Tom, Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me. The MLB commissioner Rob Manfred. Manfred announced the they're finally going to recognize Negro League players as major league players. This is a century after racial segregation, segregation that never should have happened. Ah, does this decision have any practical effect on records because it certainly doesn't on payroll right? It does affect the record. Scott MLB will study how exactly to fold into the official record record book, the achievements of approximately 3400 players who played in the Negro Leagues from 1922 1948. And it's challenging because these Negro League stats are scattershot and incomplete. But MLB is determined to do. This is a way to quote correct a longtime oversight in the game's history. Oversight on Bear has been some rich skepticism, hasn't it from quarters? We we know in respect. We Dortch at colleague Howard Bryant wrote a powerful piece yesterday, saying What MLB really needed to do is acknowledge that existing excluding Excuse me black players. For so long wasn't an oversight but a deliberate system that reinforced black inferiority like the rest of society did, And it would be much more significant significant to keep Negro League stats separate and not blend them with major league stats as a way to preserve the difficult history of what Negro Leaguers, experience, substandard facilities and travel, inconsistent schedules and those in perfect stats. I feel obliged as the author of a book about Jackie Robinson. To point out. Jackie Robinson, of course, was the biggest all sports college athlete in the country, track based basketball. Even a great golfer. He did not like the five months that he played in the Negro leagues with the Kansas City Monarchs. He certainly Racism, the indignity of traveling by bus to America as a black team in 1945. Um He respected his fellow athletes, but also thought there was a kind of circus aspect to the league like that. The great peerless pitcher Satchel Paige would wave three men under the basis so we could strike out the side. You talked to an important person in Negro League history this year. Did in 96 year old Bill Greece and one of the few living former Negro leaguers. He played on the Birmingham Black Baron's in the late 19 forties with Willie Mays. He told me he did like his time in the Negro leagues, and I asked him if he and those he played with were angry about being kept out of the majors, and here's what he said. No, no, no. We just didn't do it playing baseball and salaries with that much, so we had to enjoy And watch. Jackie broke the thing and we felt that we had an opportunity to Make it to the majors and Scott, Greece and, in fact didn't make it for one season in 1954, But certainly many many Negro leaguers playing long before Jackie Robinson integrated the majors in 1947, they didn't have the opportunity and likely did feel the anger from being kept out. And let us note as we leave Tara VanDerveer of Stanford racked up her 1099th win on Tuesday. She's now surpassed Pat Summitt of Tennessee for most victories in Division one women's basketball, and it's a great achievement for her. She was always a bit under the radar in the women's game, because some it commanded most of the attention.

And it's challenging because these Negro League stats are scattershot and incomplete. But MLB is determined to do. This is a way to quote correct a longtime oversight in the game's history. Oversight on Bear has been some rich skepticism, hasn't it from quarters? We we know in respect. We Dortch at colleague Howard Bryant wrote a powerful piece yesterday, saying What MLB really needed to do is acknowledge that existing excluding Excuse me black players. For so long wasn't an oversight but a deliberate system that reinforced black inferiority like the rest of society did, And it would be much more significant significant to keep Negro League stats separate and not blend them with major league stats as a way to preserve the difficult history of what Negro Leaguers, experience, substandard facilities and travel, inconsistent schedules and those in perfect stats. I feel obliged as the author of a book about Jackie Robinson. To point out. Jackie Robinson, of course, was the biggest all sports college athlete in the country track base basketball. Even a great golfer. He did not like the five months that he played in the Negro leagues with Kansas City Monarchs. He certainly Racism, the indignity of traveling by bus to America as a black team in 1945. He respected his fellow athletes, but also thought there was a kind of circus aspect to the league like that. The great perilous pitcher Satchel Paige would wave three men onto the basis so we could strike out the side. You talked to an important person in Negro League history this year. Did in 96 year old Bill Greece and one of the few living former Negro leaguers. He played on the Birmingham Black Baron's in the late 19 forties with Willie Mays. He told me he did like his time in the Negro leagues, and I asked him if he and those he played with were angry about being kept out of the majors, and here's what he said. No, no, no. We just didn't do it playing baseball and sours with that much, so we had to enjoy And watch. Jackie broke this thing and we felt that we had an opportunity to make it to the majors and Scott, Greece and, in fact didn't make it for one season in 1954, but certainly many many Negro leaguers playing long before Jackie Robinson integrated the majors in 1947, they didn't have the opportunity and likely did feel the anger from being kept out. And let us note as we leave Tara VanDerveer of Stanford racked up for 1099th went on Tuesday. She's not surpassed Pat Summitt of Tennessee for most victories in Division one women's basketball, and it's a great achievement for her. She was always a bit under the radar in the women's game, because some it commanded most of the attention, but now his VanDerveer is moment to shine. And using that moment in a bigger and timely way by encouraging donations to food banks, which she is doing so good on her from Goldman. Thanks. You're welcome.

