"With 13 time MLB all star and Hall of Famer Ken griffey junior Now unfortunately I could not be a part of this interview And I'm going to do a little bit about how the sausage is made and why I was supposed to be part of it but this interview was taped on Tuesday And as we all know that's the exact same day when all of a sudden a gunman on a Brooklyn subway started shooting up the train and people injured thank God right now nobody has died but all of a sudden as a news guy it was all hands on deck and I was part of that because obviously I wanted to talk about Jackie Robinson day with Ken griffey junior so that's why I couldn't be part of that interview But lynchi I just want to know how was it speaking with one of the best hitters of all time This really was a great interview It started off very slowly He was very measured in everything he was talking about sometimes I didn't know if he had finished his comments and Scarlett and I were ready to jump in with the next question and then he would continue And he really talked about a myriad of subjects which really were fascinating about him playing in homering in the same game with his dad back in 1990 The opportunities that he had in his dad had because of Jackie Robinson He'd be one of the people We know ever since his wife you can go back in time name four or 5 professional athletes you'd like to speak with Jackie Robinson is always at the top of my list One of the most important things since this weekend is the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking in to baseball breaking the color barrier How all 30 Major League Baseball teams came to all wear the number 42 on April 15th and right at the heart of it and the genesis of it was Ken griffey junior Jackie such a big part of our family history as far as what he did was allowing us to go out there and play and have the freedom to go out there and play to make choices He didn't do what he did who's going to be the next Jackie Robinson We don't know or if it ever happened But thank God that he did it And you know I was able to go out there and play But I called commissioner celiac and have some could I wear 42 and he said hey get in a minute I'm going to call you back And he called Rachel and then coming back the next day he said do you mind if everybody wears them I was like absolutely not The more the merrier You know 7 that's when it started and it's been that way ever since and it's unbelievable to see I look at it as something that I wanted to be selfish and do but it turned into something much greater than I anticipated Hey Ken this is Mike lynch up in Boston Loved it when you came to town with Seattle Your dad tortured us in the 75 World Series It's great to actually have a chance to talk to you When the labor negotiations and the lockout was going on it got pushed into the first week in February How much of a factor do you think that if we don't settle this thing we're going to be locked out during Jack the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier Do you think that at any push on both sides to get it done by so that players could be on the field by April 15th I think that helps Because you definitely didn't want to go into the first celebration of the year in a lockout And I think both sides were motivated to get something done And thank God that they did So we don't have to talk about it and we're going to be playing baseball for quite a few years after this I try to stay out of labor and negotiations One of the things that I said is not being a player is that hey I just want to celebrate the guys that allowed me to go out there and play freely as I did And Jackie was a big part of it Growing up The conversations that dinner table of certain things that he went through that I couldn't imagine going through So those were some of the difficult conversations as a pre teen that you learn about what that man has gone through I liked what you said earlier about how without Jackie there you couldn't have played baseball How he paved the way for black players Looking at the stats now in the 1970s black baseball players made up about a 5th 20% of the MLB That number has now dropped to about 8% today The Mariners actually have the most black players on their team as of 2020 which was about ten players Why do you think this is Why do you think the number of black players of the proportion of black players is declining in MLB I think that you look at other sports the celebration being able to be unique where in baseball if you're unique you're a problem And I think that that has to go away I.

"Tweets. All right, buster, it is time for bleacher tweets. So first up, we have Ernesto dio. In all caps, why did Roberts take Kershaw out? I get its early after short and spring, but he was only at 80 pitches through 7. At 13 strikeouts, he could have had one of the most dominant performances of all time. I feel robbed as a fan of the sport. I understand, but, you know, as I was talking about with Jess and with Ravi, Sarah, I just didn't think it was any chance he was going to have an opportunity to finish. What did you think? So there's certain things I consider my villain origin story. One of them being NFTs, the second one being roundabouts, and now Clayton Kershaw getting taken out before he got to finish a perfect game. I get it. I get it, but I'm still really butt hurt about it. You're on bitter boulevard about it. I am on bitter boulevard. And so the next one comes from Mitchell at tigers of Detroit, who were you more impressed with Wednesday. Kershaw or Vlad. Blatty. Kershaw was unbelievable, but for Vladimir Guerrero junior, he gets his hands spiked and is still go out there and hit his second and third home runs in that game. No wonder why Garrett Cole was tipping his cap toward him. Like, man, he is so good right now. He's the best hitter in baseball. I don't think there's any doubt about it. Next up, we have Calvin Harris. Hey buster, you may have seen the rapturous reception for Atlanta third base coach Ron Washington on opening night when his name was announced as part of the World Series celebration. What other position coaches are a particular fan favorite around MLB? Nobody like wash. I mean, think about washes legacy, you know, he was a player in the big leagues, but wasn't really that well known. I think the book Moneyball, when that came out, he's played such a prominent role in that and of course, when the movie came out, he was a character in that movie. And he was manager of the rangers. They make it to the World Series. They came within one David freeze, triple of winning the World Series. And all the attention he's gotten recent years for his great work with the Atlanta infielders. I don't think anybody's at that level among coaches. I