"I tried to make sensitive sensation and the reason of course we think of who is black. Magic is because haiti was the only independent black nation for one hundred years at it. Bought shipments of america of slaves the american slave market and granted them freedom. It's funded simone boulevard on the condition that he free the slaves and grand columbia and the us marine corps occupied haiti in the nineteen twenties. And everybody about the rank of sergeant got a book contract and these were mostly marines from the american south during the era of jim crow and the books had names like cannibal cousins black baghdad. Blue fire in haiti. the magic. the white king. Lago nov a puritan voodoo land. There are dozens of these books all filled with pins and needles voodoo dolls. Don't exist children bread for the cauldron zombies crawling out of the grave to attack people and and they gave rise to the movies of the nineteen forties night of the living dead and they essentially said to the american people that any country were such a bomb nations occurred could only find his redemption through military occupation. And all of it was utterly and totally false. So that book was an attempt to to reveal the beauty of the african spiritual worldview. All of my books have had that kind of mission in the same sense that the the book magdalena river of dreams the latest one is is trying to present to the world through empathy and grace and love the true dimensions of a country. That in many quarters has been reduced to caricature utterly unjustly utterly unfairly and if people knew the true beauty and wonder- of columbia. They'd realize that the only danger of traveling to colombia is a distinct possibility that you will never wanna leave. You mentioned some similarities in in the sense that people migrants in columbia from venezuela colombia to venezuela Have something in common with the people. Here who are being chased out of their countries and their disenfranchised and they get treated as as lesser beings because of their essentially because of their circumstances. But do you draw any other parallels between the history of columbia and the history of certain countries in this part of the world. Well you know i. I don't have a great deal of experience in the middle east but of course traveled in egypt.
"We're all glad to have survived. Thousand twenty the change in the us administration suggests it may be time for a different tone in how americans work on the issues our country needs to tack. But are we up. For an essay on the unraveling of america an anthropologist. Wade davis wrote for rolling stone last august. Got people talking. He joins us now from his home near vancouver. Bc to explore. America's changing role in global politics is essay is sort of like a letter to a neighbor who needs a little tough love and that neighbor happens to be a canadian anthropologist. Wade thanks for joining us. My pleasure could be with you so you wrote an article. That apparently is the most widely read thing. Rolling stone has ever published. Will it hit a real nerve. Million people read it on the site. It trended number one for five weeks three hundred and sixty two million social media impressions within two months and my visitations to my wikipedia. Site soared from a modest one hundred fifty a day to over four thousand. Just hit this nerve wrecking a none of us expected that nervous like that Little quip that's going around on the internet suggesting that to live in candidate today is like owning an apartment above a meth lab. Robin williams. Actually your essays. You say. it's a love letter. But it's a love letter called the unraveling of your neighbor america. How is it a love letter. Well i think when you have someone you love and you do. A family intervention. The most important in the first thing have to do is hold a mirror chisholm to show how far they've fallen. Because that's the first step in the path of rehabilitation and. I think that things have happened so fast. In america that in a way people look in the mirror and they still see the myth of their on exceptionalism and they don't necessarily see how far things have changed and i think kovic revealed that you know it didn't cost the country to fall but revealed to what extent the country had fallen. And i think a lot of that's just about the nature of community and i think where canada's not perfect place but it is interesting to compare the consequences of covid in the two countries way. It's it's interesting because americans. I think we take up a little bit offence when somebody from country critiques us. But we're more likely to listen to canadians. And it's so helpful for somebody to remind us that the global view of america has changed a little bit. I mean people used to look at us differently than they do now well as a great reporter for the irish times you know. They've been many motions expressed about america's since world war two but one that has never been there is there now that was pity. And that was how the world saw america's frontline healthcare workers were waiting. The arrival of emergency supplies on air lists from china. It was almost like the hinge of history opened the asian century. Pity that's something new. Another thought that. I've had is. When i if i ever refer to america's as an empire people take offense to it but we're an empire to me and empires rise and empires fall. I'm a historian and and it's frustrating to me. How unable or unwilling americans are to realize. History may be speaking to us in your essay. You reminded us how empires come and empires go. Well no kingdom expects to fall and they all do you know historically if you think in european tradition. The fifteenth century belonged to the portuguese the sixteenth to the spanish to seventeen to the dutch. The eighteenth to the french and the the nineteenth to the british. The british empire actually reached its greatest geographical extent in nineteen thirty five. But we know of course that by the end of world war two empire was bankrupt and bled white in the torch had in fact passed to america. What clearly yeah. I mean if you look at the numbers after world war two we were so dominant and comfortable thinking. We're the last great superpower. But of course as you said look at what the past has taught us and i think pretty clearly right now. There's a changing of the the torch ever further westward in it and china is emerging as the next great superpower I mean i don't necessarily look forward to that moment with any kind of The light and i think if if and when we find out that this is the fading of the american era. I think we'll be very nostalgic for the best years of that era.

