Good morning welcome -- Tuesday. Pre fourth of July it is the second of July officially the calendar I know it's Tuesday and a fourth is coming. I don't know exactly when they history Thursday sent to a -- threat correct. Josh we're -- here is always joined today by our royal insider Josh first period studio it's the previously had Bob and Bob of course and now we have. Josh and Josh rightfully so good morning Josh are you morning Josh I'm not fantastic glad to be here thank you very much for having me and -- -- talked up plenty of royals over the morning today you've been harping about a kind of a key stretch -- The gauntlet that got -- just one game gauntlet that will make or break this royals' season -- -- -- and -- a drug like multiple lines in the sand. And I don't like over and over. But he had an out in the end. I think -- Now they're out no chance plot in 79 games and I've had three games were upset if they lose this one -- that I'm changing my win prediction right. No longer they have 79 when ballclub and luckily for the royals I guess their three NL in my must win games including. Sunday's finale against Minnesota so they. Every time you're ready to give up they keep pulling your back is exactly right I think a lot of people had that Sunday game marked yes -- kills three afford a bad team and it feels different when you win Alaska series to. No doubt you know -- kind of ethnic split. And okay it was is split it. Yet wasn't three of four and it was the last game so it feels like. It's got extra juice to your right if that Wade Davis implosion that we saw on Saturday happens on Sunday. And that's the last image in our mind everybody's. Ready to hit the panic button I think today but luckily that was on Saturday pick up the W on Sunday. And I'll come back home I think spirits are up right now with this royals ballclub most notably because of GO in -- low and the ties that opened up the season in Omaha. Those are the guys that are going to turn this all a lot of the rescue yes O'Neal would be relying on Omaha. For anything -- the G have this procedure now. -- -- 35767610. Tax -- but for you throughout the morning degree tickets Tex -- 69306. We'll talk up plenty of royals this morning also talked jeeves as we do each and every Tuesday and Thursday -- that this their statement. Well extent Friday will still care just Chauncey a threat fairway just talk -- -- to always try to we scheduled in 8 o'clock today Dan Hughes former chiefs wide receiver. 610 sports a -- analysts will join us coming up at 8 o'clock today. Also chat with -- juiciest sporting KC big contract. Re signed by him their inaction on Wednesday night as I mentioned that game already sold out on now Wednesday against -- Vancouver. We will also on top with Danny park ends of the drive coming up at 830 today get. His thought they talk to the pitching coach in Omaha yesterday you'll see they glean any insights on now. What's happening down on the the farm and why. Pitching in the month there's kind of an interstate. Story line there how pitching -- Pacific Coast League is it's -- difficult to all the ball parks are you know kept hitters parks and an accompanist spacious Kauffman Stadium dollars -- -- Dominique right weekend at home runs Norwalk that's the theory itself then they're out there then air out there and then now. Some other stuff to get to including gamers and mistaken Hernandez. A siding. Deep -- is rattling off the chiefs -- the light I think it's awesome. That is -- -- is pretty cool for cheese stands I believe we'll talk about that as well all coming up on the evidence showed today. But first. We haven't quite hit maybe that. By cell line yet you mentioned that the twenty game gauntlet which you have kind of kind of out there and the pre all star break -- and -- just after the all star break with a couple huge series following Ulster brake pedal too far ahead that. Detroit and Baltimore have two really good teams following the the all star break -- quite hit that. Really that wide demarcation in -- out but. Fans are. Artist's head over heels for the royals to making a bad move. And it's really kind of a -- for awhile and they we've heard the most is as the Chase Utley. Can you explain to me that that I don't get it. Others are not -- mean the name below zero o'clock the name alone is great. And the guys had some some histories had some success he could be available teams like. Everybody around baseball say yeah Phillies are going to be the -- opened for business. I do think when when everybody says every guys available on a team. That's not quite the case right. But a guy that's. Getting up there in age. Still hitting some home runs. Why is he so appealing to royal sand often. Injured as well that's true you make that deal you pick up the rest of his fifteen million dollar salary and Gracie yeah and there's no guarantee that it's. You