"Fewer stolen bases, for instance, you're not going to get anyone coming close to Rickey Henderson in any way, shape or form, which has something to do with the offensive environment, but also something to do with the fact that people are running the numbers now, and maybe those things were not tactically sound, even if they were exciting. So again, you just get more strikeouts. Fewer steals, fewer triples, fewer innings. You could still get team winning streaks or scoreless streaks, but a lot of things at least for the foreseeable future are just entirely off the table. And so we're so starved for records that we get excited about things like wander Franco trying to break and ultimately tying the record for reaching base safely in consecutive games, which was fun because it was wonderful Franco, but the qualifiers it was the longest in AL slash NL history by a player 20 years old or younger, which made it impressive, but back again, it's not really a storied record, but that's the best we had. Yeah, and so I think when you take all of that together, it just doesn't lend itself to the record chase, but then, you know, I think Sam's point is well taken. It's just they've never been. They just never been better than they are right now. So we have to take solace in the fact that we are just, you know, happen to be watching the best baseball that we've ever seen before and played right now. Yeah, I guess Garrett Cole kinda made a run at Nolan Ryan's single person strikeout record that season that Sam wrote that sort of he didn't all that close. On a long enough time frame, we will get rules changes and things will evolve and there will be interesting record chases again. But it's just something that I was sort of lamenting the last of as I was listening to this podcast about Cal Ripken and in retrospect, the Ripken record is incredible. I mean, it's amazingly impressive, even now, I guess as a spectator experience, it was kind of a weird one because it wasn't like highlights it was just like, is he in the lineup today? Did he play? Right. Did he get a day off or not even on the famous day when he broke Gary's record? And he just like he was there and he walked around and it was really special and everything, but he wasn't doing anything at the time. He was just like reporting for duty, basically, which was amazing. But it wasn't so much like riveting physical skill, although obviously he had those two and staying as durable as he was, is an amazing physical skill. It just doesn't lend itself to highlights in the same way that some other things do. Well, and I think that we've kind of not just in sports, but in culture, more generally, are kind of thinking more critically about our relationship to work and someone showing up and giving fans like a good time at the ballpark every day is admirable, but I also think that in other aspects of life and other industries, we would be very willing to say, you should take a day off if you're back as barking at you man if you're never. It's like it's okay for you to have one day off. That is not it does not indicate like a lack of want on your part. So I also think that part of why we are thinking perhaps a little bit differently about ripens record in particular is that we're thinking about work a little bit differently and we're like, how you probably should you probably shouldn't have gone that long maybe. It might have been better if you had if you had taken a day off every now and again and I don't want to I'm sure that their Orioles fans listening to this who are like, how dare you. I don't want to impugn that legacy. It's an incredible thing that he did. And the fact that he did it isn't made less incredible by the fact that we think about injury management or load management or work differently today than we did then, but it is, I think a more complicated legacy than we were really cognizant of at the time just because we think about this stuff a little bit differently than we used to. So I wonder I wonder if someone were starting to approach that today, how we as media members would write about it and sort of how we would think about the obligation of that person to continue both for themselves and the team because I think the conversation would be different today, which doesn't mean that it was bad before. It was just, you know, we engaged with these questions, I think, pretty differently than we do now. Yeah, he almost certainly hurt his stats and by extension, I suppose the team to some extent. And I think that was kind of a conversation at the time, especially later in his career as he declined. And in the rumors they do talk about some instances where he kind of finagled his way out of games before they were over just after he had qualified to extend the streak, but maybe got himself a few innings off here and there. But yeah, I mean, in retrospect, all this time later, it's hard to say, well, maybe your career batting average would have been a couple points higher or maybe the Orioles would have won this game or that game instead. Who knows about the physical toll that was inflicted on him that he inflicted on himself by insisting on staying in the lineup all that time. It's like a constantly doing podcast.

