"What's up Timothy? Hey, rich, one time listener, first time caller. Where have you been? What exit are you from, Tim? Originally, I'm from exit 17 off the Parkway. Okay. Not the turnpike, but now I'm down by showy, so I'll make this four off the top. Oh, so right around where Doctor Oz list. Oh, okay, cool. Hopefully for about 13 years and then moved out to sounds interesting. So what's on your mind? Well, I don't know, you know, sometimes I have a hard time interpreting these jets games and I know there's a lot of hype around pre season, but I just wanted to kind of pick your brain on the first half of the jet falcons game. And so there's obviously a lot of narratives going on with Zach Wilson going down. Flacco having to come in and kind of be the starter. Then we wanted to probably I would imagine get our second and third string guys with a lot more work. Assuming that we may need some depth this season. But like, how did you interpret the quality of the offense and defense in the first half versus the quality in the second half? Wow. Look at you, Tim. Here's the thing. I'll be honest with you, man. I was flipping back and forth between jets falcons and mets yanks. Because right now, right now, my yanks need my support and I'm locked in on that and I'm particularly nervous about the way things are going there and the jets in a preseason game against the falcons. Here's the way I look at it, Tim. Is that clearly they need Zach Wilson to get back and get back soon. They're not making the playoffs. The ultimate of respect to Mike white and Joe Flacco. We need to see we need to see Garrett Wilson evaluated properly and breeze hall evaluated properly. And we need to see the rest of the offense take a step forward and that's going to happen with Zach Wilson. We got to get him back out there in healthy and see what he can do and go through whatever lumps he's going to go through or heaven forbid he can take a literal step and then a monster figurative step forward. That said, I am really bullish on the jets defense. How does that sound? I'm trying to control myself. But I look at sauce gardener and I see a defensive rookie of the year. I just do. I see a guy that's not going to get thrown at. I see a guy that's going to actually not get thrown at and help that pass rush that Jermaine Johnson looks really good. The rest of that pass rush I think is much improved and I just think that kid in the back of the defense taking away what he's going to take away. And I think the first couple of opponents from the AFC north because the jets are in the AFC north for the first month of the season. They're going to test them. They might throw in his direction, and I think that's going to be a mistake, and I think a lot of teams are going to learn that fast. And I think he is going to be not just an anchor on the field, but in the locker room and in the community, I am so high on sauce gardener, but anybody who takes in the show knows that I have been that since I saw him physically in person for the first time at the combine and pounded the table for him until I heard his name thankfully in Las Vegas to the jets. That's the way I'm looking at him. How does that sound? I'm super bullish on Mark Gardner too because you got to call him songs. You gotta call him sauce too. Well, no, he doesn't get the sauce, right? Until he gets his first 6 6 in the record. Well, you know what, that's the look fickle way of looking at it, and I appreciate you taking in the show. Tim, thanks, callback. Let's chat, I like that. That's good. But he saw us here. Planet sounds. Right. You are watching fourth quarter mop up time. No, I was too busy watching the yanks in the mets. He wants you to really break down the preseason game. I like wait, what? I was watching just to see what the final score was. What? For the, oh, of the football game. Did you really wager on that? I did not actually. Okay, good for you. Would it surprise you if he did though? No, yeah. Yanks Matt's big game, yanks needed it. They got it. They actually beat Max Scherzer, judge actually homered off of Max Scherzer after having a dreadful appearance against Max Scherzer in queens, a couple of weeks ago. So but that's not what most of the country and everybody is taking out from this game. Look, I'm a die hard Yankee fan. I grew up in Yankee Stadium. I've seen all types. I have seen all types on the fore train. I've seen all types in the bleachers. I've seen all types. I used to my friends and I in the stump Merrill Yankee years used to get general admission seats, which is like in the top 5 rows of the stadium we went right behind home plate. I saw the bird's eye view, it was amazing. I went to bat day as a kid. I did all sorts of stuff. Okay, I've been there and done that. I have seen all types and just when you thought you've seen them all, I'm