Before the Giants open their season Thursday, the 24th against the Dodgers in L. A. And the A's the following night at home against the Angels ace first baseman Matt Olsen on the challenge of playing first base with very little social distancing between himself and the base runner. I don't think I'll be wearing a mask plan or anything. I just got to trust the guys on the other team are are going to be smart, too. You know, I get a guy to close to me say, come back a little bit, But I think the whole plan of this is tow be able to do this is as normal as possible. If everybody is doing the right thing off the field, and when we get here, you know the point is for us to be able to come here and play a normal game. The A's picked a battle Houston for first place in the whole West, the Giants picked battle Colorado To stay out of last in the NL West.

A TV station he believes he contracted the virus, Miss Son who was displaying symptoms. He, his wife and daughter all later tested positive for the virus
los Angeles County can't keep up with coronavirus testing demand
"Brand. More than three million Americans have been infected with the Corona virus, and more than 130,000 have died. So that makes the U. S outbreak the worst in the world. An important part of controlling the virus is knowing who has it. And that means testing well. More than four months into this. The U. S. Is still not testing enough. About half a 1,000,000 people were tested on Monday, but experts say we should be testing a 1,000,000 people every day. It's about twice as many here in Los Angeles. It's tough to get a quick appointment and tough to get fast results. Some people say they've had to wait days for an appointment and more than a week to get their results. Colleen Shelby is a reporter at the Los Angeles Times. She's been reporting on this and she joins me now. Hi. Fine. Thank you for having me, have you? Well, According to the mayor, anyone wants to test can get a test. But is that actually actually true? That is sure. In theory, however, because of the high demand really in the past month or so, since Memorial Day. There's been so many more people that have been trying to get test, especially since officials have kind of stressed the fact that you could be asymptomatic and a super spreader. Because of the high demand. There have not been on enough slots to kind of allow for the number of people who are requesting tests. So when that was the situation seems to occur. It does seem that people who are showing symptoms who are in high risk environments who have come into contact with a known person to exposure are the priority in that queue. When you have to kind of give all of the information about your situation, and the asymptomatic people who might not be in a similar situation are the ones that may not be able to get tested first. Well, so that might encourage people Tio fudge the questionnaire and say that they have symptoms when maybe they don't It's possible. I think, In some cases, you know, I heard from people who said that they had some gyms and they were still having trouble getting tested. And really, that could be it for a variety of reasons, but mostly because when you go through the county's website that includes the city sights and the county sight, you are kind of thrown through different different programs to try to get a test results. So if you try in one area and you don't get a slot, you might not know to try somewhere else. So it's a little bit of committing some time to try to get a test. But even after that time, you might you might struck out. And when you go to a place like Dodger Stadium, you have to wait for hours. In that ideal scenario. I think it's supposed to take a relatively short amount of time because you have an appointment. You hopefully get there, you'd be able to drive through in mind situation. I got tested a few weeks back after covering the protests, and I got tested last shift on a Friday and it took me about an hour from the time I got to Dodger Stadium to get my packet for the self test. So I think again. The timing is fluctuating because I've heard from other people who have been able to get through. You know, in 10 minutes from the time they got to a location to the time they finished, so I think that what we're seeing is that there are maybe certain days that are at capacity that people are getting there on time and everything's moving along smoothly. And then there are other places where perhaps there's You know, maybe more people than the location could handle at that moment, and then the results coming back for you. They came back. Fairly quickly or not. Right. I got my results within two days, but I've heard from other people that you know, they've been told that it would take five days. They've been told that it would take seven days. I spoke with someone who got tested on Monday and was told at the site that it would probably take between 7 to 10 days for him to get those results back. So it does seem like again. That number is fluctuating Tio, which poses a bit of difficulty when you're trying to understand the true reality, the true scope of reality of this virus and the results are coming back. You know, maybe two weeks after you have potentially been
How to Be a Vision-Driven Leader with Michael Hyatt
"I was in the coaching conversation with the business owner, the other day and we were walking through some of the powerful questions that every business leader should be answering questions one was. Why do you exist as a business? And they had the answer that question question to? What you stand for as a business, and they were able to answer that question as well and then the third question I asked him was wear. Is Your Business going and I'll never forget? They looked at me and they said I don't know. From the Ramsey network is the entree viewership podcast where we help business leaders themselves, their teams, and their profits I'm your host Alex Judd and the answer to that question of where are we going is found in your organization's vision and today we talked to someone who's both a practitioner and teacher on this topic of clarifying and executing on a crystal clear vision today. We're talking with Michael Hyatt and Michael. Hyatt has had a lot of success in the arena of vision and growth with the company that is currently running. It's a lesson that he actually learned from a failure when he tried to start his first publishing house at thirty one years old. We started back in nineteen, eighty six, and we had the good fortune of publishing oral hershiser's biography. Now he was the themed Pitcher of the dodgers, and they had just won the world series. He was a household name. Everybody'd heard of him. The book rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list and it was there for seven months. And so it brought in a ton of cash a lot of notoriety and thinks that happens. Is you become successful as you start attracting a lot of opportunities, but if you're not careful, opportunities or distraction, show up on your doorstep, and you can't tell the difference between opportunities and distractions so distractions masquerades opportunities, so it happened us, so we decided you know we were bulletproof. In everything we touched turned to gold, so we thought we'll publish. Reference Books will publish. Gift books will publish children's books. We've been published a large Bible project. The problem was it fractured our focus it. Our resources and that business went bust. And, the reason it happened was because we didn't have a vision that we're starting with. It would be akin to deciding. You're going to add an addition onto your house. And as long as the Home Depot truck shows up and keeps unloading lumber and sheet rock, and you just keep building adding on, and that's exactly what we did. There was no blueprint. There was no plan and we failed for lack of vision, which is exactly interestingly what the book of proverbs says that without vision the people perish. That is so fascinating and I think it's one of those things that. That in leadership, courses and classes and books. We read about it all the time. You have to have a vision. If you're going to be leader, but so often, it seems like they dismissed. Thing that no one knows what it actually is, so can you? Can you set the record straight right now? When you say you need to have a vision as a leader? What are you actually talking about? Not. Talking about is a vision statement. You know we've been told that we need to have this short. Brief almo, slogan or motto that we could put on a coffee Mug or that. We had put on a bumper sticker. Can't. That's not robust enough so when I talk about vision. I'm talking about a vision script, and specifically I mean at this way. It's a written document. That's three to five pages in length. Okay, so it's going to be more robust and pithy thing but something. That's really thoughtful. The describes a future state. It outlines a clear, inspiring, practical and attractive picture of your organization's, future. Here's it's fun. It describes reality as you see it. Three to five years from now. And it's written in the present tense as though it's already happened. Now when you begin to do that, will you begin to visualize something like that? Right in the present tense? That's the first process of creating anything. And I basically learned this process the big idea from Stephen, Covey who said begin with the end in mind. And so to start a business or even a department, that's a part of a large organization without a vision. Is kind of a fool's errand. Leadership leadership presupposes that you know where you're going. You're going somewhere. You know where you're going. But if you don't know where you're going, right, how can you lead anybody there? Yeah. It's gotTa start. With vision. You jumped into this four terms already clear, inspiring, practical and attractive. I want us to jump into kind of the tactical of what those words look like. You're just a bit, but I love the fact that you say that this is robust, so it's not a pithy statement is catching that vision. Is that something that comes from? Is it a skill that can be developed, is it? A wiring is a gifting as A. A personality trait because sometimes we call people visionary, and it just makes it seem like okay well. They're visionary, which means if I'm not a visionary than I can't do right. That's a lot of people. Give up before they start because they think of somebody like Steve Jobs. That's right, you know. He could stand up and not only hold the stage, but I mean he. Had you totally into that reality distortion zone. Actually vision you know. His wife famously said at his memorial service that Steve Not only saw reality clearly, but he saw what reality lacked. And why it was imperative to bridge that gap between what he saw, and what could be so every other cell manufacturer saw that the market was saturated that every cell phone that could possibly be invented had been invented besieged, said Nope I got a different idea, and it was the iphone. As we know it today,

MLB Restart: Everything You Need to Know About Spring Training 2.0
"Jesse the day is finally here. Baseball players are reporting. Play Ball. I mean that's exactly what everyone is thinking. We're finally at a place where we can start watching baseball instead of just talking about Labor problems. Jesse Rogers covers baseball for ESPN. Jesse you've been covering mobis attempt to get restarted since they shut down and today. You've got this piece out on Spring Training two point zero David. Sean filled which you informed us. They're calling summer camp a lot of sense to it. There's a lot to cover, so let's start here. After weeks of contentious and ultimately failed negotiations between baseball, and the Players Association which we documented here. The League is finally implemented a sixty game season, which is set to start on July, twenty third or twenty fourth players are reporting two camps today in many cases of their home stadiums. What do you expect that scene to look like? Packing lots are going to turn into intake testing sites. I think that's the first thing we're GONNA. See obviously. Every stadium is different. Some will be accessible for fans or cameraman to shoot. Others will be. Accessing let's face it so to see a line of cars obviously throughout the day. For throughout the next couple of days, pulling in players are going to get tested, and then they're going to go back home for the next twenty four or forty hours whenever they are cleared to come back or if they have a positive test, they're gonNa, say stayed home. They're gonNA. have to go through some jump through some hurdles. Jump through some hoops. I should say before they can come back and start spring training two point, oh, or or summer camp as you mentioned so first and foremost. Is The testing outside the stadiums? Nobody's GonNa go down in the locker room in the clubhouse in the traders room and get tested because you're positive, the already potentially spreading it around you. There's been sort of names or numbers trickling out on baseball players like players in other sports testing positive starting today. Are we just going to get a wave of numbers of positive tests? You never know if we're get it today or twenty four forty eight hours from now because there is a lag time, basically the answer your question is yes. Some people think as many as one hundred fifty players are going to test positive. Now there's up to eighteen hundred players reporting so maybe one fifty doesn't sound like a lot of other people think it might be a lot less than that fifty to seventy five players, but there will be dozens of players testing positive. That is the expectation, and then of course those players have to be isolated before they could get back on the field. That involves being tested in coming up with negative tests twice over the span of twenty four hours to separate tests. And there's a couple of hurdles after that as well, but yeah, the expectation is there will be positive tests in an potentially in dozens or more in the coming days. So what happens when players either test negative or recover, and then they get in basically, what does a typical summer training day look like? One thing they're going to try to do is obviously social distance as much as they can. When the whole team has to be on the field, they have to be on the field, but they will do their best to stagger some workouts. A picture might throw separate from everyone else because that's the only thing he's doing that day, and then he leaves the park. Obviously, the game does provide. Provide some distance just in where they are situated situated on the field, unlike some of the other sports now during a game, there are moments where runner, obviously at first base is going to be next to that first baseman or what he slides into second base, and he's getting tagged, but the sport does lend itself to being socially distance as much as any other sport. That's out there. So this will be happening at home ballparks across the country correct. Yes they decided a few weeks ago to do this. That's where the teams want to do it. That's where the players want to do it. It turns out Arizona and Florida are spiking also. That's where spring training is held for all thirty teams, and it probably would not have been a good idea to be down there right now. Anyway, but players didn't want to go back there. In hundred degree he and being some sort of bubble. The League was trying to formulate. They said let's just do spring training at our home ballparks. Yes, we won't be able to play the other teams like we normally do in spring training early GonNa have intra squad games until the very end. Where maybe the cubs play the white sox dodgers play the angels. Mets play the Yankees, but for the most part. It's going to be just their team inside their home stadium.

