At that Lee's voice so low or on the Yankees. A it is the pitching that slice of that they go out. Thank you wrote about Israel in this segment to go do your job might appreciate the baseball. It's important we have to get definition of the show if you're going to be on going forward we have to understand what we're working way. This. Tax that's okay Eric welcome I'm sorry to fit through that I. I was actually I'm. Yeah started so well in the first guys but he recognized he had all these years ago and here and this went all downhill from. And I I guarantee there. Haven't thought there was going to be more people. I don't wanna be part of this. If I have nothing to do it. You're here for white otter from fluid for the benefit show that one may be one of the TV evidently is a feeling media. Apparently somebody thinks they've watched you on to be. Overlooked is probably true we have a window here. Eric what's going over the Yankees that's what it was a restore money into the game we have to set the tone for the pregame show for the broadcast the big day of baseball. Weeks out through yesterday. What's your what's your feeling with the Yankees I gonna be awesome view I had this written right I had the post game being written about. This was the dagger Chris veiled digs the dagger and a little bit into the Yankees a little bit more. They've been haven't been good since what middle of June. They peak on June 12 or fifteen games or they I think they were like 30 over the Red Sox were 44. Yet so they haven't been good. And then if they lose yesterday after the terrible Lothian tonight. That's the feeling that you get here come the raise their go the Yankees but now we're talking about a different stores right. And it's amazing over the course of 62 games how many different narratives are presented by all of us that work at some point call for Eric dom because that is below the the Yankees have lost yesterday they weren't on our work done by nobody we're feeling good about the so do you think at some point a bad stretch becomes a year yes it's oh you know if they had lost yesterday polity that now round and then things transpire. Do. Then they've lost one point seven games there at the very start. Pretty tough eleven game for a few games today in the note opted three games in Minnesota Minnesota's still you know there there hovering above 500 a couple of games beat the street in four games in Seattle Seattle's street scenes and you guys notes and every one out there so you know you're you're looking edit challenging trip in advance of the tree dead line. You know if yesterday's 127. Laws and if you look you know if they go. The re an eight on the trip for 47 on the trip. Talking partners. Are authorized outlined a circular. It is certainly what it would have been a devastating season ending stocks. Lost. Now on him make those nations but you know all of the guys about afterwards said boy in our our sense of relief. An ex patient after. The ball before reverend talks the debt that you tired of the trade deadline. So I and other executives told another GM told me say he thought the Yankees were going to. Basically if the if the rest of the price is right fine but the nor can we go on their way to make the big splash because they have already exceeded expectations this is. This is better than they thought it would be it if it continues that way. Great maybe can add here and did you agree that yeah I mean and Brian Cashman. Their managers basically set on the record. Were not mortgaging. You know what we believe to the future it can rise to sound a lot better pricing of dinosaurs known black suit by super secret source a biscuit and it's it's. You know Cashman said since last. Trade deadline when they'd they sold out and Miller and Chapman Beltran and lesser degree on nova. Dad you know look were were were really focusing on 2018. And be on animals and 217 news is good fine but the real ideas to stock the farm system which is good you know high level prospects as possible. And you know let the young kids get their feet wide and then trying to you know. Reinvent terror reproduce the court were so successful them in the in the late nineties early 2000. They are not gonna change that direction. In the last something unless it comes from above Cashman. You don't they're holding out is another words if you know and in cash insanity that it can and it was a pitcher that they were interest. But look at the hall that they got from the cubs the Yankees were not willing to part with that level prospect package. In order and it died it certainly could help team this year and next year too but catchment for now once the hole on Guzman in the top prize taxes possible so. I think at the trade deadline for the Yankees it's going to be minor surgery more than any enemies perceive it. But that a cable is this team playing over head is that look at the offense in its second only to the Astros that you look at Severino. Would it be. Would they actually people should go out and make a move any you're not. The Yankees of all teams have been in position to contend. Most every year but. Would catch me passing up an opportunity shouldn't be I think while we're close but not enough. I don't isn't there room for pushing a little bit. Well I I think that you know when when the Red Sox acquired personal Cashman and his comment that took off like wildfire. On the Red Sox the Golden State and our members after in the winter meetings and now we are talking to him in that same interview session. And was asked about you guys consider. Trying to put that kind of packed together he said you know the Red Sox are going all they believe that one player world title we hopefully were at that point. And they still don't look at themselves has been one player one pitcher one reliever whatever way like the cubs were last year did that and they gave up laboratories won top fixes work for Japanese they felt. Chapman puts us over the top. You know dame to browse he fell sale puts us over the top. Cashman doesn't see his roster is our you know I was content war. TI I feel like you almost as though what do you like fix up your Severino you put Quintana in there that this group. Yeah he's done for the year that. Earned but it has not been good as a man medial. At. Three errors that night but he for the most part has not been good Jordan Montgomery's. He rookie pitchers. When it starts but he's been very good payments can be. Yeah nickname in. 111 do you read it on. Can be. It's strange named Mike Elgin was sport. Was it. Still people coming in. That's what. We've we've learned a lot about these scars that have star have an average relic winners will be in unit sales. If you speak to you she took with cash and I do like I think it all year. At the end today. There's more bad pitching. It. Good hitters and the Yankees did it I just don't think pitching staff can be fixed it well or made completely poll. One. You still want question marks in terms of guys hold out long course the holes. Ago. And so if you you know 234 top prospects in exchange for one guy. You know it. If he makes you fight games that are wild card spot was worth it. Think that they determined that case but how else primary for the managing general partner owners. You know what's important here and you know maybe the Yankees will shock you but that's not. Are we that we work. Up against a little bit and he was your best Everett Ehrlich story. When he intern for a sudden Tuesday showed up at Yankee Stadium one day in the middle you see your mean. July heat. You know little but it junior executive. The little white shirt and tie on.

Yet he needed and I'm not aware of and then. Proceeded to show me on lower part of it is neck and cruising. It would be indicative. In the evening. Really. Not a woman of the night with one big. Notice I assume was had a girlfriend are you today and head and a little getaway and and so that that was the biggest back in the culture. Really what time you like the Mickey's and a no I didn't that's why I work culture tie it was not a professional but walked in there with a poll sure that the control.