They have ideas for what to do with the other half of that head of cabbage. They have cool ideas for how to freeze and reuse things.

"Land. Berman Michael Riedel on 7 10. Wooo. Well, if you're a Mets fan, perhaps you're following the chaos that was going on in the city field yesterday. It started with the idea that the Mets and Marlins we're gonna play a baseball game and it ended. With the owner and the president team, putting out a statement ripping their very own general manager. It was just well, what else can you say? It was a Meziane day, and as a result, I texted Natalie and said, We've got to get him here. Leon Tim is the Newsday beat writer on DH Tim graciously is giving us this time again this morning, Timmy, I was just Scratching my head Where you I was scratching my head at. Why quote quite a few different parts of what went on yesterday for the Met. Uh, obviously, they weren't the only game in baseball or in sports to be postponed as part of this Protest, But the Mets, of course, had their own special twist on it. Courtesy of a hot mic and a few other things. So ah, another interesting day and met Atlantis totally will take us through it to me once you take us through chronologically a little bit about what happened yesterday so everyone can figure it out. Will be third today. There was uncertainty about whether or not they would play right the night before. Dominic Smith, who was one of two black players on the team, really? Or to bare his soul on camera. You know, it's coming, bringing himself tears talking about Ah, what he how he had been feeling lately. Hey, had kneel for the national anthem on Wednesday. You'd be going that player to do so and that sort of really set this off. I believe come Thursday, There was a doubt about whether the game would be played. There was a team meeting Ah, manager Louise RoHaas met with the players around 3 P.m.. Manager Louise Relapse was supposed to do his usual pregame press conference with reporters around four PM and then that got pushed back and ended up not happening at all. So when that happened, you know something is going on. During the wait between his scheduled press conference and first pitch. A video surfaces on Twitter, and it turns out that came straight from metz dot com. And it was a video of GM Brody bandwagon and saying that the commissioner Rob Manfred, Has this idea of The Met can walk off the field at seven PM and then come back in an hour at 8 P.m. and then play the game and that would fight as Faras. Protests go, and then they would still get the game in So you also, you know, ripped the manager. I mean, he ripped a commissioner saying he just doesn't get it, etcetera. So while the Mets are formulating their protests with the Marlins behind the scene All of a sudden all the attention is going on the GM who took the practically unheard of step of ripping the commissioner. Finally, seven PM comes the mess immoral and take the field. Everybody, you know, pretend they're going to play. But obviously something is up. They have a 42 2nd moment of silence and then walk off the field and the game isn't happening. So instead of just the postponement, like other teams went the method Marlon's went with a little more symbolism, a little more drama in terms of trying to get their point across. A few minutes after that. Brody van wagon and sent out a statement that basically said you know that video you guys all saw and heard pretty clearly that was actually a misunderstanding. It was Team owner Jeff Wilpon's idea, tto feeling that come back so Whoa! Plan, essentially whether it was his idea or not. He ended up taking the bullet for Manfred and Brody van Wagon and apologize to publicly and privately. Tio Rob Man for the commissioner. And to capital off later around 10 30 years, So you know the dust settles. The message to the press conference is, um Fred Wilpon, who owned the mat and his son, Jeff Wilpon, who runs the Matt really separate statements about the Brody Manfred dustup and both of those, you know, wagon and gets blasted, man. Forget supported. But they misspelled. Brody van Wagon is first name in both statement. Just kind of the cherry on top of perfect does that today. So you asked the chronology of it, then I feel better job, but that's no good job. I think everyone wants to know exactly what happened. What's the upshot here? Are they going to play their next game? It sounds like they're gonna play today. They actually have to play twice against the Yankees. This is gonna be the beginning of a five games in three days. Stretch on DH today is Robinson Day, coincidentally, across Major League baseball, so there will be no players, all wearing number 42 as Jackie Robinson did in a couple of other Ah Jackie Robinson seems touches along those lines. So it's sort of ah, that this is all happening in sports. And in baseball this week leading up Jackie Robinson Day is just Really a coincident Jackie Robinson. They had planned for today for months. And so as far as I know they're going to play and really schedule wise. If they don't play today than they start to get refreshed a big time schedule Crown hates him. We're basically out of time when they can announce the sale of the team. Well. Final bids are due Monday. Steve Cohen, hedge fund boss is still the favorite, and I would expect an announcement not too long after Monday. Thank you to me. Great job. Thanks for the chronology. Thanks for taking some time with us. Tim Healy, the fine beat writer for Newsday for the match. Thanks to me. Thank you. All right, coming up next. So what's Joe Biden's response to what the president is saying about him and also just what you want. We got a thought from Nancy Pelosi coming up next. Every day.

