David, you're on free talk live. On another time. Tell you. I can tell you why you have thumb mall responsibility to help with a guy who's an overweight. And so on like that. How's that? Another time. It'll take time right now. What I wanted to do was. I just mentioned it because you asked the question on there. Okay. Kennedy answer, a responsibility to subsidize my hormone therapy. Degree. Yeah. Okay. But anyway, so the your freedom fest or whatever it is team wild wild west or wild west. Yep. In in New Mexico. There's a recurring theme where whenever. Crimes to other. Mickey Mouse stuff goes on. They'll this recurring theme that people will say we will. Well, it's still the wild west. They of use that as an excuse to explain bad behavior in New Mexico. Also, remembering that, the FBI the the head of the FBI in New Mexico has faded Mexico's most corrupt state in the nation, and they continually prove it this judge did I was researching the Pamela Smith, she was appropriate judge in the era county, which is the tier see truth or consequences. Which is an app. Name the town hot springs, the change at game two to truth or consequences. Judge hot springs. Yes, they do. They do. Do they have consequences for liars? Probably not. Well, it's just finding out that there meet there may actually be beginning to be some consequences for liars in the state of New Mexico. She got the supreme court suspended her back like a year ago when they were investigating this. And then now come the looks like the criminal charges are finally going to come. But what she did too. I did some deep reading court documents. And it's rather elaborate this Dominguez guy died at eighty two the end was discovered and in the the the judge turns out was not only the probate judge for will that kind of thing. But she was also had gotten herself appointed by the university of New Mexico to be the deputy in that area for the medical investigator ugly that stands for and that that should never have happened in the state of New Mexico or anywhere because it's a conflict of interest to be the judge over dead people as well as the medical investing. Gator. So that never should have happened. But it did. And then another thing that she did. Her husband Randy Smith, who you can get nice Facebook page, which which is a boat repair in both fail shop at elephant Butte reservoir in New Mexico big voting hotspots, and that that I was just gonna ask I mean. Supporting New Mexico. I don't think voting hotspot go ahead. Easterners all over the west every every bit of water that flows has been dammed up with very few exceptions, your those. These big big lakes that the result from rivers being dammed up all over the west and New Mexico has a dozen of them. And in one of the biggest one I think it's the biggest one is the elephant Butte reservoir, anyway, he's got a boat shop there in that comes into play because Randy Smith. Like, I said, he's got a Facebook page for this business. You can see his smiling face in the business. Is you can see a building which looks like it's under construction brand new building. Which in the court documents. I read that Randy Smith of this two hundred and eighty thousand dollars they took from this dead guy. Some of it went into his business. And it looks like it may have been used to help build Randy Smith's of building their repair shop. But anyway, this guy dies and the the probate judge flash medical examiner or medical investigator goes to this guy's home. And immediately finds a a black suitcase or black briefcase underneath the bed. I believe. All of this guy's financial documents in the in the briefcase in in order had everything in her that she that she needed and then later in the court documents, I read that the oh, and she also she claimed that there were no she could not locate any next of kin, she had a discussion apparently with the chief of police in truth or consequences, New Mexico. And and she claims that the the police chief told her that he didn't know of any relatives. However, the police chief Keith a police told other people in the investigation that he thought that the guy had relatives in New York. And she claimed that the judge claim that she had contacted the the pension of administrator of this guy guy was a bricklayer Mason, and he'd been in a union and you getting some pension from them. And so this this day died and this corrupt government official. Was founded a suitcase that allowed her to basically still his identity take all this money. I mean, that's correct. Right. The suitcases is is what I'm getting to is. There actually is a living nephew into living sister. You know as far as close relatives. He actually had a living sister. Yeah. But how did she get the money? I guess is what the judge slash corner. Get the money. I mean, you know. Judge in a corner. I wouldn't see how I would get the money from the sky unless it was in cash in a suitcase. I just slid into my car. I mean, I can't see here's how she did. It is first of all she like I said the chief claim to have asked the chief of police if any known relatives and she claims he said, no, however, he took the police told other people that he thought the guy did have relatives. And then she contacted the pension administration doesn't have him tips. Almost don't have them, right? And the pension fund people. She claims that they said that there was a step daughter or step sisters, stepdaughter. Anyway that had but but that person had died and that was completely fabricated. There was no step whatever. But what there was is. There was a blood sister. And. Judge do to get the money. I'm I'm getting to that. But it makes no sense. If I don't tell this part, I. The sister and the nephew are. David. It'll make a lot more sense. If you just let me tell it the sister and the nephew are alive, and well, but the judge claims that there was no living relatives because he checked with different parties. However, what the what the the pension fund told her is that there were living relatives? But she pretended that there wasn't. And then what they did is is they created fake court documents that that since they weren't in the habit of preparing these documents the clerks usually did it when they were legit. But then they were faking them they did it themselves, and they left all kinds of evidence on the the documents where they were faking this and fudging that that was easy to see later in what they were covering up is that there was a the living nephew and turns out the living nephew had actually met. The husband Randy Smith person two years earlier and was introduced to him by the the the now dead guy. And they were they denied it. This nephew existed. And the the the the the sister living sister got a letter from the pension fund getting a condolence that her brother had died. That's how she found up the brother died and in. So what palm that letter? They started doing their own checking in to find out that the the inheritance see all along the goal is going to be really terrifying to realize you have a heritage. And then to realize a judge has stolen it because how do you get Justice? When a judge steal something, David appreciate go ahead. Get.

