"When I look at our fan graph steps charts, it's rare when the starting where the current starting player in a contender is a player who's not even completely positive how to pronounce their name. That's kind of where the Padres are. I don't actually know if it's Taylor Coley or Taylor covey or coal fire, whatever, because I can't remember hearing his name ever said. And I can't imagine that the Padres went and go into the 2022 season with him as the starter and left field on a contending team. But wouldn't the judge and Soto corner outfield be a lot of fun? Yeah, right. And I think another team that I wanted to ask you about that missed out on someone here. So the Dodgers did finalize the Clayton Kershaw contract that had been reported some time ago, but they missed out on Justin Verlander, so the mets have outbid the Dodgers for another old ace. It was Max Scherzer last time, former Dodger, this time the Dodgers were reported to be meeting with Justin Verlander and very interested in Justin Verlander. And they have lost out on fur lander and now they have lost trade Turner. So that's a pretty big hit to take even when you're the Dodgers and Meghan I talked about when we ran down your projected preliminary standings that there was a little less daylight between the Dodgers and the Padres and the Giants other teams in the NOS, the Diamondbacks right up there too, then I think there has been certainly going into seasons. I don't know about at this point in the off season, but it seemed like the Dodgers were maybe a bit more vulnerable and now that it is official that they have lost tray Turner and that they're not getting Verlander and they're not going to have walker Bueller this season. I think a bit more vulnerable than the Dodgers have been for a while and they could still make some major move, of course. You never count out the Dodgers that they could very well go get Aaron judge or go get someone else of that kind of caliber because not that they're any other players of that kind of caliber, really. But they have room to spend. I mean, relative to recent Dodgers payrolls, they are way down there, like they're at the point now where they could try to reset their competitive balance tax penalties if they were to stay under the threshold this year. And that might be appealing to them. I mean, any ownership group, like if they can get by and win without triggering those penalties and in their case, resetting those penalties, which benefits you for years to come, I could see how that might be alluring to them, especially because they just put together one of the best regular season teams of all time. And then they got bounced in October, which is nothing new for them. So, you know, if the Philly's example sends the message, well, everyone should spend enough to get into the tournament because after that, all bets are off, the Dodgers examples sort of sends the opposite message, which is, yeah, like get there, but there may not be that much benefit to winning a 110 games as opposed to winning 90 at this point, right? So I don't know. They may very well restock and recharge and enter as a prohibitive favorite and a juggernaut again. But it seems like they might be taking a step back here and I will be curious to see whether they decide to go for more of an austerity like our core is good enough that we can contend and we can make the playoffs and then we'll see or whether they do bring in some top talents because they certainly have been willing to spend for the elite players, but there are only so many of those guys left. The Dodgers are a team that they are very willing to spend, but they're also a team that's willing to spend on their own terms. When things happen, they don't tend to panic. When they had a rash of injuries early in 2022, they did not sweat, you know, going into a season with Tyler Anderson getting a lot of stars. As you hear me getting starts, that did not phase them at all. And so I could see them spending on, say, Carlos rodon and there's that additional value of poking the eyes of the Giants kind of like with the Brett butler signing, I guess, 25 years ago now, more than that, God. But I can also see them either go the surprise trade route, like what if they convinced the White Sox they had to part with Lucas giolito or something. The White Sox, I think, might be prone to doing something that you wouldn't expect is a good idea for them. Or the Dodgers could pick up a couple guys for 5 million apiece and turn them in number two starters for a year because they seem to have as good a track record of doing that kind of crazy stuff that works out is as any team in baseball. Again, pallor Anderson Andrew heaney. So it's a team that's not too predictable. And I think with having Kershaw locked up for a year, they might be more inclined to roll the Dyson something like that. Maybe they sign Michael waka and turn to him, and he has an area of two and a half for a year. That's Chris archer, Luke weaver. There's just a lot of opportunities for the Dodgers to pick up someone cheaply. Yeah, and you know, they have waited sometimes for their moment to strike and they will go get Mookie betts or they'll go get Freddie Freeman late in an off season, so as you said, they're not necessarily in a hurry and they have the talent that gives them the luxury of waiting for the right moment, but you look at their depth chart in their projected lineup right now and I don't want to say holes, but by Dodger standards, there are some question marks and certainly putting some trust in some less proven players, right? Trace Thompson becomes great when he's a Dodger, of course, but if you're trusting Gavin Lux at shortstop and then that kind of weakens you elsewhere so that well now you're maybe starting Chris Taylor at second and then you're going with Miguel Vargas at third and you have maybe James outman in a corner like I mean these are players that could certainly start for a lot of teams and could be very good and could add to the Dodgers depth, but it just seems a little unlikely that they go into the season with half a lineup that is sort of shakier or unproven thus far players. So I would expect that they will do something. Will that be cars Correa level something? I don't know, but something. They have a lot of room to spend if they want to do that. I think Correa would be a fun fit with Los Angeles. He's kind of one of those modern analytics friendly players who I think the Dodgers would do very well with. I think that there'd be a good give and take between him and the front office. I think he'd be more open to being used in a creative way than say he might be with other teams. I don't think you want to sign with, say, the rockies. And the rockies say don't worry, we're going to be creative about using it. You'll think, oh God, I'm going to be a starting first baseman aren't I?

