And then you had the big 10 season was starting and it was. Ah, It was a wild time, but ah, somehow we survived All that, and Uh, I can say with pardonable pride to speaking of Jack that I remember well, the day that he came to me and said he had just gotten a call from New York that he'd been Already ended up Hall of Fame. Cooper's term. And he said. You've done Everything from me over the years. He said. Christ you one more big favor. And I said it clerks, he said. Did you write my speech? And I said I'd be an honor.

And I had You know, I started out with I feel the day I command 60 ft six inches tall, which is the distance from the band of home plate, and he really liked that. And I had the line and era but Uh, in my dreams In the fantasy of my dreams, I have imagined that I would one day broadcast and all Chicago world Syriza's Cubs against the Sox. Syriza would go seven games with the seventh game going in the extra innings. And then being suspended because of darkness at Wrigley Field, and I had the line the planes, the trains, the calves of Busses. Carried me millions of miles through the years to get me where I most wanted to bay. The ball game. Said there were those who said that even if I never got to Cooperstown My suitcase probably would. And fortunately, we've arrived together now. The thing Alex. Remember Dave Is it when that speech was over? And we were all sitting there. And what King can't give a speech. He comes off that platform. And some of those old time writers came up and slapped him on the back and said. Number Dick Young and some of those people from New York had that may be the best single speech ever delivered A Cooper, Stan and Jack said, Go tell Jack Rosenberg because he's the one who wrote it. Now how many people will you get that would do that? And you see all these years have gone by Jack has gone me rest in peace. But I still remember And I told that story countless times.

"He always attributed that to more than anything to his ability to not have any major arm injuries until the very end of his career. Let's go to Ralph on the Upper East Side calling in on line six. Hi, Ralph. Thanks for calling all of it. Hi Upper West side, actually. Um But I remember him for something. Other than baseball directly after winning the world Syriza's, he was quoted as saying. Look, um if the Mets can win the world Syriza's The United States. We can get out of Vietnam. You know, which says something about him thinking beyond Young baseball and at about the world. Well, thanks for calling in. Yeah, Bill, can you elaborate a little bit more on Tom Seaver's thoughts on politics and off the field. Yeah, well, the that was interesting because actually he made that statement, um, before the world Syriza after they had won the pennant, and then we're going to the world. Syriza's And what happened was One of the antiwar groups got ahold of that statement, and they put it on pamphlets that they were handing out Che Stadium before he made his first start. Against the Orioles in the world serious that year. And tug. McGraw, one of his teammates, who likes Seaver had also been in the Marine reserves. Showing him, the statement showed on the pamphlet and Seaver took one. Look at it and He was not happy about it. He had made the statement, but he didn't want it to appear as an anti war statement, which they were using it for, and he was really upset about that. He tore up the statement and just tore up the pamphlet and then just went on with his day. But what happened was When he was when he was in high school. And, uh and even before that little league he was always the smallest guy and his team. He was only 59. £160 when he got out of high school and because of that, Even though he was a really good picture and using the best pitcher on his team. Hey, didn't have that overpowering fastball yet and The word No scholarship offers for him on, he told his parents after senior year is is if I can't get into college. On a scholarship offer. I will not go to college on your dime. I'm gonna have to figure out something else to do. So he graduated from Fresno High. And with no scholarship offers, And so he went to work that summer and his father's raising company for his father's raising company. And then he realized that Vietnam was coming and he was gonna have to find something. Is something else to do was going to have to do have something to do with getting into some sort of reserve unit or else he was going to get drafted, and so his brother had been a Marine. And he decided to him enlist. In the marine reserves, and he went down to 99 Palms, California On. He went into the marine reserves at 5916 years. I said before, by the time six months was up, and he got released from the Marines after six months active duty. It was 61 to 10. This is what you call Miracle Gro on nobody could believe it. When he came back back to president, they couldn't believe how he's grown and coarse. Along with it came the 96 Mile an hour fastball. But anyway because he'd been a Marine and this whole business with Vietnam and the anti war movement back in the 69 was going on. He said. Other people, he said, You know, I don't want to get involved in politics, he says. My personal beliefs is we should not be over there because they're not fighting this war the right way. But he also said, I would never say anything. That on which my fellow Marines would be denigrated, and so that's why he wasn't happy with that whole business of being associated with an anti war movement. My guess is Bill Man in the name of his book Is Tom Seaver, a terrific life. So what? What part of his career wasn't terrific. What were some of his biggest difficulties? What perhaps was the most challenging part of his career in your opinion? Well, there was There was a point where money was with the Reds, but he was having a terrible issue. Um, he was having problems with his shoulder and he was having problems with Just hey, wasn't severe pain with his, uh, with his hips and his buttocks. On. He wasn't sure what itwas but all he knew was he had to shut it down this one season with Cincinnati. And, uh, Hey, went to see a doctor. A doctor Ryland in New York. I'm sorry. This was I'm sorry. This was his last year with the Mets. And he went to see on he was just couldn't he just couldn't pitch right now. And so am Donald Grant, the owner of the chairman of the Mets. Uh, told the Mets trainer. He said, Look, I've got a doctor chiropractor that I know a guy named Dr Ryland. Would it be all right? A C. We went to see him because he wasn't gonna pitch for the rest of the year. And so Beaver said. Okay, I'll go to see and so violent, took Seaver at his house and invited him to his house. On He said. Okay, you fit to go and what had happened. Was he in one of his deliveries or whatever. He had done something to his back where he got out of kilter is hold back on the back of his along his buttocks area and And Ryland just straightened it out. And then he was fine for the rest of the year. And that was about the only time he ever had a serious injury in which he had to shut it down. You know, length of time. What about what about relationships with management? World That's it the whole different story. Uh, It's funny because I sent a copy of my book to Steve Cohen, the new owner of the Mets. And I would put an inscription in the book. I said, This is a primer on how not to run the Mets because of what the Mets did the top C for wow throughout his whole career. And Of course, the biggest thing was in 1977 when she ever got into this contract dispute with Grant. And at the same time Grant was adamantly against free agency and signing free agents free agency had come into play in 1976. And at the time, Seaver was already in a two year contract with the Mets, and he made it clear that he didn't want to leave. The Mets is a free agent. He wanted to stay with the man. He wasn't all that interested in free agency. He was hoping that he would be able to be a met for life. But then what happened was after the 76 season and all these pictures and got these huge contracts and free agency. And she were felt he was hoping that the Mets would at least Renegotiating his contract to put them put him on a par with these contracts of pitches were getting who are far inferior to him. We're getting as as free agents, one of whom was Nolan Ryan, actually former teammate with the Angels. But anyway, um they got on us. Grant was having none of this. He would not re negotiate with fever, and he was also annoyed that Seaver was criticizing him in the paper over not signing free agents. And of course, what happened was Grant then enlisted the services of Dick Young, who was a columnist for The Daily News and my My former mentor. I wasn't at the Daily news at the time, but Nick Young got involved with Grant taking his side on this whole dispute receiver and wrote a serious of columns..