He was a bit of a emotional day. Here dressing the club first day of spring training. And you know, this at the beginning briefly told them my my plans, and then we talked about what what we were to get done. But. Yeah. It's always tough. I guess when something you see something coming to the end. And then finally announced so it was a tough day at times. So tell us this why. Now why why make the announcement for the season? What what's your thought there? Well, I'll take you back. It all started my thoughts on this at the end of last year. And I talk to Larry Baer about this Brian. And then. Kind of told them what what I'm leaning towards doing. And I was going to take some time off and in the process this, and and then the question just came up so much, you know, about my situation. And I just said, you know, it's hard for me to be honest with everybody when they're asked me questions what I'm gonna do. I think it was fair to far Larry myself, even but also the team, and you know, I try to keep them from having to deal with distractions, and I don't want that going on on all year. So I said, you know, what I'm gonna get out there put it behind us, and you focused on baseball. So it just kind of tell us. I'm sure you thought about it during the off season and kind of went back and forth with it. And obviously a lot of changes within the organization was it just something in the off season. You you put a lot of thought to stop going to do it right out of the gate. Yeah. I mentioned this. You have to the media after the workout today. Sometimes you just know it's time, man. It's simple as that. That's I've got no other plans or gender. I have done a lot of managing with my gut. And my gut feeling just told me, you know, what it's time, you know, whether team needs here another boys I needed a break. You know? It's just my time to step down and not good with it. I really am. Even though it was a tough day. And I feel great. I really do. But I just said, you know, what I do. It's time to retire from this managing I'll stay in baseball. Aaron I have already talked about, you know. Working in another capacity, and we haven't gotten very far on that. But I'll I'll do something to baseball baseball. She's going to have to join us giants manager. Now he's going to retire at the end of the season. Like, you said you're going to stay in baseball net is great. That's great news to hear, but your your your professional playing career in the majors goes back to seventy eight. You're managing career goes back to two ninety five do things kind of flashed through your mind yet. Or is it kind of end of the season. Maybe you'll go back and kind of acknowledge some of the some of the great things great moments of your career. Oh, it has. There's no question. I've done some reflecting this off season probably more my managing career than my baseball career. But you know, it just it's been a blurred shot by and. I'm proud of what? No, we've all accomplished here together. And I I wouldn't finish up on a good note to do. I wanna spend a strong talked about that with the players. And so I think anytime you see something coming to an end, you you're gonna think back you're going to reflect on the good times. And maybe some things you might miss. And so, but I haven't done a lot of it. I feel like I'm making the right decision. I'm good with your like, I said, and it's time for me to put this behind us in and get ready for a good year boats. I was looking obviously at your record. And and and thinking about talking to you today because I knew you were gonna come on. You started this thing in two thousand and seven and just the way that managing is going guys being able to make it as long as you've made it especially here with the giants being here since two thousand seven. Yeah. I do you know if you have to. The right chemistry between the front office of general manager of the president and the manager. Sure, I see that. And you know, it's a little bit more of a collaboration now than ever before. Then when I first started I got the team from. Well, Randy Smith hard me, but Kevin towers, and and then coming up here, and you know, saves dying. We did do a lot of collaboration. But you know, I had the freedom to pretty much knew what I wanted. And so, and I don't think that's going to change much. I really don't four hundred and I've talked about this. But anyway, that's. Yeah. I just think if it's right group they get along. I I can see, you know, good team staying together. As far as GM manager g president. The obvious stuff is is the World Series ten twelve and fourteen and as you look back on that. But I just wanted to focus. I was thinking about ten and when you came into spring training this exact time in two thousand ten and you had those veterans going in there. And then you added during the season, how special I know all three