"Wallace playing strikeout and slapping that on that chicken like that movie was about to happen. Hey, man, A lot of people don't know. You know, Joe Morgan coming up, Um, with the college and Hayward. Ah, A lot of people didn't know about your mortar. He was a small guy didn't throw very well when he was a younger man. The tools as we talked about didn't just jump off the table. Those away that he played the game and every time that he got an opportunity to show what he was able to do it seem like he was always right on point. Just talking to some of the older scouts. You know, the guy who drafted me, Jim. Gwen wanted to renounce scouts in our whole business. Fine. Claudia Washington side Rickey Henderson, just a just a well respected man in our community. You know, coming up with Vada Pinson And Bobby Told not Bobby told all the guys that come from Oakland that were great players. Curt Flood was just another guy. But being just another guy being among those stars always raise your level of what you want to be. And man. Oh, man, Joe Morgan took his toe hold another atmosphere. You know, it's funny shooting I saw interviewed Joe did where he talked about making the All Star team you know, and and and how Willie Mays was such a driver of the intensity from the National League side that the N L want to show the A L. It was the better league and Joe just had such incredible admiration for Willy and Willie. Obviously, playing out here, you know, from from 58 on had a huge impact on awful lot of people grown up for sure. You know the baseball playoffs of being awesome, Toa Watch. I'm a little bit shocked by how good Tampa's bullpen has looked. But what? Give me your thoughts on Tampa because They get a leave. They don't cough it up that as well as a result, a rose arena Arosa. Raina is just absolutely raking right now, And he's just one of many. They look like they can win it all. I mean, they were 40 and 20. And they looked and we're seeing it. It's it's not accidental. There. There there juggernaut. Timing is everything. I'm not going to take anything away from the Tampa raisin what they've been able to accomplish because men if you look at that club and the talent they display every night, and then you come about big League baseball, you know, at his best. I mean things that timely you can tell that things have been planned. Guys were able to execute is one thing the co about to have a planet just like the box. You go in there with a plan, But once you get hit, you know everything that goes out the window. Well, these guys were doing it, but we're playing in such a capitalized, even talk about 60 games. I just there's so many different things that you could look at it. At first, I really felt that the pitcher's really had an advantage because no one had a lot of BP pitchers are a lot stronger. You look at a situation like that. I think, except for this series with Houston and Tampa, these routines that are very familiar with each other. There's some bad blood going on the playoffs is the team that lost to Houston company hears back that knocked him off. So they're young, smart, analytically driven they bought in. They've got a culture over there. Everybody has bought into it. And I'm and is showing right now. I mean, I think the macula great. You've got the old school and Dusty Baker, who has a lot of experience have been there so many times, and I can't just always go on what's on the paper. And then you got another team over here who's new school? And they do everything that's on the paper, so it's wit and will on their skill. There's intelligence. There's so much in this one theory and I'm loving it because you're looking at two opposite Ah, both and two teams that are battling in the American League Championship. I'm curious from a guy who's been around baseball. What? Ah, kind of an old school guy. What did you think of the players being miked up when Laureano was miked up? A lot of people had things to say, because a lot of things happened. While he was miked up when Kano was Mark Mike, Nobody really had much to say, because not a lot happened and I just said, Look, there's going to be times its great times. It's awkward. Ah, but don't forget the players of the ones. That want to do this for me shooting? It's more of a regular season thing. I don't know that I'd love it during the postseason. But if these guys feel like they can handle it, then that's fine. Although I will say Laura looked like before that throw home. He was messing with his ear piece of little pit share. I'm sure they didn't make Melvin Super happy about it. It's nice access for the fans as a baseball guy. What did you think of the whole thing? I think we have to really be mindful of the desire and the wants of our fans these days because they are holding our game together. Uh, but in my humble opinion, I don't like it at all. I agree with you 100 per cent. I think spring training a great time when you and Maura of more environmental guys just getting that work in and you've got a bunch of veteran guys that understand what's in front of them, and he is going through your drills like they normally do. But when you're