Uh, to be first of all your wine. I'm in spring training. Obviously, I mean rags is just like the quad highest quality individual you could ever imagine. He was a starter to begin his career threw a no hitter was a Short reliever, one of the best left handed closers in the history of baseball, So he did every single roll who is such a great pitching coach? And Sean, You know, just overall, I Tremendous. What a great infielder. He was what a great army had and being around him. He's just too smart baseball guy. You know he would run the video. For both for many, many years, So at some point, we got to get all three of them on the air.

He's very high on What they're going to be like when they get to the major league level. And I also wonder where you know where Joey Barton's gonna be. This year to start the year. You gotta have a triple A team. Are you gonna have San Jose Giants and the K League? Are you gonna combine? You know both of them and play somewhere, maybe distance sack or maybe in San Jose to keep him closer.

"Got this first tonight. I think he was killed like a locker. Michael. Bill, do I have to do These nice guys never got to say it. But man, well, his S O. He is three high scoring games and in his career 62 against Portland on January the third they won that game. The game Saturday. They lost that game, and the other one is famous. The first won his first real coming out party was the studio 54 game at Madison Square Garden. They lost that game, so three of his top highest scoring figures, they've lost two of them. But generally when he goes off like this, they lose, so they they win the game. This one and they got off to a terrible start. They were down 18 to 2 in the first five minutes of the game and stuff came out slow. He missed four of his first five and I think that That, really they were kind of playing up fill the entire night. They did take a lead in 96 95 late in the third quarter. But that's it. They were down the whole night and his shot making, um Kept him in the game. Rick Carlisle's really good offensive coach. I don't know what he was doing. A Zafar is going to get him. I think pop tonight and I don't think LaMarcus Aldridge is gonna play tonight. So who have a little swifter Lineup as LaMarcus Aldridge is just low, slow and lumbering. Um Ah. So I think they'll be more locked in. Um but I just he just his shot making that night that he went for 62 against poor that it was his driving. There was incredible in that game in this game. It was a classic step three game 11 of 19. His second quarter was as good as he's bad. Now we've seen him go for 17 and over time five minutes, so he's been better. But he didn't miss a shot. He only played six minutes and 55 seconds of the second quarter because he plays the whole first quarter and then takes the first half of the second quarter off, so he only played seven minutes roughly, and he scored 19 points. Made all five of his threes, including the logo shot. Each took one stride across mid court. He took a logo shot and we had a shot of them warming up before the game. He made five in a row. Go on the other basket, but still logo shot, So it's these are all things he's been practicing for years and When he's allowed to roam the way it was on Saturday night. He could go off and just have a game like this, so Now the question is, and we were talking about on the post game, and Steve Kerr was asked about. I think Anthony Slater asked him and he said, Yes, this is the best he's ever seen Steph Curry, and that's the guy that average 30 a game made 402 threes. The 73 9 season got every single first place vote. For EVP, which no one has gotten and I wholeheartedly agree. That was a 73. When team you had Harrison Barnes on that team. You had clay on that team. You dream on on that team, your good players on that team. Dream on's playing. None of the other guys, including Kevin Durant are and he's playing. You know, the numbers may show in some categories, shooting that he's better back then, but he's overall game and his ability to defend and the strength of what he's doing. I don't know what his peak is going to hit. Maybe it's 34. Maybe it's 35. But right now in his early thirties, John and he's gonna have what is 33rd birthday coming up in March. I think he's He still ascending. He is still getting better is a player now in like you said. They didn't play great defense on him, but still he's always the Center of attention for the defense and to do what he did. He had 30 in the first half 27 in the second half. It was fun to watch him against Luca Luca tied his career high with 42. We had 11 assists. Seven boards of those two were going at it. Back and forth What continues to dog the Warriors without having any Biggs Second chance points. 17 8 15 offensive rebounds, So the lack of size is is hurting the warrior's Draymond green by the way, 15 assists in that game. He did have seven turnovers but had four block shots and six deals as well. So even though he's not scoring, he didn't have a field goal. He did it to free throws. He's he's contributing in every other way. He was good. He had back to back 15 assists games, which I think in the history of the game, and the Joker may get there. One day Yokich and well, it was different. But it reminds, you know, he's playing center is not jumping center to open the game, but he was playing under sized five, so it's kind of more the power forward that is forced to play. Position this basketball. So what does it matter, but no centers ever had 15 assists? I'm sure in back to back games the difference in this game versus the game Thursday in Dallas when they won in that game, the one they wanted one turnover. He had seven turnovers on Saturday. And it's not just the lack of size and obviously, you know, Eric Paschal doesn't play on top of No Wiseman on top of no coven on top of No marquees, Chris This is not a good rebounding team. They they were not a good rebounding team. Wiseman's got to be a better rebounder. Raymond is not a good rebounder. Well, you know, I always compare him to Rodman. Rodman became Rodman's a great rebounder whose defense I thought fell off later in his career because he wasn't worried about guarding. The guy anymore. He wanted to leave and go get them a shot because that's you know, he wanted to leave the rebounding every year. I think it's the same for dream on a little bit like it is for clay. It's hard for claimed, by the way its place birthday today. Yeah, plays 31 today. It's hard for clay to guard the shooter and also get to miss shot. No, it's hard to do that. So I'm gonna cut dream on some slack on that where you know he's out, and he's switching and he's all over the place. But he's not a great rebounder there rebounds that air in his vicinity. That's the one thing that Draymond Green is just not a lead at And it hasn't gotten better. Um We got news on the Giants here anyway, So I mean, they were not a good rebounding TV when they had size, so they That's one thing, you know, but it's hard for Draymond when he's guarding the shooter. Aldridge won't play tonight, so we'll have to see who he matches up with. Um, but is she? She's for a guy. You know it's activity normally is strange Dream and I would say is a below average rebounder. No doubt but fun to watch stuff for the weekend gets 57. They've got the Spurs tonight. So hopefully they can get on that one. By the way, just shot this over two years. We're hopefully continue to be on time. Haven't heard anything else. As far as the Giants Sean Dunstan Dave Righetti are going to be minor league spring instructors also our pal Pat Burl. He was gonna be good. Santa's a hitting coach and 2020. He's going to be the roving hitting in structure instructor instructor So he's gonna be of throughout the entire minor league system, not just in San Jose. Great and.

