Two down one ago welcome in double coverage. Tens ever master control on crushing dark union company till 11 o'clock. Are edging Madison on the other grant an eight year Justin Berry coming up with James Moran. At smartest Moran associate editor tiger rag dot com covering LSU baseball tigers got off to a three those are two games against army blinking them. And AM to three victory on Sunday against air force welcome in now James Warren what's going on Jane's argument. It excellent out of the box this weekend checking now Alice you army team to a double header and one which said Jarrett O'Shea through that no hitter in. You know did you seen much reaction to LO wasn't a complete game it was a nine innings did you did you see any of that. Really I mean when you talk especially because I mean he was on such a limited it's out there I mean it's now it would have been it would go nine innings under any circumstance so it's not so. You know the thing is six notre LSU history right the first since 1979. Five of the six have been seven innings. About a cup but. So meticulous account I would think now I mean. I think it's pretty impressive no matter how many in the view for. Yeah I mean JG cover a lot of baseball I was talking about earlier. Can I got a little bit of reaction a well it was only seven and no hitter in house like okay well you're just being. I mean I've never seen a no hitter any car yes I knew I mean I've been probably if you Watergate game as a kid and covered 200 LSU game to beat writer or Sheen. Annuity from close it out like that that well now that you have me do on the air imagined he had tea. Point yet there are all at seven innings and open. Nine inning games so I mean. And talented so far been light. You know an update professionals and you don't really wanna it's really dangerous to the Armon. Local in the like for instance via an earlier spot that. If there was in game like you would hope after seven and an answer that is absolutely I don't think they would. They let him go Biondi pitch mark community view of the peace partner. Prominent as he walked I don't believe that I think you know it in any company now. So. I mean I don't think it cheapens it very much I mean obviously. You know he'd been hiding something how about the not no hitter. I don't political chicks a you know would get out and happened almost thirty years you know you think it has been you know baseball factory but that's eligible to vote on impressions. Hang out talk and LSU baseball would James Moran at smartest Moran on Twitter associate editor for tiger rag dot com covering LSU baseball and James. So overall I mean he can't take away too much from. This weekend but it this one kind of went as expected taking care visits against army into gains and air force on Sunday. Yeah I think. You know I think the first week of the year attempted to be weird so I mean look around the country saw some results you arteries and I'd now. I just think that's the nature of the beast we talked about early in the season. You know approach to target she will think could've went. I mean I think you'd you'd unexpectedly got out of the better guys in Atlantic Ocean it would be great. That you know Kramer Roberts in cold Freeman would be really Greg Eichmann and poverty and corruption but he came back from a broken states and get two home runs in the weaker quoting it's its first step after the surgery. But I think what the take away from me really out while rush. You know I think air walker our starter if you're really solid effort nonchalant. There yet one in Portugal that from but for the most argues it was pretty dominant and from what I want talked to that airport on at the yet pitch against. Was a better hitting team than the the army team that coach him I'm not overmatched on Saturday. So I was pretty impressed him body to a lot of strikes at Alec has stopped on the mound the way. There was breaking ball and chain to over. Carolina crime in the towel. And also it say about the 21 on the corner judgment and Dick slaughter they stand. I mean to hit between them about almost 500 slaughter at home run in the second app chip and a home run lefty against elect yesterday so. I mean you know don't kid yourself are marketed at five on hurdles he's Ernie inquiry like that but I think just for them to get off the start they did. I mean that you you kind of know you in the guys I mentioned. The two stud pitchers Eichmann. And your middle of combinations and that the difference for the steadying pretty good and being great in my opinion and yet that's freshmen on the New York it. Credit card then you sir Carolina option and to recommit starting pitchers in. You know that that's obviously a key to winning a lot of each match so. You know prodigy and you don't want to reach much into that competition in the states and in other player Maryland came this week in the preakness and they're going to use it and take on. Number one TCU a couple of in a pretty good teams and Taylor and and a bra and Texas tracks so you know the road and get more difficult year but through