"Pro baseball well. I think it was pros and cons on. It wasn't until. I actually my my second year in professional ball in the minor leagues Murph who was my manager in jacksonville florida and the double eight league in actually the same guy signed no one line. There's there's night and day right there. But he's the first guy. I really told me that he said nikola. If you get the ball over the plate and he says you can pitch in the big leagues. I'm never heard that before in. That was my big motivation. So from there on it was just twenty four hours a day each sleep and drink with the knuckle bone. See if i get this thing over the plate. More times than i can throw balls. And if i could do that compared to the big leagues and after a few years i was able to do that and got there and got up and down up and down and finding in nineteen sixty six i think i i got there and stay there for good. What are the challenges in the secret to controlling the knuckleball. All this mental. When i say that. I'm i'm saying that here's a guy out there in I'm telling nocco balls. The batter knows. I'm throwing couples. Know he's toying knuckleball. He knows i know he knows he's throwing knuckleball in. Just have enough confidence in yourself knowing that if you can't get the ball over the plate You get a good chance to get him out because there are too. Many barriers are like to face knuckleball pitchers 'cause they don't see him every day and they're just they're maybe afraid to get a little foolish strike more balls in the air strikes and they they they'd rather have somebody just come right out and you give me your best stuff and i'll give you my best swing timid not too many guys like to grow up to the plate in. Think about what to do with the volunteers. Ball's coming in of course in in my position would have to do. I get them start thinking before they get into the ballot box and then think about what they're going to do with the ball when it's on us waco this moving so much pretty good chance of getting them out more than they get then they get to and generally speaking felon correct me if i'm wrong about this but aren't major league hitters zone hitters. They they'll swing at something that's in a particular area and one of the advantages of knuckleball is. It's never in the same area twice exactly. It never does the same thing twice. America how you throw the grip. It just doesn't do it for what reason i don't know. But yeah have we have have weak weak zones and someone like inside part of the plates some like the outside of the part played. So you know they'll give you one half the plate and they'll take together if you throw it then they're going to get if you throw it in where they don't like it they're gonna not did go with or maybe take it but all of a sudden here comes from knuckleball and stint feet in front of the plate and they don't know which way it's going to go you know. I got a little advantage there. Let's talk a little bit about your battery mates because that is almost as important as you out there on the mound not everybody likes to catch the knuckleball and we always have seen those big loves that. The catchers have talked to me about some of the catcher's that you work with over the years returned my around Who's in paul. Richards came from baltimore. Orioles general manager of the braves and We had no one that gets bombing. Tori was there. Was there a few guys. But they were kind of free to call it thing and situation late innings as get taken out of lock because you guys were afraid of college. So paul riches came over and traded gene oliver from the The atlanta braves to philadelphia phillies for bob euchre as a catcher. He was a good defensive catcher. Not much of batting average but he knew then he came over and he told me so. They don't care if i hit two hundred. I'm here to catch knuckleball. I'm gonna call it no matter what the situation is in you. We're gonna lose some. You're gonna throw out pitches. And i'm going to have passed balls will lose some but The win the big leagues. You have to throw that ball in situations where other catches won't call for it. I'm going to call for. He did that I led the league in earned-run average that year and he led the league in passed balls. And same the same your then then after that it was just you know I remember by. Bob video Got to the big lakes. 'cause spring training he could catch a knuckleball bruce benedict my great catcher for many years on. They'd made the big club at spring train. Because he took the bull by the horn on the catching knuckleball and he caught it and i was very successfully. I'm gonna assume that for a catcher to be successful in catching the knuckleball. He had to be not afraid of it. First and foremost well to me guys. Try to cherry pick just like for just pick it. You know clean and it's very hard to do. Paul richest brought the gray. Big oversized knuckleball mitt over from baltimore with him. And when you get something like that two or three times the size of normal catcher's mitt you get a little better chance to catch it and the guys who really call it well. It was the guys that really didn't try and pick a clean but just realized that Keep the ball in front of me knocking down. Move with the ball and don't don't stab that let the ball comes to you and you can catch a little bit better over twenty three years. Was there anybody who particularly hit you. Well throwing the knuckleball. Why i don't know his average but billy buckner i i had. I had problems with him. 'cause i knew when he got to the home plate. His objective was to get the first base knee reading cure. How he done in that was always the toughest guys the littler guys. The guys that weren't trying to hit home runs or triples and rb is this guy. Get the first base you know. They were the toughest for me. I i rather face really. You're amazed and bill buckner base. I could strike those guys out. You know here and here and now and then of course when he hit they hit it out. But i just didn't have a pissing. Bill buckner yeah somebody like a bill buckner as a contact hitter those people there they just put the bat on the ball wherever the hell the ball is right. They try to put the ball between two white lines for the between two white lines on a lot of things can happen in. I think you have more. Batters went up to the plate with that objective. How am i gonna get the first base. The next guy comes up and figures. How am i going to get the first base. I think you'd have. You'd have much more on base percentage hitters you you just fine better ballplayers for me that category then guys kidding. Twenty twenty five home runs a your rod. Cara once said to me fill he said What most batters don't do is they. Don't go with what the pitch is words. It's on the outside of the plate. You don't try to pull it. You go the other way with the ball. He was willing to best. You'll tony gwynn was another guy. Wade boggs i mean. We're you didn't have heavy. Bats use light bats and they had such great control. That bat ball is outside. They go luffield down the middle of the mill inside the ball. And and you know they didn't give you half in. They took the other half. You know they cover the whole plate in those are always the tough guys when you know you got a guy. He's he can hit the ball no matter where the ball's gonna break on. We're talking a little baseball with phil niekro of a hall of fame pitcher knuckle baller and we'll continue with that. But let me. Just share a comment from bobby mercer about phillies.

