"Time champion, even longer broadcast and career 23 World Series called. I think I missed my Carver's prime as a broadcaster. People who heard him in the 80s rave about how insightful he was and Prussian. In later years, when I heard him, I was not enamored of him at the time, and yet just as with the late Joe Morgan, they formed a big part of the soundtrack of my childhood and my baseball education. So I'm grateful to them for that. They have sort of warm fond memories of them now that I might not have expected 20 plus years ago when I found them frustrating at times the late great roger angel wrote about Carver a couple of times and when mccarver was retiring from national broadcast, angel wrote Tim's intense intelligent, deeply informed, excitable verbose folksy intellectual opinionated and morally fervid participation in the events on the field inexorably takes hold of you the listener and pushes you into the adjoining seat where you can almost feel the Carver's jostling elbow and feel on your arm and elbow the heat of his eagerness for what's coming next into also added true their big cup little stretches of time when you really want to have Kim shut up and sit back. But as he also observed, he has been the exception, the strong flavor in a profession too often marked by blandness and cliche. Farewell to Tim mccarver, who in his broadcasting and his writing and other venues taught a ton of people how to watch and appreciate baseball. Also, in case you missed it, fan graphs added Negro league stats to its website this week. So I will link to where you can find those on the show page. These have already been available at seam heads and baseball reference, but to have them at fan crafts is great, didn't want to neglect that wonderful addition to the site and I do have one amendment to make to something I said earlier this week, two episodes ago, I talked about a 1937 proposal in the sporting news to use cameras to take pictures of, say, close plays at first base, and then develop them as quickly as possible, kind of like a photo finish at a racetrack. And so I was joking about having a bang bang play at first and then waiting ten to 15 minutes to develop the film so that you could get a look at whether the runner was safe or not. Well, prompted by an email from listener Peter and also some of my own research. I will note that it actually would have been possible to get those photos ready more quickly because that proposal was made, I believe, in September of 1937, and in late July of 1937, there was a historic advancement made in racetrack photo finishes, which could be what prompted that suggestion in the sporting news. Bacon Crosby, who later became co owner of the Pittsburgh pirates, was a founding partner of the del mar thoroughbred club, which operated from the del mar racetrack in del mar California, and when it opened in 1937, July 31st, it employed an innovative kind of camera, a strip camera developed by Lorenzo del riccio, who is an engineer for Paramount Pictures, which used a vertical slit that focused solely on the finish line and moved at the same speed as the horses, so you could get a clear image and also an image of the horses at the right part of the track. And in most cases, results could be determined in under a minute as a makeshift dark room was also located in the stands. So there you go, as of mid 1937, perhaps it would have been viable to use a similar method to judge umpires calls on a baseball field and get a prompt result. Under a minute, that might be faster than some replay reviews. Don't want to impugn the photographic technology of the late 1930s. Our next preview episode will feature the brewers and the Marlins, so that will lead off next week. For now, you

Well, actually, it's been closer to 20 if you include ESPN, although those were at least thankfully just an email, not on the air. Is there a way that we can make this segment work better for Todd though? Without not doing it. Yeah, no, like where he bob costume is a pretty funny joke, but maybe if he did it like I thought maybe the sports center tees would save it a little bit where he could somehow create his creativity. He's been doing that all morning on the actual sports at every other word is like some kind of play on Halloween. Yeah. But maybe you could have done that. I want him to do it really bad. The Lakers season started in the morgue, but now things are brought. No, no, no, no, no, no. The marriage. Bob costume. He weighs in on the World Series. Willie tell us the winner? I don't know. Maybe he will, but we'll find out. Maybe we won't. Maybe he could do that. Is that your Mike Greenberg impersonation? It could be anybody who's doing it. That could be anybody that's on in the morning. I don't know. You crushed that, though. Triple double for buka Dončić. It's not good either. MLB. In full swing. Joe Morgan weighs in on who he likes for. I think maybe if you do it as his sports entertains, maybe you could salvage something out of this. Possibly. Therefore, you won't stop and go, Joe Morgan, more gun. Morgan. Morgan. May he rest in peace. Rest in peace. Final hour coming up, more phone calls. No more nicknames, time. We're good. I got a bunch of others. You told me I've heard those before. We're gonna run down a list of former met. Ray nightmare, spooky Wilson. That's all coming up next. Maybe it is.