"Who's the three time all start and on base 3, 60 guy and just really a good player. A good guy with the Cardinals, and he's got one year left on his deal. They brought him out of a million bucks. I think they said about $11.5 million after what? What the hell that we're seeing. We're seeing across the board. I mean, all he is in the major leagues to the minor leagues. I mean, you got free agents all over the place, and it has everything to do with it. With next year. Nobody knows what's gonna happen. Nobody has any idea what to expect. They're They're hoping we get a full spring training. We're hoping to get a full season, but there are no guarantees and it gets back down to, you know. Cutting your losses and because of that the free agent world is just going to be. It's like nothing we've ever seen before, and it has everything to do with covert. I think that you know the issue two years ago was the guy's starting to cut down. They're free agency acquisitions and their pursuits, and the players Association was pretty upset about it, which lead all of us to believe that going into this next year's basic agreement. Renegotiation. That's next December. Ah, that it was going to be scary and they really threatened it. It would be another work Stop. It's something we hadn't seen since 1990 for which we didn't think we'd ever seen again, or we would ever see again. But I think this court covert has done to this to this industry. It completely leaves. The old controversy in the dust, and I really don't know what to expect, either. If I was a free agent right now, I'd be cutting a deal. Any deal I could, and I think that is the winner wears on. You're going to see more and more guys do go to a one year deal. Go to a one year deal and take a discount just to have a job. Because jobs they're gonna be threatened. And that has everything to do with covert tough deal. And, uh yeah, two says here Long, Cold winter for free agents being predicted here, so ah! Definitely something we're going to be following a zit goes along, so Hey, Mike, also just wanted noted anti Bagley reported this. I hadn't known until he reported it that in this giant's cost cutting move, which A lot of teams have done it. They're not the only ones. It's so tough to see 50 different employees who were terminated by the Giants, and nobody was sad. We didn't really know who until we found out from Andy Bagley that two of the names included Shawn Johnston and Dave Righetti, and it's like Wow, just kind of put you in a place you know, and in a time when you'd like to see those guys around the ballpark and see him in the dugout around the cage, and I know times change and things change, but Just if you had a chance to kind offer your thoughts and what those guys gave to the organization forever. I mean, these are some great names, particularly Righetti being the pitching coach for three World Series champs. And then Dunstan being on the staff for Butchie all those years. What was your what? Your thoughts. Heartbreaking, completely heartbreaking and and people that we've known for 25 30 years in the front office that were let go. It just heartbreaking. Absolutely. And it just gives you an idea of the impact that the Kobe has had on organizations having to make these decisions easier, just gut wrenching decisions and I know the affected they had on the people that had to make these decisions and have these conversations. It just was torture for him. And, uh, you know, it's just awful. What's happened here to our to our industry here in the last year, and you know what We don't know where it's going to go. There are no guarantees. I think that most of the budgets that air going in the next year are based on organizations being able to bring back you know 25 to 50% of the fans to stance. I don't know what's gonna happen if that doesn't happen. I don't know, but there'll be more cuts. You know they have to their face with the idea of and the responsibility of having to run a business and business is his decisions as you know, are extremely difficult, but to watch good people like that walk out the door. It's excruciating. It's brutal. Just the what you're done. Stian thought being around the ballpark, seeing him in the dugout and you guys shared. Of course, some Cubs history too, or at least parts of the Cubs organization just I don't know. I was that He was a great vibe. Anytime I saw Oh, yeah. I mean, he was upbeat. 