"Eric Hosmer. It was just cool. It just felt like a wall was falling. You know, that there was this openness to this that we don't associate with this sport. In terms of the openness, Tim, it does also sort of demand that we address a lot of the doubts that have been sort of around Gabe kapler beyond just, oh man, he really messed it up in Philly because I understand also that there has been reporting about his time with the Dodgers when he was in their front office that would suggest that this guy that you're describing now is not necessarily the person you'd assume would be great at managing delicate situations. That's very true. He had situations with the Dodgers when he was the player development guy where the initial incident happened at a hotel during spring training, an underage girl reported to her grandmother that she had been partying with some Dodgers minor leaguers and other women, older women, and that two of these women had assaulted her. Well, the grandmother contacted Kepler, who immediately contacted his superiors and the Dodgers legal team about this. It came to him everyone agrees as a physical assault. A week later, there was some reporting that indicated there might have been an attempt for the family to get some money from the Dodgers. She changed and said that she had been sexually assaulted. Well, in that week's time when it was a physical assault prior to it being a sexual assault, Kepler made the questionable decision to bring the players and this girl together at a dinner. And he would moderate it. His claim was that the players wanted to apologize to her. And he thought this was a way to settle it and to make sure that everybody was okay with it because at that time the victim did not want to go to the police. There was later an incident where a minor league player was said to have a sexually assaulted a hotel maid and neither case did kappler go to the police in both cases. He says that he was honoring the victims their wishes. But what happened is that there were people within the Dodgers who wanted to make a point of this and to point out Kepler as somebody who should have done more. Here's inaugural press conference in San Francisco was in many ways a referendum on his character. I mean, he was just peppered with questions about what happened with the Dodgers in Arizona. Going back to the 2015 incidents. You said you sought out where you should have sold out experts opinions on what to do. What was the next step that you should have done? Openly and directly, I wasn't prepared to facilitate anything. I wasn't prepared to be as supportive to the victims as I could have been. And perhaps even.

"Spent all of this time around the San Francisco Giants. You've gotten to see it from the inside out. What a game Kepler's players think of him now. It's funny because they like him. They think that his communication skills are beyond anything they've ever dealt with in the major leagues. And they are amused by him. They are amused by all the same things that we're amused by, but they allow him to be himself, is he allows them to be themselves. So I think the dynamic in there, you talk to guys who have been at other places, talk to jock Peterson briefly about it. And he said, you know, it's a liberating to come into that Clubhouse because you've got guys welcoming you, not envious of you and not resenting you because you're going to take their at bats. You've got this coaching staff that is really fascinating, coaching staff. There are 13 coaches more than any other team in the big leagues. And that was a capler designed decision. You know, he's got Alyssa knock in the first female coach in major league history who has a big voice in that room. He has only one other coach, Andrew Bailey, who has any appreciable major league experience. Only Kepler and Bailey. And none of these people were friends of Kepler before he hired them. Wait, wait, wait, wait, so he didn't know the people that he ended up sort of staking his career on, all 13 of them? Exactly. I mean, he had heard about them, but he met them in the interview process. And his credo is that he wants a group, not necessarily a team of rivals, but a team of diverse opinions. He says it oftentimes a manager like these old time guys were talking about. They'll go into a meeting and they'll discuss everything and it'll end up just everybody agrees with each other and they slap each other on the back and say, go get them. But this is a whole different thing. You know, he has opened up the room to where he wants them to challenge him. And it's sort of that why and is that true that came from the dinner table at the capler house? And how did the first female coach in Major League Baseball history? How did she come to be? One of the people that Gabe kapler hired. Well, Paula Alyssa knocking interviewed for the job. She had been working in the Giants front office and, you know, she saw that what kind of jobs were available on this coaching staff. There were quite a few of them. And she threw her name out there and she interviewed and Kepler said that she killed the interview that there was nothing about her being a woman that got her the job. It was that she was the most prepared person to fit into that role. She is in uniform. She's in the dugout. She's out on the field during batting practice. She's given tips. She's kind of kind of a chief of staff. She's just runs the coach's room. She's aware of everything she's got really strong observational skills. She just brings a different mentality to the job. And the players have gotten to the point where I don't, I mean, like they don't even, she's just on the team, right? She's just part of them. They're really cool moment earlier this year too when Antoine Richardson, the Giants first base coach, got.