Everybody Oi interview always said the same thing that Howard was the most insecure men ever met, and that's certainly showed up in a lot of ways. It was one of the things that made him great kept on erected barriers. Keep with everybody and that drove him to almost You know maniacal Lens grade but the enemies he made as you say, that'd be everybody I mean I don't know how the man live because there was a new every day brought another confrontation.

As as you say everyone he would run into you know would come away with this Howard cosell story of being being browbeaten and be rated by Howard. It just became. It wasn't funny after a while in the beginning it was funny to be attacked by our. Larry Merchant so that you know he said. At, the beginning when he attacked, we were flattered we loved it. It was Howard. But towards the end, it was like, who is who is this guy to be attacking anybody you know? He's no bargain. This guy. Change to the fact that he really meant it I mean. The early. Hey, babe, it'll self-deprecation. But as it grew on he he meant what he said I mean he he he hated. Well, he put it on a book write. That book I never played the game which was. A three hundred page rant against everyone basically he ever met. Give us specifically Gifford and meredith but anyone route arlene should anyone whoever whoever was on his side came in for a brutal tonguelashing in that book and it was not pretty at all. Time with Abou- author of Howard Cosell. The man, the myth and the transformation of American sports You mentioned his name earlier of the association with as you said, the beginning with caches quiet and became Muhammad. Ali that that association was that calculated. You think on how cells that he would be elevated by being associate with Alli. Or did he really feel for Allie going through what he did at that time? He was very calculating man was very starting a business bent marketer of himself and in the sixty. That was one that was when popular culture demanding different kinds of. Heroes of Anti. Heroes people who you wouldn't expect to be. Aerobic. Big. Mouths. You know people who brag about themselves and everything like that. So they recognize each other that if they can. In the sort of buddy. Buddy Buddy game here that they would go even further than they would on their own. You know Howard was very close with what Patterson before Clay Shaw Ali came along. He was the producer of the ABC Radio Network fight coverage and he would go all the big fights and he would get very close to the two fighters he. Floyd. was almost a family member of a member of in the coastal households to his wife and daughters love Boise and then they had a falling out which is almost like a divorce. It was like a like a you know it was that personal a thing and that came about judge as clay what's coming around so I think it was you know because so ready to junk one wife for another you know and and the Clay Lee became his wife Professional. Like Emmy was his wife. Wife for about fifteen years they same ups and downs and you know separations and records. But it was like to the public. It was unbelievable like we've got folly was there without cosell. You say, well, where's our you know Howard has to be there for. The remarkable thing and I still think. The single most brave the brave thing I've ever seen and heard in sports journalism was Kosovo defensive all league when he refused to go into the military because they had nothing to do with politics or religion or anything like that. It was based strictly on the Constitution and the law and processed, and only cosell could have done that at the time because nobody else at any. At any.

