"It just felt to me like they kind of had an idea what was coming, which makes you think, if it goes 7, now what? Like it would be mccullers turn to start again. Javier would be ready. I would think in relief, all hands on deck and all that. And game 7 seems like it's a year away. But I'm sure the Astros are having some oh boy. What do we do if it gets to 7? Because he's got to do more than execute better. He's got to change his pitch mix if he's going to face them again. Yeah, I think dusty had game 7 in his mind as that was playing out last night, as you know, there's been some criticism of dusty for in the eyes of some, not getting mccullers out of there sooner. Dan, I was watching that. I'm thinking, dusty, thinking is, you know what, I might need this guy and say game 7 and I need him to pitch? Like, you know, going into that game last night, he'd only pitched twice in 28 days. And so he needed Lance mccullers to have an outing where he's on this mountain. He's working through some things. And he needs to do everything he can to help make him better in a game 7. And I got to believe, yeah, that if there is a game 7, mccullers on the mound, it's going to be very different, right? With his pitch mix. Yeah, I would have to think. And I think one of the tricky parts for dusty, you know, is mccullers had sat down 7 in a row coming into the 5th inning. Like he was looking fine. He had gotten the two through 8 hitters or one through 7 hitters, I think, 7 in a row. And then he gets the first out of the 5th inning. So he had set down 8 in a row, and then marsh, the number 9 hitter gets a base hit. You know, if he had given up kind of an innocuous single in the third and innocuous single in the fourth and schwarber's leading off the 5th, maybe he doesn't even come back out for the 5th inning, but he had set down 7 in a row the 8 and 9 hitters were the first two guys up. He gets the number 8 hitter Segura and nana base hit for marsh and then boom, boom. And then it happens in the blink of an eye. So, you know, it was one of those things where things maybe could have turned out different. And they're not going to win the game. No matter what happens, but what it might have done if he had come out earlier is force rob Thompson to use Jose alvarado or forcing him to use Syrian domains or force him to use David Robertson or something like that. And maybe that compromises them a little bit tonight or tomorrow night. So, you know, because you saw alvarado got up and then they hit the homers and he sat down and then kind of brogden was the guy who got up. So it allowed rob Thompson to really make moves a little bit more freely. And it's always tricky. You know, you're trying to win this game, but you're thinking about other games and sometimes when you try to straddle the line a little bit too much, you don't achieve either rule. Yeah, and you led perfectly into my next question, how big was that for the Phillies that they didn't have to use any of their big relievers last night? I think it's huge because the way baseball goes these days, as you know, is three days in a rosa thing. You rarely see guys pitch three games in a row. Three days in a row. I know it's the World Series, but still, even if they go out there, they might be a little bit compromised. But now rob Thompson doesn't have to worry about that. That's gone. He can, he can load up his big guys tonight and tomorrow night. And then they get a day off. And then there are two games down in Houston, if necessary. So I think it was really big. And listen, Nick Nelson, in the 8th, inning when he walked a couple of guys, it almost forced Thompson to make another move and go to somebody else that he didn't want, but it was one of those nights where things worked out. They just played out perfectly for rob Thompson. The moments happened at the right moments for him to be able to make the bullpen decisions that he wanted to make. Now, how much fun is it for you to watch rob Thompson manage in this World Series? Because you guys speak the same language. It's fun to hear that every day. Yeah. So he's from a small town in southwestern Ontario or western stereo, I guess, Corona, Ontario, kind of across the border from Port Huron, Michigan for context for U.S. listeners. But he, as you know, is as down to earth a guy as you will ever meet, not just in baseball, like anywhere, life or 59 years of age, been a coach forever and been passed over for some managerial openings. But now finally getting a chance after Joe Girardi was let go and it's just and I love dusty just as much, you know, as you know, even though destiny as long as I have maybe longer, he's a great guy too, but you know I won't lie when I say that as a Canadian. It's kind of cool to see a Canadian managing in the World Series. No Canadian has managed in the, what we know is the World Series from 1903 on. There was a gentleman in the 1800s who did it before it was really the World Series. But to see rob Thompson getting this chance and to imagine what, you know, all the bars that he talked about the little Italian, the pizza joint, you know, up the street from where his family lived to know what all the bars in Corona and in sarnia and in Stratford and in all the places where he has roots in Ontario, the Canadian baseball community is not huge. It's not nearly as big as the U.S. baseball community, obviously, but there are a lot of people taking a lot of pride in really enjoying what rob Thompson is experiencing right now. And you know, good things you like to believe good things happen to good people and it took a while for rob Thompson, but it's great to see him getting this opportunity. He told us it's a cool story yesterday about his contract negotiations. I'll let you go through that. That was really fun to hear him because I thought it was a direct reflection of his personality. Yeah, well, you were the one who asked the question. So you deserve the credit. But he said, here's the best part. He goes, we were on the bus. I can't remember. Was it Atlanta or St. Louis? Like he doesn't even remember what city they were in. And he goes, and Dave dombrowski said, can you come to my hotel room? I'd like to talk to you about something. So he figured it might be a contract, but he didn't want to assume. And he said he went to Deborah's hotel room and they did the contract. And then I followed up and I said, wait a minute, you did it in one night. He goes, what night? We did it in 20 minutes. It took 20 minutes for him to sort out the contract. And within that 20 minutes was him wanting to make sure the coaches were okay. Are the coaches going to stay because I love the coaches. And that's rob Thompson in a nutshell. And you know, he wasn't going to fight about money. He's appreciative of the opportunity. I interviewed Bryson stout a couple of days ago. And I said, what does rob Thompson meant to this team? That was the whole question. He said, he's meant everything. Like he's meant everything. He's just got a deft touch and a way of making the players feel valued and putting them in good spots. You know, even a little thing, The Rain out changed the pitching plans. And I can't remember which among us who among us asked the question, you know, so what did you say to him?

