THIS WEEK HE’S HITTING 214 SO FAR IN WHAT COULD BE HIS FINAL SEASON WITH THE NATIONALS 9 FOR 49 IN JULY HE DOES HAVE 43 HOMERS THEN THERE’S THE GROUND BALL HE DIDN’T RUN OFF FRIDAY NIGHT, LEEING TO A — LEADING TO A MEETING THEY RECENTLY HAD A PLAYERS ONLY MEETING TO DISCUSS A LACK OF HEALTHY MARTINEZ GAVE HARPER THE DAY OFF SUNDAY SINCE HE WON’T GET AS MUCH OF A BREAK WITH THE DERBY TONIGHT AND, OF COURSE, THE GAME TOMORROW A POOR AVERAGE ON AN AVERAGE TEAM WITH, OF COURSE, FREE AGENCY LOOMING CLINTON YATES, WHAT’S THE LEVEL OF PRESSURE ON HARPER IN THE NEXT TWO DAYS? >> HE HAS TO SHOW THAT HE STILL CARES ABOUT THIS TEAM AND THIS CITY MLB TWEETED OUT TODAY, BASEBALL WORLD, WELCOME TO BRYCE HARPER CITY BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE WINDOW ON THIS TEAM IS CLOSING EVERYBODY IS GONNA UNDERSTAND, IF HE WANTS TO MOVE ON HOWEVER, HE DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO BE IN THE HOME RUN DERBY ANYWAY SO THIS DAY OFF SITUATION, IT’S SOMETHING THAT GIVES HIM — IT’S A VERY IMPOSSIBLE SPOT FOR HIM TO BE IN PROBABLY GOING TO MESS UP HIS SWING WHEN HE’S NOT IN A GOOD GROOVE ANYWAY AND HE’S GOT TO BE THERE, BECAUSE IT’S HIS O’NEAL FIELD NOT A GOOD SITUATION FOR HIM I KIND OF FEEL BAD FOR HIM, CONSIDERING >> JACKIE, HOW MUCH PRESSURE IS ON HARPER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS? >> I GUESS CLINTON IS RIGHT I GUESS THERE IS SOME PRESSURE ON HIM HIS MANAGER MAY HAVE PUT A LITTLE MORE PRESSURE ON HIM HE GAVE HIM THE DAY OFF HE GAVE HIM THE DAY OFF HE ACTUALLY SAID, I’M GIVING HIM THE DAY OFF BECAUSE HE’S GOT ALL THAT ALL-STAR STUFF HE’S GOT TO REST UP FOR WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE IS THAT TO THESE FANS FOR A TEAM THAT’S UNDERWHELMING THIS SEASON AND FOR A GUY WHO HAS GOT 100 STRIKEOUTS AND REALLY IS SCUFFLING? THAT’S NOT GONNA GET IT DONE FOR THE NATIONALS OR FOR HIM I HAVE GREAT SYMPATHY FOR HIM BUT, YOU KNOW, PLAYING IN THE HOME RUN DERBY, THAT’S GONNA CHANGE IT? IF I WERE HIM, I WOULDN’T DO IT I WOULDN’T PLAY IT I KNOW THE FANS WANT TO SEE IT, BUT IF THE FANS REALLY CARE ABOUT BRYCE HARPER, THEY’LL UNDERSTAND WHY IT WOULD BE SO BAD FOR HIM TO PARTICIPATE IN THAT PARTICULAR HOME RUN CONTEST SHOULDN’T DO IT >> HE’S SAT OUT ONLY ONE OF THE FIRST 95 GAMES NOT EXACTLY A GUY THAT TAKES A LOT OF DAYS OFF IS IT ONE OF THOSE DAMNED IF YOU DO, DAMNED IF YOU DON’T? IF HE SITS, THE FANS ARE DISAPPOINTED BUT LIKE JACKIE SAID, YOU GET A DAY OFF TO REST AND FANS ARE DISAPPOINTED AS WELL >> WE’RE MAKING SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT PARTICIPATING IN A HOME RUN DERBY ONE NIGHT, PARTICIPATING IN A GAME THE NEXT NIGHT HOW IS HE GOING TO GET THROUGH THESE FOUR DAYS? >> NO ONE HAS EVER DONE IT HA HA! >> I THINK THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FOR BRYCE HARPER IS JUST TRYING TO BE A HAPPY GUY I MEAN, I THINK HE GOT SO MUCH LOVE A FEW YEARS AGO FOR SAYING THAT’S A CLOWN QUESTION, BRO HE’S DECIDED TO HAVE THIS PERMANENT, SOUR EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE HE JUST DOESN’T SEEM LIKE THE KIND OF GUY WHO WANTS TO DO ANY OF THIS YOU THINK ABOUT AARON JUDGE IN LAST YEAR’S ALL-STAR GAME, HOW MUCH HE WAS SMILING AND ENJOYING HIS MOMENT I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE BRYCE HARPER ENJOY HIS MOMENT >> SARAH? >> YEAH I THINK BRYCE HARPER WOULD LIKE THAT TOO UNFORTUNATELY, HIS TEAM IS NOT PLAYING VERY WELL HE’S NOT PLAYING VERY WELL AND HE’S GETTING CALLED OUT FOR NOT RUNNING THAT DOUBLE PLAY EXIT VELOCITY NUMBERS ON HOW HARD HE’S HIT THE BALL, WHICH RESULTED IN A DOUBLE PLAY DOESN’T MAKE SENSE THIS IS A GUY WHO IS FEELING A TON OF PRESSURE IT’S ABOUT NOT PLAYING UP TO HIS STANDARDS IT’S ABOUT HIS TEAM NOT PLAYING WELL ENOUGH AND IT’S OBVIOUSLY ABOUT THE PRESSURE OF FIGURING OUT HIS NEXT MOVE, KNOWING THAT HE’S PROBABLY GOING TO DISAPPOINT A LOT OF PEOPLE I UNDERSTAND JACKIE THERE ARE GUYS WHO HAVE GONE TO THE HOME RUN DERBY AND HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT BURNT OUT IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON BECAUSE OF THAT THAT’S NOT A LOOK YOU’RE GOING FOR IF YOU’RE THE NATIONALS AT THE SAME TIME, IF THIS IS HIS LAST YEAR WITH THE NATIONALS, IF THEY’RE NOT PLAYING WELL, THIS MIGHT BE ONE BRIGHT SPOT FOR THE FANS AND FOR HIM ON HIS WAY OUT, SO I UNDERSTAND WHY HE’S DOING IT >> CLINTON, WITH FREE AGENCY LOOMING, YOU HAD THE ANONYMOUS EXECUTIVE PHASE OUT A WINNING PLAYER YOU’VE GOT SOME SAYING HE MAY NOT GET THE $400 MILE WE EXPECTED OTHERS ARE SAYING IT’S ONE YEAR YOU DON’T SIGN A CONTRACT BASED ON ONE DIFFICULT SEASON HOW MUCH HAS THIS YEAR SO FAR, AND A POTENTIAL SECOND HALF, GOING TO AFFECT HIS VALUE? >> I THINK A LOT HERE’S THE THING, FOR REASONS LIKE THE HOME RUN DERBY, FOR REASONS LIKE THE ALL-STAR GAME, HE’S WORTH $400 MILLION TO ONE TEAM THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS THAT’S WHAT MATTERS HERE IF HE’S GOING TO WANT TO TRY TO GET THAT BIG MONEY FROM HIS SIMPLE STAR STANDPOINT, THIS TOWN LOSING HIM IS A

DIFFERENT THING THAN HIM GOING SOMEWHERE ELSE >> JACKIE? >> I WOULD SAY THAT’S ESPECIALLY TRUE IF HE GOES SOMEWHERE ELSE FOR LESS MONEY I THINK THAT’S A REALISTIC SCENARIO, HONESTLY >> I THINK CHICAGO IS THE BEST PLACE >> HA HA! >> WHAT A SHOCK! >> COME ON DOWN TO TEXAS! >> ALL RIGHT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET’S MOVE ON, SHALL WE? AND REVIEW THE REVIEW THAT TURNED OUT TO BE THE TURNING POINT OF THE WORLD CUP FINALS THE CROATIA COACH, QUOTE, I