"Let's get Sarge Junior. I mean it just like, you know, signing after signing a kid bet with money in Major League baseball, currency and baseball is over is measured in prospects. You could make him a steak. You could make a mistake like it for the Angels. He can't make four You make four steaks and your dad? I mean, you're You're toast at that point, because they got trout. Awesome, man. Best player in baseball. They got Randal Grichuk right before him who is pretty decent player. I mean, he could have been in your outfield. But I don't have any room for him anymore. We gotta trade him. And then they traded two really good pictures when they got here in a number of years ago from the Ah, the Diamondbacks. It was ah, Skaggs, and it was the help me out. Who's a lefty for the nationals? That was ah, their World Series team that we're good. He has a righty. Hard foreign writing to pitch you know is Lefty. It was it was it was it was a lefty. I was thinking you were talking about Daniel Hudson. No, no, no. No. Now, guys and let's slider guy throws about 95 Hey, was really good, too, because they traded him to the remember He was with the Diamondbacks. And then he went to the Ah He went to the nationals. It's killing me that I can't think of any way. Like you, like a way of those two guys pretty good now. Unfortunately, the tragedy happened to scag can never foresee that, Corbin. Thank you Timbers. Patrick Corbin. The thing I mean, you had some guys And they're just like, well, let's get let's get Mohr big name guys in here. It was okay for a couple of years, but that's the type of short sighted this. They killed the Yankees for awhile and then the Yankees. You look at the Yankees right now, and they still got money to spend. But you look at all the guys they had come into. The system is like, Oh, damn. They got a bunch of do their pitching, but they got some hitting that's coming up through their system. And that's the cruise. Right? That's what the Angels don't have. Many had trout And they got this Adele guy. We'll see how he's gonna end up being washed. Looks like he might actually be a pretty decent prospect, But I'm sorry. You just mean you could have a mistake. You can have maybe two. But you start having 34 mistakes like consecutively and then you pile them up on the same team. Post and that's where they've been. And it's sad like I still watch for it all the time because I'm an Angels fan, but I get it where all the people out there like. Damn, it sure would be nice to see him. You know, in the playoffs, the think about that generations, maybe generation's best player certain in the last 10 years best player in the game. Three games. The man with the playoffs three games, 123 barbecue or 23 barbecue or 13 barbecue or whatever, they barbecued him and it was over, and that was it. And that's the last you've seen trout in the play offs like I don't I don't need him to be the modern day. Ernie Banks and Mookie Betts is starring in these playoffs once again as you saw him do in 2018 with the Red Sox, and now people are talking about Mookie Betts. As the best player in the game, forgetting about Mike Trout because out of sight out of mind, here's what money has changed in Major league baseball money. Now you can buy your way out of a problem. You could have a Pablo Sandoval and go. This ain't working. And if your Boston you could just say, Hey, man, go kick rocks and we'll pay for your salary. You can paper over mistakes, but you cannot now just overwhelm with money. As you used to be able to, as the Yankees did, and they tried to do And as you mentioned Tom, they just don't do it anymore. And now they've switched even though they do have money. They spend it on Stanton, but they now switch to have in our prospects. It is amazing how quickly that has changed..

