Going to happen to get creative, it's going to be a challenge to say the least for the figure out and. Based on our conversation. I think probably I would say seventy five to eighty percent of this fall back on the owners, but also on rob Manfred and That guy's. A entirely different conversation, try to get in because I had a tweet earlier in the week and some people be but this. Is, rob Manfred be worst conditioner out of the four, and you can include the MLS one. I really know much about the guy I think. His name is Don Garber but they're getting their soccer going.

"Yeah! I don't know it's it's kind of a good segue to go into this now because we talk about all that, but we found out today that a member of the Toronto Blue Jays on the forty man roster tested positive for Covid, nineteen and eight members of the phillies organization. They didn't I think it was five players and three personnel, perhaps causative and the reason the Blue Jays player. Has it positive was because he was over in clearwater. Working out and being with the phillies players indefensible. Anybody's known clearwater Dunedin. As close. Anyway and in an area like literally they might have working out what they call it just as easily from anybody in a supermarket frigging random restaurant because they've been doing things like that down in Florida or God forbid you know clearwater beach. That's been. Nine. So actually the the it's a bit point. It seems like it's gone back to where we were at when this all started in March and April where cases are on the rise, and we were saying back then play, if it safe to do so in for a little while it was looking like it was coming down and again not to get political, but Republicans open their say. Almost the full capacity where you could go to nightclubs and bars and not be forced to wear masks, and so that takes away Florida. That said Record Arizona. And Texas was third state that they were taking a potential playing baseball. All three are at the highest rate now outside of California so where the hell are you gonNA play. You went up Rhode Island. I'm going to be the one that's actually standing outside his house with picket signs saying MLB show the fuck up listening. have. University of Rhode Island.

Yeah Dude are are positively. Re has been below five percent for the past two weeks. We had a protest slash last week. two weeks ago when providence in the main city in Rhode Island with over ten thousand people today exactly two weeks of the day which would you would expect to see? A Spike did not happen. We've only had fifty approximately fifty fifty eight. Confirmed cases to day to day out of two thousand plus I'm telling you Rhode Island's got it down. Come to Rhode Island Mlb Albie. The investment I'm right here. I guess I'm going to rent my side of New York state because we're in those same numbers on the far west side in. Most of the cases around here in Rochester urban and the thirty ballpark forty days forty per day, or whatever nothing crazy. But in death rates, really then dropping like A. Stall from the sky so. Positive. Things looked like they were coming. Especially from what we you know with collective the talking about in this conversation and the fact that you get to the point where you're all of a sudden, you're hearing. This bombardment is coming out with three thousand something cases every day in Florida. Seems like something. I've a fucking horror movie..

"Where's the when you're? When your team is good, you will show up. Just and Ballpark seen it already in two thousand fifteen. When everybody was like holy crap. There's actually could on a random. Thinking in my head. A random Monday night game against the athletics back in August with Robin up on my Holy Shit. That's forty five thousand people in. Get Right now, and you can barely get twenty thousand for this game like at the beginning of the year were. Town. Yeah, it was sticking to town for three years. Even say two thousand seventeen had that rub off fact from twenty fifteen twenty fifty bands will show up castle. Fans will show up you gotTA. Look? We Know Alex. Field of dreams that you're as he built that team and they did come. Some guy. I. There's a really really negative energy around everything sports right now, but especially when it comes to baseball because I think we started very very lightly and briefly over the last week, but. There is a chance. And I don't want to get to hear that fans will not be able to go to the Major League Baseball game regularly is twenty twenty three. Look, there's no. There's no guarantee there will be a vaccine ready in time for the start of the season to twenty twenty. I think it will be, but there's no telling that it will be ready to go twenty twenty. Twenty two looks like we're heading into Labor. Stock it's and that does not look like negotiation going right now that it will be ironed out at all, but three now and whenever the fires, so if they take that full year to get it done the twenty twenty three, and hopefully, there's no fucking pandemic or anything going on. Should we come back, but that would kill. If you go that long because you're losing out so much money on the minor league system and be aren't the teams that are trouble with the Oakland athletics. The Tampa Bay rays the Kansas City. Royals. He could go bankrupt without having that source of income if they don't figure this out quickly.

