This is the best of the Adam Gold Show Podcast brought to you by Coach Pete at Capital Financial Advisory Group.

Visit us at This is the Adam Gold Show. Familiar faces, obviously, got drafted to Cleveland with Austin Corbett, Richard Higgins, one of my former receivers in Cleveland. DJ Moore went through the draft process with him as well as Sam, just a couple of great guys and I've known Christian since 2015 back to the college days. So there's a lot of familiarity there and I'm looking forward to doing that.

But also, you didn't know the guys that I really don't know. This is the Adam Gold Show. Welcome to the Adam Gold Show. I'm him. Dennis Cox is here. He's on the ones and twos. That was the voice of Baker Mayfield.

Already in town. That's right. New Carolina Panthers backup quarterback.

No, I'm kidding. He will be the starter. Well, you know, there's still the battle for quarterback supremacy with the Panthers between Baker and Sam Darnold, Matt Corral, PJ Walker. Quarterback room is crowded, not room for four. Somebody's got to go.

If we all know who that's going to be. Sorry, PJ. I love the fact that the Panthers said right away, but we're not moving Sam Darnold. Okay. Fine. Fine.

All right. I mean, if you want an experienced backup, then yeah, well, they got it exactly either way. No matter who's the backup.

They have an experienced backup quarterbacks are now no pressure on Matt Corral to impress no pressure at all. But we'll talk a little bit about that. Probably in the first part of the show because Baker Mayfield will have a press conference at 1230 today.

But he's already spoken to and we'll bring you some of those highlights as well. Dennis, how did you do on your bets last night? I actually will.

Hayes Permar was not here. So I won them. The cooler was gone. Yes. All right.

Well, no action on my NBA bet. Right. Paulo Bancaro got shut down. Yeah. Very disappointing.

I know my, my because of injury though. No, no, they just, they've seen enough. Exactly. He played two games, kicked everybody's tail and that's it. Now it's time to look at the other players. My son went to go watch highlights this morning is an NBA freak. It was like, wait, Paula didn't play.

Sorry, kid. Well, that's it. He played two games.

That was enough. Go watch those highlights again. He was pretty impressive.

Tough break in the two games that he played. By the way, tomorrow on the program, John Shire will join us. So we'll talk about Paulo Bancaro and some of the other guys that went to the, went to the league this year. So we got a lot of things to talk about with John Shire, but that's tomorrow on the program today. We have a little bit of, you know, the Hurricanes will delve into free agency.

Not really. Tomorrow starts tomorrow at noon. We'll be right here in the middle of it.

We'll talk to Sarah civilian today. Well, they're really going to start signing guys on Thursday when you're not here. Right? Exactly. That's what happens Thursday that that that's when they will sign you have Getty Malkin, right? Right.

I don't think they're going to do that. He turned out. Malkin turned down six million a year, a little bit more than six million a year for four years from Pittsburgh. Really? Like, I don't see the Hurricanes doing better than that.

I don't see anybody for like 35 year old guy. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think they're doing better than that for you have Getty Malkin.

So if he's not going back to Pittsburgh on that number, he's not coming to Carolina. So we'll do some of that. We'll talk a little NBA Summer League and we'll get kind of figure out what the Hornets are doing.

We have I have not talked to not of the scribe in a couple of weeks, so we'll have not on and then we'll get into what happened last night. In the big a is it called the big a I'm sorry, just the a okay. Isn't that the silliest hashtag the Braves hashtag for the a I just seem so silly. I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong, but good for good for them.

Shall we begin? Yes, he did as a Mets fan and somebody who has experienced the worst of Edwin Diaz. Can I just say that I'm not used to Diaz closing out big games as easily as he did last night. I remember 2019 his first year with the Mets. I remember I don't know 10 blown saves or something silly like that where in a big situation.

