"When they chose to trade Joe when that when that season was over, and it was a financial thing and and and not, and not keep Joe Morgan, Of course this is the cats with the guy that got in the trade was my crew co. So so wait that with this, really and they They won the pennant and went to the World Series when in my first year as a broadcaster for the Baltimore Orioles, and the Orioles played Joseph Eli's in that World Series, So I mean, that is such a great point that Mike was traded for him. Wow. Wow. Hey, John. Here's a little trip down memory lane. I have the box girl from that that game in that 82 team. It's 2 to 2 Ball game in the seventh inning, the Dodgers takeout Valenzuela after six. Bring in, Tom Needn't you're Bob Brenly? Singles Champ Summers Pence. It's for Joe Bettini, and it's a double. Friendly stopped two thirds of 2nd and 3rd Guy Solares pinch runs for Champ Summers. Here's an interesting thing. John Greg Minton is due up any hits and he strikes out OK, And so then Jim Woolford is and then then forced her comes into free Petit areas. Terry Forster, the famous Terry Forster Comes in for needn't fear to face Jim Walford, and he strikes him out, John, so the giant's going to squander this whole thing until with two outs. Joe hits the home run. Yeah, and it was and you know for Joe Hey, grew up here in the Bay area and grew up in the East Bay on and he grew up at a time when there were so many great Professional future professional athletes coming out of the East Bay and so you know, he came up with a lot of those guys or right after a lot of those guys and you played against a lot of those guys when they were all kids, But Joe was a huge Giants fan and idolized Willie Mays. So for him. It was an ultimate dream to play for the Giants, and it just looked like it was never gonna happen. But the opportunity finally did come and and and he kind of sees the moment and he was, you know, an old player and near the end of his career at that time and yet still such a valuable player who added so much to a ball club. And you can quantify certainly by looking at his numbers, the things that he did for that Giants team because his numbers were outstanding, but at the same time, you can't quantify the leadership in the clubhouse and and how he taught a lot of guys. To win and Joe was hey was very hard nosed about it. If if he thought you weren't serious enough, or you didn't take losing hard enough, he got in your face about it. Ask doing Piper about that sometimes because Ah, it happened. T keep on on that team. So it also, I think caper talked about how Show it periodically need days off because he was an older player. He was getting close to 40 and Ah ah, doing Kipper was his back up its second base, he says. It always seems that they needed a day off. When we were facing the best left handers you've crossed it was on the mound. There was Joe and needed a breather that day, and and I was the guy who got the tap, so they had some fun with that. Well, you are listening to the cable all morning show on camp here and can't be RFM. San Francisco, these sports leader, the unmistakable voice of John Miller as we got the sudden news that Joe Morgan Passed away at the age of 77 this morning is Danville home and obviously remembering him as a giant late in his career, But John Adam Coplan is in for pulling Mac, who's off this week. So coach you had a question when you were talking about like Joe Morgan, the man and the impact you might have had on these teams is like, you know, teaching guys howto win, but you mentioned being an old school type player, but he would wear pictures out in a way that we see now is like the modern game where he was a He was a walks machine. He was an O B P guy. He led the league in walks four or five times he had over 800 more walks the needed strike. It's in his career. Can you talk about that sort of impact he had on the game really before the drawing pictures out or drawing walks off. The guys are getting deep into pitch counts was it was a factor in the game. Well, you know Jill himself, tell me On more than one occasion that when he was a young player, because he always just had great discipline at the plate and would get a lot of walks and always had the high on base percentage, But nobody ever used the statistic on base percentage. At that time when he broke in back in the sixties and into the seventies, he actually was hitting about 2 80 in one of his first full years. There was a catcher on the Astros named Ron Brand. Who said I know you're pleased about hitting 2 80. But for me, you're missing the actual big point here. That has nothing to do with your value. Your value is That you get on base. Ah, lot. You get all of those walks, and you don't even seem to realize it yourself that that's huge. Is that what makes you such a good player, and I just want to thank you think about that a little bit and give yourself a little more credit than you're giving yourself so because nobody talked about that. And Joe was one of them, and he was He was the guy who was sort of the poster child for the later idea of on base percentage. And what you know Bill James and what was really important in baseball statistics and on yet If you talk to Joe about his two consecutive MVP seasons in the mid seventies with the Reds, Joe won't say people will say And rightly so on and I I would have a huge argument with anybody who disagreed with it, but that he was the best player in the game at that time. And Joe himself, though, would argue with me about it and say, Well, I think there were guys who were better players who had more talent. I will say maybe I was when you put it all together. Maybe I was all round the best all round player, but that was remember when we first started working together in 1990. The first of what would be over 20 years, 21 seasons of Sunday Night baseball on ESPN, and I told him it Bill James, the numbers guru had come out with a book at that time called the historical Baseball abstract and where he put some of his formulas in, uh, historically to talk about the best players of all time and best players of eras and that kind of stuff. And that he came to the conclusion, not his opinion, but based on all of his formulas and doing the math and whatnot, But you could make a case that at his very best, Joe Morgan was the greatest second baseman in history. So I remember talking to Gio about that. And and he said, Well, that's ridiculous. How can you say that when you had Rogers Hornsby that hit 442 home runs the same year? Nobody has been better than that. And and I said, Well, I think when you read what he said, and the formula and the era that