"His role was a strong as any bloody sock game or big unit, and Schilling did. For Bob Brenly in Arizona saw. I just think it's a different debate there because most of the time they don't really bring postseason and I've argued the postseason is just as important. More important way more important than the regular season. Now, all of a sudden for Schilling You know, he's getting all of these accolades for postseason. They finally got Jack Morrison. So the point is, I just I don't want to hear the three of them all together. Bonds and Clemens are in a different category. Because the P E. D Allegations. I mean, nothing's been proven with them, but we all have our own suspicions with the shilling. It's what he's done since he's retired. What he did as a player when he retired is a man and also I just don't because the body you work there to put Curt Schilling in the Hall of Fame over By the blue Dave Stewart. But I could go on and on where I could make arguments that those guys postseason rivals shilling and certainly begin the conversation where you just can't put shilling in the same conversation with bonds of claimants. And into me, like you said Shilling. Shilling is a totally different case because I think if he had played the game as as we've talked about many times, others have and not only baseball, but in the other sports. And sometimes the business game that you have to play. I think he'd be in but due to his politics, and some of the things he's done, said people least pissed off. He's not in the Hall of Fame because he's 16 votes short Now, obviously, bonds and Clemens or in a different situation, and people vote won't vote for them for different reasons. But I don't know how you overcome that the human element to the whole thing because people don't like him personally, clearly because I think he's a Hall of Famer as a baseball player, and I've always thought That that's what it should be about, but clearly see. My point is, I don't I don't necessarily agree that he is the whole thing. I think that's a borderline debate. He went 216 games and he pitched in a time when You know, he took the ball 35 times a year every year and he threw 282 268 2 3rd 1 year 2 56. I mean, it wasn't like you were going with openers and You know he couldn't go through. The lineup is second or third time. Curt Schilling had a number of complete games and 83 complete games so that the won lost record is more applicable with him. Bumgarner and influence It came in the modern player today. Devalued by that and you know, going back to, you know, Vita pitching out of the bullpen in the world, serious with the A's would fight. It did obviously, his career, you know, winning a Cy Young head of American leg MVP in the same year. Something shilling. You know, it's just shilling ever win a Cy Young in his career. He never won a single one. He finished second three different times and VP voting. The highest he ever got was number 10. So I'm not making the argument based on what he's done off. I think that is, you know you would hold your vote after what he said about January the sixth and everything, he said. Since if you chose to My bone of contention. I don't necessarily think that Curt Schilling's on field accomplishment is worthy of the Hall of Fame and certainly don't lump him in with Barry Bonds and Roger Clements. Not the same conversation, sir. And again. Look if people did if he fell, 16 votes short. Because people didn't think as a baseball player. He deserved to be in the Hall of Fame, then that's fine and whether you agree with it, and I'd certainly don't but I wouldn't take into consideration his political views and some of the things, he said. Because I just don't think the relevant where is bonds and Clemens that was related to baseball. Look, I wouldn't want to hang out with Schilling and he's not a good guy, but there's a lot of guys like that in the Hall of Fame. So where do you draw the line? I think you 16 votes short because people don't like him, but I could be wrong. Well, I mean, look out. Look at Stewart's career Look, Vita blues career compared to him and tell me why he gets in and those guys don't get in. Would you think, though, that when a guy like that gets in, then it could open the door for a stew, because clearly shilling would get in. Based on the fact that he played for a very high profile organization and the Red Sox, the bloody sock all those different things that come to mind the people, whereas if you're playing for the twins or somebody else he's not getting in. He gets in because Stu's overall body of work is not there as far as the won lost record, But Dave Stewart was a big game pitcher, whether it was the American League Championship Syriza with the A's or the Toronto Blue Jays, looking his world serious record. As a World Series M V P but the body you worked. I don't I don't. I don't actually think stew should be in to be honest with you. But if you're gonna put shilling in, based on his postseason accomplishments than I think stew Has to be revisited. Obviously, he's no longer eligible as far as the 10 year. I don't know where he would be beyond that. But I also think another thing you've got to be concerned about. With the writers if if he does get voted in Curt Schilling, despite what he said about the writers, you know, yesterday after he was he came so close, and the bonds hasn't said a peeper Clements hasn't said a peep. Do you want to give him that stage on the Hall of Fame Sunday to give a speech that he may give That may have Ah, tremendous reaction in this country. So that's a defector, I think, And I think words do matter. We've learned that and what he's done with his words does matter to me, but my main bone of contention is his overall body of work. I'm not saying he's not a Hall of Famer, but I'm saying he's a borderline case. Don't say it. Schilling Bonds Clements Those guys Hadfield accomplishment is not even worthy of the Hall of Fame discussion. If you had a game among the Hall of Famers only Roger starting the game, and Vines is sitting third in the game, so and you know, Curt Schilling wouldn't be on the roster based on that, he said. Some big moments and the strikeout years I'm not saying he's not a worthy candidate. But it's not the same realm as very Vanja. Roger Clements give his thoughts text line is helping Foreign 5856 to 745 anyway can be our I've got it right in front of the best ones. Well, read on the air. We got a great guest list today. A little bit of thawing in baseball is for some signings local that impact the Giants and the A's will get into that. And we'll tell you about the guest list, which starts up a 10 30 on the hair on the SportsCenter. You were listening to Papa and Lund on both sides of the dialogue. KNBR 1045 FM and 6 80 A M.