"I mean, you look back. He took that He took the two years they beat the Phillies in the playoffs. They went to the World Series lost to the Yankees, but came back and beat the Yankees and 81 of big upset. And in the year that they beat the Oakland A's was an enormous upset. I mean, nobody thought they could win a minute. Oakland A's demand 104 games that Yeah, eh, So he was. I mean, he was a great and you You said it. You said it very well. He was a great ambassador for baseball. And I know one of the great thrills of his life was he managed the U. S Olympic team. The gold medal in the 2000 Games in Sydney and a gold medal game against Cuba that nobody thought they could win on. They want it and I remember seeing Tommy years after that, and he said You know what I want? I loved one in the World Series. I love being a Dodger. But the biggest thrill of my career was winning the gold medal for United States, and he really meant it. Yeah, because he said, you know if I win for the Dodgers, people in San Francisco don't like me. People in Philadelphia don't like me. But if I win For the United States. People all over the country get to share that. And I get that. Yep. What I remember was the feuds he used to have with the fanatic He hated hated. He hated mascots. And when we had the fanatics, best friend on a couple weeks ago, we talked about this. Tommy did not like mascots That was not part of the game is he saw it and the fanatic used to like haul out a dummy of the Dodgers and beat up the dummy and Tommy, That was an abomination of the game. And I think we all remember the time itwas forget. What year it was is in the eighties, I think when Tommy came out of the dugout stormed out, stole the mass got away from the fanatic. Hold it back and ended of winging a ball at the fanatic is the fanatic was driving away in a scooter. Yeah, He didn't have much of a sense of humor about that. But he had a good sense of humor, and he was very clever. Uhm, like Yogi Berra there a lot of lines attributed to him, some of which he may have said some what she may not have My favorite one that I heard Woz. There was a catcher Bruce Benedict, who was really slow. I don't know if you remember Bruce Benedict. I do. Okay, not, you know, not not a big time player, but he was. He was slow and Tommy's line was He could have a race with a pregnant woman and end up finishing third. That was a great line. Yes, it was anyway. R I P to him and his family. I know there's a lot of people in town who were either related or or friends of Tommy's and Our condolences to everybody. All right, one other thing. I want to get in here before the top of the hour. Ray big trade in baseball. This week's but it's been a very quiet offseason for baseball, because I think teams don't really know where the economics of the game is headed. But the Mets, who have a new owner, Steve Cohn, who has the advantage of not having lost 100 Million plus last year, right? They're making moves and they add Francisco indoor. The great shortstop from Cleveland, Um and core ask Oh, by the way, the pitcher former Phillies prospect correct, But Lindores is the key. And, um I think it makes the Mets of prohibitive favorite in this division. They're already added James McCann, the catcher. He's good, not great. It looks like they still are going to make moves. They may had Springer, who's Who's the number one free agent? But just in terms of Lin door I think he is a star player who is going to fit the biggest market. You know, in Cleveland. People don't see him as much. He's a switch hitter. He's got power. He's AH, high end defensive player. He's got personality. His nickname is Mr Smile. I think he gives the meta of face. And I think it's a It's a great signing for them. And I mean the Braves added Charlie Morton. The nationals went out, stole Josh Bell from the Pirates and The Phillies traded for Jose Alvarado, who pitched well three years ago has had injuries ever since. Correct My feeling that good about? No, No, you wouldn't. The Linda or thing had been speculated a little bit. But I think the announcement that the deal actually had come down, took everybody by surprise. On ditz. Yeah. I mean, it's a real game changer. I mean, he is that he is that good. I mean, he's 27 years old. He's right in his prime had an 8 33 0 P s last year. Um, he's a two time Gold glove guy gives you a lot of offense. On seems to have the kind of personality that can survive in New York, and maybe even actually thrive. I think he's gonna be great for them. Yeah, and Carrasco is more than just to throw in. I mean, he's Oh, yeah. I mean, it was one time that I mean, he was sort of considered. The rising ace in the Philly system, and they had to trade him away to get Cliff Lee, But he's had a good career and you know right now, Yeah. Yeah. If you ask me right now, who's probably because you figure they also picked up Trevor may and have also signed Marcus Stroman. So the Mets have been doing some things. And if you ask me right now, who's the best team in the division? Sure wouldn't say the Phillies. I would probably say the Mets think the Phillies their fourth or fifth Phillies, maybe last. You know, I don't wanna I don't push the panic button, but nothing is looking good for them..

