Here's baseball hall of Fame Voter Number One zero three. Rob Parker welcome into inside the Parker the all MLB. Podcast I'm your host Rob Parker water show. We have for you today. I up Mlb Hall of Famer Rod Karoo with that sweet swing. We'll talk about his new book. Also from the Marquee sports network, the cubs new TV network. We will talk to Cole Right. He will give us a preview about the twenty twenty cubs that and much more but I. It's getting robbed. Toledo off, it's getting rough and keep them up rob's heartache. The three biggest stories in major league baseball. Number One baseball fans relax I get it the initial talk between the owners and the players Union doesn't sound good. People are in panic, oh, my God or they not going to play baseball in twenty twenty. Will it be eighteen months before we see baseball again? I'm just not an CAM. I understand the players, not wanting to give up a lot of stuff that they've had to sacrifice for order to get, and I also wanted to stand the owners. The can't give out money that you don't have. This is going to be very different baseball season when you talk about. No concessions, no parking, no ballpark marchandise. That's a lot of money. Owners say it's forty percent of what they bring in get. The TV money is big and baseball lives off of it, but it's gotta be a compromise. We gotTa have baseball I do believe the two sides will figure this out. Work it out, and players have a vested interest, because if this thing goes awry, it'll be hard for next year. That free agents of guys who don't have contracts will feel good about ob in a good situation so I think this thing will get worked out. Both sides need to get this done and best of all and most of all America needs baseball during this time. July four star would be awesome number two I'm sorry. I'm not on board with the Universal D. H.. I understand they WANNA implemented just for this. Season because of the pandemic, what's going to be involved in pitchers and trying to protect pitchers? But I hope this isn't a precursor to a universal Da. The D. H. was introduced in the American League in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy twee. Bloomberg step to the plate for the New York Yankees. He was the first Dha ever. And the American League is headed. The National League is used it. They've played an American league. ballparks people always talk about it adds offense. Take Away Strategy though. In managers using pitchers pinch hitting doing other things I love the National League brand of Baseball I. Just do and this whole idea of saving pictures from getting hurt. I just don't remember too many pitchers ever getting hurt by batting or running the bases or whatever it just doesn't happen that often I think they understand their pitchers. And they run with caution. They hit with caution so. I'll accepted this year. I'm just hoping when the CBA is open, and they're talking about twenty twenty one and beyond that the D.. H. Is Not a part of baseball in the National League. Number three I'm sorry. I just don't get it time and time these stories keep coming out about Derek jeter being overrated I. Just you could go ahead and concoct all of your numbers and your pencil protectors and try to talk about. where he fits him when it comes to war, and all these other things and Try to convince people that Derek jeter was overrated I just. There's also an eye test. I I was in New York covering Derek Jeeter when he broke in with the Yankees. And I I just I mean I. Don't know what else to guy has to do is a lifetime three hundred batting average have way over the six most hits in the major leagues somewhere in that area. You know. Also won five world series may big. Plays to flip in Oakland the extra inning home run. In the playoffs against the Orioles. Go on and on and on I. Don't know what Derek jeeter needed to do to the he needed to get to every ground ball. To satisfy some people I know people want to say it was only because him playing in New York and that's why Derek Jeeter was a hell of a ball player a hall of Famer. The writers. All, but one voted for him on his first ballot to the hall of fame I think that rest my case, the people who covered the game the most and have seen play the most all agree. He's a hall of Famer, and it's not even debatable. Here comes the big interview. Listen Hendler so good. I! Let's welcome to the PODCAST. One of the all-time Baseball Greats Hall of Famer Rod Koru with that beautiful swing Rod karoo welcome to inside the Parker. Thank you Sir could be on? It and Rod.