"Three first rounders four overall justin fields. Sean wade davis sean. Wade davis or late. First round picks chris alive as projected a second round pick is based on pro football focus grades right clemson s three trevor lawrence darin kendrick travis at notre dame only has two one in the first round one outside woo carmo with. I'm sorry the linebacker and then liam aiken berg is projected. Just outside the first round. Tackle that i love that. I've talked about all year. You'll get top. One hundred players bama has nine top one hundred players clemson state six notre dame to have said all along notre dame is the fourth of the bunch when it comes to talent now. They're playing outstanding they're tackling. Well the run games ridiculous. Their offense lines ridiculous but that is the greatest predictor of a national championship. Nfl talent. you can look at any other analytic you want. That's the greatest predictor right. There i told you so. Obama has thirty three percent. Chance better chance than clemson state of winning the national championship. They got thirty three percent. More top tier. Nfl players and people. Say what about gary wilson. There's young guys everyone is young guys. Trust me bama has young guys. that'll be first rounders. I promise next year in a year in two years so that that's the greatest predictor you look at the espn fbi chance to make the playoffs. Bam sitting at ninety eight percent likelihood. I don't know what the other one percent would be. I guess they lose this weekend and lose the florida. Maybe i don't know Obama's at ninety eight percent state is the second highest odds to make the playoffs at eighty five percent notre dame sixty one percent clemson forty nine and a half percent a enam thirty seven percent. Cincinnati twenty two percent. How about this. Indiana seventeen percent florida thirteen percent and then the undefeated usc trojans at twelve percent. Those are the only teams that double digit double digital. It's funny of note that right. Now the analytic say. Indiana has a better chance of making the playoffs in the florida. Gators very interesting right a side note though clemson has twice as good of a chance at winning it all as notre dame based on espn fbi. Clemson has a ten point three percent chance to win. The national title and notre dame has a five point two percent. It just goes to show you that the analytics don't always rely on head to head wins and losses. Because i mean they have a twice a chance. That's wild so i think the playoffs will be as follows. Obviously barring some bullshit. I think the rosebowl be ohio. State notre dame the dream of all dreams the sugarbowl obama clemson. And you talk about. I mean this is a rematch. The the regional i guess. Blue buds and legends legendary teams notre dame ohio state. Play in the rose bowl. Bama clemson in the sugar bowl winner plays in south beach for the natty. Ohio state alabama is my prediction. But i was looking through the the bull matchups. And there's some interesting matchup projections right one of the projections. I saw have had a peach bowl. Cincinnati georgia would be an awesome bowl. Game down elena. The orange bowl miami florida you talk about a a heated heated game going back to week zero when i went down with the big three. Roll up down to orlando at their tailgate. I might have to check that out again. Shut big three. Roll up miami florida and the orange bowl. Fiesta bowl indiana indiana..

We think we're the norm when we're the exception where the anomaly the Triumph of secular materialism maybe the concede among their wage but its ubiquity doesn't imply that it's the norm. It's the anomaly and it comes from a very specific place in our Western tradition to liberate ourselves intellectually Faith journey of absolute faith in the Renaissance and into the enlightenment, we throughout all Notions of myth magic and mysticism and metaphor to the extent that the card said that all that existed was mind and material and as Saul Bellow said in times science made I was cleaning of belief and the idea that the mounting could be a deity or the flight of a bird could have meaning was wrong.

It's a pile of rock ready to be mind a forest isn't the above who can the crooked because heaven as a quark would maintain the forest is just cellulose and board feet. Now. It's not about who's right and who's wrong, you know is a mountain a deity Jeep. I love rock. It's that how the belief system metaphorically influences a society with profoundly different consequences for the ecologically footprint. If you believe a forest is just cellulose and board Faith you cut it down without thinking and the truth is that viewing the world in that extractive way is exceptional almost every society job.

"That doesn't buy into off the fact that you know, the gender is the most important issue in America, you know home so so, you know, the there's fault on both sides and there has to be a coming together into a politics of Common Sense what the Buddhists call the middle way. It's not rocket science. It's an awful mental podcast. I want to make sure that I ask you just one thing about the environment. I was going to ask about Trump versus the environment but also want to ask something about rivers. So if I can get two more questions, yeah, perfect. So you just touched on something that feels like the thing that it's podcast which is can you talk about the impact Trump has had on the environment and that dead Another term of Trump would have on the environment. I mean, I think you know, he's done everything he can to reverse every any bit of environmental legislation. But you know the polls show off to the American people are are a hundred percent behind the Clean Water Act the Clean Air Act. Look, I mean, you know, I did environmental series years ago and you know Pittsburgh and in in the nineteen fifty g l a, you know, you couldn't drive a car without headlights the middle of the day and Pittsburgh, you know flights into LAX Airport were diverted because of fog on a perfectly Blue Sky day rivers and Cleveland were igniting in Flames before the birth of the EPA, which was brought into being by the way by Richard Nixon. So yes, it's a temporary setback, but but but eventually proper regulation would be put back into place and and more importantly, you know, you can't wish your way off. Out of a a you can't wish your way in to to to reverse the flow of History. You know Cole is dead and all the rhetoric off all the photo ops at coal mines won't begin to reverse. What is it Technical and scientific transformation wage as we begin to deal seriously with climate change. I mean America's leadership has been reduced to mockery by the American way to towards climate change and but I mean once Trump is out of office all that can be readily reversed. I mean, I think the, you know, the deeper thing is that, you know, covid-19 shown us that were biological beings are living planet. We also saw the incredible recuperation of the planet the the the canals in Venice the rivers in Columbus, Georgia.