think in the past, Dave Duncan would have been a guy you're going to get a lot of attention for his work with the Saint Louis Cardinals, but you don't see coaches get that type of a claim. And it's really cool because watch deserves it. Next up, we have Corey record. I'm so sorry if I mispronounced your name, Cory. What do you all think of an MLB relegation system like soccer uses? Not going to happen. You know, I've heard that Sarah and Corey have heard it too, but that would mean getting an owner to acknowledge that his team is not major league caliber and selling tickets. He becomes more problematic as you representing that's major league caliber. I mean, think about it. Their owners of teams that are tanking, willingly posting clubs with like $35 million payrolls and pretending that it's a major league product. There's no way that owners would agree to a relegation system. But it's a fair question. And lastly, we have Donald Gantz, what's up with Michael conforto? I'm not hearing anything about him. Does Scott have him overpriced? Are teams afraid of recent injury? Yeah, he's in a terrible situation. He was given a qualifying offer by the mets. He turned that down, which means he's attached to draft pick compensation. That's a problem. And then as Scott Boris agent is acknowledged, he heard his shoulder. That also is a problem. And now, if you're a team looking at him, you understand confronted is going to want a short term deal to get his value. And their teams that are not going to give up draft picks in order to make that happen. And, you know, one of the possibilities in the past would have been for a player in a situation to wait for the amateur draft to go by. And at that point, they freed themselves from draft pick compensation, but because of the change in baseball's calendar, the draft is now not till the middle of July. So he really is in a tough spot. I think the only real option for him to come back and play early this season would be if he were to agree to a really underpriced deal for one year and maybe that's the ticket he's going to have coming back. And that's it for bleacher tweets today. Be sure to submit your question using hashtag bleacher tweets and thank you so much. That's it for today. My thanks today to dusty picker just Mendoza, Paul and bikinis, Carl rabbit and Sarah, that's it for this week. And by the way, as we look ahead to our next week because my travel, we're going to have podcast next week on Tuesday,.

"He swung and missed only three times buster, he's chased only three times. And he's already got four swings in which he's generated an exit velocity of at least 100 mph. Cubs gave him a huge contract. $85 million is a lot. So we should have expected a lot, but I don't feel like much was made about them and him and spring training. I'm not so sure he's going to emerge as a superstar, but early indications are that he has a chance to be an excellent big league hitter. Right, you had a suggestion for a segment called real or fake. And so I'm going to give you three starts and you tell me if this is what they're doing early, these players is a reflection of something real or fake, like cattell Marte after slow start. I think that's going to be fake buster. I do think Marte is going to have a great season. Right now, his batting average on balls in play is under 200, despite making great contact. And I think there's a durable track record here, since 2019 is the third leading hitter in baseball with a three 15 batting average, pairs that with a 5 36 slug. And he's also steaming right now. He's like smack dab in the middle of what should be his prime. I think Marte is poised for a huge season. I'm not perturbed by what we've seen so far. I think he's going to break out and be a monster. Gavin Lux off to a great start. What do you think? So I think this is real buster. I think this is his breakout season. Let's put in context where he was and where he's arrived now because we obviously know the minor league track record was extraordinary. And he still hasn't surpassed 500 career bigly yet bats in large part because he's just stuck on the Dodgers who have an all star at practically every position. He's always sort of been a misfit on defense there too, but look they're playing him at second base where he has proven to be good. We know his struggles have mostly come in the outfield. It would not surprise me if I say mid season buster. This is an impact hitter in the middle of their order who is comfortable playing in an everyday role at second base. I believe in the talent. I think this could be his breakouts either. You agree with me that the difference between the Dodgers and just about every team except for maybe the raise is their ability to develop young players because I do, you know, they're so patient. They've done such a great job being patients with guys like Will Smith. Walker buehler at Gavin Lux, I think, would be the latest example. Their process is extraordinary. When you pair the amount of money that they can spend with the sort of shrewd team building strategy that Andrew Friedman brought over, it is an approach buster that I don't know how any team in baseball could over a period of time be better than them until something changes. There is no obvious reason to me why the Dodgers couldn't keep on this track for several more years. Their process is about as perfect as it gets and just and they can just so happen to spend as much money as they possibly want. They do as good a job as anyone in baseball of developing players as well. And look, I mean, Andrew Freeman was outstanding doing that in Tampa. Now we have three times the payroll. On Sunday Night, it looks like we're going to get you Darvish of the Padres pitching against the braves. He allowed 9 runs in two thirds the other night was at an outlier. Buster, I mean, I don't think so. Maybe to that degree it was an outlier, but I think we've seen enough now to worry that you Darvish is best days are behind him. So hashtag arbitrary endpoint here, but he made the all star team last year. But I went back and looked at the second half of a season bleeding into this season. So he's made 16 starts since the beginning of July last year. And in those 16th dark spots there, his ERA is 7.04. It's the highest ERA of any qualified pitcher during that time and also over that period of time. He owns the highest home run rate of any qualified pitcher. His breaking balls, which were once like this suite of just extraordinary swing and a mess, are no longer a weapon. The league is tagging his slider and tagging his curveball in a way that we have just not seen before. The velocity is still there. You're still seeing high strikeout totals, but you're seeing those walks creep up a little