"Set out and said that they wanted to win this division and we were just here to support them. We've got a long way to go and a lot of work to do. But what they've accomplished thus far is definitely worth celebrating tonight. Fantastic, man. Super Cool. Uh we go out to the cash through texting just real quick Outline checks, announces copes. My friend just sent me a screenshot. ESPN projected the Giants to be 70 and 92 with a 1.2% chance of making the Playoffs. That's a little lower than Fangraphs had them at 5%. Larry Bird. Call that out. We could play that for you in a couple of minutes as well more from Gabe Kapler talking about taking steps in the right direction. This is what I'm getting at that I was, you know. I think if you're a fan who thought boy I don't know that they should be celebrating this. We've seen him win championships. It wasn't some 52 year playoff drought or, you know, going through the Seattle Mariners go through, never getting into the playoffs or what the Padres are worried about. You know if it's one of those situations and you're in a big drought I know it's tough because you go. Yeah. Do you celebrate the just happy to be here? But you should celebrate the No one expected us to be here and you can still have that ship on your shoulder and not let your guard down. So I do think that for some of these young guys for the guys that were cast off for the players that were not expecting it again. You're to Alan on the Cache Creek text line Who sends this Screenshot says the Giants were projected to give 70 and 92. We talked about that a bunch here, But every one of those players just heard that Every one of those guys and you can call it ego. You can call it. Uh, you know, uh, being a perfectionist, You can call it a having a drive to succeed. None of these guys get to the big leagues without the resilience that it takes to go through the ups and the downs of a baseball season and to do it for as long as most. All of these guys have done it going back to college or little League or whatever it is to put in the extra work and have this resilience. You deserve to have some of this celebratory stuff. And this is one of the pinnacle point of this. Pouring champagne on your head when you clinch a playoff berth. So what happens in baseball when they clinch a playoff spot when you clinch a playoff round? You celebrate drinking champagne Game Capital, though, says this is just one step in with the overall goal for this season was at the beginning of spring training. Out here in the quiet of the dugout away from a lot of a lot of the celebration. I think it's worth just taking a step back and saying, Man, it's it's kind of cool to be in the position that we're in. I, You know, we talked to the players after before we pop champagne about, um, this is a good step in the right direction. It's not the final step, but it's one that is worth saying this is, um So quite an accomplishment, and nobody obviously expected us to have this sort of year And here we are in the mid mid nineties and winds with a with a guaranteed spot in the playoffs. It's a nice accomplishment. It's a damn good feeling is what it is. And for a guy like Gabe Kapler, who misses the postseason, his two years in Philadelphia wanted to be a manager for such a long time and then ends up here and the the You know, Murphy said this a bunch of the last couple weeks that nobody else called. Nobody else was looking to hire Gabe Kapler and now here he is not only was Be looking to hire Game capital, said Ken Rosenthal on last week on KNBR and He was saying, Yeah, you look at the coaching staff when he brought a bunch of these guys in and he was scratching his head going, boy. A lot of these guys very little, if no experience at all, and now we're talking about these guys getting plucked from the giant staff like you know, a carcass of an NFL team that's gone to an FC an NFC championship and you immediately start grabbing their coordinators and making them your head coaches. They're grabbing their position coaches and making them coordinators. This is what happens and I think we're going to start to see this with the Giants. So forgive capital are far on. And Scott. This is a major accomplishment, not Just because everybody said yes, the roster of the makeup of this team. Isn't quite so good. But there's a personal element of this that Gabe Kapler didn't have huge levels of success was criticized greatly in Philadelphia. And now here he is with the best team in all of baseball. For him to say it's kind of cool to pull back and look at it like this. I think that's a cool moment. It's a very human moment. But it's also a a proud of yourself, Pat yourself on the back moment. I think it's well deserved and he's going to win Manager of the Year without question. That's one of the great stories. I think in baseball this season that you know we watch sports to see players and people overcome. Um, these challenges overcome these odds to do things that it seems like just normal people can't do it to have That resilience every day and Gabe Kapler's been managing as well between the ears. I think he's been managing between the lines to this point this season more from Jake Tapper here. I talked earlier about the Giants clinching back in 2000 and three on September 17th. And fully pay Lou having to manage that rotation. And, you know, you think about a guy who who struggled a little bit managing rotations and Dusty Baker certainly had an issue, setting up a rotation for a postseason Felipe Alou probably less about his rotation and more about how how he used his pulpit. Oftentimes he would mean Jim Brower to like 90 games. It felt like every single season Chancer B was out there. Throwing like three and four innings in relief at different times in his career under Philippe to anyway, he just he went to his bullpen a whole lot in 2000 and three he.

"He said that he thought when he got traded over here, looking at this roster, looking at how many veterans all the success that they had had over the years that he thought, Yeah, I'm going to get an opportunity to go to the playoffs. But then you got guys like Brandon Belt. Who say Yeah, when you go every year as a young player, it's easy to take it for granted because you just expect it to happen. You know Buster Posey that story about him winning the World Series in 2010 and Micro Co saying to him, You know this doesn't happen every year in, Buster said. I don't see why not now. Buster Posey, maybe a little bit of a different story because of all the accomplishments he had early in his career. But I do think that for these guys who you know as recently as 2016 after that run, and then into 2017, the fifth place finish 2018, the fourth place finish 19 and 22 3rd place finishes. And the ends of their contracts. You start to wonder whether or not you're going to get back to the postseason. And if you do, will it be with this team? That might have been the end of this era? And it certainly is not yet, so they've got work to do in game, Tepper said. Tomorrow is important. We always say that every day tomorrow's important I also love to ask them. So what do you change at this point? I go back to 2000 and three when they clinched on on September 17th was the date which you know that be what? Three days from now, four days after they would have clinched yesterday. So within the same week when they clinched, then it was sort of a big management thing was. How does Felipe Alou managed this roster? How does he keep guys fresh? How does he get the arms in? How does he look? The guys throw and go deep into games without getting anybody hurt that you're going to need for the postseason and, of course. You bounced that in four games in the division series game, Camper said. We don't change anything. And I think that maybe because this team is built with so much versatility with so much depth with so many different guys that can beat you. You really can continue to do what you've been doing for the last 5.5 months and keep guys fresh because that's been his thing since day one. Keep guys fresh, get them their basket yourselves the matchups in certain situations that give you that leverage and often times you come out on top Brandon Belt said as much after the game. The reason they've had so much to Access. Is they come into every game with a plan with a strategy and no matter what happens, maybe to a point of being stubborn, and maybe Brandon Belt is the perfect guy for this sort of thought process or mindset or game plan that you're not going to knock him off of his plan. Maybe nobody more stubborn about their strike zone and their approach at the plate in all of baseball than Brandon Belt, he said. Nobody's going to knock us off of our plan, and that's why they've gotten to where they are now. So for young guys like Logan Web, his first postseason experience, he said he was trying to pick Crawford's brain about whether or not he gets used to Stuff like this, Brandon Bell said he felt like the champagne sticking in his eyes as a feeling you hadn't had in a long time. You forget how good the champagne stinks so Vagina now at 94 50 on pace for 106 wins would be one of the best for US seasons in franchise history again in the earliest they've ever clinched the postseason birthday go for nine in a row today against the Padres. By the way, the Padres I saw there was a clip going around yesterday on Twitter before the game. Joe Musgrove member through that no hitter earlier this year for the Padres has been one of their better pitchers. On the day of the trade deadline or right after the trade deadline back at the end of July. I guess they asked him When they were still in the mix. Really, with the Dodgers, his thoughts on the Dodgers acquiring shares. Remember the Padres were in those reports initially that the Padres had made the deal for sure. Marcus the water boy, and I were at that Giants