Is rob and ire of fox sports' rob we appreciate the time. In terms of Billy dean and what you did today it is a seventy their reeks of desperation -- -- you think is a calculated move this gonna pay out for them. Well I certainly could calculated. That doesn't mean it definitely pay off. I think they're they're one -- comparative -- people talked about quite dated. You know -- that never won. The World Series. In Billy -- -- -- Him going back the money -- years. And then there going for well yeah I mean baseball which are gone for it I think it. What a lot of people have been missing is that. These are -- short of winning their division they've got a two and a half game lead I believe over the angels. Which is not our beat. You know huge. It -- -- record club a -- and I. Happen in the next two months the first priority -- Yates has to -- not winning the World Series which is preposterous who knows -- -- But it it -- division. Can avoid that one game playoff. Getting you know. Very easily getting knocked out one game into the post season so for comedic about getting better not October but for August and September. Rob when you look at the deal obviously the -- are kind of connected with Detroit because of what's happened in the playoffs last two years the tigers go out. And they get David Price first thought is that gonna be enough to put them overall but maybe get that groceries title game were you surprised that may be -- lack of hall and return to the rays got foray David Price. No I'm not surprised that they got quite a bit. You're smiley is not a great pitchers yet. But he might become one he certainly very solid. Strategy need. Any statements to record with 95 games. Right now the rate don't have one of those and don't project they have -- although they have enough good pitchers that one over one or more that might well step forward next season. Could become a great pitcher. What I think that obviously going to be around for awhile and he still cheap. They also picked up. Nick Franklin. Who has struggled. With a merit this he's been limited opportunity with its tightening in the minors and had can't -- sort -- been corporate players you know. Play three or four by traditions -- to -- a -- with a bad he's still only 23 and can't be very good -- -- Miley the next -- potentially. An IT. -- Oprah won't last forever like instantly see Franklin at the next bend over the rays have a models were pretty well for five accused now I think they're just trying to keep that going. It was obviously a big day for Oakland in Detroit rob which team which staff do you like the most right now based on the -- or dismayed. But I like Detroit I mean. The education has been fantastic but. Actually hadn't been back greatly but lately is that they're really good. Especially with the margin adding margins and in depth. -- Lester no question but. The tigers. Are incredible I mean they have five guys to pitch for anybody -- -- each other but nobody ever heard up until about two months ago particularly well look. -- at some point you have to fall back on the track record. At least a little bit. And I'd and I think that's why he went out got. Guys they've got. Because the litigious debate had don't have that -- there is some of the guys don't vote in the rotation that it's good that gave the band. Which really been key for them at the top thirty pitching at the beginning. Rob and I our guest of fox sports he's on Twitter at Rob -- in EYER. We talk a lot about winners today we have always been a lot of times about -- and may have missed. Or didn't do a good job of the trade deadline what are a couple of teams that you think. Missed out today and did not do the job. Well you know I'd never have never talked about it because there are only so we'd be cremated. And you certainly don't. You know that sort of mortgage future. To pick up a rip a player he's the committee were to have for two months plus. Lot of significant players get added an. After the so called deadline. Last year I remember that the pirates picked up two really good player Marlon Byrd and number we don't want that. You can quite a bit to help a team. Later. In the summer in sometimes economic content. You -- a chance to make sure that you really are are good enough to merit to -- Trading prospects for. For a veterans so. I think the one key that I would point to. Really it out. Not getting better predict your rhetoric getting better for the long. The leader dead in the water this year they have a few veteran. Who presumably some team directors to include flea being one example there are other. They didn't make -- single. Traded up and I've heard so far and it just seemed to -- that they've got to be rebuilding mode and I don't know how you rebuild without you know make some. -- when you look you in the northwest Seattle obviously there's three teams out of allow card race is still in contention and other classics helical Felix loss last night -- -- seven innings gives up two runs and finally lose but. They go out again in Austin Jackson today. It do you see them being able to compete in that -- while Carter's second be enough offense to push them over the hump to maybe steal one of those final wildcard spots. I think they're good at running I don't know they're one of the favorites. You're looking at the angels are so good. And obviously not guaranteed but it seems. It's it's all it's very close to. Certain that the angels and the -- -- the place. Bet he's one wildcard. And out that you're talking about the mariners'. Maybe somebody Yale central and the second best team in Italy in I think the Mariners are just as good as. Any of those. But it means that there are good bet because they're based -- fighting with two or three orbit into that second wildcard -- but. The Dickens. They can keep compete with the -- What kind of -- do the Red Sox have one other organizations to be able to pull all these moves today and get as much talent and still hope to Lester comes back in free agency. You -- a lot of ticket the Red Sox are just really good. About doing their homework and laying the ground work for. Deals could that be -- basic -- back to the big deal or two but multi team deal that's really hard. You've just got to know everybody in India on the phone all the time and and have a good. Relations everybody in whatever reason. Whether you're a scheme that you have more or that it the most recent guy. Because he didn't know how to police and security that -- I think that's. It's it's a great testament to their. Their ability to do it out quickly and -- quickly. Robby and -- -- living some insight on today's Major League Baseball trade deadline. And some of the -- going on in baseball today could find him on Twitter at rob now -- Myers thought in EYER. Rob thank you for the time we appreciate it.
