"We. This is a final thoughts. Okay my final thought is. Because i don't know how much we got into it. But the fact that the gold glove award show was blasted out on the day that we have the presidential election. I i'm not sure how much time we spent on that. We didn't beginning of this podcast. I mean come on. You cannot tell me right here right now that were actively trying to grow the game of baseball and that were paying attention to what's going on and pull that shit. You're going to acknowledge your games. Best defensive players and best defensive efforts throughout the season and instead of giving them a stage all their own a stage all your as a sport you decide to run it simultaneously with the president with the most divisive presidential election of our time. That's when you're going to run this product out there. Who are you kidding. Who do you think you're fooling when you tell people you care about this game when you tell people you are concerned and the growth it matters. Who do you think is buying into that. Bullshit rob manfred. You had the opportunity to have it all to yourself. But but you didn't. You chose not to now is not just not paying attention. Is that the people in the room with you. Not paying attention. Because i feel like that's a fuck up that you almost have to practice. You have to work at fucking something like that like. That's not just an accident. There's calendars we know the twenty twenty one schedule. We do the. When do we know the twenty one scheduled the end of two weeks into the first season. So what what's going on here. What's going on here. And it was brought to my attention on twitter. And it's a great point. And i forgetting the individual's name who brought it up But they said they they they made the will ohman who it was at the wheel omen taking a a page out of my book. The socializing losses privatizing gains. Nobody watches the gold glove award. Show then guess what nobody gives a shit about it and if nobody cares about it and the significance starts to wane well then having that in the contractual language for compensation for players kind of goes away to so now me get paid for winning that gold glove. That's no longer a thing. Why because nobody's watching your gold glove awards show anyway. Nobody really cares about that dallas. Well yeah you want to know why they don't care 'cause you run on the same day as the election. Are you fucking kidding. You spent just swallow that and be like oh yeah super big mistake there on major league. Baseball's part nothing to see here. Nope just another effort to drive down player value and increase the profit for the owners. It's a sad sad sad sad state of affairs when the individual who is charged with governing. The sport fucking hates it. Yeah i don't give a fuck about the gold glove. I really don't. I haven't ever since they gave it to rafael palmeiro as a first baseman when he was a d. h. and then they gave the gold glove to derrick jeeter when he was statistically the worst defensive shortstop since they started a measuring defensive runs saved. And and nobody's no. Nobody's arguing with you on that. Nobody at all. But if you heard what. I just said about players getting paid compensated for winning those awards. Then you don't get to just ignore. Well that's what. I said months ago when or not months ago but weeks ago and they started talking about gold glove awards and i was like the only people that should get upset about the results of the gold glove. Awards are the players that have bonuses and their contracts that they get like twenty five k if they win the gold glove award. If you're a fan and you're mad that your favorite player to win the gold glove award when you feel like they deserved it. I mean the gold glove award has not recognize the best defensive player at each position. In fucking like two decades. Like it's not. It's not an accurate representation of the best defensive player at each position. The only people that should be upset about it into your point are the players who have bonus structures. Were they get broken off. Fifty grand twenty five grand for winning a gold glove award and now they didn't win it and it's like well fuck i. I was the best defensive player at that position. And some other fucking guy got it just because you're trying to sell more gloves it's stupid but and how about this so this. This is where the award young we already know. How big shit storm valuing defensive. Play is how difficult those metrics are to try to sift through. So you're trying to figure out a way to identify good quality defensive players and in the same breath you are taking away the importance of acknowledging that very effort that you're looking to identify. How do you do that. How do you do those two things and think that anybody can look at that and think you're trying to promote the game baseball but let me guess. Each one of these gold glove winners. They gotta do a better of promoting themselves right now. That's what should have happened right. One lasts update before we get out of here The red sox flew to puerto rico to me.

