How's your mental health?
I'm listening with Michael Phelps. You know, I think for me in 2014, when I found myself in that dark, dark place where I didn't want to be alive in those four days when I was in my room by myself, I wanted to find a different way. I wanted to find a different answer. I was sick and tired of feeling how I felt, and that's why I started to seek help. And that's when I checked myself into a treatment center. Join us for Odyssey's I'm Listening two-hour national mental health conversation, Wednesday, September 21st at 6 p.m. Talk saves lives. How's your mental health? I'm listening with Michael Phelps. You know, I think for me in 2014, when I found myself in that dark, dark place where I didn't want to be alive in those four days when I was in my room by myself, I wanted to find a different way.
I wanted to find a different answer. I was sick and tired of feeling how I felt, and that's why I started to seek help. And that's when I checked myself into a treatment center.
Join us for Odyssey's I'm Listening two-hour national mental health conversation, Wednesday, September 21st at 6 p.m. Talk saves lives. Okay, I'm so excited. It finally happened again.
Albert Pujols finally hit another home run. I don't know why I get so jacked up about it. Actually, I do know why. I shouldn't say that.
I know why. I want him to get to 700 so desperately, and time is dwindling. I wouldn't say it's running out. We're not to the point where the hourglass is running out yet, but time is dwindling on his opportunities to reach that baseball immortality, that rarefied air that is 700 home runs. I don't know if he does it, but I am here to cheer for every step he takes closer to that number.
And he did take another gigantic step and in fact had a huge game along with Nolan Arenado as the St. Louis Cardinals go on the road and for now protect their first place standing atop the NL Central. It's going to be one of those races. I hope that goes down to the wire, but right now we've seen the Cardinals and the Brewers switch places multiple times during the season, and here we are not quite mid-August. We can't really call this mid-August, can we?
Nah, not yet. We're dog dayin' it. We're taking it a dog day at a time, baby.
A friend and I were just talking about that. How do you get through challenges, whether it's personal or professional? You go one day at a time. Don't look too far ahead. When I look too far ahead, I trip.
Of course, if I focus too hard on what's right in front of me, I trip then to frequently walking into walls and apologizing to the furniture. But for purposes of baseball, for purposes of baseball, it's okay to take it one day at a time because we're still into this dog day stretch, not quite to that final month yet. Although this time in one month, we'll be hours away from the NFL season opener.
Wowsers. It's strange, right? It's a strange dichotomy of the slow meandering pace of a 162-game baseball season.
And I do enjoy it. I've said to you before, I love the fact that baseball is my soundtrack of summer. But I also know there's some anxiety and now some tension, some increased sense of urgency as we get closer to the first full pre-season weekend in the NFL and then on into what's to come four weeks from Thursday. You guys, four weeks from Thursday. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. When we started this network, we were on the air following the 2012 NFL season. So a brilliant start to the network because we literally started right as the NFL playoffs were kicking off, following the 12 season, but into 2013. So our on-air date, the inception of the network, January 1st, 2013. And I remember how cool it was to be able to hop right in to NFL playoffs.
I can't believe it's been almost 10 years. And once we get through this regular season, wow, we'll be hopping into the 2022 postseason, but 2023. See, that's what happens when I look too far ahead.
I can't do that. I got to kind of focus on where I am, but do a little planning. It's good to have something to look forward to. Speaking of looking and looking forward, so many of you sent me questions for Ask Amy Anything. We did it with a twist during our home show last night.
And because of that, we've got a lot of extra questions I went back and answered a bunch of them on both Twitter and Facebook, but certainly there's some that we might use in weeks moving forward. Although I got to tell you, odd schedule I've got coming up. Next week, only one show in this time slot. Instead, I've got two shows to start the week, noon to three Pacific, three P to six P, Eastern time, Monday and Tuesday. So it's the time slot normally, well, reserved.
