"To limp into opening day. Of a lot of work, me and the rest of the staff and just be like, hey, we're all here together now. Have a baseball nap? Do you have a baseball nap on opening day? Are you a baseball napper? No. I am a big baseball napper. Yeah, we both enjoy the baseball nap. I don't know whether opening day, I will nap just because, hey, it's opening day, and we haven't had real baseball in a while. So I don't know if I'll be too wired to nap or it'll just be an assault on the senses. I enjoy a nap later in the season when it just becomes part of the cadence of day in and day out. There's baseball. It's not quite as adrenaline inducing on a daily basis. It's just it bathes you. It washes over you and perhaps you fall asleep. But if you have a baseball bat but opening day, I support that, I would be great. Yeah, normally this is how it progresses, right? So we get through that crazy month. We do all of this work to get ready for the season and do all of our preview content and then on opening day, we do the big mega chat that everybody likes. We do that opening day mega chat where we chat all day. And then when the second set of games start, right? So the chat is humming our predictions are up. The positional power rankings they're wrapped bent they're done. You know, everybody knows who all the guys are and where they rank. Second set of games starts, and I nap. It is a deep, deep sleep. And it feels so good. And then I wake up for the evening games. It's like, you know, it's rejuvenating. I have that baseball sound. I get to calibrate how loud the ad breaks on MLB TV are gonna be. You know, that's a useful calibration. Once we get to find out if we have more baseball Zane. Oh yeah, I hope so. So march 30th set your calendars, get your excuses ready for school and work. A little sick that day. Or the weather? Yeah. I actually got called out on that once for skipping a college class so I could watch the first game of the season. I thought it's college. Who cares? Who's going to keep track of my absences here? And the professor actually brought attention to the fact that I wasn't there. I forget whether I admitted that I was watching baseball or came up with some other excuse, but yeah, I didn't quite as cleanly get away with it as I thought I would. So a couple little baseball exceptionalism things. I don't want to beat this segment into the ground. Some of you are probably already thinking too late. But we keep getting great submissions for this and it seems like some people are enjoying it. And I think I've actually learned a couple things over the course of soliciting the suggestions for ways that baseball is either unique or unusual and distinct from other sports. And one is that I think you can make a pretty good case that baseball is unusually unusual. Now I'm saying that from sort of a biased parochial perspective as someone who appreciates baseball the most and knows the most about baseball and as I've said, I'm sure you could conjure similarly long lists about every sport or many sports if you knew more about them and were so inclined. But there are a lot of things that make spaceball strange and weird and I think it's fun to celebrate those. And secondarily, I think what I've learned is that it's getting a little less so. Given some of the ways that the sport has changed and some of the sort of unintentional changes and some of the upcoming changes, I think baseball is slightly conforming at least and getting a little bit more homogenized. And again, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, I think, in some cases, it's a necessary evolution, but it's sort of bittersweet because I think a lot of people lament that just like the rough edges of baseball are perhaps getting sanded down, like some of the weird quaint quirky stuff that we are attached to because it's been a picture of the sport is maybe falling by the wayside, but I think part of that is maybe just necessary growth or having to adapt to a changing media environment and increased competition and everything. So for instance, Aaron wrote in and maybe we've touched on some of these. But the unwritten rules, for instance, it seems like maybe baseball has more of them in an emphasis on them to a greater extent than other sports. But that's becoming reduced, right? And I think on the whole, that's probably good. We're not people for the most part who really cherish most of the unwritten rules. I would say or think that's a big part of our enjoyment of the sport. And then Aaron also pointed out that the differences between leagues and the fact that there used to be real differences in different rules and different teams playing each other and different umpiring crews and all sorts of real steady differences that now have almost entirely evaporated so the leagues are essentially the same except in name and maybe we're heading for a re christening or a realignment of some sort and again that doesn't bother me so much, but it's another example maybe of baseball becoming less of an outlier and more like some other sports. So I think Patrick wrote in also about the fraternization rule, the rule against fraternization, which he notes his technically being broken every time kids line up for autographs or a first baseman greets a runner at first or prince Fielder steals some nachos from a fan or whatever all of these things you could argue were technically illegal, but no one cares about that anymore. And we don't care that they don't care. We wouldn't really want them to care. It's a good thing they don't care. But it's maybe odd that that's even still on the books. So those are my big picture takeaways from this series so far. Yeah, I agree with those. I agree with them. Yes. So the most recent ones we got Sean says that our stat sparkler, remember it wasn't a step blast. It was a stat sparkler about Jeff Kent, made me think of one of the baseballs unique things double and triple plays if we accept that the out ticking down is baseball's analog to a clock in other sports. It's certainly different in the time sports. You can't make the clock run at double or triple time while the other team is trying to score, but you can take away multiple chunks of opportunity in baseball. Does this count? So is that it's, again, kind of an addendum to the, there's no clock, is that the outs are kind of the currency and you can eliminate multiple outs from the board in the same play

