On the other side, Jared Goff. Alright, you take a look at what the day was 38 for 57 338 yards, three touchdowns but also an interception and it went back to the house because that's what happens when he plays the 49 ers. Three pick sixes in his last four games against San Francisco. Detroit had some offense just came up a buck short. The San Francisco wins 41 to 33. For Seattle. The trip to Indianapolis today meant that Russell Wilson had yet another opportunity to well. Show what he could do, although last year what they were saying more than anything else was less let Russ cook, let Russ cook well last year Rust cooked and did so to the tune of 4200 and 12 yards. So 40 touchdown passes tied a career high today. Apparently, you know the stove was going again. Second down and 20 Rust steps up in the pocket and he's going to let fly Deep downfield. Open locket. 10 5 Stumbles Pizza Touchdown, Seahawks. 69 Yard Touchdown. Tyler Lockett, his second score the day Holy Catfish, this offense, his explosives. Steve Rabel on Seahawks Broadcasting. Wilson throws four touchdown passes as you heard Tyler Lockett 100 Yards Receiving DK Metcalf got started slow, but he had a touchdown of Seattle wins over Indy, 28 to 16. After the game. That whole let Russ Cook thing was a little bit of a problem for everybody in Seattle, or at least for the head coach Last year, he's got a new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron and Pete was happy to give Shane all of the credit. The day to me, It really goes to shame. I think his first time out a chance to show it and, uh, really, really proud of what he was able to do, because he went for it the whole time, and we did exactly how we've been practicing. And how even preparing and, uh he handled was such such a cool, uh, overall mentality and all and, uh and he addressed We're just cooking and so Oh, I'm sorry. I said that just came. Scratch that dog on it. They were. They did really well together. That's out there. Parts out there, And in this world, it's going to come back at you again and again, Pete put Seattle does walk back to the coast with a victory indeed does not Their new quarterback Carson Wentz, through a couple of touchdowns, had a fumble loss. Two things to think about one. This is a team that needs to throw the ball downfield..

"Like when you're watching it. It was good to have it back. The games were good. But they're just I mean, the fans add the extra juice 100% 100%. That's a watch it it's like last night felt normal. The Super Bowl felt kind of normal because you had fans. Some fans there. But this past weekend in college football and what we got last night and in the NFL and then having fans back for Premier League games, if if you get down with that Like I do. It's just the fans make those experiences much, much better. On television, because that's how we consume it mostly. Now it's time Ryan time. All right. Let's everyone a good friend. Okay? Yeah. So last in line. No, uh, we can't get some deal. Come on. Let's just video equipment, fellas. Come on, Max. Somebody give me a little last in line. I mean, come on, 14. I am going to ask you to sing attempt to Tim Ryan, our good friend joining us once again here on these sports leader, Of course, Tim with Greg Papa bringing you all of the color and pageantry that is neither football here on KNBR one of 4568 e and K G 08 10 Big Man. How you doing, How you feeling? I'm doing well and feeling great Rod. It's It's good to hear your guys' voices. I heard a little bit of what you were talking about, and about the fans and and being back. We all know especially his players. It's It's absolutely the juice. It's the adrenaline pumping them. Get you in your heart rates down and a big reason why these guys do it. I mean, we're all showoffs. You know that, And then at the end of the day, it's the NFL football in general is not a studio sports, so The fans make it. We're glad they're back in and I would expect Ford Field is going to be rocking on Sunday. Hey, let's just dive right into it. The news today coming out that Taylor Decker, their left tackle the Lions he's done. He's got some sort of a finger issue, so it looks like We're assuming anyway that initial in his first game, it's going to jump over to left tackle. Do you think they give Sewell If this actually happens? Do they give him help off the rip? Do they see how it goes? Because, you know Obviously, the Niners are going to try and exploit that weakness with what they do best and let's get after the quarterback. Yeah, I don't You know, I'll be honest with you. It might be. It might help him because that's all he played at Oregon and he had clearly Struggled a little bit as you trying to figure out how to play over on the right side. It's a different stance. It's different kick. It's different everything. So, um, I'm sure he's going to be fine. If, in fact they do. Throw them over there at left tackle. They're going to want to run it and they're going to want to throw it quick. I mean, that's that's how they help them. They don't I mean, they might chip with the back. They do a lot of that where I call it, you know, check and check and release or 5.5 Men protection. So if no one's getting beat the running back, will release out and get out in space. So Um, you know, I think it's just about the quick game and I'm trying to get it out of golf hands and see if the 40 Niners want to tackle which I was pretty amazed in the preseason with the very few opportunities they have to tackle and practice especially live. How good sure and fierce the tackling was during During those preseason games. Let's go call I'm expecting a big run game and I looked at the numbers. Mostert, I think is going to go off. I think they're going to get I think they can just run run runs more. Maybe hit a couple big play action passes off of it. How much do you think we'll see Lance? I think we'll see him. I think that remains to be seen. He's going to be available on mean He's not on the injury report. So, um, you know they'll have They'll have something. I think Donald up for him. That remains to be seen. And Kyle's been really coy about it and really not telling anybody would have what his quarterback plan is. So, um, well, he just presents so many options and so many classic conflicts for a defense when you put them on the field and how you want to defend the run. You gotta count him as a runner. Then you're playing isolation coverage out on the outside, and then he's obviously a very good thrower, So it's kind of pick your poison. So I think that's the wait and see. But it's It's really exciting. I think that I think you're absolutely on it, though, and It's no secret that car wants to pound the rock. And when you look at a defense that you know they got, they got some good players. They got good edge rushers. There's no question about it. They got athletic linebackers. But they're learning a new system and they're going to want to be right. They're going to want to be disciplined. So Get the run game going, especially out on the perimeter, which is the bread and butter for the 49 ers, as you know, with the crack toss and the outside zone. And then all the play action stuff that's going the opposite direction off of it. So when we've seen it so many times, I think we could easily see Pound the run, Pound the run on the run. Now here comes the keeper off of it, and You got 10 guys going one way and George Kittle going the other and that's the problem. And against Jack could have a big game in the passing game. When you really look at what they are defensively and how they want to cover people so Uh, you know, I just think it's all about just doing their thing. I really do. I think when you look at this offensive line, that's 49 years. I think it's the best in the division. Collectively, when you look at all five guys and And look at the depth players so Um, you know, they don't want to be one dimensional and want to get into a lot of third and seven pluses and having to Blanco, Cora and trey flowers coming off the especially Cora. That's an old matchup from Notre Dame with Mike McGlinchey going against him, so Um And I love the matchup, to be honest with you. And I know they will not overlook this team, and people can say what they want on paper. I've seen that there are 10.5 point favorite or whatever this this team Has lost enough games in the last four years to understand that there's no gimmes in pro football, so I think they go execute do their thing. Um Should come out of there feeling pretty good, and it really reminds me of a lot of 2019 when going on the road for the first two. Both teams would do coaches new systems trying to figure it out. Struggled a little bit weak one at Tampa came alive and the run game week to a I'd love to see him. Click right out of the gate Here. Start this season off, right? I got you, Tim. I got Yeah. What's up there? Tommy T. Okay,.