End of the American era you've you hit a quote that has been going through my head over and over and over again the last few weeks, which was the McCarthy have you no decency and I feel like I'm Trump McConnell Graham repeatedly asked that question with absolutely not have any decency. I mean these are these are people who you know, I mean, they're they're they're chilling at this system of corruption. I mean, the the political process United States is so bizarrely swamped with money, you know, my brother-in-law was in a Rockefeller and he was the senator for many years from a relatively small state of West Virginia where he he was a wonderful Senator and did great things for the state and for the people, but you should have thought that a senator from a small state like West Virginia with the last name of Rockefeller if there was any politician anywhere who might have been able to escape the name. To spend every waking hour raising funds for the next election which in the case of a congressman occurs every two years. So you're barely elected when you're you're constantly campaigning off constantly raising money. You would have thought J J might have been able to escape that but he couldn't to play in the game to stay in the game. He had to be on the phone every weekend every night seeking funding to to to to hold his position that he might do good for the American people and especially the people of West Virginia. He didn't want to be on the phone raising money. It was just what he needed to do and you know that that is is as created a kind of a cesspool and of which you know, I mean, you know, it's a classic adage, you know, em, you know, a politician thinks of the next election a Statesman thinks of the Next Generation and there haven't been very many Statesmen in office in American a long time wage. At the end of the day, it's clear that politicians follow but they rarely lead or have the capability of leading. This is where the people have to lead their way out of the darkness. If you will often writers and artists and Poets and musicians and those who really believe in the beauty of the American dream and the hopes of the American experiment and I I count myself very much as one of those individuals, you know, I I want America to thrive for for another century and I just want that country to be the country home of Walt Whitman, you know and the Grateful Dead. Well you mean you talk about Trump not being able to tell the truth and I feel like these single truest thing. He ever said was that he could shoot a man on 5th Avenue and wouldn't lose it out. He's had I gather the the most stable popularity ratings never been they seem to go between 35 and 43 and not rub. But again again, you have to understand the nature of his base and you know, you know, I mean, that's the thing about Trump space is it doesn't change he's not he's not, you know, there's never been a president whose popularity rating has not increased in a time of national crisis in the covid-19. They that they simply don't believe what is in front of them that the truth has lost all currency and and you know, the internet's played a big role in that. I mean the the democratization of opinion the anonymity of opinion the viciousness of opinion the absolute elimination of discretion and decorum and honor that thought people to be civil in their in their interactions in public at least that is kind of evaporated but the bottom line the bottom line is if you want to bring that down lower 40% of the electorate into a place where they no longer feel Isolated or hateful or full of contempt for the others you're going to have to address their basic economics needs. Yeah. Some of them are independently wealthy successful Republican businessman who vote for Trump cynically because he D regulates the the economy wage particularly in terms of environmental initiatives, you know, they vote some people vote for him because you know, they have a dream of putting the the genie of of Roe versus Wade back in the bottom. She's never going to happen, but some of them vote for them just cuz they're they're fed up, you know, and they're fed up with being being being made fun of in Hollywood television. They're Fed Up of of being seen as being ignorant people of the Middle America, you know, they're Fed Up of you know, a world of politically correctness with language. They don't wage. Understand, you know, the idea that a college kid is supposed to identify themselves by pronouns. I mean what the hell, you know, I mean every time we have one of those off the politics of grievance the politics of identity the liberal kind of stuff that sweeps through the University Systems and and it's all the most token of initiatives cuz it doesn't ask of anybody anything except to indulge in the the the token.

We would finally realize that race is a social construct that has no biological meaning whatsoever that were all cut from the same genetic cloth. And we're all descendants of the same handful of people who walked out of Africa some sixty five thousand years ago. And every other culture took the culture is something to say just as each deserves to be heard. No culture is a failure to be you every culture is unique answer to a fundamental question. What does it mean be human and alive with the peoples of the world answer that question they do so and 7,000 different voices of humanity and those answers become our our repertoire for dealing with the challenges that will confront us as a species them to come in centuries.

