"Out of that. You should bring up absolutely you. Kidding goes on the resume who we couldn't and that stuff matters. You get the bring the ladder out from behind the scenes and let the kids cut down the net. If you find yourself in that position that would be too funny. I think you should try it. I mean it's it's worth the effort. I don't know i would enjoy joining us on a win. The opener ladder. Is that what you're suggesting. Yeah absolutely absolutely. I think it'd be great. You gotta listen dutch. What i've learned here watching all these other sports leagues all across the world. Play for the last eight months is there is something to you gotta manufacture your own energy at some point here you know in the absence of fourteen thousand four hundred and fourteen inside of us. I'm sure you've already thought about it. You do have to manufacture a little bit of that energy and excitement yourself. Yeah we're actually gonna try out crowd noise today. I think today or tomorrow when we're playing if we liked to play with the manufactured crowd noise so we're going to give that a go and see what that sounds like. I like that idea house. The rest of the non conference schedule looking. How many games do you do. You wanna play. How many do you have lined up to play. We get seven games in the non conference because of the pandemic. And we've got some good ones lined up Arizona state byu ucla irvine. We're still trying to finalize a a series of saint. Mary's we don't have the contract and that don yet but that's as good a not conference competition is we've ever played and so we're excited by that then we'll piece in a couple more games Based on how the conference schedule comes out. We still don't ever conference schedule. The head coaches way back when we started talking. So let's just play a traditional schedule Two weeks later that evolved into well. Let's play a par a pod somewhere trying to get half the season in a pot and then play regional opponents that went by the wayside and now the latest Thing that we're gonna do is play back to back the same opponent either on the road or at home so if we go to utah state. We'll play utah state on thursday and then we'll play him again on saturday at utah state and come home with the same team for two games so it's not ideal but it it sits to what the environment is.

It's tony gonna have the ability to change. You know if you bring in. Chris rock and they're going to have the ability to change.

Y'all honestly i'm still just before and a few interviews talking about this. He's the greatest baseball mind. I've ever been around and i mentioned some pretty good ones and it's taking nothing away from the guys. I played for because they're all phenomenal managers but he just was excellent in a lot a lot of areas. That's really interesting.

"In the third inning of the game in april. probably not. it's it's going to be so so so interesting. I just hope that it doesn't suck all the fun out of his team because they really truly have an exciting roster and it's only going to go three agency. Well i listen. I think that larussa smart enough to understand all of that. And he's he's not dumb enough to try to just impose old school ways on a team like that and suck the life out of them aggie and even said this week that once. Jerry reinsdorf told ozzy that he would not be the manager as was pretty upset about it but when he was told that it was going to be. Tony larussa is. He said it's the greatest move they could make. So why don't we jason. Let's bring in. Let's bring in someone else. Who has played for tony larussa. Maybe he can put your concerns at ease. How about somebody ryan -tario should we give them a call. I jason. so you're upset about the larussa higher. Because you're such a big white sox fan. I want to bring in someone. I'm not sure if he can actually give us make us feel a little better about it but he did play for tony larussa two time world series champ former cardinal and former cub now host of the riott podcast on one. Oh four or five. Espn baton rouge ryan. -tario is joining us. Hi ryan alario. Great peggy our you. We are doing okay. But i gotta talk jason off the ledge here because he really wanted. Aj hinch in chicago on the south side and instead it looks like jerry reinsdorf got his way and is kind of you know making things better at thirty four years ago when larussa was fired by the white sox played for tony larussa. So first of all. Were you shocked when you heard that. The white sox hired him and brought him out of retirement to manage again. I look i wouldn't say shocked was a little surprise. You know when when the Brought back last year houston kinda bianca. I thought i had say. And he's probably gonna come on and manage again talking to rival those guys had and you know let's stuff with No i mean. I don't think shocked the word surprise. Probably a little bit like you said that. There's some very qualified managers that are out there still but i think doing very job You know we you. You played for him right before he retired winning. Winning the title in saint louis. You were brought. I believe they traded for you right that season. I signed a finding a free agent. Okay so you signed as a free agent so take us back to twenty larussa. At time was sixty in his mid sixties late sixties. What was he like to play for. you know what what should we expect. Well you know. I was very blessed to play