I i was made happy by hearing her sing. I did not think that i was shitting two pineapples. I thought i was vacationing on an island with billy concerned. That sportscenter is running. Adverts for very old demographic is now would expect like the game show network to be running advert for stool softener. No if you're sitting on the couch a very long time watching sports you're gonna need a stool softener that's right. They also run ads on. Espn for like tactical glasses. Have you guys seen those ones that. That's what i call the. Acc network brand of us like the the commercials on the sec network or something else man because you can tell they're not in every market that are not every cable system and so some of the commercials. They are all over the place. Please please dear god please. You guys work on building an economic money tree for metal art in which we happily play all of those commercials. The way john oliver treats local news like please get me all of those commercials. Have all of these people advertise with us. If you've got the weird or the better the strange please dear. God have all those people. Were pretty big podcast. How do we do that. One of my favorite segments in all of television is john oliver. Just checking in on the local news like pleased if you want to know why. America's divided go grab those acc commercials that are playing and and and just know how different some regions of our country are like the. Oh tommy maske commotions referring mcgriff as sort of thing. Yes yes the the three time world champion minor league baseball team teaching play baseball instructional video. That gets results. Didn't he say he never watched them. I think that came out recently. Fred mcgriff doesn't know much about them. Now he doesn't know that that that left a permanent imprint in your childhood he was just making at a local ballfields. Some silly commercial that he never thought about again. And what's fred mcgriff doing with his life. He doesn't know that people were talking about him watching videos all it would have to be be be hall of famer who is not involved in social media at all or has like a reclusive life of some sort. You think it's impossible to consider the fred mcgriff wouldn't have heard of a commercial that touched all of our childhoods that he was in. Yeah well just that. He did a commercial as a throwaway one day that he just went one day to a park. Did i mean it's a pretty amateur commercial. I think he's a liar. I mean somebody's gonna mention it to him. Hey fred just casually come up at any point in his life like hey fred videos. My kids are kids are watching. I'm sure people took up those videos for him to autograph right. You would think that's what i would want. If you want anything autographed by fred. Mcgriff what would it be. I didn't think we'd end up here today. No one has anything even a note. You can even say baseball. One baseball by fred mcgriff. That had that you to commercial problem. He's a hall of fame or very close to being. He didn't make the hall of fame but he's close to being a hall of fame baseball player. I would assume that people would want fred mcgriff autograph baseball. Is that something you put on a resume. Close to being a hall of famer. So silly cats in horseshoes and hand-grenades greg. Exactly the jackie..

"McLaurin 10 Terry McLaurin to what's underrated fantasy receivers out there also tied and Logan Thomas to is having a good season two for the for the Washington football team, But I still like the matchup, especially at quote unquote home, which will be in Arizona. And then I doubt Dallas. I like that matchup is well, too. So, looking ahead. I like what you're saying, especially getting sharing back, especially the way Jimmy Ward and redder playing and Especially the way Fred Warner and Dre Greenland are the playing defensively in for the linebacking corps for the 40 Niners. His name is Fred. Is it Fred War? Brian Baldinger with that? That was namely you said no reds out there anymore. Do bring Fred Shut up for a dean. Dude. All right. Another another lost another one from 2020. Fred Lewis, left fielder for the San Francisco Giants. Sleep on. How about the crime dog? Fred McGriff do the crime dog who totally screwed the Giants, by the way, and, uh, well, there was a 93. Do they breads pick him up and Rocky's couldn't beat him one time anyway to the Niners just real quick again and talking about their fantasy value and whether or not you could, you could pick him up or if you're monitoring matchups from defense. For the postseason. 40 Niners Right now in Yahoo fantasy leagues only owned in 38% of leaks was I told you they've been susceptible to give it up points. And I think even if you picked him up this week, and this would be the week to do it before people kind of get hip to the fact that they may have AH, decent schedule for week 13 against Washington Week 14 against Dallas, This would be the week to pick them up only 38%, a legion, Yahoo! And one thing to consider as well. In talking about Washington. You said Alex, Miss, not the same guy agreed. They throw the ball a lot. They've been thrown a lot more with Alex Smith. They've been far more effective it racking of yards and the yards they could put up concertedly do damage to the to the point total for your defense. When you get a touchdown excuse it all, of course, but I think for their matchups week 15 and 16 Excuse me, 13 and 14. Hi Paula 14 14 and 15. Washington in Dallas, Not bad matchups. And also I'll tell you what, though, but you're right. This is the week to pick that up, because, Hey, man, The bills are an offensive, you know, not powerhouse, but they're pretty damn potent on offense if the Niners even if the Niners lose the game, But Ah, hold the bills, too. I would say under 21 points if it's if it's a low scoring tight game, and, um I think that the statement will be made. Is Josh Talyn is having a hell of a year. And if they can not shut him down, but quiet him. Ah, little bit. And then? Yeah, I think there'll be a big time pick up next week. So this week is the week to grab him and stash him. Bring it on back to build walls Rather be away too early than a week. Too late with this one. Seriously, we're gonna We're gonna take a quick break Tony with some for the other side. I want to talk to you. We were talking big receivers for the Pittsburgh Steelers. What is that? You've got a team now, That really doesn't have any receivers. All right? We gotta talk about this Well, Fuller suspended for the rest of the season. We gotta talk from Houston, Texas Football will come back to the 40. Niners for just a moment, cause I wanna get on Jeff Wilson Junior this week. What to do about this Niner backfield where he most would obviously healthy. He's the Bell cow. He's the guy, But I do think that 40. Niners are gonna try to stay healthy here. They've got to keep some guy's safe. We've also got to talk about Extra players on your roster going into the postseason due to the cove in 19 protocols a lot of people this week right into a tough spot with Lamar Jackson not able to play on a Wednesday and so they didn't have an extra quarterback. And so we're gonna talk about making sure you're backing up your roster short of handcuffing guys as you head to the postseason? Yeah, no question. I also want to get your take on Survivor pool going in because I wanna just get your take on a couple of matchups this weekend. And also daily fantasy versus weekly Venice. I just want to get your take on some of that stuff, because that man, I'm starting to get a little hooked on the daily fantasy tip daily fantasy. Your survivor pools to Shawn Watson, who is he throwing the ball too? And the 40 Niner backfield? All that is coming up..

