Bucks Bounce Back to Beat Nets and Force Game 7
"We begin today with the milwaukee bucks going wire to wire to defeat brooklyn by fifteen points last night. Kevin durant scored thirty two for brooklyn but it took him thirty shots to get it. Chris middleton and janta compo- were much better they combined for sixty eight points and twenty seven rebounds and they shot twenty-three for thirty six wilpon does milwaukee's performance lead you to believe they can go to brooklyn and win game seven they can. Yes tony and you outlined all the important numbers all of them. And then there's one that's even more important it's zero number of three pointers jacked up by answers compo- none he didn't do it. He kept his big strong quick fast. Talented self in the space where he should be. Don't eat what you. I've been screaming for even the previous series. He kept himself near the basket and did his work there and stop jacking up those shots now. We know they can do it will they. I mean that's the first smart gamed. The bucks have played in. This series should have won the series already. If they had taken the same tact particularly with onto the kupu. But i do. I have faith that they will go with that same recipe. I don't know that. I have that faith. What about you. okay. So yes i agree with you that they can win right and one of the ways they could win as if pj tucker was able to do to kevin durant again in game seven what he did in game six. Because tucker was plus thirty and durant was minus seven but mike game six was not critical for brooklyn. They had a game to play with because the critical game for them was game five and they want it so for every home team has won. You have to tell me why that's going to change now. I look back on game five. And i see kevin durant scoring forty nine points. He's a great great player. I somehow have faith that if it's up to him to win game seven at home. He's going to win it.
When Is a No-Hitter Not a No-Hitter?
"Mark. Fine san of mlb dot com joins us. Now we are baseball loaded. If you listen to wilpon you know how much he enjoyed the san diego. La dodger series. And i will certainly talk about that. But i think above all else is the madison bumgarner circumstance. Madison bumgarner threw a seven inning. No hitter yesterday. And the reason he didn't throw a nine in no hitter is because it was a seven inning doubleheader as per the new baseball rules. My question is if baseball makes a rule that doubleheaders will be seven innings in certain circumstances. And you can't go nine. Is that a no hitter. Because that's the official game. Is that a no hitter. Well the elias. Sports bureau says no. They're the ones who make these decisions. for major league baseball you know if a guy throws a no hitter in the game gift suspended or cancelled for rain and the game is an official game at five innings That a no hitter. That's also been ruled as a no so You know. I unfortunately for baumgartner that he won't go in the history books as having a no hitter Would have been the first of his career But you know who cares right. I mean these are these are these are little things that You know madison. Bumgarner is not gonna need this no hitter to cement his reputation. I'm pretty sure what he did. In the world series is going to be what we remember him for whether he throws four no hitters from here to the end of his career.

"I don't know why you wouldn't do that. Oh the one of the outcries that we've heard for years is stretched. All the way out to the super bowl is played. So you have president's day off. Most people do on that monday now for us so i don't care. Yeah i know 'cause we'd have to be your anyway talking about it and so it's like a year and you kind of lose a big day because not as many people are in the cars very true so i don't love that but i do think it makes sense but if there's no second bye week i can totally understand the players being annoyed by it. You're also going to lose a preseason game or two. i don't know if it'll be one or two. But you definitely gonna lose that. I think players will be happy to see that go by the boards. It's generating more money for the game. Yeah two things. I thought were perfect over sixteen game schedule and then the way that the playoffs were settled And put those things. I think are now gone forever. Is the playoff thing done though. Yeah that's what is going to be sure it's not going back to where it was last year. We're going back to the years prior as far as i know. We're gonna have another super wildcard weekend. Which was fun soon. we are going to. So you're saying it's going to continue. What yeah yes. I'm i'm fine with that. I actually enjoyed it did you. I did it was one of those things. Where when they announced it. I didn't care for it but as the games were played did like it. I mean i do understand getting more teams involved in the postseason. That does count that matter. That's what i say with baseball. The time you'll want to really grow the game more teams involved that have a chance to win especially in a sport like baseball. Where you know you've got it's show regional and oppo season. A team can come out of nowhere. So i don't know. I just i maybe Sound like old man traditionalist with this stuff. But you'll adjust. I'll get used their calls up here. That i can't see that happening again. Yes it is. I can't see anything this always happens. Hold on i'll reset it. People were waiting there for a long time. I apologize because i had no idea. So the draft. Now were what a month away from the exactly a month. Today is the twenty ninth. And i think april twenty ninth is round one right but we already. Yeah and we already know though. What the hell everybody's doing we don't yeah. We know trevor lawrence is going to the jaguars after that crap shoot. I don't know man. I understand your point and i even senator earlier this morning. That the jets still could trade out and i wouldn't put it past them but i still think it's more likely i'll bet you breakfast. The jets don't exactly well some really staff breakfast a staff breakfast. Yes what was that thing. All that's what we're going to do our remember. I said the next show bet that we have the loser has to interview. One of those horrible guest pitches for twenty minutes. No i'm not interested. No no no no. I'll be happy to buy breakfast. I am not doing. 'cause i'm on those for whatever reason on that email list as well and you know what i love about those. I'm sure you guys see it too. I hope your tuesday's going great. I know you know. I have a great guest idea for you..

The Mets Quest To Rebuild, And Rebrand, Themselves
"So tim. It's certainly been a roller coaster of an off season for the new york mets. How would you characterize the state of this. Mets organization as we head into the twenty twenty one season. I feel like the mets are still in kind of a period of transition as an organization. Steve cohen took over at the start of november and he brings in sandy alderson. The team's former general manager as his team president guy who's really well respected around the game of baseball and the thought was they wanted to instill a new culture for the mets to build this new mets team. That was totally different from what they had previously under wilpon ownership and for two and a half months they nailed it. We're going to build a process that produces great teams year in and year out. You bill champions you. Don't buy them. They nailed the opening. Press conference and i plan to make the investments. We need to succeed. It started signing guys. Trevor may and james mccann. They make a huge landmark trade for francisco endure and carlos carrasco the first week of january and everything was rolling in the right direction for them until mid-january and the story about jared porter and his inappropriate text messages and texts photos with a female reporter while he was a member of the chicago cubs front office in two thousand sixteen exposed that maybe the mets could have done a better job in the vetting process. That was clearly for a lot of baseball reporters. Based on the inference took off of twitter talked and he will find out his character. That's on you. Skepticism is really exacerbated. A couple of weeks later when we learned about micky calloway's misconduct as mets manager. In two thousand eighteen. Twenty nine thousand. Nine callaway sent unsolicited messages and photos to women among other inappropriate and harassing behavior. The former mets manager aggressively pursued the women through messages and in person the team released a statement saying was hired by sandy alderson. As the general manager. Calloway had been hired by. Sandy alderson two years before so i think all of the good vibrations from the first couple months of the offseason were undercut by what happened in the last month of the offseason for mid january to the start of spring training in february
Francisco Lindor: New Hope For Mets Fans?
"For a big splash. A big domino to tip over and the mlb off season and we got one yesterday. The new york. Mets acquired francisco lindores and carlos carrasco from the cleveland indians for two shortstops in two minor leaguers and enormous transaction. How surprised are you that this happened not surprised at all. Buster olney is the host of the baseball tonight partly cast and he has been covering baseball for more than three decades. Look the last few years there had been so much industry speculation about when would the indians trade lynn door. In fact a couple of years ago. Paul dolan their owner told that the fan base look. Enjoy while you can. Because it was an assumption he was going to be traded. I think if not for the pandemic he would have been traded in the middle of last summer so the indians move in now and the fact that the mets were the buyers. That's not surprising either. Because i think mets fans have been waiting for Steve owns team to to make a big move and he certainly did that. And getting the best shortstop in baseball. Yeah i want to ask you about the cleveland side of the equation in a little bit. But i i wanna dive into the buyer that you mentioned because steve cohn buster. The mets new owner hedge fund billionaire self identifying proudly so diehard mets fan from long island. He's been on twitter. I'll off season making very loud noises about this being a new different kind of organization. You know we want to be excellent in all areas of this game That's going to require resources. And i'm fully committed to making that happen. He is so monumentally. Wealthy i mean he was one of the few people who didn't lose money in this pandemic shortened twenty twenty season. So what does this tell you about the promise of his regime yeah. He's the richest owner in baseball. Now and i. I wrote a piece Free espn dot com. That for mets fans who have suffered through their. Ptsd of the wilpon. Yes this is that the finally they get their reward were they have an owner. Who's willing to go toe to toe with the yankees owner. Who bills a team. That has continued success. I don't just want to get into the playoffs. I want to win a championship. You know through the years. Since i've been working in the new york market the assumption whenever a really big name came up. Was that the yankees. Probably elbow the mets out of the way and they would get the players in the in. The mets would operate like an upper middle class team rather than a big market team and this deal signals a change in that. But what i do believe. Is this a major markelle tune during the should have a budget to measure with the yankees coulda used shortstop. There are other big market teams. That could use a shortstop. And the mets get the best shortstop so because you are a veteran of the new york market i need to know how is indoor going to help reshape. Just the identity of the team itself because i mean nolan reported future about him. We'll get to that a bit as well but just how good is he. What's potential here well. He's the perfect player for the mets right. Now he's an elite defensive shortstop smash back can't buy off-balance throw in recent years jacob. Degrom has been great. Despite the fact that mets have been really poor on defense. It's shorts especially they need more lineup. Ballots lindores a switch hitter. They could use more power drill door with law. Law door hits for power. They could use speed lindores does that. He looked like the road runner as he took off from first base and he absolutely has the personality to be the face of a franchise in new york. You talking about someone who loves to play is nicknamed mr. smile. Hangmen fans absolutely will gravitate toward him. Yeah

