"A regular basis to make sure that you don't have those issues. Okay, so a seed test is the way to understand if you have deliverability problems. I think that the takeaway here is you can run tests that are ad hoc tests like a seed test understand are your emails actually being delivered how they're being received. To me, the biggest thing to think about is monitoring. You're not going to know before there is an email deliverability problem. So you need to realize it as they are starting and start to change your behaviors. And that's one of the biggest things is recognition of the problem is almost the hardest thing. You're going to go through, you're going to be testing things. If you're in a large organization, you're going to have a lot of people sending a lot of emails and you might have one bad actor that sinks the ship for everyone. So to realize that that's happening and realizing that the boat is taking on water, you need to be able to understand how many emails you're sending. What are the deliverability rates basically how many emails that you're sending are bouncing? And then you're looking at things like your open rates, your click through rates, your reply rates, what are some of the signals that are being sent. And when you start to see a decrease in things like your open rate and your reply rate, then it's time to start changing your behaviors. So to me, that's what we focused on when we had deliverability problems. Once we had them solved, is monitoring. We changed our behavior how we were sending emails, how many accounts we were setting up front. We're going to talk about that stuff tomorrow. But the key to avoiding deliverability nightmares is to monitor your deliverability. And to me, that's the biggest takeaway in one of the biggest things I learned from you, Yana. So have I said thank you and have I told you lately how much I love you? Okay, good. Well, that wraps up this episode of the martech podcast.

"When you're thinking about monitoring, how do you figure out whether this is happening? We went through the exact same process for 6 months and we weren't sending always the same volume of email and I'll be very open and honest about this. Here's our process. We have the list of the 7000 mar tech companies, and we go find the marketing executives and we go and find their email addresses. They're generally pretty easy to find. You could look on LinkedIn and there's a million researchers that can go find people's email address. So we have a researcher that goes through these lists, finds the company and we email one or two contacts per company at the 7000 mar tech companies. And generally we email what used to be a hundred leads a week. So a hundred unique emails per week in a four email sequence. We did that process for a year and a half. This is nothing new. Now, at sometimes we said, okay, we need more sales. Let's do 200 emails instead of 100 and then sometimes we would drop it down to 50. But generally we never had deliverability problems until whatever it was two, three months ago, when we found you. So if the process is the same in theory the data should be the same, was it just bad luck for us that we got ten people at once that said no, I don't want this email or did something happen that triggered the deliverability problems? So there's two things here. You can be right there at the fine line where you're not a bad center. You're obviously not a spam, you're not somebody who's trying to steal people's money or you just like sending a billion emails like, hey, please, buy my service a million times. You're not a bad sender. We're not a perfect one either. You don't have that perfect credit score that even if you've forgot to pay yourself on Bill and it's fine. You're still getting the house loan. The other part is that we keep forgetting that security in all domains is just getting more strict and more straight. People are becoming more effective at spamming and the spend filters have to counter attack that. So as time progresses, and it's going really, really quickly. 15 years ago, deliverability was all about which wasn't really a thing. It was all about IPs. From which computer to come from too much premises from his computer, I don't know if this is computer. And that was it. And there are other things that came into play. The block lists that are being trying to gather data and then re share it with all the inbox and the spam filters, spin filters got smarter. They started looking at engagement. They started looking at these having the computing power to just compare between their own customers and say, you know, this guy kind of likes this email on this guy complains about emails, watch who had transitioned not to breastfeed. So those things are becoming more and more complex are becoming smarter and the laws are all dictating, you shouldn't email people. You don't know. And it makes sense. It makes sense in a very practical utopian kind of world, but like you said before, if I want you business, I'm not going to go knocking on doors. I need to get in front of them. And that's where the vicious cycle starts because the spam filters in the United States are not going to work differently for me because I'm in Europe and differently for you. We're both using Google. So what do you think Google does? They're not going to go to the American laws and stay fine. You can even whoever the hell you want. They will go and it will start dearing to the laws that are stricter. It's too much mortgage is impossible to maintain some filters based on loss that are constantly changing. So they're starting to become stricter and stricter and enforcing policies because either they're going to get fined or people are going to stop complaining, and they're going to lose users. If they're letting spam through, people will stop using female when they will go somewhere else. So this is like a huge debate and this is where I come in always after there's a problem. And then the question is always, I've been doing this for 12 years now, really, and it's like, yeah, you got caught. Something was one red flag too many. And that's it. And now all eyes are on you, and you're walking around with a bloody nose and you're like, I didn't do it. And it gets really tough. All right, so I'm walking around with a gun that has smoke coming out of it and a knife with blood on the tip of it and apparently I've been a bad actor for years, even though, you know, my open rates and my I get it, look, that's a spam filter's job and they're trying to protect people. And I think that the reality is businesses are trying to make new contacts and they're using emails as an outreach campaign like we were doing. It is a way to make introductions. And there's a way around it though. Well, the problem is that we're not doing a one to one email campaign we're doing a one to many email campaign that looks like a one to one email campaign because it is customized and personalized. So we do our research and we do our homework, but we say relatively the same thing to everyone. Now, here's the big question for you is you said that everybody comes to you when they have a problem. Is there a way to avoid coming to you? Nothing personal, but is there a way that you should be doing a better job monitoring email deliverability so you understand when you should pull back on the throttle? How do you actually figure out if you have a deliverability problem before it's a real problem? Perfect. So what I usually suggest to people is what we did at the beginning. You're like, I'm having an issue. I don't really know what it is. Is that this is a doubt, let's find out. And what we did was a seed test, a feed like a thing that you planned. These tests and what that does is very simple. I gave you a bunch of email addresses, send a regular email to regular campaign to this list for me. And on my end, all these inboxes email or not. And we can create a graph of which of the amox is perceived the email, where did the receive it in spam or inbox? And that gives us a lot of information because as we know different spam filters look at different things. Therefore, if you block with one spam filter, you don't block with the other. You can kind of give us an idea of where the issue is coming from. Is it a list issue? Is it an IP issue? Does somebody poofing you? We can figure that out together. And that's usually the starting point. And it's also the same thing you would do in order to monitor on a weekly basis or depending on how many emails you send a month. You just do a C tax, it'll say, hey, you know, everything's fine. Everyone's getting my email. Female who, whatever muxes are important to you, and you can ensure that they're always going to the inbox. Now, sometimes things go to spam, but just like a credit score, it can never be a 100%. It's usually around 95%, 200, that seller amazing good reputation in boxing rates. And there's a difference between delivery and deliverability. So delivery is when you send an email and somebody receives it. The inbox says, yep, I exist. I grab the email. Deliverability is the second step. So the email exists and could accept an email, what did the spam filter do? What did the inbox do? Did it put into the inbox, which would be good deliverability? Did it put it in spam, or did it put a nowhere? That's where the difference is. An email marketing service provider, the mail chimps and the flow millers of the world, they can let you know how many of those emails were received, not how many of those actually went to the inbox. That's information nobody has other than G Suite and Gmail, and they have that information. No one else does. When you do a C test, you're just sending emails out to a bunch of different boxes and the inbox exists. And there's a system that tells you, yes, I received it or not. This is an easiest cheapest way to know if you're having the ability issues or if you do it on.