Unspecified Dodgers employees test positive for coronavirus
"As the Dodgers get ready to start a sixty game season they're already dealing with positive corona virus tests under president Andrew Friedman knows that players will test positive during the season and factoring assume conference with reporters he admitted members of the organization I've already tested positive including one player but he wouldn't say who that player was none of those positive tests have resulted in symptoms he said that would have been problematic now under the challenges of starting this season there are tons of logistical hurdles and challenges winning satellite sites staffed clubhouse how that's gonna work in satellite sites if you're doing something this quickly and when you layer on the health and safety part of it trying to make sure that that's front and center in everything you do now it just adds more complexity the Dodgers first practice will be July third at Dodger
"dodgers" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"And I was with the Dodgers what would you say if now you can you had a number years under your belt is there a draft you look and said man we really we really kick but that particular year is there one that stands out over the others that that's a really tough one well you know my last year in Oakland was where could it go but it is staff pick Matt Chapman with a first round pick which was at the end of the first route so I mean I was just a moment pic of terrific players Japanese turned out to be and you know when I was a down south working for the other employer we had a couple good drafts but I I'm sure your listenership doesn't wanna hear about they don't want to hear what about this now we we talked about this earlier far on how much you guys looking at what's going on with the KBO or bonus Liga soccer which is starting but some of their soccer league's premier league and leaguer gonna be certain that pretty soon how much you look at what they're doing and how they're doing it and how there could be a crossover between what they're doing what you're doing what you like what you don't like what you could would change how much do you take take notice of what's going on in others in other sports communities yeah I think there's two different that the learning that we can have from some believe that of start up already won it yet how they're going about it either keeping players safe the tech protocol that they're putting in place an individual teams like us and the legal office of had a lot of communication with those weeks about what they're doing what is working and you know what remains a work in progress the other thing just to the stand you know I'm sure you guys have done this to just tuning in and and evaluating the the TV experience was out of the house fans are going to be consuming our game and you know you kind of think of what could be better what could make this more exciting and you know the one thing about watching the beach KBL games baseball it's always going to every sport can be better with fans but it's interesting about baseball because so much of the television broadcasters picture versus batter and you know the fan interaction or you know you just don't see that many fans in that particular shop center field so I think baseball kinda well set up to have a TV production where it doesn't seem too awkward it's going to be a little bit but watching the KPL game the other day you know I was surprised that you know how much I it'll be kind of zoned out are tuned out on the fact that they weren't banned there because so much of it is just that you know model you mano pitcher versus batter matchup that you watch your course it will take some of that you can get some of the stadiums I know I was watching a game in Tucson a couple day nights ago they didn't have the fans behind home plate the cardboard cut outs one of that stadiums in a camera which one it was but I mean if you looked at him you would tell obviously they're not fans but if you're watching pitcher catcher pitcher batter it doesn't you did that it's Roger the negative spaces and draw your eye balls to that it's like it looks normal because that's kind of what the fans look like other than the fact they're moving a little bit you're concentrating on the game but it to me it's okay how can you make this as normal as possible like the Bundesliga had crowd noise pilot in over the telecast FS one did that and it sounded good you don't see a ton of fans insane in the soccer matches but do anything they can do to make it seem normal that doesn't dry your eyes are years away from a going god this is weird anything they can do in that regard I think is a bonus yeah I think it's going to be there to think they're gonna happen one as fans are just going to acclimate to these broadcasts will be different and you know once you watch five or ten games that way it's gonna feel a lot more normal and to it I just think the broadcasts are going to get better and better and the people that work in that realm you know really talented and I know you gotta figure out a way to make it fun and interesting and exciting and probably get some level of fan interaction gauge mint in a different sort of way but you know I I I think that you know people on on that side of the business are going to figure out a lot of ways to make the television broadcast compel yeah I would think the player input to as much as they want to give I would think player input would have a you know it would be a factor in that as well because the more comfortable your guys are you know especially at home or whatever you know your whole ballpark is going to be in these interesting times I think it's comfortable with those guys you want to make them that would be one of the most important things of this whole process absolutely just in terms of using you know the sound system thank you guys that it's that you know the piping in a crowd this is you know not necessarily just for the broadcast but the books for the guys who were there and you know every team now has the you know the gigantic jumbo tron out in center field maybe there's a way to do that there's a way to type in you know some fans and kind of assume like grade or something like that just to make it feel like more of a social experience and I think all that stuff you know when we get to that point they're gonna be some really interesting things in experiments that you know wind up making it to your point not just a a good fan experience on TV but as normal as possible for the guy to get a feel for hunt from what you've heard has had teams handled this downtime you know in different ways and and did you get did you guys develop any kind of a strategy of how to try to utilize this time to be best prepared other than just say Hey guys stay in shape have you had kind of an over arching plan that you've tried to implement yeah the cool you know captives you know I know he's been on with you guys has been great about being cut to the coaching staff keeping them on their toes stimulating games and kind of going through the in game model so you know once the season starts they have a good deal for the roster and how they're going to use it again you know something that's been a common refrain is is just communication making sure that you know we're in touch with our players know what they're working on provide them resources where we can I mean that's just been a broader societal thieves just staying connected with people will be more important than ever so you know I don't know how how how much you call that a strategy but that's probably been the most important thing just to keep morale up and keep people feeling connected so you know hopefully we get this thing going it won't feel like you know worse we're starting from ground zero will have that built up something over the course of the couple months you know it's interesting I just saw this taxes is going to allow twenty five percent fans at outdoor events which is interesting I don't think California is ever gonna follow Texas lead when it comes to to politics or a lot of other things but it does make you think you know what maybe if things trend in the right direction and who knows to sync it all go to hell in a hand basket and three days of me we have no idea what this thing is going but if things continue along this line maybe there will be some fans I mean it doesn't have to be on forty thousand fans are thirty eight could be ten thousand I'm gonna be like a maze game so you did something like that at least you laughed at that thank you I appreciate that but you could have a little bit Billy Beane online three what what outposts that that would even be funny don't even be like I didn't think that was gonna be possible for housing you will probably have to deal with no fans throughout the season and we may it's a possibility but the fact that they're going to do it again you could you could you could see how it goes and maybe there is a place where you can have like three people per row and have a role in between them and stuff like that so maybe maybe there is hope that there could be could be some fans in the stadium before the season ends yeah I mean you know Thomas as much as you and I like to work things out for our society out during these interviews yes the same thought which is you know you see you know slowly they're encouraging signs that you know more more stores at full retail outlets are opening up you know more parks are opening up and you start saying well you know if we can open up part could have these circles where people have to stay inside you know could you do something like that in a gigantic stadium they usually beds forty fifty thousand people and you know can you do it safely and clearly Texas is starting by adding more and more people are are are are to you better look we we haven't seen the end of fans coming to see him in a reversal we will get there at some point it's just a question of what the case is I do think there's going to be an intermediate phase where you know they're gonna be capacity limits but some fans are going to be let back into the stadiums and arenas you don't want the public health official site that safe and who knows I mean it could it could be towards the end of the season I think that would be great that would upset a lot of people because you know this is ultimately about you know we professional sports are very much a spectator experience and I know you know the front office's management players everybody feels that way so hopefully we get back to that as soon as possible Ron if you if you guys you know court of the reports might be expanded rosters and maybe even I'll see extremely large taxi squad and there may not be a minor league season we kind of were certain understand that's kind of the dynamic of this of what we're seeing I'm just kind of wanted to get like a comarca Luciano who's such a great young prospect in your system is there any consideration to think to put a guy like that on your on your taxi squad so to speak with no real intention of playing in just so he keeps developing as opposed to shutting it down and you get a lost year how you guys doing those things absolutely I think it's gonna went.
"dodgers" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Do you think about the dodgers roster? They already have the reigning Mvp with cody. Bellinger they also have the former. Mvp AND CY young winner with Clayton Kershaw. So how all of these. Big noted players sort of fit together on one roster. They fit together like a lovely twenty six piece puzzle. And and that's the beauty of what the dodgers have done. They have constructed a roster. That really doesn't have. I'm not gonNA say any but doesn't have clearly visible flaws in that particularly goes for the everyday lineup. I mean you can put any number of players that any number of positions you can cody bellinger and Centerfield. One day playing first base. The next day. Compla- Max Muncie at first base and we can shift them over to second where. Oh by the way Gavin Lux whose top-five prospect and all baseball is GONNA play as well but if he's not there and if there's a left on the mound you can put key Gate Hernandez in their second base and he absolutely destroys lefthanded pitching. He also can play left field. Maybe a little bit of Centerfield but you've got AJ pollock and left field to you. Know if there's a right hander. Anyone Output Jack Petersen in there he crushes right handed pitching in. You've got cory seager. Shortstop Justin Turner Third. Will Smith is going to be a star behind the plate in bets guy in right field. You're talking about an incredible group of talent. But you're also talking about an incredible payroll that just was able to recklessly go. Add mookie betts because they wanted to when you look at a team like the orioles this year spending what forty five million dollars on their entire payroll and the dodgers are spending close to two hundred twenty. I mean it's just that level of imbalance as the rich seemingly get richer. Is that good for baseball. Yeah it's not great. It's not great but that's what happens when you have an UNCAPPED SYSTEM. That's also what happens when you're in a sport where money doesn't necessarily equal success if the dodgers just went out spending money like literally that's all they did. We've seen that before. We saw that with the New York Yankees throughout the two thousand. Ten's didn't work and and I think the Yankees really change their mindset and started understand what the dodgers have long understood. Which is you cannot be successful doing what you do. If you're not developing players from within if you're not counter-balancing those larger salaries with minimum salaries from players that you have developed whether it's via the draft or international free agency. You have to have a balance of those two and when you see the number of players that the dodgers have developed it shows just how great their farm system really has been for everything that we've talked about the greatness of the when you look at the National League across the board when teams should the dodgers the most worried about no one. I mean. Look when you have a system in which there is a five game series. You should be afraid of everyone but over the course of one hundred sixty two game season. There's nobody who's going to challenge the dodgers. There's just not I mean the Arizona diamondbacks Jason a really good team. They're probably going to be double digits behind the dodgers in the National League West. Even if you go out east let's look at the defending world series champions The Washington nationals. Good the really. Good the got Max Shurer. They've got Stephen Strasburg. And Patrick Corbin Audible Sanchez in the rotation. They beat the dodgers last year. Even though they didn't have as much talent. That's the trouble with going as far in on. Mookie Betts as the dodgers. Did I absolutely think it was the right move? I absolutely think that it was at the right time but in the end when we look back on the two thousand twenty season there is a possibility and not an insignificant possibility either that the dodgers lose in the division series like they did last year and at that point with bet steel. Be Worth it. I mean the answers gotta be no right. Well let me counter that though I mean the answer is no anytime you acquire player. Sure I understand world series or bust but the dodgers are making money. Anyway they WANNA look at it so they're putting themselves in the best chance to try and win a World Series Championship. Is it as simple for the organization as World Series or bust? Yes I think it is at this point I think. The dodgers judge their seasons where they are right now with the talent. They have based on whether they have a gold ring encrusted with diamonds. That they're giving out on opening day the next year or whether they don't I think it is that binary and certainly you can take positives out of a season which you don't win a world series and have good feelings about the things that you achieve that accomplished but if you were to give truth serum to everybody in that organization. I think everyone would say we. WanNa win and we want to win. Now if you had to decide to to come in with an educated opinion and you're risking my house on it not yours my house on our friendship and it's dodgers of the field to win it all this year. Who who you take it. I'm GonNa take your question and twisted a little. If you had one team to choose to win the world series this year. Who WOULD IT BE? My answer would be the Los Angeles dodgers..
"dodgers" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Jeff Passan how are you doing on this fine wonderful day? I am both fine and wonderful Jason. Thank you Jeff. Passan covers major league baseball for ESPN. He's been in Florida and Arizona reporting on Spring Training. So we're GONNA talk dodgers today and they might be the biggest story because of what they did this off season that starts with the massive trade with the Red Sox if you had to give the mookie Betts trade story a tagline mookie betts the dodgers blank. It happened then. It didn't happen and then it happened again and the fact that it happened. I think really salvaged in offseason for the dodgers where their fans felt like they were. Fiddling is Rome Burns and it was interesting because if the dodgers had not gone out and traded for mookie Betts this winter or the spring as it were they still would have been the best team in the National League and they would have been the best team in the National League probably by a pretty healthy margin but to go out and get a guy who is arguably the second best player in baseball really speaks to just how important winning now is for this organization. I wanted to give everybody a peek behind the curtain of Jeff Passan. So walk me through those sort of the moment. You've I started hearing that this could be on the horizon. Well off season. There was a feeling that somebody big was going to get moved and you know as as time ticked away going towards spring training. The sentiment was that that was less and less likely. I remember getting a text and it was very simple. It said mookie dodgers traction and when you get something like that you know the alarm bells. Go off a little bit. I started poking around hearing. Yeah there may actually be some legs this deal but there were so many different iterations of it in terms of water the dodgers gonNA TAKE BACK IS PRICE. GonNa go with him. What sorts of prospects would they give up? We're following a developing story. That could be a blockbuster in baseball. The dodgers are in deep discussions to acquire star right fielder. Mookie betts from the Red Sox and bit of a snag in the mookie. Betts deal to the dodgers. The blockbuster three-way trade has been held up because of questions surrounding me health of at least one player. Pitching Prospect Bruce. Dr Red Sox didn't like the medical congressional who had Tommy John Surgery in the past. It started to come together and then obviously it looked like it might fall apart for a moment. What your thoughts. When it looked like the deal was sort of breaking up. The dodgers were not going to let mookie. Betts play for another team this year. Even as Boston and Minnesota we're negotiating and trying to figure out their end of what was supposed to have been a three way trade and when that did not happen. The dodgers stepped in and said you know what we are going to make this deal happen and it's exactly what they did and that bets blockbuster. It's reworked but done Boston agreeing to send two thousand eighteen. Al Mvp Mookie. Betts pitcher David price to the dodgers for outfielder. Alex do go. And prospects jeeter downs encounter Wong. Boston also said we've talked a little bit about the deal but I wanNA talk about Mukhi specifically what makes him so. Unique is player issues graded everything he hits. For average he hits for power. He's an excellent base runner. He's arguably the best right fielder defensively in the game. He's a good clubhouse presence. Nice guy what can you bring to this team this franchise the help and finally bring a championship to La? I'm GonNa do everything I can bring. My energy reminds Simon Work. Work hard Trying to rub off that way. I know there's a lot of guys that work hard and do everything they can't hear and so I'm just GonNa be here at onto that. Should make our case for twenty twenty world series for sure. You look at Mookie Betts and you try to find fault with him and you just can't I mean the worst thing you can say about. Mookie Betts is. He hasn't been a superstar in the postseason. He's going to get a chance to play in the postseason again this year health permitting. And if he's out there in October on the biggest stage with free agency about to hit I feel like that is his time to absolutely shine and show everybody why he believes that he's going to be baseball second. Four hundred million dollar player next to my trap. And what's interesting is that you said earlier. The dodgers fans were restless even though they would have gone into the season likely as the best team without Mookie Betts. So why was it actually necessary to acquire mookie? It wasn't necessary optimal. Sometimes when you understand just how good your talent is and what the landscape is across the rest of baseball. You realize that it's worth going for it that sitting around and trying to get as much surplus value as you can might not win you a championship now. Trading for Mookie. Betts might not win you championship either but you certainly have a better chance at doing so when you have him in the middle of a lineup. That already is pretty devastating. I promised we wouldn't talk entirely about the Astros but there is an element of this conversation. That is Astros based or at least saw signs dealing based when you look at the way the seventeen and eighteen world series went down. How much does that play into the way that they approached the off season this year? Yeah I don't think it's an element I think it's a large part of it. Honestly I mean let. Let's look at what the dodgers have done. They've won seven straight National League West Championships and they bowed out in the S. The first time around in two thousand thirteen and they did it in the lcs again in two thousand sixteen when you get to two thousand seventeen and you're playing in the world series and you have a team that's one hundred four games and you feel like they are every bit as good as the Astros and then they go and lose in game seven at the Houston. Astros have claimed that city's first ever World Series Championship. That is a gut punch. And when you come back the next year and you run into a team in the Boston Red Sox that has just buzzsaw through the playoffs. You know that hurts to the Boston. Red Sox baseball all season. They have water at a celebration begins and now to look back and know that the two thousand seventeen astros had spent the season and according to Rob. Manfred the playoffs as well cheating. We have a developing story in major league. Baseball has launched an investigation into allegations. That the Astros Centerfield camera to help steal signs during their two thousand seventeen championship brunt and to look at the accusations and allegations against the two thousand. Eighteen Boston Red Sox and to believe that at some point in the near future maybe at the end of this week we're going to have a better accounting of what they potentially did. Mlb says it will investigate allegations that the red sox used their video replay system to steal sides during the world series winning season in two thousand eighteen. That hurts and that sort of thing that sticks in your psyche as much as you want to wipe it out of your mind and say there's nothing we can do. There's no sense in looking back. How can you not you just said it? Sometimes it's best to move forward. Is there still value for the dodgers continuing to air their grievances continuing to shed with it? I mean as a reporter who loves players speaking their minds. Of course there's a wonderful intentive cody bellinger and Justin Turner in particular or quite outspoken. On the topic. I mean these guys are cheating for three years altuve as stolen. Mvp from judge in seventeen. Everyone knows they stole the ring from us. It's hard to feel like they earned it and they earned the right to be called champions. I I know personally. I lost respect for those guys. Everyone in the show in the big leagues lost respect for those guys. I think it's pretty obvious. That whatever the commissioner thought he did he didn't do it very well. They said all of the things that so many players around baseball felt but they said them from the perspective of someone who is actually deeply harmed by this to have the ability to win that championship. For what would have been the first time in almost three decades at that point taken away from you really still angers the dodgers and brought them out. Maybe a strong anyone around the game. I think they've said their piece at this point and I think they need to lead their game. Speak the rest.
"dodgers" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"We'll continue that discussion. A plus there's someone who thinks the Lakers don't have enough and Major League baseball has lost. Its Dam mine. We'll tell you about all those things in just a moment. Take More your calls sedan with a year on seven ten. ESPN spion we've awoken Labor nation on the phone lines and on the tweets at Sodano. We'll get to your calls in his Second Tim Coaching GonNa stop by in less than fifteen minutes. We'll talk to him about this Crazy Major League Baseball playoff proposal and the dodgers and mookie Betts and all that stuff so let me give people real quick before we get to the calls. What Major League Baseball is trying to do? It's just ridiculous like there's really no other way to describe this so this was reported I By The New York Post and then confirmed by ESPN. The League is weighing a move that would increase the total of playoff teams in each league to seven three division winners four wildcards. Currently they have what five wildcards that will no five told a final team correct that this would potentially start in twenty twenty two the post reports that the best team in the League would receive a bye into the division series so if the dodgers have the best record in the nationally they get a by. They don't have to play the wild card around okay fair enough while the two remaining division winners the two seat in the three seat and the wildcard team with the best record of the four would each host Host all games of a best of three opening-round series. I already hate that. I actually think casual fans like the one game scenario. I know baseball people hated hated and teams. Hate it because like you play one sixty to play one that stinks but hey this is about growing the sport okay. So I don't like the best of three. I don't mind that if they're GONNA do best of three that they all our home games because there's less travel but I don't love the idea that here's the rest also. This is the kicker also the top seeds in in the opening round so this would be the two seed because the dodgers in this case in this example would have a by right. The top seeds in the opening round will reportedly get to choose their opponent among along the lower wildcard teams. So let's say the dodgers are the one seed they have a bye to the vision round. Let's just say the nationals are the two seat they get to pick the team they WANNA a play. That just seems like something. A fifth grader came up with sorry. How about you just play? Who the were the seventh seed is or whatever whatever right like this isn't all that complicated anyway so we'll talk to Kirch in about that stuff in a second? WHO's I've been on? Hold the longest here. We've got van Fontana what's been going anyway so two points quickly about coups one As for the a Ah Hollywood lifestyle in Romney. Yeah some people can do that in compartmentalizing multitask but you know you have to have the maturity inexperienced cycling on the point of Frank Vogel right in place for I think the example Charles Barkley point out about Collini pop. When did he know collide become a good player? You said you know once he learned that when we call place Liam didn't let Sibley mean team needs to score shoot. Just make the right play and I'm not sure the cowboys make that point where he realized when they call A.. Place for them not necessarily meant for you to shoot at school but make the right play at the end of the day a basket of the basket regardless to whether it's it was listed that early on I think that was clearly a problem but I mean if you hear what he said I mean he says that he under I mean I mean whether he implemented is one thing to your your point. Thank you for the call van but he seems to at least outwardly expressed that he understands that. Yeah you know Not just trying to impact the game Different elements You know obviously it's a tough to come by you know certain touches in no shots but No for me is all about making the right play no courses. Oh says he doesn't really care about how many points every night just wants to be efficient and You know major I play so they like. He's he's saying Whoa exactly what you said van now again he needs to implement that. And it's not always as easy as you think because it's Chris McGee followed up in that interview on spectrum. I'm sports he said Yo it it's not. It's it's a challenge. Sometimes when you don't know how many shots you're getting and again you guys got to put yourself elf-backed into this mode of how young people feel. Young people are out to try to prove themselves for multiple reasons ego vanity the finances though he makes less than two million dollars a year yes. I know the championships come that. He'll probably get paid eight but he also needs to put a certain threshold of numbers in his mind right but he is willing at least outwardly to express that doesn't matter to him at the moment that he understands ends that now will the championship come. We'll have to see they've got one team. I think in their way and it happens to be the team. You know down the hall Steven was saying he doesn't believe in this roster. I was so disappointed. They let Marcus Morris. Land with the clippers. Let me tell you something right now all year long the clippers have privately said this. And you know I've told you this off the Air Max on numerous occasions. The clippers of says Steven Stephen A.. We got five dogs. I don't know if they got one. That's what they said about the lake. We're talking dawgs Marut route whatever. They got a prime ad. Now look maybe they've got enough guys to throw it. Those guys particularly Lebron like the they may have that they stop and Lebron but they can make it more difficult than most teams have particularly in the past. Tim Team is in Canada. Are you in Canada today. I'm good Sir we're in Canada. Edmonton Alberta Excellent Koto. So here I bet get yourself some Tim. Horton's coffee man So I got two points one on the Calculus Ma Tau Kouzmines. What twenty four twenty? Three twenty five. I believe forty five. It's he's in his third year this whole notion of. It's his third year. How many always Jason Tatum? Twenty four by the way twenty four when Jason. TATUM is younger but Jason. TATUM has also been given the reigns as a rookie. And that wasn't the case with Kyle Kuzma and you know. No one's told Jason Tatum. You have to fit a role they build around Jason Tatum Jalen Brown but the media did that. I don't think anyone on the Lakers. Call coups McHugh are now start auction the media at the George so but what I mean by the way. He's talking though Tim like he's is just saying like the coach. Says you know it's not about scoring all the time like that. That is literally discussing a role not not a third option in situation yet. But we're seeing this now. I towards the after the trade deadline Lebron I. I can probably Lebron's not that happy that collar still around. There's tons of options. Perhaps for personally I think they should still get this three options. I think one Jeff Green to if What's the Clippers Digest? Dock bar traded marcus. If he can get bought out I think they should go after Moore harvest and last but not least. I don't mind the dion waiters..

