"That you could say that this isn't really quote unquote October because you haven't pitched six months, April. May, June, July, August September to get to October and you're out of gas like a Bob Gibson or Madison Bumgarner. And so is there anything to that? That is this isn't the same October on the body, so we can't give Clayton all the credit. You know, it's great example. And the point you make is really interesting. And we could talk about this for a long time. What gets tired is your mind, not your body. Your mind gets tired. And I think that this postseason has been every bit as grueling as every other one I've ever seen. Even to a degree. You could say it's been more grueling because they had the three game series, which is a crapshoot. It's not quite as bad as a single game. See later like you normally see with the well card but a three game Siri's for a for a team that is the favorite like the Dodgers that that's that's a nerve ing and that's mentally exhausting. And I think that all these guys are a T end. Of their of their of their role, and it's because of how mental this game is. And how exhausting this this format in the October has been. So I argue with you. I mean, look, they don't have The physicality of 162 games scheduled, but mentally, I think it's every bit as challenging as anything we've ever seen. It's a fun argument. It's a good argument, and that's an interesting call. And they had that no days off to during the earlier rounds, too, so just a little bit of that, But it is Interesting. Hey, a little bit on tonight, Mike In that is here comes this kid out of active in high school, Local kid and ah, ST Mary's Gayle. We've talked about him with you, Tony Gonsouland. I know you like him, thinking he only sometimes faces. Four hitters, and then he's out. How do you see Dave Roberts managing this thing? I mean, can't a guy get out there for longer than inning in a third, or are we just into this? Bananas. We're going to see seven guys, etcetera, mean And how do you feel about it? I don't think so. I mean, I remember that when God's limits last start s for star in the big leagues, I mean in the World Series and You've got to be a little geeked up. Write what I think a sinkerballer you when your gig and you have a drilling running three. I think it really really hurts your stuff more than any other style of pitcher. Simply because you throw too hard. You throw through the break. You don't let your sink or sink this guy's a four pitch guy. He's strike door with a bass singer in the mid nineties that those aren't too many guys around. That's why I like him. So I think you know he goes out there today and and I don't think you're throwing that bad me give up on opposite field home run to Brandon Lounge and got him out of the ball game. But I think they're gonna let him goes as long as he's clean. And if you could get him past first couple of innings when you know he's settled down, I think they might even go with a little bit further. Look, they still have the luxury of being a head in a serious three games to two that affords him the luxury to go a little bit farther with your with your lead dog. However, when you say that, I mean no, nothing's guaranteed because everybody's rested. They had a day off. So so bottom line. I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this guy if he's stone. Good. Give him five. Maybe more. See what Dave Roberts does, and we'll see what Blake Snell does for the Rays. We can't let you go Mike without talk about the play that The thing that brought us all back the steal of home by Manny Margo. I liked it. They had had a 1st and 3rd nobody out and they couldn't get the runners in more goes daring fortune favors the brave. He was only out by an eyelash. Kershaw had Totally stay calm. I don't maybe a hated it. Maybe as a as I don't know. Maybe you want to give your hitter a chance. You tell me, Mike everything you think it's the World Series first attempted straight, steal a home since 1982 and Lonnie Smith did it. I mean that the Angels pulled a double steal. On the Giants, and Oh, too, that doesn't That's not nearly the same thing as a straight steal of home from a guy on third. What were all your thoughts on that from a baseball perspective? Well, I think it's an incredibly great play. When it works. It doesn't work. There's a horrible play right? And you know, it's just the risk that you that you have. When you make that decision. I understand it. He's way down the line. You get his third baseman playing off the bag. He's not hold. Leon, you've got You got Kershaw, who always has that motion out of the stretch where he raises his hands way up. I mean, I think Margo time to perfect and he really mean he wasn't that far away from being safe. I mean, It was a remarkable decision to go balls. You play button. It's gotta work. You cannot take yourself out of of of a situation where you have Runners in scoring position in a close ballgame. You can't run yourself out of an inning. They've done this about three times in the series, and I think that's catastrophic. You know that It's such an incredible stomach punch to your team that's hard to overcome for your team. When it works. You're Jackie Robinson. Who? By the way, I thought was out, right? Right. Right. When it works, you know you go down in the annals of World Series. History is one of the greatest. Uh, moment I'm building. Players ever with a successful steal at home, But when it doesn't work, it's it's awful. So that's what I thought about it. I didn't I didn't like it..

