"Train's not going anywhere. They messed around with maybe playing him in the outfield. A couple of years ago, But that ain't gonna happen. And so he's over third base. They're going to give him every opportunity to win that job. But if he struggles and you guys know how important this is to have some veteran guys around Starlin Castro Former tub former Marlin He could move over there and play third base. She did both for Miami last year. Howie Kendrick can play some third base, Kendrick you know and how he And Castro can both play second base. So you know there's a bit of a pad there, and if the kid can make a soft landing and just not get his confidence shot and do what we think he can do it the big League level he's not going to replace one of the top And hitters in all of baseball in Anthony Ren, don't but we think we're pretty good. And I have a good future with the trade Turner and Carter Key boom over there on the left side of the infield and not a bad baseball name. Ki boom. I mean, you know, you got exactly get a few home runs, right? And so it's going to be fun to watch him develop. I would think so. We're not going to miss Anthony run down on the night in the National League games. That is, well, he only Barbie eyes against the Mets. What? Two years ago, Eddie and I ain't exactly in D.

Tricky stor from the Washington nationals organization. I also want to state for the record before we get into this episode. As bill simmons from the ringer gets rightfully dragged this week on social media. Not All people from Boston Are Racist Idiots I've never really liked. Bill Simmons always found to be snarky smog and elitist and see a lot of people saying things on social media like he's from Boston. What do you expect? Well I. Don't know about you, but I judge people based on their actions, not where they are from or what they look like. Don't lump me in with that clown because we share an area code. But let's get into something more positive trip. keister is the winningest manager Potomac nationals history. But he doesn't care about that. What he cares about is player development. Since the day we started this podcast I've had fans ask repeatedly. Please get someone in player development. This has been one of my big failures. Todate. I've struck out a lot. And, I've asked in every possible League for player development representation on our podcast. have struck out a lot. Of Likely requested interviews with thirty or forty different people in player development, and resulted in thirty or forty pretty polite. No, thank you. I've had a couple successes. Dan duquette was on earlier this year, and although his main title is GM of the Baltimore Orioles of the Boston. Red Sox and the Montreal Expos, his Real Passion for player development that development of somebody from raw policy to Major League player. We've had on dior geared senior player manager of the NFL PA one of my successes, and if you ask me, one of our best interviews today. And the reason, it's so interesting in such a great topic is because player development is really interesting. Helping elite athletes develop as people serving them so that he can be the best version of themselves on campus or in the minors, and the big time is really fascinating. It's a cool process. As, you likely have noticed. I'm also a little obsessed with the development side of people in general that path from student to professional is fascinating to me. The steps people take to find their true calling and to master their art form the influencers who have guided them the tough love that drove them. The little micro decisions have resulted in massive change. All of this fascinates me. which is why I like. You wanted to have more guests player development. Well here we go tricky. Sir Love this guy. He is a single manager of the Potomac nationals. He's the winningest manager and Potomac nationals history, but you know what it says on his account. They works in player development. It doesn't say manager anywhere doesn't talk about his achievements. Accolades of records. He said anything like that. It says he works in player development. He knows and understands roll. It doesn't say he's the master. Double switches or pitch counts says he's in development of the young men that come through his dugout. And they all do as a manager of the Washington nationals high a team most, if not all of their top draft, picks and prospects start with trip. This again fascinates me about this for a second trip is managing a bunch of eighteen year olds embarking on their future, not just on the field, but often their first time away from home, their first time having to manage their own lives. This makes me wonder. How is trips experience developing these young men, any different than Mike Judge managing the inside sales staff of the Cleveland browns. Is the same. Is Managing people managing people. It's the same across. Is Motivation and technique evaluation and disciplined the same whether you are developing high powered athletes or entry level employees. I found this conversation with trip fascinating and his overall approach to developing young men into really good productive. Success is different for everyone. Some will reach the majors. Some won't but I think they will all look back and remember the influence of trip keister. Let's get into it. Here's my main trip. A trip. How's it going today? Great Brian. How are you I'm doing great. I'm so excited to talk to you. You're one of the first real coaches that I've had been able to have on the show, and before we get into.

