And I don't want to be put in the situation where I'm GonNa fail and let people down and just so it really has needed my mind though a couple more questions Larry I. Let you go really appreciate your time Larry. Walker Baseball Hall of Famer my guest and to be from Canada Ferguson. Jenkins from Canada Hall of Famer now. Larry Walker what is it meant to Canadian baseball and your country such a proud country to have somebody from Canada. Go into baseball's hall of fame. Yeah. It's it's. A, it's a pretty neat thing. You know like I say he's the only one in there the only the only player, the only the only pitcher in analogous, the honor of being the only position player in and can cost. You know it's. It's a neat thing and. A lot of people are some are maybe a little disappointed, even though the correct decision was to put a cardinal's cap on my blacks or Rockies. Cap At black and some people wanted an expert one on there. You. Know like I say. I my my answer to that when they say that is, it is a Iraqis at the cardinals named is on the plaque. The experts name was on the plaque and there's a Canadian flag on my heart. That never goes away. So you know the the fact that I came north of the border and did something that. No other physician player has ever for my country is huge. And I hope it really inspires a lot of kids to play the game more north of the border, and and you know they have a chance. Though they grew up in areas where baseball isn't very plentiful, and we can't play all that many months of the season neither have you talked to tither O.`Neil I taught him in spring training, and he looks up to you being from Canada. And he said it's just amazing to see one of our own..

Thank you very much trying to make the best of out of the situation that we've all been dealt with so it's a struggle for everyone I know but but I'm from plugging through absolutely Has It sunk in when when I say hall of Famer Larry Walker is that? Is that sunk in yet for you? Not Really. I think before this pandemic stuff hits and I was just getting ready to go. Do some things and in Denver up in Vancouver. Hall of fame, related stuff, and then everything got canceled. And and then the kind of just. Everything back to normal as far as you know hall of fame, stop and talk and you know I'm down in Kabul San Lucas right now, and it's we don't talk down here. We go hang out and have a couple of POPs snow, and then, and that's what is so. It's it really. It hasn't sunk in one bit. What's your handicap now? Impact. Just look today I'm down to four point. Five is legitimate though that's that's the real question. I don't want it to be that low. I don't blame. Ya when when you got the call to go to the hall of fame. You had to wait so long over the years, did you? Did you get to the point? Where like? The heck with it. You know it happens great. If that's you know, that's fine, too. Did you ever kind of get to that point where you're almost get immune to it? You know what I mean you're. You're just you're numb to it. Did you ever get to that point over the long? Wait that you had to wait to get to the hall well to to be talking. Talking about it. Because I'm in now is something that never really wants crossed my mind. You know well how am I gonNA talk, but I'm a hall of Famer shipping something I never worried about because I am one. Hundred percent did not believe that that would happen.

"Nah I listen to a lot of like rock in Alternative type of stuff anything with like a bunch of distorted guitars but I also I do love country music. I think funny enough. I've only ever been to country concerts Even though I would say don't listen to it that much but I think it's a really good Jonah. Honestly and she's fun to go there because it's just a little different though this year the country day just because of the presence of smoke spokesman kind of head player that's kind of been on the promotional side of countries. So that'll be interesting. How they do that this year by its John. Gibbons daughter right who has right and singing that they no longer have that connection But yeah it seems like. There's nothing really this year that stands out the one. I'd say I'm most excited for is the as I mentioned before. My favorite player is Lord Israel Junior So I'm excited for that one but there's not a alarm clock giveaway And like that's a game that I really wanted to go to because of that But I don't really see anything like that in single game. Tickets did go on sale this week. So there's I don't really feel an onus right now to buy a ticket to any one of these games because of any specific giveaway although they are exciting and I'm pretty excited to see some of them really haven't been announced sale like the Hello Kitty Bobblehead Which is Blue Jay themed? They haven't released a picture for that so that should be exciting And then there's also the Kevin Bijou hit for the cycle bobblehead as we mentioned. They haven't released a picture for that. So some of the stuff is still to come But Yeah The Blue Jays over the past week have done a handful of small signings. That probably won't make too much of a difference at the major league level But just starting off today. They had I'd say the the most noteworthy signing of the week. They signed Raphael Dallas to a one year. Major League deal Scotty Mitchell of tsn He was the first one to report it. It was confirmed By others including Ben. Nicholson Smith The deal includes option for twenty twenty one and Dulles as a reliever he pitched in Japan for the past few years but in twenty nineteen In five one. Era Again it's all out of the bullpen but Still really good numbers and You know just looking