"Quick story here. Mike Vaccaro is on hold These Maybe my paper economist in New York He's right there with film Ocean's quick story and then his ear is 2005 golden and I get hired by a P Chem magazine. You may remember them for him. Only that's right. Very good for him. Mag for him magazine. Yes, Me and Ali and Tweeden who was a very, very hard there, lady at the time. To do a fantasy football draft in Atlantic City. And my boss, Mark Chernoff, a W A PE and Communism office, and he said, No, no, don't don't call. You know they're not going to come back. I'm gonna have to fire you and I said to turn off I said, Tony, you've got to stop. I'm adult even though I've been suspended about 50 times, fired three times Never come back from a bunch of different Travis. I'll be back on Sunday because the Giants started the season that Sunday hosting the Carolina Panthers and I was hosting the Giants pregame show. It's ironic because the Giants thought of the season last night. This is 15 years ago. 2005 long story short I go to Atlantic City. I go to the party and a paycheck magazine and I get high as a kite. So it's Sunday morning. My agent at the time, Mark Lepselter is like Get up. We gotta go put a pair of sunglasses. Go do the game will leaving and I never left. Fast forward to Monday morning, then the other night on the George Washington Bridge on the way to a story a queen's toe begged Tony not to fire me. We're on the bridge and Daniel's phone rings, and it's turned off. He's crying. I swear to God, he's crying. Chernoff is crying. And he said, I hate to do this. He's gone. And Daniel started crying, said No, No, we're coming in to talk to. He said. Don't don't waste your time. He's done this too many times he's fired. And we turn the car around and we went home. 2005. And I remember that was the end of my W Fe and career. I moved to forward at that point, but I had to take Eva. She was a baby to the pediatrician's office that morning and 10 of flying majority. And I guess that 10 or seven that morning, my partner at the time, Robin Ingle went on the air. And very somber tones who lorded the audience that I had resigned. Even though I was really fired brawl. Thank you, Joe that I had beside you were still working for I miss that time as well. I was gone with you because of the Kali Ma. No comments months before. So now I'm done with the fan. So about the pediatrician's office. I guess bingo makes that comment on my phone starts to blow up. The first phone call I get is from Jim Nance, bro and he says Sydney I don't know what's going on. I love you. Good luck on the second phone call I got. This is a true story. At the pediatrician's office minutes after Joe Bingo said I had resigned. Was from Fred Wilpon. The owner of the New York match. No kidding when he said Coney Island guy like my father, right, John Katima TD's Coney Island. He had seen me in all the met games while the Brooklyn Cyclone Games, he said. The Wilpons will always love you. I love you. I don't know what's going on. I just heard Joe say you're resigned. I hope you're OK. Whatever you need. Call me second phone call Fred Wilpon. So when I found out yesterday that Steve Cohen bought the Mets It was bittersweet for me because I know that the world parents dont have money and I want the Mets to win and Commons got $15 billion But that is a very personal story that my second phone call actually came from Fred Wilpon. With that, said Steve Cohen hasn't fault in fact, I should say bought the Mets Mike Vaccaro is a tremendous writer for the New York Post. He's got all the details, but naughty loves you and I so here he is our dear friend, Mike Vaccaro. Good morning, Michael. So that's AH, That's a great story here to start the morning and it's really kind of represents. Proofread will fund is, Unfortunately, I mean, people get caught up in in the wind and Lawson the finances of baseball takes they forget their own by people. And Fred has always been a gentleman like that. I'm not gonna say it surprises because it's still those kind of surprised when you hear somebody only but do something that kind, but that really kind of That kind of inspired me for the rest of day. I'm I'm I'm sorry you had to go through that. But I'm delighted You had the story to tell you. I'm glad to say in that because that's what I wanted to tell the story. Because I, you know, look, Jeff Wilpon, His son is a guy that a lot of people don't like. To be honest, I don't know Jeff all that well, But it is a nice story, and it does go to show you that phrase is a deep seeded deep rooted New York. I And we know what happened with Bernie made off. And we know of course, that met bands have been mad at Federal Ponti years. But he really is a lovely man. But regardless of that, Steve Cohen buys the Mets $2.6 billion just into this question from me and Bernie Mike. He was about to buy the Mets a couple of months ago. Then all of a sudden it stopped. Here comes Dont Rod. And now yesterday he bought the Mets. So what happened yesterday? That didn't happen three months ago. I think the rest of the family realized that, uh, just desire to have a hand in things for the next five years wasn't nearly as important.

Trader Joe's Fall Products to (Pumpkin) Spice Up Your Shopping List
"Welcome to another of our short shopping list episodes. I'm Tara Miller director of words and phrases and clauses, and I'm Matt Sloan, the marketing product guy now just about everyone in every type of business has had to make adjustments during this pandemic but we're proud the trader Joe's has maintained a commitment to developing new products to giving you that sense of discovery on every visit. So, let the discoveries begin. All right hold on I'm just organizing. I don't even know where to start there. So many new products. What's purple on the outside creamy white on the inside and makes a Great Ship Donny Osmond socks no. Almost Masaaki sweet potatoes. They're not the normal sweet potato. They're not the bright orange sweet potato, their paler in color and flavor. Wise. I'm going to say that they're kind of like a roasted chestnut in obnoxious kind of way. But in a nice way like insists nutty sweetness these are great chips but wait met we sell. Masaaki. Potatoes in our protection when we can get them. These are delicious sweet potatoes people love them. They're great for you. You meant the sweet potatoes themselves. You mean in chip form that these should be considered some kind of health. Okay. These are potato chips, full disclosure, right So they come with all the caveats that regular chips do sweet potatoes themselves really good for you. I will stand by them. Those are probably in the store. Already I think those are coming in at the beginning of September or something like that, and they are limited because there's a limited number of these potatoes that can be made into chips. People associate trader Joe's with Pumpkins stuff in the fall. How about Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slim's I mean this is a candy. Yes Pretzel but it's a pretzel that is swimming in really nice white chocolate with crushed pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds and I think we're trying to figure out another way to Pumpkin on their one more time. These are just great. So if you like the peppermint. Pretzel Slim's. I think you'd be a fan of these to these are really tasty sweet with just a little salty. So you just WANNA keep coming back for more. Another thing. That is sweet. But I think not too sweet are the pumpkin spice batons that are coming in and those are kind of a very close relative to the cocoa batons that we have every day and the vanilla batons we have the villa batons. Do, and we've had coffee batons we lemon for awhile it's a wafer cookie with pumpkin spice filling inside I mean it's kind of simple and straightforward, but it's a you know kind of thing you could have with a cup of coffee or even some ice cream though should be in stores by the time. This podcast lands and folks should be able to grab those right away. They're just delicious when we're thinking about. What else to include as a Pumpkin version we often look to really popular products Brioche we sell an inordinate amount of that classic agee, Sweet french-style Bread. We have a Pumpkin Brioche coming I'm excited for this. I think French toast will never be the same. That was also super limited by the right like it's it's in and we'll have it for a little while, but it's not something that's going to be around for. You know months and months and months. That's our hope for infant works or it'll be a great. Saint. Patrick's Day breakfast and by that time it'll be green. So perfect. One of the things that was a big sort of revelation to me this year even though it's not something we invented it's not something we were the first to think of is the spicy pumpkin curry simmer sauce that's coming in. It's kind of inspired more by a Thai curry than Indian curry but it has all of those really classic curry flavors. With the addition of actual Pumpkin and it's like thick and it's creamy and it's got a really good kick to it. I'M GONNA. Say This is good. Right out of the jar actually with Yeah Yeah I can't wait to hear about how people put this to use. We are working on a recipe right now internally for a Vegetarian Spicy Pumpkin Curry potpie that we're hoping to have on our website and in the fearless flyer in late. September. Also, I think slated to be featured in an upcoming flyer many spicy Pumkin Samosas the. Sabih in the frozen section, this is not a Pumpkin pie situation at all. This is an appetizer wonderful bridge creamy spiced pumpkin filling. This does sort of flavor. Wise. Go more toward the Indian style curry Classic Somoza Spices are used this. These are delicious. They're really good with a number of different kinds of sauces has been a we've tried them with a Chutney but also with our sweet chili sauce, which takes its inspiration from Thai cuisine and the hot and sweet pepper Jelly these tastes really good dipped in any of those. I'm still focused and obsessed with Pumpkin Pumpkin Nada. Now, this is a Pumpkin pie situation. So think of a small Mexican inspired hand pie with delicious spiced kind of a classic spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice filling. So. Good. So not like spicy spice but like sweet savory spice, the spices more like our spiced apple cider or a traditional Pumpkin pie spice sat up I mean this would be great for breakfast I. Think because I like to have pie for breakfast you know pine a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day, and this is like a little pie. So it's like I'm just having a little Lil Pie wilpon. That's your new nickname. Okay.

