"Respect up from the Chicago Cubs. He also was with St. Louis this year. He had a one in three record with St. Louis in 16 games with the caps he was all in one. Bobby says taking his warm up is there a joy to make his initial appearance for the Philadelphia. Rob got his start back in 1949 where the Philadelphia athletics, then in 1952 Bobby was the most valuable player in the American egg with a 24 and 7 year for the Philadelphia athletics. That's where I thought I'd better give up. That's the year I quit. Yeah, right. I was wondering whether you considered coming back so you didn't end on that note. Send me a contract, but they wanted me to come back, but I said, no, Jean, I've had it, but I ended up going and getting the net dairy barn of Boeing. It would show us our catcher for the athletics. And we opened up a open up that business. So I had already started doing that. So I said, I'm done. I quit. Asking me to always pretty nice of him. Right. And guess the one thing we didn't talk about was your memorable All-Star Game moment where you struck out the side, right? Struck out, Stan Musial, stuck out Jackie Robinson and what the heck was the other guy's name that for the Giants? Isn't that something I can't even think of? Who the hell am I pitching? That's just I had a goddamn stroke. I sometimes I start talking in every my mind starts wandering. It was whitey lachman. Why are you laughing? Yeah, how can I forget that? I'm just getting old, I guess. You wanted to come back out for another inning, right? But then it started raining, I think, because we cut rain down. I never did get a chance to go. I don't know. I don't think I would ever caught call. Oh, he had his truck out by, I think, and the ball is nice. It's a nice career. I really had a great time. Yeah. Oh no, it's incredibly you played for so many great managers and with so many great teammates and face so many great teammates and just really an amazing career. You did so much. I think I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I really do. Well, I'm so glad that I caught you here. I didn't even mention you were part of the Lou Brock trade, too, right? That famous lopsided trade you went through. And then the night pitched to get used to it against the cubs, the new black was the first guy I pitched to. But we need to come to level the two of that game. Wow. What was the heaviest you ever wear you think during your career? Because I read a 139 pounds, which was that your actual weight or whatever. I still weigh a 138. Wow. Okay, you can fit into your uniform. That's great. I think the most maybe I don't know if the most important take for the luckiest thing I ever did was being picked up most valuable player in America. They got so I thought that was the most very nicest thing I ever had happened to me. Yeah, and to win all those gold gloves that I thought it was funny, there are a few years ago, a reliever named David Robertson in his contract, he had an incentive, you know, if he wins a gold glove, then he gets a bonus. Who is that David Roberts? David Robertson, yeah, who was on the Yankees for a while and he was on the Yankees. I didn't know that. Yeah, and I thought it was funny because, you know, relief pitchers never win gold gloves anymore, but you did so many times. So I guess you were just so good that they had no choice, but to give them to value, I'm lucky. I've been lucky all my life. I really had a great life. I think I'm the luckiest guy in the world, not Lou Gehrig, huh? It's you. They might have been a little lucky or maybe I don't know. I kind of doubt it though. I might have been the luckiest, I guess. I did read about a game where you said you were starting for the Philadelphia athletics and I think you had a complete game victory against the Yankees. And I think you said you might have thrown 350 pitches that day. That was hard against the Yankees and I guess that was a 52, I believe. I'm not sure if it's 14 innings and we'd beat them two to one. Man, I dykes when to take me out of that game four or 5 times because I had no I hadn't been on it for 5 of them. We kept getting out of double playbooks and they hit line drive, right at somebody, but I said, I know I'm both and wasn't quite so good. So I said, I didn't tell him that, but I said, I'm standing, this game if I can, if I can possibly make it. And I ended up we ended up we got to run into 14th ending and I am like I'm out in the end of the 14th setting and we beat him two to one. 300 pitches, I guess. Things are a little different today. Pictures don't work that way anymore, but did you like starting better than relieving? Or did you like doing both? Yeah, I really did like starring pitching. I like to start. I love this tour. I thought I was going to start a few more games with the Yankees too, but Casey kept me in the bullpen most of the time. I guess we started. I can't remember how many games I started with the Yankees of it. I think it was about 7 or 8 or 9. I'm not sure. They had some good starting pitchers. And they had also they had good pitching in the bullpen too. They didn't even need me. I don't think they had Louis Louis royal and bob Grimm and good pictures obtainable penny. Yeah, your first year in New York 57, you actually started 21 games. With the Yankees? Yeah, you pitched 30 games. 21 as a starter. So I didn't know that. I didn't know that I started that many games. Holy crap. Yeah. That's news to me. I really realized that I started that many games. I think whitey was having a little trouble waiting for was having a little trouble with his arm at one time. And I think that's why give me a chance to start, I believe. I don't know. I can't remember starting that many games. Were you someone who enjoyed the nightlife with mantle and Martin and all those guys? After a game I ever seen, I never seen whitey or yogi or Hank Bauer or mando for any of those guys. I haven't seen them till the next day. Well, maybe that's why you're still here at 9 to 6. Some nightclub, guess what I read in the paper? I don't know. Yeah, well. They were all good, but you guys are really good guys. Well, thank you so much for your time. I'm so happy I caught you here and I wish you a better health, whether you make it to the induction ceremony or not. I hope you stop mowing the lawn. My kids want to drive me up there, but I just can't go. I get dizzy and I'm sometimes I don't even know what the hell I'm saying. So I don't want to make an ass out of myself. I better say right here where I'm still living pretty good. Well, I hope that you continue to for a long time, but thank you so much, it was such a pleasure to talk to you, Bobby. Okay. Thank you for calling. I appreciate it. Thank you. Bye. All right, bye bye..

