Que que Hernandez, now in the game at second base, So Chris Heyler moves to left field.
The 02 pitch to Diaz.
That's a slider lowing in the dirt.
One to Diaz is one for two.
He's singled in the first to lead things off in Game one.
Fast forward to the six and the Dodgers on top, 61 The one raised run came from a cure Meyer solo shot in the top of the fifth.
Kershaw, 12 Diaz watches the curveball.
Good. I from Diaz.
Make it a 22 count.
Yeah, he has ripped the to to making a diving plays.
Justin Turner throw from his knees toe first in time.
Justin Turner, the defensive play, the game diving from third, making the play from his knees, and Diaz couldn't beat it out.
Very impressive in the stretch for months.
CIA's well, tough play to make.
Oh, here we owe pitch number two to Brandon.
Wow, It's a 11 count.
The bases empty.
The media is grounding out the third, the 11 Brandon loud pops it up.
First base side trying to make the players Muncie, and he does again.
I don't even know if I put him in the starting lineup tomorrow night in Game two.
Just I don't know if food makes sense.
I think Mike Brosseau is due for a start in game to sit Brandon loud.
Maybe I'll pin ****.
This brings up Randy Rose Arena, who grounds 12 2nd there to make the play.
Kiki Hernandez Kershaw another 1 to 3 inning at fourth of the night.
Okay, Strand or still trails by five.
Do up for the Dodgers.
123 at the top of the order with bet.
Seeger and Turner.
Game one looking like it's gonna be the lawsuit.
You hear me? Whoops.
Then Can you hear me, Ben? Yeah, I hear you Awesome.
It's rough, to say the least.
Yeah, it's but that Do you agree that Kevin Cash shouldn't have pulled? He should have pulled glass now, like 34 batters before he did, he was trying toe like I say, squeeze a lemon, squeeze the juice out of them as much as he could.
You know, it's important.
You should have pulled them earlier.
I agree with that.
Interesting to me is that Dave Roberts picked Kershaw to start this game.
We all know Kershaw is a great picture, But then again, oh, my.
His postseason career stats are, Let's just say interesting.
And I I find it interesting that he started.
And I think that Dave Roberts has blown, you know, multiple World Siri's, um, winds for the Dodgers.
So this is gonna be an interesting world. Siri's.
I think Dave Roberts just has toe make the right moves, for example, starting Dustin May last game.
That was another interesting move by Dave Robertson.
As you saw, he was pulled in the first because he was on two days rest.
So I think, I think the manager for the Rays, that having a manager, um, what's Who's the Rays manager? Oh, yeah, he I think they haven't up on that because I've seen the whole season that, you know, the Rays rays of great pitching staff that glass and Al Yarbrough.
Who else? There.
There's, um who is Charlie Morton? They got so many pictures on that stuff, and I think they have the up the saddest thing about, you know, the face of that.
They're matching up with the Dodgers is that they have one of the best offenses in the league.
So it's just gonna be you.
They have to be really careful with who they put out.
In my opinion, yeah, it was really interesting because in the Rays, Astro seriously Astros had hit 2 75 going into Game seven and the Rays were hitting 209 The Rays offense has just been so stagnant this postseason.
It's crazy that they beat the Yankees.
Yeah, I'm glad they did, though.
I wanted to see a new face last time we saw him. 2008.
Phillies, I think.
Andrew Friedman was there.
GM who's now the GM of the Dodgers of the president of the Dodgers, which is very interesting.
Yeah, he knows how to.
He knows how to get the world serious.
I think you're a little behind.
Yeah, I am behind you.
I'm sorry to spoil it for, you know, fine.
I'm assuming that it's now 71.
Oh, Jack Fleming in to pitch for Tampa Bay leading office.
Mookie Betts swings at the first pitch.
Deep right field back goes Renfro out of here.
That's hardly knowing the result, isn't it? Yeah.
His first home run this postseason.
He's just dominating the race tonight.
He's been so amazing this postseason.
Glad that, you know, I'm not a Dodgers fan, but I'm glad that they brought him to the team so we could see him this year.
Obviously wasn't going to do a lot with the Red Sox, so I'm glad we got to see him in the postseason.
Oh, yeah, that was Red Sox pitching staff.
This season was a mystery, and it was really a lot of guys who were pitching for the first time in their careers in the minors.
Renfro see him try to climb that wall.
Yeah, about 10 more feet.
Corey Seager pops out to Joey Wendell.
So, Fleming, two in a row with one pitch at bats.
It was a bets home run, and then a Seeger pop out to third base.
But interesting fact, that is his first home run since September 18th. Wow.
Yeah, he had He had all those home runs early on.
It was really Yeah.
They just they haven't decided who on embassy for you.
I'm not gonna call this.
I want you to call this.
Think you got lucky, but about half a foot.
Oh, it's Justin Turner.
There's ball one from Fleming.
One out and on deck is the cleanup hitter, Max Muncy.
Fleming, the 11 Turner rips one into center field.
Meyer back, and that hits off the wall.
Wow, an extra base hit.
Stand up double for Justin Turner and Fleming coming in.
He's really struggled.
His first five pitches is that was less than a foot away from getting out of here.
Oh, we got months.
He's ripping one into right field.
I'm sorry to call this early months.
Is the right field over Renfro's head? Here comes Justin Termer Turner.
Months into second trading places with Justin Turner one out bottom of the 6th, 81 Tampa Bay Tampa Bay losing.
I had to call that because that was I love Max.
Muncy is one of my favorite problem.
Not a big fan of the Dodgers, but Max Muncy fun player to watch.
So Josh Fleming is just letting the Dodgers goto work this is really hard to watch.
But, you know, sometimes these games could be a blessing in disguise.
The Dodgers possibly getting all their offense out of the way.
Exactly. They've been hot, though.
This might be their fourth.
Well, we don't know the outcome of this game, but this might be their fourth win in a row.
Coming back down 31 against the Ronald Acuna Jr led Braves.
Yeah, City of Atlanta going through a lot of tough times.
The Hawks haven't been relevant for quite a while.
The Falcons starting owing five long a few big leads and then the Braves losing that 31 Seriously, I can't imagine living in the city of Atlanta right now, but here is Will Smith, the non Scientologist first pitch all up and end.
Now, Kershaw must be feeling really good right now with the state one leading a lot of rest.
Kershaw is the happiest man in Arlington right now.
His offense has given him plenty of breathing.
Room 10 from Fleming ball outside.
I would just pitch Fleming the rest of the inning, regardless of what happens because you're down seven.
You just want to save the bullpen arms for Game two agreed completely.
Yeah, this got to make that investment.
You know, it's you never know what could happen, even though down seven runs, we've seen the Dodgers, although they have the best offense in the league, score 11 runs in that first inning against the Braves that started there.
31 Comeback, um, last Siri's So you never know what Tampa Bay could do? Obviously, they don't have the same off France as the Dodgers, but you never know what could happen.
Yep, it's all about making those business decisions, and right now it's looking like the Dodgers could take a 91 lead with a sac fly, even a sac fly.
Well, I think we got a all thrown on the field.
You will be coming up to that right now.
Yeah, you see those Dodger bands getting that ball you're about your about to come up to.
It was very interesting.
There's Flora in the bullpen for Los Angeles.
We have run around, not a sack private score.
Excuse me, is there is a stoppage in play.
Look at those Dodger fans, how ecstatic they are and see that's a problem.
They should be thrown out not only because they threw a ball in the field, but because of Cove in Exactly.
I agree completely with that.
If you look, do you follow man by the name of Zack Hample on? You know the guy who catches all the Is he there? Oh, yeah, he's been He's been there in Arlington because all the games have been in Arlington.
