"That's cool. You know, Omaha, Omaha, Nebraska this time of year. I mean, you can just the humidity is just going to be awful, too. But I'm going to ask you because so many you know the drafts coming up and so many kids are going to have the decision that you probably had, and others had, which is you know, you went to Saint Francis. And then you went to U. C L. A You go pro. Do you go to college? Crystallize that that decision for us as far as how you see it, because there's lots of kids who are going to get drafted out of high school and they may go in the first couple of rounds and get a good bonus or they may not. But That argument is like, hey, if you want to be a pro baseball player, you ought to start, you know, being a pro baseball player early versus the value of the whole college experience and the college development. How hard of a decision is that for guys? Well, Larry, I think you've got to ask yourself. You know, a few different questions. Like what? You know. What do you want to what do you want to do? Right? Like like, What are we trying to accomplish? Here is the goal to be Major League baseball player, and that's the end all be all and I'm going to you know, I want to start this process ASAP. Then then, even if you do Answer that question. And the answer is yes. Then. You have to ask yourself. What's the best route to get there? And I realized that anyone would tell you, Bo. Hey, it's center pro ball in this map, Whatever. But You know what you entered professional baseball. The cost starts. And there's a certain amount of time that you're going to have. And so when you go there and you sign a special contract, you better be ready. You better be ready to play. And I could I could tell you that Look at 18 years old coming out of ST Francis, a 38 round draft pick by the Dodgers. Was I ready to go to? I think it's great falls, Montana it and start this journey. Um, to play professional? I don't know. I think I want to figure it out. I think I would be fine. But I also had a vision of part of the process, including college and going to college for at least three years, if not four years. So then, three years later. Was drafted in the fourth round by the Houston Astros. And then at that point, I had a difficult decision to make because They had signed Landsberg been with their first pick, and they didn't think Lance Berkman is going to follow on. So they Astros basically wasted all their money short changed everyone after that. They didn't sign their 2nd 3rd or fourth round pick. It's got to be one of the only teams in the history of baseball to ever do that. And so I went back to UCLA. And you know, when I made that decision, it was. I think I was. I was a lot. Um Say headier in a way where it's like, look. If I believe in my ability I do. I do believe my ability to run the question. Uh, I knew I could play in the big reach, but I also said Look, if I go play one more year. U C l A. All I'm doing is skipping out on a euro minor leagues where another year in the pack is just as good in the minor leagues. But I also knew that when I signed the clock was going to be able is going to be chicken and I was going to have a two year window to figure it out. And it didn't mean I had to get the big we went in two years. I definitely had to be on the knocking on the door of the big least. And it literally was exactly like two years from what I'd signed where I made my major league debut and It's uh but it's look everyone's different. Um, you know, I don't I think now I look at it more as like a father. Right? Where? What? What if what would you tell your kids What if your kid had a scholarship to one of these big time Smalls, Vanderbilt or Stanford or UC LA and they could go get a great education and they go play college baseball for 34 years. And what if they happen to be a really high round draft pick and you have this opportunity to go play professional baseball? Ultimately, I think it's a kid that has to make that decision and I talk it Jack lighter, for example. Jack. Later I met when he was 11 years old. And Jack lighter. I was working without MLB is where I first started there. So I followed his progress and progress and progress and progress. Old son. He's 18 years old, and he's coming out as well. The top pitching prospects in the country work I'm doing scouting reports on Jack Wider saying like this dude might be A top 10 pick. And he actually slaughtered more in that 10 to 20 range of where he actually would have ended up. I think we had like 18 or so that's remembered being like late teens and I talked. I talked out now how signed out of high school and then went on to pitch 20 years in the big leagues and his More than financially taking care of for the rest of his life. He's made some really good investments along the way as well. So money is not an issue right. It was zero issue for Jack Euro issue for Al Um And I said it doesn't matter who drafts him. I don't care if he goes number one. Overall, he's going to college. And it was like really like is that are you that passionate about? He said. Yep. He's like I am And sure enough, Jack wider with the college and his freshman year through no hitter, and now we're looking at at Jack. Potentially being the number one pick in the draft, uh, coming up and he's developed into one of the best pitchers ever in college baseball. He's he's really that good. So I just you know that's that's else perspective..

