JR can't believe how lousy certain high paid MLB teams have been this season

People who are locked in on Sirius XM Channel 158 and everybody on a smart speaker. Thank you. I appreciate you. Shout out to super producer and host Dave Shepherd. He's holding it down in New York City. I'm going to be hanging out with you for two more hours.

I get started. 10 p.m. Eastern, 7 Pacific. You know, we just had a caller last break talk about how bad the Yankees are. Well, now it's official. They lost again to the Angels. Five to one. Shohei Ohtani hit a triple in this game. He now leads the American League.

I think tied for the lead with six. Not only does he lead in home runs and triples, he got a busted finger. So his pitching stinks right now. Still one of the best pitchers in the game as well. What is he?

Did they did he come out of a lab? The guys just what is he not good at? How the hell is he? He's he's good at everything. He's about to get paid. He's about to be the American League MVP.

He's going to get paid. He's stealing bases. He's hitting triples. He's hitting home runs. He's batting for average. He's striking guys out. What the hell? It's like they made Shohei Ohtani in a lab.

Pretty, pretty amazing. What the hell he's doing. So the Angels win over the Yankees five to one. But here's the here's the brass tacks. The Angels should still trade him.

OK. There's no reason for the Angels to hold on to this guy and the New York Yankees. Yeah, they're they're cooked, man. The New York Yankees had to count them two hits in this game. And it feels like game to game to game. The Yankees have absolutely nothing but two hits.

An Aaron Judge with his busted up foot can't do anything but sit, watch and clap on the sidelines as the New York Yankees look like complete trash. I want to remind you, not even remind you. I want to let you know before I continue on that this portion of the show is brought to you by Wesley Financial.

That's 855-212-4CBS. So much to get into as the show continues on. If you've missed the minute, you can hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. We talked about the Kansas City Chiefs. The fact that Patrick Mahomes didn't need to, but already showed up at training camp for the Chiefs, is already talking about hopefully going back to back on Super Bowl victories. We talked about Bill Belichick not getting the love and the respect that you would think being on the hot seat. Even Ahsante Samuel, the guy who was on the Patriots, the last team to go back to back.

Ahsante Samuel is destroying him. Kirby Smart saying that the only thing stopping the Bulldogs from a three-peat is complacency. We talked about Madden ratings and Shohei Ohtani. We had a caller rate me. He said, JR, you'd be an 85.

And I said, nah, man, I'd be a 68. And so we have oh so much more to do. Got a lot of callers who've been waiting patiently. I want to pick up your calls. I want to talk to you.

I want to talk to you about an NBA player who has a new documentary coming out. I want to talk to you about how bad these stinking Yankees are. We'll talk about Ohtani, speaking about people getting dissed. We got Ronaldo out here who's in Saudi Arabia playing soccer, dissing the Major League Soccer League, MLS, and Messi. He's like, oh, Saudi League is better than MLS. Everybody's following me. Like, damn, what a way to crap on Messi.

That's how that's how rivals do it. 855-212-4CBS. It's 855-212-4CBS. Let's go ahead and get to Mike from Baltimore. You're on the JR Sport Reef Show. Hey, Mike, you're live on the radio.

OK, Mike, you're no longer live on the radio. Let's go to Ray. Ray's calling from here in Atlanta. You're on the JR Sport Reef Show. What's up, Ray? JR, what's going on, man? Great show. How are you?

I'm amazing, man. What's on your mind? Number one, I need to ask you, when's the last time you played a sports sim? Like, when did you get out of sports video games? Oh, man, since I started making money, I don't know. When I was a teenager. So I don't want to ask you age.

I don't want the world to know. But I still play sports sims. I'm making money. Sports who? Simulations? Yeah, sports sims like Madden is a franchise. It's a sim game. You got Madden, you got 2K, MLB, the show, all of that. You were talking about Shelly or Tommy.

You talked about Victor Uemeyama like a few weeks ago. These are video game characters, like, in real life, but now you get to play them. So, like, if you're a real sports fan and you love it, you will also play the sim all the time. And you can play, like, OG games. You can play basketball players from the 70s, baseball players from the 70s, football players from the 90s. Like, it's complete sports bliss.

The franchises have gotten, like, really, really detailed, realistic. So, like, you got to get back into it, man. Yeah, I know all of that. I don't have no time for that.

