"And you know, when Fidel came to power Julio lobo actually thought that he was going to be able to manipulate or handle Fidel and my dad told him he really did. And my dad told him Julio no. Julio told my dad nabia low money hammock. We're going to handle him like a puppet. And my dad saw the writing on the wall. Things were getting a little shaky because of Fidel wanted Julio handle the ministry of sugar. He finally then put in Che Guevara. But my dad put in. He put in the Che Guevara? Yes, he was handling the ministry a while. The ministry of sugar, that's such an oxymoron. Yeah, because they wanted Julio lobo to handle it because obviously Julio was the sugar industry. Him and, you know, some of the other big players in the sugar business was one of them that is now a very wealthy big player in Florida. But my dad saw the writing in the walls. And he said, you know, I'm going for a medical checkup, and he went to Boston. Where he met with his friend, who I called Theo Julius, Julius rosengart, who happened to be the accountant for Meyer lansky. Now, when Meyer lansky was building the Havana Riviera in Cuba, he got some financing from Banco financiero, which was owned by Julio lobo. And my dad and Julius independent of Julius working for Meyer lansky, they just became great friends. And that's when I can interrupted just the second Louis. So Meyer lansky is a known mafioso from the New York City families for those who don't recognize that name. And if you don't know who Che Guevara is, he was a devout communist that was part of the Castro regime, participated with the guava model and communist regime. I believe he's dead now last I heard, is that right? Yes. Che Guevara became popular and anybody that became too popular for the dog got rid of fidela sent him to Bolivia. He said, you know, you're a revolutionary. You're a true revolutionary, you know, does blue smoke up is, you know what? And sent him to Bolivia, and he thought that he was going to be able to do the same thing he did in Cuba and just the bolivians looked at him and he said, you know, what is all this? It wasn't like Cuba. They became proactive, and they got support from the Cuban people. Bolivians were just odd and they sent them into the jungles, sure enough CIA came went down there with rangers, nailed them. Felix Rodriguez, he's one of the guys that comes out in one of the narco series. Having to do something with Kiki camarena that, you know, well, you all know he's right. The DEA agent Felix Rodriguez a Cuban CIA guy was one of the last guys to see check it out. You know, when one of the Bolivian the order was to bring him in, but then they decided to shoot him. Che Guevara, things happen. Going back to Meyer lansky because he was known as the mob's account and he's also was associated with Charles Lucky Luciano. I mean, these were some big name crime family, so during that time, but what you're saying is your dad was never mobbed up like that right. He was a pure straightforward businessman, no mob connections in terms of business. Whatsoever..

"Happens. Crazy here in Cincinnati. But now the Reds one out away from winning it, Vote swings. It's a high drive, great field and deep and this game is going to be tied way out of here. For Steven Vogt. It's 11 to 11. His first Giants home run is a memorable one. He just crank the first pitch from Iglesias and hit a 10 rows deep into the bleachers, 11 to 11 in the ninth inning. Amazing. I guess I hadn't remember that was his first home run as a giant pretty memorable home, run Anything specific? You remember about that night that game Not just that. It was his first game as a San Francisco giant. He grew up a Giants fan. All he wanted to do was play for this team, and he showed up at spring training that year Copes. He was not healthy. He's coming off a season when he had shoulder surgery. He wasn't even sure if his major league career was going to be able to continue. He had to go down Triple A improve himself proved too far hot and the Giants that he was ready to come up to the major league level and contribute. And so it just meant so much to him to be in the dugout that night. I remember talking to him before the game about the emotions he felt. Wearing a Giants uniform, You know, he admired the organization across the bay in Oakland, where he became a fan favorite and so to see him deliver in that moment, uh, first off, there are very few human beings who are as nice in his genuine as Stephen Vogt. And then there were very few major league baseball players who can even come in the same class as him when it comes to human beings and people and so to see him come through In that moment, That's that's a game. I'll never forget on the speed. Honestly, it's a game that he delivered and after the game, he was very emotional in the clubhouse. And for good reason. I mean, he's someone who, after a big loss or after a tough loss, he always said, Hey, writers come to my locker. I'll talk to you about it. If you need quotes. If you need anything, I'll break down the game. I'll stand up for my teammates and to see him do it. After a win like that, where he was the hero. It was really cool. Wow. Well said pretty cool man, and I want to say that series actually ended up being sort of funky was that Is that a Pablo Sandoval? I didn't eat. I want to say he hit a hit a home run through a shutout inning or something like that. He was at the first giant to do that all the base to that was it. It was like the first guy to do it since, like the Christy Mack Chrissy map. Hey, Ben Matthews himself. It was. It was Christy Mathewson home run stolen base and threw a scoreless inning in the same game. Unbelievable stuff, too. And I think Chase d'Arnaud also pitched. That's your It's a great call by you. Chase d'Arnaud dude, the The Matt Duffy family friend he had been. You've been kind of backed up his mentor when they were like teenagers use a little bit older than than the just man. Hey, one more. I want to throw at you just because I think come from behind games at Oracle Park. This is one that always stands out to me. I don't know why it's not like it was a late ballgame, You know, ninth inning, where they had to rally and Come back. I'm going to take you to April 30th Dude 2000 and four What do you remember about a Brian Dalam or Oh, man, Brian Dalam or very little, But I do know that he had one big moment of Giants uniform. Well, Brian Gallimore, at one point had won the Cactus League that entitle him like 5, 20 or something and didn't make the team out of camp like a 29 or 30 year old. The next year, he comes back 2000 and four He's in the minors. The Giants are playing this game against the Florida Marlins at home. I want to say it was a Friday night, maybe a Saturday night in San Francisco. Barry Bonds is in the lineup. Your Victoria, always in the lineup. Kevin Correa, the starting pitcher. Your San Francisco Giants bonds through a bases loaded walk in this game, By the way, our guy Jose Cruz played our guy. Excuse me. This was Davey crews are guys. Scott Air Felix Rodriguez M V P. Vote getter pitched in this ballgame as well. Michael Tucker had a pinch hit. Former Giants bullpen coach Matt Herges made appearance in this game. But the point of this is the Marlins Go forward on the top of the first. Alright then the bottom of the first chance. Put up two runs, okay? They come right back out. They score five more off of Kevin Korea in the second inning. So now you're talking 92. Giants come up bottom of the second. Bonds hits a double. They start rallying a little bit. But then here comes Brian Dalam, or his first big league hit. Off of Dontrelle Willis. And here's what happened. Well, it's to the plate swing.

