No way are we are back. Can better than ever might get might presented by a progressive insurance. Our guest on the shell Pennzoil performance I'm owed me your little line OK got to say airline everyday we're back in bad and Paula we're not. Gold is back. Better than ever is debatable. The comeback is complete. The cardiac kids in pinstripes picked up their beleaguered manager and carry them on their shoulders to the ALCS while the Cleveland Indians. For the second straight season. Had three chances to close out a playoff series and could not get it done I had already planned and written. Go like I'm the party because that one was brutal that is a really tough law's sister that I don't understand. About a lot of it for. The foremost let's wait and see how the unions protest were other protests of the game OK fair enough because so it's very likely that at every play Jack yet had a gamers under protest because. Bill Austin at 5050 shot that at that overture to go Shaq and our before organ of the game for a personal standpoint I. I don't understand why maybe you tell me maybe I'm missing some thing. The vitriol being thrown my way I mean before these series in these games don't I wish both teams lock. And say you know what I'm just rooting for. Good athletic player out there no matter which team wins yeah I'd just looking for some fair play integrity of the game right you do not say that it will and be great if the Indians win great but I don't really pick favorites it's not my job I'm not biased. So I don't understand why a lot of people are are coming after or is that it was over he called it over very in my. Ought to my Gene Wilder SoundBite I did all that you did most of those things you'd have been particularly upset if I had done this. I had just put. This was at listen this game yeah. Took ten years off the lives of every person who watch it all kidding aside. As as as raw. Rural law says that is and you know like I mean I'm I'm from New York I'm rooting for the as a very glad they want them I love a lot of guys over there in Cleveland particular Francona was a threat to both of ours. That is our our gutting Amanda Palmer got rained it is that if. Eight is one of those and all kidding aside I know life I talked a lot of smack I deserve everything I got thrown at me that's fine. And I have a I have a Bobble head to award to a guy that I will play out all right. Yes yes I'll I'll I'll pay up by his way into the bobbled yet gotten coach just a a no choice but by the worst one. If it will be because he's Yankee fan to edit or strike and I I've heard out of a Saber you're gonna say about a great series what what are the bomb. Tweets I got was as a stealth failed season for the union yes it is. You know I know baseball is it's hard to make the playoffs and I know you may disagree but. But these players a lot of the same players. You you're up 31 in the World Series last year. Basically considered the best team you're playing that way you know the Dodgers starter played certainly while again the hybrid in the American League and the Astros have been playing well again it. But. There's. At least you get back to the World Series you know even if they lost Derek and you could say okay it wasn't felt but up but I I think it is I think Gary record figure is. And I'm going opera from the athlete's side and adjust the mentality. You know nothing to do with the game but. It is going to you know I talk about when your season then junior season and in the post season it's you know with with the lesser winner take all that you know it's gonna be over you know you know your season is done. When the yanks were down two zip just the mental. Not only from them their families wise cure whatever you know of you kind of start. Seasons come over you kind of start looking through what the Aussie you just naturally kind of do that when you're down two zip. And the other side the Indians is just client are there there there's no deviation from this at all that it's 21 minister to. And even so he could and should the Indians were highly confident they're gonna win this one the mentality starts to shift a little bit certainly from the yankees' side. I can't be that bad I hated every year but a lot of years you could see it coming you knew what was especially if you didn't make the policies and obviously the end of the years pretty apparent. But when you make it if you're the best team or not in my sport it's one game in your dog. For these guys to go in today and clean out their locker is going to be. Brutal completely did did the plan was all the way through World Series and have a cut short after even being up two zip. And losing three games and roll like last year being up through one of losing three in a row. It is a got shot and and I can't even imagine that clubhouse today how brutal it is going to be clean up and and packet out for the yeah for the winner. I totally get what you're saying and I understand how one just specifically with regard to whether this season is a failure I'm not. I I can't. I just can't get close but just what I can't call at that price they may feel that way right. And the fact that dog talking about how they're feeling good it's a fails it's the fact that they were in game seven of the World Series a year ago and the fact that they had a