Uh, it's working NBC sports and it was old timers Day so my job was to go down on the field and put the NBC sports Signs up right where network TV. It was a game of the week national and so I go down there and there's Sandy Cove fax and don Drysdale playing toss. But I was kind of pitching myself like then. But then I go back up to the booth and I'm standing there. And this is Jackie Robinson walks in Rachel. And then he looks over and sees her and says, Oh, Rachel, and that kind of gives you spines. You know, it really does. She's a great lady. I'm Marty, Larry and valid and Get a couple interviews with her and just how the character her is and how much she talks about Jackie and some of the things he had to go through, and she was right there next to him. It was. It was a difficult time for that. That whole period. Of Jackie Robinson and so many great black athletes that had to go through all the shame and things that happened to him, and, you know, I'm just glad they honor him every year. I'm glad they're doing that. And they should and Continue to keep doing that for some of the great athletes that had to go through some of the hard times. I'm drivin Veni the candlestick one time from the four seasons and I made a wrong move on the freeway there and Vinny. Said. Oh, watch out like he was announcing the game. So that that was pretty cool. That's great. Craig. Thanks for the call. Great stories is always hit me up down the road, My friend. Have a good night. You gotta thank you, Bill. Thanks, Craig. Let's go to Patrick in Detroit. Patrick Man, what's going on with the Tigers? They're falling. They got 20 losses already. What is going on in the Motown? I know that it's just kind of sad, but they're still in the rebuilding process. Why is that? The answer to everybody? When they started losing? We're going to rebuild all we're going to do this. Why can't they just say Hey, You know, my boy Cabrera's at 1, 29 or less, isn't he's struggling. You got that big contract to? Yeah, it was a couple more years on it doesn't Yeah, I know. You talk about Jackie Robinson. He almost became a giant 1957. They traded him to the Giants for a church. Stop Name. Pick Littlefield. Mm hmm. And that didn't want to play with the Giants. We quit baseball. You know, I heard that and I was wondering why was there Was there ever a reason that he gave for that? No. No reason. Well, you gotta think the Dodgers for one thing they got the Giants in California wasn't for Walter O'Malley onto the horse stone them with a movement. In fact, that story of the mayor of New York what? I'm going to move to a place he medals and they had in the Dodgers got that land free and Chavez Ravine was given to him free, so they moved out there. But before that, the mayor system there's somebody has some questions about your father O'Malley and I dont killer. In a room and you had a gun with bullets. Would you shoot first? Think I was too well, though, Melih twice. Wow. That's a good one. Where you pulling that out of your bag of tricks today from Oh, Hey, I just thought of something. Who do you think it's the first home run you've ever seen. Pardon me. I really missed that one. What it was it The furthest home run every furthers home run that I saw it was that Candlestick Park and I'm tried. Dave Parker hit it any upper deck in right center field. Now you got to remember right center field was way over to the right offer. Rini Martin. And the ball was it was unbelievable. How day Parker hit that ball he hits a mammoth was no doubt about it. The first one average C. Max Cecil Fielder when he hit him out of Yankee Stadium. He was unbelievable. And baby brother's son out. One kind was like 11 years old and it's selling. See the balls in the left seat. Oh, wait. Yeah, but the first home run every hit in baseball. It was a man or wasn't route again in Joey Meyer played. Remember Joe admire. I remember him. Yeah. Doing market head he could hit once in a while. He had a good swing at him. You was from. He's from her wife. That is not what we're going to the security guard in, uh, Molly. But here Bo at Denver Mile High Stadium by 182 ft. Open the triple decker, Everyone the Devil Stadium my line. Well, That's where we played Triple ad I played in Omaha. So we went there a lot. Randy Bass. Remember him bass? Would this man he'd hit mammoth falls over there? A guy named Robert Tate, another guy that never made it to the big leagues. You look like Andre Dawson. He would do another. Those. Those two guys were probably the longest in Triple A And both of them should have been in the big leagues. Every time Randy Bass came up that was with the part when he got traded on the Padres. He struck out all the time. He never really got on the mark in the big leagues. He just couldn't hit the big leagues. That was a team called the Denver's sent Zephyr's Zephyr's. Yeah, well, there were the Denver Bears for many years, many years and then they turn into the zephyrs. Was reformed system of the Rockies Brewers. You know we're gonna do well when the when the Bears were that was the Expos. That's where they had triple I've exposed because that's where Tim Raines was Wallick. Razor shines Wally, and it wasn't Wally Backman. I'm trying to think of the second baseman they had, but that's where mostly all your triple a expose play that that's where I got to play against them a lot. You know, you talk about all the strikeouts that I think people that I'm badly They want to get over that ship, so they're trying to lift the ball. That's why they're striking out so much about 28 28 2 guns. Dodges rebuilding both. Please. I think a strikeout and 1966. I'm not taking back. The ST Louis Cardinals had a pitcher named wiry Jaster. He was 35 31. That was his career set, but he shut the Dodgers up 1966 5 comes five consecutive games. He shut the only Dodgers up and that was a good team because they won the world seriously before you, the Minnesota glint. They went into the World Service and the Orioles that amount for straight, But Nobody's ever done the Larry Justice well back in the day You said the Orioles Orioles used to have just starting pitching one after another back in the day. They they just had some great pictures from Palmer McNally Quay are I mean, I go on an adoption? Remember those guys when they all won 20 games here in Palmer and McNally man, Dave McNally was nasty bad there was that was that was a good time for the Orioles. That was when the Orioles of Brooks Robinson boob Powell You still love watching book, Paul back? Was a great hitter like the first baseman. Sure, Absolutely. But in that world Series Copas that got beat six to nothing. And Willie Davis make three Arizona What any incentives Bill and I was so unusual, isn't it? Patrick? That's unusual for him. Yes. Three areas in one inning. I got an autographed baseball. Johnny bench. I don't know if you're you know much Johnny bench, but he was the only one that could hold seven. Thanks. Paul's E. No. I know that. What? I've seen pictures of it in the The commercial with the paint thing that tried to do it again to. It's pretty funny how they bring that up. Johnny Bench was stellar Catcher. I mean, I I still think he's probably the best catcher. Uh, we started looking at all the great ones. How would you like to leave the Mets pitcher yesterday? He wants two games to one and the only two runs the Phillies got with the bases were loaded and the picture was Patty with an old to come out swinging this and two runs scored on the while. I'm a passed ball game to the one How about the Milwaukee Dodger game tonight? In extra innings? That was a fiasco. Dodgers score two and in Milwaukee.

