"Any like I like. You said on baseball tonight around sportscenter. The next morning whatever it might be glimpses of Tony Fernandes making just obscene plays up the middle and having that little weird submarine throat. We used to do that goofing around out in the street when we were just playing catch up all the first base and we would that ridiculous throw that like he has underarm. Things submarine in a recent interview. I just saw with Jesse Barfield calling these flipper because pro so I could see nicknamed stock you know and Yeah I mean like like I said these are the this was the the media period of of bluejays success and he was a huge part of that like. I said that we were talking off air. He has I think three franchise records to the Blue Jays won't say it's hits is a triples as well and runs and scoring. I believe Okay Yeah Yeah hits singles and triples. Yeah I it's it's you know that's something that's GonNa be at simple bluejays lower forever. Obviously until someone takes it over but like does three alone being a four time. Lujan being pivotal to winning The one thousand nine hundred three world series. I'll just toss this to you. Do you think is number as worthy being retired because we were just mentioned You know he needs to be on it appropriately. Is that what you had in mind? What I have in mind at least at minimum is really oddly convenient that they have the powder blue uniforms which is where Tony Fernandez made his name as a J. Those onesie uniforms pullover ones that they had back in the day. I feel like there's on putting something on that Jersey this year regardless if it is a retired number. I'm honoring Tony Fernandez one way or the other this year. I'm putting the like the number one patch with me spot or something on the jerseys this year. And I just think that that's the best way to honor him. He's been such a big part of this franchise and it's not even just the plays in all the hits and all that stuff but this is a guy that when he came back every time he was teaching other generations of Blue Jays players how to play the game. There's there was a great tweet from Jose Cruz junior of all people that I just even know we had you know twitter account other than the fact that fell off the planet. A little bit after leaving. Espn but he just the fact that he more or less out of his way to tell everybody that Tony Fernandez taught him how to play the game properly in Toronto. That's the kind of character. And if you're going to have a face a franchise it'd be somebody like this. Tony Fernandez is a guy that is the perfect poster child for a franchise in how you play the game. Would you agree that? He's the greatest Bucci shortstop of all time. I don't know how much there's even a big argument. I'm not saying that they haven't had good shortstops over the years. But yeah non comparison level. Because it's just so many gold gloves. Fifteen hundred of his. You know two thousand something hits out. Were in a blue uniform. So it's crazy but in all reality I think I think he's still one of the highest war rated players in the whole system already five four three. Yeah yeah slightly. Nuts as far as in a blue uniform. I'm looking at the baseball. Reference suffering is the third highest ranked war through all Toronto Blue Jays players. Ever and only behind Dave Steve Roy Halladay. Yeah and if you're talking franchise guys. Those guys have been the poster child for generations. I think Tony Fernandez is in that. Same Ballpark Yeah I WOULD. You know right now obviously Revert Alamar Roy Halladay. Those numbers are a day. The only bluejays numbers that are retired. I'll former bluejays. Obviously Jackie Robinson is in there too obviously but You know now it'd be the time maybe it's I don't know how controversial maybe that's the wrong word. I'm looking for but how Argumentative or how difficult. I guess I should say this will be FIAMMA GUCCI He's dawning number one right now. But you know given the circumstances and maybe toss a couple extra hundred thousand dollars or whatever. Maybe we'll put up a stink about it here. Amundsen thing like how you let Marian Rivera and company where the number and told they're done being yeah J. or something. Yeah something like that. At least it's not it's still the classy tip of the NA era tip of the hat to a class act insanely good player but somebody else that has this future with the Blue Jays. That is going to probably be pretty damn good himself. Yeah Yeah we don't even know the the ceiling that he's going to hit but you know to I don't really have more to say about Fernandez. It's super unfortunate Again if fans you are on familiar with him and you know. You haven't seen a lot of footage. I I highly suggest you do so. And I can't stress the ninety three world series man. Yeah get the DVD. Seriously you can go on Amazon right now. Probably get that. Dvd No bullshit. Yeah easy easy five bucks. We want to say the last time I watched it. It was on Youtube. Okay like can endure interviews with him within the documentary of the ninety two ninety three world series. You can get your hands on that easy I highly goes. He was a catalyst for that ninety three team a team. That was already really that good but not the best at the time and getting ignited a mission from Tony Fernandez. Ninety six games into the season. It's insane in the guy that literally had nine rb is in nineteen ninety. Three's world series against the phillies ridiculous ridiculous. It's amazing that Paul Molitor got the world series. Mvp had to show you. How much more ridiculous Paul? Wasn't that worlds. Yes Yeah Oh you're so because modern doesn't pop a few home runs in. This is the bane of existence for Curt Schilling and company. Guess yes and hiding behind towels and everything but I do have to mention one last thing as far as Tony Fernandes's rate career went. He finally got a crowning moment other than the fact that he got the ring in one thousand nine hundred ninety three hits the game winning home. Run for the Cleveland Indians against the Baltimore. Orioles in the nineteen ninety-seven AL CS pushes them to the world series. And a really fun tidbit that you and I were talking about before the show Tyler Kettner of the actual New York Times tweeted out today that Tony a picture of Tony Fernandez hitting that