Michael Tucker Steven Vogt Ben Matthews Stephen Vogt Brian Gallimore Chase d'Arnaud Christy Mathewson Kevin Correa Jose Cruz Matt Herges Cincinnati Dontrelle Willis 29 Friday night Brian Dalam Kevin Korea Oracle Park Florida Marlins Giants 20

"I remember the Kevin Millar M v p, but I don't think I knew that it was Hank. Here we go, 2000 and one uh Felix Rodriguez, your San Francisco Giants a nine and one record a 1.68 e R A. He threw 80 games that year for Dusty Baker. He started third. Actually, sorry, Finished. 13 of these games did not record a save on the season In 80 innings, he recorded 91 strikeouts to just 27 walks. He finished 20th in M V P. Voting. That's that made. That essentially means he got 1/10 place. Are we going to assume it was bag early here as well? If he was going to hear me as one bag early doing it now he didn't come up until today. 1004. He was still on the angels are just tearing out bag early on The podcast, however, can be are bad bags, My guy, my dad and I love, but I think Henri Schoeman would have been eligible in 2001. So it could have been him. Could have been. Peters could have been could have been a number of different people from the Bay Area. I would love to go back through the archives and find out who gave Felix Rodriguez that envy people. Because those matter to these players, this matter a lot. This is the fantastic note here as he got he got, Uh, it says Vote points four. So what? What place would that be? So I think Someone either. He may have gotten 4/10 place votes or like to ninth place votes. Something like that. You got a few votes, so he finished combination finished right behind Paula Duca and right ahead of Phil Nevin. An M V P voting in 2000 and one I love doing this. Do you get the forever giant label If you coach for the giant? I don't give Phil Nevin that also because he was such it was a padre. For such a long time to me. He and Bruce Bochy were like tethered at the hip. Like Brian Question. Giles, Brian's and just see. But Charles Giles was there beyond both. I think, too, but I think Boje and I tie him to Ryan Klesko and Phil Never. I know cluster was a brave for a long time, but for me as a kid, he was he was a padre. He was just one of those guys that played first base and he played outfield. I told you the classic Obuchi story, right? Give me the Klesko boat. So we're in Atlanta a few years ago, and the The Braves have like Ryan Klesko there. It's supposed to be. Ryan Klesko date. Bruce Bo. She doesn't know this. Ryan Klesko gets tickets to the game from Bruce Bochy like gets tickets from Boetsch. This is Giants Braves in Atlanta, Atlanta. Okay, so both leaves and tickets. He's hanging out by the dugout hanging out by, you know, the batting shell and batting practice. And both thinks he's there is like you know, his guess He just came in both just like, Hey, you came to see me hanging out. I managed you thinning Bush looks up. They've got Klesko like perched atop the stadium, leading the Tomahawk. Chop it a Braves jersey vote. Just thinking what's the matter with you? I got you here that you turned on me. And you're leading the tomahawk chop. By the way you played for the Giants to. I mean, like you were out here when both first got here. Unbelievable stuff, too. So he's leaving the chop. Why didn't you just take the tickets at the Braves? We're going to get I don't know. Still it confounded Bruce Rogers. You laughed about it for weeks after the hell of a troll job. Hell of a troll job, so just real quick back to 2000 and one so you'll always remember the M V P of a 1 73 home runs. Yes, Barry Bonds, of course. But there's a trivia question in 1 2003 Giants finished in the top 20 in M V P. Voting, which is a great trivia note considering Jeff Kent had won the M V P The year before in 2000 and did not finish in the top 20. It's Barry Bonds at one. It's Richard really down here at number 12 and it's Felix Rodriguez. Amazing number 27 on a good note back real quickly here back to, uh to our guy Brandon Crawford M v P Vote getter like Is that going to happen this year? I don't know. We're gonna have to have the discussion. We can continue it on the other side about what the Giants do about him. If this trend continues, I don't know that he's going to. He's going to be the best shortstop in baseball for all season long, but back to Andy Bag early, who had a great quote. Four weeks ago. This was maybe a week and a half ago, he said. If you were somebody who had never watch baseball and just woke up and discovered baseball and decided I'm going to check out the San Francisco Giants And you watch the last two weeks of baseball. You would think that Brandon Crawford was the best player on the planet like Hall of Fame without question. That guy is the best player in baseball. So what are the Giants going to do with him next season when it's time to to hit free agency? Fascinating, fascinating question. Remember, he had this hot 2018, but we should get to that on the other side. Yeah, that's a topical approach on the other side, as well as the sound survey segment, which will include some stuff from slinging Sammy along with almost slinging slinging. Sammy Murphy was going with sudden, Sammy Long seconds. Very 19 twenties. I suck. Sam. Sudden, Sam gets on your quick all of a sudden, you know what I mean? It's that crossfire, released from the left side haven't seen it since Christy Mathewson from the right side. We're gonna take a quick break, and after that, we'll get right into some of that sound survey the sudden sound survey..