Do you? If you don't have time, that's one thing. But to say that they're bad, that's another.

Come on, man. I didn't say that they were bad. I said, I said I don't got no time for it. And I said that they haven't, the games haven't changed all that much over time.

That much I know. I'm not, I'm not out of touch. I didn't fall out of a, you know, a little, a... What, my God, what are you doing? Oh my, you got a window down? There's no window down.

Where's all that air coming from? What is that? Huh? Where the hell? Shut up. What happened to that guy? He's in his spaceship? Evaporated.

Oh, man. Let's try again. Let's see if it helped. Hey, Ray, you there? I'm still here. What's going on? Oh, what happened to all that background noise?

What are you doing? I'm driving in the car. Oh, you didn't have the window down?

No, no, no windows down. I was hands-free. Oh, okay. All right. You switched...

I'm pulling, I'm pulling over to the side of the road to talk to you now. Yeah, you switched something. Okay. Yeah, Ray. Okay. Yeah, don't, you don't got to BS me on the radio. I wasn't born yesterday. You BSing me on sports video games, man.

You got to get back into it. No, I'm not. I'm not BSing you on no video games, man.

Listen, I don't have time to sit down and play the games. That's another thing. I know this much. The games have not changed that much.

That's not true. Well, can, may I, may I respond and listen? You know how to listen?

You know how to do that? I'm listening. So thank you.

Good. If I got to think about the past 30 to 40 years of video games, sports video games specifically, there was a massive jump from going from 1985 to the year 2000, from the year 2000 to the year 2010. What has taken place over the last 10 to 15 years from, from, from graphics has, has kind of slowed down. Innovation has slowed down. It's one thing to go from NBA Jam in a 1995 or 1993 and then fast forward to a 3D simulation game.

There's only but so much we can do. Somebody called me, I don't know if it was here on CBS Sports Radio or if it was WFAN in New York City. And someone said to me, man, you know, I have this big old TV in my house and I feel, he asked about the games not being delivered in full 4K.

And my response to him was, bro, how the hell much more do you want out of the TV? You might as well, you might as well step out onto the field. And so my point is I can look up and down about the features in the game for everything that you just said. OK, we can talk about buying shoes and playing with Bill Russell. Bill Russell versus Wim Benyama. I can get back.

I can do all of this. But when it comes to the actual gameplay, you'd be hard pressed to tell me that Madden has evolved oh so much over the past 10 to 15, almost maybe pushing 20 years. And it's the same thing for 2K outside of the features. This is nothing groundbreaking. We've reached a point where I don't want to say things have plateaued, but until you can put a headset on and be in the game and be Victor Wim Benyama, there ain't too much more that we can do graphically and from gameplay. Well, that's too far.

Being Victor Wim Benyama with a headset on is too much. But playing Sims and seeing Victor Wim Benyama's career develop and being a GM, building up your franchise, creating players, that's cool. I've said all of that. We're talking about two different things.

We are. You don't have time. I'm surprised you're not vested.

I am talking, well, listen, man, I make money by talking and going and actually talking to these dudes, not playing as them. Right. So I ain't going to sit down. If I got a chance, do I want to play Victor Wim Benyama or am I going to go see him in San Antonio?

I'll go talk to him. You can do both. You can. It's not one or the other. You can do both.

No, it is. I can make more money by going and talking to him. You're talking about features.

I'm talking about gameplay, man. I'm not interested in buying and doing all this. If I want to buy shoes and figure out life with Victor Wim Benyama, I'll go talk to him, Ray. All right. Sounds good.

To each his own. Thank you, man. You drive safe out there, OK? Will do. Take care, man. Great show.

Thank you, Ray, for calling from Atlanta. Yeah, I don't care about, if I'm playing a video game, I don't want to buy shoes for Victor Wim Benyama. I don't want to go out on the court. I don't want to play, oh, my God, Victor Wim Benyama versus Bill Russell.

I don't care. I want to just play the game. I love NBA Jam. I just played the game and I played the game with a directional pad, two triggers and four buttons. Shoot, shoot, rebound pass block was the same button, I think, as the shoot button.