People that we need to understand about. You know my heart attack my heart transplant. Kidney Transplant. to let people being aware of. The problems they can have and. To get themselves, get their arts kicked out and. not do the. stay away from the things that they're doing. That's the create heart disease because you know art diseases is number on killer United States so. It's a lot about that it's it's some more baseball things that. that I was questioned about. And It's. Just that people be aware you know. Take care of your heart. You stories incredible born on a train in Panama. and to to make it to. All the way through poverty and All kinds of hardships growing up all the way to the major leagues, and then not just making it to the major leagues, but being one of the all time greats, the nineteen sixty seven AL rookie of the year, two, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy seven. Al Most Valuable Player. What when when you think about your career and all the things you did and what what stands out the most. Is there any moment that you? That just makes you smile even the today. Well, you know rob just here because being in the big leagues because it's something that I promised my mom that I wanted to do when I was about seven or eight years old. And Fortunately I was Lucky enough, and that was less with the talent to to hit a baseball. The play a game that little boy display. And go go all the way to the top of my profession. And I'm I'm proud of the way that I stayed around for nineteen years. I. Always consistent my job because that's what you WanNa do when when you play sports or any anything else in life that you wanNA. Do you look for consistency and? I was able to. Perform. Consistently for nineteen years. And Rod Karuizawa guests on inside the Parker and for. Younger people millennials who maybe don't even know who rod Karoo is, you need to Google on. Go to wikipedia to check it out. Because rod crew was one of the greatest contact hitters who ever played the game? He wants seven batting titles in the American League the second most AO batting titles in the history of baseball behind ty Cobb so this guy could swing a bat and back in. Twenty sixteen. The Ale batting title was renamed the Rod Karoo American. League batting title in your honor Rod you. Can you teach people how to hit? Or is it just a natural thing? I hand coordination I know you could give people how to have better at bats, but can you actually teach people how to hit? You know anything so robbed and I think that you know if you teach him to simple things. which I try to do. you can make you can make guys. Good hitters better hit and I enjoy it because it's it's fun. It's fun for me to teach and When you know what you're talking about, and you try to make it simple and that confused guys Yeah I I. I believe that you can you know you? You also have to have some? Knowledge of what you WanNa do and how you should go about it, so I've been through it all and I was fortunate enough to come out pretty good. How about the game and the way it's set up now. You only hit ninety two home runs in your career had over tweet. Thousand hits batting average over three hundred. When you see all the home runs, do you like that style or not? Not Really Rob you know it's a different game today, You know they're they're trying to turn. You know decent hitters into homerun hitters and You know there's Sir that can hit the ball out of the Ballpark, certainly hitters. You have to try and stay within yourself. And understand what you can do and they're at the plate. Now if you start starting uppercut, the ball and So he had miss or proper ball up. That's telling me that You can't so stay within yourself. Do what you're. Capable of doing? His name is Rod Kuru. His new book is called one tough out fighting off life curve balls. It was honor and a privilege to have you on the podcast. Thank you. Thank you so much rob. It's time for the pocket protector central the analytic numbers. You need to know well maybe anthony. masterson is his name. BS analytics is game. What do you got for me Anthony? Ross one evaluating pitcher performance in the age of analytics, Stat communities have tried to pinpoint all things. A pitcher can actually control namely strikeouts, walks homers and hit batters and spit out a metric works on the same plane as era now are baseball perspective through their hat into the fray, a few years back with deserved run average without getting too much into the minutia of linear weights, Dra does take every batted ball event and assign league average. Wait for that particular play once you have your base then you work on context now. Everything is taken into account for this metric from league time of. Of Game Temperature Stadium Team Defense, even the quality of the opposing better Dra just pictures, not necessarily on the outcome of play, but on the run expectancy of each play. I know it's a lot sluts, describing the tireless work that goes into a metric white. This could take days, but in one minute I can simply say the nationals. Stephen Strasburg led all of baseball last season with a two point one D. R. A. Even though, because a distant fifth in the CY. Young voting strategy maybe was more dominant than we actually thought Anthony I'M GONNA buy that he was more. He was a staunch. Anthony masterson. Knowledge, That ball. Was a big week in the big leagues. For. Is it fair and now? Shadow league DOT COM and it'll be insider shark gamble. I- Jr. the owners have spoken. They want the players to take a bigger reduction then originally thought if we're going to have baseball. Is that thou- offaire. How