"He has a little bit of pop like not a ton. Obviously. But it's a really rare combination of skills like looking at his war, which is just right around 6, according to both fan graphs and baseball reference. I did a little stat head. This is not even a sponsored stat head search, which will maybe come a little later in the program. This is just an organic I was curious and I used stad heads because it's good and not even because they sponsored the podcast sort of search, but I was looking for seasons that were this high, so he's at 5.8 at baseball reference, so war of 5.8 or more. And then I limited the fielding runs. He's at 6 fielding runs above average according to baseball reference. So I limited it to 6 or below because I didn't want to get a bunch of seasons where someone had a really extreme defense here, which can maybe sometimes be a bit suspect or more so than the equivalent value on offense at least, just not to say that you can not be that much above average on defense, of course, but sometimes if someone is not that big of that and they end up having a 5 or 6 worst season or something and it's because they were like plus 20 or plus 25 or something on defense, you know, you raise your eyebrow and you think are they really that good or is it just some wonky, smallish sample defensive stat fluke so I limited it to where he is on defense where he is on war and then home runs less than ten because he has 9 homers. And that's a really rare combination of skills and value in today's game or even like going back a bit because to be that good overall to be like a 6 win player essentially without an outlier defensive rating and without a double digit home run total that's really rare like you have to hit for a high batting average which he does, especially considering the era. So the last player to fit those criteria was Joe mauer in 2010. So it's been a while and he was kind of that same sort of player offensively too who would hit for high averages sometimes and other than that one year generally not hit a lot of homers. He was a catcher, of course, which was immensely valuable, but 2010 with the last McNeill season like this one. And then ichiro in 2007, and then before each, you have to go all the way back to Roberto Alomar in 1992. Wow. It Roberts in 1990 and then some 80s guys wade Boggs Brett butler Rickey Henderson, Tim raines. So he's kind of like an 80s style player. He's sort of like a throwback. It's a strange skill set for this day and age, but a really fun and entertaining and pretty consistent one, like people have doubted whether he was actually this good, he wasn't like this highly touted coming up as someone who would be this sort of start, but he is quite good. Yeah, he's quite good. You know? You're not wrong. How about that? Yeah? Yep.

"Found attachment to him. Yeah, I said, duly noted. Thank you very much. But that secondary to just the fact of how hard that is to do in the first place, you know? There is a great, great clip of Clark Gable at the premiere of Gone with the Wind in Atlanta in 1939. In which they said, wow, you know, it's all about old fashioned. Why mister Gabriel? I'm sure that to everybody here. It's great to look forward to your rollers. Do you have any do you have any expectations of how you're feeling right now and Clark give it? Well, is everyone knows those who have read the book have a very specific sense of who Brett butler is. I hope only is that well I live up to what that sense is. And if I do not, well, that's just tough love. He says something like that. And that is the case with any movie that you're making from a much beloved novel. The lesson there is this too shall pass just because it's a great novel. Doesn't mean that you have anything built into. What's going to be coming along with emotion picture. It's got a click on all cylinders, otherwise it just don't. Well, you think that movie is a big swing. Big is a big swing. Biggest movie that probably should work. Like fundamentally and yet, it is one of the most beloved movies of its kind in the last 35 years. It lives on people pass it to their kids. I remember the first time my kids were old enough to watch that immediately put that on. And it's just going to go on for the next 200 years. There's also a world in which that movies a disaster and it goes away and nobody ever thinks of it again in a month, right? We were the way things are so cyclical that we were the last of four movies that were essentially dealing with the same gimmick. The body switch gimmick, yeah. The body, the body switch gimmick of an old guy into a young guy's body or vice versa. I think that was the name of one of the movies. And we killed. You're right. I was that right, okay. And we came out last. You know, we were the last of the four to come out. And it was just inexplicably fabulous. But look, I got to give, this was all penny. I mean, penny, it was Jim Brooks and petty Marshall. Here's this is my understanding of the backstory was it. Whoopi Goldberg was making a movie called jumping Jack flash. And for two and for two weeks, it wasn't going well. And Jim Brooks said called up penny Marshall said, you are going to you are a director of motion pictures. And you are going to come in and direct this movie on Monday. Jumping Jack flash. So they fire one day. And if you do that, I will give you you will direct your next. And we'll figure out what that is later on. So it was all her. And she directed and cast everything that she did was slow to the point of maddening methodical the why is this taking so long? And I'll tell you, I'll tell you this one story, both penny and bob greenhut, who was the producer. The line producer. So we were in New York and we were shooting the movie. And look at some ways I have an instinct of what I wanted to do. But in other times, I'm desperate for anybody to help, you know. The costume penny, how do you want this? What should we do? I think I do this, but is that going to be enough? And petty shot a lot of takes and trying to laugh. So we had shot a version of the zoltar at ride playlist. We shot a version of it. Where I wish I was big or no, actually the final thing where I go back to them and try to get turned back into a kid. We shot one version of it. And it didn't work. So we ended up putting in the scheduled to shoot another version of it. Which we did. And then petty decided they actually needed even more of what it was. And that didn't quite work. So they came back bob green. We're actually shooting this scene in a bank in Manhattan, where I cash my check for the first time and get cash. With a young Billy. And bob greenhood came up and said, hey, did you hear we're going to go back and shoot some more at the rye at the zoltar machine? And I said, why? I mean, jeez, we've had three passes at it. Penny, penny. Are we actually going back and shooting some more of the results? I think we need to try something. Look, guys, guys, we're wasted time. I got to do hold the whole Michigan, and I'm going to have to get back and then you mode of state and we're going to have to do it again. Can't we just can't be just, you know, table it? Let's cut them let's finish the movie cut it together and then figure out what the scene should be after that. It's around, I mean, penny has it. And I want to try this. All right, well, we're going to keep trying stuff. And it's never going to work. We're never going to find out. I mean, why in the world are we going back to shoot this a fourth time? And bob greenhood said, because they're letting us, oh, okay. All right. Actually, I understand that. Okay. All right. We did that. And that's one of those lessons that you learned. It's like never turned down a chance to do it again. Never never not take another swing at that thing. Always come back. And say, oh, we're going to go back and do some more great. Let's try this. Or you want another take time? Sure. Let's do it. Shoot until we lose the light. I'll go on as many times as you want. That's what I do now. Wasn't quite aware of the richness in the luxury of that opportunity then. Because, you know, you're full of yourself and you think that nothing's more important than making the day. I think you undersold your performance in that movie. That's an incredibly incredibly hard moving to pull off. You're playing with somebody who's 13 year old internally. But it's built like a 30 year old, then you have to have kind of that kind of clumsiness that somebody has when they're 1213. There's some real thought put into that. There would no, there was. It's hard. I don't know how to explain what the process is, because I could come up with that moment. I don't know, man. You just throw yourself into a maelstrom of self doubt, self loathing and some degree of instinct that takes you where you're going to go and try it. The thing is, this was a while back and I had made I had done punchline with Sally Field and David seltzer before we made big. And then we made big accurate, but they were released in the opposite way. So I had just gone through this. Grown-up, bitter, really screwed up, comedian that just needed more of everything for his own ego in Salvation and existence. And we, you know, kind of like got beaten up in the whole process of trying to come up with an act and all of it. And working with Sally as well, who was a gem and at the same time was doing this ephemeral thing that I.