How I Built Resilience

"Okay onto today's bonus episode. So as some of you know we've started this new series of online video conversations. Where every week? I talked to a founder or an entrepreneur or just a wise person about how they are building resilience into their businesses. Right now and in case you missed these conversations. When they happen live. We are posting an excerpt. Right here every Thursday in your podcast feed and you can see all of them on our facebook page facebook dot com slash. I built this. Just click on videos anyway. Last week I spoke with six chefs about the impact of cove in nineteen on the food industry. And today we're bringing you conversation with. Jose Andress the founder of world's central kitchen. Jose as many of you know is a Michelin starred chef known for as many restaurants around the country including minibar in Washington. Dc AND BAZAAR IN L. A. Jose is no stranger to giving back in two thousand ten after the earthquake in Haiti he founded ruled Central Kitchen which is a nonprofit that provides meals during times of crisis specifically natural disasters and in the wake of the Corona Virus. Pandemic ruled central. Kitchen has been on the ground serving hundreds of thousands of meals daily to people all over the world. I spoke with Jose at his home in Maryland. Where he's cooking with his family delivering meals and feeding the masses by borrowing some bigger kitchen's like the kitchens at the stadium where the Washington nationals play baseball in Washington DC. I've seen some videos. You outside the stadium then literally delivering food How are you doing are you? How are you staying safe? When when when you're doing that work well listen People as being from the beginning why we do what we do. I mean frankly was Chan is doing close to two hundred thousand meals a day so they will reach three million meals way. The today on this is reality. But we don't do it the long way our organization that we've proven over and over that we can go from is more organization to sometimes the main organization in a in an emergency in Bama's we were the first one on the ground Fed for the NYLAND's eighty thousand today. We were the first one Sundays before anybody else show up here. Obviously America's own is what we belong on to be able to put the know. How of wasn't Kitchen the surveys of federal Americans is the best Moment in that in the way of we wish we were out of business and we had to do it but we Feeding save thousands many of them American people In the British cruise ship we help the government than we went cutting four to help the Governor. Newsom to look the same in Oakland. We knew that this was about to happen. We call it from the beginning. This is going to become a health prices. Obviously everybody's GonNa talk about the economic crisis but above all these may become a big humanitarian crisis not only America but the run the world humanitarian crisis because Latvia foot. So how we do it. We are trying to build restaurants to join. We have more than five hundred restaurants across America. We are adding new restaurants almost everyday. Well why we do it. Because who better than defeat Americans than the same chefs do it in the good times is not like restaurants that are gonna be retiring from what we are able to contribute by. The restaurants are barbed distribution. Their leaders shops. The owners of the restaurants are in their communities. They know their communities better than anybody with partner with local organizations that know the neighborhoods very well so we may be feeding into bronze in Harlem only housing fellows that need our breasts because nobody else is there or all of the southern many angios receiving funding May NGOs. Don't have any more the same luxury of volunteers on the systems that we took for granted are shutting down with forget the NGOs are the third biggest employer in America on. When does India are not up and running this system breaks? We should be super thankful for them. Because they do an amazing opening surveys. So what we're doing is covering the blind spots. We are in more than hundred cities as we speak in multiple estates. I'm always do it. Will we partner ownerships achieves something very simple at three hundred sixty degree response What we see here is how together we can show Congress and the White House what legislation what bills. They have to pass to make sure that we're no wasted fought by farmers no being able to sell it and throwing in the fills or the production. When this time we have many cities across America? Where families are hungry. We're trying to rein smart solutions.

National Guard to deploy against coronavirus in New York, California, Washington

"Well normally at this hearing for the White House coronavirus briefing but that is not going to be until later on this afternoon here's the last that we hear from the president today I'm announcing action to help New York California and Washington insure that the national guard guard can effectively respond to this crisis so what does it look like when the National Guard gets involved we call of CBS news military analyst retired army major my clients first and foremost this these are your friends and family members who are local to these regions this is not authorizing active duty forces to come in from other states or other bases throughout the country this is just local National Guard units that are now been federalized which means the federal government's going to pay for them and now they'll bring manpower equipment stocks and supplies in the old also read the capability to channel into other military assets in order for them to do whatever it takes on the ground there whatever the medical people are saying to do whatever the governor wants them to do there is the likely perform everything from building hospitals to channeling people to help on getting tests and also doing some some form about okay crowd control because there's going to be more people in certain areas now that the police could probably not have dental before so this is actually a good thing I think it you'll see the National Guard once again come through you have some first hand experiences because you lived near new Rochelle right which was actually cordoned off yeah I'm one mile from the epicenter where this whole thing started and we've been pretty much locked down here for the past twelve days or so watching New York City watching the governor here they've been I think you're pretty calm cool and collected all the way through and and people are paying attention so I'm fine unfortunately my neighbor is emerge from doctor he has tested positive for and so it's it's really close to home here right now for for folks the living this region yeah well I mean I got a note from some friends about someone I knew quite well who has passed away because of this so it's yeah it's touching us all so in terms of of the medical response we have a basically a field hospital being constructed the park to handle the overflow but I mean does this are we talking about the army medics taking over case so the hospitals can't handle it how far does that go that's possible not just story they'll be a corpsman from