"Find a way to make it work as long as those things hold up. While the Giants were playing yesterday, of course bags we in the in house feed and NBC Sports Bay Area we can see video of, uh Wilmer Flores and Donovan Solano, both running sprints and Solano is just coming back from Covid. I think he's gonna go on a rehab. But the floor is one was really encouraging to me because I had read and kind of thought that you know this is a hamstring injury that, he said for months. This goes back to earlier in the year, they really never quite healed. But he looked like he was busting it. And what a cab Tell you guys yesterday. He may be available at the end of this this road trip. Yeah, they're thinking Sunday. They're targeting Sunday to activate him and, you know, obviously they're going to have some some questions because Cairo Street has been playing great. And and he's kind of been the Solano on this team. And, uh, you know, Stephen Duggar made a huge difference, in course, and he's kind of been the Alex Dickerson on this team. And Kapler was pretty adamant. We want these guys back who are on the injured list. We're not necessarily going to just, you know, go with the hot hand we want. These guys have done a lot of for us, and we want them back on the roster, so it's going to be tricky Math and then whenever they get around to a post season roster, that's going to be tricky to, um, but but you're right. Flores has been a guy who's been just a great weapon against lefties and pretty good against right handed pitching when they've had to use them, too.

"Fifth. Twenty twenty one. Here's what's happening with your san francisco. Forty niners another. Practice is in the books and it was yet another sharp day for rookie quarterback trae lance according to matt barrels. He was seven of eight and eleven on eleven situations. All four of his deep red zone snaps ended in touchdowns it was a pass to jordan mathews zone touchdown on a hand off to win gaughman where lances fake held the defense as own keeper. Td where lance walked in on touched. And according to jason ponti the best throw of the day with a shot to the back of the end zone to symbol webster case. You're wondering jimmy. Garoppolo six of eleven incompletions and the red zone. Starting offense score touchdowns on one of four plays all. The momentum seems to be trending in one direction and that is in trae lances direction and that is not just me saying that. Listen to a couple of things. First we start with offensive coordinator. Mike mcdaniel who threw in this little interesting nugget about trae lance and how well he knows the offense. There is a an element of confidence that is unique. I wouldn't say he's he's loud or boisterous. He has a confident swag that. I think really appeals to players He knows the pressure that's on him like any other player so he really is really comfortable in his own skin. I'd say and he's getting to the point where he can correct other players which from a coach's perspective is all you're looking for you want a coach on the field. You know the the person that a receiver is going to listen to much more than a coach is the guy that's throwing them the ball so he's he's been very good with that and i think a lot of guys respond to that manson's ben with the team for a few months and he's already correcting people. That is exactly what you want to hear if you're rooting for lance to win the starting job. And what's more. Listen to this exchange between greg papa and matt maiocco on. Knb are on wednesday human covering this team in this league for a long long time. Have you ever seen a rookie quarterback this special no not even close not he's in closed no And yes i mean. I do want it. Pump the brakes. And just you know. Don't listen i get too carried away with it Because they've only practiced in pads two days. But it's it's everything is you know. He's he just has the right touch. You know he. He acts like a season pro. You know the way he's been so deferential towards jimmy garoppolo all the work he's put in those forty days he came he. He left the facility. He came back better football player. You know the forty niners. They'd sit on these forty days away. Let's work on some mechanical things you know. Here's some very specific mechanical things. We want you to work. And he did and he came back. He's throwing the ball accurately. He's throwing the ball with pace when it needs to be drilled in there. He's throwing it with nice touch when it needs to be just the last three days. I think it's been where he started running me and he just looks the part. If you've been a fan of the forty niners for a long time. You know matt maiocco does not exaggerate. He is not a hot take artist for him to say that means trae lance is looking pretty damn good couple stories beyond the quarterback now first off the entire forty niners. Coaching staff wore special shirts yesterday at practice with lynch and the number forty seven on the back and honor of gm. John lynch who's going to be inducted into the hall of fame on sunday. Deebo samuel was back at practice after missing tuesday with groin. Soreness nick bosa didn't practice but it was a regularly scheduled maintenance day samson abukar didn't practice no maintenance day for him though he was quote nicked up. We always give you something to read something to watch and something. You might have missed something to read on this thursday. You've heard me talk about how good d ford has looked. This year will go to niners. Nation dot com and check out the article from a cash on a roth and he took a deep dive into just how much e ford could help the pass rush this year if he can remain healthy something to watch one quote from defensive coordinator d'amico ryan's who went out of his way to praise. Strong safety tavon wilson and his press conference yesterday and when asked specifically if there was a competition between he and whiskey tar ryan said quote. We'll see what happens. That's not what you wanna hear. If you're jakubowski something you might have missed as you know. Forty niners open the season on the road in detroit. Here's lion's head coach.