Um, he do***ents, you know, on YouTube for all of you who who do not know, you know, his the games that he goes Thio and he When he went to the first game, he saw that there wasn't a lot of, you know, social distancing.
But what they did do Thio help.
The players was put a barrier about the first 6 to 5 rows, um, in the bleachers in Santa, right in left field between and put somewhat of a barrier between the players and the fans by blocking off those first five grows.
So that's a very interesting step that MLB took right.
You know, the NFL and most college football teams, excluding part of the SEC of and following the guidelines first stc Sunbelt.
You know, you look at the way.
Hate to say, I hate to say it, but the teams in the South in general have not been following guidelines.
I believe the Big 10 in the Pac 12 or not, allowing fans in the stadiums this season, which is we again.
It's just factual that the Big 10 and Pac 12 are better academically than the SEC.
It's just it's it's tough.
It's tough to say it like that.
But even looking here in Arlington, I just saw the kid who got the ball back.
Nobody was wearing a mask in that camera shot, and they weren't distancing.
And you wonder why the numbers are going up in Texas? Exactly.
And I think the exact Hampel also referenced another rule that the MLB has put in place for the fans.
You are supposed to wear a mask it all times unless you are eating, which is a very interesting guideline because you know you could be eating.
You could be snacking on peanuts the whole game and have your mask off.
I don't know how, really.
It prevents the spread of cove it.
So it's hard to, you know, hard toe put fans in the stands and prevent coronavirus from spreading.
But we're not forcing anybody to go to the game, so right and I don't know if you've been thio any games during the pandemic, But I did.
It was the Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins game and I'm sitting that what they do is they cover up.
I don't know if they're doing this in Arlington, but they covered up the seats that weren't up for purchase and all.
He left the ones and they were all 6 ft apart.
But I was sitting two rows, um, from the top, about 40 yard line.
But the people behind us are one of the guys is not wearing a mask the entire time.
It's on his chin because he's just, you know, he's got a drink in his hand the entire time.
But that's an issue again.
You make a very good point with the food so much leeway.
And not only that, the ushers that most of these stadiums aren't enforcing it because we see these fans game after game without masks, they're not being thrown out sm.
You, though, did have to throw it.
A lot of students, a few games back in Dallas for violating rules.
But it just needs to be enforced all around the country.
And we're all in this together.
This isn't a this isn't just Texas.
It's, um, completely agree.
It's completely agree.
It's really tough, but it's nice to see that there are at least limited capacity in Arlington for the world.
Siri's, but probably not a lot of Ray's fans, because they're not going.
There probably are geese amount Dodger fans just because there are a worldwide team.
The Rays, of course.
Just mostly in ST Pete with the fan base.
If that exactly something I found interesting about the raise.
I think I got an update yesterday about this.
I heard that Wander Franco, the number one prospect in the league, is being called up for this world.
That would be That is nice because Willie Domus has really struggled at the plate, and I believe I did see that it's Austin Meadows is now come in to pinch hit for the cleanup hitter, Hunter Renfroe, who is had a tough go with the plate tonight.
The 100 from Floro Meadows rips that one foul and you look at the average is tonight's lower to hundreds lower 100 for this raise lineup? Exactly.
I was just about to talk about that.
You see, in batting 1 14 in the fort.
Is he in the four spot? Is that what it says? Yeah, Now he's the He's pinch hitting for Renfroe, always pinching and got it.
Didn't even realize.
But yeah, batting 1 14.
It's an unfortunate sight to see that, but I think the Rays have kind of run out of options.
And also, I don't think they wanna put a lot out there right now.
They know this game isn't going in the right direction for them, and they just want to get through this game and get to Game two with, You know, not a lot put on the field, you know, don't want to really get through their bullpen.
They just want to keep, you know, just get through this game as fast as possible.
Yeah, I would expect a lineup change tomorrow.
E believe Game two is tomorrow and they'll be really packing these games in.
Yeah, I would think that Brandon Lau will not start because yeah, he was the best player in the regular season one of the best second ba*****t of the league.
But he hasn't done anything at the plate.
He hit one home run and that's been about it.
I would like to see Mike Brosseau haven't started the second base, but knowing Kevin Cashel, you'll just make the wrong decision when it's so obvious.
Okay, Game two is tomorrow.
The 22 There's a ball outside 88 from Floro, so Kershaw threw a solid six innings that will more than likely get the win tonight.
Florida has beautiful move on his two scene.
Wow, you're about to come up on that pitch.
But Florida's to seen cuts really hard, right? It's a very beautiful pitch to see.
I haven't seen Flora pitch, but that fast.
That two seam fastballs cutting hard right with my hands made of dust in May.
If you've seen him pitch.
Yeah, Dusty Maze, solid as well.
There Floro the pay off pitch Meadows swings and misses.
First strikeout first recorded out for Dylan Floro.
Now it'll bring up the five hitter and, well, Margo, nothing doing tonight besides that cure my our home run in the Rays lineup.
So Kershaw in six innings through two hits, the one earned run on your Myers solo shot and the difference between Kershaw on glass Now tonight was the walks.
You really most of the categories air similar because glass down didn't give up that many hits.
It was all about the walks.
He walked six batters, just inexcusable.
You can't walk six batters when you throw under five innings.
Was about to talk about that when you look at the go ahead.
Oh, Margo, base hit in the center field.
First base hit tonight.
Rays have a runner. Go ahead.
Yep, And what's really interesting is if you look at the run toe hit ratio, it's 1 to 1.
You know, they have eight hits on the night, and then it runs.
So they've been very efficient at the plate, and I think it has to do with those walks like you talked about.
Yeah, the glass.
Now it's curveball just wasn't working at all tonight, and I mentioned early on the last broadcast.
If I would like to see the ball to strike ratio on glass now is curveballs, and what percent of them went in the dirt because I'm sure that it would be a least 40% of them that went in the dirt and a 3 to 1 ball to strike ratio.
It's just rough night on the mound.
Probably won't see him until maybe Game Five out of the bullpen, but he's got to get a lot of rest.
Here's Joey Wendell 10 pitched.
Now that one is also blowing in on the slider.
Give out of 20 count hitter's count for Wendell the 20 Wendell fouls that one away on the sinker.
The runner on first.
Margo, After getting one up the middle, I'm gonna let you call this one.
Okay? All right.
Coming up, Flora.
The 21 That's a fastball outside of 94.
So, Wendell again, A hitter's count.
Well, im two pitches out of you.
Got to do something with my TV.
I don't know what's going on.
Maybe if I Let's see if I could pause the TV and then play it in about 10 seconds.
We Wendell rips one to deep left center field back his bets at the wall and he can't make the catch.
Was actually Bellenger, But Margot rounds third, and he will stay.
So, Joey Wendell, with an extra base hit, maybe they'll call this an error.
I believe they're going to call it an Eric Came off of Bell, injures glove right in front of the rays.
So you're gonna come? You're gonna see this replay right here.
You just yourself.
I believe it will be an error.
Yeah, it should be.
But yeah, it's interesting, because during the regular season, I noticed that the scorecards were very lenient and calling errors hits.
Maybe I just haven't noticed that in the past few years, but that was just my judgment.
Regardless, Joey Wendell standing on second with one swing of the bat.
The Rays can cut this to a four run lead, but it's really a Domus who has struggled at the plate throughout the postseason.
Exactly one out.
This is exactly what the Tampa Bay Rays wants to see.
We got your man batting up there.
That's up to plate.
Somebody who you wanted waiting.
I bet they're either pinch hitting Brosseau or Brosseau Choi or you'll be happy.
Okay, I'll be happy.
I kind of like you being ahead of kind of o g Man Choi pinch hitting for William Thomas.