"Sense of taking care of his body and taking himself was very apparent in all the conversations. He would invite people bob Gibson came over to his house when they were, you know, after bob had thrown out of twice at the game, he didn't buy bob over to the house. Joe Morgan was a regular visitor. Any of the black players who came to San Francisco really might not go with them out to the Fairmont hotel, but they came to his place in the hung out play pool. So he very much was a connector and a mentor and I think that one of the things that I really wanted to get at and adopt is this idea of mentorship. When I first interviewed Willie, he kept using the phrase take care of. He said, you know, piper Davis took care of me. When I got to New York, Leo durocher took care of me. But by the time we get to San Francisco, I took care of I took care of Orlando. I took care of Juan. I took care of Bobby Bond and eventually that same thread connects him to Barry. So there's a strong sense of baseball as a community and passing on mentorship or even giving items away. He was famous for giving away golf clubs, giving away clothes to players, 'cause guys weren't making that much money back then. There's a great story, dusty baker tells, you know, about him first meeting Willie, liking Willie's glove, Willie gives him his glove. That was very, very typical, tons of stories of that, so I think that same sense of coming from a place Birmingham, Alabama, where there wasn't a lot of resources and people shared a lot. I think he felt the same thing in Harlem, where he was taking care of. And that was a big part. That's still a big part of his character. Now a word from our sponsor, better help. I'm not different than everybody else. Sometimes life gets really, really hard for me, and I can focus on what's wrong instead of thinking about how I can make things right by creating a solution. That can go different when your mind set is different because it can be tough

"He sort of enriches broadcasts or telecasts that he is a part of, I find more often than he does not, or even back in the day when Joe Morgan and John Miller would be unsung in a baseball and John and Joe Morgan would be spouting bait and all sorts of ridiculous things, but it would be kind of fun to listen to those two regardless. I don't really get that same sense from smoltz personally. So he says these things that are quite questionable. I don't find him to be fun for the most part just because he can't be kind of a baseball grump often and more of a get off my one. In a way that is not entertaining, I don't feel like, you know, like I could forgive some of these comments if it were like, well, I enjoy listening to these guys. It's a good banter, good interplay here, fun commentary. I didn't agree with that. This doesn't make any sense to me, but at least he's cracking jokes or he's fun to listen to and I'm not getting that so much from him. So I don't know, personal taste, I guess. I mean, if it makes you feel better, he often seems like he also hates being in the booth. All right, I noticed oddly that the angels have the second most shutouts of any team. As in times, they have been shut out. No, not that. What? I think that. Yeah, right. So the most shutouts by a pitching team this year were I'm looking at stad head here. Most games with no runs allowed in nan innings or more, the mets have done it 17 times this year. Okay, they've got some good pitching. It's a good team. The Yankees have done it 14 times, okay? They were good. Once upon a time, and then even the other teams toward the top, the twins, 13. All right, the Phillies 13, I mean, these are contenders. The White Sox 13, the Cardinals 13, the Astros 12, the Dodgers 11, the Padres 11, the Orioles ten, like all these teams are good or at least like on the fringes of contention, the angels have 16 shutouts this year as a pitching staff. I don't understand how that has happened. I mean, I guess ohtani and they just happen to have concentrated some of their good performance in the same game like they're the only not good team here. Anywhere close to this many shutouts. So I was shocked when I saw this. I am shocked. Yeah, just not a lot of significance to it. I'm just sharing my shot. Right, yeah, it doesn't really mean anything other than confusion. That's all it means being confused. Yeah, I mean, I guess they're 11th in pitching war, so I guess they're just not a terrible pitching team, even though it seems like they would be. I mean, they have ohtani, they had cinder guard. They have send of all who's good. Read detmers has been quite good of late. I mean, you know, I guess they've got some decent pictures. Just perhaps the point of this, but they're still bad. Anyway. They're so happened to notice that. Ben, they're so bad. They're quite bad. And spin rate is back, sticky stuff seems to be back, apparently. So rob Arthur just wrote about this at baseball perspective and he noted last year that after the initial crackdown and the dramatic decline in spin rate and spin to velocity ratio, there were huge changes. It seemed like, okay, the enforcement is working. Then those things started creeping back up again over the course of the second half. And so they put the stricter monitoring in place this year, right, where you're feeling people's hands instead of just patting down certain places. And yet it hasn't seemed to work because now the ratios have been to velocity and spin rate. They've crept back up to the point where it's like basically not that different from before they put the band into place in the first place. So either pitchers have somehow figured out another legal way to get a bunch more spin on the ball or they have figured out a way around the enforcement and I don't know what that is, but they have either the empires have grown wax or the pitchers have gotten better about outsmarting them and hiding whatever it is that they're using. So it seems like this stuff is back. And I don't know whether this is a coincidence or not, but offense is down quite a bit and this month, typically August is the hottest month in the hottest hitting month. And unusually, this August so far, the OPS league wide is lower than July lower than June lower than may. So weirdly what should be the offensive peak of the season has been actually a decrease to the worst offensive months since April. So that's odd and I don't know if that is why that pitchers are cheating again more and more effectively, but that's been a noticeable thing that offenses has been done this month and also this has been rates are back up again. So I don't know what to do about that. People say that just maybe having the stick ball, the pre-tax ball will help if you just legalize a certain amount of stickiness, but I don't know what's to stop pitchers from trying to add extra spin and stickiness on top of the legal amount. So maybe this can never completely go away, but it does seem that the enforcement. So not having the same effect that it did for a little while. I can't believe that the brief touch of a hand is not enough to curtail. They included as the future image for this piece of BP picture of James Karen Jack and I got to watch a fair amount of James Karen check this weekend while the he was playing against the Mariners. And he sure is in his hair a lot, Ben. Touching. Oh my God. He's a fidgety guy on the mound anyway.

