Braves and other Topic that we've discussed in previous episodes here the The boston braves back then. Nineteen fourteen interesting time because that's obviously when the federal league was challenging What existed of the american league and the national league lots of different challenges and stuff and and the beginning of the end i guess of this first dynasty was well underway however that is not the focus of the story our guests this week. Alan abel has written a fascinating book that fits and sits within this period of time of the philadelphia athletics. The book is called the short. Life of hugh mclean the true story of baseball magic and murder. And as we get into unwinding this topic and and alan will do a magnificent job of doing so when we get this underway. You will soon hear this Is not only the era But it's also a reflection of what's going on in baseball general. Not just the as but of baseball. Generally humic loon as you will find out. In a few moments was the mascot for the philadelphia as around this time the middle the middle part of Of the one thousand nine hundred tens you had to remember that mascots. Were quite the thing they were sort. Sort of a combination of I guess sort of a a voodoo doll and and sort of a lucky charm. I guess and these mascots during this era and philadelphia a prime among them were for lack of a better term. These were hunchback kids really are words or or whatever. The terminology was at the time but they were i. They were socially not acceptable. I guess what you call today but back in the day they were kind of looked upon as being sort of an essential component to to that of baseball team every every baseball team the yankees all they all had some aspect of what they would call a lucky charms mascot in the form of a person generally somebody who had a disability. Frankly what we know today. Is that as that hunchback's for some strange reason We're kind of in vogue a for those kinds of massachusetts and mclean was was one of those characters. Get into some this story. This is a kid an older teenager that you grew up like a lot of americans at time love baseball and Frankly felt his deformity would naturally fit the qualifications. If you can believe it for being a mascot yeah this was a regular thing back then and it includes Story which gets even more bizarre and interesting as we get on. Because he goes on to be a numbers runner and runs around with the mob and he becomes a a well known and loved figure in philadelphia..

They were a bit like supposed to cut in. Quickstep are in the classics days. Yeah no true I recall that That sort of early part of the final when Eddie was away. And you're going into sort of the last forty thirty kilometers And pretty sure of Palestine still had a couple of guys in that group genial They're all female a super strong and doing a lot of the attacking to bridge and I think I'd I tied my sort of move fairly well.

"Look back on my even is what twelve years ago now looking back on it as one of the best on a bike. It's something Matt Damon's Booker. But in the episode mentioned the high tough those You know th the supposedly fly in its very ruling but quite hard quite drippy and before you even get to the Kabul's northern France anyone who's got the you're a star to Paris from London. You know it's very open the the line there but the the in enrolling deceptively hard the roads and you probably get really sensitive on the Eurostar the wealth the scape rolling. But you. You know what I'm saying. Is you see this ruling landscape and you don't really realize until you're on the roads high tough. Some of the hills are the point of making Daniel speaking of classic bike setups for Pirate Bay. Somebody who didn't have one of those Steve Byword. You spoke to him recently. Not About 'em the very strange bike that he wrote in Pirate Bay Lionel. The one of the closest ever finish is in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty. Well yes indeed. It's great that we we have a new tab to fact check the nine thousand nine hundred. Titian wasn't the closest between Eddie Plank and Steve Bauer. The three years later was slightly closer. Was it five millimeters. I think yeah I mean well so again. This is one of the great things about cycling isn't it? You can have the closest ever edition of Pirate Bay. Which is actually the closest but yeah I spoke to Steve. Our about the second closest power by and well He. These days is a sports director with the team. Ccc and he's currently in Canada at home waiting for the season to resume like the rest of us But we had a very enjoyable half hour catching up on Power Bay. Nine thousand nine hundred. Well let's start at the beginning stave for some of our listeners. Who maybe don't know the story. How would you explain or describe the nine Hundred Ninety Pie Rubai? Well it depends. Where do you WanNa do the starter to finish but Yeah I mean it's the closest Second place I guess for me in this history appear Ruby Quite a close between Ballerini and Do Glow La Salle. But I think the one between playing cutter and I was was was a little bit closer. You know I think it came down to like how peseta meter or something like that. Unfortunately.