"Hood, weeknights on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app. Welcome back in it's crisp black Friday and for j hood here till ten o'clock. We're talking before the break about the hall of fame and about bonds and Clemens and I understand Chris. There's a lot of people out there that say valley tug PD's are never going to vote for him. Well, you know, what it wasn't like there were just six guys took PD's back in the day. That's my that's my problem with the whole situation. If you can guarantee me there is nobody in the hall of fame right now. Yeah. That took PD's or any steroids whatsoever. Then I'd say, okay. You kind of make a good point. We shouldn't like guys who did sheet in. But you can't guarantee me that there are guys who are thirty in the hall of fame. Exactly. Therefore, we saw these players be great. The stats makes sense. Everything says these are hall of fame players, you gotta let Roger Clemens in ugali Barry Bonds in Curt Schilling should be in there. I mean, I maybe it's because I'm a little bit younger fried. But I feel like you under. Stand this argument as well that the baseball writers of America are just being ridiculous. I think they are. I mean, they all it's their vote. So I understand it. They don't want to vote for him. They're going to stand on their principles. That's fine. I just think it's wrong. And they will tell me it's wrong to cheat. Why? Who are they to be the moral court -ociety? Well, the thing is that you know, it's not they're the ones that do all the voting. So the baseball writers of America are the ones that do the voting for the hall of fame. So it's it's not major league. Baseball's hall of fame is just a hall of fame. It's a separate entity. And so that makes it a little bit more difficult, and they they can make up the rules, basically. And I know it's not in this conversation. But Pete Rose should be there too. Yeah. I agree. And that's where it's like bothersome to me is I you want to hold this honor. And celebrate players. But then you can't let in scrubbed leg white. You're all you're only going to let jeeter next year. Yeah. They'll. If it's cheater who else. Larry Walker you're gonna put him in. He doesn't make the hall of fame. He's a hall of Famer Jeff Kent in there. You go down the list. I mean, the funny thing is people have an argument for everybody. I heard arguments over the last couple of weeks on MLB MLB network. I've heard arguments for Jeff Kent. I've actually was either they did a one hour special about the hall of fame and the one guy the they each pick the guy Bob Costas pick the guy they all pick the guy that they thought belonged in and the one guy. Can't remember who it was? I don't think it was Verduci with somebody else. But they said Jeff Kent was the guy that should be in. Because if you looked at his numbers what he did during his time as a second baseman and the numbers he put up people long to be he deserved to be there. And I it gets the whole thing about hall of fame and hall of very good. And when I was watching guys play all the way from what I was a kid watching these guys play what seeing the Yankees come into town and things like that. When you see guys youth Shaw guy said he's all a famous now, Omar Vizquel is a really good defensive player. He's a double a manager for the White Sox now. And I would not be surprised if in a couple of years, he's the manager of the White Sox. But Omar Vizquel does not belong in the hall of fame. Just like I didn't think is he Smith belong in the hall of fame a couple of years ago. Ozzie Smith got. In the hall of fame because of his great fielding ability. He didn't hit it all. Was was he the best shortstop of all time? Some people would think so, but he got votes, and he got enough and he's in more power to them. The arguments are great because they go on for weeks and in the long run. It doesn't really matter. I mean guy gets a plaque. And when I went there, the one thing I have to go back to the hall of fame because what I went zip through in several hours. I couldn't care less about going to see the hall is all it is is looking at their plaques know, the guy you're gonna sit and read each plaque. All the way air, you traveled. All the way there. You're not going to read a little. It isn't a whole other museum. How long did it? Take the drive there. Boy, eight nine hours so you had eight nine hours to drive there. But you didn't have fifteen minutes and stay in and read the black. I can read the plaques. It's not interesting. Not interesting. You're looking at. Here's Ernie bay. No. But the rest of the the rest of the museum is because they have some interactive stuff, and they have sound of the first games on radio video they show you when I get there. They have a lot of other things they have a whole Babe Ruth area. Madagascar's you were talking today in the Babe Ruth exhibit. They have babe. Ruth's people, you know, before cell phones. He had his Babe Ruth address. Book was opened up to the pager. He wrote in Lou Gehrig's name address phone number. Up school little stuff like that. And you know, the ball and the ball that was hit here the glove that was used to make this catch and those kind of things those are all I like those as opposed to here's a here's a picture. Here's a plaque of, you know, Ernie banks, and he hit this running homers and all this other stuff. I don't like the idea of you driving nine hours to not have fifteen minutes to read a plateau. We continue. Well, then then little little did. I know that just about twenty five minutes away from Cooperstown used to be the soccer hall of fame. My wife sat in the lobby is Iran through because she says really stop for this. So smart, right? She came into the baseball hall of fame with me. But yeah. So the hall of fame, it's interesting. We're already talking Paul Kirk eligible next year. Now polka-dot great stuff for White Sox fans is the world champion. But I don't know that he's anywhere close to me in a hall of fame hall of Famer. And I don't think he is either Mark is going to be up soon to early. Well, here's a guy that won a game in the World Series saved game of the World Series. Headed perfect games. No hitters. He's he's a guy that you would definitely have some interest in. But again, you see some of these other guys, you know, he's not seven time Cy Young winner. No, again, you know, the only thing Mark rarely ever did was probably was drink beers in the in the clubhouse. And then they call them into you know, to relieve in the World Series, and they've told that story so the hall of fame conversations fun. I know it gets interesting. I just hate when they say, well, this is this guy's last year on the ballot. Will he get in? Well, we didn't get in the first four years. I shouldn't get in this year. Yeah. And that's my whole my biggest thing. And like you were saying you pretty much know there are hall of famers or they're not hall of famers their numbers. Never get any better. If they can't get in the first ballot. They shouldn't get it at all. That's just the way. I feel. I've always felt that way. I mean from the first time, I remember I thought he didn't get in. My dad would tell me doll. He gets another chance and another chance, and he gets all. But nothing changed. Yeah. And you know, what I don't quite understand about that is I I do understand someone saying well we want to make. The pitch. We want to make the case for Jeff Kent. Right. That was the example that you just gave right? That makes sense to me. But the hall of fame doesn't creep up on anybody like their entire careers there to let you know, whether or not there hall of fame worthy or not by the time. They get to this point the one year the first year on whether you you are a hall of Famer not that's enough time. Why do we need more time after the career Reiger out five years later if this guy can actually be Famer after being on the ballot for six years, right? That that to me doesn't make any sense because we know that this is coming if you weren't good enough as a player, the very very good dilutes your hall of fame. Maybe there should be very good. But that's what bothers me about the whole conversation is I feel like people are too liberal and giving out their hall of fame nominations to people. It should be the very best. If you really should. And if you're not the very best at that particular time playing that sport, you don't get into my hall of fame because because you know, you're not the very best. I mean, Fred McGriff, the one argument about Fred McGriff, and I kind of chuckled when I heard Fred McGriff named for hall of fame consideration. But the one thing people said was Fred McGriff has numbers for home runs were even with all of the the big star players like in the upper thirties. And then all of a sudden those people jumped up to fifty and sixty the upper thirties. He never did. Apparently never was caught was never in any of the reports or anything like that. So he got hosed. Okay. So that made me think, well, maybe when you think of that, maybe if you look at it that way, maybe a Fred McGriff by deserve it. How about some comparisons for war? His war was fifty two point six may Ramirez is sixty nine point four. Jeff Kent was fifty five point four Scott Rolen was seventy point to was that high. Hi, any of those guys a hall of Famer though. Mcgriff based on those stats. Yeah. The other guys past him up based on other guys who are on the ballot. Todd Helton was sixty one point two Gary Sheffield, sixty point five Sammy Sosa fifty eight point six nine that's a name that you could probably look at the to Fred McGriff and Sammy Sosa and say so surpassed McGriff based on outside right outside his Flintstone vitamins. Neither are a hall of Famer my my eyes. I mean, even look at Andrew Jones, sixty two point eight warford's career. He was a great great center fielder, ugly. The best center fielder of his generation. I don't think just being a great center fielder makes him a hall of fame player. That's where you're kind of boils down to the difference between the two is like, listen, all very good. There are a lot of guys get there. And that's fantastic. It's just not everyone's a hall of Famer. And I think Barry Bonds Roger Clemens they will get in at some point is probably going to be next year. Just because the guys who also are up for the ballot. They're not that impressive. Right. Derrick jeeter. He'll he'll be I bel-. You will. Yeah. He'll probably likely get one hundred percent, so close won't it. I I would think so I would think so I mean what you have to say against him. And see the thing about it though. He was an all around player. He wasn't like he wasn't your babies, Michelle. He wasn't. He. Championships. Yeah. He was there every day. He played great shortstop for a majority of his career. I could I could see again close. Yeah. It and it's funny..