100% energy mean He's one of those guys that has a player that was just huge energy walking in the clubhouse every day. Always happy, always ready to play. I was ready to compete, and he had a short fuse where he would go from happy You have to go lucky. Two massive red ass, which was fun because you always try to light the fuse everyday, right? It was funny. Eat wrap himself around whatever topic it didn't always have to be baseball. It could be football. It could be. It could be anything and you could get him gone. I mean, just a fun guy and true gamer. I mean, he played and And just saw it any way you could to help it. Organization help players grow, and then you don't get me started about David Getty. Oh, my God. One of my favorite people in the game that I've ever come across with one of the best storytellers. That I've ever been around and what he did to this organization. Now he elevated. The thing about the responsibility he was given with Cain and Bumgarner and Vogelsong and Lincecum, and he brought these guys into their he maximize their potential. And he gave them a base that made them not just great players, but great people and And great professionals. They became examples to everybody, not only unjust in the Giants organization, but every organization. To me. That is a total That is a total indication of what that pitching coaches like When you watch these guys live on the field as pros and live off the field as people that has everything to do with the pitching coach, and that's the type of impact that That Righetti had with two generations of pitchers coming through this organization and other players. Baber. Getty was one of those guys as a pitching coach affected players, not just pictures in that clubhouse. And, uh, you know, just to my favorite guys. Dustin and Ragetti. In what? I read it. I didn't know I didn't know this all went down until I read the Bagley article on Skype and I talked about it and It was just awful were sitting here, just shaking her head. It's really tough. I really like seeing those guys around. I mean, I know we didn't see rags as much last year, too, but the I'm with you on all those names, and it's just such a mean you know, Hey, things change. And as you said, boy economic times for everybody out there, it's just hard, so anyway. Just want to tell those guys were thinking of him and hopefully good things happen. Finally, Mike the Ah, the awards thing this is, you know, we've been around long enough to remember when they didn't do the three finalists. But Major League Baseball figured out a few years ago that They could get some excitement going by announcing three finalists for all their awards will be announced next Thursday, November 12th, But we go in l A. And we'll do the big ones here in L. A VP candidates Mookie Betts. Freddie Freeman, Manny Machado. You know it's a 60 game season, so it's totally different. But did you think one of those three guys had the best season? It's kind of funny because you never got to see Freeman right because he never got to play the Braves this year. I I think three worthy recipients. Every one of them have a great argument for it. But if I had to put money on it have between Mookie Betts of Freddie Freeman. I think you know Freddie Freeman, remember, he started out the season and he got smoked by Covitz. He was really scuffling. The Braves are really worried about him. And there was a while there. We didn't think that we'd see him. You know, maybe to the second half if at all. And what happened with him when he came in and anchored that line up, down and up? And put it over the top. I think he really was the difference in their season. I don't know if I could say that with Mookie Betts being the difference maker in that Dodger lineup. And because of that, I think I'd give the edge to Freeman..

"Awesome, but I got it. Text this morning with a picture of young BJ and it made my day absolutely, also said his brother passed away. You didn't die. He did. I know he was ill. That's why you're number 19 with the Giants and Dave Righetti was so gracious enough to Ah give up 19 and, you know, rags that was a number. Pitched a no hitter. So that is terrific news for Kevin, France, and he's a good guy. He actually I'm not going to say he's the driving force behind the name of this show, but we he was on Giants pre and post Game live. With us often in the early years. And we used to do it it What the hell was the name of that when it first opened the Acme Chophouse or 24 something? We were in there one night in the plumbing. Went bad. If you remember it was it was the audience couldn't see. But it was Jack Cousteau and 10,000 leagues under the sea, except I think I can't make it a joke that Ah, Dave Enger on our crew ordered the ultimate burrito which clubbed up may have been Bartolo cologne. Yes, anyway, and he was on that night and we were. It was so goofy. Man he did. He does the best Afternoon delight. Oh, yeah, he does it so well and I I shared it from him so many times off here, and I'll get him to do it on live TV, and it was just so funny. So when You and I got together. We named the show The afternoon delight years ago. He always that you still that for me and that really, I think Will Ferrell movie had some idea But anyway, so that's great news. He's a He's a good guy, a good father. And it's Philadelphia Phillies didn't quite make it, but ah lot of fun Baseball that yesterday for sure. Yeah, his brother battled cancer for 19 years he passed away. It's almost six. Well, just past the 16 year anniversary September 16 2000 foreign deejay was 25 so Freddy named his son after him today. 