"Part of the human side too, I mean, let's be fair to the humans across the way in the opposite dugout, Tim. They haven't been huge fans of how Gabe capler is mad. Has decided to work itself out here. No, no, he's brought a different definitely a different edge to late game blowouts and the whole topic of unwritten rules and baseball. Frankly, he just told his team during spring training that he doesn't think they should play by those rules anymore. And he wanted input from them to see what they thought and what it resulted in is a guy who has no problem telling someone to steal 9 one in the 8th inning. Runner goes Bart takes it and there's no throw is Duggar steals it. Well, it's a different game, folks. Oh, yeah, you're right. You never used to see that. For fear, if you did something like that, somebody was going to get drilled. Tim, it sounds on its face like he's trolling people. As opposed to doing something with an actual sort of, I don't know, competitive edge in mind. It does. It does, and I think that Padres manager bob Melvin would agree with you. But I also think that there is, if you listen to his reasoning, he makes a good point. First of all, why should only one team try, right? Like why should the pitcher is trying to get you out? Why should you not use every weapon in your arsenal? If you're a bunter, if you're a good bunner and you would bunt in a tie game in the 8th inning, why wouldn't you up ten to one in the 8th inning? Well, old time baseball people have answers for that because you're gonna get the next guy hurt, but Gabe is also grew up in that time like when he was with the Red Sox, the Yankees and Red Sox and the rays and the Red Sox. They had some battles. I mean, they had bean ball wars. They had fights on the field. It doesn't happen that much anymore. It's not geared to that, managers have kind of taken a step back most of them, not all of them. And decided that, you know, being somebody is not the proper response to a stolen base. The days of Pedro Martinez throwing Don Zimmer to the ground are mostly behind us. Yes. Mostly, and we can sort of pine for those days sometimes, but really, it's not something that he worries that much about it. He doesn't worry that much about the safety of his players. And what his point is is that why should some average reliever be allowed to skate through three innings and save the rest of its team's bullpen just because they're down ten to one. Like why should the Giants decide that they're giving up a competitive advantage to help the other team in essence? When they might have two or three games against that team coming up or that team might be going to play it might be a division rival that's ahead of them, whatever the case is where they go on and he wants their bullpen to be depleted. So he doesn't want that one guy to get three easy innings. He wants to get deeper into it. He wants to see position players out on the mound. You know, he wants to just beat teams so that it lasts two or three days rather than just one. Yeah, I mean, it does raise this question at the end here, Tim of like, what are the stakes now of the experiment that Gabe kapler is running? Because again, best record in all of baseball last year, right? The results justified their process. That's how it tends to work in sports. They were a surprising and now they are respected, but they also, let's keep in mind, they lost to the Dodgers, right? In the divisional series. So what exactly is on the line here, Tim as Gabe kapler has all of these other things still to accomplish? I think he's quietly running a campaign to refute the idea that the manager in baseball is a position that has been devalued. Devalued by analytics by overbearing front office people. I think that he is trying to recast this position as something that does different things than it used to. And by different things, I mean, yes, he's involved in all the analytics decision he's buys in. He's right online with farron zaidi and the whole front office. And yet he sees his job is making sure that the guys in his dugout trust that he's making the right decision for the team and for them at the moment, that these analytics decisions, this process serves a greater good. You can't lose that the side of him that is the communicator and the human, the holistic side of things. Tyler Rogers told me the reliever for the Giants told me an interesting little story about last year and he said, this was when we all kind of decided that we got capler. Rogers came in in a save situation up to runs, Kevin gausman had pitched an incredible game and Dodger Stadium. Two zero giants, bottom of the 9th, Rogers comes in, walk, walk home run, walk off, win for the Dodgers. Allen is hit high and deep to left field. Back on the ball slater and the Dodgers have walked it off against Tyler Rogers. The very next night, the same exact situation and Kepler walks out to the mound like Chuck Norris channeling John Wayne and points out to the bullpen for Tyler Rogers to come in in that exact same situation. It gets three outs, giants, shake hands, and go home. That slider right out in front of the plate and kasali throws him out in the ball game is over. And the Giants end up winning it four to two and Tyler Rogers got his wish. He got back in the game the next night and tonight he gets the save. And that is analytics in action with the human part of it. I mean, you've got this whole he trusts me. I will do my best for him. He knows what the right situation for me is and everything is working toward this greater end. That is sort of the new manager, right? It is understanding both the numbers and the people. And I think that's the evolution of Gabe kapler as he's gone from a guy in Philadelphia who understood the numbers, was a little bit shy on the human side of it. And now he's found a way to put them both together in San Francisco and the process is proven by the results. It sounds Tim, like he is the translator that the nerds have been crying out for so they can actually communicate with the jocks. He is and who thought it would be like a beefcake model to do this, right? Tim Q&A model for us to be clear of a different kind. Thank you.