"The other funny thing about that is sorry if this is where you were going, but there was so much talk about, oh, where do you air it in Austin nola's parents go? And so they had to what they did game one in New York and then game two in St. Louis during the wild card series. The news that Phil had broken his hand and Nick had been left off the Phillies division series roster. That dropped in the span of like 20 minutes. The other day and I thought that was very funny like the bizarro nola situation that they had going on. The problem is that as another older brother, sure, you give up the hit, but if you then break your hand afterward, you lose that subban robbery forever. He knows he's in your head, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I'm sure he didn't punch the locker thinking I am going to break my hand doing this, but there's no coming back from that. You could strike him out the next 5 times you face him, and he is still the guy who forced you to break your hand, punching a locker. What are we doing punching lockers with our pitching hand? Just kick the locker, break your toe. You're a pitcher. It's unbelievable to me that this happens so often. It's like they don't show bull Durham in schools anymore. Right? It's like, I so bull Durham in your school, Mike. This explains so much. I never broke my hand punching a locker? No. I've mentioned this before, but I continue to think that if I were running a team one thing I would do is just have padded walls everywhere where players might be pissed off after games, like pad the dugouts, pad the tunnel, pad the Clubhouse, just have no mental knockdown effect. That'll definitely not make people feel crazy in any way, shape or form. Well, they have not earned the privilege of having non padded walls because this has gone on for so long. It's ridiculous. It's preposterous that this keeps happening like there needs to be some sort of either like anger management trading. I understand these are highly competitive people. They're giving up hits to their brothers. It's like emotionally charged moments and there's a lot of testosterone coming out. I get it, but like, how do you not, there has to be some kind of like training for how to get your anger out express your emotions in a non damaging way because this happens so often. There's such a long track record. I don't know if it's as common in other sports as it is in baseball, but there's just so, so many, like if we could quantify the amount of war lost or salary lost to people punching and breaking hands and it seems like there has to be a better defense against this. I guess you can't completely pad every surface because you might have Zach police act just punching the mound at breaking his hand and you can't pad that, I guess, but it happened so often. There are so many cautionary tales and like people who've missed important postseasons and starts and cost themselves in their teams and they always like they seem sheepish and penitent after and they say, you know, it's embarrassing. I cost the team, et cetera. We have media training. Like we have people like conditioned to speak in cliches so that they never get themselves in trouble and say the wrong thing in the heat of the moment. Can we not also apply that to not punching surfaces with vital fragile parts of your body? I don't get it. But the issue is not just anger. It's all emotions as we saw with David Robertson this week. True. Yeah, there's a fairly long track record of that too, so David. Kendra's Morales. Yeah, I know. Like celebrating brace Harper's Homer and then he hurts his calf. I mean, I guess when you're in your late 30s as David is like maybe you're more subject to just pull in muscles, doing routine things, but sometimes I will see people who don't get hurt and I'm like holding my breath in the scrum at home plate when people are jumping around or like especially pitchers of pictures or like having hard, high 5s or like punching people and celebration it's like just be careful. Please everyone just be careful. Just have them all padded. And Ben's world, they play the games, and then as they walk off the field, they get bubble wrap. Vacuum sealed bubble wrap until the next game, at least for the high leverage months of the camera. Exactly. Ben's pouring over the joint drug agreement, seeing if hall paradox, the band substance. Anyway, just like a lot of relievers just ruled out for this round unexpectedly. Those two, Tyler Metz, who I guess wasn't going to be on the rest or anyway, probably, but also Scott, who was pretty important to the Yankees. They just had Tommy John surgery all of a sudden and they're just done. So that'll happen. There's no protection against that. None of this would have happened if they installed straitjacket anchors on the sleeves of Jersey. Exactly. That's all I'm saying. Just take some normal reasonable precautions. Listen, as someone who hurt his back draining pasta, like a month and a half ago, just twisting wrong and hurt my back. I can't really fault these guys. Does this happen? Come on. So you're recommending Nurse Ratched from one flew over the cuckoo's nest to be the next president of baseball ops in the mess is what I'm hearing from you. Yes. Can you guys imagine if the Dodgers had on which they did at one point and then they traded him for a reliever. If the Dodgers had Jordan, I could just, I mean, I

"Then there was a Rand light. It had everything. Including Mark Hannah hitting a three run game time Homer in the 7th inning. And then go ahead home run off of David Robertson in the 9th. So he was one of just a handful of players and met's history attending game tying home run in the 7th inning or later the game. And another game time or go ahead also in the 7th inning or later. And I love this list because you know that sounds like really incredible thing to happen and then here we go with this list. Curtis granderson, Scott Harrison, Todd seal, Robin Ventura, Willie montanez, Jim Gautam, and Jerry buch. I have to admit, I am not heard of Jerry before I look this up. So just a really fun less and a really crazy game. In Philadelphia and Sunday. Yeah, it really was. A big win for the mets. I've wanted to ask you about that race. I had a conversation with someone with the Atlanta organization over the weekend. Basically, my theory to him was that the braves getting punched in the mouth and back to back series by the mets, taking two of the mets taking two out of three and then four out of 5. I said to him, he said, that might have been the best thing that happened to your guys. Like they, they maybe, you know, is defending champs. Maybe that's what they needed. If you imagine this being like the 9th round of a 15 weighed heavyweight fight, does that make sense to you? Absolutely. I mean, we saw how psyched dansby Swanson was after the most recent series because they were told they got an ice cream machine and they won that series against Matt, but they really think motivation is real thing. When we saw this team come back, I mean, they were below 500 entering August last year. Go on to win the World Series. I do think motivation and having something in front of them like that. There's a really proven way for any team, but definitely this team. And the briefs are so good. I mean, it's really fascinating to see. I mean, the spark they've gotten for Michael here is the second and gone Grissom is just so, so awesome to say. Yeah, there's no doubt that the most watched first round series. You can book it right now is going to be the second place team from the national league. Right now that would be the braves and that team will be the number one wild card seat against the number two wild card scene at this moment. That would be the Padres. It could wind up being the Phillies. Maybe it'll wind up being the brewers, but that series will be a huge series because I feel like right now the braves and the mets might be the, you know, either the second is somewhere in the range of second best to fourth best team in baseball. The mets and the braves are two of the four best teams in baseball. You buy in? Absolutely. I mean, the braves went there on are so, so good. And I feel like we're all hoping that those two teams meet in the postseason. And finally, figured this out once and for all because that'll be really cool to see with all of these is going to Grom Scherzer everyone, you know? A 100%. All right, Sarah, thanks for doing this. And thanks for filling in last week. Thanks so much for having me. And thank you for that. I had so much fun with it. I really appreciate it. I think the most fun and Sunday's games

