"When coffee was he His picture is on the covers, Sports Illustrated and he was called the $6 Million Man. Nowadays we have races like the Divi Cup of Pegasus, CA. With so much money, but at that time Class and was winning everything. Yeah, I was kind of had a mixture because I was I was on the East Coast when he when he had his Early success with the firm the winning the Triple Crown. But as I went to the West Coast, I was out there for some time when he was at Santa Anita was like kind of a mixture with him. You know, I was around, uh, Shoemaker for hiss. Legends last ride in which he appeared different racetracks around the country as he was wrapping up his career. The same thing happened to Causton. At the beginning. There was his career. He's gluing you He won't New York cut the red eye. And I picked him up at the airport. And we had a press conference for the Fairmont Hotel on Friday and then Saturday, he will go in the California therapy. Then he went the next day just needed for the certainty that then he went the next day. He rode a Florida and then back to New York. He was taking advantage of his fame at that time, and it was getting ah. Ah, the opportunity to cash in on that absolutely saying we have to strike while the iron is hot, and he had a great had a great run. Early on. He was such a hit. He was so young, too. I I believe he was like, Was he 17 or 18 at the time? Um, you think about that boy That's also young. Yeah, They also, uh, justice. You want all those races and he won the Triple Crown. He ended up losing 110 straight races when he came west. And ended up uh, Roberts. Thanks, sir. Uh, persist single as a contract writer, and he moved to, uh, England, so I interviewed him won the Kentucky twang and Butto. Uh, after dirty with a different accent, and then he has the British accent when he went to Europe. Yeah, you have to win in Rome, Sam Women room. You gotta figure out what's going on with the locals and And you know, I've never been able to shake this filly action. Maybe I should. Maybe I should go to England may well pick up a little English accent. He was able to Europe to ride at a heavier weight. Also Definitely a bonus for those guys. And Steve Kaufman was he was a rather large for for a jockey. Anyway, he had he had the flight to wait. Another another Jack, who made that trip to Europe successfully on and And it was partly because of his weight was cash. Ask person, Steve Steve asked. Miss. And the trainer is his brother. Cash was writing insanity it and I know Remember the time he was fighting his weight, and it really is tough when these jocks when they are bigger guys, someone likes you maker or Sandy Holly. Who were naturally like guys and small, uh, they didn't have a weight problem, but the guys who had to fight the way it really is, Uh, it is a tough way to live. You know where you're speaking about Small shoemaker. I think choir shoes and the And kill this department. He was just really, really small. Uh, eggs. Unbelievable. But it certainly, uh, the greatest, if not the 01 of the greatest writers of all time, Bill Shoemaker. Uh, one here, Sandy to I looked it up. He Leavitt the jockey standings. We're like this game straight years at sanity to Sam. I know the record you're speaking of and that and I rank that up there with DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak because We've seen dominant riders before. But you know, just just to stay healthy, and you talked about Steve Kaufman, who was at the top writer in the country that time about his slump. Of losing 110 races, you know, to avoid slumps to stay healthy and to compete at such a high level. 15 consecutive years. Now that's an incredible That is an unbelievable athletic achievement. Well, when you talk about Hall of Famers and many sport Won jeopardy is really for me. It's really, uh, shows that you're really a Hall of Famer because Remembers a youngster, you get collect your baseball cards and you turn it over with the stats, and you didn't have to tell me. This guy. Was a Hall of Famer. You just turn his baseball card over and in Henry Aaron Frank Robbins said. Willie Base, those stats like Shoemaker's, They just Stood the test of time. Yeah, And I think sometimes we, You know, I'm probably guilty of this. Is anyone we way throw the word great around too easily. Um, I think it should be reserved for special people. And, uh, sometimes we wave opened up the doors a little bit and allowed it. Who's allowed people in the halls of fame? That maybe, or on the borderline? Yeah, OK, they're close. I think we should have reserved it for just the people who have those kind of stats and you're talking about where is no dispute. There's no one no one can argue they are great and certainly Shoemaker was one of those athletes and the other thing, Sam. I think, uh, It's important. It's very difficult to compare athletes of different errors. So I think you have to look at them within time frame off when they competed, and that's when you can measure their greatness. And certainly when you look at the time frame of like a Babe Ruth or Bill Shoemaker. Or Ah, uh, Tom Brady. Right now They're dominant, Dominant, dominant players. Yeah, I was asked measure of the late album Dark. I said, does this guy belong and Hall of Fame? And he said, if he probably if you have to ask, he probably doesn't know you go back. You don't have to ask. Stand immediately musical in the Hall of Fame in New York Carol in the Hall of Fame. I agree. Of course going. Of course it made me It may be sour grapes, because far as I know, I'm not in any hall seat. All right. Well, you're in the hall of fame of, uh Trying to pick a winner. And do you have anybody running today? They like Well, take them. I looked at San Anita today, and it looks like it looks like in the early races. Maybe the first three races. We're going to go a little bit chalky. I think that, too, is.