"Like no good maybe to maybe had to take into account position was good as a catcher but he was five. He didn't use batting gloves though. That makes you a professional hitter. It how positive. That's for sure. I would sir banning gloves i. That's an interesting one does put it on the poll guillermo show and ordered to be professional hitter. Do you have to not wear batting gloves. I made two eighty eight career average playing that position. That's a professional hitter man and if you do know batting gloves plus pine tar than you're batting average can be ten points lower and it still evens out more or less professional hitters. I feel like the dirty helmet is a scrappy hitter. we're not talking about a scrappy hit. We're talking about a pro's pro hitter like just like he can't have a craig bijou and being this conversation. I got a scratchy hitter for you. Mark loretta about that snow. Terrible just terrible terrible nominee by you abby. I want to change parameters here. Because the power thing i feel. It is a little bit overblown. I think of. Jacques peterson as a professional hitter. Even though he's got some pop in the bat professional hit conduct. Peterson drinks out too much. I think i have to take back. What i said about jason kendall because he made a couple of all star games even though i'm thinking of like a couple of seasons that he had where he was in in the low two hundred two hundred and when i think of professional hitters with the pittsburgh pirates i go with the combination of catcher of don slot and mike lavalle earlier Both of slots power volume of lear. I don't even remember. I've always wondered that. I'm not ready to move away from the jocks job. Jones might have been a good professional hitter. I liked that shannon stewart as well. I like what you're doing. I've found the inspiration for dadi in a league of their own now. she had. Her name was bonnie baker. So you can see. She hit two eighty six lifetime and a tremendous fielder. As well commanded the catcher's position think bonnie baker is the new queen of the mountain Roy is chili davis. I don't know why i'm asking. You have a great name. I'm so glad. Yeah us with a smile on my good chili davis. Good elliott twenty-five thirty homer years. I think roy. I was god's and apology by the way i thought who was it that you mentioned that i yelled at you about that. I didn't realize you were doing scrappy. Professional public apology to be scrappy. You need to have multiple fantasy eligibility positions right. You need to have at least five. Need to be locked in that you till spotlight brian. Friel our figgins. So let's think about this for a second Bill you hate the braves on the braves. Because i want. I want to narrow this down a little bit and it might take us the whole week to do it and I think it's the most important story that can be tackled by any media outlet This week So on the atlanta braves. Because i need to know who this looks like more because it doesn't seem like we have consensus on. Yes batting gloves. No batting gloves. Dirty helmet stance. It's appeals like stance we agree on. You can't have a weird stance you gotta have like a normal professional hitter traditional stance but who on the braves. None of their first three headers can be professional hitters. They're all too good How about i do think when you look at martine from the brain to the marlins that's rate that's a break on one hand that checks off like multiple fantasy positions excellent who on the braves. Now though would be someone that you look at and say and they might not have a candidate. I don't know i have a scrappy hitter from the braves glenn hubbard. Why are you doing scrapping. You can do that for big sui scrappy hitters. We can do in another time another day. It's too important. Time on the ball. Because i i am a chris through there. It's a great little tommy her. Sorry no tommy. Her was too good. Got a lot of the helmet. Her had one hundred. Can you have one hundred. Rbi one hundred rbi one-season. Can you have one hundred. Rbi and be a professional hitter with eight homers. Though i mean. I know but i don't think you could be a professional hitter with one hundred runs knocked in. Can you look. We started with west. Helms and rusk glow paula. Neil too good. Whoa whoa paulo neil. Too good and how. He kendricks not to hold on to eighty. No but my the reason that one doesn't work because paul o'neil is one of the few athletes pre steroids. Whoever got better after the age of thirty so he became good and it changed his ag. You're right five all star appearances my bad. I'm torn here sean casey. I don't know what i'm doing here but like growing up. I don't know if this anyone else felt this way. But i felt like the braves led the league in players who own tractors right but now it seems like they couldn't further from that. Am i the only one that felt that growing up. It was brian mccann. Are you talking about well. That was before that you're talking about chipper jones. Our era that okay professional hitter position and he was professional for the position. All right so what was that team. That had tractors what we're who are the players you're thinking of there was the was. The catcher bruce benedict was the catcher. Who who is the probably be lopez was on the ryan klesko klesko. Yep yeah what. Why get frank gore. Wasn't that the the double play combinator. Weysan limpkey a no was limpkey and blauser early nineties. No-win ninety play tractor. No recollection of terry pendleton right. Yeah you want an mvp for the braves. Nineteen ninety. Three's the height of jeff blauser. So i'm going to go to the nineteen ninety-three braves roster. Let's figure out who owns a tractor. You guys let's do that. We will do that. you You guys said that. Chris and stu gods you guys made it. Mvp you guys made saying that time. Wise in all star game as an atlanta brave three magical years in atlanta Steve avery tractor pitcher out of here. I can't even think about pictures right. Now skip the pitchers. Steve avery Who were the closers. But trojan was mark waller hundred whips. He added tractor pain. You was the closer for that team. Wohlers for the ninety three team. It was wallers. They had steve and russian and they can't mercury when america. They went wohlers rocker right. Yes damon berryhill tractor. Sounds like it. I don't even know who you're talking like. You made up a name. Typically for the purposes of writing a tractor. Billy have the roster in front of you of those braves that you associate with tractors. Yeah i'm looking at the nineteen ninety five braves roster right now and let's see how lemke i think maybe had attract blouse or possibly chipper maybe ryan klesko mark david justice. What is that sound dog. He's playing with a gatorade bottle right now and he hasn't been doing that all morning but he felt like. Now's the time to do that. Billy i feel like the infield had tractors the outfield of dion sanders. Otis nixon david justice ron gant anti tarasco did not have see with a tractor. There had to be a schism in that locker room between the field in the outfield. Those were two very different styles. The right fielders married to halle berry this center fielder dion sanders and ron gant. Someone who's never looked better than anyone else in a unified. If you look at iraq get the wrong way. You are in big trouble. I will take you to the woodshed now. It's my best pitch whenever we play these games. But i think it applies here. I'm going back to the well. How morris professional hitter. That's pretty good like the good name that is pretty good. Perfect for professional do flashy comes up three hundred. that's it. i'm how. I don't know what i'd do it how morris. I think it was the first baseball card. I ever remember getting. But he hits all the right notes baby. Well what you do with how morris is want him on your team like i think that's part of besides dan. He's a close to three hundred hitter. You give me nine. how morris's i'm wondering no. You're not putting awfully crowded on the poll at lebatardshow but one of them bitching bridging. And i don't have great deal as what it on. The podium at lebatardshow winning the pennant with nine. How more three. Oh four career average..