"I'm very proud, came to Taiwan to make unequivocally clear, we will not abandon our commitment to Taiwan, and we will proud of our enjoying friendship. Beijing considers the independently governed Taiwan to be part of China, with her visit Pelosi is now the highest ranking U.S. official to visit the island in 25 years. The White House said President Biden respects the speaker's decision to go. Democratic congressman Raja krishnamoorthi also is in Taiwan. Krishnamoorthi represents part of the west and northwest suburbs of Chicago is part of the speaker's delegation, visiting Asia. U.S. officials say more than a year of intelligence work led to the CIA drone strike that killed Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al zawahiri on the balcony of a home in Kabul, Afghanistan. The home was owned by the Taliban, and that violates part one of the Taliban's Doha agreement with the U.S. not to host terrorists. Terrorism analyst Tom akitas says the Taliban is more dangerous than Al-Qaeda because they allowed their promise already. They allowed him to come back on their territory when they made clear to the U.S. as a condition of withdrawal that they wouldn't do that. If the Taliban continues to allow people on their soil, the U.S. might consider over the horizon strikes. Makita says it would take something dramatic to get the U.S. back to Afghanistan. He says threats in the last several years have been from lone wolves. Since roe V wade was overturned at wait times for abortions have skyrocketed in southern Illinois, WGN's Jordan burnfield explains, that's because so many patients from out of state are coming to Illinois to have the procedure done. The Chicago Tribune reports that before the law was overturned and the procedure was legal nationwide, an abortion could be scheduled within three to four days. Now wait times are sometimes three weeks or longer in southern Illinois in the St. Louis region. Planned Parenthood says wait times have not gone up significantly in Chicago. Yet, Jordan burnfield, WGN news. Prior to the overturning of roe V wade Planned Parenthood of Illinois typically performed about a hundred procedures for out of state patients each month, but in the month of July, the first full months since the law was changed, Planned Parenthood says it had 800 procedures scheduled.

"Respect up from the Chicago Cubs. He also was with St. Louis this year. He had a one in three record with St. Louis in 16 games with the caps he was all in one. Bobby says taking his warm up is there a joy to make his initial appearance for the Philadelphia. Rob got his start back in 1949 where the Philadelphia athletics, then in 1952 Bobby was the most valuable player in the American egg with a 24 and 7 year for the Philadelphia athletics. That's where I thought I'd better give up. That's the year I quit. Yeah, right. I was wondering whether you considered coming back so you didn't end on that note. Send me a contract, but they wanted me to come back, but I said, no, Jean, I've had it, but I ended up going and getting the net dairy barn of Boeing. It would show us our catcher for the athletics. And we opened up a open up that business. So I had already started doing that. So I said, I'm done. I quit. Asking me to always pretty nice of him. Right. And guess the one thing we didn't talk about was your memorable All-Star Game moment where you struck out the side, right? Struck out, Stan Musial, stuck out Jackie Robinson and what the heck was the other guy's name that for the Giants? Isn't that something I can't even think of? Who the hell am I pitching? That's just I had a goddamn stroke. I sometimes I start talking in every my mind starts wandering. It was whitey lachman. Why are you laughing? Yeah, how can I forget that? I'm just getting old, I guess. You wanted to come back out for another inning, right? But then it started raining, I think, because we cut rain down. I never did get a chance to go. I don't know. I don't think I would ever caught call. Oh, he had his truck out by, I think, and the ball is nice. It's a nice career. I really had a great time. Yeah. Oh no, it's incredibly you played for so many great managers and with so many great teammates and face so many great teammates and just really an amazing career. You did so much. I think I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I really do. Well, I'm so glad that I caught you here. I didn't even mention you were part of the Lou Brock trade, too, right? That famous lopsided trade you went through. And then the night pitched to get used to it against the cubs, the new black was the first guy I pitched to. But we need to come to level the two of that game. Wow. What was the heaviest you ever wear you think during your career? Because I read a 139 pounds, which was that your actual weight or whatever. I still weigh a 138. Wow. Okay, you can fit into your uniform. That's great. I think the most maybe I don't know if the most important take for the luckiest thing I ever did was being picked up most valuable player in America. They got so I thought that was the most very nicest thing I ever had happened to me. Yeah, and to win all those gold gloves that I thought it was funny, there are a few years ago, a reliever named David Robertson in his contract, he had an incentive, you know, if he wins a gold glove, then he gets a bonus. Who is that David Roberts? David Robertson, yeah, who was on the Yankees for a while and he was on the Yankees. I didn't know that. Yeah, and I thought it was funny because, you know, relief pitchers never win gold gloves anymore, but you did so many times. So I guess you were just so good that they had no choice, but to give them to value, I'm lucky. I've been lucky all my life. I really had a great life. I think I'm the luckiest guy in the world, not Lou Gehrig, huh? It's you. They might have been a little lucky or maybe I don't know. I kind of doubt it though. I might have been the luckiest, I guess. I did read about a game where you said you were starting for the Philadelphia athletics and I think you had a complete game victory against the Yankees. And I think you said you might have thrown 350 pitches that day. That was hard against the Yankees and I guess that was a 52, I believe. I'm not sure if it's 14 innings and we'd beat them two to one. Man, I dykes when to take me out of that game four or 5 times because I had no I hadn't been on it for 5 of them. We kept getting out of double playbooks and they hit line drive, right at somebody, but I said, I know I'm both and wasn't quite so good. So I said, I didn't tell him that, but I said, I'm standing, this game if I can, if I can possibly make it. And I ended up we ended up we got to run into 14th ending and I am like I'm out in the end of the 14th setting and we beat him two to one. 300 pitches, I guess. Things are a little different today. Pictures don't work that way anymore, but did you like starting better than relieving? Or did you like doing both? Yeah, I really did like starring pitching. I like to start. I love this tour. I thought I was going to start a few more games with the Yankees too, but Casey kept me in the bullpen most of the time. I guess we started. I can't remember how many games I started with the Yankees of it. I think it was about 7 or 8 or 9. I'm not sure. They had some good starting pitchers. And they had also they had good pitching in the bullpen too. They didn't even need me. I don't think they had Louis Louis royal and bob Grimm and good pictures obtainable penny. Yeah, your first year in New York 57, you actually started 21 games. With the Yankees? Yeah, you pitched 30 games. 21 as a starter. So I didn't know that. I didn't know that I started that many games. Holy crap. Yeah. That's news to me. I really realized that I started that many games. I think whitey was having a little trouble waiting for was having a little trouble with his arm at one time. And I think that's why give me a chance to start, I believe. I don't know. I can't remember starting that many games. Were you someone who enjoyed the nightlife with mantle and Martin and all those guys? After a game I ever seen, I never seen whitey or yogi or Hank Bauer or mando for any of those guys. I haven't seen them till the next day. Well, maybe that's why you're still here at 9 to 6. Some nightclub, guess what I read in the paper? I don't know. Yeah, well. They were all good, but you guys are really good guys. Well, thank you so much for your time. I'm so happy I caught you here and I wish you a better health, whether you make it to the induction ceremony or not. I hope you stop mowing the lawn. My kids want to drive me up there, but I just can't go. I get dizzy and I'm sometimes I don't even know what the hell I'm saying. So I don't want to make an ass out of myself. I better say right here where I'm still living pretty good. Well, I hope that you continue to for a long time, but thank you so much, it was such a pleasure to talk to you, Bobby. Okay. Thank you for calling. I appreciate it. Thank you. Bye. All right, bye bye..