"It's not one this rally contested. it's one point eight. One point three met corner. One point two seven post up his overtop guy staying like this point seven eight so you run your team down there and we'll see how long you stay with teams. They can play the other way so for thirty or forty years basically. We're playing the game totally wrong. One was the three point line invented since it was invented. We're playing the game. Teaching the game inefficiently wrong. So i want to read you this quote i mean and greg and i'm not gonna tell you what or who is from the quote is i've hated the three for twenty years. That's why i make a joke all the time. And say if we're gonna make it a different game let's have a four point play because everybody likes. Everybody likes the three. They'll really like the four people will jump out of their seats. If you have a five point play it'll be great. There's no basketball anymore. There's no beauty in it. It's pretty boring but it is what it is and you need to work with it and quote. Do you know who that quote is from. I don't gregg popovich and my question to you is. If that's the way you think. And i hate to say this about any coach gregg popovich. If that's the quote you're attaching your name to is the game literally passing you by because you don't want to play the way that others want to play and you kind of hate. The modern form of basketball enter begrudgingly trying to play that style then their quotas years old. I believe it was right around the time they won the championship by shooting attack. Two thousand eighteen. The quotas from two thousand eighteen from greg. Greg greg papa. John's point wasn't that that's the wrong way to play. His point was if we want to win. We have to play that way but from an aesthetic standpoint pure standpoint. It kills me that we have to play that way. And i agree with them totally and i think part of it is an age thing television. I probably around the same age. And you know. I was weaned on best while i was a huge expand back in the day. You know the team with havlicek can in russell and sam jones. You know hitting bank shots up glass and it was just an all around better game. I thought you saw you saw talented players. Doing more different things god. There wasn't an obsession with threes. And i thought it was a a more beautiful game to watch havlicek and we're gonna do. Havlicek was the most beautiful game when used to jog in to the arena from the subway station with a basketball under his arm. That that's when the game damn right. That's that's when the game was best in the nineteen fifties when the opposing center had a second job as a plumber right. When's the last time you saw lebron james with a best well under his are riding the subway to the gym. Am i right wittingham. Give me what you got here before. I get to that sound of chris russo. Yelling about havilcek. So cody can hear what he sounds like. Very quickly john havlicek and his first all star season shot under forty percent from the field. But also secondarily of the san antonio spurs. I understand what you're saying. Which is that in theory. Gregg popovich is not dictating his style of play based on his thoughts. But the san antonio spurs were last in the nba last year in three points attempted so he he is also and i understand. That's partly personnel. But i think even an ideal world he's not going to become the antoni no but i don't i'm not gonna sit here and make it seem grandpa. Popovich is coaching resistant to three point. Three point shot when again when they won their championship. That was a major major Piece of their arsenal their personnel. Obviously were a lot better at it than they had last year And by the way even what. Dan dan dan. Tony said dan. He was an assistant coach with us and phoenix. He's right in in the numerical values there but he's kind of ignoring in that kind of hard line stance that the reason why posts ups yields too low points per possession value. Part of it is. We don't have good posts up players basketball players. They don't know how to post up. They don't have good footwork. That's why when you see a yokich and he does it. We're all fainting. Oh my god. It's on sabu yet because nobody does it anymore and he has. He knows how to do it. So i would say not all postal equally second of all when he says we want to get to the free throw line as much as possible because one point five points per possession there. Well how do you think you get to the free throw line by posting people up and make another guy's getting fouled trouble sometimes the things that we do on a basketball court don't always yield immediate dividends. Sometimes it's the long con so to speak greg. This is what you sound. Like accept less entertaining. Less flamboyant less energetic as you long for a time before black guys played how. 'bout class mike. Mike sacramento's.

"This is the dan lebatardshow with two got spot casts a couple of reporters from the olympics to guts. And we have been remiss in not bringing this up yet because it is. And i don't care what anyone says about the world catching up. It is surprising to see our usa basketball team filled with all stars. Losing this way. And i know gregg popovich wants us to celebrate the french. Evan for free agent to be. Evan forni a and rudy gobert and nicolas batum and i understand what he is saying every time he says it disrespects the world to expect us to just go out there and blow everyone out but we have the best players we have the most all-stars we have the most accomplished coach and it is surprising to see them. Lose this much. Lose this way no matter what it is that you think about international rules handcuffing the kind of athleticism that our guys have that the other team simply don't have even though luca's line yesterday was was ridiculous. To god's forty eight eleven and five in thirty one minutes on sixteen two percent shooting. The world has caught up in a way that i believe is super surprising. Even as popovich tells us to quit being surprised but the headline on. Dan wilkins column in usa. Today after this loss was time to face facts nba. Coaching legacy legend gregg. Popovich stinks at olympic basketball. And joe vardon is writing to be clear popovich's horrified by his own record coaching this team. He dwells on it and hates the losing. The players are frustrated to grumbling on their way back to the locker room about quote running the san antonio offense when apparently they feel like they're better ideas and papa said because of the truncated nature of team. Usa's training camp. The offense would be based on concepts instead of set play. I don't care what the players have to say dan. I really don't. It just doesn't matter to me doesn't hold wait. Listen that offense was good enough to have them up. Double digits late night game and up seven with. I think three or four minutes ago and they couldn't put that team away. They have kevin durant damian lower. They have some of the best players in the world. They have a really really good team despite having javale mcgee on that team but they have a really good team. I don't want to hear from the players. I don't care what offense you're running. I don't care what who your coaches. I don't care what's going on europe double digits against an inferior team. Put the game away. I don't want to hear from that okay. You said that four times and you didn't hear from players. I was quoting writers there. Were there weren't players saying anything they don't want to hear the reports. That players are frustrated with greg papa. Jimothy game away. But you didn't hear okay. You didn't hear that. just fix it. I don't care if i'm coaching your coaching. He's coaching. I don't care who's coaching team. When you're up double digits on the french and the second half of olympic game. Put the game away. Thank you stu. Office was fine to give them up double digit. Okay you you mentioned all this. I would like to explore the next step beyond the easy stand. How embarrassing it is that. Our basketball team is losing more games than it ever has in this tournament. The thing that i think is so is. I believe popovich's olympic winning percentage is worse than it san antonio spurs winning percentage and all of the dismissive the condescension when reporters asked you questions. The grumpiness right whole hell of a lot less charming when you're not winning when you order looking like you have the clearly best players and you're not winning right when your smarts aren't doing anything when we know you have the best dudes like we're watching and we know who those guys are and what they are is not even -fornia. It's kevin durant out there looking in effective out of nowhere. right damian. lillard was bad bad. Yup i mean they have many open shots at the end of that game wide open threes..

