come to another SS supplies.
We're gonna be talking MLB An MBA right here today.
Must have Shawn's dismay.
He does not like the MLB as much as I do, but tough luck, Sean.
But how How are you doing? I know you're a little bit annoyed.
I'm a little bit annoyed.
Um, but that's off camera stuff right now.
Right now I'm feeling I'm feeling good.
I'll manage, Manage.
Actually work today.
Album just dropped. I quit. I quit.
Let's not talk about that.
He said you know what? Hey, I I got I gotta focus on this today.
So, anyway, last night, Game one of the MBA Finals, the Lakers went to face the the Miami Heat in Game one, the N B A finals.
Last night, the Lakers really quickly The Lakers went down 25 18 the first quarter, and they went on to big runs in the first half, which really opened the game open 25 18 in the first half, first quarter.
Then they're going to 13 and three run and the quarter down three in the second quarter, going 25.
End the half to go up 17 like one by 18.
What's your biggest take away from game one? Dragic Bam! Andrew Mueller all got hurt, Dragic.
So it has to be the most of the beer is dealing with that plan.
Turn fast yet whatever, Um, two or something? Basically, Um yeah.
So you know how you and me we're talking about how deep the heat were, right? Yeah.
Now that they have these three guys potentially out for at least game to potentially, judging for sure.
Geologic, for sure.
Jimmy, continue to play.
Jimmy came back in, and Yeah, but after the adrenaline wears off, we'll see exactly how good their feeling is, What I'm trying to say.
And you know what? Their their depth is gonna have toe have toe, carry him.
You know, um, these guys definitely could be 100%.
But then there's still you're missing Goran Dragic, who has shown throughout the playoffs that he could drop 30 points.
Um, when? When he's needed to.
So we've got basically a situation.
We've got the David versus Goliath, and, um, I'm willing to bet that most of you out there who are watching or listening to this.
Know that, David One that that battle with a stone to the forehead of Goliath.
But in this in this certain case, right here, I think I think the life is gonna win this game.
The Lakers just have too much, Uh, too much talent and combined with the depth.
And, you know, Anthony Davis.
LeBron Almost a triple double.
He had, what, nine assists instead of 10.
So just an outstanding game.
And once again, you see that the point guard, essentially for this lineup, LeBron James is their leading rebounder.
So you've got LeBron, who's the leading rebounder at the point guard.
Then you've got to basically centers in the lineup at once, and either Dwight Howard and Jim or JaVale McGee and then Anthony Davis.
So I think they're gonna outrebounding, especially if band Mrs Time Or is it 100%? Um, keep in mind band lot of bottles only like 6 10 I think.
And, well, he's not necessarily tiny for his size.
Um, he's smaller compared to guys like Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard, And so, um, they're gonna need all the help they can get and and we'll see.
We'll see if they can hit clutch shots or if the reps and bailing out a little bit.
But I'm still sticking to my my, um he can give him a run, but, uh, game to goes the same ways.
I think I'm gonna have to back down on that and just admit that I was wrong, Okay? Uh huh.
Biggest take away from Game one is the Lakers matchup.
I thought the Lakers matched up well with the heat, but I think it was toe this severity and Miami is in trouble.
If you double team LeBron the post, you have You got to pick your poison.
You double team LeBron the post.
You're leaving the shooters wide open.
And when Danny Green, Kyle Kuzma kcp uh, Alex Caruso I said Cruz show.
I know, Uh, that's that was intentional.
Um, knocked out there, they got a D LeBron bow shooting 50% from three point range.
It is a nightmare for this language.
And then if you decide to single coverage not double team LeBron or 80 in the post, then they're just gonna bully ball you because there's nobody on that team that could guard a deeper Who gave it? Bam couldn't guard a D before the shoulder he could not handle.
Uh, he could not personally handle if the Davis throughout the game.
So with that being said, the series is over, I think a boy in the city over geologic is hurt plenty fast.
I'm not gonna be disrespectful yet.
It's a five, but the heat do not stand a chance in this series.
We'll be six games at the very most l A.
They're just the better team.
And it's like a lot.
It was very noticeable in Game one.
Coach ball is that good of a coach? Coach? Make adjustments and he'll give us team or want a chance.
22 games, at the very least.
But the series is over.
I'm sorry, but jeez, these guys um yeah.
No, it was It was a great showing by LeBron and and Anthony Davis.
And you know what? The heat just couldn't keep up with him.
Um, everybody, except for Markieff, Morris actually was.
Oh, and And Dwight Howard was in a plus minus in the positive range and Dwight Howard out of minus two, and Morris had a minus one.
Um, Anthony Davis was a plus 23 when he was on the floor, and that's your shows up.
