"Alligator bit. Alligator trapper removed the 10 -and -a -half -foot gator from the property. Another bar patron, Manny Hidalgo, told the Daily Sun, he heard the man screaming from the pond area behind the bar. He went outside looking for him in the early morning darkness. Hidalgo recalled he was yelling and swimming toward the shoreline. I ran, dragged him up onto the sand. I was scared to get close to the water because it was dark out. The man went back there. You know why he went back there, don't you? To look for his arm? No, the bathroom. He wanted to go to the bathroom. He said the bathroom was full, so he went around the back of the bar. So he's lucky he only lost an arm. Yeah, no kidding. So a guy's taking a pee and a gator grabs him? Yep. I thought it was a drinking fountain. Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were a person. Ironically, had he been armed, he could have defended himself. Yes. I guess he's armed now, technically. Literally. Yikes. Gator's going to gator, huh? Yeah. Gator does what a gator does. That's kind of his spot. Yeah, yeah, for sure. They should have a sign now. Please don't pee near the gator's mouths. I think if it's two o 'clock in the morning and you're standing behind a bar taking a pee, you're not really thinking a gator's going to jump out and, don't gators sleep at night? Come on. Yeah, it's nighttime, gator. Why are you in bed? Isn't that a Charlie Bride song, don't gators sleep at night? The sun hurts my eye. Did you guys know that there is, this is true, there was at one time a New York Yankee. He was a shortstop. Would you care to guess what his name was? Eric. First name Mickey. Mantle. Mouse. Shortstop? Shortstop. Klutz. Mickey Klutz. How did he spell that? K -L -U -T -T -S. Huh. Hey Klutz, you're up. Klutz. This is from my boy Super70sports on Twitter. That's his account. It's a good follow. He has a rookie card from 1978. Paul Molitor, UL Washington, Alan Trammell. Shortstops. Even the most casual baseball fan has heard of. And then the fourth shortstop on it is Mickey Klutz. K -L -U -T -T -S. That's the third air for Klutz there. No surprise there. No surprise there. Klutz boots it again. No real surprise. So I guess Bandito's Bar will have a sign about the Gators. I guess. There's a horrible video. There's a horrible picture of the guy writhing in pain and the guy putting a tourniquet on his arm to try to save it with a cigarette dangling out of his mouth. Dammit, just hold still, Jesus. Stop your crimes. He's got a guy with his arm bitten off and he's lighting up a smoke. Look, and it's freshly lit. He went out for a smoke and he had to help somebody. I'll take care of you, pal. You're fine. He said the bathroom line was too long, so he went out back to take a pee and lost an arm. He's a good Samaritan, right? Who cares if he looks a little weird and has a cigarette in his mouth? He helped the guy. He did help him, you're right. Nope, he's a smoker and therefore that's what he gets. Less person. Okay, thank you very much, Chrissy. What's coming up? I can't put that on my Instagram. A climber falls off a ridge and lives to tell about it some 1 ,000 feet. You guys see that? And do animals like you at the zoo? We'll find out. Who asked them? That's a great question. That was what I was going to ask. I know we also have a story about sheep in New Zealand and how they relate to humans. What are those furry guys up to? We'll find out. And we have, I like to say, lassoed. Lasso, in the news, a Michigan lassoer grabbed a steer on the freeway. We'll find out what that's all about right now. Go home. There you go. Go home. Do what? And be secure and have peace of mind.

"The part of me that grew up marveling at Phil Negro and reading about reading Jim bouton and ball four and seeing Tom katia and Tim Wakefield and Joe Negro and some other guys enjoy long careers. It really bums me out the idea that the knuckleball may be extinct at the major league level. So the more we talk about our a Dickey and how great our a dickies career turnaround was, I think, the better. So I'm kind of sad to see those two go in particular. Yeah, one nice thing about the fact that the electorate has kind of come to value players more the way that our modern metrics would suggest is that we don't really see very deserving guys go one and done. Bobby rich or Lou Whitaker, Kenny Lofton, those types, where if they had stuck around or if they were to be on the ballot now it would be a very different story. So you see the rolands and the wagners and the Joneses and the hiltons, et cetera, you know, started a low level and then they have the ability to keep climbing, whereas those other very deserving strong candidates were deprived of the chance to keep climbing and maybe in their era, they wouldn't have had the chance to keep climbing anyway, but now when a guy gets knocked off the ballot in the first year, it's generally like, well, you had a nice career, but you weren't you weren't going to get it, so that's okay. One guy who is no longer on the ballot now is Jeff Kent and he also made a little late ballot run here on his last year of eligibility and he made a nice climb, but didn't end up anywhere close to where he would have had to be to get in. He was at 46.5, which actually tied Carlos Beltran in his first year, right? So I think a lot of people are kind of fitting Kent for the era committee plaque in the bane's and mcgriff tradition. So are you expecting that and how do you feel about this idea that players will get knocked off the ballot, have their ten years and not get close and then just be shoo in to this very small group of backdoor into the hall? Yeah, look, we've seen it before. We saw, you know, we saw it with Alan Trammell. We saw it with Fred mcgriff. I don't think Jeff Kent is the worst candidate to go that route. If you gave me a choice between Jeff Kent and

