And I'm having a hard time understanding Atta realize when I look at the machines to compare them to each other kind of to meet you really you're going to be doing it like on your lap. Literally. I don't it. Just I might carry machine over to the dining table or something and not have a plug in where somebody can trip over it all the time. My laptop here gets me about two hours without any kind of you know, dimming or power saving turned on. And if you think you're going to be at the dining room table for more than two or three hours. That's probably what you can expect that of a typical top without any dimming or power saving turned on my laptop over five hours without it without running out. And you don't have any power saving the high have running all the time. Yeah. So I mean, it depends on which working you're going to do for how many hours Bill, but I love keeping my laptop plugged in. Unless I have to be mobile so two to five hours is what Bob Dyer both saying's far as the typical session right that you're going to be quote, unquote, mobile and and unplugged. As far as the manufacturers like Dell on their website. It doesn't actually tell you. How long the battery lasts just tells you how many like what ours? It's got the problem. I didn't know what you're doing with it. So if you're sitting there doing a lot with the CPU, and it's just crank in all sorts of processing calculations you're going to drain the battery faster than if you're just, you know, surfing the internet, right?

It's a free VPN service from the folks that do proton mail, and it'll give you a little more security than not having that again, don't use your computer for anything else. You know, just go to your banking or do your investing and then turn it off. And don't use for anything else. If you use it for other things, you're you're going to potentially bring in potential threats. Eventually I might want to move some like photo archives over to it is that a concern. If I carry it over from an external drive to concern is just don't use the machine for anything online other than banking and financial work. Because who knows where you're gonna end up. If you in a moment of weakness decide, oh, I gotta get my wife something for birthday, and you start surfing on that thing. Well, that's rough. Now sudden you're not using it for what you intended it for into potential is you served over to someplace you shouldn't have poker. And that's that's the risk right, Bob, and Eric thanks very much.

"Four. It didn't take long to figure out what had happened in Chicago. Well, once they empires figured out that this is a different bat, they started raising hell and threaten the Indians with a full investigation with fingerprints and all that stuff. So after a while the Indians fessed up and said, okay, here's Albert's bat and they checked it out and it wasn't deed corked when you're when you're switching somebody else's bat with the name right on it is pretty. It's hard not identified as a harebrained scheme harebrained or not. The theft of a bat got a serious reaction from the league. There's a long history of cheating in baseball. Sure. But like any other institution major league baseball hates a when its rules are broken and be, would it's embarrassed publicly MLB reacted that embarrassment by taking the investigation of the bat theft. Fairy very seriously umpire. Dave Phillips described it as a break in. Unquote while White Sox chairman, Jerry Reinsdorf called it quote, a serious crime. On quote, it probably didn't help the major league baseball Commissioner, but ceiling was a huge fan of mystery novels and considered himself an amateur detective of sorts. Bob Dyer said at one point, MLB even talked about bringing in the FBI. I interviewed Omar about five years later. He was falling on the floor laughing later. It was all funny share, but in the moment, Bob Dyer says, the Indians were worried. I mean, they knew the guy was going to get suspended. I mean, the whole premise just didn't fly at all. And Albert bell still denied corking the bat, his explanation for how it all happened with clear. It made no sense, but it was definitely clear. He said it was a conspiracy by the White Sox who stole some of bats overnight and cork doom and replaced them, and then framed him which just laughable the entire bad caper really only had one weakness. It was in the end very poorly in hastily planned. The feds never had to show up mostly because it doesn't take an FBI agent to figure out that a bat label. Paul Sorrento was not Albert Bell's. It doesn't take an FBI agent to notice a few ceiling tiles at a place and figure out what happened. The threat of the. FBI help move things along quickly though the Indians finally turned in Belle's bat to the MLB offices in New York City on July eighteenth officials x. rated then sawed it open. They found a court core concealed inside it. There was no defense against overwhelming evidence. Albert bell was caught. Bell was suspended initially for ten games, and then they worked out a deal where he only have to sit out seven games so it did have an impact. On the night of the bat. Caper the Indians won the game three to actually it's amazing how much of this ultimately didn't matter. The Indians were one game behind the White Sox when a player strike ended the season on August