home run and celebrating was the first color photo on the New York Times in one thousand nine hundred seven. You know. It's called stop random ever. That's forever front cover Indian celebrating and going to the world series. That's pretty damn cool stuff when you have number one Tony Fernandez right. Their chances are you could probably find that on Ebay speaking of finding things on Ebay and all over the Internet. I I if you WANNA be a guy that plays shortstop in major league baseball or even just in college and high school wherever kids. This is a guy who is fundamentally insanely good watching him on a baseball diamond. At every facet of his game and severely underrated and for a guy that had that kind of career were Adam. I'm wondering with the Fund that's going on with the baseball hall. Fame and everything if he has an outside darkhorse candidate kind of thing for the Veterans Committee and now never know is a guy hit two eighty eight for his career won. Five gold. Gloves Stole Two hundred. Forty six bases. You could make an argument. That he's just as good as some of the guys have gotten on that Veterans Committee vote vote. Yeah Yeah I wouldn't shock me but Outside standards have sort of slumped a little bit. It's not what it used to be so Maybe this is something that can happen. But I'm not not necessarily holding my breath and that's no disrespect to him. It's just worth mentioning. Oh that's for sure. Because there are plenty of his friends entered his. He's the best shortstop I've ever seen play right right. So and the fact that he finishes with his career with the Blue Jays at the age of thirty nine and through forty eight games still bats. Four hundred are bat three hundred. Who Does that? I've Senate so anyway Tony. Fernandez unfortunately is no longer with us at the age of fifty seven but he will be near and dear to any major league baseball fans expecially. Blue Jays fans for basically as far as existence in memory goes on. Our franchises is still good. I think so good stuff. Yeah always good to have a good Tony. Fernandes memory absolutely absolute- anyway. We got some weird fun for the Blue Jays. Fans this evening and we'll and on some more ranting about terribleness with regular major league baseball things but I don't want to hack everything what we just did. Good so we're going to talk twenty twenty season projections and how they fall within. Last year's major league baseball stats for the Blue Jays and looking at these Toronto Blue Jays projections were going by the fan grass steamer Projections right now because a lot of the other ones haven't come out so this is almost like a way too early prediction. Show but Adam. Are you shocked? By what we're seeing on the steamer lists as far as who is on offense going to be the best bluejays a little bit. I mean we just talked about it for all right so we're going to start with And by me. We just talked about this. We just talked about the software if we're going to talk with you know the the Dinger's ray and that's what everybody wants to gravitate towards Chick Lonzo Ball Todd and Greg Maddux chicks dig Reynaud Grischuk and apparently he supposed to be hitting the most according to these projections going to be hitting. The most home runs out of anybody else on the team with thirty. And this is of guys like Vlad Ahead of guys like you know whether you WanNa believe it or not Travis Shaw with you. Want to believe in the bounceback even Laura's career he's Hernandez who asked you last year right. Yes strikeout machine Oscar Anne and has never like this. It's It baffles that rental gray chuck is their favourite hit. Thirty home runs. I just I'm not I I just can't get there. It seems odd especially when they're literally calling that he's going to be in that same. Pretty much ballpark. Strikeout range. That is I just think it's hilarious. We bought a you brought up Randall. Grischuk and Task Hernandez being married at the HIP and strike outs. And they are literally one strikeout. Apart from each other at one forty eight and one forty-seven objections. The thing that I think shocks even more on that number though Kevin Zhou is predicted to have the most strikeouts of any blue Jay. This season I do not agree with that at all. I don't know how that happens. He's a straight guy too but he's not in that same ballpark. I think is tail. And this is a guy that in my opinion and I've said this to you before and I've I've not been shy about this opinion. He has for me the most sound approach at the plate. Out of anybody on the team. I just love it I just. I love his stance. I love swimming. I Love I just think that you know. It's the apple. Doesn't fall far from the tree. And I think that maybe last year was a result of rookie jitters that certainly possible. I don't see him striking out. One hundred and fifty plus times. I just don't see it and I think that you know with with a little bit more maturity in a little bit more experience under his belt. That should trickle though. Yeah now the mentioned on the same projections. They something give him his due on Walks. Eighty to eat the Blue Jays as well. It's a little backwards. I don't know how the math works out. But he's also allegedly to thirty four hitter. I just don't see that happening to I figure at the end of the season at a minimum Kevin Bijou is gonNA look very similar to random. Grischuk offense numbers. Maybe not as many home runs. I think those double those home runs a League over in the doubles and the RBI's runs scored a look about the same. Yes yeah I completely agree and you know maybe this is a matter of him playing like a lot. More Games is why the strikeouts are projected to be up from last year But still I don't see him being this quote unquote poor For full season. Give this kid a full season. I think he's going to start to crack his potential and I think he's going to be something a little bit. I opening like for me. He was I know Boba Fett Soda. Sold a show towards the end of the season last year and I don't WanNa see people. Were disappointed in. Vlad but hype was a little bit too much But for me you know off the pad crazy right But for me. Cavallo was a breath of fresh air. I loved watching him play and just the eye test alone suggest to me that he's going to be better than what he produced last year..