"Well, look, a couple of things. One is, you know, we talked in the broadcast last night that this is a padre team if it doesn't hit high velocity. There were 28 out of 30 teams in batting average fastballs, 97 and above. And they saw a lot city last night. On the protection thing, I just, I guess I start with, I don't really buy it. Because I think you're forgetting it important thing. And that is the guy that hits in front of him is an he's supposed to be protecting once and they had no interest in pitch. And that's dangerous. If you were to do it the way you're saying it because a bell that it's dangerous to walk Soto and Machado ahead of bell. And it's why I think Manny's got to keep it in the zone. I think one crucial thing. I understand he's got to keep it in the zone, but I still would say, I mean, again, for all the studies in protection, guys may contemplate who's on deck. You know, it's like, I remember looking at when prince Fielder left the brewers and you looked at in 20, I want to say it was 2012, his first year with the tigers. But in 2012, Ryan Braun got the same amount of strikes in the same amount of fastballs, like nothing changed without prince Fielder hitting behind him. I mean, we can go round and round. What ends up happening is that because pitcher say they contemplate who's hitting behind him, then that ends the argument, but there's nothing that is indicated that a player has actively thrived any type of real correlation that

"Yeah, and that was I didn't think anyone matched up with their three man rotation. Now you could go 5 deep because Adrian house is pretty darn good too, but Lauer's been tremendous. He was really good last year too, but he got a little bit overlooked with those front three guys. So, and you still got the two great relief guys. So you could make a case now. I've said before, maybe if you look at the 5 best pictures on any team, you might say the brewers have the best collection of 5 pitchers. But now you could go deeper than that, perhaps, and go 6 or even 7. Give me, give me a team that's got 7 pictures better than the 7 best brewer pitchers. Not many, if any. All right, so the big story over the weekend was that Miguel Cabrera got career hit number 3000, what's his legacy, Tim? You're better than anybody at couching what a player is meant at carousel landscape a baseball history. Well, he's obviously one of the greatest hitters that we've ever seen. He's certainly one of the top ten right handed hitters of all time. And he's just a buck show aller likes to say it's not just some big hairy guy who hits the ball a long way. He is a great hitter and always has been. 7 players have 500 homers, 3000 hits. He has the highest batting average three ten of any of those 7 players. I told you this story buster, I did a game in Detroit one night and the Tiger and the Yankees shifted on Cabrera. And left second base wide open. And he hit a ground ball through that hole. And he laughed all the way to first base as he's looking to the dugout. All those to say, you guys really don't think you could shift and make it work against me. Do you think I can hit a ground ball over there whenever I want? He can. Same season buster, we had another game, I swear, the team, the Yankees weren't going to pitch to him. And they were going to pitch to him just they weren't going to intentionally walk. So he intentionally got behind O two in the count swung at two pitches, fouled them off out of the strike zone just to make the Yankees stink. All right, it's O2 now. We can get them out, maybe. And the next pitchy rifle to right center for a double. I mean, that's who Miguel Cabrera is, and I told you the story. Jim leyland told me in spring train. Jim Leland not easily impressed. 5 straight pitches in spring training just messing around. Cabrera went left field line, left center, dead center, right center, then hit a home run right down the right field line on 5 straight pitches. Leo would say, look, nobody can do that. And Max Scherzer looked at me once and said, he said, he said, Miguel Cabrera is the greatest hitter ever to walk the earth. I think that covers just about everything. Yeah, during one batting practice session that I saw right after prince Fielder joined the tigers. It was in spring training. He was doing what he does, which is to drive the ball to right center field. He's hitting it over the fence. And prince field had just looked at him and was like, how do you do what you do? I mean, here's one of his peers, an MVP, you know, a perennial all star contender. And he is just in wonder of what Miguel Cabrera could do. I love the fact that, you know, Joey Votto tweeted out on Sunday, you know, classic Cabrera hit number 3000 to right field because you and I both remember how in 2003, Cabrera really announced his presence on the world baseball stage in that World Series against the Yankees when Roger Clemens knocked him down with a high insight fastball and then tried to beat him on the outside corner with another fastball in Cabrera knocked it over the right field wall. You know, extraordinary for any hitter facing Roger Clemens, but for a rookie to do that, that distinguished him and right away, you know, told us that special he was going to be. Tim, I never even really thought of this question until the last week and, you know, you start to examine numbers, we talked a lot about 300 game winners. I still think Justin Verlander might have a chance to get to 300 wins. He's a long way away. But I never really considered the question that Miguel Cabrera might be the last guy to get 3000 hits in the history of baseball. When you think about it, you know, we talk so much last night about Bryce Harper and his ten years in the big leagues. He's been a great player. He's been playing all the time. He's got 1274 hits. He's not close to getting 3000 hits. Is Miguel Cabrera to be the last guy to do that? Well, he's going to be the last guy for a long time. I'm not going to say the last guy forever, but look at, look at how we play the game today, buster. The value of the hit is no longer there. We're really only interested in hit the ball out of the ballpark. So somebody getting 200 hits a year, I mean, it's a great thing, but it's not the biggest thing like it used to be. Everyone's trying to draw a walk. Everyone's trying to work a deep count. We're getting healthy scratches too, where guys aren't playing a 162 games. That's how you.

