00:08:22
So we got a new sponsor to hit a thea at the turn here after the ninth hole.
00:08:29
Alright, Gary, this is I guess our time in anybody who was happen to be watching the Dodger Zoom party.
00:08:34
The most recent one Episode four A new hope Ah, if you guys happen to watching it dig into them comments.
00:08:40
We want to hear your takes.
00:08:41
We want to get all of the, um well, say Cody Bellenger.
00:08:45
Love was a little bit of Cody love because he was having a hard time with it with existing as per usual.
00:08:52
But Gary wasn't there.
00:08:54
Uh, your yeah, he was.
00:08:58
Brooke, you want to start out? Yeah.
00:09:00
I mean, I could give you a couple quick highlights of a real quick number one.
00:09:04
They all hate Austin Barnes.
00:09:06
Number two.
00:09:07
Jo Koy does not care about language use in a touch of soup.
00:09:12
Call to number 2 80 to be a lot of Rizzo does.
00:09:16
Oh, yeah, that's so that was the follow up.
00:09:18
A lot of Rizzo definitely cares.
00:09:20
Ah, and number four Cody is is absolutely the least intelligent person I've ever heard of in my life.
00:09:26
And the whole team knows it, and it's kind of great.
00:09:28
Kind of really enjoy it.
00:09:30
Yeah.
00:09:31
Yeah, it was.
00:09:32
It was pretty good.
00:09:33
We got wrote Shane.
00:09:34
How does Cody charges for home before a work conference call? Because he's not the kind of he's not that kind of guy to plan ahead.
00:09:40
I don't think I don't think he thinks too much about that.
00:09:42
But Jim over on Facebook, says, Everyone dump it on Barnes.
00:09:45
He was awesome.
00:09:46
And it was I appreciate that I'm down for Ethier.
00:09:49
I think called him an angry little man Genesis.
00:09:53
That's very I love.
00:09:55
Ah, I love Andre.
00:09:56
Bullying him into telling his ah riel story about why he became a catcher are why I asked you. He was forced.
00:10:03
Be a catcher, Of course, both of them.
00:10:04
I asked you alums not not at the same time Dodgers Dodger Rebel asked.
00:10:09
What's in Austin Parnes? Ah, it's up of angry fish.
00:10:15
He's an angry boy without friends.
00:10:18
Tim echoes Jim's sentiments.
00:10:20
Is Barnes getting bagged on? Was was awesome and David Rogers is right.
00:10:25
They got beef Mr Roger's son has beef with, uh, with Austin Barnes.
00:10:29
But Leslie says, Who doesn't hate Austin Barnes? Woody? L may I think Alex Wood is a fake.
00:10:35
I mean friends, but it's like it's like bro ribbing, I guess.
00:10:39
You know, they're all like frat brothers in a way, and ah, man, like I think my second week in a row, my biggest take away from it, why I had another one I put on the website are on Twitter.
00:10:52
I forgot what it was, but Ah, my biggest take away is, um, on these guys desperately want Andre Ethier back in the locker room.
00:11:00
Oh, yeah, Sometimes I forget, like how important he was to the team as a whole, even when he wasn't playing like he absolutely is.
00:11:07
Like a veteran leadership that they just love and appreciate.
00:11:10
Like, even you could see, like Kershaw get giddy about Ethier.
00:11:13
I gotta Andres here, Andre.
00:11:15
Yeah, And it was like, That's weird to see, Kershaw.
00:11:17
I get excited to see somebody, but, um I mean, it's cool.
00:11:21
Like Andre. Definitely.
00:11:23
Trade definitely has some swings left at him.
00:11:25
Like, let's, you know, he definitely has some swings in him.
00:11:28
I'm surprised he just stopped, but he didn't pursue anything young.
00:11:33
He got killed by a lot of things.
00:11:35
Uh, but unfortunate timing was the biggest thing that killed him.
00:11:38
I mean, that that freakin shin fracture that he had, like, derailed his entire career because it just wouldn't stop hurting him.
00:11:47
Yeah, he had the shin thing that didn't go away, and then he was coming up at the end of his contract couldn't hit live lefties at any point in his career, and he didn't have negligee is GM anymore.
00:11:56
So it wasn't get a gig anywhere, so he wasn't gonna get a three year deal.
00:11:59
So rest in peace.
00:12:00
Dre Day.
00:12:02
So he's retiring about Arizona.
00:12:05
Katie would give a kidney to get Dre back in the Dodgers uniform.
00:12:07
That might be too much.
00:12:08
I don't know what the going on.
00:12:09
I don't think he needs a UK.
00:12:11
Yeah, he probably has a visa Shin, if you have one.
00:12:14
I mean kidneys, I think, are like 5000 on the black market.
00:12:17
Right now.
00:12:19
I feel like this that I much frightened why you know that he's thought about selling.
00:12:24
I have, like, three kidney stones in my kidney right now, so let's get rid of this one.
00:12:28
Tim brings up a point that I had in the back of my head taxi squad for Ethier. It's Dodgers.
00:12:33
They're not gonna need all 30 40.
00:12:34
What? However, many people were supposed to be on the active roster, the or the taxes going all that like they kids, it's trip with Ross Stripling.
00:12:41
Hopefully, that boy sleeps again one day but he had mentioned the question was, it was It was with off air General.
00:12:48
It was who was like the best dressed Dodger. Whatever.
00:12:53
And they said Russell Martin he said, Russell Martin He said, Well, he's not on the roster right now And I was like, Oh, do they have a verbal agreement with our mark to come back? Russell, Nathan Coltrane, Jensen, Martin To come back to my Los Angeles Dodgers so I can creep him out at the next meeting.
00:13:12
If you're looking at What? Where's my dad? That I have? Ah, yeah.
00:13:24
That's what happened today, Brooke.
00:13:25
That's what happens when he talks about Russell.
00:13:28
That's what happened in real life.
00:13:32
Yeah, he gets very little ******* and doesn't know what to say.
00:13:35
It doesn't know how toe I got.
00:13:38
I got liquid courage right here, boys.
00:13:42
Sponsor you gotta face for the sponsor.
00:13:43
And Tim, by the way, he penned a fine story for our Dodgers nation dot com about, you know, please, Dodgers, we love God.
00:13:52
Bring back Russell Martin, and you know, it makes makes all the sense for them to bring it back.
00:13:57
It doesn't mean if you're looking at the number of games played the roster expansion, it makes sense to have 1/3 catcher.
00:14:03
There is no third catcher in the organization right now that can fill that gap.
00:14:07
I mean, unless you're talking to Rocky Gale, which is, honestly, a very boring way to fill that gap ever.
00:14:13
Keeper. It's not ready.
00:14:16
Gail, Rocky get his family.
00:14:19
Doesn't even call him home for Christmas.
00:14:20
Okay, Rocky giggles.
00:14:23
Sorry, probably nice.
00:14:27
I don't know what it's like in Guinea. David.
00:14:29
Freeze.
00:14:30
Megan says.
00:14:31
We all need Martin back in our lives.
00:14:32
Jim says Russ for the pen.
00:14:34
Yes, yes, yeah, there's your closer.
00:14:38
Well, let's say by August.
00:14:39
But by August is only gonna be like a month into the season.
00:14:43
Um, I'll start closer. Russell Martin.
00:14:46
That's what's up right there at, Perez said.
00:14:48
I could be the third catcher and and I have been known to be a catcher as points in my life.
00:14:53
I don't know about catching Grad a role I don't think I could do.
00:14:56
That just shatters my thumb.
00:15:00
There was another one I liked.
00:15:01
I liked them asking Barnes e.
00:15:03
You know, how does he catch 100 mile an hour fastball just like I don't know, uh, happens.
00:15:08
It's looks like safety.
00:15:11
Anyway, I don't know.
00:15:12
I don't really know how you describe how you catch 100 miles per hour fastball.
00:15:16
Like, I would just say magic.
00:15:19
Well, I'm just that good.
00:15:20
All right.
00:15:21
Oh, I love that.
00:15:22
Ah, Who the hell was it that said it? It was Andre.
00:15:25
Andre said, Ah, it's God give you he He dropped a, uh, domingo yellow in there, so we'll have Ah, I think hopefully we're gonna have that full Dodger zoom party on our YouTube channel.
00:15:39
Probably tomorrow, which is today for you listening on the podcast side a Wednesday, So check it out youtube dot com slash judges nation TV, and, uh, it should be a good time.
00:15:48
That was for everybody out there in the audience.
00:15:50
I apologize, uh, for my actions, so I don't Guys, we got to talk about the state of the ba*****t state of the baseball.
00:16:00
We gotta talk about riel things right now, because today the governator, but not the Governator.
00:16:06
That how many like he's how many past cover native 2nd 1 passed.
00:16:12
You haven't Gavin, not Lux newsome, which is official name Newsome came out today and did his weekly press conference thing.
00:16:19
And, ah, he pretty much gave L.
00:16:21
A hope for the baseball, where he said, I probably should have had his full quote open already, but in short or in full, because I have it here now.
00:16:30
Sports events could return in that first week or so of June without Spectators, and with modifications and very specific ripped prescriptive conditions.
00:16:40
They have to be met first.
00:16:41
We can also begin to move forward on a number of different sectors, and economy will open up again blah, blah, blah.
00:16:47
Most importantly or third.
00:16:48
Most important, he also said, like, for example, getting a haircut might open up again, which I know.
00:16:54
Brooke, you have to be thrilled at that idea.
00:16:55
But you have newsome given people good news for once.
00:17:01
What is your What was your immediate take away after seeing that broke me? Three? Uh, I remember the There was like the whole question about whether or not baseball would be able to come back in California at all after the fact that MLB was giving their proposal to the players union and shooting for July 4 worth all that nonsense.
00:17:22
Ah, we talked about it.
00:17:23
We're like, Well, California basically said that the stay at home order is gonna go through July.
00:17:28
So how does that work with the Dodgers? And so after that, there was a cold that came out that said that the Dodgers had worked it out with with with Newsome and that there's a chance that they get a pass on it and that they be able to play regardless, as long as there is no fan.
00:17:43
So when I saw this official report, like come directly from him, that said Bay where you can have sports in California I mean, if you just think about like, two or three weeks ago, he had said something that, like, almost completely shut down the thought about exports in California at all.
00:17:59
Where is, like, I don't see NFL having like football, and it was like, Oh, so we're not having sports in California And now all of a sudden we are, and that speaks to a lot of the conditions of the health standards across the state and across the country, and I don't know any of those numbers because I'm not that guy, but it sounds like to me things, they're getting a little bit better.
00:18:19
And if he's allowing this to happen, that means things are starting to flatten out, get better.
00:18:23
So it's, if anything, encouraging.
00:18:26
I think you and I both know know the financial standpoint of baseball and the players organization in the uphill battle that that faces still.
00:18:34
But I mean, this is just one of those boxes to check off to get to the next step.
00:18:38
And it's a big one.
00:18:40
It is. It is a big one.
00:18:41
Yeah, what? We'll get more into the money side of it cause that's ultimately going to be the biggest hang up for baseball returning.
00:18:48
Besides health besides state laws and all these other things, it's gonna come down to the money, and that's unfortunate.
00:18:54
But, um, you know, with that Well, I guess let's get into those next hold up again.
00:18:58
We have the road to baseball essentially paved in California.
00:19:05
What of those next set of holdups? It's the health stuff, So I called this particular section here health in the time of Rhona early last week.
00:19:15
We had mentioned last week I believe it was.
00:19:18
We found out more about it later on after we recorded the show.
00:19:21
But, ah, MLB owners and players came to an agreement about one huge part about playing in 2020 and that was staying healthy through a pandemics and healthy through the co bed, the cove in and Gary, you have a ah, you have a graphic throw up there.
00:19:36
You know there's a bunch of different restrictions for players and for on field personnel.
00:19:41
So I mean, even the dumbest you know, little things, like exchanging the lineup at home plate.
00:19:49
That's that's one of, um ah, we see him here on the screen.
00:19:52
You know there's going to be new ball that's put in play any time.
00:19:55
It's touched by anybody besides the pitcher and the catcher.
00:19:58
Ah, fielders are encouraged.
00:20:00
Step away from the base runners and balls it out of play.
00:20:02
The big one and I.
00:20:04
I enjoyed this in the zoom call, you know, talking about the fact that players can't used chewing tobacco, they can't spit.
00:20:12
There's no sunflower seeds where I draw the line at sunflower seeds, but the spitting and the touching and you know, the licking and the hugging and squeezing and loving every day and all that kind of stuff that's gonna be, I think, the biggest problem.
00:20:24
Understandably.
00:20:25
People gotta wash their hands between innings, half innings, you know, whatever they can get to the dugout.
00:20:30
Ah, handling any of their equipment.
00:20:32
A If you know what I mean on showering will apparently be discourage at team facilities.
00:20:40
But ah, uh, along with that, or in addition to that, you know, they say there's gonna be testing multiple times a week, Gary, and go and close that one now doesn't be testing multiple times a week for players.
00:20:53
Ah, yes, there.
00:20:54
What, the using a facility in Utah or something like that? Yeah, it's ah, it's one of the facilities that Major League Baseball helps convert to a testing facility.
00:21:03
When they agreed to that massive study, you know where they were, like, everybody's gonna take part and sample letting things like, Yeah, yeah, yeah.
00:21:11
With with that too.
00:21:12
Didn't isn't part of it, because obviously there's the public perception of how come all of these big leaguers welcome.
00:21:18
Athletes could get a test, But I can't because for the greater part, it seems like if you want to test you can kind of get a test that I'm I'm sure it's not every single time.
00:21:28
Yeah, last week.
00:21:29
So if you want.
00:21:30
Yeah, we don't know if that's everywhere across the country yet, but we know in California, that's what we care about Governor of California.
00:21:39
Yeah, he said Governator to drinking.
00:21:41
That better now? Yeah.
00:21:44
So I know the public perception for a major league baseball that they were worried about, and understandably so was that people were gonna look at it and say, Like, why are they given any sort of priority? I mean, baseball put the money towards it.
00:21:56
I don't know if you put the money where it happen towards their own tests and they said they'll also, you know, test other people out of it.
00:22:04
So there felt that your government sucks.
00:22:07
You know what? You know, Uh uh, yeah, I would say failing government cheers for a fine point give you covering every business, every company.
00:22:17
Right now, they know that it's part of their job now to provide a safe environment for the employees.
00:22:23
Just like, you know, if any company that you're working out, you know, you any company that has proper health insurance.
00:22:29
They're required to tell you have a ergonomics expert come by your desk and help you set up everything so that they're not liable for putting you in a bad spot.
00:22:38
So, Harry, bury that person has not showed up to my house.
