"Central Division Championship 2010 man is running away from accurate minutes. The first time I've ever seen, you waste anybody wise? That's right. I don't like Tio, I usually when the guy's poured on me, I open my mouth, see if I can get some in there. Words of wisdom right there, Right. Celebratory wisdom from Magaria. You did waste a couple bottles. Ah, partly on me on the car smelled for about a month and I was glad of it. That was a special group of guys in a special accomplishment. It didn't go the way we want in the postseason, but boy that 2010 year was with something and it's easy to look back and say What if it's John MacDonald's Ni hadn't gone where it went, and Justin is Plain as well as he ever played that season. But just that the memories of that summer the new ballpark full every night, Tomei doing Tomi things and Ah, and everybody else, Boy, That was that was a summer to remember for a long, long time growing up in Cleveland and seeing the what opening up Jacobs Field did for that community in that city. And then playing at the dome for you know, 77 years and then getting the opportunity to open a stadium. I mean, what a dream come true. And what an awesome stadium in a great city that we have. Awesome. Great phone memories of that. Ah! Like you said. It didn't end up the way he wanted to. But I mean, just just an awesome season with awesome guys. And unfortunately, you know that stuff with the way baseball is and and professional sports are. It's like At some point that ends and you don't ever think about that ending that just very fortunate. Didn't end the year before you know it at the dome, and we were able to open up that target field and have a great season. We got to see you in 11 in the Dodger uniform. And do you remember who you faced? First to target field? Well, I remember facing Could I wr and Mauer? I don't remember the order of those The the other or who the other one was, but I know that I face those two guys. Joe hit one right back at you. I believe Well, so yeah, that's that's Ah, That's a funny story. Because you know, washing Joe had about you. No balls up the middle time after time. I'm thinking. Okay, Well, this is what we're trying to do. This is how we're trying to get him out. We won in a ground ball, so Let me just make a good pitch down in a way so you can push it the other way. Well, you know, sometimes when you throw a pitch, and you come out of your hand, and maybe you don't know, but when you throw a pitch, and it's coming out your hand and you write soon that leaves your finger you go. Oh, no. And it wasn't no, no, because I thought he was going to hit it out. It was Oh, no, because I thought this is going to hit hit me in the face and He smoked it back at me and hit my glove knocked my glove off. Pick up the ball without a glove on and throw my first, So was fortunate and, Ah, like I said, almost knew was coming. I'd probably talked myself into that pitch. S so that he could get it back at me. One thing you got to do in l A was play for another childhood hero. I know you wouldn't watch Toma as a kid in Cleveland, but don Mattingly was always your guy was me. Yeah. I mean, growing up down nine. For whatever reason, you know those huge Indians fan don't remember really liking the Yankees. But for some reason, Don Mattingly was my favorite player. So you know, I remember I signed with the Dodgers. And ah, laying in bed and I get a phone call from don manually and I'm like sitting there and I'm like talking to him and get off the phone and DJs like who was that? Like? I open up my bedside drawer and I pull out this shirt from when I was 10 years old, and it's an old character character of Don Mattingly shirt. I'm like this guy. This guy just called me. What a great you know what a great experience to play for your child's Algeria. Pierrot, and I mean it was funny. We had an interaction. Ah, I can't remember 2012 or 13 1 of my last years there. Ah! Where one of the trainer said, Hey, di, you know. Ah, Matt's favorite player Growing up, was you and he goes well, I probably screwed that one up. Did not you had time with these iconic franchise is Ella than the Cubs. What? Fittingly, I think you came home to Minnesota to finish it up and I can still remember being and I want to Detroit. When you re signed in 14. You had your whole extended family there at the restaurant. And it just seemed like the right place for you to be and even more fitting the last game yet you appeared in was against Cleveland, and I think that some synergy there, we would have liked seeing a whole lot more games. But The fact that it ended in a 20 uniform against your hometown team somehow seems in retrospect, too, be a nice little way to put a bow on what was a remarkable career. Yeah. I mean, I was had the opportunity to come back and play for guardian Andi again and to people that gave me every opportunity to succeed and and no matter whether I was bad, like I wasn't away that second half of that season, they still kept giving me the ball and knew I wanted the ball and knew I wanted to be out there and In those situations, and I mean they made my career happened so to go back and have an opportunity to try to be there for some of the younger guys and try and help them out and get through some things, and also get through some stuff that I was going through my arm. It was awesome to go back and and for my family to go back, my son was able to get on the field a little bit there and and meet some of the people. That meant a lot to me and the city. That meant a lot to me. So you know, like you said, Unfortunately, that darn Indians team got me for a couple of run. It's and, ah Couldn't quite get barely get out of that inning. But they always seem to have my number. Whether it's because I was maybe turn a little hard to get those Indians out or what? But it was a kind of a unique Ah, Situation and micro obviously didn't hoped that that would end there, But it seemed like it was. It was the right time. It was such a great run that you had not bad for the pride of Shaker Heights and a guy who made every single clubhouse he ever walked into better. The second that he stepped up to his locker. Matt Guerrier again. Our conversation with Matty is brought to you by Sheboygan, Sheboygan. Then it's the ballpark as well. And until we meet again at the ballpark is sure to find out some Sheboygan quality bratwurst and sausages at home. They're always a homerun. And before we let you go, I know you're doing to coaching now with not only your son but helping out at a local school down there, too. Yes, I'm coaching diversity baseball team. Ah, school here in Birmingham and and then doing my son's eight U team this summer, and it's been It's been fun to get out on the field with with the high school kids and then a little change of pace with my son, Jax. Jack's team anyway, to get on the field a little bit now, my the way I act maybe a little bit different. I don't know if they accept that his coaches to do some of the things that we used to do to get us ready for games. But Try to keep him lucid and and realize that, you know. Half of the after the Success in baseball is to be out there enjoying yourself and to be play loose..