three games that mean it's hard to map out how it went better for. James and again today kind of comes with you know ground assault consider in the weekend but you know it looks like in games that I watched it looked lie. This team was hardened and seasoned a little bit by the way they'll run that they were able to get on last year as as time over achieving team they just look like a very methodical businesslike approach. And that's it and it's usually good sign for a veteran team that has so much so many expectations surrounding him you would you agree that. The fact that you know when you get so close and don't make it I think the thing you have to really dark pants is. Trying to get that expectation just earlier blogs out there the next year and you get super regional and that you have to move you know take that next. You know you don't you don't get there aren't used to you were there you're all you have to. Work your way back to appoint an into the open competent you know you don't get the sense that things are looking past this weekend and on. Pretty easy to mean between. Aren't enough base in profit competition and you know he seemed to get better humid then in through trying to battle or fossil and pop chart percent. Tree critical shore baseball game military appreciation week. You know. Whether it was of the relatives of the fallen police officers burst pitches that are. You know parachute the paratroopers jumping in to what the ceremonial ball that. For the first pitch I mean you know a lot stop the one on the weekend. Besides just the things well in play back the that he would they would. But it's not been put toward clean based on investment they make one airs Sunday which those. Made by accident but growing air and then secretly tell import the three run bomb. You know they played spectacularly on defense there. They're pitching was written on top to bottom I don't want to get work in that it didn't just because good their starters were on the adding that to date etched. But on all in pretty clean pretty focused yet focused and clean would become a word I use that. Apparently played a pretty good description of that well on the they went out there today they played like they were the better even. You know it comes to quail partly in vote against. Army in the first game and jump up applying on the mountain. You know it took care business in the second game our exposure no hitter. On Sunday and it came back you know people that could have been that Google actually Corey on the note here. You know I think Korea Iraq but it but most nervous he's ever been like going in the collapsed in that game. But you know they took care that's a part check every game opposite don't count on an actual. James. And pay analogies Moran as Smart as Moran associate editor for tiger rag dot com cover Ellison baseball jays what did you. And I made were nitpicking here right but what will what are the things east did he saw a streak and he. Once you clean that up. Now I I think you'd wanna you wanna see more from. Put some outfielders I think the at one diplomats at a rock we get the ball art. You know the only regular start without it but I I think you expect to come out of it though. Think given a second thought it's just finished last year and been swamped so you once you get pretty quickly I think reimport each mean. It's it's kind of treatment with the crash it. If he doesn't it that your apps but something else in the two hole. You know that kind of reduces the idea but it sort you know what I have an easy match. You certainly know Japanese via out that second so. I think they want to get in dialing on idol thing. And I don't know that criticism as much as it is today. You know it's it's a pat on racking my brain it's a hard are they announced it all on him early yet. I'm watching more guys would vote Jordan and like yours you are absolutely. How to do you know which again you know you're get some. Relatively consistent production they're not they're probably not going to be great stretch in match in the barbecues yacht. By at large. So. I think he made it a little bit more of the gap honesty I think they are in especially in healed in New York. Chris read beyond that I think you ought to develop another guy in the air market in a place a second base for replacement shortstop or to discus. I know at Robertson premiered in the everyday lineup bureau award given some rest and each. Nonprofit gains were a year you know your heart out crops and people about you know nothing not nothing in the later innings settled. You know but again. Big picture that you're talking about about that and guilders lose one of the weaknesses after opening weekend you know you are pretty low key it that your biggest concerns. Hey you've seen no and brag men hold down that shortstop position for LSU. Now for what 78 years and in Kramer Roberts in the last couple of seasons ago last year thing going in three games this year. Teammates now standing places he get enough credit as his defensive ability. You know that same that all ordinary match that the Gainey