Tyler Bowyer of Turning Point Action Unpacks Last Night's Elections

"I'm joined by Tyler Boyer. Runs turning point action is a great job. He's also the committee man for the state of Arizona. He were up to like 5 a.m. last night. It was a long night, but it was a fun night. Boy, there's a lot to unpack, but let's start with just the top line news. First, let's go from east to west. Michigan Tudor Dixon won, two open doors. Very exciting candidate. Yeah, tutor, we actually know pretty well. She's actually been a big supporter of turning point for a long time. So we're really excited to form a rap host. Former Rafa's wonderful. And yeah, I think that you saw some of that carryover too. I mean, Michigan is a Trump state. Clearly. Because John Gibbs. This is the other one we want to talk about. We had absolutely on if you looked on paper 20 years ago and you saw a candidate like John Gibbs, you'd be like, the guy has no shot, right? Yep. And today it's a different world where the electorate is paying a lot more attention. And Peter Meyer and his whole gang of like just do whatever you want and don't care about the Republican Party. Those days are over clearly. Well, they are over. He lost. Yeah, and so Peter Meyer and voting for impeachment. Super snake. It's more than that though. I mean, some people are talking about, we'll talk about Meghan McCain's tweet today. We'll get to Arizona. We're going to get to what we'll get there, but the establishment, what they don't understand and what they are really dealing with right now is they haven't worked with the Republican Party for years. They haven't cared about the Republican Party. They haven't cared about the grassroots. And what we're seeing is this whole revival of this real grassroots movement, something that you saw, you know, like in the 70s, really start to cause the Reagan revolution. And I think that's where we're at right now,

Democrat Wolves in Sheep's Clothing With John Gibbs

"And there is a great candidate running against Peter Meyer, who, by the way, some of you might not live in Michigan, some people might not even been to Michigan. Some of you say, I don't really care that much about Michigan, we should. Michigan is a great place. But I will say this, you should care about getting these impeachment voters. Out of line and better candidates in place, and the man running against him is John Gibbs, who's terrific from western Michigan, he joins us right now. John, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, thanks for having me on. It's great to be able to spend some time with you today. Likewise, tell us why you're running and tell us what is your message against the snake Peter Meyer. Peter Meyer betrayed everyone in our district. Bayes after being in Congress find literally days in there. His first vote he takes is to impeach Trump. People put in their sweat and their tears and their money to Peter Myers campaign helping him win just as you guys did, Charlie, and he was saying all the right things. People thought he was a real deal. When he got in there, just a few days after he really backstabbed everyone. So he is not providing leadership. He is not representing the people that voted for him. And so I felt that I needed to do it. I wasn't planning to. After serving our time in the Trump administration, I was maybe going to work for a think tank and be out of the spotlight for a while, but some of our friends from our former White House said, dude, Peter Meyer voted in Peter Trump. You should go back home and run against them. So I decided to pray about it, think about it, get my ducks in a row. It's jumped in head first. It got president Trump's endorsement. Got doctor Ben Carson's endorsement who I worked under in the Trump administration and said, yeah, we really need to do this. We really need to provide leadership for the good people here in west Michigan. There's not getting it right now under Peter

"Build the class A now the advanced a affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. What does that do? I was gonna be my first question with the elevation now flip flopping with Lake Lyn and be in the high A, which the next step now would be double a theory. What does that do for the talent pool in terms of what people will see on the West side of the state? When the white caps play in 2000 and 21? I think they're too ripple effects from this number one. You know, A couple of years ago, the Tigers took Casey minds of the first overall pick out of Auburn, and he never saw West Michigan. He was put Immediately in class advanced A and I think had spent so Torkelsson been able to play a normal minor league season. This year. The Tigers probably would've started him in the same place. So with that in mind, I think going forward there won't ever be a situation where a Tiger's draft pick, especially a high draft pick. Won't get a chance to play in West Michigan. So that's the most exciting thing from a Helen perspective, But I think on top of it, I think this just puts West Michigan In the consciousness of many more tigers fans on the east side of the state. You know, of course, you know you, you get it the West side of the stage. We all understand what the white caps means to this community. But in terms of the East side, I think we players go to West Michigan, and they do well, they immediately and some fans, eyes get dropped into this black hole. That is Lakeland, Florida. And we can't watch their games. We can't see them play all we get to go off of our box scores so now because the next stop after West Michigan is eerie, I think the second somebody gets to West Michigan. Now the stakes just got a lot higher. And if you do well