"You want to tap one right there. You know the people in Jersey can bring you in a drink. Where are we working on our escape plane? Romano, speaking of Emmy Awards, is in studio, our number three, a beautiful new movie that he's written and directed and produced and he's starring in along with Lori Metcalf's Sebastian maniscalco. He's so good, man. Tony lobianco, old school. It's called somewhere in Queens. It's available in theaters coming up on Friday, April 21st season studio hour number three, but joining us right now on the phone line. In advance of the second annual invited celebrity classic nationally televised PGA tour champions competition, 78 PG or champion PGA Tour champions and 40 sports and entertainment stars that's taking place in Las colinas. You might know that TJ 'cause it's an Irving Texas where Texas stadium used to reside. It's live on the golf channel, all three days of that competition. In the field, MLB network analyst World Series champion Kevin Millar back here on the rich eyes and show, how are you, Kevin? Rick, I'm doing good, buddy. Just trying to really pray about my putting. I'm tired of the 34 to 38 putts around. So I don't know what that number is, but can you guys say a prayer right now, lord I apologize? Now we can continue. Does it matter? I'm seeing Romo and Greg Maddux in the field. You're toast, brother. You're just there et cetera. Come on. Maddox I was toast with the 85 mile an hour backdoor sinker ground ball to second base three straight double plays in baseball. I could take him in golf. Oh, Romo, I'm toast, smoke some toast. Marty fish on toast. That's right. That's the guy some toast. I don't have 8 birdies in my bag. Did that Tahoe? Kevin, you're there for entertainment for the fans who are going to be there, but behind the ropes, you're the one to take selfies with, you're the one to entertain them. That's what you're there to do that. I mean, again, I don't mean to denigrate your golf game, but if you're worried about 34 putts versus 30 putts, forget it. Forget it, you know? Don't worry about it. I've been to Clubhouse guy my whole life, right? I was not good of a ballplayer, so I was just David and Manny and killings and Pedro's teammates. So I'll take that role on to my golf career. Yeah, here's what just again, you're there to keep everyone loose. And maybe driving a run or two. Pick your spots, Kevin. You know that. Full power. Two O three one, only thing I could ambush full power. I didn't go to right center. What was it like seriously stepping into batter's box against Maddox? What was that like back in the day? You got to get off the 27 inseam stirrups with the two in ones syrups and this pants didn't go all the way down, belt buckle was a little bit crooked. You had the nerdy look with the glove up. But it was magnificent, how he could repeat his delivery and win 350 games in the big leagues. And pro down away fastball for a strike. Every time. And then as soon as he got three inches off, I need to go 6 inches off. And then you know what? Has the Florida Marlins and we're in last place Maddox glavine and smoltz were dealing with that strike zone. This day and age, I would love to see them try to bring that stuff on the plate. And how many guys do you don't see many glasses wearing individuals in Major League Baseball anymore? I don't know if it's the lasik world, the he used to do that. I think he did that to troll on people. You know what I mean? I think you did too. Because then you meet Greg now and you're around him, he's funny. He's hilarious. He's kind of exactly what you would think. Yeah. You know? Just a little dirty, a little funny, a little awesomeness, and it's Greg max, he just he's so cool sometimes he doesn't even know he's Greg max, and you know those kind of athletes are fun to be around. Nobody likes an eagle, right? Kevin Millar here in the rich eisen show. So we didn't say that to him. No, you're great. I didn't take anything personal. I called you a Clubhouse guy, moments ago, and you didn't take that personally either. We're cool. We haven't spoken in a while. I got it. And you get me. We get each other. It's all good. You don't have to apologize. We're one of those guys that just we just talk to each other and having not spoken to each other in a while. And we're cool. We just slip right back into it. So the AL east is over, right? It's done. It's finished. We're finished. Tampa based, they've taken it. That's ten in a row. It's the first time since 1987. We've got the Milwaukee Brewers. We rob deer hit 28 home runs a year to probably a few times. Dale swain, my old third base coach with the Boston Red Sox Homer in that game, Robin Yao. So it's pretty amazing. It doesn't pulmonary hit about three 50. In 1987, now you look at the raise. Why don't we give them credit? Every year they win 90 plus games, they're a pain in the you know what? Is it because we don't have the $350 million player to kind of lift up and make him the face of baseball or I don't know why, but we don't give them any credit and they are awesome. Well, Franco could be that guy, maybe. I mean, he's on a path to do that. He's got that sort of talent. One would think, I mean, the shortstop wander. It's entirely possible. I don't know. They've got the pitching. I don't know. I think it's what it is is if you play in a stadium where the ground rules are associated with the different concentric circles that hang from your ceiling. And that might be a two. Could be that. Dick Vitale. The whole thing. I don't blame it on Vitale. I don't know, but they'll just beat you in ways that you don't see coming. I mean, I know it's an Indian stammer. The guardians are like that too. They're like the kings of the bloops and blasts and without the blast. I don't know. I don't know what it is. It could just be that they're in a division with the Red Sox and Yankees. I don't know. He was a pitcher for the starting pitcher for the All-Star Game last year, right? He goes. They never saw him pitch. He didn't even know who he was. That's what the rays are about. They draft well. It goes back to David price and Eva Longoria and James shields. They help at the big league level. You can't miss on your first round draft picks. And it's so funny how organizations, the scouts are the most underrated aspect of fielding an organization, right? Because we have reports, rich eisen's got a good fastball, his curveball might be on average. He throws it in two one hitters counts. Yes. Whatever it is, that's reports from scouts that are Vance scouts and now the draft. Too many teams miss on that aspect of it and then just want to go out and buy free agents and buy the best players after ten years in and now all the teams like the rays lose these guys or the Oakland a's and all these small market teams, but they figure out a system and whether you like it or not, whether big league players like or not. You don't want to see them in the postseason because why? Owners are looking around going, why are we spending $350 million a year? And I'm looking at the race salary at close to 75 to a hundred. Right? So then you're like, what are they doing? What are they doing right? And then you go like the Red Sox hind bloom. You get anybody Freeman from the Dodgers. Anybody that's with the raise organization, it seems like there's just a tick smarter or we perceive that. There are ticks more than everybody else. Kevin Millar here on the rich eisen show, what do you think of the angels chances to finally put Otani in the playoffs? I mean, that world baseball classic showdown with Otani and trout just reminded everybody, boy, it would be great to see these two on the same team, obviously, in the playoffs, but this is also a time where if the angels don't get it done in the first half of the season, you'd have to start thinking a lot of teams are going to be throwing themselves at the angels for ohtani in advances free agent year. What do you got for me on that, Kevin? Yeah, I love Phil Nevin getting a first full year to be a manager. I think he has been in paid his dues. I think he has been awesome for this club. I think the Rendon and the offense is going to hit he's going to be back healthy and the trout in the ohtani. Okay, all of that.