"Then what? Writer? Official way? No balls. Two strikes two outs in the ninth lion her into the wind, Mr. Wimmer. Here it is. We're gonna miss it's a no hitter for Jack wider. Commodores pour out of the third base dugout and from the bullpen. He struck out 16. And it is my pleasure to welcome to the program and man soon to be known as the second best pitcher in the lighter family from the MLB network here is Al Leiter Back with me on ESPN radio. Good morning, Al. That's good. You know what? It's funny Greeny Because now it's already started. Like you women. You're Jack letters Dad, right, So as a as a father, I love it, and it's pretty cool. I have to admit to watch your son, you know, go out and do what he's doing it. It's been so exciting for all of us, Me and the family everybody else. I can't even fathom it. He's pitching at Vanderbilt and I asked Buster only about it on TV today off the air, Just a mike check. I guess you know, Buster is so proud because he goes to Vandy, which is his alma mater. And he said, I said, you know, give me the scouting report here on the difference, and he said, maybe a little less emotional on the mound than Al Leiter was. Would you describe that isn't an appropriate on appropriate read on the situation. Yeah, that that would be 100% accurate. So greeny definitely took on my wife's personality. I was bit of a nut job out there. If you remember I had some strange, conditional level level of intensity. Had the football mentality and they play for high school football. But no Yeah, he's got He's calm. He's got a good, good routine about him. And you know it started young, right. You know, He was only five. Maybe six. My last year in the big leagues, so he vaguely remembers, but Yeah, I would say that disposition and demeanor not even close. He's got me beat by a mile. Now, let me ask you an honest question because, you know, my kids played a little tiny bit of sports, and even that I had the hardest time watching. It was excruciating for me. I'm watching my son playing au basketball when he was in seventh grade. And it was it was basically what I could do to sit there. And I'm listening to some of the parents that we yelling at referees and like I didn't even find it an enjoyable experience. I wanted to find joy in it, but I struggled to what now what is it like for your son will listen. And I don't want to overdo this. I mean, let him be his own man. But what is it like for you? You know, as can you find joy in watching it or or how do the whatever nerves and anxiety and everything else sort of factor into that. Yeah. Yeah. So you nailed it? Um, it definitely I thought I'd be good about it, cause I mean without getting into all the psycho analysis of this, But Mike, my career turned around when I met a guy by the name of Harvey Dorfman, 1991 the mental game of baseball, and he was kind of the baseball sports psychologist guy time when he didn't admit to that you needed some help between the years. On now. It's everywhere as you know with, you know, teams hiring these people to help the guys. So my thing watching him Greenie is I always just look at, you know and understand what his process programming routine is and get to that space of what his job is, and then just watch the either execution or lack of execution. So I go into a kind of in a weird way, like a loving dad to like an analyst to a code she wants to, like, help. Like I could watch anybody anywhere. I remember when I was with the Mets. The kids were little and before I go to Shea Stadium, my wife and I would have to stroll and I'll be walking through Central Park before you know, head out to shake and I see some kid throw in whatever. And I'd like I get your arm up and they look at you. You know, like Jack, Leave me alone on you know, I'm going over to say Stadium the pits, you know, so I, It's just in me, so I think When I watched my son there's always like in a good way. Not in not in like some crazy way. I promise you, it's just and then the other thing is, I keep score to keep myself busy. So that's the other part of not getting too anxious about it. So yeah, I guess there's a little bit of stuff going on there. But I love it. I don't care. He was a little kid on his travel team. He batted seventh tonight, barely pitched until high school. And I suggest you smart kid, and I said, you know, maybe baseball can get a really good school like Northwestern or You know what I e V or something like that on Ben? You know, he had progressively just got better and got stronger. And you know, when Vanderbilt came on board, he always you know that was his dream school so Yes, Greenlee. It's been great. It's been amazing. I'm happy for you. I'm happy for the whole family. And let's not go any further with that. Let's get a drop of Northwestern in there as you did The Buster Olney, right, Actually, that's that's our little back and forth there so absolutely yes. I am delighted that you chose the right school to drop it already with with with the northwestern Wildcats when I was recruited, and he was on my recruiting trip. When I was in high school when Ron Woman was the coach, so I had a choice between there and some other good schools, but didn't didn't pick it and then sign with the Yankees. The rest is history. I guess no and all seemed to work out pretty well. Let's get to some breaking moves. Breaking moves is brought to you by Lincoln Jobs. Build your winning team. Today, go to Lincoln dot com slash sports without lighter you'll see on MLB network tonight on I'll.