How big matchup problems are.
You have Jae Crowder, who's like +6869 and then Auto Bio is probably 6 10 and some odd half inch or whatever, and they just can't match up with Anthony Davis in the length.
I mean, you saw a few times last game where he would, you know, get a pass, Um, lay it in, would roll out, get the rebound himself and then put it back in.
And I mean that That's just the dominant showing by Anthony Davis.
And you know what? If game to goes the same way as Game one did.
I can say the Lakers might even sweep the heat, Um, which is honestly showing how good the Lakers are, because throughout this whole playoffs, throughout the whole playoffs, it's not like they're playing a slouch of a team.
Unless you say that the Bucks and the Celtics are also slouches of teams and and not a real teams.
Um, we were I'm not gonna bring that up yet, but you know there are certain players who have harder roads to the finals and easier finals match ups or harder finals match ups and easier roads to the finals.
And and I think LeBron's had, ah make sure of both being in the East, he had some extremely hard matchups against the Super team warriors.
Um, he even even, um when When he played Dallas.
Dallas wasn't a great team, but he it was basically LeBron versus Dallas.
Um and, um, when they lost the Dallas, it was the weighed against Dallas LeBron.
Yeah, you're right.
Um, when he was on the cap, Maybe that was the thunder.
You talk about the Spurs? Just talk about the Spurs serious when he was in Cleveland the first time.
Um, so you know what? Uh, sorry.
Sorry to catch off.
See, I'm not like some people who renamed who will remain nameless at the time.
It will Bron place craft.
I'm gonna be the loudest one If he If he plays like a freaking animal like he did in game five against the Nuggets, that will be the loudest one c I'm gonna be I'm a cheeriest loud for you, but I'm going beyond you as much as Well, so yeah. Yeah.
Dallas, They lost because of LeBron.
So I'm not like some people you know I'm talking about.
Um, I I certainly do, but just just going on, I mean, the heat or no slaps of the team.
They beat the Celtics pretty handily.
Honestly, in five games, Um, even though the point differential was so close, they beat the Bucks, who were pretty much everyone's favorites.
Once they everybody realized that the six years were just not good.
Um, at least not on the level of a contender in either conference.
So I mean, all that being said, I think the heat still have a shot.
Maybe not a shot to win it, but it's shot to make it as hard as possible and really make the Lakers and LeBron and Anthony Davis feel every point and need every point that they score.
Although I think it's gonna be an earned a championship.
Let's transition into some MLB action.
Though We had a big day yesterday, were just skipping the other MBA topics.
Perfect way had a big day yesterday and the way this is why I would ever be in charge of the great pitching duel.
If water with We're talking about baseball, the entire show, not the entire show. E.
I might talk a little bit about baseball in, like, January.
Free agents, maybe, but right when nobody gives a crap about baseball, you're gonna be sorry.
Hey, what I'm saying, all I'm saying is when Trevor Bauer gets his next contract, I'm gonna be talking about it here on as age because he is.
If he doesn't win the Cy Young, I don't know who will for the National League.
First of all, second of all, he pitched a gym yesterday against the Braves, believe seven and two thirds of to hit 12 strikeout baseball, No runs allowed.
And it was basically a game of the bullpens after that.
And Freddie Freeman walked it off with an R B I single.
The center field in crap, I think, was the 14th inning.
The bottom of the 14th Sean Reds had chances to score.
They didn't, um, they didn't convert and the Braves hung with him pitching wise until they got a good shot.
Um, um, in the later innings, did the Reds lose that game? Or did the Braves win that game? I know you.
You were You were really involved in it, too.
Way were, we were talking back and forth.
It was, it was Sean might be a Reds fan.
Once the Dodgers get eliminated, that's always say no.
No, And the Dodgers would definitely outlast the red speaking with because the Dodgers are playing the freaking Brewers.
The Reds are playing the Braves.
The Braves were the Braves air.
The Braves are a better team than might be our first pick.
The Braves to lose that seriously.
Appreciate you because I'm a Reds fan.
My picks are definitely gonna get a lot less biased once the Reds get eliminated.
Probably in like the World Series or something.
Um, anyways, um, go ahead, John.
Well, what you're saying, Um, the Reds lost this game multiple opportunities to score runs and the Reds manager just looked like he did have faith in this guy.
I think, for example, when who had Who is the single? I think Casciato was trying to go from second to third and it just looked like the Reds had no trust in their bats to string a couple of hits.
Together, they did that in a person ing with a cut with a leadoff.
I think it was a double, I guess.
Or maybe there's not a single.
Yeah, when the runners are third, each stranded the runner on third with three straight outs and then in the seventh inning, right? Your strength.
