"Usa. Here's ron ron. Guidry has joined us here on sports. Byline talking about his fine career and you can read all about it. I want you to check out this book. Because it's just an excellent re gator. My life in pinstripes. I want to go back and just touch for a moment on that. Seventy eight season you particularly effective with two outs and runners in scoring position and in the ninth inning of games. I mean your success. During that seventy eight was due in large part to mastering the slider to complement your great fastball. Tell me a little bit about putting a new pitch into your repertoire. Well you know i did. I did not learn that pitch myself. It was taught to me by sparky law In in nineteen seventy six. I spent a lot of time in the both in. Like i said billy wouldn't use me a lot so i got to throw a lot in the book to try to keep in shape and and and you know. Try to get ready to do the job. That i was supposed to but i i needed something else. Other than just a fastball. Through hard i threw a break involved but it wasn't a very great breaking ball and one day spark. He just said you know. I've been watching you throw and you actually remind me of myself because of your mechanics. We throw a lot of like you know a lot harder. But i think if i showed you how i think you could learn how to throw a slider somewhat similar to mine and we started working on it and within two three weeks i had perfected this pitch. That eventually goes on to set me on my career. But it wasn't me was him. Also twenty. fifth win of the regular season was the most significant as you were the winning pitcher in the yankees dramatic five four win over the red sox and that one game playoff at fenway park in boston to decide the american league east winner in that neigh game of course is known for bucky dent seventh inning. Three run home. Run off of mike torres Tell me a little bit about that game. And what were the turning points aside from just that home run. Well you know going over there You know that was that was the worst thing we had to go over there Because we had lost the coin. Toss so Going over there. I don't think any of us really felt like okay. You know this is. This is not good. We we had just beaten them for games in a ruined in september In in fenway park. So we knew that we could. We could go with him told it to. Just a question of you know for me. I need to keep this game as close as i can to give my team an opportunity to win. I don't you know i. I was pitching on less than i normally had. So you know. I'm not gonna make an excuse and say you know i didn't pitch great but i didn't have my proper s. I know that. And you know. I gave up a home month to yeahs early. But it's one run it's a solo home run and then i gave up another run and and you know you're thinking okay. I can't afford to to to give up anymore And when bucket came up in the seventh inning you know. I'm thinking in the dugout. Okay you know. I don't know who it's going to be but that was that was kind of like the scenario all season long. There was always someone on our team who who always was a hero. It was never the same. It wasn't like me all the time. It wasn't like reggie all the time. It wasn't like months and all the time but just every game it was someone else that would step up and do something spectacular. And when you look at you know bucky goes on and he hits the home run. That's the big deciding blow that turns the game. Bucky hadn't hit a home run in two three months. He only hit five or six all year but yet he's the hero of the game. Okay reggie goes on in the in the next inning and hits with with turns out to be the winning run but that that put us up five to two at the time you know and you know i know. I don't take anything away from reggie but you know reggie's home one was important because that was the winning run they show. Buck is all the time because that was the turning point of the game and so bucky to hit. It was great because like i said he hadn't done anything really spectacular than be a great fundamental player all year. And that's that was what our team was. All of our players would just fundamentally sound. I always said if they touched the ball as a defensive unit. You out the other thing. That i found interesting was the fact that you know. When you played baseball you can always see a lot of players with a big lump in their cheek and everybody knew what that was a charged tobacco. But i've always thought for guys that were on the mound happen bam bam that could affect you chewing tobacco and you swallowed your tobacco. I've tried to pick through that. Ron you gotta bring that up. But that's the last time. I chewed swallowed it on the monday night game of the week and all i can remember my mom telling me the story. She kept saying that howard cosell. Who was the commentator. On monday night baseball he kept saying that. I pulled a muscle in my leg. But that wasn't the case because when the trainer came out well first of all greg devils walked over to see if i was okay. And he said. Did you pull a muscle. I said i did. Not so i'll in my back. Oh he just turned around and walked off gene. Monahan the train and walk out he started rubbing one leg and i said that's not he rubbed the when i said that's not easy. He said well what is it. I said i'll swallowed tobacco. You said well. He said a couple of derogatory word that he took off. And he has billy morton walking on the way and he just told billy swallowed his back and villages turned around and left. Now i got the inning. And when i got back in the dugout billy asked me and said hey slinky said do you think you can finish this game and then i started to get did. I started to see four of everything and i told him sure. As soon as i figure out who i'm supposed to throw to. I might be able to. And he just laughed and he said. Take it on your done last time. I chewed him. That that was the i can understand that over a seven-year period. You amassed a one hundred thirteen fifty seven win loss record but the thing that jumped out at me and i never had heard this before. Was you played two games in center field. You didn't make a play but tell me how that came about. Well i thought you know. I used to always shag incentive field throughout the batting practice. I very seldom ever ran. Like you know when pitchers are supposed to run. I didn't do that. I just ran for almost like a solid hour. incentive field and. That's how getting my running. I noticed in a field and if a ball was hit in the outfield. I tried to get it. I didn't make any difference if i didn't catch it or not. I just tried to if the ball was hit down the left field line in the corner. I ran all the way from center field to try to catch. I jumped on. The fence are crashed into the fence. I dove. I did everything like an appeal. 'cause 'cause i was a good outfielder when i was young and i always said i was probably a better i'll in and i was a pitcher but nobody believes that but anyway billy knew that i could play center field. He watched me play centerfield and I got an opportunity. One day.