"Here's to another great season of Giants baseball and the power to swing for the Bay Bank of America, the official bank at the San Francisco Giants. Okay. Postgame wrap Part two. We're picking players of the game. I get to lead us off. And since I get to lead us off, I'm taking the guy who led off the game with a home run. Mike extreme ski through two more walks, another home run. He made a great diving catch early in the game when ah Trevor Cahill was a little wobbly, helped his pitcher get through a jam. And he just continues to do 10 things a day to help the Giants win games play well. Michael. So when you lead off the game, that's not bad luck. It's only on the first pitch. As I said before landed, Mike, this is good luck. Just I'm confused by all these, you know whats whats bad luck? What's not We had enough bad luck in Anaheim. So this was good luck. It wasn't on the first pitch of the game, so he was fine. I think giving up a home run in the last pitch of the game. Very bad luck. That's bad luck. Mikey Ostrovsky. He's my guy. Thanks, but we can pick him every every single game. You know, He's just so good that I'm gonna take wanted Peralta. Who needed some love. Look, his last outing Sunday was just ugly. I mean, he faced five guys you gave up for his walk. They all scored. He comes into this game today is your raise of the nines and And he needs to get back into the into that mode of confidence. So what's he do? First guy up ground ball to Crawford Air? Okay. All right. The guy who never makes there's especially with his arm. Then the next guy happy hits. And it's all starting unravel right here. And we're starting to think evil thoughts. It's a 61 ball game at the time. And he gets a one to count and he throws a ball down in gets a ground ball double play, and he managed to get out of the inning. He pushed through an air and they gave us some confidence back. So I'm taking Wandy Peralta. They need him. They needed confidence. And hopefully today got some of back. I'm taking him because he put a zero up in some ways. I mean, Burger and Selma bitch. Clean innings are mostly clean innings and kind of just breeze through in some ways that your right toe single that out just because of the way the whole thing started. And the psychology of this is this stretch for the Giants. A good pick wanted Peralta could pick a job like Kay Pu, you got Trevor Cahill just for being Calm influence out there. He just looked good. So I'm taking Katie. It looks like a guy I grew up in Ocean side. Just kind of beach. You know, Surfer attitude out there. Your ball, who All these occurred today. Good curve. You know, I've seen you looking. He hasn't given a penny runs all the way to give up one toe. Let Stella but Babel's Stella now anyway, Gael, you did a good job. Good pick. John who you got very good. And well, I'm gonna go with Pablo. I mean, hit that one. I remember years ago. When the Felix Rodriguez was with the Giants, and he was pumping in 97 Mile an hour fastballs. And he was facing Ah Eric Caress at Dodger Stadium and he threw a ball up there and caress hit a homerun at Dodger Stadium left center. On a ball up in his eyes, which did just didn't seem possible. And the And then when Pablo does it, it's like, Oh, Pablo, Are you kidding? He did that again, so, but they needed. It was one the one that got that run in the first and then the Angels immediately got it back. On the steles home and then Pablo boom and I mean, Dylan Bundy could he couldn't believe it. Somebody's like He couldn't say. Wow, I made a bad pitch. Dog gone it or somebody didn't make a catcher. I was up in his eyes or you kill me and he hit it out of the park. It means just like Oh, my God. So you know, publicity's together could go up there saying I was looking for it up there. You'd have believed him. Well, I'm sure he'll be looking for it again. At some point, so anyway, Paolo that put him ahead and they never look back from their so problems. My guy, you know, and he later had an R B. I The double was even more impressive. I thought because It was balled away, and he just had a bullet into the gap in left center to knock in a run soon. Awesome problem. Look like Pablo today. I like good pick up. Yeah, that was a two sie fastball away with the upset gap with backspin. He's locked in. It's good to see you. And then the player we give credit to for stellar performance. I'm gonna give it to Crawford. He made that error. But he's swinging the bat so much better, and he had two nice doubles. Drove in from runs started a couple of big double play Did he played solid defense other than the one throwing hey, almost never makes throwing mistakes ever. It seems like all of his errors, you know, make some every once in a while. He drops a ball in a transition or kicks with a ground ball, but never seems to make throwing here. I was thinking about this the other day. And, you know, I bet he's got one of the best. Arms. Of any sport to come out of California in its history. That's how good his arm has been. You just combined strength, accuracy, reliability, all.

"We we publicized and advertise it a lot, and they're they're great videos for any kind of player coach, family member. They're great drills. We We have over 34 videos up there and the pros this week. We put him on a reduce price. So go on Bigley, coach and dot pro. Take a look at him and And take a look at some of these videos. They're 45 minute videos. I had a friend of my look at one he goes. It's like a baseball movie and I go. It's really good because their power points really good discussion. There's a lot of drills in him. But thanks for bringing that up, Rick, and it's a big league coach and dot pro. I I, You know, I can appreciate that. We used to have discussions on where your wrists are when you actually made contact with the ball. And now you knuckles returned. I mean, that's instead of watching that video. You know, we'd watch hitting videos. They deliver the college baseball coach so I can appreciate what you guys are doing, you know? Ah, Billy Ripken and some of these guys on MLB network. I picked something up from Harold males in those days. All the time, and I've been around the game, a number of very job. They really do a good job of that, and they teach, And that's what all these videos are there teaching instruction and they're telling you Different things about pitching, hitting fielding different drills. Brian Harper does drills for catchers and we talked about setting up hitter's Mark Davis and I did a whole class and setting up hitter's what you look for an and different counts different situations. The mental game. They're just good videos. That's why we threw him up there. We want people to look at him and read him and hear him and see him and watch him over and the money part. We cut the price just so people will follow baseball a little bit more where we want to bring baseball back and a lot of these kids that Are playing video games. Get him out. Look at these videos. You can do so many of these drills in your backyard. In the past, they always into. My other thing is, I think major baseball kind of missing the boat here. Everybody started catch back up to now within Ba going and Ah, they had a captive audience for a couple weeks where they could have played day games. I am I wondered. Am Yep. You have a captive audience. And they should have been just kind of rotating the games. So you had some in the midday and then some of the early evening and it's summat night. I I really think that I think they missed the boat there that could have been so much more baseball watched. When we didn't have live sports except for auto racing, and some golf and baseball came into it in July, and they should. It has captivated the audience, and they just weren't ready for it with the two heads battling it out with each other. The owners and the players instead of, you know, make amends and get the game going and they could have played more games in 62 I agree with you. They had an opportunity to open it up more. You're a touchdown. Brian Harper. I believe he was born in Orland, California, which is a family run information. Yeah. Go ahead. I I You know, I was dining on on Ah old capital thing. I have to agree with most everybody's called tonight. It's very, very frustrating. He's like micromanaging. Nobody can get comfortable as far as a player. You know better than we do. Yu guys are creatures of habit. You like to know when you got to get up and hump it up T go in, and I just I don't think I think there's more dissension that dug out that we know what's going on. I think there's more confusion and we see that the older players, the veteran players, and I keep talking about Belton Crawford that just there's not into it, their confidences. They're not playing and it just isn't it's not clicking cross. Just awesome Defender. You saw him make some great place their ball out in left center over his shoulder was fantastic. Just not hitting the ball like we know Croc can and belt. I'm waiting for him to slam a couple home runs. He had one in Colorado three run blast, but a lot of offers here in L A. But Rick. Thanks for the call. Appreciate your time. Have a nice night on a Sunday. All right, Brian, let's talk to Brian and Tempe, Arizona. Nice and hot down there. Bryant down here started doing perspective. I'm doing really well. I have a different perspective. You know that money ball thing. It costs a lot of her. It doesn't cost a lot of money, and we've seen that work for smaller teams. Small market team and you You get the idea that what happens if a big market teams like like the diet had that kind of program in place? The possibilities are endless. But and it's a gamble. But it's a gamble with house money I grew up with and you know, watching Felix Rodriguez. He inferred one in too long and And all of a sudden this kid with long hair started throwing gas. And next thing you know my team champion, and then they do it two more times that buy the whole lot of patients for made with these guys, and I also think Make it a bummer. I think One thing that we haven't mentioned about veterans in this season. So this whole Kobe thing is a lot different prepared, then it is for the young guy. Until of course apologised. I'm an apologist for these guys, but you know I'm going to be patient and I think it's great that they're given them the dignity. Could still be in the lineup, and they're not what they were..