00:22:43
I wouldn't file a grievance with you, you know, which was, uh I mean, you hear, like Twitter.
00:22:54
They actually made it permanent Now that all their in place is gonna work remote, you know? So a lot of these companies know that the costs are gonna be significant to help protect protect their employees and protecting employees means testing, knowing which employees are gonna be sick, whatever it is, you know, their insurance companies are going to dictate it.
00:23:13
The insurance companies are going to dictate it, because after all this is done, we're gonna figure out how much does it cost to treat Corona virus? And then from there, that's how much everybody's premiums are gonna go up.
00:23:27
Certainly is a lot to consider in terms of the medical side of things across the country goes, that's gonna go on for quite a while.
00:23:34
Um, but well, in guards of Major League baseball.
00:23:37
Clint I wanted toe.
00:23:38
I kind of just wanted to ask you about these rules real quick before we moved on.
00:23:42
I mean, even these like simple things, like from a pitcher's perspective.
00:23:46
Like, you know, this is, well, a zai do.
00:23:47
If you have to sanitize your hands between innings, that's not good for your grip on the baseball.
00:23:54
And so, aside from that, there's also the fact that who's revving up the ball with clay before games? Or are you still rubbing up those balls? I did see stuff on that.
00:24:04
Ah, I think I think barstool or somebody did a study about barstool doing a study so you could really take that one to the bank. Dark times.
00:24:14
We're looking at bar stool and Trevor Bauer for ah, entertainment online, but the ah, the study found, and I you know, I wouldn't quote me on it exactly.
00:24:25
But the study found that you know, hand sanitizer or whatever didn't affect the player's grip.
00:24:31
Of course, you know you have.
00:24:34
I mean, every half inning.
00:24:36
I do have an example from that, my friend was is a baker, and then he has his own shopping downtown, a capital.
00:24:42
So he used hand sanitizers multiple times a day before all this just to keep his hands clean.
00:24:47
And if you ever felt his hands afterwards, the hand sanitizers full alcohol dehydrates your hands.
00:24:54
Yeah, tries it out if you feel it out.
00:24:56
His hands feel like leather.
00:24:57
They actually, they would give him super grip on the baseball.
00:25:01
So I'm just saying, like me, but that's after, like, years of using it.
00:25:05
But well, I mean, yeah, it really depends on you Don't want like like you want nice, firm, supple leather like in a new car not warning broken, gunned down 10 year old Acura TL leather that that was his head, that's all trapped like sandpaper at a certain when you shake his hands.
00:25:21
It's just you're like, Oh, at least are clean, you know? But it's just sandpaper hands.
00:25:25
So that's the downside of hand sanitizer.
00:25:28
They're gonna have toe wash your hands and, you know, with so social ever you know, sanitizer, though, like you gotta figure a lot of these pictures.
00:25:37
You know, the unwritten rule of going to the rosin.
00:25:39
Whatever.
00:25:40
Having bits and pieces of things to ah help sticky up their hands a little bit.
00:25:45
I can't imagine rosin working all that well with ah, or are pine tar working all that well with hand sanitizer? It definitely changes.
00:25:54
Points are it definitely changes things up.
00:25:56
Uh, it's gonna be a weird game.
00:25:58
And I'm sure they're gonna have toe dictate what kind of hand sanitizer you're allowed to use and what certain percentage alcohol it's allowed to have any versus I don't know, moisturizer or lotion or whatever it's gonna be.
00:26:10
There's gonna be a lot of things that go into this that we haven't thought about.
00:26:12
But I thought one really interesting tidbit from that little description that came from the athletic.
00:26:19
And that was the report that was released was that fighting is banned, which fighting was already banned.
00:26:29
It was ever like.
00:26:30
Was it ever sanctioned whose it is? They weren't ever like you could fight, but you probably shouldn't.
00:26:36
But it was if they had to make sure like, Hey, guys, you really can't fight now like you really can't.
00:26:40
And I I thought that was like that.
00:26:43
Maybe left when I saw that the little know it was like, Yeah.
00:26:46
I mean, you're not supposed to fight.
00:26:47
I got that pulling, Pulling a barstool to for here.
00:26:51
The starting nine.
00:26:52
Guy.
00:26:53
That guy Jared, Whoever Kravis Never angry little boy.
00:26:57
He was talking Teoh the Bruce Hoffer Phillies outfielder Bruce offer for former Future Dodger and Harper.
00:27:04
Uh, I'm aware.
00:27:05
I said Bruce Hoffer.
00:27:06
That's what I do around here.
00:27:07
Guys, if you're new to the show A cheers.
00:27:09
I'm gonna tune in.
00:27:11
Really Gotta listen to the whole show.
00:27:13
But he was asking about that.
00:27:14
Funny enough.
00:27:15
Kravis asked Harper about, you know, the ah helmet incident with Hunter Strickland.
00:27:20
All that and and the conversation went to white Not just have it like hockey where it's like you guys want to fight f it.
00:27:27
Just go for it.
00:27:28
You guys get this long? Somebody hits the ground.
00:27:30
That's what I mean.
00:27:31
These dudes want to fight.
00:27:32
There's no reason for all these people for the dugouts to empty out.
00:27:36
And you can't do that these days.
00:27:38
You know, Plead, is there a good reason? Please isn't.
00:27:40
Ah Doesn't have a job right now because he knows you can't fight the pirates next seats the entire piracy.
00:27:45
Entire pirates, along with Amir Garrett at least some inside.
00:27:49
Um, yeah.
00:27:51
So I'm on board with that.
00:27:53
Just let two people fight and then then quarantine him.
00:27:56
Boom there.
00:27:57
I mean, there's officially why NHL survived this long.
00:28:00
People, People don't really watch hockey for hockey as much anymore as they used to invites.
00:28:06
You were just talking about before we went live.
00:28:08
How you you enjoy the fight this weekend? Because I want It was the only sports you had, But also, it's entertaining stuff.
00:28:15
Yeah.
00:28:16
I mean, UFC is definitely gone downhill in the last five years.
00:28:18
Uh, used to be really great.
00:28:21
Now there not too great about still pays the entertaining.
00:28:26
If you guys watched, I'd like to hear your opinions below because there was obviously no fans.
00:28:30
And that's something that we're gonna have to get used to with baseball.
00:28:33
And I feel like it's may be different with baseball, but in a good way, like it's really different in UFC when there's people supposed to be ringside, like all around you and and, you know, they're announcing you and the guys are like pumping their fists, and there's no fans there, but I'd like to know if you guys watch it.
00:28:53
Let me know what you thought of it below, cause we got to get used to know fans, guys, a couple comments here.
00:28:57
Katie says, I'm gonna miss players yelling an umpire's faces, though I think JT actually did bring that up.
00:29:03
Or he addressed that with, uh, probably Jonah, I don't know, like we keep talking about this.
00:29:07
I don't know if we've mentioned it on air or not, but it's so it's so weird.
00:29:11
It's so funny how these players are just kind of going in a rotation like who's in to go interview with what podcast or what show or be on the zoom call this week.
00:29:21
And then you see him on also on SportsNet and you see him here and then you just get this market saturation.
00:29:25
You can't go get him and whatever.
00:29:27
That's why we haven't bothered to get frickin players on here of late.
00:29:30
But, um, I got was going with that if we all have a different take on it.
00:29:36
Oh, yeah, we got We got some things in the works, guys.
00:29:38
Keep it tuned here, but attitude Keep it tuned.
00:29:41
That's what people say, right? Press alike.
00:29:43
Um matched that heart button fam squad.
00:29:47
I was going somewhere.
00:29:48
Oh, yeah, Like JT talking about it.
00:29:49
You know how he's fully aware that he's been guilty of, you know, the yelling and umpires and all that.
00:29:56
It was more along the lines of the conversation about, you know, the robot umpires and all that.
00:30:02
If I'm not mistaken, I think you Ah, he wrote up something about that, Brooke.
00:30:06
But, um, you know, still, JT is aware of the rules and and all that kind of stuff.
00:30:11
Whatever.
00:30:12
One question I do have is, you know, for the players like JT who were, like, gloves and all the patty.
00:30:18
And here, mainly it's the gloves.
00:30:20
Right? Um, you know, that's gonna That's gonna get infected.
00:30:25
Like, Are they going to wear new gloves every time they go out on the field? That means they have to have how many sets, right that a Serie Hey, Siri, How much? How much cove it can a beard hold? Yeah, JC's gonna shake homeboys And how Whoa, It's our word of the day, boys.
00:30:43
So, buddy, people I mean there there are definitely a lot of things to consider that Ah, along with those rules.
00:30:52
Those who test positive will be quarantined until they test negative twice, which certainly changes up the pace of the season.
00:30:59
Like I mean, imagine if I mean, I can't think of a team, right? I mean, who is like a team that's on the fringe, but okay, the Angels.
00:31:06
How about the Angels? They're on the fringe.
00:31:07
But if they don't have their star player, they're not on the fringes.
00:31:10
If the Angels Mike Trout test positive in the middle of a playoff run, he's out for two weeks.
00:31:16
I mean, at least he's gonna be gone for at least two weeks before he tested negative twice and no quickly got out of hand with her thesis.
00:31:23
14 games? Yeah, yeah.
00:31:26
And so when you think about that, that definitely changed the course of the season because you got to be really careful with some of your more important guys.
00:31:33
I mean, the whole team.
00:31:34
But really, those more important guys like you, you talk about like Shohei Otani or Mark Mike Trout getting getting infected like that ruins your whole season.
00:31:42
You might as well just throw in the towel at that point.
00:31:45
So I mean, there's a lot of things that are going to go into the season whenever it actually happens, and it sounds like it's actually happening.
00:31:52
Um, and as another part of that, those who have been in contact with positive tests will also have to be instantly tested as well.
00:32:00
So the good news is people are being tested.
00:32:02
It's part of the process.
00:32:04
You're going to see a lot of these players really upset, I think because the testing is not fun.
00:32:09
From what I understand.
00:32:10
I had a friend take it the other day and he was like, Yeah, that was the worst thing that's ever happened to me And then he's like and I've had a prostate exam.
00:32:16
So who I was like, Oh boy, rest F From the chat, I want to take a sidebar here.
00:32:26
Ah, to to call out our our new friend here, Dark fantasy says you need to lose weight bad.
00:32:31
So, Brooke, you for some time trying were in quarantine but be hitting hard.
00:32:38
I love making it this many episodes, and I feel like that's the first high quality fat jokes.
00:32:44
So, uh, quality quality comment from dark fantasy.
00:32:48
We're sorry.
00:32:49
Your brother never loved you.
00:32:51
Okay.
00:32:53
Uh, anyways, anyways, anything else you guys want to bring in two of us find maybe a couple more comments? Ah, they want us to stop saying the m word.
00:33:01
So we will do that.
00:33:02
We will honor Leslie's requests and not keep going there.
00:33:06
Extreme. Kane says, Hey.
00:33:08
Ah, high extreme Kane.
00:33:09
I love son raising.
00:33:12
I see what you did there, Prez Want to know to even lift, bro? Hell, yeah, but my ass out of the seat a couple times a day.
00:33:19
Alfredo says the mustache adds £10. Thanks.
00:33:22
Off Right up.
00:33:23
Good looking out, brother.
00:33:24
Appreciate you. Oh, God.
00:33:26
I need to remind myself title this episode that mustache pounds.
00:33:32
Uh, Nina G man called us a finger prick.
00:33:34
No, I heard that contest.
00:33:35
You ve a finger prick.
00:33:36
I haven't seen that 10 I don't I don't.
00:33:38
That's a lot less.
00:33:39
Yet instead of shoving the Q tip to your brain and scraping it or whatever the hell that is a lot of there's a lot of tests.
00:33:46
It's just that the problem is that there, that's all of it.
00:33:49
Yeah, well, the problem is that myself and Clint's are not.
00:33:53
What's that word educated? So all we know is that they shove a Q tip up your nose, and that's one of the testing that great, you know, just like right up there, right into your going.
00:34:05
Yeah.
00:34:06
So I'm gonna be home now for the rest of my life. I don't want that.
00:34:09
Ah, Hatfield says he enjoys prostate exams.
00:34:14
Gonna take that completely out of context.
00:34:18
We're very proud of You broke me three for that one.
00:34:21
So again, let's Ah, let's kind of move on to the other part of of the biggest hold up for baseball.
00:34:30
It's not going to be the health money enough.
00:34:31
It's not the pandemic.
00:34:33
That's the holdup for baseball in 2020.
00:34:36
No, it's the teams, It's the owners and it's the players.
00:34:40
And it comes down to money.
00:34:41
Money, money.
00:34:42
Who do you trust? So this is where you queue a pink Floyd.
00:34:46
But, uh, no, I always go with Ah, Joker.
00:34:51
Batman. 89.
00:34:53
Jack Nicholson.
00:34:55
Great scene. Great scene.
00:34:56
But to, ah to give the full circle here to paint the full picture.
00:35:01
I wrote it out so it's easier for me to kind of give through, you know, in late March is a lot of people know many of you, especially you. That guy right there.
00:35:08
Uh uh.
00:35:09
Not you, the other guy.
00:35:10
MLB, the owners and the players all came to an agreement that paid them through the end of May.
00:35:14
I forgot what the money was, what the number was, but whatever, that was less important.
00:35:18
And it also that promise them like a percentage of the season salary.
00:35:22
But there was fine print in that agreement that everybody signed and that fine print waas.
00:35:28
If fans aren't allowed to get into the stadium, then maybe we got to revisit this contract.
00:35:36
Well, it seems like the players art quite ready to honor that fine print. Understandably.
00:35:44
But the owners and MLB I even thinking this are really trying, Teoh, trying to stand behind what was agreed upon in a way or the other way around there, trying to you guys no time with the other way around.
00:35:58
Players want to say no.
00:36:00
We didn't agree to that.
00:36:02
And the other way around is we want to get more money or we want to balance it out because the way it's looking right now.
00:36:10
How much was it like almost 650 grand per beta per game that so baseball would be losing Baseball said that on average they'd be losing $640,000 for each game played in empty ballparks.
00:36:26
So from the ownership side of things, I'm it's really shocking to me because I think we all kind of thought it was a little bit backwards where the owners would be fighting for more games.
00:36:37
Ah, but when when you're looking at it, their argument is like, Hey, based on the number of losses and things that we have, the financial losses with local TV deals, all these things, the gate revenue that we usually have, the food revenue that we usually get per game, all these things that go into it, everything that goes into it.
00:36:53
They're like we're actually losing money when we're playing games because we also have to pay the players.
00:36:57
So if we have to pay him that prorated salary, we're losing a ton of money because they're saying Hey, rulers in $640,000 a game, you know that's a lot.