I mean couldn't even breathe. But man, he was scorching last night third straight day with that. He appeared first time in a save situation. And one two three bottom of the ninth inning Mets win it for one first game of this NL East clash, which a little bit more than a month ago didn't look like it was going to be much of a clash. But the Braves have been awesome. The defending world champion Braves. I'm not an anti Braves guy. I'm the rare Mets fan who doesn't hate the Braves at all. They're fine.

I got no problem with them. Everybody understands the team that I hate the Cardinals hate the Cardinals and I think most of America hates the Cardinals to sure right at least the smart people anyway. Max Scherzer was dynamite for seven innings one of your wins. That's right, right Max Scherzer had to get at least more than 18 out. He did so the first out he got in the seventh the cash registers for Dennis.

Yeah, we have here we go. He had nine strikeouts. He gave up three hits didn't walk anybody just the Austin Riley home run in the seventh.

Give me the cash register. Oh, yes. I'm sorry. I had Austin Riley hovering last night at plus 375 the seventh inning was great to Oh fantastic. What an inning and it was the only run that the Braves would get even better Peter Lonzo doubled in the first run of the game in the third Louis Guillaume drove in two runs. Can we have the solo home run again?

Mets are up two and a half games now in the division heading to tonight's game David Peterson lefty for New York Braves are a little bit better against left-handed pitching than right-handed pitching Spencer Strider rookie for Atlanta, but he has had a tremendous year. So we could be looking at another really fun game and I promise that if the Braves win, I will treat it just as if the Mets won. Okay. No, I won't. No, I won't. We led with this because the Mets won. I am not above admitting that. Hey, I'm all for petty. I am not above admitting that Adam Golden Studio with my man coach Pete DeRuta with the Capitol Financial Advisory Group.

We're talking retirement and coach. I'm a simple guy, but I like colors. Tell me how I can color code money and get ready for retirement. I like colors to pictures. I like graphs.

I don't like just a bunch of words. And so what we try to do is we try to break down all those words on your statement all those numbers into three colors red green yellow people are amazed when they come in and most of the money is in the red category. I don't want that red means high horsepower potential. It also means high loss potential. So you have to it's a give-and-take you can be willing to do that or that yellow means liquid money.

You can get it anytime. It's not going to earn anything green gives you safe growth, but also gives you a lifetime income as we get closer to retirement. We need some green accounts. We need the green zone.

We call it in Baghdad. Green Zone was important. Green Zone is important for you to the next 10 people Adam. It's a thousand dollar value golden ticket. We're going to put together for you your very own total plan that has a green zone.

It's a traffic light. I hope it's green for you 800-661-7383 or text Adam to 21000 for coach Peter ruta. All right, let's let's move on that was fun. Say hello to Baker Mayfield day in Charlotte. He will be introduced to the media.

1230 press conference, but he's already talked with our friend Kristen Balboni down there. He's aware that his former team is scheduled in week one. There's a lot of relationships there in Cleveland that I'm extremely grateful for. I mean, it's been four years of my life of a lot of changes and growing up that very thankful for looking forward to playing against former teammates and familiar faces.

That's always fun when you get to compete against people, you know, for me, it's about just winning. It wouldn't matter if it was Cleveland or somebody else. It's the first game of the year. You want to set the tone for your guys around you and just the whole building in general.

Obviously, it's it's Cleveland. So there's history there. It's not like it's not going to mean anything extra to me, but I can't handle it that way. I'm just going to try and handle it in the best way possible.

And that's just to try and find a way to go in. But it's there's going to be extra energy on that one and it's going to be a great one to set the tone for the year. So wait a second. You just said that it's like any other game and then you admitted that it wasn't because we all know that it isn't. Yeah, there's going to be extra energy for this one, but it's like any other game. No, it's not.

No, it's not. You know, that guy wants to win that 152 nothing. Oh my gosh, he's going to so rub it in Jimmy Haslam's face.

Oh, of course. And he should. I'm not even saying that he shouldn't.

Yeah, and I'm here for Petty. He absolutely, look, we've said this before about Baker Mayfield. I'm not under any illusions that Baker is something that that he probably isn't.