This is a great move.
The best move Kevin Cash has made all night.
So you call this to you knew this was gonna happen.
This is very interesting.
It's interesting that they're putting them out there down 81 But then again, they have 32nd with one out late in the game.
But they could pull.
They could pull closer.
Oh, yeah, Once you get past Kershaw, anything is fair game.
But it's some bullpen action.
It's Victor Gonzales for Los Angeles in the bullpen now amount visit from Dave Martinez.
E thought it was big from Dave Martinez.
That'll do it for Floro.
So it looks like Gonzalez will come in and inherit 2nd and 3rd and 1 out.
There's the second time tonight that a bullpen pitcher has inherited a really tough situation.
Yarbrough with 1st and 3rd 1 out and now Gonzalez with 2nd and 3rd 1 out.
Yes, we got on Thursday night.
Eagles or Giants Man, Eagles or Giants.
I'm definitely not going to watch Eagles Giants.
That's you know, I would give it to the Eagles.
Giants haven't looked pretty at all this whole season, neither of the Eagles.
But I give it to the Eagles with Carson Wentz.
You know, it's still a good quarterback.
Yeah, I really think that Philadelphia is going toe win That division, especially with Prescott out in Ezekiel Elliott, has not been.
This has probably been the worst start to a season through the first six games, and I think you know what I read.
I think I read the fact that that division is 5 18 and one on the season combined.
It's really you know, it's yes, it's the division with the worst teams, but it is also, at the same time, an exciting race because it's the only division.
Well, possibly the A F C are not the FCS, the NFC West.
But the NFC East is they're all within one game of each other.
It could come down to the last week, possibly, but the crazy thing is, an NFC East team will be hosting a playoff game.
Yep, though more than likely be the four seed and I really think will be the Eagles that either, uh 6, 10 and one or 79 and one.
But that team going the playoffs with a losing record? Yeah.
And you know, I've argued the other day that it's a flaw in the playoff system, but at the same time, it really isn't because it's if you win your division, you deserve to be in the playoffs.
Yeah, talking about playoffs.
You know the playoffs, especially this year.
What do you What did you think the MLB did? And what did you think the MLB did as a It was a good job was a bad job with this playoff bracket in 2020 because of obviously coronavirus e.
It was a great decision, and they should continue doing so because more teams and the more fun it is, it's also more money.
The more games it's, it's a real smart decision.
But of course, you have the 21 seeds playing each other in the world. Siri's.
That also raises questions about the 16 team playoff.
But this is the first year I would experimented again next year and possibly move forward with it with some, maybe some adjustments.
That's the wild card game just being one game, which is what i e.
You know, it's very interesting baseball.
Unlike and unlike the National Basketball Association baseball, truly, anything could happen.
You know, you saw the Rays pick up at the end of the season and popping and almost beat the Atlanta Braves, which just lost in the last Siri's.
But the Trevor Bauer led that team, but I think 13 or 14 consecutive wins something, something like that.
It was ridiculous.
And, you know, they almost beat the Atlanta Braves in the first.
Siri's going to the 13th inning, 00 It was a you know, it was a pitcher's race.
Pitchersduel, Um, so, unlike the MBA, anything could happen.
That's something interesting about this playoff bracket this year.
You know, I believe that it wouldn't be a two and a one seed or one in a one seed.
I thought it was gonna be, you know, maybe a three and a four seed, something like that.
And, you know, obviously it didn't turn out like that.
But that's I think something. They have to be careful.
They're not careful about something that's really interesting about this bracket, because anything could happen.
Yeah, this this year we've had the two seed Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup, the one seed L. A Lakers.
When the NBA Finals and regardless of who wins this, it's gonna be a one seed.
Now it's up to football, which it probably will be a one seed again.
The three out of Barroso's in there for strike one, but I know you were pulling for the Clippers.
Yeah, I was pulling for the Clippers.
Speak about 31 blown leads.
That was very unfortunate for the Clippers and the Jazz as well.
But the Clippers were honestly, I would think, the favorites in the West tied with word they were.
You know Vegas usually gets, even though Vegas, I'd like to say Vegas are people in Vegas or not fans of the game, but they're usually right.
And they had, I believe, the Clippers in the West, The Bucks in the East.
Obviously, both teams didn't even make it to the NBA Finals.
You're either team didn't make it to the NBA Finals, so that was, you know, very interesting that Vegas got that wrong this year. They're usually correct.
So some of the point out there it's really unbelievable that Vegas is able to do.
I'm just pulling an example out of left field.
But I think it was N C State that played West Carolina a few years back in football.
N C State beat him 41.
Nothing. The spread was 41 a half.
That's just criminal.
How good they are.
They're spreads there. Unbelievable.
There's the 3 to 2 Brosseau rips one into right field base hit.
Coming around to score is Margo as well as well, Joey Wendell advanced the third.
So the Rays attack on their second run of the game, runners on the corners with one out.
So at first to his G Man Choi.
Because at first they were gonna face Randy, uh, Dylan Floro.
But then they put in Gonzales, so they decided to put in Brosseau.
So I wonder if choice still available because that's very rare to see a pinch it and then a pinch hit before the first pitch was thrown.
I believe Choi is still in the game.
Is that correct, or is he, um, to see when I'm looking at the box score for on MLB dot com? It says that Choi pinch hit for Adamis and then Roso pinch hit for Troy, which I don't believe is correct.
And you're about to like this this next play.
But I don't believe this is correct, because Choi didn't even face the first any pitch.
So I think he's available in this game.
It'll be interesting to see if Choi returns to are just well, it wouldn't be returning.
It would just be coming in.
But it's runners on the corners.
Care Meyer homered earlier tonight, Gonzales set the 10 care Meyer lines this one same places Brosseau in the right field.
Coming around to score is Wendell.
The Rays within five and with one swing of the bat, can make this a two run game.
And who better to come up than somebody who either homers? Air strikes out with Mike Zunino? I really think Mike Zunino was built for this situation.
Two strikeouts on the night.
He's over to Yes, like you hinted he is a home similar.
He's a hit, a homer or strike out type of guy.
All all or nothing is Mike Zunino, who is a Florida Gator graduate.
Now he's able Thio play at the highest level in the state of Florida.
But Zannino again getting 205 this postseason.
See if he can get his first world Siri's hit first pitch from from Gonzalez.
That's a ball low.
They're actually two former raise that are and the Dodgersbullpen staff with Adam Cleric and Jake McGee.
But there his action, I believe it's Pedro Bias.
Who is warming up? Gonzalez delivers the 10 that's ball too low and in raise, trying to make some noise here in the seventh.
They've done so far with two runs here a Brosseau R B I single that brought home argo than a cure Meyer R B I single bringing home Joey Wendell now a mound visit from Austin Barnes, right? What? I would think that the D A troll going forward is also a possibility.
Universal designated hitter? Yep.
Next, you know how many teams they're going Thio willfully put their picture in the lineup.
I know that the Mets have you Go ahead.
Oh, you might only see that from one or two teams that I believe maybe somebody like the Arizona Diamondbacks with Bumgarner.
But besides that, you're not gonna really see that that often.
Right? I really think that the universal D H roll it was was a good move for the shortened season.
If you think about it, this this game could have been totally different.
If it was not the universal D h really would have seen Tyler Glass now, but well, on the other hand, Zunino struck out twice tonight as Gonzalez ready to deliver the to one pitch.
Mike Zunino swings and misses square count the 96 heater from Gonzalez close by Zunino.
Waiting on deck is Yandy Diaz, who's one for three tonight? I'm assuming I'm not going to like this result.
No, I have not actually seen the result.
