"Nine hundred ninety eight ricky goody air versus bartolo cologne that one lasted twenty pitches but apparently the record was set last year brandon belt versus hymie berea of the angels. He had a twenty-one pitch battle before finally flying out now. Are those really the ones sirri remember. No i mean i remember kirk. Gibson's homerun off dennis eckersley in the world series when he hobbled up to the plate limping gene had a bad knee foul off a couple pitches then of course hits the dramatic game winning home run but random belt twenty-one pitches. That's pretty good that that is pretty good next one's from sterling who writes hey dave only a dozen days since the trade deadline. Is there a team or two that would already take a redo in your opinion yeah a good question. I mean the braves picked up those relievers. They've struggled. I don't think they would redo it. You know and they have time to straighten themselves out. I think the team that might have wished they he had made another move is the minnesota twins they added sergio romo but they probably should have added another reliever or maybe a starter <hes> their offense offenses fine nelson cruz like he's going to be at least he's gonna play through his wrist injury but i think the twins especially with the way cleveland playing minnesota ownership added another pitcher from corey ru kurt hope. I pronounce that crackle etymologists. If i didn't is boba shit going to have the same hitting trajectory as manny machado machado came into the league as doubles machine but turned into a thirty one hundred guy while you're the blue jays fan. What do you think an well great note from last night. Which i'm sure is available that you have in front of your in as well but bogut has fifteen extra base hits through his first fifteen games which is more than anybody in major league history i. I don't think he's going to be a thirty home run guy. I think he's probably going to be more on the twenty range but everybody's hitting home runs nowadays who knows yeah. He's not very big physically. They'll certainly certainly not you know machado. I don't know if he's gonna have that launch. Angle like you said to hit a lot of home runs. That's good. We don't all need as we just talked about. Everybody doesn't have to hit home runs. I hope this shit keeps this style which is attacked the ball. Put the ball in play hit. It line drives hit three hundred and he still has enough power. I think twenty homer guy he he looks fantastic and finally from our friend cross fit school of sweat back for more predicted to the yankees would mash their way to a world series and they certainly mashed yesterday cross fit school sweat rights. I know it's each team's perogatives to retire player jerseys however they see fit but why would the giants wait so long to do it for will clark. It's now like his career has changed since retirement so my my understanding was the giants only retired jersey numbers for hall of famers well then last year they retired barry bonds is number. He's not a hall of famer so that kind of opened the door so we'll clark. Jersey retired pretty good explanation. You go two days. He's in a room. We've heard from cross fit school a sweat. We want to hear from everybody out there. That wasn't as podcast all you have to send a tweet in use the hashtag bleacher tweets send him in all right well dan. Thanks thanks for letting me host this week..

"Is going to get creative in some way. Kick. I don't want either player at ten years like most Yankee fan seven keep in mind. I don't think they are going to break the Bank before. Aaron he's going to be a free agent after the, and you know, some way somehow ellsbury contract is gonna come off the books, even if they don't trade him after two more seasons. I don't see how you feel. I think he came coming Yankee Stadium. I think he played centerfield. But Jay said judge said he'd play centerfield. I know I know. But then again you have that high on the minor leagues. If he does pay out you're not going to be paying a lot of money. So I guess my biggest concern is the left handed power. I was without Machado. But I I just weird next to she has very little left handed power would have come back. So maybe August, July, whatever the only the only lefty bat, you really have is Hicks when he when he's hitting that believe. And Gardiner if you could send him a power again. Gonna be a role playing there for experience. You know? Maybe he'll do the young guys the