Yo yo, yo, what's up with some puts up? Wake up call with Avery Sports show.
We're back on the air.
How you doing today, Hosie? Friday.
Going or your Saturday or Sunday, depending on foot, part of the world you are and hope you're doing well.
Ah, week has come to an end.
We're back at it again on SportsCastr Live from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
And oh, you know what? I I got to go talk about baseball on what's been going on.
I made a video on YouTube about it, but unwritten rule suck.
The unwritten rules in baseball absolutely suck.
If you haven't already saw here near it already.
See it on the big issue.
Waas on the San Diego Padres Standard.
Tatty said a grand slab in a game late against Texas when they're up seven runs, causing furor from the Rangers dugout.
Magic Chris Woodward for saying that he should have laid off a pitch on its Rio Count Lee in that ballgame and is Melon.
Singler said as much, and he ignored, assigned to not swing on it.
30 pitch, and it resulted in the Rangers throwing behind my Machado, Annette the next at bat.
Let me see this throwing in somebody for bring in some form or another player when that teammate beforehand is still trying to play.
The game is so stupid in baseball culture, and so is this.
Don't run to score too much, or you might hurt my feelings or you might offend the other team.
These are pro athletes.
Why are the feelings being hurt over scoring runs when your job, if all that.
And if you're you're you're Fernando taxis, I hate you, apologized.
There is no reason for Fernando to be apologizing.
He should be encouraged but everybody to keep doing it, Staying as one of the most exciting on short stocks in baseball.
That's gonna help him in a long run.
When he hit that home run when you hit that grand slam and put himself on top of MLB's leaderboard for home runs in this shortened season with 11 there shouldn't be any baseball wonders.
Why have trouble growing? Baseball wonders why it has trouble grabbing onto the youth end of continent.
We got managers talking about curtailing a player trying to do his best, and guess what a seven run game is not game over.
Get teams have come back from that before and one ball game from where a word happened.
What happened? Oh yeah, Yesterday the Blue Jays came back from being down.
Nothing against Philadelphia to win the ballgame.
Errors are made, leads can evaporate.
Just like got in professional baseball.
So don't tell me about no code about honoring a broken system that goes back to the 18.
Whatever's stupid, let the kids play as MLB's own marketing campaign talks about on Dalit, girls joined us. Welcome.
I see. It's just so dumb idea.
Baseball still holding onto your cake values of Oh, don't offend this guy.
Don't offend that guy.
Don't celebrate too much.
Don't pump your fist too much.
Run the bases too fast.
Don't run them too slow after hitting a home run, I don't see it.
If I don't say that, you want to catch up to basketball, baseball, football, soccer, hockey, whatever sport in the world that slapping MLB where you go when it comes to coat.
Well, there you go.
Don't Okay, Well, hockey is the way she even not hockey, but definitely being locked by football and baseball.
When it comes to the culture accepting change and sort and so forth, baseball is trailing, baseball is still lagging behind, and that kind of disdain for you were on it.
And the kind of game for personality just hurts the game.
Even Mawr, when you're going out there trying to that next generation involved in plain baseball, when you're seeing numbers in participation dropping when you see numbers for him, people watching baseball, dropping even more, especially money.
Black community in America if you look at baseball numbers.
Years ago, you had so many prominent black major leaguers in the game, the game and so money.
Black faces 15 2025 years ago, and those numbers are dropping dramatically in 2020 dramatically.
So we got beef ball people trying to curtail ways to grow trying to, um, Bash are trying through our young stars under the bus.
I hate it with a fiery passion and bringing 1000 suns.
We need to be encouraging it as much as possible.
We really need Teoh so of my dieter.
You've got thoughts on that.
Please come in below.
Tweet me at Avery at a v R Y.
If you don't if you don't agree with me, I love that your argument as to why you wouldn't agree with my take on why we need to get past this dog idea of unwritten rules in baseball.
I think those Jeff Jeff Passan made a great point on ESPN, saying, Where the reason why unwritten rules stand written? Because if you rolled them down, you would see how stupid they truly are.
I could see bury myself in that I could not see better than that.
From what Jeff Passan said, It's this Ah, hey, you would ending of to with top teething the Grand Slam and then in GMO throwing behind are throwing at Machado.
This wouldn't be tolerated Any other sports.
You can't in a Pa Ki you have a plan, score the goal and celebrates.
You can't go on cross.
Check him in the face afterwards or his team that you can't do that.
You would get a massive suspension for doing such nonsense.
But baseball Oh rules basketball, some of dunks.