I'm just gonna tell you right now, it's a three and two count.
I didn't I don't wanna go ahead because I don't want to ruin it for, you know.
Oh, you actually might not like this result.
This is a very unfortunate cir***stances is something you don't really see right now. Thetis.
Very lucky for the Dodgers to get out of this with Onley Two runs.
Gonzalez had a beautiful play here.
I'd love to see how fast.
That was off the bat.
Oh, and the rays air doubled up.
Gonzalez talking to himself.
If you followed his pitch off the mound, that would have went up the middle and that would have scored another run.
It would have only been one out man on 2nd and 1st again with, you know, replacing Cure Mayer on first.
So that's very unlucky for the race.
It waas now the seventh inning stretch, Seventh inning Covad stretch.
I'm gonna check.
What's Yeah, Well, there's really no other sports going on right now.
Did you hear that Rondo might be heading to the Clippers? I believe they're not there as a possibility of going to the Clippers.
Yeah, I'd like to see that.
And another rumor is that Derrick Rose might be going to the Lakers.
So that's those are two very interesting speculations in the MBA right now.
What a crazy career Derrick Rose has had he really, uh, if I If I may go crazy Not necessarily a Hall of Famer, but close to a Hall of Fame level.
If he really didn't have more than that, just that more than that.
One significant injury.
He's just been plagued by injuries.
Um, and it's been tough for him, but he had a had a nice stint in Minnesota.
Nice stint in Detroit.
Oh, yeah, Completely.
He's what he's like, 32.
Now, let me check he.
I believe he is 32.
Um, I think you got it on the money.
Let me see real quick.
You got on the got Nice.
Something very interesting about their 2000 and eight number one pick in the NBA draft.
And he had an unbelievable career in those first couple first.
You know, 45 years in on the Chicago Bulls.
Um, played with unfortunate injuries after that.
Such an unbelievable player.
Um, sad to see, But I'm very happy to see him back in the game being successful in Detroit.
Have, you know, having that at that time in Detroit? Yeah.
He was one of the best players in recent history for the Memphis Tigers.
Lead them to a national championship, but ran into Mario Chalmers in the Kansas Jayhawks.
Man, bringing that name up.
Mario Chalmers Haven't heard that name since 2013 with the Miami Heat with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
Yeah, that was hell of a team.
I don't think that.
And really, this year, the Heat making the championship.
I can't see them making it in the next two years unless the rumors, if they sign, yeah, when you real quick.
When you look at this play, watch Gonzalez with this throw.
This is very interesting.
You see his throw to second base? I'm selling commercial.
Now in a second phase, he almost over under throws it and it goes to the left side of.
I believe it was Chris Taylor, almost by him yet to dive for that.
Yeah, that would have been very unfortunate, for the Dodgers would have advanced in a 3rd and 1st with two outs, something that happened there.
But you know, the Dodgers got lucky.
Very unlucky for Tampa Bay.
But Fleming will stay on the mound for the moment, had a tough sixth inning and you have you seen Polar Express? I have not.
Well, there's an old fat man on the train at some point in the movies is basically like a homeless guy, but he looks so much like Victor Gonzalez, and I'm just putting it together.
Blair, if you looked up Polar Express guy on the train or he's one of these one of the coal workers just so funny.
Sometimes you have these players look like the weirdest people.
But no disrespect to Gonzalez on that play was fantastic.
Joey Wendell moves to shortstop.
Brosseau moves to third base so loud will stay put at second, But Meadows enters the game for Renfroe and right field, and Randy arose.
Arena will stay.
Is the D h the 12 from Fleming? Taylor fouls that one back off the end of the bat.
Unfortunately, Tampa Bay is has missed Chasse Roach as row for the remainder of the postseason.
Well, they've missed in the entire postseason, but he also missed some of the last games of the regular season.
He's probably have got the best slider in the game.
Is Fleming throws a ball high? Mhm from you, The 22 that Z called Ball three.
Nice looking sinker, though, from Fleming.
Miss Taylor's two for two with a walk showing a Tommy Lasorda jersey.
I hate Tommy Lasorda 32 Taylor goes Strike three.
Fleming gets him on the sinker.
Second strikeout tonight for Fleming.
Now you live you live dear Los Angeles, right? Yes, I dio So you know the movie Fletch? The movie Fletch rings a bell.
There's a line in the movie where Fletch says I hate Thomas because with, uh, Chevy Chase, you kind of broke up there.
Can you repeat that? War war? What happened? You kind of broke up there.
Could you say that one more time? A little sort of line.
You know, it's very interesting about Kiki Hernandez.
He came in in Game seven and hit that I believe is Game seven.
Hit that home run, pinch hit and hit that home run.
He is one of the most clutch pitch hitters I have ever seen.
To be completely honest, he grounds out here to the first baseman for the second out on a 31 count.
But overall, he's been a very, very good hitter.
Um um, coming as a very good pinch hitter, eso It's very interesting to see him coming to the game on an 83 lead.
I would think that they would set him out for this game, kind of use them for the next few games, coming up with an eight week three lead.
Now, maybe I'm remembering this incorrectly, but is he related somehow to Keith Hernandez? Maybe.
I don't think so.
I'll be your fact checker.
I wanna I actually very would love to know if that's true.
For some reason, I'm thinking that let's be Hernandez is such a common last name, especially in the baseball world.
Yep, very fortunate sign for the Rays getting a 123 in a.
That's right is it was Austin Barnes who is now over four, grounding out the short Wendell making the play do up for Tampa Bay.
Jandi Diaz, Brandon Lau and Randy arose. Arena.
Rose Arena has been the story of the postseason, the rookie with seven home runs.
He reached base tonight on his first at bat with a walk.
Something to maybe point out about this match up is that the Dodgers have been constantly in the world.
Siri's well, when you think about it, the rays of only you know made it to the World Series.
Last time was in 2008 and they've never even if you could back check me on this.
I don't even think they've won a world.
Siri's, um, ever Is that true? Yeah.
And, um, for these Rays players, this is the first time making it this far.
And, um, you know, facing the Dodgers, the big, bad Dodgers that have always been favorited throughout the season.
Great offense, great pitching staff.
And obviously we all knew that they have a very great chance of making it to this big stage.
The world Siri's.
You know, they're more comfortable.
Here s Oh, this is very, you know, it's It's great to point this out because this is the first game of the World Series for these guys.
You know, They got to get these.
They got to get these emotions out, really experience it in the coming games.
We that's where they can't mess up.
But, you know, they're getting their emotions out there witnessing, you know, history essentially, and they just need to get there, you know, get get calm, get used to this stage.
I agree with you 100%.
This is every game matters, but this is a good learning experience for Tampa Bay.
Given up, they've also fought back quick, 123 innings from Fleming.
The Rays got some runners on and two runs in the top half of the seventh.
But now, at the top of the order, anything can happen with this. Dodgersbullpen.
01 thing to talk about.
I think I just saw this in the commercial.
The Ballenger arm bump.
Did you see that last game when he popped his shoulder out? I did not see that.
So after he hit a home run, he celebrated by, you know, bumping arms with other people, and he bumped his arm a little too hard.
I believe it was with Kiki Hernandez, Enrique Hernandez and popped his shoulder out during a celebration, and the craziest thing about that is he has popped his shoulder out in a game before and hit the home run in that game.
So that has happened twice for um, it's a weird step that has happened twice for Cody Bellinger.
Yeah, Ballenger is now Homer three times in his first four at bats in his career against Tyler Glass.
Now, so I mean that I don't know if that's ever happened, where a player had three home runs.
Because coming into tonight, Ballenger was two for two with two home runs.
I'd be interested to see if advanced stats and info get that going.
