Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned. Wearing a face mask and public is now mandatory across Paris and many of its surrounding areas riot police units, and gendarmes have been deployed to enforce these measures. However

The disease has now claimed the lives of at least one million people worldwide as NPR's neorealism and reports. Most of those deaths have occurred in just four countries. The largest number of global covert 19 fatalities are in the United States, where the death toll has already topped 200,000. Next in line are Brazil, India and Mexico, and all four of these countries are still struggling. They also rank highest when it comes to daily new deaths over the past week. Meanwhile, several countries such a Spain in France that had more success curbing large early outbreaks are now seeing troubling resurgence is also in trouble is Argentina, where the daily new death toll is now fifth highest in the world. By contrast, China where the pandemic started, has kept its case load under control for months and is still reporting a total of less than 5000 deaths. Nurit Eisenman NPR news U.

Worldwide COVID-19 Cases Soar as Scientists Scramble for Response
"This week in America a grim and telling number. More than two hundred, thousand people have now died officially of Covid nineteen the House of Representatives held a moment of silence yesterday to acknowledge that painful milestone more people have been infected there than in any other country. Cases continue to climb states that suffered the most are recovering but infections and others are rising, which seemed to have been making progress in tackling the virus is against infections spreading fast and in Britain, and elsewhere there were expectations warnings of a second wave. I'm sorry to say that as in Spain and France and many other countries we've reached a perilous journey. With a vaccine still well down the line preparations are being made for an uncertain and tragic winter. And many governments have squandered precious time failing to prepare for what's to come. I think it's important to realize that each country experiences curb in its own way. Edward Car is the economists deputy editor. Europe. At the moment is going through a second wave cases in. India. Very high but overall it's been a consistent increase relentlessly such that they're announced note two million recorded cases day. And that reflects I think the both the nature of the disease and the insufficient grasp of the basic public health policy response that's required and are there any bright spots? Any positives to look too at this stage? Well, of course, in the background, which is hugely important has been fantastic and really impressive work by scientists and doctors, both to kind of work on the treatment protocols to find various medicines and to do research on vaccines. So that's all that's also entering in the background and it is beginning to have an effect on fatality rates, but there's a lot more to come on that. And what are the improvements on the medical side specifically. Well quite a lot of it's kind of really basic medicine. So when people first presented with what was thought to be essentially a respiratory illness, the focus was on the lungs people were put on ventilators in very large numbers vary eilly and that that wasn't always very good for them and didn't help them as much as was needed. Now it's realized this is a disease that attacks many organs in the body has stroke is a big problem that kids can suffer the heart damage and doctors a much better at keeping an eye on fluid levels on oxygen levels on treating the symptoms that might be harming various organs. So just in sheer sort of management of the disease that being big improvements. And then, of course, the medicines of and POPs one of the most important decks and methods zone is a is a very cheap steroid that can be bought and supplied in large quantities in that has for people who need oxygen and to need ventilation can lead to substantial declines in mortality of twenty to thirty percent. And the hope is that over the coming months, there'll be more medicines and. Vaccines which will bring that fatality rate down still more. and. What's your sort of overarching take on the the public health response. For the Public Health Response has been just much much more variable for a number of complex reasons. I think one problem political problem has been some differences on on what the priorities should be. Some countries have a ticket only favored keeping the economy open and Sweden's often held up as an example there possibly an idealized example because in fact, actually there were restrictions others have tried to keep the death rate down to zero by having a blanket. On the economy I personally think the both of those extremes are wrong. Sweden's actually had quite high death rate and quite a big blow to its economy compared with the neighboring countries, Finland Norway. Denmark. He's done some worse on both those measures. New Zealand has had a stunningly successful. Ability to keep the deaths right down but it's paid a very high price because it's shot the the whole country down and if you look at a country like Taiwan been even more successful on deaths and paid a much much smaller price in terms of the economy. And I think that that's because the countries that have been prepared to make trade offs and have had good public health can succeed in both reducing fatality rates and in keeping bits of the economy open. But what does that look like in detail? How should that that trade off actually be made you think? I think are two or three key components, and the first of those is a really granular testing and tracing operation. The second thing that's important is being sensible about the trade offs and then the third thing that's important is how to communicate this. I think people are quite goods in an emergency at taking difficult steps to change their lives but it's very hard to sustain and this will need to be sustained already need to stay for nine months but this'll go on for a long time yet before supplies all vaccines are plentiful enough for everybody to being vaccinated and even then the vaccines might not work that well or they're affect might be temporary so we're going to be living with this disease for a long time yet. I mean a lot of this advice was was starting to become clear even even months ago, and why do you think it is at different countries responses continue to be so divergent when the the best practice seem. To, be converging. I think that's a hard question to answer I. Think part of it was the enormous relief when countries have had a bad first wave came out of lockdown at the end of the spring, and in the summer. And there was a sense of cough people just thought thank goodness and governments having got through that desperate first phase of the disease themselves were relieved are never quite caught up. I mean the countries that have done this really really well, and I I think Taiwan is absolutely top of the class here have been good from the very beginning. and You perhaps feel at some other countries catching up in other places. In the United States, I think has to stand ups an example of this, the poor communication and the changes in rules reflect the politicization of the disease. There are too many people who have a stake in it working one way or another, and it's it's a tragedy. I think that the Centers for Disease Control and prevention which went into this pandemic as perhaps the most highly regarded public health body in the world has suffered from errors and poor leadership and denigration from the White House. That's that's just done nothing tool for the overrule effort. Are you hopeful are you more hopeful about the the post vaccine era and the experience today has made us all. Yes I think people, and I think people learn and learn more slowly than than baps they ought to but they do learn and you know I say the scientific response to this disease has been incredible and and that's something to feel cheerful about is just the even the best scientific response will take longer than people might like I did that time many people will suffer?