"This is close to home in the sense that his family or close friends could be listening right now, because he died in just right up the road. I mean, he was in our area for the last 25 years of his life. He was right here. Probably listening to KNBR Paul. He was a Yes, well fan, he would come down to San Francisco sometimes on weekends and just watch games, you know, and he would be seen around the batting cage around that, you know, it's funny. I never I started racking my brain. I don't think I ever had an encounter with him. We had him on the show, Murph. We did an interview with him. One year. I remember we recorded it after we It wasn't live. It was one of those deals where he might have been promoting one of his wine endeavors. A and we went to the studio after the show and reported the conversation. Yeah, I'd love to find that now me to fit in the system. But here's something you won't throw on the table about Seaver. Now that, like just I'm older. Your older like is your right when Seaver was like at his peak peak was like the mid seventies Too late seventies. I guess he won the Cy Young and 69 73 75. Right. So those years those airs peak years and growing up like now, I can appreciate this because you see all the interviews with him from those years and he definitely appears to be like a very dapper gentleman. Oh, yeah, he's not. In other words. He's not Joe name if he's no, no fact reserved, gentlemen. He's very polite, like when I watched the footage last night of him when it was announced he was going to leave New York and go to the Reds, like when he got emotional, and he starts talking about the fans. I'm like, Look at the way he's like I was just like looking at his the way he handled himself like a Murphy. I'm not kidding. Total gentleman. No, You're absolutely right. I read Atanas stuff about him last night and one of the one outside of the incredible physical feeds on the mound and they are well go through some of those. You know whether it's 311 wins or 3000 when he retired, was third on the all time strikeout list. Yeah, and he and Walter Johnson are the only guys in the history of baseball. 300 wins. 3000 strikeouts in a career IARA under three career. 2.8 60 are a which is bananas. But one of the many things that outside of all that was just one of the greatest pitchers of all time. Was off the field, his persona his personality his, you know, he married his high school. His actually is a girl from the city from Fresno, writing another listener, Perry. We have listeners down in Fresno and and, you know, I was telling cops Do you know his father is a whole another story? His father was very iconic athlete at Stanford, one of the great amateur golfers in the history of California. California State Amateur champion Has everybody talking about that? I was named after him. He also played football and either basket. I think you played football baseball at Stanford or foot. His dad was a legend to Charlie Seaver. Yes, our leak. See, Tom married. She grew up in Fresno. Tom and Nancy Seaver were considered this light that, like, kind of like and and I'm not exaggerating here. Kind of like John and Jackie Kennedy. They were sort of that way. Right? Right. Like they were just not know They were that first couple of baseball really worried They were going that way. And in fact, the reason why he left the Mets to go to the Reds. What involved his right? No, I didn't know it was a take No prisoners, salty, angry New York sports columnist. You just took it just decided he had a beef with Seaver. Because, well, because see for what Seaver was part of the union Seaver lead that players union. And at that time it was very controversial. You know, there are a lot of people who didn't want baseball be messed with, you know, stay in your lane. Players don't form a union and Dick Young was a friend of the owners. And so he was, like, all look at Tommy. He needs more money or he wants what he wants. He was like, Oh, you and your stupid union. So he went after Seaver like crazy. Interesting. Dick Young was I mean, these guys man they went. He called him Tom toe with thick with W's t. W w you know, he called him a baby Just cause he wanted to stand up for the players and the players union. Yeah. Yeah. And so then what is what, like got involved. So he put young published a piece. Saying that Nancy Seaver is making two man. That's because Nolan Ryan salary. Yes, that's it. That's it. Tom Seaver said You'd bring my wife in. They don't come out. Drink me right now. And I respect respect. Even that, like that's a gentleman right there. You see my wife? That's it. I'm out of here and move one more because I don't think he mentioned this one real quick. Just something one stat here. Tom Seaver, nine straight 200 plus strikeouts seasons. That's the longest in major league baseball history. Nine straight seasons, which I got a ton of unbelievable stats were including the 69 season when they chased down the Mets for them because they were down like 8.5 9.5 midsummer. In his final 11 starts 10 0 with a 134 and in his final 6 September starts when they chased down the Cubs and I had to win every game. Didn't allow a single homer. Didn't allow a single stolen base and went undefeated and through complete games. All six Yes. No, it's Yeah, Yeah. Listen that Matt Cain stat of like getting caned. In that year that met scored three runs or fewer for him and in 17 games. He won 12 of them Teo highest winning percentage of all time. And they said in in in the 1969. He pitched the ninth inning 18 times and never surrendered a run or an extra base. Come on, You know, I mean, it's and and then we get Murph later on. We got to get into the complete games, too. That's a whole other thing when I was alright, their ninth inning 18 anyway, and it's so sad because dementia The young age, where last year they made it and that the family put out a statement saying he was retiring from public life because of dementia, and any family has been touched by dementia. I know mine has, I'm sure, many, many, many, many of our listeners have been affected by dementia, their families. It's just so tough for a young guy, too. He's 75 75 anyway, is very iconic. I wanted yes, especially because especially because his family's right up here right up the road in Calistoga. And if you're if they're anybody's listening up in Calistoga, we send our deep last thought. Murph last thought, and I know you're a big baseball history guy would you say? Would you call him the greatest arm of that generation? Yeah, no question. That's really this. I mean, you know you hate to bring up Roger Clemens because he's such a jerk. But Clemens is on that Clemens comes to mind. But Walter Johnson in the history of the game is like we're really only one of the other ones. Nolan Ryan, But Seaver was better than Ryan. No wash. No, He was better better than Ryan considerably better than he really was. But he's and it's just, you know, he's just like I said he had an air about certain guys haven't air in the gentleman duty. General General the heartbreak King story that Richard Tom Verducci wrote in last year in Sports Illustrated. About five old Mets teammates went to go see him one last time in Calistoga last year, and they came to San Francisco and Nancy Seaver said. He's not having a good day go so they had to cool out. And they were planning to fly out on Sunday and they only had the one day on Saturday. They called seven more. And they said, You know, he's having a good day. Come on up, and it did. Trevor. Dude she writes about The day they spent nine hours with him on his ranch in Calistoga. They goto a long lunch and they just go through all the memories And just like you guys with D C.