"Are in this era where you have a very true outcomes type ball and you have players who have been conditioned to swing for the fences by the juice ball and buy analytics that say, hey, home runs are good. You should try to hit the ball in the air. That makes some sense. And so we've got a lot of homers. We just don't have a lot of hits at this point. A lot of walks, but not a lot of singles and now fewer homers, more of those flies are turning into outs and so you just wonder whether well in the absence of some other change, unless you're going to do something with pitcher usage or where the mound is or whatever to curtail the velocity or just the unhittable stuff the pitchers are throwing these days well. If you take away the juiced ball, long term, I guess you could say, well, batters will be incentivized to aim for contact more often and they will stop swinging for the fences as much and they'll try to put the ball in play and I guess if you take the shift away then maybe that could be a bit more advantageous possibly but right now if all you've done is deaden the ball a bit, then you are taking away the one weapon that hitters really had. And so we might end up with a pretty stagnant offensive profile this season. Again, we'll see inevitably the numbers will pick up as the weather gets warmer, but even with sticky stuff banned and to some extent being enforced at least, we're still seeing not the offensive profile that you would probably choose super low batting averages and now not a lot of slug either and less scoring. And I think on the whole fence like scoring and they tend to tune in and go to games more often when scores are higher at least some studies have suggested. So worrisome in the short term, maybe in the long term, there will be an adjustment, but I just, I don't know if you can adjust to the average fastball being 94 and then sweepers on top of that. So you take away the one thing that was counteracting that. It's risky business and maybe it's a bit disturbing that MLB looked at the way offense was working and said, what we should do is make things harder for the hitters. Right. Well, and I think part of what is frustrating here is that, you know, when you look at what they are trying to do with rule changes, like we have remarked that they're testing in the minor so many things at once in some cases. And so it's like, what is actually going to be meaningful to shifting the balance between hitters and pictures? And how are these things interacting with one another? And I feel like we don't always have a great sense of that. And then operating in the background of all of that stuff is going to be this just huge unknown variable, which is the baseball. And so it seems like this is a place where if what you're trying to do is test some stuff with the aim of improving piece of play and putting more balls in play and making the game sort of more dynamic and less reliant on the three true outcomes, like you especially in that instance seem to be able to say very clearly like here is the ball and here's what it's going to do most often and we're not in that spot. And it's very strange. Yep. All right, to end just a few rapid fire follow-ups here. We talked about beef boys on our previous episode on an email show, what one has to do or be like to qualify as a beef boy. We talked a lot about yandy Diaz in the discussion because he is a beefy boy, but he doesn't hit for a lot of power and he hits a ton of grounders. And we said his name many times, we said beef many times we talked about his grounders many times, but as Ashton moss pointed out on Twitter, we did not make the obvious connection and call him ground beef. It's kind of the perfect nickname for him. Can we make this a thing? Yeah. Yes. Ground beef? I mean, it's so much better than nutting. Yeah. Yeah. I like both. But yeah, yandy Diaz, we're dubbing him ground beef for now. And we got a couple of follow-up questions can pictures be beef voice? Would you like to rule on that? Yeah. Oh yeah. Totally. I think they can be beef boys. Yep, yeah. Winston. He's a beefy boy. Yeah. No problem with that. We also got a question about whether vegetarians could be beef boys, for instance, prince Fielder, who was a vegetarian at least for part of his career, can he be a beef boy? And what I pointed out is that cows are herbivores, and they are literally beef. So I think absolutely if vegetarian can be a beef boy. Yeah, I mean, I know that there is a particular mammalian context for beef, but it can be a more generic term to refer to one's flesh. You know, we talk about moist as a bad word, but we maybe don't talk about flesh as like kind of a Nicki. You know, I don't know, here I am. Complaining about nutting and then I'm introducing that idea. So I think so. I do not I do not think that it requires it does not indicate the consumption of a particular kind of food in order to achieve one's imposing stature, right? It is not as if the beef boys are inherently consumers of beef, I wouldn't dare speculate. Don't know whether any of the so called beef boys are vegetarian, maybe some of them are pescetarians. We don't know, but I don't think that it implies anything about one's particular consumption habits, nor is it specific to cows. It is just about the flesh. Yeah, I guess this goes against the you are what you eat, principle, but it's not about what you put into your body. It's about your body, or it's about the state of mind, as I think you said on that episode. So yeah, you don't have to eat beat necessarily. But another follow-up, we talked about the over the ear headphones gesture coming to represent replay review and whether that would continue to represent replay review now that I'm sorry, not really using over the ear headphones for that process anymore. And whether this would linger and whether people would eventually forget what it originally signified or why that became the signifier. Well, kazuto yamazaki, listener, informed me that in NPP and he sent me a video of this, which I will link on the show page, but managers there to signal replay reviews. They basically draw a box in the air to symbolize the screen seemingly. So yeah, they just kind of like draw a square sort of a rectangle kind of thing. Sort of sloppy. It ends up being kind of circular in practice. But basically they draw a screen in the air with their fingers. And that is a replay review. So if managers and MLB are looking for a new signal to adapt for that now that we're no longer using over the ear fed headphones, don't know that we need to make that change, but if you're looking for a substitute managers, there is already one in NPV. So we could just borrow that from them, I think. I guess we could. I mean, again, I think the most important thing is that we understand what it is. What it is meant to communicate. And so I think that it is not so much that the headphones signal might always be meaningful and sort of interpretable by fans, but that is that symbol is understood now. That action is understood now. And in the future, maybe they have to do a different thing, maybe they have to do a square. Maybe they will kind of point to their temples to be like, you know, beam it into my brain with your brain rates. Might end up being the thing. But I think that as long as there are instances, as we said of over ear headphones out in the world, the fact that the specific equipment has changed within the context of the game, it doesn't lose any meaning. And just changing it to change it might be more confusing. Right, yeah. And then I also learned it was suggested that Jackie Robinson might have been a candidate for our stinky draft, not because he broke the color barrier, but because of another rule that he might have inspired. So this is something I was first exposed to. This past week on Jackie Robinson day, but Jackie apparently he would sometimes or at least on opening day 1955 he did break up a double play by letting the ball hit him. So he was on second base, another Dodger was on first, a grandeur was hit to short. He wet the ball hit him, which, of course, ruled him out, but prevented.