"Found that Lonnie Smith in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, world series was the last time that happened I was stunned that someone would do that but I thought it was a good try and I thought it was a great play and it didn't work out because Max Muncie screamed at Clayton Kershaw step off. That's what a first baseman yells to a left handed pitcher who can't see that guy going step off and Kershaw did a spectacular job of stepping off the rubber and making a pretty good throw to the plate under circumstances. If anything goes wrong, they're Manny Marco is safe the plate. Yeah Tim I'm glad to hear you say that because I gotta say again, you know we're in an age of analytics and teams are not going to attempt stolen bases like that at least from the bench. But I I actually I feel like this is a play that is absolutely going to be viewed through the prism of the result. If he had been safe, we would have been talking after the game this morning about what a gutsy play was. But because he was out, there's a lot of Chris Criticisms on the morning show today and Keyshawn Johnson was talking about that. And I just disagree I'm like look it's a left-handed pitcher. He's got that unusual of setup where he raises his hands over his head, you got a base runner. Getting a good leadoff third base the dodgers play in a shift. He had a clear shot I I. I thought it was worthwhile and remember the play was close enough. For a moment we wondered if the rates would actually challenge the call and Margot may have actually been safe and he just got nailed by a hair. Right mark. Sharon. Was All in favor of taking a chance in that situation and again analytics that you can't do that of course analytic say that. But when you're up against the dodgers who were hitting home runs at a record rate and they basically have a better roster than you, you have to take a chance, you have to push the envelope once in awhile can't just stand there toe and try to out slugged the dodgers. So many Margot took a chance and it was a calculated risk and it didn't work out but just because it didn't work it out, workout doesn't mean it was a terrible play because it wasn't Max Muncie hits a home run last night, and of course, we love backflips these days and bad throws and as soon as he did it last night tim a name popped into my head Reggie, Jackson Mister October that was the type of back flip that Reggie used to do. Yeah and look I'm okay with bad slips in the world series as long as it's not ridiculous and I didn't find much be ridiculous in any way and speaking of that by the way bustard. Now, the the dodgers have nine different guys who could home run in the world series. Nobody's ever done that in one world series, they've got home run from eight different spots in the batting order. No team has ever done that in the history of the world series and they've got now eight straight games in the postseason where they multi homer game. No one's ever done that in the history of the postseason. So this dodger power is is something that we can't can't recognize because it shows up every. Day, they hit a couple of homers and if you're not ready for, they're going to beat you that shows up every day and the quality of the at bats for the dodgers world series has been unbelievable. The other Dan zoom call I think it was before gained three. I ask Kevin Cash about that. Hey, compare this dodger lineup to other lineups. You've seen in your time in baseball and he goes you know what? That's a great question he goes they'd have to be at the top in terms of one through nine. The quality of the at bats are thrown out, which is why Tim I you know I thought that you know Blake Snell pitching in game two, he did fine. They. Talked to him before the game about how look the dodgers are not gonNA expand his own. You need to attack the strike zone. Any mostly did that but I still feel like with as many pitches he throws in his imprecise as he is. This is not a good match for the raising game six even though the dodgers are have a pen game. Right, there, there are no good match ups for the dodgers. Now, they have scored fifty nine runs in this postseason with two outs. No one. Else's even close to that. In the history of any postseason they had scored forty one runs on two out hits. No one in the history of the postseason is close to that, and it's market share a love to say to out hits, get you to heaven, and that's what the dodgers have done better than anyone in this season or really any postseason. When they they hit the ball the ballpark. But then when it comes time to get a big to out hit and driving around, they've done that better than anyone led by Max months who has been remarkable in those situations. Twelve rb is this postseason with two outs. All right, tim