The Key Role CFOs Play in Making Profitable Pricing Decisions with Steve Rosvold
"What i wanna do is talk about. Cfo's today and i want. I want to learn more about how they think. And hopefully you can share that with us before you met me. How did you think. Cfo's thought about pricing. You know. I think certainly in the past and frankly when i was the last. Cfo job ahead with seven or eight years ago. And you know it's a cost plus it's looking at margin. Cfo's have been focused on the cost side of the business and the margin side of the business so they looked at the top line but only relation to the margin. And i think when we first met not long ago the whole idea of value pricing is really interesting. And it's something the cfo's a travel through having a more valuable contribution to their companies are having understand pricing for more of a perspective than just cost plus or an hourly rate or even fixed rate. And so that's a really attracted me to your work at impact pricing because you really preach the value of pricing and how to increase. I think that's a great place for cfo's to start adding an increasing their value to the companies. I certainly agree with that. Of course we published an article on. Cfo university on your site. What two three weeks ago now. Something like that. Have you heard anything different from. Cfo's have they have gotten excited of they said. Hey this is a way. I wanna thank in the future. I think almost totally. It's been a positive where the hard part comes in is. How do we do it. This value based pricing. How do i have an influence on that. And how do i create that value for the company so yeah it had very positive but the question mark remains for the cfo and you hit it on the head. We're very focused on cost. We maybe don't understand value well enough when it comes to pricing products and services. So that's where the quandary for us we want to get there. We're not sure how so. That's why i'm so excited to have you as part of one of our contributing to see if what i university because you can teach i think so much to our to our members and the cfo community at large so very popular article people they want to be able to create that value and help companies influence in a positive way and so it was really a really positive from its acceptance. Now there's the big education piece. How do we get there.

Recapping a Crazy Week in Crypto History
"Let's start however with a quick review of the stories that i covered in detail. The banner headline was of course elon. Musk and his fickle strange relationship with bitcoin. Dosier in public media. I've discussed this extensively this week. Saw only add this here. There is a conversation to be had about the power of audience in other words. This story isn't just about his whims and vagaries. It's also about how power is met. It out via social media alone has a bigger microphone. Nearly any corporate officer in history. Sure steve jobs could have called the press conference. That had every outlet there but ilan can think of something stupid while taking a dump and push billions from markets. In less. Than a minute of typing. There is a larger question. Here that once again comes back to unresolved issues of social media in society. By the way. If you're interested in this. I've got an exciting joint show with someone that i think you'll really enjoy to explore it more in depth than the next couple of weeks. I also covered the finance fudd around the department of justice in irs investigation first and probably most importantly the headline of the bloomberg p. seems to have been a little fearmongering considering that the sub-headline made it clear that binds has been accused of no wrongdoing. My point in my coverage however was that basically whatever the outcome is probably a net positive for the industry. The worst case scenario is some major set of accusations and wrongdoing and severe punishment which would be a confidence hit in the short term but in the longer term would clear space for better actors to arise in the middle would be some slap on the wrist. This would be bullish both for not having been worse as well as for most likely articulating what regulators expect at a foreign exchanges when it comes to preventing access by us citizens.

He sends sixty two unanswered text messages including photos that get more explicit in nature and on august ninth he and the reporter went chicago. It wrigley field. I think i just saw your so beautiful. The reporter told espn she felt panicky and she hid to void him a day. Later porter's message. I'll be in la this weekend at the best hotel in america. Can you meet me there. That's evening porter texted. You're missing out next. He sent more than a dozen photos of hotel grounds food and a bathtub. Then a shot of pants with the bulge on a bed finally texted a shot of a fully naked and erect penis. And it really at this point in time becomes a point where it is crossing the line. She told espn. She got help composing her first reply to porter in weeks. This is extremely inappropriate very offensive and getting out of line. Could you please stop sending offensive photos or message. Puerto responded oh. I'm sorry i will stop. I really apologize. Please let me know if you ever need anything workwise and we need to reiterate that this reporter is not from the united states. She doesn't have a grasp of the english language and she needed to rely on an interpreter and players from her home country to really understand what was going on here. Yes she did. And she was in a position where jared porter all the power. He could have helped that journalists he could have given her all the scoops all the news. He could have made her into a big name. A big deal. She can't help him in any way at all minus obviously physically sexually. He's attracted to her. She told the espn that until then she thought it would be awkward to say no to porter's