"This is the numbers game with Sarah langs. They're Elaine's reporter producer for MLB dot com and Sarah. You were up in cooperstown, hanging out with Tim kirchen, our good friend who we just talked to. He talked about how emotional it was for him over the weekend from your perspective, what was it like to see to Tim have that experience? Oh my goodness. I mean, first of all, I want to give a huge shout out to ESPN production Mandarin Kelly Kerry, who organized the whole thing, rented us a bus, brought us up there so we get lunch with Tim before his big speech is a big day in everything, but I mean, it was just incredible to get to see him. You know, we just seen him in LA, but to see him in this element nervous at you with his book so emotional as you said, getting ready to get officially inducted into the Hall of Fame. I mean, it was I can't believe that we got to be there and spend some time with him and I'm just so, so elated for him. Yeah, it was really cool. Tell me, he mentioned when he came in the room and he was surprised by the presence of all the folks. He said he got emotional how about you? Oh my gosh, so when I see someone who I care about like that crying, I usually start crying. So I was kind of dabbing my eyes grateful that everyone's looking at him and not me and that moment, but it was just so wonderful and I don't know if he told this part of it, but he immediately went and grabbed his grandson and, you know, that was kind of the peak of emotion to me. He is standing there very emotional, seeing all of us surprise. And then, you know, he goes right for his grandson. That is exactly who he is. As a family man, as an emotional person, as someone person, as you know. Yeah, and I heard that story from Ravi and from Eduardo and my sense was, and I didn't ask him about that. But my sense was in grabbing his infant grandson. It was almost like you hear about people with support dogs. I feel like that's what his grandson was in that moment for him like the support person when he's dealing with all these emotions. Absolutely, you know, I was telling this story to Mandy bell who covers the guardians for MLB dot com and that's how I portrayed it, so I a 100% agree. It was kind of like you just needed somebody to squeeze and to feel in that moment as you was overcome with emotion, but I mean a true Hall of Famer as I said to him earlier in the week. He was a Hall of Fame long before this, but I'm so glad it is official official now. All right, let's play