of them are special. But this first one did you have a feeling about it? And then as you kind of added those veterans, and you guys ruling never favored in any of those World Series. But how fun were those specifically ten when you when you got into spring training? Did you see it that? Hey, this might be a group that can do some special stuff. Well, I go back to two thousand nine and we really made a lot of improvement at like we we took a big big step forward. And of course, you know, the kids that we had come up through the system. You know, they were starting to come up and help us oppose these in Baumgartner's Santa balls. I mean, we just had a tremendous group of kids coming up in that a win leave anybody out later on 'course Crawford in panic. But yeah, you you could tell that this club was they were prime prime to have a good year. Now, you know, it's hard to say the prime to win the World Series. But we felt like we could we could win the division. And at least get the postseason with the pitching that we had we Ryan. And I talked about, you know, turning this into, you know, pitchy pitching defense just playing baseball in in this, you know, scratching call for the runs, and and really was a dream come true. It's first year now, and it's funny. And you know, you're talking about how fun. It was but. We get to the postseason. I mean, it's it's intense, and you try to have fun, but it's so incense and every move can can sway a series. So there's there's a lot of pressure to goes with it. But when it's all over. I mean, you just have this. You're feeling that's hard to describe. But it was the first one for me. I won, you know, for San Francisco the city I'm talking about. And and so it's it's one I'll never forget. And when you talk about the three, you know, it's the two thousand ten rings on I usually wear when I wear one. Yeah. Absolutely. Bruce bocce is good enough to join us from spring training announced earlier today that he was going to retire after the season told us that he's going to stay in the front office. Which is great news with the giants. You can't be are. Let me let me go back just a couple more years to because I I was like I said knowing that you were gonna come on three. What was it like the first year and oh seven yet? Timmy coming up and he had a ton of buzz in the minors. I remember the Sunday night game against the Phillies. I believe was the first one and you had berry in his last year. Just right when you stepped in and you've got this young guy and Tim Lynch pin coming up, and you've got Barry Bonds still around. What was it? What was it dislike at the beginning? Like that. Well, I'll be. A honeymoon their first year. I mean, we weren't very good. We we were an aging ball club that started out. Bad and gradually get worse. It's it was a club that you know, we we felt like we had to make some changes we had to get younger more athletic and. Yeah. We had berry berry could still hit. And I probably warm down that first month. 'cause I, you know, I we had some good names. But the fact the fact that matter is we we were just getting older. Now, I'm not just talking about berry, but up the middle everywhere. So trying to hang in there. Probably wore berry down at first month because he he was still the big bad. And so, yeah, we yeah. We had some rough patches there. I'm sure some fans are wondering what Flannery and I were coming up from San Diego. You know, who are these guys? And playing even asked me a couple of times wha-what's where in the world. Did you get into here? But you know, we gave you know, they gave us some time, which I'll forever appreciate Brian. And of course, Peter McGowan Larry ownership they give us some time to get it turned around. And and you know, luckily, we got turn around and just sat some kinda ride Easter dead. It's it's been great for the city and all these different fans in the ballpark. And everything is just created a whole new, I think buzz for the organization, and obviously a lot. What you did? What all these players did give us a little insight into what it's like one hundred sixty two games because it to me what a grind and people talk about coaching in the NBA coaching in the other sports, but boy one hundred and sixty two games all the moves. Like, you said you've got it. You've had to made great bullpens you've had through these years, especially in the championship. But what is it like to grind through one hundred sixty two games? You gotta keep the team together. You have different players from. Different parts of the world. It's it's got to be an amazing challenge. Hey what I do. So I don't think about that. But when you're comparing you know, basketball, football, or whatever. You know, I I don't know. Quite to grind. I know. It's gotta be a tough crimes were especially basketball with all the travel and the games they play football..