before we go last week, we learned that you run to the theme of Rocky as you do laps around the hotel. What's The music today when you're GONNA go running. I. Let's be clear again, Justin wear producers stuck some sort of computer out with the rocky theme high was not running to the rocky think he was poking fun at me. Okay. Let's also make sure that we know that in a real fight. Yo Adrian could beat me up in a real fight. Okay. So I will run today just to get some exercise but I not doing it to the rocky theme or anything else because nobody is worse in a fight than me. They. Bleacher tweets. Already bleacher tweets Mundy. First Up, we got Kyle Benning at Kyle underscore benning he rates, and how does the end of game for rank and all time world series game finishes wow. What an incredibly entertaining game, the whole way through and what a crazy turn of events to walk it off. Where does it stand buster the People WanNa know well, and we've been talking about it during the podcast Taylor what about for you? Where does it stand for you in terms of world series games? I don't think it's at the top for me. I mean just recency bias but watching that the game seven of cubs Indians in the rain delay and all that that was pretty wild. But this ending was bananas I, I was going nuts in my house my wife woke up. She was like what is going on someone breaking into our home so I Thoroughly enjoyed it. Next up, we got Eric at e Miller seventy six. He writes in flew into Dallas and hit games two and three decide to take last night often hit games five and six instead in terms of greatest world series games of all time. How bad did I screw up missing game for Yikes? Eric. That is that's tough. Yeah. Eric. When I read your tweet I thought of Robin Williams his character and goodwill hunting you remember that right? Oh Yeah. Let's let's play the clip here. To twelve..

"Reporter and a producer L. Dot Com and Sarah you know there's no question in this era of analytics nobody would try to steal home ordered from bench. Can you just put some numbers on an attempted steal home? Yeah. So I mean talk was a pretty interesting play I. Mean You know obviously so unexpected and you know we know Kevin cash that after the game, but it's fun to see something we don't see a whole lot and to your point we really really don't see this much. We haven't seen obviously still home even in the tempt in the world series two, thousand, two with Brad Fulmer, we haven't really seen a straight steal attempt since nineteen eighty, two with Lonnie Smith. And you know league-wide stolen base percentage with actually like the highest it's been as far as it's been tracked in two thousand twenty but that is because so few guys try to steal these days. There are only twelve attempted steals a poem in the regular season, which if we prorate that over a full season, it would be tied for the third fewest in any season with like twenty fifteen and twenty thirteen and right up there with these years that we've seen lately. But Tom Tango who works MLB DOT COM together, this really interesting sort of comparison with like cost benefit analysis based on the percentage of the play. So when Margot was standing on third the raise win expectancy. They had to win was forty, two point, one percent. If he had been successful on that, it would have gone up to fifty four point, two percent but instead to drop to thirty, five point, six percent when he was out at home. So in total, the cost of the play was zero point, six, five winced compared to a benefit of point one to one wins I know that's kind of weird to think of wins in that decimal, but bear with me. So basically based on cost benefit. So if you those numbers together. And you consider what was worth versus what wasn't the risk would have been worth it. If Margo thought, he had about thirty five percent chance of being safe. So obviously, we're not inside his head. We don't know how likely he thought it was, but he's a fast guy is pretty good base runner. So he must have thought he had a pretty good chance but obviously, that's a pretty complex in we don't see this whole lot. That's why because you need to be pretty sure that you're pretty close to being at least fifty fifty. For being safe and he was almost safe I liked the play you know I'm going to ask him Kirk about that coming up. Let's the numbers game number three. So number three is three two. So that's the lead. The dodgers now have in this series, it's the eighth time in franchise history, they've taken a three two lead at a best of seven postseason series. They're six and one in the prior seven series with the only loss coming in the nineteen fifty, two world series. But then will we get a game seven is The other question. So the sixth series wins for the dodgers looking at