"The weekend. And so, Yeah, I think that sharing sharing the space in a vehicle with people close to me. That would be really fun. But, uh, you know, a chargeable will be a close second. But yeah, so the Giants are down seven. Nothing. We were talking around the press boxes writers tend to do And so you were starting to say, I don't know that the D backs have this game locked down. I don't know that the D vacs are going to be able to complete this game with their pitching staff that they've got because they were rolling. Alex Young Corbin Martin, two guys of the chance of hit well in the past. It was kind of a piggyback game. We were talking as soon as they had that seven. Nothing lead. Tory Livello strategy should have shifted to like Game seven of the World Series. Bring in every reliever that you have, who you trust and just go from there. Forget that. You had a piggyback game when when you can. Seven. Nothing is the lead. You have to protect people. Forget the D backs. We will. Five. Nothing lead over the weekend to the to the Angels down in Anaheim, and I just think that That is a team that is really, really hurting. And so Mikey Stransky is home run. It couldn't have come at a better time for the Giants, but also couldn't come at a worse time for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who are just reeling after that, that took him to 21 in a row and Like we said, I just think that Mike Yastrzemski, even for all the difficult times he's had this season. He has not been the same player at the plate as he was in 2019 and 2020 hasn't been as impactful form of power standpoint, in large part due the injuries and all the nicks and scratches that he's dealt with, you know, chasing balls in the outfield, brushing up against the outfield wall. He comes through a big moments. He is a guy that you want at the plate in the eighth inning with the bases loaded down by three, and it was remarkable even though the crowd was under 9000 by that point in the game at Oracle Park, it was as loud as I've heard it all season copes and it was a special night at the art for sure. Yeah, definitely. I mean, it's one of the greatest comebacks, if not the greatest comeback in that ballpark, you know, I had to go back and obviously you know, the Giants Media relations team sends out a bunch of notes about to come back and it's his first grand slam of his career and I want to say after the game, he told he told On the NBC sports postgame show with with Greg Papa, he said. That's maybe the first Grand Slam he hits since he was in college, he said. I don't remember hitting one professionally in the minor leagues or at any point in the big leagues. So pretty big home run for him, But you talk about how crucial it was for him. He was sitting like 2 20 entering that ball game on Tuesday night is OBP was around 3 30, So PS was still up there and like the seven sixties or seven seventies, something like that, because he has been hitting the ball fairly hard. He's just not finding any luck. And when he came up in that first pitch that he hits the ropes up the right field line. Then he takes the 11 pitch that was kind of her. A meatball there, and I think people get a little nervous. But he said he was locked in and I've the swing. He put on that ball and cold Kipper tweeted it out on Wednesday morning to me after Tuesday night, I said the only two guys I see keeping that ball fair are Barry Bonds and and Mikey Stransky. Dude, the way he dropped the ball, the bat head on the ball kept it fair stayed inside, and he even had that little bonds walk. He kind of had to walk up the first base before he went into the jog. It was uncanny to me. From the left side and seriously one of the best wins best regular season wins. I can remember that ballpark in a long time. Yeah, there were so many different elements that went into that. But you're right the way that he kept the ball fair. That was not a bad pitch from Lamberto Castano's. Yeah, Yeah, exactly. It was low in the strike zone, probably exactly where he wanted to locate it. And you know, a good hitter pulls that foul. A great hitter keeps that fair and that's exactly what Mikey Stransky Did on Tuesday night. And one thing that I would just note is you know reporters haven't had the same level of access in in the past few years, so we haven't been showing up to the ballpark more than like an hour before games because we do all our interviews over Zoom. Will that change this week? And so we're out of the ballpark again? Our customary four hours before the game, And on Tuesday, four hours before the game, the only player on the field with the San Francisco Giants and the Arizona Diamondbacks was Mikey Stransky. He was out there with three or four different coaches working on his swing, doing a variety of different drill. Is focused on that exact bat path that he had to the change up on that pitch. So just it's a testament to the hard work that he put in and to be able to provide that level of detail. I thought was really fun for me to be able to see that Mike Yastrzemski was out there working on something specific on keeping balls fair when he's pulling them because he said, a lot of hard foul balls this season to the right side of the field. And focused on staying up the middle, staying through the baseball and then to see it play out in real time on Tuesday night, it was just like the culmination of something really special, not just for him, but for everyone in the Giants dugout. I think that gate Catholics said it really well after the game. They route so hard for Mikey Stransky because the work that he puts in and hope to have him be the one deliver that made it all the more special for the Giants on Tuesday. Well, this is the one thing about analytics to sort of get in the way. Sometimes it's when we talk about the R B. I write the opportunistic statistic where It's sort of random that you come up to bat with guys on base. You know, certain teams that sort of random to come up with guys on based on Brandon Crawford. We saw this note for him on on Tuesday night. They flash it up on TV that he was in 400 at one point with runners in scoring position, leading all the National League and being one of the best hitters in baseball with guys on base. By the way, I'm sitting here and they can be our studio recording this with you. And Here comes Bill Lasky comes barreling in here. Uh, my guy the cops and Crowley podcast sorry for the distraction there anyway, something to be said about guys who can hit with players on Based like I really do think the clutch factor is while it's not a tangible thing, and the analytics guys would kind of laugh at that. I do think there's something to be said about that. And I look back to the Monday game against Arizona, where they had tons of base runners in the first few innings of that game and really only scratched across three runs early before they broke it up in a little bit later in the game, But if you can stick to that game plan, and Dottie Ecker said it to Mike Yastrzemski on the bench in the first inning, stick to the plan, stick to the game plan. We can grind out these bats and we can come back and win. I just It's so crazy that even while Watching this game at home. I don't know that I ever felt like seven. Nothing..