"Do anything. And I remember finally sort of breaking into his inner circle and talking to his agent talking to one of his reps. And telling him, I don't care about Barry Bonds on this book. I want to do a book on Henry Aaron. Doesn't that stand on its own? And it was fascinating how they viewed themselves at that time. That the only interest that Henry Aaron could have possibly had to the public was in contrast to bonds. And I was like, you got the wrong guy for this. This is really not what I'm in for. I am here for Henry Aaron. And so we ended up having to make a deal that I wouldn't even ask any questions about Henry until after the record was broken. And so once Barry hit 7 56, then we could talk. And I told them from the jump, I didn't really have a whole lot to say on the bonds chase because he's Hank Aaron. Of course that's not going to be primary, right? And you start the book by talking about how Ricky would sometimes enter the Clubhouse and announce you know Ricky was born on Christmas Day and I was also born on Christmas Day. So I'm wondering if I should be bragging about that more often, but you also talk about the reality of that story and about him being born in the back seat of a car and it's not quite as amusing and wacky as it's often portrayed his dad was out gambling at the time and wasn't there for his family to drive them to the hospital. So that is maybe representative of the persona of Ricky the legend of Ricky, the semi mythical public understanding of Ricky. Well, in the protection of Ricky, that Ricky was very regularly very private guy, Ricky is not one of those guys who's going to share every detail of his life with you. You got to catch him on the right day when he feels like being open about certain personal details. He's really not that forthcoming about those things. And so it was really nice to hear it from him because you hear all these stories and especially when you're dealing with somebody like Ricky, it's always Ricky Henderson factor fiction. You're constantly trying to sift through whether the John olaru story is true or whether they really cash a check against and frame a check without caching it in all of the different great Ricky stories. Constantly trying to figure out what is real, what is apocryphal. And so for him to talk about his origins and for him to talk about his beginnings in Chicago and Arkansas and Oakland, I thought was really worthwhile. And it really was part of the thesis of the book. What I wanted to do in this book, and there is absolutely a connection to the last hero to the Hank Aaron book. It was the fact that whenever you talk to people in mobile about baseball, they'll talk to you about that rich mobile history, Henry, Willie mccovey, satchel page, double duty Radcliffe, and on the white side of town, Milton Frank bowling. I mean, it's got a huge baseball legacy. But then when you would ask Henry about it, he would just laugh and say, you know, something in the water. And we just create ballplayers down here. And I didn't love that. I was like, no, everybody came from somewhere. And when I'm working on Ricky, let's start tracing how these ball players got to Oakland because the Oakland and the Oakland roster and baseball in sport is incredible that you had Ricky and Lloyd Mosby and Gary Pettis and Dave Stewart, all playing in the same team as ten year olds. I mean, it's incredible. And that doesn't even include the first wave of Joe Morgan and vada pinson and Kurt flood and Frank Robinson and then of course Bill Russell. So I wanted to really dig back. It's unbelievable. I mean, it really is. It's unbelievable how many players and to find out that all these guys for the most part lived within ten blocks of each other. This is probably the greatest concentration of talent of baseball talent in any place ever. Right. And if not, I would like to see a list. And yet. But as you document it, it was not just something in the water. It was not a coincidence or an accident. It was a product of these larger forces that were pushing people in that direction. A 100%. And that's what I wanted to get at. It was like, okay, let's explore how. How did this happen? How did you get one high school with Veda Pence in current flood and Frank Robinson in the same outfield as 11th graders? I mean, how does that happen? Where's everybody from? And then when you start tracing, now you know you've got a Great Migration story. You start tracing it and you start talking about, oh, well, goodness. Bill Russell is from Monroe, Louise Ana. So is Huey Newton, founder of the black Panthers, and gee, they lived two blocks from each other in west Oakland. The same is true of the Arkansas guys. You've got Ricky from pine bluff. You've got Lloyd Mosby from Portland. You've got, you know, Paul Silas, the great basketball player. And his family from hope and then you look at the guys from Texas. Joe Morgan, Kurt flood. Frank Robinson, all from Texas, and so now you start to see that there's a bigger story here. And where they were coming from, what they were leaving and how this migration really did shape, not just Oakland, but the sports history of Oakland as well. We talk about the Great Migration and so many different ways across the country. But we never talk about it in terms of sports. How did these players get to where they live? Where are there people actually from? And it was fascinating listening to the players talk about how that