"Double last night but maybe the real story Lakers three point shooting, they shot forty, two, three pointers they made fourteen, thirty, three percent. If you include in the bubble, the regular season and the playoffs, the Lakers now five and eight when they shoot thirty three percent or less from three point range, they're twelve and one when they shoot better than thirty three percent in the playoffs in the bubble ten and when they shoot over thirty three percent on three pointers I still go back to Anthony, Davis can't take fewer. Than more kief Morris. Anthony Davis has and that's a hard rule. Like Frank Vogel's gotTa say and by the way, Lebron Anthony Davis has to take more shots shots than more kief Morse. Bringing. Reggie Miller Hall of Famer Turner, Sports, NBA analyst reg what the heck happened last night. While To Your Points Anthony Davis has to stay on the floor foul trouble. I think that contributed to mark Morris having more shot at Champs is because Anthony Davis but was parked on the bench because of that foul trouble. But you and I going back to the beginning of the playoffs said for the Lakers to win a championship. AD has to be the best player over Lebron on the floor and he was these first two games of the NBA finals. He gets in foul trouble. Now you if you're frank, will you go to plan B. to try to you know mix and match your your team in your effort, and again let's give Miami the credit Jimmy Butler because they played spectacular and living here in La I know people think this guy following because the Lakers lost with the heat missing to starters in drag inch and Bam out of bio but it's one gain in what you're telling me is for Jimmy Butler do have a forty point triple double Kelly Olympic grade in made shots. And they still scratch and claw to win that game. They would to play like that the rest of the way to beat the Lakers. That's why. This is not that big of a deal. It's one game where the sky was falling when they lost the Houston game one skyward Holler when they lost to Portland game on, would they go on and do when four straight so I'm not worried about that. They're still up to hundred series and now with all this negative press coming forward, Lebron which wrong. He may have lost his finally BP. Chances. To is is is really tick off the Lakers in. We'll see a much better performance in game for what if you read an article that just said, Hey, you know what acknowledged the heat Jimmy Butler great performance and you know Lebron's going to win his fourth title Anthony Davis going to be the MVP nobody's writing that even though deep down, they probably feel that but Jimmy Butler after Lebron says to him in the first quarter year in trouble. And then Jimmy Butler comes back in the fourth quarter and says to Lebron urine trouble. That's I mean crab love that. Great, I mean. This your to superstar Roman at one another which normally doesn't happen. Normally, you pick on other guys that you know you can kind of get in their heads but Jimmy Butler responding to the king which I love. But again. Without to starve and not knowing if Obama's going to be available in game for I, I really don't see gorn coming back with a torn. Bash it. Who knows depends on how how big terrorist navy comes back I'm not really sure but how effective Kenny be on that?.
New York Yankees to host Miami Marlins in the Bronx
"Though the Yankees aren't going to be playing their wild card, Siri's in the Bronx, they would like to go into the postseason playing much better than they are right now. Just haven't played clean enough baseball and obviously we're gonna have to do that if we're going to reach our goal. Aaron Boone's Yankees, losers of five out of six after the Marlins top them for three on Friday, and extras they hit into five double plays, committed four errors. Aaron Judge called it a mental mistake. I'd rather get him out of the way now.

"Unfortunately last week, we talked about Mike, Rizzo's terrific job with Washington The angels You you're right. You're you make an excellent point. Tony you'd think there'd be leeway with sixty games, but I've heard that already Marino is patience is running thin. Thin with the angels avidly switched quickly with AAs messy was on there for a year and then burnt Joe Madden and so billy Adler, the GM I think is on the hot seat I. think that's unfortunate I likely uplift. Very much. I. Think he'll be a terrific executive and I'd like to see him get an longer than this. But you know obviously the big signing a you know he may take the hit even those whose probably the owner's decision. Again is very early in the season, we'll see but anti don't sitting around one hundred to start I mean he's a terrific hitter and he'll come out of it certainly but you've got the injury to Tani that hurt them Pools is on the way down You know billy uploaded was not there for that signing that was Jerry dipoto moved onto Seattle's teams, got its own issues but. I think they've done a good job rebuilding the farm. It's much better. But the JOE, Adele their top prospect is come up early on very early on, he's he's looked a little bit over at the plate. And of course, he had that ball that bounced off his went over the fence for what I think is a home run, but they've got porges era. For CELEK. Judges are tough tough year for everyone all around. But I'd like to see billy up get more of a chance. But I do think that he is in the hot seat in La or la of Anaheim Anaheim, whatever you WANNA call it. The. Four base they. Get. Into a pretty rough. Out. Nowadays so surprising to hear that are lastly John What are you hearing on Francis and well first of all get into the way I. Think I mentioned this before he very unlikely to be traded it just A. Difficult season to give up huge prospects, we really can't be guaranteed that the season is gonNA finish. So I. Just don't see him being traded I. also think clearly it's going to be in it. They're pitching. It's too good even without Zach, police act, and so I don't see it being traded. But in terms of being signed up, I think people understand. It's very unlikely that the the Indians are going to be able to come up with the money to to to sign him, they have negotiated with them a bit. Bit, on occasion, they have made efforts. No question that Cleveland has made as made dries, but their revenue is just not in that ballpark to sign a player, this ilk, and I I think indoor one of the top five players in the game You know he's fantastic shortstop with power energy. Anything you want to say about him. Fantastic. But in terms of his asking price it's going to be tough for Cleveland I've heard that he's asking for the very top dollar as in the top, the the highest that make. Inventing words, it's so high the highest amount Trout is the highest right e. his is deal including the two years that were. Already had with worth four, hundred, twenty, million, I believe for twenty, six million, and then you've got pets with three, sixty five. Even if you go there, that's still too much for Cleveland. But I heard without hearing the specific figure. He's looking to be paid with the very top players in the game. So that's why you WanNa take that as by tragedy don't count by drought, it's either four, twenty, six or sixty five. That's a lot of money for the Cleveland Indians to to pay. Certain forecasting padre should be paying close attention to because then player plays same position berry similar in how they played a game could be something you're looking at John as always appreciate the INFO on in cycle.