"David broke the story on DH. We welcome board right now. Good afternoon, David. How you doing, buddy? I'm doing Okay. Hope you guys are both doing well, we're doing well and thanks. It's been a while since we last we spoke, David after the initial deal fell through here. You know, Cohen everyone when the story came out, and you broke the story that you know, people are saying what was always going to be Steve Cohen take us away from what your knowledge and understanding is You know this process and why it played out so quickly. We didn't have to wait till today. Where that news comes down Friday night. Yeah, you know, Listen, I Comey always had to imagine was, um, the person Most able to pull it off. If he wanted to write, he's by far the wealthiest of any of them. Bitting, so to speak, and it really is just a matter of how much he wanted to write a check for, But that said, I don't think it was in any way Fair completed. He was gonna win this time on should point out even though he's he's in exclusive talks, and my latest reporting is maybe a little of a couple of days away. Finding a deal not celebrating yet, and you both know Well, Last time we talked, this thing fell apart very close to sort of the end. There's different things. I could talk to her. If you want about what's different this time last, But in terms of competition, I mean, the Abra J. Lo cook was real from everything I hear. Now there were some who are questioning whether all their equity commitments from various investors would have been would have been good. That debt commitment potentially from JP Morgan. They were real and they I think we're getting confident that they had a real shot at this thing, and I think they're willing to go a size 2.3 billion. I think kind of that's where they indicated. On. Clearly, Cohen stepped up above that is what I what I my reporting indicates given. He's the one who has exclusive rights to negotiate and get the final deal done. So, David, what is different this time around? Why is this closer to the finish line that it was back in? What was that February? It was said right now is just trying to feel like a lifetime ago. Time is weird these days. Yeah, but it was only February late December when when they sort of want come and looked like he was going to get the team and then it fell apart, not separate. But we talked to a number of times. Well, first, there was a five year agreement that you too know well about right five year management agreement that even though he would own the team, well ponds, and Jeff Wilpon would manage it for a parent of years after that sort of complicated things, although subsequently so what I knew back then I also think that there was some difficulty around the costs of closing the deal. So called closing costs, you know, and there was a back and forth there that they didn't get to an answer to a new agreement on in terms of who would bear certain costs. They've been through all this before, and the five year agreement obviously is not a part of this. Deal it alright when he buys it. He owns it he controls And so I think there is hope on both sides that they can get through it more quickly. But that said, Listen, You never know. You know, you never know. These two days when trying to sort of get to the absolute final thing and get their signatures on the page. You never know something's gonna come up. It doesn't seem likely, but certainly we know it's possible that anyone has bought a house was just nodding their heads slowly when you're talking about closing costs. Oh, my goodness. There really were channeling David Favour co anchor of CNBC Squawk on the street joins us now. No, David, as in how much was it? The Post reported that Will Jeff Wilpon was not part of the negotiations. We know and have seen reports that Jeff and Steve don't see II. Someone said that Jeff can't stand. Steve Cohen. How much was How important was it to get Jeff out of the negotiating room? This go around? He knows? I don't really know Specifically how important that wass and I don't know that I could speak to the level of animosity. If there is any between Mr Cohen Oh, and Jeff Wilpon. Um, what I do know is that it's well, ponds and you are Going to sell the team You want to have a robust in auction is possible. So even if there was a mill well with Mr Collins, if maximizing your profit is really what you're all about. There's just no way you don't want him sitting down at table or at least being a part of the of of the bidding process. I mean, Knowing that he could write the cheque that as it's turned out, of course, would be the highest number. You'd probably get paid. So you know, I guess To the extent of your well ponds. And if that's true from the post reporting that there is this high level attention, you just don't want Jeff from the room, conceivably, or in these days on the zoom to negotiate that for you. We're talking with David Faber from squawk on the street and had the news that Steve Cohen has the exclusive exclusive negotiating rights to buy the vets. And this is gonna be David Metz. Citi Field. Did you hear anything about S N y, which was to die? Obviously, full disclosure have have done work for anything about the network. No, You know, that's not a part of Neil's. Far as I'm aware, it's funny. One of the bidding groups group might have been some, There was some discussion about whether there would be a certain percentage that they might buy. I think Cohen would like tone, but it's not a part of this deal. As far as I'm aware, um, and there's some complexities around two in terms of the contract between us online, the Mets, whether or not because you have the same owners on both sides. Whether the Mets are getting fairly compensated. So that could be an issue. You know, if you're a buyer, you're gonna want to understand what fair value of the of the TV rights and radio right streaming rights really has because that secrets into your Willingness to ability to bits, but it's unwise problem. We're not a part of this transaction down the road. It certainly could be something that he looks by because I think that On coin's part to own it, David, What do you think Cohen will be as Mets owner? You know, we talked about this, I guess last time when? When? When? It was bad news even more, right? Yeah, because I think this belief No, I know him from following him for many, many years through a lot of good and bad times, obviously the key being the insider trading Ah, settlement that he reached with the government. Um, but he also somebody who really understands how tow evolved. Ah, business. And so that it stays. Relevant and I think he's managed to do that for many years running his hedge fund, predecessor say fees new 1.72 Um, he, you know he's known sort of for having been this great trader. But really, I think what he really has been somebody who understands how to build a business and evolve it. And make sure that it's still able to maintain high level the problem. So if you believe that's the case, I think you're going to embrace him as an owner. That's just first deep pockets, but because I think he He learned and he implements on is constantly trying to be the forefront of things that are changing Mama Baseball's also changing a lot every day..

"Clearly I misunderstood both the first recommendation or suggestion that might we might have an alternative to what the players were going, Teo and secondly, you know, I didn't have the tone of the context to it and talking with With both the commissioner and with Jeff in the aftermath of my video coming out, No. I recognized that there was brainstorming about suggestions and that it wasn't rob in his leadership that was requiring or suggestion or mandating anything by any stretch of the imagination for stuff. It wouldn't surprise me. Rob Manfred had That awful idea also wouldn't surprise me if it was Jeff Wilpon's awful idea. Any time buddy bandwagon and speaks, though, comes off to Mia's used car salesman can't believe anything, he says. And any time Jeff Wilpon speaks. I can't believe anything, he says, either. And in the statement last night where you got one from Jeff Wilpon and Fred Wilpon, Fred Wilpon's going on and on and on and on about how great of a leader Rob Man, Fred is. Can we see some evidence? Because the last few months rob Man, Fred has been an awful leader. He could mess up a two car funeral procession. That's how bad rob Man Fred has been. So Brody bandwagon and actually gets painted in a positive light by Mets fans because he trashed the commissioner, which he should dio because the guy's a NEP commissioner, and then you make Him apologize. And then we have to hear from Fred and Jeff. Just continue to bloviate about how great Rob Manfred is. I can't wait for Fred and Jeff Wilpon to sell the team. Please. Steve Cohen. I'm on one knee. I'm imploring the sports gods. Please save us, Steve, because I can't stand these in confident Bozo's that run the team. Spend some money on the team. Get the team better instead of just Oh, I love Rob, man, Fred. No one likes Rob. Man, Fred Right now. He's bad at his job. Shame on Rob, man, Fred. Shame on Fred Wilpon. Shame on Jeff Wilpon Stock down, all of you. Stock down to Mark Cuban's wife. By the way, This is a quote from Mark Cuban today. If I had to choose the two my wife and keeping Luca on the Mavs catch me at my lawyer's office. Prepping for a divorce. Oh, I feel bad for Cubans life. Think about that. Now she now people are gonna ask Is the marriage okay? And Cubans just being a wise ass here? That's what he's doing. I think Mark Cuban owes his wife a lot. Probably gonna have to get a new diamond ring. So maybe actually should give a stock up to you know, I'm gonna change this stock up to Mark Cuban's wife Stock down to Mark Cuban I know you have a ton of money. But man, that's a rough comment on finally stock down to the Big 10. You're going to play a season. You released the schedule, then you're not. Then, two weeks later, we're going to potentially have games on Thanksgiving. Stop teasing us. Are you actually trying to play? Give me that answer. Let me know what it is, and I want to hear anything leaked out. Before we have that final decision. Let me know if you're going to play. If you're gonna plan Thanksgiving, why not?