Okay, but I've also Dennis. You've heard me say this last year's if you're judging Baker Mayfield by last year, then you are you are sadly mistaken about Baker Mayfield because he played the entire season. I think the injury was a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Not his throwing shoulder his other shoulder, but guess what that hurts too. And it definitely impedes your ability to play and prepare and do everything you want to do. It probably hurts you throwing. You need to healthy shoulders.

Yeah, even though you only throw with one of them. I mean you take a hit it hurts and and he's a mobile guy runs around. So yeah, he takes some shots.

He's not a big guy to begin with. So how's it feeling Baker? I feel great. First of all, you know, it happened so early in the year last year that got used to the pain guy used to not being able to sleep on my side and all that do it, but I had to do shoulder rehab pretty much the whole season from September on. And so when I finally got the ligaments healed and all that everything around it was already stronger because of the rehab. I was constantly knowing that this healing process and rehabs been extremely smooth and so very happy with it. Very lucky.

I mean, thank God it feel great. So I'm looking forward to going to this training camp feeling better than I have in a long time and ready to go. You know what?

I'm interested in. I mean, actually I want to hear one more thing from Baker and then I'll tell you what I'm really interested in because I am wondering if he has spoken with Sam Darnold. We have. Yeah, he grabbed my number during the whirlwind of events following just to we were trying to figure out how to get guys together to throw and the easiest way to do it with help last minute. This all is is to just to get together in Charlotte before training camp and just to get a little last minute throwing session and tune up before camp and just just be around each other and let everybody know that there's no awkwardness there. We're there to help each other out and help this team win football games.

That is very mature. I like to hear that. Look, I'm looking forward to seeing how this works. I hope the Panthers have a good year. I really do. I don't want them to fail.

I would would like them to succeed. So let's have let's you know sing happy songs and all of that. All right, I am curious what what happens to all those insurance commercials. The ones that were done in Cleveland the ones that were done at the stadium.

Yeah, is it was it called Progressive Field short, right? I honestly do not know. I don't know.

So what happens to all those commercials? Do we just now do them at Bank of America? Yeah, why not Baker live at Bank of America is that's where he lived right? He lived at the stadium.

Well, he actually did talk to Kristen Balboni didn't have the cut of saying. Yeah, just trying to figure out, you know where to live and all that stuff right now is like well, it's easy. They're in Main Street right there.

Yeah, full lovely. All right, so good for good for all the adults down there on Main Street in Charlotte. All right, the 150th Open Championship. He sinks three foot. That will always be funny for me.

It starts Thursday morning at the old course at st. Andrews. I need a ruling every once in a while. I ask for a ruling. We actually have that. Look at that.

Well done. My question is this because I listened to some of the press conferences this morning. And I have never heard just in the middle of sentences about st. Andrews. I have never heard as many people call it like I know it's the home of golf.

But once that's mentioned once why does it have to be mentioned so many times? Yeah, so is it a branding thing? Do you have do I have to say st. Andrews home of golf? Do I have to include that in the sentence when I mentioned the old course the home of golf? Do I have to say that it's like a NASCAR thing?

It might get it's like, you know, I gotta think Powerade got to thank my you know, the Chevy crew here. Can I tell a true story Pepsi true story about Joe DiMaggio? Okay, this is no joke. DiMaggio was invited to Cal Ripken's record-breaking game is Iron Man streak. No DiMaggio played with Lou Gehrig.

So that's why DiMaggio was invited. So this is what September of 95 think the the 6 September 6th of 1995 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, by the way, the Orioles are on fire. Good for good for Baltimore. No, I have some friends who are big Orioles fans and I love that ballpark and that's the way that city loves its baseball team.

Absolutely love it. So good for them. They've had a they've fallen on some hard times, but at the Cal Ripken Junior record-breaking game DiMaggio was there. So DiMaggio was one of the people who made like very quick speeches on the mound during the ceremony. And when he was introduced. He was introduced as the greatest living ballplayer. And I thought well Willie Mays is still alive.