6 15 this morning, So it's just a cool. I don't know. That's why 19 was significant for him. Wow, exactly. I knew he was ill for a while. I didn't know. You know, I mean, years ago. That's great. So created after today, So I just want to get that going because it just made my dad a big smile on was texting with him, and he sent me a picture of him And it's just Wow, Is that cool man? And I'm Got a beautiful daughter, beautiful wife. But, man, you have a son to it. And as you know, both good and bad, But my advice is stop it one That was just my own. Is that his first child first son person? Yeah, he's got a beautiful daughter. I think she's four by now, something that but anyway cool moment this morning, All right, We got a lot to get to today. Greg Cosell is going to join us in about 55 0 minutes, and he's in Philadelphia. So he's always the perfect guy to talk to one of Friday, but especially today, will do. Eagles and Niners talk with him. And your Bagley extra bags with one last thought on the Giants in the Major League Baseball playoffs at 11 30. Manny Miyoko is going to join us 12 15 and a great interview that will do with our good friend. Guido the 40 Niners where we talk about Thie 40. Niners Giants can be our Dignity Health Mask initiative in which we're giving away hundreds of thousands of masks and by the way to get a mask came br dot com slash masks. We're gonna talk to al about it at 1 30. So there you go. Good for ended our boss. He's the desert in the 40 Niners and I don't love you know that he's from Philadelphia. He is his father and mother. Huge Eagle fans. So this game Well, it's so you know, they're all big and he's no longer working for Philly. He's a 40 Niner is a president a club, But you know this game is special for him a Sunday night Yeah. Man. What do you want to start of? You had all sorts of things you could. We could do a CZ Niners man MBA, Doc. It's a job when we left the air yesterday. Early on. At least we weren't overly optimistic and then the A's get some help from the White Sox. That catcher's interference if you walks there, and they come back, and they're going to take on the Astros in L. A Starting on Monday. Yeah. Yeah, and it was It was a riveting game. It took a long time, and I thought Bob Melvin really managed may be the best game that he's managed, released with the eggs. We didn't see him all the time in Seattle in Arizona, and he wants to National League manager of the Year Awards before. He arrived here, but his performance yesterday was just so on point. You know, Mike fires gave it up. They fell behind. I may have been a good thing that there weren't fans in there to start the gloom and doom and attention building in the age. You know Sean Murphy, right in the middle of our show hit that to run, Jimmy Jack and I think the new rule where you can't come in to face one batter, and I hope they do stop that role because I think it It's certainly decided the game yesterday aerated it, then I just don't think you should legislate the way AH, manager coach runs the game. There's other ways to speed up the process. But that was impactful. Hey, used eight pictures yesterday Heat. It was just incredible and started with fires and And I know you were critical of him. And he even though he gave up that forward in 87 ft homer to Robert, he did settle in and Snapped off a great curve ball. Ah, you know, change up low in the zone and a high fastball. He had his moments. But then he had a four pitch walk. And it was like, Ah! So I only got your five out. She's made up a cheat was good right away with the bases loaded to get a break you to ground out to Jake Lamott third, but then And you're probably all distracted by the profane, spewing center fielder of the A's Ramon Laureano laser. Take it easy, dude. But when fatigue because you don't get is when Petitt was on the mound and Ramon's going, you know, in the gap coming in and throwing out guys trying to throw out guys of the plate. A lot going on fatigue gave it up, but he just went right through a soul bullpen. It is the strength of the team, so I thought Bommel Really had an outstanding game. Then he went to Liam Hendriks and he, you know, he gave up a hit right away. But he did punch out the side and S so now they have a little time off to Ah! You get ready for Houston and will have high drama. Obviously with that, but I know people are freaking out about Ramon Laureano. And whether or not it's good or bad I reached out Tim Sullivan actually produced the ESPN. Broadcast, and it's fascinating the way they did this, and we know that flames and in Charlotte, North Carolina. What? Where's Jessica? She and her home somewhere else? Not she is anywhere near Charlotte. I don't know why they all go to Charlotte. But, um Tim Sullivan produced it from Bristol. Tommy adds a directed it from the truck here. In Oakland, and I work without Tommy Edsa does Asian warriors We started together in 1990. And Sully came on. You had Michael Ireland. We had David cop it we had..