"Are John It is time. Now for our inside corner were you kinda give us the updates on what you are hearing on around Major League Baseball. Let's start with the starting pitching that could be available country. Did I mean it's difficult to predict on this but you know because there are so few teams are really eliminated his point. I'd say everybody but Pittsburgh's in in the National League and the American, league? Is, probably, only three teams that are. More than three game depending on when you listen to this one, three games out of the wild card. So difficult to predict, but it's always interesting. Only three weeks away. So I look at the Al West as a as a spot where it could be some features training. It's going to be so much competition. Clearly, a seller's market If you've got twenty teams in it or thinking, they're ended or more sixteen teams are going to make it. So may twenty five teams think they're in it, but I didn't Dylan Bundy off to a very nice start with angels. That team is not also good start. We shall see I don't know how easily they're going to give up. They had a big expectations for this year after getting run don't and Joe Madden, but I I would say he'd be a possibility. Seattle to me. They're not a contender, not sure what they're doing the always confound being I don't get it. Marco Gonzales has been very solid pitcher though and they've had him signed up and. They have like him. So reps, they don't want to trade him, but they get the right price. I think Jerry Dipoto apt to trade anybody That's a possibility in what? Everyone thought the Astros, we're going to be a shoe in a with eight teams making it I. Thought it was going to be difficult for them. This. You have to see him in spring training. Obviously, with a pandemic of a lot has changed, they have not performed to this point though so I'm not going to rule out trade from them and Zach Cranky would be a guy last straight at the. The last deadline, and that was kind of at the last second that he was traded anti still retains that value because he is throwing very very well, and could help somebody and obviously with ver- lander, hurt at the moment and Suna out at the moment all the different struggles I would say that to buzz ability. Texas. I. Think. They're going to hang in there, but if they don't they've. They've got to great young grow say young great rotation options in minor. Inland Lynn has been fabulous so far this year, the teams would look at. It would want quite a bit for either one of them. So I think a lot of the action could be in the West. It's probably not three weeks. It's early to talk. I, also look at Johnny, Cueto is a guy who can step in. In there. He did it for the royals a few years ago, helped them win a world series, and if Robbie ray gets on track like he can't, he is very talented, a free agent after the year, maybe Arizona's not going to be in, they were one of my surprise fixed, but that's another guy I think could be traded. But that's my early picks for starting pitchers to be traded. Yeah, Cueto could be an interesting one, seemingly starting to find his rhythm on the Mount. One of the issues. This year John is with no minor baseball. A lot of these prospects are really with our place to play what are you hearing in terms of prospects, and possibly some of those guys, we've done a few already, Joe Adele is up. Obviously, we saw Spencer Howard throw for the Phillies, his debut event much-heralded debut. Debut, but I got a list of close to ten guys who I think could come up this year may come up and could help teams, Gavin lots obviously with the dodgers great hitting infielder, Mackenzie Gore, the padres could call up another guy, already call up the Tino left-hander. A big guy got four pitches should be star this level at any level and Alex Bom. Another guy for the Phillies Baseman has got big, power. Killing it with the the mariners. All about prospects at this point, he's one of the better ones in baseball joey bar catcher with the giants He's a big time power prospect, Dylan Carlson with the cardinals. We hope they get playing at some point here pretty soon. But he's one of the better prospects. In Baseball, Casey is was number one all round, pick a few couple years back and he's got a credible split finger and he certainly going to be up a pitch a rotation fairly soon and the other guy. The last guy would be curious off. Alex cure love with the twins who's ready on Orthodox left handed power hitter course. Do the twins need any more power. So I think all of them. He's probably the least likely, but that's just a matter of the team that he's with and the needs that they have. Court global. Yeah. Let's early was shown her issue. Young Corey Kluber is the news is not to optimistic on Corey Kluber. Early on with said that the maybe rejoined the bullpen for the final couple of weeks of the season. My understanding is just a very just because the shortness of the season, very slim chance that he will be able to get back. This is not a career threatening. Injury than not believe. He'll be a free agent after the year and sign elsewhere. But HE'S Very likely done for the year. That's really unfortunate for Corey Kluber. Great. Yes. You're absolutely right. A lot of good. PITCHERS nobody like Garrett Cole. Maybe. But Garrett Colds Nemesis driver bowers off too big star. You've got exactly. You Got Paxton. Tanaka. Minor I, mean there there isn't solid. It's a very nice solid list of starting pitchers. Is, we're asking this question, a six game season. You would think there would be a little more leeway, but are there some on the Haji? Yeah. This is almost like a regular, a regular thought for US each week..

"There's a lot of teams have some very young guys. They've probably don't plan on calling the big roles. At all this season, but they did want their prospects to continue to develop in. That's been a tragedy that there's some type of all league. Able to happen. Maybe we can get some type of thing that makes us safer out here for everybody. In these, we can have some sort of leagues for the prospects during the winter. That that would be great. As far as manjit at both, we're here to win right in and you're going, give your your young guys a chance when they fit into what you're doing. Out A Monterey or any of our young guys, a jazz riner needed. We're GONNA. We're GONNA tap them in right. Any protect them along the way So it's hard to say. How do you protect that development? The way as you give them a day when they're really struggling, you continue to help them get better They're gonNA, they may take their lumps. But whatever it is, that's going to be good for him. You know you take your lunch, a Lotta, times, it's good for you because it puts you where it is. We see prospects come up all the time that are touted the top ten top fifteen, and they get chewed up and spit out in this lake because every note everybody starts game planning, everybody knows where to go and then once one team finds the whole. You'RE GONNA to. It's GonNa get poured into that hole until you make an adjustment so. It is a little tough. That's been the tragedy of the season for me is is not having a minor league season where you're young players continued to get better. I'm with you on that one agree on. aggie lar-. Dickerson, and some of the veteran guys that you mentioned a solid major leaguers. But you've A-team of a twenty eight. Now, I believe I, it's hard to keep track with what things are going on right now. But How many the guys did you not know I? Think a lot of people don't know allow your, but you didn't know how many of the guys when you started up in Baltimore and who has really stood out to you. I mean not looking at it. Umberto, he coming from able that was pretty good story and Eddie Alvarez a speed skater. I? mean. He's pretty acrobatic in the field that those new standards for me. Because I've been watching all your games. About for you who's really stood out. Of there's been a well, I mean, obviously, it's been a short period of time in the guys you mentioned Yup Eddie. Alvarez. We're both guys we hadn't in spring in in the summer camp Ed is a great story in a stable. Guys talk about him within our organization in what kind of what he was a, but this guy's pretty good player. Now, he can play all over the field. He's a switch hitter. He's smart This guy surprised me how good he was in east struggled a little bit early got three hits. Yesterday made a couple of great plays. The other night to to save a game for us Umberto, another, guy. I. Think. It just tells you where we feel like our. Our organization is going with depth when you get a guy that's enable, but they did put him on the forty man roster. So they knew some things about him as a strike thrower. He gets three or four pitches over he. If you watch that game the other night in Francisco wherever he put the gloves, Umberto was close and he was thrown into, it was raining pretty hard. It was fairly get muddy out there on the mound, he was unflappable rate. The other guys I didn't know quite as well. The Mike Marin Dustin Schaefer for some guys that we picked up on the way, our new instant had. Josh Smith in. Picked up. Left in Josh Smith's We had last year for short period of time so that there is a few guys they didn't know. But for the most part new, the guys came back. It was probably more of the pictures that we brought in that Justin Shave prison. Mike. Miranda. The world that it really now in the in the trade is going to be good for us Richard Bleier. A little in in a tricep other day. This guy's going to be good for us to not only issue, but I think long term guys can get left. He's out, but he's a little funky and got big movement He's another guy. We going to help assess this thing he's to get back. That I mentioned, we're talking about him. lassie guys were in. Kyle. In sync in terms of the philosophy. APP. As you start to rebuild in organization, you're trying to turn the corner. How important is it for the front office is. In the coach's coaching staff to really be on the same page in order to make distinct her It's I. Think you're talking about a bill with new ownership. And that's where I think. You gotTA give credits ownership to Derek What he has talked about doing from the moment he came in and Mr Sherman with ownership was that we were going to build this thing from the bottom up and he is connected. Derek, said a great job. I think of connecting all from development brought in. All the way to the major league side of it, there's there's a continuity in what we're trying to do. So now you're starting to get these guys in the minor leagues because we there's quite quite frankly talk about there's a lot of things that go on in our development to this great and do a lot of community. Stuff's they have a lot of meetings on talking about what our beliefs are and how we're. GonNa, go about things they bring in a lot bring in a lot of speakers from the standpoint of guys that we. We feel like that. Play the game ride have. Did it right of that? What we believe in? We believe in good teammates, right? We believe in doing it. Right? We believe that you should be a part of the community and you have a responsibility in that area. So Derek owners did a tremendous job I. think of creating a whole organization that is is kind of in sync from top to bottom and how we wanted to do it I. Think over time. You'RE GONNA see this organization. We feel like we're in a great spot. To grow. And get better and better. We are right at the the the point of turn the owner. I know we looked good right now, and I think we're going to continue that the moving forward. You feel like you're system stacked and it's GonNa continue to continue to keep improving you thing. I thought Derek did a good job with was he came out front had A. Call for everybody in which he explained a couple instances that he knew about where some of the players had slipped up early and it was easy to do, and you've got a thirty guys who are generally thirty years old or younger, and your case young So you know we get it. We understand that there are mistakes are going to be made I'm glad that he was upfront about that I heard secondhand that the quarantine tougher guys, but they did a good job sticking in there. Obviously, you had one guy, he saw deedee as. Potentially a very good player upped out How how did you keep these guys going through the quarantine, and now how do you keep them going in terms of doing the right thing? I know we have a compliance who is a compliance officer and How you keeping him, stay sticking to to all the protocols. We do have a couple of new guys. Compliance Officers coming into the organization through Melby. I think everybody has that. Now they've they've. The Protocols which is a good thing you know and I think the biggest thing is that for us is move forward. You know we we know we gotta stay healthy. You gotTa Take Care of ourselves and be quite honestly, we preach that the whole time from the moment we came back to summer camp. We talked about family taking care of each other Those type of things I think our situation really speaks to how dangerous viruses in how quickly it spreads because as Derek came out and talked about we could have been better obviously at the protocols and keeping them ask up and everything, but we did not have players running around, we did not have. have players going out other than going to get a cup of coffee, which was okay. which is part of the protocols which was fine to do. We didn't have guys breaking that protocol. We weren't going out at night running around hanging bars. So I think that was cleared that he made that is that that didn't happen. So it told us that the the. The virus was very, very contagious in very condemn it your club in quick. found. Out in also now the cardinals are finding out and I would not be surprised if it happens to somebody else at all because it. Happened so fast. That you you just can't even. It's crazy. It's crazy. So. Anyway, that's that's kind of way in our main thought really is we're moving forward. We're in a pennant race when you're in pennant race baseball is one of the things we tried to.