Poundstone pignataro actually even though she wasn't nearly as famous as she is now etc and so forth. But i yeah it does mean that more men have been podcasting longer. It means that. I still think that like we default to that for comedy. Like if you look at the comedies that are even on major networks. They're still about dudes mostly white nudes. Like even blackish is about dude. It's about a dude and his family but it's mostly anthony. I forget his last name. But you know what. I'm talking about cutie pie with. Who's married to donna. Summer's daughter. I get that and i understand that. But that's a that's a cultural thing absolutely. I think that also everything else supports that. Meaning that it's not necessarily because the talent is there or we always default to watching these This specific type of of a producer of a host or a comedian. But there's also the added layer of the marketing wing of whoever is so there's always going to be like should we you know here's mail famous comedian. He hears female famous comedian. They're going to tend to default towards giving more of a marketing. Push to the mail even if it's not necessarily something they're conscious about. I'm really challenging more or challenging myself the bias that we have that internal bias towards behaving one way or another when we get a piece of material right where we keep on pushing forward a specific thing and i absolutely agree. I think we default towards finding the least common obstacle towards consumption towards finding content and knowing that like sometimes with marketing teams or people promoting stuff. You kind of go to the same type of thing. What's the thing that's going to get..

I'm sorry i'll stop creating their own their early in there now you can check into gone with the wind but there. There's even a scene here. We got these even as seen in toronto. Where theoretically in this movie of that. Geronimo's kind of incidental to it but theoretically geronimo is causing trouble for the euro americans in the film. But he's actually set up to cause trouble by government indian agent. And there's all these moments like in. Mr smith goes to washington right. The government is corrupt.

"Over the coming weeks. We hope to have a little more clarity about potential timing of potential returns. Which would influence those talks. Obviously, if we get bad news anywhere along the line that you know, might move something up position of need up the list. But for now, we're going to continue to engage in talks about what we've identified as the likely areas that we need to improve and then see you see where it lives. That is one Rick Hahn executive vice president, general manager. Chicago White Sox after another devastating injury. This time, the nick Madrigal. He is done, probably for the year with a torn hamstring and I was telling you this morning and Not saying they're the same exact person of the same exact injury. But Carlos Carrasco, whose older he's 32 versus 24 25, he tore it at the end of spring training. They don't expect him back until the end of July. If there even remotely close. So that's what a four month injury at least and he didn't have surgery. Carrasco We're talking about. End of July, August, September October, he's done He's done for the year, at least from my standpoint, because when I saw the report was thinking, Okay, maybe 10, maybe a little 60 like, Oh, jeez. And when you see him, go down the first baseline and look that serious at first, right and just So I'm going to miss the little flea. I'm gonna get I'm going to miss him. I don't want miss his glove. But I will miss how opportunistic he is. Offensively the way he's able to hidden angles for a little guy like that. We're able to spray the ball and can't come up with a comp to him like Brett Butler. Maybe. Little guys that could be able to spray the ball right. But he has a little pop in his bat. Yeah, he does not saying he's a home run guy, But there's a little pop in his bat here is Rick Hahn. How long can your team survive all of these massive injuries? What we're dealing with here is the first place team. That has overcome numerous challenges already this season. We've seen various guys step up with the opportunities they've been provided over the four first 10 weeks or so of this season. And over the next several weeks, we're going to have more opportunities for other players internally to be given the opportunity to step up and help us stay afloat, if not ideally expand our our lead in the division. You know, with regards to some of the other things that we've had to endure. There remains optimism that some of these players will return at some point over the course of the season, so we're going to potentially have some help from our own guys internally who are going to get additional opportunity. I'm going to potentially have help from some injured players returning and obviously, we could well have an interesting next few months later up to the trade deadline based on where our needs said at that time, So, uh, it's hard for me to be anything but extremely pleased with how the team has responded thus far, too challenges like this one. Obviously, you don't want to keeping these on top of each other and creating additional challenges. But there's one thing this team has shown over the last several months as its resiliency a lot of resolve from the White Sox. I like Recon recon. You don't want to play cards with Rickon. You don't want to play cards with him because he's always gonna have the same face, he says stuff and then he didn't say anything at the same time, but there's always meet there on the bone. If you listen very closely to lean in a little bit like Rick, what is Rick saying to lean in a little bit right with because I know what he's talking about, he says were first place team. It sounds like the White Sox will try to add on no doubt if they can hear by the deadline. And so along with this, as Tony LaRussa learns his team, perfect example is last night, right? So the White Sox win five to I was very comfortable watching the game because you get a home run from Grand Allah off the bat against New age. David Wells, re you on the mountain is really good. Oh, yeah? Yeah, the big guy up there. He looks like David Wells and I'm like little portly. Yeah, I like it. As the big guy can still get it done. Give