That's not at least from some college town Roxy is going to be in the studio tonight we have a lot to go over. Susan saucer RA's insider from the San Francisco chronicle will be here. At 10 o'clock as the devastating news came out today about the gays and their new ballpark site. What the hell went wrong what is planned V. Where did the days go from here. We get a timeline for the first time. There's there's hope there was like this is this is how it's going to dull. And it's all thrown out the window now like hopefully she'll have answers. Michael lag mineral beer tent there it's not a little bit AFC's at the cal game. Cal game will be over about Bulldog a little bit about the NFL talk about chiefs raiders won't it is knots. On drop low in his first start Michael Ackerman from the Associated Press that. Is what we have going tonight. And have you been following it. Maybe you have maybe you haven't. I know he's not so much MBA nice when by the warriors we've talked so much about the niners so much about the raiders. But we are about to go into about a week. Where baseball's gonna start taken over headlines get ready the winner meetings from Orlando from Disney. And news is coming out today and if you're a San Francisco Giants fan this news affects you. Because there's teams that are making moves. To improve their international bonus money. Because they want a lawyer and the Japanese Babe Ruth. Tonight the angels and the Mariners. Each mated trade with the Minnesota Twins. They gave up prospects to add to their international bonus pool money. So they can be better suitors. For show way oh tiny. So this kid's gotta figure out what the heck he wants to deal. And there's a lot that goes into it. So you look at the Mariners they gave up there number ten prospect there number ten rated prospect. According to MLB pipeline dot com. And then the angels traded their fifth. Rated prospect. Each one of them got an extra million dollar stink about that. 'cause it's strange. Usually you come over from Japan and you're like you want me. Are I was gonna pay the big bucks. Has not only you have to pay the big bucks to the team. You need to pay the big bucks of the players but that's not how this is working. You're still gonna have to pay the Japanese club twenty million Matt to Matt. He's got to be right check to another friend another professional sport how crazy business. It's just crazy how baseball works baseball has rules like no other. Seared in her right at Shaq. To a Japanese. Professional baseball club. For Tony million dollars here ear a year ago we appreciate it we will all on the rights to this guy. What makes this guy so winter sting and so different and so knew he is so unique. It's just not the fact of who he is as a player. It's his age. He's 23 years old. So since he's under 25. He is subjected to the limitations on amateur players. Outside the United States Canada Puerto Rico. So after you give the twenty million. You'll sign a minor league contract. And a heat if he plays in the big leagues don't make the MLB minimum. 545000. Dollars. Which is tip money in Major League Baseball. Blacks he can receive a signing bonus. So where are we right now. As this kid and want to give them all the credit in the world he can't hang out for a couple years in Japan. Didn't go through this. And make huge money who knows. These kids are a hundred miles an hour he keeps it in Jack's. Owner hopes. Keys I'm like 200 million I don't know. It can be something crazy. But he wants to play against the very best and he wants to go now I applaud him for that. Now I do believe there's issues with him and I'll get into that second. Here's where we car. On what you can offer him. The leader in the clubhouse right now. Is the Texas Rangers so you know first for a lot of the big market clubs disposing this guy's a small town guy. Well it's going to be what year offering him from a standpoint. Are you go while him. To do what he wants to do which he wants to pitch and he wants to hit. The money's not gonna be huge she Gary knows that he's accepted that. But the Rangers are the leader in the clubhouse. They can offer him just over 3.5 million. Next is the Mariners. At just over 2.5 million. And you got the angels in third place just over 2.3. And then you got the others are these the teams that are in the running right now neo tiny chase. The other guys can only offer 300. Grand. That's the cubs. The Padres. And Dodgers. And San Francisco Giants. So how. Do you win now now obviously. This kid. Is not that it's not completely about the money. But. If you're offering him or you're telling him what he wants to here. And you cannot friend Mike. 2.5 million vs team that same the exact same thing in Macon dollar offer 300 grand. Carrying food and it's. It's still that's a lot of money it's a gallon. Over two million vs 300 grand is a lot of money. Now the one team. That they do say. It doesn't matter the amount of money they have 'cause there one of the ones that only have 300. That's actually the pod race. So the Padres have had this connection with his team. And the Padres because of AJ prowler AJ prowler I don't aboard even aged crawlers the GM. For the Padres. He used to be the international guy for the Rangers so he's sue per connected internationally. Stinks is a GM right now. In in the big