And check out some of the show after an hour. They said we're going to go find out. Wasn't that exhilarating? Gary. Jeff, right. Honestly, it's it's it's kind of like that around our house, and they're all hanging out. We have a lot of fun and look who's here with us now. Hey, y'all go anywhere. Happy twenty seventh wedding anniversary to my wife. Denise I heard that. Hopefully, she heard it earlier today, but I'm just making sure bingo. Should come to the game not locked out while I was gonna say expecting a little extra when you get home than I know, I'm going to sleep maybe a little fluff the pillow on the couch for you. They're tough guy. Yeah porch. Nice. Well, congratulations. But that ended up we were talking about streaks opening day streaks. Here you go. Any seven years, that's Admiral Bank, you you guys have seen each other for that. Seventy two hours in that entire Twenty-seven-year-old pretty much probably is what keeps it together. But Zach good for you exactly today, though, boys. Yeah. I was four thousand forty nine. Yeah. It looks like it was a sea of red. I mean, the the reds do. I mean, there's no other. I don't care what they'd never been any other day. And the national American League, this is this is I can tell you. I have in the thing that the reds due to me that they dawn. Is what they did today. Were you have think about this? You had rob Manfred the Commissioner of baseball grand marshal, then Johnny bench. It come up with the parade. Embassador? I mean, then you have Joe Morgan honorary captain you have Eric Davis. Throwing the pitch to Johnny bench your Bronson Arroyo delivering the game ball. They recognizing a lot of people say, well, of course, they do because you know, when you're not winning it doesn't matter. They do you're correct. The wells that they do. The precision of what the hell they do it. The lineups are done the flags unveiled the mystic sang. And all of a sudden, it's like the flyover exchange just came out of nowhere. And just I mean right on time. Boom. Well, as amazing, you know, let's say you just pointed out something else to the logistics of that the number of people that if you've never been an event production or execution and have to understand the number of moving parts to get all of those things to happen. And honestly, you know, what the people that did all that that were responsible for that today. You know, when they're going to start working on opening day next year tomorrow or maybe the day after wreck and kudos to everybody on the red staff. Zach. House-key in is staff. Yeah. I mean each and every year, they just it's just it's like clockwork it is. And that's for every event that they have down there and every game. It's not the opener. You got the fly over you got the giant flag and everything else and all the pomp and circumstance. But I mean every game it's like every game and event well Fillon, the, you know, who's gonna sing God bless America who not going to sing the national anthem who is there. Somebody specialty taking out to the ball game. And they do I would tell you this. They do a good job of working locally with like we've had discussions. So we brought somebody a couple of years ago. That was a contr- remember battery artist, I forget his name is huge now, apparently, but he he came down, and we had him come down to be honorary game, captain. And so they they will reach out and say, hey, if you have something you want to help promote or do this or that and the precision of it? You're right is is exception. Don't forget this just about the time. You would say, hey, they're off tomorrow. They don't play again until Saturday. But guess what they have tomorrow at one fifty press conference in the green belt near the reds hall of fame. Yeah. Which I mean that is a mass. I know they've been working diligently if I'm not mistaken around the clock to get ready for that. I mean, so even when you think there's a day off between when they play games two and three of the pirates series big day form tomorrow, no days off and the kids day, and that whole thing that's something. They do. They do a great job of engaging. The fans of all age exactly, you know. And I think that's where like even I mean, how many places would start your biggest day of the year with an in memoriam to those former reds who've come and gone Chuck Harmon and Frank Robbins, a handful of others that were involved in the organization way back but to start that way. That is the first usher. First usher, I mean, and you know, that is what they really pay attention and always have. I mean, you can say what you want about Marge and all that.

And the one who would love to be invited on they get honored the fiftieth anniversary, and this and that and everything else. But I mean, you have something up, you know, do something that really wasn't even done by them. Now, the top my favorite was the one where they decided to honor Collins worth when he was thirty coming in with NBC, I guess they already paid to fly him in. So that's when they did the honor for him. Yeah. There's a right way to do it in a wrong way to do it. And they're about four hundred yards apart.