"don mattingly" Discussed on Big Time Baseball
"But he also gets a lot of those hits where he keeps a bat, the strike zone, he'll throw a ball out of her second because he puts it in play in those guys drive in runs, and you can't measure that because it doesn't come out as I I, can't our desert come out as high exit velocity. But that same guy that doesn't measure high exit, the also puts the ball in play. Pat, same. Path. Is a swing that either you get barely jammed and hit a ball over second as a lefty will say or short. In if you click that ball about an inch and a half further out, it's a ball in a gap or a home. So it's the right half that gets beat a little bit with a flat pass In that. If you catch the ball properly, then you got a home run. But on the backside of that, you get better hitters, you get guys at. A more that hit for a little higher average, and we know that are we hear that average doesn't matter anymore. But as I looked last year I, remember looking at one point like the top ten average guys and it was kind of from the to ninety on up. And we said that average doesn't matter. But all those guys were like Freddy Freeman Cranial. Rights. All, these guys were driving in eighty, nine hundred runs, but average doesn't matter. That's where I go back to yob at the same guy's hitting for average. Also, the guys that are driving in rents and there are some outliers. Right? There's some guys that hit three hundred that don't do any damage. But those are based guys get on base for the other guys. So there is a little mixture there that we I think we've been going for. Yeah. Absolutely. we mentioned Baltimore, before in this weird year they actually lead Washington last night and the game was suspended because the tarp malfunctioned of. So a typical of this year A weird outcome and I'm going to ask you to look at your crystal ball a little bit in this unusual year You are in first place percentage points. But actually behind in terms of the games, because of the brave played more games, very weird situation you came in with the rebuilding season, we thought. Lost eighteen players to the COVID situation. You're now seven and three to put on your crystal ball here. Are you a contender now? Do you think you'll be a buyer? Where do you think this will take us and the season and also, I, noticed that they called up a serviceable players who enabled you to win a lot of games and veterans, but it didn't call the big prospects. Is it possible that they'll call up by the Sanchez's and you have six inches in Asia, Sanchez and? Max Mayer, and some of the big prospects to our service clocks. Too, much of a hurdle here. Man, I forgot the first part of your question. You. Are you a contender now where where are you going from here? Do you think? We came thinking rebuild, but this your seven and three What do you think? Back to the beginning and I feel like I can unravel. It's You know we looked at this as a turning the corner year for us We've been building over the last couple of years and taking our lops and. You're always optimistic during those seasons, but obviously that those didn't work out. Very. Well, but we like this year was a turning the corner of the year with the guys that we brought in and Corey dickerson solid hitter. Jonathan, the are solid hitter. Lar- who we love and like a solid hitter and was read a candidate definitely bounce back. Matt. Joyce is a guy is gonNA contribute. Give us quality another left handed Bat our lineup in Francisco through Bailey, who almost invaluable to this young pitching staff. During this, you talk about our pitching and what's went on I mean Francisco is like a for me. He's a lot. Lot. Like a Yadi back there who runs a game has a great feel for the hitters and what's going on and then able to actually take a game plan in, but also make adjustments off that kind of in game, which is so important. So we were on the page of turning the corner and I think in I understand that outside of our clubhouse, maybe our organization. Organization There wasn't a lot of talk about the MARLINS. What we were capable of, but I know within our organization within our clubhouse, our guys had a belief in one, hundred, sixty, two game season that we compete in that started with the sandy out cantatas the Pablo. Lopez that Caleb Smith are pitching in as you mentioned, a lot of our prospects of their in. In that question, they're all. They were almost all at the triple, a a lot of them were at the triple a level. So when you talk about Hey Zeus Sanchez in lay windy as Monte Harrison, who's here right now sixto, Edward Cabrera, these guys were right at the edge of it. Right. So we knew we had a good staff going in and a good team. But we also knew that anything that happened during year. You felt like you were going to build absorb that, and then start mixing your top level prospects in your situation. Obviously. This year is different and you ask him if our contender absolutely because we knew going in sixty games by default are whatever reason this season you're in it, right? Everybody the shorten, its season depth of death does become important now because of all this, but usually in a one, sixty, two, the best team with the most depth, you see the dodgers in the Yankees have. have injuries, they absorbed. They bring guys in. You know they got guys stacked triple A. They're paying paying big, and that's where they beat you. But in a sixty game race, we're going to do with prospects. We've did you know creatively I feel like through through the waiver wire and what our front office has been able to do it in sixty game season, we're in it. And, it gets off to a good start at twelve or fifteen games I. mean. That's that's twenty three years. Right. You're in it. So we were in it, our guys believe it, and at this point we're going to be on the road. When we leave, we leave Buffalo, we're GONNA play two games off day-to-day I've got two games here. We're going to beat a close only days or guys that have been down. We're GONNA. We're. Get, ready, to get. Everybody back. Right So you know we wanted to hold down the fort were on this road trip been able to that. Hopefully, our guys can get back and get shaped quickly and then start mixing and matching those guys back into our club. And we feel pretty good about things. John I, know people probably think this, whatever it is. See. Up but in our clubhouse. Believe. We're we're going to be fighting with everybody else, and there's nobody out there that we're really afraid ups to decline with. Nobody dares. ACT OFF WE'RE GONNA respect you gotta respect. Jacob. degrom, and match all these guys you play against. We're not. We're not going to back off anybody. We're going to feel like we can win a day. Diet, you mentioned the mix of old in young in obviously in the sixty game season. As it's a dead sprint. How do you? How do you ma- hadn't managed really the the young guys in terms of their development al-also. Trying to win games in such a short season as I would be difficult to to. Kinda, had the balance between the two. I think the tragedy of their season. Is No minor legs? Or. backout were playing. We know where we're running around with mask and all the protocols and all that. So you know obviously that's not opt with no up situation with no fans. The tragedy has been all the kids down there that aren't developing right and you have X. Amount, and you see how rosters were built with sixty man..

"If he doesn't wind on. What would be the downside for him? To jump in, you know we've had these stories about the commissioner and his legacy. And I think you can make a ton of money. And the commissioners made a ton of money. I think he started to look at. How are people viewing me? What is my legacy going to be I? Don't know the commissioner. Obviously, he has a problem with me and or the show. He hasn't been on in seven or eight years, but. I respect what he does because he has. His job is to make money for the owners. That's that's what he does, and he does a great job. And he takes the slings and arrows. He takes bullets. You know from the media fans all of that, but here he is with Colin Kaepernick. And now, maybe with the Washington redskins. And maybe I'm speculating too much getting over my skis, but if I'm looking at the commissioner. I could see two things happening. Getting Kapernick on a roster. and. Changing The Washington redskins new. I see that. And I. Don't know how long he's going to stay. As the commissioner I don't know how long he wants to. But these are things that. Would be pretty prominent, and maybe he doesn't think about the hall of fame. Got Paul Tagliabue going into the hall of fame and he wasn't well liked. But he's he's going in the hall of fame. These are two things that this commissioner can hang his hat on. And it could open the doors. I think they'll whole fame. Yes. It's possible that I'm reading too much into this but I find it interesting that I mean obviously the the pressure to change the name kind of has to come from the investors. I guess right. If you're going to have all these business investors, they're going to pressure the Redskins to change the name, and they're also the same people that are probably GonNa make all the money off of the name change. That is true. If I'm Nike. I WANNA. Put pressure on the Washington Redskins to say hey, I think we need to change the nickname. We need some new merchandise here. It does feel like those who want change are gonNA. Make a lot of money off of this, and this goes back to what I've said about Daniel Snyder. You'RE GONNA. Make all of this new revenue. You can say. I didn't want to change this because his Daniel Steiner likes to say, we say hail to the REDSKINS. Fight for old D C. Well, that should be enough, right. You could get a whole new stream of merchandising money. We could help him with that. Yes, he plus all of the good pr of changing the name. Yes, it seems like a no brainer. But if you're the commissioner. You get capper Nick in the League, and now you change the nickname of the Washington redskins now people look at you differently mclovin. How's he supposed to get capital into the League? Though well, I know people keep thinking well. He'll just pressure some teams. I think you have to soften the stance of the NFL and their adverse reaction to Colin Kaepernick. The owners. And understanding that this is the what's going to happen during the season or prior to the start of games that will allow teams I. Think to have a little bit more open..
