Revisiting the Archive: Episode 11: Larry Kramer
"I'm Eric Marcus. And this is making a history. It's now eleven weeks since my partner Barney and I began sheltering in place and this past week the official death toll in the United States from covid nineteen rose past one hundred thousand mothers and fathers children grandparents colleagues neighbors and friends people not numbers people. I've talked before in this series revisiting the archive about anger. How it can fuel action? How an anger is partnered with love? It can produce a kind of righteous rage that propels us those of us who lived through the AIDS crisis. Know about it. Some of US learned it from Larry Kramer who died this week in Manhattan where he's lived for. Decades Larry was famous for being one of the first billions to sound the alarm during that last epidemic. The one that began forty years ago he was on the front lines even before aids was called AIDS and became a global epidemic at swept away more than thirty million lives before AIDS. Larry was best known for his work as a screenwriter and author but the virus that was claiming so many lives in the political indifference political negligence that greeted it turned Larry into a very public activist. His friends were dying and he felt compelled to do something more than to just bury the dead and mourn their loss in nineteen. Eighty-two Larry co-founded a gay men's health crisis now known as GM five years later he co-founded act up the AIDS coalition to unleash power. Act Up came to be known for its brilliant use of public protests to bring attention to the epidemic by early nineteen eighty nine. When I I met Larry AIDS take in more than sixty thousand lives. Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious. I approached the door to Larry's apartment in a building that fronts Washington Square Park in New York. City's Greenwich Village. As I said when this episode originally aired I got myself worked up. Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt. We talked about how we both had wanted to find a husband early in life and settle down and that led us back in time to Larry's memories as it confused and Unhappy College student in the Early Nineteen fifties. I pressed record interview with Larry Kramer Thursday January twenty six thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the home of Larry Kramer in New York City. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. When I went to Yale I thought I was the only gay person in the world and tried to kill myself because I was so lonely. Did try to What am I think that was fifty? Three was the year my freshman year. Yeah is awful. I mean I do want to go back that far curious because I was a college student on seventy six desperately unhappy. We're at Vassar College. There were there were a lot of gays. They weren't that many people think there were a lot if there were so many gays. Why was I so unhappy? Miserable person and And deaths seemed very appealing at moments during my freshman year when I was dating a woman in making off the man by in life and fifty three must have been much more difficult than seventy six at Vassar. You can even start in shifty. Three Easter I knew I was gay. I think from the day I was born and I think that there have been I. I now know that there were isolate. They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up. A car drove for like hours before we found a place that was quiet to do it and then he drove me back where you didn't say a word all of that list of yourself. I eight two hundred aspirin. Oh my God talk about slow and Miss. You must have been pretty miserable to swallow two hundred and yours anymore. Will after you wanted out. Was that who knows. It's a scene. I'll never forget the scene of taking pills the Yup and find you're still better. I didn't wake up. I I went to bed and I got scared and I call. The campus. Police came took me to the hospital and put myself and that was in woke then I fell asleep and I woke up in a room with bars and after grace new haven hospital and there. Was this very unpleasant hospital psychiatrist. Who said all right Mr Cramer? Why did you do it and I go fuck yourself or words to that end he said? I'm now you're not going to be let out of this hospital until you tell us why you did it. And I just had a few rubbed me the wrong way and I wouldn't have told who who knew why I did it anyway. So my brother who's always sort of looked after me came and got me out and he was friends with the dean of Freshmen. My brother had been the before me and And it was you know ordinarily when something like that happen you were shipped off to go join the army really in those days. Yeah and then you come back to Yale and you've grown up but they let me stay. If I went to the University of Coyote. Just his name was Dr Fry Clement Fry. And he was about in the sixties he had silver hair and it was a good looking man he whereas reptiles button down shirt and You just knew that. He cared more about Yale and he ever did about you and And I told him of this experience that I had had of had been invited to go to the room of two of my freshman year. Two guys freshman year that I had met they somehow mercifully had found each other and they were living in this room and I was invited for tea or something and I walked into this room and the room. You know how awful freshman rooms are. Well they had done their room and it was painted all black and there was a everything has been taken out of the room. Except you know a low mattress was which was black and there was a perfect coffee table with with a rose in a vase. That was spotlit in a board. And and Mabel Mercer's playing on the phonograph right so I describe this little Dr Fry in Dr Fries. Reaction was I. Don't I wouldn't see those guys anymore factory and that's what Gail was like that's going to so there wasn't there wasn't a local gay student group you to call it was. I mean I love going back to Yale now and this is my real yardstick of of how far we've come even though. I'm always yelling about how we've not come far enough. I go back to Yale and Yale is like the college now and there's the dance every year for well over a thousand gay men and women in in you know across the campus from where I tried to kill myself because I thought I was the only one so that is your yardstick for change. It certainly is. Yeah that thirty years time you were completely alone thirty years. It is. God doesn't long time. So where does that leave us? A lot of change no change well. I guess it's in. It's in my nature to be impatient and I only got politically involved because of AIDS and there is no question that we have lost the war to AIDS and that we've lost and we'll continue to lose a great many people when we did not have to lose and that the speed of research treatment education you name. It has been tragically in an inhumanely. Slow it's an epidemic that need not have happened and that we should have listened There's no question that that enough people knew what was happening. Should've list we'll specifically. You should listen well the community. I mean the gay press the gay leaders. You were there before. It was an epidemic or just as it was becoming. Well I think now we know that even when we found out eighty one it was much bigger than we thought but we thought it was just the beginning right. Eighty one in this very room in August. Eighty one eighty men sat with Dr Freeman keen from Nyu who told us in no uncertain terms exactly what was happening and and he was right at eighty one in. August of eighty one. The New York Times article that alerted. Everybody really was July third eighty one. The New York Times headline was freer. Cancer Semen forty-one homosexuals and said that all the guys had the same history which was a history of of having had all of these sexual diseases. Amoeba was hepatitis A. and B. and mononucleosis syphilis gonorrhea n-name it. When I saw that in the New York Times I was scared. Because I'd had all of that and I guess the penny dropped the English say or the bell rang or something I call Larry. Massu was was it is my friend. Who's a doctor? And who had written some articles? He wrote a health column for the native and had written about it before the Times had and And I guess I've spoken to Him peripherally about it but not it had. The Bell Hasn't Rung Until The Times. That's the way of making you really stood up and say wow of times covers. It has to be real so he said go talked. Alvin to Dr Freeman keen which I did and Alvin who turned out to be gay and we turned out to have mutual friends. Said this is what's happening. You GotTa Stop Fucking. You're someone well known in the Gay Community. You have to do something about it. Somebody's got to go out there and tell them and it was because of that that I invited Larry Math and I and two other guys. Now dead Donald Been Paul. Rapoport invited everyone. We knew to come to this. First Meeting in August include people from from political groups capable? He got on the phone and we call everybody we called. Anyone could think of political people rich people media people doctors none them showed up and It was a good cross section and It was a lot of people didn't believe him. Did you know this was a hot political football when you picked it up or did you expect people to respond to you or to what you have to say that very meeting that night with without the early evening with Alvin so that I mean there are a lot of very nasty questions put him? There are a lot of people saying you know you're a born again How can you make all of these assumptions on the basis of so few cases? And how can you expect to hope community to stop talking and you know there was no virus? Then people say there's no virus now but it certainly wasn't a virus then that didn't come for another couple of years people could say you have no evidence to base this on and anyone say even if there's the slightest possibility well that's what he was saying and that's what I was saying and It wasn't so much the people that Paul Popham and Nathan Fain who came to be my big adversaries and Gamons health crisis. It wasn't so much that they didn't believe or not believe what was happening. Paul had of course lost a couple friends by them and the lover it was that he didn't think it was Jimmy sees or anybody's position to tell anybody else how to live their lives and that people had to make up their own lines so a lot of valuable time was lost. Not BEING THE CONDUIT. I thought I was setting up or funny to help. Set up with others an organization that was going to do one thing and that organization became and still is another. What was what was set up to spread information and to fight to fight to make the system accountable and to spread the word of what was happening and that you know we got a cool it. It was not that at all it was. It became very quickly. It was taken over by the social workers and and then it is now what it is then. It's a social service in a very good social service organization but it again. That's our tragedy. It's an organization that that helps people to die and is not an organization that helps the living go on living and we still don't have an organization to do that is that maybe act up. Bush came along much too late Beverly for never but much too late. I BLAME MYSELF. I I am very cognizant of of a great failure on my part that I did not have the ability to be leader that I did not have the ability to deal with my adversaries and still be friends. God didn't there is a God. Did Not give the gay community leader when the gay community needed a leader and you feel awesome and you failed in that role and I failed in that role. I feel very strongly failed role. What does the future hold? Then I think age is going to get much much much worse than a lot. More people are going to die and I. I hope that one of these drugs is going to do something about it but I never seem to hear of any let up in the number of people who seem to be getting sick and that's very scary and I'm HIV positive. Myself which I've just discovered and Protested the first time for the first time. Yeah I you know for the first time. It's it's come home to me in an even more personal way. That my days maybe numbered in a way that. I didn't think of before and that's made me real bad more than angry. I find myself going back to act up which I haven't done in a long time because I got fed up with Must be renewed personal personal interest. Give their fighting. Takes me out of my negatively? Makes me makes me just sort of being touched by their positive. Ism helps me a lot of things I haven't asked you. Is there anything that would like to comment on? So I don't feel like I've been at my best today with you so I'll come back feel a little specious than what specious feel a little scattered and what I've said so I don't know what I love being gay and if I have been an am critical it's only. I think we are very special people incapable of so much more and take a long time to be able to to say that for different generation than many. You know you're born what year thirty five and I'M THE GENERATION. That was sent off to shrinks because shrinks then thought they could change you and you were expected to change and it took a long time for me to come to terms with my homosexuality and a lot of shrinks now having come to terms with it and liking it and then having to face. Aids is almost like a Brat nevertheless. It's I think we are very lucky. I just I. I think being a gay man even today with AIDS is is is a wonderful thing. I love being gay after I turned off my tape recorder we talked about. Larry's health asides being HIV positive. Two-thirds of his liver had been destroyed by the hepatitis. B virus. His doctorate told him that he had maybe three years to live. So legacy was very much on Larry's mind. He told me that he saw his work as legacy. But if the risk of disagreeing with Larry Not that he's here to argue with me I think. His biggest legacy was saving lives to the activism. He inspired and his warnings about AIDS which were heard by more than a few of US including me a lot of us our lives to Larry Kramer. Larry outlived his doctor's prognosis by several decades. Experimental drugs a liver transplant in. Two thousand one saves his life. Larry also got his wish to find a husband settling down with David Webster in one thousand nine hundred ninety one they married on July twenty fourth two thousand thirteen. Larry Kramer died. This past. Wednesday may twenty seven twenty twenty. He was eighty four. Actually there's another memory of Larry I'd like to share before I go. I visited with Larry. One more time after that. Nineteen eighty-nine interview. It was at lunch the following summer with my mother in the Hamptons on eastern Long Island where Larry was renting a house. There were both in their fifties younger than I am now. I have no memory of how that came about or how my mother came to be a part of it. I'm guessing she asked and she was known to be insistent but what I remember clearly is how much they enjoyed. Each Other's company to Jews of a generation that spawned so many fighters for social justice mother included spoke the same language and I had the privilege to sit back and listen. How lucky was I? I don't believe in heaven but like to of the two of them meeting up for lunch again looking down on US wondering how we've made such a fucking mess of things and urging us to fight for our lives and the future of our country many thanks to the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation for their ongoing.