eleventh, the playoffs and the World Series were cancelled. Bell served a suspension of the first week of August. The Indians went four and three in those games. Not great, but not terrible. They averaged about five point. Five runs a game at the plate though. So being down half a run during Belle's. Absence is a loss. One could directly attribute to his not being in the lineup still. It didn't really affect the Indians that much in the grand scheme of the nineteen ninety four season. When the season ended prematurely because of the strike the Indians were one game behind the White Sox and their division. The whole episode mattered even less than the grand scheme of things for the Cleveland Indians. Albert bell came back to Cleveland for the nineteen ninety five season. The Indians made the World Series the next year and lost Albert bell, but of MVP numbers but lost out to the more popular Boston Red Sox player move on for the award. As for Jason Grimsley the bat, thief. A bunch of craziness happened to him afterwards, but barely any of it was related to the great bat, caper of nineteen ninety four. He got tangled up in the steroid and PD scandals of the two, thousands and eventually stopped talking to the media at all completely unconnected. Just a side note here after Grimsley retired. He took his kids to school one day and a small plane carrying five people crashed into his house. He has family were fine, but all five passengers in the plane died Grimsley went on the record formerly as the bat burglar with BUSTER only in that New York Times piece in nineteen ninety nine Grimsley also spoke the Fox Sports about it for short televised segment on the caper, here's Bob Dyer, but that point he was a pitcher in the Yankees system, and you finally confessed that he was the one who did it until then it had not been publicly known. It was a well kept secret for longtime, no one in baseball outs. Side of the unpire 's seemed to have a serious long-term problem with it. In fact, Grimsley still gets raves for being a great teammate Bill important of the team, and he wanted to do whatever it took to have the team play better and win more it. Albert bell ever thanked Jason Grimsley. Yeah, kinda Grimsley told the times that bell bottom around of Gulf that might be as close to thank you as Albert bell could get Bob Dyer wrote a whole book with Omar Vizquel later Omar my life on and off the field memoirs of a gold glove. Shortstop was about viscose career non about the bad episode, but it's still in there for about ten pages. Bell did not love that. The funny thing was that after the book came out, Albert went ballistic about west talking about his corked bad. Denying he ever did it when everybody in the world knew he did it in ninety four shortly after he did it issued a statement saying, I have never used or knowingly attempted to use a corked bat in a game. One of the things I think may have had. Happened was that we said that all his bats were corked meaning that weekend in Chicago, and I think he read it as everybody ever held. His hands was court. So I think that might have been part of what set him off. But again, it was common knowledge that he'd use cork bats. So I, I did not an -ticipant him going ballistic, but he called up Jim, Rome's national talk show and went on and on about what a punk Omar was, which only helped the book sales. So I wasn't too upset with that bells on the on the call online right now. What else do you write about in the book. You know what? I'm sure he'd have write about all his escapades on the road and all his escapades in Cleveland where him his wife and kid list. Did you talk about that? Well, first of all, how does he know my basketball court? Because you know if he wouldn't spend so much time out, chasing all the tramps around America league, then he would know about my bad situation. And since when it Omar become good enough to write an autobiography and done anything. Albert bell retired from baseball in two thousand one in his second year of eligibility for the hall of fame, he received nineteen votes total for his selection out of a possible five hundred twenty votes despite having numbers that are competitive with his hall of fame peers, Bob Dyer. Meanwhile, rode the momentum of bell yelling about him in public to solid book sales. He got a pretty nice car out of it. Domer- head this yellow Porsche, that he drove all over Cleveland at about thousand miles an hour, and he'd get pulled over in the cups ago. Mar age, slow down a little bit. Okay, so it was pretty cool. So I had this windfall and I decided, well, you know what? Maybe I'll get a lesser Porsche. I got like the bottom of the line Porsche, the Boxster dire tells me since his book was published in nineteen Ninety-seven. He's only put forty thousand miles on the car. He takes it out during the summer months on joyrides. He's pretty proud of that Porsche, you can hear it in his voice on the owes it in part to that fateful, Cleveland Indians. Season and the cork bat incident even got custom plates made for the car when it came time to get the plates. I said, all right, I'm going to go the full boat here and get vanity plates. So I ordered cork, thirteen, thirteen being Omar's. Uniform number and the court should be self explanatory. Jonathan Hirsch is our show's producer Nishat.

