The Doug Gottlieb Show Weekly Rewind 4/18-4/22

LES SNEAD – 4/18/16
Rams GM

“Over the next 10 days, yes, we will cross some Ts, dot some Is and figure out the final period to the sentence. I think a lot of the energy over the next 10 days will be spent on Rounds 4 and 6 – that’s where we have four picks – and trying to make the most out of that, along with college free agency. A big percentage of the work and analysis going into making this move is already done.”

“If they wanted to make changes to that roster, they have guys that have great trade value. They could alter the roster in significant ways if they chose to do that. If they don’t win a championship or get dominated against the Warriors or San Antonio, there could be changes made. If they played one of those teams great and got to a Game 6 or 7, maybe they keep this thing together. The playoffs are going to dictate that.”

“Scott Brooks coached him in Oklahoma City. He was a sixth man then. He was sort of third fiddle to (Kevin) Durant and (Russell) Westbrook, so a little different scenario. Now he’s the lead guy in Houston and that takes on a whole different level of responsibility. So I think he’s too young and it’s too early in his career to say that (he’ll never win anything). If you want to put like a Stephon Marbury label on him, I think that’s too extreme. But look, it’s fair to say he’s warranting the criticism he receives.”

UFC light heavyweight contender

“I don’t think anyone’s ever come close to that. I think Anderson Silva’s maybe beaten three or four world champions, but on paper, my resume speaks for itself, so it allows me to not compare myself because of what I’m doing.”

“There’s no doubt that over the past six months or so, there has been some tension at times between the UFC and Conor McGregor, but I’m pretty confident in saying to you guys that this has nothing to do with money. He had already agreed to the fight. (The UFC) actually didn’t want to do the rematch with Nate Diaz, and because (McGregor has) been such a team player and a soldier and generated so much money for them, they relented and gave him the fight he wanted at UFC 200. They didn’t think, like many others, that this fight made a lot of sense. So that suggested, to me, that they were on pretty good terms as of late.”

Orioles reliever

“We were like the left tackle: Nobody paid attention until the quarterback’s head is laying on the ground and he’s in the paper for letting up the sack. We only get in the paper if we blow a game. But in the past few years, the bullpen dynamic has changed. They’ve become such an important part of the team. They’ve done a great job of assembling a variety of arms here. We’ve been pretty steady since 2012, having one of the top units in the league. We always put together a good seven.”

“Well, he didn’t realize that I had taken screen captures and that somebody had sent me a screen capture from a phone. I think the only reason that Schilling got canned is we had the evidence. You can’t deny it.”