that is, a foul ball sounds like chaos in motion to me, rob, it's all backwards. The owners want to season so he can stop losing money and start making yourself. The players want to get paid to. A bit more cautious about Kobe concerns. Coming in that they have to take a significant pay cut doesn't help. The chances of this condense abbreviated eighty two game season. Even happening I'm looking at these salaries. They fall miserably under the pro rated race. The proposed salary cut is even worse, so players make five hundred sixty three ks last they'll be making about two hundred and sixty two case players making thirty five million dollar range, which only two they'll be making seven point eight, four million under this proposed. Change so the. A is not going to go for it. deal looks like it's back to the drawing board if they expect players to take difficult of a cry. I hear you. Something's gotTa. Give and we need baseball so hopefully they can come together. It's time for trash. Talk Twitter! Your chance to trash. Anyone or anything in major league baseball. The winning tweet. Come from at Rob Oak. He tweets. What's up with the Oakland A.'s refusing to pay their minor leaguers. They only make four hundred dollars a week. God forbid the as ownership dips into the two billion dollar treasure chest to help the guys at the bottom. Shaking my head. If. You want a chance to win. A New Era snapback hit us up all my twitter at rob. Parker F s one trash, anyone or anything in the world of Major League Baseball, and you could be a winner. When rob was the newspaper columnist, he lived by this motto. If I'm writing I'm rippin. Let's bring in a writer of broadcaster older new. All right. Let's welcome to the podcast Buddy Mike Code right? Who is the host of the pre and post game show for the cubs on the Marquee Sports Network? What's up? Call how you doing. You rough man doing good. Please tell me about this new network I'm excited to cubs put together their own television network to broadcast the game. You're part of the broadcast. And No, you can't wait to get started. Absolutely, you know we've been doing shows at home. Just like everybody else right now. We've been doing a show called Cup three sixty. You know we have a rotating panel of guests. A lot of people stop by. You know we've had George. Will from the Washington Post Michael Will von Jay don day host of players Dave Ross on. We just had Mike Napoli on yesterday, so we're trying to stay busy during these ever changing times and you know that's that's one of the. That's one of the best. Things that when we look at how everything's been done unfolded so far you know the chance for us to be able to go out there and speaking. May Have a different opinion on the same thing, each and every single day, and it's it's it's. It's nice to see how we creatively package that and you know how things have unfolded network, but I I just can't wait to get back to doing pre and post game shows like I'm sure you can't wait to get back to watch them regularly fashioned baseball the way it was intended to during the summer. In the second thing you know the dog days of summer and hopefully we'll see baseball baxter later up. No doubt about it. Tell me about the new skipper. There David Ross the former. Catcher who has no managerial experience, but we've seen that done before and. He replace of course Joe Madden. Tell me about him and What do we expect to see from the cubs? I expect to see a lot of success early. No David Roth is being you know your number one with no managerial experience it. It's GonNa be a little bit different than what he should be used to any other season where you know, he'd have to navigate a one hundred sixty two games scheduling from all. Accounts? It looks as if it's going to be an eighty two game season. You know if and when things finally do return, so you have to maneuver his way through a whole different way. It's GonNa be a different season. There's really. Not GonNa be, you're the ability to. To mess up off the top, you know that's you know for lack of a better term, but he's not going to have that cushion that you know. Usually I. Your manager would have you know the first half you're. There might be some hiccups here or there, but this is going to be a sprint to the finish. I mean this is GonNa. Be The second half for the whole season. I mean there's really going to be you know no break no respite so if the cops get off to a good start, which I really do, believe that they will i. I, think you know things are gonNA. Fall right in place for David. Ross I mean. I mean we all know man everyone that knows baseball and everyone that's been around the game, and if you've been able to sit and watch, we know catchers usually make the best dippers. I think for David Ross. No one a whole handful of guys on the team, and having played with them, and won the world series with these guys I think it's GonNa. Make it that much easier for him to make that transition yeah. I spoke with Anthony Rizzo Kris Bryant and Jason Heyward. Down Spring Training in Arizona, and they said it's not the same David Ross. He doesn't try to be the same David Ross. Who hit a home run in game, seven of of the world series in two thousand and sixteen. He's David Ross the manager so I think as different as he is I think he's also going to be the same what you're going to lend credibility this year. The cubs when I look at the roster haven't changed that much. What will what are the biggest additions to this team? You know as far as additions I I think it's. It's. It's the fact that they haven't made too many move. You just said when it comes to big