I mean, you have a couple brothers, basically, you get nothing.
Um, what anyone we like said Bases loaded, moves up to bet and he strikes out, right? Regal.
Which ending that was The Reds had multiple opportunities.
And where that game and say they lose tonight are today in an hour, Um, that you're gonna point to Game one and say we issued at least be guarded to the game through.
Got Sonny great.
With arguably our second best picture on this on the rotation, and we'll take our chances where today is a do or die game for The restaurant definitely lost the game yesterday, but kudos bar pitch on Trevor Bar pitch of incredible game yesterday.
He's going to get that Jalen Ramsey type bank.
He's going to show up in a Brinks truck to spring training next year.
I mean well, that that man, like a 173 e r A.
During the regular season, that's absolutely amazing and and talk about great pitching as well.
Why bring whatever pitched a great game yesterday? Well, now they strike out.
But he pitched a great game and and also talking about great pitching.
Um, Sean, what happened to Shane Bieber? The Yankees just too good.
E mean, Shane Bieber won the pitching Triple crown.
Something that hasn't happened since, I think.
04 And Major league baseball? Um, yeah.
What was he? It he seems to be the de facto Cy Young, Basically, is what I'm trying to say for the American League.
But the Yankees just knocked them all around the park.
And then they won, um, yesterday and swept the Siri's.
Um what? What What do you have? What are your opinions on Shane Bieber? Well, that's why when the Yankees were playing particularly hot, I wasn't I wasn't nervous.
That was a very panicking on my crazy depict, which was Yankees and Dodgers in the World Series, because the Yankees are that talented and unless you're the Clippers, right talent.
Its first of the baseball I've seen most of the time. *******. Talent.
Well, you can win off of talent sometimes.
And the Yankees, when they were playing particularly well, I was like, You know what? Don't not panic.
You got Garrett Cole, an elite pitcher, ace pitcher in major league baseball.
Right now, you got one of the best starting.
You have one of the best, uh, batting line ups right now.
You have Carlos stated.
Eric Judge Laboratories, D J.
There is just batters at the battle of the battle of battles that are starting lineup.
Well, I was not concerned about the Yankees that raised the Yankee Siri's order.
Well, Snell Glass mo Charlie Morton versus those Those headers are the kids. Don't wait.
Is it normally best of five from the D.
S? Uh, yeah, it Z usually just one game for the wild card and best of five until the championship.
Siri's where it's best of seven in the World Series.
But of course, that changed this year with the expanded playoffs.
Now it's best of three in the wild card, so I mean, yeah, just great performance by the Yankees, especially the bat's coming down from late Geo or Shelagh hitting that Grand Slam game really quickly.
You just say to your mostly right raise the Yankees.
You got right. Eight.
They play tonight or, yeah, game three cups of tea Tree Cubs are down.
One Reds or down one Padres about one.
Well, you know, I did also say I'm really, really rooting for the Marlins.
They have never lost a playoff.
Siri's in their history and their team history.
Granted, they've only been toe like one playoffs in their team history.
And they won the World Series that year.
And and I think, 03 But yes, that is my That's my bracket, um, that I filled in.
So we'll see where it goes.
I'm hoping to see the Reds right in this vicinity, right? Their wrong game three tonight.
So so far, you only got three, right? So you just texted the group chat.
Mostly, right? Yeah, that's cute.
You said mostly right? Mostly mostly.
You mean mostly wrong, Gabby.
The ones that are finalized because It's only been three fight alive.
No, but I'm really I'm really happy for this.
Um, you know, that may be because the Reds air finally in it since 24.
Um, man, those were those were as a sports fan like 2010 through 2014 were my golden years.
You saw Aaron Rodgers when two m v p.
M v p of your Packers fan and M V P in the Super Bowl did that.
And then the next topic today and then the Reds winning all those in Votto winning the M v p.
And in 2010 and then the playoff first and a man, because you are read to the Packers fan.
So, of course, those were golden years.
Neither teams have gotten back toe any level of success.
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
Hold on your heart.
When was the last time the charges runs through? Well, I'm sorry the Chargers are not in this conversation right now.
Next topic that I'll go ahead, John.
All right, we'll go back to baseball a little bit there, breaking it up throughout the show to keep morning.
Happy? Um so the clippers, obviously just fired are relieved Dock with active duties.
That sounds like that.
Sounds like like you relieve yourself when you like, have to go to the bathroom after a while.
I was like, right.
Like, I need to go relieve myself over in the porta potty like thing s So you're just you're just taking a crap in.
Doc Rivers came out.
He's not that bad.