"Office before I could sit down real good. They'd said they want to the manage the club. I was stunned and feels Agassi. Yeah. We want you to manage the club. We want you to play a manager. I said, wait a minute. You want me to do both of them. He said we're gonna pay you two hundred thousand dollars. I said I'm supposed to be paid one hundred eighty thousand dollars to play next year. So you only gonna pay me twenty thousand dollars the managers club next year. He said, that's right. Take it on leaving Robinson says his agent took him out of the room. He says this is a chance for you to break that barrier now open the door, and let more African Americans have the opportunity to come through it. And I thought about it that way I said, I'll take the bullet. Let's face it. You're black. You're the first black manager in baseball. What is this duty your head nothing? Matter of fact, my head size has gotten a little larger lately. But only because my let my hair growth being the first it was a real thrill live it sunk in. I knew it was going to be an awful lot of pressure a lot of expectations and a lot of unhappy people because when things went right fine. But when things go wrong, it was going to be doubly bad because maybe in the first black manager. But that didn't bother me I taken challenges before in the past is a player. When you're a rookie in nineteen fifty six the Cincinnati Reds. You couldn't stay in the same places with all your teammates. No, what was it like at that time? It was rough. I play the half a year in other news first time, I've been away from home, as you know, a seventeen year old and went to the movie one day 'cause I love movies, and the way they mind, but my up on the counter van the glass and the latest said, we don't serve your kind. I it. What's my kind? He said, we don't serve black people can't come in this movie. I was crushed and spring training in one thousand nine fifty five Robinson would for the first time knee Jackie Robinson than really a chance to talk to him because I was a shy kid in those days. But I did get a chance to talk to him when he retired the pollen near very lightning worried about you conducted yourself off the field and you carry on the legacy of African Americans as small keeping those claims actually what he wanted to do. What do you think the significance was then you broke the color line for managers almost thirty years? It was nothing compared to let Jackie did what he went through. But it was important because I was the first and that meant the doors open, but how long ago would stay open dependent on basically the way I conducted myself success that would have. The Indians improved under Robinson and had a winning record his second season. But after a slow start in nineteen seventy seven he was fire. He did manage the giants. And with your heels was named the thousand nine hundred nine American League manager of the year Robinson later became the last man to manage the Montreal Expos and after they relocated the first manager of the Washington nationals in his sixteen seasons as a manager Robinson's teams never reached the play offs. Your team was never never never. So I was very proud of what I got out of the teams. There's only one African American manager major league baseball. There were three the beginning of the season. Now, there's only one. What do you think about that? Well, I don't like the numbers, but I don't have any problems with that. Because I think baseball now is at the point the where they look at the performance of the team and see if the managers getting the most out of the players, and if you're not doing she going to be like, oh, the one and only Frank Robbins. For his part Robinson was elected to the hall of fame in his first year eligibility nine hundred eighty two seven years after his first game as the Indians managed. That is pretty good into vantage. Especially in the big moment. And it still is their big moment special. You're the only person to win the MVP in both leagues. Triple crown in nineteen sixty six the first African American manager you were awarded the presidential medal of freedom the highest civilian or in this country. What is Frank Robinson's legacy? All I know is way I've conducted myself in my lifetime so far. And I have a few more years will continue to conduct myself in the right way. And try to set an example for the young people this coming along after them. Frank Robinson spent his final years giving back to the game that he was so passionate about serving as a special advisor to major league.

"And the Rams for me and the early years. That's so cool. I mean, just think about going to those games able to watch west and Baylor and Chamberlain those guys. I mean that you probably didn't think much about it. Then when you look back at it. Now, I mean, some of the greats of the game and getting to see him before basketball was maybe such a huge that that's really big. Here's the amazing thing. This is almost ridiculous. But my dad got to know Jim Murray, the great LA times columnist, and I went to school with his kids, and and GM would get tickets to every every game in town for free. The you know, there is no such thing as ethics are conflict of interests. You know that the big time writers just got these tickets meals on the Lakers tickets for on the floor were they really? Me. And Tony Marino. We're Nicholson and Lou Adler, then we're we're sitting on the floor watching these guys we just use Jim tickets, just laughing. That's hilarious. Oh my goodness. That's just I mean that will hook you on the NBA for life watching the big, oh and Russell, and Dave Bing and Joe Joe Caldwell, and you know from that range. I mean, I don't get that. Now.

Thanks. Yeah. Always fun. Thanks a lot. I make sure you watch it, especially if you're. Somebody in the family's part of the younger demographic, or whatever and didn't know about Frank Robinson. Because it's a great piece. Good reminder and not only that like you said first black manager group of players that were he's peers again as we see that there are. So there are shrinking numbers of African American players. I mean, you're talking about Willie Mays, Hank. Aaron Ernie banks Willie McCovey. Lou Brock, Billy Williams, Richie like, Tommy Davis, Maury wills Bob Gibson, Frank Robinson. I mean, it was just a golden age, and he was so good. He was great in the World Series. Bill. Russell. High school basketball team right here. It's super cool to think about that kind of stuff when I'm thinking about Bruce going to the game sit in fourth floor, you go watching those guys. So you wouldn't get tickets at all you'd be barely in the building barely. Floor. That's how sports writings changed a little bit some tickets that we're good. We're good. It's tough to write bad things about the team. They know what they're doing. All right. Bottom of the hour. Gets ready dubs countdown to tip off want to get into the whole Klay piece that that Marcus wrote. It's a really good one. We'll get into all that as well.