"To a park and just tried to throw people like a g a little more difficult than than a playoff game for me just mentally. So i'm big into like making it feel as big as you can and whatnot so i just enjoy the playoffs man. I have so much fun plan in those games and our team. The energy is just so different Any any team that's been passed out different that it feels but i think most of our guys kind of embrace that and we just have a lot of fun man and i think as far as the relationship with you encouraged goes was there an and this is beautiful that you talk about motivating yourself creating the moment fucking fire yourself up. Was there ever a moment that you thought to yourself. You know what sure. He's the older brother. I'm the little brother the younger brother in this relationship. But right now the the naysayers are the bully on the playground. And i'm coming to kick some ass now. I'm tired of hearing this shit that we can't get it done for him that he fought that balls in my hand. Let's go. was there ever like putting him on your back or taking him out there with you. Kind of feeling now clayton's about something that you need to do that. I don't think you know what i mean. I was so happy to see the kind of the run. He made this year in the playoffs and a lot of the a lot of the critiques of him. In the playoffs are so so unfounded. If you really dive what he's done and had two days three literally wrote a blog about just wrote the wrote them for a long time and that's the way the game has been played. You watch boss and bring all their starters back would've voted in that game. Three things like that like that happens in the playoffs but at the end of the day. Like if you look at his first start on normal wrestling. He's always good. He's still clayton kershaw and he's still been really really good. It just so happens that he had to try to be superman all the time for a lot of years and i think this year. We had a couple of guys that were able to do that. Julio step does for huge upfront site never seen anything like it. You know so. I don't think clayton had to be that. I'll editor who's be clayton kershaw. And he certainly was a i. Don't think a team has won the world series at home since i believe twenty thirteen You guys clinch in the like the brand new ballpark. It's in taxes. You're not playing texas but like did you guys almost take like the. Hey we're just gonna launch us on the road type deal because they allowed eleven thousand fans in there and most of them are dodger fan so it's almost like you did clinch the world series on the road. Because when you get a clincher your your home fans are gonna fly to wherever that is that they can actually see it like. What did it feel like to clinch in a neutral site but also still have a bunch of your fans there. I thought it was really cool. There brought fans and to be honest with you. It was nice to have that kind of energy back in there. a little bit I will say the atlanta fans are now they got on pretty good but you know what man we we were there for a month. Whatever it was so we didn't have to change locker rooms. We didn't change anything hotel like our days were pretty similar and they felt pretty at home to us. You know. so you know dodger stadium and it wasn't fifty thousand of our fans but for us inside the club. All's we had moved our cleats out of that locker in you know so. We've i think we felt pretty at home. And i'm not gonna say. I ever wanna do it again. But but i think the neutral site thing was wasn't as bad as it could have been. Do you like it though. Like do you like like the. Because i i know scott. Boris was the guy that had the idea originally where he was like. They should do this every year. Like even before the pandemic like make it like a world series week almost like a super bowl. Feel where you can go and celebrate the game of baseball and it's played at a neutral sites that fans of all teams can go there. Do you like that idea i. I'm not crazy about it. Oh i think i think can be done well. I don't think that that's kind of how our game is played. I know. I like the two three two the travel day. You kinda get to go home and take a break like the these games from the wild card on our so mentally different than anything that that normal baseball is ever gonna feel like so you know. Obviously i can put myself in the shoes of like an nfl player nba. Because i just don't know but mentally. You are so much more drained from those games even when you're not playing even when not pitching so you know i think i think that's a two sided coin that right like you can stay at one place and never leave and then you never have to travel but i think having those off days in there is is something.

"San diego plays with a lot of emotion. And i don't think we were. I don't think it's a conscious effort to send a message or anything like that but we just handled it and moved on. And and i think Oliver guys were kind of onboard. With with how we handled it and felt good about it so when you finally do get to the to the end of the whole thing then i think you can kind of embrace it and let go of the san diego padres because i wanted. I want to start before the regular season and the outlook on the season. That you guys did eventually have ahead of you. So we're we're past spring training two point. Oh and we know what you guys have ahead of us. Sixty plus yada yada yada. Division has all but been handed to you dudes. Because you've all you've done everything you've needed to do to earn that right. When you find yourself squaring off against san diego earlier in the year and you. He touched up. What three solos. I think grisham about that man tat. Tease junior in a minute to but but was there ever a moment where you guys realized or guys thought to yourself. You know what sure. We're the big dog here but let's take ten minutes and take stock of what the padres are doing right now. Was there a moment where you can really start to since the club. Not wanting to just be the doormat there. Not just holding the puck and door open for you to the postseason anymore. I think what's interesting about. Is i think. Probably the reason that we've been so successful in the past six eight ten years while before i even got here a our culture is is pretty damn good in there and led by kirsch and guys like that. That have been there. And i've been in la since before we were kind of on through. Everyone and i think. I don't think we take any team for granted ernie game for granted. We've won so many games in in the past few years. Especially you know from what. I can remember being here and we just win a lot of games and i don't think you do that kind of thinking that anything's going to be handed to you and you walk in place in you go. And it's like oh they traded for these guys. We don't know much about him. We don't know much about grisham grisham. Obviously pretty good player. We'd heard about tat and what he did last year. I would say. Open your eyes a little bit but in play the whole year. Then you seem kind of have this year so it was kind of piece by piece. You just see what they're doing and building over there and then they go and make the club injured deal and and is kind of a different animal this year than he has been so they obviously have a lot of talent and was a tough series but at the end of the day. We're trying to win more games than we lost and we were able to do that when we were talking about your game. Three world series. Start this year. I went back and talked about the game. Three start against boston in two thousand eighteen when you absolutely shoved but it's like that gets lost because the game and for another six and a half hours like that. That was the eighteen inning game. So are you aware that you're sort of like building in addition to be a great regular season pitcher like you're you're building resume is like a big game postseason pitcher like is. That's something that you think about where you're like. Hey you kind of look back. And you're like i've actually. I've delivered in some pretty big spots for this team. There's two is look at pitching and big games and things like that and in dallas and you kind of you know agree with some one you. You can't approach it on all right us. It's the same game. It's the same thing dies do that. They're very successful. I'm personally wanna make it as big in my head is i. Can i wanna make feel huge. Because i feel like. I'm better if i if the world kind of revs me up and i have to slow myself. I'm not very good at getting myself going. Like you know if i went out.