"And I I admire the players trying to stay in shape and do voluntary workouts like setting up these makeshift training. Training Camps Rather the Blue Jays I don't want to bury the lead here. But the Blue Jays Dunedin that didn't go well. The phillies themselves that didn't go well either and I'm sure it doesn't end there. It would not surprise me if this is something that is just starting to bud in on. A would not surprise me if those aren't. The only two teams have been affected by this. I wouldn't be surprised at all. So guys one thing I want to bring up on rob Manfred in particular is according to his reputation when he resumed office in over for Bugsy League. He had five primary goal as commissioner during his tenure they are. Because I can only see one not even sure if the one even very good job one time. It's in. Outreach at one, embracing technology, quickening the pace of play which he has done. That's still into safe. I'll keep my throw him in the middle. There to exactly strengthening player relation and blocks one creating a more unified business operation now going on right now. Four and a half five. I've seen crappier presidents. Have Goals reached. Beer to be a perfect with that. Based on those five guys, has he? Accomplished any because there is evidence, and it's actually been instituted that the pace quickened a little bit, you eliminated the having to throw fourballs for got walk. Just give the signal you've instituted pitch, clock or sorry. The clock in between breaks in between innings. And win a pitcher comes in for relieving starter and whatnot, so it has quickened beyond that even if you WanNa touch on that point has had. They embraced technology. Have they strengthened player relation? has outreach been any better, and is it a more unified operation I? Don't know. Which one do you WanNa take that first of loaded question, but. I'M GONNA. Take the nerdy one because I'm the resin. It Guy Basically now. Let's go into your day..

"That was pretty much. This is how we're summed up the MLB owners, or whatever said to the players how I know. We promised you twelve, but we'll give you six and the players are like no. Okay, how about a half dozen? No, back the same thing all right? How about three times put times to know? They just come back with the same low ball bullshit offer. It's not productive like you have to give so in this regard I I this false square on the shoulders of him, and he needs to do better, or he needs to understand that he's losing fans. He's ever since like the NBA got popular ever since the rise of football, he's losing fans spray and he needs to do better to to make this more exciting and to keep the fans that he's had arnold is GonNa, be one thousand, nine, four slash ninety five debacle all over again. Mark my words. Yeah. Go ahead, Greg I think he's GonNa. We've said Multiple Times on the show. A strike is already started. Oh Yeah. Multiple Times so and I think a lot of that as bad as Manfred has been I, don't know at least in these arguments Tony Clark sticking it was ground about protecting the players, but as far as that giving thing is going on just both sides, and we're not seeing it, but the fact that we know that Manfred has been doing nothing but this tear down the game we love with the. frigging pitch, crap the clocks, and now we have all this crap about can only have one in the bullpen guy. Has the pitch whole inning? Three. All that kind of stuff there's a so many stupid rules that have been changed and tweaked and this, and that that why? The game was fine before you came on and showed up Mr Manfred. There is no reason that we need to be screwing around with us if you're trying to attack the game to try and make it more. Beneficial for younger fans to start getting interested in baseball. You're going runway, and now you're setting it ablaze by not allowing players even to come to the table, and actually have a real conversation about how we meet in the middle and get this all set. Yeah. Not I. Don't know any other way to put it out of time in there. I. Don't WanNa. I don't WanNa. Get philosophical about this, but the main people have about baseball. Is that as long and morning? If you if you talk to the layman about baseball, it's long and boring and one time for it. Okay, that's that's fine and you know. I, understand, it's a business and I understand you have to make money, but. That just means it's not for you..

"O'clock rob Manfred Major League Baseball convert commissioners certain that Major League Baseball will take place this summer he's hopeful that it will come as a result of a negotiated agreement between the MLB Players Association and MLB a circumstance that feels unlikely in the midst of this contentious is seemingly unproductive negotiations over the past few weeks now Manfred in his six year is a Major League Baseball commissioner says legal soon provided a response a proposal the latest offer from the MLBPA which their offer consisted of an eighty nine game season and full pro rated salaries that he's a hundred percent sure there will be a season the most important thing is that we play Major League Baseball in twenty twenty and I can tell you unequivocally we are going to play Major League Baseball this year now how can you say that well back in March when they suspended spring training the MLB eight MLBPA the Players Association agreed to give him a right to come out and say there will be a season and this is how many games were gonna play what they're fighting over is how much of a pro rated salary they'll get the players one hundred percent pro rated meaning if they played seventy five games they get paid a hundred percent for seventy five games not a portion of that which was agreed to backyard she has real yes so he can actually come out and say we're going to play in this is when we start if you don't play you don't get paid it's that simple I don't know I mean both sides are just not budging on this it's no it is going to come down to where he says he's got the autonomy to implementers shorter season that were reportedly consists of forty eight games but would pay the players a full pro rated salary for those forty eight games what's that's sounds pretty wonder why does they want more games the players wanted like a hundred fourteen games yesterday with eighty nine games they don't want that forty eight game season now the players in the email PA the MLBPA said that they would do that but they would deny any expanded postseason and might even file a grievance all of which could spill over into negotiations over a new collective bargaining agreement the current one is set to expire after the twenty twenty one season it's you know here's the bad part it it they had a chance to get out there get back it may be a track some some younger viewers because that's what they're they're hurting on right now they're average viewers by age yeah I had it you couldn't read Riley had a captured audience and this is gonna turn off even their loyal fans this point do you know it right now if they don't play this year I'll say this right now but a part change my mind actually I don't know if all overwatch game again he'll be Florida before I actually I'm just you know if you feel Moby does want to come back let's why don't we just do some I don't know college baseball you know they have already said the Little League World Series not gonna happen this year some out on that one but I watch college baseball you don't turn the Korean baseball I was an American baseball COSC Amin we now started maybe.