E think that's kind of disrespectful the way that right, Like I hate the world like we have mutually parted ways like there is no such thing as a mutual like like tell me one person is always less likely to part ways if they had the choice, right? Like maybe Kenny Jackett's even that I don't believe that.
Name one coach the went to the partner office.
I was like, You know what? I think it's time we part ways it's the owner of the general manager says, Wait, don't think you're the right fit here, Andi, Even if the coach were to go out there and say that that that general manager of that owner right there is like he's never going to say you know what? I was thinking? The same thing.
You just have to get the same thing.
I think you're right.
I think it just popped into my mind the second before you walked into my office.
Yeah, Let's stop it.
No, that that never happened.
So just say fired.
Anyway, Warner, but are we holding CO I Leonard accountable? We're holding them responsible or accountable enough for Doc Rivers being fired.
I mean, I person when I am, I don't I don't really know what the, uh, general media general world's opinion on this is.
I know I'm holding him accountable.
I think if he, him and Paul George would have played better, then Doc Rivers would not be in the situation of being relieved of his duties.
I mean Oh, my gosh, That just sounds like you're taking it.
Just taking a coil.
So if quien Paul George played anywhere near there, all n b a, uh, caliber Selves, then Doc Rivers definitely would not be fired.
I mean, we might see the Clippers in the finals right now against against the heat.
We might We might we might.
We might, um and and honestly see, Here's the thing.
You didn't trade all of your picks Danilo Gallinari and and other players for Doc Rivers.
You trained them for Paul.
George, you gave CO.
I'll enter the max contract.
You didn't give that 200 some odd million dollars to Doc Rivers, and and it's not guaranteed to him.
And so, you know, basically, you can't release the players because they played poorly.
You can really on Lee do.
You can either get rid of the coach, get rid of some kind of a staffer or get rid of the surrounding core.
But when you're the Clippers, you have so much money tied up into two players you want to keep your surrounding cores best you can, because if you have him on the contracts they're on right now, you don't have to sign him back for more than there, then, um, or further market value if you have them on the cheaper right now.
And I think that's that's the big thing.
Um, teams have a lot more leverage to fire the coach or the G M or something and and almost scapegoat them.
Instead of holding the players responsible in saying, Hey, you know what? You played terribly.
We're gonna dock your pay $5 million or you're playing really, really bad You're fired like you can fire somebody from your job.
But you can't just fire Kawhi Leonard from your basketball team because he's just gonna go to another team and most and and likely either bring them way up or you are just gonna fall away down because you don't have quite Leonard.
Even if he doesn't bring that other team way up, you can still fall because you're losing, uh, in all MBA first teen caliber player.
So I mean, I don't think it was the right thing to do.
I think Doc Rivers may need a little bit more motivation and a little fire to his feet, and I can't wait for next year.
I really hope he goes to Fili and Kili contends for a championship.
Yeah, so I hate to keep referencing Warren, but you're not a good friend.
So if if we were really quickly in Game seven in that conference finals, I mean probably get Denver quality.
Have 14 points six or 22 shooting, two of seven from three get 12 points in the first half, two in the third quarter, none in the fourth quarter.
Do you know how Hey would never let me live it down? If LeBron play like that in a Game seven a 31 31 on a team that had no business being there for being complete, I should have beaten by 31 You blow the lead Game seven.
You will have zero points in the fourth quarter.
You choose six for 22.
War would never let me live it down that he will ridicule LeBron until the end of time.
But what were you saying about Collide? We're using it for a joke.
He has not said anything, Really.
I mean, besides, that night, it's been nothing.
We are using it for jokes.
The media aren't really talking about it now.
Have the Clippers rather quote unquote underperformed.
What What doctor? The head coach.
You could say that with the lob.
City Clippers flew a 31 lead in 2015.
You could say that, but I do want to say Blake Griffin, I don't think has ever been a top five player in the league I think it's safe to say Chris Paul has never been a top five player in the league on while those guys.
Well, those guys have definitely been Top 10 Top 15 guys and DeAndre Jordan as well.
There are no CO I Leonard and Paul George.
Yeah, yeah, totally.
And so my point is, and Golden Sense even see those all.
LeBron is quite better than LeBron because Warren, we judge players off the postseason, not the regular season, because that was the case.
Stephan Curry in 2016.
It's all the great players of all time, and that's the case, Um, James Harden, which is kept using that statement.
You don't judge playing in the postseason.
James starts with the greatest players of all time.
Sorry about that.
But James Harden has his historic regular seasons.
Yes, but you get my point, but I'm just saying that's what Warren said in his argument.
Yanis had a historically great regular season.
LeBron did, um, and I'm sorry, and I said this.