"It's just not mobile. He's not mobile. So you just You know, he's a pocket passer. Who's not that durable. But he throws a good ball. It's just you got working around him. You gotta have everything I'll say this for for Jacksonville and Lawrence. You know on paper, you go. Wow, man, he they're going, he said. They're terrible team, and they are but They've got some pieces in place right now. That would make Laurence perfect. I mean that rookie running back James Robinson is a terrific player. They should all to the Colorado receiver had a decent year. Deka teach each Ark who you know. Now he's kind of put on weight Rod since the last few days. He's stronger and better, So they got a pretty good left tackle and Cam Robinson. There's they got some pieces. There were Lawrence won't just be totally naked. I think when, when they moved in front of the Jets, Yeah. He lost his Q rating going from Jackson, New York to Jacksonville, but he may have gained a better chance to succeed on the field. Still the JAG wars until proven otherwise been everything. I'm sit. There obviously is right. But there's still the Jack Morrison to build that team of Nancy Championship game like, three years ago. Yeah, they're second one in franchise history. So maybe you're like, really did that wasn't doing how to kill her deed? No, wait, wait. Not only were they in the a F c championship game. Shouldn't we have a lead? Yeah, Yeah, the one that camp Yeah, but Doug Marone was like I'm afraid to win Scary. It's crazy camp. Right back to the Jaguars. Whenever you're right, there's no way we're still comes. It's like the Marlins and the Rays. All that you're good and all of a sudden like now we don't like to be in good thing. Let's go back to sucking. The most fascinating thing about this year's draft is what the Jets do. That the Jets his side they're going to move on from Donald. Then Donald warned of somewhere else is well and that it's a matter of. Do you believe in Darnel? Did you order you got a handicap? The quarterback thing this year and I'm glad we have Brock on and Greg because they, you know, they're good as good as any. Brock watches both the college of the pro game. You know who who's you gotta make the right call. Whoever we don't know what Which of these guys is gonna be good over the next five years, but Some is good. Some of these guys, you're gonna bottom out some of these guys. You're gonna wind up a Super Bowl rings, and it's like you gotta pick the right one. Tough boy. That's why the especially this draft when you have a choice of those quarterbacks, and again if you believe in Donald, then you need to go get Sul and, you know, short your left tackle spot for a decade and you be good to go. Good to go there if you don't believe in him. You can take one of their two quarterbacks, Then that's left and probably recoup. I don't know. What do you think Rudy? Get for? Ah, Donald may be a late one or a mid to Manderley to somewhere around. What do you get What you get for him? You know, the speculation was at first the third round pick and then with her, And then people started to sing. What was gonna be higher? Barnwell? I think Suggested that somebody could get a second. But, you know, you know, I you know, it's hard to say it's beauty's in the eye of the beholder. I mean, you want Donald is a good option for Teams cap wise because he's only in that what 9 $10 million range instead of the 20 to $30 million range, So if you're the Niner issue is they got a huge core players They want to keep. And they got an expensive quarterback. So can they get a You know how many of these player what does the roster look like with Jimmy? What does the roster look like with whatever rookie and they may make that decision on the quarterback, all based on That you know what you know the two different rosters because that's a could be a dramatic difference. That's $20 million of players difference. They're the enemy. Interviewed with the JAG wars. Today, he finished up an interview the enemy did with the Jets. Yesterday. I would think that Eric the enemy's first question. Anyone who interviews for the Jets had coaching job there. First question will be Do I get to pick and choose what happens with the quarterback situation? If they say no, you move on, because if they make you stick with Sam Donald and you don't want to, that's a real bad way to start your marriage to the New York Jets. Larry's got headlines coming up Next Rock You were three o'clock here on the sports leader.