Hornsby played in, and the great hitters part that he played in versus your all round game and your guilt, you won gold gloves. At that time. You were the best defensive second baseman and you stole like 70 bases. And you know years where he would steal 68 70 bases, he only would be thrown out eight or nine times a year when he was A true base stealer, meaning when when they needed a steel, he was going to get it. Even when anybody in the ballpark knew that he was going to go. He stole the bag. That was just it. So ah, When you put the whole package together, there was nobody better than him. But Joe himself was the in that way because he was confident and cocky and what, not as a player. But at the same time, I think he always gave Other players and great players there do and we would never be the guy to say no, I was better than all those guys. So in that way, he had a really humility about it. So, uh, anyway, that's part of who Joe was. And and to this to this day, he was still the guy who would call the commissioner. And say, How come the black guy was not interviewed for that job? I thought you said that. Ah minority candidates were supposed to be interviewed for all of these openings when they come up so he would hold you but see League and and now rob Manford kind of hold their feet to the fire and you know, and they would still Contact him sort of behind the scenes, even when all this stuff came up with the Astros. I think the commissioner with Joe was one of the guys that he called and consulted with Tio..

But the agency is now caught up, he says. Regardless of the backlog, hospitalizations have been dropping, and that shows that what we're doing now is working. Every decision that I've made has been a decision that is in the best interests of the health and safety of the people instead of Texas, as well as trying to do that maintaining businesses being as open as possible.

"News on demand at news radio k LBJ dot com. Welcome to the Todd and don show we're live, and we want you to join us at 51283605 90. Now here are Todd and done. You don't want Austin, Texas did several months ago by rolling back the homeless ordinances in AA. Lot of people, we believe that it led to an even greater homeless problem. And embolden the homeless community if you will. Many business owners have complained about this for a long time. The the way Austin deals with its homeless crisis and it's pretty interesting to see how some other cities air dealing with it here locally. You could jump in here at 51283605 90 Patrick Osborne, filling in for the vacationing, Don Prior. Indeed, Patrick, you've been covering this story about an ordinance to prohibit camping or establishing living accommodations in public areas approved by the Leander City Council. Yeah, this This is a story of basically the ordnance that was past has been passed very recently by the city of Leander is pretty much in direct opposition. Austin's where Austin allows the homeless to pitch a tent virtually anywhere they want. You know as long it's not blocking right away. So to speak. And Leander, they have actually banned public camping within the city limits. Yeah, it is. It is not allowed there now. They're not. They're not. They say they're not trying to be. You know they're not trying to vilify the homeless here, and police Chief Greg Minton has said that they're going to treat this issue very much with compassion. But there is a $500 fine per day that will be imposed for for anyone caught camping. Although his chief mentioned Mitten points out typically, Ah $500 fine means absolutely nothing to a homeless person if they don't even have five bucks in their pocket, right, eh? So they're looking for other avenues to try to also keep them out of that cycle. You know, kinda like Austin talked about where you get the cycle of the legal system can pay the fines. They end up in jail. They come out and they have more so Chief Min is trying to mitigate that issue. The city of Leander says. Now we have to get arms around this now, Mitten says. If you set a precedent now that it will overwhelm the city down the road on, so this is ahh. You know, just just to the south. It's very different in Austin, but in the end, they're not. They're not gonna let it happen. Captain ever Jason Shaw tells community impact news. You said the homeless should be addressed with compassion. He said. The city needs to address homelessness and camping Now on DNA, what resources are available to help people who may need to sleep in a car or, you know are for a night or two. Goes on to say, I think we need to have a little bit more leeway a little bit more empathy, not sure what he's looking for. But Mayor Troy Hill tells the community impact said there was a recent situation which there was a person camping and Hill. He said. He called the Hill Country ministries which aided that person immediately. So it sounds like there's a lot of church organizations. I know the Salvation Army does incredible work in Williamson County when it comes to helping the homeless. They really work on trying to prevent those from, you know, becoming homeless. You know those folks that are near homelessness like they got a job. They got an apartment, but they're really struggling to get by, and the goal is to keep them from becoming homeless. You're right. Lee in a police chief, Greg Menton. He said the city services and funds available to help people with hardships in providing housing and food. And he said the department pushes compassion and empathy, Woodworking with people experiencing homelessness. And I think a lot of people listening or thinking all right now, If Leander starts doing what Zoe Austin's doing, it's only going to increase the homeless population in that area. Mind has meant in points out. You've got tense. Oliver Austin now that that much more visible on have grown in size, you know the campsites. Fluker Ville is dealing with the issue to some degree, Cedar Park is now dealing with the issue, and Leander says. We just We have to get her arms around this now, so it doesn't become an issue for us. They're not anti homeless. That's the message coming out. We're not against the homeless. We just have to put some ordnance is in place that we don't become Austin. Let's go, Teo Robert on the tide of Don show this Morning, Robert, where you calling from? I am calling from Austin here didn't end in Northwest till what's on your mind. I'm running for City Council here in district in. It's going to be my second time around and I've been listening to your show. What's your What's your full name? Robert? What's your full name? Robert Robert Thomas. OK s O You run in district 10.