back on his numbers. Dulles hasn't pitched in the majors since twenty three has a lot of good consistent numbers in the past you know five years from Japan so looking back in two thousand eighteen years. An era of two point eight. I'm twenty seventeen two point seven one twenty sixteen He played fewer games. He only pitched thirty innings the in the area of two point one to seventeen game seventeen innings as well in two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen in Dominican League He had zero point five. Three era so Obviously those numbers are not directly transferable. Because they are from foreign leagues but they're still -joyed any as major league experience He made according to sports net. Forty appeareance appearances with the cubs Between Two thousand eleven and twenty thirteen and he's still only thirty two years old so I think this is good. Timing for bluejays because it it only costs them one million dollars Plus whatever he accrues in bonuses over the twenty twenty season and then they have the option As a club to pick up His contract for twenty twenty one so Yeah I like with any of these deals. There's no downside and I think the Blue Jays were right to prioritize signing someone like this for the bullpen. As the Great Mike Wilner would say You can never lose out on a one year deal and you know again. Malls from lots of signings. They made this week. I just want to say some other ones that they done These are all minor league deals with invites spring training. So Patrick Cantwell Catcher. Caleb Joseph Katcher. We obviously are familiar with him a little bit. Since he's he's spent time with the Baltimore and Infielder Ruben to To hotta so of course Joe Panic who. I think you've mentioned already and the interesting one of Joe. Panic has been seeing a lot of base off of reaction online. A lot of Eric sogard comparisons here For Joe Panic. Who can you possibly or has a chance to revamp his career in Toronto in e. That doesn't even mean he can make the the major league spring training as Soga obviously started last season in AAA and You know Joe Panic still got something to prove and you know. He's obviously got a great resume. He's got a career thirty three thirty four on base percentage. So one thing that he's always done successfully is get on base and he spent thirty nine games with the mets to finish off the back in the last year. Had to seventy seven average soon. He didn't play. He played pretty good near the end. You know before that He was struggling. He was struggling struggling. Mightily in or with the giants. Obviously that's where he's most known known for and he eventually got released during the Ernie. One you want home to play for the mets and the N. Ryan Dahle Someone who were kind of familiar with he had a he actually had one appearance for the Jays last year and it didn't go too well In over one inning. He he posts a six seventy five year. Ray and as a blue Jay so hopefully he can drop that number down a little bit as he's looking to spend more time as he'll spend parts with the major league team depending on performance and injuries so on and so on. I spent part of last year as well with the Yankees Majora majority of his time and Raphael. Dole is again He's somebody who hasn't pitched in the majors at geometric since twenty thirteen and you know based off of his numbers Since he's left the majors you can see that you know his stretch going going to Japan. They're playing in other leagues. Worked out for the Sorry worked out for him actually. And from two thousand sixteen to two thousand nineteen just based off of average numbers. He's got to forty. Nine hundred ninety six saves so I guess it's something to kind of look forward to but You made a good point saying it's not very transparent for just because he's been a different leagues but I guess it's something that another death he said. You can't go wrong with and you know the Jays again that's just a classic thing but when you're you know you're building up towards spring training signing players to minor league deals especially in the bullpen on one year deals no lose deals because even if they don't make the major league roster that could be valuable pieces for you in the Minor Leagues so nothing to complain about their and hopefully for other players like panic. You hope he can kind of revamp his career. It's he's on another one year deal and You know maybe it'll maybe it will work out sogo. Maybe it won't but again you can never lose out on a one year deal. Yeah I like the comparison you that you just brought up from panic the SOGARD. I think that's interesting because actually in since so Garda's are not saga since panics. Been in the The majors he has actually never had an on. Base percentage below. Three point three hundred. Which honestly that's really good in my opinion and I think the fact that he is twenty eight years old he could provide if he were to make it to the he were to make the cut star. Come the start of the season. I think he could be a valuable of veteran piece. I mean he's not like significantly older but you know he has been an all star he has been in the world series. He has won a gold glove. So I think he's a guy that could still add some form of Experience to help these younger guys Be I think also just overall the bluejays are good in doing the right thing that when you're rebuilding you want to sign as many guys you can and even if you're not rebuilding are going into spring training. You WanNa have people to look at you know you never know who could come out of spring training as it could emerge and make your roster. I think was it five years ago. I think it was back when