"We don't think you can expect is the unexpected. I thought. Every fall. Bankers were just goingto mom from 90 years Were you in attendance and any of those games I was not for a very specific reason. I was a senior in college at the time. And I wanted to come out. My father said Listen, if you want to come out to get you tickets, get your plane everything else. I only had one class. I was way ahead and credits so I only had one class. And if I was going to the World Series, we're going to miss the midterm. I asked the teacher Listen can I can do will make up on the mid term, So I know you got to be here that night. I said All right, then everyone. So I walked out of class at night Now I knew I was going to drop the class and I informed my father of this and he said, Wait a minute. You got one class and you're not going to make it through the class. You going to drop it and have no classes? I said Yes. So why not just take it next semester? And he goes and know your tickets or cancelled Plane tickets? World Series tickets. I was not allowed to go because I was going on his dime. I didn't have my own dime those days, eh? So I kind of shot myself in my foot with my academic standards, So I like you watch the World Series and celebrated. On television, like most of the country. And he went to Detroit. Didn't the 87 Tigers remember the epic collapse between the Bluejays on the Tiger's? He was part of that general manager too, You know, with Kirk Gibson and Jack Morrison. They lost the Minnesota and in the champion's championship serious, but he was one of the architects of the 87 series two. He was a V P. He was the Ah general and you for just one year because their GM I decided to quit in spring training right before the season started. So they didn't see that coming. Did know it was gonna happen, so they had annexed GM on the staff. So they said Go. You've got to take over his general manager. He said. No, thanks. And they said, What do you mean? No, Dave, we're gonna make you the general manager. He said I really don't want to do that anymore. I made more my million dollars agent I like my job, as is So they talked him into it. He said he would do it for one year. He did hey was told that he would be allowed to be in on picking of the next general manager, and his suggestion would be all but assured to get the gig. And in the season ended and the team was sold. So the new ownership came in and said Not only are you going to make the coffin, the new general manager Ah, your services are no longer needed either. So they cleaned house. A lot of people go, but Hey, didn't joy is time in Detroit as well? And he was on the New York Mets organization wasn't from 78 79. He was vice president of the Metro was GM from 75 to 79. That's where he got his first GM. Starting. He was with the match from 62 on their inaugural season and made his way up through the organization until he was named general manager in 75. So he was part of the miracle Mets wasn't in 1969 1969. Now ask me if I was at that one. I sure as heck Woz when Tommy Jones got the fly ball to deep left off the bat of Davey Johnson would have eventually become the Mets manager and win their only other World Series in 1986. I was sitting behind home plate for my father and attempted to run out onto the field. But he grabbed me before I got too far. So it's back into his office for a little campaign for an eight year old kid. It was pretty cool. It was a major upset, too, because Baltimore was very heavily favor. They remind games ahead of the Mets, you know, and after the third team, I thought they were gonna want them. And then the Mets won the next four games. Ripped off foreign around won a World Series..

