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

And here is what they have learned. and I'll have come after number one Americans are much more aware of all five rights protected by the First Amendment when asked unprompted to name them, that is in this survey released ahead of Competition Day, which is September seventeenth. nearly three-quarters of Americans seventy three percent correctly named freedom of speech as one of the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment that is up from forty eight percent in two thousand seventeen. Now, you could be shocked that only forty eight percent of people knew that in two thousand seventeen but you should be pleased that seventy three percent knew that this year and I, just I.

"barry bonds" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"I was a little bit surprised. Buster in that conversation because obviously we have seen all the quote unquote proposals. That have been out there. You know or Zona Plan that Florida Plan. You know even you know Dallas has been include. Nbc's in what? I asked Tony Straight out which one of these plants at the better possibility which I believe is one of the questions that you suggest that 'cause obviously well let's talk about these kind of QNA's he said there isn't a proposal on my desk and that was surprising to me. I always thought that obese proposals were being talked about that. All of these were had been run by the Players Association. Now we have learned that Major League baseball getting proposal together and it should be at Tony Status cow in the upcoming day. But that was the most interesting thing buster. That's that the players association wasn't that involved in those stocks Marley earlier today did a radio interview and I was asked about the the context of you know that That proposal that Major League Baseball is GONNA put forward to the players. They said look for me. Based on what I've heard from agents in club executives Major League Baseball Officials. That would be like the first batter stepping into the box for the very first inning. The top of the first in terms of the process. What what's your on it. That the cluster. And that's when I mentioned that I was surprised. It's exactly that this is the very beginning. Now let's look at the positive. The beginning is happening right and we are in. May and obviously you and I have heard that the are looking at late July. An mid-july is an option. So right now. We're thinking of the three weeks spring. Greg obviously this all depends on what happens with this terrible pandemic and you know I live in New York City and I'm seeing first hand that this is nowhere near control at this point but the good part is that you're right the batteries out the first pitch is coming but we thought I had been out there a while ago. Yeah exactly two of the biggest issues that they're going to have to deal with in negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association one is The salary rollbacks that the major league baseball teams are GONNA be looking for. I heard actually this week. That on the management side. There's actually one teen. It's already instructed their Front Office for two thousand and twenty one to cut payroll so that's the mindset on that side. The other two is the question of liability You know if a player walks into a stadium he gets a corona virus. He gets sick. Who's actually responsible for that? What did you learn in your conversation with Tony about those? Two issues about salary rollbacks about liability in terms of salary rollback To be very clear that all the conversations and this is quoting you know even chief Tony Clark. That everything we're going to talk about in terms of salary is done and that the focus right now. He said we have an agreement. Obviously that agreement can be adjusted right. So that's that's the one thing that Tony said about salary and the one thing that he stress constantly he said this is all about player. Safety and the liability is an issue. And it's something that they're discussing and not only for the players buster for third third parties to right people who get infected with the coronavirus because the particular team opens up for business right so it's not only about. The players. Reliability is much wider than that and the focus player health and safety number one for the Union. That was the one thing that Tony said that the one thing that we care about that Major League Baseball should cure about and until they result that he basically he didn't say it flat out but he implied that their membership would not agree to anything that would not guarantee players safety and again you can read Marley story on. Espn DOT COM in a moment. We're GONNA be talking. Jim Leyland the longtime manager of the Detroit. Tigers the pirates and other teams One of the players I intend to ask him about. Miguel Cabrera someday will make a speech at cooperstown. I don't think it's going to be the longest speech ever made cooperstown. Marlton I feel I. You know look you feel bad for everybody affected by this in any walk life but you know. I've thought Miguel Cabrera who? When I saw him in spring training he was in tremendous shape and it looked like okay. He has a chance to bounce back from last year he just turned thirty seven in April. Two thousand eight hundred and fifteen hits. Mickey Cabrera will make one of my favorites and you said you know. He's he doesn't have to be on. He certainly be memorable and I'll tell you this is the kind of person. Go Cabrera S. I broke my my leg a couple of years ago and I happen to be walking by Detroit airport kind of hobbling with my suitcase and within a connecting flight and all of a sudden someone comes from behind the grabbed my suitcase and I turn around to obviously due to yell. Whoever this person is and Caparo and he looks at me he goes. Do you need some help. And I thought it was one of those moments that shows who make. Yes that is this one of the most humble superstar in Major League Baseball. And when you buster about the kind of guys that this affects it also reminded me of Felix Hernandez who is also looking for another chance. Who is really supposed to make that breaks rotation and isn't that same position of not knowing whether he's GonNa have a chance and you said begin. Everyone is always criticising that. Cabrera has all these years left on his contract and he came back with a healthy back. You know trying to be an everyday player again and now we don't know what we're GONNA get. We'll say that's a great story. I'd never heard that you'd never told that. That's awesome. All right MARLA. Thank for doing this. Of course thank you. You guys have a good day..