It's normally reserved for Maggie and Perloff, but they are on vacation, I believe. And so I'll be hosting their show on Monday and Tuesday, which is also on CBS Sports Network. I'm not looking forward to that. I've already started to think about it. I think obsess over it a little bit. Just the whole idea of being on TV for three straight hours makes me want to break out in hives.
So I'm going to make me want to break out in hives, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. There's one opportunity for me to focus on one day at a time. This show would stink if I was too busy worrying about next week's shows, right? So Monday, Tuesday, I'll be doing the Maggie and Perloff show, but then back here Tuesday night into Wednesday morning for our hump show. And then off the rest of the week. It's a weird week.
It really is. But they asked me to fill in to guest host. And so I'm doing that, but also had family in town the end of next week. So it's going to be a little bit odd. And as for producer J, we'll have tomorrow night's show together and then only one show next week.
And so we aren't really working together much either, even as we hit one year since he joined the show as the lead producer. So yeah, August is a little bit odd, but it keeps marching forward. Dog days, dog days, dog days, bam! Right into September and football. And then yes, the baseball stretch runs. So there is time for Albert Pujols, but I am feeling a little bit of anxiety over him taking advantage of these opportunities. Man, he's crushing lefties.
Man, he's crushing lefties. I'll say that. We are live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios. Whether you're looking to purchase a new home or refinance yours, Rocket Mortgage can help you get there.

I don't have the whys, but I do have the hows and the whens. Our phone number always remains the same for 10 years and yet sometimes I get it wrong. 855-212-4227. That's 855-212-4CBS. Are we all set?
Are we good? Something I discovered today. My radio voice, still not loud enough for Penny to hear me. She's definitely losing her hearing.
My sweet girl. And so, and I'll use the Grammy example to talk about what's happening with my dog now. When I used to speak to Grammy on the phone, even with my landline, so I have a landline or have a landline because my Grammy couldn't hear me real well on my cell phone, their interference with her hearing aids, which were wireless.
And so I keep my home phone, I use it for other things too, but I have a landline that I use and the primary reason was to be able to speak to Grammy Helen. She still at times couldn't hear what I had to say, so I would yell, which is one reason why I rarely spoke to her in public, but sometimes even when I spoke to her in person in her apartment, I would be yelling and if the door was open, I just kind of had to expect that everybody could hear our conversation. That's how I feel about my dog right now.
We're out in the neighborhood. Unless I yell, the dog cannot hear me. She can still hear because I see her react to some of the things that I say if I'm yelling.
So when I yell, not only can the dog hear me, but all the neighbors can hear me as well. But I'll tell you what, that dog is the most popular member of the family. People love the cat too, not me though. I don't love the cat.
In fact, my college roommate, she's the one that went to the baseball game with me in Boston a couple weekends ago. She actually said to me recently, hey, I'm moving into an apartment where they allow cats. I'll take Sugar if you want. Oh, I was so tempted because she hears me complain about the cat a lot, but I can't. Sugar's part of the family. She's like a kid that, yeah, drives you insane, but you can't get rid of the kid because the kid's part of your family.
So no, I didn't give up Sugar. But anyway, Sugar's popular with most other people in the family, just not me. Penny is popular all over the neighborhood. It dawned on me today how many people know Penny and we've been walking around that neighborhood now for seven years. They don't know my name, but they know Penny. They probably just associate me with the dog. So yeah, amazing how many people in the neighborhood know Penny by name. She gets a ton of attention.
They have no idea who I am except that I'm always with her. I'm her handler, if you will. I'm her PR. PR what? PR coordinator. I do her PR.
Have your people get in touch with her people and her people would be me. So that kind of dawned on me today. It was kind of funny because a lady actually came out of her house just to say hello to my dog and pet her.
And then I always have little kids who are going by on their bikes. Oh my gosh, Penny. Can we pet Penny?
Sure, of course you can. So anyway, yelling along, yelling at my grandmother, now yelling at my dog. I guess it's just good practice for when I yell at you on the radio. No, I don't ever yell at you. I do yell about sports sometimes, but I don't yell at you over sports because that's just a waste of breath.