00:37:05
You know what's funny to me is when I read that I read, Oh, they made 16 year, $40,000 a game for the last yeah, 1,000,000,000 years.
00:37:12
So, yeah, your money is generally, you know, it's definitely what you're looking at your like.
00:37:18
People are going to read into that a different way.
00:37:19
Guys, I think there's, I say that absolutely two sides to this argument and both of them kind of are wrong in a way, right? Yeah, they made that money, no doubt.
00:37:31
But either way, like the players shouldn't be the one to put themselves at risk financially in this particular situation.
00:37:39
But baseball or teams are lined up to lose.
00:37:44
They lose more money playing games than they would not playing those 82 games that are reportedly on on the docket, which is weird.
00:37:54
I mean, I get it.
00:37:55
What? That's the way it is right now. It's way it's lined up.
00:37:57
They'd lose an extra, you know, chump change, $1,000,000,000.
00:38:00
If they played 82 game back and said, you need to be more specific, you need toe.
00:38:04
Be specific about which timeline you want, what finances you need, what revenue you're looking at and They're like You just told us you lose $640,000 per game, prove us to prove that to us And they're like, Well, you need to be more specific with And they're like, What the hell is wrong with you guys? So for me, this is like looking at the C B, A expiring and at the end of 2023 like this is something that you and I have been trading for years, and all of a sudden it's happening in 2020 in the wrong context.
00:38:29
And then everybody grab that and then made the players look horrible.
00:38:33
I believe, like, you know, the players have a good like smell.
00:38:37
I thought, you know, voiced it pretty well.
00:38:39
He articulated his points pretty well, but the end of the day, it's like I don't want get paid $50,000 to play baseball.
00:38:48
You know, like that's how you say, and there's like, That's old, everybody hurt And then you have doctors, nurses going.
00:38:54
I'm going every day, risking my life for that stuff.
00:38:56
Then that's just mixed up So that owners No, I mean they've been around this too long to not know how to play this media game and they put it out there and they've been ahead of every time.
00:39:06
No player and no member from the players association has been actively trying to get baseball back.
00:39:12
That's their problem.
00:39:13
They don't have somebody there to try and figure things out with them.
00:39:16
So right now only the owners are controlling the the narrative, you know? Yeah, you got that? And then you have Ah, you know, on the other side, I would say the only thing for the players has sort of been like maybe Scott, Boris, you know, inside of ah, inside of John Hammond's pocket or whatever.
00:39:34
It may be like that every time you hear from the players, unless they get asked the same stupid questions over and over again on that every ah, on every medium they go visit.
00:39:44
But ultimately we've hit a point where something has to give.
00:39:48
One side needs a cave, and it really needs to be the owners a little bit more mean players.
00:39:55
The money's gotten just dumb in professional sports.
00:39:59
We I think everybody in the god**** world can agree to that.
00:40:03
Shot out Jo Koy, making bacon agree to that.
00:40:07
But somebody needs to take a little bit of concession here.
00:40:10
And, you know, at some point in time, whatever side takes it, you know, MLB are, say the owners are still gonna hike up the prices everywhere they can to make up for whether or not they stick with the original agreement Now where they find an agreement that works better for for them or the players or whatever the hell it.
00:40:28
Maybe we're all gonna end up paying for the bottom line for tickets, for concessions and all that kind of stuff.
00:40:34
It sucks.
00:40:35
It just really sucks.
00:40:36
But, ah, you're talking about.
00:40:37
So now you're talking about Kershaw? Snell, uh, I would not want, you know, I don't know the guy.
00:40:43
The only thing I know about Blakes knows he's he's nasty, and he's got, ah, American League Cy Young Award under his belt.
00:40:51
But just the perception of that dude is not the guy I want representing my league or the players and any sort of way he just I mean that we we grow up in different areas, different hoods.
00:41:04
I grew up in the hood here on the borderline of wittier and PICO I got, I got Yeah, I got hoes in different area codes.
00:41:10
I got friends at all talk different land on the on A I say dumb crap or all the time, too.
00:41:15
But there's just away.
00:41:16
There's a cadence.
00:41:17
There's a way you carry yourself when you're talking about something as big as that is.
00:41:20
And that was probably like you said Gary.
00:41:23
You know, just in passing, talking **** in a twitch stream.
00:41:26
I not have been the best look for you and your your your peers.
00:41:32
The thing I didn't like about that was that Clayton Kershaw was like, very heavily misquoted when he was talking about Blakes now and that drove me up.
00:41:39
I drove me Oppa, Wallman, and unfortunately I mean, he was misquoted by some people that we kind of partner with on something so I don't wanna get to specific with it, but basically they were like it was like Clayton.
00:41:50
Kershaw agrees with Blake Snell and is like, that's not the case at all. Clean.
00:41:54
Kirsten was like, I understand where he's coming from.
00:41:55
I understand what he means.
00:41:57
There's a better time to do that.
00:41:58
There are representatives who do that for us, There's, you know, I I understand what he means.
00:42:02
But ultimately, like the two sides need to come together and make an agreement.
00:42:06
He didn't say like, Hey, this is on the owners, Which is what Blake Snell said, Hey, this is on the owners.
00:42:11
Clayton Kershaw was like, Hey, I understand what he means.
00:42:14
The two sides need to come together and figure this out, though, and I posed the tweet on Twitter.
00:42:18
Obviously, the other day it said, Who do you trust? You trust the millionaires of the billionaires? And it's a common misconception is that everybody who plays is a millionaire.
00:42:26
They're not all millionaires.
00:42:28
I mean, we we specifically like us three have talked about guys that when we're considering the pay cuts being taken, you don't think about like I don't want to think about the Kershaw's.
00:42:39
I don't want to think about the Harpers.
00:42:41
I don't want to think about the Gerrit Cole's of the world.
00:42:43
I want to think about the mat babies of the world.
00:42:45
I want to think about the Kris Taylor's of the world.
00:42:47
I want to think about these guys who aren't making in comparison.
00:42:50
I mean Taylor, I guess, got a pretty big bump.
00:42:53
But in comparison, aren't making its on the money.
00:42:55
So when you start considering all these cuts, Gary, I think you landed on a figure that, like Matt Baby might be making about.
00:43:02
He might be making about $100,000 this year after all the cuts.
00:43:06
And then he attacks.
00:43:07
Yeah, and they just bought a A lot of you might make more than map 80 this year if this all goes through, like there's so many things to consider.
00:43:16
And when you're looking at the lives of these players, yeah, they make a lot of money.
00:43:21
Yeah, some of them make, like 30 something $1,000,000.
00:43:24
Yeah, that's the kind of money, But on the flip side of that, they have something that you do not.
00:43:30
They can play baseball, you would have professional level, and you want to watch them play that sport.
00:43:36
They have that to offer to you.
00:43:37
You do not have that to offer to them too.
00:43:39
So to say that I have really find it hard to say that players should accept anything less than what they're worth.
00:43:46
Gary, you know as well as I do.
00:43:47
If you do a job very well, you get paid for it.
00:43:50
And you don't accept anything less than what you think.
00:43:52
You should be paid for it and and dark.
00:43:54
So for never do anything for free, right? Yeah, exactly.
00:43:57
That's it for the love of the They're like, yeah, they should do because they love the game.
00:44:02
It's like, Yeah, I'm sure they love the game, but they still have bills to pay. They still have a few.
00:44:06
Should have planned for this.
00:44:07
Onley last so long they're not playing until you're 65.
00:44:10
You're not getting that payday until you're 65.
00:44:12
Your If you're lucky, you play until you're 35.
00:44:16
If you're lucky, most guys aren't that lucky.
00:44:18
So to say that they should just write off this year and forget about it and just take a giant pay cut and just let the owners walk away, smiling and happy And old Nan's That's irresponsible.
00:44:27
I think it's incredibly irresponsible to think, like I agree, they make a ton of money, and in comparison to teachers and people that I think should be paid a lot more e.
00:44:36
I think you know teachers should be paid a lot more out.
00:44:39
Spend all this time with its.
00:44:41
So I'm gonna definitely throw that one out there comparatively.
00:44:45
Obviously a lot bore.
00:44:46
But, I mean, if I'm gonna side with the millionaires or billionaires, I'm gonna side with millionaires.
00:44:52
It's basically Tim.
00:44:53
I mean, that's something that dictates salaries in this capitalist society.
00:44:58
If there's more people willing to take your job for that amount, Yo, sorry.
00:45:03
You know, but baseball you qualify to get paid that amount.
00:45:07
So I get some people, like, definitely teachers, nurses, doctors, teachers and nurses, for sure are some of the most underpaid people in the frickin world for what they do, you know.
00:45:18
And it's just a matter of figuring out, you know, hopefully a society when they figured out how to compensate them.
00:45:22
Maybe tax breaks, maybe free education, maybe all this kind of stuff stuff that governments can do.
00:45:27
But baseball is still.
00:45:29
There's only a finite number of people that could actually do this job because there's only a finite number of people open slots for this job.
00:45:35
So are they going well? I mean, Brooke and I can do it.
00:45:39
We just can't do This lake is this Blake smell can just straight in straight up.
00:45:42
Say, I'm not gonna play for that money.
00:45:44
The owners can say, OK, some one of the miners would.
00:45:48
And then Snell's car, you know, now.
00:45:51
But then there's now the players.
00:45:53
They're gonna back Snell up because you can't do that.
00:45:55
Then then for sure, Yeah, you think you can And you know Tim Rogers in a back to back Tim Rogers comments here in a second.
00:46:01
But I got a sidebar, uh, selfishly and say, I see you want me.
00:46:05
He's talking crap about me talking crap and that's not cool.
00:46:08
He's friend of mine.
00:46:09
Anyways, Tim says the MLB Players Association is leaderless.
00:46:12
Tony Clark and company messed up badly with the last c b a witch, the most points we've ever awarded here on the show.
00:46:19
And then, ah, second tweet, he says.
00:46:21
Future, the game may be at stake where they might not ever play again.
00:46:25
And that's the biggest thing that we're at right now is that if they do something stupid where they can find the way and already said it here, they could find a way to play the game No responsibly.
00:46:38
They could be healthy.
00:46:39
They could test.
00:46:40
That could be smart about it.
00:46:41
They know socially distance.
00:46:43
Ah, 82 games plus playoffs.
00:46:47
And they don't because they can't work together on ah financial number.
00:46:52
Then then what's the point of this like we don't We don't deserve baseball or they don't deserve us.
00:46:58
His fans, I should say, because they're all just greedy pricks.
00:47:04
It would be incredibly irresponsible of both sides to not be able to come to agreement one way or another who takes the main session? I mean, realistically, like when you're looking at it, let's say the season was called off because we couldn't come to an agreement.
00:47:17
It would have.
00:47:18
People would put it on the players.
00:47:20
That's what it would come down to.
00:47:21
They would say You didn't take a pay cut.
00:47:22
You didn't give in to what they needed to make the thing make the league happen.
00:47:26
This is on you and it would ultimately fall on them.
00:47:28
And that's unfortunate.
00:47:30
That's unfortunate because realistically, when you're looking at it, the owners could very easily make this season happen and take a loss and hopefully recoup it over the next five years, they could, and they probably will.
00:47:42
But, I mean, when you're looking at, these guys are really taking hits, and I again I look at those lower level guys who are really not going to be making out really well this year, one way or another, like even without the extra added cut, their probably not making out so well this year.
00:47:56
So it's gonna be, you know, as Tim said, you make you either make less money or you make no money because there's either gonna make less money for buying a season or no money when there's no season.
00:48:06
So there's two sides of it and hope.
00:48:08
I'm really hopeful that they can come to an agreement as soon as this week and they could figure it out and tensions will ease and the ownership will think about the long term.
00:48:17
Tim pointed out.
00:48:18
The C B A ends after 2021.
00:48:20
You gotta be thinking long term here.
00:48:22
You got to be playing a long game because if you're gonna **** them off, if you're gonna **** the players off right before the season before the CB expires, I mean, you're talking about not having a 2020 season, you might not have a 2022 season, 2023 season.
00:48:36
It's gonna get real complicated.
00:48:38
I mean, it was already gonna be complicated heading into 2022 in 2023 because that CB expired at the end of next season.
00:48:45
But it's again.
00:48:47
It's it's really precarious spot.
00:48:48
And there's so many avenues that lead them down.
00:48:52
The wrong path of doing something really stupid that destroys the game, destroys the credibility and destroys everything that they have really worked for over the past 25 years or so since the last strike.
00:49:02
I mean, they went through so many years, I think it was like 88 work stoppages between 70 some odd and 94.
00:49:11
And we've gone this long without a work stoppage except for 9 11 And now Ah, a major global pandemic here.
00:49:21
You can't let money be worse than Cove.
00:49:25
It, uh, that's I guess I don't know. That's quotable.
00:49:28
Quotes. Quotable.
00:49:29
Run it.
00:49:30
I'll wait.
00:49:31
Um, there was one part.
00:49:34
I mean, we're at a point right now.
00:49:36
Where, and we're gonna get Teoh Dodger Stadium stuff in a second.
00:49:39
We want to be happy. We want toe.
00:49:41
We'll end on a happy note for and on a happier now and yeah, as news as.
00:49:46
And if news develops this week, we will come back on.
00:49:49
Live alone will be another podcast this week.
00:49:52
But what's really troubling to me and I feel strongly that that's ah quality word to use here.
00:50:02
Brooke, I know you saw Mark the sheriff's stupid comments, and I know you saw Ah, I want to be human So bad Alex Rodriguez and his dumb comments where you Alex would hit the nail on the head talking about the Sherif's comments, being just so stupid to share the Sherra.
00:50:19
Keep in mind that you'd made a crap ton of money over his career and is no longer playing baseball, so he doesn't have to face this actual situation that he's in.
00:50:26
He said he would rather make pennies on the dollar and give hope to people 100,000%.
00:50:30
Bull****.
00:50:31
I've had a bull**** button on here.
00:50:32
I would click it so many times and so hard you are a dirty phony and apparently it runs in the Yankees family, even though we already knew a Rod's pretty much of phony, but Alex Rodriguez continues to prove.
00:50:45
Like I said, he just doesn't understand how flash humans work.
00:50:48
Ah, he tried to be inspirational by completely avoiding looking at the camera in some awkward way, but he fell flat right on this stupid face.
00:50:57
Um, you know, he's talking about like like, you need this.
00:51:02
The players need this.
00:51:03
Everybody has come together and again.
00:51:04
It's the same sort of thing where ah, you're doing this for for the people.
00:51:09
You're doing this for America, For the community.
00:51:11
Now.
00:51:12
You're trying too hard here, Chief.
00:51:13
You don't care.