On then she had sustained but didn't speak against or vote against the extra half billion dollars On this mobility. Just enough was enough. I hear what you're saying how long you lived in Austin, Robert I've been in Austin about 30 years. My family has been here for over 60 years got here and 50 60. That's awesome. And and what motivated you to run Teo to go up against Alison Alter a distinct district in just some of the The current situation. We're in with homelessness in the relationship with police. Is that are those the things that motivate you? That's fundamental that it was just a lack of common sense on the council generally, and then Allison instead of representing her district, she joined in and I Well, actually is not feel like I know she is. Listen, Tio voices small, very loud voices to show up at the City council meetings and assumed that that was represent your district. That's just not the Voice of West often. It's certainly not the voice of district can listen. I hear a lot of people that live in district him to say the very same thing. You just said. That's not what I wanted. That's not what I voted for. You know, as voters out there in district, and it's pretty interesting.

"Tomorrow and that pitching or Jeff Samardzija goes tomorrow Tyler Rogers as bill about that bill keep that in mind Rogers one talk to you about that he goes tomorrow against the the diamond accent right bill Laskey how are you what's new I'm doing good Marty how are you doing boil boil judging again the starting pitching is just fabulous another solid outing or by Kevin Costner has been given a head up in spring training one of the big highlight that we had as a free agent signing by signing him to a nine million dollar contract and now I guess we're seeing early results because this stuff is dynamic yeah and you know something is twenty nine and I had him on this morning and if you have a chance for the fans now you don't have to put for the fans to hear this kid talk a little bit I comma kid anyone that age is still a kid to me but he he's got his head on it on straight I like him he's crazy he's a little bit goofy but he I I think that he has a good arm and the point is he's twenty nine you know he could be around for a couple years you don't have this you know you don't have to get to July with this guy and say Gee he looks pretty good let's trade him you know he could pay less thirty two thirty three I mean he's got a live arm the live arm plus you can use them as a starter which they're trying to do now and as a reliever and the experience he had when he cursed with the Reds and then you know he was dominant coming out of the bullpen back there and he was a guy Marty we we talked about it we really were like who is this guy why are they giving him nine million dollars when we saw some of the only members he did then he really struggling away at all but boy his arm he fishing C. ninety two to ninety five fastballs what and I Sean was talking about it during a game about working a slider in his repertoire because you really want to get that picture and ensure song said he got it in a certain charge you didn't throw the twenty pitchers and he was dominant against a good solid team the Padres throughout their day yeah very good Gusman had his moment with Atlanta you know he'd be had this ten starts and he was five and three he went sixty innings which is the equivalent of going three hundred innings you know when when you played you know six six innings a start my god you know you guys should get a you know a a ninety million dollar contract so he had his moment with Atlanta and and he's back here and look these guys they tweak everything they've they've got video on everything and maybe they could help him find it again but it's in there for him and I thought that was as you say a very very good part of of what we saw with him today let's let's talk Tyler Rogers for second look you you played cuisine very was it was in there in those days and I remember Ted Abernathy and you know the submariners what what makes this guy so special because bill I I've watched him down here I watched him last year people don't square him up and left the cemetery member Terry Crowley place your aerials in the Red Sea in a left handed pinch hitter he was it thanks to call they could wait till to call they got on the mound he said to call in and the guy hit eight hundred often because the call the a right handed submariner Crowley a left hander you could never get him out this guy gets lefties out what what makes the Rogers special what what what do you say Walton Lobo was gonna quit your here Dan Christian variations double in my first year with your kids city Ross and I had just got moved up to double A. and he was thrown a bullpen and of course I never saw a guy like that you talked about came to call the guys in the earlier years because you first time I ever saw and I remember John Schuerholz Indic ball shootings in the bullpen watching them and they said we'll never make it in the big leagues No Way this guy's going to make it it's too small there's not enough movement and then he started throwing their sliders and a little breaking balls and all of a sudden they said well where was that I'm sure he wants to double a triple a and then next thing you know he was in a big league that we was dominant that is really about the spin of the ball Marty when you're looking for it and you look at a fast pitch girls softball thrower in a come from underneath and that's kind of where it comes from almost today whose dad yep those are almost certain to ground and this man is different it comes in as a solution turns into a dark sedan Yasaka sinker drop but if he can continue to hit spots with that and that's what I'm seeing more now in spring training and even comment a little bit the target he's training for the target and not miss much he's a dominant closer there's no reason why they couldn't try and there because you kind of a trick which he doesn't throw real hard it's all about movement bad boy you get quick outs like that usually strikes and you get movement hitters are already half their jobs and sometimes the balls and I don't sometimes the ball tails away so I like it I really do try like Tyler Rogers charm last couple years in Sacramento these doctors don't have more than nothing bothers German I think the more they use I loved it it came up last year the story that came around him about