in West Michigan now, I think that lends your chances to be a good major league player. I think that increases tenfold, so I think there's a couple of big reasons why that matters. That reason is also the Tigers front office can make the two hour drive over to Grand Rapids, and they could watch high draft picks or guys. Or on the cuss because they've always said this and going back to when my brother was a second round pick by the Brewers and 84 that if you get two double a chances are you're going to be close to getting a shot one day in the big leagues. And you know what? There's been many people that have said this. Here's my name drop for the day. Jim Leland. I want to ask him. I said, What's the hardest jump in the minor league pain? And he said, it's from high to double it. Because if you can play a double eight chances are you can play in the big leagues. So, yeah, I mean, essentially just getting in to have success it high, eh? Of course, improves your chances to have success that double a So you know again. I think you're gonna see more major leaguers and I think more impact Major leaguers make their way through west Michigan, Man. If your elevator on the Tigers you got your triple A until Edo with that great facility, Eerie thought to keep Double a tiger baseball there and they did. And now you elevate West Michigan in the Midwest League basically goes high ages like the great legs. Loons went high. A with Their parent club, the Dodgers and the Oakland A's now partner with the Lansing lug nuts in the Midwest League, And then you know Lakeland could become your lower A and your extended spring training whatever you want to do with draft picks or guys who are rehabbing and We're also going to get into that. 2000 and 21 start date where Major League baseball and the Players association going back and forth that The ownership once vaccinated players before spring training. They don't want to start until May. And my question is Dan. How does that affect the minor league chain for the Tigers and across baseball? I wouldn't be surprised if minor league Baseball also started a little late. I could see, you know, Then there's been some talk among the new agreement with major and minor league baseball that the season may go down by a couple of games, and there may be a few more off days built into the season. But you know, and you've seen this on, you know, in West Michigan. There's been a lot of games early in the season that can't be played because whether it's just too big of a factor. I mean, you've got 345 inches of snow on the ground. You can't play for three days. So I think moving the start of the minor league season into possibly May May, 1st May 15th and then playing into you know, deep into September makes a lot of sense. So if Major League baseball ends up jumping on that that train is well wouldn't be completely surprised. I noticed that They took their schedules down. A lot of the major league teams took the schedules, and I think that's still very much up in the air, whether it be spring training or the regular season, But I think overall, I think you're going to see a pretty big move. Into May, at least on the minor league side and again, it wouldn't it would make sense to do it in the major leagues. That as well, Yeah major leaguers are talking about. It's all early discussions. 140 game schedule. Players will be of active are vaccinated before spring training, and then you know, I assume if they're gonna have vaccinations for their major leaguers, chances are they'll do that for their minor league players and I'm thinking that mid May that Memorial Day weekend starting you could play until the end of September. Weather will be fine all across the Midwest League, then and all across minor league baseball and baseball did learn that there. Or later start and this is interesting in the pandemic shortened season and by the way, Dan Hasty voice of the Tigers class a pharma filling the West Michigan whitecaps joining us on the draft Kings guests sign Looking ahead to 2000 and 21 with the Tigers. There. You miss Baseball like opening day back in March, April, But then there was a phase where you really did miss it. And then when summer came you wanted baseball and you got it late. And I think baseball has learned something about their long schedule 162 games. I think they've learned something about fan interest because they did it without fans. And you saw the TV numbers very strong when it came back, so I believe not only in the middle of this pandemic, I think Rob Manfred and Major League baseball owners, maybe even the Major League Baseball players Association Dan They're looking at changes. Possibly that could be permanent and better for the game. Yeah, I think this is the time to do it. I think considering you know how much the apple cart got shaken up in 2000 and 20. I think if you're going to make any Sweeping changes, I would say now is the time to do it. You kind of got the sense that last year this year I should say 2000 and 20. Anyway, you know, the universal designated hitter, you know, they wanted to give that a shot, but they wanted to see how that looked, and I think they're kind of just the tip of the iceberg. I think they're going to try. Ah, lot of different things. You know, I don't think it's out of the question. Just think about, you know, and we see this in some other sports right now. He's seen it in the embassy preseason. We've seen it in college basketball to start the season, consolidating. Series, where, essentially instead of playing a three game series against the You know, the Cleveland baseball team that I guess they're giving up the Indians name, but you know, instead of a.