bit and you're seeing the damage done on swings to a much larger degree than before. You're not, you don't have to be nearly as defensive and even counts with you, Darvish as you used to. I think that might be a sunk cost and I don't think we're I don't think we're looking at days moving forward buster in which you Darvish resembles anything approximating in hands. It's fascinating because this week I heard that part of the discussion with darvis and tell me if based on the data that you just recite it and by the way, I want you to send it to me for our Sunday Night game. I heard this week that basically the front office saying, you got to throw your fastball more than you do. Like this whole approach of throwing the kitchen sink isn't working. And in his first start, 50% fastballs. That is so interesting, because I watched a bunch of you do ever starts in the second half of last season. And noticed this. But that whole, like you said, that whole array of sliders and curveballs and he obviously used to sit with that stuff and work as fastball off of it. The league is slugging a higher clip off of those pitches over that last sort of stretch that I described going back to July. And then his fastball, which was, which is obviously totally counterintuitive based upon, you know, years of track record and the big leagues. The Padres are looking at the same data that I am. And they're saying like, you have to pitch a little bit more traditionally because this spin, like once you sort of lose the sharpness of those pitches, obviously, you're giving hitters a greater chance to react. And you reduce your effectiveness to a great degree. Right now, you Darvish, it's pitching like you still has ace stuff. And he doesn't anymore. So he's going to have to modify his approach and do it quickly. All right, hambo. Thanks for doing this. And I'll talk to you next week. Thanks, man. Bleacher.

"Mendoza is an analyst for ESPN and Jess before we talk about Jackie Robinson day. Knowing you're interested in music, I thought this would interest you earlier in the week. We found out that our friend Sarah Abbott is named for the song Sarah by Fleetwood Mac, her sister is named for the song Amanda by Boston, and I told Sarah the other day. Like it's not even close. She got the cooler song over her older sister. What do you think? Oh, totally. I mean, I feel like Rhiannon needed to be in there somewhere too. Just throw in all the cool. That's awesome. It says a lot about Sarah's parents too. I'm all about classic rock. So Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Stevie mix is like, she's like one of my all time favorite artists ever. Okay, so you're going to be excited about that. But then you're going to be appalled by this. Sarah, before our conversation the other day in the podcast, had never looked at the lyrics of the song Sarah or listened to the song in the lyrics. How about that? What? Sarah? Defend yourself. I felt it would be narcissistic. And also, my sister, I kind of explained it a little bit. She would blast her song all the time. And so being the youngest, I'm like, I don't think I have any right to blast my song over her. But what it's like the song was about a serial killer named Sarah and you were like living your whole life, not even knowing your parents were like, maybe you have to. That was part of the fear. Okay. Okay, that makes sense. I didn't want to know. Very nice. All right. Jackie Robinson day to day. Jess, how did you find out about Jackie Robinson the first time? What do you remember how you went through that process? I grew up a Dodger fan, my favorite player of Sandy Koufax, and so that was a natural extension for me at age 8, 9 years old. What about for you? My dad. You know, he talked a lot about it's amazing. Roberto Clemente satchel page and Jackie Robinson were like three players that really, you know, he was born in 1939. So he got to see Jackie play and just the opportunity and the understanding for him being Mexican American, his family coming from Mexico, just understanding even then at a younger age, the importance of seeing color in a sport that he absolutely loves. I mean, he came from a huge baseball family. His dad and his grandfather played baseball professionally in Mexico and just how important the sport was, but then coming over to the U.S. and not seeing any color. Especially for him, even though the daughters were in Brooklyn. But as they made their way to LA, just knowing the history and the importance of Jackie Robertson, and then what that led to, because in our family Roberto Clemente was like, put on a pedestal, and then thereafter in the 80s when I was growing up, it was Fernando Valenzuela. And it all began with Jackie. And so just hearing the stories of my dad, you know, a lot of dads, I think, talk about the Mickey mantles and the Joe DiMaggio's and rightly so, but in our family, it was about Jackie Robinson. It was about satchel page, just how he'd throw a baseball and a replica mentee and what he meant to our entire community. Nice, nice. Yeah. I just love the fact that every year we have the conversation. And then that you know that there are new fans who are learning about Jackie Robinson for the first time and learning about his legacy. All right, I got a few things to run past. You show how tani last night gets lit up for the first time in his career. He allowed a home run on his split finger fastball on an O two pitch, so the 9th hitter for the Texas Rangers. And as of this morning, he has a 7 5 6 ERA and he's a one 72 batting average, and I'm sorry, but I'm attributing it directly to the shortened spring training. What about you? Yeah, I mean, definitely I think that's for sure part of it. We're seeing that even just with hitters kind of struggle out the gate and just figuring stuff out. But I mean, to me, I think Shohei Ohtani did something last year that set a standard and an expectation that is unreal. I mean, honestly, what Shohei Ohtani was able to accomplish last season. I'm not saying he can't repeat that, but I think there's also now just every time he takes the mound every time he's in the batter's box, we expect greatness beyond anything I think we've ever expected from a player. And guess what he's human? And that's what I saw I think more than anything is, you know, you're going to wake up some days and split might not be what it was yesterday and you were still working on stuff and your body might feel this way or honestly you just don't look at it. And that's okay. I think if we see this consecutively over the course of multiple starts and after we're a month and a half into the season, then it might be something different, but I think ultimately the expectation for show hands honey has never been higher..