the navy Air Force medics as well and I think what you'll see is ingenuity and that is it seems as though the challenge of this is this ventilators and of getting individuals on breathing tubes to help them recover and so the army's got experience with this from the fighting is the evil epidemic or pandemic back in twenty fourteen so kind of dusted up playbook awful bit and know what to do in terms of how to set these facilities up and now the ingenuity is going to be how they share ventilators until the commercial side until we can get enough for each individual so I know that's one of the things that that I had seen that that they're working on right now so I am gonna bring a lot of ingenuity and a lot of in manpower to the situation right right away no so so how does this work I mean if I feel ill I know to call my doctor but you know I don't have the phone number for the National Guard so yeah at what point do they enter the medical system in a perfect world you won't see the National Guard in till you're possibly into the system you might see a National Guard soldier helping with some of the long lines for example here in New York all the outside testing facilities in your car I've seen some National Guard soldiers helping with some of those traffic situations that's where you'll see the mu you won't call the national guard this is them being used by the government by the civilian authorities in a in a way that that that allows them to put resources into place quickly it without the kind of the bureaucratic tape that usually goes with that deploying a lot of people to a lot of blood different areas so what kind of testing is going on there there's general testing going on now there is more significant testing taking place in Carstairs said what started as the original outside testing center in your shell a few weeks ago now there's one up for example close to west point in Orange County north of here in New York City so it just seems like with doing is they've kind of put a pen in the middle of a map here New York and then they're expanding that testing capability you know really each day it's outside it's because people individuals that are lined up intense and you take the test in your car and I saw the call for still to make an appointment they're still tremendous amount of weight for it in terms of you might wait for a couple hours but you get online you get your appointment and then you get the results a few days later now they're trying to come up with the test to get you the results within forty five minutes to still not there yet CBS military analyst retired army major Mike Lyons that takes us to

Supreme Court Pipeline Fight Could Disrupt The Appalachian Trail

"We're going to spend the next few minutes talking about Supreme Court case and the group that feels caught between the two sides. If it's ever built the Atlantic coast pipeline would run six hundred miles and carry natural gas from West Virginia North Carolina and Virginia. Between Start Finish is a big physical barrier the Blue Ridge mountains and what has become a potential legal barrier the Appalachian trail environmental groups who oppose the pipeline have challenged the legality of a forest service permanent allowing the pipeline to cross the trail. The people who manage the trails say that challenge took them by surprise and they warn the ruling in favor of those environmental groups could up in the trails complicated management structure. Npr's Becky Sullivan explains Do you want to uh. Let's go this way earlier. This month I came out to the spot on the trail where the Atlantic coast pipeline may one day cross. It's about an hour west of Charlottesville right up on a mountain ridge. The George Washington National Forest. The trail is just a dirt footpath winding through trees. That are all bear because it's February from up here you can see out into the valley to the north. I met Andrew Downes a senior regional director for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. That's the private organization that oversees the day to day management of the trail the coordinates efforts between federal and state agencies and the boots on the groundwork of regional groups and volunteers. So the the orange you think that orange flags are marking this. It's it's about in the right area and I've been out here probably a dozen times as we're walking along the trail. Andrew Downes wants to make one thing clear the Appalachian Trail. Conservancy is not opposed to this pipeline. They don't support it but they also don't oppose that's not to say that there aren't direct impacts from Atlanta 'cause pipeline to the show there are our analysis led us to the conclusion that the scope and range of those impacts did rise to the level requiring opposition for one the pipeline would cross under the trail about seven hundred feet underground it would enter and exit on private land off the national forest. You would see a clear pathway around the pipeline off in the distance and if we were standing in True Wilderness Andrew. Johns says that might be caused for but standing on the trail here. It's not exactly wilderness. We're looking at. The view is already dotted with what he calls impacts houses roads fields all sorts of things cutting through the trees below all the visual impacts that we see for the you know this kind of wilderness experience. The best way to do that is for all those things not to exist in this natural enforced in landscape. But the reality is you know. We're here. The Blue Ridge Parkway here people's homes are here and this is part of the society we live in the Appalachian trail. Conservancy runs on this kind of pragmatism. It's part of the deal when you're coordinating multiple federal and state agencies with the effort of thirty plus regional clubs and thousands of volunteers. The conservancy has been doing this work for almost a century so well before the Appalachian trail was brought under federal management as part of the national trails system in the nineteen sixties. But they were not part of this litigation what happens is is people want to stop a pipeline oftentimes for good reasons and they. WanNa use every tool available To do that. The question before the court centers around who is allowed to grant a permit for pipeline like this on federal land because the pipeline would cross the trail in a national forest the four service granted permits the pipeline company. The Forest Service doesn't have the authority to grant a permit across the National Park and though the trail is managed day today by the Appalachian Trail. Conservancy it is technically a part of the National Park. System Noah Sachs is a professor of environmental law at the University of Richmond. He's been watching this case so if in fact the Appalachian trail is part of the national park system then the Forest Service had no authority to authorize this tunneling underneath it for the Atlantic coast pipeline. That's the argument and environmental group. Used to challenge the Forest Service permit the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed and they revoked the permit. The pipeline company has appealed. So that's really the crux of the issue. That's