Yeah, so I can't imagine, regardless of if somebody's done it before, it's an amazing feat.
Pedro Bias in the pitch for the Dodgers? That's the first pitch Balto Gandhi, Diaz and Cody Bellinger has been.
You know, he he hasn't been.
I'm not gonna say he hasn't been himself, but his last season was unbelievable.
And, yes, he hasn't been as consistent as last season, mainly because, you know, this is a shorter season, but he is really starting to show up in these playoffs.
So that's important.
To note out, he has pops This 10 pitch up.
Coming in to make the play is Key K.
Hernandez for the first out of the inning, the Dodgers, now five outs away from taking Game one of the world Siri's so bring up Brandon loud.
And I really think that if Brandon Loud doesn't reach base here, he just has to be sat tomorrow.
Yes, to do something or just put him at the bottom of the lineup.
But again, do you think they're gonna provide tonight? Came from a bomb.
Do you think they're gonna Yeah.
Do you think they're gonna pitch bias in the eighth and the ninth and just try to get him through? He's usually one in and, yeah, there.
I was thinking that, too.
I think he'll pitch the night.
No reason to pitch.
Jansen really isn't.
If the Rays don't, it depends on if the race score twice.
Then I'll put in Jansen.
But if they score one or less than no.
And if you look at the shift, this is very interesting.
Yes, you have the second baseman usually playing ****her back than the other positions.
But if you look at the shift Oh, my u C KK Hernandez Almost in the outfield.
Yeah, They've been doing this Thio Brandon loud tonight, which is I'm not sure why, because Brandon Lau has struggled to hit it out of the infield.
You see the shift with Turner? Here's the 02 Brandon.
LOL rips this swan.
Just foul of the right field line.
Could have been extra bases for the former Maryland Terrapin, but he'll have to head back to the box.
Nice swing, though.
02 bases empty, one out the top of the eighth Dodgers on top of Tampa Bay, 8 to 3 by a set.
02 And that shift comes into player. You.
It's gonna come up right now for you.
But that shift does come into play, as you see with Kiki Hernandez, somebody who had just talked about being positioned perfectly right in between, um, the right fielder Mookie Betts and word you would normally play the position at second base.
So Paul goes right to him.
The one to Liao pops this one up and correct.
Perfect shift for the Dodgers.
Kiki Hernandez under the routine catch.
Two outs now, and the Rays were really the team that made the shift.
A big thing with Joe Maddon and the Joe Maddon era.
He was big with shifts, and it's become infectious around the league, especially in the postseason, where been able to see it in the most important moments as Randi, a rosary that comes up and as the game A Z game progresses.
We see you know more more statistics in play with baseball, you know, If you look at football, you know those the quarterbacks usually have something on their risk plays different, you know, type of statistics, stuff like that.
We're starting to see that in the back pocket of MLB players, which is a very interesting part of the game.
They're starting to look at that and see where the hot zones are for certain players, where they hit it, where they don't hit it.
So you know you're seeing statistics coming, the coming to play in the MLB more and more often now, Yeah, and adding on to that.
A few years back, I went to a Liberty University of South Florida, game out of Tampa.
The weirdest thing.
I've never seen this, especially at the college, baseball or higher level, where the batter's would have cards and before each at bat would take it out and read it for at least 30 to 45 seconds.
Now, keep in mind.
Liberty University is a very religious school.
Maybe they were reading a Bible verse, but I don't know exactly that's like money, and the Lord said, hit a triple the 20 there's a that's in there for Strike one.
Meanwhile, the Liberty football team is hot there, 50 out in Lynchburg, Virginia, but they play Virginia Tech in a few weeks.
That could be a rude awakening or a huge upset.
Possibly Liberty could be in the top 25.
They were able to beat cookies.
The 21 arose arena with a blast into left center field, maybe half a blast.
His Bellenger is under it.
That'll do it the top half of the eighth.
Very important rain.
Very unfortunate for the Rays that they have six hits, three runs, somewhat fish.
And I would say to be completely honest, You know, sometimes you know, for example, Trevor Bauer's team in that first Siri's that they had against the Atlanta Braves had e think it dozen hits and only had and had no runs.
So, you know there, there's someone efficient.
But when you look at the Dodgers eight hits, eight runs, that's extremely efficient.
I think it has to do with glass.
Now walks, um, that you hinted Thio.
I'll tell you right now, with the Rays lineup tomorrow night, I would have Kevin Kiermaier leading off.
He is really hit well tonight after he had somewhat of a wrist injury, missed two games in the Astro.
Siri's came back in Game seven, went over 33 strikeouts.
Only had one ball maybe hit to him in the field.
But the home run in the rip single you have toe put him in the top of the order because Brandon Lau, no production tonight and Renfro just shouldn't be starting tomorrow, probably for the rest of the series.
But Brett Phillips was not on the L.
C s roster, but Brett Phillips is now on the world syriza roster.
Maybe he starts tomorrow night, but that's still too much of risk.
He's pretty young, and there's a good chance that Meadows does start tomorrow with Renfroe sitting out.
But I would have care.
Meyer Margo hit fifth tonight.
I would have Margo heading second tomorrow, but we'll see because Cash always switches up the lineup.
The Dodgers usually have the give or take a few players the same lineup order, if that.
If that makes sense, something that I've seen from Dave Roberts that I don't know the Tampa Bay Rays do, because I haven't watched him as a watch to be completely honest, but they try to go.
Lefty Righty lefty righty.
Um, is that what the Tampa Bay Rays do? Have you seen that? Or they just isn't an arbitrary, arbitrary but isn't a Is it a just random lineup from time to time with, UM, Tampa Bay Rays? Do they put? I think it's a mix of arbitrarily and playing the matchup because, well, I think this entire season, I don't know if Kevin Cash to the same lineup in back to back games get Not only that, I don't know if he did it at all this.
He's probably eventually because 60 games.
Yeah, Kevin Cash is known for changing up his lineup like nobody's business.
Like G Man Choi, who lead off in many games last season at first base, it's rare to see a first baseman leading off.
They're usually either it and clean up or third, but they record with Ji Man.
Leading off was well above 500.
Now look at this.
Mookie Betts is the second player with walk and two steals in a single inning, and the last time that was done was in 1921 by Babe Ruth.
And I also saw that since 1912 that a team had three stolen bases in and was the New York baseball giants.
Wow, New York baseball giants? Very well.
No team had Willie Mays famous basket.
Catch that rival with this team, the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Now we see Mookie Betts up to bat, rips one right into left field.
I would call him the second best player in the MLB.
Obviously, we can't compare him Thio that that the world famous Michael Trout, um, one of the best players to ever play the game of baseball.
Well, what is the what does the future hold for Mike Trout? Will he be an angel forever? Because e tired of losing? I agree with that, and I think he wants, obviously wants to win.
But I think he wants to win.
Mostly, You know, not, you know, his legacy as a baseball player obviously is in place with him being such a baseball player, but he wants to get titles under his belt, and that's how he gets put, you know, in the top 10 top 15 top five spaces.
He has to have titles under his belt.
You thought it might have been you know, he might have had a better chance to season with Brendan getting pulled over from Washington, all you know, on his team, who had a very good season last season.
But you know, Mike Trout, just, you know, he pulls that team together, and the Angels are just a very weird team to watch because they are built, like, you know, a World Series possible team with Mike Trout.
Yes, boules is getting older, but he's a very consistent player.
You have a good pitching staff on that team, but you know, it's it's unfortunate that it's not going.
They're not going to the, you know we're not gonna be able to see them in October, obviously not October this year.