"That stir last year. But he is lovable in a lot of respects and he does these things on the field that make you think he is a happy go lucky fun guy. And it seems like a lot of his teammates have very nice things to say about him. But presumably not opponents he is punched in. Yeah. Yeah, and it's tricky. I think that we can maybe and we don't know that this was what was at play. I think you can understand the context that might lead someone to behavior like this without excusing it, but it is important to sort of understanding it. And I don't know if you've been DFA, maybe that, you know, shakes you and puts you on your back foot from a mood perspective. But yeah, he can't you can't bunch someone without don't punch people, first of all, we can stop at that. We don't really need to qualify, but if you're going to engage in punching in the baseball context switch, you know, some baseball players seem really motivated to do despite us thinking that it was that it's not the best way to resolve conflict. It's generally best for people to have a sense that you're coming because you can really hurt someone that way. It's good that that doesn't seem to have happened here, but don't cold cock someone, that's bad. All right, so let's get to today's topic. The Hall of Fame ballot was released today Monday and I need some help here because any day now before the end of the month, I will be getting a Hall of Fame ballot in my mailbox for the first time ever. I got the email today, notifying me that my ballot was mailed or was going to be mailed today. I am eligible for the first time. I've been a member of the baseball writers association for ten years now. So my privilege as part of that is that if I want to, I can vote on the Hall of Fame. And my inner 12 year old is pretty pumped about this. Yeah. My outer 34 year old is sort of hoping the ballot gets less in the mail somehow. So I genuinely do not know what to do. And I don't mean that I'm like kind of conflicted, but really I've made up my mind already and I just want someone to endorse my decision. I really have not made a decision and I could use some advice from you from the listeners from anyone who wants to weigh in here. And we talked a little bit about the issues with Hall of Fame voting these days last year, and episode 1640, we had a couple of philosophy professors on to talk to us about the ethics of Hall of Fame voting, but this is really real to me now. And I guess it's a year closer to being real for you. And I'm pretty conflicted here. I don't want to sound super self serious and act as if this is the weightiest moral decision anyone has ever wrestled with because I think baseball writers can be a bit precious about this at times. Not naming any names. But in the grand scheme of things, the Hall of Fame ballot doesn't matter that much. But this is a baseball podcast, so most of what we talk about doesn't matter that much. So I basically picked the worst possible time to enter the voting body. I mean, my timing is the opposite of impeccable here. It's like the Donald Glover in community meme where he walks into the room with the pizza and he's smiling and then the room is on fire. That is me work again with my first ever Hall of Fame ballot in the final year of eligibility for Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, semi Sosa and Kurt Schilling. The first year of eligibility for Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz. And of course, you have the lockout potentially contributing to a dearth of other baseball news. So December might just be like Hall of Fame all the time. That will not be the most pleasant discourse. I don't think. So this is basically like I'm the contestant on who wants to be a millionaire who's torn between two answers. And so I'm using a couple of lifelines today. I'm phoning a friend that you and I am asking the audience and I'm not going to necessarily abide by anyone else as a opinion about what I should do here, but I do value anyone else's opinion about what I should do here because this is not necessarily what I envisioned. Yeah. I thought about voting for the Hall of Fame to the extent that I ever thought I would. Like, once I was in the BBW a and I started looking ahead and said, oh, hey, you know, ten years down the road. I could potentially vote for the Hall of Fame. That's kind of cool and I can have a little impact on history here and I can join the rich tradition of baseball writers voting on the Hall of Fame and I care about baseball history. And in theory, it's sort of a fun activity to participate in. But a little less fun now and I know I'm not the only writer who shares that opinion. So basically it's like, you know, I always envisioned that this would be about picking who were the best baseball players. That's kind of always what I thought the Hall of Fame was not the museum portion, which is separate, of course, but the plaque part, the part where we decide is this guy Hall of Famer or not and he gets to have his plaque in the room. That to me was always about, well, were you one of the best baseball players ever, and it was basically only about that more or less. And now it is not only about that. And I don't know whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it is definitely different. And so when I was looking ahead to this, I was like, you know, I can be in on the next 11 or Tim raines or Larry walker. You know, I can support those candidates who maybe deserve or support than they get. And I can prevent or help prevent a future snub of an archaeon or a Bobby gricar and Alan Trammell or a Kenny Lofton someone like that. You know, I can cast my righteous vote for the saber metrically supported candidate. And now, well, I guess it would be fun to vote for Scott Roland. But beyond that, almost every legitimate candidate has some sort of controversy associated with them that makes it bigger than just baseball than just the stats. Yeah, just the numbers and just the jaws score. And so it's a different exercise and when that I feel more ambivalent about than they expected that I would. Well, perhaps we can start with a couple of sort of ideological questions that might help you to put some bumpers on this. Because I think that there are a couple of things that as a voter you need to answer for yourself and perhaps first and foremost, well, do you want to do the character stuff now? Or would you like to save it for a second question? Well, it all comes down to the character stuff, I suppose. I guess so. It depends what your other question is. I don't know. Let's start with a question that is relevant both to some returning candidates and also to some of the newcomers. So have you developed your opinion of where performance enhancing drugs factor into your ballot? Well, 'cause I think there are a couple of ways that you can go about this. I have always thought that Jay's approach, Jay jaffe's approach to this is sort of a reasonable one, right? Where he sort of bifurcates the group between those whose association with PEDs was part of what he dubs the wild west period right before there was a collectively bargained policy, the one that we know now that governs enforcement..

