"45 and 6 86 8, these sports leader leader. Uh, yes. Thanks for joining us on a Tuesday and this is the show. We'll talk all about the home run Derby. The broadcast beat Alonso, Shohei Otani, Trey Mancini. There was robbery. If you're going to bet on this thing, you might want to do it right. We don't care about international competition well, until accounts will describe that as well. All Star game. Otani is going to do it all The Lillard Rumor is crazy, except for one thing. We got Giants awards today and copes decided to come back. How are you, man? Well, I I didn't have much of a choice in the killing. Great. They put my name on the schedule and it was sleep for four more hours. Or don't That was kind of it. That's a good call. Yeah, I made the right call. I think so. It has nothing to do with me. I would say it's more about to sleep. Anything else You want me to do? Midei's? Yeah, sure. I was like, anyway, I can come in later. If you want later than 10 is fine to whatever you need. No, that's beautiful in your bright eyed and bushy tailed now and you can feels good you can think And yeah, I just remember mornings It's like set about 7 30 because you get there because you get there. Like what? 4 30, Probably for the five o'clock starting earlier, usually closer to four. Yeah, between 3 34 usually is when I get here for the for the normal shift, and I try to get here about 8 30 or so what? I'm doing this with you. So I've been here for a little while today, too. All right. We got a lot going on today. The home run Derby will start it with that We'll get into the All Star game international competition in hoops all those kind of things, but you and I talked extensively about the about the home run Derby. They changed it up a little bit. When a little faster we talked about the the balls that we're not going to be in the human door, so they were going to fly all over the place that the split screen going. They had an analytics channel on ESPN two What was your What was your assessment of the entertainment value of the home run Derby. So it's funny. It's last night. I watched the Derby at at Perry's over on Union Street. You here in the city I was with I was with Murph. I was with Kirk Reynolds. I was with Terry Crowley. Shane Rubin, a bunch of budgetary lots of opinions. Yeah, Bruce Jenkins, all sorts of luminaries hanging around it at Perry's last night for Commerce Pedro Gomez book that he contributed to Steve Cannon, which is very cool in a lot of the proceeds going to the Pedro Gomez Foundation. And I know you guys spent a lot of time talking about that on this show, because because Greg is such a So close with the family, So it was a very cool celebration last night a Pedro and and people hanging around. It was cool that it happened on a night where Pedro probably would have been front center, Murph says. You know, he would have been out there at this at the home run Derby, so it was kind of cool to stand around and watch it with everybody. Everyone was sort of waiting for the Shohei Otani moment, right when he was going to come up and hit and it was sort of funny is he comes up and and how many swings did he take John before he hit one out? 99 swings nine and 13 of his 1st 14. We're not home runs. What's funny is Carrie Crowley standing behind me to the left, and we're both like, you know, and hyped up for this thing and carry just keeps going every swing. Oh, no. Oh, no, This is bad. This is bad. This is this is not good. He's not hitting home runs. This is bad, but the funny thing about this is all those balls. He was hitting dude where he was getting on top of them. They were probably like 110 Miles an hour off the bat laser beams into right field Like I was worried for some of the kids standing out there, man. Well, you know, the thing was, is that you hit this right in the head and something You said yesterday I thought of right away. He doesn't take batting practice outside. He takes it in a cage, so he doesn't He really isn't used to it now. He did win a home run competition in Japan years ago, but he generally doesn't take outdoor batting practice. So he did say that that was a bit Of a hindrance to get started. However, when he took on Juan Soto, he got back into it. He had a great barrage at the end of the the first one. Then they had a couple of minutes to do it again, and he should have won that because he missed. I think his last five or six and he had an opportunity. He was tied with Soto and missed his last five or six. So we could have got on there and then give one soda a ton of credit because then you have a three, uh, swing swing off and so to hit all three, and it's not. It's just It's not. It's not timed or anything. It's just like it's just back to the old format of the three, which was kind of cool, by the way. That was, Yeah, I