Governing Bodies Want to Stop Athletes From Betting On Other Sports
"This past week or so, you're banning athletes from betting on other sports? I mean, okay, at what point have we taken this too far? And we can even open this up to the stupid, it's just stupidity of Pete Rose being kept out of the Hall of Fame, okay? Really? The P rose conversation is definitely one to have. Doug, I don't know about you, but I love losing $200 on a Sunday. And for winning $200, I'm not sure about you, but I can arrange for $200 to come to my account everywhere, bud. Listen, I am, I love gambling. I do. I am the kind of person that's like, maybe you should watch him 'cause he might get addicted to it. No, but I do. I really enjoy it so much. And when DraftKings hit because he hit New Jersey first, we were the first to get legal legal gambling. You know how you can thank for that? Chris Christie. I know of all the people. It was like his lasting legacy. He was like, I'm gonna destroy New Jersey for a little bit, but before I finish, here's gambling. No, but in all seriousness, the idea that an athlete can't gamble on another sport, which and I'm sorry, I didn't see this posted anywhere, so I don't know. I didn't know that so they're saying like LeBron James couldn't bet on a Dallas Cowboys game. Is that what they're saying? Yeah, it's something that was. So coach, man. It was coach banned for bedding and it's like, but I mean, the whole thing. Just take it over and say, why is it? I mean, look, I can understand. At least at least the monumental argument. I can understand how you keep Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire and some of these guys out of the baseball Hall of Fame. Okay, if you want to, I mean, hypocritically, but if you want to proclaim that they steroids or whatever. But okay, Pete Rose didn't even bet on. His own games. I mean, he bet on baseball, but it wasn't his own games.

"Thank you very much for that. I had a front row seat for that. How you doing? Because I owned Carmelo Martinez. And when that ball was hit, and I'm watching it go towards bragging. I'm going, oh my God, if that goes over the beds, this is gonna get ugly. And you know, he reached up, he grabbed it and the rest is history, but I'm in the bullpen warming up and you know the bullpens where they were. Yes. They're right next to reveal. So, you know, having to sit there and watch that close and know that loot didn't bring me in to face Carmelo, that that made my heart sake a little bit, but I knew Randy after he got that out. He was fine. Yes. And indeed, they were and we know what happened in the 1990 World Series.

"And I know this, it's not actually connected to Major League Baseball. No, it's not. And that's why when I glad you brought this up because when people say that he's banned from Major League Baseball, well, that has nothing to do with a national baseball Hall of Fame that's not officially connected with Major League Baseball, putting him in their hall has nothing to do with it whatsoever. Again, comes down to a ridiculous archaic, if I can say arcane, morality clause. And if you want to tell the story of baseball, professional baseball, which obviously Major League Baseball is maybe 95% of that, what have you. Then go ahead and include a description of their entire career good and bad and let it be and be done with this stupid hypocritical approach of not allowing certain players in and allowing other players in when the whole group of them have done something unsavory toward the sport. Let me just bring this up and I know people will be like, well, what does this have to do with the performance and drugs? What if Justin Verlander one day is up for the Hall of Fame? Are we going to bring up 2017 what they did with the Astros? Because that's where the egregious that's ever hit this game. Yet their World Series stands. They enjoy wearing these rings around a lot of them are really arrogant in the way that they talk about it. Like we did nothing wrong. So I kind of correlate that to some of these performance enhancing drug guys. They're fine. The records are still standing, which infuriates me. You know, you had a commissioner that could have balanced the book, so to speak. And didn't. And at the same time, now you're going to have Justin Verlander up for the Hall of Fame, one of his greatest years traded in the middle of that year. If they don't get Verlander, they don't win that championship. I truly believe that. And so now he's going to be he's going to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, yet they probably won't even bring that up. They'll be like, just like, you know what? To me, you can't throw history under the rug. You can't hide it. And, you know, having played in the era of and it's not just the steroids. It's not just the aged the amphetamines were worse. Worse. Trust me when I say this. And to make it seem like that didn't even happen. That to me just shows you the people don't know what they're talking about. So if you want the complete history, all of the and the amphetamines go back to the 40s and 50s. Absolutely. Even Hank Aaron acknowledged this when he was kind of rust his soul when he was alive. He acknowledged the fact that everybody was doing them. Yeah. And so for guys to be more focused, more alert, being able to run faster and work out and do whatever they're doing, you know, the use of a drug, you know, to me, it's like, just stop. Like, you just said, you know, stop put the morality, put the right people in there that belong in there because it still is a very difficult Hall of Fame to get into. You know, I'm still bitter about Ron Santo. He was putting posthumously. Buck O'Neal put in posthumously. There's a bunch of other guys that deserve to be in the whole thing. Listen, we haven't talked about mania Ramirez yet. We haven't talked about Gary Sheffield, Jimmy Ron and a rod shilling, all these guys belong to be in the Hall of Fame, but if you want to.

