I believe I've got you as is a don't pay the players in college guy. How strongly do you feel that before? We get to your very strongly Smith. Take which you were doing long after the hard network out and you were chasing everybody around here telling them how eight outraged you are the lease myth votes so first before we get to anything else finished your Lee Smith Point and get to all of the outrage well Lee Smith. You could make a better argument for them. Harold Baines nothing against gets Harold Baines personally. I've never met he had a nice career but the voters you need seventy five percent to get into the hall of fame. The most percent that Harold Baines ever got in any one year was six percent the the bare minimum to stay on the ballot is five percents so here's a guy who barely stayed on the ballot didn't come close how they want their organization representative. Eli Manning is the embodiment off that a prankster interlock role. That Paul went from angry what happened well look. I do that just to bother cody. No no no no. He was in moves quickly.

Got your back when it comes to the safety and industrial supplies that help keep your facility running get what you need when you need it at Grainger dot com. We'll get to my Email argument with Tony LaRussa in a second. But I can you please play the sound of Robert Kraft while wearing a chain. I believe that it's meek mill's chain promoting meek mill's new album. How many parents did your necklace? Oh. Well, this is a gift for meat mail. When we won the Super Bowl be performed out. The after party took this. He's dream chases his new album champions. So he thought we should have it. Guillermo, put it on the poll at lebatardshow, Twitter and Instagram what's stranger that Robert Kraft is out here. Getting meek mill out of jail and promoting his album or that Putin is alleged to have stole stolen one of Robert Kraft Super Bowl. Rick. I mean, the tough question. Yes. Interviewer that is. Yes, it is. Al Horford is gonna join us in about ten minutes to talk about how crazy Kyrie Irving is. We'll see how that goes. I don't think that's what he's promoted. He's not promoting the craziness of Kyrie Irving. Oh, I think he's promoting chocolate milk, which is something we can all get behind. Oh, yeah. So here's the discussion. Have you guys gotten the sound cleared of Chris Russo and Tony LaRussa getting into a heated argument about Harold Baines for the hall of fame because so we had on we do any number of strange things around here yesterday. We went to Super Bowl observations from Pete Rose, Tony LaRussa and Jean decker Hof Murray. Tommy lasorda. Murray was a bit of a calamity that didn't seem like it was Murray at all. But dick, Cody, the brother the brother of Greg Cody was great. Should I reveal who really was Murray yesterday? Or should I keep that Donal already revealed Sodano helped us out? He knows radio. He knew that I picked up the wrong pot and he helped us out. But that in the club. Was there was he did not hit worry a lot going on. There were a lot of plates. Many. And you may have noticed that Mike Ryan earlier today played off of it was supposed to be happy birthday, which is pretty simple. Instead, he he played Trey wingo. Yelling at some guy named Jerry, Jerry. We'll tell them. So Tony LaRussa gonna kill me, man. Tony LaRussa is. So he was on with us, and he loves Bella check. And he loves the coaching disciplined. Ballot. Check. And he believes that Harold Baines should be in the hall of fame. Greg Cody hall of fame voter is all mad that Tony LaRussa is bypassed his authority by putting Harold Harold Baines in the hall of fame because Greg Cody wanted to give a vote to one Pierre j. So LaRussa sent you an Email like in defensive herald Bain Email longer than dangerous career. He was here on with us for about. I don't know sixty seconds. And at the end of it. I lobbed a grenade potshot at him without even letting him to respond letting them respond saying Harold Baines does not belong in the hall of fame. So he is still making the argument for him. And the argument we're having is about measurements in baseball. And analytics because LaRussa doesn't believe in war and value above replacement player. He believes in game winning RBI he believes in hits and he believes to be fair to him in a mixture of the two and he's right about that that it should be a mixture it shouldn't be the Solis analytics Harold Baines had a lot of big hits. But the analytics in baseball now can measure individually. That you need people to be on base in order to have game winning hits unless you're hitting home runs. And that's not something that you can control Harold Baines had a lot of game when he hits because he played forty bleeping year. Right. He actually twenty one years. I mean, he had three hundred and eighty four home. He's just not a hall of Famer I understand that Tony LaRussa. And this is really what it gets down to he managed them any likes, Harold Baines. No, wait a minute. That's that's where Tony LaRussa doesn't like it that that is where the way it comes off whether he likes that or not. That's the way. I know how it is. You would recognize, Dan. If you read the stories, he's not loud. There are some guys that perhaps are hall of famers are had better careers that Harold Baines. And he's not sitting there pushing on them like pushing pushing Harold MacKay. But he also has more information than we do about who Harold Baines was and the difficulties of navigating that world, look, I'm not sitting here making the argument on behalf of Harold Baines. I'm simply telling you that the writers I lost my hall of fame vote because I don't believe writers like, Greg Cody should be the gatekeepers on forgetting so fired up about this. Darrell Bain Rhys. He's on he's on the Cosby's borderline. It's a good argument to have it makes Harold Baines more relevant. Why wouldn't I wanna give them more people fountain of youth after they've retired to relive the best years of their lives? I leave that guy. Stumbling through excellence. It's time for some straight talk. I'm ready for it. You want the best coverage, right? Of course, want the QB throwing any palms. I'm talking about coverage on your smartphone lingo, I get you. Now, I want.

