"A special presentation of Major League Baseball on ESPN radio feature in Game seven of the 2014 world serious between the Giants and the Royals. We're not rejoined Erin Byrne and Dan Shulman in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Giants leading three digit. This's one that will be asked about the Royals. Don't win this game. There's a strike taken one and one. I will say OK, had a good at bat in his last at that, where Arrest made a nice running catch on a line drive. But man is well guarded pitching. I got a sense of power up there 11 and a swing to fly ball down the left field line back out of play one and two. One out here in the bottom of the eighth inning. Giants are five outs away from their third World Series championship in five years they lead the Royals agreed to it would figure Dyson enters this game anyway defensively. In the top half of the ninth inning. This probably Okies last at bat of the night, Bumgarner into his wind up once to a swinging a ground ball to short Crawford charging has it on the first. Two down and Lorenzo Cain will come up. He's one for three. He struck out against Bumgarner in the fifth inning. Bumgarner three and 2/3 shutout innings. 45 pitches on the first pitch to cane is low ball one. We were talking between innings in San Francisco wins the World Series way know who the If The Royals win is Bumgarner's still the MVP with the incredible work that he has done in this? Siri's? Here's the one known as swinging this one and one on Lee, once the MVP award in the World Series came in in 1955. Only once as a player from the losing team. Name the V P that was Bobby Richardson, the Yankees in 1960 or the Pirates won in seven games. Bill Mazeroski homerun. 11 came there for a strike one into the Yankees, and their three wins blew out the Pirates. So huge numbers. Every pirate win was a close game. Richardson had a huge Siri's and he got even though the Yankees lost Bumgarner trying to make that move point at the end. The Giants won shoes is swinging foul off to the right. He went seven and gave up a running game one, threw a shutout in Game five, and he's now thrown three and 2/3 shutout innings Game seven on two days rest.

Dana's he touched on One thing Bruce votes, he said before the game is he envision maybe best case 40 to 50 pitches, but he's thrown so well right now. He can somehow retired, came here. I don't know how you don't send them back out again. 12 curveball in the dirt to his command has been sharp. Really. It wasn't for the 1st 2 batters that he faced. And it has been since and nobody has reached since the single he gave up to it. The first battery faced after that, a sacrifice and then 10 in a row. After that, set down by really 11 roller as he looks into posing. Here's the 22 and a swing and a pop up on the infield back of second. Manik wants it. Panic there.

"bill mazeroski" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Batting titles. Doesn't turn twenty nine until next month. And yet if thirty five point two war he's coming up on Bill Mazeroski who's in the hall of fame at. Thirty six point five Phil Rizzuto, forty point eight, and I understand that those guys are kind of at the low end of the middle infielders for the hall of fame. But to me once he gets closer to two thousand hats and might be enough. And he's got a long way to go on his career. What do you think? Yeah. I think that I think you're right. I mean, I think that the thing that he's done early in his career is kind of checked off the things that sometimes keep borderline guys out fairly or unfairly. Right. He's won an MVP. So he's won a major award. He's won a World Series. So you can't say he never wanted anything. So if you get to a point towards the end of his career where maybe he feels borderline those are often the things where guys ended up getting in. And where guys who haven't done those things don't end up getting in. I think you make early great point. And I think you know, we've seen him not so much last year, but you know, two years ago in three years ago, he kind of brought power to his game a little bit more. And it feels like he's doing that. Again. He just hit four home runs in a series against the keys type for the most any Astros players hitting a three-game series. And he's homered in three straight games for the first time in his career. So he's already almost halfway to his home run total from last year. I think if he you know, brings in maybe a twenty five homers season, which would be a career high or thirty home runs and we start seeing that consistently from him too. I think that completely changes how everybody sees him. Also, you know, assuming that he still continues to hit above three hundred. So I I think he could very easily if you draw Famer here in a conversation with him last summer he said to me said I still feel like I'm overpaid. And I said Jose if you never played another game the rest of your life. You won't be overpaid. Because you productions been so good in the early part of your career. All right. Let's play the numbers game number three number three's fourteen. The Mariners have homered in fourteen straight games. Start the season tying the two thousand two Indians for the longest such streak to start a season MLB history this afternoon, they'll get a chance to set that record against the royals. But I do have some bad news for. Dave Schoenfeld and Seattle. There have been eight prior teams to do this in at least eleven straight games and only one of them made the playoffs the two thousand one Diamondbacks who did win the World Series. But there are some last place finishes some fourth place, finishes, not necessarily what you want. And none of those teams finished first in home runs in the majors that year either. So the twenty he's probably.