"And there is no literal asterisk, right? The record book, he is the all time home run king. He is the single season home run king, but yeah, I just went to visit the ball in cooperstown a few weeks ago. And yeah, you know, the leather is carved out in the shape of an asterisk. And you know, we can say that there are no official asterisks in baseball, but they're there. They exist. Barry Bonds career basically ended there, right? I mean, what happened after he hits this home run? After he hits the home run, he hits a few more home runs. He ends up at 7 62 and the 2007 season ends. And by the way, he's 43 years old at this point, and he's still phenomenal. The advanced numbers, the things he did at that age, it's incredible, but nobody wanted him. He does not get re signed by the Giants, nobody else wants him. He doesn't retire. He still wants to play he's like, look what I can still do. But he is basically at that point, you know, persona non grata and baseball and he doesn't officially retire until a couple of years later. When it's clear that he's not coming back, but I'm not so sure that if you gave Barry Bonds a bat today and put him at home plate that he would seriously. He wouldn't get a walker home run. So the question Jeremy is then how a game that turns such a blind eye to steroids? Can hold them against the most feared hitter who ever lived. After the break. Getting paid up to two days early with direct deposit is another reason banking with Capital One is one of the easiest decisions in the history of decisions, even easier than decided to listen to another episode of your favorite podcast. And with no fees or minimums on checking and savings accounts, is it even a decision? That is banking reimagined. What's in your wallet? Terms applies, see Capital One dot com slash bank, Capital One NA, member FDIC. So Jeremy, you said at the very top here that this is the final year that Barry Bonds is eligible to be voted into the Hall of Fame by the baseball writers. So I just want to understand here how this actually all works. Like what is the actual math look like with respect to bonds actually getting elected? Well, there were 401 Hall of Fame voters last year. And we think they're going to be within two or three of that figure this year. And then so basically, you got to get 300. Last year, Barry Bonds got 248 votes. So bonds was 52 or 53 shy. Still a big margin shy of the required threshold. The question is this year knowing it's his last chance. Will the writers and they get to vote for up to ten players each year? Will there be an additional 50 votes or so for Barry Bonds that we're not there last year? You would say to yourself, well, what could have possibly changed? And we should be clear, if he doesn't get it now, it doesn't mean that he's never going to be in the Hall of Fame. But it means that his candidacy would be considered at some point by one of the veterans committees. But this is always the first best option to get it. Well, and look, I'm pulling up the Hall of Fame website on my computer here. And it's staggering just the degree to which this place is not merely. I mean, it's not a museum, so to speak. It's also a place that casts moral judgments, Jeremy. That way, there is this element of it as a church. And so I'll read to you from the website. The famous clause. Voting shall be based upon the player's record playing ability integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the teams on which the player played. They're in lies. It seems the obstacle that Barry Bonds has been unable to surmount. Exactly. And they call it the character clause. And, you know, here's the interesting thing, right? In the entire history of the game, Pablo before the steroid zero. There are only two players who have been excluded from the Hall of Fame because they don't measure up with the character clause. Two players ever, all right, that's Joe Jackson. And Pete Rose. And here's the interesting thing too about that. Neither of them is eligible for the Hall of Fame. They're both on the ineligible list. So it's not as if the writers ever had a chance to vote for them anyway. The character clause talks about sportsmanship, integrity, all these things, but nobody has ever applied them critically except to steroids users and people suspected