"On april twenty. Second twenty twenty one. Jake wagner pleaded guilty to eight aggravated murder charges in the rodent family massacre as part of his plea deal he implicated his mother angela wagner father billy wagner and brother george wagner as co-conspirators in the killings also agreeing to testify against his parents and brother were also charged in these murders. Here's reporter and net levy. I don't believe anybody knew he was going to do this. So it's it's a pretty stunning development to see. Jake widener the youngest of the entire family. Who would you would think would be. you know. Maybe the most pliable in some respects because he is the youngest but to see him just break away from his family. I don't know it's pretty interesting. The significance of jake wagner folding on his family cannot be overstated but what does it mean. Moving forward in criminal defense attorney. Mike allen told stephanie that could signal an impending legal chess match in terms of jake wagner's admission of guilt. I'm just curious about what that means. Altogether he's confessed to killing five of the eight rodents personally. Is he trying to save himself or trying to save his family. you know. obviously you know if he did five out of eight you still have three left and you know it'll come out who who actually did the killing on those other three but was probably a strategic move on the prosecutors part not to let that out yet and you know prosecutors not gonna show his cards or in this case she and when she's got three other defendants to try so they're still going to hold it close to the vast.

MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?

"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff

"Matter, though, last night, but it might matter come playoff time. That's a really interesting piece of lefty fireballer 101 101 Miles an hour, six pitches 100 106 pitches 100 miles an hour or more. I think this could be a game changer here. Markham I going too far. I mean, I think it was a great first performance, but I think it has potential to be so you know, I would again. I don't want to jump off one performance. But I would be surprised if he's not added to the playoff rounds now, just because What he gives you and let's be realistic. You know, I don't think you can appear like back to that games or throw most blending. I think it would be a very controlled usage because the young man had pitched what three and a third innings in a game situation that counting the Schomburg You know, live, be peas and simulated games and whatever out, you know, inter squad game they had out there three and a third innings this year for Tennessee before the pandemic shut down this season, But you know there's not going to be a lot of tape on the guy I like is anything if you looked at a couple of I think it was Garcia. Who is the second strike out and he looked back at him and he was walking away from home plate F Welcome out kind of like that. Is this. What's this about? You know, maybe I didn't see him on the scouting report. What's going on here and really There's no until last night. There was no real video on him. And even though I think you've got like a little bit of a Billy Wagner delivery out there, although he's 166 and Wagner was a little smaller, but And they have the same fastball, so I mean, it's certainly you know, much like Brandon Finnegan did. He was the last guy to come up from from the third draft class of that same year with the Royals. Much as he did, you know, I think he could be a really impact I lately again. I don't think he's going to be You know Bobby Jenks in closing out the World Series Championship game, but not what he does What the revisit that if he does, but I think he's the guy that you can really put in key situations rate if you need, you know, a couple of hitters mean free obviously, at the minimum of the engine ing that can really help out But you can't You can't coach 101 Miles an hour, right? That's just an innate ability. And it was pretty impressive to watch last night for sure it was. It was definitely the highlight of the game. And I think kind of overran. You know, the bad law, not a bad loss, but a bad game for them, which hasn't happened very often. Especially like you senses that have 10 11 start. Yeah. Scott Merkin MLB dot com Mark, Let's wrap up with this. Everyone's having the conversation. So we might as well have it too. Who's your n v? P. Tim Anderson versus Jose Abreu? You? Oh, man, You know, I get another interview by that today, and I have to differ because I have that boat this year. W ay, I have the MVP vote. Wow. Probably I probably shouldn't say until I actually cast the ballots so I think there are a lot of really worthy candidates. Andi, I think two of them reside in white sacks, uniforms or playing White Sox uniforms. But I can't really say I'll tell you who do you think should be the M V P. Out of out of the end of those first of all, I love that Mark is on the front lines. Congratulations. That's supercool. I actually feel honored and I'm talking to you right now. Somebody who has an impactful Vote in the process. Yeah, You got me through it. Usually I have you go through by representative to do the interview, But I just happen to be near the fall when you called today I I appreciate that mark bending the rules for me. That's big, too. It's a tough call to me. Tim gets a slight edge because when he was out, the White Sox were sideways and we've seen his impact at the top of the line up. He's certainly capable with a red hot week here of winning another batting title. He plays a more premium position. He's this is kind of splitting hairs here, but His leadership in that locker room is kind of being the face of the franchise. If you will, having that counts for something So I'm probably giving it to Tim. But I wouldn't have any problem with going the other way with the brain. You know, it's it's It's. It's not something that I'd be like out. Could you possibly give it to Jose? A brave but I think I'd vote for him. Macon. I took notes on all that and put it into my voting when that when the time comes for sure. And I I think they both had remarkable. You know that. I think, you know, just taking the voting away. I mean, the Jose a break. You know, the August he had was a big contribution to the August the White Sox and and you said, Tim is a forced to make that you thought I think you saw even more so last year. You know where people forget that this team you know, wasn't a juggernaut. But this team at the All Star break was right around 502 under when they beat the Cubs in the last game of the first half, and Tim had just gone down with that ankle injury and with him out, and then you add it in. I think a lawyer was heard near the start of the second half. They kind of faded away at that point, but Yeah, He really does make a difference. Even last night. You see different Hey, Mountain lion. So again, A brave, you, Anderson. Shame, Beeber, I think has been unbelievable for Cleveland. And you know, it's rare when a pitcher gets in the MDT talk, but I think you should be in there. Nelson Cruz, Mike Trout. Of course. You just You start every year with your ballot, Which is Mike trout on there somewhere right now just figure out where he belongs. Again. I'm not gonna pick at this point, but I think there's a lot of really strong candidates in the Let's wrap up with this. Then I'll give you a different one. Have you identified? One team that you think would be Less than ideal for the White Sox to face in the opening round of the playoffs. Well, you know, I think the Yankees are a team that no one wants to face people. I think we're kind of piling on the Yankees when they were down around 500, but much like a lot of teams. You know, there's been no team. I think that's been, you know, strictly healthy in this kind of crazy 2020 season, but Yeah, That's a really good team, and there's a reason that a lot of people thought, you know when they added Gary Cole to what you know, 100 win team last year, right that this is going to be there before the pandemic, said, and this was going to be the team to beat..