hall fame twenty twenty ballot is out eighteen new comers on it including Derek Jeter what will bury bonds due in this go around two years ago fifty six point four percent of the vote for bonds that only up to fifty nine point one percent last year and we will find out July twenty six of the whole fame induction ceremony December eighth is the official vote those your half past six months you're listening to it GKB Tolbert Krueger in Brooks live from the Big Island of Hawaii sponsored by western have pulled a beach resort on KNBR one oh four five eight six eight the sports yeah that's right that's right the Seahawks have won two I don't know what what jog in my head and that's sometimes an advantage and sometimes it is sometimes just don't come off the by very well and we'll see this week but I like that it's been flexing the prime time this late in the season with the game that hot against an opponent of the forty Niners caliber I know the Packers have rookie head coach Matt the Florida flower live le let loser but boy I would I'd be surprised if it came out flat but you later you're right we've seen that you know quite a few times it was something that the letters had overcome this year and they did obviously are coming out of the bye week flat I would think having a by late in the season Wallace are optimal if you can get to it in your in good shape record was you take a you relish it but knowing that you got the week off before the stress rugs so I I've I would think you know just reflexively that would be advantage Packers but I'm so that's something we could get through to give the go give the guy a four years three years that means it is track record is because some code are good this is the first years I have no idea what kind of adjustments he's gonna make with the practices look like like a lot of times you can put in some new wrinkles in there too and I would expect for a game of this magnitude they might have a few wrinkles as they have been shown so far this year maybe plays a practice and in camp that they break out or maybe just a few rate like they could help the two to Fontaine's get healthier yeah like everybody thinks like wrinkles are all new things that could you just be at the same play on the other one guy going this way goes the other way right you Duke somebody just something like that so that'll be interesting again I know I keep number done and I keep saying the same things but this is not the I can't wait to watch this game and then the next week I can't wait to watch take ME do these are fun games of especially Packers in the Niners just the helmets being on the field together the history that they've had the playoff games going back to the nineties I mean they did this is fun stuff to build a watch these teams and both of them are good and this is like a meaningful game it's not a playoff game but it it it's it's for regular clothes you can get to a playoff game because this will be a tiebreaker but one of the which I think I was about to say so this is that this is like these are the top two seeds yeah it's it's got some juice to it Larry random down again we'll see things as they stand now they were written down to us during a break I mean it's not a playoff game because it's not a winner take all situation but you lose this game because the letters worst case scenario you lose this game at home and and that means that you have to possibly go to Green Bay you don't think about you know maybe this cave I'm not gonna be simplistic here yeah more football the play put you might think about this when you're a Green Bay freezing your kid up you buy thank you doctor we probably would be here if we would have won that game you know at at Levi's would was tempered by now I read to me these next three games but especially the book inspector David the saints Cape not these are playoff games because they affect your playoff seeding they're big I love Aaron Rodgers by the way many you hate to see him going up against your team but you love watching him anytime the thing that strikes me about Aaron Rodgers guys is when they show us the quarterback cam basically from the end zone and you get the up close on his face and he's he's doing his check downs and he's looking at the coverage in these regions safeties he looks bored to death like he's like or I it looks like he's checking out a book in the library just like other guys a kind of frazzled in kinda nervous he just is like in total command he's pointing east shifting his name doesn't look at all flustered Tom I just gonna wondered if you ever played against anybody in the in in the NBA where you just look at a man you just like wow the poise and this guy because anything anybody at all that reminds you of Rogers as far as just in two whole controls remove all been there done that the most unflappable guy in the game we all the superstars are like that bird magic Jordan all those guys that again eight and then I say this every sport has those guys for the game slows down form and Rogers is one of those guys Brady is one of those guys breeze one of those guys with the game to slow form they did see everything it's like they know they know what's going to happen they've seen it they understand what the route is going to be the understand how to beat it they always beat it of course they don't beat it bid but there I would imagine they're very rarely surprised by something they don't look out there go oh man didn't expect that OR tool well we're that guy come from they know the pressure point every day they're written safeties movement in a row they get it that's it they get it there there there the guy that if you're gonna leave one guy on cover to rush him they know he's coming to get you ready before they get so that I could be spread like oh crap was this guy doing my face like they get that stuff but again they do it all the time now you can't do it all time but the game this Lowell's form thank you rookies I always talk about the game we would do password like damn I wish is that slow down just a little bit like either a you want to get rid of the