of using steroids. And, you know, a fair question to be asked is, well, why is this different than other forms of cheating? What is character mean? We have racists in the Hall of Fame. We have people who worked very hard to keep African American players out of Major League Baseball for decades there in the Hall of Fame. They passed the character test, but the people associated with steroids don't. So, you know, when you say character clause as I did in numerous interviews over the course of the last couple of months to people inside baseball, some laugh. Most laugh or scoff, or chuckle because it has been applied so sparingly and inconsistently through baseball's history, but now in this era when there are players whose numbers would otherwise put them in the Hall of Fame. Suddenly, the character clause has been invoked. It does seem Jeremy. Like the most mortal sin you can commit in baseball is against the game itself, right? That's the logic here about why bonds is this special case, but I wonder then, why is it that even that Pablo, I would take exception to only in the sense that right? We're talking about it now. It's like, here is this red line, right? This steroids line, but where do we draw it? And for a long time, there were steroids used in the game rampant steroids use in the game. There was no testing. It was officially against the rules. It was countenanced, if not outright encouraged, and baseball has, you know, has a lot to answer for institutionally for the era, right? Yes. And yet, you know, this is, this is the one red line that has been drawn by the writers. Again, Joe Jackson and Pete Rose, they are literally the only two players who have been excluded from the Hall of Fame because of the character clause before this issue, but it's not really the character clause because they were never eligible for the writers to vote upon. So I get Jeremy how Pete Rose and shoeless Joe Jackson are precluded from the deliberations that bonds has been undergoing for years and years now because of their involvement with gambling in specific. Correct. But with bonds and steroids like where does that red line get drawn? Because without naming names here, there are guys already in the Hall of Fame who have had heavy, heavy suspicion around them. Yeah. That's what's so problematic here, right? And this is something that we heard over and over again from people who vote for the.

He has won three MVP awards, 8 gold gloves. He is the founding and only member of the 400 homers 400 stolen base club. This is a guy who will have his place on Mount Olympus in cooperstown. Whenever he wants it. But then 1998, that does seem to be the turning point. What happens then? Well, in 1998, Pablo, as you remember, because you're not that young. We get the Mark McGuire Sammy Sosa home run chase. Two.

"That was Barry Bonds. Back in 2006, as he dared threaten baseball's most sacred milestone. Hank Aaron's career home run record. A record that would have been the crowning achievement for any Hall of Famer. But while Barry Bonds is many things, like arguably the greatest player of all time. He is not a Hall of Famer. Still. So today, ahead of the E 60 documentary debuting this Sunday Jeremy shaft explains how and why bonds remains on the outside, looking in. And what that says about the rest of us. I'm Pablo taure. It's Friday, November 5th. This. Is ESPN daily. Jeremy shap, look, we know that there has been no hitter like Barry Bonds, right? Like we know this. This is established fact. 73 home runs, the single season record, 762 career home runs, like it doesn't look like anybody's gonna touch those anytime soon. Why are we taking a look back at his career right now? Because this is his last year on the writer's ballot. This is the last time the writers get a chance to select Barry Bonds or reject Barry Bonds for the Hall of Fame. So the way the process works is you play your career out, a Major League Baseball, and then 5 years after you play your final game, you become eligible for the first time on the writer's ballot. Now it used to be that you spent 15 years on the writers ballot and you had to maintain a certain percentage each year to stay on the ballot. I think it was 5%. They've actually reduced the amount of time that you stay on the ballot. In some say, this