"George Thorogood going to be rocking the U. S cellular connection stage tonight at 10 o'clock So you still have time to get here It is 8 37 here at the moment. So you have more than enough time to make it in to see George Thorogood right now on the main stage, Chris Stapleton and Sheryl Crow. They are out there. That's the American family Insurance amphitheater. Welcome back in Matt, Paulie hanging out with you Live and summer fest. It is Brewer's weekly here on Wtmj. We had a poll question up. The poll is now closed. I had to close a little too early. Sorry, but We got. We got a handful of votes that here 63 votes over the hour or so that it was open. I did the most exciting way to win a baseball game, and the four answers were a walk off Grand Slam. A walk off home run, robbed by an outfitter, three bases loaded strikeouts or a game ending play. When I went into it, I wanted you to, uh, fielding ones and two at the plate and end up being three in the field one at the plate with the Grand Slam. I think if I had to do it over again, I'd get rid of maybe the game ending trip play, and I would have replaced that with like an inside the park home run on a walk off, which could be more exciting potentially than a walk off Grand Slam. So if I ever do this poll question again will make that tweak. But for now, this is it. Greg Hill. What? I don't know if you did vote in the poll, but if you did what answer what have you gone with? So I did, And I kind of contemplated right? And I had this discussion with you off the air, three bases loaded strikeouts. We've seen that before. A few times this season, especially recently, So I'm surprised that one didn't get as many votes, but I picked The walk off home run robbed by an outfielder defense. That's my vote. All right. That's this is a big Lorenzo Cain moment where he brings one back. That's what you would have gone there and forgive me. If I'm getting this wrong. You could clarify this for me. Didn't Eduardo Escobar Rob a game winning home run for us when before he was traded to the Brewers. Do I have that correct? Oh, I don't know. Okay. I have, like very like I have a, um, memory of someone robbing a brewer. I can't remember who it is you out, Look it up, but Avi Garcia has had one this season. Not a It wasn't a game winning run. But it was more of a retired way Junior to save a game tying run. It was in the fifth inning, but give me home run robbery all day. Okay. I'm trying to think back to the games against the Diamondbacks this year. The only the only thing that really sticks out to me about the games against the Diamondbacks. Remember, they were on that long, long, long losing streak. And you knew that Something might and so no, I think I don't think you have that right, Greg, because they're only um Their only win was a 51 win, and that ended their 17 game losing skid. Yeah, I'm going to try to find it because there was certainly while I was there. I was like, Oh, it's it's over, and then they plucked it out of this guy. Okay? I don't know. I don't know what you're thinking of the top of your head. Um, I was a little bit so I'll give the results here of the pole. I was a little surprised that game ending Trump play came in last place easily last place with under 5% of the vote. I thought it would get a little bit more than that, because quite honestly, that would be the rarest of the rare of the All these are very rare events, but the game ending triple play. Triple plays are so rare in their own right. I mean, a normal season, maybe again 234 across major league baseball at the most. It seems like so I'm surprised game ending triple play easily. Was the was in last place that we had a two way tie for second or third, however, you want to look at it. The walk off home run being robbed by an outfitter and the three bases loaded strikeouts. And then, as people continued to just relive the Vogel back, pinch it walk off Grand Slam. It is the runaway winner. At close to 70% of the vote on the most exciting way to to win a baseball game. I thought this was going to be a little bit closer. Clearly I was wrong. If I would have gotten rid of game ending to play and put inside the park home run and walk off inside the Parker. Maybe that would have changed things up. Maybe that would have gone a few more votes. If I would have left the poll open for a little bit longer. Maybe that would have changed things up. There's a lot of things we could redo, but You're not supposed to regret things in life. I got it. 55. Yes, it was certified brewers killer Gregory Polanco, and it was Eduardo Escobar, who hit The long ball to right field and he robbed it in the ninth, sending the game into extra innings. Yes, Palanka was playing really deep because that thing was hit hard. And if he would not have been playing as deep that he would have never been able to get to it just because of the exit velocity, But he was playing way deep and he went and brought that one back. Yes, that was Gregory Polanco, That might be as highlight of the year It's been. It has not been a good season. For him offensively or defensively. He's been getting booed a lot by pirates fans. The 17 people who attend pirates home games have been booing Gregory Palanka, Let's go to the phones. 85561616 20 the accident, mortgage talk and text line. Steve is in West Dallas. Hey, Steve, you're on wtmj. Hey, how you guys doing? Good. Thank you. So I missed the end of this game. I had to work at five o'clock, and when I left was 5 to 1 and work as a front desk clerk and About 10 or 15. Minutes after I got there heard a bunch of screaming up and up and the upstairs I thought somebody got hurt, and it turned out turn W won the game, but it reminded me a lot of 1987 Easter Sunday game. That my daughter Crystal and I were at, um Remember, Rob, you're hitting hitting home runs. I think he tied it up. And then they'll swing hit one to win the game, and we're we're crystal Crystal was up on my shoulder. She was eight years old at the time. She's 42 now. Um, she was up on my shoulders so she can see where that happens to people who were standing on the seat. And when the swing hit the home run were jumping up and down on the seat. We cracked, We actually cracked the seats. Dr seat. But that was an excellent excellent Most excellent family had its awesome Christian look, that was pretty cool. Very good. Appreciate it, Steve. Thanks for calling. You know, you think about some of the famous walk offs? Obviously Easter Sunday 1987. That's a big one. I still think the greatest walk off in the history of the organization is the Ryan Braun Grand Slam in 2000 and eight that was in what the 10th inning and They needed that win to get into the postseason. That's that. That's one of the biggest hits in the history of the organization. I think that is the greatest walk off. You had Bill Hall against the Mets back in 2000 and six That was the mother's Day. Once every year. On Mother's Day, we get to relive that over and over there, there's a few. There's the prince fielder. One not that had real significance, but that was that great. Celebration..