"Shave their armpits and stuff like that. No, no. Do I cheer 49? You look like you're 49. You're going to be 70 on November 3rd, but you look 49. Just for the record, and you do those commercials, you look like a male model up there, brother. You know, thank you. I don't know. Just I've had a long relationship with them and they're good people. So it's been it's been fun. Say, mister Evans, say, first, mister Evans. Yes. Question if I may. So after the 1980s season before 81, Fred Lin's gone, Carlton fisk is gone, and we talked to Fred lyn about that situation a few months back or about a year ago. And I just kind of wanted to know how did you feel about that situation that was going on? And some of the incredibly questionable personnel decisions the front office was making. Wow. Well, not good. I mean, how do you not tender contract before? You know, I guess, December 20th, was it or something like that? And leave them to be a free agent. I mean, that's just common sense to tender him a contract, but you know, in 75, we lost that series to the big red machine. We took away the athletics in three games. And you know, we lost that game to a single center field mate that invite Morgan. And I said, and we all said, we're gonna be in. Two or three World Series in the next four or 5 years. And we didn't, you know, we won 99 games at 78, but then lost the playoff to the Yankees, but I don't know how we didn't win more championships with that team. You don't really know. Can I have a theory too on 75, do we that if it wasn't for rice getting hurt by Verne rule, I mean, with all due respect to Cecil Cooper, they had a lot of lefties on that reds team, and he was like one for 17 in that series. If rice was in that lineup every day, I think you guys won that World Series in 6 games. Very well said. I mean, Jimmy, not even in the playoffs or World Series. You know we had won and we had Cecil Cooper and yes, still was a great defensively and offensively. So, you know, I saw yes, playing a lot of first base, and I saw yes playing a lot of left field. And. Kinda. Get back where you were. Can you move back to that other chair? What's that? We just lost you for a second there. You thought you'd change seats. Don't get no, no. I'm gonna say fine. Yeah, so that's 75 series anyway. You were saying that how do we not? How did we not win more championships with that team? Yeah. Just beyond me. I don't. And 70 billion, you know, quietly 17 games fear, you know. And Bill Lee would win a game three to two or four to three and give up 11. Yeah, he said it's perfect. He's a perfect game for him. He said a perfect game for him is ten single ten single shutout. You know, and Bill probably wasn't even smoking that much weed back then. I don't know anything about that. Now, let me ask you this. In 1978, which I thought was lineup wise was the best team. You got hit in the head. What month was that? You got hit in the spot. Oh, I got hit. I got hit by Mike Perry. And it messed me up for a good two, three years. Wow. I had interview issues and dizziness. I remember in right field, I made ten errors that year, I believe. And didn't play, I didn't play as much after I got here. But I had really a lot of issues and I remember right feel I went back and I saw like four or 5 balls and I turned around and spinning and ball went off my glove and my chest and whatever and threw it in and I said, what happened? And I said, well, I saw four or 5 balls. You know, I didn't want to do it. He goes, well, catch the one in the middle. Here's the guy that got hit in the head and he had no sympathy for me. And if I could stay level, I was, you know, if anybody ever has, I'm trying to think of the inner ear problem, but it's called something I can't believe it right now, but I for two or three years I had the issue vertigo. Vertigo. Thank you. And some people get it just, you know, they get the inner ear infection and I'll tell you what, I wouldn't wish that on my worst end. I did get hit and it kind of changed things. Won't really hold me and we started working together and it changed my career. Yeah, I got to tell you this. I got this chart. I worked on this because I'm a dried Evans fan. Always have been. 1980 to 1989. You know, Dewey, they talk about Hall of Fame stats. They say, you gotta be good for at least a decade. Well, I isolated the decade and you know it was the 80s from 80 to 89 and I put a list together of you compared to 7 Hall of Famers, okay? And I took every major category. Now this is not war and the new categories exit velocity and all this stuff. This is old school. But this shot just goes to show you where you ranked in these categories, okay? For the decade of the 80s, by the way, the other Hall of Famers are out, Brett, Ripken, Winfield, Andre Dawson, Mike Schmidt, and Eddie Murray. They're all in the Hall of Fame. You were second and that group of 8, you were second in runs third in runs batted in. Second in OBP, you were third in slugging. Your OPS had your third career home runs. You were 6th gold gloves tied for second with Dawson. Doubles second triples, fourth, and I love triples. Third in home runs, you were fourth in total bases. You were first overall of all those Hall of Famers in extra base hits for the entire major leagues during the 80s. And, you know, to me, that's a good company. It's unbelievable that they didn't give you more respect compared to all these Hall of Famers for your Hall of Fame candidacy. I think it's ridiculous and between you and Louis Tia, those are the two biggest travesties in the history of the Hall of Fame. You know what? I can't speak to that. And where you want to go Mike, but I look at Morris. I look at Alan Trammell and how could they get through the media and not voting those two guys? And that's just a small example of Alan Trammell. If you look at him and Barry Larkin in their careers, do a side by side. Very Larkin gets voted in a second year and tram doesn't go through 15 years. Their identical. The only thing that very Larkin did was he wanted MVP. And tram will hit three 50 something one year. And he didn't get the MVP. That's the only difference. I don't know why they had to come in through the veterans committee. Both of them are just, you know, Hall of Famers. And, you know, we talked about this too. Mike, I truly believe that what happened with me. I always felt like I was on the bubble offensively, but I thought my defense would carry me over. I thought, in my small way of thinking, but I really think that when I came on a ballot, you had guys McGuire and Sosa hitting 55 and 60 and.

