"Cardinals for 50 years. He was 83. Shannon on Kay mx called Mark McGuire's then major league record 70th Homer back in 1998. He's done it again 70 home runs. Take a ride on that for history. Unbelievable. How can you end the season better than Big Mac is just done? Well, Shannon who retired in 2021 also won two world championships as a cards player that was in the 1960s, and 6 months after she was immortalized with a quarter Asian American Hollywood trailblazer anime Wong has received another accolade of firming her icon status. I would say it's better than being on the quarter. Yes, she's going to get her own Barbie doll. Really? I am now lobbying for ELISA abramowitz Barbie. Of course. Do you know that I did not have barbies? What did you have? You had a calculator like a test. Okay. I mean, I did play with calculators the ones that you could have put in the sun. And then you get them. Charged up. And I had just turned them over and write dirty words. Yes, we did with our counsel. So my mother was in the early childhood education field. And so we did a lot of collage making with scraps of John this explains a lot. Barbies were not really relevant. I don't know. I guess I'm not the mainstream.

"And when it comes to these mega contracts and these long contracts, the precedent says bunker that it does not almost ever work out for the team. So here's what I've done to demonstrate that point. I took the top 50 contracts in history by total value. The average player output of that group is two more per season. 12 and a half $1 million per war, those teams are paying. In other words, it's really, really bad value. So not only will we not have any liquidity if I'm allowed to use a financial sort of down the road. But these are investments that themselves have proven to be volatile historically. I can for the life of me, wrap my head around the fact of giving a 30 year old player an 11 year contract knowing that for the second half of that thing, he is very likely to be an albatross. And if you're, say, if your team is owned by Steve Cohen or a team with the infrastructure of the Yankees or maybe even the dodges you might be able to get away with it. But then San Diego Padres, it's not like you can just give that contract that someone else like you can in the NBA. They're going to be eating those deals for a really long time and it's going to wind up being an exceedingly painful process for that fan base. Yeah, it's going to be fascinating because the way this is setting up somebody's going to be really, really right. Maybe that's the Padres and somebody's going to be really, really wrong because they're definitely a huge divide in opinions over what they've been doing this spring. You and I off air have been trading notes about Aaron judge's home run over under, which when I first heard them this year for a guy who had 62 home runs last year, seem really low to me. Take us through that. Yeah, so 43 and a half, you've seen, I've seen as high as 46 and a half. Either way, whatever sports book you're using, you're getting something like 45. My reflex is probably the same as yours and everyone else's. Pound me over. For every 162 games, Aaron judge has played. He averages 49 home runs in the whole history of baseball. The whole history. Only Mark McGuire has averaged more. There's actually also some pretty good historical precedent for him to run it back. So I looked at the average home run output for every player that's ever hit a ever hit 60 homers in the season. I looked at the season after. The average is actually 49, which is considerably higher than I thought. There's obviously two other factors to consider here. One is you're going to stay healthy because he's had issues. He's missed on average 28 games per full season. So he's been bitten by the injury bug to some extent, probably not quite to the same extent that is often advertised. But secondly, and I think this is probably even more significant about there. The question is, are they going to pitch to him this year? Because you and I were both stunned by how many fastballs he saw in the second half of last season when he was just laying waste to the American League. I'm sure he's going to walk close to once again. His on base percentage is going to be preposterous. I think if he plays a 150 games, he'll hit more than 50 home runs this season, but all it takes is one nagging injury and perhaps the lead that's just going to be totally averse to pitching to him when I think the rest of the Atlanta is actually kind of ordinary to throw that off. So here's The X Factor and all this. And I'll just say this having watched a lot of games and getting a sense for sort of the rhythm of how guys are pitching with this new pitch clock. I think that there's going to be a spike in the percentage of fastballs use this year. I think if that makes sense, because it felt like, especially with relievers, you know, the guy who had the great slider would throw one in that he backed up behind the mound and sort of gather himself and collect rebound physically, recover 25 seconds. He'd throw another bastard slider. That can't happen this year. And so I think they're I have a loose theory at this point that they're going to be more fastballs, maybe even for our judge. Does that make sense? It does, and you have given me the assignment now of looking at fastball usage this spring in comparison to other years, just to see if at least in the early going that passes the smell test. All right, give me the best stat. We're going to hear all week. So I am the president of the Juan Soto fan club, as has been well established on this podcast. But buster, even I was astonished to uncover this statistic this week. You're going to help me deliver it. So Juan Soto has come to the plate 2000 794 times in his career. That includes his postseason plate appearances. 2794. Buster, my question for you is this. Of those 2794 plate appearances. What is your guess as to how many of those are against pitchers that are younger than he is? Wow. I'm going to say 8%. The answer is 13 point 5%. And his entire career wants photo has 13 played a balances against pitcher's younger than him. 2000 781 plate appearances against pitchers older than him. This is a guy with three silver sluggers. He's maybe all star team twice. He won the Derby. He's won a batting title. Two on base percent pitch titles. He was the best player on a World Series champion. And he's done all that despite facing an older pitcher. 99.5% of the time.

"Feels like a Herbert Herbert goes bonkers. He does those every few weeks too. Okay. All right, so those are all underdog picks. So we like since he plus one 50 falcons all turn line four and a half plus 5 60s is where we're going. Yeah. Or you want to throw in that cowboys want to do three teams or no, the 5 and a half, I like that too. That's a lot. The cowboys 5 and a half and with all three of them. All three, we've never done that. No, but we're desperate to do you remember what happened in industry when they tried to have a threesome. It just completely ruined it. I just binge all season two. Is there a more underappreciated show? It's so good. I just watched bronchitis Bill watch season one industry. I'm like, where have I been? How good is this show? And then I was starting to get mad, and then I realized, like, oh, 19 people told me to watch it. I know. The same thing with me. And I feel like your guys on the watch, they all talk about. Listen, but is there a better character than Eric? I love. Oh my God. He's so good. I'm like Mark McGuire. I'm not here to talk about the past. And all the people that told me to watch that show and ignore them. That show's fucking awesome. It's so good. Oh, thank you for saying it. The two lead actresses are fantastic. I don't know who plays yaz, but I think this is great. The hottest thing in the world. Oh my God. Great. Tangent. Okay, quick quick straight ups. The jets aren't going to beat Miami, are they? Oh, you know what? No way? Stay away, but teddy covers. It's like 41 and 20 against the spread. I would almost like, I almost feel like the jets would rather face two other than teddy because teddy is such a game manager and what he can do. He's not going to make mistakes and that defense is so opportunistic. They only win when they get those interceptions. So I think the dolphins win, but I think the jets keep that close. Well, it's dolphins minus three. Yeah, I think that's a pretty accurate line. It's probably going to be a four or two point game. What do you see with the jets defense that you'd like just out of curiosity? They were good last week. And Quinn and Williams is unblockable right now. And between Williams and Lawson and that safety group, which gets crushed here in New York, they've been playing well and like sauce is good at corner and reads good at corner. Good defense. Tennessee minus two and a half against the C words. In