"Anyway, just keep it. Now is that I will make sure just listen. Yes. Here. I should report tells you So in there twice, he says. This is just between the three of us. And he got his crushing rob Manford for suggesting of the this suit this weird Protest. Leave the field come back in play. He defends Jeff Wilpon having to deal with Rob Manfred's mania. So this comes out. Everyone freaks out, but mostly is celebrating Brody Bandwagon and Sean because a defending the players and be ripping Manfred and no one likes Rob Manfred's Everyone's like, Yeah, go get him acknowledge that he put himself in some danger, and then we get a statement from Brody saying My bad It wasn't Rob Manfred's idea. It was Jeff Wilpon's idea to do this slipping. So now he's throwing his boss on the bus. Then the boss and his boss, Daddy, Fred, issue statements just destroying Brody for misread the situation. Having bad info saying all these things and in this statement, they Miss Bell Brody are O d I e. The Fred Wilpon. Stephen has to Brody's B R O D Y. And then they don't even add a sore on purpose. They thought they'd be even meaner. They misspelled there G. M's name in a statement criticizing him for these secret comments about his the Sun and the commissioner, I mean again. While this beautiful moments going on the field They have never been Mohr Mets. Then yesterday, right? So just to recap really quickly. Brody bandwagon by the way, wearing a mask, which was great, rocking an empty chair is the visual of this video just s so weird. Somebody post this on the Met's website. Maybe on purpose. It could be a Costanza abroad. He's trying to get fired, trashes the MLB commissioner while discussing a private conversation the commissioner had with the Mets owner Then comes out and apologizes because he traced the commission to say no, I misunderstood was the owner who said that which is his boss leading his girl's about to not be the owner anymore, which is what one of theories like. While we can crush. I could throw this on him because he's out soon because they're about to be sold. They're about to be sold. And then the owners come back spell Brody's name a couple of times wrong. I mean, this is the New York Mets. This is Major League Baseball. Rob Manford could have avoided this for the New York Mets. If he had just wipe the slate, Clean, said Tonight's not the night to play baseball. He did not. And as you point out today, the celebrating Jackie Robinson Day. I mean, how powerful would that have been even more if you didn't play any games just in your resumption of baseball's on Jackie Robinson Day? But it leads to a leak The video, So who's posting this video? Is that somebody that wants Brody fired? Is it somebody at once? Manfred and will ponder look stupid. Who knows? This is the circus that that happened in New York City last night from Major League Baseball. Hi amidst what was now going to be the most powerful baseball moment of 2020 instead of people just walking out literally 42 seconds of silence and the Black lives matter T shirt at home plate. The match could on Lee do this. Rob Manford is egg on his face The Wilpons vague on the streets, and I got to tell you both. I know the Wilpons of song the team soon. How does even if he did it right? And what brought, he said 100%, right. How do you keep Brody bandwagon and employed? You know, he's talking about you like this. He and I talking behind your back about your private conversation talking about this. How is an owner? Do you have any guts if you don't fire Brody, by the way, I'm not saying Brody Shit because Brody was right. But just from I don't understand how you could keep a shot because there's a boss. How can you keep your employees that did that? Yeah, I'm with you. I mean, it was when we thought it was just an honest mistake that somebody left the video running and it was, like, just kind of a live screen grab. I know it was a weird Juxtaposition because Brody was the good guy in this conversation. But while being the good guy he was crushing his bosses for being idiots, whether it's his media bosses or the commissioner, so It is. I mean, I'm with you. I don't know how he doesn't get. You know what? You are relieved of his duties reassigned. I mean, you can't these conversations I know they happened. I mean, we've all I hope they're not listen when we've all had critical conversations of her boss, but none of them have been put online. And we also are smart off. I think to stop at some point going too far in this. This got ugly. It got embarrassing and immediate problem. Maybe it could have happened somewhere else. But the list is short and the Mets have to be number one on the list to do something this dumb this embarrassing while they're doing something so good on the field to boot. Just an unbelievable baseball moment last night, and I just I feel bad forms. They did tweet last night. Steve delves a really good job. He is a reporter for X and Y on met Stevie. And if you guys have MLB extra innings if you're not the New York area, listening And watch this met moment last night. Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling and Gary Coleman on the Mets. Broca's They're all talking about this moment after and not knowing that they won't have baseball going to talk about. And they do. This is just another 2020. I can't believe it. But they cut Steve Jobs was to be away from them because a Corona virus. He's trying have a serious conversation. And he's sitting in amongst all of these cardboard cutouts bogus and there's just a corkboard cut out baby laughing behind him. It's not his fault. It's that the trucks fold. But it just it was like, how am I even getting a message across here like this is 2020. Now it's it's reporters amidst cardboard cutouts of babies trying to talk about social justice. The whole thing was just so Mets last night. Everything about it was so met They play a video We should and we didn't play this and I meant to an update yesterday, and we got crunched for time. So shame on me for that. But they played video of Dom Smith of the Mets in tears on Wednesday night, talking about Everything. Post MBA decision Post, Jacob League and Dom is Domine. Billy Hamilton of the only black Met active players right now, and Tom is in full on tears. Talking about The pain of everything, so they play that they come back. Gary Cohen gives it a Keith Hernandez and Keith Hernandez has choked up because he and Donald then come have become close. And he said, You know what? This is? My friend and almost called him like, you know, it feels like he's my son, and he's there crying, and it breaks my heart. And Steve Gelb's had done a podcast with Tom Smith. I think earlier this year may be the end of last year, the exact timeline But where Dom talked about all of these things and was emotional then, too, so they go to Steve from Mohr and Steve's choked up. After Dom Smith's crime after Keith has choked up and now Steve Gelb's choked up like You said, he's sitting there with his arm. Basically around somebody's $86 caught out, and it's just like And you know you don't want to blame anybody. But somebody's job in that moment. Should have been like Steve, Can you go for Rose that behind you, like let's get let's get you out of the A cardboard cut out the area because it just like you said it. I mean it. It's a different, weird, twisted level of like Comedy. Almost when we're having a serious conversation, sitting amongst cut out pictures of fans reminding us how messed up everything is right now, 855 to 1 to 42 to 7, as if that wasn't stunning enough, were stunned.

"No good to the Wilpons through the years. And I think the Wilpons would oblige if it wasn't that much of a load here. Have their group and also not have call incompetent blowing everybody out of the water, and I like that, and I don't got money. I think he'll do a fine job on the meth. Tall and that you actually don't listen, Those are those are available factors and you bring up one where you're right. I mean, Major League Baseball has been very good to Fred Wilpon over the years and Doug thanks a lot for the coal. I'm just curious of how competitive their offer needs to be. How close do they need to be for the Mets to turn to J. Rod's group? And once again curtail the overtures of Steve Cohen? Is it 100 million Is it 200 million? You know, I could not imagine them taking 300 million less. And you know, it doesn't have to be an even offer. I mean, I don't know. I mean, That's where I would like. Listen, everything you point out. Yes, there's an issue. We've talked about it with Major league baseball. You know, Preston Wilson wrote a good piece about you know, the fact of of young African American athletes play in Major League baseball, right? We're down to 3% when you look at it. No. Ah, young African American athletes playing baseball. I mean, it's it's startling The numbers about you know who is, you know the young athletes and what they're choosing to play and what not to play. In this country and the connective ity. Obviously, that Major league baseball does have. There's no doubt about it Welcoming inn and diversifying your ownership groups amongst the sport. Yeah, there are positives. I'm not denying that and I agree with that. I just want to. I think the offer needs to be even though I mean, I have a hard time thinking that that soul cats is going to go out there and Jeff Wilpon Fred Wilpon are going to take three. 253 $100 million less to Stell Tio, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez. I mean, maybe they will. I mean, I don't know. Maybe it's a case, Maggie, where they throw a Benny into their where Jeff Wilpon's gonna maintain his office space and and have Ah say within the team, and I'm a life long contract. I have no idea what they could do and play games. I mean, The initial Cohen offer, and then Jeff Wilpon remaining in control for five years made little to no sense to me, and that ended up when that story came out that made that made a little to no sense to me and to everybody else, and that's the thing that end up killing the deal, so I don't know what they could do to spice up the offer. I'll tell you Okay, so if this is not going to come down, Teo, the actual dollar amount that is change that has changed hands between the Wilpons in the next owner. Because that Steve Cohen will always be able to up up up up what the J Rod group has that Cohen does not have. Raise Global star power. So if the J Rod group and No one showed up to watch Steve Cohen do karaoke, OK, the J Rod group can show him that. If the J Rod Group can show that her star power can somehow influence thie value of the franchise like Not just the 102 103 $100 million that would be at the time of the sale, but for years to calm and if the Wilpons are guaranteed in this deal that they can hang on to 20% of the team. And this is going to pay dividends for them for years and years to come. They get out of the debt. All of that stuff will. Then it does become more attractive. If it's just about apples to apples. What's your offer on Wednesday? And what's your offer on Wednesday? Then Cohen's gonna win If J. Rod can make it about so much more than that, they will make a more attractive offer, where I think the Wilpons would potentially take less in the moment. Thinking that it will create more for them down the line. Look at Bobby Bania situation. Brooklyn Bound we go. It's Mike. It's the family's going on..