When rob was a newspaper columnist he lived by this motto. If i'm writing i'm ripping let's bring in a writer of broadcaster older new now. Welcome to the podcast david grow. He's a content reporter for mlb bro dot com which just debuted april first on opening day. David welcome to the podcast. How you doing. I'm doing well so glad to talk to you again and Just a generalist statement about where we are with. They'll be dot com. And what's to come. Yes and i want you to explain to people for We put our cards on the table. People some people do know that i created it. I'm the founder and editor of mlb. Bro dot com. Where we cover black and brown major leaguers. But you tell me your thoughts Joining the site. And what's been you know. What are you. What are you like so far about working for the site The tomorrow being jackie robinson day The piece that i'm doing for that has some of those thoughts in it and when we first talked about this in new orleans when you first talked to me about it and obviously you've been planning this for a while it immediately resonated with me because of my love for the game of baseball in the fact if there have been so many of us wanted to either talk about the game right about the game. be involved in and promote the game and bring it back to this part of how much it's been a a major factor in the lives of black people in this country how much we've is in the spirit of baseball and i just think that we have an opportunity to break that fun back to Put some highlights on this new crop of young ball players and the ones that are already established and then shine light on players that you know this generation our generation. May even you know just taking for granted a great educational opportunity on the one hand but at the same time if the game and we want people to enjoy it and love and i think that's what i'm taking from it no doubt and let's just talk about some of the players that covered on. Mlb bro dot com and byron. Buxton is having. Maybe this might be his breakout year. Twenty seven years old finally healthy talk about the minnesota twins center fielder. It's so big for him. Like you said to be healthy. I mean you know the last couple of seasons there many things that have done as well as the twins environ books should have been in the middle of all of that but he missed so many days anything even last year missing that game with the astros cost minnesota so much a theme that just hasn't been able to give get over the hump in the postseason if he can play all year. And then you get four sixty nine for the year but when you see the things that have changed for him you see that he's taking more walks You can see that. He's you know he's turning into a bladder guerrero type where he may swing it outside zone. But he's making contact developing an automated kind of doesn't swing and miss not doing those things at the plate that that'll hinted interview and then we make contact. He's crushing the ball. I mean velocities are always top two three every night so i mean that consistency if it carries over it so connected to his health but right now you say he's playing as best you know if not the best the top two or three position players all no doubt about it. He is balling out another guy. Who's having a great season and if you go back to last year. Cedric mullins with the baltimore orioles center fielder. He has a fifteen game hitting streak going into wednesday. Tell us about cedric. You look at people. Forget that coming into the. I'll be in touch four hundred back yet in the big leagues. So i mean you know. We'll take some time and you're talking about a leadoff guy who has valves grown into that role in being a little better. So for taking those pitches you know reading. The office is setting your team up with put runners on base. And that's what he's done guy what he's second in all the baseball batting average right now. He's getting all basically stealing bases at a higher rate than he ever has before his home run rate is up. is you know. Even though he's only one so far this season just bet and then you're getting walkie being selected with us and so we from his first year from two thirty five and then played the next beth last year. Twenty twenty is there to seventy and now again you don't expect it. The hang in the mid four hundred zero year but just seeing that development that growth that consistency especially in knowing the strike zone and allowing himself to work pitchers rather.