"Deadline. That's going to be the focus for the next week. It's all around one Soto. And I know you were busy with events in cooperstown. So I just want to give you some of what I've learned in the last week. The Padres to me the most motivated team in the conversations for once Soto. I think the kit cardinals, the Padres are the most motivated team. The cardinals of the team probably most capable of making a deal because of the absolute volume of high end major league ready players that they have. I look at the Mariners as being asleep because they have a chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2001. And the conversation among executives that I speak with, they think it's probably breaks down about 75, 40 or 25% in terms of who thinks soda is going to go and who thinks this is about Mike Rizzo just gathering information and I'll tell you this, it's really interesting this particular deal because it's being made by Mike Rizzo, the perception of how he makes trades is he targets very specific players in other organizations and really just keeps working on that team as opposed to casting a wide net and circling back and circling back and circling back with each of the teams and trying to goose the offers. And I think what everyone is wondering, what is Mike Rizzo thinking? So what's your guess as to where we are here? Yeah, it's a great question. I'm with you on the Padres to me they have the biggest need and just imagine as we've talked about trading for Soto to teach junior comes back. Those three with Manny Machado hit one, two, three, for the rest of the year. I'm on the 75% group that I think he's going to get traded in the next week. I don't know how it's going to happen because it's going to be a mega deal of all mega deals, but obviously if you trade for him now, you can get him for this postseason and the next and the next. I would think you could get more for him right now than you could after the season like at the winter meetings or before next season or certainly this time next year, but so I think I'm guessing, of course, I think he's going to get dealt before Tuesday for that reason that Mike Rizzo who's very smart and very shrewd will look and say, all right, I might not get this spectacular deal a year from now. I'm going to do it now. And I think the biggest clue that we can draw upon and the question of whether or not he's going to be traded or not is based off what Rizzo told us earlier in the season. If you remember in mid may, you and I had conversations about Soto and whether or not he might be traded because the ownership situation in Rizzo's response to this whole conversation at that time was we're not trading one Soto. How can I make that more clear to everyone? I don't know, people aren't believing me, well, he's done a one 80 on that, which I think is a sign that behind the scenes, the ownership transfers playing a major role in forcing this to a decision. Right. And that's again why I think I'm guessing that he'll go before Tuesday because clarity of the ownership situation is critical here. They have to know as soon as possible. Is he with us? Or isn't he with us? And I think that will affect all of the ownership situation. So that's why I think it makes sense and you're right. Mike Brazil was telling the truth. I'm not trading Juan Soto until 440 million got turned down. Ownership situation changed. And now he has to speak differently on this because everything has changed in the last two months. And we don't know what his marching orders are, but I don't think there's any doubt that whatever those were in mid may, those have altered. Been altered. All right, let's look at the American League standings and how that might affect the buyer sell conversation of some of the teams. You have the J's, the Mariners in the race kind of separating themselves a little bit in the wild card race three, four games ahead of the group of Cleveland, Boston, Baltimore, and the White Sox. Take me through the thinking in your mind of those four teams. Cleveland, Boston, Baltimore, White Sox, is to be buyers or sellers. Well, I think the White Sox have to be buyers because they can not have this kind of expectation, especially after last year and they give up at the trade deadline when they can not only win a wild card, they can still win their division. So can I jump into I'll jump in here on this too. They're in the most winnable division. Right. It's like they're chasing a juggernaut. Right. There's zero chance they are giving up in any way on the season. They will add, not subtract. Not so sure about Cleveland, even though they've done exceptionally well getting to this point. I see the guardians being buyers, but not significant buyers. I see the Orioles, not unloading any of those key players. Mullins, I don't think so. I think they owe it to their fans. And I think they're going to hang in there for a while because I don't think they're going to get enough for say Trey Mancini to justify trading him. That's what I think. The Red Sox to me are the fascinating team buster. They have had a horrendous last week, if not two weeks. And something has to be done quickly. I don't see how they can give up on this season either. But heim bloom is not the kind of guy that's going to go out and unload all his prospects to get one player that might or might not get them into the playoffs. They're in big trouble right now. It'll be fascinating to see what happens, but I don't think they're going to sell up. I still think they're the Red Sox, and they have to buy not sell. Just to double back in a couple of those, the Orioles, Jorge Lopez, if you're running the Orioles, ease your all star, but as we know, relievers are like hot stocks. And when they have value you typically move them on, if you're sitting and running the Orioles, what are you doing with him? Well, again, I say they don't trade too much, but let's face it with all due respect is great as he's been this year. This is his only great year that he's had and if they can get something for him, I think he's the kind of guy they move. But if they're going to win at all moving forward, they need saint yandere and Hayes and Mao castle and Cedric Mullins. Those are the guys I'm saying, they're not going to deal nor should they. But if Lopez goes, I wouldn't be surprised. Yeah, and again, within the context of how relievers are viewed by teams, you look at a guy like David bednar of the pirates, Joe maniple of the Diamondbacks, to me, if you get a reliever that has value in a moment, you don't feel like you're in a position to contend, then you should take advantage of the value. Yes, absolutely. And the Yankees just lost Michael king for the year. That guy's really good. They are really going to miss him. And they're not going to hold off the Astros. They're not going to beat the Dodgers in the world series unless they fortify now with the injuries they've had. So yes, I think there will be a very strong bullpen market because there are so many bullpen arms that can make a difference. So what I'm hearing about the Red Sox is that they could be both buyers and sellers. JD Martinez is out in the trade market. And the perception is that he might be the most likely veteran to get moved in part because he's in the last year of his deal. This is probably the end of his time with the Red Sox here in the next few months. And with the DH now used in both the national league and American League, he probably have teams that would be interested in taking him on. And you can fill a DH spot and still contend. You could draw from guys they have internally. Maybe Bobby dahlbeck. Moves over to the DH spot and they see if he can find himself there. You trade for a better defensive first baseman. What I was hearing yesterday was is that the Red Sox at the moment are not inclined to trade Sandra bogarts, a, they're still hanging in the edge of the race and B, I think they want to keep that channel open to potentially resize and or moving forward. Yeah. Look, buster, they need to do whatever it takes to make the playoffs. But more than that, they have to keep zander Bogart. Somehow, one way or another, and they have to keep Rafael Devers also. I personally don't see how they're going to keep both of them.

"Run in 2004. Marty's in the deep right field. Back to we'll see you later tonight. But tsuchiya, the son of Japanese immigrants is a baseball fan. Born and raised in Cincinnati, he grew up rooting for the reds. 20 years ago, the reds began hiring him to create sculptures outside the stadium, depicting their local heroes, like Johnny Bench and Pete Rose. And because of that work, Matthews international, the company that produces the plaques for the Hall of Fame, discovered tsuchiya. And offered him the job of plaque maker in 2016. It's going to even like a dream come true because I didn't think it was even something that you know. I always knew as a kid. Someone's making those Hall of Fame plaques. But I never imagined that one day they'll be making them. Of course, it isn't easy. There is a little bit of pressure involved. John Chester coxi at the national baseball Hall of Fame is one of the few people who guide Suu Kyi along the way. You know, when you think about a bronze plaque that will hang on the walls of the plaque gallery of the Hall of Fame, probably the most sacred space in our entire sport, it needs to stand the test of time. To get it right, they begin working as soon as the new inductees are announced. The Hall of Fame sends Suu Kyi a photos of each player so we can study their features. Suu Kyi is sketches the first designs on his computer, and then he does them to scale in clay. Heating up the material so he can work it between his fingers and with his tools

