"B esides the fact that i cannot go anywhere. I can't watch or read anything with the critical lance without thinking about or employing. your term misogynoir very fluidly as it is now very much a part of mainstream lexicon and i'm sure you're probably like well so and so also used the term. I can imagine how that must feel. It's an interesting feeling. Actually if i if i may elaborate you know it's one exciting that people find the term useful and then also really disheartening. That it has to be used so much. I'm both excited and also troubled. That makes it a double edge sword. Absolutely. I 've been intrigued by your public scholarship for some time, in the ways y ou've examined intersectional issues of B lackness, gender, and sexuality, queerness, ability and disability in a very accessible way. I'm eager to learn more about your journey and i'm sure my listeners are. so are you ready? all right. Let's get into it. Act 1, call to adventure. M oya as a writer and public scholar there are paths we take, processes w e engage in to get us to where we are today. How did you become interested in doing the work. That's such a great question. I would say it started when i was young. I was a kid that had to go to the doctor a lot. And so i knew that i was going to be a medical doctor. I just knew it. Then i went to Sp elman for undergrad and at S pelman, I fell in love with women's studies and that feel like woke something up in me. And what did it awaken? As a woman studies scholar. I started to think about how ideas and stereotypes about black women circulate in medicine and then have an impact on how black women are treated when they do go to the doctor. Those are very large and robust but important issues to contend with when considering your own career trajectory. i was just trying to think about like if there is a way that representations actually inform societal treatment for Black women. We need a better way to talk about it. And so as i was writing my dissertation in grad school. That's what i was trying to get to with the term misogynoir; w hat is it about h ow black women are treated in medicine t hat is informed by t he s ocietal representations of black women that are so damaging and how does that transfers happened? How did those representations actually then impact what happens in medicine or other societal institutions. It seem like during graduate school particularly while you were writing your dissertation. Those were the moments in which you realize we need lexicon. We need frameworks to understand Black women's experiences. W as there another moment or experience at this time t hat informed your work? I was thinking about this as a grad

NBC's Matt Gutman. In Tel Aviv where Hamas is aimed a number of rocket attacks. Most of the people who we've spoken to you here frankly, they say, Okay, we've gotta attack Gaza got to put an end to Hamas. We've gotta retaliate. There's ah, smaller subject of the people with whom I've spoken to say, OK, way need peace. We need to come to terms with these people. This'll can't happen anymore.

Who Will Pick Kyle Pitts in Thursday's NFL Draft?
"All right. Let's have fun here with. Kyle pits blank will select kyle pits right. I think it's the falcons. I mean friscos. Been talking about this for some time. He doesn't think that the falcons are gonna take a quarterback he thinks arthur blank is all in on on matt ryan for another year to have a new coach and the new general manager. And here's the thing like if you trade down four. And i suspect it'll be teams interested in trading up to four to get whether it's trae lance macaroni justin fields. If you're the falcons if you move down if you move down you're not getting cockpits. That's just the end the conversation because either the bengals. The dolphins entertainment five or six and presumably. You're not trading with those teams already have quarterbacks. So that's the math you're doing and if you're not getting likely to march as we saw a report on monday for peter king that maybe julio jones could be moved with which seems crazy what they need a cap space Could you turn down for. Cornerback if the falcons you could but again what gives you more value in terms of making that football team better. I think it's how pet. So if i'm the falcons and i'm not taking justin feels matteo's trae lands i'm sampling. Taking cup pits. Janssen the blank blank. We'll take pets. I think it's it's atlanta. But i also be surprised if the team traded up with the falcons maybe even take pits like ryan saying you know the train up to the quarterback but you know teams fall in love your dallas. You know thousand the four but you know if a team really loves him that much and it's hard not to love that much than you could see. Maybe a team being overly aggressive. I think it was on On the nfl network this morning on good morning football there was a segment that they do with the giants traded up. You know. I don't know who is doing the job. Esau just a screen grab of it on twitter but the giants gave their first or second ebony ingram and something else to move up to four to get pits and it was you know something that on paper make some sense but you know. Obviously something is not likely to happen but still i would say it's four is where he goes. But the falcons do make some sense especially they decided we want from me jonesing. Another playmaker

He played against wasn't at the level of an sec. Or or a power five. So they're all these questions about him and yet the talent is undeniable character. Everything checks out and yet he is still this relative unknown. Just because of all these circumstances that include pandemic related cancellations the fact that he played one game in the last year. He's really a fascinating study. Because somebody's gonna take him very high draft and you get the feeling that they aren't going to be completely sure what they're getting. Yeah he is one of the top five quarterbacks in this year's draft him. Let's just start at the beginning here with young trae lance in marshall minnesota with his parents carlton and angie lance. What was his football career lake at marshall high school his football career at marshall high in a town of about fourteen thousand people at three hour drive west of minneapolis was very under the radar.