This Siege YouTuber Got Blacklisted For Life
"We got all sorts of allegations to get through but this story starts with the hot breach podcast which rogue nine co hosted alongside other siege youtubers get flanked and purdue Pete and as far as siege specific podcast go it was pretty popular. Everybody. Welcome to a very special episode of the hot breach podcast back in October of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred hot breach guys were invited by Ubisoft down to a balancing workshop that was being hosted in Barcelona. The idea was that they would come experience what the workshop had to say, and then record a podcast live in. Barcelona. The reality is this Barcelona trip was a disaster for everyone involved in actually led to the end of the hot bridge podcast because the very next day. All of Montreal based colleagues and many of the bustle based ones that I've been harassing her that I made her feel quote very uncomfortable and unsurprisingly making such a serious accusation against me turned an awkward situation into a complete nightmare. Now, almost a year after the trip rogue neither recently put a video talking about the harassment allegations made against him and how the Barcelona trip played a role in ultimately getting him blacklisted by UBISOFT. I will be sharing a story of how it was physically threatened at a rainbow six event by Ubisoft to staff member who was drunk off his face as well as details of defamation and match-fixing by another in the. Video, he also accuses to siege community developers of abusing their position, threatening him, and even allegedly match-fixing a charity Creator show match. We'll get to those accusations and a little bit but first, let's start with the harassment allegations and this Barcelona trip according to rogue nine in the months leading up to the Barcelona trip he struck up a conversation with ubisoft employees over DM's that quote got a bit personal and plying the things we're moving towards a romantic relationship last year between August and October things became a bit personal between a Ubisoft employees and me I'm not GonNa go into too much detail here, but it is important to briefly touch on this luckily. Almost all of our communications were over twitter DM's, and I still have the entire thread to prove exactly what happened these messages prove that she made the first advances and that she repeatedly encouraged me to keep in touch with her eventually rogue nine says that the woman he was talking to clarify the situation there wasn't going to be a romantic partnership and while he felt led on in was hurt and told her as much apparently according to him the whole thing was chalked up to a giant misunderstanding. Now, the woman wrote nine was talking to was the same woman that was going to be running the upcoming Barcelona balancing event which remember the hot. Breach guys were invited to, and well, Roque says that the Barcelona trip was awkward but ultimately harmless I've had multiple sources tell me a different story and sadly all of this happened right before a weeklong balancing workshop to Ubisoft Bacelona offices which she had organized and that I had committed to taking part in months earlier from what I was told, how get flagged shares his perspective in a recent video he uploaded wrote nine took the rejection pretty personally and it ruined the entire trip for the hot breach team. Once we arrived it was evident from like day one that it was going to be an issue like I would say that it was awkward. From the get go, there were awkward dinners with everyone involved rose co-hosted. Their best to distract him get flying says that road tried to confront her about the situation which wrote disputes. The point is this situation was terrible for everyone involved everything went from like awkward on a trip to just like dysfunction I. It was the attention was unbearable and it was so awful. Okay. It got to the point where like she very clearly like you had to like. The taxes that we took from the studio and back like you had to make sure that they weren't in the same taxi and stuff like that like it was it was awful like it was it consumed the entire trump. It went from rogue being consumed by who just putting a dark cloud over everything. Over, the course of that entire trip I never saw her do anything that I felt was unprofessional I never saw anything from any UBISOFT employees on that trip that I felt was unprofessional, and then the day the podcast was set to record with the employees featured as a prominent guest rogue nine allegedly tried to veto her because he was still upset about the entire situation. Well, they managed to get through the episode get says that rogue nines behavior on the trip caused him and prestige gop to actually. End The hot breach podcast after the Barcelona episode and to stop working with rogue nine. Altogether, we basically decided that point that we don't want to work with rogue anymore not long after that road nine received the email from ubisoft saying that they were banning him from ever working with us off again because of these alleged harassment allegations quote due to your conduct during the operator balancing sprint workshop and Barcelona. Spain, we regret to inform you that Ubisoft will no longer be working with you moving forward this. Includes future activation such as the London event taking place on October twenty fourth we have always will value the content you have created over the years that said we cannot and will not accept behavior directed towards UBISOFT staff that disrespectful dismissive or route, and shortly after get flanked, put his video sharing his perspective on the Barcelona bouncing trip road nine posted another tweet longer basically disputing a lot of the offense that get flank says happened at this point it's become a bit of a he said, he said. The crazy thing about this situation that you saw reached out to me with a statement long before I ever asked for comment, which to me says that they're taking this very seriously work of content creators is critical to the health and integrity of our communities and our relationship with these creators is built on mutual respect and professionalism at these principles are not respected. UBISOFT we'll take action deem appropriate in order to protect our employees, partners and the wider community and okay. So that wraps up the Barcelona and harassment.

Why is coronavirus not killing as many people?
"Phenomen. Some good news in Australia seems to be that the number of deaths from coronavirus is dropping and infect yesterday Victoria had no recorded deaths for the first time in about two months. So is this reduction in deaths here in Australia like sign of things to come or is it maybe just a bleep? What you're seeing here is the end of the second wave in Victoria and it's just fantastic that we're seeing the numbers of people dying going right down. As. You say it might go up and down a little bit but it will be very very low from now on the death right dropping the right of people dying compared to the number of people who have the disease at all I. Think you've got to look overseas for that Rob van in Australia and it's not easy to calculate. As we've said, many times on Corona cast because it depends on the number of people the proportion of the population being tested, and we really only know the accurate infection fatality rates from things like cruise ships you know the Ruby print says the diamond princess and so on. Because the of testing vary so much from country to country but people who've looked at this still think that the death rate is roundabout point four point five percent, and that's roughly what we've been talking about. Maybe point six percent in the past it's likely that it staying roughly the same but in some countries that does Lucas if it's dropping a fair bit even relation to the testing if you look as the number of cases is increasing, but the death threat doesn't seem to be following suit what's happening there well, one of the reasons is almost certainly that older people are changing their behavior. Keeping themselves to themselves. So while there might not there might be parties in Malaga in Spain and people are going out and having a good time. It tends to be younger people doing that and older people are tending to socially distance that seems to be the way it's going in Europe and elsewhere. So there is a change in behavior and people who are the most vulnerable. The other reason it's changing is that they've got much better at treating moderate to severe covid nineteen disease. So the nursing people in their TUMMIES, they're not jumping into ventilation as quickly and they're using decks methods on which. Reduces mortality rates and people who are who've got severe disease by about twenty percent. So things aren't getting better in terms of the treatment and I think all those things together have reduced the mortality rate from covid nineteen at considerable cost. So part of it is a true reduction in death right? If we're getting better at trading them but I mean people conscious look themselves up forever. How long are they going to keep this self correction for? Well, it's crystal ball stuff. We don't know that but there is a little bit of evidence now that that locking themselves up isn't working as well because. As young people get these large numbers infections in some of the countries they're starting to take them home and their parents and grandparents are starting to get the disease. So that low mortality rate that you're seeing now immediately may well not last. We actually had a question on this from rob which we've kind of covered a little bit but I'm just in the interests of closing the loop rubs asking with the numbers of positive cases in France. Spain and so on. Increasing rapidly and few debts did the first wave just kill all the vulnerable are we seeing case Democ now instead of a pandemic? No. It's it's certainly didn't. You if you just look even in Sweden where it was really bad h care homes, luckily, it did not kill all the vulnerable there. Still plenty vulnerable vulnerable people alive and remember vulnerability can just. Being over seventy or eighty, and there is another issue here too, which is the accuracy of death certificates, and whether we're attributing all the deaths to covid nineteen people who actually died of covid nineteen. So definitely, not an excuse to let our guard down and it could will see an uptick and that's the feature of this pandemic is that you can't relax can't change what you do because it will come back to bite you Israel thought the. Rebound. There were invulnerable obviously Spanish French, and others, and they're paying the price for
Philippines deports US Marine in transgender killing
"His anger in the Philippines after President Duterte a pardon the US Marine who had bean serving time in prison for killing a transgender woman in 2014 Joseph Scott Pemberton has been released on deported just over halfway through his 10 year prison sentence for the killing of Jennifer Lord. I've been hearing about the crime and the impact of the pardon from Nomi, Fontana's Thie, executive director of Gender and Development advocates, Filipinas and LGBTQ rights organization in the country. On the night of October. 11 2013, which was a Saturday transform and Jennifer Louder, met the American Joseph Scott Pemberton at a bar. They agreed through check in a motel a little over half an hour later, the US Marine leaves, and when the motel clerk checks in on Jennifer Loudy, he finds her Dead with her had in the toilet and her neck blackened with strangulation marks, and apparently she died from drowning. So because of that, wass as fiction by drowning, and he was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Yes, A year later, after a trial was held, Scott Pemberton was convicted. Ah, home inside in spite of the charges brought against him being murder, So it's AA degree lower. Murder and he was in jail for a six through 12 years, although the maximum for home so I could be up to 20 years, but he appealed his sentence. So it was shortened to just 10 years. So I'm here. He would have served just a little over five years and now he's being pardoned. Released. Sent back to the United States. What is your reaction to that? This is something that we do not accept. This is something that we will mouth primitive and something that we will never, ever forget, because the legacy of Jennifer loudest keys is that it is the first case in the Philippines at the successfully put an American serviceman was committed a crime in Philippine soil in jail. Convicted and jailed in the Philippians. So this means for almost a century that the Philippines has been a colony and in a new colony of the United States since Spain, which first colonizers handed our country over to them in 80 98. So many American soldiers have committed crimes in our country and have never been convicted, have never been put in jail. And what what is the significance of this for the trans community? For the trans community. This sounds are loud and clear message that the president is an enemy of the LGBT of the trans community and the LGBT Q our community in the Philippines and that in spite of his pronouncement that the president has been vocal about supporting LGBT Q. I writes in the Philippines, but this action proves didn't understand what LGBT Q I rights are and this interrogates his claims that he is a friend of the community. Yes, because his record is pretty Good, isn't it? When he was vice mayor of Davao City, he encouraged a council to pass anti discrimination ordinance that protected the LGBT community. He said that he was against bullying gay people. He has Made other comments in support of the the LGBT community. But you say his actions speak of something different. Yes, and those actions in the past or his record as a chief of Ah, off our city here in the Philippines? Is this a ruse? For me? It's It's really a Machiavellian. It's a very cunning politician, so he does things that will make him Popular to the people. But isn't it possible this? This is about broader diplomatic relationship with the United States, one that he has said different things about but ultimately he's decided that pardoning this American soldier was the right thing for the Philippines. We don't know for sure. And at this point everything will these speculative because as things stand it, for example, that the Democrats win and the NC Trump, who is friends with their and Where does that leave him in with Americans, But at the same time, we also feel that for the many human rights abuses that have been committed under his term, the president now has to find allies in the community of nations so that after he steps down, he will have those powerful friends to rely on for support because Certainly he will be held accountable for all the human rights abuses that happened under his term.