"I think he wins three in a row, no one's ever done that. And by the way, because Pete Alonso cares more than anybody about this event, he's got Dave joust coming back who is a coach of the mets last year, went to the nationals. I talked to Dave the other day. He said that Jeff McNeill walked up to him in spring training and said, you know he's going to ask you to do it again. And Dave, who's now established as a home run Derby pitcher celebrity. He's throwing at the home run Derby. He did earlier this year at the Derby X in London. He's got Tripp scheduled the South Korea and to Mexico to be the home run Derby pitcher. That's the guy who's going to be on the mound for Pete. And I love it to Dave jowls doesn't throw very hard at all. He's 65, Tim. Right. He's my age, and he's and he's not throwing anything firm, which we all love. That's what we're all told. You know, Bryce Harper's dad was throwing like 90. It seemed like 40 feet away and Bryce Harper and everything in the seats. This guy's going to throw about 40 and it's still going to work. And whatever works works. Two quick ones for you before you go. You and I are doing the All-Star Game on radio for ESPN on Tuesday. We're excited to do that. It'll be fun being the dugouts, having conversations with players. I'm not wild about all the all stars who are dropping out of this event Tim. It's kind of a bummer. Yeah, again, buster, if I may, I'm just too old sometimes, but I grew up at a time where guys would play the entire All-Star Game. Johnny Bench would catch the entire All-Star Game. Willie Mays played the entire game. And that's not a fault of today's players. It's just not the way the game works. I think we're over 80 players buster. 80 who have now made the all star team in one form or another. And the original group, and then with all the dropouts, 80 players is too many players to make the all star team. And that doesn't mean there are guys who are going who do not belong. It's just, it should be a more select group and I'm sorry. If you're asked to go to the All-Star Game, you should go to the All-Star Game. And if there's any way you can play in it, you should. And if you can play 9 innings, you should. But we don't do that anymore. And then that saddens me just a little bit. I talked to Kyle schwarber about the Derby a few weeks ago. He initially was sort of leaning against doing and then he was like, you know, it would be good if I did it, right? And I'm like, a 100%, like you're one of the best guys in that you hope that all of these annual erosions don't create this trend that is irreversible. There needs to be a conversation between the player association, Major League Baseball. And I'm guessing fox is not wild about it. You know, who's broadcasting the game, they're going to go, hey, wait a second. We need all these players invested in this event. Last one before you go. To me, as we are now 15 days away from the trade deadline, the team under the most pressure to make a deal, the Boston Red Sox. We saw Chris sale walk out. He had the busted finger yesterday. He's going to be out weeks. They're pitching already stunk before that. They need to make a trade Tim, and I know that's not heim bloom's nature he tends to work very deliberately. They need help right away. They're in trouble buster. There's no doubt the way they play. They just gave up 24 runs in back to back games to the Yankees. Yankees have never scored 24 runs in back to back games ever in their history against the Red Sox. And you look at their pitching and we just figured, well, when sale, whitlock and valdi come back, they're pitching is going to be straight and they're going to be good and they're going to make the playoffs. Now we're not so sure about that because sales out for a while. That looked terrible. And even though a baldy and whitlock are great additions, I agree. They're a pitcher short. The Mariners are for real. They've won 14 games in a row. Even though the rays have had a million injuries, they always find a way to win. And the Blue Jays seem to seem to have recovered. There are three, four and one with their new manager. They won three games in a row. I think the Red Sox have to go do something and they have to do it before the trade deadline. If they're going to make the playoffs. All right, Tim, good to talk with you. And I will see you at the park and I'll tease you about being