"You can have And enjoy a wonderful meal. All right time to bring in one of our favorite guests, and I appreciate him on this July, the fourth that is Mark Simon of Sports Info Solutions as you know, Mark a, Simon says. Twitter. Mark, How are you on this? July 4th. Hi. I'm good. I just finished a bowl of ice cream looking for OK? Not too much. There was a president who had too much in the 1800 somewhere and that was the end of them. So That's a good boy. Just right. Not too much ice cream. All right, let's talk a little bit of baseball on that is we do have baseball coming up. The team is working out as we As we speak here at Oracle Park, and I'm just interested with you on all the things that you guys do it. Sports info solutions. What should we expect? What kind of a season should we expect for a Brandon Belt? Mikey Stransky or someone even big like a Nolan are Renato What should the season looked like 60 games for these guys? Yes, I think you have to kind of Kasserine is kind of in your head. Where does Bay Way tried to do that? This week? We do like a static. The week's newsletter and wait touch like where the leader should be like a guy hit 20 home runs this season. That's that's really, really good. Someone who could probably do it like Alonzo, could you it? Nolan Arenado could do it. But you know more than you might get a go a guy with more than 20 but you would finger that the legal leader is going to be in that like 18 19 range. We have to kind of keep that money hits. We're so used to, like 200 hits being this this major milestone, But now I think we have to think more in terms of like 75. Uh, kind of hit total assed being a more realistic one for a 60 AM season. The thing that's really throwing me off like trying to figure out wins because you probably know it's almost like they should Chuck the wind for good this year because having a Ah you guys that it started Patrick's 34 innings getting to your question on belt. So, you looking what Brandon did the last couple of years And I guess the good thing is, there's so many things we have to take into account here. One They in theory, but they should be very fresh in a month where the bullshit fly, so you would hope that he is going to hit his fair share of home runs. But what's going on? We're gonna be we're gonna be like 678 It's not gonna be like it's gonna be weird because he's not going to hit 15 my trophy to keep in mind with him. I think the projections for him Take a lot of his minor league stuff into account, and they think that he's going to be good this year as he was last year. They think that the league is going to catch up to him. So he If he doesn't hit 10 to 12 home runs that that could be why it's just difficult like it's. It's weird when you think about how this year is gonna look compared to all the other years in 1981 to kind of base it on. But this is considerably less in 1981. Sorry for the long answer. No, it's it's a great answer, because I know the listeners. They're putting some context now to the 60 game season into some numbers. I kind of think maybe the starting pitchers and maybe the veterans guys have been around a little bit more. We'll go those five innings and we'll take you to the third time through the lineup that bugaboo of the third time through the lineup. I have a feeling the veterans were goingto pitch a little bit more than than maybe the experts think. The shooters in the year. Cole's like the star dies, I would think that that's true. But there are a lot of teams like the Giants beyond Cueto and Marja. Cody and really air You really excited for anyone to pitch more than five innings? Probably not a good number of teams that have that kind of country. He might see yours or go like nine and two in this with Ah, Lo e R A. But I think he's gonna be. I think he could be the exception. More than More than the rule. Okay. What about a team record? You know, it's 60 games. Give me a record, they'd say, OK, you know, it may not look pretty, but actually, they had a pretty good year. Yes, I'm thinking about this from get three teams in the NL East perspective because I think the good division there is clearly stacked with good but not like super good teams and Like if my team if my fillings in the brain was 33 27 after 16. I'd probably be a little bits of pointed. But if you think about it, 33 27 converts to 89 wins. Which is a good year like you would feel at the end of the year. If you if you went 33 27 repeatedly you'd be dating nine would be pretty happy with your team's year from Nigerians. Perspective like it's funny because I think the swing for them is pretty great. You could see a scenario where the Giants could win. 2021 22 but it's 60 names and you have a good number of veterans on the team is quite against too smart to get to a certain post gets up to the certain belt, and Crawford and Longoria and all those guys. Maybe they go 31 in 29. It's the Giants are 31 29. I would think it would be in there. It will be considered a 1,000,000 a year for them. Yeah, you know, each year marked a Simon says on Twitter, Mark Simon of Sports Intra solutions with us Each year I looked at the 1st 62 games and I say Well, you'd like to, you know, get to 34 35 wins. If you can you feel really good. Because then you have 100 to go. Let's say you want 50 and 50. Well, you've already banked 35. So now you're at 85. Just going 500 So I like to see that number in the thirties. If you khun get their, uh then it takes pressure off for the second half, but that's how I look at it, but I understand the percentage and it's It's a good image for us 33 27. 89 wins, You could consider yourself in the playoff mix. That's pretty good. Hey, it is July 4th and George Steinbrenner's birthday and, of course, the one of the most famous no hitters. Dave Righetti pitched one on July 4th against the Red Sox, and I guess it's most famous for the last out of striking out Wade bugs. Yeah. Dave Righetti young pitcher at the time, very impressive in terms throughout his career, And I think those giants listeners would for not allowing homeruns which translated over to his work is pitching Coach. Certainly with the Giants. Hey allowed. Hey! He had Years in which here l like in his rookie year, he lived like one like 100 innings. The timorous that that was that strike out going back to the to the no hitter under 32 pitches, So he was at the The end of that line, I think in terms of pitches, and they said that the last pitch in particular was memorable because they thought for sure that onto into the pods will be expecting something else. Him a slider. You complete it really weak swing that way Bob took for strike Great, Good Red Sox lineup that you're facing that Taylor, a couple of guys robbing bad years, Boggs, Jim Rice and Dwight Evans to Hall of Famers and another. Very good puts Tony Armas. It's an impressive no hitter on certainly made more memorable by the day on which it was fabulous in the last picture of Dave Righetti, who we love getting Wade Boggs is that's that's the one that I'll remember forever.