"It was at least I'd say He's like a 20 half times through the order guy, get him through two times through and see how he's looking. How many pitches he's trying to do. We gotta watch him guess right. He's more than just the two. You know, they call him five and dive guys that's like old school. But you know, five innings in there out, I feel like my ADA isn't quite that type of guy words with Tampa Bay. A lot of their starters turning other than Blake Snell. Almost all their starters would be. That type of guy is intriguing. How different seems approach that yes, Rocco, you know, work with Kevin Cashen. The guys with the With with the race. It's probably been influence in that. And you know, West Johnson and pitching coach private leaves in it as well, because we talk about the you know the two times through the order thing. And my thing Is this though, innit short, Siri's You get short circuited one game next, you know game too. Everything's on the line, and I think you get it. You have to consider put your mochi in your most talented pitcher out in amount. If he's being effective and see how it goes, Jose Brill says three pitches for breaking balls now. And I'll give it a shot to see if he could know, getyou one more because he ended up bringing in Cody Stay. Shack Who's a CODIS improved now to strike out Guy strikeout rate ticked up to 10.2 per nine innings this year. But he's not. He's not a flamethrower. He's got a little better. But he tried to get two innings outstay check and almost did it, But they create hit the home run against him, and it kind of blew a Broncos plans there so I just think I'm old school. You know, I said I'd talk to Jack Morrison, Frank Viola, and I'm there cursing how pitchers of being used these Asian No eso and influences my theory. Sometimes. Yes, I know. Jack Morris has some opinions on the matter. This is there is one other thing I wanted to ask you about on the postseason series before we get to the other topic and looking ahead for the twins, too, But Byron Buxton didn't start game too. And I was shocked, and I followed what you and some of your colleagues have written. Do we still not really know what happened there? Why he didn't start why he was it seemed like maybe he wasn't really available because I feel like as bucks and goes to some extent. So goes the Twins offense, I think is a fair statement. Keith. I actually that when Bucks is playing well, the twins go from being B plus day. You know, he has at the effect on the lineup. We still don't know. And I've talked to the twins about this. I was like, Can you at least release a statement? Tell us how you felt because this is going to linger during the entire off season. And it's only the first question. We asked him in spring training. If we're allowed to talk to him from 6 Ft away is Yeah, it is good. It's gonna linger and you know we want we want something like that. The linger but That he clearly set was wrong with him. Some people thought that he looked a little weird in Game one when you play, and then we went off to bench, You sat in a dugout in Game two with sunglasses on the entire game. And then keep it. So, you know, conspiracy theory. I'm thinking Did you have a migraine or something? You know it's out. But once again, you're leaving us to use non verbal communication. Try to read body language to determine what's wrong with someone, which is not the way to go. So I'm still talking. It was, but we get boxed in to say something about what he felt off her game to that did not allow him to start that game. Everybody's going to what? So that's a good way to Segway into you something you wrote last week. I guess right after the their Siri's ended, you went through the entire roster eyes called this on startribune dot com. Player by player Look ahead. Will they stay? Or will they go? Because I think it's fascinating for two big reasons, one because I think they have a lot of decisions on players to make and also because we've seen with Derek Salvi and mine there, too. They're willing to turn the roster a little bit there Constant. It's like to me. It's a continuous improvement process, and that often means making moves with players. You might expect them toe hold onto which makes him interesting. It doesn't always necessarily produced them. Ideal results, but it makes him fascinating toe watch, too, so, But let's talk about a few of those players. We could start with boxed in to who I love and I think has still think has superstar potential and sort of had a bit of a weird year this year with barely walking with hitting for all this power, But the biggest thing to me is once again he was hurt a lot, and I just wonder what did they obviously is not going anywhere, but What do you do with a Byron Buxton? Where you know he's an M V p Type player if he could play every day, But you also have to think we can't bank on getting 150 games out of the sky. I don't know. Twins have been trying to figure out if they could make it uniform out of rubber, but seriously, they trust Techniques with bucks in and the biggest thing is him running in the walls and diving after balls and so, um, one they haven't playing deeper. It's like more than 15 ft Deeper. This year, he took Much, much deeper center field, so it cuts down the time it takes to get to the wall. So apparently he won't be supersonic speed like he normally does Right allows him gets an offensive may be gathering stuff. They want him to jump with 2 FT. More often than not bucks there had a habit of watching himself off. One leg is trying me catches Is if he works on jumping with 2 ft. He's got big chance and jumping straight up instead of into a law to little techniques take does that they've tried to get him to employ to try to avoid him also entering himself..