"My goodness they put on a passage clinic tonight in how not to throw a post-entry pass. They threw the ball everywhere but where it needed to go in that was sure frustrating. Yeah, and you know the Knicks they are they are incredible defensive team actually and you know, it's kind of it's it's nice to see Julius Randle playing so well off the same time. You don't like to see him. Obviously, you know, this was the Julius Randle Revenge game. We had kind of made reference to that in a really kind of turned into that. But yeah, as far as the big man Montrezl Harrell Draymond Green were effectively almost neutered and I I mean, I texted one point Rez looked like he was getting abused by Taj Gibson, you know, and you know, they were they just thought I'd like to you know, one point in me if the games to Lance was doing commentary. I don't know if you got that version, but I wouldn't like to see if the Lakers went really small to counteract the what they were doing on the interior, but then right after school and said that actually Frank Vogel decided to bring Casal and so for mantra so they went the the other route blood no matter what we looking at the page. Whole game I'm I personally I know a lot of people might be upset. But I personally am giving the Lakers actually a pass on this one and
Micro Four Thirds: Should I Stay or Should I Go?
"So this is an interesting decision for me. And i've gone over the pros and cons and let's start with why. I like microphone thirds in the first place. Now we've covered this extensively. I'm just gonna do a bullet list of top of mind. Things that really jumped out at me when i pickup a microphone thirds camera and the first thing that i think of these days. Is this fantastic lens. Catalog that you get with microphone thirds. I mean my gosh. You can get everything from an ultra super telephoto that you can handhold right to an ultra compact prime lens. That is barely bigger than the camera body itself. And i can find just the right thing that i want in the microphone thirds mount. And it's interesting. When i look at the lenses that i have for microphone third. They do fall into these two categories. I have my big lenses. My favorite big lands is the olympics. Forty two one fifty two eight pro. I just absolutely love that lands. I think it is a fantastic design the performances wonderful. And if you put the matched two x tele converter on it you go from eighty to three hundred which is really one sixty six hundred in field view equivalency all that and i cannot tell losing a pixel worth a quality by using the wwre so i mean in the big lens category for me. That is my sweet spot but there are other optics. And i actually put my seventy five millimeter. F one eight in the big lance Category because it is especially when you have the metal the matched metal lens hood on it. It's a heavy lands. It's relatively big lens and it's a sweet lands

Yesterday I went out and bought me a handheld radio off. Just Resting So With that said I have five reasons why. Putting a runner on second base is a good is a good thing, okay? Okay, I one is. you know there was a time where there was some question about to be h, and how this any different than bringing something new into the leak than the D. H. is okay or was twenty years ago whenever that was. And I would argue that it is a less of a change. Get put a run on second base in an extra inning game. That rarely happens than it is bringing in the. Let. Your I think the reds played fifteen extra inning games all of last season. It's not like I think people freak out because they think it's going to happen all the time. It's GONNA happen a couple times a year. And number two is. It's fair for both teams. It's the same for both teams. Okay and number three is. Following up on being fair as that it keeps fans interest just. you know because there's been a complaint that that the goal is to speed up the game bottle of law, and and and that's that's GonNa help that. number four is the players are shooting themselves in the foot because they're. They're gonNA. You know if they don't feed up the game if they do things to like like the reds. Community Fund and and develop the the the younger element. I'm sixty so I'm a I'm a reds fan for life. I was born in born and bred Cincinnati and diet since I read saying, but but my my grandchildren aren't i. say that though they either need to involve evolve. Million dollar contracts. Yes. And There's a bunch of them have million dollar contracts law. GonNa go away. The game goes way. And then when the fifth reason is strategy, it brings back some small Bo-. Yes, it does I, if you I coast travel softball ten years, and and that's what that's what they do in softball games is run on a second base, and it changes the whole strategy, the game and the first thing you need to do blunt that girl over two third. And or you know because? Right now it's okay. We're GONNA win the game winning home run. No. They're not. GonNa win the game with a home run. You need because it's. GonNa hit a home run team's GonNa. Run over to third third base and then hit a fly. The strategy to I think it's GonNa. Be Fascinating to see how teams play at once. They do get extra innings. They don't play like. If they don't play like you do on the softball game, I'd be surprised because you know if you're gonNA. Take. Take three cracking somebody many somebody hitting a single scored him, or are you gonna come over and then and then and then get back. I. I can't wait to find out John.

It clicked for him once he left and Kudos to him I just don't think hall of Famer for a franchise. It never really kicked into gear for Ya.