is specifically to keep people from the steroid zero like bonds out of the Hall of Fame. So now it's ten years. And soon we'll know whether he has achieved the necessary 75% threshold for enshrinement. I mean, Jeremy, it does, it does behoove us to step back here for a second, just acknowledge the guy who is the greatest offensive player of all time. He's not in the Hall of Fame, man. This is a paradox unlike any other. No, I mean, you could very well make the case that Barry Bonds is the greatest baseball player who has ever lived. And when you talk to people who were in baseball during the bond zero, let's call it that. He came up in 1986, his last season was the 2007 season. Almost everyone says Barry Bonds is the greatest player of his era. He's the greatest player they saw. The numbers don't lie. The numbers are eye popping mind boggling, but he's not in the Hall of Fame because quite simply he is associated with steroids. And associated is almost euphemistic way of putting it Barry Bonds testified under oath that he used steroids. He says he had been told that what he was taking were not steroids. Many people have testified otherwise that he did know. But the fact is the Barry Bonds did testify under oath that he used steroids. And so no one who doesn't vote for him for the Hall of Fame says that his numbers are not Hall of Fame worthy. They're more than Hall of Fame worthy. They make him as we've said arguably the greatest player of all time, it's all about the steroids issue. So Jeremy, this is where we try to be as fair to Barry Bonds as we can because what he did during the alleged steroid usage is well documented at this point, numerically. What he was before, when he was with the Pittsburgh pirates, I want the kids out there to recognize exactly how good he was. Well, Barry Bonds, it's an interesting career arc Pablo, okay? So he comes up in 1986. And, you know, he's famous before he gets the big leagues. Barry was picked by Pittsburgh and has reported to Bradenton. He's known baseball all his life. Is the son of an outstanding major league player, Bobby bonds. This is Barry was about just two years old. He always had a baseball bat his hand. You could see that he was going to be a ball player. A guy who had this very rare combination of power and speed, all these talents. Bobby bonds became only the second player in baseball history to join the 300 club 300 stolen bases and now 300 home run. Barry Bonds, comes in the major leagues in 1986 with high expectations. And he comes in and over the first four years of his career in Pittsburgh, which is a franchise, it is really struggled in the half decade before he gets there. He's a good player he finishes 6th in The Rookie of the year balloting in 1986. But he's not great by any means. I was looking at the numbers. You know, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Bobby bonds. They were all better players in their first four years than Barry Bonds was. Barry bodge is age 20 6 season is 1990. And that's when he takes off. Very bonds is just having a remarkable year. That's better than his daddy used to do. It's a little bit later than average for one of the game's all time greats. But when he takes off, he takes off. And he's spectacular 1990. He is the national league MVP. It leads the pirates to the postseason for the first time in 11 years and Barry doesn't hit very well. The next year, he's great again. He's the runner up for the MVP award. Terry Pendleton. And they reach the playoffs again. He struggles in the playoffs again. The next year, the pirates are back in bonds. Has a season that results in his second MVP awarded three years. So now he's won two and three seasons, runner up the other year, and suddenly, you know, you kind of look around the game, you say, Barry Bonds is the best player of the game. He could do everything and he did it. He did everything magnificently except throw. He did not have a great arm. But he compensated for it and he. He was such a great outfielder anyway that he won all those gold glove awards. He had all those outfield assists, but that's the weakest part of his game. Everything else is in a plus. Hitting command of the strike zone, speed, base running, catching the ball. Getting to the ball. He's this force of nature in baseball. He's that.

Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron
"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

Now this is his ninth year of that 10 year window or if you were saying on earlier in the program just for people just tuning in and hear the news, Yet Bonds is not in again. If he doesn't get in again next year, you say they still he still has a chance to get in. Yeah, Through this veterans committee. That means these extra committees that meet later on in other rooms, you know, just to confuse everybody just to confuse everybody. They're meeting in private rooms, and that's how Bud Seelig got in. And that's how Tony LaRussa got in. That's how Harold Baines got it. Murph was telling me during the break, Polly that they don't meet every year. Yeah, that's correct. Well, they do meet it. They meet every year, but they take different eras every year, so they rotate. There's like a modern era. They'll consider modern names. Then there's like a golden era where they consider like the fifties. Then there's like I care what they call the seventies. They just cut the shag rug and bonds and like, Let's get him in both. She won't get in until I guess the modern era meet every third year, we'll both She doesn't get in. You really will see me with a fur vest in the giant letter B. Marching around the Cooperstown steps. That's not even a joke. That's a promise that mustache Dude, I'll have the water buffalo hat on with the horns and everything and shine, Barney Rubble. Polly! Yeah, Giant be anyway. Hey, By the way, let's get back to the Hall of Fame for a second. So bonds was well short. He was at 61% again. You need to 75. The closest one Curt Schilling, Murph. He was 16 votes short. But Schilling was upset, he announced on social media. He said he wants to be off the ballot next year he posted on Facebook. I'm requesting to be removed from the ballot. Defer to the Veterans Committee and men's men whose opinions actually matter and you are in a position to actually judge a player. So that's That's Curt Schilling. In fact, we we've got some Tim Kurkjian on nobody getting into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year. I'm not surprised at all by the results. That's just the feel I had for this. What I was surprised by is that Bonds Clemens and chilling Made very little progress upward here, and that really bodes poorly for them next year, which is their 10th and final year on the ballot. This was the year with no first timers on the ballot, who were first ballot Hall of Famers. I thought it was open this year for Schilling to take a big move and actually get in and then the other two bonds and Clemens to make get a good spike. But that didn't happen, and I recognize that 45 months ago and ever since I thought nobody's getting in this year. Well, there it is. Okay, So you guys ready for more confusion? I guess I found hopes. You want to know one boat She's getting in, right? That's if that's if he gets it right. Come on, come on Photos, So there's four committees. There's nothing like committees, too, By the way, right, Polly? We're going for a few committees on the murder of Max Show, you know. So which committee's meeting, by the way is shut out Junior Giants committee meetings, which are unbelievable, but anyway Point being here is 11 is called golden Days. Probably not to be confused with David Bowie's golden years. Great track, too. Yes, which you did for Anquan Boldin. Wop, wop wop yet? Golden years.

"Um, right, so it it exacerbates some of your dimensions of your body. But so for Bob for Bonds and Clemens, it's one thing but for Schilling, so much of what people are talking about occurred like after he was done. Yeah. You know, if not all of it, actually, I think, yeah, it was a little pain in the ass. But he was a picture, but not this But everybody, You know someone A lot of great stars were pains in the ass when they were playing like Randy Boss. Think is that Freddy Johnson was historic. That's right. That's right. He was just mean and Randy Moss was the same way with in the NFL. Remember this? He was like he was like a malcontent all the time. And now he's great. He's fantastical television. Love. People have turned. You got Boss. Great segment they've turned They're like perception about him now. But what if he had gone the other way in the NFL had a character clause and he was just like, I don't know a recluse and, you know, get off my lawn type. And, you know, talking trash on social media like Curt Schilling does. And you know, a lot of it is because he had that shirt that was like, basically hang the media, the with the journalist saying the journalists or whatever it may have been, and so people are taking things that happened after his playing career. And applying applying that character clause to that which is much as I disagree, and Curt Schilling will never enter my popular list ever because of all the things that he's done, and said over the last 45 years, six years But at the same time if I'm a evaluating him as a baseball player, it Zane congruent and so that that's the challenge with the character clause