"Okay well that was a little flavor of the nineteen ninety-four Pirate Bay m a classic edition and won by Andrea Djamil. Which is another reason why we were talking about it. Yesterday wasn't done but it was rich because just a couple of days ago. Andre Schmil Sadly announced to Only so I think it was on his facebook page. That he's been suffering from cancer He's fifty seven years old now and no eating prognosis Talked about it as a as his next big battle next big race that he's going to try to win and we hope he does win. It smell was An intriguing character Particularly in the context of that ninety four pyro Bay. I'm an and people talk about the battle with Musee but as we heard in in that clip and there's a lot more to that racing a lot more that made it special and memorable than just musee versus Schmila. I mean I'm we heard that the country from the late David Duffield. When duclos-lasalle Sheila Duclos LaSalle had one previous to pay rubies punk should and Franco Ballerini punctured and those to the previous year in nineteen ninety-three? Had this incredibly close finish. I mean fact. We talked earlier about how. Close the Steve Bow And Eddie Plank was in nineteen ninety and I think it was written at the time that separates it then was thirteen millimeters and I think Duclos LaSalle ballerini eight millimeters supposedly reportedly anyway Tomato Musee Duclos LaSalle and Ballerini. They were some of the main protagonists in Nineteen ninety-four but trail really out clause to everyone road away and it was wet and it was It was sort of epic enough sense. The was a long portion of the race where there were no motorbike cameras. The any shots were from the helicopter because the most like Pilots had various problems that gone off the road in the in the mud and and so on it was a bit like when you watch it back. It's a bit like sort of following the dots if you if you follow the dots now on the transcontinental race or one of these. Ultra Endurance Cycling although you same thing I watched that yes in on you do. There are some showers sun where the landscape allows it where it's a bit like the the shot that we get a machines. Elisi am alongside the writers. There are bits where we can see Ballerini in particular he went. He had time pre hard just before the puncture and we see this beautiful show of him and site on writing across the couples. We do but as I said. Schmil was I think. They're quite clearly strongest on the day and it was it sort of victory for the underdog because he'd moved to Lotto the Belgian team Lotto Bat season The previous year on each mill had been at GB MG with Musee but had felt that he wasn't really given enough consideration. That was a Belgian team and Patrick. Lefevere was in charge. Your Museo was sort of. He's he's protege and Trail wasn't picked for milan-san Ramo and then at the end of the year trail whose various changes of nationality will probably come onto but He was writing for Moldova in the world championships in Oslo but it was widely expected until he lefavor expected. He was gonNA help Museo in the World Championships. Museo of course he was running for Belgium. Schmil didn't do that. And this compounded or lead to bad falling out and Schmil then moving to Lotto and Lotto were smaller outfit than G. B. M. G. Musee would win the tour Florida's in ninety three. He was already a big big figuring Belgium and in in the classics. And yeah the favourite. Really coming into the ninety-four Pirate Bay. He has interesting mentioned. The change of Sh- meals nationality Daniel. He obviously was a relatively light starter. when it comes to professional cycling because of course until nineteen thousand nine. He wasn't really allowed to be a professional way. Wasn't allowed to be a professional and it wasn't until one thousand nine when the Alpha loon team was was able to race professionally. It was kind of an Italian slash Russian outfit. Wasn't it and by that stage. Schmil was already twenty six and so by ninety four. He was thirty one years old and Not not the most experienced in terms of winning races at the very top level. I mean that was really the the first of a handful of really big wins that he The managed to get in his career. Yeah and you mentioned that. I'm starting PROCREATE LATE. I mean he. He was born way over on the east side of Russia. Almost I mean not very far as the crow flies from from Japan. I think he's mum was an opera singer. Anyway. The founding moved to Ukraine when he was younger and then obviously what is now Ukraine then the Soviet Union And then as the. Soviet Union from started to fall apart in late eighties. There was this idea to and I think they called it. Project Codename Project Sea serpent the Russian or the Soviet Federation. I'd come up with this plan to sort of place. Their ride is in Europe and this led to the creation of Alpha loom team. In in San Marino. I think Alfa Lum made aluminium or work with aluminium and they came to fruition and these Russians came over and they couldn't communicate with the Italians and there was even a story I think in the first year nineteen before one thousand nine hundred. Schmil himself and one other ride got in trouble because they came back to the team hotel Through the window with sort of eight o'clock in the morning When the rest of the team were at breakfast and they've been out all night sort of sampling the delights of wherever they were they were. I'm somewhere on the Adriatic Coast Rimini or so and you know. They got a bit of a bad reputation. Some of those guys being playboys for wanting to to sort of taken embrace everything though the West had to offer schmil certainly In in a very short space of time got his act together and became known. It's really sort of discipline. Hard ride And you know the the rivalry musee was really built up. I think in the Belgian Press Schmila. We said the move was made of it than than what was actually going on on the road and on a personal level between him and Museo but he did always used to say that he had he kept up a poster of Museo on on the wall in his garage and he would use it to motivate himself and This it was a life size