leagues but. He he knows the international game Mikey knows attorneys trainer he'd try to recruit a tiny years ago he's up by supposedly. Did an and there are sing a net soon and this is kinda scary thing and I prefer the giants. You know you kind of wonder how's it gonna work. As we tried to lay out for you last night. Oh Tommy is a player. Who has never been a fight you know he hasn't done that the five man rotation deal he pitches once every seven days. So they're really projecting him to maybe have 2225. Starts may be some horror somewhere around a 150 innings. Which is not what you think of ace like starter he's gonna have to build up that scanner now I 150 innings are a little bit less. That's pretty standard Major League Baseball. The days of everybody going to 200 innings and well over thirty starts at. Now there's some organizations they don't even all while there guys to go through the blind to the third time like the rays. Other thing Chris archer. And it's it's going to be tough at times get you through the line at the third time there'd there'd there'd didn't guys that hates fifth inning you're gone. Cells that's gonna be more than Norman baseball's so really what he does. You know that that innings is not gonna be a shocker and you're probably gonna have to have a swing guy. Police for early part the year because you're gonna want you're gonna want a tiny. If he is ace like. Gil Warner to. Tight stops he could be your one year too you're gonna need him down the stretch again Neeon for the post season cell. When you start out the season you're gonna need somebody. And like we tablet you know cirrus last night from paragraphs. And the athletic. You know if you make him your actual number five guy to start out. Especially early in the season you can skip dumb there's the days off so he doesn't get as many starts early. O wants if he is this good. Once you get in to. We're prepared for the post season time we're getting into that Strachan baseball when you're not a since September our guys got to get the ball every five days. But can he do that. Can he do that and maximize his total potential. We never seen. That's when they compared to Babe Ruth remember when Babe Ruth became Babe Ruth even though Babe Ruth was awesome on the Red Sox. They bring them back to back years one like Tony three in 24 games and hit Jack's. But Babe Ruth became Babe Ruth when it was a pitch and anymore. How how are you working guy had to you know. How does it work carry you can't you can't be thrown all the time. You'll Wear out the kids are. Just a reality. You know it's not it's not like Little League where you can have he's the best player he pitches he hits he does everything in Al day it. We've seen in his light like Mark Kotsay who we all know. Kotsay was a superstar in college there's the golden spikes award winner won the national championship the college World Series. With Fullerton 95 I played against kotsay. And kotsay was an outfielder and in the ninety any comment blown smoke was the closer. That's kind of a possibility but then again ecology don't play every. So how's it gonna work out. Eat when your pitcher unique to have your side sessions that's where you work on your stuff especially if things are going well what you're an outfielder I can have side sessions. You can't be a pitcher and then throw in these the these strenuous throws from the outfield every single day. So then now what they're saying is well okay maybe doesn't play every day doesn't play the day before he starts is in play today after he starts Easter dinner was a hitter. We all not tough it is the blossom as a great hitter if you're not kidnap bats every single day. So to give him. You may have to say you can do whatever you want. What if you give him exactly what he wants. To sing looks. He may never maximize his potential at either war. If you've got to constantly hiding in a concentrate on being a position player any starter in Major League Baseball is that even possible. And number two you start worrying about the health. Is that it's say the minute the minute that fastball in because we're. We may be exaggerating until we see it with our own eyes what it really looks like on an everyday basis. But like the minute he gets on the Manny selling 94 people are gonna panic oh my god he's playing outfield now he's not throwing moderate. So. If you sit there and you'd give him everything he wants it may not be what's best for him too because they believe he's a better pitcher they believe in the end as a pitcher he can be a legit he can be ace like. So has act don't work. And that's why when I look at the list of the teams. Did you notice the three teams and because I'm looking at this news for the San Francisco Giants. Maybe a San Francisco Giants you wanna talk about haven't I held an off season. I mean you wanna talk about buzz because there's two guys right there's only two guys right now with the bus. There's two guys. John Carlos Stanton. Shelling out money these of the two name everybody is waiting. Guys like JD Martinez. Andrew McCutcheon. Eric Hosmer Mike moves stock yes these guys are all waiting for what these dudes are gonna deal. And hopefully something happens soon because it's hot stove hasn't gotten hot. The pilot lights out. We need to get that pilot lightly at its target some moves