Sadness, sadness, a sadness.
I said, this a sadness society.

And it's apparently lawsuit season.
And, of course, lots of topics from you guys, the fans that we happen toe pull from the Internet machine earlier as opposed what we're gonna pull from you guys here on the stream along with a friend.

So that's youtube dot com slash dodgers Nation TV.
The good news is there's less me on YouTube, which is good.
Our boy Chris says Clint had a 32nd premature ejaculation.
We have a pill for that problem.
We're not talking that pill today.
I'm just saying that's over time.
What hurting me is already playing at Coachella.
I don't understand. What talk is delicate.
And here Is that a band? That a band? I don't know what you **** hips your kids are into these days.
Oh, you know, he should ask.
You should ask Littlefoot because she knows kid things kick cool kid things.
Thank you, Frank.
Talk L A says that our campuses on What? Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Didn't you, like, abandon the Internet? Thanks for hanging out with us.
Frankly, Miss Return of Frank Frank 2020 man, No mofo Moses Nat Showing us old fashioned baseball winds in the postseason.
And I think that's a nice segue way, Thio.
What you want to talk about there, buddy? Oh, pal.
Oh, Brooke, Um, the wind.
Two years for this Astros fans suck it.
That's all I have to say about it.
Really? I'm really, really, really, really liking the fact that the Astros air sad all those clips of like, the sad Astros fans with, like, their hands over their heads and over their eyes and stuff like that and pulling their hair.
This is just warm.
The soul after a terrible, icy, cold exit to the playoffs.
Oh, you just make you feel that much better.
I didn't think I would be cheering for the nationals.
I didn't think that I would be hoping that her Gerard Gerard Oh, Barba her heart Opara would be a World Series champion.
I didn't think I would be singing baby shark in my living room.
How much are you drinking on the weekdays? Easy is decent.
Follow my twitter.
Well, this has been a glass shattering moment, guys. Well, yeah.
Anyways, I really have been cheering for the Nationals.
I'm sure a lot of you guys have to.
Some people find it really hard to cheer for the team that knocked you out play house.
But in my mind, it's like, Hey, we lost the team that won the World Series, which we done the past couple years anyway, so we might as well just keep that ball rolling.
Anyways, I don't know if you guys like seeing sad Astros fans, but it really just made me happy.
Made me feel a little less sad from the early exit in the playoffs.
And ah, I really, really enjoyed seeing Justin Verlander gets beat up on.
Yeah, this the between Cole and Verlander, who were both 20 game winners.
I'm sure a lot of you guys saw the stat or the number or whatever they are.
The Dodgers always gotta find a way into a bad situation.
And here they did, where the last time back to back 20 game winner started for World Siris teams, it was Drysdale and Colfax who lost the same way that Verlander and Cole did.
So that's just and I guess that would be Is that ironic? I don't know.
I mean, if you're a lattice, Moore said, If that's her, I said I was really is ironic.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, you say that.
I have a very specific question for you here.
Broken. It comes from our friend Bob Sacramento.
I might have a very specific Why so much hate for the Stros? Um, well, here's the thing.
They stole a world siris from us, and that's it.
That's all I really have to say.
But did they steal it or did we just listen? We were like three pitches away from going into Houston up two games to nothing in the World Series.
Yeah, you're, like, three pitches away. Then can Liam.
And you know where we could report putting that on a shirt? I'm pretty sure Kenley happens something like that. Especially when he leaves.
The Dodgers were definitely making that shirt.
Uh, that's the hate, and I don't really, you know, Astros fans suck.
I'm just gonna put it out there.
I'm gonna say it straight forward.
A lot of Astros fans are.
They act like they're really good people on their humble, down to good old Texas boys, which my family's from Texas.
So I'm allowed to say that, and I can tell you they absolutely are not.
And they're absolutely not a humble winner.
And I cannot stand their fans on Twitter because they're a terrible fan base.
Not as bad as Padres fan base, though.
Padres fan base your garbage.
Well, you did get called Isis.
It's to buy them.
At least you know, stands have been done that yet also fire Phil.
He is a good padre fans.
So wherever you're at Friday, you get to meet his mom.
I think he's dead.
They're still working on that.
I think they're still doing it.
Hopefully, hopefully people get filled in New York.
Nerdy Dodger says Javy Getting shelled is my favorite show.
Yes, Adrian Gonzalez, friend of the stream over there, and YouTube says Brooke needs a chill in the alcohol.
No, you take those foul words out of your mouth or Adriana, you pick your hobby.
I picked mine, Gail.
100% hit the nail on the head.
Last night's game, Of course, Last night, being the Wednesday game, Game two of the World Series was glorious and all.
And was there have this has not four Dodger fans like still, we're never going to get over that hurt of 2017? Never.
Because, Well, I paid money for that ticket we paid.
You *******s paid money for that Internet, but yeah, but how fantastic has this 24 hours been just to just destroy that organization? Of course they had.
They completely eft up the whole Sports Illustrated Stephanie abstain thing with their their assist form.
Now former general manager.
That was embarrassing.
That was pathetic.
The way that came down and took them that love, I guess kudos ish for them to fire him, as opposed to just letting it ride and, you know, yeah, but his suspension starts next season.
You look very ill, but, um, like as they like, not actual credit, but and that's not even cool.
But still, at least it's done.
The damage is done.
They're like they did the damage to the guy, and now he's gone.
And hopefully it doesn't get a job in baseball again.
You know what? They still employ Roberto Osuna.
And I understand that's the whole of their Dodger can of worms that we're not looking to get out.
We're not there yet, but, um, none of our guys in the front office have said those type of things directly while making eye contact.
It was very clear what was being said and why it was being said.
I'm sure there were also some drinks involved because that information booze, he's, um listen, the Astros air, making it really easy to root against them in the playoffs and making it really easy to hate them and make them the the bad guy in this situation into in that situation.
You look at the nationals the way they're playing ball, what they've overcome this whole year, like they were at the 500 mark, like below the 500 marks for a good, decent chunk of the season.
They absolutely did not look like a playoff team.
They lost Bryce Harper to free agency.
They had nobody.
And now they're in the world.
They're up two games, nothing on a team where you just cannot stand the front office.
You can't stand the things that are coming out of it.
And even after they fire that guy, Jeff, lunch hour or however the hell you say his last name, the Duke comes out.
It is just makes it worse.
Like after the firing.
It's like, Oh, hey, did you get a chance to talk to a reporter and apologized to her? Yet? It was like, No, you know, I've been busy.
It's like she's in the room.
She's right, like, you know, Row three.
So they not only did they fumble, the initial statement wears like, Oh, this is this is B s.
We don't know what she's talking about.
That no one, none of our guys would never do that.
And then it changed.
Theo, we're gonna investigate.
Because guess what? MLB was breathing down their ass real quick like and then afterwards, it was like, Oh, this is a very serious matter.
And I don't understand why anybody even making fun of this And then still, twice in their statements, though, they fumbled, cause it's like anybody who chooses to be offended by this. We're sorry to you.
I mean, obviously they didn't say it quite like that.
But that's the way it reads to me.
And I'm happy for so much pain going thio the Houstons because they deserve it because their pain, they Well, listen, they you know they got 2017 World Series.
You chill out for a couple years.
They just hang out for a little while.
Um, Ashley says the Astros air trash, Yes or no? Trash troves.
Houston trash froze.
Ah, that's a good band name to thank you, John Isles.
I love John aisles over on YouTube.
There, Alanis Morissette learn from where we're dying.
Unkovic Rain on your wedding day is actually whether it is not irony.
I call it an inconvenience.
That's that's not even poor planning cause you can't predict the weather.
But I think you can predict at this point the Nats sweeping the world.
Siris are at least getting it in five.
I think our five remember.
But that's S D Dodger team fills.
Listen, is it the best? You don't know him? He says fire feel is halfway there.
So he's almost at his goal.
