"You and we were both young. Then it sounds like Ron. Marbury and Garnett. We like you said we thought we had basketball greatness for decades to come. And we thought that this was going to be a really spark a great team for years and years and Marguerite just couldn't handle being second fiddle to a hall of Famer Yeah. He was he was gonNA. Be Second Fiddle. He was going to be paid less because that's when they had put the new. SALARY CAPS on yeah. So. Garnett was making all the big money and he was going to be capped out. Disaster and it just come out the series. We got swept like Houston in the playoffs, but even Barclay afterwards grabbed them all and said boys do not wreck this. You got a great thing about to happen. Ride this out and know people want thank you. Ron and people wonder why we're always worried about great players leaving. You know we always have this inferiority complex in this town about great players. They always WANNA leave. Marguerite part of the reason for that. High. Scott thank you for your patience. I appreciate it. WHO WAS THE MINNESOTA TRADE? That broke your heart. Oh Yeah. Okay, good conversation! Thank you for having it okay. This one goes back to MINNESOTA. Another Minnesota twins trade. Okay, big contract dispute with frank, Viola Young Award winner. Yeah, we I think it was nineteen eighty nine, and at the time it was very bitter because they were only a million dollars apart. They trade francophile for Bushel load to players to the new. York, mets! Yes, it did turn out very good couple of years later with a lot of those players they end up winning the world series, but I remember the contract Steve was going on for. The whole off-season and into the eighty nine season these are cy young award winner for nineteen eighty seven. Yes, and that one really burned and at the time everyone's going. What in the Act is going on? Why did we trade our best pitchers since Jim Kaat. Yeah no kidding and your your. Your memory is very good on this, so here's here's Frank Viola coming up a CY. Young season. And the twins vault pay them and they ended up trading viola. Four Rick. Tevin, Kevin Tapani David West Tim Drummond had a player that would ultimately end up becoming a jack savage, now as it turns out Aguilara in Tapani had great success here so the trade, unlike unlike many of these jay talking about where we get absolutely destroyed in the trade. That was not necessarily the case here, so at least we got requisite talent back, but at the time of that trading vile hurt a lot, and especially, because in the case of most of those players. We didn't know if they're going to turn, turn into viable viable contributors. The twins I agree at the time. It really hurt, but it took a couple of years to bear that fruit Rick Aguilera. It becomes one of our best closers of all time. And TAP TAP. A quality pitcher for the better part of a decade for this team. So ended up. It ended up in the long run. The trade worked out, but that wasn't, but that doesn't mean that it couldn't have broke your heart when it happened and I think that's a totally valid answer Scott.

How do you know SIS rally now for people don't remember. Dino sister rally was a beloved member of those great eighties era, nor star teams and CISA. Rally was an ethically popular prolific goal scorer for that team. Also Free Yeah and now, what do you remember? We got in that trade I? Don't I have no recollection of it anymore. You. Know I I don't either, but the reason they traded on. My everybody will probably agree with this. Incident in the garage. Was that really why we traded him just because he did a he some mild streaking around the neighborhood. I don't know I think. They traded him because he was that. He was at the end of his career basically. Still scoring goals like crazy was You know I've seen them score and going one time I was there. It was playing that I forget who plan, but anyways he was sliding on his back. The PUCK was in his rate year sliding towards the boards, and just before he crossed the back of the net, he flipped the puck and went in the goalie, staring at him. Any any way over the goal left shoulder into the top left far corner of the net. He was he was he. He was so good with the pocket near the not thank you baby by the way I've just looked up the trade, Mike Gartner and Larry Murphy for Dino CISA rally and Bob Ross. That was not a good trade. March seventh nineteen, eighty, nine, Dino Cicero to the list. And let's see next. We alluded to this player earlier, but we didn't expand on it. So I think it's totally valid, Jerry. You're brainerd. Who was the player? The Minnesota player traded that hurt the boast. for me if you'll Hans Antenna I sure very similar very similar to the Frank Viola trait. Traded them to the mets got a package garbage package that was highlighted by Carlos Gomez..