But in the references, right? Yeah, I and I think in the future, possibly the Yankees and the Red Sox will make a bid for MMA Seeger Grounds at the first steps on first throw to second, Wendell puts down the tag wasn't a force out once he has tapped on first, but a double play, a three six double play, and we don't see that that often from Corey Seager.
He's been very red hot He's played 13 games besides this game, um, in the postseason and he's hit.
He last last last Siri's.
He had five home runs, and I believe that is the first time a shortstop has ever hit ever done that in a serious he had five home runs in that series against the Atlanta Braves.
Hey, don't often see short stops with that much power.
That's usually your contact hitter position.
And, of course, the captain of the infield most most often is.
Justin Turner steps in.
He's one for four.
He swings the one of foul, maybe hit his foot as he shakes that one off quickly.
I don't think another reason.
I think Mike Trout doesn't you know, doesn't want to move from the Angels.
Is that yes, it's L A.
And it's a great city, but he just signed a $426.
5 million contract with them.
If that's not a commitment, what is right? He's Yeah, and plus I think he you know, it's different from basketball, of course, with Kevin Durant situation leaving from Oklahoma City, Thio the Warriors.
But it's kind of like that thing.
What will that do to his legacy of Mike Trout is, too.
Go to the Yankees or something, which would give him Aaron Judge.
Similar Muecke bets to the Dodgers scenario.
Right with bets. Bellenger.
Nothing against Mookie.
But I mean you already joining a team that made it to the World Series two times before, right? You never see those kind of guys go to the Rays, either.
Well, first of all, because they can't afford them.
And the razor, you know, zero about the thing about the Tampa Bay Rays is that they're in this with the Los Angeles Dodgers that I believe have that spent maybe four times the amount of money the Rays have spent Something ridiculous like that.
And I saw that Kershaw and Bets alone are worth more than the entire raised roster, because here's the to.
To To Turner, that's a sinker low 94 which will fill up the count of 32 Mookie Betts, the Nashville native, the 32 There is the ball way outside, something that's so interesting I'm looking at Mookie Betts right now is that is the chain scenario.
Obviously you don't see that in you know, any other sport, but When you look at baseball, you see these heavy chains on these players.
You look at Ronald Acuna after hitting a home run and trotting the basis he has this humongous chain around his neck bobbing up and down something interesting that, uh, Manfred allows that.
Yeah, if if I were the commissioner, I would be concerned as a from a safety standpoint, because see a ball hits that it could ricochet into a catcher's I or something.
I'm not a big fan of it.
Even in travel ball, they in most leagues, they enforce the role where you can't wear any jewelry of any type.
Just because it's dangerous, it's You could choke you at some point.
Probably not, but it's just the fact that pieces could fly off.
It's a high risk hazard if you understand what being there and yes, it's a very it's a flamboyant thing, and it's something that you know.
It's a showy thing, but isn't it holding you down? If you have that big of a chain, that's the most interesting part about it.
It's like these players want to get us fast as they can as strong as they can, and they're wearing this humongous chain.
You wouldn't see that in the 19 thirties.
Max Muncy once again, a very fun player to watch.
You know, he few years ago wasn't it wasn't even on the roster.
Sam is Walker Buehler.
If you look at Walker Buehler, he was, I think, five years ago watching not even in in baseball truly, and was watching the, um, the game from the stands at Dodger Stadium.
He posted a picture, and it's still on his Twitter from, like 2014 of watching the Dodger game up in the, um, um, Bird's eye view seats.
And now he's playing on the team he was watching.
So that's very interesting thing that that is really need.
And it's also Brett Phillips is a guy who rooted for the Rays growing up.
Now it z pretty cool to see players that I don't know if you've seen a Patrick Kane, there's it doesn't necessarily have to the Blackhawks, but it's a sabers player.
He was at a sabers game when he was about 8, 10 years old, and you could see him in the picture of that card That's a future Hall of Famer Patrick Kane and a hockey card that wasn't even met for him.
It's really neat.
And that brings up also.
You know, you've seen the photos of Trae Young and, um, players similar to our age.
They took photos with, you know, LeBron James when they looked like they were eight years old.
So those were really cool photos to look back at and say, Oh, my God, that was me with the player I'm playing against in the league.
Yeah, hopefully I have just unlimited pictures on my phone with with athletes.
I don't know if you do the same to you, of course.
Yeah, maybe maybe in 15 15 years, I e don't know.
Maybe in five years out of college, I could pitch for the Rays and play against the I don't know Ryan, Lamar E don't know if you know that is, but we met him at a bus stop after a spring training game between the Twins and Orioles, but you probably have some pictures with some big celebrities living near Los Angeles.
Yeah, it's it's it's a fun city to live in.
Um, you know, Los Angeles also does bring athletes from all over the world during the off season.
Um, they won one workout.
A lot of the, um uh, not just celebrities, but a lot of the athletes like to do is go to the beach and work on the beach.
Um, in san workouts.
So sometimes I go to the beach and one in one time I went to the beach, actually saw Mike Trout.
So that was a really cool experience.
He was working out with some, um I think it was some maybe triple triple A guys.
You know, I didn't really recognize any actual other baseball players, so maybe it was, you know, guys from different teams I didn't recognize, but obviously didn't recognize Mike Trout.
He's working his butt off sweating.
I didn't take a photo with him personally because I didn't want to interrupt this workout, but I did take photos of him, not with him.
Eso You know, it was very cool to see that I've also walked my trout, play the Dodgers and in the in the freeway syriza's they like to call it.
That was another interesting one.
We saw Mike Trout and usually at Dodger Stadium.
Every single player in the, um in the like, you know, when they introduced players, every single player gets booed somewhat, even if you know you're a good player.
You heard so many cheers for because everyone around baseball has so much respect for the Mike Trout.
He's such an unbelievable players.
Such a gift to watch.
Oh, yeah, and honestly, I'm not.
I don't understand why people still booed Tom Brady at times.
I know, especially in New England, but it's probably because he has six Super Bowl rings and Mike Trout zero.
I don't even know if he's prepared in American League Championship Series.
How about that Aaron Rodgers Tom Brady duel the other day? Yeah, that was.
Actually, it was the third all time meeting and Brady just dominate.
At first, it looked like the Packers were doing well.
They jumped out to that 10.
Nothing lead, but Rogers, through his first interception of the season, was a pick six then from then just went downhill, and the Buccaneers are.
I think, something interesting that I that I read or that I think Shannon Sharpe said, This was that was his on Lee fourth ever career. Pick six.
Yeah, there's no doubt about it that Rogers is, I would think, a top seven quarterback of all time, because it's the fact that he's only won one super, I believe far one I want to say to maybe one.
But you know, the Packers in general, Aaron Rodgers could be either the third best quarterback second best or first cause you have Bart Starr, Brett Farve and Aaron Rodgers easily the best franchise in terms of quarterbacks.
Maybe you could say the Steelers with Brad's John Roethlisberger as Curtis strikes out Will Smith? When's the last time the Browns had a quarterback start 10 or more games in two consecutive seasons? Like Baker, Mayfield will probably dio.
Yep, and I feel like that, you know, and I feel like that team is, to be completely honest, the fool's gold, although I think therefore into right now, they seem like they're a fool's gold record team.
And what I what I mean by that is they seem like they should be maybe two in in two and 43 and three.
Um, you know Baker Mayfield is a great quarterback, but I feel like Odell just does not wanna be there.
Um, and I think I have a feeling he's going to be requesting a trade soon.
Yeah, then also keep mining.
Nick Chubb is out the week 11.
He suffered that injury in the first quarter against Dallas.
He's top three back in the league, is what I would say.
He has been dominant since he Grant when since he left, Georgia came to the Browns.
He's a yards after contact is where he excels.
