Kevin Pilar, Gabe Kapler, Dani Behr discussed on Paulie's Podcast


Is just being so good in this era of baseball. I agree. I mean, there's a lot of no hitters, but that's because pitchers have gotten so strong and so You know they're mastering certain pitches. And you know if you throw 98 you come back with an 82 mile hour changeup That's like that's like diving out of the zone that's really, really difficult to hit. Yeah, and mean So. All the while. You know, we have these amazing pitching performances coming at US. Web is Kind of modeling himself after Alex would moving faster in the tempo going and I think, Wait. I was going to pick it up here pretty soon, but all the while we got guys coming back from the D l we got the Grandpa Dick. He's back. And Donald mano Donnie barrels. Dani Behr was back. I love watching that kid hit. I missed him. Miss Dani Bells and by the making me somebody else I miss it is going to give a shout out of love across the country to the New York met Kevin Pilar as he took a ball of the face, which means he posted a video and have to try and find the audio about him talking about how he feels. Not bad for the pictures that hit him, But he can understand why the what the picture is going through after hitting him in the face, and it's like that is that's Kevin floor. In a nutshell. Empathy right and he was. He was not a giant for long when he was a great giant for a short amount of time, and I was pretty bummed out when they got rid of him. He's a guy that would fit in to this team. I think pretty well and I have a question about something I saw on social media on Twitter. I don't know The answer to this, Paulie. You might Shannon, you might. I saw a picture of Buster Posey, Brigham and Brandon Crawford and a couple of the Giants in the team bus, all wearing disco like seventies gear, Not he's and I'm wondering. Because disco disco Vanni Pitched What's today Thursday. He pitched on Tuesday, and it was his first game back at Cincinnati after playing for the Reds, and I'm wondering if they all dressed up in disco gear for the team bus ride to and from the ballpark. And there was nothing there was no heading or anything about the photo is just Crawford and disco gear and necklaces and stuff. And Posey and I've heard through the grapevine that disco Fine. Doesn't even like the nickname Disco. But we're gonna General I milk it all the time. How could you not you not but If that is the case, and they got dressed up in discos to four disco, Vanni AK disco that just shows how loose this team is how much fun they're having, and just go find it's his first year on the on the ball club. Shannon likes to say, and, um And they're already embracing this guy and certain you know, goofs and team gags and that scene that kind of stuff That's the sign of like a really good team that has a lot of good chemistry and you know That that that that's a good sign down that down the stretch is they say, Tony taught me this a long time ago. Shannon, I'm dead. Serious to Tony was like, Hey, when somebody when you're interviewing somebody, and somebody says something interesting, ask him a question about what he just said, Tony, I'd like to use that tactic on your own reply. If I could. I'd like you to tell me as you are proud, you know, again, like if you knew the podcast. First of all we welcome aboard. It's great having you Shannon Caylor Stone.

Tony has a pretty good baseball resume play playing college ball locally, ST Mary's in USF, So I said, I turned it right back to you. Based on what you just said. What is a memorable or or maybe even the best or prank gag baseball story you might want to share with the people listening in Oh, well, I mean, there's a lot of things I can't share just cause of the nation's getting clean it up for standards. I don't want to hear anything about a bachelorette party being involved. Certainly not. There was always there was always the the hotfoot. It's we used to do in the dugout. I think that's frowned upon now. It's trying to find now but you would put like a Yeah, yeah. You burn someone's foot. You would take out a book of matches and I'm wrapped him around a water gum. Yeah, stick them to the back of him. These spikes sit on the bench, and then you'd like the matches and then it was just a little blazer. Fire on the guys that you know That was something a lot of lot of pranks. Remember my college coach my freshman year? I'm scared, BLEEP lifts because I'm a freshman and walking in and and my coach, like one of the first practices that goes Tony. Going to share to get the left hand of curve balls, please.

Yeah, This isn't a prank or anything but my favorite anecdote of the week. It was when Brandon when Gabe Kapler came on your show, Paul talked about Brandon Crawford. You know who was a quarterback, throwing the football to him in Seattle. And breaking and breaking the ligament and his finger, and now he's had to split on you. I've got this big splint on I've been, you know, it's funny counsel's I've noticed Kapler wherein the splint like hanging out in the dugout for a couple of weeks.