Last night baseball kicked off a little bit of a delay there in Washington but it was baseball. There was baseball played last night, plus you had the giants and dodgers who had the cutout fans? which was a little weird but I don't know I'll get used to everything eventually I still think they just need to. We talked Bruce King about this. We have our interview rob king coming up later on just cut away shots of old games of people in the stands like just have a bunch of shots that you can go to people like eating nachos.

It's back with A. Band of playoff format will get to that in just a second, but first the happy total of last night two games to kick off the major league baseball. Sixty Games sprint to the finish season. The Yankees visiting the nationals they win a game short to five and a third innings, because of rain four to one Garrett Cole went off five innings for the visitors. One hit one run. It was earned one walk and five strikeouts Max Scherzer of the nationals struck out eleven in five and a third innings, but also gave up six hits, walked four, and gave up four earned runs in the nightcap. The dodgers beat the giants eight to one despite the dodgers learning shortly before the game. The Clayton Kershaw wasn't going to be able to pitch because of back stiffness, he was replaced by Dustin. made the dodgers ended up using five pitchers? To beat the giants prior to the start of the season last night, it was announced that the MLB and its players association had agreed. To expand the playoffs from ten to sixteen teams for the twenty twenty season that now means fifty three percent of the thirty teams are going to make the playoffs in addition to all the division winners, all second-place teams in six divisions now qualify, and then the seventh and eighth spot in each league will be determined by the best record. The first round will be played September twenty ninth through October, the second, It'll be four three-game series in each league with all of the Games at the home of the higher seed. And then the rest of it will be as it has been five game series filed by Seven-game National an American League Championship Series Seven Game World Series We talked about this yesterday morning I didn't Belabor the point because I didn't think it was gonNA. Happen. But. Too many s why the hell it is, but why the hell not this summer, right? Yeah Yeah I. Just I don't know you know. They used to have four teams in the playoffs. Yeah, I I think it's too many that hate to see them one hundred and sixty two game season, but if you're GONNA play sixty games up, maybe isn't going to give you. The the best reveal of who the better teams are, and they gotTA. They need the money ran. They're like. You know. See. This owners have suffered. Chaired the poor owners who can't commiserate with them? Fired for St Louis Tonight to take on the cardinals. Jonas Grove Against Jack Flaherty. did mentioned a moment ago. It is a sixty game season a sprint to the finish. What is that going to be like? What will that entail How do we wrap our heads around that well believe it or not during spring training two point. Oh Stephen brought of the pirates came up with a pretty good way to interpret that. I think that's a pretty well. I. I think that everybody talks about. Since it's a shorter season, kind of anything can happen. Everybody has good sixty stretches. Everybody has bad sixty again stretches, but the way that we're looking at. It the way that we're approaching it is. I think really smart. Is that imagine if we were at this point in a regular season? And it was, we were a hundred. You know what is a hundred games into season right for playing sixty. And every single team was tied we thirty teams tied for the exact same record with six games left a crazy of the season. and. There's so much that can happen in such a short amount of time, but also it's sixty games I mean you have enough time. If you go on a little bit of a rusty, still have enough time to bring it back, so We're really excited because you know it's a kind of a fun idea. Just imagine hundred hundred games the season. Everybody's time you insane, so that's kind of how we're approaching it like. It's a sixty game playoff race sprint. From the get go. Yeah I mean it'd be two games. He's little off onto math, but I get where he's coming from. That would be more down the stretch. They come. You know everybody's. You've played four months and you. You're still not out of it. That's that's where we are so good job. Bucks stated at this long. The season opener tonight. Louis. Musk robes going to get the ball. He joined our show this week and He talked about how as unprecedented as everything has been in spring training, two point Oh, and how it's going to be in terms of what the players are asked to do with the protocols and everything else Moscow told us the pirates are going to be maintained and committed to doing what's required. That's one of the things that we really focused to spend. Is the not complain and. Gripe about all the little things we have to do. That might seem like you know extra stuff and you know it's a little bit more time, consuming and you know something you have to work in your day, but we were professionals and treating this as another aspect of the game. You know we're going to be the best at it and we're GONNA face it every day and do it. We're not gonNA complain about it and I, really think that helps with the mentality, the team and the energy that we bring every day. You know we're not. Everyone's not complain and Bitch and to one another or folks getting better, and we're just accept that this is all stuff that we have to do. It's just part of the game so. I like that approach In general you can bitch and complain, or you can deal right. We're all somewhere that we don't WanNa be more often than we used to be. But you know, put your head down and persevered through at the pirates finalized the roster yesterday. Their thirty man roster includes sixteen pitchers and fourteen position players initially bench Barrington new GM did resume yesterday, and I asked him. If this was going to be a team that assuming things work the way the pirates think they might will this be a team that wins games tend to nine or one to nothing. I would be very acceptable to us. Don't care how we get there. that said I know as we get into the season you know every day we hit the field. We need to be prepared and believe we can win and then whatever the outcome is. We're GONNA. Come back the next day, and and and and find ways to keep getting better and focus on our coaching focus on our preparation focus on our process over time. We believe that will put us in the best position you see a particular strengths or to initially. Yeah! I, mean I think our strength is that we've got a group of young players, both on the position players side and pitching side who are? In the upward arc of their career, and so we expect that means we'll continue to see improvement over time and Groti seeing some of that here in spring training, even relative to March We've seen guys. Take a step forward. Expect that will continue So we're. We're just were so excited to get two games because we know how important games are for this particular group to have a chance to actually you know face, Major, League competition and We've got a really good pitcher going out there tomorrow night. Excited to see Joe Pitch and we also know we're facing a really good pitcher. unexcited Sierra hitters. Get that opportunity facing? Pretty revealing stuff from the gentleman's. We're going to hear some more from Charrington throughout today, but if you're listening closely when he's talking about the process and getting. And Upward Arc I think what he's telling you is. We ain't there yet, and you know as a doozy acid because everyone has been as excited as everyone has been as an as determined to prove most people wrong as everyone has spent I, think Ben. Sherrington kind of tipped his hand yesterday. This is a team in developments got a lot of young guys just playing against Major League competition is hopefully going to make them better, but As much fun as that baseball back I'm not optimistic that the pirates. Go over their win total which most places twenty four and a half or twenty four and a half I think their bullpen is just not ready for primetime time, and that's something that's going to kind of kick in the ass every day. It's GONNA be tough to work around that, but We'll see what they can come up with starting tonight in Saint. Louis really excited that baseball is back. Penguins were on the ice in cranberry last night. Intra squad scrimmage number three head coach Mike Sullivan said that Sidney Crosby was quote unfit to participate, but crosby did skate again on his own. Thursday afternoon prior to Thursday night's festivities. The black team in the goal team tied at three goals apiece again, They split it up a little bit this time, even that out a little bit more jared McCann Jason, Zuck, her and Patrick Marleau scored for the black. Team Anthony Angelo Teddy Blogger and connor sherry. For the, gold? Team and Among Mike Sullivan's observations afterward, guys interesting on Patrick Marlowe He has three goals in the last two intra squad scrimmage is. He's playing a leadership role. You know they didn't have him very long. They traded for him and then things kind of shut down, but Mike Sullivan said yesterday. That Marlo is indeed the guy that he is. The penguins thought he was in terms of leadership on and off the ice. The ability to still be an impact player. At an advanced age and fit that makes the penguins better in Sullivan's line. Was this quote? I think the guys would like nothing more than to see Patrick attain one more ultimate goal. So he got that working as you go into the Toronto bubble, the let's win one for Patty, if not for Caney or Zuccari your? I'm telling you. That line has the potential to be an absolute force that that's like. HP K. Two point Oh with McCain Horn quest and he can still skate. That act that line could do. I'm with you know son in line. We'll see. They got one more year. Squad. Saturday. They go to Toronto on Sunday and in Philly on Tuesday and at at and T. sports in that building. Make it official yesterday. They are going to televise the flyers exhibition game at four o'clock on Tuesday in Toronto so Mark Account I know you were you were? Eager to fly out if that was to be the case it is. Thanks Mike Thousand News top of the Hour Valerie. What are you gonNA be talking about? Well swingers, or having a real tough time handling the pandemic and social distancing. We'll talk about that coming up. Rob King from eighteen sports nets joining us later this morning Sean Collier tells you about the latest movies out there Jimmy Learn virtual copy house, and if you missed it yesterday, our visit with big from pardon, my take. That's next year on dealing show joining us right now from pardon, my take. It's are from big cat big. CAC morning. How are you man? Good morning everyone sports are back feels great feels like we finally have made it. Even though I'm sure we're going to have this corona virus thing for like ten more years, but if feels like we finally made it. I'm a feeling great. How bad does the marketing team at MLS feel when we're all saying sports are back and they're like. We've been playing for a month. Where have you guys been? Not only have they been playing for a month. But their entire Hashtag and marketing like scheme has been literally mls his back. They're trying to hit us over the head with sports team back and we're like Nah not really like come on. You like I I turned on a couple of days ago. 