Here's the deal. If you want to talk to me it's simple 855-212-4CBS. You can also find me online.

I am everywhere. That is at JR Sport Brief. The big news for tonight, and he just lined out to the shortstop this go round, I guess the 42 year old can't hit a home run every time up. Albert Pujols made history tonight. He hit both home run 699 and home run 700 in back to back innings. A two run bomb, which was 699 in the third inning. And then he hit a three run home run in the fourth inning. Both at Dodger Stadium tonight, Albert Pujols is now the fourth man to hit seven home runs in Major League Baseball history.

Who does he join? Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, and Barry Bonds. He's 42 years old folks, and tonight he has accounted for five of the runs. St. Louis leads the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Eight to nothing. Aaron Judge on the other hand, no home run for Aaron Judge tonight. He did manage a single, and for right now he is still in the lead, not just for the American League MVP, for a triple crown.

A 315 average, 60 home runs, 128 RBIs. But it's a beautiful thing when you have two quote on quote good guys. You don't hear about these guys whining and complaining. They're not jerks to the media, they're not jerks to the fans.

You know, see them accomplish just history and great things. It's fun to watch and I understand. There are a lot of baseball fans or former fans who are jaded.

Right before we went to break, we had a conversation with someone who said, I'm cynical. I can't get excited about Albert Pujols because I'm just, I'm not feeling it from what happened 20 plus years ago. It doesn't matter if it's Roger Clemens or, you know, Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa.

Just a bunch of cheaters running around breaking records. And so it's understandable if you feel that way now 20 plus years later. But at what point are we actually going to respect folks who are in an era where you are tested? And these guys haven't tested positive. Okay, sure. There's always going to be people who are, they jump the rules, they skirt the rules, they find their way around testing and around the rules. But until we hear otherwise, can we enjoy it? Aaron Judge can't hit 60 home runs.

Have you seen the guy? How many people are walking around big as him playing baseball? Let me guess.

None. In the case of Albert Pujols, he's been playing baseball 22 years. The early portion of his career made absolutely no sense. And even though he's been hurt and injured and has had to swap teams a couple of seasons recently, it's not like he was a complete bum. Let him go out with a bang. What are we?

We're all trained as human beings to be so negative now. Enjoy what Pujols is doing. 700 home runs. Enjoy what Judge is doing. 60 home runs on his way to 61.

Probably more than that. If you don't believe it, if you think they're all cheaters, then don't even give it lip service. Ignore it. Show some love to these guys who don't even bother. And guess what? Yeah, sure. If it comes out two, three years from now that they cheated, then quit baseball again. And beat them up just like everybody else.

But until or unless you have concrete evidence besides you are cynical from something that took place 20 plus years ago, I say get over it. Congratulations, Albert Pujols, in joining the 700 club. Aaron Judge, you're up next, man. What you got? 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. I'm going to take more of your calls. And of course, we've got a full slate of games with the NFL. We're going to talk about that as well. Let's get to the lines. Todd is calling from Wisconsin. You're on CBS Sports Radio, the JR Sport Brief Show. Hi, JR. How you doing? Very well, Todd. What's up? I told your producer I was going to try and break your streak. You've had a couple of Dougie Downers call in. Hats off to Albert Pujols for hitting 700. Hats off. Absolutely. Been doing it for a long time.

Yeah, 22 years, yes. I just wanted to tell you, I love your show. I listened to you last couple of Fridays. My son coaches in Illinois, and I try to go down and see as many games as I can. I live in Wisconsin, so I'm heading back. It makes for an easy ride home for me, listen. Hey, listen, I'm trying, Todd. Well, thank you for calling from Wisconsin. You drive safe, okay? Thank you.

No doubt about it. Hey, okay. He makes the road trip on the weekends. He turns on the JR Sport Brief Show. Good. There's enough people riding around on the roads doing all types of crazy things, but I'm happy to help him out. That's what I'm here for.