00:51:14
Ah, I like Dallas braiding, man.
00:51:16
This is a three for for anybody related to all the barstool.
00:51:19
All the bar still right? Hey, those dudes, you got to see that? Like there's some ladies podcasts and these ladies make, like, 75 grand a year plus 2500 episode.
00:51:29
We got to get renegotiating here anyway.
00:51:32
Dallas rating.
00:51:33
Crushing it.
00:51:34
Dallas brains has taken for me.
00:51:36
Oh, this is I think it's supposed to be him, you know, Air quoting like he's being a rod Here.
00:51:42
Take it from a I have always had the players Union MLB's best interest in mind If it seems like I'm pulling up the ladder behind me, looking down at you, asking you to take one for the team.
00:51:49
Well, that's kind of what it is. Sorry.
00:51:52
And, um, I mean, it was a rod.
00:51:55
Made what? Like over over five.
00:51:58
Like how I'm doing it.
00:51:59
Maybe even know, like, half a $1,000,000,000 throughout the course of his career.
00:52:02
Not to mention the fact that he cheated for a large majority of that career.
00:52:06
And now he's with J.
00:52:07
Lo.
00:52:08
It's like you don't get to talk about that.
00:52:09
You don't get any sand this at all.
00:52:11
If you're still playing.
00:52:12
Sure say sissy thing is his lane.
00:52:16
But stand your lane.
00:52:18
Yeah.
00:52:19
I mean, yeah, absolutely.
00:52:21
I just really wanted toe out that I just really wanted to leave this stuff in because I **** do.
00:52:27
I hate Alex Rodriguez.
00:52:29
Oh, yeah, I think a raw s*** of the universe.
00:52:30
And I think he's the worst baseball player that ever touched the planet.
00:52:33
But, um, beside from that opinion I have about him, I will say completely.
00:52:39
Aside from it, I think it's just a really bad take and I think it's a I really think that if you are not playing baseball that you shouldn't really be ableto have much of a say into it.
00:52:51
Okay, I was listening to the The Pat McAfee Show shots up at Magny.
00:52:55
He's kind of associated with barstool.
00:52:57
Tedious.
00:52:58
And there's another one.
00:52:59
Ah, uh, he was talking about Blake Snell.
00:53:02
And first of all, he's like, First of all, I don't know what the hell of Blake Snell is like.
00:53:06
I important, and someone's like, well, used to be.
00:53:08
And so he's like he's like major league baseball just got the worst dudes representing them like they just have the worst guys like he's like, I understand what Blake Snow saying, Like, I understand that he wants his money and he should get a She's He's like, Man, they got the worst guys that are the loudest ones JD needs to represent the league.
00:53:27
Oh, dude, I mean, if you talk about a guy that you want to represent your team first of all, great representative for the Dodgers, well spoken, knows what to say and when did not say things and I mean it is just probably one of the most well spoken guys that you could ever imagine.
00:53:40
So if you put that dude as the face of major league baseball, you like major league baseball will be in a much better place.
00:53:45
Plus, he's just freakin likable.
00:53:47
I don't know what it's like, very like, and it's got a beard.
00:53:51
It's gonna be a trust.
00:53:52
People with beards, Ricky Bobby Trujillo says.
00:53:55
Which dumb comment? A.
00:53:56
Rod has so many key points for his out.
00:53:59
A Rod Santiago says.
00:54:01
I was starting to be okay with Alex Rodriguez now back then, not liking him.
00:54:05
Yeah, he definitely had, like, evolution after his career, where he became a decent human being, and now they just snap.
00:54:15
Mario, Mario says, I gotta prep my microphone here cause I got to do it in the in the vein of Tommy, Mario says he's taken Lasorda's advice and stay safe.
00:54:25
Stay inside.
00:54:27
I just want to know who went near Lasorda.
00:54:29
That's all I need to know.
00:54:30
Where your mask.
00:54:32
Okay, Tommy, you could just leave me alone.
00:54:34
You guys leave Tommy alone.
00:54:36
He's got a stay at home start for any headphones listeners there.
00:54:40
But it's Tommy, you know, he He really only gets wound up for, like, two things these days, and that's whenever AM 5 70 comes and ask him to do something.
00:54:47
So shout out.
00:54:48
And 5 70 the l A.
00:54:51
Sports something, whatever.
00:54:52
I forget what they're called, but they're nice kids.
00:54:54
Friends of the show, Tina says.
00:54:56
Life's too short to hate anyone.
00:54:58
I agree.
00:54:59
99.
00:55:00
9% of time except for the Astros and Alex Rodriguez.
00:55:03
But moving on, we said we're going to do something ever so slightly happy ever so slightly fun And ah, well, our friend Ah Youtuber John K with a K.
00:55:18
He came out with another one of his drone videos, and I got to say, It's just it's a chef's kiss.
00:55:23
So Brooke and I hear we're gonna watch this video here.
00:55:26
And Gary feel free to toe, uh, go along with us.
00:55:30
But there's Maurer of the renovation view of what's going on another stadium, the plaza, and you know, it just it looks it looks great, but what was your first take away from? Ah, from looking at these visuals? Brooke, um, sadness.
00:55:47
E it just so it's It's about as close to being done as you could have imagined at this point.
00:55:57
And so when you're looking at it, you're like, Oh, man, it it looks great like it's it's awesome, like the grasses in the outfield walls up the home run seats were ready, and then you're looking at it and you're like, Oh, I'm not gonna get to be there this year and it may be really, really sad.
00:56:13
It was like, I'm not gonna be able to see it till 2021 that's just a hope That's not even a guarantee at this point.
00:56:19
So number one very excited.
00:56:23
I think it looks awesome.
00:56:24
I love the new set up with center field being like the main insurance look, and it's, I think they've done a great job with it.
00:56:31
They've obviously had a lot of time to think about it and do what they want with it.
00:56:35
Um, because they didn't have to be ready by opening day.
00:56:37
And I'm excited, you know, I think what we get to go finally go back.
00:56:40
It's gonna be a really great experience, and I think it's gonna be awesome.
00:56:44
But it's just Ah, it just made me so sad when I was looking at it and I was like, I can't be there.
00:56:51
I'm not gonna be able to go in the bullpen bar and drunkenly yell at the opposing Hey, Yeah, And like powered on the glass, get thrown out of the stadium.
00:57:01
And it may be sad that I'm not gonna be able to do that, but I'm trying to be happy about it.
00:57:06
Looks trying to enjoy the positive.
00:57:08
It does look awesome.
00:57:09
It looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun and I can't wait to be back.
00:57:12
Guys, I can't wait S so I like addition.
00:57:15
More so than renovation.
00:57:17
Just Yeah, they change anything crazy.
00:57:19
It's a final peace.
00:57:21
It was the final piece the Dodger Stadium needed because I've talked crap about that area behind, understating for the refined behind the villians.
00:57:29
For the longest time, It's like you have all this beauty.
00:57:31
You have all these great sights and if you want Teoh, especially after the 2014 renovation with bars and the and the other eateries back there behind the pavilion, if you want to get to any of those, you have to walk through this ugly s as fault where you know, you have the smokers then of weirdos doing whatever and it was just And there's ah, chain link fence like this isn't a construction side.
00:58:00
This chain link fence has been here for decades.
00:58:03
It looked terrible.
00:58:05
And now you have, like we saw in the video, you have the Jackie Robinson statues out there.
00:58:10
Last we heard when ah, when the what we were at when were at the stadium of the beginning of March, I think it was.
00:58:18
We heard the Kovac statue was supposed to drop there in the center field plaza in June.
00:58:25
So we don't know if that's still the case.
00:58:26
I really also like you can't have it.
00:58:29
You gotta have a ceremony for it.
00:58:31
You can stand up people.
00:58:32
So I'm sure they have to push that back until fans are think it's they can still do it, though they could still do it like you should be honored like everybody else gets honored with people's sure press there, you know, he he's the Yeah, that deserves it, you know? So I mean, there there may be some press, but one of the things that really like that I don't know.
00:58:53
I'm pretty sure like we look at that video and we were I am.
00:58:58
I say that looks about 95% done outside.
00:59:02
We don't know what it's like in the guts, and that was gonna be the biggest concern.
00:59:06
Still, even if they had kept up the speed, the rate, they were working on it And for opening day, all the things that are going on under it, we don't know if there's those were gonna be ready.
00:59:15
But when Ah, I really like like the dirt walking path area like the sorta it's patio to get to the new concession stands.
00:59:26
I don't know if that's that's going to be like that for when the season the statement is officially complete, or if they are gonna lame or cement or whatever it looks like.
00:59:35
It's gonna be like that, cause for the greater part of the it's up to you might as well we got some more to talk about it.
00:59:42
But you know, you look at that and when that we see it on the screen, you know that the dirt areas there for the concessions like that's that's really cool.
00:59:48
It's something a little bit different.
00:59:50
Kind of gives it that sort of spring training complex veil feel it's gonna be different forever, right? I don't know.
00:59:57
I mean, with with all of eelgrass, do you think they're gonna go grab? Not really talking about big breasts that you're talking about.
01:00:03
Thea you're talking about in the actual, like eating the recession.
01:00:07
Your car? No, that's That's gonna be dirt.
01:00:09
Yeah, it is. That's what we think.
01:00:11
They're putting their gonna put picnic tables on top of it.
01:00:13
Yeah, ok is you Look at everything else.
01:00:16
Like the all of the landscaping.
01:00:18
It looks completed.
01:00:20
The screens air up all the led screens that we're gonna where they're gonna have up, um, What? They had like two full or three full video screens, plus a couple more ribbon boards back there.
01:00:31
It's got to be lit.
01:00:33
So has this great t j booth in the world.
01:00:36
It doesn't end those speakers.
01:00:38
Um, so we're sorry.
01:00:40
Like Norma says, she's sad to see the video again.
01:00:42
We're sorry.
01:00:43
It is Thea Society for sadness.
01:00:45
Well, it's it's it's just something we need.
01:00:47
And we appreciate John K.
01:00:49
I'm pretty sure he's not even supposed to be droning up there, but John John has done a fantastic work droning.
01:00:55
He does a lot of this stuff.
01:00:56
He hits Dodger Stadium.
01:00:57
He's he's hit it all throughout the off season.
01:01:00
He's doing so fi stadium.
01:01:01
He's not part of the extra $500 million so far is trying to get her the Rams trying to get Oh, yeah, poof, poof.
01:01:10
But everything about it looks perfect.
01:01:12
And I think now, like you, said Brooke, the outfield walls air up that that center field kids play areas up and the way it looks or the way um, Justin Turner mistakenly mentioned that he's gonna be going to the stadium this Thursday to kind of like stand in the box and get the batter's eye.
01:01:29
So I think we're going to get in some content out there.
01:01:31
Shut out Eric V.
01:01:33
I'm pretty sure he's about to be producing a video that he gets from players.
01:01:36
Ah, showing up a Dodger Stadium and kind of getting, ah, socially distance tour of of the new grounds.
01:01:42
But if j T saying he's gonna be there, it's because it's done.
01:01:48
Nothing is done.
01:01:49
That might be like I said.
01:01:50
The little odds and ends dot in the tes crossing the eyes, whatever it may be that things done and it looks.
01:01:58
It looks glorious and I want to be there.
01:01:59
And I'm sad that we can't be there because we could all be there together, getting them home run seats, getting really dumb drunk and yelling it at opponents, opponents, center fielders.
01:02:10
And we don't get that this year, and that's that's sad.
01:02:13
But if we do get baseball, ah, at least we get something and kicked out of the stadium next year. So excited.
01:02:22
There's another new title.
01:02:24
One of the final things I had, I'll kinda have.
01:02:26
This is my final thought in a way.
01:02:28
Ah, if you guys, unless you guys have anything else you want to add to it, sir, I don't thought will pull a few comments and then we'll go ahead and ah, uh, make way to the taco.
01:02:37
Stand on another thing to be sad about.
01:02:39
But there was a comment in a Facebook group about about the Dodger Stadium.
01:02:43
Ah, renovations.
01:02:44
And it said, Mr Zadie, it's out there, but I like it.
01:02:49
Sell seats at a discount, send them our photo, and they put a cardboard cutout in, like in the seats in your seats.
01:02:56
And then, you know, between plays or pitches or whatever, the cameras will scan the crowd.
01:03:01
Like just do it for fun. Question, Mark.
01:03:03
So how much would you pay to have your head? Ah, just a Xerox copy of your head plastered on a seat on the top deck. Brooke.
01:03:13
All right. I'd be, like, 200 bucks for that.
01:03:16
We're about to have responded there permanently.
01:03:18
It's each game over the match, I mean Oh, you mean like, per game? Yeah.
01:03:23
Not very much less than what I would pay for a normal top tech ticket.
01:03:27
I I said $1.
01:03:29
And then I said, You know, let's go.
01:03:30
Throwback prices will do $6 for top deck, $6 with civilian, and ah, and that we're good.
01:03:36
I don't remember any of the prices.
01:03:38
I just remember those But them.
01:03:41
Yeah, you know, it just Ah, apparently, I think I think we're I think we're being grainy guys that people are saying that we have 2005 graphics right now.
01:03:50
Um, I think I I think they were talking about the the people being posted in the stands.
01:03:59
Oh yeah, down the zero about the same thing.
01:04:02
It's about the same thing.
01:04:04
Lesley Taylor points out that it's like the K b o T u K B o has, like the They have the cardboard cutouts, but they also have, like, the blow up dolls.
01:04:12
Very, very strange.
01:04:14
I mean, just down with a car.
01:04:16
I got one other final thought that on that, but let's let's take a couple more.
01:04:22
Ah, a couple more comments here.
01:04:24
At least a $1000 behind.
01:04:26
Hopefully who house bucks? I think Lincoln met.
01:04:29
Like to stay behind.
01:04:31
Hopefully is a per game.
01:04:33
Are you asking per game, Clint or the per? Yeah, I'm saying for gamergate per game like $1 to get your stupid face plastered back there. I think that's fine.
01:04:44
Dollar visit Could have me looking at Mary Hart behind home plate.
01:04:49
Get the very heart of their ways up with Mary Hart with very hard Are you married? Wrong Shot out the Judy we left, but you stuck.
01:04:59
I'm just messenger Gary.
01:05:01
Tha This is the last episode Gary murdered.
01:05:08
But my second final thought here my final final thought I was at Ah Dodger game a long time ago in times of your BC is we call it before Corona.
01:05:19
And, um, it was it wasn't that long after the time where fans through ah, inflatable cork on the field for for Sammy Sosa after he got **** Kat corking his bat.
01:05:30
But it's somebody brought an inflatable like doll like a dirty, special Happy Time doll and they were hitting it around like a beach ball.
