Welcome home we are wn st am 1570 tasks in Baltimore and Baltimore positive we are positively into a glorious summer period with a good baseball delicious crabcakes and the Maryland crab cake Tour presented by our friends at the Maryland lottery I’ll have the Pac Man scratch offs to give away. My goodness. We have like a whole schedule. I had to like write down everything we’re doing here. I’m wearing my state fair shirt. Yours. We talked Memorial baseball. As we get into late May, early June. We’re going to be fadeless on Friday. Luke will be joining me there before the the Tampa series. Cooper’s North will be there on Tuesday of next week. That is the fourth in Timonium. We’re gonna be promoting Fleet Week Dan Fells Point we’re gonna be doing the Maryland crabcake tour down there. All of it brought to you by our friends at Jiffy Lube multi care, as well as, as our friends at Liberty pure solutions making our water nice and clean and safe. On next Thursday. We’re going to get state fair in the morning. The Orioles play a one o’clock game next Thursday against the Blue Jays. So well. Let’s say we’re going to do a little breakfast brunch chicken and waffles thing and then maybe even stay and I’ll have a Cobb salad for lunch over to State Fair in Catonsville on the 12th will be a Coco’s pub in Lara Ville you know, I’m getting a coconut shrimp there. And I gotta reach to my co host with a que microcytic Leon and see if he’s available. That’s Wednesday, June 12. will be at slotsup and Fells Point on the 14th for Fleet Week. We won’t be in fadeless that day, I gotta let Thomas Dolby know that we’re going to be a Costas and Dundalk on the 28th. That’s before the Orioles play in New York. So we’re doing like a one to four Oriole pregame, Marilyn crabcake tour and then the 25th will be a Papist in park so there’s a mouthful. Luke Jones, how are you? It’s it’s good to be back. It’s as Keith Richards would say, and he didn’t say this the other night at MetLife Stadium but it’s good to be it’s good to be anywhere. And certainly even good to be in second place when you’re playing pretty decent baseball. When I left you do it was like sweep and then and they have lost sense and the Bradish no hitter and like I don’t even know where you want to be inside hours. Where would you like to begin this buffet of Oreo good Joan Jett squirting people things are happening around here in Baltimore.

Luke Jones  02:18

Things are happening and the Orioles are back on track. And we talked about this at the end of the Cardinals series, which was not a good series. I mean, they got swept you don’t want to get swept. But as we reminded everyone as we’ve been reminding everyone as much as I mocked the continuation of the regular season sweep play streak. We also said being sweet is also part of a baseball season even the best teams it’s going to happen at least once or twice. Right. I mean that it’s why the streak was so unique that the Orioles went all of 2023 until October without being swept but I think first and foremost, they win five in a row season high winning streak. And I’ll say this, it was good timing to play the Chicago White Sox because even with that four games sweep over the weekend at the ballpark formerly known as cummiskey. It was more difficult than a typical four game streak is I mean it really was so that’s not a knock. It’s just the nature of those games where the Orioles showed some resolve late and and comebacks. All that until Kyle Bradish was just incredible on Sunday. So it was a great weekend and then you come home on Memorial Day and they take care of business and dismantle the Boston Red Sox with Cole Irvin doing what Cole Irvin has done most of the year which is pitch well on a starting role as he’s back in the rotation with Dean Kramer now joining John means on the aisle for the time being so good weekend good holiday weekend for the Orioles again, you know you don’t want to make too much out of sweeping Steven baseball when you go out to to Chicago and sweep the White Sox but coming home and continuing a good start to their ala schedule. With the Boston Red Sox. They’ve now won what four in a row against the Red Sox to begin 24 Good weekend good five days stretch for the Orioles at a time where you know not just the sweep but also the John means injury and wondering what’s going to happen with him as he’s getting a second opinion on his elbow and Dean Kramer dealing with a triceps issue that isn’t considered you know that I don’t think they consider that dire but he’s obviously on the aisle so it’s gonna be some time. So don’t just good to win baseball games again. And I think anyone who’s followed this team now for two plus years shouldn’t be surprised by this. You know, just because they got swept by the Cardinals didn’t mean I suddenly thought the Orioles couldn’t play baseball anymore and I don’t think anyone really thought that but good to win five in a row. And to your point. The Yankees continue to play really, really good baseball throughout the month of May. But the Orioles are tied with them in the last column as they finished the holiday weekend. So I think we need to remember, for as much angst as there’s has been at times with the health of the pitching Craig Kimbrel. Going through his stretch, the offense being perceived as not being as good the last few weeks, and you know, it’s been up and down, but they are currently on a pace to be better than they were last year. For all the angst about the offense, they still lead the AFL and run scored per game. This is a really good baseball team. And that’s not to say that it isn’t devoid of some areas where they can where they can improve, but they continue to play at a really high level. And I just think the perception because the Yankees have been so good as well, that the Orioles haven’t been quite as good as they’ve been. And maybe some fans haven’t really appreciated that fully. But this is still a really good baseball team. Even if we can talk about Yeah, yeah, you’d like to add a bullpen armor to or you do wonder if they need to look to fortify the starting rotation, depending on how things are gonna shake out over the next month or two. But all those issues aside, still really good baseball team, and a 34 and 18 record through Memorial Day certainly reflects that. All