"Old. He didn't have really have a history of injury. And that was based sort of on third time through. I don't know, buster, I hear you. It does make you wonder like, what if this was part of a 7 inning double header? And he completed the 7 innings that he had a perfect game. What's the discussion going to be like then? 80 pitches, selfishly, as a fan, a selfishly as a fan of Clayton Kershaw. I would have liked to see him go and try to complete the perfect game. Dave David Cohen brought up a great point to us and of course there'll be with Eddie and me and you on Sunday Night. When he was in that situation and was taken out, I think it was Joe Torre, who said, look, man, the only off ramp that I have is the 7th inning. If I allow you to go back out in the 8th innings and you throw 28 more pitches and you complete it without giving up a hit or a walk, I have to let you finish tonight. And then we've gone from 70 pitches, 75 pitches to a 130 digits. So that's an interesting kind of inside baseball take from a pitcher. It's my off ramp, the 7th inning. I would have liked to see him try. I would have and when we talk about this and Sunday Night, I covered that game for the times when David threw his perfect game. I've got stories from that day and that'll be a lot of fun to kick that around. All right, Carl, thanks for doing this. I'll see you at the ballpark. And I'm prepared for loud noises. You got it. I'll see you soon. Here's NBA Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson talking about getting a chance to see Jackie Robinson play. When I lived in Indianapolis, I we really wanted to see Jackie Robinson perform. And he played us against the Cincinnati reds. And it was a marvelous scene so many people there who came out to see him play. And we set out in right field. I didn't realize that particular time. That's for all the black people said in Cincinnati. I see Jackie coming to play, you know, they clean this clips off, get that bad up and we've got them at half and there, you know, and he's watching it, watching that picture and all of us for the project is ready to sort of strike them. He dropped his batting a little bit boom. He swings away. And when it gets on base, man alive, he's up and down. He's getting that picture agitated. Getting the picture nervous because he breaks a little when he stops at a picture that's not what he's going to do. And all of a sudden, he's on a second. He face was just almost unreal until a point where people try to really try to hurt him. He took the blow for everybody, and I really appreciate him doing that for me. I face some things, but not like Jackie did. I walked him to the economics class at the university of Cincinnati. Walked in the door, professors said, what the hell are you doing here? To be honest, that was so naive. I looked around at white guys on the team that we had the same time. Who is this? Does he talk to you guys? He said, he's a no, I'm talking to you. He said, I was honored. I was told to take this class. I said, you know, I got. I don't have a choice. He's waiting. You're not going to pass this class. M and F I didn't feel empowered to do anything at all. And the thing about it. And I'm playing that average in 35 points a game, man, and he's saying, what have I been able to two or three points a game? It's what I mean. You know, when I would have heard of Roscoe Robinson whatsoever. In 1965, I became the head of the player the association has this president and the first black person to do that. In 1670 the money being made by athletes, and all of a sudden the Oscar raptor move came into effect. That says, if you're a free agent, you're a right to go to other teams. You have to write to decide your own future. I understand that I was not well liked by the NBA. But when the pendulum is always up here to the left, and the owners are holding it won't let us feed back and forth. Then you're going to have those things because they want to dominate. Jacket was very outspoken. He earned the right. And I think what happened with Jack is that a lot of people, white power positions, then I think it in Florida, by the young black people. White people as well. You know, they don't like that. But I think that what he went through to be thought of and revered forever. Jessica.

Does Eric Want to Write More Children's Books in the Future?
"Do you want to write more children's books in the future? Actually, this is funny. I prefer to write more children's books in the past. Because then they would already be written and there's no work. But so I don't really want to write more children's books in the future. I want to write more children's books in the past. But you can only write about the present. I can't. You know what? That's true. But I guess the future eventually becomes the present if you wait long enough. So that's my way of dithering because the real answer is yes, I do want to write more children's books. In fact, this is kind of weird. I have written children's books in the past that have not been published. So I will be publishing some children's books in the future. I did a whole series for kids, kind of like my squanto book called the great cloud series. I have yet to publish that. I wrote the story of Saint Patrick. I wrote the story of Eric little chariots of fire. I wrote the story of Jackie Robinson, I wrote the trying to think, who else did I I'm pretty sure I just did a whole bunch. Some of the ones that I did in the 7 women and 7 men books I did as kids books. But anyway, the point is, yes, I do, and there are many other children's books that I want to write.