poster and when he was to- trainer particularly when it was outside and he would sort of imagine being classics and he would imagine writing against Musee. When you later move past this was when he was living in Belgium and he moved house and went to Italy late God where longtime he took the poster with him and put it up and he's guarantee Again but when I think of Schmil I also think of Jeff Brockovich. Did you guys ever did either of you have come and Gone With Jeff Brooklyn though Napalm. Well yeah as a long term sports director a lotto suit all and passed away about this time last year. Correct And he he was one of these rare diet sports who had never been a ride himself. He'd been a cycling fanatic growing up in the sixties in Belgium. And he used to brag become a sporty for the age of fifteen with some sort of local club that he'd become involved with and he moved through I'm also teams and made his life made his job. He was a real one of these institutions of of Belgian cycling. Big Guy Big Whitehead Guy. Easter Pudgy. Kind of But very tall E- kind of reminded me of the state of marshmallow month from ghostbusters and then he had very memorable not in a particularly good way. Unchain handshake was kind of like trying to grasp An uncooked quail. Or Partridge was you. Didn't you didn't really was very fleshy but it was enough remove. Didn't really know how to how to get your hands around it. Yeah Quayle's after social distancing we're GONNA have handshakes with Daniel. They're on their own some very memorable hunting so always remember and I think I tweeted about this when he died. But Raymond Poulidor an extraordinary comes very stubby huge fingers and short fingers but yeah. I really feel very strong firm handshake. But that wasn't Jeff Brockville told Jeff. Brockovich was not a particularly pleasant handshake but as a as a young as a young journalist around two thousand one two thousand and two. I used to speak to you know. Racism struck me. But what I what I didn't realize at that point was what is sort of sage. He was in Belgian cycling and he was a lot of for many years and then he was off so highly by Ram truck male. Who WAS INVOLVED Katusha later and also Robbie McEwen who's involved Cotija took. They brought him on board there but they as I say he was the Yoda Guru figuring Belgian cycling. And I remember I'm there's another another real authority on Belgian. Cycling is all colleague Hugo Cool vits this unmistakable. East coach small Hugo anyways so bottle top round glasses but quite dark skinned Mexican but he. He is paying attention mistake intention. Great character fantastic character. Anyway I was going to. I think it was a race or some kind of job interview a few years ago in Belgium and discuss arrangements with Hugo and he'd very kindly offered to let me stay his house when I arrived and I was getting in. I think probably on the Eurostar quite late one evening and he was. GonNa pick me up from from the train station. I think probably volume or something like that and anywhere going. Hugo's car and he's a Freebie attention. I must call Jeff and I said what would you mean what you mean? And he gave me no context. No there was no preamble leading. Just start dialing this number anyway. Oh then I heard for the next fifteen minutes as as you do when you listen to. Belgium's talk about cycling. We just a series of grunts Jeff Buddha and this went on and on but I just kept hearing you know couple of words I could make out. I could make the names of riders and then he kept saying Murska mosquito and the voice on the other end anyway the call ended and I said you go what was that and he goes is Jeff as a what do you mean Jeff Jeff Brockovich. I call him every night. And this was about twenty ten at night and you could tell. Jeff Rockefeller was in a horizontal position. He was lying down and then and I said what you find him every night when he's in bed of course and I must say I said what what four and he says everything. Jeff you pay attention. You need to Jaffe knows everything that's happening in cycling and about this Michika what was I just wife and this is what so you. You have twenty minute conversation about the current affairs in professional cycling at twenty ten in the evening. Meanwhile he was his wife was was lying next to of course freebies and I'll never forget this but then I started to probe and interrogate. Hugh goes to try and understand. Just you know how how this had happened. The Jeff breakout become this sort of totemic figure in Belgian cycling. Explain the you're such such was the regarding which Geoff Brock was held by the Diet sportifs and and ride is the day before the tour Flanders. Every year there was almost queue outside Jeff. Brockville's House of Director sportifs. There would visit Jeff home and he would sort of liquids finger and stick it in the air and say Right Tomorrow Cancer Laura Tax with fifteen kilometers ago. Tomorrow Heyman is in the move with devulder and they would all sort of nod solemnly and go off and come up with their tactics for the tour flaunt is based on what Jeff Brockovich. I'm not sure how we moves from the one thousand nine hundred four pirate bay. Who's very entertaining? Well Well Brakha. That was I mean he Trail was like a son for him. I mean I should also add. That Schmil was probably the most intimidating guy to interview. I've ever had the experience of interviewing I interviewed him when he was the CA- Tujia manager and two thousand nine. They they ripening their service corps somewhere near Lake Garda and I was doing a big feature with pots auto people of course and we. We had lunch. This Italian and your Makharov was there and anyway I had lunch with her and then I got so twenty minutes of trail afterwards and for twenty minutes. He did not look me in the eye. Once I'd like to know Daniel is who if anybody has replaced Brockovich I mean who am I. Who's in that rule now in the thousands? Who does go curves call every night? I'd love tonight. I'm sure he misses him. Mrs Those because I should also add that. I did establish what this Musica was. We'll miss go was Jeff Jeff Brockville's wife but Mika.