it to you every morning every morning Nonetheless, unless I liked what I saw there, Michael gave you equality as a starter. Give you six innings and eight strikeouts. I like that. But here's the Russo Let me give him credit. Write. Write this down a little credit. So it's the left hander for Toronto and you see the White Sox again tinkering with the lineup. They move Mercedes all the way up to number two against the lefty as it does it. Pay dividends. Yes, two for four with a run. Mercedes. Probably should believe me in the middle. The lineup every night. Wasn't up to two Anderson Mercedes Moncada. I'll break you in the cleanup and grand dog coming through. He continues his trying to figure out what works and does not work. He's East again. He's not turning the screws cap. He's tightening the screws on the White Sox correct. I was talking to Tom Ackerman, my friend from KMOX, Don at ST Louis yesterday, ST Louis ST Louis, and he said that Many times, Tony Would Look at the analytics. Yeah, I pay attention to him, but I'm not married to them. The front office may be married to those numbers. But I know Jonathan Hood is better than what you guys are telling me, the computer says, and my gut tells me I'm playing him today. Well, you need to have a sample of games to find out who can do what though That's the way that works. Any good manager to me should be able to look and say, you know, let me take a look at these numbers. Well, how does the player feel now? How to our staff field? Now, let's go move forward. You don't do it like Kevin Cash and go. Whatever you guys stay upstairs. That's what we're gonna do. That's nonsense. That ain't baseball. Baseball has to have some kind of gut feeling to me. Agreed. 3123323776 going to you. Have you have you have a medical cop? Let's talk about that We got Who does? The medical reminds you of now He's out of the lineup. Go to Mike and Oil and park. Hey, Mike, What's up Cookie? Buddy David X Tank When two World Series of Leawood Anaheim. Look at him. Look at his caps. I mean, you know, struck out like 40 45 times a year. That's a good 80 to 90 better. Uh, 150 hits a year, so go look at his camp and you'll see that he's pretty clear. It was 572. So there you go. I like that. That's a pretty good one He played for Who? Anaheim and the Cardinals. Yeah, correct. That's a good one, Mike. Thanks, man. Look it up, Mike. Thank you. A little flea that has a little pop. I like David Eckstein. That's a good name.

"In the Bay Area. What comes to mind for you? Well, I think if we're talking baseball one game would be the Brian Johnson. I think three run homer an extra innings to beat the Dodgers that Dell vault the default of the Giants into the postseason and 1997 when they were battling with the Dodgers. That was really one of the great great moments without question, I think covering You know, covering the 1989 World Series, you know, back in those days stations like KNBR in KCBS, you know, would send news people in sports people to post season games in any sport involving the local teams. And you know that was great being and Wrigley Field for games one and two of the National League Championship Series. And there was that unforgettable moment with Don Zimmer went to the mound and had Greg Maddux walk Brett Butler to load the bases to bring up Robby Thompson now That made sense. Except when you remember that Will Clark was coming up after Robby Thompson. So Robby Thompson struck out and will Clark hit a Grand Slam home run on the Waveland Avenue? And the rest is history. But you know, great memories of covering those games. Remember sitting next to Joe Fonzie and we both looked at each other and we said you believe with Don Sumer his setting himself up for and sure enough, he had to pay dearly. And then, of course, you know that Will Clark single that wanted In Game five and set them into the World Series covering the World Series. I mean, who could forget that the Games one and two in the A's won? I think five to nothing and 5 to 1 in Oakland in the first two games, and then we get The earthquake. I was in the Broadcasting booth for KNBR just cued up. A new interview with Matt Williams and then a minute or two later the quake hits and You know, I remember Lee Jones being being really shaken and in the in the broadcasting booth, and I remember walking out of the booth at some point, and the first person I saw was Jack Buck Jack. But coming out of the You know, the I guess he was announcing per CBS or for one of the networks, and he looks at me and he says it's nothing to worry about. It's nothing to worry about. Well, in fact, itwas you know in that, and then you know can be our is going into extensive news coverage and So I'm down on the field, getting interviews with players and with officials and And then hustling back up to the booth and Bob Lancet anchor the coverage and by the time I got out of the stadium, you know it was dark. And I went to the hospitality tent and ran into Mike Woodley. Now Mike Woodley was really shaken up because he was up in the football press box when the earthquake hit so as much as we have may have been rattled. In the regular broadcasting press box for baseball. Everyone I have talked to over the years who was up in the football press box described. It is absolutely terrifying. On. So Mike and I just hung out. You know, we you know we had a couple of drinks, and I think we waited until we just felt heat. Until he felt he could get the San Francisco Driving his car, and then I was hopeful of getting across the San Mateo Bridge to get to Alameda. Fortunately, I had been able to make contact by phone with my wife shortly after the quake hit. I was really lucky. And so I knew that That she and our older daughter were fine. Our younger daughter hadn't been born yet. And and so finally I left Candlestick very late in the evening Drove down one. Oh, one. And the traffic. Trying to get on the San Mateo Bridge was just it was absolute gridlock. So I ended up getting off in Redwood City, driving up into the hills knocked on the door of one of my best friends. From high school and his wife who might knew from living three years in Tokyo. And fortunately they were awake. They open the door looked at me and one of them said. I had a feeling we might see you here tonight. They have they They had the guest room all ready for