"Pry amendment misstatement. Not the dodger but the Robbins and it was amazing because he was originally not a catcher. He was a third baseman and first year. Berg bed at one eighty seven. Which if you don't know is terrible for baseball. But he approached his teammates and coaches with knowledge of the game. And for that reason stuck around. After season ended berg vacation abroad and sailed from new york city. His hometown to paris france. He settled in the latin district in apartment overlooking the store bone and enrolled that summer in thirty two different classes at a new at a nearby university so in his three month. Long furlough from work. Bird took classes just for fun in paris again. I can't even believe those words out loud. And i'm reading them now at then picked up his habit of reading one newspaper day every single day until berg is reading. His paper knows touch it so at birth touches paper. He would go out no matter where he was in by new one. Here throw a temper tantrum. If someone touches nuclear pore heated and bergman's get one newspaper. He get one in english. One french one. Latin one in greek and have always read newspapers to his house where it sit down and read them whenever the other and their respective native language and knock them all out. Geoffrey charles will be proud. That's by for is if he didn't know and that to me is incredible now bergh Came back to the states and he was sitting on the bench. One time in twenty seven with the white sox win the catcher on his team broke his thumb so racial was looking up and down the vent trying to find anybody who catch and basically thrust moberg in there moberg set down in turn out to be a very good offensive catcher. He had a strong arm. He was clearly brilliant as baseball. Acumen came to play there so moberg clearly serve as a niche role playing baseball now in nineteen thirty four a full ten years before world war. Two gop to full swing. Berg was invited to go on expedition to japan so the way it works is that japan was going to have three players. Bird left yo. Dual and ted lines to come visit them and teach baseball seminars. In japan. now janis baseball. Became big around the wartime. Because american servicemen. Come japan and play games at random. Japanese air force bases japanese watch these games and became obsessed with baseball. And that's what japan and baseball or hand in hand so they bonded moberg. Lefty odwalla do attend lines. Go to japan. Teach baseball to ver- cities so three players on october. Twenty second and thirty two went to meiji. Waseda rikio dodi hall say an kyle universities and they also went ahead and taught baseball tickets to the tokyo. Big six baseball league teams berg. Also seat behind tour manchuria. Shanghai pecking china indochina siam india egypt and berlin on the same trip and his teammates. I dave perish when he found out that moberg spoke. Seven languages replied. Yeah i know and you can't hit any of them so then. Moberg returned to luxembourg mississippi for spring training. Which is i think. Only an hour outside of where i live right now and japan loved moberg so much they bite him back a second time so moberg. This time went to japan with more porn players. Like babe ruth lou. Gehrig earl averill. Charlie gieringer jimmy foxx in lefty gomez to tour japan again. Second time now. This is where the story gets really interesting. During a second trip moberg.

"Rick till eight two hundred chicken wings at yo mama's house last night now back to fat boy. Oh coming up to twelve fifteen sports talk. Though there's also tottenham at goodison sweet sixteen if you like of the fa cup. I don't. I can't remember if i've ever been in february with my team in three cups. So that might end today but We'll soccer on the dock at one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play getting back to the email. I was beginning to read about the to matt's whether they they choose one or not. There are other players out there. Obviously that you would want to lock up if you just look around the big leagues and A couple of them are just obvious like fernando tatis junior if you could somehow get him on a long term deal get him through his arbor's me. The giants were very smart to get madison. Bumgarner through his arbor's for way less money than he would make in the open market and it wasn't because bumgarner was dumb is because Bumgarner was gonna get tens of millions of dollars each have missed out on another one hundred million had even a free agent but when someone puts something in front of you you know what i had carlos quentin in the studio john baker edges signed his deal with the padres and i said did you sign it because you grew up in san diego and you always wanted to be a padre and you like the direction team was gone he goes. I signed it. Because i knew my i would take care of my family for the next two. Generations signed it s. That's true right but you know. Sometimes you wanna bet on yourself like george springer And it pays off and sometimes you get put an offer out there like tim. Lynch pin was offered one hundred mil and he quote unquote only made sixty mill by turning that down so it's no secret that tees they wanna keep him forever and they were talking about it last year and even aj preller in. October said it was such a short season and such a spin to the finish. Line that. I don't think there was a lot in the middle for all that for trying to put a contract negotiation and there. We'll start to look more seriously at that this offseason and it sounds like there's interest on both sides so we'll see where that goes now well. It's almost baseball season again. But one of the things that you might say it was refreshing. That's at t's with like with the padres did not manipulated service time. Two years ago day carried him on their opening day roster and twenty nineteen which means that they have them for four more years said a five so a good news is they. Don't have to do anything with patty's he's under control through twenty twenty four. That's it the bad news is is the more and more. He plays the higher and higher. The price is gonna go. That tees just turned twenty two so if he signs some sort of extension if you give him a ten year deal right now. I mean just started right now that will take them to age thirty two and that's not a great time to be a free agent if you give him like a six year deal in other words. Hey him more than you would for these four years and give him two more years. Well now he hits the market at twenty seven when it would cash in but there was a rumor that he would be looking for a lifetime. Contract a fifteen year deal aged thirty seven. That's not going to happen. I don't think he wants it. You don't larry scott this thing but if you're looking for the best benchmark for this would probably be a guy like alex bregman because he got his for years bought out for a six year extension for one hundred million dollars with astros. That was two years ago. So you know if you think about the values of bregman sir. Free agent ears. Let's basically thirty million a piece. So if you stick to that and i mean if totti's wanted the long long long term deal could talk about somebody getting to the four hundred millions and you might say no trout and a couple of other guys. I mean like people. Yankee fans wanted them to extend labor taurus but the are pretty stingy. When it comes to extensions they did give severino. That has an extension through his. That was four for forty but the last time they did that with a guy was twelve years ago with canal set four years and thirty million but torres just turned twenty four. He's been to two all star games. he's a career. Three forty two hitter in the postseason is gonna make four years Four million dollars this year and he's also four years away so it'd be a guy obviously you want to get in. But the best player for his age and almost even pound for pound regardless of age and all of baseball's want soda and the nationals have a knack for letting big stars. Leave if you wanna look at price. Heartburn anthony ran down but he's four years away As well another guy who just turned twenty two and he better that now. He's outfielder so he's not as important defensively as tattoos but a better hitter than deputies. And what did he do last year. Oh he just hits three fifty one with thirteen home runs if you look at the players in baseball history that have had One thousand plate appearances through their age. Twenty one season. Soto is the fifth best in history. The best ever is mike trout. Second is ted williams than jimmy. Foxx then rogers hornsby and then soto is tied with ty cobb. So that means he's ahead of mickey mantle. Eddie mathews mellat a lot of not a lot of the other guys so what you have here. Is you have a young. Not just a young hall of famer. You have a young one of the great players in the history of baseball if he continues to do this. Did you hear the names. Just mentioned trout williams fox hornsby and cobb. That is what wants sotos doing. So i would lock him up You know there's gonna be some elite shortstops on the market if indoor door doesn't sign his long-term deal you know if if korea doesn't sign something if story in in colorado doesn't sign and this is something that they want to avoid an l. a. with cory seager. He's another one of those elite shortstops in a walk here. And if you think about all the money they've spent on bets and the long term extension they have to give cody bellinger which they will to walker bueller which they will they. Love gavin locks and gavin unlocks is ready to step in and being everyday shortstop but at the same time you're talking about a huge huge huge team market world champs they just splashed out on trevor bauer seeger was just mvp of the.