855-212-4CBS. Jeff is here from Alaska. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

Yeah, Cardinals fan since Lou Brock and Bob Gibson was throwing at people's heads. See, I just wanted to remind folks that Albert broke the all-time extra base hit record also with 1,401 extra base hits. Well, thanks.

That's the fact that many people are missing. Well, thank you, man. That sounds nice. So, what is that? What did he break? Hank Aaron had that record? I don't know who had it, probably. Okay.

Well, I think I want to look into that then, okay? Yeah, no worries, but I know he's got the most now for extra base hits. Hey, thanks for your show. It's helping to keep us warm up here. I'm helping to keep you guys warm in Alaska?

Did it drop down to the 30s yet? At night, yep. We're 4950 in the daytime. And what time does the sun disappear? I've been up there.

It drives me a little crazy. What time did it leave today? Still light, but it's 8 p.m. Still light, but the sun is gone, so it'll be dark in another 20 minutes or so. Wait, wait, wait, wait. You said it's still light, but the sun is down. Well, right. So, the sun has set, but we still have some light.

It's not dark time yet. Okay, I'm not going to ask too many questions. I appreciate you, Jeff. Thank you, man. Yeah, thanks for the show.

No doubt about it. Yeah, listen, I'm helping one guy on his road trip. I'm helping Alaska stay warm. I've been up to Alaska once.

I went in February. The sun did not arrive or whatever the hell you call it. Hey, Carlos, what do you call it? Oh, sunrise. That's what they call it.

I answered my own question. The sun did not rise until like 10 a.m. I was tripped out.

I thought I was under the influence of something. I was like, where's the sun? It's 10 o'clock in the morning. Where is the sun? And that sun disappeared in the afternoon.

It's like four o'clock, five o'clock. The sun was done. I said, whoa, I love it here.

It was beautiful. And then what? In another part of the year, the sun is out all damn day? Whoa. Living in Alaska is trippy, man. Shout out to everybody in Alaska. I need to go back soon. Talk to Bullwinkle and friends, wherever the hell they live. 855-212-4CBS. Brandon is calling from Seattle. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Oh, hey, what's up, JR? How are you? I'm doing great, man. Just enjoying the show. Like you do a great job. Just wanted to say I've really been tuned in a lot more lately. And yeah, it's it's a great show and you do a great job. Thank you, man. What's up?

Just a couple things. I guess like Judge being the size that he is, I think is actually kind of a disadvantage even for hitting home runs. I mean, you see Altuve, whether he's getting signs or not, he's hitting the ball, you know, at least 450.

And he's like half the size of Judge who, if you thought, OK, well, he's twice the size, you should hit the ball 800 feet. But he he typically doesn't, you know, he's hitting it like, well, he doesn't hit 800 feet, but he doesn't. Oh, where the hell did Brandon go? Oh, damn, Brandon got abducted by aliens. I don't know where he went.

He went in a different direction, I believe, than what I thought he was going. Aaron Judge has had an issue since he made it to the majors with his strike zone. Umpires having no idea what the hell a ball or strike is because he's so much bigger than everybody else.

He did. Nobody shares his strike zone. And so pitchers that should typically be called balls have been called strikes. And he's had to suffer for it as he stands there and looks at the ump and goes, hey, that was a ball.

The hell you call into the strike? Aaron Boone has been ejected from games because he has jumped out of the dugout. And he's gone right the hell over to the ump and said, you got to call my guy with an accurate strike zone. He's six, seven, he's arms and legs.

And that's true. But here's the beautiful thing about Aaron Judge. Since he's come up to the bigs consistently since 2017, he's not out there flailing at everything. He's not out there swinging and missing.

He's not just swinging for the fences. Aaron Judge is a complete baseball player. We had Bernie Williams on the show earlier this week. Bernie Williams played center field for the New York Yankees.