"And two thirds. I look, I think Glass now is the only guy on this staff that is gone over six. I want to say I want to say smell may have gone exactly 61 game but usually for smell in Morton, who are pretty damn good pitchers are five and two thirds five and a third five. And glass. Now is the only guy that a couple of times I think he went 71 time. He might have gone eight minutes six. But he could go for a third with the best of him as well. So I mean, they're just kind of putting this thing together. Yeah, without the budget of the other teams, and I don't know if I can compare it to anybody else in any other sport. I mean, I guess you can compare it to the AIDS. But the A's haven't done what the Rays have done. They haven't made it to the world. To the world Siri's, and they certainly haven't done it in a division that features the Red Sox and the Yankees, two of the big titans of the off the wall, and I was trying to think of other sports and again. I don't know if there's any analogy there because everyone kind of close because because of the cap and the floors and stuff like that. But it's pretty amazing to think with this team has been able to do it really is. It's a unique situation. Just because baseball's salary situation is unique. They're the only North American sport that is enough salary cap. You know what we think of as a true salary caps so you can have this sort of on the surface, David and Goliath matchup. You just don't get this in the other sports because the salary caps and free agency Ah! In baseball, basketball and football and hockey. It's sort of equalizes and the playing field so you just don't get this kind of of seemingly obvious disparity. The race payroll is a little bit over $28 million And Charlie Morton is their highest paid player. And their payroll is the third lowest in basement Orioles and the Pirates bringing up the rear the obvious ones. And look at it. Look at all the teams that are around him. I mean the A's. They're probably down there somewhere. I would have married her the A's or 25th. Okay, I'm looking at the list words as Baltimore's 30th Pittsburgh's 29th Marlon's 28th Tampa 27 in the morning. They were Kansas City, 26 8 25. I would say the ayes have have done it. A cz. Well, asshole, most anybody without the ring as far as just regular season consistency, consistently not having a lot of money. They've done a really good job. I mean, I think You know, it's interesting that the Tampa is here in this because one they don't have any stars, and they were kind of the leader on the cutting edge of all the Advanced Analytics and and introducing the opener concept, and, you know, they kind of pushed the analytic enveloped the most. And it's and now here they are with, you know, relative, no name team that nobody on the street of any major city in America could name And there in the World Series, and they may win it. You know, they keep playing the way they played last in the game, too. I mean, I think the interesting thing going into tonight guys is is Brandon Lau, who was hitting 107 going into the last game. Did he find something because he had two opposite field home runs. And if he found something that gives them another electric bat to go with Ah Ros Arena, And then tonight, the big decision I think is Robert's discussed. Is he going to go with Barnes again? As the catcher? He liked what he got from Barnes in the wind and Game one despite the fact He went Oh for four and struck out twice. And he's thinking about starting Barnes so Well, it should be an interesting game three because I think the winner tonight probably goes on and wins this series. I think if you look at the numbers, the game three winner and even Siri's Goes on and wins at a very high, cliff. Well, I think when you look at it, I mean, look, you can spend and it helps. But you got to spend wisely. I mean, look what the angels have done. The Angels have spent like already Marino's spent But he mean let's go out. Get pools. Clank. Let's get Josh Hamilton Clank. Let's get C J. Wilson kind of a clank, but not getting great. What about the guy that just got? Let's get Upton Plank that wind rent owns a great player, and Brenda is fantastic. You know what happened there they have a system has dried up. They haven't produced any any real talent in the farm system coming out of there for a while. And that's very Tommy's An Angels fan. Let him get this out. Dog doesn't let me get this out of the system, you know. Would you do it, Tom? Go ahead. Man were here for you're going to throw it to the playoffs. What? One time we re do You remember how they did? Absolutely not. You don't think they got swept by the Royals swept by the Royals? That was? Yeah. I mean, why would you remember is like a blink. That was over. It was like, Well, how Dan, That was over. Yeah, I was over three months. Three game sweep. But yeah, it's great to spend. But you can't just I mean the the pool hall signing. I mean, that just that set him back so far and then naked that they did say, Well, let's go get Hamilton. Let's get Sarge Junior. I mean it just like, you know, signing after signing a kid bet with money in Major League baseball, currency and baseball is over is measured.
What's Algolia up to?
"Yet another developments algolia have a pretty interesting release or product, doubt very very soon. I tell us a bit about what that's all about what you're being spent a large chunk of your life doing all the hospital. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's it's a lot of us. It's a big thing that's been working on it and I'm just really phone number. Just on a part of it. It's our fall release which is all around artificial intelligence. So there's a number of products that we're announcing that are really exciting and thought it would be useful to talk about some of those cuz very proud of what the team did but also I think specifically for voice and conversational Builders. The people are listening to this once you to hear it directly from us as well because there's a lot of things that you can take away here. And even if you don't use algolia some of the things that we're building here are things that you'll want to bring it into your skill or build into your child Potter or whatever. It may just take you extra work to do or you know, you might do it on a in a low-rent kind of way so that it might be useful came to talk about some of these things that we built as a lot of things that were releasing and also talk about where we have done that in the past or where we would have done in the past if we could have done it. Hm nice sounds good job. So so those are. Nor algolia is essentially how would you describe it Enterprise search functionality it starts. So I you know, it's search and Discovery platform. Another thing that I say is you have used us even if you don't know you use us. I think the latest numbers is greater than 7,000 customers off. So if you've ever been on a website to shop or renews or a stretch for video good chances that one of those websites if not many use our service because we're powering their search inside their apps inside their websites inside their skills. What-have-you. We have a lot of customers who are using us for voice as well, interesting because when I first started when I first moved into this role Focus just on voice and natural language, I would speak with people in the community and they would say oh, well, you know, why wage Search inside of it and what I would say is you don't if you want a really simple skill, right? Like if you want to scale that just doesn't one or two things. That's fine. But if you want something off before trying to find information than searches is almost a must write game. We worked on a food ordering out points, right and they might have only had twelve twelve items. But still there's so many different ways for them to ask for those items. They might have asked for a burger. They might have asked her a hamburger. It might have asked for em with G. She's all the directions of the of the items themselves and quit something meaty, right like something that you may not have even thought of before and you usually get involved be a big cheese. Exactly. Give me give me cheese or the burger essentially and and you can work works. That's through the you know you for sure but wage You start to expand beyond that or even you know, the example that I give is maybe you're building something for for baseball, right? You can say the Chicago White Sox game. Say the White Sox. You can say the Sox, which also there's a Boston Red Sox as well. So how do you know which which you want you can say the I think the White Sox are the Southsiders you can say all these different things and you're in a used probably not going to handle it or you're going to just spend a ton of time making sure that your nou is handling it. So I really feel like in a conversational settings page can be incredibly powerful to give a super powers to your skill and then even something like a chatbot. We have a lot of customers who who use it took one step further because we have customers who They're using something like dialogflow and 20% 30% sometimes more of their requests aren't matched by dialogflow because people are asking things I've never been asked before and so they'll call back to algolia and they'll go. Hey, we don't understand but let's look through our knowledge base or let's look through our product catalog and let's see if we can find you something. That's that you want. So that's that's in a nutshell with as we do search and Discovery wherever you need