"And interviewing the players after the game in the locker room and all that so it was really neat but one of the things that was kind of challenging was that i was not allowed to show in any way shape or form. That was a charger fan So i ended up wearing a chargers t-shirt underneath my suit To try to skirt the rules and and have my phantom still present their invesco field. The press box was unbelievable as well. I got to meet san diego legends. Like larry himmel and hank bauer and the food was amazing and we were in control of the game for most of the game. We were leading at halftime. Twenty four to six and there was an omen in the first half. That probably would have been a good indicator of how this game was going to go on the chargers i possession on second down. Philip rivers throws a short pass to. Chris chambers chris chambers catches. It gets down on the twenty nine yard line and champ bailey. Strip some of ball. The broncos recovered the fumble looking at the replay. It was obvious that chris chambers elbow was down before the ball came out and so Dick and bergen randy cross announcers at the time looked at the replay. We were all looking at it in the stadium on the big screen and it was pretty obvious that it was not a fumble at hockey was the referee that game and i think he probably of all heard of the infamous hockey game. This is what i'm referring to right now that that game was this game. The chargers go to challenge the play but the replay equipment wasn't working and they only had two minutes to complete the review and the delay took more than two minutes. So at hockey made the decision. That the call on the field would stand..

"This is giant baseball on KNBR, 1045 and 6 80 stories leading And what a beautiful day at the ballpark Today is a Giants open up as they've said their final home stand before the All Star break. It's the Cardinals for three, the vaunted ST Louis Cardinals. And then the Washington Nationals. And that is the All Star break. Giants in first place. 53 30 83 games down 79 to go. It has been quite a ride so far. Mark Simon joins us from sports info Solutions Marquet Simon says on Twitter and I Love having a mom. We have so much fun with Mark, How are you today? Good. It sounds like you're trying to run out the clock a little bit by saying 83 down 79 to go. Well, there was a point where we said, you know, there's 100 down and six well, 62 down and hundreds ago. So, um, you know, it's funny. You bring that up, But the all Star break is sort of that traditional. Let's take a deep breath and see where we are. And the Giants really are 53 30 and you know, as Bill Parcells said, You're a New Yorker. Eventually you become a New Yorker. But they said you are what your record is. Yeah. And, uh, it gets to a point where I do think that you have to take it pretty seriously, especially at 83 games. They would have to have a pretty significant collapsed to, you know, not Not even finishing in the hunt for a blood spot. But like there's been some significant overachieving that he wouldn't have necessarily expected. The guy who pitched yesterday. Certainly being one of them. DeSclafani Tyler Rogers. Being basically unhittable would be another, uh and they've survived things like belt going down. Mont Wade comes in steps in and they have The thing that I have liked about the approach that Farhan takes is like there are these pieces that you can just plug in, like, okay, We're gonna plug rough and Flores universes, lefties and they're going to make us formidable versus lefties, and he it feels like they it feels like a very similar strategy to what the AIDS do and did. And it really it works good for them. Well, it's something that's happened in baseball for many decades. I mean, it goes back to John McGraw. Casey Stengel did it exclusively with the Yankees and Hank Bauer in Gene Woodling. We had Earl Weaver doing it with the Orioles with John Lowenstein and then Gary Reineke. So it's nothing new. But when they produce, it really looks good. Because you say Here's one position and you start to double those numbers, and it looks pretty good. Well, what about these go funny? Eight and two thirds last night. I assume Gausman will not be on the All Star team. Your guide diagram will not be on there, either. The Sclafani this is Is he a good fit? I imagine he would be Yes. So it's funny. The all stars starting pitcher list is pretty crowded. Like there were some really good guys yesterday that didn't get taken. And I guess in my head I was thinking that there would be more more guys that were taken didn't actually work because sure there wasn't taken to one e R a N 90 Foreign bueller wasn't taken 235 in 103 innings. Freddie Peralta from the Brewers. Yu Darvish from the Padres, Taiwan Walker from the net. That's like five guys right there that like you could probably make a case. DeSclafani belongs in that group of like six, but you wouldn't necessarily put him at the top of that group. So I guess the natural thing that would be is if Crossman declares he's out, just replacing with a giant and then well, then you you have the option of him or Tyler Rogers, Certainly, But here's the thing with the pictures. There are 19 pictures this season that are essentially starting pitchers. In the National League that have, I think initially that a sub three year age that's a lot of guys like squeezing all those guys in its hard I can. I can understand why a lot of guys feel like there's some today. Well, you're exactly right. Mark Simon with us. That list is very impressive of the pitchers who are not included. But if Gausman doesn't go, how do you Ignore 53 30 and the guy who you know could have 10 wins by the time this thing happens. What about Rogers? Though there are a lot of relievers on the staff. I'm not so sure Rogers gets picked. Yeah, well, I'll say this, though, if anyone so if anyone begs out, I think Kenley Jansen would be next in line. He's got. I think it's the same era basically and Rogers 135, and he has 21 