hall of fame. Caliber managers You know l. la and baker. Joe torry Tony bruce bochy. You know so. It was really awesome to me to be around. These base. Bikes and leaders Tony of all of those guys are prepared By far meaning nothing taught him off guard. He had sticky stotts and information for everything that was going on the of today's game We will not be too much for him. he's probably actually gonna love it. you know. And and And the great communicate. You know a guy that can get that can communicate with all different types of baseball player that you had no clubhouse. Major league can be extremely diverse Guys from all over. America different backgrounds. But with all the major sports you know probably soccer is similar but you have players different areas of the world and bomb different cultures and tony was just the master force communicating with all these players. Play hard for jason. Good thing that the thing that i've been seeing on twitter and honestly little bit and mentally stay with myself that i think people are getting the most caught up in the age. Seventy six years old is not young. No matter how good you look no matter how good you sound. Do you think that the age is really gonna matter because people are worried. So much about their god. It's gonna peak when he's eighty and we needed demand for the next decades. You think age is really gonna matter. What the objective is a racist to win the world series. That's a great question. i mean what. What is the manager. really do in any way. It's a great question to ask now more than ever when we see a move like kevin cash smell. And it's been rumored you know that came from cop and everybody says the general managers another shippers actually making out the lineup smile and and he manages just million in your head. You've seen managerial salaries. Go down because of that. They've added back in analytic support You know zoom meetings with harvard grads get never played baseball before telling you know major grand jury who should probably in what condition in a game has shifted and changed quite a bit. I don't think tony's age has anything to do with you know now. He's even in good health. I know that You know he's got a ton of energy But i i don't see that being a problem it would be a problem if he says. Hey guys i'm gonna manage for a couple of years and then i'm out you know. Then you gotta wonder free agents are gonna wanna come in and play. If they don't know what type of stability gonna be a banjo standpoint. But i see in taking the job. Jason and last he's got five six seven years in and you know to give to organization a couple named i've seen brought up your your and chris carpenter was mentioned as a potential to be the new pitching coach. And on your molina. Who's created this year twitter. This week the his name was mentioned as potentially being brought into the white sox backup catcher so can be on either of the two former teammates. The impacts and House like their abilities would help the white sox if they were coming out the organization next year we'll start ever see out again back up so You know we're talking about the greatest catch and every year on you know. I don't care what you say guys. Expensively impacted the game in an era where great athletes. I mean the the peak of the athlete in baseball and yanni was shut down the offensive game. Changer thought himself to be a a really good hitter. You know so. I don't see now if you could get chris carpenter to manage to coach and that'd be a great get car has some really interesting traits. We saw what he did on the field. You know i'm saying. Saudi did eleven in the world series. Great career prior to that but just a leader in every sense of the word players gravitated toward him when he spoke people listening.

"The baby. Boomer i'm jason crane refreshing. Ut austin generation nine editor joke ruin and you're you're doing okay. Jason you sound a little under the weather how you feeling really thick now. I'm going to be completely i. I have felt the second awhile Fingers crossed it's not co- bit i'm gonna go get tested once for this and You know hopefully all's well some coming home and a half weeks so i guess if there's one silver lining of this that and getting sick before i come home so then i'll be able to get the full home experience on back all but Kinda sucks right now especially with the great weather last football game. This weekend it's really inconvenient time dissect but i was at the focus on my health above have times. Okay buddy. I feel bad for you all right. Let's let's talk about this episode. Your white sox hired tony larussa. After firing manager of the year candidate. Ricky run to who took the outsiders to the postseason for the first time in twelve years. They hire a septuagenarian hall of fame. Coach tony larussa. Clearly jerry reinsdorf decision. Everyone knows the story that he never got over the fact that he let hawk harrelson fire. Larussa thirty four years ago. When hawk was the general manager and now late in life. He's making amends. Jason mo- sox fans hate this. Move if you were to believe talkradio here in chicago. How do you feel This so this is one of the things. Obviously i q things about the white sox before they get out. Here was the things that might happen. People were talking about the field. Talk about and when i heard the first time in my twitter like there's no way how they're