"So Davey Johnson has a very storied career here in New York, So we got Hank and when we've got Larry King again, Roy Firestone, he's going to stop buying the nine o'clock hour to talk about both. Which Larry is going to be here today. And what was the weekend like? I did watch some of the news shows yesterday, and it's basically the same thing. Now what they do every day is go over. All of the executive orders that Joe Biden signed and Nobody really seems to like him. I didn't see anybody. Well, let me just say I watched Fox News Sunday on Lee, because well, they first he had let's see, but I don't know he he had Mitt Romney. That's right. Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio so I wanted to watch it. And pretty much. The only order they talked about was the XL Pipeline with the Keystone The Keystone the XL Keystone XL Pipeline with Marco Rubio. He didn't talk anything about really about the executive orders. Marco Rubio had to bring him up. It was all about Trump Trump Trump. He can't get away from trying to get away from Trump You Marco Rubio. Now we'll have something going on with Trump. Because the room was our that Trump's daughter Ivanka will run against Marco Rubio for that Senate seat in Florida. You really see that happening? No, I don't And Marco wasn't you? I mean, you know Chris Wallace trying to stir up trouble. Instead of asking about the very, very important the impactful executive orders. Instead of asking Ruby about any of those things. Yes, it was all about Trump and trying to stir up trouble between Ivanka and Rubio. Rubio's like, Hey, it's a free country. If she wants to let her go ahead. I say Leave Marco Rubio. He was great. He was well, I love Mark. He's great. He was home with you when I come about a month ago. Right Latino Day we celebrate. We had Mark. Oh, that's right. He's a very good senator. And just leave him there. You're right Commitment. Romney, by the way, of course, all for impeachment, but he's not really down with this $1.9 trillion stimulus package. In other words, he's back to the 2012 mantra of the tea party people back then, which was We can't afford this. We have to. You know, the way to the way to stimulate the economy is to reopen the economy. Ah, lot of that. I agree with now. Also the impeachment. That was a lot of the talk this thing because I did see Some of the new shows. And if you were hoping that Joe Biden in his effort to unify America, remember that word he used about 1000 times last Wednesday during his speech, Unity unify, you know? In his effort to do that a lot of us were hoping he would squash this impeachment deal. He's not They are moving forward with it. And what is the latest in terms of the Senate? Well, in terms of today is the day that remember remember a year ago when they marched the impeachment articles. From the house, led by Adam Schiff. I mean, it was the most ridiculous spectacle, and you had Hakeem Jeffries in his sneakers. Nancy Pelosi all marched over like they were doing, you know, the most important work in the world, and they're big, dramatic drama. Queens is what they want. Anyway. They're going to do that again today. All right, and finally kind of a big story. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the first team ever. Play a home game in the Super Bowl. You know when they signed Tom Brady, and they started signing guys like Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown. I must have done about 50 different spots across radio station sports talk radio stations across America, and we joked all season long. What if Tom Brady gets a host? A Super Bowl never been done before. Opens never played in Miami charges never played in San Diego, and that's that is what's going to happen. The Buccaneers get the win at Lambeau Yesterday, Patrick Mahomes is going back for a second straight season. It'll be Tom Brady and the Buccaneers versus Patrick, my homes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Super Bowl 55 in Tampa in two weeks. Nice rematch, but Yeah, Todd's Tampa Bay, Of course, the home team there. I don't see that. I know a lot of people making a lot that the fact that it's his home town, and I mean well, the Bucks hometown. I don't see that plane. Much of the fact I really don't because there's a two week layoff, so it's not like travel makes a difference to we, exactly. I mean, plus once you get on the field, I mean so's cheering. Who cares? There's only 22,000 fans there anyway, because of the covert this year. So it's not like they're gonna pack the house with fucking your fans. They're gonna be supposedly they have all taken the vaccine. They've all been inoculated, right? Correct. And they did meet head to head told me a paper us. If you want to go seize the Super Bowl. They did meet two years ago. Head to head. But of course, that was the NFC championship game. Work. Tom Brady and the Pats won in Kansas City and went on to beat the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl in Atlanta with you when I covered live from Georgia for two days.

