Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: October 9, 2019 (Pt.3)


WELCOME BACK TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. WE WILL GO OUT TO THE PHONE LINES IN A SECOND. HOW ABOUT THE CARDINALS TODAY? THEY HAVE $174 MILLION PAYROLL. WHICH IS $101 MILLION MORE THAN THE PIRATES. THE PIRATES $25 MILLION MAN, 25 MAN PAYROLL, 25 MAN ROSTER PAYROLL IS $28 MILLION. LOWEST IN BASEBALL BY FAR. CANNOT COMPETE WITH THOSE KIND OF NUMBERS. THAT IS NOT COMPETING. HOW MANY TEAMS HAVE ONE PLAYER THAT MAKES $28 MILLION? $160 MILLION FOR FOUR YEARS, THAT ON TO DO IT. IF YOU WANT TO PEOPLE’S ATTITUDES AROUND TOWARD YOU IN THE BALL CLUB, THAT IS WHAT YOU DO. GERRIT COLE IS A FREE AGENT. THEY NEED A HITTER. THEY NEED A LOT. THAT WOULD GO A LONG WAY. DO YOU THINK GERRIT COLE WOULD ENTERTAIN COMING BACK? SAY THE PARENTS MATCHED THE HIGHEST OFFER. THERE IS NO RISK INVOLVED. YOU KNOW WHAT THE PIRATES SHOULD DO, THEY SHOULD OFFER CONTRACTS TO THE FREE AGENTS SO THEY LOOK GOOD IN THE PUBLIC. JUST A STEP BELOW WHAT OTHER TEAMS WILL OFFER. THEY HAVE DONE DUMBER THINGS. LET’S KEEP THE PIRATES ROLLING. THE DODGERS ARE PRE-1. IT COULD POTENTIALLY BE DODGERS CARDINALS. WE WILL GO OUT TO HERB IN SCOTT TOWNSHIP. HELLO. HOW ARE YOU? I AM HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE PIRATES BUT NOT THE CURRENT PIRATES. ABOUT THE 1960 PIRATES. THIS WEEKEND IS THE 59th ANNIVERSARY OF THAT WORLD SERIES WIN. AND THERE IS A BIG EVENT GOING ON ON SUNDAY AT NOON. FOR A COUPLE HUNDRED FINS GET TOGETHER ALL THE TIME AND THEY REPLAY THE RADIO BROADCAST OF THE GAME. IT IS A FUN DAY. EVERYBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THE GOOD PIRATES. LET’S GO BACK AND ENJOY THE NOSTALGIA OF 1960. I APPRECIATE THAT. I DON’T REALLY WANT TO GO BACK. I WANT TO ENJOY THE FUTURE PIRATES. YOU ARE OUT OF LUCK. HAVE YOU GONE TO THAT? I HAVE NEVER GONE. LET’S GO BACK OUT TO THE PHONE LINES. HELLO, TIM. I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY THE GENTLEMAN THAT CALLED EARLIER ABOUT THE CART THING. THE REASON WHY THEY TOOK HIM UP THE SIDELINE TUNNEL IS TWO REASONS. I ACTUALLY WORKED THERE. IS THE BALL THERE IS NO STAIRS. IF YOU KNOW THE LAYOUT OF THE STADIUM. THERE ARE STAIRS LEADING TO THE LOCKER ROOM. THEY ARE ACTUALLY FOUR CARTS. I THOUGHT THERE WERE THREE. THE CARDS ARE PART AT THE TOP. AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP. IT IS ALSO THE AMBULANCE IS USUALLY PARKED ON THE VISITORS SIDE TUNNEL. WE HAD VIDEO, OUR PHOTOGRAPHER SHOT VIDEO OF HIM GETTING LOADED INTO A PART AT THE BOTTOM. WHEN THEY BROUGHT HIM TO THE SIDELINES, THEY DID NOT KNOW WHERE THEY WERE TAKING HIM. I THOUGHT HE WAS IN SUCH A STATE THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN WHERE THEY WERE TAKING HIM. I AM THINKING AT THE TIME IT WAS MAYBE MORE OF A LOGISTICAL THING. WHO WOULD’VE FIGURED IT WOULD HAVE BROKEN DOWN. THANK YOU. LET’S GO OUT TO JEAN. YOU HAVE ABOUT 10 SECONDS. JAMES WASHINGTON IS NOT PLAYING THIS WEEK.