JUST WANT TO SAY ONE SENTENCE ABOUT THAT PENALTY YOU DON’T GIVE A PENALTY LIKE THAT IN THE WORLD CUP FINAL, CLOSE QUOTE MICHAEL SMITH, I JUST WANT TO ASK OUR NATIONAL PANEL ONE QUESTION ABOUT THAT IS HE RIGHT THAT IT WAS THE WRONG DECISION TO REVIEW AND ASSESS A HANDBALL PENALTY IN THAT SITUATION, IN THE WORLD CUP FINAL? SARAH SPAIN, START US OFF >> YEAH I MEAN, IT’S A TOUGH CALL TO MAKE IN A WORLD CUP GAME THAT’S WHAT THE COACH SAID, CROATIA’S COACH I THINK IT’S THE RIGHT CALL AND I THINK WHAT HE SAID LATER WAS MORE IMPORTANT YOU’RE NOT GONNA WIN IF YOU GIVE UP FOUR GOALS SO TRYING TO CLAIM THAT THE WIN WAS TAKEN OUT BY A HANDBALL PENALTY, WHEN THEY’RE ONLY DOWN 2-1 WITH PLENTY OF TIME LEFT, I THINK IS NOT ADMITTING THAT FRANCE WAS THE BETTER TEAM IN THE END, IT WAS NOT THE KIND OF CALL THAT DECIDED THE GAME AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS >> CLINTON? >> SAME IT’S A PENALTY IN MY BOOK BUT I WOULD HAVE COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD IF THE REFEREE FOUND THAT UNINTENTIONAL ENOUGH TO NOT CALL THE OVERALL ISSUE IS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH VAR IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE APPLICATION OF IT IN THIS CONTEXT, THAT’S A DIFFERENT DISCUSSION THEY GOT TO IT RELATIVELY QUICKLY AND MOVED ON WITH THE MATCH IN A WAY THAT DIDN’T BOG DOWN THE WHOLE SITUATION >> JACKIE? >> ALL OF THAT IS TRUE BUT I THINK MOMENTUM IS ONE OF THE MOST PRECIOUS COMMODITIES IN ALL OF SPORTS IT DID CHANGE THE MOMENTUM IN THIS GAME BEYOND THAT, I CAN’T HAVE A LOT OF SYMPATHY BECAUSE THERE WERE TWO GOALS THAT CROATIA GAVE UP THAT THEY HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR BUT I DO HAVE SYMPATHY FOR THE COACH IN THOSE SITUATION IT’S HARD TO RE-CREATE THAT MOJO IT JUST IS >> I AGREE WITH THE COACH, ONLY IN THIS SENSE HE SAYS THAT’S A CALL YOU DON’T MAKE IN A WORLD CUP FINAL, UP UNTIL THIS YEAR, BECAUSE THERE WAS NEVER ANY REPLAY UNTIL THIS YEAR >> HA HA! >> IN THE COURSE OF THE GAME, YOU MAY NOT SEE IT BUT IF YOU HAVE TIME TO GO LOOK AT IT, SLOW IT DOWN, IT’S CLEARLY A PENALTY BUT I AGREE WITH EVERYBODY YOU KNOW, IT’S HARD TO SAY THEY WERE PROBABLY GOING TO LOSE BUT THEY WERE PROBABLY GOING TO LOSE, BECAUSE THEY DID GIVE UP SOME BAD GOALS AND FRANCE WAS JUST TOO GOOD >> NOT TO MENTION THEY HAD 24 HOURS LESS REST CLINTON, THEN THERE’S THE SENSE THAT WE DIDN’T GET FRANCE’S BEST THROUGHOUT THIS TOURNAMENT MAYBE THEY JUST DIDN’T NEED IT HOW IMPRESSIVE OR HOW BEAUTIFUL, IF YOU WILL, A WORLD CUP CHAMPION IS FRANCE? >> TO ME, THEY’RE A GOOD STORY FOR REASONS THAT DON’T REALLY HAVE TO DO WITH SOCCER THE THIRD GUY OVERALL TO COME BACK TO THE COACH WITH ONE NATION AND THE INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR WHOSE MOTHER WAS PREGNANT WITH HIM THE LAST TIME FRANCE WON AND THE YOUNG PLAYER OF THE TOURNAMENT LAST TIME THEY WERE HERE THE ENTIRE MAKEUP RACIALLY AND JUST IN GENERAL CULTURALLY OF THAT TEAM HAS BEEN A STORY LINE THROUGHOUT THE TOURNAMENT AND IT’S BEEN FUN FOR ME FORGET ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED ON THE PITCH >> SARAH? >> THE COACHES ARE SPOT ON THE FRENCH COACH, WE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHAMPION BUT WE’RE STILL THE CHAMPION THE FACT THAT WE’RE TRYING TO DISSECT WHETHER THEY LOOKED GOOD ENOUGH IS UNIMPORTANT THEY’RE GOING TO BE EVEN BETTER IN FOUR YEARS, SO EVERYBODY LOOK OUT, BECAUSE THEY WON, NOT EVEN AT THEIR BEST >> AND CLINTON MENTIONED THE FIRST TEENAGER TO SCORE A GOAL IN A WORLD CUP SINCE PELÉ WHEN WE GET TO THE NEXT WORLD CUP, MESSI AND RONALDO ARE GOING TO BE 35 AND 37 THIS GUY CAN BE THE NEXT STAR >> MAYBE FRANCE IS SAVING HIM FOR 2022 NOVAK DJOKOVIC’S THIRD TITLE IT DIDN’T TAKE JOKER MUCH TO TAKE CARE OF THE KEVIN ANDERSON CERTAINLY NOT RELATIVE TO THE FIVE-HOUR MARATHON JOKER RECEIVED AGAINST RAFA NADAL AND ANGELIQUE KERBER DENYING SERENA WILLIAMS NUMBER EIGHT — WIMBLEDON NUMBER EIGHT AND MAJOR NUMBER 24 OBVIOUSLY A REMARKABLE RUN, NONETHELESS, FOR SERENA WILLIAMS TIM, WHO WAS THE BIGGER WIMBLEDON WINNER, JOKER OR QUEEN SERENA, EVEN IN DEFEAT? >> I’M GOING TO LEAN TOWARDS SERENA, EVEN THOUGH DJOKOVIC AND KERBER ARE GREAT COMEBACK STORIES ON THEIR OWN THERE WAS A TIME WHEN A 30-YEAR-OLD, THOSE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE AT THE END OF THEIR CAREER, UNTIL FEDERER AND SERENA KIND OF REDEFINED HOW LONG YOU CAN PLAY THIS GAME SERENA DOING WHAT SHE DID, GETTING TO THE FINAL, PEOPLE

QUESTIONING WHETHER SHE SHOULD EVEN BE THE 25 SEED GOING IN, MAKING IT TO THE FINAL TOO, THAT’S GOT TO BE THE STORY FOR ME >> YEAH SHE’S NUMBER 28 IN THE WORLD NOW, UP 153 SPOTS >> YEAH A BIG WIN FOR JOKER WORTH NOTING, HIS 12 MAJORS SINCE 2011 ARE THE MOST OF ANYBODY THERE’S ALL THESE GREAT NAMES OUT THERE, BUT HE’S BEEN THE GUY BUT HOW DO YOU TOP SERENA? I’M SAYING SERENA IN PART BECAUSE IT’S A WIN FOR US FOR ANY OF US WHO WONDERED, WILL SHE BE ABLE TO COME BACK AFTER THE BABY? WILL HE WANT TO? WILL SHE BE THE SAME? NOT QUITE THERE YET BUT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, NOT JUST AFTER THE BIRTH BUT THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE SHE HAD, HUGE WINNER >> CLINTON? >> ABSOLUTELY YOU KNOW MY BIAS REGARDING SERENA SHE SAID VERY EXPLICITLY AS WELL, I’M DOING THIS FOR THE MOMS AND I TRIED INCREDIBLE MESSAGE I ALSO LOVE THE FACT THAT WHEN SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT HE’S THE GREATEST AND HOW SHE DEALS WITH THAT, GETTING EVERYBODY’S BEST IS WHAT MAKES