whole bit. I don't think it's brought him back. But I don't think they're going to be very. On either one of the. We'll see what happens. But you know, if you get one of those guys offer particularly for five years if you will do it. It's gonna be interesting. Retrain retraining can open those two guys you're going to be going to some you know generic camp. Unsigned. It's a real mazing. I really really is. I never thought we got to believe they haven't gotten to deal yesterday while of the team that they want to go to there's no mention of anything. No, no hint. That's strange for. No nothing other than Harper's met with the giants. I mean who knows nobody seems to be offered any money just say eating. Well, let's go to Mike in Vermont. Mike, what's happening? Warning. Tony great show. First time, I've called you. And I really enjoy your your take on sports. But really appreciate it. Welcome aboard. Yes, sir. Bill James said that Frank Robinson should not have been the MVP. Earl Wilson should've got it in nineteen sixty six you have you seen that? No Earl Wilson the pitcher. Yep. Built James who get a chance to only look it up Bill James. He's a cyber Titian guy. And he the war stat he said that Wilson had a better war. So he should have been the MVP. Dennis extra Eckersley, another red sock employees somewhat. He tweeted to shut up. So I. Dennis eckersley. I'm looking. Sixty sixty six. Yes, sir. It was thirteen and six with a two five. Sixty six zero Wilson was eighteen and twelve what am I looking at it? They get the Earl. American league. Okay. What was with the Tigers when they went to the World Series in in sixty eight correct? I'm saying in nineteen sixty six when Robinson was the MVP James. He, you know. Okay. Sixty six he with Boston and Detroit eighteen eighteen and eleven with a three point two four innings. You can't you can't go against some somebody who won the triple crown. Wilson was okay. Out two hundred and two forty to sixty four eight hundred eighteen and eleven with five and five with Boston and thirteen six with Detroit. I don't think that gets it. Let me real quick. Let me see how how young. Good Lord Novo society on. Well, let's go to Mike in east Rockaway, Mike you're on the fan. Hey, how are you? And the coffee in Myrtle Beach, and listen to teashop the temperature. It's going to be chilly today. Tomorrow yesterday was seventy four days going to be like a twenty degree difference. I got my my sweatshirt on to back to back. Right. Today, the last forty five minutes or so, and I'll tell you what. Daddy. Mike Robertson, wrestling piece. I saw him. What I was the last game sixty nine series. We I made the catch we paid eight dollars for standing room. Only tickets at that game and someone brought up revert Oklahoma day before too. Nineteen sixty eight you're in the ninth grade. I was in the eighth grade when they filled in the movie couple I was at that game. The first time I so Roberto Clemente. And the last time I saw him was seventy one where they had those spandex uniforms. That was that was a year before he died humanitarian effort, but I'll tell you what going back and a lot of classic games. It was it was good times. And as far as the contracts go, you've touched upon its long term contracts with Machado and and hop up. Nobody has signed him at all and nothing wrong with that. But why not like you said a five year contract? That's probably trying to figure out. I mean, you know, when you tell your client. We're getting hunt ten years and three hundred million and people on anywhere near that. You you you gotta what's all fallback back. You probably didn't even have one. Maybe. Who set the bar wasn't the owners. It was the agents. There you go. Now, you gotta deal with the age. And you know, what is the last thing? I said the friends what do you think Yankee fan playing catch? You know, what's going to be the GM for life something? It's like he's been there. Twenty some odd years last year and could have very easily. I mean, everyone saw what they needed frontline starting pitching. But we'll see what happens. I think the Yankees got enough firepower that they don't need anymore. Home run. It is that's for sure. But touting I'll let you go. I said it a couple of years ago. It's not like a one two combination with you and richardneer back to backs up, right? Right. I appreciate I appreciate look. I think I think the Yankees are done for now. Hey, Hank's house, and we're not we're done. We're done. You.

