"We make it possible for you to contact us and communicate with us. And if you want to talk with me about anything I'm talking about on the program today. Typically, I take it from the run down the rundown is King on six o'clock talk. The run down is that source from which I extract story material. To discuss with you day in and day out. It holds full sway Monday through Thursday. On Friday, however, you get to kick that run down to the curb. And talk about whatever you want. In the meantime, 809 23938 five's the number you dial to start the ball rolling. Interesting news of that. We I guess you could say predicted, but it wasn't much of a prediction. Really. It's just the way the legal system is set up to operate, and it is operating in just that way with regard to the Derrick Shove in murder trial verdict. You know that he was found guilty. Two different murder counts and one man slaughter count. The fact the matter is there is going to be an appeal for a new trial in that case. Just as we expected, there would be because they're a couple of things going on with regard to that case that are bothering legal professionals, some of whom are now speaking out in the public space. One was the lack of a call for a change of venue. Where that particular trial was concerned. There were some who did not believe Derek Jobbing could get a fair trial in Minneapolis, Minnesota, even though the judge did not decide to move it. And then there was the pretrial publicity. That may have created a kind of prejudicial environment in which the jurors were exposed to information they probably shouldn't have been 809 239385. 809 23 w D. D give us a call. Let us know what you think. But the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Jarman, convicted of killing George Floyd. Has filed an appeal for a new trial. Fox News report Sharpens Attorney Eric Nelson filed the request Tuesday and quote alleges that the former police officers ability to have a fair trial was affected. Most Assuredly, in his opinion by pretrial publicity, also claims that the court abused its discretion. By refusing to grant request. For a change of venue outside the Minneapolis area. Then there's this other business of an individual who was on the jury. Who Was apparently In attendance, at least at one event. Where George Floyd's relatives spoke. Do you think that may have had a prejudicial impact on the individual? Well, whether it did or not, they didn't declare it on the form of that jurors or potential jurors are to fill out And let folks know whether or not they should or should not be considered for the jury, so that again becomes another reason for why a new trial has been requested. Anybody seemed to think that based on at least these situations and or circumstances That a new trial may not only be granted, but the verdict. Vacated 809 239385 809 to 3. Double U D T K Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus. Harvard Law chimed in this one juror actually attended. That event that had George Floyd Family members speaking He didn't say that on the jury question form that he was given. Uh well that well, that guilty verdict be vacated. It should be. Without a doubt. This was not a jury. This was an advocate. And if it had not been an anonymous jury, probably people would have disclosed the fact that this is a juror who had a point of view before he heard a single bit of evidence. And when you combine that with the threats to the jurors, what do you think this jerk came out now and publicized himself? Because he voted to convict If he had dared to vote for a quick he'd never have disclosed himself because he knows he'd be attack. That's not the way the jury system should operate in America. Ellen Dershowitz law professor emeritus, Harvard Law 809 239385 809 to 3. Double U D T K six o'clock talk with Darryl would on the air talking about these and other stories. Anybody think that that verdict is now in jeopardy as a result of these developments? Anybody think that Mr Chavez ought to get a new trial? In the meantime, Speaking of trials versus no trials, rioters In Portland, Oregon, who have been arrested and who are waiting to find out what their next fate would be inside the criminal justice system are apparently going to be released. They're going to be released with nary a charge. Anybody surprised by that development, even as the FBI goes after people who are involved in the January 6th riot at the Capitol building. Trying to charge these folks and jail them, if not find them. These folks in Portland, Oregon, responsible for fighting with the police, destroying public and private property, burning down buildings and just General anarchy are going toe. I'm gonna fly the coop, As the saying goes. Dan Springer, Fox News, D a much MIT said that he would not charge people even for felony writing the White House pressure the U. S attorney in Orient to start hauling riders into federal court over several months. U. S Attorney Billy Williams did just that filing charges against 97 people. But since then Williams and the acting U. S attorney under President Biden have dismissed or deferred 58 of those cases. Seven people have pled guilty, but only one is going to go to prison. And there are 32 cases pending. Federal public defender says Justice is being served. I think the federal government went overboard in some of the ways that they address these protests, and what we're seeing now is that many of the cases that were brought because of the federal government's overreach are now being dismissed. Now all of the 31 deferred cases, which means no record, no jail time and maybe some community service 19 or felonies, including get this 16 assaults of federal officers. The former head of homeland security who went to Portland to check on the courthouse is shocked that so many cases were being dropped. It's offensive to all the men and women who risk their lives in Portland for 9120 days or even longer, in some cases. Being attacked night after night after night, and Chad Wolf told me that Billy Williams, the U. S attorney under President Trump in Oregon, was hesitant to file those federal charges, saying that it's basically Oregon doing what Oregon in Portland does. And.

It was no longer her boyfriend who was a member, the proud boys and she was wearing a hoody that said, You know, proud boys grew proud girls on the front of it. And they said, for that you get fired. This is the kind of cancel culture that has been going on for years. She got fired from law enforcement. And we put all kinds of pressure on the sheriff's department saying, How do you How can you fire somebody for being affiliated with the group? Well, because it's a white supremacy group.