release stays healthy. And it's going to be half a year rental if you do get a guy like Chase Utley -- the reason why royals fans are so enamored with them is because. You look around Major League Baseball when it comes to second baseman they're not normally the guys that can come in and and saved the day. Sure you have a Robinson canal when it Dustin Pedroia who are probably one and one day as far as best second baseman in the league. But as far as that if you're looking for a back out of that position it's going to be tough to find Chase Utley is a proven commodity. They're at second base what would it take to give a -- -- It is -- ready to wave that white flag because once you start selling off a name like Chase Utley that's saying we're giving up. So the question really is has the Philly fan base given up because if so that the ownership can go okay. Well if you already know of this thing is done as the Phillies currently sit. Five games below 500 the royals are three games below 500 so getting to look at that. Talk so much about being a buyer or a seller. So so often we get solely focused on our team well one of the -- We don't put ourselves in in their shoes out there in Philadelphia okay you have a guy that right now was still the face of your franchise I know. Ryan Howard did well Jimmy Rollins I guess can make -- case but when you think of the Phillies who still think of Chase Utley so that would be a giant step for them to get rid of them which means you're gonna have to give up -- pretty -- my question for royals fans that want Chase Utley is. OK look let's say -- hit good Chase Utley he stays healthy he gets ten bombs in the second half of the season drives and thirty to 45 runs we would all take it. Does it matter if the course seven don't pick it up. And of course seven being the guys that aren't going anywhere that are part of this team's long term future you gotta match. Catcher first short third left center and DH the only two open spots right now our second base in right field. So if you bring up are you make a trade for Galilee Chase Utley that means. Adios once again to Johnny -- patella it was -- nice job that one game that you played so that right there makes me believe that they're not going to make this move and to be honest I don't think that they ship. I don't I don't believe that adding Chase Utley guarantees this team a post season. And if you're going to make a move this off CR this trade deadline it has to be a guarantee. I'm not parting with any prospects unless I know for sure I'll make in the postseason in 2013 and I don't think that's the -- -- with Chase Utley. I believe that the royals front office is always had 2014 at least coming into the season with the James Shields trade. They've had 2014 is that -- season that's when we're gonna make our push for the post season if we have a chance it's going to be in 24. So I don't I don't think that they're gonna go out and mortgage the future for Chase Utley this season. When Dayton Moore says the answer is in my opinion nor should. I agree. And -- right when he says the answers lie -- I know whatever he says it's laughed at and people don't wanna hear it because while his track record speaks for itself. But he has writes if this thing's going to turn around and for -- nice to Sunday's win was. There's still three games below 500 there's still four and a half games back of the Indians and tigers in the tiger still. For some reason haven't picked it up just of yet just as of yet. So with that being the case. It's on arrests and Butler Gordon whose stock is an Oscar if they don't. Step I mean almost multiply what they did in the first half it's all moot point bring in whoever you want unless those course seven step it up. This season is is -- it's a it's a 500 season it's a nice building block for 2014. I think fest goes all worked up last week about those the answers lie within story that initially appeared on fox sports Kansas -- kind of backed up today at another. Article India in the Kansas City Star but. That doesn't mean that those comments weren't correct I Dave de worm and it banked a lot of of their reputation. Of their drafts of their resources. On as you mentioned kind of those those key seven. Who -- who are. On tonight's here's is -- -- -- does not there's not a vast like outcry to make a move those positions internally. Because those of the guys that they are clearly invested in as part of the the future plan. If I would have told you at the beginning of the season that -- that not a single offensive player would exceed expectations. Not a single offensive player would exceed expectations. And your three games below 500. That would probably snagged that right it would make zero sense that. That's me is is the most telling stat to vault and it goes to show you how great this pitching is that I mean if -- the most encouraging stat