played on our current. You know you remember poaching at four strikeouts and two innings in the industry got rushed away so. Every out he got the collapsed by it is that no hitter was by the and it Robertson was clearly about the arch and in the place you're making what's. I think actually got each week we realize that he was solid shortstop could make. Some pretty good plays he made some obsolete Chia early this year at. I'm not say it is too good I don't know he's as smooth as Nolan I'm not sure eking out what it much range brick and turned out those or it would start out those are. I think it has an overall body of work is different shortstop he's right there are now of she she doesn't make many mistakes. He did he did it's it's an air on an arts attacked by a slaughter are based but. You know average shortstop makes her pregnant there's been no notes it's it's kind of the way you come back now that I think really matters that session and what he showed that anybody makes a mistake or two really rattled but that was the initial. Hesitation on Paul owner's point park on putting at shortstop that. It is really early on just hurt again and sell products and Judy it so. You can't really out shortstop because that's the nature of the position he's gonna make some state and makes an error so. The fact that he now kind of got rid of that it has gained. Relational that you know athletically in terms of his marine unit arm he he's every bit as it is such. You know there's not a lot of ball but he gets to the economic plan. How many Jane's last all for coming home budgeting indictment it's this year. You know I'd. I haven't thought billion the other sixteen would be a good number I now think he's gonna want what are which are out here pretty incredible. It just looks pretty locked in at the mean. These is the first one incredible it's coming all the broken face at all. But the second lefty unless you wish just in saying I mean not all. Was never higher than when it went into the stance that needed it in the church grow. There was a 114 off the it's a moment ago that ended sheets that they it was a two more you know the top of the page yet now I don't know. People in one opera this week but. Perhaps it is opposite healed and it's mighty impressive but. You know that that guy's oh this year because when he when he now he's covering the plate and it currently has cleared problem. He was just trying to get inside pitches and pulled into the right field seats and now that I realize that he get to that outside pitch and he could be damaged that just as well. I mean it may turn middle hole number animal. He sells announcement he's funnel like this this this tiger team is and what would you agree with his team's -- to you about way. One more for James Moore so auto. Associate editor for tiger rag I just enjoy the conversation so of all the teams that Paul and Mary's feel that it sent to wall right in the last couple trips have been. Uneventful so to speak the 2009 when we know historians in the winner's. Do you feel like this is the best suited that they that he's had since then a nineteen to go home on makes noise. Our home I can't give you full answer and I'm not sure that the couple things have to happen in order that it changed. They the two freshmen corners have to keep up. Especially defensively I think if they are back good defensively that's expensive and out. Or shortstop part surround and the other to pick in Utah arrange. Other knot of people that are and in regard and you go out to around there. The other thing to me one city is ready to Sears opened the and I think what we're remember about 2009. You know it wasn't just starting rotation I'll do those aren't good Lewis Coleman and and not once but. If they also patty on as a closer I think election has the answer honored at big east you know right there on that level. They develop that for it to mean just think about how the Chad Jones lets them in the 2009 world cheers guys that could get them from the step into the ninth and and they have guys step whether it's you know what Doug Norman or college drawl or Turkey it was a hard throwing you come down to regain. You know if that happens then yeah maybe turning the way this team pitches and play defense could be on that level. What they're walker and when I checked the first of all three of them got app to be you know pretty do it there if they're going to be accurate team. You know I think you have pretty much guarantee production from your top three players that you're at your top starters and when you go someplace where you know that's solid foundation your team there what you use advantage. James Doran at swarthmore and onto an associate editor for tiger rag that come covering LSU baseball are one of our. Personal faith my personal favorite guessing you know all around talking. A little LSU baseball and we'll catch up against soon to mid week contest for the LSU tigers again you know tomorrow here in New Orleans and of course on the Hofstra midweek in Baton Rouge and any sort of three game series. With Maryland Friday