"Are six eighty the sports leader. Before we this baseball hall of fame stuff putting a ball on. The James harden numbers. People are checking in four away says hardens lack of votes. Show that the fans don't appreciate his flopping for foul shots. And and that makes sense. I'm not saying he plays an exciting style of basketball. But you're never going to convince me that I wanna see Derrick rose in the all star game more than I wanna see James harden. You can't tell me Derrick rose deserves it more. That's what the all star game is about. It's about naming the best play. And by the way, we gotta get to. I said this before we gotta get to fifteen all stars on each team. You can't name three all NBA teams at the end of the year. Three all NBA starting lineups with five players in each. And then not give me fifteen all stars on each roster. It makes no sense. And I'm not advocating at all for the major league baseball model. Wherever team gets an all star because you end up with stuff like like shit Felipe a Vasquez have been an all star pitcher last year. Case you don't know Felipe Vasquez pitches for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was their lone all star last season. Like those guys it's like what you're just throwing out there. So that everybody wants to watch. But does everybody care to watch. If my one all star is a middle reliever some handed youngster that nobody's heard of before. I don't really care. I wanna see the superstars give me James harden in the all star game. That's what we wanna see. I wanna see four step backs and a travel. You know, what I mean like, and then people say, you know, I don't want us. You gotta play some defense. It's too many points being scored in the all star game. This is what it's about. It's supposed to be a a fun throw it up. Let the guys go do a bunch of dunks. And you'll get Kevin Durant thrown all UCS to Russell Westbrook, or whatever it happened. But I think people just don't like James harden style of play so much that they're looking to poke holes in everything that he does go back two years three years or two years ago. When when Mikey Antonio took over this team and remember all of a sudden James harden had like twelve assists a game or lead the NBA assist. Wherever was eleven and a half assists. And people are gonna well. It's just because he plays in TNN. Tony's offense. Yes. Steve Kerr, Steve Nash one to MVP's playing in that offense, not necessarily deserved MVP's. But he went to MVP's in that offense. You can't get you. I'm not gonna blame a guy for the style of play within a system. He the guy had more assisting he'd ever had in his career led the league in at one point. He was averaging like five assists a game and he comes out and he's averaging eleven and a half. And we're going to dog him for because he's playing in a good offense. He still by the way, averaging eight and a half assists in thirty five points a game. Nobody else on his team can score. And he has singlehandedly keeping the rockets in the Western Conference playoff picture, which by the way, they were nowhere near when Chris Paul went down. I know that was early and other was still a lot of games to be played. But I'm not going to. I don't even love watching this guy play. But you gotta give credit to James hardman two hundred points over the last four games. Kobe Bryant the only other player to do that in the last fifty years four to four checks in and says clay is a better two way player than harden is. Harden empty stats? I disagree with the empty stats. I totally agree. That clay is a better two way player. Klay Scott guard the best player on the floor every single night. Six five zero says, oh, we'll get into this actually six five wants to talk a little bit about the hall of fame voting. So why don't we switch gears? We'll get into that. Right now is today. Three o'clock. We'll find out who's gonna join Harold Baines hall of fame this year. That's the biggest joke to me, man. That's the biggest joke a designated hitter. Who like first of all for putting D H is in the hall of fame and Edgar Martinez is the one right now. It's looking like he's got a damn good shot. And I'm not trying to take away anything from guys offensive numbers and the number of seasons. He played in the league or the number of silver sluggers right now. Edgar Martinez with fifty three percent of the votes. And and you can check this throughout the day. If you want at three o'clock today, we'll find the final vote. It's a BB H O F tracker dot com. Baseball hall of fame tracker dot com. You can Google it. You can look it up. And it'll give you basically alive. Spreadsheet like an excel spreadsheet where you can follow. What percentage of the votes there are so right now Roger Clemens sitting at five Barry Bonds sitting at seven Curt Schilling sitting at six actually bonds and Clemens tied. Exactly with just under seventy one percent of the vote. Gotta have seventy five percents to get in now guys. Like Fred McGriff sitting at thirty eight and a half percent. Little further down. Manny Ramirez twenty-five percent. Manny Ramirez can have a tough time. Because may Ramirez is like enemy number one. When it comes to guys who have tested positive when it comes to bonds and Clemens. These are two guys who have never had a positive test be played within the steroid era. And you would think post at air if you figure the the testing started no five bonds played post at Erez. Well. I think what it all comes down to. And this is the debate everybody sat and Brian Murphy's take on. It is probably the best one that. History will show us how to vote for the hall of fame. We've now put guys like my Piazza Jeff Bagwell questionable steroid users in the hall of fame. And you've put a Commissioner who spent his entire career is Commissioner overlooking it and then damning dies who who then cheated in the game. When after the ninety four strike the Commissioner wanted nothing more than to fill butts or fill seats in stadiums. Again. Right. The one thousand nine hundred ninety eight home run race between McGwire and Sosa. Absolutely. Brought people back to the game. Which is why you have to accept that. It is part of the game. People who are upset with the game of baseball left and came back because there was a home run chase now. Sammy Sosa for me is a guy at eleven and a half percent too much of his greatness and too much of of what makes him a potential hall of famers tied to steroids. Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens were hall of fame talents before Sammy Sosa had four of the greatest years ever ever for a home run hitter base pretty purely on. On steroid use. Now, there's other guys were borderline dice here for me. And now ROY halladay looking at ninety two and a half percent. It's it's it's a sad thing to say or a an upsetting thing to say. And I know this may upset some people, but the question has to be asked would ROY halladay be a first ballot hall of Famer if he didn't pass away in the fashion that he did last year? I firmly believe he probably would not be I think this is a almost a posthumous vote here that they're doing. And it's not to say, I don't believe he's a hall of Famer. I do I do two hundred and three career wins in three hundred ninety career starts that is unheard of. And we're also getting to the era where there used to be these numbers in baseball were you were an automatic hall of fame. Right. Three thousand hits. Gotcha. In five hundred home runs. Gotcha. In three thousand in three hundred wins got you in. We're not going to get the three hundred wins anymore, especially I mean, I think we'll get back away from the way the bullpen is going in the system of the of the no third time through. The lineup which I think there are debates against that with certain guys some guys get stronger and won't use a certain patient till a second or third time through. I think we'll get back to a lot of that. But counting on guys for three hundred wins in the nature of the game. Today is not likely ROY halladay. Maybe the first guy to go in with two hundred and three wins. Who's? Part of this. I don't wanna say totally new era. But he is he's in this this generation of ball players who aren't going to have three hundred career wins. So I understand why he's getting votes. I also think that maybe he's getting more than he. Otherwise would have a couple other guys on this list that I've got exception with not getting in Omar Vizquel. I think causes a little pause. I think giants fans loved Omar Vizquel. I'll never forget the morning giant signed him. I get a knock on my door. I was getting ready for for middle school must have been middle school might have been other than early high school, my mom, not so my door. And she says, what do you think Omar Vizquel, and my first reaction was well, he's he's kinda old. He's like thirty seven or whatever when they signed him. Proceeds to win back to back. Gold bluffs at shortstop. And until Brandon Crawford, and I still think probably better than in Crawford. The best fielding shortstops that I've ever seen on the giants. He was incredible the place he'd make it at second base. The turnaround back door to third base. He made everything looks show. Simple. So easy on the field. So easy going now. If you're going to say, well, all he did was he didn't have good enough numbers as a as a hitter he a to seventy two career hitter. He was a great fielder. First of all if you're debate is only he's a great fielder than get Ozzie Smith out of the hall of fame Ozzie Smith the greatest shortstop fielding wise, probably of all time nowhere near the offensive player. Omar vizquel. Oh was twenty eight hundred damn near twenty nine hundred hits for Omar Vizquel to go with his eleven Gold Gloves. The other side of this is for Jeff Ken now. A lot of people aren't going to get Jeff in the hall of fame, by the way, three hundred and seventy seven career home runs over fifteen hundred RBI is seven straight years of one hundred RBI is if you are the all time home run leader at your position, you should be in the hall of fame. It's an underrepresented position. He was affectively a third baseman playing second base hitting like a third baseman S three hundred and seventy seven career home runs as a third baseman. He might be getting in the hall of fame. I don't know why we don't give them credit at second base. Maybe it said he played out here. Maybe it said he played in that area. Played in for. I don't know why it is the Jeff Kent doesn't get the love. I'm not saying he wasn't a hall of fame talent. Or that? Maybe people didn't seem that the did one VP who was a multi time all-star. And again, the seven straight years of one hundred RBI is for me gets in. Now when Bill Mazeroski is in the hall of fame and people say, no Bill. Rouse key was an exceptional fielder. Not just a good fielder exceptional fielder. He wasn't an exceptional hitter. He had a big home run a in a game seven World Series game. A walk off already gave several World Series nineteen sixty. But if that's the case put all move, Omar Vizquel in the hall of fame. He was an exceptional fielder any at twenty eight hundred hits. And how about this note, Omar Vizquel with twenty eight hundred hits an eleven Gold Gloves is only the third guy to ever do that the other two guys Roberto Clemente and Willie freaking maze. Those are the only three guys to have eleven Gold Gloves and twenty eight hundred hits. So we'll find out today, which guys are detonated. Fred mcgriff. Probably not going to get the votes. But to me, it's like I hear people talking about you gotta put Todd Helton and like dude Todd Helton as one hundred and thirty fewer career home runs than Fred McGriff. And he played it chorus field, and I'm not gonna slam over planet chorus field. But if you put that guy in you consider putting in Fred McGriff too. I see lots of people checking their on the text line. We'll get into this stuff on the other side. I love hitting the tax on on this. Topic because everybody's got a different opinion. And it's an ongoing lifelong argument about who should be in the hall of fame..