"The Astros this segment and also more on a ridiculous proposal to expand the baseball playoffs if rob I look I might think about rob Manfred I did all I know I know it's not true I I understand it's not what you based on his actions I believe rob Manfred wakes up every day and says how can I do the wrong thing for baseball even more than I did yesterday with the Astros punishments way at this expansion of the baseball playoffs with all the other things that he's done and read them that way he's handling getting rid of the minor league teams and some of the smaller cities out there are all the things rob in for does it I you know you watch what he does and you're like he's trying to stir up he's not that bad the guys that all full still on the phones here and we will do it in Jacksonville Florida first and we will talk to Louise Louise you are on SB nation radio good to have you what's up Hey Jason I appreciate you taking my call to touch on a couple of things I wanted you to give me some all quite realize that may be far fetched what you're missing hope is the Miami Marlins out and you don't you think Derek Jeter would want to see if he did everything he does he was great as a player any garbage in an owner don't you think he wants to like I said I did everything right AT and you will be on top of his game no matter what he's doing I can't imagine what he is doing his rock farming the team and I are jazz hoping to rise yet but the movie's making light cheese of your company is I don't know where you're going with this well the problem in Miami is again this is a bigger problem with baseball they don't have the revenue it mine is a big market city but they don't draw that or the TV ratings like other teams do the Yankees the red Sox the Dodgers things like that so you're you're operating with a limited budget I think Jeter does want to win but they're trying to do this like many other teams have in recent years where they tear it down and they build it up again with the farm system they got some pretty good players Sixto Sanchez as far as our right handed pitcher is a guy in their farm system hazy Sanchez is another outfield a like a lot Monty Harris it is another obviously got some prospects good players you know at the minor league level but unfortunately the major league level they won fifty seven games last year I don't expect to be much better this year maybe marginally and you gotta wait till these kids develop and hopefully when they do Louise then the Marlins sign some key free agents but look I'm based in Chicago the cubs did this it worked out for them it just was a shorter time span for the cubs the obscene came in before twenty twelve season like twenty fifteen they were in the NLCS after three bad years twenty twelve thirty forty were bad that's the property the Marlins don't at at time formula so I can't sit here and tell you other than some good prospects that the Marlins have a bright future right now hopefully in a few years here's the thing when you stand galaxy away when you send all of your great players that you had stand Jimmy yeah rich Ozuna you needed to get at I would say nine players Dr and six of one had to be top prospects that's how you get really good really quickly they're pretty much start garbage for everybody's up it's going to go away and they got rid of it all that's not how you build enough price for their incompetence because I did yeah okay I'm forced to get rid of these guys however I'm getting the best of the best no you're right every team on trading with and then you're right you're right you're right I'll build on at least look you're absolutely right because when you trade away guys like you mention real moto Christian yell H. all the other guys if they traded you better get guys that are if they're not major league ready they're close to it because you don't get assets like that every day you get a count on your front office and not just Jeter the guys who make the day to day decisions do the right thing and it doesn't look like at least right now those guys have been very good for the Marlins organization the guys they got back there not like big impact as you're right if you screw that up you're in the wilderness for a long time the pirates what twenty years out a winning season why because they made some of the same mistakes you're talking about right now well I don't succeed that's what it comes down to I don't first year going forward I don't trust the general manager I don't trust any of that and you want to know why the Mormon talks or will getting found in the stadium it's because every single owner that they've ever had has blown up the gene the two World Series teams yes they were built you know all the different ways and then thrown out the medially afterwards tires are supposed to have the trust watered down even want to go out there if they're not having faced out the team's gonna stay together and even when the stars like regular good scores you said he was gonna like pony up the money and pay on he won't hopefully for Marlins fans and I appreciate the call a waste thanks for checking in from the great city of Jacksonville Florida hopefully for Marlins fans he will bought you're probably right again because again this is a huge problem with baseball the economic structure is so out of whack football by far has the best economic structure for the fans you have never heard the Steelers say we are not keeping that Roethlisberger because we can't afford in Pittsburgh is not a big market same deal with Green Bay Wisconsin even the state of Wisconsin Hey we lost Brett Farr because we can't Pam same deal with Aaron Rodgers nope doesn't happen Kansas city Lucent Patrick balls anytime soon because of the contract nope they'll be able to pay him the way football works yet the franchise tag you keep around it'll work out the way the money is shared Kansas City Royals won the World Series in twenty fifteen there to liquidate the team because baseball does not have the same economic structure salary cap salary floored football they share the TV money and there's competitive balance in baseball the Yankees out of the numbers in front of me but let's lose our use arbitrary numbers the Yankees might get up to a hundred million from the yes network and what does the Kansas City Royals organization given their TV deal maybe two five million a year ten million a year so that's a big problem and I know revenue sharing is there and I understand that you know the MLBAM they advance media I think teams get like fifty million Bucks a year from that but still they have these huge huge monster payrolls when you don't the same ticket prices in New York that you do in Pittsburgh you know the same TV revenue coming in at Miami is a big market Lewis is you know you're down there in Florida no Jacksonville's a few hundred miles up the road but my name is out of Miami is a world class city it is an international city you think about the United States the San Francisco you think of LA you think of New York you think of Miami maybe Chicago for the Midwest but first international cities Gulf Miami's when the great cities not only United States but in the mud when the entire world but they don't drop for baseball they just don't people are interested in going to baseball games down in Miami the Marlins even when they are good they have a problem drawn and if you don't draw your TV revenue isn't as high as other teams in different markets you don't have the ticket revenue the all the money and part of the reason the Marlins are not competing right now it's not all Derek Jeter not try to defend the Marlins organization here they've made some poor decisions bought on the same side of the economic argument with those decisions you have to look and say the money's not there like it is in Boston New York LA or even Chicago eight hundred two two four two all four also on Twitter adjacent gosh is my Twitter handle not what's your from some of the voices involving the scandal with the Houston Astros Kris Bryant yesterday on Saturday morning had this to say when he arrived comes training camp yes certainly Townson ball players but you know I I personally think it's worse and steroids really I mean it's Serra do you still have to compete hit the ball you know it's coming I mean I thought off of these pictures like guys throwing you know upper nineties with really good curveballs insiders and you can totally formally unbelievable game plan based on certain things if you know what they're coming like it's just frustrating I've always believed that their audience eight year up was deserve to have that black mark on baseball for that that those guys are cheaters they should've been punished even more than they were in the steroid era and I have no problem saying this on national radio Jason dot with you there's no place in the hall of fame for Alex Rodriguez Roger Clemens or very bonds but with that said I think Bryant's right on that if you would pitch is coming yeah steroids might help your recovery time you might hit the ball little bit harder little bit further but when you know what's common fastball curveball change up whatever it is Qatar boy that's a huge advantage that is really it's a huge advance it's like going it's like your eyes weekend warriors if we're playing baseball or software just like playing baseball did you go to the batting cage and you step in the medium or faster the batting cage well you got a huge advantage the batting cage versus facing a why pitcher what's comedy throws a fastball right down the middle I think I played baseball in high school like tens of millions probably in our audience I picked up a baseball bat almost thirty years in a competitive game I can still go in the medium or fast the batting cage and make decent contact you know why like many of you out there you just call me if you don't know that's coming then you got a problem why pitcher out there look like a fool probably at this point my wife but you know it's coming same deal for Major League Baseball players at a different level these guys that look the reason you get them almost the time they don't know what pitch is coming you don't pitch is coming yet a huge advantage now here's rob Manfred more about the responsibility of the Astros not taking a here's here's the commission I don't absolve the players of responsibility I think they're in their comments at least some of them you can see the fact that they that they understand are they have a fundamental obligation to play within the rules and I I don't think any of them feel like they've been absolved frankly yeah you did you're absolved of responsibility rob because you don't punish job I mean come on are you kidding me this is basic I mean this is stuff you should know if you're if you're on a police officer versus somebody steals from the grocery store if you're a parent and your kid puts his hands in the cookie jar too much I mean come on you let him break the rules they get punished yeah punish hitch he was of the orchestrator this one that was not the orchestrator this they might let it go but they were not the orchestrators of it what you didn't part a punish the guys were involved in making it happen in doing it come on I mean naive as rob Manfred it's awful now if we couldn't get any worse for baseball they came out with a playoff proposes wavered Pat last week they.

