"Shell, Pennzoil performance line you know we can't we can't just live in. A moment, Todd we can't just look at the guys who. Are going into Morrow of course now we. Have to look ahead to next. Year but next year is a really interesting class you've got guys like Barry Bonds you've. Got guys like Roger, Clemens were on the ballot and Curt Schilling. On the ballot for. The sixth time you've got Edgar Martinez in his tenth year tenth and final year. Then you, also, look, at some, of, the. First year ballots who you got there Mariano Rivera ROY halladay Andy? Pettitte, Todd Helton. So, let's just start with the easy one who is the guaranteed Yup there. In well everybody would know that Mariano Rivera is In Chipper, Jones, got ninety seven, percent of. The votes four hundred ten votes out of the possible four hundred? Twenty. Two I. Think, Mariana will be even higher than that I think he's the like unanimous everyone's got him in I mean how could you not who's the guy that's gonna say look at Mariana I, just don't see, it come, on because I had this conversation earlier, this year about the NASCAR hall of fame and Jeff Gordon made it into the NASCAR hall of fame but there were I think three people who didn't vote for him, like how do you not. Result for a guy like Jeff, Gordon into the NASCAR hall of fame and the, argument. By the people who didn't vote for him was well. He didn't need my, vote he was going. To get in. And I think that's what, really, fall into that too I for, one think that he should obviously be faced and so I. Mean I two thousand three I'm with Boston we're in. New York game seven and he comes in the, game and he's? Those that nasty cutter at ninety six ninety seven I was a left handed hitter in on your hands so I thought I faced him enough to, go you, know what I'm gonna back off the plate because now he can't get that cutter in on. My hands. And he tells a back door on the, other side a cutter there was a ball that came across the back. Side of. The for strike once and. Now all right I got back and back. Into the box and. Then he just buried by ended up getting JR Jammed. Hit a ball story on a second base so, I just faced? Him he was one of the newest common is what I'm saying you knew a lot of times you have to have an educated guess like I, mentioned earlier, on different pitchers you knew what was coming and you still couldn't hit it what do you. Think about. ROY halladay I think my gut says he, makes it in on your one what do you think Roy That hits a little too. Close I'm a pilot as well inside such a devastating, story but sixteen, years two hundred wins He played the big leagues from the time he was twenty one to thirty six two thousand three hundred twenty two games so I think he's in. Another guy, that I face that he did have a multitude of pitches that you. Just you just couldn't square anything up I mean he's so big on the, mound to and his his. His is delivering so funky that was hard to pick up the, ball and, so ROY holiday I? Think, certainly deserves it a lot of these. I I you guys ought to get in I think what do. You think well, I, think I think he, gets in I think the two interesting ones are Todd Helton on an offline we were? Saying no he he gets in but I don't. Think he gets in your, one because. Of where did. He play right he he played primarily in Colorado, Rockies all time leader in games hates home runs RBI he gets in I just don't think he. Gets in your one but. The, really interesting one. To me and this goes back to our, steroid conversation is Andy, Pettitte here's a guy who admitted Yup I did it I did. It once in work for me didn't do it again, but he admitted, to doing it And, you've got guys like, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens who are going. To be on the ballot for the, seventh time next year never failed a. Test I thank you made a great point because it opens up the can of worms for everybody else and where do you draw the line it's. The floodgates, so if you if you let him in if you let a guy. Who's like yeah I did you let him in and how can you not, are you glad two of. The greatest players of all time who've never admitted to anything and, have never, tested for it how? Do, you and that's why I think the. Older voters will take a stand and they know that so but. Once the younger, voters, get and their become, the majority I think Andy Pettitte gets in the interesting thing for me and he's not? A first year ballot was Edgar Martinez d. h.. Two hundred ninety seven votes, you need. Three hundred and. Seventeen to get in he had two hundred ninety, seven this year so I think Admiral Edgar Martinez gets in next year as well and it's his. Last chance it's his tenth. Year, on the ballot. It's the baseball hall of fame special on, ESPN radio and the, ESPN app Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker Anyone else that you've got. Your eye on next year Omar Vizquel the on the ballot for the second, year whilst, we have Other than the guys Manny Ramirez on for the, third time I don't know how. You can make an outlook Barry Bonds with the greatest center ever was and never will be but Manny Ramirez could swing it and you know the greatest thing, about Manny played with them in Boston one year and. People with his personality in the. Thing that people saw on, the outside, they didn't realize. How hard of a, worker he was we would show up at camp so, this is spring training you know even day one I mean we had I, think we'd, be on the field at nine o'clock but that typically man as we drive up. At seven thirty eight get dressed you know, have some time to get out there when I would drive up at seven. AM he was already dressed, in the cage hitting and that was every day of spring training before the, two thousand three season so Manny was a worker and I'm telling you what as everybody does now he, could flat out hit. And I think I, just don't see any way. He he will be held out maybe not next year but, he'll be in so I. Think I my gut says he's in I do not? Have a vote in case anyone was wondering I don't have a vote Don't have a say, but I say he gets in he turned into Maronite, Anthony resident when the cops visit the cardinals again it didn't go so well, today they're, presented by indeed coverage of Sunday night baseball brigades seven PM eastern on ESPN radio. ESPN radio dot com and the ESPN app, and then at eight PM on ESPN and the watch ESPN app that would. Be on t the Todd, Walker Nicole Briscoe with you for the baseball hall of fame says special six will be enshrined tomorrow afternoon in Cooperstown one thirty eastern he's got Latimer Guerrero Chipper Jones Trevor Hoffman Jack, Morris Jim Thome me. Alan Trammell you played, against some of these guys. You played with some of these guys before we wrap things. Up what's your favorite memory Well I. Played with, Trevor so I think I think. For me. Just being, behind a. Guy like that in the ninth or standing out on the field and the hell's bells starts planning comes walking alligator Tim curtains say he. Had a just a a great concept of pitching which means it though that first pitch change up to that hitters also, popped up because he's listening to hell's bells as well. And the, guy just playing behind him and just, watching them and, then just talking. To him about baseball I think I think that's, great but watching Vlad hit watching. Chip reply all those years and. Of course Jim told me the. Great, Jim tell me I was just blessed to be on the field with those. Guys and so it was fun I mean I, can't pick one. Out there all great. I mean you can you can go through the last Vlad the best bad ball hitter ever eat swing at, a pitch that was bouncing the dirt Chipper Jones what did, what Tim Kirsten say when he joined us on the shell Pennzoil. Performance line that he was the. Fourth best, third baseman, of all time to switch. Hitting ability there Trevor Hoffman you just. Talked about him Jack Morris pitched ten innings all ten innings and. What is arguably the Greatest baseball game of all time game seven of the. Greatest World, Series of all time the nineteen Ninety-one, series I think, it's probably Indians. And cubs but that's completely Tell me Kenny Lofton was on, with us and he, was like this is a guy you've. Said tied he was the nicest guy in, the game but he didn't know. Was power and then you've got Alan Trammell who played twenty seasons in major. League baseball he played all twenty of those seasons with, one team the Detroit Tigers, Todd Walker thank you. Very much it. Was, fun. Oh, absolutely Nicole. Enjoyed it coming, up next it's Dickerson and hood coming..