The Dodgers keep adding on their seventh time up, and they've scored in five separate innings. 12 pitch and that's in the dirt. It bounces away from Julius Diaz and down to second base goes Barnes. So runners at 2nd and 3rd now on the count goes to two and two. Like I said, it's like spring training. That's the second wild pitch in the inning for Wade Davis. Dia's Dropped to his knees and tried Smother it off his chest protector, but it bounced far enough away for Barnes to advance not for the runner looks to come home from third, however. Two balls and two strikes with two on and the pitch swing and a fly ball deep to right left center field racing back puller. He dives, but it's out of his reach and up against the wall. Lux comes in.

And come ground you know in the past few years, there's been an outpouring of protests and new voices speaking up for the rights of a diverse number of Americans who have felt voiceless until now. So what would a healthy leadership look like in our country today at a time when the economy in the climate of better down and it certainly is a striking challenging moment in our society describe what the right leader could do for this country. The right leader would bring us together. Who find the better angels of our nature as Lincoln said, you know who would who would leave no doubt whatsoever that it was time to eliminate the original sin of the? Republic, which is. Struggles with race who exposed to all people that races an utter fiction, and at the same time not allow a culture of Grievance to dominate the public discourse to create some kind of sense that to be an American is not to be. Oneself, but to be part of something greater than oneself and not kind of flag-draped patriotism, which is so easy to evoke the rather something deeper than that a true commitment and knowledge very much as James says, is that you know the roads we drive on weren't paid for by you. The hospitals we build the national parks that we have. There is a great grand American experiment. That has always been the beacon of hope for the world and believe me when one of the points I make in that article is, is that if and when the hinge of history opens to Asia and the torch passes to China, this will not be a time to gloat. It will not be a moment to celebrate if and when the torch history passes into the hands of. a Communist Party. With such contempt for democracy such treatment of ethnicities creating social capital index. To monitor the lives of their own citizenry. We will be very stylistic for the best years of the American Century. Let's all hope that everything I described in this article can be addressed, and let's just hope that the hint in the article of this may be the end of the American era. There is no one in the world who would rather be proved to be wrong than myself. Wait I'm willing to make you a bet. This election in November, America will have the greatest number of voter voices in the history of our nation. Which shows that they're still in awareness still a concern and still a path forward for our country because of people like you who point out that this is the moment for which we need it. I want to thank you for being here today and I wanNA. Thank you so much for for spending this time in a boy I'd love to have you come back again. But I we have a rare opportunity before we leave because you've got a book called. Magdalena. River. Dreams which launched yesterday. It's a biography of Columbia. Give us a preview of what we can expect when we get that book. Well, heck you're about the great Colombian writer called it a love letter to his nation. There is a parallel to what's going on in in the United States and that no country was more divided at war with itself in Columbia and yet the people have found a way to a piece of tentative peace a precarious peace but peace nevertheless, no, here's a country that has had a three way civil war. Fueled exclusively by the proceeds of the cocaine trade, the country has nevertheless maintain democracy civil society greened at. Sittings. Created millions of acres of National Park and pave the way for an incredible economic renaissance as two generations of young Colombians forced to flee are coming back to their country and we all have a kind of obligation because remember that the fuel of the war has always been cocaine. Think about this at the height of the cartel the meeting cartel was budgeting a thousand dollars a week to buy elastic bands just wrap the money in. The war on drugs has been responsible for Columbia's agonies just think about this. How would Americans feel if Canada had? Patterns, of drug consumption in the bars and boardrooms of our country laws that created the mafia facilitate, it is wealth and yet our enforcement did nothing to curtail the distribution of the drug such that eighty five million Americans were driven from their homes. Well, that is exactly what happened in. Columbia. So in that sense. It. Behooves us to pay attention to this country as it struggles to to find its way Ford the world is falling apart but happily Columbia's falling together and the book is a celebration of a nation. That is not a place of violence more, but is home to the greatest biological ecological diversity on the planet. Thank you to Wade Davis for joining.