"He made an adjustment and still hit with tremendous power. He's one of the best defensive first baseman in the game. One of the great guys you'll meet and the perfect guy to build around. He's going to win an MVP someday. And I think if the a's are going to go and do and start the ball rolling, it's going to start with Matt Olson because other teams are going to want him so badly. And then following him, I have a hard time believing both mats are going to get traded in the before the season starts whenever that is. But Sean and I, another pitcher, I have to think if medals and go a frontline starting pitcher goes and they have a few of those. The elite reliever market is going to be the hottest corner of what's going on in baseball with transactions. In other words, among the relievers around signed free agents, you're going to see all kinds of actions and the expectation in the industry is that's all going to be led by the mets. Who need to fill out that bullpen after spending a lot of money on other parts of the team. And in particular, left handed relievers. What do you think? Well, the mets with buck showalter in charge are going to leave no stone unturned about getting this team ready to win. This is buck's, I'm sure this is buck's last shot at winning the World Series going to the World Series, and he needs help in the bullpen. It's not a terrible bullpen now, but there are so as you said, so many relievers out there and relief pitching is so important today that a deep versatile bullpen doesn't guarantee anything but it sure makes it a whole lot easier to win and with everything that the mets have done. And they've got people really excited with the braves potentially taking a step backwards and the nationals, Marlins, Philly, he's not as good as we thought they would be at some point. This is the time for the mets, the doors wide open. So I fully expect them to be active. Even though they've been active to up to this point, they're going to go get some bullpen help for sure. After Freddie Freeman, the biggest names that are going to be in the marketplace are Carlos Correa and Trevor story and Tim, I think a lot of what's going to happen with those guys, just going to come down to the medicals. You know, there's concern in the industry about Correa's back. Concerned that despite the fact he's in his mid 20s that he's had a lot of treatment on that. I think teams are going to want to know a lot about that. And that's going to shape any offers that he gets. Which brings me back to the wondering if he's going to wind up back with Houston on a 6 year deal with an opt out after the second year or something like that. And the bottom line is Trevor's story needs to throw for teams. I think teams are going to say yes, we love Trevor story. We love his athleticism, but we're concerned about is throwing arm we're concerned about the elbow. And we're going to want to put eyes on him before we invest. What do you think? Yeah, I'm with you on both. I mean, both of these guys should be as premium free agent as you can possibly get, given the position they play, the defense they bring. And their age and track record, they should be breaking records, but with the health of each one, each one is going to get paid really well before it's over, but you're right. They have to prove that they're a 100% healthy. And if they somehow do, then Correa is going to get a ton and stories going to get close to that. But you can not sign a guy to a 6 year deal without absolute certainty, best you can do that he's going to be healthy for those 6 years. When I talk to you last week, we were not allowed to talk about the one through 50 of the ESPN top 100 players Major League Baseball history because that hadn't been unveiled yet. So I'm bringing you back today to ask you about one through 50. What were some things that jumped out at you? Well, I've told you a million times that I think Derek Jeter is an underrated player, not an overrated player, and people scream at me all the time about that. And I'm gonna stick to that, but Jeter had 28 ahead of Johnny Bench in Albert Pujols. I'm sorry. You just can't go there. Those guys were better baseball players than Derek Jeter. And I think Derek Jeter is one of the three greatest shortstops of all time. I think he should be in the top 50. I just don't think he should be ahead of Albert Pujols and Johnny Bench. Paper Martin is the best pitcher that I have ever seen for a short period of a career. So peak value, Pedro's better than anyone I've ever seen. Better 99, 2000. They want I've ever seen. But for career value, you can't put him ahead of Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, and Randy Johnson. You can't. Now, that still means Pedro's in top 20 top 15, ten pitcher, maybe of all time, but for career value, I think those guys have to be ahead of him. So Pedro at 11 was a little bit high for me, even though I just acknowledged again. He's the best pitcher I've ever seen, but career value matters to me, and I couldn't put him ahead of those other three on my list. It's so funny. You and I didn't talk before we did this, but Jeter was right at the top of my list. Like, I'm with you. I have through the years because I covered Derek and people would say he was overrated. I'm like, you don't get it. Like, the energy that he brings every day, the competitiveness, he brings every day. There's real value in that. Okay, he's not the best defensive shortstop. But to have a player be that good, that consistently and what only 6 players in history have more hits than he does, right? Or 5 players have more hits than he does. And to perform as well as he did in the postseason, you know, people say, well, it's because he had a lot of opportunities. Timmy had 200 hits in the postseason and it's remarkable how close his postseason numbers are to his regular season numbers. But that all said, I agree with you. I thought that where we had him was too high ahead of Sandy Koufax ahead of Johnny Bench. How did Joe Morgan? Like, I feel like Joe Morgan very underrated in our list. Yeah, we had a lot of underrated people. And I found the second baseman, I'm not sure we got the second baseman right. Roger sworn to be his greatest second baseman of all time. I think he's the greatest right handed hitter of all time. And we had him 20th. That was a little bit low for me. Again, look, I understand he played a hundred years ago. So we're going to hold that against him, but his dominance back then, Morgan didn't get the same credit he deserved. I told you Andy Collins, Naples away, those guys didn't get enough and even Robbie almar didn't get enough support at that position. It's really hard position to play, but Joe Morgan should have been higher. I'm with you..

"Likely to wind up doing now about there. And maybe I'm wrong. And I hope I'm wrong, is we go through this ten year slug where every year we're checking a rod's percentages climbing slowly and slowly and slowly. And just going to really come down to a matter of how many older voters fall off and how many newer voters come on. But aside from that, I think this is the same old story for the next ten years. Well, you know what, as you were talking, realizing, you know, what else might be working for Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez? Barry Bonds about your Clemens, okay? 'cause I think they're getting in. I think one of these special committees is going to he's going to acknowledge the reality about PD users in the Hall of Fame. We talked on get up this morning about how look I think the Hall of Fame is a great museum, but not having bonds and Clemens in the Hall of Fame. Completely under credit undercuts the credibility of the plaque room. And I think that the Hall of Famers over time and you saw the late bob Gibson acknowledge in his comments, well, you know what? I can't say that I wouldn't use steroids if I had the opportunity. I think Johnny Bench has been more circumspect, I think that eventually bonds and Clemens get in, gets get in. And at that point, if you're a voter, if you don't see the writing on the wall and just acknowledge, like, boy, we gotta just put in the best players. I would be shocked. I do wonder if bonds and Clemens eventually getting into a special committee might help Alex. It would definitely help out. If bonds and Clemens get in via committee, it essentially allows the baseball writers to throw out all the rules to which they've been using for the last ten or 15 years. The only bit of pushback that I'll give you on the bonds and bonds of companies not getting in through the writers and what that might mean. I'm not convinced that this isn't sort of in its own kind of weird way buster, a charming thing about the baseball Hall of Fame. For my money, one of the most interesting things about it is that Pete Rose is not in it. And that's who mister Jackson is not in it. Now, baseball is the only sport that has a whole thing that we care about at all. And I'm not certain that bonds and Clemens Getty in. Although deserving would drive any more interest, would add any more credibility. And my judgment, it's one of these sort of unique baseball Y things that maybe it's just because I live in the sports talk radio world. But I've always thought that the Pete Rose debate, but she was show debates and now someday the bonds and Clemens debate actually add more relevance to the museum and the Hall of Fame than otherwise. I think the fact that bonds and Clemens are not in is just silly. And, you know, I can't at a fairness to players. I can't name names among guys, but I could.