took place for them. Yeah, and that's maybe the macro force that was pushing people to the Bay Area, but then there's the more micro force also on the local level of segregation, which is pushing people into the same region the same school district, et cetera. And who knows whether all those players would have gone on to become what they became if they hadn't had that crucible of the incredible competition that they faced with each other at such an early age. Yeah, a 100%. And I think that that was the piece that really sort of excited me about digging into this because I was talking to Dave Stewart about it and his family was coming from Louisiana as well. And he was saying that the nickname, what do they used to call the Bay Area at least to call it little New Orleans? Because everybody was from down there. And when you, I believe at one point, one of the statistics was just mind-blowing. It was something like in 1940 Oakland was 2.8% black by the end of by the end of the decade. It was the black population had grown something like 1600%. And 75% of 75% of the black population in Oakland was from Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas. It was a huge numbers. And so these three states created essentially the city that it is today. To return to that idea of the myth of Ricky and the things that he said and the things that he didn't say, was he an active participant in shaping that persona or that reputation or was it a product of others twisting things exaggerating things, stereotyping him, et cetera yeah, well it was certainly Ricky was not Ricky was not necessarily the architect of his own narrative by design. He led his actions speak for him. He was a player. And one of the interesting things about talking about Ricky and interviewing Ricky. He's different now, but very few people talk about the enjoying interviewing him. They love the stories. But those stories Ricky did not have a great relationship with media, so it's not as though he was constantly shaping and changing his origin story to support whatever mood he was in at that time. Like, Hank Aaron, however, did. Hank used to actually play games with media, which was horrible for historians, or just more fun to begin to sift into, but Henry would tell all kinds of stories, Henry. Where did you get those magnificent risks from him? He would say, oh, I used to haul ice in the off season. And then somebody else would ask him, and he said, oh, I used to have a job picking strawberries and so he would just make up stories.

It is a nice being back at work has turned to your knowledge as as piker land or anybody had this ben bolan character on his dude from the boston globe who ranked cincinnati thirtieth out of thirty based on the fan experience thirty thirty. Nfl cities he wrote this thirtieth cincinnati. The ribs montgomery and agree which i concur and you could stay across the river and covington across kentucky off your list of states visited. But there's not much going on downtown cincinnati. The stadium has no tailgating space and bengals games are rarely exciting. Now i have first of all. I have all of the respect in the world for people who are on the beat covering teams all the respect that is not an easy job and the people who are good at it. Provide a great service defense. Ben volunteer very good. nfl writer. But i don't know that somebody like that is qualified to rank cities based on the fan experience because when he goes to a city he's not experiencing the city and the game as a fan. He just doesn't th. There's there's nothing wrong with that. But he's like. I'm qualified good cities and enjoy it as a fan. I never been to foxborough and have no real interesting going. But if i were to go i that would be a fan experience tailgating pre and post game stuff stadium amenities for fans so. I'm not sure this dude is the most qualified to do this. But has he ever left. He's been montgomery. I love huge montgomery and fan. Thirty thousand thirty bengals games are rarely exciting. Actually i gotta be honest with you. As bad as this team has been the last couple of years for the most part. The games themselves have been pretty interesting especially at home. There's not much going on in downtown. Cincinnati that's just false. That's patently false. If you're going to write about staying across the river in covington why don't you mentioned that. There's a lot of stuff to do in covington. The stadium not having a lot of tailgating space. That's true. I mean there's compared to what it because the icon music center and a lot of construction that is taking up what used to be tailgating space. But they're still ample room for tailgating. Longworth hall is not officially a paul brown stadium tailgating lot. But that's the lot to tailgate it and there are still plenty of places if you're visiting fan and you drive and you want to tailgate and let's face it if you're coming from boston. Chances are you're not tailgating. You flew in but if you want to get in cincinnati cam has anybody gotten dude on and like i just want to ask like how many times has he been in cincinnati and he ever left his hotel room to go anywhere besides the montgomery in then internet villain taryn. We have to play guest the foot because nobody can get the damn foot and then we can actually do a sports talk. Radio show five one three seven. Four nine forty-five nobody's guessed yet so it's time for you to try again to guess the foyer.