don't hair as a winter meetings are common. And their Ryder ramming widgets tomorrow and people are going to be flying in north Baylor flying in Orlando right now. They're right now fly in and they're checking into their hotel rooms it's go time baby. And Athens been happen. Well today. Yet GM's Billy Butler is a guy for the angels like do like I've gotten an Elmo over the years really good guy. These moves are interesting because what they have. So think about those three teams that have. Over two million dollars to offer and signing bonus. Vs the four teams. That only have. 300000. Offer what's the biggest difference. When it comes to a sell job proton. The three teams that have millions of dollars offer. Our American League teams who play with the DH. What do you do for the giants how do you sell them. How is your the San Francisco Giants. And you your Evans your Sabine in your boat she who's ever talking to a Chinese people. Howdy what what's your cell job. How what's the game plan that you say okay this is how we're going to use him. And this is how okay is he wants to hit. Any wants to pitch. How that works for National League team. It's pretty easy when you're talking about the Rangers. The Mariners and the angels. I'm the Rangers I can step up and say reacting give you just over 3.5 million. Yield pitch. Well Dragic as many starts is possible. And you can GH. The Mariners. Obviously he's got an a lot about the Mariners because Ichiro. And then of course the angels come to Southern California. Where the weather's beautiful all the women are beautiful you're 23. In the Japanese may brute. If you're gonna really enjoy life and guards Downey Orange County is gonna be really good deal. Yeah you've never been to a. Angel games. As much as we hate the angels and Mets and we hate to see him go to the angels Angel games it's a it's a good crowd let's just say that it's a very very good crowd. But take it off for the DA say you're gonna get taught at bats. You'll you'd be yet to play the outfield. Now the problem the angels as they've got that albatross called Albert pools that's their problem. So that's kind of where you start thinking about it okay. Hat houses truly get a work out is Albert Pujols cannot play the field. So that might take the angels out apply. So that's good it is let's face it for the a's don't want a seam in the division. So he got that but then you look over at and there may be a problem they're too. Ling and your talking about Nelson Cruz in the Seattle Mariners. So these two teams. They've got that they have their DEA agents. See that to me was the one thing that you really could say would be the difference. And signing this guy Iverson the National League teams. That might that I still keep the men division and that might put him on the Texas Rangers. So the Rangers he can DH. He can make the most money of the signing bonus. That might be the fit CI that that's to me. That's Woodstock here's you know cirrus last sign on the Chris Townsend show breaking down show AO Chinese hitting ability. Egypt behind you if you were to prospect that both you know both a punishment that to properly determine better. The pitcher would be the top three prospect. And the hitter would be more bottom end of the top 100 he'd be. It is a little bit like while Gartner he should run in the bank in a lot of rock power. But he struck outlaw and he didn't really walk though. Advocate or you'd say not that great like that and lot of raw power album that it tool. But they have a lot of but about and Decatur and India. If you are gonna start every epitome of the you know or be kicked they would ever going to be for him that means that the you have those days you're not connected via but it. You're gonna have to wrapped relax you know you're gonna have to do your recovery program. All the pitching at the picked up that would lead to a bigger not hitting you're not decades you're not. Thinking about it that that can put you behind the people. Fascinating this could be really fascinating. You know to watch a guy trying to be a big leaguer. Aren't as we said massive bomb garner should hit on an everyday basis. I think it's got to be it's. Fascinating to watch him try and do it. His best. To me his best possible chance is to do with the American League team. Nationally teams can lie to him. It's not. You can do whatever you want assigned to us why you play in the field he'll pay to be a starter. Just don't know how it's can't understand now how he's gonna do it. It's going to be quite a few days where he's not gonna hit and if united every day to be rough we all know that. I'd like this. I wouldn't mind CNET and and maybe that'll put other American League teams and because of what you have from the standpoint of the DH spot with the Mariners in the angels they've got their DH's. But that could be the role DEA agent starting pitcher it could be fascinating. I've got a guy who covers Major League Baseball. Does he think this can actually possibly work. Yeah. Now we're back decreased towns in Chicago on 95 point seven. Wow yeah I mean. Wow. It's just royal team has lost in the door it's not often. And night here on the Cooperstown until we get an in studio guests. Of this pedigree. And when night list up all the different places he works its its act act it's time to keep track domain whether it's. ESP and pac twelve network. A touchdown radio network Oakland days 957 game. College basketball show on 957 a game on Saturdays can't wait to hear tiger that is cal bears tonight. All right C Bernstein is here Scottie Pippen must've watched through that door. What the poll what was the final over at hospital you know you don't come in a hospital billion and take down the bears. Well that's it takes a dare to take down the bears because that's the central arkansas' nickname as the bears the bears ended bears beat the golden bears tonight. 