Is you've got a poison your body in cheat and put your life at risk. Just to make money when money is the new guide to. And it takes away all morals of what you do -- this six -- twenty million would you sacrifice your family in cheat on your wife and but you're gonna get exposed -- you know what it is really easy to rationalize computer Melky Cabrera and I get it and Ryan -- the MVP of the league is do when you send it -- -- -- -- got away any got to go away when he got away Scot -- does OJ -- -- like if they are okay eight it was in his blood. And it's there -- that he will FedEx delivery guy where if you're battle to show you didn't Melky thought about doing that Sam I think that kind mishandled the shipment can work for crying and of course there's others that that that. Absolutely hands down there's still -- -- so I I really got a beef I can't stand. But see league I think he ruined baseball in general I -- the guy when do I hate. The players union I think they're evil.

Some you'll have to that it's all so I don't care what you say in debt that could harm or some. How is gonna come back to you some way or another it's a moral issue. And we know morals anymore do I want my kid. Who's who's starting out at whatever spore is doing knowing you're never gonna go anywhere unless you -- yourself -- two runs and and sheet. That is what you're telling society. That is the it's not just baseball it's not just I -- -- does he. Are you willing is so all these people or go do root for your entertainment -- children. You don't have morals and -- have a long term commitment to look at your life in your family are you willing I can see. Himself -- -- can go to and then go -- hard yet there's like there's a realization that my -- can go to you know -- the Stanford got high school I you know literally a better neighborhood they -- you know they live. A better life for just put a little -- inject myself whenever I am Republican and -- Cabrera. Up till this year in his career and made six and a half million. This year is Macon six million people who he doubled his earnings this year went right next year right who's gonna but make forty million -- get a contract probably. I don't know four years forty million I was. It's another thing it's another reason why he should take it and basically it's ruining baseball it is made. These ball players they don't care about anything when I -- Jose Reyes last year. I hate the guy you know I hate him because. He played half speed has played his whole career is a Mac we saw his potential last year why do you play that way analysts say was on some -- He played his life off for one year. And we're the ones that are -- to come see him. And everyone knew he was our you don't leaving everyone we never got -- Jacoby Ellsbury is the same way where everyone knows he's leaving -- so he plays to get the money so you're playing with the person that's buying a ticket to come see you. And really you don't care about the fan and you don't care about the organization. Is no more hair and I blame that all the way up the blood Sealy. And owners and everyone that your lessons -- his -- man. I'm not Yankee hater Mets fan anybody baseball fan. Like baseball fans. And and -- jets fan I don't care I grew up the cowboys fan. I grew up I grew up seven these cowboys I would see that. Offensive line all stand up in units India for -- really -- that the gas -- owner -- a lot of good actor and -- and then they show -- it is rather an Adams unsolved and solve this is a great show ever made the jets would give you much more material you know if you wanted to work gets a grade -- elected to whoever's winning -- really I'm not. -- you know satellite kind of tainted -- a little bit once I started learning and give me inside. And hanging out were real ballplayers were hung out real ball players. Is when I saw it too much -- -- -- on what do we Brady wasn't there you -- before Brady's time running game. And neither is is so Brady retard Tom Brady was -- who -- me he had no this is in New York. When I turn any hosted and hung out with those are -- now he came on after me yeah he can I mean get a couple of guys who hope our Keith Hernandez are Joseph Montana -- -- -- -- -- it was going on nine these nine these ball teams. And that's with steroids really start you know -- And I get to seal out the ball players I guess I was crew rushed. I was I was crushed. As a fan. To see. We're really went we went on and and the lack of real fair. Of of the team in the of this four and it was just my hanging final full week yet did as it was it was morneau weakest I've become friends certain guys as.

John made the distinction between the guys who -- all -- bonds and Clemens anyway they have polonium money -- -- -- overall it was anyway. And they got so greedy that they make me sick it was borderline miner in the guys who were a lot of late game. -- guys aren't gonna make any money aren't gonna have a great life yeah and they say if I do this it's -- it's the ultimate deal with a double. You know what it's it's it's the deal with a double case closed and these -- Suisse euros and into the girl after she passes out it appears is life's about guess why you're not good enough. Right they're not good enough face the fact she weren't as good as you thought you are. This -- better that guys better. Case closed get over it if you got a stake in needling you it's time to -- -- get a real job and -- -- -- -- bit more Melky Cabrera is out there and escorting them at Honolulu half the league is doing that I believe that and I don't believe that'll happen and leave a lot of guys do it because it just seemed so easy.

And he has stories and I just find it fascinating. You're in the presence of his genius but he knew he was self destructive and it was pushing you knew was you know not gonna gonna burn out here. Again steering with morals and a double and all that stuff right there's a connection there if you're in and at that time yes there was there is still when he came and back then I still.