"Doesn't mean I'm writing him off. I am saying may have met that timeline it just what could have been He's a good kid is, Trevor said. If you ever talk to the kid, it's it's impossible not to be impressed from. He's a smart kid. He's very aware kid always remember him, telling me that he was drafted when he's on the show, talking about how his dad is a private investigator. And in L, a well known private investigator and his dad always dressed to him to be aware of your surroundings and who you're hanging out with. He's a driven kid. He's he's I say he's aware he's involved in his community. He's been involved here with the Reds Urban Youth Academy as as an 18 1920 year old But for all that was done to try to protect him. We're now at this point where it looks like we're probably going to close out 2020 without him pitching again. And if you think back to that window for the Reds The benefit of being bad is drafting. Hi In 2016 17 18. The Reds had the second pick, the second pick and the fifth pick. Hunter Green Nixon's L. Jonathan, India. You have to take advantage. Of those opportunities. The Astros being the classic example. Sends out of this 0.1 year in a bit of a struggle, but I think he's learning on the job. As we've said was was impressive. He got hurt late in the season. I don't think a baby's ready to write off Nixon's ill. He's back today after dealing with the elbow issue for a couple of days. Jonathan India, people are wondering about So you had three guys who were top five picks and consecutive years for a team that was going through airports here, the rebuild and they really haven't been able to help this organization yet. That's gotta change in this organization has to be able to hit and that's why Kyle Brody was broad and Gary Johnson was brought in. They've got to be able to scalp draft and develop arms. You can't keep paying for arms. You can't keep chasing it in trades you maybe, but a bandaid it for it like they have. They've got a damn good rotation before came by trade. One came by spending money on him. And for agency you've got to be able, especially this size market to scout draft developed starting pitching, and that means you have to hit on 100. Green is the second pick in the draft. You've got a hit on Nikola Dolo, Who's your first round pick last year. You've got to be able to develop guys like Paki Naughton, who they drafted in Lyon, Richardson and the Antone Kid this year that is impressed from spring training into camp. You've got to be able to do that. And yet at the same time, I also believe they are with the addition of body and Derrick Johnson and Caleb costume they are creating Buzz Momenta MME. And word of mouth. They're becoming the organization that can take you and make you better. And that that allows you the opportunity to to be at the front of the line for maybe guys that washed out someplace for whatever reason. Never clicked, injuries or Philosophy. Whatever it is who look and say, I need to get right and they're now thinking they're now saying Cincinnati rents Kyle Brody, the Drive line association, Derrick Johnson, the proverbial proof in the pudding of what they're doing on the major league level, and what grounds they're starting to make inroads with. In the minor league level that has to continue because they are going to head the lifeblood of this organization is going to be developing starting pitcher By the way in watching Le Dolo earlier in the week, and that was just on YouTube. Holy cow. That kid's got some some stuff to work with. Lefty TC use goes about 66 just again watching him from the limited camera angles of Great American Ballpark earlier this week, he's got a little He's got a little Billy Wagner. Delivery to him. He's much taller than Billy Wagner. He's got a little Andrew Miller to him. He's got a little criss sail to him. I'm not saying potential wise. I'm just saying delivery wise in its 66 from the left side the way he throws the arm slot. He comes out of In the end, a slider who that's got a chick got a chance. To create some trouble up next we'll head down the stretch in this our main world was done with our number one. We're cruising. I'm an idea. Guy said this before. I like the idea of what the brewers are doing tonight. We will lay it out. I'd love to see the Reds try it. I'll lay it out next.

sakes enough degree day did agree to listen I'm upset with both sides I'm not picking sides that they they both dropped the ball it is the day that you said you said one where they told them what away let's get it on but if I may get in the nutritional content at all times even I'll give you credit I was down then you got me thinking about the team I don't have to you know bring up some memories

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?

"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.