9669. 96169. Act college basketball games. It by how we Jolo so it's only watch it through that door Scottie Pippen must've walked through that door tonight because he's the most prominent central Arkansas alone. And they stuck a tea. Mice wasn't ditty bring Jordan let them. He might have broad Bill Cartwright window that Steve Kerr Steve Garrett hi Jay is. That Bob mellow Livingston Bob known bright happy about that one. Show failed to Connie trying to figure out and you know his obviously the giants are still in the running now just talking about a dollar K. How could a guy possibly for search. And get to his maximum potential. If he's going to be a starting pitcher. And a position player. And I start to think about it I went okay. Maybe it could happen. If you were on an American League team because then. You would be able to DH you can start in DH you could do that but did so those three teams. That have the most money to give them for the signing bonus or all American League teams Seattle. Anaheim. And Texas problem Anaheim. EEE got Albert Pujols and then you got Nelson Cruz in Seattle so they already got their full time DHS. Yeah but they can be creative about this and I'm with you Downey that. In all likelihood it will be an American League team. Because I just don't see this fit for the nationally team because the day after he pitches you're not gonna put him in the outfield. You're not gonna subjected to that. So that's why. The Padres the giants I find it hard to believe. Dad. They can really land and then I think that a Tunney in his people and to be Smart about this in the DH. So he DH is located day before and the day after he pitches if that's it would they wanna do them. And then he starts and then again in two or three days in center field then they'll go back in this rotation. So I could see it working and then with Texas are right. What what do they do as far as did the DH spot because they've moved through budget guys what we've seen Sheehan suits you go in there. They try to get dull trade day or two off of brass stay they'll put him at DH we seem from time to time. Occasionally Andrus would DH. And they seem to be the most logical. In terms of the most opportunity as far as DH and pitching. But you've seen the these Japanese. Players have success in Seattle. With. Ichiro. Has his hockey go back so. Seattle could be the best fit in terms of making him feel comfortable but in terms of being. The player that he wants to be DH in play and after the pitching the Rangers might have the best shot. The it's it's unfortunate looks like he's gonna end up in the division of the Oakland Athletics switching over two weeks the two biggest existence and I could've made sense of the days. It really come up. Considering. Iran ideally is not there anymore. Well then. Is Chris Davis could be your permanent DH what do you do at that spot where it could have been an easy fit with the gays and you plug him in the rotation. Not sure why he Livni BA's early in the process but he did the other big name is Stan and until these two guys fall we have to wait for everybody else. I'm kind of at a point one don't believe anybody I don't believe anything anybody sand by the year connected to his people or not. Probably the only saying that I would believe. Is that Stanton is trying to do everything he can. To truly get the Dodgers and to a. That I hear that from the I touches people as you know I used to work for the Marlins I've talked a few people down they're trying to find out what's going on. On I think he's using the giants Diaz with the or at least the giants are nice fallback in case things don't work out with the Dodgers. That it appears every indication is he wants LA he doesn't live far away from Dodger Stadium grew up in Southern California. You know it's funny about stand as Pete Carroll was enamored. With age when he was then Mike Stanton has might when he was in high school as a football player US Pete Carroll's recruiting him to be a linebacker USC. And desperately want him to play football for the trojans but he made a decision to go baseball is a second round pick by the Marlins and it was. It was the right decision he was actually drafted by the Marlins and I was still there. So I remember talking to people in the reports and how excited they were about his potential. But to meets. I get the sense that you're right that I think he's using the giants in terms of okay this is my option to get out of South Florida and get back to California. It's not an ideal spot and I'll go verify half duke but it really want this I really want to be in dodger blue. Roxy mercy what is Yana Chris Townsend show on 957 regain and Roxy these contracts. They sound so good they sound so good no winner. They sound so good