01:05:41
So good.
01:05:42
That was just glorious sight people at Dodger Stadium.
01:05:46
It wasn't a 99 cent store beach ball.
01:05:48

Love was a little bit of Cody love because he was having a hard time with it with existing as per usual.
00:08:52
But Gary wasn't there.
00:08:54
Uh, your yeah, he was.
00:08:58
Brooke, you want to start out? Yeah.
00:09:00
I mean, I could give you a couple quick highlights of a real quick number one.
00:09:04
They all hate Austin Barnes.
00:09:06
Number two.
00:09:07
Jo Koy does not care about language use in a touch of soup.
00:09:12
Call to number 2 80 to be a lot of Rizzo does.
00:09:16
Oh, yeah, that's so that was the follow up.
00:09:18
A lot of Rizzo definitely cares.
00:09:20
Ah, and number four Cody is is absolutely the least intelligent person I've ever heard of in my life.
00:09:26
And the whole team knows it, and it's kind of great.
00:09:28
Kind of really enjoy it.
00:09:30
Yeah.
00:09:31
Yeah, it was.
00:09:32
It was pretty good.
00:09:33
We got wrote Shane.
00:09:34
How does Cody charges for home before a work conference call? Because he's not the kind of he's not that kind of guy to plan ahead.
00:09:40
I don't think I don't think he thinks too much about that.
00:09:42
But Jim over on Facebook, says, Everyone dump it on Barnes.
00:09:45
He was awesome.
00:09:46
And it was I appreciate that I'm down for Ethier.
00:09:49
I think called him an angry little man Genesis.
00:09:53
That's very I love.
00:09:55
Ah, I love Andre.
00:09:56
Bullying him into telling his ah riel story about why he became a catcher are why I asked you. He was forced.
00:10:03
Be a catcher, Of course, both of them.
00:10:04
I asked you alums not not at the same time Dodgers Dodger Rebel asked.
00:10:09
What's in Austin Parnes? Ah, it's up of angry fish.
00:10:15
He's an angry boy without friends.
00:10:18
Tim echoes Jim's sentiments.
00:10:20
Is Barnes getting bagged on? Was was awesome and David Rogers is right.
00:10:25
They got beef Mr Roger's son has beef with, uh, with Austin Barnes.
00:10:29
But Leslie says, Who doesn't hate Austin Barnes? Woody? L may I think Alex Wood is a fake.
00:10:35
I mean friends, but it's like it's like bro ribbing, I guess.
00:10:39
You know, they're all like frat brothers in a way, and ah, man, like I think my second week in a row, my biggest take away from it, why I had another one I put on the website are on Twitter.
00:10:52
I forgot what it was, but Ah, my biggest take away is, um, on these guys desperately want Andre Ethier back in the locker room.
00:11:00
Oh, yeah, Sometimes I forget, like how important he was to the team as a whole, even when he wasn't playing like he absolutely is.
00:11:07
Like a veteran leadership that they just love and appreciate.
00:11:10
Like, even you could see, like Kershaw get giddy about Ethier.
00:11:13
I gotta Andres here, Andre.
00:11:15
Yeah, And it was like, That's weird to see, Kershaw.
00:11:17
I get excited to see somebody, but, um I mean, it's cool.
00:11:21
Like Andre. Definitely.
00:11:23
Trade definitely has some swings left at him.
00:11:25
Like, let's, you know, he definitely has some swings in him.
00:11:28
I'm surprised he just stopped, but he didn't pursue anything young.
00:11:33
He got killed by a lot of things.
00:11:35
Uh, but unfortunate timing was the biggest thing that killed him.
00:11:38
I mean, that that freakin shin fracture that he had, like, derailed his entire career because it just wouldn't stop hurting him.
00:11:47
Yeah, he had the shin thing that didn't go away, and then he was coming up at the end of his contract couldn't hit live lefties at any point in his career, and he didn't have negligee is GM anymore.
00:11:56
So it wasn't get a gig anywhere, so he wasn't gonna get a three year deal.
00:11:59
So rest in peace.
00:12:00
Dre Day.
00:12:02
So he's retiring about Arizona.
00:12:05
Katie would give a kidney to get Dre back in the Dodgers uniform.
00:12:07
That might be too much.
00:12:08
I don't know what the going on.
00:12:09
I don't think he needs a UK.
00:12:11
Yeah, he probably has a visa Shin, if you have one.
00:12:14
I mean kidneys, I think, are like 5000 on the black market.
00:12:17
Right now.
00:12:19
I feel like this that I much frightened why you know that he's thought about selling.
00:12:24
I have, like, three kidney stones in my kidney right now, so let's get rid of this one.
00:12:28
Tim brings up a point that I had in the back of my head taxi squad for Ethier. It's Dodgers.
00:12:33
They're not gonna need all 30 40.
00:12:34
What? However, many people were supposed to be on the active roster, the or the taxes going all that like they kids, it's trip with Ross Stripling.
00:12:41
Hopefully, that boy sleeps again one day but he had mentioned the question was, it was It was with off air General.
00:12:48
It was who was like the best dressed Dodger. Whatever.
00:12:53
And they said Russell Martin he said, Russell Martin He said, Well, he's not on the roster right now And I was like, Oh, do they have a verbal agreement with our mark to come back? Russell, Nathan Coltrane, Jensen, Martin To come back to my Los Angeles Dodgers so I can creep him out at the next meeting.
00:13:12
If you're looking at What? Where's my dad? That I have? Ah, yeah.
00:13:24
That's what happened today, Brooke.
00:13:25
That's what happens when he talks about Russell.
00:13:28
That's what happened in real life.
00:13:32
Yeah, he gets very little ******* and doesn't know what to say.
00:13:35
It doesn't know how toe I got.
00:13:38
I got liquid courage right here, boys.
00:13:42
Sponsor you gotta face for the sponsor.
00:13:43
And Tim, by the way, he penned a fine story for our Dodgers nation dot com about, you know, please, Dodgers, we love God.
00:13:52
Bring back Russell Martin, and you know, it makes makes all the sense for them to bring it back.
00:13:57
It doesn't mean if you're looking at the number of games played the roster expansion, it makes sense to have 1/3 catcher.
00:14:03
There is no third catcher in the organization right now that can fill that gap.
00:14:07
I mean, unless you're talking to Rocky Gale, which is, honestly, a very boring way to fill that gap ever.
00:14:13
Keeper. It's not ready.
00:14:16
Gail, Rocky get his family.
00:14:19
Doesn't even call him home for Christmas.
00:14:20
Okay, Rocky giggles.
00:14:23
Sorry, probably nice.
00:14:27
I don't know what it's like in Guinea. David.
00:14:29
Freeze.
00:14:30
Megan says.
00:14:31
We all need Martin back in our lives.
00:14:32
Jim says Russ for the pen.
00:14:34
Yes, yes, yeah, there's your closer.
00:14:38
Well, let's say by August.
00:14:39
But by August is only gonna be like a month into the season.
00:14:43
Um, I'll start closer. Russell Martin.
00:14:46
That's what's up right there at, Perez said.
00:14:48
I could be the third catcher and and I have been known to be a catcher as points in my life.
00:14:53
I don't know about catching Grad a role I don't think I could do.
00:14:56
That just shatters my thumb.
00:15:00
There was another one I liked.
00:15:01
I liked them asking Barnes e.
00:15:03
You know, how does he catch 100 mile an hour fastball just like I don't know, uh, happens.
00:15:08
It's looks like safety.
00:15:11
Anyway, I don't know.
00:15:12
I don't really know how you describe how you catch 100 miles per hour fastball.
00:15:16
Like, I would just say magic.
00:15:19
Well, I'm just that good.
00:15:20
All right.
00:15:21
Oh, I love that.
00:15:22
Ah, Who the hell was it that said it? It was Andre.
00:15:25
Andre said, Ah, it's God give you he He dropped a, uh, domingo yellow in there, so we'll have Ah, I think hopefully we're gonna have that full Dodger zoom party on our YouTube channel.
00:15:39
Probably tomorrow, which is today for you listening on the podcast side a Wednesday, So check it out youtube dot com slash judges nation TV, and, uh, it should be a good time.
00:15:48
That was for everybody out there in the audience.
00:15:50
I apologize, uh, for my actions, so I don't Guys, we got to talk about the state of the ba*****t state of the baseball.
00:16:00
We gotta talk about riel things right now, because today the governator, but not the Governator.
00:16:06
That how many like he's how many past cover native 2nd 1 passed.
00:16:12
You haven't Gavin, not Lux newsome, which is official name Newsome came out today and did his weekly press conference thing.
00:16:19
And, ah, he pretty much gave L.
00:16:21
A hope for the baseball, where he said, I probably should have had his full quote open already, but in short or in full, because I have it here now.
00:16:30
Sports events could return in that first week or so of June without Spectators, and with modifications and very specific ripped prescriptive conditions.
00:16:40
They have to be met first.
00:16:41
We can also begin to move forward on a number of different sectors, and economy will open up again blah, blah, blah.
00:16:47
Most importantly or third.
00:16:48
Most important, he also said, like, for example, getting a haircut might open up again, which I know.
00:16:54
Brooke, you have to be thrilled at that idea.
00:16:55
But you have newsome given people good news for once.
00:17:01
What is your What was your immediate take away after seeing that broke me? Three? Uh, I remember the There was like the whole question about whether or not baseball would be able to come back in California at all after the fact that MLB was giving their proposal to the players union and shooting for July 4 worth all that nonsense.
00:17:22
Ah, we talked about it.
00:17:23
We're like, Well, California basically said that the stay at home order is gonna go through July.
00:17:28
So how does that work with the Dodgers? And so after that, there was a cold that came out that said that the Dodgers had worked it out with with with Newsome and that there's a chance that they get a pass on it and that they be able to play regardless, as long as there is no fan.
00:17:43
So when I saw this official report, like come directly from him, that said Bay where you can have sports in California I mean, if you just think about like, two or three weeks ago, he had said something that, like, almost completely shut down the thought about exports in California at all.
00:17:59
Where is, like, I don't see NFL having like football, and it was like, Oh, so we're not having sports in California And now all of a sudden we are, and that speaks to a lot of the conditions of the health standards across the state and across the country, and I don't know any of those numbers because I'm not that guy, but it sounds like to me things, they're getting a little bit better.
00:18:19
And if he's allowing this to happen, that means things are starting to flatten out, get better.
00:18:23
So it's, if anything, encouraging.
00:18:26
I think you and I both know know the financial standpoint of baseball and the players organization in the uphill battle that that faces still.
00:18:34
But I mean, this is just one of those boxes to check off to get to the next step.
00:18:38
And it's a big one.
00:18:40
It is. It is a big one.
00:18:41
Yeah, what? We'll get more into the money side of it cause that's ultimately going to be the biggest hang up for baseball returning.
00:18:48
Besides health besides state laws and all these other things, it's gonna come down to the money, and that's unfortunate.
00:18:54
But, um, you know, with that Well, I guess let's get into those next hold up again.
00:18:58
We have the road to baseball essentially paved in California.
00:19:05
What of those next set of holdups? It's the health stuff, So I called this particular section here health in the time of Rhona early last week.
00:19:15
We had mentioned last week I believe it was.
00:19:18
We found out more about it later on after we recorded the show.
00:19:21
But, ah, MLB owners and players came to an agreement about one huge part about playing in 2020 and that was staying healthy through a pandemics and healthy through the co bed, the cove in and Gary, you have a ah, you have a graphic throw up there.
00:19:36
You know there's a bunch of different restrictions for players and for on field personnel.
00:19:41
So I mean, even the dumbest you know, little things, like exchanging the lineup at home plate.
00:19:49
That's that's one of, um ah, we see him here on the screen.
00:19:52
You know there's going to be new ball that's put in play any time.
00:19:55
It's touched by anybody besides the pitcher and the catcher.
00:19:58
Ah, fielders are encouraged.
00:20:00
Step away from the base runners and balls it out of play.
00:20:02
The big one and I.
00:20:04
I enjoyed this in the zoom call, you know, talking about the fact that players can't used chewing tobacco, they can't spit.
00:20:12
There's no sunflower seeds where I draw the line at sunflower seeds, but the spitting and the touching and you know, the licking and the hugging and squeezing and loving every day and all that kind of stuff that's gonna be, I think, the biggest problem.
00:20:24
Understandably.
00:20:25
People gotta wash their hands between innings, half innings, you know, whatever they can get to the dugout.
00:20:30
Ah, handling any of their equipment.
00:20:32
A If you know what I mean on showering will apparently be discourage at team facilities.
00:20:40
But ah, uh, along with that, or in addition to that, you know, they say there's gonna be testing multiple times a week, Gary, and go and close that one now doesn't be testing multiple times a week for players.
00:20:53
Ah, yes, there.
00:20:54
What, the using a facility in Utah or something like that? Yeah, it's ah, it's one of the facilities that Major League Baseball helps convert to a testing facility.
00:21:03
When they agreed to that massive study, you know where they were, like, everybody's gonna take part and sample letting things like, Yeah, yeah, yeah.
00:21:11
With with that too.
00:21:12
Didn't isn't part of it, because obviously there's the public perception of how come all of these big leaguers welcome.
00:21:18
Athletes could get a test, But I can't because for the greater part, it seems like if you want to test you can kind of get a test that I'm I'm sure it's not every single time.
00:21:28
Yeah, last week.
00:21:29
So if you want.
00:21:30
Yeah, we don't know if that's everywhere across the country yet, but we know in California, that's what we care about Governor of California.
00:21:39
Yeah, he said Governator to drinking.
00:21:41
That better now? Yeah.
00:21:44
So I know the public perception for a major league baseball that they were worried about, and understandably so was that people were gonna look at it and say, Like, why are they given any sort of priority? I mean, baseball put the money towards it.
00:21:56
I don't know if you put the money where it happen towards their own tests and they said they'll also, you know, test other people out of it.
00:22:04
So there felt that your government sucks.
00:22:07
You know what? You know, Uh uh, yeah, I would say failing government cheers for a fine point give you covering every business, every company.
00:22:17
Right now, they know that it's part of their job now to provide a safe environment for the employees.
00:22:23
Just like, you know, if any company that you're working out, you know, you any company that has proper health insurance.
00:22:29
They're required to tell you have a ergonomics expert come by your desk and help you set up everything so that they're not liable for putting you in a bad spot.
00:22:38
So, Harry, bury that person has not showed up to my house.
00:22:43
I wouldn't file a grievance with you, you know, which was, uh I mean, you hear, like Twitter.
00:22:54
They actually made it permanent Now that all their in place is gonna work remote, you know? So a lot of these companies know that the costs are gonna be significant to help protect protect their employees and protecting employees means testing, knowing which employees are gonna be sick, whatever it is, you know, their insurance companies are going to dictate it.