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:08

right, you can find a look at it a Baltimore, Luke and just about anywhere that this stuff travels through my head spinning on the baseball side, because I tried to think of post Memorial days in the two decades, you and I’ve known each other where we talk about these things. And I don’t really even know where to begin, like I want to say, Do you want to talk about Star Wars in the outfield where we all read Mullins, you want to do that thing? Or do you want to do How Great Thou Art rutschman Henderson thing and are they all stars? And are they a you know, MVP, like all of that. But the pitching let’s start with the pitching and work are and will unravel back into all of this because the pitching is the story. It’s going to be the complexity of all of it from the bullpen to now managing. I mean, dude, when I last checked in, we had a six man rotation. And we had the press conference said we got a six man rotation and then means get stiff. Kramer has a problem. Brad is just throwing no hitters and getting pulled making, you know, the manager and all the the analytics types go crazy. I was following that from afar in New York City over the weekend as well. Jason, Mick and Keith. Pitching and where you are with this because, boy, on the good days, he taught the hitting on and off and whatever did if they don’t hit the ball in October, they’re gonna go home. I mean, no matter how good their pitching is, because it’s been a little bit of that. But they also have this they’re losing two, three, nothing in the eighth inning, making it their way out of that the pitching thing. Burns has been as advertised. Rodriguez little up a little down here in there. But in certainly we hope he’s better this October. And whenever we witnessed that in Arlington, six months ago, seven months ago, now, he learns from those things. But that other thing you talked about, even in your 12 thoughts, to sort of lead this Red Sox series. That’s the third person. And I don’t know where we always means and you can update me on that. The Bradish thing, I think we’re always going to be a little squeamish because we spent three months, you know, all the February all in March, all of April talking about if then and then we look up and see means after four starts and say you’re on borrowed time when you have this sort of an arm issue. But the pitching. I don’t know if it’s going to be good enough to withstand the Yankees. I don’t know if they’re gonna go out and make trades. They certainly could they have so much artillery young outfielders and stuff to trade with, but the pitching, how are you feeling about the pitching right now?