"I mean he is a terrific player. And now folks in New York have a big problem. For those who may not know the Mets tweeted out. With all due respect to Tom Brady. There's only one hash tag. Tom terrific to us in the show in Tom Seaver their number forty one. L GM. Let's go Mets. Now I look I it's just not. And then there's l l g that's out there right now with let's go blues all the Saint Louis. There's a lot of LG is going on. So with with the with the Mets I grew up, obviously in New York City and Tom terrific was Tom's phrase. He didn't say, I'm Tom terrific. That was the nickname for him that the tabloids gave him. I bet and I 'cause I don't know the exact origin but it does sound like something that is sports writer, or the new York, Daily News, or Newsday back in the day today or which they still. They still they still exist Newsday. And also the New York Post my call Tom terrific. That's what it sounds like. And he was terrific. But. Even as a native New Yorker. I mean, Ariza changed. Tom Brady has the ability to get it. He's not sliding Tom Seaver. Go ahead and do that. And I remember Tom Seaver was Tom terrific. And Tom Brady wants to use that phrase. I'll just always remember as a New Yorker who that who use that I. I mean is that bad form by Tom Brady? The New York tabloids are having a lot of fun with this. So the New York Post headline for this is Tom Brady's obscene. Tom terrific graphs, crazy. The first two paragraphs say patriots quarterback, Tom Brady has fired filed a trademark for the nicknamed, Tom terrific. Wow. Tom. The twit is more like it. Gosh, I know I know. Boomer size when crazy on his radio show. Humor assize went crazy. Look, look, ladainian Tomlinson has gone by the nickname of LT. For a very long time. You ask a certain age group if the sick L whose L who's LT. They'll say it's ladainian Tomlinson, but then there's number fifty six Lawrence Taylor, who is the original LT. Right. There's enough LT's in the world to go around for everybody. But guess here's boomer assize quote today w phase enough. There's enough world here. You've got so much GD money you can do whatever you want. And this is now at Tom Brady wants to take maybe New England, and we'll call him that I guess, but, you know what we've been calling Tom Seaver, Tom terrific for as long as I can remember, I'm disgusted. I'm really surprised. I don't know. It just feels sleazy to me, sleazy, sleazy, and a couple of fans told the New York Post he's an idiot, but get your own nickname, New York. It's not like go back to deflate footballs. Okay. It's bring it all up. It's a it's a New York, Boston rivalry. I understand that there too in our against him leave him ally. No way. But if that's what he wants to do. It's not trademarked. It's not like he's ripping it from Tom Seaver 's life, right? Finished his career. With the Red Sox nineteen eighty six he also he threw a no hitter in Yankee Stadium for the White Sox. Okay. And also, if you really want to it's funny, it's really if you really want to drill deep into this. It's funny that the New York tabloids have Tom Seaver back because it was the New York tabloids, who ran him. Right. Out of town dick young was a mean curve.

We weren't televising press conferences within nobody cared about the access to these guys he had two or three people in the locker room max. And they just did it that way. And it's like one of the it's like the whole reserve by basketball book was about the basketball famous. Like, why did we do this way? Well, that's how we've always done it. And that's the answer at anytime. The answer is. Well, that's how we've always done it. You know, we're headed for just stupidity just sheer stupidity. Well, that's how we've that's how dick young did in nineteen sixty four. Well, that's the attic. What could be fifty four. Like, what if you said like, I wonder if it would work. Really, hey, you know, what we're not doing anymore? We're doing no more locker room stuff like the locker room is there room. Yeah. That team may the fuck out of the locker room. But does that mean, then the beat the b guy would be listening right now being like, well, if you do that when we're never going to get any time with these guys was that is that true?

What are you getting like get something out of it though? I do think there are reporters that do a really good job of building these relationships.

"We think now they are, you know, very smart in terms of the draft and guys are necessarily rated highly by other teams of patriots on I'll pick them and win with them. But they lose a couple of offense lineman. So. A lot of a lot of ways if you are a jet fan or a patriot hater or both. I think a lot of people are you look at this off season so far, and you take a little bit of a heart with that any inch. Interesting thing is a village during the combines was I'm vacation. You wonder okay. Is that ehre Gance or is he just smarter than the average? Bear knows it. I'm not going to put too much stock in what I see guys running around in shorts. I've got my my ways of evaluating talent. And I trust our scouting situation. And we're going to be successful that way. Not much giants news to report this week, everything pretty much quiet on that. And the big thing in football. Of course was the institution of the one year experiment with instant replay regarding pass interference. Ira from Staten Island called before wondering what we thought about that. And. I mean, I think it's a it's a worthy experiment. I hear people. Oh, it slows the game down and now judgment calls and replay and look replays going to be with us. You you can't turn the dial back necessarily on technology. But you can modify it you can change it and give a tragic tragic example, you know, the two Boeing seven thirty-seven supermax as it crashed over the last year and why they did. And apparently what they are finding is that there is there were two sensors that are mounted toward the front of the plane and without getting too technical the angle of attack is what gets the planes in the air. They're supposed to be like a three degree angle of attack. So when they get in the air, they slew they go up up up up up up. And if they go up too fast the plane is in danger of stalling if they go down too fast, they're in danger of you know, nosediving and crashing. So you have to keep that angle of attack pretty consistent. Well, apparently, what's happened. Is that these sensors then relay information? And the pilots have to override it. If the information is incorrect in other words, if the plane's nose, they think is going to fast it basically brings it down. So that the plane doesn't go up installed. Well, the sensors sometimes conflict and give different information. And if one of them says the ankle of the tech is too high. Jerks the plane down and apparently the pilot were not well enough trained to know how to override that system consistently. Or maybe the system couldn't have been overridden, and it was a tug of war where it was going back and forth back and forth back and forth until the system actually one and crashed the plane, my point is that. All right. So that's bad technology. Well, it was intended to be a safety feature. So that the pilots didn't have to worry about the plane stalling out. Instead it turned into a liability just like in the NFL instant replay supposed to be a good