two nothing lead in the series after. Stealing game too I waited they did I mean not not that they didn't deserve to win it that was the game. That Girardi made the mistakes and everything else but after being down five runs in game two on coming back to win and if you listen to that ballpark if you work. In New York it's Saturday morning as I was sitting at a coffee shop listening to people screaming and cursing and that series felt over from both sides. You're right the Yankees came back from the dead and the Indians go into what will be a very long and cold winter. And we evil let's go off the top of the topic that was two home runs Mike. From DD Gregorio is the first one that set its own. The second one that kept the Yankees going and in the end it is the Yankees to advance after big ripping game five win in Cleveland. To the AL CN how about this and I Yankee or multi homer and games in a winner take all game yankees' postseason history. 2003 ALCS game seven Jason Giambi against the Red Sox. And you go back to 1956. The World Series game seven. Yankees Dodgers Yogi Berra I mean that that's that's an oppressive company but the universe I mean what what do job he's doing good he's followed a guy who's striking at a record pace. You know in now Orton yes in record of fog out a bunker and got sixteen strikeouts and earned judge. I had in this regards actually pick in this team up in this one record clover I mean my gosh. Last two starts what nine runs his last three postseason starts he's given up. Thirteen runs. Eight it's been absolutely brutal and uphold logic game seven arrest last year we are all well and give him some slack because there was never consecutive short start up. So we knew that he'd be the sort of used to it isn't here yet to start been brutal given up home runs to boot so deductible at the end of the day all kidding aside about my talked tip your cap. To the Yankees for being down two zip an apt to stand strong and get the job done and CC sabathia just fired and view on site. Out. Rate 22 game win streak. A 102. Win regular season. The Indians go home disappointed again. We've been talking about here ready early this morning that it's gonna feel like a lost season because they were so good they had the 2.2 game win streak into. It's very tough for me to say this season is a failure but I'm sure they feel that way right now there's no doubt they feel that way right now sixth straight. Games with a chance to clinch. Again last year was a World Series a chance to Clinton here. The AL DS have a chance to clinch again a small sampling but still. No team that has won twice hurricanes remember we're talking about the chase in the 1960 giants who won 26. Straight the giants missed the post season that year. The Indians this year 22 wins loss and LDS and the cubs in 1935. Torre went straight wins lost in the World Series in the days in note two. Warning sirens 120 straight wins lost. In the LDS so warnings warning or order a season isn't guaranteeing you a lot and actually to this point it's guaranteeing number and not win the world. And earlier game water performance from Stephen Strasburg like you weren't here yesterday but this was. One of the strangest. Stories that we've seen the 24 hours in the life of Stephen Strasburg. That began with Dusty Baker saying that he wasn't going to be able to play because of mold and air conditioning right. And it ended with him throwing seven brilliant innings at Wrigley Field and striking out twelve. That's about as remarkable little span as we've seen a long dead got a call I was out I was obviously out yesterday and and pretty busy through days of just check in occasionally what was daughter read about that I thought about. Use in the mold excused today after the game last night Howard the Indian saying mold affected me that could make it into the show but yeah as you mentioned struck out while he struck out. Ten in game one of the series he's a third different National League pitcher to have multiple. Ten game strikeouts in the same post season series. And the first listen of the eastern. The first and Bob Gibson. In the 1968 World Series Gibson did it twice also and 67. And before that was 1965. And sandy call for those of the tuning me in are you kidding. I mean you'll love when you're part of it lists but that is a list that is a short list and a sweet list. B I will get plenty in that game is. I what else do we have today we got week six of the NFL season. Kicking off tonight with a huge game we got the Eagles and the Panthers don't want to head to head might vote to both teams are foreign walked both quarterbacks you know we would Carson once it's just a second here so the maturation of imminent Cam Newton everybody hoping hoping certainly in Carolina and wonder if he can you back to that MVP. Guy that it was a couple of years ago Carson once is already thrown twice as many touchdowns. On third down this season he's already thrown six than he had all last season with three. And Cam Newton leads all qualified quarterback in completion percentage on play action he's completing. Just under 78%. Of his passes on play action and I'll throw fifteen yards. Down on the field sell both quarterbacks are really playing well right now again would the would. Of the Philadelphia I think the biggest difference