"No, that's kind of self interested in. That's all championship is for your favorite team. Is you're rooting for your team to be really happy because they're the last to win a game. But for whatever sent people get really really patented argumentative about the hall of fame. This is it's not first of all there's no decision had been made one decision has been made. But like if somebody is out there saying like, oh, I don't think Mike seen as a hall of Famer. It's not over just because Mike is in the hall of fame. People are not gonna have their minds change, the people who are I don't know Messina troopers, or whatever you wanna call them. They're gonna say no, he's not good enough. He doesn't belong there. This denigrates the hall of fame, and by the way, it doesn't do it anymore than Harold Baines. Does it a lot less than Harold Baines it, but in any case, it's no one the voting results don't determine this guy had a good career or he had a bad career? We're looking at players who were like three standard deviations above the mean. And we're. Okay. Either. Mike Mussina had a very very good career or he had a very very very good career. And enough writers have decided that he gets that third extra very and therefore like against to go in this special room in the hall of fame. And so I don't know. I don't know how I'm supposed to feel. Maybe I'm just really jaded. But like even when I was the bigger like baseball fan more emotional baseball fan. I just never never clicked with me. And I don't wanna take anything away from people who think that through find this to be really emotional moment. Really powerful moment. I know that marriage fans all over the place just overjoyed that egging Martinez finally gotten into the hall of fame, which he deserves more players deserve to beat the hall of fame. And that's great. I feel slightly happy that people who deserve to be in the hall of fame are going to hall of fame. But there's just been so many things that have cheapened the experienced me and even foundationally, I don't know. It's just seems kinda strange that such a big deal is made out of the opinion of a bunch of baseball writers, many who. Tone even write about baseball anymore. Right. I mean, it is sort of silly like Mike Messina, I think is a clear and obvious hall of..

"Dude. Who had a just an unbelievable ability to close out games. And when you take a look at his numbers, and you are appreciated what he meant all. Those great Yankee teams, and what it means to the fan base. And what he means to the ownership and the pinstripes there could be a guy that wore this uniform any more classy than he did came up in big spots and just basically set the tone for what every closer should be. And I actually, you know, this whole thing about getting in unanimously or getting on your first ballot versus your tenth ballot. At the end of the day. This was a lock this is a no brainer. Peyton Manning goes in lock no brainer. When Tom Brady goes in lock no brainer. Drew Brees goes in lock no brainer. I mean, you know, players LeBron James locked O'Brien. Kobe Bryant locked on break. You know, the players that are at that level. And as a former athlete I'm a met fan. You know, I'm not a Yankee fan. I can appreciate the greatness of Marianna Rivera. It's this. It's the is the greatness of Tom Seaver, Ken Griffey junior. You know, who they are? And they deserve to be honored the way. I think rightfully so that Marianna was honored unanimously. I can't even imagine that there would be a dopey writer out there. So I thought that was gonna be magic. When you think about what he has done in how many big I mean, just endless big spots that he has gone in and done his thing. It's just it's it stands alone. It stands on its own. So I'm happy for him. I'm I'm happy for his family. I'm happy for the organization that he says is the best organization in all of sports that would be hard to argue hard to argue that it isn't whether you like them or not you have to typically up to one of the greatest players of all time and the greatest player at his particular position on what he did. Yeah. As far as feeling great for him absolutely on board with that. I thought that the lasting moment. Or the thing that I took away from last night was the shot of him in his home with his family, watch them this. And then seeing him celebrate. When he found out that it was unanimous and happy he was because he earned it, the the feelings that I have the negative feelings that I have towards the hall of fame is the process the baseball writers that play God, the people that freak out about it the tearing down of certain players like Harold Baines because the bunch of baseball fans don't. I think that he deserves any sort of like that's the stuff that bothers me. And I it's gotten worse when it comes to Twitter, and that reaction, it's just it's it's so over the top it's ridiculous. These are great achievements for these guys. What it does it brings back memories for the fans of the great times a day had. I mean, I was bungee Yankee fans yesterday. Not that they forgot about Marianna Rivera. But last night today, you look at the papers. I mean, there's big Marianna spreads everywhere. It's just a day. You get to relive such a great era of baseball as a fan for great guy too. By the way. I think is loved by everybody loved by everybody. You know, you can say whatever you want. There'll be a day that most likely Curt Schilling we'll go in, but because of his political leanings OB people that hate him or maybe they're not even voting for him because of his political leanings, which is asinine at the end of the day. It should be about big spots. Pulling you know, pulling your weight doing your job and being the difference maker one year on the mound. And certainly that was Marianne owes a case. And I I don't know. It's just like what you really admire somebody in respect somebody and then they get the crowning achievement of getting into the hall of fame. And then on top of that, it is unanimous. It just makes it all the more. I think fulfilling for all of us that are baseball fans in that. Appreciate greatness. That's all that's all. I'm saying. And that's where I'm coming. From is a former athlete. I here's a guy that was supposed to be wanted to be a starter. He was told he was going to be a closer and that and that decision right there. Let him all the way to Cooperstown. So congratulations for him one of the all time. I don't know. Great guys in the sport. Who I don't know? I think everybody really admires. So that's good. That's right. Oh, absolutely. It is the crap and all all the crabs. All the anger and the angst empty and the sniping at one another and everything. Awesome. But you're playing exactly into my point. Which is exactly so. Yeah. That's what it should be about the guys who got in celebrate their careers, whether you agree or disagree. They should be in the hall of fame. It's really about these guys in their achievements. Really what it's about. And it doesn't matter how the. What what's the discussion going to beat today on most sports shows is it going to be about looking back in honoring Marianna or baron feeling. Good for him. Now. It's going to be about the steroid guys in the percentages that they had seen as very good. Not great and. Shop. God it's on a loser. Why does it bother you? Because I'll tell you enjoy should celebrate the