"Just was like a faucet that wouldn't shut them. Was it really was a heist for tomorrow in the far northern sections in the fifties. But as you get further south, the sixties and seventies. So we're getting there we're getting there. Well, I mean, we've turned the corner room into the tearing a page out the calendar and into Maine and. Merry merry month of may is very month. Some some of the greatest people in the world were born in me. Okay. What's okay? What is your birthday? Friday. Well, happy early birthday. I appreciate it. What what are you going to do to celebrate? I think I'm gonna come into a pregame show where. Blowing the candles. Freaking philosophy is after a certain age. No big deal. Just as long as they keep coming. Well, that's it. I was gonna say don't stop the celebrations of pretty much come to an end. Really? Well. You know, specialist you when you were ten you got a bike or something like that. I mean, what are you get now? Just trust me at this age every birthday. The case that yes. It's being celebrated, but the, you know, you don't have to go out. And celebrate it. No. That's kinda wanna have a day for yourself. Good point as the as the oldest one here in the room. I can tell you that it's always fun to celebrate on your birthday. Yeah. No matter how cranky you made. Years. It'll be the Khalil Mack birthday for me. Jersey number is fifty two. You're a young pup. Come on fact, relate everything sports. I forget. Speaking of sports. So I I can honestly say I didn't have a horse yesterday. Yeah. But actually, did did you really we had we had some fun going on with some friends. Yeah. I chose roadster which didn't do anything. But what I'm Emily named roads. I must ask Andy his is this the first time disqualification like this has happened in the derby first time on race day. There was other one that happened after the race rug, and it was it was a positive test for drugs that was a while ago. Now, I have to convince I didn't see the race because I was at at the ballpark getting ready for for pre pregame show yesterday. But from everything I heard they made the right call. I mean, I know the trainer is considering a an appeal at this point. But this is not just one person's opinion three man group that decides after watching the video what you know, what the penalty three decided all three were they were in agreement. Well, and I have to tell you I did watch. I didn't even know what time the race was on. I walked in. And here's the race was already going. And then you know, there's all the hoopla. For maximum security. And then all of a sudden, it's like hold all tickets in hold all tickets for like twenty two minutes and NBC actually had some of the head cameras in the steward's room as they were reviewing the tape. But I still it wasn't until this morning, actually, where I saw some kind of zoomed in footage or I could see where, you know, the potential blocking foul if you wanna call it that took place, and it was it was actually was the second place horse country house, the Jackie there was the one that I noticed that apparently. And I think there are a couple of others that actually said as well any on the case the country house. It was a sixty five to one. Yeah. So that's got to be one of the record payouts. Tell you. It's the second highest derby history of one thirty to forty. Yeah. I mean, I have to wonder when you have a field of twenty horses. There's going to be some bumping. Yeah. So I mean, isn't this kind of inevitable? You would think too. Because each read that's the other thing it was a real sloppy track. And you don't know of if the horses had adequate footing or hoping if you will. But at the same time Jackie's are responsible like h l you're responsible for your stick. No matter what even if it gets forced into a player's face. And it's a it's a high sticking penalty. And here you're responsible for your horse. Right. And you can't make obvious contact. And sometimes incidental contact goes goes by the board because everybody's doing it. They're like you said there's twenty horses and the track is only so wide, and it's it's money. So it had to be fairly agreed just to even have an inquiry placed and then follow through with well soom. Once you have Jackie complaint. There has to be a review. Yeah. I think the on the board at shows up his inquiry, right? And like, you said hold all tickets, and those that had maximum security were very nervous, and those that had country horse and country house that is and had any kind of money on it at sixty five to one they were like come on. It's gotta be a disqualification. New pair of shoes, you know? Right now. I mean, it was I I appreciate the spectacle therby in all of that. You know, I've played the ponies every once in a while. But there was just I don't know what it was this time. I just kind of came and went and the only thing that became