"Hey everybody, welcome back to live talk, I've been looking forward to this this broadcast this show for a while. We've been trying. I think since about October, to get these guys together with them, but just with a lot of things happening on our end and maybe there's as well, we're just grateful that this is happening now. And so welcome to our dear Friends. Now for me, I'm in Alabama. So for me, it's way out there way out west. Way out west and I want to wear my cowboy hat if I'd have known you needed some western flavor in your Alabama dock here. I brought it in. Oh, this is doctor Galen huck. He's the pastor, as you can see of that beautiful sign behind him, Shane hills, church. In Cheyenne, Wyoming. And James, Damien. James, so what's your title, James? You have a few pat you wear. A lot of titles, yeah. What my wife calls me or something. And then what you want to be called. So I'm the worship pastor. So for a lot of years. Tell us how long you're tenure. 13. January 15th, 13 years. 13 years. Wow. Yeah. I read online. He was my, he was my first tire, I believe. Get rid of him. Well, I was going to ask you, Gayle, and that I think I saw on the website. You've been there even longer. Yeah, it'll be 14, this march, and then I was actually came out of seminary out of Dallas seminary. And I was going to plan a church here in Cheyenne. I was kind of a cool long story. And I found a guy that was already starting to church here and I just thought, you know, I wonder if this guy needs, I needed a mentor. This guy, dick young, he was the founding pastor. He was 52 years old and I thought, man, this guy could teach me how to be a pastor. Right. And so I thought I'd be here a couple of years, actually, I was here four years between 92 and 97. Then we did go out and start a church in boulder county, was there ten years, and then in 2007, they started talking to me, hey, would you come back? Dick young has retired. Well, I can at least pray about it. And boy, God really made, you know, Gideon needed two fleece to lay out. I had three and God came through with all three of them. And it was like, okay. And that we need to be back in Cheyenne. So I guess you could add it all up and be like, be 17, 18 years, but total, but in this last as elite pastor, senior pastor, 14 years this march? Goodness, wow, that's amazing that you guys both have such staying power. That's a grace of God. We know that as leaders we understand, that's the grace we got. But it's also means just intentional leadership on your part, intentional servant, leadership on your part. I'm sure, right? Absolutely. I do that. I think being your church a couple times and I can tell you got to know some things there. I'll say that. It's amazing. Yeah, God's been really good to us. And you know, as faithfulness throughout the years and a real, I hope a team of approach that hopefully trickles down through part time staff and then also through our volunteer staff. Hopefully people feel like this is a God led Christ Christ centered price centered church and we're all just a part of it..

And we had Uh, the Bears were starting and we had two preseason games and you had the Cubs going or you had two socks going on an out of town game. 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. Right. True speech Tech. So I took two or three days. And came back to him in his office one day and I said Why don't you sit down? Let me read you your speech. His eye invasion. I said, for starters. You only take three minutes. He said three minutes. Are you kidding it? Cooperstown? I said Jack. Better people there today. You know Brooks Robinson, one marry shell while the Rosens family may rest in peace was gone already. I said those people. Will stand up in that hot sun. For an hour. Thanking everyone in creation who've gotten to this point. If you do that. You'll be here for three days in Cooperstown. I said, I have one line that covers that. I said the line is Countless people. It brought me to this pinnacle. You know who you are? And you have my undying gratitude. He said. Boy, That's great. So in any case, he sits down. I read him to speak. 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. And so he was really unique, unique person and let me in so many ways. We're speaking with Jack Rosenberg, longtime sports editor of WGN. I'm David. It Talk about some of the others. Vince Lloyd, another protege of Jack Brickhouse, and and another guy who for years was known as the voice of the Cubs, but also held A number of jobs around here, then ploy was Uh, like check had Tremendous set of pipes. Um He just had a great resident. Found on the air. Fantastic personality. Was born and reared in South Dakota. Of Lebanese to South And Jack used to say when, when Vince was doing television with him, and I would sit On one side of Jack and Vince was on the other. Jack would always tell people with me being of the Jewish faith and Vince being Lebanese. CAC would say it was tan about to ah to him sitting on the guy's a strip. And that went on for years. But I have to tell you something, Vince Lloyd. He came to me, just like Jack. Uh, The three of us were like brothers and, uh, We went through all of broadcasting wars together, and I think as I look back now, Vince also belongs in the Hall of Fame. And then he certainly in my hall of fame, and I think If you talk to anybody, you will find that He is probably is highly regarded. Is any broadcast forever.