It's so rewarding because we play in front of a lot more people that would not have come to see is because they would not go see Atlantic's all turn event and weaken. Stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of them. We have something just as beautiful and unique to offer. If you give us the opportunity to do so, Sometimes you just have to like a really high And then once he got access to mainstream, then you can really be impactful on all those people that are looking up to you. And I think we've had that experience where people are saying, Wow, I can't believe you played in a platform with Jack Wider. You play Coachella and all these different things and you're letting a band like that makes me feel like I can do something with my life. It's just a way to get your foot in the door. And once you're in there, you know, I mean, we never deny who we are Anything like re still who we've always been.

"Signed it only twenty thousand you also are allowed to offer scholarships you know to at most basically for the T. people could finish their their college education so let's say you've got two years left the school instead of you know baseball the partial scholarships for instead of being something where you're going to get twenty five fifty percent of people left now the MLB team a long term paper you to finish your degree so that's one of the reasons you are seeing some guys signing even had some of the high school got five which seems amazing and kind of shocking to me we've had a few high school kids who have signed for twenty thousand dollars to begin the program here and then they do get cultural we have to see how many these kids say you know what I'm just going to college as opposed to you know I have a kid from Mobil oil high school down in southern cal cap Imperata who's going to Georgia tech he looks like an incredible prospect in that other kid that Vandy commit in ri keep Bradfield from Florida man he looked incredible in the Hyatt highlight reel during that draft those guys sign of those guys on on to college those guys are going to call this is normal I would say that the like the Kevin product we saw this with Tanner with there's a few guys every year I completed last year will Jack wider the year before those who are rocker now to the most probably guys in college baseball you ever hear you have high school guys who yell even prominent prospects were like no I'm gonna go to school and third they're basically they're betting on their education but they're also betting on themselves and you know because the reality is is Kumar rocker went from being a you know built a late first round pick out of high school to a guy who could be the number one pick in the draft next year well that's that's the difference between signing for two and a half three million and signing for us six to eight million so you know depending on the field and let's just all to be honest about it why are things it is the college experience being a star on the you know the star player on campus what time does the superior experience into being the star player in you know take your pick of your random low class they should be brought to do man you it's about rate you know cry no Sir yeah yeah exactly zero I don't I've always been a player's guy not just saying that because you're on the line due to and it's just it's hate hate to see this happening again I hate what's gonna happen in twenty twenty one I don't know what are your thoughts man this is it I I've been consistent on this I've been against the players being on the the public side this whole time right in in doing this but with that being said a lot of things have transpired over this time number one they're finally together it we're we're talking you know I've talked about this you know right when that happened when they signed the old seat or that the old man I mean it's only a couple years old CVA has like it was like they could care less about the future of baseball they worry more about having two chefs in the in the clubhouse and it was about you know stuff like that in a previous guys had fought for us to get to now we're seeing them fight for the in in my mind the right thing because they did you know they did get this up thing sign in in March which I think along with everyone was super pop because no one's talking about right the they just did it they went out they did nothing public and it is like certain guys if you're on that sub a committee you know like the eight guys that are on the committee would like sure is nature Miller those guys are the guys I I feel I could talk because they're invested as far as the depth of it right they understand the talks let them talk you get all these guys like you know chime in doing that that doesn't that does no good and just so you know the owner side I you know it I understand they're they're running a business too and you know they're thinking about a lot of people on this whole thing but don't put you know their negotiator was it has one Halem yes I'd like that he put it on the dam like players about the employees yeah oh by the way players want to play more games so therefore if you play more games employees would make more money exactly exactly that that just doesn't make sense and and Neil last thing on it is why don't they differ you know basically they said they can pay for like forty eight fifty games right uhhuh and the the players have been asking for more games why don't you to further that the difference in in games like look at it so I I've been running the numbers got to go to the nursery on this whole thing and Fred Russert Leicester's making twenty one point four right so it's a hundred thirty two almost a hundred thirty two won a game if you laid out well extension one sixty two okay it's so you get it down it's like six point six for six point six million for fifty games so then you got to make up the difference and what's happened