Barry Bonds says Major League Baseball has given him a ‘death sentence’
"He bury bonds in a story that one link the story written by bag early basically says that he feels like major league baseball's has given up on him and he's received a death sentence and obviously he's referring to his hall of fame candidacy in and also maybe the of his ability to get or not get a job in the industry but all right where you guys weigh in on this I know locally there's a lot of people that want very in the hall of fame nationally it's the I don't care and they are they do care they care that he's not in the hall they don't want him there and and I just my whole thing is we don't know who did what if A. rod gets in before bonds I'm gonna lose it same way about war teas I'm we don't know who did what and when and exactly what they took and what the impact was drugs are drugs in Woodbury took was not with the other guys to look at all these different things that make it very difficult to compare so my argument guys it's been this way for years which is she just put them all in it's a museum it's not it does not say if somebody says I'm a hall of Famer you don't say you're of great moral fabric no you don't you say you're one of the best players in the error that you played it is very bonds one of the best players in the era that he played in we all know the answer to that question is obviously yes let's not go beyond that we don't know who did what who didn't do what and what the impact was so let's just take the best players of the era and put them in and if they have known associations the PD's noted it and if they if if there's no association to be dis when you put a man then don't noted and if something comes up in the future then go back and noted on their plaque but this idea that these great players should be on the outside looking in it's just to me it's they're wearing too much of the blame for an you know for something that was much much much larger than them as