"Kepler launches one. Fair foul. Has won it. A local home run for Kepler. And when he hits the big leagues, I mean, I remember Gabe capler as this outfielder who was sort of on a zillion teams, the Red Sox, most notably when they won the World Series, but what is the scattering report on him? What was his career like in totality? You know, he was a fourth outfielder. He had a couple good years in Tampa, but he was kind of a guy that teams like to have around. But he was kind of a guy that people knew because, you know, he had these beefcake photos on the Internet, but he was always in the weight room, so he was a good example to younger guys. He had this gift of bringing people together in a Clubhouse and kind of bridging cultures in a lot of ways. Yeah, Tim, look, I Google imaged Gabe kappler and I mean, there's a lot of magic Mike energy to his sort of photographic over here. I'm seeing like animal print speedos. I'm seeing him posing in ads, shirtless with a bat. It feels like a caricature of a meathead. I think he kind of had fun with that commercially that worked for him. He was, I mean, when we think about it, he hit 82 home runs and yet everybody knew who he was from all this stuff. He had a persona that exceeded his baseball career. And so at what point does it become clear that, oh, this guy, this sort of character actor almost, that that guy is going to become a manager. He's going to become a coach. And I think that it probably started when he got into the front office. You know, he had done he had done everything, right? He played and then again, we talk about that persona. He transferred that and was a television analyst for a while and that worked well for him. It got his name out. It got his face out. I think it impressed teams that as a former player with a pretty high Q rating. He went into the front office and did like minor league work with the Dodgers. So he saw that analytics boom from the beginning and was part of it, you know, he almost got the job when Dave Roberts was hired for the Dodgers. He was the runner up. So there was a natural progression, even though he hadn't coached in a major league on a major league team. It felt like he had been building toward this for a while. Please join me in welcoming the new manager of the Philadelphia utilities Gabe capler. Thank you. You got. The Gabe capler revolution that we're now sort of witnessing. It had been promised to us before when he was in Philadelphia as the manager of the Phillies and there were lots of headlines and conversations around look at this magnificent weirdo, but that seemed to go disastrously. What happened there? It was a bad situation for him, and I think that he didn't help himself by making mistakes. He called a reliever in in the first week of the season who hadn't even warmed up in the bullpen. There's no one throwing in the bullpen. Or if they were. They got up real quick. And he just took him out. Nobody was up. As of just nobody. No one's feeling. I think that there was a skepticism about him that maybe that group wasn't quite as in tune with the counter cultural aspect of Gabe's personality. Part of it was his own inexperience and hubris in some ways. I also think that the infrastructure in Philadelphia was not even though they hired him, was not quite as a 100% on board with him as the group in San Francisco is. So yeah, a lot of things kind of conspired against him, including himself. And also, look, let's be honest, Philly is not exactly as patient as San Francisco might be for the sorts of cultural developments that Gabe Kepler had been promising. But what did he learn to what lessons did he take away from his two seasons trying to manage the Phillies? He says that a lot of the things he did in Philadelphia, they look bad because they didn't work. And then now he wins a 107 games because those same things started to work. In perfect gay fashion, he calls it a continuum. So what he started in Philadelphia was really what a lot of what we're seeing in San Francisco. He really leaned hard on like high leverage situations, right? So if he had a right handed hitter that had trouble against a certain kind of right handed pitcher and he was up in the fourth inning with runners at second and third, he had no problem throwing a pinch hitter up there. That was new, right? That was just not something that was done with any regularity and Major League Baseball. He brought that to San Francisco, the difference was the guy in Philadelphia might have been walking back to the dugout grumbling and F bomb and whereas the guys in San Francisco are like high 5 and the guy that's coming up to pinch it for him. It's just a whole different attitude and way that he's been able to sell his vision in the Clubhouse. It goes from this sort of heavy reliance on analytics, combining that with the humanistic side of it, right? And I think that, to me, as I see it, that is where Gabe kapler has adapted the most is that he has created an environment where guys trust those decisions because they've seen them work..

"There is a standard disclaimer about investing that applies to both the stock market, especially these days. And also the leader of a Major League Baseball team. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. And for a long time, when Gabe Kepler was struggling to resemble a credible manager, that disclaimer was an argument in his favor. But today, after winning a 107 games with the Giants last season and being named the national league's manager of the year, Gabe kapler is trying to prove that his methods are no fluke. And at the best way to prove that a manager still matters, is to change the way we think of them entirely. I'm Pablo Torre, it's Friday, may 13th. This is ESPN daily. The CFOs that get it, get it.