thing to get the calls. Correct to make sure that everything goes the way it should. Well, if it turns out to backfire and bite them in the you know, what I think the NFL being a very progressive league when it comes to rules after one year, we'll say, okay, this didn't work. Let's try something else. I think it's probably a good thing. Thank it's probably a thing where you will learn that, you know. No. Mel every once in a while, maybe more than once in a while pass interference call is incorrect, and the coaches will have an opportunity to say, okay review. It take a look at it. See what you think when you see it in slow motion. And maybe some incorrect calls will get overturned. We'll see how that shakes out. All right. Let's get to our phones. Tom in Merrick is with us you're on the fan. Tom. Hi, richard. How are Tom? I'm good. I think I think they had to change it. Because of what happened in the playoff? I think they changed it, obviously. But anyway, the thing I wanted to ask you, I think you would have a lot to say on this, which I'm asking you. I was a kid when Tom Seaver was ousted from New York and everyone talking about him Donald grant. But I think and maybe it hasn't brought up before the the role of dick young back in the day with newspapers were probably. Credibly powerful do people these days. Probably don't realize how powerful newspapers were. Ability to bend, m Donald grant skier and also on his own kind of pommel fever to the point of submission of maybe you could shed light on that having gone through that. Yeah. I mean, it's interesting. Dick, young was a guest when I did my sports connection show with Rick around on any W, A M, and dick Kim was aghast and I had him on. And we basically I think had a contentious argument about that. Dick, young was a very opinionated guy a very conservative guy, and he did not like Tom Seaver at all. And. Part of part of what the newspaper columnists job is to stir things up. And if they have a strong belief that a certain guy is good for the team. And they don't like that guy. They can indulgent personal vendettas, and they can trash guys. And I mean, we're seeing it today where people can print things and say things that aren't necessarily true. They don't necessarily have factual basis behind them. But if they say enough, there is a continue to people who believe it, and without the internet that we have today without the access to information that we have today, the newspapers were incredibly powerful, and the the daily news and the post, especially as tabloids would go toe to toe, and if the post had an opinion, the daily news would have the opposite opinion, and it's somewhat true to this day that they take opposing views to stir up their audience and dick young wrote a lot of things about Seaver that a lot of fans started to believe because they didn't have information to the contrary and certainly. Donald grant thinking that. Well, you fans don't like this guy either we can get rid of them and feeling that. Well, we're losing with this one guy if we get five guys in return, maybe we can turn it around and win. But they've got a lot to do with that. He certainly did. And you know, there's any columnist in baseball. I have that power today. I tend to doubt it because there are so many independent sources of information that no one guy in I'm including people on this radio station. Have that kind of power. It can be negated through other sources now because there are so many other ways to get information whereas back then. You know, you had the times didn't get involved in this kind of stuff. So if the two tabloids basically, you were saying something over and over and over again, people tended to believe it and tended to be heavily influenced by eight seven seven three three seven six six six Sweeney on the Yanks next. There are two kinds of people those who go home to change and those who role with the times Wrangler makes genes for the second group, the trendsetters the Mavericks, the leaders of the pack those who were found by nothing from bull riders to Rockstars from work life tonight..

"Talk about New York sports. You heard from Dave gentleman for the first time after the Odell Beckham junior trade, and if you were hoping and praying that the giants general manager was going to give you some clarity into his thought process when it comes to the Beckham trade when it comes to the quarterback position when it comes to Yuan manning taking a pay cut. You really did not get a whole lot of that as cattleman did a conference call the media did a sit down with Mike here on the fan. And my main takeaway from hearing Dave Gettleman Monday in this conference call he watched the New York Giants season ago. The Dave Gettleman watch. And dissect the same game by game by game futility that we watched when this team got off to one seven start. I mean somebody's quotes from Dave gentleman. Cook this narrative that allies overpaid and can't play is a crock end quote. Basically taken Eli Manning's five million dollars roster bonus as a mere formality and Mike you being like, good producer and statistician extraordinaire. Let's get this on the record. Because we just look this up in the last break, and I wanna make sure I get my facts straight. No fake news here. Matting is what as far as quarterback rankings with payment is concerned according to over the calf recap hits now total cash seven ties paid quarterback for twenty nine hundred seventh highest paid quarterback for twenty nine hundred sandwich. One about Eli Manning's career shooting. He Beatty seventh highest paid quarterback with the way. He's played the answer is not. So that's simply not the case when it comes to the general manager. Here's another problem. I have with Dave Gettleman. You were the same organization. We charge that made Odal Beckham junior the highest paid receiver in the sport you game that contract. Jerry's not somebody else you did. You were the same general manager that city ergo this team is close. We have a win now mentality. So they signed Beckham they drafted a terrific running back saquon Barkley, and they thought that last year, and we're going to be a good team blew up in face. Now, you see the giants basically China half way. They trade Beckham. Don't Antic Collins. They turned away Olivier Vernon through the more talented players on. Yeah. Giant team that hasn't performed at a high level the last couple of years, but they were three most talented players. You go out and sign a pros pro and golden Tate. Nobody's going to look at going pain say he's on the level. Not 'cause Todo Beckham junior. You bring him back thirty eight year old quarterback you still have no plan for the quarterback of the future. And if you're looking for a positive side out of what you heard from Dave Gettleman, at least finished interview with Mike. He did make it pretty obvious. They're finding that quarterback of the future is something the giants desperately need to do. And that could change perception that could change the entire narrative somewhat of what you're thinking about what this franchise because we all know until they solve that an answer. Who's taken at torch from Eli manning. This state of flux with John organization will continue to linger and one thing that did not sit well with me, and it shouldn't sit well with any giant fan is basically Gettleman