So there's a problem there. Not that DiMaggio wasn't great. But I found out that DiMaggio.

In his contract when you in when he makes speeches. Had to be introduced really as the greatest living ballplayer. Okay, and I'm like, wait a second, but that's not even true again.

One of the greats no question about it. Sure, but interesting. Okay, so it is contract. It's sort of like a tour rider where I need only blue and white M&Ms. I don't want the orange ones. I don't want the red ones. I don't even know if they have white M&Ms.

They probably do at the M&M store. But anyway, that's so that's a true story. That's a true story. I got completely sidetracked from all of that. Earlier today Tiger Woods three-time champ twice at the home of golf at St. Andrews.

He had his pre-event press conference and we knew it was coming. The question about the Rebel Alliance, right? The question the golfers who all went to the dark side.

Thank you playing for live golf. Well, I would nerd out here in a moment, but I'm going to derail the conversation. Go ahead.

I just derailed it three times. You said the Rebel Alliance. Did I screw that up?

Yeah, the Rebel Alliance were the good people. Oh my fault. Gosh, Joe. No, Joe Obius is down to Hall losing his mind. I'm about to lose it myself.

I'm keeping my cool over here. Who should I have referred to? Surely the Evil Empire. The Evil Empire. Yeah. God, that's terrible because I've seen all the movies.

They're fine movies. All right. So I apologize. I apologize to you. Joe's never going to forgive me and other people.

Other people are never going to forgive me. And again, I'm not even arguing. So anyway, Tiger was talking about the players who went to the dark side. Yes.

What they've done is they've turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position. Some players have never got a chance to even experience it. They've gone right from the amateur ranks right into that organization.

And now really get a chance to play out here and what it feels like to play a tour schedule or to play in some big events. Yeah. Yeah.

I think the first part of that is probably the most important. That the Dustin Johnson's Brooks Koepka's Phil Mickelson's of the world. The Mickelson, believe it or not, it's more understandable because he's pretty much done. But that these guys have essentially flipped the bird to the reason why Dustin Johnson could command one hundred and fifty million dollars in guaranteed money to go play for the lived for the live series. Right. I mean, if Dustin Johnson doesn't build a career on the PGA Tour, which included two major championships, 20, I think 20 or 24, I think 24 victories on tour. If he doesn't do that on the tour, he doesn't have this opportunity to go play for. I mean, silly money.

Same thing with Brooks Koepka. I mean, these guys. So I think Tiger in that in that regard is right.

There's also a problem. And Tiger talked about this as well, that many of those players and not the Phil Mickelson's or DJs or Brooks Koepka's of the world, but many of those players are going to have to deal with this. How do you get into major championships? Playing this series because there is no entry point other than through the official World Golf rankings and you're not earning points, not at least not yet, but really not any time soon. That is a possibility that some players will never ever get a chance to play in a major championship, never get a chance to experience this right here.

Walk down the fairways at Augusta National. I mean, that to me, I just don't understand it. I understand what Jack and Arnold did because playing professional golf at a tour level versus a club pro is different. And I understand that transition and that move and the recognition that a touring pro versus a club pro is. But what these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice?

What is the incentives to go out there earning in the dirt? It's June 19th, 2006, but it all started May 6th, 1997 with the announcement that the Hartford Whalers were coming to North Carolina. It's a story of transition, of heartbreak, of figuring it out on the fly. The Canes Corner look at the 25th anniversary of the move presented by the Aluminum Company of North Carolina.

Listen now, find Canes 25th anniversary wherever you get your podcast. Alright, I don't know about that last part because I think everybody's got a competitive fire. I mean, you are competing for a lot of money, even though the tournaments are kind of empty otherwise.