saved, so I don't think you continued with that. I think he's legit to go Rogers this kind of in that next best group after Kenley Jansen and I would think that if a guy or two goes down that you could see him. In, um, we're talking, though. There's TJ Antone from the Reds. There's a weird one. Ranger Suarez from the affiliates has great numbers. Uh, I feel like the guys that they picked were like legit. Especially considering what you afternoon you get one that every team Um, so I would say tellers got a shot, but he's not. I don't think he's first in line is Diaz from the Mets to see you in there? Um, you know the mess. We're left with just a gram. So about, uh, but Edward, so Edwin Diaz would be another certainly formidable candidate. He's had a couple of little blips this year that push his numbers. Like into the not as good as Rogers range the areas to eight Um again, you can look at other numbers, the strikeout to walks 4 to 1. He hasn't allowed a home run in 31 innings, so he's definitely like I still think Kenley is next in line. But, uh, Diaz would be in that kind of that mixed depending on which way it would go. Okay. Very good. Hey, Darren. Rough look against left handed pitching. I'm in a big home run for him last night. He did spend time. You know, across the pond as they like to say in the Pacific, and he's come back a former Philly and let me tell you he does damage to left handed pitching. Yeah, It's crazy if you go back to, so if you take the two years that is back now and in two years before he left for Korea, his slugging against lefties is like 600 something. Which would put him in the top 67 guys against lefties if you bring the at bat Down low enough like he's It's basically like an Aaron Oddo's slugging percentage for him against left handed. Pitching with him was very small set of games, but it was funny when I saw that pitch that he had yesterday. I was like that's basically a meatball for him like if you couldn't have served it up any better, and I wanted to say something to about this that home run. Don't run impressed me more than some of the other ones that I've seen. And I know Slater is hit a bunch this year because it was and later had one in the game to it was so far beyond that left field wall. It was like 70 80 ft. Beyond that left field wall. Just that was really impressive Poke. That he took last night. He's got to hit at home. It's a very important that he did He hit it home. Yeah, and it's crazy. But the home roads good friends don't make any sense. Like, um it's he's like a shell of himself. In in 18 K. It's like, you know, too low 200 batting no, him. No home run hitting everything for him has come on the road, which is just I think that's just Like Even I talked about fluke sometimes and that, But I'm wondering if that's just a.

"Brought to you by Bristol Myers Squibb and Fizer. Welcome back to so five stadium in Los Angeles, where the New York Jets pull off a huge upset as they beat the Los Angeles Rams 23, 2 20, Larry Kahn and Hank Bauer. Glad you could join us and Hank, you know when you look at this game, obviously a huge win for the Jets. I'm sure some jet fans will be very upset because it doesn't assure them of having the number one pick will be a tiebreaker if unless again either Jacksonville, where the Jets could win another one of their final two games. But I think when you look at this from a ramp standpoint If you win, then you could win you win today. Then you win the division with a win next week in Seattle. They still control. I don't like say, Say it Now. You don't ever control destiny because it's destiny. But their control their path. Let's put it that way. Like if the Rams win next week in Seattle, they will be one game up with 11 to go, and they will have the tiebreaker with the Seahawks. So if the Rams went out bottom line Rams went out a win in Seattle next week and a win against Arizona the following week. Then they win the NFC West had they won today than a win next week would have clinched it. So you lose today. Now you gotta win the next two. Seattle's in the Good spot as well. They're playing at home, although there is no real Home field advantage without that, 12th man, the crowd. It's a great finish, and we're gonna be there next week. Well, Seattle's been really hot at times and really cold at times and The shocking thing to me surprising thing to me today was I thought there was a huge mismatch. The Rams offensive line, which has been so good right? I thought that they lost the line of scrimmage, at least for the better part of the first half, like right when they fell behind three quarters through three quarters, right and Williams got hurt. That's kind of changed things. And you gotta wonder what you know Seattle might do because they're pretty good up front defensively, and I just Just watch the game They did, and I was struck. First thing I said was, wow. They look a lot better than they did to me their front. Forefront three. Well, there's a guy by the name of Carlos Dunlap. That just got hurt. No, they're just got that came in from Cincinnati. That has made a huge difference with that Seattle line, and he had a big sack at the end of the game today in Washington to help beat the Washington football team. And Carlos Dunlap has really done a lot to help turn things around for that Seattle defense, which through the first half of the season was on a record setting pace, not the kind of record you want to set a Zafar, his yards allowed and things like that. They also get penny back the running back today, I guess look pretty good. The ramp seem to be able to beat the Seahawks, you know? Yeah. Did the game here earlier this year in L. A. The first game of the The two game series one in L. A. Obviously in one in Seattle and Rams dominated that game. The final score wasn't total domination. But you kind of got the field that the Rams defense knows how to slow down Russell Wilson. Don't know that you could never stop it. But as you said, getting Penny, the running