"A sport rob Manfred in this case his primary motive is not justice it is not investigation it is business and so what are you trying to do here is trying to minimize the PR fallout because this scandal threatens a lot about what we understand the sport to be it threatens record books it threatens the integrity of the game the most serious stuff the commissioner has to worry about but what's funny to me is that by telling these teams Hey you don't talk about this all you're doing is daring all of the other people around these teams to talk about yeah except for the fact that I feel like it was really going to operate like a day or the somebody would have said something instead of telling Jeff passing that we can't say anything rite whatever message you got across the seem to have gotten there because nobody's saying anything what I want to know is specifically why are you so pressed because the league comes down with a hammer and they basically said the Astros had a cultural problem why are you so afraid of somebody else in effect echoing the idea that a cultural problem or is the issue they your penalty has been seen by this Lee by the people around the league as not being strong enough right why wasn't it stronger maybe then becomes the question right about Major League Baseball I'm honestly looking around be like really you guys room for us to like more of a hammer that seems to me to give you more position down the line in case something like this happens yeah there's complexity in this because these reports I read in Sports Illustrated indicated that the Astros told Major League Baseball that there are eight other teams that were guilty of something very similar all of that speaks to a common practice throughout this game but at the same time I've been looking to our friend bill plasti en LA he was agitating on behalf of the Dodgers to want World Series is stripped like this is something that I think teams are legitimately aggrieved about but I don't think baseball wants to come anywhere close to an asterisk yeah the the levels that this goes down like Molly night rose on the for the athletic a few weeks ago about all the guys who either been designated for assignment or just flat out release the Jack in the aftermath of this like it was a fascinating says stories guys went there last appearance against the Astros and then suddenly they got rocked and then they were out here like this really did affect people's lives.