"Events, there's there's a lot of people sitting in front of us, and they kind of asked us questions. A lot of them are asking about the opener that is involved in baseball, which is the new the new thing. Now, they ask about the opener. They asked about hard team's gonna be they're asking about, you know, the new signings that we've had with Nelson Cruz and Johnson scope and so on. A lot of things like that though. And you don't mean the opener in terms of when the season starts when the first game as you mean when you start a relief pitcher. I right. Yeah. Yeah. So they're talking about the release. It seems to be the new craze in baseball. So that's something that people are very curious about how would you like it from the catching standpoint doesn't matter much? You know, what I like it? I think it adds an interesting aspect of the game. When you think about it? From an opposite standpoint. The third time I get through you know, my third I bat when I'm going up to face starting pitcher. And I've seen him twice already. I have a better idea of what I'm looking for. So that's kind of what it's trying to neutralizes is given the opponents a third look at a starting pitcher. What's the score dictates otherwise? But that's you know, the the batting average of the opponent goes way up the third time. They see a pitcher catcher, let's say you've got a starting pitcher traditional way. And it's the third time. And and obviously if he's still in the game he's had some success. What are you thinking? Now, you obviously, you might have got this guy out the first few times you go away from that a little bit wh-. What happens you're in the mind games when you get into that scenario when it is the third back. Well, the score dictates a lot about how we're going to pitch guys in certain situations. Just in this instance. I I think I like it because it will give you a different look at a, you know, a different guy when when the score dictates that we're we're still experimenting with. Oh, I think it's something interesting. What's going on baseball? But there's there's no way to tell if it's worthwhile or not until we get a few years down the road. You're also dealing with the concussions catchers they wash at very closely. How are you with that in in in? How is that changed even since you got in the game in terms of how they monitor that. I think they monitor it very closely. Now, they understand. Things that are going on in other sports such as football, and you know, even parts of hockey and basketball, brain injuries or serious. And this is something that teams wanted to address early. We understand that the dangers that go along with brain injuries later on in life. And I think the twins have done a good job of being conscious of that understanding that you know, brain health comes way before baseball. You know, we're we're really focused on making sure that guys are healthy once they get out of the game. And you know, it's it's interesting to see how the finances coming along with it Mitch garbage in this where I feel for you. When you go we have a concussion, especially in this day and age were so conscientious of it, and we see so many things in pardon the pun. But does it get inside your head? Where you go. Okay. I got a little headache is that the concussion. Do you have to how do you learn what's normal, and what's not normal? Once you've had a concussion. I think that's something that you learn along the way, you know, you understand what normal feels like and just being able to monitor your symptoms. Really? Well, I think sleep is very important. You understand the importance of that? And when you do get a good night's sleep. You know, how your body should feel based off, you know, maybe you don't sleep. So well, maybe it's a travel day, you get in late late dinner, all these things can affect how you feel being able to separate some of the things like that like your diet or your sleep from from your regular activity gives you a better opportunity to to realize, you know, Joe markers went through any move to first base LeVine radio the other day. And he was talking to us about would they sit harbor nineties talking about that with with Mitch they they could see him playing first base left field. Some of those things I I assume they have broach this with you as well. This is a new news. Do you think about that? At all. No. I don't think about it too much that this is something I love to catch. And that's always been my game. I think it's something that I like to do. I think it's something I'm good at. So that's what that's what I'm focusing on right now. I really like where I'm at as far as. You know in my career, receiving wise and and being able to learn pitchers in and learn the league. This is where I'm at right now. I love the catch. That's what I wanna do things progress down the road. And now I can extend my career another way, you know, I'm open to help them helping myself out wins or helping the team win. Anyway. I can't do you have a Bank where to go to keep this my last question. Why do you love to catch a lot of us? Look at it. And we say, you know, a lot of us play baseball on the way. And that's last place. You want to be on the field. Why does it catch your love to catch? What what draws you to that position? Just the action. I mean, you're in every play you have the opportunity to make an an influence both offensively and defensively. It's it's a position. That's very unique. You know, a lot of the game is dictated by you. Whether it be the pace or the the is being called in and the plays that go on throughout the game. You're very involved in that. And I think that's not a lot of guys don't get to experience with other positions. So catching is unique in that aspect mix. You get to the rubber chicken circuit and dazzling tonight and grand forest, but we appreciate it very much look forward to seeing twins versus weekend. All right. That sounds good. I'll see you guys. Are you bet Mitch Garber? Nice enough to join us from the twins caravan. I'll be out of twins fast on Friday and Sunday Friday night doing my