"On a and B. R. six sports leader supported our football talked about but I'll answer the trivia question we give you Chad Serbia blast from the past he was the last giant to get both a win and an RBI in a game as a relief pitcher the question I asked as to the last giant to drive it chat last night reliever to drive in more than one run with a hidden again the answer Felix Rodriguez yeah that's the try to re use the the home run allowed stats PZ I know I'm Repin stab off old wounds back in two thousand in nineteen ninety nine when he was first out of the scene was for ninety seven ninety eighty was bowed cedar asset bubble choose dusty's guy in that anything I just would probably not bode she's guy says about you with the Padres back then June fifteenth nineteen ninety nine hit a double that scored Brent mainly catcher member Brent Mayne and JT snow that was the last chance really really attracted more than one guy with a hit me game Felix Rodriguez I let's talk a little forty niner football seventy nine win if you're keeping track at home about records and scores in the pre season I'll tell you what I had a little OJ complex what I'm watching the game get to the first quarter it's looking pretty good get into the second quarter like okay third quarter be honest I don't know most of these gaps in sat up slowly unknown half these guys are and how much of that attention you pay to that especially when you have long Korea I hidden bombs you had some Marcia winning ball games and San Francisco forty Niners will go Catholic township and not thrilled with how everything went down with the shocking news I think or the the alarming news for everybody comes during the broadcast on Saturday were is it starts trickling through the stadium down at Levi's it starts making waves on Twitter and that's a John legend ounces Trent Taylor who is has grown a reporter they believe with Jimmy to rob Lowe who this is a fantastic in practice and in training camp so far this season I sounds like he's gonna miss some time because they find he's got a micro fracture in his foot the winner on Friday put some screws in sounds to me like this is similar to I I mean I'm no doctor night sounds to me like this a similar type of surgery Madison Bumgarner add on his hand him a little hat a little bones in your hands and your feet the metacarpals in metatarsals one gets bumped or cracked or moved out of place I think it he'll funky and so they opted just go and have the surgery hello Shannon did give it injury update here is talking about he's injured wide receiver Trent Taylor how are you expecting to be on I or were hoping for week one not counting on it but open for week one off guard yeah definitely in him also you know this is having a hell of a camp and those disappointing to hear but fortunately Hey it's will be the year as and I think that's about four weeks from week one issues of four six week injury soul sale goes I would be surprised if he's there week one of the issue that this causes is he he throw a guy on IR and I and I don't think they will then he you're the short season he's not eligible to we take and that is to have a bye week in that span but I just don't see them doing that with Trent Taylor the other problem here is you get to decide which of these receivers are gonna hold on to I mean you figure a guy like Trenton was absolutely going to make the team and you're dealing with guys like de Los Santos gonna make the change I want her to make it I then you you're looking at other dudes Kendrick born you would hope makes it they're saying he's got some of the strongest hands on the team I dont to Paris to what I believe was in the game and and was only targeted one time looking for him to step up and make some plays but they were talking about these other young guys and of course the veteran Jordan Matthews out how do you make the decision on this receiving corps with the injuries around it and with the instability of being that you bring in a couple of young guys try to shake stuff up to try to help you out I thought people would pretty good especially on that that he had to catch it on the four targets the long forty five yard catch is fantastic and then J. one heard this guy's a bulldog you took that time slot as in a bowl over a bunch of people arbiter talk and strong as it is on the team or there's a jailer heard and and Kendrick born he's been a big target for them in the red zone at least throughout training camp how she managed to talking about different Taylor injury still saying he feels lucky that the caller is early as they did you play through this thing more it could end up being a bigger injury and then you're you're out for a bigger stretch of time throughout the season personally I think this thing is a gut punch you want to die with reporting cohesion with Jimmy Rapallo we see should be ready to go next week but they should have just following up the comments on trying to we're lucky we got it was just a stress fracture and usually when you go with that for a little bit and it's breaking a being a lot worse he's complain about a little pain and so we got the X. rays all of fracture in there and then you got to make the decision whether you just want to go with that and rescued told breaks we decided to do it now so could be more of a four to six week injury instead of a eight to ten weeks yeah so get out of the the catch in Holland and they do what they can and the hope you know I love this through and we hope he's back week one well yeah you hope everybody's healthy week one but this also plays to the web the reason why she answered last week I prefer to have no pre season games are rather eat at best he wants to but he says that rather of snow and then for you all want to get guys in and and get I take a look at guys who are trying to make the team and then you want to take a look at some of your vets and see if you guys can knock the dust off of the rust off I need to get going with a with regular season football if I'm to come within one element where I was fairly search sided but what if I was happy with an element of the game on Saturday forty Niners defense because you will get a look at some of these guys drink green law does an incredible story he was out there had a huge tackle for loss wrapped of six tackles in the game Marshall Harris factor was six tackles this other kid Aziz al share who signed as an undrafted free agent seems like he's gonna be a monster could make the team they've been doing a pretty good job I think defining these linebackers it's the defensive lineman they've had trouble with assorted fours bunker and now you're hoping on it both says another hit for them but the evaluation of at least the linebacking corps for the most part as far as I can see from our sit is been pretty darn good over the last couple years I see for maybe the Reuben foster draft pick Fred warranted one allies lease been pretty damn good I know of course you get very green law and manual mostly the same kind of course you will further back back there pointed DB but share I think is going to be a a good element for them this season could make the team as well I think that I'd be a I I'm not sure he slips through the practice squad these are like away for so we'll see how that plays out but as far as the defense goes you guitar various more back there who could end up being if if Jimmy words not able to go in rarely you see everything flies around like a missile out there are very is more I think he's done a great job playing free safety you get good reports from him that the speed is there he's played a little