I don't know. I could pick up NBA Jam right now and have a grand old time. You know what I didn't do in NBA Jam? I ain't buy no shoes. I didn't buy tattoos for my player. I just played and I had a good time.

He's on fire. I loved it. The games haven't evolved that much for me. And I don't think people have fully embraced all of the headset technologies that we have now. The Google Oculus and the Google Glass.

Look, I remember, and I sound, this is going to sound real odd or I'll put myself in a place. When Google was testing out Google Glass, if anybody remembers, they were the shades, not shades. They were glasses that was basically tapped into a computer. And you put them on your head and I basically walked around with the internet. I could record.

It was like 3D. It would give me directions. It's like, hey, you can test this out. People aren't interested in that yet. And so one day, you won't have to play a video game with a stupid controller. You'll put on a headset and you'll be in the game. When the video games get there, let me know.

And when they get there, I will definitely be old. I will definitely have no interest. Sorry. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio, 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. I just told you about these garbage ass Yankees. There's no other way to put them. They can't muster a hit.

They can't do anything right now. Angels just beat them 5-1. Mr. Do-It-All Shohei Ohtani is out here getting triples.

It's pretty nuts. As a matter of fact, listen to the Shohei Ohtani triple. This is courtesy of the Angels Radio Network. Here's the pitch. Rounded past the first baseman, Lomeu.

This is going to roll all the way in the corner. And Neto might have a chance to score. He's going to be way tall, but he's going to score easily. And headed for third and getting there with a stand-up triple is Ohtani.

And it's 4-1 Angels. Can we give Shohei Ohtani the MVP award today? All he has to do is stay healthy the rest of the year. Just give him the award. One of the best pitchers.

Okay, he's got a busted finger right now. Leading the world in home runs, 35 of them. Leading the world in triples, tied for the lead with six. Shohei Ohtani does everything except for talk to the media in English. He does everything.

Hey, Shep, what can he do? Sing karaoke? I'm sure he's a great karaoke singer. Is he one of the elite pitchers in baseball? I wouldn't put him there yet. He's really good. He's not an elite. He's an elite hitter, no question. Oh, he's an elite pitcher. When you look at strikeout rate and innings pitched, he's at the top of all of that. His past few outings have been crap because he's dealing with a broken finger, or at least a broken fingernail. He's dealing with a blister.

He was dealing with finger pain. But when you look at strikeout rating, he's one of the top pitchers in the game. Fair enough. Now, I'm nitpicking, but it's not exactly like he's been tie cop Trish Speaker Roger Hornsby at the plate until this season.

Nobody is putting him in there. But he's one of the best pitchers. He's an all-star pitcher and an all-star hitter. Fair enough.

That's just flat what it is. And someone who is – I'm sure he wishes he was on his team. Shohei Ohtani didn't give the Yankees the time of day when he was coming over from Japan. Aaron Boone just spoke to the media, and he basically said that they suck.

Listen. We just weren't able to really get much of the barrel and the ball enough. We had a base runner two first few innings.

We were able to work some walks. But we know we've got to be better, period. Yeah, tell me about it. They've needed to be better all season long. They can't hit nothing. They suck.

They really do. 8-5-5, 2-1-2 for CBS. It's 8-5-5, 2-1-2 for CBS. Robbie is calling from Phoenix. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Yes, good evening. I love to listen to on the show.

I have been fortunate throughout my life to see baseball not only in America but in Japan and the Dominican League and Taiwan. And there's no doubt about this. Aaron Boone is the worst manager walking the planet Earth today. I am so sick of his feckless speeches. I want a new manager Friday, or I'm just not going to watch this team. This is a horrible, horrible manager. He never should have been hired. He needs to get fired, and he needs to get fired now. Not next year.

Not next week. Fired tomorrow. He is the Inspector Clouseau of professional baseball. I want this man fired, and he should never get another job in baseball again. He is the worst manager walking on this god-screen earth.

Well, Robbie, I hate to share this with you. Changing the manager of the New York Yankees right now isn't going to do anything. Because Aaron Boone is not going to get fired, and he's not going to step into the batter's box and try to help them hit.

I don't care who is managing the team. The manager can't step into the batter's box, of which every guy on the roster has just been pathetic. They need a leader of men that can get them motivated to play. It seems like they're unprepared to play. They make mental mistakes. Robbie, this is a simple question to you. This is the major leagues. There ain't no motivating these guys to go out there and do nothing.