guy that you want to sell. And let it happen. But also, I don't think there's enough of a voice out there for the other side. I really don't think there's other people who agree with this and are at least reasonable when it comes to this. But then it gets bogged down by these ridiculous arguments over this stuff. I mean, the Harold Baines you would've thought good for Harrow pain. But that's what I'm saying. But you would have thought when he got in that like he was a murderer the people the way people were treating like we only have like twelve years live on this earth. It would be the last guy you think about putting into the. You know at the end of the day. I just look at it as a real great achievement for no matter how they get in. They get in. And I know that, you know, my previous party used to say, well if you're not in on the first ballot. Are you really? Does it matter to me now? But it is a, but it is it will be great for these guys and their families, and they're gonna have their day up in Cooperstown. I'm sure the Yankees will do the right thing by both Messina, and and and Marianne they'll probably have separate days for each one of them. And that's great. And so the Bank can go to those games. And celebrate those players in the history and the success that they had with their team. And I'm sure the Orioles would do the same thing for Messina will say about this this room up in Cooperstown. New York this museum or a hall of fame. Yeah. The only I think that they get wrong. And I guess this goes way back when to win this thing I opened that you would put a player in there with the hat that he wore the most was a lot of players just to stay with their teams a lot longer than they do nowadays. That's why I love what the pro football hall of fame. Does. It's just the bust. You know, it doesn't matter. What team you played for you? There's real no identification other than the plaque that you may receive an and tells you where you played and all that other stuff, but there's your Boston there and his John, you know, those bust actually talk at night with each other real conversation. I would put regular hats on. I'm like one guy gets the pork pie hat one guy gets the Dora whatever they like to wear regular time. You just you know, maybe. Bus. That's the thing you like a bus, and then the policy of the hall of fame guys talking to Bob Dwyer this morning before the show about so right? You're all up coming in here. Talking sports on the show. I liked that. Bob's right. Because he's with me on this stuff. It's ridiculous. You know, you get these writers at vote for bonds and Clemens for MVP's and Cy youngs. And somehow they had no idea they were doing steroids. Baseball who capitalized off these guys nineteen ninety eight they desperately needed something after ninety four and the strike and nobody wanted to go to baseball games anymore. They climb on the acne backs of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa and ride then back into relevancy again. But now all of a sudden all these guys are pariahs up yours. Gimme a break. That is a law. That's a part of baseball. He's three everybody knows it. Now, we're going to keep them out of the sacred hall of fame. Right. Gimme a break. I mean, those guys did more for baseball or more interesting than half the people that are sitting here with a capita plaque. We keep them out. We go to set a standard here because these guys are criminals they cheated the game. God, it's just so frustrating. And by the way, the Mets announced their bobblehead nights yesterday. Jackie's going into the hall of fame bobblehead. You want to hear that do we have the can we allowed to play the Mets music again? Like, the why not we have the rights to the Mets. Yeah. Right. That's what I'm saying. Right. I've got the so I got this Email yesterday very very excited about the Mets bobblehead giveaways city field.

"Mazar each moving up a couple of points to fifty nine percent. And is it worse and worse for bonds and Clemens are better. Only two years left on the ballot. Is that it was longer than that? I thought it was four years left. They got. They have two or three. There was a seventh year. So I think they get ten so they get three more got one more than them. Okay. So here's my question. He said he coming in that he didn't think the first reaction was that Messina shouldn't be an and I thought he should be in without a doubt. And I thought I had a problem. I loved Edgar Martinez out. Yeah. I'm half and half on Edgar Martinez. I get it. And I wouldn't have had a problem. If he wasn't in you see the problem now is and we talked about this in December. I respect that. He's in. I wouldn't have the dopey the dopey panel that put Baynes and Lee Smith in the hall of fame. They've now opened the door. It doesn't any pretty much anybody who gets in. Now, you have a problem with because if you put those two stooges in pretty much everybody is right. So now, I if if if Harold Baines is in an Edgar Martinez has so Baynes. And and who was it. Lee Smith, and they get in with these guys will be in the same class talk about the teeter totter. You got the heavies over here. And then he got the disaster on that side, right? The buzzer Super Bowl victory begins to bells teams will practice and working on this week before heading to Atlanta this weekend. We'll talk to Jimmy bride about Davos, the glove, the chiefs fired Bob side, and I told you that would happen. I think I started my Westwood One podcast with that guy should be fired. Yeah. But how about the name that's being talked about to Ryan? Let's slow down is that really what's going to happen? I think that he's getting the itch probably TV for a couple of years. He's ready to get back in the mix. Oh, congratulations. Here's the deal. And then what? And then what they're gonna start saying that she should have to go to the Super Bowl. Let me tell you something. It doesn't matter who their defensive coordinator is because I'll give you that. It's important. But it's the players. They have bad players. Let's face it on D bands. That don't get it done. That defense was butter. That's why they lost their defense. Couldn't stop Brady. No one can. But they really good on three third down intense. They let it happen. It just was all day that Brady and the pats did whatever they wanted Iran to pass the ball to slanted. They went verte whenever the metal. They did slay. Everything's screens draws. I mean every Denmark because that she'd Steve and socks and that's why they're not in the Super Bowl. Don't blame. Anything literally the rats all they gave the patriots every single call. But your socks the minute. I got the ball in overtime. I knew the game was a lineup offsides. It's not his fault. It's not as well. But that defense sought so it is his fault. They're not gonna fire to Blair's. They'll get rid of players, and they fired him. And I don't think. Our right. I think Ryan might be at the better defensive coordinator than Bob Sutton. I'll give you that. Promise is that. Guys, while these other guys are free agents, they got up. So now, you're pretty much bomb in the barrel. Picks at this point. And he's always been a good defensive coordinator. What he was a little out of control is a head coach. We know that we're Rex just focused on defense before he was the jet head coach. He was a good defensive coordinator. Yeah. I'll give you that.