This is SportsCenter all night on ESPN Radio. I'm Jim Brass will college football Friday. Georgia Tech Rally to touchdown deficit to Be Louisville, 46 to 27 Derek. King in Miami. Put 47 on Louisville earlier and follow that with 52 on Florida State. Let's bring in ESPN College football inside our heather Damage, and Heather the Kanes have themselves a quarterback. How might that give them a fighter's chance for tonight's ABC TV kickoff against Trevor Laurence in top? Right, Clemson? It absolutely does. You know, the Miami offense has transformed under offensive coordinator Rhett Lashley in his up tempo style. I think they're King has been fantabulous. But they've also been able to run the ball up the middle of my question, though about that game as candid defense pressure Trevor Laurence into some mistakes can they tackled Travis E'en? Because Clemson Offensively is the team to be, And I think this will tell us a lot just about how good Miami truly is. And how deep the CIA's as well this year that's a good point. Florida Gators Trask at quarterback is this thie? Less you offense from a year ago on that's a great question, because LSD was looking for it as well. Kyle's crash The Kyle Pit was just so fun to watch last weekend and look, Jimbo Fisher has a lot to prove he has lost 12 straight games against AP Top five opponent since he was at Florida State. That includes an O and seven record while at a and M. So if they don't find an answer to slow those Gators down, it's gonna be a long day. A cow field. Yeah, it's Florida, Texas A and M 12 noon on ESPN, Texas, Oklahoma coming off losses Who needs this one? Mohr? Wow, That is a really tough question. I would say Oklahoma needs it more because there was so much pressure going into this game for them and playoff aspirations. And it's just I think perception wise. More on Oklahoma. But look, the big 12 is probably in the worst situation of all the power five conferences, including a big back 12, which haven't even played yet as far as the college football playoff conversation goes, and the fact that the two brand name programs are playing in their biggest game of the regular season. And it's kind of an afterthought in the play off picture really speaks volumes about how precarious the big 12 playoff division is right now. Certainly not where Oklahoma thought they'd be this early in the season. Georgia Bulldogs. We know they've had defense. They have defense, but perhaps they have a quarterback as well. It's rank Bors ranked Tennessee and Georgia. That's an afternoon kickoff as well. What are you thinking? Right now? What they have under center in Athens? Well, I think they've done a really great job And we got some answers last week. Honestly, my question is devolved offense for really, Um can they keep Jared guarantee? No on his feet. Georgia's defense is so good. I think that if Georgia can make big plays, which they haven't necessarily had to do, because they're field position has been so good. Um, Then I think we answer yet Another question about them. But to me, the spotlight is on Tennessee's offense because I want to know if they are for real. Yeah, you've been all over this from the outset. Big 10 this month kicks off their season a Pac 12 next month. Is everything going according to plan thus far for these two respective conferences to get back on the field so far, it is they've begun their daily testing protocols. I know in the Big 10 and At the end of September. They had daily testing machines on every pack 12 campus and Colorado has been cleared by public health experts to get back. I know Stanford was practicing and working things out with Santa Clara, though they are, they're up in their running and they're they're ready to go. It'll be interesting to see how they fit into the playoff picture, because, remember By the time the college football playoff selection Committee releases its first ranking, I want to say the Pac 12 will have on Ly played three games and Jim, as you know is we've seen so far the first game. For everyone have been kind of floppy. It'll be about 10 months since the last time pack 12 teams play game. So all of that is going to make for a very interesting debate for those committee members. When they finally do get together and leave November, no doubt about it. They are behind the eight ball. She's ESPN College football Insider Heather Dennis Heather. As always, we appreciate the insight. Thanks so much for college football.