Brexit: Government refuses to drop plans to override parts of Brexit deal
"The U. K. left the European Union in January. It was possible to detect a faint sigh of relief even among those British people who thought the endeavor various combinations of reckless vainglorious, foolhardy, petulant, and self destructive at least and at last it was imagined. We now knew what we'd be dealing with a transition period some sort of new deal and a reduction of turbulence. The UK government this. Week announced it had other ideas planning to override sections of the withdrawal agreement. It had itself negotiated signed and won election on the back of joining me to attempt to identify what fresh hell. This is Naomi O'Leary. Your corresponded at the Irish Times and lands price former director of communications at ten Downing Street Naomi with all g recognition that there may be a number of answers to this question of varying degrees of decorum. What is the UK's government doing? Well, my understanding is that it's introducing an internal markets bill that will unpick. A couple of aspects that were agreed with the EU in order to avoid a border join across the arden. So this would include. Customs arrangements on state aid agreements on I mean by the UK's own admission because they rolled agreement was passed in his comments on signed by those sides it's international law. So this would be breaking international by their own admission. Let's. The as ninety points out the UK government has admitted that would be breaching international law. They did specify that it was a very limited and specific way. So that's fine. Apparently It's one of the great questions attending, Boris? Johnson. Administration. Is there a strategy discernible or are they just winging this? Was this always the plan basically? I think has to assume there is some sort of strategy but quite deliberately, it is so opaque that those looking in from the outside, find it very hard to discern what it is. That we may come to the end of this year to the end of December and look back and say, well, actually, there wasn't the strategy and they would just blundering white. You giving a very good impression of simply plunder their way through, but they are not stupid. And we assume that there is method to their madness. Now, about methods may simply to be as disruptive as possible this stage in in. In order to Let's try to secure the deal again today still with the intention of trying to get the deal to give you a new one. That I've spoken to or listen to seems to be able to determine which it is still time. That's it. It's never wanted to deal that looks away play the of European Union. They deliver take disrupted to the prospects of deal because frankly. Happy to go. Without one. But? What has the response to this development being in I mean we'll talk about the rest of the EU shortly but in Ireland in particular because for obvious reasons island republic, there was always going to be more affected by the fact of Brexit than any other EU country. I think initially an many people struggle to believe that this was really what the UK was doing that they were going to go through with this because you know a lot of figures in the civil service in government in Dublin have very long relationships with people in the UK with which have been constructive. kind of goes against the their experience of Britain so far to a large extent up. So I, think there was initially hesitant to overreact to kind of see, but once the bill was made public all. The really have reacted with shock because this this way more than the sort of Saber rattling that everyone expected in terms of talking up no deal on shouting might sovereignty and everything that was kind of priced in this really fundamentally to the heart of the. Western order. People don't. Respect international law. It kind of puts in question a lot of the assumptions that the current global order is based on. I'm just to name a few for example, the fact Gibraltar is still in UK Homs let's based on an international treaty that even though Spain doesn't like it. has accepted. And that's just one small example, the UK itself relies on this concept that. International treaties can't unilaterally changed by one side lawfully, it relies on it all the time. Lunch just to elaborate on that point of Naomi's might even if this is just a slightly devil-may-care negotiating gambling might have effects in the real world. Niamey mentions there the treaty of you tracked onto which spying grudgingly ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to the United. Kingdom. But also within the last twenty, four hours, one almost admires the bras neck. We've seen the UK's foreign secretary reminding Iran of its international obligations. vis-a-vis, its nuclear treaty might this actually have real world impacts whether it is Gibraltar. Iran Hong Kong. A number of other places. I've been I think it might very well, not necessarily any other states would see this as a green light for them to reach national all all treaties that they have signed with the United Kingdom and other countries but set you going forward when it comes to trying to foam which agreements or whether it's trade agreements or security related agreements or whatever else it might be that the kingdom will be seen as an unreliable untrustworthy partner those. If, we say in terms that we are willing to break traditional goal this time that why should get any time in the future so we will see threats from the United States and. about about this, being a very significant roadblock to a free trade agreement with those countries. Now, we have just signed one with. Japan. He's just been announced that the United States go to preacher is leaving with Japan. It probably doesn't amount to us not which is government with like this. Super believe. But the standings of the United to International. has already been severely damaged, and that's why there's some very very senior figures in the Conservative Party former prime ministers, and little house. but the house tested deposits as well. Who say this is a statue. Niamey talks trade talks ideas due to resume on Monday, but especially bearing in mind. What Lance was just saying about the UK, turning itself into an increasingly on reliable interlocutor, and that's on top of the last few years of just extraordinary nonsense the has had to deal with is there a possibility or indeed? May We already have arrived at that point of the European Union basically losing patients with this entire thing? Obviously, the EU as twenty seven nations is probably more equipped to deal with the chaos of no deal than the UK is one nation. Right now, it's a bit of a game of chicken because I think neither side wants to be the one to call ice because they don't want to take the blame i. But yet they eat. You has given UK basically an ultimatum of the end of the month to reverse this plan. or they say that they will take legal recourses available under the withdrawal agreement I'm which include fines and things like that to try and bring the UK back in line Basically, they've been saying all year the an agreement relies on the past agreements being enacted and that's the fundamental trust is essential for anything being agreed and the reason they've been saying that I think because there was always a bit of a suspicion that something like this could. Happen though nobody wanted to believe it because the likes of ours Johnson on his cabinet ministers would occasionally say things that didn't make sense. The didn't fish with what they had agreed thing that there wouldn't be taxes on when they would be in the Irish Sea So I think the EU is going to wait and the they're they're not pulling out of the the talk. Yes. But the chance of them succeeding I, think in everyone's view with extremely spam at this point.