Roberto Osuna was kind of a nobody. He and Miguel Castro. They were just kind of brought in and then they ended up actually doing pretty well. That season will soon at least and you know it. Just it shows that you know you bring anybody in you know whether they have a proven track record or they just. They just need that one chance. You know. It's good because now you have. You have options. A lot of people that are competing for a set number of spots and that you know that promotes them to to play really well in order to get to the major leagues and stay there so I think yeah it's a there's no no losses that could ever come out of this. I think I do not recognize any of the names But in this in this list of the movie honest I kind of forgot about Ryan adult but I all of all the the following names. I know that my group into Hotta Joe Panic Kill Joseph. Patrick Cantwell I I recognize all those names which was interesting and they seem to be all washed up major leaguers with the exception of can't well because he's been in the Blue Jays Organization for some eight years as Catcher But yeah what I want. What do you guys think about killed? Joseph because there was a feud many years ago I think it was twenty fifteen involving killed Joseph because I just reading now in the Baltimore Sun When he was with the Orioles Jose Ray has accused Joseph of stepping on His hand at on a play at the plate so Marcus stroman through at Joseph's Head And then in another game Aaron Sanchez through at Kill Joseph although. Apparently it wasn't intentional. So there's definitely lots of Lots of tensions between these two parties Do you think of that still resonates. Now I think largely without Jose Bautista. The feud between the Orioles and the Blue Jays has cooled down though yet. The the one highlight. I'M GONNA say out of all the players you've mentioned with past issue Joseph is none of them are on the team anymore. And I think that's got a big You know I got a big factor in bringing them in and quite frankly to is under a different front office in lots of other factors. I'm sure Caleb Joseph That's GonNa be a lot easier for him to you. Know not even think about anymore. You know those again. Those rivalries between Jason Orioles a few years ago when both teams were there were some heated moments like you said and even going back even further before they were both playoff teams with Darren O'Day and Jose Bautista. An unknown of these player. There anymore so I don't I haven't really looked into too much and again kill Joseph. He's got six. I spent five out of his six years in the with the Orioles and last year he spent time with the Arizona diamondbacks organization the only appeared in twenty games though. And you know this thing would kill Joseph is. He's a typical. Backup catcher with the healthy roster. I it's doubted he's GonNa make the opening day roster but again anything can happen in the spring training but you know what you're getting out of Joseph. You're getting you're not. You're not getting a very good header. With a crew of six twenty and a career average of two twenty so it's something again and again in on base percentage below three hundred a typical backup catcher. Who's you know? He likely won't be making the opening day roster. I don't see too much out of any further problems. Killer Joseph. Yeah I think it's interesting that you brought that up because I was thinking the exact same thing. I don't necessarily think that this is GonNa Impact Caleb Joseph's chance of making the roster although I still doubt it with Danny Janssen and reese McGuire Perhaps if someone like strom it if Someone like Stroman was still on the team. Who was kind of in the middle of that feud that there could be the potential for some type of arguments? If any but I kinda doubt it I think everybody has probably moved on by now but I. I don't really think it will impact his chances. Although like I said I doubt he's really gonNA make it. He he's just brought up or he's just been signed as a do due diligence to just add more depth to your your organization if something bad would happen to your primary catchers yeah just. WanNa before we wrap things up market just wanted Just change switch.

Ninety nine point seven right. Who is the guy that didn't vote for him? Ya Ah what a point three per vote. I guess it sounds like doing the math I was thinking the same thing. How can you be so far? skews the punt punt so far off base. Yeah and that's why a lot of people think that should be. It should be actually publicized. Like all voters should be fully transparent unclear and release their voting to the public so we would know which guy should be stripped immediately. You of his right to vote on this thing. If you know the Derek jeter and I'm not even a big Yankee Fan but he don't think Derek jeter is a hall of Famer you don't belong in in this process. You're you're fired you're off the board you know on the other side of things just for you. Continue Larry Walker. He who is in for the tenth and final time you need seventy five percent to get in. He had seventy six point six so he gets in just by the skin of his teeth. Though I do think he had a career that merited it. Well you know what I you know what. I saw that ready to go. Look Larry Walker's getting in there. I was never a big enough baseball fan to be able to vote on. Whether guys you get in the altar and I thought wow. That's cool that he got in. There must be a must be well. He's the only the second Canadian. Because I think free Jenkins was the other guy to get in correct What could I started reading the stats of the guy? Okay okay what what he did in his career. Every year Steve. He