"Live, in the moment Todd we can't just look at the guys who. Are going into. Morrow of course not we have to look, ahead to next year but next year is. A really interesting class you've got. Guys like Barry Bonds you've got guys like Roger Clemens were on the ballot and Curt. Schilling on the ballot, for the sixth time you've got a girl Martinez, in his tenth year. Tenth and final year but then you also look at some of. The first year ballots? Will you, got, there, Mario Rivera, ROY, halladay. Andy Pettitte Todd Helton so let's just start with the easy one who is the? Guaranteed, yet they're in well everybody would know that, Mariano Rivera, is in I mean Chipper Jones. Got ninety Seven percent of the votes four hundred ten votes out of? The, possible four hundred twenty two I think Mariano, will be, even higher than that You. Know it's like unanimous everyone's got him in I mean how could you not who's the guy that's going to say you know look at Mariana I just don't see it come, on because I, had this, conversation earlier this year about the NASCAR, hall, of fame and Jeff Gordon made it into the NASCAR hall of fame but there were I think three people who didn't vote for him like how? Do, you not out for a. Guy like Jeff Gordon into the, NASCAR hall of fame and the argument by people didn't, vote. For him wise well he didn't need my vote he was. Going to get, in and I think that's what really. Fall into with that too, I, for one think that he should obviously be faced him so I mean I two thousand three. On with Boston we're in New York game seven and. He comes in the game and he's does that, nasty cutter at? Ninety six ninety seven I was a left handed hitter in on your hands so I thought I'd faced him enough to go you know what I'm, gonna back off the plate because now he can't get that cutter in on my hands and he. Tells a. Back door. On the other side a cut there was a ball that came across. The back side of the plate for strike once, so now all right I got back in back into the box. And then he just buried I ended up getting Jammed hit a story on at second base so, he just faced? Him he was one of the newest common is what I'm saying you knew a lot of times you have to have an educated guess like I, mentioned earlier on different pitchers you knew what was coming and you still couldn't hit it what do. You think. About ROY. Halladay I think my gut says he makes it in on your one. What do you think Roy That hits a little too close. Out I'm a pilot as well and saw such a devastating, story but sixteen, years two hundred wins He played the big leagues from the time he's twenty one to thirty six two thousand three hundred twenty two games so I think. He's in, another guy that I face that he did have a multitude of pitches. That you just you just couldn't square anything up I, mean he's? So big on the, mound to and his his his his delivery so funky that was hard to pick up, the ball, you know and so? ROY, holiday I think certainly deserves a lot of these I I year guys ought to get in I think, what do you, think, well I think he, gets in the two interesting ones for me are are Todd Helton on and off Lyon? We were saying no he he gets in but. I don't think he gets in your. One because of. Where did he play right he he played primarily, in Colorado Rockies all time leader in, games hits home runs RBI he gets in I just. Don't think he gets in. Your, one but the. Really interesting one to. Mean this goes back, to our steroid conversation, is Andy Pettitte here's a guy who admitted Yup I did it I. Did it once didn't work for me didn't do it again, but he admitted, to doing it And you've got guys like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens who are going to, be on the, ballot, for the seventh time, next year never fail the test thank you made a great point because it opens up? The can of worms for everybody else and where. Do you draw the line it's the. Floodgates so if. If you let him in if you let a, guy who's like yeah I did you, let him in and how can you not argue book. Like two of the greatest. Players, of all time. Who've never admitted to. Anything and have never, tested for it how, do you not let him in And, that's why I think the older voters, will, take a stand and they know that so but once the younger voters? Get in there become the majority I think Andy Pettitte gets in the interesting thing for me and he's not. A first year ballot was Edgar Martinez Two hundred ninety seven votes you need three hundred seventeen, to get in he, had two hundred ninety seven this year so I think. Murray Edgar Martinez gets in next year as well and, it's his last chance it's his tenth year on the ballot it's the baseball hall of fame special on ESPN radio and the ESPN app Nicole Briscoe Todd. Walker anyone else that you've got your eye on next year Omar Vizquel be on the ballot for the second year Whilst could we have Other than the guys Ramirez on, for the third time I don't know how you can make an outlook Barry Bonds, with the greatest center whatever was, and never will be but Manny. Ramirez could swing it and you know the, greatest thing about manning I play with him in Boston one year and people with his personality and the thing that people, saw on the outside they didn't realize how hard of. A worker he was we would. Show up at camp so, this is, spring training you. Know even day one, I mean we had I think we'd be on the, field at nine o'clock but what that typically man as we drive up at seven, thirty eight, get dressed you know have some time to get out when I would drive. Up at seven AM he was already dressed, in the cage hitting and that was every day of spring training before the. Two thousand three season so, Manny was a worker and I'm telling you what as everybody does now he, could flat out hit and I think I just don't see any way he he will be held out, maybe not next year. But he'll be in, so I think I my. Gut says he's in I do not have a vote in. Case anyone with wondering I, don't have a vote, don't have his, say but I say He gets in hey tune in tomorrow night Anthony razor when the cops visit.