"Mark embarrassed. Oh, good to have you Mark. How are you? Are you doing good? These these hall of fame voters are stupid seriously. I if the crime dog is not a hall of Famer, the who the heck is that guy hit thirty five or forty bombs every year never associated with PD's. I mean, the guy had his own instruction video for Pete's sake. And if a curse breaking bloody sock is in the hall of fame. And Curt Schilling is not what the heck Rome. Swimming pool technician nation coaching vacation 'cause we get a lot of vacation. Now, I'm done. You got it. Nice to have you on a love the crime dog. If you're an old school listener of this program, you know, dead. Fred McGriff used to come on the show a lot. I love McGriff. You know, the argument though, that if you have to make an argument for a guy they shouldn't be in the hall of fame. I'm not saying he shouldn't. I'm just saying if you have to make the argument, then they probably don't belong in the whole argument also being it's the hall of fame not very good. But he is right there. He is right there. Let's see. Ask the pros Lauren from Long Island asks Jim how hard is it to take your show on the road? We aren't seeing it on TV. So can you set the scene for what's going on down at Torrey is taking the junk on the road, something we're going to see more of in the future Lauren from Long Island. That is a great question. That's a really good question. In terms of what's it like to take on the road? It's awesome. It's great to be on the road. It's great to get out there. And pressed the flesh, it's great to see people have access to interviews with people that ordinarily, you only talk to over satellite over the phones like Rex Harvard. I just said that he he's been coming on the show for years. He was actually one of the famous rexes in the wreck streak and we'd ever actually met before in person. And you get a chance to sit down, Pat. Perez to sit down with Charlie Hoffman to sit down with Tony fee now to do that in person. It's awesome. You know, there are other alternatives. Invariables we've taken the thing on the show or taking the show on the road. But the positives far outweigh the negatives. And they're almost no negatives. At all in terms of we see more of it. You kind of answer your question. The reason we don't do it more is because I have a TV show. TV component the TV aspect of it does not travel as well. We're not on TV today. The reason we're not on TV today is because we're doing this remote. So the reason I don't do more of this is because I've always had a TV show. I've always had two shows every single day and the TV showed us not travel. The show's not as mobile as the radio show is. But if you wanna know if.