addition, I think the biggest difference is GonNa be off the top of the line with them going on Kris, Bryant, Anthony, Rizzo, one to and then hobby buyers, potentially kosh warmer after that. Pick your poison, so you know for them to switch things up and go with their two best hitters really out of the gate. I think that's an unorthodox approach, but I don't see why it hasn't been used before. It's almost like back in the day. When we saw Tony Larussa hit the pitcher ace, so that extra leadoff man, and then you could just almost pile on sooner rather than later so I. Think it's it's the the amount of firepower that this cubs team can have because like you said a lot of familiar faces in the lineup, and you know from familiarity breeds, confidence and traffic can lend. Different wins and may maybe we'll see that. Hopefully we will in a shortened season. It's going to be a race to finish this when you look at the rotation. Do you like it? Darvish, Hendrix lesser. Your top three in Catania is our number four. Are you happy with that rotation? I don't mind that at all I. Mean they get out and that's that's what they are designed to do and like. I said with that with that lineup off. I mean they they could be in a lot of battles with with with other tabloid. Coming in that fits lot I mean. There could be a lot of insight what we see you know cubs pitcher. You know bottom of the second inning. Or whatever ending wherever wherever they're. By a bottom of the first the top of the I. It could it could be a cubs lead boom, just like that with on the road whether they're at home, I mean they they a jump out. Real quick and find themselves in a comfortable position, but. I feel like getting out. The best thing, but that they are getting a little bit older, so the sooner they get off to a better start with the offense helping them keep pace i. think things will be just fine and the slide right writing the place. His name is Cole Right. He is the pre and post game. Host of cubs baseball on the MARQUEES sports network cold. Thanks for the knowledge appreciate you. My pleasure. Now it's time for diamond dust with wish. TV's Phil Sanchez. Cape Blame Baseball in college now here his MLB knowledge. I? Rob So I was recently asked if you could sit on the bench for an hour and talk with one baseball player, who would it be? While the list really long for me, but at the top the late. Great Roberto Clemente now committee play eighteen seasons with the Pittsburgh pirates. He was sixteen time all-star nationally MVP led the League in hitting four times, and won twelve consecutive gold gloves commend. They died in nineteen, seventy, two at the age of thirty eight six months later he became the first Latin American ballplayer, being shrine into the baseball hall of fame. But as good as Clemente was on the field, it's what he did off the field. It makes him stand out from the rest. Clemente was known for its fundraising and humanitarian work. He was well known for hosting free baseball clinics for underprivileged youth and delivered significant financial aid to his native. Puerto Rico. His untimely death was the result of a plane crash on that plane. The plies for earthquake victims in Nicaragua and every year. Year Major League Baseball gives out an award to the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship and community involvement, the name of that trophy, and rightly so named the Roberto Clemente War, having said all of that the only player I would rather talk to for an hour on a bench would be Jackie. Robinson and I. Think Roberto Clemente would agree number twenty one in that Pittsburgh. Jersey it done get better than that. Bring in that closer Guo. Here's why MLB is better than the NFL or NBA and it isn't even close. Here's the reason major. League baseball is better than the NBA and NFL. It's the passion by fans. This FAN MORE FAG NO! Police Dick Allen belongs in the hall of Fame Hey. Mark Make your case I'll go with one big statistic with his career. opie plus it's one fifty six tied for twenty first time in baseball history and there's players. In there. Babe Ruth Ted Williams Berry Bombs Lou Garrick Mickey. Male people in front of them, and the only players behind him who played in his era in the top fifty or Willie mccovey, Willie stargell and Frank Robinson, and then the rest are nowhere to be found. So that's wants to right there, and then you go, you always say. How does one do against their peers? How does one do against their peers well yet? Eleven year peak from nineteen, sixty, four to nineteen, seventy four where his opie s plus was one. Sixty five wants sixty five. That was the best Benoa baseball ahead of thirteen future hall of famers. Like maize players like Clementi errand. Johnny Bench. Players of that ilk, you know better than anybody. He's not in because he has a bad rap. People think that he is a malcontent and he's got that bad boy image. If it's a stigma that has wrongfully placed on them, it's not it's not the truth. It's all rumors. It's all started by that bill. James he started all. He called him a bed teammate. Bad person at cancer in it's called out and conscious team more to lose than they did the win, and you ask all of his teammates. I have testimonial from everybody Willie mays Hank our Mike Schmidt all saying that that is wrong, and they all say that Dick. Gown belongs in the hall of fame. Mark I love Your Passion for Dick Allen. We'll see if he makes it into the hall of fame. In the of New York TV legend the lay Bill Jorgensen thanking you for your time this time until next time Rob Parker out. This could be an. Park next week same time same. uh-huh!