"And the unpopular could still. I think it was I. I remember the scene vividly. He actually was walking off complaining and he got ejected. I was selected. Okay how what happened? Well Yeah I've ever younger up so these guys they've got that earpiece in and you really don't notice the timing on it because timing's pretty good to come from up in the press box down an fire so you don't really notice. A lack of timing and the pitch was almost balanced part. Here's strike you all strike. The hitter turns argues with them apart. Point of the press box saw nene ended up at checked out of the game guy was so upset And and when you look at that replay even though the ball spouse there was a little portion of the bullet might come across that line. And that's going on so I always tell the story crew cal I got much. Starting Soon I came up and so the California the first year and call. Pitch dug-out screaming at call. The pinch was up a little bit. They screamed they lowered it a little bit cold one low the teams yellen and when they stopped yelling. That was my strikes. See I trust that more than any technology of today. Well like I say these guys do a great job. I'm old school. I I still put the cameras tapes on all the time because I love much in the history of the game and All school I'm not a real fan of stuff that's going on. I think the batter was giants prospect. Jacob Hayward Yeah because I remember watching him down in the bullpen and I think Steve Costea was down there and I'm watching him and he stayed in the bullpen. He's not took them a long time to leave the Dugout user meeting which I got upset with the apart scream out getting them out there and start watching it in the bullpen from the press. Box over talking stick and the guy is still sitting in thought. You get one more objection. I got out of my seat. I went down to the bullpen. And you know all those young pitchers in the boy of applied. Us supplies sees me come a nice guy. He said he just left. I want to just one more. That's pretty good now. These are wonderful stories but one thing I didn't ask about is your childhood is a giants. Fan who you talked about maze. But what other giants were your guys? And and how often did you go out to the stick? Oh and and what games do you remember? I mean nine hundred and sixty two obviously was hours. That was the year when the giants lost to the Yankees in seven games. Yeah my dad took mainly game seven and I remember. He wasn't a smoke cigars down. Everybody was smoking cigarettes at the. He's walking around nervous wreck but You Know Mickey Mantle Yogi Berra and all those guys and stuff so was pretty exciting for me and I never really hit that ball. I doubt I remember jumping on the field after the game. I wanted to get up close and see what these you don't worry about. That was that was great but I mean growing up. I mean me Kirkland Felipe earlier mccovey I mean you know it's funny because I- mccovey Fan Willie's than I ended up calling pitchers on them. You know it's funny. You think these guys are so much older than this and all of a sudden a gap and you probably you probably powered Barry Bonds in new -pired bobby bonds now. Many speaking of game. Seven and sixty two mays at that double the right field. It was a soggy field. It had run Roger. Maris's the right fielder. Mattia LOU IS ON I. He goes to third. Willie gets a double. That's two outs. In the night. The giants are down one. Nothing mccovey comes up and lines to bobby. Richardson game overseers over but Willie says to this day. If he were the runner rather than the hitter he was score. He would not have just gone to thirty. He would've blown right by the third base coach and scored. Absolutely you were there. Would he have scored? Yes or no I say I I say yeah I mean not remember that moment but there were so many times our studies one of the greatest baserunners I've ever seen. Willie didn't look at a coach. Willy willies always watch runs. His eyes were on the ball and it didn't eat it. Breaks stride and he cash. We just got a foul ball. Scott to the computer had smoked the booth right next to ours. Really got Miami busted or computer to monitor anyway but like I said we'll take basis when no other player just one. That's basically the age old question. What's the best tool? I mean you series. What is better than the next there? What what does the best he can say? What is it Willie? I think about apartment stuff and I thought about watching some of these great players and they were always a step ahead. What am I gonNa do with this throw or whatever and I thought that when I heard I would try to think ahead of the place. I would be in a position or was able to get to a position. Well so they're still trying to fix this monitor but your father wants more before he scouted and signed Willie mays. He played shortstop for the Indian SPEC in the twenties and thirties. Now he came across babe. Ruth ty COBB. I mean really. Yeah your father played in gains in Babe. Ruth was barreling into him at second. Base tire spikes high at second base. Yeah Yeah Oh my God. I Look Retro Sheet on poet. Small box scores and look at those Yankee things on my dad's McKay with they stop at one of my dad's he he didn't tell a lot of stories and stuff you know. I wish we rely about. Ask THEM A lot more questions. But why number one story talked about. Babe. Ruth came in and took him out at second base sheets and and carry my dad off in a stretch and so after the game. My Dad's late in the trainer's room and incomes Babe Ruth. Since how you don't kid might. That's that was one of the greatest moments of his career. I mean because they look theft. Babe Babe Ruth was just such an idol to all those guys. My Dad used to tell me that when the Yankees when they were playing the Yankees and they were taking batting practice. The team's never left. It was kind of like a McGuire deal fans will come to watch batting practice with teams leave when they was hidden and stuff and I remember telling that story McGuire because he was getting a little frustrated in ninety. Eight opposite. Out Watchmen Washer I to watch. Because it was unbelievable what he was and so I told him that. Story About Myse- Marcus enjoy that I said because I'll give you the story of Babe Ruth. My Dad my dad had sit on the teams would come. And that's an honor your so. So he played against. Ruth and sign maze. With how could he do better than that? How do you follow up? Hey consign me because you you played some ball. I couldn't hit the curve ball. How how how good was your dad? How what kind of Ballplayer was he? I think he yeah. He was a lot of speed You know good field shortstop I think he held the record for longtime for most putouts. Something in a game. You know really only big lakes for four years when it was a pretty good players back then so. I always thought so. That's something just to get up there. It's an amazing story. Ill that he. He managed in the minor lakes and then scout from Boston. I and another guy that he signed was Mel Parnell. Pretty good so so went from your your father to you and by the way one of your two sons and I remember writing. The story played with Ricky Henderson. Not In the big leagues but with the San Diego Surf. Dogs and independent baseball. And Willie. I mean ricky in his forties just didn't stop playing no and one of his teams would San DIEGO SURF. Dogs and your son played with them. Yeah Terry Kennedy. Was the man against Terry any side at pepperdine with the dodgers and when he was a pepper nine. Hebrew roommates buddies Noah lowry and Danny Haran were roommates and so when he signed with the dodgers Kennedy was Working with the dodgers at that time so when he got red what address any minor leagues with the Rockies and then after being released. I think you'd better weather in entertaining in flora and Kennedy wanted a month's team so we invite him down San Diego and rookie. Who you're scrape the kids. Yeah I mean he he he absolutely loved it to this day. I recently spoke with them. How much he enjoyed. He enjoyed that as much as playing in the big leagues because it was like his childhood. That's that's basically you? You don't play for the money wasn't a business. You play for the love of the game and you know what I see overnight with a look at them on amid still put him out there and yet he would. I always always used to tell them. I said Ricky. You're GonNa Miss Your Hall of fame. Induction. 'cause YOU'RE GONNA have a game. You're ricky story where we're at New York Ricky's up. The bad is what the mets then and I called a strike one on becky steps out of the box and says he doesn't think that strike reassert strike and took up mass strikes back in the box talking to third.

It was real baseball right because you could argue. You wouldn't get ejected oftentimes but now. You can't say much at all because once. Ya Plays reviewed it's Gospel. You can't go back stiff. Otherwise you're tossed. Yeah and I liked it back. You had your arguments and stuff and I remember Bobby Cox we.