of them are running the ball well. And Ali good timing today for tiger Lou we'll have the coach of the cavaliers live. Just after 9 o'clock eastern time this morning and we'll try to get an injury update on the Brian James might who will miss the rest of the three season which is not that import no it's not but his status for the opener. Which will involve Kyra coming back to Cleveland right is now in question that it is so you know they have some time before that source your kind of rehab I don't match to order get a definitive answer on alert today by. Certainly be good to talk to him in and out. That's all you're waiting for to see if so why now I think we're pretty much guarantee what happens to Tyreke when he comes practically grown up against shortages destroys it basically the city of Cleveland not the team not the management but the city of Cleveland the will get to the lawyer coached. And that's what I'm talking about on this very busy morning it brought you by O'Reilly auto parts better parts better prices. Every day what game what a series the drama of this American League division series. Between the Yankees and the Indians. Was remarkable the Yankees coming all the way back from the dead again game one was what it was game two. Was an incredible spectacle again with Girardi in the eight to three lead and wage goes in they go all the way. Deep into extra innings in the indians' lineup with a win and and Arab majority is gonna get run at a town on a rail and busters on here without saying he's not going to be back as manager Arnold he still may not right right as in theory be back is managed reported this all changed. And so so much of that storyline certainly surround the Yankees was about their manager. And you could hear from Todd Frazier last night and so many others just how important it was for them to win this one for Joseph Girardi. As you're driving this one's for joke I'll be honest with you got a lot of criticism out there that's stuck again. You know we talked a lot in Hammond can be out there forever and a lot of criticism what has what it should know. Golf you know we came together as a team perhaps that is what this was a good result. And I just told us that we got you back a 100% don't worry about anything else. I know it took at all item. You know I saw what happened in immediate. You know god bless you got to come out here these figures just out that it's up and now we're gonna receptive I don't. You know I came out to many cities brought to make him a hug. Is that you know we are more more about the doings that you can your dog run we do let's go. And I used at the turn that page quickly the whole thought anyway we had talked about it thought like a rocket science to figure arguing that surgical put that part behind you now. What do dots for Joseph long term I have no idea but as far as this season and these players you turn the page and get to a team. You know that that it basically you know Alter pretty well during the season in the Houston Astros beat him five times. On seven this year yankees didn't really hit very well. Against the Astros so. They'll turn to that but. There has to be some feel good for LA in every clubhouse in every locker my said there are those that like other people and some that don't I'm sure that a lot of Girardi fans and are not the same every single player but a lot that felt for him when he went through already went through. And the mistake that he made on Friday night so. You know you kind of have that in the back your mind how much it helps or not I I have no idea it's not like the Yankees were going out to try and win anyway Carter's side 22 but there's some nice vindication is okay. We took care of that that over supper that opera anymore doesn't have to answer anymore questions about their season being over and is it over because what you did Friday night. And of that chapter turn the page let's move on correct I think adding there was a genuineness that you could hear all and a majors yes about how good they all felt real good luck. And you heard him say took a lot of criticism and he shouldn't have now you could argue that either way. One is that the argument on the side of yes he deserved all the criticism is. You could argue the pitching changes but every managers get great pitching changes and sometimes it works sometimes or not. You cannot argue that he shouldn't have challenged the the ball was tipped off the knob of the bat that was obviously a mistake. So that. He's worthy of the criticism now what Frazier saying is that doesn't mean you've been have to give up a Grand Slam right it doesn't mean you then have to looting got over the players still had the game to win even though the manager made the mistake and I think that's what Frazier was saying right right we re still had time and it's almost like you know. Yeah I still winning by four runs when that ball hit to breath a little bit the same Portman you know Portman would grab the ball but they saw a bald play after that right are of course well I mean you still have a chance to go author on the field and get it done. And that's exactly how would that a scenario here even at the missed the mistake the game wasn't over until it telegram slash am and let's talk about the Aaron judged that though that you mentioned their brief well I think the yet this whole game first first the whole game itself had 31. Strikeouts. 