But I'll tell you what it's just always fun to see the rumors, and how about this one, Lance Lynn. Gets three year thirty million dollar contract. I must be getting old here, but the amount of money that teams throw around on mediocre players is stunning yesterday. We talked about Andrew mccutchen whose past his prime getting fifteen million dollars a year. Now, you're talking about Lance Lynn getting ten million dollars a year. Now, it's a step back from the twelve million you made last year, but still he's not crying poverty making ten million dollars a year as an average pitcher coming off a season with a four point seven seventy IRA. Lance Lind's were ten million dollars. You can't be serious. Producer Shawn Watson Makia. Lance Lynn's a ten million dollar player in today. You're getting from the Yankees this year. Eight and a half is it. So then yeah is worth ten million dollars. Yeah. Is he worth more than of course, a bath is thirty eight and going on thirty nine these finished. But still had a better here than Lance Lynn. Right better longer. That's true. That's true. I wouldn't give in ten million a year if that's the case. So here's what I don't understand yet. What's the market going to be like for the closers like these relievers? Right. What's the market gonna be like for them? I think the market has gotten bigger and bigger for relief pitchers. And I just think that honestly like when you're the Andrew Miller's of the out of venos- or the kimbrough's or the David Robertson's Zach Britain's of the world, what's the money to be like for those guys because are they more valuable than a Lance Lynn in today's baseball. Right. Yeah. Right. I mean, are they more valuable? They are right. Well, let's in is reliever. Well, don't forget that. Well, but he's more starter. Right. He can do both. He could eat. Yeah. But I think they're bringing them in to be a starter. I would think. I think that's why you're gonna pay Lance Lynn ten million bucks. It's not my money though. That's the funny thing it's not my money. But it's just always like unfathomable to me when I look at the amount of money. Some of these players end up getting it just really incredible. I don't think we'd have the law jam like we had last year. You remember Lance Lynn didn't sign too late. He was one of those guys that was taking part of that crazy camp in Bradenton Florida the free agent training camp. Remember the spring training for the the free agent players. So he at least has signed early it. Seems that look I think what's interesting is when you talk about Manny Machado, and you talk about a Bryce Harper. You could eliminate ninety five percent of the teams in baseball from being involved in that. Right. I you know, that there's going to be ninety ninety five percent teams that are not gonna get involved. And those guys are already shopping in that bargain-basement been they're the ones that look at a Lance Lynn and say, hey, maybe there's good value there. That's the market for those guys. So I think the question's going to be for the big market teams. That may be interested in a Bryce Harper. Manny Machado when are they going to put some pressure on? The Scott Boris is the world saying, look, we gotta get something done here. Because in the meantime, other guys are signing elsewhere, right? If you're looking for an outfielder and Bryce Harper's who you've looked at and you end up not getting Bryce Harper who's going to be. Left on the market in two or three weeks, depending on when he's going to decide to sign at some point. You say, okay, we got a pivot away because we haven't gotten any word. Do we sign the Andrew McCarthy since the Phillies, frankly, did they make a statement by signing mccutchen? Which is. Yeah, we'll go and get ourselves the infielder Machado. But maybe we're not going to go after Bryce Harper. Like a lot of people say we are. Or are we going to now go out and spend another ridiculous amount of money and get Bryce Harper. We've brought in two new outfielders into the mix with Andrew mccutchen. And Bryce Harper. That's the interesting thing to me when you look at what's happening because I think teams don't wanna be used against each other. Right. Nobody wants to be put into a bidding war, and that's exactly where Scott Boras makes his money. He wants a bidding war for Bryce Harper. He wants a bidding war first clients. And the fact is a bidding war, though takes time. And if you have a bidding war teams going to get involved, and because the money is going to be so incredibly large. Then if you're willing to go thirty to thirty five million dollars a year on Bryce Harper, and you don't end up getting him. And then you have to pivot quickly away the warriors what's still left on the market by the time. I'm eliminated from the Harper competition or what's going to be left. If I'm looking for a shortstop slash third baseman wants Manny Machado signs, and I'm left holding the bag and the other names out. There are Freddie Galvez, and I'll Sita's Escobar and a Denny hetch of Iria guys who can't hit a lick. So I think that's what teams have to weigh here. Sean in terms of what exactly they need to do and getting involved with the big names, and how long are they willing to sit there and kind of have that money sitting there in escrow because they don't want obviously go out and start using it on other players to Bryce Harper makes a decision. They might be like crap we spent too much. We can't make that deal for Bryce Harper. Well, I mean, that's a possibility. But I don't see that happening. Because teams have an idea about Bryce Harper. They're talking to Scott Boris. They know if he has interest, so they're going to save the money until they hear his final answer. Yeah. But then they may hurt themselves. That is true. That's the problem. They may be hurting themselves. See I think the Phillies as much as I think they overpaid for Andrew mccutchen. Right. I think what the Phillies are looking at is. Look we need to outfielders. We're going to be in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes. Because we have a lot of money to spend. We got fifteen million dollars on the books this year and outfield with Andrew mccutchen. We can still fit another thirty thirty five million with Bryce Harper. Maybe another thirty million with Manny Machado, whatever it is. And maybe they can go out and make a big splash with everything. Right. That's the team that I think is going to be intriguing because if there's any team that potentially will go out and we'll get not just Harper, but also Machado. It's the Phillies. There's no other team in baseball right now, you can see spending money to bring in both Harper Machado and adding sixty to seventy million dollars payroll. The only team that can absorb that type of hit is affiliate because their payroll number isn't very high for next year. That would be fascinating, Sean. If the Philadelphia Phillies come out of the winter meetings or come out of the two thousand eighteen year, and they have signed Harper and Machado. And by the way, it's not crazy to think they could do it. Seriously. Heard that too. It is crazy that signing both of those guys. Why not? Why not six million? In two players for the next ten years. Yeah. They got the money. Got the money crazy. Seriously. They got the money to do it. Why not love to see it happen? I seven hundred million. Yeah, they're not doing that. I don't remember the Phillies are about to start their own regional networks soon to okay. They have a terrible TV deal. They're about to start their own regional network. To me be interesting to find out what that means financially. Because I thought there a big market team people show up at citizens Bank park, the Phillies, you know, are they make money. The question is if they get their regional network, they can be making a heck of a lot more money. If that's the case. Yes. Seven hundred million dollars over the next ten years from shadow and Harper, and you know, how packed the stands. No question about it for ten years going with those two big names. All right. So what did Tony LaRussa say backing up Harold Baines for a hall of fame induction? We'll tell you next going deep. Dan, Schwartzman, NBC sports radio in the NBC sports radio mobile app.