ball to quit once you the ball too quick he does want to everything too quick and then after you start to see Stephanie get like into the game like okay complex in I'm good I can take a deep breath and I don't get a rush everything but those guys been around so long man I guarantee the games like in slow motion for so you have your Rogers who does have a very you know almost laconic bored look on his face when he's going throw his pre snap reads and positioning players do you have the complete opposite of Philip rivers who looks like he's on angel dust when he's back there flopping around you we go see him about a football is the chiefs and I you know I I I do get frustrated watching the charges because they can be a tough watch but plated chiefs I think this will be a hot David I so looking forward to in Mexico in Mexico did I move many call lots of Philip rivers Cussen forces way through a football game I get a headache after use leave them or in a two point no because he's everything that Rogers is not and as a group they have a real was always considered for how we go to people and that is Philip rivers the difference between Dan Marino Philip rivers although there are many the one difference is obvious Dan Marino lower ward boat had a pretty spirals in history of football Philip rivers us so much we watch involves a WDBJ operators manner I don't know how that guy went to a do you want college it has been in the league as long as he has with a football that comes out of his head that okay it's a good shot put it is a very big single three quarters to little orders by yourself but he's it's interesting you you bring him up because they've debatable as in his career is not over but is he a hall of Famer he hasn't had the success like Eli manning I was just thank you Tom got the two super bowls and they talked about I think in that class it was a lie Ben Roethlisberger and and Philip rivers and and and Ben has a two super bowls Philip rivers I bet you if you look at his numbers are probably better they're probably better during the regular season but he does not have the post season six as of the of those two guys and it's interesting because you live manning and I take nothing away from him they made some incredible throws in those super bowls but that that the defense of light was a bigger factor than winning super bowls and anyway many of water the Superbowl yeah so that that it the because I was used to argue with my friends as a big Camerino fan even though yelled everybody I was like whoa look I know Joe Montana is better but what would then Marino benefit a play for the forty Niners job done a bit of play for the the dolphin would like that a running game yeah anything I may just football like one of the greatest of all time Joe may be the greatest of all time Abraham Brady unite is though that some others in there but man like some guys get better coaching some guys have better defenses like remember the first year Tom Brady won the Superbowl that was all the fence they get I'm not gonna say did make plays because you have to but the wasn't Tom Brady today it was like check down let's be careful let's run the ball with beat the rams up on defense and any kind of grew into being the guy where he's like fifty touchdowns like three and fifty or the game band we're good to go but he played for hall of fame coach yeah include incredibly Marino and a lot of great defenses but Marino never had a defense that that much of a.

"I now have to take this bottom of the hour, excoriate our guy cliff because in the in the break, sometimes the best show, we do is in the commercials. We were talking about how the nineties were a different time, and sort of learning perspective of some of the younger members of the staff senior Mike about what's going on in the out of says, a speaker that my comeback with some music from the nineties. No that was dire straits from the nineteen eighties came back clip. Willing to acknowledge things happened before you were born when it's that far back in the life of clip, they all just kind of plan that was that was the dying days eighty sixty eighty. Eighties so much from the nineties. I appreciate the effort was my hardest full. Here's a one in the first column. So how much does it really matter? That's the way back to a major league baseball is trying to tell me right now. Now trying to tell me the my childhood doesn't matter sports, basically, they're trying to tell me you weren't getting new league segway king right here. Syncope and told by major league baseball, but my childhood is that your air as part of watching baseball has been wiped out. So that's what we're talking about. Now with straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts. We had the twenty one thousand nine hall of fame class go in on Tuesday night. And it was marvelous. It was glorious Mariano Rivera the first unanimous, Edgar Martinez A D H gets in Mike Mussina who never won a Cy Young gets in and ROY halladay who was brilliant albeit for shorter period of time than you normally think of hall of famers. He gets in. But the people that didn't get in again. And it looks like they're not going to get in based on the way, the vote is going berry bonds and Roger Clements two of the most dominant pitchers and players in major league baseball history, especially in their era because both have been painted with broad brush, a performance enhancing drugs. And again, they were in the high fifties. Both in the fifty nine percent, how need seventy-five basically, they need another sixty five to seventy votes in. This thing over the next three years. And there are those that don't think they're going to get that for for two guys that never tested positive for bond says he took it unknowingly Roger Clemens scream from the highest mountain top that he did not fun going back and watching those videos of baseball players testifying before congress it before congress RAFI Palmera, just pointing congress, you know, and then that coming back to bite him like by proof, though, actually there, and you know, Sammy Sosa all of a sudden, you