okay he doesn't have the budget for the Kurdish we was super sports spectacular but he's JV but now let's talk about a sport you all well familiar with Chechen Juliet sleep I am now thank you my sleep first off tomorrow we will be in the morning team replacing of Bernard and **** who on vacation Thursday Friday Russell's where we'll be taking our place twelve to three not wearing is sweater that is how iconic for him right and you're going to have to get extra sleep because you haven't been in that morning routine of broadcasting in Amman to Sunday I haven't and I'm still a little jet lag I have a little cold that I caught maybe on the plane home so I'm gonna go home after the show and Sophia Hey you got to tell you heavy metal rock star husband Johnny boy no action is no action tonight urged emerging no no staff at all so what is it this study reveals the bay in the basic sleep position yeah Hey and yes Sir to perfect sleeper will somehow be an indication of the kind of relationship that you have with your partner I well first of all I have different positions throughout the evening I mean I sometimes about my back I sometimes go on my right side sometimes on my left side but I think predominately I'm alright cider you know I'm on my right side I'm facing the window and John is usually doing the same thing kind of flipping from position to position but he usually sleeps with his back to me as well cells wake you up this is what I'm up now I'm completely sound asleep the movement in the bed what what while sleeping is very restful it's it there's no there's no craziness yeah that song god as a result what does that mean that means you know you haven't slept enough so you walking around like is now no I I get it I get a decent night's sleep so the back to back as it's called the back to back position the experts say back to back position is the position that when you are in a secure comfortable relationship that you are most likely to have which I agree with I agree with because early on in your relationship and we were like this we were the Spooner's you know you're just you're so excited to be the only and you know you don't really get a cream type sleep when you're like that you actually wish boning yeah that's just cuddling but spoon like you would be you know he would have his arms are I would be lying on my right side he would have his arms around me and you know but it's not a very comfortable position but then he would move in I would switch overnight over my arms around him you know and just let them what what what it will wait a sec what you cuddled Johnny boy yeah I mean it's not comfortable because he's bigger than me so my arm goes up when I try this very young man so that means today was the big spoon yeah but I'm a big spin and a little spin it just in time now how is that possible we'll have a big spoon in Lisbon at one time a big a big phone at one time a little spin why is it's hard for you to resent modelers yeah that's hard for media what do you guys it's a man's it's a man's role I get what you're saying because a pillow so cold cuddle woman yeah I'm not in the role of the woman the cut on the man that is I'll pull lease so when a woman grabs your hand then that means that it's on mainly because you're supposed to be the one to grab her hand what usually because my hands a little too frisky so that's why they grab my hand sometimes I got I feel a sleep I got to go to sleep well be that as it may I'm a comfortable secure relationship partners typically we themselves away from the spooning position and they go into more of a Hey baby kiss you good night and we're on our own I find that difficult about my my let's open up our phone lines to our many listeners out there there are more position going back to back means that you are you a solid in your relationship if all of a sudden your partner is cuddling you you may have a problem no now unfortunately I think you jump the gun on that one your partner also could be unfaithful to you if you're in the back to back position which is it does make sense still in the same bed but then you're back to like you don't know it's it's that space between you so that would mean that your partner is cheating on it could mean that he's got to go mon it could certainly mean that yes it could now there is another one it's called the back kisser I feel the John and I are more like that we tend to wear our backs are facing each other but there's a little less space in between us I think that is a good sign I think a lot of couples are that we don't we too far away but we know we when we wake up in the middle and I just briefly because this motion but we we still on a little bit of space must find a formal lessons out there if they buy into this study one eight hundred eight four ray W. A. B. C. that's one eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two and I like to hear from women the cuddle the men in their lives yeah and I love to hear from the men who think that all that's a okay that doesn't make me any less manly that is weird that you would even that when a man is supposed to be protected yeah well the man is protected until he gets uncomfortable on his right side then he wants to switch the left side which is that I roll over to my left side and then I put my arm around him but his body is back it's too big so my arm gets tired because it's kind of in the upper position so that I have to move back that's usually when I go on my back and then he'll usually move on to his back to the we're just laying facing upwards both of us count it sounds like this line of action going on there's no planning this is not like some sort of you know sort of diabolical thing that we're not allowed to get going on now no and you're able natural it's very organic wow yeah and if this exists with all your many other partners in your life I would like to not talk about that I don't remember Bennett being with partners don't you it was just an etch a sketch you just eleven eliminate them yes I limit them god you see no I do remember being in a relationship I was a bit of I was a backpacker your like you'll have an old one she is all of a sudden said you don't ask me about my six seven goal modded said I've had on this site will man anyway let's go to allow use calling from upstate welcome to Curtis and Janet said Juliet to hear it W.

Yeah, this program is nominated for a sports EMMY again back to back years, and I feel like a winner already just getting nominated, but, boy, it would be whenever anybody says, it's just nice getting non. No, it's really nice when you win. Yes, it's it's there's a window of it being really nice to nominated. And that's from the moment, you find out your nominated right up until they announced the winner. That's when it's really nice to be nominated after that. It's useless. Yeah. Because then you get disappointed. Would you rather not get nominated and or get nominated and lose because I'll take the loss and I, I know the high is really high, but the low is really low because last year I was bummed but I was bombed for everybody who works behind the scenes and then you guys to get an opportunity to go up on stage. And I've had that opportunity many times and. Ause dramatic effect. Yeah. I it would be great. We would we would turn this whole medium upside down. I think at this program one this for Jimmy. And that's what we tried to do where we're disruptors here, but this is what's going to happen. I think the rundown is the best studio show is the second award in. I hope because we are getting up when they say in the winter is we're getting up in mass, no matter what we're either getting up to go on stage or we're getting up and walking out going to the bar now should we pause in case another show, so we don't look like the pistons when the bulls beat him in the playoffs. We don't wanna walk out like is eight and the guys right past and not acknowledged them. Yeah, I would acknowledge let let's say outside the line win. So we and the winner is in, and then we stand up outside the lines, just golden, we're adding, like, that's it. But if they say in the. Inner is oh my God. How did this happen? The Dan Patrick show.

Brought that flask with him a couple of times. Yep. I'm here. There's a flat. Yeah. But I'm thinking you know, champagne we just for champagne all over. So what do you think what if we each had to pick one person thank? But one, okay. Now, I'm not gonna speak, but let's say you when we win. I'm just going to go up and say thank you very much. And then I'm gonna say got back, I'm going to step back and then the rotation is going to be as follows. Paulie Ugo I, I. Yes. Seat, no-go second, mclovin, and fritzy's got cleanup would ever. How many seconds are left? That's all fritzy has yet mclovin, but there's some people that have to be thanked. I feel like some of going to have to take a bullet for some people like we don't get to go personal. We have to think certain executives. No, you don't know. That's what every other show does where they kiss up to the executives. How about we just thank the executives now. I want to thank the other shows for being just a little worse than we will see.