He helped me change higher. That's how bobby was you know. These are two famer. Yeah there were a lot of times. You know the arguments I've ever time in L. A. and I tossed vern rapp was a manager of the cardinals and I tossed him out. Ballgame for arguing balls and strikes in the dugout. I got his coach. Sonny Roberto and then Lou. Brock came up to bat and he was going to jump on the bandwagon. I call the pitch down the middle of play the strike a new step out. You know to show me up to get back in the box. He didn't get back in the box. I says pitched the ball through the nets pinch strike too. He wasn't even in the box. And then the next pitch. I tossed him him out in the game. Remember those three guys in one game and I remember after the game. I came in the dressing room. They're dodger stadium. I get the phone rings from his Cell Phone Sur- phone rings. There was Giacomo calling me. Go wait a kid. That was awesome. That's wonderful another great story. I recall if drew Jose Cardenal. Now you ran him like twice in one day three times in two days right. This is fantastic. Yeah Yeah well I can count the second one so it was at first base where I think Zia Palm Springs are used drive down there for spring training okay. Cardinal rounded first base wanted to second base but he missed her space by three feet and he got the second basically standing there and They appealed to I and I called him out and he said a few choice words that I throw them out at so argument soon and he goes to the dugout and in those days and I don't think they do it anymore but pitchers when they finished the game or player they go run in the outfield. Do their laps. The Games go on so Carnell because the dugout said. He's out in the outfield. During running this lapse so I stopped the game and I said I said Herman Francis Imagine Saharan. Hit Him off the field. We're not starting a game and Herbert goes eight Kenny. Can you run? I said hey can run all the way to the bucks and I said it so loud. The crowd got a kick out so the following day. A triple A. Jim Quick and rather CNN big on par through just working three men and we're standing before the game outside the locker room and the cubs Oklahoma steer buying Harthill came up the runway and he spit till quicken best us. But I went in and told the crew chief on the satellite say Ryan. We get out there. You GotTa don't let him in the game. He's dumb and Rani said you can't do that. He's not waiting today so we got out of the home plate. Luciano took the lineup cards. Some peanuts lowery and looked at me. Let me see your lineup parts. The delighted person was quote. Cornell's name and give me your pen and across Carnell in the lineup and we heard Franks came out told him the story and Herman was fine with with what happening. That's great so I guess I was three times. I might be a record. Yeah we'll have more of our conversation with Eddie Montague right after this. Hello Heather Knight. Hello Peter Hart Lob you may have heard from the east coast media and even the White House that San Francisco has literally become a toilet and we completely disagree. The big event podcast is becoming total. Sf and we're going to highlight what still great about San Francisco will interview colorful characters share history pay tribute to our favorite. Sf movies and just have fun. Listen for the cable. Car Bell Total. Sf wherever you get your podcasts. The mets and red SOx game the grinder to Buckner the. Weren't you the right field on fire? What happened to the ball? Well so I was in right field. John kindles working first base. And you'd figure in the game's over here Pinson. The play and Millie went down the field that I think he peaked yet. I'm not sure but looking was pretty quick and you know what I'm not sure whether or not the ball through his legs and then So that was game six and Marty Barrett second baseman started. Come over and get the ball. Game was over now run sport. I said I got it already. So I picked up the ball and took an address from I put a little mark on it and the next day got rained out and for game seven. Come back the ball pocket. And the mets come back and win game so after the game I remember Johnny McNamara was one of the first guys are locker room. You came in a nicer and stuff you know. That stuff happens but Then Arthur Richmond. Who worked for years with the mets and then also went on to the Yankees wonderful man so he came in. I said already. I said I've got something for you. I said this is the ball that wanted for you. This is the ball at went through buckner slake slob and eat him. WanNa take it all right so you worked for them in Columbus you deserve more than I do so keep them up so he took the ball and about a year later he called an ASS. Suze that ball. He says we're thinking of action. Offer charities outcasts and he had no problem free probably had about five six thousand dollars. It's my wife and Hopper Hawaii watching. Espn at morning. And they said record dollar amount for baseball went for maybe three thousand dollars and that was the ball and Charlie Sheen the actor Bonnet Charlie Sheen. Wow No regrets. No that'd be in my addict just pfleger industrial since that I think ball sold over again so last time zones half a million dollars so if you if we move onto the modern game again you know the strike zone with. What can you say what? What are the developments with the Automated Strike Zone? We now we have the newer technology the Hawkeye rather than track man but It seems like it's coming And maybe the umpires going appreciate this. But the rubble empires. The technology is so advanced that there's part of the game that doesn't ever want that human element to change but there's another part of the game that says well maybe the computers in the technology and the Hawkeye A system could could even get more right than the cars are getting it right and the UMPIRES. Get it right. Ninety nine percent of the time. They're well over. Ninety almost ninety eight percent recommend you know behind the plate and on the basis. It's about the same there. Percentet`y you know being a supervisor. I got to watch this and I have to review all the plays all the time and it's amazing like I tell them Mike ever supervising. I've been doing this night. Here's the supervisor and you know the last couple of years I can't remember play being missed. That was really outrageous. Maybe one or two OL Southerners Bang Bang. I was put down report super slow as a super slow flight. tells these guys they get down to the dubs because they all want to get everything right and it's how we work. We work like that. You don't want to miss anything and just you can't beat the camera you can't beat that guy slide into second base and coming off a half an inch and they're going to keep the tag on right. That's not what it was. What's meant to be but you know what they're dealing with and replay. If they see that being changed I think the person they're okay with replaying. I don't know about the new system. We're talking about automated strike so we we did that down and fall this year and impress me so much and there was some batters and we saw some video of the replace where it was definitely not a strike but it was called the strife right and there were arguments.
"barry bonds" Discussed on Giants Splash
"Hello and welcome to the giant splash. I'm John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle and we welcome Special Guest Eddie Montague to the podcast. Montague is a longtime pyre. Who's now an empire supervisor? And we talk about the possibility of a robo up in the majors. Some recent significant umpire hires and his baseball roots. His Dad played in the majors. I Babe Ruth. Anti calm and as a scout he signed a kid from the Birmingham black barons named Willie mays. So we're with Eddie monarchy and Eddie one of the most decorated umpires. I think in history who has great roots In the bay area in San Francisco to the giants and even to Willie mays. And let's get this right out there. Eddie your father also named any Montague Was a scam. The giants back in the nineteen forties the end. He visited a Birmingham one day to check out a kid named Alonzo. Perry who played in the Negro Leagues for the Birmingham. Blackburn's what happened with Alonzo. Perry and your father. And that's couty mission well. The giants sent him down. The Look. Look at Alonzo the power base when I believe in. My Dad liked them a lot but he saw this young kid and I think Willie was only like sixteen. Lee always played with older older fellas and and he saw this kid and he just caught his eye right away with his screen instincts. Power His arm everything about a man so My Dad kind of forgot about Alonzo and after Willie is an amazing story. An city with Eddie Montague the longtime umpire he umpired in the in the major leagues from Nineteen. Seventy six to nineteen ninety nine. A San Francisco native grew up in Daly City. You have two thousand nine two thousand nine right and now is enough supervisor and you could see him in the press box at all giant home games for the most part sometimes over the as mostly in San Francisco and you know that there's been some news lately on the Umpires Front We've had some retirements. Jeff Kellogg Dana. Demuth Cedar Strong Everett in four guys for longstanding fell type. Two of them Everett and Kellogg believed to be empire supervisor. Yes yeah now also in the news. Perwin Danley. Who I went to school with at San Diego State and played with Tony Gwynn. He was an outfielder. Steve Sales those three guys by the way played in the same outfield at San Diego State all reached the Big Leagues Tony as a ballplayer. Cronin daily has no partner. Steve Sales as a trend with the Oakland A.'s okay. I didn't know that three paths to the major leagues. Three different ways. Tony Gwynn's too. And they all play in the same outfield back in the late seventies early eighties but anyway Kirwin Danley has been promoted to true chief as has Alfonso Marquez. Now What's interesting? Their historic and wonderful. Is that Dan? Lee is the first African American crew chief and Marquez is the first Latin American true chief. What does that mean to you Eddie? Wit and what an inspiration for for kids. Who See these guys in the elevator roles? Yeah well you know I work with Kirwin plenty. I came up and terrific you know. He's got great instincts. Whose BASEBALL ALL AMERICAN DOWN. There said he wants an undrafted. All American yeah. Yeah and he you know he's got great instincts and he's he's taken the role the last couple of years filling in as a crew chief and has shown a great job you know. He's very passionate about what he does. And so I think he's going to be an excellent courage yet it it. It's it's great to see you know like anything else is. Why wasn't this done a long time ago but anyway it is progress now You had some wonderful history as an apart- now everybody envisions empires as the four guys. Who have no friends out there except for themselves? Yeah but your history is amazing. I mean when I go down the list you were there when Pete rose past ty Cobb on the all time hits list you were there. When Barry Bonds hit a seventy I seventy second seventy third home. Run in that final series. Giants dodgers at at the Ballpark in one. You're there for Lou Brock's three thousand. You were there when Kirby Puckett hit that home. Run in the ninety one series. And you're there when when when Wilkie Wilson it that little roller up the line and bill buckner didn't feel too cleanly but some amazing stuff. Food highlight as a as an art. Like your most memorable game good or bad while I think. I think you know when you think back the Pete Rose thing always stuck in my head of that one night and I can see it like I was there today and and it was at certain times a night when the sky was just beautiful sunset and goodyear blimp overhead the flash bulbs or flashing and the Heat's versus bat. That's when he broke the record you know. Hit a line drive to left field and I remember The game stopped little. Came out and son. Tommy ells first base coach and Steve Garvey and I just stood back there in watch and it was really emotional especially when he came out and hugged his dad and stuff like that little turnaround Garvey and so it was great. It was great moment in past tightened up and my dad played against all my dad. My Dad played for Cleveland. So I thought that was one of the highlights that I was a part of it it was. It was the reds Padron. Steve Garvey in those pictures because he was the padres first baseman that year there shall through the Bitch and actually sat on the mound which criticized for yeah later during the ceremony. But that's another story What what about your you grew up a giants fan right. You're born in San Francisco. You grew up in Daly city and your your father raised you. You Seal Stadium Right. You were there the first couple years when the giants were there. I am before. Yeah I've been all three openers opening date. David Seals Stadium. My Dad took me opening the candlestick park and then I opened up behind home plate as higher for the new ballpark. So yeah so it was pretty lucky to have all that stuff happened and But I've never seen stadium.
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