They've been Early deputized. Now they're actually being held. We can't have that well, but there's a better there's there's a better piece to it. It has to do with the law. Do you know what happens if you hit a cop? You're you've assaulted a cop. Do you know what happens when you hit a federal officer? It's federal charges that bypassed the George Soros installed prosecutor who can no longer drop the charges, and God bless him. There's a guy named Billy Williams, who's the U. S attorney who's now said. I am not going to approve Undead pew ties ing or I guess it's d. Computing is there's some fancy lawyer you lawyers. You're always inviting. You got too much Latin on the brain. But he said, I'm not going to undisputed eyes all these cops. So that means the next time an antifa writer hits a cop in the head with a brick. It's a federal offense and you get to go to federal prison. And all of these liberal nuts are saying No. You have to take the deputy ization off. So that again and TIFA, rioters can hit cops in the head with bricks or hit them in the eyes of lasers or shoot him with a ball bearing Out of wrist rockets. You gotta read Ann Coulter's column.

P. right eighty seven eighty seven of forty nine homers a hundred and thirty seven RBIs hit two eighty seven three twenty eight is that base is very low I mean we have only eight for for that I didn't see a struggles was very high and a five sixty eight slug but even that series ninety eight was ridiculous is that what you have I took is two thousand one okay what was it two thousand one for two thousand one he hits three twenty eight okay with sixty four homers a hundred and sixty RBI a hundred forty six runs and then he had a slash line of three twenty eight for thirty seven with a hook a slug of seven thirty okay I missed that year that's it yeah you're right that's a much younger when you start to look at Sammy Sosa like there's like a four five year stretch where your eyes kind of popped out of your head and you're saying to yourself wait this real and obviously things reduced back in the day yeah but you know Sammy Sosa for me like you know like like it was hard not to get caught up in the in the then in the home run chase that Sammy Sosa and mark McGwire put on and bury bonds for a good forty five your stress so it's funny you mention that year I had ninety eight when he had sixty six homers hundred and fifty eight RBIs we only had he only had three oh eight okay three oh eight three seventy seven six forty seven yeah but yeah that's not yeah the on base and slugging that I you know in the batting average in two thousand one was just a little bit you know was just a little more superior as we go to right field for the white Sox did you even have an a second guy now I only look at one guy I hope we're on I hope for the same guy who we Magli I didn't go with him really all right so I took maybe darn Magaly O. are you better numbers into my guy he's two thousand two season for the white Sox he finished eighth in the MVP voting that year he went three twenty thirty eight homers a hundred thirty five ready yeah he's much better my hundred sixteen runs seven steals a slash line three twenty three eighty one five ninety seven as much fun as medically was on the white Sox he the rest of his career his seasons were good but nowhere near like that one was a clear outlier for medically or don't yes he was excellent in two thousand two for the white Sox yeah that he you're right he surely he should have my guy but that was you know what I'm saying I forgot I did the same thing with Luke Appling you picked the much better Luke Appling year yeah I mean I did I would Harold Baines eighty four season twenty nine overs ninety four RBIs he but his average Israel for three sixty one five forty one you know in the here's the one thing too if you go in and and I probably lean more heavily on the stats than anything else but what I'll say is I do recognize and understand that when you start to get to the you know they'll the mid late nineties through like two thousand and one okay one two thousand and eight S. yeah doesn't I do recognize that you know whether it's steroids and in addition to like a juiced ball all the factors that were in play you're going to see some juiced up stats so in a lot of ways you know held Baines is nineteen eighty four season you know if you could just translate names used up the standard the way they work very possible he had a better year but statistically I won't Maxwell yeah you're probably right magneto had a better season before we get to the pictures let's get to the white Sox catchers yes it wasn't much of a battle but another one I thought okay between Carlton Fisk insure Waller and someone else way north Hagen provide calculates for me it was a battle between the Carlton fix this nineteen eighty three season and.