31 the Indians struck out fifteen times and the Yankees struck out sixteen time welcome to American League based yeah circa 2017. Yeah I mean just after its. It was the most in any postseason game that the guy extend into extra innings. So then you go to an end to let you go ahead and haven't errant judge struck out four times. Again yeah so he struck out four time. In three different games in the series. He had 24 plate appearances. He struck out sixteen times you know sixteen times in 24 plate appearances but did you put that into context for you. In the 1941 season Joseph DiMaggio came to the plate 622. Times he struck out thirteen times. So judge struck out three more times in this series. Then demand GO did in the entire 1941 sees him. Just to declare this series lasted five games. That season he played I don't know how many games he played the size it was a 154. That we had another one here Tony Gwynn in 535. At pad during the 95 season struck out fifteen times. So going struck out fewer times in 1995. Then judge did in these five games now. I'm not not get a kid this is his game this is a big game. Because he also had a few out of the park and they write critical elements up and that that's what he's paid to do and it also generally has a very good batting average obviously. He strikes out a lot of this series is struck at a ridiculous plot now. But the numbers are just predict out what that number remains sixteen strikeouts the most for any player in a single post season series of any line. No player ever struck out four times in a post season. Game as many as three times in his Major League career judge needed just six games this October. To become the first to do so remember. He also has a record for consecutive games with a strikeout was of 353637. Right in that area or an opera that number doesn't really matter I mean. You know it's right in that area so yeah but that is that's his game yet 52 home runs as well which are going to take it. You're gonna take the fifth I'll get your fate is horrific Jack buddy is going to be a great player for a long time and it. This is going to strike out is just check out at Honda and he's not going to be the only guy he is going to be the beginning I believe that he is the ushering in of an era. Of real big strong guys who swing the way he swings but we're going to hit a lot of home runs are gonna strike out a ton. That may be not quite as many home runs as he had to maybe not quite as. Many strike out as he has but I think that the next generation of big time player in Major League Baseball big star. Why is guys who swing like that in the gonna want to striking satellite that is the reality of a one way or another. The Yankees go on the Indians. Go home to what again I think will be a very very long and cold winter won't like it might presented by progressive insurance Lester over three million drivers Richard aggressive call or click today. And find out if you could say I'm so those are you weren't here yesterday for the Strasburg out because. It was unbelievable. Ike Ike are kept saying over and over again I couldn't think of another story. Quite like that won the tie on the Jay Cutler was being ripped to shreds. Live real time now during a game in which he turns out to have suffered a significant knee injury but is being criticized by other players. That was the closest thing I could think up to it. But you know we talked a lot about Strasbourg yesterday Borger and I know everyone here how are really taking my accused. On that from Teixeira and from David Ross right now as they can maybe there's something in this I'm messing with those guys had exactly the same perspective. The notion that he wasn't gonna play because he was wheezing after a half mile run in whatever it is one way or another with all the pressure in the world on amalgam credit for the voters said. I had a burger yesterday not having any idea he was gonna get the ball. Is that what happens now if he winds up you don't actually pitching this game. And Booker said that's exactly what the cubs want because after all this kind of stuff that'll be so in his head and political the other way shirt did he was spectacular job. I view viewers absolutely out of his mind seven innings gave up three hits struck out twelve changeup was working like crazy form. I mean he was just absolutely on fire as we mentioned. Ten strikeouts in the first start. So listen I you know where everybody went with this yesterday I'm. I've seen. I've seen the guys play their best and we've seen stories of guys that play their best sick you know certainly the Michael Jordan a flow I remember in and we played in the the Oilers one you're now is in Philly. In the house of Payne and and we made it they're also paying we drop so many of their players that Seth Joyner. Was almost about a sick as I seen anybody before game went out played had one of his best game you just. Musical play you know you just kind of you do you know you're just going to sue and and you already know you're sick and you're just going to give what you given to you can't give anymore and then. You know you're done. So all. That that that sort of why the notion that he doesn't gonna go out was so startling to everybody got an effect they get I mean look this goes now from. Is something that that if if he had not pitched yesterday they had lost something he might never live down right through something that instead goes a 180 degrees the other way it's now legendary this as the start even if they lose game five tonight. And just he's not naming a starter and I don't blame him. When they go to Gonzales or oracle whatever they donate Stroud birdied is jog yesterday exactly right this that this that that start becomes the stuff of legend now. Regardless of what happens. So you'll hear from him coming up in just a few minutes he was thrown back at the world and after the day he had yesterday I don't blame them.