Dodger Game on Thursday, July 29th and started to buzz around the crowd. Oh, boy, Padres are getting sure is there then about halfway through the game has changed, and the Dodgers were getting sure. So they asked Joe Musgrove about it must group together. You know, I still think we're better than the Dodgers. What's he gonna It's going to pitch once a week will be out there once every couple of days just so funny for another starting pitcher to kind of hammer a starter. In that way. The Padres are like 19.5 games behind the Dodgers or something. They just keep on falling further and further and further back, really setting the stage for Bruce Bochy to take that job. By the way this offseason, he's coming back. I'm telling you, you're going to see him 19 times a year next year. Padres certainly will. There was always a good thing. I don't know if that is a good thing. Let's get the world title this year and then worry and deal with it. Pokey. At the Padres next season. On the other side, we'll get into a whole bunch of the sound everything you miss. From last night, Buster Posey talking back to the postseason. Farhan Zaidi, proud of their accomplishments, even shouts out his analytics team and talks about what a big impact they had on this season. Gabe Kapler, Obviously Jake McGee, Brandon Belt, Evan Longoria, Brandon Crawford, Logan Web all of these guys who contributed this year and are continuing to contribute check in after the game throughout their celebration on what this means for them, and what their goals are. Are going forward is this team built? For World Series run remains to be seen a six month season. Certainly we know the war of attrition for this Giants roster. They can put up with it and continue to get winds, then continue to grind teams into a paste er into a dust and 91 win to get to 94 50 over the Padres Yesterday, we'll get to all the postgame sound and celebration. Also the Raiders going to win in the first Monday night tilt of the season over the Baltimore Ravens in overtime last night. 33 27 the final Derek Carr 34 56 400. And 35 yards, a couple of touchdowns Darren Waller over 100 yards in the game as well and I take I gave you last week. I said How many 40 Niner fans are happy about this? But I've got Darren Waller more receiving yards this year than George Kittle. We'll see how that goes down as the season progresses, plenty more coming up as we celebrate the Giants back into the postseason first time since 2016 you're listening to the leadoff spot came here, one of 45 and 6 80. It's the sports leader. Go through your morning routine with copes. The leadoff spot is on your Google home. Smart speaker. Just a play KNBR. Better.

"Should be beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful deal. They got a good field to, uh, speaking of great events in person. How about the Giants? Clinching a playoff spot with a win tonight at home against the Padres as well might as well. Let's just go do it. The man who Played a huge role in hiring Farhaan Society because the line right now on the, um a guest line, you know him. You love him. Giants President Larry Baer. Larry, This is a remarkable thing. The Giants are one win from clinching a playoff spot. Congratulations to you, guys. Good morning, Larry. Hey. Good morning. Good morning, Mac. Uh, it's incredible. I mean, it's really, really You know, pleased with where we are, obviously, And but you know, we're taking pause. And there's not just, um 19 games, not 18 19 games to go. But in addition to that, you know, obviously we want to, you know, Isaan lots of prizes here, but one big prizes to try to, you know to win the division and Taliban who won the division, but One thing we've learned over the years as you do celebrate milestones and accomplishments. Can I know Gabe and Farhaan and Scott and the group? All believe that you know, qualified for the playoffs is in accomplishment. So we're thrilled that that possibility exists on this home. Stand starting tonight. It's awesome. I mean, look at look at since you guys have built the stadium, there's only been this may see 2000. You guys made it 22. You made it. 23. You made it. 2010. You made it. 2012. You made it 2014. You made it 2016. You made it. This will be the eighth only the eighth time. I mean, it's a lot. Actually. It's a really good number. But what I'm saying is, it's a special occasion. So we know you guys are encouraging people to go out with $13 tickets tonight. Wonderful. Beautiful. Yeah, Come on, you know that. You know, when you look at the schedule, you know people that look at the schedule when we were fully open for capacity, which wasn't until about the middle of the year. In terms of, you know, coming to games that people say well, Monday night against Diego and September school back, it may not be. You know the number one target a game, but we have a great opportunity $13 tickets. It's also to see you know a possible a possible clinch. Which is great one thing on as you go through the years, it reminded me and you mentioned I think back to this is a year that doesn't get a lot of focus 2000 and three And as you remember your 2000 and two we went to Game seven of the World Series in 2000 and three Felipe was our manager, and we want 100 games in 2000 and three, right? Yeah, And and? And so there was some folks you know, inside the Giants who were just sort of okay. What kind of celebration? Should we have? Because we won the division that year? As with 100 games, 100 Okay, celebration. Should we have to win the division? Because my goodness last year we were in Game seven of the World Series. We have long way to go. I mean, we celebrate. Mm. Police, who I think in many ways is sort of a, uh, baseball and mortal, just a wonderful person and it really, you know, sort of a guru among one of the most well respected baseball. People on planet Earth said. Listen. We celebrate every milestone? Yeah, it's important in 162 game season and the guys the players, the coaches, the manager, you know, they think about February 10th when you report to spring training or whatever the data is, and they think about all the journey. And so that's why, um, while you know, everybody will say, Hey, we want to kill fish on top of the Dodgers and everything that should we clinch a playoff spot tonight or tomorrow. It's not worthy, and it's an important milestone. And I remember going back to 2000 and three again with the reference of the previous year being in Game seven World Series. Hey, is it a big deal? Clinching the division in that year, for instance, just as an example and the answer is was from yoga. Nobody who any less exalted than Felipe Alou. Uh, yes, It's a big deal. So there's I mean, can you spill the beans at all? About what? What will do Well, they plant Will the players pop Champagne for question? Yeah, well, I'm not like that, because that's really the players call and we have the manager of the coaches and how how they go about it, what they do and how they do it, So I think that that's you know, we'll leave that for the before Everybody's eyes. But, you know, I think that would certainly there will be a should we win tonight tomorrow whenever it will be celebratory in the ball inside the ballpark. You know, Larry Laboratory Field, OK? Yeah. Good. You guys do celebrations Well, too, But it will be because this is an incredible pennant race. I mean, right? I know that's 62. Neither you nor I remember 62. Um, but we do remember 93. And this is as close to 93 as it gets with the added bonus of the Giants can make the playoffs doesn't pose didn't missing out on the division. But there's a chance Larry of eclipsing the win record in San Francisco history here. I mean, this is simply it's almost I think we won't appreciate this pennant race until, like 10 20 years from now, this is the Dodgers supposed to be the best team. Bill PLASCHKE wrote a column at the start saying. Is this the best team in baseball history? And, you know they're not that far off from it. They're going to win 100 plus game and they're looking up at the German looking up at the Giants, Larry Yeah, which is incredible. I mean, you know when I look at each step along the way that this year and it's kind of hard, I think, sometimes in the moment to appreciate What? What? What? The group is accomplished, right? And and I go back. We're talking the other day about, you know, you look at the schedule. And we were talking the other day back when we come in new that the giant Dodgers Sunday night ESPN game was condition just one example of how that this team has risen to the occasion. We were looking at that game. Sunday night. Uh, good one so we could go last night, I guess and Sunday night ESPN game and then we would go to Colorado The next day. We called the Rockies and asked them to, uh, can you move the game time back, and they need to keep it as a day game as we have. We were that we understood. That's that's the way it works at Holiday Day game, but that we did off an hour. So they say, we'll move the game from 1 to 2 o'clock economy because we were going to get in about 1 30 in the morning, and so everybody's like, Okay, that's that's like Perhaps a horrible players schedule, right? You go, of course, field stuff enough as it is, and you're on very little rest and you coming up in emotional behavior series And what that what's of course, feel going to look like you know, Monday, Tuesday Wednesday And look at the way they roasted vacation. So that all these little pieces where the team you know what Just incredible credit to the players. The manager, the coaches thrown office will be able to get everybody prepared for each of these laws. These segments of the season that could be challenging And to not get into any big deals. It's been a pretty evenly tempered and we could get to this 100 plus winds. You know you avoid big losing streaks, right and You go back to 93..