Saturday and Sunday at the box change thanks meant. Upon Christian delegates are up against in the. Nice sounds good. Take about their tiger rag dot com that he great work Jane's were my favorites again and knows his stuff he's ping needed on hellish baseball and has been around while news knows he's looking that usually on the money usually on the money double coverage rolls on here on W. I welcome back double coverage. All right so a seventeen year old Trinity High schools transgender wrestler. Transitioning from a female to male wanna girls regional championship. One of the girls regional championship. And Allan over the weekend. After a female opponent forfeited the match so. Mac Britain knack exit junior who's undefeated this season. Basically hugged his opponent. Who forfeited in the 110 pound class six a regional championship and never took place. Planned Matalin Rocca. Denied declined to wrestle bile add an of those few guys. And they haven't nearly yeah. So the top four finishers in their region. Qualify for the state tournament. And so they so that the one that she was gonna play she's going to what you gonna wrestle Matalin a rock. And it touched off a bit of firestorm bit of that as a criticism because. To make this transition is this conversion from female to males she's taken some testosterone. It helped you know that transgender. And audio felt like you know they bowed out of the beaches. She had an unfair advantage as people point out. She wants compete against boys but wolf follow. Scott if all you he nearly governing body rules. And it's it's fast and here this. Because there has three sons and a place here this is why I think people get a little unnerved district isn't a situation like this where they're competing as sports. Had a had a pretty government honey make sure they're a competing in this. In class they should be it should she be competing in a male class not yet because she's not technically a male but she's taken out. Testosterone that's gonna help her give her bit of advantage I don't know I mean. You see this stuff thing is that going to be the first of its kind hasn't been already the first of its kind come. This medication and that she's under. It's proven its pointed out that they get. The great benefit in terms of strength and power and performance from. Some of these testosterone boost that she's under and touched off a bit of a bit of a conversation in infamy. Alec Canada I feel like OK so why they forfeit some Google's some of those competitors forfeit because in that they agree. It felt like he had an unfair advantage and agree with what she's Dylan. Which I think is is legitimate gripe in terms of a if you feel like she's got unfair avenged his the female other female wrestlers in that. An age group and classification they could take testosterone boosters but it is. He's gonna make transition from female a male at that secure that she you do it. Sigh it's time it's one of those things that perhaps you use at some point. At the regularly. All right Poland's open final four twos so white sending text 87870. By and large though she's got a lot of support from classmates. Obviously hear her grandmother and legal guardian. Points out arrest was a wrestler all the way to the heart they don't care who the other players they don't care about skin color preference that is one Russell when the kids can't wrestle. That's what they don't like it's typical way and there is outside interference. Well. Mean there might be outside of parents. But at the same time it's. Pretty. He its merit in its worth pointing out in bear some merit the point out that she was on a testosterone booster. It's. The other athletes that are privy to couldn't take. Recap of the W cousins trade. Voices Sacramento Kings and host of the grant makers show on sports though I'm 48 KH TK out there in Sacramento and look. The big narrative was that Dell Demps fleeced McCain's and great Napier will argue that it was time to move on because of the off the field off the court baggage if you will that came with police dozens. And just kind of a sense of entitlement and he went on up pretty good tirade last night after the news team down a migrant maker were on Twitter. Trading DNC DeMarcus Cousins was an absolute no brainer there's been a dark cloud over the franchise for years. That cloud is now gone goes on takings were never going to win with cousins never. In all caps this was a no brainer I was Jamal all the best I really do. I do but it was time. And but you know you re do street from a guy. Who's a play by play voice of the a vikings and ego boy was the pelicans get themselves into while he also concedes that. A change of scenery might be refreshing toward DeMarcus Cousins. And his. His attitude he leads the league of plea or fouls technical now as its arguments with the officials lie. Other players he and audiences about gray sneaker. Another tweet recently a asked his teammates as his former teammates and pull up here yeah ma am. Most important thing most of cousins teammates in the past seven years heated playing with