There's a dude ranch about an hour north of Holland called the Double J. Double. J was a Jack and Joe Ranch and golf resort and I was the equestrian director, therefore worked there for 11 years. And so that's what brought me to Michigan. But I'm originally and went to school in Columbus, Ohio, Esso I'm a true blue Bukka living in West Michigan. That's amazing.

"L. So came yesterday We talked about in California and it was just really did forget maybe was Wednesday. We talked about California and they had a problem with unemployment claims that were being paid out to people who didn't do. You shouldn't be getting them People like incarcerated murderers and rapists. And, um you know, famous serial killers and things like that that are residing. In California, and so they crack this thing. And what happened is that some of some of these people use fraudulent. There were social Security numbers that didn't exist. There were names. Someone even got a claim, and the name that they submitted was poopy bridges. And it went through, and it went through. Yeah. Ruby Bridges got paid. Yes. Well, not to be outdone, Michigan said. Hold my beer, and they decided that they were going to pay out more than $1.5 billion in claims without checking any of them for fraud. This is Fox 17 in West Michigan reporting. The report alleges that former U A director Steve Gray, who since resigned, said on a staff call that fraud prevention was not a high priority. But those issues were never escalated to higher ups in the agency. The assessment found that the U. S. A also worked with third party vendors toe hire people to look at the claims but did not perform background checks. If they did. They were not reported to the agency. And this is why I get so angry and the left says what? President Trump has a war on Blue states? No, he doesn't want to bail you out for stupid stuff like this. This is why it's easy to be irresponsible when you're spending other people's money and under a socialist system like we have where the states pay into the federal government, and then the federal government real lots of that money. Us. It's like California and Michigan and some of these other blue states that can just give the money out to poopy britches because it's not their money. It's some poor guy in Iowa who's working hard, Some farmer, it's his money, and then they're going to come with their hands out to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and want to be bailed out for billions of dollars. And they're going to blame Corona virus And if we don't give it to them, How could we, you know were terrible, horrible people. But there's no accountability. Trump wants to make them accountable for the the stuff that they pull, like, not checking it. Claims are fraudulent enough. Yeah, and the fact that you know the head of the unemployment insurance agency in Michigan and step down. Um e. I mean, just the idea that he would say that investigating fraud is not a priority. Well, why not? It should be on do you know? Look, I mean, I know that this goes back to a time. Thankfully, our unemployment rate has declined. But you look back in March in April, when there were a staggering number of Americans who are out of work. I understand the need to get That unemployment money into those people's hands. But the problem is, if you're not checking for fraud, and if you're not going after those who are committing fraud, then you're actually prove. Not only are you wasting taxpayer dollars, but you're preventing people who really do need that money who are eligible for that money from actually getting it because remember Mary the problems that people had simply getting Hold of the unemployment agency simply going through the process of applying. So you think about all those folks who needed that money couldn't get it. And meanwhile you've got, you know, poopy bridges going out in applying and getting this cash. This is absolutely outrageous, but unfortunately, it really seems like there is, you know, one party and only one party right now who really cares about good government watchdog spending. On making sure that your taxpayer dollars are actually being spent wisely and where they should be going. Yeah, and in the sad thing is, Askew said Blue states and there will be no accountability. The head of the Michigan unemployment insurance agency who resigned Steve Gray, Um where's the accountability for him? Well, he well, he still get a pension when he's still get taxpayer funded money, Probably He didn't do his job, and there's no accountability for these people not doing their job. Can you mention if you worked in the private sector and you misappropriated $1.5 billion in claims for a company, you'd be in jail right now? Cause you didn't do your job and you allowed that to happen. You would be in jail. But we reward them with a nice pension that they can sit back and collect on the taxpayers back.