That's good for him to go find him at Friar Phil, I think I don't know.
Is that the PhDs? Good dude, our girl Julie on the dinner and she might be here in the stream.
So what up? Generally, she had some hot points that she wanted us to bring up Thio.
I don't even know if it's Ah, we're going to speak on behalf of her.
Just her take on this particular Siri's and I guess, more so game, too.
But I like Gerardo Parra.
Bootleg Altuve, eh? It's like it's all to be without the talent anymore, I guess.
Retired lt They have retooled the tool.
I'm walking away from that science trying that hard with these.
Bregman is buttery Butterfingers Yesterday, which was just like So, Gloria, what did you see? The thing is, like, how many runs did you allow the score? And he's like this.
Everybody else heard the Benny Hill theme, Right? Right.
Uh, old yes, totally nailed it.
So, uh, she also said the astros air fraud.
Is anybody in here agree with frauds or they fry? Okay, I'm gonna I'm gonna put somebody on blast here, and he's not gonna like it, but hopefully he's asleep on these ghosts.
Um, I remember a certain man who shall we realize that man who shall remain the same name as you saying that the Astros were gonna roll any team that they face in the playoffs in four games.
And, you know, I just like to point that out, that that's not happening.
So they are frauds, because the whole season they've been posing as a good team.
Yeah, suddenly they're not.
What watched astros take all four games now to be fair than that Rolling destiny there straight up a team of destiny.
That's why I always told you that in September I was like, It's all about momentum going into playoffs.
Playoffs are all about momentum.
how you entered the playoffs. That's how you interact.
Over has nothing to do with your team for the rest of the year.
Anything your team did before that.
Put that out the window, play the hand, play what's going on.
And that's how you know everyone should blame.
Is John Skater? Yeah, yeah.
I mean, I'm gonna blame him no matter what cause I hate him and I hate his stupid face.
He's a bad person.
Rhino over on YouTube Says Brakeman, Pimp, The homer in the first made to critical mistakes in the seventh.
Gloria, it really was the hell out of that timing.
Immediate Dodger Love is rooting for the Nats are best Or is it our base? One says we should be slapping it for the Dodgers space.
We got Littlefoot in streams saying that we love Friar Phil, which we do.
Frightful is a nice kid, good friend of the show Elm.
Elm Street says Nets will sweep these southern Roaches.
I would not be surprised to see that that happened.
They deserve it. They deserve to be sweat.
Basically, the nets are embarrassing everyone, and that's okay.
But how cool, Weird, Wild awful is to see so many of our Internet friends think about it. We were watching.
Most of us were watching that that game, too.
And all of our our Dodger people are rooting for the Nats in the best way that we can, which is with you, soup talking and, um and funny means I like it.
I I've told everybody This is a really weird part of the year on Ah, Twitter, especially for you guys that are on Twitter, because I follow a lot of Dodger fans, mostly Dodger fans, in fact, and now we're transitioning Thio pretty much basketball season or football season, and I don't share those teams with anybody on Twitter.
I mean, I'm a Saints fan and the Lakers fan and sometimes not everybody who's the Dodgers fan is the Lakers fan.
There's like six Clippers fans in the world, and 70 2% of our Twitter followers are Laker friends, though I don't see they go, so I have those people.
But then I get like weird, you know, heat fans and awful Celtics fans can't be a Dodger fan in a Celtics fan that no, that doesn't work.
I don't know that that.
So we got another got another very important question here from Cam Riddle.
Had it? Brooke it a job Do doesn't know **** about this guy.
Every single week tells me that he hates me and my name and that I'm a girl.
Happy opposite day there.
You should really keep Cam.
Don't block camera, though, because I want this guy to keep coming on and spewing hate because I like to see him salty, but because he's sitting at home right now.
So we got Jose Rod, who's a Patriots fan here.
Like why, Anyway? I don't know.
Again, I t kind of wrap this this point of the segment at the section up about this.
It's the beyond the fact that we would have hated the Yankees or hated the Astros.
The Nazer are Ah, good team.
They're very like exciting team to watch right now, and more importantly, they're just filled with a bunch of the former Dodgers or a bunch of Dodger killers.
So maybe like if they win, they'll lose that power against us that sort of thing.
Yeah, The one plus one equals six.
We got some people talking smack about us.
We appreciate that.
I got my boy Sandra in here backing us up, saying anything is better than John Buck.
I'm gonna put that on my length and better than John Buck.
It's going. I understood.
Well, he's a catcher.
Were better than the catcher to the retired.
Well, it will be veteran of like cab, not, however, many decades.
Charles Hammell brings up a good point.
The S I cover is coming back to haunt the Astros.
Yeah, I think we had that.
So that was great.
Hate sports in general is other news.
Other news is very important because there are still Dodger headlines out there in the world.
Thankfully, some more.
Or somehow, uh, today it was announced that Cody Bellinger, as everybody expected, is ah, finalist for the gold glove and right field, even though he bounced around playing a lot of center field by the end of the season.
Played a lot of first base, but he's going up against Hayward and Harper, I That's like the easiest belly bomb.
I mean, that's gotta be That's got to be a key and you shoo in like he's got a I can't see it.
Not the dude had a phenomenal defense of season, if you watch.
Just like he really got overshadowed by his offensive output this year because he obviously had a pretty ridiculous offensive output.
But the dude's defense was ridiculous.
I mean, he had, like, how many? I don't even know.
How many outfield is this the head? But the ones he did have were like, should not have happened at all.
I'm not mistaken.
He was far and away the best with, um, with the defensive Rose State defenses.
Runs save, defensive rubs saved different.
She'll walk away from that.
One will walk away.
But yeah, I think that's, um I think he went away with the most of those points.
Hey, I like your cover yourself with the camera.
Will you see that? Yeah, I'm really proud of you for that one.
No, I think that's an easy win for him.
And if not, I've always said this and I've told several people that I've even told ah, uh, friend of Joe Bill Plunkett this several times that I really, really, really.
I really think that the voting system for baseball awards is one of the most flawed things in our baseball.
There's no reason you should be winning silver sluggers and Golden Gloves just because you're a good player.
That doesn't That's not how that people literally yeah, exactly that camp, you know, that's all that Exhibit A. That's all you need.
But people are literally getting Gold Glove awards because they hit 35 home runs and it's like my own.
That's not what that's for.
Thank ust Dodgertown for helping me out.
It is 22 defensive runs saved for Cody Bellinger in right field in the year of Our Lord.
Joe says Platinum Glove for Bellenger? Probably not.
I think they moved him around too much, and until they really figure out the the way they're gonna work like utility players, it probably should be a utility.
Maybe it's just ke ke on that, I guess.
Yeah, there should be like Advanced Utility Man would honestly probably baseball.
Now Sean Higgins should be on that award anyways.
No other Dodgers are on the list that does that.
Does that seem right to you, boys? I mean, just in terms of being the guy, but we all know it's been very bad.
Well, I mean, you look at third base to and who would be going up against, Like, there are some sick gloves at third base, especially in the National League, and both in both.
I've never seen a guy catch a ball with the shins before the way you have, so that's very, uh, lumpy.
You know, you look at first base.
No one really logged enough time there by themselves to pull over that second base.
I'm surprised you kick it, get anything.
I mean, he was just He wasn't good.
Yeah, a plane that wasn't good.
Either one of you would have a good catcher hall.
It's a terrible center fielder.
Yeah, and ah, Jack is a growing toddler.
Wait, have the thing? Yeah, it makes the first base gold love. It just needs to happen.
Even our pictures.
You know, even our pictures in years past have been pretty good defensively, But this year they didn't really do anything spectacular.
Didn't really happen.
Other things that are happening in the news.
Um, you try to do something nice for the stadium and of course, it's gonna meet some pushback because unfortunately, they have to have town halls that ask people's opinions.
And I know about you guys, but I think most people's opinions are trash.