"Looking for copes, you could listen to intended to Filling in for Greg Papa joining John Lund. Plenty of Giants baseball talk this week. And this morning, John is preparing to welcome the Chicago Cubs to town cubs are red hot, really looking forward? Setting up that series tomorrow. I do. Anticipate as fun is the ballpark was when the Dodgers came to town and giant sands were out in about We saw more than 10,000 crowd consistently for the first time. Jazz lost all three of those games that they beat the Cubs this week and I do anticipate it will be a fun. Syriza's The atmosphere will be a lot better. As we go throughout the month of June. You more texts. 415 20 out that you know Mark Willard and I have that little beef about what is today the segment that he does each evening. You wanted to point out that today is nationally National Rotisserie Chicken Day National Rocky Road Day National Leave the office early day. Like I said, Willard will find any excuse to talk about what is today. I will find any excuse to avoid it altogether. So thank you for that text. Exactly. Six rivaled Schyman in for real. I can't take one more Matt Whistler appearance. We've seen enough. And look, I do think that we've reached the point where the Matt Wisler experiment the giant have had with the right hander who's really only had one good major league season. I think time could be running out here. I don't know this for certain. But I do know that the Giants have job Rabia rehabbing and Triple a Sacramento Very good former ST Louis Cardinals reliever who they believe can help them. In the middle of this summer middle of this season. So far, the rehab appearances have been good. They added. Dom Leone to the roster. They've already brought up Nick Tropeano. You look the last week and save for Whistler and save for the three run home run that Tyler Rogers allowed at Dodger Stadium. That really shouldn't have happened if you remember Play that took place that Marie Siobahn couldn't feel the double play ball. I think the Giants bullpen has been a lot better over the last week, and there's just been some scenarios where it hasn't quite played out according to plan one thing that I did want to get to before Murph and Mac joined me. To preview their show this morning. It's Lou Gehrig Day across Major League baseball for the very first time. Major League Baseball. Celebrate Lou Gehrig Day on June 2nd, and it carries historical significance because it is that day in 1941 80 years ago, the Yankees legend passed away. Ls. At the age of 37. Disease for which we do not have a cure, and many across Major League baseball are working for a cure. So one of the most famous speeches in the major leagues Luke Eric, today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth. But I might have Thing given a bad break. I've got an awful lot to live for. Thank you. Course, that is a speech that transcends generations. And one that I am glad that Major league Baseball will recognize on June 2nd. Because LS has robbed us of so many lives. And has taken such a toll on society. And it is important that Major league baseball and Many other visible organizations step up and work to find a cure for this terrible, terrible disease, and so The Oakland A's or heavily involved in pushing for Lou Gehrig Day across major League baseball, in large part because Stephen Piscotty lost his mother. A last Remember a few years ago, when Stephen Piscotty was traded from the ST Louis Cardinals to the Oakland A's well he came home was able to spend a little time with his mother. Mother Aggression who died of a LS in May of 2018. And Stephen Piscotty was asked about his feelings about Major League baseball implementing Lou Gehrig Day across the league. And this is what the Oakland A's outfielder have to say. I'm not sure how I'm gonna feel from gonna be emotional whatnot, but I imagine all they'll be a lot of thoughts about my mom and Um, you know, really excited to celebrate Lou Gehrig and the man he was What a role model for for so many and somebody young, aspiring ballplayers..

"For Adam Copeland, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. If you're looking for your man copes well, he got the promotion to the big leagues, folks he's filling in for Greg Papa with John Lund. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week, so I will be in and when I'm in this seat that Adam Copeland usually sits in We almost always open the show talking San Francisco Giants baseball. There are first place team right now it is the most exciting. The Giants have been in at least five years and maybe more here in the Bay Area. But after Tuesday's clunker of a loss 81 to the Angels were to save our Giants talk for the next few segments, and we're gonna go into what I thought was really the most compelling sports story. Of the week. Thus far, it was Damian Lillard performance against the Denver Nuggets. On Tuesday night, Damian Lillard. Folks. I'm sitting in the press box and Oracle Park watching the Giants get trounced. And I have this new tradition where Ever since fans have come back in the ball park, one of my favorite things to do around the 2nd 3rd 4th inning. Let's go take a stroll around the stadium. Go check out the bleachers. Go walk behind the arcade. Look, look into McCovey Cove. See what's going on around the ballpark. I cannot get enough of it. It is tremendous have all the fans all the energy back inside Oracle Park and so The vast majority of home games this season. That's what I've been doing in the early innings going to say hi to people checking out the sights sounds scenes around Oracle Park. But I did not do that on Tuesday night because I was glued. To this Blazers Nuggets game. And for good reason. I think many of us were Lakers and the sons were just unwatchable. Last night is the Sun's won by 30. Chris Paul LeBron James both coming out of that game early for different reasons, although maybe LeBron James will say it's the same reason Paul was out with a shoulder injury. LeBron just disappeared during the fourth quarter, nowhere to be found. But again The Lakers and the sons were not the game that the entire national basketball audience was tuned into. It was Damian Lillard and his 55 points his NBA record, 12 Three pointers in a postseason game. What was most stunning about this performance was not the fact that Dame Lillard went off and the Blazers lost. We're accustomed to that we have seen Dame Lillard put a team on his back on Lee to lose many times. In fact, his postseason record again, Steph Curry. Oh, in 10, so we've seen it a lot through the years. What was most stunning. Was the way that the Denver Nuggets defended Dame Willard at the end of this basketball game. Michael Malone, head coach of the Denver Nuggets, is extraordinarily lucky. With the way that this game played out because He not only left Dame Willard Covered man to man at the end of the game. With a three point lead in the opportunity to Fallon, sending the line for two once he did it twice. He got away with leaving Daimler and open at the end of a basketball game. Regulation and in the first of two overtimes. His team picked him up. And that happens when you have Yokich the M V P That happens when no one else on the Blazers is showing a pulse in overtime. My goodness. How do you let that happen? To me. That's the story of the game. It is as much about Dame Willard scoring 55 12 3 pointers, one of those deficient shooting performances you will ever see in an NBA postseason game. 55 on 24 shots. 12 for 17 from three One of the best big game shooters in the history of basketball, or the best big moment shooters in the history of basketball, and you've got M P. J on him. At the end of regulation of the end of overtime. At least double him, at least for someone else to beat you. C. J. McCollum was having a terrible game got dribbled out of bounds and double overtime. How was he? Not the one with the ball in his hands. Damian Lillard 52 minutes on the floor. 55 points, one turnover. How? How does the man who is on the floor for 52 points? With the ball in his hands nearly every single play. Dish with one turnover that is on coaching. That is his much of Dame Lillard spectacular performance and superhuman effort. As it is on the Denver Nuggets, just saying Come and beat us. We're gonna stick to our own defensive game plan, and it did not work. 140 points, folks. It's a bad game. But the Nuggets have enough talent to overcome the Nuggets air really deep. They've got guys out there bench coming on and scoring 20 points. Blazers do not have that. Blazers have Lillard, sometimes McCollum and that's about it, C. J. McCollum postgame said. It's a shame that we wasted one of the best performances that you'll ever see. And, yeah, It is everyone in that Trail Blazers locker room. Should feel that way. Even Yokich on the other side of the floor. After watching what Littler did. His coach, getting away with an abomination of a strategy at the end of the game. Yokich tipped his cap. It was a pleasure on the court to witness that. I mean, how often does an opposing player admit that it was a pleasure to witness That type of a performance. Well, when your teammates score two points on one for four shooting in overtime and double overtime, that's how becomes a pleasure. No gets new. The only player that could hurt the Denver Nuggets their chances of going head 32 in that series was named Willard. And yet the Nuggets were still able to survive in advance there. Steph Curry tweeted at Daimler. That's all I have to say. Katie. Was just tremendous on social media As he has been for much of his NBA career. Kevin Durant tweeting I had like four tweets. I wanted to write to describe this All caps masterpiece by Damian Lamantia Ali Lillard Sr But I am seriously at a loss for words. That's pretty awesome when you've got one of the best pure scorers in NBA history. Using Damian Lamantia Ali Lillard senior in a tweet. That tells you what kind of night you had at the gym. Kevin Durant..

