"On ESPN radio all throughout the day. Stugatz claimed during the break that Scott van pelt made him cry last night in talking about how Juwan Howard cried that was pretty cool to see Juwan Howard introduced as the Michigan coach and it meaning so much to a guy who you know, got one hundred million dollar contract when he was in the league that, that job would mean so much as someone who did the hundred million dollar contract is usually aren't willing to sit on the end of an NBA bench. Bright learning how to become an assistant coat. Yes. I mean it was it was interesting to watch goosebumps for major wa and not even being able to start the press conference because he was so emotional be back in Arbor, Michigan play that sound in a second. But Chris Cody was saying that he loves s VP in what he does. And he doesn't understand what s VP does in that he says that Scott van pelt says the thing that he was thinking, but just better. Her. Well, but Christian I've been discussing this week is the one big thing and how it makes us emotional. And it really does Scott's not saying, anything new, he just has a delivery. That makes me cry. I gave last night's one big thing, five tiers, I have a tier system. Five tears last night for one big thing. He doesn't come at you with hot takes. He says reasonable things but he just articulates it better than everyone else. So let's hear Juwan Howard here. Ramoche inal being introduced he was at the center of the five five he was sort of the conservative member of the fab five, Jalen, and Chris Webber were more about the swag than he was, was rob Pelinka. And so here is John Howard's introductory press conference at the tough job because beeline, there had super disciplined teams they always played well, and here's Juwan Howard, stepping informed. Well. Tears of joy. Great. Thank you. Everyone. I said, I was gonna cry. Just never happens when you aside about something so special to you, the main so much. Last time I had a press conference in this building for nineteen ninety four declared thousand go to the NBA felt like I was down my teammates, because I didn't do what I came here to bring a championship to this university, university dot care. So much about gifts. You can see that now. Now, let's fast for twenty five years later. I'm back STAN where you moved by any of that. Absolutely. I am by the fact that you know what you said about these guys who are one hundred million dollar players. I went through it with Patrick Ewing. I mean, who's even a much bigger star than Jilan, and then was willing to serve his time as an assistant coach and, and learn to be great in, in an entirely different line of work. I mean, I have great respect and four juon like I do for Patrick and was really moved to see how meaningful it was to him. It's God's I want to ask you a question because do any of you in the shipping container? Remember John Wehner? You remember John, Wayne, our backup majorly. Remember all the ninety Florida. Florida Marlins fan. Yep. I spent a year, pretending I was John Wayne. Okay. For those of you do not know. No, you think he's joking. I don't think he is John Weiner. He pretended because he worked in the Marlins ticket office and got a small World Series ring, not so small. I mean listen way nizing at the time was very nice. This is the nineteen Ninety-seven World Series. He got every employee, a World Series ring, I happen to be one of those employees, I think at the players ring, but I still got a decent. Listen STAN, I think of what a better scam. You can think of in baseball then backup catcher, always wearing a mask who has a name similar to yours. John, Wayne, or if you could ignore that he was five six and no major league catchers since before Yogi Berra has been five six, if you ignore that Jon wiener was John Wayne for a year, pretending when he met people that he was the backup catcher for the champions, those Dan, yes, because or was the backup catcher and. Wayne put everyone's last name on the ring. So my, my last name was Weiner. And so I just quickly show it to people, and I would tell them I'm John Wayne or backup catcher for the world champion Florida Marlins that worked out well for he's. This gusting. Whatever we talking, he's reservation he is a broadcaster now for the Pittsburgh Pirates. And he was, you know, he was considered someone who was fun. But he would not, you know, nothing that resembled swagger was ever in his game because backup catchers in baseball, or not allowed to have swagger did point. And so he well, unless you're Paul Baako Bob Natal's. Oh, so we've stumbled upon something here. John Wayne said of Derek Dietrich air miles Davis. Paul bach. Garrick teacher has seventeen home runs against the pirates. He's got like seven home runs twenty two at bats. He's Babe Ruth all of a sudden he was on pace to break. Barry Bonds is record for home runs per at bat there and heat because he's been pimping out the trots. John Wayne, her who didn't hit many home run. Ones. Said that Derek Dietrich's grandfather would be rolling over in his grave, if he saw the amount of enjoyment. Derek Dietrich was getting out of hitting his home run. And I'm just curious as someone who's a baseball fan and you can be anti-fun. I'm curious what you think of what's happening here. No, I mean, I think look those guys, especially the guys who aren't going to hit forty a year. Yeah. You gotta have fun when you hit him. I mean I have no problem in that. I mean you can go too far.