"Wrong move to make in the moment like none of us had the benefit of hindsight before we determined that decision to be absolutely catastrophic. None of us but you know what he had direct. He had the benefit of wisdom from a big league career jeered. That's what he had. He had the benefit of wisdom having been around the game for as long as he's been around the game he had the benefit of all that and that did not win out on the day. That sucks that's heartbreaking. So what's really ironic about is you're going to have a guy or you have a guy who was fired by his organization for conceivably not being the leader that the team needed and here. He is up for the award. That would acknowledge him as the best leader of a team in the league. And then you have another guy who his decision making got his team to exactly where they were and conversely his decision making is exactly what cost them right the ring or potentially but you know jerks something ask you ask me down but i wanted you know who i fucking. Preseason pick was for manager of the year. You know who's gonna end up winning manager of the year you know who's gonna look like an idiot even though he was right me because i picked kevin cash to be manager of the year. Am i going to be correct. Yes i am is. Is that going to be the correct decision. No because manager of the year should be voted on after the fucking world series. And if it's voted on after the world series. Do you think that kevin cash is winning that award. No he's not. I am the correct idiot in this old on. Well then right here right now right here right now you have a choice to make today is where you draw the line in the sand. Today's where we make a stand. I will say this even as a man who gets to celebrate the only three time manager of the year. Jesus call rice down now. I am not from this moment on. I am boycotting the manager of the year award until they allow athletes to occur after the postseason boycotting the manager award. Let's let's say it was conducted after the world series. Who are you voting for. I'm honestly voting for dusty baker. I am i was there. And that's i mean if you're if you're throwing that in there because look and that's the drum that i was beating all year long. I said at the beginning. I said this is the most important off to hell with garrett cole and his half a billion dollars this is the most plo. This is the most important postseason offseason acquisition that was going to be made and it was because of what dusty did all season what they should do. Rose took the bullets now. He pointed the arrows at himself. He this is what they should do. They should do it twice. They should do it to take. I think they should vote on manager of the year before the postseason and that final they should. They should vote on the manager of the year before the postseason and those votes count as two points and then they should vote on it again after the world series in that counts as one point. Well see i was gonna say like like the all star game for players. It's sort of acknowledging the guys who have had a really good run to get things going. How 'bout at that point in time we take stock of some managers that have been doing well. Maybe they've made some decisions. Maybe them being involved in the game has really shown up in some way and we identify those guys. And now you've got you know we're kind of paying attention to a group and then from that group who makes it into the postseason. That's the group that you can start to really evaluate. Because i think even if you don't allow the voting to occur until after the postseason you're still probably going to skew heavily towards somebody who's in that postseason and probably somebody who's hanging around towards the end of that postseason so while today are votes are cast for dusty baker under that premise. If we actually see it play out and given cash does it make the decision. He made is dusty baker. Still your answer. probably not. yeah. I agree with that. I think that that one decision which isn't even it should not. Even one hundred percent be attributed to kevin cash like they're talking about this on mlb network and it'll never happen. But i i get the sentiment. And i like it. Where if you're going to be calling shit like that from upstairs don't have kevin caspi hung out to dry for like these postgame press conferences right like yeah like have like the executive like is how jim joyce perfect example. Jim joyce umpires. Don't have to meet with the media. But jim joyce met with the media after he blew the garage perfect game. He's like you know what a man that's on me. I'll fucking answer your questions. Whatever fucking nerd upstairs that was like you know what if we don't want them to see the lineup. Three times doesn't matter. How many pitches like that's coming from me. You go get him you go pull him you fucking face the music but then the counter that is we hired kevin cash like part of the job of being the manager is you gotta face the music for the organization not just not just for you and your thoughts and your decisions you got to face the music for everyone because the nerd upstairs with the calculator these. He's a little nervous he doesn't like to. he's not a big public speaker as well as more of a crunch in the numbers guy. You're the guy who's part of your job. Description is.