going to do this because the back was against the organizational direction of the young team with players that are under control for the next five sixty. You would like a manager was used to working with that. Aj hinch and and manager who is able to cater to a young clubhouse a clubhouse that obviously has a lot of fun. let's celebrations in the handshake. I mean clubhouses very diverse of one of the most diverse clubhouses in baseball. And they hire seventy six year old manager who has left baseball before defensive shares manager challenging and statcast than in the game. So it's gonna be really interesting honestly. I've been telling all my friends and everybody i've talked to. They win the world series next year. The move will always because for me. Because all i ever wanted is to see what sock world series but if we are two years on the line and the white sox of not wanting wealth two years at the very least made it to the world. Series is one of the worst in sports history. The white sox had the opportunity to the top five managers in sport and age agent. Alex cora and then an interview either of them which is an absolute disaster in its own right but rousseau there's no doubting that he's the greatest man history of the sport that i believe the game has tapped them up. I don't know he's going to be able to adjust to the game. Like i said he was not thankful the last time when the manager challenges in fact he. He's been retired for three years before the manager challenged within the play. Or you're going to be and feel the series he's going to be able to just three better minimum our guys giulino or dallas parkway going to be left in the game for too long i. I'm really concerned. I'm intrigued and i'm really hoping that. End up being the best move. But i can't help selfish on jerry reinsdorf part but you know what's crazy though is that he's supposed to be the anti analytics higher. Get when tony. Larussa came into the game as a manager. He was considered the nouveau manager. Because he was a lawyer he had a law degree and he was outsmarting everybody else and people thought. Oh gosh this is new school baseball. It's never going to work so if he was able to change it back then. What's not to say that he can't adapt now. He's a smart guy. Well he's the only time. Baseball fact white sox test stuff in to stanford grads and as ancient sam fold so clearly. There are other smart guys out there. I suppose the cards of the ability to it for a second time to a changing game at the age of seventy six is something that i really really worry about i again. It goes back to shifting. Goes back to do. Pick changes pinch hitting tampa bay. Rays came to game short of winning a world series. And they did that through. Platooning airings teams for the most part using openers have their playoff games and fifty percent playing the match. Yes it ended up coming back to bite you having cash in the the cold lake now and in the fifth or sixth innings saying. But that's just a small small sample size especially for ran. The table was topsy. The american league made it all the way to the world series and put up a fight against an incredibly good dodgers san so again you need to have analytics baseball. And what. I've been telling people what are the most the higher rehires around him. It's not going to be as much about hamilton about the bench coach in the pitching coach. Now i just hope that they can make the right decision with those two because truth be told. The bench coach is likely going to be the max manager and if they get somebody good like joe's fodder from the astros or a heard dickers- he's named thrown out there a million and a half times Even to sign yada your bellina the backup catcher. The theory wonder yati couldn't breathe it into being a future manager because of his leadership and game calling skill so it's gonna be more about. Who hires around him. Obviously the micro. The microscope will be very much under this year. it makes me laugh a little bit to the white sox had has this in their hands. Ej answer could have fired him world series winning manager when the no successful managers. Recent memory say what you will about cheating. But i think that a lot of people would rather have a proven cheater than seventy six year old at this house while you're gonna see lot of them now that he's in the division and that could really really come back to the white sox rhythm stars is absolutely you know who else is in the division the one of the youngest managers in baseball rocco baldelli from the twins If former larussa understudying. Mike machine and terry francona include went. Who he could be seen the end of his managerial career. And then the indians are going to hire young. They can hire sandy alomar junior. Who was brought up to the white sox role in. There's so many storylines especially in the al central next year. And i really hope to. God the ricky renner retired somewhere else because that truly is one of the most depressing sad baseball stories ever especially for white sox end up winning the world series in the next two years. But you know. I do agree that they needed to change. And it's gonna be so interesting seeing how larussa manages guys like Tim anderson and louise robert and jimmy court going to be allowed to to pull up his sleeves and show off his by us. When he's pitching probably not is anderson going to be able to bat with a homer.