Hello, scott. Mark stewart. How are you, buddy? Big brother, Scott haven't heard from you in a while route. Yes, they're working last time. I lay trying to stay out of trouble. I heard that good man. But anyway, joy, listen to you guys on the way home much Mutaab with the Phillies. Can go either way with brother Mark's sandwich. You were standard. I, but I, I definitely think may I ask you the only thing I'm worried about. I knew we need to start still kind of tweaking that bullpen because correct me if I'm wrong. I know it's a different sport. It can do running back by committee. Of course, we win the Super Bowl, but what team has won the World Series where, you know, with pitching, you know relief pitching committee, if as ever been one to like to the World Series and win. John has a better recollection as far as a starting pitching staff, that was similar to, to this staff of the two thousand eight Phillies didn't have strongest staff in the world their offense. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. That's that was trying to figure out. You know, seems everyone in the World Series. We know what the you know, kitchen committee or wherever you want to say, really pitching. No by committee, the re the relievers one, listen, Scott. I mean, I, I would have to go back and look and see if there wasn't a I mean, heck they're nurses. They're closer right now. I know L A had said that he hopes that he's the guy but that's more times than not. He's been the guy that's getting the opportunities if he's veil by the Indian sort of did it a few years ago what they did is they had injure Miller, who was their best reliever and they'd a lot number good relievers. And they said, we're not gonna use their best reliever in the ninth inning. We're gonna use him when we need him, we just kind of gives the engage thinking, I don't wanna be prisoner using my kind last last-inning. I'm gonna us guys when it makes sense. And that's what the Indians did. And they came very very close to winning the World Series. They just fell short high leverage reliever. All right. So let's let's talk eagles. They continue their, their OTA's Carson Wentz is on by loves Carson Wentz. He's going to going to win the MVP this year, and I think Carson's gonna have a great year but about this time of year you start getting these cooder back rankings. Come out, right? You'll get the player rankings come out NFL network. They do that as we get closer to training camp. I believe Eicher maybe even in training camp. But you'll get different assorted things that come out because you need stuff to talk about. If you're right for the NFL you're the NFL network, so they'd like to do the quarterback tears and I'm a big fan of the quarterback tears. So you have the cooter like tier one, which is the elite level ORG quarterbacks crying. No that no. That's, that's the, the Wentz weiner's that are that are out there crying. I heard Deford called the, the midday show yesterday is just impurity tears streaming down his face. People are closing words. Bobby ROY and could tie people go up be fair, and I wouldn't even talking about what, what people are being fair to him. The Wentz weiner's are having a hard harder time, getting over this whole thing, then the foles people, the phones people for the most part of moved on. Right. The emotion has been separated from it in everything else, but the winds weiner's continue this, this it's almost it's completely made up there making up this whole thing about the disrespect towards Carson Wentz. So anyway. Find out I wanna I wanna remind the winds wanders that when we talk about where Carson is in the quarterback tears. Now, if we're doing the elite level the tier one. Who we talking about here? You still put Brady in there. Even though we didn't have a great year because these Brady won the Super Bowl Brady manning. I'm pretty manning. Breeze breeze. Mohajirs Mahomes Wilson. Those are my luck. No luck snotty Lee way to being. All right here to on his way to be in tier to the very good quarterback some on this burger rivers, Ryan. Andrew luck Carson. After you've course it into your two. Oh, yeah. Why not question any any other quarterbacks in that year? Would you say you say? Rivers rivers. Ryan, ryan. I don't like I don't like Philip rivers, but based on the season. He had last year. They won twelve games. He put up big numbers. I think you have to put him in a long Jerry award. Nobody on Jeff but as far as this tier thing. That's what he's getting along Chevy award. So rothlisburger rivers, Ryan and Andrew luck. I think been and then my young guns. Andrew luck Carson Wentz into Shawn Watson because he those guys that are elite status type of quarterbacks see why they have capabilities. And so I I don't put I put them. I put the tier three. I put all these guys together Goth Wentz Dak, we'll give us the tier what tier three tier three