You either got it or you don't. Oswaldo Peraza, okay? Giancarlo Stanton, who's making $25-plus million a year. Anthony Rizzo, D.J. LeMayhew, Harrison Bader, Isaiah Kyniferleffa, who's a slap hitter. Kyle Higoshioka, who's barely a catcher.

You got a rookie in Volpe. What is Aaron Boone supposed to do? Is he supposed to ra-ra-ra them into 10 hits a game?

What is he supposed to do? They would be playing cleaner baseball if they had a better manager. They would be making errors. They would actually hustle. I see many times where they don't hustle.

No, Robbie. I think you're putting too much on the manager. These are grown men. These are grown men. And I'll take it a step further. Here's a little bit of a cliché.

These are grown ass men. If you don't got it, then Aaron Boone ain't going to deliver it. Come on. And I can certainly agree with you. If you want to talk about his decisions, if you want to look at the lineups. A lot of people find Aaron Boone to be a puppet. Well, we got a lot of managers who are quote unquote puppets. Well, they tell me what to do and I just go out there and do it.

But to think that he's going to motivate guys out of batting 200? Man, the world don't work that way. The world don't work that way. I guess Eric Spolstra can coach, I don't know, maybe he can coach Bam Adebayo into being a 40% three point shooter.

No, it does not work that way. You work with what you got. Aaron Boone did not construct the roster and coaching them or yelling at them or motivating them. What do you want him to do? Kick over a water tank in the locker room? That ain't doing nothing, man.

Please. Aaron Boone, since you don't like him so much, he kept on talking. He said, there's no quit in this New York Yankees squad. Listen to him. No, no, no. Like there's no quit in it.

There's no, we got to fight. Like we got really good players in there. And a lot of guys that are going through a tough, tough stretch, you know, for some probably as tough a stretch as they've been in their career. So you don't take your ball and go home.

You stick your nose in there and you grind it out and you compete your ass off. Yeah. Okay. Look, if Aaron Boone got fired next week, next year, I'd be like, yeah, fine, whatever. Are you going to get better players?

That's what it boils down to. 855-212-4CBS. 855-212-4CBS. Kyle is calling from California. You're on the JR Sportbreeze show. What's up, Kyle? Hey, man. How you doing? I'm amazing.

How are you? Good. So I'm going to talk about the San Diego Padres today and how weird of a season it's been. Because to give you some background, it's been kind of weird being a San Diego sports fan for the past, like, I don't know, five, 10 years.

Obviously, the Chargers are gone. Yeah. Got to forget about them. Whatever.

Still kind of bitter, but whatever. Then the Padres, you know, they've always been kind of weird, inconsistent. They were doing well in 2021, then collapsed.

But then last year, the whole city kind of came alive when they all of a sudden did the best they had done in what, like, over a decade? They made it past the wild card, which is cool. But then I'm like, okay, they're going to the division series. They're going to lose against the Yankees. They beat the Yankees and we went to the NLCS. And of course, we lost the NLCS last year.

And that sucks. But it was still really, it was a really good feeling. It felt like there was hope for the next season. And this season was all about, their whole motto is bring the gold, bring the gold.

We are 45 and 50 right now. 45 wins, 50 losses, fourth in the National League West. And I'm just sitting here thinking, what the, what the heck happened? Like what, it's such a weird year with this team because you're trying, you're trying to pinpoint one thing, which is like, well, there's a few, well, there's a few things. You Darvish has been crap this year. You've had inconsistent offensive production and boom, there you have it.

I don't think there's, that's, that's basically what it is. You watch them up close and personal. Do you disagree? No, I Darvish, I think Darvish hasn't been his tip-top shape. And some days he does really well. And the obviously offense has been really inconsistent. Like Bogarts, who we just signed for, God knows how much, like over 200 million, I'm pretty sure, is swinging 250 at the moment.

And that's like obviously a downgrade from his 300. So it's like, obviously batters aren't doing as well as they should be, but at the same time, it's like we have days, like today, we won a game today. Was it eight to one? Yeah, we, we beat the Blue Jays today, nine to one. And that's like, that's how we should be playing. Obviously we can't expect to win, like by that margin every single game, but it's like, they should be swinging like that.

