"So that you guys were able to lantis one of my favorite baseball personalities players and managers of all time. Bobby freaking valent coli. Now look yes. I want to sit here and kiss your ass from it. I thought for sure. I would be able to hear nervousness and tension. This is not your run of the mill. Hack single-a douche coach. I mean this. Is bobby freaking valentine incredible high school player credible pro click credible manager legendary manager. And the way that you guys handle. The interview was incredible. Lot of great question. He didn't seem to be bothered. I was always wondering like at what point i heard there was a time frame that was definitively said at the front writing a sales guys whenever that happens like you set the timer and soon as that hits. You're like okay. Should we finish or do we get some more time. And then you wait for the customer to gauge what. You're supposed to be doing at that point. But he seemed to thoroughly enjoy the interviews the whole but what. I thought evaluating the interview portion from youtube. He seemed to genuinely like and respect the questions. You guys were acting so much so that at one point i think you would ask them a question. And he What i call the guest compliment says you know what that's a really good question or maybe it was. You know what i haven't been asked. It was one of those things. Where i i know right off the bat that. Here's all the time. This is something that has impressed him because you dug deep. Us something that somebody you know doesn't usually ask and that's like a an impromptu or an involuntary way of the guests to say. Hey you're doing a really good job right now without saying that without knowing that they're saying that. I thought you guys did a masterful job with bobby valentine. Thank you very much. And that was that was one of those We have someone that helps us Get phone numbers and email addresses. And he he likes to remain under the radar. So i never bring his name up but He's he's a big help to the show as well. I think sometimes what happens with these guys. Is they come on. Not expecting us to you. Know we're fans and i'm not afraid to tell someone how wonderful i think they are. Because i'm being honest with them but at the same time they're just people and and also that thing with bobby. Valentine was a lot of people have heard the stories over and over the same stories. But there's so much more to him and you do a little research. And i think the question you're referring to is when i asked him because he was injured a lot. I mean this was a guy who was an incredible athlete. If he didn't have these injuries he could have possibly been a hall of fame player. And i but he's also known as being an incredible manager so i asked him if he wasn't If you didn't have these injuries would he have then. D- does he think he would have gone into managing and i think that was the question that made him give pause and he said you know that's a really good question but we also asked him about he. He was a A ballroom dancer. He was world champion ballroom dancer. Wow and who knows that right. I mean that's not something. That you think of. Bobby valentine so we liked to to get to to ask the guest questions things that they're not going to just talk about all the time and it doesn't have to be something that's controversial it just something. That is unusual. Or you know that people want to know about so. I really appreciate what you're saying That was a lot of fun to interview him guy. The cooking sam is coming in with this question. I don't know if you can see it. Scrolling down lenny. Dykstra is fun. Is there any way. We're going to get nails on the show land anyway. We're going to get nails on baseball and bbq jeff. And i have a bucket list. Okay and and i'll tell you one time you were on that list but you are. Now we got to you. And so Lenny dykstra is definitely on that list. we're going to reach out to him. He's done with the howard stern show. Apparently i i haven't heard on their recently. Does that so give you a pause to know how his appearances were on the howard stern show or do you think that that's just a personality that he is putting on and if he was on baseball and bbq you would get a more reserved and professional nails. You know what i think. It gives jeff Pause maybe a little bit. But but i'm like you know. Hey if he's going to be like that. Whatever i mean. That's if that's who he is that's who he is. You know why. Because you're a bob chat land. That's right. you're ohio city. Bob chad god damn it exactly exactly But we had on We had on barry lyons Former catcher for the mets and he he was He's a very he's a very religious man And wall we had him on. He did a lot of proselytizing and but it was. But it wasn't it was. I think it added to the interview because it showed his personality. It was who he was. It wasn't like he was trying to convert us but at the same time you saw that. His faith was so important to him. So i think the way somebody is Whether you know lenny dykstra is going to be the way. He is on the stern show. I mean look. He hits on robin quivers all the time right I don't think he's gonna hit on either of us. So i think but i'm willing to take the chance. And if he is that way. That's fine if he's not it's fine to but i would definitely definitely sam the cooking guy. If you could get us lenny dykstra. I will get more people to subscribe to your channel. Who's number one on the bucket list right now that we need to cross off. I really wanna get willie randolph. Wow not that. I think that he'll not winfield. Gray field goose. Gossage ron guidry. Dave righetti awards breadth. George brett yes george brett on the bucket i could help you. Get george brent. I know meet mitch. They're like neighbors in In kansas city. Then i would. I would appreciate that would probably make saying about the thank you. That's that'd be great. The thing about willie randolph. That i just a matter of fact we interviewed him. We interviewed a guy. Eric sherman last night. Who's an author and He he knows. Willie ran off. And i said to him. I'd like to get willie randolph. On i just want to tell willie randolph. What a raw deal. I feel he got from the new york mets. I think he got a raw deal and the fact that he never got to manage again. I think sucks. So can i say. Sucks on your show greg. Yes you can swear to in front of it. If you want to really good hammer your point across. I know i'm a listener. I know but No but but i know that i just wanna get willie randolph. I mean obviously. We'd want him from more than five minutes but i want to be able to tell him that. So he's on the bucket list but yeah george. Brett is definitely on the bucket list.