"Is that fan fest this weekend looking ahead to the end of March? We're looking forward to is the absolute incredible player lineup that's going to be out there. I mean, I've been covering the Padres for as long as I can remember. I go to every single year of fan fist and I can not remember a hype quite like this and I'm sure you've seen this track. The player list of players who would be available, starting with Fernando Tatís Jr. at 9 o'clock in the morning, ending with our last interview with Xander bogarts at one 30 is rather extraordinary. I mean, you're gonna have, you've had years before. We're looking for the one star was a challenge. This year, it's loaded and they're all gonna be a petco park. Podrace said, they think they can break the Alzheimer's attendance record, which is set no four when they opened, peck to a park. First many years you've been covering the team. Yeah. What is this year, the sub coming year, mean to you? There's a real chance because the talent is legitimate and it's deep. And this roster isn't built just for this year. I'm gonna think in terms of absolutely hype and expectations, we may have to go back to age 8 brothers first season as Padres GM that would be 2015. And that of course is the first year. That's when the term rockstar jam was coined because they traded for Matt cam and Justin Upton and will middlebrooks and Derek Norris, and they signed James shields, which was interesting in itself, where they flip for tatis, but they signed James shields on the guarding the garden and Craig kimbrell. That that didn't quite pan out. It cost buddy black kids job. You know, during that season, but the expectation for this team as loaded as they are, and the fact that they're coming off, knocking off the Dodgers and the NLDS and going to play the Phillies NLCS, that's gonna take this to the, I mean, even that much higher. And I think that's part of it is last year's success. The hosting, getting finally to host the playoff games in front of fans out of the pandemic, all those things feeds into this year. It does. It's gonna be crazy. I mean, people got to experience firsthand what it feels like to experience just the buzz and the excitement. You know, going to the postseason in the COVID year in a 60 game season. I've already forgotten that. I have deleted from my memory. That is not something that any fan in San Diego talks about because it doesn't feel real. What we felt last year at

"That's great. Why are you being so weird? That's a weird decision in a crucial game between the peaches and the first place South Bend blue socks. Weird decisions. That's more about the weird decision. Obviously, Ron calls or just weirder than that. What is that mean? I don't know. Near the end of the war, he was hired by the Carolina league. He umpired in the men's minor leagues for parts of four seasons and was released midway through the 1948 season. Later that year, he began refereeing a new professional soccer league based in St. Louis where he continued to make enemies on and off the field. I don't know whether his decisions were weird or not. Wow. Weird decisions. Weird. What does that mean? I want to know what it means. Me too. Yeah. All right. Oh, I meant to say, by the way, because the Red Sox designated teeter downs for assignment, as I'm sure you saw. She was sort of the centerpiece prospect at least below major league player acquired in the Mookie betts trade. And so this led to people reflecting on the Mookie betts trade, which was not popular as it was, but the fact that it has not produced a star player and that it seeming will not produce anything for the Red Sox. In the form of teeter downs, that led to a condemnation of the trade and everyone kind of rehashing old grievances which have never completely healed understandably. I wonder if you're the Red Sox. Do you hold on to it if you're high and bloom too who's reputation? Even though he was presumably instructed to make the Mookie betts trade and had just taken that job when he made that trade, the fact that they've not gotten a superstar back and granted like there was only one year of Mookie betts left on the contract and he was not like an inexpensive player at that point, but still you gotta get someone better back if you're trading Mookie betts which you shouldn't do anyway. But I wonder whether you hold on to a player like that longer just because you know that as soon as you release them and give up, essentially, then you're kind of conceding that the trade didn't work out the way you wanted it to. Obviously it didn't because Jeter Dan said not turned into the player that they were hoping he would turn into. But as long as he's on the roster, like theoretically he could do something. And he was just in the majors very briefly in 2022. Had 14 games and didn't hit it all and looked over matched and really hasn't hit above double-A, I guess. I wonder if as a face saving move if you're like the GM whose reputation is tied to that trade. Whether you wanted it to be or not, whether you're just like, you know what? Let's give up another year. Who knows? Maybe something will click or at least we won't have a news cycle about the fact that this player didn't pan out and what that says about me. Yeah, I do wonder. I mean, I think that there is a difference when you are when you make a trade with the idea that it's really going to improve your team and then it just doesn't pan out versus you don't trade, I'm not saying anything that contradicts you or that is particularly revelatory here, but you don't trade Mookie betts even with just a year of team control left without the full buy in and at the instruction of ownership, right? And so I mean, I'm sure that I don't know how I'm bloomed but like I would imagine like what people think of him matters to him to some degree because what people think of us matters to all of us to some degree, but the most important constituency from his perspective, which is the one that is going to say, you get to continue to be the GM of the Boston Red Sox is satisfied, right? Because I think it's not controversial to assert that the monetary component of that deal seems to have been the motivation for it rather than pure talent acquisition. And so I don't know. I think it's different if you say or trading like James shields for Fernando Tatís Jr. than if you're trading Mookie bets because ownership has said we can't get this guy extended at a deal more comfortable with some moving while you can, you know, those are different things whereas you might hold on to the guy to be like no, like he can do a thing. But maybe if you hold on to those players on your roster longer, there's like more time for the comparison to unfurl. Maybe it's better to cut bait early before you're like, wow, we're really in like you're whatever of the Jeter downs experience and he's still doing this versus Mookie bets, right? Like maybe there's something