Tim, we're in this pretty weird place in the grand arc of baseball history, right? Before there was one dichotomy between player friendly managers and disciplinarians, and now we're sort of grappling with this gulf between data geeks and the old school traditionalists. So within that framework, where does Gabe capler fit? I think he almost fits in a way as a contemporary with these guys, even though he's ten years older than any of his players, there's a certain swagger that he has. He listens to the same music. He wears the same shoes. He's got this whole aura about him that is just able to relate. But I think that he, he's an iconoclast. He's a guy that wants to be sort of counterculture. He played ten years in the big leagues. He knows the game inside and out. But he questions it, right? He has this idea that the way we've always done it is not the way we should keep doing it. Everybody is competing on a Major League Baseball field. Doesn't make any sense to have one part of the field stop competing and the other part of the field keep competing. I've never I've never quite understood it. I don't understand it now. He has opened the doors to everything. He wants guys to bring their problems to work. He wants everyone to be themselves. No rookie should be hazed. Nobody should look down on anyone else. What the city of San Francisco stands for, what my mom and dad stand for is equality, diversity, and carrying a great deal about community, a place that I have no doubt that I will be able to make an impact. Strictly because I care enough to do it. When you look at, as you talk about this arc of baseball, you know, they kind of need more guys like that. It's a time when the game needs to move forward to figure out where it's places in the hierarchy of American sports. And I think that people like him who can stand up and say, wait, why are we doing it the way we've always done it? Why are rookies look down upon rather than helped out? It seems pretty basic, but within this structure, it's kind of rebellious. It's a very modern concept in a very traditional place. And I think that dichotomy is where it becomes really, very fascinating. So where does that rebelliousness the iconoclasm year describing Tim? Where does that come from? What's his background? As you might not be surprised by, he has a very interesting backstory. He grew up in San Fernando valley outside of Los Angeles, his parents met at a Vietnam War protest as he puts it, they were activists. They were social justice warriors before that was even a term. His father was a classical pianist, a music teacher, a poet, a writer, and as Gabe says in a way that he somehow managed to make sound fond. He was a failed composer. And so mother was an early childhood educator. And one of the things that gave told me about the way he grew up and he was talking about like dinner table or conversations and he said, there wasn't a lot of how was your day in our household? It was heavy. It was reading recommendations. It was what's going on in the news, politics, very little if any sports, so he comes from this sort of questioning background. As he said that one of the big questions that his parents would always ask was why and the other one was, is that true? I think, you know, it taught him to look a little deeper at the world, you know, to not just take things at face value and he credits his parents for that counter cultural streak that he has. He kind of retained a lot of these lessons that he learned that.

"Tim Kuhn, the most interesting man in baseball, I would argue right now is not a player. It's the man who has done more than anyone to rewrite baseball's unwritten rules. It's the man who is redefining our definition of what it is to be a nerd. It's the man who I think we really actually should probably just describe visually here to him before we get any further with this because I realized now that there are people who don't know what Gabe kapler, the manager of the San Francisco Giants actually looks like. This man is 46 years old and any 25 year old would die to look like him. He is ripped. He's got these forearms with these, the veins. I call them a phlebotomist dream. I mean, his veins are like, they're like ropes, you know? They're just popping out of his arm. Everything is just right. You know, his facial hair is just right. He's got this very well tended beard. It's so well manicured. He only eats red meat. I mean, that's literally all he eats. And he recently started adding in berries. He's got no wrinkles. 46 years old. You ask somebody to imagine what a baseball manager looks like, and it's some sort of variation on like Tommy Lasorda. It's all sort of a character that may have plausibly been played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. If I were to tell you that like Channing Tatum would play him, I think Gabe Kepler would rightfully be offended. But why were you drawn to him? Because I imagine that this the superficial here is not really the reason why you were in his office in the first place. It wasn't. I was out at the ballpark quite a bit last year during there, incredible 107 win season. The Giants for the first time since 2012 are champions of the national league west. And let this celebration begin. 107 wins. And I was fascinated by at least listening to him talk because not only does he not look like a manager, he doesn't talk like one. I'm not really looking for anything to be honest with you. It's like, it's like music or art, and if something touches you in the right way, I'm not like trying to feel anything or experience in anything when I'm having these kind of experiences. They are what they are. He has this way about him where he processes everything and then it all comes out like in almost essay form. There are very few things that I don't like or that I strongly dislike at my preferences, richer, bolder, more flavorful, like the scotches, is very flavorful. And perhaps it is because of the barrels, but in any event, it's more about big and bold for me. And that's true for wines as well. You know, it's just a very thoughtful,.

MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?
"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff

Question. Is he wearing that Niner? That gold Niner hat down in l. A. Ah, and people say is that Gabe Kapler? We're in a strange hybrid of a giant night. I'm gonna say no, because he's such a sensitive man of the people I'm going to say like he's very aware of his surroundings. You feel like you know what? I'm not gonna. I don't want to annoy my friends and Soquel with wearing the the Niner had. I think he's just sensitive to people's needs, and he's going to say no Niner hat when I'm in. So Cal. Well, here he is. He's back talking. And I guess you know, as we kind of get ready for. It's funny.