"Of score. Or what time is it gave it. What christie was good. He was actually really good. The whole playoffs We felt that we certainly within pitching. We have a chance to win. What about the removal of hurston. Game seven rich D think he could have gone more that night. The you know to tell it was so much to ask him to do what he did. He was so heroic theory he was and you know again. We had plenty of people wasn't just roger. it wasn't just bruce was just oil cameras. Every single person in that team had some kind of impact in some way on the way things were decided what could have been decided so Everybody did their little part. We just came up short. And it's it's hard to- swallow but frankly the better team won just because if you look at it it's only way won the better team. We had more chances to win than they did and they found a way to win. It's incredible when you look at sports history. and you. You see the mets winning that series. And i don't ever like to think that somebody's better but they did the things he needs do to win. They they were very good team. They wanna awful lot of games. And i guess for the first time my life had given credit for the actually play better we did. Yeah well i know. It's difficult to discuss rich. And and that's one of the great Parts of eric sherman's new book is that he was able to Get close enough to you guys and and get into the topic of one thousand nine hundred eighty six with you guys Better than anybody has so far. And that's what makes a two sides glory such a great book. And how did you feel sitting down with eric. Where were you able to to open up like he did with me or or how did you feel well. I think might have told them that. I don't remember that. I've ever talked to anybody else about it Just i don't know being in any way kid is very difficult to tell people. It's like to be a red sox fan at least before two thousand and four and so it it like it lingers it. We'd have people that would play the come from texas or california florida and they would talk about the red sox history and that since you heard about the red sox history you have lived it right and even if you're you've been around the team for two or three years you'll hear the stories but if you haven't lived here all that time you don't really understand quite what is like the only get bits and pieces of it and since lived to have the opportunity to go through it and live it and have a chance to to set history straight. You know that you have a chance to win a world series and lose it was like oh my god. It's like it's the stories that every one of the teams before me didn't do so crushing it's like we one of the things in your lifetime. Magin dreaming as a kid. Red sox fan going. We're going to be the team. That wins the world series. And it didn't happen. You were there we. We had a chance but it didn't happen. That's what makes you unique among your teammates. Riches that your your life long new englander and you grew up with that ball club as we said the nineteen sixty seven impossible dream team. There was no way they were going to lose with carl. Yastrzemski rico petrocelli Mike andrews even even the great elston howard come from the yet to be the catcher and and of course lonborg with it with storied season and I remember having stickers on my bicycle that whole ballclub even the pitching coach. Was sal the barber glee. Imagine that oh what a club. I mean with the with the triple crown season of yeahs from bridgehampton long island. They weren't supposed to lose right. And certainly than i mean dick williams who it's like. He was the guy he was amazed with with a t. Yeah a great manager of course a hall of famer a disciplinarian and He was telling people that's what he's gonna do is light a fire under these guys and they're going to play better than they've ever played before and they certainly did and Oh what a year. And what a story and what a story we spoke about tonight now. I want to ask you rich. When did you feel you wanted to coach. How did how did you get into that then. does your experience ever spill over to your coaching. Well i i think that's probably what makes you who you are your experiences during your life. Experiences wanting to get back into the coaching was something that just kind of evolved and tried other things like what was going to be my next job in life and for a little while it was being apparent had three children and my wife for just bringing up our kids and then one thing led to another before you know what the kids were. Little league in your. I don't really want to be the head coach. But i'll be the assistant coach and help out be around it and and before. I know what. I'm coaching in highschool and somebody called me list. We have a minor league team have an interesting coaching. so my seem as the prayers serve. What should i do next to is. What what i do with my life and it got to be that well. Baseball is my vocation. That's what i do. And so after. Coachee independent ball for little while to coach with the red sox in the minor leagues and perfect been with them ever since and I guess everybody has a calling. And i guess as long as i can wear baseball uniform and take some of the experiences that i've had learned the things that they're trying to teach and what makes championship ball clubs. And sometimes it takes the pain of losing to gain the confidence of learning how to win perfectly said rich that you guys ever get together Red.