It's just a charge and they say a plot to kidnap and you gotta remember that are they trying to kidnap because a lot of people are angry with the governor and? They, want her arrested. So are they trying to arrest or was it a kidnapping attempt because you can still Michigan if it's a felony, you can make a felony arrest and I think it's MC l. seven, six, four, point four or something like that point five somewhere on there. And it doesn't say if you're elected office that you're exempt from that arrest. So. I have to look at it from that angle and I'm hoping that's more what it is. In fact, the these guys are innocent till proven guilty. So I'm not even sure if they had any part in it. Okay. The men arrested that he was one of whom he was in a picture with at a rally appear to have been embedded in a larger movement both online and in real life of extremists that have been targeting the governor Michigan. NBC. News reporter Ben Collins has a piece today that explores all of those connections and he joins me now ben I I just want to get your. Reaction I mean that you know the sheriff saying look maybe they were just trying to make a citizen's arrest and actually that's fine because I've looked at the state law and the State Law says you can. It doesn't matter if you're elected official was a little striking but made me think that maybe this was something that had been in the discourse among the kinds of people who've been protesting the governor. This people 'cause play as going to kidnap people all the time. It's hard to know when exactly they're serious they talk about this frequently in fact, in these texts, they didn't just have a vague plan to arrest arrested personally citizen's arrests are, which is also home. Alicia thing in driver Wisconsin where they thought you would have a trial and another guy said, hey, why don't we just go to our front door shooter? That's the sort of rhetoric that they were talking with. This was that guy is not correct is not a living in reality with the rest of us because you know he he has a compatriot, they're basically in these militia movements are trying to not just organized with each other but organized with local police to create a a a movement with within themselves. They do this on social media do this real life at these rallies it's very dangerous and something that we're seeing constantly authored the essays. Yeah, there's been. There's been real alarm bells rung about sort of the the law enforcement and extremists. Intermingling or extremists inside law enforcement the at a piece about the oath keepers which is. One of those groups, what are you? What have we learned about these these individuals who are who've been accused and charged in this particular case and what they're kind of worldview was. Sure. So there from a hodgepodge of various different militias, conspiracy movements that happened on the Internet now. There's an umbrella term for this called the Bugaku. Now out, the Google comes from a fortune meam or ten is an extremist website in the boo blue comes from the term civil war to electric Google sounds like a joke sounds very funny or whatever. It's not. This is a very serious thing. militia movements have used this to recruit in these extreme spaces and on facebook as well and they take people who are just like gun communities or a libertarian communities in try to gain the algorithm to get people into these spaces. So a couple of these people were seen wearing Hawaiian church. Google blue outfit. If you will two of them were actually at this liberate Michigan protests that happened a few months ago. The president tweeted liberate Michigan. Then there were these people on the you at the capital. Two of those people were at that exact. So. This is a real life movement. It's an online movement in certain converging right now. Look Chris. I think, let's say the quiet part of your worries. This is not going to go away in in November and December it's going to get more and more dangerous in the more people you talk to who are extremism researchers realized that it's at fever pitch right now people are ramping up very excess. So we're all very scary. Frankly we're we're in this purgatory were about to see things really hoping we're we're not about see things happening, but they keep talking about it in these in these faces thankfully now, they're going to be some arrests.