me. And so that was that was great. And then the next morning, I'm up driving to San Francisco to get there. Before six a.m.. And the thing I remember is that you know all the power was out in the city, and so the only thing you could see was what you could see from your headlights in your car. But if you look to your left or two, you're right. It was just dark and it was a struggle. Just a fine. Uh, okay. And they are the radio station on Montgomery straight out by the Embarcadero, but but I managed to do it. So I mean, that was unforgettable. Um, the 2002 World Series was unforgettable. It didn't work out the way Giants fans wanted it to, But being down and and I'm for the unforgettable game six and seven was still you know something. I'm glad Was there to see. And then the great run, you know that if you call a home run that won the pennant and games and 10, 12 and 14 of the World Series, you know, unfortunately, starting in 10, 12 and 14, you know stations networks were cutting back on expenses. And, you know we didn't get Talyn. I didn't get sent to cover those road games in the In the playoffs or the World Series. That was a sign of things to come. I always love covering spring training every year, you know, just treasured it 15 20 years And then that ended. I haven't been to spring training in over 10 years now, so, but those air those air fabulous memories, There's no question Well, The beauty of it is that you saw seals, Seals stadium. You were there for Candlestick and for the beautiful ballpark, a third and king now thinking back Tol the change from Canada. You're out there for the candlestick nights. And you know that. And then, of course, you get the beautiful ballpark. As I say, 18 tea or Pac Bell. Whatever you wanna call it. What about that feeling?.

But off a mike marshall who was a relief pitcher of the year the year before he dated. That girl that was in the bangles are are what what was that girl. That singer I can't think she was. I think it was the bengals from one of those groups. Anyway sorry i. I had a no net. I've tried to remember named brenda. Somebody carlisle brinda. Yeah yeah really cute. Yeah yeah so anyway. So i get up. I ended up and he says now button to first base because he said if you bought the first chances are steve. Garvey was planted time. Eight ballplayer said. Steve probably won't throw to second. I don't know if his arm was bothering more. So i get the sacrifice. I think pete walk and we get a base hit. We win the game two to one and probably the most important bad. I hadn't all of the big leagues. Because if i don't but it then sparky probably sends me back down to triple a ball. 'cause that was going to be what i would have to be doing most of the year we do a whole show on how to put down a bond. I mean i it really could or you watch league game. You can see how not to put down button. They don't know how to but they don't do it much anymore. And i never understood that as a pitcher when you can help yourself. Why not be able to bunt the ball. And and you know so. I i don't know but it's it's a different game but man in the seventies when i look back at the guys i played against and played with. I mean what a blast. Let's talk about the world series and then we're going to okay you get into you get with the red your with you guys go the world series and you win it to two years in a row. Yeah the the the first year there was so much pressure on the big red machine to win. 'cause in seventy got beat by baltimore seventy two that got beat by oakland. Seventy-three got beat by the mets and the playoffs. Seventy four. they disappeared seventy five now. We actually were nineteen and twenty. Was our record. We went to montreal. We came back riverfront stadium and we were just a five hundred or a little bit below five hundred ballclub. We plan to mets. Tom seaver pitching. We ended up with an game. Eleven to four and win forty one out of the next fifty and that kind of we had a big lead. I think we won by twenty that year. We just had a huge lead. We just kept rolling. That was the west bacteria. then that was the west. Yeah we had to beat the dodgers if you beat the dodgers then you pretty much because they were always good so we go in the world series and now there's so much pressure because he's the best team like mickelson before he won the master's yes a best team to never win it with the big red machine. But they've been there but they just haven't win so now we end up car bernie carbo hits the three run homer in game six fisk hits the home run vs the red sox versus the red sox would go to game seven and i'll never forget. My locker was next to pete's and a rider says peach. Gotta be devastated man. This was it the big red machine. You had the game. Europe six to three. You know this is what's going to solidify. The big red machine is one of the greatest teams of all time. You just gotta be devastated and pizza. What are you crazy. He said tomorrow there's going to be millions of people watching. He said we'll be the only game in town and every kid has ever put on a uniform would love to be in a situation. Play out a seven game of world series. And i we're gonna be okay then but here's another thing i'm thinking to. My salary is sixteen thousand five hundred if we win the world series. We'll make another fourteen thousand thirty thousand dollars. This year makes much money's my mom. My dad does so sure enough. The next night we win the game and then the following year seventy six man. We just rolled because it was like the pressure's all off. Now let's just go play ball so we go out and we just we just rolled. That's unbeliev and then they start changing. They got rid of tony perez and a whole bunch of other was off at team and they just never wear the same. You had leadership in tony perez. Pete rose joe morgan johnny bench four guys that they teams. Don't even have one leader had four and you had you know spanish black and white. Yeah and so. It wasn't like there were any issues on that ball club. No but they made sure they were the smartest bunch of baseball guys. I've ever seen right. And they were winners will lose it too many of them by the way i you know i was the baby. I told her i was the baby on the big red machine. The baby turned seventy a couple of weeks ago so one day at a time. One day at a time you got friends.