"Okay we're back with my co host Jane Albrecht Larsen and our Special Wade Davis Wade as that question again because I think that was really profound I totally reject the idea that every trump voter in two thousand sixteen. With somebody who crawled out for beneath the stone as as portrayed in the liberal media or in the democratic ranks. But what I don't understand is how that cohort given that he did not deliver on a single one of those promises with the possible exception. Packing the judiciary with with conservatives. Why do they cling to him was researched nasty to this day. Actually, we had a previous show here on meet me in the Middle With some gentlemen that I thought were really profound who actually defined the mindset of the conservative voter and they said that the most powerful driver was fear of chaos. It's clear that they are simply trying to avoid the chaos that they feel the Democrats will bring or at least that's what the rhetoric is. I do think that people who voted for trump a good chunk of them were frustrated by the non-responsiveness of the system to their needs for a long time and this was basically there hell Mary Pass. What happens in twenty twenty? We'll be another question. So wait I think that your message actually was probably well delivered at the right time. When America as a society as a community can make a decision to make a change run of the things. That's interesting. I guess is a response to this article I, mean you know I did it on SPEC nobody expected it to to to take off as did and the responses which Kinda fall. Into two camps are interesting. You know the people who are fundamentally sympathetic with the arguments are respond with maybe predictably deep sadness no and resolve like, okay. We've been woken up let's think about these things. Let's correctness things and I think that's wonderful. The vitriolic communications of come my way are remarkable in their singular unwillingness to deal with any issues. Any of the questions you know it weighed, can we just talk about your signs of progressive change for me because I have a theory about one of the ills of our society that was best described by you and the reaction to your article the reality is that once upon a time, the smallest minds in America could. The people within shouting distance and now social media has given them a massive megaphone where they can react to someone like you to millions of people and they have this massive microphone and can have a massive audience. That's one of the biggest problems with our society. That's not a change. Those people have existed throughout our history. They just happen to have a platform. Now, what are we? To do about that. Yeah. There's there's an incredible as I'm sure that both Jane Ed would have seen in their own careers. You know the the democratization of of opinion, the disappearance of discretion, the limit of the Internet allowing you to say whatever you feel like same and the fact that most Americans now get the news from facebook not from the traditional media and the Algorithms of course. Our values together and your cohorts so that we never speak to anyone doesn't already agree with us. This is the most pernicious influence of social media but what should we do about it? Way We are where we are. We have to regulate the Internet. I hate to say that you cannot have institution powerless as facebook paying lip service to these issues and eliminating the arbit- as eight commentary. It used to be whether you in a small town America or whether you were in a neighborhood in New York social control sort of limited what you could say and what you can do because you were in a community and the community could exert control. Now, you can find your own extreme community spread out over the world rather than necessarily go to governmental regulation of this federal law was passed as you. As you know, basically, immunizing the content purveyors be the facebooks or whoever of the world from liability for what was said on their platforms if you got rid of that law and allowed there to be liability for people injured by the content that. Is Knowingly carried on facebook will then the legal system itself would go a long way toward regulating that without having to trust some government to come in and regularly, and that might be a more logical way to do it since it was the government, the gave that immunity to those content providers simply because those content providers paid great big contributions to the members of Congress both parties the nonpartisan comment to given that immunity from liability. Now, if they were liable for the content was spread, they might start self-regulating that content i. think that's a really good point I mean know the minute you try to regulate through government intervention, you create political disputes and inefficiencies and. When you can just simply say. Take away that regulation and you can liberate the thing like that. That's the way to go. I'm not talking about heavy regulation I. Think you need a combination of two and I think one reason mark Zuckerberg wants or is to provide the sort of base level playing field so that if they do get liability, they know where that liability lies, you know Bobby Kennedy is a good friend of mine and what he wrote about the fairness doctrine is so true when the. Airways came along the question was who owned up you could own a radio station, but airways were public domain and the fairness doctrine gave us Walter cronkite and the idea that news was balanced I. Don't know if we can really trust government to effectively regulate. That's where your reference to the fairness doctrine was so nice because the government simply said, you've got to have fairness you gotta balance out actually that law was designed by Herbert Hoover when he was secretary of Commerce. Way. Your Essay at first read could feel like it's hopeless and yet it's clearly in soberly written in there for giving us kind of twenty twenty vision to look back at our mistakes and and also embrace some of our triumphs that we've achieved. What should we do now with this new education and our new clarity, our New Vision especially.