"Believe every bo- casino each week, the degenerate trifecta, and I set sail tackling fake gambling propositions related to sports and pop culture events in honor of Harold Baines induction into the baseball hall of fame poly kid you actually lost sleep over this. I'm not just saying that you tag. You said you were up late at night looking at stats for other more worthy candidates. Yeah. It drives me crazy. So, you know, I'm a stickler for this baseball hall of fame stuff more so than any all hall of fame. Right. And when I saw this. I didn't even realize I think it was a day late realizing this. Yeah. That Harold Baines got into the hall of fame, and I was just blown away by it. I really nothing against how bays personally speaking is probably seems like quite a nice gentleman. And I think that's why he got in because he's a nice guy. It's just not right. He's in because of his stats stats. Right. Is that what they say like as a D H E put up real numbers. But I I don't know even like Albert bell. Who was who's left in the lurch? I figured he was a nobody wants to hear this. But he was a greater presence. You frayed when Albert bell step to the PLO Backley, right? Not so much Harold Baines and brother by what'd you say? It was like seventh and MVP voting. Once or his best. I think ninth was his best here like every he played like forty five years and at three hundred season. So it was like I just thought if he's gonna make for D H, then you might as well start with Edgar Martinez should have made it. All right. Well, again, nothing against how Baynes, but captain Morgan presents this. So he he made a list and Harold Baines out of the worst hall of famers in any sport. You could bet on this. How Baynes five to two odds? Yon standard the kicker four to one odds. He's in the hall of fame sixty six percent field goal. He wouldn't start for the chargers at this point Bill Mazeroski six to one odds to sixty hitter for the pirates under and thirty eight home runs. Good field a good glove. But you know, doesn't it that Homer in the nineteen sixty World Series. We don't hear about Bill Mazeroski and hall of fame, and draws impetuous rich and eight to one look, I feel bad met his demise very very sad way. But he did most of his damage in the European leagues for four seasons. He was a nets. He the New York media went. Crazy. You know, great great shooter. But I don't know about a hall of Famer he's eight to one odds and the field is seven to two odds. So you can go Bain Stenner rude Mazziarol, Patrick or the field worst hall of Famer in any sport parley kids. Start us off. Did you go with Baynes? Yeah, I'm gonna pay and sell them. Because to me this one really for some reason struck a chord with me, you know, a Ben Lindbergh, maybe you guys know from the ringer wrote a really nice piece about the case against how Baynes I don't even think he had to provide really much information at all to be honest with you all you got to really do is look at the numbers. This guy. Sal was twice in the top ten veep, veep MVP voting with the ninth place finish being the hardest one. So it's harder to get into our hall of fame RAV is to get into the baseball hall of fame. That is as been what's happened here. Take it seriously, look at the absolute, obviously, take this much more serious..

Harold Baines Goede veterans committee index Harold Baines and Lee Smith. Okay. You gotta draw distinction between the two Lee Smith. You could argue deserves the hall of fame. Third all time in saves once got more than fifty percent of the vote, which is two thirds of what you need. That's a lot of support Harold Baines. Thanks to Gus mentioned the most support he ever got was six percent. It's an insult to the Baseball Writers Association electorate when the veterans committee swoops in. I swear it is right actually, and my colleague Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald is the president of the BBC W A, and he's going to get an earful for me. I'll tell you that not that he made the veterans committee gave it its power. But still no it is an insult because they're. Ear full from you. He doesn't have anything to do with just like yelling at Clark. He's a good guy. Covers the Marlins like nobody's business. He's fantastic.

"With Dan Schwartzman. So. It is our number three major league baseball. Well, the hall of fame, thankfully is not major league baseball's it's the national baseball hall of fame as they went from teetering on irrelevant to literally being irrelevant in a matter of one day. A sixteen person today's game committee. That's what it's called today's game committee sixteen people, by the way are on this committee have decided to send to more people to the hall of fame. They have sent in no joke here. Harold Baines and Lee Smith. Producer Shawn Watson Makia when you sent me that text saying that Lee Smith and Harold danger in the hall of fame. I honestly thought you were kidding. I really thought it was a joke. I did not take you seriously. It's not a joke. Saggio? Well, here's what's sad. That's usually the case with you. But this is a committee. Listen to these names on today's game committee. Roberto Alamar burp, Lila van Pat, Gillick, Tony LaRussa. Greg maddux. Joe Morgan John holts Ozzie Smith, Joe Torry, major league executives Alviela, Paul Beeston, AB mcphail, Jerry Reinsdorf, the media members are Claire Smith Tim Kirk, Steve, okay? I mean, these are baseball people, right? He's people who've been around the game all their life yet. Somehow twelve of these sixteen people voted for Harold Baines and Lee Smith. I mean Smith got sixteen sixteen Harold Baines got twelve twelve idiots on that thing that felt Harold Baines is a hall of Famer. Well, let's look at Harold Baines. Shall we, Sean? Let's do he spent five years on the actual baseball writers of America sociation hall of fame. Ballot. Never got more than six point one percent of the vote. Six point one. Yeah. He had nice numbers when he retired. He never finished higher than ninth in the MVP voting. Any only finished top twenty four times. Never led the league in home runs. Never led. The league Rb is never led the league in batting average led the league in slugging wants, and that's literally the only thing he ever led the league in twenty two years. His average season was to eighty nine with twenty two homers and ninety three Rb is hardly a hall of Famer. Hey, Sean, guests how many years Harold Baines was able to get over one hundred runs scored in a season. Three. Zero. Never scored over one hundred runs in a season. Harold Baines had two years three years of one hundred plus RBI's in twenty two years. This has opened the floodgates for everybody to gay Don Mattingly come on down look at the people that didn't get in