"Yep but it was Second on that list sears. You're still voting a brave american league. Mvp even if i swap out. Jose ramirez and put shane bieber in. There is a is a top three candidate. I think. I think if i really really really really crunch the numbers i might come out on that side too but i don't think so on the surface on the surface you're telling yourself this is a dude who made beeps make eleven twelve starts like a fifth of the fucking start like anyone ever game dinner every game. The indians had a chance to win every single game. He started plus which doesn't count. But in this again and i hate the the qualifier but it matters in this season you had a guy. Go out there and give you chance to win. Every single start he made you would die for a guy like that over thirty three starts in a season and not only did he give you a chance. He damn near the one thing he lost. I think the indians lost two games that he started and they were both like seven innings to runs or whatever it was either start he had he had no stinkers in those twelve starts out of the finalists that i'm giving here. Jose abreu gets my the most valuable player. Both of them and those winners will be announced on november twelfth thursday. In check that out and we'll be network then the cy young conversation. Shane bieber unanimous national league. Trevor bauer yu. Darvish jacob degrom. Let's not let's not sleep on the fact how about the dodgers. The dodgers are world series. Champions. the dodgers parted ways with two out of three. Cy young finalist in the american league. Wait what yeah. Yeah were you. The and the dodgers won the world series. They said no thanks. We're good to pictures. That are going to finish in the finals for cy young voting. We're good we don't need them. We've got other guys just. That's just a little. It's just a fun. Little like who shit you know. I think you look at those. No disrespect. Of course. I mean i think kanter my head a fucking year hundred review. How many times was that name mentioned on this. Podcast and zero. Like the fact the fact that he had a. let's call it third place. Finish for american league cy young. We didn't even notice just goes to show you how dominant shane. Bieber was like a weekly fucking segment on the podcast. And by his third start by his third start it was already an open and shut case that this guy is gonna win. The cy young and i had moved on as right. He's got the cy young let's talk. Mvp and yeah because they're ridiculous outings back to back to back you're like holy shit. Because he was breaking major league. Strikeout records every start. It was like this is the most striking superstar strikeouts through five starts most strikeouts through six stars and yeah then start breaking off the record books like that. That's when you put the cy young on the back burner that's already wrapped up now. You're gonna start talking. Mvp i i still. I'm not really sold. I mean i get. I get it. Jose ramirez fucking best wins over place in baseball share. Whatever no yes or rumors. Jose ramirez best ones replacement in baseball. Awesome fantastic you watch those fucking games like even india's fans will tell you. Yeah yeah. I mean like our team. Mvp was shane bieber. If if there's three finalists here bieber should have been the guy over jose ramirez. I don't care what is war was. Yeah i again like the point. I'm trying to make though with the american league. Cy young race is that it's going to be unanimous and the fact that there wasn't even like a finalist in there that was in a regular topic of conversation kind of weak. This kind of is a week a week class. It's not see that's just it was class. It's not a week. It's the in the winter in the class is just. I don't know it's a week. I'm not saying that. Like shane bieber is winning on a technicality. Of course. I'm not saying that. I'm saying that cantona had a great year but like when he was starting in the playoffs. Oh baby can't wait for this to my start. He's been a fucking aced like no one. No one felt that way. Besides maybe twins fans no. But that's what that's what this season gives you. That's what this season gave. You is the numbers and the production are what you're looking at right now. So you weren't given the opportunity to fall in love with a signature game from my asia where he punched out sixteen. And you were like you remember when you darvish and trevor. Bauer faced off against each other at wrigley. It was towards the end of the year. You were lying. Fuck strap in like this has cy. Young implications buckle up. Let go in the last week of the season if the twins played the indians and it was bieber. Verse majeida like. I'm not circling that. As like i was way more jacked up for giolito versus bieber than i ever would have been for my versus bieber. Well so that you're biased. Kicking in right there. I mean like fucking giolito throw no inter this year you and lick dominant. He wasn't the playoffs right. So i'll tell you right now to my aid is starting today..