out on the field and you're competing This is a man's game there, man teams set up there. I mean, these people's lives and their careers and their families lives on the line and the last thing and I thought the situation with Laureano when he got miked up. And of all came to him twice and then he didn't want to be in that situation. He handled it like a pro. But what came out of his mouth is probably the same thing that happens out of most athletes play when they're in a situation when there's the prize when it right on point. Some happens way that ball was hit in the gap. And Lori and I have to get after. You know, Tom, you've been there, you know, so I don't like it at all. And I know it's for the fans, but I think it's difficult to play at that level. When people expect you to be on your game. Every pitch every second every play for something like that. That probably could distract you that could cost your team can cause your whole organization. For the sake of entertainment watched the game. I think that entertainment enough So in your estimation, what what what happened to the A Z? I mean the Astros a lot of home runs or hit a lot of home runs. A lot of runs were scored, but by both teams Obviously not enough by the A's Astros hit him for almost three dozen runs. 33 I think is the exact number isn't as simple as they did just in heaven of pitching, Or does it go deeper than that? And How did they recover from another postseason unfulfilled. I'm not an excuse maker. I've never been a 41. Thank God most of time. I've always been a underdog, and that's what's driven me my entire life because I know I couldn't rest on my laurels. Anything else. It was all about my effort and what my actions display. I just truly feel in this series that Houston was better than we were. When you look at that lineup, guys that they run out there. This is a team that won the World Series They been together. They've had. They had some young pitching, but they have among young pitching that went out there and competing. And when you got guys that you don't know much about and these guys are hungry out there, man and they laid it on the line. I just think that they executed there a little more timely and what we were, and I truly don't feel that we played as well as we We're capable of because I saw situations were typically we would execute pitches may make certain pitches and they didn't do that by being what it was. I can't tell you but anybody that's been in that situation hard difficulty here, So I'm going to be the last one to point the finger at anyone. But I just feel that this point in time that Houston was just better than we were. Sometimes that's the deal. I mean, you know the best team, you know, oftentimes gets it. What's your read on Dodgers? Braves? Braves got Game one that got Ian Anderson going tonight? Kershaw got scratched. It's a great all time Dodger team if you look at some of the metrics The young Braves going toa who normally check out in the division, Siri's round. Are they going to get him here shooting or do you like to prevail? What disappears over you Talked to Larry 1995 96. When I first started scouting, you know, we kind of went to the world Series of 11 and loss of nothing to 96 with Atlanta. That's why I started scouting. So Uh, I kind of women for the brave a little bit. But I'm going to tell you what this is probably going to be the most exciting star field athletically drip in Syria that you're going to see if you go, man per man on each team, the Braves go one and nine. Atlanta is not out in the lineup, and you're talking about some dynamic players when you come by Ozzie Albie..

Pitcher could still go wherever he wants to go, and the 02 on the way bounced in runner going down to second and in there safely. Moncada and a head first slide with a stolen base. I like it.

Simeon did a nice job hanging in there on a throw that One hop. And Moncada. He's up and walking around, but something's bothering him. It's hard to tell like he's kind of got his right elbow in towards aside, but he's limping a little bit, but he just waved off the dugout. He said. Don't come out. I'll tell you what, Dan that right there is what more guys don't steal bases anymore. I know the analytics don't like it either. But there's a wear and tear on stealing bases that most people don't realize. And especially the guys that do when they're young. Once they get paid, they just don't do it anymore. It's amazing if you look back into the eighties and see the Rickey Henderson's in the Vince Coleman's and Tim Raines, is it just the sheer number of attempts in a season? Want us to look back at Moncada and the one to down it in two balls, two strikes. You want to talk about records that will never be broken. Rickey Henderson stole 130 bases. I think it was 1982. I'm not mistaken, and he was caught 42 times, so he had 172 attempted stolen bases in a baseball season. The motor that it takes to do that to pull the trigger that many times.

Well for me so and you know, you put Antonio put Antonio back on that list. I did not put it He was. He was a Y receiver, though he never got a chance to play quarterback.