questions and that if she had a better understanding of the language and culture she would have realized sooner what was going on. It was very clear. The wishy initially handled this not responding that she didn't want to offend him. And i've seen people say why didn't she shut it down. Why didn't she yell at him. It is a very different culture that she is coming from is not a woman's place to do that kind of thing. And certainly not the place of a woman who deems to be less important in this hierarchy of baseball then jared porter was and just to be clear. She says she initially did not file a formal complaint or come forward with her story publicly because of fear of it negatively affecting her career and also retribution in her home country. Certainly and i think when you factor in all the things that came with it made a lot of sense for her to not come forward for her to continue to put her head down and smile and act like maybe this would go away. His first step jared porter when confronted was to say that he had never sent these photos and that he had nothing to say an only when he was confronted with the evidence we know. Now did he backtrack and admit at least that he had something to do with this. And then he later said that the explicit ones. We're not him that they were like jokes. Stock images and it's at so many levels the deceit from a man who was billed as this high character integrity guy who we saw fly through baseball's hierarchy in the same winter or kim amd took thirty years to get a gm job. Jared porter was not affected. Not aware did not care at all and part of the reason this woman told. Espn she came. Forward is because she didn't think that jared porter was truly sorry. The cubs claim that they didn't know anything about what happened because she didn't file a formal complaint but the espn report says that she was in touch with a cubs employee. Who told her to quote use it to her advantage. Yes and the cubs statement does say that this story came to their attention right when it came out and had they been notified quote. We would have taken swift action as the alleged behavior is in violation of our code of conduct and you wonder kavita that so many organizations were the first step is to deny until there is actual proof and hearing what some of her colleagues told her to use to her. Advantage is part of the problem in this. Is that on some level. She felt like jared. Puerto not only wasn't sorry you didn't regret anything. And he didn't realize that i'd taken any kind of toll on her at work or personally or otherwise and then male colleagues of her own sought is like a chip to use like. Hey you've got this chip with this guy who was high up front offices. Why not use that. And that is really indicative of the culture and of the sterban pattern in baseball and that is why nobody believes. This is an isolated incident. This is just another case in a sport that is.

"mets" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"We got the news about one o'clock today that yet. Another person untied to the Houston Astros. Cheating scandal has lost his job. Carlos Beltran recently hired by the mets to be there next managers out of his job before even having having a meeting in spring training. That's because he was named in. The Commissioner's report released the other day for his role in the Astros signed stealing scandal of two thousand seventeen eighteen Beltran and the mets both indicated. Today that this was a mutual decision but I suspect that a week or two weeks ago even those with knowledge of the science dealing details from two thousand in seventeen believed that Houston. GM Jeff Luneau Astros Manager Aj. Hinch Red Sox manager Alex Cora now Carlos Beltran would still have have their jobs and they're all out and that's where we are probably Vera covers baseball for ESPN. She knows. Carlos Beltran now score very well Marley. How you doing? It's been a crazy week. I think crazy is a very good adjective buster special like no that totally can managers. Were highly touted. I don't have a job today. Unbelievable let's let's start with Carlos Beltran. That is the the most recent news. I'm going to also ask you about Alex. Corsie is we go forward but but I about Carlos. I thought that when the mets didn't put out a statement immediately on Monday evening after the Commissioner's report came out out the fact that the mets didn't come out right away and have a statement from Jeff Wilpon from Brody Bandwagon. And saying this is our guy. Carlos Beltran is our manager edger. And that's what we're going to do moving forward because what was in the report involved the Houston Astros in two thousand seventeen. The commissioners made it clear that Carlos this is not going to be disciplined for his role in that because he's the player at that time but the fact that they didn't put out that statement on Monday and then dragged out into Tuesday day and then Wednesday. You could see that the mets they were weighing their options and just as someone who covered the mets back in one thousand nine hundred seven having worked in New York market for a long. I've never seen an organization that is more affected by public opinion than the mets. And I thought Yep that he at some point. They're going to let him go. What what did you think absolutely couldn't agree more with what you said? And not only that the fact that you know one of the reasons why they hired Beltran was because it was excellent in publicity. Ns S you. And I know spending so much time covering baseball in New York. The mets have failed many times on the PR department. And this would hiring hiring Carlos Beltran. They bought themselves all this goodwill right the return of the prodigal son with everything that had happened when he had left the comments of the Wilpon when he used to be a you know. Oh a mets player. Everything gets kind of water under the bridge. There's just you know one of