"It was like the pre BlackBerry. Was it the Newton? Oh, yeah. You don't talk about Dolph, take a memo on your Newton. Beat up Martin and it changed it auto change it to eat up Martha. Great, great joke. Now I'm just gonna remember that and smile for the rest of the night here. Hey, by the way, did you catch I know I've disappointed you with my lack of Simpsons knowledge from time to time, but did you catch The Simpsons thing that I had snuck into a column the other day? I didn't. Now you have to tell me what it was. So we were, I think it was, I can't remember what I was writing about, but it was something about hoping that people forget about things. It might have been deshaun Watson, but I linked to, and I don't know if the link actually made it to the website or not. But the episode of The Simpsons where Mark McGuire is standing next to the fallen satellite and they find out that Major League Baseball is spying on everyone, and he says, do you want to know the horrible truth? Or do you want to hear me sock some dingers that everyone's looking at Channing dingers? So yeah, I put that in there for you, but it's good. Connor, I only go to season 8. So that's a little late. Yeah. Okay. Yep. Yep. Well, it's not late for me. It's just, it got significantly worse at that point. That's when I picked it up, see, that's kind of our age gap a little bit. Unfortunately. You got it, you got to go back. Got to get the DVDs, I'll send some VHS tapes. I still have all my Simpsons VHS tapes. And some of them have the old, it was the first year of Fox on NFL and you'll get the commercials where it's like James Brown giving you the score updates before they return to The Simpsons. It's pretty awesome. I just one quick VHS aside, I watched an episode of dinosaurs on VHS last weekend. Last weekend. Amazing. VHS tapes, man. I feel like that show probably held up better than the incredible clean just, I don't know. Idiotic premise? Yeah, I mean, I mean, it was a sitcom. It was a very average for the day, sitcom. Like no different than like step by step or full House. In any of its contemporaries, but it was just acted out by puppet dinosaurs. And I loved it. It was funnier than I remember it being. There's gotta be, it's probably a lot more meta than we realized too. I think I'll just put it out there. I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I feel like it would have been my vague memories of that show is it probably was a lot more meta than it got credit for back then. When nothing was meta. Everything was just genuine. You sent me The Simpsons tape, I'll send you the dinosaur's tapes and we'll have it. We'll get some weekend plans on the books. And we'll both scramble to find VCRs to watch them with. Good times. Through many changes to our daily routines over the past two years, life has required uninterrupted power.

Cooper cop on, again, another big receiver deal, but considering what went down in the receiver position, this off season, kind of a relative bargain, I don't want bargains not saying it, but I call this a fairly team friendly deal at this point. Yeah, I mean, anything coming off the season that he came off of anything that wasn't resetting the market. I think was going to be absolutely wild. I mean, Cooper Cup had one of the, I mean, all right, so let's not let's not let's not blow this completely out of proportion, but I don't know, probably one of the ten best seasons for a wide receiver in NFL history. Would you say? Yep. Yeah. And the way that the offense worked around him and you saw it when Odell Beckham went down, right? There is nothing else. If you can shut Cooper Cup down, which is really hard to do. But the Cardinals, I think, had some success and then that's when you started seeing Odell Beckham come out and play better. I think that's why the rams want Odell Beckham back if he's healthy. And why they went out and got Alan Robinson too. But he's so instrumental to what they do there. And it's so far above and beyond just catching balls. Like he is orchestrating stuff out there. And I mean, they don't win the Super Bowl without him. I mean, even that fourth and one, the jet sweep carry. I mean,.

"They don't know. Well, Larry Bird used to love playing against you. He told me. He loved the scoring forward, so we're more offense to defense in the west, the Western Conference swing had a few of those guys. He loved that trip. The perfect short, all those guys. People don't realize how good Kiki was. Oh my God. They don't understand how good Alex is a score. It was so many scores back then. And that's why people say, man, you scored 19,000 points and you didn't make an all 13. That's why. You had Mark McGuire. I mean, you had Larry Nance. You had Mike Mitchell, now in San Antonio, you know, James worthy. And all guys who had different types of games. And weren't really three point shooters, even you who were like a quote unquote, three point shooter. You probably averaged like, what? One a game at your point. 'cause you didn't take them. No. No. But now you'd be like, now you would have been, I think, three a game. I think you want to take a look. Oh my God. I'm making about 40 meals. 50 mil.

I never been around a team that has been disconnected ever. And I'm not just saying that loose. I've watched these guys all year. They are the real deal. It regards to being a team. And then this beautiful thing is. Well, you got to ask Monte. Deep down kind of happy to take that Lakers drop, right? Now, he said it was never offered because Phoenix just jumped the gun and they just offered him and they took him. He knew what he wanted. He knew he wanted to be able to control his environment. He knew he wanted to be able to do all the things that he probably didn't do when he was in New Orleans. And he wanted that second chance with a group of guys, young guys that would listen to him. And that's why he's here. And they're listening to them. He's like their dad, man. Bad granddad, all of the above. And coach. Well, I voted for him coach of the year. So I did have one.