tier twos. Very good threes, kind of like average starting quarterback right? Tier Goth Wentz deck, maybe foles Trubisky. Baker mayfield. I'd throw in there, like, right now, currently going into the season, that's where I would put those guys you could win with those guys certainly those guys could end up being in MVP type player. But as it stands right now. No, no. They can't everybody in there can't be an even the people there. But some of them can be. Who could code that Baker could Baker may be back. No Carson, we already know he has the MVP in his trophy case already. Wait, wait. Nick elected Jared Goff would never be an MVP. It doesn't get talked about being a top quarterback. And he just came from the Super Bowl Trubisky Trubisky. Oh, never never went to MVP. Right. Well Daqing wins Dax not winning eight cans, probably in. That's in that in that tier three for me. You already has an MVP. Nick foles is in there. Yep. Nick foles into three tickets. You could see where I'm going here. There's no way Carson Wentz could be in the same category with, with Nick foles in Prescott and Goth and or dare gone can or can't maybe I think he's way better than camp. I p under his belt. I would think that, that more fairly groups Wentz than if you're putting them in with Ross rothlisburger in the rivers and the Matt Ryan's the guys that have been there and done that for a long time. And also consistently you're playing to our Carson obviously has that has the, the, the one knock on them was didn't have great year last year. And he's got the injury history. That's why I had Sean watching an eight category. And so, so as Andrew luck who also has an injury history, I put I would put Watson in tier three is well with, with those other, you account Andrew lucked their there to me based on what he did last year. Oh, you don't count the injuries. I mean he he had a shoulder issue that he missed nearly two seasons for. But he didn't miss time before that. He played all of last season. So again, you didn't count. You don't count the shoulder. You don't count that injury. No, I'm asking. I'm putting him in the second tier eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four he second tier a second rivers. I'm just John. You don't have the other two guys in there. I'm just county. That's right. But like so you would have put Wentz in not deck. But to include when she should include deck, why I'm include Jared, because the just came from the Super Bowl, the accomplishments are. Similar with wins. And Dak what about Jared Goff got got some the lower end of tier three. Oh, even though he just took his thing into the Super Bowl. Okay. Then put them into your to do. A tier two with you to not. Then what do you say about this as far as tears? We love the tier in its TIAA are not the tears. The Wentz are out there. Shedding right now. Now I think he's in that second here. I don't think that you can put him in the whole Brady Rodgers camp right now. No, but I'm not putting him on day. He's, he's very good to me. He's not somebody who's elite. I don't think you can put him as a league. I know he could prove it the problem to me is this is they, you look at the MVP, caliber seasons so many quarterbacks that aren't that good of had. VP calendar seasons. Derek Carr has done it. Do we really think Cam Newton's top five quarterback? No. And he's somebody. Season. Right. Andy Dalton was somebody who for most of the season have been playing MVP caliber, this is happening. Forget about any right? There was a few years ago where they were saying eighty dollars maybe candidate do ten or eleven games. My point being Bengals fan has never uttered out of my mouth one seat. Well, maybe not yours, but the pundits were saying it hasn't happened with Matt Ryan wanted point being then one season doesn't make you assist. Superb quarterback all seen from cars in his one season. Where's deck? Whoa. Love what he just said. I love what he just said. What did you say? One season doesn't make you a sa- perk quarterback. How they kid in a red jersey getting home fed is. How do you get at least that is the best player in the NFL last year, one year, right? Yeah. One year. So when you're have you talk to Ben about that? What do you have to put Mahomes in the elite status? So one year can't put you in the elites can. Yeah. Okay. Okay. What if he has a bad year this year? He won't be lead status anymore. We know if this fluid. Yes, we know that. But that's why Carson is where he is. Because the very good category. I could I could say that I could certainly say that if you wanted to say, the winches tier two then Dax right there with them, right? You've got to add more people to it. That's why I think the fair place to put him his three with Cam with, with Dak Prescott, you can even throw Nick foles in their eight, eight, eight, seven to nine ninety four ninety four Chris broomball..