"don mattingly" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Right so the guy who found the card was entreat. How did you get involved so mark? Figured there has to be something there. He couldn't find anything on the Internet. He was posting on message boards. He finally gave up and reached out to me and said Sam solve this mystery. This was my sweet spot for baseball card collecting. Certainly when I was seven or eight years old. I would have memorized all the backs of the cards and I would have at the time thought. That Don Mattingly's birth certificate stated he was born in nineteen sixty two and so I was totally on board. There are birthday controversies for Major League baseball players frequently but there are two things that are interesting about this one is that it's don mattingly the superstar of the day and to is that he according to this card was making himself appear older instead of younger which is not how birthday lying. Normally you would lie to make yourself younger so that you are a better prospect or so that your team thinks you're gonNA age better. This made him look older and he was already a prodigy of baseball. He was a star prospect when he was very young he was a star in the majors when he was very young. His career ended when he was very young again. Like the the central mystery is. How could this? If it is in fact a secret about don mattingly how could any secret about don mattingly exist for very long? Because he was just famous he was in New York and yet somehow that fact seems to have been totally swallowed up. I am looking right now at the eighty seven card beautiful fake wood frame and Sam. The man is smoldering and has a mustache. That would put Tom Selleck. Shame yeah on mattingly was I mean maybe the most famous moustache in the Post Seventy S era. I'm now I've gotTA look you. Should you should look his eighty seven tops. All Star Card boy is really like a portrait of a man he was. He was precocious. I would say as a as a ballplayer as a leader as a superstar as everything back to the card and back to the mystery. The quote was don's birth certificate states. He was born in nineteen sixty two not nineteen sixty one. I'll show in most baseball records. So you get this assignment from a complete stranger on the Internet you decide to take it and when you start looking up you know his birthday and see what's out there. What is say not only does every official record up to that point in his career state him as being born in nineteen sixty one but every record official record since then states that he was born in nineteen sixty want. People are gonNA wonder why we're going on because it seems obvious that he was born in nineteen sixty one. Everybody agreed he was born in nineteen sixty one. There's a reference to him in the New York Times when he was in the minors and it states his age which was consistent with nineteen sixty. One there is a scouting report from his first year in professional baseball that his manager filed it is consistent with him born in nineteen sixty one. He appeared in faces in the crowd. Sports illustrated feature at on amateur ballplayers. And it also states that he was born in nineteen sixty one so even before Don Mattingley was famous. The world had agreed that he was born in nineteen sixty one. So the card references the birth certificate. Which as you point out whoever made the card says according to the birth certificate implying that they saw the birth certificate. Did you do the obvious thing? And try to find the birth certificate. I did I did. An Indiana does not make their birth certificates public records. So unless you are Don Mattingly or related to don mattingly you cannot access his birth certificate so I went to Don Mattingly to try to get don mattingly to get me his birth certificate and I went to the two most common places that you would go to to reach a major league manager slash former Yankee superstar. I went to his agent. I went to his club. Both of them said. Oh yeah no problem. We'll get you the official word on this. And then they both disappeared suggesting that there is more to the story and Don. Mattingly wanted me to know coming up. Let's discuss why learning more about baseball cards helped you solve this mystery?.

"Hi guys given everything that is happening in the world right now. Most of us are buying things online. I saw that. At and T. Started doing to really helpful things for those who want to buy a new phone or device online they are offering fast free non-contact delivery and curbside pickup. So the online shopping is a simple and safe as possible on top of that. They have a flexible return policy. You can shop at ease you can visit. Att Dot Com to learn how to shop online from the safety of your home. Twenty four seven subject to change restrictions apply. So you started off by looking for the birth certificate. Nothing tried to go to mattingly. Nothing looked up articles. They all said nine hundred sixty one from the time. What was your next move? The next move was to find the writer so I started trying to dig into the industry and see who was even writing these cards. These baseball cards are really interesting to me as a baseball writer because when I write an article about say don mattingly's birth certificate. They put my name on the top of it. I get credit a writer and tops baseball cards. They're une credited so somewhere there is someone or maybe someone's multiple people who were writing thousands and thousands of words about baseball players that were being read by millions of people including me. I will be honest. My theory was that the top's baseball card writer was some freelancer that they probably had a dozen different freelancers contributing these things and they were all lowly paid. Maybe unreliable and one of them decided as a prank that he was going to put this fake Don. Mattingly birthday in the goal was just to find out who had pranked the baseball card industry by putting a fake birthday and that was the most I was going to get but far from not serious freelancers you kind of find the opposite a total baseball obsessive who worked tops. Who was he? There was a guy whose name was bill. Haber and Bill Haber had been one of the tops employees who had done a little bit of everything for decades but he was mostly there to do the stats. He would you all the stats by hand. He would go home for the winter with these fourteen. By eleven sheets of BASEBALL CARDS STATS TALES? He would do all the calculations he would arrange them and then he would deliver them to tops and they would print them on the baseball cards. He was also in charge of writing. The backs of the cards and bill was besides being an extremely valuable employees tops. He was also kind of famous among baseball. Research circles for being able to hunt down obscure details about nineteenth and early twentieth century baseball players so that he could correct the record and it's really due to him that we know so much about early baseball and about the biographies of so many of these baseball players because he was spending almost all of his time and a lot of money looking up birth certificates looking up death certificates looking in public records and trying to get all the details of all these early baseball players and so he was the one who would have been in charge of the Don Mattingly. Nineteen seven tops. And if you know that about Bill Haber then it makes sense that he might also be really interested in. Don Mattingly's birth certificate. So did you get to ask Bill. Haber what happened? I would have asked him except that he died and so I couldn't ask him that I talked to his boss. Who is a guy named Phil Carter Phil Carter took over tops? Sports Division in nineteen eighty. And he's really responsible for a lot of the development of tops into this major brand with this wide body of different products and much more odd detail on the backs of the baseball cards. He was a English major when he was in college and he really took the backs of the cards very seriously. And when I told him the story of the Don Mattingly eighty-seven card he did not remember it specifically but he immediately started basically laughing because he said Oh yeah that immediately brings to mind bill ABOR BECAUSE BILL. Haber was obsessed with birth certificates. So what was your next move so the next move was to dig into Bill Haber? 'cause I was trying to hunt down. Why he would've thought that don mattingly's birthday was wrong. He would keep index cards for every player. Who Ever played and one of the index cards would be for how they died. One of them would be four their year they debuted and one of them would be for their birthdate and so on and so forth there. Middle Name would have an expert. Then he would keep these files in his basement and Phil remembers going down and seeing these rows and rows of of index cards filed away and so when he died his research had been donated to the Baseball Hall of fame. Because again bill abor was was was kind of a legend in this realm. And so I called the hall of fame and asked if I could sort of see the haber notes they send me two hundred pages of Don Mattingly stuff. Some sort of scanned memorabilia. Like his first You know the first paycheck received and then a lot of baseball articles that they preserve and it is there that we find two articles that would have appeared inside sports sections one thousand nine hundred eighty six one in nineteen eighty seven. Both about don mattingly's birthday so the first one says don mattingly is claiming that he is a year younger and that he told the Yankees this and he's proven he has offered to show them his birth certificate to resolve the mystery. The full story is that Don mattingly had been in a slump. He was tired of being asked questions about the slump. So he makes up this hoax. And he's trying to distract everybody from his numbers by giving them ally that they can dig into and they bite ask him about the birthday instead and it becomes this many new cycle. People are asking him like well come on really and he says. I've got the bursts of I and so on and then everything settles down. He gets them doubles. The slump ends. The world moves on and Bill. Haber having heard about this presumably writes a note to himself saying next year in the top's Card we're GonNa make sure that we correct the record about Don Mattingly's card. Because he would have been very interested in correcting the record about a player's birth certificate and then the next year. Somebody remembers that. First Story and ask Don Mattingly about it again and reporters keep pressing him. And this time he can't he can't keep a straight face and they get him to admit that that it was just alive and in the meantime. There's this this one little memento of the time. That don mattingly made up ally to try to distract the world from his slump and it is in tops baseball card packs. That are still unopened in baseball card shops today. Like I'm just imagining player. Telling me that today and I don't think I would believe most players there might be every so often a don mattingly comes into the game when you look into his eyes and you see as mustache and you just want to believe all of this started because a guy named mark was opened in a pack of cards and rewarding himself for applying for jobs data job. He did get a job. He bought a box of twenty four packs and it took him twenty two packs to be honest. I think he might have gotten the job a little bit earlier. If he hadn't been so distracted by the Dawn. Manningly goose chase. He got a Job. He still has two packs left. If anybody needs the motivation I might be at Hook you. Thanks so much SAM.