bit better but that P. I call the one of the in a game it's a little frustrating for people these are easily growing pains you go through but he may have passed Adrian Colbert on the on the depth chart Colbert's seems to me like a guy who you can beat into stuff that happened a lot last year thinking back to that that cardinal game the Christian Kirk play where he's the lone over the top safety and any bites on a diet really and then Christian Kirk beat some deep Josh Rosen front touchdowns get she did not feel good here's CNN talking about server is more the play of the passenger interference play the one that probably pissed him off the most put numbers more in general is in play pretty well from what I saw he looked it looked good I'm as some fine around us all make if you place and see the tape that that penalty at the end I thought was very unnecessary I mean just to give that she fifteen I'll see you on the tape of when I saw it and how to do that but you know we played a lot of guys and I we got we're listed a lot of starters so those guys on the back of human fairly early and got to play a lot more the specialist in colder in that game a way to keep those guys out there a little bit longer so it's always good to do as long as you get to a healthy home for a lot of tape to watch and says see with them tomorrow seven oh seven on the cash pretax line in regards to the offense of talking about the wide receiving course in a mansion with her and do a similar gonna be some bullies out there I'm on board with that and I'm I'm to be honest with you I'm excited to see what the running game is able to bring to people still talk about Jared McCann and I've got your computer at the very back to my mind this guy's not a factor to me almost whatsoever based on the success that I understand with the running game last year with Matt breeder Jeff Wilson where he Moster I imagine those guys are also factors you put that with Alex having Coleman who had eight hundred rushing yards last year averaged four point eight yards a carry you go back to his time with with tile in in Atlanta averaging four point four yards a carry first career this guy who fits in this offense and knows the team well or knows this system well I think the running game gonna be exceptional for them if you got does you can catch the ball out of the backfield can open a passing lanes for guys like J. winner diva Samuel I'm ninety five the caster day sciences are a patron Taylor's nighter career I think the question I have is who's going to step up and be the number one Dante penicillin slot in there on the depth chart but he's had an up and down training camp by all accounts that he's had good days he's got bad days and seven some rough ones I I different times you're so cal Shannon talking about we put him in the game so he's got one target did not catch a ball should hit on Dante Pattison why he played ons because I want to compete and we're trying to figure out or starting receivers are and I wanted to get it and the chance to get out there and we decided before the game that we were gonna sit marquees and while we were gonna center in Taylor turn it up get hurt so we had to do that anyways but on now everyone else away we one of the find out more about Dante's got a lot of room to grow you can still get a lot better and so can a lot of other guys yeah I like put him out there I like say name and you don't have a job guaranteed here another not gonna cut him he's a talented receiver but he's ease slight Anne's area of sort of a what what you the interview we did with mark Wheeler last week seems like a very nice guy I'm easy guy to talk to but I'm looking for a little aggressiveness I'm looking for a guy like de Boer J. wondered who appears to have a jailer does that F. you and when he's going to grab a football it's what Madison Bumgarner has when he's on the mound it's what it's with some of these these smaller linebackers have when they get into the backfield you want a guy.

"Our law with Anne Jacobson. We'll take your calls as we talk about. Our work surprise kill vanish the secret history of CIA pure military, armies operators in essence at his website is her name linked up at coast to coast, AM dot com. And what about the possibility of other countries like Russia, like China doing the same thing where these assassins are everywhere are they doing it to me? I mean, look no further than Russia. My goodness have everyone famous big cases usually with poisons Vanco. And of course, recently the Paul attack. So Russia leads the world in Athens, and they have a long history of doing this. I tell the story going back to nineteen fifty that. I thought was super interesting, and I chose threaded in the narrative because one of their assassins defected to the United States. So we learned an extraordinary amount. Mount about the Russian programs from that on that defector interesting. I had a guest on last night. Chris Newby who was talking about our work bitten about Lyme disease and how it's biological warfare. But she was very complimentary about you any. That's heart. Do you know her? But I can't wait to I can't wait to read her book. I know about her book because I believe if I'm not mistaken, she was able to get some really cool new information on the Nasi scientists involved in the program. Absolutely. So this program continues. What do you think the reaction is from the CIA to your book? You know, George, I think that. See I is aware of what people tell journalists. I mean, I'm being pretty candidate here. But I'm also being speculative. Do you think they welcome it, or do you think they go crazy? I am. And I'm I'm guessing here, but it's late at night. And we're talking I have a feeling that there is a. There is information that they want out they want all of it out. I don't know. But I think that if you look at the other end of the spectrum the stuff that that that must not be known isn't now have you ever been approached? I have not, but have you ever been approached by someone in government in some clandestine operation who said Anne, we need to leak this out. The we can't do it in conventional media ways put it in a book or do this or do that has that ever happened to you know? I'm often accused of that, you know, I've had people at my book signing stand up and say, you're. Really? Did they disrupt you? Oh, my goodness mine. I love book signing that reason. They're wonderful. They're lively events. But because I've written about such controversial things as Nazis area, fifty one and psychic. I mean, my book signings are populated by people who take stuff seriously, the people who take it way too seriously. If that makes any sense, you know, get it off it, you know, the other end of the spectrum. An extraordinary amount of foia. Right. Freedom of information act. Sure. I, you know, whatever every branch of government NSA Pentagon. You know, see I all of them and the ones that come back from the Pentagon always have a feeling of extrordinary amounts of bureaucracy attached to them, right? And the ones that come from the CIA have a feeling of there's a human behind, and they're they're getting things done without a bureau bureaucratic, you know, disruption, and yes, and someone wants said to me this, and it kind of it was very spooky. They said Anne, do you ever wonder why the C I releases certain bits of information to you? And that made me question on your on your question to major which is like that made me wonder why why is it the I letting me know somethings? Like, for example, you know, my books are nominee was was about psychics. A lot of guys