Mike laughing about the fact that the last high profile in his prime to be traded was this guy as far as in his in his prime saying. You're saying. Yeah. That's it. And that was. Dave that was an internal fight with Donald grant. And dick young was involved. And there was a lot of ugliness involved and people think that's what's going on here. But you say none of that here. Right. Gosh, Michael, I'm not comparing Beckham to Tom Seaver ridiculously unfair. But if you have any sense for what goes on in this town and look Tom Stevens before my time. I understand that anybody who knows New York sports knows that is one of the all-time wars trades in the history of this town laugh over that. Nah. Not gawk. Not good optic. Hereon giant general managers say we didn't actively shop Beckham junior. We were head over heels over this off a week from Cleveland. I mean, how do you not doing due diligence? Even though you got this offer from John Dorsey and company. How do you not see what else is out there? I'm sorry. I don't really understand what the giant plan is right now. You guys even as the biggest giant fan on the planet could listen Gilman wanna drink the Kool aid go right ahead. Be my guest that plan. Not there my ass because I think the giants zig zag and every which way that going on with Dave Gettleman and the New York Yankees who are about a week and change away from opening day. We know they have some injury issues in that starting rotation. We Severino is gonna miss at least the first month of the year. CC's about the coming back from the knee injury. Not going to be ready for opening day. Yes. You have the Mingo her mind. Yes. Sessa? But it was just too practical. And it just made too much sense. For the New York Yankees to go out and sign another starting pitcher, and they made the ideal perfect move for the back end the rotation setting GIO Gonzalez to minor league contract. He gets a three million dollar contract. If he's on the Yankee roster and look GIO Gonzalez is bro. He's had some good years with the Washington nationals. Here's a left-handed pitcher that always poison Yankee Stadium and for what the Yankees, basically gave -til Gonzales. I mean, how do you my fam- wolf? I'm not saying he's going to be the geo Gonzales that pitches to sub three and a half year old Ray, I think the days GIO Gonzalez bureau, frontline starter probably done. Tell me Gonzales gain come here beat upgradable what the Yankees currently have shirt cat, and it's not going to get in the way of the keys when it comes. They have to let's say in the middle of summer any level starting pitcher. This shouldn't stop you from doing that. Going to take solace time to wrap it up and be ready to go. He's not going to be on this opening. Their us is probably gonna take them at least three to four weeks. But you get a pro's pro a veteran presence back into the rotation. Job. Well, done by Brian Cashman and company if I'm a met fan watching Stephen match pigeon is spraying watched Jason Vargas, I'm wondering for that contract. Was it my team in jail. So GIO Gonzalez. A Yankee an absolute no brainer. Dave Gettleman continuing to be fun me. And I'm sure befuddling a good amount of the giant fans. The gift that keeps on giving. We got a lot more to do.

"In one thousand nine hundred seventy four that included this without doubt, the navy's most ambitious plans for women have been in the flight training program. Dick, young women have been selected pave the way for future women in naval aviation. Rosemary mariner was one of the six here. She is speaking to NPR in two thousand thirteen my role models were African American men who had led the vanguard in integration of race in the armed forces in studied, many of the lessons that they had to pass on another one of the pioneers was Mary Louise Griffin. She and Marriner formed a life. Among bond as they crack the navy's gender barrier. It was quite honestly, an experiment, and they really had many detractors, but Admiral Dumont who is chief of naval operations and said we're going to do this Griffin spoke from her home in Georgia. She'll give the eulogy at Saturday's funeral for mariner outside Knoxville, Tennessee, she recalled the reception they faced from male pilots in the seventies. Well, no disrespect to my buddies. But some of them took a long time to come around to the idea there were other challenges like uniforms, we were told to bring three weeks of dresses and heels because our uniforms where custom-tailored and wouldn't be ready for about three weeks. We marched in our companies in our heels and our dresses. It was pretty darn funny. Mariner became the first woman to pilot and attacked yet in nineteen seventy. Four flying in a four Skyhawk in the one thousand nine hundred ninety one Gulf war. She was the first woman to command an air squadron. She logged more than thirty five hundred hours in fifteen different aircraft in her career Griffin remembers mariner most vividly as a friend a very quiet introspective thoughtful person with a really dry sense of humor. And you kinda caught yourself missing it sometimes. And then just laugh uproariously mariner was a strong advocate for women in the military during and after her career here, she is in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven speaking to NPR just after she retired from the navy. You have to have an integrated cohesive force that is identified as a common soldier, sailor marine or airman not as boys and girls who are wearing the same uniform. And she's still paving the way for women pilots. Mariner's funeral on Saturday will include the navy's first ever, all female flyover. It's so unprecedented. The navy doesn't yet have a proper name for what it's still calls. The missing man flyover, Greg Mary NPR news, Washington..

"Pays company for a while. Zooming. How are you, sir? Tony yourself. I'm hanging in there. We ready for the game. I'm getting there. So I guess it's Tuesday now, but I was about to say it's Monday. But you know, we're still we're still we're still up. What about yourself you ready over there? Now this when when it's when it's Sunday, that's what I'm ready to much hype. Thank this unless somebody's announced their retirement. And there's no news coming out this one exactly exactly Brady saying he's gonna play until he was you know. Probably. Yeah. He amended I'm halfway through my NFL career. Exactly. And then, you know, what's funny. Tony. You know, I saw or I actually heard when I was driving home yesterday. I heard on the radio say that there's currently a prop bet for Tony Romo if he's going to call a touchdown play before it happens. No boy. Well, what do you think you think Tony's got it at them? Yeah. Probably because he's played quarterback. And he kinda knows. Not to me talks too much. But that's that's just me. He's been given career performances this entire playoff. I mean. Wow. See, I'm I'm a Hank. I'll defend hang strand because he used to get it all he he knew every single which way we're going all the time. Are you a Tony fat on the commentary? That is talks too much. Calm down just keeps going on and on. And sometimes I just want to like a little silence. Every once in a while. But he never shuts up. It is a little interesting. You know, what you know? What was funny is that a thereto started doing some of the playoff games or those Saturday playoff games? I