It's getting robbed. LEADOFF, it's getting robbed and keep them up. Rob's hot take on the three biggest stories in major league baseball. Number one baseball fans. Relax I get it the initial talk between the owners and the players. Union doesn't sound good. People are in a panic. Oh my God or they're not GonNa play baseball and twenty twenty. Will it be eighteen months before we see baseball again? I'm just not in that camp. I understand the players, not wanting to give up a lot of stuff that they've had to sacrifice for in order to get, and I also understand the owners. The give out money that you don't have. This is going to be a very different baseball season. When you talk about no fans, no concessions no parking, no ballpark merchandise. That's a lot of money. Owners say it's forty percent of what they bring in I. Get to TV. Money is big and baseball lives off of it, but it's gotta be compromise. We gotTa Have Baseball I. DO BELIEVE The two sides will figure this out work it out and players have a vested interest because if this thing goes. Goes Awry. It'll be hard for next year that free agents guys don't have contracts will feel good about Oh be a good situation so I think this thing will get worked out. Both sides need to get this done and best of all and most of all America needs baseball. During this time, July, four star would be awesome number two. I'm sorry. I'm not on board with the Universal de age I understand. They want to implement it just for this. Season because of the pandemic, and what's going to be involved in pitchers and trying to protect pitchers? I hope this isn't a precursor to a Universal D. H.. The DA was introduced in the American League in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three. We're RAHM. Bloomberg stepped to the plate for the New York Yankees. He was the first D. H. Ever. And the American League. Is it the National League is used it when they've played in American, League ballparks, people always talk about it adds offense. It takes away strategy though. In the managers, using pitchers pinch hitting doing other things I love the National League brand of baseball I just do, and this whole idea of saving pitchers from getting hurt I just don't remember too many pitchers ever getting hurt by batting or running the bases or whatever it just doesn't happen that often I think they understand their pitchers. And they run with caution and they hit with caution sold. I'll accepted this year I'm just hoping when the CBA as open, and they're talking about twenty twenty one, and and beyond that the DA is not a part of baseball in the National League number three. I'm sorry. I just don't get it time and time these stories keep coming out about Derek. jeeter being overrated I i. just you could go ahead and concoct all your numbers and your pencil protectors and try to talk about. where he fits in when it comes to war, and all these other things until try to convince people. That Derek jeter was overrated i. just there's a there's also an eye test. I I was in New York covering Derek Jeeter when he broke in with the enke's. And I. Just I mean I don't know what else guy has to do. Is a lifetime three hundred batting average way over the six most hits in the major leagues somewhere in that area. you know. Also won five world series may big signature plays the flip in Clinton. The the extra inning home run on. in the playoffs against the Orioles, I could just go on and on and on I don't know what Derek. jeeter needed to do to the. He needed to get to every ground ball to satisfy some people. I know people want to say. It was only because him playing in New York. And that's why Derek Jeeter was a hell of a ball player, a hall of Famer. Who the writers. All but one voted for him on his first ballot to the hall of Fame I. think that rest my case, the people who cover the game, the most NFC. Agree! He's a hall of Famer and it's not even debatable.