The Rays Eliminate the Yankees In a Heartbreaking Game 5
"Me ask you this e because. In, twenty seventeen, there was this new core coming up right. And the thought was hey. Unexpected Ron made the playoffs one game away from the world series and I remember even the wildcard game against Minnesota that year was like just let this core group get a playoff series under their belt so that they get some experience and can grow with it. You got within one game of the world series one one of the world series it didn't happen. Now, there's a postseason failure in eighteen in one, thousand, nine hundred and get to the brink again, it doesn't happen in twenty losing game five of the LDS. At this point. Does it still if you're part of that group. visit. Still feel like you're ascending or do you start wonder if you've plateaued Now, you deficit they just sending I mean especially, those guys are so young you know what I'm saying like. inexperience in you know in age. So Yeah I. Mean You know going back over that run like seventeen we had to run. With all those young kids in. Out though I didn't I had I, didn't think it was gonna make the playoffs just just because we went to the playoffs in seventeen and everybody had career years we're coming back. You know with a young team I just I was surprised that we made the playoffs gotta ask. about a red sox end. In the next year, I thought nineteen, we were set up to. To to make a great run a debrecen. Obviously, we didn't do that. NFL This year you know is short season everything went on. So just to be able to to get out there and play and compete I think guys are excited. You know excited I mean I think is a lot to build on I. Don't think. I don't think you can up this year with the rest of them just because it was such a short season you don't think any. There's no like wondering are we the you know late nineties braves early two thousand braves where we're going to. We're GONNA get to a certain now they won one in ninety five to be fair to them. But then you know they're winning division after division after division losing to the playoffs losing the playoffs listen to play. Yeah I mean it does that enter the mind of this group at this point. I. Like I'm not in a group anymore so. I can't. Really tell you if they're starting to feel like that or not. You know. I was never I was never in that position I was about to say as a young player would. Myself as when I was young, I always felt like I had time like like August time to do you know what? I'm saying I got time to do, and then like I say, I, always bring up a seven because that was our year like we put it all together and that was a year and didn't happen. So starting panicking. So. You would have to ask the guys individually which year they thought that they were GonNa win in when it doesn't happen that year then you start panicking like shit maybe this this may not have you know hand. Right now all those guys play for the Yankees in they noted that the organization will do whatever they can to try to win auto free agents, auto players, and so no I think that they got time you. and. The reality is the starting rotation. Looked a lot different than what they had set out for because you thought you were going to have Severino James Paxton right behind Garrett Cole and you didn't, and obviously that changes the equation and made you have to use the bullpen differently, etc. Now, I, WanNa talk about coal for a minute see look if there's One Guy. Who acquitted himself beautifully in this Yankees. postseason. It was Garrett Cole I. Mean This Dude was everything they could've asked for he gives up one hit in this game and who knows if it's not for some weird wall overhang that Aaron judge got to familiar with maybe he doesn't even give up any hits in his five and a third innings. He. He really delivered and that you have to feel good about knowing okay. This guy is going to shove exactly the way you want him to this time of year yet. That was great to watch him be able to go out before. As that I know he wants you know what I'm saying. So it'll be good not this time next year everything rolling around you'll be fans in the stands and. Hopefully. We can have that Yankee Stadium proxy magic, and. Readiness. All the way to to we're supposed to be, which is a berated. I. What about pitching on three days Resi. What feels different like do you notice like all my arm isn't as strong I mean what? What what makes it a more difficult challenge when you're not pitching on your normal rush when you're pitching on short rest, it's not necessarily like your are being source. It's like everything else like little aches Oh you know you know you didn't get your. Your full arrest so you can't really overthrow You know watching that I felt like he was trying to give his normal effort their first ending everything was up. You know he was all kind of all over the place. Any just kinda settled in you know what I'm saying he gave us time you take a little longer than than usual and. He kinda settled into the game was able to find this delivery. That's the one thing about picking three days you have to find your delivery like. Were percent. Can you pitch at whether that? Sixty, five, percent seventy, five, percent, eighty, five percent. You know what I'm saying like you have to find that was going to make you be able to strikes in and be effective. So if it seems like you've found that right at the right time, you got to strike out and you know he kinda he kinda sail from after that I mean you have to Solo homer to tomatoes and then you know almost today what's that guy's name? You say his name well over process l. no the guy run our arousal arise arena Larussa Rhody. Almost curveball out but other than that. You know he pitched great. So yeah like you said I mean he delivered and and you know going forward that he'll be able to to to pitch in these situations you know several be able to pitch any situation. We saw what money can do to two nights ago. Yeah. Your boy came man Monte the Frazier Bryant Man, these guys these guys are in a good spot. So like I said nobody I don't think anybody in their Hispanic and not player. Wise. Anyway, you know that that's is the fans in the front office and stuff. You are the master of pitching on three days Resi and because of that even though it has a little less punch because the Yankees lost this game compared to what it would have been if the Yankees won this game. I want explore that a little bit further with you because you you did it a lot. I mean the way you did it in. Milwaukee with multiple starts down the stretch over and over again as you were just in Bistro and then we saw it in the nine playoffs as well where you did it the entire Oh nine playoffs and delivered you did it in game one and four of the AL CS is at it again in Games one and four the world series. What kind of advice did you offer Garrett Cole as he was getting ready to do it for the first time in his career as someone who did a lot and did it in big stages? You know what I didn't and I was watching the first thing that I was like man Fuck I should've called. You know what I'm saying. But I didn't he's he gates. He's he he figured it out on his own. You know what? I'm saying, I don't need to call bad like he'll call me if he did something. Yeah so I don't I don't want to bother him. I don't WanNa call him I know how he is. You know know the days before you know the day of leading up to historic. So you know I I don't want to call him but please believe I'll facetime mining when I figured out that he was making start. Well whatever you told Monte in the face time, it worked out really pitch well and game four and I was encouraged. You know see if we go through this game, there's not there's not a lot to nitpick and say, okay, this could have been done differently. This could have been done differently. We've just lost a game and. You just lost a baseball game to. All the time where we go to Tampa or we we play apple you know what I'm saying. So that's why I was so scared to play them in the playoff series because. That's the one team that I know that can fucking Peterson the series and they know it too. Yep Yet one hundred percent. It's how I felt last year too when they were playing the Astros and people like Oh we want the race I was like the race competing in the. Last. Year to we would have been counted the same. You know what I'm saying we would have been a seven game series for sure if they beat if last night got typically fucker pitches. Right move coming for the first. and. On the whole right I mean this is this is not what you are looking forward to. If you're major league baseball as far as ratings go I believe the Yankees when all is said and done at the end of this s I think they're gonNA have nine of the top ten highest rated games thus far in the playoffs they're going to have been involved in. So you know you better believe that there are going to be people who are wishing that the Yankees went as deep as possible for the sake of you know the economics of the sport, but from a pure. David Goliath baseball storyline, and there is something amazing even though it's not going to make my stomach feel-good or your Z. about the Tampa Bay rays and they're twelve dollar payroll. Taken down the big bad Yankees and Brosseau hitting the home run off Chapman after that like there's something crazy about that story how many times it I tell you that's not the way we do my career I'm not into. The raise but winning visit. I kept telling you that. The fucking raise