But before we get to today's interview, we're going to kick off the show with a marketing minute, where we invite a friend of the martech podcast to help us answer listener questions in 60 seconds or less.

And G two asks what automations have organizations implemented in their middle and back office teams to better serve their end users. All right, here's John's answer. You know, automation can be a great way to create a better backend office experience and serve your customers your end users better. Obviously, the most basic things like a CRM, like a help desk. Those kinds of tools certainly make the communication make the record keeping of communicating even easier. But I find that one of the best tools to automate is to also create a hub so that your project management, your help desk, your CRM, or all talking through a hub, the hub that we use that I find is really powerful for this is slack. Slack keeps us out of email so that we're not firing back and forth as we try to serve clients, but it also has so many integrations now that allow us to keep conversations separate and keep everybody on the same page really for out as much time as we need. We can keep those threads going. Thanks, John.

All right, here's the second part of my conversation with January aspera, the deliverability expert at email console. Jana Torrey, welcome back to the mar tech podcast. Thank you. I'm glad to be back. Have I told you lately how much I love you? Have I told you lately how much I care? Yes, yes, you have. I don't even know who sings that song. Maybe it's Lionel Richie. Maybe it's Stevie Wonder. Either way, Jana, you've helped me so much with my deliverability problems. And the truth is, the first step in figuring out how to solve deliverability problems is recognizing that you have deliverability problems. So yesterday, when we started our conversation, you told us how email works. You go into your inbox. You send an email. You have to make sure that that email is being sent from an authenticated account, and there's three phases of that. Do you own your domain? What tools have you given access to your domain and basically a second level of authentication to make sure that all the emails that are being sent are valid? So that's your dcam SPF and D Mark authentications, then all your emails are going through block list that gather data and they tell the email service providers or the inboxes, whether that email should be passed through, whether it should be sent to spam, and the Gmail is in the Microsoft of the world, basically decide how that email gets funneled, whether it's to your inbox outright blocked or whether it goes into spam. The problem is when you're sending emails, you don't get any of this data that returns. I was sending emails. You don't know this very well. We were sending a couple thousand emails a month from a single inbox that were cold emails or part of a cold email sequence and all of a sudden, we realized that, hey, nobody's responding to our emails. Maybe there's a deliverability problem, but it turns out that problem started like months before. So we went about this the hard way. We realized that, oh my gosh, there is this dramatic drop off an email deliverability and that's when I started kicking and screaming and went to LinkedIn and found you and thank you for solving those problems. What should people like me be doing to not get caught in email jail and recognize when they're either acting badly or the spam.