Maybe that's just me.
I don't care about anybody's opinion.
That's why I do podcasts.
Wait, because they can't talk back to me.
Oh, they tweet back.
But, um, our friend Randy Dodgers Randy, everybody, she's a nice lady.
Now she, of course, Randi's great people.
And she did get a chance to go out to It was a town hall about the off season renovations that are supposed to go well that are already underway at Dodger Stadium.
They already have the all the pavilion seats out.
So I'm sure that's gonna be kind of wild Thio Just sit straight on brick.
But, uh, things they're going under way.
And they did have the town hall yesterday.
I think it was so we had some beautiful bean footage to roll here.
Games bearing how you're so essentially the locals.
The town folk don't like the noise that happens, and and maybe we could, uh, we could talk to our friends, deejay severe and need a rule about that.
Like you guys got to be so party like, you know, it's it's a school night, but I thought they mean they did take measures to kind of channel the sound inward, I said in word towards the stadium, as opposed out.
But obviously the town spoke the locals there, they bring up fine points that has allowed the traffic sucks that they have tried to talk to the organization and then been, you know, kind of pushed back on it.
I thought people don't like change.
I mean, that's pretty much the thing people really don't like. Change.
Um, I get the renovations part.
I don't really get the, you know, stadium renovations part.
I get that they don't want more of a party to happen, But listen, that parties come in all star games coming next to you, so you better get ready for that because there's no way they're turning the volume down during that.
Um, I do get Thea, you know, like the sky tram thing.
You know that thing Yeah, I do get them, like getting upset about that.
I can understand that a little bit.
That's a little invasive, and it's gonna be going right over homes.
And it's gonna be kind of trashy to look at, I'm sure.
But if you do own that property, might I suggest selling at an all time high? Yeah, but I also think that's that's kind of a **** move.
It is for sure it is.
I just sell just There's also people who just went there, and they don't really have much of a choice because that's where they're stuck at.
So they don't really have that opportunity.
So it's unfortunate, but I I mean, I hate to say it, but it doesn't Nothing's gonna change from that, like you're not going to suddenly stop being loud during ballgames or having a 9 30 cutoff time for games or some crap like as there's not gonna happen.
So I think the best thing that they could do the most helpful thing to the people in those neighborhoods is to ease traffic through those neighborhoods because that's probably one of the best things that they could do for them.
That was actually help her car.
Do you have one car? Bumper Car 2020 baby.
I'm gonna make it happen.
Having a back road coming down from the 1 10 that would kill that one's doing that like clothes that No, they don't.
Well, that's my route into into Dodger Stadium.
Plus Plus, when you have the when you're going up through sunset, like straight through the front gates.
If you take the back road around that, you're literally going through, like wine, neighborhoods of people, you're just like and it's backed up in the streets.
So I always think about being those people.
And I'm like, Okay, it's about six o'clock right now.
They're coming home from work, and I would be ****ed if I came home.
And I was like, I'm 20 feet away from my house, but it's gonna take me 45 minutes to park in my driveway like I'd be living.
So I definitely understand their frustrations and that *** they should excuse me.
They should block off the streets, even if it makes parking in Dodger Stadium or difficult.
They do block off a lot of the streets and it doesn't make enough of a difference.
And it's still gonna ruin what happens if you live on the streets and you got to try to prove that you live on the streets.
It's easy, like I live right there.
Uh, you know what? I think the doctor should just buy them all blue birds, and then they would know that I gotta talk to magic. Make it happen.
Magic? Yeah. There's magic for everything.
Some bills at it.
Michael says Solano is the best way up there.
Solano is the way that I take the Dodger Stadium and they don't You guys go taking him.
The new stadium was there before moving.
Yeah, you gotta know the history of that area.
Just be who you know, like be cool again. It's a tough situation.
Milton says Live with it, which we all.
I mean, we're fans.
We would enjoy it.
We would be. I would love that.
Give you some binoculars.
But they're not all baseball fans now.
Probably none of them.
I imagine they might have moved in.
There is baseball fans, and then slowly, great grew did to test it.
Man must imagine hating baseball because of where you live? Yeah, like San Francisco.
Um, we do have to find out who lives on the top houses behind the parking.
Have you seen the guy that sits in the middle of the show? Evans wants a house, remember? You know he wants a trash shanty that's off that one street with the road once that hotel e Love it.
I still love Gary never switches the camera.
No, he just has talking it. That's fine.
That's that's going to do.
It doesn't put you behind us, I think.
Um, Other than that, though, we also have some former Dodgers in the news because that's important because we got to talk about former doctors.
And no, we're not talking about Jonathan Broxton.
Oh, but he does have a brew.
You know he's working at Ah uh, probably del Taco Broxton Seems like a Del taco kind of boy.
He is not good enough for Don't.
He's a Taco Bell man, David Ross hired as the Cubs manager.
Let me let me tell you this before I let you give your immediately Poppet are perfectly timing with his pop up of Dave Roberts is a lousy manager Dave Roberts did not manage before getting the job coaching experience, though this is true and David Ross has been doing what ESPN has.
What has he been doing? Hasn't Grampa Rossi been essentially coaching for the last like or wasn't even last eight years of his career? No advisor? Slightly.
Yeah, but as a former player, if you're an adviser, that just basically means you just show up.
You don't do anything like that.
We have plenty of advisers, Tom.
He is technically an adviser, and all he does is yell borderline racist things that people and love you.
I love you, Tommy World.
In spring, um, it seems very strange to me to take a team that I can still compete for the next decent amount of years.
5 to 7 years keep competed a very high level and bringing in somebody who has zero coaching experience does have respect in the clubhouse does have that.
He carries that wait, But does he have respect from everybody? I don't know about that.
There's new guys that are of no one.
Not everybody knows them necessarily.
It's not like it's the same team.
He just left, and on top of that, he's never coached.
I mean, I don't know if he's done like Little League or something.
There's definitely a lot of knows, too, that it's strange.
He's very strange.
You're going the complete opposite spectrum to from Joe Maddon, whose like 900 plays baseball the right way.
And let's be riel.
David Ross is gonna be right there about the same thing, right? But, yeah, I I do agree with you on the fact that you're bringing in somebody with this team that's really, like teetering on the point of falling apart, just completely shattering, you know, two years in a row.
They missed the playoffs of not they definitely like we're very bad this year, Uh, in missing any any opportunity at at playing the baseball in October.
But this? Yeah, this move just seemed like we know you whatever, Like, just just show up.
You're well? Yeah, We'll try you.
Let's go for it.
He's a cheap alternative.
Yeah. I mean, you think about like you're a cheap.
Obviously, Gabe Kapler had, like, a very talented team and couldn't get anything done with him over two seasons and he had some managerial experience.
He was like a minor league manager back in, like he doesn't six or something like that.
And then, you know, he was the director of player development, which is Leif use plugged into players and he knew it was going on and he knew their routines and things like that.
And then he went into management and then he sucked.
That's not to say Ross is gonna suck or anything like that.
It just means it's a pretty big gamble on a guy.
That's your friend.
Pretty much, yeah, it really is.
I mean, it's not much more than that.
Like, this is your friend we got, we got Ah, it's gonna be a Dumpster Fire with Ross.
But you'll like Charles Hammell here.
I thought the SD higher was the strangest Not David Ross.
Yeah, the Padres hired Jingle right Tingle me, Kringle's or something like that.
I don't have no idea.
I literally have no idea who that man is.
Where did he come from? What's his actual human name came from Texas.
He was the not Ron Washington in Texas because I guess they don't like Coke fiends and in San Diego.
But let's gets fair.
But Peter, my Kringle right Jace Tingler called Tingler.
You gotta be tingle or something like that. I don't know.
My sense is tingling.
Okay, that I don't think this is something that you just gave so much money to.
Manny Machado Machado is over here being like, Oh, I want my boy, Buck Showalter.