Drafted paulie MAC in the first round of my radio host draft in my second round pick draft at a San Francisco state, Adam Copeland. Congrats copes guy, you're going to trade me. Like like, they traded Westbrook for Sibbon's. Wait a minute. There was a trade union. See that. Yeah. So after they finish the the actual draft. Lebron was like dude, I want Ben Simmons. And so then you honest agreed to trade Ben Simmons to LeBron for Russell Westbrook. I missed that the guys were riffing on it. Like they asked if it was. Okay. And and Charles Barkley said, I think that I think. Lebron should have to give his entire benched. Get good. I saw that. I saw that. I thought that was about Anthony Davis my bad. They actually made a trade. They're not gonna lie without revealing. I made two trades on majors draft night Monday. Trader Jack out here. Doing our thing. Yeah. By the way team. The bronze team has better way better. Not even close. He's schooled the young Greek. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I'm all the way. What's this going to do to k D's fragile sensibilities? Now, he's been drafted by LeBron. Shafted number one. Well, no, I know. But now he's gonna this is gonna feel more speculation. Is he going to be a Laker? Does he wanna play? Lebron is New York over. It's just like an endless thing. Cope who knows everybody. React. Hey, the meantime, while you guys are wheeling dealing with team, Murph. Nobody's asked me who on drafted in my first round. So I'm just going to go ahead and drive the lane here in my first pick. I'm going to take the multi-talented multidimensional. He's almost like a jack-of-all-trades cope. He's Magic Johnson in his rookie season. He'll play all five positions. If you ask him to he'll hit for forty two as a centre. His name is Darren Chan and he's my number one draft pick. Okay. That's because he's a Swiss army knife doodle, do whatever I need them to. But what does it say that I drafted you first? And you didn't draft me. I was it says it were at odds. It says it were at odds. But at least we're together, you know, what I say to you, Paul. Grow up. Well, it totally. Why do I have to talk to you grow up? Hey, look, Murph, and I might be at odds cope except when we have to fight Howard Bryant. Then we'll team up by the way, I did not deliver on the teas overnight. Dave upset at me as he drove down the cold dank dark dank dank dark damp roads at the bay this morning. Howard Bryant's most underrated player of all time is Henry Aaron Henry hang. How can you be rated though, he says he is underrated outside of the home runs. Look. Go look at it to go look at the rest of his numbers. So copes your thoughts. I approach that subject in the leadoff spot. I mentioned you. And I mentioned that Howard Brian always says that and I just said, okay. That's fine. I think it's Frank Robinson. Because the guy was homerun champ. Hey, karen. I'm gonna go with the guy who like you said nobody realizes was what is it five eighty five eighty six five eighty six eighty six and the home run. And then how about this one Dave, and I were talking about this this morning. He's got his jersey retired for three different teams. I didn't realize all three of those teams also built him a statue damn how about that. Really? Bronze statue, she's at three statue guy. He's in the hall. How many three statue guys out there are there for three pro teams? I would say none LeBron's going to start making calls today because he's gonna be like, wait a minute. I played for three teams. I want three steps if Robinson can have. It's okay. It's going to get a couple to right Hank Aaron's career, by the way. Do you? Go by shoe shaven be bringing this up at Hank Aaron's career war is one forty three war became an issue last night on Twitter that copes. No, I didn't. Well here. Frank Robbins was one oh seven so by war Hank Aaron was significantly better player, but Bill James the smarmy analytics founder, the founder of sabermetrics the guy who looks down on everybody because you're not as smart as me sent out a tweet last night saying that in nineteen sixty six the year. Frank Robinson won the triple crown MVP that the war stats showed that there was a pitcher. I think the guy's name was Earl Mitchell who was like fifteen and fourteen that year with a three four five era, but war showed that he was the most valuable player by war rural pitcher who had a fifteen fourteen record and Dennis Eckersley responded to that tweet to Bill James any wrote shut up. So works after all these years. Thank you. Thanks, bro. Shut up. That's good. So. I didn't realize war was decided who who unwell Bill James editor APEC. And my point was that war is a, you know, he my point was that Frank Robinson was better than this guy. In war is a bad staff back then wasn't. But by that point he'd been so faced by Eckersley. Nobody really read that. Twitter. If you guys noticed like culturally speaking like back in the seventies eighties nineties, even the early owes like everybody was always famous for. You would always have that one guy in your group who would get the quote, beer muscles. He'd have a couple of beers. And I'll said he wants to fight everybody in the room. And you get his get his ass kicked. If he did beer muscles are gone can introduce you to Twitter muscle intimate. Well, we'd our muscles have taken, bro. But I'll be at the Monaco hotel on seventh at at eight AM Saturday morning. Don't you bring a Twitter muscles by you can punch me in the mouth listen cope. I don't know how you did that that quickly. But that's why you're you, dude. I just stand back in a plot. I'm gonna trade my first round pick, a paulie MAC for move copes with my first round I offered Murph to have your back against our Brian to. I know paulie just did. But I shut you protect yesterday. She did I'll go to war with HP. And what did I write back to you? You said he's a dog. I said I might need to get a lot of dogs. The junkyard dog. I played pick up basketball with a man. He's thrown a lot of elbows. He would tell you that. I'm a lunatic to one time. He and I teamed up together to beat Jeff. And it was somebody else famously. It was an epic game that had to go into OT you had to win by two. And we were scraping. It was down in Scottsdale buddy during spring training nineteen. Yeah. Yeah. And we finally when we won I slammed the ball down. And I shouted Fido way. Missile. Howard L down to the floor laughing. And I was like.