"For those that don't know, most probably don't lived in that area, and Doug got a tip that the Billy Morton died in a car accident and called me in the newsroom. Give me the story. He was working that night because he was sort of a new guy in town working Christmas and I was working as well. And You know, in 2020. That story Never Involves the way it does. It's out there for the world to see as soon as it happens, But in 1989 totally different world. Doug calls me with the story, and I called up some folks that I knew in Binghamton on some local hospitals there. Teo Teo run the story, and we went with it. And sadly, I remember calling, uh, Whitey Ford Teo to tell him the news again. A different world a world now where everybody knows instantaneously what's going on the back in 1989. A story like that you could. You could have your own for a while. Not that you necessarily want to have a Ah, story like that fall in your lap. This is such a tragedy, but yeah, we had. Ah, You know why he wouldn't come on. He was too broken up course upon hearing the news. But yet that in the finger snap Very rosy. Christmas took on Ah, whole new meaning and you had to stay out there and do all that. You have a lot of people on that night. I remember that it is you started talking about it. I'm starting to. It's all starting to come back, and that's when you learn and how did such a great job and what you have to learn, and it doesn't happen like that anymore. You have to learn when something happens. You are the conduit to the people listening. There's as Eric says there's no social media. So how we had to balance what actually was going on and doing a radio show at the same time, and how you did that, I remember was quite remarkable. No, it was funny. You know how he did. Of course, that is amazing job, But I was thinking back coming on today with you guys thinking about if they end and the two stories that Stuck in my mind about sort of the differences between where we're at now in 2020 with social media and where we were then same time frame 89 right, Susan the world Serious earthquake in San Francisco Doctor so just amazing. Only two months before Billy Martin pass that that you were covering the World Series and the Earthquake happened. Gary Cohen was hosting our shows in studio for us on basically that night. He kinda you do a pregame show you kick back. Watch the game. Take care of a little business and then you do a postgame show. And of course, that forever changed when the earthquake happened, and In 89 people of a certain age would have no clue about this. But there were no cell phones from it. And there were payphones and Susan found. I guess the one working payphone and Candlestick Park No in my line. Never wanted that. Yeah. The want mine and less Grob. Steam from Chicago next to me, you know, Susan calls Holy technical thing that FAA and got right now is really well. It's James. We're not do. James was yelling now, Susan, It's your fault. You hit the wrong button. Anything was anything Well, you You must have messed it up for years. But you know if that were to happen now, then everybody instantaneously would have Rory would be on the air when you're doing what they were doing, but back then it was so limited and and how to get the word out. But But Susan's line worked and she called up the control room and we got a right on the air scramble to get back on the air because the feed went down, of course with the Earth Quake and No stories like like Billy Martin and the earthquake story of stories that really built that they end into what into what it would become, and you two were such an integral part of it. You know Steve Cohen. You were on the board for some improvised shows, I suppose, er times that you had to change course and the you know, in the scope of doing a four or five hours show you have any particular memories of shows that kind of evolved organically when maybe it wasn't necessarily supposed to happen that way that night. Yeah, when? When? When it was announced that magic Johnson had HIV and you know, none of us really knew what it meant back then you immediately thought it was a death sentence and Never forget working with Mike and the mad dog and I happened to be producing that week. And I remember having to talk them into there was one documented case of of a player giving another player the HIV virus through sports contact, and it wasn't an Italian soccer league. So I had to convince my king Chris said. Look, I'm going to get this doctor on from Italy. He doesn't speak any English, so I'm going to get an interpreter on and we're going to do the interview that way. And they thought I was absolutely crazy and, like, just just go with it, and they did the interview and it was absolutely amazing as they stopped to talked about how the virus was transmitted. But you know, that's something that really stuck in my head. In terms of just, you know. Fact finding and trying to advance a story and and really give people food for thought in terms of covering that story, and not being judgmental and just kind of you, no matter what he still says to this day, you know, TV. Let the show comes to you left the show comes to you. And it's very true because you have to let it develop in. You know, Too many people you don't want to go on the air is no idols and all that supposed to, you know, just kind of learning together as we go along and and advancing the story and creating something special. And Mike and Chris did that in covering the HIV story with Magic Johnson, who thank God Is is doing amazingly well. So many years later, you know, and I remember now that you were talking about that the night that Mickey Mantle died and and of course, there's no cell phones and there's no doing this from your house. And whoever was on the border, however, was programmed drove Mike Francesa drove in from his house to do that to do the the shift. When Mickey died, because that was his guy, and he would know what to say. And all that. And it's so it was all it was all geared to the story instead of the story being here, too, who's on the air, and that that was a different and I'm not sure that would happen now. Remember correctly, Steve, You might remember this too. I believe that that Happened on a weekend overnight. And I think Bob with shoes and was on the air, doing an overnight show, and Stephen I were driving back from the airport after a jet. Preseason game. Um, when? When that news came out, and every men Bob, who's a terrific broadcaster was, you know very, very young. You know, doing it over. I'd show on f A A And and I do. Remember how pointy wasn't what a nice job he did. Hosting a show like that. Yeah, He was a mean so amazing. And I remember it was very it was. It was like, I don't know. We landed like three in the morning, Eric and we're driving back and he just You know, he did. He did an amazing job. Now the one thing I'm going to state and it is a Sunday morning, Okay, one thing that I was very, very proud of. In helping put together and having a very successful run was bagels and baseball with Hallie Rose on Sunday morning, and then how you and I So much fun. And you know, when I think of when I left the band and all the different reels of tape that I took with me So many of the reels were filled with with interviews that how he did with not only Hall of Famers, but our current players, and it was just a wonderful, wonderful show that I'm really, really Proud to have been a part of you that you know on it. Thank you. Yeah, I have one question because my sources within the industry one of whom is on the air with us, right now tells me that.

