It's. Cool it's yeah. It's the end stage. Stadium this year. She's sad sacks. Cohosts combining for a stolen six. Tempered in the playoffs. Got to come clean and start the rallying cry of wait till next year hurdle and all brought with you for the next couple of hours feel free to call in. Give us crap. Will counter with some lane come back like whoa how did your team do. I don't know Jacob in the well I watched the rest of the baseball playoffs now even. Corso will. But. I. Ever I ideal preparation c'mon. I say that I won't watch the rest and then I'd stay up way too late and trying to keep my eyes open here does that stupid thing caps giant's game last night. I'm still not over yet boy guy. You know EU. Sit there in weight through all the wins and and say are right everything's lined up this year he got the two pitchers at the top you wanted to get help the end. You run into the buzz saw that is the Blue Jays in there there is not and the Rangers were gonna do in that series they've they've made some bad plays but I. Hang it. That we talk about how. Crappy it is to have a five game Ceres to start he I've games Ceres. Eager to get down to low. It's going to rely on this city so is this series is over and how it that's just really. That's a tough way to do it in baseball and you give us another two days on the season. And opened that thing up with a seven game series I hate the five game series obviously now last two years the five game series is built me. You know I mean it's. You get into any long gaining the sooner did he the post season which can stretch to November anyway acts. But I mean I hear yeah I mean. Especially Europeans when you lose two at home I mean you might as well turn the page at that point. Nivins and that's tough because of a seven game series if you lose two in a row you is not a big deal really hit it right point in the series so. Hack it around her and her. Well the Red Sox followed suit. You know I couldn't Muster much of a mercy you know every now and then. I don't know how you felt. But as I felt watching it over the weekend was like term now. And you know UT you sit there and you think well you know okay. We will get back home and and win and will play better and and and will will get a win will make game for much more interest staying. With a chance to shifted back to in my case Cleveland but I never felt that way I felt like Cleveland was the better team. Com I don't think that Cleveland's a better team then Boston they were better in these three in this three game series which is evidenced by the swank. It's that it's the nature of the game and it's the ever in the flow where a team is at a particular point shame on the Rangers in the Red Sox are not being. But what ever more emotional team ready whatever the case may be you know you can get in all of that all you want. But sometimes it's just matchups sometimes it's just rhythm of the game sometimes it's the way your team is going sometimes there's a lot of different factors and and you tip your hat to the Blue Jays and I tip my hat to the to the Cleveland Indians and say go enjoy your little American League Championship Series it'll played you played out in relative anonymity in. Not although all tune into the nationally there is that they're taking my ball and going home. Yeah has is fat Sam you to beat them not tipping my hat no anybody right now I'd I hate the Blue Jays are climbing up public enemy number one less territory for Rangers fans. I just you know if you ever think they story lines is kind of played themselves out we always looked he had. The Red Sox are the Ortiz. In his swan song yet had. The Rangers that were seemingly giving Beltran one more try Adrian Beltre to. It Beltran for sure hall of Famer that hasn't you know gotten it done. And you've got those going for. Dark issues is fun to watch it she's not the best but he's just fun to watch pitches as we have in the game. They all these story lines and then we get Toronto and Cleveland. I'm baseball's probably not thrilled about that TV wise. But I don't know when I sat two run walk off against Baltimore it my stomach dropped I just got cannot do it the are right baseball you had these guys down and now you let him back in. So I blame Buck Showalter for the Rangers as. How about I I'm not an actress. And look up to save us the Toronto and Cleveland probably isn't gonna move the meter initially. Baseball fans and people in those two markets will give it a try it could bring it every union on mean it. It'll be got Syrians satellite Purdue's here is Seattle minor series at all not. I think Cleveland's got one of the better rotations and to watch them matchup against. What I think and I know that I know that the Red Sox scored more runs I think that there is not a more dangerous lineups in Toronto. And I and I was trying to go back. During that Ceres and seeing it. Got has there ever being a better three stacked than Donaldson Encarnacion and Batista. As far as just power masters. In a line now. I