before the Supreme Court on Monday. The issue of on the ground authority over the Appalachian trail has never been questioned in this way before. Trail officials say this worries them because of the way they manage the trail because it causes so many different kinds of lands federal state parks forest even some privately owned land. The Appalachian trail conservancy has relied on decades of precedent policies and understanding. In order to do its work. It's not that it would all come crashing down tomorrow. But Supreme Court ruling could potentially trigger along bureaucratic process if reexamining and reestablishing many of the policies and procedures that have effectively been in place for more than fifty years and that process could disrupt the trails everyday management needs until her retirement last December Rita. Hennessy was the administrator of the national trail system. That's the office within the park. Service that oversees these types of national trails. The Fourth Circuit's ruling in two thousand eighteen caught her by surprise the fact that it was identifying the Appalachian trail corridor as part of the National Park Service. That's what was most surprising that that's not how we have managed the national trails system for fifty years. And is he told me. She immediately worried about the domino effects when I asked how a Supreme Court decision to uphold might affect the administration of the Appalachian Trail and is he reeled off a series of policies that could be thrown into doubt issues of environmental compliance land-management acquiring lands trail maintenance volunteer use. You get the idea. She'll be watching the arguments Monday with some nervousness because any decision by the Supreme Court could change things for the trail you know having worked with national trails for my whole thirty year career and beyond that it it. It's something that's out there that that is just looming and were not sure how it's going to be decided. The trail conservancy says they are already seen complications. From the case they say the four service recently asked them to put on pause every trail maintenance project they had plans that would take place on national forest land. This summer the forest service declined to comment because of the ongoing litigation. The Southern Environmental Law Center is the Environmental Group leading the litigation in response to trail. Officials concerns attorney. Dj Gherkins says the question before the court is so narrow that it will not affect trail management. No one should worry that the outcome of this case is going to affect the cooperative management that has been part of the Appalachian trails success and should be going forward no matter how the court rules. It's not the end of the road for the Atlantic coast pipeline or for the environmental groups who oppose it. The pipeline company is lobbying Congress for a special permit and Gherkins. Group has won several other challenges to the pipeline. That will still pose obstacles regardless of how this case turns out for the trail. This is the big one Andrew Downes with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. There are a lot of organizations who are focused on protecting the environment Litigating broad focused environmental issues and I applaud those folks but there's only one organization the whole world that's dedicated solely to the Appalachian trail and we have to make sure that our decision process reflects that that level of Focus. Because if it's not us that speak for the trail and only the trail in no one else will oral arguments for the case. Take place Monday. The court is expected to rule this summer becky Sullivan NPR

"The Washington nationals are champions of the world friends did you ever think you'd see that having stayed up until four am writing consecutive days so it's a good thing yeah this happened to to injure Miller Corey Kluber a couple years ago and Eh Complaints I had last week about wow earlier this week C. I already Ed yeah everything that we said earlier this week you know back in and we did get to maybe classic is too strong a word but two very either go back to do you guys want to start with strasburger do you want to start the the number little slow roller swinging bunt over to the left side of the pitcher's mound Brad Peacock picks else glove all arrive at the same place at the same time and due to the Pauli exclusion principle right handed batters would have been doing that specific point in time I what was your reaction is as the whole scenario unfolded well listen than chemistry so regardless of what the letter of the rule book states side he was running straight along the line as he intersected with the first base bag he I was happy that this didn't end up being decisive as you wrote on your piece this was a actually more beneficial to the ash chances of winning the game than Alex Bregman homer was regular season game in August I would have thought that it was a strange decision and to I'm going away and I think that ended up being a very good thing for the sport because the amazing things they can do on the field this would have been like an off seasons Ambridge thirty-five years later this is different it's not even a blown call I think everybody but this was just been this the what got me about this is the difference I can live with the strike zone that's a weird shape or not the rule book strike zone as long as it stays the same strict construction EST stance on this and just say hey this is the law of the land the technicalities I think you can make a case that it was the correct call mess you can't even say it is consistently applied consistently not applied in forever and I am also very grateful that this doesn't have too and I hope that this let's as this was happening like the whole review that happened for no apparent reason my initial reaction which US Zach for mine was just oh no I need to look up this roulet the as I read it it's like each preceding sentence just slips out of my mind because news and then we'll all get used to it and this won't be a problem but I'm glad that play so that's something to consider even if it's not necessarily something that control so many times over the past ten years even twenty years that j. Hinch said something like totally see if it was either he rather won the series on this play then lost it the way he did this is not element of that without actually having to deal with the consequences because farce elements between Richaud Tori read verbatim in his post game press conference trade her yelling fire thing Turner just like yelling please let me speak to your supervisor basically just a the next day of course not in the moment but I think he said that he thought Turner should have been safe listen affair foul boundary call a judgment call so S. answered like either it hits the liner doesn't right says question which interfered and so if that's the way the rule is than Joe but it's like like shades of the gold medal basketball yeah I enjoyed the we got this I think put a lot of life back into a series that end up impacting the outcome of the game and Stephen Strasburg who down he allowed two runs in the first inning of game six