You all right now, let's get to sportsman. You guys were bashing the tigers now. Okay? My second favorite position on the baseball field Center field, Okay? So who was the greatest center fielder of all time? And who was the greatest Detroit Tiger Center fielder of all time. Well our way in and say Chester Lemon. He's my favorite. Janice. That's what I was gonna say. Chet Lemon in The other name I was gonna drop was And I hate him. I hate communities. But Rickey Henderson, What do you think? I think Ricky Henderson one, He's more was Ah, corner. I'll feel that they will either say, Hey, kid would be if we were talking about all times center fielders. I think Henderson was a corner. Outfielder. But I would say Ah, I would say Willie Mays. It kind of stopped there. If you want to say man alive, but but may Maze in DiMaggio. I would think in my day Ken Griffey Jr Mike Trout's pretty good right now. Those are the guys that come to mind for me. All right, my my next. My next question about the center fielder. And that was one of my big, warm center fielders who were leadoff hitters now that narrows it down. Randy. Madison. And we traded Granderson away. He was a Detroit tire. Correct? Yeah, he was He traded away or was Or did he or did he signed in the offseason? I can't remember which would know he was He was traded to the Yankees, and I think when the tiger's ended up getting Max sure they're in a three way deal with Arizona, you know what I think? Yeah, I think that was You know, I think we got Schlereth out of that deal is well, too. I think that was one of the big things there. We got Java or something like that. Obviously, that shows you how great my memory has been over the past. You know, decade and change. So that tells you something, But to me When it comes, it might want to go specific with lead off center fielders. To me. It's Granderson. Um All time. Yeah, I think I think Chet Chet Lemon would be ah would be the guy. I mean, he's definitely one of the popular choice is part of that roar of 84. Wow. Yeah. Chet Lemon is a good one. Is it still there on dope? We we lost God. Yeah, Technically, Ty Cobb was also center fielder. So that would that would be a pretty good pickles. Well, but I don't know what kind of outfielder Ty Cobb wasn't. It was a hell of a hitter. I remember the days back in the early 1900 sitting there over there. Ah, just along the first base line, just like that's my guy right there. Cobb. I didn't talk that way was that that's That's my guy, right? That that's That's my boy. Right there. Cobb is. Ah, stead standing. Oh, man right there. Center fielder for the Tigers. You have Ah. I think you'll be a Hall of Famer. We don't know what all fame is at this point, but he's going to be one He's going to be going to know. Know what around the world at that point at the presses? But he'll be the first. Ah is one of the first what six players ever inducted into the holiday. Yeah. Before the Babe Ruth before. I mean, Jakob, look, look at his numbers. There there. Exactly what you want. That's exactly what you wanted in the in there, But look Again. I mean, are we talking? Modern day? Are we talking? You know, Old day baseball. I get it. I know numbers. Numbers don't get old, I guess right. That may be father Don't know. No. You can. Ah, it's like when you mentioned like, I think Jakob's course it didn't pop it in my mind that he would have been considered a center fielder. I just think about him hitting But ah hey. He was a center fielder. There you go. So that God could be somebody's. I mean, if you're doing a fantasy, I mean, that's a guy that you might want to take. I mean, look, baseball is the numbers game that it than any other sport that I know people. When they When they talk about baseball, they talk about the guy's numbers. That's how you get into the Hall of faith. Do you have all of fame numbers? It's not being nice guy. Good guy. Whatever guy it's all about, you know? It's all about, um It's all about the numbers. You've gotta have the numbers to that stack up against the other Hall of Famers. You compare? Or do you surpass? That's what I mean. And I like that about baseball. Yeah, and I would put Ah. I put Mickey Stanley in there as well. But somebody would have to call up that. Ah. And let me know about that one. All right. Yeah, I hear you that I mean, Okay, I get I get what Mike is saying. I get what Mike is saying. Sometimes on sometimes the out there. I miss the joke. Don't Mike, Where was the joke today Doesn't usually give us a joke usually gives you like, like some kind of some kind of off off. Topic riddle or whatever, but Ed. Not not.

"Looked back at this day in history. Brought to you by Brown Chevrolet. August 26th 18 73. The first public school kindergarten in the United States, was authorized by the school Board of ST Louis, Missouri. And I think you know what that means. We will share the credo of one Robert Fulghum, who wrote my second favorite book coming up later on in the show. On this day in 1920, the 19th amendment to the Constitution certified. The amendment prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in the voting booth. In other words that gave women in the United States the right toe vote. On this day in 1982, Rickey Henderson tied Lube rocks 1974 record of 118 stolen bases in a season. As the Brewers down Kansas City. In the year 2002 on this day, you may remember then United States Vice President Dick Cheney, speaking of the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Tennessee, announcing that quote, no doubt That Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction and was going to use them against the United States and its allies didn't take long to find out that that wasn't true.