And it was pretty neat to see coach With a the whole thing and how crazy it is. It's pretty neat to see from my perspective. My in i'll was you know having my father taking me to hang out with the coaches and players of their decades nickel silver sixties and. We hung out down crystal river in florida and that was every year and it was. It was a blessing to just go and hang out and be a part of all these different people's lives and to see the. I guess how i mean. That was a true true network and everybody network from there on out so that was another benefit. That was my in l. I mean i've benefited from those people in relationships. And the kids. That came from there the mccalls. The you know alan trammell and the shannon's and just so many great families.

I know that there's no way that it can be easy to reflect back. But i would like to ask you to go back to those days. And what was it like for somebody like you to experience this with your father and all these other amazing people. I mean it was the best it was. I mean they. They had a fishing tournament and they had their own little olympics every year. For all the kids and honestly you didn't you didn't realize how mazing it was until years later and you look back and you're like wow like you know. Dad was a part of this great thing and it's just so neat and Which which casey which makes you wonder. I'm i'm not.

And i i appreciate you letting us hear about your dad. And his experiences were so sorry to hear about his passing but We deeply appreciate you calling if you tell if you talk because for your tom He got four brothers so this follows and he always called little jimmy hall because he couldn't remember all their names you tell them jimmy hall passed on to the next saad. I certainly do that. And and all the best to you and your family. Thank you casey. What what a. What a great memory though that That must be point. Is up next in athens georgia. Hoyt go right ahead. Hey is loaned as paul. I got three brothers alcorn. Raise athens and I heard they got a bunch of five star cruise and what does eighteen this year. Yeah well hoy y- this is paul right here you're talking to You're talking to me and I i'm i'm pretty high on the dogs. I think it's it's going to start with a big win in that opening game. Great i hope they beat glen. I mean we were ever filed earlier. Yeah i think georgia's in for a a huge year and you take care of yourself and thank you very very much Jesse is up next. Hey jessie are you doing. We're doing well thank you. Yeah first time caller Joy the show so much I'm happy i finally got in. You must be a pretty popular guy I had a quick question to ask the sec. Guru himself In regards to Divisions i had the idea and correct me if i'm wrong if it was Already said but instead of doing east and west. Why doesn't the sec. Tried to. North and south with an lsu ole miss mississippi state alabama auburn georgia and florida in the south texas. Oklahoma arkansas kentucky tennessee andy in south carolina and the north that way you maintain all the the big time robberies like alabama lsu and You know texas and oklahoma once they come in and and maybe some of those old ones that some of these generations like myself and younger haven't seen in a long time. We all learned in florida and Texas and arkansas jesse i. I don't know where that what they're going to do. And i think the reason why we don't know right now is. They're still so unclear on when this is going to happen. I i think it's possible. It could happen soon but we are literally stuck in a quagmire and if it happens in a couple of years we'll have easily have more time but i agree with you i. I remember covering auburn in the late. Eighties and auburn would play florida at the end of october than they would get georgia and then alabama and nobody had a better finishing stretch and there were some amazing games between those two schools. That's gone you don't see that game. We saw it right. I think two years ago but we. We don't see that game very often anymore. Texas arkansas has to continue That is that is one of the richest rivalries of the all southwest conference. I suspect they are struggling right now. At least in theory to come up with a couple of rivals from every school. And i think they'll be the obvious ones some will get left behind though. Because if you're ever in you have to play alabama and you have to play georgia so you probably won't see florida on a regular basis right. See that's what. I was thinking. Because i i was assuming that their third Walking game would probably be lsu because that's a huge rivalry flipped. Yeah you're right. I mean auburn traditionally the to me. Those are the three big tho. Those are the games that usually determine whether you continue as the auburn kosher night. it's not mississippi's. It's what is your record. I remember that happened to gus malzahn. I saw it a couple of months ago right before the season ended. How has he done against those schools. And that's that's really how you're now the problem is if that's the case. Then what does that. What does l. is she go you Lsu has you would think lsu play alabama every year. That's one of the big boy and then lsu all has been a rivalry for ever So if that is the case then does lsu dip into an or texas. So what happens there. Well there's also arkansas the boot trophy so you're right. You're absolutely right about that. And then and then you know south carolina. I i you know besides clinton i really don't know a robbery in conference for south carolina. So where would you go for that. Yeah i mean that. Is the problem in without disparaging anyone And thank you for the call. I mean there are some schools that just don't have too many natural rivals. I mean they had that permanent game. Who is it. You have the vanderbilt game. Every year you have kentucky mississippi state or those. I know there's Yeah i mean there's a couple of games out there that they just had to be played so We're heading to a break We saw a few minutes remaining on. What's been.