But there's no baggage with Edgar like there are like there is what those other steroid guys. So in the end, it's a very tricky situation.

You're not getting so Tim when you look at this hall of fame class aside for Mariano getting one hundred percent of the vote. What else stands out to your mind that history will remember to make this particular class special? Well, Mike Messina should have been in his first year eligible for me pitches entire career in steroid era. He pitches entire career the American. League East a D H league. He pitched two-thirds of his games that tiny little ballpark in Baltimore and still one to seventy games with a winning percentage that only ten guys have ever matched with that many wins. That's how great he was one of the smartest players have been around and ROY halladay to go in on the first ballot. I thought was wonderful again over two hundred wins with a winning percentage that high like ten other guys have done that also and one of the great BULLDOGS ever. I wrote the story it's on dot com now, but they were gonna take him out of the game after eight innings, and no one takes ROY halladay out because he wants to finish and nobody wants to finish anymore.

"Teams fighting each other and one coach bringing everyone together next Spain Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz. What's there? Don't always get along. Maybe we usually get along. We don't always get along. But I'm glad to know that we're better teammates than the blues. Are that's all I'm saying it doesn't take much the Saint Louis blues. And I don't know if everybody's seeing this video at this point. But the blues did something we don't see very often in hockey, particularly they went at it and practice, and when I say they went at it. I can't stress enough like they brawled in practically they give you the sort of practice fight that would make an entire arena. Go nuts. It was a full on full-fledged battle of a fight. I mean fisticuffs that I haven't seen in a long time in a fight for the blues during practice. Yeah. And it, and you could tell it had the same passion and stupidity of a game fight because there was a lot of barehanded punching of helmets. If you're in practice, and you want to and you wanna fight your teammate. And there's any Monica restraint that still within you. You're gonna stop punching him in the helmet with your bare hand, but if you've lost it entirely, which it's very clear these gentlemen did. You're just gonna keep wailing on that helmet. Even as you feel your hands starting to swell and Zach Sanford, and Robert bore two'social clearly not big fans of each other right now. Well, and you know, I think it's a little bit of the frustration from a terrible season for St Louis. Oh, yeah. Oiling over and you reach a point where they always say the training camp. You just wanna hit somebody else in the NFL? And I think there's a point me in the NHL where you just wanna hit everybody when you've lost eight of eleven you're sick of hitting other teams. You wanna hit each other? And I can't blame the emotion. I love the fact that they care so much about where it's going, but that's probably the wrong way to work it out. Right. Like, you're the you're not gonna make your team better through all of it. We I mean, we can argue about what leadership is but. We certainly know it's not knocking the snot out of one of your teammates during a practice. Right. And we do a lot of trying to use revisionist history on stuff like this. Or at least try to put a spin on it. Maybe it will give them the spark. They're looking for right. And that sometimes happens in a game when a guy engages with an opposing player, I don't know if we have much precedent for dudes fighting each other in practice, and then finding a coup by balance that propels them to victory. Well, the pools are also trying to find Coon by balancing. And I'm not sure where this comes from. I thought it was a, you know, this is the modern MBA that we live in with all the petty after the king's just whooped up on them. I love the quote, apparently as they were walking off the court one of the king's players was heard saying. Uh-huh. Another two and a half practice for them tomorrow. Half hour practice. Yeah. Yeah. Looking up at the score. I mean, this is this is where we are. And that's after a one hundred eighty nine law. So things are gotten better. I mean one away and eighty nine that's better. Right. No. No, no. That's that's doesn't doesn't help. At all. I'm more in just intrigued by the Jim Boylan quotes their new head coach not interim potentially already installed for next year.

Now we, we do have a slightly different team, and I think it's actually a a little bit improved to be honest with you. We made some huge additions down the stretch with Presley on a sooner bullpen. We made we traded for Garrett Cole. So I think I think we have about this complete a pitching staff as you'll see in the game of baseball. And then offensively I think, is where we learn the most from our postseason run last year. I think I think the guys that that were in that offense that are still in the offense learnt so much of the difference between regular season abets and postseason bats. And I think we'll be able to apply that that into this year series Friday, it's going to be kluber the Verlinden the postseason actually starts tonight. How much do you pay attention to what's going on in other series other than you own? I'll pay attention to the American League. I mean, I'll watch the game tonight because we're not playing, but I'm I mostly just pay attention. The American League. See, see how teams are doing. But I I, if I had to make a prediction, I would. I would predict that we would be playing. The Milwaukee Brewers in the World Series this year. Until this very. McCain, Nicole's of cubs fans. So now she is very, very mad. Hey, Alex, you're doing great stuff on the field, but more importantly, you're doing amazing things off the field being a part of this. We really appreciate your time. Thanks for all that you do and best of luck throughout the playoffs. Thanks for having me on guys and everybody. Go ahead and tweet out that hashtag HR for HR..