it from their perspective in those three to leads to came in game six, nineteen, one world series in nineteen fifty nine world series the other four did coming game seven, the twenty eighteen in the nineteen eighty eight NFC us. Sixty five world series in fifty five world series. So if feels like we're going to get a game seventy nine oh, we don't know today's the day will see what tomorrow feels like but daughters in a pretty good historically number two. Number two is sixty point, two percent. So that's the current percentage of runs. The dodgers have scored. This postseason with two ouston feels like we've been tracking this all postseason but especially lately. So sixty point two percents would be the highest percentage of runs scored with two outs in a single postseason for any team that played at least ten games by a decent amount. You know they at one point were sixty point six than even higher in the midst of games. The nineteen ninety two braves has that record right now fifty. Nine point three percents two thousand red sox are second on Lewis Fifty Point, seven percent. So it feels like if the dodgers continue to play their game, what we've seen from them, they're going to we abyss or at least come close and it's so funny that it feels like you they get to two outs and it doesn't feel like the ending is open obviously at a certain point, it's probably a little bit random, but it's you know it's out this far fifty nine of their ninety eight routes have been to out. Number One. Number one is sixty, six point seven we won't with how the dodgers are scoring around. So onto go with how the razor scoring a lot of runs. So sixty six, point, seven percent, the raise runs as postseason have been scored via the home run, which will be the highest rate in a single season. Again, with that minimal of Chiang Games and wall scoring with two outs seems to be working for the dodgers. I would say that scoring via home runs does not really seem to. be working overall for the rate. Obviously, they've made it this far. We saw them not Hindi home runs last night they still scored two runs. They did not win the game and I think that for them to really be successful here and given the dodgers pitching and everything else that percentage needs to go down a little bit over the potential next two games. If they're going to win this world series serve report ago I was curious about where you would put that game four on. Your list of World Series Games how would you characterize what you saw on game four and compare that to other games all night it's so hard to rank it i. mean I think that you know you almost need to bring out different types of descriptors right? I. Mean it was insane but it was really insane in that final play. There were some games that felt like they were insane throughout the game or so many different things happened but I would certainly put it. Towards the top in terms of craziest most unexpected I mean that happens and I was just sitting in of my computer for a solid two minutes like, wow, like I couldn't even think, okay. What's the context? What should I be doing right now because I was just like did that just happen what what just happened and I needed to see it again like three times before I could really get my brain going again and that doesn't happen a whole lot I mean twenty sixteen game. Was obviously with the rain delay and everything else in the historic nature That was really something. We had the game in twenty seventeen were there were the most run home runs hit in extras in game two in two thousand seventeen We obviously at twenty eighteen, we were there for longer than a cross country flight but I would say that this had a really really strong marking on people even just from that one play. Thank Syria with a lot of fun. It was. Seam.

"Of a of a blooper or a failure. It is going to be remembered for decades gates in decades. In this exercises the Bartman play and that is kind of the opposite where the cubs going on to to allow hit after hit. An Alex is Aaron. Did they blow this big lead. where it can't all be tied to the one single play in the stands and yet the one single plane the sands what's remembered? I think this is the opposite. Where Grisham there's just not enough intrigue or romance to the play itself and so innocence? Can I think gets washed away in the larger sense of of the hater meltdown. Yeah and I think we're more apt to forgive a physical else mistake than a mental mistake. I think that's part of the Merkel's Boehner one reason why we talk about Merkel's ponies because it's called Merkel's Boehner and everyone wants to say markle's Boehner but beyond that like if there's a base running mistake if someone just Does something wrong. They're thinking about it wrong. I think that tend to live