"Starting at 5 25 They're going to take on the Rangers his first pitch in 605 And of course you can only listen to that. Right here on K away news radio. Okay, so let's talk about those Rockies and what we can sort of expect this year. I got to be honest, I really keep coming back to this whole 60 game thing, feeling feeling that this is really good news for the Rockies like this, really? Feels like it lines up. And then, of course, we get the news today that the team is in second place in the division, which you know, we kind of pencil in the Dodgers. Right now. I feel like things were kind of braking well for the Rockies right now. Yeah. I mean, I I like the makeup of their club. To me, guys, as it usually does. It's going to come down to the pitching and the rotation. The guys in the rotation are confident from Marcus Gray Freeland sends a teller looks much much better than a year ago. And then I think it will be Cici Gonzales, but officially we don't know yet It'll be Gonzalez or Hoffman when they need 1/5 starter. And I mean, that's a confident group. Now they know it the same time they have to go out and perform the bullpen, I think is in a better position to be consistently good. Now whether or not I'm optimistic, or you're optimistic, really doesn't matter what I like hearing from the guises. They're optimistic, but they also know they've got to go do it. It's it's time to as Trevor Story said today. Talk doesn't matter anyway, but the time for talk is over. We've got to go play. Now We've got to go win games. I think this rotation is as well positioned. To turn in a quality year as we've seen, as Jeff British has said, they're young veterans. They're not. It's not a young staff anymore, guys. It's it's a staff with some miles on the tires. And some miles that have been difficult ones at times, and hopefully they will turn those struggles into lessons learned experience. What you know, learn what not to do what works all of that? And they pitch well, because if they pitch well, they're going to hit and they should be able to score runs. You know it would stay there on the pitching because you bring up kind of the back end of the rotation there. And some of those guys have been long relievers in recent years. More so than starters, there's I mean, there's times, Of course, you had no choice and you had to kind of put him out there person to tell it there for a minute was was a starter. There's long reliever and I start to wonder a little bit of how That will, of course, where on your bullpen. So you you seem optimistic about that putting guys out there that have really kind of mostly been long relievers of past couple of years. I do and and I think you break it down into a couple of different categories that they've. They've got three guys that'll be in the bullpen to start the year. Who can give them innings because, remember, they have two days off in the first week of the season. So basically, I think without saying it, But black has been sort of hinting at the fact that there's a good chance they're going to go with their top four starters for the first couple of turns. So that would obviously be Marquez Gray. Freeland incense Itala. That puts Cici Gonzalez, Jeff Hoffman and Ashton Goudeau, who is celebrating a birthday today, But yesterday, he finds out he makes his first major league roster. I mean, it's just an awesome story, and he was in double a last year. But those three guys who will be the long relievers through this first couple of weeks. One of them will be the fifth starter again. I think it'll be Cici. We'll wait and see. But we know how Rocky's games go. They're still playing at course field. It's still a staff that's learning toe win and they're going. They're going to need guys that can fill innings because of tough starts. And so I think they're covered. In the long relief and then if you look at, let's work quickly from the back end a little bit forward. They're counting on Wade Davis to bounce back. I think he will. His track record shows he will Wade knows he has to do it. Now there without Scott Oberg for a short time because of a sore back, he'll start on ill. But when he's healthy, he showed, like he's their best reliever last year, and so he figures to be the setup guy in the eighth. But beyond those guys, you've got power arms like Daniel Bard, another great story. Cairo, Diaz Carlos Estevez that the newcomer to them Tyler Kinley, who had a great spring training in Scottsdale has been pretty good in summer camp. And then you see Amon take kind of an up and comer that just needs to gain some experience. But they've got some options in the back end, even without Oberg healthy and then when Scott comes back You get it to the eighth. I mean, Oberg and Davis. If it's a big if, but if Wade Davis is on that that's not a bad bullpen, But again, guys. I could be optimistic about it. The Rockies could be optimistic, optimistic about their positioning. They've got to go out and pitch well and if they do I'm telling you, it could be a fun two months. Well, it sounds to me like you're you're optimistic there. I was listening to that. I was optimistic. As you know, Sports book wagering is now legal here in Colorado and on the bed. MGM from Ako Benjamin 100 Iraqis were popping off at plus 20,000 So I bet the entire farm on your advice there might Well, just make sure you include a cut for me when you and Anne and since we know that you are going to win, we don't have to talk about the alternative. Yeah, right. You You won't know where you I will disappear on September 28th. Thank you Have a spare room at your place if I lose right? Yeah, we could arrange for that. Mike Rice joining us here? Let's go to the hitting here for a little bit. I I kind of feel like David doll, especially if he's going to be top of the order, which that's what it kind of looks like. I feel like he's primed for a really big season. Yeah, there are a couple guys I would agree with you. And the biggest thing for David is to stay healthy. As people know, I mean, he was an all star. And he played in 100 games and then got hurt in the second half last year, and his time was really curtailed. There's no question he can put it together. And I love you know, you look at the game. I guess it was last night. They're all running together for me already when he had a four pitch walk. To start off in his first at bat, and then he just he He had a really bad at bat made in out and then and then he hit a home run. And that's and Bud Black said afterwards. You know, David has the talent to learn from those mistakes and be able to turn a bad a bad into a good one really quickly. I think he disguise the limit for David Dull. It's all about Staying healthy. He he battled through a little bit of, um, abdominal soreness. He called it an oblique..

"Back to back straight goats for hard throwing reliever Wade Davis toe open the top of the seventh inning as he tries to keep the Royals to within a run. But that's just 1/2 of the concern for Kansas City right now. The other problem is the guy on the mound on the other side, the most dominant postseason picture during the time in the early decades of 2010. That would be Madison Bumgarner. Giants Game seven starter Tim Hudson had a feeling that once mad bomber entered the game, he wasn't leaving until the final out, was recorded as soon as he took the deal. You know, I had all the confidence in the world. Once we had that Lee and he was out there, I know he was going to go all the way. That's just that's just what his makeup is all about. As for Bumgarner, his mindset was simple. Just find a way to send the Royals back to the dugout and I was just concentrating on making pitches. You know what I'm thinking about? How many interns I was going to go or how many pitches or any of that. Just thinking about getting out. Bumgarner get incredible work in Game seven on two days rest without his best stuff, which was to be expected all in all in Game seven Bumgarner through 41 pitches that were out of the strike zone. What the Royals would help him out. They would chase, 18 of them 44% and Bumgarner recorded more outs on pitches out of the Zone. Eight. Then he did in the zone seven. Up next.