"Aaron hit two Go past Babe Ruth with number 715. He went out to hit 40 more home runs before his career was over, and that it's 7 55. And then you heard from the great Larry King, who passed away this weekend at the age of 87, a very funny back and forth, which Seinfeld We're thinking about doing a day for both of those gentlemen later on in the week, But we start with that. The passing of two legends baseball great Hank Aaron and I guess interview slash news Great. Worry King with that, said Bernard McGurk. Good morning, said Rosenberg. It's not beautiful morning for either of those gentlemen, though they did. They did live. Great lives. I have to tell you about Hank. You know, I know he had a rough time earlier, Not only on almost about his whole career. Well, let me just say this. I saw him. Uh, I believe it was just before the pandemic I saw interviewed. By a rod in the ESPN Boof and he seemed like a very happy man. He was a very happy guy. He was a very nice guy. But don't confuse the issue. When he hit that home run to go past Babe Ruth and 1974. You would think that was a celebratory moment for Hank Aaron. He received more death threats. And I know you say everybody gets that threats. They will let you know. I know it was. It was awful. So so, yes, he had a nice life in the end, and he was a very It was a gracious man of Very nice man, but it was not easy he was not able to enjoy. And I said this morning to Frank. That's part of my frustration with the modern day athletes. When LeBron James wins championships, he's beloved. He's revered black people, white people, There's a million's and millions of little white kids walk around wearing LeBron James jerseys. Whether it's Cleveland, Miami or the Lakers. Hank Aaron never really enjoyed that type of thing. So to me, it's kind of a bitter sweet deal for Hank, and he came into the league very shortly after Jackie Robinson broke the barriers, so he actually started Hank out. Glad you mentioned that in the Negro leagues. Yes, he did so short stay. There was one team called the Wolves at the Cleveland clowns or something like that, that he started. Yes, he was a Cleveland guy. In fact, why Firestone is gonna tell us a story later on about how we used to go to Cleveland Brown games. Sit there on the stands with really like a mask on so people didn't recognize him. He never asked for a free ticket. He never asked to sit in the box or VIPs treatment. He went like a member of the dog pound because that's how he was and went to Cleveland games if you watch the Chiefs and Bill's last night in Kansas City, They would Arrowhead Stadium and in Kansas City. I should say they have a museum for the Negro Leagues. The Kansas City Monarchs was a very popular baseball team in those leagues, and that is where Henry started very short time. And then, of course, Had that brilliant career with the Braves and the Brewers. Let me correctly, it was it was the Indianapolis Clown. Yeah, but then the Braves right and the minor league system and he just what we talked about last week with the former Yankees player. Roy White, Ivory White, I'm not with the King Day he went through the same crap saint in the south. And even worse because again, he was breaking records set by legendary God like white men like Babe Ruth, and nobody wanted that. Nobody wanted that. So he had them with 7 55. Of course, he's not the home run King. Statistically that belongs to Barry Bonds. He ended with 762 7 more than Hank Aaron. But the old time pants, a traditional baseball fans. They consider Hank Aaron, the home run king to this day, because Barry Bonds you steroids that that's a big argument. Of course, we all know that Barry Bonds went from looking like Oracle to the rock. Overnight and so Yeah, I know. I know you're going to say, Look it technically, stories doesn't help you. I hand eye coordination hit the ball. I did say that, but it doesn't make you more powerful. It does I like I said. This morning, you go from warning track power to home run power, evidenced by Brady Anderson, a former Baltimore Oriole player that never hit home runs and hit 50 in one season. When he came back into camp looking three times bigger than he was the year before. So it does. And that's why Barry Bonds is not in the Hall of Fame. Correct. So I would say I would. I would agree with the traditionalists that really Hank Aaron holds the title. You were thinking our guy I actually saw Hank Aaron hit a home run in Shea Stadium. Is that the early seventies? I swear to God Never never forget it. Never forget it. Wow. In the early seventies, I was there. And I saw him hit a home run. I was staying. I was actually standing when he hit it. And it was before he broke the record, but nevertheless, he was on track to beat the record s so it's something that stuck in my head all these years. That is huge. He was a member, and we'll move off this here of the first trio ever. Hit 40 home runs on the same team. I think Colorado's done it since maybe others there were three members of the same Atlanta brave team to hit 40 plus home runs in the same season. They were the first to do it. It was Darrell Evans. It was Hank Aaron, and it was the former manager of the New York Mets. Davey Johnson. Well, there you have it. Davey Johnson also made the very last out in the 1969 World Series when he flew out to center field when the Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles to win it..