"Conversation at storytime with mom. Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker is here to Tim I wanted to ask you we haven't talked a, lot about at all about Alan? Trammell and I'm not calling you old but what do you. Remember watching or of course you probably want kindergarten or something like that what? Were, you what you remember about Alan Trammell following you're watching him play well you know this time they had a staying back in the American League with Trammell played. That any shortstop that had, great carry on his ball on his throw it was called Alan Trammell Kerry meaning did matter where he threw from you, watch and it wasn't like wasn't. Like Sean Dunston thrown over the, first but the ball always got there could never lost its line and it always its first baseman in the little of the best and that was called alan trammell carry he was so reliable as a shortstop he was so much better hitter than people gave him credit for i believe it was the best player on a championship team in nineteen eighty four and when you look at the way the game was supposed to be played on every level every day there's a picture of alan trammell right they're not like this matters but i'm told that he used to play pick up basketball while he was playing in the big leagues of the off season guardsman end line to end line in a pickup ask a ball game 'cause that's how alan trammell attack everything he did athletically especially baseball and i just love the fact that he spent twenty years in major league baseball and all twenty years where with the same team as in the detroit tigers and it's just it's just not the way the game is today So that's something special there are two, modern era selections to. Be enshrined tomorrow the other is Jack. Morrison and Morris, page arguably, the greatest game in baseball history we're talking about game seven of the nineteen Ninety-one World Series between the twins and the Braves he pitched seven are you pitched ten innings how much of that in that game defines his legacy I think that personifies who he was and is and I wrote the side bar that. Night for Sports Illustrated might sidebar was on Jack force remember time Kelly the twins manager came to take him out in the tenth inning in Jack Moore is not coming out of the gate and Randy Bush of the twins told. Me after the game Jack has really tried to take Jack out, of the game time to try to take, him out it would have, been the first. Time in history that. A manager was killed about Jack would have killed John. Kelly because he is not coming out of. That game in the tenth inning of. Scoreless tie those pictures don't exist anymore and I know the numbers don't always add up for. Jack Morris ICRAF. The hall of fame I? Get it but fourteen opening day starts there was never The question is starting game, one or game seven other, play on series It was That game seven. In ninety one kind of personified exactly who. He was he was not coming out of. That game That's so interesting well you know as you know I was on. The field with Grady little and Pedro Martinez in a similar situation and it didn't. Work out the same for, us but I played. With Trevor Hoffman in San Diego and we've talked about his. Fastball we talked about his auspey especially at. Change up what made him special to you Well his competitive nature was like few others as we know as you know tie he was a shortstop is a minor league, he wasn't a very, good hitter he could play defense. And he really throw teammate told the DP you know I don't think you're ever going to hit you should be Keller pitcher and a year later he was a pitcher and a couple of years later he's pitching in the big leagues when he. Finished with six hundred one sage that change it was, unbelievably good especially since at least early crew so hard by the fact, that he could come. Out, of that, bullpen with hell's, bells screaming in the background like that come out so amped up and throw that I for a change out as opposed to throw. It as hard as he could I think really kind of sunup who Trevor Hoffman. Is was he understood the, competition of the game. About as well as anybody and Absolutely I had a? Flair, for the dramatic and being out in. Front given his, dad was singing, are, sure at Anaheim stadium Trevor survive a kidney. Ailment when he was young kid. He proposed to his wife on one knee at halftime of a. Buffalo Bills, game he's used to being in front he's. Not afraid of anything or anybody and that and, that tremendous change is another reason he's going to the hall of fame for a small public service announcement if you're thinking of proposing don't do, it in a public, place make it private and romantic. Back to baseball it's also incredibly difficult to make the hall of fame as a relief pitcher because Hoffman's only the sixth to do it I went out on a gigantic limb earlier and said number seven is gonna make it next year when Mariana. Rare makes them out for the first time I know, huge huge swing there but how to Hoffman and Rivera compared to each other Well if you look at. The regular season numbers they're pretty close I mean you, could Rivera's better than anyone it's not really close between the number two reliever of. All time but you look at, the regular season numbers in Trevor Hoffman is fairly comparable to Mariana nobody's Mario however what. Separates Mariana is postseason covers which are just ridiculous they're absolutely absurd he's. One of the great post-season, pitchers of all time and certainly greatest, postseasons believer of all time and is greatest. Author was that's what separates Mariano is what he did in October we set you up for this question in the last. Segment and we didn't get the answer to it so, I'm gonna ask it again now of all of the inductive is going in tomorrow Vladimir Guerrero Trevor. Hoffman Chipper Jones, Jack Morris Jim, Thome e Alan Trammell who was your favorite to watch Well I think it. Was Chipper, Jones, who we talked about earlier but, I've always admired the. Way that his. Professional career started he was on his high school graduation party weekend when his father called and said you better get home the Braves wanna come talk to you so of course he. Went straight home and the pre drafted meeting with the Braves took thirty minutes Chipper did not have an. Agent he took the first offer. That the graves gave to him which granted was a. Good offer but his dad took, him upstairs, and Chipper you can get. A lot more money than this Well I know, I. Can but I want to be the number one overall pick I wanted to play now and I'm gonna make so much. Money playing this game that I don't eat to get it all right away here and to me that was the consummate Chipper Jones betting on himself only that is hard as this game is, he was going to beat this game that's how confident he, was in his ability and boy did it ever show and. After that great rookie year he had he told me Cal Ripken gave him a, baseball cowards hero of. Chippers growing up in the baseball has. Said great rookie, year now comes the hard part in Chipper kept that ball on his desk and. Looked at it all the time. Knowing the adjustments have to come now and he made all of them storytime with Tim on. The shell Pennzoil performance like we made it. That entire conversation and we never touched and Vlad.