"The revelations was that you know he hadn't ever. He healed from the scar not just that he had to endure but the payment his family did also in the aftermath. A game six and what was interesting. Was dad in the aftermath. The immediate aftermath of about world series You know he didn't really eat. He didn't really feel the brunt of that crudeness You know The media until the following spring training when he starts getting asked about it again and again and again features. Forget but you know particularly if you didn't live in boston but The city of boston through the red sox victory parade and big rally at government center. That the true i think close to a million people are so it was a very celebrated team following the kind of season that they had and The way they won the pennant against the angels was just. It was remarkable and fans. Didn't forget that. I mean it was badge ical ride throughout the whole summer But it was just the way that it ended. I think That that's shock. It took a while for. It's really sinking with a lot of the fans the media and But there are you know to answer your question He never got over scarves it But he did come come to terms with it. He lewke wilson became great friends. Which is actually how. I got to know bill They would do autographs earnings together and the ended up putting all three of his kids through college with the money that he made signing that photo of monkeys greg ground ball of what the got past them. Wow great story there eric. Boy now bruce hurst as good as a number two starter is. You're gonna find that that season with the red sox now you mentioned that Bruce actually broke down during the interviewed showing the feelings that that these guys still have. Yeah i think it's you know it's interesting about perks so you asked the war. And i am i apologize. I don't think i answered the second part of the question. You ask anyone. Give me a hard time about de being interviewed as much as bruce can give anybody a hard time which he such a great guy i he really didn't by he didn't want to do the interview at first Because he had promised himself. I think that he wouldn't talk about you. Know the series a anymore it had been about four years since he talked about it But he was one of the last that i interviewed. And i said wow bruce I interviewed everybody else. And if i fly out to phoenix to see you because all my introduce redone in person. I do that for a reason. you know. And he says well. Now if you're gonna fly all the way out of phoenix. I'll give you as much time as you need. And he came around. I don't wanna be that guy Yes he yeah. This is the guy that almost won three world. Series games including a clincher. And you know it still. affects an emotionally today now. He's he's thrilled that they've won four world series since then No one was getting hard for him. Apparently with that i won in two thousand and four But yeah he gets emotional value. You know. I think with all the retired players that i talked to. They all go through the emotions of you know what happens. When syrian stops. What happens career is over. Well what happens is you're in old man for baseball but you're young man in the real world and that's a very hard adjustment to make And then bruce's case through his greater careers he had and he had a great career You know he almost wishes that he would have gone to college in not gone. What did to college to finish college. And and to work in trade. You know so. It wouldn't have been such a shock after facebook done. Well that's a lot to say right there. eric. I'll tell you now. One of the guy you talked to a guy. You don't hear that much about on the boston. Red sox the great rightfielder dwight evans now he reveals to you that he's never even really spoken length about sixteen right and you're right like you didn't speak at length about it. He's talked about it But we had Over two days about a seven hour conversation with With clemens and your next guest rich deadman. We talk over two separate days without seven hours as well. Yet you know what dwight evans And it's hard you know. I mean some of these guys having even watched The world series You know the eighty six years It's just too difficult you know and It started off great for them. You know they they won the first two and then three of the first five. I and you know of course. It's so well known that there. One strike away from closing up. The mets two outs in the tenth and mets nobody on base and then You know they get the three hits and in the wild in wild pitch to the ground ball the went through bucknor's legs and you know it was just remarkable what happened of course and so. It's a tough thing to relive. I'm sure or speaking of eric sherman tonight on the on. The program His book about the eighty six red sox or really History never revealed a lot of it. All old mysteries answered how The extremes of victory and and the heart wrenching of failure have shaped these boston. Red sox since then now you spoke to roger clemens as we said eric now he talks about game six but he also mentions his his steroid abuse. He addresses that as well well. He addressed it as far as Denying yeah he's used bpd's and and really you know talk more about his work ethic that he's always had and and that i can definitely vouch for I mean anyone. I've ever talked to about roger clemens. First of all like they say he was the hardest working guy they've ever seen. He would run five miles a day he be in the weight room and and i that i actually observed that too when i was reporting on the red sox back in the eighties. You know he in the weight room and You know in the he would have everybody and You know He talked about more or less the effect that the td's had on his family You know having to go through all that you know the trial you know. He was brought up. Of course. i'm per- perjury church. Charges and was queer on that So he would obviously love to make the hall of fame but he's not going to To lose any sleep over it. I suppose So yeah he does to touch on the pd issue and And you know.