mean you're talking. So he's I don't know with three of them that I have that kind of power Adam on any injury quit ski and actually he's down the line you know being you know races and his power's not I don't think there with those guys now but he's still one of my favorite players of all time but that Federer that line up. It's just. The key just it's hard to get through it and I'll be interested to see these if they stay. Hot in a neat and say this about any team at them particularly a ticket they keep hitting nobody's gonna beat them I mean that they'll they'll just they'll beat everybody because they've got a good bullpen. And David their starting pitching is. Okay and me it's it's good enough with that lineup to get it to. The bullpen and only time. How much of the nationals flying under the wire right now for sure I mean I mean you almost you always gotta go search to say that Cano who's a man other series. Because the Cubs in the Giants are obviously. Garnering. Have been monstrous attention and what a ball game last night thirteen innings. Late game more Connor Gillespie's. Not in the eighth in the and the Cubs resilience you know if I was thinking about this this morning even in losing. Last night the Cubs win. Just in terms of their perseverance and their resilience now look you don't jacked around in a five game series. And you don't jacked around with the Giants because they're pitching he's good enough to beat you at this this series at eight. When you go 202 to nothing back to San Francisco. That's a lot different than other series going back to nothing to some places because the Giants have so much good to us starting pitching. This series is far from over. So you know I I don't know interest in. Yeah but the but the you've got the nationals. You've got the national sitting there. Just kind of quietly going about their business may be about the most inconspicuous. Teen in these playoffs and that includes Cleveland and Toronto's already had their work done for awhile. I don't know of the who's the favorite right now honestly question I don't I don't. I have no clue and I think that's fine I mean that's a good thing and it probably is always that way in baseball. But I really like I've got no feel. For what will happen in this post season none I got to. So it's it's been good so far in the games there have been a lot of good individual games in the series I just I'm so sad. But Sosa had. Well it happens can we have to like gab we can is are we going to be enough to we just have a pity party will people indulge that. Through no I don't no no I think I intact in fact I think that most. Most. Will indulge themselves in flipping a scrap. That's just kind of the way it is just we rub it in their face and I know I and it. Not in name mean spirited way but fans of our club at Texas had a great season. Up until the end Boston had a great season up until the end do the playoffs change it would mean they do I mean. He changes the entire tenor of the season there wasn't a great season and all it was a it was a good season they won a division great. I'm not sure what you do with that fifty cents buys your cup of coffee along with your division championship. Fifty cents when my talking about about four and a half bucks but anyway. No I don't think anyone I I think people rubble in other people's. Misery a little bit. Now I just think it's a natural thing so I wouldn't expect any love at all from the listening audience whatsoever that. No no sympathy nothing like that at all but. You know let it here's another thing I was thinking about this morning now this frees me. To watch the rest of the baseball playoffs. And the World Series without any without any it without a dog in the fight so. But that's OK that I'll be all right. Very irritated last night. Think of poultry poppy thing says that was cool I mean I will say that you know in them call on around him coming out and I mean that was that was a nice moment. And it's and it ended and he gives you. And admit she it was it was at least to feel good moment during a feel bad moment. Non. Ian you know now what twelve hours or however many hours later that it doesn't do much to massage the feeling of the season being over. But you know you move on and I don't know like you say I don't have a favorite in this thing I'm just for good baseball now and we've had colonial but so far in the post season. Lot of good games. An and no reason to think that when I connect continue to have good games. I don't know who I would lie I'm not so sure that's. That it is Toronto. This Toronto the team to watch right now if you if you believe in things like you know the way they're playing in the end men and the way there. You know I don't know maybe Toronto as a team I maybe if you're looking for something it's maybe a little off the radar. Cleveland stand out to meet Cleve almost stay under the radar on this because every normal look back and say oh what the yet they'll say exactly that then they'll say Toronto