From League time of Game Temperature Stadium Team Defense, even the quality of the opposing better dra judges, pitchers not necessarily on the outcome bubble play, but on the run expectancy of each play I know it's a lot sluts. Describing tireless work was metric. This could take days, but in one minute I can simply say the nationals Stephen Strasburg led all of baseball last piece with a two point. One Three D. R. A. Even though, because a distant in the CY, young voting strategy maybe was more dominant than we actually thought Anthony I'm to buy that. He was more dominant. He was a staunch. Anthony Masterson thanks for the knowledge. That? Was a big week in the big leagues. For. Is it fair and now the? Shadow league DOT COM and it'll be insider. Jr Gamba. The owners have spoken. They want the players to take a bigger reduction than originally thought. If we're GONNA have baseball, is that thou- or fair? That's how that is a foul balls. It sounds like chaos in motion to me. Roberts backwards. The owners want to season, so they can stop losing money and start making some the players WanNa get paid to, but it seems like that bit more cautions about these Cova concerns. Telling them that they have to take difficult pay-cut doesn't help. The chances of this condense abbreviated eighty two game season. Even happening. I'm looking at these salaries. They fall miserably under the pro rated rate. The proposed salary cut is even worse, so if players make five hundred sixty three. Or last they'll be making about two hundred and sixty cucumbers. Players who making a thirty five million dollar range? It's only two. They'll be making seven point eight, four million under this proposed. Change so the. Is Not. Going to go for it, This deal looks like it's back to the drawing board if they expect play. Of I hear you, something's gotTa, give and we need baseball so hopefully they can come together. It's time for trash. Talk Twitter! Your chance to trash, anyone or anything in major league baseball. The winning tweet come from at Rob Oak. He tweets. What's with the Oakland A.'s refusing to pay their minor leaguers? They only make four hundred dollars a week. God forbid the as ownership tips into the two billion dollar treasure chest to help two guys at the bottom. Shaking my head? If? You want a chance to win. A New Era snapback hit us up all my twitter at rob, Parker F s one trash, anyone or anything in the world of Major League Baseball and you could be a winner. When rob was the newspaper columnist, he lived by this motto. If I'm writing, I'm rippin. Let's bring in a writer broadcaster older new. Let's welcome to the PODCAST. Buddy of my coal right? Who is the host of the pre and post game show for the cubs on the Marquee Sports Network? What's up? Call how you doing actual man how you doing rough mad. Do Good. Please tell me about this new network. I'm excited to cubs put together their own television network to broadcast the game. You're part of the broadcast. And No, you can't wait to get started. Absolutely you know we've been doing shows at home. Just like everybody else right now we've been doing this show called three sixty. You know we have a rotating panel gas. You know a lot of different people stopped by. You know we've had they. Don't George Wail from the The Washington Post Michael von Jay Don Day. You know a whole host of players that David Ross. We just had Mike Napoli on yesterday, so we're trying to stay busy during these ever changing times and that's that's one of the. That's one of the best. Things that I look at how everything's been been done unfolded so far the chance for us to be able to go out there and speak. May Have a different opinion on the same thing, each and every single day, and it's it's it's. It's nice to see how we creatively package that and you know how things have unfolded at the network but I I just can't wait to get back to doing pre and post game shows like I'm sure you can't wait to get back to watch and regular old-fashioned baseball the way it was intended to during the summer in thing you, the dog days of summer and hopefully we'll see baseball baxter than later up. No doubt about it. Tell me about the new skipper. There David Ross the former. Catcher, who has no managerial experience, but we've seen that done before and. He replace of course Joe Madden. Tell me about him. And what do we expect to see from the cubs? I expect to see a lot of success early I know for David Roth is being your number one with no managerial experience, and it's GonNa be a little bit different than what he should be used to. In any other season where you know, he'd have to navigate hundred sixty two games schedule and from all. Accounts it looks as if it's GONNA. Be An two game season, if and when things finally do return, so you're GonNa have to maneuver his way through a whole different way. It's GONNA be different season. That really good. They're not GONNA be. The ability to to your this mess up off off the top. You know that's you know for lack of a better term, but he's not going to have that cushion that usually a first year manager would have you know the first half. There might be some hiccups here there, but this is going to be a sprint finish. I mean this is GonNa be the second half for the whole season. I mean there's really GonNa be you know break no respite, so you know if the comes off to a good start, which I really do believe that they will I think. Think, you know things are GONNA to fall. Right in into place for David Ross I mean I mean we all know man everyone that knows baseball and everyone that's been around the game, and if you've been able to sit and watch, and we know that catchers usually make the best skippers and