"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..

All came out so play almost like uncanny valley love literally and especially to like the ryan. I guess like the the more expressive like movements. That like to see a team in do you know. Look like a s- passing out there like you know. Uncontrolled moving around like wildly.

So they would knock the plug out of a war. Record, it wouldn't work or they. They shout obscenities it from. Michael phone so it would be unusable. That's the. The immediate. Of, enemy making did among the sports ride, which is something that was a running battle throughout his whole life few. He had sports writer Dick Young that was was the main. Antagonists isn't he? Called Dick Young his Asia there. Out So Stuart. Just unbelievable was. Almost interest pile the way they viewed it with each other, but it was very entertaining. Obviously huge are big osage Sullivan would have few walker wind chill people like that would always have refused to that was sort of like incumbent upon people who were celebrity and coastal really enjoyed it but it was there was a double edged sword to that because he made he any enemy. In the media, not only among sports but in in the media as a whole that when he starts to fall in the eighties sort lose altitude there was nobody defendant. Very sad thing everybody sort of sort of ran away from Howard. To the little the little monkey remark. On Monday night football now Seattle Garrick remark and nineteen, eighty three no one was there defend him in the last decade of his life was to miss the horror show. He was all alone. When his wife died emmy and nineteen ninety-one totally alone and died that way even people who hated him so very sad. I know the last conversation I remember I worked in Philly all my life March. So I I I, not see him coming in for Monday night football and things like that. Of course, one of his greatest adventures was at Franklin Field But He would stand auburn it was a columnist for the Philadelphia whether it's in your book and up at and Stan. Hochman, they had a tremendous. You'd for years stand was gonNA assume the they threw back on an airplane together they got to violent discussion and He, he there wasn't a writer in the world that that's. Appreciated or likes to. Howard cosell. Yeah and and he would know exactly which ones are writing. About him even the smallest podunk bugle. No. I don't know how we radar or something he was known as somebody wrote something nasty about him and he would stop around the office all day vilifying whoever it was, who did that and it was like his Howard Cosell, the most recognizable man is sports in the country obsessing over what some two bit writer has to say about him in the paper that was that was that was triggered Samantha but it's jury. 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. Thought that from an articulation standpoint pick it always bring the other person down the other person didn't know nor did he make as well? He was almost he was almost A. A world famous lawyer talking to people down that never never with that always down and that was his his strength was that he was smarter than they were. You use bigger words they hit and he drew a lot more than they did. Yeah in the beginning, he was able to use that with sort of a wink. Would sort of able to play toward that. You know the power of Howard Cosell a little self deprecating humor. You didn't think it was him. You thought it was an act that he was playing. It was one of the things that kind of made him enduring. But later on, you lost all that, any was not in hearing at all towards long. 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.

I mean, a hell of a writer. Good off the good guy all around Final on Twitter at Jeff Pearlman. It is Jeff Pearlman Easy author of three Ring Circus. Kobe, Shaq, Phil and the Crazy Years of the Lakers dynasty joins us right now in the Highland. Hello there, Jeff. Hey, How's it going? Oh, it's not going too terribly bad at all. What? What made you want to write this book? I mean, we right bushels characters and, um, big failures and people book and cling to you. When you do that, you find one You know, focus on icon red fireball, Whoever and this By what I was looking for a topic of shock. You have Kobe of still huge characters. There's great stories, the fascinating span, so it wasn't that hard of a pig Catchers are pretty pretty good pick for for a book. Now, when you talk to me earlier this week because some of the stuff I got to rehash with because I think it's great background. You had a chance to Did you talk to shack for this book? Correct. Kobe would not speak write. Yeah, but you talked to shack and the Phil story is very interesting. Tell us about how you got to talk to Phil Jackson. But I am You're lucky the bus is helpful, and I am I asked her if she'd been hard again, Phil, and she said, Well, you know him and And I got in touch with them. And he said, do you want do it over the phone, and I said about Sara. Embedded in a coffee shop, and I thanked him personally. Did not do it for you of nicotine. I thought this would last longer when we spent eight hours together