the most impressive press conferences that I have attended you know at city field so it was just as big. Pr Moment and then all of a sudden I agree with you. They got swayed by public opinion. And one of the things that Carlos Beltran and as you mentioned before which is important you state. The aren't family our friends of mine. So my activity here Sometimes can be a little bit swayed but the point is that can handle the media. He's been you know he was a player for twenty a years worked on a capacity assistant with the Yankees and so on and I feel that this was in my opinion. Definitely a wilpon decision muster. Oh No no question. The way this was described I think Carlos but at a statement they talked about a mutual decision. No way like this like Carlos I think absolutely was set on going forward but they say as all the conversation was taking place in New York to columnists were were taking aim at this and they are asking questions. Well what. What did the mets ask Carlos about? After the first athletic story came out about the signed stealing. And how would the mets feel about Carlos not having credibility with the media and it became a real hot topic on talk radio here and one stat ball started rolling downhill and then Aj hinch losses job and Jeff Luna lost his job and Alex. Cora lost his job. There was no way the mets leadership was going to stand in the way of that momentum and stand up and say in the past it was in the past which by the way is what Brody van wagon and said back in November. He kind of indicated like well. That's not really a mets problem. That's an astros throws problem. But their their their words their tone definitely changes week the only aspect that I can you know Ah have gone in this process. One of the things were Carlos may have had some input. Devil's advocate here. Is that one of the things that Carlos Beltran they'll turn and and you and I have covered a great deal of is the fact that he does not like off. The field distractions buster. And I think at that is the part or they'll go. You know what this is the right decision. He is one of those guys that likes to talk baseball. I remember what it was like the whole scandal with Iran in the Yankees Yankees Carlos Beltran was part of the Yankees Organization at the time as a player and he refused to engage in sort of those conversations so there is an aspect of how much he doesn't like the distraction and then that part certainly you know he could have had any input on but I I agree with you. This isn't you know the mets founded selves in an island. Having to make a decision and they got swayed by Jim Crane did and obviously you know what the Boston Red Sox decided to do. After the imposition of a penalty suspension to Alex Score. So let's breakdown go by the way. Yeah exactly breakout some other elements of this What do you think the mets miss out on? Not Having Carlos Beltran altron their manager. Carlos Beltran is an excellent leader. And I think that's one of those things that has been a little bit missing the New York Mets Organization. He drives arrives you. He's one of those guys that inspires others other players and he also galvanizes clubhouses right. He he was the player for the day when he was with the Yankees. Hanky along with Andrew Miller he always has always been so well spoken and he crosses that kind of you know barrier quote Unquote Latino players. And you know the players that are not Latino and I felt that he could galvanize that clubhouse very very well and I think that's the number one thing that the mets are going to miss out on and this is a man who obviously has left the game for a long time doesn't need the money this isn't right and it was honestly doing this job because he truly wanted to make an impact in organization that really has lost their way a little bit in the last couple of years so I think it's a huge loss. So they mess. We're GONNA do not have Carlos Beltran but I do understand the decision. In terms of the whole quote in quote distractions off the field now. I'm not as close to him as you are if I was I think and he asked me my advice in this situation. Now that he's lost the job of the mets would. I think I would tell them was Carlos you need to hold a press conference in New York have rent out a room at a hotel or restaurant invite all the reporters to come and basically say I'm here to answer all your questions about what went on with Houston with me back in two thousand seventeen eighteen. Because I think that's the only way he's going to be able to manage at some point down the road and all I heard for the last decade is this is someone who absolutely terrific manager in the future future. He has to be great at this job but I think that would allow him to and let's face he's never going to move past this. It's already cost him his job but at least to get past those questions would be to tell the writers. I'm here to answer every question you people have about what take place and I'll tell you exactly really what happened. What do you think about that? I don't know that I mean I. I would love for that to happen. Let's be very clear. I don't know that the benefit for for Carlos it's worth it If if one of the drugs and he said this in an introductory press conference specifically said I didn't want any job I don't need need a job. I wanted to stay in New York. Carl has very very young children. They're all right like very yes. Three kids are all very young during school in your this is where they reside the kids go to school will. So there's only two baseball jobs that he would apply for the New York Yankees and the New York mets and he's not gonna get either one of those jobs so I just don't think that at this point point it benefits the family anyway and I do think that Carlos will do what's best for his family especially having young children Buster and I know you know that you had young children at one time. It's the point