"Got speed even thinks about maybe trying to take off for a second to count the pitch and more slides one into right field. That's a base hit coming into scores sound of all around second heading for third, his pants the throw cut off by Escobar. And Michael Moore's delivers for the second time already in Game seven, and the Giants are back ahead. 3 to 2. You're going to win this series. They have to beat the three headed monster that no two situation is doing Just that very thing. Another to strike base hit that has been the key for the Giants tonight. How about that to the opposite field against 99 again from Herrera behind in the count? Two strikes more just so strong on hit it into right field, And not only did he score Sandoval, but he moves. Hunter Pence to third. So it's still only one out. The Giants have Crawford at the plate in a spot where it will not take a hit. To add to their now 3 to 2 lead. There's excellent speed of third base with Hunter Pence should get a fly ball deep enough in the outfield score pitch. Crawford peels one foul off to the left out of play and Crawford a little late, But I had a pretty nice looking cut. There was looking fastball got it. That's the one thing about Herrera is pretty predictable, too. That fastball But I mean what you're doing now, why wouldn't you be? Giants have gone ahead 3 to 2 top of the fourth inning of Game seven, first and 3rd 1 out. Crawford swings and misses and there is the first change up at 19. It was perfect. It was right down there top of knees and just exploded down. That's that's not fair. Rougher. Seen it now. Outfielder for the Royals, especially in left and center creeping in closer with those great throwing arms in the left fielder came the centerfielder middle infield double play. Pitch. Crawford bounces one softly foul first base side another changeup from Herrera. So he did back it up, and Crawford did well, this time to get a piece of it and Hunter Pence as soon as he hit that ball on the ground, broke with all of his speed toward the plate. So It's one of the ground pence. It appears we'll be often running on. I think you almost have to do that, with his speed aggression on the base paths. Still owing to Herrera shakes off his catcher as the sign he wants. Come set the pitch and Crawford takes down it in at 98 miles an hour. He's locked up Lower foundation down and he didn't budge. His front foot planted in that Chase did not budge. He's seeing it big. Crawford hit a sacrifice fly in a big spot in the second to knock in a run chance to drive in another one here 3 to 2, Giants two on one out. Here's the 12 pitch and it's strike three called on the outside to get a strike out there pitching for the first time we've seen strikes home stretch that wide tonight against left handed hitter. 98 right on the outside corner. That's Frag zone. Almost unhittable pitch of proper just could not get a swing off Herrera with a big strike 32 down now, and it's going to take a hit from the ninth place hitter Juan Perez. He's a good fastball hitter saw him do it to Wade Davis in San Francisco pitch, Perez swings and misses threw the fastball. This is the guy right here that can really break the back mentally of Royals. If Park Perez could come up with a base hit here, not known for his offense on one, the count pitch is hit on the ground softly, charging it short. Escobar. He's got it. He'll throw the first in time for the out and the Giants get just the one Herrera comes in from the bullpen does give up the hit on Michael Morse, but only the one run the Giants leave a runner at third, but it's sort of all the pets.