Was a swing and there's a drive deep into right field way back there, and it is gone on Mike Trout. Never Enters the picture in the ninth inning. Tommy list, Stella hits a home run over that now. Lower right field wall. And so it has happened again to Trevor God. John Miller on the call. That was August 17th time us. Stella with the walk off when he was of the Angels moves over to the A's, and now he crosses the bridge and he is a member. Of the Giants, and Tommy joins us, courtesy of the My guess line. First of all, Tommy. Thanks for joining us. Welcome. Well, you've already been in the bay, so welcome crossing the bridge over to San Francisco. My first question is so when spring training starts do you go up to Trevor gotten? Go Sorry about that, bro. Or is it just It happens, man, You've got some great stuff, and I'll be honest. All I was trying to do. There was not bouncing. You don't play with Mike on deck so Lucky You got one in the air, but, yeah, he's got a great stuff. Congratulations to you. And welcome to the Bay Area, And we remember that fateful Monday night. Well, when you hit the walk off, and that was a pitch, you know, down a little bit in the strike zone. I do want to start with your your contract and mainly The annual donations you're going to make to the Giants Community Fund. I mean 10,000 his first year 26 250 and 2022 57,500. Right away. And like your contract, it does stair step up. Just tell me about why that was important for you to do right out of the chute, Tommy. Sure. Yeah, well, the team approached me with it. Um, and I knew immediately have something. I want to be a part of it. Maybe I don't have all the details yet is Theo you know where the funds are gonna be going, But I am looking forward to being involved in Um, connecting with the people who are going to be spearheading these efforts and learning more about it. Formula. Stella joining us one of the newest giants, so it must be nice for you, though you did come over in a trade, obviously, from the angels to the AIDS, so I don't know how settled you got, But then all you have to do now is is cross the bridge. How nice is that? Yeah, that's great. I love the area. Um, unfortunately, last year didn't get to see as much of it is I would've hoped, But you know, coming over here over the years being the National League always really enjoyed the area. We'll get an opportunity to explore it a little bit more, but, yeah, I'm really excited about No ace fans were crushed. That whole week is Marcus Semien and just last right around the same time to go play for the Blue Jays, and I think the A's fans were hoping because they enjoyed what you did there and saw you Against them with the Angels in the American League West. Did you have any conversation with with Billy and a force their bars far customers coming back to the ace? Um During the all cities and, you know, I left that just tol my agent, But after the season had ended with spoken briefly, just be a text. Um they thanked me and You said that they would love to have me and you know that we would be in touch as far as you know any offseason contact Now, that was pretty much just left my agent. So tell me, what do you envision is as your role with the Giants. Yeah. Hopefully, a little bit of everything. Hopefully somebody you can play multiple positions. Um, get on base. Oddball little bit, Um, keep the ball in play. Keep the strikeout slow, I think His party. You guys in the lineup who have been around for a long time. Got a lot of success, so hopefully something of the table center for those guys. Firing was saying with the Brandon Belt surgery on the hell he may not be able to make opening day and he mentioned your ability to play first base. You can play obviously second base and you can play. Third. How much shortstop have you played and your your career and is second base your best and most natural position. Um It's tough to say I I really feel comfortable at 1st 2nd and 3rd. I hadn't played My short. Um, but, yeah, I'm comfortable with the other three positions. On. Do you know, flipping over the first base? If friends not ready to goes, certainly won't be a problem. Formula. Stella's Jonas News giant here on the SportsCenter. So a couple of things Farhaan Anxiety, definitely said that he was absolutely obsessed with your strikeout to walk right, which he absolutely loves. But he also said yesterday that you and Gabe Kapler hit it off so well that he's worried you're going to cut into his phone time with Gabe Capital. So what was what Z? What was what was the reason why you would engage got off so well? Man. He's Ah, yeah, I really enjoyed talking to him. We had a couple lengthy conversations, um, on a number of things, but He's very thoughtful. Um, he's a progressive thinker, which which I like and Give you something a little bit differently And ultimately for me, it was You know, some of the I felt like I could learn from and that was important in this decision for me. Hey, not sitting really Well, if your times I've interacted with him, he's really impressive that way, So he's gonna help you as a hitter, But you're already a really good hitter. And John mentioned the strikeout to walk ratio is just really impressive. You don't you know the modern game is just let it Let it fly. And you don't worry so much about strikeouts, But your hand eye coordination. Your ability to put the ball in play is so impressive, but you know, a few years ago in 2019 with the Angels you did hit 16 home runs and you know when you add it all up last year, double digits as well. So do you feel like, you know, being around Gabe and the way that they teach hitting here? You're not going to lose any of the you know, contact ability, but you'll be able to drive the ball even a little bit more. Just give me your thoughts about that. That balance between not striking out putting the ball in play but still having the ability to strike back and hit the ball out of the ballpark. Yeah, I certainly hope so. I think for me, I kind of let the flow of the at bat dictate my approach. Um, and also the guy on the mound and the situation. Um, it doesn't always feel like every That is a time to try and drive the ball. Um not that I'm not trying to do that. But I do like the count and the game situation kind of dictates What? I'm going to take a shot like that, Um, guys out there. He's got good stuff. I don't see the ball particularly well out of his hand. You know, I don't see it benefiting me to be taking on a swing and trying to drive the ball. I think the likelihood of that starts toe to go down in those situations. So in those instances, I'm more looking to put the bat on the ball. Barrel it and hopefully find the outfield grass somewhere. But I also think that you know an advantage counts being able to pick my moments and get my a swing off and you know, being able to play every day over the last two years has allowed me to get back to that. I think you know pinch hitting for those four years in Chicago was definitely a different approach. But Being able to be out there every day getting 45 babies. Had had help with that. We're speaking with Tommy Lowe. Stella signed with the Giants officially yesterday. What was it like out there in a pandemic being a free agent, and then I would assume you want to get things going. Obviously, there's discussions of may be pushing things back, which, what's your view on on one baseball is gonna get going. I mean, also, we were on track. You know all that stuff about my pay grade, but, you know, hopefully we're good to go. I'd say you know, this offseason was Difficult just with, you know all the uncertainty,.