to. Yeah I'm looking for optimism yet -- and it hits the pitching which is offsetting the offense not having one player exceed expectations but all you need is. Now what three players exceed expectations in the second half and battle that. Well it is asking a lot but. Gordon per -- Hosmer would you be shocked if they continue the terror that that they've been on over the past while Gordon all first half and Verizon -- over the past month if they can do that. Well this team can beat anybody and they don't need to add a Chase Utley. When this office has four consistent bats there's not a team in the American League but the royals take the field against right they don't have a shot. I don't care who they're playing against as far as the starting pitcher this royals team when they're playing their best baseball can beat anybody major leagues. I am convinced that we are digging. In wanting to see things happen that don't happen here. I think that's all sports fans -- which which includes to mean for the royals fans. Making eight deadline deal. Making a deal you. You normally wouldn't look to put -- in the headlines I think we had that we kind of had a break we've kept telling the mini breakthrough is all the time you know. Spent that five years 55 million dollars on -- -- few years ago I had never done that before. A bomb went out to a couple of risks on bats have never done that before. Made a big trade this past offseason gave up. Prospects with some talent for. Established players have never done that before and I feel like we're getting to our. Boy never traded for a pat in the middle of season they believe might -- your race. Mold and they should do that because that's what other people deal I think in this instance it's not the right move to do there's not enough. Return to. Or potential return to make it happen more -- at least you mentioned injured front as it. Hasn't finished the last three seasons he's not played a full season -- -- -- further in that but then. -- 150 games is a full season cranked chair now playing all 162 isn't. Doesn't it that's a tough that is out of you know 113. And you know it I think there was the plaster -- eighty some. And this year starting this time too so he's he's missed time the last three years it's got the no trade clause. 21 teams. Beat the royals are one of the ones that's not. And let's assume now -- he's used to it you wouldn't bother assuming now so we have to wait a minute trick deceit thinking -- contender. Really. He's got a -- so it does he think Kansas -- a contender probably. Well no nor is that is that a destination he's probably circling -- saying you know -- I'd probably -- do that. Now. He's expensive. Yes he has more home runs anybody on the royals in in in this season which he has played the entire season. All given that but 34 years old hasn't had a full season in the last four. Only only do I make this deal that the Phillies are interested in. A non pitcher for the miners. I don't treat any pitching I don't I don't care none of them had developed over the someone's going to right you'd have to get law of averages you have to get something out of my league system pitching wise and why. Allow somebody to take your top what you believe your top in the minor leagues even though again. We haven't had much track record of seeing those things develop so to me it's -- it's gonna require a non pitcher from the minor leagues. And something out of the bullpen which I think they have some access. A little -- era and then Emilio Bonifacio you're you're really think that's feasible to get something like that done I don't know another new line. Your point I think is a 100% correct in. Fans wanting it because it's it's a part of this growing up process is a Major League Baseball team and as a fan base I think -- assault with a achieves this off season. Have a Andy Reid it was just. Well and that that's a name you know. Even though you've had names in the past with her meal and Herm Edwards it it just makes it feel like a player again be validated element right now fans that wanna go get donated to the big boy table yet fans don't wanna -- -- get Chase Utley to me it reminds me of the sixteen year old that wants the really nice car right out of the -- you don't need. Just take dad's old beater for awhile drive that around keep your feet wet learn how to drive. And then maybe next year if you save up your money you can go -- and get that nice car and media have come. Give a speech to my kids in like ten years I would need -- Happily at all happily do -- you play the badcaps forming an exotic pet like 500 boxes something teach him how to save some money shark when they're behind that car but. Now to do it right now the only. Unless you're guaranteed one of those postseason spots I mean had. He had four consistent that's the past month and a half an offense looked like it was