on in infamy more so than just not getting your glove down or something that I could be wrong about that. But there's something about just sort of thinking through a play wrong as opposed to just well. It's hard to catch a baseball or hit a baseball or whatever so. I think we're less forgiving of just a a mental mistake like Lonnie Smith is a another example of just a base running mistake. That's why did you do that. And you can watch it over and over again and say why did you do do that. I think. Also in Merkel's Boehner's case. There is so much dispute about what actually happened. And they're still some mystery about what actually really happen and we'll never know what happens because there's no replace or everything. It was nineteen thousand eight so like the Wikipedia page the end of the first paragraph. Says it has has been described as the most controversial game in baseball history. Well nothing controversial about the Trent Christian play. Just you know he didn't make the play. So what are we going to say about got it. I guess you know the the snodgrass dropped ball that rob mentioned. That was just a a drop Paul so I guess this sort of thing can live on Obviously Bill Buckner could have testified to that. But I think really rickles Boehner. It's a the fact that we can't really know what happened. And we can't watch it and so so we're kind of combing through all the different testimony and trying to figure out what happened which is not something that can really happen in baseball anymore because we know what happened. We got cameras everywhere. I guess with Bartman. Maybe there was some dispute but not really even right like we saw what happened. I think there's dispute about whether that the thing that actually cost the cubs or visit the subsequent place but like there's no dispute about what actually happened so you can't break it down like as pruder film or something and you know debate for for decades because there's nothing to debate there Yeah all right so I think we can end there all right. I should note by the way the white sox and the cubs are not separated by all that much in projected true talent right now. According to Fan Graphs projected waited twenty twenty. Winning percentage which I believe is not yet account for schedule cubs are at five eighteen and the white sox are at five. Oh one so. The gap may not be big there and who knows the Red Sox are done yet. Couple of other things you have probably seen the news and the replay of the brawl that happened in the Venezuelan Winter League when former Major Leaguer Alex Romero uh-huh went all one Maher Shalal on Catcher Caprio. Lino there is a pitch behind him and he swung the bat at the catcher. When might wonder why this happened in thirteen to one game why we're tensions so high but this was the product of earlier bad blood in the game there had been hit by pitches and a an earlier brawl so this just boiled over again but swinging? Winging you'd never want to see that I mentioned this because podcast hero William tested. Joe Was a bit player in this saga. If you watch the replay you can see him running. In from first base ace to take part in the brawl. He was rejected in this game so he didn't play a central role but he was in the thick of it. He's just baseball's even when he's not doing anything himself he still sort or to find the cameras. Somehow and last note the Yankees signed pitcher. Nick Tropeano which gives us an occasion to mention the fact that in twenty thirteen when he was with the Astros Aa team team. He recorded a one pitch strikeout. He got a called strike in that was argued by the battery Vinnie Catcher Kala who stepped out of the batter's box to argue about that call all.

"When Mike Shannon was playing red shanties was the manager? Because I knew do of these guys that are local. Guys you know and things like that and and redwoods our neighbor In fact he was the first gentlemen to come over to our house the day after my father died To say was so sorry in to grab my sister Maureen and say I know you're daddy's gone now but if he he ever needed daddy I'm here for a while red shading tomorrow. Rain Yeah And so these are these are things that kind of made me you you know I was I was I always sit there. Mom always say your dad will be home in a few minutes because the first pitches in few minutes and I would pull up in front of the House Really Wadad. I watched I watched every game. I remember going to like I mean I I my first memory. Is You guys bring in Danny Home March seventy nine so two and a half right which I don't know if that's early or late for a first timer? Okay but my favorite thing. I guess I wasn't six six yet was when I went to my first cardinal game with you and mom and I thought that was just the greatest thing ever I mean I