to identifying that the trade has been lost and just moving on as quickly as you can. I don't know. But I think that, like I said, the constituency that matters the most in terms of bloom keeping his job is probably not like looking at that and going, I can't believe you did that. Like they were like, yeah, we told you to do that, you know? True, right. And I guess they needed a spot on the 40 man at that point too. So that was at some point that maybe matters more than what people will say about you if you have to designate him for assignment. Yeah. Maybe he'll resurrect himself somewhere else. Maybe he's claimed and we'll see. He'll win somewhere. Perhaps I'll make some of their team happy that did not trade Mookie bets for him. Which I don't want to ascribe malice again to a person I don't know, but if you're having blue, aren't you sitting there hoping this guy better be out of baseball in a year. Because if he goes, oh no, Ben, you know the worst possible outcome. Cheated dad's goes to the Dodgers. Resurrects his career because yes. Even a serviceable everyday player. And then you just like, oh, I'm really in it now. Yeah, it becomes the double play partner. Oh my gosh. I think in that case, even an ownership group that was like, please go do this might be like, we might have to move on for you, 'cause now we feel embarrassed, but recent history suggests that folks who have the resources to own sports franchises are perhaps less embarrassing than we would like them to be. Maybe not. Okay. I have a few details about the weird decisions that Charles ellenberg made. So the Kenosha news reporter wrote that umpire Charles on Berg made some weird decisions. He ejected Gladys Terry Davis, the Rockford shortstop from the first game of a double header, and then sent her to the bench in the second game for protesting it called third strike. Davis was on her way to becoming league batting champion. It was at that point that the battle tossing started, so the fans had to be appealed to by the manager to stop some bottles. On the following day, fans worked up ahead of steam over a number of umpire decisions until the 9th inning.

"Should have seen this coming. You wouldn't expect this to happen, obviously, but can you imagine the Cardinals with those two guys now? Because that's what the cardinals have been lacking in. With flaherty being injured as he has and you have Wainwright who's still great, but he's super old and so they haven't had those young, really strong homegrown top of the rotation starters lately, and that's why they've had to go get Jose Quintana or George Montgomery and that's worked out fine for them. They're doing just fine as it is, but imagine if they had an Alcantara or even just one of those guys. Wow. What a trade in retrospect. Yeah, I think that we have seen them, we saw it, as you said, we saw this trade deadline, right? So, Jack flaherty pitched the other day. I was like, oh yeah, I check flaherty. How are you? So they've had, they've had guys who have been injured, they've had guys who haven't been as effective as they've wanted them to be and, you know, it's always, who knows, who knows if gallon and a contra become who they are now if they're still on that team, like I don't say that to knock the Cardinals dev, but it's just like they've been beneficiaries of other awards and so who knows, but also, yeah, but they don't want that one back. Yeah. They're looking at it like, well, I didn't. I wasn't our best day in hindsight. It's just so it seems very hard to do trades. You know? You can have a good process. You can feel confident in your evaluations of guys and, you know, it's just, it's hard to know, especially when there is young as those guys were when they moved, so sometimes it doesn't work out. I think you're probably hoping that when you, when you balance the ledger at the end of a couple years, that you're like, you're probably aiming to be somewhat ahead. Realistically. You know, maybe you look around and you're like, oh my gosh, I know that our perception of it of him is a little bit different now, but maybe you're hoping that every trade is going to be Fernando Tatís Jr. for James shield. But I think you're realistically, you know, that's not going to be true. So you just want to be ahead. But I bet you have a couple. If you're a GM, I'm sure you have a couple where you're like, I really wish I had been sick that day, you know, or phones had gone down, or I'd seen a bear. You know, I just couldn't do it. Yeah. Right. And this is all totally in hindsight. I was looking back at some coverage of the move at the time and I don't think anyone was saying this is the worst trade ever, you know, this is going to come back to bite them. All of those prospects at the time were ranked like according to B dot com in this article, Alcantara was the 9th ranked prospect in the cardinal system. Sierra was actually the high one at 6. And then gallon was 13. So there you go, Magnus Sierra was a higher rated prospect. And gallon. You know, on some of that might be the picture ring of it all, but no one do. These weren't looked on as the biggest blue chippers ever. You might think just based on how they worked out or looking back at just Jeff Sullivan's breakdown for fan grafts. And he didn't have the entire terms at the time that he was blogging. He just knew Alcantara was the centerpiece coming back. But still, like the basic thrust of the piece was the Cardinals just traded for their new best player because the Cardinals didn't have a lot of star position players at the time. And as Jeff noted at the time of the trade, the projection for Ozuna was actually better than any other hitter who was on the Cardinals at the time. So he was like, yeah, I see why the Cardinals would want to do this. And you can see why the Cardinals would have to do it at the time. As it turned out, they didn't get the best of Ozuna. And he had a really good offensive season for the morrowinds in 2017, and then he had a really good offensive season for Atlanta in 2020 and in between. He had a couple, so for them. It was basically an average player for them with maybe better exit speeds than results. Well, and then, you know, it's hard to resist as we think about these things with the benefit of hindsight, not sort of not only superimposing what we know about these prospects who end up doing super well, but also it's hard to resist superimposing what we know about someone like Ozuna, like not only his performance on the field, but like the stuff that has happened off the field for him and his subsequent performance. So it's hard to, this is part of why being a GM is hard and then if we're going several ranks down in terms of difficulty while being an analyst, like a public facing analyst is hard, you're just doing the best you can with what you know about those guys in the moment and what you imagine them to be and then, you know, you got to call