And chatting with a here briefly it seems that perhaps the air conditioning of the mold has caught up with you sound a little bit of a snapple there did the Connecticut mauled a distant cousin of the Chicago bull that we noted gross affect almost yet. On all playoff series just ol' ball well whatever what an incredible stories that lets try and put. Into context the 24 hour stretch that Stephen Strasburg at from the moment they called that team because of rain two days ago and that's Tuesday. And immediately Everett Washington all it's a miracle hallelujah it's insane and pray for rain we're gonna get our picture back on the map and all of a sudden. There's Dusty Baker at this thing he's not gonna pitch Aziz under the weather it is. There's mold then there's air conditioning and all of this and then and then everything that ensued and then all of a sudden he get the ball does what he did. It's incredible and for the outside world for us we're going to look at this and say well Stephen Strasburg was shamed into pitching. You know we all kind of bullied them into this that the amount of backlash if they were potentially facing to the point I urge you guys bring up earlier if you go out last night and potentially lose that game without your best guy on the mound. If you're just two day course Stephen Strasburg Betsy stigma you never overcome. So is it possible that crossed their mind as is possible that. Actually through the course of the day. Matt and helped him that took their course and it actually gotten to a place repelled rather more likely than not but I'm not willing to destroy the good story that we have a dollars and if your him. Kevin Durant orders last year the only thing you can do was go out and be the best version of yourself on that team he went out last night and struck out twelve batters and looked like the best version of himself and that he did so it gave him walk out of room you know you know throw shape back after the game for sure. As far as proving himself by. I guess my thought as my canard because there wasn't here if I didn't hear everybody. My thought was just I wouldn't even. You could use Google crime plight right I mean through to actually say I don't think ago. I think struck a lot of people actually former athletes and current athletes a little odd it's the difference between saying I'm not going to goal and then sing in dusty Baker's name were not going to put Stephen out on the map right because those are two completely different things if you think he's sick to the point worried diminished returns and you're not going to get back. That becomes a move that a lot of people like that we're still looked at Dusty Baker sideways for but the very least has more understandable that you're right from that mentality of you know to go out take a little jog and see how this feels right around right now and also when he's not exactly sure about for the is not really gonna resonate with everyone else who just like. This is all you have like if you don't go to work work ceases tomorrow if this goes south for your team it's not like everyone else's job oracle secure short next week world still good to be clear ridiculous. Lee I had someone come over and asked me yesterday after it was announced that he was gonna pitched you think you guys are the reason I looked a little knob and I don't think a guy like him listens to people like us now. Two I think it is possible that. Within his own clubhouse he felt a lot of pressure and an end and that that might have had some impact on this I certainly think that's possible that's why they said before. I was listening to Mark Teixeira talk about this houses and David Ross talked about this. You heard Rossi two nights ago saying man I would be ticked and that's not the word that I'm used I'd be mad c'mon you're is that the time we want you to take the ball here I'd be mad. Two I think at some of that pressure might have or could have played into this certainly much more so than anything people like us or anyone else outside of the circumstance my and I think. The situation to Mike possibly win you. Where you say it may you have that conversation with your manager but then you hear it publicly it's it's put into words publicly and they don't like. Always him you know hole eight that doesn't sound good and beat 22 greens point of thinking and how we were taken a locker room you'd be like. And school give shock just go if you could if you are out there and just and can't do it okay at least thought there and and go as far as you can before we you know we have deployed off the mile