Carlos Beltran Out as Mets Manager After Astros' Cheating Scandal
"We got the news about one o'clock today that yet. Another person untied to the Houston Astros. Cheating scandal has lost his job. Carlos Beltran recently hired by the mets to be there next managers out of his job before even having having a meeting in spring training. That's because he was named in. The Commissioner's report released the other day for his role in the Astros signed stealing scandal of two thousand seventeen eighteen Beltran and the mets both indicated. Today that this was a mutual decision but I suspect that a week or two weeks ago even those with knowledge of the science dealing details from two thousand in seventeen believed that Houston. GM Jeff Luneau Astros Manager Aj. Hinch Red Sox manager Alex Cora now Carlos Beltran would still have have their jobs and they're all out and that's where we are probably Vera covers baseball for ESPN. She knows. Carlos Beltran now score very well Marley. How you doing? It's been a crazy week. I think crazy is a very good adjective buster special like no that totally can managers. Were highly touted. I don't have a job today. Unbelievable let's let's start with Carlos Beltran. That is the the most recent news. I'm going to also ask you about Alex. Corsie is we go forward but but I about Carlos. I thought that when the mets didn't put out a statement immediately on Monday evening after the Commissioner's report came out out the fact that the mets didn't come out right away and have a statement from Jeff Wilpon from Brody Bandwagon. And saying this is our guy. Carlos Beltran is our manager edger. And that's what we're going to do moving forward because what was in the report involved the Houston Astros in two thousand seventeen. The commissioners made it clear that Carlos this is not going to be disciplined for his role in that because he's the player at that time but the fact that they didn't put out that statement on Monday and then dragged out into Tuesday day and then Wednesday. You could see that the mets they were weighing their options and just as someone who covered the mets back in one thousand nine hundred seven having worked in New York market for a long. I've never seen an organization that is more affected by public opinion than the mets. And I thought Yep that he at some point. They're going to let him go. What what did you think absolutely couldn't agree more with what you said? And not only that the fact that you know one of the reasons why they hired Beltran was because it was excellent in publicity. Ns S you. And I know spending so much time covering baseball in New York. The mets have failed many times on the PR department. And this would hiring hiring Carlos Beltran. They bought themselves all this goodwill right the return of the prodigal son with everything that had happened when he had left the comments of the Wilpon when he used to be a you know. Oh a mets player. Everything gets kind of water under the bridge. There's just you know one of the most impressive press conferences that I have attended you know at city field so it was just as big. Pr Moment and then all of a sudden I agree with you. They got swayed by public opinion. And one of the things that Carlos Beltran and as you mentioned before which is important you state. The aren't family our friends of mine. So my activity here Sometimes can be a little bit swayed but the point is that can handle the media. He's been you know he was a player for twenty a years worked on a capacity assistant with the Yankees and so on and I feel that this was in my opinion. Definitely a wilpon decision muster. Oh No no question. The way this was described I think Carlos but at a statement they talked about a mutual decision. No way like this like Carlos I think absolutely was set on going forward but they say as all the conversation was taking place in New York to columnists were were taking aim at this and they are asking questions. Well what. What did the mets ask Carlos about? After the first athletic story came out about the signed stealing. And how would the mets feel about Carlos not having credibility with the media and it became a real hot topic on talk radio here and one stat ball started rolling downhill and then Aj hinch losses job and Jeff Luna lost his job and Alex. Cora lost his job. There was no way the mets leadership was going to stand in the way of that momentum and stand up and say in the past it was in the past which by the way is what Brody van wagon and said back in November. He kind of indicated like well. That's not really a mets problem. That's an astros throws problem. But their their their words their tone definitely changes week the only aspect that I can you know Ah have gone in this process. One of the things were Carlos may have had some input. Devil's advocate here. Is that one of the things that Carlos Beltran they'll turn and and you and I have covered a great deal of is the fact that he does not like off. The field distractions buster. And I think at that is the part or they'll go. You know what this is the right decision. He is one of those guys that likes to talk baseball. I remember what it was like the whole scandal with Iran in the Yankees Yankees Carlos Beltran was part of the Yankees Organization at the time as a player and he refused to engage in sort of those conversations so there is an aspect of how much he doesn't like the distraction and then that part certainly you know he could have had any input on but I I agree with you. This isn't you know the mets founded selves in an island. Having to make a decision and they got swayed by Jim Crane did and obviously you know what the Boston Red Sox decided to do. After the imposition of a penalty suspension to Alex Score. So let's breakdown go by the way. Yeah exactly breakout some other elements of this What do you think the mets miss out on? Not Having Carlos Beltran altron their manager. Carlos Beltran is an excellent leader. And I think that's one of those things that has been a little bit missing the New York Mets Organization. He drives arrives you. He's one of those guys that inspires others other players and he also galvanizes clubhouses right. He he was the player for the day when he was with the Yankees. Hanky along with Andrew Miller he always has always been so well spoken and he crosses that kind of you know barrier quote Unquote Latino players. And you know the players that are not Latino and I felt that he could galvanize that clubhouse very very well and I think that's the number one thing that the mets are going to miss out on and this is a man who obviously has left the game for a long time doesn't need the money this isn't right and it was honestly doing this job because he truly wanted to make an impact in organization that really has lost their way a little bit in the last couple of years so I think it's a huge loss. So they mess. We're GONNA do not have Carlos Beltran but I do understand the decision. In terms of the whole quote in quote distractions off the field now. I'm not as close to him as you are if I was I think and he asked me my advice in this situation. Now that he's lost the job of the mets would. I think I would tell them was Carlos you need to hold a press conference in New York have rent out a room at a hotel or restaurant invite all the reporters to come and basically say I'm here to answer all your questions about what went on with Houston with me back in two thousand seventeen eighteen. Because I think that's the only way he's going to be able to manage at some point down the road and all I heard for the last decade is this is someone who absolutely terrific manager in the future future. He has to be great at this job but I think that would allow him to and let's face he's never going to move past this. It's already cost him his job but at least to get past those questions would be to tell the writers. I'm here to answer every question you people have about what take place and I'll tell you exactly really what happened. What do you think about that? I don't know that I mean I. I would love for that to happen. Let's be very clear. I don't know that the benefit for for Carlos it's worth it If if one of the drugs and he said this in an introductory press conference specifically said I didn't want any job I don't need need a job. I wanted to stay in New York. Carl has very very young children. They're all right like very yes. Three kids are all very young during school in your this is where they reside the kids go to school will. So there's only two baseball jobs that he would apply for the New York Yankees and the New York mets and he's not gonna get either one of those jobs so I just don't think that at this point point it benefits the family anyway and I do think that Carlos will do what's best for his family especially having young children Buster and I know you know that you had young children at one time. It's the point that these kids have to see the paper tomorrow. They're going to be in school. They're old enough. You know and I feel like it would rehash a lot of topics. Is that right now. Maybe people are going to move on you know and and just gone from that now if he later on when the kids are a little bit older he wants to do something else. Maybe at that point but but at this point I just don't see the benefit.

I'm sorry. argument to me and joe girardi isn't so for jeff wilpon and brody brody van wagon you want to change the subject you want positive things to be said about your franchise then bring a real leader and that leader that sitting right there at m._l._b. network in his nice little office is joe girardi give your franchise credibility because the biggest problem this franchise has is it doesn't have that ability not joe brings it yep yep you're quiet i'm on a percent with you beyond that no doubt about it we've got yankee tickets to give away every hour we'll get into their successful weekend they did lose yesterday but like i always say don't just look at sunday to determine the weekend it was a very successful weekend for the new york yankees we still haven't seen their eight plus lineup altogether at the same time so it makes them some yankees as the show rolls on will talk to mike whom a little bit later on we'll get your phone calls on.