it good. Yeah, I've got a few emails. I did want to mention before we get to those. Maury wills died this year. At age 89. And it's just thinking of his career in terms of a conversation that we were having recently about the lack of stolen bases and the lack of stolen base artists in baseball now because what we need is another Murray wills really to come along and an era of low stolen bases because that's kind of what he did. I mean, he gets a lot of credit for really reintroducing re popularizing the stolen base after a long, low ebb. And as always, whatever someone says that one person in history did something or invented something or copyright something generally, there are a lot of things going on and there are other people who are doing that in their conditions that are conducive to those things happening at the time, but he was clearly the best and most notable based dealer of his era and especially early in his career because we were talking about bauman's post the other day about how John Bertie is trying to get to 40 steals and make this not the first season since 1958 that there has been no one who has 40 bases. Well, Maury wills came up in 1959, so immediately after that, it was not the absolute nadir of stolen bases, but it was quite close to it. Like earlier in the 50s was basically just low tide for so in bases. And really it had been a low tide for so in basis for 2025 years at that point because after the lively ball came in and people started hitting homers and then the rabbit ball and people were hitting for high averages too, stolen bases really fell out of Vogue and even managers and players who had played earlier in the dead ball era when stolen paces were quite popular. They stopped doing it.

"Looking at Logan Roy versus cousin Greg. Oh no. Oh boy, that's not a good matchup. And he gets the rum and Coke and he's so nervous that he's like, oh, this is a man's drink. Yes. So these guys clash in the courtroom a couple times. But the duel came about because Lucas, the younger guy, had heard a dirty little secret about Benton. Which was that he did not pay his taxes. No, I was waiting for like an affair. Nope, that's it. So he calls Benton out on this and Benton like tries to ignore him and then makes the sneering remark of I'm just going to ignore you because you're a puppy. There it is. That was fighting words. You called me the cutest thing in the world. Now I challenge you to a duel. Puppy, it's from the French word poupee, which means lapdog or actually the literal translation as doll, like a girl's Dolly. And to be called a puppy was to imply that you were not a man in control that you were being controlled by others, especially women. So it was really a slap in the face. So young Lucas challenges bent into a duel. And according to the rules, because Lucas initiated the duel, Benton got to decide on the weapons. So he picks muskets and they agree to stand 30 feet apart and they head out to bloody island. And Benton is a very good shot. And he and Lucas face off and Benton shoots him in the neck and wounds him pretty severely. You know, more than just grazes him and Lucas was bleeding pretty badly. For most duels, people would, at that point, say, I have satisfaction. We don't have to do this again. But Ben was known as kind of a hothead and he said, I don't have satisfaction. I want to meet again. So Lucas spends some time recovering from his gaping neck wound. They go back to bloody island a few weeks later. And this time, they decide to stand only ten feet apart. Benton shoots him through the chest. People don't realize how bad these wounds were back then. These were equivalent to like, well, they were. They were like musket balls. They were very nasty wounds. And so this kid is suffering, he's in his early 20s. He's lying there, and Benton comes over to him. Immediately, and is already feeling regret at what he's done. And says, you know, you're with your Friends. You'll be okay. And Lucas says to him, no, you've murdered me. But I forgive you anyway. It's so sad. It's just like, what a terrible outcome for everyone involved, you know? And I mean, the incident really stuck with Benton, you know, obviously Lucas got the shorthand in this deal, but Benton, it did weigh on him for years and years. He talked about this on his deathbed express regret one more time, but it didn't Mars reputation. Too badly because he did go on to be a senator for 30 years in the wake of all of this. So did you know, being from the area had you heard about bloody island? Is this like familiar history? I didn't know about this until this year. And the reason is probably because bloody island doesn't exist anymore. So what happened was that the river was this huge commerce route, and when these islands popped up it made it really difficult for boats to navigate getting around. So they created a bunch of dikes and dams to sort of fuse bloody island to the Illinois side of the shore. A little funny trivia fact about that is that the engineer that they called in to work on those project had just graduated from West Point and was Robert E. Lee. Oh my God. Yeah. Speaking of Robert E. Lee, do you remember the other duel with swords that I mentioned? Yeah. So the person involved in that duel was actually Robert E. Lee's nemesis, Abraham Lincoln. What? Really? Yeah, for real. It was Abraham Lincoln versus Illinois Tate auditor James shields. Oh my God. So the story behind this stool is that Lincoln wrote something minor loose scandalous about shields in the local paper. And shields challenged him to a duel. But because shields called the duel, Lincoln, got to pick the weapons. Right. And Lincoln didn't actually want to kill this guy. So instead of muskets or a pistol or whatever, he chose swords. But luckily, Lincoln and shields, I guess, had better friends than Benton and Lucas because their friends both managed to talk them out of doing this duel and it never actually took place. Thank God. But if it had taken place, it wouldn't have been on bloody island. They plan to do it on a different island, a little further upstream with a much nicer name. Sunflower island. Also, just harder to have that kind of fight on sunflower island, you know? It's like, it makes less sense. Not quite as intimidating. I mean, can you imagine think about how much history could have changed if, you know, if Abraham Lincoln got killed in a stupid duel in the middle of the Mississippi. Yeah. Or if Hamilton hadn't been killed in his dumb duel, it rarely do you feel like all that duel really worked out. But I have to say, Hannah, you know, after listening to you, tell me this story, I really am getting the feeling that you're both a scoundrel and a rascal. Oh, don't be such a puppy, Dylan. Well, that is a wild and amazing story. Thank you for telling me about the history of bloody island. Thanks, Dylan. If you want to learn more, be sure to visit Atlas obscura dot com.