"Think with the media would do if Donald Trump called a black man a Negro. Violating federal law incidentally, I mean, Obama signed a law in May of 2016 banning the word. We don't use the word Negro anymore, but obviously Joe Biden does. And what the media did to provide him cover is so comical. That it bears pointing out if you probably have heard it by now. There's a lot to get to today. It's Friday. We had a busy week. We're going to head into a busy weekend. This is a big breaking news day. You're not going to want to miss a second of today's Mike Gallagher's show 'cause we have a lot of great stuff planned for you. The Kyle rittenhouse trial is going to wind down early next week as it goes to the jury. There's only one reason that this jury would convict him. And we all know what that reason would be. We'll get to that in just a moment, but first in context, here's the 46th president of the United States on Veterans Day. You know, I've adopted the attitude of the great Negro at the time picture in the Negro leagues went on to become a great pitcher in the pros and Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was satchel page. Now, we could probably assume he meant to say the great Negro league pitcher, maybe when he said that Barack Obama was clean, he didn't mean to say, like he was clean like he bathed, maybe he meant to say, has a clean record. When he said that you can go into any 7 11 and hear everybody talking with an Indian accent, maybe he didn't really mean Indian accent. I mean, you could give him a lot of, you know, cover, right? Because that's what the left does. When he said, you know, those Republicans want to put y'all back in chains. Maybe he didn't mean like literal chains, maybe even those little paper chains that our kids did in kindergarten. Because honest to goodness, the media sprung into action yesterday to defend

Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'
"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.

"A great start. So I think it'll turn around for them. They're usually at the top of the standings. You know? Statistics when it comes to pitching starting pitching, especially I just think they're after bad start. And that's why they're not averaging as many innings now. I don't know their manager as well as new machine, maybe he's more. You know, Joe more proactive pulling a guy rather than leaving him out there too long. I think Joe is known for that maybe shield is known for that as well. We'll find out over time. I've only seen him a couple of series. But I don't think they're pitching as well as you normally would expect the cardinals dip their bullpen is lights manager Miller has struggled and their bullpen has been outstanding. Yeah. And that's that's the makeup. That's why they're in first place. You can't have both combat, and that's what the cubs had those first couple of weeks. They're starting staff and their bullpen was back. You could maybe survive one being bad for while. You can't survive both of them cubs. Turn it around on the mound as well. Does Dexter Fowler. Still get a lot of love. And by the way, he's bouncing now is not playing that much. He's a platoon player at this point. But he he's had a big bounceback year here so far after being one of the worst players in baseball last year. Yeah. Kinda. Yeah. Get a warm reception. When he comes people I'm around here him and Rizzo were on the field before the game. Yeah, he'll get. He'll get the applause if he bats today or whenever he gets the plate this weekend. Yeah. Why not he was a friendly guy? Yup. To win a World Series. He's he's also missed incense that they haven't replaced him at that spot. Even though they've they're scoring runs without great leadoff production. They have since Fowler left. But it perception is sometimes reality for people. They don't see a good leadoff, man. They soon the team can't score. While cubs actually have scored without a true leadoff man over the years. But I think that's also what he kind of listen people there. They remember him as their their last good leadoff, man. So but mostly because he was just a fun Lovin. Nice guy and help that went World Series. So I wanted to get some love, you know. And he's not really a cub killer just yet. He'll turn into like he will. He's thirty. Right. Exactly. So I don't think he's he hasn't really hurt them. But you know, he's always he was always great to be around. And I know his former teammates still think highly of him. I just anything else. We should know the cubs. Actually, there was a lot of talk before the game about some of the minor leaguers. All right. So if you want an update on Carl Edwards junior he's getting they're they're not ready to bring them up. There's no rush there. Bullpens turn it around in half strikeout totals finally coming down. He's getting closer. No rush to bring them up either. So all of a sudden they're starting to look and feel a little deeper than they were a month ago. At least in terms of some of these guys that got off the bat starts and supplies to Addison Russell as well. They're not in any hurry to bring up 'cause David Bowie's. He's been great. They're great up the middle boat. He's gonna play more and more third base. You're gonna see Bryant more and more in the outfield because of the emergence of David bony. And then if the Scousers over struggles you'll move over to second. But all of a sudden they're feeling a little bit deeper than they were before just seeing the progress in Edwards in half. And it's real progress. The people I've talked to it's not just a nice little stretch Israel progress. So, but there are no rush to bring any of those those guys including Russell. So it's interesting to kind of see this team and get better as the season's gone along down in the miners as well as up here. I just have a great weekend. Talk monday. Okay. You got a senior you, buddy. All right. Jess Jesse Rogers at ESPN shy cubs on Twitter. Let's go to Jeremy and Peoria on ESPN one thousand Jeremy. Thank you digging. My college fund to have decent. Well, then I baseball back on the south side, isn't it? Yes. It's fabulous. Almost back. Love. I love having to teams that are these are good. I spun when a good for Chicago in that happened colors redundant feel feel so bad. But you're right. He can't stay healthy. Do you think this will be in in the market for someone like, I mean, balanced Tikal it apparently still gonna be? I mean, I trade deadline or arming the off season. But I didn't do the start shopping for somebody. I mean, I think you wait it out and see how close you are before you start