is that you can apply it, however you want. It's it's such a subjective application. It really is that it makes it unfair to be included, and but the problem is, you can't get away with it. Right. You can't get you can't do away with it because then guys like Barry Bonds and Clemens. They brought the A rod They get in tomorrow. So is based solely off of accomplishment that changes that changes the whole the whole of fame. But yes, and it's never gonna revert back to that. But back in the day, it was just based solely on accomplishments. So the modern players are Being judged by two different scales. Yeah, the back of their baseball card, but also whether or not you agree with what they espouse whether it's political or otherwise, By the way, just so rude. J T Realmuto, We're talking baseball. Five years $115 Million Phillies. Nice. Just saw that five years. 1 15 great player, Grilli. Good catch or five years of Buck 15 staying with the Phillies were, you know? Listen, what? I'm gonna waste anybody's time here and say Bonds and club course. Come on, man. I mean, They were just phenomenal at what they did enhanced medically Sure, no doubt. But to me, no doubt hold of Famers without without a speck. Of liquid from a syringe or a pill Now shillings a little different because shillings career What you're you're evaluating it two different ways. When you look at you say, Well, 216 wins. Not really. That impressive, You know, starts with Baltimore couple of nondescript years with the Phillies then and then in 93 wins the NLCS M v P. And then, of course, he becomes a beast shortly thereafter one of the all time great October legends undeniably so the Yankees his postseason that you're evaluating in a lot of ways. Well, it is, but not totally. He's one of 18 pitches with 3000 strikeouts. He's one of 18 pictures. That's ever played the game with 3000 strikeouts, and by the way in the modern era, he's number one. A lot of people don't references to me. This is an important stat. He's number one in strikeout to walk ratio. All time number one. Yeah, ahead of Randy Johnson slightly, so it's just not. It's not a highly referenced that that's what that doesn't mean that people are It doesn't mean that it shouldn't be reference. Of course, you know, I mean, three World Series again If you're on three words like Bernie Williams has more than three, but Bernie wins not to hold the favor to be Because while he was a primary piece of those Yankees dynasties of the dynasty, you know when you're on multiple World Series teams and your VHS or one of the two aces, right? I mean, those world championships feel a little different to me, all right? You wanted MVP in the World Series? Yeah, all the strikeouts to make her Children's the whole thing. But I trust my eyes. I know what I saw was a beast. He didn't want to Cy Young, You know, I know. Um, but you know where he led the league twice. In case you talk about a strikeout. I mean, there are there's an argument against him being in. So the question becomes do does that postseason success, which I guess is included. I'm trying to like, you know, it's not in the 216 wins. It's not. I know I'm not talking about that..

SF Giants exclude Aubrey Huff from 2010 World Series reunion, citing 'unacceptable' tweets
"I got it wrong in the last segment by saying that Aubrey huff was an average to below average major league. I looked up the stats over the break and he was slightly above average. So don't mean to disparage man Just because of what it is that he is saying that is getting him. Banned from giants. Reunion I do find interesting STU gods because I don't believe Sports franchises are generally moral entities. Bright leave business comes first and in San Francisco especially where you have a customer base. That is more liberal than Middle America. Say you can't be offending a women when he's saying things like quote divorce rates among athletes will continue to rise until the justice system is rightfully fixed. Way Women who have never thrown a touchdown pass hit a game winning three or hit a two. Oh slider deserve half of a man's hard earned money just for having babies and while it really shouldn't matter considering like his comments the fact that the giants actually have a woman as a first base coach does add another layer to this. I'm I wonder though because while I don't think that Aubrey huff makes for a very sympathetic victim. I do think that these reunion celebrations should involve the if people have their freedom if the players have their freedom right They should involve those players like the giants are doing an awful lot like the giant built. This monument of a BALLPARK ON BARRY BONDS. His feet and then kick them out of the park. The giants are also run by an organization. Run by a man the only man I can think of in baseball at the top of the sport who got into a very public videotaped and banned domestic abuse situation in front of people that people got to see and baseball punish. Is there a line though? Like if the met celebrate the eighty six team and Lenny Dykstra as a free man. Should the mets have