"That idiom the other way. My home. Yeah, I believe it when I see it, Yeah. When I see it. I'll believe it. Or that. Yep, he just didn't wait to drop the word idiom in there, right? You just couldn't wait. I know you mind works. I know how your mind works. Not just the science guy. That farmer John Wall like to tweet from MSN sports yesterday. Do you catch that? I did that constructed a trade that would send him along with a 2023 1st round pick to the Clippers. Okay, so he he liked the tweet. Marcus Morris, Patrick, Beverley, Rondo and Kennard. Alright old players, you know, different ages. All veterans there cannot obviously the youngest there. Beverly Defense bars could give you some scoring. Raju Rondo is what he is. What would it trade for John Wall do for the Clippers? Well, I'm sorry to interrupt. I would. I would like this. Actually, might. I am I I hear you and Patrick Beverley, who's still good. He's got that hustle. He'll always be that dog, but he's just he's not as effective as it used to be. Clearly. Rajon Rondo, I mean, what is he 36 now? Yeah, it's got to be up there. He's up there, Kinard, and he's a good player. But He needs. He's a bench role player. He would be a little bit better, too. I thought he would like to. I thought he would start evolving a little bit. It didn't happen, but I think if John Wall was on this team of Kawai, Leonard and Paul, George they all of a sudden have a three headed back court. Which is which isn't great, necessarily, but it makes it tough to defend like you've got to have some elite wings to defend this team. If those three guys are on the court, especially if you get a big Who is who is somewhat stretch or it can be a protector as well at the rim on the defensive side. I think this would be great for the Clippers. Maybe it might be the The I don't know the necessary push to get them over the edge. Maybe they need to be a three star team. Not just the student to star team. You're probably right. It would make them a lot more sudden. I mean, you know Rondo is Zeke is up there with anybody maybe never played the game, so I'm not here to knock Rondo. He's a champion. I did think in or, you know, can or reminds me a little bit of Mike Dunleavy, also from Duke. I thought that Dunleavy was going to be and I think he was taking third. Don't leave. I thought Don't leave. It is going to be a not a great pro but a better pro than he was. And I thought Condor was going to be a better pro as well. Little disappointed with his growth. I'm with you. I thought he'd be better. Marcus Morris is good but expendable. Beverly, You nailed it. The scouting report, not the same guy. Ha! You know, I mean, if you have John Wall, Paul, George and quiet and you can fill out with a shooter or two that could be a championship team really could be alright. Major League Baseball game takes place The All Star Game tonight in Colorado. It's been one sided affair lately. People forget the American League. All right, 19 3 and one. This has always been his historically cyclical, but I mean, that's for Deco's 19 3 and one since 97. Including seven straight victories. So how do we feel about the Major league Baseball? All Star game is a fair barometer in deciding which league is stronger, absolutely draw no conclusion from that at all. Now, there was a time. I mean, I'll forget about the 19 3 and one record, but you go back to the seventies. You want to tell me you have Johnny Bench is you catch your you have Steve Garvey is your first baseman. Yes, Pete Rose if you want to put it in the outfield words second. You have Joe Morgan. Uh, you, can you Gary Carter, if you want to put him behind the dish and have whatever there's a million iterations to each decade. That can that can be fluid. I can't definitively say the American League is that much better. I would not say that. I think it's a bit quirky. Um, I just kind of talk it up as a quirky occurrence. Yeah, I agree, especially when you go look at what actually matters and that's winning the World Series, and that would be the National League winning seven of the last 11. That's true. It is not several..

It's the only time from their 48 years of marriage 49 or whatever it is now that I can remember them fighting having a true argument. My dad not having two ft to stand on.