thought pretty selective with your pitch. But that takes forever. But anyway, he went three for three. Otani missed his first swing and it was over, but he was having fun. I the thing I thought was, after all those swings the average major league superstar All Star player. Would have said Yeah, I'm out of the All Star game. Yeah, it just took too long. He's going to still starting bat leadoff. He didn't. There was no like, are you? Are you too tired? He was just like Get out of here Like I'm playing. They look pretty gassed. He He looked tired after the first round and memory called the time out, and you'd only hit a few home runs after those nine swings, indicated a couple and then call the time out. Boy, he looks winded. I don't know if he's going to be able to, uh, to get this thing going, but was funny as you mentioned about the outdoor batting practices. They televised and they were doing this whole build up thing, and they were interviewing play. Players and talking to Dave Robertson. It was starting to go on while we were doing the show yesterday, but they televised the pre home run derby batting practice. Did you catch any of that? No, I didn't see Otani hit one. So I guess I'm like the upper upper Right field stands like way up there in right field, of course, feel they've got this chorus bar. There's like a silver bullet bar or something up there during batting practice before the Derby started, Otani hit one off of the facing Of that bar up there like he was Some of the shots that were hit in batting practice beforehand were unbelievable, but I don't know..

There's nothing better than baseball on Sunday Memorial Day weekend as we get to the one third mark of the season tomorrow, it's Giants Dodgers down in L. A Giants have taken two of three in this Syriza and the last two in very, very exciting fashion. Well, we're joined by Steve Katzman today. I know Steve Kevin for over 25 years I've known him as Baseball beat writer and author of publisher at West Wellstone Books and Just a good friend and a dear Friend of the late Pedro Gomez and Steve is here to talk about. Project that he has initiated. A wonderful book is coming out. And about the legendary the sweetest guy in the world. Pedro Gomez. So, Steve, Nice to have you with us today. How are you? I'm doing okay? I'm already too great to be on here. And hey, The only problem is we had room for 62 essays in this book, which will be out in July. But we didn't have room for a Marty Loury as say. So we missed out but too bad. Well, I'll do it on the radio on and I'll do it that way. But Pedro Gomez, first of all a dear friend of yours, and we know he passed away ah, number of months ago. Suddenly a wonderful family. A son is a baseball player. But I knew Pedro and Raff went back in our archives to look at some of our old interviews knew him back When I started in 96 97 98. He was a beat reporter in those days and Just a very generous man with me, and I was just learning how to do this stuff, and Pedro would always sit down with me and talk baseball and I knew him over the years and ESPN and His loss was tragic and you were one of his best friends and you initiated this wonderful project. So let the fans know about it and what the book is all about in some of the essays Well, you know, since that you and I were both friends of Pedro, I thought I was just gonna I'll read just a little bit from the beginning. My intro, which is pretty personal, but I write for me. As for so many others who loves Pedro. His death hit. First is the story of a husband and father, a man who always talked about marrying the love of his life. Sandy and a proud father, who talked constantly about his three Children, Rio, Dante and Sierra. First ripple of pain came with knowing what avoid his loss would leave and in their lives. Then came the selfish part of grief for so many of us the feeling of having a part of ourselves ripped away. It was a sniff of vital organ had suddenly been lost. That channeled our capacity for joy and enthusiasm for life. Pedro was in love with life. And in love with all of his friends. He made sure you felt that every time you connected, that was, too if you'd met him once years ago, or like me, then one of his best friends for decades. And the reason I read that is it's been so amazing. I mean, like I was texting with Derek Shelton. You know this week and we've never met. But as soon as I mentioned Pedro, it's like he can't talk about it enough and all around baseball all around baseball media. There were so many people that came forward with stories about the generosity that Pedro had shown at the front times, making a difference in their careers, helping them out as I think he helped you in some ways. We certainly helped me a lot, so that generosity of spirit that we're talking about it. I