I mean, he was a man of no words on Friday. But there's not that big of a difference. Between few words, no words. That's that's true. But actually chatter when when when a re he realized that he didn't have to do the interview. It was kind of a nice grim that spread it. He was skipping throwing glitter.

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.

I'm trying to think of the guy not not Bettencourt. He's he's he's he was Toronto's utility guy shit. Why? Oh. Solarte's is a free agency. Right. So a free agent. Yeah. So I mean that would be an upgrade for Toronto to go back to go out and get more win having parted ways with a young heart of the seller tape. I'm doubling down. I'm going back to the well, I think I was a week early. I'm going Wade Miley to the brewers Wade Miley to the brewers I'm sticking with that not very creative. But you know, sometimes it's best not to reach. All right. We'll hit that that we will see. Dallas has Dallas kaikal. Back to the Astros. I like that go bigger, go home Betty. Yeah. I mean, the Phillies the Philly's kinda they're just waiting around on someone. I feel like if I don't they're going to end up with one of the other. I feel like, but what are they missing out on? In the meantime, is say that once one of those dominoes falls. They all fall within the next ten days. Yeah. Yeah. You think about leaders signed somewhere before pitchers and catchers report cares? Right. So. It'd be half of J Dallas myself we once again want to say, congratulations to Harold Baines, the hall of fame. We'll see extra week. Wow..

"That comes to mind is Ray Durham, I just I really wanna talk to rate Durham of going over twenty six against Mariano Rivera with only three strikeouts. So if anyone knows about getting soft contact of Marino era, it would be Ray Durham, I have tried twice. Now. I tried. When Rivera was retiring, I try to get now I have texted and emailed and called rate Durham, poor red Durham, I understand why he evidently is that interested in talking about going hitless against my VERA, probably not happy memories. But I would love to talk to him about that. And I I wish she had a sense of humor about it. Because a Reiter really good player. And it's it's always endearing. I think when someone can laugh at their own failures. And mistakes and knowledge the ways in which they came up short. So I would like to hear him talk about how he failed against VERA. And there's no shame in that. Because Rivera is the only unanimous Famer ever. So it's almost a badge of honor to have been bed against Marian Rivera. Anyway, maybe someday should point out that raider, not a meaningfully inferior major league player than hell. Baynes yellow, no, not at all. Right. Durham, very good. I think yeah. Actually, when I did my my hall of Baynes for looking up, which players would be in the hall of fame. If we use the positional standard of Harold Baines, relative to outfielders, and I think rate Durham was the new bar for second baseman in the hall of Baynes. So he is very much equivalent to him. Another thing that I want to mention about Rivera. You noted the other day when I think we re talking about out of you know, that the Anki is have just had a lot of Super Bowl pens and our listener in patriots supporter. Mitch mcconnell. Hey, was inspired. By that comment to look up. The Yankees bullpen win probability added since nineteen ninety six which is marina various first full relief season. And it is pretty extraordinary. If you just look up bullpen WPA nine hundred.

"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.

"Games over five hundred. Didn't win twenty games until this last season. Guy was a very good pitcher. It really was. Really was very funny. You say you hall of fame, but he was like I think of. Mike be seen. I say he's really good. I don't think he's great. And I know the hall of fame for good is is not really good. It's great. But I guess if you're really good for a long time, you get you can get into the hall of fame. Like Marianna was great. Now. I mean, he's great. The guys that you expect to go to. I mean, Geeta was great heroes. Great. Manny Ramirez was great forget the steroids were couple minutes. I mean, those guys were great. There's no question about those guys going hall of fame. I mean, they even an issue. He was really good. He wasn't great. I want to call them. Great. All right. So it looks like they're getting ready finally to do this. I mean, they they wanna turn it into gone with the wind. Idelson went up to take this job was along. Man. It's been a long time. Now probably probably fifteen years ago when he went up to take this job. Remember when he when he took it. Deal with Jeff Idelson all the time. I remember when he did when he went up to do looking for another big class today. He says, let's see how many we got. Sounds like four hundred more than four how about if we get really something wild you like get one of the steroid guys and that will make a wild. But I don't think so. As soon as I hear it. I will tell you. As time to learn of the election and see who. We'll be on the stage joining Harold Baines and Lee Smith who voted in and obviously before. Ernst and young was involved. If you care they verified the action here, we go. Four hundred and five ballots were cast three hundred nineteen votes were needed to get in. And the hall of fame bolstered its resume its roster in a big way. Getting in and Marianne was getting because he said ones defined by great hitting the other by great pitching purely by great hitting which means obviously Edgar. So let's see what we have here. We're waiting now for the announcement..

"Our guest is our buddy we love her as a comic. And we love her as a sports fan. No one better. And we love her as a friend, and friend rehabilitator. Thanks for joining us guys. It's a hot stove hot stove time. Your favorite sport stove is so hot I would say it's like not very hot. Yeah. About the stove alive. Catchers flow weeks. Yes, for sure. But I just mean like over the how do you guys do you are you guys into the off-season just like change to other? So for a brief I think once the national championship game is over and we're kinda heading towards the Super Bowl. There's the week that no one does anything. So this weekend is you know, when we're we're we're recording. This actually this will drop on Friday. So this weekend. The playoff games are great. I can't wait to see the NFL CNN NFC championship. That'll be great. But then there's like two weeks, and then the Super Bowl is it is what it is. But I mean, my mind like turns to baseball already because you've got the hall of fame announcements, which is like now, it's fascinating. Oh, yeah. The the the herald Baynes of ori- line all the fact that the writers got him in. I'm just thinking of all the players in the hall of fame who are like, are you kidding me? This guy's in here. Cheapens the way and by the way, Harold Baines at great career is the hall of Famer. I mean, we're always having is the hall of Famer conversations that too that's the beauty of. I mean, look, let's talk Harold Baines. But I to me somebody that I feel like I will I don't know that he's ever going to get in. But I think that he should is Gary Sheffield. From like the multiple team of him. So weird to me. But also, it makes so much sense. You make your Medicare Sheffield because we shot this thing for TBS, and I went down to shoot stuff with him. Pedro and Casey stern. Pedro martinez. Jimmy Rollins in him. And so for a while. This is the best thing that we could have done is. We were sitting and watching the playoff games because they were doing the coverage between the game. So we watched cubs. Dodgers may there's like two years ago. And I sat and watched the game with them. Okay. So sitting with dudes and watching them, basically what you wish they would do what they wind up doing in between the games is like analyze it. As it's going on Pedro's watching. I wouldn't throw that weight. Wait, wait, what three Sheffield he was? So smart, and he was so knowledgeable and what he talked about..