He understands covering all of that ground. Well, Aaron Judge has been doing it this season at six, seven to eighty. He's been playing the field at a Gold Glove level. He's been at the plate. One of them. And let me not even say one of the most Aaron Judge leads baseball in every single major statistical offensive category.

That is not an exaggeration. The American League average. Home runs, obviously. RBIs. Yes. O.P.S. War. Runs. Total bases. I can go on. What is this? Aaron Judge is the type of guy I would create in a video game.

When I had time to play 20 plus years ago, it's like, oh, I need to create a player. How big can I make him? Oh, six, seven, six, eight is the max. Yeah.

Can I make him strong with muscles? Yeah. Boom. Aaron Judge. Except for he's a real person. Let's enjoy him.

Him and Pujols. I'm still upset at the guy who called last hour. And I get it. You're within your right. You're a cynic. Everybody's cheating. You do something great. He's a cheater.

Albert Pujols has seven home runs. I don't believe it anymore. OK, then just don't pay it attention. Don't complain about it.

Don't say anything. Marty is calling up from Westchester. Hey, Marty, my friend from The Fan, Marty is on CBS Sports Radio.

Yes, I guess now it's good morning, JR. I'd like to weigh in on this Albert Pujols discussion. I think it's it's a night of celebration for Major League Baseball, you know, for the Cardinal fans in St. Louis. A great ball player. I'm happy that Albert Pujols was able to achieve 700 home runs. It's quite an accomplishment.

And sure, he had some rough times in Anaheim, but you have to look at the overall picture. And he's been a generational ball player over the last 22 years. So it's it's really it's it's terrific. JR, on a personal note, I didn't mention this to your producer, but I was at the stadium on Tuesday to witness Aaron Judge's 60th home run. I am going today again, so I hope to witness some more history. So it's just been a great week for Major League Baseball. Beautiful, man.

I mean, Judge is due for the next one. It's been a couple of days now. So I think all things considered, Saturday afternoon, I'm hoping not to move. Are you going to be sitting in the outfield, Marty?

And unfortunately not. I'll be along the first baseline. I have a partial season plan. I always sit behind first base. But, you know, just being there is going to be special if he's able to hit one or maybe even two out today.

Beautiful. Well, if you can get into the outfield and bust some people up for the baseball, by all means, I'd love to see you in the news. OK, Marty? I appreciate that. Always great talking to you.

Always a pleasure. Thank you, Marty, for calling up from Westchester, New York. 855-212-4CBS.

It's 855-212-4CBS. Jim is here from Cleveland. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. On the JR. Yeah, I'm a competitive powerlifter for 30 years.

I'm drug-free. And so when we start talking about the use of PEDs in sports, when you look at that baseball, you look at the ones that were Maguire and Bonds. And, you know, they obviously use PEDs. So when you get someone approaching a record, they need to be checked.

That's not cynicism. That's reality. So you get checked.

And you get checked a lot. And if you're fond that you've got it, well then, adios. If you're fond that you're not, then you should celebrate it. That's why there's cynicism. It's not unfounded. I'm not pointing a finger at Joe Smith. Anybody that is in that level, that is approaching a record, they need to be cleared. Well, they are. And they have been.

And these guys are tested. The guy who called up last hour was a self-described cynic. And I said to him, well, if you don't believe it, well, what are you watching for? He's like, I don't watch. And I go, well, if you're not watching, what are you calling me for? Because I'm listening to you. And I appreciate that. Thank you. That's the power of me. I'll go ahead and pat myself on the back.

But my position is, if you don't care, then just don't watch. These guys are tested. They've been tested. Okay, when was the last time he was tested? Is that out there?

When was the last time they were tested? Oh, my God. I don't... No. Oh, my God. It should be public record. It shouldn't be, oh, my God. Oh, no. Well, it's private, okay? You want to know why? No, it's not.

That's where the problem is. Jim, can you stop? Jim, can you... I've been competing for a long time. I've lost championships. The guys are on it.