This sort of false downhill. He's probably going and thirty five miles an hour maybe faster. I mean in the fact that he's actually trying to get away Solo Asserts the fact that how good he was feeling that day because he was arguably one of the fastest guys in that group with the exception of maybe xylitol so he's been a big risk in here by trying to get away with lovers. Go with all drug as I know. Oh Yeah Yeah. He pushed all his chips. Ford van pitching about gets almost back to him. Watch this but this is one of these weird places where event pitting him has. No teammates. T. Mobile has to potatoes alone like who's going to really do that. Were like the it's the move is is the one that Tom made. Here's Fan Pittsburgh. I'm he just can't that's it. The race is over. Clear Down Ben hitting their best friends by the way they turned together. All the time knows more than anybody. Senior wonder how the training rides were the next week.

So that's that's I mean that's an incredible victory for young like that and Especially the way he the way he Is that a timeframe exciting there Oh yeah they rowed time bikes back then. I was telling the guys yesterday I actually had A. There's a group trying to put people trying to put together a group to buy up time. Reached out to me I don't know if that's a great idea. No this is the first of Tom's one. Two thousand five two thousand six and then again in two thousand twelve. Yeah again one of the greats of the generation did not just tour flanders but pair. Rebbe which we'll talk about next week. We should've talked about that. We we are going to try to put this sort of in in the midst of the corona madness. Covert nineteen madness. We are GonNa try to cobble together. These shows creates content. You know people are stuck at home. He love bikers ten. You love the spring classic. Let us know what you think.

H. is GonNa put these things together at am up and we'll just we'll just talk about him look look at the energy at the finish here again a beautiful day. Yeah I mean. That's he. Just wrote into fenway fucking kid grew up on the south is the Southie and he just hit a grand slam it. That's exactly what we're or they say. You'll never have to buy beer in Belgium when she went to. That's true but hopefully not clear by himself petito leading out the sprint they got the second inherit. Beckett the week four as well so clearly clear in Bonin were the strongest guys that that week so so van pit them gets third three strongest rides on the podium again. And this is what we said so you have. Bonin clear and that's what you WANNA see at a rate and then you know we talked about at the top like this is a race is a hard man's race like you want you want that podium. That's a beautiful opponent. That represents absolutely so all right when awaits sprint of the we should. That's right man I was. I was about ready to wrap up here. Let's see it's riders six riders. So we're sprinting. We're trying to win this little group sprint. For Seventh letch leading out this group you have even on the rights still just riding for himself out in the wind was just begun the middle. Who's the big guy the metal everybody's favorite the one? Everybody loves big. Gee that George was at seven. Was your best your best right there now. I got I got third in Flanders Fourth. One of the extra. How do I know these things but I was happy? That's not an amazing result again on the Super. Six two weeks before that happened to be able to be amongst at the end and then how did Rebecca go the following weekend? I got you know I was watching this trend. You know you're sick. It felt good. They are Becca Flanders. Bom Makes Sense and I know we've already had some feedback just based on earlier. Show the move that people wanna WanNa see that coverage of Georgia's big crash and finder. So I think that will probably be one that will have to spend some time on. George you can look away we will all yeah or the top crashes in the yeah all right anything else again. Thanks to our sponsor power dot and the feed go to power dot com twenty percent off by code is the move and also the feed go to the feed dot com slash. The move your immunity. Pack Georgia's Hammer in his right now because he feels like he's getting sick and I'm coming with the heat of a thousand suns. We'll see we'll we'll do. We'll do we'll do a few questions real quick 'cause people wanting to interact you know Like here's one. It's one for each of you Georgia Lance from Dave in the UK. Said I really appreciate the podcast there helping to keep the spirits up in these uncertain times for George who was the toughest classics writer. He ever raced against Arosa. Ch the obvious Boonen County. Lara Airbus my early years. In is the amount of confidence that they had a very similar to the old man on the US out of screening. There where they can have excelled in the the more top of the conditions happier. They were those. Those guys are guys that stand out the most in Fort Lance had you not evolved into a grand tour winner and rider. Do you think you could have one tour flanders or RU Bay again? That's from Dave and I mean those are all fun to think. It's a great question and stuff I think about pro probably not candidly. Not Rule Bay had just was That's a whole `nother level. That's that's That's just a different thing. Not Not to mention the luck factor. That goes in there even if if I could have Put together a training plan and RECON enough to get to a place. Then you got to so much luck George can speak to that better than me but I could've seen myself. Flanders is so. I mean if if we'd have to go back and look at somebody's drama file. The total elevation at Flanders is quite a lot. I mean there's there's a ton of climbing In if I spent the time is as we talked about with regards. Zabul just knowing sort of every little sneaky sidewalk here and there Maybe maybe but And that was always also honestly. That was the planner early days when I turned won the World Championships in ninety three And even in ninety three had early in the season had some success in some of the spring stuff of the first big spring kick off his was at the time called. Het Volk was in the front group at that point. Everybody was like okay. This is the next classics writer. But it you know but stuff happened got sick. Came back and Changed my career to transition to a big tour rider. But I tell you looking back last thing I'll say is if it's a cool thought man I love. I