late inning watch. In Cleveland just gonna sit there like they have all season long and say hey as we you know we won a pretty good division. And we're just gonna you know we're roll out our car really good starting pitching in the end amazing bowl then. Where all the sudden Terry Francona is given it to Miller for a couple innings in the middle of the games and thank you for the love of god I don't know why that doesn't happen more often. And they're gonna be dangerous to point Terry Francona added to it and is there and I mean I don't know boats she might be this way. But is there a manager left in the playoffs. I mean who who else would you rather play four doesn't Terry Francona and obviously I I've got a little bit of carry over from his time with the Boston. And what he did there and stuff but he just. It just seems like such a good dude a mean day in ironically there's another guy that you'd rather play for its left managing in the playoffs. Getting natsios is that way for Royals fans I think so too yeah I think he has Francona is yeah Francona definitely fits that mold I think he got us. I think Billy Butler coaches top he's got such as such you like the street lying flat lined demeanor that it's hard to tell with him raised its kind of Belichick Keyon. Not as he's not as unfriendly I don't think to people but he's just that vary. Just monotone whatever after game we know him in there you know that that kind of stuff outside of heartache teach his personality but I think he's probably all right. Yeah I can canister for the Rangers no way adding hit that he's always trying to fight somebody. I can I don't know Dave Roberts and maybe aren't going easy to root for Francona as you need to root for it what Joseph Maddon looked Joseph sense. Yet Joseph Maddon is very likely why I'm outta yeah yeah I know there's les. Is to me is he's he is. We just listening to them off the field and and knowing some of the things who is doing in camp working in Tampa Bay with. With what they had to deal with there for so long I can couple for Joseph Maddon. I don't know I guess I can get behind the Cubs finally getting over this week it stopped talking about it every year. An aunt because Joseph Maddon would get in there I'd be OK with that. I guess I'm OK with the Cubs. You know I haven't grown tired of it that their indelible ball club and done. An end and and and what about the Cubs is unlikable other than the fact that it's just the story. In that it's been magnified. And so much by there lovable losers plight over the years. I mean none of these guys have had anything to do with the whole lovable losers thing. On a mean this was a team that was in the National League Championship Series a year ago may very well be in it again this year I don't mean it. There's nothing about the Cubs that make them. I this. Even though they're kind of like the the easy team to jump on the bandwagon for. They don't feel like. For whatever reason to need a trendy team. And that doesn't make any sense walker at all it it they've always been a trendy team right and Ann and Andy clearly they still are I mean you know I mean is it that. People wanna love the Cubs and stuff like that. So that naturally puts me in a position to say find something wrong with them so you don't like them. But what is there not to like about the Cubs really. I mean I don't know overall this chat oldest Chatman that I got okayed that done all right I'll give you that Murray and bringing him. In is a little bit unlikable but I get edited sack and it it you know whatever. And but yet that that would be something I think just the fact that everybody. You know everybody you talked to his Cubs stand out a Cubs fan all locally. You know. Law arms you know I mean like that yep but that had that makes me hate their debt makes me irritated with their fans or whatever they are. It doesn't take your time with my genius fan of the Cubs they pick ups that. I just liked to always have to than reference all the lovable loser like I am ready for the lovable loser and losers thing to be over west. To caddie says you feel like it's the only thing that makes people Cubs fans. I guess yeah probably I mean I yeah it's those people you wanna say okay give me the three middle guys in the in the lineup I know that that I know that. The Cubs like the Braves have weird pockets of fans because of the cable networks in the way that used to work. When I was a kid like I can watch a Cubs or Braves game before I can watch a Rangers game growing up because they runner basic cable. So I I guess I get it but yeah let's just let's move past it and understand that. It's hard to do it the Cubs right now are not lovable losers because they're going to be big spenders. They're loaded. And they're going to be good for real long time so I don't I don't look at him any more that way because that's just not what they are now if you if you're looking for a team. That's doing you know that sort of fighting against the odds a little bit it it's