"The shortfall is not everybody isn't paying their rent. They're shortfall on their interest on their mortgage payments. They're not doing that. And so they're hurting the class small businesses all over the place who have re opened around the country of various kinds or have always been open. They're going to hurt because people aren't going to have the money. The demand for help from feed banks, which were started in the mid seventies, is a temporary measure and then I'll become a permanent feature of life that's going to go up. Um, uh, car sales are going to fall you then we're going to see auto workers and laid off electricity production is down. That hasn't led to many jobs because of the way utilities organized, but it will lead to some, and we're just going to see a vicious cycle downward rather than a virtuous cycle. Of atleast maintaining Ah weakened economy until we get past this and this this Corona virus epidemic I've been saying from the beginning is going to last into 2022. Delta Airlines recognizes that I had $1000 plane ticket and they sent me a notice saying that I have because I didn't take the flight. I haven't tell September 30th 2022. Do you use it? Usually they give you a year. That's how that's interesting. He other experts are all saying this is going to continue for two years. Um, we're now seeing ah, growth in the number of the states that opened up prematurely, including California. In the number of cases that's going to strain the system that's going to strain healthcare providers and insurance companies as well. And perversely Mark I live in a neighborhood in Rochester, New York, were a number of my Neighbors are professors of medicine at the medical school. They've all had their hours cut. Because there's no money coming in. Because of the the focus on covert treatment. Even though we have Rochester people been very well behaved. We have very few cases and some of them may be getting there. Our respect with a number of were telling me I kept Mito, you know, four days a week or three days a week. Um this is goingto go through the whole economy and If it is just irresponsible. You know, the first duty of our national government is defense. But another duty is in the preamble with it. It's equal equal justice and promoting the general welfare and what we're doing here is creating a system where a handful of very lucky duckies because of how their position are doing really well. You have a bunch of billionaires whose fortunes have gone up 2030 40% this year alone. Um, and at the same time people who work in the traditional industries and invested in those they're having a terrible time. Local governments are going to start having to lay off people. They're going to try and not lay off cops because that's how we work the system, but they're going to have to do layoffs and cuts because we're not addressing the real fundamental problems and as I predicted in writing in my 2016 biography If a virus hopscotches around the world on jetliners, Trump won't know what to do, even though it was a pandemic that killed his grandfather 100 years ago. That's just almost two. Incredibly poetic, sadly poetic literary. I guess it's the way may be to put it. I also think that you know, I mentioned this was it yesterday, But I was talking about the velocity of money. You know, economists talk about the velocity of money. The rate at which you know, money moves through the economy from one person or one business to another, exactly, and the bottom up, bail out, you know, sort of what you were talking about the $600 these supplements they help That money moves through the economy and feed all of these different businesses there. It's critical, then that that money find its way to those who need it. If you just feed it to the corporate structure and the richest Americans, in this case that money doesn't find its way to the economy. Right? Well, one of the things Eric Sherman, who's one of the writers of D C report did a really good piece about was how the way the loans that become grants. If you follow the rules were made to big companies was really set up to be a marketing tool for the biggest banks to strengthen their ties to the most lucrative customers and small business people all across America. Who tried to get alone couldn't do it. I mean, I felt I had a fiduciary duty to seek alone for D C report, which is legally a charity and is qualified for it and wouldn't be big. I think were eligible for $27,000 or so. And I was ready to go at our bank. I pushed the button finally connected about three minutes or five minutes after the time, they said they would take them and then it's said we've taken all the applications were