"We don't think you can expect is the unexpected. I thought. Every fall. Bankers were just goingto mom from 90 years Were you in attendance and any of those games I was not for a very specific reason. I was a senior in college at the time. And I wanted to come out. My father said Listen, if you want to come out to get you tickets, get your plane everything else. I only had one class. I was way ahead and credits so I only had one class. And if I was going to the World Series, we're going to miss the midterm. I asked the teacher Listen can I can do will make up on the mid term, So I know you got to be here that night. I said All right, then everyone. So I walked out of class at night Now I knew I was going to drop the class and I informed my father of this and he said, Wait a minute. You got one class and you're not going to make it through the class. You going to drop it and have no classes? I said Yes. So why not just take it next semester? And he goes and know your tickets or cancelled Plane tickets? World Series tickets. I was not allowed to go because I was going on his dime. I didn't have my own dime those days, eh? So I kind of shot myself in my foot with my academic standards, So I like you watch the World Series and celebrated. On television, like most of the country. And he went to Detroit. Didn't the 87 Tigers remember the epic collapse between the Bluejays on the Tiger's? He was part of that general manager too, You know, with Kirk Gibson and Jack Morrison. They lost the Minnesota and in the champion's championship serious, but he was one of the architects of the 87 series two. He was a V P. He was the Ah general and you for just one year because their GM I decided to quit in spring training right before the season started. So they didn't see that coming. Did know it was gonna happen, so they had annexed GM on the staff. So they said Go. You've got to take over his general manager. He said. No, thanks. And they said, What do you mean? No, Dave, we're gonna make you the general manager. He said I really don't want to do that anymore. I made more my million dollars agent I like my job, as is So they talked him into it. He said he would do it for one year. He did hey was told that he would be allowed to be in on picking of the next general manager, and his suggestion would be all but assured to get the gig. And in the season ended and the team was sold. So the new ownership came in and said Not only are you going to make the coffin, the new general manager Ah, your services are no longer needed either. So they cleaned house. A lot of people go, but Hey, didn't joy is time in Detroit as well? And he was on the New York Mets organization wasn't from 78 79. He was vice president of the Metro was GM from 75 to 79. That's where he got his first GM. Starting. He was with the match from 62 on their inaugural season and made his way up through the organization until he was named general manager in 75. So he was part of the miracle Mets wasn't in 1969 1969. Now ask me if I was at that one. I sure as heck Woz when Tommy Jones got the fly ball to deep left off the bat of Davey Johnson would have eventually become the Mets manager and win their only other World Series in 1986. I was sitting behind home plate for my father and attempted to run out onto the field. But he grabbed me before I got too far. So it's back into his office for a little campaign for an eight year old kid. It was pretty cool. It was a major upset, too, because Baltimore was very heavily favor. They remind games ahead of the Mets, you know, and after the third team, I thought they were gonna want them. And then the Mets won the next four games. Ripped off foreign around won a World Series..