If it was your son that finished in second, and somebody was on it, you would want it to be looked into. Jim, can you stop? I've allowed you to say a lot. I'm going to ask you to listen to me without interruption. Can you give me that respect? Sure. Well, thank you, okay? These drug programs, I'm going to let you know, I don't care what you've done, okay? God bless you for your powerlifting career.

God bless you, okay? This is Major League Baseball. You didn't play baseball. I'm sorry, Jim. These guys, hey, hey, stop.

Listen. Their results, when they get tested randomly, these are not things that are public record, okay? I don't know the last time that Albert Pujols got a phone call and they said, hey, Albert, I need you to come in here and drop your pants and let me see.

I wasn't in the urinal the last time that Albert Pujols went to the restroom. But I'll tell you this much, I have confidence and faith based on what we have seen or not heard, let me say this again, not heard over the past 22 years that I will assume he is clean. Am I naive enough to believe that there is a zero percent chance?

No. No, I'm not. But I'm not prepared to go, oh, man, we don't know or we have no idea. You're correct, we don't. But what we haven't heard is that he's tested positive.

And for me, that's enough between both Aaron Judge and Pujols. If you want to be that concerned, then I'm pretty sure you can find a job where you can watch him drop his pants and go ahead and pee. Does that make sense, Jim?

OK, thank you for calling from Cleveland. I mean, let's be real here, people. We're going to slaughter everybody because we weren't in the bathroom when he took a test. Is that where we're going?

Oh, my God, no, it needs to be public record. Well, I really don't care. You know what Albert Pujols had for breakfast.

Did it come with a side of Andro? Then I don't care. Like, damn, has baseball fried that many people's brains? Did Barry Bonds do the world in that much?

If a guy tests positive, trust us, we'll find out. We got a bunch of old sports writers who they serve no purpose but to be a bunch of angry guys who don't play baseball and want to tattle on everybody. How many records over the past 20 years have just, quote unquote, come out? Go ask David Ortiz.

How many how many records were kind of just pushed out there? We're supposed to be private. If Aaron Judge is cheating, if Pujols is cheating, let us know.

And I'm sorry, you could be a power lifter or you could be an elementary school teacher who can't lift up a pencil. I mean, when they fail a test, let me know. There's a chance that everybody is, quote unquote, cheating.

Do you believe that? I mean, damn. It's the J.R. sport re-show on CBS Sports Radio.

I knew that a lot of people didn't like baseball or felt badly about it or hate the pace. I didn't know there'd be this many people who go, Aaron Judge, he might be using. Yeah, he might be on eating sunflower seeds right now. I don't know. Prove it. Let me get some more of your calls.

855-212-4CBS. I guess, I guess Tom Brady, he must be on stuff, too. He's lasted so damn long. We're here on CBS Sports Radio. More of your calls on the other side.

You're listening to the J.R. Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Aaron Judge, yeah, he knocked out 60 earlier this week. He's still waiting on 61. Tonight, he went one for four, still has a batting average of 315, is still leading for the Triple Crown. And the world waits for Aaron Judge to tie Marist with the most home runs in American League history for a single season. But tonight, someone who didn't waste any time is Albert Pujols. The St. Louis Cardinals are in Los Angeles taking on the Dodgers. Albert Pujols entered the game with 698 home runs in the third inning. He said, here you go. Here is 699, a two run blast, giving them a 2-0 lead.

He comes back in the fourth inning and Albert Pujols delivers a three run bomb, his 700th career home run, only the fourth man to do that in Major League Baseball history, joining Ruth, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds. This is the part that stinks. We got I've had a couple of callers hit me up and go, I don't I don't I don't know. He might be using.

Well, you're sure he might be using. He might have had waffles, pancakes and fruit for breakfast. I don't know. Maybe he did that, too. I don't know. Maybe he opened up the door, the car door with his left hand or his right hand.