Based On a True Story
"james shields" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"This episode of based on a true story was produced by me, Dan lefevre. I'd like to thank doctor Brian Dirk for sharing his expertise about the historical accuracy of 2012s Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter. If you want to learn even more about the real Abraham Lincoln, check out doctor Dirk's great books, including his most recent one. The black heavens, Lincoln, and death. As always, you can find links to his books in the show notes for this episode, as well as on the show's home on the web based on a true story podcast dot com. Okay, now it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode. And as a refresher, here are the two truths and one lie. Number one Abraham Lincoln was almost involved in a sword fight. Number two Abraham Lincoln really was a vampire hunter. Number three after his death, some drunk Irish counterfeiters tried to steal Lincoln's body. Did you find out which one is a lie? Let's start with number one. Abraham Lincoln was almost involved in a sword fight. That is true. As doctor Dirk explained, Lincoln almost had a duel with a man named James shields. And the weapon that Lincoln picked for the duel was broadswords. Even though Lincoln trained with the sword for the duel, fortunately, it didn't happen. That brings us to number two, Abraham Lincoln really was a vampire hunter. That's the lie. Despite the premise of the movie, as we learn throughout this episode, Abraham Lincoln was not a vampire hunter. Even though, as doctor Dirk pointed out, there are reviews of the movie out there asking that very question. So no, he was not a vampire hunter. That means number three is also true. After his death, some drunk Irish counterfeiters tried to steal Lincoln's body. Doctor Dirk shared the crazy story of how some drunk Irish counterfeiters in Chicago wanted to get their engraver out of jail so they thought they could steal Lincoln's body and use it as ransom to get their friend out of jail. Last, but not least, it's time now to let you know how long it took to create this episode. If you're a longtime listener to the podcast, you'll know I like to share this information. Just to help you appreciate all the podcasts that you listen to. After all, a huge majority of podcasts are like mine completely free to listen to. But that does not mean they're free to create quite the opposite. They can cost a lot of money, but almost every podcast out there even if it doesn't cost a lot of money, it costs a lot of time. The time it takes to learn the technical side to research each episode to record them to edit them and so on. But I only have the stats for my own show. So with that in mind, today's episode took me 25 hours to create and to make it clear that it's only my time. Doctor Dirk has spent years researching and gathering his expertise on Lincoln. So obviously it does not include any of that time. And to be more specific, that isn't even all of my time, because that 25 hours is only the time it took for me to produce this one episode. It does not include all the time that I spent building and maintaining the baseline a true story website, finding new guests, scheduling, and the logistics of all that, the email newsletter, social media, and all those other things that don't really have anything to do with making today's episode, but they're still required to make the podcast overall. In a nutshell, this podcast may be free to listen to, but it is not free to create. And that's why I'm so thankful for the sponsors whose ads you've heard in this episode.

"Years later, although he was just a peaceful death. You just died of disease and Illinois, so there's that. And they were taking some liberties William Johnson. Yes, did exist, but we don't think we can move him that far back. We think Lincoln met him Springfield. We don't know how. But there's that as well. But it sounds like the way that they died at least the way, according to the movie portraying almost misses Lincoln dying as much more of a shock and more of a unexpected death as opposed to they don't even show how Thomas Lincoln dies. They just, oh, he dies 9 years later, so but it sounds like in that way, at least sort of going down the right path. Yeah, they are. I mean, they really are. And sitting beside the ultimate room to remove the vampires out of the way. Yeah, I mean, that was a very traumatic experience, probably fully and although we don't have a lot of records that really tell us how he reacted. But the pussy lost his mother Quinn was very young and that had to be I get the film did a nice job of portraying just the shock and the nastiness of death on the frontier in that time.