"Now by speaking Astros, third baseman, Alex bregman, Alex, thanks for joining us. Mantilla mobile is bringing back home runs for hurricane recovery, five thousand bucks for every home run hit in the playoffs. Plus one dollar for every post on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag HR for HR they pick the right guy to rep this Alex. What makes this 'cause close to you buddy? Well, last year we saw firsthand here in Houston with the hurricane and everyone that was affected, and we saw how we were able to kind of raise the city up when it was going through some tough times. So since then for about the last year partner of t. mobile and team Rubicon and able to try to help out in any way we can with with hurricane relief. And t mobile is done on believable job with home, runs for hurricane relief. And hopefully this year we can hit some home runs and raise more money to help these families that were affected. Well, obviously you've gone hot and help that. 'cause in Ben helping the cause for the Astros throughout the month of October, what's really been the key for you? Well, I think I think just really being on being on this team with the the great teammates that I have been able to pick out to as brain craze brain. And you know when when when this offense gets role in you wanna keep up and it's fun. And hopefully while I know for a fact that we're back back to full strength now everyone's healthy and it's going to be a fun run. Hopefully eleven more wins to are are back to back World Series championships fall in the AL MVP conversation. I don't know as actually the first time I've been asked that trying on on on record, so I don't know, depends on depends on what you look at. Definitely say Mookie Betts, believable year, Mike trout, an unbelievable year. So somewhere in there with those two. Well, I think we should just lobby for you. I mean, it's tumble of you, Alex, the humility. I, I want to get back to something. You mentioned though. When you talked about this, 'cause for you and what Houston sort of went through last year. It caught the nation's attention with you guys going through that run when Houston was going through so much for this year. Obviously, you know that the reasons he bias of that, it just it's not as prevalent in everyone's mind. So how do you sort of recapture that level of emotion going into this playoff often hotel you? One thing. We one hundred and three games this year. So we were able to secure home-field home field advantage for the first round and. I promise you when when when the guy's not clubhouse feel the electricity of our fans in the stands on on game one when Verlinden takes on kluber, I think I think we're well. We'll feel right back at home where where we, where we feel very comfortable in the postseason and in that atmosphere and we'll, we'll remember Houston strong for sure. Seeing teams that when the World Series one year sort of have the the World Series hangover the next year you guys you one hundred and three games, but you still had to sort of got it out and fight it out with Oakland. There was the points in August where you guys had that ten game stretch. We lost eight including two of three to Oakland during that time. What did you guys learn about yourselves at the team. I'll tell you this team. We we. We did have a World Series hangover. We we only one hundred three games. I think we're capable of winning one hundred twenty one hundred twenty five to be honest with you. If with that's how that's how confident we are in in in this team when we're pulse strength and well, two, they went down. Correa went down, Springer went down and and we we managed to win a hundred and three games. So the Oakland Athletics, they had a, they had a magical run at a division title, but they they got, they got a tough one with the Yankees coming up. So I think I think our division is is ours for the fertile for the future. And I think we're gonna. We're gonna own LS for awhile.

"Twitter feed at Spain and Fitz at Chason fits at Rb underscore m. r. s to get to Nicole and look part of the conversation that everybody wants to have right now has to do with the buccaneers coming down to earth. Last night. Ryan Fitzpatrick was Fitch tragic in the first half tried to bring the magic back late. You like the Fitch, tragic line, you thank you very much it. It was not pretty and then in the end. But in the end we all thought there was going to be some magical way that he could pull it off. It doesn't happen. The bucks lose the game. And now we get into the curious window because they've told us the organization said, hey. We know who starting, but we're not saying anything, and we're all trying to speculate on whether it'll be James Winston back from his suspension that comes in and starts or whether you leave Fitzpatrick in so Nicole, where you on this one, why would you start gave us Winston? I mean, legitimately, why would you start? It's not like you're bringing back. I realized he was your number one pick a couple years ago, but it's not like you're bringing back Jay miss Winston that has the skill set and the consistency of a Tom Brady or an Aaron Rodgers, or drew Brees, or even an Alex Smith or Kirk with a k. cousins. Right? You're bringing back the guy who's been up and down at best the last three years. And he hasn't been with your team since the last game of the preseason. And he's really like, you're going to go away from the guy who's been doing really good things for you. Yes, they didn't win last night, but the first three weeks come on. It's magic. Well, I have James Winston, so there's that, oh, well, I mean, okay. That's fair. That's a fair point. I, I think there is sort of a curve though, right? You have to think about the fact that he's been away from the game. The fact that James is somebody who realistically has struggled with accuracy at times in his in his career, comes back to the game after being away from it for three weeks, he hasn't thrown any passes to any of the guys that are out there. He hasn't had any practice time practice time is limited as it is when you get into the regular season. So he's been out of the rhythm of everything and he's gonna be taking on a bears defense that frankly is great. So do you really wanna put James Winston in a position where a rusty James that has to be picked up off the ground all night by Khalil Mack all day by Khalil Mack? I wouldn't. I wouldn't No, know. no, I just I, it doesn't. It doesn't make sense to me. You stick with the guy who's at least been? Yes. Yesterday was a little ugly, particularly in the first half with all of the interceptions. But Fitzpatrick I, I really struggle getting Fitzpatrick out because it just wants to come outfits magic. But he's, he's been the guy for the first three weeks of this season that let me numbers were there and he has. He has a good chemistry there with the receivers, and I just it. It may not be the hottest hand because they didn't win last night, but ride the hot hand. And I think that the writing is a little bit on the wall in Tampa. There mean I feel a little bit like they're prepared to make a break from Jamie's. I mean, where's where's the sign? 'age if you're down in Tampa and you're looking at the stadium, where's the sign? It's not there. That's an interesting point because you're right..

"So this seems to be stemming from some doubt that he is injured. Is this a I Leonard team meeting situation where guys think he should be out there and that he's. Making this up. I mean, I know our own Jesse Rogers who covers the cubs, says, an MRI hasn't showed anything's and even Darvish admitted today. And one of his better interviews that he's kind of a mystery to him what he's feeling and why you still hurting. I, it surprises me that this cubs team would question his desire to be out there. I've been part of the their series, the Darvish on the whole to the cubs clubhouse is still a mystery. They don't know him really well. He signs his big money deal, and you expect him to go out and produce on the mound. And that hasn't happened. And, and this is what happens every time, any athlete signs a huge contract and doesn't initially live up to experts. Asians, guys start to go. All right. Is this guy for real, but as far as the personal attacks or personal questions about his health, I'm sure that the cubs players are still trying to figure out all right. How well do we know this guy and and is it something that that we can even talk to him about at this point? So such frustration is felt within. In the fan base for certain the differences. The Rick Sutcliffe still talked to plenty of people within the organization on a regular basis and has a much closer relationship with those people than most analysts would throughout the game. Yeah, we, of course, you know, have to wonder if he's got a the year of somebody who, or I guess that they that, that he's the one listening to somebody in the cubs organization, whether that's a teammate or a manager or a front office, who's just frustrated with the whole situation. And you mentioned that when you've got a deal as big as the one Darvish God, there's going to be so much more of a spotlight on you to produce the. That's that's just part of the business. And there's been a, it's been a rocky road since the beginning with Darvish teammates saying that you Darvish feels like Chicago fans hate him because of social media people absolutely attacking him with every bad outing and then the flu Darvish when people made fun of him for being ill. So it has been a rocky road and certainly commentary from Sutcliffe not going to make him feel any better. Here's a little bit more of what Rick said on Waddle and Silvy when you feel pain after one page, why? Why do you continue to throw it? Just honestly sounds like more of the same to me. I I don't. I don't expect anything out of end this year. I really don't. You know the the plan was I talked with pitching coach, Jim Hickey earlier today. The plan was for Darvish to go down there supposed to throw thirty pitches on the side. Yeah, it's. It's a interesting conundrum for the cubs and Nick. I never want to question a guy's heart, and so that's what makes this tough for me. I'm I, I would love there to be a little bit more information about what's going on in Chicago. And of course hamels arriving. Maybe we'll help old teammates..