Luke Jones  08:43

I mean, overall, I mean, despite the injury concerns, I’m not. I’m not in a crisis mode about it. And maybe it’s just because of the recency bias of Kyle Bradish DOING what He did on Sunday, which was look every bit as brilliant as Kyle Bradish looked at his best last year. And for me, and I noted this in my 12 Orioles thoughts through Memorial Day, which you can find at Baltimore positive.com right now that for me, it was the first time that you really could allow yourself to envision the potential big three of Corbin burns. Grayson Rodriguez, Kyle paratus, in whatever order you want to put them. Burns be number one, because you know, he’s got more experienced former Cy Young winner but that first thought that we had when the Orioles I think it was what February 1 or second whenever it was that they officially made the burns trade. Before we knew that Bradish was dealing with the UCL issue. We thought about it at that point in time we said you typically think of starting rotations in October in terms of three. Now technically, you go with four in a seven game series but you think of your big three and you think of those guys each get an opportunity to to make two starts with the off days and we set it at the time You add Corbin Burnes, to what Kyle Bradish did, which was low key one of the best pitchers in the American League last year. And what Grayson Rodriguez did over the second half of last year, understanding that October was a learning experience for everyone on this club. But the envisioning that big three pitching games for you in October, taking that, that top three of a rotation against just about anybody. Sunday was the first time I feel like you could really envision that, even though fully acknowledging October is still four months away. It’s still a lot of baseball, a lot can go wrong for the Orioles rotation, or the Yankees rotation or anyone’s rotation. Its pitching, it’s fragile. It breaks. We all understand that. And that’s why Mike Elias should continue to seek outside help outside opportunities to improve there. But again, that story is true for everyone. You know, we’ll see what Garrett Cole is gonna look like as he continues ramping things up for the Yankees, see if his elbow holds up, for example. But that, for me was the most exciting part of this weekend that Kyle Bradish looked how he looked and let’s be clear, there wasn’t even a decision you take him out after he has thrown 103 pitches through seven innings understanding He just returned less than a month ago from a UCL injury that cost him the first month cost him all of spring training. But the stuff was fantastic. And Brandon Hyde was still gushing about it on Monday morning as the Orioles returned home and we’re getting ready to play the Monday afternoon game. So look, that’s not to say that there isn’t concerned about the depth. And obviously you hope Dean Kramer, you hope it’s a 15 day situation. And you hope he’s able to come back in the way that Grayson Rodriguez came back. Not long after the minimum amount of time on the aisle. You certainly need to look for depth. That’s why it’s nice to see Corbin, who doesn’t while you is it going to blow you away with this stuff. But Corbin second on the team and endings right now. He’s he’s been this is kind of what the Orientals envisioned when they acquired him two winters ago, you know, you see

8

Nestor J. Aparicio  12:04

a really a weird mix up in the rotation for the other team. And you know that that is the that’s when you have really top notch right handers. And you mix that in? It’s what made McGregor effective. If you were on the show, he’d say that. Yeah,

Luke Jones  12:20

I mean, it’s it’s part of it. I mean, certainly you’ve got to throw strikes, you got to make your pitches, Ervin did pitch into some jams, and he pitched out of them on Monday. That’s why he was able to get through five shutout innings. And I commend him for not that five innings is this amazing accomplishment. But keep in mind, he’d been in that swing role in the bullpen the last couple of weeks. So for him to come back into the rotation and pick up basically where he left left off two and a half weeks ago, which has been you know, he’s not an ace, you know, he’s again, not going to wow you with this stuff. But he gives you innings and it gives you a really good chance to win. So they’ve needed that, you know, he’s one of those guys, that’s been an unsung hero through the first third of the season. You know, in the same way that you talk about we’ll get to Jorge Mateo in a moment and what he’s done for them in the in the in the wake of Jackson holidays, disappointment, you know, with his initial debut, but, you know, with the pitching, you’re gonna you’re always going to have concerns you’re you’re always one sore elbow one sore shoulder one sore triceps as the case for Dean Cramer away from Yeah, feeling concerned about that. But you have Cole Ervin, you know, Albert Suarez gave them a good effort. You know, I think it’s very possible we’re gonna see Cade Povich in the mix who was pitched very well at triple A. So it’s not as though as the cupboards bare. But certainly you don’t want to have any more injuries. And that’s where you’re holding your breath, especially with Kyle Bradish. Who’s

Nestor J. Aparicio  13:44

just I was gonna say with Brad as he has been so good yeah, that thing where he goes seven and he’s on it’s the start of his career, right like it was as great as he’s been on any given day was as good as ever, even with competition, but to project him out another 130 innings, 150 innings between now and game to game three, you tell me whatever it would be that he’s going to make starts every fifth sixth day for the next four and a half months and then have his best stuff in October. Look, that’s a lot of projecting. But that’s the kind of projecting it’s necessary to think about what you’re going to have in October, because at the end of the day, you might not love Cole Ervin. It is you know, at this point, but you may appreciate him more if he has to go game three to have that sort of guy later on in the year because all of these guys as we found that get thinking you’re gonna have six ready to go. And Suarez is going to be healthy and everybody in the bullpen is going to be okay and can I was going to be okay and the two left handers in the bullpen are going to be okay. And you’re going to add you know, because they’re going to add I mean they did the arrow thing they’re trying stuff or Ready, like I know, Fuji this year, but something like that’s around the corner, right? Like this is always part of the arc of the pitching and how many arms and you even mentioned Povich. I mean, you’re we’re just throwing more names into all of this Suarez was in a name. You and I were talking about maybe for 30 seconds in Sarasota the last day down there. But it’s not even June yet. And they’re really good. But this is what’s necessary to massage all of this because six starters becomes four. And then somebody’s not very good or another guy gets sore. The pitching we’re going to be talking about, you know, the ultimate thermometer on the how the team’s going to do because I think they’re going to hit the ball. I mean, two weeks ago aside when they didn’t hit for a couple days, I think they’re going to hit the ball.