back back helps, And you know what? It's a game for possibly the NFC West Championship and you can't get anything better. Well, Golf just can't make mistakes on the road. I mean, it's a simple is that he's kind of in a rut. You're in a bad streak, right? He started turn the ball over a little bit, and And he's been prone to do that shot me. They called him out after a loss here to the 40 Niners couple of weeks ago, and he said, We cannot have mistakes like that from our quarterback, and he got away with one in the fourth quarter today on a ball that may should have picked off. And it deflected off his hands. Rams got a big gain out of it, but again God for the bad interception early in the game. I mentioned it earlier, and it's worth mentioning again. Rams coming into this game, 21 giveaways tied for 25th in the NFL, every team with more giveaways in the Rams. Has a losing record. So the Rams have been winning in spite of the giveaways hard to do in December, and particularly in January. That's And you know the thing? Yeah. Come to think about it. And again the mismatch. I thought the Jets offensive line was gonna be, you know..

"This is extra sports 1300 welcome back to so far where the officials have looked, and Cam Newton did not get into the end zone. His left foot was out of bounds inside the one Saw the Patriots will have a third and goal from inside the one yard line. Larry Kahn, Hank Bauer, Hank There was a reason I didn't call touchdown because it wasn't one exactly right. His left foot dragged out of balance and, and the ball was just short about the six inch line. So What a surprise. You have. Cam Newton just took it in again. Wouldn't surprise me at all. 67 career rushing touchdowns, most by any quarterback in NFL history has nine on the season. Second most Skylar Murray of Arizona So third down and goal from about Seven or eight inches. I formation. Newton under center. Harris is the deep back. This. He's going to try and jump. He is in touchdown. New England Well, New England. He only has one active tight head. I mean in this game, Ryan, is you so they just brought up Dalton King. That's right, so they got to but one that's played a lot. You have the extra offensive lineman. And there you go. Jumbo and Cam Newton just leaps at 65. The long body. The tall body. The long arms just jumped over reaches breaks the plane. Touchdown Patriots and that's a nifty seven minute plus drive to start this game and as we mentioned they were last in the league in first quarter points, scored. With only 21 all year. And they get the opening drive touchdown here. Extra point for Nick Fall. Is up, and it is good. So an impressive drive by the New England Patriots. 13 plays 75 yards.

I've been taken stuff in already. I took in AA. Early this week. A really nice 1970 taps baseball set that I sent in. He also had a group of world Siri's programs for about Mid sixties, the late seventies were kind of filled out or just I think a couple of them were, but mostly they weren't but that had some good ones a 67 Siri's was real good. It had the 69. That's when I'm 75 World Series was more valuable if it's filled out versus just a pristine brand new. Really, I think it is, Don't you think Bill, especially if there was something historic that happened during the game. Yeah, I think it's almost like a personal preference thing. Yeah, I like him build out. It was you kind of what happened that day? Yeah, And just the fact the guy was doing it at the lecture postcards from last week I talked about you know, maybe it feels authentic, and it really And when you see ah, 100 some year old postmark with the old writing and the ass, that's cool. I really do like that a lot. It's it's anything so anyone in his collection. He also had some fifties cards where That makes a nice little lot by itself. There were a few hall of Famers mixed in that great condition. But through Huggins and Scott, those air really good items to stand in for you collected a lot is a kid in the fifties. Didn't you early sixties, Not the 50. Sorry. I don't mean Agent too much Sorry about that way Did we opened packs and stuck him in a shoebox or, you know, we get once in a while. We got a cigar box where I don't know where we got. Nobody smokes cigars. I think like a candy store. They'd give us a security box. Once in a while like I'll give kids you know boxes once in a while, some of the cool boxes, But that's pretty much all we did with them and traded them and stuff. Sounds good. We save some of them so It was kind of cool. But speaking of old things that I like one of the things I noticed that was for sale. Already up at Huggins and Scott. Was a circa 1948 toy town. Babe Ruth's official baseball game. When I looked at it, it reminded me of Bob Baseball. Okay, Bob Baseball was a game that I had when I was a kid, and then I'm like, Wait a minute. You know, sometimes you have memories of a kid as a kid that you think Was there really such a thing? So I looked at line last night and I tweeted that I find I found Bob baseball by Ramco. Okay? And I tweeted a picture of it. One day. I was like, Wow. Need one. But I don't even know how much I actually paid their played that game. We played it some I remember finding We used to go to my grandma's house in the summer, and they would buy like our Christmas gifts like in the summer. You know what I mean? So I remember. I was up stairs in some second bedroom looking for something. And it was like July and I'm like you find cousin downstairs. I go Bob s. Oh, that's a really, really, I think more than anything, remember it that there had to have Bannerman And then when I found it and put the picture, it was like that's it nice grand parents He had there. Yeah, Yeah, That was fun. I'll tell you Then that's where we used to. We would always when we'd stay there in the summer, we'd go. They had a candy store, and they had this little grocery store that we always got baseball cards. That now was that Naperville Aereo's in Aurora, OK, Yeah, so we would walk to one of those places and you know, we have Oh, boy, we got a Nicolay atone and get a pound of times have changed. I play baseball Dalein. Yeah. So that's the way it wass. All right now, let's see here. What else are we going to talk about? It was also in AA. This was kind of need. I can't wait to see the picture of this one bill. The pictures not up yet. It's a 1953 54. Briggs meets Hank Bauer panel, It says with Hot Dog border so I make. I haven't never seen that that type of card and it's got away with a hot dog border that is that, like a short print with the hot dogs will, er well, that's actually the way the back of the panel came. And If I'm not mistaken, you know the the They came to on a panel on the back of a Ah ha! And it was the two players and then hot dogs around them.