"Shell Pennzoil performance line to continue our conversation, at storytime with Tim I'm Nicole? Briscoe Todd Walker is here to Tim I wanted to ask. You we haven't? Talked a lot about at all about Alan Trammell, and I'm not calling you old but what do, you remember. Watching or of course you probably want kindergarten or something like that. What were you what were you. Remember about Alan Trammell following her watching him play Well you know this time they had a staying. Back in the American League with Trammell played that any shortstop that had great carry on his ball on, his throw it was called Alan Trammell, Kerry? Leading didn't matter where he, threw from you watch and it wasn't like, wasn't like Sean. Dunston, thrown over the first but ball always got there could never. Lost its line and it always its first baseman in the middle of the best and that, was called Alan Trammell. Carry he was so reliable as a shortstop he was so much better hitter than, people gave. Him, credit for I believe it was. The best player on a. Championship team in nineteen Eighty-four and when you look at the way the game was supposed to, be played on every level every? Day there's a picture of how in Trammell right they're not. Like this matters? But I'm told what he used to play pick, up basketball wow He was playing in. The big league the guardsman in line to end line in a pickup basketball game 'cause that's how Alan Trammell attacked everything he did athletically especially baseball, and I just love the fact that he spent twenty years in major league baseball I all twenty years where with the. Same team as in the Detroit Tigers. And it's just it's just not the. Way the game is today so that's something special there are two. Modern era selections to be enshrined tomorrow the other is Jack Morris and Morris. Page arguably the greatest game in baseball history we're talking about game seven of the nineteen Ninety-one World Series, between the twins and the Braves he, pitched? Seven are he pitched ten, innings how much of that in in that game defines his. Legacy I think, that personifies who he was and is and I quote the side bar that night. For Sports Illustrated might sidebar was on Jack Morris remember Tom Kelly the twins manager came to take him out in tenth inning in Jack Morris. Was not coming out. Of the gate and Randy Bush of the twins Toby. After the game Jack had really tried to. Take Jack out of the game time. And try to take him out it would have been the first time in history that a. Manager was killed. About Jack would have killed? Tom Kelly because he is not coming out of that game In the. Tenth inning of scoreless, ties those pitchers don't exist anymore and I know the numbers don't always add up for Jack Morris. ICRAF the hall of fame I get fourteen opening day starts there was never a question is starting game one or game seven they play on series it was off That game, seven in ninety one kind of personified exactly who he was he. Was not coming out. Of that game That's so interesting well you know as you know I was on. The field with Grady little and Pedro Martinez in a similar situation and it didn't. Work out the same for, us but I played. With Trevor Hoffman in San Diego and we've talked about his. Fastball we talked about his auspey especially at. Change up what made him special to you Well his competitive nature like few others as we know as you know Todd he was a, shortstop is the minor, leagues he wasn't a very. Good hitter he could. Play defense and. He, really throw, a key may, told the DP you're gonna hit you should become a pitcher and a year later he was a pitcher and a couple of years. Later he's pitching in the big leagues when he finished with six hundred one sage. That change it was unbelievably, good especially since at. Least fairly he throws so hard But the fact that. He could come, out of that bullpen, when hell's bells screaming in. The background like that They'd come out. And so am info that first pitch for change out as opposed to throw it as hard as he could I think. Really kind of sunup up Trevor Hoffman is and was he understood constitutional the game about as well as anybody and absolutely. I had a flair for the dramatic and being out in. Front given his dad was singing at Anaheim stadium Trevor survive a kidney ailment what. He was a young kid he. Proposed to his wife on one knee. At halftime of a Buffalo Bills game he's used to being in front he's not afraid of anything or anybody and then. In that tremendous change is, another reason he's going to the hall, of fame for a small public service. Announcement if you're thinking of proposing don't do it in a public place making private and romantic back to baseball it's also, incredibly difficult to make the hall of, fame as a relief pitcher because Hoffman's only this sixth to do it I went out on a gigantic limb Earlier, and said number seven is gonna make. It next year when Mariana Rivera makes them out for the first time I know huge huge swing there but how to, Hoffman and Rivera compared to each other Well if you look at the regular season numbers pretty. Close I, mean, you could Rivera's? Better than anyone, it's not really close. Between and the. Number two reliever of all time but you'd look the regular season numbers, and Trevor Hoffman is fairly comparable to Mariana nobody's Mario however what separates Mariana it's postseason covers which, are just ridiculous, they're absolutely absurd, he's one of the great post-season pitchers of all time And certainly greatest. Postseasons lever of all time and is greatest author was that's what separates. Mariano is what he did in October we set you up for this question in. The last, segment, and we didn't? Get the answer, to it so I'm. Gonna ask it. Again now of all of the inductees going in tomorrow Guerrero Trevor Hoffman Chipper Jones Jack. Morris Jim Tony, Allen Trammell who was your favorite to less well I think it was, Chipper Jones so. We talked about earlier but I've. Always admired ways that his professional career started he was on school graduation party weekend when his father. Called and said you better get home the. Braves wanna come talk to you so of course, he went straight, home, and the meet the, pre-draft meeting with the Braves took thirty minutes Chipper did. Not have an agent he took the first offer that the Braves gave to him which grants it was eight good offer but his dad took him upstairs and Chipper you can get a lot more money than. This and she said well I know I can but I want to be the number one overall pick. I want to play damn and I'm gonna make so much money playing this game That I don't, get it, all right, away here. And to me that was the? Continent, Chipper Jones betting on himself only. That is hard as this, game is he was gonna beat this game that's how. Confident he was in his ability and boy did it ever show and, after that great rookie. Year he had he told me they. Cal Ripken gave, him a baseball cowboy hero chippers going out in the baseball has said, great rookie year. Now comes the hard part Chipper. Kept that ball on his desk and looked at it all the time knowing the adjustments have to. Come now and EBay all of them storytime. With Tim on the shell Pennzoil performance like you, know we made, it, that entire conversation in, we never touched and Vlad but don't worry.

