Let’s talk about today. New beginnings and whatnot. (16:20) Let’s talk about the Yankees. This team is too good right now. Pitching is lights out. The bats are firing. 50 wins already. Biggest division lead in baseball. What’s the mentality right now? (21:00) What about the Cleveland Guardians? 6 games over .500 and 1 game back in the division. Do they go make trades now?

It’s everywhere. (17:15) Dan Snyder won’t be testifying. Roger Goodell will be testifying. The House Oversight Committee wanted them both there. Snyder was a lock to not show up.

Just stay with me here. (5:00) Tom Brady is not going to tell you the truth. He loves to fool people. It’s what he does.

Today’s word of the day is ‘copy/paste’ as in no edits as in no fixes as in PR has sent a message and you just send it out to the masses as in Jack Del Rio the DC for the Commanders had to copy/paste his apology. What did he do? He had some comments on protests and the January 6th insurrection. One side he said was riots! The Capitol storming was a ‘dust-up’. Ron Rivera didn’t care. Some players didn’t care. But everyone else sure did enough for the team to make him apologize. (18:55) The FBI did nothing to protect hundreds of gymnasts around the country when Larry Nassar was running wild.

Today’s word of the day is ‘66’ as in 66 massage therapists as in a report came out yesterday that Deshaun Watson used 66 massage therapists in a 17-month window while with the Houston Texans. There have been 24 civil suits against Watson. More details allege that the Texans may have helped set up some of these meetings. The NFL better start doing real work now to figure out what is right. Deshaun Watson’s future in the NFL should very much be in doubt (although it should have been before). (22:55) Review: Unknown. (27:35) Joe Maddon was fired as the manager of the Angels. They had lost 12-straight games. Mike Trout couldn’t get a hit. Shohei Ohtani couldn’t hit. They went from first to 10 games back in the AL West. (35:10) It looks like another manager could be on the hot hot hot seat. Don Mattingly. The Miami Marlins held a 90-minute team meeting before its 12-2 win over the Nationals. The team is underachieving. The team has some issues in the clubhouse. And they cannot blame me anymore! (43:55) NPPOD. (46:00) The Denver Broncos are being sold to Walmart for $4.65B. That’s a nice chunk of change.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

He’ll reportedly get $200M for this. By comparison: Tiger Woods has made $120M in his career. This is a LOT of money. Dustin Johnson will reportedly get $120M. Let’s hear what Phil had to say about going LIV Golf. Laughable stuff. (14:30) So You Wanna Talk to Samson!? Someone asked me about Deshaun Watson again. 24th lawsuit popped up.

Today’s word of the day is ‘Bruce!” as in Bruce Springsteen as in Coldplay as in last night I went to a concert and Bruce showed up! Couldn’t believe it! (14:35) Welp, Joe Girardi got fired. It happened. I thought the Phillies would wait until after the season, but it happened. The Phillies were a dumpster fire. There was too much money spent in payroll for the Phillies to be as bad as they are. Giardi was in his 3rd year with the team and it just didn’t work out. We all knew this was going to be the case and the players couldn’t take it anymore. (24:45) The Los Angeles Angels stink. They are bad. 11 straight losses. Mike Trout can’t hit. The bullpen can’t get outs. They went from 1 game back all the way to 8.5 games back in 2 weeks. Ohtani can’t hit. He’s been average pitching. Can they turn it around? (29:35) Review: Poisoned - America’s Fentanyl Problem. (36:40) What is going on in Tampa? The Rays hosted a PRIDE night and it didn’t go as planned (or maybe it did). Some players on the team refused to wear the rainbow logo to for PRIDE night. Manager Kevin Cash spoke with he media to address what happened. So did pitcher Jason Adam. And that’s when things took a turn. (47:45) NPPOD. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Today’s word of the day is ‘request’ as in please show up as in are you going to come as in Roger Goodell and Dan Snyder were asked to come answer questions by the House Oversight Committee and guess what? Request denied! There is no chance they are coming without a subpoena. None! Will Juan Soto be traded? If you follow nothingpersonal.npds on TikTok you would have known the answer last week! It’s not happening. And now the Nationals GM is on the record saying it won’t. So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Sometimes we let Coca’s friends ask questions. Today his friend Pasquale sent in a good one. He wants to know when team’s start looking for trades in MLB. He got an email from his team saying it’s half-way to the trade deadline and that got him thinking. Is it too early? Review: Our Father. We need to have another discussion about guns. Sorry. But it needs to happen. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation trial is over. What happened? NPPOD. Dustin Johnson is getting big money from LIV Golf. Will he ever play a PGA Tour event again?  (00:00:16) - Word of the Day (00:12:10) - Juan Soto (00:19:40) - So you want to talk to Samson (00:30:15) - Our Father review (00:36:00) - Depp/Heard Trial (00:42:05) - Pick of the day Learn more about your ad choices.
