And some of the advanced statistics to figure those things out by. I asked the question earlier. About this heat team. It if the heat win. Tomorrow but still missed some of the pre season how would you view of the season as a whole because again. You know I think it worst mentioning where is mentioning excuse me that you have the perspective of you're eleven and thirty. People were talking about where you gonna trade at the trade deadline. Playing for lottery selection we've seen a lot of the lowly franchise is due data detailing of the season in order to up. The possibility in the odds that they have with the ping pong balls in terms of getting a top five top three pick whatever might beat. Refused to do that and went on this amazing Ron and if they win tomorrow night they will go from 113 eleven and 30 January 17. To finishing the second half the season at thirty and left. Absolutely remarkable possibilities so we S open question you wanna join in the conversation. You can do so via text 679746797. For a can also call the show at 7863600797863600790. Or tweet at me. Greg likens on Twitter Melvin has been standing by very patient in homestead Melvin appreciate you doing so thanks for joining the program are you go on this Tuesday evening. Build. Organization end and the cloture. And I would say that it probably age yeah I'm just my opinion but I think people I think they're gonna hug sit there and think consider. What won't carnival culture and organization Pat Riley and I'm not making all of them and Erica have built here through the years and especially. I bet band since the beginning of the announcement Monday easy and it should have been a great ride and I think. Retired there and white side and all these young guys. It is it's going to be fun for the next few years it's got go dark dark which also. Well there's three more people on additional that they play every day are on the locations starting lineup and rotation. And our less than 27 years old so. The other thing I wanted to mention to who is one of white I would. Well NBA awards and then in of the bulldogs and post them won the regular season and about our. Taught only MBA and you know. Yeah that the seven double doubles I think that's the number come on to the next period he's not a star I think there's a problem in the NBA. Yeah Melvin you know I did you make some good points there because it I'd do take the heat of turn a lot of heads with what they've done. What would you be disappointed if they don't make the playoffs after all this. I mean I don't man who could beat you at 8880 I I want them to win every year and I put on the age can go blow but the tipping point was 90000. Then what Milan goal with Hardaway and everybody wants to always talk about the mid 2000. But got the tipping point getting by Lee. And then riding ring in hell I'm going to me and then you know we won twelve. Can be division titles. And only historical one more. You know and that time trying to drive he'd been here so I'm looking at the overall picture and I am happy. Of course I want them to make a layoff but it. Culture we just won't not go away and what I like about it. Is that it doesn't matter who the players are they also want to mislead a lot. Are you know what we keep. Winning and becoming doing and you're likely to every week on the ground in the NBA and what a lot of organization. We won't go away. All right Mel appreciate the phone call. I'm denying ergo won't go away. Real put out that slogan up there were all let go of the law rope. It was also a few years back for our entire heat fans. It's it's a Melvin brought up on some white side of the desert. Guest a main borrow from last hour actually wrote an article but as soon with the last couple days about. The possibility of him being named to an all NBA team he is on the verge of becoming the first key player to win an NB rebounding title. He did lead the league in blocks last season not to read this season but still. Pile up analyst there and here's Melvin mentioned franchise record for double doubles 57 after last night tests junior 58. Tomorrow night. It's gimme dipped local mean look at the other senators in the mix for the all NBA team. You've got the Rudy go bear crime that he towns. My concern with Whiteside is it. You know decisions justice. Exclusive to the NBA you find in the NFL as well oftentimes. Would there be a major war where there PCA. In all star appearance or operable peiris depending on what sport we're talking about. It's usually you get into that. Game if it's an all star game or you get into the all NBA selection Norris is to pro bull. The season after you really deserve to write this season you deserted few if you're in up and coming guy users hitting the scene. And opening our eyes oftentimes you get overlooked that season but it's the next season where. Eight you make up for in everybody's radar today and we we know he's put in the time because like. Karl at the town has put a monster numbers in Minnesota wasn't on the all star team. And I think he