Maybe he did. I don't know. I don't have proof. I don't have evidence. And so what guys who accomplish amazing things and in Major League Baseball, they have to cheat now?

Because we had a bunch of cheaters doing it 20 years ago. Damn, where's the positivity? I don't see any evidence. You can tweet me at J.R. Sportbrief. Keith Sanhan, he tweets me from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He says, what is with these negative callers? Sheesh.

Congratulations, Albert Pujols. We had someone call up from Cleveland a few minutes ago. He says, I'm a power lifter. I used to be a power lifter. He's just like, oh, it needs to be public record. What what these guys are doing so we can, you know, I'm like, it's not like I've been power. I don't care how long you've been power lifting. That's not what baseball does. When guys test positive, it's because it's been leaked. Man, dammit, we had it a couple of months ago.

Ask your friend out in San Diego. Tell him to go get a clean haircut. Mr. Tatis Jr. Baseball didn't say, oh, this and that. It was leaked. There's actually rules in place.

I'm looking at it right now. Confidentiality. The office of the commissioner, the association. HPAC, club personnel, all of their members, affiliates, agents, consultants, employees are prohibited from publicly disclosing information about the players test results.

Initial evaluation, diagnosis, treatment program, prognosis or compliance with the program. What do you think I just pull things out of thin air? How about I go to your job and then drug test you and tell the whole world and I don't care if it's baseball, it's still a job. 855-212-4CBS. Tim is calling from Maryland. You're on the JR Sport Reef show.

Hey, you know, of course, I'm on my way home from work, as usual. But let me tell you something. I think people are shorting themselves big time when the ones that are saying that Aaron Judge and pool holes are using and doing whatever they're doing, whatever they're saying.

You know what? They're not what they're not realizing is they're not able to appreciate true talent. You know, and that's what bothers me the most is, is, is like, why don't you just appreciate these guys? You know, just, you know, they're true talent.

OK, so why don't you just think about that for a minute? You know, it drives me up a wall. I can't believe these people that, you know, all these negative people, you know, it's like, you know, there are people like Aaron Judge and our pools that come along every once in a while.

They don't come along a lot, but they do come along. And, you know, you have to appreciate that, you know, and it's just I don't know, it just makes me nuts. No, I hear you, Tim.

And thank you for calling from Maryland. You know, I can understand anyone. This is how I feel. If you hit me up five years from now and said, oh, you know, Judge was using or whatever, I'd go, OK, wow. I wouldn't be off the roof about it. I'm not going to be losing my mind.

I'm not going to be jumping through the chimney or jumping out of the studio now because of it. Because I don't have any reason to think he's cheating. That's it. It's the same thing with Pujols. His career has been kind of on the downswing, but it's not like he's he's just lost power.

Obviously, he's reinvigorated playing back at home. Walt is calling from Pennsylvania. Go ahead, Walt. J.R. Love the show. Lifelong pirate fan. Watch a lot of baseball hats off to Mr. Paul's and Aaron Judge. I don't care what they're using. You still have to.

Hit the baseball correctly to get it to go over the yard. They're talented. You know, I don't care what you're using. They're great. OK. No problem with it. All right.

Well, thank you, Walt, for calling from Pennsylvania. You know, yeah, you have to have talent. Hasn't that been the argument surrounding Barry Bonds forever?

It's like he did not need to use. But it's not so much about your talent and your hand eye coordination, your ability to decipher a ball from a strike or, you know, see that a curveball is coming versus a change. It's none of that.

The reality is. It helps with endurance. It helps with recovery.

It helps with your ability to go out there and hit home runs to not tire. That's what it boils down to. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. I'm going to be positive. Congratulations, Albert Pujols.

And damn it, I give myself maybe less than twenty four hours. I'll be able to say the same thing to Aaron Judge. What do you say? You're listening to the J.R.

Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, what's up, J.R.? I agree with you. I like your show because I tend to disagree, but tonight I agree. Well, that's nice.