sports show and then Sunday with shit Hartman. And Jack Morrison I will be there holding court. So we're gonna have a lot of fun over there Sunday. We'll be there on Friday and sell stop by. If you're in the neighborhood as they say, it's it's a fun. It's a fun venture twins fest because it's different than anything else that you encounter when you see players and you see. What do you call them collectibles? I guess, you know, displays things like that. Now, I gotta say the back in the Metrodome was built for that thing man, that was cool laid all on one floor, and you just walk through. You know, it's not often that craves the Metrodome when it comes to baseball. US Bank stadium is going to be in fact this year. US Bank stadium will take the place of. There. There will be no baseball player this spring because of the final four coming here. It'll be it'll be supplanted. That's what I wanted to say. I wanted to say baseball will be supplanted by the final four in the final four preparations. So you will not have the gophers playing there. You will not have the always had a smattering highschool games and a full schedule small college games, which which they will not have access to this year. So everybody's going to have to go south. When I was in college. We were the first ones I played in the first ever college baseball game at the Metrodome. And it was eight in the morning against Augsburg playing for him. When they come up with to date, they'd always my freshman year in today's they'd always gone south all these teams went south to prepare for the upcoming season. I'll college baseball teams there you go down you play a circuit you travel throughout whatever it is. And somebody said, well, why don't we just get all these teams to play the dope. So they did. And it was good. And it was a great idea. The problem was there's still too many teams for one facility that the number of teams that wanted to partake in this event. So what they had to do was start to games early. And then.

"And we're at the park joined us always by Koi provos, and Dan gladden and guys tonight game two twins kind of frittered one away last night with the late tiger comeback. But for me tonight is a lot about Jayco to Rizzi, and Danny I talk with Jake in length yesterday, and he had this sense of relief mixed with frustration frustrated that it took him this long to finally kind of figuring out find his rhythm fix what he needed to fix over the course of the year. But then optimism because he does feel like he's finally showing twins fans the pitcher that he really is. He's showing the kind of picture that we thought he was when the twin straight for him at spring training. But you know, he's won his last two. To ball ballgames. He's pitched well here at home. Picked up his first second road win last week against the same Detroit clubs. So I'm looking at him to kind of you know, continue to what he's doing last start of the season here. Go out on a good note. I still go back to that started. He had against the New York Yankees where he went seven and a third innings. No hit ball. I thought he was outstanding. You know, he started making changes guys in it happened here, August twenty four the NCAA's when he began working exclusively from the stretch, this'll be a sixth straight start in which he's going to do that again tonight or go back to last year. His best month is healthiest month with the raise September as he wraps up two thousand eighteen now it's win. The numbers are promising three stars before. Tonight is best monthly ERA right now. Three nine three also had a session with Jack Morris before the Yankees game that he was gonna pitch and it was neat to see a player in order Rizzi status right there. Come to a veteran. Jack Morrison ask him and they sat down and talk for twenty minutes. Jack, kind of gave him some few things. That's so much mechanically. But the mental part of it as to how to pitch certain guys, and what his mindset should be on the mound out there. And I think he has benefited from that. And now speaking of Jack Morris he and I were talking today, and he pointed out not only shield approval. I we lock your interest rate for up to ninety days. Then if rates go up your rate stays locked, but.

Quarterback virtually entire season. Sam. Bradford goes down to the Bridgewater goes down and keenum steps in and plays the whole season and plays really well well enough that he gets himself a contract in Denver, Nick foles. We saw Carson Wentz get his knee, busted up here, the Coliseum, and he comes in and plays really, really well for the remainder Super Bowl, MVP beats, Tom Brady, and the Super Bowl and not just, hey, I'm out here and turn around hand behind me. He sat there catching touchdown passes. I mean, it was it's an incredibly important position in a, like what you said about the fit is it's not that Sean Manion can't play quarterback in this league. Right? The question is I don't know if he can play quarterback in this offense that it's the requires a certain amount of touch. It requires a certain amount of athletic ability to get out and throw on the run things that Jared Goff has been more than capable of doing, and it requires just the understanding of all the moving parts would. Jared Goff has a good grasp of right now. I don't know if Manion does it. Just it doesn't feel like the idea, closing my eyes and picturing that little boot where he comes around and tries to hit Todd Gurley. I'm not loving that because he's gonna blow it through Todd girlies hands. He's gonna throw him a ninety. Eight mile an hour fastball from four yards away. Or if they take that away, he's not running or beating anybody to the corner and he's not sure saw that. Yeah, he's not beating anybody to the corner. He is not fleet afoot. No, no, the Rams cut another check today, another one, but not to that guy. We'll talk about it next after ESPN LA Travis Rodgers. Kirk Morrison with you this afternoon. Travis Rodgers on Twitter at curt Borsen on Twitter, right? You can fish shows, interactive man, let them know he came up with both of those on our own.