No need to be yelling. However, when Albert Pujols has one of the games that he had on Wednesday night, I can let out a bit of a yell. He's trying to get some lift on a ball on the pitch. A swing and there's a ball hit into left field for a single scoring one run. Goldsmith crosses Arnaldo stops at third, a line single played on the roll by Daza and Pujols has a run batted in his 25th of the year. The 2-2 pitch for Albert Pujols. He swings and it's a high fly ball.
That's it deep. Left center field, back to the wall and this one is a bounce and into the stands for a double. It cleared the wall on a hop and Albert Pujols has his second hit tonight.
Now on one and two. Pujols swings and hits one high deep to left field and it's a goner going back to back with Nolan Arnaldo. Home run number 687 for the future hall of famer.
That is the voice of John Rooney, Cardinals radio. A four hit game for one Albert Pujols and he goes back to back with Nolan Arnaldo in the sixth inning for his 687th home run. In fact he and Nolan combined for seven hits. So the Cardinals have their way in Colorado at Coors Field. A big win for them to hold off the Brewers who have put together back to back victories. But when you think about what Albert Pujols is doing now in historical context, so it's separate really from what the Cardinals are doing as a team though he obviously contributes on nights like this.
There's really these two Cardinals themes running concurrently. Making the playoffs, winning the division, that's the most important thing but man it's a lot of fun to see how his teammates like Paul DeJong react to Albert Pujols. Pretty much every day I mean just watching his at bats, listening to his his speeches, not speeches but talking during our hitters meetings and now just we rely on him as a you know leadership role and yeah it's just amazing to see him still doing it. The Cardinals have now won eight of their last ten and you remember they swept the Yankees over the weekend at Busch Stadium now on the road and so it's a big deal for them even as they're locked in this pennant race against the Brewers to be able to pick up victories on the road. They're still below 500 on the road so that's a big piece of winning your division is being able to win away from home and certainly can come into play in the postseason so they do not have as good a record on the road as the Brewers do but this was a big step and obviously a big win for them.
This feels like a culmination of a lot of hard work and some opportunities that you know I look forward to to taking and just feels good to have a great team win today and I think we all contributed and that was just a great day overall. Guys bounce back well you take a beating like we did last night and for them to come back with some authority in that first inning score five it just shows what type of guys we have in this clubhouse so it's a good bounce back for sure. So that is one of the intriguing races going on in major league baseball. I wouldn't say the NL West is an intriguing race maybe it's more about how far out in front the Dodgers get or really if you're thinking big picture because the goal for a team that stacks its roster and its lineup like the Dodgers that goes out and gets pieces repeatedly year after year is to win the world series right they're not messing around and anything short of a world series is a disappointment for the Dodgers that's what they do they spend money and they try to collect these pieces and they do certainly have a formidable lineup. I think their pitching has actually been a nice surprise for them this season because they've got Tyler Anderson and Tony Gonsolin who've got double figure wins they've also got Urias who is I think I think he's in double figure wins as well maybe 12 and so they've got three really strong pitchers even as they've got some injuries to some of the other guys that they expected Clayton Kershaw right now on the IL again but the Dodgers though are not likely to be pushed other than for the best record in the National League and right now they also have the best record overall but so that's a race it's a race but it's not like last year where they were a little more battle tested because they went toe to toe with the Giants all the way to the end of the regular season the very last day of the regular season now does it mean they're not going to be as prepared for the playoffs maybe not you've got a lot of veterans in this lineup even guys who were a part of that 2020 World Series but you've also got some new pieces pieces that you're adding you've got some young guys who are trying to to break in on a regular basis I said this about the Yankees earlier in the season I didn't love the fact that they had posted such a huge lead right out of the gate because I don't think it's good for a team I think it's better when you have to fight and scratch and claw you face some adversity it doesn't always come easy to you and that way you know you're prepared for the pressure cooker that is the postseason but right now there isn't anyone stepping up to trip up these Dodgers. No balls two