"There's a dog You should definitely see moved on from the obviously traded Mitch Moreland. But Martinez might have been the one that I keyed on the most and said he's got someone some team out there is going to need him. He's going be of use to them the faith in National League. Now it kind of because they didn't trade him that tells me that but it didn't get as many offers for them. Then they get the market they wanted for him. So if you're on Bloomberg, I just move on from them to move on from when you could possibly trade him in the offseason if he opts in, you know what I mean? So I think maybe they kept their options open as far that goes. Maybe they move on from some of the other names because they said I will get a better Market in the off-season Cristian Vasquez being another one. And by the way Christian baskets the more I thought about that was that's a power-hitting catcher. Those guys are kind of hard to find. So unless slowly Back-up Plan change not just give these guys away. So that's why I kind of warmed up to the weekend too high in bloom had when I think if you asked me two weeks ago, if the players are just listed off for the only ones that they traded I would have been. I mean, yeah, and you're so J D Martinez obviously is the most important one that you that brought up and I think he's an end up saying here cuz I don't think the Market's going to be as big for him as he wants. Especially wage not taking over the d h, but they're not going to fold. Eh next year, right. They're going back to regular season. I'd be surprised. I mean, I think remember they are but like with the players are going to say give us the full-time DH it creates more jobs going to create, you know more opportunities for those guys. There's no reason to have pictures hip. I mean, that's the other thing too. Like with this code would be a sport some of these things are working right the national like DH Works. Yes. I mean like again, I'm just a temporary host right now for the show. But as of right now with this is an anti pitchers hitting podcast. I am so against that but it's good for the business for Red Sox because that means JD Martinez If he if the national league ads in that DH roll JD Martinez Opt out because there's going to be now an extra gaggle of teams that are going to need a d h and a lot of them don't have a guy like JD Martinez just waiting there in the rafters. So they're going to go after him and throw him. There is a growing up. So it's good for the Red Sox right now that the NL does not have that or at least in the long term and out doesn't have that but going back to my point about these guys who are still on the team and what it means. I think the Red Sox, I think that signifies that the Red Sox know that they are not entering a full-blown rebuild like a couple of years ago..

