He's i think he's under contract still but anyway Behavioral way to go out if they win this thing now he's coaching or managing the houston astros against the atlanta braves in the world series full incomplete circle and what better way to go out especially better way no better way and you know hard on me so this is interesting.

Download the latest episode and follow it Schwab dot com slash Washington wise or wherever you listen. Well, Jake, dusty baker's future with the team is currently up in the air. He does not have a contract for next season. What's the latest on that front? And where do things stand in that conversation? You know, it's an interesting dynamic because as I mentioned earlier, they hired dusty baker before they hire their general manager, which is strange. I usually you hire the general manager and they pick the manager. So there was kind of this arranged marriage between general manager, James click and manager dusty baker originally dusty baker had a one year contract with a club option for 2021. When it was uncertain if there was going to even be a season in 2020 or if a season was going to be successfully played, which didn't look good at times, they picked up his option for 2021. And so that created this decision point after this season. You know at this point, given they are a win away from the World Series, you got to think he's coming back, right? Getting to the World Series should be enough if the Astros do that for dusty baker to come back. You could say that getting 95 wins in a dividend title should be enough. But until they address it, there's always going to be that uncertainty that we just don't know until you would expect the days after the season ends. So this might not be dusty baker's last shot at a World Series title. It sounds like we could be talking about 73 year old dusty baker making another run next season. It might be his last best shot, but the way baseball works in the playoffs. You never know. You know, look at the Atlanta Braves right now. You know, I don't think anyone picked them as a potential legitimate World Series contender a few weeks ago. If you're in the dance, you have a chance and the Astros should be competitive again next year. So if they do bring back dusty baker, he might have another chance next year. Just baseball is unlike every other sport in the playoffs. There's a lot of randomness, unpredictability, a lot of things that are difficult to predict, you know, injuries, just weird balances, so you never know, but given the Astros roster and the fact that Carlos Correa is a free agent after this season. This might be the best roster the Astros have for a while. I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world. I was brought here for this. And, you know, we got a chance to, you know, do something. Great.

'P' is for Passion

"I are bringing tia today. The letter p from our hope series which is passion. So how do we find our passion. How do we do that. I kind of want to go back to one of our guests that we've had on our show and pre kumar who was from india and she brought up something really really cool and she said if you wanna have passion. Take money out of the equation and seriously. Is that not the truth there. What zinc about keith. About what you guys would do or what you could accomplish if money just was not it right like you took money out shane. What would you do. What what kind of things would you take. Part in i would travel. Yeah exactly and so. Would i write because that. I'm totally passionate about traveling. And so i just want you guys to to think about that. What kind of things would you do if if money was not a factor in it wasn't in the equation so Gary voinea check. The often is called gary v. 'cause a lot of people can't pronounce last night but he's an american belarussian entrepreneur and he said skills are cheap. Passion is priceless and that was really cool because yeah we can learn a skill and it's pretty easy to to get right but how hard is it to get passion and keep that passion and and let it continue to drive you and i think that's that's really it. What i wanted to talk about was the word passion. And i looked into it a little bit and from its if you look at it from greek and latin meaning. It's to suffer and i thought that's interesting to suffer means passion. But think about it when you had when you're developing your passion. Whatever it is you have in order to build that passion. It's gonna come with a cost. It's going to come with some suffering. You know you might. It might take you forever to find your passion. But i just thought that was so fascinating that the were the word in greek and latin means to suffer and i think we have to go through some suffering to get to our passion Let me give you an example. So we love to travel. We talk about that a lot. But i didn't growing up i didn't we didn't travel a whole lot I had to learn that. That was my passion. Sometimes i can't live out. My passion can't travel every weekend. Because i don't have enough money but so i have to suffer through some of that in order to see my passion through. I just thought that was so fascinating fascinating to to see it from that side or that