The Browns are missing in, but they also have a top 15 back right behind with Kareem Hunt, who has played well this season.
So the Browns have it going offensively.
It's later on the Browns.
The A F C North, regardless, in my opinion, will have three teams in the playoffs.
The Division I don't have one playoff team will the the A F C East, and it will be the Buffalo Bills.
I think Cam Newton, in his first season, won't win the division.
I think the Bills are bound to finally win the division again, and I agree with that and going back to what you said about injuries, something that I hate talking about because I am a Rams fan.
The Rams loss against the 40 Niners.
What do you think? Because they have been unpredictable team due to injuries.
But also, you know, Jimmy Garoppolo These past few games hasn't looked himself.
Maybe look himself looked like himself a little bit Maurin that Rams game dominating the Rams.
But overall, do you think the 40 Niners could go all the way this season, or what do you think is in store for them? No, it's it's the issues with receivers.
A lot of young, talented receivers like Brandon I Uke, rookie out of Arizona State.
Deebo, Samuel from South Carolina.
It's just, and George Cadle can only do so much.
But it's also the running game that is been in a question mark with Rahim most certain Tevin Coleman.
They've been out for most of the season.
Most finally returned last week but then got hurt in the fourth quarter.
Jerick McKinnon is another guy who is missed the last two years of his career with Thorne A C L's.
There's a lot of question marks in the San Francisco backfield, and because of that, I think that the top two teams at the end of the year in that division will be Seattle and Los Angeles.
That Rams defense has been suffocating most of their opponents with Aaron Donald.
Number 99 has been unbelievable throughout his career.
Of Donald is first ballot Hall of Famer.
Here comes Joe Kelly.
Interesting, interesting, brought in Joe Kelly because of Oh, this is not okay. Interesting.
You're not gonna enjoy that one.
Interesting that they brought in Joe Kelly.
We were talking about Baez going the eighth and the ninth after Bias, having that 123 inning.
So it's interesting that they brought in Joe Kelly.
I personally like Joe Kelly as a reliever and outside of baseball for what he did to the Houston Astros.
But But overall, I it's very interesting why they brought in Joe Kelly Meadows riff on a deep center field.
Robbing him at the wall is Bellenger, so Bell Inter takes a run away from the raise.
Their but the wall isn't too high.
It's not like you're at the Green Monster.
So Meadows with one of the best hits tonight for the Rays felons.
ER just makes a better play in the field, and the Dodgers have had, honestly, a home home field advantage here, even though playing in Arlington, Texas, that's because they've been here for the past two weeks playing the Atlanta Braves, you know, in a seven game Siris on they've just made Arlington, Texas their home.
Even if you look at the fans, I'd say it's about a 75 25.
25% advantage of Dodger fans in the crowd, If you just.
If the camera just pans over to the fans, you basically only see Dodgers fans.
And also, this is a big market team.
This is also the first year stadium for the Rangers.
The Rays, of course.
Throughout the season, the Dodgers also played here because the NL West in the A L West.
They only did the East playing the East Central West because of co vid to restrict travel.
But the Dodgers have played here what at least 12 times this season.
This is the first time the Rays were playing a game at Global I field.
But actually it is.
I really thought that they would be doing this in L.
A and Tampa because there's only two teams left with limited fans at Tropicana Field in Dodger Stadium, was really looking forward to that possibility.
But it is what it is.
I'm not crazy about what the MLB has done with the bubble for the world.
I think once you're down to two teams like with the Lightning and the Stars, Stanley Cup should have been played in Tampa and Dallas.
The the NBA was the only one where I think that that you couldn't really allow fans in, because that's because it's such an an inclusive environment.
Such a enclosed environment, you know, um, similar to I wouldn't say super similar Thio Tropicana Field.
But it is similar in the sense that Tropicana Field is an enclosed field and you know, they would have to take that roof.
And I think it's a retractable roof, isn't it? At Tropicana? No, it's it's not.
But regardless, the roof is so high that it would be okay.
It would be fine.
But yeah, it's, you know, it's such a more inclusive environment.
Ah, small environment at a basketball game that I think there was no possibility for fans and it was enjoyable to see virtual fans I thought that was a great product.
A great idea that the MBA thought off. Oh, yeah.
Hose Margo's breaks out looking.
He thought that he was, for sure gonna take first base.
And now Tampa Bay, down to their last out.
And something interesting that I picked up from Skip Bayless is, you know, is the fact that n b a the N b a.
Usually does it.
First, the NFL perfects it, and then the MLB usually makes the most money off of it.
So we could maybe see.
I wouldn't say virtual fans, but more of the billboard, not billboards.
What the court cardboard cutouts and that type of thing in the MLB.
I don't know if you see this, but here's my cardboard cut out from this season.
Yeah, what did you have to pay, like, 50 bucks? Or was it included in your It was 60 but it was pretty cool because I saw it a few times on TV.
And plus, if the Rays win the World Series, it's kind of like a little piece of history you should go to get Oh, you're going to see this play.
It's a very interesting play, but you should go get that sign next season.
A Seeger throws out Wendell at first game over.
The Dodgers win Game one.
So three wins away from winning their first World Series since, I believe 1988.
Joe Kelly closes it out.
The wind belongs to Clayton Kershaw.
Dave Roberts with the right move tonight putting in Kershaw.
I thought that was gonna be, you know, a volatile situation.
It could have went either way with Kershaw statistics in the playoffs, but he had a phenomenal night.
One earned run on Was it six innings or five innings? Six innings up, six innings, six innings? I'm very impressed By Kevin Kerr Meyer taking Kurchaloi Yard.
I would really like to see care Meyer lead things off for the Rays tomorrow.
Yandy Diaz did get a hit in the leadoff spot.
He'll probably be in the lineup tomorrow.
Actually, no, he won't start G man Joy, but expect some and it's good.
Also, that the Rays bullpen was not totally emptied was just Fleming, John Curtis and Ryan Yarbrough that pitched you.
You empty the bottom of your bullpen, just half of it so still Nick Anderson.
Loup? Not really.
Aaron Loup isn't crazy.
But Peter Fairbanks is well, he closed out the Astro Siri's.
Well, yeah, and I would have eso.
It's I would have.
Would it be Blake Snell tomorrow? Or it would be, I think Blake Snell tomorrow.
Let me check my mom.
Could you please take the conversation to the gas? Was like, Okay.
Wednesday it is Walker.
I think it's official that Walker Buehler is going to start tomorrow.
But I think they would match that up with Blakes now.
Yeah, it should be. Snell.
No, I don't think they put it out, though yet, but I do.
Dodgers have put out that they're starting.
Blakes are that they're starting Walker Buehler tomorrow.
You know anything, picture, but they could change their pickup, but I believe it will be Walker Buehler for the Dodgers on the mountain.
Mom? Yeah, it should be Snell Buehler.
And then Game three would possibly be Charlie Morton start.
No, it wouldn't be Charlie Morton, maybe.
Well, since the Rays did have a few extra days off after Game seven, it could be Morton but I would think a bullpen day would be safe.
Well, it's been a pleasure to be on.
It's been a pleasure with you.
Feel Frito, reach out whenever and I'll reach out to awesome.
Are you on? How many days do you want? Are you on just like every single game or just Curier? Well, here's what I did and I did the first about 3.
5 weeks of the race season.
Then I stopped because my classes were starting in Arizona State.
Then I would do.
I would did playoff hockey, like every day for about a month or so did all the Stanley I did most of the Stanley Cup games and most of the playoff games for specific teams. Like the Stars.
I was actually rooting for the stars of the Lightning.
Then, after the Stanley Cup, I took a few breaks.
I started on a podcast.
I'm doing a podcast for the student radio station.