"don mattingly" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"I mean you were sort of detective. Was I a slew? Sam Miller writes about baseball for ESPN. He's also apparently a private investigator. Sam this story begins with a random pack of baseball cards purchased in a card shop like all great stories who opened that pack. And why so? This was a gentleman named mark. Who was out of work? And he needed motivation to fill out job. Applications and so. He decided to bribe himself with baseball cards so he went to a car shop and found a box of unopened. Eighty-seven tops eighty-seven tops very distinctive set. And it has this fake wood paneling and I think a lot of people really consider that one of the best tops designs and so he got this set of classic cards from the Junk Wax era and he opened one for every job interview and then he would do what he did when he was a kid where he would flip it over and you know look at the stats and then read the biographical information and then toss him aside and so while. He's doing that. He flipped over. And it's Don Mattingly Guard. Don Mattingly The star of the day and he sees this one sentence that jumps out at him which is as follows. Don's birth certificate states. He was born in nineteen sixty two not nineteen sixty one as shown in most baseball records. So this is like this moment where he goes wake I you know. He's never heard that and he starts trying to dig into it to see if he can find any explanation at all. What this sentence means. It's true it's not true. There is a birthdate on every baseball card. It's not like they quit the wrong birthday. Which is a easy enough typographical error. They wrote Don's birth certificate states. They claimed to have seen his birth certificate. I think we're hitting pause to explain to people why this is a big deal because it's not just some random player right. Who according to this card has been playing under a false age? All along at age matters when we look at players in their records and legacies. This is don mattingly. Don Mattingly in the mid eighties was the biggest star in the game fully. Mattingly it's unbelievable. Don just tighter record homerun in eight consecutive games. He was in New York he was an MVP one year. He finished second the year upper four batting a new major league single season record. Grand Slam. There was really. I think a sense among baseball fans and kids at the time that Don Mattingley was the next great historic figure in baseball and his cards. Were the car you wanted to pull like his nineteen eighty two rookie card. There was a period where it was going for one hundred dollars when there were no other cards. That were a hundred dollars. They weren't fifty years old and so it is an odd detail about a superstar. Who would have been of interest to everybody all right so the guy who found the card was intrigued? How did you get involved so mark? Figured there has to be something there. He couldn't find anything on the Internet. He was posting on message boards. He finally gave up and reached out to me and said Sam solve this mystery. This was my sweet spot for baseball card collecting. Certainly when I was seven or eight years old. I would have memorized all the backs of the cards I would have at the time thought. That don mattingly birth certificate stated he was born in nineteen sixty two and So I was totally on board. There are birthday controversies for Major League baseball players frequently but there are two things that are interesting about this one is that it's don mattingly. The superstar day in two is that he according to this card was making himself appear older instead of younger which is not how birthday lying. Normally you would lie to yourself younger so that you are a better prospect or so that your team thinks you're going to age better. This made him look older and he was already a prodigy of baseball. He was a star prospect when he was very young he was a star in the majors when he was very young. His career ended when he was very young again. Like the the central mystery is. How could this? If it is in fact a secret about don mattingly how could any secret about don mattingly exist for very long? Because he was just so famous he was in New York and yet somehow that fact seems to have been totally swallowed up. I am looking right now at the eighty-seven card beautiful fake wood-frame and Santa Smoldering and has a mustache. That would put Tom Selleck to shame. Yeah Don Mattingley was I mean. Maybe the most famous moustache in the post seventies era on. Now I've got to look up. Oh you should. You should look his eighty-seven tops. All Star Card. Boy Is really like a portrait. Of Man he was he was precocious. I would say as a as a ballplayer as a leader as a superstar as everything so back to the card and back to the mystery. The quote was don's birth certificate states. He was born in nineteen sixty two not nineteen sixty one Show in most baseball records. So you get this assignment from a complete stranger on the Internet you decide to take it and when you start looking up his birth date and see what's out there. What does it say? Not only does every official record up to that point in his career state him as being born in nineteen sixty one but every record official records since then states that he was born in nineteen sixty one. People are going to wonder why we're going on and on because it seems obvious that he was born in nineteen sixty one. Everybody agreed he was born in nineteen sixty one. There's a reference to him in the New York Times when he was in the minors and it states his age which was consistent with nineteen sixty. One there is a scouting report from his first year in professional baseball that his manager filed it is consistent with him being born in nineteen sixty one. He appeared in faces in the crowd. Sports illustrated feature at on amateur ballplayers. And it also states that he was born in nineteen sixty one so even before Don Mattingley was famous. The world had agreed that he was born in nineteen sixty one. So the card references the birth certificate. Which as you point out whoever made the cards has according to the birth certificate implying that they saw the birth certificate. Did you do the obvious thing? And try to find the birth certificate did I did. An Indiana does not Make their birth certificates public records so unless you are Don Mattingly or related to Don Mattingly. You cannot access his birth certificate so I went to Don Mattingly to try to get don mattingly to get his birth certificate.