who've been on your show. Programs super interesting, I filed a foia. Usually, my foyer come back from the CIA, or let's say ten twenty thirty pages long, if I'm lucky right thousand pages. Well, what for example, any made? Billy Wong talk to you. Why didn't he simply say I'm sorry. I can't say anything, you know, what I tried to get Billy water talk to me for several years and always had. No. And then he said, wait a minute. Are you the lady who wrote area fifty one? And I said, yes, I am. And he said, oh, I love that book. I'll be happy to talk to you. In Florida, and I did on his own. Do you think he had to get clearance? I don't think. So. I mean, I okay, I write in the buck once CIA always a CIA. I actually say that he retired at eighty two or maybe not because I went with Billy WADA, Cuba. Okay. So one of the things we did was visit the some of some of the people that fascinating. So we went to when we went Billy while, and I traveled to Vietnam and sat there with general Giap son and his and his nineties for the book the book, I write about it in the end of the book, right? Always stick myself in the very end of the book. So you see, I'm a human resources are human. This is real stuff. Right. But the other place we went was meant to Cuba. Why? Well, CIA kill Checa Vara. I mean, I interview Felix Rodriguez. He was in charge of the program. We didn't kill him like gun to the head the Bolivia in Rangers did that. But they were trained by the I A and Felix Rodriguez was there when that happened at he talked about him I book so we went to. Cuba, as a guest of you're not gonna believe it or Nesta Guevara cheese. Wow. How old is he? Now, he might fifty one and Billy and our Nesto and a couple of other guys we were with when I told you about halo jumping jumping out of a parachute. And pulling the cord with. That's what they did. And I thought to myself on that on that quote, unquote. Visit I thought is some kind of mission, and I really had to wonder, and I write more about it in the book. I don't wanna give it away. But it really made you think, you know, because we were doing things, you know, scuba diving and jumping out of airplanes are called infiltration and XL trae shin techniques, and that's what we were doing. And I thought what's really going on here? Interesting. Let's go to the phones Christians with us in San Pedro, California to get things started. Hello Christian Georgian. He anti I- heavier book, the one you did on upper ration- paper clip. I was wondering have you. Are you familiar with in, of course in all of? Stones film JFK actor Donald Sutherland played him. He was known as you know, men acts than men actually a life is L Fletcher Prouty l Fletcher Prouty came out with two books. I was the secret team in nineteen seventy three. And then he followed that up. I'm teen years later after JFK came out his second book was JFK the CIA Vietnam. Plus was John Kennedy? I'm leading the secret team right now any you really if you if you're not so million with you should become familiar with Fleischer. Pouty? You can, you know, watch him on YouTube, and in some of his discussions that he's he's giving lectures. And also I highly recommend you read the book, especially the secret team. And my my opinion about the whole CIA is look I'm sure that a lot of good people like the FBI, very patriotic. And they're doing their duty. But. You know, because of a lot of screw ups and CIA's past is never very questionable, especially the bay of pigs fiasco, you know, failure to you know, nine eleven to connect the dots. You know? Yeah. I let me let me just ended. This. I think that is husband former president Harry Truman who created the CIA and signed the CIA into insistence with an signing of a national security action. Memorandum and nineteen forty seven. After J facination in a newspaper article in December of sixty three. He he really hit a lot of second thoughts about creating the second the CIA thing. What what what did I sign into what what did I create by the stroke of a pin, a hydra an organization, it's it's gone beyond. It's it's it's constitutional limits. But anyway, like, I said, you understand your own further knowledge and research, l Fletcher Prouty, and you called the secret team in I highly recommend that you look into him in his background and keep anymore books. Okay. Thank you so much. Are you familiar with that guys work at all Fletcher, actually, quote him in surprise, kill vanish, some very interesting things to say about what happened before JFK was assassinated? There's an incredible moment in history. Where JFK was so furious with the bay of pigs because it embarrassed him, I one that was underway. With is. Our Nixon that administration. Yes, they planned it. But they didn't stop it. It happens. It embarrasses him. And he's so furious with the CIA that he flipped the paramilitary capacity, which belong to the CIA before then flipped it over to the Pentagon, and he gave them thority. And that's why Vietnam started as a paramilitary operation. But instead of the CIA doing it was the defense department, and they had an extraordinary amount of resources behind them. You know, we talked earlier about how small to CIA how they use a small footprint. Well, the the depend and that and I write in the book about the strawberry impact that Adam the Vietnam war didn't Kennedy though, also failed to provide air support in the bay of pigs. Yes, he did. But he was caught between a rock and a hard place because. Castro made a brilliant move by having his one of his diplomats call up the United Nations and say the US is attacking us, which we were and it put Kennedy and his position he couldn't then those who couldn't support them. No, he was stuck. And he was very, and it's very interesting because I report letter I found in the national archives where chega Vara personally, thank JFK for the bay of pigs. He says to him and I'm paraphrasing. You turned us from a country. Nobody knew about to. World state what happened between shea and Castro. They had some kind of fallout than they at the end. They did have a falling out. And it's very interesting in the book because well, first of all, the we wanna see I wanna J dead was because he was pro nuclear war. He wanted nuclear weapons to be involved in that, you know, that makes made him very dangerous way too close to Florida. And but he he spoke publicly about that. But what happened between Castro and chase that began to realize were things that he was very wise about and, but he was also extraordinarily violent and militaristic and had no problem killing people with his own hands. You know, anyone who betrayed him? He killed I right about that. Yep. That was it. He was serious about that. But he started to speak out against the Russians against Moscow saying these guys are full of you know, what you know, these guys are just as bad as the Americans. They're just a big corrupt machine are. Biggest problem was we got into bed with with with Batista. Yeah. And you know, this guy was involved with the mob. I mean, all the gambling casinos and stuff. He was skimming. He was he was out of touch with the Cuban people. But so the revolution. I think was understandable to get Batista out. But then they got they turned even worse. I mean, that's where I think yours that expression comes from. He's a bad guy. But he's our bad guys -actly exactly next up dictators over and over and over again, let's go to dick in Kalamazoo Michigan. Hello deco head, sir. Hi, I love you tonight. Thank you. It's a lot of stuff that I studied. And I know about great talking about the picks..