"I Dallas you do. You don't have the balls. Do you have the balls to say that. Freddie freeman wins the national league mvp award unanimously. You don't have a boss. I don't have the balls to say he wins. It unanimously and and. That's not. I mean and i honestly. I don't know that i even have a really good reason as to why because a mookie betts. Well then that's exactly what i'm saying. It's because of mookie. Betts is because of movie and doing what he did and now. And that's why i talk about the voting because nobody knew that mookie betts was going to be the peace that actually got the dodgers over the hump and won their world series. Is he that peace now because some of the production in the world series might tell you that he wasn't the the the over the hump factor. Maybe it was getting guys like clayton kershaw to do exactly what he did. Maybe it was getting the performances from earlier so the guy's like cedar doing what he did. Just turner being the guy that he's been. But mookie betts from start to finish made that team just that much better and he did it with the same type of production that you're used to seeing from him plus nine hundred zero. Pse hitting right around three hundred gonna pop you fifteen to twenty in this short season. He did absolutely everything you wanted. Mookie betts to do so while we will celebrate and acknowledge the ridiculous campaign of freddie freeman. It will not be a unanimous decision. Yeah i'm with you. I think but it could be i it very well you tell me freddie and yeah yeah yeah yeah. I agree with that if if you tell me. Freddie freeman wins the nationally p. award in its unanimous. Be like yeah. No that makes sense. But if you tell me mookie betts got some some first place votes mike. Okay i get it. But he was the best player on the best team in baseball. Like if that's your interpretation of what most valuable means than sure. Go right ahead and also. I want to be surprised if if there were some. Random manny machado. First place votes. Because it's like well. The padres weren't the best team in the league. They weren't the best team in baseball. They weren't the best team in their own division. But the padres were. You could argue that without manny's production though that they don't make anywhere near ways and so again placing a definition or the value on that v. What does that v mean to you. How long have been saying that all every year. What is v. media so for the padres. Manny was as valuable as it as it could have gotten for them Mookie for the dodgers important. The most valuable no. I don't believe so no. I was just a stack team. If you and. I think it was like the last episode. I said if you take bets the dodgers they still win the world series. I believe the answer is yes. Is that like a slam dunk definitive like no doubter. Put a bullet in my brain. If i'm wrong. No but i i just believe that. The dodgers were good enough to have won the world series. without mugabe's. they were that good. They were that well rounded there that deep. but yeah so we're okay with We're okay with crowning freddie freeman as your national league did you. Are you agreeing with me. On jose abreu in the american league. Yes well yeah. I want trust me i i wanted to. I mean beeps. Obviously out of the conversation is not even a fucking finalists. Understand that i. I really would love for that to have been. It should have been. I mean that that was my pick. I still think that that's the correct pick. Honestly like i don't like i'm fine with it because he's going to unanimously. Win the cy young award. But i think if you're a unanimous cy young award winner like agree or disagree. Shane bieber was more valuable to the indians than jose ramirez. Okay so if if shane bieber the pitcher talking yeah well. I mean i also. I think that that's a fact. Shane bieber was more important. More valuable to the indians than jose ramirez regardless of the wins above replacement. Whatever so if if that's the final three if it is. Jose abrego dj. Lemay hugh shane bieber as the three finalist in the american league who is the. Mvp out of those three. It's still jose abreu you think so. I think it's still jose abreu and that's just. There's no way that that offense does what they were able to do without him. Right in the middle of it. I just don't see it happening. I just don't because the guys behind him. You know the the utilize in the in the roberts the moncada's ahead of them. Those guys are the ones who are going to be attacked. Those are the ones that they're gonna rather pick their poison with as opposed to you so in that kind of lineup when you're the guy that's going to be pitched around or maybe not give as many opportunities and you're doing the damage. It's it's nowhere near the barry bonds effect. But that's kind of what i'm getting at is that this is the guy that you just do not wanna let beat you ultimately and you're picking him well. He's done that. He's beaten you even when you didn't want him to and that kind of production protects and allows for those younger guys to kind of come into their own and make their mistakes if it's going to be that but ultimately know that. Hey we've got a guy that can actually carry that. Would he hit three sixty three seventy three single now. Am i off tim. Anderson was like up there with like three five. I don't. I don't think anyone came close to flirting with four hundred in the aol. Mayhew history. sixty four. Yeah and then no one else in. The american league was close particular close or not not for the main but yeah i think i think you is tim. Anderson hit three.

