"When you were a kid you gotcha very simply there. We go okay now How did you become a writer. And what your drew you to baseball for. So many of your books man played baseball. They spun t can't The depression he played baseball in the military and then he played baseball and mexican leagues in the late forties early fifties and so it was difficult not to especially when he had posters of joe demise show and later one mickey mantle hanging in the hall and then later they were taken into nine bedroom though it was almost by What what else. Yeah that's that's a great answer tony for sure now. I was thinking when i picked up the book. I'm going to ask tony. Why did you bill morris i ahead of mantle. I didn't know Writers whether it's in hollywood or whether it's books it seems like writers are always the last person on on. The thing is when i first came to los angeles and somebody was telling me this great joke about writers about the dumb blonde. Who fell in love with the writer thinking that would help her career. And that's where and so. I say that as a way of answering your question there which is that. The title of the book was something that The marketing people publishers often have a great influence in handling. And this was one of those cases. Gotcha so he was the one that broke the record you know. You're the one that that he in sixty one he he One and that chariots of fire is at work in baseball. He came out ahead. he did hear exactly right. Tony i get you now now. What the book does folks I learned that a large part of the legend isn't quite accurate. And tony brings out some other points it. it's informative. And and a great read. Dat sorta reshapes some of the preconceived history. We have a few new angles. You bring out for sony. Well i hope i did. I you know some of that is the nearest mental relationship. Which not so much that has been misunderstood. So much as it was mistreated. I think from the way it was written about there in the late fifties early sixties. Not unlike what happened with marissa mantle mantle and demise show in early fifties. Now one of the things that i enjoyed About the book was learning about the old professor himself. Casey stangl who later managed the mets. He wasn't the guy that everybody thinks he was. Was he tony well. He wasn't when he was a genius. His own right He had been a Players you know. His pedigree is the achievements of casey single not to be denied. The problem the casey stangl ran into like all of us.

"Me. Ohio republican senator rob portman because he has a pretty generally modern record and he's retired so no real political cost anyway. well what. What are your thoughts on this. The cr yeah. I probably would have voted with Senate leader mcconnell I probably typically would right around and look. I think this was a this was a republican win in that they got essentially the clean bill. They want it right That there's an extension They avoided the the argument that they've somehow shut down the government But at the same time they're keeping everybody's feet to the fire by by setting a by making only run through december so Look this is what mcconnell wanted. And i i often lament Republicans were the casey stangl. Can't anyone here play this game But mitch mcconnell played the game. He played it well. And i you know kudos to. I don't i don't think he you know you. And i when we talked to a couple of weeks ago. Neither one of us leave that we would reach this. You know shutdown type thing was it was brinksmanship and someone would Would do something eventually at and they did so. Yeah i'm i'm in the same position i've completely unsurprised about that. Cr are just a basically a matter of course at this point and so yeah. I think it was pretty unsurprising. I actually think this was the way it should have gone. I was not. I was not crazy about tying the cr to the debt ceiling in any case i think there are two separate things and so i'm perfectly fine with with how this happened and speaking and i should've i should've yeah. I should have made that clear what i was talking about. I said clean bill. That's what the democrats had wanted was votes were drawn on both at the same time and republicans are are very much opposed to giving democrats a free pass on the that ceiling absolutely and speaking of the debt ceiling noth-. Nothing much has changed really with that though this week. Treasury secretary janet yellen said that even with the extraordinary measures the department is taking the debt ceiling will be reached by october eighteenth. But she also said you know that it's only an estimate and that this uncertainty underscores the critical importance of not waiting to raise or suspend the debt limit and yellen also. This week voiced support for legislation introduced in. May that would repeal the debt ceiling entirely. She noted that as congress makes these decisions approves these decisions on taxes and spending. It should also provide the ability to essentially honor those prior obligations. And i wanted to get your take on that. I mean janet. Yellen nova lot about the economy as she's only in economist. Not only the treasury secretary but she's also a former chair of the federal reserve. And so what do you think about You know her ideas and yeah. Let's just repeal the debt ceiling entirely..