Luke Jones  15:47

8

Yeah, I mean, and again, I just, I think, maybe not quite as, excuse me quite as drastically in New York, because the Yankees rotation has been that good, even without Gerrit Cole, but all the other contenders are talking about their pitching. They’re talking about their bullpen, they’re talking about do they have enough arms, they’re talking about keeping their arms healthy. They’re talking about innings limits for younger guys and all the different issues that we talked about now the last couple years with the Orioles being good again, and being a contender and being a team that is playing October once again. So look that that applies everywhere. And I don’t say that to be flippant? i It’s the exact opposite. It shows just the fragility of pitching, you know, it’s fragile. If it breaks, that’s why Yeah, Mike Elias needs to continue to be looking for opportunities. You know, it doesn’t mean you have to make a move tomorrow. But certainly, you know, I think we’re looking at it through the lens of Yes, two weeks ago was the possibility of a six man rotation. Now, who knows if John means is even going to pitch again this year? You know what, let alone what capacity it’s going to be or how effective it’s going to be? You feel great about Kyle Bradish right now? And let me say this, to answer your question is it’s still a long way from getting him to October and getting him in a healthy state and, and no elbow issues between now and then. But I’ll say this much. When Mike Elias, I think it was February 15, whatever it was announced that Kyle Bradish had a UCL sprain and was going to begin the year on the IRL. I don’t think he had too many people projecting him out Memorial Day weekend to be throwing seven no hit innings. So he’s already defied those initial expectations or pessimism or however you want to characterize it. That doesn’t mean it’s going to continue. But the further and further he gets out from that initial UCL issue and PRP injection and rehab and throwing progression and all the different steps that he went through, you feel a little more confident, right, you know,

Nestor J. Aparicio  17:45

well, when you’re strong enough and sound enough to do what he did over the weekend. That’s where you hope right?

Luke Jones  17:50

I mean, again, it doesn’t mean it’s going to continue. And again, we’ve seen this now you can’t make any assumptions about anyone. I mean, it’s just the truth. That’s why there’s such a concern that that’s why this is such this is considered an epidemic, a crisis around baseball, with the health of pitchers and how to figure this out in a big picture sense, fundamentally speaking, to try to keep guys healthier, but in the meantime, you’re trying to win games and Kyle Bradish pitching as he pitched on Sunday. Boy, I mean, Brandon Hyde said it best that that was top of the rotation stuff, you know, and that’s the Kyle Bradish we saw for most of last year. That’s why when you added Corbin burns to Bradish and Grayson Rodriguez, it was so exciting. So

Nestor J. Aparicio  18:32

were you at the game? No, no, no, you’re at the Red Sox game. I’m thinking to myself over the weekend, people I had friends at the game in Chicago texting, okay. Yeah, yeah, no, no, I,

8

Luke Jones  18:44

I’m thinking I was actually on my lawn mower.

Nestor J. Aparicio  18:47

I was like, I’m thinking to myself, where were you? Wait, because I was walking the streets in New York. And kind of quietly my wife and I took a day and just like on a Sunday, and we went away and I’m looking down on my phone and I’m looking down on my phone but more than that, I was getting texts from Chicago because my buddy Stan went to the game with his wife was a White Sox fan. And there were very few of those there apparently over the weekend as well. And eating yellowtail. And he texts me and like, they text me pictures of them under the Aparicio facade at at cummiskey. Like there’s a giant sign with Aparicio and 11 that sits it’s a Hall of Fame thing right? It’s a Hall of Honor Wait, whatever they call it their Ring of Honor ring a ball. There’s a Harold Baines up there should be a Wilbur wood, but that’s another story and we’ll get into that another day. But never Lamar Hoyt, or Ron Kittel. But she sent me pictures. And I’m thinking to myself, do you have a ticket stub thing? I’m thinking to myself if there’s a no hitter, what because you and I went through this whole no inner thing. That’s why I sort of brain fart and when were you there and I’m thinking I was gone all week and that game was in Chicago and I’m thinking you know, you get so few opportunities. Used to be sitting in a no hitter in the seventh inning on a summer day. And it’s I had a long chat with Tim Wendell, who just wrote a book, really cool book on Civil War, something you might be interested in Luke little semi fiction, but not fiction, sort of what would have happened to the civil war if this would have happened? I think in terms of baseball historian, he talked about attending to newsletters, and this is one of those days where like, everybody’s pissed at the manager. But I don’t sort of a memorable effort, you know, all the way around. But I wonder stand what added tickets now? I bet he didn’t. I bet it’s digital.