"There was so many things now on your plate under Felipe Alou, and it seemed like it got bigger and better for you What happened in those first couple of years with Felipe Alou, the change the dynamics of you being that bench coach Yeah, well, I I You know, I think it was a gradual progression. But I will say this, you know, we went to the World Series with dusty in 2000 and two and then you know, uh, dusty parts ways with the organization and goes to Chicago and sleep comes in. And I remember talking to sleep a about staying And he said, Hey, you guys, you guys just went to the seventh game of the World Series. I'd love to have you I don't want to change anything and And that was the same thing when we you know, started in spring training. Uh, he let us do everything we did. We had a great coaching staff and he let us do you know everything that we were doing myself the same responsibility they had under dusty And then it was just great to be around him because after the games, you know that's where I learned about red wine, and I I learned a lot of a lot of stuff about the game that Felipe loved to share. He loved to talk. He loved the whole court. After the ball games, drinking his wine, and I learned an awful lot about the game. Well again once Felipe Alou kind of moved past, then Bruce Bochy came in 2000 and seven Bruce Bochy came in. And you were with Bruce Bochy. And I tell you what the staff that you guys put together. And the and the coaching staff. So I mean, when you start looking back at who was there, and then it started opening up where communications started getting better, More and more. Of coaches and players were starting at communication, that one on one drills and things like that, and I want to throw these names to you, and I really would like to hear what you have in one word saving when you start thinking of Bruce Bochy. Tim Flannery, Billy Hayes, Roberto Kelly, Hensley Meulens, Dave Righetti, Mark Gardner. What is a good word for all those people? Well, it was special, of course, with the success we had so in no, If anything, you have to say family and, you know, family on the coaching staff, and we were. It was like family working for Brian Sabean. And, you know, Giants ownership. That's the way we felt. And it was. It was a special time and special coaching staff. No doubt about it with all the success that we had We're going to take a quick break with Ron Wotus on extra innings and come right back on KNBR, the sports leader. You were listening to the former Giants writing. It's KNBR extra Innings with Bill Lasky sponsored by Leonardo's markets, quite simply the best heard on.

"That's just a tough area to play in the summertime, too. And so he ended up getting out of 95 ended up going to Triple A in 96 97. Really, really put some good years together in 1997, manager of the year you are 88 55. This was the stuff that was really cool. You won 41 of your last 51 games. And you had some talent and triple A, uh, you ended up again with Russia Ortiz, Rich Aurilia, Marvin Benard, Damon Berryhill and name from the past Keith Folk. William VanLandingham Ham, does He, Wilson. It's some great names. I mean, I remember these once I started looking at the roster of my eyes just kept getting bigger and bigger because that was pretty good talent at that era. Yeah, it was it was and, uh, like you said. We went to the league championship series two years in a row. And we lost both times that the Edmonton trappers, which was the A's organization, and, uh, so that's what happened there. But you mentioned those guys. That's why we were good. We had a lot of good players. You know, you mentioned that the Wilson Jacob Kruse, you didn't mention he was He was in there as well. And the number one pick Dante Powell. People may remember his name, but you mentioned the big leaguers that we had. And, you know, obviously Bill Miller. Richard really? These guys were special, You know for me to be in triple A, and then go to the big leagues kind of what the same group. It's always nice if you're managing triple a there, and then that team calls you to the major leagues because you know a lot of the players and you have much more comfortable in your first year. Because you you have so many players that are with you that you've coached. Well, that's exactly what happened in 1998. Dusty Baker grabbed you from triple A and said, Come on up. I want you to be my third base coach and those marriage. It was great. It was good combination. A great coaching staff. You had there under Dusty Baker the first year 98 once you got to that plateau, how did that feel? What did you think, and you were in the big leagues. Oh, it was It was tremendous, You know, Um, you know, I really toiled in the minor leagues, my 11 years but parts of three years in the big leagues and then go back to the minor leagues and seven more years in the minor leagues and your wife travel and what you do, and she had to go through the minor leagues twice and she didn't know what she was getting into. But anyway for Lori, Yeah, get that's right to get to the big leagues. And the B at home. I mean, that was special. I mean, I was with the Giants and got a chance to go up Brian Sabean and, uh, promoted me and Dusty was a manager. He was great. I couldn't have been better. And I couldn't have been around a better manager than dusty, adapt point in time in my career, because I was real serious. And, uh, you know, I didn't understand the value is relationships is probably as much as I should have at that point as a manager and dusty really opened my eyes quite a bit to that. So I was in heaven, driving home from Candlestick or to East Bay and working and living in the same city. It just All the all the all the time in the minor leagues seemed to paid off. Well, what happened after that? Of course you were under for managers. Dusty Baker, Felipe Alou. Bruce Bochy gave Kapler the next one of Apple's Felipe Alou and you became his bench coach. And from there, there was a lot of things in baseball that you start working on more and more, especially in field instruction. The positioning of players, the shifts game strategy base running. There was so many things now on your plate under Felipe Alou, and it seemed like it got bigger and better for you What happened in those first couple of years with Felipe Alou,.