Maybe anthony masterson is his name. Bs analytics is a. What do you got for me. Anthony trying to get the analytical side of baseball and get a little overwhelmed. Don't worry you're not alone there. Mountains of data out there and it's hard to know where to begin today. I will try to help you out. You may have seen statcast. Data sided on broadcasters not put all their analytical eggs in statcast basket back in two thousand fifteen baseball savant is mlb's publicly available statcast website and their game feed has every piece of data. You'll ever need. Here's a quick primer. Each pitch thrown gives the pitch velocity spin rate where the higher the revolutions per minute the to pitch generally moves as well as the pitchers extension. How much closer to the plate. The mound the pitcher releases the pitch the higher the extension faster the pitch may appear if a ball is put in play. A whole mess of data is at your disposal. i you exit velocity. How hard the ball is hit the launch angle and the hit probability which is takes into account. How hard devos. It's how high up the ground. It was how far the ball was hit. The ballpark the position of the fielders and the probability of similar balls with those numbers in the stack database to spit out within seconds. How that batted ball would be a basit. A for example in sunday's twenty mariners tilt kyle seager to pitch from twins closer out of column aimed at one zero five point four miles hour up to bat but the launch angle of thirty degrees was so high. Hit probability was only fifty seven percent and yet the ball carried out to right center for game winning three run homer as the ball state in the air force. Walking six point. Four seconds one of the longest. Hang times for any dinger this year. Curious mind is your best friend. When it comes to befriending analytics was a big week in a big leagues is it is it fair and now from mlb broke dot com. Here's jr gamble. R. j. r. Is it foul or fair to say that trevor. Bauer is shutting up the haters and is as advertised. And we'll keep this up all season long. That's fair that's fair ball. Bauer takes a lot of people as opinionated nature in fact a lot of doubt that fans experience about the dodgers giving him a three year one hundred and two million dollars deal had to do with backlash he received what he says on social media on the field in the league. Pitching can't be all contested. When bauer gave up four runs in six innings and two bombs in his first start they hate us and they say who won. Don't want the dog has to go back to back to don't want to seem balancing see. We're all over him already saying he wouldn't live up to deal. What has the two thousand twenty cy young award winning done saying well to win his last thirteen and two thirds innings giving up two runs out nineteen batters and this is just in the last seven. Bayed watch se by was moving and proven. Let's not get the bomb. By mookie including taylor and cory seager to back them up and the list goes on and on for the dodgers who are more talented than jackson five. He wasn't getting that kind of backup insensitive. So i'd say bowers driver's seat and he's pumping fish getting ready for a world series run eight and they'll be investigation.

Welcome into the podcast. I'm your host rob parker. What a show we have for you today. we're gonna talk with former major league. Slugger dave parker. That's why cobra joins inside the parker. Also we'll talk with a reporter david up from mlb dot com that much more. Let's go to lead off. It's getting rough and keep them rob's hot. Take the three biggest stories in major league baseball number. One april fifteen is jackie robinson day. All across major league baseball as we honor the great jackie robinson of course nine hundred and forty seven broke the color beria and for for his heroic stance and able to endure all that he went through baseball recognizes him. All players managers coaches umpire's on field personnel will once again where the iconic number forty two on games this year on april fifteenth and sixteenth which is great so we get a double dip of jackie robinson day that fame number forty two and a all we can do is thank jackie robinson for what he meant to not only baseball. But this country. Jackie robinson is an american icon. An american hero a brave man who was more than a ball player. He was a game changer. He changed life especially for black and brown people in this country. And we are forever indebted to jackie robinson number to say it isn't so for nando tease junior could be in the lineup for the san diego padres on friday when they host the dodgers with a showdown of a three game series. Down at petco. A we all want to see him play. There's no doubt about it by far one of the most exciting players in baseball. But i thought the shoulder popped out and i thought that there was some damage there and it might be two or three months before we see him. But he was on tuesday in pittsburgh taking bp and bob nightingale from usa today tweeted out that he's expected to play on friday against the dodgers. I just wonder if they were playing colorado rockies or the cleveland indians detroit tigers. Would he be playing this weekend. I don't think so. But it's a big series. This is unbelievable that he's back this soon. I hope he doesn't do more damage to himself. So we'll watch for that any chance to see tat. Tease is worth the view number. Three no shocker. For me before the season started. I said that. Trevor bauer would win the national league. Cy young again. He wanted last year with the reds during the sixty game kobe shortened season. But i thought to myself this. La guy playing for his hometown team. That's loaded with hitter's up and down the up you know. He's the highest paid player in baseball. This season making forty million dollars but boy has he been outstanding dust for to record. The numbers have been downright scary. Twenty nine strikeouts in twenty innings pitched this season ready for this opponents or batting. I'll poultry one zero three against bauer again. What a signing by the dodgers and. He has been as advertised. He is my leading candidate for national league. Cy young award winner number four. And finally i guess the boston red sox aren't dead. Don't you remember the panic when they started out. Oh and three. It was like the sky is falling. Oh he comes another long season for the red sox. People call them the dead sox. Guess what on wednesday. They won their eighth game in a row. The red sox are rolling. Here comes the big interview. Listen and learn words so woke him into the podcast now. One of my favorite former major leaguers day parker who was a outon out star with the pittsburgh pirates. He has a new book coming out called cobra of baseball and brotherhood day parker. Welcome to inside the park. How you do a man will and you do a very very well tell us about. Let's just jumping about the book. And what made you want to write this. Well it's been trying to write it for about thirty years when i entered some providence followed. I thought it would have been a good time right then but I held off on in about thirty years. Battling and here it is what what what do you take. People on your whole journey through baseball into brotherhood part is that you know your friendships and bonds. You may other players. During the time he played and then actually spend a lot of time. And all the young stars like eric davis law him to count daniels. All o.'neil guys were god. Then i turn and I enjoy those agent ships and benefiting us both. You played ten seasons in pittsburgh. That's what you broke in that. That was an interesting team to me that old pirates team because there was nothing but black and brown players on that team and you guys were bad boys and i mean in a good way. Tell me about that experience playing for the pirates from seventy three to eighty three. Well name was a great experience. Now you play with guys up cutler for one and you play the guys that do everything on the field including the kitchen sink. There's players that when be denied and their teammates. That's what at the title is what it is and i. It was just a thrilled to play. One of you. Also played in cincinnati reds from eighty four to eighty seven. What was cincinnati is.