So I don't know about the last part. Yeah, so you can still win $4 million on winning a tournament. Right, and I do think that the players there are trying to get better and trying to win, so I don't want to disparage that. But, man, the first part about majors, how do you get into major championships? If you're not a major champion already, and they've got a bunch of major champions on that tour. Bryson DeChambeau won a U.S. Open. He's got a 10-year U.S. Open exemption and a few more years of exempt status into other majors, at least at this point until the majors potentially change their rules, which they might.

But so there's a bunch of guys who are sort of exempt, but there's a lot of guys who are not. So if you're Abe Answer or Taylor Gooch or this kid, Matthew Wolf, who came out, he, Victor Hovland, and Colin Morikawa turned pro basically at the same time. Morikawa's got two majors. Hovland has kind of threatened a little bit, but is still trying to break through, but he's still one of the best players in the world.

Matthew Wolf's fallen on hard times and Wolf went over to live. How does Wolf get into a major championship? His official world golf ranking right now is in the high 70s.

It's going to plummet. The OWGR is part of how majors determine their fields. So if he's not earning world rankings points, and he won't, and he's not playing in PGA Tour events, which winning those gets you into, and most of them gets you into the Masters or some, it helps raise your world ranking as well. And there are certain events that will automatically get you into some majors. These guys, I'm not sure they thought it all the way through, but there is a ton of money.

And if that's what you're playing for, that's what you're playing for. One other thing that Woods said, and he talked about Greg Norman, the guy who's fronting the Live series. He's the CEO, the commissioner. And Woods understands that Norman has had it in for the PGA Tour for about 30 years. I know Greg tried to do this back in the early 90s.

It didn't work then, and he's trying to make it work now. And I still don't see how that's in the best interest of the game. You know, what the European Tour and what the PGA Tour stands for and what they've done, and also all the professional, all the governing bodies of the game of golf and all the major championships, how they run it. I think they see it differently than what Greg sees it.

There is no question the majors, the USGA, the RNA, the PGA of America and Augusta National. Those four bodies do not like what Live is doing. They do not like it. They are going to either tweak their rules or I don't know that we'll see an outright ban, but we are going to see alterations to qualification process. We might see more of a reliance on world rankings.

I don't know. And they all sit on the board of the official World Golf Rankings. Now, even if they got points, they get limited points. So it might not be that big a deal.

But it's it's a problem. And the majors do not appreciate what Live. It's not what Live represents, but they do not appreciate the tour. And also, if we're being honest, Live hasn't been honest. Really, Greg Norman hasn't been honest. Anyway, Wood's support was invaluable today for the PGA Tour. Oh, yeah.

Of course, it might not matter. And we're going to talk about the lawsuit later. Because without a lawsuit, the the Department of Justice has opened up an investigation into antitrust violations by the PGA Tour. And we will talk with an attorney later in the program with some expertise in antitrust situations. So that's coming up in about two thirty.

Real quick, tee times. Charlotte's Web Simpson. Why are you laughing? Charlotte's Web Simpson will be in the first what? No, no, it's. Never mind, something just clicked in my head about Charlotte. He lives in Charlotte. Oh, Charlotte's Web.

Yeah, get it. That's very good. Charlotte's Web Simpson will be in the first group out at six thirty five a.m. That's local time.

One thirty five a.m. Eastern Time will play with two good players. Paul Lowry, who won. You remember the Jean Van de Velde? Yeah. Lowry ended up winning that in a playoff. Yeah, that's right. Full tin cup. Oh, my gosh.

Ridiculous. So Paul Lowry and Minwoo Lee is good young player from New Zealand. That will be the first group group out. Tiger is near the end of the tee times. He's like the sixth to the last group out just before 10 a.m. local time here. So it's two fifty nine p.m. in Scotland at the home of golf. Nine fifty nine a.m. here, not at the home of golf with Matthew Fitzpatrick, U.S. Open champion and Max Homer, who is a Tiger Woods fanboy.

OK, it's going to be tough for Max Homer to concentrate in his first two rounds of the open championship at the home of golf. This is the Adam Gold Show.