still still think of that as the greatest thing effort was August of eighty. Two and I think you came home. I think I was playing wiffle ball in the front yard on Vienna and with Mike Hutchinson and And I think you came home and said I've got tickets for the game. We're going to the game and I was so excited but having not gone and then I don't really remember anything about the cardinals pre-august of eighty-two that I don't know how why I was so excited about it but obviously cared I remember being excited and then I remember going to the game and being like I remember in all right. You stand here or look at world series. MVP in two months Darrell Porter will be standing right next to you in my mind. It's so magical. The whole thing is so magical that somehow Darrell darrelle porter's actually going to be standing next to me. What she meant was going to be in the background? I I it will be standing right. We're getting hamburger and I thought the hamburgers and credible I wouldn't eat a hamburger the right right now. If you gave me a thousand dollars but I remember I. I thought it was a hamburger. Oh Yeah night Lonnie Smith you remember this inside the park home because Jeffrey Leonard who became famous later for the one flap down by the giants were wearing these orange uniforms with white pants. In that ballpark was so big. You know you could have gotten an inside the park. Baloney Smith Fast Helmet would fly off and he was around the basis of an as he's around the basis. You're saying I've never seen this before an inside the park on the next x day Glenn Brummer stole home knew that that was the cornell. I didn't know the giants on Sunday night. That was my first game. plummer steals home the next day and then in two months they win the world series series. And I think if I go to the game and it some you know crappy game and if they're just you know whatever having kind of middling year I don't know if I ever get into the cardinals as much as I did but that's what I wound up. That's that it became. It's like a gambler. Who has I bet right? You know what I'm saying yeah and And and so I was so into it. I remember when they would be on the west coast. You would write like thing like a note as to what happened the game whether or not they won or lost and left at my sock drawer. You remember this. No Oh my God. Oh I don't remember that I remember. Wow but ensure that was me. It was a neighbor who really And and and I remember waking up and I'd have this like anxieties. I walked over over the sock drawer like did they win or did they lose dead serious. You know I mean I was that into our. Wow and so like the eighty five world series. I can remember remember when that Shit happened in game. Six is mom wouldn watch. He'd be walking around outside. That stuff still goes on goes on campus wide man Dan. Jack Pendleton was Over watching it when that happened You know I'm talking about the blown call and and everything so you know that disaster Ostermann. Mom's saying walking up and down the street hear people screaming when when Denkinger blew the call. Oh Gosh Yeah. eighty-seven watching with you and the cardinals loss to the twins wins. I remember being this huge Notre Dame fan that you are the for Notre Dame fans you say Phantom clip and they know exactly. If they're old enough they know who you're talking rocket Ismail Against Colorado. That was brutally what you really cared. I was having a good day until you brought that up. We're GONNA get because I really yeah And I remember screaming and screaming. Like you're so excited Greeks Day I don't scream like that auditees returning that thing and then it gets called back. I mean Holy Shit so we experienced that thinking the cardinals world series together in eighty five thinking Notre Dame. I Dunno name GonNa win the National National Championship that year but they would have beaten Colorado Orange Bowl in ninety on the phantom clip as it's called Sameer that Missouri the fifth down I think for that matter So I remember those things but as far as intensity on sports. I don't feel like you mimic that. And then my intensity playing. I don't know where I got that from but I definitely finally had it and then Danny was an was e- much better athlete. I don't think that's even up for debate. But I don't think he had the same intensity though he's a little you guy he's the Kinda Guy Story if you say one of the four doesn't fit wouldn't it be Danny Right. Am I right on that year. Mars intense. I know yes I think he Out of all of them. Kevin Are Danny Smith because minor. Slow right right. Yeah and and Danny's Kinda guy scores seventy seven Seventy two seventy with a second ago. You want him at the free throw right well. Oh He's just championship the Buzzer. If I'm not mistaken Ryan. He did