There's going to be I think there were seven days where they both would play at PNC based on their home schedules, so I don't know if that would be a a noon. Blue Jays game followed by seven o'clock pirates, game or something like that, but you'd have to work that out, but there's only the thirty. There's only seven of them that would be a crossover that both play on the same day, but think about this. The season starts on Friday and there are thirty Toronto Blue Jay players who are going to have to figure out where they are going to live starting on Friday for the next sixty six days. Whether, it's themselves whether it's their wife whether it's their wife and kids and the their stuff, their stuff has to get from where they are in Toronto to some other place. That's either in a permanent a condo home the renting. That's by frighten out of the not the end of next month. That's on Friday. They need a place to play and donate a place to live. and. That has not been figured out at this point, but how about the Toronto Blue Jays playing in Pittsburgh at PNC park in and around the pirates schedule all right back to the phones about cell phone and we go. Michael Welcome to sportstalk. Loria what do you make of all this? Year. The Canadian for could've give the bluejays a little bit more heads up on that. Yeah I the Blue Jays. We're waiting thinking like a last minute reprieve and the conditions would be better, but that has not happened. So, what do you think about this foul ball idea? I will see your sellable and I will raise one yeah. Okay. Do you remember and I don't know thread. Still do the throughout, but you remember the like the skyline step of the Mike thing to do you have a kid at the start of the inning would announced. Who's The leadoff batter? Yeah. Okay. Why not have like like literally guys? That during any and then fell about all. They get that by ball. will be I mean the kids can't be in the perks how they're going to make the announcement Berko Berkeley. I see what you're saying. We could, even in theory have them record? You can have a bunch of them. Already in storage like different players doing each kid gets a different name I. See that yeah, you could, you could punch that up on the scoreboard, and it could be Johnny from Madeira, who now batting for the Cincinnati reds, the first Baseman Joey Votto, or you could even have his team literally team standing behind the kid cheering once he announces his name. I mean that's what I was thinking. What you maybe prerecord, yeah? ooh, bad yeah. To wear, the kid would say now. Betty the first baseman. Rod and then real quick on the Pollen Neil saying yeah, I think Neil more of as a Yankee red. Yeah. I agree with you. I think his and again. He wasn't I'm certainly not saying. He was bad as he was, he was. Decent to good as a red. He was great as a Yankee and I. Just I think as a Yankee Hall of Famer so? On your empty animosity between him and there is the way he was treated by giving Boden and the trade. Maybe may maybe there's probably a couple of layers to all of that. Michael I gotta run. Thanks, Buddy. Good here, no good hearing from me, Matthews Sale and now he's on seven hundred wwl W, A. Good how are you? Hey now to. This piggybacking off of your idea basically but. Masa is, makes this poor hands on for the kids and yeah. Basically you have your idea where you can still bid on the foul balls, okay? But with how kids are today? Electric I'm thinking..

"One more from a Reggie. We kind of have a theme tonight. We've heard from Chris Welch who joins US IT START KIRK. Sally heard from Tucker Bernard from Nate Jones one more, and I heard this the other night driving home from Trevor Bauer when he joined the guys on MLB radio, talking about and we. We've referenced this before. The good staffs, the feed off of each other. And I'm not saying the reds staff is the brave staff of the ninety when I make this analogy, but the the braves have said over the years that Galvin's Maddox smoltz guys like that they the competition they fed off of it, and it raised their game from one start to the next. There's also the added element in this case with the reds of the makeup. The stuff on this starting rotation listen to what trevor. Bauer told the guys from MLB radio the other night about the competition and about the differences within that pitching rotation. I if you'd office obviously the competition on the field watching a guy, go out there and punch out ten and seven shutout like Oh man. Like stepped my game up I got you know I gotTa do better? That's everyone feels that way. You know so the the competition on the field drive each other, and then when you're sitting in the dugout and you're talking about okay. What did you see with them last night? And you're allowed. You approach it, and we'll have such different approaches. Right I mean Sonny is very heavily. Breaking ball like that sinker, comebacker and stuff like that Casteel is very heavily like a sinker and a change at. I'm almost exclusively for Siem and curveball and breaking balls, so we'll all different approaches. And we can Kinda, learn. CAST is like this guy. You know when I saw this in swing. Through a change happens like okay well. I can use that because I got a changeup. It's not nearly as good as yours, but I put that in back of my mind, so so we can bounce stuff off each other and then. Wade Majlis been around and seen a lot as well and you got the finding there as well who I mean. We all have our unique ways of going about approaching it, but we all have our very distinct strengths, and those are things that can pass back and forth to each other, and that's even starting to talk about the bullpen and what they see on the town. We got down there. I like that that's good stuff from from Trevor Bauer by the way on a starting pitching level down below. I don't I. Don't know what to make of this. Nothing has come out of it today, but last night. Hundred Green tweeted and posted on instagram. A locator at said Cincinnati Ohio And he tweeted in all capital letters. Let's go. Leading to rapid speculation about what that meant, the obvious instant reaction is wait a minute. He coming. Is he coming to town or they adding him to the player pool? Now what I find it intriguing that stayed up for a couple of hours and then was removed. Here's here's what I could see happening. The reds have would dietrich now asking for and receiving his release, they still have three openings on their sixty man player pool. I could see the reds announcing. They've added hundred green to the pool and he'll. Go and I could see the reds also say you know. What are you doing? You're killing his here. You can't. You can't release transactions before we make transactions because there might be other moving pieces and parts to all this I could see that scenario I don't know. I could see this area where somebody says hey, take that down because a something might happen, so maybe he's taking it down. But what would it surprise me if they added him to Pasco No? Hundred Green missed all of last season because of the Tommy John Surgery. He setting up to miss another season because there's no minor league season. And keep in mind. The last time he pitched was twenty eighteen in through sixty eight innings that year we talked about this last week. His his senior year in high school. They kid gloves him and let him only make five appearances. Then the reds drafted him. They sent him to billings. He pitched four and a third innings in billings when he was seventeen then in two thousand. Thousand Eighteen pitches at Dayton. He made eighteen appearances through sixty eight and a third innings. Then he had the elbow issues at shut him down at the end he tried to Rehab rested didn't work. He had Tommy John. Surgery missed all of last season man. It would not be good for anybody if he missed all of this season now he's not going to have a season, but. You could adding depress. Go and having throw on a regular basis as part of the reds player pool, and then I don't know that we're gonNA, get crazy and say if push comes to shove or if he's really feeling good, you know the I. Find It hard to believe. They were jumping from low a Dayton in two thousand, eighteen to the major leagues in September Stranger. Things have happened, but it would not shock me if after all of that last night in a tweet and then in an instagram Cincinnati is the locator. Let's go in all capital letters than being. We would see in the next day or so. The reds announced they have added hundred green to the player pool in. He will work with the group out of prisco Park would not shock. We've reached the midway. Point of the show I've got an idea. I got a lot of ideas. Some are bad. I think this idea works. I think it would be good for you. I think it would be good for the reds. I think it would be good for the reds community. Fund will lay that out as we continue its Arnelle carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet at seven hundred. WWL, W.