well. Others like that sense of duty you do your teammate I remember marks clarity to always talk about. Playing the position of offensive line out of fear of letting down my other four guys that are around you there are so if that was the great motivated for Stephen Strasburg what better one in sports and the idea of not wanting to let the guys next you'd hear a Strasburg yesterday you'll hear the question about whether he felt he had something to approve. Steve given all the drama the past before ours is too soon you have something to prove in this game in the start to. Not to you guys mouth. Now he has created drama but you know I know. Like I said earlier you know I have faith and every other guy in this in this clubhouse and another coaching staff feels the same so. Weren't together and dumb when one guy goes goes down any got to trust that the other guys gonna pick up the left. Well the only it was missing that call the media rat poison like nick Davis ended in the words they say you know puts up less than when you when you get twelve strikeouts. And throws and check it out there that you laugh when people are questioning orchard mode or not to motive but. Questioning your reasoning for not want to throw in what would be the biggest game of the season Jim this all man I feel good guys feel worst for and every bit of this is Jon Lester. Jon Lester had such a career moment last night you thought it was as good is gonna get we saw bounce one over. Bounce one over to first base and the crowd gave him a standing ovation and you figured that she was going to be divested got we actually rose out. A runner at first base it was unreal overcoming old felt like years of this for him in a moment that. Did standing ovation for the whole crowd of a man at the best thing I'll see all my and now it's just a footnote in history it had a provider and member Chuck Knoblauch could get a from second affirm kind of cringe. You know little bit lots of Lester. It there's no move I mean he's just kind of lobs it over there it's nowhere near the base and Zimmerman is kind of in the air when he sliding back. And that's what gets a hit and and then they challenge it anyway got it was a good call what. Justice on what might just see look we're watching that together last several like oh my god I mean that. Some of your Zimmerman got that on your resume and I did Jon Lester picture off of first yeah exactly good to go up with the women out everyone gets to tell you about that the net daylight don't think we forgot about this man like Girardi however because they wanna gain out gets to limit down off. That Gomez treated last night around midnight. Quote recently retired big league pitcher just texted me with the following on Strasburg everybody shamed him into starting listen I don't know that I. Obviously. Obviously he wouldn't I am clearly someone tax and that. Whether that person knows that are just guessing that I don't know I am going to assume. That. If there was real if it's Strasburg felt pressured to do it. And didn't otherwise want to do it the that was internal not at all I think I was definitely by teammates by sense of duty in thinking about it by what's on the line yeah I'm. I'm not gonna sit here and say yet the media and all the tweets out there. Pushed him to start I wouldn't say I mean listen everyone can kind of empathize this I mean agreed tried to shame you into doing something you wouldn't bat an eye but the minute mom says to do at home you get up when you start moving because internal pressures what's going to drive and I got to go to Romero well there are also other you know what considerations but I won't be a while you're gonna go down that road tolerated here right well. Bet on that you know he becomes such a part of it here that I've completely forgotten sometimes. That there would beat that sensitivity when Obama and easier adapt. As an album I trust the process I got a half at. Hey let the wreckage ought to talk about hot yeah both my hands right there all you have you implied you basically could do basically took proxies and put it right out has charged. Mike and Mike as far as the Yankees and Indians are concerned that that's. You know. I'm happy for the Yankees and I'm thrilled for Joseph Girardi and that there's got to be something in this and all of us have made mistakes in life. And when you have when you can win it can be redeemed when it can be for all intents and purposes or racist from the record it sort of that your party faux paw if you will the mistaken mating game five in game two Friday night. It almost feels like you know there's there's sometimes if you get arrested for something that the sentence can be if you don't get in any trouble for two years it's expunged right this is expunged Friday night is out spotted from Joseph Girardi is right now I know I know about the X budget part of the process but I India yet no but. With with this yet it was one of those modes and just to hear Joseph Girardi being so forthright about I didn't it's easier to do after. Waiting in that situation but you still if you if he's true to his words I stood up in front of him my team it's made a mistake I screwed up. That's the kind of accountability we always talk about this because there's plenty of it this were coaches will come out point to any