probably. Cleveland. And out of experts Chicago. History. The right you're right it's the history it's the overwhelming it's nineteen no way to prepare his practice doesn't pot doesn't affect me. Mean I don't care like I I don't you know eat it and I'm looking at right now when. It's just know they're not a Cinderella I guess so if I want that like feel good story wanted to be a Cinderella team and they're they're so far from that. I mean if they win it'll be great story obviously and cool and whatever but. Fine I'm not I'm not treating him like like that Cinderella story if you look that's. It well if no matter what happens that's probably gonna come out of the American League at acting too. We can't really say it about Toronto because they've been there but they went at it but. The Cleveland and hand you can't ask legal let me ask. The question and in a different way to give me your top three. Most attractive champions. In other words. If furcal if we were using the feel good index right now. Give me the top three in the feel good index. Potential World Series winners of the teams remaining in the playoffs right now. Newton new Cubs. Cubs. Cubs are certainly one of well we try. Does it feel goods interest in most most interesting or just feel good. Things you can combine the 20 because I think that the Giants getting in with bum Garner is very interesting again Kerry. And I become a team you wanna see it lose. God I'd be. I guess it's the Blue Jays and I don't know why that is I think that's probably right now. And he the Indians are better but the thing is like I put both of those teams in the playoffs anyway. So me I mean it I don't feel like either them or Cinderella. So so so there's something about what the Blue Jays are doing and I don't know what it's because I was there. Last year in the playoffs and sort of get a feel for that fan base up close and personal one and just how rabid fans they are that baseball team the fact that I love. As much as I hate the Blue Jays right now. And most of their players I do love that there's a team in Canada. I loved the nation gets behind one team I think that's all really cool staff. Newton and and I think that that's entertaining I don't know pay and got it to play a team like the Giants I would love to see again like bomb Garner face that lineup twice but that's just itself that now that's a selfish baseball might. Nobody else cares about that. Who is being cheered against the most with the Giants or the Cubs that Giants yeah I'd say so too just because of the familiarity that they have. In the post season in the fact that they've won. So many here we have a short time and they've had a lot of time to anger every fan base is a pride beat them along the way to their three and outs series championships sudden growth. Now I have absolutely absolutely. I don't know pretty good stuff pretty good stuff I gotta I'm I'm trying to force myself to pay more attention to the nationals and the Dodgers. Well I look I don't know why it is but that is the series and in your talking about its massive audiences don't like massive market size every surface and Bryce Harper in Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer I mean some of the biggest stars in the game and I don't know why. And I'm with you I don't know why that's not paying in as much for me and maybe it will act because I guess because those two teams always of the teams that Al out before then. And so you just don't take him seriously yet I guess I I don't know what it is but I'm with it's it's. It's just not hit me right now yeah it's been the one series I haven't been able to zone in on in fact. I think I may be watched two innings of that series tops to this point I've seen tons. Of of all the rest of the series. But but have only seen just a little bit about one anywhere. Profit movement today. 8691240. On the I guided attached locker room hotline at 869. 1240 on the I got it at had so locker room hotline. I did we win or did you win your fantasy game last week we're kicking ass on virtual way I am we're fine but yeah get. You can't win just brush that aside Churchill's having a pity party witnessed by the way on Twitter about his fancy to himself. But by the way virtually basically his he up to one in four start right now and we know who's counting right if he's in last I have could end up on us. I. I. Yeah I believe he's one and four year act a lark it hits though hence the term bottom feeders. I cleaning that's for right now we've got that team sports daily we do we do have Preston earner undefeated or four and one. We are running away with the field in total points scored Burress so that's beautiful that it later nicely done and let's see career grab Virgil one in four and and we doesn't have the fewest points in the league he has the fewest wins in the second fewest points in the week. Mind how the mighty. Have fallen. Well you know what he's gonna say tomorrow. While I'm a playoff guy don't care I just got to get to the playoffs.