"Can we call him the sultan? What can we do? What? It's inspired. Oh, you got one. Work the sultan into it. All right, well, you can burn the fairway roll on pod. You can hear him on the mismatch as well. He's been with us really since basically the start of the early rigor days. You're one of our first people we brought in doing a great job with kos. And congrats on all the jasta. Thanks guys. House and I buy ourselves now, we're going to talk about the baseball lockout. Which seems like it's going to last at least through April. The indications are from what I've heard. It's better for the baseball owners, just not to have baseball in April, which is why they've approached this whole thing the way they have. But that seems like something that's true. Just in general. We've learned this. Why can't they just start the season in May? I mean, I understand when you cram in a 162 games into a regular season and you have your postseason that starts getting into October, everybody's wearing winter coats to the games in October. Which is ridiculous. So I guess let's try to go through some of the issues because I tried to learn as much as I possibly could about. What are they actually arguing about? The big thing is the industry revenue for the last 17 years has risen every year. The amount of money they have brought in a baseball, which peaked in 2018, $10.7 billion. There's a 43% increase in revenue, just over the last two CBAs. The luxury tax is only increased by 16%. In the median salary of the players is dropped by 30%. So in 2015, it was 1.65, 2019 is 1.15. So the players are basically just fundamentally this is about there's more money coming in. The franchises are worth more. Fox is paying $5.1 billion for their new extension that starts this year. And yet all these things are broken and you owners don't seem like you want to fix it. You don't want to fix the luxury tax threshold. You don't want to fix the salary floor. You guys are making all this money. And you don't seem to care about some level of fairness that has now reached the point that we were just rather, you know, we're not going to move into fuck you mode unless you fix this. And the owners are like, cool. Well, fuck you too. How about this? No games in April. Nobody gets paid. We don't care. Like our TV contract doesn't really kick into the summer anyway. Nobody's even really focused on baseball in April. Masters, end of the NBA season, NHL playoff starts, basketball playoff starts, football draft. Baseball has become an afterthought in March and April, which was never the case before. So if we unwrap all of this, fundamentally, what is the perfect baseball season for you? Oh, that's interesting. So what would the psycho be? Would it start in May and go, would you start it in March? No, 'cause it can still snow in many cities on the east coast in March. And it could definitely snow in Denver. And the Midwest. Would you go may to mid September playoffs right away and it goes to like October 20th? I mean, isn't that kind of how it is now? September, October 20th is kind of the end of the season, isn't it? Basically, right? Well, there's season now. We go to October, then we have playoffs, and sometimes that's now stretching into November 1st, second, third, and you had these your biggest games of the year and it's fucking freezing. Yeah, it's 30°. Well, I mean, I want to do like a super big picture kind of thing because part of the thing that's informing the leverage that the owners seem to possess here. They clearly think that they have leverage over the players. They've had a great run of having their way with the players. For what feels like a full decade probably longer. But the players are realizing the 2016 one they got worked. And I think part of what informs that is baseball's lost some of his prominence in our sports consciousness. It doesn't play as big a role. When we were young when we were coming up, I remember how outraged we were about the 94 lockout about it was it blew our minds that they canceled the World Series that Ken griffey's MVP season and the home run chase got sort of taken away from the one good exposure. The one good exposure year got wiped basically wiped away. Basically, we're done. We're out. That's right. Exactly. And then when you got your steroids brought us back. Well, I brought everybody back. We had a home run chase. We counter Ripken and steroids. We had a good back and then the mark McGuire. I'm back. The guy Albert bell, look at this guy, we're back. You caught a great Yankees Red Sox rivalry in the early 2000s. The Yankees win in 96. That brings back the biggest franchise. Yeah. Maguire says the 98 Yankees Red Sox all the way through, cubs, baartman, 2003 of these 2003 playoffs. Yes. The cubs on one end choking. The Red Sox at the other end choking. And then everything leads to 2004 and that decade was really good. Looking back. Yeah. And that was going through at least the first giants World Series, but I remember when we started grantland, we didn't have a baseball writer right away. And it was like a real hole, you know? I was like, we got to get a baseball writer. This is baseball so huge. What are we doing? And now it's, you know, you think like in 2022, we're at this stage where there's going to be a lockout. There's no springs. There is a lockout. A lot of the actual seasons. There's no spring training. And how many conversations have you had about it? This is the first. This is the first time you and I have talked about it. We talk all the time. You sharing me these details. I haven't bothered getting that invested in it. Part of why that is, though, is because the industry was forecasting that this labor, this lockout was going to be coming down the pike that they worked their way through. Their own version of the bubble season that they had, that they were going to just get through this most recent season. Yeah, it was like hearing about your friends going to get separated in April. He's moving out. So it's like that even news that it's happening. The only noteworthy thing to me that's happened in baseball. I mean, the Nats won the World Series in 2019 and I went to many those World Series games playoff games and World Series games. It was incredible in Washington and then COVID hit and really just decimated. We missed out on all of the juicy ASTRO stuff. Right. Like that whole season of the whole every fan base had the opportunity to punish Houston. We were deprived of that. And it really hasn't picked back up in terms of just the Shohei Ohtani was the story for baseball last season. He was, but I also wasn't watching angels games. Like I watched John Moran on Monday night as we discussed. And I didn't care if I saw ohtani. And if he did anything, I would just see it on Twitter. It's like, oh, he hit a Homer. I'll watch it on Twitter. That's the leverage that the owners clearly think they possess, right? Well, what they really possess is the chance to completely reinvent the sport, which I think we're at the point. They've been doing it. You talked about 94. What are we really have going on in 94? We had four sports. We had boxing. The Internet barely was really getting started. We had video games and we had music and movies and TV and all that stuff to keep us interested. And now there's, I mean, the NBA and the NFL were huge parts of our lives. But baseball was right there with a yeah, oh, easily. I think really right there all the way to probably the mid 2000s. And then it started to shift, but man, now you think, and it's not just like, I'm not going to do the thing where it's like, young people in baseball, because I've done it a million times. There's so many different ways you have to capture people under 25 and baseball's not doing any of them. But even if you just look at sports, like we have the UFC now, we have two, we have the WWE and AW, golf, I feel like has kind of made a comeback. You have fucking F one. Which is the Netflix show. By the way, plowing through that Netflix. Into it. Yeah, I'm a season that fan. It's great. I'm going to get into the season. There's just sports that have either reinvented themselves or come onto the scene or figured out whatever, whereas baseball has done anything. And some of the stuff that's on the table, they're talking about universal DH 14 team playoffs, which you're for, I think is ridiculous. I don't have any problem with it. More games banning the shift. How to fix.