receive the you know and I couldn't have been more happy brother absolutely and and for him I think he's like all right. You know the baskets there's a layup what else am I gonNa do Ryan you know. It was great story home. I almost had a half court shot. Aquifer didn't I tell the story right one he actually won the championship at the Buzzer. Does you know and I ran down there because 'cause I knew all those kids because they played soccer on the soccer team coached and I ran down there and they sedan. God you'll remember this day the rest of your life and he looked at me I'll never Forgetting Goes Dad. Can I get a coke. I'm going by yeah. You can have the stadium. You WanNa Dan you know unbelievable and in sports are huge part of my life and I honestly went to Saint. Louis you high and I don't know if this speaks to you and mom encouraging us to pursue anything or if you're just like this guy so delusional we're not going to ruin it for them honestly thinking I was going to play for the cardinals. Oh absolutely yeah I know that. No ooh that wasn't until I got rushmere but even then I'm like okay. I'M GONNA make sure I make the tea my sophomore year which I did yes Instill thinking okay. Well then. That's good now. I made the team so now I can still play for the card. I'm absolutely absolutely like okay. That's that's not no but I thought that I believe I believe believe you did that but I remember and I and I'll tell people this and I may have mentioned on the radio in the past but the reason why once I got cut my junior year. Then it's like okay this this might not workout this whole cardinal writing at this right. Maybe we need to plan right call an audible. Is I remember watching Lou Holtz. Who of course you know you worshiped as the head coach of Notre Dame and I? I don't know why he was talking about this at a press conference as press conference Roy so random I remember him saying this press conference not like an interview says find something you love to do and find somebody dumb enough to pay how you do it and I've lived by that. I really great line but I mean it was. It was like a press conference getting ready for like some shit bag team where he probably was acting. Elevate to beat us you know. And there's like forty point favorites and And that for whatever reason that stuck with I think it's because I was working at Petro's bussing tables and I hated it so much that I thought to myself I can't I can't get in this spot the rest of my life where I'm working for people who I know aren't more intelligent. You know I and I don't necessarily have in that comes off. I know I realized that comes off the wrong way but I mean they were. They were really really kind either. We're real happy and I thought this is awful awful And I gotta get a spot. Were you know I don't deal with this in my life on a day-to-day basis and I'm i. I think you had me working like fifteen. What was that about? I just think to me back. I guess maybe it worked out because it instilled work ethic would God. I hated it and it was right enough being you know at that time.

And he'll now skate out to the line and drop it behind himself to Kane standing next to the hawk net Keith along the left boards rink white pass for Seabrook. New fire it down the boards in behind the redwing net Howard out to stop it. They'll Pavel the puck around. The left wing side. He's taken back by the wings, Wayne.

Tosses a soft backhander on goal? They score that one deflected off a couple of bodies and past Cam ward, he had about three people backing in on top of in there. I don't know if he ever saw the original shot or not, but it ends up in the back of the hawk net. Five three wins. Just as good as mine who scores this one. Might be Giovanni Shibani Smith looks like he's the celebrant for the goal. Everybody crashed in the front of the net. Just throw a little back end into the traffic. There's all kinds of people there in front of the net. Lonnie Smith's younger brother Jamal Smith for the Dallas Stars. I don't know if he gets a piece of this. Maybe Luke Witkowski was standing in front of the net. I don't know if Giovanni Smith got any piece of this puck. But hit banks off to begin with and then off the defenseman focused into the net. Cam wards, given a five goals. Fifteen shops a tough night for him. In some ways. You can't fault them out much. You can do on that little playoff bouncing all around in front of the net. Good. Do. Good news is it's happening during the preseason Bill. You get the kinks worked out at this time of year. And then when you get into the regular season. Sure that doesn't happen. They have given up to Smith at this point. Giovanni Smith scoring for the wings. That's his first goal of the preseason. We'll get an icing call here against the Red Wings.