driving today. Give me a tour Lake lunch that we went back to his house and sat there shattered rocking chairs, and then you want to get dinner later and I said, OK, so take this. Eat our spend the day with still Jackson. Raffle prize except to be as it was one of the great journalistic Not, you know, And we all know like Kobe is not here. Teo say anything different? Whatever. So it's it. I know that that could be a sensitive type of thing for this for this book, Jeff, and I'm sure that you and you've talked about it a little bit in your own right. But So we go into what these guys. His perceptions were of the late great Kobe Bryant because he will reach a point of legacy that right now we talk about him being one of the greatest ever and yes, because he passed away in such a fashion that it does heighten those senses. And when you hear on Phil well, when Philip and when Phil passes, he will be a legend in his own right. He already is a legend. So when I hear Phil, talk about him I think it's I think it's so much different from anybody else's perspective because he's handled not just Kobe, but also Michael and Scottie and Shack. Obviously. So there's so much there. What did Phil say about his relationship with Kobe Bryant? That maybe we didn't know. Well. It was a complicated one. I mean, I heard about the returns. So I think you've got much better during his sort of return Aftershock left. I was something Kobe didn't realize how much you needed. So Jackson going a year without aftershocks left after still left. Kobe was really hard to coach really hard. The codes and people say, Oh, it was like hosting Jordan was nothing like coach Jordan Jordan. It's Jordan. They almost had had a I almost teammates or partners like business partners and Phil took over the job. Explain to Michael Jordan. Look, we're gonna have this trying offense. You're going to score a few. You know, fewer points, but we're gonna win. And you're gonna be the star of that. Jordan bottom with Kobe. It was we're going to do this offense is gonna be. The centerpiece is gonna be the number two, but we're gonna win a lot. Just wasn't how Koby was programmed with the answers a lot of running the triangle for Kobe Bryant, and he did. When you get it was often didn't want you and by the end at Otisville forces if you want to the finals against us, right? I was kind of done with it on times during that last year's don't fill, just ensuring whether we take the women with Kobe anymore. Whether it's worth considerably more to the team would actually better off without Kobe because he was so independent? I have You know of coaching and itjust legend Awkward relation. Jeff Pearlman joining us on the show yet how much it went. When you talk to Phil and you said, You know, there's that that difference when, when Phil came back how much growing up to Kobe do during that time between would feel left the first time and then came back. I could get a decent now I think when you really matured Was when he kind of came face to face with basketball limitations. You know when he got hurt later in his career. Then, when he wasn't uses an older player, and he didn't have the explosiveness, and it's very, very high percentage was this guy who genuinely needed help from teammates and You know, guys like you and a little muscle, Dick Young would come along, and suddenly they were better and probably better players and in many ways I think when you're happy to be in your career It's almost a really important, okay. Didn't remind you that this isn't gonna last forever Diseases and last forever. So I think I think that was really, really important becoming an older, clever realizing I have to move onto my next My next material life. For him. Personally talking about Kobe, Jeff Pearlman joining us on the show, author of three Ring Circus, the Crazy Years of Shaq, Kobe Shaq filling the crazy Years of Lakers dynasty. Kobe Bryant. You'll fill comes in. He already has gravitas. He already has championships. Why was trust so hard to come by for Kobe? I mean, that's a loaded question. There was more He was sort of created and developed. In an era of kind of me, me, me basketball, and that's not bad is it sounds like Iverson was the product of that Margaret was a product of that A lot of guys are products of that. Which is your your own brand. You are sort of It revolves around you mean Kobe was in high school and got his own sneaker deal from Adidas eventually dictated that he not be drafted by the New Jersey Nets. We're going to take him to number 8 96. Scoring was really important. You know what Jerry West came along. Elgin Baylor came along. Priority truly was winning. And if you scored a lot of points, I was exactly the priority for guys like that Oscar Robertson, creamy that they was winning. And there was a mind set that came along. In the nineties and maybe late eighties where you You need to be the Alfa and some guys are made to be alpha. There was even a term that was used in basketball. During whatever magic and bird Alfa And I think we was sort of always thought of himself as corn accorded outside. You needed to be the man and he needs to score a lot of points.