love watching this footage. I Lo- I would done anything to come around that corner that last. Look at look at the Tom. Coming across the line this immunity if I had to pick one and I say this all the time I'll repeat it if I had to pick if you gave me one spring classic we only have one. It's the to refiners. I mean it's it's the most beautiful and one for Johann the let's see this comes from Jeff. Clawson he says my question is for Johann Walter. Plank PLANKAERT ONE FL Flanders Nine Hundred. Seventy six Eddie. Plank won that prize also in nineteen eighty eight. Can you tell me about the plank? Art Dynasty in Belgium. What other Belgian families had a cycling DYNASTY DYNASTIES PLUNK CARDS? I think it's difficult to find. Because they have another broader skull we The older one I think he was he was in the in the Eddie Murphy experience or even maybe a little bit before second in the world championships and then afterwards they're you know they're the son of which is you know. They have needs to say Uncle Eddy and Walter you'll plunk was also one of the tasks so I think you know as as typical as those and those guys were typical for the climate classics. They couldn't do anything else but they were damn good at it Other than that. I don't know if there's any other You know you have father son. Eddie Eddie marks and Axel Merckx and ozzy multiple rule and some other guys but As the Blackhawks. I don't think there's anything anything even close to that. They were really very tough. Warriors and Walter Plunkett by the way as of today is still sport director of professional cycling team. Oh he is I remember. He was a director back way back while he was he was a sport director with the on a sonic when he stopped his career which Dan afterwards evolved into not November. I think or but But he's already I would say probably the last year's Sport director at the London. The amendment Team for young professionals Well on that note. We'll wrap this up and START PREPPING FOR FOR ROBEA. We'd love your The move it. We do dot team your feedback on this type of show would be great..

"Then boom slight tear you know just wasn't the same guy but the success has allowed you to kind of forget that this isn't Tanaka who was supposed to be blown she's this is Tanaka who is you know he can get it up there if you need to but we're talking about a guy who's pitching out of the same tunnel berry effectively with the fastball split Combo slider so I think just watching Tanaka flip the lineup three times has been has been fun it's been impressive because it's been some we contact Tanakh has made Scene Tanaka twice in the same series by or other teams the Houston Astros because they're not like to see is I mean didn't he pitch against Houston I got one of the six innings to earn runs and then the second time he saw Houston seven innings six zero earned runs so he actually got better the second time against Houston dipper ballclub two different ballclub Fisher route to lead the same ballclub so we'll see what happens the Yankee bats because they took care of business and then the same thing with Tanaka Tanaka goes out there and shoves I feel like that's just a thing that could very much happen tonight I felt no doubt no doubt his Sorry go ahead Dawson when I was just going to say I I I like this is this is the Yankees bobble right now of oxygen for them to for them to stay alive if they can if they can win this game then they're in a lot better spot than they will ever be Tanaka one fifty one batting average allowed is the lowest by us artor in postseason history for all of those with at least forty innings pitched it's Tanaka Garrett Cole George Earnshaw who pitched in the late Twenties and early thirties sure tsar and then some name Art Neth and his appe is opium against as the second best ever Eddie Plank Hall of Famer from the early nineteen hundreds yup big plank everyone ruins the plank of course of course yeah everyone The crowd was during his starts they walk the plank walk the plank and he is is that was hit for himself to they were like you don't want this car yeah give him four walk the plank that actually be unbelievable if there's like a stud baseball player in his last name was plank the walk the plank t shirts would I mean why shelves you will be able to print up fast enough I put my kids through college on walk the plank t shirts what could you imagine if it was Berry Lamar plank wow walk year oh my walk the blink walk the plank I feel like if I were lower might trout and I was sick all the fish jokes that change my last name to pull plank to see you could sell your teacher it's Michael Plank I played with the Mike Plant by the way thirteen fourteen fifteen years old did you did let's see now he's how a very successful basketball coach okay so he gave up on his dreams of being a baseball player well the dream kind of gives up on you jared at times it's it's really not giving up on a dream sometimes the game just choosy out choose Yep spit you out maybe before you're ready preach who do we got in game four tonight what what are official picks my official pick is my official pictures the New York Yankees have no fear of Zag ranking say and and and Zach the the the story line is going to be how Justin Verlander Garrett Cole and the Houston Astros were still able to get to the world series and get through this divisions or get through this championship series without the help of Zachary Yeah J. Seventy-five Yankees seven to five Yankees Jerry Hayes Hammer the over hammer the over to be honest with Ya I also have the Yankees scoring seven runs I just don't know where those those other five or coming from with to knock on the mound and the Yankee bullpen going seven to Yankees wow hey listen what you have to like we should be playing four games keeps in four days is that correct correct so you be a travel day to day not giving them the Travel Day yes there would be a travel this Oh so only three games I guess I haven't looked no no no no no no there is a game Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday they're games right now so that's what I thought so Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday I just I just assumed because of the rain you have to condense it you because you've got the world series schedule you have to consider you can't just start moving shit back the the Yankees are going to be faced with happing to utilize this bullpen jared for potentially the next four days that is