"Slot The baseball, hall of fame special here's more with a. Cold, Briscoe and Todd water Field that's it well young is back God Hit a six hundred told me becomes the Eight Major league baseball hit six hundred dollars Fred trial in baseball network. With that. Call six will be inducted excuse me we'll be enshrined into the hall of fame tomorrow afternoon in Cooperstown one thirty eastern Nicole Briscoe, Todd Walker with you, a couple names not on the list and this is where we opened the the can of worms Roger Clemens on the ballot for six years Barry Bonds on the ballot. Or six years to players or not perhaps yet in the hall of fame because of, the steroid Citreon and I go back I go back and forth on, this? Because it is the steroid era right and I decide how I feel, so because you played, in the, game you get to? Say your opinion I how do? You, how do you. Feel, about this. Well you heard. Kenny again we lost we lost money we lost all kind of other benefits and stuff from. Guys that did take those those deals and so all of, a sudden, up the middle players were you know You didn't hit twenty five thirty home runs you weren't that big, a deal so I, could argue, that you know I? Lost a lot because I didn't? Take, steroids because I. Feel, like you. Know hit one. Hundred seven home runs in my career I feel like I would have hit twenty or thirty. Home runs a year head I'd done that so I mean, for me It's tough one because what. I've always heard also. About the hall of fame is it's not. The holy chapel you know it's it's just. The best players in the game and you heard Chipper Jones talk about I mean. Barry Bonds, was just ridiculously good he's. The best player to ever put on a uniform like you said, and, I know, how hard this game is whether you're taking drugs or not I. Keep in mind there's a lot of guys that did steroids the never. Really did anything in the game. Now I'm not defending it, and I'm, not saying it's the right thing to do in fact that was the total opposite, but I can't see where you know some guys. Would be like well you know Barry Bonds Sammy Sosa guys that are under this. Cloud of suspicion. I liked that, that term Would be voted out because you know, or not voted in the opinion of that because this is tough I mean it is a tough tough bet, game to play and again there's a ton of. Guys that took it that never. Had any success so I, mean it definitely helped. These guys on the. Flip side and this is where I struggle because there are also probably guys who took it at are probably. Already in, the, hall of fame that we just don't know about because the bottom line is how. Many drug, tests did Roger Clements how many. Drug tests did Barry Bonds and the answer that question is is absolutely. Zero which you can say that about everyone who's getting into the hall of. Fame this year the. Question is the suspicion is there the suspicion. Wasn't there with others and for those who. Decided to not take that route sometimes it was a matter of being able to. Look themselves, in the mirror at the. End of the day here's Jim Thome me never thought about doing, it, never as, it got going on you heard about it obviously but never seen. It it was never around And at the, end of the day as. I said, you look in the mirror and you feel darn proud of what you've. Accomplished and how, you did it and that's that's the greatest feeling ever for me is to know that man all those times that you struggled and the success that you'd get it the right way that that's what I feel most proud of is that there there's parts of these failures and successes that you go through but you worked? Really hard in during both of those times to, accomplish what you wanna do accomplish Jim Thome on steroids and his decision to not use. Because he wanted to look himself in the mirror every tell me we'll be enshrined tomorrow in Cooperstown this is the baseball hall, of fame special on ESPN radio and the ESPN app called Briscoe Todd Walker with you I feel like we, opened a can of worms when we we we. Asked Kenny Lofton about the Chipper. Jones comments about Barry Bonds, and wanting to be. But I also feel This, is a very natural conversation for the hall of fame, and I know, that there are a lot of people who feel like I do and they are conflicted and I just. When I, think of my formative years as a baseball fan for me of a group of cops fan like I can't think of the cubs in not think of a Sammy Sosa Mark McGwire just sort of by that connection and that season and to think of those two not being, in the hall of fame it kind of in some ways seems ridiculous to me because of all, they gave to the game like re rewarded them with our fandom we were warded them rewarded that's really. Hard for me to say here rewarded them with. MVP's and in the case of Roger Clemens Cy youngs in the moment we weren't complaining when we were enjoying what. They were giving us those seasons why are we complaining now when. We're just suspicious yeah and that's a great point people forget how it all started you, know there were guy Donate prior to two thousand three then they? Do, this test out there this. Imaginary test and if more than. Five percent, were were found Positive then they would enact. This rule in two thousand four and this. Is you know after Jose can Saco had said hey this is going on in the game we've got to get on top of it, and I think at that time but, see like had a. Decision to make and there really wasn't a decision because now that it's public, you've got to do something about it but keep in mind we had a. Home run race going on, between Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. And that brought the people back, after the strike and a lot of people a lot of fans said we're not. Going back to baseball these? Guys are? This and, that and but that home run race between. Mark McGwire Sammy Sosa brought the fans back so what do you do you know and again those guys under suspicion never been found guilty and so how do you determine who gets in the hall of fame and who doesn't, know I can understand, the argument that. If you. Were proven, guilty and you had, a positive steroid test that you would be, held out, but if you haven't then I don't I don't I. Again I'm not for steroids but if. You've got a. Cloud of suspicion I mean that's just an opinion i just i just don't know and i played on against barry bonds and i've seen that dude there will never be a better baseball player especially better hitter than barry bonds and whether he took steroids or not that guy was fun to watch so and i think once one gets in as in one player who has this suspension i i think when one gets saying it's gonna open the floodgates which is interesting because of who becomes eligible next year with andy pettitte who was like yeah i used steroids once and it was sort of like you know the one time oops i didn't do it again and tom verduci who was on e._s._p._n. radio earlier this week he has a hall of fame boat he sort of thinks along the same lines when one gets in when there's turnover and younger voters start to have the edge it's going to change for clements to me i think it's gonna come down to their this is their sixth year what i see happening here is younger voters and literally larger these younger voters guys were just getting for the first time we're basically in junior high school in the steroid era was Raging so they weren't around for. What the game was like certainly can. Read about it I'm sure they followed it as fans but guys identified as first. Time, voters in the last two years they've gone twenty three to, twenty six and twenty four twenty six for climate these guys are polling ninety percent plus, on, first time voters what they're not getting is getting people, who are, returning voters change. Their. Minds the I think people have been voting for a while their positions are pretty calcified. At this point so it's mostly going. To be about how much can this roster iffy will voters turn over in the next four years is that enough and is. There enough time now for Clemens in Bonn. It could be is year seven next year..