"So the first category is presentation and appearance. Power. They played it What they played it in. Do they fit in it? Do they spill out of two. Phew! That was pretty subjective for that appearance is second part of that category. How do the onion rings themselves? Look Are they patchy? Are they hand breaded? Are they clearly machine made Because of the uniformity to it that you can't get with him Breading. Next one is probably an obvious one taste have they taste Usually, it breaks down to three components, the breading in the batter the onion itself, and then whatever dipping sauce they might have. Third category is texture, which I think is the most underappreciated aspect of any onion ring. How are the onions are mushy. Are they too hard too soft to the onion slip out from beneath the batter? Something I called slippage? Meaning that they're not meshed well together. The last one is probably a little unconventional when you're talking about food reviews, but it's one that's very near and dear to my heart as as a thrifty Dutchman. Those who know West Michigan know how true that is value. Is what I paid for it worthwhile, And that's not the same thing is cheap so they could be expensive and a good value. All these things are proxies for all those aspects of the restaurant. I think values but the biggest one I think the best kind of onion ring depends. So in my experience, onion rings that are good tend to be thick cut, so they're wide and they're tall. They tend to be in a liquid batter and then fried rather than breaded, obviously handmade. I think it goes that saying, I've noticed Mohr good ones at places like BBQ restaurants and bars rather than like fancy places. I think barbecue restaurants tend to be one of the weird concentrations of very high quality onion rings. But the best one and I'll say this upfront. Chico Japanese restaurant in Austin, Texas, serves temper a battered onion rings. What were unlike anything I've ever had and blew my mind. I think we need to have his good flavor in the batter a liquid batter and thank God on your rings and then a perfect fried time to unleash the crispness of the batter and just enough juice from the onions. To not let the machine We've heard about the good Now let's hear about the bad and ugly. So I like to try it out this Basquiat quote.

"Think that's voice in radio by man. Thank you so much. I listen to you every chance I get. And I happened to catch you today. And I gotta tell you, I'm from Grand Rapids. Michigan. I did not the rally. I did not get in. Yeah. But I watched as much as I could on TV, and the one thing that I've noticed the one thing that bothers me about the rally. Have you perfectly honest is I see all the all these red hats in the crowd, all these shirts and all this Trump stuff. Right. And I I gotta tell you. I wear my red hat my mega hat four or five days out of the week. I have not seen one person in west Michigan. And I travel all over west Michigan. I have not seen one person wearing a red hat out in public. For those who don't know west Michigan. Generally, speaking is read it's a conservative area. So that's surprising that that people don't. But I I mean, I gotta be honest with you. I don't wear my now about award on my show and was called a racist for about a week. But I'm proud of you you should be able to wear it. You've got your first amendment right to where that had. So you're saying more people should be wearing it. We have to stop the the the right the right? The conservatives have to stop being so frayed and and stop being brainwashed into believing that what we wear and who we support is racist or wrong or evil or in any way, bad. I've had a couple of people that I know had had conversations with accuse me of that and isomer rejected. I won't I won't engage with that bull crap. But people prayed to wear the hat because it's not that there is a hold on. But hold on. It's not really the media. The people are afraid to wear the hat for reasonable reasons. Think about it. You got a teenager in San Antonio, not far from where I am had the hat stolen off his head had had a soda thrown in his face yet. A woman wearing a maga- hat egged. Now, they should not be able to shut down our ability to express ourselves how we want. But if you have a choice of I might be hassled today because of my hat or I could use not wear the hat. I can understand why logical reasonable people would say am I going to wear the hat. Now, you've got a lot of gumption, and you've got your you're a brave guy. And you don't care somebody gives you a hard time. Look, I support you. I praise you for that. But at the same time, I can understand why good conservative American values. People don't want to be hassled every day or don't want their car keyed or don't want eggs thrown at them. I get that. I do too. I honestly do I just wish I saw more people out there who were a little bit more open in their beliefs. We're so free to speak up and could be called racist. And I know what's out there. I don't know that it's out there as much because to be perfectly honest, I've had some dirty looks but not one person. And again, I travel all over west Michigan. Not one person has ever confronted me and said anything that I've had a couple of conversations which I'm open to the right is even the the the congress and the Senate. Prayed to to to really stand up and do something besides Trump. He's on his own. You don't have the Republican leadership really falling in line with Trump. And I know he's not perfect by no means. Yeah. Why do we have to be so afraid why can I see more hats off? I do get your employer. You know might be upset, and you gotta be careful to a degree. But when you're on your own in public on your own time right waving a flag. I'm just wearing a hat. That enough. Listen, I hear you Robert. I think you make good points. I know that you understand my point that people in their general life don't feel like, you know, being hassle just because they have a hat on. I think that you pick your battles. And if I'm on the way to work or you're on the way to the grocery store or you're doing something else out and about in the public. The last thing you need is a bunch of people giving you crap though, the people giving you crap would be the wrong. But it doesn't change the fact that you're being hassled it's one eight hundred five zero one seventy eighty joepags dot com. We're coming right back. Stay here. One thousand. Okay..