by the way, Shawn. Okay. Look at some of the names of those who did not make it from this. Today's. You know, the the today's whatever the hell you want to call this darn committee. Are you ready? Today's game committee. Joe carter. I mean, if you put Harold Baines, Sean, I mean, Joe Carter's a similar player. Right -solutely. Yep. I'd put maybe even more dominant in his prime. Albert bell was clearly a better player in his prime by a mild than Harold Baines. He just wasn't liked. But our bell was an absolute monster. And he doesn't get in while Harold Baines gets in Albert bell in a much shorter career. Hit what one less homerun. Harold Baines hit three hundred and eighty four home runs in twenty two years Albert bell hit three hundred and Eighty-one home runs in twelve years. Albert bell led the league in home runs once in doubles once in runs once in our B is three times in slugging twice in o-. PS once finished top ten in the MVP voting five times. But Harold Baines gets into the hall of fame and Albert bell doesn't now he might have been a jerk. No question about it, Sean. But I don't care if he was a jerk. It's about what he did on the field and Albert bell was much more dominant player than Harold Baines ever was how does he get it over? We know why? Because he was a jerk. That's why he's not in credible. Joe Carter doesn't get in. I mean, come on what a joke, and this is this this this rooms any I used to defend the hall of fame. I did I used to Ahmed not anymore. I can't defend this nonsense. I mean, this is you know, we've always had the Phil Rizzuto of the world, but you can always. But you know, he's a great. He was a great Phil Rizzuto was a great fielder. Right me. He can do that. Had won MVP, by the way, he at least had an MVP. VP? Yeah. At least you want to any played a defensive position shorts at shortstop. Right. You could say look pee wee Reese made it you can put Phil Rizzuto on who's the equivalent to Harold Baines. So how's Fred McGriff? Not in. If Harold Baines is in is it Fred McGriff, a lock. Right. Doc. Next year next year while they don't meet till twenty twenty one. I guess is the next time they meet boy. Yeah, they meet next better be buying some nice Christmas gifts for this. So this is what are you ready for this? There's four committees right now. In twenty in two thousand.

"Back to Gary, and Larry Gary radnich and Larry. Ios six. We all follow this stuff pretty close. But you really have to read this slow and soak it in Lees Smith. And Harold Baines. Go into the hall of fame. Mithra lever. Baynes outstanding hitter primarily A D H they were selected by and the quotas. Today's game Eric committee. A sixteen member panel appointed by the hall of fame to review players retired for at least fifteen seasons who were passed over by the writers for the for lack of a better term, the regular hall of fame. It's it's amazing. Really that these guys got in July twenty first twenty nineteen up in Cooperstown. New York, they'll they'll be inducted in. But yeah, elected to the hall of fame as the results of the sixteen member panel. You need a twelve votes to get in. Now, you Smith was unanimous and Baynes got to twelve votes necessary. Lou Pinella fell one vote short of the hall. So he's he's on the outside looking in. But it is amazing. Because I mean Baynes never got more than six point one percent of the vote on the regular ballot and Lee Smith who was a twenty year career almost and he played eighteen years in the big leagues. And he owned the record for saves when he retired seven time all star. But he never reached fifty one percent, you know, in in the voting. So these guys were not headed towards Cooperstown. And now they are and good good for both of them. Lease myth has been in the giant organization for a number of years now eighteen year career, you know, now sixty one years old seven time all star. He's just incredible four hundred seventy eight saves led five different teams. I believe and never pitched giants. Save you must you know have taken a liking to him or something for him to be in the giants organization. Never pitch for. Yeah. I wonder maybe pole polar at somebody. Maybe maybe dusty. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know. You know, he obviously had been a minor league instructor for a long long. Yeah. I'm not sure who brought him officially to the giants. But he's been been with the giants for a number of years now and Harold Baines is fifty nine now he was a two eighty nine career hitter two hundred or three hundred and eighty four career home runs twenty two year career. I mean, that's the thing. I mean, this guy just was timeless six time all star as I said, he never got more than six point one percent of the vote. I mean, that's what's weird there. Yeah. Smith was close. You know are closer, certainly, no, sir. Let me see where exactly one percent fifty one percents. I'm saying that's different than six percent. Right. But Jerry Reinsdorf was on the committee, and Jerry Reinsdorf is the owner of the White Sox. And I'm sure pounded the table repeatedly for Harold Baines. And I I don't know. I don't know how you weigh in on this. Would you rather see the Don Mattingly will Clark Gideon as far as you know, guys who were great like. They won MVP of their league at times, you could argue they were the best player in the league. But they don't have the longevity. Or would you take a guy? Like Baynes who never was the MVP never was the best player in the league. He may never have been the second or third best player those he has longevity. Twenty two years is I mean, that's that's epic. Edgar Martinez is not in the hall of fame though. I think he got what seventy percent of the regular ballots. You'll get in he'll get in. I mean, if you compare well Clark to Harold Baines. Wouldn't you think we'll Clark ahead? Maybe we're all biased Harold Baines accumulated greater stats in his twenty two years, then will Clark accumulated in his career. But that's my point is that I'd rather have superstar players who at some point. We're the best in there in the league. And maybe don't have the longevity. Like, I can make an argument that Don mattingley was a was a hall of fame ballplayer. He was he was as good as any player in his era. There for a few years. Well, we're on track with their health their body. You know, let them down and Maggie had back problems will didn't age all that. Well, and you know, it's all personal preference. Personally. I mean, it's twenty two years in the big leagues needs to be respected as well. Yeah. But I just would rather see the guys who were at the very top of the game. Get in over guys who have long Chevy, I would tend to agree with you. And the only thing like I'm looking at Baynes how