"A little bit much on the financial side. And when I say that, I don't mean that the Giants couldn't afford it. Obviously, they could, but it might be more than strategically They feel like is the right thing to do here. But I'd love to see them get one more. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, that guy's a starter. And get him in there and then I would feel a lot better about the off season that I think most people did. As of even just a few days ago, they're bringing in some major leaguers. Now, you know, to bring in some guys who you know you can count on. That's why the Stella Prince since gets a three year deal. But the other thing on Peterson is okay. Hold on. He's a Dodger. Well, I have always sort of drawn a line. And there's two sides to that line. Obviously over here are giants who went to L. A and over here. On the other side are Dodgers who came to San Francisco And I like the Dodgers comes San Francisco a lot better than the Giants. Go to L. A You know, there's two arrows and I love the one that's pointing north, much more. I mean, there's the oddity of aural Hersh iser at the end of his career, But forget stuff like that. I'm talking like mid career moves. You know, Same thing with Rome. Oh, and Brian Wilson going down south, but What our guys were in the meat of their career. The Brett Butler thing was painful. But if you're coming this direction And you hit 1 90 last year. And you come here to 80 for the Giants. Like that'll make Dodger fans mad. And I am all about that. I am here for that. Great hot stove tonight. Thanks So much for being with us. That was absolutely great. Mark Wheeler show can be our candy RFM San Francisco these sports leader before we do choose your fated eight. We can get to the breaking news, which is that the Houston Texans have found themselves a new head coach, and his name is David Cully. So I paused there so that you could go Who David Collie now, just because we haven't heard of someone doesn't mean it's about higher. I'll say that It also doesn't mean is like, not a good dude. Not a smart dude. Kali. Based on what I'm reading from other I respect. This is a highly respected guy. Ah, good story. Someone who had been coaching in the NFL for years never thought he would get a chance. And now he has that chance. He was most recently the Ravens passing game coordinator Shout out to My guy Walter on the wheels was like well. You know? How could you not hire the Ravens passing game coordinator since they were doing such a good job? Yeah, Well, maybe it was just that the Ravens would like, You know, we don't need a passing game coordinator, you know, because we don't pass. So this guy's available. Anyway, the Texans grab him and everybody's immediate response is obvious. And I don't want to make this. Uh you know an elephant in the room. Don't touch it. Don't say it. It was obvious that this Shawn Watson Like many rightfully so. Wanted the Houston Texans who do not have a great reputation on the social front at the ownership level. He wanted them to add a minimum. Give the day in court. You diverse candidates. He wanted Eric, the enemy he wanted, Robert Sala. Those guys did not even get interviews. Now it came down to David Collie and Leslie Frazier. Leslie Frazier. Um Would represent more diversity than David Cully. Let's just put it that way. I don't want to paint with a broad brush. I don't know who David Cully is. But there is a lot of speculation out there that this higher Is not. What does Sean was looking for? I've been saying for weeks to Shawn's getting traded. So many laughed at me. Even those Who work near the Houston Texans. And we still don't know definitively that he's going to go. But It pretty much feels that way, doesn't it, doesn't it? I mean the enemy's still coaching. They didn't wait to give him an interview. Who knows if he would have even taken it anyway. It's not that great of a job. They had to go find somebody that was like I never thought I was going to be a head coach. And he's a 65 year old white guy. Just telling you just telling you Is that going to keep the Shawn Watson with the Texans? I highly highly doubt it. So with that breaking news Weave that into all of the other quarterback conversations were having and allow that to take us right up to choose your favorite eight where our options tonight were interesting. Stafford Brady Diet Atmospheric River or dubs starting five This was a runaway vote 55.2% of the vote. The winner is Uh huh. And you wonder, how are you? Making you Some other guy.

And you know, we just could only talked all the way we know it. But man, Alex would sounds like far Hunt's kind of guy. It sounds like those two guys air They're gonna talk metrics all day and hey, if he gets him, you know, get some outs and winds. So be it so Well, that's the deal, and it'll be really fun to see him pitch as a giant. Now the other one is the big news Skyping. That's the pack. He seems like the past few months. Every time we talk to you and Mike, we're talking about a legend passing It's so many, And here we go with Don Sutton Hoo. You know, wasn't even that old I believe seven. Was it 75? I believe he passed away. That's far too young and I got to think we have a great listener. John Platz, you know, does Stanford radio and he does all the research says you faced him once Chi p Had he had that He had bad in 82. You pinch hit for rich Galen faced him. Do you remember that actually. I don't and I had to look this morning. Uh, to see if I had faces because I don't. I don't remember. And I don't think I walked you. Did you do what? You grind it out of walk so well done. I don't remember it, though. But you know what he was with. He was with the Astros with you. He was He was an astro. Uh, you know, Uh, after the 19. Any season, where he was with the Dodgers food more than 10 years at that point It was Houston Milwaukee. Oakland. The Angels in the end after the Dodgers, But the thing that amazing was Out of all the years that he pitched. 20 or 21 of those years to pitch over 200 innings. One of those years that he didn't was the strike you needing one, so he even he would have pitched. Literally 200 innings every year, and he never This is a big word capitalized. Never was injured about that. Yeah, that's awesome. I mean, it's that age old argument about you know why? Why don't they let these pictures today do that? I don't know. You know, they have their answers. They have their reasons. They have their binders. And then here's Don Sutton standing over here. Yeah, well, I think a fix some of that. Is it certain through? 