strikes two outs and Taylor with a fly ball to left center field it's well hit it's well hit it's got a chance and it is gone the Dodgers have come from behind again for Taylor his seventh home run of the year the Dodgers five and the twins four oh is this team hot two and one to Gallo bringing a fly ball to left center field well hit on its way and it is gone a home run Joey Gallo with a pinch hit three run home run every move that Dave Roberts has been making tonight has worked to perfection the Dodgers now lead it eight to four. The Minnesota Twins are a team with playoff aspirations they're above 500 we're not talking about a cream puff here but the Dodgers are able to rally they get the home runs that you hear from Chris Taylor and Joey Gallo also Max Muncy so LA has the best record in the big leagues and also has a 10 game win streak I thought this was interesting I didn't realize this because the Dodgers have been so good for so long it seems like first time in five years they put together a double digit win streak so there's that I guess it's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio Joey Gallo relatively new right and and he's had what shall we say should we say he's had a bit of a tumultuous couple of months to be sure if you look on some of the websites where you can see players bios he's still wearing Yankees pinstripes and a Yankee hat right so he was dumped essentially by the Yankees and he was really because our CBS Sports Radio headquarters are located in New York I know this listening to local radio sometimes and listening to some of the the Yankees broadcasts a lot of people down on him and he wasn't performing with New York and so now he's with the Dodgers and it's like the Midas touch pinch hit three run home run for Joey Gallo in his sixth game with LA I felt good I was pretty excited especially like coming off the bench you know you know you don't even know if you're gonna play or not so to get in that bat in that situation and and to come through and hit a homer you know ended up being a pretty big one for us so it's nice to help the team I know that most athletes will tell you they don't pay attention to the noise they don't listen to the negativity but that's probably not true for most of them clearly Gallo heard it it's kind of hard to ignore it when you're in a market with as passionate fans as what New York has there are various regions around the country where sports fans get pretty crazy and can be over the top so Gallo's thrilled that they're not booing him and he's not the object of derision right now it's been a while since I heard people cheering for me so I'm pretty excited about that they've been awesome so far like just cheering me on saying that they love that I'm here and makes me feel good and such a great team to be a part of a great organization so hopefully we can keep winning so you put Gallo in the lineup plus Chris Taylor just came off the injured list Friday he missed almost a month with a broken left foot and so the Dodgers seemingly have answers for everything and now up to 77 wins but it's August and so it doesn't mean a whole lot right now we have a lot to get to still on the baseball diamond the Mets are hot so they're pushing the Dodgers for best record in the NL Aaron Judge has another home run but the Seattle Mariners in the last 44 wait 45 games have the best record in baseball we talked about that last night they add on another win on Wednesday afternoon there's a general manager fired in baseball so we'll give you the the owner's explanation why is here it's straight from the Tigers mouth and of course NFL in the NFL we've got a move by the Cleveland Browns even as they await some ruling on the appeal in Deshaun Watson's case you can find me on Twitter a law radio also on our Facebook page we're just getting started just getting warmed up me me me me me me me me it's After Hours with Amy Lawrence CBS Sports Radio you are listening to the After Hours podcast here's the 1-1 to Santana infield pulled around to the right and he drives one right field that ball is going back giddyup gone home run Carlos Santana and the Mariners have a 4-3 lead they'll wind up in the 1-0 pitch swung out of this popped up foul first base side Ty France over he's got Rome he's there makes the catch near the dugout and the ball game is over the Mariners win it a come from behind four to three win over the New York Yankees and they beat the Yankees they win a series against New York for the first time since 2002 this is After Hours on CBS Sports Radio on Mariners Radio this was actually a perfect no-hitter excuse me it was a no-hitter for Nestor Cortez into the sixth inning he had 10 strikeouts in this game for the Yankees but ultimately gives up the three runs as the Mariners rally you hear the big one being the Santana home run and interestingly enough both the Yankees and Mariners scored three runs in the seventh inning of this game so the the Yankees were down one nothing after Cortez gave up a home run to Haggerty in the sixth but they come right back and they score three runs on a pair of dingers themselves