"Mm hmm. So last night was the uh, Major League baseball draft, which actually watched The 1st 10 minutes of to see the Tigers pick and I can tell you have having. Yeah, It was a slow night. I I just got back from Haiti and I said, just let me to watch something totally American American exactly. And, um Came to the conclusion after watching it that I do not want and would never want the job. Of trying to pick who the draft for baseball draft. There. There were a series of images of high school kids that I swear they look, you know how you when you get older, high school kids look even younger. These kids look clearly can't fully shaved. They they look like they just as soon have a piece of bubble gum as they would a drink. And I mean, you know the soft features that kids have when in adolescence when they're not fully, you know, in the pimples, and you say I'm going to. I'm going to spend millions of dollars on this kid and the Tigers picked a pitcher. A picture. Which is the riskiest of all positions at the high school level, with the number three pick in the draft, which astonished a lot of people. I know that some local journalists have defended it. I don't think it's a good idea. I think it's way too risky. And they had a chance of getting at least a shortstop will all be at that same age, But But, you know, I got a better chance of that kid and the Red Sox went nuts when they were able to get the they were the team that went after the Tigers said, Really? You let this guy come to us? We'll take him. He was. He was projected to be number one. Lynn Henning knows a lot more about this stuff, and certainly more of the names involved in any of us. He writes, of course for the Detroit News about baseball. Um Lynn, what did you think of that selection? Thought they were going to go, Meyer and so did just about everybody else in America except the Tigers. And it wasn't Mitch. That job wasn't right there. He was, in fact, the irony as I picked them to take job, But that was with the assumption that Meyer was going to go to. The Pirates admires the shortstop that everybody's talking about who went to the Yeah. Marcella Meyer. Excuse me, the kid out of San Diego. That I thought was going to go first. I knew the Tigers wanted it, and they did if you can find it to position talent last night, but they had seen in job. And I understand why that here was one of the exceptions to the rule here was an extraordinary talent. Here was the kind of kid you probably don't see, but maybe once a decade at that age And that's where you can cut them some slack on this thing, particularly when they had A really deep cast of scouts and analytics, people. And the likes of Alan Trammell, who had seen all the short steps, including Meyer many, many, many, many times. And they were all aboard and Jackson job. And I think, Mitch, uh, in that respect, I think I've I've given them a little difference there. Well, don't they have enough pictures, though recently selected the only thing and more of a need. Forget about comparing the apple to the orange. Are they more need of position players and guys who can hit? They use a lot of high picks on pictures already. They're like 29 other teams in Major League baseball. They need a lot more of everything. Yeah, and pitching and it is. It's that old added, You heard 100 times. You never have enough of it. In this case, they really didn't have enough of it. They have taken all of their blue chips and pretty much herded them up at the top of the minor league rungs and onto the Detroit roster. And they were running a little bit, uh, an empty down there at, uh, lower level, so they they went at this draft and whether they say it's always the best guy or not. Yes, that's To some extent into 90% extent true, but they loaded up today on a lot of pitching. They did it because they were really, really getting, I think a little overly thin. And that was their concentration. Now back to the short step. They need a franchise short stuff. They need a franchise second basement. And they probably didn't get him. Certainly in that very first round. They did opt for a kid that they like a lot. In the third round, and he he could be kind of talented, although he's probably not going to play it short stuff, So we're back to that conundrum. Yeah, And I also tell our tell our audience why it's such a risk to take a picture high school pitcher at that age, you know, versus maybe Hitter or a college hit or something like that. What happens between 18 and 22? One part is physical, of course, because of what you can run into with Shoulders and lab REMS and elbows and forearms and all the things that we know can really come asunder with the pitcher's arm. So that's the first part. It's a more Risky physical process to throw a baseball. We all know that. Okay, So that's that's the first problem in the first commandment here against taking a prep picture. The other one is Many times, you'll hear Mitch them say that boy, that kid that I drafted at 18, who was throwing 97 is now throwing 87 5 years later. That can happen to because of the process, breakdowns and all of the things that again can come and glued. About the arm, which isn't wholly unnatural process to put anyone through. And so that's why teams like to stay away from it. The Tigers are no exception. The Tigers are no exception, Mitch, but here's what they concluded. At the top of this draft. This kid was so different, so special. So unique and his talents that they were going to take him over a kid like Meyer, who they think it's going to be a good player. They're not sure he's going to be on the level that Jackson job is going to be at as a picture was anywhere any other teams. Were there any other teams that we're talking about taking job? I mean, there were two teams that drafted ahead of him. If he was that special, why didn't they take them? Well, he was a Consensus Top 10 talent one team I know other than the Tigers had him at 11. And so it wasn't just Detroit's conclusion. But, uh, the thing about Meyer Mitch, with all those prep short steps where it was Jordan Lawler out of Dallas. Or the Khalil Watson kid. Are all of these guys. They all had a little bit of concern about their back. And so you talk about risk? Yeah, There's risk everywhere with a college kid. There's risk really everywhere with a high school kid. Whether the bat's going to develop whether the arm is going to go to pieces, But at the end, you follow your convictions. You follow your beliefs, and in this respect, they wanted Jackson job. So that's all right. Well, the second pick what they had to first round is the 2nd 1st Round was a college guy. He can probably end up doing it up in the majors before this. Thank God. We're going to have to leave it there because we're up against a hard news break. I want to thank you, though, for that very much. And and, uh We will get back and do a little bit more on this in the time to come. We've got to take a break here right now. Back on 7 60 wjr.