Uh, it's been up and running about three years now. Yeah, it's Ah, and it gets a lot of traction on DH. That's where you can find great, great great baseball pros. You were one of your one of The unique people. In baseball that that saw Tom Seaver pitch before he came here to Cincinnati and then watched him pitch while he was here in Cincinnati. Tom Seaver passing away this This past week at the age of 75 Seaver from a distance. I don't know what kind of interaction you had with him before he came to Cincinnati, but from a distance. Was he the same kind of player and person when he arrived here that you had you had watched and covered before? He was the same pitcher on the field, but he was not the same person that I encountered is a visiting writer. He didn't suffer fools very well. And if you interviewed him And didn't come up with great questions that he would stare at you like you had a hole in your forehead and just kind of shake his head. Everyone. Tio Cincinnati. Ah Ah, Be writers. He treated very well and got one tremendously with him. What would what would what would make him shake his head and make him look at you like you had a hole in your head? What kind of questions? Basic questions. The general questions like Well, how did you feel out there today? Ah, you know what kind of fish did you throw him? He was more deeper than that very intelligent guy. Hey, would be sitting in the clubhouse, working The New York Times crossword editor by himself, filling in and quickly but just a very, very intelligent guy. I always wondered if the his massive thighs I wonder where in the world he brought his pants because then it would fit on those ties, and that's where he got the power for his pitching, But Yeah, you know, he showed up in Cincinnati who would have thought the New York Mets would ever trade the best pitcher going at the time, but he had a little feud going on with him. Donald Grant. Chairman of the board, and I was absolutely stunned when the announcement was made at Seaver was coming to Cincinnati. He had a problem, too, with a particular writer in New York and acerbic writer Dick Young, who worked for several publications in New York and Last week when Theo obituaries were written and the opinion pieces were written it it almost sounded like that. What was going on is an ongoing feud with that guy. Aided and abetted his his departure from New York as Muchas M. Donald Grant, the owner of the Mets at the time, and and what he was trying to accomplish with Seaver. Do you think I mean, can a newspaper guy really run another? Can He really run a a baseball player out of town? I certainly wouldn't think so. I know that that big young if hey, didn't like you He had a real poison pen. And he could be very acerbic as you said, and I know he and Seaver did not get along. But I would be stunned if ah, guy of serious magnitude who was the king of the King of Queens were quite a writer running out of town. I think it was more his troubles with the chairman of the board. 70 61 14 for the Mets Metal the 77th season. Hey arrives here and I think what I think when he left the match. He was seven and three. He arrives here on DH. The Reds were in the process of dismantling the big red machine. And so I looked, and I looked at that trade at the time as being a trade of mixed message. How can you be dismantling the big Red machine and then trade for one of the most dominating pitchers in baseball? It made no sense really did it..

And Dick Young was a writer for I believe the Daily News two time whatever paper was, I think it was daily news at the time. And he wrote an article. How Ah Nolan Ryan was making more money than cva. And at Nancy Cva was jealous. I guess of Ruth Ryon polarize wife because Nolan was making more money than Topsy Wass. And that was the article that you know, young put that out there, and that was it, Steven said. That's it, You know, I mean, it's even I wanted to leave. I don't want you know you get along with Grant. He didn't want to leave and that put him over the top. So that's it. Get me out of here, And that's that's what I also think. Jean's missing the point on two fronts. All right, Number one. The fact of it is that even though he was 32, I'm glad you brought. You pointed it out. They had plenty of good years left. Oh, my God. He had some very good years that he very Well could have won the Cy Young in 1981. He finished second that year toe Fernando Valenzuela in this strike force feed it to that year for yes, taken. He had some really good years like we talked about it with the White Sox. Yeah. Metz let him going. 83 sets of good years with the White Sox in Chicago. His last year in the majors was 86. His last kind of full year in the majors was 85. He was 16 and 11. Right? 31 70, R A and a 33 starts. Happy 40, So the idea he didn't have much left is false. But here's the thing. The really big thing that I think Jean is missing, and this is what's affected me all these years later as someone that didn't even experience the trade There is something magical. Ask Yankee fans. By the way, there is something magical. There's something special about an all time great player playing for your team and no one else. That matters. That is not something the Met fan has been able to say about really anybody. Now. David did end up playing his whole career with the Mets. I love David. Right, right. He's not a whole Famer. He's not seeing Tom Seaver. No. No, and that's why Two years ago. I guess it was two years ago. Now, when there was this talk of Jacob to Graham and a contract, should they trade him? Look, I love J cakes. My favorite guy. He's not Tom Seaver was never going to be Thompson. I'll be the first one to admit it. They should never even be compared. But a part of why re signing him was so important Was the ghost off the mistake that this franchise made in 1977, which wants even someone like me who wasn't alive for it. It matters, spending your whole career with the same team and Tom Seaver would have wanted that. As you pointed out, he understood the history of the game. And because of mismanagement that we can't even blame on the Wilpons because well prior to them, they messed it up..