'cause I put a little money on I'm like come on like it's fine like yeah. Okay I see. There's a ball. It's moving around McGrath's. Being back like you can try all you want, but sports aren't back yet. Yeah. You know what it was. That was the one sport because we don't have quite the affinity for it in the states like they do elsewhere if they would. If you were watching a game with fans I think it would make a big difference having to all the sudden fall in love with sport, and not being able to see them perform in front of their fans is a tough ask. Yeah I honestly like not get too deep into soccer, but I I do like watching European soccer I like watching the EPL awake watching some of the other leagues, and if you like watching those leagues, and then you try to watch molest, it is a big difference. It's like it's like when you know. ESPN will put on like division, three or division to college football at the end of the season. SEASON, it's okay, but it's not Alabama versus number. You know what I mean like. You're not wanting same thing, and just like it's if you're not a big college football fan, and then you go to the NFL you watch NFL versus you know college. There's a big difference so I. Think it's hard to start with something. That's not the top of the Line Sport and unfortunately and is back, but who cares. Our European soccer fans in the United States, the hipster version of sports fans. Oh. Yeah, although I don't know what's what's the level after like hipster? Because it's become, they were the hipsters like four or five years ago. Now it seems almost borderline mainstream like it's. It's like the neighborhoods been completely gentrified now. It's weird like now, right? I I. Don't know what the next phase is, but I. Think you you see the backlash now you have the original hipsters getting mad at people who are now picking teams overseas and going to the like eight am so yeah, that's a whole weird culture and I've tried to dip my toe into, but I've been unsuccessful. Baseball starting tonight I. Mean it couldn't be more excited for this plus I love the the matchup with Sherzer. Call. How many how many pets are you going to have place by? First, pitch, tonight! Oh all of them all of them well, I have been betting on these games beforehand. You know like the the exhibition. Games you know just like every other thing. I convinced myself with my own really trying. They'll probably hit a bunch of home over. Your brother. Never Works but yeah. I'll I'll definitely be exciting game although I don't want to be the the you know the proverbial turn in the PUNCHBOWL, but I did see there's going to be rain, which should be so perfect if this got rained out and we're just sitting at our TV's. Because like I don't know about you. Guys I'm not I'm not I. Don't Really Watch any baseball outside of the cubs. I'm not tuning yeah. WHO Random Yankees game, but tonight I absolutely watch the whole thing because it's just the feeling of opening day, even though it's weird, and it is servers coal so to have that rain. Doubt would be so so disappointed. When I was deep into fantasy, I would watch everything because you really have ownership like you feel like. You, know yeah, you got something to root for and every game, but I stopped play fantasy baseball. Because that is like that's like more of a commitment than being married. Oh full-time job. Is play fantasy. Baseball. It is a fulltime job I used to when I work into a desk job. I would do more fantasy baseball prep than my actual job and I was like well I mean. At the end of the season, it could be like five hundred bucks so I'm. Trying to do the back of my head. That like I'm Kinda. Getting paid to play baseball I was don I, never one. Mark Davis the owner of the raiders was recently quoted after saying he was upset that the NFL didn't move them to Los Angeles. For too long. I've lost games before. That's how I live my life. You lose on Sunday. You're pissed. You go to PF. changs on Monday have lunch, and then you're onto next week. Mark Davis is love of PF changs is. So incredible it, it is unmanly a endless love that he has for PF Chang. How have they not made him a mascot? At this point? Like? How has he not become like? Their two cans Sam. I actually I loved it. He hasn't because he's doing it for the love of the game. He's not in it for the publicity. He's not in it for All the trappings of becoming a PF changs like superfan. He just wants to go there sitting his corner. Have Mongolian beef and be left alone I I. Love I love. Just, because it's like. You know obviously he's. He's very rich guy and he's got his problems probably aren't as Everyone's got problems, but the idea that Mark Davis like hey had a bad day. You know what can fix this. A little PF changs, and then we'll be feeling good. It's all it's such a simple view of life. And I don't know what it is, but the yeah, the fact that it's PF changs, which is like such a funny concept in its own, because the chain, high end, Chinese, restaurant and mark. Like I got this, I got this great Clive Star place that I know it's called PF Chang. Now he's living. To? Vegas does have incredible incredible food I, know sometimes we laugh about it, but they do have. Edible chefs in credible food and he's like. I got just the spot for everyone like we're gonNA take. We're GONNA. Take everyone to PF changs on me and like. I love also PF changes like the they've found a way to make. You think that like it totally reasonable to have Chinese food entrees be like thirty five dollars. You're like Oh, well, if chain. It has it had to have been really hard for him to to not be able to dine in? I'm sure that they probably like opened one specifically for him, but I'm wondering like when he eats there if he wears those white jeans. Does he wear like the the case you get when you go to get your haircut? Because yes, you could really get some. With the crispy honey shrimp. Oh my God. That'd be so perfect if he has like the though he has the same, I would assume the same waiter waitress, and then they come out. They just build them up and the whole thing like he's getting his haircut which you might be getting his haircut. PF changs well now that. It's not like a grain. Banks, yes Oh my God, that's perfect. That is perfect, but I saw marcy. I don't know what listen. He's just one of the most fast and guys I've ever seen and you know. He drives running this guy and his Mini van all the time he's. He's a multimillionaire NFL owner who drives around in a minivan and Yeah, he's. He's just a fascinating fascinating guy. I'm just happy that he is still going to change. The world feels like it can get back with Marc. Still just banging out that PFC PF PF CHANGS PF changs. We make that as well, but yeah I do why. There's gotta be a PF changs. Yeah yes. That's my dream by the way that is like. If you ask me my my pinnacle like my the one guest I would love to have. It is Mark Davis Outta PF. Changs and like we were just put on them. We wouldn't even interview them. I would just mike up the whole table and be like. Let's just have watch like. Let's just have lunch exactly how? How you usually have lunch, a throw in a couple of questions here and there bless you. Sit Back, pretend. The cameras aren't on and just get him in his natural habitat. It's like when they do the planet earth and they go like deep deep in the rainforest. They're like here's a fog. We've never seen before. That's what I WANNA to do with Mark Davis. You could have Richard. ATTENBOROUGH narrated. It would be great. David at whatever the English you know. Yeah, he you know he's got like he's got hacks at PF. Changs to. We're like okay well. Let's get lettuce wraps a start and he's like no, no, no, no, no, no, no! You don't start with lettuce routes you end with lettuce wraps it. Here's the reason why like he definitely has strategy about eating there and I mentioned that Mark Davis would be a good mask pf changs, but it strikes me that he'd be a better mascot for the raiders. Why isn't the Raiders Mascot? Just a big NERF version of Mark Davis wearing white jeans and a white Turtleneck with the banks. It's so true. It's so true he would be the perfect, yeah. Like he's. A I think if you if you made him like monetize him, for lack of a better word, but like made him that Mascot Muffins version of Mark Davis. He actually becomes kind of kid friendly. I don't know if he's kid-friendly right now, but. Right so. It would be perfect I. I'm in for that. All right, we had the discussion to start the show today about hallucinogenics. If you are hanging out with your friends, let's say like a lake house and everybody's going to do one version of hallucinogenics. Would you choose mushrooms, acid or Mushrooms Mushrooms for sure. Absolutely I mean have would again. Yes, well, I don't know. Thirty, five, thirty five is a little too old. I think you get to a point where it's like I don't know if I need to be thinking about everything in life deeply here like thinking about my. Yes, would probably be bad, yeah. Right? Yeah, acid is the thing that soon as you have one ounce of responsibility, you can't go near it. Right right so yeah, maybe maybe still mushrooms, but it's it has been a long time, but we actually had. We had creed Bratton on the show yesterday, and he told an unbelievable story about doing after onstage in the late sixties in San Francisco and just like losing his minded and he. He didn't know his backstory all the things that he's lived through. He really is his character in the office. Oh. Yeah, yeah, totally he was. What was the bandies in grassroots? Yeah, yes, yes, and he got the album out now it's like Whoa. How did you know albums a lot out? Yeah he's he was a pretty goofy Guy Kinda finagled his way into the being a regular on the office to from what I understand. Yeah I. I don't know about you, but have you kept like you still watch the office? I, do I actually I started it season one for the quarantine I just started watching it the perfect like sitting down for dinner. Because you know everyone has that moment where they sit down? and they're like all right well. What are we gonNa Watch because there's nothing on, TV so you just go through Netflix's for two hours and waste your entire night going through. netflix's finding something terrible to Washington. Sit on your phone and and half watch it and be like well. That was unsatisfying, so the half that I found was if you sit down for dinner. Just pop on, you know we just went through the office. You know, watch two or three episodes, and then you then you can maybe find a movie or something, but it's the perfect. Gateway into later on tonight. Yeah I screwed up. I leaned on way too heavily pre pandemic so once the pandemic. Like I was already kind of saturated, but I've annoyed these guys with this last two days. I'm telling you right now if you haven't watched a loan yet. They have season six only on Netflix. And then you can catch all of them on history channel Dude. That show is bad ass. They just stick ten people in the middle of nowhere in extreme conditions, and they give him cameras. They film yourself last. One standing gets five hundred grant. Go Okay I'm in on that. I'm in on that, I also will recommend. I just finished outcry on on showtime anytime so that that was