"Oh my gosh. Do i have something so special for you guys here so as you remember and as you may not know as you may have forgotten because there were fifty players that you were supposed to remember but i just put two teams from different lot much different. Baseball's i threw baseball styles of play. I threw deadball player. Eras in with guys from the fifties in the sixties. And then i threw guys from the seventies in with guys from twenty twenty like. This is a this series. Did not disappoint. So this is so i had got to pick a home field for each team and i picked the polo grounds for The old timers. Just because i feel like it's one of my more. It's one of the more famous like old stadiums. And then i picked that one for the old timers and for the young guns. I picked dodger stadium. Because i really almost went with the reason i went with dodger. Stadium was because. I feel like fenway park and wrigley field specifically. I didn't wanna pick between either of those. And i didn't want to go with like the newest ballpark either. Because i wanted to go something that probably all of these guys at least in this I wanted to go with a stadium. In which every player on the team would be semi familiar. Now you beira and Eddie mathews might not be as familiar with the polo grounds. As somebody like anti-kabul roger horns berry babe ruth but nobody in the young guns would have really known and everybody. Except for eddie mathews problem or eddie mathews is the only guy that may have played at dodger stadium on the old timers team. Just because the dodger stadium i believe opened in nineteen sixty and eddie mathews i nine hundred sixty one eddie mathews so in then this this game. This first game did not disappoint. You had chipper jones leading off chase utley at second base now. The reason that chase was at second base is because i accidentally put him in Instead of sammy's instead of robinson can no but the biggest reason that i decided to Go with that is because of Not i didn't go with chase elliott. I was moving guys around. Not everybody played the same game. Johnny bench in buster posey actually split a lot of time. It they they split every game. Actually i believe they did at least tried to do like that Albert pujols holes didn't play every game mark. Maguire didn't play every game. I think griffey might have played every game berry. Bonds may have played every game but for the most part. I was really trying to move guys around like actually even played. Pete rose at shortstop one game and he made three years. And then i didn't. I don't think. I put put rose back at shortstop but i did put them back at second because he was a decent second basement and that kind of thing but i was just trying to find ways to get some of these guys in like i put albert pools at third base even though his two thousand eight person is actually first baseman. I put him at third base. And because i wanted to a chance to play. Joey votto and our pools also in air there so i kind of moved back around in that kind of thing. I was also trying to get a rotation going For for these pitchers now. I know guys like cy young could have gone out and thrown every single one of these games. But i wanted it to be more fun than i wanted to get to. I wanted to see how the simulated would end up working out so game. One was a dogfight. I had pedro martinez versus cy young. On the mound you had chipper jones leading off for the young guns chase up the batting second. Mary bonds mark. Maguire sammy sosa. Ken griffey junior. Alex rodriguez john in johnny bench to round out the young guns now for the old timers. It was ty cobb leading off roger horns berry in second babe ruth and lou gehrig in their standard. Three and four ole stan. Usual five will eddie mathews. At third base at that yogi berra was batting seventh and honest wagner. Was the eighth hitter now. Unfortunately i'm not able to designate a d. h. So all of the pitchers are they have to bat regardless of the situation. Unfortunately i just don't know how to. I just didn't know how to added the h. And i don't think that i was able to for most of these. But what's really interesting. Is that out of all of these homerun hitters especially on the young guns. There weren't very many home runs in this game in these the series so game. One kind of went something like this. It was zero zero after the first inning. Cy young went one. Two three got a lineout. A fly out and fly out by chipper jones chase liam barry bonds pedro martinez got pop out. Got ty cobb out. Got robert horns buried. Groundout walked babe. Ruth and lou gehrig ended up striking out en su mark. Maguire gotta walk. Sammy sosa hit into a three six fielder's choice and he beat it out. Ken griffey junior ended up flying out to left Side deep centerfield and al trod rigas ended up grounding out still zero zero after the top to bottom to stan. Musial hits a fly ball double to right field. I hit the ball game for either side after that. Any mathews grounded. Out to first base. But stan musial was able to advance to third then yogi bear a struck out for strike. Three hottest wagner got walked at by intentionally and then cy young flew out. Going into the top of the third. Johnny bench flew out. Pedro martinez actually lined out chipper. Jones took a ball took four pitch. Walk chase utley hidden leg. So now yet runners on first and second with barry bonds up but barry bonds ended up fouling out to third cy young out of the jam and bottomless third. Ty cobb rogers horns barry in babe. Ruth all went down in order ty cobb and horns berry striking out swinging in the top of the fourth. You have you have the youngun starting to hit the ball a little bit mark. Maguire blue to single to center centerfield for a single and then sammy sosa grounds out to shortstop they got the force at second but sammy sosa was fast and it was able to beat the double play but unfortunately ken griffey junior then. Hit into a four. Six fielder's choice leaving. Ken griffey junior as the lone runner with two outs. Alex rodriguez then hit a ground ball. Single into right center field and made ing at griffey from first to third but need have johnny bench but johnny bench flew out then in the bottom of the fourth pedro martinez starting to settle in goes one two get gets a couple of groundouts by lou. Gehrig's stan musial and then strikes out eddie mathews and it's the fifth badri martinez was leading off. He grounded out to third chipper. Jones ended up flying out to right center field. Then ty cobb botches routine fly ball makes an air and chase utley reaches berry bonds then skies to left centerfield falls in for.