early in the deals. With so many of these big time deals and his deal is is A-Rod like. Don't end well. And that's. With the way the giants seem to be cautious about this because. But did we seen out we're pool holes to teary gal case still hitting home runs he's driving in runs. But he's not nearly the player that used to be an air it hurts me to watch him try to run. He at the end of his career in Vienna this contract the angels are there really bite the bullet. Because they're hand strung what else can they do their limited resource wise. Because they're committed a hand and certainly the money they're paying Trout which is well deserved. So okay it might be a good deal for let's say the first three to four years that if the giants do make this trade. And swallow up the 250. Plus million if they're going to have to take off the Marlins books. But when you're at the back candidates deal when John Carlo stand near as 3536. Years of age. Are you still don't want to have this contract and that's I think the internal struggle that Bobby Evans Bryant savient and Larry very dealing with right now. If I put chewed down the right field line instead Roxy Bernstein your run in the forty against Albert pools DB I'm winning no doubt there's no doubt. I'm not in great shape which is but I'm not in that bad shape Gaza EU. I I I put I think you went in a landslide I don't think it's close yes I would quit if yes it's so. And I've had this thoughts. That okay Jeter. This salary dump used wanna get rid of the sour so you know I almost. How's wanna look at stand like let's say a final as Bobby Evans. Or Brian same price more Brian saving us so much clout in the game. This is saying hey listen you wanna be here yes sir now he says Jesse you know I'd tell the only place. You're gonna waive your no trade. Is to us. And then I'm gonna tell them I'll take the money but I'm not given any prospects screw you I'm taken all the money this is all you can all you care about his get rid of the money and here's. The other thing about the Marlins. Is when you look at that team. I'm having a a hard time putting my head around that they're just gonna dismantled there's some talent there ghastly when you not to stand but yell rich and Ozuna. They have players. And so when this ownership group would Jeter took over. I thought there that we're gonna be more committed to winning. That okay now. Because they suffers of the Jeffrey Loria David Sampson error they can turn the page and get legitimate people in there who want to feel the competitive team in wins. But they're chopping is down they're doing something worse that Lori ever did it okay this is almost like Wayne hi is single level. What is going on right now with that organization because they're trying to unload everybody. And they're trying to go bare bones and scrap everything I'm not really understanding it and that aspect and I hate to bring this up. But you wonder it if the tragic passing of Jose Fernandez really set this in motion a long time ago. In terms of that we can't compete right now and we're gonna have to reload at some point because. Who would losing him the Marlins lost their centerpiece they lost their number one pitcher in an issue a pillar of the community. And that that organization to county is still reeling from that horrible. Tragic boat accident from night in a couple of well a couple of years ago and Derek Jeter being the golden boy. Mean they've they've done some really shady staff down there. Alan your read a story about that disk out news. Just had surgery for colon cancer and now needs that kidney and they fired a Molly was in the hospital there's finally a lot of long time employees. Jeff Conine a guy you know. That was a big part of their franchisees usher these guys up and did he look the entire TV broadcast rich wall is that they area guy. Who I've known forever rich got high we got hired the same time by the Marlins and they blew him out there making a total change. With everything down there and it's leaving a bitter taste in a lot of people's mouse and it's not coming from Jeter Jeter had a right they hit man do it right dizzy doesn't want to. He doesn't want a history here is fox sports Florida's decision again race publicity also blew out. Guys like Andre Dawson Tony Perez were involved in the front office is special assistance they've all been blown out. It is. I think. It's really Puerto see how they're handling this whole transition right now yeah the first time in his career. And it this this this year to there's anybody get a gift basket now that's my question there's going to be people come down his road for the very first time I do need to ask you because you have a vote. For the most prestigious sports award. Is that thing Ari wrapped up or can we have an upset. I've voted. No actually Chris comes in Shia. On 99 point seven big game. What a great things that I love like first I just love doing shows the view. This is just a damn busy. We always got the bill Walden line gag if I ever rusty burns in here with me be wonderful. Let's hear your busy guys so bottom line. Men to mantown a few are you are saying in here and here here in big demand. Before we get into the Heisman which you have a vote for the Heisman yup. Were you cool at the four pick it and for the play out. Clemson yes Georgie yes. Oklahoma