"Mobil. Fivethirtyeight we often find ourselves falling down various rabbit holes of data some stories. Some don't we end each week's show with one of these descents the hot take down rabbit hole of the week. Neil take it away. So this week. It is expected that Edwin Jackson of the newly minted member of the Toronto. Blue Jays will make an appearance for his new team, and he will play for what will be a new major league record fourteenth different franchise in his career, can you guys rattle off the teams that Edwin Jackson has played for shell high. I would not before doing this research. I really would only have been able to name maybe like two or three fourteen. Yeah. I don't know. Can you name him? Jeff definitely the Diamondbacks D-Backs for sure. Oakland, the as as okay? All right. Yeah. You said Oakland, that's probably the same as the. Yeah. So he Tigers tiger's. Yes. Laws on the cuts Tigers Braves. He was on the Braves you look at you guys you now, I'm guessing, Sarah. Let's say some more teams, and then you can beat them. If you say, Tampa, just say, okay razor on there. Okay. So he's played for the raise dodgers cubs. Nationals White Sox d-box Braves cardinals as Padres. Orioles Marlins Tigers. And we're hoping the Blue Jays also the previous record in baseball belong to a Tabio dough tell who played for thirteen teams between nine hundred ninety nine and two thousand thirteen I won't ask you the name. All the teams that Octavian dough tell played for I know at least two of them the Mets in the Astros. But you know, I find it interesting. The types of players that kind of recur on the list of the most franchises played for which conveniently baseball reference actually has a page for a lot of these guys. First of all, they're sort of their kind of average type guys dough tell had a better than average. But he was also a reliever and so the bar is a little bit lower there. But they're basically guys that are good enough for teams to want to kind of trade for but they're. Not quite good enough for them to want to commit to long-term or hang onto otherwise, they're durable starter types, in some cases. So you have your Mike Morgan's? Your Bortolo Cologne is up there. You're you pinch hitting specialists like Matt stairs show up near the top of the list. You also have a lot of backup catchers like Paul Baako and Henry Blanco and some of these type of guys these are guys that play forever. And again, they fill like a very specific niche for a team, but they're also super replaceable. And so it's sort of this carousel of backup catchers filtering across baseball. So I was curious as to how that number fourteen different franchises compared to other sports in terms of the most franchises played for. So if you look at the NBA there are actually four guys tied for the most franchises played for at twelve. A piece I won't ask you to name any of these guys, but they are very quintessential ninety. S early two thousands type journeymen guys Chucky Brown. Jim Jackson, Tony Massenburg and Joe Smith age played for twelve franchises a piece and Joe Smith one of those franchises was the timber wolves. And they got into a lot of trouble for the way that they acquired him. So that's fun. One of the one of the twelve teams. And if you look down the list, you also have some future coaches on the list like Kevin Ollie coach at uconn. He played for eleven different teams that tends to be point guards. I think disproportionately in the NBA list. Kenny Anderson in addition to some of those Anthony gold wire, Jason heart. Some of these guys Eddie house. Earl boykin who can forget one of the shortest players of all time he played for ten different franchises. And so that's a little bit to me. Like, the backup catcher is like you need a backup point guard and sort of a floor general to to run the show, but they're also thoroughly replaceable, and you can kind of go through it twelve teams is also the number that leads the NHL Mike cylinder between nineteen ninety two thousand nine he played for twelve different NHL teams. And there aren't quite as many guys at that twelve team Mark in the NHL as there were in the other sports. I think probably it's just tougher to hang on as an older player. And then finally if we look at the NFL, it's harder hardest of all. So the leader in most franchises played for since nineteen. Sixty is Shane Graham, a kicker. He played for ten different teams. You had to play at least one regular season game with with each team that you show up with and then among quarterbacks I found this interesting. So there is a Wikipedia page called journeyman quarterback. Which makes no sense that that is a page and it lists JT O'Sullivan as the most well traveled journeyman quarterback. But it's a little fudging because it lists teams that JT O'Sullivan was on the practice squad of or sort of held the