including Aaron Judge with number 45 but in the bottom of the seventh the Mariners answer and the bullpen can't hold that lead it's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio Robbie Ray allows just two runs on three hits and Scott Service is thrilled with this big step for Seattle anybody that's been following the Mariners for a while certainly should have had fun you know this this week great series can't say enough about the effort from our players everybody on our roster contributing but the story the last couple nights has been pitching and I thought Robbie Ray was awesome today yeah I remember we had just gone on the air in the moments after oh no way I lied Yankees and Mariners were still going on actually when we started our show this time last night they were into the 13th because I remember the walk off by the Mariners it was a one nothing win for Seattle it happened as we're getting ready to tag out of our opening segment so yeah they turn around and they play a day game in Seattle and the pitching is good again four home runs in the game but everything coming in the sixth and seventh innings and the Mariners are able to hold the Yankees offense at bay so two things in their last 45 games the Mariners are 32 and 13 best record in Major League Baseball so while they're not going to catch the Astros or it's not likely they're going to catch the Astros I guess anything is possible atop the American League West they're still 10 and a half games back even with the Astros losing on on Wednesday they are very much in the mix for a wild card just like they were a year ago and are desperate to end that playoff drought so they're on a surge right now 32 and 13 in their last 45 meanwhile we're seeing the holes of the Yankees offense still so the pitching has been better the last couple days and Aaron Boone definitely mentioned that but against the Mariners on Tuesday and Wednesday a total of seven hits for Boone's offense we got to get it going offensively the good thing is here we you know think about another another really good start from one of our starters you know but the last two games have been been tough for us obviously to to get much going offensively so while the Yankees are scuffling behind them they're still teams that are just taking each other out right it's one step forward two steps back as much as it feels like the Yankees can't win can't hit can't do anything right and and they've only won two of their last 10 this is not just them coming back to the median or the mean this is really them crashing and so we'll see if they can get it together and put all these pieces in place where they can find that forward momentum the San Diego Padres coming out of the trade deadline made all those moves and similarly had some trouble trying to to get moving forward again though they've won their last two games I believe against the Giants so the Yankees still have a 10-game lead in that division and the Astros are doing their own scuffling right now they're not playing great either so those two teams have the best records in the American League and right now there's no one else close the closest team to them is 10 games so it's it's going to be a back and forth but both of those teams have been exposed a little bit and definitely has some fatal flaws even as the Dodgers and oh yeah the Mets who actually now have a better record than the Yankees in New York baseball it's it's regular season there's no bragging rights now but if you would have told me this a month and a half ago I would have said you were cray fastball hit on the ground up the middle base hit going into center field Nemo hits third he's coming home he'll score the throw by Senzel goes to third Lindor is there and following down the second is Alonzo single run batted in he takes second on the throw and the Mets have a one to nothing lead here's the two two swinging a liner the other way that's a base hit in the score is Guilherme around third coming home McCann the throw will go to second and on at first with a two-run single is Francisco Lindor the Mets have a four to nothing lead the one one line the other way slicing fair ball base hit going down the left field line Kogel back doesn't really have to run he could walk home but Neil is on his way to see him run the ball is played back in by Fraley and Neil standing at second with a double and a run batted in that's a bust of this baby wide open it is 10 to 2 New York here in the sixth inning Howie Rose on Mets radio and they really did bust loose on they put the bus what is it cap in your ass what is that phrase about I mean they did a can of whoop ass but something about a cap in your ass I don't know I suck at cliches sorry anyway all of that against the Cincinnati Reds 21 to 5 they outscored Cincinnati in the sweep and on Wednesday 10 runs on 13 hits so they're just piling on so for Buck Showalter yes the team has won six in a row eight of their last 10 he wants to make sure they do this against top flight opponents as well disrespect for opponents and what we what it takes to to to win it's hard you know we come off of playing