Rachel's in tonight for Gary Jeff Walker nine to midnight. Thanks for all the tweets I'm Atlanta's mcallister twitter feed is presented by my friends at barley corns. They have three locations in northern. Kentucky and they are hiring at each of those locations. Thanks to Burley Corns for presenting the twitter feed quick, follow up in their own wants you to hear a couple of things at Kirk. Sally said. Today or a over the weekend what Chris Welch said about Shogo. The most fundamentally sound reds player since Scott Rolen. And he said you're GONNA love it. I go back to what David Bell said last week when he was two weeks news here on Sports, talk and he talked about show goes approach at the plate. Approaching it as a craft was the word he used. The baseball I Q. The ability to run the bases. You may not steal a lot of bases, but one thing you saw him do yesterday. He singled on a on a chopper up the middle. Joey votto was up next and Joey flared one to right and Shogo went I a third like it was nothing. If, Shogo can get on base. What that does to jump start this offense. Last legitimate on BASS GUY team had was Shinsu chew in two thousand thirteen. Think of what it does to the rest of that batting orders at falls into place, and just think about all those little things that when you are when you're described the way Chris Welch described him. You're hitting the cutoff man. You're throwing to the right base. You're taking the extra base. You're hitting behind the runners. All of those things are huge, and it seems as though they're just. They come naturally a second nature to show Gawky. That's him as a baseball player and I love that. Kirk Rally said something, a couple of things that that stuck out with eight, and the more I hear, Kirk talk and he was with segued for a while during the the Doug had interviews during the last baseball, but Kirk Sally one has a as a great voice to. He has really good insight into the game he could articulated in threes got a sense of humor, and if you add all that up, I tweeted this earlier I. Think Kirk Alec can be a baseball analyst someday whether it's TV or radio MLB. Network whatever it is, he's a really smart guy. Can talk the game baseball and inject a little bit of humor in it and I? I've always enjoyed what he's been on the show with me as well. He was asked about remember last week. We talked to MLB DOT. COM ranked the top ten starting rotations in baseball, and they write the reds third and I did a topic on that now we talked about the depth, the quality and depth of that read starting rotation Kurt was asked about it any said third. I think three is a little low I think this should be higher I think our staff did something crazy last year with with a turnaround that they did you know from dozen eighteen two dozen nineteen. They put in a lot of hard work the DJ Caleb. They did a lot of work on their own and. We came together as a staff for sure I mean are if you look at our lineup of? Are Starting reducing. Excuse me, I mean! On paper, it's scary and in real life. It's even scarier and I'm not I. don't even think it's top. Heavyweight people are saying I. Think when you you know you guys like disco. Fonteyn Wave Miley get just lost because the top three are just so talented, but. Wade through Friday night Napoli Card might team up and disco throws about the most untalkative about ninety six, ninety seven in the big league, so he's got wipe out slider. So from that perspective I think we're really good, I think. I think we're both ends. Accept Challenge and and and. Do what they did last year in and take a step up. Into two thousand and twenty I think he'll be better. Lorenzo is going to be better. guy like Pedro. STROKE IS GONNA. Come in and add some to our door Volkan. Amir Stevenson. These guys, these guys all have caliber experience now they have a lot of experience in and hopefully stars go as long as possible, and they won't have too much, but when they get in. They're gonNA. They're gonNA. Close the door and help us preserve someone's bill. That was good stuff on raids rotation low at three overall on paper. It's scary in real life. It's even. Even scarier reds catcher, Kirk Sally and I loved his answer when he was asked about it. I think everybody's wondering what.