and never looked back and playoff strikeout-to-walk ratio of eight point eight We should we short of that. It's difficult to overstate how important this performance was to the did I think that was added earlier in the game on the Homerun celebrations pitching coach realize he might have been tipping pitches which is a theme and first who then carried his bat all the way to first base and tried to execute a hand off a tie score after a home run and then one Soto hit another home run to give get that out of the way like that was a perfect example of gamesmanship that getting Bregman back in the exact same way was the perfect kind of jump start the series again which was those two home runs and those two homerun celebrations. It's it's I guess I started writing in Karl Anthony Towns instagram comments these two players in both of those guys have really demonstrated ability to play to the crowd to at this point like unless you're going to have a Jose Bautista Level Bat which with game seven which will get to but when Daniel Hudson got the final out instead of just tossing glove in Soto was perfect I I thought that the Bregman Bat Carey I don't know if that a plate loud than play loud this this did not really oh I still carrying this what what should I do with it I guess I'll hand it to the first base coach Oh he's not expecting showing up the other team grounds so much as I did on just aesthetic not not executing it right yet the nationals really took back the series after right there all right yeah I'm with you Zach I think they to Strasbourg real quick because I think like this has been one of my favorite you got a lower career playoff you're in bumgarner than Bob Gibson than showing attention it's been on you know Max Scherzer I is is definitely be ace of the staff it because I I just don't think that it would have been that defensible choice the nets had better need him being on the mound recording the last out in that dramatic situation Oh Strasbourg go next year and hours immediately going to transition yeah I mean you little more time to savor the celebration and what he accomplished like it's a long off season we try to figure out where he will go and how he will use it so it just yeah well we'll talk about that layer I actually thought you set up a better segue like sorta did something to managers because they're all the plan for AJ hinch which is so weird for him this is like this is not usually like vacuum got out ahead with with Joe Smith and Jose or Keady on man and which has three discreet but related pitching a decision said Iran or series winning home run and decision not use Garrett Cole at all and the last one you know game seven or the world series is a hell of a time to find out if you could do those things by L. and the ashes series and then allow the nationals put distance between has never actually got there so Zach what do you make of of decision Oh boy well I think there are two varieties of using Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning did not expect him to finish the game but they needed earlier one thousand nine hundred thousand four the pitcher for the Washington senators who won that series new phenomenon but in those cases like in Senator Series they were going to extra innings in the seventh inning I don't mind using will Harris there necessarily because as we've are the best relievers in baseball hater in Jackson Chapman but I pitch well and it's not like the bases were loaded there was just a runner on first base so yes weekender hit a ball at three hundred thirty feet that hit the foul and if that doesn't happen Kevin although I know that's kind of the obvious takeaway and all of these situations when a wouldn't be something that we were talking about right now and I feel really sorry for Harris who seems he was you know kind of the the goat in these last couple of games and that's a shame so I walk and that's okay like if this were not the twenty nineteen postseason where for usually especially in game seven when everyone's available so that's okay and then you should probably use him at some point you should probably not will use the world series using six pinches justification as you said was that he was planning to use coal to finish out the like Mike metheny type justification speaking of which congratulations to Mike Metheny I do with how him channel Colon this game we didn't handle call I Houston should have been up by a lot more than two zero after six innings the this was absolutely the Guy to bring in there and like sometimes like you said like this is playoff the guy on the other side who's also really good fire just beats you and that the team lost a world series game I think only one team can win and sometimes yes sometimes colder backstop backing does is it allows hinch to bring in Roberto soon it may winning I thought the the nats could could broken that one open and maybe just hinch that planning he just ended started to fall apart when when Harrison has sooner gave the baby was premature but it was a lock closer to the right time the win would debut Titas poached ninth-inning do we think there's always discussion on broadcasts bat this with runners on base but do we think that actually matters as much as it a few times he allowed runners street basis here he actually was better slightly with men AH necessarily the best excuse for not bringing in a starting pitcher a starting pitcher to put down at jam which is it takes us guys a lot longer to warm up than a shoreline number who knows if the if this is actually actually true or not but it's you WanNa you can minimize and even even one inning closers Ralph I'm sympathetic to the to the argument that you WanNa bring your starter in Davy Martinez didn't have a single he would trust her leave him and if if they were gonNA pull have him throw his get out of the inning and then if he's got another inning and then you I saw the astros ended up leaving ten runners on base in this pictures her was necessarily throwing great pitches to get out of jams he was giving up a lot of hard eh astros jumped to an early lead on darvish that was large enough that it was pretty late in and complexity entirely so I think ultimately it's pretty cool that doc Barton has played with fire all night long and ended up getting lucky he wasn't burned because of what had gone through to get on that mound because of how intense he is kept threatening and threatening and could not quite break through and speaking of hinch mistakes wind is still reeling about that one and that is a case where it wasn't the answer is just error bottom of the second inning Gurriel homers and then there are too hard hit singles it up and there's an easy out just a total gift and I do not know what the thought process manageable cover for the player and Ray yes but that was just inexplicable to me certainly defensible but between that and between the starters going deep into games as they did decision leave Sherzer in is it made the game I I would say the of the ace in a postseason game and even maybe even especially the on by the skin of their teeth like even even when the Astros scored that second run I on the second base when when that always hit and.