that these kids have to see the paper tomorrow. They're going to be in school. They're old enough. You know and I feel like it would rehash a lot of topics. Is that right now. Maybe people are going to move on you know and and just gone from that now if he later on when the kids are a little bit older he wants to do something else. Maybe at that point but but at this point I just don't see the benefit. Yeah I mean I would counter that by saying I remember what about the wondering to Rehab how he basically he put a statement saying look. I'm not only doing it for me. I'm doing it for the for my for my kids in other words I'm going to be show my kids that I'm going to be open and honest and I'm going to talk about you know what my situation relation is and I feel like that. That would be a good thing for calls just to be able to turn this page because otherwise you know every time he would show up at a ballpark as visitor. IRV Fiore was hanging out on a entered events. Someplace you know knuckleheads like me would come up and we'd all be asking okay. What really happened back in two thousand seventeen gene right? It's it's a very good counter counterpoint. Just think that at this point The Beltran family would be better served and also oh Carlos we there's been a lot of talk online and ever since the station happen of you know crossing the thin Blue Line right. What players are opening some sort of Pandora's box walks by having this conversation? I think that Carlos has that guy to who doesn't quote unquote throw other players. I don't I'm saying that that's not you know not that I agree with with that or not. I actually believe that whistle blowers are important and I admired my fires for standing up and doing what he did. So let's just be very clear but I just don't see Carlos being that guy guy he's always been very reserved very pro player right like a pro player and I think a press conference like that addressing detail of the Astros you know obvious assigned feeling investigation would not go. You know. Go against who. He is right the other day when this began to gather momentum and he began to look like the the mets would would let Beltran go. I saw some tweets out from some reporters terrific reporters saying this would be the most seen thing ever the Carlos Beltran will be let go is managed manager before he actually managed the game and I wrote a column on. ESPN DOT com today. where I I wrote that I feel like the mets actually got very lucky with the way this played out and to make this clear in knowing that the mets had made the decision that they were GonNa let Carlos go to me?.
"mets" Discussed on The Lead
"Sit Him after owning the team since the eighties and holding onto ownership through the medoff disaster nearly a decade ago. Why are the wilpon looking to sell now? One of the reasons the sale is happening now so as it is Is that Fred. Wilpon just turned eighty three At the end of November and so he's trying to secure the long term future of the New York. Mets and there has been some disagreement over. Exactly what would happen Win A wilpon passes away and and how it would be handed down through his family. A Jeff Wilpon. His his son has taken on an outsized role with the team as chief operating officer. He's been really the public face of ownership for a few years now. Fred Wilpon has not spoken publicly in quite a few years. We'll so tell me about Steven Cohen. The guy in line to buy the mets and perhaps the guy in line to be the met Savior sports so I played soccer. I played basketball in high school team. And and just played golf. And that's what you did is a hedge fund manager He was born in great neck. New York grew up a mets fan out. A Long Island started his own Hedge Fund and then in two thousand and thirteen his company was indicted for insider trading breaking news to bring you now the. Sec Is Doing Hedge Fund advisor. Steve a Cohen for failing to supervise Q.. Interesting your employees and prevent them from alleged insider trading. I'm very big news. This is the first formal charges of the SEC. Against Steven Been Cohen. Understand the rules on trading inside information. It's very familiar with rule. Ten B Five Dash One No no not that. You'd have to explain it to me. The firm ended up agreeing to pay a one point. Eight billion dollar fine. His net worth is estimated at more than nine billion dollars by Bloomberg which would make him the wealthiest majority owner in Major League Baseball. If this all comes to pass He's a noted art collector who spent nine figures on multiple pieces of art a singularly including spending more than one hundred and forty million dollars on an Alberto Giacometti Committee sculpture. which is more money than the mets? For instance have ever paid on a single player contract. That was one of my favorite details from your piece and not only. Is that more money than the mets have ever spat aww individual players contract. That's like fifteen million dollars less than their entire payroll. What's last year? So he's spent one hundred fifty. I five million dollars on a Pablo Picasso Painting Picasso mets have only run a payroll north of one hundred and fifty. Five million dollars This past season. That was the first time they ever did that. So if Steve Cohen does come in he would be the richest owner in baseball. And he's known to be a pretty serious mets fan. What impact? What do you think he can have on the organization? We don't know for sure but I think there have been people who have compared it to Steve Balmer coming in and running the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA. But most of all punked saying hello as clippers. The Paul E. Coli come on the thought that a lifelong fan like this will spend considerably more on the product. Baseball baseball does not have a salary cap. The way other sports do so he could spend as much as he wants to on the on field product. There's also He's