And we just haven't seen that. I have to wonder, like, is it the coaching? Is it like, is it just that these players don't care? And I think the players care.

I think they do. It's just, it's such a weird time. I think this is what it boils down to. And this is why our prior caller who wanted to look at Aaron Boone and say, oh, well, if you fire Aaron Boone and bring in someone to motivate the guy, man, baseball is hard. That's it.

There's no way around it. Baseball is not easy for the life of me. And if you want to look at things in the, in the, in a smaller scale, let's focus in on one player from the minute that that that Juan Soto became a San Diego Padre. He has played below expectations versus what he did in Washington, D.C. Is it because of the attention?

Is it easy to say? Is he now aware of the world? He came up in the World Series where most people learned about him and he obliterated everyone. And so why is it more difficult for him to find success now in San Diego? So it and then, oh, my God, his on base percentage is still high, but he he can't hit the ball at the same rate that he did.

This there's no easy answer or explanation to this. Baseball is difficult. Pitching is difficult. You Darvish can go from a four era and next several games. He can, you know, have an era of one or two.

The good thing about this is for the Padres, there's still enough time to potentially go on a run. And I think that's the bright side that you have to look. And as most of the players do. Yeah. You try to let go of what's taking place earlier in the season and you call it a wrap. Yeah, I, I think the same thing.

Baseball is difficult. You're right. I think there is no well, thank you. The answer will stay. Thank you. OK, no doubt about that.

Thank you, Kyle. Hey, shut up and go on for a while. Can I shut up now? No, you can keep going if you want. What do I do? Do I got to go all the way until the news flash?

What do I do? No, we could break in and have a very short second segment. Yes. So I can shut up now? Respectfully be quiet, but I would never say shut up, JR.

I'm allowed. It's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio. I'm going to take me a break. I'll be back here on CBS Sports Radio.

Don't move. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. I do want to say I've never called in. I love listening to you. I've been listening for years.

Man, your show or what you say is just beautiful. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. I want to try to get in as many callers here on this this break before we hit the news flash. So let's go ahead and talk to Nathan in Wisconsin.

You're on CBS Sports Radio. Go ahead, Nathan. Hey, JR. How are you doing tonight, my man? Good.

What's up? Hey, I agree with you. Like the third caller back about you not being interested in video games anymore. Me and my brother stopped playing those a while back, too, because it seems like every year all you're doing is buying for an updated roster. Right, right. Yeah, that's my point. It's not like the games have massively evolved. It's one thing to go from playing 2D to 3D. Like, what's the next thing?

Let me know when it comes, you know? Right. And maybe it's a couple of like a couple of different buttons that you press, you know, to like stiff arm or do a spin move. But basically we were spending 80 bucks for an updated roster. Oh, my. The games cost 80 bucks now? I'm certain like the PS5, when it first comes out, if they do like a bundle or whatever, like the Ultimate Madden would be like 130 for, you know, like it's like a special limited edition case or something. No, thanks. I'd rather spend that money on food and an experience, you know?

Exactly. No, thanks. And then, JR, I rate your show at a 99.9 over the Jim Rome show. Oh, well, thank you.

I'd still like 68. Thank you, Nathan. Well, JR, just one more quick thing, though. The reason why I gave you that high score is because you don't have like people making off phone calls, you know, like trying to put down the last caller or stuff like that.

Your show is down to earth and people just got to shut up and just listen to you when you're trying to prove a point. Oh, well, thank you, Nathan. Thank you. I appreciate it. You're welcome, JR. All right. Be well, brother. Thank you. You too, man. You have a great evening.

You too. Oh, that's so nice of him. I like it when the callers go back and forth with each other.

I love it. Let's go to James in San Diego. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

What's up, James? Thanks, JR. Thanks for taking my phone call. First time caller. Thanks. Appreciate you. I've been listening to you for a while, man.

But, hey, you know, growing up playing ball, I'm in my mid-forties now. Been here in San Diego probably more than half my life. Came down from L.A. And I wanted to talk about the Padres. And that last caller who talked about the Padres called in about us, Pods.

You know, it's unfortunate sometimes when people here from San Diego don't know sometimes what they're talking about. Even though I believe he did a little bit. But let's break this down. You said it. You know, there's 162 games.