"In baseball or right there I don't know if their end of the Dodgers are not right now don't really care we got a month to play their close enough. so it's really interesting all right you guys are back on the phone quick this afternoon you're looking for the Yankees I apologize for not being the Iraqis I can say. Susan I thank you but I don't think it's quite the same. you know that's really where my skill level ends Larry in Allendale is going to kick off the phones on the fan hi Larry. Larry left us. Rick in Tampa up next on the fan I wrecked. trouble with your Levi a welcome back buddy it's good to be back for though yeah well with only twenty minutes ago but. Hey you know what yeah yeah the line up look at would garner was batting clean up a couple times in the last a couple weeks so you know line it's changed a lot and with the Yankees. the you know what regarding these relief but yours now I yeah obviously I was not excited when well born put out that that kid doll yesterday when you after happened pitch that you're you know a great game for a half you know as in pitch well see and do at and it's like you know and then even chance that as you know I'm really tired of him as well now did you ever thought of the idea I mean is it is it too far fetched to have our guys who are re having like Severino but chances and even George being backed Montgomery to be up here and plug them in for a couple innings with something like that versus these other relievers or just so bad I'd rather speak or even Debbie Garcia for that matter I mean I don't know when we're going to see him but don't you think that might be an idea of those use those guys instead for an ending your job but they're not ready better than doll yeah no no no don't don't throw doll under the bus for one bad outing this is what we do this is what we do he was awful yesterday so what. I mean. they didn't take doll because they couldn't get anybody else I wanted him. and you expect every guy to come up here and just be aces. I mean it's silly they're going to get those guys if they can't because their their future doll may not be their future. but you know there haven't been many dull moments at the stadium and there was yesterday where's the rim shot. JC doesn't kill me Robbie in Lenox mass is next on the fat Arabi. there you go that's a lot better. hundred dollars green and wrinkled. exactly what we get the baseball it's always nice to talk to Chris listen I got a bone to pick with you because about a few months ago you and I were talking about the Yankees given away games and how ridiculous it is now that you don't want to win every game well yesterday was a prime example I'm screaming at Aaron Boone go what the hell you put this guy in four wears out of either one of zero zero tie you know Chris what he's saying to the fan that pays a hundred twenty dollars for a box seat as having gone to Yankee Stadium all year save this morning and in the seventh inning and we decide to forfeit the game my point in the twenty six guy your roster that to me that Billy Morton's turn over his grave I mean that is so ridiculous your plane for October at the beginning of September I mean I'm sorry that just ridiculous do you want to win every game. yes I will do what I win every game because that's what you're supposed to do with a professional okay I mean when I see you know what's rivers between it and the eighteen tank in the sink and a baseball team tanking because of one war games and they want to place there's a there's a method to both there's a method to both and tanking is different than arresting they're on their way. now when you're with Chris nothing special fan because the baseball game expecting to win. there's no contract there for the fan they shouldn't expect. yeah but it's it's a the thing is Chris it's what you want to do what if you went today to see deedee play what is your idea will be sitting guys every day's crazy too but I understand why they do it but then again I don't understand why they do which is get cal Ripken junior call you know it's it's Chris let's face it these five in page outside on that point as you want within GT Davis play last night what is going on with Callaway gonna bring for million once you bring them in at the beginning of the ending. hello is not very good. get don't stop with the Callaway he's not very good he's never been very good there's never been a time where as I used to say about