"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 had my transistor radio with me. It's ah handheld radio. You put batteries in and there was a little dialogue and you listen on the radio kids. And I was listening in the marquee in the postgame show Reds wrap up and I will never forget hearing Marty break the news that the Reds had just acquired Tom Seaver. I'll never forget turning up the volume of my transistor radio and on that walkway that overpass everybody else walking out of the game around me. Hearing that news They get Tom Seaver in exchange for Pat Zachary, Doug Flynn, Steve Henderson and Dan Norman. The belief was, it was just what the Reds needed.

"Seaver and Dick. Young portrays their roles during a decade of flux and uncertainty. Give me a little more information about how they factored into this. Well you mentioned there were what sticky on and he was a really interesting character because he was kind of the the old school in that he was from the Jimmy Cannon back in fifty s Jimmy Cannon would come and he was a sports writer and he had a lot of power because he wrote these Inciteful pieces about Players but he also had a way of mythology ising players you know like Mantle and Dimaggio. These guys were kings. Dick Young was from his school. He was a a for lack of a lack of a better expression. Let's say a blue collar writer for blue-collar New York and he was covering the players and telling more about their lives now he wasn't really Not He was still a mythology builder but he was starting to get into More than just the game. You know one of the things that was happening newspapers back. Then would you started having morning editions and afternoon editions. So the morning edition guys would cover the scores and the afternoon addition needed. Something else to write about because the scores already covered. Well Dick Young kind of was the Passed the baton from Jimmy Cannon. To a group of sports writers called the chipmunks. No that's an informal name. But these guys like Phil Peppy Stan Isaacs those are the guys who were the afternoon writers who really started writing more about the personal lives of the players. This is something that never really came out before if you were a fan in the sixties to find out what these guys were doing at home To find out things that were happening off the field but they were looking for stories they needed to fill the paper and that of course Really paved the way for Jim down to come along and start telling stuff that's what's happening off the field but it was stuff that was a little more You see so to speak. You know it wasn't. It wasn't as harmless what those guys were writing but what is interesting about is that what made you think. Young and interesting character is he was kind of in my mind. The the pivot from one to the other you know he kind of took the baton Jimmy Cannon and passed it off to the chipmunks. I don't know if he weren't there Whether or not that that move would have been made smoothly. One of the things I like about this book is. It's not only about things serious but also it has some very very funny stories and I've always said I think baseball more than any other sport lends itself to Great Sports Stories and one of the examples you have is about the nineteen sixty five world series and about Sandy Koufax. I'll let you tell story. Well Colfax the interesting thing about that story with Colfax is that he didn't WanNa Pitch. Because it was Yom Kippur. So he sent him not going to pitch in the world series because it's a holiday and he was Jewish but he was not a really religious guy He he just felt. I don't pitch on Yom Kippur so one of the things. We talked about in the book which is not the story. I'm sure you're referring to but is that to this day rabbis. We interviewed rabbis for the book and they sent to this day. Children come in when they're getting by Mitch fit or botnets fit and they say that one of the most important Jewish role models. They have in life one of the top. Three people are Santa Colfax to this day and he had no idea of the statements. He was making and tire community when he said. I'm not gonNA pitch on Yom Kippur. So that really had lasting effect on society in Jewish Society but he didn't pitch so don Drysdale took the ball that day and he goes out and he gets shellacked. So we'll allston comes out so the mounts take non drysdale out because he's not getting hit and because he's getting hit and Drysdale look sediments says I bet right now wish. I was Jewish to any other stories in this book. That kind of leave you chuckling today even when you think about them well. I kind of dumb. But I'll tell you one story that I was thinking about before when we were talking about Dick Young Is that there was a writer. Joe Trembled. Who is sports beat writer? Who was covering the World Series when Don Larsen fifty six when Don Larsen throws the perfect game and he's got to get a story out right away? This is one that would just the morning writers. We spoke about morning afternoon writers. But he's got to get something right away because it's going to be in the morning edition the next morning edition. And he's stumped. He's looking at it. He's got a deadline. The clock is ticking and somebody just pitched a perfect game in the world series. This is an unbelievably big moment. That was handed to him and he froze and he couldn't come up with anything and he turns to somebody and he says get me. Dick Young young comes over. This young was not a veteran at this point but he was like a cool customer and tremble. Sentiment says I I'm stuck so the youngsters are typewriter sits down and he