"Of twenty-one seasons. He hit a career three ten he ranked sixth all-time in hits with three thousand. Four hundred and sixty five. He's a fourteen time all star and he received mvp votes in twelve different seasons however never winning a regular season mvp. He was an all star game mvp. He was a world series mvp. He was rookie of the year. He obviously won those five rings in new york five time gold glover five time silver slugger but again hidden a career. Three ten in twenty years. All with the new york yankees. He had two hundred and sixty home runs. One thousand three hundred eleven. Rbi so certainly deserving of getting into the hall of fame and he was joined by larry walker and a few interesting tidbits on larry walker which kind of fits the moult. If you know or remember watching larry walker but prior to walker the rockies had never had a single hall of famer play game for their franchise so not even like be a rocky and in the hall of fame not even go year. Twenty jeeter goes from the yankees and then place half a season for the rockies. They they didn't have a hall of famer. Play a game for the franchise. They were the only major league baseball team who could make that claim and of course that is no longer the case due to walker getting in walker also became the second canadian in cooperstown. Joining only fergie jenkins as the only other canadian walker said during his speech quote. Thank you canada. I share this honour with every canadian. And i hope that all of us canadian kids out there that have dreams of playing in the big leagues seem here. Today gives you another reason to go after those dreams and quotes and continuing around larry walker if you guys remember when he got the call that he was going into the hall of fame. He was wearing this pretty outrageous. Spongebob squarepants shirt. Spongebob squarepants is on the left chest front and on the right chest front. It says eight no ordinary sponge. Well this shirt now has a place in cooperstown it's actually displayed next to an umpire's mask and old jersey and it is right there in the hallway at let's see in cooperstown so he then on his suit while he was giving his speech worry. Spongebob squarepants pin on his jacket. So he continued to show his love for spongebob squarepants. And certainly the shirt. That's in the hall of fame is probably one of the more outrageous items artifacts there in cooperstown but larry walker. He had a great career of course six years in montreal to start out his career where he hit two eighty one with ninety nine home runs. Three hundred and eighty four. Rb is but then really took off for colorado spending ten years with the rockies hitting three thirty four for the rockies with two fifty eight two hundred and fifty eight home runs eight hundred and forty eight. rbi's and then rounding out his career with two years and saint louis where he hit two eighty six with twenty six home runs and seventy nine rbi so a career three thirteen hitter. Three hundred eighty three home runs. One thousand three hundred and eleven. Rbi's for larry walker as to the all time greats were finally recognised and enshrined in cooperstown here on this past wednesday so now transitioning to the twenty twenty one class. Or excuse me. Nobody was voted in in two thousand twenty one so the twenty twenty two class who is going to get in who could potentially make it. Well there's quite a bit of new covers on the on the ballot this year. A lot of them are going to be one indict. And these are names that you would recognize such as marlon byrd. Carl crawford ryan howard. Tim linda justin moreno prince fielder joe nathan jonathan. Paypal bon peavy. Aj presents ski on your e bay. Have ryan vogel song. All of these guys are on the ballot. But i don't think any of them ultimately get to that five percent mark to remain on the ballot moving forward now. We do have some other guys who are kind of hanging around to who got enough votes last year..

That was what i was going to get into. It's one of these numbers here. But i mean what a been did max or performance. It is so much fun to see those happen and is he was on all cylinders yesterday. You know it's interesting. When i was around the dodgers over the weekend i asked abe robertson sunday about the impact trae turner and he talked about how turner which it sounds funny because the dodgers are team of so much accomplishment in a we know what a great competitor justin turner is muggy beds clayton kershaw and he talked about the edge that trade turner brings in. Max scherzer does the same. I think on the pitching side. So these guys in a phenomenal injection for this team has come down the stretch. It'll be interesting to see if they can actually overtake the giants all right. Let's play the numbers game. Number three. to number three is twenty seven so speak hampshire's her. Yesterday was his twenty seven th career game with at least ten strikeouts in no walks. And i've talked about this before. We see a lot of ten strikeout game. But when you're able to do that and also not walk anybody to me that is among the elite performances and his twenty seventh game with at least ten strikeouts no walks tied curt schilling for the second. Most we have ever seen in mlb history. The only pitcher with more is randy. Johnson with thirty six and max has been climbing this close obviously his entire career but it's incredible to see him still doing these things and it was his twentieth career game with at least twenty five swings misses and i love this because again it's another signature of dominance right getting all of those west and that seven wargames with twenty five mrs than anyone else in the pitch tracking era which does conveniently begin when scherzer's career began in two thousand eight and to the point about the cy young award i mean is two point. Two eight the ira now leads the majors. Just add a walker bueller. And i mean i just think it would be incredible to see as we know the only cy young winner to change teams was rick sutcliffe in nineteen eighty four when he won with the cubs and a fourth. Cy young for max scherzer would be in that clemens. Randy johnson steve carlton. Greg maddux territory. Which i think he belongs in regardless of whether he wins it number two number two is thirty six so i think that i've updated this wander franco oles with you now for about two weeks and i keep expecting okay by the time we talk next. It's going to be over and it still isn't so he's now reached base and thirty six consecutive games which is tied with nineteen fifty one fifty two mickey mantle for the long the second longest streak by any player age twenty or younger the next week where he's going towards is frank robinson in nineteen fifty sixty reach base in forty three consecutive games. And of course you know. Maybe it's time to look beyond age so just to set our standards where they should be. The overall record is almost twice that frank robinson record. So it's nineteen forty. Nine ted williams in eighty four consecutive games. Not to say that wander can't get there you can't get there this year but maybe he'd get there by sometime next season but silla ways