"Is the legislative council for gun owners of america. Mike let's start with Let's start with what system. What about the system works when you look at gun. Regulations are there any provision of the gun regulations. That you say that keeps us safe. That's a good thing. The only thing that i think is good is basically regulations which allow Good people to carry firearms for the defense of themselves and their families and their communities. We have seen Efforts to ban guns by calling something no guns zone calling something and no guns zone never ever ever makes it no gun zone. What it means is that there probably are going to be fewer or no good people Who will have guns in that situation who can fire back if trouble arises but if look at the history of mass shooting sense since columbine as a matter of fact you learn a couple of interesting things. One of them is virtually every single one. I can think of one one exception. Virtually every single one occurred in a place in which guns were absolutely prohibited. What did that do that said to the shooter whose intention was to get his fifteen minutes of fame that set to the shooter. You can come in. You can shoot up this location. You can kill everyone and there is much less of a chance that is going to shorten your fifteen minutes of fame by firing back so i think that by and large trying to keep Individuals safe by limiting their ability to have guns into use. Guns has been a remarkable failure in the history of the government regulation. And that's saying quite mike. There is a lot of information bandied about by reporters who've never held a gun much less shot one. They use terms like assault weapon They use terms that are inaccurate. Sometimes that are made up out of whole cloth but as you noted with the use of a ghost gun that are designed to to alter people's opinions. What are some of the myths that that float around out there. And what are the facts. What people need to know when they watch this conversation in this debate being had the big myth is a gun. Control makes you safe if you and i get a lot this a lot while. I'm talking on places. Like bbc in london they say. Oh america's dangerous bunch of cowboys Well first thing is. There are parts of america where the which. We're very dangerous. Where where. I wouldn't wanna be walking alone particularly at night By and large los angeles san francisco chicago. Baltimore new york The one thing that characterizes them is that they have complete and total gun control in some cases guns in civilian hands or effectively banned and the more guns are regulated and banned the more dangerous it gets on my home state of new hampshire. My stopped state of new hampshire You has virtually no limitations on guns. Aw does main as vermont as north dakota and so and so forth. You're much more likely to be killed by a moose in new hampshire. Then you are by a firearm. So the regulation. Yeah yeah well. We shoot them When we can But yeah the you need to go after them mussa's because They it's dangerous so other myths. You know we. We hear references to. Let's say the gun. Show loophole. what he said. Yeah the gun. Show loophole that's That's a lie. actually We used to a gun. Owners of new hampshire of which i was executive vice president at a time used to hold gun shows and the one thing about our gun shows. Was that the people who buy large sell guns gun. Shows or at least who had tables were registered Federal firearms licensees. Which means that if you bought a gun from them you had to get a brady check. Occasionally people would walk down the aisle with a gun on their shoulder and a little flag with the price. Sticking out of the barrel to my knowledge that has never been a problem but overwhelmingly the guns purchased at gun. Shows are regulated in the same way that guns purchased a dealer are. What are the other myths Here this term assault rival tell people are solved ally. it's it's an inaccurate term that cannot be defined. we learned that during bill clinton's first term Beginning in nineteen ninety-three in the ninety four. Act which by the way the house in in the ninety four elections. Yeah that's that's the big lie. Is that Gun control is politically advantageous. If you look at all the major efforts gun control in recent history. The gun control in nineteen ninety-four essentially cost democrats house for the first time an generation. I mean that had the house for thirty or forty years. It switch control to the republicans for the first time in a generation and it stayed there as a result of their efforts. Outlaw semi-automatics i. I won't call them assault rifles because they're not a full automatic. Firearm might be an assault rifle but a semi automatic certainly isn't accept it may be cosmetically similar to another gun but In two thousand immediately after columbine you remember that was supposed to be the tipping point in american history which was going to usher in major era of control. I was around. Then as a matter of fact We succeeded in killing every word of gun. Control every word. Footballing combine notwithstanding that mass hysteria the less succeeded in generating. Guess what happened electorally. George bush won the white house and he won the white house because west virginia kentucky. Tennessee arkansas in the florida panhandle more-or-less permanently flipped as a result of the gun issue And twenty thirteen after newtown. Oh barack obama said i'm we've reached a tipping point and i'm now going to Basically implement major gun control. We killed every single word of gun control after newtown and was the resolve that we killed it in the united states senate and the senate in the next elections wept from democrat to republican. So i think that may be the biggest Mistake which certainly the left makes. Perhaps many americans make that gun. Control makes good politics in fact it doesn't make good politics and if you look at the Nineteen nine four semi mak-ban at the if a decade when it was allowed to expire the fbi. Did a study they determined. It had absolutely no impact on crime. One mike cameron legislative council for gun owners of america. Thanks for being with us has bill. Thank you good night..