"Aaron boone available after that. Okay all right very good. Good good to hear good to see. I'm curious to see what everybody has to say a little bit later today. Let's go to jeff in connecticut. What's up jeff. How're you doing is first time. Long time you jeff. what's up. Well i'm kinda on offense with boom. Because i mean you know. We can't be naive. We all know that bonus just basically a puppet that's going to do whatever the analytics department tells them to do. And he's just there to keep the peace with the players and players manager. And i i get that hitting coach. I wouldn't mind seeing them in tino martinez let him let him be the hitting coach. Maybe rand office third base coach man. Listen i know that nostalgia. Is there. And i know that's what you want. And you'd love to see some of these old yankees. Come back and be a part of a winning team. I don't know if that's the way it's going to go. I think that if you read some of the articles once phil nevin marcus. Tim's got fired. It was basically like they were going to get even more analytical like those guys were not analytical enough that those guys were too old school and then you're going to bring in you know even more older school guys probably not. I'm on by the way. I i'm i'm kinda getting i'm getting a little bit. Perturbed at this whole description of who the manager of the yankees is like. Oh yeah the puppet disease above that. I mean come on guys like this. This is a pressurized town. It's a pressurized situtation. It's one of the toughest angriest jobs i think. Joe torry we'll tell you that one of the toughest and greatest jobs that a person in sports could ever have. Because you really are. The face of the franchise. I don't care what anybody says you are. You're the one that has a franchise. Well i mean on the field. He is. But i'm just talking about your the one that is communicating the situation at hand in the moment whether it be a seventeen game winning streak or a thirteen game losing streak or somebody's getting injured or taken spider tack off the freaking baseball field and the bats are court. Jesus god i mean these guys are non. Stop questions and it's twice a day every single day during the season and they never get a break so the idea that this is just some babysitter. Worry for major league baseball team and that team happens to be. The yankees is ridiculous. Your i mean i. I wouldn't go as far as babysitter. But yeah i. I don't think that he does a ton. I really don mon- ge he does. I really don't do with our softball team. I don't magnify that by the way more. You do way more for the softball team. I think aaron boone does for the yankees. I just i really do believe he's there to make sure that the players are happy and he's never going to criticize a player and he's there to to deal with. I go dealing with most of yunan ego driven which is easy to manage. Because you just kind of fall into line. Because that's what guys do. You don't wanna have a maniac planet shortstop and you had to tell him where to stand and how to play the position and he would fight me because he's a go against the grain guy. That was tough. I can just imagine what that must be like when a guy's making one hundred million dollars and you got to go against the grain grain guy on your team a pain in the us. How many times it boone really like. It took forever for them to move gleyber torres. The second may evidence centers his call. That's the call again. Yeah but it's guess there's delivering message. Oh so what. I mean delivering the message. Does that mean like you know the postal workers. Also the tax bill guy like now like you. Just don't kill the mess. Yeah you you can't say that he's the manager. He's the one that has the daily responsibility of talking to the players. General manager very rarely ever talks the player. Sometimes the general manager talks to the agent. Of course that's that part of the the mechanism. And i'm sure that brian cashman called up gleyber towards agents. Look man. you guys suck at shortstop we're going to move on the second base. Just get ready for it. But then. Aaron boone's go say labor. Look you're struggling a little bit of shortstop want you to get back to being comfortable again. Not only in the field but at the plate. And he's the one that's got to deliver their message. You act like that's easy. Let's go to chris in the bronx. What's up chris. Morning guys. thanks for taking the call. I just think he didn't. He's not doing even the minimum that he's broadened for. If we're not gonna pay them for analytics you know. We're going to say those. As soon as i made above him. Then you have to blame for the development of the players you know. Cashman did what he could he give him a roster of all stars and future all stars. You know what. I'm talking about towards and gary sanchez. But he seems to not have the ear the room. He can't get these guys to stay who they were. You know i mean. I'm not second to teach them how to hit consistent but for some reason they were totally turn to too much under. Hey i mean and that's a big difference between where the red sox are now where the yankees are. Now is denver's progressing bogart's progressing and sanchez and clever towards at the wrong position. We all found that out. It's not like and by the way they have spring training. They worked on things and spring training. It's not like they. Have you know five weeks in the middle of the season to practice everything. Eventually you gotta get to the season. Yeah you take some ground balls you take some bad. Bp you're doing what all the fundamentals are doing the gym work and all that other stuff but at the end of the day it's either you had the baseball abilities and i q to become one of the best players at that position or you don't and it took a year and a half almost a year and a half for them to realize that glacier torres was a defensive liability and it was also affecting his hitting and by the way remember injuries also caused them to put stanton out in my field and when they put stanton outlet field he became a real baseball player again. Yeah no it wasn't like some fat ass sitting on the on the bench and getting up and hitting every four four times. yeah well. he's never a fatty athlete. The guys in athlete and should be playing sure each the morning show with woomera science and in gregg giannotti boomer in g. o. Haven't heard yet arid is coming back on a three year deal option for a fourth waited for a long time. Sounds like to me like he had some sort of leverage to be able to get a three year. Deal but aaron. Boone is back as manager of the yankees will be a press conference a little bit later today. Jerry you're surprised at three year deal. I was yes. I absolutely thought he was coming back. But i thought it'd be like you know to not an option for a fourth live. You remember initially we said you know deal would be kind of like a medium type deal. Yeah but then. All of a sudden on these other jobs opened up. You know mike. Shell gets fired and say louis surprisingly and then of course san diego fires their manager so you have two openings right there. I would say that he would be the perfect guy for either one of those teams and then that kind of changes the dynamic certainly could have been and maybe he now gets a little bit of leverage because those openings and quite frankly. I'm not a yankee fan. People no but i have no disdain for ambuhl. It's not like i think you know. I think he's lost them games or something like that. I think it was more on the players. anything else. yeah i mean. I don't have any disdain for me either. I just don't think that it really does much. I just don't think did the the the type of manager. Brian cashman wants is aaron. Boone and this is the stuff that he's he's going to do. Aaron boone stuff well. Let's let's brian cashman. Does what the roster that. That's really where the next two months for yankee fans you've got to focus in to see what he's doing with the roster. He could move every health. Go get korea. They'll get seger. You know go online. Rizzo.

I'm just questioning got to learn how to play cover one. I gotta learn how to learn. Checks i gotta learn blitzes. You gotta learn how to catch kick. Yes that's in cake. Can't do this with the chiefs on the other side. Remind me. I used to cover the yankees joe. Torry derek jeter yankees. It'd be losing a playoff game by four runs. Somebody make an error and all of a sudden they'd be like six. And that's jesus drops the ball in the chiefs like yeah. This is great. May maybe they were actually something more to it. Than that. And i'll use golf is in analogy. People would tend to just make mistakes when tiger woods was involved and he just adds an element of pressure. Is it possible. I'm not trying to defend the country. You've got to catch the snap. Obviously but there is an element of we know. We can't make any mistakes. We have to be so perfect. We have to be even better. We normally are because mahomes is on the other side that causes some of those. I would agree with that for the op. The opposition offense right look. We used to feel pressure as high powered offense that if that offense on the other side was playing well we had two matches so that gives you anxiety that is true but a planner giving you that. Excuse for i mean it's like i mean for real man i mean that's it easier i could. I'm just telling you. If i'm a breath i would've lost mama. Just cannot have that again. The margin for areas. The chiefs is zero. We all understand that because of mahomes. But they had them. They had them and literally gave it away saying all drive shorter. Because it's not like you always stop them dirty. I just got it. Got it back to the gonna stop patrick. Behold patrick mos in the punter ted had he said that it would have been the greater soundbite is in. And that's an overreaction..