"For, joining us what for In your? Memory, Bank when you think? Of. Those two what do. You think I mean there are two different guys, in two, different dynamics to the two and when. You look, at Chipper Jones you know I call Chipper Jones a smooth, operator you know, he's one of those guys that was just kind, of cool calm and collective and, he pretty much just He had no fear. And no worries in the world when, he was, out in the field and in the. Clubhouse and, he was one of those guys that just enjoy playing with, and Jim Thome, as we always call him The big comb dome you know he was basically one of the, one of the biggest guys didn't know how strong you was or how good he was in, playing with Cleveland and again but Jimmy he was just one. Of those guys that just he just didn't know how good he was, and we, saw it on a? Daily basis, how he had a good eye at the plate and you just had the strength that was just unbelievable Kenny when when people argue whether that chemistry makes a difference in the, clubhouse I mean can you talk about I mean is there a nicer guy in baseball than Jim Thome e Oh no it's it's awesome he's just again he just He just you. Know again like you said he wanted a nice guy he's just he's one of those guys are just just to be happy on your. Just to be on this earth and some people happy just having this, having this kind of money having this kind of car Jimmy was just. Happy waking up in the. Morning going to the ballpark that's just how you are what? Do. You think is his biggest contribution to the game pardon what? Do, you, think is his. Biggest contribution to, the game Oh Phillies biggest contribution I guess from my standpoint is just He was just this normal guy, just, is great all around guy under. Spirit like like Todd say he just wanted the nicest guy I think he. Just he brought to the game that people have to understand you can be, a nice guy in this, game and go a long way say. Nice guy last though told me that guy finished first guy can you get off baseball for a second and. Ask you a question, and this is my own. Personal benefit there's a small. Story but in nineteen ninety eight I'm with the, Minnesota Twins, we go into Cleveland to play. All you guys you know big powerhouse. Team, after the game. We go to a Janet Jackson concert The. Velvet rope tour and nobody. Knew I don't know if you knew but Janet, Jackson calls, Kenny Lofton onstage. And I don't, even know if you remember the song Love, song tell, you I mean come, on, remembers tell me about that now come on man dance Everyone knew that I was still, am agenda Jackson fan so I just got word because again Janet, and when Jenner was in town the guys got bought posters and stuck them. All in my locker and it was pretty crazy and they knew how much a fan I. Wasn't I guess it got to the manager and the people they ended up getting getting. Enough tickets I guess, the tickets were, in nice area and somehow I got caught up on stage so a memory again. Like you, said I will. Never forget and she sits down and he's, dancing Oh my goodness Thinking as. UCLA, has happened Well I'm a phone stage and you got. Janet Jackson had the time she was the. Hottest thing. On the planet oh yeah so you got the hottest thing on the planet dancing all. Over you with the little it, was called, the velvet rope lap dance and she kinda tried me to the chair and Oh Oh Hi to. Janet Let me down again and. And it happened For your, next thirty or you, went thirty. For thirty which one wasn't oh actually nine. You have one of my best year rolling All the time On the shell. Pennzoil performance line the baseball hall of fame special ESPN radio and, the ESPN, app Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker with. You can eat there are few people who have, been more outspoken I think about the steroid era and its impact on. Baseball, than you I I want you to hear something and then I wanna get your. Reaction to this this was Chipper Jones earlier this week on. The Dan lebatardshow I have no problem whatsoever Saying the very best baseball player I've ever seen donning uniform I have no. Problem with that I think he's a hall of Famer whether. There's a cloud of suspicion Or not part of me Says that if he gets into this class He's going to be the focus of the rest of us, are going to be forgotten. About Kenny Lofton your thoughts in a second we want to hear your thoughts to treat us. At the one eight hundred. Flowers dot com Twitter feed at? ESPN. Radio what, is your reaction to that wow I mean I thought, I knew a, little bit better than that but for me knowing the game. Playing the game and being, around that game and I just, for me I've always been outspoken about it and it just Irks me really bad when guys talk about performance Drugs 'cause, I know I played the game the right way and I kinda got off the hall, of fame ballot because guys using performance enhancing. Drugs, and then, you got people like Alex Rodriguez yeah Alex Rodriguez they're. Praising him on ESPN about the, game of baseball you cheated the game of, baseball but. You being. Praised on Sunday night baseball FOX TV, I don't I can't even watch it because again I just can't praise a guy who cheated the game that I love so passionately and did I put my heart and soul into the game to get their watch guys who cheered and. I'm playing against guys who cheated competed against guys you also have to compare it your compared to those guys that irks me just the most that I'm looking at. My numbers and. Compare my numbers to steroid guys that's not cool so let me ask Of of both you guys, with your many many years in the game of baseball the baseball hall of fame special as we're talking about one of the things that you can't avoid anymore when it comes to the hall of fame and the impact that steroids has. Has had on who gets in who does not when you're in the game of baseball and people around you are taking steroids can how hard is it to say. No even though. You see the impact Again because I know, who I am as a person and. A as an individual I'm not a cheer and understand that so some people don't you know you feel. Like you get an advantage now but again you know you you got to use felt like you had to, cheat to be on top of the game I felt like I was on top of game without cheating and you see it around? You, but for me I never actually So, it but I heard about it but again. I couldn't, say nothing about, anyone because I didn't know nothing I didn't see nothing but again the guy I talked about. All the time that put his put his his name out there for that cause of it. With Jose he, told the truth What was. Going on and if you. Think about, it no one that he called out has sued him or. Even called him out. In the, media went to him and say I want you to say you slander my name no not one person has done that because he. Was telling the truth What about you what do you think How hard well. I'm, in the, same boat as Kenny. Like you know Kenny was a speech he could flat out run, yet hit a command of the zone. And he just used the entire field I played second base. And so I, hit ten home. Runs that was okay twenty years ago, let's say more like thirty years ago but I got swallowed up by guys starting to hit twenty home runs twenty five. Thirty home runs playing up the middle and when you, get swallowed, up with guys like that you. Know you become a dime a, dozen and so we can't. Just said is similar to, my situation you lose money that way. You lose, all kinds of other stuff in fact I'd almost say that my. Career was cut short, because of that and so. You know I'm not, a cheater either I never took them but I think people have this misconceived notion that that it was stone out in the locker room like a birthday. Cake at a kids party like everybody, I never saw anybody do it. Either and it wasn't readily available Nicole you, and I talked about this. Off air but it wasn't readily available so it wasn't a deal where you could just go around. And do it if you wanted to but in that and I and sometimes I thank God for that. Because I didn't? Even have that temptation I. Always was good enough when I got to, the big leagues so I. Just stuck with that Kenny we appreciate your time and your honesty and your candor for joining us. On his baseball hall of fame special on ESPN radio we've opened up a can of worms Todd Walker We're going to keep that can of worms open because, one of the inductees has talked about. This rather honestly as well why it was something his dad would have said to him if you chosen the other road why. It kept him cleaned find out what it is Your, radio your computer your phone Your smart, speaker to, play yes ESPN?.