being in the minor leagues for so many years and somebody finally gave me the opportunity to P. C. L. all stars are always belt and I think he's the type of guy that can kind of screw up that line up in the beginning or the middle once she comes in after a flame thrower I I I agree with you good report good report on him you know he'll pitch tomorrow against Arizona and again you know it you know throw it out to the audience you know into it came poor if you feel like call in and just chatting with bill and I who do you think the closure should be on this team if you had to predict now Watson shoulder is barking we heard that from March says last night and it was confirmed today in Rama says the little oblique strain on the side that'll probably cost him a month or so but if you had a project you know who the closure would be let's say in July before any trades or anything like that where where would you go with the bill you know if you're going to go to you if you're gonna go so that the guy that throws the hardest cooler out of course everybody likes but he has a tendency to get wild with charms you know you got a look at some of the other guys just throw out there some of the experience of of our god you should possibility he throws pretty hard he's got high velocity the house you guys showed some signs of being a closer there really isn't one name that comes up tomorrow you know if you're looking at experience tali Rogers wasn't closer most of his career you know you care I would love to stay in that radius Morocco but we're not going to see him for a while he he would probably be a member number one guy by Tyler Anderson just isn't doing it as the closer for me I know we closed last year a little bit toward the end but I think that jobs wide open I really do and I and I hate to say it but I think it's going to be our a closer by committee until somebody takes it over yeah I think so you know what I'm thinking as you're talking I'm saying to myself as used rattled off the names who is consistent in other words to the guy who's who's your Gary Lovell luger Greg Minton who who's your guy that you know when you bring him out there you're going to get something and of all think dot dot the gas Marty that's the big question is spring training I think you and I go over all these names and there is a one guy that's like that that is in there is an that will Smith that we lost that go out of there nine out of ten times and he's got he's got nine out of ten states there is a bad guy right now and I think that's what they're going to have to come to a conclusion you talk about it I talk about guys want to know what their role and they have to have something like that going out of spring training yeah I'm thinking of as you're talking I'm saying Gustav a plan you know we saw him today and he's all over the place that spring training you know he'd be still you don't know what you're going to get from him when you put him out there I'll take you to go with driver got right now if if if I had to pinpoint somebody I think if if he's got the high velocity where he can go out you've got the good breaking ball to get out of those old he would probably be my guide you said who's your closer today that would be the guy I would probably say yes to these two he's a little guy I don't think you can use of your times a week I thank you little dot I think it will be I yeah I think you where about you know honestly and I think that's what happened to him last year and he had the the you know the growing muscle issue the adductor issue they have good arm but for me he's he's a seventh inning guy you know get a little of it get a couple of outs and I hope you get out of the inning only you lose your beer closer right now Marty would you take well that's a good question and I tend to go with cone rod but I agree with you he's a big strong kid he's had the mental side he's got it but I I'd have to see more of them but I think if I had to pick somebody I would probably say go with **** right if I had to pick someone I'm not going on the Peralta not going to I don't think Watson it is a guy who can do it the although we love Watson I just I don't see it as you know look good today not that easy going to be on the team is Rico Garcia I was going to bring that up okay that was Judy pitch last weekend one of the games we followed and you know nice one two three inning last week K. you know I know you want to talk a little bit about Cahill yeah it seem like grow listening to it on the radio bark at our time with him but he's got so much stuff that moves the sinker the slider and the curveball it is stuck his tail so I was wondering you know what the wind and things like that sometimes our center ballers the ball will pay a little bit more but you were saying there was more blown out than him so I don't know I would have to say Joey Barton and you go down the bullpen catcher couple more these guys just to get a little more idea what their throat yeah yep that I think K. hoses over throwing in it you know he's a sinker guy all the way and the light spin it up there to an end and part was heavy this the first time I can remember bart looking uncomfortable in that it's okay you know as we look at yesterday's only got so many so many at bats above double A. and look you gotta learn how to catch a major league pitching staff and I mean just thinking about right is that does that mean I don't I don't know how many games it'll take probably a couple hundred games of understanding a major league pitching staff and you tell me well it it's got to be less than that but at the same time you have to get in the metal approach or what the pitcher wants to throw one's money pitch what is he going to go with the B. gets behind what is going to go with when he gets ahead of its gonna be opposite of a changeup or US tanker slider so those are things that you have to gauge every time the guy comes out there and you know that's what Joe barge learning and last year I thought the learning curve last year going to big league camp was a success because this year he's coming in this Friday and then we talk about is hitting again running the bases today got an infield base hit just everything he's doing alright he cannot open the ice up with this manager they're bigger they love those guys were both you and I do and I would love to see him at the big league level and we certainly will but Joey Barton guy and I thought.