And what we've done is taken of couple of some of Phil's calms from the old career express and run them in the sense kinda long the edges of some of the pages. And and certainly his column about the Braves leaving the log is just it's just it's just amazing. So one of things, and you know, the last couple of lines John Brown's game plan was perfect one for three months. Drove everybody baddie with his chorine of city after city that point where everybody had him and the Braves of two of the here, then pulled off this attendance deal.

So. Times in in Buffalo, New York, certainly in the seventies. It was at the memorial auditorium known as the odd. And we Tim Wendel going back in time with us to talk about the Braves in the NBA during the nineteen seventies. You know, again as as time marches on the the franchise known as the clippers. You know continues to kind of move up the charts so to speak in sort of a game continued to love from the fans basketball fans of Los Angeles versus the Lakers and their longtime dominance, I step back or two is always interesting to know sort of how they got to what they are today, and, you know, the clippers of course in San Diego.

You know, it's almost like math news now known as LA Laker or almost known as much for his successes providence than as a success in buffalo, it drove around a little crazy Randy Smith and for three pass down a couple years ago. But he's very proud among others to be brave and yet he was telling me at one point I'm known as a clipper now and was really great. And so it's easy. How in this day and age maybe again, it's usually a harbinger of things become how quickly team can disappear and quickly a real good team can disappear in how even the employers the great players from our are remembered in different life because that team doesn't anymore. Yeah. And you know, but it kinda does. Right. I mean, the clippers have a direct lineage right to their they've were birthd- if you will from this breeds franchise, and you could again kind of we kind of luted to it earlier. I mean, the fans of Toronto today with the raptors can oh a little bit. I think of their franchise to, you know, the the little beginnings of interest in in regionality, I guess of of what the Braves started in the seventies. And it's so, you know, it's again, it's sort of another reason why we kind of do these shows because you know, as these memories sort of fade, and and his people pass, you know, I think it's really important to sort of remember, and we also try to bend over backwards to find, you know, original practitioners as well. Because some of these oral histories, if you will are, you know, important things because they can fade away in memory. And I, you know, especially now with the the LA clippers right? Being this. I guess the last major NBA franchise purchase right for, you know, an ungodly sum with Steve bomber and friends. You know, it's interesting. I mean, just look back to what the is somewhat humble beginnings of what that franchise was. And you know, I it's interesting to go back, and sort of remember how this thing came about in the first place, and there's a whole generation of kids, you know, young whimper snappers out there. Right. You know, that you know, the LA clippers were always in Los Angeles. And you know, it's clearly not the case. And at some point, we'll talk about the San Diego version of that. But it it's all it's all part of the history. I just I'm constantly fascinated not only about sort of the existence in what transpired when these teams around. But I'm also very interested slash concerned about how today's successors or, you know, next generations of these franchises or once that don't exist anymore. How they are. Either remembered and embraced by what exists today, or frankly? And sadly, more often not I've seen it S-occer. We've seen it in some of the football franchises of the past. We've seen you know. It's almost like in some cases, there's almost a a willful ignorance or a desire to not be reminded of some of the times when things weren't so great..