HER BETTER WE’RE GETTING SUCH AN HONEST COMPETITOR I LOVE THAT I ALSO LOVE THE FACT THAT NOW THE RULE HAS CHANGED ON WHAT HAPPENS WITH WOMEN IN THE RANKINGS WHEN THEY COME BACK FROM PREGNANCY, BECAUSE OF SERENA IT’S GREAT >> JACKIE? >> THAT IS GREAT AND THAT’S A REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT DISTINCTION, CLINTON IT’S JUST TOO BAD IT TOOK SO LONG THAT SOMEONE LIKE SERENA HAD TO MAKE THAT CHANGE I THINK EVERYBODY WINS IN THIS, INCLUDING KERBER WHAT A GREAT COMEBACK AND DJOKOVIC, I DIDN’T KNOW THIS UNTIL I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH DO YOU REALIZE HE OWNS THE WINNING RECORDS AGAINST BOTH FEDERER AND NADAL? DID ANYBODY ELSE ON THE PANEL KNOW THAT THIS MORNING? I CERTAINLY DID NOT WHETHER OR NOT DJOKOVIC CAN KEEP GOING AT 31, THAT SEEMS YOUNG ALL OF A SUDDEN IN THE GAME OF TENNIS, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF THE GUYS HE’S LOOKING UP AT ARE BOTH OLDER THAN HIM >> ALL RIGHT LOCKED UP IN A TIGHT ONE THERE’S YOUR HORN HERE’S YOUR BREAK TALKING ABOUT LEBRON $500 SHORTS WHEN WE COME BACK >> THAT’S NOTHING FOR HIM I HOPE THEY’RE 100 >> BUY OR SELL >> ALL RIGHT WE BEGIN BUY OR SELL WITH THE FIRST IN-SEASON MANAGERIAL CHANGE BY A TEAM WITH BARELY A WINNING RECORD, HAVING LOST 10 OF 15, IN DANGER OF MISSING THE PLAYOFF FOR THE THIRD STRAIGHT SEASONS THE CARDINALS FIRED MIKE MATHENY ON SATURDAY, WHEN LOSING GAMES THERE CAME TALK THAT MATHENY MIGHT HAVE BEEN LOSING THE CLUBHOUSE LONG CRITICIZED FOR HIS IN-GAME STRATEGY OR LACK THEREOF BUY OR SELLING, THE RIGHT MOVE FOR THE CARDS TO FIRE HIM RIGHT NOW? >> I GOTTA BUY IT HE LOVES TO TALK ABOUT THE GOOD OLD DAYS AND THE TOUGHNESS OF PLAYERS BACK THEN, WHICH IS GREAT, UNLESS YOU HAPPEN TO BE MANAGING A BASEBALL TEAM OF YOUNG PLAYERS IN THE MODERN GAME THEY DON’T RELATE TO THAT HE’S ALSO BEEN PRETTY TERRIBLE WITH HIS BULLPEN OVER THE YEARS HAVING SAID THAT, I DON’T THINK THERE’S A QUICK FIX FOR THE CARDINALS I DON’T THINK THEY’RE VERY GOOD >> SARAH? >> I DON’T KNOW IF FIRING HIM IS GOING TO CHANGE THINGS FOR THEM BUT THIS IS THE CITY THAT HAS VERY HIGH EXPECTATIONS AND LOSING OR MISSING OUT ON THE POSTSEASON THREE STRAIGHT YEARS, WHICH THEY VERY WELL MIGHT DO FOR THE FIRST TIME IN QUITE SOME TIME IS GOING TO BE PROJECTED ONTO SOMEONE WE SAW THE DEXTER FOWLER FIASCO, BUT MATHENY HAS HAD ISSUES WITH SEVERAL PEOPLE AND AS TIM MENTIONED, ISSUES WITH HIS BULLPEN MANAGEMENT HE WANTS THE DEFENSIVE SHIFT TO BE BANNED FROM BASEBALL ALTOGETHER WE GET A LOT OF HINTS THAT HE MAY BE PAST HIS TIME >> WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A FRANCHISE THAT IS SANCTIMONIOUS I DON’T FEEL BAD FOR THEM AT ALL REGARDING GETTING RID OF MIKE MATHENY WHAT HAPPENED WITH DEXTER FOWLER WAS THE G.M.