"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..

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron

"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

"They weren't playing for the money, right? I mean, that That was certainly a thing with many I want was lucky enough. This is probably the most amazing day I've ever been able to spend in my professional career. Was lucky to produce a panel. This was in Cincinnati in 2015 for the Major League Baseball All Star game. We did a panel for MLB network and it was really nice. Henry Aaron, Sandy Koufax and Johnny Bench in a room just the four of them and Bob Costas narrated a conversation with them and You know, the conversation was free flowing and absolutely incredible. I think I was. I was one of you know, six other people in the room to witness that conversation, which was absolutely as a baseball geek, one of the coolest things you could ever imagine in your life. But the conversation often turned to the fact that they had to Find other ways to make money later in life, which is why autographs was such an issue to this day for someone like Sandy Koufax, right? It wasn't about the money like it is today, and these guys would all have hundreds of millions of dollars in today's times. You did also spend some time with Hank Aaron himself in making the movie And when I see him interviewed over the years and heard him speak the word that Comes to mind for me from the outside looking in. It is dignified. He just seemed a man who carried himself with a lot of dignity. But what was your personal experience with with Hank Aaron? You know one on one. Henry. Did you find the perfect work? On guy. I would be remiss if I didn't mention his wife, Billy Aaron, as well and by the way condolences T o You know, everybody in that family, but especially the Billy I mean. I Billy Wasson. The enemy of class. We were a production crew in the home of a legend. That is not always the most well received thing in the world and Billy put out a place for us. You know, Here's some chicken, right, guys? I mean, Billy was absolutely lovely and dignified and an incredible host. And you know, Henry, let us then. Six hours in his home in a personal home. Um, it was It was really just an amazing day. And you know, every interaction that I had, In fact, I think really Good way to look at it. We had on our crew. Our main VP for that film was a gentleman named out on to who you might know, Robin and hey was the only of our crew the only DP who is African American. And after the film wrap Henry and set him a personal note. He autographed picture and said, You know, to Alex on you from Henry Aaron, you know, thanks for making this film and really just think that gesture alone, not asked for unprompted sort of epitomizes the class and dignity that someone like Mr Aaron has It was obviously a story worth telling. Then, now and forever as Henry. Hank Aaron, Um, legend died yesterday at the age of 86. Josh really appreciate you coming on and helping to, you know, I think illuminated to some people who obviously didn't see him in real time.