As long as you feel something, that's all that matters. It's the J.R. Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. As we move towards the end of the 2022 Major League Baseball regular season. We have some major accomplishments that are taking place tonight. Albert Pujols hits home run number six ninety nine and number seven hundred.

And he does it with a bang. Home run number six ninety nine, a two run shot. Home run number seven hundred, a three run shot. And as of right now, tonight. As the St. Louis Cardinals are in Los Angeles taking on the Dodgers. Albert Pujols has accounted for half of the team's runs. It's the end of the seventh.

St. Louis leads the Dodgers 10 to nothing. And so I can't even say to my shock or to my surprise. I've taken a couple of callers who have just been a little negative about the situation. Negative about Albert Pujols. Oh, I'm not happy. I'm just not interested. No drugs, drugs, drugs from 10, 20 years ago.

Aaron Judge. Oh, well, you know, drugs, drugs, drugs. You know, forget the fact that he's a giant.

Drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs. I'm just like, prove it. Nobody has any evidence. And so we have evidence to just leave him alone and join him.

There is nothing in either of these guys histories that would make you think they are. Aaron Judge came up as a rookie. And said, boom, here, guys, he has 52 home runs as a rookie.

He was swinging away. And then at the end of that season, he was hurt. He blew out his shoulder the second half of the year. What would he have done that year if he was healthy all the way through? So what are we shocked that at age 30 in his prime years now that he's he's hitting 60?

Come on. And Albert Pujols, look at his career arc. Look at what he did early. Look at what he did with the Angels and yeah, up and down, up and down. The guy's always had power.

There's some injury plague seasons last year. I think he had about 12 home runs. If he can go out there and play, he's cool. He's just old.

Forty two years old. Sometimes you've got to give credit where credit is due until you learn otherwise, until you're presented with otherwise. We have yet to receive that otherwise. From Albert Pujols or Aaron Judge. And the other part is, and sure, Mark Maguire and Sammy Sosa, they were like peanut butter and jelly. They were making people happy. Mark Maguire, Sammy Sosa. Oh, so what's a happy story?

Mark Maguire. Good guy. Nice guy. Had his kid with him on a home run chase. And oh, yes, sweet story. And then he was a cheater.

I'm not just going to slap the label on everybody. Aaron Judge looks like a great human being to me. I'm judging that also by being around him a little bit. I've never met Albert Pujols a day in my life.

Not that I can remember. By all considerations, he seems OK to me. Eight five five two one two four CBS. Mickey.

Calling from South Carolina. Go ahead, Mickey. J.R. Appreciate your show.

Really, really enjoy hearing you know what I'm out driving. I have to agree with you. The polls and Judge. Great for baseball. Happy for both of them.

I hope Judge gets the record this week, but. Neither one of them ever been involved in anything. So why would you suspect they are now? I mean, let's give them the benefit of the doubt. And so we have shown otherwise. I agree with you. And if they have proven to have done something, then you chalk it up and go, OK. They cheated, too.

This this. But until we have something, I agree with you, Nick. Yeah, I mean, you know, I've watched Paul Holt's entire career. He's been a been a model citizen. I mean, he's kind of guy that goes to hospital, visits children after games and different cities, not just in St. Louis or wherever he's playing. So I mean, I got to give it to the guy. I think he's a great guy.

I would agree. But, you know, there's there's still that small chance, even though it's small, it's large enough for people to go. Yeah, he was at the Children's Hospital, you know, shaking hands and kissing babies.

And then he slid into the bathroom in. It's just wild, man. We got to see.

Until you can show me he did it. I am I am 100 percent for him and judge. I feel the same way, Nick. Thank you for calling from South Carolina. Kelly is calling from Houston. You're on the Gerald Sport Brief Show. What's up, JR? How you doing, man? Good.