I watched the pod.
You know what's going on, right? It's the ****ytics is taking over and people are using those computers and they're saying, Oh, we don't have to spend too much money on a high profile.
Who? High profile.
You know what's funny is he coaches like the Dominican and Venezuelan summer and fall leagues like that's what he's been doing.
Like he hasn't even not to say that he can't do it here.
But it's just a really that seems like an odd higher for the Padres, considering they're building a whole franchise right now, like that's their goal is to build a franchise.
So I would agree it's probably more ****ytics based on anything else.
They need somebody that they could pull the strings on, and he's the guy for that because he has no pole.
Any managers is just turning puppets right now. Exactly.
That's all he is. So dingleberry.
Dingleberry the job s d. Dr.
Tim says that fryer Phil calls them Ting ding ding ding ding, baby. Oh, man.
Mitt, I have Ah, Braulio said angle McQueen.
Kobe's I I watched the Padres fans go through it today on Twitter, Man, like, I just kind of poke my head in tow, watch what they were saying to each other and who they are.
Not happy at all.
I bet they're not having living there.
They were like we had madam out there.
We had Girardi out there.
There's good good managers out there.
Ron Washington is like a He's gonna get something done.
Doesn't make surprises and get Gary Cole watch.
No, Anaheim can't not get Garrett Cole.
And I'm getting were you probably think, honestly, they need both.
They do need both, but they're only gonna get one.
They're gonna pay pools more money.
I just can't wait.
I can't wait for, um, for already Miranda like, butt in and ruin it.
I really like the nicknames.
People were throwing Janet day off with Jace Pringles Jace Pringle, Dirk Diggler.
That's as good a T least.
We get to like, do this for you.
One of things I did see on the Tweeters today was the fact that he does look like like a like a beefy fella like Imagine, like Port Lier Know like like husky Boy.
You guys remember Bryce Harper's dad throwing him? Oh, he's James, He's Jack.
But imagine I'm like with half the roids.
Yeah, he's Jack's Just now.
Peter mk Tingle isn't gonna be ableto like I mean, I don't want I don't want Doc Roberts to go throw down with Peter Mattingly.
Here's the thing about him, too, though is he is a Spanish speaker, which means he's good for the team in that sense, because they're getting a lot of international prospects that are coming up through the organization.
They have a lot of Spanish speakers on the team right now.
Yes, Wil Myers, we're talking about you.
Uh, so I mean, that makes sense.
He's young and speak Spanish.
He's gonna gel really well with a lot of these younger dudes coming up t's et cetera.
So I get it on that end.
But on top of that? What did I say? What lf a Murray what I say to you? She said there was He said, She said, Broke out there.
I don't know what I said.
It must have been offended.
A lot of things offensive something.
We're here to be saying things.
So I mean, when it I know what I said.
I said that the, um, Angels were getting re you.
She wants to protect Rick.
Were used, like 33 years old.
He's gonna be 33 3 33 Yeah, we're not afford him and we're not going and he won't be years.
Is he looking for three of five years? 35 to 6 year deal? A five year deal with two option years, preferably five year 1 50? That's what he's looking for.
Money, money, Mother one.
It's a good thing he had such a good end to his career. Earth.
Nice career hits his season because now he's gonna get that cheese.
Yeah, we're talking about real.
Never handled a cradle.
Bay Mouse says, Re you an angel redwood look strange apso fruit Lee.
It would, but there's a very good, uh, Korean demographic down in Orange County, and he would fit in well down there, drop the ball bullets and Hecky and represent Littlefoot.
Rick will quit if Ryu goes of the Angel.
What if Rick goes with for you and then you can have his job? I'm not that good.
And then I could have your job.
I don't want your job.
I don't want to do this.
You get to pick the beer.
That's the best job.
Yeah, that's the best I think Rick is.
Ah, he's happy where he is.
He really likes Mr Oil her Siler more than I would say more than prime rib from Joe Davis and primary for Joe Davis.
So I think that itself is worth more than re you being on the team.
To be fair, Richard, I personally didn't bring you up, but he did text me saying he's enjoying the show.
But he said, We Kathy He said he might be wine drunk.
Rick James, What's up, man? So besides, uh, we started off on David Rossi went into tingle Berries.
Um, Paula Duke at this one, this fun because Paulie's ah, used to sort of be a friend of mine So Polly is in the news because he's getting sued by country.
Joe West, The empire politic.
It used to be my favorite Dodger and look at him now.
Getting sued by Joe Joe West.
So what every kid dreams of.
So what? What I saw is on the on the video side over there, they couldn't hear the last video clip our audio clips.
I don't know if we can or should play it.
I think the way we play it is leave actually, yeah, so ready roll, that beautiful being footage You've got to Joe West. Story to tell.
I probably been thrown out of 15 games in my life, and eight or nine of them were Joe.
He used to tell me before every game.
Dude, you're going to stay in this one.
Nice going, Joe.
A lot of people don't realize he's cut a couple country albums, so he would sing back there.
So 06 or seven and we're playing like a really tight game against the Phillies.
Billy Wagner comes in from the bullpen, and I used to go to the mound every time and like what's going on.
He's like, Hey, Joe's behind the plate, set a couple more inches inside.
I was like, Are you kidding me? Joe hates me.
He's like, No, no, no, no, no, no.
He hasn't given us the corner all days.
Like don't worry about it.
He literally throws 10 pitches and strikes out three guys.
Joe brings up all three guys.
Eight out of the nine pitches were at least 3 to 4 inches inside, not even close.
Guys were throwing bats and everything.
Joe walks off the field.
We get back into the clubhouse and I'm like, What just happened just right now? And Wagner, this wings.
I mean, like, What's the secret? He's like, uh, Joe loves antique cars.
So every time he comes in town, I lend him my 57 Chevy so we can drive it around.
So then he opens up two strikes on for me.
I'm like, this guy's been throwing me out the last 10 years of my life, and all I needed to do is rent him a 57 Chevy.
Didn't he throw you out of a game before the game started? Yes, All right.
Now there's only one cowboy Joe, right? I'll tell you what, though.
He's got a very voice when it comes to country music are getting So Is anybody here really surprised that Joe West would be this kind of guy? I mean, granted, he's not other homeboy who's threatening a K 40 sevens, and I don't even want to touch here.
That's the whole don't want to touch him where I don't want to touch him.
I don't want to touch this guy's 47 but are either.
But, uh, Joe s, I will say this about Joe West.
I enjoy Joe s just because of the theatrics that come along with Joe Show.
He's an entertaining guy.
I have no doubt that he could be easily bribed, very easily bribed.
And he, uh so there's a couple players that I know for a fact he just hates.
And there's two of them.
There's only two of them that I know for sure that he hates just based on experience.
He hates Politika, and he hates Mark burly more than anything. Honor.
That man has thrown Mark Burley out of more games than anybody else.
I'm pretty sure there was a There was a year he threw Mark Earley out, like four times.
Yeah, it's just the funniest thing.
I don't know what gets into him, but once you get under his skin, it's over for you.
It's Showtime, Showtime at Joe West House.
And, uh, I believe every every cent of this story, the salad, because a saint.
So I wouldn't I would I use it very loosely, but it does not inaccurately stated.
I used to work out at an l A fitness with Paula Duke.
It was my much thinner days.
And, um, I I understand your guys this just belief in that statement? Yeah.
He's a very open book about this kind of stuff.
I actually helped him get on the rich are trying to help me get on the original podcast train back in the day, but he was still doing horses and all that content context Phrasing.
Yeah, Yeah, but, uh, yeah, he was still at the time.
This was 345 years ago and he was still ****ed about the trade.
Still living that trade.
I'm here all ****ed about that truck still ****ed about.
And kids ask your grandparent's Gary ask Grand parents are looking up for your Wikipedia, but, uh, we lost Guillermo Mota in that tree.
But yeah, no, it's ah, I believe it.