"Bat. We should pause here to talk about cork, bats, which sounds like a British insult more than a baseball cheat baseball has what might be the longest history of cheating an American sport and not just regular type cheating. I mean, flagrant stupid cheating. Only the tour de France really compares in terms of a flagrant disregard for the rules. The general idea is that you, you saw the very top off of a bat. You hollow out the middle and you fill it sometimes with a cork is is the very literal definition. But the idea is you want a lighter bat for quicker bat speed, which leads to better hit balls. Crammed presby is a baseball writer for SP nation dot com. He knows a lot about baseball a lot about corking bats and a lot about how corking a bat is a little bit of return for a whole lot of trouble. One of the the more respected scientific looks into the says that might help with singles, but it definitely doesn't help for power and short. It's not a lot of gain for a whole lot of risk corking the legal, and it'll get a player fined and suspended for good chunk of the season. Back to the scene in nineteen Ninety-four. The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians are tied in the standing. Only one of them can go to the playoffs. They're playing games that are easily twice as important as any other game on their schedule games like a crucial stretch run game against the division rival games where players and managers can leave nothing to chance in the top of the first with the Indians up one zero and the Indians best hitter Albert Belle standing at the plate White Sox manager. Gene Lamont won't leave anything to chance more specifically. He thinks Albert Bell's using a corked bat, and he wants the empire's to take a look at it exactly why isn't clear, but Lamont has more than a few reasons to be suspicious of bells equipment, Bob Dyer. Again, I think one of the reasons they suspected the bat to be corked as a bell was hitting Titanic. Home runs and hitting them regularly in. I recall seeing him make some swings that I thought, how did that ball get out of here. In a high pressure situation where managers have few options. Gene Lamont suddenly has options. The White Sox manager, no longer just has to walk bell or pitch to them. Instead Lamont has a real opportunity to take the Indians most dangerous hitter out of the lineup, maybe for more than just the one game to not that he needed reminding gene Lamont had a fresh reminder of just how dangerous bell could be the day before the White Sox won the first game of the series. Six, three but watched is bell crushed a two run Homer, deep into the left-field seats in the top of the first inning. He could ruin pitchers day fast. There is a real chess game going on here. Gene Lamont has nothing to lose asking the to look at the bat. If he's right. Bell is suspended by the league for ten games. Lamont has turned his opponents biggest strength into a weakness. Bob Dyer thinks gene Lamont had another reason to ask the to look at the bat. Bell would also be rattled. I think probably in his mind, he thought worst case. Scenario is Bill gets upset and loses his concentration and and has a temper tantrum that they stole his bat. Lamont knew this wouldn't be solved quickly. There would be an official process to an allegation of corking a bat. The bat wouldn't be certifiably court until it got to the MLB offices in New York. And other words, this would not be an eyeball thing, or a matter of subjective judgment by the unpire site. This next part gets kind of see us Irish fast. When the manager goes out. The empire says, I think the bad is court young Pires obligated to confiscate the bat and block it in the empire's room. And then they sent it off to New York, either x-ray it or cut it open. Those would be the offices of major league baseball on Park Avenue, New York City. It meant someone official for major league baseball would actually verify that it was tampered with. And then Albert bell was cheating. This is a big problem and immediately everyone in the Indian's dugout knows it. They're more than a little worried several of the players and then unions dug out knew that this was a problem because the bat was corked. And once the league found out about it, Albert would surely be suspended and they didn't want to lose their best player. Belle's bat goes back to the empire's room at Comiskey the empire's lock it inside leaving the bet somewhere in the bowels of the ballpark and the middle of a pennant race. The Indians best player is about to be suspended for ten games, ten games. The Indians can't afford to lose someone needed to do something to keep Albert bell from getting caught with a corked bat, something desperate and bold. Top of the first. The bad is confiscated by the empire's, but bell who's only under suspicion of corking. His bad at this point is allowed to continue. He grounds out for the second out of the inning. Eddie Murray does the same for the third and the Indians take the field is the White Sox come to the plate in the bottom of the first for the players on the field. Starting that night, the game goes on in the clubhouse, though the rest of the Indians are determined to do something about the confiscated bad. The only person with a real idea is a starting pitcher, Jason Grimsley, here's Bob Dyer. Jason Grimsley is not one of the players on that team who stands out. I don't remember him having a great personality or bad personnel is one of the guys who was not prominent Mandaeans are sitting around wondering out loud what to do. I've been I can get that thing because he realized the Pires room was on the same level as visiting locker. Room, and I'm not so sure if Jason Grimsley hadn't taken upon himself to retrieve the bat that anybody else would have jumped in and volunteered.