thought him in that group that they put together for those games were probably the best of all of the football commentary that there has been this entire season. ESPN's Monday night crew. I I can do without them. I don't think they're that. Great. I tell you. I I like Phil Simms in the booth. I mean, I know Sean McManus made the big move and got Tony in there because Simms was fine. There's nothing wrong with him. He was, but you know, he's always always a TV is by making new buzz. And if it blew up data found somebody else, but the happy with what they got exactly now, you know, Tony Tony's going to have a huge contract agency coming up again. Are you betting on this game? I haven't decided yet. I mean, honestly, I I'll probably throw a few shackles down on it. But I like those crazy weird bets to just hear about them. And like when I was in college a bunch of our friends would be like, oh, it's going better on the the Gatorade colors and whatnot. Today. You can bet on the coin to us like, geez. That's that's pretty that's pretty tough. You know, you're sitting there. Everybody else is just like, you know, still settling in and whatnot. They're like, oh, you know, New England won the coin toss, you're like. You're in a bad mood right off the bat at the Rams entails. Absolutely. He's seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six toll free line. We're going all the way five forty probably everything gets hooked up nicely down in hotlanta. Let's go to C J in on Holly CJ, you're on the fan. How you doing man? How are you? Yeah. Okay requested who do you think is the worst quarterback start in a Super Bowl? I'm gonna give you two names. David. I was gonna say Tony Eason. Yes. Yes. Babble was like third string quarterback to Alaska games of the season. He didn't Obama lethal one long pass. I think if I remember can't remember I thought he got one one good one good throw or something. But there's there's a lot of guys that get in there that you know, what happened to this guy. What happened? And then you get guys like Trent Dilfer who show up and and and. Brad Johnson guys who you never going to hear from them again. But they have ripping we'll be less. Yup. Yep. And even here in Doug Williams because that was his one big. Yeah. But you gotta get a lotta guys. I mean, that's why I said this game. I hope it's something special. Because if it's you know, it's thirty five to ten blowout by the patriots. Don't nobody wants to see turning it off at some point. To the next. Yes. All right. I think what needs to make sure his job is safe for the future. Any take his food is better. It's a simple mission. Forever. And any place should be open to call position. Yeah. You know, they they need they need bodies that can play. They need guys whoever he drafts. It's gotta be like on besides beyond the rookie team. He's got to be like unto running for rookie of the year and been an all-star. He's got to be that kind of that type of a draft pick, right? Right. There's covered by say, John. The program. Let me tell you. St John's house as opposed to school like Villanova. Reading on campus. The Square Garden subjugate crappy old arena. Facility. Yeah. I don't know why. Where would they put it out? I don't know if they have the room to build anything. Basketball playoffs who used to be held Johnson. It's I wonder what the deal is. Because you know, it is so cost effect. Caused so myself in the garden. You know, the the golden gloves used to be in their their. They're done the Bill rose gave us in there. They're done. Colgate. Women game just being there. They're done. So you know, it's like big time. You know as the Knicks. It's it's the Rangers their liberty or out. You know, it's it's it's is big concerts big ticket place people under garden experience that's going there. But. It's they they don't. It's funny. How boxing massive Square Garden had a boxing department. They had they had they had staff who fights on a regular basis the big building and a small Bill back nothing. It says a promoter rents out the Bill. Let's go to Pat, Pat. How are you this early? Hey, Tony, thanks for even company. You know, I went to see the nets last Wednesday demo pretty good versus Orlando's David exciting. Yeah. I didn't expect them to beat the Celtics tonight. Without dinwiddie. But they they hung in there for a while. They're they're they're a playoff team as far as I'm concerned. I mean, if you think about it they a ten man rotation. Two of the guys were from the gbi. Yeah. Saving energy. They sat the Angela Russell rightfully so stable for tonight against the Bose. Yeah. They also saying that the coach of a little said he wouldn't do it some things he wanted. But I I can buy that too. But yeah. They three games over five hundred who did anybody expect that at the beginning of the season, especially when they later or something like that. I'd be happy with a succeed. But. Even better. You know, we could we could make up some ground know, we have so many people heart, Tony. But it was a close game. Like, I said last Wednesday roasts Orlando one fourteen to one ten nice, comfortable arena. You know, you're not squeezed in the lookout at the garden. Right. I don't know why people are still going until the garden. Tony you must be going to see the opposing team. I think so what was the fight in Brooklyn on on Saturday night. Oh, a gorgeous arena is. It's a nice is intimate. And it's it's it's a nice nice view from everywhere in the builders. Very nice. Nice. They all got the nets color is on. Yeah. About that. Pretty pretty nice basically crowd, you know, young people or older people taking their kids to keep dancing on the big screen. Couldn't have been more than seven or eight years doing that doing the the whiteboard, whatever they call it the the back and forth. Very very entertaining. And you know. Breakdown. So was I mean, it just it just a great experience. Tony I like to see three or four games a year ago. I can't afford to see the Knicks knows I get one for for Abol seats for the nets. The other problem is if you're right. People go to garden for the quote unquote, gardening experience of the garden. Experienced comma of watching the other team. Davis is coming to town the Browns coming into town. You pick you pick you pick the star on the other team. And that's what you wanna see. And then I will make this point as they say over and over again, the Nixon not tanking folks. They just think they're not good. They know how to play for a little while you gave me two good quarters. Maybe I might be the third could be the second fourth. But by that time the holes too deep. I think I was watching halftime at one of the cheese was saying we always have problems in the third quarter. We've got gotta come out. Anyway, they wanted third quarter by a point. But eighteen points. It's something, you know. And I don't blame the coach is like, dude. It's how many times, you know. You don't you know, what your job is? You gotta have a good third period of key build on what you've done in the first half. They never do. Let's go to in the Bronx Duane morning, Mr. page. Good to hear from Pat. I'm pretty well. First of all, right. I'm surprised I must have missed what you said the liberty. You're out of MSG 'cause the nets owner bought them. Oh, yeah. I didn't even realize. Yeah. Miss that whole thing. But quickly