The fans really had the barn rocking I really hope the islanders can ride the wave of momentum. Back to pittsburgh and take a lead in the series. But let's keep the sports memories rolling along here welcoming our next guest. He's making a return to the show. He's an author of our bombs. The brooklyn dodgers in history memory in popular culture. He was with us last year to talk about his book. The new york mets in popular culture critical essays. Slightest book is titled nineteen sixty two baseball and america in the time of jfk. Let's welcome in david crowley defense. Good evening good evening to you sir. What gave you the idea for this book david. Well originally. the book was called the amazing season and it was only going to cover the mets and the cult forty fives and of course. The word amazing comes from casey stangl famous clip amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing when i got to this writer's workshop i i had enrolled in it before and my brooklyn dodgers book. Our bums was birthed in the workshop. So when i took the workshop again the literary agent who taught the class said books with broader topics get broader readerships and. I came home that night. And i found an awful lot of things that happened besides the inaugural years with my beloved mets and forty fives. You had to cuban missile crisis. Let is no header. Marilyn monroe dying. Jackie kennedy giving televised tour of the white house. You had the first year for dodger stadium more will stealing one hundred four bases don drysdale winning the cy young nationally playoff between the giants and dodgers and the giants yankees world series goes seven games. So what's this extraordinary year. And i said baseball has to be the through line. But i wanna cover other things. That happened in america's while. I have to tell the folks david the cover of this amazing book. It's really it's really a nice looking book The cover features. Jfk a lbj hall of famer ford frick the commissioner. And you will see that when you pick this book up and i wanna talk to you a little bit about a little more david about the formation of the colt forty five's and the mass talk a little bit about that for us. Well the cul forty five is a story. That's untapped as you know and when we had the shaver convention down in houston for Two thousand fourteen. I went to the university of houston one day. I skipped the presentations. Because you h has an archive of george curtis paper. Who was kirksey perks. He was a public relations guy. He was public relations expert and he helped that team get off the ground. They needed money. They had a lot of oil money. Obviously in houston. They had a lot of money in houston but they needed someone to help market. But in curtseys papers there are memorandum ladders. Demographics studies media projections. And so on. So when i saw this layout. I said this has to be one chapter. And that's what gave me the idea to do. A chapter for each of the five teams and then explore american exceptionalism in other areas as well but with regards to the cult. Forty-five i had the pleasure of interviewing thin man. Who's the grandson of judge. Roy hof hines hines was really the engine that ran the cult. Forty five slater the astros. He was the guy who the press wanted to talk to. He was the guy who was the most famous involving the front office. And that's really another until story. hit his iconography. If you will in the city of houston one other thing. I'd like to talk about. David is during this time period. Dodger stadium or the iconic ballparks in major league baseball debuts now i had read somewhere that the the mets when it came time to build shea stadium had a choice of to architect s- the one they chose or the gentleman who built dodger stadium and dodger. Stadium just happened to outlast shea stadium by several. Several years is that true I'd have to do more research to confirm that. What i what i do know is that o'malley walter o'malley the dodgers owner sought chavez ravine and said stadium would go perfectly there and it was modern for its time. I think it looks modern now. My understanding is that when he built it people said no. You can't be done this. This isn't right and so on everyone was was picking it apart yet. How are people going to get there and so forth. But it's turned out to be a gem and i- undergone some renovations recently but it's the third oldest ballpark in the us. And i think it's extraordinary that it hasn't had to be torn down and hasn't had to be rebuilt. But i i hope it lasts for another sixty because it's just an extraordinary thing to watch it. Sure is we're speaking with david. Krell tonight about his book on one thousand nine hundred sixty two and the story of america and baseball. During that time you mentioned one fascinating character in in the History of major league baseball. And that's boba linski. He's he's got a great story. Tell us a little bit. More about both david bowie. A jersey boy like myself. I grew up in springfield. He grew up in trenton. Which is about an hour. Away and trenton in the fifties was not easy place to grow up in but instead of playing in the american legion or the pony leaks. He was hanging out in pool halls. He became a pool shark of sorts. This is not an ideal growing up situation for a teenager in the fifties but he did well enough to get to. The miners finally gets to the angels And in sixty two. He's a rookie and he pitches a no hitter. Now he becomes this idol of sorts. Handsome guy he's dating. Actresses actresses that men fantasize about. He's dating he's living. The male fantasy goes into a. He goes into a restaurant. Everybody wants to shake his hand. The girls want to be with him. The men wants to be him but he develops an alcohol problem and this is reflected throughout his life. Now i had the opportunity to talk to people who knew vote in the last ten years of his life when he got to las vegas which you would think is not a great place to find recovery. But he found stability with this auto dealership called finley auto and they own dealerships down the mountain states region and the people with whom i spoke bill. They didn't recognize the bow. That people talked about. They didn't know the carousing the boozing bo the womanizing. They didn't know that they found a more courtly guy. A genial guy and.