adding to this team. I could they hang in a race around the deadline. Could they be in a wild card race? Then maybe they do go. They add something the Kyko thing is interesting. I mean that that he's still out there. Maybe we should read something into that. I mean, the teams just not valuing him at this point whatsoever. I was downcycle not have a job is it because people have seen the last couple of years aggression. He doesn't have much anymore. Maybe he put price on what he wants to play for. Nobody's gonna mansion like. Okay. Life goes on that could be and when it what point for starter more than relievers at a wash for the whole season. We're just like it just can't even get there yet. Because it's only may. But I mean, you're going to need a month to get ready, right? At least you'd think. Yeah. Started in kimbrough. Don't you think? Or maybe maybe I don't know. But we we the month. I started for anybody to think of these guys are just sitting around eating bon-bons and smoking meat. I mean, I think they're more active than you guys wanna give them credit for I know, but you still need time to ramp it up don't you don't, discreet. But if you throwing you throwing. Yeah. So I think if Rodin misses an extended period time reconquered, say whatever he wants about this doesn't do anything. See if they're in some sort of a race. It does a lot to deal. I mean like doing his coming up. Right. I mean, if the socks remain competitive if they feel good about where they are. I don't think they've got the pitching with or without road on to be honest, and you know, wouldn't mind being wrong. But I don't think they've got the pitching. But if they're in it and another month, and you know, that Rodion had go under the knife doesn't that speed things up with Dylan sees minus barring some sort of weird setback for him down in Tripoli. I would think so that's that's the move. You probably go off. They are not panicking. No, I don't know that they'd be panicking either. I mean, you plan on bringing them up at some point this year. Anyway, is a month really gonna matter. Probably not the by July you figure he'd be up. Anyhow. Three one two three three two three seven seven six Jameson Edgewater on ESPN thousand Jameson. You know, I want to do a comparison between her son and David Bowie another both in more places in their career on. I just you know, personally, I like professionalism of David Brody that that brings a lot to me as a cubs fan. I like the respectful nature of him. I do like the swag of hobby by us. But I mean, you know, Tim Anderson. There's a reference to Jackie Robinson. And you know, the N word at at home plate. We gotta start focusing on this. Thank you. All right. Well, yeah. Yes. At least not for everybody. I like the attitude. I don't mind another reference. The Jackie Robinson. In a Sports Illustrated article, he said, you know, I'm kind of like the Jackie Robinson of Myron. And I think he even knew that that means a lot. But I'm ready to accept it. I listen. Nobody had to know player today. Has to endure what Jackie Robinson, and Larry Doby and probably Willie Mays when he was real young in the early fifty and Hank Aaron when he's breaking record. Nobody had doing through that. Now are there still knuckleheads out there? Of course, two players have to deal with insensitive. Ridiculous, hate speech and comments. Yes. I mean, Carl Edwards junior was just documenting. Yes. But nobody had to endure what Jackie Robinson had to endure from his teammates from the fans from the rest of the league. Meantime, east makes a deal with branch Rickey where he wasn't allowed to ever fight back. You know, that was part of the deal deal. Yeah. I remember. Yeah. Right. Exactly. If you're going to do this. You know, what's? And I don't know how accurate the real speech was to the movie, but basically in the movie if you read some of the documentation of it as branch Rickey told. Over the years, if you have to take yes, you have to be man enough and strong enough to take it you have to be strong enough to not fight back. I mean that that's nobody will ever have to endure. What what he had to considering the air and the time and what he was trying to accomplish is. So Tim Anderson out ahead of himself a little bit. Maybe I think he's also trying to make a point. He's obviously got a little bit of a flair for the dramatic. I think he's just that's the one thing that that came naturally to him in the moment when he was talking about where he is in the game right now what he's trying to do black players do not make up a big portion of this game anymore. You know what Donald like ten percent? That's it can you. I mean ten percent. Lot of Latin flavor though in favor. Unflavored? And I and I think that's maybe what to manage was talking about. But I I think it's good for baseball as long as to manderson is good hobbies. Good for baseball because he's really good. And he's got flare. He's got style. Why got something baseball needs right now. And I think to manderson has it to just has to continue to be good. Why is it down to ten percent baseball? Why? What if they looked at? I mean baseball has never been an expensive game. No. Where have they lost? Usually the park districts have had, you know, the financing to go ahead and be able to provide the bats, you know, obviously, not gloves gloves years, but in two which to which sports that have lost participation football basketball. I'm assuming. Yeah. I don't know if there's a good answer. I mean, maybe with a little research, we can find some stories as to why they travel baseball could be travel. Baseball's at one of the the effects the cost of travel baseball. Yeah. Could be could be. Yeah. I'm not exactly sure we'll have to get hit on that bet you there's some research and some stuff out on boats called Bryant Gumbel. I'm sure he's done. Something wonderful sports has done a piece about it. They should look CC's about the has been talking about it for years the declining participation. Thank you amongst a black players black youth. You know, I was watching. Dan Roan show called on Sunday nights, the Enron show, online, forty whatever someday, no. What did you say your SRI play where three play, and they did they did a story on to the kids from the Jackie Robinson team that are now one kid is probably give me a number one draft choice next year from he plays on Mount Carmel a shortstop, right, right? Yeah. And another kid, they they said all those kids are still playing and are still probably get college scholarships. That's good. Yeah. That was the team that played from the Chatham neighborhood.