to go but he had a four hit game. Yesterday was the youngest player with a four game since one soto in twenty team when he was nineteen years old. And that's the company that he's finding himself in already in terms of really really great editors number one number one is forty so the quite the first sending for the blue jays yesterday fraught like all of those one o'clock games got up to a really fast start longer wander. Franco extended history and then Mark semi and blood junior wendy for the blue jays so that was glad boarding at home run of the season in his one hundred thirty fifth game of the season so the only players aged twenty two younger with more homers in their first hundred thirty five games of the season where eddie mathews in nineteen fifty. Three joe dimaggio in nineteen thirty. Seven and johnny bench in nineteen seventy. So if you're only trailing those guys you're on a really great list and of course bodmer guerrero senior also had some forty home season so they are now the second father son combo the each hit forty homers in season along with seattle and prince fielder speaking of vladimir junior speaking of the blue jays. I think they got a real shot. Sarah i know is i said. It's him there three games behind the red sox to the second wildcard three and a half games yankees for the first wildcard but they demean our the team that no american league club wants to see right. Now what do you think. Absolutely i mean you know this offense has been carrying them all year really great yesterday and he's been good for them throughout the season and i just think it's really hard to count out a team with an offense as electric as that. I mean i think that that can really help them down the stretch especially facing some of the worst teams you can kind of just legend them and you can win those game to regardless of what your bullpen is doing so especially with how the red sox have looked lately. I know some of that is due to some of the guys who are out with kobe. But i mean that game yesterday. I assume you talked about that with him. That was quite the crazy game and not a game that the red sox should be losing and they continue to lose games like that. The yankees haven't looked as good as they did two or three weeks ago. I don't see why the blue jays can't sneak in and i really wanna see blood. Junior playoffs again now tended endorses is strongly. I thought he might When i said to him about i thought the most the news developed over the last seventy two hours. Most under reported was the injury to elisa To me because when you look at the roster and his importance to that bullpen with britain out with a ralph chapman. Being something of a mess right now. That's a that's a big blow for this team What do you think. I completely agree with you. I mean he's been so good for them. It's so interesting to see. You know the way that his yankees career has gone. I mean initially with getting a couple of spots starts here in there almost opener. Whatever else and he has found his role in the bullpen that season he's been really good for them and he was the pitcher who went aroldis chapman struggling all the yankees fans want him to be the closer an even if maybe that wasn't the exact role for him. I think that does tell you just how important he has been there. So i i completely agree. When i saw that i started to doubt the yankees again. It's amazing just even if you think of the rollercoaster of oh. The yankees are in the playoffs. No question oh no. They're not gonna make it back and forth. It feels like even since that great run they had in july. It's been all up and down yet again then. That definitely felt like down point. I mentioned that. I talked to alex. Rodriguez mattress gershon before the game on sunday and said look to me. If you were to rank the importance of of the players on the yankees roster geared colby number one number two aaron judge and for me the why is it goes number three because the importance he had an that bullpen You could make the case you know stanton turns it is important scary. Sanchez obviously resurgent as a catcher but lazaga such a pivotal role in that group. Absolutely and i mean..

"With Jeff leveling momentarily. The National League loses five to to the bruise back in action in Cincinnati on Friday night. There is 3 60 sponsored by century foods and injuries. Solar and electric aforementioned Mr Leverett joins us Live on brewers 3 60. Good morning, sir. Hey, Good morning, everybody. So let's come down on the big issue from last night. Where do you What side do you take when it comes to as my wife calls them costumes. The rest of us. Call them uniforms. What did you think of the garbage supported by the American and national leagues last night at the All Star game? Um, I thought that they left some room for improvement. Um, I'll just leave it at that. I think I think that I really like the All Star Games where the teams where their home uniforms where their their home or willed or whatever it is, they should just be wearing there. Their team's uniforms. Um Rhoda Rhoda home jerseys. That's where I stand on it. Jeff Poor Corbyn Burns Man, Old man He got taken deep last night by Vladimir Guerrero Jr 468 ft A Moonshot. It's got me wondering what's the deepest home run you've ever seen hitting the game? Uh, that's a great question. I mean, the 4 50 that Jace Peterson hit the other day was pretty good. I think Christian Yelich might have hit the furthest one I've ever seen. A couple of years ago, it went up into the third deck. American family feel that might be the farthest one that I've ever seen. Um, Yeah, I mean, there's some Moonshots, but, hey, it's thin air. That's all I got. There you go. That's a good excuse will take it then Aaron Vlad Guerrero Jr. No shame and giving up a hefty winter that dude No, no doubt about. I love the picture that that Major league baseball tweeted out earlier in the day. With young Vladimir Junior Flagman Guerrero Jr with his dad and an All Star game when an explosion looked like a little blood, but from hook and he's there, just standing there with his dad, and, uh and they said, this kid just hit a home run in the All Star game, And I mean, it's almost like a mini prince fielder to the dude mashes. It's okay if you're going to give up a bomb. Give it up to that guy. Yeah, no doubt about it, Jeff Leveling with us here on WTMJ. Jeff Gene's been talking throughout the morning about how just cool it is to have such good rep. Presentation at the All Star game from the Brewers, because there was a time when you would have to get like I I think there was a time where you just it was mandatory. You got one guy to go just because, But how nice was it to see the Brewers? Even though a couple guys didn't play so well represented last night in Colorado, I thought it was great. And it's three straight years. Now that the Brewers that five guys be asked to go to the All Star game. That means the club is winning a lot. That means the club has a lot of excitement behind it. And it's no coincidence that that there's a potential for fourth consecutive year that the Brewers might go to the playoffs. There's still a lot of time left, but the Brewers are very well represented. Yesterday, Freddy Peralta looked awesome, striking out the side with some pretty quality guys that he punched out. Of course, Corbyn Burns gave up the big home run to Vladimir Guru or junior, but at the same time it was. It was really fun. And Omar got to catch. Um It's great to see all these guys, you know, long gone in the days where John Jaha is your only All Star representative. So It's great to see it means that things are going really well in the Brewers organization. No way Did you just drop a John Jaha? That's that's awesome. You know what those uniforms that they wore for that home Run Derby. I think it was 1999 at Fenway very similar to the uniforms that they wore last night. You know your fashion to Jeff Leveraging our guest numbers. 