"Here we go eight Oh, nine seven hundred wwl, wer carriers sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet I would be your host Lance McAlister I would be very appreciative of the fact. You have chosen to spend some time hanging out. We'll see what we can do over the next fifty one minutes, and then it's Rachel and from nine to midnight tonight by the way. If you missed a conversation with a mere Garrett, it was powerful. It was moving, and it was insightful last night. I assume that's available in podcast form Yes podcast Rachel's interview with the mirror that's on. Is that podcast yet it is on podcast. It is worth listening if you happen to miss it last night. Excellent. The the the the conversation was was really really good stuff all right we We jumped into the reds I area from David Bell. You heard from Sonny Gray we talked about the decision on the day started the reds rotation. Couple of other things baseball related. We've morphed into our second topic. Night started with a fifty four year baseball executive who retired over the weekend at a piece written to the Associated Press he wrote. A piece titled. Confessions of a baseball purist talking about what he doesn't like about the game anymore and that led to a caller who's going to jump in on that before they dropped off the other night about old school versus new school, and I said well I. Don't I don't WanNa miss out on that opportunity. Let me grab that thought and see if we can turn it into a topic of where you stand as a sports fan if you're more old school or new school. And I get clearly right now. It's overwhelming I've made it a twitter question. It's been the question on my facebook page all day today, a lance McAlister sports pages the facebook overwhelming old school, and I get longing for the air quotes here that good old days. But I, it seems like the default position is just take me back. Twenty or thirty years ago at everything was better than. I just I have a tough time being convinced going back twenty or thirty years there be more gained than there would be lost. I mean how far back do you want to go to keep it the way it used to be? Do you want leather helmets for football with no forward pass. T one peach baskets for the NBA. Do you want no mask for hockey I? Mean baseball one part I get. People complain all the time. Just leave the game alone. I don't like change in evolution well, if that's the case, how strict are you on that? Because baseball once allow batters to request where they wanted to pitch, like they'd hold their hand and say throw it right here. You want to go back to that used to be fly ball to be caught him on one bounce. That was an out. Up until eighteen eighty three pitchers threw the ball underhand. We Wanna go back to that because we don't like change. At one point in baseball bat was flat on one side. Walks were scored as a hit is Wasser as good as a hit. According to literally coach, Mary used to always say that the spitball up. Until one thousand, nine, hundred twenty was allowed. The ground rule doubles were actually home runs up until nineteen thirty if it hit and bounce in home run. But we evolved we changed. We realized that things can be done differently in a better way to upgrade it. Improve the game. I watch the Golf Tournament of the weekend and Bryson Sham to Shambo is going to be a topic tomorrow night I've waiting to get to all week, but just watching his drive and the graphic they use the ark of the red line, showing how far it goes, the to goes how it goes, and then the distance immediately. The fact that we're we're living in a age where you can wager on sports online on our phone. The the fact that we've a better understanding of how you go about winning in this day and age in sports because we have a better understanding of how a player is performing in relation to everybody else. I view all those things as progress as as pluses as new school. Old, school to me was watching a baseball game from thirty years ago over the weekend going what the Hell's going on. There's nothing on the screen. I don't get it in HD. And I. Don't know what the score is. I don't know what any it is I. Don't know what the county is and I.

Maybe I can like designated hitter. I start thinking about how in the you mean. The tenth inning have a runner on second base that means that show miles school They're going to have to cut some more.

"The game. It just sounds after fifty four years to go out that way. To me that's disappointing, go back to the phones. The red schedule is out and bit by bit. We learn a little bit more. John is on seven hundred wwl John. They Lance and thank you. Thanks for calling. A I. You almost wonder if that guy is just maybe i. mean and again he's advanced in age. So you kind of wonder if it's just one last chance. One last give it to everybody one more time, and and all that so I give them a little bit of a break on that, but I want the one thing I do that does frustrate me. A little bit on the analytics is just the the the ability for guys to just sit back and not put the ball in play swing from their heels on every on every swing and strikeouts. Go Way up, and that's the part that frustrates me about analytics I, I I guess I'm a little bit old school with putting the ball in play and moving runners and that kind of stuff, but I understand all the other parts of and all that type of stuff John. John you raise a great point and I think once there's a counter it'll help that because the reality is right now whether we like it or not Ottoman I. Don't like it as much. The reality is in the game today with pitchers dominating so much the number the percentages say it's going to be almost impossible to stern together three hits in an inning to get a runner home. The odd say the home run is better play for the home run. That is one run automatically when so until the odds tilt the other? Other way, and whether that's rule changes, or whatever right now pitching is so dominant in the game teams look and say. Can we really string together three hits in an inning or or two hits a button? Everything else, and they say the odds will indicate right now. If we swing from our heels, we'll take the home run or the strike at the end result, and that saddens me, but something has to count. Something has to happen in the game to counter at the other way, and that may be rule changes or be. I don't know. Maybe it's taking something away from the pitchers to even things out and I don't know what that's going to be ultimately. Yeah Yeah and I think one thing to add onto that I think one of the rationales to is that you have enough mediocre to bad pitching in baseball that a lot of people say hey, look we can. We can be halfway decent if we just try to hit as many home runs. Yes, we can, but unfortunately, if we see a lot of time, those teams get into fo season or down the stretch, and as we know good pitching, and usually wins out and the one team that did kind of the tables all been almost hate to say it because people get fired up about this, but the Astros. Astros a few years ago was a team that kind of put the ball in play and kind of did things away now they did have some guys that could hit home run, but they also kept their strikeouts way down and put the ball played, and usually those things are kinda contagious so i. don't know if that would kinda start turning things, but anyway just real quick dealing on the Scheduler I'm really excited about it, and unfortunately you're going through the schedule and talk about all the records of the teams. All here we go I can read get off to a great start. You're going to play. Well. We haven't beaten anybody. You all. Don't give them any ideas that I can tell inundated on Xtra ratings with those calls. Man. Playing anybody talking about. Thanks John Good talking to you. That idea yet some point, an extra ratings, they'll break from the gate, nine and one well. They've beaten the Tigers and the OH. No but I think John made a good point about trends and it becomes. It's always a copycat league. Joe Madden over the weekend. The angels manager said he wonders he wonders what the extra inning rule the way it is if we don't see more of an infusion of bunting. The hit and run and the stolen base, perhaps at least in extra innings, we'll head down the stretch. We gotTA Hustle on this date in reds history to close it out.