You know on Monday things they had to deal. Deal with off the field. And I think as as you grow older, there's a greater appreciation for all of that. And you can never walk in his shoes or Robinson shoes. But the more and more detailed stories that we've been able to read and be exposed to over the years about the things that they had to endure. I mean, your your level of respect and appreciation for that combination of humanity humility and the ability to do what they did with a glove or a bat or their legs.

I understand why that person has this massive ability to connect with people to appeal to people you'll see when you're around him. You'll realize he is. Is he is the beacon in the room, regardless of his physical condition. And you just wanna listen to everything he says because the wisdom that he's gained over all these years, the my interactions with him were or were earlier when bud Seelig relied on Henry, Aaron the way a brother relies on a brother. I mean, he was his guy in so many ways he would use the popularity and power of who Hank. Aaron was you know to his advantage. They were very remain. I'm sure very close friends, but he made sure Henry Aaron and all he accomplished especially in light of an I understand see leagues complicit nece in steroid era. But he he made it quite clear. There was a line of distinction. Once that was exposed that. This is the guy that we all should should recognize pay attention to honor respect and you'll see Monday, y he buy he and so many others. Feel that way. I it. It's base Paul royalty. That's what it is Carl. I would agree with you on that never really talked about this. But I always felt like for bud. Yes. It was business to protect himself wall himself off from the criticism and try to explain his own actions. But I also thought it was personal because of because of his friend Henry, no question. I mean, their relationship through the Milwaukee organization. Yeah. And perhaps you're perhaps Seelig desire to distance himself from the thing he was associated with. Instead, I'm going to associate myself and stand by my man, my man, it's almost as if they're a separate two separate entities. One is Commissioner of sport. And the other is is human being to to my guy here. And to who I who I am and Henry Aaron meant everything to, but she still does, and he was not afraid to you know, to to recognize and let everyone else know that that was what I.

So today, we welcome to the show L Britain. She's been the president and the CEO of the Jackie Robinson foundation for the last fifteen years Britain. Thank you for joining us. Thank you very much. Jeremy as we approach the centenary, what thoughts are uppermost your mind about. Jackie Robinson and his impact on the world around him. Well, you know, you said it from our perspective. Jeremy certainly you said it so accurately, which is his impact was not just so much broader than what he did on the baseball field. But you know, it's been it's been celebrated for now forty five plus years since Jackie died. But what we're excited about is telling the story beyond his baseball years. We're excited about the general public understanding that he went on to do more than. Is commonly known in terms of his impact on society at large. And what I mean by that is baseball gave Jackie Robinson a tremendous platform. Baseball was the great American pastime in nineteen forty seven through fifty five when Jackie played. And so he was very much in the body and mind and on the screens if you will of American generally, and so what Jackie did with that platform. Baseball is just such an incredible American story because he believed that he owed he owed it to the African American community he owed it to his country to use that platform that their public persona to improve society to speak out against injustices to speak out in favor of equal opportunity and economic opportunity. And so he's brought her story is. Is heroin. Not just in sports. But in everything that we as Americans celebrate about being part of the American dream. So in this centennial year the hundredth anniversary of his birth. We're excited that we will be able to at the end of this year in December specifically open. The Jackie Robinson museum, which will tell that story. It will tell the entire story of Jackie's impact in sports, and in society, generally speaking with della Britain, she is the CEO of Jackie Robinson foundation. It's it's opening in lower Manhattan at the end of this year. And Jackie Robinson would be turning one hundred years old on January thirty first the centenary of his birth. What what are the things beyond the museum della that defend Dacian does to perpetuate his message and his legacy well in nineteen seventy three less than a year after Jackie Robinson died at the young age of fifty three as you mentioned his wife. Rachel Robinson founded the Jackie Robinson foundation. And she founded on on the concept of not just perpetual. Waiting Jackie memory. But in doing something tangible something that really continued his commitment and her commitment, I might add to improving the lot of African Americans and thereby improving the the entire society. And so when she founded the Jackie Robinson foundation, it was to close the achievement gap in education, and she specifically wanted to focus on higher education. A few may know that Rachel Robinson herself Jackie Robinson's wife, who by the way is at ninety six still very much involved in the foundation. But few know that she actually got a masters degree in psychiatric nursing after she graduated from UCLA, and she very much thought that in nineteen seventy three the next bastion of success for African Americans with higher education. So she founded the Jackie Robinson foundation with the idea of providing support to highly motivate. Young people who made the Mark where were successful had achieved in high school but needed to support both financially and with regard to support with regard to how to navigate. College campuses. You