going to take and I've called him. I've complained that. So what are you doing and they go? Well, you know, we don't do any more of that business. That's because they don't want to do little businesses. And and I think I mentioned you on a previous show. One of the ways small business has been cut out is several of the big banks have put out a form. That if you're not an existing customer, they ask you. Do you have a savings account? I don't know any business in the world that has a savings account. That's what individuals have. You're right. I don't know. I don't see also why? There aren't strategist there at the federal level. And this is clearly where you do need government. These are situations they can't you know, possibly be handled except by an organization as big as the federal government. But I don't see why they're not individuals there who can strategize. You know, we learned in the not being allowed to do their jobs on arrival. And scientists have been kicked out of administration and or otherwise resigned. I wantto people Yeah, you know, next time. I guess I'll talk to David about that about the election, will you? I really want to get to the election. You did touch on it when you talk about armed guards and all the rest, But I think there's going to be a contested election and it's not going to be one of those elections were, you know a bunch of guys in suits and women who are wearing their best outfits and makeup and all this stuff fit there on the set. And it's talk about things, and by the end of the night, they declare winners in all of these different states. It's going to take days on. There's going to be a cloud of doubt, and it's going to be contested. I suspect if if he loses by Trump in ways that we never unprecedented ways. Yeah, You know, we've all become accustomed to this pageant that the networks put on and they spend a lot of money on it, And they've been quite accurate and good about their projections of things. But that's not what's gonna happen this time. And Ben Smith, who was the new media columnist of The New York Times, is Commons Monday in the business section, which is where I worked, uh, is turning out to be a fabulous columnist. He's maybe even better than the person who first had that job. David Carr. And he has a really good column in Monday's New York Times about What's going to happen on election night? You're not going to know it even three o'clock the next morning in all likelihood, what the election outcome is and that there is a deliberate sabotaging of a post office. We were one of the first news organizations to write about how the new postmaster general, an expert in logistics, who should know how to make the post office more efficient. Is using his skills to sabotage mail delivery and memos and e mails have come out. We've gotten union leaders to say they've told us you know, we don't want the mail delivered on time. I subscribe to a free service. Anybody can get a U. S. P s That sends me images of the letters I should expect in packages each day. Well, it's completely useless. Now. Packages come five days later, I get an image. They should come. But there's no package or that's all part of the plan. Way. Have to wrap up David. I'm so sorry. We've got a rebel. No, no, no, no, no, This is great. It's juicier. You kidding? I could talk to you for four days. It's DC reports dot org's find those those articles that's revisit this post office thing. It's clearly Ah, huge scandal. This big trump donor is now a Postmaster general is dissembling it But your latest is push our is Trump and the radical Republicans push our economy over a cliff. And it makes total sense..

I had I had probably, but I I had a lot of a lot of good years in the minor leagues. And and. I moved up. You kept thinking the next year. I'm going to be in a big reason. I ended up spending two years in AAA which wasn't so bad because it was San Diego that was a triple A team before they went into the bigwigs. But but coming up with the reg, which was the prelude to the big red machine was really a thrill for me. And all those guys I'm still friends with today the bench and rose Tony Perez. We started in the minor leagues together. Wow. You know, it was great the reds. Always had good teams. I Frank Robinson was terrific. Oh, tough tough guy. But but got to know him pretty, well, you were mentioned Veda Pinson. And it was what's interesting about those years as I played for three managers in about four years over there. Josh managers. I had I had were I had daybreak and I had I forget the other guy who was a third base coach for a while with me in San Diego. But there were three managers. So it was great experience.