"So it's like it's like a 5 12th sound bite, but it's just price. The Cardinal's announced that Jack Filaret E. They're opening day starter. Have a bullpen session today at Wrigley Field on depending how he recovers from that extended session. The cards hope he starts Game one of the doubleheader Wrigley Field. That would be two days shy off four weeks since he last threw a pitch to an opponent. Unreal. I mean, like for Hoody and me, I mean our socks, you know, like it's it was such a White Sox weekend again. Like Saturday. How do you explain it? I mean, like, of all the weird things in sports, OK, you know, we're just talking about the weirdness of hockey and like why something like last night can happen and Blackhawks were thoroughly dominated, but they win a playoff game. And like the goofy things that happened, the cardinal's hadn't played in 17 days. They come out. They score four runs in the first inning. I mean Lucas Julio's awful in the first inning, right? I mean, he's hitting guys. He's walking guys he's given up and it's like what You lose back to back games, a team that hasn't played in over two weeks. It left me with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, and then they bounce back yesterday and their 500 there's still the eighth seed in That's probably going to be a hoody. They're just gonna hang around and that look you could get in this year. And you're probably going to get in at 500 all right around there, and then maybe they can make something magical happen and I'll take it. I don't care what you say about this season. I'll take it. I'd like to see them in the playoffs in the postseason, but You know, like they still haven't really They're not taking off the way I thought they would take off. You know what I mean? Like they are always there be 500 right where they are, where they are. That's that's who they are. The injuries are part of it, but also the ineptitude. Yeah, I just just What is so frustrating is trying to hit this would guard find earlier like I don't like the station to station from the socks. You got young guys they're willing to run. If you have the green light. I think that that's an issue. But also I look at this team and I say, Well, you know what They're good, but you're just that Minnesota. I mean, that's what it is. Minnesota is good. I mean, they still kind of kicked the ball around every once a while. Defensively, you know, I mean, like there still there Still very white Sox, right? Like they're not all that great. Defensively all the time and gather really beat up right now. I mean, I get that You know, they go through these droughts where you've got five games where you scored 10 runs. Then all the sudden will score 15 in two games. I mean, it's very like, you know, And then even some of the additions I mean like incarnate, Sione is a very He's classic White Sox acquisition late in his career, hoping to I don't know. Catch what? I'm not sure, but he's just awful. I mean, he's awful. That's that's that would be the hybrid like Kenny Pick, right? It kind of is, you know, I always liked you, Kevin Youkilis. Exactly. It's like the guy that he's Ah, Robbie Alamar, you know, twice ended his career Can graffiti Junior you know, like when they're all broken down like and carnage? Has been. He's awful. I mean, you know Mazzara, like what? They were doing it with his R. We could stop with the Giolito a stuff until we can get back to back outings about a lot. And how about get out of the first inning for crying out loud? I get what they were doing with the Mazzara signing, too. But again, like he makes a bad read on the plane, the outfield in a critical inning in on the second game on Saturday. You know, Ball falls him, but he's got to take charge of that ball. Of course, A couple more runs come across and they lose. It's just like it's so frustrating sometimes and then you get excited yesterday when you watch them hit four straight home run so and thump. Um, yeah, I mean, it's like it was it was. It's a classic White Sox weekend. You know you you're up. You're down. You're up. You're down. You feel great. You feel like Oh, my God. What is with this team? It's Maddox. Somebody a good friend of mine. Chuck just sent me on Twitter here. Here is the John Olaru revealing the truth behind the Amazing Rickey Henderson story. It is one of baseball's great legends. Alot of Babers called Shot Mighty Casey's Big with and Abner Doubleday's Invention. It's Sunday night. John already arrived at the BB W ay awards dinner to tell the full truth behind the Rickey Henderson story for those are unaware. I just told it well, Henderson said. Man I played with someone looks just like you in New York and old response. Ricky That was me. The truth behind the story was that Scott Lawrence and our assistant trainer had a great dry sense of humor. He came up with stories. He was great. He would see a picture of the paper looked like one of our players. He cut it out, put it on the bulletin board in the trader and make up a story. He found out Ricky got Simon The Mariners, he told the clubhouse guys, did you guys hear what Ricky just told Ali, And then they went and told the guys in the clubhouse. Did you hear what he just said to John Olerud? Unfortunate. For all the rude, the story became a legend. It's more fun than the truth. But the legend will likely live been debunk. That's fine, but it's not the personality piece of Ah, John. That's so sweet. That is that a thank you not to save as a camera follow you around. No. But it's good times should have followed me around where I did my best work in the mode