"The San Francisco Giants now back to the giants pregame show with Artie. Laurie on KNB are six eight beautiful day for baseball today as we've got the Yankees in town. Take on the giants and British Jenkins will be with us live out at the patio at eleven thirty five today. Kevin Kernan of the New York Post will be out there with us eleven fifty today. So got double barreled action out of the public house. But you look at this Yonki giant dodgers coming in next. This is you know, for me growing up as a kid in Brooklyn. I mean, my whole youth is coming before me. And you know in these six days, you know, the Yankees giants and obviously dodgers. And this is what I grew up with. So there's a feeling every time I see the Yankees there really is. And you know, as I said growing up in Brooklyn, you if you're a dodger fan, you you know, that was the year of Jackie Robinson. And the boys of summer. You didn't really talk. Two giant fans. And you certainly certainly didn't have anything to do with Yankee fans and even today, and I don't know I go back. I just think in nineteen sixty two in that World Series and McCovey hitting that last ball and everything else. It'd be nice to see Yankees giants. One more time in a World Series. And let the giants even the record that I you know, it's part of baseball. All right. Joining us outstanding book, Dave Herman, did it. It's called almost Yankees. The summer of eighty one in the greatest baseball team. You've never heard of and Dave this is a book a labor of love for you. But you talk about the Columbus clippers at a very important time in America with the strike season going on and all of a sudden the Columbus clippers became the the story. And a lot of those players went on stave Righetti, Steve bony, some we know out here in San Francisco, but you did a great story about that year. Tell us about it. Well, thanks Marty. It's it's a thrill to be on with you. Yeah. It was a special season in nineteen eighty one really a lot of this for me for all this Steinbrenner intrigue and all the attention that the clippers Scott during the baseball strike and the title they won. This was my first favorite team. I think it's still my favorite team in some ways of all time. You know, I think a lot of baseball fans have this team that just grabs them when they're young. And I learned how to keep score with this team and how to track along with box scores and taken my glove to the game. And yeah, it was it was very magical season in Columbus. Steve Balboni hidden monster home runs and Dave Righetti. And obviously went all never forget. I've loved tracking these guys down telling the stories for you. I let everyone know the Columbus clippers what kind of a team where they where did they play who is the manager? And why why this team became so famous the Columbus clippers were the AAA affiliate of the? The Yankees at that time. And there were a lot of very talented players for this team that sort of were stuck in George Steinbrenner system he was not one to promote younger players from within or trust them. He always wanted to go out for the kind of high priced overpriced free agent, but he wanted to win at all levels. So he stopped this team. They had an unusual collection of talent for triple A. The manager Frank Verdy at his own sort of moonlight Graham moment in the majors where he played defensive inning for the Yankees in fifty three and was in the box twice and got pulled out and never hit. And then sent to the minors and never made it back. Yeah. A lot of amazing stories around this team for sure Frank Verdy. Of course was at the time trying to get back to the majors as a coach trying to get there as much as any of the players at the time. Steve Balboni, of course, by Balboni, one of the advance scouts of the giants in one of the trusted people that very much part of the giants World Series victories here in two thousand ten twelve and fourteen he's in the book as well. Oh, yeah. He was so much fun to watch. He would not only hit a lot of home runs. But it, you know, at this the mileage on them. I saw him hit a five hundred foot home run off. Steve drove when Steve Jordan was pitching for the Richmond Braves on a may night with my dad, and the people were just slap shot in the stands. And then talking to Steve about that. He remembers it quite well and has said there's no other time I've hit a ball quite like that. And he was sort of this Bambino esque figure swan a huge bat kinda softspoken though. But just a terrific fun player to watch as a kid, and and certainly as walk growing up as well, Dave Righetti, and I've talked to Dave about being on this team. And Dave had good memories of it. And I think he bounced back and forth a little bit. But he was part of the Columbus clippers in eighty one. He was he was just absolutely dominant at the beginning of that season. It was so hard to to kind of force your way up to the big club under Steinbrenner. But there was just no denying. Him. He was five zero with a one point zero zero ERA heat allowed by one run in twenty seven innings, and they literally called him up in the middle of an outing. And he goes on to win the American League rookie of the year and pitched against Fernando Valenzuela in the World Series that year, and you know, we had moved from Columbus to California, and he was one of my favorite players from San Jose. So I was thrilled when he came back over to the giants for sure a little a few years later. How did you track all these guys down because you got to like three quarters of the people who are involved. Out of the thirty six. Well, I am a reporter by trade. So certainly some of those skills a lot of them just listed in online white pages. Honestly, certainly the clippers and major league baseball alumni association were very helpful and sort of word of mouth. But yeah, most of the guys some I had to you know, it took quite a while. Or some warn is interested to