I wanted to ask you about the twins game last night because boiler is Eli good. He had that no hitter watching fifth inning. They got that hit and then everything fell apart. But how much does the weather play into the the wild pitching for the twins during that inning? You know, it's a it's a challenge for all players. Not just pitchers of, you know, wind cold or really the enemies of baseball. Then yet we all are aware that games to be played a schedule has to go on. So you have to deal with some adverse conditions, usually in April, and nobody likes it. Everybody has to deal with it. And sometimes you you wanna make excuses because you can it's pretty easy. Ultimately, nobody really cares. When when it's all said, what do you think of the twin so far? Well, I I haven't pressed, you know, obviously, we're starting to see the results some guys that can do things off instantly. It's good to see bucks off to a great start. At least, you know, start that makes fans really into the fact that hey, we might see something good over the course of the year, not just bits and pieces here, and there and plunk os, just you know, he's showing what he can do.

She's I can't remember what year was but all I did was so fast balls in. I think I broke seven bats at night. Me cussing. And it's like, you know, it was it was cold my hands at the end of the game. I could barely feel the ball. And then I started the first night game at Jacobs Field which is now progressive field in Cleveland back back in nineteen ninety four. And I think the start of the game was like twenty two degrees and snowing, and you know, you just you just want survive. It's all you want to try to get through the game. And they probably had a full house. Remember, they hit a nice long line of selling. Yeah. They did. It was a sell out on a night.

They're hearing it. Yeah. The way that I grew up on baseball is just hearing on the radio when it was on TV. I listened to it more than I who got you into. Dad? It was like a whole family thing. I lived I grew up in my grandparents house with my mom like RoH parents in. So they were into it. She was also into it. I got into it who were on those teams when you were a kid.

And they were like it was her dog your season, and they were like no World Series that year. Yeah. That is it wasn't even a central division champ. No year. By the way, and that is so far into the season. Like voter things are September is where the stretch run is. But at August, twelve is we have an idea. Oh, yeah. And you guys were like way out way out place such. Ninety five broke my heart because I grew up on both those teams, and that was when I was like, oh, this is what baseball is. Little heartbreak over and over and over where you heartbroken when the cubs beat you. Oh, I was England Sola where you had to go into the games or no. I went to the first two games.

Oh people. I mean, people love it. Also, they they still love that ninety five team. Like when when it was twenty guys on the field. Like they have is chip on their shoulder like especially Trevor Bauer was like real mad about it. But it's like go fuck yourself. Coming to watch you Cleveland, people have no money like.