turning the quarter consistently not. Once every three games twice every five games like we've seen. Although I don't feel a little bit more comfortable because I'm fine trading away prospects of its gonna put a banner up at the -- Because that's worth it because you're fans that turn out in August and September and hopefully the glass family takes that added revenue puts it back in the ballclub. That's how markets like Kansas City are going to win gets got to feed off beat feed off itself that Tallahassee to work so the plan needs to be. Stay around 500 this season. I know I'm sick of saying it but hopefully people by and season tickets go up in the offseason and you can make that all in push next season next July. Around the trade deadline if you are one player away from postseason play do they stick around 500 they sniffed at one time in the month of June got to 34 and 34. And now just been kind of in the same boat that there in three forward that neighborhood below 500. Is that. Is that around 500 -- at stills kind of scratching and clawing and trying to be. Five on yeah I think they're gonna scratch and Clyde I'm still stick with 79 wins for the season but I -- I think this twenty game stretch. Whatever they do here is what they aren't they go above 500 I think they have a pretty good shot of being above 500 if they go to an intent. I think they're a 500 to a few games below team if they go. Seven and thirteen. I think we're looking at 75 to 79 when ballclub that. I understand it's a marathon not a -- and twenty games is 118. Of the season. But to me you look okay they're all against teams that are above 500 all against teams that are in first place or went the post season last year. When it ends it's the 26. Of July 5 days before the trade deadline. So it's not as if you're gonna come to the end this twenty game stretch -- OK we're at it let's make a move. If you're going to make -- move it needs to be soon. It needs to be this week in my -- -- than those that that could help that during this twenty game stretch. In my -- gonna wait it out if they go below 500 they're gonna say well you know this isn't the year. We're just gonna ride with what we have. If they perform very poorly over these next wanting. I think you could wave goodbye to Ervin Santana. If they performed very well over these next twenty games I think they'll add a -- not a big name -- but somebody to come off the bench. I don't think I'll make it too much out of just wanna game stretch I think that this dictates the season. For the royals and it begins tonight out of the Kagan the first place Indians and get -- he was it worth going or going for it for a one game. Playoff I hate that one game playoff and tips and it's which is a series and I'm not gonna wanna you only the seas anymore because -- come right believer of the baseball season is way too long already. But how much she gamble. But just a thing just to give in what's the hallmark of this ballclub pitching. And then I think with. Baseball's post season is also -- favor the royals yes that are. A series of fear of the rose better there to get into a pitching Indy series to get that yet you do have to give that one game sorted yourself an opportunity get. Into a a series after that so there is there is that balance -- feel like. -- push you push everything in. For the possibility of one gamer balls are out there there -- this division you know in your -- throw a wild card if you choose to. To be honest just I think the division has to be the goal for some reason to trigger fuses to runaway with that you look out in the American League gazed. And the blue jays are 500 and in dead last eight games back I don't see anybody in the American League central. Good enough to grab a wild card spot from either Texas or Oakland or one of the fourteen to the American League east so it's really the division or bust. In my mind and I think it's more than likely going to be boss not a bad boss but somebody -- wins that's an improvement. What seven games. Over last season. But I will say this as far as risking it off of that one game playoff it is worth it because you do have the pitching and defense but. Let's say you you get that one game playoff just hypothetical one game playoff against Oakland James Shields on the -- You feel pretty good about that -- feel good it was shields and your defense but. I'll I mean are you gonna be able to get shields and -- I mean that's the problem and then that goes back to kind of backed the point of fans that want to bring in the Chase -- this is the three of these are the three weeks the month of the season where we all play GM but nobody wants that job nobody while shows that there. With the red phone ago we get a wave the white flag or not that that's a tough decision and I think it really. The make or break decision of -- -- general manager career here in case it is