6:55 pm
fans. major league baseball, very aware that this fort was turning into kind of a cartoon announcing that there will be a slightly different baseball is here put into play. it's gonna be a tad heavier. the idea maybe fewer home runs but more real baseball. the giants, who put a little more emphasis on power, the past year, are not worried about the change of the baseball. so, says manager gabe kapler, everything from a hitter's perspective it zach really pretty simple. it's high line drives always work from a hit from pictures perspective. i could see it, providing some confidence. maybe of all of it would have gone out over the course of last couple years dozen. i know where we can make our impact, and that's in the messaging with our players, and our messaging hasn't changed. it won't change based on the baseball. all right. so the oakland a's also in their second day of spring training, little down the road in mesa,
6:56 pm
arizona, pitchers and catchers. and, of course, most of the talk it their camp has revolved around all the guys that are missing like some markets, simeon and liam hendriks nowhere in sight, but there is one key piece that they didn't lose to free agency this offseason. that would be right hander mike fires who agreed to a one year deal in this offseason worth three point. $5 million to stay put with oakland fires very reliable in the oakland rotation talks about his first foray into free agency. it was scary. i'm not gonna lie. i mean being a free agent special in these times. it's tough. you don't really know how things are gonna shape up and i was trying hard to come back here. i mean, that was that was my number one option for me. i love it here. so you know, i'm still living. no, my dream, so it's all about got there and having fun and helping anyone i can. can you

6:58 pm
uniforms? we might even have a change of uniform for another quarterback for the name of the shawn watson. but we definitely do have the eagles with a big trade of their once untouchable carson wentz go into the indianapolis colts. they need a quarterback now that philip rivers has a retired wind signed a $128 million contract a couple of years ago for various reasons. he's kind of gone downhill eagles are going get a third round pick and a conditional second round pick next year. all right, we all know about the terrible weather. that's it. the midwest and, of course, texas some people finding a different way to get around like this gentleman who strapped a big fan on his best to get through the snow that was the god of love it. no well, that's doing him. but well, that's doing him. but that's the sporting life.
6:59 pm
boy, it seems like forever since the four of us have been out to eat, you know? just the guys. oh, god! yes, we get it. you have a girlfriend now. a little jealous, are we? no, i'm not jealous. all right, i'd kill a hobo if it'd get me laid. now, can we order? oh, dear lord, they redid the menu. so what? it's the same food. oh, is it? look at this. general tso's chicken is no longer listed under "specialties." it's now under "chicken." so? yes, general tso. not "tso," the chicken, "so" the question. so? so, why is it no longer a specialty? did the chef lose confidence in the dish or himself? and look over here. "shrimp in mobster sauce." what is mobster sauce? it's obviously a typo.
7:00 pm
perhaps. or perhaps this restaurant's now a front for organized crime. for all we know, the mobster sauce contains actual chunks of deceased mobsters. no, no, no, no-- i think it just means it's the kind of sauce that mobsters like. it doesn't mean any of that! it's a typo. you know what? let's just get a pizza. good idea. we'll go to corleone's. sure, no mobsters there. you know, the more i think about it, the mobster sauce couldn't possibly contain chunks of mobster. and why is that? it was listed under "seafood." what if they were mobsters who slept with the fishes? (laughing) leonard, are we having a serious conversation or not? leonard: what the...? the tv is gone.