know, the the broken English that goes all of a sudden can't understand some things it was somewhat amazing. That's what what went on there. But we know all our thoughts here, they they should be in the hall of fame. But how is it going to affect things going forward because they're not the only two guys that either a tested positive for PD's, which they didn't or have been associated with PD? They just happened to be two of the best players of all time associated with the association with Clemens. Is that trainer says he kept the needle and all that stuff every association opposite with? Barry Bonds was that trial Kimber the name of the belco belco. Yeah, we're the cream and the clear he says it was took. It was it was unknowingly flaxseed oil, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, your head grew. Okay. But the one who has failed the test. And as admitted that he used was Alex Rodriguez and Alex Rodriguez went on with I take and he was asked the first of all to make the case for bonds and Clemens. And I thought the answer he gave was really really interesting. I'm not gonna make a case for myself. And it's hard for me. Stephen as to speak about berry, and Roger can barely speak for myself. But what I will tell you this. I mean, look, I it's such a moving target. The hall of fame is the most prestigious hall of fame still of all time of any sports. And when I when we have a day where I have three really good, friends and Mariano in Edgar Messina getting in. There's a small part of me that feels that I got in. And I can't make a case I made my case when I made my mistakes, and I'm going to have to lay in my bed. I'm still hoping I can maybe one day get in. Listen, you, obviously when he was going through it Alex went through a lot to try and deny that it ever happened. It was suing people who suing the shoe in the eighties. Yeah. And he went after some reporters. I mean, it was bad. It was bad. But this version of Eric Alex Rodriguez saying, look, I'm owning up to it as nothing I can do about it. Now, I made my bed I'm going to have to lane. And I thought that was a pretty interesting and very introspective answer. Right. So I'll ask this question while you're human beings who vote you may not like the way people go about it. Should it make a difference? Should it make a difference that if you think Roger Clemens did it? He's denying dying denying should it. Make a difference at any never tested positive. Should it make a difference at a rod got busted? I mean. So what are you? You know, some people have said, I don't know how it got there. But he's saying listen, I made my own bed should that make a difference as far as voters are concerned? I don't think so. But I think baseball and the people that vote for the baseball hall. Fame. Enjoy the idea of contrition and being catered to. I think this is a group that appreciates that someone would care enough about their opinions in order to go out of his way the way rod has and that's not to say, it's just solely forbid for this. You hear any interview a Rod's done really since the time. He retired. It has been about the contrition for what he is how it changed him as a person in more ways than just the baseball sense. But that being said, I think that there's a group that's gonna like to hear this out of the voters not enough to put him in. But they're going to like it, look, here's the deal. And I think what will Cain said on that. In bump. We started the segment that makes a lot of sense. If you're going to take out people that you believe used even though you didn't prove it or did test positive, and and and were caught like Alex Rodriguez. You're going to have to say to yourself. Well, because I know about those people they're not in. But there is a large number of people who we don't know about that probably did use that are already in. So the point or going to be in. So the point is where do you want to draw this mythical line on a certain generation of sports? It's a joke. I mean, well, there's a couple of things understand during the quote unquote, steroid era when everybody talked about how baseball knew about it. But didn't wanna say anything because look what was going on who is running the show, then but sealer sealing in the hall of fame amazing how that happened and for people out there to be to be so again head in the sand do realize people before the so called steroid era steroids were being used yell. It doesn't matter just when it was right before it was tested for white. When it started to get tested for you on the NFL. They started testing what the late eighties early nineties steroids were used before that by players they existed, and you know, what baseball players used them before. The steroid areas. Well, it happened. So now, we're picking and I get it because you can say, okay, he tested positive for it. If you wanna use that as more as a marker. But now, it's like, wait. He's got acne on his back all his head guy. Little bigger. Whoa. I need to be on his head got a lot. Everybody is just putting it in the box. This these these years right here. This is Sarah era, crinkle it up and throw it out people come on. You can't be that dumb. Well, I mean come on. I think people aren't that dumb? They just want. They feel like it's their wall to die on before. They even the steroid thing. Do you remember Greenies? What Greenies listen, I bring this up all the time train people just want to laugh at me is they don't do as much as steroids skull. What's your line? Yeah. What's your line? Is something helps you and your statistics. That's exactly right. Now, we laugh at the low man that were bulls of that in the locker people are just a handful. Crazy guy. Those were hey, I mean, fine and meant nothing. That's the part. You're not taking it because you don't think it's not coming anything. So if you're okay with those guys that were swollen those things like they were Eminem. You have to be okay with the other stuff. Otherwise to Will's point. You're one hundred percent, right. You are being hypocrite. You're just choosing to be hypocrite and.