I think for David Ross, no one a whole handful of guys on the team having played with them and one world series with these guys I think it's GonNa make it that much easier for him to make. That transition I spoke with Anthony Rizzo Chris, Bryan and Jason Heyward. Down in Spring Training Arizona, and and they said it's not the same. David Ross is the manager now. He doesn't try to be the same David Ross who hit a home run in game, seven of the world series, in two thousand and sixteen David Ross the manager, so I think as different as he is I mean he's also going to be the same which is going to lend his credibility this year. The cubs when I look at the roster haven't changed that much. What are the biggest additions to this team? As far as additions, I I think it's. It's it's the fact that they haven't made too many moves like you just said when it comes to big additions. I think the biggest difference is GonNa be off the top of the lineup. Kris Bryant Anthony Rizzo one two, and then hobby buyers potentially couch warmer after that. Pick your poison so. For them to switch things up and go with their two best hitters really out of the gate. I think that's A. It's an unorthodox approach but I. don't see why it hasn't been used before. It's almost like back in the day when we saw Tony Larussa, hit the pitcher ace, so that extra leadoff man, and then you can just almost pile on sooner rather than later so I. Think it's. It's the the the amount of firepower. This cubs team can have because like you said A. A lot of familiar faces in the lineup and familiarity breeds, confidence and confidence can lend to a lot of different wins, and maybe we'll see that hopefully we will like I said in a shortened season going be a race to the finish with when you look at the rotation. Do you like it Darvish Hendrix, lesser, your top doing Katana. Is Number Four. Are you happy with that rotation? I don't mind that at all. I mean they get outs and that's that's what pages are designed to do, and like I said with that with that line of off the top I mean they could be in a lot of battles deal, and with with other tabloid coming in that fit slot, there could be a lot of instances where we see cubs pitcher. You know bottom of the second inning. Ah, you know, or or you know whatever any wherever wherever they're at. The bottom of the the first guy, I it it could, it could be a cubs lead boom, just like that with on the road whether they're at home. I mean they jump out real quick and find themselves in a comfortable position, but. I feel like getting out. The best thing that they are getting a little bit older, so the sooner they get off to a better start with the offense helping them keep pace I think things will be just fine writing the place.

Now it's time for some diamond dust with wish. TV's Phil Sanchez. Baseball in college now here his LV knowledge. I rob so I was recently asked if you could sit on a bench for an hour and talk with one baseball player, who would it be? While the list really long for me, but at the top the late great, Roberto Clemente now Clemente play eighteen seasons with the Pittsburgh pirates. He was a sixteen time all-star national. League MVP led the League in hitting four times and won twelve consecutive gold gloves. Clemente died in nineteen, seventy, two at the age of thirty eight six months later, he became the first. Latin American ballplayer. It'd be enshrined into the baseball team. But as good as clemente was on the field. Off the field that makes him stand out from the rest. Clementi was known for its fundraising and humanitarian work. He was well known for hosting free baseball clinics for underprivileged youth and delivered significant financial aid to his native Puerto. Rico is untimely. Death was the result of a plane crash on that plane. The plies for earthquake victims in Nicaragua and every year major. League, Baseball gives out in award. Award to the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship and community involvement, the name of that trophy, and rightly so named the Roberto Clemente Award having said all of that the only player I would rather talk to for an hour on a bench would be Jackie. Robinson, and I think we're BERTA. Clemente would agree number twenty one in Pittsburgh Jersey it done get better than that. Now bring in the closer war. Here's why MLB is better than the NFL or And it isn't even close. Here's the reason, Major League Baseball is better than the NBA and NFL. It's the passion by fans this fan more cau- fag no. Police Dick Allen belongs in the hall of Fame Hey. Mark Make your case. With one big statistic, which is career opiates plus it's one fifty six tied for twenty first off time in baseball history and there's players. In there. Babe Ruth Ted.

You always say how do against their peers. How does one do against their peers well yet? Eleven year peak from nineteen, sixty, four to nineteen, seventy four. Where his opiates plus was one. Sixty five wants sixty five. That was the best been all baseball ahead of thirteen future hall of famers played like mazed. Players like Clementi errand. Johnny Bench players of that ilk. Better than anybody he's not in because he has a bad rot. People think that he is a malcontent and he's got that bad boy image. If it's a stigma that has wrongfully placed on them, it's not it's not the truth. It's all rumors. It's all start by that Bill James. He started all Economou called him Abed. Teammate bed, person, a cancer in its clubhouse, and causes team more to lose than he did the win. And you ask all of his teammates testimony from everybody Willie mays Hank Garin Mike Schmidt all saying that that is wrong, and they all say the Dick Gown belongs in the hall of fame.