Eight seven seven three. Dp show email address dp. Dan patrick dot com twitter handle. Atp show this weekend. We can expect sports to be a focal point of the nation as we mark the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven and of course nothing about that terrible day is a sports story but sports played a really significant role in the nation bringing us back together and there was a lot of debate on. When should the sports come back and when they did. The games captured the spirit of the country. And i remember president george w bush throwing out the first pitch at the world series in new york. Everybody cheered teams players. Honored the heroes. Who tried to help people that day on nine eleven and fans were given the chance to remember and cheer like we wanted to get back together and cheer and have something positive. The mets and yankees will play on sunday with nypd. Ny fd written on their uniforms. Nfl teams will present video tributes before the games and i know games. Don't matter with an such an important date but they really do because they were really important. Part of helping the nation. He'll on one of the saddest days in our history. Joe torry the hall of famer. Mlb special assistant to the commissioner and won four world series titles was the yankees with the yankees and he was there that night and joe joins us now.

I mean you scared you're mad And just a nine eleven was Was such a tough day. I didn't even that. Tv on the. I was scheduled to do a charity luncheon. That day and i was just getting myself ready in my bedroom and a car service called me and said well. I guess it's canceled may. So what are you talking about and.

"Some twenty years ago. Three hundred forty four firefighters at passed away and were killed and over seventy law enforcement officials were killed not only from the nypd but the p ems worker. You name it. I mean it's just a horrific time in our country. We all know that here. We are twenty years later and my personal connection to the north tower is significant. We were in Cantor fitzgerald offices on the hundred and first floor Howard let nick and cantor fitzgerald hosted us at no cost to our foundation. Got our fledgling foundation off the ground because of all of that support and that day lost my great friend. Timmy o'brien who was my first board member of my foundation and over. I don't know one hundred fifty to two hundred other friends and supporters of our foundation. Because we like. I said we were on the first floor in that plane. Went in right below that floor and anybody above that had no chance of survival and i think about the images that day i think about all the things that have happened over the last twenty years in how our world changed how we changed and how it impacted so many people's lives from the people that died that day to the people who are continuing to die today because of the cancers that were suffered from from that attack and the aftermath of that to all of our goldstar families to our wounded warriors to everybody in between And it really is a sobering fact. When you think about it and i i will never forget. I know my kids will never forget I'm glad to report that. Most of the kids. That i know that lost their dad that day are doing really well doing really well and they are very aware of. What's going on you know when they were younger. Maybe it's the ages six seven eight nine. They didn't understand or comprehend but now they're bombarded with images and videos and everything else and even doing documentaries on their own and writing books about their experience. And i think that says a way for us to remember their their lost loved ones and i'll never forget coming back to new york about three days later. 'cause i was stuck in edinburgh monday night game and i went down to the site and i was with outback steakhouse and we were serving food to the men that were on those piles that were looking for any survivors. And i remember the gasps. I remember they're crying. I remember the smell. I remembered this. Just the absolute devastation nets. Sixteen acre area down there and it wasn't just the first two buildings that collapsed. I mean people tend to forget that one two three four five six seven world trade center buildings were either collapsing that day or had to be demolished because they were so significantly damaged because of the towers collapsed initially all had to be rebuilt and we have a constant reminder when we walk out of our building. We'll look to the right now. We say we see the freedom tower tower that speaks to the inspiration of what this country's all about so. I wear the shirt proudly today. I'll always wear the shirt proudly. And i know that the f. d. n. y. Lost so many members that. I think it's the right thing for us to do. And if you wanna call it and talk about it we can of course We could talk about the great football game last night. We talk about the to bed. Baseball teams that we have now here locally getting ready to play a very significant weekend series that means more to us sports fans than just the games themselves of course and that's the really the reason why i'm going to tune in the mets. Of course i've been talking about how i don't believe that they've got any shot regardless of what the standings say in mathematically whatever it they don't have any shot to me it's about the honoring of the heroes and what sports played at that time and i mean some of my most vivid memories of sports come from post nine. Eleven september mets yankees jets giants. I remember what the patriots joe andruzzi coming out with the flag. I mean it's just vivid memories and to get back to Everything that we loved it was gonna take a long time but sports were there four us and i i mean the organizations were just fantastic. They did everything right at that. Time to support the city to support of the first responders. Bobby valentine joe torry on and on i mean they did apps body vassal. Jim boscell herm edwards. Herm edwards is one of the sea. I remember from the football i. Of course there's a fan. But i was covering football at the time and in football because the stadiums hold seventy five eighty thousand people and you saw it again last night right before the sort of game you know the the the memory of nine eleven and the national anthem and everything else and i like last night. I was thinking and you know twenty years ago. These sports brought us all back together. Like me became one us a nation and my what the hell is happening to us over the last twenty years. I don't wanna get political just a mad at so many other things that have gone on around all of this but i just what the hell is happened to us i. I felt like last night at least during the national anthem. I felt like there was a closeness again. Yeah i really did. And i and i really. I long for the days where we weren't at each other's throats for whatever. The reason may be a common enemy at that point. And it wasn't oss and now we are. We are fighting with one another as basically amazing to me. Yeah i mean and you know the the mantra has been and always should be to never forget and the event and the lives that were lost. Were never gonna forget but we have forgotten. I think collectively maybe not mean you. Maybe not are listening base but there have been a lot of people in this country that have forgotten about who we were right after those attacks which was a unified front as a nation. And i mean that was the only good thing to have come out of that. Was that where there was. Y- you dropped all beliefs and we were on the same. We're all we were. Yeah we were on the same team. We were americans. there was no at each other's throats. I'm not saying that you know. All disagreements or bad disagreements but it's gone to the point now where we are so far away and we're so contentious and you don't want another big thing to happen for us to be able to get back on. no. I think we're contentious because we do have a faction on each side. That is extreme in those extreme points of view are pushing You know most of us who are reasonable and practical. An independent thinkers Can make a decision about a certain thing and see it as a practical reason why to do something. As opposed to a political reason as to why do something and and a photo op and picture you know is just is just so demeaning and so disheartening and just so infuriating as opposed to the real stuff that's going on and it's just because it's all because of politics so i i don't know i don't know what to tell you other than i did last night. I i kind of felt a little bit of that. Come together moment especially through sports. You not everybody's sports in the world. But i do know that back then if it weren't for the sports at least for those of us who are sports fans. I don't necessarily know that we could have gotten back. And i from the world series with the yankees in diamond bounce to the monday night. Football games that i was doing to see how fans are reacting at every monday. Night game in. How proudly.