"On the men. Look, you know, it's not very often, especially in Sunday Night games or typically you have two of the best teams playing in each other. Where you go into a game and you feel like, you know, team a has no chance to be team B, but that's the way it felt. Like watching the double header play out on Saturday with a Dodgers dominated, even without getting that many hits, going into the game on Sunday, knowing walker Bueller is going to pitch, Marcus stroman, gets scratched, COVID related, we're assuming, and you just look at the lineups. Look at these teams. And the Dodgers are terrific team, incredibly athletic, so dynamic, great offense, great pitching, et cetera, but the cubs are really bad Carl. And I must say it was a reminder that when the cups are bad, it's very different than say when the Red Sox are bad. Like the home crowd, I think they understand. This team is going through a retooling rebuilding process. They're coming out. They're filling the stance. If the cubs have a big moment, they'll cheer if they have a bad moment. They kind of shrug their shoulders a little bit. I think they get what's going on. Well, yeah, that's a good question, because it's a hard one to understand. What's going on? We've just won a World Series. We had three huge name players. We're not willing to pay them and we decide maybe it's kind of a time to move on from Rizzo and Baez and Brian. But money shouldn't be a factor. We have a good manager, so, you know, that's an interesting one that people would understand what's going on. There are certain places. You know this very well. There are certain cities where that type of rebuild is like forbidden. You can't go there. And a lot of me thinks the cubs have kind of moved to that level. Like, okay, they're in that same conversation where bottoming out. And I know the Red Sox finished, but last three times a year in the last ten years, I get where they've been, but it didn't feel like they were totally tearing things down when I saw the lineup last night, and you don't see wizard minute or swindell that you're like, those are now the familiar names in the cubs lineup. That in itself seems a little bit strange to me. Yeah, Carl, I think that you're right, the cubs should be in that Echelon of teams that never rebuild or tank or whatever you want to call it, but that's where we are. And Tom Rick, it's the only one who can really answer this, but I'll absolutely believe that that's directly related to what happened during the pandemic, 2020, they had the real estate around the ballpark, which they invested in. They weren't able to cash in, according to folks with other teams I talked to, the cubs were certainly conveying to other teams that they were very cash strapped. And so last year, they trade off all those big names that cut their payroll way down. This year, it's going to be another cut down season. Wilson contrasts will be on another team when we get to the trade deadline. He's going to be dealt. You know, maybe Kyle Hendricks will be dealt. If he can pitch better than he has early in the year, wade Miley, who they picked up during the off season, he's going to be dealt the relievers who are actually doing well like a David Robertson. Those guys are going to get flipped the way that last year we saw Craig kimbrell, Ryan tapera, Andrew chaffin get traded. I think it's going to be another cut down here for the cubs. And next year will be the year you'll start to see them take a big step forward. That's disappointing. You know, I don't think it should be that way, Carl. Take a look at the cubs, run differential is I think -20. They scored 21 runs in one game. So you're -20 with a 21 run game. The Dodgers, on the other side, they're a plus 74, and they're blowing everybody else up. The Yankees are second and they're 25 runs behind where the Dodgers are. You know, you talked a lot Sunday Night about say a Suzuki. And it's like literally we're going to just spotlight, this is the one positive on this team. Great guy, big story, where's 27th for trout, sake and all that stuff that was shared with the executives, you know, he had to be sold on the weather and Chicago and the climate. How do you now bring him in and say, remember Kyle Hendricks, and remember Wilson Contreras? Remember we kind of promised this great city. This atmosphere and we won a World Series a few years ago, it's now your team like it's your team. How do you explain, how do you think that conversation goes? Yeah, and a year or two, it'd be interesting to ask him about that because he's still in the honeymoon phase and the story you're talking about. It was very funny to hear David Ross relate that to us in a pregame meeting where he said that when they were recruiting Suzuki, that was the big question they got back. Like, tell me about the weather because I don't want to play in the cold. And so Jed Hoyer generated all these charts on the weather and compared it to Hiroshima where Suzuki had been playing. In other words, look, it's not that bad. It's the same as you have there. And the weather as you know in the northeast upper Midwest, the spring has been awful. And so Suzuki, who is just early in trying to learn English a couple of weeks into the season, stop by Ross office, ductus heading the door and looked at Rossi and said, those charts you gave me, this was in English. Those are BS, except which is the first sign of English. And that's what David Ross said, oh, that was Jen Hoyer's doing. So they're getting a laugh out of that now, but you're right. I'm sure that Suzuki's watching this play out. I wonder, hey, what happened to this team around me? They do believe that he's going to be the centerpiece of the team as we move forward. He got off to a great start. It's clear the league is making an adjustments to him. Last night, walker buehler didn't even throw him strikes. He's like, I'm going to spin the ball out of the zone off the plate, and you're going to chase it. And he did. Top of the zone off the edge of the zone. And so now the question is Suzuki, will he make the adjustment, you know, by all accounts in a Mike Trout chimed in last night in a text message that he'd been talking to Shohei Ohtani, ohtani was talking about a great hitter is he'll figure it out. But Carl, they're going to need a lot of help around him. I was going to say. I mean, the other comparison when he talks about wearing 27. Mike Trout now has Otani and Rendon and ward around him and the angels. The angels are playing great. You know, a lot of the conversation buster so far this year has been about the two teams in New York..