Guys came to show up and play all the time. It's not always the manager's fault. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, I agree, James. And today was one of those days, it's like, we come in, you know, we put up a nine spot on the Blue Jays.

We're hoping tomorrow, and I'm on a group text with a bunch of my buddies, and it's like, better not lay an egg tomorrow. You know, we're a little frustrated here. Go ahead. Well, no, there's a lot of up and down. And thank you, James, I got to hit the break momentarily. There's a lot of up and down. And as you mentioned, oh, well, let's get rid of this manager.

Why? Because the team didn't score enough runs. And then when the team scores a lot of runs, is it the manager's fault? So, like, it's all about balance, man. Everything is balance. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio.

I'm going to provide you balance on the other side of the break. We're going to get some more of your calls. I'm going to tell you about the NBA star who has a new documentary that you probably want to see. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. JR, how are you? You are amazing. You should be called a sports professor. Anybody ever call you that? Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. Nope. Nobody besides you.

Thank you very much. It's the JR Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio. You know, amongst everything that we've talked about, I know we had this video game conversation. Some of the players not happy with their ratings in Madden. I'm saying to myself, man, what's changed about Madden in, I don't know, 15 years? Nothing. Just throwing new players. It's just the same old game. What do I know, though?

Someone who has literally been a video game walking is Steph Curry. There's so much content that you can consume nowadays in a variety of ways. The Netflix and HBO, HBO Max, Max, whatever the hell they call it now. So many different things. Well, on Apple TV, of which I think I told you last week, I ain't paying for no Apple TV.

I'm sure they'll send me a screener or something. Steph Curry. He has his own new documentary coming out. It's called Underrated.

It drops a couple of days from now on July 21st, so you don't have to wait too much longer for that. And it really dives into Steph Curry, I don't want to say coming out of nowhere, but being underrated. Just being the the Dell Curry son who was the tiny dude who had to go to Davidson and on and on and becoming one of the greatest basketball players ever. And so Steph Curry was actually he's been on a little bit of a TV tour.

He was having a conversation on NBC with Hoda Kotb about what makes his journey unique and why people should see this doc. And this is what Steph Curry had to say. So you describe yourself as a scrawny kid, a kid who didn't.

People always looked at and dismissed. He's not going to be able to do it. Why do you think it is that you went from that kid to this man sitting here with all of these accolades? What's the magic sauce? It's a combination of the support that I had around me and part of this documentary is kind of highlighting all of the family, friends, coaches, teammates that, you know, kind of uplifted me and those those kind of rough moments when I was coming up because I was a late bloomer, the smallest kid on my team and do it all like I just love what I got to do. I love the opportunity to prove myself right. More than like carry that chip on your shoulder. I got to prove everybody wrong. It's proving myself right that I could make it with hard work, undying faith in myself. And just kind of to your point, it's not just a sports kind of story.

It's not something for life. And I think hopefully people enjoy it. Yeah, I'll check it out when they send me a link. I ain't paying for Apple TV to see it. It's also going to be in theaters if you want to check it out. That's Steph Curry underrated. It's going to be on Apple TV and in certain movie theaters July 21st.

And it's pretty awesome. And this is wild because he doesn't look at Steph Curry is thirty five years old. Enjoy every moment that you have of him because God knows when he's going to slow down. He started off his career with a whole lot of ankle injuries. You didn't know if he was going to be able to max out. There was a point in time where he did look like, hey, this is just a skinny hurt guy that's not going to last in the league. And he has built himself to be one of the greatest players, definitely the greatest shooter that you've ever seen.

I don't find there to be any debate about that. And to see what he's done. Enjoy it.

Really enjoyed. He's thirty five years old. You're going to blink. And Steph Curry is going to be out of the league.

I know that sounds nuts. He's thirty five years old. Eight five five two one two four CBS. Lee is calling from San Diego.

You're on the JR sport brief show. Yo, I just want to talk about Messi. So Messi coming to Miami. It's a it's a new thing. So Beckham has already been in the MLS. I think I don't even know if he's out now.

Well, he Beckham actually owns the team that he played for into Miami. I don't know, but well, no, no. What do you know? You don't have to know. I'm telling you.

Oh, well, that name came and went. Messi is now playing for Miami. Have you seen the way that Miami is treating this man?