exciting was the fact of the the cube. I actually went one time I went with a bunch of friends in nineteen ninety five I want to say, and it was the same situation. There was a tornado warning the night before and it rained and rain and rain, and I we were on the infield. And it was like a pile a pool of mud, but it was so fun. The the only problem is when you're out there and you're in the infield. You also notice there's horses running around here. What was that all about right, right right track things? But it's fun. It's it is a spectacle. Well, I I mean, I've been a little before. And you know, it's amazing. How TV it becomes so deceptive good looks like it's this huge huge structure. That's out there. It's a big complex because you have to park miles away unless you're a trainer or something of that nature where you can get in or a an owner or VIP because I remember having to get on a golf cart to get back to the car that we were and it was way out there. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, and so we had that we had another cubs come from behind performance. Yeah. How about that? Rather crazy game because the cubs were down five to one. And then Taylor Davis of all people comes up in. It's grand slam. First big-league Homer in. I have to admit. I mean, yeah, I'm a cubs fan. I'd never heard it Taylor. For a little bit last year. Really Victor care teeny is out is out on the injured list now and Davis hit his first year home run. It was grand slam. The last cub to do that. I had to look this up. Kevin Tapani the pitcher nineteen ninety eight in Atlanta. Now, you know, you think your first home run, and it's grand salami. But boy can only go downhill from there. I mean. Yeah. Good point. That but what a game. And and just the way, you know, from the the other day with. With hendrix. And you know, here was a Friday, you know, one twenty game. And it was Friday kind of had a lot of the work done. And I thought about well, maybe I can sneak out, and, you know, watch some of the game watch the end of the game and over. Yeah. Bill Ruth are. He was he was in an editing session, and he comes up to me and he looking at one of the TV's trivia news room. And he goes, wow. It's the ninth inning already. I'm going is. And sure enough I mean eighty one pitch to hit complete game shutout. I mean, he couldn't ask for better better performance. You want to hear some irony? Sure. Was there and attendance Jon Lieber was there. Really? Oh, wow. And he if your member he and Kerry wood back in two thousand one pitched back to back complete game shutouts, but Lieber did his in seventy eight pitches. And that was the fastest in the shortest believe in cubs history at that point, and he happened to be there and Carlos Zambrano was there as well. And he's there few complete games of his own, including a no hitter with the cubs kind of weird that they were both there for that for that spectacle. Well, it was great for Hendrix because I think he needed that. He did. And and it's great for the cubs. We're half game out and can go into first place with a win over the red birds tonight. Yeah, they're they're they're showing the folks in Saint Louis something this. And of course, I I'm not shy about my feelings about the cardinals. So true. I can't help that. That's okay. It is what it is. And kind of pay for those years when I was at Edwardsville too old Busch stadium and buy me a cubs pennant. And then set it on fire. That's really sweet. That's so nice sportsmanship. And how about the socks? Yeah. That was ugly. Yeah. It was it was actually a great start that one nothing in the bottom of the first. And that's when I that's when I last saw part of the game until I looked in glanced at the store, and I think it was nine to one at the point. And you know, what happened in the top of the third any many ban wheel retire. The first few hitters rather easily and then ten straight hits including after two or out. Oh, nine runs on ten straight hits. And then they scored five in the fourth inning and then one in the fifth inning. And that was pretty much all that was needed. The the White Sox scored a run on the first run in the ninth on an Abreu home run. But that was that was pretty much it. Well, this is that kind of up and down up and down season that talking about you get you get hopeful with watching a guy like Benguela. She was had previous majorly experienced put as really not gotten opportunity and now has a really good opportunity in one is first game. As a starter? And then you know had. Tell you the truth. Dare Jackson made a great point yesterday. Because the game started at six ten and shadows were a little difficult up until really about that bottom of the third inning. I kinda wondered about wondered about that a little bit in the cubs game too. Yeah. Hitters hitters like discern way. Hitters the background is in sunshine. It's.