In 1984 they signed Francais. His contract gave him 50 cents for every person over a 1,000,000 to 1.6 million. That year. That was year They won the division. Now in 1999. I'm there with my sons. The Giants are there. We get there. We can't get a ticket tickets or $50 in the fourth. Any Barry Bonds wasn't even playing man. 20 years. That's how much a game changer. Yeah, it really has. Hey, I appreciate the stories of hearing Steve. Thank you. Have a good night I covered. Let's see Cubs Cubs giants in the playoffs would have been what, 89? I think it was. I covered that Siri's infact. I did a story on the ball hawkers. Everybody out beyond the left field wall who chased the home run balls, and there were a group of professionals and I mean professionals. They were sent a their lawn chairs. They had their little TVs, the battery operated TVs, a track and where the balls were being hit. They had their fish nets everything, and it would be a mad scramble for home run balls out beyond the left field wall. I did a story. On that group to show the impact of of those super stations on just my memory. As you know, Reds fan my entire life. I can give you the Cubs teams of that time was Jody Davis Catch because I can hear Carrie Harry Carey singing Jody Jody Davis, Best catcher in the National League, Bull, Dermot, First Leon Durham. They had rhino, Ryan Sandberg, its second Sean Dunton, a bazooka short the Penguin rod. Say 1/3 The outfield would've been Sarge. Gary Matthews in left, Bob Turner and center part of the Daily Double with Ryan Sandberg. In What Zonk Keith Moreland in right, probably in those Braves teams. That was Dale Murphy and can't Ah Albert fell and Bruce Benedict or Biff, Polka Robot, Glenn Hubbard and Claudel Washington. Chris Chambliss, Rick Mailer, Guys like that Phil Niekro. Oh, in Ireland. I know that because the power of the super stations at that time I had one more story them back to the phones. I had opportunities around our Christmas specials. What? I was in Chicago at the seal TV. I interviewed Harry met Harriet A. Try to remember what the name of the hotel was downtown or it may have been in the building he lived in, but we met in the lobby. And I did an hour long interview with Harry. Just me and Harry sitting big chairs, and it was an hour long It was going to run Christmas Eve, and I'll never forget the end of the interview. Harry looks at me and he picked he had a beer is Bud and he looked at me and he picked up the barony. Gleaned it towards the camera, he said. And this buds for you just classic Harry Carey and the following year for a Christmas special. I had a chance. He was no longer doing games, but I had chance to go up to Ah, Jack Brick houses condo. And in his living room record, an hour long special with Jack Brickhouse on memories of life and Times and cubs, baseball.

It's ten thirty in the morning the very moment I hang this up. I'm getting an ice cold. Budweiser I just figured. Last thing in the world I need is an email from NPR relic. All right. Now let me dive into this. Came up with this article on Michael Jordan. The history of flight. The timing of this is based off the last dance. The documentary was this planned all along or just coincidental. I I mean it started. My editor is got him. Eric Neil and he and were watching the dock and sort of like well. They're relentlessly beating this drum about how he is you know to the point became a maim like God somebody tell Michael. Jordan Corona virus was talking smack about and we were like. What is it that we're watching? Exactly where does it come from? And what does it mean and so the story really flowed out of those questions and you know trying to understand the cultural moment that we were all living it and the further and further. I went back into history. The more the dot started connecting for me. And it's weird. I'm sure you've had these stories In your career but the more learned about his family history just the more I wanted to be a custodian of that story and just try to deliver it honestly and tell people what is routes were light and I felt I felt a great responsibility to get that right. But what was it that you on earth you that was one of those epiphanies that said. Oh that explains this well then for for five or six. If you count my goal generations they have lived in a pretty narrow wedge of North Carolina. He's often people say he's from Wilmington and that's true but not really I mean his family is from the country outside of Wilmington. And when you see Michael Jordan as country and when you see Michael Jordan having these long rural routes and one tight area of land you start to realize one the things that influenced him and shaped him to be the person that we know and also all of the souls. He stepped on the court in really refrained him in a way that I'd never thought about before and it was as simple as may going and finding his ancestors and seeing where his dad grew up and lived in the cemetery at the Country Church where his dad's buried and literally. Just put those little stars on Google maps and looking at me like this is all in the same place. I mean it was no more complicated than that it i. Why did Jordan do this documentary? That's a really good question. I've thought about that endlessly now. I'd never asked him because I hadn't talked to him. Since it came out like I feel like you know. The producer came to pitch him on the morning of one all Lebron's championship. Yeah like I might have been born at night but it was the last.