"Hundred fifty runs batted in. So he had a better he had better offense of numbers than Edgar Martinez. I hate to say this you had better offense numbers of your Martinez. I understand that. But I I wanna say this. And I think you might disagree with this. But the fact that he was a journeyman really hurts maybe but his numbers speak for themselves. But he played for the Blue Jays. Then the Padres then the Braves and back, then the Devil Rays and the cubs and the dodgers and back to the Devil Rays. You don't see a lot of journeyman in the hall of fame. I think that hurts him. Yeah. I mean, he put for a couple of different teams. But. Yeah. I don't know, man. Like, I'm just pointing those out. I think that's aren't there. Other players that are in the hall fame that put for teams. Mike Piazza for I'll look dodgers Mets. I can't remember the only to is it. I don't remember him being a journeyman. Are we saw when I was younger always his name was pizza. Nikolai? Oh, he played for the Marlins the Mets the Padres in the as well. Teams. Yeah. But he had before like at the end of his career. He went to two different teams. But like he was on the Mets for seven years. He was on the daughters. Five years. It wasn't like. For Fred McGriff the last three teams you put for one year. You know, what I think hurts, but that's like kind of ridiculous. The I don't know you play for all the teams a major base long numbers are longest stint was only four years for one team. And that's about the Blue Jays and the Braves, and then it's only he was a big part of that World Series winning team for the Braves. Oh, I completely agree with and a big part of the raise in the nineties in general like they made the World Series. How many times three times with Fred McGriff too many times account is losing the Yankees? But the Yankees once they lost to the Blue Jays lost more than once the Yankees the Braves. Yeah. In the World Series. I think they also them one. They beat the Indians they lost to the Yankees. They lost to Toronto. Lost the Yankees twice. I know that. Sure. I'm gonna look this up. Anyways, McGriff should have been in. I think he'll get in. You know after they. Well, he's the last time. Yeah. But like Harold Baines got in. What are they? All the other veterans. I think they got swept the Braves twinkies and ninety nine. Yes. They did. They lost them ninety five or ninety six. So they did loose them twice. But he wasn't a part of that team. Yeah. But still I'm just pointing out the facts, but I'm saying that these guys who are all in not on a team for a long period of time like on those t- on his main others to maintains the Mets and dodgers for a long time over five years, and he was on there for less than four for. Team. I don't think I don't think any of that. Really hurts him to be on a steel. I I don't it's hard to see a lot of journeyman almost five hundred home runs. I'm not taking anything from. I'm just I'm just trying to think I'm playing devil's advocate here. I'm trying to figure out the news. I want to hear an argument. Why Edgar Martinez is a hall of Famer. But Fred McGriff is not like I'm ready for that argument. Yeah. I can't. And if all you can say or if all anyone can say is well he played with one team. Okay. You know what? I mean. Like, I'm gonna I'm gonna say that his getting is better. I'm not even gonna agree with myself. And then he was on the two thousand one Mariners that had one hundred sixteen wins that didn't win the World Series though. Yeah. And McGriff played. That's why that's why. That's why disagreed with myself. Right. Right. Right. I know but McGriff. I mean, we're talking about a dude who won World Series..

But still I'm just pointing out the facts, but I'm saying that these guys who are all in not on a team for a long period of time like on those t- on his main others to maintains the Mets in dodgers for a long time over five years, and he was on there for less than four team. I don't think I honestly don't think any of that really hurts him to be on a steel. I just pointed. I don't it's hard to see a lot of journeyman almost five hundred home runs. I'm not taking anything from. I'm just I'm just trying to think I'm playing devil's advocate here. I'm trying to figure out in the news. I want to hear an argument. Why Edgar Martinez is a hall of Famer. But Fred McGriff is not like I'm ready for that argument. Yeah. I can't all you can say or if all anyone can say is. He played with one team. Okay. You know what? I mean. Like, I'm gonna I'm gonna say that. And getting is better. I'm not even gonna agree with myself. And then he was on the two thousand one Mariners that had one hundred sixteen wins that didn't win the World Series though. Yeah. And McGriff played. That's why that's why. That's why say disagreed with myself. Right. Right. Right. I know but McGriff. I mean, we're talking about a dude who won World Series..

"News time six thirty two four six hundred w RTC ninety two point one FM the iheart radio app. The home of your university of Memphis Tigers tomorrow night, six o'clock tip off on the road against temple. And your pregame starts at five. So baseball hall of fame yesterday. I saw the result of the first ever unanimous selection in the hall of fame still kind of a head scratcher that it has taken so long, but very worthy unanimous selection at that in New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera with him. It was basically game over when he came in. Yeah. Oh, I think he at he's definitely hall of fame material funny to think though, he's one hundred percent you look at the names start going to the list of names that are in the hall of fame. And he's the first to get one hundred percent. Yeah. How how do you not have Hank? Aaron hundred percent Babe Ruth one hundred percent Willie Mays hundred percent one Ryan. I mean, I'm, you know, even even more current. I mean, it's just. Pretty crazy to think about that Rivera's the first, but congratulations Sam he's deserving of it. Yep. It he he is going to be joined by others in their ROY halladay will be in there. And he is a he's being put in posthumously. He died in a plane crash a little bit. Pitch for sixteen years two Cy Young awards one two hundred and three games and. He got eighty five percent of the vote. Being to be a buzzkill. But I mean, I I I mean he was. What you're saying? Is if he's alive he doesn't get in. Yeah. Pete rose. Does he belong in the fame hall of fame? Yeah. Because it's not it's not the hall of the high integrity. I agree. I agree. Totally even though he probably doesn't want to be in the hall of fame. He makes more money and gets more notoriety being shunned might be seena gets in. He went two hundred seventy games. I think he's a better. He's a better fit there. He was very good playoff pitcher. Pitched over thirty five hundred innings and then also Edgar Martinez the designated hitter. For most of his career. He hit three twelve and had three hundred and nine home runs over parts of eighteen seasons. He got eighty five percent of the vote again. I I have mixed feelings about. Mixed feelings about that getting shutout was Roger Clemens Curt Schilling Barry Bonds, Fred McGriff who had over four hundred home runs in his career Clemens. Get shut out because of the steroids. Yeah. Schilling get shut out because he's outspoken. Yeah. He's found himself, you know, because he believes in certain things and he's found himself leaning toward the right? And he says things and it got him as an outcast. I would not I would not disagree with that. And then you've got Larry Walker actually got over fifty percent out of the blue. That was a big jump for him. Other than that looking at the votes. Let's see if anybody got one. I'm looking at all the people that voted for everybody. Hunk two votes. He played for the redbirds here any played multiple positions for like two or three years. Coupla beat writers that like the vote for ROY owes Walt who was a cousin of mine through marriage got four votes. It's Berkman got five. How does? Get two votes. That's like when Jim Hall of fame vote years ago. Do you remember you may remember we got like Ryder in San Diego's like what the heck I'll do right now. He can go around and say, you know, hall of fame nominee Jim dish. I think he had a losing record. But you know, what there's that hall of fame list of voters back in the old days. I think it's become a little more modernized. We're so stuffy. That's pretty funny. But congratulations to all that got enough about holiday with a great pitcher. I just don't know if he was hall of fame and that. Yeah. Well, he's there. He's in. He's in. I'm not he's there. Others other notable Scott Rolen who had played with the cardinals for a brief period of time. Get seventy three votes who he got seventeen percent of the vote Andy Pettitte got like ten percent of the vote. Sammy Sosa got nine percents. And I think that's all you need to know about baseball. But yeah, congratulations for are getting in schilling was the one left out with the most..