obviously Atlanta and you know we're getting ready to head into a stretch that's going to be you know real challenging so all of them are there's a challenge to play in those three games Atlanta doubles up Boston tonight eight to four at Fenway Park but the Mets still have a seven game lead in the NL East and one of the reasons why this season this this August has looked different than last year is because Francisco Lindor is actually doing what they paid him to do he's now got a see it's a franchise tying record franchise tying record stretch in which he scored and it in 13 consecutive games and so for a shortstop to be on base like he is he had three more runs uh today to be able to cross the plate consistently means he's getting on base consistently and that's not something the Mets were getting from him last year plus Buck you want to know one other huge difference it's Buck Showalter so the Mets have got the staying power we're seeing it to be sure and crazy enough a month ago six weeks ago two months ago you never would have thought the Mets would have a better record than the Yankees those two teams among the top four in major league baseball all right you can find me on twitter a law radio really excited top of the hour from Los Angeles Lindsay Rhodes longtime host and tv and radio anchor will join us and and she's agreed to to hang around

i came across some other pieces of the lions and hard knocks that i had not seen so i was watching baseball and also getting ready for work and and driving into our cbs sports radio headquarters on tuesday night and did not see the whole thing i saw bits and pieces of it but did you guys check out aden hutchinson i don't know if this was some type of rookie ritual that he had to to go through to sing in front of the entire team but if you have not seen it i'm going to retweet it right now i've been watching it on a loop no joke for the last probably 18 hours uh aden hutchinson singing uh billy jean michael jackson's billy jean in front of the entire lions squad and he's he's killing it he's crushing the song uh but my favorite part is when the entire team erupts and starts singing with him it's so so so tremendous and so i know that our guest lindsey she was watching hard knocks actually catching up with it on uh wednesday night and so i want to ask her about it because there were some gems now we had some of the dan campbell did you go and grab the other dan campbell that i asked you for about the ass cheeks okay so we'll get the ass cheek comment uh coming up so that we can use it but we had jamal williams we had dan campbell trying to explain that he's not a lunatic i swear i'm not a lunatic uh and then we also had the aden hutchinson we had all kinds of crazy all kinds of crazy stuff just from the very first episode of hard knocks uh so lindsey was catching up and we'll ask her about that but the big news coming from the nfl on wednesday is that dashawn watson is expected to start friday's preseason opener against the jaguars the team actually flew to jacksonville so lots of teams do joint practices before they have some of these either first or second uh round preseason games and for kevin stefanski while the announcement was made on the team plane and watson was on the team plane uh he's trying to focus on the football and trying to stay locked in on the plan i do i haven't shared it with the team yet so i'll wait on announcing that but we have we have a framework jake of how we're going to handle this preseason as you know you always reserve the right to change your mind based on you know how practice goes and those type of things but we're pretty confident in the plan we have will watson make the trip yes all right so you hear him say that watson is going to make the trip but while the team was flying the news was breaking that dashawn is going to start their game in jacksonville now we heard from roger gudel on the last edition of the show the league is looking for a season-long suspension so not content with the six games instead going with the words of their disciplinary officer judge sue l robinson that watson's actions were both egregious as well as predatory the league is appealing to try to to get the year-long suspension or season-long suspension actually those are two different things right and because of that it's still very much up in the air for the browns does the appeals officer that roger gudel appointed rushed to make that decision before friday because that would seem to to me that would be quick really quick and and why would jacobi brissett not be the one who's getting the start i guess especially since right now watson's still getting the majority of first team snaps and i get it he's been out of football for a long time this would be his first time on the football field in live reps in a year plus right but isn't jacobi brissett supposed to be your starter we'll talk to lindsey coming up it's after hours on cbs sports radio how's your mental health i'm listening with michael phelps you know i think for me in in 2014 when i found myself in that dark dark place where i didn't want to be