"Which days you thought about that impossible view for for Fran, Chester Martin Brennaman and his first game behind the Mike to call Henry Aaron 714th career home run. Let me give you a call or tie of sorts. With between Henry Aaron and the Reds, Dusty Baker. You may remember, I do this. This feature called 10 teammates and a hat where I left. My name's great stuff. It's a great segment, and so I could one with Dusty Baker and, you know she played forever and mounted. So there were a million names in this hat. He pulls out 10 names, and one of them is Henry up proceeds to tell the story of how he was an 18 year old kid and the Raves wanted to sign him. Um, his mom didn't want to decide Is Mom wanted Dusty Baker to go to college. So the Braves had Henry Aaron make the pitch to Dusty Baker's mom. For wise. He's inside a professional baseball contract. And not go to college, and Henry Aaron said that Dusty's mom, Listen, Listen, This is Baker. I will take care of him like he's my own son. I will make sure he goes to church. Make sure he goes to bed early. I'll get him up and make sure he hasn't breakfast. And that's what Henry Aaron did for 18 year old Dusty Baker when he started out his professional baseball career was on the field. With Henry, and when he hit that home run from the Braves, Dusty Baker, Dusty Baker was on deck. Dusty Baker was the on deck hitter when Henry Aaron hit number 7 15 and who was the young part second base that first designated it was a home run. That I don't know. You got me on that one. Let me give you a hint. He later died of Riverfront Stadium and home plate, Boy, I certainly remember that incident, but now I'm drawing a blank on the name of the Cherry Empire. Harry. That's right. He was the one to second base called it. And then what was 74? I think it was 1996. I'm like that. About 22. Years later, he died at home plate, and I'm thinking And then they had the big ceremony on you might be too young to recall if you're a young man, but in 1974, they stopped the game outcome. Bowie Kuhn, who kind of order that he playing the game. There was Pete Rose, Johnny Bench Henry Aaron, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Dusty Baker all there, and they did some sort of ceremony on the field. And Henry said, you know, kept saying, Look, let's play baseball her and then enough for this and the guy who was over this 3 74 Mark and left Center field. Sitting in the third row with a glove in his hand at the age of 12 was Brian Combs. How about that? Brian comes got the tickets the day before from Bob Braun, who was doing a TV show broadcast it. Also here he went on is a 12 year old boy dressed his Mr Red with a big job he's gonna bring in the photo and Bob Brown said here, young man. Here's two tickets to Mars game. It was in the Philly Market Parade, and Brian comes watch the ball fall more less at his feet. Picked up by an UMP picked up by a cop in his first year name. Police officer Clarence Williams of CPM because he was a rookie cop. He was the guy in between the wall and the frame of Riverfront Stadium is like 6 ft. Separation and and he was like he was like in an alley and he heard a ball was hit. He heard the yelling. Had no idea what was going on. He couldn't see He was like in the vice and and the ball came over the first wall, hit the second wall, then bounce back to hit the wall that 3 74 Mark and the ball landed at his feet and he picked it up. S. O'Brien comes looking down at Officer Clarence Williams with the baseball She probably gave back to Henry own car. I see did yeah, a certain famous Plum house man. Send someone out the left center field to see if they could find the ball and the cop in uniform is holding the ball. And said, Would you give that back to you so sure. I'm on duty out. You can have it and the ball is now on now in Cooperstown. Did. Officer Williams get anything exchange? Did they give him a base? Yes, they did. Thank you. Henry. Aaron signed some things and gave it to the police officer. And the rest, shall we say is history. Nice. You know, I have a brother named Mark is actually my stepbrother. So we had different parents given Grandparent's his grandfather gave him an autographed baseball signed by Henry Aaron. Which he had displayed. We shared a bedroom, his kids, so he had it displayed in our bedroom. And then one day we were out playing catcher playing baseball in the neighborhood and we lost the ball. No. My brother ran upstairs into our bedroom. He grabbed the autographed Henry Aaron baseball, and that's what we played with and you know, naturally ruined it. Well, what it would have been a very valuable piece of memorabilia. We stupidly you know, played catch and baseball with in the backyard, destroying it. You may recall 2 to 3 years ago, baseball designated the four living greatest baseball players of all time and an All Star game. They were Henry Aaron, Willie Mays, Johnny Bench and Sandy Koufax Co fax at a baseball scholarship to you See Johnny Bench played here is 17 year career. And Henry Aaron had all these marks and milestones in Cincinnati. The only one that wouldn't connected us was really amazed. So the four greatest that ever lived. Three of the four have great connections to Cincinnati, and one might say, Pete Rose would have been on that list somewhere. But of course, he's been more less banished from baseball and that Zorro NPI roast, so no matter what happens down hard There's a Cincinnati connection, everything. Everything in the world ultimately gets tied to the Queen City. I know last night. You ready for the big question? I am. The Mount Rushmore of you See Bear cat basketball. All men off. Say all men. Yeah, we're gonna have four Mount Rushmore. You see men's basketball Go. The Mount Rushmore. The top four Tripoli players. No coach is correct. Okay, well, the big O is obvious. Kenyon Martin..

Ryan comes e o Hope hope that I was going away for a while. Ever see it again? Something like that. I can't imagine what it would be in the game so different. The players don't stay in the same towns and move around and You know you don't have the affinity that we had growing up here. But you know when they talk to younger people about, you know, ties to the Reds or why you feel the way they do. I mean, it's memories like that. That just a minute. They like the corners of your mind that you go back and touches you do. Um Or I mean better innocent time now, and I mean, I can close my eyes and see that day is clears. Yeah. Is yesterday or 41 92?

I mean, the center of the world was right here in Cincinnati. And Yeah, that year more than ever, with Aaron playing his first game, and it was perceived the Reds are going to do. Well, they lost in the playoffs. And that was the year that Rose got in a fight with Buddy Harrelson. Yeah, I think you got Johnny bench. I think I'd hurt that year. That was here that he missed some games because surgery or something. When Dr Gonzalez, you know, Lou is now dead, but he was It was it was the doctor, the cutting and Johnny bench now to get the mass office long, Sam.

Fact the Reds right now have one. How many World Series games in a row? 75 is 14 and 76. 4 and 90 got nine World Series games in a row. I think the all time records tend by the Yankees at one point, but the Reds have won nine World Series game. Where will we ever see another World Series? And Cincinnati Man can they signed Trevor Bauer and bring in D D Gregorius for this year that maybe they tried that last season? It didn't work. Nothing worked. Nothing. 20.