in the draft order deferring money after a hundred thousand dollars they're deferring money to July first twenty twenty one July first twenty twenty two the other half so that would make it two point nine million basically two point nine one million I think is what my my math had it here yeah Sir sams identification work here then you just go half of that and then half of that after that to get to that you know seventy let's save you seventy two games right there make up twenty two game difference end up being two point nine million divided into there you go there's your payments yeah I know in it and then you look at trout trout would be making what thirty six billion this year it's a Levin million over fifty games that's not bad hello to our twenty two thousand a game that's pretty sweet you're you're looking at four point eight eight eight million dollars that they would have to make a difference on a twenty you know like it's seventy two game season two point four four million in twenty one twenty one two point four four million in twenty twenty two by the way Torkelson is gonna get paid four point one five seven million July first twenty twenty one the highest paid player in baseball is Mike trout if you did the same math he would be getting paid half of what Torkelson would sway it's also just the data that's where like I'm like going why can't you guys just exhaust everything and maybe you know the economist they could tell me I'm way off on deferred payments from like just they're gonna have the cash they will we already know the deal that they are designed so just just trying to think outside the box talking about we've been here about deferred payments right gets March contract on smart guys yeah yeah I want to launch the Bobby Bo plan you know yeah you know he's on the player and he's in the players union right he works for and he's there all the time no way late here but just a quick one on Manfred in his role in all this I think it's one of things we talk we talk to an MBA right recently as like why is it working out so well there in terms of salaries because Adams over the main yes exactly yeah yes which is when he was years out you commissioner what do you do he reached out to the players and he got a a relationship people are written about center does rob Manfred even like baseball is the new question I don't know I mean just look years ago he was negotiating against the he was the chief negotiator so he's a part of the bad blood right now so it's not like you know we're the rollers.

"Hey everybody you're right so the premise is that you know in the guitar communities we all talk a lot about gear and people we all obsess about what kind of guitar you play and the tone and tone caps and the call pickups which is all cool and all importance but recently Chris posted a cool video and I'd seen the video many times before but it's Magic Sam playing what's the Song Sam's Boogie or something he's actually playing earl hooker's which is like a like a very early seventies Yuna vox neck Les Paul Copy just like that was before the Japanese even dialed in really good copy so just kind of a probably plywood yeah and it's just this funky happy with a bolt on neck but he is just tearing it up and it sounds amazing again it was just a prime example of how a you know depending on the player you can put almost anything in their hands and it's going to sound good you know it doesn't you know and again we love good gear and quality gear I love it I love a good a good guitar part of the game but it's also cool to just think about what you can do with a a lesser lesser instrument or something in the hands of the right person you know it sounds great we posted a link to that video exam just for reference it's watching that video first of all Magic Sam is fucking awesome and I mean he's pure rock and roll and you watch this particular video too and you can see how responsible he was for so much Rock and Roll Oh yeah after I mean you just listen to what he's playing and you're like Oh the Jimmy Page Jeff back all these people and they were keeping it started with this dude he was like like I said I just think of Magic Sam is pure rock and roll just like he is that as almost like chuck various pure rock and roll yeah so videos just really great his band is great you can see the drummer has a wallet on his look back that the ring I love that I mean his like the way he's you know the syncopated l. he has in the fact that it's like his boogie just so fucking bad it's every once in a while I have to go find that video yeah I'm just remind myself why I love the guitar so much going back to what you're saying is like the saying it's the guitar player the guitar is very true in we all do well to remember that but like everything else in life it's it's kind of nuanced do you know what I mean it's like sure yes it is but I mean you can it's all about uh being inspired inspired and getting getting getting sounds that make you inspire to make you play and that saying is probably less valuable oh to people starting out because when you first start out you need any sort of edge that you can get you know what I mean I worked in Qatar shop and I got this a lot someone comes in and like holiday I want to buy a guitar for my daughter but I'm not sure if she's going to stick with it so I just WanNa buy cheapest thing I can and it's like I guarantee you she won't stick with it if you buy the cheapest thing you can be done it's going to be a piece of shit that's true you need an edge to get your roots in and like fall in love with the instrument to where you can develop a sound that becomes the player not the guitar yeah so the player and have to get tar is way better I just someone who has developed a style his able to you know I think anyways I think once you have some sort of style about your playing then you can get on any guitar you want and you can get that sound out of it