Discuss the latest series. Did anything surprise you?

That's two series wins in a row for Brooklyn. A series road win is always good to build on. We went into Mexico against, what was it they said, the leagues two best pitchers and walked out with a series win. So you ask if I was surprised, yeah, surprised we didn't sweep them. Other than that, I'm glad coach Mewes beat his old team and let them see what they had all along and ignored. Hey Mexico, thanks, we are happy to have him.

Talk about at least one piece of news. 
Well let me just say If I was Bill Moore I would be fighting also, fighting to get out of Mexico. Besides that, oh yeah-, let me ask you guys something which group of you gives out these monthly awards, Honestly!..How the hell do you not recognize what Esco has done. Listen, nothing against Alcala, the guy put up some big numbers, but not more that Esco. The man has 7 HR's and 16 RBI's batting .365, a damn shame I tell you. Listen, never mind how you feel about me, don't jip my guys.
 
Which player on another team has impressed you the most?
None more than my own guy right here in Brooklyn, Ted Esco, I not impressed with anyone more than I am impressed with him.

Talk about your opponent this week. Which player will be the key to win the series?
Chicago is coming in, nice to see a team with less wins than us. (Laughs to himself) seriously, they have trouble on the road and they are coming into Brooklyn, the fans are starting to pay attention. They see we don't take any shit from anyone. Brooklyn is not to be taken lightly. That game against Virginia woke us up and let these guys know we can play beat any team if we start coming together. Coach Mewes has these boys rocking, so if there isn't any more question I'm gonna get rollin.

This is Brooklyn baby! This right here is all about attitude. It's about how you carry yourself on and off the field. It ain't for everyone. I watched my father for years try to play both sides and no matter what he did he could never get it right in someones eyes. I remember all the times he would call me with a sound in his voice like we wanted to quit. With every move he made he always tried to placate and was always misunderstood. He wasn't who he should have been. Coming from his background in professional wrestling he always had to play a character and he could never let it go. Never knew when he had to be a heel or face. I take his career as a lesson. There was a reason I wanted Brooklyn. Here, this is New York. Keep it real or keep it moving. I will not be misquoted because I say what I feel so I hope you feel what I say. So to answer your question I think I'm the perfect guy, with the perfect attitude and demeanor for this team. You say "cockiness" I say "confidence". You say "bad reflection of this team and organization" I say "Model of this team and organization". I can't worry about what anyone outside my organization thinks of me. I am straight up and down like six O'clock. I'm all business. You mess with my team you mess with me. It's a culture that is starting to resonate through this team as you see on the field. We got each others back. So you guys ask the questions, I answer them and What ever reflection is being created is coming from the brain-trust in front me.

Coach, with all the bullshit that was written about us at the start I credit you and the staff for making sure these guys stayed focus, believe in themselves and have each others back. We are playing good right now because of your leadership out there. I see how they are responding and I think we about to make some serious noise.

Let's keep it rolling. I'll get back with you coach

Ms. Michaels can I speak to Mr. Esco

---

Mr. Esco, you have been having a hell of a stretch. You seem to be in rhythm and it's propelling us to some important wins. Despite the media taking their dislike for me out on our team I want us to put that chip on our shoulder and force them to recognize us.

I'm just doing my thing and proving each and every day that I'm the best player in the game. The awards will come, I'm not worried about being shafted for a month award or a weekly award.

THat's what I like to hear. We don't need anything from them. We make our own way. I look forward to see you wreck these boys that we are about to play. I'll let you get back to BP

Ms. Michaela can you get me coach Mewes please.

----

Coach, the way we are playing we have a chance to sweep these boys. I want us to keep our foot on their throats and press down if it even looks like they are getting air.

Discuss the latest series. What was one thing you loved and one thing you hated?
Well there wasn't much I loved. We got beat by a team inferior to us. We came off some big wins in the prior weeks and I think we might have taken Chicago for granted. We have to do a better job of staying and playing up to all competition. We are in no position to decide who we can play up or down to. We need to play everyone with all we got. So it's no surprise when I say I hated losing the series to Chicago. We underestimated them because I don't think Chicago had what it took to beat us but we allowed them the opportunity and they won the series because of it. Listen i love this team, I love the coaches and I love the fans but as a team we aren't quiet where we want to be so we can't lay back on anyone, we can't afford to play that way.

Talk about at least one piece of news.   
Well I am shocked that GM Bone is already giving up on his season. I promise the Brooklyn fans I will never waive the white flag so if Bone wants to trade away opportunity, Brooklyn is in the market for opportunity.  To many guys talk about trading solid to great players for the future, but who can tell what the future holds. Most draft picks take time to develop so how far in the future are we speaking. Listen, he can have all my potential future for some of that present he's offering. (looks into the camera) GM Bone hit me up
 
With all-star voting underway, what is one name that surprises you towards the top and what is one name you feel is not getting enough love?
I'll always go to bat for my boys so the fact that Esco ain't the top vote getter tells me that Brooklyn has to come out and represent. He's already starting but let's get our boy max votes and while you are at it, throw some towards Jamie, Lamonica and Silvers, let's show all our boys on the ballot mad love.


Talk about your opponent this week. What player on the opposing team do you have to worry about the most?
First off let me say I'm excited to get to Tokyo. I love that city, can't wait to hit Kabukicho area of Shinjuku. Normally I would hate 16 hour flights. But Japan is a different beast all to itself so i look forward to the stay. As far as baseball goes, we are playing a pretty tough 10-5 team that seems to a bit of everything. With that said I don't give a damn about any of what I just said because Brooklyn has already proven we can hang with the best of them. Hopefully we get enough time to recover from the jet lag so we can play some serious ball. We aren't going over there expecting the fans to sit respectfully as they golf clap for every bloop single. I expect by the time we leave they will be calling for us to commit harakiri to ourselves. We aren't going over there to bow and sign autographs, we are going over there to knock down buildings and have them all running screaming.........Punishers, ...I bet you thought I was gonna say Godzilla didn't you.

