Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: October 25, 2019 (Pt. 3)


WELCOME BACK TO IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL . WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT BOB NUTTING AND I WANT TO GO BACK TO WHAT I JUST SAID. I DON’T THINK THERE IS ANYTHING THAT HE CAN SAY TO, OTHER THAN PAYROLL, WERE GOING TO SPEND MONEY. AND WE ARE GOING TO PUT A WINNER ON THEIR. BUT SPENDING MONEY IS MY POINT. THEY GOT A SPEND AT LEAST $100 MILLION. THEY GOT TO GO OUT AND FIND THE RIGHT PIECES. AND THAT THEY DON’T, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN ME BACK AS A FAN. IT ALL DEPENDS, IF HE COMES IN HERE AND HE ANNOUNCES THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE WHOLESALE MOVES AND CHANGES IN THE FRONT OFFICE AND ALL THAT OTHER STUFF, GET RID OF THE SCOUTING DEPARTMENT. IF HE TALKS ABOUT A LOT OF THAT STUFF, THEN I GUESS YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO HEAR ABOUT IT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. AND GIVE HIM A COUPLE YEARS AND SEE IF HE GETS IT RIGHT. OBVIOUSLY, HE NEEDS TO SPEND ON PAYROLL BUT HE’S NOT GOING TO COME OUT OF THEM GET A SPEND X AMOUNT OF DOLLARS. HE MIGHT SAY LISTEN, YOU KNOW HOW — DOUBLETALK. WE ARE GOING TO INVEST IN THE TEAM. BUT INVESTING IN THE TEAM COULD BE SPENDING MONEY IN THE DOMINICAN ACADEMY. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? IT’S ALL THE SAME YOU KNOW WE’VE BEEN HERE THAT WHEN IT COMES TO PAYROLL. YEAH. BUT I DON’T, I JUST THINK YOUR AVERAGE FAN OUT THERE, IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO INVEST IN THE TEAM, THE MAJORLY PRODUCT, THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO INVEST IN. YOU’VE GOT TO WIN THESE FANS BACK. YOU HAVE TO WIN THEM BACK. YOU ARE LOSING FANS. EVEN THOUGH ATTENDANCE WENT UP A LITTLE BIT. YOU ARE LOSING PEOPLE AT THE GATE. YEAH. AGAIN – IF YOU’RE NOT GOING OUT AND GETTING AN OUTFIELDER, IF YOU’RE NOT – THE WHOLE POINT ABOUT IT IS THEY ARE NOT GOING TO COMMIT TO THAT KIND OF THING. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO COMMIT TO THAT. THERE JUST TO BASICALLY SAY, HEY, WE INVEST IN PLACES OTHERWISE.