This is the first time in Coney Island's curry shirt, and he failed under that pressure because again, if you don't know what I'm talking about, what pressure to quality have last year.
Yeah, No pressure.
Honestly, if you wanna if you wanna play.
Devil's advocate. Kind of.
He didn't have any pressure with San Antonio either.
When you won that championship, played about expectations and got a finals M v p for right.
You're absolutely right.
Yeah, no pressure.
When he was in San Antonio, either.
And the first time he Israel pressure, he crumbles beneath it.
But we are dead quiet, like it's a church mouse in there.
Okay, this is blasphemous is disrespectful.
Whatever a big word you want to say, it's ridiculous.
Okay, um, we're not holding co pilot a couple again.
I am because it's ridiculous.
And LeBron did this again.
Warren never, ever, ever, ever, ever for ever, ever let me live it down.
And honestly, our LeBron the honest argument debate probably never happens because first off, I wonder what that's not, what you would irritate me.
And secondly, a big part of our argument was you honestly perform in the postseason LeBron has consistently has over the past decade or so.
Besides, Dallas actually take out that Dallas Siri's everything else is pretty much perfect.
Um, and I was a big baseball.
Yeah, the ability to perform all of the playoffs so that I'll be kind of hypocritical if I bring up. Be honest.
So, yeah, we're not holding quality accountable, and it's it's outrageous.
All right, let's get back to people one more, because we're going to stay with the Clippers.
So now ESPN Adrian Jordanovski? Well, actually, no one wanted Before I say that I heard of some good food and feel you heard about that, right? Good food in Philly.
Yeah, but Billy has a good food.
People either think that she stakes the best thing ever invented or hated and think it should not be a food.
Other than that, though, I don't really know much about about Philadelphia, except I don't like the Pirates, but they don't play in Philly.
So that's Yeah, that's that's his money, anyway.
But today's episode is brought to you by restaurant dot com with restaurant dot com.

You get him to shoot 50% from anywhere else other than the repeats and back other than 7 ft away from the rim.
Anyway, we're gonna go speaking Ben Simmons in the Sixers.
Doc Rivers, Per Adrien Brody Janowski Before this break, music to my ears like how quickly, uh, Doc is reportedly getting like contacts.
The Sixers will meet head coach former head coach Doc Rivers to discuss the 70 Sixers head coaching job.
Uh, the other top candidates are Mike D'Antoni in Thailand, who also met with Elton Brand, filled up 70 Sixers general manager in um ownership, including Jobs Harris and David Blitzer.
But for the Sixers for now, the focus is on Doc Rivers and Mike D'Antoni.
Her in source, like ESPN.
Warner, would you like a decision with Doc going to Billy? Would you like that? I would love that.
Um, honestly, kind of brings up some lob city vibes.
Except you have been Simmons who's a better defender.
Um, and and like a bigger Chris Paul. Yeah.
Yes, but he couldn't defend the range of positions that Ben Simmons can right now.
Just simply do the height in physical tools, um, and and and beat is better than I think Blake Griffin ever has been.
Um, so I think they definitely that would be a fun team to watch.
And I would expect them thio greatly increase their winning percentage and their playoff success.
Um, just because of Doc Rivers is being there.
You and I have criticized, um, their their use of of Embiid and Simmons and kind of the offense that they that they that they ran.
We even did a film study on it.
So I think Doc being there is gonna bring a whole lot more ingenuity and smart to that offense.
And we're going to see a successful 70 Sixers team Um, And next year, Yeah, If anybody is going to get this toe work with Simmons that be currently constructed, it's Doc Rivers.
I feel, you know, um, because you look back now, I think about this.
He kind of had to deal with the lob city team.
Except take Chris Paul out of it, right.
You had you had Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan on the floor at the same time, right? So you had to find a way to space the floor and have enough basic for your for your other, uh, for your other scores.
Right? So if Doc is going and Blake Griffin at the time wasn't a great ball halo or shooter yet, right? I mean, Blake was always at least average ball handler and could create for some other players, right? Well, whatever.
He was not a great shooter at the star, right? And part of him, part of Blake developing a shooting and becoming a better shooter with because of himself.
But you got credit, Doc, a little bit too. Right.
So, um, I think if anybody still make this work is Doc and I pray to God and Jesus and anybody else.
I mean, if you pray, pray to your six or seven.
You do not want Mike D'Antoni.
Oh my Lord, you don't want Mike D'Antoni at your head coach as the Sixes are currently constructive, You get Mike D'Antoni.
I'll say this on the air right now. Wonder expect.
Ben said to be traded.
If I think Tony is the head coach, expect medicine is to be traded or drawing me. Wanted to.
If not, and I can tell you is the head coach.