a 53 year old man. I've never seen this before. This man needs to be identified. He is poking a hole using his straw into the tops and bottoms of a hot dog and then sucking the meat out of the straw. And then placing the straw away, and then now that there is a tube in the tube of the hot dog, he is sipping his beard through the hot dog. Now I've heard about, hey, you go to the game, let's have a hot dog and a beer. Not a hot dog in the beer. Using the hot dog as a conveyance to consume the beer. I've never seen this before. I don't understand it. But at least he doesn't take the innards part of the hot dog doesn't go to waste. He sucks it out of the straw. Just in case what, he wants to use the straw later. I mean, I don't understand. And then places in the beer, like in front of others, like he's in public, like sir, people can see you. Genius. People can see you do this. By the way, genius move. It's amazing. Why? I wish I thought of that. Does the beer taste better sucking it through the hot dog? Probably. Two of my favorite things. Put together. Hot dog and a beer is the classic combination. You go to the game. I'm gonna have a hot dog and a beer. It's all gonna be here. You eat the hot dog, and you drink the beer. You don't pop a hole through the hot dog, suck out the meat from the straw. Place the straw away, pause. Then you don't go ahead and use the hot dog to consume your beer. Through the hot dog. Your mother's watching, sir. So, together, this human being, I will ask anybody who wants to chime in 8 four four two O four rich. You want to put it on Twitter? Yeah. Genius? Mad men. Those are the two choices. Is this person a genius? Or a madman? He's a man. That's what I choose. Hannibal lecter would do this if he was somehow free. And at a baseball game. That's like the fava bean, and the nice chianti. You don't poke a hole through the fava bean and consume the chianti. That guy's a madman. All right, it's up on Twitter at rich eisen show. Dude at Yankees last night. Like do that in your own home. Get a room. I'm at the point now where every time I see something like this, I just, I go, this person, this isn't real, and they're just doing this to try to make a viral video. Of course, I saw this. I saw this on John boy media. Yeah, me too. And so the point is that gives you pause that says, maybe this is a setup, is because the camera was trained on this individual from start to finish, which makes me think either a, it's a setup or B, B, that wasn't his first hot dog strong and beer.

"There was so many things now on your plate under Felipe Alou, and it seemed like it got bigger and better for you What happened in those first couple of years with Felipe Alou, the change the dynamics of you being that bench coach Yeah, well, I I You know, I think it was a gradual progression. But I will say this, you know, we went to the World Series with dusty in 2000 and two and then you know, uh, dusty parts ways with the organization and goes to Chicago and sleep comes in. And I remember talking to sleep a about staying And he said, Hey, you guys, you guys just went to the seventh game of the World Series. I'd love to have you I don't want to change anything and And that was the same thing when we you know, started in spring training. Uh, he let us do everything we did. We had a great coaching staff and he let us do you know everything that we were doing myself the same responsibility they had under dusty And then it was just great to be around him because after the games, you know that's where I learned about red wine, and I I learned a lot of a lot of stuff about the game that Felipe loved to share. He loved to talk. He loved the whole court. After the ball games, drinking his wine, and I learned an awful lot about the game. Well again once Felipe Alou kind of moved past, then Bruce Bochy came in 2000 and seven Bruce Bochy came in. And you were with Bruce Bochy. And I tell you what the staff that you guys put together. And the and the coaching staff. So I mean, when you start looking back at who was there, and then it started opening up where communications started getting better, More and more. Of coaches and players were starting at communication, that one on one drills and things like that, and I want to throw these names to you, and I really would like to hear what you have in one word saving when you start thinking of Bruce Bochy. Tim Flannery, Billy Hayes, Roberto Kelly, Hensley Meulens, Dave Righetti, Mark Gardner. What is a good word for all those people? Well, it was special, of course, with the success we had so in no, If anything, you have to say family and, you know, family on the coaching staff, and we were. It was like family working for Brian Sabean. And, you know, Giants ownership. That's the way we felt. And it was. It was a special time and special coaching staff.