"Tony LaRussa as the new manager of the White Sox. We continue to take their phone calls on the still really surreal and surprising move. Even Ricana admitted that that was not what he was considering when the Press conference was had to fire Ricky Regnery a few weeks back, so we'll take your calls 3323776 while all the big names on the bears in the north that did not improve no Robinson, a still in concussion protocol did not crack. Remember Taylor. Gabriel found himself in concussion protocol last year and actually was out for quite some time. I'm not connecting those dots directly. I'm just refreshing your memory that there are some instances where players going to concussion protocol, and it does take a while to get back. Mac, who did not practice with the ankle injury yesterday, did not practice once again today, so that's two days in a row. Then the other big name is Cody White Hair. Those air the Big three. White hair again has that calf injury And this will be the second straight day that Cody white haired lady that I am actually personally with no inside information. Mork concerned with white hair than Robinson's availability that am Mac. I I've I am expecting Khalil to play again. I don't have any inside information, but I think of the three I would be most hopeful with his chances of playing now, if you look at Khalil Mack when he's been with the Bears, he usually place through the bumps and the bruises, But I do believe when he missed two games in 18 wasn't it due to an ankle injury? I think you are correct. So are correct. It's something you gotta monitor here. And you hope that at least their limited tomorrow the only good news that I see on this is that Cole commit. Put the back issue and he was limited yesterday was a full participant today, so they're going to need all hands on deck, especially if Robinson can't go offensively..

"Press level Tony LaRussa was asked about Colby Rasmus a lot that is very inaccurate and very unfair of him and and make it doesn't betray our relationship even close I said this over and over again so I must say it again well there was we have a good relationship I will bet you have a great relationship he's a second year player last year and once in awhile you know in the in the learning process are going process manager so this issue is a third of our members with everybody goes with veterans your name thing that was romantic and and and I'll say it again forward our worst we have a good relationship the nature of larue said rast Mrs relationship was scrutinized over and over and over again the best have a great relationship at I'm excited about call with me are Jim it seems Larissa was always talking about Rasmus whether it be in the season in the offseason in spring training around and around and around the discussions went speculation about Rasmus and his role with the team his relationship to the manager if he was happy that his father Tony would talk to the media it seems like Colby Rasmus was always a topic of conversation Rasmus was the cardinals first round pick twenty eighth overall in the two thousand and five draft out of Russell county high school in Alabama after tearing through the minor leagues he made his big league debut April seventh two thousand nine at age twenty two and played a hundred and forty seven games that year getting to fifty one with a three oh seven on base in a four oh seven slugging percentage finishing eighth in rookie of the year voting and posting nearly two wins above replacement according to baseball reference the next year Rasmus took off his age twenty three year in twenty ten his second full year in the big leagues a two seventy six three sixty one for ninety eight slash with twenty three home runs and wins above replacement mark of just over three and a half once again according to baseball reference so to anyone not familiar with the saga it may seem a bit odd that it wasn't his plate that dominated the conversation when it came to Colby Rasmus your call to the St Louis post dispatch Colby Rasmus was their starting center fielder had had successful years in the past but not only that work but was the torch bearer for the new approach to drafting he was chaplain al's first tech he was the first Peck the cardinals had after the lost draft after the forgotten dropped after the draft where they actually downsize number scouts he was the first pick of the draft that was analytically driven in here and he was a high school outfielder and one of the analytics that they got was actually a scalp pacing off the wall true links of a prep high school baseball field to see how far some of Colby Rasmus is home runs went whether or not the fence was right so yeah I mean he was he was the guy he was prospect zero of even of the current group right like he's the one who signaled a change and there it was in the majors in again all right I mean he was slumping base being out played he was having difficulty he did not hide that he did not nacta resonate well with LaRussa in September of two thousand and ten cardinals manager Tony LaRussa confirmed that Rasmus had asked to be traded the St Louis post dispatch first reported that Rasmus asked for the trade in late July as the cardinals played the cubs at Wrigley Field Joe Straus offered details of a closed door meeting between LaRussa and Rasmus and threats to be sent down to triple A. Memphis the manager budding heads with the young outfielder once again Derrick Goold or also one point in time to come out to dinner I believe again it was a walkie and tried to connect with him it just could not find a way to make him feel comfortable because the thought was if you could get comfortable then he could play well the question was whether even really like planned or with this just the stress of it all and all the different voices filling his ears was a little bit too much I'm a player and I'm a leader on this ballclub FF I hear somebody saying they don't want to be here then you know all right you shouldn't be here you know and that's the way it is and pools voiced his frustration thing for him to come up and I'm raw and selling us a four X. ray that you guys should know about it I don't think those pre professional by hand you.