has a chance to be one of the all NBA players but regardless of the key and white senators similar category where. On on going non Whiteside is much older. Then Carlin he's towns but. The poisonous I think Whiteside next season probably has a much better chance this season. And if they seated been contending all year long for post season spot and didn't have that rough for staff that I speak to probably would have gone. A more in his favor in terms of resides but that's got a way things work right most of the victors go the spoils most of the time if you're on a contending team and you're gonna get recognized and Whiteside has been on a contending team for the latter Puerto portion of the season but. Could be difficult for him to edge those guys out now don't doesn't mean he's less qualified by any means we all know his value but. Are certainly at the going to be. A difficult task for him to be on the all NBA team but if he does make it. I meant that B terrific love to see him get rewarded it but it's such. A big part of the charm of this heat team is that it's a relatively star lists group. Right immediately take a look rockets has been their best all around player for the entirety of the season. And most consistent player Whiteside has the most upside. And continues you'd better and better it's just a freak when it comes to what he can do in these you know last I receive him. Implementing a jump shot a little bit and hits in key free throws down the stretch and so he's improving and a lot of the elements of his game. And then you look at James Johnson Tyler Johnson to both. Would be in the running in in any other season for that six man of the year. Maybe even most improved player by no sixth man of the year because likely gonna go to landslide Eric Gordon because he's on a top three team in the west and averaged just seventeen points a game and shot 37%. And plays with James Harden and there's a beneficiary of that arm and it most improved player and he will be really Tuesday but again actually a lot of heat. Momentum. They become relate to the party because this surge is suddenly put them into the consciousness of so many that are. Voting for these awards so they're going to be difficult as far as Eric Spoelstra is concerned I think he is a legitimate. Coach of the year candidate. My concern news. If they don't make the playoffs mean I don't think I could give him the award. Interestingly enough. Vote last coach. Ought to win the week's top coaching honor with a record there was 500 or worse. Was Doc Rivers. With the magic back in 2000. May finish one game shy of the playoffs. Had a 41 and 41 wrecker. So. There are some similarities there wouldn't be unprecedented but I do they do will be difficult for him two win that award with outs. Going to the post season but does provide hope for Spoelstra did not only get strong consideration things into a lot of votes. But there are some other worthy candidates including Mike and Tony from the Houston Rockets are you can make the argument for Brad Stevens in Boston you can also make the argument. Four Scott Brooks in Washington. And you know Gregg Popovich is tunnel at the LeBron James of coaches where he's so good. There's teams performed so consistently well that he kind of eliminates himself from contention it's like we get tired. Of giving him the award to Michael Jordan had that LeBron James says that even though he's had a terrific season he's not gonna win MVP even know you asked any person to a man. Who's the best player in the NBA. So projects but no Russell Westbrook likely winner James Harden. So it's not a way things were appreciate phone call their Melvin if you wanna get the conversation no will be take more calls and text. As the night goes on the when we come back. Our very own Josh Freeman is at the Marlins game and we'll give us update on what's going on there in the marlins' home opener also talks and he with them that's coming up next here on seven night. I don't win. Every doctor Wayne. Eddie and 79 B at at and what else Ford three sixteenths to guns and kids. Yeah young pitchers. Who gets to grab at that to give Miami. Walker music from Trevor. Good evening everyone welcome back to seven minutes ago Greg likens here with you fill in for Josh Friedman that ticket invites you. To undertow 2070. Presented by our sister station one of four point three the shark. At the Pompano Beach at the theater Sunday may twenty featuring the hate gays unlikely candidates coin dreamers milky chance K play and grew to love. Tickets on sale now at 1043 the shark. Dot com. Over is doing well on this Tuesday evening and speaking of Josh Friedman. Seven and its its very own you can hear him here hosting this very show from seven to 10 PM week nights. Also surge is station's reporter you can bomb on Twitter at 790 Frito. Any choices right now deal Ryan fuel and downstairs convenience stores gas line near truly steps beyond convenient. Josh always good to talk to whether her older person does appeal big guests on your own show. I