Glad you were in Houston several months ago. I wish I could have met you, but I didn't get the chance. Well, listen, Kelly, I swing through quite a bit. So I'll be back real soon. Well, you got to call me. I'll hook you up with some good Mexican food.

Oh, damn it. I got to call you. You who's easier to reach me or you?

I don't know. I've been on hold for 30 minutes, so I got an email addresses. Well, we're we're very popular here, as you can tell. Yeah, I hear you. I hear you.

You know how to find me. Go ahead. Yeah. So three things. Three things about the baseball season that I have just thoroughly enjoys this year. Number one, the Astros kicking butt and taking names. Yeah.

Number two, Aaron Judge doing what he do and Albert Pool doing what he do. And they're doing it on the up and up, as far as I'm concerned. And it's making me happy and it's making me enjoy the baseball season. You know, as far as these suspicious folks, you know, these people who question all this stuff are the same people to wear tin foil hats. You know what I'm saying? So.

OK. But I mean, look, I mean, I've been married for 20 something years and me and my wife don't really get along. We haven't got along in quite a while now, but I do not suspect her cheating. You know what I'm saying? Until she proves to me until something comes up that that suggests she's cheating. I. She's not. She's not. And so the same same thing that you've been saying and many callers have been playing Albert pool holes and Aaron Judge. They need to be complimented.

They need to be praised and they need to be recognized for the accomplishments they're doing. Oh, thank you, Kelly, for coming through with the relatable example, man. Are you sleeping on the couch? Where are you sleeping?

On the couch for like eight years. But hey, it's comfortable. Hey, I understand, man.

I'm not going to argue that. I appreciate you, Kelly, man. I hope you make it to a bed soon. OK, we'll be good. It'll be all. It'll be all good. Thank you, man. I enjoy your show every night, man. Well, thank you, Kelly.

Appreciate you for calling from Houston. Yeah. Make it to a bed. Well, I can't make that joke because I need Doka.

I don't need any trouble. Hey, Carlos, man, we're gonna have to open up a counseling service here, man. It was this close to being a late night therapy session.

I felt it. Yeah. How long did he say him and his wife don't get along? How long?

I think he said 20 years, which is impressive because most people can't stand each other up to 10. Maybe that's why he wants to go have Mexican food with me. I'm down. I go. Hey, nothing needs a burrito. Yeah, I don't need his wife.

They say, oh, you out with J.R. eating Mexican. You can't hang out with me. I don't I don't need that trouble.

Hey, listen, when I come to Houston, I do want to eat Mexican. I've I'll be going. Never mind. I don't want to rat on myself. But listen. Yeah. J.R. sport brief at gmail dot com. Some somebody is going to use that email for nefarious purposes, but that's fine.

But yeah, I want the Mexican food. Make sure you hit me up. Who do we have here?

Mike is calling from Providence, your CBS sports radio. Hey, doing first time, long time. Thank you. Go ahead. I just I just I agree with a lot of the things that you're saying.

And these guys should be celebrated. You know, you can ask Danny Ainge, John Elway, Michael Jordan, one of the greatest athletes of all time, Kyler Murray, a lot of other, you know, multi-sport athletes that baseball is difficult. It's not a very easy sport at all. These guys make it look easy.

Judges gigantic. He has a lot of leverage and he's smart. You know, you see the ball. Pujols has 10000 hours. You know, the whole mastery thing.

I mean, it's not easy to do what they do. And it should be celebrated. You know, I thought Albert Pujols actually was going to hit a triple crown in my lifetime. And it was Miguel Cabrera. And now judge is going to do it. I'm a huge Yankees fan. I'm going Sunday and I'm I'm excited selfishly. I hope it doesn't happen. But, you know, everyone after 61 is, you know, a celebratory.

It's a ball run anyway. Well, thank you, Mike. I appreciate you.

I hope he hits number 62 your way. I thank you for calling up as the chair. A sport show on CBS Sports. Ray, I'm gonna get some more your calls. We're going to talk some NFL football.