"Hear and Hank Aaron interview, But Hank has just passed away at the age. Of 86. He joined us this past April, and we thought that instead of talking about him about we go back when we talked to him, so in about 20 minutes from now. We will bring this to you The last interview that we did, and that's many interviews over the course of my career with one of my idols. Thank Erin who passed away the age of 86 last five months. Some of baseball's all time greats. Ass away. Tom Seaver, Lou Brock, Joe Morgan, Bob Gibson, Don Sutton. And now And Karen will get phone calls as well. 8773 d p show. Email address. TP A damn. Patrick dot com Twitter Handle at DP Show BIG football Weekend We don't have an updated status report on Patrick Mahomes, but I would probably exhale. If I'm a can city chiefs you got a lot of reps in practice and probably will be medically cleared out of concussion protocol at some point today. Now we're more than two days away, so it's plenty of time he's still able to get in his reps. That's what I wondered about during the week. If he was going to be hampered in how much time he would get with the first team offense. Here's something to keep in mind in the regular season. Nobody allowed more completions, too tight ends than the Buffalo Bills did. Travis Kelsey is coming off a record setting year. Just something to file away when we look at that offense, and if you go, I'll be damned. Travis. Kelsey is open all the time. Now. Not that Buffalo is going to go. You know what? We just can't cover a tight end. We'll let him have his catches. They're going to do their best to try to stop Travis Kelsey Easier said than done. But Buffalo surrendered more catches, two tight ends this year than any NFL team and one of the amazing things about the NFL's how closely match these teams are. The lines are hovering around a field goal for both of these games this weekend. And you never know. I always feel like there's one close game. And then there's a blow out so many times of funny bounce a mist past changes, everything and legacies are defined by the thinnest of margins. When you think about Tom Brady He won six Super Bowls. Look how close he was to winning other Super Bowls. Look how close he was to losing Super Bowls. It's a fine line. Because he could have beaten the Eagles. Marie could have beaten the Giants. But then you look back on some of these friendly bounces or Adam Venit Terry with clutch field goals you had you know the tuck game. When that should have been a fumble. They shouldn't even gotten to the Super Bowl. But this is how legacies are built by the thinnest of margins, and I go back to Patrick Mahomes. We're all ready to say it will be one of the great quarterbacks of all time. Go back to the regular season when we thought he dislocated his name go back to the postseason when he was behind against the Texans behind against the Titans. They ended up winning those games in the Super Bowl. He's down 14th quarter. Six minutes to go. Jimmy Garoppolo completes the pass. San Francisco is gonna win that game. Chris Jones knocks it down the slightest of margins there. So you have Patrick Mahomes, Josh Alan going toe to toe. And then, of course, you have Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, a trip to the Super Bowl. Hangs in the balance. I said to Todd, there's a couple people I'd love to hear if they were able to speak about Hank Aaron, the former commissioner, Bud Ceiling, who was a lifelong dear front of Hank Aaron's And also Bob Bucher. I thought that those would be too great people to have to talk about Hank Aaron. And then I said to Fritzi, you know what See if Johnny bench would join us. Because it feels like Johnny's a member of the show. And you know, he also was there he faced on sudden. But, Hank, you know what? Hank Aaron hit 7 14. He was in Cincinnati. And Jack. Billing him was the picture, and I believe Johnny was behind home plate for that home. Run that Hank it and then he goes to Atlanta and then hit the home run off Al Downing 7 15 year Upon a couple years ago, the topic of changing sports names came up and I'm different baseball teams. There's an article written about it. And the Great Atlanta Brave Dale Murphy tweeted out, always felt that hammering Hank had the hammer was one of the coolest nicknames ever at the Atlanta Braves ever consider a name change make it the Atlanta Hammers who As one of the better ideas. If that situation we came to pass I've heard in a while. Yeah. Yeah, I wondered about it, and I think Johnny was behind the plate when when Hank hit that, But I remember that Hank was going to sit out. Then Buoy kun, the commissioner said, No. You're playing in the game. Because Hank wanted to set the record in Atlanta. And so Hank played and then hit the home. Run off, Jack. Billing him. 8773 d P. Show. Email address. TP A damn. Patrick dot com Twitter Handle at DP Show Robin, New Orleans. Hey, Rob. Thanks for joining us. Hey, Danny, I I sure also don't want toe bring down the mood or anything, but I grew up outside of Atlanta and, um Henry Aaron was my first sports hero and actually got to see him play and Fulton County Stadium and I have had many disagreements with people over the years about who the greatest hitter that ever wasps. Itwas and a lot of them were from Boston, and I said Henry Aaron. Henry and look it up, and I've always appreciated the fact that you championed him. Um So thank you, Danny. And Ah, Sad day, but go hammers. Yeah, um Aye. There's nothing dramatic about him. No, he he lacked flair. But that's not who he was. But he was. You know, in that group with Mickey Mantle on Willie Mays. You can't be any more flamboyant than those guys were the way they played. Hank just went about his business. Hank never hit 50 home runs in a season. Yeah. But back then, if you hit 30 35, you are power hitter. And if you look at the effortless swing of Hank Aaron now there was the launch angle. There was no, you know, you know he was a 300 hitter for his career. Hank had this ability to flip his wrist. He just flicked his wrist. And somehow somebody at that size could hit the ball that far and hit 750 home runs. Let's bring in the hall of Famer Johnny Bench, You went toe to toe. I'm sure with Hank quite a few times and I don't know when you got the news, Johnny, But if I'm bringing it to you now I apologize, But I thought you'd be a good person toe have on Well, actually Dan alive. I've got all of a sudden flood of text and Henry and with you, no eyes that are crying and it's and I said, No, Don't tell me this. I mean, I'm just absolutely worn out from This is our ninth personally, years and with them the years time and you know what Don Sutton and Lasorda and I mean Dies, Hang out with in Palm Springs and then I thought, Man, this is just getting too much and then on and I just sent a picture to Fritzi and I hope we can pull it up..