number of excuses or reasons. Besides themselves and how that resonates in a locker room where you demand accountability is the price of entry. And so to see that from him I think that's a good thing going forward with the team the young and ahead of schedule the way that we always talk about them to see that out of the leader in their clubhouse yet you always want. Some important workers field that is what if you found out what your finger and and are different degrees of agreed that we just saw over the last. How many days hellish war over when he treats the ball like complicate in left field you know he gets picked up by his teammates and say there's the big sure you know. I mentioned that tight and super not from the titans aren't by the goal line it grow at a first and goal against true. False starts in a roll back in his team up ten yards and then catches that touchdown pass so to redemption by teammates helping you redemption by U helping yourself. But either way you get some redemption it was a real genuineness though you could feel it in the Yankee players that they want to do that for their manager and I made me feel good I'm. To see that just as as some and we've gotten an Iowa over the years art Mikey is here got a bunch of football to get into as well as we continue to under your Twitter reaction big game tonight and a confusing situation. For team having the worst season hall. I in the whole league. I just saved hundreds of dollars by switching to Geico. I've never felt. More I've. Like Michael cannot guarantee you'll feel more alive you want to preserve functioning respiratory and circulatory systems or you got all your someday if you are indeed a brain storms on the and you would like to save money on car insurance look like a legal team applauds or excellent life choices even know shuffling afterlife but we strongly encourage you to visit Geico dot com or double the Geico at least a minimum of 500 feet away from our larger and presumably delicious delicious Morgan's. Geico fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more. You more tweets here 1800flowers.com. Twitter feed we talked about. The yankees' big comeback on the Indians about more on Strasburg here Bob tweet and I've seen a lot of this in the Bob okay their view by this for a second. Object I've thought all on this resisted diversionary tactic to get the cubs to prepare for someone it's kind of like not hearing are starting quarterback to have prepare for both are or someone who may or may not be you know the guy you think is going to be there. I saw that a few times as well. I don't know fumble that far I mean listen. In today's age of managers and coaches and sports and how crazy they can be. It's certainly not out of the realm of possibility to I think it happened here I I really don't let ice it I certainly couldn't completely poo poo. I'm completely are you yet to be it wouldn't be OK don't put this way if it was a diversionary tactic they went a long way into. Yeah all I don't think it happened either I'm with you I guess my point is I'm not above thinking that there are managers or coaches that would go so far as you do things like that. No I do agree now looking forward toward tonight where the starters undecided right you can definitely understand outlook aren't look what happened last time we named a starter early things didn't exactly go our way you are wise so we're gonna hold off now sound at the the old adage in making up the story is keep it as simple as ball exactly so you could if he really was making it up because he may be just it just kind of lost himself for the Hummer well maybe it was the mulled. Might have been the air conditioning guys give me a reason but it would have been simpler ways to catch this virus it's it's also a I just love it referred to as the viruses are now on terror doubters say conic con air is getting a call back here earlier and I kept cold or sub but it is a virus it's also worth pointing out that he had pitched game one in the series at the cubs had a ready scene and it was like that right wouldn't have known how to prepare oh my god David Oliver at. Sony to strike outlook now in two starts in this series again in game five coming up tonight also tonight. Eagles and Panthers guys which is a really interesting matchup between two teams you could argue. Have been as good as any team so far in the NFC this season games in Carolina what do we expect. I expect. I think continued great play from both these quarterbacks. Cars once has been interesting to watch in the development as Eagles team because obviously last game we saw Carson once. Go deep connected now snag our little bit that team without John Jeffries. Big a difference maker wide receiver but TCU. The protection he's been afforded to every one healthy and I understand Elaine Johnson. Idea attitude editing cut and I believe is is questionable going I don't think about it reply I'm not sure of the status going in and night. When healthy maybe the best at tandem of tackles in the NFL at this point. I mean between Jason Peters and Elaine Johnson. Those two guys you put tell Ian at center in the guard play's been battered this year that's been an area where they've getting getting wins that I necessarily haven't expected. Going into the season eagles' front seven to