i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib e devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor
11:33 pm
there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto ve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.

we start things off with the mets. the neil walker is back in the lineup, but not for long. his wife will birth of their first child, and he will be there. the giants' starter with 6 no-hit inning, and the only runner he allowed was a walk, and that's against noah syndergaard, and who by the way was going toe-to-toe, and 4, only allowing 2 hits, striking out 6, and more importantly,
11:44 pm
the mets get to the shark, and granderson is only hitting .167 this month, and of course he's the guy who will break up the no hitter with the leadoff double. with the no-no gone, it was up to sees -- cespedes. he launches a 2-run jack, and syndergaard would not let it happen to him. it was his best start of the season, 8 shutout innings, get the chance to complete his first game of the career? of his career? and with 98 pitches, terry collins turned to his 41st save, and the mets are 4.5 back of the wild card race, and this next week will be pivotal for
11:45 pm
the teams ahead of them. with all the talk of the farm system and the young bats, they could have a few good arms in it as well. last night lewis pitched, but chad green with the 1.50 e.r.a. in 6 outings, and today he allowed 1 run and struck out 5, and how about ellsbury, and he's owned about oh, $89.5 million over the next 4 seasons, and he's starting to show the yankee handed him a big contract. a leaping grab, robbing albert pujols instead of the 2-run jack, and that ends the inning. the tieing run at 2nd, and gary sanchez walked, and gregorius strikes out. the weak grounder kills the rally. the runners in striking position, and sanchez proves he's got a gun.
11:46 pm
thrown out 67%. the yankees' bats fall silent, and they are shut out. they are 4 back of the wild card race. well, the rio olympics have wrapped up with the united states dominating the medal count. the americans collected 121 total medals, and 51 more than their closest competitor. the final won by team basketball who blew out serbia. luis steinbrenner has opened an agent academy to teach the next generation. >> reporter: athletes do have as role models, a sense of responsibility to send a message out into the world.
11:47 pm
taking a political stance versus the negativity that could come on the backside of it. >> athletes are citizens, and part of the problem, you prepare them for the second career, and that's self- absorption, and the concept they are somehow removed. i like the fact they take stances on social issues, and you saw a number of athletes took the position that whether having issues with citizens or whether it's people attacking the police, both things are equally wrong, and you saw a series of people speak, and you saw even michael jordan give money, and you saw carmelo anthony go ahead and speak at the convocation, and i think that's a good way to develop a concept of where you're going and second career and how you
11:48 pm
athletic ones. i want to ask you about social media. this is something that was obviously not around back when you started with steve barkowski as your first client. social media certainly changed the ability for individuals to connect with athletes, and it's also changed what an athlete is saying more or less. how difficult -- how big of a challenge is the responsibility of being able to control social media with your players? >> the opportunity is that branding the ability to recognize someone's name as opposed to anyone else, and they have a positive aspect of it, and it comes from twitter and instagram and all the ways in which someone can use it, so if they do it well, it's a real positive. if they are controversial or inappropriate, it becomes a real difficult situation, so we
11:49 pm
talk through with them the fact that every thought that comes into their head does not need to be expressed. that every way they express themselves with their closest friend isn't the way they need to tweet. and so it needs to be judiciously and cautiously approached. >> a i think a lot of us like to watch the tv show ballers because of the fun we see of what the athletes' lives are like outside of their arena f athlete has asked of you or maybe a potential client that you didn't honor? >> a mother once asked me not to sign the contract until she got the actual phone that the athlete was drafted on in new york on draft day, the one they got picked up. other ones want a certain numeral on the field, and one athlete got very angry at me because i told him the deal was done, and he was sitting at training camp, and i said no,
11:50 pm
me until 3 weeks of training camp had passed. i hate training camp. >> oh my goodness, well the rookies are better trained than ever before because they are signing early and slotted into the positions because of the cba. you recently penned an article about the changes to the collective bargaining agreement in 2011, and you noted that the first year of the cba, 17 players had their fully guaranteed, which is really an anomaly in the nfl. major league baseball players get all contracts guaranteed, but a football player could be injured in the first year, and it's all null and void. is the guaranteed contract really the only way the nfl players can make sure they are going to get paid for the work they do? >> the difference between the
11:51 pm
hockey. the contracts, and the yearly salaries in a 5-year package have always been guaranteed for skill. if they are cut, they get the money, and for injury, if they suffer career-ending injury, they get the money. that never happened in football until the last 5 years, and in football there are bonus things, and the first player drafted got an 18 million- dollar signing bonus, but the salaries were never guarante and this year the first 20 players got 4 full years of guarantees as rookies, and our client got 3 full years, and then a third of the fourth year, and it kept going after that, and in the second round, the first and second years got guaranteed, and this is a big break through for players, and it goes against 8 years of football tradition, and it will
11:52 pm
the cba, it's well known, the collective bargaining agreement was fantastic for owners, nfl, and terrible for the players. is there a point where they recognize this, and they may strike before the cba is up in 2021? >> i don't think. think. so -- think so. it will come up again in 2011. prior to that, they were getting 55% of the gross, and owners 45%, and now negotiations finished in 20:11, magically the owners were getting 53% and the players got 47%. when the owners negotiate as a collective, they are billionaires, and they stand together really strongly, and the players have a difficult time achieving some of the goals, and what they wanted was to redistribute money to proven productive starters, and they got that, and they also got benefits and the benefit packages that were pretty good,
11:53 pm