perspective the other side is the passion that we typically think about which is an intense enthusiasm towards something or a compelling desire to do something that that's my passion of traveling is just that i love to do it I don't think i was born with it. I don't think anybody is born with any passion. You have to find it within you know. When i was growing up a little child i loved to play soccer. I had baseball cards at collected. Had garbage pail kids. And i when i was thinking about this. I remember sitting at the table with grammy and talking about dodger baseball. She would be reading the newspaper and she'd be. Hey you know about this player this player and she taught me to be passionate about dodger baseball and still lives within me today. i can't see as many dodger games as i want to live Especially right now. But i love taking my family to dodger stadium and it brings me back to my childhood when we sat in the stadium watching ron say and steve garvey dusty baker and all of those phenomenal players that she allowed me to see the passion in dodger baseball. That i have today Now you know it could be. A people could have a passion for animals or art or hobbies like dancing or singing or writing or yoga. anything. But i don't believe that we are born with that. I think we have to develop it. And we have to go through that suffering like they're talked about to develop that passion. Howard thurman was an american author philosopher and educator in civil rights leader and. He said this. Don't worry about what the world needs ask. What makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. And i think that cannot be more true than it is right now. They we see so many people that are not coming alive. They're just going through life. Just almost robotically and i think if we have something that we're passionate about anything hopefully you can hear it in our voice when we talk about travel and that passion that really is a passion of ours and if we if we don't focus too much on what the world needs and what we think the world needs and that we come alive. We're going to be much more passionate simply about living life. I love that you brought up grammy. 'cause she she is an awesome individual and Sad that i can't spend as much time with her anymore. Obviously because she's passed on but She i think you brought up that in my life. One of the things that grammy was super passive passionate about was swimming and she. I'll never forget. She was the one that taught me how to swim. Grammy was a fish and so she was super passionate about the water. I mean grammy was passionate about a lot of things right. And i think that's where some of our passion comes from is from the some of the things that she taught us and i think that's why shane and i really love to swim so much. 'cause grammy would. We would always swim whether that was in the ocean or in her pool that she had in her backyard. But we would all i. I swear every time. I saw drama we were. She was always swimsuit and we were swimming. Yep that's what. I remembered so i i. I think that's true is it's like find something that you really love and i think a lot of times. It's like going back to your childhood. What is that thing that you did as a child that you don't do now that you're passionate about and then what's stopping you from continuing those things. Shane and i love dodger baseball. We got that from grammy. We also love swimming. We got that from grammy when we were kids and so i think a lot of times. It's about you know what what was it when you were a child. And why aren't you doing that thing. Now what what is stopping you from having that passion. I think passion is like a fire. That's with inside you rate the just. Nobody can extinguish and that. You don't want to extinguish it. Can night that fire and let it burn within you. i also want to bring up something That i was thinking about too as i was thinking about passion I think it kind of goes back to Another episode that we recorded with benita condie. And she said this in an. I think it has to do with passionate as well as that when we put our blinders on is that thing. We're passionate about just right here. And we can't see it. We can't we just have to take these blinders off to to be able to see that thing where we're passionate about typically. It's right in front of you. So if you don't have a passion or can't find warner of wondering how do i get more passion. It might just be right in front of you. You just have to open that fear up a little bit maybe to find that passion that theme that you're super super passionate about yup. I think often too often. We get comfortable in our comfort zone and we think well. We don't need passion in order to live and i would strongly disagree. I think we that's why we're talking about passion that's why it's part of our hope series because we strongly believe that in order to live life and come alive. You have to have something you're passionate about. It doesn't have to be many things it can but if you're passionate about one thing then it's going to help you So have you ever thought about your passion being something a tool to motivate and inspire others. Think about that.