"Got Dennis Eckersley involved able to get Steve Stone to do some stuff from the White Sox. And then I ended up like everybody around the Rangers I was able to get into. I got a hundred Rigas to talk about the what was he said the Ono Stephen shell to say that they tricked Padres into thinking that the skittles were the red dots babies or something like, don't remember exactly what the story was like. But like I got like hall of Famer Pudge Rodriguez. I got him to say like what we were eating babies like baby dots. So. So I think maybe like I was just sort of prone to that level of baseball adjacent weirdness. Anyway, because my background was in music, and when I started doing the beat writing thing, I knew that if I just tried to be like a straightforward beat writer, I was going to be behind like, I'm not just going to jump in year one and be as good as to your soul of Evan grant and Jeff Wilson at their job. So I had to kind of like, okay, what will bring to the table like? Well, I definitely have heard of drill on Twitter, like. I have a little bit of a more of a bent towards abstracts humor than these guys end. So maybe there's an audience for that and you know, maybe I can just write like these vary. Like I love Roger in jail. I never know how to pronounce his name of angel. I think angel. Okay. That's that's good kissy. He is an angel. Yeah, I love greeting him. Can I? Can I take some of these? You know, the writing style that I had for for music or songs like apply that. And so I think just being at the lettuce has allowed me to be to sharpen that a little bit and maybe not get so abstract in places because I'm worried like, okay, well, Ken Rosenthal, my actually read this alike. Maybe. Hey, let's ease up on some of the references to like bojenka horsemen but. But then also like just be yourself in the best version of you that you can be so so got as far as the athlete goes. I've been, it has exceeded my expectations. I talked to a couple of the other guys in there like however good you expect that this is going to be. It's like it's better than that. So at a annot that you're right, unbiased in, certainly if I was not happy with it or if I had beef, not like I'm gonna jump on here and be like, oh, the athletic socks. Leadership is terrible and hope they don't fire me for saying this. No, but I, I would probably just say less if I was unhappy with it and don't like, I'm, I'm, I'm super happy that they hired me. I feel really, really lucky. So. Good. Yeah. And I know that you are working on collecting links from all the ethnic baseball writers of their favorites? Yes, this season. So that'll be up maybe by the time this podcast is up. I don't know, but sometime soon. Yeah. Yeah, right now, as a matter of fact. So Goethe reading material for days. I guess if you haven't read it. Halsey among there's near nearly two hundred links in Mississippi like off-season bookmark it, and you can just read about baseball all off season. Yeah. And you can, of course read Levis reading on baseball as well. At the flick, I guess the ethnic gals Fort Worth specifically, and you can find him on Twitter at three to where he goes viral and then mutes everyone every now and then. So thank you for coming on. Of course..

"Straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. So I'll said, so the guest we're efforting is right Thompson, who has a phenomenal piece in ESPN the magazine this week about Dale Murphy and how there's this whole generation, particularly in the southeast who believes domer- for should be in the hall of fame. The baseball hall of fame induction ceremony is Sunday. It'll be Jack Morris, Alan Trammell Vladimir Guerrero who mentioned earlier who would be wiffle ball player. Jim Thome who'd had a can o Jim Thome e who should be on everyone's all time. Looks like you should be on your softball league team Griffin, rip Chipper Jones. And Trevor Hoffman. And we're in the funny Marty when you get to certain age, it's like the guys you watch their entire career another. Yeah, it makes me feel really old. Like what those guys are going in. The hall of fame, right? Trevor Hoffman was the I was he liked the first real closer. I guess maybe Dennis Eckersley might have been the first real closer, but Hoffman was at the guy that I remember that came in and just therm nothing but smoke. Yeah, and but then like got crafty and he's of the group. He's probably the most is numbers are crazy, but of the group. He's the one that people seem to have the most reservations about, but he was there man like there was who else were the lease? Myth lease myth hall of fame, John rocker, John rocker. John rocker lasted a second, wasn't he closer though? He was starter was who's closer goose Gossage hit Googlers. Goose was the first goose was the first one of my life that was just was like just came. Just came in throwing smoke and. Yeah, but those closers were the best, but then but then you had the guys that were like great and then weren't so great. Like Bruce, Bruce suitor closer, Billy Wagner. Billy Wagner was the man son? Yeah, Billy Wagner grew up near me. He's from tazewell Virginia. Went to Fareham college. The little teeny, tiny Fareham college, of course, Moran Rivera, but goose was the one hour reduces the one that came along and I thought and then other ones, though there's some other ones that are scaping me right now that. When unique personalities when we look like maybe not kids. But as we were getting on towards high school college, they were some guys, I'll think of it as we go. I'm still working on joslin. Trying to think. Francisco rodriguez. I mean lease myth, I love Lee Smith lease. Myth is a really good call man. He's tall. Yeah, right. Eckersley was the guy probably though. Yeah, see. I'm so old armor when he was was a decent starter, but. Why didn't he? Yeah, you break. I want to Braise about small malts basically two different careers, which is wise in the hall of fame so. So bring up del Murphy because of the peace right Thompson road and full disclosure, I'm sitting in my office right now with a framed portrait of del Murphy, like standing in front of the American flag, holding his golden glove. And so, yeah, if you grew up in the part of the world we did and this is the super station era. And I, I knew so much about the cubs and the Braves, both because you watch them on television every day. You watch cubs in the morning. Watch brazen night. I went to a cubs cubs Braves game one time with the church youth groups that with girl, and I thought she would be impressed at my overwhelming knowledge of both teams and all scare. I mean, because if you watch both of those teams every single day all summer long, you know, every summer of youth it became will you know when Rafael Ramirez the plate and I'm going well, you know, he really struggles on so.