"I think he wouldn't coach of the year honors and sixty six or sixty seven forget, and but then he was like he was I thought he was like the sort of head of officiating or something for a bunch of years. He really. In a coach really for all that much. Not only a good length of time. But then, you know, kinda taken a leave of it. I'm just curious as to why he was the guy circled on the on the blood of. Because I think he was a name, you know, he was a name kind of, you know, reverberate through in a sense, western New York, certainly central New York. And and I agree with you. I don't think he was maybe necessarily the the way fastball mastermind at this point in time. But this is where again, the lack of a plan or the lack of insight from ownership on down from his phone office down a little problematic. I mean, you know, they haven't been GM. Let's bring in a coach who essence is more of a main as opposed to this point time coach again, I don't need to compare them all the time with the savers, but you look at the favorites. And they brought in a very successful coach size skiing and punch him. Black who would had great success in Toronto again that regional thing working favors, Dan. I should have time. So I think it was. Somewhat fan. Not for sure what to do. But I think in credit, you know, they learn as quickly, but it's almost like talking of office the brace office. It's almost they the got to it celebrated our two revved up because they did things around real quickly for an expansion team by the fourteen they're they're they're in. They're they're they're going to some of the best teams, you know in in the game. And yet know they're making off spike seizes four they're back in there and season five six. Like everything to frantic at that. You know, it's almost like the residue or the bad memory the first three seasons, especially for to was resonating to my with ownership in the front office. Well, you mentioned the arrival of of Dr Jack Ramsay price. So it's clear that well seems to be that. He was I don't know if he was the reason, but that lots of good things seem to start to happen, not necessarily immediately but relatively soon into his tenure, including not only his coaching capabilities right hall of Famer he but also a bunch of well, regarded talent some of which we talked about. But maybe we should dig a little deeper. Maybe first foremost is mister mcadoo from from Carolina very much. And I think, you know, makanin, certainly is I guess probably, you know, with Dr Jack the main reasons things starts at turn around, you know, certainly by. Making the playoffs by season four. And again, I think there was in Randy Smith getting better at this point. Some of those porting cast of getting better. But I don't think anybody quite expected Makhadov to force that he was coming out of college. I mean played as North Carolina's fine, great player and North Carolina. But again there was a bit. There was a major disagreement about worry should play and seem to be natural. Ford was not the biggest, you know. He's tall. It's not a bulky guy in the world. And you got to think that this is the time in the NBA were we'll chamberlain's, you know, I'm still going strong. Even though it was still soon down Crema dill Jabbar has become a force. They they towns with the Celtics etcetera and was pretty much out in the sesame. They put Makati with the center physician and low and behold..

"But the backorder Randy Smith or duper 'Gorio, Jack Maron gar heard what he and so you're kind of going we can score. But see we can out score the rest of the league. And they came very close to doing that they often ran into both of the bus and Celtics and one year they were ousted by the Washington Baltimore bullets, and they always were in the equation. Unfortunately, just pretty get over in their short existence in both flow over the home and really wanna championship. So it almost feels though. And again, you were there. I was not. But. Having grown up in the New York metropolitan area in sort of a follower of the the New Jersey Nets at the time, and the and the Knicks, of course, and you know, the brazen sort of walked in and out of not only town, but also consciousness the it seems though that they were kind of I don't wanna say ill-fated at the start. But circus, seventy right. They to me, it seems like two interesting things going on here. One. I is a new franchise along with what the Portland trailblazers and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the league itself for the seventy seventy one season buffalo is and it's two things one. They're also launching at the same time. The NHL is dropping team in in buffalo in the sabers. Right. So that's interesting. I'm wondering why that was that year was the was the odd. The on wasn't new right trying. The wasn't new at all and was coming up for free. Vichy Nash, you raising the roof the credit squeeze more people in it was pretty much buffalo and essence trying to go major league in a hurry on a couple of fronts and was heard citing an essence to around at that point. And you know, I was leaving high school going on to college, and so very much caught up in the sports seen and also beginning this year, the start the dam and cover it to a certain extent. But it's funny. What you have is. I think one I think one of the question every 'tatoes the Braves are among other things, but one of the preeminent ones that they are is the power of good ownership and how good ownership can, you know, cure a lot of ills. Hey can keep things on track when maybe teen isn't doing that. Well, and you almost had an offense. The jets position of the streams of with the sabres. Braves savers heads solid. So would ownership in the nuts. Brothers infected probably should've gotten any any shell teams a couple years before, but they were passed over they biding their time brought in really good organizational people and they built from there than they had incredible drafts. I mean for somebody who have hockey fans out there, the French connection which parole Ringo. Bayer Martin have Tim Schoenfeld on defense, Tim Horton, etcetera. I mean, it's just incredible. How they loaded that team up what she had unfortunate with the Braves if the original ownership group pretty much veiled before the team even took the court. And so they reach out to a local businessman who really was new to this whole equation. And a lot of people hold in the fall. I don't do as much as Paul Snyder who had made his fortune in frozen foods, and this type of thing, and they pretty much the city. Others even the NBA reshot him at the eleventh hour, can you help us out? I mean, the cities awarded team now we've got no ownership through because everybody else's gone and Snyder to credit stepped up the tonight or can't really number one for pair for this..