won some sort of award every single year. They played something and then. I'm watching watching this thing. Last night. He was the Tony Gwynn thinker. Someone called him the best all around players ever seen you know. What do they call guys? When they're multi five tool player a witch five tool player right and so I started reading about it and watching the news last night about this and the the accolades? And what the guys you know. He's got he had an arm. He hit for power he could steal basis Got The golden glove of five time all star. I'm reading this thing. How did this guy possibly have to wait? Fifteen years so I'll give stats. He played from eighty nine to two thousand five. Seventeen seventeen years. He led the majors in batting average three times and in slugging percentage twice he finished up with three hundred eighty three home runs and two hundred thirty stolen bases and a career batting average of three thirteen. And then you factor in what a great defender was. He won seven gold glove awards. Awards five all star nods three silver sluggers and was the National League. MVP In nineteen ninety seven so even though he gets gets in by the skin of his teeth I think he is comfortably. Go as he should be a comfortable going into cooperstown because I think his his numbers merit somewhat go with the whole chorus field thing right given how hitter friendly park is in Colorado and he was there for ten years but He was he was almost. This is good with his time with Montreal Expos meanwhile some guys were closely at Curt Schilling. He was sixty one percent. So No Sir you seventy percent. So he He's five percents and he was on his eighth ballot again. Ten and you're done Roger. Clemens was on his eighth ballot. He's at sixty one percent percent. Another near Miss was Barry Bonds on his eight ballot at sixty point seven percent certainly lots of is on bonds and clemens Everybody raises an eyebrow about How they got the numbers that they did how they had the you know because of the connection to peds Ri- appeared maze? He's and so that's always going to dog them I wanted to do you think they'll get in. Because they're getting they improve each and every year and I think that with with two years still to go. They may finally get in within the next couple of years. But back to the man of honor Larry Walker. Of course he had to do the whole media thing talking into one media outlet after another and decided for some odd reason to where this nascar shirts kind of black and gold but with all kinds of. Spongebob lunged Bob Designs all over it. I'm not sure about the back story on that. I'm going to look into it but I do know I want one. Here's Larry Walker fell to about his induction while it's Sir Dreams about your dream about hitting that home run maybe in game seven to walk it off and win a world series and then when it's all over in the career is over and the numbers there then the next dream is okay was good enough to go join the great to the game so somehow or another I pulled that off and and you know the writers thought I was just good enough to to to make it in. So I'm thrilled about the honor and thrilled about going in as a Canadian. And only the second Canadian to go into cooperstown Fergie Jenkins being the first. So congratulations to the former expo. Larry Walker time now for the RB Computing Web. Paul James the Ottawa. Senators are the subject matter. They have at least two first round pick schedule for the summer's NHL entry draft. Who knows wants the trade deadline comes and goes maybe they have more than two so the question I have is how would you rate their recent I ground performances performances at the draft table? I think it's been pretty damn good overall. I mean there may be some missteps in here but this year they got twenty nineteen. I should say they got finished. Defenseman lassie Thomson. Who I believe was Finland's captain of the World Juniors Two thousand eighteen they get burnt Brady could shock and also Jacob? Bernard are doctor who was awesome for team candidate. This year's World Juniors Shane bowers and 2017. that would may be one where you're not thinking I ground with. Him traded away in the match. Shane deal get Logan Brown. We're still waiting for him. But he has moments twenty sixteen first rounder and then in two thousand fifteen they had Thomas Chabad and Colin White Chabad looks like a slam. Dunk is more than a few cents fans who are very worried about calling white largely because they just signed him to a six year contract. which kicks in this fall and he still you kinda still waiting on him to start behaving like a first rounder but not having the best of seasons hopefully? It'll be alright. Here's some of the feedback. We've got on twitter at TSN Steve where the poll resides as well as our facebook page brand new facebook page this week.

Okay Bud other feedback Felix lalonde rights. You know what they're all good pixel good upside. The only problem right now with white is his performance versus salary. Let's always talking about people. Were complaining when bowers was in the Shane Trade. But he's not having a good season in the American in Hockey League Logan Brown could be great. Playmaker has to improve his skating though. And we'll get three more in here. reuss dry or bus driver Bruce. One I'd ranked as a B. Plus big hits on Chabad and CA- Chuck Thompson. GBD's look great at the world. Juniors Bush League all star is a b plus and Dan Cyrus writes in terms of years until their NHL ready could chuck less than a year. Chaban took two and a half white took four and isn't a top six player. lassie looks to be a couple months or couple years. Rather bowers Brown.

Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies agree to $26 million, 1-year deal
"Nolan Arnaldo and the Rockies have settled on a one year contract as what it is usual. When you go into arbitration. Ken Rosenthal reports are not as one year twenty six million dollar deal with the Rockies is a record for player through the arbitration process. If you remember the Rockies came in at twenty four which would have also been a record one year arbitration deal are not a wanted thirty million dollars. They settle on twenty six as what usually happens. You split. The difference in everyone goes home. That's that's significant and. While it sure doesn't seem like the Rockies have any aces up their sleeve in terms of recruiting Bryce Harper or landing, you know, they're still alive. Dallas kaikal hasn't been signed. Like, it doesn't seem like the Rockies are saving their money to go. After one of these marquee free agents that are still on the market. But I wonder what this means for Nolan are nano he said when he asked for thirty million dollars that it was what all athletes eight is business. It is a business. And you just heard Ryan leaf say the NFL is a business, but at the same time Nolan has no no other organization than the Rockies. You would want him. I think to be a little less cold and calculating, maybe that's too pollyannaish for the rock from the Rockies perspective. But is he going to be that rigid with the Rockies when they tried to negotiate a long-term deal during or after this year, the Rockies can't play around with this? I said this the other day. They can't risk losing Nolan for nothing. And for those who think that this thing's going to drag out till the end of September. No, it's not it has to be settled by July thirty one or they have to have a strong indication one way or another because they gotta get something for them. Or it's going to set this franchise back five years, and I'm not being I I'm not trying to be alarmist. And I don't think I'm being over the top. That's how important Nolan are not always you could talk about Trevor story and Charlie Blackmon those guys come and go they go up and down Nolan is the guy. He's the face of the franchise. He's their best player. He's the most steady and efficient. Hitter that they have. To me. They can't they can't hang onto him hoping that a whole year convinces them. They gotta try to convince them and a half a year or else they're going to be in a really tough spot. Well, and I'd say now that they've taken care of the whole arbitration thing and avoided that started now, right? Are working on a long term deal. Now. And look I would like to Rockies I mentioned this earlier in the show. The Padres are going to meet with Bryce Harper. I would love for Jeff rise to do that. To but to me. Jeff bridage. Should sit down right now. And all he should do. It's figuring out how he can convince Nolan are not to stay. Because that is the top priority and say what you will about when the Rockies traded Larry Walker or Baldo Jimenez, or any of these others. This will be the Troy to Lewinsky, even this will be bigger than any of those and more detrimental to the Rockies. If they don't handle this correctly. So I say all the time you have time to do other things, Jeff. But this has got to be your focus when you wake up in the morning. And when you go to bed at night figuring out. How to convince Nolan are Nado to stay in purple

His numbers are way better than machine is numbers. Well for the record Curt Schilling Roger Clemens Barry Bonds and Larry Walker were the players to get more than fifty percent. But not enough to get in. Curt Schilling got sixty point nine percent. Roger Clemens had a great career. But he ruined it with the steroid thing. And even though he was found not guilty, or whatever they weasel out of it. We all know Barry Bonds. We all I'm Barry Bonds a joke. Barry Bonds joke because he was he looks like skinny Ethiopian from Black Hawk Down. When he first started in the end, he should have been in the WWE, and nobody likes. Him either. He's locker because nobody would talking. We just sit there and why Barry Bonds two guys you ruin their own career. Okay. Who is the other one Larry Walker? Larry Walker was a good player with of the catcher. I listen. I don't know. I know about the Yankees. But but. When you got a guy who's involved with Sarah aids. And who really tainted the sport Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds tainted the entire sport, Ken Griffey junior. Probably didn't get unanimously voted in because he was caught up in that era. So there's a couple of people who are standing by and say, well, we're not gonna nine the first time just because of that even though he got in Albuquerque chilling is really getting kicked in the DS because he deserves to be in way more than a lot of people that are in there. And I don't like I knew Curt Schilling sister lived. I forget what her name is. But she lived in the near the town where I lived in was friends with some friends of mine, whatever and for her birthday. He brought her a brand new track. I thought that was like, yeah. I mean, you know, he's rich. Yeah. There's a brand new track for your birthday. Enjoy it. Oh to pocketing pox still alive. Or is he down to box, dad? Daddy. There's a lot of people with recordings. Well, I was in prison back in nineteen ninety-five. He made a drawing for his girlfriend desharnais Smith. It was a little bit of a pornographic trying for he drew a picture of himself out doing stuff with desharnais style of dogs. If you know what I mean couch in above them. He wrote missing you deeply he put it in a handmade, and blah, blah with the message and stuff while anyways it just sold for auction. I'll let you take a look at the picture that he did their about TV there. He is. Wow. That's a really good picture having a good time. And that's what she looks like I'm very impressed with her. It's a big winner. Got.