would consider myself into that intro but he did their job so heated. So here tomorrow in their pre helping Bartolo Colon had a bad yup that's the Braves Marleau scored three in the bottom of the first them. And lead three nothing. Yeah I agree I guess that's the way you were drawn up right if you're the Marlins in your opening up the season at home be viewed three runs the first offer Cologne minute perfect start. You know it's a bad crowd you know luckily she noted and subsequent date occurred at night. What could be here for Laura's glorious final. Home opener. Probably will meet it's a pretty good defense. That's good and so what has this the scene been like overall Josh are you got there this afternoon. And you seem to build up to actual game time of the game's start was delayed a little bit because the ceremonies in separate what's overall scene been like. I just don't excited crowd there are no moral or not start off the even. A 500 but you're coming home. There's an excitement I think the first first night everybody you're everybody's excited to be here with the kind of reality. Chechen bit. Book for the game nor David Samson. Talk to a certain. So number I think about the sale right now he said you know they're talking to multiple suitors and as David stance and putter right now. We're in the fourth inning and negotiation that is mind it never got past the second inning before. Yeah obviously when identify those who were you wouldn't you don't acknowledge your church here was part group. Doing that but dobbs you know he said. You wouldn't be shocked. This sale was completed by the by the end of deceit and the city would be shocked if anything the that's one of the things he would be shocked about I think I get this done I think that your reward is that a shot and kind of mood in there look there are only thirty of these clubs and they're very difficult to buy and Berry Q gulp sale and so. You can only talk about achieve that so sparsely attended like the Marlins won. We're still playing goes up they're getting a lot of phone calls out serious a lot of these groups are I guess we'll find out but. The negotiation Thursday that their loot they are aren't going and they know I would expect something sometime this year probably. And Josh I noted new reports about their sorority knows that the teams up for sales so in a way I credit him for speaking about a bowl oh were you surprised he was so candid. And what is a ST tell about what's going on behind the scenes there. Well we know they're eating it now here for sale he didn't say much more now on me because what stories are out there that you know and then he would give it would do no good. To say are you know I'm denied a work of art in any act beat them at that. When congress would want to restrict the leader right that you're now with her look at a lunch it would groups are involved because it's what's known group that finished runner up. You know try to buy a team that didn't happen and so we can keep it confidential art Deco is not showing it really is all cards. But acknowledging that negotiations are what would more than one party are going on right now and and what this you'd eaten pork today he reporters magazines and I would trust them to value in the cellular value French at all. Quad Core came out today and then they value the Marlins the 25 value most that club about 945. Million dollars so the other rumor we're there we're gonna sell a one point six million well we'll have to wait and see where that final tally comes. Yeah that I'm glad you brought that up is I was laughing. You know videophone you on Twitter and some of the reports from from down there that if sickness and does rip Forbes. We got the cowboy he got there at the station bleed you gotta they're there don't you can click upload you. Is not a airport dragging it comes to valuing printer. Josh Freeman seven added to its very own joining us say here on 790 covering. The home opener for the Miami Marlins and it. Josh ship before move on to the heat because it's certainly topic this evening. But what are what are the odds were used it to John Carlos stands gonna finally hit a home run it's been six games so far no bombs from the slugger. You weren't you know what he can hit a homer out of the Grand Canyon he just needed to connect I wanted to matter climactic with a guy like. Am yeah I got to the first game get out of that boat comment function when they elected Bachmann cool so homers. And I think that's how life you know why apple moral homer hitters like that they go loose drought there droughts. And then come abortions. All right deceit are the hot topic of course that tomorrow night's game matters the 82 game which is amazing considering how they start before get to that. The game last night there is a close compromise victory in overtime. Against the cavs what was that atmosphere like an American Airlines Arena especially in the fourth quarter when they're making the comeback. Those that think that what they entered the game they they mean it