"So unless they're all assholes, you know, they have their opinions for one reason or another. Now, numerically, I can count. I can do the math. He's got Hall of Fame statistics. I understand that. And I could be wrong, but I've never voted for anybody that I suspected was cheating on the PEDs on the steroids, whatever. He did fail a drug test. His career path was very suspicious and I never voted for bonds, Clemens, palmero, Maguire, Sosa, down the line. And I wasn't going to just because he's a hometown guy, changed my standards on this. So I understand I'm the jackass in this. I get it. You know, but like max says, you know, I'm not the one who hit the positive PED test. So anyway, those are my standards. I understand those who vote differently, don't care that. To tell you the truth, it'd be a lot easier if Major League Baseball got rid of these standards character clause, and you're supposed to consider these other things and just went by the numbers. It'd be so much easier to vote for Hall of Fame on that football does that. O. J. Simpson's in the Hall of Fame. Who cares? You know, that's it. I mean, his numbers are his numbers. He's in the Hall of Fame. If baseball did that, I would vote for all these guys, because like I said, I can count. I know David Ortiz Barry Bonds Mark McGuire have Hall of Fame numbers. I think the first question I have for you, Dan, is where's the transparency, right? Because we know that he tested positive, but we don't know exactly what he tested positive for. Now, in the past, he's talked about that. He said that he would love to know, but I'm thinking what's the difference between now and what 7 9 ten years ago where he could have won his own personal investigation or hired somebody. Or two, where's Major League Baseball with that transparency, saying, this is what he that's a positive point. Well, max knows this as well as any as any athlete, you know, within the games, there's guys that get preferential treatment and guys that get favored more than other guys. That's just the nature of the world. And Major League Baseball loves David Ortiz. He's Santa Claus. He's good for the game. They're kind of they're struggling to have a young audience. They're struggling to get a market share of the sports pie. And so that they can ill afford to turn away from a guy who's as popular as he is. So he basically got a presidential partner from the commissioner of baseball for a positive test. The other guys that tested positive that were named in that were Sammy Sosa, Alex Rodriguez, and Manny Ramirez. None of them got the same presidential pardon. David Ortiz got it. So whatever I understand and this is just the way it goes. So baseball loves him and he loves him back and he's going to the Hall of Fame and good for him. So my little vote didn't matter in neither did the other 87 guys who didn't vote for him. Well, it does matter..