Time grades. How about that day? When you find out your coming here tonight. That was a shock for me. Because anytime you get traded for the first time, it's always a shock. And and of course, the Mets were not a very good team. And I didn't really like New York, you know, as big noisy, and, you know, the whole thing, and and there's a little bit of a story if I can tell you real quick. I just got an operate. A I in many operations for me in general manager, Cincinnati was a guy named Bob house them, and I was in Saint Louis in my home. And I thought he was calling the CEO's feeling and before he can say anything I said Mr. house, I'm looking forward to next year. Feel great. I felt terrible. And and he said, well, I'm glad you feel good because we traded you to the Mets. The story goes on. And and so then then he said Bing Devine the general manager of the Mets is going to call you. And I knew being as a kid growing up in Saint Louis. He did call me about an hour later. And he said we've been trying to make a trade for you. New York is great the metro up and coming came, and I said, you know, this divine. Thank you so much for making me feel a lot better. You say you welcome.

A lot of people have been there. You're gonna get big crowds out there. I hope so a lot of Mets fans, and I hope I got real complete confidence that I really like this book because it's really not a a book about the every game that year, it's really about friendships, and and and caring about each other and aging generally about what life is all about. And we we made a trip out to see Tom Seaver a couple years ago when he wasn't started not traveling. And we want to be with him. And took three other teammates and Eric went out with us. And he was really a it was a bittersweet moment because Tom was not feeling great. And we got a chance to sit down with him and in reminiscent little bit in the in the weekend was really great because it was a a wonderful exchange of memories and wonderful things to go through. And then you know, we all felt our age. But the reality was we and we stretched out the truth. A little bit of the story football players do that all the. It was a great a weekend for us. And really at the crux of the book is about that trip out there. But it's not just about Tom. What's about to the memories and commodity? That was with all the guys on the team. And it's I don't know if you guys noticed we've lost ten guys from that. Yes. Great manager, you'll Hodges and for the co she'll be in the hall of fame that's a crime. That's an absolute crime people's garages. The place to me the institution lacks any credibility when the all time leader in hits and a guy that was a great book and dodger and manage the Mets was sixty nine World Series win a not in the hall of fame. Now, Eric, I know you for many years Alex Sherman who wrote the book with our champs you've written with but many other books as well. Tell me about this one specifically sitting down with art and going through all these great memories. Well, we interviewed nearly everybody that had anything to do with the team all the players the heads grounds crew per person, Mrs Gill Hodges. So that was really the center of the book. But but the angle what truly makes this different from the other forty books written about sixty nine Mets was that journey, and you can really say that it was the final the final reunion of the franchise. Tom Seaver with with some of his teammates and pals from that sixty nine team because he won't be there this summer. That's right. And for me personally. I mean, we rented a van at San Francisco airport. I've got Kouzmin riding shotgun. I've got Ron Swoboda bud Harrelson arch champs ski in the back seat. And we're driving up to Tom Seaver house, and vineyard how much better does it get? Well, don't be mad at me aren't. But as soon as I went to the van, and we drove it I thought about Cleon Jones.

Well, maybe it'd be great to take a couple of players out there and the good Jessica that were really. A tough thing because we had to figure out who to take to try to get them to coordinate. The trip out to beat us out in California. And and the real difficult thing was. Tom not feeling. Well, we didn't know if we got out there that he would be able to sit down with us because I did talk to his wife, and she said, you know, Tom has good days, and he has bad days. And so really was roll the dice and to make a long story short. We went out there. When we got there. We found out we thought he would be okay. We went and saw him for a day. And it was an incredible day for us to sit down and reminisce with him. And and and just talk about things that we all felt really strongly about and we were kids again and an Eric did a great job and putting it all together. And he got a chance firsthand to see the camaraderie that was on that team. And and the love that we have for each other. And and the book is really about that trip out there and some interviews with the players and then coming back from that trip. And it's really a book about about the teamwork about the love of your teammates and aging, you know, we all have gone through that. And and I think people will will find it really interesting to see how it all transpired after fifty years. Wow. Eric what was it like to tag along metro? Well, so we all arrived, art, art. And I traveled from New York. San Francisco with buddy Harrelson, Ron Swoboda, flew San Francisco from New Orleans and. Jerry Kouzmin from Minnesota, and we all converged on San Francisco International airport within thirty minutes of each other. I rented a big van I'm driving. I