during the game or fifteen point trying to eleven point behind in the fourth quarter and almost no Kyra re you know. No crime but you know even the most ardent heat gently bit hopeful but the eleven point how to make this up one quarter. And they did it make sure over time those raucous crowd and you're seeing Erik Spoelstra livid I seemingly. But every possession usually wearing his emotions are this week as well and you don't it was back. Much excitement lap Michael Rey actually match what tomorrow is another cool thing is tomorrow. He's the pacers and hawks which are one game the bulls and the next by the way I think are signing guys talk street. Correcting everybody that you might get a call start of that while I'm like it was well. The bulls met scheme and talked teachers eve and the the heat and Washington game they all start at same time that I designed by the NBA most of the game tomorrow night. Our 8 PM eastern target chip chip off send out so you're gonna be Milwaukee Portland we want to reel type goals scored the other school. You write it's gonna be. Fascinating to see how everything plays out and really fun and you know what Josh Tuesday signed neither of us about one game contract but I think we'd be set for the rest of the year. Cook but it yeah erupting like every now and you know it did not you know big bold I would have had a good chance anyway that that that the nets to be sure but the net are just they're not going anybody who are. No it's stands disappoint a Lopez Lynn the two headliners who will be out of me there only 220 games you're right it's a solid we're talking about. Some terrific players would certainly hurts the heat when it comes to getting help but Josh Freeman seven attitude its very own joining his own show Peter Greg has filled in for Frito. Are all right so you spoke to some of the players locker room last night as you mentioned tracking scorers run the MB it's easy for us to do that what's it like from their perspective. When they're focused on the game in hand but then these other games are going on simultaneously. Didn't they had they look up the scoreboard they didn't know all warm and Greg claimed that they you know the scores up hawks syllables and even the box game. In ought not go preaching to the did you eat any paper they all want. But did the players that and I believe government they were like it was that to a man that you didn't know. We scored those on the regain killer app back in the locker room and a want of a lot of it was Howard Johnson's had to be. You know we got our own game to play but I just figured during a timeout when you're on the bench. So we'll just gonna glanced up at the scoreboard and I just check out of those scores were maybe somewhat misty and yell and scores say that. You know the bulls are crushing crude oil aspect. The magic the magic crushed a for the teachers just one and then you don't nobody may yell that to understand but the players are treated on their own game and and Spoelstra said he didn't know until after the game. You had acted to those funny when he said that I got enough stress as it is perfect it's business pollster who's who's very candid about that. Now on Josh you're one of the questions that have been asking tonight and now wanna get your opinion on this you know there's there's a distinct possibilities you just detailed. That the heat could win tomorrow night and beat the wizards but they don't get help outside and they can finish 500 make this big comeback from the 1130 start. But then not make the playoffs when you look back at the season as a whole of that would be the case. How would you characterize the 201617. Season for the. A remarkable comeback not expel and there's deep abyss to start 1130 but there were injuries. Guys are getting to know each other terms of how to play together and no team. Added that the biggest comeback from our troops finish ipodder is so I'd like him what you want came back and Burke games under 500. And finished and and finished C a 500. He can be nineteen in under an if he didn't make the playoffs yet you're gonna look back at certain losses Orlando Billy when the next awesome Friday night. A couple of weeks they'll summit will be long remembered. But I stored. Read it a remarkable comebacks Eaton and want to be proud I would say so from a player standpoint. I would they told her coaching standpoint whatever sport earnest that. Even if they don't get the necessary help tomorrow night and they do beat the winter but that's the bulls and pacers win and it or what we'll score by the country you have. In order for the heat get in the playoffs they must win and that's a definite and Iger the polls or the pacers must loose it oh lose. You'll be the 71. Wounded UB EAC but that happens to call by. The policy but even at even want and the other teams did as well I would clerk or you know all by this is a remarkable comeback. Yeah a good way to describe it and certainly would be that but if you're one big. The typical right I mean for them in his group