"Enjoy the game and and where their emotions on their sleeve. Yes. For one moment. One night a fan wants to believe that they're just like you. They're just like that person on the field, right? Yeah. Which in ninety nine percent of the ways they are like, we are totally normal dudes. You know, hanging out just having a good time happen to be really good at one specific thing. Thank god. It's what I think. God it's pitching. I don't really have anything else. I'm really I always tell like tell people on the least talented person in my family, like three brothers and sisters, and they're always more talented than me. I just happen to be good at this one. Anna wife was way more talented ninety percent of things than I am. I'm the same way at home. My wife is very much the better half. And we were talking before like, I'm I'm so proud of everything that she's she's working on her second masters right now and she set to graduate in may. And I can't wait to see like what she does next. But I like I like I said before to like if I work like three nights a week. Like, you know, I had a busy week. Yeah. So like, I got lucky like I really did like I work really hard to try and maximize opportunity and milk everything out of it. And that's part of the reason that we do stuff in the community because like I'm very aware of the small platform that we have. And we I feel like at least for me like that's a part of this experience that I want I want to capitalize on. And so we try to do some stuff and off the field as well. But I'm just happy to be here. Happy to be glad to be here. And I feel like you do a good job of talking to people when the conversation starts to turn to what player salaries are in this whole labor conversation that we've been having over the last year. So it most times comes back to players spoiled players rich. It doesn't matter what you're planning to kids game. You should just be happy to be here. You should be doing your job. And it's a touchy subject because there are yes, we are making an incredible living chance to do this. If you chance play major league baseball for one day. It's the salary is great even at a minimum level. But there's way more nuance of the conversation than just that. And I it frustrates me. When the conversation stops there. Right. And so you up seen you be able to take that conversation move. It forward move it a little bit past just yet. I know that you can look up you can do go my name, and my salary's gonna pop him which is a weird thing to it's extremely where thing like that transparency. Because. Inevitably every time. I have a conversation about labor issues on social media more than one person in in my mentions. We'll like screen shot my salary, right? And I'm like, yeah. I'm doing really well. Like, I'm lucky to do what I do. But you know, we're also we also are we are very much the product in this in this massive booming industry, and the value that you know, we are collectively bringing we just wanna see that reflected. And I think in in in continuing to have this conversation. It's important to me that yes, the money that we like there are guys with multiple commas in their salary, and and we're not crying poor by any means. And I think as we continue to have this conversation. We have to also acknowledge that this is happening in a lot of other industries in the country. We just saw how many teachers strikes in the past couple of months. The government were. Workers. I mean that wasn't a strike. But like we watched ultimately what brought an end to it was solidarity between transportation workers airport workers, you know, coming together. And and. A credible strike threat that it was essentially ground the country to screeching hall, but acknowledging that this is it's it's happening on a different scale. And but this is happening in a lot of different people are working harder longer multiple jobs for less of a slice of the pie. And I think as we continue to have these discussions, the finances make it that part of it a touchy subjects, but I think too like it's all wrapped up in this idea that like we just want we want the league to be more competitive. We want aims to be more active and inciting players, and and and we think ultimately that will be better for the game. If you have more teams competing for World Series on a yearly basis and more teams China put forward the best product on the field. We think that'll be that'll be good for fan bases. You know, it'll be. It'll create a better experience. So the money like, it can leave people with sticker shock, and that's completely understandable. I'm I totally get it. I mean, Mike trout today as we're sitting here talking. I don't know. I don't know when this AllAire, but this is the day that Mike trout signed a four hundred what was it four hundred thirty four thirty. Yeah. She so I mean, there's money going around. And I don't think anybody is any nobody's denying the fact that there's a lot of money at stake here in major league baseball. It is doing an instrument industry doing really really well. Right. But like any other industry in this country in especially any other unionized industry? There is a constant tension between between owners and workers always going to be in that has been for a long long time. And I think seeing solid area, but solidarity between industries we've been able to see a lot of a lot of breakthrough in a lot of rights for workers being held up, which is is a big deal big deal for workers in this country. And it's hard to consider its it's humbling, but also hard to consider myself one of those union workers at time. Right because the inequity is I mean, it's pretty stark between a teacher makes. Right. But what we stand for is especially when you can argue. That like the impact that a teacher has. Yeah. I mean, it's I mean, many ways it's not even not even remotely close. Right. We have we have we happen to play a game like a couple of nights a week. Right. And so I think like as we as we continue to have labor discussions like I think it's important that like if there are the if there's a teacher strike in a community that you play in or I think we need to make sure that we show that kind of solidarity that we're aware of what fans that are coming to our games are going through what I think it's important to not just signaled that. But like try to learn about it and understand that. So that we can when it comes to labor issues, we can speak like really responsibly on failed to relate is a big deal. I think that there's probably not a lot of let a lot of people on both sides in this league that take a step back minute and say like how do how does this relate? How do we relate to the greater the greater picture here? What's