"All right folks. We're back with sports. Talk new york here on wgn cd from beautiful downtown merrick. Long island i tell you. I was out at city field on thursday for the degrom. Rain out A real rough day so happy that he got a w yesterday a great game. Pitch by marcus. Stroman today Things are looking up as the mets. Go into wrigley field for a series with the cubs. But i you have to look at the. The mets fly out to denver after getting rained out and then they get snowed out. And that's only the mets folks and that's perfectly in for our next guest. Let's keep the sports memories rolling along. Our next guest is a writer for a number of publications including the atlantic. The new york times magazine and espn the magazine. He served as an executive director g. q. And he was a writer and editor at newsweek. His new book is titled so many ways to lose the amazing true story of the new york. Mets the best worst team in sports welcoming tonight. Devon gordon devon good evening evening. It's a good day for the matt. I ask yes. We had a good day. Of course they make you. You know they give you a stroke watching it. But it was worth the ends that that ending could a game. That was positively competent. Yeah that was. That was like that was some real baseball right there. You know but unfortunately it's not all know certainly not protein israel right now right now the idea for the book and the title which some people some fans may consider derogatory Tell us how you came up with that. Well the title is is a is sort of paraphrase of casey stangl wine. You know as he writing most most met books Than have sort of a self defeating yourself. A facing title probably owes its origins to bengal. And some kind of way Casey stangl said something to the effect of. I had no idea these. This team is showing you ways to lose. I didn't know a gift. It right and that just sort of stuck with me as sort of a a great way to think about the history of our franchise and it's sort of started with you know this notion of what is a we stuck with this. Is this in our dna. Why are we like this. Because you know we are so excited about sixty nine innings six. But those aren't really what we think of when we think of life is a mets fan. Are they all the other stuff. So i wanted to try to see if i could go back and trace the roots and the roots usually casey stengel. Right you're exactly correct. Ever now as cited in the book jacket folks. You can get a synopsis right there. The mets lost an all star after he was attacked by a wild boar. You they blew a six run ninth inning lead at the peak of pennant race and then they fired their manager before he skippered a game. This can only be the mets and talk a little bit about those incidents devon. Well those you know. One of the reasons why i wanted to put those incidents on the jackets laugh because they happen to all in one season that was all twenty. That was all nineteen un assessment. It's getting charged by a wild boar right ryan. Blois six run in the ninth inning of the washington nationals. The most important game of the season we had caught all the way back into the pen. Great playoff race. That game only to blow with a six run ninth inning. And then of course carlos beltran gets fired before he's able even able to manage the game and that is one season of new york mets baseball so it seemed like a fitting way to sort of summarize with active. That all could happen in two thousand nineteen rebadging. What can happen when we're going all the way back. Sixty years right exactly. It's a a riskier. Health was speaking author. David gordon tonight now a reversal of fortune. That's that's the deal. That's the encapsulated incidents. That's that's our thing got thing that's our thing and and you know the the thing about reversal of fortune. Is that every now and then reversing the way you want to write an in order to in order to truly gifted and special about these kinds of These horrific collapses or creative feeds. You have to have had a taste of women because that's sort of like that's what keeps you optimistic right. It's stupid. it's what takes a stupid right every now and then we get a little bit of winning and we think maybe we've gotten rid of this person. Maybe we're no longer than that but the thing about that's even after we pull off our city mazing dose of winning the other part of it is that What's coming next right if we win this year which we are going to by the way of course every not stand knows. We're winning the world series this year. Exactly but if we do and when we do what's coming for us in twenty twenty two is going to be scary. Yes and that's the way it is folks now when i remember Back in his In the midst of a pennant run in nineteen sixty nine. Nobody remembers this. But let's pause for a moment in the pennant. Run to get no headed by the buckles. And bob moist right. Yes yes very. Few teams in the course of iraqi run to a world series title. Get no hit ryan. Mets did the mets. Did i mean it was the mess in nine. Is you know that was the season they had just an offense right with all of those amazing arms. They had through that he wrote. That was the one year when they cobbled together. Just enough offense to win a world series. But i'm nice. They definitely didn't have just enough offense right. I mean it's it was a lot of one run games a lot of tom. Seaver shutout jerry. Kouzmin complete game shutout. You know those sorts of things not a lotta rumour that's right and then also in sixty nine one at steve carlton striking out. Nineteen mets only to be defeated by ron swoboda's to two run homers. That one i mean. I feel like there's something special about something about the era of like you know that late sixties pitcher dominant euro could have a world series title team that got no hits and got struck out nineteen times in one game and you know of course. Tom seaver almost threw a perfect game. That season right now particular and end and so it's kinda mazing to think that in in in basically one summer of nineteen sixty. The mets got no hit. Tom seaver through what he considers to be the best game he's ever pitched and qualcomm struck down nineteen at the helm a pitching. You're right there right. Some tremendous memories now They went in seventy three game seven in the world series from last place in two months. There's another incident of medicine right there. Yeah i mean you know going from lack the first in the span of two months is messy enough on its own right but ending you could be. You can end the story right there and pretty impressive that they went from last place in the playoffs. Then they beat the big red machine right and then they almost beat Oakland athletics like the just dynastic. Incredibly powerful oakland athletics. But the reason why they didn't of course is because yogi bear a box. Pitching rotation another insights. Yes oh so. You know if the mets were going to blow miraculous run to the world series. That's a pretty good way right. They can't just lose an ordinary boring fashion. They've gotta have you know yankee. Legend yogi berra managing the next mess up our rotation right. Why i lose it on the field directly. Why was it on the field when you in a far more messy way exactly and and then we move on to to the next year of success in eighty six. The the mets kill it all year destroying every everybody in their path and then almost blew up blew the playoffs to houston and almost blew.