In fact, there's one guy who I I worry cuz he's always been good but not great. But he's having a really good season this year and he's making a splash on social media and I'm a fan of him because he talks a lot of crap, but I am genuinely concerned that the Red Sox are going to go out this offseason and throw in overpriced amount of money at Trevor Bauer. I don't I don't think he's going to keep up what he's been doing. Yeah, I don't love Trevor Bauer. But again, you look around you're like, okay. Well if you don't look Trevor Bauer, what do you want? What do you want to do what he wants to guess you do it. Do you want him to go get three more Martine Perez's you know what? I mean? Don't get a guy who's going to have any outray between 5 and 6 maybe win 10 games in a regular thousand. Do you want three of those guys order to have something like Trevor Bauer who is a quality picture. He's also, you know throwing media standpoint. He's going to mix it up so he's good for business in that regard as well, you know, oh it into it for sure. Yeah, you know, so so why not I don't you love that idea. But sometimes you have to look around and say well it's the best available maybe go ahead and sign them. I'm not totally against it. Right and and especially when you look at the offense as a whole cuz and we talked about at the start of Season. Okay, if there's going to be one if the Red Sox are going to win games cuz it's 60 Game season Anything Can Happen. The Reds win games going to have be like thirteen to 2:13 to 12. The pitching isn't good. But the offense is really good really hasn't panned out that way especially when you have guys like Andrew benintendi who just aren't producing that the way that even close to what you anticipated the way that they would produce so the offense I don't think you have to do too too much too..

"And so maybe that was the mistake by bloom in the Red Sox was giving me a million dollar contract to Bradley to begin with and now you're kind of stuck with that. I mean if they had traded Bradley and eovaldi that's 27 million off the books Mookie Betts. Twenty-seven million this year, so it's not that simple, but yep. Do wonder if that was a mistake and the other trades makes sense? I mean Brandon workman's a pending free agent you get something for him Kevin flowers pending free-agent. You get something from you know, he temporary had another year left of a like that returned. They packaged him with workmen. That's always smart to do Moreland has a three million dollar option for next year. So you like that but he's getting older and he's going to be thirty-six next year. He's got a lot of injury problems. You got them all back in Michael shave. It's the place and first base you want to see what they can do. They all the moves to be made sense. There is no movement was like, oh my God, what a brilliant move. The only question will one was not trading Bradley. But if you can't if can't get anything for him. So I got the Red Sox the Red Sox did find one. They didn't make and here's where baseball just plays with our emotions. I mean if I were to tell you, hey, the Red Sox did not sign an old guy who was three four Thirty this year you'd say big deal. Of course, they didn't but then I say that guy's fault, right and everybody kind of loses their mind. Hey, you could have bought black holes back and may God. Old City happy for a month blah blah blah. I'm glad block got a job. I really am as you know, he's such a great guy but no surprise the Red Sox just throw on the line, right? Yeah, you know, I was a little surprised they need players. They knew they were going to be making trades. Why not bring it back. It's like, you know, absolutely what's the point in keeping players who are not going to be free agents. Anyways when you are not going to make the playoffs so essentially why keep Bradley and he said it's important to have a positive environment here to have a club house that breeds winning that game he seems to really like Jackie and contributes to that even if Jackie's going to be a free agent just having him here for another month can be helpful to the overall atmosphere on the right side. Don't tell me having Brockville here for another month. When I took the same exact thing and wouldn't have cost them anything. He was released. It could have been a very easy move for them. I believe he passed through waivers and was just straight-up release and then signed by the national so Thursday. It seemed like an easy move that they could have made and didn't and I do Wonder because Bloom shows essentially chose Jose Peraza over Rock bolt in the off-season. We see this all the time. There's a lot of stubbornness with general managers in baseball when they when they make decisions. They want to stick to them and ride out and they don't want to ever admit that they screwed up and I think you bring it back. There is a could be a sense of who well terrazza didn't really pan out. You know, should we have kept hold? I don't know. I wonder about that. So here's what I'm wondering now, too. I was talking earlier about the rampant anonymity that suddenly has taken hold with the Red Sox..