many years of those twenty two that's what you have to to look up. You know, he had a few years where he didn't do much. He played for the as on that great ninety team that was was upset by Cincinnati and infect swept by Cincinnati. And that's what I was saying before the break, he had you know, how again just for the sake of Rb. He did not wanna talk apparently really night LaRussa as a nice guy. But that was not his thing. And I remember sitting there with him and just. Nobody else around and I wasn't trying to be funny. I just said I bet I bet if you had your druthers you'd rather be out there every day as an everyday player rather than just sitting there having to wait for four at bats. What did he say nothing? He just use quiet. Nobody just stared at me. And then I said Jesus you got to say in a mean way, but he got. Rough question. No. That was it. He did not talk. He was quiet. What a smooth player. He was what a smooth lefthanded swing fits fits a SOX fan. So he he could speak endlessly about Harold Baines. But fourteen of his twenty two years with the socks I pick in the draft. I picking the Seventy-seven draft played for five different teams four hundred and eighty eight doubles three hundred and eighty eighty four home runs. He says wasn't really expecting it. But very grateful that had happened. I have four wonderful kids who are very proud of their dead today. So Harold Baines in looking at his stats to see of all of those twenty two. Yes, he the last the last two years he went back to Chicago. And and didn't play much. You know what I mean? I mean, but still the rest of the stats are good yet. Larry go online here. And he was he was very very consistent very consistent player. He was a D H for sixteen hundred forty three of his twenty eight hundred and thirty games. And now they're saying edgar's that probably will get Edgar in as well. Edgar martinez. Anna's had seventy point four percent of the ballots in two thousand eighteen you need seventy five percent to gain election. I would imagine Edgar gets in this year. But but WH Smith way to go Harold Baines to you know, this whole thing. I mean, when you're a hall of fame now, some people have real like, I I want this to be incredibly difficult. I only want the creme de LA cramp. I get that. I get that. But at the same time, if you're baseball or any sport for that matter, your hall of famers, become your embassador your bass, and you need more in Basseterre is your you know, you've never the consumer has more options now than ever before. You know, I I'm not saying that everybody in you know, it's not like a king's ransom at recess or something and announce, hey, everybody back into the recess into the into the game of prisoner poison or whatever it is. But I'm just saying the when you put a guy in the hall of fame, he becomes that much stronger of an ambassador for your sports. And i'm. Sure. The there's an awful lot of people in Chicago today, we're real happy that least Smith and Harold Baines are in. And maybe that wins over some fans over the course that's why I don't put much stock in anything. It's voted on. And when I say, there's obviously if you're great, you're great. But these guys who want to keep people out or make it so selective. That's just to make their own ego. Feel good like my vote. You know, I'm really not gonna bend here. I don't think it's the hall of very good. I understand what their point is their point. Is that they only want the true great hall of famers. They don't want guys who are just like pretty good. And I have no argument with that. They wanted to be elite player. I'm even here's a guy who wrote for sl dot com. The headline is Harold Baines. Stunning hall of fame election is an embarrassment, and then he goes on and on about pretty much what we were talking about. Harold banks just is not deserve. To be in there. And I don't know if it's an embarrassment. I sure you could pick. Yeah. Mattingly. Baynes himself is saying he's surprised then that tells you all you need to know. He's surprised he didn't expect to get in. I was up for to Orel Hershiser. Jeez. On that one season could be in the hall of fame one thousand nine hundred eight there's never been a pitcher, the domain. I'll give you one more. You can laugh all you want George Steinbrenner though, he won a lot of rings as an owner. You know, and he was up. Ballot. This year. We're George Steinbrenner Panella Panella got the close vote Charlie manual, the former manager the fills David Johnson who managed obviously, the Eighty-six mats and smother teams along the way Hershiser will Clark Joe Carter who hit the bomb. The ended the ninety three series off of Mitch Williams and then Albert bell. I will say this Albert bell. No doubt in my mind. Got robbed off his nineteen ninety-five MVP and the guy had fifty doubles and fifty homers and he finished second to move on. Yeah. Because Mo Vaughn was media friendly and nice and everybody liked bad. The media though. Couldn't win these awards or not win based on. You know, do you kiss? Henry Schuman's asks I mean, come on. I mean, that's just not should not be the trike Tiriac. It'd be a goal for. Just saying, I'm not nice, John shea whole Albert Albert bell. I just think, you know, I don't know but his hall of fame resume. I haven't studied him, but ninety check is ninety five MVP candidacy he lost out to to mow. Von we got one guy here is very upset. Joel. Fifty two doubles fifty homers or something like that. You you think Baynes no way hall of fame, you're on Cambier? My angle is the baseball hall of fame has always been like the upper echelon is it a notch above football and basketball hockey whatnot. You know because it only took the top extreme top tier? Like baynton? I mean, it seems like this was more of a a move on. This Lewis senior committee choice. You know, I think Lee Smith is worthy of it this way. When when you know when you get a first round pick, our when you're a first ballot hall of Famer that super prestige as opposed being positively. Hey, Joe, let let me stop for a moment. I'm just seeing this sixteen people voted three of them. Baynes. Played for Pat Gillick, Tony LaRussa, and Jerry Reinsdorf the White Sox. So there you go. Hey, guys. Swung the room. I these guys all broke it down. Yeah. Yeah. I've LaRussa stands up and says, hey, this guy was great. What he did for us? Somebody's gonna say, no he sucked. So. Yeah. That everybody needs an advocate he'd sounded like in that room had three. So that's part of the recent Joel how about you me. Larry, we'll go to Cooperstown in pick it. Yeah. Yeah. There you go. We'll get our signs out there with Tom. You know, this is unfair. And all right. Yeah. Let's do it. Carey is driving. He's got the best vehicle. Think.