It's about a high school football player in Texas, who was falsely accused of some pretty heinous crimes. It's a good watch because it really just shows how screwed up our justice system can be like like to the core. yeah. big cat, giving you weekend viewing materials. Should the baseball games get rained out? Let's hope they don't. You're right, man. That would be the perfect. Cove era. Just, Motumbo Swat no more fun for you. Yes No nope. NOPE, Nope, to sit up and watch the giants and the dodgers who like who cares, but we'll after sit there and be like. Oh, gotTa Watch this because I got to feel something. Last thing a Mongolian beef is your go-to a PF Chang. I think so I, haven't been in a long time I. Take you just have to be kind of a a real Weirdo to go to PF Chang but Really. I mean you can go to steak? House that might. Even go to cheesecake cracker because they got everything on the menu, but like go to a high end chain and I love chains like I love Chili's. I love like going because the. High end one I don't know it's just a different vibe I. Think you have to be a real Weirdo to do that? Yeah I'm telling you I'm old enough to remember. When PF changs first came out, it was a celebrity hotspot. Particularly in Vegas, there were two of them in Vegas, and Tiger Woods and his old crew were always there. Every celebrity hung out at PF changs when it first came around before it was in every mini mall. In America, it was a big deal, but now it's the kind of place that Mark Davis drives as many up to and hangs out and has lunch with his. With his old cellphone. All the all the celebrities. All the hot spot was sucked out of it as soon as Mark Davis started showing up with. Great for the thirty for thirty on on PF. CHANGS cooking. I love going there. It was awful and then one day we bump. And he had parted, he had been there ten days in a row.

A experience will be tailored to serve local guests. New York Congresswoman Alexandria Cossio. Cortez says she was going to let the incident with Florida Congressman Ted Yoho go until she heard them apologize for it on Wednesday. She said on the floor yesterday morning. Is apology was little more than excuses? She was particularly bothered by the Republican using his wife and daughters as shields for his bad behaviour Yoho. Allegedly says she was. Was Disgusting for believing poverty leads to crime and allegedly called her a quote, unquote effing bitch after a confrontation on the Capitol steps a Cossio, Cortez says it's language. She's heard plenty of times riding subways in new. York City Yoho apologized for the abrupt manner of his conversation. He said that was disrespectful, but he said he will never apologize for his passion. That's awesome I? Know I called you a whole bill. But. I won't apologize for my passion about how big of an a hole you are. I can't expect you to Randy. You're just passionate. That's what I am. I'm passionate. Your whole and I'm passionate. One point man. Now, my wrong I always thought we should expect better behavior out of our leaders to set examples. Yes, I am I am I? Believing that! I mean you just not been paying attention. just to think that hasn't shifted greatly. In! The recent past. That's the way it should be though. For sure? Yeah outlook built. It wasn't like Bill Clinton was the most admirable guy in the world. No I. Don't care what your your denomination is like the ear part it, we. Leadership positions should set the standard I think. Maybe, that the differences val that it used to be an aberration, and now it's the norm. Used to really stick out like a sore thumb when it happened, and now it's just like owning the other side. Yeah! And nobody really wants to cop to you know their own leaders are their own party affiliates doing things that are maybe unbecoming of the office. I mean that's the point with with Bill Clinton is like yeah. He talked a great game. He was a good speaker. There was the the the veneer of him being a good person, but now it seems like that might have been. A facade with. An infestation behind it. Is there anyone who's genuinely good. Or is it I mean put on the show? I think people hate AFC, but I don't think she's a bad person like I. Think she actually is like on the side of good, and you can disagree with her politics. I don't think she's a terrible person who would go up verbally assault somebody on the steps of the Capitol like this guy or or make fun of you know their constituents from wearing masks. Masks like Matt Gaetz did like there. There are some people who are just inherently awful and it works. It's a type of politics that work, so if you see success in doing it, you're going to double down and keep doing it so by being like obstinate all the time and just being a an obnoxious jackass is getting you votes. They're gonNA. Keep doing it. And here's a maybe a harder truth to swallow. They might just be the reflection of us like they represent us and right now. We're not doing great like it. It's just. If you walk around? Like everybody, is you know you see all these videos of people just fighting in the streets and it's like was this. Is this how it's supposed to be? I just wanted to. Store. Three people as of earlier this week have been killed. In mask disputes. I mean I don't know why today I. Feel really just down about the state of this country. Oscillate acute emergency. Yeah. I think that's why I have gravitated to that show alone because there's something about the escape. Pretty Soon I've been I've ever learn how to do stuff because I. Think we're all going to be out there in the woods. And we're going to have to know how to. Put Up. Our Gill Nets. Kill slugs and eat the right kind of Muskrat. Somehow it feels safer in the middle of the Arctic then. A. Little Bit, you know. We're so broken I don't know I need some yeah. Well. Things! Maybe if we double down on this and do more of what we're doing, it'll turn around me just to get worse before it gets better.

Derek Shelton it'll be the first time the bucks play for Shelton in a game that matters, but according to starting pitcher Derek. colander pirates have already become. Derek Collins team. Or Dirk shelves team. It's awesome I don't know the one thing I will say is I. Don't know what it was like before but I can tell you that the way that Sheltie and the staff Oscar all those as is seriously. It's been a lot of fun around these guys to keep things loose. He makes sure work. Any. Make sure we're prepared where we need to be. He's on top of it and. The thing that's going to suck as we WANNA, make sure it should sucks. SARIC is going to be tough is making sure we get his first win? Right out the gate. I think that's always been one of those things. It's tough anytime. Somebody gets that first opportunity. It takes a second, but I think With the hunger that these guys got into the atmosphere that he brings into your with the clubhouse and everything I think. Hopefully we can get that win right away, so we can get that done in certain on the rest of the business for him. But he he really is like. There's. A Lotta great managers, and the way he handles things in the way. He's got this clubhouse I'm not kidding, it's. It's very very fun to beer. There's no doubt about it. And Derek the throughout Spring Training two point. Oh has been expressing how much she likes the vibe in the Camaraderie and the spirit of the pirates and all that stuff. None of that gets the outs into seventh eighth ninth INNING, but We'll see. We'll see what the pirates could turn it into. all elaborated about Shelton a guy who's paid his dues as a coach with Cleveland Tampa Bay Toronto last year as the bench coach in Minnesota. Derek. Is a particular fan of dirt Shelton's all in hands on approach, I just think he's bringing that that vibe of. Being like the player being out there interacting with this. Whenever we go do a drill. He's involved I. Mean I saw I don't know who it was the article out, and he was running doing the pickoffs. I wasn't there for it, but I saw. That should show you how how much she loves this team and how involved he is, he is in it with us every single time. We do something whether it's. OFF DRILLS PFP's standing in the box, doing the stuff with the catchers. I mean he is. They're involved in the action. I mean that's something you love to see. As a manager is a guy that's truly involved with your team not just stands on the side and watches. I don't know if you guys saw a believe. It was the post gazette ran a picture of. Derek Shelton playing the runner in in a pickoff drill and getting getting caught in a rundown such that it was He's done apparently a lot of stuff like that he's. He's involved guy with his players and he talked about why. That's the case this week. Now I kind of think. That's who I am you know it's. It's the way you know. My coaching style was I. Hope it's the way my managerial style was. I mean I appreciate that he said that about the base running drill. Guys sought got going one way, and there was zero chance that I was gonna be able to stop and go the other way without completely blowing out both Ami's but. It's always been fun for me to be part of those things into be engaged in the drills because I think the players like that they like the communication, and then also on top of it. We can use some of those some of those times as teaching moments. Mike, it reminded me seeing him. Run like that reminded me of Jon Gruden. Running back and forth doing drills in the last hard knocks like just getting out there with the guys getting after it i. mean players responded that big time and I'm not exactly sure why, but. It's a hit. I think it's because it's funny, and it's a little self, deprecating and it it takes the coach off the pedestal Todd Haley used to try to play bump and run in quarterback wide receiver drills when he was the offensive coordinator, the steelers and you watch. And, you kind of laughed like okay this all right. He doesn't mind being the butt of the joke or showing us that you know he appreciates what we're trying to do here I. Dirk Shelton has been. Really entertaining just on these stupid zoom things that we've been reduced to doing it. I haven't been in the same room with the Guy I've talked to him. On an IPAD, and and he's he's engaging on an IPAD I can't imagine the affected. He has face to face. If if you can still be face to face during the pandemic parts also have a new general manager bench Sherrington. He's not a first time GM, but it is his first season with the pirates, and he's already leaning heavily on his first year skipper. It's been a an unprecedented level and of just. inputs and challenges and You know situations. That Major League manager. Just hasn't had to face before. A none of us has had to face before and to see him were with us through that in a way where his energy is positively is kind of focus, still on the task at hand, which is to put our players and staff in the best position succeed has never wavered his positively through that his sense of humor through that has been helpful, probably from even at times so Yeah, it's. Not Easy not easy for anybody I again. I've said this before I know. It's worth repeating though that. was imagining him back in. February and March getting the chance to manage that first game in front of family in Tampa and then. In front of his grew up in Chicago and then ultimately back home in Pittsburgh that changed, but We'll try to make it special form anyway. Box at the cardinals tonight bench.