C. A.

"In particular. And my next guest is a man that any baseball fan. Does know his name is Bob Klapisch, and he has written a number of books actually five of them. And the latest one is called inside the empire and Bob Klapisch. Welcome to money matters. All thank you for having me on. It's a pleasure. It is mine and before we came on the air. I indicated to you that I grew up in the shadows of Yankee Stadium. And I remember Bob as a little kid standing out in the right outside the parking lot where the players would walk towards when they came out of the stadium after showering sometimes, and we little kids would had the postcard. It was a nickel postcard or penny postcard at the time. And it was self addressed. And we'd handed to Whitey Ford or Mickey Mantle or Hank Bauer. I'm dating myself, but within three days or so. So we would get the signed other side of the postcard sent to us that was not a business back. Then now baseball is a huge business. Yankees are a huge business and your book inside the empire. Truly describes it. It is totally different from when I was a little kid. Is it not oh, it has been a business for a very long time. I think you would definitely dated yourself with that. It's big big business. And the question really is how how has the business modernized in the last say ten years or so the Yankees were one of the last one to come into the to the late two thousands with this for for the longest time George Steinbrenner what his business plan was to chase free agents throw as much money at them as possible often players who right thirty eight thirty or early thirties and deal with the back end of their careers later. It was not a very efficient way to run a baseball team. And I think all along Brian Cashman, the general manager was waiting for his chance to modernize the keys and bring them up to up to speed with the rest of the industry, and it's up to things for him to finally, prevail. One George had to pass away and two it had to be coming upon the other Steinbrenner family members, the Steinbrenner family into ownership in general that there was it was an enormous waste of money. The yankees. Is the only didn't make the playoffs. Three years in two thousand fourteen fifteen and sixteen something had to change and and the rest of the industry had already changed headed start investing in younger players developing talent from from the ground up instead of chasing guys in their thirties and throwing millions and billions and billions of dollars down the toilet George Steinbrenner breaking money in the earlier years following that pattern. I'm sorry. I was George Steinbrenner making money at that time and not from the shipping business. But from the Yankee business during that period of time when he was revolutionizing the industry. Well, yes, he was. But he, you know, he was also a visionary in the sense that that he realized that you couldn't just make money or enough money just selling hot dogs and tickets to the games you had to find another revenue stream, and he was the first one to come up with the idea of a regional sports network. He came up with with. Yes. Network in two thousand one long before anybody else had thought of it. And he's. Thought about other ways of bringing money and into the franchise that way now yes is worth four four billion dollars, and George was the first one to do it. But again that money was going right out the door with the fact that the Yankees were were not winning, and they would lose their, you know, to him winning was as important as making money if not more so and the results just weren't there. It's a Brian Cashman to come up to speed on. How how baseball's run today that I'm talking about player development analytics scouting everything that now the are now at the leaders of industry, and they've completely changed. I don't think George would recognize that the franchise is run today. So Bob fans, enjoying it more than they used to because of all the analytics, and obviously the new changes this year to speed up the game a little, but it became a bit of a drag. When compared though the sports what would George Steinbrenner said in terms of the way, the baseball teams will being run on behalf of the fans putting the business. Part. There's a degree in which you cannot tweak the game. I mean, you can you can shorten the time between innings and you can limit the number of time a manager to the mound or how many pitching changes it can make with the bullpen. But baseball is baseball. I mean, it's never going to be with a two hour running clock and twenty minute half time, and you know, you're in and out of the stadium in two hours. I mean, there's a beauty to that sport, you know, continuity that makes it very attractive. Baseball will forever be in a chess game. And there's nothing you can do about a game that goes on for three hours. No matter how much you tweak it, but I think George understood that it is a fans game, and you have to constantly evolve. And do what you can't make it more tractive. He very much wanted the game to be attractive appealing to fans, which is why believe it or not he wanted to move out of the state. He wanted to he wanted to get the Yankees out of