"Out of superlatives. Uh, you pick up a game on the Dodgers on top of everything else, and we got a good week of Sean. On the broadcast doing his pre and post and then doing the in the booth action all week from course field So shot. Great week for you, buddy. Sounded good. It was good to have you on the broadcast. It's good to have you here on the guest line. Polly's off today. So we got Adam Copeland in. So you got Murph in copes. Morning, Sean. Hungry, man. Uh, I'm doing great guys. It's uh, we had a little hiccup last week. But we're back at it again this week, Right? You know, we literally Sean literally. We talked to you. Before that Web game. The Giants had lost three in a row to the Brewers. Since we last talked to you. They went six and one Yeah, it's a fun week. I mean, it gets I'll tell you what I mean talking about the broadcast that done this year. I had to go back and look at the the Games that I have done and the team's record because I feel like it. It's much easier to, you know, do a broadcast when the team wins, Uh, I feel like that. They've won a lot when I've been on because they bid on broadcast to do and, uh I went back and they've lost, I think Last night was my I think they're 12 and three I figured out. Um, but I think he did. I think mostly guys can say that Based on how many games they've won this year, but You do realize that that it makes it much more enjoyable to talk about a team that's doing well and covered. I mean, do a game. I mean, they fly by, even in Colorado with the three games, you know. You know they're all going to average over three hours. That's that's a given. But it goes by really fast when you when you're able to, you know, especially if they're runs that they put up the first two games. Uh, because it's just It's just exciting, right? I mean, you're talking about positivity, and so But it's been. It's been a good run for them. It's been a good runs for me to be able to be broadcast. It's six more so I'm pumped and hopefully we're talking about a playoff appearance. Uh, at some point, I think the magic number right now, um, the calculations right at six to get into a playoff. That's just I mean, that's guaranteed wild card games, so The sights are set a little bit hired math. They want to win the division, of course, but six games already, six games is all they got to win in the next 22 that are a combination of a loss from another team of Padres or the rats. Looks like those are the two teams, um, that are there The 2nd 3rd wild cards right now. So, uh, but it's been great. Been great. Yesterday was awesome. The first time a lot of first we're talking about right first time The team's got to 90 wins this early ever. And the first time all year long is huge, Don and swept the Rockies. So I feel like we can spirit constantly talking about first this club. You just threw out magic number, Sean, he said. Magic over is six for them to clinch a playoff berth officially, and obviously we won't know until probably a couple of weeks from now, whether or not it's the division or the wild card. But when it comes to clinching, I think back to 2003. Murph and I were talking about it. This morning. They clinched on September 17th and then Felipe Alou had to manage him for the next couple of weeks and end up getting bounced in the first round of the playoffs. Is there Is there a stigma to clinching too early? How do you go about, you know, staying locked in and going about your business for the final couple weeks And then maybe in concert with that question? Was there a time you guys clinched earlier that you can remember you have to stay focused for an extended period of time. Yeah, I do worry a little bit about a team that clinches the division early because then you start to overthink things as a manager. He needs to worry about guys Health and I want to be. I want to make it to keep guys strong. I want to keep that healthy. I like I want you to really be 100% by the time that first playoff game start to tweak your rotation around. Yeah, you do things different. You just have to, You know, it's just It's just the mentality. You're not going to push guys through. You're not going to manage like it's a playoff game anymore. You're already in the playoffs, so you think it was a little bit of edge. When you do that, You lose a little bit of momentum. You know, it's it's the the routine and the grind of the whole season. And, you know, trying to win every game you're playing. I think that really helps You care that momentum into the playoffs. So when you clinch really early It's a little bit of a concern, but With this club. They're going to try to win and they want to win the division, so I don't see the Dodgers going anywhere. And so I think they've got to grind to win this divisions maybe at them for the last series of the year, and that's probably what it's going to come down to. So I don't believe in this in this situation. You know, the Giants have to worry too much about that. But you know, you look at teams like you know the Brewers. You know they're going to. They're going to probably clinched their division really early. The East. Looks like it's going to come down to the wire as well. So the brewers would be the one team, but you know, you got three guys at the that, you know, leaving that rotation. Um it takes terrible lot of things. So I don't think Craig Counsell more worry too much about that. In regard to a team that I've been on 97 playoff team up until the end. We clinched on a Saturday before before the final game of the season, so yeah, no, we were were drained it out to the end of that one, and then You know, we're trying to. We're trying to win a division in in 90. Eight, and that goes down to the final game of the season. Right. We win that game we're in and not work. We were guaranteed, and then we lose. We go to the one game wild card against the Cubs, and I was so we're up until the final game of the season of 98 2000, I think was the earliest we made clinch. I can't remember when that was And we lose the first round of playoffs. The match and it's just kind of an epic series, but we felt like, you know, I don't think it was bad early does have to go back and do the numbers on that. But that was a really good that was That was probably I mean, I was looking at numbers. 2000 was another team that, um, that is comparable to this team. As far as you know, when they plant or the record at a certain point..

"Through? Yep. Full crew. Well, crew is awesome. And, uh, well, it's been a race time. Yes, it is The four crew. It's It's also can I still say they had to kick Okay, still say it's baseball season. Most so if you can just it. Yes, you can. When you have the team with the best record in the league. Absolutely. You care, I think. Can we hearken back? There was a day of the three of you Remember this day? Are you all the what was the day the baseball season ended and then Green light the football season. Football season ended. Agreed life for basketball season. I'm not sure about that, actually, but, uh But there was those days and while ago Yeah, I love you know what though? I gotta I gotta be honest. I love September October because you get You get baseball, You get dependent races. You get football, college football and then October you get the playoffs and football in football. I've always I've always tried that. I ask people what's your favorite? Uh, Sports month. Is it this time of year? Or is it the I want to say? It's like maybe April May somewhere around there where you get baseball season started, so you get baseball. You get the Derby. Get the masters in there somewhere, and then you get hockey playoffs and basketball playoffs. It was like something going on every single night of the week. You're able to grind but those of them But as a sports fan, those are my favorite two times of the year because you just you get so much as always. Something on theirs. A Giants game on I mean, not tonight, but generally at a Giants game to look forward to. Then the week you get the NFL and the Giants game and it just I I love it, The more the merrier for me. Yeah, totally with you. And you know, it's really fun is obviously when you have the World Series and the at least deputy serious fun, But what's really fun I find is when you have these charities and Sundays where you have You know in the LDS Let's say Game four. If necessary, Okay, you know, and the game four gets played, and then you go Game five on Sunday if necessary, and Game five gets played, and it's opposite to good football games and you're switching back and forth. You got the college games on Saturday, and you have these baseball games mixed in and people are jumping around. I think it is actually a lot of fun. It's awesome. I mean, I love it. I said yesterday, uh, with what you guys and the Dodgers are doing. Isn't this the reason the wild card was made so you wouldn't leave a really good baseball team. At least at least give them a chance to join the big party. The one game we can debate that three, I think is more fair, but the schedule is just not going to allow it. But you know if you get in with, like 87, okay, you got in because of wild card but that you know what I can say. You should have won more games. They deserve a chance. To get in the playoffs. But to me this is the reason it was made. If you have two teams are like 95 wins. Plus this year, Probably 100 wins. Plus would be a damn shame to say to one of them. Sorry, not this year. You bet you bet, And, you know, Exhibit eight to that reasoning for a rationale for sure it was 1993. So when you go, please remember that vividly because it was our first year right as an ownership group and and here comes and I go down to the wire, and it's while it's dramatic, and it's do or die because we have sitting on 103 wins on the last day of the season. Lost and we went home. That's not really fair. I mean, you know, it's Yeah, it turned out boomerang on us, but you know, they changed the rule. And so now you can argue whether the disparities too much between what a wild card faces and what a division champion faces. But I think this year, you know, could be an argument that the disparity is not too much. I mean, the Giants of God, just going to go hard. For the next 22 games. And, uh and you know, And so I mean, there's such a such a big difference. And and you know, that difference is more pronounced now than when they initiated the wild card. If you remember the rule was different This is one game knockout game is something You know you're the big difference between that and having four days off of qualifying for a five game series and opening the first two of them at home. It's absolutely huge. You know, you bring up 93. That was as you mentioned the first year of the ownership group. The new group that took over and I'm just kind of wondering, you know, what were you like in 93? Compared to now? I mean, now you're an old vet. Now you have three rings on your finger. Now you've been you've been three parades going down Market street. Are you difference in this? Uh are you not living and dying with it at the same degree that you guys were maybe 93 if I don't know if you can even remember back how you felt about first thing. You know, Peter and I looked at each other and we want our 103rd game, which was Saturday in L. A, which was 161st game of the season 103rd. We looked at each other and said, This is easily Yeah, I do this every year. Don't sweat. It was our first year. This is easier to the all these studies. No. Well, we only use dummies. You know, it's easy to win 100 3 games. Um, know what it's really It's really interesting to think back on it. And we got our just desserts are come up. It's because as great as 1993 was We think back at the ups and downs in any business, I guess, but especially in professional sports. Then the next year was probably the most sour year of all right, because it was the strike and we've lost the World Series. And so we were two years in to the group was two years in and the first year was this magical year old But we didn't go to the playoffs and didn't go beyond into the World Series so magical by whether very good but better, just thoroughly disappointing at the end of the season. But then 94 was and we were having a good year. If you remember 94 Felipe Alou in Montreal was having a great year, and Matt Williams was What? As I was, you know, sort of the star of the league this year. Yeah, exactly. And it just all came to an abrupt ending. So we got in those first two years. We really got to know a, you know, a just, uh, indication of the volatility of Of what? We're in what we're doing, Uh, what's really cool? I think Larry when you're asking about it is that We started in 93 with 18 partners, really community minded partners that help save the team, and that's grown some sense, but more than half of them are still involved, either. Them personally or the next generation, their sons or daughters. Wow..