Okay, now let's head back to today's story. Earlier, I mentioned the name Henry. It was in the opening monologue. Writing the letter to and the full name being Henry Sturgis, according to the movie, Henry is both a vampire, seeking his own revenge against other vampires. But he's also a very good friend of Abraham Lincoln, did Lincoln actually have any friends named Henry Sturgis? You know, I know. I mean, I actually look, I couldn't think of anyone of that name, so I actually went digging around in some things. My guess. And I have to see what the author was thinking, but my guess is he's kind of a composite of Soho Friends, possibly, if Lincoln's at that time, I kind of thought of mortal, actually. He was a fellow lawyer. By the way, was subject to his own movie about Lincoln. About him acting as his body. It was always very spot Lincoln. But my guess, my guess is this is a modification of lamin, who was a lifelong friend. If I had to guess. Okay, yeah, because in the movie, Henry is kind of Abe's mentor. So would he have been Lincoln's mentor in real life? Well, no, no, really. Yeah, I think the movie kind of had to make that relationship look the way it did for the vampire plot. Lincoln had men, you could call mentors. There were a couple of older men living in the village he lived in growing up that kind of gave books and wound him things and taught him things. And then there were a couple of lawyers of a circuit who had to dis mentors. So again, I guess, is that this Henry is kind of a composite of all of that. You know, men who were showing this guy but wait, that's my guess. That makes sense. Makes sense. Now, in the movie, once Henry starts training Abe to kill vampires, a picks up his weapon of choice. He says he was never good with as the movie that says, quote, shooting irons. But he was a rail splitter. So he picks up an axe. Is there any historical reason why Lincoln would pick up an axe as a weapon of choice? Well, actually, the Cuddy is. When he was a small boy, Lincoln, they were living in like a kind of a really, really trimmed of cabin in Indiana while they were establishing a Fermi quarters, and his dad and his cousin named John Hanks were watching doctor Disney was hunting. And there's a big wild church that flew by the cabin. It was just him and his mother. And I think he's really exacted, like 7 or 8. And his mom thinks, oh man, there's dinner, okay? So she hands a gun to Lincoln. He gets up and draws a bead and kills the and kills the turkey. It hits it. And we'll Lincoln actually later expressed something to the effect of. I accidentally hit the darn thing and killed it. And then he literally brags in wood its outer biographies. I've never pulled the trigger again on any such game. So that's a fairly the last time we actually shot at something why. So yeah, there's something to that. I mean, he doesn't seem to have owned any guilt that I know of. Or nor was he into that kind of shooting thing. I feel like rather plausible. He seems not to have liked hunting at all. And the one time he almost got himself into a dual is with sore. It's not good. So I can kind of see it. This is not shown in the movie at all, but how do you get into a duel with swords? I don't remember, that's toy from Lincoln. Where are the best? We can and we think this was actually very Lincoln, but wrote these really nasty political letters to a local Springfield newspaper about a guy named James speed. I'm sorry. James shields. And James shields got really mad and threatened the editor about finding out about it and we think the Lincoln stepped up to protect Mary and they got into a back and forth to the point where they were going to have to do well. I mean, they were they were that that point. And Lincoln was in the position where he got to choose the weapons and he chose broadswords. If you can imagine Abraham Lincoln was like Eric. You know, but they weren't going to do it. They were actually going to do it. I mean, Lincoln was practicing and all that and then kind of cooler hits failed it and never actually happened and Lincoln found the thing really embarrassing. And when a union officer brought it up during the war and said, mister president, what's gotten to the duel. Lincoln says somebody that voted, yeah, I need to shut up or I'm going to have a real problem here. It really bothered. You mentioned that he was training for the duel. And that kind of leads right into my next question, because we see the sequence of Lincoln training with the axe. Did he do fighting training like that? Pretty sweet too. I was like, oh, wow. You're in real life. Lincoln wasn't accomplished wrestler. A very good one. And both took the eyewitness accounts that saw me in most of the cities, very athletic. But if we go back to the movie, we mentioned him before, and Lincoln gets room with a man named speed in Springfield, in exchange for Lincoln helping around speed store. And that's where, according to the movie, Lincoln meets Mary Todd for the first time. Is that.

"A duel. Oh my gosh lincoln except the dual and he chose the broad sword as their weapon. James shields was like what the f. That's insane nevermind. Forget it and he called off the dual so lake bold move by lincoln. Lincoln's like all show up. And i'm bringing my sword to the dual. Do you wanna. Lincoln was like i'm tall. And i'm a swordsman. Yeah james shields was like never mind you know what. I'm you know what i thought about it. And i'm okay. Here's one this one really got me. I guess andrew jackson was very famous for dueling. Lots of the sky experts placed his number of duels. Maybe as many as one hundred hundred was andrew just pissing everyone off. You're just pissing everyone off. Everyone wanted to fight him. His most famous was with charles dickinson. Not to be confused with charles dickens. The right i was going to say did you see my look on my face. I was like wait. Wait what yeah. No charles dickinson. He was a horse breeder. And i guess. These two guys hated each other dickinson accused jackson of cheating on a horse bet and he challenged jackson to a duel. Jackson was like. I'll be there the weapons pistols. But here's the thing. Dickinson was like known to be one of the best shots in the nation. So i don't know why. Andrew jackson picked pistols. But he did. I think maybe it was just. I don't know some swagger something right so they show up they do all yeah dickinson. Got off the first shot. It hit andrew jackson in the chest. He's bleeding from the chest. Okay all accounts are that he like held one hand to the wound lifted his pistol fired at dickinson. His pistol misfired. It didn't shoot. Oh so andrew. Jackson re cocked his pistol fired again and killed dickinson. This was very controversial. Angela in the rules of dueling. You only get to fire once. That's what i was gonna say. Aren't you one and done. And i know nothing about dueling. But.