clipboard behind the guy holding the clipboard, but never actually saw the field with those teams. I think that's cheating a little bit. And I would give the crown among quarterbacks in the NFL to one Josh mccown who has actually played regular season NFL games with eight different teams. He edges out. Jeff Blake Steve Bono, Matt Cassel. They've Chris Chandler. They all played seven Ryan Fitzpatrick also on his seventh team right now. So that was a rundown guys of the the most well-traveled players in the four major sports. Fitzpatrick was the only one on that list who like fully st-. Started for all those. Yes, this guy is just gets workload. Yeah. I mean, Josh mccown a little bit. He has been a starter for probably a majority of the teams that he's played for which is very strange both were on the jets somewhat recently. Also, but Fitzpatrick has I think uniquely been considered the answer by you know, at quarterback by some of the seven teams that he's played for and that definitely makes him different. I guess gusts for rot who also played for seven teams. He was he was the Redskins answer until he intentionally headbutted a concrete wall giving himself a neck injury. Maybe demonstrated why he should not have been considered the answer by anyone least of all seven seven different teams. Still my favorite journeyman players got to be Bartoli Cologne. And I it's a crime against baseball that he is not currently on a team it just it's sad. It's true. You can't tell me that some team in the major leagues does not need Bartolo right now. They obviously do. Yeah. He needs to play perfectly nationally teams yet. And if he does he would be just the sixth player in major league baseball history to play for twelve different teams. So he would be, you know, coming up on Edwin Jackson, he'd still need a couple more teams to go. But maybe we could make it happen given that he's almost forty six. Maybe maybe time is over. But that is sad that he's not playing with the exception of maybe Tolo because I've seen him interviewed. You got to figure these are like likeable guys. You know, where they're like. Oh, yeah. We'll get Edwin back. He's he's saying Bartolo is not likeable value. No. He's a little he's not the greatest interview in the world. He seems to sort of he's sort of sticks to himself. I've heard heartbreaking. I don't think he's a bad guy listened Bartolo if you're listening, you probably are. I'm sorry. I didn't mean that way. But I do know what you mean. Jeff though like these are good clubhouse guys. Columbus guys. Then it's also this weird sort of Goldilocks situation where they're good enough to contribute something. But you know, not too good that a team would want to hold onto them for a long period of time has guys is another like trope thirty eight. Guys, their chemistry guys. A big on the little things that help a team when that don't show up in anyone stat she, you know, they also all always follow the games unwritten rules to. Oh, yeah, they play the game the right way they do. Now. You know, now, I am obligated to look up Brian dosier. Sarah's one of Sarah's all time favorite players who she agreed with when he complained about. What was the play was like bunting in the in the ninth inning of a not even a no hitter. It was like a shutout or something. And he was mad that someone wanted. Listen, sometimes your loyalties to a player, override, your knowledge that what they're saying is nonsense. I hear you on that. But but dosier somehow only on his third team. Thirty two. Yeah. He he he needs to start Swailes topping team. He will challenge Bartolo at least if not at Jackson Joe Smith was a number one overall pick. Right. He was out of Maryland a little unusual compared to the the rest of this group. Yeah, it's a little tough to find other guys on this list that were considered had any kind of star potential. I guess Kenny Anderson at some point was a high pick and then in in baseball. It's even harder to find guys that are, you know, had any kind of elite performance at some point. But Kenny Lofton stands out in that regard. He played for eleven teams. And in my opinion. I think we even talked about this in an early episode of takedown it is a crime that he's not in the hall of fame that he dropped off the ballot. Kenny Lofton come on. Now. You're right. I think they're holding this eleven team thing against him unfairly even when to when he was with the Mets was consider dislike. You know fee nom reliever. So I mean, there was some like hype around him earlier news career in Cologne. Obviously was a star at one point. Kenny Lofton is in the twins opponents hall of fame. So I'm sure he's fine with that. Yeah. That's enough for. And that is enough for us to that'll do it for this week show. Thank you so much for joining us. We'll be back in your feed next Tuesday. This is still a new podcast.