It's all coming up here on the morning show. It's Randy Bam. The morning show Sean Collier joining us with some reviews of movies streaming currently on the worldwide Web John Good Morning. How are you? I'm alright. Yes, if you get tired of strange client base ball this weekend, there will always be. Yeah, you didn't like the aesthetic of last night's baseball debut. I enjoyed it and I'm going to be watching it. I found every attempt to make it feel normal. made it feel so much less normal like there's no level at which oh? There's a cardboard cutout of a baby behind mookie Betts. His head. That doesn't make it better. Right. Some of the crowd noise is a little weird, but I don't know when you have it on Canada in the background, which is how I had I watched the first couple of the nats in in the Yanks, and then I just started doing stuff and had it on, so it was nice to hear the crowd noise, and whatever sort of the ambient sound they were pumping through the broadcast. but I still think that what they should do. Just cut away to shots of games from the past with people eating in the stands so every time they got away from the people sitting in a Ballpark, having a hot dog. Either that or recruit the field of dreams, ghosts get the old ghost ball players. They can't. They don't have to worry about the virus. Well, one of the cool things that they did last night for the dodgers game was they had a cardboard cutout of brody Stevens a comic who? Passed away so technically. They kind of did have at least a cardboard ghost but you know I guess you can just pick whoever you want and make a cardboard cutout or give them money contribution, and they'll put you behind home plate. Like your marlins man. I mean if it can be anybody, let's get Freddie Jason Michael Myers and they're tried to unnerve the opposing batter. Will. Tell us what you got lined up for the weekend here. Speaking of a scary films, the rental is fundamentally scary movie about renting an AIRBNB which makes sense because if you've ever stayed in one the first moment you take your pants off, you think I, wonder if they're watching me right. They're probably not I, WANNA. Go on record as saying. I think very few AIRBNB owners are peeping toms, but it occurs to you at some point that you don't really have any way of knowing that right like you just WanNa say. If anyone's monitoring me right now. It's not going to be anything good. Just go about your business wherever you are. In the film to couples rent a fancy house for getaway weekend. They have an okay time until they discover. The camera in the shower sings escalate quickly from there. This is the first movie directed. By Dave Franco you know him. He's the Franko who people still want to have around. And it feels a lot of the time like you know. What an actor figuring out how to direct I. Mean This. This happens many times a year. Somebody moves behind the camera. This is like that. He's got some ideas. He has some things to offer that he's good at. He doesn't necessarily have all of the tools just yet. His cast Allison Brie his cast bails him out. The rental is probably worth watching. As you know a nice quick, little thriller and if nothing else a good reminder, you don't need to take another couple on your vacation. It seems like a good idea at first split the cost, but someone's going to be traveled grumpy. You'RE GONNA. Get annoyed with them, and if you get stopped by a murderer, you're giving them twice as many victims. That's no good. John I'm wondering. Is this movie based on that The New Yorker article from two thousand. Sixteen Gay Talese wrote, and it was controversial as to how true it was about the motel owner in Aurora Colorado who set up a motel so that he can watch everybody having sex, and then he saw murders, and he saw all kinds of crazy stuff over twenty years. I. Remember that article was fantastic and I. I don't know if I hope that it's true because it was fascinating or hope that it's not true because this man was a monster. I think if it were based on that. It would have had not spoil anything. If it were based on that, it would have had a more interesting ending. 'cause okay well. I liked the rental it kind of peters out towards the end, not on the level fascination of that story so I I think possibly a bit of inspiration, but more. Just you know the. There's something weird about the airbnb thing. You're just going into someone's house acting like you're in a hotel. That's UNCANNY. Yeah, it is Kinda strange? Okay? What is first cow? First cow is a quiet indie drama about the Oregon territory in the mid eighteen hundreds, which was a surprise because I assumed it was about a cow who had moved into the White House. I would definitely watch that movie and this year I think about voting for the cow sure that. America Mubin. The cow would be great for farm subsidies. It would be fun No. This was the big indie movie. Film Festival Darling type that was about to come out when theaters shutdown. It's out now on Amazon Google Apple. There's two guys who become friends. They start stealing milk from the cow. That's around to make biscuits. And that's pretty much it. You know it's lovely and beautifully shot and nice and poignant but. Nothing happens. I got the feeling that. If I got up for a snack, the characters would have just politely waited for me to come back. It feels like one of those critical awards. Darling tight movies. People can't stop talking about you know in the film nerd circles, but most viewers are just gonNa find a little bit slow. You'RE NOT GONNA. Be Mad at it. It isn't definitely a good movie. You're just gonNA spend a Lotta. Time checking your phone. This is one file away. If it gets nominated for every Oscar, catch up with then it's. It's just a little slow. All right. What about in Pentagon for? A brutal horror movie with a made up word title and pedagogy reminds us of the universal truth. If you inherit a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, do not stay the night depending on where you are in the world, there will either be ghosts, demons or people who want your skin. And in this case, it's all three. We're in a remote village in Indonesia to young woman. Go out to find out about this home they think is there's it doesn't go well for them. This is a really good movie. It is just incredibly dark and hard to watch. If you're not bothered by anything, it's IT'S I. Recommend it, but going to need to be made of pretty stern stuff to get through in pedagogy or yeah I, don't I? Don't know that I need to see that right now. Is there anybody of note in the movie? No it's an Indonesian film you know a by an acclaimed director over there. WHO's looking for his big breakthrough? This is probably not going to be in a again. Just because it's so brutal if you want horror, that's fun. I'm going out to riverside drive in North Christine. John Carpenter's Christine as part of cars that kill people double feature though that's where I'm going to be. Whatever happened to the actor who's in Christine, he was also in back to school and then nothing. Oh Yeah. What's that guy's name? I just saw back at school, too. I don't know he's so creepy.

Can you imagine that quick of a turnaround today I mean. ACDC had made a big dent in America with their previous album, Nineteen seventy-nine highway to hell, and some of the ideas for songs on black came together on that tour. Here's AMAS young and the early stages of songs that would make it onto back and black. Malcolm had a couple of ID's specially the back in black with the title track and I'd been fiddling around with little bits of the. You shook me, so you know there was a few of the ideas that we had in place, so it sort of started. The inspirational stayed especially back in black in Malcolm had these ritzy said he couldn't get out of his head, so he had him on type in e. played them to mean he said. What do you think I fought? Hey, you know the great. Right after Bon Scott's death, they did consider hanging up, but we're convinced not to by family and friends and. As we just said wasted no time in holding auditions Johnson, who used to front the band? Gordy one out and the band went into the studio in Nassau in the Bahamas in April and May with producer Mutt Lang, who produced highway to hell, though some of the musical ideas were born, while Bon Scott was still alive. The band opted for some fresh lyrics in the album's title. Track and cover were attribute to Bon Scott. That was our way of Saloon bunged sting. We didn't want to draw job a tragedy, so we've figured that was the best tribute we could do, so we made black as the mark of respect when somebody passes away, that was the idea of was a lot of people actually at the time when we first said he wanted. You know you can't do then. People Don, light that. Keeps a negative thing, but for us. It meant something and that's what we stuck by. Back in black went to number four on the billboard chart.