"Last night. You had a no hitter. We always kind of get yourself a little no hitter. We now have three hundred no hitters in the history hundred that includes the two that we've had in the postseason, obviously, Don Larsen and Halliday Mike fires. Join the club of doing it multiple times as he pitcher no hitter last night. And what was weird is staying up? I'm watching them at game. Put some other random games onto the TV's maze. We'll put it on. And the as game is in starting as reds curious. Delays reds wasn't at the lights or something. Yeah. I figured it must be a rain delay. And then it's revealed that they couldn't get the lights on or something. It was a Bank of lights that was out. So they didn't start that game too. Well, after eleven o'clock east coast time so for the red fans that will watching a rough night, and then they got no head and there were a couple of great defensive plays in that game. I saw Laureano climbing the fence and center jerks and perform made some nice place, and it was a close game. It's not like it was eight nothing. Let's just let him get his no hitter. But I love the fact that Bob Melvin led him complete it because a no hitter that's combined does feel like that one member. The Astros had against the Yankees time Wagner finished it the difference with that is that was an injury. Royals wall. Started that gaming, right. They kind of had to for a while. I could remember every guy in that game. Pete Munro, the local product was one of them, caveat doto ravage Billy Wagner that may have been one other guy. But yeah, they combine the no hitter. Again, it doesn't doesn't get it done for me. That one I get because it was an injury. But when a guys at one ten up take tickets take him out of the game. Mike fires ended up throwing a hundred and thirty one pitches with which in this day and age his maybe oversold. Yes done. That's it from fires that right? The other thing last night is who pitched a complete game shutout which never happens, and he was able to do it by throwing ninety three pitches. So we've had to complete game shutouts in the last week Hendrix for the Chicago Cubs and Ryan last night who does the sub one hundred complete K one hundred four game. Yeah, he got over a hundred that was coastal certainly. Gave it a nice home runs. Oh, those guys don't not hit home actually in the dodger game. Justin Turner, hit three horns kids come away. 'cause I can't like him. You know, what I don't like them. Sorry. You mentioned never let him go. Get it. Just the Mets. Well at the like him, you don't have to like him. But when he did a great job against the Mets individual series won the series. Anyway, what's the dislike summit? But he bothers me. I know what it is to say. What it is. You don't like the red hair more, here's fine. I got no problem. You know, his new look this year is he grew to beard out, which has been the case. But he cut his hair short got short hair and the big thick beard. It's unbelieva these guys become the player is slow. Here's what kill me about it. I never thought at a beer one time. Bothered me was I never thought Justin Turner was going to be this, of course. But he was a very useful player. I was a good, man. It was one game. I don't know. I remember this in April against Steve see shack where he fell off thirteen pitches. A role in the rain and got the game winning hit. I just love it. Those are the kinds of at bats. He had these wars these battles, and he could play fair base shortstop to play everywhere and the Mets non tendered him. No reason not that. I thought he was going to be a snore. But why did they let him go? I'm telling you guys like maybe like the potty a little bit. What's wrong with bro? You talking to me? I of course. Terro a voter. Thanks for what Jeff McNeil of because he would be playing. That's correct enough. The Mets rate the trade McNeil this season. Oh, I got you. I thought he meant turtles got block them. So you think Beato? Sure happened. You're saying that sandwich Amine van wagon though or wilpon above buff. Brody? Oh, you so you're thinking ownership is so afraid of what happened to Turner? They didn't want to get rid of mcnugget. Four Murphy Murphy. I make sense know, I got you. Now, I thought at first you were saying he's gonna block his plankton on like that's five years ago, though. How do we know that I get what you're saying? That's an interesting theory though, that scares the Mets enough now they don't want to give the guys away Murphy into the mix. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I think Murphy may be the better Justin Turner, right? Because the least Murphy was thought to show signs, and it was always a good. Hey to Murphy. Yes. Any has his MVP run in the playoffs. So let's let him go. Yeah. Whoa net negative. He still pick Gary. Because I don't get that. He's never really, you know, he's never really never come back with anything, you know, a COPA for that. By the way, Daniel Murphy with. No, no, I get it. You're right. Daniel Murphy sign with the Colorado Rockies, Ernie couldn't wait the draftsman fantasy back now. Right. He's back. One eighty awful. I long been back. Now, I take two weeks is that a fair number Ernie. You follow closer than those beginning last week. There's only been a week and a half. It went on for five last night. And he's at one eighty he's at fifty at bat, so it's huge sample size. But I think we all looked at him and said boy going to Colorado. My God that's going to be a perfect place for him.