Just things look forward to Pete Rose tomorrow, new book out, and we got the first stop was set up months ago. I mean, I got a copy of book like four months ago. You know, one of the you know the original books before was a regular copy. So, and we set this up months and months ago. So it'd be hit a moral, and we have locked in the Lonzo for Wednesday. So we'll talk to the new Mets slugger. See I was things going for him on Wednesday. Mike flow park. What's up, Mike? Why might that's can't miss radio? What time is he coming on? I'm not sure you got time for Lonzo yet. No. No rose roses for tomorrow. Four tomorrow, NBA he'll be in studio tomorrow four people's. Oh my God. Hey, mike. Can I make well, first of all, good pick Kelly. I actually picked him for the PGA. He is such a good kid. I'm so happy to town to plan. He's so big and I got I take I take the masters. I'm gonna pick Mickelson for the I don't. I would root crow I'll root crazy if he's in front. But I don't I can't see it. I just don't think he just don't think he could hit fairways. Hey, mike. Right. He loves pebble but I just don't think I mean, I hope you're right. But I don't see it. Go ahead. What I hope I am to comment on the Mets. And this is how I can I talk about them anymore. The meadow organization is just happy to be the best of the worst. That's how I see them. That's all they want to do. Just be better than the worst. Maybe make a the bottom Sita wildcard by Deaton. Some of the worst things around the Mets awful team. Well, I'm in love obviously you've you Anthony east Hanover. What's up? Thing. On mike. Good. I'm not gonna destroy them at the last call even though I frequently but I was calling about Jeff wilpon today, not that not that mostly will be calling about right. Tell the team and that because the owners can do whatever they want. Here's my problem with the Mets. Is that if you remember this off season when the Mets were looking for GM off the bat cast of the GM pool? And most, if not all of the top GM's, they wouldn't even sit down and interview with the Mex. So I laugh when people start saying, you know, Joe Girardi here get so shouldering, your guys Mike and those from this off season, when never work for the Mets, because final baseball decisions are made by devil. Most. It's not true. It's the way you get it from. It's not true. I mean I wish I could convince you, it's not true. He's not doing that. I, I don't know why you think he is. But he's not gonna decisions. He led his general management decisions, why would a guy like Brodie van wagon leave being one of the most lucrative agents in the country. And take a job, which is a risky job, a job where he can get destroyed. He can see ready how bad it can get bad. It's been the last couple of weeks. Why would he take that job if he wasn't making the decisions? Why would he bother? Why would he leave he left? The job is one of the most lucrative baseball agents in the in the country. Guy didn't have need this. He didn't need to do that. He added job always make a lot of money. He took this job. You don't they took power. It's not true. He does have the power now those his decisions. Right. Or wrong decisions. Maneuver show. What's up? Hey, mike. Hawaii fourth horse race, but Mickey Callaway as a nice guy, but when he does press conferences, he sounds clues Bill de Blasio. He said he he does. He doesn't sound good. I. The nice guy does he he at least he doesn't have to admit he does, come off, like a nice guy, but he does not come off. Like he has a good grip on things. He does. Anyway. Mike TV g Saudi, I didn't know you were running, and that depend national race horses eleven to one. He got slammed at the end. And at the age was hanging, and then gone geared to sixteen poll, I was going to catch him. I put a few dollars to win on him. I have reverse exactly. But I'm not you were running, and I didn't handicap the race. But that person was a good race bike. Listen, five hundred thousand dollar purse surprised me how well he ran. I thought he was in a very defeat. He wasn't a very good field. He ran a big race biggest race of his life ran really well. They've done a very good job with that horse. I'm just an innocent bystander with us on the passenger. But you know what? Have a lot of fun with, but I'm not making any decisions with them. And they've done a great job of them. They really have cost crazed on very, very well. Give the, the main ONA Lea, and the and the trainable Mont, they get old credit. They've done a great job of really have. Ritchie and import Washington. What's up Ritchie? Hey, mike. I agree with your take on Jeff wilpon. I think that this is a case, probably of the Mets just overrating pitching a little bit, and most people didn't expect the ground to take us. You know, big step back from the grunt, send the gone heaven done their job, and then the bullpen hasn't done its job and can no hasn't done his job. That's a lot of negatives that they expected to be positives on this team. I would just say that, you know while they tried to build a team to compete into win that they probably haven't gone all in on the pitching in acquiring the depth that they need to get in order to go through the slumps and injuries. And, you know, you have Wheeler taking a big step back wall. So you have Matt. Inconsistent. I mean, the Mets really the only guy that's proven to be consistent has been degrom, and he's taking a step back this year. And the big surprise has been Alonzo's had an incredible season. I mean, he's, you know, he's nineteen home runs and forty AVI is. I mean he's incredible season. So far. They probably they probably expected between Fraser and Alonzo and Smith at someone would do. Okay. I mean, this is a huge fan but where do you see the Mets going, if they are going to be buyers at the trade deadline? What, what hold you think they'll try to fill? They'll try and fill the bullpen. And I think they'll try to get an feel bad. I think that's would be the two positive things they could do. I think that would be the two things pick up a bat which they do need adorable bat that they could pick up for the rest of the season. And also a relief pitcher and hope that, that relief pitcher turns out to give them a boost, because they need a boost in that, and I and they have to commit Lugo to that pen because they need them in the worst way they really though he is very, very important. John Oxford candidate. What's up, John? Hey, Mike, thanks for taking the call. I listen to questions if I could get him out the first one. About the Yankees. I was getting into a discussion of France about the keys and the current state of players players come thing, and we start talking about judge at this point judges career would you? Call him fragile. Well, I mean listen. He's been heard every year, so you have to take that into account until he starts playing a couple of years where he's not missing extended periods of time. It's a fair thing to call. I mean, I think you're right part of being great. If judge has the ability, right yet you have to play every day. I mean part of being a superstar if you want to be a dominant player. I mean Alex Rodriguez played all the time. I mean Derrick jeeter played all the time. I mean, you know, LeBron James plays all the time. And Michael Jordan played all the time, they don't play sometimes and he's missed way way too many games. And you have to be thoroughly part of being out. There's exceptions. But you know, it's funny when we think of Mickey Mantle, is always being hurt. Mickey Mantle when he retired at play more games than anybody in the history of the Yankees. Yes, he had some years, where he missed games. But most years he found. Away to one hundred and forty aims. A couple years, more usually didn't get the one sixty never got on fifty bunch of times. But I did have a couple of years. We won the one hundred twenty games. You know, the one year we broke his foot played, sixty five games put most of the time he figured it out of the play a lot of games. You gotta show.