get Jerry kouzmine driving shot or riding shotgun. And in the backseat was buddy art in rocky Swoboda. I mean, can you imagine? I mean, the whole experience was really surreal. I've I've interviewed hundreds of baseball players in the other five books that I've written, but how do you compare and I'm a fly on the wall? And and listening to these great stories and within a few hours, I became one of them. And can you imagine a kid from the New York area experiencing that and being able to write about it? It was probably the highlight. Well, it was the highlight of my writing career, I can only imagine because even looking at the old games in hearing Lindsey Nelson again in hearing those names that as a fourth grader were burned into my brain in public school in queens, Ron Swoboda art, jam ski get this hearing, those names is amazing. And by the way, driving to Tom Seaver house, sit tight house. I it's it's amazing to me. I'm I was struck in reading the book by how many details you guys? Remember you in the teammates after all these years talk a little bit about that. Well, for you know, a lot of the guys who don't live in the area. Don't see or not talk about the team too much. I live in New York City area. So for me every day somebody talks to be about nineteen sixty nine. It was such a incredible year for for so many of us, and and fans, and and people who were around to see it in those who weren't even born who have been told about that team from their parents, and the grandpar- I always want to talk about the things that happened. He was such an incredible year with with things that happened on the field and off the field. And I think I think what people say to me why is that team remembered so so well, and so by so many people I think it has to do with where that team came from you mentioned before we were known as the loveable losers. I don't I don't get credit for being part of the bad teams there because I didn't come over to the Mets till nine hundred sixty eight. That's right. You weren't. Okay, art. You don't have to hold that. Okay. But but I was there in sixty eight when we finish nights a half game out of last place. And I think part of the reason that team is love so much is because of where we came from the fact that we we were so bad, and then we'd beat an incredibly great Baltimore Oriole team in the World Series. And the other thing I think to remember is what was going on in the world at the time in New York City in the late sixties were such a devastating time for sewer part of of life in New York, and in this country, the Warren Vietnam was tearing the country apart assassinations in the city of New York was going under social unrest, financially political upheaval. So I think what we did as a team we were able to make people forget about their problems for a brief period of time. And they've remembered that in pass that onto generations. And and I'm always happy when somebody comes up to you. I've had guys and girls who were in Vietnam and said to me, you know, we were in the worst place in the world. And for a brief moment, you made us feel better about our lives. And I. I think as a as a person, I think if you can make somebody feel better about their life at some point you really accomplish something. So I really like to hear those kind of stories, but I think those are two things that really resonate with people who remember that team to pass it on from generation to generation there's a great deal of pride and joy that you brought to New York. I remember that distinctly you've talked about the camaraderie of you guys in the players, and Eric I'm wondering for you as a sports biographer and someone who wasn't part of the team. What was that outside perspective? Like in to help you tell the story. Well, I couldn't believe how how much they remembered. You know, you're talking fifty years and the cameraderie in the back and forth to joking back and forth. And you know, you have you had all these dynamics. You know, you have the fact that buddy Harrelson was Tom Seaver is best friend and they're back together. Again, yet Jerry Kouzmin who's a pretty far right conservative with rocky Swoboda who's pre you know, they they call them the flower child. He's so there is all of this happening. And you know, I really thought, you know, I'm going to be a little bit anxious a little bit nervous. But as a writer. And as a biographer, you know, the pressure was on for me to just a sponge, everything just absorb everything and keep everything going and ask questions, and and make sure I'm recording it in some way. I mean when I was in in the van some of the stories were so great. I mean, I have to admit I was writing stuff down as driving and then going back and asking Kouzmin or Swoboda or art later. You know, true to repeat that please. So I could get it. Right. I was recording. So the weekend absolutely flew by. But it was just a wonderful experience. And you'll get the trip was actually just the spine of the book. You know, the first chapter in the last shoot to the planning of the of the journey. Yes. To savers and then the journey itself. And but the middle of the book was incredible to with the people that we got to speak to just real quickly. Ed, charles. He was our first interview, and it was like living history of the civil rights movement and his relation to Jackie Robinson. So that was intriguing. So so there's a lot to this book. It's really like to books in one. Yeah. There is I'm glad you mentioned that because this was a period where of course baseball was now integrated. But there were still quite a history of segregation and