"Best. John doesn't matter short season. We'll talk about that too. Because i got asked this question last night about the national national league cy young award someone said what. No max read is a finalist and you got the graham in there. How do you feel about that. I was like hey listen. I said this during the season. I said this way way way before the finalists came out. Yeah you miss time. That's it in a sixty game season that's gonna cost. You like people are going to pass you by if you're if you're on the injured list and you miss a start here you miss a start there so yeah. I have no problem with that. It is in a sixty game set missing missing a start or missing to starts out of the twelve that you may have made eleven or twelve. That's a big deal you like. You made twenty eight starts out of the thirty three you could have potentially made. That's not what we're talking about here. So yes it's almost like a prerequisite to even being available to win. These awards is making each start. If you're a pitch and then you kind of go from there obviously production's going to start taking care of itself but shit like this is exactly. Why like you said you get fired up about award season because you almost are taking issue with how you're deciding who are going to be the people that i get to choose from or the people that we get to choose from that performed the best. It's the process that you get fired up about more so than the actual into result unless it's just an absolutely egregious decision and you're like skews me stopping. Also free agency is underway. We've had some options decline. Some some gentlemen are free agents that perhaps you did not expect them to be free agents this offseason news knowing that we've we've got some. We've got some names. Go down and i don't know that we're going to place them just yet because it's going to be a weird off. It's going to be a weirdo seized in terms of like who spending teams that you would expect to spend. They're not spending. Who's going to take advantage of a wide open market because you know you've got the small market teams that are going to be small market teams. You've got the middle of the pack teams. Where i guess that all depends on. Do we think we can compete in the future. If we're going to spend some money right now then you've got your big market teams. Where some of them are going to play broke. They're going to site cova in and the financial losses of twenty twenty and forecasting losses. Because right now we don't know we don't know if there's going to be fans coming back. Yes we had fans at the world series. But that's in texas texas thinks that it's its own country so you can't you can't say well they had fans in texas and it'd be like well that's that means for sure that they're going to have fans in california and wherever else new york like. That's just not how that goes. It's not a league thing. It's a state shirt is sure you know jerry. That's you just get to pick your science. That's what this world is all about today. Like you pick your state you get to pick your science tune so whether or not that state believes that site you. It doesn't matter so it's not. It's all objective. It's however you view right so with with the covid situation. We don't know what attendance is going to look like. You could have these ballparks. We're we're open to one hundred percent capacity and then you know thirty percent capacity shows up because people don't wanna fucking risk covert and who knows what it's going to look like four or five months from now we don't know so that factors free agency if teams are forecasting even more losses moving forward. So also we don't know what the postseason looks like. We don't yeah that's the other thing too. It's like that's absurd. Things establish right now but is it or is it already established jared or is it already established and they just haven't made it public because you actually believe that teams are making these kinds of business decisions without any idea. What so ever what. The postseason looks like like sit back big of a deal to not have leaked like if there's a general understanding that we're gonna go to. Let's call it fourteen postseason teams because the two best records get a get a by or something. I feel like at least 'cause i remember when we were talking about like the labor negotiations and they were laying all these different scenarios. That shit was leaking every day. And what do we say we were like. We don't think that these are proposed plans. That are actually going to happen. Like these ideas are literally just some guy sitting at a table spitballing to a room like. Hey here's this idea. Hey here's that idea. And then those ideas were being reported as potential rock solid plans moving forward like everything was leaking there so you have to expose rose things to leak. If they're on the table you got to understand the time and place though and what was going on and what role. That information was playing at that time. That was cherry on top of the sunday. Every time you brought that up. That's just another topping on top of this for us to digest during a perceived labor negotiation before the cbi was actually occurring and that was the how many games are. We gonna play the the money situation. The covert situation. That's what that conversation was about. And that's where that got placed into that conversation as just another point of just another topic to talk about during this negotiation or whatever it is well now as we sit here today that is not the purpose and that is not the role that this information is playing in the game at this time. This is information that absolutely needs to be decided and should be decided and should be known so that teams can now do business according to not inform your business group on how they can approach things that seems like a horrible horrible way to go about business. So if i'm looking at these thirty owners or ownership groups thirty organizations. I find it really really tough to believe that they wake up each and every day today yesterday tomorrow not having any idea whatsoever what. The postseason format looks like next year. Because that would absolutely give them an of who they are as a club what they need to compete next year and how they could go about doing that how they could go about securing their position within their division within their leak all based on what we have and what that does for us competitive wise based on who they're letting into the postseason so for them to just not have that information that's laughable to me that is that's just not true. Yeah that's basically like i mean. Yeah we got a test on friday. What's it on figure it out. Don't know yeah remember. Remember these are the same. These are the same people who wanted you to just believe what they're telling you when it comes to revenue instead of showing you what it actually is. That's the same group of people the people who didn't want to open up their books and wanted you to just believe are the same people who are making these kinds of moves right now. Colton wong siu later but we just don't really know what the postseason is going to look like. We're not really sure right now. Fucking right let me ask you this question because i haven't asked you this yet..