"A new series from motor sport where I try to get top drivers and team bosses to reflect on what were the key moments that led them to where they are today. I'm Chris medlin, and in this episode, I'm joined by Kimi Räikkönen, who might seem like a man of few words a lot of the time, but can actually be an incredibly engaging interview, as was the case here as he recalls the one decision that really kicked off his racing career and how he nearly didn't go for it. He also explains why he turned down offers to stay in Formula One in 2010, was unhappy about an approach a year later, but then made the call to return in 2012, and it is led to him becoming the most experienced F one driver in history. Kimi, thanks so much for joining us on the motor sport magazine podcast. We're here to talk about big breaks in your career moments that led to you being where you are today and taking the path you did. Started out like a lot of people in go karts getting competitive. Were you just doing it for fun? Was it just enjoyment in Finland or was there ever a point where you suddenly thought, you know what, I'm quite good at this. I can make a career out of this. I'm sure there has to be many times but also on the other hand it's for sure it started out of fun. Part of doing something we used to do a little bit motocross when we were very young, like things about broader life when it was three and I was 5 or something like that. Doing up home. So more like destroying the car there. So I think our parents doesn't live harder. Thought that we needed to do something else than destroying the end of buying one core card. So like sharing for us and then we went to basically do it for fun and then got another one because my brother is quite a bit taller. So we had to chase the bed off and it was always a normal fight. So. I started from there, so I'm sure it started something to do and it was a family. Probably, I guess. And going around Finland after some years to memorizing yeah, but then I guess there's been a lot of different mindsets and how the years and on the way. But yeah, I didn't really think that obviously was happy to go outside of Finland rising, but you know we never really had much money and then obviously we had people helping and our customs helping and to be in a network to go to Europe to rise. But I said, did you start the most fastest way in Europe? But how different it is to Finland. But I think I realized quite quickly that all of the money is the one thing, but one way or another to come money and loan money from the bank to do to do in Europe and but then I also knew that I will never have a chance to say that we don't have the money to go out of the Coke or that was happy to get to the point that it didn't cost anything for us. So a good price for free and get some money from working in a cloud shop on the same time. So. That's basically how it's done. So you say that working the cart shop kind of helped you fund the career was not really fun, but on that point I had, I got everything for free from. So I got some cash money at a hundred. All week or whatever it was. Basically everything was free for me on that point. And that was 98. So basically the last year that I was doing content that I did on 99 also some, but. I didn't think that I had the chance to go after that to car racing, but luckily obviously my manager contacted and offered me a contract, but it took a while before I met her. I was kind of decided if I signed it on nothing to do with the contract itself, was more mechanic on that time fitness guy, my friend was obviously at a history and writing and in London. Not the most nice story of the normal story that often happens, especially on those tests that say 90s. Early 90s, maybe like this. But they paid on somebody and only the team disappeared and then the money went on the same way. So there was a lot of stories that you signed this, and then it will end up very badly and they send that. So I think. Deciding on that. And also I didn't understand this pretty much nothing out of the contract. So obviously never like on the floor live care would just put everything on the floor and left it there and looked at it and my food is and then looked at it again and it was kind of a dumb I don't remember exactly how long it took but then I decided to sign it. Then obviously that was the big change because then I had at least a plan or they had a plan for me. So without that for sure I would never have let's say gone out of the go catch. So that was to come and race formula Fords from the Renault four Renault. It wasn't really saying that what? Contract X years. And we'll pay you until you start making money. One way or another. So is that David Robertson? First, I didn't know about Steve. It was basically Dave. But then let's say when I did my first day wanted me to come to England to. Watch it got signed and everything. So obviously that was there. I didn't get enough. I wanted to do a test. And that was some formula for it. And then, I guess, when I got to test, one of the trucks tonight? Yeah. Yeah.

"Patino who they got for Blake Snell haven't seen him yet. Brendan McKay, remember him like the third overall pick lefty came up in 2019. He's not here. Obviously, Blake Snell is not here. He was traded to San Diego, but he was a part of the race. He was thinking about Tyler glass now. Injured, not playing. Brent, Honeywell, who destroyed us this year and was the number one pitching prospect in baseball like two years ago before all his arm surgeries. He's not here. They're doing it with mcclanahan, baz and drew Rasmussen. That's who's starting games one, two and three, and in the first of the three games, the raise just eviscerated the Boston Rhett made us look foolish like three days ago. So but it's not over, Chris sale pitches, Nathan of Audie pitches. The series could easily get more competitive. But the first game was a complete walkover. And yeah, it was rookie Shane mcclanahan and David Robertson and JP fire Ryzen two former Yankees at the end of the bullpen. The rage just picked up for shits and gigs. They're like, David Robertson's coming back from the Olympics. Great. Bring him in. JP fire Ryzen? Who was cut off the Yankees 40 man so they could protect Brooks kristy, I guess? Great. He's gonna go the final two innings. There are stadium as a joke. I hope they split time in Montreal, moving forward, but you can't deny that the players on the field really wanted that last night. And they were without like four quality arms. Like when you think of the raise, the arms you think of, they're not even there. They're not even pitching. Shane mcclanahan Shane baz and drew Rasmussen. If you didn't watch to raise game between August and now, you wouldn't know those people existed. And that's the one two three for a team that looked completely playoff ready. That's why people want to emulate the rays. Not because of their wage suppression. Because of their just the overload of pitching. And in case you didn't notice, Yankee fans are all we're excited. We're all high mighty that are minor league system was great this year. Like they want it every level, and that's wonderful. The raise made the playoffs or won the championship at every level of the minor leagues this year in 100 games in the major leagues. So Jesus Christ, the only negative thing you can say about the raise is that BJ Upton called them out for their arbitration practice last night during the game, which is really funny. And I hope he continues to do that. BJ Upton's cool. Quick quiz, you know, the BJ stands for and BJ Upton. Boss man junior. Boss man junior, not a real name. Bossman junior and that guy's awesome. So I hope he keeps putting the rays on blasts 'cause right now that's all I have. It's like, you know, sometimes you revel in your rival suffering..