Josh -- rails in Sadr joining me Josh -- there in studio today it is Vasco in the morning on a Tuesday coming up next. I'll list of available players and targeted stops there's a bunch of guys available. Are any linked to the royals will talk about the next 610 Sports Radio six cents sports. Welcome back here at its best till the morning on a Tuesday Josh went there with you along with our royals at center Josh -- today 9135767610. -- -- -- for you. 69306. Will play a little ask for -- coming up at 7 o'clock. You'll feel all heroes questions were to have a bonus -- an -- playing as well groomed and we'll talk Jersey questions I gotta I got a couple more yesterday. I've got a few do's and don'ts. From our from our Jersey fashion list all like to say I'm not the arbiter of this I'd just like to compile everything. We're continuing to. Tell ourselves so we can and cannot do also Kansas city's -- Talk more about that coming up at 7 o'clock I want to ever. -- Kansas City. From the -- like 69306. Sign Manny Ramirez -- right field well I'll. That Brinkley texting and now be lower risk would it mean one would take to bring him back over nothing -- 90 and I don't know yours either although it's funny to watch is in Japan her. Glad you are an -- learned to study suggests it's just great to watch like his home run videos from -- you know. -- crazy it just looks like it looks like gay. A a fake. It Japanese game show -- what -- but what's it out there you know he's actually hitting home runs of glass but they've made it look look like he has in the shows this culture. Deadline discussion -- kind of reminds me at times about. Light like All Star Games you know people are upset that a certain player did -- make the all star game more. Fans are upset that a certain player won't come to the royals. My question would be is if you do have a name out there you do want the royals to bring in who goes who's that guy and the 25 man roster that you Janice. That you say are right it's been real. -- never okay yes I wanna add another back who do you get rid of because now. I think the 25 man roster is that current lease is set up. I think royals fans like. 24. Of the 25 I don't think they really have a feeling a JC Gutierrez with all due respect to -- JC. But outside of him. There's not that Jeff Francoeur there's not that Chris gets any more where it's -- a very well. -- care I don't know -- always move on now so they'll single direct who they are not directed at somebody. Out of the bullpen maybe -- would be the guy yeah coaching American still. -- any moment I mean if he goes bad but Will Smith this right now. Training to be the new Brewster. Mean if there is going to be a movie it's going to be and a and adios. To our divers -- I think he's the next goes something and it's kind of lean that direction. Ma the royals organization is always -- next year's a year or do you really believe 2014 is the year it has to be if not you got to. Blowing up -- done I think you got to restart because. Look if you don't make the playoffs this or next season in the Wellemeyer straight to me was a failure or what trading -- draft picks instead of prospects he can't do that baseball right that was secured. Be much easier to make deals I think a baseball needed. Giveaway -- don't know what you're gonna do with them they also don't have as much value. Right so yeah you can't do that fortunately what about -- but -- is Raoul -- so cool idea. So I believe is about to eighteen bombs this season it's a nice that'd be a fantastic power bat. He would come more than likely at the expense of David -- Who sending them -- back down. -- back down sure I'd say yeah I don't know he's not going anywhere but he would get -- order on deal and that that I would have probably. No another what I what would you have to deals. Role upon yes solo home runs it would be nice is anybody going to be getting on base in front of them or when he does get on is there somebody in this royals' lineup that can drive and then. Again we can we get at all we want to this royals ball club but all that matters is -- course of it. They need to step it up but I I truly believe I still like all of those seven. Maybe I'm naive or have my head buried in the -- -- I'm just. Slowly bombing a diehard royals manager not now which I'm -- -- -- already get away from any in unison they're all young. Or and a couple instances Butler and and Gordon -- and -- feel like -- track record and they're gonna bounce back in the other ones too young to. To write off at this point and I think they're good enough to carry. I think this offense as it's currently constructed. If guys just played their potential. That's good enough that's good enough to compete in this American League central maybe it's because. I'm around him too much and I see the good and the good to me outweighs the bad. But if these guys are right -- Hosmer Gordon president Butler can carry an offense can give you. Five runs a game -- for. You before half for of the game -- this team is going to be a juggernaut 127. At five now. When scoring four more runs good lord. From the -- like 69 threes or six is Ned part of the 25 man roster now notice that there that's ready that's for the yanks now now now. You remember the 25 he'd -- again they'd -- point and you know what I've I've often. Maybe what after covered for -- I guess because people blame them for everything even though I think it's bad on the offense it's been on the individuals like your -- do your job. A lot on the other country mark calling Joseph because that's what guys are not doing as a lineup. Score more runs -- better yes do the little things that win baseball games as George Brett about it. But. These 2 morning games. If there is that one managerial mix up. This is a stretch where I think you can judge the manager I often say managers only really make their money in the post season ended September. That's when I'm outside of the clubhouse because from the start of the season until I would say late of August late in August. All that's real job is is to make sure the chemistry and the cohesion is there inside the locker room to make sure it's a good atmosphere. Over there at the K but I picked this -- game stretch we can put the the spotlight on medley. Also the tax line we've been in this saving our money for thirty years to buy that fancy car now I understand and understand as I mean he still. All -- on that fancy car right now -- -- figure out if if it's time effort in the garage. Nurture nurture that's time aren't Jay Jaffe of us Sports Illustrated came out his. Trade deadline watch top targets each position. I love Jay Jaffe by the way on on Twitter because avatar he's got like a mustache he looks like Ron Swanson from parks and -- What all of your bacon. He he had an SI -- every time I see it we turn -- laugh because as avatar so great it's actually him growing a mustache. And that it it's easy dead ringer for around -- and I've told that four -- so. So weird looks -- -- on the street today with a mustache you this week to dress up for two B 4:30 in the morning and have a mustache. I drove. Quickly away from that ambulance rays starter is deaths don't run that. You know here's how here's how he describes kind of the -- -- cell line at my finance should be following an early attempt to go around the diamond identifying the top trade candidates each position. Given the general tendencies come into play at this time -- year most of the key players dealt. Will be pending free agents who are all that likely to resent the current teams expiring contracts. -- generally below 500 at this juncture. The exceptions to those rules of -- player signed beyond this year and those on team solidly above 500 will constitute some of the war outside the box trade candidates. Will be worth a closer look at a later date. Specter emails me sites he says -- that description. Ervin Santana should be on this list. Yet according bad below 500. And a team that has an expiring contract. Don't think the rules are there yet but there will come a time will not have to decide. If there if he's on the -- or the coveted right. Trade deadline guys I I hope it's I hope it's the -- but Woolsey. Our grocery curry is the Phillies catcher as again the Phillies on the hot name to be dumping players have. A -- yankees Justin Morneau of the twins. CF the twins -- the White Sox who -- have players on this -- listening could be teams that dump too. Now that helps or hurts the royals ER playing a lot of games against those teams coming up in the second half -- teams out of it. You feel more confident getting wins against them maybe I don't know it always turns out that way or not that teams going at it. Teams team's tank and it should be automatic w.s in focus. Well they should believe canceling and that soon -- sweep and win every game maybe not quite case but Justin Morneau the twins could be -- that's that's dealt. The Yankees. Again. Yankees Boston yankees bought you know all these teams are as familiar names are the ones that are out there for the -- a Chase Utley of the Phillies of course at second base. He -- the morial says the the best -- I don't disagree -- got that infield would be yes and that's a team again that you -- 500 barrel last in the division but everybody the east has ever reasonably they are contending. They have seemingly all the money -- -- do those things which Chase -- be more likely to go to the Orioles -- the royals. I would say the Orioles and Toronto actually dead last. -- -- in -- idea but 500 so. Via disease just outside of first place in the Yale -- ridiculous division a brand Ryan shortstop in the mariners' cardinal says the best fit there. So again these familiar names of teams that contend that also have