"I can't ignore an error. And I know you could say, oh, well, you go to Cooperstown. Which I've been many times before you go to Cooperstown. And they're still exhibits that do recognize Clemens and bonds, you ought to give him the prestigious honor of making them all Famer. Well, you know what? The whole thing's about telling history. I mean, you go into the plaque section. It makes no sense where the whole thing you could see the Roger Clements is this a matter wins and this amount of strikeouts. Barry Bonds says the most amount of home runs. But then when you go in the plaque section that honors all the great players Roger Clemens, isn't there? Barry Bonds, isn't there? So I get it. We know that they didn't go about it the clean white. You're not the liked them. I can't stand Roger Clemens. Absolutely. Can't stand them. I despise them. But the guys should be hall of Famer Barry Bonds sometimes perceived as a jerk. I don't care. He should be hall of Famer the character clause is stupid to me. You cheat? Hey, I get it people don't like it. But the game did allow it people knew this was going on ever. Okay. Putting the manager in the managers, and they knew it was going on. We're okay. We're trying to get bud Sealy again who knew was going on. But now we're up in arms. All this guy, cheated given the ultimate honour know what happened happened. The numbers are the numbers. We know they'd go about the clean. What you want to put a little note of the plaque. This guy we played in this era, blah, blah, blah. That's fine. But he stopped to tell the history of the game. And they still have to be an and those numbers are still great. And you start to put them in. Maybe. Authentic as the other numbers, but they still have to be in the hall of fame in my opinion. I can't exclude them from the hall of fame. And let's be real when that was happening. It was great for the sport. It was fun. Remember, though, run chases McGwire and Sosa. Everyone was to when bonds was trying to break the home run record RAV of Hank. Aaron. So baseball was fine. But that at the time because it was bringing the score back. But now all of a sudden all we can't put them in to me. They should be. Curt Schilling not a steroid user from what we know. But with all his political takes, and I've told this to curb before I don't agree with obviously everything he says politically, but I don't care what he says politically in terms of the hall of fame. I don't he. You should be hall of Famer. And I get people could say all regular season numbers. Weren't that? Great. Here's the thing with Curt Schilling his regular season numbers are good. His postseason numbers are legendary. Whether it was in Philly. What a championship became darn close and extended their season, then he was able to win a World Series in Arizona and then two championships in Boston. So you have a good regular season numbers iconic postseason numbers. So you take unreal postseason numbers and a good regular season number that averages out to me to a great career. So Curt Schilling should be in the hall of fame. He get sixty point nine percent of the vote is six year on the ballot. So we'll see if he ends up getting over seventy five percent. I'll give you my ballot though, if I give you my mock Ted, this is what I felt out Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, ROY halladay. Edgar martinez. Fred mcgriff. Manny Ramirez, Marietta Rivera, Curt Schilling, Gary Sheffield and Sammy Sosa. So I do bring some juice to the show. I also bring some juice to the ballot as well. So I did some other guys was to see where they would finish Todd Helton. I was also curious about Andrew Jones. Jeff kent. Also Larry Walker. And Omar Vizquel and Billy Wagner, some guys. You just wonder where they would finish Jones got seven point five percent. You had helped in with sixteen point five percent. Wagner was sixteen point seven with eighteen point one viviscal. Forty two point eight percent and Larry Walker fifty four point six and he's in his ninth year of eligibility. So you start a guy United steroid guy for the hall of fame. Is there someone that you want to.

I would need like Kashmir from zeppelin that takes a little while where we get vocals here. Now there you go boom like as I pushed the door open. You get that.

"As you know, how a day. The late today. Eighty five percent and Edgar Martinez. Eighty five percent and Mike Mussina no surprise to me anyway. But nonetheless in in need seventy five percent, he got seventy six point seven percent Andy Pettitte got nine point nine percent staying on the ballot for another year barrel aid, and the b twelve rocket barely up at all. What a shame. There at fifty nine percent last year, the b twelve rock got fifty seven percent last year. Barreled got fifty six percent. And Curt Schilling got sixty percent this time around Manny Ramirez from Washington heights wide. Manny with twenty two percent, Gary Sheffield with the thirteen percent hit the ball, very hard. We know from that, Billy Wagner. Sixteen percent. Jeff canned eighteen percent and mentioned earlier the Tom Lugt. Our did point out some enormous jumps in the vote totals in this hall of fame election. Edgar Martinez, plus sixty six to the election. Mike Massimino, plus fifty eight to election. Larry Walker plus eighty eight and more grand schilling by the way, plus forty three. Does exte- point nine percent? So you can surmise and it makes sense Walker and chilling on track for twenty twenty induction day. And while we walk is. I'd say plus eighty eight Fred McGriff the crime dog plus seventy one to thirty nine point eight percent and chilling again, plus forty three to sixty point nine percent. So just a little bit with the updating but Rivera and Halliday and Edgar Martinez and moose seen from the class making up the class of twenty nine teen. And of course, a hundred percent of with class on and off the field didn't show. No mouthpiece Jimmy from him. And I know I'm going to hear Ono the warriors of today's team. Let me say I think there are three teams in America. That are on the hate the list one America's team. To the Golden State Warriors. And what would be the third team? And I and I think we'll let me think about that. For a second. I had a third team. And I lost my thought what is that third team? Oh, yeah. The patriots. How could I forget them? How could I thank you so much on the other side of the glass, Tom and Polly the patriots? How could I listen? And and more than the Yankees, by the way and more with the evil empire. Of course in Boston. I don't I think the Yankees would be that thirteen. But no, no, no.

But my question to you is they'll never be another three hundred game winner. Probably. No, not right. Then tell me an even another two hundred and fifty game. Yeah. And I'm thinking for let's say two thousand ten. It's a picture warriors. Two hundred games. Does see what am I going to the hall of fame? You follow? My thinking is. Yes, sordo. Yeah. I mean, it just seems. Well, sure, you have to be around a long time for that. I mean, I workhorse does one hundred eighty innings these, you know, now, you know, a guy pitcher seven innings, and he's not even involved in the decision at the end of the game. Case in point the Graham won ten games this year. Yes. I mean, I, you know, I was just curious. What you thought about that? You know what? I mean. That's the next. I curse is only got what a hundred and forty ones maybe now. Well and worthy of the hall of fame is. Yeah, he is. But again, maybe he doesn't want two hundred. That's why I think it's like the magic number now. Exactly. Well, you're going to have to be around for a while. And they hear somebody had earlier you're making we thank somebody who has been around. Although now, he's retired.