"And ruin their confidence in a heartbeat this is one of our best players and there's no need to panic over a bad night against clayton kershaw and i don't care if it's a bad night against any pitcher and this is this game is really really hard our guys in in in the dodgers make it look really easy but it's a hard game and there's a ton of failure involves so i believe in players and i specifically believe in george and tonight as and as an example why he wasn't broken his swings not bad he's not gone for the series he he had a bad nine came back with one at one of the best minds and george bring awarded their confidence and that faith with a three for five night and you could just see it it was so much fun seen the ashes feeling they okay we climbed out of his whole and now you got to come to us undefeated in the postseason yet dodges we know you three one of the road but now you got to come to our building and deal with advance and we get three in a row starting on friday did see the looks on their faces when they were even mccotter that albatross was something to behold because in the sixth landing when they're down three one there are a lot of guys ready to hang their heads and then just in berlin was having an entity offense finally sort of any 8th 9th 10th 11th any for houston in front of you not talked about it man at bottom six to out free to count to tailor enver lander gets squeezed i should have it should have been as dennis eckersley won cetera ring yet hamma does the strike at was and then greg figure comes up man bama homerun he knew it right when he hit it three one deficit and i thought the game was over i really did an but these guys rallied found a way to get to a dodgers and that was literally untouchable for thirty plus endings and the other questionable move by dave roberts bringing janssen and forty six out save something he has not asked his closer to do for.

"The years old and that there wouldn't be something better than that two thousand sooner pretty close but he gibson moment off of dennis eckersley was it that was the last time the dodgers were in the world series now they come in hefty favorites pitching well hitting well getting contributions up and down the line up there home they've had rest the cubs exhausted their pitching staff we saw area at a lester hendricks jose kintana they all had to pitch wednesday and thursday to try to put away the nationals they're not rest they just travelled across the country to play a game tonight game one there's no reason you look get this series coming in and say you know what the cubs should win there's no reason it should happen none but every ounce of pressure in my opinion is on the dodgers their rotation lines up well kershaw hill darvish alex would likely in game 4 no reason or you're going gonna give me reason though that is a dodger fan it oh you liked him to that nationally tape is there a reason we should be concerned yeah because the three teams had had the most pressure going in at pressure is huge in baseball because the regular season doesn't matter which you these records lineas willie at the record this win streaks it doesn't matter it's like the patriots even though it going to break the record now you'll lose in the super bowl so it didn't matter you gotta finish it off and at the indians didn't get it done the nationals didn't get it done two n okay they want to playoff series ever so and now you got the dodgers will last one standing who has all that pressure to not make what happened in the regular season later ups and downs when the ups were really great old downward down but hey they add a streak on there were they looked unbeatable so the pressure is on them as it was on the nationals in and those who did not get it done and now you got the defending champions at you gotta take out so yeah they'd we'll see if one of these three teams go handle intense pressure of not just letting what happened in the regular season go by the board cubs have got to be exhausted right the flight was diverted last night i was the word of the land in.