that would have been special backto our elephant dung story. Well, the problem with the white sex issue real quickly. Is you didn't manage expectations. What would you expect that of his team. They went 81 in 81. That was a nine game improvement from last year, Right at your co's number. Come out when that's true. You're right. Your The right of your number. I mean, they're 500 right team. They're going to be wonderfully explosive and wonderfully puzzling at the same time. Yeah, you might be right because they're mediocre. Their average team right now They're great times are ahead of them, and they've got to learn how to win this year, so they continue the processes they go into next with the new manager. Excuse me. Yeah. I mean, you're probably 100% correct problems they gave him an extension last year didn't have three years. You can you get that money like eight? Boylan's? That's true. Yes, it's not much money, right, buddy. It's probably like a familiar seizure. Even with this team that stands would before you'd have probably 32,000 there instead of 22. Yes, Yes, I white socks with this on the weekend, young and exciting. No way. People lot of people who are ready for this. Southside. Listen, talent. I gotta get going to work in the morning. I ain't got time for the socks on a window. I can't be trained to impart. But did the bar again My kids got to go to school and that time as C on Saturday. And by the way, you know, move the Sundays. The two o'clock I got to get out of man. Let us run the bases everyday. Be good by the way On Monday night football just confirmed what their new team is. Do you see it? No Steve Levy. Brian greasy. Oh, yeah, that was and Louis Riddick Lisa Salters. John Perry. That's officially official. There you go. Good crew. Schefty. Just tweeted it. So Yeah, the interest. I like critic. I think he's pretty good karma fine down after the weekend, and I can make my money back on Monday night. I really don't care who's calling the game either. Do why That's true, But it's nice if you've got a competent crew, and I think that's good. I mean, Steve Levy is a pro. I think Rick is really good. It's a good crew. Just call the game. I don't I don't need the pomp and circumstances on the clown shoes. Just give me the game. The Games are the entertainment. I don't need some idiot right now on the sidelines, telling me what the hell's going on. Well, I totally agree with that. But when the personalities air good, I mean, it does help the product. Anyone tonight for Monday night football was made on On the broadcast, wasn't it? I mean, that would made Monday Night football in the seventies. John Howard Cosell..

"Correct in the seven twenty four the seven would have been Nolan Ryan seventh no hitter he struck out Rickey Henderson with the final at bat beats Toronto three nothing at age forty four oldest to throw a no hitter that's right number seven is Nolan Ryan seventh no hitter and Ricky work number twenty four days when you're focused on this record you still want to do this day in sports history later Paul yeah I think that they are not ready enough with most sports the topic of realignment comes up every now and again the Western Conference the NBA's been better than the east for a while certain divisions in football perpetually unbalanced or just not consistently competitive and now baseball's divisions are really hard to keep balance you have the national health crisis in baseball might be experimenting with something something completely new USA today reported baseball's considering three ten division team divisions to a limit travel that proposal includes the central and west teams would only play within the division of course all of this is exploratory this stage it be interesting to see new rivalries popping up you know the nationals would face the Yankees and red Sox Dodgers get the Astros on a regular basis the crosstown angels as well cubs white Sox would see a lot of each other I know I know it sounds unorthodox but it's maybe the safest way to proceed and baseball fans will have to embrace it when we do speaking with Bob Costas the hall of fame broadcaster joining us on the program good morning Bob how are you I'm okay Dan how are you I'm doing okay trying to figure out how we get baseball back like now I'm hearing maybe there's a World Cup type scenario if if we get something up later in the summer what are you hearing as what would be actually be up a distinct possibility well I have to get in some regular season games to make it representatives even if they go to a tournament type thing for the postseason and I think that baseball fans would accept anything I've said this before anything short of running the bases clockwise they'd accept because of the unique circumstances they'd accept a World Series in the dome or a warm weather neutral site they'd accept all experimentation now's the time electronic plate umpire pitch clock with nobody on base everything settle with different postseason concepts but you got to play at least a representative number of regular season games before you concede even expanded our playoff field the latest thing which you would just detailing it's not something that they would go to on a permanent basis but it might be on the line might there's lots of proposals out there but it might be the best solution because players do not want to be quarantined off for several months these are young people with young families in many cases that's not going to work even if the stands are empty which is certainly going to be the case at the outset if not throughout in twenty twenty