One of those two is getting traded.
Actually, I think I think Ben Simmons is either gonna face a lot less of a role or he will betrayed it.
Probably for a guy like James Harden E.
For some reason that that's in.
That's in the rumor mill right now that D'Antoni goes toe Philly, the ideas toe try Thio, Get James Harden and it come to be a trade James, I wonder I wonder how that would work if he got James Hardie nb It has to be Indeed, they're not training.
They're not training Simmons for Harden that that z you would of course, have to package that with with picks and such I don't think they're gonna trade hard anyways because they think they can compete with a better head coach.
Um, yeah, I don't know who in the right mind thinks that the rocket trade Harden, let alone for Ben Simmons because I mean Ben Simmons or rolling me so And Simmons and Harden don't they don't pair well, that needs the ball in his hands, or he's an absolute liability.
That's what lead and Harden might be interesting, but it's not gonna happen, right? It's not gonna because the trade is terrible.
And again Simmons and Harden Simmons without the ball in his hands is a liability because he can't be ofall and, like, have a God dry penetrated kick out of the chute because he doesn't shoot.
So he's an absolute liability offensively, for if if in some crazy, weird scenario, the Rockets trade harder.
But now we could get back to baseball right quick, though breaking news on the NFL breaking new way really need, like the things off breaking whatever Baltimore Ravens, what we really dio Yes, we really do, because right now make it random like Sean.
Stop What? What is that? But the Baltimore Ravens have signed All Pro quarterback Marlon Humphrey.
Five years, $98.
75 million contract extension.
Adam Schefter reported The agreement off averages $19.
75 million per season, which makes Mom and Humphrey the second highest paid cornerback.
Onley behind Jalen Ramsey.
20 mil for season one really quickly.
What's your initial reaction that before we keep going, by the way, he was just drafted a couple years ago. 2017.
Alexander, right? Yeah, and that's where it gets me.
If we gotta sign Alexander.
That's that kind of money.
There's no way we're gonna be able to keep, uh, Aaron Rodgers on on the team with his with that kind of payroll.
Um, now he deserves every penny of that.
Marlon Humphrey, huh? The Braves could do it. You could do it.
Golf Getting paid that kind of money Cup cup, woods, Donald Ramsay. Like that.
Like they just abused the salary cap in there.
Playing Madden e.
Don't be saying error, error, error.
The salary cap does not exist in in locker rooms like New Orleans, Casey and in L.
In the Rams, but it definitely exists.
It definitely exists in the charges because they don't want to go out and get anybody.
Um uh, just know.
That's more of like, a Bengals kind of thing.
The Bengals just freed they I think Mike Brown must just money just sitting on top of money just to sit there.
I mean, I think Mike Brown must, like, sleep extra long and be like I slept the free agency, but no. Oh, my God.
I went I went into a coma.
Can we sign anybody? No, no, no, no.
Because I had all my money locked up and I wouldn't give it Teoh.
We're like, call his assistant.
Do we sign anybody? No, sir.
We did not very well.
Oh, my God. I was worried for it.
That little bit. I gotta have my money.
I'm not rich enough abusing the city of Cincinnati for all the money that I got from my stadium.
And honestly, if I'm Cincinnati, I would just let the Bengals move.
What do they really bring into the town right now? Sad, sad people.
I mean, hey, good buddy.
Matt was watching today's episode.
That's just so John Matt broke **** on one of our episode shoutout child Matt.
Oh, great God shout from that.
But it's just yeah.
Oh, man, Yeah, it's gonna be He deserves every penny of it, But at the same time, that's going to cause a significant Can't be you.
Well, at least my start defensive back is healthy every year.
What's longer to say? It's common.
At least my quarterback, a last game and asleep have to worry about my attorney.
So I have to worry about my quarterback getting hurt every year.
Why? Because the doctors punctured his lung for you at the beginning of you Don't know what like, how do you puncture? I was actually throwing the disc at Aaron Rodgers.
I think you dodged it and just trying to reverse it back on me so that didn't work out.
Well, let's get back to some baseball.
That much of warning the light.
Yes, let's get back to baseball.
Are you not introduce? Like like like what? What like what are you doing here? I can interest I can introduce it.
You know I have what, what? Or the Astros up.
They swept the Twins and Carlos Korea had some choice words to say, calling out Quote unquote Peters.
Beating and sweeping the Twins.
One or the Astros getting too ****y are Are they Are they other way? Got a chip on the shoulder right now? Um, everybody got at him.
You know George Springer coming into a free agent year with no, with no trash cans, um was really playing poorly at the beginning of the year, and people started to wonder.
What what's his success? Mostly because he knew what pictures were coming.