"Just or the herald Baines did I don't know. I mean held been you know, he debuted in nineteen eighty and had enough staying. Power that I certainly remember Harold Baines like not just as a player, but as a good player, and I was not close to being born yet when herald feigns debuted in the big leagues. So I mean good for him. But man, and I really do wonder what the effect of this will be in, you know, like hopefully, not a lot other than getting at grin. 'cause there's just no argument for keeping at grout. But you never really wanna make the argument like, well, here's the worst player who's in. This guy's better than that guy. So let's put him in. I mean, you could have made that argument probably four hair bands of you'd wanted to. So I don't encourage that argument. But if anyone is looking at Harold Baines is a favor now, it's almost like when some voters just said a few years ago. Okay. Well, bud ceilings in so how are we going to keep PD guys out or not vote for PD guys? If the Commissioner who presided over the PD era is in. It's almost like that. I mean, I know that some people. Some writers have already submitted their ballots for this round of voting. But just like the fact that we might have a ho fame with Harold Baines in it and not Mike Mussina or Larry Walker or Jim Edmonds or Altis clearly superior players to Harold Baines. It just I don't know. It's it's not ideal. I hate the argument I understand you can look at this and say, oh, this is precedent setting. So like you were saying, well, if Harold Baines is in than therefore, all these other players have to be scholas- be, and obviously SPN, and I I understand it 'cause you're looking for some sort of consistency, and you figure well, you know, that that shattered it, but you know, it's like without getting political. It's like saying our current situation is precedent setting like well, as if we had this as a as a government than we guess, we might as well have more governments like this. It's like Jeffrey Loria set president because we had a terrible owner in major league baseball. We might as well open the door from work. Terrible owners. If a bad thing happens that shouldn't be console. Precedent that should be considered. Okay. A bad thing happened. Let's make sure that it is just the anomaly we don't continue to let bad things happen. Because if if you allow Harold Baines in the hall of fame like if herald herald what how do you drop the bar the bars dropped so low to let in Harold Baines that if dropped by equivalent amount, then we're just putting in someone who's like play the baseball game before in the majors. And then what is the museum even mean anymore? So again, you know, what you said fifteen minutes ago. I don't wanna pile on herald bands. And it's all we've been doing. But really the opponents has had a good career spent a lot of seasons as an average or above average player. Good for him. He played until he was forty two. I might not have be able to walk when I'm forty two credit to herald, Dan's very impressive. You'll get to deliver a speech where he will also probably deliver an average or slightly above average speech that goes on for a very long time. And then five percent of people like it except like..

"Sunday night defence a bit of a slog fast early year bears up six three jarred GOP just completed three passes in a row at one point three for ten with a pick. Then put a lot of pressure on them and doesn't look like he likes throwing it in the cold weather up there in Chicago. But he has picked up a little bit here of late. Rams. Gotta drive going after they converted on a fourth down fake punt conversion they said the receiver cut the ball didn't make the first down yardage Rams challenged correctly overturned he made it by about a yard. Rams driving trying to get back down three against the bears. Sex change to go in the second quarter. On the hall of fame as I mentioned with Scott Miller when I just Ataman today's game era balloting. It's they have committees that review players who don't get voted in managers owners and the like who can get selected for the hall of fame. It's not just war. Former players who didn't get it in. This committee has been in place. Two years. Does the second year they elected for guides. It's all been former players now haven't Davenport in owner, George Steinbrenner was up to potentially be selected this year. He didn't make it to dead Lee Smith and Harold Baines, and Scott was very diplomatic and how he entered it. He said this year when Trammell and Morris got in he'd been voting for travel and Morris all along. So glad that they got in because he thought his fellow writers should have been voting the same way. He did this year. He said, gee, I didn't really vote for at least met the Harold Bank. It's okay. It's it's getting a little bit big. Oh, that's what is. It's gonna come down to if you been voting for someone like, I'll tell you. Fred McGriff is a guy who I would have the last ten years. I get a ballot. If I had one I would check off his name every year. He's in the twenty percentile he needs to get to seventy five. It's highly unlikely he's ever going to get in Evan when he gets in from the Ted today's game balloting. I'll be happy because I think of Fred McGriff is all but there are guys that get passed up like Larry Walker. Some people make the argument for library walk. I don't think walks the hall of Famer, I don't think Jeff Kent who some people say look at his numbers second base at that position. And he benefited from being in that line of Barry Bonds, he almost benefited from steroids. Even though we don't know that he ever took him concede played with bonds during all those great years, which is not all of Famer. So when and if he were to get in in this type of way, I'll say this is just wrong. Don't you think this is the hall of very good now, not they are absolutely doing with with the added numbers? Going to be putting into these other committees. It's going to lessen the quality of the whole. I mean, listen, I not not everybody around the country is a Yankee fan. But how how how did they put these guys in the hall of fame and George Steinbrenner whether you like him or not? George Steinbrenner meant a lot to the game of baseball. Whether you whether you whether you love him or hate him. The guy belongs in the hall of fame changes the way bonds and Clemens being holiday. Yes. I do. Okay. Well, we'll see do. I I have higher standards than you. That's obvious. I don't think bonds are Clements should be because I think they both cheated and era. That was the era. Cheating is cheating. They were players that didn't shoot. I don't believe. Fred McGriff ever did a steroid. And I think he's being unfairly grouped with those players to his numbers are being complained to others in those era. But he didn't cheat while other guys who cheating, so yes, I take a stand against people that I believe Noah, here's enough anger. I wouldn't get my vote if and when Manny Ramirez won't get my vote. Sammy Sosa would it never got my boat. Mark. Maguire would have never got my vote. All those guys. I would keep them all out and the same with George. He got suspended tweet from baseball. See I think the the steroid guys because that's the era that they played in. I think you put them in. But I think on their plaque. I think you put Woolsey. They were caught. I've heard that before. Now, you cheated you don't get the up in Cooperstown bones, and that would be the same while George did a lot of good things for baseball. And he put assignment in the baseball. And every Yankee fan he gave you a lot of great years. Joy. It's not just all about Yankee fans about the entire game. And he was suspended twice in had issues and get I would that would keep me from voting for Mr. Steinbrenner if I were on the new game Eric committee. So you wanna stick baseball in the final twenty five minutes on the phone hit me up, Eric. Thanks for hanging punch.