And apparently all's we got to do is just get more 57 Chevrolets and we're good.
All right? I know somebody who has one.
So we could just, like, you know, hook it up.
I feel like the Dodgers should be responsible for that, but just buy him one.
How much the umpires make bigly gums making 1950.
Really? I'm thinking, like, one Google real fast, but I'm pretty sure make a lot.
They stand there gone all year.
Yeah, they're gone all year.
They travel a whole bunch.
They have to stand on their hind legs for hours at a time.
The hind quarters.
Ah, they can earn upwards of $300,000.
The average is around 1 20 Billy Wagoner, Suite 57 Chevrolet up.
I mean, 10 year, I bet.
Get you up to 300.
Yeah, the older dudes, probably You're making, like to So Joe West is making about like he's probably making the most out of everybody because he can't write country.
Yeah, yes, which I'm sure he's making plenty of money to his top 10.
When I put the podcast version of this together like there's so many ending clips for May, I don't know which one to pick.
Sorry, they said.
Christopher says Paul LoDuca was a great player.
He was Russell Martin before Russell Martin.
That's pretty accurate.
About a year and 1/2.
Yeah, yeah, he was our Russell Martin.
And then we found a Russell Martin that was younger and better at baseball.
I was all about ****.
I can't remember his name.
What's his name? What about the FCC? Know the guy.
The guy that the big big guy we got from the Randy Johnson trade.
The honor Navarro de Ana Navarro.
Tomorrow was like borderline not a baseball player.
Anyway, fan topics.
These are things that people on the Internet wanted us to talk about.
And I think a lot of these are pretty fun.
Um, first off, we this is this is this is a hot topic.
Would probably, but we do have to wait more into the off season for this, but we gotta touch on it, at least.
Anyway, uh, chatter is of course, already wildland right now, when it comes to the Dodgers and offseason plans and pursuits and who they might go after, it's all just lip service.
And we're doing our best at the Dodgers nation to find the real things and tell you about you know, whether somebody writing this is completely out of their mind, where this is B s or, you know, But there's some meat of Yeah, they probably took the one quote out of the story and then, like, wrote another quote in another story and another quote So you don't get full context of what the actual story was about.
He's on one to see me.
He is the castle camera.
Been on immediate No cameras.
No, don't Don't switch you.
Could they get our WiFi? No, because we don't use wifi.
Wait there for 12,000 Twitter.
Boy, did you guys did you guys like the Mike Stanton to the Dodgers? That's right. I'm a g Mike.
Oh, I miss Mike Stanton.
You have a picture? He was a terrible baseball player.
Now Jean Carlo Stanton to the Dodgers by I think it was 12 up and we will call of up.
Yeah, Yeah, it's a European based sports network that's trying to come into the United States by paying off Facebook group pages to post their content.
Tell us how you really feel.
I'm not telling a I'm just saying like That's how it works right now because we know a lot of Dr Fan pages.
They're posting this. You sound upset, Dr.
So what you guys are hearing from Gary is don't believe anything you read from 12 up, but if we find it, we're probably going to do a post on something they do just so you could understand.
Hey, these people don't know what they're talking about most of time.
People will hit us up in the comments about that anyway, saying, I don't know if this is an insult, said Brooke is totally an athlete.
His forehead is running the 40 and his hair is high, diving straight from his nose.
I think that's an insult when not 100% you upset bro.
I said somebody out today.
People really hate me today, but I'm training on how many here for Jesse Jo sales.
Stanton can't play a full season.
Yeah, it'll also forget that he is a designated d H.
He's a designated designated hitter.
He has designated th h standing to L.
A Will never happen.
Maybe could or should have happened two years ago and baggers ago.
It would have didn't what He's just playing What like like 10 games over his last two seasons is another dude, and he's He's been hit with a lot of bad look, but also his legs cannot support that meaty body.
Put on that much muscle.
No, I don't think it's safe, you know, just because you hit the ball out of the stadium one time rhinos is Where would Stanton play? Catcher, Man.
I'd have kissed off somebody, guys, Jose says.
Burke and I are the same age, and he looks like my older uncle man.
They enjoy this. Somebody.
Somebody must've been watching me on Twitter last night or something.
I bribed them all.
I bribed them all.
But the endless Stanton think is her bouncing all over the place with Brooks Fan fan base here.
Slamming on me a little bit more weight didn't care.
Did you at like Padre sweeter somebody like Oh somebody, somebody that I would be a good way.
Charles Hammell says.
12 up is garbage garbage. 100%.
And I'm pretty sure it's just a Yankees fan that was desperate to get rid of this Stan because they don't need him and then didn't really, ever need him.
But, yeah, somebody wrote it.
Who's definitely Yankees does make sense.
The pieces of their for them to cover the story And people are You guys know that Garrett Cole still playing baseball, right? People already talking about his contract.
That's next contract.
I've never heard of her.
Yeah, everybody was trying to hold off until someone started it and then imagining everybody.
Listen, I don't I don't want Jericho sources.
Oh, wait, I have it.
Um um, keep going.
It'll no, that's good.
Listen, he's gonna cost a lot of money.
I don't believe in giving a lot of money to pictures.
I really don't like given that much money to Kershaw this late in his career, But we did it, and I understand why they did it, and I'm you know, I get it. So we did it.
I'm not gonna How Can we not go out and get somebody, though? Even though we don't, you don't You don't need.
Okay, So here's the thing.
People, for some reason or under the assumption that Cole is gonna play on a short term high money deal, he's coming off of one of the best seasons of his career.
It doesn't make sense for him to take the risk.
What are you counting? I'm counting a point.
It doesn't make sense for him to take the risk of signing a one year deal with a high annual average and playing like crap and then having to play for another one year deal.
The bounce back again.
It doesn't make any sense.
He's gonna take advantage of it.
He's gonna get, like, a seven year deal with six guaranteed years behind it and at least 32 to 34 year annual average behind it as well, with the possibility of 1/7 year it.
That's a lot of money.
It's gonna end up being a ton of money for that guy, and it's the Dodgers.
Historically, when they signed pictures, too big.
Long term deals does not work out for them Jason Smith.
It was a three year deal.
It was to that was the theory too long and too high for the Yankees.
For the time here, that was only two for the time.
It was a very high average garbage deal.
Horrible, and I think he pitched like half a game.
So I'm very weary of that just because Jason Schmidt he ruined my entire life.
You see, guys know that, But with that mind, looking at all the guys that we have in our system right now, it's hard to imagine them spending that much money on a starting pitcher, right? Maybe on a reliever.
So you're saying we need Kevin Malone back? Not from the on the office, but it's not Ashton Kutcher, but I'm talking about 1999 like 2001.
General manager of the Dodgers Kevin Malone, who's the one who gave Kevin Brown that $105 million contract that blew the world? Oh, are we, uh, that's That's the only way we're says.
Let me know when Cole signings on the 10 year Oh, yummy.
Hit the board, um, point, but I mean I mean What do you think? Do you want coal on your team? Because I want Strasbourg much.
Rather Have you be the straw? No, but I like your point about the reliever. I mean, I love Strasbourg.
That boys often out.
Yeah, he'd be stupid and not making what, 25 years? So he's making 35.
But guess what? Right now, on his current contract out.
He's I don't know, 35 and he's due to make 35 next year.
But he only has two more years on his contract.
Give a computer in front of you.
I don't believe in computers because they're, uh Anyway, I think you're off 10 anyway.
Don't worry, guys.
Just Gale's things up to get 35 for sure.
Now I'm pretty sure I saw it's on the Internet.
Okay, that that you see the way he's going to get money, but he's going to want more years, and this is his last opportunity is gonna be not not as, um how do you say girth e of a contract that C.
Sabathia rest in peace? Because we killed him last week? Unfortunately, he was Brooke's fault. He did it.
That's at Brooke me three Brooke without any guys just saying it because he's got a lot of money left on the table.
