Joining us right now to talk about the authenticity of the game his own book.
And what he feels about this latest scandal in sports Brandon Steiner.
Founder and chairman of the senate sports marketing memorabilia and author -- you've got to have balls he's got a lot of them most of the world -- -- -- It's true and you know I think there's a home available.
On the street that are violent.
Form of Iran and to the great players of our era police we thought they were.
-- -- you know are now looking -- more like -- bust.
And you same attitude as it is -- been as fortunate.
But he -- we've been very careful -- Steiner sports you know we've been very sensitive in not just signing players managers haven't you know.
-- that you know looks like a duck quacks like a duck.
You know we're gonna players and we're all will -- earlier will move into a completely different direction put our energy in the players we know.
Pretty much without any doubt that they're solid.
And you know I think we're all know we've got people that love and watched a game we all know there's a pool push back you know players.
They can have him be -- in -- -- my girl -- that -- is doing some things that doesn't make sense.
So you know there's still always we will push back you know these guys like kids.
And we're talking about Tony bosh and Joni bosh is evident -- disclose his client was one of the reasons is it out and get out surgeries on it he's going to say reportedly did he not only.
Sold it to -- surgeries that he injected him this will be the third time that this guy's -- I don't believe the causing -- story.
Where a cousin Yuri to experimented they got -- to know if you were shooting up I inevitably than 2009 how I don't understand why Anthony to -- -- known trafficker performance enhancing drugs.
He went without telling the Yankees.
And now I don't understand that we're supposed to give him the benefit of the doubt that he is not on Tony bosh is list.
-- -- this guy at eighteen was a star the major leagues what is he thinking.
Well what happens is and you know he is just -- that spiral CE EE everybody has -- story and you come up with a one -- -- mean it's true and you come up with -- story you stick with it and he get used to you used to that -- -- convince yourself of that story for whatever it is and for you know it.
You pick your head up and you hear him out here complete -- and I disarray I don't think he's living in the normal real world a lot of these guys -- we are.
-- common sense dictates we you know you can sit down you have people around you that would sell you the truth that what are you doing.
I figured he lives -- he's walking on air and I think in -- particularly in Alex's case you know I was she's been guided misguided many many times improperly.
So does surprise me to see him guided again and you know it's a shame for the game but a -- may be a good thing for the game maybe it's a good -- -- now.
-- -- even cracked down on some of these guys even more -- -- game gets to the final little phase of this gets cleaned up.
You know for the individual players their caught failing a drug test it will forever change the value their autograph of their book and everything makes wanna sell.
You don't person next affected because you're the best in biggest senior field see -- catch you you're holding on to Roger Clemens his glove.
And you grabbed his cleats in Cooperstown once this and then all of a sudden it turns out they're strong allegations in personal opinions and testimony that says he.
Is cheating and I don't know what to believe -- a twenty year career how does that affect you.
I have some Roger Clemens balls -- -- out there wasn't by any.
Worthwhile listen you've thought in our system to accuse me up and I think and I haven when Alexei -- been a huge fan of Alex since -- one -- -- and and we did a lot of stuff -- and I'm sitting with some stops and you know designed to reach -- -- -- dude we've signed with -- with -- many many times in his primary Yankee.
You know we have the Yankees China relationship and and we do a lot of things would almost every Yankee Alex -- -- work with since Seattle.
You're doing a lot of stuff which some scratching my head.
Like I do would Roger Clemens -- summer and -- Mark McGwire who your guys we've done really well with all of a sudden the music has stopped.
And there is no chair and you cannot be stuck in your goal is not be stuck with a lot of his stuff well I mean only -- to -- you know where I'm trying to figure out like toward to a whole sentence create some kind of collect to want to -- all the cheaters.
And maybe you know maybe at some point that dragged down the road -- -- adjusting CNN I got this collection of all the cheaters.
And it's a case full of units when he when it for the most prominent guys -- cheated.
And maybe that becomes a collectible and itself do you think it is try to make the best of the word I'm trying to get sideways on this because -- I think back you know I look at the black Sox scandal -- look at a guy like Al -- I mean people collect fat.
In a big big way would -- applicable I think what people -- -- you know all of it back in those days and hit the and that's pretty dark and DG.
You know type -- thing -- go to Boston and I think this is darkened NG but you know at some point.
Down the road -- be that it treatment about all these guys are kind of cheated and went up tomorrow group.
Carmona sat together and you know from a collectibles standpoint -- that's -- -- do does this miscellaneous group of stuff that -- -- Well I here's an example and that is you know what that's not a bad idea because you know if they never fail a drug test.
If they're accused but not convicted.
That's the gray area.
Now we I personally think Roger Clemens every direction how -- -- been positive -- watch what he's done over the troops.
I'll watch three's -- of their families.
I've seen him moved in different situations I was never beat reporter cover him every day where he was the survey -- and hard to deal with I never saw that.
So I was -- -- rooting for because I know our party worked.
But there with a rumor started and the accusations came down from very credible people used to train -- sure they an axe to grind.
What do you do when he's exonerated.
It's confusing me and he never find anybody has a better were saying about him so -- like such a confusing case study because he was -- really know the good one of the good gas.
Any so convicted about his innocence that he it does create confusion but.