"Believe every bo- casino each week, the degenerate trifecta, and I set sail tackling fake gambling propositions related to sports and pop culture events in honor of Harold Baines induction into the baseball hall of fame poly kid you actually lost sleep over this. I'm not just saying that you tag. You said you were up late at night looking at stats for other more worthy candidates. Yeah. It drives me crazy. So, you know, I'm a stickler for this baseball hall of fame stuff more so than any all hall of fame. Right. And when I saw this. I didn't even realize I think it was a day late realizing this. Yeah. That Harold Baines got into the hall of fame, and I was just blown away by it. I really nothing against how bays personally speaking is probably seems like quite a nice gentleman. And I think that's why he got in because he's a nice guy. It's just not right. He's in because of his stats stats. Right. Is that what they say like as a D H E put up real numbers. But I I don't know even like Albert bell. Who was who's left in the lurch? I figured he was a nobody wants to hear this. But he was a greater presence. You frayed when Albert bell step to the PLO Backley, right? Not so much Harold Baines and brother by what'd you say? It was like seventh and MVP voting. Once or his best. I think ninth was his best here like every he played like forty five years and at three hundred season. So it was like I just thought if he's gonna make for D H, then you might as well start with Edgar Martinez should have made it. All right. Well, again, nothing against how Baynes, but captain Morgan presents this. So he he made a list and Harold Baines out of the worst hall of famers in any sport. You could bet on this. How Baynes five to two odds? Yon standard the kicker four to one odds. He's in the hall of fame sixty six percent field goal. He wouldn't start for the chargers at this point Bill Mazeroski six to one odds to sixty hitter for the pirates under and thirty eight home runs. Good field a good glove. But you know, doesn't it that Homer in the nineteen sixty World Series. We don't hear about Bill Mazeroski and hall of fame, and draws impetuous rich and eight to one look, I feel bad met his demise very very sad way. But he did most of his damage in the European leagues for four seasons. He was a nets. He the New York media went. Crazy. You know, great great shooter. But I don't know about a hall of Famer he's eight to one odds and the field is seven to two odds. So you can go Bain Stenner rude Mazziarol, Patrick or the field worst hall of Famer in any sport parley kids. Start us off. Did you go with Baynes? Yeah, I'm gonna pay and sell them. Because to me this one really for some reason struck a chord with me, you know, a Ben Lindbergh, maybe you guys know from the ringer wrote a really nice piece about the case against how Baynes I don't even think he had to provide really much information at all to be honest with you all you got to really do is look at the numbers. This guy. Sal was twice in the top ten veep, veep MVP voting with the ninth place finish being the hardest one. So it's harder to get into our hall of fame RAV is to get into the baseball hall of fame. That is as been what's happened here. Take it seriously, look at the absolute, obviously, take this much more serious..

"Lost the way Frank cash you. The plan calls the shots Rallo has guys by the way, just just chicken while Frank was talking about his song there. I just looked at my Twitter the Minnesota Vikings just just acts there. Oh coordinator after last night's performance. John D Filipo God just another year of underachieving for the Minnesota. That's what they do. They underachieve. They would have been in the NFC championship or probably they were in the NFC championship workout. Yeah. What they do. They underachieve and Christian never moved indoors. That's the problem is getting roasted nationwide for being the eighty four million dollar man who can't win a big game. They just put a note up on ESPN said he's Owen seven in his career on Monday night football. It's the worst record for any quarterback on Monday night football Elias sports bureau. Wow. Somebody's you show him that stat and say you liked that you like that. Matt and San Francisco's checking in eight hundred Camby are MAC morning. How are you? Hey, guys. How's it going? What's up, Matt? I'm so I just wanna talk hall of fame a little bit. Yeah. And I first and foremost, the cellarman stuff's gotta stop. S I S S I S H is one rivalry this. Faceoffs adorable. But I I just can't listen to it. You guys have made your history on him. You guys go back to the eighteen whatever seventies eighties, whatever and Bellarmine was was a glint in the WCHS either. Yeah. A little bit. Yeah. The keys are always fun. But anyway on the whole thing. Just touched on it real quick. And the Griffey comment was what got me earlier. There's just did you remember the McGwire Sosa year? Griffey was right in the hunt right up until the end. And then those guys just hold way add to that the passing comment about maybe you do I think that's where you see the difference. He was consistent all the way across you never had that massive spike Jonze. And so so those guys were always good. But you never saw the huge jump. Well. I'm looking here. I mean, you're right. But you're right. But he he went fifty fifty six fifty six forty eight forty then after two thousand the injuries at age thirty-one down. He never hit. He never he only topped thirty once more actually thirty five when he was thirty five years old curious after going into the wall and Seattle he was never the same in the hamstring tear Seattle here, you're certain that he's he's totally clean. I mean, I think that you guys touched on it with. Mcgriff to it's it's that sweet swing and just build never changed. I mean, there's there's other guys got so humid. Mcgriff for big boys that, you know, the head is the thing that always got me. You never saw that side fluctuate on junior and mcbrayer bonds. You know, you could eat popcorn at the movies out of that is true. So are you were you a Mariners fan? No, no born and raised in the city. It's just as a left-handed kid growing up by junior was it. So yes. Mike. Yeah. Yeah. I get it. So let me ask you just because you're a reasonable guy. You're not engaging in. Scurrilous accusations against Ken Griffey junior. Like I did. But are you are you kind of guy who would like to see bonds in the hall of fame, or do you think because the head was monstrous, he's so freakishly changed himself that you say, no, you know, what I'm