"The kids I'm had that I'm talking dos and I'll talk to you guys next week thank you Okay hang on the phone when you say about her you are locked in to the dodgers I welcome to the there's podcast I'm your host Neal Women Today is Adam Your Adam was up it's going on war Ho that's a little Gangsta intro of you there man also joining us our Guy Josh Josh you guys will experience Joe here other ones the energy the of a ten year old who's like meeting friends at the park waving little handedly wave like it all the time I bet you do does the door can you imagine like Josh walking out during the morning go to work hey neighbor by I can see it I really try and show that's I've pitcher him the Number of twenty one pilots who ironically also named Josh is kind of known for always waving like a child it's really adorable but that's exactly what I pictured he's about yeah it's our Josh Mas- act so Adam like here people wave a lot by my mom lives up in Chicago go up there and like so I'll be running or just out doing whatever and if you make eye contact with somebody here you ways and in Chicago if you wave bowl they look like you look at you like you are a psycho why are you making eye contact with people like you look at people move around it's totally different in the city obviously group in the suburbs so I kinda grew up with that same mentality my dad's the type bill talk to anybody so I always was embarrassed that is the kid but then as I grew older kind of like saw why that's really a beneficial quality to having a person but it yeah it's weird living in a city because it's it's people overload that's what it is you're just seeing too many people all the time so if you did that you'd literally just look cycle at walking on the street the neighbor neighbor hi neighbor are you my friend and yeah people would think that you you have a problem so the alternative is just do the exact opposite of that which is no eye contact on focusing me my life what I'm doing nothing else matters what's hilarious when you like find a middle ground I have a friend who just introduced to me a really fun game to plan public transit which is trying the person who's dressed the weirdest and guess what if you actually do that on public transit it becomes really interesting the shit that you probably don't pay attention to there's a people dress weird as speaking of not talking to strangers I love to pull the whole like on the phone thing like I'm walking into story I don't want to talk eighty or one late not make contact with them like Oh yeah hey so you want me to have the time is here again I just have a cell phone out I'm talking to somebody and like really talking to anybody now we get it you don't give money to homeless homeless people you've got the girl scouts out there the boy scouts all of them all throw all of them a minute of my time to say no acknowledged and I'd rather fake a call the worst thing is when you're on the line checking out a night they're like oh it's like the donates don't want to donate today I don't want to donate like why do you have to make me feel like a piece of shit every time that you're like oh wait mom Tom what's going on is everything okay I've gotta run I'm sorry I can't donate right now I would but there's an emergency obviously you gotta get creative with stuff you can't just go straight not you know all you have to do is that really the true antisocial city technique you'll see it all the time it works flawlessly women are brilliant at it because they they need it a ted phones yeah you'd put on headphones nobody attempts to interact with you You actually one thing that I do and I actually menace to tons of people especially if you ever feel unsafe in a situation put in headphones and just turn them on it it's brilliant to just be able to listen to your environment and not have anyone feel like they can interact with you directly right kind of blue thing I know a lot of women in the city who do it a lot of friends who are females sue literally are the ones who I told that to me and then I've used it just because like for instance if you're just on public transit Lee at night and you don't want the person who's Kinda crazier Kuku next to you trying to gauge you WANNA conversation you don't have to actually be listening to anything but just having headphones owns and will cut down on the chances of that and also if you ignore that person who you don't want to engage with it doesn't seem brew it just seems like Oh you can't hear the name is our attention you to get your name let's give him the contact hold on hold on hold on while the shower now you were headphones I love how air pause now made me look crazy of where I'm at I I I like to key one of my ear sometimes I talk to people or listen to something another one's free and I whenever like I'm shopping or next to somebody there are you talking to me are you talking to yourself I might not talking to this person in my ear I hit my my Pottier at all I didn't even see you only see my ear that's free said thing I'm like crazy you're talking to myself so that'll keep people away from your also technique the bus without air pods who were next to you and having this really awkward moment where we're like that happened so much talking so much another reason that I always have headphones so I could just ignore whether or not you just cut that out entirely yeah sorry so before we jump into the content let me start this off they were not going to spoil the joker movie like every other podcast wants to do this week I haven't seen it beer that is weird I had that happen onto podcast yes like that's like the move this week she almost like it was game of thrones or something yeah so obviously some people say it sucked so he will say it's amazing I haven't seen it yet I don't know if you guys have but I haven't seen any that I really want to but yet you're right it's been very polarizing I've only heard those two thanks people like it's brilliant and then other people were like it's boring and stupid uh we'll see we'll see what Josh thanks we'll see what Oklahoma thinks when he gets around to it maybe it'll be his show until one week other than that this is going to be a good old episode man. The Democratic debate is happening while we're doing this because we don't care about our country so we're ignoring that if not to have it democratic debate this guy but if you haven't voted I mean if you haven't registered to vote you should definitely do that you think there's any listeners of this podcast who are not registered to vote what do we do eat Rollo's yeah none probably Fallon's ellison I dunno maybe we'll see but anyway last mentioned because it's not in our note it's or anything and I don't know I think it pretty much happened recently is Mariota's been benched ten hill is going to be the starter this week that's not really it's not really in our conversation Shen at all but I just felt like it was worth mentioning before we jump into it before we'd love to talk to you Mariota believers about this yeah it's interesting it's interesting right I know Trade Mariota Rachana Josh player profiler yet Josh I want you to speak both on behalf of yourself and player profile cop who I think arrange does like the number two dynasty quarterback last you know Mac Elliot's off his rocker sometime nobody should talk about this more than Josh because John also trading me like the first pick our draft next year for Mariota so no one should be talking about this does you make it sound so bad now this is what it is tell us about Josh what's going on understand I don't understand what they think they're gonNA get Outta Tannehill it's like it's like bringing in oh flocco after having case keenum not do well for here I would just ride Mary Odell and and see if it gets any better and replaced the drafted player the writing is finished with that I do not agree I'm honest really I am flabbergasted that it happened this early in the year as you guys remember in in our one auction dynasty league I completely putted on quarterback it was one of the quarterbacks it took I did that thinking Tanto might start the last two games of the season I never imagined that it would be the situation which Ashley makes me super excited for Tannehill because it makes me feel like they're they're more confident tannahill that I would originally let on this is a really early point in the ear to be turning over this is almost like the transition that you would see if tannahill was like an incoming rookie quarterback drafted in the first round not you know a quarterback to play for another NFL team for years So yeah it's really interesting I mean I'm I'm intrigued to see if Tanna token knew anything better in the office dense but but yeah I think Mariota's his career is going to be in Russia after this building somebody in the building DOC was ready to move on from Mariota Yeah I think that's really all it was I didn't think it was going to happen to like Magara got hurt or something I didn't think it was going to happen just like this quick millicent that I really didn't I even the whole you know change the ten hill at the end of the year I really didn't see the reason the reason for it you know like I mean at that point you might as well just finished it out Mariota and move on like I thought it had to be an injury that would that would pull this to happen and so I mean I honestly think the only thing that makes sense I'm sorry to interrupt but really the only thing that makes sense is they honestly think Tannehill is going to win them more games because right now they're in a position through two and three in that division the Texans and the culture three into the JAGS also two and three like it's it's neck and neck at this point it's not like they're you know some team that's completely out of contention just throwing in the towel.