"Coming up an update on Peter Schrager, stealing one of our questions that we posed on Monday. There's an I team report. And it's it's pretty brutal. Pretty pretty intense. You know, as journalists we shouldn't bite Peter Schrager on to ask him about stealing one of our ideas on this show. Is this the first time that he's stolen goes? Maybe he'd like to admit something else. We're combing through his Twitter. See this is how it starts all of a sudden breadcrumbs, and then we're gonna find out did Peter Schrager win a sports EMMY or something because they may just throw it out there. All righty gets more phone calls coming up. He's Bob Costas major league. Baseball network analyst hall of fame broadcaster joining us on the program. Bob, good morning. How are ya? Hello, dan. How are you? I'm now caught up in this whole kerfluffle between Mr. Schrager. You know, sometimes you sample musicians talk about sampling or borrowing we used to call it stealing. But I just we say something on Monday and ends up on the football network on Wednesday. And we have we have spies out there. Bob journalist. Yeah. I was just speaking before Todd called me. I was just speaking with Bruce corn, whom you know, NBC and Bruce was praising Tom Ritchie's work yesterday and the coverage of the hall of fame elections and Thomas a particular knack for this. He's not just knowledgeable, but he's really a graceful writer, and he wrote this piece about Mariana Rivera. And he said that eleven earned runs were scored upon him in all of the postseason appearances that he made fewer runs than men who walked on the moon. Yes. Okay. Then this morning on a show, which shall not be mentioned. They presented that as if it were stat they just discover. It happens all the time. Dan, I know what happens to those of us who are at a higher level. They don't steal from those who occupy the lower rungs on the ladder. Considerate accomplished. Dan. All I know we were having fun with Ben. But it feels like it's okay now, you just you don't have to attribute anything to anybody anymore. Right. Of course. Not all right. When you guys were waiting with your pitchforks. As you guys mentioned that somebody was not gonna vote for Marianna Rivera. You almost sounded disappointed that there wasn't some old curmudgeon who said, no, I'm not gonna put him on because I didn't vote for Babe Ruth. Yeah. That's pretty much it, but that was the final tally twenty five zero curmudgeon. But if there had been one or two, then we will eventually would have discovered who they were and they would have to give an account of themselves. But that doesn't happen. You know, the one hundred percent what does the one hundred per cent me if you're Marianna Rivera. And you're the first one is he the most perfect player at his position in baseball. Like, how would you quantify this? If at all. I think it shows that there is no argument. No credible argument of any kind to be made against him next year. When Derek Jeter will go in perhaps unanimous, certainly nearly unanimous someone could make the case you or I wouldn't buy it. But they could make the case. Well, if Cal Ripken wasn't unanimous meter plays the same position, then why should be unanimous. I'm gonna withhold my vote. But there is absolutely no dispute that Marianna Ribera is the greatest closer in baseball history. You could make a case who's the best player who's the best outfielder. It was the best catcher, we might all feel that there's a clear cut choice and some of those cases. But there's an argument for somebody else. There's no arguments it'd be made for anybody else when it comes to Rivera atop closer, your phone's pop and a little bit. Give us a second. Yeah. Fritzy, if you'll jump on with Bob, and we'll see if we can clear that up a little bit. I was looking at Edgar Martinez. I mentioned that the. Fourth highest on base percentage of a right handed hitter. In the history of the game. Mike mussina? It was sort of lost in the Clemens petted. Like, you just sort of went. Oh, yeah. He won twenty games. And then retired. I think two pitchers in the history of game had done that sandy Colfax due to injury retired. He might have gone one twenty six or twenty seven games last year. And then retires and new sina say might won twenty games. But I was looking at museum is numbers two hundred and fifty wins in two thousand five hundred strikeouts. You know, it's a short list of you know, some of these. I think these are guys I'm glad they got in. But I think aside from Marianna you sort of forgot about how great they were in that even includes ROY halladay. Bob's back with us as you were saying, Bob. Yeah. My death. Louis comments. Apparently, we're lost it up. I point to your question about Rivera was that let's say Derek Jeter who is going to get an easily next year could be unanimous of it is in. It'll just be a few votes. Keep it from being anonymous and the only possible argument against him. But it is a possible argument as well if Cal Ripken wasn't unanimous, then I'm not gonna vote for Derek jeeter because he played the same position. But in the case of Mariano Rivera. There is absolutely no argument to be made for anybody else as the greatest closer of all time. You want to argue Willie Mays and Hank Aaron you can make a credible case for either one they were both phenomenally great. But there's absolutely no discussion about anybody else when it comes to who's the best closer of all time. And I think that along with changing voting patterns is what made it possible from areana to go and sweet the board. Do we have too much analytics in baseball? In some quarters. Yes. In some quarters. It's look if I can show you that. This guy's war is equal to somebody who you knew at first glance was a hall of Famer. Well, then that guy is just as good as this guy. Who's among the true baseball immortals? I think are really important both for building teams and making decisions in the present day and also for considering players starkly in considering them for the hall of fame. I'm not saying they don't count they count a lot. But they're not always definitive. They're not the be all and end all and if you think the whole thing can be decided by what a computer spits out. Then I think you're taking the heartbeat out of the game. I know that you guys have talked about this the last couple of days on MLB network. And you're talking about bonds and Clemens being on the clock. And now we have a three year window of them trying to get in during their years of eligiblity. I'm