"As you know, how a day. The late today. Eighty five percent and Edgar Martinez. Eighty five percent and Mike Mussina no surprise to me anyway. But nonetheless in in need seventy five percent, he got seventy six point seven percent Andy Pettitte got nine point nine percent staying on the ballot for another year barrel aid, and the b twelve rocket barely up at all. What a shame. There at fifty nine percent last year, the b twelve rock got fifty seven percent last year. Barreled got fifty six percent. And Curt Schilling got sixty percent this time around Manny Ramirez from Washington heights wide. Manny with twenty two percent, Gary Sheffield with the thirteen percent hit the ball, very hard. We know from that, Billy Wagner. Sixteen percent. Jeff canned eighteen percent and mentioned earlier the Tom Lugt.

So you can surmise and it makes sense Walker and chilling on track for twenty twenty induction day. And while we walk is. I'd say plus eighty eight Fred McGriff the crime dog plus seventy one to thirty nine point eight percent and chilling again, plus forty three to sixty point nine percent. So just a little bit with the updating but Rivera and Halliday and Edgar Martinez and moose seen from the class making up the class of twenty nine teen. And of course, a hundred percent of with class on and off the field didn't show. No mouthpiece Jimmy from him. And I know I'm going to hear Ono the warriors of today's team.

And I and I think we'll let me think about that. For a second. I had a third team. And I lost my thought what is that third team? Oh, yeah. The patriots. How could I forget them? How could I thank you so much on the other side of the glass, Tom and Polly the patriots? How could I listen? And and more than the Yankees, by the way and more with the evil empire.

I mean, it just seems. Well, sure, you have to be around a long time for that. I mean, I workhorse does one hundred eighty innings these, you know, now, you know, a guy pitcher seven innings, and he's not even involved in the decision at the end of the game.

I curse is only got what a hundred and forty ones maybe now. Well and worthy of the hall of fame is. Yeah, he is. But again, maybe he doesn't want two hundred.

"Baseball hall of fame significantly Rivera becomes the first person ever to be a unanimous selection. So to help us break down. What all of it means ESPN's ten Kirk Shas joined Tim Kirch in I can speak to him joins us in studio. Giving us the straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts. We get our first unanimous hall of Famer why now well because I think in part because social media is such now and all the ballots are public pretty much that if you don't vote for him, you're going to get clobbered, that's one reason. The biggest reason is he's the greatest closer. Of all time. There is not a close second on the character scale. No one's better than him. As far as postseason goes, no pitcher may be ever has been better than him. And you just put everything together on how he dominated that position. And I'm just so happy that somebody finally got in unanimously, and we don't have to talk about that all the time anymore well to play devil's advocate and because we haven't moved on yet. And we still have to talk about it. There are people on social media arguing that letting Marianna Rivera and on the first ballot unanimously somehow degrades the memory or honor of someone like Babe Ruth or Hank Aaron who didn't get in. I know my answer. But I think you'll say it best him. Why are those people flat out wrong? Well, look to no one saying that Marianna Rivera is better than Willie Mays in a baseball career because Willie Mays one of the two greatest players of all time for me how ever to compound the mistake continually and say, well, we didn't vote maze. Or Aaron and unanimously or anyone else doesn't seem to make any sense. And the reason he got in again is just because dominant. He was at the best at the biggest possible times. So there are different levels to every club that there is and in the hall of fame, especially we have a hall of famers with C minus hall of famers, Marianna Rivera is now historic as one hundred percent. I think it's about time. It happened to somebody. We're talking to ESPN's Tim Kirkman in studio giving us the straight talk. So does this start like an trend over the next few years? Do you think we'll see more of this players just you jeeter's up next year? So we're gonna see more unanimous hall of famers in your mind. I would say we're not going to see more maybe one more somewhere along the line. But not many more next year. Someone will make a point that Derrick jeeter wasn't as good defensively as number showed, which is preposterous. He should be. He should be a first ballot unanimous hall of Famer also to me is one of the three. Greatest shortstops of all time played the way he did for twenty years. But yes, someone always has Renou. I must say over the years. I've seen friends of mine. I would never do this who do not vote for somebody who they know is getting in, but ballot management is so difficult to do that you say I wanna make sure Lance Berkman, for instance, stays on the ballot for another year. I wanna give Fred McGriff one last shot in his final year. Again, I wouldn't do that. But I actually understand the thinking that Mariano Rivera doesn't need my help to get in. But Fred McGriff, does some people think that way, and I understand it..

"O'clock east coast time. Good to have you with us. I'm Chris more. Indeed. And we'll be here till two when Tony Tony pops in here. For top notch. Entertainment. Sensibly priced Brian Kennedy hall of fame. Ballot just came out. Wow. Brian Kennedy who I like a lot a. Everybody in the pool guy. So he's taken everybody. But I hate the hall of fame in all halls of fame as a sports talk topic. And I only bring it up because it's the first tweet on my tweets right now. In other words, I opened my page. And it's the first thing I saw. So I will read it to you quickly just because people follow Brian, and I like, Brian, and I like the MLB network. And I love his passion. Passion. Is you kids out there? Trying to be whatever you're trying to be have the passion that Brian Kenny has you'll be fine. He has Andrew Martinez. Fred mcgriff.