"Here's a Mount Rushmore and he is one of the greatest hockey players certainly of his time or you know it was the Mount Rushmore. Just athletes coaches out of the equation. Are you gonna Ami Bond Walter Johnson because I yes Jesus. How could you not Sammy Baugh. There's no Washington redskins without Sammy Baugh he wants to NFL Championships in every list of great great nfl players he's in the top ten every list and Walter Johnson only the greatest right hander and the history of Major League Baseball pitchers. I know you gotta leave them off because they didn't happen. You were born you know since you were born before seeing they don't count well. That's your thing before. She doesn't in count okay fine then. Let's so if it's if it's Sammy Ball Walter Johnson Alex veteran then we can just right now. It's a very quick debate who would be the fourth and final one on that Mountain Mount Rushmore. That's that's a tough one at a time gotta be. It's it's got to be a player from one of the pro teams. Yeah I get that. I understand that it's got to be one of the major teams. Take Gimme Johan. Oh Hand Kroth now. I mean look people would say Rigaud. I think I think people might say Rigaud. The people might say Darryl Green. I think people might say Darryl Green there. There's another one that I immediately popped into my head and that is Elvin Hayes I. I don't think anyone's going to buy any. I don't care whether anybody else buys into it. I'm telling you what I think. Elvin Hayes your. NBA He's the greatest NBA player in the history of the city Eddie. I get that but you're mount. Rushmore is a pebble. If you put Elvin Hayes Oh okay so but the just you would put him ahead of John. Wall Gilbert arenas and WES unseld. Wouldn't you know I wouldn't put my son upsell. MVP and rookie involved here in Baltimore. Okay Okay in Baltimore. Yeah I. I wouldn't put him ahead of West. Okay so and when you do your Baltimore Mount Rushmore you can put wes unseld on there with cal ripken in Johnny United States and I'm sure I can come up with the fourth year if you give me some time. Eddie emerged but I yeah Rigaud and probably Darryl Green because Darryl Green was probably a better all-time great at his position now they're both they're both equal green and rigour probably equal and I mentioned this you previously I'm always fascinated. Why can Houston doesn't get he's do as one of the all-time great redskins he is consistently. Lee when you see the list of the greatest safeties the NFL his he's in the top five an and there's no other player in Redskins history other than Sammy Baugh that that you can say that about no you're right absolutely and I think he played twelve years in the NFL seven of which were the redskins his yeah yeah he doesn't he hasn't got his do absolutely yeah but not on Mount Rushmore right here on my route Mount Rushmore radio for no not no not on my Mount Rushmore of Communist. You are and sports talk hosts yes. You are all right real quickly before we run today. I do have a smell test. Pick a Tommy. I think I've told you this. Maybe it didn't the other day. The smell test is on a bit of a a bit of a heater thirty a and one over the last three weeks. It's all time I was twelve and three last week nine yeah no two weeks ago nine five and one in between so that's thirty eight and one over the last thirty six fifteen in one for the season season so I am. I'm helping people pay some bills in a lot more I like Seattle tonight laying the point and a half at home against the rams. I I don't like an errand. I don't know if you feel the same way. I don't like these Thursday night games. I think they're very unpredictable. When it comes to betting them but there's a lot of public action on the rams and and they're super sharp action from what I was told late last night on the seahawks and SORTA goes hand in hand with what I've been thinking I pick Seattle to win the division and I thought the rams might have a step back year. maybe a playoff year but not as good as last year and I think we've seen some chinks the rams armor you know last week definitely. Tampa Bay by the way Tommy just as quickest. Oh my God we didn't do the NFL power rankings today we haven't done. NFL power rankings cue up the outgoing. Yes we are going to know. I'm not doing it why I'm not doing it because I don't feel like doing it they. Do you know how hard it is to do this week. I'm not doing it. Get prepared right now. You're going to do IT I. I'm not doing it. You're doing it. I'm making you do it. I'm not I'm not doing yes you are. You're going to do it all right fine. You don't have to do it. I I was just going to tell you that I think after new England Kansas City. It actually gets very hard this week. It's not as obvious it's as it's been because the rams got beat fifty five to forty last week by Tampa Bay and what I was going to say before. We basically excused ourselves from doing. NFL power rankings today is that the buccaneers right now or a vegas favorite. I mean the the Vegas oddsmakers loved themselves. Some Tampa Bay buccaneers they they're they're. They're the numbers on futures their line this week. At New Orleans is three. It's super short. You saw it open at five and a half six and it's down to three and a half three yeah. I think that's a couple of weeks ago number. No I'm pretty sure that was Sunday's. There's no way we had a nine point move from Sunday not nine three point move. I five and a half say oh that's right you. Orleans for six hundred three okay mic my fault. Yes so yeah. That's very possible. I've seen Erin on some of these sites. They've had some lines from a couple of weeks ago that they've indicated was the opening line. I only WanNa look at the Sunday. You know the the late late Sunday night opening line to see the movement is not from a few weeks ago but anyway vegas loves Tampa they in the buccaneers they they got some talent. They've got a coach offensively. They've got a defensive coach in bowls. they go to New Orleans. You're you're next Washington redskins head coach. I predict predicted that to Thanks for listening to the show. Did you see I. I think I had that before you. I don't think he did this. This is your got it for me but that's okay. You can't remember anything. You've got to write your off my Mount Rushmore. I'm good. I don't WanNa be on yours figured out. An offer book. Put up a list for redskins coach week one of next year. The favourite isn't debate coach but it's not Todd Bowles. I know I know it's Byron left-wing. Oh well interesting yeah yeah like we're not a lot of less out there that have falls on it. Yeah I well the reason I said it and you grabbed onto it and ran with it is because Joe because Joe Gibbs likes todd odd bowls a lot and I think we both believe the Dan's got one place to turn when he gets rid of everybody hopefully in that's coach. Joey just doesn't have many people people that he can rely on or go to do realize this is not. This is not true. I do realize what I didn't talking about. Todd Bowles Goals as the next head coach for a while now. I've been talking about Todd Bowles as the next head coach when he was coaching the jets I was talking about todd bowls as the defensive coordinator a great defensive coordinator and a guy of loved for I don't know four years now and you definitely you grabbed onto that that trend which is fine. You do a lot of times. It's Okay Todd Bowles at the next head coach when he was still playing for the redskins. I was talking about todd. Bowles is the next redskins head coach when they drafted Todd Bowles back in one thousand nine hundred eighty six or whatever your was all right. I'm done with you. anyway. Seattle is a smell test minus one and a half tonight I'm pretty sure the smell test is gonNA crash and burn this week Aaron. You know why I 'cause I love the board and that is probably a kiss of death the kiss of death for the weekend but stay tuned tomorrow tune in tomorrow because I'll have my complete smell test for the weekend. Seattle tonight minus one and a half by the way I'd lean South Alabama as well against Georgia Georgia southern but that's not an official smell smell test. Pick Tommy. Thank you appreciate it enjoy tonight. Enjoy tomorrow night. and I will talk. Maybe I'll I'll read your column that you just wrote and everybody re Tommy's columns.