Todd Bowles. if you think you could tell me what he's good at one of his best qualities what makes him good why do you like him what does he do well that sets him apart from other people in his industry. like in our business people will tell me why they like JJ or while the like Mike or why they like Carlin. or why they don't but don't tell me either way. with specific examples he's always talking about you don't. they have reasons why they like me one I don't. here. this guy doesn't have anything to hang his hat on. he doesn't have any special qualities and he has no resume that proves he's ever had them. so now he's managing a big spots and again with the comparison doubles I would always said and we never really got a chance to find out it's a for the one game that they lost to buffalo and that is. you can't judge these guys until they get into these spots where everyone's watching and the decisions matter to people. when you're twenty games under. your plan December football at four and nine no one cares what you do. but when you're in a race and you played well on you. climb back into it and you have a lawn so and you have McNeil I do have a starting staff. people are gonna pay attention and that's when you find out if your guy has it or not so far there's no indication he has it but as I mentioned earlier in the show I don't blame Callaway for their situation I don't I think he's below average but I don't think if he was above average they'd be in much better position I just don't buy that eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Yankees in a rain delay we will get you back to the stadium when we find out that they are ready to go till that time I'm here J. J. after me so we're all set we're in good shape on the fact. travel sites.

"If there's an injury, which is like, totally confirming, the report will not confirm it or just the Mets. But baseball is one of these weird places where the general manager, we would agree has more power and important then the manager. And yet it somehow frowned upon that the general manager the. The boss who can fire, you would tell the manager, what to do like as if the manager as Mickey Callaway as if mother bleeper, spewing. Mickey Callaway has earned the right to not listen to his bosses. Well, let's you said he's a second year manager of little accomplishment. If you're talking about a fifteen year manager who's won a couple of championships. The that's a whole different situation who's taking the lead from a former sports agent who's now running a team. That's correct. I don't think that has to do with a lack of respect to because I mean, this guy's coming from the agency world. So I imagine it does something to their dynamic. I don't know what the hell's going on there. But I love the fact that used to be tempting bows, agent because, you know, it's a point he just going to call them up. And now apparently he's making you know he's calling the shots. So he's going to tell them, you gotta play Tibo everyday. Mike. Can you just play the sound of Mickey Callaway returning to apologize because this is the guy who's using mother bleeper and then not apologizing well enough? And I don't know if somebody what, what did Brodie van wagon and send him back down to apologize, again the initial apology, wasn't even an apology. Just him stating facts like Billy Morton wants punched the guys. I didn't punch any should've seen what it was like in lebatardshow bloated two thousand back way back in the free wheeling days of two thousand seven this was commonplace. Just real quick. You know, I understand that get some feedback that, you know, I wanted you to know that in my, my meeting, Tim, I apologize for my reaction. I regret it. I regret the, you know the distraction. It's calls to the team like I said earlier, something that will learn from, it's something I'm not proud of. I'm not proud of the distraction. I'm not proud of what I did the temp for that. I'm definitely sorry, such a constipated apology. That is absolutely someone who's apologizing for reaction and not an action. I like the start of it was got some feedback. I gotcha. I got some feedback, and I've reevaluated this, but you understand the concept of, of feeding middle managers, this kind of power in a way that they would object to someone like their boss Brody van wagon to tell them, what to do Jason Vargas. His opponent. He was laying. Dan school. Greg, Cody on the ESPN radio..