"barry bonds" Discussed on Starting9
"He stole berry talking trout. Chow chow trout's never driven in over one hundred ten runs. I don't know no no he's scored one hundred and twenty five runs out so he's he hit is the for he's the i player to hit. Thirty home runs steel forty five bases and score one hundred twenty five runs essy's. That's false. That's never got mike trout's never done that. Thirty home runs forty five and scored one hundred twenty five yeah. He's didn't twenty twelve thirty homers. Forty-nine steals on and twenty nine runs led the league in runs and bags yeah i was i was looking. I was looking at twenty sixteen where he had thirty bags twenty-nine jacks but my my point was he's. He's done that one time. Barry bonds did that. Five times very also also had a forty forty season and barry bonds played elite level defense so my trump's what elite level left field defense compared to something like league average centerfield defense if you've got an elite defender out in left field. That's a pretty cool thing. Sorry that that you put my trout in centerfield. Put them in field or not that okay so my trump played centerfield. Wh what do you want me to be angry. Barry bond gold glove field monistic on people because they displaced mike trout for peter orcas. I i know and trust me. That was the beginning of all right. Mike trout back to centerfield old but here's the thing you're basically just gonna play two feet off of the fucking warning track because we don't want you dive in for shit and we don't want you running into the wall because we just want you hitting the baseball also why you'll never see mike trout. I dunno might try to still thirty bags again yeah. They don't want him. They don't want him sliding sliding headfirst in the second base. They don't walk trout doing a lot of things that a superstar player does on a baseball field if we're just being fucking real all right just just seriously seriously. Let's not i mean he's not taking anybody. I mean if anything that's just a reflection of the fact that people are more uh responsible and valuing their franchise assets than they were at the time of barry bonds like div. The value added of a stolen base isn't worth the risk in a lot of these cases based on the way. The game is played today and based on how the officer run today. We're talking about two different. Two completely different eras again where a guy a guy moving from first to second was valuable based on the way to the game was being played when when barry bonds was playing baseball so what did barry bonds do he put himself in his team in the best possible position more times than not when he was on first base if he didn't hit the fucker out of the park and did that on a regular basis. They are telling mike trout. Don't do that so i'm. I'm not knocking might trout necessarily for not doing it because he's had the chains put on the cuffs. Put on them doing know that they're telling them that because i still have north worth of twenty bags last year we know it we know it. That's how do we know it though i mean if he has been conversations about it they talked if there's been articles written about it what the same in the same article about the defensive alignment for my trout not wanting him to play shallow so that he's not worried about diving for a ball and he's taking taking away the extra base hits and giving himself an opportunity to get to the wall and elevate above as opposed to running into. That's why you goes through my trout's highlight reel. You'll see more catches either at the wall or above the wall really than i think you'll see him laying out in flint forward and that's by <unk> designed the i think we all know what berry went on to do in his mid to late thirties but if you're looking strictly at the ah the clip that might trout.