ran the the joy that they brought so many people in the heat fans down here and Ed they've really you know captured the imaginations of everyone if they got all the way back to 500 they set the NBA record for doing so which you just described. And didn't extend the season for another couple weeks of playoffs and be really disappointed. The award and edit but I'll I'll I'll I'll look at this eight and I agree with it would be to watch people request to tap that when you look at it from that side of the prism. Let's look at it from the Alaska or outside the present. If I sit you on January 17 that the when it will Lebanon birdied eight just walked one and six road trip. You know Greg nearly three bullets from now. We're gonna be really disappointed because she missed the playoffs we'll look at you like I was out of my mind if I made a statement like that look how are they call. I think I see your point of view and I don't want them to be disappointed but the fact. That they are discipline they might be disappointed shows just how are the that com. Very very true and I'm just happy that being get eliminated by AA LeBron listen Kyra US captain Wright every that would have been her real insult me and I could. Last night I could justify the loss if LeBron was playing but to listen that team in the Darrent Williams turning back the clock in the allude out of a tough to smoke. Our special event you have all the data yet out of New York subway I put a beautiful lastly you said. The cavs had to four point three pointers. Could protect equipment but the stuff it's only including a little bit yeah hunter mistake like that they articulate and you know fractured manageable losing that game yet that would have been. Disappoint like the knicks you know they arrest Mel all of Iraq rose we later find out was without for the year. And they could still be here and and wanted to more than they eat and eat the other captain one minus Mel White asserting that would have been just a body blow. Today would have been on just wanna get your opinion yeah I've been making the argument that. I think Erik Spoelstra belongs to coach your conversation but I think it'll be difficult to justify him winning the award. If they don't make the playoffs that's something that could be on the line tomorrow night as well what do you think. I think it ought to be in the discussion don't get post but I think I'd like Mike in Tony. I think branch even gonna get go I think maybe Scott looks in Washington in the with the way they've turned out I think those guys probably yet yeah I would be in Tony might win this thing by. If it if I debenture desperate those four guys that they might engineer the most votes what you. Yeah I agree with you and I think I think it's bolster the ER I would make a really really legitimate. Strong. Stand up on the table argument if they make the playoffs because I do think what's what's happened is remarkably you described it coming back from the nineteenth. Games under 500 but if they don't make the playoffs I just have a difficult time. Justifying saying you know what he deserves coach of the year Newt it's happened before but I just think those other guys be more deserving if he's not in the policies. Yeah I I'm not saying he won't win it that they make OC but I think those guys you can get a lot of boats and then maybe. You don't know people all the sort of voters are lighter so they're gonna know everything's going on the NBA but I'm not sure he gets that much attention maybe as those other guys you know we probably deserved. Josh Freeman joining his own show here on seven and ticket Joshua I also think dues to that point did whether it's this poll or U Hasan Whiteside James Johnson. You know points as going to be all NBA team member or if Johnson's gonna win it. We might six man of the year or you know most improved player. Like I did until they all our victim of their lack of success the first after the season ended. They're all kind of know the surge the end of the season has been terrific for almost a follow but. I take. Lot of people have dismissed the heat early on and it did get hurt their chances are some of these awards as well. Probably have been look at all donate beyond and they want only eleven approach 41 of the people they see him as a whole they might have a chance of BP could take it. But they'll be focused on that first half probably not so much. All right finally. Any predictions were put up there about what actually happens tomorrow. What are capital H in the boulder when their. But the hawks. They there's he can change. I believe so they you know they're gonna maybe try to win that game how I'll also keep getting and by the fact that they'll win in the features and news. I liked it a look at the optimism Josh I hope your right to that in just a very unjustly and oh by the way to Washington boy are we don't know. Yeah it's a great question because I know they'd. Conventional wisdom would say they have nothing to play for blood you know I heard some reports stated they