"What is your search history on your computer. No first of all. I would just like to say. I am not a historian. I'm just a lady with google. You're just a delightful lady that loves to google. That's right but i did read about four to five. What seemed like reputable websites on the subject of dueling mogo. And here's what i have pulled together. Okay dueling seems to have originated in medieval europe. Nobles would defend their honor in man-to-man battles will. Listen if you watch outlander. You're no that's true. I done but sassa neck come home. Well in seventeen. Seventy seven. A group of irishman codified the dueling practices. They wrote a document of rules and listen to what they called it. They called it code develo do. I'm pretty sure that's the type of desert you can get. I'll have the hello. Thank the lemon flavor. It consisted of twenty six very specific rules outlining all aspects of the dual including the time of day during which challenges could be received the number of shots or wounds required in order to win. I feel like dwight would've known these twenty-six rules of dueling because he had the forty rolls. All shrimp boys have to learn before they're five. He loves roles. I feel like dwight knows about these dueling rules. He must right. He's suggested the dual. Oh i am sure he knew. I'm sure that some of these rules have made their way into the sh- route life and the forty rules. Yes the first recorded. Do all in america took place in sixteen twenty one in the massachusetts bay colony k. And then america created their own set of dueling rules. Oh they were written by south. Carolina governor john wilson in eighteen. Thirty eight so in a typical american dual. Each party has to act through a second. I know this from the musical hamilton. Everyone your your partner. That goes with you. Yes you have your buddy that's right. Yeah yeah yeah and don't you bring like a medic like doctor. Oh that's an outlander. Never mind that was jamie jamie would bring neck with them. Okay never mind go. i don't know about that. I only read four to five websites if we have a historian. Perhaps they would know. You should watch outlander but don't watch it with your children around. Okay so listen. If a man felt like his honor had been insulted he would tell his second to challenge the offender to a duel. You do not do it yourself. You send your second. The main duty of the second is to try to create a reconciliation to avoid violence. Oh so that persons like the mediator. Yeah i mean they're literally doing what all therapists tell us not to do. Which is triangulate communication. In order to you know solve conflicts but whatever this is dueling. I'm the second and my family. I'm often the person sent in to smooth over the other stuff. I think a lot of people have that position in their family. I get it but if the second goes and said hey. Mike guy is offended by you and wants to do all and the person says great were dueling. The recipient of the dual challenge gets to pick the weapons and the time and the place of the dual so for example james shields and illinois attorney general challenged future president abraham lincoln to.

"Like pat is trying to work on another person on this defense. And i think the other leader and maybe you can even argue flat out the emotional vocal leader of this team and that is tyrod matthew and patrick mahomes came out it stamped it he basically said hey brett you need to go ahead and do what you need to do baby because i want tyra matthew on this team i need thirty to own this team and brett so to me britain and e need to go ahead and get that done you talked about last week. They need to keep making him happy. He came out and said publicly. I won't tyra matthew on this team. Which means tyrant matthew is to be on this team but is that actually the right thing to do to sign time remit. You long-term tyra. Matthew is twenty nine. He is entering dead at that age as a defensive back where you can see a drop off. Sometimes come i. I don't know what the hell happened. Patrick peterson but he just dropped a hill off. Once he hit a certain time. And that and you're approaching that with tyrod matthew so there is a concern if that is the right move. I know pat wants him right now but long-term you're talking about another three to five years. Is that actually the right move for timer met with his age and what. He brings to the table and be k. Normally i would say now now. He's a safety his age. You're you're now paying for what he's done. And you're about to start into this alex gordon type area where you're paying him and he's not ascending but he's a special he's a special intangible type of do and he brings something else to the table that if you take that apart from this team you got a problem. He brings this leadership the attitude. Everything that you want this team to be about. Like i think i've i've almost channeled him. As james shields when james shields came over for the royals and they were just they just kind of had this this arab that he came amid a kind of changed the way everybody operates a thinks. Tyra matthew to me. I felt did that for the chiefs. And i think that's worth paying for for the next couple of years. Even though that goes against what. I would normally think. But i think his intangibles make up for what his age would possibly may be his draw. You know how there certain like basketball. I think is the best way to to look at this. Certain guys at your. You can see them when they're like twenty six years old and you know man that game. That guy game is going to age poorly like russell westbrook from when i was watching him when he was like twenty six twenty seven years old. You're like man. When he gets to thirty two. This could drop off a click with cly. Yes and it's the opposite for other guys like jayson tatum. I think jason. Tatum is going to be a really good player in the league for the next fifteen years because of the way that he plays steph. Exactly really good shooters guys that just. They play the game a certain way you know. It's gonna h well. Ray allen was that way i think tyrod matthew is the latter. I think he's gonna age really well and the reason why i think that is because he plays the game he used to be the guy. That was almost entirely reliant on his athleticism now. He's all about his mind. Man you see him pointing to his head after the big plays that he makes is because he's smarter than a lot of the dudes going up and a lot of his allies value for the chiefs in versatility. He can play in the slot. He can play outside. He complained deep. He can co up into the box. You can a little bit of everything for you and that ability to do a little bit of everything going to keep him valuable. Long-term he's made the cops charles woodson. It's a good one. That's the kind of thing that he was able to do even late in his career and he played until he was thirty nine years old. I don't think he's gonna play that long. But i think you can get a few good good years out of left. The other guy that the chiefs themselves compared him to whenever they. I signed him. Was brian dawkins. Brian dawkins play late into his career as well. He played until he was thirty. Eight years old as a starting safety for the denver broncos. So i think this is a guy that they absolutely need to lock up. Long-term i kinda waffled on this over the last year or so. I think he's somebody you have to bring back it makes sense for the chiefs. He's one of their unquestioned leaders and his value on the back end is just too much to let him walk. This is normally one. I would not be about all right. He's brought to be thirty all right. Let's let's but he all of that you said he just brings something that is needed for this team and and and i would have concerned that you know man. This defense now ran free clark and increase jones. It you know. I'm a fan of their work on the field in chris. Jones is my favorite player on the chiefs. but they're they're inconsistent when it comes to just be there like you know not not you know on the field would be there as what you need. Every day. that consistent leader that they're inconsistent with it he is not in. He is something that you need and and i think what you talked about the type of way age. He is to me as always reminded me. I can't believe it is episode ford for the first time. I've said this person's name. Many people this name is synonymous with me. Kansas city is hebrew. my always thought he's played the game. Like marcus peters in terms of he just has instincts out of this world and he watches film out of this world the way that guys like work is peters did and just makes plays due to his instincts in his film work but he ends up right there to make plays Now you don't wanna have him the way that he was being screw over in the super bowl where he somehow finding himself in single coverage with guys like mike evans. Antonio brown would no help but just overtime his leadership his intangibles and his his game is going to go into a space where he still out there making plays maybe two years down the line became. He's not somebody that you're throwing in the slot. But he's but he's still able to help you in some form or fashion..