"New dollar bill. Right then he was so good. He was so good and just the soundtrack of our lives, You know, we'll think about it in context to Ray. That's AH Hall of Famer of Future Hall of Famer calling of Future Hall of Famer exactly exactly that. Cool? Yes, cool and Hank was. You know, this is back in the chief knock a homer days, you know in Atlanta. And you know the year before, if I think he was probably 39 year before I remember vividly that the Braves had three players with 40 or more home weapons, including The soon to be home run King on my mind. Still the home run King. Hank Aaron. And what and you know, here's another thing. Who are the other two? Was it Dale Murphy? And was it Dusty Baker? Dusty Baker is on the team. Dale Murphy came along later. Okay. And trying to think of the other two. Who had Oh, I can tell, you know, Forgive me. Dusty did not hit 40 was Darrell Evans. Okay, and also, um Maybe Johnson, future manager and the manager of the Braves that year was Hank Aaron, former teammates Eddie Mathews. I think Eddie Mathews might be in the hall, also a great home running himself. And just and Phil Niekro was on that team who just passed away. Bless his heart. But you know, I'll leave you with this when I was only 11 years old then, but I remember the death threats on Hank Aaron. And I did not understand it. Scary, Jeff. I thought why America's like, Why is that? I understand why it's happening. And now 58 years old, I still ask the same question. Why Why did that happen? And I think we're better today. And my hope and prayer is that is that if that word today that that would not be the case because he was a class act And just God bless. Thank Karen. All those great old baseball players care, Jeff. God bless you, brother. God bless you, right. You're right, And that's another sign. Another obvious sign of how far we've come in this country. As it as it pretends to two relationships between people of different colors. Hank Aaron received death threats because he was going to break the home run record. Of the White Babe Ruth. That's why the death threats were coming in. You're playing in Atlanta in 1974. That stuff happened a lot. 2021 The last the last 45 years. All of the No pun intended trumped up racism charges in this country. Absolutely ludicrous without any basis. What so ever You gotta have some perspective. You've got to understand history.

Not even barreled it up completely on the sweet spot, jogging around the bases, and we're up two more runs. I can't believe it traveled that far. Isn't the room supposed to be closed tonight? It is. And Anderson is out of the game raise will go toe loop The left hander to face Muncie Mookie Betts in the middle of a lot of things here in the bottom of the sixth inning of the Dodgers, now lead 2 to 1.

"Every time you hit a ball hard, it seems like one of their guys is making a play, and that's why they're sticking it to them. That's why they're up. Three. Nothing. They're putting the right guys in situations and you look at it and we talk. Murph and I were discussing this a little bit yesterday that you can see where far Hans logic come from with having versatile players. I've got a different first, but a different first baseman yesterday than they did for the first two games of this Siri's, which used to be like if you had a first baseman, How was your guy red? He was playing every day. He was just gonna be out there. They started Ji Man Choi for the first couple, And then they had Jandi ideas out there yesterday. Then a guy starts yesterday. Who? I don't think it started a game all postseason to this point, so Kevin caches managing up a storm. He's getting out from his pictures. He's getting great defense from his outfielders and from his infielders William Thomas yesterday another great Play for him, considering he has not been hitting at all, really at the plate. Let's hear from Dusty Baker because on the other side of things the Astros are while their bats have been quiet. You got to do the other things, right? You can't give away extra outs. Jose Altuve, eh? It's official. He's got the yips now. Zero throwing errors in the 1st 60 games of the regular season. He's got three in the last two games now in the LCS, Dusty Baker on his second baseman, Jose Altuve. You also hit a home run yesterday, his struggles throwing the ball. Why does it happen? A second baseman? It's not a third baseman against the Yes, it's always like a second baseman. Dude, you're Chuck Knoblauch. You just shot up my guy, Jason Barrera. Yes, it is. Said his first and last name. Dude, who is my senior. His junior year. I think you'd make it all legal. He was like, second team all league in the H A. L. Admiral Catholic to Hayward area athletically, which is now I don't think exist any longer. Hey, You two get a case of the yips. This guy could not throw the ball from like the second base position. First student. They had to start like D h again. I think for a little bit, Dude, we're like not played him in the field, but he was our best lead off hitter. So we were hit him up with the top of the order would have J Still my best friend, So it's all good poking fun at him. But we still get out of about that. How do you forget to throw the ball from second base the first base and get this Jose Altuve yesterday. This was on a double play. This is he was trying to go to second base and he made a bad throw. Here's dusty baker. You know, we're giving him all support that we can and nobody feels. You know, Worst then, Jose Because he takes he takes him very serious and takes it to heart. I mean, you know, he's one of our, uh, you know. We've all been through this before. You know, not in this spotlight like this. It hurts us all to see him hurt. Uh and I will give all support that he you know, they need Teo. I mean, there's only so much you could dio forgot between the years their dusty like he's you got to keep him in the lineup because he has. He's he's Jose Altuve. It's got to be out there. Kevin Cash the other side of the coin here, Temper B rays manager who, by the way they're saying, now, I guess he's the third youngest man. Adjourned baseball now when he took over at age 37 or whatever. Six years ago, he was the youngest manager in baseball. So six years in still the third youngest. Here's Here's Kevin Cash talking about the mind set the Rays have, by the way, it's Tyler Glass now today in a put away game It was reasonably excited for how we played..