money. Yet you're one piece away from being that the perfect team is close to being a perfect teams you can be. Michael young and the Phillies in other Philly are Red Sox or yankees as the best that. Now left field Michael Morse the Mariner's. With the reds being the best -- -- possibly the Orioles Jacoby Ellsbury the Red Sox could be available. Com US that's that is giants Marlon -- Marlon Byrd the Mets. For right field. But best it's reds giants Orioles DH Kendry Morales of the Mariner's. He's saying pirates are Orioles higher. How pirates team player where I talked to. Kevin Horry former cubs. Infielder who's now -- pre and post game host of the the pirates. About how to how that team is doing what they're doing now -- bums you out there leading the central they've got 51 wins. They have exceeded expectations. At a lot of positions are on the field. And then David -- and their fan base for years now. I mean at least for the past 23 seasons of being in it at the all star break in the nose diving afterward it appears they're not -- anyway this is -- a team that's also though as you mentioned kind of over achieved. Don't yes and -- got players over achieving which is how you -- -- you've becoming surprise. Are starting pitchers do not include Ervin Santana at this point Matt Garza the cubs. Are -- in Alaska the Marlins and a relief pitcher Jesse -- of the White Sox you hear those games are at least the team names that the best possible -- So the usual players yeah I mean Morse to the reds the pirates the cardinals. That just goes to show -- look at those teams are talking about making those kind of additions. That would make them as close to being the the over the perfect 25 as there and it's in Major League Baseball in new. Put that in juxtaposed to the royals currently 25 and you talk about exceeding expectations and now. Nobody would this royals ballclub currently is it just shows you how many things need to go right. In the second half how many guys need to pick up their play how many guys need to have almost a career second half of the season. For this team to get back into playoff contention it's going to be -- one hell of a march if they're gonna get back into it and if you're comforting going outing getting somebody. Look at those names. Those of the usual players who have a lot of bank yet and do something that your team normally doesn't do teams like battled battled those teams for. -- players. -- very unlikely Baltimore Saint Louis. The third big league club is pretty much sat for this year next year years down the line more willing or able to part with. The young prospects because they're not going to be as heavily relied upon in the next few years as much as a you're Donovan terra. Might be as much as a Calvin Herrera hopefully is over these next season's Saint Louis they can make you waved goodbye to a starting pitcher because. Good lord to have six or seven -- so you're also not only created and on the field but these golf clubs. But as far as for the future that they can part with more than you can and be fine with that not only because their farm system is built up but.

Using the royals hash tag it's others just. There's stuff in its managed via its artistry tweeting yeah ha ha ha retreated once and that's gonna be like yeah yeah. Lead the royal plea completely completely -- -- well senator I have no idea to -- that carefully -- care what's what's at a teacher -- -- -- public. Good thing you know but when youngsters deliver I get jealous last night it was price are. -- -- It makes it worse nationals radio network on the call just off the DL Bryce Harper. There's something you didn't have a slow wait to get in tickets cuts. You just it's a home run is first at bat back I want to dislike Bryce Harper so much the bravado that stupid I black thing used to do. But the guy is as much of a throwback as there is as far as -- as concerned. And if you love baseball you have to love -- higher -- -- -- -- -- can't leave them sign. I'll like -- like -- I can't stand the young man and I I think but then it has an -- CNN I think I think. But I love the way plays the games I gotta -- and brightest and tightest it's like young players that come to the end of any album. These and many lit shot I was doing and Baltimore where he gets you -- him my -- -- side. Kept rising crazy. I guess Mickey mantle's out their play for the angels now -- trial like can't we you know get one of those. Houses and stuff that doesn't and a self breast.