I guess you, which is fun.
You're a freshman in college, right? No, I'm a senior or your That's right.
So where you looking at for going to school? Do you know yet looking at, you know, a bunch of different schools.
My main choices.
I think that's gonna be a fun school to attack.
Going down to New Orleans.
No, my friend goes there. You should.
He's playing on the baseball team. He's a picture.
He went to my high school.
That's really cool.
Yeah, they're the one.
You know, when I toured the school, it's funny what they said.
They, um, my tour guide said that they have for their basketball team.
They have the smallest stadium that will air on ESPN, so it's very funny.
It's That's a fact.
You know, stadium that will air on ESPN.
I would have never known that if you didn't tell me that s 02 Lane, would you wanna go to USC or U C L A.
Or? I mean, I don't wanna I'd like toe go out of Los Angeles, you know, see different people.
Yeah, So it would be funny.
You would be going from California to Louisiana, and then I'd be going, I would eventually be going from Florida to Arizona.
It's like we're just totally crossing paths.
We are, actually, you know, when I went on the plane, we went right by, Um um Tucson.
So that was very interesting.
E don't know if you watch Family Guy, but they make fun of Tucson.
Well, they make fun of Arizona a lot in Florida.
They Peter becomes.
But there are a lot of stereotypes about those two states.
Yeah, it's, but I mean, to be honest, Florida is definitely there, and it's because they're swing states.
That's like the crazy people.
And then there's the the educated people in honors Q and honors.
Yeah, way don't have to be silent about that.
It's just like, let me see you.
I'm just, um I think I think overall, Trump is leading by just a point in Florida, but I think the average is leaning towards Biden's.
That's Yeah, Florida will be already vote, and I don't I don't even think I have toe.
I don't even think I have to say for who, You know that.
I think 32 million votes have already voted, so that's a very cool Yeah, just going out.
If anybody's here.
Four people are here.
Vote vote, vote.
Joe Biden, Joe Biden, The third House, e like a thing like in like the you know, But at seventh inning stretch and this is brought to you by I will vote dot com go out the boat.
Did you see the Troy Aikman Joe Buck thing yesterday? I did not. What happened.
So Troy Aikman and Joe Buck apparently were caught on a hot mic.
I think they may have done on purpose, but Aikman was saying, like, you know, these flyovers that's wasting a lot of jet fuel.
And then Joe Buck says, That's your hard work and money and taxpaying dollars at worth.
You know, you won't be seeing that with a camel.
A Biden ticket partner.
Eso Basically, they endorse them, they endorse them.
And so funny thing that people triggered on Twitter because you in honors, you're you're probably a pedophile to Detroit s Troy Aikman and Joe Buck Me.
That's such a good crew.
But speaking of Joe Buck, nobody works harder in the broadcasting business than that guy.
It's just every night.
He we did the he did the Bucks game yesterday, and then he flies out to Arlington to do this game.
Someone who I have a lot of props for is a Rod.
He's such a knowledgeable your love to hear him with Joe Buck sometimes as well as Matt Vasgersian, who I believe went to USC.
Um, great to great announcers.
That best version is one of my favorite announcers.
Yeah, I think the TBS broadcasters frankly, we're so bad if you listen to them.
Yes, for the well, they were just doing the American League, I think, for the most part.
But the thing is, broadcasters that air nationally or that work for a major network don't know as much as the local broadcasters dio like the ones that specialize in one team.
It shows though it Oh, definitely.
It shows, you know, sometimes, especially I think Mawr in the NBA.
Yeah, you know, actually, you do see it more often in the MLB, these rosters or bigger, it's harder.
Thio, you know, see a lot of different guys getting called up and called down.
But in the MBA, it is occurring as well.
So yeah, I think the easiest sport to be to do for major network is football because everybody knows the Bradys and the Rogers of the world and everybody knows the main.
There's just not a lot of players that could make a difference that nobody knows about.
The Bills fifth string receiver is the equivalent to the I don't know the back up the relief pitcher that didn't make the NLCS roster.
All right, I gotta get going.
I have one more question.
What do you think of Trevor Bauer? I would love to see me either go to the Giants or to the Rays.
That would be a really interesting things you say to the Rays.
Oh, I don't know if the rates put in a bid for him.
I'd love to see it because he probably had the best season in this shortened season.
It was a everything somebody asked him on Twitter and they said, Would you? Because he's been out spoken hater of the Houston Astros.
Um, like all of us, but just had to put that in there.
But somebody asked him, Would you go the Astros if they offered you big money? And he said, Um, he said, I look at anything, so that was very interesting.
So I think every, you know, If you put a bit on him, he'll he'll look, Yeah, I would like, I think would be interesting if you went back to Cleveland.
But I highly doubt that happens.
Yeah, it's weird because he's played in.
Yes, he played in Arizona, but for the majority of his career he played in Cleveland.
Then he played in.
You know, Cincinnati has played a lot in Ohio.
I think he might want to get out of Ohio.
Yeah, I know it's a boring state.
Cardio Ohio people out there.
O h i o once are football players leave the program? They do sketchy things, by the way.
So I was watching the Alabama Georgia game the other night.
I saw that Neil made a nice play.
You know? Evan, Neil, he's it.
Oh, line for He's on the online for Alabama and he went thio I m g when we were there.
Um, very interesting.
He was a big dude.
I think he's 3056 like nine.
See the Onley player that I remember.
Actually, I don't know if you know this story with me, and you know Trey Sanders.
You remember him? I think so. Yeah.
So he he had game used your Brill Peppers gloves and he sold them to me for, you know, like I think it was 60 or something.
I don't I hope that's not a recruiting violation, but regardless, he's been.
He was hurt the first year, and he said he was gonna win the Heisman.
But I don't know if he's even.
Is he still with Alabama? I hope he is.
I think he's with Alabama.
Yeah, he's just heard.
Or Najee Harris is to think he might be red shirting.
Yeah, that would make sense because he was hurt last year.
And then he's Yeah, he's a redshirt freshman.
Good for him. I hope he really does.
Well, yeah, I have no doubt will be in the NFL in a few years.
Because Alabama's produced Mark Henn are not Mark Henry.
What a phenomenal night. Oh, my God.
The other night he is so and Ryan Tannehill, you finally put Tannehill on a real team.
And look what he's able todo with dolphins.
I mean, I'm surprised that the dolphin dolphin hater That's hilarious.
Yeah, I'm really shocked that they're starting to, uh, for the next game.
Yeah, I think you got to give more time to develop, but because look what they did with Josh Rosen in Arizona, you threw him into the mix with a tougher line in a tough surrounding casters. Like the dog.
He's back up for who now, but Rosen is on the practice squad of the Bucks.
Oh, there we go.
Okay, he's not even he's not even on the Yeah, it was fun to see him at U C l. A. Though.
It was a great quarterback, Yeah, he was great.
That comeback against A and M, I think nobody will ever forget.
It's, you know, I want to it to succeed, but we all know that the hardest sport to go straight into from you know, college is the NFL in football in general.
Is you already basically developed as going into the MBA? Basically developed going into the MLB? Yes, you gain strength, but going from college freshman and going to the draft and going into the NFL.
Those players, they're so much bigger, so much faster.
It's such a big jump.
That's where That's where um met where men among boys become boys among men. Exactly.
All right, I gotta get going.
I'd love to have this conversation on another night.
Love your text, me and I'll jump on.
Um, yeah, for sure, man, for sure. My brother.
All right. Good night.
I'm rooting for those rays.
I don't wanna end the stream.
I just wanna hop out of here.
How do I do this? Um, you can you want me? I could just end it.
You wanna end? All right, Go ahead.
You wanna end your street?