think it definitely transcends baseball. But then at the same time, Ah lot of Giants fans will remember. Pedro is the guy who is stuck with the tough job. Following bury bodies around for more than two seasons as a reporter for ESPN tough job, But you know Scott Boris, the super agent who has an essay on the book And Dusty Baker, former Giants manager who also has an essay on the book, They both talking their essays about how Berry and Pedro There was always a mutual respect, and I was pretty struck Marty when I went down to the Gomez how's shortly after Pedro died of sudden cardiac arrest in February and standing there next to the flowers that Barry Bonds had sent and You know? Ah, uh, it's something you would never have predicted. Then again, you never predict Pedro leaving us those two, but still, it just showed that even though at times the theater of that moment made it look like they were really at odds with each other that there was so much respect and that's what we saw all over the place. Marty. Well for me, Pedro and you said a beautifully Steve. Those are beautiful words. Um, he showed me the good side of life and the good side of baseball and sports. And seeing him at the Italian grotto and Scottsdale with Gary and Charlie Moynahan. And, uh, there was just always a moment when you know, I always say you can judge how you like people by. There's a ring at the door. You open the door, and there they are, And you you feel good or bad. And when the door opened, then you saw Pedro. You felt good. And all the things that you just talked about. That is what he did for players, but it was just the way that he could conduct himself, Um, professionally. And always make you feel like he was with you. At that moment, another words, the eye contact and the responsiveness and he's a very special man. Very special man. I'm glad to have known him. And the loss for me was was a sad loss. A sad loss for everybody. So Steve Captain is with us. The website is the Gomez rules. Dot com and you can buy the book there and order it. Then it's got all the rules of Pedro Gomez and the Book of Quest. Remember who You Are. About Pedro Gomez. But Steve tell us about more about the book and how to get it. And when it's coming out, and some of the people who wrote the essays Well, let me just first go with that image. You just raised of Pedro Gomez being at your door. I wanted to mention a couple things. First of all the great photographer Bradman Jin, that website that Marty just mentioned the Gomez rules calm. He put that together and has worked so hard. Has picture editor and we have 185 pictures in this book, including many that Aaron that, uh, the photo gallery at the website that Brad put together. You see that? That Pedro Gomez smile there?

"Also, and dream on dish Totally That used to be a phrase, um, embraces bug, right, some righteous, but we got going on there, right? Just delish. It's wants his condo. Anderson is just turning into the guy the sort of the poster boy of this team you know, just this lovable guy came out of Oakland and Surprising the odds, etcetera, and he stopped by with Fitz and Kalinda, and he just can't believe how good dream on and Steph are playing right now. I'm a beneficiary of you know these guys their Hall of Fame. My cute, You know, Dre. Mina's has 16 assist today. That's amazing. You know, from our starting center last five games, he's in double digit assists, so I know man. Just get Steph Open. Either step is open arm of the opening, so I'm aware of that. The defense thing on leave him, So I just find those gaps and get those easy buckets. Not no jury. Monty's everything. Sometimes he sees a little toothpick before any of us here, but I mean, it is great to play with a guy like that. Yeah, it is. It's funny. I was reading the dream. I was yelling at the team and garbage time last night, when my last images for I went to bed and I was thinking about that. Did you read that thing about on who was it was a bogus who did the thing on Andre Iguodala and how he Had no tolerance for low I Q players. You guys read that? Yeah, that was, I think was on bogus Podcast. Yeah, he went on, he said Andrea and he said it would be a meaningless game. They would be blowing somebody out and some 11th and 12th guy would be playing. And Andre was laser focused on everything they did, and if they made stupid plays Andre wanted about. Yeah, can't have dumb players on this team probably put the players will probably figure out who it was. Yeah, I figure it out on the team, hypothetically, Berry and guys here, McCall says he's asking what we call Jordan Bell, too. All right. Well, what do I need to say? What needs to be said here? I mean, with the exception of those minutes in Game seven against O K C might have been fair job very shy, was out there looking