also guy who through his work. As a hedge twin manager has embraced the analytical side of things and the mets have been very slow in terms of kind of changing with the current times in baseball and embracing analytics analytics. So the thought is With Cohen on board as the majority owner. They'd be a bit swifter in that area as well. We don't know what it'd be like on a day-to-day basis as if he would have the same kind of imprint. On the day to day activity that the wilpon like to have. But that's that's something kind of have to wait and see until he actually becomes the owner to know another another open. Question is what the mets will do with general manager. Brodie van Wagon He. He was a controversial higher. You know he had never been a GM. He was an agent before or he had represented some mets players. Do you have a sense of whether the sale will be in that brody loses. His job is kind of the same dynamic where your general manager working for the owner. Who did not hire you? That you've got to win him over you're not his guy and so I think bandwagon face that same dynamic down the line with Cohen. How how of mets fans reacted to the possibility of a change in ownership as if they won the world series Steve Cohen? Our Savior Steve Cohen. Colwyn we bow to the Steve Cohen. We love you. You have swooped down to save us. From the Wilpon 's goodwill plans had been the boogeyman in this franchise for so long everything that was wrong with the mets was attributed to the wilpon. That you you know if presented with the option of the Wilpon the known entity on one hand versus whatever's behind the curtain. Whatever is behind door number one mets fans would choose the unknown Insead Cohen so the fact that Cohen is as wealthy as he is I think exacerbates the excitement for stands stand the thought that he would be willing to send financially with the Wilpon. Haven't been able to recently. There's light at the end of the tunnel for mets fans. I think this is probably more exciting for them than any single single free agent would have been in this off season right no more numerous brown paper bags at city. You never know for sure. Well Tim thank. Thank you so much for joining us at. It'll be exciting to see what happens going forward anytime. Thank you for having me a step. The Band Green the rain. Your brain your life here. Here are some other stories. We're following at lead Major League Baseball. Commissioner Rob Manfred announced that all thirty. MLB teams will expand protective netting.

"ESPN RADIO ESPN news. Let's go back to the calls before we get you know talking Thursday night football Seattle Oh. La Talk in New York mets going in a different direction talk. MLB plans to some degree because my Yankees play tomorrow night they open their best of five against the Minnesota twins who led like the major leagues in homeless with three hundred seven seven and a record the Yankees were at three hundred and six the bronx bombers should be able to handle their business. They usually do against Minnesota. My only concern would be the Houston Houston Astros at the antibody described anybody else to beat the Yankees. Nobody not the dodgers not the braves that the nationals nobody absolutely nobody not to raise. Nobody I think the only thirteen standing in the way of a twenty twenty eighth world series the Reese Championship for the greatest franchise in the history of sports is Houston Astros that is what I believe go back to the phones. Josh Alava Stephen was up. Oh Steven naismith yours so so wrong about buck showalter and the mets I think you are Solich. in my opinion is one of the greatest managers of the generation like I don't them for like you're giving them enough credit for what he did for the Yankees in in the nineties way different Zona in two thousand and if you remember correctly from two twenty twelve to 2016 Orioles had the best record in the MLB that's in the same division with the New York Yankees Tampa Bay rays in the Boston red sauce when Obama yeah I'm aware of I'm aware of what he did one year in Baltimore. I'm aware that from twenty to twenty six teams when the mid mid way from the restaurants when it will talk show wall oh to was going to be great as managers who buck showalter is he's major league baseball is version of Larry Brown Larry Brown an NBA used to have the nickname Mr fixit member that wherever he went to team got better and he went to the hall of fame because of it and I get that but ultimately had to go to Detroit Lion I'm sorry to Detroit Pistons and coach Chauncey billips Tae Sean Prints Rip Hamilton Rashid and Ben Wallace and those boys mom and Lindsey Hunter and others to a title before he was recognized for the greatness that he had repeatedly put on display spanning decades because he was devoid of that chip and all. I'm saying to you when you look at Buck showalter and I'll tell you you that this man has not been synonymous with championships. Okay I mean. I don't think that's farfetched. I don't think that's beyond the Pale. Do you have to look at what the oils like I in the most recently arranged it for a boxer also never around him with good pitcher and I do not have to look at any of that. All I have to look at that the reason I don't have to look at that because I never said he was a bad manager. I never said he wasn't a good manager. I said my preference for the mets. Situation would be Joe Giradi him already so what he did for the Yankees. I know you WANNA. I know you wanNA title with the Yankees. I know that much I agree with the most talented group to to get that talent to walk show Walker I short you will become the mets savior. Okay letting you know all right. We'll become that met save you listen. I'm looking at bug show Walter and when you look at book show Walter and his resume he lost in L. D. S. were the Yankees one time in four years. He went to the postseason as a wants. He Lost Okay all right in three