if they're able to play at all even with no fans in the stands playing in your home ball park is going to be so much easier to pick out all the facilities and everything else in place and then players will be able to go home and on the road you aren T. in them in a single hotel that seems that seems doable but as you look at it from a medical standpoint we're not experts but we can see that there are a lot of hurdles to clear before they can say with some sort of assurance they can responsibly say yes this is safe to do not just practical to do but safe to do do you work backwards if your baseball I know that Scott Boras said Hey we could have baseball right after Christmas and you could have a World Series then I don't know if you save this is the last date that we would have baseball now we work back and say can we get in one hundred games or what ever is going to be constitutes a fair and representative of of the season I think eighty is okay remember nineteen eighty one they played a split season because of a strike so you had separate division champions from the first half in the second half the Dodgers wind up winning the World Series and nobody considers that illegitimate but your point is well taken you got to work backwards because assuming if you're able to play in some way at all in twenty twenty you're not assuming there's going to be a full season in twenty twenty one fingers crossed if that's the case you can't play at the January and then turn around and have spring training yeah it's just getting you hear all these scenarios in and I applaud these leagues for thinking out of the box I just get nervous when I hear these arbitrary dates where you know we're going to start now we're going to we plan on playing this many games we we don't know this changes every day changes it feels like there are a couple times a day I just don't know and Dave Roberts the Dodgers manager and said Hey whoever wins this year there's no asterisk attached to this I don't want to worry about it an asterisk I want a word can can he actually play then we can worry about the damn asterisk after this but when you think your start date that you would say that that to me sounds plausible I wouldn't even venture a guess everything keeps changing even with the experts from a medical standpoint it's just an educated guess so it believes all of them not just baseball they're all right to have various contingency plans best case scenarios worst case scenarios everything in between and I think this is a good opportunity for baseball to send up all the trial balloons you know I heard one that's floating around I wish I'd thought of that myself and this would be for when they're able to play a full season and things have returned to normal we talked about this before Dan baseball has an interest in creating more postseason revenue and more inventory and therefore revenue and one suggestion we talk about a couple months ago was only the one division what are the number one gets by and the other two division winners had to be called in with wildcards and I didn't like that because it minimizes the importance of the regular season and puts those division winners and a crapshoot here's a new idea I wish I could claim it but I've heard it three division winners as ever four wildcards see big splendid the post season by four teams two additional teams initially but here's the way it goes all three division winners get a by which they earned now you've got a knock out series where the one wild card that will emerge into the division series has to win two games one place for one game on the home field of the number one wild card to place three on the home field at number two the two survivors meet on the home field of the highest remaining seed and the winner moves into the division series now you've expanded the playoffs yes you provided television with additional single elimination games which they love but you've actually put more emphasis on the long regular season because the division winners stand completely apart from the wild card round the now the wild card survivor has to win two games instead of one use pictures they're at a disadvantage going into the postseason you accomplish two things you've modernized by expanding the playoffs but you've also put additional emphasis old school style on the regular season I wish I thought of it myself is this a one off or do you would you like this proposed as baseball moves forward when we actually have a regular you know one hundred and sixty two game schedule no I think this makes sense going forward with a full season under normal circumstances what they do this year I'd I'd be open to anything this year because the circumstances are so different this time around I think baseball fans would accept any have you called a game with no fans non owner would know fans with no fans well you know I was the voice of the spirits of St Louis from the mid seventies and I actually came in with you know there were some games and your basketball guy I swear the the spirits against the San Antonio Spurs and here's Marvin Barnes right in front of me I'm sitting court side about the inbound guarded by George Gervin and there's a crowd of eight hundred and twelve in a nineteen thousand seat arena you got time for a story against okay Rudy marquis who we all know what is the first in a long running which TV critic for the USA today now happily retired in Florida Rudy was the director of operations for the spirits of St Louis and now there's a time out and they've announced the crowd as something like three thousand or something