"No. No specific story. Billy Morton, who is still not. I don't know if I, I should tell up because it's so stupid. But it's one of the funniest things he's the telling an urban legend about going hunting with Mickey Mantle were hunting out on in country Landon somehow they, they shot a cow and. Or bull. I think it was a Keller book is there's two two things this show up when I do a search for it. Let's see how it's funnier. The. I forget how it comes about. But they have to go to the former apologize for shooting it. And then I don't know why this is funny, but it turns out that the, the former one of the kill cow, so it's okay oh, no. I know what it was. I'm sorry. Billy Morton, went to the former instead of it was okay to, to, to, to hunt his land in the former said, yeah, I have this, this Kelly need to kill can you do that for me? And Billy Morton came back and didn't tell Mickey Morton, Mickey Mantle he was doing it on purpose. So as less less all around, but the ever happened, right? That's the joke parts. Okay. I just thought that funny of joke, but I like the fact that Billy Martin used to tell don't talk shows into anyone who would listen and it was an urban legend that, that almost guaranteed was not true. Yeah. Crafts coming up. It's crazy. How you could get away with lion like that back in the day. I like that. He was just named Droppin Mickey Mantle. Well, they were drinking buddy friends. I man, yeah. You got damn Ricky Martin, Ricky Martin, Jesus Christ. That would be a good. I'd like to see the two then go hunting Billy Martin's dead, right? Yeah. Godly mental is also dead. Billy, Billy Martin looked rough even back in the seventies. Yeah. Anyway. Yes, I don't know how we got on that team. Oh, you talked about crafty, because it was, it seemed like they were they're like focused. The satire was not just that they were doing rap songs. But it seemed like there, eighties sanding. So I thought of the beastie boys. I mean, I kind of got you didn't need to spill it out for me in that much detail. No. I'm just telling you how I'm explained to the listeners how I got from crafty tobacco brothers. Oh, they're aware of your goofy thought process by now. Yeah. I don't know what it. What do you what can we really say about this episode dairy? We mostly every we mentioned that fact that they oddly the one was kind of amusing the physical gag. They cut out of the light version for some reason. Yeah. And since George, Jamie Foxx, appear was George Jefferson on this episode. I will say that. I mean, that was just, I, I don't know what he could have done, but in imitation of George Jefferson, but it wasn't as good as Sherman, Hemsley stores Jefferson though. I, I, I think he kind of had to do that. Yes. That's what I'm saying. Well, a couple of people have said this, I agree. And I thought the same thing would be interesting. And this is what they said they were doing. It'd be interesting to do something that's like this. Like take the script and treat it like you know, like people doing a play again and not do invitations just take your own like thought process and create your own character, which is very hard to do. I realized with all these characters that are a part of the culture, but just create your own character out of out of out of the script in, but maybe he tried to do that and realize that Sherman Hemsley did best version of it that the thing is we can. Well, let's talk about okay? This is gonna take a break, and we will come back and talk about the new version. Sure. All right. We'll be right back. Tom good, Joe days. Wearing. Spain. Stable. Asia. We're back with the two thousand nineteen version of all in the family, same episode and the corner John. I have to apologize, my Billy. Morton story was not good.

He's also quite a prolific author and helped a chat copy write his last book, your time, my dancefloor Chet copy and pursuit of Chad copy. If you've listened to any radio in Chicago in the last few decades year well aware of copy, I was very sad to hear that he died yesterday result of injuries suffered as a passenger in an April eleventh car accident down at Hilton Head, South Carolina. Rick the last time, I remember a sports legend dine as a passenger in a car. It was a baseball legend Billy Martin. What can you tell us about this accident that took chats life? Well, I don't know a lot more than, you know, other than he he was a passenger in the car and the car that he was going in was the one that was responsible for the crash jump day barrier and it coming. Traffic, and it's it's just a. It's a sad story radically shut has a whole chapter dedicated to Billy Morton. Book that you mentioned. But yet said story for sure Ricca awful long time described. I know he was he loved Jack breakouts. That was kind of his idol in in the business. Can we know mention shed copy in the same breath as Jack brick houses having that kind of influence here in Chicago? I really think we can you know, it sounds like a leap, but it really isn't. If you think about it because Chet pretty much created the entire format of sports talk radio. He was the first one that did entire show's based on just sports on the radio. And you know, starting at w when he went to the loop. And then he you know, he was with the all sports talk station that is ESPN and score. He's just done at all do you? Remember?

Just see things Mokoena Mokoena there. We got line one. That was just the ten tips show, and I try to emulate some of that. And some other shows that I loved over the years, you know, he was very quick eight to be beat ac- CD e f and get done with it. You know what I'm saying?

He did a lot of friends though, you mentioned chick brickhouse chick brick houses, actually, the godfather to his his daughter. I mean, they were he was he grew up knowing Jek brick this whole life, and they were very close. Ricca Ken for did you ever find out who beat him up in the parking lot of then Rosemont horizon? No, never got straight story. Story wasn't it. That big raccoon coal wasn't he? Yeah. He was. Yeah. I really liked the guy. Would you hit me up? Once K come on big, John Whitehall. You gotta help give it back into S. I wanted I want to do something over there. And I'd say chat, they're well aware of you. You know, I mean, you know, maybe you to ease off just a little bit. I don't know. But yeah, you know, he did burned some bridges in his career. And I discovered when I was trying to book him as a guest. A lot of folks didn't like when he was a little too honest about so people. Terrific. I really am very sad. And that he's gone. And I hope I'm sorry that that car was the Causey accident we'll have to wait. But I certainly hope there wasn't you know, and Billy Martin's case the other guy was drunk driving, the car and roll down the embankment and upstate New York. Drinking one o'clock in the afternoon.