"Marty Loury is off today. Our pleasure to welcome in our next guest. John Shea, columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, John Thanks so much for joining us, and last night at Oracle Park, what an atmosphere, probably the best one of the season we've seen from Giants and Dodger fans. Yeah. Good morning. How you guys doing? You know I for the first time all season, I spent my chair and watch the game and thought back to 10, 12 and 14. Because that's the vibe. I got, like the team that wasn't supposed to do anything. Is doing it all. And that's what we did in 10, 12 and 14. You remember they weren't Really favored to win any of those postseason series and you know, especially with the Phillies and 10, and they were going up against all these great teams, and that includes the World Series opponents. But last night, I'll the odds were against them. All the money was with the Dodgers the smart money anyway, Right? Well, it wasn't so smart because Bueller, uh against nine relievers. I mean, who would have fuck it, And it's the same old story, the Giants doing what nobody expects them to do. And they get Bill early and Brandon Belt first pitch home run, And obviously that was a strategy. Just attack them early. And don't let them get deep into the game. And that's exactly what happened. But what a series right? I mean the Friday game with Air buster at first base, The Saturday game obviously the bullpen and showing the flaws because all it takes is one guy that to screw up, and that's what happened in the first inning, three run spot, and that's all the Dodgers needed. And then Sunday was David and Goliath, right? Mm. Good morning, John. How are you today? Thanks for joining us and, you know, let's talk a little bit of Walker Buehler Walker Buehler was so dominant all the way up until yesterday. He is started and went 56 innings every start and I like what you said how the giant hitters were aggressive. They got to him early, and you know he only through 53 pitches 34 for strikes, but I thought where he went wrong. The ball was up a little bit, usually his knee high and it goes out of the zone. Yesterday. It was more thigh high and coming down to the knees, and he got the ball up at different points of the game specially Crawford's double And Duggar got the ball up on the inside pitch. What do you think happened? What do you think he missed that. Do you think it was just trying to be Walker Buehler? I can just do whatever I want. And next thing you know, he was backing up third. Yeah. Back in the third rate it Yeah, he admitted post game that he just, uh it was awful. And, you know, every picture has the right to be awful now and then, and he picked the wrong time because that game was meaningful, not just For momentum, uh, for the Giants heading to Colorado in Chicago, but It meant the Giants won the season series. And what that meant was that these two teams tie Over the regular season and finished 100 and 62 in deadlocks like they were in 51 like they were in 62 when they played best, the three regular season series to determine who won the pennant. Back when there was no expansion in the playoffs. Well, what happens this time? It's there's a one game playoffs. And because the Giants won the world this season, serious, um It will be played in San Francisco. So, uh, loser that would then go to the wild card. So it's like you have you have to. You have to win 21 Game playoffs against two different teams in order to just to get to the Division series. So the winner of that one game playoffs If there is a tie through 1 62 would go straight to the Division series. So that's how important it was. Not that the players knew red carry because we asked Brandon about it. And he said, No, I had no idea. Thanks for telling us. I love that. I love that Brandon Belt set on the postgame zoom. Oh, John. Thanks. I didn't know that Give credit to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle for that one, And he's joining us here and, of course, covered Giants Dodgers this weekend. But John, one of the main reasons We wanted to have you on talking baseball today is to talk Hall of Fame. We got the 2021 induction ceremony for the class of 2020. And, you know, I'm sitting out here at Coors Field overlooking this field. I think the place we have to start is Larry Walker. Because for so many years he wasn't in the Hall of Fame. He had trouble getting inducted because, you know, so many people believe that his numbers were inflated by playing a course field Where you Larry Walker voter, and if so, how did you come down on determining his candidacy? Yeah, I was Larry Walker, her voter. Uh, it's there is a prejudice against players who perform in Colorado. But shoot. He goes back to Montreal. He was Great player on that 94 team that could ever should have won the World Series under Felipe Alou before the players strike canceled the season in mid August and I just think he's a five tool player. I mean, he does. A great base runner is a great defender. Wonderful arm. Um and he is for power. It's for average. There's nothing he couldn't do on a baseball field. And, Yeah, he had some extreme splits. Uh, Mile high Stadium, of course, field versus Road games. I mean, that happens. It's just such a weird dynamic for these guys to go on the road and play the normal brand of baseball. And this is before the human door, so Beyond that, you look at his stats with other teams, and I just thought it was kind of a no brainer. Um and I think maybe would carry him was the modern day thinking of analytics with the on base percentage in the O. P s in the war. And the things that maybe are seen well they are seen with with with the test, but Just looking at the numbers a little bit more. I think the value was even more through the roof. So he waited a long time. And, uh, great for Canada. Joey Votto will be the next John Shea Jones and Kerri and I am talking baseball. Let's not forget about his defense. John, seven Time Gold Glove winner. He was awesome in the Alpha Cannon for an arm and we always talk about the hitting side when you get in the Hall of Fame, But I tell you what I love looking at the defensive side, and Larry Walker definitely put a gold star on his defense. And right fielder with the great Army. You don't see right fielders with great arms so much anymore, And he played it in an era where you wanted to put your best arms in right field and Was on with these hall of Famers the other day. They had conference calls with some writers and and somebody asked him about his best play. And what does he say? He says the play that he thought there were two outs. He catches the ball or runners on base, and he throws it into the crowd to a little kid because I thought that was the third out and then comes back and grabs it and throws it back in. Well, you can't do that. You're playing dead runners advance and he thought that was hilarious, but he made many more great place. But that's the one thing he said. That you remember will be remembered the most like I'm going to have to excuse myself here in a moment ago, catch up with Gabe Kapler in the dugout..