I've never thought about before and if it was a simple as going and finding his ancestors and saying where is dad grew up and lived in the cemetery at the country church where stats buried it literally just put those little stars on Google maps and look at me like this is all in the same place I mean it was no more complicated than that its parts why did Jordan do this documentary that's a really good question I have thought about that it looks sleek now I never asked him up because I hadn't talked to sit the game out but like I feel like you know the person came to catch him on the morning of one of Ron's championship yeah at you know like I'm I've been born at night but it was okay I feel like one of the most interesting things about it it to me is that it exists and that you know it's important to Michael that after you know you saw was at the end of episode seven when he started crying thank you how he treated people and all this cost I mean I felt like it's important that people remember because he sacrificed a lot for it and it felt to me that it was you know what it's up to remind people Hey this is what it was like this is who I was you know we are in your Tiger Woods talk about I was get thought he was a YouTube offer not Michael Jordan has six year old twins which market I mean I have I have a two year old toddler and I'm I'm just getting crushed I don't know I was I bet I bet he's got more staff but I'm I'm I'm going to get a better deal right there was part of me that felt sorry for George in the documentary because this heat we can look at him and say this made him great I don't think you can turn that off I I just I don't know it was a weird feeling I had and you spent time winning that does that make any sense to you I have long felt like Michael Jordan is actively engaged in what to do with all what to do with all of the traits that he so carefully nurtured in themselves and I think that he has thought about that since he retired and I mean I think that's what the wizards was I think that's what the hall of fame speech was I think he is actively engaged in dealing with the idea of the cost of having been Michael Jordan I also we're talking the right times in ESPN senior writer he's got a book out on Bourbon well it's not just about Bourbon it's about family it's about Bourbon Pappy van Winkle and the inheritance that matters the most so what he also has his most recent story the history of flight tracing Michael Jordan's family relationship in rural North Carolina you hung out with Tiger Woods like the similarities between tiger and Michael what what is the common thread well I mean what companies want to be not written about tiger out you know I I haven't spent a lot of time around tiger but the thing that's interesting to me is that you know they were both tiger tiger was patterned after Michael like his public twice and I think the thing that's so interesting that we forget is these aren't widgets just to be replaced you know like Michael Jordan is an extreme extrovert and Tiger Woods is an extreme introvert and so there was a little bit of sort of lack of understanding of the person they were dealing with when they constructed his public persona and so I mean I think the way that you know Jordan handled is better than tiger and it is because it was it in a way that being a public didn't step tiger I mean Jordan is the alpha in the room you know and and it so air Jordan isn't that just from him but I feel like the public version of tiger is very different than I also wondered about this with Jordan's let's say Jordan went for into an NBA finals we would be critiquing him by saying you know what if he spent more time dedicated and didn't go out to go gambling and then smoking cigars and playing golf the fact that he won six in a row eight you know that just adds to the mythology of Michael Jordan what it's like what Abraham Lincoln said about general grant when somebody was saying like you know he he's drinking too much and like it was like I want to spend all my generals eight okay maybe that you know maybe towards the right idea speaking of drinking can you talk about this book that you've written on a Pappy van Winkle I mean if we're still finishing it so not a lot except that it is you know it's a story about the history of Pappy what van Winkle Bourbon wrapped in with I guess my own story it's a story about a man who makes whiskey on about a man who drinks it and you know I had all these grand literary ambitions because it sort of gets really John repenting and and I'm really proud of that part of it and then somebody read it was like god's great love for met what well yeah I guess it's that too I did want to let but you're you know there's some cool for your huge and sprawling audience of listeners so it's it's available for pre sale now it's called fly and anybody that goes out and you can tweet out a but the screen shot says you bought it if you pre ordered it and hashtagging Pappy glance what bind it and then write a sentence or two about who you want to drink a bottle of this with and why because ultimately what the book is about is the community of carbon and this thing comes out November tenth and so just keep these things come in and I'm gonna look at all of them whichever one movie to be the most personally I will send somebody a free bottle of so like you know pre order the book right about who you want to share a bottle with and why tweet it has struck Pappy land and I'm gonna send somebody a bottle because that's what this stuff is really about it's not about porting it's about sharing and it's about sharing it with someone who matters a lot to you and the rarity in the price tag on the Bourbon is a way in which you tell that person you're trekking west that you care about them and you love the and to me that's what it's really about in this audience responded the last book you had out when you came into the studio right I walked in there like thirty seven thousand on Amazon and I walked out of there at number eleven yeah right click the link like when Wallace goes to college I'm gonna be like yeah thank okay I told people if you want the perfect gift this is a beautiful gift that you can give to anybody the the stories that you had and I said to you look our audience is going to gobble this up and I think you were like yeah right I've been in this is where I'm going to cosign on this again if you want to get your father or grandfather eight day gifts this Christmas happy land will be that book and it it's it's not about Bourbon but it is it's not about relationships but it is like it's it's one of those where you're reading it and you think you're you're you're talking you're knee deep in Bourbon then next thing you know you're talking about visiting your father's grave site like it's the but it's all intertwined and I I think it'll be beautifully written because it's by you but the audience this November look for Pappy land but order it now and then do the hashtag Pappy land and then let Doug let right see why who you would share that Pappy with and then he's going to pick out one and send somebody a bottle I'm looking at the prices here happy's not expensive right the secondary market on Pappy is really expensive so it is like these are crazy numbers a ten year bottle is fifty one dollars on the secondary market six eighty five here's a a thirteen year rise eighty six dollars it's two grand on the secondary market all but wait there's more the Pappy twenty five year old is thirteen fifty for the bottle it's twenty thousand dollars on the secondary market there.