97 9800 miles an hour like a lot of guys do now he would not have lasted 10 years. That's the problem of throwing hard eventually, unless you Nolan Ryan eventually it's gonna happen. It's just gonna happen. So the fact that I mean you look at some of these does Like Negro and sudden, and they didn't throw hard. They're through hard enough. The wind, and they just knew how to pitch and we're responsible. Hmm. We're just looking at What we call the freaks of nature. No, with guys blows so hard, so, John, but it can't be a freaking ancient abacus. Every open has six guys that throw over $97 an hour. But trouble does is every broken is gonna have one of two guys that are gonna go down. You're absolutely right. Great. Great points. It is. It is the velocity. Is it too hard to hit now is hitting too hard now is that No. You know what does it take it? No Cheating. Heart knows he's the guy that's got the 97. 98 Mile an hour fastball. Desmond. He's also got the 91 night. I change Is that when it leaves us here You're thinking it comes. You know, I'm gonna be all with And it doesn't It does. It disappears. It's you know, you're left handed hitter. It's a change of blown away and you inevitably end up swinging at it. Because in your problems you got to catch up to 97. But now you gotta slow things down. He hit 91. It's not the fastball that that does have trouble with. It's if you got other secondary pitches that you can pitch off the fastball. Might says it all the tone. The visitors not impressed with 97 or maybe 89 hour fastballs. They're not Uh uh. What? We are impressed with the other stuff that the guy get Scott to go along with it. It's bonkers, and I had read, you know, we asked this to Mike yesterday. About Theo Epstein joining the major League Baseball front office and just on paper. It sounds good to me. I think Theo's a smart guy, and he made those quotes about. We need to make baseball more action packed it entertaining, and he was basically saying the three true outcomes strike out walking home or is not The best brand of baseball for the fan. Did you take note of him going into the office? And, you know, we even talked about him as a possible commissioner? You know, um Did you have any thoughts on that? Knowledge, you know, it's like you feel good position to use his knowledge. Try to get those faults. Act a little bit of what he gave away. And, uh and, you know, maybe that's the bunt. Maybe it's to steal. Uh, you know things like that that we also in love with Uh, you know, The wood Brett Butler used to do once again distracted Bun is way on for hit. I'm trying to think of anybody that tried to bunt for it to the Giants. I think, your friend she tried it once or twice. You don't get it to mess with the shift, but that's about it. And in Dubai When we go nto the ballpark really do bond is usually one of the guys they understand that will come out early, and that's why little do that fun. What you know for us, It's like, Look at that. It's awesome. So maybe that's what Epstein thinking a little bit of that. That kind of game and you know, not have That picture. In the biggest game of the year. Get taken out in whatever gene was here..

"Time of year where that is mainly caused. What we're talking about is you know the snow? The frost. We get calls every year of people that condoms are emails. People ask us why their driveways are moving. Why their driveways moving up. They now have a Toast over when they walk our their driveway out of the garage onto the driveway and historically happens especially to the sides of the house. And don't get any sun is that Frost build so much underneath the concrete, your concrete gonna do one of two things. It's going to left or is going to live to crack. And hopefully it's not tight in your truck, and I've never been fans of pinning concrete into concrete. For that reason it cracks. But once I lived a lot of times it goes back down. Not into the same place, right? Yeah. Yeah. And you don't want to lifting and you don't want it thinking, you know, it's a crazy thing. You know that we see that we just got an email from somebody who's Concrete block basement wall is moving in. Yep, because that Frost. Yeah. You know, this is the time of year that stuff's going to start happening. So you want to be aware of it? You want to stay on top of it. Be aware of it. And you, have you Did you call it? Brett Butler for me? One concrete, leveling and breath. Been doing this for so many years. He's the one we would turn to when it comes to these kind of issues exactly. And talk in a few segments we mentioned earlier about what kind of home improvement would you want to do that? You wouldn't want anyone to know about it? Well, the answer is a vault room or a safe Roma. Um, but we talked to Our late good friend, David Kaplow that said that when he builds houses, he would put one in 25% of the new homes he built. He would put a safe room or evolved in that room. You and I start to see that house Maybe 10 12 years ago in upper end homes that they were getting some kind of a safe room, some kind of a vault room. And was that on the cusp of a movie that came out Twister, I believe was, Was it or wasn't one world family was trapped in their home by terrorists? What was that Jodie Foster. Panic room. They call them here. Just panic room. Yes, yes, and you can retrofit. You can put these into existing homes and other things you can do. To help give you some safety, especially in today's day and age. People want safety. It's all about safety. Absolutely. So we'll be talking about that little while But in the meantime, we want to take your calls. 888654 guys equals 8886544897. The phone lines are open. You know, the whole safe room. Think it is interesting there a lot of considerations to discuss when you start to get into that you and I had a friend out in Nebraska years ago. That was doing tornado shelters. Yes, And I always harken back to the Wizard of Oz. You know the old fruit cellar where people? You know when I go out there and give a tornado was coming, and they climbed down into the old root cellar, But this guy was doing them concrete vaults. Yes, Yes, yeah. And doing a great job apparently had more work than he could sustain. You know, with this cruise, and do you think that you're going to see where people are integrating these inside their home or outside the home or inside to the home and extending out from the basement there? Really, I say the word easy a lot. Also, they're really easy to put in. And when I see that about something like this.