Discussion of the happenings at the MLB Winter Meetings 2018

"Yankees. Mets Marlins deal that would involve JT real Muto Noah Syndergaard Miguel and do Har. I'm Ed Rosario. Couple other moving parts real Muto into any with the Mets. The. Yenkey would end up with Noah, Syndergaard, not sure really what the Marlins would get besides Ahmed Rosario would have to be a lot more than just that for them to give up JT real Muto. I mean, no question about that. So it just comes down to just what's fun going on there at the winter meetings. We're going to check in in Las Vegas momentarily. But I'll tell you what it's just always fun to see the rumors, and how about this one, Lance Lynn. Gets three year thirty million dollar contract. I must be getting old here, but the amount of money that teams throw around on mediocre players is stunning yesterday. We talked about Andrew mccutchen whose past his prime getting fifteen million dollars a year. Now, you're talking about Lance Lynn getting ten million dollars a year. Now, it's a step back from the twelve million you made last year, but still he's not crying poverty making ten million dollars a year as an average pitcher coming off a season with a four point seven seventy IRA. Lance Lind's were ten million dollars. You can't be serious. Producer Shawn Watson Makia. Lance Lynn's a ten million dollar player in today. You're getting from the Yankees this year. Eight and a half is it. So then yeah is worth ten million dollars. Yeah. Is he worth more than of course, a bath is thirty eight and going on thirty nine these finished. But still had a better here than Lance Lynn. Right better longer. That's true. That's true. I wouldn't give in ten million a year if that's the case. So here's what I don't understand yet. What's the market going to be like for the closers like these relievers? Right. What's the market gonna be like for them? I think the market has gotten bigger and bigger for relief pitchers. And I just think that honestly like when you're the Andrew Miller's of the out of venos- or the kimbrough's or the David Robertson's Zach Britain's of the world, what's the money to be like for those guys because are they more valuable than a Lance Lynn in today's baseball. Right. Yeah. Right. I mean, are they more valuable? They are right. Well, let's in is reliever. Well, don't forget that. Well, but he's more starter. Right. He can do both. He could eat. Yeah. But I think they're bringing them in to be a starter. I would think. I think that's why you're gonna pay Lance Lynn ten million bucks. It's not my money though. That's the funny thing it's not my money. But it's just always like unfathomable to me when I look at the amount of money. Some of these players end up getting it just really incredible. I don't think we'd have the law jam like we had last year. You remember Lance Lynn didn't sign too late. He was one of those guys that was taking part of that crazy camp in Bradenton Florida the free agent training camp. Remember the spring training for the the free agent players. So he at least has signed early it. Seems that look I think what's interesting is when you talk about Manny Machado, and you talk about a Bryce Harper. You could eliminate ninety five percent of the teams in baseball from being involved in that. Right. I you know, that there's going to be ninety ninety five percent teams that are not gonna get involved. And those guys are already shopping in that bargain-basement been they're the ones that look at a Lance Lynn and say, hey, maybe there's good value there. That's the market for those guys. So I think the question's going to be for the big market teams. That may be interested in a Bryce Harper. Manny Machado when are they going to put some pressure on? The Scott Boris is the world saying, look, we gotta get something done here. Because in the meantime, other guys are signing elsewhere, right? If you're looking for an outfielder and Bryce Harper's who you've looked at and you end up not getting Bryce Harper who's going to be. Left on the market in two or three weeks, depending on when he's going to decide to sign at some point. You say, okay, we got a pivot away because we haven't gotten any word. Do we sign the Andrew McCarthy since the Phillies, frankly, did they make a statement by signing mccutchen? Which is. Yeah, we'll go and get ourselves the infielder Machado. But maybe we're not going to go after Bryce Harper. Like a lot of people say we are. Or are we going to now go out and spend another ridiculous amount of money and get Bryce Harper. We've brought in two new outfielders into the mix with Andrew mccutchen. And Bryce Harper. That's the interesting thing to me when you look at what's happening because I think teams don't wanna be used against each other. Right. Nobody wants to be put into a bidding war, and that's exactly where Scott Boras makes his money. He wants a bidding war for Bryce Harper. He wants a bidding war first clients. And the fact is a bidding war, though takes time. And if you have a bidding war teams going to get involved, and because the money is going to be so incredibly large. Then if you're willing to go thirty to thirty five million dollars a year on Bryce Harper, and you don't end up getting him. And then you have to pivot quickly away the warriors what's still left on the market by the time. I'm eliminated from the Harper competition or what's going to be left. If