Last night's Barry Bonds jersey retirement ceremony, in, San, Francisco And when Willie Mays stepped to the, microphone and said put this man in the hall, of fame it true a large applause from the fans who had gathered they'd come. To, the game really to watch the proceedings at AT, and, t., park look I think baseball All professional sports Are about the fans who, support the sport And so you've got to think about. What it means to the fans holding up the integrity of the game is it important matter The people that support Your game you're hall, of fame your museum The, national pastime Is important to them To keep Guys like Barry Bonds out of the hall of fame So when you're a hall of fame voter Do you feel like? You're doing what's right that you're holding up Your end of things are are you Are you? Doing what Are you doing what the people? Who support baseball one, and we've seen now There's polling data? That backs this up That baseball fans What Barry Bonds in the hall of fame The polls that have been, done on this in the last few years Bonds wins and gets like seventy to eighty percent of the vote So the fans most of them not all of them but most of them No longer, have a real problem, with what bonds did So if fans don't look at steroids as an end all be all One of those things that if you do, it you're done You're thrown out of, the game If fans, don't look at it that way why should the writers Why should the writer's? Uphold this integrity clause Bonds in, this last round of hall of fame. Voting got. Fifty six percent of the vote excuse me. He needs to get up to. Seventy five so he's got four years left He's got to pick up another other nineteen percent of the voters and, he was only up three percent from last year that's not a big enough job he's going to, need, a real strong campaign and a groundswell. Of support. In the next few years or it's going. To be left to veterans committee And eventually if the committee that votes on him Is made up of his peers guys. That played with him guys who played. Against him I think they'll absolutely, vote them in if. The writers don't do it it'll take more time but I, think those that played with him in, against him what's. It becomes, their call will say wait a minute He was the best hitter that I, ever saw he was the best hitter, I pitched to He was the best. Home run hitter And I think that like the same committee, that put Alan Trammell and Jack Morrison Tried to make up for, a wrong I think I think they'll do the, same thing, for Barry Bonds. Someday but it might be ten years down the road fifteen years twenty years maybe But, he'll get there And I just don't have as big of a problem with what bonds did because I'm of the belief that it was widespread in the sport and maybe you.

"With, Tim I'm Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker. Is here to Tim I. Wanted to ask you we have talked a lot about at all about Alan Trammell and I'm, not calling you old but what? Do you remember watching or of course you probably weren't kindergarten. Or something like? That what were you what were you remember about Alan Trammell following. You're watching him play Well you know this. Time they had to stay back American League with Trammell played that any shortstop that had great carry on, his ball on his throw it, was? Called Alan Trammell Kerry meaning, didn't matter where he threw from you watch, and it was. Like, wasn't, like Sean Dunston thrown over the first but ball always got there could. Never lost its line and it always its first basement in the middle of the best and that was called Alan Trammell. Carry he was so reliable as a shortstop he was so much better hitter than, people gave. Him, credit for I believe it was. The best player on a. Championship team in nineteen eighty four and when you look at the way the game was supposed, to be played on every level? Every day there's a picture of Alan Trammell right they're not. Like this matters? But I'm told what he used to play, pick up basketball wow He was played in the. Big leagues the off-season guardsman, end line to end line in a pickup basketball game 'cause that's how Alan, Trammell attacked everything he did athletically especially baseball, and I just love the fact that he spent twenty years in major league baseball I know twenty years were with the. Same team as in the Detroit Tigers. And it's just it's just not the. Way the game is today so that's something special there are two. Modern era selections to be enshrined tomorrow the other is Jack Morrison and Morris page. Arguably the greatest game in baseball history we're talking about game seven of the nineteen Ninety-one World Series between, the twins and the Braves he, pitched? Seven are he pitched ten, innings how much of that in in that game defines his. Legacy I, think that personifies who he, was and is. And I wrote the side bar that. Night for Sports Illustrated might