"It is a good perspective where we can sit from our vantage point and just talk about the way the league handled it. But on. That is the on the field issue, right? The on the field issue is half the league or whatever knew that the other half was using. And that's why bonds started doing it. Remember, bonds watched their and he was like, I'm better than those guys, and they're juicing. And they're getting all the headlines and they're the ones who were the heroes and everything. He said fuck this. Yeah, and he also read into it racism, which I think is correct. The world was so happy to have Mark McGuire be the one to win. And so he snapped and he started using and then it rocketed him past both of them into the into a stratosphere, no one will ever reach again. And so what glanville says is essentially what we already know from bonds and other people was going on, which is half the league knew the other half was using. They were fed up with it. They hated watching it. They hated the fact that they had work competing on an uneven playing field. And so then more guys started doing it just to keep up. And again, when the league never says, hey, everyone. What do you stop? Why don't you stop using this stuff? You can't get angry at them. I'm sorry. It's not ideal. It's not ethical. It's not great, but you can't punish them institutionally for something that they didn't that wasn't told to them was worthy of punishment. Well, our two heroes from that era, our guy Pedro. Yeah. His stats during that era when you consider what was going on and how different they were, from every other pitching status, one of the great achievements in the history of the sport. The 99 seasons that he had, I think, it's pretty easy to make the argument that the two greatest pitching seasons of all time. With everything that was going on. His league, his ERA, his ERA plus, and one of those years was over 300, which means he was three times better than the average for sure, which is his area. It felt that way in the moment. Yeah, like the league ERA was four 93 in his one 93 or something. It's bananas what he did. So you have him. The other hero is our guy rich garces, aka, agua, who you have all these PD guys. He comes in. He's built like a penguin. He's 280 pounds. It's just running in from the bullpen, he's winded and was able to get guys out in the 8th inning. Those are my two heroes from there. I mean, it truly heroic. Heroes is the right word. It was rich Garth was the most fun player in baseball that one year that he was dominating somehow in the 8th inning. I've never seen more joy in the stands than him running out from the bullpen. And drunk drunk mes and people like myself just pure delight. Hold the gear just like this is amazing. I can't believe I'm here for this. And then he would strike out to the next three guys. Yeah, it's why also bartolo colon is the greatest baseball ever created. It's because another one. Yeah. Yeah. Him hitting that home run might be the great single greatest baseball moment of all time. Don't look alone. So your new book is called how to be perfect. You're gonna pop on the prestige TV podcast with me. One of the next two weeks, we both love chairs. We're probably in the top 5 of all time people who love cheers and we're gonna do a Hall of Fame episode about an episode from the first probably three seasons. We don't know what coach. And there's a lot of Hall of Fame candidates. So feel free to flood either of our Twitter timelines with cheers recommendations. But the great thing about that show is I don't even know where we start with. There's no definitive, oh, it's gotta be that show. Like with lost that's like, oh, like Mallory and Joey and Robinson, they did season three finale of lost. It's like, yeah, that makes sense. I get it. Cheers, there's 20 candidates. Yeah, I mean, it is the sitcom for exactly that reason, which is from the pilot on. They knew exactly what they were doing. All the characters were fully formed. One of the episodes where I pitched to you to do is the bottle cap happen. It's the lucky box. Which I think is like the 6th episode they did or something. It's so early. And you usually don't get to that level of quality and character development. Everything else until season three of the show, and they were audited in a matter of weeks. So yeah, let us know which one you would examine because we at the first blush of doing this. We had Ken candidates in 30 seconds. And.
"mark mcguire" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"So tell me what you think of this because I was talking about this with Joe Paz manski. He and I do a podcast called the podcast for meadowlark and here's my, it wasn't I don't even know if it was actually my idea, but I believe it's a good idea. If you are in that club, the Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Gary Sheffield, Manny Romero, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGuire club of guys who did something to kind of cheat or embarrass the game. My pitch is, instead of having to wait 5 years after you retire, it's a ten year penalty. You have to wait 15 years. And then after 15 years, you remove you essentially remove the morals clause from the voting. And you just say, you're only voting on the merits of their on field accomplishments. Now, that would require the writers to actually do that, right? It would require that you can't look inside a person's brain. You don't know what they're thinking about or what they're not. But at least it would be like a prison sentence and then it's like, okay, now you've served your time. And you've gotten out and you are treated like anybody else. What do you think of that idea? I was thinking you could go further. You can't get into your dead. You don't get to enjoy the ceremony. We'll let you in. But what if what if you let's imagine that something like what I'm proposing happens, right? I would say 15 year prison sentence, not that I'd like to know. I like the idea, though. Let's say 50 year prison sentence. And then you get Mark McGuire, 65 year old 70 year old Mark McGwire gets in. And he gets up there and he says, taking storage was the biggest mistake I ever made. And I regret it. And I'm so sorry to the people I hurt. And I'm sorry to the fans of St. Louis. Which, by the way, some of those guys always wanted to say and just the union or their PR guys shouldn't. But you could tell McGuire and Jason giambi, remember that weird press conference Gianni had where he just kept saying, I'm sorry, and they were like, what are you sorry for? And he's like, I'm not going to get into it. I'm sorry. So like, I think that would be to some degree healing, right? If these guys serve their time, got in. And then we're allowed to just talk about it where it wouldn't affect them. And in part, I think they haven't apologized or come totally clean because they were worried that it would affect whether they got into the Hall of Fame or not, right? So there needs to be a rule. No one has ever come up with the rule for how we do this. And as a result, it's a mess and baseball is just covering his eyes with his hands and hoping that it all goes away. So here's I like everything about this idea except for one thing. So how do you explain the guy that we don't know for sure if anything bad happened with them or not? Now, the non Red Sox fans would default to our guy. David Ortiz for that. Man has a saint and I will not hear a single word set against him. Yeah, also, where's your proof? He ended up in some weird New York Times thing that said he took something that could have been sudafed. Yeah. We still don't know what it was, and also everything was legal 2004 and earlier. And I've just never understood the artist thing. It's become this twisted. It reminds me of a lot of the stuff that happens in the actual country where just a piece of a fat gets twisted and then becomes like a different fact reality to people. I think that people think like he was in a biogenesis clinic and got caught. It's like, that's not what happened. No, and obviously we are we're biased in his favor. However, I feel I feel the same way about anyone who is in that leaked Mitchell report thing, which is like, for two reasons. One, it was leaked illegally. And I don't think that should be held against anybody. But more way more importantly, there were no rules. There was no testing regimen. There was no actual rule for what you should do or not do in baseball. There was a vague rule about competitive whatever they called it. But everybody was ignoring that. And just because everybody's doing it doesn't make it right. I'm just saying that the difference between someone like bonds about whom there is an entire book written where we know exactly what he did and when he did it where he bought it, how he went about it all that stuff. There's a difference between that and someone who showed up on the Mitchell report, test, which was supposed to be anonymous, and which we still don't to this day, even know what they were testing. We don't know if it was like Ritalin. We literally don't know what it was because whatever was on that list. It was like, now we sound like apologists, but I'm telling you, go research this. Anyone who's listening. There was like a hundred different things that qualified for did you take any of these things? So we don't know what it was. We don't know. It's also illegal to even share it. And by the way, I feel the same way about Sheffield. I feel the same way about any Yankee from anyone who is on that list. That was not anything approaching scientific rigor. And so that all of that data is meaningless. Everyone who showed up by the report, I would ignore, and I would not hold against anyone. And then RT is played, obviously at a time. Starting in 2000, whatever was 2004, 5, where there was an actual testing regimen. And so that remained the same. Right. For ten more years. And so if you played during the testing regimen and didn't test positive, then in my opinion, you can not hold you can't say, well, that person did steroids. If you're going to take it into account and you think it matters, you at least have to have a system for how you take into account. And I feel like now, what happened was everybody from that era. First of all, everybody from that era was probably doing something. Was our teas doing something? Probably. I don't know. What the hell do I know? But like so many guys where everyone, you know what's so funny is everyone's like, oh, Scott Roland. Scott rolling got a boost this year because he's seen as a clean player because there's never been any smoke. How the fuck do we know? We don't know. Have you seen go back and look at pictures of Scott Roland? Neptune was jacked. Like, was he doing something? I don't know. I have no idea. Nope. Like everyone from that time had it's like a coin flip, whether or not they were using something. It's just the point is that the league didn't care. And if the league didn't care, you can't hold against them. We're right about Ortiz. This is not two homers defending Ortiz. We're correct. Where I fall apart is.
"mark mcguire" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"I felt like I liked baseball as much as I had in a long time last year. And I don't know whether it's at the point in my life, but I just really enjoyed the season. I think a lot of it had to do with I think our Red Sox team was pretty endearing both Red Sox fans. So I don't feel the guy who's like, just sucks, this part of my life's over. I still like baseball. Yeah, I don't know if it's our generation and up basically. You're a little younger than me, but basically 40 years old and up. And then under 40, it's just going to continue to create. I don't know how it plays out. But the Hall of Fame, this is another thing where this was such a big part of our life as baseball fans, this haul that made sense and we understood the parameters and it really meant something when you made it. And then as always with the stuff, PDs just PDs, first of all, made it impossible to figure out what the records were and how to compare things. I know we have some stats like Warren certain things. But I don't know how you look at Barry Bonds stats from 1999 to 2005 and figure out how to compare that to anything. Much less some of the other stuff we had. But then on top of it, the moralism, which I've been writing about this, I wrote a column, I think, you know, 6 O 7 about how stupid it was that Mark McGuire was being the Hall of Fame because I always thought the point of the Hall of Fame was it's a museum. It captures all of the people that mattered in baseball. And you can't tell me that Barry Bonds and Maguire and Clemens and all these dudes, they mattered. They were the biggest stars we had. I never felt the need to get more all about it because just put it on the plaque, put them in their own room, but if the goal is like you and I had to take our sons to the Hall of Fame to not have certain people in the Hall of Fame to me seems insane. Where do you stand on this? Oh, exactly in the same place. And I'll say a couple things about this. First of all, and everyone always points this out whenever this debate comes up. There are already terrible people in the whole of so many of them. Basically, baseball was segregated not by rule. There was no law that said no black people allowed. It was just a sort of gentleman's agreement. And one of the gentlemen who formed the agreement was cap Anson, who was just like we should never let black people that everyone was like, you're right, cap Anson. Cap answers in the Hall of Fame. And by the way, it's now, you know, 2022, no one cares about cap Anson. Like no one cares. People care about Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens and Gary Sheffield and many Ramirez and Sam Sosa, Mark McGwire. And if the idea of the museum is to tell the story of baseball, okay, great. Tell the story. Yeah, on cap addons plaque. Write a little note that says, by the way, this is one of the guys who literally said no black people should be allowed. He was a great player, and he this is not. It's like the time, you know what I always think of is the time man of the year a person of the year. Hitler was the time man of the year one year because the point isn't, who's the best nicest person? The point is who is the person who's presence in the universe was the most important or noteworthy? And in 19 whatever it was, 40, I think, or 39 or 38, it was Adolf Hitler. They weren't endorsing him as a dude. They were saying this guy mattered in the world. In the worst possible way. In literally maybe the worst way that anyone has ever mattered, but that's what that award or whatever you want to call it is designed to do. So if the point of the museum is simply to tell the story, then you got to tell the whole story. You got to tell the whole story of steroids. You can't ignore it. You have to tell the story of the cream and the clear and of Alex Rodriguez and down in Miami buying stuff in a paper bag. You got to tell the whole deal. And the problem with it in my mind has always been that MLB and the museum are related, their cousins, but they're not the same organization. It was started by a dude who liked baseball and was like, hey, you chef from museum to write about baseball and it celebrate the history of baseball. So there's this weird alliance where it's not actually run by the league, the people who vote on it are writers. It's not MLB officials or ex players or anything. It's the guys who cover the game. And so it's just this odd thing where like the rules are so unclear. There's a morals clause in the voting, but again, Rogers hornsby and cap Anson and all these guys. They're all in. So that's clearly been ignored. It's Tom yaki in there? It's a good question I don't know. But if he's in there, basically, get Jackie Robinson off the field. Not a great guy. So it's just, I think you're right. I have a pitch..
"mark mcguire" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"He's stirred up the pot a little bit when it came out on Tuesday that he didn't vote for one David Ortiz. He didn't vote for anybody for the Hall of Fame except Jeff Kent. And if you're telling me that Jeff Kent belongs in the baseball Hall of Fame over David Ortiz, given how much uncertainty there was regarding steroids and help me out here. Performance and hand PEDs. How much uncertainty there was over PEDs and the testing and that's what a lot of writers like myself feel about baseball in this era. There's so much unknown. Yes, a couple of tests come back positive and the rules were set. And that's why you have to come down hard as Chad Jennings said on my Red Sox meet podcast last week. He said, that's why he comes down hard on Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez because they broke the rules after the rules were definitively set in place. But in the early 2000s late 1990s, there was so much of a gray area that Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGuire, Roger Clemens, even, you know, Jeff Kent's name has never been mentioned with it, but his numbers took a major spike up at that point. You know, all of these great names thrown into the pot with the PED big question mark hanging over baseball. You know, you can say if you want that practically everybody was doing it, which I don't think that's fair because I think there were still a lot of players who went to the weight room, they did what they could to strengthen their body, but they weren't going to take any of the stuff, not because they didn't want to break the rules or bend the rules, but because they were concerned about what it would do to their body long-term. Long story short, I'm rambling here. I think it's ridiculous that Dan shaughnessy would not vote for David Ortiz, but would put Jeff Kent in the Hall of Fame. What is the deal with Jeff Kent? Why Jeff Kent? Well, let me bring up the numbers. I don't remember a ton of Jeff Kent's career. I can't remember him at the end..