"Been canceled today, including the Cardinals and the Brewers. After Jonathan. The Cardinals had four positive tests. DeKoven 19 over the last couple of days. It's concerning to see what's happening with the Marlins now having over 20 positive tests the Phillies. I mean, there's a lot Going on in the wrong direction. It's trending in the wrong way right now from Major League Baseball whenever there is a crisis in ST Louis, in a major story breaks with the Cardinals, only one man that we will call And that was Mike Shannon. He said No. So he was busy. So instead our other good friend Chris Ranji, Great host on ESPN, ST. Louis, 101 ESPN. He gives us time. He joins us on the shell. Pennzoil Performance line. Ranji, my friend. I joke. You're our guy. Thank you so much for making us Part of your afternoons here on this weekend, so is the is the concern that it's about to get a lot worse for the Cardinals. That could potentially be a lot more than ultimately just four people testing positive. Well, first of all, Mike Shannon ain't got time for YouTube and never in 2nd 2nd but I do. I will always have time. But is there concern? Yeah. I mean, especially if you look at what happened with the Marlins. It was like What two or three guys they had tested positive. In the next day. It was zero and then Before you know what they got, like, 20. So Yeah, there's there's a lot of concern there. And especially because I like I don't know how they think they're even possibly going tto play a double header tomorrow and I haven't heard yet. I don't think they've cancelled it yet. There were still some talk about them may be trying to power through and having those two games tomorrow and see how that's possible. They haven't already canceled him, and it also doesn't seem like They're going to be able to play on Monday or Tuesday. I mean, it really does seem like a like a situation where there's gonna have to wait awhile because this is exactly what happened with Florida. The Phillies have had what zero positive test the Namun played in several days, and they're not going to get to play again until Tuesday. I think So I mean, there's just so much going on here. This is this is a very bad situation and I think what? What? I don't know if it's better or worse, that it wasn't a thing that they contracted it by playing the Marlins. I almost think that would be really bad. Because that would mean that on the field, those two teams playing against each other, we're spreading it back and forth. That would be a bad thing. But it's not a good thing, either that the two teams had nothing to do with each other, and they still caught it, which means it's out there. It's in the country and it's all over the place and it's very difficult to get away from it. So it just seems like the prospect of Finishing this season is gonna be really tough. I hope they can do it. I really do. All of our livelihood depend on sports happening, So I hope this is able to go on. But it just It does not look great. Chris. How would you assess the job that Commissioner Rob Manfred has done so far? Ah, well, I mean, it's It's not great. I don't think but again, I want to Want to make this clear that all of these leagues are Trying to do something very difficult. And I think the environment they're being asked to play in is a very tough environment to play. And I mean, you're with the exception of going to Canada. And to a country where the virus isn't as rampant as it is here, like that's a little bit easier to do. Plus, they're doing it in a bubble. And from all of the reporting that happened, leading up to baseball trying to implement a season. The idea of playing in the Hub city or doing bubbles of some kind was a nonstarter like that wasn't gonna happen, And I think that had a lot to do with the players Association. I don't think the players wanted to do that. That may have gone a long way. To ensuring the season goes on. But I don't know. There's just something it feels like all of the ideas. They had all of the protocols because they told us while all of the negotiations were going on. With the financial situation in baseball. They kept telling us that on a parallel track, we were also working on the safety protocols. And they had 100 plus page document with safety protocols. It just seems like they left a lot of things out, so I don't know. It just does not feel like this is going in a good direction and hate. The buck stops with him. He's in charge. You know, he can. He may not have absolute power, but a lot of this is going to fall on him, and I think he's probably deserving of it. Chris Ron G. From ESPN. ST. Louis one on ESPN is with us on Dickerson in Hood. It's ESPN radio, the ESPN app serious except Channel 80. There's also Chris the responsibility of the players as we all know, to follow the protocols and follow the rules. And I've noticed that there have been a lot of teams in some big players that have been. I think vocal About the importance of wearing your mask and social distance saying and doing things the right way. I mean, Mike Trout comes to mind with the Angels here in Chicago. Anthony Rizzo, I think has been very outspoken about the need to to really be safe and follow the protocols. What's been the messaging? From the Cardinals. Did you? Did you get the sense that that organization is taking things very seriously? I think the organization is and what's funny is a couple of weeks ago, it might have been Adam Wainwright's. In fact, I think it wass, who had had basically said that there were You know they were going to make sure the veteran players we're going to make sure to stay on top of the young players on this because a lot of times you think it might be the