"Know this. Well. Let me catch myself I. was about to say just know this? We're going to get baseball. I'd like to feel that way I. Don't feel as confident in that as I did when this announcement was, I made. But that's not going to deprive me of my giddiness at a schedule being released it. If for nothing else when I get home tonight, I can tell the owners my fantasy baseball league. What the setup is for ESPN? Fantasy Baseball League and start tracking down league fees at this point. So six days off scattered over the sixty games. September twenty seven the end of the regular season at this point this point a regular playoff setup. There were discussions during the muck and mire of all the debate back and forth between the two sides that there would be expanded playoffs. Those did not happen. When Rob Manford imposed the plan. There is a thought that maybe those talks could be resurfaced even on the fly between the owners and the players, but at this point let's also admit there are some. Some rather large fish to be fried when you have had eight players over the weekend, opt out from Nick marquess today. The Braves David Price of the Los Angeles dodgers over the weekend and others we get dribs and drabs of information about players that have tested positive some names. We know other names. We don't know and that's understandable at this point at. At least from the way, Major League, baseball a set it up and we know there is a growing concern within a baseball number of teams who the initial plan was. Players would get tested every day, and there were at least three teams today, either didn't get tested over the weekend or don't have test results back in three teams. Today said they were not. Not Practicing as a result, they were going to wait for the test to come back before they were back on the baseball field. So let's do this. We'll take a timeout back. We'll talk with. David Bell about how the first four days gone. What he thinks of a schedule of being in place and a whole lot more are carrier sportstalk presented by. Seven WWL W. Six, thirty seven.

David Lance McAlister how. Are you. Doing I'm well. Great to hear your voice and kind of exciting to schedule. We can look at. It. Makes it a little bit more real, doesn't it? Them sitting here, checking it out right now and a little over two weeks until. Opening night in Cincinnati and and. Makes it seem more real you know? We knew basically went opening day was going to be, but not seeing schedule. you know it's just? Fun, you know it's going to be. It's going to be here before we know so. It's gone smooth here the first few days and it's going to happen. Have to happen quick, but we're. Or each day we're getting closer and closer to being ready David. Let me springboard off of that because you guys are put so much time planning preparation into this with a lot of unknowns four days in. Do you like how things are playing out? We! Do we're? Really thrilled and you know you can do all the preparation and planning and talking and communicating but until. You get here and start What is? Just a completely different. Environment. You're not sure how it's going to turn out the were. Thrilled and the key to so far has been the attitude of the players you know players are. are motivated I. Don't like to get ready for the season, but they're motivated to stay healthy. Because they want to be able to play. They want to be able to compete They want. To be able to do that together as a team and she how good we can be We're so excited months from training ended and You know just to be able to pick back up where we left off and and see this all happened that that's. You know that kind of motivation to go through. You know if you. If you don't have the right attitude towards some of the protocols that were. Being asked to do need to do right now. To stay healthy they could create a bad environment and it could lead to. getting sick and you know our team. My priorities stay healthy their number one. Priority for. All of our wellbeing and The wellbeing of family members of our players and coaches and staff. and in the great thing is, that will also lead into other going. That's to be able to play and. David I've been struck over the last three months in talking with a couple of players Josh van meter told me his data is lunch hour was doing flips with him, and his girlfriend was dropping pitches into the batting machine to keep him ready Nate Jones. told me he built a pitching mound with his dad was throwing out of his barn. It seems as a whole. You guys really put in the work when they were away from this. there's no question and you know we. We can accomplish a lot in three weeks, but you know. The guys that? Came in ready to this can't in are going to have an advantage and our guys All of them did the work they stayed ready and it shows I have. Some guys that showed up in can't and and really the best shape of their life and they they really took. took the time not only to get in great shape, but. Probably just like other people in the situation and You know kind of the way you coached. this time and if you could somehow turn it into an opportunity. It'd be that much further that I players did not only did they get in great shape? But they you know that caught up on some health and rest and really came in ready to go and excited to be back on the field, and and they're in twos to be back. It seems like a guy who who caught up on things got healthy, and even streamlined his body and his in tremendous shape, but somebody like Nixon Zell. Ensure de. He was in he's. You know great athlete. He was what I consider to be good shape in spring training. He was strong. and you know I. Just I didn't think much of it When I saw him the other day for the first time. I was. Really surprised and Then, talking to him. she's thrilled with where his body. He was able to get body the big thing for him as go into. Rehab and onto the shoulder surgery, and all you can't. You can't do the same workout, so you would typically do so. it was able to get back to that over the last few months and years just in phenomenal shape, really lean, but strong stronger than he wasn't spring training, so it's just GonNa play into his athleticism and and it will.