"Larry Krueger show going by former giant and current Phillies color analyst our man Frannie Kevin frames on KNBR six eight these sports leader a little bit espresso changes but you know for years I have anybody can come see me I'll put it in the school a real nice guy Jake area he wasn't happy I guess he hit are no he no he was fine he hit Todd Frazier with a breaking ball phrase your mouth off and that was his response I sum it up correctly yeah I just if you're gonna do what Todd Frazier in Denton he's a good do the top father but let's be honest here there is a change up chest hurts no it doesn't no change it doesn't hurt any demon score a mug like glanced off that's what I like is it number one yeah it is a disease area something a bad day is he it could be but no one knows because no one's gone after this gonna say that's the thing is a lie I brought up with more of a mac earlier is like think about one hundred when it he he threw at Bryce Harper and Bryce Harper one after have we seen guys there were Bryce since not I don't watch price every day like you do but I would or not though Adam they're not they're not isn't doing too well by the way it's got a hundred strikeouts in like three hundred plate appearances well how do you want to say how you wanted to find well I just think people here I he's gonna be the next very Barnes Perrie bonds never struck at a hundred don't ever sitting get a hundred ten times let's say but this guy struck at a hundred times in the first half I don't five times fifty nine walks so he's got three seventy on base percentage you could look it up but I think Barry never struck at a hundred and five times although some tired but no one's there I season the right baseball people would never ever said that he was gonna be the next very by now but I mean really you know sixty he look at acting as well as leaders in in doubles is one of the he's only got sixteen homers that's where it would probably come up to you he's not playing well he's into fifty three which is far ahead of where he was last year in the first half sixty two RBIs leads a team that is a good thing is based on is not being good his defense is been really good compared to worry was the last two years so he's for us he's not the problem it there's a lot of things that are going on in that on that team on the field that they they're a flawed team and when you lose injure McEachern who is having an all star year like I say that man J. fans a pilot he was having an all star year now use good you have an online SO arrival in a three one he's definitely not worth three and thirty one million that's for darn sure by the way they've sold more tickets this year then they had the last three years combined and the up like it did their up fifty sixty percent in ticket sales senses science so is he worth three hundred thirty million hell yes he is it's a it's a Mars merchandising and okay well that's part of the deal is a part of a business right well I go as far as standings which he took price and put on the giant's today what what how much how much better with the giants be better clearly they would I don't want that runs because you'll think they'd be better at all they'd be better come on here Bryce Harper right now would be compatible to bury bonds because he would have the same amount walks in intentional walks because no one could protect him but they had Connor shown a bunch and nothing in in April they wouldn't they be I would say it won't but I don't think they'd be dramatically better that's my point but I think they'll be better I think it's I think I've said all along five to seven games better I think absolutely not okay because for me he Bryce Harper would have like a five hundred on base percentage and you don't think that would benefit the chat and set all that guy their line of gotten they've no middle the line up cans I think number two in the league and and outs on the bases right now what I'm saying is teams would not pick storm he has reached Hoskins he has JT real mutual behind me is jeans agora before in front of him and prior to that interment catching teams are not scared to go after him there because they worry about the damage agree done behind him I imagine this will in this line of that would have helped him it wasn't like they got somebody great without him they went with you know they've they've now found Slater in their system and he's now have a nice little run they found Dickerson and he's having a nice little run but I think they would be in five to seven games better with price but if they would have been worth not for that amount of money unless you're just looking strictly at ticket sales as far as impact on the team it would be better but not worlds better I get asked about Saturday night when caper was on the call Saturday night I'm watching on the couch and there's a pop up in the infield race morons pitching top six and singles hitter to pop up between home plate in the mount it was not a high pop up was kind of a low pop up and it should have probably been around his ball and if it wasn't morons ball the way we were always coach was Hey that's the third baseman's ball and let the third baseman take it and then on some teams it comes down to who is your most reliable infielder whose nearby and let that guy take it maybe it's your first baseman but in this situation everybody backed off Longoria didn't maybe didn't see it plus it wound up falling to buster and buster put his glove out and just completely with them the ball and fell and they and and I believe about pose he was charged with an air on a brutally difficult pop up for the catcher to catch it wasn't a big deal because Marada struck out to the the next player for the third out it didn't wanna burning the giants at all Buckeye pendant interesting on the broadcast he said he was talking about buster missing the the plane he said that's a baseball issue that the chase pictures out of catching pop ups and I wrote it down I figured you know what I know you're gonna be with me today I said I'll throw to Frannie and see what he has to say we think we think of of types line they're basically saying that you know base that baseball doesn't want pictures anymore catching pop ups and that's why there was all this indecision on a ball that maybe should have been more honest