He says Hey, let me see your stomach. You still got the bruise from that Bruno line drive. So I think that's where my fear of line drives comes from. And I see these folks on the home run Derby last night, going crazy for foul balls and home runs and get that away from me. My father, the world's biggest Red Sox fan is scarred me for life when it comes to foul balls. All right, we got him. Let's switch gears. Let's go from town, old baseball stories to talking all things that can film festival with the Hollywood Reporter Zone. Scott Feinberg was kind enough to call us from across the pond in France. Are you calling us in a tuxedo? Right now? I envision you on the quiz EDT heading to another premier. What's going on, man? It's great to be with you. And that was a great sorry about your dad. And I have to say you you really don't know how many of your listeners Appreciate what a what an amazing lineage you have in and journalism. Not just, uh, on the sports side of things, but I mean the fact I mean, even your grandfather. I've studied and read about and All that so I and just to connect it all back to the movies. I mean, it's uh, It's really a cool story. Well, I appreciate you got so much and you're somebody who's coverage. I follow. Um, you know, ravenously. I just consume all of it. And it reminds me of my grandfather because for an entire generation my grandfather, Leonard Lyons. Wrote for The New York Post six days a week covering nightlife in New York for 40 years, and he was the eyes and ears to what was happening with Hollywood people and movers and shakers. And I thought of him when I saw you the other night talking about how Spike Lee requested a TV for the Euro Cup final at the Cannes Film Festival, you took me there. By you being the the eyes and ears for that story. Walk us through what happened with spike trying to watch the soccer game. I can Thank you. Yeah, So, you know, he's here as the first ever black president of the jury, uh, in 74 years of the Cannes Film Festival, So that's why he's hearing just to set the scene for that. Um, and he's had many films here. But this is the great honor being president. And so at every Screening at every dinner. You know, he's the guest of honor. And so this was an event called Women in motion, um, put on by this organization caring, which it's just like, way up in the hills over looking down on can. It's beautiful. The most fancy, you know, kind of, uh, Lobby and not in not in an offensive way. But you know that kind of an event and nobody was interested for a chunk of that event in anything, but, uh, but soccer game and Spike was, you know, during the drinks hours, they had the, uh, a television kind of on the side and he was set himself right down and everybody else then kind of Gathered around, and then they turned it off when it was there trying to get everybody to go to their table for dinner. And so one guy, though, had had it on his phone and slake was very interested in following what was going on. So, um, at a certain point when that guy that had it on his phone, like, let out a whoop or whatever. Spike and a bunch of other people gather around and and then at that point, like insisted he you know, he said, Uh, you know who have talked to together? Get this That kind of big, big screen And if you're slightly, you get what you want. Particularly as the president of the area can and so thanks to Spike, we saw the end of the end of the game. Scott Feinberg joins the show from the south of France, covering the Cannes Film Festival for the Hollywood reporter Ben Lyons, filling in for Rich Eisen on the rich Eisen show my producing partner and I always joke watching sporting events at film festivals is the greatest. I have memories of being a can looking for a WiFi signal to watch Kevin Durant in the playoffs, So I understand what that's like. But what was amazing the other night, Scott and you're over at France when spikes kicking off the festival opening night, you know he's, he said. That's a tremendous honor for someone who's dedicated their life to cinema to be the president of the jury. He's kicking it off the same night. His short film is starting Game one of the NBA Finals on ABC. It was this amazing moments for Spike Lee to his dedicated his life to sports and film. He's at the center of both of them. How has his time in France this year kind of set the Tone out there or impacted the way that everybody's experienced this year's.

"This is the Kelsey Chevrolet Extra inning show on news radio 700 wlw After a rain out, the Reds rained out in Cleveland today. Got seven games left on the road Trip three and Pittsburgh beginning tomorrow night, followed by four in Colorado Coming up a little bit later in the final hour of my three hour shift today, what happens if you bet on the second place finisher in the Kentucky Derby to win? Of course. And the winner is overturned for a positive drug test. We'll discuss that a little bit later in the hour, but right now time for a new addition. 10 teammates in a hat. I have done this segment with the likes of Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joey Votto and Dusty Baker, among others. But I have never asked anybody to do more than one episode until this week's guest. Time for our second edition of 10 players and a hat with Hall of Famer Marty Brennaman, the voice the Reds for 46 years, I wrote down the name of one player from each of those 46 teams on little slips of paper. You pick out 10. And share a memory. The first time we did this, you randomly selected legends like Johnny Bench in Tom Seaver. Plus as like, Willie. Well, pain Yah and Homer Bailey, Are you ready for the second edition? I am really excited. Dan. Player number one is Johnny Cueto. Hi, years before he ever got to the big leagues. Tom Browning told me, he said, This is a kid that's going to make an impact with this ball club. I've never heard of him. I've grown to respect the fact that Tom bribing those pitching talent when he sees it. And he came to the big leagues and he had this grew emotion. This corkscrew delivery, which he is now even modified even more with the Giants. I thought the guy was a consummate professional. Hey, went to the post every five days. The only thing that bothered me then that bothers me today is that I think his motion has an awful lot to do with the physical problems that he has. But, you know, I thought it was a huge loss when this club lost him, and I'm happy for the success he's having now with the Giants. And he got his ring. Sure did. All right player number two in 10 players and a hat