yes. I guess with Alabama but here's my problem and there's a number of issues I have with the way things play out. Well what the committee did was they devalued the conference championship. In terms of Ohio State won nearly USC won nearly. And Alabama gets in they don't even compete in their conference championship game dating and win their division town. Yet here they are in the college football player out there he did the eye test sure Alabama belongs there but you know what sodas USC. And you know me out on the cal guys I can't stand USC. But. At the end of the day when you look at their resonate. There resume was better than Ohio State's. Yet Ohio State was fifth Wisconsin was six and as she was seventh I just I didn't understand what that the committee was coming from. I hope we're headed toward. In eighteen playoff. Where the conference championship matters all right you take the five power conference champs. Three largest Theres your turn to meditate let's go. Right there what do you think. Well there's all there's always going to be somebody there's always gonna be a couple of feel they got screwed well it at that point here after eight years you I hear you're left out I hear our rights to this year he'd be looking at. Here's a tough thing is that they they have to decide okay cool are the four. Best teams yeah is Alabama. Even though they didn't play in the SEC championship game are they a better football. Maybe not a bad maybe because. What you're gonna say is not accomplish because they they weren't in the SEC title game but are they better than Ohio State. Think probably our. Blank. With Al I hate that first off there's the unbalanced schedule in terms. The SEC. Plays eight conference games at pac twelve plays nine. And then the week before the Iron Bowl right you Alabama played. Bit like Mercer Mercer hit OK they played an at USC has never played an at CS team never. This a bit you look at their non conference schedule this year. They've played Notre Dame now they got beat badly by Notre Dame beat USC was limping nearer hurt going in that game. They're the only team in the country that didn't have a bye this year by the way US. It's like Texas and they played western Michigan was coming up an appearance in the Cotton Bowl sin Donald did USC play nine. Conference games three challenging nonconference games and twelve straight weeks and the only team in the country that could say that. Getting over to the Heisman. It's an interesting class. But I I almost feel that I normally I know you vote for I ask you about this every single year. I'm looking at this situation this year. Yeah now. Is this a done deal Laurie baker mayfield has he had the little controversy there against Kansas. Grabbing his crotch and then not starting a game but I mean the year he has had as he get is this going to be are annoyed I even need to watch. I.'s majority leader and is that I believe this is the 25 anniversary geno to read as you know luckily she had no so you got to watch for gene assay. And if you believe all the pundits out there in the prognosticators. That its data may feel little landslide. We're only seeing three people go to New York. In terms of the finalists between mayfield Bryce love. From Stanford and we're seeing Lamar Jackson who won last year the local quarterback. Here's what I can't disclose to you I voted for two with a three finalists there's one I didn't vote for. Why. Sold the three guys going history and I voted for pursue those three coming deal can you vote for you both for three Euro from one of these guys it involves so there's 900 and some odd voters. And highs in droves and I can I guess you know and I'm not Canadian I'm not going to and you can't. I I checked a box like they basically like a sworn to secrecy because the highs and trust and I I do value that if I. I did ask that I'd say you didn't vote for Lamar Jackson so. But it's it's interesting that. So those three are the ones that are going to new York. And again I voted for two with a three. By. This whole there's 900 in some odd voters out there and you vote for three PE three people on your ballot. So you every vote for first place gets three points from your ballot second gets to a third place gets one and that's had a total winners and they figured out. And we'll find out Saturday afternoon. Who is the highs in winner and it appears that it's going to be baker mayfield but you never now. As Stanford do and not because they're the king now runner ups. Does Stanford do enough to help their guys. And I narrow. Had a scheduling at times playing late does not help you know it doesn't but you know like. It should be a priority for the Heisman voters if you're gonna take your responsibilities. Seriously. And take pride in voting for the award which I do. You pay attention everything I know that's one thing I appreciate value I know that this means a lot this vote may just does India it means a lot to me it's Kristi just to be honored. To be a part of this group to select group to vote for the most prestigious individual honor I think in all sports. In a Heisman Trophy and I take it very seriously and I empty bowl games I'm watching an even if I got a game late that night I am watching. Games earlier in the day I gotta stay in tune with what's happening in college football. Because.