years with Arizona he went to the postseason he lost and and and how many years in in Texas for years nothing in Baltimore from two thousand and ten to two thousand eighteen he went to the postseason three times okay one of those times he went to the I got it understand. The resume is is solid and I know his baseball knowledge is impeccable. I'm not questioning it. I just have a personal preference and he ain't it appreciate your call. Let's go to joe you lava Stephen Subject. Hey Steven A. this wanted to say thank you for answering call and I know this is going to be a little off topic but I just wanted to get your opinion it in about the saint like or you think the saints season could possibly and the saints Fan I can win at all. I think the saints win all if drew breeze comes back healthy and their defense continues to play the way they played against Dallas last week because he I think I think you can rely on Michael Thomas in Albuquerque erotic. They're reliable commodities. I think the question is drew. Brees can't be unhealthy and that defense has to continue to deliver you hold on for thirty five yards rushing and neutralize their passing game of the process. You got to be able to do that again. Some of the other teams in the National Football League particularly really you have to do it against an Rogers and Green Bay you might have to do it against Matt Ryan and Atlanta because even though they're they're auto wanted three star and it's not impressive. We can't tonight effect that Julio Jones Muhammadu Calvin really all the same skoll with Matt Ryan can't ignore Seattle can't ignore the the Los Angeles Rams because their offense can't ignore Carson wentz and Philadelphia Eagles can't ignore the Detroit lions right now the way they're looking and the way Matt Patricia has them a player can ignore any of it. Even you think they can't learn what Teddy Bridgewater EPA help no not championship they can win games that gets you to the postseason championship the ship hell no Pecan. We're told he bridgewater. I just told you I don't believe it. I think he's a relatively pedestrian quarterback. He's a game. He's a game manager. I don't think he's a difference maker. I don't think he's a scrub but I don't think he's a difference maker. You need drew brees. You need to greatness drew brees to deliver your championship championship and you better get that back because if you don't get that back you ain't going nowhere very have a nice day. Let's go to Melvin. You'll obviously there was a melon. Hey Steven Nice first time caller it'd be credited show on an JC say what's up okay and also I wanNA honest. I got a question about the mess but I wanted to but you boy ten thirty. It's thirty and we'll production the system that'd be so nice finally to talk to Iran altered and this man you should keep Mickey callaway. Excuse me I keep saying Mickey should've had a another year now now no he didn't knock your socks off. I mean the first half of the season was awful. The second half they went on a run and they were the most exciting team in baseball about three weeks then after that they tailed off to the phillies international's number three he wasn't brought van wagon this choice he arrived the year before the GM and executive vp and I think we're in van wagon and has every right to one on his own guy. Particularly when you consider the quality of managers that are available in the open market right now I think because understand stand being that Diaz some trash familiar with tries and we had we want to work forty six twenty six off at all stop right there and we will play right injuries yeah so I mean baseball's off man by two years then not tender. There's nothing that Mickey Calloway did the any of those manages all right Joe Madden Joe Girardi Book Show Walters. There's nothing that Mickey Calloway did those guys can't do in his replay as his replacement right right or a school man so yeah. She's taking my call man. Thank you very much damage. ACS It all right no problem Jordan and you lava Stephen. They go ahead. Hey what's what's up man I just wanted to talk about the game tonight will Wilson and Golf Seattle and the Rams you know Wilson's coming in with second consecutive wins on Thursday night football football he's six and eight against the Rancho with three straight losses he's GonNa be at home and especially when I think we're GOP only putting up two touchdowns last week against against the Tampa Bay buccaneers what three interceptions girl you only have what I think sixteen yards with five Kerry's It's GonNa be a good one but I don't think the rams are GonNa come through where victory tonight. I don't think so either I think the weather combined with that crowd on the road the noise factor etc.. I think it's GonNa compromise their passing game. It's GonNa Lean on running football more and I don't think Todd Gurley is one hundred percent healthy to run particularly against that defense in that weather. I'm going with the SEAHAWKS wall I agree. I agree all right appreciate the call. Thank you so much it eight say. Espn you listen live to Steven A. ESPN radio ESPN news also let's go to jeff you'll subjects. Hey Steven first time longtime curious. What are your thoughts on Menchu is he? The the real deal and through the Jaguars have a chance of winning sufficient. Well first of all anybody looks. Anybody looks like the real deal when you succeed in Blake Bortles so let's put that in it's proper perspective. We can't ignore north. That's number one number. Two Nick foles got there. He's the one you acquired a free agency and brought him a Philadelphia but he got hurt in the first half of game one number three you look at their defense. Jacksonville has equality defense. It's a damn shame that all that's been going on. There have been going on particularly the League Jalen Ramsey wanting to be traded because he can't stand Tom Coughlin and you got Chad con the