"Would be to be in the hall of fame it's probably even more difficult to have the support of the other owners I'm the only thing I could see is that they're desperate and they're no other viable candidates to to buy the team my suggestion of course is that my money is that Mike Bloomberg has fifty five billion dollars what's another to be what's do billion he can see what's running where he ran for about a month right and that was that was a much bigger waste of money but from everything I hear he's been asked and he's told everybody that it just doesn't really interested means in the seventies and you know his children not that interested so he's not going to do is not giving up hope that we'll find somebody like that dissing is about about no offense to mayor Bloomberg but if he's not interested in baseball I wouldn't want his arm twisted to buy a baseball team because then it's not as if you'd be sitting there saying what we got to spend some money away that's he doesn't care and that's his prerogative you doesn't have to care about but it is sunny movie Betts what's that's nothing for something someone else's money the reason he became a billionaire is because he takes it seriously is not gonna throw a billion dollars away just because Hey I've got plenty of them you know I don't know I guess this is where we you and I are billionaires you know if if it were me I would take the team and try to win is the easy that say federal three billion players to guarantee the win I understand that that's what I would do but I don't know we don't have three billion five fifty billion dollars you damn right it's been seven billion of it just make the metal winner I want everybody there will be a but I'm not a billionaire indoors Michael Bloomberg made were very very different people like different people you'd rather wasted running for getting debates that he loses and that's it I was a bill that was that was a billion dollars he was happy with that billion to debate if he's the owner of the met's Emmy maybe because I'm a talk show once in awhile but that's it right I know I I mean I don't know I see all these things there's no way rob them will try to buy the Marlins you try he said some of the post I would buy him for a billion I mean let's be serious here I mean if the team was going to be sold for two point six billion valuation you know they're going to get for around two billion dollars or more for the team that has been it's not by then I could do a fire sale I I don't believe that I mean you know there might be some pressure years all caps the uncles one third owner approximately would like to sell you hear you wonder about the the real estate business right now with the cold it's actuation maybe that puts a little pressure on them and made off thing did not obviously but yeah I still don't see the Mets selling for much under two dollars and you obviously know how met fans feel about the wheel ponds they want I do we certainly want new ownership had is the commissioner and the rest of the owners feel about it today do they care as much are they hoping that there's a new owner quickly what's kind of their field right well right now it's on a plate of making sure we have the seasonal yeah measure and the and the other owners but I I I don't think the will plans are unpopular among the other owners initially had a popular with the commissioner and the commissioner was voted in and will bonds were one of the supporters of the commissioner and they were very close with but she only was the mentor of rob Manfred didn't you know I know they have and one of as many games as you like but you know I I don't I you know you you're gonna get on me about this but I really haven't been embarrassing ownership I don't think I've been like Dolan or something like that I mean is they they do seven one as much as you like they did get the World Series in two thousand fifteen that's been up and down but it you know with the New York team we do expect more I will I will agree with that but if they're not if there's no pressure that was your question no Roger from other owners or the commissioner for him to sell I mean they've generally been no you know they won some and lost some and they haven't called as many headaches as some other teams as I'm I'm not gonna fight with you today today it is not and as a fan they are New York team is only of not one is much is we would hope and they certainly in the in the in the last since the made off they haven't spent alike you liked thanks that's fair to say the big spenders the Santana was a year before made off the piazza was almost a decade before made off so in recent years they've they have taken the less expensive route as you as you say the Jason bay instead a holiday and passed on many others would like I do think they will correct not to go for Manny Machado that that that would have been three hundred million dollars not well spent but listen listen we're talking to John him now let's go to the toy store all right let's talk about things that are fun they have a plan for the playoff format we know they're going to add extra playoff teams but I got a lot of questions about it such as if you're only facing teams inside your division and the other leagues division shouldn't there be an equal amount of teams from each division making the playoffs questions like that do you know if baseball is sorted out their postseason plan yet they haven't told me but it's not gonna be equal number of teams from each division because it's gonna be seven teams from each league hi John I understand it but let me counter that you're right I totally get that but I would still say there needs to be at least two from each division so to to that get one wild card that makes sense to me out that's what I wanted to inquire and I'll get back to you when I get an answer on that thank you I don't know that does make sense to me just to make sense the menu that doesn't mean that's where they're going to do it but maybe they'd be foolish not to because if they're only playing your division obvious strength of each division is a little bit different so you'd be giving an advantage to a team it's in a bad division that's what to me it's gonna be two two two yeah and then number nine you get that the seventeen could be a lot of fun and it's going to be in equities the the the the these teams are gonna play each other so right presumably the NL east your your division they're gonna play ale not presumably they're gonna play at least a lot and that's tougher than the other so yeah there are inequities but you can even add a little bit in each division you're correct I I do I think your your plan for our I think you yeah I don't even mean it via the interlinks advice okay the Milwaukee Brewers the Milwaukee brewers are completing for a competing for a playoff spot with the Washington nationals and the neither team please any of the same teams think about that they don't play any of the same thing I mean their inequities now and we we like that though John fair enough thank you thank I think about it as fair as possible now you know I mean it's the players want to stretch it out two hundred games two hundred twenty games and you know that might be in a wayfarer but I I you know I'm not sure there's time for that so let's just say they play the eighty games you know it's it's probably let you still have a good team when it's going to be hard to believe that you get through eighty two games and then several rounds of playoffs next round four rounds of playoffs and I have a good team win but you you you're going to have less chance that the best team wins here than you would with over a hundred sixty two game schedule it's not even you know when I look at a little bit differently it's not the fewer regular season games it's the more playoff teams the the fact look once you're in the playoffs anything can happen now the best team doesn't necessarily we've seen that a lot of the hottest team so if you're putting that seven fifteen men no matter who it is they got a shot I mean they get hot at the right time to win a World Series so to me it's not even the regular season's going one sixty two to eighty the extra playoff teams yeah yeah the six M. a seventeen or is it to team so yes I think you're right so we may see a team that's in the medal winning it's possible we have a three win team went in I believe it's two thousand six right because so yes it happens you know hopefully you know I'm sure a good team will work to to get through even eighty two games and then several rounds of playoffs would be unlikely to see a team it below five hundred win but it would be possible right you could be the fourteenth best team and have eighty went from forty in Fargo fourteen forty two it's possible theoretically I know this may not work for you but you know what really works for me for the eighty two game season yeah N. B.
