they still play each other, like fourteen more time. So I think it's certainly possible that they could be caught, especially now that Boston's rotation seems to be getting it together. I mean, Chris sales really strange. April is a thing of the past. Now Rick Portillo has been pitching really well lately, including a shutout performance against the twins last night. So I certainly don't think Boston is out of it, and it's fun in the American League. That's the only divisional race. We've really have right now I haven't given up on Cleveland possibly catching Minnesota yet but it certainly seems like the aliases the only divisional race we have in the AL right now. And I could see any of. These three themes one. Yeah. That, that is one thing that I'm glad that I was wrong about I thought this was going to be total. Chalk in the American League that there would be maybe one wildcard spot that wasn't locked up right? Off the, the Bapu between the AL east. And surprisingly competitive wildcard is, you know, you mentioned the Rangers, the Indians are still in it. This is shaping up to actually be a pretty good pennant race. And I'm I'm glad I was wrong about that. I'm just looking at the schedule. Now the Yankees and Boston play each other eight times a week and a half at now by and so that's like where you could really see some overreactions for both teams as going to say that's in July. You said, yeah. It's trying to think if, if FOX or ESPN is gonna have soccer they're going to need to push off. It's a four games at the end of July and then four games at the start of August. So in that intervening span, depending on what happens at the first series, you could maybe see them alter their trading plans. But I think the broader point is, this is all. So where there are tation questions come into play. The Incas notably did not budge on offering Dallas kaikal anything more than the qualifying offer. Kaikal ended up signing in Atlanta. Maybe kaikal isn't a huge upgrade on someone like he, he makes such a bigger difference for the Braves just like they just need a steady hand, I wrote that when he signed like they just needed a grownup in the rotation. And the Yankees rotation is made up entirely of grownups, and they need like a stud, which I don't think kaikal is anymore. It's valuable is as he will be to a playoff playoff bound Braves team. But the, the point I'd make there is that maybe that's not a huge upgrade in the plas by right now in the inky is right now you need it necessary Cortez every fifth day when they see Sobat every fifth day, and like doing a hormones on the DL or on the I L I think that's where it matters that the next three months, actually means something to the keys in that they can't shift full focus to Tober yet. Well, the Yankees and the Red Sox down the stretch. And my Tampa Bay rays, and your Tampa Bay rays. I'm debating whether or not to hold you to the Tampa Bay rays will win the east or whether I'm gonna give you close enough. If they like if they get the first wildcard spot and finish a game out. I am this is something this is my big trade deadline consideration. What if the raise when, like ninety seven games, but the inky is with ninety eight. Yup. Then you're wrong. That's. I guess so. And I guess that's something I would have to live with this series right now is really interesting, Masahiro Tanaka shutout the race last night. But I think the rays have the pitching advantage, both tonight and tomorrow with raise win both of those games they're back in the lead. And I think regardless of where they ultimately end up. And, you know, I'm not trying to claim credit yet, but regardless of where they ultimately end up. I think this Tampa Bay team is certainly exerting more pressure on New York, and Boston that a lot of people expected, heading in that is certainly true or you're not trying to, to claim credit for your definitely putting the marker down. I mean, no, I, I have to take what I can get this point. Yeah. All right. Well, this has been illuminating is always Zach, we'll talk to you again next week. Thanks for coming on until then.

Hi, my next guest is someone who spends a lot of time around one of the most interesting teams in baseball team that we have talked about a lot on the pod. And we are happy to, to have him bring his first hand first hand knowledge of the situation, so from MLB dot com AJ castle. How you doing? Good. The Padres are one of the most interesting teams baseball what, what time to be alive. While I was gonna say you, you've been on the speed for a few years now by gag was for forever was the most interesting Padre of the past ten years who's Jimmy Baker who's a fictional player from TV show that only lasts ten episodes. But this is certainly no longer the case. Yeah, I've had more storylines this year on a beat than I did in the in the last three combined and we're only we're not even June yet. So it's kinda goes to show you the difference. And I think even the interesting part about the Padres, the fact that they have good young players, an interesting guys, the follow, like even if they end up not being that good this season. I think a lot of fans here with L U. Like we'