"torry" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Pk steinberg rightsin. If the yankee search continues nine hundred and nine since the all-star break and they make the playoffs does aaron. Boone get serious consideration for manager of the year in the al. I'd i don't think he will. It would be kinda funny. I i do think it's funny because early near the conversation was whether or not his job was in trouble and then you have a month of games and all of a sudden you're right i mean there would be people saying would he be managed. The i still think tony larussa is gonna get consideration over him. And i also think that it's an advantage to be a small market manager It's very rare actually in the last. I can't remember how many times joe torry won manager of the year. But maybe wants if it if at all because the yankees were always a team with the big payroll and i think that always works as a disadvantage against their managers. That is a good point. Andrew stout is up next at thomas. Ac stout andrew writes in and we spent a couple of weeks. Speculating who the nl mvp would be since. Tattoos has missed so much time but did all that speculation. Just go out the window and andrew included a video of isa's to homerun sunday. Maybe maybe yeah. I think it'd be productive down the stretch that he's gonna wind up winning the mvp of the nationally. Because i think he had an advantage over the fe- ild when he got hurt The only question was whether or not he was going to come back and he has come back and less he completely collapses down the stretch. I think he's going to win it at this point and If if you're wondering if the days you know standing in the nationally race has anything to do with this. I think the padres can miss the playoffs tat. Tease junior could still win the mvp. All brian stone king is up next app. Rhinestone king slash school of sweat. Brian writes in. If the orioles are clearly tanking not trying to hide it. Why wouldn't they keep running. Chris davis out there instead of eating. All of his money. Definitely contributes to the philosophy. Well they've had a coup- keep in mind. They've had a couple of first baseman that they filled in that they are trying to develop. It's not like every in every game the padres or excuse me. The orioles are just trying to run out the very worst players. They just generally designed team. That was going to fail in chris. Davis is someone pointed out to me. The other day has been worth more to the orioles on the injured list and he has been plying you put him on. The list can recoup a lot of money through insurance right. So is better. It was better for them that he was on the injured list and then collecting insurance and they're tanking but i feel like it would be insulting to the players on the field to include him as well. Let's and this definitely reflects your perspective in his as an orioles fan. That's for sure. Yeah absolutely last one for today. Christopher savage savage and beasts christopher rates and hey buster your questions. For the sunday night baseball players are very specific to each player. What is your secret or is it just good investigative research so i definitely dig into their pass. You don't want to just ask them. You know what's it like. You know if you have a surge in recent weeks tell me about You know you're hitting you very specific things to talk In their interest Their upbringing that sort of thing. So you call the agents. You know you call a former teammate. You'll call somebody who's been a friend You know maybe. He talked to his spouse. But you're getting a lot of inside information and there've been times when i've done those interviews started off like hey just a just a heads up you know. I talked to your high school coach. I talked to your wife. So i i actually think that makes them more comfortable so when you bring up things that surprise them like the other day for example when i talk to trade journal see i hear you love to talk about the stock market than not so jarring that That they feel invaded. If that makes sense those interviews are always great. And that's why. Play here on the podcasts. On mondays for whatever reason you're unfamiliar we always run.