separateness in the major league baseball. And yet the Mets seem to. They had an integrated team and everybody did seem to get along. Really? Well, it was a great group of guys. And and you had best both worlds with the is. We had a player by the name of Don Clendenin who really helped us win and he got to the club in June. But he was a he was an instigator. He was kind of guy that would would yell across the room and get you going and just loved him for all that. He was he was a guy that really he was a lawyer we book. Yeah. He was a he was a lawyer, and he was a typical clubhouse warrior because he knew a little bit about everything in a lot about nothing. But. I'd like to say that about him. But he he unfortunately passed away. But on the other side, we headed Charles who was the calming influence on Ryan club. He was a guy that that would things would go wrong. You could just say what Eddie and he would make you feel better. He had gone through so much as a player he should have been in the big leagues a lot sooner and got caught up in segregation and all the problems of of a black athletes. Black baseball players, and Eddie was was a real charm on that team. And unfortunately, he passed away. But but we've lost ten guys from that team, unfortunately, but there's still a nucleus of of wonderful guys. And there's hopefully be a wonderful reunion in June. The metric gonna do a a weekend in June for us. And and I think fans will get caught up in in really enjoy seeing some of the players again can't wait for that. But going back to what you were just saying about at Charleston. Some of the other black players you write about the regrets that you have that you hadn't done more in the past to stand up for those black teammates when they have the state different hotel. Tells and I'm just wondering like, you know. What would you what would you do differently? I guess if you had that opportunity. I, you know, it's interesting you bring that up because I look back on that year particular nineteen sixty two I was playing in Macon Georgia. A good place to visit once in a while. But I spent a whole summer there and making Georgia, and we had to take the black players and dark skinned Cubans to differ hotels. They couldn't eat in a restaurant, and I look back on that particular year. And I think about what I could have done or should it done. And it was just a kid. I was I was just eighteen or nineteen years old just trying to get to the next level. And while we accepted it. I look back on it. Now wish I would have done something different. He's have been more vocal or focus stand. And and and really stood up for those those guys I really felt close to in retrospect, I'm sorry about that. But but again, we were just trying to get to the next level. We were all just young kids trying to make it to the big leagues. And and one Eddie told us that story when I knew about that story for him and the plight he had to get to the big leagues that Charles. I was so sympathetic to those because he was such a terrific ballplayer. And and we fans were robbed of seeing him play baseball in the big leagues because of it can you tell us. Yeah. And it was an amazing. If you guys were young, I think that's an important thing that people can forget, I mean, when I was looking back at the pictures and looking at everybody was like everybody's so young Gil Hodges so young you'll Hodges who is I think someone who's been overlooked by major league baseball and should be in the baseball hall of fame. I still don't get it. We can talk about that off air vote for you. Gotta get that going, but he had this platooning. He had this this policy of platooning positions can talk a little bit about that. I thought baseball notes I've got them right here in front of me. Gill was a manager that managed by feel. You don't see that much anymore in baseball. He he he didn't need sabermetrics with you the print outs of of certain things he knew his players that he wanted to get everybody involved on a.

"Who would run. So is by then running or is he would be running. I think I would take him at his word that he's running. I think as a Freudian slip. He's we've seen all these indications. You have this consultants saying he wants to run we know his family is on board. You've got him hiring people all these things point to Iran. And I think he's a guy who really wants to be president. He's run several times before is. He said, not always successfully. And he sees it opening so sure why not give it a shot. He's going to have a hard time making the case that he's the most progressive candidate as he said in that clip, why even say that rather than just one explicitly a little to the centre-left, which presumably would be his path. I think I go back to what you said about the fact that he sometimes an inconsistent campaigner and gaffe-prone campaigner. We see them making these mistakes because he's a rookie. But even a veteran like Biden can make these sort of strange tactical decisions. They don't have to explore later. I agree. No one's going to size up as the most progressive candidate in this race by any stretch of the imagination. And last thing in our last thirty seconds, do Biden and Beto kinda weirdly have the same path to the nomination that they have to compete against each other win, it seems that way, you know, they're they're both really cares. Matic candidates. They both are sort of trying for this this moderate lane. So it's unlikely that both of them are going to end up as the, you know, the final two or three I think David Graham covers politics for the Atlantic. Thank you so much. Thank you.