"don mattingly" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Mlb The show. Because it's something that clearly a lot of guys are starting to get involved in and more guys are getting interested in opening twitch accounts Lucas Jr Alito Chicago. White Sox. He just opened up a twitter account. After after seeing Carlos robot enjoy it so kind of thing is is starting to grow and I think guys starting to get a sense of how not only for for for players to connect with fans. But it's also a way for them to build their brands and you know build for a life outside of baseball as well. Yeah you could see it like in the regular workout regimen for some of these guys Blake Snell lifts weights on Wednesday. has a bullpen session. On Thursday Has an off day on on Friday Saturday Sunday. He plays video games with fans during the course of the game. I mean baseball. Baseball's almost uniquely positioned to to. You know there's so much downtime. For a lot less players they can just sit in dugout and talk and you can get a sense of what that dugout chatter light. I mean I think it's I think it's a really good idea. Honestly now that I think about it twice to to Michael Guys who aren't playing in the game having a starter on his off day just chat with fans might be really good wages to get a get a different players and I think create a kind of a more uniquely intimate baseball experience. Yeah one hundred percent you did that in the clubhouse that that that would be pretty cool. He brings people into that that atmosphere. That was the amazing. All Right Jim. Thanks for doing this. They have bus really appreciated luxury. Walters manage twenty years in the big leagues. Fifteen hundred fifty one career wins in bucket. Bring YOU IN A. I'm excited about this conversation. Because they've known you for a long time. But as I said the Aaron Boone when we had him on a couple of weeks ago I never had asked him about that home run he hit in two thousand three AOL CS. Because I worked with him. I didn't want to be like the green fly. You know the fan boy asking questions so this kind of gives me an opportunity. Ask You questions like that. Don't ask me about the anything. That's really painful. Please buster. It's part of. It's always a back story. Those things you know so many things. I wish I'd asked people on the way. Never feel like you're putting them out. Well I appreciate you taking the time and joining us. I storytelling one when we're out without baseball games A few years ago I think your last year when you were managing the Orioles I I remember how you invited Dion Sanders to come to cannon yards. And I didn't realize up until that time that you guys are very close and that you know. Then I've made sense. Dion was in the Yankees Organization when you were in the Yankees Organization. Tell me about him and how you guys always connected well beyond you know. He came from somewhere area of the country. There was a real connection theon personality of the football player and the way he projected himself as a baseball player. Two totally different guys. He wasn't primetime in baseball and Very Smart Guy He's still lives here in Dallas. We is son over at Soda. Messes we sit together sometime at basketball games but Beyond that group we had a group in Albany New York in the Eastern League that won that year and beyond was probably the most popular teammates. They're not because he's Tom COM. Just the way he treated everybody was he was just one of the guys. He understood that the difference between but I remember calling him to tell him he was going to the big leagues and he thought I was telling him to go. He's going to AAA and I called him at home one night. I said it's girlfriend. John say whatever answer the phone I said? Hey can I speak to be honest? Theon would eat beans pork chops and skull potatoes. Almost every night loved him and he finally he finally gets to the phone. That's what's up. He goes I'm just eating. I said listen They want to call you up. They want you to go up and it goes fuck you know I. I love the guys here man. We're GONNA win this year. I think and subway triple as kind of a lateral move. I assume say here and I said you don't understand you're going to New York. And he dropped the phone. I hear him going baby baby coming here. Pick up the phone talked about. It was one of the it was one of the great send ups. Oh I can't I couldn't hardly get him back on the phone but A lot of people didn't get dion and I enjoyed getting things about him. He was a fast guy. I ever had not even close. Think about your fast. It's got and there's another year there. He could actually outrun the baseball. It was breathtaking to watch him. Run triple out. It was. It was worth play being there and just the things that you can do. Tell you through. Well he had a lot of power. That people didn't know if you've been full-time baseball sky was the limit he was. He was a special talent. You Know Buck. I'm so thrilled to hear. You say that because when I have friends family or if I do stuff with fans and people ask me. What's the coolest thing that I ever saw a baseball field? I said watching Dion Sanders. Senate triple. That was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen but for people talk about stuff in the big leagues that I'm remember the most. It might have been coach and third base for an inside the park. Home Run Dion Sanders. Look it up sometime Bo Jackson him. We're going back and forth before we play Kansas City about. He couldn't tackle and beyond with say Akkad out running. And this guy was smartness. Got What smart about time they got to New York. It was on. I mean it was on. We weren't very good. We hadn't scored a run in a month and the first two times a Bo his whole months and the little down the Doug because you know it was beau versus beyond. I kind of walk bombs to come home and I got a Lotta game. Let's go well. He hits the ball in the right. Centerfield and Bo Dives Fort Separate. The shoulder vouch for the year by the way ball. Rolls to the fence comes around second and it is beautiful. I mean there's dirt Flying Jerry. Curls are working and he gets to third and I think those Bianca WanNa headed back to the Infield just thinking. It was a sure. Stand UP TRIPLE AND MCFARLAND was out in front of the plate and I start pumping and like I said. We haven't scorn awhile. It's two outs and beyond guessing another gear. He looks at me like this crazy. Guy's GonNa send me and I gotta say Dirt Meryl's Home Played on par and the ball comes in. He's out by maybe Tennessee. I'm running down the line with him. Obviously behind him and the ball short hops in hits off McFarland's chest. Dion has to go up in the air over the top McFarland. Get his hand back on the plate before he can retrieve the ball and tagging bang. Bang safe and I gotTa tell you the place went crazy crate. It was I. I got to go back to third base. I'm going back in the dug-out Denman's found migos brother. He said if you lost your mind what you doing I said de Vaux showing up out there. You gotta see it you know. Take it back man. That was fun. That was sound blaster. Yeah that I was. That's great I was GonNa ask you if you want to ask. You set a ask you about the decision to send him in that situation Yeah he he. He would have absolutely been amazing. I WanNa ask you about working for George Steinbrenner. What was of course People know that behind the scenes. He could be so tough. You know all those years going through managers. What was the most angry that he ever got it. You Oh Jeez Buster While you know I think he would. He would try to get it through coaches. He knew that my sauce fought would for coaches who are good coaches and doing their job. Release reason why I left. New York was over for four coaches and he wanted to fire but I if he would live through I was lucky to have jean-michel deflected a lot of those things but he got a little easier to work for With every manager I think you know I think Joe got a softer guy. I think the guy behind Joe got a software guy was I you know there were some some very private moments where he would just hammer away and there. It was just like you know anything that was obvious or he had told you about happening I remember he came in one morning early. One morning. Brian butterfill now. We're going to do in the schedules. It's been seven o'clock in the morning and he came in all he said. Was you out in call butter by name. And so of course you know clete boyer gets a big name placard and puts it over. Brian's Locker W. e. new name where you out but you know there was a certain there was a certain Fraternity and Camaraderie of guys. You know you Kinda took it. You know it was coming your way. He made sure he didn't crack somebody else. Enter IN OTHER WORDS. The pitching coach. You don't say the INFIELDER OUTTA position or they've made a bunch of errors behind your Fisher to try to support your yourself because now you have dragged the infield coach into so there was no. You're going up the elevator late at night. Form of meetings. Everybody knows. Somebody's got a bullseye on their back. And you just need to wear it take like a man 'cause no it'll be somebody else the next time and guys would get back on the elevator and pat each other on the pet. The guy on the back of that war at that time and it was part of the job description. I understood it when I took the job that he was going to be. Part of the job description. But you know you can only take so much. If if he knew that he could run all over. You're going to be there at some point. You hadn't expand all right. Tell us about Don Mattingly in the nineteen ninety five playoffs. I was not covering the team at that time. But Michael K of course longtime broadcast for the Yankees. Tell stories about about Donnie ramping. Up for that series knowing that that would be it started about three weeks earlier. You know we had probably one of the best September's and Gangqi history to get in the playoffs. We we had the replacement camp and all. This stuff is awful Donnie. I'd taken a lot of grief about continued to play Donnie hitting third. Because he was he said but to sixty with not much power numbers in it but I knew his back was killing and also knew that our our players just funneled and and set off him so much. You meant so much to our club. This being on the field. Donnie came in one day. So that's I say I'm going forward either. You not hit me thirty. I said listen. Don't tell me where my hitch in the batting order. I he said You I'm going for it. I said what do you mean? He said I'm going to start talking my back and this and that whatever and eat it blows out doesn't blow out. He said we're not getting the playoffs. And let's start acting like a first baseman of the Yankees. So he went for. I am their eleven o'clock in the morning with all the stuff he did with his back. Just try to get and I gotTa tell you buster for two or three weeks it was don mattingly all I was like. Oh my God every swing you might be his last and he put on a show in the playoffs but also remember coming back from Seattle. He came up set down. You know you're talking about three games on that turf out there to the buck. I'm done just once. You know I want you and stick the no before also even gets here that I'm done. My boys need me at home. He had some situation at home. Back won't let me do what I need to do. I don't I the surgery I can't. I'm not sure about it. And so him telling us that. Buster a lot has to go get..