happening in the country? And we've talked a lot about of inclu-. About inclusiveness and about being able to include different communities, but whenever you speak, politically, there's going to be a at least a fifty fifty chance that you're gonna exclude have to people you're talking to. And so how do you balance that how do you balance when you have an opinion politically about saying, am I willing to put this out there, my willing to speak my mind about this knowing that there's a chance that you're gonna piss off half of the people that you're gonna be talking to what I try to do is. I try to make sure that whenever I speak about anything that is considered, you know, remotely political politics kind of infiltrated so much of our conversations in the discourse on social media that sometimes it can be tough to have conversation without it somehow touching or incorporating politics. So I think it's about like. Really like doing your homework to be able to speak on something like thoroughly and responsibly while not, you know, speaking in kind of this, click Beatty headline jargon that you know, relies on like shock value. But like trying to get some nuance in there. And I think a lot of times. That's why people are probably sick of me because like on Twitter a lot of my tweets are threaded like all elevate two three four because like I know that in two hundred eighty characters like I might not be able to get like the nuance. And the context that like I wanna get to talk about whatever it is. I wanna talk about. So like, it ends up turning into like, a tweet thread and people probably muted, me, whatever, I totally get it. But like, I don't want something as as willing as I am to speak on stuff. Like, I'm also like really scared the stuff I say is going to take out of context. So like, I, you know, maybe sometimes I overdo it. But I really believe that at the end of the day that I hope that people can maybe a. Respect where I'm coming from. Because like I'm able to speak about it in a way, that's informed. And I don't know like I'm willing to engage with people. I'm willing to hear what they have to say. And and I'm constantly trying to learn and expand. So I have I might have these strong opinions. But like I'm willing to allow them to evolve and adapt as I continue to learn and hear from other people and game these new perspective. So I think it's about like having what did they have strong opinions that are loosely held? I guess. Yeah. You know, so you so you don't you never totally wanna paint yourself into a corner, which

"And so I was essentially an in AAA from two thousand nine two when I got called up, really. And I saw so many guys that we're plenty good enough to play in the big leagues. Right. But we're blocked by guy that a veteran guy that was maybe making more money than them or. Options. There was like a came down to a numbers game. Or, you know, a prospect got got a chance before they did because they had more money invested in 'em. Like, there's all these games that go on behind the scenes, and I mean, I it's tough lifestyle. And I just don't think that you should have to like sacrifice your dignity or sell your soul to be able to have a chance at your your alternate goal. Whatever it is I agree, and that's leading up to twenty twenty one CBS is going to be over right over and at the end of two thousand twenty one. I I don't know how you feel about this. But I've felt for a while. Now that Myrlie unique voice at the table. Not just obviously there's a lot of things going. There's a lot of economic factors and a lot of history and a lot of precedent that goes into these negotiations, but it really does feel like the forgotten people group, right? And I you're right. I would love to see especially we we just we kind of talked about that statement major league baseball released about. They use the term bargaining with with minor league baseball, and I would love for those guys to have a representation at that table. And I think they deserve it. And logistically, I don't know if how it would work, but they they need to be at that table right now, they're they're doing so much work. They're kind of like the the workforce that props up this industry. Major league baseball that we've seen grow to this ten eleven billion dollar a year industry. Right. And the fact that you know, there there there were lobbyists advocating on behalf of circumventing labor law. So that they could continue to be paid less like that. I don't know that doesn't sit right with me. And I'm glad you know, maybe things are changing maybe letting we're starting to have this conversation, which is a really good step in the right direction. But there's so many reasons on top of that why? You know, we as major league baseball players as people in this game should want them to be paid better. I mean, these are guys that in the future are going to be in our shoes they're going to be up against collective bargaining issues. You know in in in the big leagues hopefully at some point in their career. And like, I don't know. I I just think we need to kind of pay it forward. And and, you know, at the very least use our voice to continue to to help the conversation for sure the guys before us have set the tone for us guys came before us sacrifice and things. So that younger guys who were in the big leagues. Right. Could have some more rights. I think you know, as the league is getting younger whether it's forced by teams for the league younger. Not right. These younger guys are going to have to like you said continue to pay it forward to the guys who aren't quite there yet. I think there is the labor situation in into major league baseball has long been an industry fraught with conflict intention, and it's it's been complicated for a long. Time. Right. And like you said before though, it is growing into a ten plus billion dollar industry. And there are not just players. There are other people groups other industries that are propping this up that are helping us do what we're doing. And we talked about this a little bit online about the workers up in New York. Yeah. The new era workers on York talk talk a little bit about that about your your passion for for those workers at their. Yes. So that started shooting, I guess it was maybe a month ago. My wife, and I stumble across the story of the new era workers in the factory up in derby, New York, which is right outside buffalo. Yeah. She was actually googling our spring training. Hats we have a new spring training hat the design on it is it's actually pretty cool. And she was she googled it to show, a friend of hers online, and and a story popped up about new era. Basically what happened was so new era has a deal with major league baseball too. Make all the hats. And and the deal stipulates that the hats that are worn by the major league baseball players on the field, and the coaches those have to be made in the United States. They've been made at this factory in derby for for over for over fifty years. And they're these are union workers that could pay they get paid living wages, they they have benefits. And I mean, these people have been doing this in this factory for for