wanna get their fiftieth victory. And I would be you know milestone for the franchise but. Yes so it's not a given he will win but I think rock and I'm assuming they'll take your business the question will be whether pacers are bulls. Help them on a little bit but you know you don't want affected it's gotten to this point I think is remarkable in its own right. This could be it Corey playoff atmosphere tomorrow night it took well. It actually went out. It certainly is and Josh. Appreciate you taking the time and you're covering the Marlins game and let's get back to that I had been there may be some fireworks it just occurred solitude. Keep track very minute that goes on there and look for LC on Friday night. Aren't periods Josh Freeman cemented his very own. As as we were talking I'm sure he's scurrying back to the the spot speakers don't baseball it's one of those things were. There's so much downtime. De L Justin do an interview with me and he probably would miss anything in most games. It are solos and it is an opposite. Field three run homer so the Marlins now lead six nothing. On Atlanta and that they may have just knocked portola Cologne out of the game completely. As it's still early on and Alan pixel was the second inning. As meant. Would not news to me that the Braves are very good it's a bottom of the third season is now it's six nothing. Marlins as Ozuna. Is off to a hot start himself for this team so Marlins look like they're well on their way to their fourth victory of the season. Thanks Josh Freeman for joining the program course he's covering nineteen tonight's special. What they're you can hear him here 790 the ticket 7 attend every weekday evening when we come back.

Of course we've been discussing the big heats and the 82 and final game of the regular season for 20162017. Matters a tonne it's a must win scenario for Miami. After B. Earned a tough fought victory over the cavs in overtime 1404121. Last night. In case Yemen pay attention or need a refresher it's as simple as this. From Miami to make the playoffs they must win tomorrow night against the wizards. And any of the bulls or the pacers must lose. The heat also wizards team that is locked to a four seats so seemingly don't have much incentive to win that game while Chicago those Brooklyn tomorrow night the nets. Though they beat the bulls on Saturday. They're playing without Brook Lopez Jeremy when Trevor Booker quit CAC Joseph Harris and Sean Kilpatrick they tweeted that out. Today's part of their injury report Lopez Lynn in Booker all. Going to be missing due to rest. So they're already the worst in the league record wise not gonna have a terrible lineup out there is that doesn't look burger Indiana on the other hand hosts Atlanta Atlanta. News in the fifth spot India Eastern Conference playoff race and is currently playing. Our 1098. And right now they're in nineteen points at the half against the hornets and what I was gonna say is we need Charlotte to win because of the hawks win tonight which looks like there on the way to doing so. Knocking every incentive to be India tomorrow night because they on the tiebreaker over the box the only team to potentially Qassam for the proceed. Meaning there will clinch that with a win tonight so well barring a big comeback by the hornets against stills as halftime. It could be typical of four. Us to assume that Atlanta's gonna play really hard and play at all its key players against Indiana tomorrow night so he need to win first things first but they also need help. And with that in mind I do think the perspective is warranted at 1130. This team was down and out mid January. They are now on the cusp of potentially. May in the second half of the season be thirty and 112. Half of the year and could potentially make the playoffs tomorrow night if everything goes wait. We hope it does. But even if the heat win tomorrow night and don't get help in the cases of the bulls. My question tonight is and how we view this sees how he characterized 201617. Version of the Miami Heat. And we re getting some phone calls and can text misses about that somebody here on the night five for Tex lines says. From starting the season 1130 going 3011 after the break I'll consider that a successful season. No other coaching staff could have done what he did. Would those players. Got some real says amazing season no matter what happens dots oh well deserved credibility. Somebody else calling me out for what I have to sit in tonight. Says let me make sure I have this right if Erik Spoelstra beats Washington tomorrow he can be coach of the year if he loses to Washington and he should be. Shouldn't be considered for coach the year. Curious is that pretty much what you're saying to me. Not exactly that my point is Venus I think there's a symbolic. Portion to winning. And going to the post season rights of these say that you made the playoffs for girls with the seed is acting that holds a lot of weight. So if your reporting for coach of the year. I think deck to be a potential tiebreaker