"don mattingly" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Hit? I don't know I I look at it differently if I could rain hit four hundred that year if I can only run I was never a guy you know. It's always been going on a guy. Get the second base or guys see stuff with the glove or chipping or doing something? I was never a guy that liked it very much because it. I was never confident that that guy got it out there so I wasn't got it used it Like that but I look at it like if I can own ran that year Dan. Do you know how many career stolen bases you had? I probably could count them on on. No no no no. You can count on your body. You stole fourteen bases in fourteen years. Oh Wow hey I got to one game too though. I got twice at one game. You should've been pacing yourself. You had to be exhausted after that game I feel bad for that catcher. Who was the catcher? You stole two bags on definitely. Didn't feel pressure. Let me get that kind of or maybe it was a double steal your the back end of a double steal. It was not. It was not the same house jeeter since that. One Guy didn't vote for him for the hall of fame is He. is even moping around A. I haven't noticed him moping around. Yeah that's still amazing. Though I just WANNA know and look everybody can vote now however you WanNa vote. I just love to know rationale that one person who said this. Why didn't vote for Derrick Jeeter? What could that rational possibly be? I'm with you on that right. I mean career hits championships Played every day played a long time Yeah that's that's for me. How can you look at that? Vote and go you know. I just don't see this guy is there and the thing is when it gets to the hall of fame. I just believe you say that Guy Hall of Famer. Yes or no and with jeeter. Don't think anybody anybody who's conscious a conscious could say. Yeah he's a hall of Famer. Not Yeah I'm with you on the thing again. How can you look at just as numbers and everything he accomplished? And then say no to that and Bono. It's great to talk to you and keep your spirits up there and congrats on getting your contract. Extended their right the hayward. We're looking to keep an eye on us. We're going to be a lot more competitive So it's it's GonNa it's GonNa be a better year like I told our media The media that show up is that you know. We're going to be disappointed this year. We're not considerably better so I think we're going to be a lot tougher team to put away this year. If you make the playoffs then numbering in the show down there to the ballpark yeah for the whole last month. Before in the hunt you should be there the whole l. No we can't do that. I mean you gotTa make the playoffs. Dining come on we're negotiating. I'm driving along for the top right. And then you end up with fifteen days and we're good and what's the over under of objections for you? This year I gotTa Say. I got a new bench coach and James. I don't want to be under the gun. James Rouse GonNa. I'm GonNa stay calm this year. Dan Like I always say but I did tell James you got you. GotTa make sure you're up to speed out of a few. Will you get thrown out of a game before June first? I'm going to say no on that. I'm going to say yes I'M GONNA. Yeah I think in. May You'RE GONNA get steamed okay. We'll see feeling good. I'm feeling confident and a lot of Yoga Yoga Lin on her. I want to see you in yoga poses in the dugout though. Calming Your Mind here during a game seeing one. Meghan going on good to talk to you. Thank you done all right. Thanks Don Mattingly. Mr Yoga. I went to Yoga Stung by the way. Yeah to Yoga. I'm trying man I'm trying. It's it's the be croom the hot yoga. I'm trying. I feel better after I've done it. It's just I feel horrible when I'm doing apple CBO like like I believe those mud baths people take and then you feel so good afterwards while anytime you wash mud off your body you're gonNa feel a lot better as people like. Is there any placebo factor? I think yoga works but the the hot part being uncomfortable. Is it at all mental to me? It's all physical because I I have a hard time getting into any pose. I always have to say I can't get into that pose. What what can I do instead? Yes he yeah when? You're the doing the modified pose. Yeah Yeah it's like you're in your kitty table at Thanksgiving I. I'm at the kids. Table of Yoga. Yes you've done it though you've been in there. Yeah Yeah Yeah but it's an all working out as soon as you're done working out you feel better like there's just like a chemical reaction in your body in your brain that causes you to feel better a you go for a run and run two miles or something. It's GonNa Stink while you're doing it but then after you're like man. I'm glad I went for that run. I felt good not that I would know. That's the endorphins. They think kicking in negative. Feel and you could check the box mentally that you did some kind of exercise that day so you feel a little bit better by yourself but who what exercise do you feel. Good doing none. As that's the whole point if I do a spin class I feel good when I'm doing it. Oh yeah no I kill it in. There is when I when I get on my bike in spin on killing it in the bank. They all yelling at you but I never get a shoutout from the teacher. No you think they're trying to downplay you.

I listen You were talking about getting more responsibility. You know with job titles and stuff like that. When I was a rookie they said you WANNA go down for myself short and nobody's rarely guys and you get to leave afterwards. What I didn't know is that if you're down they're going to this guy you're also have to do the railway and that was around the time that the red wings winning seven drunk people trying to figure out what your car is that. Oh my goodness it. It was like them if I did. If I didn't and my question to you is this what happens to the preseason games will they still have the same amount will increase still. Have you know because right now? It seems like that loss from people. Like whatever you know what? I'm I thought. Well they're they're gonNA reduce preseason probably three games. I I don't know that official but That's what I was told. Thank you Jeff. By the way Jeff was a police officer in Detroit. That's what he was talking about. When you go to the Tiger Games and then you'd have to do the Red Wings are stats guy. Tim said no need to call out. Don Mattingly but he never had two stolen bases in a game. He said one of his steals came against Oakland and then he advanced to third on a wild pitch. Maybe that's where he was confused. Can't get anything by US. Even if you're trying to admit the two stolen bases in a game yes I like that are stats guy. Had to fact check them. Hold on a second. Let me see if he really did. I don't know if he fact checked me saying what Don Mattingly's batting average was in nineteen eighty six. But he fact checked Donnie onto. I think he was saying. There's no way mattingly two stolen bases in a game. Yeah point first of all I like to check of our stats guys a red SOx fan secondly the guy mattingly the legend. He has fourteen stolen bases in fourteen years. And I did the math. That's an average of one a year. Don't Besmirch and let them let them vivid bit. Yeah got some trigger. Meet Friday songs here. I'M GONNA start with John in Las Vegas. Let's meet.

manager for the miami marlins owns don mattingly how are you dining doing good dan mr guys misbehave i got i got down on your list sounds like well now we were waiting eating if something controversial happened if he got in trouble you gotta jack did and then i saw where you said you're in favor of the automated strikes on the roble double umpires that surprised me a little bit how did you come to that realization now i just i just think watching these games in technology has gotten so good with that and really game the game as you watch <hes> so many so many calls for me and i know there's a gray area they call and and things like like that i just think it would make it a cleaner game it keeps me from getting jack balls and strikes <hes> but i i really i really do think it's it's getting yeah point why do we allow umpires to have their own interpretation of the strike so i find that now i maybe we do that and all other sports where are of a football referee has his own interpretation of holding or basketball referee has his interpretation of traveling but when the strike strike zone varies that much i don't understand why we gave them so much power i don't i don't necessarily think that we've given so much power i think you know there's a definition of you know what the strike zone is <hes> you know some guys just see it differently and you know i think the new setup so i'm pretty sure sure they don't allow the guys that set up right behind the catcher anymore they want him in the slot which puts them in a bind guys are throwing harder and harder there's so much movement and it just it just getting tough to to keep that thing regulate i think the the auto zone or the rubble whatever you wanna call it ah regulate it will regulate the strike zone it will reward the guys know the strike zone as hitters and it will you know guys are they're still gonna chase but it it will reward those guys for knowing the strike zone and in actual reward the the guys that can do it on the mound to so it doesn't reward the guide right it's throwing the ball ninety eight but it's not hitting corners he's just missing but close and and he's getting calls and you put the hitter in a tough spot kershaw was on with with this recently said he's not interested in it he's not for it i would think that it would it would help him even more he said look i don't want their their jobs you know catchers who are really good at framing a pitch and i said that's not enough to not do the automated strike so i would think that would help someone kershaw what do you think i i tunnel expect for clayton obviously he's a great guy and then a great pitcher for a long time but i do disagree i think that we can regulate this thing i think the technology is good enough to be able to to get it where that curve ball that barely crosses and bounces on the ground they can they can they can regulate that enough were we're guys will know what a strike is one ball is and not from one day to the next when you get one guy that to get scouting reports every day on the ups and and we see the spots that they call more often in the spots they miss more <hes> the top of the strike zone is a place where guys are going now some guys call the top up some guys don't and it just gets it's hard for me as i watch you know umpire each zones a little bit different and not that they're trying to be different it's just that they are they may not see the right side of the plate <hes> maybe missing a you know you know one side of the plate more often get your side and there's a little bit of space out there so i think it just regulates it where strikes to strike a balza ball how much did you benefit from having a great i by that the umpire might have consciously or subconsciously lean towards helping you at the plate i think it's i think it helps guys i feel like i benefit some i wasn't a guy that that struck struck out a lot <hes> but i i didn't actually walk very much either but i felt like i knew the strike from a ball and i you know you learn how to talk with guys for me you know if a ball you know if the ball was close but it's an inch and a half off i'm going to say hey i know that's close but that's an inch and half off or that you know what i