a that's a fact. While maybe they'll likely be an annuity. I felt like eighty should've been doing it a week ago. Which is active now for not surround me with enough to Al Amin pickings have been a train wreck. And he wins and coming Wednesday posted which would would vote because 242228. When he. 293324. But in the up there with a AD in terms of wind share what he's responsible for is in the top five he's never been to the playoffs. Yeah maybe that the kings were gonna that went out with him. The price not gonna win anything without a meter so yet and if you look at that approach Dave H at a train them and an appellate is that right thing here they got a great deal. For bleak dozens. Of five players to draft picks a second round pick a first round pick that first round picks a fourteen overall. That's well worth it second round pick that's like an undrafted as a human threat like there's not to be sick optics that are sticking around at a major impacts on NBA teams. Yamana Juno was. But they're not major impacts on teams. He had a year you get rid of body heal and Tyreke Evans I'm okay. But he got a player that he teeming with anti Davis yet to all star big man. That what's the way to beat to get through the Western Conference who's the team to beat western out. It's Golden State although he beat him is his plea big. He saw an eyelash and a finals the Cleveland with a different line of a bigger lineup. The word struggle. And be able to Boortz. Don't do well down there. So this is this is now all of a sudden just absolutely rewriting. A failed it in doom season. Re energize the fan base in also changes how you go look at the the Western Conference in the eight C. The delegates are in the thick of things to asking is back and you'd like to believe that this is if the if they don't it's a win win for development because they and that top that the top three protected. Dell Demps saved his career. This is this is one that. You know it could end up going the way of Ricky Williams trade war. The way of the Dallas Cowboys when he traded Herschel Walker to Minnesota Vikings and has that kind of ramifications. Rail lake he was money you're on W two well. Cargo movement that extra that the Michael on. That is so like I'm just so excited about this story that the like two and immortalized by Tex in my body. About this alum I'm so happy here that are really wanted to talk about armed the guy like the voice of the king that came on. On talking about this like dark cloud Roberson Sacramento. Because there bogeys that he could get it done here well and Anthony in the country get it done here by himself. And knowing. No and I like it needed. Brought out the about here's the thing like. He would. And saves to lead the inflate route thousand didn't get frequent arguments with the media and frequent arguments with the coaches and players in Denton dead give in to. On the shenanigans thinking global because I think that was just frustration. What are with the is with his situation. Yeah I definitely agree with I mean it's got to be frustrating you know a team that can't make it into the playoffs their own. Do that well bush Odyssey like feel kinks Randall line talking about how on backtrack insane world could go on or. They're buying into it in there to from the team because it's the same thing is you remember ray Wayne. When the saints traded Jimmy Graham are changing ink ink Kenny stills. And what do we hear Athens oh they were locked room over here Lobo of those rumbles and analysis. I was the spin now just a way to justify the trade and sell it to the fan base same thing for the keys to trying to sell this because if you look at the area and you get a trade details. The really plugged in king's physical what we just did what. Yes but this. I doubt that hotly robbery. The dial to ultimately then saw me in my abilities so that he couldn't get anything done. Complete 180 I mean this is a opulent as those queried it's you know it they make the playoffs and that he'd seen maybe one gamer to. Against Golden State are really sing along can be agreed destination her. Free agent role role guys to say today or looking pretty good they need a few guys and the technical and so I'm. I'm so glad the Republicans and now and has been much to root for Italy it good time looks like a good time and port. And a Olivia bogey times bogey. Bogey does the bogeys back in the visibility but ray ray here's a deal meant. I mean from the east selling previously bode Ayman. I was always tell like yeah. A patent the delegates if their relevant in a yeah. I hear they aren't February they're relevant they're gonna be relevant here until until until May. On Rezko on our India is celebrated on and that's known really. A potent than ever on and everything and did you pay attention Republicans here now on and not go to Eugene. To get torn you know very expensive. But it this whole thing it is coming up on first of march and my mom like. You know when you don't like to be you know I mean Moscow. Yeah I've never been more excited like I've been maybe 5 teams rate am I'm ashamed