3 60 wtmj. We've got a second half of the season. It's going to start with the Reds in Cincinnati, a team that took three of four from the Brewers at the end of the first half. Obviously, the need certainly not pitching for the Brewers. There's plenty event decent to great arms, certainly in the starting rotation, the trouble seems to consistently be at the dish. But we really don't know what this team is going to look like that. All the bodies are back, including Kolten Wong and Lorenzo Cain. Yeah, Those guys are probably going to be back pretty soon to Kolten. Wong might be back the first day of the All Star break, which is on Friday. Um and then Lorenzo might be another week. After that, we'll see. He's done pretty well in Nashville in terms of just staying on the field and being healthy and testing out the bad during that he's Been dealing with the last month and for Colton has been dealing with that oblique injury for awhile, came back for one day and then had to go back on the injured list. So hopefully the Brewers offense can get back to it. Jace Peterson played really well instead of Kolten Wong, but maybe maybe in the line up a little bit too much. Um, so you've got to have a little bit arrest for a guy like him. Maybe he can have some at bats at first base. But having Lorenzo defensively helps a lot, too. So we'll see what happens with the Brewers. There's a lot of time left and some moving and shaking. You know that with David Stern's and Matt Arnold. So you get a night off tonight. I don't know how big of a basketball fan you are. But in normal times, you know the Bucks wouldn't even be playing now, much less being in the finals, and it wouldn't be the Major League Baseball All Star break. You'd probably be on the road doing baseball doing your job. You can watch the game today. Oh, for sure. Yeah, Bucks tonight. Going to even the series up. That's my call that Well, maybe we can get your courtside with me and Gene will chug some beers with Bakhtiari. You know, I'll send you a video of it all right, from my living room. Love it chugging beers of the alien outside Buck Bradley's That's as close as I get to the front row. Take care of Jeff. Be good. You got to talk to you guys next week. 19 at WTMJ analysis,.

"Melby dot com and last night the official researcher all ravitch in perez and marley. Rivera myself on the derby called sarah. What was that like last night. Oh my gosh. I mean i love the derby so much. I'm sure we've talked about this every single year. But i think it's my second favorite day although the my birthday which is well established that i am a big fan of and it did not disappoint. I mean the energy. There was so exciting. And certainly being back in a ballpark and all of that it was it was amazing. It is such a fun event. You know and pass derby's There have been tremendous finishes into the one. I always think of course is to be todd frazier in coming back You know we had Pete alonso and vladi two thousand nineteen going at it but somehow last night despite the fact that we didn't have that kind of drama as much with guys coming back and and Putting everything on. Because pete dominated so much. It's still felt like one of those events. Where i'm at the point where i'm like today. I can't wait to see the tv ratings. What do you think. Absolutely i mean i. Just think pete alonso owns the derby. I think i know can griffey. Junior won three. We'll get to that. But he has just put together this run of momentum and showing how much she loves this event and i really think that gets people to keep keep tuned in. You know i mean those little moments. And i know you called a couple of them out during the broadcast that have just in between pitches are inbetween moments. When he was standing there and kind of singing to himself and dancing. I mean that even more so than some of those home runs. I think really just captivates people and helps them. See how much love standing there and doing this all right. Let's play the numbers game number. Three number three is one hundred thirty one. So we're talking about peter. Lonzo has now hit one hundred thirty one career home runs in the derby and yes. I know the former exchange a couple of years ago. So obviously that influences this but that is the most home runs. Anyone has ever hit a home run derby career and yes. I mentioned ken griffey. Junior won three derbies that was under a different formats. So of course there were fewer home runs one hundred and thirty one career. Homerun derby home runs the most anybody all-time men doing this since nineteen eighty five. So he's one of four multi time winners with griffey who won three. Un assessments and prince fielder. So of course. We're all waiting to see if he will come back and challenged griffey. And then i mean at this point it feels like you know pete alonso is going to win six derbies if you wants to. So we'll just have to wait and for six more seasons and find out number. Two number two is five hundred twenty so of course something. Everyone was super excited. To see heading in was how long was our longest home. Run going to be where chorus field in the thin air. The humidor was off. There were a lot of factors headed towards long home runs and we saw some really massive home runs. Slow longest was five hundred and twenty feet by one soto which just absolutely blows away. Every single stack has record. We have the previous longest homerun. Derby homerun was five hundred thirteen feet by aaron judge. In miami twenty seventeen and again the longest in game homerun tracked by statcast. Five hundred five seed and we didn't just see five twenty. We also sought five eighteen from trevor story and five fourteen from peter lonzo and otani also equal judge at five thirteen. So i mean. I think that it's really hard to process any home. Run distance above like four hundred and forty five twentieth. Massive number one number one is three hundred and nine. So that's how many total home runs. We saw head in this year's derby. That's just shy of the record which was three hundred eleven and twenty nineteen but that is a ton of home runs. That is the second most we've seen in any derby in yes of course the format contributing but that just tells you how many baseballs or fly into that colorado night and all of those home runs added up to one hundred and thirty eight thousand