"Hand You over to Jerry Jeff Walker. He will take you nine to midnight a baseball theme early and through a good chunk of the show tonight. The thought hit me as I prepared to welcome in our first guest. It is awfully nice to be talking with a baseball guest baseball stuff. Compared to negotiations and and labor issues and percentages of salaries and pro-russian of salaries and all that. The reds have handed in officially as of yesterday there player Pool for the two thousand twenty season. At the moment it contains fifty seven players thirty five of those players assigned to great American Ballpark to two of those players assigned to Prisco Park in Mason for Moran. That the man who was on the reds, beat and covers all things reds for MLB. Dot Com reds DOT COM. That would be Mark Sheldon. How are you? Doing good, lance and I hope you are too, and it's really nice to about baseball. Even getting yelled at on twitter for baseball stuff, so that's a nice refreshing change to absolutely i. Let's start with the basics here. fifty-seven players at this moment out of a possible sixty. What is the benefit of not going all the way up to sixty at this point for the reds? I think it's just more roster flexibility. If kinda like in the days before spring training or the opening day of the season, you might have a guy that gets released. Cut in the right for whatever reason they WANNA pick that player up it could you know? It's based on things that happened in camp when player might get hurt or just in his fit as others are. They WANNA add a guy Derek Dietrich is is out there. Still he's on the. Signed by the team, and then even the organization thought on that player polls yet you could be at. It could also add hundred green. You know maybe a couple of months down the road or a month down the road if they choose to, there's some maneuverability that way and market is not a clear line drawn in the sand. Great American is like Varsity and Pasco is junior varsity. It's not that clear as It's not some closure doing it that way. Some closer, Dylan it the the bigly called players or the ones that are have a shot at the big leagues, going to be a big league ballpark, and the rest of the dispatch to a minor league facility read. say they're not doing it that way. A lot of it is because they stacks so many pictures of GDP and catchers just simply because of. Of the rules, social distancing and other things like that they had the sense of people out to Mason now when the season does start the people that are obviously going to be stationed, practical park will be the equivalent of the minor. Leagues Aaa Louisville. If you will, that could be summit in called up. Should there be any and I would assume there's also that element if you're going to be split into two parts. There's GonNa be intersquad gained. So you need X. number of players at each place to fill out, get I mean you need a shortstop and both places third base I mean there has to be some level of consideration along those lines, right? I would think so. like you know this is. This is new to a lot of. The mechanism blueprints aren't totally clear yet, but hopefully that that will come into into focus, but yeah you have to figure. You gotTA. Have enough coverage because they're not only allowed to play three exhibition games against other teams during the next three weeks and stands to reason since there's no like in the same city like Chicago. There's to Chicago. Teams play each other here. There's not really that option and they may have to wait until whoever the the next the first team that comes to town that could be their exhibition. Apologetic Mark Sheldon MLB DOT COM dot com. Check it in Merck. How ultimately potentially at least could niccolo their first round pick a year ago? Factor into this equation? I think he can factor in I. Mean he was going to get cut? Cut I believe from the I can't remember from in March, but obviously guide her. Getting brought back like salary mono was caught, and he's been brought back I think with all could appear as as bullpen guy I mean theoretically I suppose he could be a starter. Should anything happen to the rotation by each figure with Molly figure? Look Assam's a couple. Couple of others they have some coverage. They're on the rotation side, but with all could be a piece for the for the bullpen. He could be accessible that way I don't think it would be a problem for him to make that jump at this change. I know you're getting this question. A Lot I think it's on the minds of everybody along. The lines of pitching in some school of thought, what if they go with a four man? What if they go with a six man why they go with a piggyback tandem? What do you make of potentially what the use of pitchers could look like? It's one of those things to see. When we actually talked to their Johnston and David fell, but I. I kind of expecting the five man rotation still to have a solid five man group. I, I don't know Trevor Bowers a big advocate of the former station, but that would mean somebody gets cut out and I. Don't see them doing that. the six man rotation. Over I. I really think. The reservoir set up in a lot of teams with the you know. What's the malaise? The SIMS OF ANY MODEL? If you other guys that they could, have you know in the early going. To go thirty. Three innings to four sixty to seventy five pitches, and then they have to bridge that gap with three or four inning relief, appearance and Mali concert do that. They can prepare them as a starter and kind of having back up the the other starter, so it'd be hard pitch cancer early innings limits things like that, and then we'll. We'll see how those guys do, but. But I think middle relief is going to be a huge part of the equation going into the regular mark among the guys who ultimately dolt become a part of this pool. Who our prospects whether it's hundred green or someone who's not even in the pool right now. Are Reese hines Stewart Fairchild? Guys like what happens to them in ultimately in the twenty twenty season. Another Mr. Lance I think there's been some rumblings that there might be an attempt to have a fall league of some sort. for minor leaguers didn't get to play anywhere this this year. Their skills having a row too much. A lot of them are probably working via zoom with with their coaches, and what their strength people and their trainers. But that's one of the mystery it hasn't been figured out yet. They're really just really focused on the bigly. Friday is the first workout is is the phase between now and then like the we call it. The intake phase of what's happening right now. I kind of equate Wednesday July first. Is the report A. That's the kind of the day. They have to be there now. What happens is and some players have already done. This is that when they show up at the ballpark and report quote Unquote they get tested, and then they have to isolate away from the ballpark for two full days, and then they're allowed to come back if they test negative, so a lot of guys are GonNa have already done this and a few more. We'll probably do it on. Wednesday and then theoretically everyone will be ready for Friday. Final question on I know this is ever evolving situation in. Probably, there's things you're trying to figure out in your mind, but. Ultimately this season. What will what will covering this camp this spring training two point Oh, and then the regular season be like for a member of the media. Someone who was a beat writer like you? Honestly, it's another thing that I'm still waiting to see how it turns out I mean I've seen the world. I've heard the rules our interview. Be Done over zoom whether you at the Ballpark, or if you covered the ancient home, I'm likely not going to travel, so it's GonNa. be a different thing. you know what there's going to be lost? And maybe some of the more unique nuance that that that is able to be gained from a reporter, standing clubhouse, and talking to a player in a more or less formal environment. When they're on camera when they're on the radio and things like that would have been werner formal a little more. stilted and I'd like to. You know that's GonNa be Kinda lost for a while, but at the same time I it's hard to complain about lack of nuance when there was no season at all. So I'm I'm accepting. This I'm hoping that by this time next year we're in the middle of a regular season, and it's been going on since the end of March and everything's back to normal. Obviously, we don't know that, but hopefully this little sixty games sprint will be interesting and the red. They still think are as competitive in division. They were before the the.