"In the off season. So I don't think the have to look at the Red Sox and be resigned that they're not going to win the east for while we'll have as good a chance next year to win the east is the Red Sox. And I think that the teams that are going to be down will be the Blue Jays in the the Orioles and Tampa Bay because it can be tough to overtake the eighties and the Red Sox over the next five, six years. That's how good their nucleus is. And that's how young it is. Who do you have one in this series ale c. s. Red Sox Houston, Astros it's hard for me to bet against the champions. The Astros you everything so, well, I believe that the Astros starting pitching is better than the Red Sox. A one through nine, their lineup is better than the Red Sox or Red Sox. Top of the lineup is great. Bottom line is a little light. I wouldn't put anything past this this team, though. I think Alex cores in exceptional manager who has the ear of his team, not only do they respect him, but I also think they fear him just a little bit, which is important in any manager, and but you can't put experience away and the Astros know how to do this. They'd done it before. They don't just have one as in rural Lander. They have a couple of them. So I think I think they could beat the reds just said that the Red Sox not only respect Alan scorer they fear him and that's a good thing. How do the Yankee players feel about Aaron Bill after year one, I think that Aaron does most of his disciplined behind closed doors. He's not gonna throw any chum to the masses to Ripa player. I think that they respect him. I have no idea about the fear factor with it, but he's likable. I think that he has a great reporter with the players. I think he gets the most out of them, and I do believe that there's a respect their the fear. He doesn't let that out. He's not going to re ripping players in public, and I don't think the eighties wanna manager to do that. And you know, last year Joe Girardi ripped Gary Sanchez in public. And I think that that was one of the things that let to him not being brought back. So whoever is going to be hired as he Anki manager was not going to be taking his players on in the media. That's the Billy Morton and Lou Pinella days. They're not. They're not coming back. Last question, who's winning the pen in the National League. You know what? I really liked the brewers, although the dodgers affordable as well. I don't wanna hedge since I, I was trying to speak the truth to you. I'll take. I said the World Series is going to be Milwaukee against the Astros. Wow, you just trying to depress half of America, but that's all right. It's okay. Is that right? I made the other half happy. That's all. Did you did then? Listen Milwaukee them cardiac kids. I like him and yellows is the real deal. No question about it, but I just want the dodge to win the World Series for the first time since one thousand nine hundred eighty. It would be nice. I'm just saying, I don't think. You know who I really depressed, what the executives at FOX. I think they'd rather have Red Sox. Appreciate you, Mike. Okay, thanks so much buddy. You got up. All right.

"Wanted them face. I told them you know before the game. I said you you may be who I go to in the fourth or the fifth inning potentially. If if it's a part of the lineup that I want you face and in that spot. I just felt like he was the guy. And and so we got him ready for it. And and he came in and was and he was lights out. I still can't connect that. He's the Yankees manager. Just I don't know. He just doesn't he stop each player. And all that he's a hell of a hell of a manager. I mean, but he just his his his voice the way he looks. It's not like Joe Giradi. I know the lock the Matt the clubhouse Hayden them the players hated him. I know I know that he was a Yankee though, Billy Martin belly was the man on the Buck Showalter, not so much. This is what Boone's like that. Whistle. Book was a Yankee. I can't explain that's I need like that. I'm going back to like, I keep mentioning blue Martin that salty error. With the Bronx palm, a manager should already wasn't like that Girardi was too busy was doing push ups in the Harry fit like the film. The Phillies manager he. Jones gay Pat Cash watch the game and eat eight almonds. Yeah. He's he's he's big whites pan. Right. Avocado. That's right. Opinions uruguay. Yeah. I get it. But I think the season and went from a guy that the players. The message started to wear thin and wants to more of a player's manager. I get the fiery feisty guy free thinker TASR those guys are few and far between you're right. You look around the sport to Billy Morton that type Orioles. Oriole's Whitey Herzog Orioles back in the day. Earl Earl Weaver, those guys are not. There have been watch their Lou Pinella. Those guys are gone. Actually. Elaborated decision. Yeah. He got a meeting who's starting corporate? What's the vision for the franchise? What are you gonna do with the lineup? How you gonna cut the roster? When you our growing up was the GM would cut the roster with maj. The tina's he sees his job. Just cursing. Right now. It's a case of the GM's basically walking through the clubhouse in the dugout. You don't see the manager patron lip. No more. I don't see that. You don't wanna see a guy? Who's maybe pounded some vodka in the dugout. That's how that's baseball. And I grew up on now the athletics had an unbelievable regular season. Here's their manager. Bob. Melvin after the loss last night