going to be completely fair. And as a a sl guy in a fair fairplay guy. I can't watch a possible steroid Laker fan. Okay. Meredith. Cisco thanks for the go. It turns into a Sarah guy. Sarah. Now, John was an SI guy. Would we feel differently? Yes. Gino are good pal. Gino, what's up? Hey, guys. I'm all for will Clark being into the hall of fame and at Sam spear. I'm gonna view to Mike Masirah. Now, the forty Niners have one more victory in their pocket. I wanted to come Sunday Gino same here. Man. Listen, why that doggone blocked feel tamp wasn't question because it Cording to the rules. You can't make a running start. You have to make stand. Stop from the line of scrimmage, and you're not allowed to touch anybody. Yeah. They said he didn't touch anybody. Yeah. Well, I don't know those guys, and I'll tell you what if they wear those green uniforms, I might have to wear. My son dies. I know. Take care. Thanks for the call lovey, Gino. Yeah. We do love, Gino. And by the way. Yeah. I'm looking for their they said, they did not they did not penalize them because he didn't touch anybody. But man, just seems like the, you know, the Seahawks getting all the stupid, calls, etc. Etc. Same with the Seahawks shocking about the Bobby Wagner block the field about that. The game is still six nothing. And that was after they had failed to punch it in from the one, and then they stopped them. And then they try to feel gold six three. It was a it was a match up on paper. I expected a lot more from Minnesota to be honest with you, and it turns out to be just a disappointing game extra playing incredible right now. Oh, man, saying that Pete Carroll is. Well, they missed the playoffs last year for the first time. Yeah. They're going in this year. Make no mistake. I mean, if they ran the table they'd finished at eleven and five well, that's why the Niners could stop them. I want to punch him in the mouth. So bad. We all do I think all of us Niner fans are on the same page here. This is like the one win were still one thing we're asking for this year is a win on Sunday against Seattle once and for all finally cope, you feel that too in a season that kind of got away from us early. There'd been trying to put the wheels back on ever since Sunday was nice nice win against Denver. But gave me this one against the hawks feel it. It'd be a nice moral victory for the season. I agree. It would be for. Sure. It would also take you out of the number one pick more than likely. That's right. There's no screamingly obvious number one. And you don't die. You're not dying for quarterback. You know, you could go pick a great player right now. You know, by the way, the Eric kendricks when Russell Wilson made that insane pass. We basically just threw it for no reason whatsoever last night and Eric Hendrix, the linebacker out of UCLA at the end of the second quarter. Horrible interception. She's never thrown that song quote from kendricks. I should have scored man for real. No. I thought when the ball was in the air. I'm like that's got pick six written all over it. And they caught it, but he just kinda crumpled to the ground it. Yeah. That was the problem might have been. Barrows who tweeted out right after that play. It could've been mayo. Can't remember who that throw from Wilson looked like he threw it was throwing a shoe? That's what he said. It was. Yes, let's go with is his name. Mike Mike up in bend, Oregon. Oh, buddy. Mike from Ben. What's Mike, Mike? How you doing? Hey, Murphy's or twenty percent off on your next angioplasty with that box of doughnuts. Oh, man. Come second in line. Believe me we are looking at. I mean, these these bars out Murphy's is no joke over here. Seriously, man. This is the length of the maple bar looking at looks like the distance between like a fourth down measurement that comes up short. You know, what I mean like you could put that bar in between the football and the was the raider game when they got the ref actually registered with a piece of paper. You remember that last year this one you could mess with a maple? Anyway, you see where I'm going. Now, you're on the maple just looking at the maple bar. My little argument is I love will Clark. And I was at the eighty nine saw the single also whatever his name was so cork hit thirty five home runs once. But then as next highest was twenty nine. And his career batting averages. Three or three. But he only managed crew hit total like two thousand one hundred seventy six so war total. Yeah. He's probably up there. But I can bring him in. And then you significantly lower the barbs. Players. They have now with Maine's they have. And it's this new sixteen Blair committee. That's thanks Mike for the call dropped off. That's okay. Yeah. It's this new sixteen committee is going to confuse fans. Because now the same reason is that committee is the one that put LaRussa, and we like, Tony, but he managed it during the steroid era and many of his teams were famous for their steroids. So people say, well, we've you're not putting bonds or Clemens in. But you're putting in a manager managed and had his greatest years with steroid use players. And then the baseball writers answer to that is well, we didn't. But LaRussa in that committee did so you got two different. Why is that allowed like why is it also looks like we hold a presidential election? And they're like, well, here's the result for forty states. And then these ten states say, my questioning the voting criteria has been in place for so long, and it's been so strict and Murphy, you have said you like that why is there now suddenly like this offshoot like, well, we have a new committee like is that even allowed? They have always had a veterans. Committee. I should make that clear there has been. But it's always been a pretty miserly committee their most famous move was the Bill Mazeroski move. They put it in Bill Mazeroski who a lot of people are like, whoa. What Bill Mazeroski now with the new thing. They have is called the modern era committee. So that are called today's game. And that's where it one that. We can really we saw these guys with our eyes. So we're evaluating it. That's why I think we're getting more emotional is this thing called today's game. As opposed to the veterans companies veterans committee was supposed to clean up any mess as the writers had, and there weren't many who put bud seal again that was the committee the committee. It's the most egregious was the committee this attention, we hit everything. And now he's like why are we just putting him in because he's a Commissioner and bus. So that's. Yeah.