"I played baseball. It's kind of like a normal like people getting nervous. That's a great way to describe it. It's like less club like last ability. You actually have then. The like nervousness actually isn't total a lot of nervousness it's how much it outweighs actually do it. And if you know and you just not gonna go you're nervous is going to be because you're gonna hit oral shopping. Yeah it's like it's like buying a house right. If i have a million dollar house and a half million dollars it's like oh i could just buy so. I'm all good but if you don't have that money you can only put a down payment. You're in debt. So you get in debt nervous wise i think for me explain it vegas five and i really appreciate that makes all the sense in the world at scream office since it's so true because i never wanna be with nervous ever again like i. I wanna about a million dollar house every time step on the box now paying cash in cash. it's all just a gigantic nervousness mortgage payment looming. I filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy. Twenty dollars. i. I've seen the tee box and i was like michael scott. I declare bankruptcy. And everyone's just like it's not. Oh where you have to hit the ball trent. When we went to troubadour trend couldn't get the golf ball on the tee. He was so nervous he literally couldn't get the gop on the it. Tell me how much did he was in. That's happened to me twice now. We did it at pinehurst. And then we did a troubadour. I'm always. I'm usually the first one to go and i couldn't get the damn ball and the l. Yeah had a good one but still. I'm fucking nervous. Because i i don't have any gulf ability. I have none of it. So i'm hoping for the best. We'll say at pinehurst. It was a little unfair because kisner knew that that was going to happen before you even tried to i five. He's like oh we can't get the ball in the tee. Trent and your key knew what he was doing. He's seen that programs before psychological warfare. I don't care where you base at right now in lexington. I'm still right now. But i spend. The offseason likes days going the breeders cup so i think we're heading down. I'll be there. I'll be a ambassador for the breeders cup so that happened. Because he's won the world series or was that prior. That's that's been a couple of years. That's where i met dave there two years ago. He's telling a story about it when the whole tight pants thing happened. I guess i like the breeders cup that i like when i him and sat down and i guess acted like he should have known who i was even though he was least things happened. And he's not the one like let that slide. He will let you know immediate one of my favorite stories ever marlins man comes running up to david he's like. Hey dave what are you hang on and turns around and puts the marlins had on it goes how about now and these like marlins. Okay mas man.

"It's almost like the same feeling golf when you're like i'm going to wait for these guys to clear the green before it hit and then you just like everyone around you being like okay. If you're waiting for the two hundred and fifty yard around the trees to let these guys get off the green. You'd better here to get shot and run through seat. You're going to be an absolute laughing stock and then lurches right now. If you're gonna do that you have to at least miss long. He'd just go get another club. Miss long could've gotten them and then on known so the best part game right on the golf course is it. Are you most confident driving putting where where you are now. So when we are in the bubble was chipping a ton just literally on grass to grass. Not no golf course. Because we couldn't we couldn't get on there. But i started feel better with that. I've always hit the ball. Well i cannot hut at all. So that's that's kind of the weak link but yeah. I did a couple of lessons when i first got here. I've been working on some some swing stuff. So we're i'm excited to get home kind of see where we're at then i you know i just don't really know to be honest with you. Always were pitcher. Did you play like a position in high school college or a good hitter. No not well. I mean obviously in high school i played everything but none of it really well so then they kind of took that away from me in college which i didn't really care about to be honest with you always terrible anyway. So but i didn't want homer in the big leagues. I got my one out of the way we can. We can keep the h. I don't care. I got my one. So i ask because like now that i think about it which i've never thought about you. Watch these pictures. Get up there and sometimes you just can't put a swing together. They don't have it and then like but it may correlate not correlate to the golf course like a pitcher pretty regards because he does have been more time more laid back surgery. Thank so i didn't know. If there's a correlate like not swinging as opposed to a baseball players constantly has that moment you know the golf ball doesn't move right so that's why that's why it's the it's the worst game in the world because the the doesn't move so you should hypothetically exactly well you hit at all times.