"But he's been the next best thing. He's such a Cox has been unbelievable. Unbelievable him. Michael Bennet seems to get to the get nine sacks. A one way jolly you see what it's doing probably need surgery after it might seem locker room she's skipping around a little bit. But he's been incredibly were though. Yeah, he's a gamer and he's been very those little tiny little solar. Patsy seems to get the quarterbacks and and make big plays. And that's something. You can't you know, you can't teach next Nick foles or continue. I'll tell you this John. I think a couple of injuries are keeping Lynch's out, and they're they're they're all pro safety is really banged up. But when he was in the past couple of weeks ago and hurt himself returning that burying intersectional. But he is a tremendous piece of turnover machine. Yeah. I think what the NFL interceptions this year the bears are turnover machine. And they've been very opportunistic this year and any Jackson's kind of been the he I mean, he he's a guy right now. My defense with Khalil Mack. Jackson's going to get some votes for defensive player of the year in the NFL. That's how good he's been. And if he's limited tomorrow, it's going to really really help the eagles. I don't root for injuries. Well, I don't root for people to be in pain. But sprained ankle for day as long as you recover. Let let it be Monday, right? Excuse me abroad. Just doesn't understand it jolly. They'd have Gary. Wait excuse going to be a bears out all year warning seventeen. My prediction Spiegel's Jacobs Field all the way. And I just I just think that the Nick foles mystique continues. He doesn't help you down to turn. The key is does not turn the ball over. I was going to beat the bears and people are going to say is the Nick foles mystique like if they beat New Orleans, then then people are going to be sold to the point where I bow down to Nick foles. But I I see that particular game as a semi saying that show me if Nick foles can beat the saints. I'm in I think the whole country whether the eagle would say that. But I think he's gonna play very well today tomorrow. I don't know why keep having it hung on what it is. That's tomorrow. But it should be fun. It's gonna be fun. And I I think you know, think about half the eagles have an advantage because they've been there coaching Doug Peterson been there as a coach have been through the wars of the playoffs and the Super Bowl. That's gotta be the manager and still why are the section happy. Well, listen by that I defending Super Bowl champions because I don't believe there's more pressure on anybody. There's pressure on a team. Ben Nagy didn't want that necessarily on his team lost send him out last week. But why are the bear six? This led open at six to seven immediately went down to five and a half. But then it's crept back up. Why has the line crept back up? I don't know. I mean, I knew jelly. I'd bet the money line. I did I I bet the eagle on the money line. I think this is a field goal game. I think this line is way too. Big. I just very few games on my left speechless says to the line this this games one of them. I mean, the bears are certainly I I don't want to take anything away from them. But six and a half is an absurd line in this game. Love the eagle really high. I think it's more. It's more of a two and a half three line. That's right now in the world is what it is you're setting that would be my I would put that because I want to open a four and seeing what happened. I mean the business deserved Alabama. Yeah. The the business are to be favored and then the home field for three and the like but six and a half forbi- ski first game playoffs. You got a young team. They got a very good team. They got a rookie playoff coach. But he's been great in the regular season. Eagles have a Super Bowl tested coach teams coming around at the right time. This could be the season of teams coming around at the right time. You saw today with the colts. You saw today with the Cowboys although p Carroll helped. Are we going gonna take a quick break Brad sack? John donne sounds like the Miami. Vice? So the two thousands Murphy Brown spac is Miami. Vice coming back who is it. Philip Michael Thomas and Don Johnson and never watched that. So that much but the outfits. All right. If you wanna get in why is this line? So big. Trust me folks have been. Many my whole life. I don't understand why this line is that big, obviously, it's the public that setting it not just the line maker. Line actually went up the last two days. Eagles have Nick foles approves ribs. But there's nothing Armageddon like saying he's not gonna play. Eagles defending Super Bowl champions are playing. Well, I don't care if they're nine and seven out throw that away. You have a very good team planet a very good team on a cold day and wake me up in the fourth quarter is probably gonna come down at one play probably gonna be a lot of nerves in Chicago and here tomorrow.

"We're celebrating the twenty fifth anniversary not the outcome. Wasn't what we wanted for nothing. Twenty five years ago with Cleveland in stadium against the White Sox Indians. But the nostalgia thinking about all those memories we had as kids going down there and just having a good time. And really what transpired after that mean how magical were the Indians through the nineties. It was incredible the atmosphere with Jacobs Field and everything like that. And it was almost major league. Like, the movie came true almost took a couple years. But essentially what happened. But I. October third is probably is probably one of those days where you want to curl up in your Bonk in prison. Not want to see the next day curl up in your bug. Older flat. Boy. It was on this day twenty three years ago in nineteen ninety five when the verdict. Of one Mr. Orioles Julius Simpson. Was cleared or release not guilty. That was today. So that was a good day for them. But then or actually I shouldn't have. Well, I think about that. Maybe it wasn't no. No, no, no. Yeah. Now, probably not. I mean from maybe like five minutes, but then after that. World came crashing down. Not that Larry hadn't come crashing down. But as you TV. Do you think that verdict of when that happened because we know all the names like Johnny Cochran Shapiro, Lance Ito, all these who is the the girl. The woman darn that's irrelevant. But. Was that an event like? The Bronco the car chase where you knew where you were at that time when that was happening like do you? Remember what you were going on?

But then fast forward to. Thirteen years later. And this makes me laugh. Mamane OJ was in the wrong spot or the right spot at the wrong time the right spot at the right time.