"About with the hall of fame some big jumps in vote totals in this twenty nine election. Edgar Martinez was plus sixty six with the voting percentage with the election. Mike Mussa was plus fifty eight to election. Larry Walker plus eighty eight to fifty four percent Fred McGriff that crime dawn he jumped seventy one plus seventy one to thirty nine point eight percent. And Curt Schilling was forty three. Minus forty three am I right about that is at minus. No, it's plus forty three sorry about that. Plus forty three to sixty point nine percent Walker and chilling. He can make the argument here on track for a twenty twenty induction into the hall of fame. Again, Rivera one hundred percent how eighty five percent Edgar Martinez eighty five Messina seventy six Andy Pettitte got nine point nine percent. You need five percent. Stay on the ballot. He well barrel road, and the b twelve rocket barely increasing up to fifty nine percent last year. The b twelve got fifty seven percent last year. Barrow it got fifty six percent. And again, Curt Schilling got sixty percent as we mentioned, Manny Ramirez. Twenty two percent. Gary Sheffield thirteen. Percent Billy Wagner sixteen percent. Jeff Kent eighteen percent Marty is calling from Westchester mardi. Yes. Good evening, Steve. And obviously a great evening for Yankee fans and a slam dunk for Cooperstown. All four as obviously highly deserving of the Ariana. I mean what I say about the greatest closer and. The sound of the vote what spell impossible. I mean. That's quite an accomplishment. But. Have some of Marianna I game six of the ninety six was a setup man, John wetland? And I'll never forget. I'm proud to say I was at the last home game that night. Keta Andy Pettitte came out to a very emotional. Congratulations, some Ariana's family. It's quiet. I'm sure I've Cooperstown in July. It'll be bedlam 'cause they'll be a lot of Yankee fans up that to be sure. Yeah. And also an thanks Marty guy. Good job on your part. Also with Masino. Also with the Orioles in the Yankees, John is calling from parameters and John you're on the fan. What's happening? Yes, I'm very happy. And quite surprised and he got a hundred percent because I didn't think they'd want anybody to get a hundred percent. Plus, he was a specialist and that anti Yankee. Thanks, but I'm very happy that he got one hundred percent. And the thing about Mariana. Always you know, you could argue who is the best first basement who was the best shortstop. It was the best center fielder. Marianna was the best at his position. There's no argument about that. His role, and he was the best. And that's why he deserves to be in the hall of fame and get one hundred percent. There's no argument who was the best ever knee out and John. Thanks a lot for being a part of the program. Chris is calling from Lebanon. Chris you're on what's happening. Hi, chris. I remember nineteen ninety-five. I drove down for Syracuse at a couple of roommates before the game two against the Mariners. That was extra innings back member hit the home run for the Yanks to win it. But I remember one point brought this picture in my roommate. Hey, who's Marianna striking everybody out, you know, and you forward to now and to me what makes Maryono so unique. And so special in my favorite Yankee Mattingly was growing up over Rivera to me, he had this transparent humility that I could never remember him saying anything other than being, you know, he was gracious and graceful and and his approach to everything both people the sport as a whole is respect for the gain teammates and the Yankees Yankees fan, but they marched a lot of questionable characters in and out of that locker room during his career, and he continued to just old themselves to a higher standard. And to me. I think one of the reasons that he gets one hundred percent of the vote if you take a look at the character, especially in today's day and age where he got the Machado's in Harper's who are probably cost themselves money based on their attitude and people saying, I don't want this headache, and then the opportunity I don't know if we're going to see another guy with the personal. Character and make up that so needed in professional sports in our society in general. Yeah. And I think the operative word with your call. And thank you for making. It was humility Joe is calling from Staten Island. Joe you're on the fan was happening. They what's up, buddy. Go ahead. Joe? Very happy day today. Four four of them. I want to congratulate all four ball players. They all deserve it against the Bill. A met fan. I'm a baseball fan. Congratulations Mariana is one of the best out there. If anybody better than classy guy, you never see him height. But when he got the out final outs. And all that one more thing. You know, what I know which one is the veterans committee. Gotta get Gil Hodges and see. Well, listen, I mean, that's ongoing. And of course, I'm more. I'm not surprised Mariana. Got one hundred percent.