00:23:13
The insurance companies are going to dictate it, because after all this is done, we're gonna figure out how much does it cost to treat Corona virus? And then from there, that's how much everybody's premiums are gonna go up.
00:23:27
Certainly is a lot to consider in terms of the medical side of things across the country goes, that's gonna go on for quite a while.
00:23:34
Um, but well, in guards of Major League baseball.
00:23:37
Clint I wanted toe.
00:23:38
I kind of just wanted to ask you about these rules real quick before we moved on.
00:23:42
I mean, even these like simple things, like from a pitcher's perspective.
00:23:46
Like, you know, this is, well, a zai do.
00:23:47
If you have to sanitize your hands between innings, that's not good for your grip on the baseball.
00:23:54
And so, aside from that, there's also the fact that who's revving up the ball with clay before games? Or are you still rubbing up those balls? I did see stuff on that.
00:24:04
Ah, I think I think barstool or somebody did a study about barstool doing a study so you could really take that one to the bank. Dark times.
00:24:14
We're looking at bar stool and Trevor Bauer for ah, entertainment online, but the ah, the study found, and I you know, I wouldn't quote me on it exactly.
00:24:25
But the study found that you know, hand sanitizer or whatever didn't affect the player's grip.
00:24:31
Of course, you know you have.
00:24:34
I mean, every half inning.
00:24:36
I do have an example from that, my friend was is a baker, and then he has his own shopping downtown, a capital.
00:24:42
So he used hand sanitizers multiple times a day before all this just to keep his hands clean.
00:24:47
And if you ever felt his hands afterwards, the hand sanitizers full alcohol dehydrates your hands.
00:24:54
Yeah, tries it out if you feel it out.
00:24:56
His hands feel like leather.
00:24:57
They actually, they would give him super grip on the baseball.
00:25:01
So I'm just saying, like me, but that's after, like, years of using it.
00:25:05
But well, I mean, yeah, it really depends on you Don't want like like you want nice, firm, supple leather like in a new car not warning broken, gunned down 10 year old Acura TL leather that that was his head, that's all trapped like sandpaper at a certain when you shake his hands.
00:25:21
It's just you're like, Oh, at least are clean, you know? But it's just sandpaper hands.
00:25:25
So that's the downside of hand sanitizer.
00:25:28
They're gonna have toe wash your hands and, you know, with so social ever you know, sanitizer, though, like you gotta figure a lot of these pictures.
00:25:37
You know, the unwritten rule of going to the rosin.
00:25:39
Whatever.
00:25:40
Having bits and pieces of things to ah help sticky up their hands a little bit.
00:25:45
I can't imagine rosin working all that well with ah, or are pine tar working all that well with hand sanitizer? It definitely changes.
00:25:54
Points are it definitely changes things up.
00:25:56
Uh, it's gonna be a weird game.
00:25:58
And I'm sure they're gonna have toe dictate what kind of hand sanitizer you're allowed to use and what certain percentage alcohol it's allowed to have any versus I don't know, moisturizer or lotion or whatever it's gonna be.
00:26:10
There's gonna be a lot of things that go into this that we haven't thought about.
00:26:12
But I thought one really interesting tidbit from that little description that came from the athletic.
00:26:19
And that was the report that was released was that fighting is banned, which fighting was already banned.
00:26:29
It was ever like.
00:26:30
Was it ever sanctioned whose it is? They weren't ever like you could fight, but you probably shouldn't.
00:26:36
But it was if they had to make sure like, Hey, guys, you really can't fight now like you really can't.
00:26:40
And I I thought that was like that.
00:26:43
Maybe left when I saw that the little know it was like, Yeah.
00:26:46
I mean, you're not supposed to fight.
00:26:47
I got that pulling, Pulling a barstool to for here.
00:26:51
The starting nine.
00:26:52
Guy.
00:26:53
That guy Jared, Whoever Kravis Never angry little boy.
00:26:57
He was talking Teoh the Bruce Hoffer Phillies outfielder Bruce offer for former Future Dodger and Harper.
00:27:04
Uh, I'm aware.
00:27:05
I said Bruce Hoffer.
00:27:06
That's what I do around here.
00:27:07
Guys, if you're new to the show A cheers.
00:27:09
I'm gonna tune in.
00:27:11
Really Gotta listen to the whole show.
00:27:13
But he was asking about that.
00:27:14
Funny enough.
00:27:15
Kravis asked Harper about, you know, the ah helmet incident with Hunter Strickland.
00:27:20
All that and and the conversation went to white Not just have it like hockey where it's like you guys want to fight f it.
00:27:27
Just go for it.
00:27:28
You guys get this long? Somebody hits the ground.
00:27:30
That's what I mean.
00:27:31
These dudes want to fight.
00:27:32
There's no reason for all these people for the dugouts to empty out.
00:27:36
And you can't do that these days.
00:27:38
You know, Plead, is there a good reason? Please isn't.
00:27:40
Ah Doesn't have a job right now because he knows you can't fight the pirates next seats the entire piracy.
00:27:45
Entire pirates, along with Amir Garrett at least some inside.
00:27:49
Um, yeah.
00:27:51
So I'm on board with that.
00:27:53
Just let two people fight and then then quarantine him.
00:27:56
Boom there.
00:27:57
I mean, there's officially why NHL survived this long.
00:28:00
People, People don't really watch hockey for hockey as much anymore as they used to invites.
00:28:06
You were just talking about before we went live.
00:28:08
How you you enjoy the fight this weekend? Because I want It was the only sports you had, But also, it's entertaining stuff.
00:28:15
Yeah.
00:28:16
I mean, UFC is definitely gone downhill in the last five years.
00:28:18
Uh, used to be really great.
00:28:21
Now there not too great about still pays the entertaining.
00:28:26
If you guys watched, I'd like to hear your opinions below because there was obviously no fans.
00:28:30
And that's something that we're gonna have to get used to with baseball.
00:28:33
And I feel like it's may be different with baseball, but in a good way, like it's really different in UFC when there's people supposed to be ringside, like all around you and and, you know, they're announcing you and the guys are like pumping their fists, and there's no fans there, but I'd like to know if you guys watch it.
00:28:53
Let me know what you thought of it below, cause we got to get used to know fans, guys, a couple comments here.
00:28:57
Katie says, I'm gonna miss players yelling an umpire's faces, though I think JT actually did bring that up.
00:29:03
Or he addressed that with, uh, probably Jonah, I don't know, like we keep talking about this.
00:29:07
I don't know if we've mentioned it on air or not, but it's so it's so weird.
00:29:11
It's so funny how these players are just kind of going in a rotation like who's in to go interview with what podcast or what show or be on the zoom call this week.
00:29:21
And then you see him on also on SportsNet and you see him here and then you just get this market saturation.
00:29:25
You can't go get him and whatever.
00:29:27
That's why we haven't bothered to get frickin players on here of late.
00:29:30
But, um, I got was going with that if we all have a different take on it.
00:29:36
Oh, yeah, we got We got some things in the works, guys.
00:29:38
Keep it tuned here, but attitude Keep it tuned.
00:29:41
That's what people say, right? Press alike.
00:29:43
Um matched that heart button fam squad.
00:29:47
I was going somewhere.
00:29:48
Oh, yeah, Like JT talking about it.
00:29:49
You know how he's fully aware that he's been guilty of, you know, the yelling and umpires and all that.
00:29:56
It was more along the lines of the conversation about, you know, the robot umpires and all that.
00:30:02
If I'm not mistaken, I think you Ah, he wrote up something about that, Brooke.
00:30:06
But, um, you know, still, JT is aware of the rules and and all that kind of stuff.
00:30:11
Whatever.
00:30:12
One question I do have is, you know, for the players like JT who were, like, gloves and all the patty.
00:30:18
And here, mainly it's the gloves.
00:30:20
Right? Um, you know, that's gonna That's gonna get infected.
00:30:25
Like, Are they going to wear new gloves every time they go out on the field? That means they have to have how many sets, right that a Serie Hey, Siri, How much? How much cove it can a beard hold? Yeah, JC's gonna shake homeboys And how Whoa, It's our word of the day, boys.
00:30:43
So, buddy, people I mean there there are definitely a lot of things to consider that Ah, along with those rules.
00:30:52
Those who test positive will be quarantined until they test negative twice, which certainly changes up the pace of the season.
00:30:59
Like I mean, imagine if I mean, I can't think of a team, right? I mean, who is like a team that's on the fringe, but okay, the Angels.
00:31:06
How about the Angels? They're on the fringe.
00:31:07
But if they don't have their star player, they're not on the fringes.
00:31:10
If the Angels Mike Trout test positive in the middle of a playoff run, he's out for two weeks.
00:31:16
I mean, at least he's gonna be gone for at least two weeks before he tested negative twice and no quickly got out of hand with her thesis.
00:31:23
14 games? Yeah, yeah.
00:31:26
And so when you think about that, that definitely changed the course of the season because you got to be really careful with some of your more important guys.
00:31:33
I mean, the whole team.
00:31:34
But really, those more important guys like you, you talk about like Shohei Otani or Mark Mike Trout getting getting infected like that ruins your whole season.
00:31:42
You might as well just throw in the towel at that point.
00:31:45
So I mean, there's a lot of things that are going to go into the season whenever it actually happens, and it sounds like it's actually happening.
00:31:52
Um, and as another part of that, those who have been in contact with positive tests will also have to be instantly tested as well.
00:32:00
So the good news is people are being tested.
00:32:02
It's part of the process.
00:32:04
You're going to see a lot of these players really upset, I think because the testing is not fun.
00:32:09
From what I understand.
00:32:10
I had a friend take it the other day and he was like, Yeah, that was the worst thing that's ever happened to me And then he's like and I've had a prostate exam.
00:32:16
So who I was like, Oh boy, rest F From the chat, I want to take a sidebar here.
00:32:26
Ah, to to call out our our new friend here, Dark fantasy says you need to lose weight bad.
00:32:31
So, Brooke, you for some time trying were in quarantine but be hitting hard.
00:32:38
I love making it this many episodes, and I feel like that's the first high quality fat jokes.
00:32:44
So, uh, quality quality comment from dark fantasy.
00:32:48
We're sorry.
00:32:49
Your brother never loved you.
00:32:51
Okay.
00:32:53
Uh, anyways, anyways, anything else you guys want to bring in two of us find maybe a couple more comments? Ah, they want us to stop saying the m word.
00:33:01
So we will do that.
00:33:02
We will honor Leslie's requests and not keep going there.
00:33:06
Extreme. Kane says, Hey.
00:33:08
Ah, high extreme Kane.
00:33:09
I love son raising.
00:33:12
I see what you did there, Prez Want to know to even lift, bro? Hell, yeah, but my ass out of the seat a couple times a day.
00:33:19
Alfredo says the mustache adds £10. Thanks.
00:33:22
Off Right up.
00:33:23
Good looking out, brother.
00:33:24
Appreciate you. Oh, God.
00:33:26
I need to remind myself title this episode that mustache pounds.
00:33:32
Uh, Nina G man called us a finger prick.
00:33:34
No, I heard that contest.
00:33:35
You ve a finger prick.
00:33:36
I haven't seen that 10 I don't I don't.
00:33:38
That's a lot less.
00:33:39
Yet instead of shoving the Q tip to your brain and scraping it or whatever the hell that is a lot of there's a lot of tests.
00:33:46
It's just that the problem is that there, that's all of it.
00:33:49
Yeah, well, the problem is that myself and Clint's are not.
00:33:53
What's that word educated? So all we know is that they shove a Q tip up your nose, and that's one of the testing that great, you know, just like right up there, right into your going.
00:34:05
Yeah.
00:34:06
So I'm gonna be home now for the rest of my life. I don't want that.
00:34:09
Ah, Hatfield says he enjoys prostate exams.
00:34:14
Gonna take that completely out of context.
00:34:18
We're very proud of You broke me three for that one.
00:34:21
So again, let's Ah, let's kind of move on to the other part of of the biggest hold up for baseball.
00:34:30
It's not going to be the health money enough.
00:34:31
It's not the pandemic.
00:34:33
That's the holdup for baseball in 2020.
00:34:36
No, it's the teams, It's the owners and it's the players.
00:34:40
And it comes down to money.
00:34:41
Money, money.
00:34:42
Who do you trust? So this is where you queue a pink Floyd.
00:34:46
But, uh, no, I always go with Ah, Joker.
00:34:51
Batman. 89.
00:34:53
Jack Nicholson.
00:34:55
Great scene. Great scene.
00:34:56
But to, ah to give the full circle here to paint the full picture.
00:35:01
I wrote it out so it's easier for me to kind of give through, you know, in late March is a lot of people know many of you, especially you. That guy right there.
00:35:08
Uh uh.
00:35:09
Not you, the other guy.
00:35:10
MLB, the owners and the players all came to an agreement that paid them through the end of May.
00:35:14
I forgot what the money was, what the number was, but whatever, that was less important.
00:35:18
And it also that promise them like a percentage of the season salary.
00:35:22
But there was fine print in that agreement that everybody signed and that fine print waas.
00:35:28
If fans aren't allowed to get into the stadium, then maybe we got to revisit this contract.
00:35:36
Well, it seems like the players art quite ready to honor that fine print. Understandably.
00:35:44
But the owners and MLB I even thinking this are really trying, Teoh, trying to stand behind what was agreed upon in a way or the other way around there, trying to you guys no time with the other way around.
00:35:58
Players want to say no.
00:36:00
We didn't agree to that.
00:36:02
And the other way around is we want to get more money or we want to balance it out because the way it's looking right now.
00:36:10
How much was it like almost 650 grand per beta per game that so baseball would be losing Baseball said that on average they'd be losing $640,000 for each game played in empty ballparks.
00:36:26
So from the ownership side of things, I'm it's really shocking to me because I think we all kind of thought it was a little bit backwards where the owners would be fighting for more games.
00:36:37
Ah, but when when you're looking at it, their argument is like, Hey, based on the number of losses and things that we have, the financial losses with local TV deals, all these things, the gate revenue that we usually have, the food revenue that we usually get per game, all these things that go into it, everything that goes into it.
00:36:53
They're like we're actually losing money when we're playing games because we also have to pay the players.
00:36:57
So if we have to pay him that prorated salary, we're losing a ton of money because they're saying Hey, rulers in $640,000 a game, you know that's a lot.
00:37:05
You know what's funny to me is when I read that I read, Oh, they made 16 year, $40,000 a game for the last yeah, 1,000,000,000 years.
00:37:12
So, yeah, your money is generally, you know, it's definitely what you're looking at your like.
00:37:18
People are going to read into that a different way.
