So comment they have that Jeff Reese fuses to acknowledged. He was a great hitter. He was a power hitter when he needs to be he was probably the greatest defensive outfielder never reply. He was a fantastic base stealer. He had a rocket for on arm. You talk when Nate when they talk about five tool players. They're talking about Roberto club. And then Babe Ruth better than I have a vertical not gonna go there. No he said I was crazy Mercedes not the top down so let's do this is Babe Ruth better than her broke lamenting.

You don't you disparage baseball more than I doubt that the truth look at now. The weather. When you say that Joseph Morgan. Was a better player than Roberto laissez. You hurt the game now I'm not hurting anything you want the better Joseph Morgan if you called Joseph Morgan right now I'm asking him. He was say I don't belong in the same conversation. With the robot that ultimately. We're broke comment there it was worth 71 wins and dot org -- about it and Joseph Morgan was worth a 105 don't care about any of that well then the you don't care about having the real hurry made out of plane as long as Gil Morgan but Roberto Clement today label I have to get 3000 head of the dynamic. Player. And Joseph Morgan was better. Absolutely not because he's not as exciting doesn't mean he can't be good absolutely not it's the truth. You've you've ended the show. With Lou.