PUCK's going here today on the morning show because it is opening day for the buck. Does actually opening night tonight in Saint Louis at? We've got another Penguin Inter squad scrimmage to breakdown Fauria, let's start with the pirates who open against the cardinals. Great. Story Franchise Great Environment Saint Louis. Joe Must Grove against. Jack Flaherty We had an opportunity to interview Joe Muss Grove on the morning. Show this week and one of the things that really got my attention was. Must growth talking about the value of analytics, the new pitching coach Oscar Marine as well as the new manager in Dirk Shelton and marine arrives bringing an increased awareness and emphasis on analytics must growth told us that that stuff's all well and good, but it can only take you so far on the bump. Commanders, man game. You know there's there. There's all kind of different elements that come into the game. That computer can't tell you so. my game is is hugely based on just pure competition, and you know my ability to to learn the game over the last. Four years I've been in the big leagues. Just let those things play from me. Let your instincts take over. I mean that's one of the things that we have is professional. Athletes is an ability to think differently to think faster to act. Say Calm, and you know certain situations and. When you let go out and just pitch and compete. Those things get pulled out of them that a coach or a computer can't necessarily teach your or help you so. that's a huge part of my game, but the numbers are numbers man. They're facts and you know it's right in front of you, so you can't ignore those things and. If there and they can help you. You gotta use them to your advantage so It's more so in the preparation where all that analytical stuff comes into play. You know when you got you know pitch design, and how you want your pitches. It'd be moving in the shape you on in a spin you on A. That stuff is really helpful for it, and it helps you create good game plans, but when you get out there in the game, and there's so many times I've got out there with. You know three different game plans and I'm ready to use regardless our. Depending on what the situation is you know? After two pitches one hundred the game, you know, I throw it out the window and it's just pure reaction so. use it a lot to prepare and get ready to when you get out there in the game, and it's just it's just competition. Your your instincts takeover. Really good stuff there from Jim Moscow. Analytics I think a lot of old school. Dinosaurs just hate it because new school computer geeks think it's revolutionizing the game. Things like the shift and whether guy can hit a curve waller slide, and that's been around forever, but. Talking about how it's a preparatory thing you know. How do you get the ball to break inside tool right hand? That's where you can talk about spin rate and stuff if you're on the mound, and it's to to two in basis of load in the bottom of the eighth, and you're wondering. What's my spin rate right about now? You are lost here to hear Joe Muslim states still man against man game. Yes, it is thanks for notice Joe. good luck tonight. Parts also. Mention of new manager. Derek Shelton had some really interesting things to say yesterday about what he wants from his players and what he's going to expect from himself. Well I. Want Our club to take the the identification of themselves of our group in the room and. Excuse me I realize is my role is is the manager they're going to take and feed off a little bit of how I am especially in terms of the culture, trying to create, but the big thing for our group is I want those guys to have their own personalities and one of the key things that I've taken out of this two point. Oh as they have because they've been. Been Together. You know they're starting to show their voice. They're starting to be actionable and that's exciting for me. The second part of that question the most important thing is being able to listen. You know you have when you sit in this role, you have to be able to listen in instead of talk. More and I think for coaches. That's always something we have to step back. Back, because we're wanting to coach, and we're wanting to talk, and I am I think when you go from this role you. You have to do that and I was very fortunate. I saw Rocco do it really well last year. He's probably one of the best listeners I've ever been around. You know I know. Because I was a guy in the room, talking some of the time and the. The fact that he was able to do it, and then my conversations with him, going forward in the fact of actually being with him in Kevin Cash. you know in Tampa doing it for the first time I think they do a very good job. Listen and taking in information, and that would probably be the big thing I would. I would take out of sitting in this chair. That reference. The Rocco was Rocco. Ball Deli. The manager of the twin into whom Shelton worked last year. How often do you hear coach talking about? You need to listen more. So a lot of levels to Dirk Shelton so far. Hopefully the level he finds, his manager is not the bottom of the division, but that remains to be see. Why I'm not sure that we know the level of implementation that he's going to employ as it pertains to. Analytics, but clint hurdle had a decent balance between you know, gut, feel for the game in using where it's smart I, think analytics. It really does appeal. There's a couple of different types of baseball fans, but truly too big generalities you can make the types of fans were who kept score their whole lives, and we're very data driven in loved the numbers, and they have medical in their attraction to the game, and then there are the people who were more. More attracted to the gut, feel romance sort of art fullness of the game. That didn't have any quantifiable stuff behind it. You know there were some you know, but not to the extent that they are now surely new era and stuff like that and even po possibly up to war, but like some of these analytics now are just I get why they appeal to the people that they do, but I think that it's a really hard thing for organizations. To use, it's like a really slippery slope. If you know how to employ them effectively, there are great tool, but I don't know that there are a lot of organizations who top to bottom understand how to make everybody believe this is how we're using it. This is why it works so that you don't get. Joe Must Grow worrying about spin when he's. Facing a potential, you know tying run on second. Yeah, I think I it sounds as if from what I've heard about Oscar. Marina new pitching coach. He wants to give them the information, but he also wants them to do what they're most comfortable doing and. It's a tool. It's an information source, but it's not the Bible. One of the pitchers talked about that during spring training two point. Alison He'll still let you go. You want to go within the critical situation if you feel that good if you get, get the guy out you get them out and if you don't maybe figure out why you didn't. Isn't that that's the problem. Is that like one variable in the midst of using an analytic equation completely nullifies it like if you if you don't stick to it all the time, you're really landed percents percentages. We'll see and I know you hate analytics, and I definitely don't love them. But I think there's got be a way that you. You know. You can use them to to great effect without you know. I don't know that anybody abandons them anymore and I mean it's straight. Let's it's here is big business in every. Spin Rate and launch angle for guy hits the ball. Six hundred feet I'll give. What is launch angle was I hit really hard and really far OUTTA. Hear if a guy throwing one hundred miles. An hour sold one hundred miles an hour. They you can tell this stuff without a rep Soto machine. Or what do you think kids are now like? Like elbowing each other. When? You Know Josh. Powell Lodges One, and they're yelling. What the the philosophy was coming off the bat or You know yeah. We're like five hundred feet. That's five hundred. That's an analyst. was really interesting. Come on, yeah, come on far to go. That's all we care up. Too many graphics on TV and too much extraneous crap Ola, but again in preparation. There's some value in it. We'll see if the pirates can glean starting tonight in Saint Louis Penn scrimmaged again last night, Intra squad scrimmage number, three, three, two three tie between the black team and the gold team, just one more intra squad, remaining that'll cup on Saturday at noon, and the are off to Toronto on Sunday head coach. Mike Sullivan talk last night about their state of readiness and what they still need to do before they get ready to resume. When we just have to get sharper and all the details of our game. You know our our collective team. Play the sharper in and. We talked about data between periods tonight with the guys, and there's nobody areas where we know we. We need to improve and get better if we're going to be hard to play against an and bring that that playoff mindset in that playoff game. took her on with us in and. The, team that we were from also this year in being difficult play against and stingy defensively and it, it always starts with a with the decisions we make with. Making sure that we don't feed the transition game of our opponents, things of that nature, and it really boils down to a lot of the details of of every aspect of overall team game in those areas where we're gonNA, continue to work at. We we break all the filmed down of UPI center squads. We try to show them areas where the where we like, and we show them the areas where we need to continue to get better. Tighten up our team game. We'll do that again after. The into squad, but we're just GONNA. Keep building here. You start hearing a lot more about puck management playing a game the right way. As they get ready? Eighteenth Sports Net Randy announced yesterday that they're going to broadcast the exhibition games, the One and only exhibition game against Philadelphia. That'll be four o'clock on Tuesday and then game. One against the Canadians is a week from tomorrow night. Talking because with Rob King from at Sports Net when we return here on. Who? It's ready Bamut the DNA morning show. Bill Crawford joined right now by our buddy. Rob King from at and T. Sports net king. What's up, buddy? How are you baseball, guys? How are you hope you're doing well I mean. Can you believe it? Finally? We waited and waited for baseball, and it is finally back tonight. The cardinals and the pirates. Joe Must grow all right so the first question I have for you, Kingere the forty man roster. Finalize a any surprises in your estimation. No. nothing that jumped out I, mean they're you know the the big question was? Are they going to have fifteen pitchers and fifteen position players on the thirty man active, until they have to whittle it down eventually twenty six, or is it going to be sixteen pitchers in fourteenth position players? I just think right now they're. They're still searching for their bullpen, so it makes sense to carry the extra arm and and. Away, we go well. You know the big reason why we're here. Of course COVID, who I'm sure you Bob Dining probably thought that was a shortstop. They had in the The Minor League system I'm not worried about Kobe. He's coming along just fine. He's only nineteen. He's still on the farm system, right? But. The buck goes, have they? You know they they've taken. Their share hits in that regard. Polanco Kiana Kelly now we learn has been dealing with it. Socrates Breda before that and the other guy's name is escaping me, but Ki Ki. Brian Hayes Blake Cedar Yup Yup. Relation to the other teams, how bad have they had it? Such a good question I really I really don't know I think some teams you know. I, I would imagine they're probably in the in the middle of the pack. I really don't know for a fact I will say this though you know. The pirates are relying on certain guys and then a Gregory Polanco. It's really important to the middle of their lineup, trying to give Josh Palsson protection and. They were able to be a decent offensive team a year ago and you're Kinda hoping political big year, and then you mentioned the the bullpen I. Think is the biggest question mark for me heading into the season and without county Keller. Who is there closer boy. At least you felt like. Hey, we get to the ninth-inning. Now. You have some questions you know it's. A little bit of the amount of players, but for me with pirates you know with a couple of guys are really counting on it. It's the quality as much as anything else well. WHAT'S HE GONNA? Do there I mean? Is it a creek? Who Does he call