"Live from the black based studio, which black bed w chooses. You know where only at ShopRite Berle ally. How am I tell me how you, it's a complicated question. Yeah. Mas- twenty one hours of knowing that the jets are back to being dysfunctional has it made it any better has eased, your frustration in the last twenty one hours. No. And I will say this, I'm going to say one thing that actually liked a wall. The people that you would think would be to mature adult in this whole situation. Okay. The last guy, I would think that, that would be would be levian bell and of all the stuff that I have heard Levy odd bell came out with the I mean, I it was unbelievable, what he took to higher beyond the high road eats. Bell, even though his boss, the general manager too much money. Yeah. Thinks he's overpaid. I would give him that much money, right? He took the high road. You're right. I mean you look at the owner who has no idea what he's on the owners. The owners in over his head. No matter. People may say he's over is freaking well over his head well over said, I can't believe this. Because when Christopher Johnson took over for the great ambassador Woody, I thought, well, can't be worse. Can't be held and it reminds. It's a reminder that is much as you may. Not like it owner of your team. It could always get yours. Could be worse. It's possible really. That someday the dolans and the wilpon could sell their team riders right? That are worse. But you know what? When when Christopher Johnson makes the dolans in a wilpon look like they rone's Pittsburgh, you know, the steinbrenners that that's saying something that so yesterday Christopher Johnson did meet the media. He did a conference call to get at there. Either. Of course I felt worse after the courts. Do you know I didn't feel better? I don't think he explained it. Well, I heard try to explain it this morning. I don't think it's explained. Well, they're dysfunctional. And the one thing I wanna hear is we've heard callers try to bring it up. This is not a debate about Mike macaque not the issue because that's not the that's a fine debate that we could have had in January that we all had in January, but in the middle of may, this is an embarrassment. Our assessment, though doubt about it. If you're going to dump the canyon, you'd dump them when you dumped bowls, that's when that was the time to do it. I would have had a problem with it, but you don't do it after the elect the guy I he helps high head culture basically stabs him in a back. Let's be honest about it, and there's no other way to say, but, but the Christopher says that's not our stores. There was no power to lying for months. They're all they're all telling the truth now. Of course, of course. But you to get much of let the GM sign all the free agents. And of course, you know, the free agent. They sign the head coach says he's he was getting paid too much money. What a joke and then you let them do draft. And then you fire him three weeks after the draft. But you know they're not a dysfunctional organization because everyone every winning championship Gallup organization. Does that kind of thing? But I heard that here's a positive. The positive positive might well since they're the only team looking for general manager, they're not competing with anybody. It's going to be disguised Douglas because Adam getting out of Kim gays. Right. Right magic that actually thinking that, that's a really important thing. Well, they're not competing with anybody believable, who cares. It's unbelievable. I mean, come on. How's that a good thing? Why? Because book because every other organization is competent, and they have it's like firing your manager during the playoffs and say, well, no one else is looking for so good. What a great spot to be in a great spot to be in. It's unbelievable. It's it's beyond. I just, it's just mind boggling to me, how this and you know, the worst part is the worst part of it all is you actually feeling pretty good about it. I mean, every jet fan, I talked to I think you would everybody Ernie IRA, my buddy. Tommy keener, go down the line when all the big jet fans that I know who all would feel in pretty even my wife. My wife, God bless. Three days ago, she says to me, you know, I'm really looking forward to jettison says to me. Yeah. Three days ago, as everybody's out there like, oh yeah, I feel good about it. We did. And this happened we did this bombshell yesterday. My wife wasn't listening to the show at all, you know, she's working and all of a sudden she text me. She's like I just went on Twitter to take a break. Why is Ella? Well jets trending right now LOL jets, things left out. I know. Hello, good. I had to Dr. Clueless. Right. Because out of absolute nowhere, they fire their general manager in may. And they took a head coach who sounds like a real good guy. Sounds like a guy to hang out, well dude guy screams at the dolphin about football, the goal, here's a guy that's nothing mazing thing is. It's not like this guy's got one Super Bowl. Maybe what play playoffs nine times fifty games over five hundred. I don't know who that would be. I'll actually might be caught. That's right. He wanted full power. We can't hide, you know that this guy who has done absolutely squat squat in the NFL, and he is now like the king. Like he knows what he is the football maven of all time. What do we cannot sell? I remember when they hired as one of the things we both said, concerned us is that he was never humble. Right. He got fired. They really wanted to be fired. He never had to go back and you know, offensive coordinator was never humbled. So if he was yelling at the owner of the dolphins, basically telling him what the hell do you know what I football right? Don't you think he's already done the same thing that Christopher Johnson and Christopher who doesn't probably coward, and said, you, right, Mr. nothing? What do you want all you want out? Okay. Fine. Is that really what's happening right now? Why should we believe type is, I think. Johnson Johnson, yes. You got. You gotta be kidding me. I just it's just when you think that this franchise can't sink any lower. They continue to find new ways to go down into dumps even more. I there's no other way to say. And I tell you right now they're gays and this guy, there's only one he could win eleven games this year. Okay. And make the playoffs to get even get and win a playoff game. It's not good enough is not good enough, because we have seen that act before again. And again, and again, so anything short of this guy, getting at least getting through a Super Bowl. You know what it is? You didn't get the job done. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. And I will be shocked if threes from that guy still coaching thing. I gotta tell you, right. no i completely agree with you and we got actually lower that number two to get over under one and a half they would if they go like five and eleven he's he's out because on i put this on adam gates is that fair i put a lot happened to mike mccann on adam gates okay if that's the case what do you think is gonna happen between adam gates and greg williams what do you think it's going to happen between adam gates and levi bell eventually right right what do you think is going to happen this is a guy who alienated some players in miami yelled at the owner of the team and said what the hell do you know about football and just got the general manager of the jets fired so inevitably something else is going to happen and unless they went all a whole lotta games like you said and succeed in the postseason this is going to end badly and i hope i'm wrong this is one of those things where we both hope for wrong i hope someday we're laughing about hall of famer adam gates well wow he really did he's the next ballot check we can only pray that would i would love to eat these words you would to gorse because we're fans i More than being right about things not about. It's not about being right. Right. Forget about Japan for fifty four years outright is that it's been all wrong. I think all the signs are there, that this is going to be a nightmare. Of course. There's no doubt about it. An absolute unmitigated nightmare. For all the reporters out there, and I do it away feel bad for them because you have sources you trust. And they end up lying to you. Right. There's nothing you can do. How can you if you're rich too? Meaning meadow or Brian Castillo ever trust. Another word from this lying organization. They lie to you, and they made you look like fools for the last two months they told you everything's fine, they told you this is all BS Adam gates pretended to be angry. Remember that? And all that stuff. So how can you trust anything anybody in this organization tells you how could you trust with this owner said yesterday, how could you believe any of it? And if you decide to believe any of it, oh, you're your little gullible. What can I tell you because right now I believe nothing comes from this franchise. How can you? The beat reporters look like fools, and I'd be annoyed if I'm them, and they should be Monique meta should be here's I'm looking at it. He's, he's man to go. You got lied to guy thing is out. He's gone. He's not happy about that, either. I don't think that any reporter wants to be made to look like a fool right fans. Want to be made like a fool. And so when Adam gay stands there to us as fans, forget the media now and says. PS. This isn't true with his eyes flickering all over the place. He looks he's a liar. This is called like it is. Sometimes I try to be nice. Let us a lot nuts lie. They lied. They did. And they probably still lying. Look what should be done. And of course, it's not going to be done because now Christopher Johnson is given the keys castle Adam gays should be done as gays should be out. He should just. Okay. You know what that's it? They're all gone, they're all gone, and they should fine. Mike McCarthy and begging to come back and take and take over to take this team over or at the very least. I'll tell you what I would do at the very if you couldn't get McCarthy at the very least, and I know he's got to go fight somebody to be coordinated offense coordinator, all that. I Greg Williams. Ajar. Why the very least that is either. But you know what? I can't have Adam gape, but we want you and I did not want Adam coaching state, we said from day, when we found out the name out of days we, we. Out the Monday after is fi through the name. What we started almost five vomited on the air when I heard that we both want them a coffee. And I said this yesterday. The immediate end when went out and did a hatchet job on Mike McCarthy, they went and did at freaking hatchet job on a guy who you know, very well could be famous.

So really bad situation. Ongoing across north central Palm Beach county director go over to max to for men, and we can see of a three dimensional perspective of the storm here. Again, a little bit of weakening trend still not going up to forty thousand feet, but you know, the three dimensional perspective always gives us the indication of you know, how powerful and how strong the are. And just again, mostly over the western parts of Palm Beach county, including the Anchorage, including western Palm Beach gardens the locks Haxhi basivity storms continue to head off towards the south and east at a speed of about. Twenty miles an hour. This also interesting because with the forecast and the weather service was low chance of rain for today, not trying to disarm, but what we were all looking at was the storm mainly moving inland, which they are right now in staying away from the coast and yet this storm the cell is moving into the southeast, which is certified unexpected. But we've been tracking this for the past hour and a half, two hours weather in Florida. The last six or seven days now, I just did I took sort of a measurement the area that is encompassed under the severe thunderstorm warnings. And it's about thirty three miles across. So we're talking a pretty good size area of lake Okeechobee. Yeah. If you guys want to pull up max one's real quick. You can see just how large this area is I've taken that yellow line running across so about thirty three miles. They just obviously lifted the one severe thunderstorm warning in obviously this area that we're concerned with is shifting to the southeast as these storms move southeast. That's why the one warning was just robbed for the northwest corner, and sort of the north central portion of Palm Beach county. Of course, we are seeing the concern though, shifting closer and closer to West Palm Beach. You see this along a line.