You can go and blow out.
You can't go that, said player and punched in the face for dunking late again.
That would involve on entail you getting a lengthy suspension for doing that.
Soccer someone scores.
You can't to foot title after a goal for scoring on you football, someone goes and touch out past late there in the end zone, dancing.
You cannot go full blown NFL blitz on them and pile driving to the turf for celebrating the end zone Wouldn't happen.
We don't know I happened more than you know what happened. Football.
You might catch a sole charge for doing kind of that kind of crap.
I mean, that culture Bayfield God change.
It has to one way or another if you want to keep the next generation someone involved in enjoying this game, cigars and what that did my morning diatribe on stupidity.
I really? And truly, anyways, we're gonna move on to basketball and a topic that really should have been dead in the water the minute it happened.
Well, more body cam footage came out of from the A Media Sheriff's Department, where I remember last year at the semifinals, and Oak and, um, OK, see Oakland Messiah Jury, the President of the Toronto Raptors, was shoved by a officer when he trying it onto the floor.
After I wrapped with one game, six footage came out.
And remember, the officer claimed that Messiah jury hit him with both hands, was the aggressor in trying it onto the court, and he sued Massai.
Now more footage came.
We all knew that a bunch of BS we all knew that was false.
Real new witnesses is proving this.
It happened in on Arena, full of thousands of people who said that didn't happen.
This copy, full of crap charges will still win a hand, and lawsuits still proceeded should never happened.
Now body count footed showed Messiah jury walking down to where you get onto the court to join your team for the the ceremony to take their your Brian trophy from Adam Silver Messiah Jury was walking onto the court calmly, politely, which was reaching into his pocket to grab his credential.
I've I've done before.
Many of us who work in team operations or work in the media like myself if we're not always really be, always be wearing our potential honor on the neck so of us may keep our credential in our jacket pocket or in somewhere that is secure.
We know what the working we know.
What? We're not gonna lose our credentials if we're far past in our pocket inside.
When we lose that, calm down.
Yes, I was doing just that.
He pulled out and before can fully pollen credential he shoved.
And the cop Tell them back f up.
What? Okay, Masai gold again.
But I'm Why you pushing me? Why would you push me pull out again? Pushed again at this point, like and you and being in the world what we act and this point, you're not human If you're not thinking to yourself what the hell I'm excited pushes back at this point if you're interesting to think, okay, Self defense.
I'm not gonna tolerate being pushed The only ones, but twice literally unprovoked attack.
Well, you know it is, you know, it really is.
You know this waas someone truck.
You know, this was troubling.
Trying to see able a black man coming down here.
I'm putting back in place, You know, this was a great of them through and through and truly Waas What? The Sheriff's department have the audacity The nerve after the footage comes out.
The officers story about being injured and full and there's fractured that, you know, proved them shop.
The fact that the sheriff's department, if continuing what did case when we saw through all that crap? We know it wasn't hurt.
We know assault on Masai is pathetic.
You try to tell us that we're blind.
This black man was the aggressor, even though all the footage shows that that is a big time lie.
Oh, Racism works in funny ways, doesn't it? It truly does.
I'm glad that the Raptors are counter suing.
I am so glad I got to take them for all the way there work.
Because all the footage only witnesses.
How are you gonna lose? How are they going to lose? It's nonsense, it really is.
And Leo Raton's Who does color commentary for the Raptors? He said on Twitter and on TSN up here on Canadian television that he took to save you and down stay with us.
I and no one asked him for credential.
See him for credential.
Which security people when you're on the floor are supposed to ask you for a credential or to show it or to prove in some way that you are who you say you are and you're on the floor for a reason.
After that, no one asked me around that, you know, in Oakland And he I feel some child got Devo Junior and Coop before joining us.
And Leo rotten, plentiful, put it into fat.
He said No one happy for my credential And they assaulted a team president.
When the more important men in the building in the N B A.
Why? Because I am white.
This is why we, Neil.
This is why black lives matter.
They're around, hit the nail on the head and right there in a short little video and short little speech on TSN.
And you cannot question that.
And the people were trying to question and oh, why you creating more reason the way creating more division while you saying that it up.
Keep your head stuck under all that sand.
Keep your head in your ignorance.
I don't want to hear it. I don't want to see it.
You can stay in that quarter right there and not accept the truth that's on you.
The rest of us will progress and move on and hope that pray that this case is over quickly.
Because guess what? When all the facts out in the open this department lied and Masai is in the right.
Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.
That's all I can say about that.
It is a bunch of nonsense.