"dodgers" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"The guy's is not putting in the work. The guy's not getting any better the guy's a major long term project if we put him on the field. We can't operate a professional national offense. We can't evaluate other people offensively not to mention the fact. He's GonNa get himself. Hurt you know and I don't think that they would tell me that I I haven't heard that. I don't think they would say it to you. I don't think they would say to us now. It doesn't mean that they don't think he's a project but but there's gotta be something that Jay Gruden can put out there Ford Twain Haskins to get him live bullet real game experience over these last three quarter last three quarters of the season there so many things that can be done with these young quarterbacks you cut the playbook in half ghetto if reading reading defenses and getting them in the right protection schemes are so important they can go with nothing but hot routes you know they can they can they move away from max-protect and having throw hot on every throw so he's not literally reading out. Is it cover one. Is it cover to cover three there lots of things is that Jay gruden could do you know to make him more comfortable and to get him playing time the rest of the way. That's my big problem with this again again. If somebody called me up after hearing me say this on radio at your hearing me say this on the podcast from the organization and say CAF off the record look he he he can't he can't do it. I mean plus. He's not putting in the work. He's not he's not. He's not here early leaving late. He's he's not putting in all the work. He's not getting it. He can't function you know. He's a great kid but he can't function right now. He's he's. He's a year overweigh minimum unless I heard that I want him to play okay. I'll try to look. Here's here's here's here's the problem that that that that on countering you know. I get my thoughts in between the time you start talking and the time that you're dod so you better start writing them down. That's what I do when you're talking. I'm I'M GONNA have to start writing them. That's what I do when you're talking. I write them down. Look Erin. Look at all my notes notes as I'm writing down when Tom he's talking 'cause. I don't forget you. GotTa have a pattern paper a pen and paper in front of you. Trust me drone on and onto who occasionally yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah okay here. Elba quarterbacks that you brought up before I think this is a difference. There weren't three choices. Is there to be made. There's three choices for Jay. Gruden with the Redskins know if there was no case keenum or if there was no Cole McCoy this this would be a lot easier but but any most of the quarterbacks that you brought up like the quarterbacks are usually thrown into play. The coaches don't don't usually have three choices. There's two choices so I think that complicates everything now. The other thing is if Jay Gruden Star Art Him against the Patriots is his agenda to damage the kid or if say Gruden doesn't start him against Haskins askins against the Patriots is his agenda to hold him back. You'll hear people make both cases. You'll hear people say well if he starts them against the Patriots. He's putting them out there to get killed. He's put like like Louis. Riddick said he's putting them out there to fail. You know so I mean the thing I I don't know. I'm Jay can't win if he starts them. He's got an agenda if he doesn't start 'em he has an agenda and this is. Dr And that's and that act nothing the older kid may have nothing to do but driving that narrative but people around him do and that's what's pissing. Jay grew off aw that makes a lot of sense to me the whole you know. He's he's pissed off because you know that in that last comment you know aw there. He's going to be wrong either. Way Is is sensitive to the criticism which by the way what you're saying he probably thinks are coming from people people that are close to the kid and and probably people in in its own building yeah and maybe even people in his own building and for him. He's like look doc. I've I've been a coach forever. I've coached quarterbacks forever. I know what I'm doing. I know how to handle these situations and he's probably very frustrated and by the the way I think your point and I wrote this went down as you were going on and on I wrote down the three choices thing is. I actually think that's a really good good point. I would just say to you what I said to you. In the summer. I get rid of the third choice so it's not a temptation like this. I this was a mistake to have a third choice. Yes I mean. There's no debate. There's no argument you know. It's either one guy or the other and I mean the three. Troy is particularly one of those choices Cole McCoy. You know that piece of candy and I'd say Gouden can ignore complicates everything all right well. You're not going to be here or be back on the show until Tuesday the answer this question. Do you think Colt McCoy will be the starter Sunday. Oh yes absolutely I absolutely do and and I can't believe I'm not going to be there for it. I I've been there for it. It'll be funny because if he survives the game which by the way we'll get odds on tomorrow as to whether or not he'll actually take every snap and the game. He'll be looking for you in the press conference afterwards. Where's My dad. Where's the Tommy you know. I forget if we did this together on Tuesday. But can you imagine if he starts. Colt McCoy and McCoy puts up a two two hundred ninety yard three touchdown no pick day to score thirty one in their game late with a chance to beat the Patriots. Oh Oh yeah we talked about this and we talked about how how unbelievable I mean the most unbelievable part I would miss that I mean I you know I mean but but we both know that that's that's you know like you know not all fairytales and happy endings and this one's not gonna end the happy ending recall what unfortunate what if Sunday the nats win the Redskins win and the mystics out what is the Washington Times and Washington Post handle their front page while the Redskins are clearly inside on page two. Oh that's that's the obvious thing if they beat. I'm kidding. I'm kidding what what's one of them would be on the front page of the paper. Not just the front pages not the sports section I if the Redskins beat the Patriots there on page one what if the nats eliminate the dodgers Sunday Sunday night and they win the series then they're on pace one and then what is what does the sports section look like well well then I. I don't know that's the post for sex. I don't care about this. Why would I care about their sports. I don't know I don't know what else do you have the caps one last night. I watched. I actually watched a lot of the game. You know what I mean. I love Jobe locker. They're awesome. It's such a great impairing and it has been for so long. Just like buck and Phil were and I and I enjoy watching them and you know I don't watch a lot of regular season hockey but last night I I was watching because the Saint Louis had the banner hanging thing from their Stanley Cup. It was a year later from when the caps did it you know last year for their season opener and and I watched a lot of the game I mean the American League game jumped out real quickly with Diaz hitting that home run in the first and then hitting home run in the third and that game was over ver- early almost like Milwaukee was overly except Tampa never made a run back but I watched it and I first of all. I'm saying this to Erin and I know you don't care about the stuff tommy the NBC family of networks to such good job with hockey. It's just perfect and doc. Emrick is just so awesome to listen to call the game but anyway they they they got they got an overtime winner from Verona to win the game. That's all I have on that game ovechkin and I in watching the game it. It seemed to me that the caps dominated the blues but they went to overtime in one the game anyway a lot of people picking the caps ups Tommy to be deep into the postseason. If not a Stanley Cup winner well okay. That's it yeah I mean I mean come on. I mean what am I supposed to decide. Oh you don't play you would have put you in a breakdown their third line no out in the first round last year what everyone thought they were good to dominate. I mean we're we're we're so don't talk to me about by the way you'll love it. You'll love this and I'm GonNa find it real quickly. I got one of those tweets from one of those people that didn't like that. I said I'm not a big caps fan which I I don't know if I said it with you and Tuesday or yesterday on the podcast you send you send it with me on Tuesday. I've said it a million times. I'm that's of the four teams that's the one that I don't have a lot of passion for not a big hockey guy and I've just never been a huge caps fan like I don't sit there and live and die on everything so anyway I i. I'm looking for it and I can't find it but basically I got one of those tweets. It said I heard what you said about the caps if you're going to care so little and you're not going to root caps. I'M NOT GONNA listen to your show anymore in one of those and Gosh. I hope you reach out to that person. Yeah smooth that over. I I did I I I. I basically said I'm not going to you know it's it's it look. You don't have a rooting interest in any of the local teams there are there are other talk show host. I know one on your station. That is a forty niners fan not a Redskins Fan in. We've had that at our station before that that's not white the people I mean I think it is a benefit personally in local sports talk radio to be a fan of the teams and to really have an understanding ending of a of the teams you know and I am. I do have an understanding the root for every other team very passionately but for whatever reason I've just never been a big hockey fan. I love a playoff hockey but basically I just said look. I'M NOT GONNA fake emotional investment in a team that I don't have it for you. Know the they're good team. I love playoff off hockey. I just don't have the same feeling when they lose or win that I do for other teams and whatever he he got upset. He said Rub them the wrong way. I'm sorry about that but I that's the way I feel. I did watch the game last night. However I am amazed by Ovechkin who at thirty four years old and count it out pretty much before the Stanley Cup finals in the Stanley Cup winning season has probably played at some of his best hockey the last two seasons and it looks like you know based on last night. He may be in line for another great year. He's Altana title rate. DC Athlete Right. He's he's very pleased to being Mount Rushmore as an all-time DC athlete. Oh I think he is on Mount Rushmore. I mean he's it's not the greatest athlete in the history of the town but he's he's among he is..