Remember, the famous story or not the famous, but not as famous as me yell and find a way. Remember when Larry Baer told us that he went down to the four seasons in Beverly Hills. And they went all day without ordering room service. Remember that bond was so connect it was Larry when the Larry was hungry and four hundred but apparently far hunt spent more time talking to Larry that day at the four seasons than he did acquiring players in the off season, dude. So it's been crazy, man. And everybody's on on this. Adam Jones kick now everybody wants Adam Jones here, by the way. Should we call in irrational exuberance? Have you checked his numbers? I did the number because I think all this happened after Bob Nightingale put out a tweet the other day. Remember, the one that Posey just Crawford and re tweeted as well saying, look, this guy's a great player. He's a great ambassador for the game and seven of the last eight years he had twenty five plus homers last year was that was. My bad. My numbers are better than I remember. He actually hit two eighty one the of seven thirty to honestly, go look up. What was like what was Gorkhas last year? What was Gorkhas Izzo PS? I bet it was seven thirty two. Did he have like fifteen dollars? Let's see I'm gonna get a little Gorky wa- Gorky is up from last year. Ooh, he plummeted down to that. Second half skid six seventy six bring on bring on AJ baby at Brigham Adam Jones, sixty points higher. Wow. How did Gorky finish the six seventy six P S Prudhoe, man? That's a role in that role in that crap out in Boston. Yeah. No. He's always going to go. Yeah. And by the way, speaking of Bryce, it's been two days since our our excitement hit the airwaves, and here we are. There's no Bryce, no more buzz. What's going on Phillies, the Phillies a position himself? Now. Even more Philly. I can feel it on my gut. It doesn't make. I mean financially. It makes a lot of sense. They're stacking tally. They made a trade without spending money. He's always been a west coast guys made that pretty clear, pardon me. I don't know. I mean. Yeah, they're stacking talented paying big, but I don't know probably JT Rio. Mutoko the obscure you're only if you're a hardcore baseball fan, you know, how good he is. But he played for the Marlins. The most casual fans don't know who he is great catcher go into the Marlins copes. Did you see the stat in the last four years JT rearm Utah's war twelve point nine second in all of baseball catcher's to Earl Mitchell, the much-maligned BUSTER Posey much-maligned and Buster's is like well ahead busters. Like, it's seventeen point nine nice bounce back year. And all we do is rag on BUSTER. And he has he has the highest war of any catcher list. Four years. What a bonus it would be to get him back to form this year hitting again busters. Oh PS last year. Seven forty one before he went on the shelf mccutchen, seven seventy two mccutchen belt wound up with seven fifty six Crawford seven nineteen and then copes your guy Austin Slater, six forty through that other actually Pablo finishes seven twenty seven. That's Adam Jones's is. He going to be playing a lot this year. We a lot of Pablo at first and third question, man. I think it's definitely possible guy hit guy played two hundred thirty ABC's hit nine moms. Do he's almost a twenty Homer guy. If you give them fulltime playing based on we're far hunted down in LA. I wouldn't be surprised if we actually saw more Pablo at second. Also. Never really playing in their last year a little bit number. They did that with Muncie as well. The dodgers did yours matchups. He's a switch hitter. I can find a spot for him. I don't know. Why not interesting? Interesting. Just tell me this when Pablo's Patty feeling good like relative to write relative to Austin Jackson. Yeah. I'm looking at last relative to Stephen Duggar, relative to Abby Abby Arto Avellino who by the way is back. How about Hannie about Hanson Allen has his last year PS or six ninety nine he stole seven bags. Nobody steals bags anymore. Giants leading steel guy was maceachin with thirteen and they traded his so. Anyway. Yeah. Come on Sandoval, by the way, longoria opium, six ninety four. I'll come on. Now. There's no need. We don't need to lead the team in bombs at sixteen. So boy, the silence was chilling. What am I going to say that all we got to clear the decks for gentleman JIMBO coming on in? So let's play the.

"One word regarding Frank Robinson. Fearless John is calling from Ardsley John you're on the fan. What's happening? Steve I've been listening to you. And yeah, there were great words about that. You had some great words about Frank Robbins. I do remember him very well. 'cause I'm old I'm older than you. And I watched him play. And he was a gang killer without any question. And when he became manager. He mine me he had the attitude of Billy Martin meaning. He would really a couple of times when the pitcher is coming out to change pitcher. I can't think of the guy's name in the guy walked off the mound before thank God there. Oh my God. That he gives him a year. Don't come off this that was that was Jim Barr. Yeah. Got. But I just remember he, but he had the when he was manager had that that fiery like w Martin. That fiery attitude too. One thing about Ted Williams as a manager and Frank Robinson as a manager to they expected players to be like their one they were playing and that is impossible are was impossible with most most players, Ted Williams. Ted Williams, I did see Kevorkian's play. And he was you know, they used to talk about the trade that they were going to trade. Ted Williams to Boston, Boston, New York and DiMaggio to Boston. Well, it certainly wouldn't have favored Caglayan because Ted Williams didn't hit any cheap home. Runs in demand. Yelich he ever played in Boston leaper to wound up for a five hundred home runs. And the the other thing I wanted to say is you're talking about the rule changes. You know, the nationally gets got to you've got to come come up with. They they've got to go with the D H. I know the pictures aren't going to like it because now pitching. Seven batters in the weakest of the eighth in the night. I think what you were talking about these four. What you're talking about in the pitching was relief pitcher coming in. Three pitches. They don't want one guy come left come this nonsense, which you're absolutely right. Well, of course, it is. That doesn't save any time. That's ridiculous. And it takes away a lot of strategy of the game. If you get a take away the D H in the National League, which takes away to some degree strategy and moves a manager and a team can make. And then obviously this too is awful. And and I doubt that my two cents worth in this more. I don't know the due for sure, my guess is. We won't see that roll. We'll see the in the National League. And probably this season will see the twenty second. But I mean, how are you going to enforce that what is going to be called? If it's twenty one seconds or twenty. I mean, that's ridiculous. Also. One thing. I wanted to say that you were just mentioning. You know, not having a D H strategy, rechange and stuff. Well, it it certainly a little ridiculous. I think to have a pitcher like a degrom, look what a ticket the Caribbean. Qingming wrong in I guess a playoff game and finished his career. You can't I if they don't want any more pitchers. They can't they brought up to pitch pitch. Well, I'll say this John and thank you for the call and the comments the listen, I I would hate to see the Mets with their pitching their pitchers can hit batting number eight already. So I mean as far as that goes as far as that goes. I mean, I would I would miss that. And Syndergaard that doesn't like the idea, and I can't blame them you bring up Ted Williams. And of course, that and one of the great almost trades that. I mean, I think it would have upset. Both teams was trading. Joe DiMaggio for Ted Williams. And I love the fact with the Ted Williams in one thousand nine hundred forty one when he hit four zero six and the final day of the race. And I think everyone knows by now the final day of the regular season. He was right at four hundred. And he was given the option in the final two games that we're going to play a doubleheader to make it a complete one hundred fifty four game season. And Williams was offered. Hey, you know, what you're right at four hundred. You don't have to play in any of these two games. And he said baloney. I'm playing both games. Anyone six for eight. And when he retired in nineteen sixty he did.