"And there's a bunch here standing all cheering. Here's the 22 pitch to Alonso swinging to drive into left center field. Blanco waiting. He puts it away. And that's a no hitter for 10 months to come. There you go. Group on the col. That is awesome to hear. Obviously, Tim, let's come. This was the game in which he through the 148 pitches. He wasn't having a great year that dropped his area to 4.26. But he struck out 13. He walked four improved to five and nine. Tim Lindsey, come with the no hitter today in 2013. That was his first one. Yeah. On June 25th 2014? Yes, against the plotters and Alonso on the fly out, Not Pete. That's yonder. That's right yonder. Alonso. Yeah, we're going to talk about Pete. The second way yonder, Alonso. So that was a cool one for Lincecum. Just because you know he was struggling and for him to do that, And you look like the tip of old and it didn't matter. I mean, well, it did matter. But I mean, when he was pitching, it was awesome. And So it was cool to see him come back and do that one in front of 40,000 in San Diego. What's kind of funny is the the bike all the no hitters that were thrown number we so many complaints about what are we had six or seven right now, this year in a couple of the combined no hitters in the seventh inning, no hitter from Bumgarner and we were talking where we're going to get to like 15 or 20. No hitters this year, it's going to be crazy, and I sort of thought, man. I feel like no hitters have been going on, You know pretty rapidly for a long time. And maybe it's just because for so long Starting with Jonathan Sanchez in 2000 was that eight or a nine Nine. Mike saying, Oh, no, I can't remember. Anyway, the the Because of like the start of Sanchez, the to Lindsay comes the cane perfect game. And then the Chris has to no hitter just feels like for a long time. The Giants were getting close each and every season or would have one for like, one a year after who was the last one? It was Montefusco through one. Is that right in 1975 or something, and nobody had six? Nobody had one all the way up to Jonathan Sanchez. So anyway, you're right. That was kind of cool for like one more notch until once it comes belt back to back Cy Young. The three World Series two. No hitters is just pretty cool man to add to his ledger. I just remember the the whole conversation we had afterwards and it was like he threw 148 pitches, but it's like, you know. Early in the season. They obviously take guys out combined. No hitter is those kind of things that Cubs did one. Month or so ago. Whatever was before their big slide, but we threw 1 48. Everybody's freaking out like you were saying yesterday. I mean, let's come like, you know, 8 10 pitches. I'm good to go like, you know, no ice. No big deal. I'd rather said to carry Crowley at one point in 2003. When Who was Randy Johnson through the perfect game against the I think he threw it against Atlanta or something like that. The Giants that night We're playing a game in Chicago and Jason Schmidt threw a one hitter and he threw like same thing like 135 137 pitches something crazy, and I'm Remember watching that game thinking all right. Jason Schmidt can get some national love tonight on SportsCenter the performance of the night and you turn around, and there's a perfect game for one of the all time great pitchers Randy Johnson. So no love for Jason Schmidt. But Felipe Alou would do that He'd run guys out there for like 1 31 40 Just let him go. Yeah, absolutely. 1 48. Alright, number two. Peter Alonso, Look, He's a professional home Run Derby hitter. He goes back to back. He hit 35 in the first round. He looked awesome. You know, I needed about 30 seconds to win the final round against Trey Mancini. It was really never in question. For Peter Alonso, But he made a statement after the game. Take a listen to this. I've done this before, and I'm extremely confident my ability to hit the ball out of the yard. I feel like I'm the best power hitting the game and it was on display tonight. So if you win the home run Derby does that make you the best power hitter in baseball? Make sure the best power hitter in the Derby that year? Yeah, for sure. I mean, he's good. I like Alonso. He's awesome. Yeah. 50.

"He didn't take it for granted. Um, and the kind of war off on a lot of his teammates. The Giants had the best record in the National League in the sixties, They only went to one World Series in 62. They had a fabulous steam all the Hall of Famers. Blue Brothers, Gymboree hard. I mean, great pitching, especially with Marche, Elle and Perry. Uh, but the league was so good back then. I mean, ST Louis came at you with a star studded cast the Dodgers. Even the Cubs had Hall of Famers, and they often finished last. So it was a tough league at the times and very tough pitchers. But Willie was always the show. Felipe Alou told me that, um, when the Giants came into a town you always say saw the same headline Willie Mays and company despite all these wonderful players As the surrounding cast. Everyone knew that it was Willie Shell. I'm getting about Willy show, I believe was, Ted Williams said. They made the all starter and for Willie Mays. Yeah, I'm in Denver now for the All Star Game and Tuesday night, we're going to see players in the starting lineup, get their two plate appearances and And move away. We're going to see pitchers throw one inning and one inning only, and that's the way the All Star game has evolved. But when Willie play the game he played at a to win. And B to play all nine innings. I mean, Willie has the most hits an All Star history. 23 the most runs 20. Um, he played in 24 of them and say, Well, how could you do that? He only played 22 years well from from 59 62. In those four years. They play two All Star games a year, and it was it was to benefit. Uh, retired players. In terms of pensions, which weren't very good at all at the time. But you know, Willie showed up, and he learned that the American League had been dominating those All Star games. And Willie said, Uh, let's change that. And you know, he and then you know, his first All Star game was 54 in an air in the following year. In later, Frank Robinson and the National League was quicker to integrate, you know, And then here comes commenting and imagine that outfield that was heat rose supposed to get playing time in that outfield. Um, so anyway, the those those players Took it personal to to win those games and win as much as possible. So Willie was 17 6 and one in the 24 All Star games he played and he if you look at the box score, read the game stories. He pretty much impacted Almost every all Star game. He played it. I mean, there was a time where, uh, you know, he had scored the only runs of the game. He would, uh, you know, get the big hits, he would he would be robbed Ted Williams of a home run. I think it was 55. It's true. A couple of games he played 10 innings. In an all Star game and imagine this. I think it was 1961 when, uh, when, when the winning rally in the 10th inning came this way. Erin Singles, Mays doubles him home and claim any singles to score Maze. Imagine players of that caliber still in the game and the 10th inning nowadays, I mean that That would not happen. But Willie wanted to play every game. And and that was true in the regular season. Um, both ends of doubleheaders, and they played a ton of them at the time. You know, Willie has a record that even Cal Ripken Jr can't match 13 straight seasons, 150 plus games. So in 13 consecutive years, he played 150 or more games and most of that streak during 154 game season, and even Cal Ripken didn't do that. Despite the street he had And that just shows that Willy played all the time and that included all Star games. He just wanted to be there all nine innings and the manager would say, Okay, you're in. In fact, one year 1966 Walter Austin was the manager and there's so many great players on the team. He went to, Williams said, Man, I just don't know how to make this lineup that can you help me? So will he took the lineup card and said, Yeah, okay, I'll lead off and why wouldn't it And then I'm going to hit Clementi second because he can get the ball to right field. Get me the third base and I'm going to hit Hank third because he's got the power. Then after that, he said, Who cares? So so in 1966 Willie Mays drew up the line up another win for the National League and Walter Austin accepted the credit because he was the manager. You know, they have always claimed that you can tell a baseball player The statistics on the back of his baseball card. How is Willie Mays Stack up with the news statistics of the game? Oh, yes. M, uh, have a whole chapter on numbers and how sort of modern day Um, uh, statisticians. Historians look at Willie's career based on Today's system of valuing players, and it's totally different because you know we have O P s. We have war. We have all these stats that We didn't consider back then, and Willie is even more off the charts than the back of his baseball card, which Shell You know, we talk about war wins above replacement. Um, which is a stat that kind of defines Mike Trout, for instance, because he could do it all. And this is an all encompassing stat that but you know ways, players hitting defending base running which Willy if he named his best of the five tools. What's it going to be? I don't know. I mean, his The base running was awesome is hitting was awesome is defending is throwing. I mean, I could name his best tool because they're all they're all pretty good. And you know he didn't have a weakness, so it's like 58 pluses. How to judge his five tools, But so you know Bill James in a letter that Tom Tango and you know Sarah's lot of, uh, Rob Snyder, a lot of people I talked to For this exercise, explained how Willie could have won a lot more than two Most valuable players. Uh, you know, just based on war alone. You look at 1962, and it was just an amazing season for Willie. He took the team on his back and carry them into the playoffs. In September, they had to win a best of three series against the Dodgers. To win dependent and his war was way north of 10. And if you have a 10 war season, that's an amazing year..