"To ninety six range pretty consistently his whole life as long. As i've been scouting shane biogas Was the futures game. I saw him there. That was my most recent look. And he's different now. Like the uptick in strike. Throwing the boss has exhibited in twenty twenty. One might be real. I tend to take a longer view when it comes to strike out and walk rates for for hitters and pitchers but obas delivery is a little bit different. He's exclusively from the stretch now. Which is what the raise did with tighter glass. Now that got him into a more acceptable strike throwing range and enabled him to start. Obviously he still has some workload limitations. that he's been subject to when when healthy and i think that might apply to baas as well you know. He's sitting in the upper nineties with a better change than than the breaking stuff has been of late He was always like a four or five pitch guy and now it's really like two and a half three pitches. The slider utility for bars. I think has regressed. A little bit doesn't have that too plane break that plays as a weapon to the back foot of opposite handed hitters anymore really just has feel for a change up that puts away left into hitters now and i think that's fine as i'm sitting here trying to figure out what this guy's gonna to be a long term i've been reticent to move him to this point even though he's been utterly dominant up through now triple a split between double and triple a. This year just because i do have questions about the breaking ball utility ultimately. But that's what i said about the reds louise castio. Right like yeah. This is really a to pitch. Guy the fastball shape is suboptimal. Because it's like a lower slots and it just didn't matter there's enough action and velocity on that fastball and changeup is utterly unbelievable like that he still has one hell of a big league starting pitcher probably should have been in the top fifteen or twenty prospects in baseball when he was there so like. That's where i'm at with with baas long-term but yeah like with with the other names that are hurt in tampa. You mentioned chris archer. A nick anderson is rehabbing. Heat does not look like peak. Nick anderson he's been like sitting ninety two ninety three. David robertson is coming David robertson's look pretty good like ninety one. Ninety four with four pitches. Shane buzzes olympic teammate. Right yeah this is like this. Is the arm in the bullpen. That they lack without fully healthy nick anderson. So i think that yeah you could see this guy. Throwing high leverage innings for the race down the stretch here or In october would not surprise me if he or hunter green with the reds were just like comp their potential narrative arc over the next couple of months to like two thousand and three franscisco. Yeah you you mentioned green. He was who. I was gonna ask you about next to make preview your piece a little bit. What are you sort of expect there. 'cause i think the is interesting. You have green. And then i guess once we moved to the west we should talk about a guy who may be won't necessarily be coming up or hasn't yet in mackenzie gorby. Let's start with green. So what what should folks expect there because that redstone a thorough and a tight race with padras. It is funny. That in some respects pitching is so easy to evaluate because so much of it is quantifiable and yet it is still so volatile from an individual standpoint for reasons that are often like totally difficult to forecast and so with hundred green hundred. Green again has just been known about since he was a little child and was on the cover of sports illustrated as a high school kid and yet he's changed in significant ways three times over the last two years one of which we didn't even have a baseball season during which to evaluate him. So hundred green had tommy. John surgery his arm slot during the twenty twenty al-zeit coming back from tj. Was totally different. It had lowered considerably to the point. Where this guy was like almost directly over the top before his tommy john and then was like an extreme low three-quarter slot at two thousand twenty offsite and in talking to reds developmental. Folks about why that happened. It had to do with like his posture. His posture changed during the tj. Rehab layoff and then cova and his arm slot just naturally fell a whole hell of a lot. In a way that altered the shape of his fastball significantly and slider and in twenty twenty one in the minors. It's in between those two. So it's changed again and is now resting inbetween where it was before his tommy john but also above what it was in the at the two thousand twenty site. So what his fastball. Shape looks like now is more like a little bit more kerry to run and carry actually over the last couple of weeks in sourcing pitch data on green for this. Yeah this piece some writing on like the potential and al contributors down the stretch and in the playoffs. It's falling so he was sitting ninety nine to one hundred like sitting there guys at double a an early on in triple a. And now he's only. I hope everyone can hear me. Those are my fingers. Do air quotes. He's only sitting like ninety seven ninety eight now so i don't think that's pad interesting. It is interesting that it is starting to take down whether that's just because hey this the first time the hunter greens had a work load this large in a couple of years because he had a j. rehabbing that we had pandemic cancelled minors. Or if like maybe there's something wrong. I don't think so. He's still really hard. And you know like he's fastball. Slider right now i bet you in the reds bullpen. He'd be awesome with tj. Antone going down again and eating. Tj which is you know nominative determinism if there's ever been any of it then like yeah like hundred could be the reds bullpen tomorrow. I bet he'd be free awesome He still the his changeup is very much in the developmental stages. He hasn't needed change if he just needs a third pitch. The fact that we're talking about a guy with three quarters slot means that it may be a little bit harder to have to breaking balls with well demarcated movement And so i think change up development is ultimately an important piece of what he's going to be long term but in terms of the rest of this year like i bet. Yeah you through this guy you throw this guy in the reds bullpen. Tomorrow and i bet he's parked at you know one. Oh one to one or three with his adrenaline pumping and so we could see that in the playoffs. And it would be awesome. So make you just mentioned mackenzie gore. And i guess we might as well cover him here. Eric you recently documented some changes that he has made to which may explain why we haven't seen him in probably will not see him super soon. I don't know like. I think the padres are in a position where you might need him. I have lost track of signing jake. Arrieta i've lost track of which days gore has been throwing on in which big league starter that coincides with for the for the padres and darvish came has come back and make a couple of start since the he went down with a back injury at star here in arizona that i attended. But like you know mackenzie gore. They reworked his delivery. And it's pretty significant. The pacing of totally different folks should go to To test terror.