We got so wrapped up with the start of the show. I wanted to spend a minute or so on Frank Robinson. Yes. Frank Robinson passed away bone cancer. Just happened right before show. He was eighty eighty two eighty Hank Aaron just celebrated his eighty fifth birthday and the great Frank big Frank who was a no nonsense guy at a great player. I think in this includes pitchers I think that Robinson's one of the I think he's one of the twenty best players of all time. I think when you rifle through the roots in the maze and the cops and the Colfax is. And I think he's on that list. And he was also the first African American manager in one thousand nine hundred seventy four for the Indian. So that shadow that Frank Robinson cast on the sport in the battles box for the next generation is huge one life eighty three years. Eighty three was nineteen ninety nine hundred sixty six won the triple crown and the World Series that year rookie year to eight PM each league. You know, it was just amazing about him. Is it? Keep carried himself. Unlike a star Ray just felt like those guys back then that's kind of how they rolled through. And it was the. Era. You're talking about playing in the fifties and sixties. Yeah. You couldn't be bombastic and loud. And crazy. I mean, you could, but it wouldn't be fully accept last night that you were accepted anyways. But there's just this this dignity goes good word Frank Robinson's name. And how he carried himself. I agree. He'll be missed obviously. But a full life. He lived in one of the most successful and accomplished and championed players in major league baseball history is three fan bases that view him as as an icon. You have the reds. You have the Orioles. You have the Indians all for different reasons, obviously. But listening more go look at big Frank statues. Go to baseball reference, I'm not going to run through them. But I will tell you this. If you drive it around, and you're not really fully from the how great was Frank Robinson Frank just from the again, the not not nothing managerial stuff and the stuff that's actually more important at the end of the day. But just as hitter his old PS was basically nine thirty. And he played until he was forty and you look at those last few years, and there was as expected without steroids some real series attrition. Yeah. His OPEC was probably more like nine sixty nine seventy. He was a beast Frank Robbins. So rest in peace of the big, man. I've got a question for you here. Teak? We start to morph into and merge. A little LeBron stuff without Anthony Davis for the Lakers. And again, we're not surprised on the show. We told you that for weeks or so what's going to happen? I'm wrestling with what I will. Find more entertaining. The rest of the way twenty-seven games, whatever it is for the Lakers. Do I want to see them in fight and miss the playoffs? Do I want to see them squeezing get the aid and getting barest by the warriors? Sure yet. I think I think. I dunno. Lebron starting to talk about like, I don't need to add anything else to my resume type thing. Right. It is. You know, we knew it was going to be hard. And you know, if we don't make the play like, he's he's he's positioning for them not to so that we don't kill him for going there. And completely disrupting that environment we've seen LeBron be disruptive to an organization when he comes in the same thing. Same thing with the Cleveland Cavaliers the difference being the Cavaliers were veteran enough to deal with it. This Lakers team is not veteran, and they are not dealing with it. Well, and you're listening to lavar heard lavar on on Colin today. I caught him like what are you talking about? I mean just basis that Luke Walton staying exactly fair to Luke Walton. I mean, and it's not indicative of what's actually happening there. Lebron is made this this crossover into being like an on court. Executive in in innocence. And he's trying to shape this team. Like this. What he does he goes somewhere? He helped shape the team either with either with in conjunction with players like Dwayne Wade and quiz, Chris Bosh or in conjunction with ownership like he did. But the Cleveland Cavaliers and brought in this guy, and that guy and George hill. Zac, give me give me these guys, and I'm gonna help you guys get to ends June, essentially when a championship and now he's trying to do the same thing with the Lakers. But at the same time going. Yeah, I'm I'm I'm one of the boys. Remember, you always says this my guys my guys these guys these guys I think these guys are starting to realize that you're not one of the guys here. One of the execs, and yeah, you can say all the right things. But we don't want to sit next to you. I mean, it may be just been a quirky image. But it was an image. That was that was an image. But in the NBA. By design. Agreed. And it's telling you get these guys laying down against the Pacers getting blown out given no fight because they feel like they're not part of the future plans of the team. Wait to see that. I mean Sunday by the Sixers. I think the I think the act worked a couple of times. No, it's like a fool me once thing. Oh, yeah. I don't think it's gonna work here. I've over LeBron you, I don't know. How else I need? I've said it for over. Lebron the manipulation the listen. I have no problem exercising power. I mean, let's not be foolish. There are certain people in our or naive is better work in our business us like any any cable out any news outlet. Longtime anchor right? If that person, male or female, who's been there, a long time and delivers ratings and makes, you know, eight nine ten fifteen million dollars a year some cases more, obviously, if they say something's product going to happen. I mean, if they want something that they want somebody gone where they want somebody brought in there's a chance that management is going to acquiesce. Yup. And I think what's happened. Now. What lebron? And so I recognize that. And I'm okay with that part of the power play. What bothers me is that there's a passive aggressiveness and almost like like a like he tries to detach himself come on, man. That's what I mean. We're still trying to be one of the boys. That's what I mean. But he's not. Well, the Lakers boys de waited all those cats. Episode three young guy those guys guys. But I mean think about big ROY K D said about him the toxic. Yeah. I'd say he was prophetic with that. Right. He was on the money with that would be the most intelligent thing. Kevin durant? In terms of bike being perceptive and being ahead of the curve like that that was dangled in dropped in our show. I remember that day very well. And we're like, oh, it's a little bit jealous. Yeah. But he's a lot bit right. All of a sudden look at it today. I hear he was a hundred percent all the money. And you're right Lakers are getting swallowed up by jealousy. And and your point is a good one. What's beginning to happen know, the older guard who generally reveres LeBron and respects him? Now, you got this young crop who they entered the league wanting to be him. But now, they're bitter at the way, he's maybe misusing or the perception that he's misusing his power. So I don't think guys like, you know, Lonzo or his dad or whether it's really know truly how they feel but there's gotta be some resentment. It's human nature. There's gotta be looking over his shoulder. You feel like you're an afterthought that you're expendable whereas a year ago, you were you're part of a core that was going to be, you know, an eye conic piece of Laker history. And now, you're whatever you can go to go to you can go to Phoenix you you can go to New Orleans. That's where lavar once. Yeah. Phoenix. You can go someplace else it'll be all right. We're gonna we're gonna we're gonna stay in without you. And that's hard to do. It's gotta be it'd be fair to LeBron. It's not his fault that the Lakers drafted the wrong guy. They drafted the wrong guy. Lonzo's not the number two pick in the draft. He's a little bit banged up. And he said that with Colin today or Collins said that to to lavar, and I gotta tell you. It's a lot of people don't give credit in our industry. I did listen to that matter of fact, I before I went into the garage to park, I listened to the rest of it. I want to see how it ended and Colin came is a real journalist there. He did it wasn't happening. Lavar, you crazy you're wacky. He came with a list of angles, and he pulled into the thought of of lavar which obviously is an extension of Lonzo did a really good job. We get more into this. What's the bigger problem? Is it Luke Walton in LA or is it LeBron? Don't answer jot that down Luke or LeBron K like it. All right. Let's get these phone calls coming up. We'll push back inbounds out amount. We have to we have to connect with our people the Kevin Durant stopped. The bronze dot the trade deadline will tell you what the poll question is. It's a good one pertaining to the Eastern Conference lot of major moves. But tweaks that certainly make a few teams even more valuable than they were maybe two or three days ago. So we'll get that after acts update, here's rich..