Yeah it honestly. If we could have went through every single shot you remember those shots for a long time like every single shot unless you're completely sucking in spray in the ball obviously but like if you're hitting the ball relatively good every single shot is a really cool memorable shop they to like you hit up to a green that i guess used to be trees behind it but someone decided like years back. It'll be a cooler view if they took the trees out in a dead and it's an unbelievable right. It's so cool like there's so much thinking that went on into every single one of their holes in like like i always have a debate and we had Brock nelson american hero.

It is because of WHO Justin Turner is and what he represents and how is going on feel without a mask others in at risk and he just basically said. There is essentially no playbook to learning in the seventh inning of a World Series game that your beloved teammate is covert positive. and. There's no way he wasn't gonNA to come out and celebrate. and. That will be an argument for Evermore and it will be a lot. Shall we say easier to swallow post pandemic.

Those are also the kids now kind of grow up and young players are used to having this as part of their baseball experience their school, Minor Leagues, College. But wouldn't that be the equivalent of I guess I don't know. Guys who are pitching now, who would do that right? It's Justin verlander. It's Max Scherzer right? It's those types of players you've seen quarterbacks say don't we're not putting right Philip rivers. peyton manning. It's older guys who have earned it. Will Messina obviously was. Certain Guys Kim, pull that stunt. Not Everybody can but I'd love it. If Blake, Snell done no way. This is my this is my entire. Life right here. You know I've been dreaming of this.

I mean, it's not it's his legacy to. Yeah, he's now forever the guy who got taken out and his team lost the world. Series. And think again, we we are preceded by Dan's show here on peacock I heard his conversation with Michael Wilbon on the way in Dan's right. There's more outrage about Tony Larussa getting the job. In, CHICAGO. Then Aj hinch being brought off of the scrap heap of cheating. In Detroit and did you see the white sox announcing Larussa on twitter? had. A photograph of Larussa with the signet like whether it was kind of like one of those Know. Paintings or etchings or whatever that you see in in when you're buying a card or something, you're buying some sort of piece of memorabilia. It was a photograph of Larussa withdrawing and then the signature. Of Aj hinch was AJ hinch signature because they were also interviewing him and somebody made the fail. Of Putting hinch autograph out until it was taken down and now it's Larussa. Man Aj hinch was on this show and many times I loved our conversations could have been more disappointed about what I read in the report. With The commissioner. And the Tigers hired him. Yeah. It's official press conference later today, and I'll be interested when he's asked all the questions. As. He appeared anywhere. In an interview ever since losing his job and Houston haven't seen him to answer all the questions about what happened. and. You know my question, my one question would be. The commissioners report said. that. The television monitor that the astros used to steal signs. And then transfer that information to whoever banged the trash can. That you. Destroyed one of those monitors. Because you are dead set against this being done. And yet, it's still continued. So was your authority flouted. Or were you just upset because it was used one night? And the information that was related was in. Correct. And thus this system wasn't foolproof and it actually caused your team to lose and you were upset that night because he kept continuing on and if you were in charge wider, keep going on. If you were so upset, you're the one who has told you what in this report? That you destroyed the Monitor. were. You upset because you're authority was being flouted and if so why was it continued on or were you upset? that. You're authority was being flouted and the reason why did you bash the Monitor? Was it because? It actually didn't work one night. If Santiago wasn't did you also use it in the world series? That was one answer we didn't here either baseball never. Ever. came out and confirmed they said, it was use the postseason was it used in the world series? Did you use this method and the world series? Anybody asked to. And Imagine. So I would invite him to come on the show because he was one of those guys who answered every question every question. After you would hammer about the shift. He was still come on come back and so he was all he's all about the shift. Guys what I mean he's all about this shift like no way I'm giving up the shift, the numbers say X Y, and Z in. XYZ usually leads to no runs. No hits no errors. Right exactly. So. How boy? Crazy man I love the game to love baseball. So much I just wish we would be again my conversation with Walker Buehler that's coming up I just wish it would be all about you know the analytics part of it. Yes but.