"You know, and the best thing about Mike tread is not only does he have the big white farm power. I'm going to say this off the record. He's got African American speed. He is. You know that, mad when they see that big farm kid sprinting faster than that? That's not right. And then we get extra happy. Okay, let's go back on the record. The last thing you want to do, yes. Mike, you know, I don't know why you had to is it racist that you excluded them? Maybe it is. Maybe I just shouldn't. I thought home runs Barry Bonds or Hank Aaron comes to mind when home runs for some reason. I like to think of Babe Ruth and Mark McGuire. And Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle. As well as some even other Ted Williams, said a lot of home runs, you know? Not mentioning him. Ty Cobb had a lot of hitch, didn't it? Home runs, but hit a lot of hits. Yes. Get on the nose. So there's other talented people like. Vladimir Guerrero junior.

"Even have a TV. People are proud of you. You are prouder of not having a TV that I was when my kids were born. Yeah. I think we hate that. I don't want to even have a TV. We don't even have a TV. Really? So, I mean, when did you find out about 9 11 on like the 15th? How did that work? Well, I'm like, but are you because it's when you go, hey, have you seen have you seen little Nicki? But if you go like, hey, you know, have you seen this documentary on Netflix? I don't have a TV on watch TV. Are you aware that there's an invention called television and on that television? People show like don't be a dick. Okay, okay. Here's a hypothetical. I love I love hypothetical games. Okay. Who announces their thing first? The person that doesn't own a TV or vegans. Boy, that's tough. Well, are you having dinner with them? Oh, or cross fitters. Really? Because they have a T-shirt on this CrossFit and I go 7 days a week. And then I'll hashtag no days off. One of my all time favorite the onion headlines was Harvard graduate from Texas, not sure which to mention first. Yeah. That's pretty much it. It's a pretty solid one. Well, my favorite onion headline was Mark McGuire really likes to hit baseball's really fucking far. Just the obvious one. I love it. The first one I read. That's how I found out about the onion when it was my favorite article. It was like serial killer described by neighbors as serial killer. Perfect. This is genius. What is this? I have to find out. Yeah, yeah. It's like, no, no, we always sort of felt it was a serial killer on account of all the dead nurses in his yard. Right. I would tap on his basement window just to see if I would get a response frequently to see if there'd be someone trapped in there. No, so we totally saw this coming. It's amazing. I went through a thing on Twitter. I would just write jokes and go and just begin with. Most people don't know. And then most people don't know that you can quietly be a vegan organic food at the table. You don't even have to tell anyone around you. I have a new I have a new person that I hate even more than all the people I just described. Andrew Santino, great comic. I don't hate him. He's great. But he tweets Cheetos Santino. Yeah. He was in a Starbucks and he tweeted this photo of a guy who brought his entire desktop to a Starbucks. No, it was fortune. Fortune. Unfortunately, unfortunately, she goes, oh, what are we gonna do about it? They're arresting black guys for sitting in a Starbucks movie. This guy brought his whole full laptop. I mean, not even a laptop is desktop computer. Desktop computer is like that as big as my TV and it was huge. You could look it up. Set it up and start working. Andrew Richard, but that was me or I did better. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So I saw him retweet it. So yeah. That's what I saw. Yeah. That's that person. That's specific person. That's my. That's my new number one worst person. No, I'm with you. I'm like, it's bad enough to sit there with your laptop and look around like is everyone seeing that. Is everybody see that writing? I mean, I'm just looking at my Facebook, but everyone looks like I am a writer everyone a whole desktop with it no, I hate it guys, guys, because back in like the 90s.