Russell high school basketball star of the team that I was not aware that they were on the same basketball team. I do know that he played in the same outfield with Veda Pinson, who we went on the plane was in in Cincinnati. And curt flood was also from the same high school. I was not aware. I'm not surprised that he played basketball. I'm not I didn't. I know that he and Russell cross paths and basketball that I didn't know Joe in Peekskill what's up Joe. Hey, mike. How you doing? What's happening? Yeah. Frank Robinson, one of my first memories of baseball ever was his home run against the dodgers. I remember watching him round the betas either on the news. And we're we're watching a game. I was only like six eighty seven years old. And he did did he not hit one of the balls at AG who was my favorite player Nimitz made the great catch on and that game in sixty nine. He Elrod Hendricks. I think he I think he hit the first one and Elrod hit the second one. If I remember, right. Yeah. Agu was my favorite player in the NHL may to amazing catches obviously in that game. And then obviously Swoboda made the great catch, you know, on the brook of Brooks. On that on the great play in right field. But robinson. You can think about big home runs. He had in the postseason big moments. He had I mean, he had he had ten postseason home runs, which is a lot. That's a lot only thirty five games in the postseason. Thirty five home runs. That is very very impressive. Lumber. Jimmy, Glen cove, what's up Jimmy? Yeah. My I have a story to tell you that I played golf with that art champs gay couple of years ago when he was telling me when he came up as a rookie pretty late September the resolution losing by a lot, Freddie just said to him. The war until Frank Robbins. You're gonna hit for him. And he went all reset Frank. I'm bathroom. Frank said get the hell outta here. Go take a seat. I believe it. I listen, I believe it. Sounds like Frank. I mean, if you go if you go look at francs years and how consistent they were. I think people might might be surprised at just because. In the National League that time there was Willie Mays even Hank Aaron didn't get that much attention at times. You had no team in New York. And then you had the Mets, but you had Mickey Mantle obviously. And guys like Frank Robinson in Cincinnati. Didn't get that much attention. I mean think about this. He comes up in nineteen fifty six as a rookie twenty years old. Thirty eight home runs. Eighty three be is for the reds twenty one years old and fifty seven. He's twenty nine homers then in fifty eight hits thirty one homers. Eighty three Rb is hits. Then here come the big is a nineteen fifty nine thirty six one twenty five three eleven. Nineteen sixty one thirty seven one twenty four three twenty three thirty nine one thirty six three forty two. Then he comes over to the is less in Cincinnati where he gets traded egos. Thirty three one thirteen to ninety six. They trade him at thirty..