"Darvish you've, of course heard about the a. rod comments. Well, these take it another level get into that next Spain and fits. We were just talking to Jerry Crasnick about about all the moves at the trade deadline comes. Got a little jump on the deadline by adding Cole hamels. And of course that's slightly offsetting the acquisition of you Darvish that has not yet panned out for the cubs injuries, plaguing his season and just not not good pitching when he is available and Nick, we all have have heard about a rod, making some comments on Sunday night baseball about you Darvish they, they were showing shots of Darvish rehabbing an hanging out in the cubs dugout and Rodriguez kinda said he should be in Mesa. He should be working out a somewhere else. He's a distraction. And when you've got a guy, that's got a big money deal like that, and he's hanging out in the training room and watching video and hanging out in the dugout. He's a distraction. He should instead be in Arizona getting treated, even though it's perfectly fine within his contract to be getting treatment and working in Chicago. Ago, so era a pretty critical of you Darvish and sort of hinting at it being a guy who has lost respect in the clubhouse because of his decisions during this rehab and you Darvish agent coming out and kind of attacking a rod saying, he's not a guy who should be talking about it. He certainly is a guy who knows about losing respect in a clubhouse, right, Nick. But what do you make first of all before we get to Rick Sutcliffe piling on of the kind of interaction between a rotten and use agent, sir. This is what happens in the world of sports when your client is being attacked on a public national level in it. And when you're making a ton of money when you're making a ton of money and you're not living up to that contractor. And the other key part to this is in in this goes back to two last week as well. Tim, Kirk, John, our colleague here at ESPN. He made similar comments on the Waddle and Silvy program on ESPN. One thousand here in Chicago, basically saying that this is becoming more of a distraction within the clubhouse and players while they're not making their feelings public on that, you know, people are starting to look around and go, all right. What are we going to get from this guy? Or are we going to get anything from this guy to begin with? So when you start to hear those rumblings and then a rod. Obviously talked to whomever he spoke to in the cubs clubhouse and and made his feelings public on it as well. When you start to hear that everything blows up to a higher level and that's where we are now in this kind of standoff, between some in the media, you Darvish Darvish his agent in his production or lack thereof on the field. Well, we, we heard the reaction to a rod, not as many reacting to Rick Sutcliffe because his commentary mostly locally here in Chicago. I say here even though I'm in LA right now, but you know what I mean? And let's listen to a little of what Rick Sutcliffe who is a part of the cubs in sort of an ambassador role. Is that right? He's working with them in an ambassador said to Waddle and Silvy on ESPN one thousand. Feel pain in there, but I know that the cubs have done everything they possibly can. They've looked at that in every single way possible. I know that they they had the physical before they signed him. There's just a lot of things that go into that too. Where in my mind right now, the signing of Cole hamels is we're not even counting on Darsch he, you know, he go ahead and he can go home right now. We, we, we know what we've gotta do. We don't count on him for anything over the course of this year. I don't know. Maybe you can come back and and pitch out of the bullpen late in the year. I just don't know any of that. Yeah. So he he kind of, you know, not particularly invested in believing in what Darvish has to offer. I'm just kind of fascinated for Dell because I never liked criticism of guys for injury. You can't prevent that..

"This feels like a team that has done everything at every step of the way to make themselves have a better chance to get through that final game of the year and come out on top. What do you make the move they made today? Yeah, you know, it's funny because I was in touch with the dodgers person when the Machado thing was going on, and I remember saying, hey, if you don't get Machado, would Bryant dosier be sort of a good plan b, you know, a guy who could go off in the last two months and it's sixteen home runs, and the person said, yeah, you know, that might be something that if we don't get Manny, you know, could be a fallback well, who would know, but they want up getting both of them. You know, which to me is a pretty big coup. I mean, obviously you'd like to get an impact starting pitcher, but there just weren't any of them out there so for Chris Archer. And so to get a second. Basement of Doges caliber Amini Machado who is having a huge impact on their, you know, mentally there and and just the product they put out and the lineup they put out and you know, actually the veteran guy, you put him in the National League West and those bigger parks. He's gonna help. He's not a huge impact guy, but hell help eat some inning. So on a good trade down the line result all around for inner Friedman in his group in Los Angeles, jury, aside from the flurry of moves, at the end of today's tread line trade deadline, the big news in the last twenty four hours was the Astros decision to to trade for Roberto. As soon as you talk to people around the rest of major league baseball. What are their feelings after the Astros front office statement about zero tolerance for domestic abuse in trying to give people a second chance in the process? You know, I think. Pharrell mayors from other teams. Probably think you know what better them than us. I mean, it's just this is a headache. Nobody wants. And this is a clubhouse that you know, you could drive a wedge in that clubhouse your fan base. I just think that Jeff Luneau had to think this thing through long and hard before he did it and he seemed comfortable with it. But boy, a lot of other people, darling. And you know, I was in that group that thought, hey, you know, they, if they needed a closer go on and get Zack Brenton. I mean, the guy is a model citizen, you know, he's, he's been through the wars. He's he, he could be closer for you. You know, they wound up getting Ryan Presley who's a nice arm, but this to me is just one of those things where, boy, you're a winning team and I, it's just a huge issue. I mean, he's gonna have to go before a clubhouse of guys. Some of whom like Justin Burland have been very outspoken about domestic violence, and you know he, he's gonna meet with a tough. Crowd. So I'm not really sure if Jeff moon out, forget out all the internal clubhouse dynamics, but it's going to hit them in the face pretty soon pretty hard different than some of the other times we've seen this too is that that trial is ongoing murders, still information that could be revealed in that trial and punishment. That could be levied criminally. So it'll be a, it'll be fascinating to see how that goes and affects the team that's coming off World Series win. Hey, thanks so much for your time.