hammers out one cents and when Trimble looks at the sentence he says okay. I got it from here. Don't worry your your work here is done and the sentence done Dick. Young hammered out and that typewriter was today. The imperfect man pitched a perfect game and that was the line that's set tremble tremble on a lot of words for that story and young never said anything in fact when it was Dick Young's trembled was retiring. Kyung was there trembled. Says you know I have to admit something that I never admitted to anybody else. And he tells the story. I've won many awards for this particular. Gave me the first line he said? But I've never told anybody that's story and what makes me What makes me Love Vic Young? So much is that he never told anybody that story either. I'm also interested in the integration of baseball because I was a youngster growing up in Washington. Dc and Calvin Griffith was the owner of the Washington senators at that time and He was not a very tolerant or open minded man and there were a lot of owners that were like that so as the integration of baseball came along I think they went kicking and screaming some of those owners in baseball. Well you mentioned Calvin Griffith. I mean he moved the senators to Minnesota. They became the Minnesota twins but the reason that he moved them out there because he wanted to move. The demographics were wider so he took his team. He just upped and left What's interesting in the book is that we talk about in nineteen sixty six how the Milwaukee braves came to Atlanta because entry young and others Atlanta civil rights leaders and the mayor of Atlanta Ivan Allen. We're trying to build an integrated city from the top down. And they said well. We need to legitimize. This is a baseball team and stadium. Because that's when you really on the map and they had to woo Hank Aaron and the braves to Atlanta and iron was didn't want anything to do with the south. He had grown up in the sally at suffered enough as as a black man in the south but he came and that ended up really legitimizing the the city. And what's interesting is that now this this season Atlanta is moving out of that stadium. And they're moving to a white suburb but COBB county. I'm I'm not saying it's for the same reasons as Calvin Griffith. I mean. I'm not accusing anybody of anything. But it is interesting that the very reason. The team came there in nineteen sixty six. I guess those reasons don't matter as much anymore or maybe time has passed but for whatever reason they're now moving out to Cobb county so whatever. Edry young had done is kind of being raised. Now we have a little bit over. Two minutes. Left at the issue of race also touched other sports as well such as football because the Washington redskins were described as having the team colors of Burgundy gold and Caucasian. And I think about the issue even today about the use of the word redskins and I just shake my head. Well Yeah I mean and also now rob. Manfred just came out. I think it was last night was talking about the The Cleveland Indians Insignia to the the has the native American there. But it's the it's a very stereotypical image. I forget what they call it. They have a name for it. Well let me interject. Let me interject this. I had a discussion about the this sort of thing on the show one night and a woman called me from Milwaukee and she said I'm part native American and she said I just want everybody to know. How do I describe to my daughter that we don't look like the Cleveland Indians Character? Right exactly exactly right and yet you know there's still there's still a struggle over it so all these years later that's one of the interest. I have to say. That was one of the most interesting things about researching and writing. This book is how many of the issues we were talking about. Atlanta coming into building their stadium. But there's so many issues even with riot race and civil rights that are still around today. It's amazing to read what was going on in the sixties and to see so many of the same things popping up now. It doesn't feel. It felt very topical even though we were writing something that was fifty years old and we only have a minute left. But what do you want people to take away from this book John? Well I think that There's a lot of people in that book that deserve a lot more credit than they ever got. I think Marvin Miller certainly belongs in the hall of fame. He he turned the game on its ear and I don't think he ever got the recognition he deserved. And I think guy like Jim Belton who came along and wrote what is now that the New York Public Library calls one of the one hundred greatest books of the twentieth century most influential books of the twentieth century. It's still Ostracized some degree for Major League Baseball for writing this book fifty years ago but look at what he paid for other people so I think a lot of things that went on in the sixties and the people in the characters involved people today fans today don't realize that what they're looking at as a result of the the the stands that people like curt flood took and the risks that Jim Belton took in the heart sweat that Marvin Miller put into the game. This is the fruits of their labor. What we're watching now John. Congratulations to you. And it's an outstanding book. I'm looking forward to reading it from cover to cover because I know your work and and this is just another aspect of it and it's just an outstanding book. Thanks a lot for joining us. John Florio with us John Florio with US and The name of the book is called. One Nation under baseball out the nineteen sixties collided with the national pastime.