So there you go. But we're not talking about that right now we're talking about football coming off of yesterday. And we're going back to the phones Robin freeport up next on the fan up. Hey, how's it going good? What's up? Hey, I agree with you that OT is not perfect. It was a lot better than it used to be with just the field goal wins it, but I just don't like when people like like bash stuff, but don't have a solution. So what's your solution? Because even bashing all time ten minutes. Ten minutes. Ten minutes. Ten minutes play for ten minutes. And yeah. Regulation football ten minutes in the playoffs. So whoever clever way into the field goal wins. No, no over. No sudden death. Oh, so only in the playoffs. Then correct. Correct. Okay. So it's ten minutes at the end of ten minutes, whoever whoever won the ten minutes. So it's it's like a fifth quarter quarter in a way. Okay. Yeah. Okay. That's all I got. There you go Iran. Rochester is next on the fan high IRA ally ya. Good. What's fascinating about this? I see misunderstanding. What people doing they bring things? Previous in the game. Not trying to take absolve the thing that happened last. I think it just putting percentages on what the blame. Baseball example is to close it gives up a two run home or lose the game. But but previous to that they could have had they blew five or they could have had five hundred third in this guy. Struck out in the sticks. Generally, we blame five different sectors. It could be five different factors. This one was thirty five percent and the had a tribute to percents. But this guy was thirty five percent responsible to closer, obviously is very responsible. And in this case, the referee is responsible. But there were other things that happened in the game including drew Brees terrible in the last quarter there. That's right. And so. Factors. On trying to win you over to my side. What I'm trying to tell you is. I don't look at it that way, I'm not saying that you can't or that you shouldn't unless you're saying even in the case of a relief, you'd blame the the closer. Absolutely. I think the game starts with the next batter. Every stinking time. Yes. But you can't it'd be more than one. They're not absolving. Why did your argument was because then you're saying the referees? Don't matter everyone's saying, you can blame the rest re to a certain percent every I think everyone, that's all you. But what's the point? Then then nobody is on the hook you understand that nobody's on the hook man ever know, they're on the hook for ten. Fifty percents of two guys are fifty percents.

They'll still get these calls wrong even with replay. I like the human elements in my game. So I I'm I'm not in favor of that. But I feel like I'm in the minority especially on a day like today where there was a hugely controversial call like this or no call like this. What are your thoughts? Eight five five two one two four CBS Antonio's in New York. He's been holding for a long time. So let's get him in here before we get to the bottom of the hour. Antonio appreciate your patients. How are you? Pretty great. How's everything I'm doing? Good, man. Doing good good to have you on the show lost. I had I want to talk about the cable. I I just wanted to say that McGregor. Not being fame is a disgrace to baseball. I was just looking at his numbers twenty minutes. Guys got like twelve years, we black type with thirty home runs and one hundred RBI is not the hall of fame McGrath's into the bombing. The major league baseball one with Clemens bonds, and and Gary Sheffield progress should be in the hall of fame disgrace that he's LOL sainthood especially with the same as last year on the on the ballot. He should have been I Aldea I found friend and then with the game. You know, what I mean, you know, what that's why you live manning. So great because you know, you've got guys like Rogers and brings Katie. Playoff games. Got a guy like e WI fi guy one to NFC game on the roadway. A ball playing in weather under twenty degrees. Believably then he gets to the Super Bowl and three speech. Tom Brady twice. I mean, you guys. Out of the top five quarterback in the history of the league. Without a doubt, Sean you and I was taking. Thanks Antonio first of all let me say Antonio. I love your enthusiasm. I disagree with almost everything you said in that phone, call my brother, you're free to call this show anytime, I love your enthusiasm. Love New York. Ally. Manning is not a top five quarterback of all time. Manning's deserves respect for those two postseason runs ally. Manning deserves respect for being the only quarterback to take down Tom Brady in two Super Bowls. Manning deserves respect for being. A good big game quarterback in those two postseason runs. Now. The rest of Eli Manning's body of work is largely average to below average. He was not a great regular season has not been a great regular season quarterback. He's four pro bowls. He's never been close to the conversation of being first or second team. All pro. I mean, never close. So we need to slow down a little bit on that. I'll give you lies do those two Super Bowls. If he gets into the hall of fame is on the strength of those two Super Bowls with probably a little bit of having the last name manning sprinkled in. But no not a top five quarterback of all time. But I understand the love that New York has for you. I so I don't want to discredit that. I get the love that you have for him. As far as Fred McGrath. Man, brother, your barriers are so low for what qualifies his greatness, I won't be fine. Fred McGriff got into the hall of fame. I would I would be totally cool with it. But not a first ballot hall of Famer. And honestly, if he doesn't get in, and whatever honest to me, Fred McGriff is legendary for those of Manzke baseball academy commercials where he had the hat that look like a chef's hat. The trucker hat baseball hat with the mesh background and the gigantic gigantic front face part of the hat and the flat brim. That's Fred McGriff. Great contribution to the game of baseball. Tom Manzke infomercials. Those were beautiful love that. Five five to one two four CBS. Antonio you can call the show anytime brother, don't agree. I don't agree with anything that you said. But but I appreciate your call eight five five two one two four CBS. Hi, if you're on hold stay there. We're open lines. The rest of the way, we have no guests in the final hour of the show. So if you wanna weigh in on anything going on with the football games today feel free to eight five five two one two four CBS patriots. Still with the ball second in nineteen. They're on the fringe of field goal range. So they're trying to put this thing. Back up by a to score lead. That's the big question can this can achieve slow down the patriots in the second half, so far so good.