"That's Kevin in DC after you go to mybookie. Dot Ag you play you win. You get paid. We'll get to the redskins shortly and what Jay Gruden Gordon said yesterday because it certainly would appear that we are headed towards a colavero start on Sunday against the Patriots but I wanted to ask you about not something because I talked about it on the radio show this morning and I didn't see all of this stuff until late yesterday about Tony Kornheiser comments about the front page of the Sports Section in the post yesterday so let me catch everybody up to speed the post yesterday the print edition front page page of its sports section if you didn't see it they put the mystics game two loss to Connecticut at the very top of the sports sections top page front page with the headline Della John Hurt as son draws even now for those of you. That don't know what that means. That's about the mystics best player. Elaine de la Don. She was the league. MVP The sun is the Connecticut Sun. That's the team. The mystics are right now playing in the WNBA finals. I'm being in specific about that because I think there are a lot of people that actually don't know what's going on in the WNBA finals but the mystics are really good team. The series is dead even at one game apiece and they played game two on Tuesday night same night that the nats were playing the brewers in the wildcard game and on Wednesday morning the Post Post put the Mystic Connecticut game at the top or above the full. That's what they call it right. Tommy above the and for the rest of the front page the sports section and probably two thirds the remaining two thirds of that front page was the nets game where they had the headline won- John for the money is in one for one Soto in his big hit cer- Tony had a problem with the choice that I guess the Editors Make Tommy's at the editor's that make these decisions yes. They do okay so on his podcast yesterday. He said it's insane that the Washington Post stripped stripped that mystics game across the top the nets got the bigger play and he's saying that they got more of that front page but you've gotta be kidding me and I said I yeah I mean. You've got to be kidding me. You know he just didn't think that the mystics deserve that by the way he drew a ton of criticism for those comments including including a comment from a reporter at the Post. Her name is able Wallace. I don't know what she writes but she responded on twitter saying Imagine Agean watching the nets win this is in response to Tony's response imagine watching the nets win and feeling those beautiful feelings in seeing that giant happy picture on the front page age and then thinking you know it soured this the presence of women how utterly pathetic is what Able Wallace. She's a reporter for the Post. I think what she tweeted out. I know Tony Pretty well. I can guarantee you that Abe completely missed the point. It had nothing to do with women it had to do with which which one of these two teams deserve the above the fold headline positioning. He would have felt the same way had. DC united been above the fold versus the the nats off of the wild card win being in that spot in my view Tommy. He's a hundred percent right now. I don't understand the inner workings of this and this is going to rely on you to help me here but from the perspective of being a reader being post subscriber. I still get the post delivered now. I don't always read the print edition I read the online edition probably more but I love Sunday mornings with my Washington Post sports section and I get the New York Times delivered on Sundays indies well with coffee and breakfast and a Bagel. I liked that I liked the addition. I still get USA Today's Friday edition because I'd like to spend section in USA. I'd say today like to spread it out even though it's been reduced to like two and a half pages but my perspective is from what my expectations of the post would be and that maybe by the way at complete odds with what makes better business sense what makes better editorial sense. I don't know but I would have thought that in ah I it's not what I would think I know that there is a significantly bigger audience for the nets wildcard game then for the mystics. WNBA championship game. I promise you that there is no chance that the number of people interested in that mystics game isn't a tiny fraction of the number of people interested in the Nats brewers game so I ask you. Was that a mistake. I don't know if it was a mistake. It's it wouldn't have been again. It's a judgment call so I don't think it's a mistake I mean Dan Steinberg tweeted something up and I thought that was pretty accurate. What have I didn't read it. Basically he said you know if they made these judgments solely on who would read stories then they'd run. Dallas cowboys stories and car crashes in the paper and that would be it. I mean if you may if you made decisions based John. You know how many clicks us that the the online sir but how many eyeballs you get to a story you know you. The cowboys crashes. That's one piece of this like if you're just in it to draw eyeballs okay. That's a good answer editorial royal standpoint from an editorial standpoint I mean do you really come to the conclusion that the mystics get top billing over the nets winning a wildcard game. No no no that that's but again it's it's not there. I don't know if there's a right or wrong. It's a judgment call in something like this. Servian look I I am. I I have led the parade against the idea that we have some kind of obligation to cover women's sports because it's the right thing to do. I mean I've I've let that I mean we basically this is. This is a business. It's not a nonprofit you know operation and you know so I I'm all in. I understand what Tony saying and I agree with them to some extent there. There can't be any debate that it's not even close that what the more significant story is to readership or the nationals over domestics six but I don't have as big a problem with the placement as he does. I don't think it's insane I think and and part of what's going on here is I know I know the way the editors think particularly editors at the post and they have an agenda that comes through I've seen with Olympic Coverage I've seen it before with other coverage. you know it's just I mean they. They have a certain feeling that they have some kind of greater duty here in terms and and it makes them look good among their other editors in the business at the New York Times and the La Times which is all they really compete with in terms of that so there's a lot going on here here. I don't think it's insane. I think it was the wrong decision but again. It's a judgment call Aaron. What did you say I was saying. I don't know if that was much as editorial all decision to put it top as it was designed decision with with the way they laid that out and especially with that weird at across the bottom which I find more offensive than anything was the ad there's the bottom injure so was just a big ad across the bottom took up some space but the way they did with the kind of three quarters of a bit on the nats and then just kind of that top thing I it seems like the post is socially the person general when they had the layout they put the one smaller story up top and then the rest the page is the one big story so I feel like. It's almost a design decision. More than an editorial decision may be right. Maybe right away ads ads on on the front pages of of sections. That's only something that's happened in in in the last ten or twelve years or so maybe longer but I mean for years ears you would never put an ad on the front page of the sports section but now I mean I'm surprised they know put them on the front page period. I think he would have been. I think you you may have been okay with the insane. Description had been like AFIFA qualifier that they put up there had been soccer. You probably would have been more of upset. I don't know I mean here's the here's the bottom line in this day and age. I don't really care 'cause I don't use the print. Edition is the primary way I don't use the post. Sports Section is away to really get news anymore. I mean it's it's too outdated and even online with all due respect because I like a lot of columnists. I Love Barry. I love Dave Shannon. I Love Sally you know and I like. I like a many of their columnists but I don't post doesn't break stories. They're beat reporters really don't break a lot of stories when it comes to the teams that I care about you. Get more of that from you know some of the bloggers and some of the people on Sports Talk Radio or some of the people you know that are you know beat reporters sports talk radio stations or in town than you do from the post but I do like the columns but I didn't see it before the radio show and before the podcast yesterday but afterwards I I looked at it and if I'd seen that first thing in the morning I would have been surprised at that very surprised I I understand the reaction completely. I mean it's the the mystics Tommy the game nationally on television. Ah Vision did a zero point three six rating nationally. That's barely even a number that registers. I've no idea what it did locally. I don't think they'll release that number on the nets game by the way because you know I love. This stuff did an eight point eight local rating on tbs the other night which actually okay isn't that it's it's lower than I would have thought it would have been yeah same with me now. It's TB Isis at it's TBS. It's not network work. You know there is a cable versus network. I don't know the I'm not a ratings experts so I don't know if that's a huge difference anymore. I know it some difference. Prince because there are people in homes without cable television so they couldn't see the game on TBS. They would have been able to see the game. Had it been on Fox as is an example Actually there's a lot more people now without cable television than there have been and maybe in the past ten years with some yeah the the quarterback yeah. They're they're right. They're getting it from all these other places but anyway on the nets as an exam as a comparison for game five against the Cardinals Twenty twelve did a sixteen point seven did a ten point three in game five against the dodgers in two thousand sixteen. I couldn't find the cubs number but if my memory serves me correctly directly it was like a fourteen or fifteen in game five against the cubs so I am surprised that it was an eight point eight I would have thought it would have been a little bit higher but yeah but by the way just also as another sort of as an aside. I've talked a lot about how we've done this together about how in the Redskins fan base has been roading how the television ratings are awful and you know when I did this this morning. A couple of people tweeted me and said you know oh well. You know how that the redskins ratings look. When we've ripped the REDSKINS television ratings that's in comparison to what the redskins used to do not in comparison to what other teams in town do because his bad is the redskins are as dysfunctional as they are as much as their fan base is eroded voted they are still by far and away the Kings of sports television in this market that game against the giants on Sunday which was is a super low near all time low rating for the REDSKINS for a regular season game and by the way a bad game that was over early. It still did a twelve twelve point three you know the Nats playoff game didn't eight point eight so it still you know significantly higher than anything else by the way that twelve point three. We didn't talk about this. The other day at twelve point three seven eight years ago would do for a preseason game. It's really exactly the remarkable the third preseason the fourth year in game yeah I mean it is so remarkable hell far they've fallen but for those that then and will it be by extension will say well. Why do you talk so much redskins on the podcast or why do you talk so much redskins on the radio show well because it's still by far far away the thing that appeals to the majority significant majority in this city despite of how bad they are It's not just the redskins skins. It's the NFL. It's the NFL most city. I'd be better off the way this is the way an offer we to Dan's point. We'd be you better off talking about the cowboys on a daily basis. If we were looking for the largest audience potential even in this city then talking about a couple a couple of the other teams which will lead the conversation for now. Yes we've Steinberg and I have had that discussion for years that who what what the paper would have the co pay for it would have the guts start covering the cowboys on a regular basis. Well you know I I swear to you. I have wait remember. We did a couple of times we we jokingly did like Ravens at one or cowboys at one hundred years. I do think I mean the cowboys ratings wise television ratings wise have now you know in the Ravens to have out drawn the redskins late and regular seasons a couple of times the last a few years you know people and talking head to head like one o'clock one o'clock for twenty four twenty five so I have thought about with respect to the radio station which which.
"dodgers" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"And look I'm not smart enough to to describe as a hitter exactly what he's doing different. But time and time and time again I've seen him get to that ball which confounded him in the last two postseasons that down and in slider when I've seen him attack off speed pitches down in in this year. He's doing damage. He's doing damage with everything. And I think there's something to be said, it should not be even come up in the first place that when you go to the park every day going not only am I gonna play today. But I'm hitting the middle of the order today. And I'm the man today. That's what's happened to Cody belt. That's where I think the dodgers have made the Justice here where they're taking guys who weren't platoon players that they didn't play every day. And now, they are I think there's a different mentality. When you come to the ballpark saying I'm in there, and I'm every single day. And that's when Cody Bellinger feels like and is doing the poll question for this week because on Sunday night baseball next weekend. We have the cardinals in the cubs from Chicago, Tim, give me the best acquisition of the off season. From these four players, Patrick Corbin, Paul Goldschmidt rice Harper or Manny Machado. Of course, the tide is Sunday baseball being Paul Goldschmidt with the cardinals off the good start, right? Right. They've all been great. I just saw Manny Saturday in Washington. And he was in great spirits with his new team those fries there he played awfully well rice Harper's done some tremendous things Patrick Corp. It's been the best starting pitcher on the national. So the answer is all of the guys that I'm gonna go with Goldschmidt. Because I just think what he's done offensively and defensively has changed..