it goes against Erik Spoelstra so you're one of the bull riders who as a coach your vote. You take a look at. The credentials of a Mike did Tony Scott Brooks a Bret Stephens and Erik Spoelstra. If all the other three. Guys are those the ones were in contention in Gregg Popovich to so before other candidates include Spoelstra in a group of five. Are all in the post season Spoelstra isn't just think that that takes him out of contention gets an easy way to say that Spoelstra doesn't belong. Copies in the post season and he can't hold that against so that's my. And I think logically speaking. If they're going to be looking at that. Taking a gander at the rose amazing each of those candidates. Acting pack to be a huge deal so yes. It doesn't SO mean they'd lose to Washington. They could beat Washington. And then they don't get help from Indiana or Chicago and so it on the playoffs in the Mecca herder exports so yes that's what I'm sent. I'm not backing down from. Is go to the ball lines were Anthony's been standing by Anthony in Miami thanks for joining us showing up and I don't. Are you okay come primarily decree I don't get excited by the Marlins two of them because you're meanwhile is because. In the beginning this season adding get excited about them the heat. And big big big lead and each article made number try to battle now when I'm playing in the U. Would come in tomorrow I'm I'm all right what PPP kua. Well they're getting started at duke Marlins because RKR a big got them that you know they keep a good gap reported foreseeable pitchers. That's what we regular winner where women may right. Bartolo Cologne. Somehow somebody is still in the game give them the brazen gun and gotten a run but it's 61 they still haven't in the game. We agree is an interest in seeing -- great I don't cheat you'll do when you're the guy who woke. Paper reported three if you order a political play good baseball. Uncle. I mean outlook how couldn deadly. Flood before you go. I use 43 yes. It would get out it's an important report hope UB40 four inmate. All here. He was sick it's important for men now from the state may be kept that close when it only because I mean. Gary is gal could you these dead old Eddie auditory you know they need to recruit. Agree I don't want to eat. Of debris nobody could undo our policy speak out openly taught the nearly crippled the god -- I want to show how well below the import like did you elect may be together. One goal Ottawa he'd been done a jump albeit Graham Quebec are. I guarantee or should the phone call. What preferably sooner for two workers ball but yeah I did it they're going to bring in. A big name free agent they do need to be selected to a certain degree that we need to towel and I do think there superstar two way from being. A title contender and some may be like Kate what he talked Monday. Apparently making the Playhouse potentially this year nauert among titles well that's the way pat right politics right they're not entering every season. Hoping to be a fringe playoff team. He's always looking to retrieve moves ahead to determine how they can continue. To apply for the title and with Chris Bosh is salary presumably coming off. The the salary cap situation there they're gonna have a lot of money. To spend on free agents the question will be the key James Johnson around ninety Dion Waiters ramble those guys become free agents after breakout seasons. And then do they go after replete grip and Norah Gordon Hayward or some of the other. Big name free agents who will become available I think those are all ballot questions about it he's won about Bartolo Cologne last year with the Mets he posted. A 3.4 three ER race for the season so he had a very good campaign last year he is going to be forty foreign made. And Don Casey Anthony was curious series last Amos Cologne non not coal. So. That's what he said the 44 year old Colin is on the mound. Put the brakes well. Bartolo Cologne who. By away like he pitched against the Mets in New York the other night and received a rousing ovation because he became a fan favorite there. There are few things better current day in baseball been seeing him get on base and try to run the bases disease extremely out of shape. Like I dip affect these almost 44 he's pitching and he obviously news. On wealth from self in terms of his craft would win when it comes to being an athlete otherwise. Yeah I don't think it's a part of the game. As seriously. Anyway when we come back we will have an update for you on what's going on a Marlins are co plus will reset the heat. Situation and a little bit later on we will hear from David Sampson if you missed what he had to say about the pending sale of the Miami Marlins club that'll coming up. Peter Gregg likens filling in for Josh Freeman would back an activist. Finally winning on the regular season Wednesday to eat and wizards that's low and Tommy started off at seven with a pregame show my kept up play by play. Today's season. And I am she's AM 79 DN SM what else Ford three HDC. Ticket.