"Now, let me tell you about covering Barry Bonds on a daily basis. He's just a bad guy. One of the worst guys I've ever covered. I don't like Barry Bonds as a guy, and I don't care should not matter not because listen on a daily basis. Barry Bonds went out of the way to be a bad guy to the media. He did not like us and most of us did not not like we despised him. I wouldn't go so far for me to say is I despise it because I was in off him as a baseball player, but on a daily basis, he either wooden speak us, which is breaking rule number one for media because you don't get. Access. So you can't write your store. You don't you're editor saying, we're the very squats. He wouldn't speak. Well, get him to speak. Well, if you got him to speak, he would go out of his way to humiliate or embarrass you or insult you. Or all true. It just I lashed with him one day. He was mad at me came up. I was staying in the middle of the clubhouse, and he came up in behind me and grab my arm and his vice grip and just held my arm and just stared right in my eyes for like probably ten seconds seem like two minutes, and I just looked at him like and. Are you trying to intimidate? I'm not afraid I gotta tell you. I don't know what it was. I have no idea because I was mostly in his corner. He was just by nature, not nice guy. Well, so what? Because when he had that little bat in his hand it was a little bit. And he'd choked up on it. I've never seen anything like this. He was simply the greatest hitter in the history of baseball and the greatest player in the history of baseball. He won eight Gold Gloves. Eight didn't have a big arm. But it was pretty accurate arm. But still in his heyday in Pittsburgh, he could steal bases and legit five to the fifth tool that arm is just okay now, I know I got I am with you compensate. If you look I don't have time to list the records, but we're talking about on base percentage on base, plus slugging slugging. It's just simply this. He was the first hitter. Whoever had the advantage over the pitcher is we've always seen the. Pitcher have the advantage until Barry Bonds came along. And he would stand in there in just spit on those pitches. If it missed by an inch. He would just what was what was it? You had two hundred and twenty-five wall. Would What it it was? was just he shattered babe. Ruth's on bass percenter. Because you just couldn't get the man. And after a while they would walk him. And then they'd say, no, we can try to pitch to him. And he would literally see two pitches a night he would crush those pitches that was in that especially in that two thousand one. I've never seen anything like it. So to me, I don't care what he was off the field at least he didn't. He didn't commit any crimes that I'm aware of. So was he not a good not a good guy belong in the hall from day one? I'm sorry. And by the way, you can give a man all the PD's you want, but you still have to make contact man. I hang on nation and totally agree. What another guy that using foot of numbers? Good question. Shannon back that it if you look let's just take his first eight years. I eight years he had to MVP's three gold glove three silver sluggers. That's what he had in his first eight years in that hall of fame in most of those how many seven years. Fan francisco. He won the MVP. That's the first day. He was still skinny berry at that his first eleven years. Yeah.