And for those of you are saying, Oh, I can't believe what is happy in 2020.
Really? You can't believe it if it shocks you.
If you're surprised by it, then you have not been paying attention towards going on around us in sports and in the world.
You just are not paying attention and bear to Jerry.
Join us as well. Welcome.
While Brolin again, though, you would join a chat.
I hope you're having a good Friday or a good Saturday night or evening.
I don't know where everybody is in the world.
You could be in America.
You could be in Canada, You could be in Europe.
You could be in Australia.
You could be in Fiji, Taiwan or Micronesia for all I know you never know where people are in the world and nothing issues some playoff talk In the world of hockey, we saw a syriza end last night be Dallas stars.
Knocked out the contrary Flames, then six games.
And, wow, if you're a Flames fan tonight, have to hurt tonight.
Truly, at will today truly have to hurt in a given which you were up free nothing and allowed a seven unanswered goals.
Seven unanswered goals, becoming the first team in playoff history to in the same game.
Be up three goals and be down four goals.
Oh, my goodness.
Gabrielle had a heck of a night scoring four goals for the Dallas Stars with one of the youngest player in league history to have a four goal night in the postseason, and I just saw a perfect hungry.
They couldn't get a save from Cam Talbot or Dave Bridge when it mattered, and it tumbled down hard in Game six and Ellen Siris, of which Calgary, If the bounces go won the right way for Calorie, there have been up in the series three games to one.
Instead, they couldn't put away the Flames, and now Dallas moves on and that the team which Dallas is a team, what we leave the franchise, you've got the leadership of guys like Jamie Benn lie Joe Pavelski and then on the back end you still have.
And then for the young core you.
So guys like death carry out.
You should have a time.
***an playing well, You got Anton Khudobin, who has come in for Ben Bishop and played wonderfully in the postseason.
Anton Khudobin have been a heck of a reminder for Stars against Calgary in the series, and I wondered now how things go if when the bishop can play again.
Do you think what you going condo been in the next round or do you go back to Bishop will be interesting.
But from my point of view, from my end, stick with the hot in my my end of this stick with the hot netminder.
Stick with the guy who have been rolling for you.
And if you're Dallas, that's it.
And tuck it open and board more proper.
My and I love seeing the short goaltenders put in work.
I love being short goalies.
Get there, do it's ah in the hockey world We don't think you're going anymore.
We really do not feed short netminders.
Getting any run in the NHL.
I remember growing up used to have the occasional goalie who was 595 10 even on 58 Netminder, that's really rare.
Now I've seen it and Shell these days, a goalie that's really under 6 ft one would've starting job anthem Beethoven's 5 11 And he has been making timely say for Dallas and keeping them in games and make you sure that they can get some wins.
So now we're looking at the Stars facing either.
Let's go the bracket for a second here.
I know that I'll be a You know what? I'll be a fun matchup for who are doll faces going into round number two, which really, really is right. Number three.
We all know this is never run.
Yeah, it's gonna be Dallas.
You know, either Dallas or ST Louis or Dallas in Vancouver will be a fun three to watch.
I'm pulling for Dallas Vancouver in that series.
I think the Vancouver young guns will make that a fund three against that doll Stars veteran corps in the Western Conference But also, I think, in the NHL postseason, I think I'm gonna get banned from D.
Because two years in a row now, I have publicly said of the Washington Capitals.
Would lose in the first round.
I sent you lose to Carolina Hurricanes.
And this year I called the capital losing to the Ahlers.
And guess what happens.
The new calendars finish off the Washington Capitals in the first round.
I have be doomed.
They force here for Washington hockey chapels fans.
It's a gift that I have.
I just call it like I see it and him back to back seasons.
I have been correct in the predictions of the capital's not getting out of the first round.
Easy, I It's a curse.
It's a talent all in the same stroke of a pen.
What can I say? Gun Africana? Capital demise.
And also I last found point.
I do want to mention that on MBA postseason.
The Lakers title, their Syrian against the Portland Trail Blazers at one game apiece, and David Lillard also have a index finger dislocation if Dame Dame game infected in any way by this injury.
Oh, boy, that puts a major dent into the idea off Portland knocking off the Lakers.
I hope it doesn't affect him too much, because Dame time against the Lakers will definitely be fun.
I still have this series going to a seven games.
I still think that Portland L.
If Daine could get through a finger injury will be a seven game series.
If not, you get ugly real quick anyways.
Um, Avery, I am out of here.
We'll talk to you guys again on Monday morning.
Enjoy the weekend.