"Let's go baby. I'll talk about my memories, you know, I'm older than you guys. So I've seen a lot of great moments in history. Bill Mazeroski winning the World Series for the pirates back in the sixties. I believe it was I've seen Ali knockout foreman, the the rumble in the jumble. And all that I've seen it all. But the greatest moment was when the Red Sox were down three zero and the games, and it came back, and they won the next three. And then the greatest moment in sports history. When schilling pits almost a perfect game. And he did it on a bloody stump of a leg. Push through the pain any secured the victory for the Red Sox four to three. That is amazing Kurt Matt might producer thinks that he says, he just said fake blood. I said man trick. Yes. Yes. Kurt. Thank you for the call. Let's get John and Madison Ohio. I don't know if he wants to talk Red Sox or the attacks today. First of all Tom last offer four dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies and two glasses of milk become to Cleveland. I think we can't drink milk anymore. It's associated with the right? Have you seen that? Did you guys? See that. Are you kidding? Okay. Then. Okay. Then soy milk. Why don't why don't you mail? It. I hear packages are acceptable. These ones that leak. Put the cookies in the mail if they get to me. Then Tom, it'll be powdered milk. Oh boy. Muthana?

Were you aware of the yellow jackets in the past couple of weeks? They've been really pesky, and they're mean and nasty. And of course, all this stuff was takes and all that other crap, you know, going through the woods, but that is one I'm not a big fan of of chilly weather, but I am a big fan of this kind of weather in that as a runner, you don't have to worry about insects. You don't have to worry about bees swarming on your face. You don't have to worry about ticks taken a Ryan on your legs. And in the color is just fantastic. And we haven't had that much rain. So it's not, you know, slippery horrible out there. So if you're a runner you are in heaven I went out yesterday like a lot of things going on this weekend. As I was saying on the air on Friday. Yeah. I guess yesterday. And I have yet to get out to cranberry they've got this blind hockey coli fleeing they've got a blind hockey tournament going on at the Lemieux center in cranberry UPS's, Lemieux hockey centers rink down there and last night at the game was at five today. They probably just finished the game started to thirty tournament and tomorrow morning. They're going to have the final game for the Canadian all blind team, seriously and the US all blind team nine thirty tomorrow morning. It's free. Go see if you can I did not couldn't make it last night. Missed it today because we're on the air. So I'm gonna try for the nine thirty tomorrow morning. I want to see these guys. There was a Bob bats did a great story in the Pittsburgh post gazette couple of days ago. About the goalie for the team who is blind. And I thought what is joke what but they've had blind hockey in Canada for fifty years and somebody told me there are blind hockey players. We just call them referees. But there's a Canadian all blind hockey team. And for the past fifty years they played against themselves because no one else had organized a blind hockey team. But in the United States has and they've got they've got some players that are not totally blind. But they would be considered blind because of how bad their vision is they really cannot see. But the goalie to be a gully and be blind. And here's how they do it. The the goal which is usually six by four is is narrower. It's probably four by three. So it's a little bit of a smaller net. The puck is twice the size of the regular National Hockey League park, which is three inches in diameter. So at six inches in diameter and it has ball bearings. Inside of it. It's metal with ball bearings inside of it. So the players key on the sound of the puck. I think it's amazing. And as a goalie, you you square up on the sound and. It's pretty interesting. So I mean, it sounds pretty interesting. I want to see this. We're gonna take a break. Your Vic is in Kennedy. We ought to get you on talking about Bill Mazeroski love that. We'll take a break..

"What a nice guy Bill Mazeroski. Yeah. You know, it's finally just a history of Pittsburgh thing it history of baseball thing. It's the only time that a walk off home run ended the game seven in World Series history. So the pirates actually have one not just one thousand nine hundred sixty but how many total World Series? Yeah. Well, you know, we we actually played in the first World Series. So you go all the way back to the very beginning. Nineteen ninety three the first ever World Series. We played against the Boston Americans and their star pitcher. Cy Young, really. Yeah. And of course, that also ended on October thirteenth so and they had a weird rule because it was so popular that that game that they ended up putting fans in the outfield, and they had to put up a rope. And if you the rule and the game was you hit a ball and went under the rope considered a ground rule. Triple seven seventeen triples story in that series. We didn't prevail. Of course, they they blame that the song Tessie that the by the Boston Americans came up with actually with our downfall and lots of injuries. And I one of our players even went crazy was put it in the mental on student. My goodness long story there, but we did recover nineteen o nine we came back. And we want this time with the first World Series the ever come back and have a game seven and during that World Series nineteen oh nine we played the Detroit Tigers and their star player Tuykov or no stranger to playing against the best. Of course again. The last next one was nineteen twenty five and in nineteen twenty five we were the first team to overcome a three to one deficit in the in the series. Of course, we were also the second team to do the same exact thing when we did that again in nineteen seventy-one one we won the World Series. Again. Maybe twenty seven we go to that one. This one was the first time a National League team was swept by the American League. And this was the New York Yankee was led by Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth nineteen twenty seven so four game series. They swept us it was not our proudest moment. But we did come back and do it again. In nineteen sixty of course, and again at seventy one and seventy nine crystal records that hold to this day, for example, really Stargell nineteen seventy nine he was the oldest MVP in the World Series. Still to this day. He's thirty nine years old and two hundred twenty five days a very rich history of pirates baseball World Series champs would like to have another soon. Thank you.