"That God had a Twitter battle. Woodhaven I saw little now What was this about? If you don't mind me asking That's what's interesting in your history kind of plays in here. It was about the top five Andrews and that's it. And if I remember correctly, Hey, had Gil Hodges low on the list. Good because he never saw him. That's what sounded and Heman demon wasn't having it and actually blocked him. Well, well, well, well, well, wait, wait. I think it's so Sal did it and all due respect the South because he didn't see the lodge's doesn't mean you would put the guy let you know low on. Oh, yeah, I think it's more. I think it's more complicated than that. Like what I saw so because I did lose interest in it after a little bit like I was following salad Hayman going at it, and I was like, I'm kind of bored. The way I did see it Start is that on s n Y On Whatever Show what show? Does he do that He's on one of sports Night sports Night. Diego Human Moose. Okay, So Sal rank his top five managers in med history, which was obviously incorrect list. I mean, no offense, How I love it wasn't incorrect. You're wrong. Like He had Davey Johnson, number one, which is fine. That's OK. If you could be number one had body Valentine number two. No one who has to be either way. You want to put it. Gil with David, right? Terry Collins, number three. OK Gil Hodges for and that this one was my favorite case. East angle in five. I mean, Casey was a mascot for the match. And basically, that's what only one So I guess the tweet from s. And why would you agree with South list? And John Hammon responded, No, no one does, Which I don't think was a bad response. I mean, he's not wrong. It was. I love sound, and he's a great fan. But the list is wrong, right? What was wrong with it? However, you want to put it. It's Gil and baby want to even know, However, you want to go. Right. And you could pretty much gold from there. You're probably looking at Bobby. Next. I would think I'm just going to stop me. And I'm thinking Bobby Valentine is probably the next guy right when you agree after Davey and Gil Yeah, yes. In my opinion, I would put Bobby number three. Yes. Yeah. I mean, ah. You know, after that, it's a drop off that you know you're you know, you're grasping at straws that it's don't know what? I don't know what you want to put. Yogi, I You want a yogi up? He did take up the world. Cirino. What? Here's Mike, Can I tell you something Do with Yogi. Here's the problem I have with the old barrel, you know, is the biggest ride with Yogi Berra. And this was before my time, too. But what I always here, Joe. Is complaint about Yogi Bear the manager from players that played for him and even fans with some of the decisions he made specifically in the Tom Seaver George's own decision in the 73 World Series, So it's right. It's tough as good look, he's an icon. First. We all know the greatness of Yogi Berra. But in terms of him as a manager, I don't know. What Here's where, I think Sal Inhumans argument. God got bad because right now it's fine. Saleh's and opinion he's wrong about John's correcting him and then sow responded. Just the way I like it. By the way, John did Scott Boris tell you to tweet that that's where it got back. Is that right? So he really He really took a low blow at haven in. He took. He took a shot at that slow And then I After that, that's when I lost interest. But something about how it sounds like he's not a nice guy. I don't know. I I won't happen. Doesn't like Ayman. Is that right? Apparently. Well, I don't think either one likes each other. Then you know, we show they don't even know we should do today. Besides, just this Twitter battle I think from when Haman was on with Mike in the dog back in the day. That's where he would know him. Castle obviously worked on the mike in the Mad Dog Show used to be our John, with Mike and Chris. I think so many years ago. Yeah, I don't ever remember him on with those guys. Apparently, he was, or at least that's what Sal remembers. Remember. So that's the nature of their Twitter fight. Which I was interested in for about 40 seconds. And I lost interest, right? I don't know where he took a shot at me. I think a shot of myself. I can't believe it. You're 1/2 ago. I thought Jed Lowry was better than D. J. LeMay. Yeah. I mean, who who knew? It's amazing how those two guys have turned in the last year and 1/2 considering where they both were during the off season, and now you got D J almost winning MVP. And Jed Lowry is a rumor one extreme to the other room. It doesn't get any more of that pretty much it, but those were the top guys in a minute. Like I said, it's Gil Either way, Gil Davey and Bobby and then wherever you want to go from there, Yeah, the by the way, the more interesting managerial debate Is the Yankee one watches. Now you got legends. Everyone. Now you're talking Miller, Huggins and Casey Stengel's Totori. Joe Torry. I mean, Joe McCarthy. Oh, yeah. Now you're talking about championships and lots of guys. It's tough. It's tough. That is a tough one will come back with more your calls. Michael Lombardi is going to join us in the four o'clock I will get into the issues that is still raging.