"For the 2021 season. It took the ten weeks. Here they are. I lost money, of course. Who lost more money on the chiefs of the Broncos this season? It's close. The boxer climbing their way up there too. And Texas LongHorn Justin? Yeah, I don't know. It's equal opportunity. I've lost every single team this year. But we threw dirt on this chiefs team just a little early. It looks like. It looks like every it was up for the takings for scariest team in the league. They're like no one's standing out. And they're like, let's just remind everybody who is the best. And what they re sign Travis Kelsey because I don't remember seeing that guy from like two months. The guy that came out there today and that fake punts and everything else and they just didn't first place again. Desean Jackson just giving the ball to the other team, that was happening. We had safeties dropping interceptions. It was a weird game. The score didn't reflect the game. Real quick that the Sean Jackson thing. So he's made a career of this, right? Like, he'll have a breakaway touchdown and he'll slow down at three and taunt the receivers. Does he have like a tick something in his head where he needs it more challenging? Why did he turn into the only guy he needed to beat? He was so much faster. And then everybody else, whatever. What was it? Was that a ten point game or a 13 point game when that happened? Because it did feel like they were going to go toe to toe for scores and then all of a sudden. It was 13, I would have come to 6. I think that's what it was. Well, the big story, forget the chiefs. We'll talk about them later. The big story. This was the weekend that a cowboys patriot Super Bowl I started to really think about. What it would do for our friendship. Combined how many seats we'd have to ask for because the games in LA, what would the pod be like before the game? What would the pod be like that night? Would we have to wait a couple hours until the loser cooled off? Wow. It really started to feel real today, so. I think you're right. Someone pointed out to me, one of our friends pointed out, like, between you and bill, this is the biggest point differential for wins. You guys have had in the same day, right? Probably what was it like 70 point when combined? Yeah. And cowboys went over the falcons and your shellacking of the browns. You guys look good. I mean, the falcons are technically were a playoff team in the NFC before today. But you beat up on a pretty sturdy browns team. Didn't look like it, but it looked like they were going to be physical with you. They took a 7 month and laid and you never, you never look back after that. We scored 45 straight. Your game was over in two minutes. It was 7 nothing and Matt Ryan was doing the backpedal look nervous thing and then you just scored every time you hit the ball. Our game, it looked like it was going to be a old school, maybe there's ten possessions total in the game slugfest, and then the browns as soon as you get the lead on them. It's kind of over for them. With baker with one arm, he's 21 7, you might as well be up 40 to 7 at that point. Yeah, I don't know, well first of all, your guy, Mac and cheat. I mean, just we never talked about the holding when he pulled the Jersey. Should have been suspended four games. I don't even know why they let him play today. But Mac and chee went out and just went nuts 19 for 23, one 98 three touchdowns. I don't know if you know case kingdom is better than baker. I definitely don't think they should resign him. I really don't. I think there's some nice options for the browns out there. Could be Rogers could be Wilson could be Jimmy G, I take all those guys plus the top two or three incoming draftees too. Did you come back Jones back in sheet? You could be offensive rookie of the year. The best pick in the draft if we have a redraft he goes either first or second depending on how I feel about Trevor the fumble Lawrence. Yeah. You got him back in sheet? 'cause he grabs somebody's ankle. People just hate the Patriots. It feels good on that. It feels it does that in the bear steelers game. Everybody's like, oh, great play, savvy. Oh, classic bears. 85 bears are back. Matt Jones, it's like cheater. Yeah, well, Mac and cheetahs too good to pass up. But I have to say from I didn't like it. This has to be, this is the first time you have bragging rights over Tom Brady, right? First time Belichick has bragging rights. I know you probably want a game when they've lost a few weeks ago. New Orleans I think you had one. That game. But this is right, this is like a week ago as far as that team in the playoffs. And to add to that, Tom Brady needed Belichick today. This is the kind of game probably the first time he missed him because with Belichick his coach, they don't lose that game coming off a buy off a loss. They don't look as unprepared as they did going to Washington. Team at like 31st in the league defensively and lose chase young early on. That was a disgusting display. So much like Mark McGuire, I'm not here to talk about the past. We're here to talk about the present and the future and his name is Mac Jones. Fact just was unbelievable. That gave today. Oh my God, I watch with Kyle Kyle can attest. I was letting out noises like Meg Ryan and the wind Harry met Sally deli. I was having a stroke. He was thread the needle, he's throwing like lob passes. He sent guys to double coverage, doing little play action. It really really felt like early 2000s pets, which I've been saying on this podcast for multiple weeks..