a task that is way easier talked about actually fulfilled yeah so you're Aaron Boone you have to win three war baseball games right yep you got to win three more baseball games and you've got the opportunity to do that here at home those are all going to come in a row so the guys that maybe haven't pitched back to back days in a while they're going to be forced to do that and the guys that have gone back to back days three days in a row now going to be the Cup of tea and is going to be the test same thing for the Houston Astros but for the Yankees their strength being the bullpen that's why it's the test is because outside of outside of what Tanaka like are you expecting to get seven strong from Severino or Paxton Saint Paxton oh tonight is your night if you're the New York Yankees for Masahiro Tanaka to keep the bullpen in good shape as he possibly can knowing the next two games are as pivotal as possible and you sort of open up the gate and let the horses run for the next two days if to knock it can give you the out you need from him tonight otherwise Aaron Boone put your manager hat on because this is going to be time before we move on the MLB investigated the Houston Astros for the sign stealing thing then the league found the astros did not violate any policies for the whole whistling thing I mean sign stealing get the fuck over if you're if you're not lose it you're not using electronics to steal signs the just be smarter about yeah and and the whole the whole verbal command thing all hit on this this is something that happens high school college right and maybe even at times I guess I don't know through the minor leagues I wasn't in the Dugout to here her the conversations that these guys are having with each other or what sort of communication that they're into but in high school we had your pitches if knew what was coming and I'm on deck you know your last name or your number is off speed anything else is a fastball what just shit like that save the college right if you're on second base the transferring of signals hand position which way your heads look in between did you or right before the pie that's all a street legal so it's about where is your verbal command where people drawing the line with the verbal command that's whistling is becoming the issue is people are like what it's basically like just yelling Adam and I and I've often said this I've had this conversation for what years what would you do if Jose altuve stood at second base and held up to figgers and let Carlos Correa take his axe what would you do what would you do what could you do what would be the course of action seriously are the Yankees going to start drilling someone because now you're putting baserunners on now we've got but but that's that's serious question at that point time would there have to be attention paid to Stein stealing would we did have to outlaw sign stealing therefore making the art of signed stealing all the more important in the game of baseball because as the cultural baseball has shown you tell us that we can't do I would guess what we're going to find a way to do it even fucking better and that's just the reality I think of not only baseball a lot of scenarios right that's a scenario that going to be faced within a few short years jeered don't date hippies got cigarettes rolled up in his shirt he's got a leather jacket he

"eddie plank" Discussed on The Bobby Bones Show

"Bob uh-huh aiming. I had to have one of our talk this morning before the show. There's some days either she comes in and I'm like yeah yeah. It's about to be that time of the month. I come in this morning and I'm like yeah. I'm pooped mostly. I did a speech last night at Missouri State University and they were they were so great and so they opened up their theater and I guess I went on at eight. PM or so and so I've spoken to and I was supposed I was just about forty five minutes but I spent the last month or so working on this speech that I'm just going to deliver it for the next four or five or six months or so and I thought it's about forty five minutes long. It's about an hour and fifteen minutes l. That's a little off it was it was a little long yeah but I would rather work long than work short so it was a little long. I totally didn't get home. 'til about midnight or so last night so after. I worked on the show last night one thirty woke up a few hours. Later and came in aiming are very honest well most mornings about how we feel and not so much because we feel a certain way but because the other one has to deal with it like if you're in a weird spot. I gotTA handle that right. If I'M GONNA weird spy you gotta gotTa handle that so I walked in. I was like heads up amy either today or tomorrow. I'm going to be good. It's going to be tomorrow okay. We days pretty pretty good. Normally it hits you like the second day so Just WanNA shout out everywhere Missouri State. I went and the whole speech. It's called fail until you don't don't stop being a Weiner Star being a winner. I prefer I mean is it. Is it always to college campus. No it could be wherever I go speak. Get a big Biz like humongous businesses. It's a maral motivational because I feel like a lot of people come from the same situation that I came from. Where if you're you're new to the show if I can give you just a quick summary of how I grew up I was raised in a small town of seven hundred people in Mountain Pine Arkansas Food Stamp. Kid You know we we struggled a lot. My Real Dad left when I was five or six years old. My mom was an addict and she was an actor whole life she ended up dying in her forties and so a lot of my life was me having to figure it out by myself and in a big part of my speech. It's that for a long time in my life. I was very resentful of that. I was very resentful of people that got to have three meals a day very resentful of people that had family members they could rely on or school close because if I didn't really go out and hustle myself I didn't have that stuff. I didn't have food. I didn't have new close to get to wear to school but a big point of it is I look now and go. That was really one of the best things to happen to me because one I learned so much and got so strong from it that I don't think there's anything I can't take on but secondly like I actually understand people now like I know the struggle and so I feel like I it can also help people that are going through the struggle and what I would always see as for me such a