"Derby first stress in Time for your rants. Please tell us why. There is no such thing as a home run Derby jinx, and then I'll copy it and write it on Monday. The problem with the argument is it's cherry picking. It is a cherry picking argument. There are examples you can throw out there and people do it regularly. I believe David Wright was one of them. I think Ryan Howard was back in the day there, There's actually Josh Bell was one of them that I can think of. The overriding history shows that the All Star Game really doesn't do very much. Most players who do regret already had regression due to them in the home run category. So just be really careful not to buy into that. But I do understand there's this big chatter going on about showing Otani being on the roster as both the pitcher and the hitter and he's in the hormone Derby end. It's Colorado. Oh, and the altitude. I get it. You and I talked about that. It does worry me a little bit, but not to the level of panic that people make this whole home Run Derby curse. It's nonsense. It's as nonsense is the man in curse. I know. I say These things are real. It's real. I'm totally kidding. So a swing does not get messed up. Just because somebody takes, you know 50 75 swings on Monday night. I don't I don't think a swing gets messed up as we can get messed up at any time, but I don't think it's because of the home run Derby. It can it can if you allow it. But I don't care now are smart enough to not let this happen. I mean, I I don't know anyway. Ron Soto. Since I wrote my article this week about not having power has hit for a lot of power. He's now in the home run Derby. How so? The Derby crew is Otani, Who's the number one seed Peter Lanza, who won in 2019. And an L player has won it for the past five. But I don't think that means much. Trevor story. The hometown guy, Trey Mancini. Awesome. South Perez was last time I catcher was in this Matt Olsen, who you love and I love to Juan Soto and Joey Gallo, who I think is going to love it. Million of these, actually, Gullah will hit the even If he doesn't hit a million, he'll suddenly hit the 500 distance. Oh, yeah, he might hit 1 555 75 course I like the Derby better than the game because to me the Derby, they're taking it seriously. They're trying to win, but in the game, you know you're going to see the starters play. You know one about two at bat. You know the pictures get one inning or one batter. And then in the ninth inning, you know nothing against these guys. But you got, like, you know. I don't want to name any names, but you got like borderline all stars deciding the Ulster Game. It doesn't count for anything which I thought it was a joke when it on account of our home field advantage. So I like the Derby. My favorite part of the home run of the All Star Game is actually the introductions. I love this. Yes, each player and I used to love them in their own jersey. They're ruining that this year, I think, but in their own jurors because again growing up, you didn't get to see anybody from Detroit and you know it's fun. Oh, there's Alan Trammell. I never got to see him play it. You know, it's not the same right now. But, um, anyway, I'll watch because it's fine. But I think the Derby is a little bit more. I went here. I love the Derby. As a matter of fact, I'll characterize it as delightful nonsense. It is absolutely delightful. I agree. And then by the way Sunday, we should talk about this to a little bit. I wrote about it today. The futures game is on MLB network on Sunday afternoon, and then the the draft. It's right after that, and both are really important. I mean, the futures game I wrote about your Yankee guy today, the 18 year old Jason Dominguez, mainly because our editors said he's sick of you talking about the Yankees. So I wrote that I've never seen Jason Dominguez actually playing a game. Nobody has. He's only played five games in his life here. And you know he's only been in the Gulf Coast League or whatever they call it now for a week, But Dominguez is there sex with his younger brother. Is there all the top A lot of the top prospect? Sadly, rush men Spencer Torkelsson, both Seattle outfielders and Logan Gobert. There's a lot of talent in this futures game. It's really a loaded uh, bunch because they don't have one last year. So watch the futures game. I'll probably write about it from Monday and then the draft. It's all about to me where rocker and lighter go, but they're still not pitching in the majors next year, But we can talk about that. Actually, you know, I can get your opinion. Now, in this, like for dentistry purposes, a lot of leagues actually do a draft after the amateur draft. So I mean, I guess it's not like basketball or football where you have to see where they go for value. You know, in football, you know, a team with already an established running back takes another one. Well, you know, one of the dynasty right away basketball. You know, you could tell guys are going to take longer. Baseball. Everybody takes a long time. So between lighter and rocker, the Vanderbilt right handers. Do you have an opinion on who you'd rather taken a dentist? E purpose? Yeah, I do. I've been struggling with this and I'm going to start by teeing up that along with the futures game and MLB draft stuff on Sunday. They all 2025 team is coming about him coming out that day. So I'm bringing back that piece, in addition to the dynasty 300, which comes out next week, Um and there will be players in both that includes the draft that will be on that team. I have struggled a lot as to which direction I would go with later. And rocker. I feel like there's a higher ceiling to me for rocker than there is for later. I think that lighters the consistency kind of guy the he gives you an Aaron Ola or slightly better type of career. He's not quite the very best in the game. But he has an excellent excellent picture. I don't know. Maybe there is something smart to go with the safety. I like shooting for the upside lighter reminds me of Sonny Gray the size of the school. He's gonna miss a lot of bats. Yep, I don't know about. Durability is amazing. That's the spot is there but I want to see you know if he goes to Pittsburgh. That's a great home pitcher's park. So I'm going to see that, you know rocker they're saying, you know, Fenway that would affect his anyway. I In this case, I would go for pitchers over hitters, but I want to see where everybody lands because the top hitters of their high school guys are taking even longer. Anyway. Moving on doing good, though, huh, Margaret. Very good. Well, Marcello Meyer is the one that stood out to me. Based on the hit tool. I like to draft based on the hit tool, But you're right High school High school shortstop prospect. It's hard to make the case You're waiting a while. We're not gonna wait much longer for Christine to sing. It's combo meal time. Hey, it's a combo meal combo come both duty.

"I think you probably have three possibilities unless they want to use a closer in Soto. Or I should say a reliever and soda. It would, I think would be really hard to put a position player in there because Jonathan Scope has been the steadiest Akil Bedu has been the brightest and most entertaining story. But I would think you would probably go with some pitcher and if you had to pick a picture, I would probably go with KC minus And mice has been. I mean quality Start after quality Start, boy.