"We're back. I hope you joined our sponsor over there. And bought what they were selling. Totally. Rolling in the benjamins now. They're fantastic. Okay, Onion News Network. One of the most forwarded things I there's a couple that I give. I don't know was before or after your time he was there. But it is the porn star who is being boycotted because she uses the N word. Were you there for that? Is that a video or a newspaper headline? Was a video a video. I don't remember. I don't know, I was there for that. Oh, it's really hysterical. Basically, in a porno movie, one of the actresses who's having sex with a black guy lets out the N word and they go to adult bookstores and they're really deeply and she doesn't apology for using the N word in a sport is so racist anyway. And it just brilliant. Watch race is porn. It's really offensive. Yeah. That was what I like. What were some of the ones because I've watched all of them? What were some? I don't even remember. I mean, not to be like, God, I wrote so many. I mean, truly was so long ago. And like, the way it would work is you would pitch headlines for the videos. And then if they got picked, then they would be obviously scripted. And so sometimes you wrote the headline and then you were also assigned the script or sometimes it was your headline but someone else wrote the script or vice versa. So there was so much cross pollination that I don't even know. I understand that. But it was like truly the funniest people. And I love the onion before I work there. I would like print out articles to Friends to be like, did you see? And they're like, what are you doing? And so when I was finding locations at the onion, I very politely asked the head writer at the time Carol Cole who's incredible if I could just sit in the writer's meetings. They would happen to Tuesday nights after work. And I would just sit in the back and listen. And I really learned so much about writing and structure and tone and I just loved the satirical tone of the onion and I really did feel like I really learned so much there. No, let's take, honestly, that's like that's a graduate degree in college. Truly, truly. I remember somebody actually by mail this is a long ago it was sent me the first thing I ever saw. First on January I ever saw was serial killer described by neighbors as serial killer. And when they were all saying like, no, we always you know, that's serial killer vibe and I was quiet. I kept himself totally came out. My favorite one that I always remember is that Mark McGuire mets hitting baseball's really far is really fucking fun. I promise steroid shit came out. It was like, no, I just, it's really fucking fun to hit baseballs bar. So after the onion, did you go to SNL after that? What was your. What was it? I was the onion for a while. I was there for maybe like 2007 to 2011 or something like that. Okay. And then I had a applied for SNL a couple times and not gotten it. And so I was like, okay, well, I tried. And I've been in New York a while. So I'll do the thing you do, then you move to LA. So I worked at funny or die for a couple of months. I moved to LA and then I applied for SNL one more time and I weirdly as soon as I moved to LA got it. So I moved right back..

"Him doing it. It's always very interesting in the psyche of the sports fan about what they'll accept and what they won't accept accept anything that makes them feel good and i say that because what the bash brothers did made a lot of people feel good. I mean feel good about baseball. If you're as fan felt good about that if you were a fan of a home run you certainly felt good about that. And i don't think that they you know they really cared how they were hitting the home runs. I'll never forget the one of the greatest home run. I've witnessed in my career in baseball. Was the home run in toronto by jose. Canseco in that new stadium. They're against the toronto blue jays in the playoffs. I've said this time and time again. If there had not been a top on that stadium it would have come down newfoundland. I mean it was hit in the third deck in the third deck. And i mean when you see those things and you you remember back on them. I could imagine what it must have been like for a kid. Absolute a mouth dropping off that you would have had and other kids would have had in seeing these type of accomplishments by these two athlete right. That was amazing. i maybe hit the.

And then after the game I was talking to michael zegarra as tiger for and he was saying jose's in the shower after the game saying i didn't get it all so It's amazing and and not only teenagers to see that type of power but also other players in baseball and saying and looking at what he's doing in the money he's earning and say what is he doing at best at this moment to earn all this money to get all this tension so i think that's another pete that peaked a lot of players interest into wondering what jose was doing to do all this stuff. So yeah i said third deck. Only because we're i was in the broadcast booth. It went out of sight. I could not see word when it did eventually land up in the end the fifth. What do you want people to take away from. This book day. I think just I think the bash brothers legacy can saco mcguire legacy. And i think we pointed to the steroid era. The bodybuilding movement in baseball player ushered. But i think we gotta point to the sluggers these two sluggers that This there's significance in baseball history in history several. He talked to several executive and old time old time baseball scouts and players. They'll tell you can say mcguire changes game. They transformed the game. transformed salaries. You know what can take with mcguire by the time they came into the big leagues and eighty five eighty six for mcguire to the time they retired in two thousand one home run home runs increased by thirty percent so i think this to to shed light on the significance of the consejo mcguire legacy in baseball history whether it was beneficial or detrimental They have high significance in In baseball history and observation from you and that is that we know. Jose can say we'll never get inducted into the baseball hall of fame and mark mcguire. A lot of people thought was maybe on the edge and probably would make in so. Let me ask you If this not happen do you think that people might view consejo in a way that might get him consideration or would have gotten him consideration for the hall of fame and do you think people will ever move past this and that mark maguire will ever get in the hall of. I think i think you know. Obviously jose wrote this book. These books that you know and sabotage his chances of going to the hall of fame. But i think some riders. I've talked to have argued that. Jose was the best player in the game in the late eighties and early nineties. So if we go by that. During that time he was the great player. Kirby puckett was great player during his time and he earned so i think And i think obviously of jose. Jose retired thirty eight. I think if he would have pleaded play three or four more years in kid five hundred fifty dollars blackballed at thirty. Yeah well so so. I think he could have. He could have definitely hit. The five hundred home runs and that would've if you look at statistics and numbers. That would have made him eligible for the hall of fame. And you know so. I think i think he had a little chance. But i think in the end Just the whole book thing. Pretty much smeared his chances now as far as maguire steroids. Don't make a play great. I think that they Go where mcguire are already a caliber of player. They were talented player. So i think that That you know bodybuilding supplements is complemented their their talent in about thirty seconds. You happy with the way. This book came out there I'm happy i think i pour my heart into it. Did a lot of research four years of research. I talked to several players in former teammates before the congressional hearings in two thousand and four so a lot of were lot more open side. That started this book before. Any of the steroid books came out so i think this was a book that i you know. Obsessed to have a book length passion for a subject so this is a subject that was dear to me that carried me through all the obstacles. And you know that came my way. So i'm very happy.

"Two new wildfires in Northern California have forced thousands of people to evacuate. Law enforcement say three people have died in the SOG fire in Shasta County. Separately, the glass fired north of San Francisco has put more than 65,000 people under evacuation orders from member station Kake, Hedy Kevin Stark reports. Officials say the wildfire exploded in size at one point burning across four miles in about six hours. Hot winds drove the flames across Napa Valley, showering members on tinder dry vegetation, sparking more fire and destroying homes. Mark McGuire, a state senator from Sonoma County, said firefighters worked aggressively to save as many homes as possible. This fire is the biggest threat biggest threat to public safety. More than count for me when I remind folks is We do have significant fires across the state as difficult as last night was. Firefighters save much more than were lost. Winds have subsided, but the region is still dry, which will make this an active firefight for the foreseeable future.