talk, but most were and work sort of happy to to walk down memory lane. And we had a lot of fun. A lot of them really opened up to me about maybe just missing the majors or not being there, very long and short about how they're still dream about it, and that sort of thing it's been a lot of fun. You talk. Dave Herman is with us. The book is almost Yankees the summer of eighty one in the greatest baseball team. You've never heard of. And now we've heard of them believe me they went on. Did they win? They won right? Then they win. They did. They did something that no international league team has had done before or has ever done since. They won their third straight internationally pennant. And then also their third straight governor's Cup. That's the season ending play offs. And so they had that accomplishment. The weird thing for me was we moved away in in August rabbit for this team. And you know, it was nineteen Eighty-one. I couldn't just flip up my laptop and track them. And then so there's a lot of unfinished business for me in writing this. I had looked at a couple years later saw that they did win. But it never knew the details, and with the exception of your Balboni Righetti and some of the guys that made the majors. I just kind of wondered whatever happened all these childhood heroes, a mine, and again had a good time finding them there's another name that jumps out of me. Buck Showalter, how did he fit into this? Well, you know had been at the AA level and had fared pretty well as a hitter at double A, and he made the clippers out of the at the beginning of the eighty one season. But you know, Steinbrenner once again went out and acquired another major league veteran a guy named Dave Stegman who played for the Tigers. And and that sort of bumped buck back down to two AA Nashville and in talking to him, he sort of realized that you know, he might have topped out a hitter at double a, but obviously he went onto the hugely successful managerial career. But yeah, he was with the clippers for about a month early in the season. Interesting. Dave, let me ask you this. The toughest attract down who would that have been? Well, I have to say a guy named Dave Coleman who was sort of archetype of, you know, aging veteran oldest guy on the team thirty. He almost didn't report at the beginning of the season. He'd had twelve at bats for the Red Sox back in seventy seven good luck. Making those teams and had never made it back since I ended up having to I found a mention of his son who was a dentist and Dayton, Ohio and contacted his son and his son convinced Dave to to talk to me, and it took a couple years, honestly. But one day while I was sitting at my day job and the phone rings and the Dave Coleman we talked for about forty five minutes. And it was a great interview. Dave Coleman had a really important role down the stretch. But yeah, I had to kind of pull out all the stops to try and get in touch with some of the guys for sure very good. I enjoyed the book. It's it's so well written, and of course, your writer by trade, and you you really capture kind of the images, I always say like the feel the images of the game an anecdote, you could share with us. Maybe that was fun learning. I had a great experience. There's a player name Marshall Brant who was really sort. Everyone's hero in Columbus. Home. Run hitting never refusing an autograph great with kids and teaching clinics and just just terrific. And he is one of these players that sorta got stuck in the Yankee system, and you know, I had no idea really what he'd been doing all these years while he's from Santa Rosa. And you know, he, you know, done some, you know, selling cars and stuff like that over the years, and I went to his house, and I met him, and it was the first time, and you know, knocked on the door and the six foot five silver haired guy answers the door, and I'm thinking, well, maybe I can talk to this guy for a couple of hours. I hope it'll be fun. And we talk for ten hours hours and hours we had meals together. We we didn't just talk about baseball. But we talked about life, and he opened up to me a lot about sort of the inner struggles he went through some of which I really relate to and so that's just really been a favorite moment. He's been very encouraging and even told me once, you know, the roles have sort of reversed here. You know, when I was trying to get a book deal. He said now, I'm the one sitting up in the stands cheering for you to succeed. And you know, what even say to that? You know, this guy is my hero. And so so, yeah, I, you know, it's you know, I got to throw out the first pitch at the clippers game earlier this year. And you know, it's just it's just been a great fun ride for me. And you know. Yeah, this is thrilled to I I love can be are like I said we moved to the bay area and I've been a giants fan ever since. And you know, this is just great glad to have you on the passion in the book comes across really easily. It's very well done. Where does one get the book you can buy it on Amazon dot com or really most online retailers?.

I mean, there's guys who have done it Righetti. Did this guy who done it? That's not the point of doing it. The point of doing it is the idea of that you are screwing the player by doing it. That's the point that the caller was bringing up the idea that you're creating an economic unfair economic situation for the player because you can never make the same money. It's it's a proven fact if you're a star starter. Look what you get paid. If you're a relieved look what you get is nothing close. So and if you're a mediocre starter if you're a guy who can just keep your head above water and fix to an innings. You're gonna make fifteen fourteen million dollars. And sometimes more. Gary in jersey was Garrett. This real quick on the playoffs. The rocket chance against the warriors or anybody, even or do you think that the warriors just too dominant? Yeah.