Well. Actually it was a long time ago. I was going to say not too long ago, but we're talking about the freaking 1980s now, I think Jason mastrodonato of the herald also from Rochester, he does not remember Sam Horn because I'm old and he's not old but I once saw him against the Tidewater Tides with a 5 home run a doubleheader. It was just a remarkable thing to behold. I mean you guys know about Sam Horn better than I do. But other first home run games for the Red Sox not too many of them. Danny Shafer had one back in eighty-seven only nine ever. But anyway dalbec had one on a total golf shot just a little slice down the right-field line just inside the pesky pole. Nobody knew it was gone. It a 48-month Degree launch angle meaning just a towering pop up is all this was but that was a good day. Sunday was a good day. Kevin plawecki had never been on the field for a Red Sox win Owen eleven when he played and that's not fair. If you've actually had a pretty good year but Red Sox actually won the weekend series their unbeaten in their last 4 Series heading into what they've got with Atlanta right now and look at thier one and twelve against the Yankees and the Rays is here, but they got a winning record against everybody else. That's one way to to put that if we want to shine a nice light on it but back to dalbec I hope he's something the guy that comes to mind for me since I'm still dating myself and telling you how old I am or with every one of these Sam Horn Recollections. You guys remember creating gubanich. That's who that guy reminds me of the he was a big strong kind of Catcher slash infielder type late 1990s and went to Mike piazza's High School, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. And he was supposed to be something never was he had a home run maybe two or three games into his career. I'm looking it up right now. Hang on. Oh, yeah, here it is. This is an amazing game the Red Sox and 99th, which is such a fun team top to bottom. I know I'm viewing all over the place here, but the 1999 team think about it. I mean, it had Pedro's twenty three and four with a 2.07 313 Girl Scouts, which is still a record for the Red Sox. No more want to batting title hitting 357. You have the All-Star game at Fenway. David came up and got big hits Mike Stanley had a great year. They were down to nothing and it's just 5 in the playoffs outscored Cleveland 32 to 10:00 from that point on their rotation other than Pedro was an absolute hot mess who was Pat Rapp Mark Portugal. Jinho Cho San in Rose Wakefield was a closer perhaps the season That season was nuts. So the Creighton bubonic game the Red Sox behind a gubanich homerun took a seven. Nothing lead in Oakland, New Jersey. Early in the year and then they gave it all away..

There's not going to be real fans there. There's going to be fan noise, but was the psychology of that can be all about. There's still so much that a lot of people I mean.

We know unless NFL team goes seven and one down the stretch after three and five. They are cooked at that point. So getting out to eastern start and having a lot of orioles on the early schedule here, that should help, but They cannot stumble like they did last year. Remember that terrible open road trip.

Nomar Garciaparra Ninety seven at eighty-five Ted Williams get the list in nineteen forty. mookie made the list not in two thousand eighteen, but in two thousand sixteen was seventy eight divers had ninety. Last year and some of the best hands in all of baseball, though as able to respond to pitches, the defense certainly has gotten much better. He really turned the corner after that costly ninth-inning error in Chicago early May last year. He talked to Adrian Beltre on the phone and somehow got his mind, right. Guy had no home runs three runs batted in his first twenty four games last year and ended up where he ended up all right batting third your shortstop number two. Zander Bogart's who actually finished last in some of the defensive metrics among big league shortstops last year, but is blossomed in one of the best players offensively in the game. He was on base more than two hundred and fifty times last year, fifty, two thirty three home runs seems like he's absorbed the same lesson. His Jose Altuve The walks have almost doubled the last four years now he's doing major major damage, and we talk about finding another face of the Red Sox and Boston sports, really because Brady's not here Gronk, snotty or Cetera et Cetera.

I don't know if that's a great catchphrase, but Red Sox baseball twenty twenty. It's better than nothing. Where's it going to go I? Mean The ten playoff teams last year average ninety eight wins. Say Six. Oh five winning. Winning percentage so thirty six wins is what you got. Get this out of sixty. You can't afford something like five or ten starts. I mean you'd have to play basically better than the eighteen red sox did at that point to go forward just to get in, so let's get out of the chute against the orioles right high feeling about native all these reopening day star five point nine nine. Last year we'll get into that in just a moment. eighteen of pitchers got at least ten games for the socks in the world series season of two thousand eighteen, only half of those are still with the organization I'm working at sixteen red sox hitters got at least sixty at bats and twenty eighteen and again only half of those are still employed by the red sox. You say goodbye to a couple cy, young winners and Al Mvp World Series Mvp Potential Hall of fame closer, the fan favourite Brock Holt is gone. I mean even Water Nunez. For a while, so we'll break down. What is on tap for these Red Sox are twenty twenty shortened season as it may be no guest this time. This is just me talking to you about the lineup, the rotation the bullpen and we'll see if you agree with the assessment and give you some things. You probably didn't know, too. It's always the goal.

"Like. If I was the red sox I would have thought that more employees would probably wanted a furlough, but you know they're they're now. You know taking less money and still working and doing doing you know is. Is Much as they're expected to do so. Yeah, it's a difficult situation and you know we're seeing teams throughout the League doing it and I understand why A mass live put Did furloughs for a week? Everybody did a furlough. A bunch of media companies are doing it i. mean you know if your business is losing advertisement or other? That were just you know sales if it's a store? I mean if it's a restaurant and stuff I, mean it's difficult, so you have to do something I just think that furloughs ribbon better in this situation for some of these people instead of having to force in, give up all their. You know to give up some of their salaries a large percentage. Yeah and you know as much as I wanted to kind of swing towards some positive talk here I. Really Am big on that with all. That's going on in the world right now, but. I'm looking around and just on the subject of nickel and diming I'm looking at the nationals he talked about. You. Know things that you you could have done a little differently. Total News Dump Right I mean on a Friday afternoon with every city in the country, basically burning with race riots. That's when they basically decide. Well, let's announce it now that we're going to take everybody in the minor leagues from four hundred a week down or excuse me four hundred a month down two to three hundred, and I'm thinking. I don't know if you can nickel and dime worse than that I mean. Why would you WANNA save one hundred bucks? What what's what's the use of that? I mean especially a week ago. You shoot. Everybody knows big glitzy world series rings a cost, a JILLION dollars. What are we doing here? That's ridiculous. It really is I mean. I mean. How much does that really as you said? How much does that relieve in save in the long run? And what does that tell your minor leaguers you're trying to you know you're hoping will help you out major leagues, obviously I mean I chocked Josh Army. WHO's on the Red Sox? you know one of the red SOx minor leaguers on their forty man roster and..