off jumping Just goes to show you. Hey, beast. I'll tell you what Very y'all took that charging that. Okay. See gamer. If you and I both on our feet that play, he lit that place up there for two minutes. Maybe the whole season worthwhile. And now my heart is heavy because I was actually thinking about him this weekend, Bobby Bobby Carter. You know he was with for life, man, Bobby. See, bro. I don't ever forget. Hated hate that. No. Just inexplicable stuff is happening between Pedro Gomez and Bobby Carter. This That's another reason 2020 Bobby's case. I mean, just he was with any sense. He was with us that night, you know, so I have. So I still have a lot of picked by the way if you need any. I'm not kidding. I still have pictures from that night of all of us. The kids, Bobby Air, everybody It's certainly at some point, he carved out some time in the back of the sweets and tell me about his latest youth sports exploit where he always goes. A lot of he pushed a lot of winning squads, man. Bobby had two things on his mind raising his family being a great husband and then just going out in annihilating you on the youth Athletic field. Whatever the sport basketball didn't matter. Baseball tub use support to the throat when Bobby sees around. Yes story. Yeah. Ah, that Hey, Kir, Andre Mon, If you guys want to get a little coach analysis of what Roman's doing Well, I think this team is is built for him to handle the ball for one thing, And then I think he's gotten in much better shape and into a better rhythm over the last couple of weeks. I think he really turned a corner about two weeks ago, physically mentally. And then you know, playing center opens up the floor for him, too. So you know when he's the center, and he's handling the ball, it completely changes the chessboard. And with Steph playing so well, there's just unauthorized of space and a lot of slips. You know your sayings from plays where guys air comically open at the rim because of steps, gravity and the attention to him and dream on, sees all that stuff beautifully. So he's just in a room. Good groove and playing playing with great energy. And I think Raymond has been there is just brilliant. Great stuff, man. Good stuff. Start occurred. Just get Kurt gives us on these interviews, man. He tried. He gives the media what they want. God bless, right. He's great on everybody should appreciate what's going on now. Draymond sat down after the game, and he wasn't looking tol talk about his assists or seeing the floor or his I Q or Steph pulling defenders away. So guys Air open. He didn't wanna talk about that. You wanna talk about something totally different. So this is story I confess escaped my notice that the Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to trade Andre Drummond. You know, I got a lot going on in my life, Paulie. And that's the kind of thing that I just can't really burn too much energy on. You know, Andre Drummond status I got you. I mean, give the calves, you know. I mean, the cab's right now back. I mean, Yeah, I know they had LeBron from 07. Whatever it to the finals. All those years. Your Shumpert's You know you J r. Smith's all those guys. Yeah. Yeah. What do you give me for beating the Cavs in in toil? No. Ever. I know where you're going in the in the Giants having to beat the Texas Rangers in the World Series. I thought you were gonna drop a Bangles on me right there. I think for that, Yeah. Championships Come against so, so franchises you gotta take whoever's you know what I mean. They line up their best. It's not our fault, You know, I mean, very good, very high attitude put anyway. So Andre Drummond is looking to get moved by the CAF. So they sat him last night and they said they were not playing because we're gonna trade you. Yeah, Dream on, looked across the court and saw that and he got irate because he said, Wait a minute. So if a player asked to be traded Everybody in the media's all this guy's a cry, baby. He's a better problem. Yes, villain. But if the team wants to trade you, they're like, Hey, sit down and shut up. It's a dream on ever looking out for always looking for a fight. Always looking for a dust up. And not afraid to take on the powers that be. He's not green. Oh, he's really not. Here is his rant. I would like to talk about something that's really bothering me. It's the treatment of players in this league tow watch Andre Drummond before the game, sit on the sideline, then go to the back and then come out in street clothes because the team is going to trade him. Yeah, because when James Harden export trade and essentially dog did, I don't think there was no surprise or no, you know, there's no one's going to fight back there. James was dog in his last days in Houston, but he was cast rated For one to go to a different team, and everybody destroyed.