want want to let him know that i know the strike zone i want him to pay attention and so i think you you get respect in that order if you know how to talk to them it's <hes> and then also you're not swinging at everything that comes up there you know swinging balls over their head and then on the ground argue about an inch off you know it's an party fire like okay you're swinging at everything up here you don't know a baltimore strike so you can't really talk to me like that he's don mattingly manager the miami marlins continental tire coaches roach's corner home runs or way up this year because of what they keep going up dan every year it seems like and <hes> <hes> you know this year the ball seems to be fine but you hear that same thing almost every year the last few years all the ball's juiced this or that <hes> but that i will say we've been to some ballparks <hes> that in the past i've you know you watch b._e._p. and you watch games and balls or hit and and they're going places that you don't seem you didn't see him in the past and all the players getting bigger and stronger or guys throwing harder so if you catch it goes further <hes> i i i i don't know but in general you guys are gonna get bigger and stronger is this game keeps evolving <hes> but something is a little different this year can you have too much of a good thing though can you can we have too many home runs no not necessarily i don't think i think the biggest complaint with the home runs runs within baseball is that it's all or nothing right now you know it's homerun it's walk and strike out are you saying that are you teaching teaching your kids that no we don't mind home runs also what we also want guys that can put the ball in play you know it's tough when you get a guy on third and you can't get him in because you're you get two straight strikeouts and you know our pop up to the infield and you can't hardly get that guy in you can't really do anything it's hard to hit and run and it's hard to put the game emotion when you got guys that can't put the ball in play and so i think there's gotta be a balance off of guys that can put the ball in play <hes> aren't striking out quite as much <hes> so more action in the game and i think that's kind of the biggest complaint within the game now is there's not enough action and beer knew somebody what just football or basketball or other sports seems like there's action all the time yes yes and based off if you watch a baseball game it's like you know just the temple of it which is the beauty of the game you know it's kind of almost ingles game play perfectly but i think for the younger generation the game is slow game and you know they don't seem to like it as much yeah even even a sacrifice bunt or hitting the ball to the other side opposite side of the infield that that just doesn't happen i think we took movement for granted donnie johny back when we were growing up or even when you were playing that there were things that were going on now it's that guy throws ninety eight in that guy sitting dead red and may the best man win and maybe you'll get a base hit or something but that's about it i know it's tough you know it's funny even as manager we shift <hes> as much as anyone there are times when we're playing the guy we're he's gotta hit if he wants it if he if he could burn it abated basis and they don't and and for the most part guys don't <noise> that's amazing it is to me because you know you're three or four runs ends down your run means nothing other than we need baserunners and we're planning guy all the way over and they don't take the opportunity i mean i it's hard for me to even do it it's like man why does that guy not take it but they don't what's your favorite george steinbrenner story <hes> i the one i always think about is a conversation i had with him <hes> when him and i were i guess going back and forth you know over a situation relation and he was talking about trading me dallas green had taken over the club and eighty nine and he asked me says hey do you want to be i said yeah i wanna be here but that i want to be treated with respect and do you mind giving georgia call i said sure so i call him and they start getting into a little bit and back and forth fourth over the respect and you know you know tell him i say i come to camp in shape i play hard every day i'll play hurt for you the treat me with respect and and and he says he he goes you know he kind of talks and he says well good luck to you and he hangs up on me and yeah so it's at the at the eighty and so i'm kinda getting ready and going back to indiana and trying to packing up the house and i i told my wife the time i'm like might as well put this thing on the market we're going and from that point on he respect and we had a great relationship and from that point on and it was it was great it was almost like okay you stood up for yourself now you know now we can move forward wherever were you gonna get traded to i heard i you know you never know hurt some wheel clark stuff to san francisco and i don't know what was going on with him or whatever ever but that's what i've heard nice well we'll stay with that it sounds kind of that that's an interesting trade rumor there <hes> before i let you go want to ask you about that bench-clearing brawl with the pirates the reds as as a manager what what how do you preempt that what what is your role if you know that this is going to happen or somebody's hit and then there's retaliation somebody cadillacs a home run what is your role i think i you know as a manager really you have to try try to keep the game in order you don't want your guys getting thrown out of games <hes> you don't want guys getting suspended <hes> you have to be a leader in those situations she's i haven't always been that honestly i mean i've gotten fired up and you get you get involved in you get emotional but i think in general you gotta try to keep your club under control we don't i want you don't want guys getting hurt and and there's a lot of craziness in the game with all the kind of let the kids play thing has caused some issues you you know you see the the you know not just hitting a home or in kind of.
Alonso hits 1st career HR to help Mets beat Marlins 7-3
"In the Marlins Pete Alonzo was becoming a hero in New York. Well, he went really deep. Second rider to the bell is first pitch Alonso crushes one of the air deep to right center. This is career. Four to three Homer at a right center field a personal milestone at a huge one for the New York bits as they've got it front of the Marlins. Now is how he rose WCBS. Josh did you see replay that home? I mean that looked like hit like a two iron with we crush that. Very you BUSTER. Yes. A two iron. I was actually going to go with a three wood. But no probably a little bit more accurate. Who bet he he he when he hits the ball. He kills it. I think I I read that it was the longest home run by any anybody in that ballpark. Since John Carlos Stanton was with the team Mets win that game. Seven three. Don Mattingly Marlins manager was very unhappy about some calls in this game. I guess I'm not supposed to complain about calls or whatever. But the league look at it because it was shaky tonight. I understand the whole Marlins aren't supposed to be good this year. And I guess it's okay to pile on. But the they got a it's got to be better than that. Shakey tonight.
"don mattingly" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"One, three percent of every purchase are welcome back to the rich Eisen show. As we said at the top of the program, it is unbelievable. The thirty fifth anniversary of the famed pine tar game in Yankee Stadium, and to help us in a way walk down memory lane is a man who was the first baseman for the New York Yankees that day and that eventually the second baseman in the restart of the game. He's not other than current. Miami Marlins manager. Don Mattingly. How are you? Don Goodrich. Can you believe it's been thirty five years. Time to definitely marching on, that's for sure. It seems like it's yesterday really honestly that day in in Yankee Stadium. What was so what's your recollection walked me through your perspective when Brett came to bet that day. The, I guess my clearest memory is Billy had had noticed, you know, maybe Dave before two days before that, that George had pine tar way up the bat. And nowadays it's, it's, it's it's okay, but then then you couldn't do it and he was just waiting for the right time in soon as that you're hit, the Homer comes Billy looking at the bad. I think it was Tim McLellan behind the play, and he puts it across the plate. It was too high and he called him out and George doing the the, the swim move coming out of the dugout arms playing. And I think Billy just enjoyed that so much being able to pull that off. That's that's probably my best memory. So did you know that he, it's some like when Billy was coming out of the dugout after that, like, oh my gosh, she's going to actually try and get this thing overturned, did you think we've pretty much all new great need either billiard maybe even Greg nettles had had noticed it and talked about it. And then when he came out it was pretty much what was happening. So I mean, so what happened next from your? Did you you must have had a really good view of George Brett coming out of the dugout right down? Oh, yeah. It was from there. You know, kind of chaos and you remember a couple of things. Also somebody running up the runway, the tunnel with the bat. Gaylord, Perry hall of Famer Gaylord Perry took the bat. But I took the bat, we're running up, but people chasing for the bat and all kinds of things like that. It was just kind of chaos after that and you know they're the game's over, you know, and we find out later that we had a replay it. So what should before we get to that part Don Mattingly Marlins manager here on the thirty fifth anniversary of the famed pine. Tar game right here on the rich Eisen show. What was it like in the clubhouse afterwards? Just pretty, you know, just exciting. You end up winning the game, but you know, the talk of obviously was what has happened and how it happened. And I don't remember whole lot about exactly the way it went into the clubhouse, but it was just pretty much talking to club that day. I bet. I bet. And Billy, as you said was just like the cat ate Canaria Billy Martin. Exactly. And you know, Billy always was looking to get an ad somehow some way. One of those guys knew the rule book in and out, and it was, you know exactly what you say. It was like, you know, Billy was the candidate canary that and so. Okay. So then. When you found out you had to replay it, what was your recollection of that day when you're when you were told to get to second base Don. Kind of fun. Actually, you know you like you're back the kid days needed one out, and I think get reason center gathering center. I'm not sure the reasons for all this because I'm sure there were certain guy you couldn't use, you know, because of you had to go back, I guess, and figure out who's in lineup, who came out of the lineup that day, maybe even on your roster. I'm not sure if all the rules with that day, but I know that it was a little different, you know, playing second base for one out and and I remember gator center. Yeah, I think you are. The first left handed second baseman to have played at that position. In a long time. And then I think you're the only one sense Don to be very honest with you. Look at the idea of throw me over third..