"Unlike Steve Kerr, we want to be here today about this. Yeah. Earbud bud by any spices up a otherwise a Monday boring preseason, I don't know if they win or loss. But I think they lost. Does it matter center? The buffet. He said he said he usually gets a late night. I'll tell you what you guys I took so Bonnie Joel I have two boys. Right. One sixteen once fourteen and my my youngest kid is like a warrior fanatic. So last year or was it? Let me think about this for one second. Yeah. It was last year. I took him out to a preseason game ever. Yeah. Okay. There were tickets or I don't know even how it happened. But somehow I got a pair and it was like a Saturday night. And he was like I wanna go see, Katie. And all these like Rockstars in order to these kids, and I went out there. And first of all let me just talking about my experience the place was packed packed for a preseason game. It was electric like a regular season game the atmosphere, but when the smoke cleared, I have no idea who wanna watch that game looking back. Do you remember who they played they played? I wanna say Denver. Denver guessing guess. Well, you know, I've done it is my point. I've done us sons one seventeen years, but actually Barney brought this up as soon as it happens. My first thought was like you just said it was packed. There's a lot of people and you said this yesterday bunny Jones. People. They can only go out there. That's it. Tickets are so expensive the good time for the kids yet pictures and like sign autographs. Yeah. The atmosphere's wage jail like that. Yeah. That said throwing out Kevin Durant. Does no favours to those people. They're there to watch. Kevin Durant and he gets tossed out of the game. So, but you know, it's funny in the chronicle Connor Letourneau kind of used it as a theme. Like, yeah. It's a funny little thing. But it's also symbolic of what the warriors have to combat which is that nightly boredom that nightly boredom and there we go again. Here we go again with winning a week from tonight, they open the season, and we're going to be like, okay. As soon as the ball tips wins the playoffs. When's the playoffs? So now, there is more. I'll say this. And we said this when they signed DeMarcus cousins, this is a brilliant move. Because what it does is it livens up the place ads intrigue. Nightside to see him on the court house. He gonna fit in his temper gonna be at Christmas game against the Lakers. I think is exciting. Obviously LeBron being an so there's two interesting thing on in LA in DeMarcus in Golden State at so that hopefully we'll combat. Yes. NBA Fordham that were sitting Murph turned me onto a great article about what two three weeks ago, and if you still have access to this. I would say Murph Lincoln tweeted out there for people to see it was about Steve Kerr. It was actually Phil Jackson interviewing Steve Kerr and Scurr talked in detail about different ways different methods. He's you'd he used last year in a challenging year. Even though they won the title again. Like he had to keep his guys engaged you had to keep his guys focused and one time he led them up to the press. And he realized that was a big mistake. They didn't respond to that. That's not gonna work. So, but that's kind of again to your point which is like DeMarcus will definitely live in things up. There's no question but Kerr, again, we'll be challenged as a coach even with all this talent. All we have the players now. How do you keep these guys like engaged and focused for eighty two games? That's channel healthy to older now. And he said he's gonna rest allow the star. You even more. More this year. To see how the bench looks this year. It's funny. There was a quote from Quinn cook out there. It's like I forgot about. That's my boy what a great story coughing while Damian Jones. Now, I think in looney these are some of the younger guys that are gonna like Damian Jones, I think it's all on the line for him the way it was for looney last year like looney took it, and he made something out of it. Now, he's he's he's a warrior by Damian Jones are going to have to go through that same process. You've got to prove to these guys that he belongs on that team. So they'll be some young blood fight into Marcus has been really good. He's been kind of mentoring. Those guys is nice for them to have some last night looney twenty minutes, eleven points, one board Damian Jones, twenty two minutes, eleven points, eight boards. Dude Kerr had looney out on the floor. Dude. I in critical moments of the he totally one occurs. Fade was just leap in Jordan bell out there for last night. He's another one looking forward to him loading into another season this year. So when he went off the glass as a rookie dunk. Play last night game on game night. I decided to chill decided to walk runaway. Klay was probably home watching. Drew brees. Yeah. I wanna watch Andrew break. The record. Actually, you can probably track them down. Rocco is a big fan. Yeah. Breeze game wrong. Sit by his side support him or maybe he wanted to watch it a competitive baseball game. And he got nothing whatever happened whose brother, by the way. Traces. He's still out there somewhere. Back down to the minute is up. He was down a few times. I don't know how he didn't start it with the dodgers hitting early bomb or to what about the DNA in that family, dude. Jeans. He got the dad you've got clay. You got trace Michael was the number one draft pick in the NBA. I think a lot of people forget that. Here's a number where Michael, dude? Do you follow him on Twitter? He's a hilarious dad. Tweeter nights. He writes out these lakes, really goofy thoughts, really corny goofy. And I believe me. I'm the guy. I relate very corny like. Oh, yeah. Michael. You're like me. I get you. That's my. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, paulie for you little digression. He went on a bizarre. He writes hilarious just musings about life. And what happens at a stop light? Or why isn't my dog eating his food or what's on TV tonight? He writes, like the cornyist of the other day. He was like man, I'm sitting here.