"Quote at geico dot com I do appreciate the dusty Baker accepted the challenge of walking into this Hornet's nest and he is a very strong personality he's more old school he's a field guide he's also a guy that is in one of these new cookie cutter managers who it really this is an extension of the general manager in the dugout no dusty Baker has his own brain he has a very strong personality he's not going to get pushed around and he's the guy that accepted this challenge I I feel like he's the right one to be their leader moving forward that's the first time that they've gotten together as a first time that I met a number of them even though I had met him on the other side the feel I you doing without the first time that we were in the same room at the same time personally so you know was a good meeting to get together with the guys and anybody that's ever gone to the World Series realize how short your winners and and how private most of the guys remain during that short period of time that your season is a much shorter than everybody else at least so it there was good for everybody to get together people ask why you know you wait so long this isn't because this the first time everybody's got together since the season that does the bigger also asked for fans to forgive the Astros out of we have that audio if we could find it he he asked that Fiennes forgive them and allow baseball to move forward he ask for mercy essentially and I thought that was kind of him because he's someone who was on the other side of it I know he wasn't managing he wasn't managing the nationals and he wasn't managing another team actually I take that back we're talking about two thousand seventeen what I took yes in fact he was affected by it my fault I was thinking last season he he is could have taken a different tack he could have been more hard nosed about it because everybody in baseball was affected and there are a lot of people in baseball who have much stronger language now it is his job obviously he's he's being paid to try to lead them out of this wilderness and it's not gonna be easy so I admire him for even putting himself in that situation David in Houston welcome to after hours CBS sports radio dusty Baker is the right job for that job because the straight up these hard line and he struck double not trustworthy trust the ball but now I told reporters the Astros completed mount Rushmore of baseball you get the the white Sox scandal rose ceremonies and now the Astros stories that you just not ever be able to get away that's true I don't think this ever goes away it won't be quite as won't be quite as white hot the fire but it's not ever going to be forgotten as an ever go away now similar to the patriots in Spygate it's never going away if they found out that out to ray did have won some electronic equipment that should be the straw that broke the camel's back and there's just so many just retract the whole twenty seventeen and vacate the search well yeah it seems like baseball decided they're not going to do that they're still talk about whether or not there should be some other action taken but as you point out it's not like anybody's gonna look at that two thousand seventy World Series the same ever again that's all I got what the hell is your knowledge very very very time straight out of the loop dogs apology by or Tiger Woods he was the one I thought it would one eighty thanks David he was listening it later here you got about two minutes go ahead Major League Baseball might be in on it as well because the thing like you know is Marlowe a real sense of urgency to permission a team that is admitted to cheating so I don't know if it's just the the brain gut World Series to the city of Houston because of the incident you know what the storm and everything but others girl is a free work everywhere world for your phone just leave me alone everything is I would one person say forgive him and leave him alone for warmth to see what Major League Baseball is not really you know promising them opener anything in place well they're going to get any kind of suspension was yep for the managers no way of the players are and and this is the deal I mean we see this in a in the legal system all the time whether we like it or not sometimes you have to give to get and in the case of the commissioner and that the investigation they were confident they would not get the truth if these players weren't protected and given some unity for their testimonies that's how they got to the bottom of it that's how they now understand everything that happened but yeah the Astros definitely suffered a gym crane I know I know he's a billionaire but it's a half million dollar fine the most that baseball allows they lost draft picks they obviously have to deal with all of this now but they they lost of what I believe to be a world class manager AJ hedge and they had to make a change in the front office to how I mean I don't know about corporate partners and and that type of hit to the revenue but I I II just pointing out that there was no way the commissioner was going to get the story the full story if he didn't offer immunity yeah well I appreciate your show but I'll tell you what it what would make it better they should play the Yankees level Winter Games as a playable today and that'll be it some I'm not going to happen now thank you I appreciate the phone call build you too I with you I I wish the players had to lose something had to suffer had to face some type of of penalty but let's be honest none of them was going to actually talk and speak up if they weren't protected because they knew they were all in on it and you know sometimes when I watch all my crime dramas are you read about these these these types of things in the legal system how did that guy get off out of but sometimes you have to promise of unity and promised protection if you're going to get the full story now I I feel like AJ head to the total scapegoats except the fact that baseball said Hey we're going to come down hardest on the GM the managers because they didn't step in that in protected so those guys knew what was happening to and did nothing to stop it in and and they're paying the price the.