So to me, I don't care what he was off the field at least he didn't. He didn't commit any crimes that I'm aware of. So was he not a good not a good guy belong in the hall from day one? I'm sorry. And by the way, you can give a man all the PD's you want, but you still have to make contact man a nation and totally agree. What another guy that using PD foot of numbers? Good question.

MLB -- Why Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens aren't getting into the Hall of Fame
"They get in. But I think it's going to be tight. I also find it ironic that the new voters might decide if bonds and Clements get in. So the new voters who didn't cover bonds and Clemens could decide if bonds and Clemens get into the hall of fame, and if they get in a Rod's going to get in we can start to go down the list. I don't know if Andy Pettitte gets in Sammy Sosa gets in five years ago. I thought this would never happen with bonds Clements it felt like with the old guard. They were not going to let them in because they were the keeper of the flame there at the whole of fame the holes doors open to players who will once thought not to even have, you know, even have a chance here in bonds and Clemens they have a chance a very good chance over the next three years. I love the reaction with Mary on a Rivera Seton. If we could play that that. This is the actual phone call. And if you've ever been around Marianna Rivera that he is who he appears to be from a distance. If you're a fan, and you see him, he's as classy as any athlete I've ever been around as nice as anybody I've ever been around. And no ego. Here is the call from the hall for Marian Rivera. Hello. He's big into him. Who is this?