"That, um, that is comparable to this team. As far as you know, when they clan or the record at a certain point. I can't remember exactly what it was. But that was the best he might play with US Giants he might played on self. Very disappointing to lose Skip on it in the first round. Yeah, you guys the 2000 team was the last team to be the first team in the majors to 90 hasn't happened in 21 years and then and then it was you guys are the only San Francisco teams ever to be the first teams to 90. The other one was 1921. Johnny McGraw doing his think so you got you. You guys on this team are the first the only teams in Giants history to be the first team to 90. Uh, yeah, but I know it's crazy, isn't it? Um, by the way, just you know, it's funny, Sean. Well, yeah, Go ahead. Do what you say. Well, I just think in 2000 expectations coming into the season were pretty high for that club Totally did it was for it was the first It was the first year in that new ballpark and Didn't start off well, but we end up with the best record in baseball at home that year, but this is a different group altogether. Totally. You guys had bonds. Kenton Birks in the 345. Billy Beane told me he thought that was the best 345 in baseball history. And and this team. This team doesn't even know who's hitting 3rd, 4th and 5th every day. One day, it's Tyra Strada. One day Slater in the three Hold Estrada in the five hole. You know what I mean? So wage wage juniors. We'll get into him in just a second. I don't know did a quick digression because you mentioned that 98 season burned into my head? That tough, tough loss of course. Field. Navy Perez offer Rob Men And then I remember the Monday playoff game at Wrigley, and then I never asked you about this show. There's a little bit of off the beaten path that 98 game at Wrigley. Tough loss. Steve Trachsel. What the hell was that? And then rod that got shot in? Seriously? What the hell was that? Sean? Human room. The thing that the thing that really hurt was was Rod Beck coming in to get that safe for the Cubs, his 51st save and he had been your team made a year earlier. I never asked you about Rod back. You guys have a good relationship. I love him and I miss him. Yeah, He's the best. Uh, Everybody had a good relationship a shooter because you're just happy. Go lucky Great Teammate. Just, uh, man. It's just It's sad to talk about him because, uh, us us she was still around. Um, Yeah, I know he was. He was great. I mean, I'll tell the story in, you know, in my first year in the big leagues Might have been my first start at home. A Candlestick. Um, I come into the weight room after a pitch and he had closed the game. And I wouldn't do something. Do some tubing or whatever it was. Yeah, I walk in, and he's on the on the stationary bike with ice pack on his elbow and his shoulder smoking a cigarette. And drinking a Coors light and I looked over and I was like, Hey, I just smiled like this is I go. This is the big league. Yeah, that's all time. I'm gonna I'm gonna burn that in my brain forever. Sean, that's fantastic in the South is the best and that hurt when he got that save against you guys In that game, he got Joe Carter on the ground. I think a comebacker I want to say And that was his 15 1st save that year, and he had been a giant the year before he got the double play ball from Eddy Merckx from Rich Murray. That's right, Daddy. Murray. Eddie. My said Rich. Yeah, Yeah. Eddie Murray. I mean, Yeah. 97 obviously daily. I think 97 saves thought that maybe he had, uh maybe he was losing a little bit, uh, physically brought in Berta Hernandez from the White Sox. Yeah. At the deadline in Roberto Close close some games that year was still shooters job, but you know Roberto was kind of the next man in line there. You could tell that the right because it was kind of on the wall and then you know he goes the Cubs the next year and like you mentioned 51 saved, so he wanted to prove to everybody, especially the Giants, and what a way for it to end for him and Harry Carey had passed the the off season before so You had the big balloon out right field of Harry's face. Uh, weird. Yes. Yeah. Just looming over a year. It was a really weird thing. And then Steve Trachsel goes out there and does what he does. And I think we had Mark Gardner on the mound. Cardi was pretty good. Well, he gave up. That's good. Yeah. Give it four runs. Yeah, wasn't bad and then And then we have a chick. We have a chance with shooter on the mound. We have a chance to tie the game. I believe with one swing of the bat and who comes up Joe Carter. I mean, you know, World World Series hero. Uh, what was it? You know, 10 years prior eight years prior to like, maybe this Maybe this is this is the right guy to be up right now. One big swinging the bat. We're back in this game and And a little bit of a buzzkill. There was Burke's hurt because I'm looking at, you know, he'd only pinch hit in that game underway. Didn't start him. Was he hurt? I don't remember him being hurt. No, I don't. But he would have been in the lineup. Had he not been. I mean, if you're able to pin shit, he probably wasn't hurt. Well, he just come over to the team. He had just come over to the team mid season. I guess I'm from the Rockies. Yeah, I remember. I forgot. You do it on the team in 98 I picture Ellis is 99 2000? Yeah. Yeah, that's that's where I remember him. But yeah, he must have been on the came over in the trade deadline. Trade. Uh, he he traded by the Rockies to the Giants for Darryl Hamilton, Jim Stoops. Nice trade by saves. Yeah..