the Bronx of the west side of Manhattan desperately. He wanted an upgraded venue. He wanted something glamorous than rickety stadium in the Bronx. And it's a Randy LeVine team president to convince them you cannot take the Enke's out of the Bronx. He will be forever hated for doing this. It will destroy your legacy forever. And I think that got through to George so intern Steinbrenner says to Randy LeVine in early two thousand you want me to stay get me a new stadium and Randy was the brains behind the new stadium which opened in two thousand nine and now the neighborhood around Yankee Stadium river avenue is completely upgraded. They've got obviously a beautiful structure. They've got upgraded subway and train station there, and it's entirely safe fan friendly. And that's because the Randy LeVine, isn't that wonderful. And when I see contracts like my trout's contract, and obviously Bryce Harper's what would George Steinbrenner have felt about throwing that kind of money because he was the person who started throwing big money. Could he have envision this kind of money, you know, thirty eight million a year for. For thirteen years. It's incredible fifty eight million a year for thirteen years. Could he have envisioned doing? That's a great question because you know, that the Yankees try so hard Brian Cashman, try so hard to wean him away from the idea of big contracts. But I think George could have been convinced that the way to save money. Ultimately was invested in these young stars as they become ready for free agency and the threat looms that they might just leave since. Now if I'm wearing. It sounds like an enormous amount of money from Mike trout and for Bryce Harper. But ultimately teams we'll be saving money by not having to expose these players to free agency. So now Aaron judge's agent unfolding at the mouth, and my not heck. Yeah. Brian Cashman his door with with an open checkbook a sign right here with an open case. I don't mean to I would open suitcases to take the cash. I don't mean to leave. Yeah. That's amazing. Exactly what you mean. I mean, it's the perfect time for Aaron judge. It's the right place right time. And the circumstances industry are completely in his favorite right now. And you know, I'd like to be in his shoes at this moment in nineteen Ninety-three. You wrote a book that I also read the worst team money could buy about the nineteen Ninety-three Mets have they taken the right strides in your estimate. Bob Klapisch to improve their team or they still never going to achieve the the success of the Yankees. Look the National League is significantly weaker than the American League. So there's always a chance that the Mets could have a breakthrough season. But you know, there's their challenges there that don't stay first and foremost. The Yankees have so much more money. I mean, they generate more money. They're worth more money. The Mets are worth about one point two billion Handke's award three times. And I just don't know if the Mets can can throw the same kind of resources at a problem the way the Yankees can completely remade themselves and turn to their infrastructure as I mentioned before the player development the academies. They have in Latin America, the sabermetrics have more scouts. They have more quantum? They have more of everything than anyone, and they still have. They're their leaders across the board. Just don't have that. But like I said the advantage. They have is as much smaller talent pool in the nationally. And the Mets aren't that far away from breaking through just because the competition is that much weaker George Steinbrenner would tell him to get haircuts shave. Wouldn't he? Probably for the money. The Mets have obviously fewer resources available to throw at a problem. But the the advantage they do have as opposed to the Yankees in the American League is the talent pool of nationally so much weaker. And there isn't that much stands between the medicine and breaking through becoming a real legitimate playoff team when you look at some of these younger players, and I'm talking like last year, Luke foyer to all of a sudden popped up from mediocrity to really a good ball player. This is part of the whole system that the Yankees have put in place. They've had a history of coming up with very good players that. Nope. Nick swisher. There's another example that I'm thinking about so these guys came up they were successful. And they went to the bottom line. Ultimately in in terms Bob of Amazon perhaps getting involved in the network. Do you have an opinion on that? Did leave them selves a clause? They lift the left themselves in opening when they sold. Yes. To FOX into to Murdoch that they would have the chance to buy back, which they just did. So I think they they understand the value of having their own the control of their own network. I mean, they paid dearly for it. But the the network is such an important resource to them. And I just did not see it going to third party. So I think it's a great move for them. And I and again that was Randi Levine's, baby. Mean he's the one who foresaw the David when the they'd have a chance to bring it back in house, and he just pulled off a very successful deal. So ladies and gentlemen, the book inside the empire the true power behind the New York Yankees. And I'm a Yankee fan from the time. I grew up in the Bronx Bob until now. And I encourage people to pick up the book, it's a wonderful read. And it's a pleasure having you on money matters. Well, thank you for having me on. It was my pleasure. Thank you. Thank you very much. So as a young boy, you heard the anecdote of me standing outside of Yankee Stadium with my other eight nine year old buddies standing by the parking lot near the exit of yank. Stadium. And yes, we did give these penny postcards to the great all stars that eventually went to the hall of fame, and they took it upon themselves to return them sign them, and it would be best wishes Hank Bauer best wishes Mickey Mantle, and I have.