the right to not include Lenny Dykstra and that celebration? Look I am just telling you that these are moral entities and when they start waving around there moralities I tend to be skeptical and think they're trying to protect their business. That's about customers and not morality. Yeah well this is a business venture and I mean I guess Kudos to them getting out in front of it because if Aubrey huff does show up to this and they either choose to ignore his past or do it. Dan says which is this really for the players. Let them get together. Whatever then you have all sorts of protests outside and becomes an ugly situation. And then what's going to end up happening is you'RE GONNA end up bending the public pressure anyways and uninviting him but my the Aubrey Huff I'm guessing has not changed much since two thousand ten. In fact he hasn't changed. The Times have changed. The world has changed okay but to. I guess to Dan's Point Aubrey. Huff was a big part of that team in a reason that he won the world series. And he's the exact same person now as he was then but the times have changed. Should it be excluded? Because The Times have changed. I mean they have a two thousand ten but I think what I believe. Is that the moralizing around sports. As if it were something pure doesn't need to infect these particular things which are just nostalgia and memories like you you 'cause almost as much attention bring almost as much attention to this nobody. Do you think a lot of people would have said you think a lot of people would have said Aubrey. Huff should not be invited to that. Because Lenny Dykstra has committed actual crime And plenty of people would have enjoyed seeing Lenny dykstra because the remembering the baseball player. They're not remembering the human being. I imagine it came up in some sort of promotions meeting where someone right raise the question. What are we? GonNa do about Aubrey. Huff and someone asked. What do you mean? And then they brought up these tweets these public comments and they wait everything look. I'm sure I'm Aubrey. Huff probably knows what's headed in his direction. If even chooses to attend one of these things at the very least it's massive amounts of doing it could be picketing it could be all sorts of ticketing union. I'm Aubrey huff. Could become the face of something larger in an election year in a in a tumultuous time in our country I think he could be lifted up to be something more than what. This is really a ten year celebration of a sports team. And I can't fault the giants for not wanting any part of the conversation in that city. There's picketing the cubs are actually celebrate that world series and Chapman. Is HE GONNA be invited or people are GonNa have a problem with that? I mean he was a big part of that team Chapman. He's got some stuff I just I don't know how you're supposed to do this stuff. When you say you've heard me say last week I hate being governed by public relations and what I'm telling you is the giants just invited it. And we might not have even noticed that is postulated bigger story. It it it may not have arrived in our doorstep. It might have been a San Francisco story but it might not have gotten all the way over here to the other side of the country. If the giants hadn't taken the preemptive public relations measure of punishing a guy who Understandably some of the things. This is not a defense of anything that he's saying. I'm just wondering whether or not they've brought attention to something this by virtue signaling here by by saying look we are a virtuous franchise. That doesn't tolerate Aubrey huff. Unless he's winning the world series for us. I mean I never would have known of Aubrey. Huff stances comments or what he tweeted out. Had the giants not invited into this? There hasn't been much of a secret people understand that he's been one of these people who says things that are objectionable questionable. Often you know just not ethically sound some of the things that he's doing and I understand why the giants wouldn't want that voice at a reunion but that face was in their uniform. That face was wearing Their colors and holding up that trophy and I just don't get making ten years later a ceremony. That's meant to celebrate the achievements. I don't get Bringing this kind of unwanted attention to your franchise by taking a measure that I feel is something. That doesn't have a lot of precedent. I don't you know if a guy's in jail because students is bringing up Chapman thing Chapman Chapman lose games in baseball for that domestic abuse crime. I know that it is something that was questionable when they signed him because they overlooked whatever you Think the morality should have been there in order of in order to choose one hundred and three mile an hour fastball. He was suspended. Thirty Games So you've got to assist Aubrey. Huff not been suspended right and I hate for this any of this to sound like a pencil plate for ten years. I I hate for any of this to sound like. I'm defending this dude. Or what he says but I just don't get the idea of attaching morality to a reunion