I would encourage you to think about these guys careers because my guess is if you're a sports fan, you know all of them, if not one or two of them, and you're familiar with their work, and you probably never had a bad thing to say about them. My guess is Nobody that is listening right now has ever had a bad thing to say about their reporting. Their journalism there pieces their interviews, Nothing. Would you still find it? Okay. Walk into their house. Knowing that their families are grieving and that you had worn a T shirt that said Hang them. Hang them all. It is part of what's the most corrosive part of our culture today. Is that we have distanced ourselves from the people that we view is enemies and said to hell with all of them. And thought and said, and reflected really terrible ideals towards them. We've been led there by people like Curt Schilling, or like people in cable news, or, like politicians that have stoked those divisions in flames for their own benefit. Personally, I don't take it personally. But what I think it's it's wildly disconnected from reality. Journalism, actually. His vital good journalism is absolutely crucial, and the people that do it really well should be applauded and honored, admired. Not Trashed, ripped down or threatened simply because of their profession. Prez.

"It's the mic broom head show. We've got just a few minutes left before we close it out. Sad story yesterday in a lot of people very familiar with this name in Arizona in the sports world, Pedro Gomez made while he made national news for covering very bonds in his in his run. But he also did a lot of work with the Diamondbacks and was kind of a staple in the baseball industry here, died suddenly yesterday. And I mean, suddenly, this was something that was shocking people on one of the people that knew him very well was Jeff Mon, jefe. You worked. Did you work with Paige ordered you? How Well did you know him? I fairly well I had worked with him during my time at the Diamondbacks. We stayed close and touch over the years after I left. Uh, there is, you know, you say this a lot when somebody you know passes, But this is I mean, this in the most sincere way possible. You never met a nicer, kinder man and somebody who Hey, just e Think John Feinstein, The author put it best today on Twitter. He said he never got caught up in the hole. I worked at ESPN kind of thing. Well, that's interesting is that I I didn't know him. Well, I'd met him on one or two occasions. I have a short conversation with him, but Everybody that knew him to a person. You kept hearing. What a kind hearted What a good man he was, and they did ah little piece on him yesterday about his family and going back to Cuba. And and and what? What an interesting story. Yeah, he and we talked, and I talked a number of times about his his strong emotional attachment to his home country. He and I had talked in a couple of occasions about Some of the theories behind why the regime was still in power and how hurtful it was to a lot of people who live here in the United States that are from Cuba and can't go back home. That's that's their home. Hey was it was so much more to him than just baseball or sports devoted family man. His son is ah Minor league baseball pitcher and the Red Sox organization, but just you and I'll say this, too, and I should mention this is well. One of the most creative, courageous writers I ever encountered. If he wrote something critical when he was working here. If he wrote something critical about the D backs, you could book it. He would be in the club house that night. So that whoever he criticized could confront him talked to him and Pedro would stand his ground. But he'd be there and that's rare. Mike that's really rare. You know, we we work in a very ego driven business at times and for so many people that knew him to talk about him. Being that opposite person to be is courageous as he was and as good as his job with that kind of Um, ego that it would take to be able to do that. But to not show that, in his interpersonal react about you know, in his inner personal interactions with people is pretty amazing combination never held grudges. The piece of writing that people are talking about today and I had forgotten about it. On the day of Game seven of the old one world serious, he wrote a column that basically told us all about Curt Schilling way in advance of the rest of the world finding out about he wasn't that great a guy. Uh, not that great A teammate And the story is is that when that the day that ran the day of Game seven, there were players in the clubhouse that went up and thanked Pedro for writing it. First of all you think about the timing Game seven of the world. Syriza's That's you know, that's a really difficult time to write a column like that, But that's that's who he was. He was he. Like I said, the word is courage. It's tough to write columns like that at certain times. But he had no hesitation And to do that on about the co m V P. We're talking about a player on the team. You're talking about the co m V P of that world. Syria? Yeah, and that I mean, that just takes a certain