with Marty Brennaman. Right? Let's see this. This would be yes. Yes, Deon Sanders. Ask this man I've ever seen in the baseball field. I thought Bo Jackson Woz and I saw Bo quite a bit in spring training and enough to draw a comparison. I don't know that I've ever seen things like Deon Sanders and the thing I respected about him is he wants made the comment that I can get off of a baseball bus put on a football uniform, and B is good. Corner cover as there's ever been in the NFL. I can't get off of football bus and put on a baseball uniforms and be that kind of talent. He respected the game. Hey, respected it for how difficult it was to play well, hey, had his moments getting hit the head with a fly ball in the outfield, but I He was his exciting of player once he got on bases I've ever seen, And the most amazing thing was He was a wonderful teammate to the guys that he played with and that I think that was born out of the fact that he had such great respect for the game. All right, two down eight to go. Here's Player number three with Marty Brennaman three. Harry Davis. Could have been one of the greatest players in the history of the game. I think had he been able to stay healthy the two years he had back to back I think it was 87 88 or 86, 87. Whatever it was Was just good. A pair of seasons that ran back to back as I think anybody I've ever seen said for Joe Morgan, when he won the EVP awards back to back in the seventies and hell of a good guy. He was a good guy to be around. Um, hey, and I had a difference one time when he got thrown out at second base, leading off the night thing with the Reds down a run, and I was very critical of him trying to stretch it into a double. You can't imagine And he came up to me in the club house the next day and and very quietly. He said. We need to talk about this. I said Okay, so we talked. And finally I said, You're never going to convince me that what you did was right. Nor are you going? I'm going to convince you that what I said was right. Let's just leave it at that. Next day is like nothing ever happened. I have great respect for him as a person, the home run in Game One of the 90 serious has to be very high on your all time Highlight list. No question about that, because, except the tone for the entire World Series, I mean, he hit it to straightaway center up on the concourse and riverfront, and he hit it off at that time, one of the best pitchers in the game and Dave Stewart. All right. Here's player number four in 10 players and hat. Mm. But I'm all time favorite players, Kevin Mitchell. As good A hitter's I think I've ever seen Hey, could get up. You're the old statement of been baseball. Get up at 3 15 on Christmas morning and it'll I drive somewhere and a happy go Lucky guy, a guy that came from a terrible gang related background in San Diego. I have incredibly good relationship with him. Um, And even then, the years later, when the Reds would go into San Diego to play the Padres, and he'd show up in the first thing you do is come find me and give me a big hug. Um, hey, could hit I mean, there is no question he could hit I A Zeiss say he's one of my all time favorite players, and I always look forward to seeing him. All right. We're hitting the halfway point. No William opinions or Homer Bailey. She has disappointed. All right. The next one is Ronnie. Oh, stir Right, O, sir, I think in his playing days didn't like me a whole lot. Hey, love Joe here, Joe had a wonderful I think Ron was resentful that I was critical about players on the team or the team in general. Um, in the years after he retired. I don't know whether it was a case of him. Uh, maybe understanding a little bit better that my job was not born. My comments were not born out of a personal Vendetta or nature against anybody, and he and I have had become good friends. We don't see each other very often, but I think we're both happy to see each other when we do. He made a comment. When I went into the Hall of Fame, he said. He sent me this long text message which I still have and at the end of it, he said, But I got to tell you something Before I close. I am shocked. That's somebody that kick your but one of the great lives of all time, and you wouldn't have wanted him to be. The guy would not have wanted him to be the guy? Absolutely, because if we have to, we have to pick up sides to fight. My first two picks. Not necessarily in this order would be radio stir and Ray Knight. They would be my top two. It's a good spot. Toronto's too to be. I'm sure he's very proud of that distinction. All right, Here comes Player number six. Scott Rolen. Quite honestly, I think this team needs just got rolling right now. But they don't have that incredible leader in the clubhouse. A no nonsense guy. I say this with great prejudice. I think he deserves to be in the baseball Hall of Fame. Whether he gets there or not, I don't know, but I think he deserves to be I felt it was a privilege to just be around him in the time that he was with this club because of his approach to the game on it was such an approach that I think other players took their cue from him by watching the way he handled himself on the field and off. Um, Andre. It's almost as if he's no longer existed. He's disappeared. You know, he's he's not in the limelight anymore. I think he's very content because he's a wonderful family man..

"And that's what the Reds were yelling on. This May 1st back in 1974. Day the dock. Ellis, a pitcher for the Pirates in the 19 seventies, hit the first three Reds to come to the plate in a game of three Rivers Stadium and Pittsburgh. Ellis later admitted he was trying to hit every ready face that night retaliation for all the years the Reds and whipped the Pirates in the playoffs. They don't respect us, Ellison told his teammates, and he carried out his threat. He rose lead off and duck two pitches before the third one hit him in the ribs. Rose calmly picked up the ball and tossed it out to Ellis before he sprinted to first base. If anything that made Ellis matter, he then nailed Joe Morgan on the first pitch and then hit Danny, Greece and in the back By that time, the Reds were, shall we say, not exactly. Digging in at the plate. Tony Perez dodged a couple of pitches. I couldn't hit him. Ellis later said he was running. After two pitches behind him and two more over his head, Tony walked. Then Ellis aimed a couple of pitches that Johnny Bench before Pittsburgh manager Danny Murtaugh finally had seen enough. Well, Doc doesn't look like you have your best stuff tonight, he deadpanned and sent Ellis to the showers.