"Just are golf. I saw it with david. Duval ian baker finch. You see great players. Kampot greg norman at the masters you see it. But it's dangerous in gymnastics and my wife up a good point she goes. What if that happened in downhill scheme. And i'm like you could die like downhill skiers. I don't know what they're going. One hundred twenty miles an hour or whatever they're going when you watch a lot of these athletes uneven bars downhill skiing so much of this as confidence. Don't give you a great example. A rod is probably as talented as any baseball player in ten years. Just to sick talent a rod. The game got into his head so much. In the playhouse one year against detroit joe torry dropped into in the batting order and everybody thinks these guys have all this confidence in the world. We watch ben. Simmons terrified shoot. We watched lebron james against the dallas mavericks literally for the only time in his career. Lebron admitted it. He didn't want to be on the floor. He did not want the basketball. So i don't want to hear the main thing. Michael phelps talk suicide when you're talking about precision sports representing the country in these hollow arenas with no fans this year across the globe. I am shocked. We do not see more young men and women struggle with this. i shock. We had to get tested three days a week to come in and do our jobs where we sit on our. That's all day in talk sports. And i've got a heated blanket and coffee as stressful. It wears on you these these these protocols and constantly having to go through all these extra loops and hoops to do your job on top of what is already an extremely stressful situation for these. I think about this all the people all the tough guys We're having a hundred incidents a day on american airlines of people losing their mind on flights because they have to wear a mask. Yeah so nothing about that. We've had. I think it's the number is like thirty six hundred incidents where you've had to kick people forever off planes for wearing a mask so if you don't think the the struggles of the pandemic and the pressure if you don't think that's fatiguing and daunting just not paying attention to yourself. How many years could apparent home school their kids. I mean i know parents are well adjusted are like if i have to do that again. Yes forty five year old people. Yeah it's a massive adjustment for people. This the whole world is going through this incredible stress we got. We got to put her arms around the people struggling at time laying. Tough guys so dak prescott left cowboys practice early. Yesterday with soreness in his throwing arm and emory revealed he has a muscle strain in his right shoulder so he'll be treated in further evaluated on a day to day basis. The team is not worried about it. Being a long-term setback and decided to be cautious and smart about it and he expects to be fine. The little concerning coming into camp Nothing too crazy. Obviously they're not saying it's long term but you know. We saw what happened when i was out last year. I thought about this. I may be. I'm not a doctor. But because of the foot injury was he becoming more of an armed thrower. Yeah you know. Years and years ago. I had a groin pull and might golic came up to me. And he said you will pull the other side within a week. Because you'll overcompensate damn if he wasn't right you generally you overwork other body parts especially if you're not able to use your legs like this. It's not terribly surprising. Yes the only thing he's been able to do for the most part is stand around and throw so the first thing i thought at least play overcompensating for a little bit of the injury downstairs. That's good stuff. Join the news. Well that's the news. And thanks for stopping heard. Lie to bring in peter king football morning in america. Nbc sports dot com pro. Football hall of fame selection committee brought to you by mercedes benz the best or nothing. So listen the whole aaron rodgers thing. Yesterday it was fascinating. I loved it. It was you know. I'm in the content business. It was found fascinating content. I did bristle a little at the twelve guys. He labeled as mistakes by the packers. And i thought okay mic to hide casey hayward you have an argument. I'm not but nobody's seeking perfection in this league. I don't think green bay been poorly run under errands watch. That's my worldview on that. Peter your thoughts about him naming multiple players. He thought the packers didn't treat. Well i mean. Are there many veterans colin. Who don't stick up for veterans and who I mean that's the mark of a good teammate. But it's not necessarily the mark of a good man to manage your franchise. And and look. But i i find myself this morning. Steve young out a tweet. That was fantastic. What why in the world wouldn't you just talk to aaron rodgers. y what is. What's what's wrong with having a conversation with them once a week. What's wrong with. Brian gouda insane. Hey every friday. Two o'clock wednesday at four o'clock. Aren't you just stop by. And let's have a conversation. Why not do that. And everybody will say well because then the players don't run the team. Then why wouldn't david bahktiar get fifteen minutes with him. And all that and and i get it. I totally get it. We're talking about a special circumstance and a special player the mvp of the national football league and to say that. We're not going to do it. Because ron woolfe didn't do it. This way is not a good reason to not do it. You know i i. I've said this if if you're going to get a divorce man woman boyfriend girlfriend whatever. It is football quarterback. Gm and you know it's going to come to a conclusion in a year and you decide. Let's just make it work for a year. Peter there's going to be resentment the minute there's a struggle there's finger pointing. I feel like the whole year is going to feel a little bit. Like kevin durant in the warriors where they knew he was leaving and everybody kind of walked on eggshells. They didn't want to offend him now. They were still a very good team. But i just have a hard time thinking this next twelve months or nine months whatever. It is won't be a little awkward. I mean you've covered this league forever. I have you ever had a situation like like this before. Not not really i mean maybe in in in the mind of general manager of a co or a coach she fell. Honestly that if it's over and we gotta make it work for one more year but when it's out in public that it's probably over that's different animal that we really haven't seen but kala. I guess my point would be that. This is aaron rodgers. Were talking about. And the difference between aaron rodgers with a potential distraction and jordan love. I'll take aaron rodgers. And i'll risk distraction by the way you have a projection on how it ends. I mean it's not the easiest schedule you know. They face the nfc west and the afc north. So they have a gauntlet in middle of ladakh late september. Starting with the niners week three through week twelve. It's seahawks at kansas city. It's a real schedule here. Peter it this is not going to be without flaws. Do you have a sense on this. Gotta end holland. That's that's one of the reasons. Why would you want a team with aaron rodgers and maybe questions being asked about his future all the time playing that schedule or one jordan. Love playing that schedule and look jordan loves the unknown. I'm not being critical of jordan. Love i don't know no one knows. But i certainly rather have aaron rodgers playing that schedule under.