ball well I agree with kai because all always agree with Cape I think baseball with this wait what does he mean by that that when he is with a shared everything tell you because I love you it is baseball's issue because with all the ships and then take it like it's been a long standing thing with pictures I I'd say since I was playing pro all pagers Galloway lessons right on top of the mound and and you call it that's it it's a small short pop up that's why because pictures cannot be usually not the athletes in again K. them catching a ball back from the catchers is one thing it's the pop of Sierra but anyway William is a third baseman is the quarterback of the infield it's usually his ball or is it go to whoever the more sure handed guy well it goes the corner guys in in that in that case it was more in the third base side you'll be Apollos all Pablo's plane literally on the grass was Pablo Pablo right I was playing third he was on the grass in left field so he's playing deep it wasn't a highest pop up ever so him coming in Brandon belt was plain in the four hole deep because he's one of the few first base is only there to play that far over and still go over first thing canning was able to do there is no chance for him to get it it was either Maratha or buster the problem is yeah Marat on the now when you have a reliever on the mound relievers are always looking over their shoulder like well on anything that's happening they're not thinking themselves very rare you can have a a picture taking charge that's a reliever out there and he insists if you missed it if you were watching it Meron to looked up at it and then quickly kinda moved a few feet to the side as if to say to the other infielders somebody besides me take it and if it was a starting pitcher on the mound I would say some margin would had it bomb what I had it if you're going on starting pitchers there's guys that are looking for adults right that have the ability they also would recognize where guys are in the infield canonization from from Meron about we're we're Beltoise were his infielders were did not going to play right there that's just part of this is part of being really really get locked in on on one thing that's get the hitter out that one goes up you just assume I'm gonna move out of the way to me it's the that's part of the instincts of the game right that's part of adding that instinct we've taken away a lot of the instinct from youth I played all these club gains by plane yeah going to all these showcases that's not there's no instincts involved just play so for me I look at what rate is not to do it right there and that is exactly what type set the the it's a microcosm of what baseball has cost it's not allowing them to be a baseball player and you are that night the man on the field to use your defense out there right if you're a lever there's a problem right there get everyone all the way to catch something hello pop up it was kind of an easy it was only one easy play from Iran to difficult play have you ever been in that spot now I I can remember a couple times just me trying to catch pop ups in it if it's coming if the ball is moving away from you it's it's it's it's I don't know it's just it seems a lot more difficult and what you see my delivery was or Qatari oracle because the wind is the wind yeah it plays a huge factor that balls are usually at home plate that our star as a pop of that's where it ends up is warmer on to what so anything that's going away look it wasn't it wasn't a play for Pablo wasn't play from bell there's only two guys involved that one who has the easier play on that front yeah and yet he can he backed off early and then buster was just museum him murmuring to himself as going back to the back to the to the crouch by Logan take a time out we get we get Hank Shuman's gonna stop by next we'll talk little ball with Hank but they have this on the broadcast last night the the giant of course tonight's

"This portion of PNL is brought to you by pimco for investors who demand more than the markets deliver. All investments contain risk and may lose value. Consult your investment professional before investing. Welcome to the Bloomberg PNL podcast. I'm Paul Sweeney along with my co-host, the Brahma each day, we bring you the most noteworthy and useful interviews for you and your money whether at the grocery store or the trading floor. Find a Bloomberg PL podcast on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts as well. As at Bloomberg dot com. Here's some words for you. I think President Trump is a pathological liar. Every day. He's telling one liar. Another and it gives me no pleasure to say that. I also think he's a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic somebody who's getting cheap political points by trying to pick on minorities. That is what Bernie Sanders said in an interview with Vermont public radio as he announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. Greg Valliere chief US policy strategist for a g f investments joins us now. Greg no surprise. But what you make of how you rolled out. This announcement just think we're going to have a year and a half of this kind of rhetoric back and forth in Trump across hits back even harder. So welcome to the next election. It's going to be pretty ugly and Paul what's interesting. At least for me philosophy section like Bernie Sanders was out on a limb on his own. Now, he's not now he's not he's there's lots of company out on the left limb where he likes to play. But Greg thinking about it is a competitive, it's a very crowd. Added field where up to twenty some odd names on the democratic side. Where do you think Bernie Sanders best positions himself this go round? Well, let's be honest here. He's not a democrat. He is a south professed democratic socialist as never really joined the party. So he's out there. I mean, he's well to the left obviously, Elizabeth Warren will be as well. But there's a huge lane in the center. I think Clova char last night on the town hall tried to take some of that lane. I think Joe Biden will might even be a guy by the name of Bloomberg. So there are a lot of people who might want the middle lane. And Bernie makes it easier for them whereas night, Bloomberg is the majority owner and founder of Bloomberg LP. I'm so are we in for this? No