He singled in the fifth after the Suarez base it but he was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Buck Rogers was there for a good bit of time as well. That's why I'm thinking I It's gotta be. I'm just going to go with Allah. Okay. Hey, is your guests Answer to Cincinnati Bell trivia question of the game from last night is a Felipe Alou. Down and away. To Adele. Blue manage the Expos from 92 to 2001 and his 691 victories topped the franchises all time list. Wow, That's a long time to manage a team. He's a good manager is really good manager Handsome, great teams. Here's the two Oh pitch great players. Oh, three and oh, weaker way ahead in the count now, but the Reds will show some patients. You can already see Tanner rainy body language. You can see those eyes cutting towards the first base dugout. And when that happens That tells me you're not real confident in what you're trying to do on the mound. Any to the plate three. Oh pitch, and he centers, a fastball. Linker taking all the way it's a strike. 28 year old right hander from Folsom, Louisiana, second round pick of the Reds. Back in 2015 Tana Rainy, went to school at the University of West Alabama. That's in Livingston. Alabama. But what it is is it's in the middle of nowhere. You are right about that. I have made that trip a few times. You drive a good Hour and a half north Get to Tuscaloosa an hour and a half West you get the Meridian, Mississippi, 31 and Winker drives one into left field. It'll fall for a hit in front of the left fielder Schwarber. Wire. This is up to second. The Reds have two on with nobody out in the 8th 3rd hit of the ball game for Jesse Winker..

"Now where I mean, you know. The age, I'd say the one fortunate thing for them in this is that they've made their whole their own slogan for the last few years, the whole rooted in Oakland deal right that they lost the Warriors. They lost the Raiders and the A's. We're going to stay. There were gonna be rooted in Oakland. And now you know, these aren't the ones who were saying, Hey, we're gonna go start looking elsewhere. We're looking in Portland. We're looking at Nashville. This was Major league baseball. So if there's any silver lining for them and said, they're not the ones picking up and saying, Hey, we're leaving town. We want out. They have tried to get a stadium bill. However, I think it's just been a whole lot of putting the cart before the horse here. It's a whole lot of saying things are gonna happen. They made us feel like that Laney College Stadium was gonna get shovels in the ground, and it was nowhere near being being close to that back in 2017. So the ayes have felt for the last few years after Rodman for told him he'd be willing to put pressure on the city of Oakland and on Oakland City Council to help try to pass this stuff or get a stadium built. They had to abandon their their hopes of a Sanders a stadium. The Fremont Stadium went by the wayside, and then they decided they were gonna do this Howard term. Don't think and do the environmental Impact Review or the E I R the report that they've got to do, And so they're still waiting on approval from the City Council to move forward with this like billion dollar Stadium project that would keep the A's in Oakland, But Major League Baseball not convinced this is going to happen, has said it's time for you guys to start coming up with backup plans. It's time to start looking elsewhere. And basically the way I read. This is Major League Baseball's looking at Oakland. They're looking at the fan base. They're looking at the way the A's of drawn fans or lack thereof over the last decade or so. Said that the Oakland Coliseum is just not a place We want to be playing baseball. It's the worst stadium in all of baseball. There's nobody else who shares in a stadium anymore. I don't think I think the A's and the Twins and the Marlins were the last few to be sharing their ballpark with with an NFL team. Obviously the Marlins that their own ballpark Marlins Park is up now or what is it called out like Fed loan, something federal park or something down and I can't remember. Credit Wise Stadium was something down in in Miami and then my aunt and the twins get target field. They moved out of there. There. Don't write the Metrodome. So he is the last one and teams just don't like coming in there. Major League baseball. It's not going to give them an All Star game. They're going to give them you know, events toehold. There's they're not selling out games, and while they've been competitive, it really is one of the more Embarrassing things. One of the big pieces of egg I think on Major League baseball's face that they're looking at. You know when they move the Montreal Expos out of Montreal. They were terrible have been terrible since, like Felipe Alou had been there, right since 94 basically from 94 toe. Oh, six when they moved the Expos out of Montreal. They've been terrible. They played half their games or a quarter of their games down in Puerto Rico because they weren't drawing fans and now baseball so starved to get fit into the ballpark. It Oakland they're actually looking at Montreal is a landing spot for him. Professional baseball team. How crazy is that? Vancouver, Montreal, Nashville, Portland, Vegas Are are the Charlotte. It's the last one of the sites that baseball is looking to get into. I could see them starting an expansion team in Charlotte. Obviously, once the rules change, and they go blank it across the board with his D H. It's gonna happen. She's not a matter of. If it's a matter of when when that happens. They may be able to realign baseball and Jason started. The athletic has written many pieces about this about how you'd realignment. Realign it. Do you do it The way uh, the MBA. Doesn't you do? Three. The NFL doesn't give buys in the first round of the playoffs anyway. That all remains to be seen but Buster only this morning on ESPN, talking about potential spots that the AIDS could land and I think you know people are saying Vegas Gotta go somewhere where they're gonna give you a ballpark, right? That's gotta be the end game plan here. You've got to end up with a ballpark in Portland and pitched this idea to Major league baseball couple of years ago, before any team was even tied. They're saying, Hey, yeah, we'd be We'd be open toe hosting a baseball team here. That would be a great place. They've got rabid fans surrounding the Portland Trail Blazers. They've got good minor league baseball up there. The Giants of a single A team in Eugene. Now they're high. A team the Eugene Emeralds air up there playing single a baseball. Hi. Hey, so There's baseball going on up there in the Northwest. It's just a matter of whether or not Portland would end up with the baseball team. Vegas will be a blast. I'm all about just just cramming more stuff in the Vegas I get to a Raider game first Chance I get this year. Let's hear from Buster Olney on ESPN this morning talking about potential spots and how that search would go for the ace Major League Baseball's Open to Ah lot of possibilities and let's face it. This is Major League Baseball. Uh, trying to get circumstances set for, uh, the expansion of for two teams. But before that happens, they gotta settle The ballpark situations in Tampa Bay and in Oakland and to your point key Major League Baseball formed a blue ribbon panel to study the Oakland ballpark situation. In 2006, right, So we're here now and let's face it these air, not ideal circumstances in terms of putting together a ballpark. Um, you know, in a pandemic world, I would not want to be a politician trying to sell the voters. Hey, we want to give a lot of money to build a development to keep Ah ball team in our area given you know the financial losses around the country. This is the first step for Major League baseball to help the Athletics try to get leverage to force Oakland into a deal for essentially moving to another city. Whether it's Las Vegas, whether it's Nashville, whether it's Portland, Charlotte, attention with Buster only said that this is not just like baseball out of a good of their hearts. And like we got way got to get the A's fans of stadium. We've been trying to do this. We gotta make it happen. No, no, no. They're trying to set this up for expansion. They want two more teams, and they need to balance this out, right. They need to get the A's a new ballpark, and I need to retract something that I said just a minute ago. I said the A's are in the worst stadium in baseball. I forgot about Tampa. Tampa is without question the worst stadium in baseball now The facilities are not as bad I don't think or as older has run down auras..