"I think Albert probably led the league in smashing stuff with bats beyond baseball. That's reporter, Bob Dyer. He's talking about a baseball player named Albert bell. There are a few things to know the. I know this Albert bell was an amazing baseball player. There's no short changing that here. He did everything. Well, he could play the outfield well, he had to get arm. He could run, and here's a smart canny player in every aspect of the gang. But more than anything bells especially fearsome at the plate, he was one of the most dominant hitters of his era period. Albert bell Qatar, the seems off a ball with a single swing and did so with frightening consistency. Bell was consistent in another way. He was a miserable person to be around. He could be hostile that everyone fans and critics alike. I'm Spencer hall from Espy nation. This is it seemed smart a series of stories from the world of sports that seems smart to somebody at the time. Bob Dyer worked for the Akron beacon journal in the nineteen nineties. He's retired now in his job covering the Cleveland Indians. Bob ran into Albert bell often enough to come to a sink and brutal conclusion about the hitter. Albert Belle was a wonderful athlete and a low that some human being bell was in a Radic personality who hated the fans. I used to be known as Joey bell. And when he went through this transformation, quit drinking started calling the self. Albert bell shortly after he renamed himself. Albert, there was some drunken fan in the outfield behind him singing, Joey, Joey, and Eskin them to have a beer just writing. So Aubert turns around throws this thing drills, the guy right in the chest. They did one thing that trip. This trigger accidentally, he'd throw balls Adam. He sometimes hated awards. His teammates got Indian shortstop Omar Vizquel told Bob Dyer about a time when bell took out his frustrations on a joke of a trophy, he kept in his locker. The Indians had this home run hitting contest. One day, Omar sorta jokingly said, hey, put me in it, but somehow he won this contest between a handful of the Indians and he got this little trophy and he's so proud of it. He put it in his locker room and one day after Elbert had a bed game, he came in and he was smashed and stuff, and he smashed the trophy that Omar head and knocked it apart and never apologized. Bells unpleasant behavior was tolerated because of his talent. And also because the nineteen Ninety-four Indians we're winning. This was unusual. Cleveland Indians weren't historically a good baseball team in the thirteen seasons leading up to nineteen ninety four. The Indians had posted losing records in twelve of them. But in one thousand nine hundred. Four, the Indians were really good, Kenny Lofton, worke Manny Ramirez in right field this scale and biogas great team up the middle, Kenny Lofton, dad, good veteran starting pitchers like Jack Morris and Denis l. president day Martinez. The Indians defense was anchored by not one, but two gold glove. Winners center fielder, Kenny Lofton, shortstop Omar Vizquel the entire lineup top to bottom could hit, but no one in the lineup could hit like all star rightfielder. Albert bell. Goodwin defense looks. Man, you can. To our Bill and they would move in number thirty. Three bell hit for power and average like you other hitters of his era and just one hundred one games in nineteen Ninety-four. He recorded thirty six home runs and one hundred one RBI the following season in nineteen ninety-five. He'd hit fifty in post a six ninety, slugging percentage. He wasn't just good when he was good. He was for a few seasons, at least great. The Indians newfound success was so surprising that Bob Dyer. Normally a general assignment reporter was asked to cover the local response to the Indians unprecedented success. He later write a book about all this with Omar Vizquel. Bob came to know the team pretty well. The nineteen ninety four Indians was a bizarre collection of people. I mean, all kinds of different personalities Omar was easily. I mean he was beloved by fans and teammates it just an easy going guy. Viviscal wasn't the only one most of the Indians were well liked Carlos by air. Judge in Tomi sandy Alamar junior. They may brooding for Cleveland, easy. Jacobs Field is ready. The Indians already expectations running high time for baseball. One thousand nine hundred ninety four side. Albert bell power hitting outfielder who made the Indians lineup, but truly fearsome prospect for opposing pitchers did not. And if you're looking out for Belle obviously everything is fine. He just tore it up in spring training. Three Eighty-one average six homers lead the majors with twenty nine runs batted in and he has had a fantastic spring and I talked Albert earlier today. He said, he's just glad to get home. He was in the Indian started off the nineteen ninety four season by going just a little over five hundred through may. They really took off in June though scoring one hundred seventy nine runs going eighteen and nine in the month. They averaged six point. Six runs a game in that stretch bombing teams out of games before they could recover. Albert bell alone, hit ten home runs and had twenty nine RBI in the month going into July the Cleveland Indians or unlikely. But now obvious pennant contenders on July fifth. One thousand nine hundred ninety four. The Indians were playing the second game of a four game road trip against the White Sox at Comiskey park in Chicago. Well, bat gate was one of the more interesting episodes in the history of the Cleveland Indians came in nineteen. Ninety four in the middle of pennant race. The two teams were division rivals in for the moment they were tied atop the American League east standings in mid-july with little time to spare. The game was crucial. Ensure baseball has a massive, one hundred sixty two games in the major league season. How much good one game matter a lot. In this case because this is a division game, each loss to the other takes a team down a full game back in the standings just a year prior to the Cleveland Indians, miraculous nineteen ninety four season the nineteen Ninety-three San Francisco Giants and one of Wapping, one hundred and three games, but still miss the playoffs. The Braves, the giants division rival had one one hundred and four single-game Martin's happened and mattered more especially because the wild card slot an expanded baseball, playoff that didn't come into effect until the next year nineteen ninety-five. So unlike most games for most teams, this game mattered. The stakes were real bell. Batted cleanup that night when he came. Up to bat in the first inning in a scoreless game, White Sox manager. Gene Lamont made an unusual request. He wanted the empire's to look at Albert Bell's bat. Maybe Lamont was tipped off by a bat boy or was just a spacious of the way the ball came off Belle's bat, the game before maybe he just had a hunch, but for whatever reason. Gene Lamont thought Albert bell was cheating specifically. Gene Lamont thought Albert bell was using a corked bat.