matter what side because if you take away even this sort of popular socialist rhetoric you also have things like buybacks with Marco Rubio. And you have a Sanders and Schumer on that train to like either way, we're sort of headed. For the sort of collapse of Wall Street versus main street again. What's it? Good point, Alex. And I think that even Republicans feel that perhaps the tax cuts went too far for corporations in the very wealthy. So that's going to be fair game for just about everyone. But when you look at Bernie Sanders in particular and the candidates who were well to the left. I'll be damned if I can figure out how pay for any of this stuff in a maybe a little too. Exotic Trump is not lost that he made a speech in Miami yesterday in which like half of it seemed to be talking about how horrible socialists are what they've done to Venezuela. So he's gonna try to portray the Democrats as all socialist. I don't think it's going to work so Greg what do you think that Bernie Sanders needs to change from the last go round for him? Well, I think that he probably has to do a little bit better with African Americans. That was a weak spot for him. I think that you know, it his aides at seventy seven now he's gonna have to show a lot of vigor. You know, he can't get a cold. He's got to he's got to plow right through. I think energy levels are going to be important. Also sort of percolating on. This is all the rhetoric. We heard about these potential auto tariffs from the US, you had yada, European leaders speaking out against it. You know, I spoke to Michael's Aitzaz. He runs policy over at Morgan Stanley US public policy, and he said, look it's an issue, but it will be short terms is we had to Sam Bloomberg television earlier today potential, political circuit breaker, which is a couple of different bills that are going through the Senate right now on that could take back some of this terrifying. Authority from president before it's actually putting the place right now. I don't think that that's going to happen before this becomes more lives than it already is. But we have to watch that very carefully because that could stop it before it starts to your point. Greg is it you know, you went too far to one side. Are we seeing a world where the Senate and congress is going to try and pare back any power that Trump really has to push certain things forward? I think if he went for auto terrace, and there's a secret report that came out over the weekend from commerce to the president. And if he looks at it and says, I'm going to impose auto terrace. He could get a mighty mighty pushback from congress and not just from Democrats, so quick mint. So Greg Minton mentioning tariffs. What do you expect? If anything out of the trade talks with China that content at our ongoing, you know, I think that we probably have gone a little bit too far Pala we've gotten a little bit ahead of ourselves that there's not going to be a deal in my opinion on March one way too much stuff still to be resolved. I do think late spring early summer. There's going to be a big made for TV splashy theatrical meeting between President Trump and Z, and we will get a deal, but for anyone who's hoping for a deal by this much March one deadline. I think that's unrealistic. So you think we'll get an extension then at least in it. Yeah. I do. I don't think there's anything special about that date. They can push it back, you know, two or three months of does look like they're making progress. But there's not going to be a final deal without Trump in z. And it's too soon for them to get together. I think that comes, you know, two three months from now got it. Greg Valliere chief?

"Yeah. They say I understand nine to five says Harper advisory ninety five hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things say Bryce has been talking about his that we're going to shake, right? Yeah. It's a good thing. Maybe is that more is Morgan or Tim who says that that's? Shawshank PHD copes. Oh, really real donate to let that derail this Bryce Harper enthusiasm on way too involved in this this about me, right? I want to make this about Tim Robbins either. I wanna I wanna let it be on this show. Here's how we roll. We are super excited about the fact that Bryce has met with far haunt Barron bocce in Vegas yesterday or two days ago, and we're all excited, but the true stories that Adam copen wants this Bryce talk to subside. So that he can drive down the lane and DeMarcus cousins, my Kyle coups MMA on the argument we had about the three better minimum rule. Coves the honest. Would you rather you're talking Harper to the giants or you winning the argument if you'll admit you're wrong? I'd rather this because Bryce is still just an idea. I think right now this I have hard facts. I love this kid. An hour and a half ago. We were talking about the possible new rule of a batter pitcher having to face three batters minimum. And I said, okay. You know, what I'll take it? It's the baseball of my youth. Gary Lavelle, Greg Minton goose Gossage, you name them. None of this one off one off one off one off to go out there and pitch and Cope's goes, well, you can't have it both ways. If you're going to do that, you're gonna have to denounce Boches legacy. The man's entire legacy was built on the one out specialty as like. Not really I said, maybe on occasion. When you guys argue baseball. It's gonna be fun. You want me to do? Do the work. I said, yeah. Because I think you're thinking about the two thousand ten in LCS against the Phillies. Cope is not the kind of kid that's going to back down. I've noticed that. He ain't going to back down. He just handed me a about six pages. Seven page print out of every box score of the giants. World Series runs that feature times when bocce used hitters use pitchers to face one or two batters only. Here we go twenty ten LDS game too. He did it twice Lopez. Rama two thousand ten and LDS game for Lopez. Twenty ten has game. One Lopez twenty ten game two F L cassia thousand ten in game five Romo. Lopez Affeldt twenty seven World Series game one Romo. Lopez NFL two thousand ten World Series game to Lopez twenty twelve anti LDS Moda twenty twelve minutes. He s game two contests. Cassia twenty twelve DNA LDS game three Lopez two thousand twelve LDS game for me horas. Jose freaking me