Death like david. Robertson pitched very well for the united states in in the olympics. Got himself a minor league deal and is getting ready to help the to be very very effective middle reliever for a raise team. That definitely could use that middle relief help if their starters can't go as long as we talked about because they did lose glass now they don't have last night anymore and that means they're going have to be creative with their pitching staff that they don't have that as i'd like i said last week like i said my last episode. I think that the rays are going to have to do. Sort of like a York cleveland indian style of Go of choosing how to play playoff games in that in that sense a number three. I have the astros if you like. This one's a little self explanatory The astros are seventy two and fifty. they're only they. They're i mean they're just really good like i can't i can't say anything bad about a really good I i. I think that they are very fun to watch the only team that they're really worried about right. Now is the a or is the as and yeah the as are only a couple of games back behind him. But they're six and four out of their last ten and they've won tuna row. They're playing seattle right now at home. So that that they're gaining they're. They're probably gonna gain a couple of games on seattle now and like with oakland. The oakland is playing very well and they're winning games that they blakely weren't expected to but they're still doing very well at number four. Excuse me at number two. I have the san francisco giants the giants right now. They are still leading division with a seventy eight and forty four record their seventy three out of their last two and they're losing to the as right now they lost to the as or they lost two games to the as and have given the dodgers enough wiggle room. They've given the dodgers wiggle room. Now dodgers are only a game back from that from first place now. They are ten and a half games up on. Cincinnati and san diego but like and both of these teams are going to be making the playoffs in the number one team. I have is the dodgers. Just because of how good that they'd been over the last ten games and really went in there on a game winning streak like nobis better in baseball than this team right now. I mean the yankees are also on an eight game winning streak too. But i mean i'm not taking anybody over the dodgers right. Now that i feel like that is pretty self explanatory.

Era but the team era for team usa over the course of forty five and one third innings is two point one eight so the pitching has really been the carrier for the usa. Say they've been excellent and just only allowing eleven runs over the course of forty five innings forty six strikeouts to only twelve walks as a staff again. Joe ryan he's been fantastic eight strikeouts only one walk so the starters there now. I don't know who lines up to start the gold medal game. If it's joe ryan i assume it will be if not. It's certainly looks like nick. Martinez would be next on the line. Or scott casimir would be the two guys potentially pegged to start so looking at some of the other lineups. Let's look at the dominican republic. No they had a few ex major leaguers on their squad. So let's look at how they've been performing so far this year or this tournament for the olympics. You have jose batista. He's hitting one forty three. He is only two for fourteen with one double in one in three total basis. So he's been struggling for the dominican republic. You have milio bonifazio. Only hit in one fifty four as he is too for thirteen on the tournament. So the dominican republic as a team only hidden their offense as certainly let them down even though they're playing for the bronze-medal on the pitching side of things again. They've gotten some good outings. A couple of starts angel sanchez. On hill sanchez scoreless over five innings rove vow dez. One run over five and a third and then you have danielle radius. Who's giving up two runs over four and two thirds innings as well from the starting pitching side of things so a team. Era of three five six for the dominican republic looking at israel who's been standing out for israel as they overachieved by winning a game earlier in the tournament. Shoutout to mitch glasser. He went seven of seventeen hidden. Four twelve as well as ryan lavarnway hitting three fifty seven for twenty during the tournament. Here so a nice tournament for them and then looking at japan's roster as we face off against japan in the gold medal game who are some of the names to watch out for. You have takia kyw. Hit and five hundred. He's five for ten high jato sakamoto hitting three eighty nine seven for eighteen.

"And his motion his grandfather traveling north Going to his grandfather's community and his trap line, a place where indigenous people live off the land hunt fish. And trap and it's just the grandfather teaching the grandchild about life, life in the community life on the land and the connection between the two. The book is written by David Robertson, who is Cree and it's based on a trip that he took with his late father up until he was nine years old. He lived mostly on the land. And about three years ago, he asked me to take him up to his trap line one last time. End in over 70 years and I've never been there before, And so we went together and spend the day on the land together. And it was this homecoming. It was this feeling that we both along there together and David Robertson's book, The Little Boy and his motion. Take a motor boat down the river. See all kinds of things, Little boy says on their journey. Beaver dams, eagles flying overhead and paintings on rocks. See Blue water turned to black. That's when Muslims eyes light up. He points to a boulder by some thick trees. That's my trap line, he says. In the middle of this, clearing that surrounded by all these beautiful trees and vegetation, is is this huge black boulder? That was almost like a landmark that notified, you know, families that they had arrived to their home when they went to the trap line is this place where they set up tents, and they cover them. The spruce bows and Stay there for a few months before branching off into other trap lines in the Bush that the family would live on until the water broke when they were able to, you know, bring the crews back home. I think it's important that people recognize that It's still a way of life to a lot of indigenous people, and it's an important environment way of life. The illustrations in this book were made with pastels on paper and then digital collage. Julie fled, who was swampy Creon Red River. Maiti Illustrated the story and for me, land is always the starting point, so the landscape always sets the tone. Um, from the color systems to the feel of the book. Overall, it's always a guide for me or it has been up to this point. The land is depicted in lots of muted blues, dark greens and warm browns. Pops of bright red in a sweater or yellow socks on a clothes line. The illustrations are cozy, almost like a campfire. David Robertson and Julie fled, had worked together before and he says she was really the only illustrator he considered for on the trap line. But I was writing. I was picturing Julie's work, and it helped inform, I think The beauty of the story, and it's funny because with both books when we were alone and on the trap line initially, she said, for both books didn't have time. But I understood because she's so in the band and she's so busy. Yeah, I mean, e didn't think I could visit him and Them. You know, I read it, and, uh, It was about his dad and I needed to do it. I adore his family and dad and I thought No, this is this for his dad. I've got to put this in somehow, in a lot of ways. You know, Julie still good at what she does. I don't really have to tell her to do anything. You know, She just She just She just does. This incredible work. I don't think it's a lot of it was illustrative direction in the management for me to her. You know, I think Julie was given some references of images from That trip I took with my dad. Yeah. I mean through a lot through pictures and video and just really Really looking a lot. Whenever I'm making a book. I'm I always talk to my dad. Whenever I have a question about the land or anything that I might have it not experienced directly. He's always been there. He's been a guide and a compass and He's always so happy to share and connect on this and I've learned so much about his experiences in our family and our stories. And while I was working on this project, my dad's health was declining, but he was still able to talk. About some of his experience. And, Yeah, he passed just before it was finished. And then I think it was a week later. And David's dad, so, Yeah, it was the last story I wrote that my dad read. Actually read it to him. I'm pretty sure you saw very close to finished Art. And so it's just I'm so grateful. That he was able to read that book and see your work. He loved it. My dad was a man of few words. But when you spoke, people listened, and it meant something and I think it really meant a lot to him, too, that I did it with Julie. Because him and Julie, you know, really connected. And when they met, and my dad sometimes called, heard his little daughter to me when we're talking. Yeah, and I feel the same and so connected to his Beautiful family, and I wish we would have all come together, But maybe we did through the book. So I think there could have been a tendency for a grief to creep into the story, and it didn't Actually feel that there's a lot of beauty. It is a book. It isn't about that lost, but it's about that gift that our fathers gave us. It's a celebration of life. That honors to really incredible people. David Robertson.