"The. Hey, everybody. Welcome back to the twelve six podcast. I'm your host column. Mccue? Thank you so much for tuning in. If you haven't heard all the previous conversations, we've had I suggest going back after we're done here and checking them out because we've had some fantastic guests on this year. We had Garrett Cole all star starting pitcher for the Houston Astros. We had New York Times bestselling author Jeff passan and all star third baseman and budding entrepreneur, Alex bregman. Today's guest is in my opinion, one of the funniest and brightest guys in the league, Washington. Nationals pitcher, Sean Doolittle the work. He and his wife Aaron have done in their time in Oakland. And now in Washington was super inspiring to me, so I've been secretly following him for years on social media. You know, we got to be Twitter friends recently. But this was the first time we got to actually sit down and meet in person. He's super funny quirky and extremely insightful on topics ranging from labor rights to taking care of our veterans at home to Star Wars trivia, he and his wife. Currently supporting an organization called operation finally home based in new braunfels, Texas. Their mission is to build brand new homes for returning veterans giving them a home and a place to start transitioning for military back to civilian life. It allows them to go from serving their country to serving their communities as seamlessly as possible. Their stories are amazing, and you can find out more at operation, finally home dot org. Today on the podcast. We talk about Shawn's legendary transition from power hitter to all star reliever. How respecting the game is changing twenty nineteen and which Star Wars movie is best as always if you're not subscribe to the podcast, make sure you do that. So that you're all caught up when you air without further ado, I hope you enjoyed today's conversation with Sean Doolittle. First of all, thanks for being on the podcast. I appreciate it. Man adamy. You're the second non Astro guy on the on the podcast, you're breaking ground. But I'm the first player without a World Series ring. You're opening it up. That you know, we try to kit it all audiences non ring winners future. Ring winters. Yeah. That's this is great. I'm really happy. We got to do this. We're down here in West Palm Beach and works out perfectly because we're both here at the same complex season. Yeah. Didn't getting real close. But go back. You are from New Jersey. Correct. South jersey outside of Philly. So you and Mike already boys jersey voice. Yeah. He's still reps. He still arrests out jersey. I think he's got he's got his area code eight five six on all the trout shoes this year. So really? Yeah. He reps jersey, really hard. And you know, I after I left for college. I really haven't spent much time back there, you know, him and like maybe Todd Frazier. They're like, they're the jersey shores there, the jersey boys, you know. So you went to school in New Jersey and grew up high school, New Jersey. Yeah. Play baseball there, which I didn't know I probably should have known this. But you were first baseman and pitcher, right? You've both. I did both. And that was a big reason why ended up there. I maybe I was stubborn coming out of high school. But I wanted an opportunity to pitch amply position college. And I took a number of visits. I took four official visits, and it came down to Virginia because they were school that was going to give me the opportunity to pitch and play first base or or outfield when I wasn't pitching. So it worked out. It's weird. How it worked out because both of those things really came in handy down the road. So. I'm glad I ended up there. I got to you know, Ryan Zimmerman my teammate right now, I was a freshman when he was a junior. So I got to watch and learn from him when I was in college, and it's really cool that I get a chance to play with him again. Now. Right. That's cool. How things kinda come full circle at the the funnel gets real small, and like you've played with or against just about everybody in the lease balls a small world anyway, but you know, sometimes those connections, you know, he was such a big influence on my career at such an early point. You know, when I was in college. And now, you know sharing a locker room with him every day. You know, he's the face of the franchise was the first overall pick of the, you know, the nationals once they move back to DC and to see what he means to that city and that team it's just it's it's really cool. He's putting some serious work there. He took me way back. Second homer. I ever gave up in the big leagues was to him. And he hit it into the apple instead incident field end of the apple and the apple came up. It was like it was making fun of me as it was coming out as mocking me. Nice pitch. Said there's this wonderful gift of me turning around. And just right into the center field camera zooms into my face, no way. And it just all the expletives come out of my mouth, my dad's saw it. I remember like today's later, son. We're going to talk. A Homer the big leagues. And then we'll talk. All right. How about that? Yeah. But you were a great hitter in high school in college. And you got drafted as both your the original Shohei Ohtani file now I just got drafted as a hitter actually hitter just as a hitter better. Yeah. I was drafted as a first baseman by Oakland in two thousand seven and. I they moved me. I started playing outfield as well. But man feels like a long time. There's not a lot of guys that saw it. Fortunately, I did play with Macs. When I was a hit max Scherzer I played on a fall league team with him one year when I was a when I was a hitter still so he seen it a little bit. But it's weird how it's taken on like like mythical proportions the further removed. I am from that part of my career the more. It was like you should have seen this guy man like he used to hit like five hundred foot homers, and I was like. She'd been there. I was really good. But you know, unfortunately, like, I started having some injury issues. I was drafting no seven I was in AAA and nine and I started having had two major knee surgeries, and ultimately attendant in my wrist. And I missed I missed three essentially three full seasons in the minor league. Yeah. And the