setback in life and I started from such disadvantage like I I was able able to work from that and and really become who I am now and that's a big part of it and a lot of times. We just look and go well. I had it rough or my situation isn't the Best Austin so I guess I'm just not supposed to succeed. It's just too hard and it's easy to get that way but it's if you don't look at it like that if you actually see the blessing thing which I do which I think why eventually all go into public service and run for office because I just think nobody speaks for the people that aren't coming coming from a fortunate situation and so it's it's that and it's showing up on time every time and talking about people's like I just wish I knew what it took to get ahead. Yala takes takes to get ahead. It's coming to work with a good attitude and do more than ask for you. That's it. If you do that absolutely like that's eighty percent that's eighty percent of everything and so it's a very practical speech a little motivation but a little long last night and I lied to you about an hour about about an hour into it. I was like I should just run through it at all. I mean you just did you have more dramatic pauses. I would just go here. This reminds me of something and just slowly move away. I hope people left last night from that. I hope they were inspired and then I stayed at a QNA. Hey with the president of the university and my whole point is is to make people feel like they're not alone. I know I also talk about how I wrote my first book and by the way I'm not a writer and you know I don't know if you're new to the show and you hear me like this guy writes books on TV like again. I'm just a kid that grew up in a town of seven hundred people and so I wrote my first book after I'd been told no to a kids book eight times and that's the only reason I bought came about because tell me Your Life Story and I did and there were like you know what we don't want the kids book but why don't you write a book about your life and I'm like well. That's not gonNA sell. Nobody cares and then it did and it's about how AH getting rejected over and over and over again it starts to be a muscle like lifting weights you start doing it over and over and over again it's not so hard anymore and it takes all of those knows you gotTa. Wade through a lot of nose to finally get a shot so did that last night. It just talked about how you know even our our call time. I'll give an example here on this show. Are we have recall time every morning. We have to show up at the simpsons earlier and my general feeling is if you get here right. It's time you just here to do average work. This is the Oh you're just here to put it in. What's expected of you if you here before your time. I'll tell you shows up every day before she's supposed to mortgage number two every day before she's supposed to. She's up here and she's like and also she. We talked earlier when she came on the show. How long you been on the show two and a half years he's like. You don't have to prove to that room because she wasn't one of us. Who've all known each other for. I mean how long we've living together. Oh thirteen years. She's like I have to prove to them that I deserve to be in that room so she's here every day before she's supposed to be just grinding in a way and so you know anyway that was to be thank you very much our thank you single clap. but attitude is a major major part of it like the biggest. I tell these kids on American idol when they come in like how do I get ahead. I'm like well if nobody likes you. Nobody's going to help you so you. You can be the most talented but if nobody likes you. Nobody's GONNA stick their neck out for you. It doesn't matter like you have to be likable. That's a big part of what it is and so big so anyway if I'm out speaking somewhere philly com that was free last night. I don't know if it's always free I mean this is back you. They just play this back at our those teleprompter things so they pretty cool yeah. It's it's I'd never used them before and I put notes in there to remind me of of the points that I need to hit and yeah you know they're other presidential wants clear but if you're not standing at the exact right angle you can't really see them. 'cause there's nothing written in the prompter. It's a reflection from the ground. Oh that's how those work. That's just a like a mirror kind of thing so you gotta hit that exactly the right angle to see it so I put notes oats in as to like. I'm at this point is tell this story and I tell the story then I go back into my next note so it's pretty good but I bust them out last night. It's very cool so there's a picture the last night in full speaking uniform at Mr Bobby bones on my instagram Galore topcoat kind on was it or like no not really sports coat but it kind of a little jacket Tuxedo the little slide show. Oh yeah as a couple they were super gracious to me. the school president was the vice president met with all them beforehand it was great so shadow shot everybody at Missouri State who invited me to come out and speak last night and you know we opened up the theater for Tuesday night. There are probably thirteen fourteen hundred people showed up great is great. I couldn't believe leave it. I'm always amazed people. Were there and like all right. Let's see if anybody cares and I and I do this thing. We're open the curtain and just look through them. I and I'm like please let there be somebody there and even if there's not I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Give them one people or one million people. They're GONNA get the same show show. They're GONNA get yeah. They're whatever I'm doing. That's a show to me. They're GONNA get that. Let's say if it's music or comedy or or this last night. They'll get same experience but I'm always like oh just hope they didn't waste time bringing me out here and I take an open. The current is a little bit put my through and I saw people and I was like Oh thank God. There's never a show even like stand up comedy that I do are Eddie. Plank shows where I'm taking for granted that people were there like every show Eddie. Can you believe people come into this is our show. Now is really good too and I never i. I don't say that often now I agree. It's comet because it's we were written in their stand up in it. which by the way in Richmond Friday night that show is that theater sold out Wilmington Lowington Delaware just a few tickets left?