But he's gonna He hasn't topped out after 2090 four years. 100 million.
You can still get your game or four years 100 million or seven years to 50.
Think about that. He could get more.
He's going to get more.
Wait, you said seven years to 50.
I mean, it's not something like that, but with Cole, they're talking seven years and 2 15 is what people are.
Ball parking, right? Which means that's about what Strasbourg is gonna get.
And that would be the more coals what, two years younger than straws? And, um, but the biggest thing for him, he's that much younger than thin.
Greinke was when he signed his big deal.
Greinke was 32 he got, what, 206 that work every year.
Stupid Arizona Strasbourg can be a literally no, let's.
Oh, I see you doing that.
You're saying it.
You're seeing it.
Thio speak uneasy of certain cur shots.
It was all right.
It was a little jab.
Listen, Strasbourg to me, is worth more than cool.
I would actually pay more for Strasbourg like actual Cole like you would get in a steam.
A motive of Motor Locomotive Now Cole's valuable CEO Ale is valuable.
C O l e not so much if Washington wins it or when.
What if Washington wins it? Is that the excuse to let Strasbourg and rain don't go? Uh, no, but I think it's really easy to let a guy it is easier to let guys walk when you just won a World Series, because that kind of set to you sets you up for the next couple years.
People want to play for you.
You get more money more fanciful to games.
You don't have to pay the big eyes, big money that want to leave because they're gonna demand more money because they just won a World Series happen.
A lot happened with Angels, especially in 2002.
There's like a lot of guys who wanted to be really paid after they won the world that should not have been baited.
They should've given Scott Spiezio every dollar they had because of the hair.
I miss Scott Spezia.
What's he doing? He explained to someone while we're not going to sign because he's a bad person.
Garbage who shoots off guns.
And he merely discharged his firearm into his garage eight times because he was having an argument with his girlfriend.
We've all been there waiting, have one time.
Who shoots a gun to scare somebody human way.
Don't get into that too much.
He's a bad person, and he's also on the decline, and they don't realize that.
Why do you think he's thrown a slider? All of a sudden? He can't throw 100 to every **** pitch anymore because he's old and he smiles and smiles in this cutter doesn't cut away.
You're being ruthless right now.
Hopefully, none of our Dodger friends like Paula Duker no.
Paul's a good friend said.
Nice things about gets go, get swole with him again.
We can re sign Homer Bailey if we wanted who wolf too soon.
More baseball is on these who went? Never, never, But these topics we printed dove into him.
Damien wanted a ask us on Twitter.
What are realistic off season moves would be Bert O R.
Alberto, asked about realistic upgraded roster for next season.
And our boy the Atom Bomb Ray.
I want to know about any coaching changes roles in anything, just the general roster additions and subtracted subtractions.
In the off season, there's gonna be a lot.
A lot of things are gonna happen.
That's my story.
That's all you got to say about that, because I feel like you could have.
What's the move? That's gonna What is the move I believe in doing is coming? I saw it in his eyes.
He's a good guy coming.
I just think I think he's I'm just very optimistic.
I think I wouldn't could come.
I would like him, too, but I don't think Washington Washington cannot let him go.
They need to do that. He needs to come to L.
Because we don't have 1/3 baseman ready.
Wait, we don't know the whole system.
No, I think they're going to actually explore the possibility of trading Seger.
It's not gonna happen.
Nobody's going to take him on because he's on sort of like a weird decline, but not but too much money, too many annuities, too many injuries.
But he's gonna get a too big of a raise where he still like that weird question mark on their chances are he's gonna come back and be an All Star next season.
But one guy who will not is gonna be our boy.
Justin Turner played so many games is here when they needed him to play fewer games.
So he needs more help and more help will happen at first base.
He will move to first base.
I can't not see that happening.
There will be some sort of import on the infield or as much as I personally hate it, Max months might just take over 1/3 full time, and maybe he'll be better at third with, like, a full off season in spring training to get that.
Maybe we'll listen, even if Brendan isn't moved to third base.
Even if we don't have that coming in, which it would be great.
I would agree, Gary, That's the guy that I would like to see on the team he's gonna get.
Hey is gonna get paid big time, but he's also having the best year of his career.
So he's the guy, though that said he's okay with a shorter term deal he is, he said.
He would take me higher, higher annual average, which I think the Dodgers.
That's right in their wheelhouse of things they're looking for.
They're saying, Hey, we don't want to pay you 150 million over a couple of years.
We want to pay you 40 million over the next two years.
There's something like that.
Whatever it is, it makes sense.
That kind of gets us through to the next stage of players you got, You got Jeter Downs, you got people like Jacob.
Um, I was supposed to be like a beast, right? Because like I said and I've been saying this since the day he came up to the major leagues, Corey Seager is going to be 1/3 baseman at some point in his career because he is not a permanent shortstop.
He's too **** big.
He's not gonna play shortstop the rest of his life.
He's not as mobile and agile as people think he is.
If you just watch him at shortstop, you realize like he doesn't move to will for a shortstop.
So if you feel third base for the next, I don't know, two years, three years, whatever.
Whatever it takes.
You get the shortstop, Sue.
You get the shortstop skates to come up because of guys like a Maya.
Guys who have a mind is like a wizard with the Glover is supposed to be.
Haven't really gotten a chance to see him.
But you get that guy up, move Seeger over the third.
Now you're talking now you got an actual infield.
Gavin looks like anything is as much as much crap as you give Seeger amongst other people.
Give Seeker crap about his playing shortstop.
He is perpetually a valuable shortstop.
Is he has any rates? He doesn't rate above average by any means average.
He does bring value.
Defensive wins above replacement is calculated.
I don't think I don't think even baseball reference knows how it's calculated, but he always is.
Plus, so there is nothing.
But I mean, probably, I just think that he's not built long term for shortstop.
No, he's already breaking down already, and he's only a couple of years and it was big league career and he just makes sense and even scouts him with him coming up. Scouts all along.
He's gonna play third base.
We saw with the way third chairman he was Cal.
Cal Ripken was, Ah, big shortstop and he played there as long as he could.
You get the most out of out of, Ah, Seger it short while you can.
I still personally don't trust Gavin. Locks it short.
No ease the second baseman, guys.
But he played so much better this year in the minor leagues.
But, I mean, I just His arm isn't there, and then arm isn't something that you develop.
That's not something that shows up.
Frickin David Eckstein.
All right, I'm just saying that was before defensive metrics really came into place and we don't actually know how bad he was for good.
I guess there were the ball like, Please, slow down.
You're making me look bad.
If the original out Tuesday without talent yeah, yeah, but I mean, he won a World Series.
What? What is this about? Jason Worth? Chris knows that the way to my heart.
He just wants to get Jason.
He's not doing much.
I think he's just like sitting on beaches somewhere.
No, he showed up, Teoh.
One of the games.
One of a soccer mom.
No, Bob is asking Bob Sacramento.
Yeah, but, uh are we gonna get anyone significant this winter that I need to know? What? The definition of significance.
I am not significant is a J.
What is someone, Someone with a polic? A significant signing last offseason.
Okay, Bye, Dodger Standards. Yes.
Our standards and baseball standards.
No, he was He was a fill. A role.
Then they went with wrong guy.
Maybe they didn't have a spot of a man who think of where this team would be if they went.
Got Brantley instead of Pollock.
That would be delicious.
I'm just saying, but, um, I see a J J.
Wants me to be the new bench coach.
I'm down because Thio answer Rae's question amongst change.
Ah, coaching changes.
I do think Bob Garren will end up somewhere else.
If not, I think he probably maybe should, because him and Dave just Dave needs Ah rah rah manager Somebody needs, like the antithesis to his managerial style.
Somebody who pro granted Bob Garin, um, doesn't have all of the world of friends in the game of baseball, Houston Street looking at you.
But, um, he you just need someone who's gonna be like, Look, Dave, it's a stupid move.