Gabe Kapler a little bit later in the show, and also, we gotta start Turner sites to Sunday Man, The Niners and the Dallas Cowboys and early game on Sunday morning, so more warrior basketball discussion on the other side kind of nice to dip into some warrior hoop. If you want to check in your thoughts on the game last night, do you share the same level of concern as I have, and again, not? I'm not writing this team off and that totally worried about it. But I'd like to see a little bit more out of that second unit. And I think Steve Kerr tried to manage this thing as close as he could to the guys that will be playing together again. You didn't have some key cards out there yesterday. James. Why has been dreamin green? Eric Paschal will certainly be there as well. But again, I don't know how many of those guys help the offense on the second unit. So more warrior talk. Steve Curves postgame sound coming up on the other side.

The dangers of drinking too much alcohol are amplified. The director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, says not only is alcohol often consumed in crowded settings like bars and parties, it lowers a person's inhibitions, making it more likely people will allow close contact. And talk more, raising the likelihood of spreading the virus with alcoholism. People usually don't realize they have a problem, so we all really do have to look out. One another. Especially now.

"Tio, Gabe Kapler, Black and Orange house before we do that, though I'm definitely in a going to get capital black and orange. But I got to hear about any D and Jared. Oh, yeah. How do you know a Polly? You know what I need to review When I got to be honest, I was a little You know, when you commit to these things you're like, you know, I got a routine. You know, I gotta Now I gotta ramp up here. Once you see the faces, you see come the life was so like dread. So I was gonna take you like I'm supposed to sign around 5 30 for the six o'clock start and around five o'clock. I was trying to make sure all my teas were crossing I's were dotted and just making sure had the facts right on, by the way, just going over some more of the Just going over some more of the Jerry rice career stats. By the way, Paulie Yeah. Just, you know, I think this needs to be and we just need to like, Forget Columbus. Forget Secretary's Day. Grand Parents Day. Flag Day. Yeah, I honestly think the next president they should put in Jerry Rice Appreciation Day. Yeah, I sat down. I was going over everything that is going to Ronnie's bio, making sure I had it right. You know how many pro bowls have any? When was he in the Hall of Pro Football Hall of Fame? Blah, blah, Kina. You know how many years were you with the Niners? How many rings you want out of Eddie? How many times they went to the playoffs with Eddie? His owner, which, by the way was a lot. Dude. I got to Jerry. We're talking about these kids out here. The kids who have NBC gold today. Do they really know about Jerry? Do they know about Jerry? They don't Polly Polly, even me. I cover the I go. Sit down and go. Look at Jerry. I deliver Terry Gross. You don't even really buddy. I know he is a Wayne Gretzky kind of separation. He's got between himself and everybody else is like you have things like Think about Jerry Rice is like whether it was Montana. Or young When those guys who put the ball in the air. I think Rice felt like that's my ball. That's mine as soon as it's in the air that's much like, for example, like the end of the game the other day, when Garoppolo kind of underthrew born and then you had I forget who said it? Somebody set it on Monday. Maybe it was Tim Ryan like Ono was Shanahan, Shannon said. You didn't really leave his feet and get up for the ball. He probably should have. Maybe what? John The P I call you put Jerry Rice in that situation. I can almost guarantee you. He finds a way to get to that football. He would fight his way to get to the ball. What do you say that Because I'll tell you another input. That's Jerry Rice. It's not fair to compare, Kendrick pointed Jerry Rice. I'm just saying Jerry Rice was the kind of guy that as soon as that ball was airborne, he felt like that's mine. That's mine now. But just to answer your question, though, by saying, like Oh, so I was kind of like, I don't want to say dreading, but I was like when I do these things, you know, I get a little update. We're going to go well, you know, and then also disrupt your rhythm. You know, you have your sort of wind down rhythm, watching the Giants over dinner and then wind it down and hitting the hay and all that just had this rhythm that we've been doing for X number of years now. And so, but, you know, So had that slight anxiety going in. You know, I understand it again. You know, Paulie, what do you wear to an event like this, can you? Yeah, I was concerned about that. But you know what? Eventually, in a very rare move for your boy. Ah, for your boy here. I went casual. Okay. Good. Exactly. No, Like a short sleeve. Like, like one of those. You know, one of those button up Ruka shirts. Okay? Sure. Sure. Just that slightly above the golf shirt, but below the sport coat, you know? Yeah, I'm not going full on like Warren Beatty Circus 71, but I'm a man of leisure. You know what I mean? Yeah. You're not going to go. You're so vain with an ascot know exactly. Yeah, but anyway, the point being is that and then it was really funny. So at 5 30 we sign on and there there is. There's karma, and he's already there, you know? He's sitting up there in his winery in state, Seeing Halina shut up to Castle piano wines. You know, there's kina, by the way, Just shout out, Keenan told Keene is down to Santa Clara. So you could see the grease board behind. I'm using one of those meeting rooms, you know, Still with the team, you know, he works in the front office. They said Ronnie isn't coming at 5 45. And then Jerry Pops on to Jerry wearing a vest and a tie, sea and Carmen's like Jerry, You're so dignified look so dignified injuries like I'm just being a pro man, just Maddie and and then the catches Eddie couldn't sign on. Eddie. So we had then we have a situation where Carmen Carmen had to call Eddie and try to talk him through logging on you. So we were pretty beatings. There were all these little screen. We're all squares on a screen and I got karma going, Ed Ed. No, no, no. This link he has no, no, This is the E mail. I said you had He tried on like seven, and he's like God, He's got a lot and he could hear Eddie couldn't sign on now. It turns out that this hurricane that's hit Florida and Alabama. And, you know, we just like every time there's a hurricane, we're like, Oh, whatever. You know what we got our hands full with fires. I mean, you know, Well, they think it's truly affected at his Internet. And maybe he should have had NBC gold. I don't know. Maybe he would have been able to log on because so through that this went all the way up till six o'clock, right when the thing was supposed to start and he couldn't get on, and we're like what? We can't do this. It's so finally the guy, this kid Josh, who was organizing the kid who probably, you know, you know, grew up in the tech era. He finally told Mr D just do it on the phone, and we'll throw up a still photo of you, Oka and so they loved..