amount of guts, and he was willing to do it. He also in 1999 was the guy that basically Was the first to write that there were problems in the D'backs clubhouse with their manager Buck Showalter, that he was basically losing the veterans in the clubhouse. And that was to me. That was the first real sign that okay, we're Big League Baseball town. Now, when we got a guy writing a column like this, I had great admiration for Pedro, and it's just There's there's no way to sum up. How sad the story is. It's I I'm glad I know what last minute I asked you to come and talk about this because I knew you would know him better than anybody else. And so I appreciate you doing that. I know it's gotta it Strike you more personally than the rest of us. So thanks for doing it does And I appreciate you giving me the chance. Talk about it. Thanks, Jeff. And it's Ah. In the reason why I bring this up is because, you know, we get caught up and we do when we should. We're going to be very critical and we're gonna we're gonna have impressions of how people are based on the small snapshot in which we see them. But it was. It was a sad day for a lot of people. And I was, um, pleasantly surprised at the impact that that story made when you know it wasn't just a scroll at the bottom of the of the ESPN or on CBS before the broadcast yesterday. That it really impacted the sports world because with the person that he was, it's just a very good reminder that what we do pales in comparison to who we are. Because in the end, people are gonna remember who you are. And I hope that I hope that we all could be mindful of that. But it's a great reminder for someone who does what I do for a living that I really don't want to be known for what I do as much for who I am. And it really want makes me want to put myself.

Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert continues to impress
"Game. It doesn't count the standings. But, boy Oh, boy, I watched Friday night the Inter squad on TV, Luis Robert Too long home runs. This guy looks like a monster. It reminds me of Felipe Alou is managing the Expos back in the I want to stay in the mid nineties, and somebody asked him about this young prospect named Vladimir Guerrero. And he had not played in the big leagues yet, and Felicia's answer Wass. When you just look at him, you think superstar and that's almost the same thing you get. When you look at Louie's Robert because time during spring training, you just look at him and he just looks. Like he's going to fill that part of a superstar he has. There's just a GN it factor. And then you watch him play and it solidifies every year. Everything you think about the guy and it's almost reminiscent of like I said what Philippe has said about a young unknown Vladimir Guerrero at the time when he was coming on the market. The White Sox and mean they didn't get him cheaply. It was think $26 million for a guy you don't know if he's going to turn out, but you didn't hear Yankees Dodgers. Cubs, red socks like the ones that have the highest payrolls. Why was that? I know the socks have done a magnificent job getting Cuban players going all way back to Minnie Minoso. Tha Jose of Bray you they've got Moncada. But why were some of the heavyweights not chasing this guy? You know what I wish I had a specific answer for you. I don't have one. But I will say what? You just reiterate what you just said, and amplify on it. The attacks have been a really good job of scouting the Cuban players. Now Moncada was signed by the Red Sox and came in the trade from from Michael Kopeck. But with Michael Kopeck, I should say For sale, but it's just one of those things where the White Sox I think maybe they do their homework better than anyone else. And that's why they were able to get a guy like Louise Robert, because He just looks like the really, really feel He does just looking at him, and then you see him in the box, but it's like, Oh, my God. How good can this guy be? Um You're right. It wasn't cheap. But it wasn't like out of this world money either. And, ah, kudos to the White Sox Foreign office and they're scouting. You know, this is the work of scouts. Thes air, not analytics driven. Data. You define a guy who has never left the island of Cuba, where you don't have a lot of information. This is scouting. And obviously you look, I'm a big proponent of scouting, and I'm a It's frustrating to see how it's being minimalized and Almost extinguished in some places, but there is still a place for scouting. And here's a prime example. We're talking to Pedro Gomez from ESPN. When you look at a team

S because of the risk of Kobe 19. ESPN, Pedro Gomez says this could lead to some Blue Jays players opting out of the 60 games. I think that's absolutely something that the Blue Jays have to be thinking about that they may have players say, Uh, look, I'm not gonna go it all. I may not. I may not feel comfortable doing that. So I would think you may look. The blue Djinn are mostly young roster. Those are the type of players that probably will not opt out. But it wouldn't surprise me. One or two of the older guys say. I'm not doing that. It's just not