"Three Fred McGriff is a guarantee hall of Famer how do you look at those numbers year after year after year and the gutters. Even come close. You know, what I think he would hurt him is that all of the advanced metrics and that and that people today look at these. Metrics, and they try to apply to people in the eighties in the early nineties. When metrics were really a thing. And I from what I'm reading about. And this is very little. It's just a lot of double plays. He was a bad base runner. And they're trying to all that stuff in there. They say that a lot about Cantu. Like some of the stuff you here. And it's like calm on. He was a bad guy. That's why he's not getting any bad defensively. But like, I mean, are we serious here? Especially with the guys that are in those guys to me or you look at those I want as a fan as an owner GM, you would tell for consistency. Like that nowadays, you're afraid to give a guy at three or four year deal because you don't know what's going to happen year to year, look at the consistency. So I entirely career. He hit five hundred clean. He's a lock. Also, I gonna understand why seven home runs keep you out. Not only keep you out. He doesn't get that many. Consistently gets like twenty thirty percent of the vote said even closer with soft. So he's not he's not trending up now with that new committee, and otherwise he'll get it. You're probably Jason Johns di-, he'll get it. Yeah. J exact Jason. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty sixty six. I could talk about that stuff all day Bruce in flushing. What's up, Bruce? Hey, sound to Yankee points and hoping pointer I on the Yankees. I don't know why I guess get the feeling the Yankees are gonna pull one more surprise crate. Because. The whole thing of signing oldies and feel. They're up to something. I don't know if they're and talks and Dan. Happen in the cover themselves. But I think I think it may create one more infielder for a picture. I could be wrong. Gimme you talking about. Maybe into her wouldn't even be surprised if Taurus I would be stunned of its Torres. I mean, they wouldn't they said last year basically cash from last year tours untouchable man, then trading them that was when degrom rumors came up as was degrom. I think maybe even Syndergaard at the time, but they said they went out trading tours or he would be untouchable. I would not be surprised though, Bruce if Cashman that something sleeve leave do and then maybe give you a little more playing time. At least it gives them some flexibility to where you think maybe they do want to move and do our first starting pitcher or they feel like there's a good enough deal that they can't pass up. They could do it Beckingham point. There's a picture out there who I think would be perfect for the Yankees to add another starter or somebody in the bullpen quiz, which the bachelor even though I think he's still a little bigger question, Mark. So he's always even before that heart issue came up or whatever it was. He's always been a question, Mark. Anyway. Oh, I mean production healthwise. Yes. He's a question. Marks pitcher GIO Gonzalez. Yeah. I don't mind it. I mean, I wouldn't be opposed to that. Bruce. I I think anytime you add a quality starting pitcher, no jobs all is not a top of the rotation guy. The way that maybe he was with Oakland on the NATs. I got him. But he's a quality starting pitcher who would add depth to any rotation. Same point one Martinez. Definitely should be. And I don't know how you can say couldn't begin. He was. Dominating drive, this entire tenure. He played in big games. Got big base. It was a consistent hundred Nabi three twelve career here. Yeah. You're probably I mean, look, you're probably right. I'm a little hesitant for whatever reason on Edgar. Another guy fan. I don't think deserts have been fame is making a senior very good. Good pitcher. But I'm old school. I won't famous. I mentioned the name, and my gut tells me, yes. Or no part of the problem would only save a metric guys is a personal killing baseball number one to get stolen base the bond and. I think the reason why baseball decline and tennis. Why is it taking strategy the normal play second base no-one playing home play? That's more major league baseball sabermetrics guys. But when saving metric guys applied at rules to all of them. That's how the whole thing is all about the whole thing is was he great now. Well, it's A plus B equals C. That's am. I know. I agree. Bruce, thanks for the call. I think you now with a lot of stuff right there. Also, I agree with how he was a good pitcher great at sometimes he's not a whole fame pitcher. I vote for Andy Pettitte before I voted for Mike mainly because we're PETA did well mainly, obviously because what PETA did and the postseason, but Messina's a great that against them. It's not a whole Famer. I mean, come on as I said, I'm voting for either. But I would vote for any pet it before I voted for Mike. I think I'm dumb with my bowel. We'll wrap that up on the other side and also get into obviously championship.

Well, I mean for those in our audience who mainly follow thoroughbred racing. They can understand the physical toll of riding on the back of a twelve hundred pound animal running at forty miles an hour. What kind of physical toll? Does it take to ride in a standard bred race?

You know? And I know them guys are usually small, but they got to put a lot of work, you know, and I and I respect that they do in. I'm sure they respect what we do. None of that is difficult is raising teenager. I can commiserate with that part of your life that up starting to learn and guess what? My Dell notebook parenting upon kind of like last three sisters, and I'm brush, she's like, she's like this think you're easy. And he's a boy, you know, and she's like this magic was with me and your three sisters, which I remember it wasn't easy. We are chatting. With harness racing driver. Erin merriman. He just completed the second of back to back thousand wind seasons and unprecedented feat. In that sport. He has more than ten thousand winds overall now in stick and ball sports when it comes to the popular sports argument of which players belong in their respective halls of fame. And which don't you often hear the criticism? He's just a compiler when it comes to statistics compiler would be someone who doesn't necessarily dominate his or her sport. But nonetheless has a long career and runs up lots of juicy stats to merit consideration. Fred McGriff in baseball comes to mind. Maybe John stallworth and football in thoroughbred racing. That would be Russell Baze. The all time leader in thoroughbred wins by a jockey. But among those are just five grade one wins five so for you. Let's face it the meadows. Enorthfield parker. Not exactly the sport's biggest stages. How do you feel about not participating? On the so-called.