"Performance line where Jerry Crasnick ESPN MLB insider joins us after a frenzy of activity at the trade deadline and Jerry. Let's let's talk about the moves today of all of the moves that you saw go down just before the deadline, which impressed you the most or do you think will affect a team's chances? The most. Well, you there? Yes. Oh, sorry. I'm well the one I think that I was surprised the most by think was the pirates picking up Chris Archer, you know, he's a guy who just such an interesting case because he's been the face of Tampa Bay and his alarm contract. He's not a guy who's going to be a free agent this winter. He's, he signed for two thousand through two thousand twenty one at very reasonable price. So you know, I don't know how much of an impact it's going to have immediately, but for them to trade away, Austin meadows and Tyler glass. Now too big prospects and meadows is still a kid that people expect really big things of to get Chris Archer to be the face of their franchise. For the next few years, I thought was the boldest move of of all of them. We saw, obviously, Atlanta picking up Kevin Godsman from Baltimore late and Milwaukee picking up Jonathan scope, sorta picking through their character of that. What remains of that Orioles roster? Pretty impact moved to Jerry. We know the moves that were made. The biggest move that wasn't made was Bryce Harper stain in DC with the nationals. There were some rumors about whether he was on the block or not. And Mike Rizzo comes out and says he staying here, do the national still believe strongly that that they can keep Harper for the long haul after this winter. Well, I'm not entirely sure about that. I do think that the sense though is look, they're six or seven out, you know, behind Philly in Atlanta, too young teams. And I think the chances of them keeping him probably better if they keep him and he has a big couple of final month leaves them to the postseason they make a run. I mean, that would be a feel good story at the end. I think dump them now and and pretty much give up on the race is not the kind of signal that Mike Rizzo ever likes to send. I mean, he's Syria, you know him, I think, right, he's he's Chicago guy. He's a, he's gonna fight till his last breath and you know. So I just don't think that was ever real serious consideration even though people mentioned Harper rumors. And finally, he just felt compelled to come up this morning and squash out stuff because we're starting to get out of hand a little bit. So you know, I just think they, they just need him to start playing better and get this free agency out of his head and and give Philly. And Atlanta better remnant given them because they've been a huge disappointment. So far rizzo's last breath with the NATs might come sooner if he keeps trying to fight through situations that don't seem to have a reasonable end successful. And I guess so I, it's interesting at one point I was one hundred percent against the Harper traded nam very concerned. They're gonna lose him for nothing and look back on. Well, yeah. I mean, look you. The thing is whoever gives them the biggest stuck Scott Boerse's agent and whoever's gonna you know, pony up and give them the biggest contract is gonna get them probably. So there is much of a team in the mix for that as anybody, and you know, they can always get a draft pick if they, you know, from a qualifying offer, and he goes somewhere else. But I honestly don't think that re-signing him really makes a whole heck of a lot of difference whether he's there or not. You know, in the winter once the money starts flying, the teams that are willing to pay the teams that are going to get these guys. Jerry Crasnick ESP. MLB insider on the shell Pennzoil performance.

"But I understand there are a lot of people and Ramona. Makes it very good point. You don't wanna doubt LeBron James look at what he's been able to do the last seven or eight years, but guess what the Golden State Warriors were not in the Eastern Conference, and the Golden State Warriors aren't going anywhere anytime. Soon on top of the fact that the Houston Rockets still feel like they have a legit claim that if Chris Paul doesn't get hurt that they would have been in the finals this season and they can still do better. They feel this year than they did a year ago. So I know that everybody wants to believe that LeBron can take whoever is around him and make them significantly better. And as a group, they can get to the next phase which would be the finals yet. Again, that's not gonna happen this year. The Lakers aren't good enough and certainly not in a conference that has one of the best teams we've seen in NBA history in the warriors with all their guys still in there. On Nick Fidel filling in for fits that Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio, the espionage and Sirius XM channel eighty. While I set up the question and I'll give you the answer of what he said to to Rachel Nichols about spending another year in quote, unquote, his prime building a team with the Lakers and one of the one of the things he said, I found interesting. He said, I don't even look at it like that because I don't feel like this is one of the last years of my prime. I think that's another statistic number and I've always been part of beating the odds in life being around my kids allow it gives me even more and more time in my youth. So he starts out and then he gets into, I don't think this is rebuilding. We've got an opportunity to something blah, blah, blah. But. Listen being around your kids may make you feel young. It doesn't make you NBA young, right? There's a big difference between I'm light hearted and then watch Dora the explorer and topics role, and I can get my entire body off the ground and dunk on fools anymore. You know what I mean? Like he in some of his answers surrounding this Lakers team, whether it's the compatibility of all the island of misfit toys guys, there signing to their ability to win a championship to how young you feel. He's reaching a lot and I don't blame him. He's got to find answers, but some of them are suspect. So we're going to look back on this year with LeBron moving to the Lakers with the roster they built around him in this is going to be the year where reality hits him harder than it has in a long time and hit him with that west conference. That's what's going to hit them. Right? It's Redel for Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio coming up. Next, we'll talk to Jerry Crasnick about all the big moves at MLB, trade deadline, Spain, and Fitz.

"But I guess the question. Nick is, do we view LeBron's prime the same way as everyone else? Because we always argue, father time is undefeated, are we making up new rules for the Tom Brady's and the LeBron James the world, or are we going to find that his expectations for his own body might be off when things finally start to slow down, he might be making career decisions based on a time line that isn't gonna play out, Sarah, and this is actually a topic I've talked to LeBron about as well in the last few months and that he feels like he can change that clocked that every athlete, in this case, every professional basketball player has he thinks he can bridge it so that he can get multiple max contracts. In this case, a different mex- contract at what will be h thirty four than anybody else has ever seen because he can still pointed this high of a level and that's great. And it's great to have that kind of confidence, but. But he will not be good enough for that long at this level in won't be much different than what we've seen from anybody in the past. I understand how unbelievable he is, but LeBron James is still human in to your point at some point in the near future to me, he's going to have to realize that he can't do everything that we're so used to seeing him do over time the Lakers. And that's why there's so much pushback on this roster. The roster surrounding LeBron to start this season just is not good enough, and this is part of what Rachel get into. And I, I give her a ton of credit for asking that question to fetal away Bron, but it shows the trust that's built up between journalists and player in this relationship. But I never thought in a million years LeBron James would redshirt season in that he would go to a new team. Believing that he didn't have a chance to win. And I know what he's trying to say publicly. Let's be real clear here though. The Lakers have no chance to win a title next season. And for LeBron who has been so many finals in a row, that reality is gonna hit home a lot harder in March and April than it does right now at the end of July when everything is still fresh and everybody's still happy, I agree with you that I don't think they've got a good shot of winning Ramona Shelburne was on sports nation with me today. And she said, I'm not in the habit of doubting LeBron says, if he doesn't view this as a building year, I believe him and you look at all the things he did in the east with a ragtag bunch of players. I just don't agree that that is going to work at the same way in the west and alsi grant a Granderson said, you know, you look at the guys that he's adding to him. These are proven winners. These are shooters these guys who can create their own shot. Yes, that's true. But a lot of the guys that got sent to the Cavs midway through last year were being praised for their. Offensive abilities, their defensive abilities, their ability to spread the floor and shoot the three before they got there. And once they got to Cleveland, all they did was get ragged down for not being effective and they went back to the guys that had been on the roster all along. Is that because they choked or is it because sometimes playing in LeBron's orbit makes people not know their role. There's no real buying into a system there floating around trying to do whatever they can't based around what LeBron is doing and aren't able to play the game that they expect or think they're supposed to. I'm curious to see how this works out with some strong minded veterans. Maybe they'll hold true to the system a little bit better, but we'll LeBron buy into it. I think that makes a big difference when we're looking at what the realistic expectations for this team are not only the veterans in this case, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo ball, Kyle Kuzma. How will the younger guys try to adjust to what he's going to do in the style he's going to want to put into place..