"That was I think fifteen games under five hundred in the second half. Because we got all these new guys we go in and. We play west Michigan because we'd won the first half we had home field. So we went up to their place and one came back and lost. And then we play game three and we won. So now Great Lakes comes in. They're the best team. They were one game behind us in the first half and they won the second half. So they were the best team in a league all year they've got home field. So we play the first game here, and they smoke is pretty good. So we go up to Midland with. I've got no hope because I'm thinking I'm just gonna drive up because I, you know, bus ride back buses income just gonna drive up. So why drive what we win the first game? All right now, we're even so this is good. We win the second game somehow and now through the four year of we want it. We're going to the finals, I realize I need to drive to Clinton Iowa that night. Because we had an off-day because of rain, so we're playing the next night in Clinton Iowa. So after that game in Midland Michigan get in the car drive to Clinton Iowa. And we won the first game lost the second game in eighteen innings. I think I was on the air for six hours. I think doing that game from Clinton, and then we had then then I'm realizing now not now not only did we lose his heartbreaker. I gotta drive back to Cleveland from Clinton. I once I drive back through media that day. And then we play lose the next game win the last game in front of, you know, not, you know, the playoffs draw that much, but but the fact that. A team that I followed in my lifetime one something big. You know, I got a big old honking ring to prove it. That was really cool. Ted kubiak was our manager who's got three World Series trophies at his house. He was on the seventy two seventy three and seventy four as you know with Reggie Jackson enjoy being catfish. And all those guys he was our manager and teddy was like sixty eight or sixty nine years old. So he'd been around the block men in baseball his whole life. He he was so emotional after that game you've thought he'd won the World Series. I mean when I saw the impact on him, and what that meant to him that those kids were able to suck it up and somehow win this thing it was as good of any. He said it was right up there with the with the World Series is because it was just a obviously he's a manager and things of that nature. But that was pretty emotional after that game was really cool Sam. Yeah. It was really neat thing that we have a. I guess I just give you the old regular question. How's the team? Look this year houses squad. Look, I have no idea. Giving you yet. We'll we'll hopefully get some some maybe a little they'll they'll usually try to send us a list. I asked him for a list of thirty or forty guys that might be on the team the try to get that in March. So that we can start doing bios and get our get our ducks in a row and then. We'll get the us. They come in on the Sunday before the season starts. So that Saturday will usually get a list of here's the guys on the plane, and I've met the bus driver at the airport gone through. All right. Make sure but he's there. I mean, the managers there sometimes managers there, and sometimes they're not the trainers usually there because guys are driving cars and things of that nature. But I mean, we've got that list on Saturday and I've gotten to the airport on Sunday. There's two guys that were supposed to be on that flight that weren't two different guys around there. So I mean, you don't know. But you know, they and a lot of it has a lot of it is they've they've got him pre slotted. I'm sure, but you know, injuries or guys perform a lot better than say or an injury to higher level. So now, this guy's gonna start in Lynchburg and not start here or stay in Arizona. So there's a lot of factors in there. But yeah, we don't know we really don't ask if we'll be back. I you know, what I don't know much about it. But just based on the performance last year, and this is a lame entice like when I talked to the Indians about, hey, what are you? What are you? Got on this guy. I'm like, dude. I'm just a guy that sits in the booth and talking to myself. I I see enough baseball to be dangerous, you know. But I'm, but I would imagine because of his age and in the way he played last year that he there's a very good chance. He would be back this year. But again depends on how the off season went if he made some strides in winter ball or things of that nature where they think. Okay. You know, what he's turned the corner. And they wanna move him up. The thing that he's got going for him is the same thing that when Linda was with a skit youth these kid, so they don't have to shove him out. I mean, they got a nice team at the big league level right now. So they don't need to push him any faster than he needs. They don't have to rush him. If he's ready. They'll move on. Don't get me wrong. But they don't have to necessarily do that. So I I would think that he might be back. But again, you just don't know there's a lot of moving parts around those players. You know depends on what sometimes your opportunity is based on what other guys do or don't do. Then