Looks like a duck quack marks a document you like wait a minute you sit prices.
I mean he's he's trying to fall off the table yeah yeah -- I mean you know he's -- he's -- part of discussion after I always tell players like we can argue about the price in this that.
The question are you part of the discussion.
He it you know we talk about collecting in great yankees and he he's just not part of -- discussion and think about all that conversation when -- retiring and Jeter.
May be retiring in the next year -- are there people always talk about the greatest yankees of all time where marinara Rivera stance but they never mentioned.
Roger Clemens who -- to be one of the great Yankee pitchers.
The only he just played a portion of his career yeah he did twenty years the fact is how he's viewed.
But if he petted his stuff you -- way yet he admitted using it.
He had a stood up and there are a lot of times you know people will forgive -- if it seems like it's an honest mistake the wave way he pitched it.
Was you know this is so -- one time -- made -- Aaron I've -- then.
And people born and that -- you know Randy is -- as a lot of credibility with baseball fans -- Yankee fans.
And he's a good dude he's another guy that not a lot of people of anything other really good things to say about so he could shake -- -- he may have yeah -- enough.
Yeah amazing giving it all fame I don't know -- -- he's looked at his good guy where you know Dave Barry Bonds any department sent a square.
And I assume it won't happen won't mentally yet.
Never found guilty -- even though we have some testimony there.
And we had his Greg Anderson his -- go to jail rather until the truth about him.
We -- today he's back to a 180 pounds from 23800.
Ideas why this -- like the bike.
Really so we have the -- keep you loved sports the home run king in baseball.
Are outside the heavyweight did -- heavyweight champion the most coveted and he's not going to get into the hall of fame I would imagine.
I mean -- imagine sitting here you know with the Yankees star generally -- surly solid in rotating Alex Rodriguez.
This how we should have been the biggest -- -- -- -- my life.
With -- -- like Alex being a Yankee.
And purely down a seven under yeah -- that 700 probably are a lay up to maybe the greatest of all time home run hitters and I got to zero on my hands.
This is of the keep shop -- night.
As a baseball fan as a businessman.
But you know he try to look past that there is some good things happening in the game.
Highlight that -- -- -- down they keep drawn down.
On -- -- the drugs yes they're drilling down and I liked authentication of it that everybody's on board for the players to management and it seems like you maybe the PA may.
May get on board.
And so but here's the thing and -- -- Toyota brand Steiner heels as a show on yes.
He's the premier guy in terms as sports marketing and memorabilia he's been innovators entire career in his lead the charge.
Steiner sports is we can find them more and it just about anything you want to be as an avenue get -- But Brandon.
As you look at as you look at this game and we're at right now.
And that baseball is taking the most -- But at least they're trying to clean it up a you could tell we did football's clean -- -- -- -- -- next year when basketball starts getting tested that's got to keep you up at night -- Well football's -- -- -- propose an actual tragedy she -- fast but not implement -- is based off 12 for positive train wreck and his note how and they dig into that but.
I think the hard part for -- most people getting accustomed to now the way the game actually asked me play we need.
You know it three choose to go wind you know not the dominance on call from Manning not -- -- flying out of the park the pitchers even believe there -- a lot of pitches took steroids to.
The game now is a slower game and not that young guys and I jump -- you know out of -- out of the arena.
And you gotta get used to a good pitching match for two to one obvious to pitch is that good dictators aren't as good as you know -- -- you have so.
I think it's a big adjustment I think he's seen over the -- that the Yankees are very good team they're winning.
People like little bored -- wait a minute this game its speed its defense it's a bit you know -- -- for a couple good timely that's perhaps the game.
And that's -- you see so many you know -- was a time when the drugs people we're doing we're we're performance herders.
We -- -- Mickey Mantle was at a strip club drink with Billy Martin you wonder why Dwight Gooden was doing Coke instead of out training for the next season.
That was the big controversy were they gambling on the sports so they clearly were hurting the game.
Drug addicts aren't choosing to do perform existing drugs the guys saying.
If I get just a little bit better I'll give that much more money and -- be that much more successful the romo's tapping into the competitive instincts of the aptly.
Whether vaulted to game a little bit there's no doubt and straight a lot of confusion and you know baseball is all about the numbers -- comparing yesterday you mentioned earlier in your commentary but strip.
Mean a lot of how we enjoy baseball is looking at today vs yesterday.
Looking at cantor comparing stats comparing 3000 -- comparing people.
-- like -- Willie Mays.
To a current -- superstar and when you can't do that really confusing to the baseball purist and I.
And this is the problem we gotta get we gotta get a lid on this and get kind of -- because.
The one thing baseball has going for is that continuity where.
Other sports kill themselves I mean do you know who.
Can you name all the 101000 yard rushers or hit quarterback -- do 5000 yards or who the top scorers are fi NBA I mean.
And -- I think who the winner of all the master stroke which is probably the NBA I think he MB and have a sinister cheers is about to probably get on one of those storefronts I did it would -- And I -- for those -- this David Stern is really set him on a good course -- some very rough times Branstad is gonna stick around gonna talk about one of the biggest controversies bar sports everything in that is.
The possible suspension of up to twenty players most of which are impact players on their Major League teams including some of the biggest names in baseball brand is diners here back -- in just a moment.