"Gun owners of america general counsel legislative council. Sorry mike hammond is our guest mike. The let's start with the executive actions by joe biden today. What exactly is he planning to do as far as you understand. It's gone stark raving crazy. I mean we we. We didn't expect sanity coming out of joe biden But he's responded to He's responded to boulder supposedly in a way that is completely counterproductive. Oh let's start out with a fundamental fact. The reason boulder happened was that gabby giffords man a decade trying to get kroger who owns The king super supermarkets to Post no gun zone signed and so when the killer came into the king's super in boulder he knew that he could shoot up the place even though there's a fifty one year old policeman there And that no one was going to shoot back which presumably motivated him to do what he did. So what is biden doing to gabby giffords exchange for You know wake causing this Whole mess The answer is he's giving her the opportunity to select the head of the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms. A guy named david schiffman. Whose an associate the giffords organization being nominated to head the organization. And if you look at some of his conspiracy theories with respect to waco he just completely nuts so That's the thing one. We're boarding gifford's for boulder by naming their guy had be. Ats second thing is they are presumably going to do some sort of as yet undefined Way to support these red flag gun confiscation rates. You may know what these are Texas considered them and rapidly shelved the idea What happens the as someone who dislikes you and and a family. There are lots of people who may dislike you. Drop a dime call. A judge make unsubstantiated allegations that you're somehow dangerous and the next thing without any proof whatsoever backup. The next thing that happens is a swat. Team is at your house in the middle of the night to Rampage your House now we have seen the way this works in practice. In ferndale maryland gerri willis a sixty two year. Old black man had a red flag raid on his house at five seventeen am in the end because he seemed to resist a little He was shot to death so maryland. -ironically had just band capital punishment so it appears that being a law abiding gun. Owner is the only capital crime left in maryland and addition Biden has indicated that he is going to regulate pistol braces as presumably short barreled rifles. Which means that. An inanimate piece of plastic all of a sudden becomes the same for purposes of federal law as a machine gun Gun owners of america has just litigated that with respect to bump stocks and the six circuit court of appeals has ruled that no a piece of plastic is not a machine gun so be interesting to see whether he can get away with that or not and filing these gun kits which people bought with be. Ats encouragement for decades. Put together own guns Are being Suddenly a regulated as firearms in one way or another now the To my knowledge there has never been a case of a homemade gun which has been used in a significant crime or for my from my knowledge any crime at all and what is is just the way the flavor of the month from the gun. Control lobby They that regulating quote ghost guns will make people happy because ghosts are big and scary and calling a homemade guns ghost guns Give people the impression that they're accomplishing something. So it's a whole bunch of Including some pretty scary stuff. Which biden is doing Most of it is probably illegal or unconstitutional. Casper the friendly ghost Well I guess there are friendly ghost. But i think win the other side call Homemade guns ghost gone The intention is not to get you to like them. Ask point you know you made the point that to your knowledge. There's not been a major crime committed with guns when you you look at. Where are you look at. Where the shooter this what nobody wants to talk about. Most of the shootings that occur in this country are inner city black on black. Yes gang or drug or both related. These are not criminal enterprises that are sophisticated enough to make their own guns. Anyway they got plenty of guns as it is they steal guns when they want and in every case to my knowledge which of gun violence in the south side of chicago in the air in baltimore and places like that to my knowledge in every case these people get their guns illegally off the street off the black market. They don't get them from a gun store and go through a gun check. They don't Basically make their own guns. They get them illegally from black market I mean it's the same thing with semi max which the other side is trying to demonize but fewer than one percent of all crimes involve semi automatics. It's not a question of safety. It's a question of scaring people by Cosmetic and if the other side can come up with a word picture that makes you think the guns are scarier than they are for instance. I as salt. Rifle is the the premier example that i was in the army I was stationed at fort meade maryland. I was issued an assault rifle and the reason it was an assault rifle was. It was a fully automatic firearm. Or at least it could be fired fully automatic You can pull the trigger once and it will fire more than one bullet. And that's why it was assault rifle this notion that Things which cosmetically look like that or somehow dangerous or.

"Well many people friends of mine. Tell me that at fifty years old. I m fifty going on eighty and that i am stuck in the nineteen seventy eight to nineteen eighty years of my favorite sports figures products. You name it. Whether it's dan passerini and earl campbell or jose cruz and nolan ryan the nineteen seventy nine. We are family Pittsburgh pirates team. And what an honor to have former national league most valuable player to time batting champion nineteen seasons in the major leagues. Seven time all star three gold gloves three silver slugger awards. Nineteen seventy-nine all star. Mvp two world series champion teams and the first multi. Sorry the first million dollar per year player and the author of the new book cobra a life of baseball and brotherhood the legendary dave parker on our show. What an honor sir. Thank you thank you so there's been a lot said about you. Why did you to tell your story in your own words. Written and things Made up of dave parker individually and the ball player. And i thought it was time and i said some light on myself. What sorts of things are we gonna learn in the book about you that we didn't know already well the fellowship and then accelerated with so many players. You know. A lot of young players davis bay larkin. Gay said feel jose canseco. Magui these guys. I had some input on their careers and the mothership kid way beyond the ball car. I mean when when way to their homes and they would call me doing christmas. Call me on occasions. And that was something i wanted to reflect that kind of Fellowship in your. You got to know roberto clemente my mind. One of the most fascinating figures in one of the first truly in national figures in in baseball. What are you definitely the greatest He helped me out a lot. I san catcher. And i use to short on the ball and never take about ten to twenty miles my girls. And he's telling me how to reach back. So he was instrumental to me being outfitted. It became and he was true the greatest because he's a new stuff slide on the ball pop up and those bullets to third base and He he was titled the greatest. And i agree. He was the greatest. What i read about the book is