wondering if a rod will eventually be the first steroid tainted player known steroid tainted player into the baseball hall. Fame. Well, we didn't discuss that on the air yesterday. But a number of the guys, and I won't name them. A number of the guys former players say there is no way that a rod will ever get in because he used PHD's when there was testing when there was punishment when everything had been caught a fide when the dust cleared with the steroid era and everybody got what was going on? And so despite the fact that it's pretty clear to me that he would have been one of the greatest players of all time if he never had anything more potent than a protein, shake he's going to have a tough a tough climb. You look at Manny Ramirez now Manny Ramirez was not nearly as good an all round players. Alex rodriguez. What works against Manny is not just the three failed drug tests. But the fact that he openly quit on two teams. No question about it. The fact that he was an indifferent fielder and a lousy base runner. So you can't make a case that it was a great all around player. You can't make a case. Who is one of the best right handed hitters of the modern era, but the connection to PD's plus the other deficits takes him out of it. So he's not an exact match for a rod, but he did use PD's after there were rules in place. And I think the same thing is going to going to hamper A rod a bit. He's a better player with better accomplishment. So I'm sure his vote totals will be higher than Ramirez. But can he get the seventy five we'll see Harold Reynolds said yesterday weren't on the air. But he said look he comes on the ballot in three years. You got ten years on the ballot. You're talking thirteen years out and younger and younger voters who might not have the same gut feeling about the steroid era that you and I do so a rod has a chance because stuff is going to be in the rear view mirror by the time is eligiblity runs out. Do think bonds and Clemens get in the next three years. You know, I really thought so until yesterday Peter gammons, and I were talking and we both thought bonds and Clemens would get at least to the low sixties and probably to the mid sixty s based on the substantial. Jump. They took a year ago, but the only moved up two percentage points to around fifty nine percent now they have three years left. And here are the things that could help them four players get in. Plus, Fred McGriff who probably didn't get Justice. Fred McGriff comes off because this was his tenth year of eligibility. That's five slots next year. Derek Jeter is the only player worthy of consideration. And in twenty twenty one. There is no additional player worthy of consideration. So that clears the logjam out and during that period of time a few more younger voters will come in. And his tomor duty pointed out yesterday. Those who become eligible to vote in the last several years are trending at eighty five percent. Yes. For bonds and Clemens and it's possible. We can't read their minds, but it's possible that some of the old line voters are gonna come around on the tenth year. And that they're thinking was I'm gonna make them sweat. I'm gonna hold my nose and vote for them in the tenth year, but not a moment before. And if those combinations come together more space on the ballot more new voters old guys coming around, maybe they echo for seventy five, but they're not gonna get eighty percent or anything close to it. Are we being objective with Curt Schilling? No, I've been saying forever that he should have gone in on the first ballot. Curt Schilling has the best strikeout-to-walk ratio of any pitcher whose career started after nineteen hundred. He has a phenomenal postseason record eleven into the low ERA, but also conic moments on top of it hitch dwell in four World Series three of which his team won. It just any finish a second Cy Young voting three times. And the only reason didn't win one or two is that Greg Maddux. And Randy Johnson won those Cy youngs. That the stuff that he says on Twitter or the things that rub people the wrong way are completely irrelevant. What matters is what he did on the field. And Curt Schilling should have been in the hall of fame years ago. And I wonder if he contributed to MSNBC if he was his far left Izzy as far, right? Would he be in the hall of fame? Oddly. I don't think it would hurt him as much. Yeah. But it's a relevant either way. Oh, I know. I that's why it drives me crazy. When like I just look at Curcio. I don't agree with Curt Schilling..

Those were the top four vote-getters not particularly in that order. But from the Associated Press, which every year has the AP male athlete of the year. Lebron James one for the third time in his career. You think it's ridiculous that LeBron James was the AP male athlete of the year. What what what did he do to deserve? What are they doing? Tell me everything in sports steady. Did I know everything I think they kind of wait a little bit with that. But also, he shouldn't they should it. Thank you athlete.

Would it be going off of that list? I'll go off of that list. Okay. I think at the top should easily be Alex Ovechkin and Mookie Betts based off championships. And they would have best players on their team Yuki butts MVP, so Andrea dollar would have a better chance of winning this. Then LeBron James because his team won. You got you to also factor in their performance. Obviously. Yes, LeBron James hell of athlete he performs at that's the understatement of the years. I've basketball pretty good. You know, how I feel about them? He's a hell of an athlete headed going off the two thousand eighteen had arguably his best year, but he didn't win. He didn't win any the other guys one. He took a crap bag. Four straight games. Yes. I get that. I understand. Brady life listenable. How? He's done the list either. They went with Patrick Mahomes kinda surprised. Yeah. That was surprising. That means a shoe in for the MVP this year as law player on their right? Just looking at Mookie Betts, Mookie Betts alone. Two guys had great seasons. In Mookie Betts in the Bronx one one MVP award. One didn't win the most valuable who is better in the postseason. Mookie betts. Lebron James wasn't even close. Okay. But performance wise. More home runs than move. Fettes? Mookie Betts was the MVP of his league running to get that Mookie Betts team won the championship. Lebron didn't do that. What are we basing this award off of just because it's LeBron and the two other times he's three now. But I mean, he's deserved