"Just put a stamp on this and get get along. Little Doggy I mean let let's have this at least in you know. Fans are understandably pissed off. Teams again the Red Sox, not the worst offenders here, but everybody's taking their sweet time servicing the customers to get refunds to games that aren't being played. You look at the as not paying their minor leaguers. The nationals quietly deciding to cut minor leaguers salaries from four hundred bucks a week to three hundred bucks a week. Those are not good optics gotTA. Love the nationals player stepping. Stepping up and basically saying f you to management. If you know if you're gonNA take one hundred dollars away from minor leaguers will pull our resources and come up with that hundred bucks a week for these two hundred or so players I mean come on your Mark Lerner. You're worth five billion dollars is kind of the least you can do so again we're. We're looking for good things. We're looking for shiny stuff and the rubble right now and as America just spins off its axis right now in the whole world seems to as well. I WANNA. Go back in time. This is a one thing I thought you guys would appreciate because. The nostalgia play. Obviously, that's something that's kind of saving our butts right now, we we think of things that happened. Way Back when. Or even. Hack! Three or four months ago before Corona, virus and Because I'm recording this on June first. That's a day for me. It's funny. June first with the mets. That's the day Johan Santana had the mets only ever. No hitter and I missed it. I was back in South Lake Texas. My daughter was graduating from high school that evening, so it was a a no brainer. That's where I needed to be only have one chance to see your daughter. Walk across the stage so I was there, but I just so happened to Miss Johan Santana no hitter. That's baseball. Susan as our good friend John Sterling would say in New York, but for me, you know I I go back, and this is a fun anniversary for me. It is a twenty four year anniversary of something else entirely. It's when I got to be a major league baseball announcer. The Fox network was hiring young guys to roll out their new game of the week coverage and me and Ken. Singleton were a team for the first couple years they started mixing me up I worked with psycho lions for a while, and which sobbed in with MacArthur and boy. I'd some great partners at George Brett. Frank Robinson it was just amazing and. The very first assignment I got June First Nine Hundred Ninety six twenty four year anniversary today. My assignment was red sox at Seattle. And the Red Sox. Let's go back and ninety five. They were coming off. I thought a very interesting season that was ear. Tim Wakefield started fourteen in one in Wakefield was going to be on the mound for this game I'm going to get you through that lineup in a minute, but. That was the best of five against Cleveland, where in game, one nehring hit the go ahead of home on the eleventh, but then Albert. Bell hit the the big shot off Rick Aguilera and the bottom of the inning, the Tony Pain you walk up again seen Smith, so the socks ended up getting swept in the ninety five playoffs with can Saco taking an over thirteen I think.

"Red Sox beat. This is Josh Lewin your host from the other coast sitting out a year and Salona Beach California where things are starting to quiet down. What a crazy weekend! Awful weekend! Maybe, this'll be archive, and you're listening to this and twenty twenty three for all I. Know A boy. Wouldn't it be nice, but it was twenty twenty three right now, but the weekend just for archival purposes that just happened in America was eye-opening, scary chaotic. Horrible. Race riots and Protests gone wrong and there's some good things the I'm sure can come out of it I. Sure Hope So. It's scary. TIMES CORONA viruses. According is the number two thing that everybody's talking about. Twenty Twenty Sucks Just to biblical proportions. I'M NOT GONNA. Wear you out with that. You're here to get away from it and I'm here to provide so. We're GONNA. Try to get to in this episode. A little bit of prediction in terms of when we might see some baseball when we might see the red sox out there at fenway wasn't a great week or weekend for the socks either. We're GONNA talk to Chris Smith momentarily from mass live. He's going to break down the red sox kind of caving towards what a lot of teams are doing right now. Which is saying look? We're you know we're losing money, so you're gonNA, lose money. We're going to start having some salaries here releasing minor leaguers and As always I hope he has. Total red. SOX Honk I give the red sox of the doubt all the time, because I think that that they the giants the phillies. Maybe there's very few teams. It seemed to do almost everything right. All the time and the Red Sox are usually right at the head of that list. I just don't think they. They had a very good Friday. With News Dump that showed that they're gonNA start cutting salaries and. The structure of how they did it. We'll get into that with Chris and a little bit, but I want to try to keep it somewhat. I don't WanNa say positive because again. Nothing super positive right now, but just. As of June first the latest that you need to know the players proposal finally came back. They want one hundred fourteen game season would start at the end of June would go to the end of October. That's probably not going to happen for a variety of reasons, but at least it seems like there's some some talk now some back and forth and. Expanded Playoffs for a couple years I dig that that's fine. They're talking about a salary advance of one hundred million split among the players during Spring Training two point Oh. Still talking about enhancing the season with microphones on the players and other broadcast enhancements. All of that would be fantastic and. Holding some other events like off season all, Star Games. Plural home run derbies. I mean there's so many cool ways you can be generating goodwill and additional money, so they need to find a way right I mean. The nuclear option is not an option that they gotta understand. How if you don't play, it might take years if not decades for some fans to forget all of this squabbling, the millionaires versus billionaires. And other sports are starting to come back or at least show that they know what they're doing in terms of coming back, so it's time to..