I'm looking for a shortstop slash third baseman wants Manny Machado signs, and I'm left holding the bag and the other names out. There are Freddie Galvez, and I'll Sita's Escobar and a Denny hetch of Iria guys who can't hit a lick. So I think that's what teams have to weigh here. Sean in terms of what exactly they need to do and getting involved with the big names, and how long are they willing to sit there and kind of have that money sitting there in escrow because they don't want obviously go out and start using it on other players to Bryce Harper makes a decision. They might be like crap we spent too much. We can't make that deal for Bryce Harper. Well, I mean, that's a possibility. But I don't see that happening. Because teams have an idea about Bryce Harper. They're talking to Scott Boris. They know if he has interest, so they're going to save the money until they hear his final answer. Yeah. But then they may hurt themselves. That is true. That's the problem. They may be hurting themselves. See I think the Phillies as much as I think they overpaid for Andrew mccutchen. Right. I think what the Phillies are looking at is. Look we need to outfielders. We're going to be in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes. Because we have a lot of money to spend. We got fifteen million dollars on the books this year and outfield with Andrew mccutchen. We can still fit another thirty thirty five million with Bryce Harper. Maybe another thirty million with Manny Machado, whatever it is. And maybe they can go out and make a big splash with everything. Right. That's the team that I think is going to be intriguing because if there's any team that potentially will go out and we'll get not just Harper, but also Machado. It's the Phillies. There's no other team in baseball right now, you can see spending money to bring in both Harper Machado and adding sixty to seventy million dollars payroll. The only team that can absorb that type of hit is affiliate because their payroll number isn't very high for next year. That would be fascinating, Sean. If the Philadelphia Phillies come out of the winter meetings or come out of the two thousand eighteen year, and they have signed Harper and Machado. And by the way, it's not crazy to think they could do it. Seriously. Heard that too. It is crazy that signing both of those guys. Why not? Why not six million? In two players for the next ten years. Yeah. They got the money. Got the money crazy. Seriously. They got the money to do it. Why not love to see it happen? I seven hundred million. Yeah, they're not doing that. I don't remember the Phillies are about to start their own regional networks soon to okay. They have a terrible TV deal. They're about to start their own regional network. To me be interesting to find out what that means financially. Because I thought there a big market team people show up at citizens Bank park, the Phillies, you know, are they make money. The question is if they get their regional network, they can be making a heck of a lot more money. If that's the case. Yes. Seven hundred million dollars over the next ten years from shadow and Harper, and you know, how packed the stands. No question about it for ten years going with those two big names. All right. So what did Tony LaRussa say backing up Harold Baines for a hall of fame induction? We'll tell you next going deep. Dan, Schwartzman, NBC sports radio in the NBC sports radio mobile app.

"I talk to uh tony larussa during the winter i ask them about the hangover and they said look there's nothing you can do there is going to be a hangover any it is amazing that we have not seen any team repeat his champion uh since those yankee teams back in the late nineties uh and what uh i think fix the last seven teams won the world series is number might be wrong but it's about this right i think six the last seventeen to one the world series didn't make the playoffs the following year i think for you know for the cubs for other teams at a championship level teens the giants have been a great example of what we talked about them being the even year team uh i it feels like that because the postseason goes all ons for so long because the pitching is drained uh we the extra layers of a playoff so less fifteen twenty years the teams it does take a toll on them and they pay the price of following year now i we saw with the mets last year and uh you know but the debts this season i mean not related to that it's been a rough year but with the trade deadline coming up on a month and a half from now in the mets decide to become sellers who do you think is the most intriguing player that they'll have to offer boy they're in a tough spot gnat regard uh you know a big i think a general everybody needs pitching every contenders looking for starting pitcher maybe they're looking for some relief help uh and that's why guys like uh lucas dude on the other hand may not have the sort of market value that you would anticipate because this year it just works out out that when you look at the contenders in what they're looking for there just is no water need among the position players uh no i talk to general managers about this last week that uh you know if you are if you're the reds you of as act codes are there really aren't that many landing places for him if you are the pirates in at some point you wanna put andrew makupe now there there are not contenders clamoring.