Does He still not look 100% to you? Well, he's now back on the injured list. As you know, I mean, he had the neck problem. So the Tigers called up may be able to oppose over left in Toledo. And they put former on the I L, um I didn't see a whole lot A. J. Hinch told us yesterday that it was Due to, um, you know, some soreness in his neck. Um, yesterday and at one point, he told the trainer Doug Peter, that he felt the twins there, and they decided knowing that he wasn't going to be available for the Cleveland series. Could've been the I'll bring up another arm. Um, I think he's looked good. It happens. You know, it happens to a lot of pictures. There's a lot of really good pictures out there who come in situations. And don't always come through. We saw with Liam Hendriks at Comerica Park against the Tigers will last time Chicago was in Detroit. It happens. Um, I think Michael former is really good in the world that AJ inches given him. It doesn't mean he's the closer and if I were a J. Hinch, I would keep doing it The way I have been doing it. There's no sense to name a closer It doesn't make any sense when he bought former in the other day in Game two, it was the right spot to bring him in because he was facing the best part of the Houston lineup. You just didn't get the job done. I would stay the way they have. My hope is that he comes back healthy after the all Star breaking in Detroit that kind of weapon in the latter inning. You know, Chef. It's been one of the one of the stories surrounding baseball across the major leagues, and it looks like we have our first, uh, substance check in which the umpires have they claimed Hector Santiago as glove this weekend.

When you look at the sticky stuff situation and how it's uh you know, it's the biggest story right now surrounding baseball. We finally have potentially our first culprit will have to wait and see. What? Santiago said It was just rising. But I mean wolf. Well, wait and see on all of this. How do you see this? How do you see this thing? Playing out? It should Major League baseball have waited until the end of the season. Instead of trying to make guys make this adjustment midway through Trevor Bauer would tell you that And I understand that. Um, but players are the thing about athletes in general, you're supposed to be able to adjust number fly. Baseball obviously saw something that it didn't like. And and I understand that It's been going on for a long time. I'd like to know why they didn that quicker, more swiftly about this type of situation, and I wish quite honestly. Baseball word police itself a little bit more. Everybody is looking for an edge in SportsCenter in life. I understand that, but at some point there is a line that is crossed. You've got pain tire for batters. You've got rosin for pitchers. What more do you need? I think it's really unfortunate you almost have you have that on field inspection, but there's really no other way to do it. Why you do it after an inning is a little puzzling. Why wouldn't you do it before the guy takes the mound? To prevent something, but this is the way baseball is going to handle it. I respect the fact that they've looked into something and they recognize there is a flaw in an unfair advantage with foreign substance. We're not saying You can't use rosin. They're saying you can't use a foreign substance. I think there needs to be a clear understanding of what that point Substances number one and number two. Think players need to start kind of policing themselves a little bit and falling upon this kind of stuff, Um, in order to make sure everybody's playing on a level playing field Tigers get ready for the first of three later on this evening, seven 11th pitch against the Cleveland Indians. You obviously kept a game on Valley Sports Detroit But when you watch the Cleveland Indians, this is a team that You know, they've been very, very interesting in the way that they have moved players that you thought would have been franchise sort of pieces for them, and their organization continues to kind of move. But somehow, some way the Cleveland Indians continue. Um, you know, kind of their reign of terror in the A L Central doesn't matter. If they don't want to pay a Francisco Lindor and he moves on to the Mets. They'll still find themselves at 41 33 as we speak, and it's just You know they're right there trailing the White Sox, but a pretty good pretty good advantage about eight or nine games over everybody else in the rest of the division. What makes Cleveland so consistently good year after year, despite all the moving pieces within their franchise? Pitching. It's as simple as that pitching. They're not a very good hitting game, especially without land door and Carlos Santana. But it's all about pitching. When you can bring in in the past, right when you've got Kluver and you've got power, and you've got Kleven during you've got Carrasco and now you've got Bieber and Scivally and police at guys like that. That's the reason they're in it. Look, you and I have talked about this before A B. It's and I was talking about this with Alan Trammell yesterday at the Ballpark, Alan Trammell said. It's really no surprise. It's always been this way in baseball. It starts with pitching, and it ends with pitching. So when people work, complaining that the tiger is spending a lot of resources, drafting guys like Casey Mayes and Alex Fado and Derek School and training for Joey wins and drafting mathematics. Well, there's a reason for it..

"Because now the team with the best record baseball has home field advantage. Assuming they win. That was all bullshit all along and it was for tv and i get it but it was a band-aid on a wound. The all star game doesn't matter like it did in the nineteen seventies and sixties and eighties. Even why because there's interleague play in free agency and so you see these mother fuckers all the time. It doesn't matter for me. It was a huge deal in nineteen eighty-four to see you know alan trammell but at by dow it's like oh the ship. The cardinals might have an interleague. They just play the tigers last week. Nobody gave a shit. I feel like any all star game in any sport now is irrelevant right like because you get to see everybody. They're everybody plays and there's free agency and so two guys that were playing for one team mike in the seventies a players associated with an organization and so it was a big deal but not the way that which is again. It's fine but you can't stop it. Change come surging down the hill and you can't stop it man so bats were baseball is and you can pick your ratings here. And their games. It ain't gonna worry if baseball ran into where. I think the nba is heading. Which is fee now. I know you're excited about phoenix. Thank you absolutely phoenix against milwaukee. Most likely play okay. So let's say you had in baseball. I don't even know who the hell's first place anywhere. dodgers are giant. Yeah i know but if it's gotta be it can't be the padres because the white sox so it's gotta be like kind of a random like let's say it's the brewers against an oak campy. The diamondbacks brewers against the as yeah. Let's say okay. Oh my god. I hear what i'm saying. Yes for the nba. It's going to be fine because you got janas. Yeah paul yeah. You got the c.