Minor League baseball defines it as one market. That's why you have not had two minor league. Teams in wooster. One in pawtucket I simultaneously in organized baseball so I feel bad that only lately. Did we really dive into the culture of Western, but it's one. that. You learn in immediately. Is that the heart? The symbol of a heart is ubiquitous and you recognize. Is that maybe there at least three reasons that it's so valid one? Back in eighteen, forty eight, when worcester went from being a town today in a city they. Declared themselves the heart of the Commonwealth. So. They were a transportation hub They are essentially located in Massachusetts. But also right around that same time in wooster the Commercial Valentine. was invented but really the third reason is the most Tackle reason you can feel. You can touch and feel the compassion of the city. It is a city with a heart they've had tragedy with firefighters other tragedies to but losing the Worcester six. In nineteen ninety nine ripped. Ripped this city, and if you're from Worcester, everybody knows and everybody was affected Firefighters in law since including recently and so, but how the city reacts to heartbreak is heartwarming. It's a remarkably passionate and compassionate city, so the hard is ubiquitous symbol, and that's why we want back in the logo. Also. Go back to November.

In Nineteen, seventy later became triple eight of Nineteen, seventy, the twenty twenty. was you know a fifty year period and tied in a bow and you know a lot of baseball? Fans know the longest game professional baseball history. was thirty three. Any Games that you are familiar with because of your days with Rochester Red Wings. But in nineteen eighty one.

"You look up tainted means that there's something sticking to it. Something in there is something there so. Let's be be grownups about it recognized that there was an issue there, and that's where we are. I think that's very well sad and you know if you go inside the numbers. Maybe it's coincidence, maybe not, but for what it's worth. The team Oh. PS with runners in scoring position in eighteen was eight seventy two when they had nobody on, it was about seven fifty, so whatever they were doing. It worked but but all in all I. is it fair to say? The socks skated a little bit I mean? If. They really didn't dive dear nearly as deep as the Aska was did it makes sense. Punishment was far less other than a video replay guy taking the fall Cora Front office. Everyone else comes off pretty clean here. Yeah and one of the things I've learned in which reading over the years is that? You can rip the team. If I. Read a call saying. Oh, the red sox in this the Red Sox, that and boo the Red Sox, and how dare they? I can walk into the clubhouse the next day and no one's going to bat an eyelash. When you, would you aim your your poison pen if you will? At individual players, coaches and In front office types, and so forth when out now it's the individual that's being called to the carpet, and that's when you walk in there the next day and you've got that player will come running up to you, Hey! Tom How dare you so forth, So with that in mind with that philosophy mine, of course, they skated. Because it's if you Google Boston Red Sox while you're going to get that stop, but you google individual players. They're not part of it. And so they can sleep well at night. Knowing that their individual reputations have not been a questioned. And, so if you look at it that way, yes, of course, they skate. You know I look back I. Guess was twelve years ago when the US housing market crashed, and how not a single top executives at any of the major banks went to jail, one loan banker somewhere that I think got thirty months because you can seal the tiny fraction of his company's losses, but that's kind of the comparison. Some people are making your the JT. Watkins is this one lone banker, and if you're to believe Major League, baseball, he acted alone in decoding and relaying signals and Dave Dombrowski didn't know John Henry didn't know the players didn't know, so. Let me have you put your intrepid journalist hat on again. Is that possible I mean it? Could that really be true? Could. It be true that it was Watkins alone doing all this question. Yeah, we'll know it's silly. Because he. He doesn't have that kind of power. he? He didn't move the video replay room to right behind the DUGOUT. And he didn't on his own and I don't know him well. I had a pleasant five minute conversation with him in Fort Myers back in February, walking down a hallway together and We have a couple mutual friends so when I say I know him, I I have a vague familiarity with him and nicest thing I can say he's a very pleasant young man. that doesn't mean I've done a you know exhausted investigation into the way he does his job. But. I find it hard to believe that this person. Who hopes to grow and prosper and have a career in baseball would all by himself. Gather this information and put it under. The is in front of the eyes of Big League ballplayers That just doesn't make sense to me I think that's that's being very naive..