August usually on the other side by Albright I think the Eagles on offense this year that just as much to write home about. Either they have fourth in the league and Ross you know 138 yards a game time interested to see how they keep doing that because that helps so much you know they. That once passing too much with said the same thing about the giants when they were running the ball thrown to much. You be little more balanced and and they've had some ballots and their defense to step we're playing better than I thought they would. Cam does seem to be like he's forming back into what we saw. His MVP year Christian McCaffery I think is really get comfortable in that offense for those that were questioned how they really and use him in that style of offensive through the biggest receivers are on the game. Which is certainly acting can be trouble for defense so. I look forward to that site ordering complains about the third that I gained a little tired of hearing all that source say how this game is there's two really good teams playing well bouncy how they can do. Not for nothing Carolina's color rush uniforms should be magnificent. Carolina blue decked out all I like the color rushed I via duke got that right if you have if it's all white fertile lineman yeah I know that market's top but I understand in general the appeal of all white right Elvis so I'm won't I won't give that a past specially it feels lazy in the color rushed to go strictly all white to be -- to all white white -- -- do so why would you have less of a thought process for you -- like appear -- -- to do it at all white because you know it's actually going to really really looked bad it -- just look likes what went -- thought he had no peak periods were a lot easier for me when the parents -- gold beyond that it just didn't matter is a little darker shaded grey and black. In all really felt the same whites or white to tougher one to explain that when you might really at the slayer of the route used to tell them they're not mean to interrupt the part all understood. But the numbers on Cam Newton that I was looking at this morning a remarkable he's thrown the ball down the field. As efficiently as announced on a path is fifteen yards down the field or more as any quarterback in NFL. With with great accuracy they're doing unbelievable things off play action which is a combination guest. Of a few different things they're doing McCaffrey is part of that so what are we seeing in Cam Newton all of a sudden oh I think. McCaffrey's a good point because you watch what McCaffery not getting the ball emerges moving him around in the attention in the defense is our sending his way. And that's something we saw what Tyreke till last season and for very different reasons obviously the speed more a factor. But that was a huge reason why that Kansas City office started look different last year when you combine that I think just getting him back involved in the run game. What all of that keeps him more engaged him his. It is in many ways like he skill position player where you need to kind of get keep him involved in the offense in ways that he enjoys and clearly the run game is something the values we heard him sort of fighting that narrative going into the season. And so when you saw him get involved some goal line runs a couple of games ago you saw them use them in some well time spaces for this you can't major and it. But man if you have that as a minor league teams can invigorated in this office. And clearly. Whatever that's worth I think attitude at some point plays a factor in all this would dare plant on the other side's been a big part of attitude for the Eagles run game and two units at the same thing for cam and I Carolina a 1000% agree you. Can't change the way that this guy is a mutant on the field. As biggest key is can throw the ball and can move you can't take that away and say. Got the anchor we've got the shoulder we got to start to protect it might get one to do that got elect him to a camp does. You know I'm if it means it's not going to be this long career Soviet you know you're gonna get your best of cam if he's mixing up the run in the past as Mike's head as I said a thousand times. You can't that can't be your main course. You know it's got to be part of it but you gotta let him do his thing. Panthers minus three and a half tonight and go junior says is opt. I would probably take the Eagles were bad. They are more on the Eagles lose while these halt at the road teams on the east Thursday night games at a big disadvantage the numbers generally bear that out but. I agree with you guys and the Eagles right now are playing the best of any team in the NFC art Michael junior terrific as always thank you travel safely today thanks guys and get over that mold virus off. CT mauled semi Kirch and in the next hour stay there are Mike and Mike. Computer at you twelve point four. Optimizing algorithm running encryption I get help but tonight tonight. I don't feel so good what what is a computer if I didn't hear it feel hot air I feel a little clarity. I applied down doors something a computer with a virus surprising we're not surprising. How much you can do it by switching to go back out those oysters Rockefeller or a mistake Geico fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more.