before coming here. I told them all in all was a great season. I was proud of him in. Hopefully, this is just the start for us. So we, you know, we feel like with the group that we have here together we're going to get better each and every year, and unfortunately, it's a disappointing right now. But to keep their heads up how about the idea of not rolling out a conventional starter list night, Bobby after the first ending we settled in pretty well. And then they ended up having having a big inning. We offensively. We we we have put a little more pressure on them. So we're not in that spot where you have to bring in trying in that situation. But you have to give them credit. They pitched really well. Pitch. Well for them. He did he did pitch very very well and trying and here here's the problem with Melvin, and it's not a matter of going with. Is not a matter of how he used the team early. They jump out to nothing. They're down to nothing here. Here's the problem. The sixth inning bring Rodney in the game. I mean, I mean he is he's an older reliever. Been there done that. I right when he came in the game TASR, I thought the Yankees would find a way to score some runs off of him. He immediately put them in trouble. Trying to comes and tries to get out of it can't get out of it. And once that game gets out of reach what sets games three four or five games over. Is absolutely over and the athletes regardless of what they do in the regular season. Can't beat the Yankees in the postseason. And this was not their most talented team. I mean, there was one point in time. They had moulders Zito they'd isringhouser closing. Too hot at shortstop, Eric Chavez, and they still couldn't beat the Yankees. But last night, it's a disappointing way for attend it. Chris Davis, Mr. forty home run. It's a really good as team five guys with twenty or more home runs have basements. Tremendous. It tells you lose the game seven two and really for the most part middle by the sixth inning. That game was over. It was I I gotta tell you. I I really think and I think it happens for baseball a lot. I mean, I think people because you know, it's a long game, and it's nine innings and lasts forever. A lot of times bigger games. I think the tone is set early. And I think that happened in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium. I think Severino in that first inning topper. I it was a tone set. And obviously judges monster is to you know, to on home. I mean that was huge. And if you looked at Hendrickson at first inning, bro. He was frustrated. Yeah. You could tell I mean, all each Australia. You know, the Australian people it's supposed to be calm. This guy was calm. You know, they're supposed to be calm. It was very intense. He was very frustrated, and you can't teach you how to meditate. Yeah. That's my gimmick. It's all another story. We'll get that later because I had a little issue my app froze for my so I could meditate yesterday. To that tense day. So anyway, I digress. But the thing is the pitcher can't show frustration in the first sitting on the road. One of the toughest toughest crowds in sports history with the Yankee fan base c that's where the. Listen that that's where the rub is. And and that's the problem you have right now. In terms of looking at the idea of bullpen in which the athletics did on nine occasions in the regular season. He's in the Tampa Bay raised it on sixty five occasions in the I mean, so it's going to be a sign of the times TASR you need everyone to click. You can't really have a misstep is once you have missed that. It's like a domino effect. When you look at that bullpen and Hendrix last night. Once he gives up that he it was imperative and he was only going to go one inning because as looked at and said he'd given rod runs up in in in the second innings. So that's why they decided to start him. Once you get through that. I didn't gives up that two run home run. You just had a feeling it's not gonna be the athletics night. I agree. I agree with you. They needed to play in front. He was a math. And I get the reason why the athletes they didn't really have a starter. You can't start Edwin Jackson on the road last night wildcard game. God bless him. He's been around time. He's had a nice career. You can't start Edwin Jackson that really no other choice nowhere else to go. But the idea of trying to bullpen to win your way to get yourself a World Series. It's difficult to imagine that and like I said, I, you know, we're just just chatting about and it sounds like you. That tone was set early. And especially if you're going to somebody's more hostile environments like a Chicago fan base or a Boston fan base or a New York fan base. So a Philadelphia fan base. I mean, no disrespect. I'm just being honest. You're going to get a different tone negative. You know, I mean, Saint Louis baseball call those that you're going to get that to you know, if the audience the home that that twelfth man, you know, if in football terms, if they are there at Yankee Stadium, and you're on the hill, and you are showing frustration. They are going to eat you up. And now you get behind batters. And you're you're you're too old counts. Your three one counts. So now guys are sitting dead read on you. Ding goodbye. That's what happens is what happens washer manage. Yankees marshawn for the right thing figured out to the Red Sox. And Aaron judge who hit the two run home run early. Last night said his team will be ready. They got a great team.