"Know it's been 33 years when we got to contemporaries that jingle a little bit. That's that's a little moly If we have our own jingle, Howie, but we have our own about that. Well, we'll see how many times we got to use it, You know, Fastball season supposedly starting and we'll have a couple of more Sundays of this. But, you know, this is the weekend that we are Commemorating the 33rd anniversary of W F a A and which, as you know, went on the air July 1st of 1987 now prior to W H and turning into W F A N I've been hired to do this new extended pre and postgame show for the Mets called Mets extra, and I said the only way I'll do the show is if I have a constant audience with the manager on the air, and so Davey Johnson, who had just managed the Mets to the world Championship in 1986 agreed to do the show. And he joins us on the air right now. And Davey. It is always great talking to you. But before we even get to the hellos, I've got to ask you one thing. What were you thinking? Why did you decide to do that show or agree to do it anyway? Well, how he was such a good baseball man, and it was really the main reason I want to do it. Because you know, in New York City. There's so many experts out there. They're fans. And they call all the time. You know, I'd listen to the radio on the way to the ball park and listen to the radio on the way home and everybody was second guessing every move I ever made. And so it was fun to talk to you and we'd get right down to it. I'd give him all the reasons why you do things in a ballgame, So it was my way to get back. Get all those guys that thought they were better managers than me. You know what's great about what you've just said. Davey is that you were really aware ofthe w F A N and the radio because you know if you were listening on the way in what everybody is an expert, you know Darryl's playing too far in and Doc should have been in here and whatever it wass, so you were aware off the radio right from the beginning. No question about it. And it was a really big help to me because, you know, I always want to know what people were taken and why they second guess your moves and everything you make. But the problem was, you know, they don't have all the facts. They don't have the injury of fact, they don't have any. How I used a blast. Now I played on keep using them. And so it was. It was really great for me, and I loved it with Howie. Howie was great. He would get right to the point. You know any thing that was really on the fans mind he would come right out with didn't ask me about it. And I love that. You know, I loved all the honesty and force. Forthright coming for with tough questions. And it took a little bit of time for that develop because even though I've been in the club House regularly is a radio reporter. We didn't really know each other until that 1987 season, and I know there were times early on when you might have been taken aback or little uncomfortable with the nature of the questions, which, in my opinion, we're the same questions that any beat writer for a newspaper. We're going to ask. So what you know, when did that corner turn for you? Was it when W h and morphed into w f A n And all of a sudden you could hear that stuff? 24 7 wasn't a comfort level that you know, we just developed between the two of us. What? What turned the corner for you? Well, how you're very easy to talk to. And I love somebody gets right to the point. Don't pull any punches. And you know it's a way to stay connected with the fans. And I really think that you know, baseball's about the fans. And you know my job is not necessarily Telling them how they second guess me wrong but was just relating to them What was going on? And I love listen to the radio. And where was W. Fe and it was constant. So I had I had all kinds of talking points that I could talk about it in Krypton Misunderstandings among fans. It was great for me. And you know you never really bad mouth me, you know, So it was easy to you know, Davey, We just had to talk to me the next day way We're doing it every day. It seemed like we did it. Morning and night. You know, you know, really know, I always come in the ballpark early because I like to work out a little bit. Not too much, and then I like to go through the training him to see how what's the condition that everybody was? And then I got to talk to you. Very early before head going to feel so it was just it was good and I, you know, I think everybody that's ever been in New York has to listen and read the newspapers. And everything, and it's part of it. It was easy for me. Because I didn't grow up with all these fans and a lot of people. Many years later, I thought I was in New York. Er, but I know it took Buddy Harrelson didn't take it. Well, you know, they took it too personal. I didn't take it personally. All I just talking took it very professionally that it's about the game. And what's best for the game, Eh? Davey, Howie and I were talking the other day about the night You came in the in the booth and you're on the air with him. I guess it was after a game. And you said, Oh, yeah, maybe Darryl, I'll never forget this. I'm all maybe Darryl was playing too far out there, and it was just such a funny such a great thing that you did, and it was the ease that you had in talking to the fans and kind of making fun off. What Goes on on talk radio. I can remember it like it was yesterday. And it wasn't yesterday. Well, you know, that's a good question. You know, First of all, they didn't know Darryl Strawberry now does Strawberry had great talent? You know? And he could come in a heck of a lot better than you could go back. So, you know, I mean, if I had been playing in his instincts wouldn't have been as good as where he was where he felt comfortable playing, and he was lined up, right? And that was the thing I was worried about. Although I did have sex. I did get a couple of coaches fired. I mean, Bill Robinson, one of my best friends and a great hitting coach would use outfield coach They fired him because So that comment all the time on the air that they're playing too deep. And you know, maybe a single would drop in front of him. So You know, I had a little Bill Robinson go and I told cash and I said, Fire me. Don't feel him. Fire him. It all comes down to me. But I lost him and another coach. It's interesting. You bring that up for a couple of reasons..