That baseball can be fun and I feel like a lot of people are kind of. Losing the thought of Baseball being fun. Everyone looks at it as boring and I think our main goal is just to go out there and realize how fun baseball really is 'cause baseball's giving. All four of us that are heading. The instructors at the camps that we've surrounded our life baseball man everything. Everything that's going on right now. All everything's so negative. We weren't we WANNA have some fun and tease kids a little bit and let them have fun I see. You are one of four instructors for this.

You know it's one of those things that minor league baseball like everybody else. We haven't had any business as far as the though so we're always throwing out ideas. And actually we were the owner and his daughter. We were sitting in the office. Filling out ideas and randomly the hair airbnb came up and it was like well. Yes, we can run with this. And we just started running with. It happened about three weeks ago and you know with everything being on true lockdown. We were just planning for eventually. We will open up once. We opened up what you may do and this was one of the ideas that we came up with. And, it's been going well. What is the cost per night to rent the stadium? We fifteen hundred dollars for ten people to be able to sleep in the clubhouse. You abandon cage, and of course used to field as well one of the great things. We have as well as a lot of upgrades that you're able to have their. You can have a fireworks show. You could have a movie night. You can have a set up just like you know. The the big leaguers with the cage and everything else to and then, of course we have chef on staff, which is a pretty unique for us as well so you can have any meal that you would like They're in the clubhouse. We've actually already had. We also run bubbling sweet spot candy store, and I screamed shop that we actually have an ice cream bar or the first weekend so It's really exciting for the. The people get to use the ballpark and of course for us, you know the big thing is meeting on mission to improve the quality of like not merely and and being able to let people have that ability to come there for pretty affordable price and get to being in the stadium, and and of course jobs you know that that's key and making sure that we're able to employ people, and and even have jobs at the Blue Office Jonathan. What's the response been since these nights became available? Pretty Amazing not only immediate pension. Wise. We've been literally worldwide. We were Japan. Canada. But we, we sold out our first thirty three nights within twenty four hours. And we've actually. Reservations because of the fact that we don't. We'll have based on July and August, and show then we'll be starting in the fall and then fortunately, unfortunately, we have a college football team that plays here as well University of Florida, so we're kind of working around everything to make sure that we don't have football players or baseball players dinner..

What did you say to two hundred eighty eight game three point one? That's right around two hundred sixty a fact that he plays all of them, and he hit four, hundred or two hundred and fifty back. He's got my respect. There's no doubt about dad. Hey, send my best to your daughter. Senator Mike. Congrats all right. Thank you so much. Thank you for the call. Yeah, let's do the math here. It's eighty two to qualify for the batting title. It's the number of games in a season times three point one plate appearances I. I'm pretty sure and that, so that's that's two, and that's eight zero, and that's a six there and twenty four. That's a two four and carry the one. But their math on the radio live with Lance mcallister, that's two hundred and fifty four plate appearances to qualify for the title that means if someone who who hit more than that, but only had two hundred plate appearances. They wouldn't qualify to beat out. But in context of history I view it differently I. Think most would I think there's team in teams. Would all be competing well as I say this I can think of the counter, but I was GONNA say teams would all be competing in the same games? It'd be eighty two game window for everybody in the world series debate as as Terry Francona references. Hey, everybody has eighty two games the last one. One standing is the winner you could argue. Everybody would have the same eighty two games to accumulate their batting average. Why would it be well? It wouldn't be different in terms of who won the batting title. It would be different viewed in terms of if it was the accomplishment of hitting four hundred for the first time since one, thousand, nine, hundred eighty. What is how I would view it? You would certainly had. Everybody would would have the same chance to win the batting title for Eighty Two gapes. And,.