But they we know they don't like each other. So there's obviously a problem in that locker room. But Kevin Durant. You know, I I don't really like him. I I mean, I don't like green either. But if you like them and not the guy's a great player though. I mean sold out, you know, whatever you wanna say fine. But you know, we went to the finals, but he also went to the finals you wanna file MVP twice. Yeah. That's true. But when you have all starts in around. He was still better than everybody else though. They played better than everybody on his team. I it wasn't like the guys on the team played better than he did he played better than everybody on his team. The rocket a chance though with pardoning fall chance. I think it's probably a chance and a chance if everything falls, right? I mean, they have to get red hot from the perimeter. Everything's got a full, right. Paul has to really contribute, which is something that is always up and down with him. Fred and Smithtown what's up. Hey, mike. Nice show today. What's happening? Big giant fan. I'm really happy cattleman did what the Odell trade not nothing, but just getting the fix and putting us in a really good position of Bilbao defense again. And I hope he uses the first couple of picks four find some. I know we're going to be good as far as the quarterback. Mike do seem DC trade. What are you citrate for rose? You see a free agent maybe next year. No, I think mall. I think the giants most likely. I think this three scenarios take a lot. I don't have a preference. I don't I haven't done any work on the quarterbacks. I don't have a preference on any of them. I wouldn't take any cakes. Oakland pick that I'm not I'm not picking a quarterback on the high side. I'm not. And his what his look at. I think that they will either get Rosen what take a quarterback number two hosing. I think three might get him. I think they take a quarterback on the second round. Or they take Rosen. I don't think they take a quarterback on the first one. That's what I think. Drew in Trenton, what's up, drew? Disagree. I think throat as most you're gonna take Askins really doing. Then why did you bring you back? Well. I Japan you could trade up. And you know, I know people always talk about that Kansas City model. But I I think regardless of that house is talented got there reason there is no there is no Kansas City model to begin with those thing model completely overblown. But I think he's gonna take them. I really do. I think this kid is the one issue in Jeremiah mentioned, it is he's his feet aren't great. But you get him an NFL quarterback coach and put them in conditioning program. I think it'll be fun. Everything got a great armies. Accuracy smart. Why not listen? I. Just just fogging say, how would you know, you smart? While you see all these things that he's he's when they construct the defense that you can pick it apart. So I don't know small. I mean to me listen to me, if I broadly, I've made this very close I failed if done to say, but if I brought Eli back I'm not gonna quarterback. I if I was going to draft a quarterback with the six pick. I wouldn't have brought back. I didn't make any sense to pay the money you could save you could cap savings and got another player with the money. They made no sense to bring you back sit on a bench because you pick a quarterback at six. They're gonna wanna play them. In jersey, what's up being? I don't really think the giants should go with a quarterback at six less tasking. Or trade for Rosen. I mean what what are your thoughts on that? If they don't go for either one of those guys don't even bother. Well, I'm not a believer in picking a quarterback a six industry. No matter who it is. I don't want anybody. Guy quarterback how arm. No, I don't. I think I don't think he's as good as Jameis Winston. Not really. Yeah. They're like each other at college. I don't think it's Benjamin's one-sided. I told you James Winston bay better quarterback. He will be. James driven. Not good. So you think Janus hasn't proven that? He's not good. He's proven that. He is very erratic in that he makes a ton of positive plays and a tug on of negative plays. He doesn't like it's not like he doesn't make plays. He makes plays. He scores points. He drives for touchdowns. He throws picks. That's what he does. And that's what's got to be worked out his game as he takes too many chances. He he throws picks. See if I have a guy who can't make throws in. I can't get him to make a play James makes plays. He puts up numbers. But he throws terrible picks that difference. What about Murray if he was there at three in the jets had a good deal trade down? What you do it? No wouldn't touch him. All right. My I would never touch. I would never let someone else when when the quarterback that's us. I'm not trying to quarterback that says back after this. Hey, guys. Russell wilson. We're asking you to join us in.

"Saves and also throw a no hitter. Right. Not to shame here. Obviously. Right. And of course, it a career. Dave Righetti number two. Now number three's a little harder. I'll give you a hint. The Boston Red sock. A red sock. Who was a starter was the most of them go start afresh them become a reliever. Yeah. I think he was really very afterwards. Talent whose career became a reliever pitched nowhere to previously. I was gonna say Glenn Barker, but Dallas he was an Indian now. You got me. Who is very good. Right. You remember last time? Jodi, we were talking about trade one on one best play best player in baseball. We missed an obvious one. Bobby bonds for Bobby Mercer now. I would say both of those two guys at the time with the best players. Correct. All right. And last month we were remiss we didn't make mention it was the fiftieth anniversary of the greatest, and I mean, the greatest trade in New York sports history greatest trade and new now that rules out the it was out the Bruce because that was a purchase. Okay. But this trade changed the landscape of the whole sport, New York. If you wanna talk about it. The fiftieth anniversary of this show December of sixty eight. Given me Dave to brush your come to the Knicks. Okay. Right to championships. One final loss in three eastern. Final losses. Now one last thing Jodi, this guy Schumer, the coach of the giants is no changes doing favor, if you're gonna reference him at least get his name, right? Correct. Okay. They get the ball at the forty eight yard line a minute left. They have to timeouts left. At the forty eight. They have to go seventeen yards at least thirty five. You'll attempt to fifty two yard field goal. Time is not important. Now. Why do they throw? Fifteen eighteen yard out patterns, very hard to compete with the clock in mind. There was no reason they had plenty of time. They could have thrown it down the middle. They could've even ran a couple of places. I they went over four turn the ball over the result is in it wasn't good enough. I lies the one who's pulling the trigger on the passes. Don't be Tutu's number-one option every single time. If he did he threw the one thing we can say for sure is they lousy passes. He overthrew two of them badly. One of them had chance was a good defensive play. The other one wasn't a great door either. You know, put it all on Shurmur and his play calling there. I'm gonna leave most critique for that on the guy who was on the field who didn't execute the plays and get the ball where he needed to sorry for me that last possession was more on airline. And it wasn't a coach's plan. Here on the fan. Johnny Mak cigarette until six thirty Joey Lauren top of the hour update. The NFL playoffs get underway with.