They're moving up a level this year. Tell you some of the prospects there and talk about single game tickets that went on sale for the Dayton Dragons coming up at 7 36. Red stop from yesterday I was there and I've seen Ah, lot of games in my 54, plus years on planet Earth. Uh, in terms of wild from start to finish. I don't know how many I would put above yesterday's game, 13 to 12 and 10 innings walk off fashion. They answer and Let's remember this team was coming off a seven game losing streak. They go to L. A. Where the expectation was by many they get swept. They beat the Dodgers two out of three. They come home and beat the Cubs two out of three. They follow up the frustration of nobody wanting to swing the bat in the ninth inning on Saturday to follow up with yesterday. A 13 12 walk off win. They were down one to nothing. They lead to the one that it was tied. Then they were down 4 to 2 and it was tied. They were up 6 to 4. Then it was tied. They were up 9 to 6. They were up 12 to 8. Then it was tied, and then they win the game. In 10 innings yesterday. There were 20 half innings, Okay, so each team came up Total of 20 times. At least one run was scored in 12 different half innings yesterday. There were two inning there were two half innings with four runs, scored two half innings with three runs scored and two half innings with at least two runs scored. 25 runs on the day 30 hits 10 Home runs There were 39 players used in the cave yesterday. There were 15 pitchers used in the game yesterday. It cost. The owner is a five hit two home run. What? Four R b? I walk off base hit day, The single comes off Craig Kimbrel against the five man infield. You talk about seeing a little bit of everything yesterday. For the first time in since 1961 for the Reds. There were five home runs in an inning and the Reds didn't even do it in 1961. Joe look up, had tweeted. In fact, I went ahead and sent it to my dad. I said. I remember this game in 1961. The Giants hit five home runs in an inning against the Reds and 61. And again, they led to nothing in the ninth and wind up winning 14 to nothing. Orlando Cepeda and Felipe Alou and Jim Davenport That wasn't inside The Parker and Willie McCovey and Willie Mays all homered in the same inning against the Reds in that game, But the two teams Cubs hit two in the Reds hit three in the fifth inning alone yesterday. We were along the first base line section 1 35. And if you didn't know any better, they were using aluminum bats, metal bats with tennis balls. The ball was just it was like a trampoline effect off the bat yesterday it was insane. You radio Suarez, who entered the game hitting 1 25 had three hits, three hits, hit a home run, I witnessed the catcher trying to steal home. And almost make it in fact, initially made it that on review, it was called out, but it was part of a delayed steel and he comes within. I don't like four ft of home plate, and then he stopped. And then he just like a little kid. He kind of like, drop down and scooted out his legs. It was the funniest thing and burner was like I think it caught Barnard by surprise because he wanted like, reach out in tagging because each time that he does like a little kid feet out, and then he looked like he got in initially and then by review the light Was above home plate, and he did not. He was that that was a huge out because a 10 point, Mallory was still the game. He was still on the ropes at that point, and they ran themselves. The Cubs did out of the inning. It was a game, or TJ Antone entered the game with an area under one. And gave up four runs in an inning in a third and to figure this one out a great thing about baseball and tone and Simms Antonen. Simms pitched two innings, gave up six runs. Embry. Garrett and Hendrix pitched two innings didn't give up a single run. I give you baseball. I still don't get the whole America. Eric comes in pitches to three batters, including an intentional walk. Then David Bell goes to get him. So Ryan Hendricks, a right handed pitcher. Can pitch to the pitcher. Jake area to the Cubs were out of position player I would submit to you. I don't care if it's lefty or righty or not, If, if a mirror Gary, it's at a point in his career where you can't leave him in to pitch to the pitcher. Who was over eight this year in his lifetime 1 63 hitter that we got some things we have to investigate. I know area is it six home runs in his career, But again, David Bell went out and got a mere Garrett. Bringing in a rookie pitcher to pitch to a pitcher. It worked. So who might have pointed out, But it was an unbelievably fun and wild baseball game. My daughter who doesn't go to a whole lot of games. After the five home runs in the inning. They want a couple innings without a home run, and Peyton looked at me and said, Why have they stopped hitting home runs and I was like, Well, they don't happen all the time. And then by the time things got really nuts later in the game, and I've lost track of the ending. This was probably by the eighth inning and everybody's just delirious and she turned to me and said What is happening? I said That is a great question. I have no explanation for what is happening in this game. Right now. Up next. He is going back behind the mic tomorrow for the first time in a long time, minor league baseball is back dating Dragon style. They've moved up a level.

Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert continues to impress

"Game. It doesn't count the standings. But, boy Oh, boy, I watched Friday night the Inter squad on TV, Luis Robert Too long home runs. This guy looks like a monster. It reminds me of Felipe Alou is managing the Expos back in the I want to stay in the mid nineties, and somebody asked him about this young prospect named Vladimir Guerrero. And he had not played in the big leagues yet, and Felicia's answer Wass. When you just look at him, you think superstar and that's almost the same thing you get. When you look at Louie's Robert because time during spring training, you just look at him and he just looks. Like he's going to fill that part of a superstar he has. There's just a GN it factor. And then you watch him play and it solidifies every year. Everything you think about the guy and it's almost reminiscent of like I said what Philippe has said about a young unknown Vladimir Guerrero at the time when he was coming on the market. The White Sox and mean they didn't get him cheaply. It was think $26 million for a guy you don't know if he's going to turn out, but you didn't hear Yankees Dodgers. Cubs, red socks like the ones that have the highest payrolls. Why was that? I know the socks have done a magnificent job getting Cuban players going all way back to Minnie Minoso. Tha Jose of Bray you they've got Moncada. But why were some of the heavyweights not chasing this guy? You know what I wish I had a specific answer for you. I don't have one. But I will say what? You just reiterate what you just said, and amplify on it. The attacks have been a really good job of scouting the Cuban players. Now Moncada was signed by the Red Sox and came in the trade from from Michael Kopeck. But with Michael Kopeck, I should say For sale, but it's just one of those things where the White Sox I think maybe they do their homework better than anyone else. And that's why they were able to get a guy like Louise Robert, because He just looks like the really, really feel He does just looking at him, and then you see him in the box, but it's like, Oh, my God. How good can this guy be? Um You're right. It wasn't cheap. But it wasn't like out of this world money either. And, ah, kudos to the White Sox Foreign office and they're scouting. You know, this is the work of scouts. Thes air, not analytics driven. Data. You define a guy who has never left the island of Cuba, where you don't have a lot of information. This is scouting. And obviously you look, I'm a big proponent of scouting, and I'm a It's frustrating to see how it's being minimalized and Almost extinguished in some places, but there is still a place for scouting. And here's a prime example. We're talking to Pedro Gomez from ESPN. When you look at a team