"Talking baseball on the fan. Welcome back. Everybody to weigh it Randall's talking baseball, so happy to have you with me. It was one note that I did not mention last week because time did not permit with regard to Mel Stottlemyre in gotten so much reaction to mill juniors appearance on the show last week. We mentioned that mill did something that will probably never see again in inside the park grand slam. They took away. The ability of American League pitchers to hit a starting in nineteen seventy three with the imposition of God. Help us the designated hitter personal opinion, of course, loyal listeners know, I just have never bought into it. And I understand we're were moving down the road here to a universal designated hitter. Stottlemyre facing Bill Mambu kit. The Boston Red Sox hits a ball into the cavernous centerfield in Yankee Stadium and deludes the center fielder in there running it down in the bases loaded. Donald Myers huffing and puffing going around the basis on July. Twentieth. Nineteen sixty five and winds up with a grand slam home run. Well, this one other thing that he did he did which we probably won't see again from from a pitcher. On the year before when he came up on September twenty six thousand nine hundred sixty four he had come up just before. Then he shut out the Washington senators in Washington seven to nothing anyone five for five five for five for a pitcher. And there's a pitcher in the Cincinnati organization right bail who could wind up also playing in the outfield because he is such a good hitter. But Stottlemyre within an inside the park grand slam against the Boston Red Sox and prior to which preceded by the five for five game against the Washington. Senators things that we probably will never see again. The New York professional baseball hot stove league is in organization regional baseball scouts. They have been hosting a dinner for fifty four years, and I have been the master of ceremonies four fifty four kidding. But I I've been doing it for a long for a long time. And it's a wonderful organization, and I love being with these guys. These these people who are scouts are the heart and soul of the game and baseball, and we should not hope the analytics people will respect their their legacy all that they have done for the game of baseball and not diminish their influence. There's still nothing like watching watching the players the young players in deciding if their prospects are not trying to gauge the heart trying to gauge the mind, and it was through this organization that I met a wonderful man named Tom Giordano who this past week passed away at the age of ninety three Tom was known as T-Bone growing up in in Newark, New Jersey and his father worked in a grocery store, and he believed that Tom should focus on. His schoolwork and devote any free time to working in the family business and Tom made the high school baseball team in Newark, New Jersey, and he filled to his parents about the reason he was coming home late from school in. He said I Tom said I used to hide my spikes and a quote now from the Associated Press. Well, my dad got a hold of them put them on the butcherblock. He cut them up. He cut up everything my back my glove. Everything eventually, though, Tom's dead came around to the idea of playing baseball and had a pre game ritual that gave his son the nickname T-Bone one day. Tom hit a couple of home runs and the dead made him a T bone steak, and that's where it all started. And he became known as T-Bone well at this gathering of scouts dinners. I would take the liberty of intra we would introduce all the scouts in the room. And then. Then I would take special pleasure in giving him being given T-Bone the business. Because of his age I would say things like he has a copy of the bible signed by the author. He cheated off of Lincoln in school. He began his baseball career right after he came back from the war with the union army that I wanted to get him a copy of the newspaper from the day. He was born unfortunately newspapers, invented by the time he was born. He he attended Christie Mathewson's bachelor party, you get the idea, and it was a good natured fund any always took it in the spirit in which it was meant. And he would he would be at every I would see him all the time in the back row in the exhilaration on the exhilarating press box side of the Yankee press box where I reside during the season. And he would he would walk in and. With his his dear friend, Billy Kepala who would drive him to and from the ballpark and give me a hug. Gimme a real handshake, and we would embrace. I just loved him in every sentence many sentences and ended with the word damn it. Damn it. And that's how he was. He was an incredible person. He started as a player in nineteen forty eight in the athletic system, then the Philadelphia athletics system and. He had a spacious debut. Coming to the major leagues at Connie Mack stadium in Philadelphia and facing Virgil trucks. Tremendous pitcher who had made his bones with the Detroit Tigers pitching for the Chicago White Sox and in his second career at bat T-Bone hits a home run in September of that year. He only hit one seventy five with two homers and five RBI's during eleven games and never came back to play in the major leagues. He was in the south Atlantic league the Sally league. And he there led the league in home runs with twenty four. And the Braves had a guy named Hank. Aaron who finished to behind him with twenty two. And after the playing career was over T-Bone became a scout. And later a manager in the minor leagues. And he began his historic. This guy spent seventy one years in the game. This career began to transition off the field, and he began his role influential role in scouting legendary role with the Kansas City as in nineteen sixty. And that was before Finley bought the ball club and burned the bus as a symbol that the as were no longer going to be the Yankees farm club that they were no longer going to make these ridiculous one sided trades of prospects or good young players to New York, which went on all the time with Ralph Terry and