Now that doesn't have that anymore.
Is he were these free agent? If these Astros play well during the during the playoffs, it's It's going to really put a lot of people back in their seats, especially Dodgers fans, because maybe maybe the Astros earned that earned that World Series win.
Um, despite the camera and the trash can usage.
So, uh, you know, I'm rooting for him.
I did pick the Twins toe win, but I said the beginning of the year, um, that I think the Astros, we're gonna have a successful season, um, and and and make it run into the playoffs, and so far I've been correct about that.
Holla, holla! Holla! Holl! Did you say that you're rooting for him? Yeah, I am.
I'm kicking you out by.
Seriously, that is just absolutely ridiculous.
They cost my Dodgers the world.
Okay, The Dodgers have cost themselves a World Series plenty of years.
That was supposed to be the year, and they cost us, so let me have my moment.
Okay? Zip it. Okay.
Um, I don't think they'll go Thio one Siri's.
Either way, I think they're They're starting pitching and rotation, especially have Berlin being gone.
It's really concerning to me, right? Um, you've got the Yankees.
Like the or the race.
Whoever Wednesday Yankees Rays matchup is going to the world.
I'm gonna stay there right now.
Whoever was that syriza going to the World Series because I don't think I think both of those teams would lead by the rotation in terms of the Yankees and the lineup in terms I mean, the race and the lineup in terms of the Yankees he raised out of his no slouch either, though will be will be enough to power them over the ashes or the White Sox to the AIDS.
I think I think the AIDS work tonight, so yeah, that has to stop it.
The haters that are on your backs right now are deserves.
And I like Warren just disliking players for absolutely no reason other than them being better than his favorite player.
Um oh, ally, I'm saying is I'm rooting for him because they they've been getting a lot of much deserved hate.
But I think they hate has continued beyond the much deserved level like this is where they were.
This is how much a normal team who doesn't cheat deserves hate their deserved hate markets probably up here.
But right now, the hate that they're getting is exceeding.
Oh, like like our people are is a bad like I think they said they got a couple of deficits are vast.
Majority of people say, Oh, don't kill you blah, blah, blah.
No, we're just saying, Hey, trash cans.
Come here, buddy.
Hey, hey, Hitch outside.
Quarter outside quarter.
Hey, hey, Camera.
I'm a camera out like people are just doing that.
And Joe Kelly, she's making a frowny face out, which I'll never forget the episode we did where you were.
You well, on your defending the Astros because they got a little bit emotional within their feelings because joke, not what he said to them, which reportedly, he threw a keep custom or whatever course them or whatever.
But the Friday for the that you were defending the Astros because they were a little in their feelings and emotional because Joe Kelly Brown dead them or whatever.
That wasn't because Djoko frowned at him.
And you know that my back No, no, no.
This is exactly what you said.
Uh, it was hypocritical and it quotes.
It was hypocritical, hypocritical, because the first two or whatever pitches we're, we're not properly placed correctly.
And then he struck him out, and then he gave him a frowny face and blah, blah blah.
That's pretty much what What? What? What? What? I believe what I said was, um, listen, if you pitch that wildly, maybe be a little bit more humble.
I think he was just being a little bit too ****y based on the way he pitched.
He did not pitch well.
If he pitched that wildly, showed the actual player no don't swing at it.
Joe Kelly has the right to give a frowny face.
Oh, my gosh! Like like it's almost like you mean playing pick up basketball.
We're going the 1st 1st bucket wins.
First basket wins, right? And we both go.
Oh, pretend to start.
And then I go across over behind the back jumper, setback, jumper and I give you a Friday face.
There's nothing wrong with that.
But I was e I would be a little bit ticked off at you because, dude, you just went over 10.
And I know I wasn't good one.
Yeah, you deserved the win.
But Friday, face, calm down.
If we were going back, if we were going back and forth and and and you know it was first to, like first to 21 it was 1918.
Win by two and you come and you hit a three in my face and win 21 19 front of me all.
You want a good game.
But if you're over 10 that's the moment where you're like, Dude, come on.
It was back and forth.
Shows the sportsmanship Don't brown away.
If you could talk trash will do.
The frowny face will have something that's bad sportsmanship.
That's the moment where I'm like, Yeah, go ahead, be upset.
But we're I mean, come on now.
Won't have any more topics left.
Yeah, so let's let's just recap who we think we're gonna take these Siri's.
Um let's start with the remaining American League.
Siri's A's White Sox who wins.
And I I picked the odds to win the SYRIZA.
I'm gonna stick with the A's win tonight.
They'll go face the Astros.
Okay, um Dodgers, Brewers, Brewers.
Okay, Next it, uh oh.