Anything will seventy is legitimately called at this point. Good down there. You know, he was in the fifties sixties and may have crack the forties little bit. I don't know. But yeah, man some kind of cold front or something. And man, we all had a break out, those jackets and sweaters, and sweat, pants, and all that good stuff. But I know it's kind of like disrespectful to say to people who are actually in cold places now man. It was nice here today. I think we have thirty. One of the things you hear down here, a lot is whenever you say to somebody who's like from another place, which is majority of people when you go. It's cold. I hear to the year for Florida. That's like that's the line. That's the hit him with the year for Florida. It's cold. That's a line. You get hit with. That's a cool guy status when you say that it's cold for Florida because I'm so tough guy, some really quality people there. And then you got the people who are trying to prove everybody wrong. I'm out here in shorts and sandals and flip flops. What do you guys actually co for? Yeah. Yeah. No, I can't dig that, like, no matter where you are once dress, a little, like seventy two degrees, which is like classic air conditioner inside temperature. Once he gets any lower than that. I, I don't know. I'm putting on long sleeves. I don't know if you wanna feel the need to pretend like it's not cold if it's fucking. Embrace it. What is your what do you what do you proven here? Mr. macho man, like whatever it was cold. Adam, that's all I can tell you, man. It was called down here. But I hope everything is nice and comfy in Chicago. And in your area. Whatever whatever suburb, you're in still dealing with sauna apartment still sign apartment. Yeah. Conditioner on low right now. It is twenty degrees out is like a deadline when that goes away like when you're expecting that the fall off a little bit. Yeah. Whenever they cut the heat at the end of winter. It's weird. It's so ridiculous. But I guess better this than it being gold. Depends it depends. It's tropical up. So it's a strange way to describe your apartment troppled living where you live. But anyway, autism autism to nil. Thursday night football, we're actually recording this post Thursday night football ended like five minutes ago. I think when we recording this. Too many people surprise. I would say the Cowboys actually won this game thirteen to ten user prize shocked. I mean. It's like the saints turn back into a pumpkin like they looked awful. Yeah. It's just it was rough. I mean the start of the game was rough. I think breeze started with, like, one, maybe two completions and its first seven eight. It's like it just it started really rough. And it didn't they never. They never got a rhythm go. And I don't know if it was just short week or what, but. Yeah. I mean it was it was a rough game and it's not like the Cowboys looked amazing either. It was just I don't know. It was a tough game to watch. I'll be honest. I didn't really watch all kind of was half watching it because it was just. It was it was. No. It was. No chiefs Rams. Yeah. There was particular stood. How about this one and it's weird because like you say go to this game. Somebody else. Hey, what do you think what is game? I'm like, well I expect to win they they've only lost one game. I don't think the Cowboys are going give them number two. But here this is the thing about football, man, it makes you look at jackass here and there. So, yeah, I mean, it wasn't that fun. It wasn't that great for fancy purposes breeze. Like you said it was never got on things. He only had one hundred twenty seven passing yards. One touchdown one interception. The running backs didn't really do too much. I guess Camara, gave you a little bit action if you should if your. But no touchdowns from those guys, nobody really caught the ball you care about on this, your key Keith Kirkwood fan. He got the only touchdown for the for the saints and on the cowboy side of the ball Dak Prescott did too much better than Brees Elliott Elliott came away. Good. If you're an Elliott owner, you're happy with it is game. I think that's the only guy that's like super happy Cooper little bit. But yeah, Elliot's that people really came away probably really happy with the outcome when you agree. Yeah. I would agree. I mean Cooper and PR leagues fifteen points us real solid. But ultimately, I mean this game was pretty rough in, in less your big fan, and I don't know. I just think it's just so fascinating when we have these teams like the saints that just looked so dominant we after week after week. And then they turn back into a pumpkin and it's like it just happens, so effortlessly, it's it's wild in your fantasy playoffs and you're dependent on the way your league up could be a wild can. The actual playoffs started. And this is what you're you're saints do for you. Man. They, they rolled all season long. And then just like you know what when you need as most whereas gonna fail on you. And that's what they did. So this is going to affect some teams for sure who are used again points from their saints but there's really not too much to speak about in this game. I don't wanna talk about Cooper. I don't like the guy stone allow shade at my raiders recently. So we're not gonna talk about them right now. But other than that anything else you want to talk about this game. And he had anything at a recap is not really an exciting recap for this one. No. I mean, you know, Cooper's look great ever since he got to the Cowboys. Start them. It's about him right now. I mean you weren't going. I mean those talking about that Chris, Qatar. Michael, Gallo, he's really turned the corner resents franchises. It's just there's been a lot of players rookie over the year. And you know you go. Marius thomas. No one's really made is good of a transition as a marker has served its like does that you're cutting out..

"And I think now I mean, the the problems even more Boston is become even more pronounced now because the fastball and the slider almost like the same pitch. Right. I mean, he's kinda let me ask you this. If if we didn't have it on the scoreboard where it comes up ninety eight slider on the scoreboard would could you? Tell different slider changeup. I couldn't I can't I watching box. I can I can I can tell his curve, I know is curve. I know his fastball the rest of it, and it's not crucial. I'm just saying this is general Pinon. Yeah. It's hard. It's hard to tell a lot of times like you'll. I mean to me it's always been kind of reaction of the hitter. Right to to me at all expense. You know, you go to spring training. And you see these guys throw bullpens. I can't tell the difference between I ninety eight honestly like eighty to be all it all looks ridiculous. That's actually stand there and watch it. Yeah. But you know, when when you can't tell us like say like when Strasbourg I came up remember just like the guys couldn't even get the bad. Right. So then you kind of know like, okay, this is really hard because professional hitters can react to it. If Kershaw is back with the dodgers, or whatever it is decided to do his legacy with the dodgers always going to be talking about what he didn't do in the playoff that's unfair. But you know, what I think this time goes by, you know, take a look at a guy like Harris. Now, who's kind of as time has gone by kind of become in some ways more, you know, people that like watched dodger baseball in that era have very warm feelings toward him. I think the opposite. I mean, I think Carol's is should be lot more famous than ease with dodger fans you saw when he came out to cut one of the first pitches. It was a nice cheer. But I Eric. Air was all time Homer leader in team still is maybe I think I think it's amazing. The kind of the secret it's the the secret out loud around. Here is around town is that everybody wants to say cross best pitcher implant live Kershaw, but everybody stung by the postseason. And I think that's I think you're right battle the standards in L A R differ than anywhere else. And you have to perform at the highest low. Well, yeah, I mean, I just talking about comparing Colfax. No, there's no comparison at all sandy one. And he didn't. And the weird thing. I think is that actually nationally Kershaw enjoys I think better reputation than locally. Yes. Right because nationally people look at stats, right? They look at the regular season numbers as a local fan. What you remember? You know, if you're a kid growing up you remember moments. Well, Kershaw hasn't had those moments those great you had a great column we said people remember Kershaw for either. Harms above his head or hands on his knees. Looking down when it's one of the other. But as much as we talk about as postseason failures, remember, he he mowed down the Blanda Braise this year in the I remember because when they started hundred first, and then they started him second. He was upset and he was like take that. But that was Atlanta breeze. And it was also at home. Yeah. In during the day. And you know, they talk about how the first four innings of day game at dodger state. You can't. You can't see the ball to Carol two hundred seventy homers, the A dodgers all time leader has three eighty nine. Yeah. The franchise LA dodger all time home dodger all he didn't throw out. They had a full slate. A full slate of postseason games three postseason rounds. He didn't throw a first pitch. He caught one. Didn't thought. I bitch. Dave roberts. Love him. I love him. And he didn't a tough spot. He had a bet. I'll I'll start. He had a bad. He had a bad World Series. Yeah. I think what is it? They say, you know, man, strengths and his. Weaknesses kind of spring from the same. Well, and I think that if you kind of look back to say that first postseason, right?.

"I think the front office was negligent in how they went about putting together this team that clearly had flaws, and it was just kinda like, well, we're going to count on the other teams in our division to be bad. We're going to count on the fact that the rest of the league is. Bad and we're still going to kind of back into the World Series. And hope we get lucky right because and that's kind of their general theories. Get to the playoffs in the playoffs are crapshoot you right? You talk to anybody in the front office. They will keep telling you that plow crap crapshoot. Right. So just keep getting in every year. And at some point the balls is going to kinda roll your way. And I don't think you know, when when we've seen these last two World Series kind of play out of crap shoot. Yeah. I don't think. Yeah. You see teams win because you know, what the last two years. I think the better team won last year. I think that the dodgers actually we're kind of fortunate to push it to a seventh game that Houston was clearly the best team this time. You know? Yeah. The brakes didn't go the dodgers way. But like, you know, those things come out to watch at some point the better team wand up winning, you know, and I think they're going to have a lot of questions kind of moving forward from here negligent negligent. Devastation. I just think people can sit back and some fans will say well, thank you dodgers, we got to World Series. But I think most fans are like enough's enough. This is if you're get the if you're going to get their win the damn thing if you have the most money anybody in baseball, you had the largest attendance of anybody in baseball. You have a great TV deal, which nobody can watch. But you making a lot of money eight billion dollars on TV deal that cut out most of Los Angeles. If you're making all this money have always ask. Plus, you have two of the smartest guys. And they are the smartest guys all baseball. Andrew Freeman farms eighty running your team, and you can't win a World Series. And you can get a win it once you get there. No. It's it's devastation in Dylan's. Right. It's talked for years about it's a crap shoot. Just get there. Will you see once you get there? You know, all the analytics offer thing that worked on regular season. Does it work in a short series and elite team a better it just doesn't work before the series started? Did you have? Prediction, who you thought was gonna win it. Yeah. I mean, I I think I predicted the dodgers in seven, but you said dodgers at five I said dodgers at four. Okay. Yeah. Just trolling people. Now, you're calling dodger sweep you. Here's still trolling people. Here's my here's my my that Bill. Dillon said dodgers for once game one ended we ask for new predictions. He said Red Sox in for. Not dodgers and five or six four. Why are you wanna trope you why you won't play with their emotions you got? I mean, the seriously entire city, man. Felt like this about sports when I was like eight. Remember, there's an entire city. They're generations that live in die with the dodgers. In about Bill said about the devastation like I was there. I interviewed you guys before the game. And then I was walking around the crowd in. It just fell a game five. Everybody was nervous. I'm mind euchre shot gives up the home run right away. But it just like the crowd was into it where they were really relaxed or they're enjoying themselves..