"I'm not saying you can't figure it out. I'm not saying guys can't have big league careers after that, But if you're pitching style is based on deception. It's based on movements based on on being funky and herky jerky and throwing guys off balance. And you're not doing that and you're not getting out. It's a dozen putting the ball in play and making hard contact Agent Pollack. Then what's What's the Why is he in high leverage situation here? This is a guy maybe who should be pitching. If he's at the big League level should be pitching when you're playing from behind. Not when you're trying to hold onto a leader keep guys off base, so they go to Gabe Kapler. And they say, even after everything you've seen after the eight innings Tyler Rogers has thrown in the nine runs he's given up on the way over 10 and the three hit batsman and eight appearances. Do you still trust him? I think if we looked at yesterday's game, and obviously today gives us a new picture still feel very strongly about Roger's given the chance to be good hairs because of his ability to throw strikes have all the movement On his his fastball on the slide, So I still view Rajan that like I still think he's going to be an excellent major leaguer on gonna stand right behind him and give him enough for another opportunity. Performing a high level. Oh, good. Oh, good. Fantastic. Can't wait more from Gabe Kapler here. The last will And talking about hey, does not think Tyler Rogers is a novelty. Hey, thinks that he's got two legit pitches. I think so, too. I think he's been good. I think there are times that you put him in. I just think right now is not necessarily that time. We're not using Tony Watson enough. Rogers had just thrown two innings the game before. Tell me how this was the right situation. It's not just novelty with Rogers the ability Tio throw strikes with with two pitches that in their unusual it's an unusual look, so it certainly looks different, acknowledging that, but you can attack the strikes on with those two pitches, and they're actually just flat out good pitches. Calling me a nice adjustment, Got two strikes two outs. He was able to elevate the ball one of the things that we really, really like about Roger's visibility of football ground. Obviously, part of the reason that he was in that game, Mr to get a ground ball and wasn't able to do that today. This is my problem, though, is that he's coming into multiple high leverage situations and he's not executed. His whip is 15 That's bad for reliever that's not good for reliever. 13 is like average for a starting pitcher. 15 is not good, especially for a relief pitcher guy who's supposed to be a guy who can come in and get a ground ball and get out of an inning. And he has not been all that effective. So anyway, that was your your follow up. Tio Tio gave Kappler one guy not 16 on the cash pretext, Line says, Hey, can we send Gabe Kapler to the alternate site in Sacramento? That's pretty pretty solid takes there and then one more here, says 707 Do I feel like the mismanagement of the pitching staff has cost the Giants at least four wins So far, professionals will make adjustments or they wouldn't be Professionals We can't have far on managing the team from the computer, literally. Yeah, this It's not looking great right now. I think there's some talent I do think for hours, put some talent on the roster. I just think that they're being managed at a game that they could be a little bit closer in grubs that they would have another opportunity to win down the road anyway. On the other side will make the connection with Murph it mad. We'll get rolling on a Monday morning. Lots to talk about from the weekend can be our 1045 and 6 80 The sports leader. Leadoff spot with Adam Copeland is on both sides of the dial KNBR, 1045 and six Thescore ts leader going on everybody Adam Copen here talking about my friends at for long vision correction.