to admit that 85 games. But with a bogey endowment. I know we got to work but on weekends like off I guess that means I'll find time now my schedule ago all right hey I'm carbon the south of glee. For the pelicans and that's what that's been their big issue is to get phased do that this move does that makes them go all right. Now I want to make it a point to get over there to the arena and their phones have been blowing up today and it ticket office with this news thanks to the phone call re. Welcome your phone calls well it is so 18 semi tech's 878 semi double coverage on WW well. I Safir ranking trades in New Orleans sports history. Where was this where does this one rank means Tim he's bringing up the pat swilling trade when he gets shipped to. The Detroit Lions what for the eighth overall selection and ended up being willing growth. Think it kind of worked out for right. But trading Willie Roaf later. For a third round pick in London. Work out so much for you for the no on six for meant I think to this one. This one. Is up there it's up there with the pat swilling. Willy will rove trade. Joe Horn I think they may trade for him or they sign a free agency Karen. He has a son as a freeagent from the cheese sudden count bonehead trades of a lot of those. In a jungle will be up there's a as a Goodwin. With the Euro from a third round pick W. Jeremy Shockey the idea of a second round pick for him now on those high. The it's farce trades in potential in what it could mean. In changing the entire face and tie and tired direction. Of a franchise. This one yesterday made by Dell Demps. Deal and Dell. For bode cousins. This could could potentially do that now. A gradual what what if they don't make the playoffs what happens right well the whole lot. He still got DeMarcus Cousins here for another year if it potentially more. As. The way it is super Max deal potentially worksheet and had that ability anymore she's not gonna walk he is the besides another team after a year. In free agency he loses another fifty million dollars debt and told in total with the thirty million dollars he lost because not being able Cyrus super Max deal. With the kings. He lost thirty million dollars to amateur pelicans so he's not gonna walk away from eighty million dollars. He's already lost 36 not a walk away from another fifty million dollars. So you it really is a net positive. Total net positive is a total winter doldrums. They don't make the playoffs that that it's not a huge deal. Now expectations have changed a little bit because oblique cousins but he's still got a for next you get an opportunity to sign Jrue Holiday in the off season. Retool your roster a little bit yeah now I know. He given away more you mortgaging your future he's given away draft picks but really how important those draft picks in the NBA last year top three and he's got that protected. So they do somehow. Missed the post season. Com. And they will lottery I think their chances right now like 6% but if they. What do taken not play well they would get up to a 33% chance to win it'll get lottery pick but it's protected. Lorenzo Neal was in the groove deal that's true fullback Lorenzo Neal. Fourth round pagan rites and yet he was. And I think Pat's really that was a year after he was the pits a player of the year yes it was in ninety three's at the uses the defensive player of the year. It was a shocker. I guess it before the break. For the pelicans this could be like Hugh Dallas Cowboys Jimmie Johnson moment where it changes how your team is is constructed in built. For good for for the better or can be like Ricky Williams and you know me you know all of that. For one player. Steve lost the of the first round draft pick for Steve moss that was what that was by one of the bad one bad traits honestly thought I mean Steve Walsh and. Guy. Put the first topic just the thing. It states that this ain't gonna had Troy Aikman is the cowboys actually considered. Troy Aikman that deal. It's either going to be Steve Walsh of Troy Aikman and as I amnesty and like him members have wrecked. It was Jimmie Johnson. Going back to. A connection Oklahoma kind of just let him. To the the Troy Aikman deal like it keep Troy Aikman and actually considering it. Well what's what's at him. Bob when the job next season embodies guys' job back the next year I was well he's holed out that was that was a knee jerk reaction in from. From the saints not having it and agreed defense to Steve Walsh in the native golden playoffs a year yet with the Chicago lost. On the over the fumbled spike a huge and stop the clock and you might be teal Vista. In the playoffs. It is snowy London. Soldier Field he goes try to stop the clock and is actually ruled a fumble as the ball came embassy in. I think in the blues in the position that's bizarre just typical saints look at the time I suddenly kill back all wrapping up next here undergo. Yet closing time. Closing time for all of you basketball to kids Alba. On the after that game's over with now see that's the problem. They. Ellison basketball's now butt of the jokes.