Luke Jones  20:35

Yeah. And, look, I mean, White Sox fans may have been ticked at the manager. But it wasn’t even a decision. I mean, you take them out in that spot. I mean, you’re talking about if Kyle Bradish didn’t have the UCL issue. I mean, you’re still, you’re still talking about realistically speaking. And if you saw him in the seventh inning, I know you you weren’t in front of the TV for this game. But he was laboring at the end. I mean, you could tell he was missing up. You could tell it was becoming more of a struggle for him. And what he had 103 pitches, whatever it was, are you ever

Nestor J. Aparicio  21:06

8

going to send the WNS T text because I was wondering that at that moment, I literally was in I was in a sports bar when it was going on in like a by the garden. And to be really fair, the Rangers were playing game three of the Stanley Cup against against Florida. And I was in a ranger bar. I mean, dude, it was they were when for 3d gave up the tying goal, they went to overtime. So I’m watching the Orioles on my phone as it’s happening at the time. So everything you’re telling me about it is, I mean, you’re there with the game or you’re not I guess, and I wasn’t going to app it out and do all that nonsense from Manhattan. But, you know, there is a point where like, you’re watching it, and you’re like, do we jinx it? You know, I would put the game on if you’re not well, you know, because I get the Chenxi thing, you know, right,

Luke Jones  21:58

right. No, it wasn’t anything about that. So I was conflicted. Typically in the past where there’s been like, John means three years ago, you know, typically, my my thought on this new and I’ve scrimmage this before. I’ve typically thought through seven innings, you send it out. I was conflicted to do it there. Because I knew Kyle Bradish was done. I knew he wasn’t coming back out. For the eight it was very evident. 103 pitches, not that far removed from UCL issues. Big picture in

Nestor J. Aparicio  22:27

mind, like up when I do the shoot interzone the WNS T tech service, what I

Luke Jones  22:32

was what I was going to do, knowing that someone else is coming in for the eighth inning, if Danny coulomb tossed the score or a hitless eight, I was going to send it out and say, Kyle Bradish, Danny coulomb combine eight no hit innings in Chicago, because I wanted people to have the opportunity to see that the ninth in progress, even if it was combined, but I felt I felt it was kind of a false advertising a little bit to say Kyle Bradish, seven no hit innings knowing he was coming out of the game right at that point. So people turn it on. And they say, Well, wait, I just got this text from MSDN and practices out of the gate. So I was a little conflicted there. So

8

Nestor J. Aparicio  23:12

can I be an old guy and tell you because sometimes you like sitting on my lap and like I let my great beer come in and tell you a little story. So when I started at the news, American in 1984, and 85. So this is we barely had computers, right. But we had a little teletype in the corner. That was the AP, Associated Press, urgent bulletin. And due to eight paper, the ones with the little dots on the corner, where it ripped off the dotnet, whatever it was dot matrix, and it just went through. And if you’re old enough, you know what I’m talking about with that. And it would spit out the urgent thing, right? And sometimes, it wasn’t so urgent in a pinch this off and killed paper, right? It would just give us a race result or something. We’re like, Stop, you know, but it was so like any time, you know, pick anybody Mike Torres is throwing a no hitter in seventh inning and Cleveland, it would pop up and it would say urgent in progress. You know, it’s a in progress. And then that became computers when I got to the sun in 1986 to 92. And I was the guy who did the scoreboard page every night. So this would be an all night thing that if somebody was throwing a no hitter in Seattle at 11:45pm, it would say in progress. And it was always sort of seven thinning. You have to get through seven, that’s when the thing would say somebody’s got to know it or through seven. I don’t know that as a young person who worked in the sports department in a baseball only town. We didn’t have football around here for you young kids. We had to fight for the football team. We had to fight for the owner to sit on the porch to run for me about questions about Pacific money. So I go back to all of this 40 years ago, but the urgent Part Two, you know, there’s nothing in a football game that could be a perfect game. There’s nothing in basketball. You know, Michael Jordan might score 60 tonight or, you know, nobody’s gonna approach Well, certainly nobody’s going to catch omaggio tonight. So you know, the urgent part of no hitters and getting to the seventh or eighth inning I it’s right there with the Northern Lights for me.