Charlie did earlier feel free one. Eight hundred eight. Seven eight play speaking to ricky warrick. Who good guest About were castle. Which is great. But i remember about that northern when i was in the town of warrick out in this little cafe and i heard this music plan and i had never heard of before i was in there for awhile and so i liked it and i wanna know what it was. It was coming out of this little. cd player. And i asked the girl who worked there. I said This band that's playing right. now do what. What's the name of this ban. And she goes so what is it. She goes like a she goes now. Attitude brag. i went oh air average rate so anyway. I later at album french band. Play the song Sexy boy off that helmet few times. You think you're one now. It's just a good song. It's like you play. Some of these people like was meant for me. I'm like what the song that. I played a thousand times on a show and now it wasn't meant training one. It's just it's just a song. One eight hundred eight seven eight play. You know one thing. I love about the baseball hall of fame. And i love a lot of it although it should be called the baseball writers association of america hall of fame. Because they're the ones that put people and for the most part. The thing i love about it is that they don't have five. Minimum like hand does with the football hall of fame. It's like what if they had all we have. Is rick tidwell division to save. Mary's college well. We only got four put him in. I mean it's ridiculous but it's the ridiculous gotta have five minimum. We had a class. Where only bruce suitor went in and in two thousand thirteen. Just the veterans committee. People went in but right now we are less than one week away from the reveal. Who who's getting into the twenty twenty one baseball hall of fame class now and there was no veterans committee meeting this year because of the coronavirus pandemic so if there are new hall of famers coming into cooperstown this summer it has to be from the vote and you have to get seventy five percent of the vote to get in now. The number of players that requirement might equal the number zero k so thanks to a twist. I don't think it would be near as big a story as the last time. There were no members but anyway just looking right now and the ballot tracker ryan tiba. Though he's sort of the guy who's the guru stuff they're old guru. Tv though and so far. Forty percent of ballots have been exposed publicly Just take a screen shot. And they posted and those forty percent right. now the highest vote-getters are curt schilling at seventy four point eight man. Does he not along in the hall of fame. Barry bonds is at seventy one point six man. Does he ever belong in the hall of fame get five. Mvp's roger clemens at seventy one percent this seven science. Roger clemens belongs then you get scott rolen at sixty five point eight no. I'm sorry. Todd helton fifty four point eight. No i'm sorry. Bonds clemons yes shilling now it outta here curt schilling rolling in hamilton great players. I remember. I'm a little more harsh when it comes the hall of fame but you can't deny the home run king and the cy young king while the hidden the hidden been denied. Not funny. Who won the most. Cy youngs not in who at the most home runs. Not in who had the most hits. We have the strikeout king. We have the guy who gave up. The most home runs in history. Why are those guys. Not in as complicated is it. But you know you could talk about some of the significant gains. We know that even though rolling and health and have no shot to win this year everyone else is less than fifty percent on the ballot. So and these said the public and the anonymous private one so far but schilling lost over seven percent from the ballot tracker to the actual results. Clements went down. Nine percent bond found ten percent so as such. It's reasonable to believe that. No one from this class is getting in and i think about the empty class and twenty thirteen and one of the major culprits was the ensuing ballot crush that had several players with upwards of fifteen worthy hall of fame candidates but the voting was capped at ten guys and not only that there are now nine players from that ballot in the hall. Jack morris lee smith. Alan trammell all got in from the veterans committee. The writers eventually did put in craig. Bijou jeff bagwell mike. Piazza rains edgar larry walker. And you'd say why did those guys have to wait so long. Well let me just read. The names again lease miss should get in. Because of the saves. jack. Morris is a great story in detroit minnesota allen travels a great story in detroit. Mike piazza for most home runs ever for a catcher gregg.

The baseball hall of fame induction ceremony is Sunday. It'll be Jack Morris, Alan Trammell Vladimir Guerrero who mentioned earlier who would be wiffle ball player. Jim Thome who'd had a can o Jim Thome e who should be on everyone's all time. Looks like you should be on your softball league team Griffin, rip Chipper Jones. And Trevor Hoffman. And we're in the funny Marty when you get to certain age, it's like the guys you watch their entire career another. Yeah, it makes me feel really old. Like what those guys are going in. The hall of fame, right? Trevor Hoffman was the I was he liked the first real closer. I guess maybe Dennis Eckersley might have been the first real closer, but Hoffman was at the guy that I remember that came in and just therm nothing but smoke. Yeah, and but then like got crafty and he's of the group. He's probably the most is numbers are crazy, but of the group. He's the one that people seem to have the most reservations about, but he was there man like there was who else were the lease? Myth lease myth hall of fame, John rocker, John rocker. John rocker lasted a second, wasn't he closer though? He was starter was who's closer goose Gossage hit Googlers. Goose was the first goose was the first one of my life that was just was like just came. Just came in throwing smoke and.

And so, yeah, if you grew up in the part of the world we did and this is the super station era.