but when you're just starting out the gear does matter more I think I think I think you're making a good point and I think the Abia sure to to any of these topics we come up with his lake it's this is not the rule and it's not the you know it's not to say that every cheap guitar is going to be playable you know some art some will not stay in tune some pickups may sound totally shitty but there are instruments like this bolt on copy Les Paul that are playable and in the hands of a person like Magic Sam he can just make it sound gray but I think you're right yeah I mean I think when you're younger and just starting out yeah you want to at least have an instrument that stays in tune and sounds okay if you're gonNA plug it in or if it's an acoustic if it plays tune and stuff sure but even that like I'm thinking of like a lot of old blues people or punk musicians that didn't have any money or Iraq decisions enemy and the you know the best thing they could afford was I'm thinking of like Johnny Ramone man he bought that cheap I mean part of it was he wanted an iconic guitar that was his own but we're starting out it was they were getting a stir in New York City so Lou Reed came down to watch them and he was really impressed with the band and he went up to Johnny after the show and said you guys are great but you have to get rid of that guitar and John Enrollments like fucking Mike said he went onto make his icon Dr in the movie it might get loud there's that scene where the edge and page and Jack Wider sitting around and they're talking about guitars and Jackie Eh but no there's there's so much truth to that and yes there's like very talented people who have been able to overcome really crappy guitars and get great sounds because have the drive but for your average person I'm saying like and I'm not talking about you know you need a Les Paul Custom now start out with I think we're more talking about obsessing over the gear this is another that I have experienced where I worked in a guitar shop and there's somebody come in real nice guy has is very well to do doesn't have it has a lot of right so he comes in and he picked classic telecaster like sixties telecasters this is it I want this and he takes it he buys it he comes back later and says no this isn't working for me so gets like a Les Paul Junior or something and he comes back and forth and at some point you've got to stop them and you got to say you know it's not the guitar pick any one of those guitars right and just spend some time with exile just learn the guitar and it's GonNa work for you you know people talk about tone and where it comes from and no one of the things I heard a lot is that it comes from your fingers in your hands it comes from the player and think of a lot of that is true and this kind of ties into what we're talking about like Magic Sam on that Les Paul Copy He is just like you know his fingers and him and how he's playing that instrument makes it sound so cool and that's what I totally fascinated by in terms of the individuality of players and also just applying it to like giving somebody guitar to play and being able to make some thing happened on that thing or instrument by that you know any instrument really and yeah I mean like Johnny Ramone is a great example what other examples can you come up with an example like a broad example of that that sentiment that I experienced personally was back in the eighty s when I was playing in a band with some friends it was kind of like a punk rock doc like just a Shitty punk rock man having a lot of fun and we had the opportunity to open for the cons in nineteen eighty eight or eighty nine in Ann Arbor Michigan again it's very exciting for us because we just like I said just a little local punk rock pop band and At the time we had I mean I had shitty equipment like held together with Duct Tape crappy stratocaster and our drum kit was falling apart and we got this shows great opportunity one of the catches was to play the show the touring they came over on a plane there on a shoestring they have no gear so we can open for them but they have to use our gear so we're like absolutely that's a fucking Megan's that's so let me come got up there and they sounded fucking amazing I was like night and day there's no way that are shitty gear that I'm always complaining about that was like you don't want to fuck and get your shit together play better because you can do that on that shit that you have so yeah that's a great point man and that's that's a cool experience late is just seeing other people play you know having one set of gear and then two separate bands play that gear it's.

No. And you know, this kind of this is where really the funny thing about it was technology had finally gotten to where people wanted to go and Easter. He kept pushing back. He's like to Jack wider hip hop. It you know what I'm saying? Like I don't wanna do everything digital, you know, right thirties, probably the first hip hop album recorded in pro tools. People don't know that. But at the same time, he didn't want it to sound like a digital because the more digital it is. And the more you get away from actually having to say, if there's a signing difference, so he wanted to make sure that I would still go to press off to take even if we were mixing signs in protein, you still need to dump it to two inch tape, and then go to, to press for their and ride dirty you play next to any of the album's gonna be louder fuller, musically. I dare you to put it on any put. It's put it on played at six and take that out, and well thinking, people got CD players. But that's all I am in the moment. But litter, you can play that our next album, other songs you'll realize sonically, it's different. It's clear stronger is louder than us is warm. And that's a, that's a conscious effort by as produce the warriors, the thing that always got me like k record always feels different one of..