checkout burly corns get over here I'm very happy for dusty Baker then he's getting another opportunity eight seventy two years out of the game and I talked about this with Chris well he is he is the perfect and yet the him perfect fit for the Houston Astros on one hand who better to to settle things down and and calm the waters of a of a rocky in chaotic last month of scandal and controversy and it kind of changed the face of the cheaters to that of a of a classy guy like dusty Baker he the the guys the definition of of cool on this spot light no question will be searing hot on anything and everything Houston Astros do when he brings in instant credibility to that clubhouse a twenty two years he's wanted every stop for different franchises if he if he makes the playoffs with the Astros Indian and they're certainly a favorite to do that to become the first manager in history the game to take five different teams of the post season and yet he's he's an odd fit from the standpoint that that organization as we know is an analytics driven out of the analytic driven infrastructure of that entire organization that is already in place and dusty is is old school as it gets so there you doc about I stark contrast between the two and he's an interim manager for all practical purposes he gets a one year deal for twenty twenty and then the team has an option for twenty twenty one and a buyout written in his contract so he's kind of a more or less is is a stopgap he's just what we're we're in total chaos in free fall here settle things down run things kinda hold down the fort it all by the way you're expected to win expected to win this division and before the scandal but the Astros were the odds on favorite to win the World Series I'm not sure how those numbers have changed since the scandal it all by the way the new general manager is going to be hired who will be inheriting you who he didn't hire so it it it it's it's hard it's perfect but it's imperfect it's odd but it makes sense or in the he's hired two weeks before the start of spring training and he's got to figure out what it I think they're inviting fifty nine guys to camp has had to be in that situation the reports indicate I think can Rosenthal cities probably gonna add Chris Speier who who was his right hand man here that team is dealing with a lot of hits it obviously lost draft picks but their system isn't what it used to be George Springer future is in question in center field but I get IT industry to be here I I I posted yesterday the Astros hiring of him and it is fascinating to watch how polarizing dusty is in something is is basic as Facebook comments in the the push and pull of reaction about dusty I'm I I would make the argument I can make a pretty strong argument dusty Baker deserves to be in the hall of fame whether he wins World Series or not what he's done as a manager he will become but I think he's fifteenth all time I think he's got the eighteen hundred winds fifteen most in baseball managed to a World Series in two thousand and two he's been the manager of the year three times about this the last time he what he he one manager the twenty years ago think about that was two thousand the last anyone manager of the year he's managed four different teams as a player has a World Series ring played nineteen years went to two all star games won a gold glove get over two hundred forty homers has over nineteen hundred hits I just I I'm rooting for him it in it that's the other odd thing I I don't want to root for the Astros but I want to root for dusty Baker and if the rates are going to win the World Series that I like see dusty Baker with the World Series he took over red steam that that hadn't won in a long time and and and then went to the playoffs three times it is time they're going back to back seasons one ninety one games ninety seven games ninety games yes there there were quirks about dusty that they drove me crazy the the they were writing the hot hand but does he was clearly he's a player's manager he's loyal to his players I think there's also this would this notion that the raids got bad because they fired dusty it has nothing to do one has nothing to do with the other the Reds got bad because they tore things apart and rebuilt that doesn't do a dusting leaving a they had started to backslide under dusty they finished third in his final year in in were a wild card and work out in the one game wild card they didn't get bad and then lose for six consecutive years of five straight years after now six because that's the left they they lost because they tore down in traded to everybody and their brother and more slow would painfully slow in doing it but as I was it is I was thinking about this today I also thought about a piece that Mike to course he wrote for the sporting news over the weekend about Bob Huggins and so much of dusty's perception is shaped around the fact that he hasn't won a World Series that he he you know managerial decisions in that giants angel series costume and and what he did