"We could find to vote for the hall of fame like the writers just to see how we compare to the writers because we spent a lot of time ripping the writers that a lot of their decisions as always oh just walked in. Yeah. A wanted to film this for some reason. Something better to film today, by the way. So like maybe like Mike Mike walking in the door. Point is funny. So before the show Ernie and I did a podcast a half hour. So kind of going through in-depth the voting and you stop by. And you eat breakfast. You're hanging right? And when you left we were joking around saying this show realize that we were recording. Outdoor. No, no. I knew you. You told me was okay. Because it I said, we're not on television. No, I knew I was all over that. Right after the show if you wanna hear it, especially appearance by Joe beningo never thought he would do a podcast you kind of did one. There you go where we go in depth on this. But three years ago, we pulled everyone around here with the hall of fame. Ballot. Just to see how we do compared to writers. And in seventeen eighteen we put less guys in the hall of fame. We are pickier than the writers this year. We'll see what the writers decide, but we again, I think are being pretty picky. We only put three guys in the hall of fame. I Marriott Rivera was unanimous. And I'm not surprised about that. Because I I don't think anybody around here that wanted to deal with the wrath of voting mean, there's no reason not to how do you not vote for him? He's a walk. I. Certain guys. There's there's no controversy here. There's no boy do I hear he's in the do you think the writers they're going to save the right? Is there a whole different breed? You know because. How how could this guy not be unanimous live heard, and I don't think you will be. But how could you not be? I've heard to excuses used in the past against Greg Maddux, Ken Griffey junior. Other guys who you would say the same thing about right? Greg Maddux should be unanimous unanimous all that and the Hughes. I heard one of them said, well, they played in the steroid era and on penalizing everybody. That's ridiculous. I heard that one. Why would you penalize a guy beaten if he's not there's not even a glimmer that he used steroids. I dunno. I think Greg Maddux steroids was like he's thrown one hundred twenty miles an hour. Greg maddux. You don't know who you steroids, though. Maybe that's the guy won a Cy Young was it early nineties that he wanted to Cy Young that one. Again, it doesn't prove resulting or can you prove that he did by the way. Well, I'm saying that's one of the rationales. I've heard it's still ridiculous. And the other one is why just don't want to put anybody in the first bout ridiculous. Yeah. Well, someone used that last year and I bought a little bit more even though I disagree now. I'll mention it because he's on air around here. DA from CBS sports. Okay. Was the one person last you who didn't vote for Chipper Jones. Okay. It's I approached him. I wasn't was just curious. I said, you know, just kind of curious why did you vote for Chipper and his answer was he's a hall of Famer. I just don't think of Chipper Jones is that first ballot. No doubt it. Now. I disagree with that. If someone's a hall of Famer all vote, of course. I do have less of an issue with that. I would with Marietto Matic's or gray hair was not on that level. Is he? Mariana, greg. No, he's not. He's not he's he's kind of a next year guy. The second guy who got in with ninety percent of the votes of fairly easily first ballot. Roy doc Holliday. Now, he's going. Yeah. He had a great career type was he retired five years already. Because that's the way to the rental. Clemente rule. That is correct. That is correct. He hasn't been retired early. You're saying it's been five years has he died before the last often vote. I think. Oh, I thought that was like the Roberto Clemente rule. Boy, I tell you time has flown by ROY halladay has been out of baseball 2013 was his last go. Now, I'm feeling all Joe. Wow. He was great, man. He was all he's also one of those guys. I hate to say this who lost it out of nowhere. Off a year they lost. But I loved about him as he completed games man in an era in which we started to see the complete game die. This guy. Led the league in complete games. Five straight years seven times nine complete games. A year was aiding eater. He was let's see two Cy youngs. Right. Second place to other times the no hitter in the playoffs and a perfect game during the regular season. Right. So yeah. I don't think it's much of a debate. He got in very easily and the third guy got in with the bare minimum. He hit right at seventy five percent. And that's Edgar Martinez. Yeah. I voted for her as well. He's a he's a borderline hall of Famer I'll say that I did vote for him. But he he is he's borderline. He's not a cut. No doubt about it guy. He's a guy. I didn't vote for Edgar Martinez. And I know he's got great numbers. And you want a few batting titles. And I think his overall numbers are very good. And I'll admit I think the D H thing does hurt him in my eyes a little bit only because in in play position. And to me is a physician it is. But I didn't look at him over. He's over. Well, David Ortiz is clearly I I get that. And the other thing about Edgar Martinez said he's borderline a good Martinez. Did you ever feel maybe for one year that he was truly the best hitter? Seattle Mariners probably the best. Reason a big reason besides you know, he look he was a very good player. But Marianna if I'm not mistaken. I know we've we've talked Marianna at times he said the toughest guy for him to get out was Monte. I understand that what you're saying lot. That's that's a compliment. Right. But he was always to me the second or third best hitter in that lineup. Whether it's trae ride era guys in a lineup though. I mean, those guys are two of the all time greats even though whatever you want to say about A rod those guys are are way up. And you know, I agree. And I'm not even saying it's fair. I'm just telling you why in my brain. I had a tough game for him. I didn't think that way as great of a hitter as he won. I get it. And for us like we as a people around here. Only voted fifty five percent of the ballots for him last year. And he made the big jumps to seventy five percent. None of these steroid guys got in. They didn't the closest was Barry Bonds. He got sixty seven percent, okay. Last year. The writers had about fifty six percent. So we're more pro steroids, but not enough. I know I know you down even voting for Sosa now because I I can't be hypocritical about it. Now. I if I'm going to vote for all the steroid guys. I got vote for all of them. I don't think it's hypocritical to pick and choose because I think every scenario is different. Yeah. Barry bonds. We know didn't do steroids the first part of his career. We don't know about that. Yeah. His whole career. It could be and it kind of looks like it is. But I, but I still I still did obviously I voted for Manny. I'm a big Manny fan anyway, so many is still hovering in the mid forty year for us and the writers likes guy either which doesn't help but by OSs. Well, no, I'm just saying overall. I don't know maybe fans I can't stand up because he's got