Absolutely, first off, if you were gonna suspend us you had to do it last week while we were still here playing a team like Mafia, don''t wait until the team has to board a 16 hour flight to drop the hammer. I was't going to bring it up because I already planned to appeal this. To me it's a bunch of stuffy suits trying to send a early message but this is baseball. Since the first pitch ever thrown baseball has always policed itself. You talk trash, you flip bats you get brushed back. You give long stares and take your time around the bases you get plunked in the ass or back. This is the unwritten rule, we all know it but hardly speak about it. Let's not forget this seems pretty harsh considering the instigator in all this, Johnny "Can't handle a Baseball off his backside" wasn't even given a fine. How does that look. What message are we sending. Flip bats, long stares, slow walk the homeruns and show up the other team, is that O.K.? So yes I will appeal. Johnny "Bat Flip, Baby Cry" ain't getting fined I want all penalties dropped and both teams issued warnings at most.

Ms. Michaels can you get me the league office on the line please

---

PBL Commissioner Jay Quist, good day sir.


Mr. Quist you probably already know why I am making this call. I am appealing the suspensions of our players and coach for their part in the scrum that took place against Virginia Beach. As you know baseball has always been a sport that has policed itself. With that said, from the start of the first game there were no warnings issued and the league offices or anyone from your very own office did not release any statements. My guess was that this type of heat was drumming up some early season attention to create a rival. As you know sports need rivals to survive and draw in the fans. Being from Brooklyn I already know the league wants to paint us as the thugs, the hoodlums of the league and if that's the case do what you will with it. All press is good press. So to my point, not only were their no warnings issued through the series by the umps but when it finally got out a hand everyone stepped in with an opinion. it was no longer cool to have a rival or to have two teams going at it. Now it was a black eye. Bunch of Brooklyn thugs kicking dirt on the pretty boys of the league over in Virginia. If warnings were issued and we still got out of hand then I would accept any punishment handed down but the truth is that the men you hired to control the game failed to do so and now when things get heated to the point of a brawl they step back and my guys pay the price. That's only my first issue. My second issue is that we are setting a precedent that we can show up the other team without a little chin music to brush guys back or stare downs. Are we saying bat flips are ok, showing up the other team is cool but when the natural order of baseball happens and guys respond then we penalize them. Is that the message we want to send. Let baseball be baseball. It's early in the season and now we all know is that next time we meet the hook will be short and the suspensions will be heavy. Now, my third issue, we are playing in the U.S, these past few days and nothing, nada, silence. But now we are going to fly over 16 hours across the world and you want to take that opportunity away. Justice must be swift and firm, but here were are, a series here and there gone by and now we have figured out to suspend guys for fighting. It's pretty cut and dry and could have been handed down immediately. The black and blue has already worn off the tide's back side. I ask you to let us continue to play. Let our new coach do his job and let them be who they are. Men playing a game.

GM Phoenix, first off the reason the suspensions happened is because based off review, he imitated the fight that drew both dugouts onto the field. It takes awhile to conduct an accurate review of what transpired to make sure we are making the best decision for all parties involved.

A bat flip does not cause physical harm to anyone. The old tale of throwing at players deserves a spot six feet under, this is not the same game. Players can throw in excess of 100mph.

The suspension is final Mr. Phoenix Jr and I hope you also take this time to reflect on how youíve conducted yourself. Mr. Winstead may not be suspended if you didnít say you did in fact throw at Virginia Beach. Itís not the league that has depicted you as thugs, but rather the way youíre running your team.

This is not the first year team like Tokyo, London, Mexico City, and Thunder Bay have been in the league. So I donít see any valid point about missed opportunity.

Unless you have anymore questions, I think Iíve addressed your concerns here. Good luck this week.

(Hangs up the phone)

Ms. Michaels can I please speak to coach Mewes

----

Coach, I just got off the phone with the asshat who calls himself commish trying to appeal your suspensions but according to him we are playing in a new age. He stated that guys today throw 100mph. I guess he wasn't paying attention to that other league back in the days when that Nolan guy from Texas could throw over a 100 MPH, or that 6'5 unit guy could throw over 100 mph but I guess they remember what they want to remember just just justify their decision. Coach, I apologize coach. I explained it to him the way it is and he just didn't like when i said baseball polices itself. I guess he wanted me to go in there and kiss his ass and play choir boy to his alter. I'm straight forward coach. There are two things I don't do well with reporters and absentee authority. I should have known when it came to pretty boy Johnny that they would go deaf. Coach, Don't change a thing. To me suspensions don't send messages they just piss me off. The league is gonna paint us a certain way and we are fine with that. We play hard and fair but if someone tries to show us up we are gonna have something to say. Well, listen I guess you get to enjoy japan a bit more than we do. When we get to Japan, we will game plan. Let the other coaches know our line ups and then I have a connect willing to sell me front row tickets for you and Winstead.

Good thing I wrote it down, I'll fax it to him. Thank you Ms. Michaels can you send all the assistants in here please.

--

Gentlemen, It is what it is. The league needs a whooping boy. They need to bring the hammer down. Just being called Brooklyn makes us an easy target to brand us thugs. That's fine. They had to choose us or Virginia and they chose us instead of equity. This team leans on the leadership you guys bring to the table. Mr. Evans I would like you to take over head coaching duties until Coach Mewes joins us again. I'll leave the line ups up to you since you work closely with these players. Any questions gentlemen?