Our guy doctor for long because he's correcting vision, and he's been doing it at the best rate in the Bay Area for an extended period of time. I told you guys about getting rid of my glasses and contacts. Couple weeks ago, I finally did it. And it has been life and lifestyle change and get this win played golf last week. First time without corrective lenses second highest round I've ever shot. It is incredible the way I'm getting this done on Dawei. My vision has changed exceptionally..

"gabe kapler" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"The NBA was going on with the warriors are not a factor the NBA Jerry goes by the wayside the bay area not paying as much attention to it as we have in the past five years good morning to you happy Thursday to you Adam coping with you in the leadoff spot five to six AM every weekday morning orders did play the Lakers last I heard a little bit of the a few of the calls coming in their deangelo Russell twenty one points eight assists in a loss for the warriors I was really deep put up eighteen point of his own for the Lakers seventeen rebounds for him they win one twenty to ninety four over your Golden State Warriors so that was not the focal point of yeah that is now a lot of media attention yesterday via the Gabe Kapler press conference will spend just a little bit more time on this before we finally turn our sights towards week eleven of the NFL season I think everybody's ready to get back to the to the gridiron talk for football get a good a an AFC north division match up tonight browse and the Pittsburgh Steelers should be a fun one that's what I don't really know what to make of actually that's dealers and still is on the road in Cleveland I'm my deck tells me Steelers are the better team in that one of the to win that game but again we just saw which such Seattle coming to Levi's stadium your forty Niners we saw Atlanta go down there to New Orleans last week and beat the saints in the Superdome so anything can happen my feeling like I said is that the Pittsburgh comes away without one Mason Rudolph played pretty good but a lot of it's going to have to do with how effective James Connor can be anyway we'll talk more NFL and the injuries around the forty Niners they'd put on the line by the way in a game against the Seahawks on Monday thirteen players showing up on the injury report on on Wednesday yesterday following that that loss on Monday night so what type of impact is that going to make our their data new defensive and we'll talk at length about that in the next segment we get some audio repair with it as well but but first we got to talk a little more about this game Kapler thing first of all I I think I think I'm ready to move on from all the this is the right word the the grilling of what it was that happened in twenty fifteen I'm not saying that that we forget about it I'm not saying we we act as though it didn't happen but it's time to move on it's time to start thinking about this thing in baseball terms for Dave Kapler and for far outside because ultimately that's what they're going to be judged anybody who says I'm not gonna watch giants baseball this year because a cap or anybody who says I'm out on deep Kapler or is rooting for Gabe Kapler to fail because of what's happened with the off the field criticisms of of what went on in Los Angeles if that's your reason you know that then this is a really for you anyway Hey this is more for me about what he can do with the baseball team again I believe that they've answered the questions I think that they've gone about this in the best way they can they didn't back down from anything yesterday's press conference was one of the weirdest most awkward uncomfortable strange things I've ever seen in sports it felt more like a Brett Kavanaugh hearing then I did like a Gabe Kapler introductory press conference right like in this was an interrogation this was a straight like when guys get higher generally into a new role and a lot of times like you go back to the Tomsula higher everybody wants that for some reason I seem Tomsula floated out multiple times on my on my my Twitter I thread this is not the same thing is is Jim Tomsula the forty Niners in the wintertime sewer we're like attempting to to re spark or to to re hash something that a just been there you tried to not change the culture entirely it was an easy hire a segue into Tomsula rather than going out and getting maybe somebody who's ready to rebuild the franchise down in Santa Clara the cab or hire somebody who's ready to to lead you into the next wave of giants baseball by the way you already got a little bit of that foundation built last year with far on being here it's not two brand new guys for hunters new of course but he's been here now for a full baseball season we've seen what his plan is in was goals are generally though and I am going back to it probably not even the talents to what I'm thinking more about the chip Kelly one is the chip Kelly when I think is the one that even when he got hired people are going I don't know about this I don't know if this is the right move he worn out his welcome in Philadelphia it was clear that the way the eagles were playing was not going to be at the NFL standards because chip Kelly like to use ninety guys ready wanted seventy five guys out there that he can run in and out for every play like he did in college or you can get almost an unlimited number of players you can use it doesn't work the same way in the NFL you can't run out there it basically chip Kelly was running offenses in Philadelphia the way that in and for lack of a better comparison the way the forty Niners play called that last drive in overtime on Monday night right three quick please take ten seconds off the clock passing plays and that's it your dear often gets off the field defensive but off the field for two minutes and the right back out there but as far as as far as the game Capper thing is concerned it did not feel at all like it was a welcome to San Francisco press conference it felt like let's get all this out of the way let's air this out let's find out what you've done wrong what you're willing to admit what you're willing to do to change who you are when really this was supposed to be about the next wave a celebrates or a moment in in giants baseball and it's not because people are not a fan of of of Gabe Kapler and I do believe there to I'm not gonna tell anybody what they do and don't believe if if the accusations against Kapler and foreign about how they handled this situation again the other these guys committed an assault I mean either of these guys were a if you believe Farrakhan nobody was trying to hide what happened they kicked up the chain of command and it didn't go about it the right way in because he was one of the first to find out about its it's it reflected negatively on him the way far on put it was the Capper had to go to their legal counsel first and then figure out a way how would would you present this way how to go about it and they've admitted they did not go about it in the best way possible and if they've learned from it should neither guy ever get to work again should the other guy over to manage a baseball team again I don't know that's that's above me and and I don't believe that that's a that's where we the E. have to stop the Buck with with Kapler this is a decision about baseball and about whether or not you can build towards the future if you get a safe it's not all just about sports I get it but this was a baseball decision they've answered the questions and I'm ready to move on I'm ready to start talking about what he can do on the field what he can do in the clubhouse with guys how he's going to get the giant's back to the top of the division and to compete with the LA Dodgers well by the way we're hearing that they're kicking the tires on Josh Donaldson and on Anthony ran down and under a call like to dot yeah they don't suck that bad if they're not going away going away so for forum yesterday you stand up and say Hey Gabe Kapler was the right guy for the job and really that was every answer you got anybody who says why would you walk in and the Wimmer freezer to far on yesterday when he came on with Murph and mac was you walked into a burning building that had smoke billowing out of it he ended up bringing in a guy who walked in with all this baggage why would you do that and the best answer for Han could give was we went through all that baggage and all that B. S. and all the guys who didn't have it and we still deemed Gabe Kapler the best guy for the job if you ride with Farrakhan you got to buy into that if you don't need him to prove it to you that's okay too but I think we're ready to move on and start talking about this is a baseball situation it was just it was a bizarre sight yesterday by the way that the most awkward part of it too shot here is the new thirty two thirty three year old GM so funny like you know the far on he's got the history with Gabe Kapler are you know that he's gone through all this interview process this K. Ascot starters Ryan like forty eight hours ago seventy two hours ago any set up there gets grilled for our lives hell did I get myself into it adds or a single question did starters over that our long press conference and by the way we find out I think Dave Chappelle Surtees walking off stage door number nineteen I was joking about it yesterday it's only taken the number away from from Kevin France seven for instance old number I know a lot of other guys added to the.