"He actually got closer to you at a time period than his dad, not because there was any problem with him in his dad is as he was spending so much so much time with with you in those, I guess than in nineteen nineties. I suppose when he was first starting out. You know, my my my children were is this the same age as Joe was of course, but you know, if your dad tells you something or your own hotels or something, you're gonna pay more at this dude, yong-chol let's face it. Always say. It's always like that. Okay. It's like who took it to your baseball game? Who took you to your first football game? It was either father mother, an aunt, an uncle, a brother or sister or something like that. Okay. Do you remember that always? Absolutely. Yep. You know what? The the night of my first cardinal game, which will always remember August of eighty two was the night before. One of your signature calls the first night I went to a cardinal game Lonnie Smith at inside the park science and the next day that was a Saturday night. The next day, Glenn Brummer stole home. Yeah, I'll remember that one for a long time. You know what I remember? I remember it was how ridiculous it was, but I also remember the bike on him safe instead of calling the ball strike. Also remember the San Francisco manager was out there five or ten minutes after the game still arguing with the home plate. I'm buying. By the ballpark. Maybe it was just one of those unique situation. That's what's so wonderful about our game of baseball and let x general and you go to the ballpark. That's when we go out to eat. We don't know what we're gonna see where we might see a guy make a hole in one ring. I see a guy and make a nine or twelve on a whole. I mean, you just never know what's going to happen. When I go to the ballpark tonight I may see a no hitter perfect game gamer guy. Hit sixty six base hits or at five a month. You just never know what's going to happen because. The script is not written. There's nothing to follow. You guys just go do it. I think what I'm trying to think of my my lifetime of cardinal baseball history which begins with that night in nineteen eighty two. And then fortunately less than two months later, they win a World Series. So I was hooked right away. I feel like if I had to think of the moment that gave me the greatest excitement because it came out of nowhere. And then also it's important was David freezes triple with two strikes in game six of the two thousand eleven World Series. Is there a more go? That was the key play in that series. Okay. In for mammals thing that that right they there was a pretty good player and why he would let that bog over his head. I, it is still beyond me, that was the biggest play of that entire series, right. And of course everybody remembers the home run David hidden Ryan so, but that triple in their stumping, how many times is David flees gonna hit a triple that might be the only one..

"Willie mcgee and lonnie smith and pendleton and all those guys you know a team that could beat you on a multitude of different ways they could play the hit and run game you know the construction of the basics into doubles doubles into triples they sacrificed wanders along steel a base pitch well and they could also hit the ball out of the park and more teams back then and even you know going back even five ten years ago it seemed more teams were able to have a multi pronged attack on offense and it was not just so one dimensional as far as how the game is being played now as far as the shift is concerned you know look i i'm i'm kind of torn on this to be quite honest with you as far as all the shifting that's being done in the game in this day and age because one part of me says that you know what there's nothing that is in the rule book that says you can't take all nine or all eight players on well actually you got to take the pitcher and the catcher away so all seven defenders outside the pitcher and the catcher you could put them in single file line behind second base if you want out into center field i mean there's nothing in the rule book that says that you can't do that and then you talk about how the lack of judgement that hitters are reluctant to make by going the other way with pictures or trying to stop these teams from over shifting by simply laying down bunce down the third base line which was a guaranteed basit the today's players seems to be very reluctant to do those kinds of things for whatever the reason and so you know one part of me says that if one team the defensive team is making an adjustment the shift then the other team on offense should make a readjustment and do something to beat the shift but if these look if these teams if these players are going to be reluctant to do this kind of a thing to get around the shifts then you're going to continue to see balls that are hit you know that are used to be a basis that are hit right into the teeth of a shift out second basement is playing and short right field the shortstop is pulled around toward the second base bag the third baseman is playing shortstop plays the whole left ladder the anfield is open and we're seeing more and more balls that are battered into play that are turned into outs that used to be base sets and so now people are calling for the elimination of the shift and i don't think that they should eliminate the shift in total i don't think they should do that but i do think that one of the things that they should do is to modify how you can shift and i thought that and i referenced this i think on the show last week when i talked about joe sherman find baseball columnist with the new york post who's been prone to some crazy radical ideas with some of his columns over the last several months but nonetheless i thought his his idea of a couple of weeks ago when he pinned that piece talking about the shift in that if you're going to allow the shift to remain in major league baseball than it should be something in which the infielders have to remain on the dirt portion of the infield and you can no longer have your second baseman or your shortstop playing on the outfield grass you're still going to see some balls that normally would be base hits stopped and turned into outs but i think a lot more basics will get through the infield if the infielders are mandated that they must remain on the infield dirt and that they cannot play on the outfield grass but what is going to happen i you know obviously i don't know i know that baseball is concerned about this attendance in the game is down this year the game has turned all tra one one dimensional and the strike out in the home run in the walk seems to be it's we're seeing very little in the way of teams manufacturing runs these days stringing together three and four consecutive hits the.