"But you know. Okay. Forever. Red in spirit, but former player and a man who will be delivering the game balls on opening day. I think deliver one then you say you're taking handing out taking out like two fistfuls like Johnny dean. Balls. I will I will I will have my I will have my pine. Tar rag autumn. I'm making real tacky for them. Wherever starting for standing. This your day job is a GMO Bogart's. You're playing there again. Right. July's actualized. Saturday night. We're going to have some old friends in town to play in. They're going to be playing. I think some red hot chili peppers opening up for cover cover songs and banish can put together with some old guys. We played with around town for that should be fun. And it's so funny because you mentioned you're going out to lunch with Chris. And I'm like, oh, my God, I know him from here, and then he's gonna ban with this guy. And it's so funny. It's a huge town. But the music scene is so intertwined. Everybody knows everybody asks amazing. I don't I don't know half the guys because obviously didn't grow up here. And there such a it's amazing to think of the history, you know, some of these guys that I've known now for for ten years or a little bit more were playing shows when I was still in high school. And they were playing as full on, you know, professional musicians wound is funny who pays attention to because when I posted on our socials they were going to be here. I had a picture of you thrown with a high leg kick. And then I had a picture of you playing guitar at the Mike, but I had to flip it around to. So you'd kind of be you know, it looked better visually. I knew and I even put in there. This is not how he plays the guitar, but very first person that notice, Jamie combs. Hey, you play with who plays in your band knows bands? And he talks about the wrong handed a wrong handed guitar player. But then it's then it's him. And then it's HUD, and all these other guys. It's just it's so funny to see the the community's crossover and another guy that we all know is is our buddy. Brad. I won't go deeper into Brad is specifically other than he's the guy. That makes sure you guys have what you the fuel that you need. Yeah. He's cooking down there every day. He's he's he's the reds number one chef at the ballpark. And he tells me how much fun that is. And how different little idiosyncrasies certain people like this or don't like this. He won't get too deep into it. He goes because I feel like it's almost like a professional confidence. But he said, it is interesting to watch the different personalities in the locker room who wants this and and who wants to app, then he does he also do some like personal chef thing is that if that's a verb for you. Yeah. For me. I had. Yeah. I'll have some parties at the house once in a while or even just it was like during off seasons just needing food. You know, a lot of times depending on who you are like I've been a thin guy. You know, my whole career. So I need a lot of food around. I have needed a lot of food around just to keep my weight up to about one ninety two pitch. And so I mean, I would eating six or seven times a day. And I don't prepare food is one thing that I just don't do is make food. I don't know how to do it. I haven't really dug into it. And I don't have a passion for it. So I would usually have somebody making pre pre made meals that I could get through the day with just to kind of piecemeal my second breakfast, or my my second lunch and late night dinner dream six or seven meters. Here's the problem. We do that too. But it's probably tanning wait the sound. You just heard a four eyeballs rolling right there. But, but that's what's so cool because Brad's done different there. I met him actually back in the day. He was kitchen manager and running the show at the outback steakhouse, then became a big deal within the organ. Has done but he's done different private parties. That we've done we, you know, he's just he's just a guy who just gets it and he can do it quickly. And he knows he can take a look at you. And know what he thinks you're gonna like, and I think nine times out of nine he spot. Oh, yeah. Br breakfast is the is the is the best time to see the guys in a major league locker room because usually the lunch and dinner the food is already going to be your options are already out there. But breakfast is usually somebody there who's whipping up, you know, maybe omelettes and different things that a little bit more just for one person. And and so it's funny to see the guys come in. And somebody like Brad will know, you know, like, oh, Brandon Phillips. All right. Yeah. I know exactly what you want. I know you want like, you know, two pancakes with this on the side in a little bit of watermelon. And then you're gonna make your eggs over medium, whatever it is. And and they know every single guy like clockwork in there. It's