It is Jessica Mendoza our John Franko. You think maybe he could have taken those salaries get rid of fifty more people in the frontal Adam Jones now Dana, Steve I love the team. I love to match I'm positive about the I think can always gonna hit. But I mean, I could you got a couple of guys from Brooklyn could've done a better Brodie. I don't know what he's going on. And I tell you the more I listened to you more on becoming a convert. I never really wanted to acknowledge it. It's going to be tough for the Mets as as long as the wilpon. So there I mean, you know, they just are not going about this the right way. This makes no sense to me. This is a joke. You can't. I can't tell you the heat. I took a work today. Well, no. Unless in the met fans would rather. Hear about players coming to the team instead of front office personnel. It's that simple. And you make an interesting comment because they're spending money with the front office. And of course, it's a lot cheaper arguably higher front office. Whereas the now then it is to go out for some star baseball players nothing new with the wilpon. They needing to sell the team with the disconnect. They have their fans. This is nothing new Chris is an calling from Connecticut. Chris you're on the fan. Thank you for the call. I Steve how are you? I'm okay. How about yourself? All right, Chris. Yeah. Steve, listen, I I'm on the same ways wife is a previous caller. Jessica Mendoza they could have paid a saber Matric one hundred and fifty thousand a year than her. At least tell me you're trying to get better. I mean, the Mets the wilpon gone from not wanting to spend money to now wasting it. Well, here here's the thing. Well, again, it's front office personnel. He can make the same comments about lighter. And with with Franco, they may have a little bit more with the closeness with the fan base because they played for the meds. But sometimes being and listen closely to what I'm about to say because I believe this sometimes being politically correct is correct. Hiring mendoza. She is a baseball lifer. She knows her stuff and anyone who has heard her work or seen. Work read her work knows. She knows something about the game of baseball. Again. You could always make the argument and the pundits in the cynics. Well, of course, well, they they've got to be politically correct here. But sometimes being politically correct is correct. And if she's going to be involved in baseball operations and baseball development, I think her import can only help the front office lighter and Franco, I'm not so sure about what is it? Jim Jim is calling from Jersey City. Jim you're on the fan. What's going on? Yeah. A little bit. Yes. Try it again. Okay. Can you hear me now have much better? Okay. So could just couple of things quickly. I totally agree with the previous callers Jessica thinks. Okay. I just think. Help sell them at the end of the day. I I see injuries that. I don't see the that's doing that. Well, I just I'm not sold on this guy. Well, yeah. It starts from top down. They just they don't have it. Okay. You happy. You have to start with him. I mean, it's not. You know, again, well to woman they hired and we're going to art of all take a look at all the people they have in the front office. I don't think they have enough desks. I don't think they have enough chairs and Brodie van band wagon selling selling hope selling dreams. Yeah. Quickly quickly. 'cause I don't want to go ahead. That's okay. Go ahead Yankees issue. I don't think they're gonna make it because injuries pitching his light. And I think that some of the big guys you can get injured. And lastly my islanders. Maybe you can mix down callers. Great if they make should make the playoffs. Hopefully by bigger deeper than Toronto, anyhow, like your show and autism comments. Well, thanks a lot. He's trying to be kind and gentle because he knows that I've been so supportive of the Icelanders. They've lost a couple in a row and and fill out of first place, but we know the comeback. Tom is calling from queens, and Tom you're on the fan of Newark city. What's happening, Tom? How you doing? Okay. Stoop to office started this year. I mean, we can't stop him for years. So well, I mean, you you may have mentioned that too. They will take what was I guess so far ten seconds into spring training has looked pretty good and Lewis says has been getting good publicity. We're ten seconds in the spring training. And and of course out there on the market is the Dallas Tanko and the GIO Gonzalez coming off subpar years for them. That's for sure. And for or for anyone else for that matter. But listen, we'll see how desperate the Yankees are. And they need help with the rotation. If you FCC Sebastian from what I understand with his farewell tour. I mean, he may get himself involved in some broadcasting shores some broadcasting duties, which takes the focus away, of course, from collecting all. All the gifts. He is going to be collecting. I'm sure as his farewell tour commences beginning in April. When he makes his first start the season. Of course starts March twenty eight but the bottom line is the Yankees do need help. And sesa- doesn't excite anyone. Neither does lowest saiga the lowest Sega, but the bottom line is learned to pronounce his name if he wins a couple of games getting the opportunity to make a couple of starts for the Yankees. That's for sure Brian is calling from Oakland, New Jersey, and Brian you're on the fan. What's happening? Steve thanks for taking the call. Always nice talking to you same here. Brian. Thank you for making the call. What's going on? I called last week about Landon Collins, and you know, I I'm just not really understand what the giants are doing here. You know, like, it seems like, you know, with rumors earlier this week to trade in Vernon. And you know, I as you said they got rid of snacks. And I it just feels like the defense is in complete rebuild mode right now yet on the other side of the ball. You know, you're saying that e wise coming back for another year. So, you know, can you really be incomplete rebuild mode. If you if you you're bringing him back, and I just feel like with the team it's like zero steps forward four steps back with the moves that they're making here. And just wondering what they're gonna do on on the on the defense side of the ball. If you know, you're really moving all these pieces, and you know with Collins, unfortunately, we're really getting nothing back for him. You know, and he was probably our best player on the defense. There's the key not trading them when they had the chance, and they got rid of ally. Apple, of course, and ended up in New Orleans making some plays and got rid of snacks, the whole thing if they figured then in that neighborhoods as they should have traded. Landon Collins if he wasn't going to be a part of the defensive coordinator with his system if he wasn't going to be a part if he was more part of the problem than the solution. Then they should have traded him. And there's the key to all of it. We have to take a quick break. We'll get right back to your telephone calls. Get into the update the whole thing. No from the one eight seven seven three three seven six six six six number to call on your fan. State farm Bill..
"wilpon" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Least three people that we know of who would vote no to an extension for Jacob Seig Rahm. Jeff wilpon his daddy. Fred wilpon and a writer from the San Diego union, trivial. Yes, we were saying the honeymoon be over for bandwagon selling hope in the very beginning. We were in love with him. He looked good. He sounded good. He was selling hope and apparently. Once upon a time. He wanted the money for his side Graham, Debbie client. It was pay or allow him to play where they pay. So now, here's your arbitration raise and behind closed doors. You know Jeff in predator are smiling. So apparently is not smiling. But knowing from what we know he won't take it out on himself. He won't take it out on his team. And he is not going to take it out. We believe on the fans he has from his city. He loves what he will do if he isn't extended is take his baseball and his game. Elsewhere in two years and make enough money to buy a full page ad in the New York Post and the new York Daily News leading all of us. No, he had no choice moving on and moving forward. And no matter what takes place, but we now and the twelfth never I don't think fan skier will ever turn on Jacob degrom ever. He says never. Not ever. Will. We turn on Jacob degrom because he and we know that team that he works for a team that reluctantly may give him an extension won't find any joy in doing. So they find joy in real estate development. And why they even own a team in the first place. Let's be honest. It's a lot more fun to hang around the batting cage in spring training and in the clubhouse during the regular season instead of hanging around developers and contractors and hard ads. That's probably why they own the team. It isn't for love of ownership and warning to do the right thing, and they are not wise enough or smart enough to know that doing the right thing is the. Extension for them. And for Jacob degrom. Whether you're on the side of player or management, whether you're on the side of Blair or union, whether you see more sooner than later, a work stoppage count on Cy Graham, dick continue to give what he has every time. He takes the ball with his competitiveness his pride. His professionalism. If only the wilpon had the same sense of doing the right thing if only bandwagon could sway or convince the coupons they Graham benefit from the extension. But apparently, no, no, no. Apparently, the wilpon would have as spend all this time talking about who extend or not two weeks stand instead of the team improving itself. And yes, we would all agree. The team the New York Metropolitans are improved taking on a thirty six year old second baseman with a hundred and twenty million laughed, and let's not forget Rajai Davis, and Greg or Blanco and only hours ago at your Barry. So who has? What the payroll to extend anybody or God forbid, go after a top flight free agent. Mike Harper Machado and only free agents. Well, and only free agency itself is at a slower pace than Machado running out a ground ball. And we're hearing, of course, what else is new that. What are for may end up with the Phillies? How many months have gone by the troop been hearing that rumor rising you get the impression that Fred as we were alluding to or Lear you get the impression that Fred bought the team because you don't sign autographs, and, you know, make the back page being just real estate tycoon dealing with developers designers contractors and construction. Workers. Fred was well Fred was and continues to have all his fun with batting elements more so than hard ads. We'll take some calls and do some things and hopefully you'll like what we're what we're going to be doing as we will proceed on a three and a half hour holiday some no from the one eight seven seven and three three seven six six six number to call on your. When it comes to your identity and the personal information on your devices. There's no soundtrack.

"Partner up Jones, Mike wilpon, Tim t vote is ink gauge Tony do you? Remember popping the question. Tony kornheiser. Of course, I got down on one in east looked up into her eyes riana said for you. And then she called for security gonna stay. Yeah. If if I showed you. Fifteen pictures riana was one of the other fourteen just like people in the in the public. I would you know for certain which was react. Yes. Especially if you showed me pictures, for example of the Cleveland Indian, okay? Not less hard. I would not miss the PTI boys and girls in today's episode. Nick foles may break the Bank, Kyle Lowry appears headed for the NFL and Steve Young joins us to talk about this weekend's playoff games. But we begin today with yet another young quarterback whisperer getting one of the vacant head coaching jobs in the NFL a couple of weeks ago. The Miami Dolphins fired Adam gates after three years and twenty three and twenty five today is being reported. The New York Jets are set to sign him so gays goes from AFC east to AFC east will Bundy gay certain second gig. So soon I'm gonna get there. In the meantime, wake me when the run on experienced qualified black coaching candidates starts. I will let me know when that right? What goes I've got an alarm set for that. So I'll let you both may be van winkle before they get to that run. Not particularly no, Adam gays. Didn't do anything in Miami. Screamed out you gotta have him. I mean, we replace Don Shula anybody's hearts is south Florida. We've been Jimmy Johnson's. So no, no, no, no. I heard this that I just went really we have gone back in time to a very lazy time in NFL hiring where owners and executives in the NFL front offices seem scurred, and they would just rather reach out to anybody mother than act with some sort of boldness, and intellect and depth and come up with new fresh exciting candidates. They're lazy. So I looked at this one. I've looked at all the coaching hires. And I'm okay so far to this point with all the coaching hires. Matt floor might be a little bit of a stretch things. Very kingsbury. Maybe a little bit of a stretch. But he is in affiliated with some very young quarterbacks. This guy. I don't get. I don't get this. He. Was six and ten last year. He started out three and all this year closed for nine and one of those four was on that miracle situation against doing land that you know, that's not him had nothing to do with that. So the only thing I could think of is that the head to head with the jets three years he's five and one, but Mike he's thirteen and seven against the rest of the against the restaurant thirteen seventeen. I don't see the people in in New York in the jets offices. They only watch their own game. That's eight thought Adam gays was was George Halas. And by the way, I don't think that Sam darnold at the moment. I think he's behind Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield out a moment. But a lot of people gays. We into the lazy portion this is done for NFL hiring. It seems yesterday. Tony Dungy told us. It simply isn't financially practical for the eagles to keep Nick foles. And Carson Wentz today. We have our friend Mike Freeman writing in Bleacher report, the foles figures to be one of the most pursued potential free agents ever Freeman sites..