"He's regaling me with his a recount of his MLB the show season as he's playing out the real life baseball season on his his free time did you realize I don't know if you've noticed but what we're doing all the stuff of the all time single season team for the Saxon the cubs when you go to baseball reference there actually simulating the season I know you go to a guy it'll say what his stats are up till this point I do know is that it's a border yeah it's very bizarre so let's get back to it because we got a lot of guide people ahead in case you missed it we what we've been doing throughout the show the all time single season team based on their single seasons and for the cubs and white so the cubs and white Sox and we've got now to the third base position right yes actually we can I did Ventura and we did Santo yeah yes so we're covered yes W. left fielder all fields for me the outfield were kind of tough for the white Sox could I didn't find a center fielder we threw that out early yeah yeah we've got the names of Alex Rios Jim Landis chat lab and Erin Rowland and your guy happy fells yes I went with the nineteen twenty season by at happy fell she if you don't mind the guy throwing the World Series you can go ahead and look at his stats and say he can play center field for me but when I look at love field that was my problem in left field but use treated you took many but also who played left field that you've put him at third base yes I cheated he played he played third base six times in nineteen fifty four so I made the third baseman he played a hundred fifty three games a year he had nineteen overs a hundred sixteen RBIs he at three twenty four eleven slog in a five thirty five I'm sorry for living out based on a five thirty five slug which is pretty damn good but then you go to nineteen twenty she was Joe Jackson yes he went hit twelve homers but he had a hundred and twenty one RBIs he had he had three eighty two you did four forty four our base and a five eighty nine slog at the age of thirty two years old yeah that's pretty good that's his last year he never was seen again after that now I knew I would have to represent this because I have a feeling that there is no way you would make room for him on your roster but my left fielder I didn't even hesitate Fred couples leader Carlos may nineteen ninety eight Albert bell yeah I did but I know you're I knew you probably were not another bell fan I can tell you exactly why it was not an Albert bell fan because he did not hit until April was all over with it by then the sacks were so far out that it didn't matter what he did the rest of the year like and I remember like I I don't know if I've ever been more excited about a signing as a white Sox fan that when they signed Albert bell now admit the first season wasn't nearly it looked the first is it his first season with the white Sox was good but the second season statistically he gave you a three twenty eight batting average forty nine homers drove in a hundred and fifty to a hundred thirteen runs scored in sixty year old slash line of three twenty eight thirty ninety nine on base and a six fifty five slugging percentage percentage he led the league in OPS with I. ten fifty five OPS that year that's pretty good but I understand I know you had personal yeah ill will towards Albert bell so the left fielder for the cubs is a no brainer I I at least I think it is Billy Williams yes nineteen seventy yes yeah.

"In Boston. There were times series. We looked out over the field and just wondered about the history of that. And imagine all the stuff that happened. You get dropped off when you come to the ballpark, from your cab, and you see a statue Billy Williams and you see the flags with Ernie banks is number and Ron Santo, and Billy Williams, you think of Ferguson Jenkins, you think of. You know, as a you know, as a teenager watching games on WGN Rijeka, when, you know, when the Braves on TBS and cubs. Run WGN cable, just started coming into our homes, and you can watch games, Harry Carey, you know, all the things that, you know, are connected with the cubs day games, and when they finally got lights and just the uniqueness of this organization is, it's, it's really cool stuff. Claire's Daniel Murphy coming around, offensively thought you guys thought he might be still has a ways to go to. And he'll be the first Jerry that there's some better swings over the last three weeks. Those good city opposite field home run yesterday. You know, another base of the middle of the score. I run, you know, he's getting closer all the way back though, which is a good sign for us. But he's a good hitter. Jerry's be hit his, his whole career. You know, I think that the best of Daniel's yet to come Charlie black update with Charlie Charlie Jerry in Omaha Nebraska, he's gonna play tonight with Albuquerque in Omaha. He feels he feels as though. He's ready to go play. So Charlie wants to get a couple of games under his belt. In the minor leagues. So he'll be with that Albuquerque team tonight and tomorrow. And then we'll reevaluate Charlie status, but it's a great sign that Charlie feels healthy enough to go play. Get a few reps in the minors. And hopefully join us in a few days and stuff. Jerry,.

"Has changed. Yeah. You still get a kick out of out of being on the field a bean with a team. I mean, you've done it for so many years. Is it still get you going? I gotta be honest man a couple of weeks ago as I walked into the ballpark. I'm out on the field. One of the few guys out on the were buses trains. Everybody in the grass is perfect and nobody was around, and I just I literally dropped down. And I hit my knees. And I just I mean, you know, since I was a seventeen year old kid and the dodgers draft me out of high school. That's this is how I've made my living this this is my job and just could not have been more thankful than later on that day. I'm leaning on a batting cage and Joe man's there and Theo's air. And and they both say man, we just want to thank you for being here. Thank you for being around. And I don't you know, they've offered to pay. I don't wanna get paid. I wanna repay everything that disorganization has done for me. But all of a sudden, I said, you guys are thinking me, let me just let me throw something at you. All right. I'm staying in a really nice hotel got a two bedroom, suite. I got a rental car that you guys gave me this great pool in the players parking lot. I go in and I get dressed in them right between Ryan Sandberg and Billy Williams. I put my uniform on I go in breakfast. And I look across the nurse. There's Rizzo and Bryant I'm chatting with them. I go out on the field. We all stretch together. And now I'm leaning on the cage talking to the president of the cubs and their manager. And you know, what I'm gonna do. We get in here. I'm going to get in a golf cart. And I'm gonna ride over and I'm gonna sit on a bitch in uniform. I'm going to be around all the guys. What if I were to put that on EBay if I put that on EBay today? What what kind of what kind of price bring a crates cubs fan tens of thousands of dollars because they're out there listening right now. Tell me go and do it do it lineup. So anyway. Yeah. To your point. I guess that's a long answer to, you know, a real simple thing. I I just feel humbled and bless that. I can still do that at at any point throw batting practice to the guys I used to do it all the time. I did a lot in fact result who's asking me to stream why don't you throw anymore? And I still have that mentality of like, you know, as a BP pitcher you're supposed to give up home runs..