"That have sons in the, big leagues now so that makes me feel for sure but you know early nineties I was. In college at LSU is when I was watching the Atlanta Braves and all that big run that they have, with Chipper and. Greg and the guys you mentioned that are all in, the hall. Of fame You know. When we're younger and, I guess, I, wasn't that young back then but it. Has an impression on you that kind of fades. As you, get older but, you remember those times I mean you talked about you know you're from Chicago right or hour and a half outside of Chicago how about those times for, you like when you were watching the cousin, me who are you watching what's Chicago back then back in the nineties when you were when you lived when you grew? Up, in Chicago side of Chicago you said you were huge watching the cubs who the, players there that you know that that you loved I'm. Trying to think at this I don't. Know so okay, here's the true story back in those days it was less about the players and more about I got to go to the ballpark with my dad and, like the daddy daughter outing and things like that as I got older It was a bit more. About just kind of fall in love with the. Game and things like that I was never really like super into the player except for this one time this. Guy named Todd Walker Paid for the cobs now what would happen is we'd come outside all. The parking was right there Remember all the way around and, when you'd walk out there were, and it, was kinda cool because nobody cared really who I was but you get, part of that you. Know because they are just crazy about the cups of what you just. Said wasn't a particular player it was just the, team and I'd walk outside. And there'd be thousands I swear if I, sat there and sign, every it'd, be there for hours and, so sometimes you had to say no and and and it you. Know kind of stunk for us but but every home game you'd walk out to the parking lot and there would be thousands of people and that what you just said is. Exactly kind. Of what pity is is like a Chicago Cubs fan up until, a couple years ago of course now they win the World. Series, and it's it's. A new. Dynamic but. It seemed. Like everybody just loves being at the ballpark yes that's to me that's. That that's baseball like it it hurt for a really long time to have them be so bad I was sort of a little bit of a mental case during their run in. The postseason a couple years ago back to head a. Lucky sweatshirt that I refuse to stop wearing even though my infants daughter had Spit up. On it. A number of times yeah I was I was that person thousands of. Stories like that yeah I know it's terrible it's Nicole Briscoe and Todd Walker on the baseball hall of fame special presented by indeed Chipper Jones ranks in the top three in Braves. History in every major offensive category We could go down the line you said. Earlier, you think. He is one of the best third baseman of. All, time he also gets. Compared to one of the greatest ball players of all time you're talking about nerve wracking my induction is Sunday and my wife is do with our seventh boy on Monday I tried to get her to stay home because I was nervous about everything that's going to be going on here, to begin with and you know, I was, nervous about her traveling up here, certainly nervous about her travelling back hopefully. Little Cooper decides he wants to be a couple of. Days late in waste till, we get back to, Atlanta to to say that I'm going to be nervous about the speech is one thing but being nervous about your wife you know going into labor on induction Sunday that's a whole different kind of nervous so we've got our hand signals kinda. Down right now so I believe I'm going I in the rotation so they're going to try and get me up there and get me often and hopefully get her, into a nice cool spot so. That we don't, unders labor any sooner than needs to be so nerve wracking to say. The least this weekend I'm apparently so nervous about this show that I actually. Hit the wrong sound because. I meant to play the sound to you about him being compared to Mickey Mantle That was made more sense in that situation what comparisons Well I mean for for Chipper Jones I I, think about how surreal that, would be because you. Know when? We play, this game we're fans, of it you know I mean like I told you, I grew, up watching the. Braves because we had TBS you, know here, in Louisiana and so I, was watching, the you know the Glenn Hubbard. And the you know Chris Chambliss and Dale Murphy days and so when I got to the big leagues and I was I was. Stepping to, the, plate for the first time in Atlanta I mean. I I had no chance because, you know, it was it was just so to me you know it's too much and, then and, then I could go on into. Stories about you, know, get, on third base in Baltimore Cal Ripken says eight-odd Todd what's going on. And that floor when you're first in the big leagues so when you get on that stage and now you're in the baseball hall of fame and, for Chipper, who looked up to a lot of guys I'm, sure especially, in Atlanta and the guys that I mentioned you. Know to be able to. Give a speech, like that it's got, to be surreal speaking of stages I'm not. Sure anyone and we haven't even talked about. Him yet Jack Morris I'm not sure. Anyone has pitched on a. Bigger stage or, as long as he did and put the performance in he did The nineteen ninety one World Series game seven arguably one of the greatest games, of all time period and it almost didn't play out, the way. That it did Jack. Morris who pitched ten innings was given an out. Became up in patted me on the shoulder. And said great game we got Agee Rick Aguilera warming up. In the bullpen was her closer and I think, it's just my. Gut feeling I. Think he gave me out if I wanted it. Out when I looked them, in the eye and said I'm not, leaving it's my game I, don't know what else he could have, said he. Turned away, in walkaway went down to our pitching coach dick such in the short conversation and, I think Suchy kind of said he's fine you, know, I really believe such much the. Said something positive, about me. In TK turned round threw his arms up in the air and says oh what the heck go get him it's. Just game It's just. A game it's just game, seven of the nineteen Ninety-one World Series, Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker with, you on the baseball hall of fame, special special. Jack Morris, will go into the hall of fame tomorrow afternoon in Cooperstown he did go the, distance in that game one of the greatest World, Series, games of all time we'll talk..