might remember Jeremy that in those days, we were just beginning to see an onslaught of integration of previously white institutions on the higher education level. So it was a time. In fact, it's when I went to college it was a time when we were beginning to integrate an and and move from African Americans just being able to attend college in. I'm just starkly black colleges, and they were integrating higher institutions from the Ivy league schools to throughout you know, throughout even community colleges. So Rachel grabbed onto that sort of beginning integration on fly. Instead, let's make sure we provide for as many as we can financial support. And and a support system to these young people, they go through college speaking with della Britain, she is the present CEO of the Jackie Robinson foundation and has been for the last fifteen years who Delaware. We're coming up as we've said several times on the centenary of. I'm Jackie Robinson's birth January thirty first he would have been one hundred his last season. Major leagues was nineteen fifty six that sixty three years ago. He broke the color line in one thousand nine hundred forty seven seventy two years ago. We are losing the generation day by day. Obviously that experienced firsthand the impact of his breakthrough. And as he he feeds from living memory. What is the role of the museum in the found in the foundation in and how hard is that when when most people live weren't alive when Jackie Robinson was making such a big impact. What is the role of the foundation and its new museum opening in December to make sure that he's not forgotten. And that's absolutely where we are now, Jeremy. And in fact, I guess I'm so sick stated on the nineteen fifty five World Series win that. Yes, Jackie did go on and play in nineteen fifty-six as well as as as you point out before before the dodgers news away and before he would see was traded. But before he refused to report to the New York Giants, the the the enemy the archrival of the dodgers after the fifty-six season. Exactly. And and and interestingly. You hit the nail right on the head in terms of our continuing his legacy with the museum to make sure that not just those who did know him who did live during his time. But but those and future generations understand the impact he had particularly today with what we're going through as a nation in terms of, you know, the polarization in Washington the polarization, and and maybe even bringing to a head the racial issues that have so plagued our society that one could argue for the last few decades after the sort of advent of the civil rights movement have been kind of, you know, brewing into surface if you will bubbling under the surface. I like to look at it as a person who believes glasses are half, full, not half empty as unnecessary dialogue that at that needs to happen in our country that it's almost, you know, a good thing that, you know, our differences, and our our lack of of empathy, you know, people needs to come to the surface. So that we can we can talk them through. And and and and watch. The Jackie Robinson museum. If you will. Because that's exactly a big part of our mission with the museum to to host dialogue on social issues, particularly the issue of race relations. So that we can as a country begin to, you know, we go through the therapy that we need to go through to to understand that we really are all created equal. We really all deserve an equal opportunity those who know objections life. No, it's it's he always believed in first class citizenship for everybody not just people but for everybody. And and and also the fact that you know, we really do. We really do promote the concept of humanitarianism, generally. You know, what I think is also an important part of of of this museum is the fact that it has a backdrop and discussing these issues of somebody who whose character was just for lack of a better word unassailable. I mean, this guy I have been at the foundation for fifteen years needless to say have gotten to know, Rachel Robinson. Sharon robinson. David Robinson has two children. Very well. And and they really are a great American family. I mean, what you see in the look magazine photos that people will see when we open one of our first events of the year at the museum of the city of New York on January thirty first in the evening. We will be showcasing a group of photographs that that museum has you will see a great American family with all of the values that we all, you know, embrace and hold dear as Americans, and and that is just such a powerful role. Motto in and of itself. Jackie has incredible wife is wonderful children who've gone on to be prolific in their own. Right. Jackie and Rachel both twenty one. I think is the number of grandchildren. So, you know, this is a this is a family whose story should be told in the context of equal opportunity of we're all we're all cut from the same boss. We should all be first question date persona fi that concept. So that's what makes them so powerful. And I will say though, that from a public relations standpoint we've been able to enjoy and we actually were part of the development of the movie forty two that came out in two thousand thirteen legendary pictures and Warner Brothers released a feature film that did serve to put this legacy. You know in the in the purview of the general public who may not have been alive when Jackie Robinson. Made his Mark in baseball and went onto to be a, you know, an impactful American celebrity we also can burn just four hour documentary is to two hours is two piece to our documentary that aired on PBS, and that's available still as is the forty two movie for purchase and will be available in our in our museum shop, but but the point is along the way there have been there have been instances where Jackie's legacy was brought to light. What's the museum will be able to keep it sort of on the landscape of of of society, permanently Dila Britain is the CEO of the Jackie Robinson foundation.