And that's your Anthony plumbing heating and cooling key play of the week nominee. We will allow. Put those on our our FaceBook page and vote on not Thursday and it will tally of the votes on Friday for this week's key play of the week. Nominee. Takes you hold David -- the response yes it does does we have a thorough vetting process and does some accounting group from a guy. Has there. And it has to verify the results. Before we are allowed to speak throw and now when it's out AT&T. Exactly right our top ten list today. Aaron Hernandez based. I was thinking -- If is it time now for a longest yard three humility and call longest yard two longest yard -- was longest yard to do as a remake of these yeah. The original one. So is it time now for longest yard three. But the reality show may be I think we have enough players to field another. Mean machine right the team to win the Super Bowl. So -- top ten cast members to another longest yard. 69306. On the text line today. Think we have enough to fill at least the starting eleven. Once of the football. I'm put that team together and I had a right now is pretty good that's good clubs got -- pretty good -- top ten -- were real that coming up at 850. Got me thinking would you rather. Which would you be OK I guess having a knuckle head. In the wake of Aaron Hernandez. And obviously they see a -- now -- go well. I think there's a knuckle head to him but knuckle head out described as Sony's these kind of like. Has done some. Maybe newsworthy things what is pretty innocent. But -- Ochocinco or somebody or somebody now he yankees he crossed that line day vs somebody that's obviously Aaron Hernandez is drawing headlines the reasons and is facing. A bad bad situation in court I'm thinking like Mark Sanchez. He's been. No pun intended the butt of jokes but a lot in in New York for being just to kind of -- knuckle head distraction in his latest one was. Him dancing with two. -- girls he met at a club this IDC the video and I smoking that they're smoking electronic cigarettes and dance around their skin only closed the girls are but he's. John singer yes. And football yet man you know we -- what people smoke it is Condo a guest there I you can come in here and party you want just keep the smoke to minimum. But he is allowing himself to be photographed with a with a cell phone and he's dance around these girls these -- pants around his ankles at home and today bend there just there -- just heard showing he had to its June 2 women. -- cat okay in the grand scheme of things -- okay with a guy just makes them like bad. Minor decisions I mean that's at the smartest thing in the world to do but it's not criminal and it's certainly not. Anything more than really a distraction. You have to take your age into account of he most of these guys that are under thirty. And I know I'm not thirty at night on -- still a complete moron at times they had I'll take a postal he can play I don't wanna. A criminal. Yeah yeah gimme that dole give me the guy that's canoe. Now you can that's funny quote you're downplaying like a guy being kind of but I even -- Duane below that category for awhile like people like -- really. Frustrated Baghdad Michael -- you always. Harmless it is a suspension for taking something he should -- off of Graham -- medicine cabinet or whatever that that turned out to be you know -- There are worse of top that's good justification evident there -- -- I think in you know Mark Sanchez just. -- makes bad decisions but he's not like tragically bad. He's just kind of a knuckle -- well Andy is a former teammate Erik Ainge back -- court -- the jets -- 20082010. Says that he's he's just a database -- or judgments he says he wants destroyed a cell phone after a woman use to take -- photo of Sanchez streaking in his Condo following a jets -- 2009. So age is there to like save -- just from himself. Quote he's been the targeting college and now he's a target in the NFL. Now it's become a thing try to catch mark doing something stupid he's never breaking the law. And -- it even says look at Aaron Hernandez mark Sanchez's child's play in the NFL as far as the off the field stuff. I know as good as anybody what mark does off the deal is child's play he's -- about it. He's stupid while being stupid. You have to be Smart while being stupid and he's dumb while being don't -- look at that but video. He's somebody trust is there when Marc wants to go streaking through his own Condo. So he's got to needs an escort through life rather than eight. Parole officer or hire an attorney maybe this is more about Mark Sanchez then then that dumb stupid goofy athlete. But sometimes that. Ignorance. That is on display at times for Mark Sanchez that carries and a practice that carries and two film room. And that's possibly why you don't see the improvement on the field so yes I would rather have adult that a criminal. But I'd rather do with elbow sure right -- -- is OPEC can't get better because he's such adult you can live with the distractions but yes if the Dell could focus on football you think you redirect me diesel to better it. As job at hand again. Coming up next -- play a little ask -- bring him your baseball questions on attacks like 69 threes or six -- on Twitter use the hash tag ask bird.