the Yankees. You know, he's one of the all-time Yankee killers funny thing about Yankee fans is that Yankee fans around here. And we have a lot of Yankee fans didn't vote for Mike Mussina. Mike Mussina did horrible. Get into. Yeah. It looks like he's going to get in on the real vote with us. He got only thirty eight percent. He fell behind. Fred mcgriff. Jeff Kent, Manny Ramirez, Roger Clemens Curt Schilling Barry Bonds, and obviously the three guys that got in around here. So that's the only three guys we only put three guys voting. That's it always Mariann. Edgar and holiday, right? That's it. And last year we also only put three guys in the writers put a fourth. They put Trevor Hoffman. Right. And the year before that we put two guys in they put three guys in. So we are pickier consistently. Then the writers, right? We tend to be tougher greater. We wouldn't add Harold Baines at least Smith and. You know, and we elect Jeff Bagwell, and we didn't elect Tim Raines and twenty seven hundred but they got in any way, and he did not elect Trevor Hoffman. He wasn't even close with us here and same thing for Billy Wagner this year. Billy Wagner, got seven percent of the vote with us. So we're we're tough around here martyrs. Yeah. Yeah. I think the whole fame now is just to analytical for me. I mean, like, you know. Sabermetrics analytical. Analyzed too much. Yes. I too much into what the numbers were. He did you watch the guy play. You know, playing off and say you don't want. This goes all famous guy wasn't all if I I agree with you. And I tried to do more of that this year. That's why statistically with Edgar Martinez. Well, voted against I understand people call this like I was reading like Joel sherman's article today. He's talking about war, and we get we get. We're getting a little. Went to vote for the president here. It's a little bit. You know, you got to be a little more relaxed about would forget about were Edgar Martinez. Launch tunnels. He has great numbers is lifetime. Batting average a three fifteen. Hi. Three hundred and eighty home runs, and he was never a homerun hitters wanna hold that against it. But three nine three hundred home runs still it really wasn't home run though. You're right only thirty home runs once he ended up having a three twelve career average the number. Forget you in this world. Will you can take whatever number you want? They're very good for Martinez. I'm simply thinking I watched them with the Mariners. I just it was a really good head. Really good. Didn't think a hall of fame? That's the problem. I have with Sheffield Gary Sheffield's numbers. I don't know how I'd argue against this number five hundred home run guy. But I watched employees and while he scared me and he hit the ball harder than anybody. I've ever seen. I don't know. I just put him on that. Fanin instead. So I'm trying to do what you said, which is don't analyze. Channelization? I mean, you know, you stop breaking this down you breaking that down. I mean after a while. It's like, you know, it's just it's it's you're dizzy, you know, what I'm saying. Right. And I try to simplify it a little bit. But oh, it's a tough process. I mean, it's one of those things where PD's in the eye of the beholder, man. Plus, I think we all have a different bar for the hall of fame. I'm trying to keep that bar very high. Right. I don't want to change it because Harold Baines got in the hall of fame. Yeah. Guys, it shouldn't be in Iran. I mean, let's be honest. Smith Cup the mind Maserati guys that shouldn't be in that are in right? So should Lee Smith getting in make you vote for Billy Wagner because Billy Wagner was better. Billy Wagner was better than Lee Smith, even both Billy Wagner. Do I agree with you? So you're not letting who's involved. I would not evolve. I didn't think Trevor Hoffman was all his he was closer to I guess. But I mean, the guy he had a lot of saves. Okay. Whoop. De. Oh. We're biased against Trevor Hoffman. You know, why? Because he the Mets would have been the home field. That's one of the parts. Here's the other part. Right. Not that mattered. Anyway, they ended up not mattering that's a part of it. But here's the other point. I think this is significant in this town because we watched Marianne that's every day. We watched the best of all time. I just never looked at him. When I think of the great really great closes of all time, obviously Marriott. I dig it guys like goose, I think a guys like Dennis Eckersley guys like Bruce Souder. I mean, these are the guys even guys like, Dan cuisine. Barry, why don't think is in all fame. I don't think he's in these. I even sparky Lyle who's not I think a guys like that. You know what I mean? I don't think Trevor Hoffman of Billy Wagner Trevor at least mid forget it Trevor Hoffman for seven years was probably undoubtably the best closer in the National League. And I think cell guy. Well, obviously you got in. So it matters not with us. Okay. You why are we thought of as a whole? And this guy doesn't even get close Ernie thinks, I'm crazy. I'm not sure how you feel bad. I think Andrew Jones is a hall of Famer and has very little to do with his offense. It helps. It's that. I watched him and thought he was the best defensive centerfield. And you could argue the I get it. I watched him. And I watched a lot of them, obviously with the Braves these sky, we're back on a baseball better than anybody. I've ever seen. He was unbe. I felt he changed games in center field. He was that. Good defensively. Any ball hit to the outfield refrained Jones to run it down. And then by the way, it's pretty good offensive. He you d fifty almost one year. He's gotta be well over four hundred brunt doesn't he ended up hitting for his career four hundred thirty four home runs. Okay. So it's not bad. No. He had two three five one hundred RBI seasons and thirty home run seasons..

"Straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. So I'll said, so the guest we're efforting is right Thompson, who has a phenomenal piece in ESPN the magazine this week about Dale Murphy and how there's this whole generation, particularly in the southeast who believes domer- for should be in the hall of fame. The baseball hall of fame induction ceremony is Sunday. It'll be Jack Morris, Alan Trammell Vladimir Guerrero who mentioned earlier who would be wiffle ball player. Jim Thome who'd had a can o Jim Thome e who should be on everyone's all time. Looks like you should be on your softball league team Griffin, rip Chipper Jones. And Trevor Hoffman. And we're in the funny Marty when you get to certain age, it's like the guys you watch their entire career another. Yeah, it makes me feel really old. Like what those guys are going in. The hall of fame, right? Trevor Hoffman was the I was he liked the first real closer. I guess maybe Dennis Eckersley might have been the first real closer, but Hoffman was at the guy that I remember that came in and just therm nothing but smoke. Yeah, and but then like got crafty and he's of the group. He's probably the most is numbers are crazy, but of the group. He's the one that people seem to have the most reservations about, but he was there man like there was who else were the lease? Myth lease myth hall of fame, John rocker, John rocker.