Stop doing stupid moves, you stupid, stupid blonde.
I will be that guy, I promise.
I promised to you.
If you get me that interview, I will win us a sports ball championship.
I'd mostly just like to see you in a baseball uniform every day.
Oh, no. Bad. You know, I was that Chris Christie.
Yeah, Just I mean, I know how to manage, like the moose knuckle and all that.
But still, just like No, thank you.
Just I'm not down.
I'm not down a man.
Jared says, Brooke, you have treat tattoos.
Do you like camping? Yep.
And you? It's part of why I have three tattoos.
Why are we camping right now? What? We're gonna do a live show.
We should do a live show camping with bears already basically gonna show camping with.
That's true. You were there for that.
I was there for way too much of that.
But anyways, we'll get Maur into all of that because that's that's a heavy like question topic.
Whatever and I want to bring in more people.
I'm seeing Tim here, Tim.
I want to talk to you more about about that stuff.
I want to talk more about that offseason planning when you're here.
And by the way, guys, Tim is already undergone, like the ideas that for the off season on our dodgers nation dot com, check it out.
He has two part series with starting pitchers that the team should really should look at.
I was kind of I was surprised at how much I didn't hate Ah, Cole Hamels on their Cole Hamels on one of Tim's lists.
Cole Hamels coming to the Dodgers.
You mean I actually like it is, It really is, if you look it.
I mean, that's like the equivalent of like bringing in Rich Hill like it is like a very similar Richie Heller, Cole Hamels, Cole Hamels.
But Richard gave us so much.
I mean, if we could obviously get him on a really, really cheap deal, then yeah, of course.
But I mean, you look at what Cole Hamels has done over the past couple of years, you know? Great, he's 30.
He's gonna be 36 I think is going to 36.
E pitched pretty well with Chicago last year, though.
I mean, not great, but not terrible.
He's a good number three starter for us, and he's a good guy.
If we, you know, if we're talking about not getting one of those expensive dudes like Strasburger Cole, he's a good guy to fill in the rotation with a lot of young guys.
So you got Kershaw and Hamels is to veterans.
And then you got three young guys and I think that builds a pretty **** good rotation, considering who we have and also give us the opportunity to move some of those good young flame throwing guys in the bullpen.
And then Kershaw will be the guy of pitching in.
Frickin, really. It'll still happen anyways.
You know. Sunrises, sunsets.
Frank Lopez, to move on.
Wanted to know our trade secrets the most efficient way to get in and out of Dodger Stadium.
We're not telling you, Frank.
Even they think you already did.
Wait like a 10 minute work.
Guys together around gather round here, gather round me. Tell you a story.
Let me just Yeah, Everybody's got a story.
Don't drive directly to the exit.
Everybody's going directly exit.
Go away from it and then you'll figure it out back to you in the studio.
The math doesn't really make sense on that. No.
Always see the bottleneck of people trying to go straight for the freaking where you'll meet.
He's driving in circles for a little while.
Yeah, it's about that.
But I got a park in the right place.
If you got a part in a way that you can go straight.
A couple of days ago, I had frickin handicap parking and they forced me down at the bottom of the barrel parking lot.
Like to call somebody.
They might show up.
Yeah, they don't care.
They at some point in time, they force you to go park.
You know what? Just park in the neighborhood, the local neighborhood, and get a bird and just go into the stadium.
Well, that's That's our boy on kids.
Move! It does that.
Uh, Verdugo doesn't do Ready.
Does that too? Smart move.
I mean, it is I feel like they're part of this.
Costa banning the birds inside the stronger now? Yeah, because they're definitely, like, all around the front, right? I see like 10 of them look like they would probably cause they can't make money on it, though, because, you know, you know, corn.
The court is like, What are those things different while he's mastered? I know nothing about the worst.
Sarah on the Internet wanted to know our thoughts on why Dave Roberts should and should not continue to be part of the Dodgers.
Brooke, I'm gonna let you take this one.
I want to know your thoughts here a week and 1/2 later, two weeks later from the incident.
Why he should be why he's the right guy and why he is not the right guy.
Who? I wasn't listening.
Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay.
Well, here's the thing, guys.
Um, way Brown is in the house of James around.
That's an actual genes in the toe burned flesh.
I almost just blocked him on accident about James.
Uh, here's the thing.
We live in a very what's the what's the line? These air confusing times.
That's the line, right? Is it? That's the whole point is right.
It's very confusing time because you just had a guy win a World Series for a team that hasn't won the World Series and over 100 years, not three seasons ago, not three short seasons ago, and suddenly found himself without a job.
He has a job now with the Angels, of course.
But if you're firing a guy like that, you gotta think nobody's job is safe this day.
Like, it doesn't matter how many games you're winning.
It doesn't matter where you're taking your team.
Doesn't matter how bad your team was before that no job is safe and only the best is expected were.
On the other hand, Don Mattingly gets a contract extension.
I don't know what the hell's going on.
I don't know what what's up and what's down anymore.
We got tingle, make Ringo Barry getting hired in San Diego.
I mean, we got juiced out steroids, man getting fired from the Phillies and it's a really weird was ABS coach.
It sets a strange time to be a manager in a coach in baseball and I would definitely not want the job right now because it seems very volatile and, uh, it just doesn't seem like a good place to be.
So with that being said, I have always been on.
I've never understood the fire.
Dave Roberts trained.
I've never understood that at any point because it's been going on since he was hired.
I didn't understand that.
He won a lot of ball games, got us to a lot of places.
Would we have gotten to those places without him? That remains to be seen.
Probably because we gotta get to not in 20 and a good front office, Definitely not 2018.
Good Lord, that seemed to have no business being in the playoffs.
On top of all of that, despite everything I've just said, I thought he lost his job.
100% thought he lost his job after the after the debacle of internationally division series.
Coming out for the next inning after getting that guy out was the single worst managerial decision I have ever witnessed in playoff baseball.
I could do you one better.
I got another one, too.
My one better is.
A dude just gave up a grand slam that put you down by four runs and you keep him and you kept him in to pitch to two more batters, and that guy wasn't even like a lifer.
That was some dude who you signed because he beat you last year.
Can we? Just six outs, 2018 Woods.
That's a CZ bad that we don't have anybody else to rely on.
So with that being said, only another do.
I think he belongs.
I think Dave Roberts is an excellent, excellent coach for players.
I do not think he is an excellent in game manager, which we've talked about several times over the past.
I don't know, 10 years or so.
He's not that guy.
He is a bench coach type.
He is in Enfield coach type.
He is a base coach type.
He is one of those types.
He's not a manager.
I don't think he's meant for that.
I think he might be a front office type at some point in his career.
Maybe after he's done managing, he might move into that kind of role because he understands that a little bit better than current managers do.
With that being said, this is his last season.
If they don't win the World Series and I liken you said that we said that this season that I didn't see.
I didn't feel that Sorry.
I said, I feel at this season where if he if it's if it's a bust this season, but he's done, that's not I mean, if he with the same team, how about if he gets? Ah, I mean, if he gets a Anthony window, doesn't wake you.
If they get even a little bit better, they have.
Why? Why keep him? There's no point.
Yeah, You're just gonna keep getting the same results every year.
Nothing's gonna change.
Their culture is not gonna change.
The atmosphere of the team's not gonna change.
They're not gonna suddenly wake up one day Indiana like Oh, yeah, We have to keep playing through October.
We forgot about that.
It's not gonna happen.
Biggest. Biggest change next year.
Is that the realization that Kenley is not? You're closer.
I can make a big deal, and they're gonna be the closer.
Yeah, but this year is the first time they were like the first time that they said no.
No, really, Every day said it.
It was all lip service.
Did he ever not get the ball with the lead in the ninth Yeah, but that was because they were He was still there a poser this year in 2019.