younger player who feel like I'm okay. You know, I'm young. I'll be okay. I don't have to worry about this stuff. Who is the one who steps out goes to a bar ends up catching something and bring it back to the rest of the team. So there was at least talk of that. That the veterans would probably orgs hope that they would stay on top of everybody else and make sure that everybody was falling in line and doing what they were supposed to do. Obviously, that didn't happen. We don't know exactly What the Cardinals did. I know there have been rumors that they went to a casino, but I'm not sure how much that's that's true. We had heard that It was a couple of pitchers early on, but I think they were the first to positive test don't know which pitchers don't know what they were doing or where they went. But you're right about this being a player driven thing I said this weeks ago when we were talking about Whether or not this whole thing was gonna work. It's it's clear that trying to do this in this country right now is going to be difficult because the virus is everywhere. We've done a terrible job of containing it. And I know that people get mad when you say that, But it's true. We have done a brutal job of containing the virus, and now we're asking players to go. Travel the city's different cities and then stay in the hotel room and don't go anywhere and stay away from people who might have it. Well, yeah, it's a tough thing to do, but they kind of have to, so they're put in a really difficult position, but they also have to do their part. If they're told to stay in the hotel. If they're told to not go to bars, and they're told not do anything to not go anywhere. It sucks, but if they've agreed to do it, then do it. You know if you're told Hey, if you're going to sign up for this for the next two plus months, here's what you have to do. Well, you got to do everything. And if you don't want to do with an opt out and don't get paid like that, That's the choice. It's a crappy choice. Nobody wants this, but this is what you have to do, and I hope Well, I did hope that what happened with the Marlins was a wake up call that everybody it kind of sounds like maybe it wasn't. Um, but but hopefully now that it's happened to Miami, and it happened, too. Cardinals and something like one of the 20% of teams haven't been able to play this weekend..

"Let's let's put the dodgers on opening day. The other side of the coin the evil hated Diamondbacks. Call it in the air. Yeah. I'm going to pick the Diamondbacks in front of this crowd. Dodgers easy. Dodgers dodgers there. It is. Okay. I'll go first. Jay, you're in charge of Siri today. Even though we see there we go. Okay. Mace Ziani Russo the actor who played Carlo Connie's husband in the godfather movies. Yes was actually a real life mobster, and he has a new book. Really? Yeah. In the book Rousseau claims. He was told to go to New Orleans in nineteen sixty three and had an envelope of money to give to a guy and give him a message. He met the guy gave him the money. And was told to tell him tell Frank it's on. Rain into a skinny guy on his way out in realize later, the skinny guy was Lee Harvey Oswald Russo thinks he delivered the money that eventually led to the Kennedy assassination later in the book. He claims Marilyn Monroe's death. Wasn't a suicide claims to be present in Lake Tahoe. When Maryland refused to assist in a mob blackmail scheme aimed at the Kennedy brothers. She was screaming from the bungalow. He says she was done with the Kennedy. She was going to to the press. He says she turned up dead shortly after here's my question. Do you believe these stories from Russo or is he just making them up to sell a book? I think this is the kind of stuff that sells books I'm not buying any of it. I've always thought Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. And then Marilyn Monroe OD. Steve what do I love conspiracy theories? They're post through. There is a run for the. Doc Peterson's partner soon with the home run. Two run Homer right Barnes coming home, my guy, or you've you're no Mary Dawson Barnes than I am. I am married to Austin Barnes for this year. All right, then that makes it three nothing dodgers in the bottom of the sec. Excellent. Jay. All right. The San Francisco Giants president Larry Baer was caught on tape throwing his wife to the ground few weeks back. Baseball Commissioner rob Manfred announced his punishment Barra suspended until July the first he's not allowed to go to the park. Can't go to his office camper to Speight in management decisions question is that a fair punishment? And how would it be different? If a player was caught doing the same thing. This is a horrible look for major league baseball. If any player was caught on tape. He would he'd be suspended or in the case like the Kansas City Chiefs, just cut Kareem hunt. Right and Kareem hunt did almost the same thing. Larry Baer, did if you look at that, very very close Kareem, you know, he does push that girl to the ground, and you know, the only Larry didn't have was the kick. Yup. And the girl was screaming much more in the Larry Baer video was the other one and Kareem hunt was cut immediately, basically fired. Over that tape. I think is a terrible look at major league baseball that an old white executive gets off with a slap on the wrist where a young black NFL's leading rusher gets cut and fired. I think it's terrible. I think baseball looks awful. Yeah. Baseball looks awful in this. The punishments should have been more severe. There's no mention of even a fine. You would think of fine could hurt Larry Baer to what he did was inexcusable. And if it was a player he'd be gone for a year without pay Jay.