on? Is it just going to be Bhai Committee once again? It seems like. If. They could get some stability here. Even though you know. Hopefully Kelly comes back. That would be great for a rookie manager to not have to do so much up. Yeah I think he's going to be by committee, and I think so, but also going to happen this year now. This is something that that people that you know. followed it the sheer numbers of the game to Sabermetrics. People have been talking about for years. Is You know sometimes? The game isn't a balancing the seventh inning. And you know you you bring in your quote. seventh-inning guy who might be your Third Best Lieber? He gets beat up, and then you're closure sitting without even a chance to close and the argument has been why not bring that guy in the seventh inning now I still think and I think a lot of people in baseball. There's still something about getting last three out. It's not it's not for everybody. Not everybody kind of has the make up the stomach. Stomach or whatever you want to say for that, but I think you're going to see more of a teams, better or best relievers coming in early in the games anyway, because you can't afford to blow three or four opportunities early on in this season there. Are you know another hundred forty games in which you can make it up, so I think it's going to be different anyway to me. It's going to be one of the interesting things of this. Well in that. Respect you know the limited amount of second chances that you have. How aggressive is Shelton going to be as a rookie manager? I mean this is a likable guy. You know like a- As personalities go. This guy has personality and spades. It really does remind me of the way clearly came into town here. There's a lot of similarities in terms of likeability and attitude that would be easy to root for as a pirates fan like this. I like the way this guy is. He's already got her nickname. Sheltie! He's he has shelf is a crash Davis figure, so it's a you know. He's a pretty fun guy. To to root for but boy, this is an unenviable position for a guy who's got make some Hay pretty quick. Well. He is a great I mean. Everybody just raves about him I. mean from. From Scott Bonnet and the equipment room to the players to the front office I mean everybody's raving about, and it's a really a. Tight knit group of players to kind of the next wave of is is taken over and. Came up through the system together and. I think. It's easy for them to kind of get along and have a positive attitude and again it'll be interesting, you know. I I've been kind of weighing in wrestling around facilities. How much is positive attitude? Hey, we want to be here. We WanNA play. We like each other. How much is that GONNA Matter? The team is like I. Don't know you know I'm wasting my family and that kind of stuff, and which is understandable. Slow start could bury it. Honestly as far as how. Aggressive he'll be. I don't know I mean it's GonNa. Be Interesting. I I think. Did he trust the players? The players trust him. But I you know every game. is going to be so vital, and you know what they do in extra innings of the runner starting on second I mean. You bought them already FDA. You play for a beginning. That's going to be an interesting part of the strategy and. He and his staff Santa Latte as well so. It's a strange different season. But I think it's as long as everybody stays healthy. I think it's GonNa be kind of fun. I think it's GONNA BE INTERESTING TO WATCH YEAH! Now the one hurdle that broadcasters have is not being able to be at the ballpark in so Greg Brown and the Lakers are GonNa have to be calling the game. And you're going to be working the game remotely. King or as a broadcaster. How do you prepare? These games and then adjust on the fly when you're not there to watch it, and you're just calling it on TV, and as I pointed out several times on this broadcast, avoid turning the channel when it's the pirates. Now, so let me get I kid like let me handle the first part of that question, really kind of only. Say this. You know first of all at Home Games ob there right so they're going to be at PNC park in games. Okay, it's the road games that are going to be in our studio. They're not traveling with the team. You know I've called a few games off monitors and I think Joe. Block all this I in an exhibition game. That we had a couple of nights ago I I don't know brownies, call games or not, but I. do know that I was nervous about calling a game remotely and because you're worried I was calling high school, Football Games or on our air. Future's going to call occupants to worry about you know. What are you going to miss or you'RE GONNA? Miss stuff that's happening behind the play. and. I think it probably. As far as the actual physical calling of the game I would say like ninety five to ninety eight percent of it will be, you won't even in fact, people my work. Colleagues did not know when we did. Is School our First High School football game remotely? They had no idea we weren't there. Now I think what you MRS, a broadcaster. is you see a guy coming off the team bus? Wait a minute. He's Kinda limping a little bit, and you're not surprised when he's not in the lineup, and you're not saying you know you're not all Wisey late scratch while that. You know being around the team as a lot about. But I think it's it's short term it's it's this year. Only you know. Everybody's dealing with something and. You know they're great guys, so it'll be nice to have in the studio but I think in in subsequent years we'll be back on the road. Will you guys do a great job. I can't wait for these broadcasts and the ratings are going to be through the roof. I mean everybody is thrilled to have. The buck goes back Josh Bell. You know in this age of Social Awareness Josh. Bell is really emerge not just as a leader on the field, but socially and being a voice for the Buckeyes. Buckeyes can reminds me of a T.. J. Watt like TJ was Kinda Quiet I. Earned his stripes on the field, and then felt a little bit more comfortable about using his voice and Josh Bell has been tremendous in that regard in a time where a lot of athletes can sort of be clumsy and trying to say and convey what they're trying to articulate. Not at all for Josh Bell. Who's WHO's been very on point? The whole time, and that has been a really pleasant surprise for an organization that I think has long wanted somebody like that in the community here in Pittsburgh I agree you know he's. He's a really Really look. It's a great call. Asked go into I mean. I'm telling you it is a fantastic about. It is a really really easy team to root for I mean from for the pitching staff to Josh Bell. The rest of the empty others really just go around the diamond I mean. It really is a great easy team to root for. You know it's interesting that you know he. He came out with you. Know Bookies reading, and you know the documentary thirteen which is a terrific documentary. He's been talking about out a little bit, but you know I'm not surprised that you know I think he's I think he's got that type of personality and. For every player. You know sometimes players say look you know I got to establish myself before I talk. Others feel more comfortable at an early stage. I think Josh Bell He's always he's always been the kind of guy that could certainly do that. And whether the timing was the two things you know, dove tailing the social issues going on, and and his emergence has star last year I don't i. don't know whether that prompted timing, but He's voice that that when he says something, he's interesting guy to listen to for sure. Rob King at T. Sports net tonight. The puck Os and the cardinals must grove Scott up break his. Routine with these guys have. Have early, and then you know breaking down a little bit later against the cardinals particularly this year in which these division. Games are so important rob. Yeah and you know I honestly. Look Sixty game season. You know We're going to have something. Pre game show tonight that the last three years nine teams. Would have made the playoffs after sixty games that did not so. That's a pretty sizable percentage. I mean. That's you know. Pushing forty percent of the teams that that would have made the playoffs. That didn't make the last year. The nationals who won the world series wouldn't have made the playoffs after sixty games. So you have a chance to me the chance for the pirates. The offense should be okay. You know it definitely needs to take a little bit of a step forward. To emerge, you know as a top seven or eight offense in the League to me. Starting pitching is going to be really interesting, because there's there's talent there Joe Moscow. Finish the season strong last year. Chad cools a talented guy. We've seen Trevor Williams for a full calendar year. He's one of the best pitchers in the league. Mitch Keller is a guy that was ballyhooed as prospect and you know. Can this new regime sort of help him? Live up to being a you know. James and town type front of the rotation type starter. I'm really eager to see Joe Strove pitch because he looked great in the exhibition game. You look great and spring training before that you know if the pirates are going to do something I think it's going to start with the starting pitching and that starts tonight. Yeah, we had. Just. Wanted to ask you if you had a well groomed ball field by your house somewhere where the Blue Jays could play maybe. Yeah that is interesting I mean. No, I got I got more you. Yeah, that's that's an interesting story for sure. Will the PIROGIES wear masks? Oh man yet perogie races, and you know it's GonNa be it's GonNa. Be Really Interesting And you know what they do with the Perogie races and you know there's been talk of like. You know see fans into the stands, and I think they're definitely going to be pumping crowd noise and I think the players like the crowd noise. So it'll be, it'll be interesting and I gotta be honest guys. I'm not a guy that like thinks that much about that kind of stuff like I'm like over here. Diving into joe must have spin rate. And how much is he going to throw these lies? I'm like paying no attention to the other stuff and it's all. It's all going to be news to me. When I turned on the TV tonight and I'll be interested to see what it looks like. It would be great if at and T. Sports net if you guys. All your production wizards there could go back into old games and just get footage of buckles, fans eating, and just in just in between just forget it just go to old footage of people hanging out the Ballpark, so the US it'll look exactly the same and we'll see the same. Yinzer is getting hammered on a Friday night. But it'll be from you know a few years ago and then you can have like. Hey, we're GONNA use crowd shots from nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventy eight tonight. You know stuff like that. It'd be kind of fun listening. I wouldn't be surprised that. I'm sure things will develop it. As the season goes onto, I was watching A K B O game you know the Korean baseball. Baseball. Yeah and I mean that's what happens right I. Think it was. It might have been a Japanese league game I think they'd like cardboard cutout guys in the in the stands like you know like a string of like five people. And they had their hands up near like they were cheering and guy hit a home run. They cut to the cardboard cutouts within found A. Who knows I what we're GonNa do but everyone's GonNa. Get everyone's getting. Get Creative, but we have a lot creative people, and and those people will create stuff like that. It's going to be kind of fun to watch. Let me tell you I. Don't WanNa Watch it beyond this year, but it'll be fun to watch for. One of the best things about the pirates has been the coverage that eighteenth sports net is put together. You guys. You got an awesome team and I always love seeing all the special program. You have aside from that, but these Games are a pleasure to watch I can't wait to see this truncated season in no matter what comes of it, I'm GonNa. Be Watching it all the. The way because this is going to be fun stuff and I'm rooting like you said you know as much as I can't stand nutting. The Guy always put a team together. That's easy to root for, and this is you know early. Get somebody to do it. And charing in his rookie year with the Bucco has certainly done a good job of putting together a likeable team. I looking forward to it i. mean and again you know it's a sixty game season. you know really seriously. I mean I just the numbers I said earlier. Anything can happen so I, I can't wait and it's just so nice to have a live sporting events back in and ready to go pirates in cardinals, tomorrow or tonight rather eight fifteen our time.