sidebar was on Jack fours remember Tom Kelly. The twins manager came to take him. Out in ten, in Jack, Morris was not coming out of the gate and Randy Bush of the twins Toby. After the game jacket really try to take Jack out of the gate give time to try to take him out it would have been the. First time in history. That managerless killed other mound Jack would have killed John. Kelly because he is not coming out of. That game not in the tenth inning. Of scoreless tie those pitchers don't exist anymore and I know the numbers don't always add up. For Jack Morris. ICRAF the hall of fame? I get it but fourteen opening day starts there was never The question is starting game, one or game seven of, their playoff series It was That game seven. In ninety one kinda personified exactly who. He was he was not coming out of. That game That's so interesting well you know as you know I was on the. Field with Grady little and Pedro Martinez in a similar situation and it didn't work. Out the same for us, but I played with. Trevor Hoffman in San Diego and we've talked about his fastball. We talked about his auspey especially at. Change up what made him special to you Well his competitive nature was like few others as we go as you know tied he was a shortstop in the minor leagues. He wasn't a. Very, good hitter, he could play, defense and he really throw a team May Day Dirk Biki you know I don't think you're ever going to hit you should become. A pitcher and a year later he was a pitcher and a couple of years. Later he's pitching in the, big leagues and he. Finished with six hundred one sage That change was unbelievably good especially since. At least fairly he crew so hard but the, fact that he could come out of that bullpen when hell's bells screaming in the background like that and they come out and so And so that first pitch for a change out has opposed to throw it as hard as we could I think really kind of summed up. Who Trevor Hoffman is and was he understood the competition, of the game about as well as anybody and absolutely had a flair for the. Dramatic and being out in front. Given his dad was the singing at Anaheim stadium Trevor survive a kidney. Ailment when he was young kid he proposed to his wife on one knee at halftime of a. Buffalo Bills game he's used, to being in front he's not afraid, of anything or anybody and that and that. Tremendous change there's another reason he's going to the hall of fame time out for a small public service announcement if you're. Thinking of proposing don't do it in a public place, make it private and romantic back to baseball. It's also incredibly difficult to, make the hall of fame. As a relief pitcher, because Hoffman's only the sixth to do it I went out on a gigantic limb earlier and said number seven is gonna make it next year When Mariana Ramar Rivera makes them out for. The first time I know huge huge swing there but, how Hoffman and Rivera compared to each other Well if you look at the regular season. Numbers they're pretty close I mean you could Rivera's better than anyone it's not really close. Between eighty. And, the number two reliever of all time, but you look at. The regular season. Numbers in Trevor Hoffman is fairly comparable to Mariana nobody's Marielle however what separates Mariano is his postseason numbers which are just ridiculous they're absolutely absurd he's one of the great post-season pitchers. Of all time and certainly greatest postseasons believer of all time and is greatest author was that's what separates. Mariana is what he did in October we set you up for this question in. The last segment and we didn't, get the, answer, to, it so. I'm gonna ask it again now of all of the inductees going in tomorrow Ladimir Guerrero Trevor. Hoffman Chipper Jones, Jack Morris Jim, Tony Allen Trammell who was your favorite to watch Well, I think it was Chipper Jones. So, we talked about earlier but I've always admired, the way that. His professional, career started he was on his. High school graduation party weekend when his father called and said you better get. Home the Braves wanna come talk to you so of course he went straight home and. The meet. The, pre draft meeting with the Braves took, thirty minutes Chipper did. Not have an. Agent he took the first offer that the Braves gave to him which granted was a good offer but his dad took him up stairs in Chipper you can get a lot or. Money that this precip well I know I can but I want to be the number one overall pick. I wanted to play down and I'm gonna make so much money playing this game. That I don't get it all, right away, here, and, to me. That was the consummate Chipper Jones Owns betting on. Himself knowing that is hard as this game is he was going to beat this, game that's how confident. He was in his ability and boy. Did it ever show and after that great rookie year he had he told me they Cal, Ripken gave him. A baseball coward hero of chippers.