seven hundred sixty five feet of distance which is also a number that it's completely impossible to process so that's about twenty six point two eight miles so just about a full marathon just around twenty six point two plus a couple extra yards just i mean massive massive amounts of home runs and they were all travelling so far. It was so much fun to watch the end. It looked like alonso could go another hundred miles. Would he do that comparison because he was so much at ease Before you go. I want to ask you about this so yesterday. I was walking out onto the field and i pass matt barnes of the red sox and of course just blurted out. Hey congratulations because we just got more that That he and the red sox had agreed to this two year extension seven and a half million dollars year for the next two years. He has potential escalators based on games finishes finished And what occurred to me when i saw. This was good for matt. Barnes to jump the market. Sarah as we've seen in recent years how many right-hander relievers are out there. And i know matt. Barnes is an all star now. But you and i both know about how volatile relief perform reliever performance can be you can go up and down and it was really smart of him to lock up this deal now and i think it was really smart of the red sox to lock him up now and i think it sets them up potentially to deal with a political situation if they were to take a run at craig kimbrel no because if you do acquire someone like kimbro for the bullpen. You create this question of. Who's going to be. The closer will now for matt barnes. It really doesn't matter quite as much because he knows he's gonna get paid in a pretty good money each the next two years and maybe he would feel very differently about great gamble coming in takeovers..

The government needs to be required to keep that promise. And that affects everybody because It's the public needs to know that when the district attorney says he's going to do something that he does it, and that's money in the bank, you can take that to the bank. In this instance, the district attorney me made a decision. A good outcome occurred not the best, but a good outcome occurred for the for the complaining, witness and a subsequent district attorney said. You know what?

When the Cubs are up seven. Nothing you can detect who The cub fans were plenty of them. It was a mixture as we were walking into the stadium of just a sea of cub fans. Different uniforms different years. Is the thing about the Cubs Uniform house evolved over the years how you see, like maybe seven or eight different types of cubs uniforms, and then you get the old school brewers uniforms as well.

Irrelevant fading because the admission standards have become too vague and because the game has become too dirty well jeff. Idols is the president of the baseball hall of fame in cooperstown and he responded with a column of his own and i thought it was an interesting discussion so i invited jeff to join us here on sports byline first of all jeff. What was your reaction when you saw scott ostler column. Well i know scott scott. I enjoy his writing. But in this case i felt that what he penned wasn't exactly true That the hall thing isn't becoming more and more irrelevant. And it does have a place in america and always will. Do you think that scott's reaction to this was partly the media cynicism that exist today with sports and partly just out of the frustration and to some degree the anger of not only the media but also probably the fans toward baseball talked to scott. So i'd be guessing but it has to be frustration. Were anybody who's a baseball fan Has to be frustrated with steroids. But the same token the more of its. That's exposed the quicker.

"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

Wait ... Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is a star again?
"He hit and he kept hitting and he's continued to keep hitting where are you with matt kemp and the aforementioned concept time it's it's it's it's been amazing i mean that grand slam on saturday was obviously like any respectable major laker should have hit that specific pitch out but can't just paste it in it really just sort of br crystallized like this is a matt kemp that no one thought that we would see again and you know it's funny kemp's i two significant home runs of this season his homer to dead center in the freeway exhibition series right before opening day dodger stadium against the angels in his first homers in the regular season this year against dodgers et dodger stadium joe davis had the same call and he said matt kemp turning back the clock and that's exactly what feels like i said this weekend after i hit him on hit that moonshot i said i felt like i feel like i'm gonna time machine watching this guy and this is just something that fans always want to see with players like this but seemingly never do kemp as we all know in two thousand eleven should have won the mvp he was second behind ryan braun right ahead of prince fielder good good year for the for the brewers and you know since then it was a very steep descent for camp i think he got injured the very next season and he just never really put it together after that and it was heartbreaking we had this guy who i mean he was just custom made for los angeles he just looks great new dodgers uniform he's comfortable around celebrities he you know he was least like serviceable in the outfield in just like he could hit for average he could hit for power he was great we really thought that with camp in kershaw we really thought we just had sort of like the cornerstones for the next decade and that obviously turned out to be the case with kershaw but way too soon kemp was just all of a sudden off the radar and you know he's he hung around for a few more seasons it was funny the team was really starting to take off but kemp was not and it just i it had one of these uncomfortable things where you see this guy either in the lineup or on the bench and you just kind of think this just doesn't this just doesn't fit the netting nothing about this as right and then when he was exiled to san diego it just got more sad because who wants to plant san diego especially after you've been playing los angeles and you know by the time it got to atlanta you know he just seemed to really be fitting this narrative that you see about extremely talented players who won't point seemed like maybe to be an hall of fame conversation but just because of the vix itunes of injury and time it just wasn't going to work out and then when he came over to begin the year i think people fell a little uncomfortable they felt one like we already tried this this didn't work this is just this is this is just this is a bad idea especially because as you said no one thought that he was going to even make the roster and then when he did i think some fans is kind of thought wait a minute if kemp is making the roster what's wrong with this roster but then right away he started to hit and even when the dodgers were struggling early there is this one thing about the team that was really disorder of keeping everyone's attention and it was it i.