the phrase one those years they've stump before right he's part of a and they were like entering and who took him who made a may I center field from cancer right who did that Joe told toward the yes Sir couldn't throw the ball to second base everything over his head right against big tournament again a good yeah gold glove winner so we had to play next week on the show because he was hilarious I

it yes good one oz Virgil so anyway it yeah getting back to this whole Astros thing you know discussing I think these guys should been banned and you know there's guys I said earlier there's a few things you don't do and that's just one of them right and again you're it these guys need to go they need to go seriously what about the players there's probably too many of them involved and I think that what you said about Major League Baseball that they want is gone dealt with right out of the picture right it is and the and the players union will make it all and they know that their seven more teams Rahman which I can not you although although the end will be has come out and said that there's not enough evidence to prove that do you have these other teams well the red Sox are finished come on the red Sox all easily right yes and that hasn't been totally released yet no because it is currently being investigated is actually there to see who the managers are going to be yeah I I was a soldier will get picked off now because we probably trying to get well the Mets Baker I so want to will be taken yeah I'm a metal take like the estimate I'm surprised Roha seventy seventy years old I mean you know how many more years ago last time I remember him he's pulling the kid author of out home plate in Chicago yeah well yeah listen the heat they had a great career those to be occur but you know time for right now the question that I that I propose is does Alex Cora get a lifetime ban he might they all need to go he might not they all need to go they cheated John I was tellin gel that this whole otherwise they played baseball they've hit curveballs right yes right John it what what I was telling Jeff earlier was that the punishment by by on on the the odd the commissioner and everyone was just too soft and in my opinion was way too soft on who the Astros well I mean what should he have done no a ban on no year all and what sort of the sickly draft picks to yeah yeah but but with the with the MLB draft it is based on slot value is not based on talent so what would you have done I would talk away the fandom bandit Lou now and hench banned them gone gone gone you realize though that neither one of those guys ever getting a job again anyone I know they well John Jack trust me so second chance country one know why do you know why because in about three to five years why and when when this whole thing is gone and yeah and and it just blows over do they will get a job players with that unique talents their front office can right and they will get a job in the front office in some is in some capacity I will have him too will be a a he will be a third base coach is something I'll get back right exactly all right is you what you got going on tomorrow you know

And when I texted Jennifer and told her that the first thing she said, his Lordy. Trouble in trouble. Yeah. And then she gave warrant a warning to be sure, you know, where that button is. Because you never know what might happen with the two of us here at the same time. Speaking of the two of us, let's bring in a third party here, captain, Omar. Now, we got character out. I'm just telling you, man. All right. Omar what's going on man. Oh, man. I'm out here. Trying to throw pointing sticks. They're sworn in. Okay. You know, we have made progress since the stone age did. Yeah. I know. But I just started with the rifle is like, yeah. Okay. Three hundred yard shot. Eight dead. I'm good. I just aggravated all of my Bohannon listeners. But they know I'm kidding. So. Just like, I just think it's fun. Just to get that close to what are you get a shot or not? I mean you got here at hog twenty yards. Relax, and it's just it's really exhilarating. You know? Yeah. Yeah. Now, are you are you east today or you down by Glen rose up here at appeared expert? Okay. At the we talked about that place. Gentlemen, will let you hunt very reasonable rate. Yeah. Well, he he he had to go back to taking the job. So now, it's it's pretty much least except for a little bit. He likes me, come up and hunt. What he I'm so. Okay. It's going to be a good morning. Yeah. Tell you what you know. I kind of excited 'cause I talked to Daryl, you know. And and it is okay. I still love you Brian. How you know? You're welcome anybody that does this show. All you guys. Welcome to come up here. And sit with me anytime you want to couple times, it's fine. I think for the most part they get scared off by that whole big city. I gotta drive in the traffic. Nope. Now there is that. Well, the only traffic now is last night's traffic. If you know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. Well, so what's going on fishing wise, man? Fisher still been good. I mean, we're something about it's working lake has come down about five feet, but it's still about five feet high. Really again, only about ramp. That's usable for the public is the case what's about ramp. Everybody's trying to get along and get in and get out and enjoy it the water still in the low to mid fifty. And we got this cold front coming through. I mean, if I was if I was fishing today would be today. I would be fish just because of the wind and the conditions are going to be beautiful out there today. Yeah. Decide I want to try and put some venison in the freezer. So how would you what would you do your hitting the lake one of our one of our listeners is is about to dump the boat in the water? What do you need to do? You know, honestly, if you can find birds sitting on the water look under if there's not birds sitting on the end of the war on the water, then look on a long shallow points that drop off and look anywhere from fifteen to thirty five feet. And right now, it's been really strange the uh where we Mark a lot of fish. We hardly catch anything. And when we Mark just a little fish their talent in the bottle. So, you know, I don't understand that makes you scratch your head and go, okay. There's five Jillian Fisher. They're not buying over here. There's fishing. You can't keep