"Let's see Rubin in queens. What's up? How you doing Mike what's up quickly? When Chad came to the Yankees, one of the teams he said he was gonna go to dodge the only team that one of the teams the yes. I'm just dreaming. Maybe you know, the dodgers are looking for a big time. Eta? Okay. And we're talking about maybe maybe Staten can go there. I would look I have not heard one word from anybody that the Yankees are even talking about trading Stanton. You on that? And the Yankees have said that they have no interest in hopper. One more thing. My four games later. Right. Yes weekend. Okay. I don't know. If I am not. I don't really worry about you. If I am. I if I don't I don't I mean, that's it. Regular season. I'm well aware of. I know I'm terrible regular season. Maybe I will. Maybe it. We'll see. I had no luck this year. A lot of bad breaks this year. But doesn't matter, you know. And it's it's the bottom line. You can't cry over spilt milk. Jerry, massapequa, what's up, Jerry? What's up, Mike? The qualifying comfortable talking about it and know. The writers open themselves up for major scrutiny as it is. But now when they release their ballots on Twitter and stuff like that. You have a bunch of guys like especially Ken Rosenthal, releasing their ballots on Twitter, and let me preface by say, I think all the steroid guy should get in bonds. But when they released their are starting to vote for guys like bar the Clements, but then then leaving Manny Ramirez, it just opposite out for how could you leave off? Probably the best right here. The hitter of I ever base day may be fine. But you can't just pick and choose or whatever. Badly. That is a very listen. If their argument is we're going to start with the creme de LA creme here. Okay. Manny Ramirez is not Barry Bonds. Barry Bonds is the second greatest player. Of all time. No doubt. Okay. So there's no argument there, we know that. So even Manny Ramirez who I agree with you is a lock solid stone law hall of Famer one of the greatest hitters I've ever seen. So I agree with you. He's a hall of Famer, but he's not as good as Barry Bonds. So if they want to start with Clemens and bonds to open the door, maybe they feel that's the way to not be scrutinized as the open the door with those two who are no one can argue those two hall of famous. Okay. Anyone who watch Roger Clemens pitch? Anyone who watched Barry Bonds hit knows their hall of famers. We know that. So that's my whole point of it open when you're gonna put guys in like McGrath and Messina and I'm a diehard Yankee fan at the time in Baltimore. But. Says you have to put all these guys in the for same. Just putting the guy. So you believe a hall of Famer. That's it. That's you. Can't you can't exclude and say I maybe next year we'll vote Manny was they get in. Layering that because listen there are guys there. I mean Sammy Sosa should be in the hall of fame. Yeah. I mean, so, you know, all these guys. Yeah. Those guys who are out only because of steroids. So I agree with you. Now, I don't know that they have to put everybody in the same time. So I I don't know if I agree with you that that's the case they're probably trying to put towing the water and move it along once one guy gets in opens the door though. I agree. I think that's that'll be the end of it. Mike in Manila, what's up, Mike? Hey, how you doing? Mike is everything going what's happening? Just a quick point on the hall of fame. I get to hold the Martinez deal. You know, but he's gonna put a guy like Agassi Martinez in there were two other guys, you know, me being fan. First of all manically stats are just. No. That's not true. It's not true. Mike, look, Mike, look up this statue dominant. Who had a better dominant diamond listen, I love Manley's not a hall of Famer. And what about Fred McGriff, Mike? Is in for Fred, McGrath's borderline. But US me who's a better hit 'em Martinez. A Fred McGriff Martinez was a better hitter. I know I'm seeing that's why I'm saying you're putting stats because that's when Martinez did getting in. The h he didn't end because he was a terrific hitter. That's why he's getting. I know. But I I understand that. But I'm talking about Mattingly Martinez. Manningly does not have enough numbers. He didn't do it long enough. He had twenty one hundred hits. He's not enough. You know what? There are certain numbers that are over the top numbers certain numbers. He doesn't have them. He does not have because the second half of his career. He did he had a bad back. So I understand he had a bad back. If you go by the first half of his career, he be a hall of Famer the second half of his career. He does not get in. I mean, this is a way around it. He doesn't listen. I agree. He listen. I manning Lee played well enough. I is his career as a lock hall of fame of the problem is he started hitting nine home is in heaven fifty RBI's. Those years are going to see well end up killing him. You know? I mean, Ed gets numbers. You know? He he did it for a very long time. I understand he's a D H. He did it for a very long time. No one has a rule. There's no rule says the can't get in the hall of fame. And and big Papi's gonna get in the hall of fame. You know? Because big Papi, not only has big numbers. But he also has the best postseason numbers of all time. I mean, there's nobody who has there's nobody who has posted his numbers. Like big Papi. The numbers are insane. Teen is at three hundred nine home is. Three twelve as a right handed hitter. That is a made over eighteen years had twelve hundred and sixty Rb is okay. One two three four five six seven times. He had one hundred I'll be is. It's Rian six home runs. Hit three twelve. I mean, that's a very solid career. You really did. And he was a great clutch hitter. So he was a really good head. I mean, the guy at nine thirty three oh PS for his career. Know, he. Is lifetime on base percentage was four eighteen. Sensational. And the guy hit three twelve in his on base percentage was flake eighteen for his career. I mean, that's that's that's outrageous. Not many players have four eighteen on base percentages for their career. Ame scored twelve hundred runs scored knocked in twelve hundred runs hit three home runs. Hit three twelve at a four hundred on base percentage. I mean, he's a very good player. And to me he's right on the cost that he's in. But he's not in by a lot. But three twelve right handed hitter makes them one of the best tennis since World War Two has a right handed hitter. There aren't that many guys James in Brooklyn, what's up James, Mike, happy new year. What's up, Mike? I got a great question for you. But it's not to my the greatest sports host talk show guy that we've ever heard I love this is you will like going out for the five, Mike. My question is because everybody's talking about it. Mike you mount Rushmore. We're going out for a beer afterwards. Nobody's listening. You're much more for players that you believe did page that are in the baseball hall of fame. I have no idea. I wouldn't even waste my time with that. I really wouldn't. I don't care. I don't care to speculate. I really don't. I just don't care. I gotta be honest with you. It's not something. I spend two minutes on listen. I know there are a lot of players. I sat with baseball players. For years. Told me you have no idea. How many players have steroids? I don't know how many he, but he speculated it was a lot. And I'm sure they were plenty that dabbled because you know, what they knew it could make them better. And when you're when you're in a position, and you're in a competition where everything is based on performance, and you have a way to get an edge on performance that can make you money and also make get you fame and fortune. There are a lot of people who are going to succumb to that temptation. And that's why they do such severe drug testing at the Olympics. Because the temptation to use drugs to enhance performance is outrageously strong. That's why they do. The same thing with baseball. The you have. I mean, you're trying to stay first of all in the major leagues you're trying to succeed in the major leagues trying to play at the highest level. If that can give you just a little edge. Supposedly bonds was going along and saying, you know, what? These guys are getting all this stuff. And I know they're doing this stuff. I'm going to look into it. And then he started taking it and he started taking into put him over the top. So be it. It was a great play before he went to. He went to a Ruthene stage. He went to a stage. No one else ever went to. So I'm not going to sit here and speculate who didn't who didn't I have no idea. Would I be surprised about anybody? Yeah. A couple of guys I'd be surprised about but very few. I.