that willie stargell was one of your big brothers. Talk to me about how he took you under his wing and and what that meant to you. Willie was University of personality. If you like willie you can like anybody. He was just one of those guys that you grew on you when you first met him and He was a leader. You know You got leader. Chuck kinda jointly. Let club to a world championship. Well we claim him as our own now. And i know that he's a friend of yours and it was non-stop jawing with you. It is sort of a brother figure in favorite foil phil garner. Who's houstonians. What are what are your thoughts on on that man. It was Clubhouse lawyer We'd saw every day and we used to put on a show. We have guys come to stadium. Two and three is early just so they watch me and feel arguing with each other so filled with mental too that the leadership to the monitored everything that took place in the clubhouse you were a cincinnati kid. Dave parker grew up less than a block from the reds crossley field. And you had some legendary games and the legendary robbery with pete rose and the big red machine and he writes one of the intros two to one of the chapters. Talk about that relationship. You and pete rose people three oh to play against you know because he played all out at one hundred of the time and i dive with something that people identified to pete rose as been got hit. I di- i. I was thrilled to play against him and even with three other players wedding. 'cause he plays gang mike and shouldn't be played and i respected that. I'm glad to see in reading about the book that you talk about my dear friend in houston's own jr richard and what happened to him because it's a tragic story of of a wonderful man great guy and Definitely the toughest pitching in baseball days doing about one hundred and three hundred and five miles an hour and He was no joe. And i think he was conveniently while when he wanted to dig in jr to too much. You talk in the book about excruciating knee pain. That told you that. Look you're not gonna get to play forever. Are you in a lot of pain today. No i have good days and bad days. And fortunately mostly good days. And i'm used to dealing with because i've been going to fame years And just take come play the hand and still you talk about the moment willie. Stargell came to be known as pops whenever me calling him. Pop i kind of concerted the the nickname and He lived up to because he was the elder statesman and He was accustomed to leaning and people were accustomed column. How's the game different today. Dave parker than it was when you played a lot store and not fundamentally sound is I got ask day. Meeting make mistakes would cut off and we moved to run over in behind another These are things you know. See now everybody's trying to leave the yard kinda hit home run. I was a kid when you're at your prime and we we worship sports figures back then especially as a kid because they were older but it doesn't appear that there are the personalities in the game today the way they were during your era and we've mentioned just a few of those in there so many more. Why do you think that is well. And i think it's The money it's more of a business and people dylan outside businesses and kind of forget about the fan and I've seen guys come into the clubhouse twenty five guys go twenty five separate ways and that's.

"Was first chief Ever to be nominated from outside the ranks And so you know the. That caused some consternation. I think justifiably so but as time went by I think i was out there more. I was very clear in my support of president trump's policies in gender and the way that he looked at border security and the importance of addressing illegal immigration. And i think that we we came to that. We actually mutually agreed on just about every single of border security immigration policy. That was out there right now and and You know then. They say the rest of the history. What would be the single most important move. The biden administration could make not that they will that would stem this tide. Mpp the migrant protection protocol or most people know at the remain in mexico. Look we what we have to do to stem. illegal immigration is reduced incentives and try to close the loopholes that are contained in our broken immigration system. And one of the great pull boxers or incentives. Is that people coming to our borders. right if you a family are unaccompanied minor you are released into the interior united states. Because of a series of courtney sessions and loopholes in our system. What that is really what drove the crisis in two thousand and eighteen. If your family you make charge border you were released into united states. Never be heard from again right. It was ali uncomfortable. We closed that down in large part. Now there's a network of policies in tools initiatives but but the single one that i would say if the president's spoke to me was you need to reinstate remained in mexico program. That was a game changer. That was what led us to in catch-and-release sent guts or borders to be released to united states. They still went through the process. They were standing mexico while they went through the saddam. Poss- who are these people are they primarily just terribly poor people without education or certifications that want to come here and pick up trash and work in the kitchen at. What does this look like undeniably and this is very important. Because a lot of the american people they get their kind of emotional ideology confused with what actual wall is the overwhelming majority of people illegally entering our borders along the southwest border are weaver to economic migrants. They're just looking for a better life you just said they're looking for a job better car better home better paying job and i got it but guess what that's not a ballot asylum claim. And that's what people don't understand. Is that the law is very clear on the side of them. It's hard to get as it should be hard to get the state sponsored persecution for you participating in a protected group or class so coming and saying. Hey i'm just looking for a better job is not about asylum. Claims that's why the majority of these people are not legally coming to our ports of entry. 'cause they know they don't have a balanced that's why they're illegally entering and the. Here's here's say this tuna shut up from this question. But and this is where i get a lot of hate mail but the fact is the majority of them are uneducated unskilled. Don't speak the language and lack of really strong familiar connection here in the united states That's a challenge. Once they enter the country there is an organization called fair. It is the federation for american immigration reform. I've gone to their event every year. They do a radio row and they really try to bring national attention through talk show hosts to what's going on and they make a lot of great guests available and i will say this probably not a single organization that is doing more to bring attention to this and and and work toward good then. Fair and mark. Morgan is now a senior fellow there because they understand. He has a voice experience to talk about these things. He's the former commissioner of us customs and border protection mark. I want to ask you to to really dig a little deeper. You were earlier talking about asylum seekers in how we are now referring to these individuals as being asylum seekers in asylum protection was originally for a christians in iran people who were persecuted because of their religion