HARA. Be the craziest part about all. This is that that guy was on on and on and on. In other words, the three World Series runs were littered with time. You didn't get to the twenty sixteen copes? I was rur- rural. All right. Pretty good. That said I'm still not going to say that Bruce bocce entire legacy was built on the three or fewer bullpen move. Are you? I don't think the entire legacies. But I do believe that the reason a huge part of why they were able to win three world championships was his management of the core for no question. No, that's not even debatable. And if all the names, you just mentioned, I mean Lopez was like a dozen times in there, you gotta fill a bunch of times like his ability to save. This guy's got to go four hitters. This guy's got to go five. Yeah. Got to go to one. I think is maybe unrivalled by any manager in baseball. You start talking about those names and stuff, and yes, I agree boat you Madison beautifully, but how about how about just Affeldt in the postseason? You need outs. Go call Affeldt. Working game seven, dude. He was out there game seven getting some late today. Let the record show that today was the day. Huey Lewis came on. He was awesome. Yeah. That the Bryce Harper rumors kicked into overdrive or getting frothy in hand. It's the day that Adam Copeland just told Bruce Bochy. He's a one trick pony. A choke of a manager this now, I don't talk. Do. Creative. Tony checks. Only question is will the giants. Let Bryce where Dave Burba number thirty four. I think nice attempt at humor, Tony. But I believe it's Chris Stratton territory. Isn't it? It is on now some knowledge here. Yeah. Billy sadler. Maybe with a Bryce is gonna have to rip that number of by the wave only since this has become such a very weird moment in Murph and MAC show history where we're cross pollinating Stratton and Bryce I never thought it would come to this not even earlier in the show, but Murph I will show you I will make a big reveal right now on the program a confession of sorts from paulie MAC live before your naked streaming ears. Did you know that my tribute song was going to be nights in white Stratton? And that is honesty. John watts. This is this is what I call particles in years because they haven't been around and people think I can muster them up. It ain't like that. They come when they come and Murph right now, we got nights in wet Stratton. We got Bryson western we got thirty four swap through. This is crazy stuff going on at creative. Tony back me. We're this close to doing nights in white Stratton last year, and we just never recorded it. But now it's on the table. Do you brought it up? It's a lot of weirdness in the air right now. And I like this is crazy going do some blues for Bryce several reactions four eight I forgot motor was even on the squad..

"Entice him with the ball lena amount us foods that they understand working for something i if the dog has no genetic drive for balls toys whatever see if you can get him to have drive for something i and the easiest thing to use for that as foods as they at least understand what working for something like from there then i like to use frustration and i like to build frustration so you know every dog is going to have some prey drive to some extent even if it's so miniscule you can't recognize it like there is going to be something there that if you back the dog i put them on on a tether of some sort and use like a flirt pole with ragging and entice them with fluff from their face almost all dogs at some point you can get them to show some interest in it and that's what i would do to start is you know basically tease them with with toys with rags with you know things that are going to incite if there is any ounce of genetic prey drive whatsoever that exist see what caliber it's at now the dog understands what it's like to work for something if you can get that out of them and then build on that as best you can you are going to be limited by the dog genetics there's no two ways about it is that you you can't put something that's their that's not there but what is there you can maximize it just you know if there's almost nothing there then you're going to be maximizing so so little that you may not be able to do a whole lot with it and that that is a limitation that's genetic limitation that that you can't fix but that's how i would go about it jeremy which is at rages at the stars asks how can nutrition affect behavior in dogs fantastic fucking question jeremy and one that i find gets enormously overlooked in dog training especially as it relates to your average everyday pet owner the short answer is enormously you know just like with how how big of an impact nutrition has on us as human beings in terms of our behavior and especially kids it's one thing that i advocate for a lot is like with school lunches or kids that you know that that's the most important time to feed them really really super clean diets while everything of theirs is developing their brains their bones they're you know not just their bones being their entire skeletal frame or central nervous system thyroid all you know all of that shit it's it's especially important not to you know be living off of corn dogs and nuggets fucking cheetos and apple juice which you know so many kids doing i think that's why there's so many problems the dogs of same way especially when they're young but even when they're old or mature rather feeding them good clean diets ideally raw or freeze dried if it's done right and then you know good high quality kibble thereafter but yeah it makes a huge difference sodas keeping them lean just like i was talking about just a minute ago with the heat thing as a keeping them lean and and healthy makes a big difference to you know if you're being fed shit food and your grossly overweight like you're not going to be very driven to to work hard you know your cognition is going to be impaired physically you're going to be a train wreck and feel like shit like you're just not going to be as productive so feeding a good food and keeping them in an ideal body weight and conditions standpoint makes an enormous difference so a great question greg minton s thoughts on breed restrictions lots of apartments in reynolds won't allow my little buddy looks like he's probably a pit bull or or a mix.