them off the hook. I'll I don't know. But yeah, you really want to look for those little lumps of fish on the bottom more than anything because that seems to be the most consistent catching on the white bass right there. But you know, they're small mouth there's large mouth croppies fishermen and doing really good overall Lewisville from what I understand it about twenty eight to thirty two feet of water on top of the brush piles. I've seen some really nice pictures of friends of mine and other friend of mine that creek fishes he's been catching sand bass hybrids entropy up. So I mean, it's a little early, but they're up in there for some reason. How how do you think your day is going to go today out there in the deer would? Well. He's got several coal bucks coming in. And he told me to take they come in. I look at Ford. He's got hogs all over the place up here. So nothing else. I'd probably get a hog pretty bound Eric name. Oh, I didn't tell you that I tell you about the buckeyes on Monday the have been before legal sheet. Do he looked like a Hartford commercial? Ten point. Yeah. And he came right up there. Treeline rock to the right of the Tristan. Yeah. And he walked out, and I poured out some attractive underneath the theater there. And he walked out, and he he came. I swear Brian he was spicy shelter. He was a monster. Oh my gosh. Kidding right to the cedar. And are you feeding on the stuff? I poured out and looking at my watch going three more minutes. At about thirteen weeks ago. Right. Right. Well, occasionally down there, you will see one of those about once he was so big. That's the second year. I've seen last year, and he was in the fog. So I could never get a clear shot at the vinyl since folks there is nothing more important than I know, Darryl agree with me and you'll agree with me. There's nothing more important than an ethical shot. If you see the bottles. You don't have any business pull the trigger. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Don't do that. So how do we reach you to get set up on a trip or get one of those all important gift certificates for Christmas? How do we reach you, sir? They can call me at eight one seven nine three seven eight seven five five on the web at. Luckily, our starting at Facebook, also and on Instagram. Hey, man, I do appreciate it so much please be safe today. Good luck. And give us a shout again next week. I'll tell you. What if I get if I get some this morning? I'll send you fix your brother. I know you make me jealous. That's okay. Oh, man. I saw that beautiful access. Gorgeous deer sausage would be better. Right. Did you hear that? Hey, listen. We appreciate you. You bet. Bye. Bye. Joining us now lake fork Barbara Stevenson comes on with us, and Barbara appreciate you being with us this morning. How're you doing? I'm doing great. Thank you going to have to get you and Mark to come in one day. And and maybe if I don't know if you're in Dallas for some reason, I cannot imagine I guess you guys probably do everything you can to avoid the big city. No, not really we like come into town and go out they sometimes and stuff like that. We'll have to get your sometime when you stay over. We'll have to get you out here and come in studio with us because it's really exciting to be here. Gerald's Daryl's laughing. He knows Brignone headphones. He can't hear nothing. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't have any do we still have those in? What's his name's desk? I'll look at the break. I'll see if I can find you some there so house. We have no headphones for him. So every time you you hit the button. You can't hear anything. So how's how's lake fork doing? Good Lord Clerides. Pre good water. Temperatures did Fisher out trying to get their deep. Of course, y'all on this. Like, it's there's shellfish just bowel year round. It specially if you have some vegetation, and but they're trying to get out there. But if I were going out this morning. I'd start up probably a spare bait or swim by we say show swim bites on the show swim bites with that hooked up. Mark makes of course and oh gosh. It just does a my job and sometimes they'll do bear in. It's got the blade on there. A lot of times. It just does the Nathan aspera bait does. Mhm? So we'll start out with something like that. Or even a a square bell small square Bill. Okay. And then that's that. We're going to the wacky worm especially right now where Cinco type bay is doing really. Well. Now, you mentioned wacky worms. That's one. That's one of darrow's favorites. I he he I I'll never forget one time. I went to fish with him and was fishing the bus bake because hey, that's what I do. And it was perfect. Everything was perfect for it. And after he'd landed about, I don't know fifteen twenty fish, Daryl something like that. Yeah. We won't go to real total. Okay. It was more finally decided that maybe it wasn't the way to go. How do you? And I'm just interested in hearing, you guys tell me how you each do this, and what the differences might be. We're just shoes and. Got to hook has we guard there. It's a counter like circle. That's what it looks like. And I use a little rubber. Drama or whatever you call it to go over the war on the trick think Cinco anything like that. And hooking it the exact way in a little bit of white. I don't always at most. I may use close to a half of one of those wait, right? But most time I don't use near that much. And you never do you ever put a split shot eighteen inches up or anything like that? Or you think that just kills the action? No. It's just something. I just never have done Darryl. How do you when you rig one is that pretty much the same? Are we right there on the same page or you do something a little different probably a hurt her out of out of known, all she said. The hook that she's using. I mean, be honest, I use a gold Aberdeen crop. You hook a lot of times. They're really or the one on something light wire because I'm using using light line. Now, we'll throw it on fifteen seventeen pound -fluorocarbons spring with a bigger hook. But we'll switch it up and go to split shot above. But using a nail in the head is going to be what that's just the way we grew up clues hanger cut him off and good luck. Finding a metal clothes hanger nowadays. Well. And she also said she uses the little rubber in. I don't know what college either Gromit or the little the little collar. If you