Who will Giants hire as manager?
"Where the giants gore right now Hey guy Bruce Bochy who but not a demand is back in the mix one of the last fully autonomous managers you know Joe Maddon is is an analyst guy was on for front of it where the giants going now maybe not to the day Kapler extreme well maybe to the Gabe Kapler street as of there's been talk that he is own list of giants guys to be talked to if he has been talked to already wasn't just did they say bad was three for twelve so it was it is a three for between rival between twelve and fifteen yeah here is good in the make I was surprised only in three years then they only yet in the only given five they give a five or a little over five in Chicago was it like five press was five it was definitely five year gap I think it was five for twenty eight I'm not positive but if you take a little bit of a pay cut that kind of shows you where things are at right now percent and the angels the cost was it it it it matters before he managed in in Detroit short I. N. I don't even know you learn there because it was a very much it was really a winnable situation there that he had one good year but I have to go back and look but getting your rate of just because of of is it has its shortcomings this year was because they wanted a bad back they were they wanted a guy who had been there done that he did it with the with the rays one did win the big one and then when the big one with the with the cubs and they probably hired they probably they had no idea they can get rid of us was because they didn't think the cubs get rid of bad luck the cubs made out of got rid of mad it except for the cubs just they ran into a brick wall the last three weeks of the season they were brutal they they couldn't win is they can get away and go when night nope not gonna win at either in the Milwaukee could lose I mean who would have thought that would the odds of that have been Milwaukee making their playoff cubs don't after your guides or gets hurt down that going to happen but it did not so easy falls out of favor there and let go and he gets to go to the Anaheim where you want to go he wanted to go there they wanted him there that's the reason they got rid of them but if you're not gonna see that that's one of the reasons they said you won't see boshi this year because no one's going to want to paying that much