It's as if a god landed. In South Beach. Yeah, well, for the for the rest of planet Earth outside of America, he is the the most popular athlete on Earth. Yes, this is getting me excited for MLS. I'm not really a huge MLS fan, but you know, I live in San Diego. We're getting the MLS team next year, which I'm like, if I can see Messi playing live just on the block, I'm going to go like it's going to make money.

I think there are tons of people all over the country who hold the same sentiment as you do. You think MLS is going to be building up? Yes, I think MLS is going to continue to grow over the next bunch of years.

I mean, from from the league expanding, as you mentioned, San Diego is going to be getting a franchise. You think about the excitement surrounding Messi. I think that soccer is already growing. I think that Messi playing here is going to be a boon for the sport. Something else that we have to consider is that the United States of America is going to be, well, at least North America with the focal central point being the USA. We're going to have the World Cup here in a few years. So there's going to be massive interest. It's going to be good. I think a lot of people forget to realize that Kansas City after, you know, St. Louis, they lost the Rams and we feel bad about that.

The Midwest got super big on soccer, which I'm I'm happy to see, you know, the Columbus crew. Yes, absolutely. Yeah, you know, I'm happy to see that.

You know, actually, wait a second while I'm on the air. Can I give a quick shout out? But who is it? It's it's to a supermarket to Stump's Marketplace in Point Loma in San Diego. OK, everyone, you got to go there. They're great people. They you know, I'm cutting about the right now.

What it is. They make good subs there or something. What about the food?

I've actually never gotten a sub there, dude. I'm cutting up some meat right now. I've been listening to radio while I'm coming to eat. Oh, baby, I'm going to eat. Oh, OK. Oh, whoa, whoa. Hey, hey, chef. He was starting to get too excited there. I didn't know where that was going there. Has anybody ever shouted out a supermarket on the radio?

No, but that's why your show now goes from an 85 to an 86 rating. Because he shot. I don't even remember the name of the market. I don't remember the name of the call. What's what can be so exciting about a supermarket outside of finding messy there? Like what's exciting? Nothing. I think Lee got a little excited of his back and forth.

You know, Lee has you know, his calls are hit or miss. Oh, I don't know. I don't remember ever speaking to him. No, but what about what's exciting about a supermarket? I'm talking about him. Right. There's nothing exciting about a supermarket other than it just has whatever the other supermarket has in this country.

Not well, let me let me tell you something. Have you ever gone into a supermarket at a particular time of day shop? Yeah.

Where you can't move. Yes. No, not that time of day. No, you go into the supermarket and you start going, oh, man, I need to come back to the supermarket at this time of day.

Is it because it's something other than the food? Yeah, there you go. OK, got it.

Got it. You start going, oh, OK. What time is it? Is it? See, middle of the day is not good. You go too early and then everybody shopping, you go after work, everybody shopping. But sometimes you find that sweet spot where you go to the supermarket and you're just like, oh, man, where this lady come from? OK. And you just you just you whatever. Anyway, I'm saying too much anyway.

It's the general sport show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, shop help produce. What am I doing? Do I take another call or do we talk about messy? What do I do here?

I would I would take a quick call. I would go with Cliff because I think Cliff's going to be very to the point and succinct. OK. Hey, Cliff, you're calling from Birmingham. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up? Yeah. Yeah. I love listening to you all the time. Thanks. What's up?

Yes. I you know, I just feel like some of your callers are not put manly. They want to win all the time. They want their teams to win all the time. Sometimes in baseball, basketball or soccer, somebody got to win. Somebody got to lose.

So, you know, sometimes I just feel like they want too much. Oh, you call in some of the callers babies. They crybabies. You know what I'm talking about. Yeah. He called them. OK.

He called them wine and crybabies. Hey, thank you. When you come into Atlanta. Oh, I was in Atlanta today. You didn't say nothing. You didn't say hi. No, I was in Atlanta today. I thought about you. Oh, not enough.

You was you was in one of them Atlanta supermarkets, weren't you? No, no, no. They're looking at them.

Looking at all the hymns. Anyway, Cliff, I'll talk to you later, OK? Yeah. Yeah.

I'm not a big fan of him, but they in the supermarket. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. We're going to talk more about Messi and your calls on the other side.