Now the cure. Yeah. I swear to God. They just put out today to go ahead and say CCC bath the more deserving than the. Okay, boys. Don't cry Murphy. No. That earlier this morning driving in always something. Cope says that thought provoking for me first of all you name check trot, Nixon forgotten was alive. Cope is cool like that it was disappointing. But the name Schick was that you had actually referenced the movie fever pitch Rajai. Pretend never was made. Dude. I knew that that was going to irk you the fact that it was a line from fever pitch. But I knew because it was it was a scene. I was quoting in which they're upset after the nineteen to eight loss game. It doesn't bother me. I do I do hate weightlessness. Everything about it. Right. I'm with you. The act was Barry who was the fell. Yeah. There's something about the homeless cheesy. It was it wasn't a baseball ice. The didn't like it. Boston aren't that? Cute. That's gonna be a baseball movie. It's fact one of the biggest stains on the Red Sox ending their eighty six year. Drought was leading Jimmy Fallon and drew Barrymore on the Busch stadium while they're celebrating. It's like, are you kidding me? It wasn't initially part of the plan. Do you know the back story because they had initially written the end of the movie for the Red Sox to lose the whole movie was supposed to be a badly. He overcomes this this big Red Sox fan and now I've fallen in love and I choose her. But then they had to re shoot the ending because the Red Sox went on this improbable just another reason to dislike girl ever. Hey, speaking of which six teen to one and all I wanted was a great Red Sox Yankees. I wanted to stadium rock any two wanted ninth-inning drama. I wanted to tie game. Nothing doing buddy. I felt like a TV executive last night like going all I wanted was a show fast. And now we're back to boring Yankee Stadium again. Like, I I have to admit I really enjoyed that the atmosphere in that wildcard game just seeing like Lieke stadium lit up like that. Again, it kind of like I was like, okay. That's the way it should be. But then last night it was right back to the to the modern era. Mark was there. And he said, this is a funeral home. It was just it was a libraries texting his distress signals early. He was not different servino than the wild card game. Right. Exactly. Exactly. Totally. And then I mean for Brock Holt to become the first player in the history of baseball to hit for the cycle. Which by the way, cope says a baseball head of the belief because you know, once Olympics have ruined the cycle to they've told you why are you making a big deal, but the cycle all it is is a statistic. Auditing? But that's all it is. It's a cool feet. You don't like to what's going on. I'm not saying I don't like it. It's a cool feet. I like it. But. Likes and dislikes, and I like walking on the beach. I like poetry. I like fireside cuddling dislikes drew Brees. It hit for the cycle. Starting pitchers. You're putting I hate starting pitchers to hate cycles. I liked to cycle. It's a cool feet. But just like Bill Mazeroski, nobody should go into the hall of fame for one game or one moment or one feet. Bill Mazeroski nice poll. He had a great glove, and that's nonsense. It was a lame reason. It was a crony move to put him on a crony Mojo. Although don't talk to art. How about that one of his favorite sports memory of all time as a Pittsburgh kid Mazeroski when a game seven of the World Series? Anyway, the point being is that we didn't get a show. And now we need to remind Yankee fans of this game six two thousand fourteen World Series. Giants lose ten nothing. They win the World Series. The next night game. Three twenty four Yanni's. Beat the Red Sox nineteen to eight the Red Sox win the World Series. So wipe it clean. Give us a great show. Tonight.

This fact, they've won two World Series since sixty four and went to a couple of others. There's still people. They cannot get that sixty four collapse and their heads. I'm going with a famous Elma. A little bit more famous and Larry since it was a well. No, it's I'm going with the famous Homer only because it is the eighty second birthday a Bill Mazeroski who hit one of the most famous World Series home runs ever game. Seven to beat the Yankees. I can still see him stomping on home plate. And I I'm not even old enough really to have seen it live. But who hasn't seen that moment a thousand times it's a famous World Series in that you probably noticed that the pirates beat the Yankees in seven games. But if we add up all the runs scored over the seven game series, the Anki scored like one hundred more runs in them. A three games at the Yankees won. They won like ten nothing. One of them. Yeah. Anyway, here's my favorite part about this Bill Mazeroski story. There's obviously this group is dying off literally dying off. But for years since nineteen sixty it's fifty eight years ago. It's been a group of pirate fans who played a game on a real to reel tape recorder. That has a couple of little speakers built in they play on the exact location of the Ford field flagpole. And they sit and listen to the game they play real time day play. It was an air to noon game. If I remember all World Series games back then were day games. And they let's say the game started at one o'clock. That's when they start the real real the game. They have the entire broadcast, and they sit around and listen to it to celebrate that great moment is that cooler what very cool. Wow. What a great way to spend. And afternoon. Yeah. So that's Bill Mazeroski turning eighty two years old today. I'm always had a thing for his name to cool name. It is. Zini speaking names Zeenat, Bill mats. It's a it's a really great name. I would say it's a little long, but you know, almost perfect Bill would be Bill Matt's. Russki actually good question was your name shortened at any point not like during your lifetime.