UK's Johnson moves to suspend Parliament ahead of Brexit
"Hell has broken loose this morning. As boris johnson announced his intention to schedule a queen's speech on the fourteenth of october and suspend parliament for the four or five weeks beforehand james this completely appended the battle between boris johnson the anti no deal factions in parliament so yesterday you had the opposition bodies coming together so they basically look look at passing a law to force boris johnson to seek an extension. This is essentially dining streets response. I it is a move designed to massively limit the amount aalto time available for passing any such law and it is essentially saying to m._p.'s when palmer returns on tuesday you'll ever need to know confidence me all except for i'm basically kept my my way essentially but you also see in this letter here center m._p.'s as well so abortions and he is trying to save piece bear with me. I'm still aiming for deal so this is still not a government. This is explicitly aiming for no deal now. I think you can't say this is in tani. Johny normal constitutional procedure in the length of the population is long is long by modern signs is a very long one but it is also not a totally unprecedented maneuver people who came out you know coups and we're all getting over heated because this is what what happens before queen speech but obviously the time you miss queensmead is designed to limit as much as possible for legislative options available to suppose m._p.'s trying to stop a not brexit and is about. Do you think the opposition m._p.'s failed to get the act together to watch respond to this properly. They are going to be able to get. I bet act together because even they yesterday we had three different things saying they will do anything anything possible to stop and they still brexit we also saw in that frenzy of activity quite how split these groups are even the turks jeremy cope with physician leaders basically broke up with the the two different groups who jeremy corbyn those he invited saying slightly different things about what they degrade them and then you've got the church house declaration which was organized ice bhai formulate m._p. Luciana perjuring existing labour m._p. Steven downs he hit which again is a slightly different grouping of m._p. As some of you wouldn't want to work with jeremy corbyn there were few torey empty signed that declaration but then if you'd have to the conservative group which it doesn't have a leader doesn't have a name of the quds squads that has a split as we were discussing on yesterday's pause between those who want to stop no deal and those who actually want to stop brexit and they've been coming up up against these differences for months now perhaps boris johnson is done the favor by basically eighty forcing them into some kind of action but it's very difficult to see how they are going to be able to agree over the next few days. What that course of action is going to be and on who's going entity in charge of in yellow thing. This is a reminder of these downing street is not going to play by the conventional rules which is ah wanted that evacuate a bill which was designed to make the prime minister seeking extension were because theresa may essentially cooperated with it. I think it's quite clear porcelain since prepared to perogie broke parliament in this matter if pond postal requiring him to seek an extension he would find some way to that that there's one obvious way to do that would repeat request extension in such a way e e would be bound to refuse it so for example parliament's as you got to request an extension bortles and says right so that's donald tusk saying <music>. I'm requesting. Essential palmans told me but by the way i'm going to be the most bloody difficult and obstreperous member of year you've ever seen i'm more offense. Century prevent you from functioning as an organization the e._u. Would refuse circumstances alternatively. He could say well. I wade davis so if you want to promise ican extension. You've got to bring me down. Bring them up. This whole signaled the no confidence vote in this whole issue of jeremy corbyn because obviously jeremy kobe doesn't allow anyone else become prime minister other than him but backing jeremy jeremy kuhlman is as his body was saying is is too much for lots of tory m._p.'s ano- say philosophy is growing group of independent m._p.'s. You've left that party or or arbor policies because ideological differences is it does seem that boston has slightly stepped away from the nuclear option that probation isn't going to happen over the brexit deadline headline on the first of october. Why do you think that is. I think it basically gives him enough time again. As james says to just tutorial m._p.'s that he does else he does still want to see a deal also gives him in time for the next few weeks and over the conference recess to do some of those negotiations but also to to set out domestic stole the letter that he said to 'em piece today basically tried to justify prorogation on grounds that the government needed a bold new domestic agenda and the time had already been wasted over the past three years with bill's very worthy but we've just really seen as a way of repulsing the time in parliament's and so that's his justification for education but what it also does means that the government can talk about what it wants to do domestically okay ahead of the election that everyone is now expecting to be called in reasonably short order

"They sit at still concerns about wade davis no question about that scott oberg got a lit up yesterday in the game against the dodgers he ended up pulling going obviously two-thirds was his final innings pitched gave up two hits three runs one walk one strikeout raising his e._r._a. on the season two to one but he had he'd really been spectacular up until then but really it's about these games that they gotta have the these these series that they gotta have in the giants are one of those the giants are not a good team the diamondbacks i don't think are a very good team and maybe kick yourself a little bit about giving away two games to the padres that that certainly can be the case but nothing you can do about that now but if you could all of a sudden say well we played the dodgers close and gabe ourselves a chance to win those games despite most of the league probably thinking we're gonna get swept either way the nuance of how it happened is more than just win loss especially in a long season for this team the rockies are going to have to take whatever momentum they got out of those dodgers games whatever positive momentum i guess is what i should say whatever positive momentum they got out of those dodgers games take that to the series against san francisco tonight win this series you have to win the series the answer now isn't so much about hey you came off the dodgers you got one you got to you now have to win this series and then you carry it into the final six games sorry the final nine games of before the all-star break with six of them being at home And you kind of see right? I mean because because the dodgers are. they're juggernaut right now but they're twenty and sixteen on the road the thirty four and nine they play great at home and they play good on the road to i mean winning record in baseball and the road is spectacular thing to have the rockies last year i was one of the things that you loved about him so much early on they just were so good on the road but that's where the rockies can strike they've been a good home team they're twenty two and fifteen the rockies are twenty two and fifteen at home They're taking on a giants team that is the flip of that fifteen and twenty one at home. They're just not good. Anyway. Good anywhere, as I mentioned a Mayes, ninety on their scored against differential. opportunities present themselves but tonight john gray is going to have to avoid the blow up inning isn't he he's going to have to avoid the moment win the rockies need him to be steady and he is anything but he's going to have to be the john gray that is been a little bit more consistently especially in this month and that that's what the rockies need him to be tonight and they would love to be able to put this one away as early as possible of course you're pomerance is going to be a pretty and for this one as well there's no question about that he gets up for these games against his former team but i expect john to pitch well tonight the starting rotation has been pretty steady recently and that's what we're going to be having.