or their particular situation and we would give them asylum here. But that's not what this is these are. These are just folks in a poor country and any other country you can have folks from ethiopia or uganda or botswana or mozambique or anywhere else. That if they could get here would get in under the same terms that just from a poor country in. That doesn't qualify does it. That's exactly right and that's one of the pieces of misinformation and false narrative. That's out there that people just don't fully understand and i don't blame him because you know this administration open border. Advocates are intentionally confusing the issue. That's exactly right look. It's abuse the system. The overwhelming majority of people come in a find. A communist island do not qualify for asylum. They're not victims of state-sponsored government sponsored persecution for being a member of protected class. Right you know seeking a better job is not valid asylum. Point there look. It's not complicated when we were briefed president trump and we said hey look we the overwhelming majority of people come in here. They don't have valid claims there margaret but letting them in the country and then you're staying here forever and he goes well that doesn't make sense. We're like yeah it doesn't make sense. And so that's why we developed the network compulsive like mpp that means that sent up once. We started making a return to mexico as they went through their process. The united states. You sell the numbers drastically go down because they no longer can abuse and exploit the system. Now this administration has reversed all of that they re incentivize that they've removed that ability To remove them to mexico and now. Receiving numbers skyrocket when joe biden had won the election. But not yet been sworn in. He started giving speeches. And and basically welcoming folks to come up and if your children arrive here. We'll be very kind to them. Which of course induced folks to to do more of that provided an incentive to send your kid. This was the moment the first hundred days when you're the c. Bp director where do you get your direction like the president cia. He just changed policy. At that moment. You have to interpret what the administration's policy is and communicate that down through your chain. What does that look like is. Is it a daily memo. No it's not a daily member. But i'll tell you it's tough. I mean anytime. there's a transition. So i was still there you know after the election you know in in by one. Obviously he started his rhetoric right away and the you know the the migrants had already started coming before. Go watch it hoping abide win. We you know we we call it. The trump effect when the numbers went down and with biden. We call the numbers going up but especially after the election. We start seeing numbers. Go up right because they just a matter of time january take over and open the boers victory. He said he would do and he stopped. That's talked because now you gotta start communicating to the workforce that that Were we know what's coming. We know good crisis is coming if they do so. We're scrambling around to try to educate the biden administration transition team to not do what they say they're going to do to prevent the crisis from coming at the same time. We got to prepare the workforce for the crisis comey that challenging so A lot lot lot lot of discussions A lot of a telephone conference calls and and directions to prepare all the above mark. Morgan thank you for your service to the country and thank you for being willing to speak.

"Great show for you today. We're going to start with the george floyd case and why it's not exactly going out on a limb to say show van. The officer in minneapolis based on the evidence should not be convicted. Should not be convicted. We're talking about that. We're going to talk to the former head of border protection under both obama and trump and how concerned he is about. What's going on. We're gonna talk to hall of fame. Legend dave parker seventy nine pittsburgh pirates. We are family team and so many more. He's gonna talk about some of the greats he played with has a new book out called colebrook where she's nickname. And we're gonna talk about joe biden's executive orders on guns all that more coming up. Let's get started. You know shortly. After the george floyd video went public and the riot started in the media coverage started. It was hard to find anybody. I started calling police officers union directors in different folks around the country that are very pro law enforcement and i couldn't get any of them to come out and say well you know this. Gas being railroaded. Everyone thought open and shut case police brutality. Terrible thing well. As is often the case there was more to the story than originally met the eye. And does that mean that i think show van is great officer and he was following procedure. Start to finish in. He deserves a commendation for his. No but that's a long way from a murder conviction. Which is what they're going for. Which is over. Classic prosecutorial reach. It's it's it is. It is exhibit a in what you don't do go for what you can get. Don't overreach and fail but anyway so much coverage there were there were riots. There was a famous people coming out. george floyd was made into a saint and i thought all the while something about this. There's got to be more so show van could've taken a plea presumably in not gone to trial and we wouldn't know a lot of what we've since learned and what we have since learned as part of his defense counsels presentation cuts against that case it cuts against it to such an extent that someone i respect who publishes publicly will chamberlain who has himself lawyers a co publisher of human events. He's a senior counsel at the internet accountability project in the article. Three project posted earlier today. Which caught my attention. Derek chauvin will be acquitted. Why the trial. On george floyd's death is going so poorly for the prosecution will. That's a strong statement. Derek chauvin will be acquitted. Why do you say that I think there's just some really big problems with the way that the prosecution presented its case. And it's gonna lead to the jury having reasonable doubt both on the question of causation whether derek chauvin actually caused george floyd staff and also on essentially whether chauvin was either negligence or you know had essentially necessary intent to commit murder And i think you know basically within happening for about two weeks you've had prosecution. The prosecutor putting on its witnesses and the defense actually scoring more points and extracting real value out of their own questioning more so than the prosecution has been. That's really bizarre for criminal trial where normally the prosecution's case is open shot in the defense is just trying desperately to find some window This has been very different than that. The prosecution said a lot more trouble getting its version of events. clear and the defense has been consistently Getting scoring points talk witnesses. Talk about some of the facts that the defense have presented that you feel like cut in their favor so i think one one big one is that you have you know. There's a lot of good justification by the defense and using prosecution. Witnesses that using force against floyd under the circumstances was justified and that a lot of force was justified. So for example the prosecution expert witness the guy who from the led who does use of force training and at