"If you had your druthers, it would be all done there. And you'd be wrapped up and getting like crazy coming off of that. I think there's a positive and negative. Right. I mean, I think that positive of you know, a flurry of activity when you own a week in December when it's your off season. That's a really great thing. The second thing it does is it puts it behind you all the stories about who signing not signing. They're done and you can move on getting ready for the season in looking forward to who's going to be good and how the clubs are gonna play. Rob Manfred here on the rich Eisen show the Commissioner of baseball. The question of the schedule with the Mets Noah Syndergaard, not happy about it. Did you hear about it from the Mets about playing night game? And then having a a home opener early in the afternoon in one of the players having to take a drug test to keep the team held up for an hour. Yeah. Look, I mean, obviously. We liked to be sensitive to travel concerns are players play a really tough schedule right hundred sixty two times and now one hundred and eighty seven days, but the fact that a matter is one of the keys to a really strong drug program. Which is what we have is a lack of predictability if player. No if players now, they're not going to be tested on a game day when they have to travel afterward that weakness in the program. So while I don't love the inconvenience. I'm really sympathetic to what some of the Mets player said, I think the larger issue is that we have a drug program that is completely unpredictable in terms of when you're going to be tested, and that's a good thing. Okay. You my my Red Sox friend, Chris Brockman over? There is probably this is born out of the record that the Red Sox currently have right there. What's the record right now to six? Okay. That starting the season on the road for World Series champion is something that obviously you can't prevent right because the schedules done before the season's over right, then I get that. Right. Chris. Yes. Okay. So on behalf of right SOX fans. What what about the idea about creating a schedule after the season's over? Well, we have an obligation under the collective bargaining agreement to give a scheduled to the players association in July to give them an opportunity to comment on it. And, you know, get it in place. Secondly, the clubs like to sell against it. Right. They don't they don't wanna wait until you know, who the World Series champ is, and you know, it's interesting everybody looks at our schedule. And they say, oh, you know, you should do this. You should do that. While you know, another consideration right is Boston is a cold weather. City. They started on the road where it was warmer, and they will open at home where hopefully they've had another week and a half four to to heat up. So you know, there's just a lot of considerations. Go into who start to wear so it's climate change. Chris I understand part of my point. Is that other sports the NFL and the NBA in particular have done a great job making the opening night of the season with their respective champions, a big event, and I think baseball could take this look at them and use it as an opportunity to do the same. Yeah. I think that I think from a practical perspective to start building a stage, Royal once, you know, who wins the World Series. Just don't have enough time to do it. You know, you remember it's twenty four hundred thirty games as opposed to, you know, much more limited football. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. I mean, it's just a more complicated process. And from a timing perspective. Probably not workable rob Manfred here on the rich Eisen show. We Alex bregman show studio, and he was awesome. Yes. Awesome. And if thing that I really enjoyed about him in meeting him is he's like, you know, young players. We want to sell this game. We want to get out there have, you know, I've you sense that from of the younger players that they're yeah. They're ready to roll. We have a younger group of players. They're really appealing from talent level..