But also show you something different. And a big part of this as we'll see is writer ROY Thomas because he grew up reading the golden age comics, timely comics reading about these heroes Thomas was child in the metaphor was born in like forty or forty one. So. He voraciously read golden, age comics. So this is really all him. This is him. Like plantings flag in the ground say, this is what I want. These are the comics. I wanna read these comics, I want to write these are the comics I want to edit. I mean, he followed Stanley as editor and chief and as writer of many books, so ROY was the champion. This was his passion. It's got to be one of the best parts of being a comic creator is that you kinda get to tell the stories you've always wanted to tell and get so many more people to see them. Yeah. I love hearing stories like that. And if you're fortunate enough, it's it's incredible. Okay. So that was giant size invaders number where they come together.

That says what we really are protectors preservers. And then you get the human torch, Jim Hammond. They're like guests. I'm just hotter. Temper than you cap.

Yeah, I I love teams like that. Where really they don't belong together, but they can still really work together. If they find that one little narrow path of common ground one little narrow strip so invader series ran from nineteen seventy five to nineteen seventy nine forty one issues. Plus an annual the bulk of the series was written by ROY Thomas, and then towards the end by Don glut, most of the art by Frank Robbins, and then some by Paul Berg towards the end. And so. Had lots of heroes that they teamed up with who are just showed up in the book or even join the invaders during this run and for ROY in the crew a fun way to bring back up date, many of the original timely marvel characters or just make up brand new ones that fit into those stories. We'll see ROY Thomas open the floodgates and bring back a ton of those characters over four years. They really did some fun world building around the classic heroes and the teams who fought during both world wars. So we have Union Jack, who's the original creation of this era? Not a golden age return. He's probably the most notable of them. He's an addition to this invaders team. But there have been several legacy heroes who've been union Jackie as a dope costume. He's had numerous series of his own. He's been I think on the avengers. She's been around jackets really cool so invaders number seven introduced the original Union, Jack James falls worth as well.

This key group is who we really look at as our invaders. And so you may ask yourself when did they first appear or you could ask me. Well, it was the nineteen forties. Right. No, kind of here's starts to get a little confusing. Believe me doesn't end the haters the invaders as an official team didn't show up or get a name or an introduction until the nineteen seventies with giant size invaders number one that led to the ongoing invader series that ran from nineteen seventy five nineteen seventy nine. So how do the comics of the forties factor in the golden age stuff where the human torch first appeared name or first appeared kept American spirit. Many folks look to the all winner squad a similar squad that appeared twice two times. That's it. They won all winter. Yeah. Get second chance. They appeared twice in the comics late forties as the basis of the invaders often, what people think of so the all winners squad this kind of prototype for the invaders. I came together in all winners comics number nineteen in nineteen forty six. The team was named for captain America, Bucky, human torch Toro, plus Miss America. And the wizar- there's a quick diversion. I wanna do on MS America and wizar- because they come in and out of Vader's history or the years, they were timely comics era, heroes time comics is who we were in the thirties in the forties. And they appeared in lots of comics of the forties. Miss america. She had super strength durability, and she didn't fly per se from what I understand she sort of like launched herself. And then could keep herself going for a while kenley. Jessica Jones ish, very very Jessica Jones's wizar-. He's a speedster runs. Real fast easy. They actually get married after World War Two. They. Came back in the sixties and seventies. As part of this whole invaders retro hype they later joined the invaders and when we get into the seventies invader series, you'll you'll see tons more timely comics, superheroes, reintroduced into modern marvel it becomes a big thing for the invaders.

It said at the end of nineteen forty one the invaders form with cap Bucky torch, Toro, name more all them team to fight Nazi super soldier named Masterman. We get a little conversation there and footnote saying. Cap'n torture talking about fighting red school together in comical young allies number one that's from nineteen forty one.