So we've talked a lot about the stories of the four hall of famers that got voted in yesterday. Mariano Rivera, ROY halladay. Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina again. Congratulations to all of them. It's again, the shame ROY halladay passing away in two thousand seventeen that plane crash. Really, certainly sad sad there. But for the family, it's such a great honor for them. And then there's the story every year now in its seventh year, I should say of Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds to guys Societa with steroids and PD's at they're not getting voted into the hall of fame at this point. They have three more shots on the ballot four goes into veterans committee, which means they're never getting in. Because veterans committee is not letting them. I'm in so three more votes in where were they this year? They went up again. Roger Clemens was at fifty nine point five percent, Barry Bonds, fifty nine point one percent, basically two hundred fifty three votes. Two hundred fifty one votes. They're going to need in the area of three hundred twenty votes to get to that seventy five percent threshold. So after the guys that got in the next was Curt Schilling got basically sixty one percent of the vote, and then it was Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds at fifty nine so three more years. They were both about what fifty three and fifty five last year percentage right in that area there. So they jumped up again. But I gotta jump up. Quick math is going to tell you what another sixteen percent in three years. Are they going to do that? Because you have guys who are voting just basically saying nothing's changed for me. Not vote. No. You get a few that are increasing their balance. But will it be enough again at two fifty three and two fifty one they need another basically sixty five seventy votes to come their way over the next three years to make it in. I always said I think eventually they're going to get in. But I don't know what the turnover is going to be in the voters here over the next three years to wonder if it's gonna make enough difference for them to get in and so much of the conversation around this unanimous vote from Arianna Rivera has been the idea that public. Shame was driving force for the hall of fame voters to go. And to not be the one guy that leaves him off just for the sake of history. We've never done this before all these reasons that are bad reasons to not do anything with this hall of fame voters have a little. More on their side as far as public support from other baseball furious baseball fans who say that because of these guys tied to that cloud of doubt in the steroid era. We're going to leave them out. We feel like we're comfortably supported I just wonder we talk about aging out the voters for the hall of fame. I wonder how we the aged out that support for that line of thinking at this point. Yeah. And listen, here's the other thing. They're not getting in the way, it's going. It's just it. They should get in. I think they should get in. Because you can't write the history of baseball about the steroid era. And you don't know who was and wasn't using it that point there. There are a couple of that have been proven to be user. But there are other people that you don't know these two were not proven yet. Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens they were not guys that miss time for this not anything like that..

And that's not dodgers. Biggest problem? I get it. But you can't have your best player. Can't be the guy you're questioning about his hustle. All the time.

Can't just be dismissed Machado is the guy who said his own words, I'm not a hustle guy, not Johnny hustle, and he's got an unlikeable personality Machado's personality being around him just a little bit.

I've always defended that key Shawn's in the TO's Randy mosses of the world. Lebron Kobe whatever. But I think that there needs to be looked like we talked about what Kershaw right and his agent some self awareness. Well, there's a cockiness with Machado. That comes also with being like a dirty player. He's stepping on a guy. The guy calls me. Like, that's not likeable. Yeah. But if is your guy you like it, I you know, what?

As I can see, yeah, it's, interesting as you think through this thing. About Nightingale be with us from USA. Today of course. The players have played today many did not play with him right very few did but. There are some that there, is, still around and universally the ones who did not play with. Them and just to play, today they admire the, accomplishments and they they don't get It back into the, politics or anything else and it's interesting that listen. To. One, hundred ten. Said when he saw bonds so how we choked up as a hitter he. Did that, that's the way he learned. To hit so bonds you know, really? Had a tremendous, influence on this next generation of people they they go wild explaining the I the bat swing flow of the the the game that, he had what I think that, speaks to you A us guys you saw on the couch and make comments about about what it was that he may have done or been able to do without, the help of a performance enhancing drug but, when a guy. Gets out, there and he and he's facing ninety five mile an hour, fastballs and these guys see how hard it is to hate it over that twenty four foot high wall and then they're saying they pull up videos and they watch bonds do it, when the guy who. Plays the game at this level was talking about how difficult it is. To, get around. On that inside pitch and bonds. Could get, around on that teaching not, hook it, I. Mean that was one of. The most incredible. Things, I ever saw but I. Think we, took advantage of it in myself as a kid definitely did. Because we'd never seen anything else in since.

It in, baseball Marty but the other part of the question and we. Do need the tiebreaker we've had a using. The last couple of times The inning, that, the giants hit a home run today sort of in honor of Barry. Bonds so they'd better hit one yeah what inning You could say zero and you. Know you could do that, so no home runs you could do that but in the spirit, of contest we. Won't be rooting. For you if. You. Say zero homeless we know you'll get razzed if you show up at the dinner we'll find out. We'll? Ask you that's very good, yeah? Remember the raffle number that, because if somebody guesses zero and the giants don't hit a home run right and they get. The score right I want to know, it but it's a score of the. Game and.