Know chippers wife is pregnant right now right I did not know that, since do Monday wow Chipper says it's. Going to, be a boy they're gonna name. Coop Okay his wife is gonna. Be in Cooperstown and the plan is to, get back. To Atlanta for for her to give birth to little coop I love the name by the way Cooper so perfect and I'm sure they've? Got good, hospitals there and? And what what cool thing would there be a little cooped to grow up four Cooperstown I mean sure why not but like as, someone who is like I did the. Travel, thing when I was pregnant with both of my kids that's kinda, stressful not knowing where you're. Going to be obviously Chipper Jones has a bit more of. The teaching, in his wallet and then Nicole Briscoe dies so. Like getting back and forth maybe a little bit easier but yes that's one of the things on chippers mind. This what do you think when these guys go up and. Speak like Vlad has talked about how he's gonna give he doesn't want to put. A lot of thought and effort he wants to? Do just whatever comes from his heart when. He. Gives his speech what are you expecting from. Some of these guys Well of course is from a different, country so I don't, really know what to expect but they all get. This. All uptight only once you know and, and they want to say everything is is the eighteen years that Chipper played or the you know. The sixteen years Blad played or whatever Jim, Thome Tony. Play twenty one you know and so they've got one chance to really tell the world what they really felt about their career and and? So it's, it's a lot? Of pressure there you know and so I can imagine that that they don't sleep the night before and us as baseball players were, you're typically used to some sort of. Pressure, you know and and and so radically enough even those talent on, the baseball field when I. Speak I have speaking engagements I can kind of call upon. That you, know that that ability to to deal with that. Type of stuff but I can imagine if you're having to put a speech together for that that's that's a. Once in a lifetime deal and and it's going to be. The typical you know you think your families and of course in Chipper Jones Casey's. Especially going to take his wife for being there You know that close, to giving birth but I don't I mean, wow what an opportunity you know Tim curtain is going to, join us in about an hour on the, shell Pennzoil performance line it's Nicole Briscoe Todd Walker, on the, baseball hall of fame special Chipper Jones. Is going to be, in trying, to tomorrow. Afternoon one thirty eastern in Cooperstown this is a guy who's joining us former teammates in Greg Maddux and Tom glavin and schmaltz Smoltz in the the hall, of fame. I mean what that group has done with their manager and Bobby Cox is is remarkable that the dynasty, that was the Braves organization when you have, all that, talent it, would kind of I, wouldn't be surprised if Bobby Cox was like yeah I, don't remember the first time I met so and so but. He does remember the first time he met and saw Chipper Jones I. Used to do a lot of scouting when I first became a general manager, and my always would tell Paul Snyder don't let me know which player we're looking at, when they're, exercise and I want to be able, to pick them out, and I went on some road trips with Paul Can never pick out the guy well we go up, the bolts high school and I tell Paul the same thing don't tell. Me which one is Chipper Jones okay because they should I think Paul third guy, in the first row he said you finally got one writing and that was Chipper Jones he stood out, like a sore thumb I've been the lucky one for. All these years to have players like Chipper Jones Apparently there's also something about his face and. We'll. Find out what. That is a win Tim joins us in just, a little, bit when you think of the best third baseman in. All of baseball history where does Chipper. To you fall on that list well when you when you combine the entire package Chippers the best in my in my mind you know of course I didn't play against. Some of the the early grades but but you know in the in the switch hitting deal is is kind of a dying breed I think too because we always looked, at it, as you gotta, spend, half, the time practicing on, one side of the plate instead of your full attention on one side and so. It's just a difficult thing to do and Chipper made it look easy so that you, know you put that in with just his. Strong arm and his six four build and you know and and and, as everybody knows especially Atlanta just as ability to? Understand, and play the game from an early age He's gotta be, up there in my, mind he's one of the bay is the best because you know I played. A lot of great ones but they could do one or the other they couldn't do both in excel at both you know and and Chipper was that guy you had. To play against him you got to play with Trevor Hoffman who I think has done something remarkable and just making it to the hall of fame because he's only the, sixth relief, pitcher elected to, the, hall, of fame we'll probably, get a seventh next year when Mariano Rivera gets on the ballot for the first Probably going out on a limb with with that one there what was it like to watch. His stuff from the, from from your vantage, point what, makes a pitcher dominant is their ability to command the fastball and of course in Trevor especially in the early days, through the ninety five plus. Plus plus fastball and could really blow it in there put it. Where he wants to but also a secondary pitch in and dominate that as, well and forever hop and it was that change up and. Then ultimately when you're at the plate and you're watching this guy none of his motion moves, none of his facial expressions move and that stuff that you're trying to. Pick up on as a hitter and so for Trevor when, you face him you had we call, it an educated guess based on the count. What's common and what the guy has a, Trevor there, was it was a complete guess there was no education to it. Because his motion was the same everything was identical whether he threw the ninety six ninety seven hour fastball a whether he through the eighty to seventy nine hundred change up so you you really had. To guess on what pitch was coming and if you're wrong yet no chance and and and And, he was, able to those change up in hitters counts you know two and three and one stuff like that he thought for, a swing and miss pitch. Which would drop out zone for a strike and if you're looking. At your geared up hundred percent fastball those that change up you'll give up, on it and it just floats right up in their end. Of the strike zone so that's what made Trevor Hoffman so unique it was it was like, he was Picasso was art Yeah, I don't know if guys are really embracing the idea that that fourth pitcher. That third pitch in their arsenal could be kind of the. Forefront pitch they could use and so so often we. Do get. Caught up, in, velocity. And what are. The radar gun says and things like that, I think they re don't realize. The art of pitching at times and. That was something that I relied on the art of pitching I feel like we could turn, that into, a book Nicole Briscoe Todd.