"And and mac had some really really talented players and certainly eddie plank who was the winningest south on till we're in spun came along and broke planks win record of he planted three hundred and twenty six wins southpaw pitcher but the one difference between what the philadelphia didn't have and i'm not an expert on it and david probably more than i do is that the philadelphia fans seeing not to churn out well first of all the market was much smaller than new york but the philadelphia when they started winning your after year nineteen eleven they didn't make it in nineteen twelve when the red sox and smokey joe woods incredible season thirteen you wash the philadelphia attendance started to drop in nineteen fourteen they were still a great team it's almost like the fans you know became bored because they knew the as we're going to win the pennant and connie mack made the decision that that he was going to sell off his stars now there was another story going on there was an upstart league and if you haven't had a feature on it yet it's really worthwhile to talk about the federal league the federal league was a third major league that challenged the the the to establish links ironically just basically following the american league's nineteen o one nineteen two playbook but of course now the american league was established they were part of the club and him went to war and so players were jumping and players were thinking about money and mack just decided it was time to you know to let you know let them go and and forward i think he thought that he could rebuild easier than he did because it took them a long long time he thought again that he could recruit and find great players on the san laws but more teams were now getting scouts and mac had a tremendous comeback in the late twenties but he didn't do it from finding is on san mateo he he got it from paying a lot of money for people like lefty grove and mickey cochran to minor league teams paying them a lot of money to get these star players so we had we had dan levin on our show episode sixty three is a matter of fact if you're if you're listening at home on the federal league and i just it it see if it's interesting because it does feel to me that you know there are other reasons right for for why you know the as sort of you know sort of ran their course and then you know went through the the wilds for awhile sort of you know in more abundance if that's a word you know until the twenties when when they did come back and there was sort of redemption there but it's clear that that you know even though the federal league only lasted two seasons and fourteen and fifteen right there there was a you know a body blow if you will to.

"The tonality and the format of of how this book is laid out because you do rely very heavily on newspaper accounts we we decided or basically getting involved with the book and decided there are so many books that have written about the world series i probably have my library about twenty of them so the last thing i really team that baseball a baseball library needs is another book just you know telling what happened in this series of that series but there were two things wanting to showcase the sports writers of the time and not necessarily trying to get every player even every key play but letting the reader go back and and and get a sense of what it was like and basically just taking the newspaper columns from the day and the only thing as editors that we've added is for each game in series will have a comment at the beginning christy mathewson muscle you know the the giants played the athletics and christy mathewson was the winning pitcher and some eddie plank or whoever might be was the losing pitcher scher and let it go at that and let the let the sports writers of the time tell the story at the same time the book marries that unique commentary with some very very rare photos and many of them have not been seen for a century many they may have last been published when they were published the first time oh during a world series drawing on collections again some maybe publicly accessible many of them are in the hands of private collectors and so it's really letting the sports writers and the photographers tell tell the story at one time in didn't make it at the end but are working title that i had for the book was from the lenses or from the ends and lenses of those who were there because the books really being told by the newspaper writers and the photographers who were there and just to give our audience a bit of a sense here and i actually use this maybe as a as a as a pivot to into a couple of teams because obviously the the the f latics and the giants of that era were very common li found in these various world series and we'll get them the second but i'm just gonna read this and not to bore the audience but it's hardly boring because i think it's tremendous writing so in your nineteen eleven chapter co written or with norman mocked the philadelphia athletics in new york giants he here's a great quote from new york sun now it's unattributed course like you said before but the great scene setting new york is throbbing with baseball expectancy all day yesterday baseball notables and baseball commodores poured into the city and what with home and out of town fans new york last night harbored more national game enthusiasts than ever before congregated for baseball event interest in the world series between the giants and the flex which begins today at the polo grounds lively for a week grew feverish yesterday the unwanted animation around the hotels where baseball folk make their head coach here's attracted the interest of those not ordinarily keen for baseball there be some such benighted persons and the subject of the big diamond battles put everything else in the background now dow's afra scene setting right i mean that's like that's that's like a watercolor painting not not a you know a description of of of of events right and that is that was a world series between two grade teams new which are not around anymore relocated but the new york giants and the philadelphia poetics and it also happens the nineteen eleven is probably if you had to pick one pitcher and one hitter from the dead ball era who was really sort of would emerge as a star you've you pick somebody that was fortunate enough to be on a team that was there repeatedly in christy mathewson was would be the pitcher and frank home run baker would be to hit her own baker got his reputation although he didn't actually technically get his nickname but for a couple very dramatic home runs that were hit you know in in that world series and hugh fullerton is another writer that i should remember that i should mention who is out of chicago who actually played a role in covering the black sox scandal but he was very big in covering and.
