Indeed now the World Series starts tonight on fox of course.
Texas ranges vs the St.
Those two teams by the way all way outside the -- ten biggest payrolls so you don't need money to in the World Series now there.
Joining us he's the former.
General manager Steve welcome back to the show thanks for having me look if you can get -- the World Series with a very low payroll.
Obviously the performance of the -- has nothing to do with that salaries and that's not right well.
I'll say this where I would rather have payroll -- not have payroll.
But you can with good management in good players for forward to develop the players win that the mid league level -- the significant payroll that it look at the Tampa Bay Rays and that they gonna play up to the second lowest payroll all of baseball -- able why don't the tall -- is the Yankees of this will ultimately analysts ahead.
We don't need to be spending all of this money these guys were in the World Series -- and -- while we've seen some transition with that we're we're used to be that the large market teams would go to the small market teams and trade deadline.
Give up all of their prospect of a small market teams and take their -- league ready players.
What we're seeing -- large market teams there orders have said look if these rookies in these prospects -- winning brother teams while we keep our players are young prospects as well so we're seeing some transition.
But if you have the money.
Spend it that's what the you tell me how it is valid.
For the New York Yankees to pay a total of 700.
Million dollars to full -- is that will be a -- to share.
-- about -- -- about they're going to they're -- might be in the mix on managing well that that separate generally that million dollars on fall flat.
Justify that yeah well because they used to -- -- what next policy -- -- -- -- a large market general manager we spent a lot of money.
You know high to justify this because you can spend because you have the money.
You can spend it and -- and the reality is there is a correlation the better players do make more money now can backfire on you Alec trading logic is backed up play -- What well you know He was when they signed another that's the problem is you know everything's -- large market there's a benefits of that but but there are some negative took because when you have the money.
Suspended agenda mortgaging the future your burden look at the New York that's your hot see it -- Alex Rodriguez -- six years -- 142 million dollars right now.
And I gotta tell you what.
He's not worth eight million dollars that -- -- player that is and there are psychology -- work here that is if you spend that much money you think you have to hold -- the guy it's sort of like the lead the stock market strategy you tend to hold on.
To your worst stocks because you think.
Maybe eventually they'll they'll do better you know well the problem for these teams as you get these large market contract.
You did -- get no trade clause and so you end up getting bird and you can't get real -- -- -- with them right now you look at the He stuck with with Alex Rodriguez Texas I've been.
Gonna pay to get rid of him today they they did happen to an -- I know even last about baseball -- are fine englishman sitting here I know nothing about baseball but what I do know is I've heard of the Yankees I've heard about I mean there's a justification in terms of what I perceive as buzz as awareness.
I'm probably more likely to -- New York Yankees game because I heard of them I've heard in the player is.
There is and there is sort of a -- notching a buzz that's around it vs -- St.
Louis Cardinals He would have the -- me to go to one of those games so.
As far as I'm concerned it takes to pay these players because it creates awareness and it creates excitement and now get people to go to these games well it's -- lots of gains.
-- what is the value of the brand pride the New York Yankee brand is the strongest brand albeit for maybe an all professional sports so they can justify they've got the revenues to come in to do it but the Yankees -- at a critical point right now.
Because it doesn't just continue the cycle forever.
If they don't win.
And they don't get this intricate right now that you don't they did little playoffs in they've got Alex Rodriguez tied up that money sabathia is a free agent you can leave -- -- -- starting pitching.
The Yankees could really start to turn to go backwards and there could be -- as critical -- by the way has -- destroyed his own brand could He come back.
I think it's going to be very difficult for him because physically.
He's breaking down when you start to have -- problems in hip problems and he's admitted to performance enhancement drugs.
The connective tissue was the thing the starts to go get in that doesn't seem there get better He could end up really declining quickly -- -- they're gonna set a whole lot of money with him.
You have I think we'll see today when it hit is song line and the contracts as yet you get twenty million dollars a year so long as you back 300 with that well you know what big big league baseball and you do not allow contracts like that you've been -- -- no you cannot get -- for -- it's all guaranteed money that's what NFL players -- metabolic you know they can they get.
Not play well they get hurt they get caught in baseball it's all guaranteed money in none of it is based upon the quality of performance it's all based upon the what's your credit ratios in the -- that you're gonna continue to do it again that's why it's great vividly baseball player.
The greatest job of the world.
You get paid guaranteed money and if you don't perform well you know what you still get paid you could drink beer and learn Millard.
Hello when it bought back I figured might have a little rally beard here before out before the show this morning but I the Crawford my way at 1040 east and -- -- But now who's gonna win the Texas ranges all -- -- lose power.
Well a lot of people go Texas and they've got a very good team they've got a young starting rotation lot of left there's rotation of the great -- -- and a very deep lineup.
When you know it's gonna win Texas -- -- I'm going to go to St.
Louis Cardinals I think the -- are in I think it's gonna be seven gave delegates going to be a great series nobody may be watching.
Because it's not the most compelling team that you thought the brands are the best brands legs -- great based financing was winning seven.
All -- shall be watching it's on faux all I shall be watching producers justify -- -- and IBM on FBM I'll take a break up okay.
-- bonuses that.
Steve -- that was very good stuff you a totally wrong by the way but it was very good stuff well you know the cumulative but they get -- cricket is our -- general manager of the merits of these -- -- baseball has made make the highlight real what you did say that the Yankees with the most valuable franchise and professional -- -- marine debris that -- value wrong.
Mentions that united just a second.
Second segment helmets -- -- -- -- third fourth fifth.
It until you hit me -- you wanna come back commissioner who are out.