To New York and Davey Johnson was hitting Roby hitting coach before he came back as a manager. Live to my swing got me on the play. When I when I came up with Houston. We had hit down on the ball and go the other way. Harry Walker is called pop and glide. Long story short. Because how big astrodome was they didn't want you fly balls. And it just was not a part conducive to Nome runs in any way, change and wasn't a good hitter. But at least I became a threat, and I can help help retain with occasional homerun. And that's what kept me in the game. Homerun hitter..

"Here's the thing, and this is just me it was any younger drivers. They would await it in monitored their radio to see if they were running out again. Right before. Yeah, exactly. I'm wiggling. Oh, caution. Caution. Comes out. I know it's too bad over there too bad. Do make berry, doesn't have an arm. I do that. I would not suggest that NASCAR tries to fix races. There's a bunch of BS is impossible to do, but I do think that it's the situation you're the outcome? Yeah, I do think that the situation would. I do think that the chances of that white flag coming out would have been different based on different drivers up at the front at least a little bit, at least a tiny tiny bit. There was a website that was tracking numbers of cautions that no camera angles Sol like that's how much NASCAR can junior race it, yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, it's not out of the realm of possibility that they would do something a little bit shady and that that in data loan. Okay. That effort by by various people did have an effect when you think about it. We have so many fewer debris cautions now than we used to have. Oh, yeah. No, I think absolutely. Like you have to because the people are going to be like watchdogs. Yeah, so, but I know I think that there is that it was a sliding rule on that one and that a different driver in front might have had a different outcome. And really, you know the the question is, should the flag come out should not have come out? And to me, my gut reaction was there's going to be a caution. And then when we didn't see it, I was like, oh, NASCAR is just doing this because they want to raise to the one. It's race to the back back to the flag because they're that desperate that they're going to forego the safety issue to try and get us an exciting result, which which again means that the caution should come out. Yeah. So. Can we talk about the race itself? I, oh, I thought you were going to bring up. Was it a home run? Was it not a home run. It was. It was not. It was obviously not a home run was not Tony. Tony Tarasco is under it. Twenty Tarasco should have been able to catch it. God damn Jeffrey mayor. So to reach over and then and then Davey Davey Johnson had to come out and argue it. Nothing happening. Tony Tarasco is at elite three years later. Exactly. Did you see the the one last night in the Boston and they're arguing about that? I'm like, why are you arguing about that? Show the video that got the kid reaching his arm over the fence. Remember remember ninety six guys. Exactly. That's that's an out that literally doomed a franchise for the next two decades did did, and thank you, Chris Davis for taking that gigantic contract. That's untradable anyway. Like sort of like, all right, So Chris Davis up there. It's the bats, like a monkey hump of the football much like what I saw when they were trying to get a second line in, nobody knew what the hell's going on. You know, at some point out of Dr restrictor plate race. At some point, those guys had to like they're spotters the cruciate. Somebody had to been like the only way we're going to catch these guys if we team up and they still can't figure out how to do it. Then one guy goes out and then he gets back into line while everybody else starts to get out. It's like, well, you should have followed me like two seconds ago. Yeah, it was. It was absurd while there goes to the four, the forty one, the fourteen just checking out. Yeah, I don't understand how they couldn't figure that out. It does not take a route. I'd say They they got. got they prepaid and just left the hotel key on the dresser and left. They didn't have to worry about the signatures enough today were gone to the airport already. Exactly, exactly. I, I don't understand how it was such a bumble behind those four guys that nobody could get themselves organized. Hell it was like all the Penske guys were right behind him to Paul..