00:37:19
Guys, I think there's, I say that absolutely two sides to this argument and both of them kind of are wrong in a way, right? Yeah, they made that money, no doubt.
00:37:31
But either way, like the players shouldn't be the one to put themselves at risk financially in this particular situation.
00:37:39
But baseball or teams are lined up to lose.
00:37:44
They lose more money playing games than they would not playing those 82 games that are reportedly on on the docket, which is weird.
00:37:54
I mean, I get it.
00:37:55
What? That's the way it is right now. It's way it's lined up.
00:37:57
They'd lose an extra, you know, chump change, $1,000,000,000.
00:38:00
If they played 82 game back and said, you need to be more specific, you need toe.
00:38:04
Be specific about which timeline you want, what finances you need, what revenue you're looking at and They're like You just told us you lose $640,000 per game, prove us to prove that to us And they're like, Well, you need to be more specific with And they're like, What the hell is wrong with you guys? So for me, this is like looking at the C B, A expiring and at the end of 2023 like this is something that you and I have been trading for years, and all of a sudden it's happening in 2020 in the wrong context.
00:38:29
And then everybody grab that and then made the players look horrible.
00:38:33
I believe, like, you know, the players have a good like smell.
00:38:37
I thought, you know, voiced it pretty well.
00:38:39
He articulated his points pretty well, but the end of the day, it's like I don't want get paid $50,000 to play baseball.
00:38:48
You know, like that's how you say, and there's like, That's old, everybody hurt And then you have doctors, nurses going.
00:38:54
I'm going every day, risking my life for that stuff.
00:38:56
Then that's just mixed up So that owners No, I mean they've been around this too long to not know how to play this media game and they put it out there and they've been ahead of every time.
00:39:06
No player and no member from the players association has been actively trying to get baseball back.
00:39:12
That's their problem.
00:39:13
They don't have somebody there to try and figure things out with them.
00:39:16
So right now only the owners are controlling the the narrative, you know? Yeah, you got that? And then you have Ah, you know, on the other side, I would say the only thing for the players has sort of been like maybe Scott, Boris, you know, inside of ah, inside of John Hammond's pocket or whatever.
00:39:34
It may be like that every time you hear from the players, unless they get asked the same stupid questions over and over again on that every ah, on every medium they go visit.
00:39:44
But ultimately we've hit a point where something has to give.
00:39:48
One side needs a cave, and it really needs to be the owners a little bit more mean players.
00:39:55
The money's gotten just dumb in professional sports.
00:39:59
We I think everybody in the god**** world can agree to that.
00:40:03
Shot out Jo Koy, making bacon agree to that.
00:40:07
But somebody needs to take a little bit of concession here.
00:40:10
And, you know, at some point in time, whatever side takes it, you know, MLB are, say the owners are still gonna hike up the prices everywhere they can to make up for whether or not they stick with the original agreement Now where they find an agreement that works better for for them or the players or whatever the hell it.
00:40:28
Maybe we're all gonna end up paying for the bottom line for tickets, for concessions and all that kind of stuff.
00:40:34
It sucks.
00:40:35
It just really sucks.
00:40:36
But, ah, you're talking about.
00:40:37
So now you're talking about Kershaw? Snell, uh, I would not want, you know, I don't know the guy.
00:40:43
The only thing I know about Blakes knows he's he's nasty, and he's got, ah, American League Cy Young Award under his belt.
00:40:51
But just the perception of that dude is not the guy I want representing my league or the players and any sort of way he just I mean that we we grow up in different areas, different hoods.
00:41:04
I grew up in the hood here on the borderline of wittier and PICO I got, I got Yeah, I got hoes in different area codes.
00:41:10
I got friends at all talk different land on the on A I say dumb crap or all the time, too.
00:41:15
But there's just away.
00:41:16
There's a cadence.
00:41:17
There's a way you carry yourself when you're talking about something as big as that is.
00:41:20
And that was probably like you said Gary.
00:41:23
You know, just in passing, talking **** in a twitch stream.
00:41:26
I not have been the best look for you and your your your peers.
00:41:32
The thing I didn't like about that was that Clayton Kershaw was like, very heavily misquoted when he was talking about Blakes now and that drove me up.
00:41:39
I drove me Oppa, Wallman, and unfortunately I mean, he was misquoted by some people that we kind of partner with on something so I don't wanna get to specific with it, but basically they were like it was like Clayton.
00:41:50
Kershaw agrees with Blake Snell and is like, that's not the case at all. Clean.
00:41:54
Kirsten was like, I understand where he's coming from.
00:41:55
I understand what he means.
00:41:57
There's a better time to do that.
00:41:58
There are representatives who do that for us, There's, you know, I I understand what he means.
00:42:02
But ultimately, like the two sides need to come together and make an agreement.
00:42:06
He didn't say like, Hey, this is on the owners, Which is what Blake Snell said, Hey, this is on the owners.
00:42:11
Clayton Kershaw was like, Hey, I understand what he means.
00:42:14
The two sides need to come together and figure this out, though, and I posed the tweet on Twitter.
00:42:18
Obviously, the other day it said, Who do you trust? You trust the millionaires of the billionaires? And it's a common misconception is that everybody who plays is a millionaire.
00:42:26
They're not all millionaires.
00:42:28
I mean, we we specifically like us three have talked about guys that when we're considering the pay cuts being taken, you don't think about like I don't want to think about the Kershaw's.
00:42:39
I don't want to think about the Harpers.
00:42:41
I don't want to think about the Gerrit Cole's of the world.
00:42:43
I want to think about the mat babies of the world.
00:42:45
I want to think about the Kris Taylor's of the world.
00:42:47
I want to think about these guys who aren't making in comparison.
00:42:50
I mean Taylor, I guess, got a pretty big bump.
00:42:53
But in comparison, aren't making its on the money.
00:42:55
So when you start considering all these cuts, Gary, I think you landed on a figure that, like Matt Baby might be making about.
00:43:02
He might be making about $100,000 this year after all the cuts.
00:43:06
And then he attacks.
00:43:07
Yeah, and they just bought a A lot of you might make more than map 80 this year if this all goes through, like there's so many things to consider.
00:43:16
And when you're looking at the lives of these players, yeah, they make a lot of money.
00:43:21
Yeah, some of them make, like 30 something $1,000,000.
00:43:24
Yeah, that's the kind of money, But on the flip side of that, they have something that you do not.
00:43:30
They can play baseball, you would have professional level, and you want to watch them play that sport.
00:43:36
They have that to offer to you.
00:43:37
You do not have that to offer to them too.
00:43:39
So to say that I have really find it hard to say that players should accept anything less than what they're worth.
00:43:46
Gary, you know as well as I do.
00:43:47
If you do a job very well, you get paid for it.
00:43:50
And you don't accept anything less than what you think.
00:43:52
You should be paid for it and and dark.
00:43:54
So for never do anything for free, right? Yeah, exactly.
00:43:57
That's it for the love of the They're like, yeah, they should do because they love the game.
00:44:02
It's like, Yeah, I'm sure they love the game, but they still have bills to pay. They still have a few.
00:44:06
Should have planned for this.
00:44:07
Onley last so long they're not playing until you're 65.
00:44:10
You're not getting that payday until you're 65.
00:44:12
Your If you're lucky, you play until you're 35.
00:44:16
If you're lucky, most guys aren't that lucky.
00:44:18
So to say that they should just write off this year and forget about it and just take a giant pay cut and just let the owners walk away, smiling and happy And old Nan's That's irresponsible.
00:44:27
I think it's incredibly irresponsible to think, like I agree, they make a ton of money, and in comparison to teachers and people that I think should be paid a lot more e.
00:44:36
I think you know teachers should be paid a lot more out.
00:44:39
Spend all this time with its.
00:44:41
So I'm gonna definitely throw that one out there comparatively.
00:44:45
Obviously a lot bore.
00:44:46
But, I mean, if I'm gonna side with the millionaires or billionaires, I'm gonna side with millionaires.
00:44:52
It's basically Tim.
00:44:53
I mean, that's something that dictates salaries in this capitalist society.
00:44:58
If there's more people willing to take your job for that amount, Yo, sorry.
00:45:03
You know, but baseball you qualify to get paid that amount.
00:45:07
So I get some people, like, definitely teachers, nurses, doctors, teachers and nurses, for sure are some of the most underpaid people in the frickin world for what they do, you know.
00:45:18
And it's just a matter of figuring out, you know, hopefully a society when they figured out how to compensate them.
00:45:22
Maybe tax breaks, maybe free education, maybe all this kind of stuff stuff that governments can do.
00:45:27
But baseball is still.
00:45:29
There's only a finite number of people that could actually do this job because there's only a finite number of people open slots for this job.
00:45:35
So are they going well? I mean, Brooke and I can do it.
00:45:39
We just can't do This lake is this Blake smell can just straight in straight up.
00:45:42
Say, I'm not gonna play for that money.
00:45:44
The owners can say, OK, some one of the miners would.
00:45:48
And then Snell's car, you know, now.
00:45:51
But then there's now the players.
00:45:53
They're gonna back Snell up because you can't do that.
00:45:55
Then then for sure, Yeah, you think you can And you know Tim Rogers in a back to back Tim Rogers comments here in a second.
00:46:01
But I got a sidebar, uh, selfishly and say, I see you want me.
00:46:05
He's talking crap about me talking crap and that's not cool.
00:46:08
He's friend of mine.
00:46:09
Anyways, Tim says the MLB Players Association is leaderless.
00:46:12
Tony Clark and company messed up badly with the last c b a witch, the most points we've ever awarded here on the show.
00:46:19
And then, ah, second tweet, he says.
00:46:21
Future, the game may be at stake where they might not ever play again.
00:46:25
And that's the biggest thing that we're at right now is that if they do something stupid where they can find the way and already said it here, they could find a way to play the game No responsibly.
00:46:38
They could be healthy.
00:46:39
They could test.
00:46:40
That could be smart about it.
00:46:41
They know socially distance.
00:46:43
Ah, 82 games plus playoffs.
00:46:47
And they don't because they can't work together on ah financial number.
00:46:52
Then then what's the point of this like we don't We don't deserve baseball or they don't deserve us.
00:46:58
His fans, I should say, because they're all just greedy pricks.
00:47:04
It would be incredibly irresponsible of both sides to not be able to come to agreement one way or another who takes the main session? I mean, realistically, like when you're looking at it, let's say the season was called off because we couldn't come to an agreement.
00:47:17
It would have.
00:47:18
People would put it on the players.
00:47:20
That's what it would come down to.
00:47:21
They would say You didn't take a pay cut.
00:47:22
You didn't give in to what they needed to make the thing make the league happen.
00:47:26
This is on you and it would ultimately fall on them.
00:47:28
And that's unfortunate.
00:47:30
That's unfortunate because realistically, when you're looking at it, the owners could very easily make this season happen and take a loss and hopefully recoup it over the next five years, they could, and they probably will.
00:47:42
But, I mean, when you're looking at, these guys are really taking hits, and I again I look at those lower level guys who are really not going to be making out really well this year, one way or another, like even without the extra added cut, their probably not making out so well this year.
00:47:56
So it's gonna be, you know, as Tim said, you make you either make less money or you make no money because there's either gonna make less money for buying a season or no money when there's no season.
00:48:06
So there's two sides of it and hope.
00:48:08
I'm really hopeful that they can come to an agreement as soon as this week and they could figure it out and tensions will ease and the ownership will think about the long term.
00:48:17
Tim pointed out.
00:48:18
The C B A ends after 2021.
00:48:20
You gotta be thinking long term here.
00:48:22
You got to be playing a long game because if you're gonna **** them off, if you're gonna **** the players off right before the season before the CB expires, I mean, you're talking about not having a 2020 season, you might not have a 2022 season, 2023 season.
00:48:36
It's gonna get real complicated.
00:48:38
I mean, it was already gonna be complicated heading into 2022 in 2023 because that CB expired at the end of next season.
00:48:45
But it's again.
00:48:47
It's it's really precarious spot.
00:48:48
And there's so many avenues that lead them down.
00:48:52
The wrong path of doing something really stupid that destroys the game, destroys the credibility and destroys everything that they have really worked for over the past 25 years or so since the last strike.
00:49:02
I mean, they went through so many years, I think it was like 88 work stoppages between 70 some odd and 94.
00:49:11
And we've gone this long without a work stoppage except for 9 11 And now Ah, a major global pandemic here.
00:49:21
You can't let money be worse than Cove.
00:49:25
It, uh, that's I guess I don't know. That's quotable.
00:49:28
Quotes. Quotable.
00:49:29
Run it.
00:49:30
I'll wait.
00:49:31
Um, there was one part.
00:49:34
I mean, we're at a point right now.
00:49:36
Where, and we're gonna get Teoh Dodger Stadium stuff in a second.
00:49:39
We want to be happy. We want toe.
00:49:41
We'll end on a happy note for and on a happier now and yeah, as news as.
00:49:46
And if news develops this week, we will come back on.
00:49:49
Live alone will be another podcast this week.
00:49:52
But what's really troubling to me and I feel strongly that that's ah quality word to use here.
00:50:02
Brooke, I know you saw Mark the sheriff's stupid comments, and I know you saw Ah, I want to be human So bad Alex Rodriguez and his dumb comments where you Alex would hit the nail on the head talking about the Sherif's comments, being just so stupid to share the Sherra.
00:50:19
Keep in mind that you'd made a crap ton of money over his career and is no longer playing baseball, so he doesn't have to face this actual situation that he's in.
00:50:26
He said he would rather make pennies on the dollar and give hope to people 100,000%.
00:50:30
Bull****.
00:50:31
I've had a bull**** button on here.
00:50:32
I would click it so many times and so hard you are a dirty phony and apparently it runs in the Yankees family, even though we already knew a Rod's pretty much of phony, but Alex Rodriguez continues to prove.
00:50:45
Like I said, he just doesn't understand how flash humans work.
00:50:48
Ah, he tried to be inspirational by completely avoiding looking at the camera in some awkward way, but he fell flat right on this stupid face.
00:50:57
Um, you know, he's talking about like like, you need this.
00:51:02
The players need this.
00:51:03
Everybody has come together and again.
00:51:04
It's the same sort of thing where ah, you're doing this for for the people.
00:51:09
You're doing this for America, For the community.
00:51:11
Now.
00:51:12
You're trying too hard here, Chief.
00:51:13
You don't care.
00:51:14
Ah, I like Dallas braiding, man.
00:51:16
This is a three for for anybody related to all the barstool.
00:51:19
All the bar still right? Hey, those dudes, you got to see that? Like there's some ladies podcasts and these ladies make, like, 75 grand a year plus 2500 episode.
