"It's a hundred and forty years old played on the same size field saved for the height of the Mt. Is virtually the exact same game. And forget is like JD Martinez who don't bring a glove to the yard. But that's neither here nor there when it comes to a record about a playoff staff though for baseball. I gotta draw the line Rafael Devers had an incredible postseason. There have been guys in the modern era who have been young and had incredible postseasons, but they mean different things. So a couple of stats came out last night about Rafael Devers, I wanna hit on. He turns twenty two in five days October twenty fourth okay? Playoff RBI's, postseason RBI's and profession or in major league baseball before the age of twenty one Rafael Devers, now second all-time. He ties Miguel Cabrera for second all time and passes Mickey Mantle Mickey Mantle ten career RBI's before his twenty first birthday is twenty first birthday the thing that baffles me or before the age of twenty water. But this all must have been before the age of twenty two my apologies. Turns twenty to the twenty fourth so playoff RBI's before the age of twenty two Mickey Mantle with ten Denver's and Miguel Cabrera with twelve under Jones with fourteen now the Jones won while he only did it in a couple of postseasons. He was playing on some teams that went to the postseason every single season. So he had more opportunities. He was also playing in a in a postseason era where he had three rounds to do Miguel Cabrera to me a little bit more impressive because in two thousand and three when he got here. He was he was a young guy. Play with Jeff co nine and Dontrelle Willis and Juan Pierre only made that one playoff run. Now. I know he was traded a year and a half later to the Detroit Tigers, but he only had one big playoff run before his age twenty two season. So more impressive to be McGaw Cabrera put up those numbers as a twenty year old back in two thousand and three. Now, you wanna get really impressed Mickey Mantle this guy was only playing in World Series. There was no championships series. This guy would win win. The pennant go to the World Series and drive in runs. Dave ten RBI's before the age of twenty two. That's a pretty impressive note. The fact that the three guys who have passed it have played in the last twenty years. She told you everything you need to know about that Mickey Mantle stat, Dave. Yes, he had ten RBI at the age of twenty one at the age of twenty. Fifty four because he was injured when he was twenty two. So that's that's the number. I'm looking at here. David fifty four they didn't go to the World Series. Anyway, wouldn't matter. Right. Yeah. He didn't play right. He didn't Chris your your New York Giants were handled Vic words and the Cleveland Indians. That's what was going on. But in his age twenty one season. You're right there. That's what we're getting at here. So that's that's before the age of twenty two. These are those notes now for playoff home runs before the age of twenty two Bryce Harper with four Mickey Mantle with four Miguel Cabrera with four Andre Jones with four so all the guys you just heard on that list. Bryce Harper though has been hit his home runs with nobody on base. I guess though, Dave because he's not on the ten Rb Islas, but he is on the floor home run list before the age twenty two and then Rafael Devers now with three. So Rafael Devers by next season. If the Boston Red Sox make another push could solidify himself as one of the best young postseason players of all time. We'll have to take that with the modern era because clearly Mickey Mantle as a twenty one twenty two year old and this by the way, Mickey mantles been at the forefront of my mind. I got sick last weekend. I was out on Monday. Remember, Dave when I get sick. There's a movie I've been watching since I was a I guess it was my dad's showed it to me. It's the Billy crystal sixty one Barry pepper Thomas. Jane incredible movie, one of the best HBO made movies, in my opinion. One of the better baseball movies ever buried pepper played Dale Earnhardt senior in the Dale Earnhardt number three movies, dude..

"I tell you what man I buried dude in saving private Ryan berry pepper, just as the sniper an incredible incredible actor, and I can't think of Roger marriage now without thinking Barry pepper Thomas. Jane, dude, looks to me exactly. Like Mickey Mantle. There's a beautiful Mickey Mantle anyway. A couple of notes here. The Mickey mantel thing came up. And then the other note was that Alex Cora rookie manager Ralph up that was his first season two in in nineteen sixty one. Of course, the former New York Yankee himself you played played into the the early fifties probably played alongside male actually before he started managing that team. So so distant cool notes from last night as we get ready, and we had a little discussion with Jason Middleton out in the hallway. So we get ready for the Milwaukee Brewers. Try to stave off the the LA dodgers will get another couple of chances at it. Hey, but you do get this something that you cannot miss when it comes to professional sports a game six or a game seven. I was always a firm believer that if you win game six you win game seven until the San Francisco Giants. Reputed that back in two thousand fourteen the got what thing game six and he come back and you win game seven different thing last year to thought the exact same thing and the dodgers ended up losing game seven days. And you know, you talk about the heating and the RBI zap in postseason same with pitching. You look at the all time postseason winner Whitey Ford did all that in the World Series too. I think he's got ten wins. So when you win stuff in the wild card in the first round, the second round of the same thing. Yeah. And it's much you make a good point there. Dave, it's not just that. You got more opportunities. You get more opportunities in the modern era. And there's something to be said about that. I mean, we're talking postseason stage here we're talking playing for championship to twice David price. What we're saying? It is I twelve playoff starts had never had a scoreless out, and he was owing nine in his first eleven postseason starts an era over five. This guy was not winning ball games on the big stage when you can step up and do it at any level of the postseason. It's big. But when you think to Mickey Mantle doing it all in the World Series or Whitey Ford getting. All these winds in the World Series. And Dave, I think Whitey Ford still all-time World Series winner. But I think as far as Yankee, and maybe postseason, I know that Andy Pettitte is up there certainly for handers because his whole career with the New York Yankees played played. I mean almost every single year they were in the postseason with those you know, the ninety six World Series run. And then into the two thousands and whatnot. Andy Pettitte was playing almost three rounds of postseason every single year. The irony of it is to we think a Whitey Ford. The winning is he's just ten and eight in the World Series and Mickey Mantle only hit two fifty five. So you think of like all these great World Series performers to fifty five and a World Series is pretty pedestrian. Yeah. We need a little bit more probably from just in the LCS here from Christian yelich after. No, Ocoee, brewers are going to wanna shot and you're right about Ralph Halki played with Mickey Mantle for four years before he managed there you go. How about that? My nineteen fifties. New York Yankee knowledge. All right. We'll switch gears here. Lebron James made his debut last night. Sucks. Lose the brunt. Didn't seem terribly upset. We didn't get sort of a vintage LeBron quote though, and we'll be keeping track of these all season long saying that they're going to need a little bit more time for them to gel. I won't tell you what. The comparison was little silly little ridiculous for LeBron. The dudes lighting candles that he's trying to set to move in the locker room. We'll talk about it next in the leadoff spot on the sports leader NBR's, San Francisco, a Cumulus station..