"Mitch wise and Kevin Mauer are the authors. Kevin is here. Kevin very good evening to you on the brand of DCA. It's flown by way of Panama City, Lima, Peru. And now as landing in La Paz Bolivia is a man name Felix Rodriguez and his colleague Gustavo, the Lodo who are they? And why have they flown Bolivia? Well, thanks for having me. I appreciate it. Well, Felix as you pointed out, the beginning is sort of one of our main protagonists, and he and Gustavo were tapped by the US government are there Cuban exiles whether you're urban to fly to Bolivia and help to Bolivia track down Che Guevara? And the reason why they got not Americans is because at the time the warned Vietnam was bogging down troops. And there was a real aversion to sending more American troops into a foreign war. So did they were a policy that banned American soldiers from going into what they call the red zone, which is the area in Bolivia where the guerrillas rob writing. So to get around that the CIA hired these two Cuban exiles to do it. And therefore since they're not American citizens. They are able to go into the red zone. The head of the CIA station in Bolivia at the time is John Tilton. Now he knows Rodriguez and the lull dove by their pseudonyms their nom-de-guerre Rodriguez has called Felix Ramos. Medina and Vallejo has called Edwato Gonzales, they are Cubans. And they're veterans of the twenty five oh, six brigade. What is that? Kevin the twenty five or six brigade or the Cuban exiles that were trained and initially backed considerably by the American government to invade Cuba during the bay of pigs there also the same guys that were left behind by the American government on the beach when nothing went south. So they wouldn't they return from that operation post Gustavo, and and Felix were were old hands with the CIA in Miami working all the little operations in an anti-castro operations. They were running there. And they knew Guevarra was he's an Argentine. He's not a Cuban and they knew him, and they knew his reputation and they condemn completely. They want him caught. They want him dead volcano in particular. What is it about Che Guevara and his conduct with Castro that made them disdain him so much. Well, I mean. Changle various is arguably if not well, he's one a on the list of folks to the Cuban exiles hate the most mostly because he has a very interesting history. He gets a lot of credit for being what people believe is this liberator of the oppressed in insane up for the for the people, but his track record really doesn't support it especially after the revolution in Cuba. He really became an executioner. He ran a prison named LA Cabana, and he had a really harsh reputation of of taking care of opposition to the revolution. So that's what the Cubans. Remember is is a guy who was an execution in a prison. Warden and gets volda remembers him, particularly because his father had been confronted by shea. Personally. This is during the revolution in nineteen Fifty-nine, February fifty nine and his father had been given a choice either kill yourself, or we'll kill your sons and his father had committed suicide. So this is personal with the logo. And personal with Rodriguez because he'd been part of twenty five zero six at the bay of pigs the Kennedy administration, this is five years later, and these men have recovered to the point are they I officers are. They cut outs. Are they CIA payroll at this time Kevin there? I think there's sort of contractors at this point Felix on having a lustrous career with the CIA later after this. But at this point, I think they were sort of they were on the payroll that they weren't I wouldn't consider them officers. I wouldn't consider them staff at this one. And they when they fly into lapaz do believe the chairs there, they have accepted all the rumors. As fact and they're going to now hunting. Let's go back to the early days of the spring of sixty seven who is president Generale Rene Barrientos are tuna who does the who is he at the time. And what part does he play on this? Well, this was the president of Bolivia a former air force general took over and a coup was real. Elected. And you know, he he's got a very checkered history as well. But he was very popular with the the native American population. There. And then also he was also very popular with some of the peasants campesinos because of some land reforms that he's government had had done years before. So he's the president. You know, he's allowed American president. But you know, there's a lot of debate about how good he wasn't how wasn't but at that point. He was a staunch anti-communist. He was an ally of the United States and the United States was looking for allies in Latin America because it was in a contest with Cuba that it was then backed by the Soviets, and so this is very much a Cold War story. Even though we're in La Paz. Oh, yeah. This is ground zero of the Cold War. This is probably one of the first major engagement. So the Nicole were fight in my in America for sure now, the puzzle here is how do they know? It's chase. They don't when it first happens. There's an ambush an army patrol is attacked by men with weapons that may be guerrillas. May be revolutionaries the outback as you describe it. Kevin in your book with Mitch wise. This is beyond jungle this is mountainous terrain where there's no real accuracy of anybody's account. There tells stories that tell legends. I thought often I was reading the treasure this year Madre giant Tigers and elephants and bears anything's possible. And that was sort of one of the things that attracted us the story. I mean, there's a lot of legend that goes around the hunt and capture and eventual execution is takeover. So that was sort of one of the fun parts of doing this as we we really comb through a lot of the archives of papers to look at. How the reporters time we're telling the story, and and at the time, you know, share was a ghost. They weren't positive exactly where he was he was coming up in rumors constantly and every little hotspot in Latin America, there was a rumor that it was because he really dropped off the map after his his his kind of disastrous attempt to to spurn revolution in central Africa. There's an there's an ambush in real non Kar Juan L valley, which is very far away from La Paz. And there's a rumor of guerrillas, but these significant breakthrough is the capture of documents in a Jeep. It's amazing. You can't make this stuff up in a place called St. in chimera, which is one hundred and sixty miles from Santa Cruz, the large city, what did they find in the post? He picks up. It's a it's a woman named Tanya. She's a eastern east German. I believe eastern European who who was working with Che as part of sort of his exhilarating at that point chaired arrived in Bolivia and his of goal was to set up a revolution in Bolivia an expert at all over Latin America because Bolivia's sort of a central central location in in South America. It was just a good spot to start at. So change is is out training. His guerrillas Tanya is helping with a lot of logistics and stuff, but she had all the documentation, she had all the networks. So they find her Jeep because she goes in with Rene. Neighbor, not Rene very interest with the Debray, a French communists who wanted to taste the revolutionary life. So he goes in to meet with Che and tanya's could take some and when she's doing that they find a living find her Jeep, and then when the Jeep they find documents that lay out the complete network of chase chase group. And that's how they really start pulling the threat where they have a good idea that is chain fact in Bolivia, I'm speaking with Kevin our, and he and his colleague Mitch Weiss have put together a book that tells the dramatic story of the hunt for Che and their moments here where you think this is going to fall apart. They can't possibly pull this together. When we come back. We're going to introduce the special forces into this drama because very carefully nine nineteen sixty seven there were rules. There were rules of conduct and the rules forbid the United States getting directly involved as it in the twenty first century in guerrilla war. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show.