We've got the Padres and the Cardinals Cardinals up one zip.
Who wins tonight? I picked the Padres The win, the Siri's thinking that stick with the Padres when it's a paddock.
I lit up last night.
Patty did, um, now Miami and Chicago.
Who wins tonight? You got I'm just hearing this voice in my head right now.
You saying the Marlins have never lost e? Uh, I wanna be that guy and say I'm sticking with my pick.
I'm gonna stick with.
I'm gonna go with the cubs still, but I promise you I'm just hearing that voice in my head, said Sean.
The Marlins have never lost e like talking to me.
And then Braves and the Braves team.
Really? I hope the Dodgers lose hope the Dodgers lose.
I hope Milwaukee puts up 14 on you guys on.
All right, that's all.
That's all I got.
It was a little bit short of an episode today, I believe.
Um, although, actually, I don't even know how long it was.
So that was hurtful your dad to say that? Oh, my gosh.
How long was it? I think maybe, like 40 minutes.
Someone 40 45 minutes.
You know, I got one more topic to end the show.
So there are a handful of O and three teams.
That's all right now.
I got the Falcons, the Bangles, the Vikings, the Texans, the Jets, the Broncos.
Nobody cares about those teams that were being, by the way, Thursday Night Football tonight.
Brown's Broncos Jets, the game that nobody's gonna watch the game that Sean and I both eliminated from pick pick seven or pick six or whatever.
Um because the broadcasters the jet, I think I think those two teams have the two.
Worst defense is in the NFL, and then the Bronx and then the I know, I like statistically this year.
Uh, andan the Broncos were granted.
The Broncos have dealt with big time injuries.
Von Miller Drug cases now down.
Oh! Oh, Drill, Casey, come on.
It's not prime drill, Casey.
All right, well, let him go for a reason.
One of which, Owen three team, which owned three team I'm sorry, which Oh, and three team has the best shot to make the playoffs in your ear.
So it's a long shot, but which team is gonna be a team? Which team has the best shot? Oh, well, you want me to go? But we couldn't just say winless team because I would pick the Eagles if it was winless teams.
Okay with this one.
But let's go 13 Personally, I don't think any of them are gonna make it, but I'd have to say the team with the best shot, it's gonna be the Falcons.
I mean, I think they're going to start the season before we saw them kind of make a run.
Um, last season and just looking at the standings here.
The Falcons have a very, very high powered offense.
Um, and you know, the Jets with the Jets? They're the worst team in the NFL.
Um, Houston, I think what I think Tennessee and into your better teams in the use.
And I don't think they're gonna be able to do anything.
The Broncos, Not with all the injuries they've gone through the Giants, Really? I mean, we're talking about the Giants.
They're probably the second worst team in the NFL.
Um, Minnesota, I think, actually has a good shot.
Forgot about them.
I'm gonna say Minnesota because of their, um I think the defense is still is still good.
Um, even though Daniel Hunter is was banged up to start the season and they lost Stefon Diggs, if I had to choose another team besides Minnesota, though, I would definitely have to choose Atlanta, because, I mean, right now the Saints won and to the Panthers one and to the Bucks, two and one.
And you know, all I'm saying is you didn't You didn't make the bucks to lose this week, so I mean, it's a shot.
All I'm saying is the every single team in the NFC West could be the division leader in the NFC South.
Um, all of those teams are two and one except the Seahawks, who were three.
And oh, of course.
So you know what? If it's any team outside of the Vikings, I'd say definitely Atlanta.
But if I just had to choose one Minnesota because Chicago is not to be able to keep up this success, they've played honestly, not very good teams.
Anyways, for their first team in that history, they very easily to be only three right now.
Oh, yeah, Yeah, definitely.
I mean, if your backup is Nick Foles and all right, my turn.
Um, the I could e I mean, if you wanna finish, they beat the lions, the bears, and then the can't hold a leave.
The bears, the Bears beat the lions, the bears and the can't Holy Balkans.
I'm just repeating what you said.
Really? They beat the Giants, who I just said was probably the second worst team in the NFL.
So, joke of the season they've had so far, um, for me I'm gonna go with a land.
I see a reasoning.
They could Auster another team that could be at least 11 They blew out the Cowboys game.
They lost that game because they couldn't start the game off.
They ran off touchdown after touchdown in the second half, so they could easily possibly be through, you know? Anyway, I'm gonna go with the Eastern Texas.
I talked about it on, I think, another episode previously this week.
The Texans aren't gonna do anything unless they get DeAndre.
Hopkins for David Johnson reversed.
Not going to do anything.
Um, e I mean, they've had probably one of the brightest, brightest brutalist, most brutal.
Grab gave to a season.