"greg papa" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"Willard is usually a dinner crowd kind of guy, but he doesn't mind covering the luncheon He's subbing in for Greg Papa, with John Lund on KNBR, 1045 and 68 Sports leader. Giants lefty Alex Woods going to join us at 12 30 make an appointment for that. We just finished up a conversation with Sarah Bar shop. She was She covers the Texans for ESPN, and we're gonna have some more just on watching. I know you've been talking a lot about him lately. And this just comes across from Adam Schefter, Speaking of the NFL bathroom homes cleared certain steps Monday, quote unquote some big steps, but he remains in the NFL's concussion protocol with what is considered a concussion. It's too early to say he will definitely play in Sunday's conference championship, versus the Bills per sources. Because they they're they're not going to postpone this game. I mean, I heard this morning The people were saying, Well, you can't play back home. So of course you can. I mean, that's just the way it goes. If you're hurt, you're hurt. Doesn't matter the year if he couldn't play. It wasn't like it's not like they wouldn't play the game. But look, I give a ton of credit to Chad Henny without a couple of plays that he made. Kansas City probably is not in this position, but Look, I'd like to see him play. I like to see all these guys playing full strength. I know in Kansas City beat San Francisco last year in the Super Bowl, but I want to see Patrick Holmes play He's playing. I'm almost I'm almost sure of it. The fascinating side of this to me. Is kind of a Vegas angle where I was confident that this would be off the board when when things launched yesterday because we didn't know Patrick would play. Obviously, that's a that's a point spread mover. If he's playing or not, Don't you think the bills would be favored if you knew he was out? And if he is favored or if he is playing, aren't they favored by Maura than how it came out? It it it opened it. Three. It's moved today to 2.5. I feel like they just probably knows what's going to go on on dwelled. We sort of don't the indications are that he'll play but isn't it if he's going to play and the numbers 2.5? Are we saying on a neutral field, the bills are better than the chief's. It's a weird dynamic right now, but Kurt Warner came out today said he texted with Patrick Patrick told him he's good to go. The Chiefs are planning him for him to practice tomorrow. He's already cleared the first stage. Of concussion protocol. We're not even sure if he has a concussion. That was a really weird, weird injury, whether it was a nerve concussion. Apparently, there's a foot thing, too. But anyway, whatever is going on It sounds to me like it's tracking tour playing, and I'm with you, like, Let's see it. Let's see Mahomes versus Josh Allen. This is what we signed up for. Yeah, yeah, I'm looking forward to it. I think both games gonna be great this weekend. As far as the Shawn Watson again. I know that Everybody's talking about it. Everybody wants to put him in a 40 Niners uniforms in the Bay Area for a great young quarterback who's 25 years old, and she put up a great point. Which was? Look. Does the Shawn Watson want to go to another team? Yeah, this to Shawn Watson don't want to go to another team. That then has has given up so much that maybe they're not in contention. Because my first thought is look is great is a nick Bosa is if you wanna throw Nick in and the number one. I do it. If you want to throw in Fred Warner and a number one. I do it. That's how big the quarterback position is. Because if I'm Houston, and this is why I laugh again betrayed when all these guy all these teams like, you know, Houston gets all these pics back because of James Harden or okay, see, gets all these pics when the trade that they made Those are lottery tickets. And if you're at the end of the draft, they're not even good lottery tickets so you could trade to Shawn Watson for three number ones. But I'm not trading a 25 year old quarterback for three lottery tickets. You got to give me somebody back. You gotta give me a young, great player back. So let's say I'm calling the 40 Niners. Nic Vos is the first name that comes out of my mouth and a number one pick or Miami is the one that makes sense to me because they have the third pick. They have a quarterback that would come replace my guy and they have a 2nd 1st round pick this year that you've got to get something. In addition of two lottery tickets So the dish on Watson's that good, he's 25 years old. He's one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Well, I agree. Now remember a few things in this dynamic aid to Shawn's got a no trade clause. So he's gonna have some say as far as where he goes, which is really, really important, and we've already got one report that maybe he's got eyes for Miami. I don't know what Miami really thinks about two, a tongue of my lowest, so that's That's part of the equation as well. But you said it if I'm Houston, I'm not only looking for picks and players because by the way, remind her they've got no first and no second this year. Their first pick is 63. If you're new regime coming in, don't you want some pics? Especially with the salary cap lowered? You're going to need that cheap labor. I think they'd love to have some pics. But my number one question is Wolf. We destroy it if we tried to Sean, who's our quarterback? Well, this is one of the reasons I've been on this so much. Their new GM is Nicholas Ario. He drafted Jimmy Garoppolo. He's been the Patriots player personnel guy for 12 years. If I'm the 40 Niners. I don't know if this is enough to get it done. But if you call the taxes and you can offer Jimmy and your next three ones I would do that I would do that. And I I wonder if they might be, um, wooed by that, especially if to Sean says Here's three teams I'll go to in the 40. Niners are one of them. Which might be the case. So look, there's a lot of ifs in there. But to me, that's realistic offer. I do start to clam up a little bit. When you mentioned the names both on Warner, I agree with you. It's not that I disagree with you. But That would be hard. It would be really hard to part with either of those guys and I agree with you 100%. But I guess what I'm saying is, if I'm Houston, I have a situation that is so unique and that I've got a 25 year old who's not even in his prime. He's exactly what everybody is looking for. Now. He's got every trait you could you could possibly want. He's not a bad guy. He just doesn't like the situation which I don't 100% respect. But he is, by all means from what everybody says A good guy is a good word, right? He's 25 years old. He can throw it. He can run he can get into a shoot out. He's has playoff experience. This guy's gonna be your quarterback for the next 10 to 12 years. I love Nicholas. I love Fred Warner. But you've got to have a quarterback you trust in the building. And I think with Kyle, you look at that. You think cheese, but what you pointed out. It's perfect. Because if if for some reason they loved Jimmy, they said, Well, jeez. Then we don't have to take a quarterback. I know it makes Jimmy tick. And the nineties give up three number ones, then to Shawn Watson saying, Okay, I go to a team that's still a Super Bowl contender because look during the season I got told to say injuries, injuries injuries, But the reality is it's injuries. Now look, and this offseason they have a ton to do to sign guys. But I have confidence in this front office, and I think they'll bring the right guys back now. It does hurt that solid gets that job of the jet because they don't have a full back is just gonna go there. You know, there's certain places he'd go. You know that That's gonna be problematic..