Oh, yeah, when they are finished up, Yeah, they were like, Yeah, you're close next year because Bill was like, Dude, he's not in ODS.
He didn't come out in the ninth inning.
You didn't come out because they were saving him for the lead they were saving.
He's not a closer role.
They were saving the closer.
How many close games should have? He should have come out when Kershaw came out for the next part of that evening.
100% should have.
Then we talked about that.
I was like, You're going to see him at a weird time.
And it's gonna be like, No, no, no, he should have Man should have as a clothing would have that wasn't the ninth inning.
Know they had a bridge they want.
But they just for that they understand his purpose in his role in its to come in in big situations.
A closer doesn't necessarily mean that you have to finish out the game.
It just means you coming in the biggest situations of the game.
the only smart managing that's smart enough to do that. Too intelligent.
I understand that next year is gonna be very interesting to see Holly managed that that, really I think that handicap Dave Roberts a lot this year was his obligation thinking, Yeah, his obligation to Kershaw it.
How long has it been now for the at least the last three years? But really, for this entire seven year run, it's been Kershaw and Ken Lee got us here.
We're going to ride them into the light or the down to hell.
And it just that's where it was this time.
I mean, that happened with Kenley 345 seasons ago, where he didn't really get into any games and right, and they lost.
I got bounced early, I think was the last time they got bounced early.
But, um, I do like Kyle's point here.
Costs says Dave Roberts equals Jason Garrett.
So football guys in the house up top.
Yeah, I feel that big time.
Um, Scott Scott, this testicle kringle bear again.
So very happy about that.
Like that one, apparently.
Yeah, it's very good.
A F C in the Galaxy are tied at two at the 65 minute Marco Mike, that's a blow.
I mean, that's like, That's, like attitude.
That's a high scoring game there, bro.
I hate a slot on scored a 55 medical.
Why don't I hate soccer and get together? And everybody tell you why I hate soccer ties? No, because they're they're, like, just shock and all.
When they score socket off, people run around taking off their clothes, and it's not.
It's not in the hot way.
That's their vessel. It that's your best.
I don't think it.
I think we got a couple more here to get through quickly, cause Carlos, earlier on the Internet, wanted to know which of the rookies will retain their rookie eligibility in 2020 babies out, doobies out.
And, uh, I'm no, Lux is No.
This is gonna be considered good luck.
I thought duty was Technically, it's going to start the season rookie because of his playing time next season.
Yeah, no, no, I got it all.
I'm gonna fact check you guys on that.
We'll get there because I remember seeing something about It's 100 and 30 at bats or 50 innings pitched or 45 days in the active roster.
And we went through this pretty decently and the actual this is from MLB official inv.
O on determining rookie status.
But I went through that.
Where there is there some ver bage in here that I find suing of her being. Yeah, exactly.
Kris Bryant is suing over that overwhelming Addis and Super to status and all that SD Dodger has helped me out because, well, that's where I was confused in the Will Smith side because there's there's a line in there where they're talking about during the period of 25 player limit, which is not September.
So I was wondering like the will Smith Games not count in September that you made just in general, but I think they probably can't hit.
But definitely the first jurors are Gavin Locks, Edwin Rios, Tony Gonsouland, Dustin May and our boy the Beans to our potato Kyle garlic, not me.
Beans between the Elliott scored is 3 to 2, although I'm pretty sure a f c.
I mean, Elliot, I like I like their logo.
Never speak about this garbage on my short list, guys.
Baseball's essentially over.
So you know what I love most about L.
Is there something the billboard sign across from Staples that is two miles away from their stadium? Yeah, it makes sense.
Yeah, we're like, Oh, good marketing.
You're like all the stadium's right here, right here.
No, not that way.
So are our queen of the show that was think, appointed by Chris.
Uh, Queen Chess.
More wanted to know about food and alcohol.
She wanted to talk about food and alcohol.
One thing I could think about was the party.
So I did have a party this weekend.
I lost the fence recipes.
Justin, just more was in there.
Oh, she was busy.
Yeah, she was busy.
She was on another planet.
She's Ah, she's an alien.
But, um, yeah, we had booths.
These guys showed up. Gary.
Gary brought me a very, very nice bottle of booze that we immediately get. No.
Oh, we're saving it. Okay.
I was saving it for the World Series, so it's never going to forget the name of that of that.
I just know Selina wants me to drink it because she wants to put flowers in the vase thing.
It's really or your ashes.
It's a clean drink.
But, um, yeah, I got some nice ****s and friends were there.
Some things were broken.
Some tacos were had a good time.
There it is, Right.
You can't whistle right now.
It hurts. Hurts.
Rick Krajewski asked us earlier.
You want to know about our Mount Rushmore pot gas, gas, And I hope I hope you're still on with us, rich.
Ah, and I hope you're still very wine drunk.
Uh, I should just call him real quick.
Quick Tell Hey, watch, watch right now.
But, Brooke, I want to lead off with you.
So you've been doing this now with me for close to a year.
Who are your Who are your Mount Rushmore podcast? Guests.
Um, I I got to say one of my most surprising is Ah, Mark Langil.
That was the most fun I've probably had on a product that was a blast.
I coulda listened.
I do talk for hours, and I did because I didn't say anything, but well, I saw him at the stadium last week, and I felt we gotta I actually no, I was just getting this off season, so Okay.
Like, he's probably, you know, cleaning, getting the bread right there loves that banana bread or whatever it is.
Like the little market that's out here.
So there's four on Mount, is it for him? There's four.
Yeah, Yeah, I know my homework.
I have to say all mine.
That's uh okay. Yeah.
Okay, so we got land you'll get.
I have to put Rick on there.
I mean, we can't not put Rick on there.
Rick doesn't want to be clear.
He'd rather be behind the mountain where nobody's looking, but I'm putting eyes.
You're an influencer way.
Believe in the secret cave.
Like a thief in the nose.
So that's why the mountain he's definitely up there for me.
Um, I got to say, Jessica baby is definitely on my Mount Rush.
Podcast says she was so much fun.
And she, uh I mean, that's cool.
I like Madeleine.
A testicle rotted out.
Jessica was like, Hey, we're gonna make this podcast a lot of fun.
I don't even know if that was her intent or she's just a genuinely fun person.
She's just a genuinely fun person.
So she said them East Coast people.
Do you? I don't know.
Something was never heard of her.
Ever heard of the East Coast? Have you been to Miami? And then, uh, you know, just for consistency sake, I'm not gonna put a player on the Mount Rush.
Is that Is that is that surprising? You know, I think that's fair.
Fair, fair. Fair. Yeah.
Yeah. All right. Okay.
The Franks franks were good, but that's two people.
Yeah, but no one.
Yeah, they're gonna have, like, a sprouting body of heads.
Nixon will give him one chair.
I stopped paying attention.
Now you need me to.
Somebody asked me.
Somebody asked. We see message on Twitter.
I don't know. We saw it.
From who? Brute bruschetta. Bruschetta.
We don't with a lot of numbers.
Four to L. A F. C.
Anyway, now that's a good Mount Rushmore.
I mean, my a lot of engine, I think, uh, I pretty much have the same top three there.
Mark was the biggest surprise.
Like you don't You don't hear.
His store of your hours deter.
Yeah, after hours.
Deter is a good time.
Yeah, but ah, no, I'm pretty much I'm probably gonna mirror Brooks.
But But I'm not I had I had a lot of fun with.
Well, I mean, even so, like Tom Co, I had a lot of fun with Tom Co, but we're talking before and after was good.
B s ing with Tom Co was good.
It was very, very good.
Russ was a hard, hard thing.

That's knowledge is ridiculous.
Just like the combined the babies that we're going to find the Franks and combining the baby's all right because, you know, the baby Bunches fun game that we played was really fun.
And if I had to take, I'm gonna deter because just the after our deter.
The way you just playing.
We're just having fun with everything at the end.
It was really cool.
So this is my top four. Sorry.