you may get a better opportunity or worse opportunity at that point. Because of the people around you zapper answering nothing. That was awesome. Thank you. Glad you said that because one of the things that stick out my mind, lease and Myrtle Beach was when I was doing the PA announcing there, and we hosted the mud cats and two young gentlemen, happened to come in by the name of franscisco endure Tyler Nathan, and here, I am in two thousand thirteen and everybody knew us from Cleveland. They used to eat me up about it. Because that's when the Indians were not very good at your. But I said these guys watch how quickly they go up and lo and behold, I mean Tyler is doing okay. But I mean Lindores on might be one of the is close to be in a face a major league baseball. I think it's really that is really really cool. And he was so good when he was here because he was the youngest player we'd ever have come through at that point when we had them and saw him, and I spent the whole summer together when they were home because media requests after media requests on fending off people that I didn't. I said, you know, I got this. I'm thinking you ought to do this in this. What are you go? Okay. That's all he was really good. But I got to lift the bag and put it on the bus may did not play that. I I. Ron carter. We've had some guys do that. But one of the and he was good when he got to us some. But you could tell the game is a little bit quick for him. He made some throwing errors early. It was of course, it's twelve degrees and we're playing, but but I think sometimes he get the balls and look go my gosh. This guy's really fast. Right realm airmail in it. But the one guy that came through all those years, I call those games the one guy that I saw and it took me about a game. I looked out in the outfield and Bradley Zimmer home God is the best guy. I've ever seen come through. I mean, we had we had Mike pappy on the team that year. We had think Clint Frazier is on the team that you're naked might have been at one point. We had three first rounders on the, you know, they come up with the playoffs and everything but Bradley's ever was the one guy that when I saw him play. I went I see it. I can I can act as a dumb radio guy. I can actually see that. I see what I'm seeing. So. Yeah. I I've high hopes for him that you know, he got hurt last year. And maybe that'll calm him down a little bit. Like, look, you can't be Grady Sizemore and be superman wreck your body by the time, you're thirty something because of your reckless abandon brain. So hopefully, this injury will get in his mind. Okay. I got to be there. But let's not be crazy and attend to one game and crashing into walls or dive in and things like that, you know, Craig dis from the lake. County captains, thank you so much..

"Theory. But that's not proven either. Okay. 'cause I was just wondering is there. Eligible hook up. It was like. Oh, yeah. League or over-extension power range or anything like that. And the reason I ask is because it was better. In west Michigan and years ago. Where a restaurant owner illegal wiring. I started a player down the whole corner. All this y'all. And. Charges. Of arson basically hired his cousin illegal hiring. Well, I'm sure the wiring in this house was not code wasn't Edward. It certainly wouldn't be today. The the accusation was for the first year of the investigation the fire investigators said that deliberately overloaded extension cord had been placed to start a fire. But then how many people would know that? Yeah. Well, here's the problem with that theory is that that was what they based their entire case on until they had an electrical engineer and look at the wiring. He said didn't start any fire just no evidence. And that was that was the basis for their entire case wasn't it. It was. So then they turned around and said, oh, okay. The wire didn't 'cause it was a failed incendiary device. And then she started the fire with a batch right in the spot where that wire supposedly caused the fire now, they say, oh, she he must have started it by hand because there's no other way for the fire to have started. That's that's a approach. That's fine. Firefighters called negative corpus where in the absence of evidence. Evidence of how the fire started. They can say, oh, well, she must have started with a match that is literally what the state of the evidence became after the wire was shown not to have caused the fire. It sounds like for whatever reason economics. Included that she was probably negligent in the way, she took care of the kids, but probably did. So the best way she could with what she had. I think that's a fair conclusion to draw. Yeah. Edward we are out of time. Good luck. And when when is her next trial date set if the appeal is being filed? Soon. I guess. So that is being prepared now. Okay. Good. We'll like we'll keep in touch in trying to monitor that case, I'm very very interested in that case right now up next we're gonna take a little break, but we're going to be back and talk about the miracle in the cave right here on coast to coast with special guests southeast correspondent for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Liam Cochran joins us next.