"Exchange between George Herbert Walker Bush, and Dan rather, and it's funny. Isn't it that sixty minutes made George Bush out to be this hero? But isn't it interesting? What the media did to him when he was president and vice president I want you to hear how Dan rather goes in for the kill to start. And in my opinion in pushing back on Dan rather and giving better than he took. This is George Bush's finest moments. Relive it with me. Vice president thank you for being with us tonight. Donald Gregg still serves as you trusted adviser. He was deeply involved in running arms to the contras. And he didn't inform you found when President Reagan's trusted adviser Admiral Poindexter failed to inform him. The Prussian fired him. Why is Mr. Greg still inside the White House are still trusted adviser because I have confidence in and because this matter, Dan, as you well know, and your editors know has been looked at by can million dollar study by the Senate and the house it's been looked at by the tower commission Rodriguez testimony that you put on here. I just think it's outrageous because he was totally vindicated swore under oath that. He never talked to me about the contras. And yet this report you're making what you told me or your people. Did you have a Mr. Cohen that works for you was going to be a political profile? This is a political profile for an election. I have a very different opinion as to what one should be Don grade works to me. I don't think he's done anything wrong. And I think if he had this exhaustive examination it went into with gone into by the Senate, and by the house would have showed it, and you've impune the. My integrity by suggesting with one of your little boards here that I didn't tell the truth about Felix Rodrigues. He didn't accused me of it that you made that suggestion and other people in the navy, including Mr. Nick Brady, and he has said that my version is correct. And so I find this to be a rehash and a little bit. If you'll excuse me, a misrepresented patient on the part of CBS who said, you're doing political profiles on all the candidates. And then you come up with something that he's been exhaustively looked into. What we agreed or didn't agree to. I think you will agree for the moment and be dealt with another way. Let's talk about the record. You say that we've misrepresented your record. Let's talk about the record. If we misrepresented a record. Anyway, here's a chance decided straight, right? Set it straight on one count. If you implied from that little thing, I have a little Bonnard you're sitting on the side here that I didn't tell the truth. Now, this is all been lucked into this that Mr Vice processed here on this board for you had the idea that says that he didn't tell. Didn't tell the conference didn't hear about the contra supply from Felix Rodriguez. Rigas testified under oath is been public. And you could have at least run a little picture of him saying that I never told the vice president about the contras I'm asking for fair play. And I thought I was here to talk about my views on education or on getting this deficit down, Mr Vice president, and you wanna talk about the record on this because let's talk about the framework here. One third one third of the Republicans in this bowl one third the Republicans and one fourth of the people who say that they rather like you believe you're hiding something nephew. Here's your chance to get it out. You know, what I'm hiding? What I told the president? That's the only thing. And I've answered every question put before me. Now, you have a question. I have one said that if you had known you said, if you had known this was an arms for hostages slop that you would have opposed it. You also said that you did not know that name I answer that question. Statement. Created this program. As testified stated publicly did not think it was arms-for-hostages later. And that's neat. Because I went along with it because you know, why? Because I wasn't the question is. Mr. Buckley heard about Mr. Buckley being tortured to death later admitted his the CIA cheap. So if I heard I heard on the side of trying to get those hostages out of there. Mr Vice president. Rooms for this this talking I didn't mean to step on your line there. But you insisted that this live, and you know, limited amount of time share in here other than what you want to the president has spoken for himself. I'm asking you to speak for yourself, which you have not been willing to do in the past. If I may suggest that this is what leads people to say, quote, either George Bush was irrelevant or he was ineffective. He set himself from his a loop. Let me give you an example. He said ask the question explain out of the loop no operational role. Head you've said that if you'd wanted was an Armstrong hushed,.

Isn't it that sixty minutes made George Bush out to be this hero? But isn't it interesting? What the media did to him when he was president and vice president I want you to hear how Dan rather goes in for the kill to start. And in my opinion in pushing back on Dan rather and giving better than he took. This is one of George Bush's finest moments. Relive it with me. Vice president thank you for being with us tonight. Donald Gregg still serves as you trusted adviser. He was deeply involved in running arms to the contras. And he didn't inform you. Now when President Reagan's trusted adviser Admiral Poindexter fail to inform him. The president fired. It why is Mr. Greg still inside. The White House are still a trusted adviser because I have confidence in him. And because this matter, Dan, as you well know, and your editors now has been looked at by the ten million dollars study by the Senate and the house it's been looked at by the tower commission there egregious testimony that you put on here. I just think it's outrageous because he was totally vindicated swore under oath that. He never talked to me about the contras. And yet this report you're making what you told me or your people there, you have it Mr. Cohen that works for you was going to be a political profile. This is a political profile for an election. I have a very different opinion as to what one should be done. Great work works to me because I don't think he's done anything wrong. And I think if he'd had this exhaustive examination that went into with gone into by the Senate, and the house would have showed it and you've been feeling the. My integrity by suggesting with one of your little boards here that I didn't tell the truth about Felix Rodriguez. It kills me that you made that suggestion and other people in the meeting, including Mr. Nick Brady, and he has said that my version is correct. And so I find this to be a rehash and a little bit. If you'll excuse me, a misrepresented patient on the part of CBS who said, you're doing political profiles on all the candidates. And then you come up with something that he's been exhaustively.

I have a little binder sitting on the side here that I didn't tell the truth. Now, this is all been looked into. Mr Vice president here on this board for you had the idea that says that he didn't tell didn't tell the conscious didn't hear about the contra supply from Felix Rodriguez. Rigas testified under oath is been public, and you could have at least run a little picture of him saying that I never told the vice president about the contras and asking for fair play.

Here's the one third one third of the Republicans in this of the Republicans and one fourth of the people who say that they rather like you believe you hiding something nephew. Here's your chance to get it out of hiding, but I told the president that's the only thing and I've answered every question put before me. Now, you have a question. Glad you have one. I have one said that if you had known your said the few had known this was an arms for hostages Schwab. You would have opposed it. You also said that you not. No, I answer that question. His statement. Created this program as testified as stated publicly did not think it was arms-for-hostages later different. And that's me because I went along with it. But you know, why? Because I wasn't the question is. By Mr. Buckley heard about Mr. Buckley being tortured to death later admitted his the CIA cheap. So if I heard I heard on the side of trying to get those hostages out of there, Mr Vice president. For this this talking I didn't mean to step on your line there. But you insisted that this be live. And you know, they have a limited amount of time. That's why I want to share in here. Other than what you want to the president has spoken for himself. I'm asking you to speak for yourself, which you have not been willing to do in the past. If I may suggested that this is what leads people to say either George Bush was irrelevant or he was ineffective. He set himself from his out of the loop. But let me give you the Japanese said ask question explain out of the loop no operational role. You've said that if you'd known arms-for-hostages swap, you would've oppose it. You said the first you knew was an arms of hostage. Swap was in December of nineteen eighty six when the whole thing became briefed to me by Senator durenberger the proximity of arms to hostages much closer. President.