one point the defense counsel washing through the initial call. You know why why. Why did she and get to the scene well. Two officers are trying to restrain restraint. A large suspect six three or or bigger. They were having trouble doing so. And there was some suspicion that the guy was high on drugs and and the defense counsel asked the prosecution's expert witness. You know the guy who was supposed to be the prosecution favorite person. Yes and it's like under the circumstances would have been justified in simply using teaser to stop the suspects resistance upon arriving at the scene and the expert was like yes. And so that would be a de-escalation. Yes i mean that was. That's one example of how you know the the experts and most of the witnesses actually works for the defense. There's also the fact that you know. We learned that mr floyd heading overdose like about a year ago had to go to the hospital for it and that his girlfriend describing the overdose describes a number of symptoms that we were seeing on video the foaming at the mouth. The the frantic breathing so you have you know on the one hand people explaining you know y- the prosecution zone experts at justifying some to some degree why a significant use of force against floyd was was good police practice and then on the other hand you have this serious theory of khazei which is the guiding otas and otis and not being choked out. Well there's doesn't matter even if Vince behavior was against procedure or negligent. Or even even beyond that. It's still wouldn't be enough to justify murder conviction where you have to prove every element of the crime. The unreasonable doubt. What about what do you make of the audio. Which sounds like him saying. I ate too many drugs. I think pretty compelling. I and i know that can be exactly to make out what he's saying. You know you can hear it in different ways. But here's here's the problem. Found in the back of the squad car this testimony yesterday. We're pills with a mean in them. And some federal. If i recall correctly in also george floyd saliva on them. So it's hard not to think he was eating in spitting out tills in the back of the squad car so even if he didn't actually say h many pill there's physical evidence that suggests that's precisely what he was doing just moments earlier That's that's a real problem for prosecution that has to completely rule out the possibility that it was a drug overdose And also completely demonstrate that the behavior of the officers was so unreasonable to be criminal Under the circumstances i mean. There's there's a very good argument. Simply put the they thought mr floyd was about to go through excited delirium and that for the safety of himself needed a restraint. Hold on on the ground So that's that's another another issue if you were rating the quality of presentation. i mean. they can't help the case they have but the job they're doing this particular prosecutorial team. What would you say about that. It doesn't get more than a six. The problem is i think. There's too many chefs in the kitchen. And as a result they're having trouble getting their story straight So today you know. They're actually putting on one of their strongest witnesses that i've seen. Which is mr dr tobin their medical expert who is testifying as to how floyd died of you of a six year and a lot of the interesting thing is that much of copen. Testimony forces focuses on the fact not of the knee on the neck but rather that the fact that he was being to the ground by the officers was restricting his ability to breathe and that a lot of fluids behavior was trying to kinda lift himself up a little bit get some space for his chess. Oh his chest could expand. That's really interesting. I can see how you know that makes a little more sense given the nature of the video. That's what's cognate breathing issues. And not the knee on top of the neck right from the from behind But the problem is that that's not anything that's been focused on at all. In terms of what the what. The prosecution focused on as a use of excessive force right. The excessive forces supposed to be just a knee on the neck. It's not supposed to be the fact that they were restraining him on the ground. I mean as far as i didn't think the prosecution expert at all talked about the fact that he was being tend to the ground. So that's proper police practice. That's a huge problem And so i feel like they're just not the processing teams and communicating with one another. They're not all on the scene. And you compare that to the defense which has just the one lawyer who even doesn't seem like he's.

"Go I'm not gonna argue with that it is causing. Certainly a change in the game there's no way that baseball can't recognize that that it's becoming a problem that they have to. Understand that it's becoming a problem it doesn't seem to me. Like anybody's doing anything about? It you know, what I mean so I mean they're. Not Rodman donate anything about it so it's just a strategy thing now in. This? Day and age of baseball right it's changed the game. And it's the way it is the one thing that I think I would agree, with you that it's an annoying but I think that it's become such a thing, analytics and, the shift have Really. I think done damage to the game I think that there is nothing more aggravating, to me than this exit velocity and stuff like that nonsense it's real simple In baseball going back in time to. When I was a, kid let's say in the seventies and eighties. Right let's go. Back then there's no difference in my opinion I think the the balls more juiced I think you know bats are probably made differently. A little bit I would guess I think that I'd be willing. To? Bet Louisville slugger would admit that the bats had changed the would the way they may come it's different than the lumber they, were. Using back in the day right, but you cannot tell me that Willie. Stargell or Dave Parker hitting a home run or Dade Kingman or any of the grey Aaron you cannot. Tell me that Even going back all the way back Babe Ruth and others whether it was Maki mantle or whoever right Joe DiMaggio it doesn't matter to me a home runs a, home run I don't get that what that is the most ridiculous stat I've ever seen in my life the is that the speed of the ball leaving the. Ball the bat and, leaving the leading the field of play I mean is that not the most ridiculous, thing you've ever seen in your life, like? Anyone gives a. Rat's. Ass about that. All I know. Is album runs a home run whether. It's going out faster, whether it's going out high or whether it's. Barely going over. The wall or whether it's hitting the foul pole or whether it's going in the upper deck or in the lower dagger in the. Bleachers or in the monument park or whether it's going into the. Fountain? Or whether it's splashing into the pool or into the rocks or wherever it goes out of the stadium for Christ's eggs Wrigley, field. Even a that's probably impossible Anymore these days but is there anything more annoying than. Some baseball, broadcaster trying to put a speed on it the exit velocity it's this? Stuff is so bad it's just so dumb? It makes no sense to me at all it, really doesn't I don't get, it like is not just a home run who gives a rat's ass how fast it goes out of the park I mean isn't that a home run leaving the bad going out of the park the same thing since I, was a little kid that's home Ryan that's what it is I think in my life I ever one stop boy that ball's going one hundred and four miles. An hour how stupid, dumb.