"It's appropriate to have Scott on right now, right after New Year's. Now that About 99% of the people on the planet Iran Diet. So let's see what he has in store for us. Good morning. Good morning. You know, I usually start out with a new year's something with black eyed peas or diet or whatever, but this time I went. I went duck hunting with Jake. We want with our friend Brett Butler of the district. 10 did really Well, Jake heads back up PICO and says, Dad, What am I gonna do with all these ducks and geese? So in spite of the fact that my son Jake, who's 23 now, and we announced his birth on the show 20 years ago. Accused your name naming him after a young turkey. Remember after a young turkey, right? So I sent him up Chico and talking through how to make a giant batch of Duck and goose stew. So I've got a spicy goose stew recipe that's on the sporting Chef website. But thing is here's There is one of the problems that he ran into. He brined it. And you and I have talked about Brian's forever. Never never You know the basic Brian a gallon of water cup each of kosher salt or any kind, of course salt and brown sugar. And so even though I told him make sure it's coarse salt, not table grind, Fine. Grind salt. What did he do? He used the fine grained salt. And so he said, Dad. My stew was really spice or was really salty, which help venture there's some people that have listened to the show that have had the same results because when you when you use a coarse salt right there bigger grain, so there's more air space in between the salt, so you're not getting as much salt in a cup. As opposed to the concentrated fine grind table salt, right, huh? I got you. So So when you do, bro, and you want to make sure that you cut back on the salt that you season it with, if you do happen to use Table salt by mistake. You've been still soak it in cold water and get some enough salt out. But anyway One of the great ways to use up a whole bunch of ducks and geese. If you're lucky enough to shoot him is to make a big pot of stew and you can freeze it and patches on what I do is I put it into a Ziploc bag. Freeze it and then vacuum seal it after it's been frozen. In that way, you don't worry about the juice coming out anyway. Back to this crew. So brown, Absolutely Brandon Upson, Dice bacon. You said bacon grease sooner have done the same thing with twinkly star. You want to get the grease in there? Takes and chunks of ducks, geese. Mixed bag doesn't matter Brown it really good throw in some chopped onion, celery, carrots. If you want it spicy. Put it a little jalapeno and some garlic and just get it until those onions are translucent. There was some beef broth or better yet, if you made some broth out of some duck and goose bodies a little worse, just served rosemary and a can of diced tomatoes or if you want it more tomato, two cans of right of diced tomatoes. Bring it to a boil. Put a lid on it and then lower the heat and just let it simmer because you got to go low and slow because we don't want medium rare in these things. We want him to be more tender follow for a lot of people like so it's gonna take a couple of hours and once it starts to get tender, I throw in some diced potatoes. Check for seasoning with salt and pepper. If you wanted, Ted, you want to pick it up. You could put a little tomato paste in there, but It's that simple. And for those people like I said they were fortunate enough to shoot a lot of Ducks and geese this year. It's a great way to use it up. Yeah, that's great. I love stew. And you know, just like chili, you know, you make venison RL chili, Uh and you freeze it and in the winner, that's the time. It's an easy meal anytime. You can take it up to your duck club. You can do whatever you want with it, but That's a great winner Recipe. I love it. It's good. I mean, this is this is too season. I don't usually have a big pot of stew in the middle of the summer. But right now good and by the way, sporting Chef is back on Sportsman Channel for a new season and dead meat is now on outdoor channel five times a week. So for people that haven't got that didn't get sportsman Channel that have outdoor They've got several seasons of dead meat up ahead for the high death. Sports Most general Oh, yeah, that's very all right. Does sports the gentle Thanks for reminding me what you watched on Comcast? It should automatically switch switch you over, so I don't look nearly as bad as I already am. Yeah. Thank you, Scott. Dr. Next week, Bye Bye. Scott Left of the website sporting chef dot com. Okay. Switching gears. Steelhead, The Trinity River Low Clear bunch of fish. Come in, You can pound on him. Then they get tough. We need rain. Guide to spend waiting for it is Matt Mitchell and I talked to Matt last night. Matt, you're kind of in Between times. It's the kind time a year where you need whether to get the fish moving, and especially to get new fish coming in. Tell me what's going on in Trinity right now. Well, there's a pretty decent little slug of Fish and hit the Junction City area. Really last week, um, did pretty well for a few days there. We need some more water. Torto bring some or in and the clam it and they'll shoot up and come into the Trinity. This Willow Creek last week and we hooked a couple adults and had a ton of half pounders. But we definitely need some rain to bring some fresh fish. So what happens to the slug of fish that moved into the Junction City? Do they just get beat on and kind of hunkered down or do they move up? Do you think I think some of them hunker down because they're waiting for Canyon Creek to get enough water to go up and the North Fork to get enough water to go up and Browns Creek and all these different feeder streams. But ah lot of them shoot up towards the hatchery because they're you know, just depends on what What creek they're going up to spawn this time, years, Mostly wild fish coming in sure. That's good news. That's good news. So the not know when you were catching him at Junction City. What technique where you're using. Limps under an indicator actually, eight patterns mostly Okay, so the egg patterns were still working out fishing the rubber legs. Well, we got a few on rubber legs but down there they especially the South Forks, bringing in some color right now, so They speak color the et eggs when there's color in the water, and then those fresher fish. They slash out of the those eggs, too. They they're programmed to eat a steelhead are until they get beat up on by him for a little while. They still eat him. Well, you you covered because you were done by Willow Creek, which is course below the south right below the Southwark. Then you were a dull oma and then a junction City. Did you catch fish? All three places. Did? Yes, sir. Yes, sir. At some pretty decent days. I mean, we had to really work for those those adults, but They were there, and we did get a few every day. So OK s O. So what we're reading. You're supposed to be a real good storm move in Monday. I know it's supposed to blow out the smith the eel on the coast and that should be just what the doctor ordered in land, Haman. Yeah, I was over on the Smith River. Ah, for 45. Days ago, I took my wife and kids for a float over there just to go Show it to my wife. She never been on it and it was low and clear. It could definitely Blowout. Bring some fishing and I think this is gonna be the real start of steelhead season on the coast. For sure this storm is gonna bring them all in That's that's mad Mitchell, Matt Mitchell's guys..