"Of Hank Aaron, hitting the home run that put him over the record that had previously been held. Bye. Babe Ruth, the legendary Hank Aaron died today. He was 86 years old. John Shea is joining us. John Shea is his national baseball writer for the San Francisco Chronicle. He also is the author of 24 Life stories and Lessons from the Say. Hey, kid, John, Thanks so much for being with us today. I've had my pleasure. So tell us the story first about his tying Babe Ruth's record, not not when he beat it. But when he tied it, because there was controversy at that time I understand between the Braves ownership in the baseball Commissioner Kun tell us what happened and then tap what happened when he hit 7 14. Well, it was at the end of the season and there was some friction anyway. I mean, bully kun, the commissioner at the time was, um You know, maybe distanced from the reality of the record, and he actually wasn't there when it was broken of all things, But but, I mean, it was so hard on Hank Aziz. We know now and maybe didn't know when I was a kid watching all this wonderful history that He was just flooded, You know, by hate mail and death threats and all the Racists wherever he went on African American from the deep South Jim Crow era. Rising to power and Breaking this record set by a white man who played on Lee against whites. You know the great Babe Ruth and looked at as a king a guy then you know who's Hank? Aaron? Well, take care and broke the record fairly and squarely and it not only I mean, obviously, along the way He opened eyes and change minds and made people aware of You know the struggles and the struggles he went through, You know, no man should have to go through mean We know all about Jackie Robinson. But all those years later It was bad for Hank to because you know his his. His teammate and former Giants manager, Dusty Baker was on deck that day, and he tells stories about how How tough it was and how the young players on the team tried to gather around and support him. But it was amazing history and that call you just played of Vin Scully. If you play it up some more. It's an amazing Call, maybe his best, and that's hard to say, because All those decades behind the mike. But when he spoke about a standing So record of an all time baseball idol. I mean, it brought It still does bring chills, Theo listeners. How long does sending ovation lasted for like 11 minutes, didn't it? Yeah, And the beauty of then was that he just You know, just just stop talking. And then when he did, um You know, spoke that he described the moment in real time like nobody could write years later. He was that good, But the beauty of then was always kind of stepping aside and letting the crowds in the moment speak for itself. But his words Were amazing. Um, the racism, the threats. It really hurt him. Um, he told a New York Times Sports Reporter reporter in that April 8th 1974 and in his words, he said, it really led up to turning me off baseball. But he said, it really made me sad for the first time, a clear picture of what this country is all about. My kids had to live like they were in prison because of kidnap threats. And I had to live like a pig in a slaughter camp. I had to duck I had to go out the back door. Ballparks. I had to have a police escort with me all the time. I was getting threatening letters every single day. All of these things have put a bad taste in my mouth and it won't go away. They carved a piece of my heart away. You know, when I read that I thought about the Reverend Martin Luther King and how we have lionized him. How we talk about what a great American hero he Woz. Hank Aaron Muhammed Ali, Willie Mays. That's the way we talk about them today, but back in the day when they were on top. When we should have been lauding them for the achievements that they were making. They were derided they were threatened. They were hated by a large portion of the American population. And it's not that long ago. And the amazing thing isn't that they hit all those home runs. The amazing thing is that they overcame that and Need the biggest and wouldn't let the racist win and changed the course of history. And it's stuff that Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle and Joe the module never had to experience. For all they had to overcome. It didn't it didn't come close to what Jackie and Maize and Aaron and banks and You go down the list of all the people who played And this goes back to the Negro leagues that cool proper bells and Josh Gibson's and folks who never even got a chance to play in the majors. That's how bad it was for them. It was ridiculous by any standards, but The thing has you? You mentioned that Hank Aaron quotas, powerful stuff. But while you recited it, I I remembered this interview I did with Hank. For the sake of the Willie Mays book 24 that came out last spring. And will unite devoted a whole chapter in the book to Hank. And you're right, Hank. That was not. That was not the peak of Hank's career. And I said, What is, he said? Well, the peak is getting to the Hall of Fame. Exhale and to be among the greats and to be rewarded for what I did on. I did a right and obviously all these years later, you know, Barry Bonds broke the record and People look at it as tainted and that the real record well, it is the real record because it says so in the stats book, but But, hey, you know, way we're all told that you know, he did it right. He did it on the up and up and more than that, he did it with dignity and style and grace. Humility and character, and he's one of the all time American heroes in my book. Yeah, on, but he was inducted into the Hall of Fame, He said, Um It was he said, Uh, now I think I'm appreciated. I never wanted them to forget Babe Ruth. I just wanted them to remember Henry Aaron and the Hall of Fame. Did that for him. It finally gave him that. And thank God. Thank God. It did. So, John, What? Woz, Um Henry Aaron Hank Aaron relationship to Willie Mays. That's a good question, because throughout time when I was a kid when I grew up reading about him when I grow up talking with him, all I heard was wasn't a great relationship. So I said, Okay. Of that, Um, let's talk to the people who know him Best, you know. Filipe Alou played six years with Hank. Six years with Willie. Dusty Baker hung out with Willie as he managed the Giants but played with Hank. Joe Torry grew up idolizing the New York Giants and maize and played with With with Hank and, you know, so I talked to the people. You know Joe Morgan, who was a great friend of both, Um Nobody. You know, nobody said anything about a negative relationship, which was portrayed over the years, um by the media or by fans. And there are some cases in the Howard Bryant book. The last hero, which came out a couple of years ago. The definitive take Erin biography and I Love Howard. But I told him I said, Listen, I'm going to bring all this stuff to hang him to bring all this stuff to Willie. Mm hmm..

"Be real. That did that did. Come out of nowhere to to a certain extent so i i do think george binghamton and what he is as an nhl goal. Let's say for the next five years. I do think that's still a bit of an unknown. I mean you know he can be really really good but also goaltending is so weird in the nhl. You see guys who are great and they fall off a bit. You see guys who are onto contracts. Like a brian elliott all of a sudden become an all star. So i do think what would jordan venison can do the next five years or something. I'm i'm looking at it. And that's why they signed him to that two year bridge contract because he wasn't this established guy that i put up side seasons of great numbers. He had one unbelievable season. That everybody in saint louis will never forget but also can you give a guy a five or six years huge contract after a fifty game regular season a really great two months of the of the post seat so you know he also has to prove it to get his big deal. But it's hard to take you set the bar so high Torry holt's talked about this just in terms of the team. He was a rookie. Ninety nine in the rams. Have this incredible run win the super bowl and he's like you know from a team standpoint this kind of that's hard to match and forbidding as a rookie year like the story of the league. It's almost it's cool. Everybody would take it a thousand times. You would want that on your resume too but you know what i'm saying. He'll always be compared to himself. And it's almost impossible to live up to that standard absolutely and you know what i'm distracted right now because i'm so mad at myself because i'm looking at one guzman and you're absolutely right and sixty six everywhere and i see joe carter twenty nine. And that's why. When roger clemens said that i.

Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.
Is the GOP more united than ever because of the impeachment probe?
"This irregular channel of diplomacy. It's not as outlandish as it could be. Is that correct. It's not as outlander says it could be. I might be irregular but it certainly not outlandish. There's a phrase that pays. That was one argument. The Republican Council tried to make in that effort to defend the president from impeachment. You can judge its effectiveness for yourself with US tonight to talk about all things. Political veteran journalist Jason Johnson politics editor at the root and Rick Wilson Republican what can strategist soon to be following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with his new work running against the devil due out in early. Twenty Twenty Gentlemen. Welcome to you both Rick. The president said tonight Republicans have never been more united. Is that what you saw watching the hearing yesterday. Look I think what I saw watching here. Yesterday was Republicans who were in a state of of edgy panic and they were trying to talk faster and louder in hopes of trying to pass the fact that those two witnesses stood on the sat there and laid out a timeline a calendar additional facts additional witnesses. This is this was not a good day for those folks and no matter how many times Jimbo baggins gets up there and dances around like a crazy little leprechaun. It's not gonNA shake the the fact that the facts are against Donald Trump and the and the timeline is donald trump at the witnesses against donald trump. And this that was day one. They had a bad day on day want. I don't think it's going to get much better as we go forward. Jason the Democrats we with day one in the books we have learned. They can schedule witnesses and conduct question tonight. Yes when will you have confirmation that they evan deed found the right messaging that with all we have lived through with muller color. Four hundred plus pages. This is the story to tell this story. People can understand because at the heart of it is a phone. So this is we're gonNA find over the next couple of days if Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are joe torry if they're good managers if they can set up the lineup properly with the witnesses and I think they did a good job. Look this first day you had two people who as you said. They set the time line. They were very clear. They weren't fuss flustered. They didn't allow Jim Jordan or anybody else to ask them any sort of strange questions that got them off the line And I think the Republicans they weren't unified didn't seem to have a coherent strategy other than do you follow all the conspiracy theories that we know about on read it so I think the Democrats effective very very good job. This is GonNa be a knockout punch situation. That's not what's going to happen. What they need to do is not screw up? Lay out the story because the American public already seems to be in favor of impeachment. They just don't WanNa blow that sort of enthusiasm but let me follow up on that. Do you think this hearsay line of argument is catching on and do you think it has has a time limit on. I don't think here's a works because you've got too many people talking about the same story right. It doesn't look everybody out there who's watching this. The people who are at home my grandmother grandparents everything else like that. They've watch law and order they different sweet hearsay in seems like a credible witness and these people come across as credible until someone blows up until someone someone has that Sam Watterson moment where they get angry on the stage. Everyone watching this right now is when they say well. These people seem credible. We've been hearing about the story. And so far. The Republicans haven't given there's an alternative story to think that this impeachment doesn't make sense and that's really the weakness I saw on Tuesday. Rick I have something for you. This is Nikki Haley tonight on CNN on the topic. Uh of Rudy Giuliani. Was it appropriate based on everything you experience in the world of diplomacy for Rudy Giuliani. The president's personal crystal lawyer someone who had no security clearances to be engaged in what's being described as the shadow diplomacy. I had during my time at the United. The nation's I never saw rudy engaged in that way it is best practice if you have a special envoy to handle certain areas and we do that all the time yeah I think they should've named him the special envoy so that everyone within the administration knew what his role was so instead of former mayor. Of New York's special l'envoi envoy Rudy. Giuliani Rick is that the rosiest possible. Reading of the situation Rudy is in question to what is going on. Do you think was Nikki Haley. I think Nikki's missing one of those profound rules in life. The rats are supposed to jump off of the sinking ship rather than on the a sinking ship. And so tonight. She gambled more credibility away by essentially essentially putting your arms around Rudy Giuliani. A guy who is already being dragged out behind the barn. Because they're done with him. The trump people are trying to cut in loose. The Republicans in Congress are going to try to blame this whole thing. Hang on Rudy when it comes down to it. That's their last-ditch scenario and so now she's basically praising Rudy at a moment where his stock has fallen so far with trump personally with with the trump world that it's only a matter of time before he was just a coffee boy volunteer. We barely knew him rudy. Who Jason Ivanovich tomorrow? Tomorrow give us a bit of a preview. We tried to point out the top of the broadcast. We recall ambassadors all the time. Rarely do they say they feel threatened in their personal lives. Rarely does one of the locals say to them. Watch your back when when she's saying I felt threatened. I don't even know why the president was talking about. I mean this is going to be the emotional punch. Got The story I. Now we're hearing people felt threatened. People feel concerned people in the country in the Ukraine. Were like we don't even know what's going on. What's it's dangerous here? And this is where Raju Liani and all these other individuals come into play. It doesn't matter if he was named special envoy. You don't put your ankle breaker on staff right soon. Everyone knew that trump had a lot of people operating in these sort of irregular channels and she speaks to how those irregular channels made regular long-term service. People feel uncomfortable. No and that's going to be the story that Americans take with them over the