there didn't do with the cubs in pictures he ruined it and so much of that is based on the fact he doesn't have a ring and yet Bob Huggins over the weekend a similar they don't have a ring Bob Huggins tied it off were up over the weekend with eight hundred and seventy six coaching wins in his career tied for seventh in the history of division one college basketball right three more wins by hugs he's gonna tie dean Smith the only coaches in the history of the game that have more wins than Bob Huggins or Roy Williams Jim Calhoun Bob knight Jim bay hime and Mike suggest ski and is Mike the course he wrote for the Sporting News my goodness any mention the perception of Hogan's has changed since his return to West Virginia and how he's reinvented his teens but how things would be in hell hugs would be viewed differently with the championship so much of looking at Bob Huggins well he's he's tied aid offer up in these what tied for seventh all time but everybody had been has a ring hugs doesn't have a win a ring and Mike pointed out held at all could have changed in that two thousand sees is Mike rode a championship can melt a lot of bikes and Bob is never been one to to make a sustained effort to change anybody's perception it's just it's not the way he is and Mike laid out in the piece tell that that two thousand season with canyon and door Marin Kenny Satterfield and Steve Logan Leonard Stokes and Pete Michael and Jermaine Tate and Ryan Fletcher in winning a championship he said with that group was not a lock but they would have been the clear favorite in in West Virginia he went to the final four do Sean Butler got hurt in the final four again against Duke and Mike's final line in that piece was that championship season remains what separates Huggins from rob and Smith and Williams in Calhoun at night and bay Hyman she Chesky it's about all there is now was Mike's point eight just how I I thought of those two this week one big big numbers in the history of their sports and yet part of that opening paragraph when people talk about him is yeah but they haven't won a championship I just I I think that's unfair if you look at what both have done over the years Mike also gets into his departure from from Clifton and and Nancy's emperor and and more of that is it's sportingnews dot com if you want to take a take a read I I I live because everything at the time I think of hugs and I think of the the Runyon's records your run ins we had all I never forget hugs got men and Mike talked about the perception and how he's never try to change anyone's perception of an one of the classic run ins with hugs back in the day when we were in mount Adams but you know how people use take shots at his players in the junior college players I didn't have to grease well I put together a package of the players that Huggins head at point for Huggins and the degrees they got and win a national writer account as we take a shot at you see at that time I would put that print out that packet put of the envelope and mail it to that columnist under the guise of hate you don't know what you're talking about here is the players who have graduated these other degrees well it's often happen with hugs and I the the kind of the telephone game by the time it got to him he heard it differently than it actually was well he was all bent out of shape and thought I was doing damage to the program we had it out when he came to the station it was the powers that be and hugs and me and they were sitting at the table and how to say you're you're you're killing this program and I don't I don't know what you're doing it and I looked and I said Bob what what do you think I'm doing to do keep taking shots at our graduation rate in a bottle of wine and I slid the package it was into a folder and I slid the packet across the table and I said Bob just do me a favor look at that and he opened it up it was the packet it was a list of all the different columnist around the country college basketball writers and columnists I'd sent the packet to and at that point is probably seventeen different guys he starts coming through it and he looks up at me starts thumbing through it he looks up at it and it was like that I like see you get the out come to meet you what I don't don't don't listen to what anybody is telling you because that by the time he gets to you it's rarely correct hugs said I'll never forget hugs sent Kate when my son was first diagnosed with leukemia and was a children's back in what two thousand early two thousands he he had the team signed a basketball it and send it to the hospital for Casey all never I'll never forget forget his kindness and that and I was thinking about this the other day his year off when not before we went to Kansas state and that odd one season at Kansas state I did a Q. and a with hugs he was it unplugged version at I believe it was putters with seventy one north at kings mill exit off to the right I think was putters and it was hogs in me he unplugged in front of it eight are that the house