owner for the Jacksonville Jaguars saying we're not GONNA continue consider trading Jalen Ramsey because we're a better team with them which is perfectly logical why he would take that position and why he would make that decision but it doesn't gate the fact that all it's going to do is make life uncomfortable uncomfortable because Jalen Ramsey is not gonna sit idly by and to live in his in his situation and being a not wanting to be there. What have you so that's not a good look either so that could be the potential for more friction there last night at least when you get back to you you know what let's face reality we appreciate the fact that he played good against Tennessee on Thursday night? We got that and he filled in admirably wants. Nick foles went down. We get that but we really really be an honest reason why we're waving about Menchu because of his he do is mustache and his wardrobe. That's right. I said it if it was if he just looked like some regulo cookie could've quarterback. Would you be raving about him like this. We were GONNA win. I'm just saying I don't know if you'd be raving about him like this. You'd be talking about Jacksonville and giving him credit fulfilling in well but he wouldn't be this rave that he is if it wasn't for the way he looked and the way he dressed and y'all all know it. That's why they got some special date over the next two games where where they're selling stuff where you got people who can dress like in with fake mustaches look like in with their here do in all of this other stuff because he's a fee non right now so basically you know what he's getting his fifteen seconds of fame as we speak but it'd be he really knocking your socks off yet. No and I'm not saying he can't I like them. I like what I've seen thus far but as the season progresses more films coming out on him. Let's see how he does and let's see how he responds to the adversity that will inevitably be thrown in his direction but right now all you gotta do a mustache and wardrobe. If it wasn't for that you will be talking about him like this. You're right take it easy. GotTa run it at eight say. ESPN is editing seven two the three seven seven six. You Ain't bring up none of that stuff to talk about Patrick Mahomes you know why because that brothers on another level that's not what anybody's talking about. What meant you Gardner Minch you? His Daddy's an audience by the way it was a beautiful beautiful pitcher daddy they're pumping his fist and inspiring his son beautiful look love seeing that his pops is they're giving them more love and support in the world and misuse done nothing to deserve any kind of criticism and I'm not trying to give it to him. He doesn't deserve any criticism and I'm not trying to give it to all. I'm saying is is that the difference between him doing being a backup who's playing well and might becoming a starter or being apartments you or the face of men's shoe. Mania mania is his wardrobe his mustache and is he ado data's it. He looks like a Harley Davidson motorcycle rider playing quarterback in the national football or something close to that that's it puts things in it's proper perspective it at eight say. ESPN editing seven two three seven seven goes back to your calls and more than a minute.

And again, all that went on yesterday and last night we had our college football seminar here in Connecticut. I'm over by the airport, the share it and there we gotta meet the sort of cocktail hour going on and I'm driving back home last night in all. I'm seeing all I'm hearing on the radio when I get home and check Twitter on seeing on my time is people just laughing and enjoying a good bit of fun at the Mets expense last night.

"And boy, if you're the NATs and you wanted to play better, I have the perfect opponent for you. Last night me the Mets meet the Mets Steph pride for factory of sadness, and a lot of runs that will get to in a little bit. They got the perfect rebound there. You're coming off a bad almost break-up gotten fight with your significant other. If you're the Mets are fear the nationals, excuse me, and you had the perfect rebound night in going out and hanging with the Mets and remembering, oh, wait a minute. We know what true turmoil really looks like now for price Harper in all. This is always the part of it on the pyre side. You see, guys go through it all the time where your name is these subject around the trade deadline, so much so that you wonder what it's like on the back end for a player to know I was so openly shop. We dealt with this. I felt like every year with Kevin love and the Cleveland Cavaliers where they somehow had to walk. Back in after the NBA's trade deadline and look at Kevin like, so you understand, like we were just saying all that stuff. We didn't really mean it. Bryce Harper got a little more of a direct answer from his team in his organization about what was going on for managed yesterday. Early this morning man known that I was gonna say, I was going to be here and you know, it's, I took that as I have great relationship, and you know Raza's one of the best teams and all the baseball. And I think you'd be straightforward with me if I was on the block or anything like that. So I think that just goes to show how good our relationship is, and it's nice to which is interesting and runs counter to what we've heard about a lot of the things going on behind the scenes in that nationals locker, where it hasn't always sounded like Bryce Harper in the organization necessarily been on the same page with some things player, acquisition wise and just in general that locker room hasn't sounded like it's the most inviting place at times this season, but to have something like this, be on the same page with you. Star players usually pretty paramount to what you're going to look for success wise. Now, as far as moves that were actually made in the tread dine line, I know most of you are sitting here