I mean that's been pointed out by students online, but I'm sure there's a way to safely do it. You just have to. The implementation of it is going to be difficult. It's the same reason why. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me why you can't socially distance people in ballgames like if they're outside. I. Don't know what the issue is, but it's getting them in there and hurting them in there. That is the problem because you'd almost have to have like a here.

Jimmy joining us right now on the virtual coffeehouse here on the DVD morning show Jimmy Good Morning. How are you buddy? Good Morning, Randy! I'm doing well hanging in all of this Yeah, man, doing the best I can. You got a brand new album coming out and blues fans particular always. WanNa make note of whenever you got anything going on. What is the new record? Tell us about it. Well this new record is a little bit of a departure from usual swinging blues style I wrote all the songs a lot of Americana Flavor in it and. Songs that are reflective, so although there's the regular blues. Guitar that I play also some different styles. Yeah, I, mean I. CHECK IT OUT! It sounded a little Dilbert mcclinton e to me a little bit more of like. uh, even kind of John. Heightened spaces. Oh, that's cool. Yeah! Yeah, and it's been listening to Randy Crou- and John Hammond album that was produced by Tom Waits. About ten twenty years ago on, we'll tell us. What, what's the name of the record again? Sweet memories okay. Where did you record this? This is recorded in Indiana. My friend has a studio up there. Larry Math is. Also an English teacher like myself and has a studio in his house, electric land and in the. Of the Clark's. Electric Larry Land. It's Larry's. Who all played on this record was unusual cast of characters. No, this was all me all the songwriting all the instruments, so it's very different. Project Dow very cool Do you think? Did you feel you had a week? Position in the instrumentation was drum tracking more difficult than playing keys or anything like that well, it was different because all of my my other four records have a keyboard on them. This record doesn't have a keyboard. My last record recorded in California was done mostly live as I think a blues record should be. This one was layered with different guitar tracks, and I took a completely different approach because I was the only. Person An instrument. Layered, guitar tracks very cool all right well. Let's listen to a cut from the album. What's the first one we're going to hear This one is called How long do you know about the being empowered making changes and having a voice? How long for the album? Sweet Memories? Here's Jimmy Adler DV. Raise! Radio. Way. A. Salmi. DV E. Sports. Gambling is a baseball is back in. Microsoft is here with sports on the DVD morning show? Sports is brought to you by sportclips. Anybody else that Yankees. Dodgers Parlay last night one for one. Phrase Rolling down a track Nice Nice baseball. Started last night and the buck goes. Crank it up tonight in Saint Louis. Opening Night Joe Musk Grove on a mild and the first game is a manager for the bucks new skipper Derek Shelton. We've heard a lot about Shelton today. How engaging he is is humor his positively, but one thing we have talked about is his incredibly maniacal attention to detail that goes guys to the extent. He's going to be manager too big leagues for the first time tonight. He has already practiced the pre-game speech to the team. They did address rehearsal dry run. Derek Shelton speaking to a team for the first time as a major league manager, and as we sometimes do here on the morning show. We've uncovered that audio for you. I'm not much forgiving. Inspirational address. Every newspaper in the country. That's picked us to finish last. The local press seems to think we'd save everyone a lot of time and trouble if we just went out shot so. I'm wasting sports writers time so I'd like to hang around and see if we can give them all nice big. Burger I think you've gotta captured the spirit of the thing, right? That'll play big tonight awesome. That was actually the Great Lou. Brown for Major League, but Derek shown. As. Luke Brown was is aware that not much is being expected from your buck buckles in twenty twenty. I think the one thing that we've talked about private privately. The same thing I've talked about is just the fact that whatever people externally say. We really don't care I care what our group thanks and what our staff thinks and our baseball staff. Thanks and we'll kind of deal with those and you know I think. The players had really good conversations amongst themselves. Mike I hope he doesn't take that Lou. Brown thing any further and have a cardboard cutout of Bob nutting in the locker room, saying you guys stink. You know it may come to that because a lot of people also probably unaware when when the negotiations were taking place between the new general manager. Ben Sherrington and Derek Shelton they were delayed because Shelton had a guy on the other line about white walls and he wanted to. Get that taken care of. Agreed to be the pirates manager. Bet You know I hope they go. Eight and sixteen could bring out the Bull Durham lolly gagging speech. We are. We would eight Larry it's a miracle. It's a miracle. Bench Sherrington general manager finalized his thirty man roster yesterday, sixteen pitchers and fourteen position. Players of the parts kept sixteen pitchers. Harrington said in part because they're not sure what they have, and some of these guys and in part, because they're not sure what roles might suit these pitchers best. I guess I would say it's not specific to roles I I know. Sheltie shared that. I think in terms of the Rosser decision itself probably more about Holding onto is much pitching as we can, and giving ourselves more time to learn and give been giving guys more more time to develop and get you know, get competition against Major League hitters also and You know we're GONNA. We're we're excited to get into games we'll. We'll continue to learn more about that group, and whether that's you know obviously. In a couple of weeks we may have a roster decision, but the the decision how roles evolve. would say is less about. How many pitchers were carrying and We're just. WERE WE WANNA? Give ourselves a chance to learn as much as we can about as many pictures as possible. I mean that's. Pretty Blunt right there. I don't know if he's trying to be as blunt as interpreting that to be, but he's talking about guys needing development, time and guys. They have to learn about at the major league level. That's probably not gonNA end well I think particularly as it relates to the bullpen, you look at the starters you could see must grow having a real good year. Mitch Keller is a guy who is highly thought of just getting started. Trevor Williams says had success in the big leagues for extended stretches. The starting rotation is not proven, but it's far from hopeless. You get into that bullpen man. I don't know what they're gonNA. Get and they're gonNA. Get into that bullpen a lot and they're gonNA learn the hard way a lot I think, but. That's why they play the game. Let's give the last word to Derek was the star of string spring training two point zero at the podium. He he thinks not only are the pirates not indifferent to all the criticism and low expectations. He thinks that's going to help drive the team. Trust me, I'm a big reader. See what's going on I. I've seen somebody I'M NOT GONNA. Call out whoever it was, but somebody made a comment about me and brawl in. Somebody else don us. This is a terrible rotation ripping US apart. We love that. Please keep doing it. Keep ripping US apart. Keep constant, you think we suck and all that, and I love it, and so those guys. I promise you if you're feeding the fire and we love that. Play ball tonight, guys! Echoes, cards, eight fifteen. Baseball's back. What's the over under on wins for the season for twenty four and a half twenty four? By Fox Bet APP has a twenty five and a half. Going to twenty five and a half. Five hundred Mike. They gotTA. Win Twenty Six. Shoots, going, to be. Be close to be interesting bill. The starting pitchers are going to have to go real deep in outing. Because if as start putting out you know, getting shelled and getting out of there in the fourth inning and fifth inning. It's just gonNA. Put pressure on the biggest trouble spot on the club, and that's just GonNa. It could get real out of control. Real quick. and. Here's the other red flag of the sixteen pitcher. The only have four left-handers. One of those is Holland who's a starter and another one is Stephen brought. who were assuming is going to be one of the piggyback guys for the fifth spot in the rotation, so that's. A real promising, either, but that's why they play the Games. Get another one in the virtual coffeehouse from Jimmy add. They're coming up after the break here on the DVD morning.

I site for baseball I. don't care about the crowd. Not being there I was wondering for the radio broadcasts across the League if they were going to enhance the sound like they were trying to for television like. Is it going to be a separate thing or is it only whatever happens in the stadium? I believe it's the second thing I noticed. Just I really didn't notice it last night. With watching the, Yankees game maybe I'll so riveted on watching Garrett Cole but when the pirates late in Cleveland, one of those exhibition games. For Ever Cleveland. Set that guy sitting up in left field under the scoreboard banging the drum. beating. I could hear that going on during the pirates Indians game. I think it's going to be ambient to supposed to.