He hadn't played since 2019 because of bad knees. Four time All Star won Rookie of the year. No. Seven m v P and 08 wanna wring his first two years thinking that he'd wanna wring a rookie there to them. VP He want wind up winning three rings. Four gold gloves Hit 2 99 so close to 300 140 homers. Almost 350 doubles stole over 107 138 bases. So one of only three Red Sox players in history with at least 100 homers in at least 100 steals. Dustin Pedroia. Yes and Mookie. But Dustin Pedroia was listed and I saw one report referred to it as generously at 5 ft seven. 57 £170 and there I doubt he was really 57. But I started think today lunch. We had this conversation about little guys in sports like the road to the little guy because I'm a little guy. I'm about 5, ft. Eight. I'm the kid who always even as I got a little bit older, still had to stand up against the cutout of Kings Island and I couldn't ride the roller coaster because I was so small. But I did not realize. Hack Wilson, the Hall of Fame Cubs outfielder who once drove in 191 runs Hack Wilson was 5 FT six. And he wore a shoe size 5.5, which is hard to believe. Joe Morgan, one of the great Little guy's listed at 571, 60. Bit Roberts, another actually another red little guy 57 about 1 50 or so I'd also do not know this. There were 30 Hall of Famers. 30 Hall of Fame position players under 5 Ft. 10. In the history of baseball, including Melody and Yogi Berra and Kirby Puckett, Pedro Martinez when he was in rookie ball. Wait, £138. I didn't know that. But we We laugh today at lunch because somebody brought up Daniel Herrera. Remember Daniel Herrera? Pitch for the Reds pitched 2008 through 2011. He was said to be 561 45 pitched over 100 endings in the major leagues and I, For whatever reason, I remember something is minuscule such level of Manu Sha as the major league debut of Daniel Herrera. Because he pitched against the Phillies in Philadelphia. He came in with the bases loaded. I can never remember the exact sequence after that, But I want to say he escaped the inning without giving up a run and struck out Ryan Howard to end the inning. And that is what I remember about Daniel Herrera. And there is a there's Ah, fantastic line from Adam done years ago. And Adam said the first time he saw Daniel Herrera was the week of the Kentucky Derby. And Dunn said he and his other teammates figured he was gonna have to leave the team on Saturday to go ride one of the horses. He was. He was so small, um, Steve Logan. I looked it up today was about 5 ft. Nine. The former Bear cat. Deante von was listed it saying there is no way Deante Bond was 6 FT one and Giovanni Bernard the Bangles listed at 59. Now, that's nothing compared to like Muggsy Bogues. The NBA air who was 53 We think of this. Mugsy Bogues, 5 Ft £336 and lasted 14 years in the NBA. And averaged eight points and eight assists per game. Spud Webb was about 57. He want to slam dunk. Nate, the skate Archibald. I looked it up today and he was Listen. It's 61. I don't think he was 61. Allen Iverson listed it 6 Ft. I'll accept that. I did not know that Ben Hogan was only 59. I didn't realize that Mario Andretti Is only 57. And I knew this because I watched the 30 for 30 on a Bruce Lee. Mr Martial Arts Bruce Lee. Only 5 FT eight. And Willie Shoemaker. The jockey was only 4 ft. 11. So there you go.

Hello, I'm Joe Morgan Stanley, film critic of The Wall Street Journal. Every now and then a film comes along. Not a great one. Necessarily. That makes you feel deeply glad it's how I feel about the dig.

I'm glad it's available to a huge audience on Netflix and glad to have gained from it heightened and lengthened sense of human history. The dig in question is called Sutton Hoo.

As a bicycle's his way to the House of Edith Pretty. She's a wealthy widow played by Carey Mulligan, and she's eager to investigate a mysterious group of mounds on her property. The project calls for an archaeologist, not Indiana Jones, necessarily but someone with more training than basil, who did make the discovery in real life. He describes himself here with quiet pride. As an excavator, but the nation is preparing for war. No archaeologists are available and basil will have to do That's how the dig addresses issues of class basil knows more about the history and texture of Suffolk soil than any credentialed expert A museum might have sent also gives us an example of an archetype dear to English films.