Cree author David A. Robertson on writing everything from graphic novels to a memoir
"I want to go to my trap line one last time he says. I cannot breathe. I know he hasn't been to his trap line for almost seven decades. We've been on a journey as father and son for thirty years, and for the first time, it feels like we've found our destination. And I think maybe we've been headed there all this time. Whatever choose exists between us. The end of our journeys in front of us. That's David Robertson reading from Blackwater, family legacy and blood memory. One of three books he has coming out this fall. To say, he's prolific is a bit of an understatement. The cree writer based in Winnipeg started writing in two thousand and nine and has already published more than twenty titles from the Governor General Award Winning Picture Book when we were alone to his graphic novel series the reckoner to his first novel, the evolution of Alice published in two thousand fourteen it seems like he can write in any genre for any age group. David Robertson is my guest on the show today. Thanks so much for being here, David All. Thanks for having me. It's a pleasure. So this month you published your most personal book to date a memoir called Blackwater family legacy and blood memory, which we just heard a bit from. And it chronicles the story of Your Dad's returned to the family trap line Norway House creed nation in northern. Manitoba. So first off most people wait until they're a lot older to write a memoir So why did you want to write now? Yeah. That's a great question and there's there's probably a bunch that goes into that answer. One of them is that you know I've been talking about my dad and I for the last eleven years ever since I was a published writer I found that when I was public speaking all of my talk somehow came back to my father and I and and he's played such a big role in. My own development my understanding of you know who I am as cree person. There's one time I was giving this lecture at University of Manitoba couple years ago where I was the same thing talking about my life in my father and our relationship, and then a professor came up to me after and said, you really have to write this down and so. Money as a writer I'd never thought about writing actually my own story and that really kind of jog something me were. I decided that that was something I. needed to do. The other part of it is that you know my father at the time was declining I mean he was still himself and he was still my dad but he we knew that our time with him a short it was getting shorter and I really wanted to start working on this because it was something I always wanted to do I wanted. To document his life and and our relationship the teachings he gave me for myself and for my family and so all of this kind of came together and made me feel this agency to write the story now, and certainly when we went to the trap line together two years ago, it felt like the framing for the story had happened because I think it was where we were journeying to. All these years together. That's that's where we were going to and so when we got there, it felt like the right time to document everything that had happened between us and in our own lives and teams like such a special trip to be able to go on. Yeah I mean it was I I. Don't know if I could even put it into words. I. Tried my best in the book but it was blackberries in the title of the book and I really did feel that blood member was something that played a big role into why Blackwater why this trap line my dad grew up on felt home to me as soon as I stepped off the boat onto the land. I just felt like I'd come home and I, know that watching dad, you know amble up the inclined towards this big boulder in the middle of this clearing I know he felt like he was home to it was incredibly emotional intensity emotional moment for us and it turned out that it was the only time it could have happened because you know dad passed away just this past December and it made me even more grateful for spending that time with him and being able to write. About that experience through his words in my own and did you learn anything you know anything about yourself while writing a memoir I know that you know when you when you go into material like this, you sort of have to dig back in sort of excavate your own life and sort of reexamine things maybe in a new perspective did you learn anything about yourself? Yeah. I think anytime you revisit your past and learn more about the people who came before you. You're inevitably going to learn more about who you. Are you know I've always said and I've learned from my dad, the process of you know understanding ourselves and who we are that journey starts well, before we were born starts with understanding who came before you and know certainly in this book, it talks about my grandmother and my dad and their lives before I was born and my dad's after I was born and all of that plays into forming a sense of identity. It helps to you to understand more about yourself and there's things in even researching this book that. I learned that kind of. Forced me to re contextualize my life in my identity. No. When I was a kid I, always believed that my parents drew grew up intentionally raising me to be non indigenous to protect me from. You know what they felt would have experienced growing up in the city in. Winnipeg. As a cre- kid and in the process of researching this book and a lot of that research was just sitting down with my dad spending hours with him talking he said that's not true. I. I never wanted to tell you what it meant to be original. But I never told you that I didn't want you to be my goal was to model that for you. But to give you the tools that you need to figure out for yourself and one of the things that always sticks with me as you said, how to teach you how to be crea- you are cre-. So nothing I can say can make you more or less cre-. Your journey is defined what that means. For Self and his role was to kind of guide me in a way to that understanding and I think he did that.

In these but guess extra Wynton Marsalis sits down with Kurt Andersen to talk about his love of classical music. He says it all started with a chance encounter on a New Orleans Streetcar when he was just a kit. So guy went into the back of the STREE- rijkaard white trump'll from college. which was unusual for a white guy? DOOKIE saw my trumpet trumpet case. Weight as a kid in the in the seventies. You're you're you're sitting in the back of the Streetcar. 'CAUSE 'cause that's the wire you didn't have to was not required that's where you were just was a mandated. You you wanted to sit there. Yeah but it was an area that was not populated with white. Gotcha so this student for. Some reason stepped across those lines and put his trumpet case down by mine so I was not dead daddy to see him. Everybody of course started looking at him and he was insisting on. Tell me something I was kind of not as friendly and fuzzy as I should have been but then he gave me an album just absolutely ran. mcgurn said check this album and it was an album of a trumpet. Player named Maurice Andrey and I thought you know classical music okay. Okay man the famous French but I didn't know he was a dead time.