00:51:29
We got to get renegotiating here anyway.
00:51:32
Dallas rating.
00:51:33
Crushing it.
00:51:34
Dallas brains has taken for me.
00:51:36
Oh, this is I think it's supposed to be him, you know, Air quoting like he's being a rod Here.
00:51:42
Take it from a I have always had the players Union MLB's best interest in mind If it seems like I'm pulling up the ladder behind me, looking down at you, asking you to take one for the team.
00:51:49
Well, that's kind of what it is. Sorry.
00:51:52
And, um, I mean, it was a rod.
00:51:55
Made what? Like over over five.
00:51:58
Like how I'm doing it.
00:51:59
Maybe even know, like, half a $1,000,000,000 throughout the course of his career.
00:52:02
Not to mention the fact that he cheated for a large majority of that career.
00:52:06
And now he's with J.
00:52:07
Lo.
00:52:08
It's like you don't get to talk about that.
00:52:09
You don't get any sand this at all.
00:52:11
If you're still playing.
00:52:12
Sure say sissy thing is his lane.
00:52:16
But stand your lane.
00:52:18
Yeah.
00:52:19
I mean, yeah, absolutely.
00:52:21
I just really wanted toe out that I just really wanted to leave this stuff in because I **** do.
00:52:27
I hate Alex Rodriguez.
00:52:29
Oh, yeah, I think a raw s*** of the universe.
00:52:30
And I think he's the worst baseball player that ever touched the planet.
00:52:33
But, um, beside from that opinion I have about him, I will say completely.
00:52:39
Aside from it, I think it's just a really bad take and I think it's a I really think that if you are not playing baseball that you shouldn't really be ableto have much of a say into it.
00:52:51
Okay, I was listening to the The Pat McAfee Show shots up at Magny.
00:52:55
He's kind of associated with barstool.
00:52:57
Tedious.
00:52:58
And there's another one.
00:52:59
Ah, uh, he was talking about Blake Snell.
00:53:02
And first of all, he's like, First of all, I don't know what the hell of Blake Snell is like.
00:53:06
I important, and someone's like, well, used to be.
00:53:08
And so he's like he's like major league baseball just got the worst dudes representing them like they just have the worst guys like he's like, I understand what Blake Snow saying, Like, I understand that he wants his money and he should get a She's He's like, Man, they got the worst guys that are the loudest ones JD needs to represent the league.
00:53:27
Oh, dude, I mean, if you talk about a guy that you want to represent your team first of all, great representative for the Dodgers, well spoken, knows what to say and when did not say things and I mean it is just probably one of the most well spoken guys that you could ever imagine.
00:53:40
So if you put that dude as the face of major league baseball, you like major league baseball will be in a much better place.
00:53:45
Plus, he's just freakin likable.
00:53:47
I don't know what it's like, very like, and it's got a beard.
00:53:51
It's gonna be a trust.
00:53:52
People with beards, Ricky Bobby Trujillo says.
00:53:55
Which dumb comment? A.
00:53:56
Rod has so many key points for his out.
00:53:59
A Rod Santiago says.
00:54:01
I was starting to be okay with Alex Rodriguez now back then, not liking him.
00:54:05
Yeah, he definitely had, like, evolution after his career, where he became a decent human being, and now they just snap.
00:54:15
Mario, Mario says, I gotta prep my microphone here cause I got to do it in the in the vein of Tommy, Mario says he's taken Lasorda's advice and stay safe.
00:54:25
Stay inside.
00:54:27
I just want to know who went near Lasorda.
00:54:29
That's all I need to know.
00:54:30
Where your mask.
00:54:32
Okay, Tommy, you could just leave me alone.
00:54:34
You guys leave Tommy alone.
00:54:36
He's got a stay at home start for any headphones listeners there.
00:54:40
But it's Tommy, you know, he He really only gets wound up for, like, two things these days, and that's whenever AM 5 70 comes and ask him to do something.
00:54:47
So shout out.
00:54:48
And 5 70 the l A.
00:54:51
Sports something, whatever.
00:54:52
I forget what they're called, but they're nice kids.
00:54:54
Friends of the show, Tina says.
00:54:56
Life's too short to hate anyone.
00:54:58
I agree.
00:54:59
99.
00:55:00
9% of time except for the Astros and Alex Rodriguez.
00:55:03
But moving on, we said we're going to do something ever so slightly happy ever so slightly fun And ah, well, our friend Ah Youtuber John K with a K.
00:55:18
He came out with another one of his drone videos, and I got to say, It's just it's a chef's kiss.
00:55:23
So Brooke and I hear we're gonna watch this video here.
00:55:26
And Gary feel free to toe, uh, go along with us.
00:55:30
But there's Maurer of the renovation view of what's going on another stadium, the plaza, and you know, it just it looks it looks great, but what was your first take away from? Ah, from looking at these visuals? Brooke, um, sadness.
00:55:47
E it just so it's It's about as close to being done as you could have imagined at this point.
00:55:57
And so when you're looking at it, you're like, Oh, man, it it looks great like it's it's awesome, like the grasses in the outfield walls up the home run seats were ready, and then you're looking at it and you're like, Oh, I'm not gonna get to be there this year and it may be really, really sad.
00:56:13
It was like, I'm not gonna be able to see it till 2021 that's just a hope That's not even a guarantee at this point.
00:56:19
So number one very excited.
00:56:23
I think it looks awesome.
00:56:24
I love the new set up with center field being like the main insurance look, and it's, I think they've done a great job with it.
00:56:31
They've obviously had a lot of time to think about it and do what they want with it.
00:56:35
Um, because they didn't have to be ready by opening day.
00:56:37
And I'm excited, you know, I think what we get to go finally go back.
00:56:40
It's gonna be a really great experience, and I think it's gonna be awesome.
00:56:44
But it's just Ah, it just made me so sad when I was looking at it and I was like, I can't be there.
00:56:51
I'm not gonna be able to go in the bullpen bar and drunkenly yell at the opposing Hey, Yeah, And like powered on the glass, get thrown out of the stadium.
00:57:01
And it may be sad that I'm not gonna be able to do that, but I'm trying to be happy about it.
00:57:06
Looks trying to enjoy the positive.
00:57:08
It does look awesome.
00:57:09
It looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun and I can't wait to be back.
00:57:12
Guys, I can't wait S so I like addition.
00:57:15
More so than renovation.
00:57:17
Just Yeah, they change anything crazy.
00:57:19
It's a final peace.
00:57:21
It was the final piece the Dodger Stadium needed because I've talked crap about that area behind, understating for the refined behind the villians.
00:57:29
For the longest time, It's like you have all this beauty.
00:57:31
You have all these great sights and if you want Teoh, especially after the 2014 renovation with bars and the and the other eateries back there behind the pavilion, if you want to get to any of those, you have to walk through this ugly s as fault where you know, you have the smokers then of weirdos doing whatever and it was just And there's ah, chain link fence like this isn't a construction side.
00:58:00
This chain link fence has been here for decades.
00:58:03
It looked terrible.
00:58:05
And now you have, like we saw in the video, you have the Jackie Robinson statues out there.
00:58:10
Last we heard when ah, when the what we were at when were at the stadium of the beginning of March, I think it was.
00:58:18
We heard the Kovac statue was supposed to drop there in the center field plaza in June.
00:58:25
So we don't know if that's still the case.
00:58:26
I really also like you can't have it.
00:58:29
You gotta have a ceremony for it.
00:58:31
You can stand up people.
00:58:32
So I'm sure they have to push that back until fans are think it's they can still do it, though they could still do it like you should be honored like everybody else gets honored with people's sure press there, you know, he he's the Yeah, that deserves it, you know? So I mean, there there may be some press, but one of the things that really like that I don't know.
00:58:53
I'm pretty sure like we look at that video and we were I am.
00:58:58
I say that looks about 95% done outside.
00:59:02
We don't know what it's like in the guts, and that was gonna be the biggest concern.
00:59:06
Still, even if they had kept up the speed, the rate, they were working on it And for opening day, all the things that are going on under it, we don't know if there's those were gonna be ready.
00:59:15
But when Ah, I really like like the dirt walking path area like the sorta it's patio to get to the new concession stands.
00:59:26
I don't know if that's that's going to be like that for when the season the statement is officially complete, or if they are gonna lame or cement or whatever it looks like.
00:59:35
It's gonna be like that, cause for the greater part of the it's up to you might as well we got some more to talk about it.
00:59:42
But you know, you look at that and when that we see it on the screen, you know that the dirt areas there for the concessions like that's that's really cool.
00:59:48
It's something a little bit different.
00:59:50
Kind of gives it that sort of spring training complex veil feel it's gonna be different forever, right? I don't know.
00:59:57
I mean, with with all of eelgrass, do you think they're gonna go grab? Not really talking about big breasts that you're talking about.
01:00:03
Thea you're talking about in the actual, like eating the recession.
01:00:07
Your car? No, that's That's gonna be dirt.
01:00:09
Yeah, it is. That's what we think.
01:00:11
They're putting their gonna put picnic tables on top of it.
01:00:13
Yeah, ok is you Look at everything else.
01:00:16
Like the all of the landscaping.
01:00:18
It looks completed.
01:00:20
The screens air up all the led screens that we're gonna where they're gonna have up, um, What? They had like two full or three full video screens, plus a couple more ribbon boards back there.
01:00:31
It's got to be lit.
01:00:33
So has this great t j booth in the world.
01:00:36
It doesn't end those speakers.
01:00:38
Um, so we're sorry.
01:00:40
Like Norma says, she's sad to see the video again.
01:00:42
We're sorry.
01:00:43
It is Thea Society for sadness.
01:00:45
Well, it's it's it's just something we need.
01:00:47
And we appreciate John K.
01:00:49
I'm pretty sure he's not even supposed to be droning up there, but John John has done a fantastic work droning.
01:00:55
He does a lot of this stuff.
01:00:56
He hits Dodger Stadium.
01:00:57
He's he's hit it all throughout the off season.
01:01:00
He's doing so fi stadium.
01:01:01
He's not part of the extra $500 million so far is trying to get her the Rams trying to get Oh, yeah, poof, poof.
01:01:10
But everything about it looks perfect.
01:01:12
And I think now, like you, said Brooke, the outfield walls air up that that center field kids play areas up and the way it looks or the way um, Justin Turner mistakenly mentioned that he's gonna be going to the stadium this Thursday to kind of like stand in the box and get the batter's eye.
01:01:29
So I think we're going to get in some content out there.
01:01:31
Shut out Eric V.
01:01:33
I'm pretty sure he's about to be producing a video that he gets from players.
01:01:36
Ah, showing up a Dodger Stadium and kind of getting, ah, socially distance tour of of the new grounds.
01:01:42
But if j T saying he's gonna be there, it's because it's done.
01:01:48
Nothing is done.
01:01:49
That might be like I said.
01:01:50
The little odds and ends dot in the tes crossing the eyes, whatever it may be that things done and it looks.
01:01:58
It looks glorious and I want to be there.
01:01:59
And I'm sad that we can't be there because we could all be there together, getting them home run seats, getting really dumb drunk and yelling it at opponents, opponents, center fielders.
01:02:10
And we don't get that this year, and that's that's sad.
01:02:13
But if we do get baseball, ah, at least we get something and kicked out of the stadium next year. So excited.
01:02:22
There's another new title.
01:02:24
One of the final things I had, I'll kinda have.
01:02:26
This is my final thought in a way.
01:02:28
Ah, if you guys, unless you guys have anything else you want to add to it, sir, I don't thought will pull a few comments and then we'll go ahead and ah, uh, make way to the taco.
01:02:37
Stand on another thing to be sad about.
01:02:39
But there was a comment in a Facebook group about about the Dodger Stadium.
01:02:43
Ah, renovations.
01:02:44
And it said, Mr Zadie, it's out there, but I like it.
01:02:49
Sell seats at a discount, send them our photo, and they put a cardboard cutout in, like in the seats in your seats.
01:02:56
And then, you know, between plays or pitches or whatever, the cameras will scan the crowd.
01:03:01
Like just do it for fun. Question, Mark.
01:03:03
So how much would you pay to have your head? Ah, just a Xerox copy of your head plastered on a seat on the top deck. Brooke.
01:03:13
All right. I'd be, like, 200 bucks for that.
01:03:16
We're about to have responded there permanently.
01:03:18
It's each game over the match, I mean Oh, you mean like, per game? Yeah.
01:03:23
Not very much less than what I would pay for a normal top tech ticket.
01:03:27
I I said $1.
01:03:29
And then I said, You know, let's go.
01:03:30
Throwback prices will do $6 for top deck, $6 with civilian, and ah, and that we're good.
01:03:36
I don't remember any of the prices.
01:03:38
I just remember those But them.
01:03:41
Yeah, you know, it just Ah, apparently, I think I think we're I think we're being grainy guys that people are saying that we have 2005 graphics right now.
01:03:50
Um, I think I I think they were talking about the the people being posted in the stands.
01:03:59
Oh yeah, down the zero about the same thing.
01:04:02
It's about the same thing.
01:04:04
Lesley Taylor points out that it's like the K b o T u K B o has, like the They have the cardboard cutouts, but they also have, like, the blow up dolls.
01:04:12
Very, very strange.
01:04:14
I mean, just down with a car.
01:04:16
I got one other final thought that on that, but let's let's take a couple more.
01:04:22
Ah, a couple more comments here.
01:04:24
At least a $1000 behind.
01:04:26
Hopefully who house bucks? I think Lincoln met.
01:04:29
Like to stay behind.
01:04:31
Hopefully is a per game.
01:04:33
Are you asking per game, Clint or the per? Yeah, I'm saying for gamergate per game like $1 to get your stupid face plastered back there. I think that's fine.
01:04:44
Dollar visit Could have me looking at Mary Hart behind home plate.
01:04:49
Get the very heart of their ways up with Mary Hart with very hard Are you married? Wrong Shot out the Judy we left, but you stuck.
01:04:59
I'm just messenger Gary.
01:05:01
Tha This is the last episode Gary murdered.
01:05:08
But my second final thought here my final final thought I was at Ah Dodger game a long time ago in times of your BC is we call it before Corona.
01:05:19
And, um, it was it wasn't that long after the time where fans through ah, inflatable cork on the field for for Sammy Sosa after he got **** Kat corking his bat.
01:05:30
But it's somebody brought an inflatable like doll like a dirty, special Happy Time doll and they were hitting it around like a beach ball.
01:05:41
So good.
01:05:42
That was just glorious sight people at Dodger Stadium.
01:05:46
It wasn't a 99 cent store beach ball.
01:05:48
Remember it? I remember being passed down anyways.
01:05:54
Guys, um, I think that's about it.
01:05:57