these awards. Right. I mean, he's as jet would say jet doesn't like LeBron James. Lebron James has been the best player in the sport. He should not have been. I'm working. Bets are Alexander Ovechkin. Yes. Okay. Pick one pick one lewke bets. Okay. Mookie Betts should be the Associated Press male athlete of the year. I yield my time the Christian. No, I would say, you know, if you have to go. If you have to go by that stupid list. Yeah. Mookie Betts is the guy, but I think will AP's dumb dumb. You told me I looked up and going back to that list. But if I had to choose my own person of my man of the year, there's only one real answer say Steph curry to this question, I'm not gonna say Steph curry. No, you jump to conclusion. See what happens if you make an asset yourself, not me, but you jump to conclusions. But what who I was gonna say was, and you may not know this man because well, you may be a little dumped onto John Schuster. Joe Johnson Shuster is John Schuster sounds like a guy was the captain of the US curling t the Olympics. They won gold. They shocked the world they weren't even supposed to metal and they want gold. So he deserves he deserves it over at me. He deserves man of the athlete of the year over LeBron James Brady SPN or something. No. That's why yielded. Okay. John. No. He deserves it more than LeBron. Okay. I actually related the Simon. And this is this is not to be crap. American hero, Sal. I'm not trying to crap on the signal. No, I'm prepping on the together. What these four guys horse? Oh god. Five finish fifth. Okay. That's great. Why is the jockey on the jockeys doing stuff to us runs? The Justice completes. The jockey's one hitting his hitting them in the asteroid. Enough to hit them all that much. Spread to run with the jockey some recent winners. Steph curry. In two thousand fifteen last year was Jose altuve, which I thought was. Was. Exactly Lookie Betts had if not as good if not better year than Jose altuve was the MVP, I get that. Okay. Now, we're so different award. Today's Mookie Betts then this year. Then if you wanna last. The second. We'll be best. I know. But you would think you could put his first this year because they did the same thing. Well, LeBron maybe had a better year except you did championship and was named the LeBron one in two thousand sixteen we okay with that they won the championship. So they go no place sixteen. They came back. Yeah. He deserves. Okay. Two thousand fifteen with Steph curry two thousand fourteen Madison Bumgarner is that only athletes to play in North America. Yeah. I know you don't see Renaldo or messy. And you're basically the guy from French naturalist seemed like the four major sports. Other than Tiger Woods is one at four times. Ninety seven two thousand. Lance Armstrong won like two thousand and two three four five address Christian on those. Of course, Michael Phelps wanted twice two thousand eight. Choose to get he's gone on steroids. Steroid static. That would hurt your game. Yeah. But also, but also Mike Mike Phelps the favorite to win John Schuster and the curly team. We're not even supposed to metal now. So he deserves even more than felt act that you disagree with Christian on this set. Makes you unamerican right? You're talking about American hero. We shouldn't be up there with Hamilton in Washington. Josh, John, Schuster, Glenn. Shuster Simon and Schuster. I think so Christians onto something two thousand thirteen LeBron James they won the championship. So you guys. Okay. With that. The nominees but sure two thousand eleven Aaron Rodgers they won the Super Bowl in February of two thousand eleven and he had the best season of quarterbacks ever yet right before Brady one in two thousand seven he should have we should have more than one. Well, he's got one. I'm just telling you should have more like what other years, maybe, you know, one. When when he when he bought the patriots out of nowhere that would be more too because they didn't know. Patrick mahomes. It's kind of odd whatever, you know. He brought them out of nowhere. Barry Bonds in two thousand one a little home run right now. He did ratings seven drew Brees two thousand ten because they won the Super Bowl and they win the MVP. That seems like a I I'm fine with the list of they put out and LeBron's winning it. Okay. I don't have too much of a problem with that. I just think that it's a down year for the male athlete in sorry. That's true. Down here. But would you vote for? Probably lebron. Yeah. For. Thank is the best athletes in his sport every game. He took a bad team finals fifty one in game one short Smith remembered how many time outs they add or what the sky. I five. I think he was the best the most dominant athlete the best athletes in his own sport to those other guys or she was the MVP of the league or the American League. That's a totally different award. Other people vote. That was able to camp right earned that award. He was an MVP of the NHL last year. Right. But also, a you know is down here in sports when the fifth person isn't even a personal. But it's it's I get that. I know, but they couldn't find another person to put an old people who care about horse racing facing Seventy-three voice. Go. To watch a race. How much invest in who who is choice? Two hours before. Yeah. If your luck it's the same trainer, but two thousand what the hell was this? He was a better horse Farell the American fell when the no personnel. The euro the best horse ever with secretariat won the triple crown in nineteen Seventy-three OJ Simpson was the male secretary was was racist, though, secretary racers ain't knows that. Yes. Horse is very very racist. So he was out of the way to her. All horses are adulterers. You got to sleep. With does not meet the criteria for the baseball hall fame criteria. The it's about. What do they call? It. Isn't there there? They character your cost secretariat, very bad, very bad horse. We slept with a lot of mayors. But you know, he got paid to do that the owner got paid for that. Okay. So wrapping it up John Schuster should be the Shuster would vote for it. Let's check some of the poll results. So far here. Johnson twenty twenty-five who would you vote for male athlete is a year and right now, it's Mukhi bets leading with forty two percent agree. Would you say it was a down year though for there's clear Hillary? No runaway. Right. I mean, if okay, let's say LeBron other those runaways how many of those bear God's when he hit seventy three hundred runaway radio eight hundred fifty. What was.