and thinking, man, I wonder what the Pittsburgh Pirates are going to do really excited. See with the third place team in the NFL central can muster up at the trade deadline and they actually made the one move. I think that would qualify as a splash move in this deadline, which is bringing in pitcher Chris Archer to the full. Now, Chris Archer been down the Tampa Bay rays and hadn't been quite what he was a few years ago. The past three seasons in ERA just over four including four point. Three one in seventeen starts in twenty eighteen, but really for him. It's the contract he's under team control through twenty twenty one with a total salary of twenty seven point six, seven million from two thousand nineteen to two thousand twenty one. The twenty twenty and twenty twenty one seasons are both team options and based on what we've seen pitcher signed for lately. Getting this kind of cost control for a guy. You still believe could be a quality starter is an important piece of this puzzle. And so now for the pirates who in turn, gave up ost prospect, Austin meadows, Tyler glass down a third player to be named. You're giving up some short term to do what you believe you can do, which is compete right now surprising for a team that gave up really the face of their franchise this last year, Andrew mccutchen and sent him on the way and in a place like that in a smaller market. And I understand Pittsburgh might cry foul in that based on the level of fandom that you see displayed and passion in that town. But in a place like that. And especially in the major leagues where you're not used to seeing a bunch of size stars tied together, the way you'd see in New York and Boston, and some of these bigger markets for baseball, losing a guy like Andrew mccutchen was a major signal to a lot of us that you're starting to kind of turn this over and get back to a place where you're going.
"mets" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Baseball
"Batting average homers RBI steals points. Leagues are added up differently. Carpenters always been a big Walker. We've Netto door and Corey Dickerson or not. I mean, Dickerson is walking less than once per week. This season and is k. rate is cut in half. So how do you value when you're looking at slumping players? Do you look at the walks as a matter that much to you or you just like basically on track record, like is ever carpenter. It's interesting because like obviously, one of the key stats you look for in terms of hitters is so walk to strikeout ratio. And you know if you're looking at people who are not rostered and fifty percents leagues, there's five guys out there right now who I'm gonna read an article on, you know, you really need to be paying attention and they happen to be fairly hot of late Ben zobrist Jesse Winker Jason Heyward Denard span max coupla. These five guys who just the walk to strikeout ratio is really aren't good in the top twenty in the league, and they're under own because of that. They're going to have more value in points leagues. So you know, I'm not scared away by guy like Capela who's bet in like, you know, to twenty for the season, there's bound to be some sort of improvement in points leagues because of the ratio. And you know if you're dealing the runner league obviously than the batting average matters and you've got to get a look at it differently than a big fan of Jesse. Whe- inkers for a few seasons now he plays fantasy football. Did you know? I did not know. You know, he was hitting the eighth month which is going. Yeah. The reason I was interested is because he was a Walker, he knew what pitch swing out in the minor leagues you could tell. And I thought there was enough power for like twenty home runs, and I still think there is right away. But yeah, what's my Winker? Oh, so it was at the futures game a couple years ago and Winker grabbed me. I was interviewing somebody else. Maybe it was Josh bell and weaker grabbed me and said, the Buffalo Bills are going to win the Super Bowl this year. And I'm like, yeah, I don't think so. And I knew it was. And then we started talking fantasy football, and then we forgot that it was a baseball game. Anyway. I like Winker he's he's from buffalo. Let's get to some other stuff here. All right, let's get to your team because that's a mess. And there actually is fantasy relevant news here. They traded the Mets traded URI's familiar to Oakland over the weekend for pretty much nothing and familiar. Got the win on Sunday, but it's clearly not the closer Blake trial and having a fantastic season. One would presume Robert Salman. We'll be the savior of Mets games with few they have. But the big story to me other than the function is you want assessment as I think it's fifty. Fifty doesn't even play another game this season and his long term outlook for dynasty purposes. I think is clouded here because of the hill problems. Our colleagues defined your bell wrote an excellent story DSP. And about this. What's your take here? I'm kind of being serious now with s but as I mean, obviously we could go on for hours about the mess. That is this team has franchise assessment as like on this. Not sure he's gonna play. No. And this is always been since he's been with the Mets anyway. This is kind of been the thing. You know, he shows up for a little bit and then he's on the DL or or he's not on the deal, which is even worse is that you know, gets banged up. He's that day to day and you know the front office communication with the dugout clearly is not there. It hadn't been there. I mean, when they're when I was mister met running around on the field, I knew more about team than Bobby Valentine didn't simply because I was listening back of house when they weren't talking to him. I would just hearing or with the some of the guys offing, but it's just the communication lines are are not there if Calloway didn't even know that this was was hurt. There's issues here..