"Rick tittle the man but rick till know who the man is. And he slapped his white fanny. Thanks for that and Welcome to the show. You know it's funny. Yesterday i was talking about with the person who made a book called the astrology of pandemics nicholas snyder. He called this from brussels belgium and I brought up something on the show that i had never brought up before and that is the plague of justinian. There's a pod cast that. I love called in our time hosted by melvyn bragg from the bbc and What's the topic. You got it. The oakland coliseum now the plague of justinian so when it rains it pours sometimes with these things all right speaking of the oakland coliseum. One thing that My aides have always tried to expound. What the last two ownership groups that oakland is a small market. It's a small market team and the thing that's very frustrating is that the whole country is like well. You know oakland's a small market team. It's a very small market and they are top five in the united states. The bay area top five. There are over six million people in their market. It's ludicrous but you get why they exacerbate that that it's always a good excuse. It's something that tampa bay can do. And milwaukee and some of these other places. It's something that a lot of people have always said about san diego and you think about how they wanna couple penance. They had all star game at the murtha ninety two but they got petco park built. And oh that's nice but there are a small market team. You really could kind of say that. But they don't act like it at least not recently and especially when you think about their super duper shortstop fernando tatis junior a whopping three hundred and forty million dollar extension and it's staggering. Not just from the dollar figure because who it's coming from it's coming from the san diego padres if you look at forbes. They rank The padres as the seventeenth in value. And that's mostly because of petco park. That's right in the middle. But you talk about markets san francisco it's between philadelphia and san francisco depend on you looking either four or five. Do not san diego is the twenty ninth market the twenty ninth market that makes it one of the lowest and all of mlb and then they give a pen to two year old and have them signed for fourteen million. The previous record for contract signed by guy with two years of experience in four years of team control with ronald kenya at one hundred million. What the braves. This was three hundred and forty. I think it is a wise investment. It'll be a horrible investment if he starts distinct next year and we certainly hope that doesn't happen. I'm not even a padres fan it as don't want that to happen to the kid but it's not just one guy you know it's machado's three hundred million it's eric hosmer's one hundred and forty four million so if you look at their infield three guys have eight hundred million in contracts very close three guys in the enfield have eight hundred million in contracts and this is from the twenty ninth market and it all. It's the sort of the two point zero of the Preller aj preller revolution. Because when he came from like the rangers under dayton moore and he came to the job in two thousand fourteen he goes all right enough of this beach ball. Crap we are gonna win. And he went on and he got camp and he got just end up and he got wil myers and he got. Now melvin upton Craig cambril remember all that. And he went out and we paid all this money to get james shields on the free agent market and the padres won seventy four games and they were worse than they were the year before they fired bud black and then preller got in trouble with baseball but and twenty sixteen two years later if flipped shields to the white sox for two prospects who was the other one. I don't know but he got for not stor and then they went into reconstruction vote. This expensive failures from preller became intimate splash and trading away prospects trading away trai turner. Oh how could you do such a thing trading or a joe ross first round pick but the padres the owners there who you don't hear a lot about but it's a tandem of ron fowler. Peter seidler and they decided to look at the international market and they invested about eighty million dollars in that. But if you speak about two ts and some other youngsters like chris paddack placing both of those guys on the opening day roster and twenty thousand nine and leaving them there and burning a year of team control. Does that hurt. The totti's thing now no because he's there for his whole career basically the ideal path at some point is young core with veteran additions. Right so you've got the savvy you've got the experience but you have a future and a future that's now and so in addition to that ha's machado thai t stay went out and they got tommy pham and they got your profiler who play better than we thought he would but then some bigger names my clovinger. Even though he's hurt they went out and they threw some money at drew pomeranz but then they got a little more serious especially in this off season in the rotation yu. Darvish on blake's now. Joe musco mark melanson kiani. Keila haas young kim. Who will get to see this year the padres payroll this year will be one hundred and sixty two million dollars which is by far the highest figure in franchise history. But did you know they'll only be ninth and salary. So what i look at the as right now who has seventy four million and salary. Obviously that's less than half of the padres but the padres one hundred and sixty two barely cracks the top ten even with those sorry commitments. And if you think about players they're committed to through twenty twenty seven and more. How can they do it. In the twenty ninth market in the united states and the answer is because even on the market you have more than enough money to do this and.