We'll have a couple of podcast for you. First Dylan, Hernandez and Bill are gonna give us the dodgers perspective from a columnist view where they have outside world where they're thinking of the fans are thinking of the front office or taking what the dodgers could possibly do next season. And then later on this week partout, we're gonna go with the beat writer and McCullough who was with the team since spring training Bill. Shaken the national baseball columnist and hordic steal the new dodger beat writer who came over in the middle season, but was covering the dodgers in the World Series. Interesting to hear the perspective from those. He writers whether every single day. But right now, the state of the dodgers as you'd Dylan Hernandez and Bill Paschke. Dodger fans ain't no not again, not again, not again for the second straight year. Wait to say not again to Dylan implant, you're on the podcast. They don't wanna hear us again. They're not ready for this. For the second straight year dodger fans see the visiting team. Celebrate at SHA. Vez ravine last year Astros game seven this year. The Red Sox sT final score five the one same. Final score a Bill. Because I don't have to work. So I really don't pay like if you watch that Astros game. But all this time. I was convinced they lost seventeen nothing or something. Just because of like how Darvish got blown out of the water. It was only five one. Yeah. It was five to one. Mr darvish. No apology. That's the most. We do not oh, Mr. Darvish at apology. That is the voice of Bill plash key, legendary LA times columnists and recently new columnist Dylan Hernandez for a while that recent how long have you been years couple, quite legendary huge impact. Have you? Join their Bill. How many we'll have you covered. Oh my God up. Just the dodgers. Just general general all my gosh.

A couple of times the giants clinch to go to the world's the world's. Okay. That's right. So Bill Plaski how many dodgers World Series? Have you seen victory? Oh, one eight hundred eighty eight. Than it a tire story. It's unbelie it's what it's it's unbelievable that it's been since eighty eight it's just thinkable just put it this way or Hershiser is sixty years old in he was last winning pitcher in a world city ended World Series game for the dodgers. And he's sixty now that's how long it's been when you think back at this season, and we're not going to go and just start beating down on the team. And they're like, it's an accomplishment to get to the World Series. I back to back and forty years, but it's still disappointing. Is it a failure? What's the word describe this season Dylan? Well, I think here's the thing is that the league was bad the entirely was down like they should have gotten back. You know, in the fact that they got back with that team to me honestly shows how bad the NFL was probably the best five six for coming from the the American League to me the word is actually negligent..

"The first thing I on general that is the hall of Famer Chris Carter that is Nick, right? I am positive aid is Thursday. We had baseball last night. He had some good basketball night while you look at me like that. Yes. That right. Right here. Right is here today. We got a whole host. We got a bevy of wonderful people coming up LeBron James and the Lakers. Finally, get a win Amari Cooper has officially arrived in Dallas. But we start in Boston game two of the World Series. Where the Red Sox were looking to take to nothing lead over the dodgers. And here we go. It was drama and here comes that drama. They said David price to the hill. Bottom two, and Ian Kinzler singles two left to bring in the first run of the game. And the Red Sox are up one nothing. Let's jump to the fourth. We're tied at one Nick sky. Yes. COP with a single to center that will bring home a dodger and takes the one run lead price not thrilled. We does go onto strikeout. Austin Barnes price goes sticks. Innings gives up just three hits two runs. Bottom. Five now basis juiced game tied to JD Martinez. JD Martinez right there. We'll rip a single to right Red Sox. We'll go at four two Boston. Hold on to win by that same score. They take a to nothing World Series lead. Here's the winning pitcher David price after the game. David fact, BAC wins in the postseason you had that difficult for they took a two one. How did you? Considered the bitch. A lot of that. Fourth innings. Really good at that. Bitches Muslims swings. Balls. On your loan. So. Said in game for the ails warming up in the bullpen. You found something since then two trillion four what has changed? System. Take a lot of pride and being able to evolve. From from vista pitcher day-to-day or game the game, whatever it is just. You know, what to make judgments on the fly? You've been through a lot in the postseason the crowd on your side tonight. How gratifying this moment for you. If it was good definitely feels good. But. Like, I said before this happened. I'd rather go winless and we went to World Series amigo, four five zero and and we lose so. Playing baseball right now. That's very good team on this. We need to go to LA and not make it come back to Boston. Speaking of winless David price had gone, oh nine in his first ten postseason starts before taking the mound last night. So great win for him. Nick. What do you think was the key to Boston winning game two against it on and I'm happy for David price. Because it's now two in a row to starts in a row that he's well, and he was excellent at home this whole entire season. And then we saw in the beginning of the postseason once again those David game two of the AL DS. We saw David price. How's this going to go for him? And since then he's turned it around. Well, but to either two keys to the game one on the dodgers side and one on the dodgers managerial side on the dodgers often side. I mean, sixteen straight retired batters ten the game. That's the most consecutive retired batters to into game since an World Series since Don Larsen's perfect game that was twenty seven twenty seven and this was sixteen up sixteen down in the game. And then on the managerial side and eight to be this guy. But for the second straight game in a high leverage spot. Dave roberts. Goes to Ryan Madson again he goes to Ryan medicine in game one. It's three three bottom. Five minimum base. You've pull Kershaw right Manton for four pitch walking. All of a sudden couple batters later, it's five three he'll house. Both of his inherited runners to score last night. Dodgers have a two one lead basis loaded and you go to Ryan Madson five pitch walk now to game. And then a single he'll out all his inherited runners to score. He's got the most misleading zero point zero Yara anyone's ever had in the World Series because he's allowed five of five inherited runners to score. So Madsen comes in gives up the lead. See and in the bats don't get don't get on base. Again, the rest of the game. That's a recipe to fall down to the World Series. That's a huge part of the story David price the Billy to build a backup. The one performance that he had at home..
"dodgers" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Dodgers Red Sox at Fenway. Chris sale gets the nod for Boston LA going with. But in Kershaw, it's pretty critical. I mean, I really want to win the World Series. I think that's no different than the other fifty guys in both locker rooms though. I think it doesn't. I think the only difference is that because we've gotten so close in the past because you've got me go to the postseason. We're a little bit spoiled in our expectations every year with the dodgers. Which is a great thing. But realistically, you're going to spring training. You know, every team says they want to win a World Series. But realistically, that's probably not an option for at least half the team. So for us when we really say we really mean it when we're getting to go the postseason six times in a row, it becomes that much more evident that we're very fortunate to be on a great team. But we're still missing that ring. Yeah. There's no secret that we wanna win forecast for game one little chilly, but they may be able to avoid the rain, Alex Cora and Dave Roberts. First time. We've had World Series with managers who have played for both teams or baseball tonight grew for core perspective a lot of people say Roberts was here. Last year that experience is huge to balance out to me. You know, what really matters is Alex Cora has pressed every right button this postseason. He wins three out of four against New York. Whence four out of five against the defending world champion. Houston Astros, outscore has no problem being here in the spotlight. And I think the experience he gained has been the bench coach last year plays big into this. I've known Alex a long time came out with him in the dodger organization play with oh. Eight here in Boston. This guy has been looking forward to this moment. He's been paired Barron his whole life for this. He's going to be reading number one payroll in baseball soccer about some of those players that of course, they may have the MVP by most people's guests. Mookie Betts is going to win it sock about Mookie. No damage yet in the postseason homered yet. And yet he's. Making his impact felt just wait for Mookie. He's ready to explode here in the World Series. And he's going to face three out of four lefties as starting pitchers for the dodgers. And you're throwing lefty left. You gotta feel that movie's gonna get locked in here and especially here at Fenway with that green monster in left field. He's going to do some damage and not offensive side. This right field is tricky. It is the center field here and way, he plays Goldwell d.

Dodgers local nays dodgers really heavy her dog. So Gibson's their hero. He can't play. It's like the sixth sixth or seventh inning.

He tells Mitch go tell Tommy I'm ready says what out until Tommy I'm ready mitch's wearing gym shorts in a t shirt. He's not allowed in the dugout. He's a backup.

So he came back to town bobble head first pitch and finally agree to do it. So they announce it though, not the first pitch. Kirk Gibson standing ovation out to the mound walks.

And so unlikely in the most unlikely team maybe ever win a World Series. Honestly and fans have just been hunger for that and hungry for that. And now in recent years, you've had so much money and so much talent. And he still haven't got it done. And that's why fan just are longing for it. And ended the have a go to game seven last year was devastating it. I almost wish he hadn't even gotten to the playoffs at all losing game seven devastated. A town devastated. The team devastated in for the first couple months of this year. It's a hungry town for this thing and at eighty and then that's why 'cause eight eight lives on and the legend is Bill have a huge role on the arrive early leave late podcast. Thanks glad it's called arrive. Relieve late is a play on because dodger fan Ellie fan. Do. They're the best sports fans. Hey, they are smartest sophisticated fans in the world.

"dodgers" Discussed on WEEI
"Two three four NBC's a number. Then you got Charlie Morton, Charlie Morton's, one double digits double digits this year. He's a number five starter. You know, many teams would kill to have a guy like Charlie Morton as their number two. Maybe even their number three starter. Why I like Houston just as much as Boston is. Because when you get to the post. Season you need three pitchers three starters. That's it. They stagger. The games couple of days apart, you get the travel schedule. You get an opportunity for guys to be able to get some rest. You don't need all five starters Verlinden is going to start game one game three and a game seven. If necessary you're going to go with your number two guy in Dallas kaikal who do you want for three? I would go Garrett Cole. You can go mccullers. It all depends on the lefty righty matchup. So ever you wanna die stat out your four and five starters are going to be the first couple of guys off the bench. What you're going to do is get rid of those guys who normally pitch in the fifth and sixth inning to try and shore and bridge the gap until you get to your bullpen, which is a solid bullpen as well. With those sooner. I no sooner had those off the field issues with domestic violence when he came over. And the Astro said, let's give this guy chance. Let him address the team. They've now put that behind him water under the bridge, and they are completely. Galvanized eight five five three two three four N B C. So who is going to lose to Houston or Boston in the World Series? Take your pick. It could be several teams in the National League always liked to get the intro out of the way, the executive producer of the Bush leagues on Friday night. Anyway, as Nick egging on the wheels of steel Nick knows nothing about sports except everything about the dodgers. And he knows about wrassling. Alright. So Nick, I'm gonna bring you on right now are the dodgers the team to beat in the National League. Absolutely. Why? Dodgers of thank you. Thank you for there. The dodgers. Okay. Good enough. Man. I'll go ahead and take into that headline to Billie Jean King buys into the dodgers ownership as well too. So how about that women empowerment out in LA? I mean, what better place for that as well too? So good luck to her. I know she is a native of Long Beach star out of Long Beach, poly highschool, which of course, is but the most players in the National Football League eight five three two three four NBC. But the dodgers about to lose to the Rockies which would make them a game and a half up on Colorado's wait a minute. The game isn't over yet. I know the game's not over yet. But also with this about to lose it's about to lose. Okay. Trust me. I've seen enough of it. So hard to lineup comedy hard liners coming at you can come up all you want. Okay. Eight five five three two three NBC is an Auburn. I'm just keeping a real homie. All right. You got the cubs. You can like them just as much they won the World Series a couple of years ago. They have tons of talent the Atlanta Braves, I think still a little bit ahead of their time, boys. Ronald a kunia junior for age nineteen were you doing at nineteen? I was doing some stuff. I'm not very proud of an even at this time slot. I probably shouldn't tell you what I was doing at age nineteen and all this guy's doing is just raking and setting major league baseball on fire. So a very bright career for that young, man. But I think the Braves still a little bit too fast too soon. So you wanna talk college football. You wanna talk the National Football League. You wanna talk major league baseball the phone lines open to you as well. You got to get by. Nick screener, though. So keep that in mind eight five five three two three four NBC US's. Probably I dunno cheated their way to lay they just took the lead. And on Washington state thirty one to thirty in that game. It's getting good. Stick around mortar.