and I looked around this closet to fans and it doesn't add up so I go to Rudy and I see Rudy it's bad enough that we have this tiny crowd but now will go to lie about it like three or four times over and this is what he says did it ever occur to you you little wise asked that maybe maybe there are some people at the concession stands for the restrooms and I say Rudy let's test your promise let's suppose that was a sellout let's suppose there were nineteen thousand fans here what's the chance but at any given time although at halftime ninety five hundred of them are buying a hot dog or relieving themselves yes all closer because shops in game I used to go we're talking about because as I used to go to the Cincinnati Royals games and we would sneak in in I could eventually end up in the front row I I've sat in the front row when the bulls came to town with Howard Porter they had Jerry so I actually saw Jerry Sloan play in person Bob Weiss like all of these you know these yeah it was the Royals against the bulls and nobody cared then they would announce the crowd at like two thousand and one and we actually counted one night it was five hundred and nineteen because the game wasn't it interesting but you know they the whole we're gonna lie about the size of the crowd that I witnessed that first hand you know with the Cincinnati since I was but I don't know how that would affect you if you call the game and there's no crowd there how much you play off of that crowd when you're calling a game all you have to not just when the crowd surges on a big play are you dismissing that excitement but let's say it's just baseball there's a murmur of the crowd at all times I heard Joe Bach the other night on the real sports on HBO with Bryant Gumbel Joe thought there was some merit to the idea of pumping in crowds around yeah I don't know I'm fine everything you do you can try every out of the boxer under these circumstances I'm fine with that the V. bowls documentary you watchin yeah I haven't missed a second of it I think it's great what are you to come in because you're involved in this because NBC carried the NBA for certain such a long period of time you were there for Michael's final game with the bulls did you know at the time that was going to be his final game of the bulls I think we all strongly suspected it and that's why even as exciting and significant as that game was simply as an NBA finals earrings it was one of the past but my comments at the end I tried to frame it I didn't know for sure that it was the end but I assumed it was a very strong possibility so in addition to just calling it was a very exciting game I tried to frame it in in that context that this was the end of one of the most memorable runs by a team in American sports history and certainly one of the most transcendent players in any sport I don't know if Babe Ruth was his B. loved when he played when he went around these other parks because Michael is built was the love to get you know fans couldn't wait to see him even if he was gonna get forty on their team I don't know do you recall is Babe Ruth was I know he was a phenomenon but was he be loved the way Michael was beloved each town do I recall it first hand Daron and and it's just really hard on the ball game and and took my date on ladies day right thanks Walter Johnson the senator smart **** down now do you think that baby was was admired that way of anything you've ever heard or read yeah he was a gigantic force and even though it seems like well it doesn't seem like it is a hundred years ago in the nineteen twenties baseball in the country are moving into a different era you got the beginning of some kind of mass communication you got radio went and what not but still there's enough distance so that everything that someone like Ruth did over that matter a Jesse Owens were red Grange or Jack Dempsey any of the big bureaus of of that era Joe Louis a little bit later there's an element of misspent legend surrounding it and maybe some of the stories.

I mean, would we really care? Everyone's freaking out about the weather. Listen, if it rains, a rain's gonna delay a little bit. Maybe by a couple of hours from all reports that I've read about whether and I am no weatherman. Is gonna stop at one o'clock. So maybe delayed for a couple of hours to get the field ready. I don't know, man. Let's have a baseball game tomorrow. I will say usually like, whoever does the weather. I would prefer them to be like a hot chick. Do the weather now for me. I would totally watch. You do the weather the weather. I think you'd be really funny and good. Awful at it. I know I find it entertaining. Yeah. Would you really? Weathermen are they're such liars. They don't know what the hell they're talking about trying to predict mother nature, actually why. So I do. I don't know. It's a good question. There's some pretty good weatherman though. Right. Jim Carrey was Jim cantore is Jim cantore that his name. From the Weather Channel. He's always out there in the hurricanes. Bill Maher is pretty good Jim cantore his name. Yeah. Bill Maher our man who's who's the weatherman on anchorman. Is there weatherman brick right? Yeah. Yeah. The weather, man. The worst weatherman. But also, the the greatest man ever. That's it. Oh, did you see what does it say? The ego. The Padres are doing like the brewers do the sausage race. Yes. Hajer anchorman raisins. It's so great. Oh, man. That's a very creative. I liked the as they do like Dennis Eckersley, Rickey Henderson and smoke. Right. It's like, okay. But the best sausages. Great the anchorman run.