fantastic. And I think that's cool. That's again part of that camaraderie talk about spending so much time in the year. And if you mix it up, and you have to do that. But no one people's habits and things like that. So well now someone also told me, and I mentioned Billy Hatcher. There was a story about his locker. Now, you orchestrated quite a few pranks on hatch. I was thinking you were I was gonna say big, I it's funny. I just just opened up for big and rich. Okay. And from here from Cincinnati the Browns for our band opened up in my hometown for charity with big and rich just about a month ago. Maybe not even a month ago. Yeah. And that story so it was it was about me bringing a couple of little people should have the locker room and one of the the one that I knew that actually brought him. And he brought his brother was two foot. Fred who was on stage with big and rich for a lot of years out on tour. Okay. And so the story. Yeah. Yeah. This story the story go I met those guys in in in the Ritz Carlton in Arizona. So it's two thousand and six the season's over IRA through two hundred and forty innings that year, and I we had ten days off, and we had some practices and botchy was our manager. We went to Japan where we played ten games in Japan. And you do this thing they used to do every other year is basically major league baseball star team. And we had David Wright and Jose Ray as the team was fantastic. You know, our all these guys in so we're in the hotel and big and rich was in town plane, I run in the two foot Fred who's on stage with bigger Mitch every night small little guy. And so we become friends. So later on he calls me says I want to come to the Yankee game. I said sure come on down, whatever. But I said any do something for me. I said, I know I want to put you in my locker employees my clothes across the top. And I wanna scare Billy Hatcher because he's terrified a little people. And he says Oliver, this is great egos. My brother's a little guy too. And I said no way so they show up to the stadium and these giant. Black suburbans. I get in the car, it's raining harder than ever seen in my life. He is driving a himself. I'm thinking somebody else's driving driving himself the steering wheel's. Like as big as a watermelon, it's tiny. And and he's got the pedals are all the way up to the seat. He's smoking a cigar. Listen to the radio talking on the phone and just laughing. So he drives down to the stadium. We pull them in. I go inside. And see. We're Billy Hatcher isn't he's eating food inside locker. Where Brad wasn't there at the time. But that's where he would have been cooking. And so I go in there. And and I see is not there. So I run both guys into my locker and shovel men on my on this shelf in my lock and pull my all my uniform clothes across the top. And I go in there, and I'm I'm like breathing hard. And I go I got this all on video. And I say, listen, I got a couple of big one thousand nine hundred fans in here. The love to say, how do you manage a logger? Can he's got it. Right. It from his meal. Yeah. Let me go see him, and he goes over there. And he's talking to these guys for like about thirty seconds. And I just pull back all the curtains and both book to read. Scream at him like that. And Billy looks at him. And it takes him a second. You could see his brain registering what is going on? And he jumps up in the air like a deer got shot. See me and Travis would try to grab it, and he is gone. He's gone, and he doesn't come back in that locker room for like an. And the funny thing was I filmed that he didn't know he was being filmed. I waited two years, and I got him to say some things on video and told him I was doing a skit about dusty. And then we show up one morning in spring training the whole teams there's like one hundred guys there in spring training. And we just click the tape on and I made this video in aid soon as it starts at all. You got me. That's outstanding. That's there has to be. Is there a lot of that goes on amongst you guys? I love that. That's a little bit. It depends on the team. You know, when we had when we had Paul Baako and Mike Lincoln on this team. We had those two guys. And there's a couple of other guys that would have really loved being with them that they they they were always pulling pranks, man. I mean, those guys especially near the end of the season, they would get rowdy. Sometimes I mean, you'd have hamburgers being smushed under your door on the road and all kinds of weird stuff. But as far as like really big stuff, it takes somebody like Ryan Dempster. It takes care of the games. I want to do this stuff. Yeah. That's great. And he told the he had told me about that. Again. You gotta ask him. They didn't tell me the whole story. You have to ask him you'll die laughing. I had to foot in his brother interview afterwards, we interviewed splice this whole thing together..