"And finished with 2097 on Lee. Eight yards, Dickerson and then I know for a fact. Polly, I can joke, John always get Terrell Davis. Did Dave got? Hey, copes. As far as I'm concerned, we're almost done with this. This is like you just be like Draymond. You just feed the ball to Steph. Yeah, Don't Don't look, Don't come off your picture will just stand there. Four of the eight Eric Dickerson. Adrian Peterson wanted to use like that said he was gonna do it. It isn't there. O. J. Simpson, number eight. That's three. And then you also not too Terrel Davis, number six, So there's there's four left, and one of them is very obvious because it's yesterday. Right, Right. Okay, So so their cameras, Eric, and now we're down to three guys. Who's that other dude? Jamal, not Jamal Anderson. Maybe not. You know what? I can't remember that Jamal Jamal Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens said he was gonna do it like cold, and then he did it. 2066. He's actually third all time. The last 21 is obscure, and one is an all time Hall of Famer. That LaDainian Tomlinson. Well, one is in all to some would say the greatest running back of all time. Very Sando. Sando department is the other one. How about this? Sanders, the other one of Titan. Dude you copes Finished. Johnson is a C J to K is home. Hold smokes. Wow, What a great That's a good one. Chris Johnson in 2009, Tennessee. Time. It's a great list. That's a very good one. Adrian Peterson to Jamal Lewis three. Barry Sanders for Derrick Henry 5 12 Davis. Six. Chris Johnson, 70. J. Simpson ate the two that I think would always get people would be Chris Johnson and Jamal Lewis. We should go. One school. I think I remember that happened 2009 for screenwriters in 20 or three for Jamal Lewis. I'm gonna take a guess here too, because we're just talking a rap sheet about great running backs and they don't usually get the M v P even if they deserve it, like is the juice the on Lee M. V P on that list. Great question did very different. Everybody he must have. He must have. But I can't be real quick if you want. I know we're late on the clock. We could get to the city you have to. And I'm just assuming that O. J. Simpson was the m V P ants, everything. There's no way he couldn't have been a VP and 73. I mean, he had to have been 1973 0 J. Simpson was the MVPs you had to have been otherwise toward a world that was truly BP from 73 Peyton, one in 77, Earl Campbell and 79, Marcus Allen and 85. Thurman, Thomas and 91. We go, Dammit Smith and 93, Barry Sanders and 97, Terrell Davis and 90 eight's. That's two right there. Marshal Foch in 2000 and Shaun Alexander in 05, Adrian Peterson and 12 piece of three of those Peterson Uh, Peterson, Davis, Sanders and O. J. R all But Dickerson Dickerson did not get it Dickerson and get it. So four of the eight For the 8. 48 came. Yeah. There you go. Great stuff. Yeah. Congrats. Derrick. Henry. Good. Thank you Cope. Stouffer nail on the names on the list. That's what I'm talking about. I want to shake your head copes culture inspiring a segment with the horns and the Murphy back Show is Come on its 2021.

"Do anything with him I think when he's one hundred percent and he knows he is that's when you'll see him on the court that could be. Halfway, through. The season yeah, exactly I think we're I think at best we're looking at maybe the end of December and I. Think warriors team again he's really just gravy to already a historically. Great team dominant team so if they have to wait all the way till after, the all star break. They, will do that now if, you, get boogie, cousins even let's say fifty to seventy five percent of what he was, that is extremely frightening thought. Even Seventy-five percent boogie cousins is fantastic especially in the postseason, I get. You but seventy five percent coming off an. Achilles I think that's a lot to ask for as well so we don't know exactly what kind of player we're going to get with the Marcus. Camby, are. Is the number, so yeah we're going to be talking with karnal attornal coming up in just a couple of minutes. And then at the end of the hour we're gonna talk to. Matt maiocco I do want to at some point get to the Mark Davis statement, he made about letting. Greg, Papa Gautam floors was let, go as well, so the entire broadcast for the raiders games going to be very interesting, next year As a raider fan and talking to raider fans that away Cambier isn't. It Mark, is Mark making it a little bit difficult for you to root for this team as. They have their last little bit here in, the bay area is making it. Difficult to be a raider fan because, I think he is for me. Anyways as much as I do bleed that team and I love the. Raiders since I was a child when they came back in the mid ninety s I mean What do you want me to? Do Mark you're giving away home game so they can go play across the water. In London I mean just the way that you've you've acted in Las Vegas Why why why can't you go get? A guy that's yours why do you have to go get, Brent Musburger a name if you wanted to get rid of Papa which is going to irritate the fan base because irradiates me and Flora's why can't you bring, on a guy and go through tapes of play by play broadcasts then have your guy instead of Musburger who I don't even?