"I think it's very likely that despite his conversation with Rizza where he got all those assurances that does not mean that there were no conversations being there's no question sir, and that as an onlooker who is followed Harper's coming to the league, that is most telling me that they let the rumors play up for awhile wasn't like Rizzo came out and said, instantly none. He's not going anywhere, which leads me to believe that the nationals at least are discussing and thinking about the possibility that Harper may indeed walk at season's end and they may get nothing forum.

It wasn't just about the school. It was about as moved to Los Angeles. And what's next? And one of the noteworthy questions from Rachel to LeBron was one that kind of free Dell. I actually watched and cringed a little bit mainly because Rachel was sitting what two feet away from LeBron James. When she asked him, you're going to be thirty four during this season. How do you feel about one of the last years. Of your prime being spent on a rebuilding year. And I was like, oh, no, lookout, Rachel. You just said his prime is ending soon, right? And that's something that LeBron doesn't seem to have had to reckon with in the same way that other players have. He is about to be thirty four. And yet if you look at the statistics, if you look at his health is ability to play full seasons. Last year was the first time he played every game of the regular season plays deep into the postseason the Olympics, everything else, and his body has not betrayed him..

"He has never lived up to that high level promise that so many people thought would happen when he was with the raise for all those years. Now he gets a fresh start going into the last couple of months of the regular season. And if you're Pittsburgh, so often they kind of fall apart down the stretch end or make those moves. To sell off that we mentioned. Now you've got this piece and you have him under team control for the next few years, which will help you rotation. But you've got this piece who can help push you potentially into the playoffs and for a team, a fan base that has been starving for years and years to not only get there but make some noise once they get in there. Again, this is a good day should be celebrated its neck Redel filling in for fits Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio, the espionage and Sirius XM channel eighty. Cameron may into the Mariners also caught my eye. We will talk to Jerry Crasnick in about twenty minutes about the biggest deals at the trade deadline where he thinks the teams got a significantly better where teams may be missed an opportunity. A couple of notable names, not traded today. Matt Harvey staying put Bryce Harper. Also, Adrian BELTRAN, Adam Jones. So a couple of guys that maybe there were rumors about them heading out and Bryce Harper. The biggest among them free down. What's interesting is when you hear. Here, someone report sources are telling me that the nationals are open and willing to sell. And then after the fact someone from the nationals comes straight out, not through a source and says, no, no, no. He's staying around to me that immediately points to they were looking for what we like to call the godfather deal. They were looking for someone to come bearing all of their top prospects, throw everything at the nets, and then it would be worth it. But just in case, no one showed up at their door with that godfather deal. They've got to come out publicly and say, oh, we don't want to get rid of him. We would never want to get rid of him because they want to preserve the opportunity for him to stick around and sign when he goes into free agency. So to me the fact that they didn't move them in the fact that they came out and said, they weren't planning to doesn't mean they weren't float in that out there. I agree with you completely. If you're Bryce Harper, you've got to be kinda looking around shaking your head going right. Do they really want me? Is this something that that they were really serious about it? And this is pro sports in general? This isn't just the Washington nationals. When you hear the rumors when you see the smoke and you see all these GM's and presidents go through the motions of, well, let's let's see what's out there, and let's see what the possibilities are and then you get the denial twenty four hours later. So where there's smoke sarahspain there's usually fire and I don't doubt for a second at the nationals at least gauge what was out there potentially for Harper and a good news for them is Bryce Harper, at least publicly is saying all the right things about the reports that he was on the trade bloc going into Brazil manage yesterday early this morning. Man, knowing that I was going to say here and I was going to be here. And you know, it's, I took that as you know, I have great relationship, and you know RAs, one of the best teams and all the baseball. And I think he would 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. Nicely? Yeah, of course. In sports, Nick, if you of a star player that goes and talks directly to one of the people in the front office and says, gonna get traded. They never get traded right after that. Just ask to Marta, Rosen. Oh, wait. Hold on. Wait a minute. It's a business. They are treading around five hundred. They might lose them for absolutely nothing. And I can guarantee you, well, I can't guarantee it..

"ESPN. Radio is presented by progressive insurance. And the big names of course, are the teams that were already pretty active, but the dodgers going out and getting Brian dosier from the twins, sending Logan foresight than a couple of prospects to Minnesota. They also. Go out and get veteran right hander John expert to put another arm in their bullpen. They send a prospect to the Blue Jays in exchange for Axelrod. He is an impending free agent. So just a rental, there has got a four forty one ERA with fifty strikeouts in fifty. One innings this season dodgers have made a lot of moves. We sometimes forget about Machado because it feels like it was forever ago, but Nick, how do you see this new look Los Angeles team after the trades today they're going for it and if your fans there, that's all you can ask for. If you have been following the dodgers last few years, they've gotten real close. Certainly less season game seven at home, but they gotta find a way to get all the way there. And it is very clear that ownership front office, the players, everybody's doing whatever they can to try and get over that final hump and you've got to be pleased with the moves they made their trying is best. They can to fill up what was already a pretty solid roster. They've gotten rolling here the last month or so. And you. Never know what kind of other moves can be made in the next few weeks before that final deadline at the inaugural. But Sarah, if you're the dodgers not only were you feeling good because you've been playing pretty well over the last few weeks, but you've got to be feeling really good about the jolt that this will give to your clubhouse. Yeah, absolutely. You mentioned last year they fell just short. Haven't won a World Series since eighty eight. They lead them last year. The majors in wins. They let him in payroll. And if you're a fan, you can't really ask the team for much more than what they've done in terms of trying to build on last year and give themselves a good shot. I would say everybody and that includes you and I who are quite biased, kind of just have the NL as coming down to the dodgers and the cubs and the cubs not making any really big name deals right now. They've gotten a couple of guys to add in sprinkle in, but it's gonna come down to some questions of health with guys like you Darvish and also what he can contribute and Cole hamels what he's got left weather, taking him out of the. Texas ballpark and putting them in in a in a Wrigley ballpark that he's pitched well and of late, whether that makes enough of a difference to make him a a real piece of the cubs team. Also some big news coming for the pirates at the trade deadline, Chris Archer to Pittsburgh Pirates and raise agreeing on the deal with a couple of former top prospects going to Tampa in the deal. And hopefully for the pirates Archer, moving from the alias to the NFL central should help him. He's kind of been average since two thousand sixteen but could be much better and is still obviously one of the bigger names that was out there free dollars still amazed that Pittsburgh is a buyer right now, and you have to wonder if you're that team. If you're looking back on the move heading into this season and thinking, maybe we shouldn't have. We shouldn't have sell their selves sold ourselves. So so short when we're entering this season because they certainly didn't think they'd be here. Goodbye, Garrett, Cole. You wish you might. That one back there. But you know, anytime you hear the sentence in, it starts with big news for the pirates at the deadline. Usually you're thinking the other way, right? Usually take everybody's go. What happened now? The sell off continues year after years. So all those fans as long-suffering fans in Pittsburgh. You've got to feel really happy that your team went out and tried to do something positive, and I'm with you. I mean, there's so much hype around Chris Archer and has been for several years. And you mentioned that all star season, but you know, this is a guy right now with any IRA over four. He's got a whip of one point, three nine..
