Tiki And Tierney Weekly Rewind 4/18-4/22

PETER GAMMONS – 4/18/16
MLB Network analyst

“The Mets’ pitching is yet to get into gear per se. Obviously Syndergaard has been great and (Steven) Matz was great yesterday (in a 6-0 win over the Indians), but they’ll get there. The one thing you have to look at and understand is Washington is really good, so it’s going to be a very intriguing race for the year.”

BOBBY MARKS – 4/18/16
Former NBA executive

“That’s a big reason he has such a manageable contract – because of the ankle issues and everything. I would see (how he feels during the) shoot-around, and if there’s any inclination that it’s going to be something that could hurt him in the long run, even if it’s tonight, I would sit him out. I think that home crowd and how that roster is built (is enough against Houston). I’m not a huge fan of the Rockets. I think they’re an undisciplined team. I think what we saw in the regular season carried over. I think even without Curry on the court, I think they have enough with (Draymond) Green and (Klay) Thompson. You could put Shaun Livingston at the point guard, you’ve got (Andrew) Bogut and (Andre) Iguodala – there’s enough complementary pieces there.”

“But it was an impossible situation created by I’m-not-sure-who when the player got in the mind he was worth (a certain) amount of money. He’s a smart guy. He can figure this stuff out himself, but it should have been tempered (and his agent should have) immediately (said), ‘Fitz, you’re not going to get the money (you want). It’s not there, so just get it out of your mind right now.’ That should have been grilled into his head right away – and he probably would have fired the agent if he said it to him.”

“The pieces, you can look at, and say they’re all there. Certainly the way Blake Griffin has come back and (played) with a vengeance to make up for the hand he broke punching someone in the organization – I still like saying that. He punched someone in the organization and missed time because he punched someone in the organization. I’ve never equated that with championship-caliber basketball.”

JON ANIK – 4/20/16
Fox Sports 1 UFC announcer

“I think he made north of $5 million for his most recent fight against Nate Diaz, but all of this is informed speculation. There had been reports and rumors about a potential divide between the UFC and Conor McGregor. I guess that has some legs when you see the relationship deteriorate to this extent to lose Conor in a main event, UFC 200. But he signed a contract, and I think he needs to honor that.”

IKE REESE – 4/21/16
94 WIP Mike and Ike co-host

“He’ll say all the right things and he’ll try to go out there and put up 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns to make the Eagles squirm a little bit about making a decision on whether or not you give him up – a known commodity – versus a guy that played at Division II for the 2017 season. That’s what I’m sitting back and watching this year. What if Sam Bradford takes us to the playoffs this year? Then what are we going to do? I don’t think that’s going to happen, but I’m just saying: stranger things have happened.”

RANDY COUTURE – 4/21/16
UFC legend

“We were largely misunderstood. My first UFC was UFC 13 and they held the weigh-ins at the lobby at the Holiday Inn at Augusta, Georgia. I had never seen the guy I was going to find that night until he stepped on the scale in the lobby.”

Entertainment Tonight co-host

“There might be a night where he’s just like, ‘I’m going to do James Brown.’ And then there might be another night where he’s like, ‘I’m going to do all jazz.’ And you were like, ‘Whoa.’ He moved in and out of these genres so easy and he always wanted to get better. He loved celebrating and he knew he pushed the envelope with his music. When you’ve been around someone and you know they are at the top of their field – they’re a genius – you walk away and you say, ‘I’ve got work to do. I clearly don’t work hard enough.’”

FRANK GARCIA – 4/22/16
Panthers analyst

“He’s given away all of his leverage when it comes to negotiations. I think that his time’s done here. I think he’s going to get, really with the open market and the need for cornerbacks, (close to what he wants). Whether we think or you think or I think or anybody thinks that he’s a top-tier cornerback, a top-five guy, guys are getting that type of money on the open market when you’re on of the best – and he was an All-Pro, so he’s going to get that type of money. It’s just not going to be here with the Panthers.”