right with the hall of fame MLB hall of fame last week. You were mentioned in the list of first ballot inductees by the writers. And right. So you just confirmed that I know you had your own Eddie Murray experienced, but you just confirmed that Eddie Murray was denied his first ballot. Now, he's on there. No, no. He wasn't on your list of first ballot guys. I read I read right in front of me. I read all the guys is daily news. Right. I believe Eddie Murray denied him a year. That's too much power in the media. No this list says hall of fame first year inductees, right? But I believe Eddie Murray didn't get in these first year. What I'm saying that the list I have in front of me is first year inductees in bit Willie Mays McCovey Molitor Morgan Murray. Oh, he did. Oh, excuse me. I'm sorry. Because I read everybody. I've I read the whole list because it was just, you know, there was nobody really can't argue with anybody on the list. Right. I was just going back at the time. Like he went in with Ryan Sandberg or someone. There was just a lot of controversy as to how much media what turned off by Murray with various stops around major league baseball. It's funny. How you know? He was silent guy in got in. And how rebel spoke too much. I guess I dunno not enough. I don't know. Well, it just a lot of. Right. A lot of bad activity. They called him dad Albert and with their reason with my my understanding is Dickie the late. Dick young did a story. He was talking to the media. And then he went and talked to Eddie Murphy's, brother or mother or something like that. And he said you didn't have asked me ask my permission to talk to my family. So if you guys and act like that, I'm not gonna talk to anybody then oh, this happened to be dick young here. Okay. Years and years ago, right? 'cause Murray I believe he's still the only switch hitter in major league baseball five hundred homers three thousand ribs. I mean. Right. The the bottom line, right? He was an RBI machine. Another thing. I I believe about eighteen years straight, even with three work-stoppages yet at least seventy five RBI, which grab with the work-stoppages makes it significant, but the other I'm calling about the Knicks briefly and really like prospects on Anthony Davis, and it's hard to say, I I know there tanking for the rest of this season. But to say to go and not join Kristaps Porzingis. And then you know, he and Tim Hardaway who would help with the money match onto trade like they're good. If they're both healthy, they're good for forty five points on any given night. So Davis may wonder who am I going to be with exactly even if they can salvage that number one that that first round draft pick lottery pick, you know, it gets a crap shoot how the guy will be whomever. They get whether it's on Williamson or whomever it ends up. But you're right. You want to know that you have someone who fits within the cap who provides other scoring. I think. Davis. Look I want to go somewhere where we got a chance to compete right away. I don't I don't wanna be spending next three or four years. Just trying to improve a team. I could just stay where I was eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six football baseball after this. Even in my own home. I had my own designated space to smoke. I.

"The promo code to see who's listening and who's buying they keep track keeping your toes. Yeah. They track of how many people, and that's what they do. And then they decide that they want advertise again Brooklyn, and these really are the best sheets ever. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. We got this note from how Durant who says this is how Seattle you have been good enough to play a couple of songs for my band. The almost faithful and the reaction has been fantastic, though, not quite enough to book a tour to Europe. We're seeing some good turn out for shows. We've been got one with cheese Aretha last show. Wow. Anyhow, if I recall Tuesday's normally to Tuesday's on the pond, I have no idea how that short. So I thought I'd sit in two more songs from recently released album, human nature. The first song is called I disappear. The second song which we will play later is quote because it's too Tuesday. Well, it's to win two for Wednesday is big blue dervish both are up tempo. Rocks full of melancholy ruminations of what could fun stuff anyway. So this is the almost fateful you'll hear them. And then you'll hear them at the end of the podcast. Richard Justice them will be dot com. Genius union. So let me get we're going to talk about the hall of fame. Almost exclusively Mariana Rivera went in unanimously. Why didn't you vote against them? If I voted I honestly would have to keep the tradit- said this on the show last night. I would have voted he's getting in. I would've voted against the why didn't you? Lifton the ballots are now made public a week later. And there's a guy named Ryan tip though that he attracts the ballots as they're submitted. You sent him your ballot. And there's pressure to do that. I know a bunch of guys that didn't want the ballots made public, and I just think there's a shaming process to it. So people would say to me, you know, Rivera's going to get in you feel strongly about let's say that Lance Berkman should stay on the ballot. He he didn't get enough to stay on. Why wouldn't you have a strategic bowel? Yeah. No. Because the next day you're going to get a call and this actually happened from dick young when he was alive, the new York Daily News, and it's going to say I'm going to slice you and dice you into a million pieces tomorrow in my column this actually happened. Once a guy that didn't vote for Mickey Mantle got a call from dick young. You don't he said to the guy he said, I just don't believe anybody should go in on the first ballot. Dick young. So there's a shaming process to looks eleven people didn't vote for Babe Ruth when they were counting the ballots in nineteen thirty six they actually stopped the ballot counting. What are we doing out here? Man, come home me. So I will tell you. And I said this on PTI, I think it's a quaint an honorable tradition. It never kept anybody out. And always gave you something to talk about SMARI on Rivera's a first ballot hall. Of course, he is. But I'd have taken the bullet on that one. Just because I. You wanna be that guy? You get the call from say New York, and since you you didn't vote for Tom Seaver? Can you explain that? Well, actually, I can't explain it. All right. So so there's no question that even though this is a relatively new position invented pretty much. Tony LaRussa and Dennis Eckersley that Mariana Rivera's the best ever. So he's in. And nobody would argue that he's the sure thing. Three other people got in yesterday. Edgar Martinez designated hitter. If it was up to me, I think I would have had David Ortiz as the first designated hitter. I put in Mike Messina and ROY halladay, and I'm not sure Richie. I don't know who you voted for. I'm not sure that any of them again. And I say this a lot is it's not the whole of the very good. It's not it's the greatest players of all time Harrow Baynes. He's the Tracy McGrady of the hall of fame in in this. Now, Tracy McGrady should not be in the hall of fame, and you should not. And hell Baynes shouldn't be can't did you vote or do you justify Martinez Messina and halladay? I'm a big hog..
