Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

-- Now word excel and -- swollen already roller board or the four. Fun cleaning. Mean -- And so. On its rate. Or four brought to you by Marvin windows -- suspensions. All suspension. Yes sir it is -- no sport is delta more suspensions and baseball. And the biggest player to be handed a suspension is Alex Rodriguez. Iran is fighting his suspension through legal system right now will -- end -- sitting down and serving any time of his massive suspension. They have attempt to suspend him for 211. Games. Correct. To eleventh he was able to appeal. Heatley. Hearing that plate after that he would be to a game. Will be -- now. He's going to be suspended but it's going to be dramatically -- it -- top. For him to Peru have been trying to prove -- between 530. It's funny I think if your it's what you rooting for fewer. It's not a question the Yankees right what are you rooting for them to be stuck with -- Iran salary knowing that he's no longer the player he once was and here he's not coming. Or we know you don't like he. We come face is my whole life legacy. -- My whole live buy tickets are you worried about a Q would you rather have a right on the Yankees but the old all the money or would you rather have gone for the Yankees anecdotal. I want the Yankees owe him a lot of money -- why so many ways you don't want to be started -- right you just want the Yankees to be off the -- expertise is needed mountains CDs did you do. Now. -- -- become a multi multi UT's accused. Is before that the hold my cousin was a single time remember when but I think humans. The -- Of course the first time he would he'd ever had he be. He's -- it Barbara Walters wanted to. Work well. But it would have to be afraid. Alex like what happened here right now after its 2013 -- Robert Kraft negotiate the and it felt -- from Israel. But what you can do anything in 2000 there amongst the guys aren't there are problems you ought to maybe. I'm so heated up right now on and so pissed off that down. I can't picture and Alice why have many lawyers I'm going to Rick Smith. Phony phony phony phony baloney. Yes we are Michael two seasons ago Melky Cabrera was suspended after winning the all star game MVP. And then that offseason he was rewarded with a two year contract worth sixteen million dollars. Is them is Major League Baseball doing a bad job to turn players from using these with the suspension system they have in place. I don't they're doing a bad -- but it probably more they could do. Like what one suspensions -- well without. Without going back into renegotiating the collective bargaining agreement nothing you can do without -- regarding what -- what they've done so far is pretty good. -- Jhonny Peralta. Was suspended for fifty games now he did play in the post season. It fortunately his team did not advance to the World Series but now it's up to everybody else. -- take that -- its ability for -- -- he began after the turn but what happens plays in the post season. The St. Louis Cardinals reward Johnny brought that would say it's free agent contract. So it's of Major League Baseball or is it -- saying. Debate at the masters -- I really don't care Russia. A march of the team to hear what he's saying this guy as you'll get an applicant gets caught again -- but you're saying you're betting on the fact that's not gonna happen. I don't know. I don't I would tell you -- public -- but I think the two games to get things are how we looked when he came back from that fifty games it sure didn't seem to matter I mean unless he was right back on the stuff. He was the best hitter arguably they have and that's here. Jacob if we don't miss cuts -- -- -- that's the so when I get a cut back to -- -- cut ever. -- -- Anyway. What's gonna do -- felt very. Whether they'll very is -- call Els Els right Dell's bells. And bells bells bells batteries -- in the left field seat on how -- are today are drawn to it. And it it would Jacoby. About probably -- Jacoby don't you tell me. That's it that's kind of almost a crime that you might get from John Sterling it'll be rough. Suffering from what deport -- -- There and -- was I was there are many athletes have tried to avoid their suspension of play the blame on other people. Who has been the biggest suspension -- -- not there and. Or A-Rod they Melchior it's got to be on the -- tried the hardest I mean he and his cousin had that -- you don't know Von Miller. Von Miller gets the award. You'll have not if you're just try to get somebody. It wasn't just the average -- somebody who's gonna help you out. You actually got in urine collector. And had him on the take. And he was successful the urine collector. Spit you out of this story and then they got caught because the time might match -- -- a candidate here. Von Miller I think leave the clubhouse Brian Brohm Brian bronzes in the conversation. Try to get off on a technicality. A-Rod everybody else and his crew was guilty but he says no I didn't do anything. Melky Cabrera in the fake web site. With the -- -- I think I've worked hard that's like goat milking them for equipped to defeat the coming up with the -- quipped it was just so poorly done and obviously really 21 century problems but I thought. But it's the 21 century 21 victory salute but barely. Right heavy air like he did it on a -- well I mean it was like it was is battling redundancy could be he tried -- 21 century solution but I did it with a twentieth century -- that this geology -- that tell you. How far certain guys who go to -- course I have to. -- you -- you because -- do anything Indianapolis the guy of the parties there is like Shaq was apparently aerials event. Onterrio Smith -- Ontario. Be that guy from I don't know about the guy not a -- don't know I don't -- Ontario -- that they give me an area of tired of Ontario and they'll they'll. Please I beg you and -- are you are you not talking about an -- about a former running back for the vikings I believe who the with the -- -- program. There is payouts ever -- Until we get Andy what are yes and what -- after Christmas last year. Well it's moss is -- -- -- it straight cash on her whole future I think he'd be two seconds mr. Patrick in some areas but don't -- give me I -- a couple of -- also alternate Friday here we -- he had poison me at -- rush earlier and now we need those guys for weeks. -- John Thornton melon Brendan Shanahan to date and is waiting to hear what the suspension will be. So I ask you goers what do you think the suspension will be perch on the. America back to your original -- all the information I've heard people -- and I'm going back games. They're not they have not made a quick decision that you look at that two ways one way could be they already know what days -- they think. They're stringing the Bruins along and Shawn -- along. They don't want a role in this week and it makes them look like they're being thoughtful and deep and all that stuff. And got to come back and slam with a fifty game suspension or factor the fact if they're waiting. Could be interpreted as Shawn -- Has a very good history he's known as -- unfortunately. But he's the guy who. Played by the league's rules written and unwritten. He has. He has not been seen as a troublemaker. He showed genuine remorse for his actions. And the league's gonna come back and they aren't. We don't support it. We'll give a strong suspension but it won't be over the top like we would with a repeat offender eight gates and Microsoft eight games. -- -- -- -- Well we're probably not gonna find out today affected seems very likely according to people on Twitter it was a bit a debate going on -- he's not gonna be 24 -- -- an hour before we got out whether you think this. Weird telling her gavel and -- Benjamin. Joseph and Joseph the -- Emily says it seems very likely that we will find out for awhile just that can -- you know votes to be shot under through. Which would have -- to process I don't know I -- -- -- -- accurate details with that we don't support there we -- you look at my eyes. That's not surprised. Drew Neitzel lead -- did it is Joseph the other night. Was tweeting about the Calgary wasn't there close here this week she moved. Now the why don't do that why you're here that he had to force pat. That's. Spirited. You know call them out she's an organized here not travel is not what we're here. Burlington studio. Of sports is it much easier you're Newton. -- -- Yet he said he also what you're gonna beat though I mean. It's a little early to start going after them that -- well what about the -- out of your your second B it's a little early to start the row and they hate makers like. Aren't hot on the history authorities found regular. Apparently back quarterback he's been lying in there for a few days weight it's equally and everything -- because as. Seems very likely -- that is certainly standing strong during this speech. Well thought they would not very good journalists within your -- forgot. To remodel like this -- can't -- that. It. Just -- you know it seems very likely.