Luke Jones  25:26

Yeah, and like I said, if that had been Bradish had seven no hit innings and he was at at pitches, texts would have gone out after the seventh inning, but knowing he was coming out I almost felt like I didn’t want to be Vince McMahon advertising a main event when Monday night rolls ending in three minutes and you know, it’s going to be not legit. So that’s what I said, Okay, I’m gonna wait till the eighth. And if if the Orioles have a combined no hitter through eight, I will send it out at that point. Because I know Brad is gonna be out of the game. So I don’t want to send it out. And then people are like, they just took about so why why why the why that why the urgency about it. So it was a great outing. It was the right decision to take them out. You won’t convince me otherwise. This is a this was a big picture decision rather than being worried about seeing if Kyle Bratton,

Nestor J. Aparicio  26:16

you already have means in Kramer Exactly. That’s

Luke Jones  26:19

8

what I’m saying. It wasn’t even a decision in that regard. But it was great to see him throw the way that he did. He had 11 strikeouts for walks. And like I said, if you’re watching the game, you could see in the seventh inning, he was emptying the tank at that point. I mean, he was held his velocity very well. I mean, no, no questions about that. I mean, we’ve said it since he returned in early May. Even the starts where you know, he didn’t get very deep in the pitch count got to him. I think if you’ve watched Kyle Bradish stuff wise, I think you’ve been pretty come away pretty impressed overall before even before Sunday’s outing. So look, pitching will continue to be talked about talked about. The bullpen Absolutely. Needs more, even though Craig Kimbrough is has righted himself, you know, I think he’s up to seven outings now. No runs, no hits, no walks allowed. So that’s good to see. But you know, they need a they need another high end, legitimate, closer, capable, capable arm in their bullpen if not two of them, quite frankly. But again, lots of teams are saying that they’re winning games. This is a good baseball team. They’re on pace to win more games than they did last

Nestor J. Aparicio  27:27

year. And ponies Yankees games set up to be fun. Right? Well, no doubt.

Luke Jones  27:31

I mean, and that’s what I said. I mean, this has the potential to be such an end. The Orioles did this with the rays last September, but the rays don’t have the same cachet. We know that. I mean, the rays would tell you that even so, the idea of a season long pennant race with the Bronx bombers, and knowing how well the Yankees are playing but the Orioles Hey, they’re right. They’re tied in the last column. Yankees played a few more games. That’s a difference right now. But the idea of that kind of a summer and that kind of a September. I mean, that’s fun. It’s really fun. So good weekend for the Orioles. Good Memorial Day for the Orioles. A five game winning streak on the heels of being swept off correcting themselves. Still issues still concerns. Those are fair, you know, I’m not gonna sit here and say everything is perfect. It’s not. But that same is true of everyone. And in the meantime, Oreo is winning a lot of games. And yeah, we’ll get to the offense and Kyle sours and the outfield and all that as well. But on the pitching side. I mean, the headline from the weekend was Kyle Bradish I mean, that was absolutely fantastic on Sunday.

Nestor J. Aparicio  28:37

Yeah, I’m just going through my pictures at Stanford Blonsky. My Dundalk compatriot who’s been on the show before he’s been on the crabcake towards me. One of my childhood friends yeah, he sent me through there was like nobody the game right like he sent him a picture of like his seat on the first base line and it looks like 3200 in the south side eaten a low taste this weekend. I mean, so we see what’s happening in the crowd, you know, coming out for mustard. Did you get a mustard or ketchup or a relish? Which one did you get?

8

Luke Jones  29:05

I did not get a t shirt on Monday. I mean, sometimes they’ll give the media the giveaway sometimes not and maybe we’ll get get them later in the week.

Nestor J. Aparicio  29:12

You own a ketchup mush.

Luke Jones  29:14

I think I have a ketchup t shirt from a couple years ago. I mean it

Nestor J. Aparicio  29:18