"W who shell back to throw his past, bottled up in the air and intercepted the bear cats pick it off. My gardener comes down with the ball and the bear Cats had their first check takeaway of the game as sauce. Gardner has his third interception of the year. And Hoard the SM You gained the third interception of the season by Cincinnati Corner Ahmad Gardner and what's become a rarity, an opposing team throwing toward the sophomore quarterback. This week, he was named an Associated Press second team All American here on the same honor as his teammate. James Wiggins. Welcome back to Mercedes Benz Stadium. We are getting set for the Peach Bowl coming up at the top of the hour. It is obviously been a phenomenal season for Cincinnati's defense, anchored by its secondary and a big reason why the U. C D has been so good this season. Has been the play of the man they call sauce. Ahmad Gardener who, by the Way, was also named first Team All American by the Football Writers Association of America as well as U. S A. Today I talked with him on this week about what those postseason honors mean meant a lot in the That's not something like that I was like looking into. But when people brought it to my attention, you know that was really something that I was like Blessed to receive and everything. I think one of the really cool part about you being named. All American is you were joined on the team by your teammate your barricade teammate James Wiggins, who went from not playing at all last year to being named in a P. All Americans, So give us an idea of what you gained from playing with James. You didn't get by Not playing with James last year helped a lot having a veteran safety. Who would you like? Show me the ropes like, hang in there with me and everything, you know, Make sure that I get my I Q of and be able to grow fast as a cornerback. So yeah, that was great being able to play with him this year. I remember talking with Kobe Bryant early last season about you, and he had kind of taken you under his wing and look, he he gets He gets a lot of balls thrown in his direction because teams don't want to challenge you. And I want to ask you about that. But give me an idea of what you've learned from playing with Kobe Bryant. Um I learned a lot from my life how to be a leader, you know? Coming in, Like very young. I learned how to like. That all you on Lee joining the seniors, Those aren't the only people that can lead a team like cornerback can lead and president consulting work can also like I just learned how to be like a leader like that's the main road that he liked taught me. Keep my composure through everything and just lean everyone, no matter what position they play. Word travels fast in college football amount last year teams Darraji they challenge Do they threw your way this year? That's not happening. There will be long stretches in games where the ball doesn't come your way. Doesn't become a challenge to stay focused to stay engaged when More often than not the policy and coming in your direction. There's not a challenge as much, but I'll take that as a former respect, you know, Quarterback like I'm not a secret anymore. So you know, they know about me. So you know the consequences that that's in play like if they thought of my size, so Did you have to stay focused every time like because, you know, I never know when the ball is gonna end up getting going my way. I know you'll talk some trash Do you ever say to the other team's quarterback walking back? Dude, throw the ball my way once. Yeah, talking a little smack sometimes, but You know, I just play. I just got there and play football at the end of the day sophomore quarterback Mark Gardner with us in the pregame show this week. You have a pretty remarkable streak. We're one game away from completing your second full season and yet No team has beaten you for a touchdown. You haven't given up a touchdown and coverage. It goes without saying no, DB wants to give up a score. But is that streak in the back of your head providing maybe a little bit extra motivation. Most definitely, I can't. I just can't get lax.