will that you can slide your hook under do you hook right through the the worm itself or do you use one of the? Yeah. No, I'm too cheap to buy the ranks know, they make an old ring. That's tungsten rubber combination. Don't you get to wait in their plus your place, put the hook? I just too cheap to buy the ranks just stick the hook through warm, usually, it's a finance warmer sometimes. But if it's a Cinco, I may would use that. But I'll Texas rig that Cinco Cinco because. They tear so easily if you don't yes if one fish bait unless it's just a big when they got it in its mouth, and you might get to out. I saw I saw I saw a bag abates one time advertised, and they were talking about how you could catch a hundred fish on a single worm. And I thought well, that's not very smart. Because if you're if you're selling bait, and you got a bag a ten thousand fish for I need to buy another bag, Gary, I'm a motos got it down one fish one worm and you buy some more elastic worms. Those those things are all is that what it was easy man, actually still makes those and you can you can catch a tone of fish on them. But when they're six seven dollars worm. It's like buying heartbeat. So their money. Yeah. Okay. They do last. You put them on an Ned Reagan fishing all day. And unless you just do something crazy you fish at worm catch twenty fish on it before you ever changing. We'll Barbara speaking of I'll tell you a story real quick. Yeah. Back when John tech was going on this one time. He said you tragedies worms. I've just made and everything. It was a worm. It was called the enterprise the color. It was a slow go type bait and we use. Wow, we caught twenty socialness thing. You know? He says, okay, fine. Next time. He brings the some like, what is this a lot soccer Hayes. Yeah. You're catching way to me fish. I often wonder whatever happened to Bruce Benedict. I haven't heard from him in years and years I used to use his whites all the time. Oh, yeah. Had some great bate one more quick question. If if I wanted to could I get my top water bike going as much as I love it. Some days, right, right? Every day type deal, and you have to stay with it to do that. So probably probably more trouble than it's worth probably. But if you've got lots Marquette's a lot more patience with that tonight. He will fish atop if he's getting one by an hour. And I yeah. I'd rather be in plastic or jig catching fish..
"bruce benedict" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Yeah. Rogers record against the spread when he's more than a touchdown favorite at home is pretty spectacular. That's one of those principle plays that you just lock in and taking the fact that it's Brock Osweiler, and you know, the dolphins. Well, Brock Osweiler. If you look at him numerically, and this part is is a bummer the stats when you put them side by side on this year. Don't look a lot different between Brock and Ryan tannehill. Now Ryan tannehill had a couple of bad games after he was injured. I think healthy Ryan tannehill is a good deal better than Brock Osweiler. But the numbers don't show that. Yeah. The injury came again, so Klin and he had that disastrous game against Cincinnati that that patriots game was maybe the were one of the worst quarterback performances. I've seen it off on quarterback too. So that weighted down, but yeah, not not not great that he's essentially Brock. Us wiler. You gotta go I test with those two ten hills better. It's not even close here, though, it it's one of the few instances where the eye test. Well, what us while or does when you're watching breeze, and Rogers, how frustrated are you there that us Waller's overthrowing people doing bad fundamentals off the back foot throwing it using all arm? They have no receivers at two healthy receivers by the end of the game earlier, we were discussing, and I think we all agreed on it that maybe Brock osweiler's too tall for the position. And if he had that surgery where he becomes short of it. He may be more on target to agree with that that men. Herm Edwards has the same exact take. I swear to God. Herm Edwards said look it up in history. Any quarterback told six six never pans out. Does it Mark mcgwire's, brother? Dan, McGwire wasn't. He's six ten. I'm pretty I think I know I believe that Mark mcgwire's brother was a quarterback at where San Diego State, and I believe that he was he was one of the tallest quarterbacks ever if not the tallest quarterback ever. He was six eight. I love the idea of like a sixteen quarterback. Because in my mind, I just saw someone like so tall. Their head is in the clouds. They see outside the stadium and stuff. Joe flacco, Nick foles. He's guys one Super Bowl. How how's six he said taller than six? Six six. Lists Brock Osweiler says, the the cutoff is six six. That's that. I'm harm sat me down and like thirty minutes. Sermon about light out Tallin six six no chance. I think the list is Brock Osweiler in terms of quarterbacks who are taller, and that's again Hermes not lying. I just told you Dan, Maguire's taller. And Furthermore, what kind of Frankenstein was the McGuire father producing Mark Maguire, and well, I guess. Could be the mom to what kind of Frankenstein. Couple was producing these giant McGuire. Wasn't another McGuire. Baseball player. Mark mcgwire. No, another one a third one. Yes. There was a geom- B's. Maybe. Oh, maybe I'm sorry. Why guys? Isn't it? Like, I hit home run. That's what it is. Okay. Do you realize how amazing it is that you're fluent in translating? A means of baseball knowledge that was amazing the way that you just did that on Saturday. We had made in Chris. And I think Billy was was part of this. What we just started naming baseball got guys from the the Braves was gray. I Ryan Klesko I missed out on that. Lavan reminiscent Braves name was on ROY space each just e. The. Walkies grisham. Ron gant. Let's do breath, but grip hold on. Let's do it. Let's do it. Let's do the the lineup. Okay. Let's do who was the catcher Bruce Benedict. Are we going later than AVI? Lopez. Oscar Lopez Charlie O'Brien. Wow. Third baseman who was the third basement on those Braves teams shiver, Terry Pendleton. Versus what happens though, you see? What happens? This is why I wanna play the game who's the shortstop is a blouse or do you have a different home? It's always class. I love that dude. It's your second basement limp gear or guess, Mark. It's limpkey..