Roger marris for Hank Bauer. Bauer was great. But he was done by the time. He got to Kansas City Jordana went to work for Arnold Johnson sold the team, Charlie Finley, and any stayed with the as and Giordano dano became a very influential figure in that decade of the sixties as the as in Finley started to build a dynasty, and it was bandeau and catfish and Reggie Jackson and Rick Monday and down the line and came and from there he went onto the. Baltimore Orioles serving as a scouting, director of player development and assistant general manager with the Orioles. He drafted Cal Ripken junior. And then from there it was on the Cleveland Indians where he drafted Manny Ramirez and. He was in crew incredible force in the front office of the game baseball. And then from there unto the Texas Rangers his meant he is. He was a mentor to John Hart who would become the general manager of the Cleveland Indians and heart him had him in Cleveland in the past few years than heart moves on to the heart had gone onto the Texas Rangers. And then from there to the Atlanta Braves and each stop. He takes a G t takes T-Bone with him. How many people at the age of ninety get a new job? And that's what I did three years ago. When Hart took him to the to the Atlanta Braves, he was so kind and so generous to me. There are few people. I had the great good fortune to be around the game for as long as I have to have the privilege of having this radio show to talk about something that courses through my bones. You can people tell me they feel my passion about the game. And I'm so grateful to have this opportunity to come on the air with you and talk about it. And I've had the great good fortune to know Silmi fantastic. People in the game of baseball in. Tom jeered dano is at the top of the list. I have been blessed to have had him in my life. He was just incredible. And he knew so much baseball to just sit with him to see him even in this advanced age be able to detect a pitchers motion or the release point of a pitcher or the swing of a of a batter to learn. So to just shut up around the guy and. Just a to learn to learn from him. He also was. So passionate about the game of baseball. He he said he said he just wanted to get up in the morning. He couldn't wait to get up in the morning and go to the ballpark. And he said, you know, I wanna do this until the day I die and God was good to him. And let him do that. He had developed a blood infection in December. He had moved down to Florida from Long Island in Amityville in. I would call them all the time. And we would we would speak, and he he said get Nadal hospital next week. This was around Christmas. And then the. The infection reappeared there were complications. And eventually because of his age the doctor said there's really nothing here. We can do in the family made the decision against further treatment. So they took him home for his for his remaining days. I can't talk any more from my heart about about Tom or dano, and what he meant to me, and his kindness and how he left me give him the business. He called everybody sun, high sun, high you do and I was honored. Did he even knew me never mind that he would call me up just to talk baseball. And in that head of his he forgot more baseball. Than I will ever than I will ever know. And he allowed me to make him the butt of my stupid jokes that I would write about him at the scouts dinner. He I was just blessed as I said to know, Tom Giordano, the baseball world is going to miss him terribly. He was such an asset to the game. And I am I am blessed to know him and feel a sadness in my heart because of his passing we take your phone calls on the toll free at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six after Chris's update..

"There in Green Bay. Remember that what I'd be interested. What I'd be interested to see what the wind chill was. Well, because that is interesting because the Bengals in the charges when they met back in the eighties. The the riverfront stadium. Oh, gosh. Where's that three fifty five below that cold? Yes. Yes. Really really cold at one of the Cincinnati stations put that because I guess we just hit one of the anniversaries of that. We did it was it was called the freezer bowl. And you're exactly right. It was January tenth nineteen eighty two. Your temperature was nine degrees below but the wind chill made it feel like thirty seven below. That's interesting because the story I've got is the NFL history. Is the sixty seven game minus thirteen degrees, which would make the coldest by raw air temperature. Oh, I got a win win because the wind was blowing at twenty seven miles an hour for that game against the charges and the Bengals gosh, that's the wind chill thirty negative thirty seven Fahrenheit the thing to think about here with aero had stadium. If you haven't seen it the thing the playing surface is above or at ground level, basically. Right. But it's so enclosed that really the only people who are going to feel the true brunt of that wind are going to be in the upper deck. Here's the other question now fellas and that is a friend of mine who played the NFL who's a Potter talked about going to Green Bay hated playing up there. When one of us cold because he says, the balls like Iraq. So now, you gotta have Mahomes who's one of the best passers, you know, this year. I mean, obviously Brady is an accurate passer in these home bullets wind up in cold hands or or or Iraq being thrown. You wonder who's gonna? The the run game may be the most important thing. And I don't know who has the advantage. Twenty two teams. See the other interesting tidbit is that the this officiating crew has the referee that uncovered deflate gate. The non relation inflation. So in a caveat to that game. Apparently, they were using an outdated wind chill temperature, apparently, which is not dated. It's onto the old one. They listed the efficient use the old one the wind chill was fifty nine below and Hank Bauer who played for the chargers said when they came out in the field 'cause they played in eighty four degree weather the week before right said, quote, when.
